Caroles Market Tips 101

I get asked often the best way to market or advertise. There are tons of places to do it. Many of us have heard the money is in the list. But what about those who don't even know what to do with the list. Are they lost forever. Other than the most important marketing tip, which is word of mouth here are some easy tips to remember.

1. Most marketers, or direct sales people look for the easy classified ads. For these to work well, they must first be written well. Use good grammar, and a spell check if uncertain of anything.

2. Don't use yahoo groups that are primarily spam groups. You'll know these groups when you see them. Chances are you'll get lost in the crowd.

3. Make a schedule for your self. Market one day, advertise and network the next.

4. Follow the rules of the group. If there are certain days a group doesn't do ads, or asks you not to include links, abide by those rules.

5. Help others. You will build your reputation, and at the same time help a new comer to the field.

5. Use pictures in the ad if allowed. Pictures bring the product closer to the audience. It is the next best thing to touching the product. Pictures say a thousand words.

6. Be descriptive about your product, and about yourself. Why should the reader buy your product, and more importantly from you.

These will go a long way in building your relationships, and good luck!

I have opinions

But I am still undecided. So, this is what I definitely decided to do! If someone can convince me, and I mean really convince me without any uncertaintanty of who to vote for, that person will have a prize! That's right I am giving a prize. So we will have a contest. Now this contest IS NOT something for me to gain customers, it is to finally, once and for all help me decide. I am leaning one way, but I KNOW I don't have as much info as I should. I am hoping some of you can help me! Share my blog so I can get plenty of opinions. First let me tell you a little about my self. I am a wahm of 2 beautiful girls, and you can see pics of them here I have been with my husband 17 1/2 years. This June we will celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. That's a big accomplishment in this day and age. I have been a nurse for 17 1/2 yrs. I have several online businesses, and blogging is one of my hobbies. I love twitter, myspace, ning and other social networks. I love all my online friends, and they totally ARE the reason I don't go out much. I am registered as an independent, so I can think freely, and instill that belief in my children. I also believe that it is OKAY to change your mind about things. So with that said, HERE IS HOW I WANT YOU TO EXPLAIN YOUR CHOICE TO ME. Explain things to me as if I had an 8th grade education. Make it simple! Tell me what you think of the economic plans, economy and why Senator John McCain or Barack Obama are the right choice. Keep in mind, that any racist, sexist or offensive material will be deleted and reported to your isp. Thank you for your participation. Also, I will be sending the winner of MY CHOICE a candle from creative scentsations, and the link is below.
Creative Scentsations, is a small business owned by Linda Hart. They are soy candles hand poured by Linda, so that means, no candles sitting on the shelf.

I will email the winner on NOVEMBER 5th!!
Thanks for reading

Here's why I don't believe in JOE THE PLUMBER

If Joe the Plumber were really interested in expanding his business, and just like one of us.....why is he on the campaign trail with John McCain. I too once thought I'd vote for McCain, but after seeing this, I am not so sure anymore. Most people I talk to feel McCain is out of touch. I don't feel that JOE THE PLUMBER is any more in touch. Have you seen the pictures of "JOE" signing autographs and such. Don't get me wrong, but now he's coming out with a book? How is that the average "JOE" just trying to make his business work???? "COME on JOE, you sold out to politics for some minutes of fame and money!!!! The truth is, you don't care any more about how we are shaping up, then the politicians do!!!!

If Joe the Plumber were really interested in making change, or even how America is shaping up, or was, he'd be on your doorstep, or mine, asking us how we can better America. Not pulling for one candidate or the other. But because, John McCain mentioned Joe, Joe feels some loyalty I suppose. After all, it got him to meet Barack Obama as well. Aren't we all a little sick of JOE?

Just this nurses opinion. Too bad nurses aren't valued like "Joe the Plumber!"
