<---Start
Most online entrepreneurs don't realize, and subsequently never unlock the
potential of Internet classified ads. They are capable of generating a
terrific amount of FREE publicity and revenue, if you play your cards right.

Electronic classified ads are very similar to print ads in your newspaper.
However, they are much more powerful considering they can be displayed and
accessed worldwide, as opposed to a newspaper's specific geographic or
circulation area.

The beauty of online classifieds is the fact you can use them as "tests" to
see what headlines, content, slogans, and prices attract noteworthy
attention and those that lack appeal. You then combine the most effective
components into one spectacular ad that can be splashed across every
classified site in existence. Extensive exposure with the right ad will
round-up a hefty herd of new traffic to your website
.....

Top 10 Internet Scams.



(1) Internet auction fraud
Consumers say they've received an item that is less valuable than
promised, or don't receive the item at all.

(2) Internet service provider scams
Reports of being trapped into long-term contracts of ISPs with big
penalties for cancellation.

(3) Web site design/promotions -- Web cramming
Getting a custom-designed Web site for a 30-trial period could be
more than what was bargained for.

(4) Internet information and adult services -- credit card cramming
Using a credit card to prove being older than 18 years could prove
costly.

(5) Multilevel marketing/pyramid scams
Some multilevel marketing programs are actually illegal pyramid
schemes.

(6) Business opportunities and work-at-home scam
Promises of earning "big money" while sitting at home are often too
good to be true.

(7) Investment schemes and get-rich-quick scams
Making an initial investment in a day trading operation claims to
offer huge returns.

(8) Travel/vacation fraud
The lure of a cheap trip with "extras" at a bargain-basement price
often doesn't reveal hidden charges and additional requirements.

(9) Telephone/pay-per-call solicitation fraud
"Free" access to adult material and pornography by downloading a
"viewer" or "dialer" program is cause for concern. Through the
program, consumers reported their modem being disconnected, then
reconnected to the Internet through an international long-distance
number.

(10) Health care frauds
Items not sold through traditional suppliers are "proven" to cure
serious and even fatal health problems, but in actuality people lose
money to these sites.

==========C o n t i n u i n g D i s c u s s i o n (1.1)=============
From: "Melanie Kozik" <custsup@jam21.net>
Subject: Goto.com and affiliate programs

Hi Adlanders - I am responding to 2 posts from the past 2 digests:

The theories on goto.com - Tom Falco said:

1)  "It is screwed up - the money just disappears without giving me
any business"
2)  "goto is rigged - pouring money down a rathole"

wow--Those are some really serious claims!

3)  "competitors deliberately clicking on link to deplete account"

I'd like to talk about those claims if I may.  goto has in place a
system where by they monitor clickthru's and IF this happens, they
give you money back.  I know, it happened to me.  I wasn't even
aware of it and they came to me and said *hay - we owe you
because someone was over clicking on your link*

Next - IF goto were rigged, they would not have been around so
long.  They are only growing bigger every day with more and more
customers who are very happy with their service, me included.
Yes, goto is definitely worth pennies for highly targeted searches.
So is 7search, and the like.

Next - if the people who are clicking on your link are not buying
from your site-do you think it might be the site?  I mean instead of
blameing goto for stealing from you, perhaps you might want to
take a look at that avenue.

I don't work for goto ;}  I have been a customer for a long time.  I
buy cheap highly focused words that do not have competition.  I
pay 1-2 cents and let the others jocky for 3$ words.  They bring me
highly focused buyers and what I have found with doing that is I get
bookmarked and people come back when they need me.  And
THAT is the point.  I get #1 spots for SENTENCES!  How can you
beat that?  So many people type in a complete sentence when
looking for something Very specific.

Anyway-I also love the new hootingowl model--but who wouldn't? :}
Check it out at my site.

Tom also said:

"Even if you were listed with yahoo and all the top search engines,
do you honestly think you would be anywhere near the top? These
ecommerce businesses are scams. "

Yes, Tom-I do because I am.  Your blanket statements that *these
ecommerce businesses are scams* is simply not true.  Sure,
some are scams.  But the vast majority are not!  For anyone
interested in the affiliate model-you might want to check out:

http://www.affiliateunion.com

One CAN make a lot of money being affiliated with the right
programs.  It is a huge compliment to my regular business.
Branch out--to make a lot of money online it is beneficial for you to
have multiple streams of income.  I cannot stress that enough.
Multiple streams of income.  Many 50-100 $ checks each month
add up fast.

To all your success - All the best

Bogdan,
I know I have seen some information from a lady in

looked simple to use, and was FREE.
Cannot find it anywhere. Have you seen it?
Thanks for help even though this message is very

Subject: Help me with free mailing list management

To:Adland List

Hello to all that read this. I need to explain my
problem and then I would like a number of solutions.

Problem:
I am a budding Publisher/Editor of a newsletter
called Ladder2SuccessEzine.I have published one issue
and did so without too much trouble.However, I have
just tried to publish the second issue and my software
program failed.
I now have a subscribers base of 170 and don'ty have
a way to mail out my list.
I cannot afford to pay for sending it out. I prefer
not to use Topica or any other mailer. I do prefer to mail to my own list .
I like to do it myself. The software program that failed was Aureate Mailing
Program.

If I use my emails for instance- Yahoo,@home,Excite,
Email, will I be kicked off?
Does anyone have a free, not too complicated, reliable
method or system I can use to send my newsletter to my
subscriber base?

Thanks,
Heston Nolan,

Subject: Marketing Course.


Dear Bogdan,

I am an avid reader of Adland digest. I have been reading a
lot of "How to get traffic?", "How to start?" etc. in your
digest.

I just finished writing a 7-day course for newbies and
frustrated netpreneurs... and would like to offer it to your
readers. This step-by-step, easy-to-understand course will
clear most of the newbies question and will give a lot of
insight to netpreneurs who are on the verge of quitting.

I suggest you read the course first and then only recommend
it to your readers, if you feel so.

Go to => http://www.raovishal.com/course.htm

Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Vishal Rao

===================G u e s t A r t i c l e =====================
Can You Hear Yourself Lead?
By Bob Scheinfeld

Do you find days turning into weeks, which turn into years
and suddenly you're not sure where it's all gone?  Does it
seem like your no longer navigating your own life but your
life and your schedule are navigating you instead?  Can you
hear yourself lead?  Can you hear yourself .period?  If this
describes you, stop.  Just stop.  Stand still, be still,
and let yourself remember what the silence feels like.

So often in the world we call business, we go so fast we
lose our ability to keep up when, in fact, keeping up is
impossible.  Simply put, if you're caught up, you're out
of business.  Business is the competitive pull and push that
can kick our navigational system clean out of whack.  To
get back in control, you have to stop and listen.  It's as
deceptively easy as that.  But wait, not just listen. Listen
to yourself.

We are taught to listen to everyone else.  That listening
is the greater asset.  However, we are never taught to listen
to ourselves.  Creativity dies in the face of too much noise.
 Without creativity everything in your life suffers, including
your business.  Sometimes the most important person to listen
to is ..you.  Yes, you have something to say but if you never
stop to listen you won't ever get back to navigating again.

So here's what you can do to put yourself back in the driver's
seat:

1. Start the day by emptying your emotions into a journal.
 Let all the emotional garbage out on paper.  Now, don't
read it. Ever.  Too hard to do?  Rip it up and throw it away.
 This is just a tool to get the frustrations processed and
out of your life so you can move on.  So you can hear yourself
think again.  Sometimes our lives get filled up with everyone
else's chatter.  This helps us empty that out.

2. Take 15 minutes out of the middle of your day and rest.
 Just stop.everything.  Go to a room; take off the phone,
the fax, the instant messenger and the ringer on your email.
 Find a place where you won't be bothered and stop.  Take
ten deep breaths.  Let your mind empty.  Try to spend at
least five minutes of the fifteen thinking of nothing.  Don't
laugh, it's really hard to do.  Think of nothing.  Empty
your brain and give your soul a rest.

3. Walk.  Walking doesn't just exercise your body, it relaxes
your soul.  Walk with a friend, or walk alone, but walk.
 This isn't about exercise, it's about letting your mind
breath, outside, in the rain, in the sun, in the snow..in
the fresh air.  It works!

4. Okay, this is the most important.  At the end of the day,
spend another 15 minutes writing down all the advice that
was given to you today.  All those noteworthy, seemingly
wise bits of advice that get hurled at us everyday.  It doesn't
matter where they came from, a book, a phone call, a radio
station..doesn't matter.  If you can remember it write it
down.  Now read them all.  Do any of them feel adverse to
your own feelings and thoughts?  Great, cross them out and
forget them.  Learn to trust that some things will work for
you and some things won't.  Once you have learned this principle
you will find yourself getting back into the drivers seat
of your own life again.

Remember you're important too and you are the only one that
lives the results and consequences of your own life.  Be
gentle with yourself and take the time to take the time.
 Suddenly hours will screech back to normal speed, life will
feel worth the effort, and your goals will be realized again.

======================Joke of the Day=====================

A group of senior citizens were exchanging notes about their
ailments.

"My arm is so weak I can hardly hold this coffee cup."

"Yes, I know.  My cataracts are so bad I can't see to pour
the coffee."

"I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck."

"My blood pressure pills make my dizzy."

"I guess that's the price we pay for getting old."

"Well, it's not all bad.  We should be thankful that we can still
drive!"
