Spending Time on Driving Traffic to Your Internet Home Business

Spending time on driving traffic to your Internet Home Business is a waste of time if you do not have this crucial element in place.

Everyone reading this has at least one Internet Home Business, many of us have a few, some of us have lots. I wonder how many of us are missing a crucial piece of the puzzle in our sites that make all of the time and effort we spend on getting people to our sites a waste of time?

First, let’s look at a few harsh realities of doing business on the Internet. The first reality is this: out of a hundred people who own an Internet Home Business, less than 2% of them will be successful. That is a scary statistic to be sure. Less than 2 % is a figure that we all need to put up on our bathroom mirrors and look at every day. One of the reasons this figure is so low, compared to the success rating in the real world of anywhere from 12 % to 15 %, depending on whose statistics you use, is the nature of where we do business; on the Internet.

The problem of doing business on the Internet and owning an Internet Home Business is this; we all operate in a big deep black hole. No one knows we exist unless we tell them, again and again. Setting up shop on the Internet is almost the same thing as setting up shop in our basements. We could live on the side of a busy highway, thousands of people could be driving by our houses daily, and all that traffic is wasted because we are operating in our basements and no one knows we exist. Kind of like our sites on the Internet.

We have a multi-fold problem; we need a way to get people, traffic to know where we are, that we do exist. Then we need to get them to visit our site. And then after all of that, we actually need to get them to do whatever it is we want them to do when they eventually get to our site. That sentence contains the contents of a small book, let alone a short article. I want to make one point, out of that potential small book. My point is this: we are all wasting our time if, when they come to our sites, there is nothing there.

95% of the Internet Home Business sites out there have less than 5 pages of content. I wonder what the owners of these sites are thinking when they put these sites up. When I think of 5 pages of content or less, the first thing I think of is that this site is not a business; it is more of a hobby. If that is the case, that is great. The problem exists when these site owners are thinking and acting as if they have a real business on their hands. I do not want to be the one to burst their dreams, but 5 pages of content are not going to do it.

Is there a magic number that says, when you cross this threshold, you stop being a hobby and you actually have an Internet Home Business, with the focus on the business part? If there is, I am not aware of one. My point is this, when people visit your site, there has to be some meat on the bones; there has to be a reason for them to stay, and most importantly, there has to be a reason for them to come back. We are talking about original content here. Original content is KING on the Internet.

If you want your business to succeed, you need original content on your site, without it, your chances of success are slim to none. Original content is content that you created or had created for you, that appears nowhere else on the Internet. I will get into the search engine ramifications of this later, but the source and the originality of the content are very important. People and search engines both like to see and read something that appears nowhere except on your site.

I hope this has triggered you to take a second look at your site and to reevaluate the amount and the originality of your content. Have a great day.

Business Cards: A Stepping Stone to Enhance Your Success

Have you ever been handed over a business card which is petite in size, is impeccably designed and which has immediately caught your attention? You definitely must have had such an experience at least once in life! Business cards are meant to be the first introductory tool that enlightens your prospective customers and other important clients about your business and gives them the perfect way to store your address so as to contact you as and when required. When you are handed over a card, the first thing which instantly grabs your attention is the design and the style of placing all the matter or content.

Therefore, it is vital that the business card must appear neat, well created and the design should be different. An ordinary and dull card fails to hold the attention of the recipient and thus it gets lost somewhere in the drawer or in the dustbin. So, the first and foremost thing which you must take care is to contact an online printing company that can offer creative and unique card designs which promise to come to the notice of the prospective customer in the first go itself. As the first impression is definitely of the lasting nature, it becomes imperative to ensure that there are no flaws left and your cards are designed to be the best and the most eye-catching marketing weapon.

What your basic goal remains is that even if the receipt of your business cards has no immediate need of your products or services, still he/she keeps your cards in a nicely maintained business folder and also, remembers your card. This will ensure that when the person requires the services or products similar to the one you are dealing with, the first name which instantly strikes their mind is your and they instantly contact you and fix a meeting to talk about the future dealings.

But when you get your cards printed, it’s crucial to check that all the information that you are providing in the card is authentic and there is no printing error. For instance, you hand over your card to your client which can prove to be important in your development. The person actually desires to work with you and in order to ask for your quote or request for a presentation, he/she tries to call up. But your contact details are actually misprinted in the card and the client is unable to contact you. Thus, by a simple mistake on your part, you can actually lose an important client. So, after the printing of the cards, do cross check them and then pass on the business cards to other to make an invincible mark for yourself and your company.

Contemporary And Modern Art

Contemporary art

Contemporary art can be defined variously as art produced at this present point in time or art produced since World War II. The definition of the word contemporary would support the first view, but museums of contemporary art commonly define their collections as consisting of art produced since World War II.

Contemporary art is exhibited by commercial contemporary art galleries, private collectors, corporations, publicly funded arts organizations, contemporary art museums or by artists themselves in artist-run spaces. Contemporary artists are supported by grants, awards and prizes as well as by direct sales of their work.

There are close relationships between publicly funded contemporary art organisations and the commercial sector. For instance, in Britain a handful of dealers represent the artists featured in leading publicly funded contemporary art museums.

Contemporary art can sometimes seem at odds with a public that does not feel that art and its institutions share its Britain in the 1990s contemporary art became a part of popular culture, with artists becoming stars, but this did not lead to a hoped for “cultural utopia”.

Modern art

Modern art is a general term used for most of the artistic work reckoned anywhere from the early 17th century until the present time.
Modern art refers to the new approach to art which placed emphasis on representing emotions, themes, and various abstractions. Artists experimented with new ways of seeing, with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art, often moving further toward abstraction.

The history of painting

The history of painting reaches back in time to artifacts from pre-historic humans, and spans all cultures. The history of painting represents a continuous, though disrupted, tradition from Antiquity. Across cultures, and spanning continents and millennia, the history of painting is an ongoing river of creativity, that continues into the 21st century.

Painting is no longer about representation, it is about inspiration. However, painting today is too focused on the creation of the ?new? rather than the creation of the ?true?. The 20th century was infatuated with new painting styles and materials, which has led to a focus on the mode and medium of expression rather than the message being expressed. After one-and-a-half centuries of innovation, with so many art taboos shattered, with so much of the field colonized and long-inhabited, the search for the new is becoming increasingly shallow and repetitive. Creating the new, purely for newness? sake, can bring academic significance but offers little long-term weight. Truth and beauty, on the other hand, have longevity ? they affect the viewer and the resonance of that experience lingers for a long time. All three need to be combined to create contemporary art, abstract art or any other forms of art that has impact as well as freshness.
