What is quickest and fastest way to start an Online Business?

I have been running online business for almost 4 years. People always asking me this question, what is the fastest and easiest way to start an online Business?

I normally tell them straight away, online Business is not a "Get Quick Scheme". If you think you can start an online business and make quick money in a short period of time. Then, you are looking for a wrong business.

Online Business is just another Business. But the only differences are:-
  1. Worldwide market
  2. Low Set Up Cost
  3. 24/7
  4. Huge Profit margin
And it need time to Build your online empire.

In order to help you quick start you online business, i will recommend you selling other people product or "Affiliate Product". If you manage to sell the product, you will get paid by commission.

The best place to get a affiliate product is through . There are about 10,000 product available for you to sell.

What you need to do is
"Market" the product.

You can start with
Google Adwords to advertise the product. When you are using this strategy to market the product, always remember "ROI" (Return of Investment). Do ensure that,what you sell can cover the cost of the advertising. If not, you are making a lost!

Hope this give you some ideas on how to kick start your online business for year 2009.

Merry X'mas & Happ New Year 2009!

STOMPING Search Engines 2 is here!

StomperNet magazines & CD1 & 2

No more food left! :-(

Dorothy Loong is enjoying the food! :-)

My Wife Dorothy Loong and me, Bernard Hay

I am so excited to get my learning material from StomperNet about Search Engine Optoimization strategy and at the same time celebrate my wife B'day at Marche the Curve.

They serve all kinds of Western food. One of the operation manager Alex Sim told me that, during Puasa time, the response is so overwhelming. You have to come early or make advance booking. If not, you will be very dissapointed to come all the way and don't have a seat for you.

One thing that i like Marche is the food they serve is really "Fresh".

Do Blogs Influence Female Consumers?

Blogs sway creators more than readers

More than one-third of US female Internet users surveyed either contributed to or read blogs in March 2008, according to the BlogHer/Compass Partners' "2008 Social Media Study."

Weekly Blogging Activities of US Female Internet Users, March 2008 (millions)

In the study, a full 29% of female blog readers said they had made a decision to buy a product based on information found in a blog post. Female blog publishers—defined as those who read, post and publish blogs at least once a week—were apparently even more influenced by blogs: 38% said they had decided to buy something after reading a blog post.

Need data for presentations? eMarketer subscribers can download charts instantly — over 50,000 choices.

Blog influence cuts both ways, however. Nearly three out of 10 female blog readers said they had decided not to buy something based on a blog post, as did 32% of female blog publishers.

5 Principle of Testing!

Our entire philosophy is based on the principle of testing EVERYTHING you do — and tracking the results.

It’s the only way to keep track of what you’re doing right with your online business, and what you need to improve.

For example, let’s say you want to make some changes to the layout of your web site. Obviously, you don’t want to make changes just for the heck of it. Any changes you make should be for one main purpose: to do a better job of converting visitors into customers.

But if you don’t test the new version vs. the old version, how will you know if the changes you make actually DO improve the performance of your website? And if you don’t track the results of your testing, how will you be able to know exactly which changes had the greatest effect?

Simply put, if you don’t test and track every single change you make to your site… every promotion you run… and every traffic generation strategy you try… you’re going to be shooting in the dark every time. And there’s absolutely no way of knowing what you’re going to hit.

E000150.jpgSo here’s my list of the top 5 things you absolutely MUST know about testing to keep your business on target.

1. Only test ONE thing at a time

The most important thing to remember is this: KEEP IT SIMPLE.

Test one thing at a time. It’s the only way you’ll ever know exactly which change is causing which effect.

Let’s say you want to increase the number of opt-ins from your site. There are lots of different things you could test to make this happen.

You could try putting your opt-in form in a different location. You could change the wording of your opt-in offer. You could try offering a free gift instead of just a free newsletter.

But if you made all these changes at ONCE and your opt-in numbers began to skyrocket, how would you know which change was responsible? Besides, one of these changes could actually be having a negative impact — and you’d never even realize it!

If you have no way of knowing, then the next time you change your opt-in offer, you’re back to square one.

2. The MOST important numbers you need to know

You need to know TWO main numbers to keep on top of your website performance: the number of visitors you get and the number of sales you make in any given period. That way, you can figure out exactly how many visitors you need to attract to your site in order to make a sale.

Here’s how you do it:

Let’s say you got 300 visitors to your site in one day and you made 12 sales. Simply divide the number of visitors by the number of sales like this: 300/12 = 25.

For every 25 visitors you got that day, you made 1 sale. (Expressed as a percentage, this means your conversion rate was 4%, as 1/25 = 0.04)

If that conversion rate remains steady, then you can expect to make one sale for every 25 visitors. If you get 100 visitors, you’ll make 4 sales. If you get 1000 visitors, you should make 40 sales.

It’s a simple conversion — something everyone should know. It tells you EXACTLY how well your website is doing its job.

If that conversion rate drops for some reason, it could mean there’s a problem with your website — and you should do a thorough examination of it right away.

On the other hand, if it spikes, then you should try to figure out why more visitors are suddenly buying your products — so you can repeat this success!

3. Test the most important things FIRST

Don’t start off trying to track 30 things at once! Focus on your money makers first, as they’ll have the greatest impact on your business.

If your site sells more than one product, then you should be tracking the conversion rate for each product separately. Maybe your site is doing a great job at selling one product, but a lousy job at selling another. This is something you need to know, so you can figure out what’s going right in the first case and what’s going wrong in the second.

4. Think in terms of RATIOS as opposed to ABSOLUTES

Think in terms of percentages, not whole numbers.

Instead of thinking, "Hey, I made 25 sales last week!" — think, "Hey, I made 25 sales per 1000 visitors last week!"

Knowing you made 25 sales is nice — but it doesn’t tell you anything by itself.

If you know you made 25 sales per 1000 visitors, however, you know your conversion rate is 2.5%. (In other words, 2.5% of all your visitors last week bought something from you.) If it was a normal week, then going forward you can expect that 2.5% of all your customers will probably buy something.

This kind of knowledge is ESSENTIAL if you want to forecast how much revenue you’re going to make in any given time period. It also gives you a baseline number that you can refer back to when testing different elements of your web site in order to grow your income bigger.

For example: imagine if you changed the headline of your sales page this morning — and you ended up making 25 sales, just like you did yesterday. Does that mean that the change to your headline had no effect on your sales numbers?

Not necessarily.

Maybe you only got 100 visitors to your site today, instead of 1000. That means your conversion rate today is actually 25% — which is HUGE! That means 1 in every 4 people is taking action on your site. Wow. That must have been some headline you wrote.

(However, you really should find out why you only got 100 visitors to your site today. Once you bring that number back up to 1000, then if your conversion rate stays the same, you’ll be making 250 sales a day!)

5. Track your conversions by SOURCE

It’s not just enough to know what your conversion rate is. You’ve got to know where your best-converting visitors are coming from.

For example, are your most qualified visitors coming from pay-per-click ads you’re running through Yahoo Search Marketing? Or are they coming from your organic listing on Google — or maybe your affiliate network?

This is something you need to know! It’ll help you understand where your most lucrative stream of traffic is coming from — so you can focus your efforts there and work on growing those high-converting traffic numbers even bigger.

I’m interested in hearing how your testing is performing… please leave me a comment.

Microsoft bought over Yahoo?

Microsoft said Friday that it has signed a deal to buy an online advertising management company, in a sign that the software giant is aggressively making its foray into the lucrative Internet advertising world.

San Francisco-based Rapt Inc. became Microsoft's newest acquisition target as the company has been trying to gain its clout in other business arenas like online advertising.

Rapt makes software that helps companies manage their online advertising operations, including determining the most profitable pricing and placement strategies. The company's clients include major media companies such as MTV Networks, NBC Universal and NewsCorp.'s Fox Interactive Media.

Meanwhile, officials from Microsoft and Yahoo reportedly met earlier this week to hold informal talks on a merger proposal, but the talks did not lead to an agreement.

The meeting between the two giants did not involve any negotiation of Microsoft's earlier high-profile bid to buy Yahoo, initially valued at 44.6 billions dollar. Microsoft officials only presented their vision for a combined company during the session.

The holding of the meeting suggests that the Silicon Valley search engine may be softening its stance against Microsoft's takeover offer, which its board of directors rejected last month by saying it undervalues the company, industry analysts said.

Microsoft's effort to take over Yahoo is seen widely as a step by the software giant to challenge Google's newly-established dominance in the online search and advertising markets. Its offer to buy Yahoo was the largest in the company's 33-year history.

11 Deadly Marketing Myths

MYTH #1: Starting an online business is expensive

Reality: Depending on the type of business you wish to start, your start-up costs can be as little as 50 bucks.

The fact is, most businesses do NOT need to incur expensive start-up costs… and most businesses should not invest a lot of start-up capital before they’ve tested their business and their market online. That’s where so many "dot bombs" made such a grave mistake in the past, and there’s just no need to take that risk.

Only once you’ve tested your business idea on the ‘Net and found it to be a viable opportunity should you start investing in the kind of software, web design, inventory (or whatever) that you’ll need to grow your business. Then again, you may want to just do it all yourself every step of the way…

We started our first site in 1996 on a budget of 20 bucks.

MYTH #2: I need to be an expert before I can start a business

Reality: It’s really a shame that so many people put off starting the online business they’re dreaming of because they think that before they can start, they need to become a web designer… a search engine expert… a programmer… and an MBA.

The truth is that the most successful people on the Internet are often none of the above!

The key: Learn just ONE thing, and learn it well… then move on to the NEXT strategy, and the next, and the next…

Anybody can start an online business. All it takes is a little courage to start and a little resolve to keep going and keep learning new strategies, techniques, and ways to grow and improve your business.

MYTH #3: All the good Internet business ideas are gone

Reality: Opportunity abounds on the Internet, and e-business success is not a waning proposition. Far from it — the online shopping community is rapidly increasing both in terms of how many online shoppers there are and how much they’re willing to spend.

And there are so many proven business models on the ‘Net that you can simply follow… or there’s plenty of room for you to develop your own, unique approach to your market. And there are so many different things you can sell! For example, you could…

  • Sell your own products
  • Sell your own services
  • Drop ship products
  • Recommend affiliate products
  • Sell ad space
  • Joint venture with like-minded businesses
  • Start an affiliate program

… and more.

These are the top online profit streams, but of course you can always find others. Plus, there’s no reason why you can’t incorporate several of them into your business model! The key is to focus on one, maximize revenue from it, and then move on to the next.

MYTH #4: I need a good product idea before I can start

Reality: You do not need a product idea to start — and not only that: If you do start with a product idea… you’ll be off to a bad start!

The reality is, most businesses that start off with what they think is a good product idea are destined for failure. Your product might be great, but if nobody wants it, your business isn’t going to get very far!

That’s why it makes so much more sense to look for your market first. If you can find a need in a market you can reach, then simply give them what they’re asking for… your business is bound for success from day one.

For example, we know a man named Eric Weeks who doesn’t really like trucks very much — he’s never owned one himself. But when he noticed that thousands of people search the Internet for "truck accessories" every day, he knew there was a market just waiting for him to give them what they needed…

Well, we interviewed Eric for our "Secrets To Their Success" Private Web Site when his site was only one year old… and already Eric was generating $800,000 annually in online sales!

Eric’s advice is, "I sure as heck wouldn’t consider building an e-commerce site on personal interests. So whether it’s weight loss or travel, home business or truck bed covers… if enough people are interested in those subjects, then THERE is where you need to apply your efforts."

It pays to remember: Find your market first. Then look for a product to give them.

MYTH #5: I need "brand recognition" on the Internet

Reality: Online branding has been preached in the past as one of the big "Do or Die" marketing strategies. But the fact is, "brand recognition" is something you probably don’t even need.

Effective branding creates the kind of fierce product loyalty that leaves customers indifferent to the marketing tactics of the competition. It’s what compels you to walk past all of those no-name-brand on-sale colas at the local grocery store and pick up the 6-pack of Coca-Cola that costs three times more. It’s what makes children plead and beg to go back to McDonalds again and again. And it’s what has made the phrase "Just Do It" synonymous with Nike.

It’s all very impressive, right? Well… yes. But the truth is, most small, online business do NOT need to make their company or product a household name — and will likely go bankrupt trying.

You’ll be most successful and most profitable if you closely target your market. Focus on getting your business name and your advertising in front of your best potential customers — the people who have an expressed interest in what you’re offering — as opposed to everyone!

If you’re a small or home-based business then, chances are, you don’t have the millions of advertising dollars it takes to build a nationally recognized brand and make your company a household name — at least not yet!

So let’s skip the high-priced large corporate branding techniques — after all, these strategies simply don’t translate to e-businesses with limited advertising budgets — and instead, focus on your target market.

MYTH #6: Affiliate programs are hard to start

Reality: Enlisting an army of affiliates is extremely easy!

The great thing about affiliate programs is that it’s easy to persuade people to join. They have nothing to lose as there’s no cost to them, it just takes them a few minutes to get set up, and they have the potential to make a lot of money!

They persuade visitors to click through to your site by posting a simple banner ad or text link on their web site — or perhaps by writing a short referral letter to their customers — and you do everything else. You lead the visitor through your web site, close the sale, process their payment, fulfill their order, and handle any customer service issues.

You also track how many orders each affiliate sends you, calculate their commissions, and ensure that they get paid what they deserve. You take care of the big issues and they get paid for simply referring new customers to your site.

So what’s in it for you?

There are no advertising costs! With your own affiliate program, you only pay for advertising that gets results! It doesn’t matter how much traffic an affiliate’s site receives — whether the site gets 10 visitors a day or 10,000 visitors a day! You are paying on a per result basis… so you make money every single time!

And, thanks to affiliate tracking software, managing hundreds, even thousands, of affiliates is extremely easy. The software automatically keeps track of which affiliate made which sale… where each customer is coming from… exactly how much you owe each affiliate… etc.

So tracking 10,000 affiliates is just as easy as tracking one affiliate! It takes us about two days a month to run our affiliate program — and we have over 100,000 affiliates who generate over $3 million in business for us every year! (That’s about $250,000 in sales for every day that we work on it!)

So the moral of this story is: Affiliate programs are incredibly easy to start, easy to run, and definitely worth your while!

MYTH #7:
Pay-per-click advertising is expensive and doesn’t work

Reality: Pay-per-click listings are an excellent option for small online businesses, or for those of you who need a quick, cheap injection of highly targeted traffic to your web site!

Pay-per-clicks can get you to where you want to go in the search engines fast — and if you ensure that you are not competing against large, wealthy corporations for hugely popular keywords, you can get there without spending a lot of money.

If you are just getting started online, you are in an especially interesting position to begin experimenting with the pay-per-clicks, because the beauty of pay-per-click advertising is that you can see immediate results. You don’t have to wait weeks or months for your listing to be posted. You can simply fork over the cash for a top-three position and see how it affects your business…

Just keep it simple! Don’t try to outbid industry giants who can afford to pay big money for the highest-traffic terms. Go after the lower numbers and the neglected terms that you can scoop up for next to nothing and use to your enormous advantage.

If you don’t get the kind of ROI (return on investment) you expected, you can simply cancel your bids for that spot, and try out another one!

You can test, hone, re-test, and perfect your pay-per-click marketing campaign very easily with pay-per-click search engines, as long as you keep an eye on your bid amounts and watch to ensure that you are always at least breaking even on your bids.

MYTH #8: "If you build it, they will come"

Reality: Many people think that if they build an attractive, well-designed web site, people will come to it.

Don’t believe it! It may be true of phantom baseball players in Kevin Costner movies… but it’s not true for YOUR business on the Internet!

You can’t just build a pretty web site and pack it full of interesting, useful information… and expect it to succeed. No matter HOW good your site or your business model may be, this just won’t work.

Why? Because nobody will find you!

People won’t just appear out of nowhere. In order to build a business that has a good chance of being successful, you have to take your great business model and your beautiful web site… and promote the heck out of it!

You know how the old saying in the brick-and-mortar business is "location, location, location"?

Well, online, you could say that the key to success is: "Promotion, promotion, promotion!" The only way to get people coming to your web site is to let them know about it… and to put it right in front of their faces at every opportunity. Whatever marketing techniques you choose, whether they’re free or paid, online or offline, small scale or huge endeavors, make sure that you’re running your promotional campaigns constantly and that you test their effectiveness.

MYTH #9: Viral marketing does not work!

Reality: Viral marketing allows you to exponentially increase your visibility online by turning your existing network of clients and newsletter subscribers into a giant word-of-mouth referral machine!

Much like a flu virus which can easily spread from one person to many others, awareness of your company can be dramatically increased by persuading your clients and subscribers to refer you to their friends and family.

Hotmail, for example, is probably the BEST example of viral marketing there is. Why? Because their phenomenal success has been based on their simple tactic of adding a small Hotmail advertisement to the bottom of every e-mail sent by a user on the Hotmail system.

A Hotmail user sends a friend an e-mail. At the bottom of the e-mail, the following advertisement appears:


Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at

The friend thinks to themselves, "Hey Look! I can get a free e-mail account from MSN Hotmail. Obviously they are a reputable company because my friend has an account with them… I think I’ll sign up for one too!"

A word-of-mouth referral from a trusted friend or relative carries much more weight than self-proclamations of greatness!

So the friend clicks on the Hotmail link and heads off to get their very own Hotmail account. Essentially, Hotmail has developed the ultimate referral system! Hotmail users promote Hotmail each and every time they send an e-mail.

The power of viral marketing lies in the snowball effect these referrals can have on your business. And these referrals pack a great deal of punch, because people who learn about your business via a third party are much more likely to trust you.

So believe it when we tell you that viral marketing does work, and it works very well.

MYTH #10: My customers don’t want me to e-mail them

Reality: If you don’t e-mail your customers and subscribers, you’ll be doing them a disservice!

Think about it: Your opt-in e-mail list is made up of people who want to hear from you. (They’ve visited your site, or they’ve come into your shop, and they’ve decided that they like what they see enough to give you their e-mail addresses.)

And that means you are giving your customers and subscribers something they’ve asked you for. When someone gives you their e-mail address, they understand that you’ll be using it to send them information that they actually WANT to receive.

Plus, you are developing valuable lifetime relationships with your customers and subscribers. E-mail allows you to contact the people on your list over and over again, so that you can build genuine relationships with them. Don’t think your customers won’t appreciate this!

And the best part is that e-mail marketing really works! 82% of online buyers have completed at least one purchase in response to an e-mail promotion. With numbers like these, you can understand why we’re always stunned to hear about a business that STILL hasn’t started using e-mail marketing.

MYTH #11: Web salescopy should be short

Reality: Long copy is generally preached as a "no-no" by online marketers. They’ll tell you that you should stick to using multiple short "pages" that contain a single, complete thought.

But do you know what I discovered after extensive testing and re-testing? Long copy sells! The key here is that if people are interested, they will read as much as you can write. I have proven this time and time again.

We have always used a direct salesletter that is about eight pages long….

We use these eight pages to walk the reader smoothly through the sales process… so by the time the reader arrives at the section where we explain our offer and ask for the sale, they are convinced of the value of the product and are open to our sales "pitch."

Have we tried short copy on this site? You bet!

We tested a multi-page web site, but when we broke it down into four separate web pages, sales dropped by almost 70%!

The fact is, a well-constructed salesletter leads people through each stage of the sales process, giving them exactly the right information at exactly the right time to ensure that you overcome their objections to buy and close the sale successfully.

It takes a certain amount of time to orchestrate this process, and you need to implement a number of steps to create the right formula. That’s why your salescopy often needs to be long.

So the moral of this story is, long copy can definitely work!

It all depends on your business, your market, and the product or service that you are trying to sell. You should take the time to test both strategies on your web site and see which works best for you.

Best product to sell on 2008?

What is the best product to sell online for 2008? hhhmm....... I guess,definitely not a "Physical Product"! because it involves manufacturing,shipping & packaging cost.

So, what is the BEST Product? The answer is "INFORMATION" product.

Yes, information product such as ebook and software. Think about this, what is the richest man, Mr Bill Gates is selling???? Software!

The advantages of information product is
  1. NO Manufacturing,Shipping & Packaging cost!
  2. Instant Delivery!
  3. Low set up cost. Just paid one time cost
  4. 100% profit!
But, someone will say, i am not a writer and do not know how to write. I hate writing! How to come out with a Ebook or software?

Well, you do not have to write yourself! Hire someone to write for you.

For instance, i only spend 3 days to come out with a ebook. If i am going to write myself, it might takes few month.

You can view my sample ebook website at

That is easy right! so , Just Do It.

You can hire someone to write at

Another way is interview an expert in that certain industry. Say, "cancer prevention". What you need to do is interview 3-4 doctor and convert the information to Ebook.

Wa la! you have an ebook ready to sell online.
Besides that, there are tones of articles online.

You can use this articles to publish a ebook.
What skill do you need?
"Copy and Paste"

I believe anyone who is reading this articles will know how to do it.
If you found the articles,send an email to them to get a permission to publish the articles inside your book. Tell them the benefits they will have.

The final part is set up a website with compelling sales copy and sell the ebook. Always monitor the conversion of your website. You cannot sell more if you do not know your website conversion. In other how many visitor that convert to customer.

Hope you enjoy the reading!
