:nana: Starting an online business is not always as easy as it may sound. But, running an online business has many benefits over its offline counterpart. First, and the most appealing, is you'll most likely be working from home from your own computer, and working the hours that suit you. And secondly, you have the potential to make a lot more money than you would if you were working for someone else.

1. First - Create Your Ad

Use powerfull Keyword rich text in your ads so they will be picked up by search engines. Make sure your text is people Friendly and People Readable.

2. - Take a Picture and attach with your ad

You need a Picture with your ad. If you are serious about selling on product you will need a good Digital Camera, All things being Equal between 2 Ads the one with the best pictures will get the Best Bids.

03. You should try to place ads daily positively in the various responsive classified sites and if possible, place more ads
and everyday. If you have no database or classified sites you can mail me for classified database or you can search from google or yahoo.

04. 12. Headlines or Title of Ads is very much important factor for your success. When you start to place ads in Classified sites or Safelist, most of the sites require headlines. You should create title as per your Internet Business. So that title should be touchy and people can easily attract your ads. As per my experience, to start with 'How To" is very much effective for getting traffic.

05.Place ads in free directory and this will bring more traffic and it will inrease PR and high listing in major search engines. The followings are the free directory where you can place your listing in appropriate category.

06. Create Signature File for Maximum Exposure of Your Business : Signature File is one of the most important tool for Internet Marketing. You can advertise your product through signature file and it is very much effective. It is very much easy to create sig file. You can use sig file in Outlook Express or webbased email service like hotmail or yahoo etc. After login, you should click mail options and click signature file. Your signature file should not be longer than 6-7 lines and will contain some useful information of your product.

7 - Payment Options

It is always best to have lot's of Payment Options, Paypal, Credit Cards, Money Orders. If 2 Auctions are the same the one with the most flexible payment options will get the best bids ;)

Interesting tutorial, not quite so sure on the title though: "Online Success Kit"? This implies that it tells you everything you need to be successful online - and it doesn't. Perhaps you explain more on point one about how to get keyword rich text in and any particular methods with which you prefer?
