Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Anywhere you can place an ad is great for you as a business, however it is up to you to find what works for each market. Too many times I have heard "I tried ads on a particular site but they don't work". What is more likely being said is "I put a few ads up but never received any contacts". You cannot expect a successful ad with out having a few unsuccessful attempts.  

Remember to track each ads performance! Your viewed ads will always fluctuate in their performance and the easiest way to track them is to open up an Excel spread sheet, copy the entire contents of your ad into a cell. In the cells beside it you can have categories for where you have it advertised and what its performance level is for each site it is advertised on. Track the ads weekly to see what is working where and what is not.

You can keep an unlimited number of ads this way and never delete old ads, as they can be recycled again in the future. This would apply to ads that had short but sweet success, in these cases they may just be ads that have a short shelf life but are still effective over a short period of time but can probably be reused with the same success a few months later.

The point is ads come in all shapes and sizes and so does their performance, if you utilize the peak performance for each ad you should see a jump in sales.   

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

Forum Etiquette - The Right Way to Use Forums

By Donald Saunders
There are literally hundreds of online forums these days and they can be extremely useful for anybody who runs an Internet business, providing you with the opportunity to make your name in your particular field and to attract visitors to your website. However, there are a few rules which are common to all forums and which you must follow if your are to succeed.

1. Do keep to the topic of the forum. Forums are designed as a meeting ground for like minded people and will normally cover a single topic or perhaps a small group of related topics. There is nothing which will upset members faster than posting content which is off topic.

2. Do include all of the necessary information in your posts. Whether you are asking or answering a question make things easy for forum members but including all of the necessary information in your posts. There is nothing worse that incomplete posts which then get dragged out by members having to ask for further details or for clarification.

3. Do be nice. It is a simple fact of life that forums attract people whose sole purpose in life seems to be to try to upset as many people as they can as quickly as they can. Do not react to such people when they enter into a discussion with you and deliberately try to provoke a reaction from you. No matter what comments are thrown at you be nice and polite to everybody and, if necessary, simply ignore rude posters rather than getting drawn into an argument with them.

4. Do not quote previous messages. Most forums use software which allows you to quote previous messages when adding a post to a thread but you should not do so unless it is absolutely necessary to make your point. People are perfectly capable of following a thread and adding in quotes simply makes the thread unnecessarily long and cluttered.

5. Do not spam a forum. If you are going to participate in a forum then your objective should be to gain recognition and establish yourself as an expert in your field by bringing real value to the forum. It should not be to simply advertise your product or service. It is generally possible to advertise your product or service through your forum signature block and you can also promote your product or service through your posts as long as you do so subtly and only where it is appropriate to do so.

Participating in forums can be a very good way to make contact with your target audience and find out exactly what your customers are looking for. However, it is vitally important that you follow the rules of a forum and make a genuine contribution to the discussion if you are to get a good return on your investment as a forum participant.

 10 Absolutely Essential eBusiness Building Principles

By Tom Klos
Does starting an eBusiness appeal to you? Or are you struggling with an existing eBusiness? For most entrepreneurs, the opportunity of running and operating a business from anywhere with an Internet connection is too enticing to pass up. The excitement, however, soon deflates as the hard work of making an eBusiness successful becomes reality. Here are the top 10 absolutely essential principles to make your eBusiness a success:

1. Find a need and address it
2. Leverage existing services - YouTube, MySpace, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
3. Use what you know and love - this will help you become an authority in the area and help you persevere in hard times.
4. Use offline marketing - advertise in newspapers, use business cards and print materials, etc.
5. Be patient
6. Choose a domain name wisely - dot com is best. The shorter and easy to remember and spell the better.
7. Content is key - write clear Web copy that is not cold and impersonal.
8. Have a call to action - make it easy for visitors to buy and contact you.
9. Build trust and confidence - show your address and telephone number. Use testimonials.
10. Build a professional website - it doesn't need to be a complex website. In fact, simple designs that are clean with easy-to-use navigation and that make good use of white space and color are best.

There is no magic formula. Nothing replaces hard work but hard work must be well directed and spent. The aforementioned 10 principles will help you get a solid footing on starting and building your eBusiness.

Common Technical Questions

Why do I not get the contact information of visitors to my ads? I get an email telling me they visited but all it has is an IP address is there a way to get the contact information?

One way to think about this, what if you are surfing the internet, would you expect that every time you visit a site your contact information would be made available to the site you just visited? Of course not. Responses to your advertisement are email messages we send to you when a visitor to our site clicks on the heading of your ad.

When this happens, our visitor is redirected to your site. 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. The most effective way to capture the visitors contact information is to offer a free catalog, e-document, e-zine or some form of free download that would be of interest to the visitor. You would need their email address to send them the freebie and you would also have the email for your follow up.

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