Multi-Level Marketing Realities – Part 3
I now had several pages written in Front Page Express and they looked ok, so I bought some cheap web space from comevisit.com and uploaded my web pages using ftp. FTP stands for file transfer protocol and is a semi-simple way to move files, i.e. web pages, from one computer to another. So now I had the pages uploaded and I was testing them like crazy to make sure all the links worked, that there was no spelling errors, and that all the text made sense. I was happy with what I had created, which pushed me to learning and trying even more new things.
I then started learning how to promote the new site. Search engines, web directories, free for all links, classified advertisements, yellow page listings (on the internet), and however else I could promote the web pages for free. I had no desire whatsoever to pay for advertising at this time. I was actually just playing around trying new things. Many of the things I tried, I am ashamed to say, I told my wife about after the fact. Luckily, I did tell her about uploading the pages before we got our first call.
Within two weeks of uploading our pages and beginning to promote the webspace, which was at www.comevisit.com/smark, we received our first order. Holy crap! This actually worked!?! As I improved the pages and promoted them some more, we started getting a good trickle of calls for information and to place orders.
