is the brainchild of two young netrepreneurs who were
desperately trying to figure our how to put their marketing efforts
on "auto-pilot". For years they struggled, registering
their web sites with search engines, posting classifieds, submitting
and submitting into the wee hours of the nite.
worked our little fingers off, we thought we had a good web site,
good products, and the drive to make our site successful, but
I guess it just wasn't enough. We needed something more...we
needed a "draw" to get people to come to our web site".
So in June
of 1995, we decided to add a free classified ad section
to our website. We knew people would come if we offered something free. We looked all over the web to find something
that would allow us to offer free ads to our visitors. We found
a few programs which looked interesting, but most of them had
buttons and banners all over them promoting other peoples website's.
Why would we want to do that?
finally found a program we could customize to promote our products,
but by the time we bought it, and finally found someone to
install it for us--we we're out of pocket over $1500.00!
news is, it did turn out to be a great investment--it really paid off.
classified site was set up, we registered it with all the search
engines and added a link to our new free classified section from
our web site. It couldn't have been more than a week, when we
noticed a significant increase in our traffic.
coming to our site!
found a "draw". We could provide a valuable free tool
for our visitors, showcase our products, and build our own mailing
list all at the same time. It was a terrific concept that kept
our products in front of our visitors eyes time and time again
(the repeat traffic was great). Needless to say, we made back
our $1500.00 investment in less than 2 months. It was a system that
worked for us, why wouldn't it work for others?
the netrapreneurs we are, we were thinking "what other
products could we offer to our customers?"
