Where Will Your Website Fall On the Internet Wheel of Fortune? Wednesday, Dec 10 2008 

logo_wheel_of_fortune2

Will you win or will you lose? You’ve probably seen the show Wheel of Fortune where people spin the wheel to determine what prizes they could they win. If you were to spin the Internet Fortune Wheel, where would your website land? Would it be on the winning side or are you closer to going bankrupt?

Most people think they just need to zip out any old site and it will work for them. That, my friend, is an attitude you can’t afford to have when it comes to working online. Your website is the calling card for your online business. Without it, you would have difficulty getting people to find you, let alone buy your products.

Publishing a site to the internet that isn’t appealing or doesn’t cut it will cause the Internet wheel to land on the losing side for you. If you want your business to be a success, don’t risk your hard earned money and time by having an ineffective site.

Why is it so Important to Have a Well Created Site?

You have an online business and your site will be your “store” from which all your sales and transactions will take place. If you walk into a local store, you will see a specifically designed layout within that store. Everything is placed where it is, for a reason.

Why? Brick and mortar store owners do this to increase interest in products or to gain more sales. Most stores are kept pretty clean and fairly easy to navigate to help you find what you need. The reason for that is to build a rapport with you, so you can develop trust with that store and their workers. How many people do you think would buy items from a dirty, grungy, poorly laid out store? Not too many.

People don’t trust business owners that don’t take care of their stores. When selling online, your “store” is your website, so you must take care of it and make sure it’s pleasing and easy to navigate for your online visitors. Those visitors are no different than the customers who walk into the local stores. Will your site measure up?

Your business site should come across to your visitor as a professional site with which to do business from. It should welcome them, help them around and make the sale as easy as possible for them. Since your website says a lot about your business, you will need to make sure it speaking positive things.

Plan to create the best possible professional website to sell your products from. Your customers are important to the success of your business.   No customers = No sales. A site that grabs a visitor and keeps them there while you layout what you have to offer and your sales pitch will land on the winning side of that Internet wheel.

The losing side is only for those who don’t care about their business and whether or not it succeeds. Since you’re not one of them, keep your site up to par and make your customers happy.

Has The Internet Changed Your World? Tuesday, Oct 7 2008 

It’s amazing how far we’ve come in the internet world. There are more and more people that are sharing their courting stories and now married that started on the internet, more new friends that are created via the internet and old friends that have reconnected as a result of it all.

I know personally that there are times when the power goes out at my house and I say, “Oh that’s ok, I’ll just check my email or chat with my online friends.” Umm..hello! The power is out! LOL That’s how ingrained in my head the use of the internet is in my household that I think it has a mind of its own without power!

The internet has also changed the way business is conducted. The world of advertising and promotion has turned a new leaf. Internet exposure is now one of the most lucrative ways to generate business. Internet marketing, guerilla marketing, social networking, attraction marketing and personal branding to name just a few are all major topics of conversation for the top producers in business advertising.

I also found it Incredible how CNN and other news media are using Twitter now. The social media phenomenon is getting into mainstream media and into everyone’s households. I always make sure to spend time w/my family because it can suck up all of your time if you are not careful. I definitely appreciated my Diva’s Within group when they declared a day to spend time with family.

So what about you? How has the internet changed your world? Did you meet your significant other via the net? Has your business expanded tremendously from the net? Let me know. Also take some time to view this video of my husband and family.

My Internet Business has been TAGGED! Thursday, Aug 21 2008 

It has been a crazy week as school started in our household. I officially have a high schooler, 9th grader (boy) and a 2nd grader (boy) and my pre-schooler (girl) wishes she was in K-garden! LOL My high schooler has already lost his books! Well they were STOLEN, per his story but the reason they were stolen is really bad decision making on his part. He asked us if he could to go to a friend’s house after school last Friday. We know this friend and their parents very well so it wasn’t a problem. I didn’t know that I should have told him to make sure he brings his backpack with him. Common sense, right? NO! He puts all of his books and backpack (SUPER DURABILITY LANDS END backpack, can ya tell I’m ticked? LOL) in an UNLOCKED P.E. LOCKER over the weekend!

Then my 2nd grader gets changed over to a new class after I was soo happy with his current teacher and the boys that are high achievers in his class. I was thrilled to learn that there were so many peers w/high intellect surrounding him in class only to find out that he was yanked to another class w/a teacher that will clash w/his personality. After my husband & I met w/the principal, we decided we will try this teacher as she highly recommends her after careful study and a long extensive talk w/his 1st grade teacher.  The move was due to overcrowding of 3rd graders and shifts needed to be made. Whew! I’m tired and it’s only week 2!

That’s just a quick update into my world. In other news, I was tagged by Mindless Mommy for a meme! It’s fun! Here are the rules…

  2. I am a social networking and forum addict
  3. I sleep w/my mouth open often
  4. I hate when someone turns the radio down or off while driving (especially my kids)
  5. I’m always reading 4-5 books at the same time
  6. Lipstick is like chapstick to me, I gotta have it or my lips feel chapped!

Now to tag six fellow bloggers for a meme.

The Family

The Family

 

 

 

 

     Last weekend was a wild one with my 6 year old son having to take a trip to the ER. He decided to put an eraser from the top of a pencil deep into his ear canal. I don’t know why he thought that would be fun but I guess that’s his stage in life right now. It was so deep that tweezers were not getting the job done. He was only in pain when anyone attempted to take it out but other than that he played around like there was no problem.

 

     I had a lot of things going on that day so I decided to take him to the ER late at night so he and my 3 year old daughter wouldn’t be running around the place. Did I mention that my husband was out of town? I think that’s a big detail that I left out. DRAMA!

 

     Before we left, I was on the computer and my 3 yr old came over to me and asked, “Mom, are you on the internet?” I turned around so shocked that she knew about the internet and said “Yes, sweetie I am. Do you get on the internet at school?” Then I put her in my lap and we talked about her pre-school activities with computers and I told her how the internet is so powerful and can make money while we are sitting there having our chat. I can only imagine where our internet business will be once she’s in high school. I envision our children taking over the family internet business.

 

     We already have our 14 year old videotaping our Youtube videos and uploading them for us. He has also helped us with the layouts of our Facebook and Myspace pages. Just as we pass on the legacy of the importance of God as number one in our lives, we must pass on the legacy of working hard and being financially free to give more in this world.

 

     So as we piled into the car heading to the ER, I braced myself for the upcoming screams that I knew would come from my son. It took 2 different forceps, 2 doctors to hold him down and enough screaming to wake up the entire city before the eraser came out. The first thing out of his mouth was “Mom, I learned my lesson. I will never do that again.” I just smiled at him and said, “There will be many lessons in life that you will learn. I just  hope the most important ones will stay with you forever.”
