Get Real and Start Running a membership Website

Currently, I am designing my own membership website. The latest hosting companies have provided me with all the right tools to get through loopholes and design one of the top websites online. Make no mistake, it took me years of practice, designing, and writing SEO content for other businesses to get where I am now. In other words, running a membership website is not for clowns. You have to get real to start running a membership website. If you want to see those big dollar signs dancing in front your eyes, then now is the time to get real, informed, and stop that damn clowning around.

We have a few solutions for starting a membership website. First, you can start and maintain a membership website by using special software programs. Alternatively, you can take another route. Website memberships do not require software, unless you lack skills to build, design, write, link, connect, create blogs, member interactive boards, and all that other junk that goes on the top of the line websites.

Get out of Dodge because maintaining and running a membership website is a daily task. You will sweat, cry, laugh, cuss, and make funny faces throughout the process. The basic membership website is your one-stop destination for all software title training courses, anytime from anywhere, right at your own web browser, yet you need skills, knowledge, and content. We discuss software – which you can find MEMBERSTAR, EBIZ or other software online. Once you get your membership website up and running, find the right software, and designers, then you will need to learn some Internet marketing. Internet marketing is a drawn out process that has stumped people over the years. People tried the red, white, and black hat solutions and turned out with negative results. They did something wrong! You can bet, the Internet goonies did something wrong in their marketing strategies. Marketing to the members of a free, running membership website is absolutely – something everyone wants. Goonies and all!

The thing to do
What to do, what to do? The thing to do is to visit the World Wide Web of Anarchy. Personally, on the www.Pandemonium.madnessoutofcontrol.com pages you will find all sorts of information to help you understand more about the membership websites. If you are ready to get real, here is the deal…to start running a membership website, you will need tools, toolbox, plans (Number one dude), html basic writing skills, content writing skills, and a good stiff drink if you lack patience. You have several types of websites to consider in the membership linage of design. Some membership websites online give their customers the ability to download Kill Bill. This is your nicer membership websites. At least the creators think of their customers. You have the bulky E-Book Stores and AMPS, which is the membership sites that offer useful utilities for users who enjoy earning money through the E-commerce affiliate programs.  These are nice fellers also. They at least give their customers the chance to earn some of the money back they spend at the membership website.

Membership websites when designed, maintained, and properly managed can bring in L.O.A.D.S. of generous revenue. These kinds of sites make it possible to pay your customers or members a piece of the pie. Membership websites that offer the community spectacular information without causing the community to get cold sores, is one of the websites that people enjoy the most. You have some insurance to deliver. When a customer comes to your website and crashes into some heavy web content, you better be prepared to pay for the damages. Your customer will run like a madman who just been cussed out by 20 women at the general store. When your customers run, they run to friends and family, and even strangers (the ones their momma warned them about) and tell them what type of uninsured, Goony is running a membership website out of control.

If you do not have any experience in running a membership website, let alone building the site – wake up! Go online and check out some of the online training resources for managers and training directors that cover all sorts of firms who think they can successfully run a membership website. Get Real!

Membership Sites are a Non Traditional Way of Marketing

Have you ever thought of starting a membership site? Do you know what a membership site is? Membership sites target a certain market of people that either look for certain products or certain information. So if lets say you collect coins and you start a membership site with information that only pertains to coin collectors, and people can only access the information on your site by joining and becoming a member. On top of that the information you have on your site is not readily available for free on the Internet or it is difficult to find on the Internet, then this is a viable membership site.
Why are People Interested in Membership Sites?
You offer something a certain group of people want or need, Lets take as an example the coin collector again; on your site you can offer information on different coins, or a newsletter about coin collecting, this creates a rapport between you and your readers. They see you as the authority and go to your site to look information up because it is a lot more convenient than having to look in many different sites, and never come up with the information they want. As an Internet marketer, you can take advantage of this rapport and create a money-making industry for yourself.
Think about it, you have your members confidence and you can sell them products, eBooks, information or sell ad space to other marketers, use affiliate marketing and sell products that relate to your site, you can even charge a fee for your membership, or a higher version of your site, giving the reader even more needed information.
How Much Can you make from a Membership Site?
Lets imagine you charge a membership fee of $9.00 for a three month membership, and lets say you get one new member a day for three months, you should have 100 members, if those members renew that means you get $900 a month, plus more as you grow. Now imagine if you had three other sites that did the same thing. You would make over $3000 a month, every month.
What Types of Sites Make great Membership Sites?
Most sites on the Internet are selling something. They sell real estate, vitamins, entertainment, physical products, but it is usually something that they are selling, so look for a product that is non marketing, and something that is not that common and that is where your opportunity lies. There are all kinds of membership sites, sites that have to do with hobbies, fitness, dieting, etc, etc.
Membership sites appeal to every target market out there. There are millions of people with millions of interests and they are looking for sites that fill their needs. Sure there are people that want to share videos or music, but there are also people that want to share craft ideas, or child rearing techniques or want to know about places to go on vacation and membership sites can be created for all of these interests. Its just a matter of finding the right niche.
How to Find the Right Niche?
Ok, this is the hardest part in creating a membership site. It requires some creativity, some knowledge and a lot of research, and we are not just talking about sitting for an hour and doing a quick, search on the Internet. We are talking some heavy duty thinking about your interests and the ability of others that are interested in the same things to find the right information on the Internet.
Once you have thought about a couple of options, then you can start keyword searches to find out how many other people are interested in the area you have thought about, and keep looking until you hit on the right market. Your market should be found first, before you even start looking for your project.
Let's recap! We all know that the Internet can potentially produce money. We have heard it everywhere, in the news, on TV, on the Internet.  The problem is how do we go about tapping into this great resource? One of the answers to that question is by running a membership site, which will either produce revenue from membership cost or through affiliate marketing or product marketing. As our membership grows, so will our revenue. Membership sites are not as popular as regular marketing sites, so there is a lot of room to grow in the industry.
In essence, membership sites have very few if any drawbacks and a whole lot of advantages.

Making Money with Articles: Banner Advertisements

When you are trying to make money off of the articles on your website, it is important to effectively promote your site so that you will attract customers and they can see just what a good, quality site you have. There are several ways so market and promote your website, one of them being though banner advertisements.

What Banner Ads Can Do For You

Banner ads can help bring visitors from others sites to your own. Although monthly fees can be expensive to advertise on high traffic sites, in the end it may be cheaper and/or a faster way to start seeing significant revenue from your website efforts, rather than waiting for SEO techniques to bring your own site to the top of search engine results. Aside from paying to advertise on someone else's site, there are also free banner exchanges to choose from. We will look at the pros and cons of each banner advertising method below.

Free Banner Exchanges

Free banner exchanges are when you and other sites exchange each others banners. Their banner will go on your site and your banner will go one their site. Although this option is free, there are two main problems with it. First, if you want your banner on a significant number of sites, it will mean cluttering your own site up with these banners. This could even shot you in the foot if you run an affiliate website because, instead of clicking on your affiliate links, your visitors may be clicking on your banner exchange links. Secondly, you have to be really careful about the types of sites that you exchange banners with. Some sites like to gather a lot of banners so that they can be a directory or portal site and not have to have any real content. These "banner farms" or "link farms" will do nothing positive for your site and, in the meantime, you will be bringing them potential traffic.

Paid Banner Ads

As we saw above, paid banner ads cost money, but they will eventually pay off if you choose the right ones. You need to ensure that the site produces the amount of traffic that they say and that they have your ad placed in a way that invites visitors to click without being too pushy. You also want to choose a site that does not house too many other banners on the same page as yours or that there are no competitor links on the same page.

All in all, banner ads can end up being profitable for you site if you go about it the right way. If you do decide to check out banner advertisement as a marketing avenue, be sure to keep the above tips in mind.

Making Money with Articles: Finding a Writer

Finding the right freelance writer to produce your revenue generating articles can take a bit of time, however, if you find one that can easily take on another regular client and the two of you work well together, then that one difficult search will turn into a lot of profitable articles.

When you start your search, you may want to begin with a very small group of articles, just in case you happen too hook up with a writer that you are less than thrilled with. It is important to keep in mind that there are several different types of writing and each writer might be highly skilled in one area, yet lack in another. For example, there is creative/fiction writing, biographical writing, news writing, general informational article writing, critical writing, copy-writing, poem/verse writing, technical writing, medical writing, essay/report writing, and sports writing. Although a writer may be highly skilled in one area, many freelance writers spread themselves out into others areas as well. So, it is critical that the writer you choose can produce the type of content that you need.

To find a freelance writer, you can look at various freelancing websites that will allow you to post the specification of your project and your budget.

From there, writers will make bids on your project and provide you with writing samples so that you can get an idea of their skill level. Make sure that you choose a writer who gives you a sample of the type of article that you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for a copy-writer, do not hire someone who only sent you a sports writing sample. He or she may be an outstanding sports writer, but copy-writing is about selling (a product, service, or yourself) to your website visitors.

In conclusion, the more you are willing to pay per article, the more bids you will get from quality writers who know how to entertain and inform your website visitors so that they keep coming back for more. Writers know that you will eventually make a ton of money off of each article or content piece. So although $30 or more for a 500 word article may seem like a lot, when you think about the service they are providing you and the time and effort that they put into your piece, then you will realize that it really is not a lot for that one article. If you pay for quality, you will be amazed at how much you will eventually make off of your articles.

Project Management of a Global Team

The world is getting smaller. Well, it isn't physically getting smaller but that is one way of saying that global communications have become so fast paced that the world is really one community in a lot of ways. With the advent of the internet, email, instant messaging and VOIP, it is entirely possible to do business with trading partners around the globe without ever leaving your office.

For many businesses who are on the cutting edge of new business paradigms, the concept of a geographically isolated business is becoming obsolete. It is entirely possible to put together a business consortium or a project team made of subject matter experts spread across all time zones and from around the world. In fact, this kind of decentralized management of business projects is becoming more of the norm than the exception in the twenty first century business environment.

So just as those in marketing, product development and investments have already learned how to maximize a project team that is separated by hundreds or thousands of miles, the project manager must also adapt the project management methodology to accommodate a similar approach to getting business done.

Conventional project management is a systematic approach to taking a project from scope to implementation that has proven successful in thousands of companies. We have no reason to abandon this well developed methodology. But as new business paradigms come to play, we have to adapt even a standard methodology like project management to fit the way business is done in this century.

Communications is the key to any successful project. This is the challenge of utilizing a team from across a great geographical divide. It is entirely possible you may execute the entire project with team members you never see. So to facilitate frequent and up to date communications, we must exploit the technology we have at our disposal such as…

§ Blogs, wiccis and shared working environments. Group sharing environments on the web are becoming more and more common. By setting up a tool set on line in which team members can post status reports, leave emails, update the project management software, file expense reports and stay in touch with each other, you facilitate the kind of communication that keeps the team moving forward successfully. Blogs, private message boards and wiccis are also excellent means by which an ongoing "conversation" can be carried out between team members that anyone can check into and get caught up with the content of what has been done and what is being planned for the project.

§ Controlled email trees. As the project manager, email is an obvious way to quickly stay in touch with team members. However, it can get chaotic trying to keep up on fast moving email trees. That may be a good reason to trap all emails trees within your online project management software so the contributions of everyone on the team can be captured for further review.

§ IM staff meetings. IM can be expanded so it doesn't just bring in two participants. You can schedule your weekly staff meetings using an IM conference room and capture the entire proceedings in the IM log thus assuring yourself that nothing that was said will "fall through the cracks.

By becoming adept at using cyberspace as the primary "location" of your project team's interaction, you can literally create a team of highly specialized talent that can be located from anywhere in the world. This vastly expands your ability to tap the best minds for your work and to streamline the project management process. It will take time to get used to and there will be some missteps along the way. But if you can conquer global team management using internet tools, it will be a valuable skill for successfully executing global projects for your business.


Creating Traffic

Perhaps you have followed the trend in business to create an internet web site for your business that can be used to supplement your marketing efforts. If so, you have joined the momentum to create a corresponding "place" in cyberspace that can be used to reach customers online. The need for such an internet presence is entirely market driven. Internet sales have soared, particularly in certain market segments and more and more, the first place people go to in order to learn about your business is the internet. If they find a well designed web site that is full of features, that works fast and draws them in, that can be a tremendous tool for promoting your business.

When you set up a marketing tool outside of cyberspace, the first concern is how will that new marketing effort get noticed. So we are drawn to places where there is already an active traffic of people who would qualify as our customers. That may mean putting up a billboard where it will be seen by people going to work. That target audience may be the best population to respond to your message. Or if your business appeals to youth, advertising on MTV or on popular radio stations is a natural place to put your marketing money because the traffic is already there.

We have to approach the internet differently. Yes, the traffic is already there but we have to enter the world of cyberspace marketing with a different kind of strategy so we can reach the customers who are traveling certain "internet roads" and make sure those roads lead to our web site.

There is whole a cottage industry that has sprung up around the need for knowledgeable internet marketing gurus. And, yes, it's a good idea to use their talents to make sure the search engines put your web site in front of the right kind of client or customer. These talented internet geeks can put your business web site into the flow of web surfers so you get your fair share of that traffic.

That said, you don't have to wait for the internet marketing experts to make your web site more successful. If the business has made the effort to put that web site up, you want to see it start to pay off right away. That is why you should consider some creative ways to drive people to your web site from your traditional markets thus educating your current customers, clients and partners about the site. Ways to do that include…

§ Promote the web site at the retail level. Some creative signage at your retail locations can create some momentum and interest in customers to go see your exciting new web site.

§ Put the link on all correspondence. If you have flyers, a magazine or other current means of communications, your URL should always be listed there. Add your URL to your email signature and on business cards and all other forms of communication so your community of clients, customers and partners get used to associating that web site with you as much as they do your business name.

§ Create excitement. It is easy to operate a business contest from your retail sites that drives people to the web site for clues or to claim their winnings. That kind of momentum can create huge surges of traffic through your web site with the corresponding surge of sales and leads.

The modern customer or client is used to seeing the promotion of a web site included with other forms of promotion and advertising. You are not "assaulting" your customer base with this information. If anything, when your audience sees that the business has burst into the cyberspace world in a big way, they will be thrilled and as likely to respond with, "It's about time.".

You know how much you depend on the internet to keep you informed about areas of interest and about businesses you like to patronize. So you can see that not only putting up a good web site but letting people know that it is there and that there are big things there for them to enjoy is doing them a favor as much as it is creating new marketing opportunities for your business.

Business law Advisor-justification of criminal penalties for violations of Corporate Governance


1. Corporate governance concerns the separation of ownership and control results when a company is publicly traded and therefore has too many owners who cannot control all companies at a time, and as such, they hire professional Managers to do so. Was defined, as follows:
“The system through which those involved in the management of the company are held accountable for their performance, with the objective of ensuring that they adhere to the objectives fixed in the company”.

It is generally accepted that the law plays a key role in corporate governance particularly in the provision of shareholder protection and reduction of expropriation that is the result of the separation of ownership and control. However, the importance of the role of criminal law in enforcing good corporate governance there are more than one view. Effectiveness of criminal sanctions in deterring violations of corporate governance.

2. in order to discourage unwanted behavior, criminal law has traditionally used such penalties of imprisonment, fines and the stigma of criminality. While it’s been debated in general the effectiveness of such sanctions in the criminal law, it has been persuasively argued that they may actually deter corporate crime. Because the companies are primarily useful for institutions choosing to break the law, only if it is profitable. Profit maximization decisions closely rely on probability and the amount of potential profit, then a company decision to violate the criminal law would generally include a calculation of the probability of prosecution and probable severity of any punishment. These costs high enough should eliminate the potential benefit of illegal business and, therefore, any incentive to engage in such activity.

Improper business conduct 2.1 might be deterred by applying criminal sanctions for the same company or its agents and employees. A company cannot, obviously, be imprisoned, but there may be the stigma of criminal label attached to it. This stigma could affect company behaviour if led to decreased profits.

2.2. a system of fines imposed on companies even properly should discourage corporate wrongdoing as fines are large enough to force the companies to disgorge any advantage gained by the infringing conduct.

2.3 you can deter misbehavior company by applying criminal sanctions to individuals in your organization. Since entrepreneurs fear the stigma of criminality for personal and economic reasons, such sanctions could be effective deterrents. In fact, the fear of criminal prosecution or investigation, even if there is no conviction, may actually discourage company officials.

Corporate 2.4 civil penalties and civil penalties also individual will be inadequate When an individual is motivated to break the law by reasons other than simply business. He may ask, for example, to improve his position within the company or even to use his position to violate a law that he believes is unfair. Therefore, any additional deterrent that’s needed to complete a system of civil fines could only be achieved by imposing penalties on such reprehensible behavior by individuals.

criminal law also authorizes 2.5 other law-abiding individuals-if the Board of Directors, managers and other professionals-to stand up to well-meaning colleagues or not, at a minimum, to resist with guilt.

2.6 survival and long-term viability of the company is no longer a private interest that only affects those who deal with the corporation at a primary level, for example, investors, but also public interest affecting the wellbeing of stakeholders such as employees, which provides jobs and pensions. The Government, therefore, has a responsibility to ensure that employees, as well as other members of society are protected from fraudulent acts of the managers who are not acting in the interests of the company. The success of the company is, therefore, a public interest which, to a certain extent, should be protected through State regulation.

2.7 Research confirmed that penal sanctions are the only mechanism able to protect investors from wide-scale fraud or theft. Every country uses harsh penalties to deal with Enron and Parmalat.
