Networking is when two or more different businesses stay
in contact on a regular basis to build and improve each
others business. There are many ways to network your
business online. Participate in online business related
discussion boards, e-mail discussion groups, newsgroups

people via e-mail, video conferencing and by using instant
messaging programs. Join online business associations and
clubs.

You’ll gain many benefits from networking online. You’ll
learn business information that you didn’t know before.
You can get advice on how to solve a current business
problem. It can lead to new business projects. Negotiate
joint ventures and cross promotion deals. Learn important
skills that you didn’t have before. Get constructive criticism
that can improve your business. Brainstorm with others
to come up with new business and marketing ideas.

Before you go out and communicate with other business
professionals there are a few things you should know ahead
of time. Know what kind of business information you are
seeking. Figure out which professionals could give you this
information. Know what questions you want to ask them.

Increase Traffic & Sales by Redecorating Your Web Site.

The use of the right colors on your web site can actually increase your sales.
When people see certain colors they can
change their emotions or they can symbolize things related
to the colors. Here are a list of colors with some emotions
and symbolizations they can cause:

Red – love, excitement, warmth

Pink – romantic, affection, sensuality

White – purity, peace, perfection

Blue – sky, water, travel, freedom, truth

Purple – royalty, dignity

Black – space, night, authority

Green – money, calm, envy, greed

Silver/Grey symbolizes security, reliability, intelligence, staid, modesty

Yellow – light, purity, understanding

Orange – autumn, youthfulness, fire

Brown – wood, comfort, strength

Its very important to know which emotions or symbolizations
will trigger your target audience to buy your product or
service. The colour used on your website could determine people’s first opinion of it. People see certain websites and say it looks really cool, that is because of the appeal which it projects to the reader or viewer.
If your selling a money-making product you should
use green colors to represent money or bring out the emotion
of greed. People also associate comfort and travel with
money so you maybe want ad in some brown and blue
colors on your web site.

Do not however take this information to mean that
the color(s) of your website is an end in itself, No, it is only a means to an end. There are so many other things that determine whether your site looks presentable, professional or not for instance some website designers struggle with how to organize images, links and content in general.
Websites that are viewed as clustered or rough usually put off your visitors.

The same principle can be applied to graphics or pictures
of your product on your web site. Package your products
with colors that will trigger your audience to b.uy. If your
selling a book about how to be more romantic, use red
and pink colors on the cover. I hope these simple web
site color techniques will increase your business’s sales.

How to solve your Web problems with a “Survey”

According to Wikipedia.org, Statistical surveys are used to collect quantitative information about items in a population. Surveys of human populations and institutions are common in political polling and government, health, social science and marketing research. A survey may focus on opinions or factual information depending on its purpose, and many surveys involve administering questions to individuals. When the questions are administered by a researcher, the survey is called a structured interview or a researcher-administered survey. When the questions are administered by the respondent, the survey is referred to as a questionnaire or a self-administered survey.

Do you have a list of e-mail addresses of your customers or
prospects? Do you have a l.ist of e-zine subscribers? If you
have their permission, send them an e-mail survey to conduct
market research. See if customers are satisfied with your
products or services, or see if they enjoyed their visit at
your web site.

You can learn things you didn’t know about your business by
surveying. Maybe your customers buy your main product just
to get the free gifts. Your visitors may think it’s to hard to
navigate through your web site. You may find out that most of
your customers make over $100,000 a year. By knowing this
type of important information you can improve your web site,
products/services, advertising, and marketing.

Popular Types Online Business Surveys:
Customer Satisfaction Surveys – what did you like or dislike
about our product or service, what can we improve or add,
how satisfied are you with our customer service, etc.

Web Site Feedback Surveys – did you find it to easy navigate
through our site, did you find the information you wanted, what
did you like or dislike about the site, how did you find our
site, etc.

Demographic Surveys – what’s your gender, age, income,
occupation, marital status, etc.

Sometimes people don’t want to take the time to fill out a
survey. To encourage them to fill out the survey offer them
a freebie if they fill it out. Some ideas are free ebooks, free
advertising, free reports, free internet services or a free
e-zine. Hold a free online contest or sweepstakes and ask
visitors to fill out a survey before they enter.

If you don’t yet have an e-mail address list you could post
your survey on appropriate newsgroups, forums and e-mail
discussion lists. You could also upload survey software to
your web site or use a free survey service on the internet.
To find such services just type in the keyword “survey” in
your search engine of choice.

Try having an Info Tech laughter…

This is purely banter, no harm intended whatsoever. In the midst of all my business and technology thoughts and researches, I found a video on google (Hitler responds to the iPad) which I have decided to name  “IT laugh”.  I think the video is cool, but I may be very wrong. Hope you like it…
