Online entrepreneurs often struggle when trying to create a profitable website. This book outlines how to start an easy online business, and gives entrepreneurs what they need to start making money quickly, without a lot of hype or ridiculous promises. It's over 100 pages of practical "how to," and dozens of resources to cut learning time and costs to the bone.
Local Web Secrets: A Guide to Starting and Running a Profitable Local Website (http://www.localwebsecrets.com), a unique new book by Brian Cook, reveals why local websites are among the quickest and easiest ways to create a real online business, and how to get one started successfully in less time, and for far less money, than most would imagine.
What are some of the advantages to starting a local website? Brian outlines the following five items as being advantageous:
1. Less Expensive: Local sites don't usually require dedicated servers, fancy graphics, or staff to handle them. They can often be started with nothing but an inexpensive shared hosting account, a cheap (or free) website template, and off-the-shelf software.
2. Less Competition: In most cases, local website owners will be the only ones running this type of site in the local community. What little competition there might be will rarely have any serious degree of marketing skills, so even a basic grasp of online marketing will put local website owners way ahead of everyone else in the local market.
3. Easier Promotion: Getting links to a local web site, optimizing for natural search engine traffic and building a membership are all much easier when dealing with a local audience.
4. Better Response and Retention Rates: It's a lot easier to get people to take advantage of a special offer from a business they know than one off in some distant part of the country.
5. More Visitor Loyalty: Since local website owners are part of their community, the site's visitors will be more comfortable interacting with website members.
The book also contains descriptions of forty different types of sites that can be started locally, including local sports, church directory, classified ads, car clubs, real estate, and more. In addition, the resource section includes dozens of reviewed tools and services that can help get product development efforts up and running fast.
