Internet and Network Marketing
Copyright © Zamzuri Zakaria

With the invention of the internet, network marketing is a booming business. To get into this type of business just ten years ago, you would have had to be introduced into it by a friend or relative. Now that you have the internet, you can bring your network marketing opportunities and your products to a lot more people than ever before. You can use instant video, audio, and complete explanations of your business on the web. However, to do all this, you will need to have a website.

One of the biggest problems with the majority of network marketing affiliate programs is that the website that they give you is basically a duplicate website that looks like everyone else’s which makes the search engines ignore the website. What you really need is a website of your own, one that you can personalize with all of your information.

What you will need first is a domain name. Try to select a domain name that has keywords in it pertaining to your business. If you can’t do this, then it is still possible to get good rankings with the search engines without it. Next, you will need web hosting. Cheap web hosting is okay; however, keep in mind that you will get what you pay for in most cases. You will want to experiment with several different web hosting services to find the right one that meets your needs and most importantly that it will be up 100% of the time.

You will need to purchase some software to design your website and software to help you link your website to other websites of similar interests and quality. There is a wide variety of software out there. You may have to do some research to find the right one for you; however, most people use Macromedia’s Dreamweaver or Frontpage. You could also purchase a website template that has already been designed for a small fee. There are also a few good free software programs that will help you design your website. There is really only one website linking software that you could ever need. Linking to your competitors is important because it will ensure that you get a steady flow of traffic from websites that are similar in content to yours. Zeus Reciprocal Link software is one of the best linking software programs out there.

You must have the determination to learn how to design your website. A little skill does not hurt either. It can be a very frustrating process to design your web pages; however, it can also be very exciting and exhilarating. You can find many books and websites that will give you the information that you need to learn how to design your website. No one, but you, will know what you want and need on your website. So why hire someone else to do it when you can do it yourself?
