As a newbie to internet marketing or your home based business, you’re inbox is probably bombarded with marketing emails promoting the latest gurus ‘system’. There are a number of them out there from Daegan Smith’s Maximum Leverage System, Jonathan Budd’s Seven Figure Networker System, to Brian Finale’s My Lead System Pro. What do these Marketing Systems offer, are they worth the money, and are they absolutely necessary to making money in my home based business venture?
First of all, I’ve heard great things about each one of these systems and these leaders themselves. As leaders in this industry, the opportunity to learn from these men isn’t something to snuff your nose at. All three of these systems offer chances to be a part of their Mastermind Team or Inner Circle Membership where they offer weekly (or even daily!) webinars offering the latest and greatest marketing techniques. This is actually one of the best selling points of these systems f95zone . However, you will definitely pay for this portion of the system (anywhere from $50 in Jonathan Budd’s system to $200 with Daegan Smith’s system… and that’s per month!) If you’re just starting out and trying to keep your business expenses down, I believe you are best suited to put your money into other things for now.
Next, these systems offer the opportunity to create custom landing/capture pages where the sales copy is already written and you can simply plug in your custom videos godaddy email . This is another cool feature since the whole point of being online is to generate leads and it’s a little tricky to do so without capture pages. However, with everyone using these systems (and thus their landing pages) a lot of the times these pages fall under the infamous “Google Slap” because these pages appear so many times to be approved to be in their search engines. So, what now? You’ve paid to use these systems and now you can’t even really use them… The only solution is to create your own webpages through a hosting company like GoDaddy.com. You’d have to invest in a few books to learn how to write some simple copy that will convert (or get them from your library), but these are pages you can use on both Google and Facebook Ads (one of the books I recommend is Dan Kennedy’s Sales Letter books).
The downside to these systems is these systems require you to use (and thus purchase) your own auto responder. However, this can be good because it means you own the database of the leads you generate but it adds to your monthly cost of things. One thing to keep in mind is if the system does come with a built in auto responder, chances are your deliverability rate won’t be that high and your email marketing will have been in vain.
If you already have one website, it is possible that you have been considering that your business or interests would benefit from having more than one. If you are a newcomer to this interesting aspect of the Internet, you will be probably confused not only by the quite technical terminology used but also by the many different possibilities, opinions and offers that you can find online. In this article, we will see how easy instead is to setup and manage more than one website, either for business purposes, such reselling, or for personal interest.
Getting domain names is relatively straightforward, just pick the domain registrar you want to buy from and purchase the names you prefer. Of course like with every other investment in life, one must be careful to deal with serious businesses. Prices may vary a little, but on average a.com domain name will cost you around $10/year. Often registrars try to differentiate themselves offering a number of additional services, such as hosting, special offers, support forums and so on. They may also offer special deals, like buy a.com and get a.info free, or free ID Protection (your details will not show up on WhoIs). What you want to especially verify is that the chosen registrar is reputable, has been in business long enough, and from a technical standpoint, make sure they offer an easy to understand control panel (to manage your domains). GoDaddy for example (the largest accredited registrar in the world), allows you to open a free account, so you can see yourself how easy (or not) is for you to navigate through their pages.
Most registrars also offer hosting, but one thing that I want to make clear, is that you do not need to host your websites with the same provider from which you bought the domains. You can buy your domains from GoDaddy (to make an example), and host with someone else. It doesn’t really matter and it won’t cost you more to do so. If this is the case, you will be managing all your domains with your hosting company, and renew and pay the domain names with the registrar. This is done once a year (or two etc.) and takes only a few minutes (or they can even be set to be renewed automatically). Keeping things separate has the benefit that you can shop around for the best deals both for registering and hosting.
If getting a domain name is quite straightforward, not so for the hosting. At this point, in fact, you must figure out what are you getting multiple domain names for. This is because basically, you can have either a shared or a so called reseller hosting account. They are quite similar and for this reason many hosts offer both. Despite the difference in the name though, make no mistake, in both cases you share your resources amongst your websites. The main difference is that with a reseller account you can re-sell hosting, so this solution is good if you want to start this as a business (which can be quite profitable, but of course it is a very competitive niche since it is so easy and inexpensive to get started). From a technical point of view, in a shared account, all your websites will be accessed through a single ftp access, and managed from a single control panel. This is obviously not good if you want to resell hosting to different individuals, but also if you like to keep things separate, or if you plan to sell one or more of your hosted websites in the future. In this case choose a reseller account. All your websites will still share the same IP, the same resources (disk space, bandwidth etc.), but they will each have separate ftp accesses, and each of them will have an unique control panel (usually a CPanel. I assume throughout the article that we are discussing UNIX hosting). The reseller account (the domain that you will be using to open your reseller account) will also have, besides a CPanel, its own control panel (WHM, Web Host Manager), from which you can configure and control all your domains resources, permissions and so on.
