I read a compelling article that said having some sort of video on your website made a huge difference in conversions. It made sense too. I mean look at the popularity of TV versus books. When I go to a site I like it if they have a video that in 30 seconds will show me what their service is rather than making me read it. The article did however point out that people are becoming sophisticated so they expect something professional looking.

I don't think that anyone mentioned harvesting. That's a technique that I have found very successful and costs nothing. In its simplest form, you go search a partiular company's wsebsites and look for the person's phone or email and then call them or email them your informtion. They are usually the best prospects because they are already in a home busines and don't have to be educated. For example search AVOn and you'll find thousands of sites many of which have phone numbers or emails you can then use to contanct each distributor. Since most home biz people struggle to be successful (as I used to but not any more ) they are often open to another biz.

I found article marketing and blogging to be most effective. Article marketing takes patience though as most articles do not appear right away and it takes the proper technique to get the listed in google. Blogging works well as you have repeat subscribers so if you keep your content fresh and post good solid information people will tend to return over and over and recommend you to others.

Default My methods...

I like to use articles, various forums, blogs, and a website. These methods have been successful for me. Perhaps there is more, but I am already making 3 times what I was at my old "office job".

I agree about the forum posting, blogs and even Hubpages. I also use Squidoo, but my Hubpage is doing much better in the search engines.

Articles are not easy for me. I am not the best writer and trying to come up with 4-5 articles a day that others would find interesting to read would be difficult. I have paid for a ghost writer to write articles for me, but that can be pricey. Even the most inexpensive ones can be costly, especially when your money is tight.

I am also still trying to learn of new ways to market my business online. I am learning from others like Frank Kern, Michael Rasmussen, and Tracy Biller, etc to learn of ways in which I can do better at building my business more quickly. I have already put into practice some of Tracy's trainings.

There are lots of information on the internet. You have to be willing to put in the time to learn the materials and put what you have learned into action. This is key. Learning new things is part of what an entrepreneur will be doing for the remainder of his or her career in the business building industry.

I am trying forum posts and article writing, I was told to submit my website to directories, which I found to be a long process. Has anyone done this?

I have just started using Squidoo and really like it! It is very, very easy to use and there are a ton of resources right on site from other lensmasters to help you get started. I really like how the income modules are so easy to add and you don't need to apply or set up accounts. The way they handle Google is different as well so even someone who cannot use Adsense on their sites can still earn on Squidoo. Apparently, the key is having lots of lenses to increase profitibility. It is rather easy to set them up, so I am hoping now that I have done one I can build more. Setting it up is just one step, as someone mentioned. Promotion is still key.

I'm only new to forums and am amazed how much you can learn from other's experiences. I've started writing articles and have only submitted to Ezine so far. I have also started up a Squidoo lens and found that interesting, although I'm a bit lost about what to do with what some of the modules are for. This is in my list of one of the next things to tackle. I know I've got a lot of work to do so I'm looking forward to it - I hope.
