[2002-10-31] That's Cold
If you hate cold-calling, you are not alone. In my dealings with other business owners in general, I have yet to find anyone who likes doing it. What is "cold-calling"? That's when you call someone who fits your market profile in order to introduce your products and services; someone who has never heard of you and who has not previously expressed any interest. It is sometimes called (I hate to use the term) "telemarketing", but that word has some pretty bad connotations thanks to unscrupulous business practices of some companies in that business. Personally, I think that it's much different when you call on your own behalf than when you hire a company to do it for you.

[2002-10-31] Define Yourself to Find Market Share
Sometimes, finding the right product or service to make your own is to find someone else's version of the same product or service and discovering ways to deliver it in a different way. Someone once told me that I could not make it in a business because there were already people in that particular business! The thought struck me as stupid. That is why we have other restaurants right. It was not enough to put a McDonalds in town, we also had to build a Burger King, Wendy's, Carl's Junior, Braums, Sonic and several more all of the local variety. All of them offer us hamburgers, so why do we need more than one of them?

[2002-10-30] Are You Marketing A Product That's Unrealistic For You?
Fact: There are far more people wishing to make substantial incomes from home over the Internet than there are actually doing it. That's an obvious statement to be sure, but why is that true? One factor often overlooked in my opinion is that many people make poor selections when choosing what they should sell. People, more often than not, decide what business to enter based on emotion, excitement, or other's success. Rarely, do people take the time to critically analyze what they will be getting into and whether or not it will be suitable for them.

[2002-10-04] Lifting the Lid on LookSmart
LookSmart is a global leader in Internet search and categorisation, operating a database of three million URLs organised into 300,000 categories. Its influence is far reaching, yet a succession of recent changes to its paid inclusion program has left the directory misunderstood and widely criticised. In order to understand these changes, LookSmart's future direction and the impact of these changes to website marketing, we must first understand a bit about the structure of LookSmart itself, and it's relationships with a string of strategic partners. LookSmart was the first major player to introduce paid inclusion, and as a result developed an early skew towards the corporate sector of the web. Measures were taken during 2001 to counteract this through the integration of Zeal's community based website directory , which doubled the number of non-commercial sites within the LookSmart database overnight - and continues to feed non-commercial content into the directory. This gave website marketers the opportunity to submit content to LookSmart for free. Becoming a Zealot involves a few online tests, but means that you can edit your own non-commercial listings that will be distributed throughout the LookSmart Network.
