Paid Inclusion Is Better Than PPC Advertising
is the problem with Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising, especially
with smaller named search engines. Many websites request
or even pay there visitors to search a specific search
engine and click on a result. This just sends advertisers
fake leads and causes problems for the advertisers that
paid for the keyword listing. Many PPC search engines
offer webmasters up to 80% of the bid price. For example,
let's say I pay 'Example Search Engine' $1 for the keyword
Viagra, they then pay webmasters $.80 per visitor they
send that searches and clicks on a bided search term.
You can see why PPC can be a problem.

Lose Foreign Web Site Visitors With Brain-Dead Translation Services
some internet marketers it's become a cutting edge strategy
to offer multi lingual navigation and promo material on
their sites in the hope of expanding their client base.
While it is true that international users whose mother
tongue is anything but English are beginning to hit the
web in hefty numbers, catering to them in their own linguistic
format is an art in itself which doesn't lend itself to
the cheap and easy "no brainer" pseudo solutions currently
being hawked on the net. If you offer them one of those,
chances are you'll fend them off forever. Count it as
a well-meaning blunder as much as you will, fact is these
clients-to-be can be quite relentless if you convey the
impression that you couldn't care less about offering
first class services. Don't forget that very many people
actually love their mother tongue and don't enjoy seeing

Few Good Clients
of the business owners I speak with are looking for a
relatively small number of new clients. It isn't that
they're not ambitious, it's just the size of their businesses
doesn't warrant a larger objective. Typically they own
service-based businesses with an annual turnover counted
in the millions of dollars, not hundreds of millions.
Yourself From The Competition
getting harder and harder to differentiate yourself from
the competition these days. Especially when your competition
is global, offer additional value through their stellar
service, and look and sound similarly wonderful to your
offering. Not to mention that the new buzz words - ‘adding
value’ and ‘trusted advisor’ – are universal, making it
even harder to distinguish what you bring to the party
as being superior.
