'Getting Started Reports'
A preview of
what to expect
when Creating your own Web Presence
Thank you for visiting with us.
I wish we could be having this first conversation over a cup of
There's so much to talk about that it's a bit difficult to
know exactly where to start. So, let's make this our beginning , and
just talk... We'll probably have our cups refilled many, many times
before we come to the end of our discussion.
Actually, there isn't really a definable end to our subject
of 'Getting Started Creating Your Own Web Presence'.
We're going to talk about some things
to expect when starting an internet business. We're notgoing to start by re-inventing internet marketing,
e-commerce, or anything like that and
we are not presenting a course
in website construction or a course for internet sales tricks.
There are already many outstanding top quality such programs by super
successful marketers available for sale. Some of them can be
obtained through this RichardPresents.com website. There are even
outstanding top quality programs available at
particularly the Masters Courses by Dr. Ken Evoy, of
that can also be obtained through this website.
We are going to present many articles and reports that will help you
understand the importance of having a topic that you love; for which
you have a passion... and why you need to find out how many other
websites, newsletter, or ebooks already exist covering your topic.
We'll mention some of the tools we used to determine which are good
and not so good keywords, and how to select the best. Why, and even
how to optimize for search engines, and much more.
Here, in very broad terms, are some of the major challenges and
tasks awaiting you. This is by no means a complete list. Each of
these can have many sub-tasks. However, first things first:
Select a topic that really excites you,
(and you should know in advance that if you selected Internet Marketing,
you picked one of
the toughest fields to break into!)
Then find out who and how many others have the same interest; learn
if they are also promoting it on the internet and how they're doing
it. Create your website or newsletter, devise a memorable domain
name and register it. Select a web host, Publish, Advertise, Build
up your subscriber or visitor lists and Congratulate yourself for
getting this far.
As involved as all of that is, and regardless of how much time you
devote to it, even more daunting will be the time and effort you'll need
to spend on testing and retesting what you have published - and obtaining
interested, targeted visitors who will return again and again to your
website or newsletter.
There were many tools (software programs) that we researched,
evaluated and used. Some were easy to learn, some weren't. With a
little effort, we
were able to teach ourselves how to make them work for us.
The reports and articles that are in our Library all relate to
subjects that you will need to address as your program develops.
We're going to share everything we have experienced in building the
RichardPresents.com websites. We'll offer comments and our opinions
on any topic with which we are familiar in response to email
It has been an exciting experience creating this website; much more
than when we built other websites for clients and friends. During
the past 7 or 8 years, we have read the advice and followed the
methods recommended by dozens of the more successful internet
We have really learned a lot, and continue to read,
evaluate and experiment so that we can be as current as possible.
At this point in our life travels,
we want to share
as much as possible of what we have learned.
That is the purpose, and focus of
For anyone just starting their own internet business journey, trying
to create some extra income from their ideas and passions, or
just wondering how to start, be prepared to invest a lot of your
time. Invest it and you will get
results; don't, and you wont.
It is not impossible! We know of
successful sites built and
operated by 14 year olds, even some
built and operated by
older folks in their 80's, like us.
Just be sure that you have a purpose when you start, and measure
your success against it.
RichardPresents.com will help you make the best use of whatever time
you will be able to devote to your project, be it a website,
electronic newsletter, blog, ebook or eZine.
Throughout this website, we have concentrated on pointing you
toward one or two approaches to every important 'Getting Started'
task, hopefully saving some of your valuable time to spend on your
website or information product development
We have attempted to suggest as many 'no-cost' or low cost
solutions as we can honestly
recommend. These are based on our own experience, review,
and actual use.
You will probably have to invest some money.
We have not been extravagant in purchasing our tools and resource
material. So our suggestions, again based on experience, will
definitely be directed toward the most economical choices balanced
against high quality.
So again, Dear Visitor, welcome and thanks for joining with us. Our
mission is to make your efforts more fruitful.
This has been a very long discussion. Thank you for reading along
Our future messages will point you toward many articles and tools
that we feel should help you achieve your goals more quickly.
