Web 2.0 ? What Is It And Different Methods To Tap Its Full Potential

The manner in which world wide web has grown in the last half decade, it has made it essential for all internet businesses to adapt and organise themselves all over again in order to continue offering value to their customers and earn decent income on internet. This brings to mind the term web 2.0. You have to be existing in pre-medieval time if the hullabaloo enveloping web 2.0 hasn’t reached you till now! I get perplexed tremendously when I meet entrepreneurs who have their business organisations on the world wide web and are yet to discover the power of web 2.0.

The best strategy to utilize the possibilities of web 2.0 is to imitate the smart entrepreneurs in your domain who’re already utilizing its potential to the best. Furthermore, you will attract tremendous profits if you master the strategy of linking many web 2.0 sites in a methodical manner. To tell the truth, this is precisely what the notable internet gurus do in order to get large-scale traffic to their web sites.

To keep points in perspective, let us throw some light on the term web 2.0. Some time ago Tim OReilly (a famous person on world wide web) happened to be talking of the way world wide web has evolved recently. He coined the term web 2.0 to refer to the quickly changing internet, assuming the earlier ways of managing tasks on the web to be web 1.0. From the internet business’ view, web 2.0 users are far more responsive to web products/services in comparison to the earlier ways of marketing on the web. Web 2.0 basically constitutes of a set of tools that enable people to share information, build social/business associations and execute project collaborations online. Good examples of web 2.0 sites are the modern-day social-networking websites, wikis, virtual worlds, blogs and new age internet communities/forums such as myspace, second life, facebook, linkedin, orkut, wikipedia etc. The primary differences between the old and novel ways of doing things on the internet lie in the following points:

Visitors are now able to interact in a more personalised way and freely on internet sites if compared to old times. Web 2.0 websites have the fabulous ability to gather user feedbacks right away, thus making it an amazing tool for business organisations to take preventive and critical measures to enhance the rate of conversion.

The community feeling is much more different and worth the time in a web 2.0 platform.

Web businesses no more have to be worried about getting well-ranked on search engines as they are able to introduce their sites to the prospects in a much more effective way.

To end, web 2.0 is the new age internet. Not adapting to it and not tapping into its potential can be termed as suicidal for any online commercial enterprise serious about its future.

Outsourcing is a popular term that you hear almost everywhere today. So if you have a skill, or are willing to learn one, people will pay you to do things for them that they do not have time to do. Almost anyone can work from home providing a service on the Internet.

Perhaps you can consider a specific example where you can work from home as a blog.

Did you know that there is a new blog started every second somewhere in the world? This may seem like an incredible number but it makes sense in reality.

Blogs are replacing websites as the chosen way for people to start online. They can be used to make money or they can be used for social reasons as well.

One thing does remain constant regardless of how the owner chooses to use them. Blogs need content to be effective and the owners have a difficult time keeping up with them.

For example, many people who also have full-time jobs will find it difficult to consistently write blog articles while they try to make money online with a blog. This is a very quick way for you to start a home business and make money targeting a market where there is a never ending supply of prospects.

It is not rocket science to write blog articles. When you write blog articles you will need to practice good search engine optimization techniques. You also need to make it entertaining and useful to the reader.

Many blog writers choose to write controversial content and this brings back readers to their blog. You will quickly be in demand and can command a good price for the articles that you write if you can write this type of content.

Finding customers for your blog writing business is not hard to do either. One way to meet people and offer your services in a passive way is social networking. You can do this in discussion forums where you create a signature file that links back to a page describing the writing you offer.

You can also do this through social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, My Space, and many more. So they can order from you initially people will need to be able to find you.

You will find repeat business keeps you busy and word-of-mouth bring in new customers as well, after you get through that startup phase. This cam add up to be a quick way to work from home as a blog writer on the Internet.

Four Years Of Barack Obama. How Will This Affect Internet Marketers?




	
	
	
	


When it comes to Barack Obama's new economic plan, there are positive and negative aspects. Some parts the plan should help us out as internet marketers. There are other parts that might hurt us. First, let's start with the best news...we internet marketers are a resourceful bunch and we'll probably make sure that everything goes well for our future no matter what.

That reminds me...before I go on, I will stick my opinion where it may or may not belong. Both candidates said "The American people are innocent victims of this financial disaster"...um, are you kidding me? I can't think of a more dangerous thing to say. No one had guns to their heads when they signed those home loans! When American citizens completely stop taking responsibility for their own actions, as the candidates encouraged, then America loses its advantage as the superpower in the world. I know they were trying to win votes, but that's just irresponsible.



My audienceinternet marketers and entrepreneurswill take care of themselves. They don't WANT the government to take care of them. That's how it should be and it's that very attitude that makes them successful and independent to begin with. If everyone thought like and entrepreneur, we, er, the country wouldn't be in this mess in the first place.

Okay, back to economic policy. The most exciting thing for internet marketers in Obama's new economic plan is the deployment of what politicians are calling Next-Generation Broadband. With this plan, Obama wants to bring broadband to every community in America. Overall, this should eventually bring the costs of broadband internet down across the nation. Also, the internet users that are still on dial-up will likely switch over to faster internet, meaning more chances for them to stay on your site instead of clicking away because your graphics are taking too long to load. Flash sites tend to do this a lot. Overall, with this plan implemented, more of America should spend even more time online, meaning more chances for you to make a sale.

There are a couple of other parts of Obama's economic plan that could turn into positives depending on your market niche. Part of the Obama plan is to issue an emergency energy rebate for $1,000. This rebate is said to be a type of "down payment" for Obama's long-term plan to give middle-class families at least $1,000 per year in tax savings. I'm sure you have heard this statistic: The savings rate in the United States is the lowest that it has been since the Great Depression. We've turned into a society of instant gratification. As much as we would love many Americans to put this extra $1,000 towards savings or debt, I believe most everyone will continue to spend this extra income on whatever they want. So that means there's an extra $1,000 each year that families could use to make even more online purchases.

Another positive in Obama's plan is the tax relief for small businesses and start-up companies. Obama wants to eliminate all capital gains taxes for these businesses in order to encourage the creation of more jobs. Since we work online, most of us don't owe capital gains taxes, but some of us might. A better positive for most all internet marketers is the proposed "Making Work Pay" tax credit which promises a $500 credit to almost every worker in America, which looks like it will include self-employed small business owners.

O.K., now for the negative aspects of Obama's plan: All through the debates you have heard Obama say that nobody making less than $250,000 per year will see a tax increase. He has even been quoted saying that these people should all see a tax cut. Well, what if you are making more than $250,000 per year? What tax increases will we see? Not all of us internet marketers are making $250,000 per year, but the ones that have turned the internet into a career rather than just a side job or hobby usually do pretty well. The sad thing is that we usually worked daunting schedules for years in order to enjoy a little of this "getting ahead". Now this group of superachievers is being targeted as a cash machine. Obama has said on camera "It's time for folks who make over $250K to pay their fair share". It makes me want to throw up.

Lucky for us, there hasn't been a politician in all of history that kept all of his or her promises.

Now, there is one last part of Obama's plan that I see as a potential negative for internet marketers. He wants to "simplify tax filings for middle class Americans." With this plan, Obama wants to make it so that millions of Americans can get their taxes done in less than five minute. They want to have the IRS use the info it gets from employers and the banks in order to give taxpayers the option of simple pre-filled tax forms that they can simply verify, sign, and return. As internet marketers, we know that there are a lot of tax benefits that come from being self-employed. Some of us work very hard in order to find as many tax deductions that we can. And others pay CPAs big money in order to find even bigger deductions.

If middle class Americans are given the option of getting pre-filled tax forms, I believe a huge majority of them will take it out of laziness, and a large number of these Americans will miss out on tons of legal tax breaks that they could receive for their families. Obama says that this plan can save Americans up to $2 billion in tax preparer fees. But I sit here and think to myself about how much some people save when they do have professionals file their taxes. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I think that this could be construed as a perfect plan for the government to issue a lot less refund checks to American citizens. And my main point of negative for this part of Obama's plan is less money for middle class American to spend at your site.

So, what will Obama's economic plan do overall for your business? Well, I believe there are chances to see spikes in sales, but the truth is that we see spikes in sales all the time, anyway. It seems to me that there are really less positives than negatives with Obama's plan. But I think that most of our sales will stay around the same during the Obama regime.

There will always be a small percentage of entrepreneurs in America, and the economy will be fine in the long run and we will figure out for ourselves how to thrive in the short run, in a good or a bad economic climate. Real business minds always rise above the zeitgeist.

Internet Marketing Jargon Busted ? Part 1

By Lama Kalla ? 2006

So you are starting out in Internet Marketing and are baffled by the jargon. You don?t know your SMTP from your FTP or where to put your POP3.

Internet Marketing has all sorts of jargon associated with it that confuses many new and veteran marketers. So how do you decipher this jargon and translate it into a language you can understand?

This article will help you to understand some of the common terms in Internet Marketing. And now some Jargon beginning with A …

Ad Tracking

Ad tracking is simply the process of tracking the response from your ads. Why? Because you need to know where your traffic is coming from and how it is converting. This is particularly important if you are paying for adverts ? you need to know which adverts are bringing you in business so you can keep them running whilst stopping the adverts that are not bringing in business.

How do you track your adverts? Well you could try and do it manually, but it is likely to be so time consuming that it will be a complete nightmare. The alternative is to use some ad tracking software. There are lots of scripts and utilities available for this. Using software will make it easier for you to determine which adverts are bringing you traffic and where to spend your advertising budget for maximum effect.

Affiliates

Affiliates is a big thing in Internet Marketing and it can be a bit difficult to understand it at first. There are really two terms here ? Affiliate Manager and Affiliate. An Affiliate Manager is someone who runs an Affiliate Program and recruits Affiliates ? you following me?

Everyone knows what McDonalds is ? a restaurant, no ethical or nutritional debates here ? it?s basically a big franchise. Mr McDonald sits in his ivory tower counting his money whilst Joe Bloggs runs a McDonalds restaurant.

Mr McDonald is the Affiliate Manager ? he owns the franchise and sells rights to other people (the Affiliates) to run a restaurant. In order for them to do this he gives them resources such as training, knowledge, equipment and so on.

As an affiliate, you can expect your affiliate manager to give you useful tools you can use to sell his product.

Autoresponder

An autoresponder does exactly what it says on the tin ? it responds automatically! To what you may ask ? to email! This is how those crafty Internet Marketers fill up your inbox whilst sitting on the beach drinking cocktails!

An autoresponder allows you to set up a series of messages to be delivered to a recipient over a time period determined by you. It is a fantastic tool and one you should definitely invest in ? remember, you are in Internet Marketing to make money and to have more time ? an autoresponder will save you lots of time.
