Getting A Solid Internet Marketing Foundation

Think about what YOU are trying to accomplish… as a writer, a blogger, a social media marketer, an Internet marketer or as a seller/crafter/reseller online either through eBay, Etsy or any of the other online sales channels available to you. Consistency is the KEY to selling and branding yourself. But consistency isn’t just about what you look like OR your voice OR your topics of choice OR your “specialty”.

Be cautious when submitting your site to directories. There are thousands of shady directories out there that could potentially be harmful to your SEO.
