Well, the 113Directory that I contribute to has reached over 7800 listings and climbing. I recently took on a huge project for a major SEO firm over in the UK and am pleased to say and report that the client was very please with speed and diligence that I paid in getting his sites listed properly. This was in no way a small feat. I alone submitted into the proper categories over 250 sites as Featured listings. Needless to say the client was impressed and the whole transaction and submissions report was done perfectly to their liking. And yes, the funds were deposited into my Paypal account and we both walked away plenty pleased.
So, if you are reading this post and no of any SEO firms looking to get into a well rounded and respected directory, go ahead and give em the link of the 113Directory, Free and Non-Reciprocal listings are also accepted.
An E-book that includes your marketing message and a link to your website is a proven technique in viral marketing. This method uses the multiplication effect to “explode” the distribution of your message by willing participants.
This is the basic principle that was used by Hotmail to get established. When the two founders set up their free email system, all the messages that were sent by subscribers had a text message at the bottom which identified Hotmail as the origin. People who sent emails to their friends advertised the free email site.
Using viral E-books as a marketing method is cheap. It doesn’t take long to set up and it’s even quicker if you use rebrandable E-books that have been written by others. Just use your favorite search engine and do a web search. You will find many rebrandable E-books that are available on whatever subject you are interested in and that apply to your e-business. One method of distributing the E-book is to offer it to visitors in exchange for subscribing to your newsletter. If they pass it on to their friends and family it will promote your business for you.
E-books are capable of reaching a large audience and are limited only by the enthusiasm of the participants.
E-books are fairly easy to create. It’s possible to produce your own E-books by combining articles that you have written or have gotten from public domain sources, such as directories.
It is essential that you keep your list clean and manageable. Arrange it by using the many tools and technologies available for your opt-in list. Do not worry; your investment in this marketing strategy is well worth it with all the coverage you will get which will likely be converted into sales then to profit.
Keep yourself and your business out of trouble and potential run-ins with the law and the internet service providers. Keep your operation legit and clean. Your reputation as a legitimate businessman and a legitimate site depends on your being a straight and true marketing strategist. As a tip, here are three things to avoid when emailing your list.
1) Take notice of your unsuccessful sends. These are the e-mails that bounce. Bounced emails, also known as undeliverable messages, are those messages that, for whatever reason, were not successfully received by the intended recipient.
There are bounces that happen or occur because the server was busy at that time but can still be delivered in another time. There are also bounces because the inbox of the recipient is full at that time. There are those bounce messages that are simply undeliverable ever. The reason for this is that it may be an invalid email address, a misspelled email address, or an email address that was abandoned and erased already. And keep in mind the news articles and commercials about “reputable” services like “freecreditreport”‘s and such since most of these services can sometimes be used for phishing. The lifelock tool has been the best in my own words of those services that keeps everything in perspective while providing substantial protection for your clients and listees.
An opt-in list allows you to provide newsletters to your subscribers with their consent. When people sign up, they know that they will be receiving updates and news from your site and the industry your represent via an e-mail. But that doesn’t mean that all of those who subscribe read them at all. Many lists have been built due to an attachment with free software or for a promotional discount and such. Some are not really interested in receiving e-mails from companies and just treat them as waste of cyberspace and delete or trash them without so mush as opening the e-mail and scanning them.
You can change all that. While forwarding an email message is relatively after producing your newsletter. Getting people to open them is not as easy. You don’t want to waste all the time and effort used in making the newsletters, you want people to read them and have their interests piqued. Interested enough to go to your website and look around and most especially purchased and acquire your products or services.
One of the numerous ways you can tempt or persuade your subscriber is by providing a well thought out and well written subject. The subject of an email is what is often referred to when a person or a recipient of an email decides whether he or she wants to open or read an e-mail. The subject could easily be regarded as one of the most important aspect of your promotional e-mail.

Take a look at the above video and make your own conclusins to a new search engine just released. The basic premise from what I can see is you get paid in points for Visa merch cards that can be used to pay off your search engine usage. The scheme is sort of like the old bomb that was AGLOCO but so far from the viral garbage that it alone generated. Maybe this one will work, maybe not. But as long as you are just siting there why not just use my referral link and show that I didn’t waste my time by spreading the news.

Your website is where your business resides — it’s like the headquarter of an offline company. Hence, it is important to practice good design principles to make sure your site reaches out to the maximum number of visitors and sells to as many people as possible.
Make sure you have clear directions on the navigation of your website. The navigation menu should be uncluttered and concise so that visitors know how to navigate around your website without confusion.
Reduce the number of images on your website. They make your site load very slowly and can drag down your web hosting bandwidth allotment for the month. If you think any image is essential on your site, make sure you optimize them using image editing programs so that they have a minimum file size.
