Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Customer service can't be as important to an Internet Business as it is with an office or store front business? After all you are not dealing face to face with anyone and you have their email so you can write back when you are ready right? I'm gonna answer wrong! I don't want to go on a big rant here, but trust and service are vital requirements to the sale or your future sales. Now we can't promise lightning service in returning questions or comments or offer 24/7 service, we can however give them a sense of security which will build trust.

The internet home business is usually run by one person, sometimes two if it's a family affair. This means that we are usually running with limited resources and time. This does not mean we can't do it, we simply need to build a buffer, some built in time to give us the opportunity to respond. We have to use a 24 hour response time (during business hours) to allow us to respond, even though we have the staff and the resources we can never predict the amount of requests we will get and even we can get overwhelmed at times.

My suggestion to a Home Internet business is to post a response time, this will give the potential customer an expectation as to when they can expect a reply, make sure to post a response time that will make you look effective. As an example if you are working another job or unable to respond to questions immediately, double the amount of time it would normally take for you to do this and post that on your website as your expected response time to requests. Your product or service will remain in the back of their mind until they get an answer if it's with in the expected time and this will also begin to build the trust that they are looking for.       

As always and feedback or questions are always welcome, just click on my name below

Sincerely, Barry Scott Editor

Blog Writing Tips - 1 - Have a Voice

By Christo Fox
1 - Have a Voice

When you are writing a blog it is important to try and imagine you are in a room of highly opinionated, loud and arrogant people. To be heard you must have a unique, distinct and dynamic voice; this is the key to success in the blogworld! Blogs are meant to personal expressions or opinions about a news topic, event or piece of information. People love to read blogs usually because they connect with the blog writer in some way or they have conflicting views about what the blog writer has written.

Anyone can find information on the Internet, it's just a matter of typing in a few keywords on Google and the information will usually present itself in a matter of minutes. However, finding someone's opinion on that piece of information is a lot harder. People who seek blogs are usually highly opinionated and are only looking for a blog to either agree or disagree with it. This is where having a voice is important.

The sole reason people write blogs is to generate activity. If they wanted nobody to read what they had written, they would write the blog offline. The only way to generate activity is to stand out from the millions of bloggers by having a unique voice that can be heard all through the Internet jungle. When writing a blog the best way to distinguish your voice is to either side positively or negatively with whatever you are writing about. The goal here is to make readers either agree or disagree with what you have written. If they do this then chances are they will leave a comment.

When a person comments on your blog, this can often lead to a chain reaction of comments that could potentially catapult your blog into the upper echelons of the blogworld. People will comment back and fourth until the issue is resolved, whatever that issue may be. In fact, it's very common to find a comment writer who has a louder voice then the actual blog writer. This person will usually write a controversial comment that is so powerful it essentially takes over the blog. All comments after this will typically be directed at the comment writer, instead of the blog writer.

Technorati is currently tracking almost 115 million blogs and there are reports of close to 73 million blogs in China alone. In comparison the Australian population only just breaks 20 million. When you are in a crowd of people like this in reality and you want to be heard, the average person typically screams loudly to attract as much attention as possible, but often this doesn't work and just seems to add to the "noise". To really be heard you must project a sense of authority and direction. Some natural born leaders can simply stand up on a chair, in a sea of people, and command their undivided attention, with nothing more then a hand gesture. The point here is that "screaming" in blogs is not the correct way to create a buzz and stir up some activity. Screaming strains your blog voice and will only keep people amused for a limited time. Anyone can write controversial rubbish, stick it up on the Internet and hope for the best, but the trick is doing it in a such a way that it makes you stand out and gives you an online voice that is so clear, it can be identified by the text itself. The good bloggers are so unique they no longer have to put their name on the blog, the writing speaks for itself. People can read a blog and automatically know it was written by their favorite blogger just by the way the blog is structured.

In conclusion...

- When using your blog voice try and side either positively or negatively with what you are writing about. Do not sit in the middle; nobody likes a fence sitter.

- When projecting your blog voice, remember you are actually talking to people. You are not having a conversation with yourself. If you do this correctly, chances are they will comment back and this activity will spark a chain reaction.

- When using your blog voice, do not scream. Nobody likes the loud person who shouts over people. The key here is to build up your voice so that it demands undivided attention. You should be able to get your point across constructively, without shouting.

What Your Online Marketing Business SHOULD Provide

By Kathy Vincent
Today, there are boatloads of online businesses to choose from. They all claim to be the best. So, how do you know which one to choose? Join the one that provides the following and you will be safely sailing towards success.

Your online marketing business should provide:

- Easy to follow, step-by-step, hands-on training. Don't just settle for handwritten instructions - not with today's technology. Your business should be using all of the latest and greatest educational tools known to man.

- Unbelievable live support. You shouldn't have to rely on just your coach or the person who signed you up to help you with any questions you may have. You should have full access, during reasonable business hours, to the actual owners themselves. Sound too good to be true? It's not.

- A 100% payout compensation plan. Yes, you read that correctly. Sound too good to be true again? It's not. It exists. And it works.

- Autoresponders, cash generating websites, marketing campaigns and other top-of-the-line automated tools.

- A duplicatable way to earn the money you need for your online marketing business and personal needs.

- Ongoing product development. You want your online marketing business to be changing when times and ways of doing things change.

- A marketing team that closes the deal for you through live webinars.

- An affordable way to enter in at more than one level for maximum income earning.

There is a marketing business that provides all this and more. Does yours? If not, don't stop looking until you find it.

Common Technical Questions

Why can't you show the email address of the person that clicked on my ad?

Responses to your advertisement are email messages sent to you when visitors to our site click on the heading of your ad.

When this happens, our visitor is redirected to your site and at the same time, a message is being sent to you (if you selected this option) to notify you that a user has visited your site.

This option helps you to analyze the effectiveness of your advertising. Those messages act like simple hit counters for your ad when you have no other sophisticated tools to track your responses. 

In some cases when the user who clicked on your ad is our registered Adland Pro user, your confirmation email will contain a link to contact this person.

There is no ethical way to capture an email address from a viewer unless the choose to give it to you. Imagine what would happen to the internet if you could get someone's email address just by visiting a site. 

If you have any questions regarding email notifications or if we can help in anyway please contact us.
