What Does Self-Respect Have to Do With Profit?

Are you serious about making money on the Internet? Then treat your online business LIKE a business. Just because no one knows who you are is any reason to act like a loser. Hiding behind Internet anonymity won't gain you any respect or trust. If you're operating a pornography site, then go ahead and hide. Most of us don't want to know you anyway, but if you are serious about making some very nice money in a fun, challenging and professional environment, clean up your act. Pretend your visitors can see you! Act as though they can.

Get a professional email address! How seriously are your subscribers or your web visitors going to take you when you email them with an address like or I'm being polite here! Some of the email addresses I've seen would curl your hair. I suspect these people need psychiatric help.

To me an offensive or self-derogatory email address reeks lack of professionalism and certainly lack of self-respect.

Personally, I would rather do business with than! I can't really see myself buying anything from, can you? I'd buy from though. See the

Another reason for you to get a proper ISP-based email address is that Yahoo, AOL and zwallet email addresses often fail. Emails get returned because your email box is full or there are other problems with the free service provider. It is rare to have mail returned from other ISP's. If you are not hearing from someone, it may be because they can't get through to you!

Many of my subscribers who are with Yahoo, AOL or zwallet have never received my newsletter because month after month their mailbox is full. Finally I delete them from my subscriber list. Does losing a subscriber this way bother me? Nope! Anyone who
doesn't even look after their email won't make a good business person and therefore won't benefit from my help. If they're not a good business person, they aren't really interested in making money on the Internet and they will likely never buy any of the products or services I sell or recommend. If they do, they'll more than likely never put what they buy to any use. Since that is a lose-lose situation, it is better terminated

If your inbox is constantly full, then stop signing up for every second newsletter or offer on the Internet. Flailing around crazily will only make you crazy. Focus in on what you want to accomplish and sign up only for newsletters that will help you succeed. Ignore the hype as much as possible. That offer that expires at midnight tonight...will likely still be there tomorrow! And if it's not, a better one will have already come along anyway.

If you're going to spend some money, spend it on buying tools to automate your business and on advertising.

Show yourself some respect and ditch the stupid or sleazy email address. Develop a professional image and people will be more comfortable doing business with you. Remember, one reason people don't buy from you is they DON'T TRUST YOU! Well, heck, this isn't rocket science, folks.
