SiteSell's Newest Masters Course Addresses The #1 Barrier to Success On The Internet!
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
SiteSell.com is pleased to announce the release of "The Netwriting Masters Course" in PDF format. This business course, along with five other unique Masters Courses, make up the "SiteSell University Series," which is geared to the needs of the online small business owner. All six Masters Courses are free.
"The Netwriting Masters Course" is designed to help small business owners write more effectively on their Web sites so as to increase income. However, it presents a radically different approach from other current books on this subject. Rather than concentrating solely on sales copy guidance, "The Netwriting Masters Course" starts from the premise that before any sales copy is written, an order taken, a credit card cleared or a product shipped, an online small business owner must first attract targeted, interested traffic through well-written, relevant information (i.e., content). The course presents the innovative 2-step approach of 'PREselling' and then 'selling.'
Dr. Ken Evoy, President of SiteSell.com and author of "The Netwriting Masters Course," explains the thinking behind this approach. "Offline, running a successful business is all about 'location, location, location.' Open a store in a highly trafficked area, merchandise well and sales are virtually guaranteed. Online, however, people aren't looking for your business -- they're searching for information and solutions. This is the fundamental reality of the Net that most small business owners do not recognize. To be successful online, you must first deliver what people and the Search Engines want and that is relevant, quality, information-packed content."
According to Dr. Evoy, this sets up a profitable chain reaction. "The Search Engines will reward you with higher ranking scores and lots of free targeted traffic. Your content will, in turn, build trust and credibility with your visitors, making them more receptive to your sales message. Your sales copy can then 'close the deal' on whatever your monetization model may be." Evoy sums up the course's 2-step process using a string analogy. "It's like pushing a string. You have to pull instead... pull targeted visitors into your site, PREsell them... then, and only then, sell."
"The Netwriting Masters Course" is offered at no charge and can be downloaded at http://netwriting.sitesell.com/.
SiteSell's affiliate force (known as "5 Pillar Affiliates") also uses "The Netwriting Masters Course" as a viral tool to promote "Site Build It!" ("SBI!"), SiteSell's flagship product. Dr. Evoy states that the 'success process' outlined in "The Netwriting Masters Course" is the same one used by thousands of SBI! users to build profitable, stable, small businesses on the Net. "It's only natural that "The Netwriting Masters Course" be used as a reselling tool for SBI!. It PREsells SBI! effectively and then SiteSell does the selling."
Site Build It! is an all-in-one Web site building, hosting and marketing software suite that provides all the information, strategies and tools needed to progress from brainstorming to content-development to traffic-building, through PREselling to multiple monetization sources.
