SmallBizViz will focus on two streams of audience: the offline small business that is local to me, and the online small business looking to create a web presence.

I am designing Drop Cards to take around to local businesses and leave on message boards around town. I'm offering a free diagnosis of web presence and will make suggestions on what to do to increase presence.

Thoughts?

I have started a new site called Smallbizviz.com to help small businesses increase their online visibility.

I would love it if some of my buddies would have a look and offer any critique at all!

I saw your note with concerns about this being overall affiliate training and not just selling WA. This is my fist day and that is my concern. How do you feel about it now?
Thanks

i am very concerned about it and will probably quit at the end of this month. I feel i can get more from Warrior Forum and WP Goldmine than from here anyway, and WF is a onetime fee and WPG is i think $9/mo.

I still don't see in the tutorials anything specific to marketing outside of WA. Maybe it isn't a pyramid scheme exactly, but it also isn't exactly what i thought it was.

How is it going for you so far?

Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed my blog post. I apologize for taking so long to respond but I was out of town for a few days . In response to your question about the squeeze page: Normally a squeeze page is separate from your website. It's used to get people interested in your product or service and provide their contact info to get more information. You can set up the squeeze page to immediately direct them to your website after they provide their contact information. However, another option is to place an "'opt-in" box on the first page of your website. This is usually placed at the top left or right side and you want to offer something to make them want to provide their information. Hope this helps! ~ Phyllis

I love Hubpages and dislike Squidoo lenses. Lenses just don't seem to go anywhere for me, whereas Hubs rock! I have hubs that pop up first in google.

How are my other newbie buddies doing? I feel like things are making more sense, and why WA promotes the sellling of selling (i.e., promoting WA) as a first step in the path.

Does anyone else feel like there is lots of information here on being a WA affiliate, but less on being an affiliate for everything else?

It seems that way to me, and while I am happy to be in this program, I am pretty sure I joined to find out how to be an affiliate and market a wide array of products according to my keyword research. Just a thought.

How is everyone doing? I am trying to find a good wordpress template for a fashion niche. Has anyone loaded WP onto WA yet? I have done it to namecheap server and assume it works the same way.

I've done quite a bunch... website optimization, hosting, building backlinks, webdesign, article marketing, ppc, research, adn a few tutorials. Only one of them was poor, but i can't remember which one now, but it's average rating was six, I might have given it a five...
Generally speaking though this is an excellent site, the resources seem to cover everything! Haven't had time to spend on the forum much though. How about you?

It's not that I'm not a believer, it's just not a good target market. Take my mother, for instance, she's 85 and definitely out. My sisters three are definitely not interested. My friends are mostly forester types who hate computers. I think I could find a couple of people, they just aren't really the right demographic.

Hi Bill, I'm new here too and I also am having a hard time getting friends and family to sign up. That's ok. I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities to find people to join this program.

I joined facebook. You can send all of your facebook friends and email without them feeling pressured. It is nice to know that there is an honest website you can join to learn real facts and not wild speculations. If it sounds too good to be true - - - it probably is.

facebook makes a lot more sense for me, too, as there are more people in my friends list that will be interested. I was surprised how many people from facebook (and I don't have that large a list there) looked into my hubpages and lenses.
