    It is the mark of a successful person or business to listen to their clients or advisers.

    It is commendable that you find the time and interest to serve your customers by allowing them the ability to give feedback.

    So many newcomers to this industry fail,simply from the outset.They dont grasp a simple concept.

    It is Not what you have to offer that is important.It is the Needs of your customer.

    “Grab my latest Offer”.Wrong.”Could this be the answer to your problem?”.Right.

    Thank you for the opportunity to give feedback.Hope it helps.


  3. Tips, and Rants, and How Tos work for me.

  4. How tos help me as well, specifically how to generate more targeted traffic.

    I'm pretty sure I'm not alone. I'm pretty sure just about every internet marketer could benefit from learning, and implementing how to generate more targeted traffic.

    I try to tweak my conversion from time to time as well, but I have a decent handle on conversion. Where as I am constantly trying to generate more targeted traffic.

    One idea on how Online Marketing Blog can do this, is to do what Lynn Terry, the owner of Clicknewz does. She allows her readers to create an anchor text, using their own keywords, back to their own website or blog. She does this by literally posting something right above the comment section that says in the name section of your comment, write “your name @ your keyword” This creates an anchor text directly back to the readers website or blog, not their twitter, or facebook account.

    This tremendously helps her readers. It also gets people to go immediately to her blog, first thing in the morning, and read any new posts, and make a comment on them, knowing they get an anchor text link that links directly to the readers website or blog.

    I love this idea. I think it would benefit Online Marketing Blog as well.

    Thank You-
