An Internet Marketing Tip List

Written by Ryan Ambrose  · September 19, 2008

A lot of the time, I talk about theory and best practices in internet marketing. So today, I’m going to do something completely different. I’m going to give you a tip list of specifics instead.

So, in no particular order, here are a few things you can do to make your life easier in internet

  • When selling digital files, you can force a window to pop and ask if the customer wants to save if you stick them in a “.zip” file. A “.pdf” file will open straight into a window if someone clicks on it, and you’ll have to tell you customers to right-click and “Save Target As” to get it onto their computer. A “.zip” file will allow them to left-click and go right to the “Do you want to save it” window.
  • When providing an email address for contacting you from a site, always make it an email address that ends with your site name, as opposed to a third party company like Hotmail, Yahoo, and so forth. It looks more professional that way. A common one is
  • If you have more than one web site, centralize your customer service. Point the “If you would like to contact me” links at that one site. Sites I’ve seen like this run scripts that allow people to open tickets and track responses to them (i.e. That way, you only have to go to one place for all your sites’ customer service issues.
  • If you want to sell ebooks, make them “.pdf” files. Making them something exotic that requires customers to buy extra software to read them (or the Windows-specific “.exe” ebook) will annoy your customers.
  • It doesn’t matter what you’re promoting, the WIIFM principle (What’s In It For Me) always applies. The customer wants to know how what you’re selling will benefit them, not the features or why they should help you out in some way.
  • Misspellings kill copy dead. They may seem like small things to you, but they will irritate your potential customers. Bad formatting and flow are just as bad, so edit before you publish your copy.

There are plenty of other simple, specific things you can do to benefit your business, but these are a good start.

    I hate exe ebooks! I am so glad the majority of internet marketers are creating their books in PDF now!

    I agree with you 100 percent… pdf ebooks beat .exe ebooks any day!

    Awesome advice!

    I definitely agree that it’s crucial to use the email address ending with your Website.

    It’s just more professional.

    And Yahoo! and Hotmail accounts aren’t taken very seriously.

    I usually use Yahoo and Gmail to talk to friends and acquaintances. But when things are strictly business, the official email has to be used.

    Nice post!

    90% of the ebooks are available in the PDF format and honestly, I also didn’t want to download those .exe ebooks if I have the choice…

    I agree with Wilson. If I can download PDF’s why should I download .exe ???!!
