If you own a local retail store or local service business where customers come into your office or shop, you’re going to love this report. I’m going to show you how to maximize your current customer base and improve sales by using NON-spam email.

Every business needs to have a great website, but for this you don’t even need a website to do what I’m going to show you here. This method is so simple, but overlooked by most local business owners, that when I explain this simple system to you, you’ll be kicking yourself that you didn’t think of it sooner. Best of all, you can start using this system TODAY.

If you’re running a local business of any kind:

  • cleaners
  • pet supply shop
  • hair salon
  • grocery store
  • lawn service
  • window washer
  • ice cream shop
  • dentist
  • personal trainer
  • transmission repair shop, etc…

…you should be using email RIGHT NOW to increase your profits.

Let’s say you own a local hair salon, for example. Obviously no one is going to go on the Internet looking for a hair stylist. People will not type the words “hair salons” in a search engine to find a local hair salon. So what you should do is maximize the income potential of every local customer that does frequent your establishment.

Here’s what you do: When a customer is paying for their service and they come to your register, make sure you collect their contact information. You want to get their first name, last name and email address logged into your database. I’m sure next to your cash register you have a computer where you could easily enter this information. If you don’t have a computer next to your cash register…GET ONE!

Or you could simply write down this information on a sheet of paper to be transferred to your database later on. If the concept of a database seems to complex, just enter the information about each customer in a simple text file. The text file should look like this:

“EMAIL”,”FIRST NAME”,”LAST NAME”
“EMAIL”,”FIRST NAME”,”LAST NAME”
.
.
.
“EMAIL”,”FIRST NAME”,”LAST NAME”

That’s it! If someone asks you what you need this information for, tell them it’s for your “preferred customer list” to tell them about specials being offered at your establishment before the general public hears about them.

Don’t say “mailing list.” No one wants to be on some old, impersonal, stuffy “mailing list.” But a “preferred customer list” sounds more valuable. Which would you rather be on? I think it’s pretty obvious.

Do this for EVERY customer that comes through and leaves your doors. What you’ll notice is that after doing this for a month, you should have a few hundred or a few thousand email addresses of customers. Now that you have their email address and name, you can contact these people as often as you like by email for FREE. Instead of sending postcards, letters or paying someone to call past customers about new products/services or specials that you offer.

You can simply send them a small email notice FREE!

This is NOT spamming. These people have given you permission to email them. After all, they voluntarily gave you their email address. They have used the products or services of your shop. They love what you sell. Yes, they will be happy to hear from you by email. They will consider this EXCELLENT customer service interaction.

So what you do next is whenever you have a new product, service or special you want to announce – first hit your “preferred customer” list with and email announcement. This should help you generate some quick cash for your business.

Just because the Internet is global, doesn’t mean it isn’t local. In preparing your business to be online, you will need a website. Now, the purpose of your website will be a little different than the purpose of a website owner who sells to an international audience.

If you want to keep your business local, your goal should be to make your business as efficient as possible by using the Internet. The first thing you must do is take inventory of how you spend your time. You probably spend more time running your business than actually servicing and selling to customers. Once you pinpoint where you spend most of your time (usually doing non profit-making activities), then you will know how to craft your website so that your website takes care of these non profit-making tasks for you.

Once this is achieved, then you can turn MORE of your attention to servicing and selling to customers…where the money is found! Let’s go through a few non profit-making tasks that you probably do each day that you can use your website to manage for you:

People call and ask for sales information or to get more details about what you sell. They ask routine questions like:

  • “What time do you open?”
  • “What time do you close?”
  • “When can I schedule an appointment?”
  • “How much of a deposit do I have to put down?”
  • “What forms of payment do you accept?”

These are questions your website should be handling for you. If you had a commonly asked questions section on your website, you could simply direct potential customers there. And, in all of your ads you would have your website address listed so that prospects could find the answers to these routine questions so they don’t ask you.

Believe me, most people will go there first to learn more about your business. Especially, as your local area gets more connected to the Internet each day. This ultimately means less people will call you to ask these routine questions.

  • Your sales literature changes constantly. Prices change. The types of services and products you sell change. So your sales literature is never really up to date. If your sales literature was online, you could easily change prices, products and services offered, office hours, etc – and it wouldn’t cost you a penny.
  • You aren’t as prompt with mailing sales information as you would like to be. Here’s where your website would come in handy. Instead of mailing your sales literature or explaining what you do over the phone (killing precious minutes), you could direct people to your website for these details. When they call you, after visiting your website, they will be better informed about what you do, how you do it, and when it can be done. This means you will spend less time explaining and more time providing the actual service or selling the item desired.

When preparing for the creation of your website, you should concentrate on the following critical areas:

  • Commonly asked questions. For one week write down every question people ask when they call your shop or enter your office. These questions and your responses to each will be the foundation of a commonly asked questions section of your website. Be as complete in your answers as you can be. The more complete you are, the less people will call you to ask these questions. Remember, your goal is to reduce the number of people asking routine questions so you can concentrate of actually providing the service or selling the desired item.
  • Frequently asked questions about each product or service you provide. Again, for one week write down all of the questions and concerns people have about the products and services you offer.
  • Details about each product or service you provide. Give details such as available sizes, colors, styles, etc. Talk about the limitations of each product and the best way to use them. If you offer a service, do the same for each service.

Basically what I am saying is that your website should be an extension of you. It should be an extension of your staff. Look at it this way, your website should contain as much information to service potential customers so that you or staff will be of very little need.

The purpose of your website is NOT to sell your product or service directly. Do you understand what I am saying here? Remove all thoughts of selling your product or service directly from your website. Most commercial websites are trying to sell a product or service directly online to an international audience. This is not necessarily your goal if you only want to sell to people in your local area.

The main goal of your website should be to EDUCATE your website visitors about what you sell and how you sell it so well, that when they do call you or come into your shop or office – they are ready to buy!

Are you following me?

This is how you as a local retail or service business owner should be using the Internet to build your business. Simply use your website to educate potential customers so well about your business that you spend less time educating them in person or over the phone about these things. Now, you and your staff can concentrate on providing the actual service you’re in business to provide or selling the goods you offer.

Do you know the definition of insanity? It’s doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. This definition can be applied to most anything: life, relationships, and yes, business on the Internet. In a nut shell this means that if you haven’t made any real money on the Internet yet, then it’s time you changed the methods you are using.

Seems reasonable, right?

Then why after people read the 5 reasons people fail on the Internet below, they call me and say they are still doing some of these things because of this excuse or that excuse? Sounds like insanity to me. But you be different today. Here are the reasons most entrepreneurs and businesses don’t make money on the net.

Reason #1:
They don’t know who their target market is!

Some people put up a website, join a bunch of affiliate programs, submit their website to the top 800 search engines, and then just sit there.Their website has all sorts of products and services. They are selling flowers, kitchen appliances, pet supplies, books, travel services, etc. What does all these products have in common? NOTHING!

When you get on the Internet to sell, you must target your market. Either you are selling to pet lovers or gardeners. You can’t do both from the same website. Visitors to your site want to spend money. But they will only spend money at a website that seems focused on a particular subject. Don’t be an online flea market.

Reason #2:
Their website has very little to no traffic!

It amazes me how people think that people on the Internet will just find their website on their own without them taking some serious action. Tell me if the following situation makes sense to you: You open a store in your local area selling picture frames. You have a street address. How many customers do you think will find you if you don’t advertise your new business? No one.

Without traffic your business is dead. Traffic is like oxygen, without it you die. Traffic brings you potential customers. Some potential customers turn into money spending customers. That is the sequence for making money in any business. The Internet is no different. If you don’t do everything possible to attract visitors to your website to purchase your goods, you won’t have any sales.

I know of a website owner who gets only 5 or 6 visitors a day. No kidding. And he’s shocked that  his business isn’t making him any money. If a traditional business gets only 5 or 6 people coming through its door a day, gets what that business does? It goes out of business! You must make traffic generation a priority.

Reason #3:
They treat their web business like a toy!

Some people treat there Internet business like a side hobby: sometimes they work it, most of the time they don’t. If nothing good is playing on TV, they work their business. If a hot movie is showing, they don’t. Is this you?

A very easy way to tell that someone doesn’t take their web business seriously is by looking at the tools they use to operate their web business. Tools like:

  • free websites
  • free email accounts
  • free autoresponders
  • not responding to their email for a week
  • not listing their phone number on their website

These are clear indications that the business owner is just playing around.

Reason #4:
Their website isn’t designed to sell.

The purpose of a website is to first educate and then to sell. Most websites do neither. If your website has very little useful content, don’t expect people to stay and explore your site. Remember, people are on the Internet to find solutions to their problems. They use search engines, directories, and read ezines to find websites that can solve their problems.

If your website doesn’t solve a problem, a specific problem, your website won’t make much money. Your contact information, address and phone number should be clearly visible. It should be easy to navigate your site. Your site should be easy to read and fast to download. It should not be graphics intensive, it should be content intensive. And, then, after you’ve educated your visitor, you should move them to your sales letter and sell your product.

Reason #5:
They sell products that can be easily purchased in a local store!

Products that sell the best on the Internet are products you can’t easily run down to your local mall and purchase. If you are selling flowers, pens, pet supplies, etc – it will be hard to make a profit online because you aren’t really selling a product that solves a problem.

However, if you sell a type of flower or a line of pet supplies that can’t be easily found in a store, now you have a good start. The Internet is the best place to sell unconventional items. When you brainstorm a product to sell online, think to yourself, can this item be easily purchased in the outside world? If so, you may want to consider another product.

These are just 5 of the biggest problems I see that cause failure on the Internet. They can all be solved. Are you doing any of the above in your current web business? If so, please stop.  Or hire a good digital marketing agency to help you get it right.

There are traffic-generation methods I feel are a complete waste of your time. Many beginners to the ecommerce world use these techniques. That’s only because they don’t know any better. They’ve never read this report. But luckily you are reading it. Heed what I say here because the following traffic generation methods bring very little to no valuable traffic.

Posting in Newsgroups

When the Internet was young, newsgroup posting was the way to go if you wanted to build traffic to your site. Back at that time, back in 1993 – 1994, this was considered a top-notch method to build traffic. There weren’t too many other ways to build traffic back them.

But now things have changed. Newsgroups are really the last place you want to go to build traffic to your site. I’m mainly talking about the “unmoderated” newsgroups were ads are acceptable. These newsgroups are filled with people who have some “get-rich-quick” idea to peddle or some product of little to no value to sell. No one goes to these newsgroups to read the ads you play there. People simple flock to these places to place ads of their own. And when everyone is placing their own ads, you can be certain they ain’t reading your ads.

Want proof?

Just go to one of these unmoderated newsgroups. Look at the posting. Do you see anyone replying to any posts? Probably, you see very few people replying to anything. People don’t use the newsgroups to get information. They only use them to place their ads. No one their wants to read your ad. Plus, the newsgroups have a heavy concentration of old-time netters. These people are very cost conscious. They spend money on almost nothing unless they feel they can get a whole lot for a nickel. It doesn’t make any sense for you to advertise to people who don’t want to spend money.

One more thing about newsgroups…

Spammers use the newsgroups to collect email addresses. When you post to newsgroups using your email address, you run the risk of a spammer grabbing it and selling it to other spammers.

Posting to Free Classified Ad Sites

This is another waste of time. People don’t go to free classified ad sites to read ads. They go there to post ads. So your ad most likely won’t get read. However, posting to a free classified ad site is better than posting to the newsgroups.

Free classified sites are free because the owners of the site want to send you a confirmation email about your posting. And, of course, the confirmation always has a sales pitch inside for their products and services. Owning a free classified ad site is just a way to collect email addresses so you can sell your goods.

However, there are a few good classified ad sites. These normally cost you money if you want to place an ad. The owners of these sites use this money to market their classified ad site to drive traffic to the site so people can read the ads at the site. Posting to free classified ad locations is only worth while if you are able to place your ad in THOUSANDS of sites each week.

Do you have the time to post to THOUSANDS of free sites each week?

Renting a Opt-In List or Email Addresses

Some beginners to ecommerce think the way to build traffic to their sites and sell their products is to rent an opt-in list or to purchase email addresses on CD-ROM. The people who sell these methods tell you that the email addresses they have want you to sell them something. They tell you that the email addresses they sell were given to them voluntarily by the owners.

ALL LIES!

Most of those emails were stripped away from newsgroups and free classified ad sites using email stripping software. The people who have their email addresses stolen are unaware that their email address is being sold for a profit. And, then you come along and send them some invitation or sales message to visit your site.

Guess what happens next?

You get reported to your ISP for spamming and then your ISP takes away your Internet access privileges.

Not good business.

You should never purchase email addresses on CD ROM. You just never know how those addresses were collected. You should never purchase opt-in lists either for the same reason. The only time you should use an opt-in list is when the list owner will be sending out the advertisement to the list themselves. You shouldn’t be doing the mailing. If an ezine publisher has a list that they have built, just give them your ad and let them do the mailing. The only time you should be doing your own mailing is when YOU have built the list yourself.

I bet you think building a business on the Internet using free web hosting is smart? I mean, after all, you save yourself $500-$1,000. You probably don’t understand why someone in their right mind would spend money for something they can easily get free. What I’m about to tell you isn’t actively publicized.

Very often there is a huge price to pay when you totally rely on free stuff you find on the web. “FREE”, really isn’t so free. Especially when you use free web hosting to run your Internet business. There are several problems with free and budget website hosting that you probably aren’t aware of.

1) Your Potential Customers Won’t Take You Seriously!

Believe it or not, people on the Internet are wise to what a REAL website looks like, and what a FREE website looks like. Most people know that real websites look like this: http://www.business-name.com.

However, when they see that your website looks like:

http://www.free-web-host.com/?I-have-no-money/
some-numbers-here/Joe
 –

…they instantly know that you are not serious about what you sell. If you can’t afford $500-$1,000 a year to get a REAL domain, why would your potential customers believe in the quality of your product? They won’t!

If you want your potential customers to take you seriously, you need to invest your money in a REAL website. Get a real domain that says you’re serious about your business and not just playing games.

2) It’s Hard To Build Large Amounts Of Traffic To Your Site!

Did you know that the secret to making money on the Internet is getting large amounts of traffic to your website? You may be asking yourself, what’s a large amount of traffic. Well, it’s about 500 unique visitors a day. Depending on what you sell, the price, the profile of your market, etc – this number may be too small. I’m just giving you a number to work with.

The more people that come to your site, the more chances you get to make a sale. But if you use free web hosting, it’s hard to get ranked high (within the first 2-pages) on the major search engines. This is because some of the major search engines use the analysis of a sites “meta” tag description to rank the sites relevancy for certain keywords. If you have a free website, often times you can’t add “meta” tags to your site. Also, the major Internet directories (Yahoo and Looksmart for example) will NEVER list your site in their directories because they only consider businesses with a real domain for inclusion in their directories.

In short, it’s almost impossible to do good SEO on a free website platform.

3) You Can Lose The Traffic You Worked So Hard To Get!

Let’s say through some very hard work, you managed to build your website traffic to 500 unique visitors a day. Then, your free web hosting company goes out of business (Yes, this can happen!). Every one knows your website as:

http://www.free-web-host.com/?I-have-no-money/
some-numbers-here/Joe

Since you’ve moved your site to ANOTHER free web hosting service with an address like:

http://www.my-NEW-free-web-host.com/
?AGAIN-I-have-no-money/some-NEW-numbers-here/Joe
 –

…people can’t find you because they only know your other website address. All the time and money you’ve spend to build your traffic is lost.

If you had a REAL domain like: http://www.business-name.com – you could easily use that same domain name with another domain hosting company. When you have a real domain name you can take that name with you. You won’t lose any traffic or sales. A matter of fact, your visitors won’t even know you’ve changed hosts unless you tell them.

4) You Could Lose The Contents Of Your Website!

Did you know that some free web hosting company’s have you sign an agreement that says THEY own your website content? So if they decide later on to start charging you, you can either pay their fee or lose the content of the website you worked so hard to create.

5) Your Website Traffic Can Be Easily Stolen!

Some free web hosting company’s require you to place THEIR banner (or someone else’s banner) on YOUR website. Listen to this scenario: “you work your butt off to build traffic to your site. When your visitors get to your site, they are presented with an opportunity to go elsewhere. So you lose the visitor BEFORE they even had a chance to view and maybe purchase from your site.” Wouldn’t this make you mad?

6) Your Site May Not Always Be Operational!

Some free web hosting services don’t spend big bucks on equipment and staff to make sure your site is ALWAYS operational. This is also true of some budget domain hosting services where they charge you like $99 a year. Since you aren’t paying any money for them to host your site, they may not spend any money to make sure your site is always operational. This is something you wouldn’t even realize.

If you plan on doing SERIOUS business on the Internet, even if your goal is to make just $50,000 a year, you must get a real domain. Never use free website hosting. People will not take you seriously. Free web hosting is fine for personal use. Maybe you have some family pictures you want to upload to the site so family members all over the globe can easily view them. Or you can use a free web site to communicate family news. That’s what free website hosting is best for. Not for business! If your business depends upon your website, then you need to invest in good web hosting.

Your website should never be used as a mere posting board about your business. Many businesses make the mistake of developing websites that are nothing more than electronic versions of their paper brochures. In effect, they are boring their potential customers to death. And when people get bored, people leave to find another website!

With millions of business owners and entrepreneurs desiring to build a web business over the next few years, what your website must do to make you money, has become a very popular topic. Fortunately, by following a few simple rules, you can create such a website for yourself and your business.

RULE #1:
Know who your target market is and what their problems are!

Too many people are rushing onto the web without knowing who their target market is. And, if you don’t know who your market is, then how can you create and find products or services to solve that market’s problems? You can’t. This sabotages you from the beginning.

Your website should serve one of two purposes:

  • either to sell your product(s) directly…
  • or to capture prospects’ follow-up information so you can sell to them later on..

You must decide if it is best to sell your item directly from your website or to capture follow-up data to sell to your prospects over time. The general rule of thumb is that if what you are selling costs less than $300, you should put full details of  the item on your website, including order information.

Most people feel comfortable buying a product the first time they see it if the item is under $100. So, $300 may be pushing it. This is why it’s important to know your market. If you are selling to the financial market, they may be willing to pay $300 the first time they visit your site. However, if you are selling to housewives (or house-husbands), they most like are very costs conscious, and will not.

However, if the item costs more than $300, you will most likely have to further communicate with the prospect before they feel comfortable enough to buy from you. Thus, the objective of your site is not making an immediately sale but capturing prospect e-mail and other follow-up details.

Rule #2:
Decide what product you will sell from your site!

Your website should never be a virtual flea market. Selling too many items, especially un-related items. This is foolish. You should decide on one, maybe two items to sell at your site. Concentrate all of your efforts on designing your website to sell just that item or two. The less choices your visitor has…the more likely they are to purchase from your site.

Don’t confuse your website visitors with too many choices. Most people are confused by nature. They don’t really know what’s good for them anyway. And they are scared to death of making the wrong decision. You shouldn’t make their decision process tougher by giving them too much to choose from. Other wise they not choose anything.

Rule #3:
Arrange Your Main Page So It Shows Benefits

When someone visits a website, they are looking for fast indicators that the site they are looking at can solve their problems. One of the best ways to do this is to offer a free newsletter. This newsletter should solve a specific problem. This is why knowing your target market is so important.

Next, your website should offer tons of valuable advice. This could be in the form of articles written by you, or by other authors. Don’t just post any type of articles at your site. Think about the most pressing problems your target market has and create or look for articles that solve the problem. These articles could be from 1 to 2 pages long.

You could also start a discussion forum at your site. A discussion forum fosters a community of problem solvers. People love to flock to a place where people give free advice. This is a great way to keep people coming back to your website. The more they visit your site, the more likely they are to purchase from it.

Rule #4:
Every word at your website should deliver a benefit!

If you review lots of websites like I do, you know that the vast majority of them are painfully dull. The first rule of marketing is that you can never bore people into acting. Thus, it’s necessary to learn some key rules of successful copywriting or you’ll never be able to create a website that works.

  • Keep it short. People want to quickly see what’s in it for them. Your sentences and paragraphs should not be long. Keep paragraphs under 4 sentences. Keep sentences under 20 words if you can. Use bullets and numbered sentences to highlight benefits.
  • Make it active, keep it moving. Every word, every sentence, every paragraph must be designed to get the prospect to ACT! People like action. Keep things alive on your site by using words like: “click here”, “subscribe now”, “join today”. This gets your visitor involved with your site.
  • Always stress benefits. What the readers to a website want is to have better lives. They want their problems solved. What all humans at all times are looking for is being better off. 

The website that works, the website that makes money, is the one that makes an offer, stresses benefits, and offers tons of good advice just before you lead them to your sales page. Now that’s a website that works! And that’s the website you must strive, at all times, to create and maintain!

The domain hosting business is funny. Most domain hosting company’s take pride in giving you massive amounts of web space. Newcomers to the Internet get suckered into that hype all the time. Some think that the more mega-bytes of space they have, the better.

Well, let me tell you, space doesn’t make the sale. The content of the site makes the sale. Also, did you know that 10 MB of website space is about 750 pages? I don’t know about you but your business would have to be awfully high to fill up 750 pages. So you don’t need a web host that offers 100 MB of space for $99 a year.

Here’s what you do need:

  • 20 megabytes of space: This gives you about 1,500 pages. More than enough for expansion as your business grows
  • 10 Email Accounts: These accounts will all have your url as the extension to show people that your online business is very professional (ex: if your website is www.business-name.com, then one of your email accounts could be, [email protected], [email protected], etc.)
  • Unlimited webpage editing: Some web hosts will charge you additional fees if you edit your website over a certain data transfer amount. Make sure the host you sign with either has a very high data transfer limit (like 1 Gig of data per month) or no limit at all.
  • Unlimited hits/traffic (data transfer): Did you know that some web hosts will hit you with additional monthly fees if your website gets too much traffic? Yes, you’ll just send you a bill one day in the mail saying that they charged your credit card an additional amount because your website received more traffic to it then was allowed. Now, I thought a website was suppose to help your online business. Not penalize you for doing well.

That’s why I say to watch out for those budget web hosting company’s. They may give you a very low rate (like $99 or $149 per year), but some will hit you on the head with hidden charges to make up the difference. OUCH!

  • Unlimited phone and email technical support: Look for a host that will answer your email questions in 24 hours flat. They should also have a real phone number so you can call and speak to a human person to solve any technical problems you are having with your site.
  • Access to marketing resource information: Your web host should not just take your monthly or yearly fee and say, “Good Luck!” They should also provide access to marketing reports and information to help you be a better online marketer.
  • Traffic generation assistance: I’ve saved the best for last. Without traffic, your web business is dead in the water. Traffic is like oxygen, without it you die. So make sure the web host you sign with helps you generate traffic to your website. Of course most web hosting company’s do very little to help their clients generate traffic. Most are just happy to get your monthly or yearly fee. Very shortly, I’ll tell you about a web hosting company that does help you get traffic. But if website traffic is important to you–and it should be–find a trustworthy SEO company.

As far as traffic generation is concerned, watch out for domain hosting company’s who promise to put a link on their “Special and Private Links” page back to your site to help you generate traffic. What good is that link a month later when they sign up 100 or so more clients and now your link is way at the bottom. How many people do you think will actually read that far down the page to find your link and visit your site. Not many…not many!

The biggest challenge you face as you race to put your existing business online or start a business online is where to start first. Most of the business people and entrepreneurs I speak with are simply overwhelmed with the amount of information available on the techniques and strategies required to start, promote and continually profit from a business online.

Although there are many complete Internet marketing courses being sold online (many are very good by the way), these courses are often more beneficial to the business person or entrepreneur who has already started their online business. These people already have a big picture of what they want to sell online and how they want to go about doing it. They just need to fine tune their marketing skills and implement a few advanced marketing techniques to be profitable.

But what if you’re a business person who hasn’t started yet? What if you have no idea as to where to begin or what direction you should be going?

This is the problem you may be experiencing right now. You don’t have a website, you don’t have a product, and you haven’t yet identified a target marketing with a specific problem that you would like to solve. In short, you don’t know where to start first. This report will very quickly and easily show you where to begin. And if you already have an existing business in the traditional world with an existing customer base, this report will help you put your offline business online.

How long will it take? You can be up an running in as little as one month.

How long will it take for you to be profitable? Well, that’s a tougher question to answer.

You could be profitable in less than 90 days if you follow ALL of the instructions I give you in this report. Or you may never be profitable if you do things the wrong way. And profitable simply means that you are making more money than you are spending. That could be as little as $100 or as much as $10,000 a month. Your success will depend on how quickly you implement and correctly apply the techniques you will learn today.

Before you get too excited about making money on the Internet with your existing offline business or starting a brand new business, don’t think for a second this one free report is the answer to being successful on the Internet. This report is only a beginners guide to help you start your online career. It frustrates me to hear people tell me they’ve spent money on one or two books, read a few free reports they found on the Internet and aren’t profitable online yet.

ONE OR TWO BOOKS, AND A FEW FREE REPORTS WILL NOT MAKE YOU A CYBER-SUCCESS!
