Word from Moderator

Hello everyone from a VERY HOT Loutraki!

For those that have no idea what a “Loutraki” is, let me give you a short tour :)
Loutraki is a town about 80 km south of Athens near the famous from the time of
antiquity city of Corinth. It is famous for its water, which it also bottles and sells
throughout Greece. It still has baths and people with problems from gall stones to
arthritis come here for therapy. It has developed into a popular resort town due to its
beach that stretches out for several kilometers. There is a popular Casino here that
draws big crowds. Yes, they even planted palm trees here… he he.
Well, that takes care of the “vacation spot” commercial for the day! Now, back to
business! I would like some input from you guys…

interesting for you? Please click on “Comments” below and send us your ideas, OK?

What would you tell a “newbie”?
========================

Thousands of new users enter the Internet for the first time every day. Some of them
trickle over to home business opportunity websites and decide to try them out. They
come from all over the world and have various levels of computer expertise and/or
business expertise. They may be a little timid of the Internet, a bit weary of joining
your program or shopping at your website.
How do you build up the confidence of your new members/customers/users – OR- if
you yourself are a “newbie”, what are the things you look for to make you feel more
comfortable “living” online?

I don’t agree, William. E-mail is going through difficulties, true. It’s due to overload
in our e-mail boxes, spam and misuse. Nonetheless, although I delete 90% of my
email as a matter of routine, I ALWAYS open certain email I consider valuable.
Messages from my mentor get first priority. Certain newsletters and e-zines that have
proved their worth I also read through very thoroughly.
Changes on the Internet happen every day and I feel privileged when a “friend”
brings the information to my mailbox and saves me the trouble of searching all over
the net for it!


Warm Regards,

Re: Website Promotion Through Newsletters
From: Paul Jesse

Website promotion is certainly a main focus of all business owners and their
respective Web sites; however it is not something that happens overnight. This is
because once you have a new Web site it takes a bit of time before search engines
upload your URL and it becomes part of search results. Also, while your Web page
might be returned in the results of free search engines, it will still not relate to the
amount of traffic you want. As a result, there is one particular way to increase traffic
to your Web site that is inexpensive, and that is web site promotion through
newsletters.

Many newsletter editors online are looking for new information from new business
all the time. However, they generally do not want to pay for the article you write but
rather prefer to trade a byline or a small advertisement for your business or web
page. As a result, all you need to do is spend a few hours writing a newsletter that
discusses a relevant topic and that also has a plug for your web page. This is a way
for you to quickly get the word out about your web page as well as increase traffic
and business while you are waiting for the search engines to get your information in
the system and part of the search results.

Finding newsletter editors online that need information submitted and will allow you
to trade a newsletter for an advertisement plug is not difficult and all you need to do
is search your favorite search engine. However, whatever newsletter editor you are
writing for, you will want to make sure its subscribers are part of your niche or it
might not prove very successful for you.

Make sure, however, you do not transfer the copyright of your article to anyone, but
only grant the right to print your newsletter. By doing this, you can submit this one
newsletter to multiple ezines and the like and reach many more potential subscribers
than you would with only one. Also, it saves you time because you do not have to
write new newsletters for every ezine. When you write the resource box for your
advertisement, make sure you include your entire web site address so individuals can
simply click on the address and be taken directly to your page rather than having to
cut and paste. The easier you make it, the more individuals will take a look at what
you have to offer. Also, you might consider using different advertisements from time
to time in order to rate which ones are most productive at getting individuals to
actually click on the link. The one that generates the most traffic is certainly the one
you want to use, however you will need to play with your advertisement a little in
order to get it just like you want and have it generate the most traffic possible for
your new web site.

====================GUEST ARTICLE =====================

Guide to Internet Business - Website Setup, by Steven O. Ng
============================================

After planning the design and content of your website, it's time to actually physically
set up your website. This is the step where you put all your designs and plans into
action, creating a website that will attract visitors and earn income.

a) WEBHOSTING

A webhost is a company that stores the pages and pictures and other files of your
website. When a person visits your website, they will request these files from your
webhost's server so they can view the website. When choosing a webhost, be careful
to choose one that is reliable. After all, if your webhost has problems for any reason,
people won't be able to visit your website, and you won't be earning any money.

In addition, different webhosts have varying services and tools that they offer. Some
of the more important points to consider when choosing a webhost are as follows:

SPACE AND BANDWIDTH - Space refers to how much file storage space is
available for your website. For a standard website with about 20 pages with graphics,
30MB is plenty. Online stores might require more space depending on how many
products and pictures you have. Bandwidth refers to how many files can be
downloaded and viewed by visitors per month. A normal website with reasonable
traffic (200 visitors a day) will need about 2GB bandwidth. Again, if you own a
business with lots of products and webpages, you might need more bandwidth.
DOMAINS AND SUBDOMAINS - Usually, webhosting accounts are charged per
domain, with $10 per domain being a reasonable price. However, you can buy larger
hosting packages that allow you to host multiple domains and websites on the same
account. Subdomains are just different sections of your website's domain, with 5
subdomains the rough standard. You will need to make sure how many domains your
account entitles you for, in order to calculate which is the better webhosting package.
EMAILS AND AUTORESPONDERS - Emails are the various email addresses that
visitors can write to you. Most websites will use about 2 or 3 emails (maybe a
webmaster email and a support email). Autoresponders are email addresses that will
reply someone with an automatic email. You will only need autoresponders if you
are on vacation and wish to leave an automated reply in case anybody emails you.
SCRIPTS - If you want to add extra functionality (such as forums or polls), you will
need to be able to run scripts. Make sure your webhost allows you to run scripts for
your website. The more common scripts are Java, PHP, Perl and CGI.
There are a number of companies out there that offer free webhosting, but they
usually have severe limitations, and might place their own ads on your website. If
you are serious in building your internet business, it is recommended to sign up for a
proper webhosting service. We recommend HostGator, which provides different
levels of webhosting depending on your requirements and budget, with various
useful tools as well. In any case, you shouldn't be paying more than $10 a month per
domain for basic webhosting services.

b) PROGRAMMING

Some people with sufficient HTML knowledge use word processing programs to
directly code the HTML for their websites. For the rest of us who don't have such
skill, we recommend one of the popular graphical programs like Macromedia
Dreamweaver or Microsoft Frontpage. These programs allow you to create your
webpages with mouse clicks with little need for knowledge in HTML.

If you want to make your website look like another website, you can "copy" their
HTML and modify it to fit your website. In Internet Explorer, click the "View"
menu, then click the "Source" option. This will show you the HTML code for the
website. You will need some HTML knowledge to make sense of this and use it on
your website.

If you need more information and examples on the many things that HTML can do,
you can visit the online tutorial at W3Schools.

c) FILE ORGANIZATION AND TRANSFER

Once you have your webhosting set up and your webpages completed, you need to
transfer the completed pages to your webhosting server. If you are using a graphical
program like Dreamweaver to work on your webpages, you can configure
Dreamweaver to transfer the files for you.

If you are doing it manually, you need to transfer the files via FTP. Your webhost
will provide you with an FTP server, with a user id and password for you to access
your account on the webhost. Once you connect to the account via FTP, you will be
able to upload (transfer files from your computer to the server) or download (transfer
files from the server to your computer) or modify files as required.

You can FTP to the server using your computer's Windows Explorer, by entering the
FTP server's address in your explorer's Address Toolbar. Or you can use specialized
FTP programs such as AceFTP.

d) ADDITIONAL SCRIPTS

If you want to add extra functionality to your website, such as polls, newsletter
subscription forms and other interactive programs, you will need to install scripts
onto your website.

If you are looking for scripts to create a newsletter mailing list, do note that some
webhosting services also provide mailing list scripts. If your webhost doesn't provide
it, BigNoseBird has a good email list management software.

For other scripts and functionality, you can check out the popular scripts at websites
such as BigNoseBird and HotScripts.

When you've finished setting up your website and getting it launched, the next step
will be to start looking at the various means to attract visitors at:

================JOKE OF THE DAY==================

Memory Problems
==============

An elderly man who denies he is being forgetful was asked by his wife to get a cup of
coffee at midnight.
"Oh sure my dear, and what else?"
"That's it honey, the last time you got me a coffee, you forgot to put sugar and cream," the
old wife remarked.
"That's not true, for as long as I can remember, I do not forget anything,” boasts the
grandpa.
"OK sweetheart, in that case, please get me some cookies too," was the sweet reply of
grandma.
"As you wish my dear," says the hubby, then he adds, "by the way, how do I go to the
kitchen?"
