Hello Joel and StartupNewsletter Members,
Just when I thought that I was finally going to make sales with
Mother`s day being the second biggest holiday that I was told.
That`s when I fell into a really bad slump! I coundn`t understand
why no sales. Traffic was good, everyday each catergory was
getting traffic yet still no sales. That is when I did a reality check. I had my web site evaluated and all they said I need
more key words. Call it intuision or a gut feeling I sense there
is something wrong with this picture. I remember reading an
article that some companies that invest into your web site,
they really don`t want to see you making money. I will explain!
Oct. 05th, 2005 I have been paying (USA card services) 129.
00 dollars each month. Without having someone go over the
contract, I signed up. 48 month contract paying 129.00 each
month being on a fix income because I am disabled started to
take it`s toll on me. It was either making sales or losing my
web site and all the hard work that I put into it. Back in Dec. 12th, 2005 I purchased a 2 year SSL Turbo certificate for
my web site. I never had it installed. Reason my web hosting
company (that USA card services paid for a year) told me
my web site was secure. Now believing that my web site
was secure and having my web site evaluated professionally
(USA card services paid) I never question the issue.
Until I read the 10 fastest reasons on how to lose customers.
The first reason is make sure that your web site is secure!
Immediately I called Go Daddy and explain to them what`s
been going on and if I could install the certificate back in Dec.
(they are one of the sweetest and honest companies I know)
first thing they said to me when they went over my web site,
do you know your web site is not secure? I broke down in
tears. All these months where I might of been making a profit
instead I was falling into dept. Oh did I became furious!
So I called my web hosting company and explained that I
want them to install my SSL Turbo certificate. I am still waiting
to have it installed which cost 50.00 dollars. All of a sudden
alight went off in my head and I asked myself why would
companies not want you to profit. The answer that came to
me was can you imagine all the people who are paying
129.00 a month to have their own business created for them,
with all the tools they need and if they can`t make their
payment good bye web site, good bye your online store! Oh
my can you imagine all the online businesses they must have?
For the newcomer if you ever get a phone call from a smooth
talker salesman and they mention Morgan Chase Bank would
like to invest 5.000 dollars so you can be your own boss,
please don`t sign any contracts! My question how can I get
out of this contract? Let`s end on a good note. I received an
e-mail and was told that I have the most wonderful web site.
That made it all worthwhile.
