Getting Targeted Traffic by Standing Out In The Crowd
Have you ever seen the trading floor in action on Wall Street? After the opening bell, things get chaotic. People who don't know what's going on might think of it as a riot situation.
It is funny to think that the world economy is so tied to something so seemingly disorganized and inefficient. But it works, somehow, and there are winners and losers each day just like online business owners who "win" and "lose" targeted traffic.
Picture a big group of guys all yelling and trying to get the attention of a couple people, who in turn, are trying to decipher what it is they are buying or selling. You cannot imagine that anyone has an edge over anyone else in this scenario.
Now picture one of the traders being 3 feet taller than everyone else. This guy gets heard and seen above all the others and has better, faster results from his obvious edge over everyone else.
Internet marketing is much like the Wall Street scenario. Everyone is yelling and screaming (with their links and ads) trying to get the attention of their market. It's chaotic yet it is organized in its own way.
The ones to understand how to be the guy who is 3 feet taller than the rest of the crowd are the winners at the end of the day. This might be from being number one in Yahoo for their keyword, or having a bigger list of subscribers than everyone else in their market niche.
Having the tools to operate in the winner's circle online is like pulling up a chair on the trading floor to see and be seen by more of your market.
In order to stand head and shoulders above the rest you must know your craft and be intimately tied to the changing currents in search engine marketing and other forms of online marketing.
This is your chair that will enable you to out-perform your competition who are below you fighting for scraps, trying to be seen and be heard above the din.
It is impossible these days to be a passive internet marketer. You cannot get the edge in online business without spending time on your craft and learning everyday how to get your site in front of your target market in new and innovative ways.
This is why every successful website owner on the web invests time and energy in continuing education. Most also attend seminars and network with other marketers to keep in-the-know and keep that chair on which they are standing on all four legs.
Getting to the top and staying there are two different things. Networking with other very smart, insightful trail blazers in your industry is how you stay on top.
That's why record numbers of online business owners are flocking to internet marketing seminars. Each year the seminar circuit grows and each year the seminars sell out with eager attendees looking to get, and keep, their edge. Thousands of people are looking for the chair to stand on that gets them seen by their target market.
Whether or not YOU think continuing education is important is irrelevant. You competition DOES and they are networking and learning specifically to blend your website into the crowd.
If you are serious about success online, no matter what your definition of success is for your business, you at least need to be aware of exactly HOW your competition is beating you in all areas of your marketing campaign.
Then you can take steps to get back in the game and compete on unequal footing with the masses who are all vying for the same attention from the same group of people in your target market.
Learn. Study. Know your craft. Internet marketing is no longer a spectator sport!

Idiotic Marketers Who Waste Time Should be Shot
Ok, that's a little harsh for a title but you know what?
Free Demographics or Updated Data?
During your search, you may encounter free demographic data. If data is data, then free is better, right? Not necessarily! Census data and commercial data do vary, at times so significantly that you may come to the wrong conclusion by using the latter. Let's take a look at each so that you can make the best decision when purchasing data or reports.
Lead Me On - Learn About Internet Marketing Leads
Every business is engaged in selling something, whether a product, service, information, or something else. And sales usually begin with sales leads. As an offline example, new insurance and car sales people are frequently asked to compile lists of their friends, families, acquaintances, and so on. This list is used then as a lead builder - something to get the ball rolling towards that first big sale. The online world is no different. Every for-profit web site needs a steady flow of internet marketing leads. A big part of any online marketer*s job is to generate the leads that will ultimately be responsible for another sale. In particular, in the highly competitive online marketing arena, someone selling products and services to other marketers will need a steady flow of fresh internet marketing leads to fuel their sales.
The Most Valuable Asset in Marketing - Do YOU have It?
The single most important attribute for a successful Network Marketer is often lacking, and yet it is the easiest to possess. Do YOU have it?
The Psychology of Online Selling
Why do we buy things? Well, some thing are out of necessity; we need food and water to survive. But which food do we buy? You see we do have a choice, which means we make decisions to buy one kind of food against another. That means our choice can be influenced - even for 'essentials'. So even though a principle reason for buying something is 'out of necessity' the chances are you didn't HAVE to but 'that one'. You made a choice, conscious or otherwise.
Wealth Is Around The Corner
There are so many simple and achievable ways to make money and yet to see most people just sit on the sidelines, it makes me sad. There are many people around the world already rich just by using a little imaginative thought to fuel their success.

Sneak Up On Your Competition
Dear Internet marketers: After going through a couple of months of frustration, I finally came up with ways to "sneak up" on my competition. I thought I would save you a lot of time, money and hard work and share, my experiance with you. First allow me to state a fact: Success = Commitment = Time + Money. Think about it. If money is an issue then time increases to have success increase. Or, if Time is an issue, then money needs to be spent to maintain a path to success. The ideal commitment would be to have an equal mix of both Time and Money. Here is another fact. Something for nothing = nothing. Please allow me explain. If you receive a no cost offer, and make no attempt to investigate, and learn more about how it will benefit you, you have no commitment and nothing for joining. In other words, read training tips. Set up your account so it is functioning properly. You just made a commitment. You have at least invested something valuable, your time. Now you have something. Now build on that. Make a commitment to promote your opportunity. Start your traffic flowing and begin recruiting to have an income. If money is the issue, invest more time with email campaigns that are designed well and SPAM free. Now the sneak attack! Drive traffic to your alfiliate URL or website. Use the following: Traffic Exchanges, Banner Exchanges, Link Exchanges, (if you have our own site and control its contents). Write articles, (make sure they have your opportunity link in them.) then, publish them to the internet. Now you really did something and your commitment increased considerably, without spending a dime, but by investing a considerable amount of time. Your investment just became substantially more valuable. Finally, establish a "Brand" name. Mine is Opportunities Now Internet Marketing Services. I registered my brand with the U. S. Patent Office and Arizona Secretary of State as a TRADE NAME. Cost? About $35.00 doing it myself. That was a whileback, I don't know if those fees have changed. I use my "Brand" on everything. Letters, Newsletters, email, site submissions. This is powerful advertising! Now my personal KEYWORD is: "opportunities now internet marketing services"
