Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Hello Adlanders, I just read an article in a reputable magazine stating they felt the economic trend is moving towards "very optimistic". It seemed like a positive thing to read through and it made feel good to which I though this is good news, however I began to really think about what I read and wondered is this really true?

The reason I bring this up is we see plenty of stories in plenty of magazines that read either as very optimistic and moving forward or we are headed for or will continue into  dire times. I guess this type of news help sell magazines and newspapers but the fact of the matter is both sides of these stories are happening it just depend where you are located in the country and what industry you are in as to how your affected. There is no blanket message either side can provide that can be applied to a national level as a whole.  

I can say we are optimistic about this year (2010) and we have already seen many positive changes. There are more people coming back to advertise or be involved with our Affiliate Marketing program and the Adlandpro Community which is now over 100,000 members is buzzing. Things are certainly looking better but that may not apply for everyone in the industry or in general across the country. We understand that and if there is a way we can help, with our free ads, affiliate marketing program or if you need some help or advice with trying to market a new product, please do not hesitate to contact us. These are the times when we should be helping each other out for the good of everyone.

Sincerely, Barry Scott Editor

Writing a Business Plan For Your Internet Business

By Stephen L. Nelson
Business planning for a new Internet or online business can be tricky. In many cases, the businesses struggle along, unprofitably, for a period of time--so it's important in the beginning to keep the operation lean.

However, while Internet businesses often start off slow, they can (thankfully) explode with revenues and profits, which means that suddenly the web-based entrepreneur has all sorts of good problems and puzzles to solve.

And of course, there's also a dark side to web-based businesses that produce windfall profits. Just as they can quickly ramp-up in revenue, cash flows and profitability, they can just as easily implode.

The unique financial characteristics of Internet business, accordingly, suggest several business planning strategies:

Internet Business Planning Tip #1: Use a Limited Liability Company

Often in online businesses, you want to protect yourself as much as possible from unnecessary legal risks. The Internet, of course, can be a dangerous place to do business. Not everyone with whom you transact business is someone you'd feel comfortable taking home to meet the family.

Operating as a regular, traditional corporation represents one simple way to reduce your legal liability. However, a corporation automatically requires fairly complex accounting (including the requirement to do formal payroll.) Furthermore, a corporation means you'll be doing separate federal and state corporate income tax returns, which are expensive and complicated.

As an alternative to a corporation, therefore, consider using a limited liability company. A limited liability company should provide your online business with the same legal protection as a corporation. But a limited liability company, if it's owned by a single person, won't require a separate corporate income tax return. Instead the LLC's income and deductions will get reported on the owner's regular tax return.

In summary, using an LLC rather than a corporation means you keep things nice and cheap in the beginning--when cash flows may be pretty lean.

Internet Business Planning Tip #2: Elect for Corporate Tax Status If Profits Ramp Up

A quick tip: Tax laws allow you to elect to have your LLC treated as a corporation later on down the road. And you may want to do this if your online business takes off.

An LLC taxed as an S corporation can save you scads of Social Security and Medicare taxes. And an LLC taxed as a C corporation (your other option) can, in some special situations, save you substantial taxes, too.

Internet Business Planning Tip #3: Setup and Use a Real Accounting System

One big advantage of an Internet business is this: Typically the accounting is pretty easy.

Accounting for an online business is easy, by the way, for a couple of reasons: First, someone else (like PayPal or the affiliated company you're marketing for) often does much of the accounting work for you, collecting and processing the individual transactions.

A second reason that accounting for an online business is easy is this: Typically your financial data is available at someone else's website (perhaps even your bank) for down-loading directly into your accounting system.

Because accounting for an Internet business is or should be easy, therefore, you really ought to go to the very modest effort of getting something like QuickBooks up and running to do your bookkeeping. (Probably, you won't even have to enter much of the data yourself... some website will do the lion's share of the work.)

With a good set of books, you'll be able to better manage your business. And with a good set of books, you'll definitely save on your taxes by capturing more of your legitimate business deductions.

Internet Business Planning Tip #4: Scenario Plan for Windfalls

One final business planning tip should be considered when you're talking about an online business. And here it is... You should have a plan for what to do if you're lucky enough to enjoy a big financial windfall. In other words, you ought to think ahead about how you'll deal with any large financial windfall that your online business produces.

A really good way to handle a portion of any windfall, by the way, is to tuck away funds into a pension plan. In other words, if you find yourself with a $100,000 or a $1,000,000 surprise, see if there isn't a way to stash a goodly portion of this amount into a pension.

Any accountant or financial planner can give you specific details on the options available in your situation, but know from the start that you can rather easily store away tens of thousands of dollars a year into pension options like SEP-IRAs, Simple-IRAs, 401(k) plans and even a few other options as well. (If you're married and you can get your spouse on the payroll, you can stash away as much as $100,000 a year, tax free, with little headache or hassle.)

Here's the rationale for this suggestion: The one common feature of Internet business success is that the success typically isn't very long-lived. And you'll never be sorry if you salt away a bunch of money from your blow-out years in the online business.

 3 Simple Steps to Follow For Newbies Creating Content For an Ebook

By Darren Todd
Creating your very first product may at first appear to be incredibly overwhelming, just remember that this is one of the fastest growing industry's and that authors haven't just appeared or indeed crawled out of the woodwork; 85% are self taught! It really doesn't have to be a difficult process if you follow what I say and use my resources. I guarantee that if you start with master resell products soon you will want to start altering, chopping and changing the content to progress to private label rights where you can do just that!

Now with this new found confidence you're sure going to want to start from scratch with your own product, follow my three simple steps and you will soon fast track your way to success and freedom!

1) Pay attention to the initial steps of planning. Firstly identify the area of interest you would like to research then check out if they are hot topics for example internet marketing or making money online are red hot, whilst it doesn't have to be hot it will help selling the finished product. Careful research coupled with the use of Google analytics can help identify other suitable niches. Start with a couple of products with master resell rights you can study these and get a feel for the wording and how they have been cemented together you can sell these and keep 100% of the profit. Try and read these two books at least twice a day you will be really surprised how you start to use new words yourself. Next trick, try and write out your favourite pages writing by hand this really re- programs your conscious and subconscious mind.

2) Now you are successfully selling ebooks online search for products that you can start to alter, we call these little gems private label rights products and you can pretty much change these as you like. You can add more up to date information, change the graphics ( if the thought of technical computer stuff scares you it can be outsourced at sites like elance good graphics don't cost much and really give the book a modern feel!) but most importantly you can add your name to this so all the time you are gaining credibility and of course if you picked your target market correctly you will have no problems selling your new products!

3) O.K. you are now familiar with how it all works it is time to start formulating a plan to produce your very own money making ebook. Whilst it is going to be challenging it is also going to be fun. Firstly research collate as much interesting information as possible, get this by reading other ebooks, YouTube demonstrations are incredibly useful and the public library is also packed with information. Formulate the book by addressing the problem it is trying to remedy, next with your solution this part should be crammed full of answers to the problem reinforced with creditable facts, and then thirdly, the benefits of the solution, including how your book will help improve the answers to their questions.

Common Technical Questions

I had purchased Traffic Exchange/Impression credits and they ran out and now it shows me as having negative credits, am I obligated to pay for those?

No. Our system for both the Traffic Exchange and the Impressions (Banner/Text) display will always overrun and produce a negative credit balance. The reason is that when the system is aware that you account is getting low on credits or you are at a level where it will get ready to stop, but it cannot account for the views that are in the queue as traffic to our site fluctuates on a daily basis.

So your Ad/Banner may be set up to run in the next few minutes and because we are dealing with 1000s of displays per hour the database cannot account for the credits that will be displayed in queue and will run regardless of the credit balance. Therefore the TE and Impressions will always run into the negative which works to the member's advantage as the member is not accountable for overdrawn credits.
