Unformatted text preview: generated us a very nice high figure income for the day. Ron: All right, guys, any other thoughts on getting traffic to your website. Jonathan: I would also have to throw in pay per click search engines, not just GoTo, there’s a, – actually there’s a great site called Lists, I don’t know, there’s probably about 120 of them right now. That and also the traditional search engines, which I would check out a site called It’s getting much, much more difficult to generate traffic off the search engines, off of the conventional ones, but I still think you need to give it a couple of days and do the very basics and that. And in terms of free traffic, those are probably one of the best sources if you can get a listing. Yanik: Yes. And getting into Yahoo, that’s one of the well, I guess it would be considered a search engine – more like a directory, and there is a way to get into there. We just had a site that we developed just for Yahoo and that brings in like 1,000 visitors per day now. Jonathan: Wow.

I have to say that getting traffic is easy, if you can make the sale when they get there. Ron: Right. Amen. Ted: It’s the key to making money on the web is working on the sales process, or tens of thousands of people who will generate traffic for you if you can make money when they get to your site. Ron: So what you’re saying is it’s easy to get the traffic coming, but if they’re not buying anything that’s your fault. Terry: That’s where you need to spend the majority of your worktime. And also is making sure that they’re buying something when they get there. Ron: Guys, do you favor having multiple websites, or having multiple products on one website? Jonathan: I would have to say – Ron: And this is Jonathan talking? J...
