You can implement a virtual stock market with say 20 dummy companies. The prices of the share will depend on the no. Of users buying/selling

Betty asks…

How to get more traffic to my website? ?

I’m new on the online business thing and need to market and drive people to my website but need the best way with out costing an ARM and leg ….there are people who think its a scam but I’ve done my research and am making money but would like to make more

bizzyhom answers:

It’s not a scam, and NEVER EVER EVER listen to those dummies!

Other people are too lazy to make this work, so they will tell you that you are wasting your time. Don’t ever give up, and don’t listen to stupid people who think that you need to have a “real job” to make it in life.

People with “real jobs” are miserable, and they are not in control of their life!

Now…to get more traffic.

Do you visit forums? If you don’t, then start! Signatures at the bottom of forum posts are actually a great way to get a bit of extra traffic to a website…just make sure not to SPAM and be annoying with it.

Don’t know how to find a forum for a niche? Here’s a HUGE list of message boards and forums: http://www.big-boards.com/

Are you using Facebook pages and Twitter? If not, start! You can get a lot of traffic if you use social media correctly….a ton of it!

You can also do SEO of course, but be careful. When you rely on search engines like Google to bring you traffic, you get screwed when they change their algorithm….so never leave it up to them more than possible.

Diversify and you will find traffic!

Charles asks…

My Facebook user profile has the name I want for my Facebook company page?

I just came in as this company’s marketing coordinator. They have this silly setup where a dummy account is the admin for our company page. The dummy account is invisible to the public and has no friends. The dummy profile has the same name as our page. That is foolish, but that is not my question. before I came in, someone set the dummy page url to be the url I want for our company page. so when you type in facebook.com/ourcompanyname, the user profile comes up instead of our company page. I cannot change the url for the company to the desired address because it is taken by our user profile. It says I only get one change. Is there a way to just not have a username for our profile so that it is just random numbers like usual? Am I wrong and because the user profile has the company name so does our company page? I doubt that, but if so, is there a way I can make it so our company page pops up instead of the user profile?

Thanks in advance!
I just changed the url of the dummy profile. It now says that that url is not available when I try to set it for the company page. Maybe there is just a lag? Or did i just throw away that url?

bizzyhom answers:

Have you tried changing the username/url of the dummy account, then change the url of the vanity page?

Edit: I believe it’s held for a couple of weeks based on another site. I’d try again after some time has passed. I added the URL where it’s talked about to the source. It’s probably a protection from some scammer stealing your URL.

Ruth asks…

How can make more people know my website?

i am fashion designer . i am selling clothes on facebook . but how can make more people know my ‘ girl rock fashion group ‘ without pay money for AD and expanding more customers….need help , please ! thanks

bizzyhom answers:

There are a few ways you can go about it. Now that you apparently have your website up and running you’re asking about getting traffic to your website correct?

One, you can contact Google, Yahoo or any other popular search engine and ask them about their rates. If you have the money to do that then they can set that up to for you. How much is it? It depends. I can’t tell you if it’s expensive or not because I don’t know your budget.

2nd, you can also subscribe to one of these SEO services (Search Engine Optimization) where you pay a monthly fee (usually a few hundred dollars per month or more) and they work on getting local people to your website. Do your homework on that first. There are many fly-by-night SEO companies and some of them are shams.

3rd., you can take the guerilla marketing approach that will help deliver the organic route, meaning you do everything yourself to promote it without the aid of the costly shortcuts mentioned. It’s a lot more work and it’s all done basically through word-of-mouth, flyers, business cards etc. And it’s a slower process.

There is also a book “Facebook Marketing for Dummies” (not to imply that YOU are one!) that gives good tips on how to promote you Facebook business if you want to take the time out to find at it your local library.

Nancy asks…

Should I get a Sidekick Slide or a RAZR 2?

I text the average amount for an 18 year old & I can carry on average an hour and a half phone conversation. I currently have a slider phone with a music player & 2.0 Megapixel Camera. What do you think would be an appropiate T-Mobile upgrade?

Thanks for your help!

FYI: I can’t afford a Sidekick LX

bizzyhom answers:

The sidekick slide is not the best option. I will explain why.

Whenever the Sidekick is mentioned, the phrases “big in the States” and “Paris Hilton” inevitably follow. But, despite several attempts by T-Mobile to propel the Danger-designed device into the mainstream, it has so far failed to get Britain’s youth ditching their Nokias and Walkman phones en masse.

The Slide is the first of the series to be made by Motorola rather than Sharp. It’s 25 per cent smaller than the previous models, and slimmer too – addressing one of the most obvious turn-offs of its too-chunky predecessors. It still has the Sidekick-style Qwerty keypad hidden under a moving 2.4in, 320 x 240 pixel (QVGA) display, though this time the screen simply slides up rather than slide-and-swivelling into place.

T-Mobile’s Sidekick Slide: 25 per cent smaller than previous models

The Slide may be smaller and more compact than the handbag-sagging 182g Sidekick 3, but it’s still no slimline pocket-pleaser. It measures 117 x 61 x 10mm and weighs around 156g, so has the size and feel of a PDA rather than a phone.

The device is designed as a gadget for young people to stay in touch via email and IM as they zip around town, surfing and networking as they go. The Qwerty keypad is a vital part of the Slide’s easy email, instant messaging and texting functionality, and also lends a hand to browsing on the device’s big-ish screen. But the Sidekick isn’t meant to be a business or techie messaging device

Previous Sidekicks have been criticised on this side of the Atlantic for offering dated features. The Slide isn’t exactly cutting-edge either. It’s not a 3G device, relying on quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge connectivity. It does have a music player – supporting multiple file formats this time around, including MP3, AAC and WMA files included – and a hot-swappable Micro SD memory card slot. But the camera is a 1.3-megapixel snapper – real entry-level stuff in late 2007 – which surprisingly doesn’t even do video recording. We suspect the funky, Facebook-savvy target audience might just notice these shortcomings…
