Jun 26, 2008
You have decided to start your online business. It is so great and you are assured to meet success. Millions will rain in a few days and in the next few months you'll be richer than Bill Gates. What will you do then? You'll get bored! With this in mind, below I give you 5 secrets that will make your site a failure and years of bankruptcy.

Secret No. 1: Sell a product that you do not understand.

It is essential to know at your fingertips the product you want to sell. Mastering this subject does not guarantee the sale, but helps greatly. Imagine yourself in your favorite supermarket, in ecstasy before a 21-inch monitor. The seller arrives and you ask: "That's a Trinitron screen?" and hey reply "It's a very good technology that makes the picture more beautiful and especially better than when it is not a Trinitron. But it is very complicated so I will not bore you with details ". It is obvious that you are going to take your caddie and spinning at the nearest competitor.

Conclusion: Do your visitors flee at the ignorance of your products?

Secret No. 2: Sell a product of poor quality.

It is one of the best-kept secrets and yet the publicity that it generates for your site is immense. When you are satisfied with a product, you recommend it to a few people but when you get a poor product you talk to everyone: the media and friends alike.

It is therefore essential if you want to talk about yourself, offer products or services of poor quality. Moreover, ultimately this will reduce your workload. Ahhhh ... Finally calm.

Secret No. 3: Do not collect email addresses.

If you want to fail, and that is what I wish you because I want you to be happy, it is necessary to minimize contacts and leads. What is the base of your income? The client. And before being a client, it was a prospect, usually a name on a list or a visitor visiting your site by accident.

Secret Number 4: Making a site confusing.

There will always be sites that link to yours, and sooner or later, some engines will add you to their bases and from that moment, it will be an escalation of your website traffic. To minimize the risks of facing this influx of unwanted visitors, make sure that three-fourths of the links are broken, that pages are poorly written and confusing, URLs are more than 90 characters and are encrypted but especially do not divulgue your contact information online. You don't wish to show that you are a real person don't you?

Secret Number 5: No market research.

If you are looking to market a new product, you need to avoid keywords research. by doing so you will never know if your product is in high demand. Just knowing if your product is in high demand is not important and you don't care about that. You can invest your money with no problem in that product.

If you are seeing yourself in these secrets than it's time for you to thing again about doing business online. It's still the time to figure that out before it's too late!

To Your Success!
