Ida Mae Boyd Explains the C-Panel

Alright! Here is another word that you hear when people start talking about Web Hosting and you say to yourself now what is that?

A C-Panel is a control panel that enables you to manage your website hosting services using a graphical user interface (GUI).
The C-Panel enable you to manage and setup your files and folders, email addresses, file transfers, domains, sub domains, databases, etc.

From your c-panel you have access to the Fantastico System which is a web application that can help you in building content management systems. Blogging applications like word press, etc.

The C-Panel has made website administration and development very easy, even to the newbie in the field of website development and web hosting.

Apart from being the web-based administrative control panel, the C-Panel helps in accessing vital features of overall website statistics with the web stats, FTP stats, AWStats, bandwidth usage, and visiting traffic.

C-Panel also helps you in creating and maintaining databases, uploading and downloading files and folders; editing, creating, and deleting files and folders; and many other important functions. The ease at which the website can be managed through the C-Panel is truly unbelievable and has made the website management really simple.

As you know the Internet is huge, nobody out there knows you. Right?
What I mean by that is to brand yourself so people will know who you are.

Would you buy from someone you do not know? Of course you would not. Right?

Your next question would be how to I do that Ida? Well, I am going to tell you.

Get a piece of paper and write down everything about yourself:

  • Introduce yourself
  • What are you good at?
  • What can you teach other people to do?
  • Do you know about search engine optimization?
  • Do you know how to write well?
  • Do you know how to get leads?
  • Do you know what traffic exchanges get good results
  • Do you know where to advertise at, etc?

Think about what you can offer someone.

For example:

I am very knowledgeable about marketing on the Internet so I can teach you how to market on the Internet.

It can be anything. The goal here is to get your name out there (Branding) and to build a business relationship with your reader. Of course the subject matter has to be something that the reader is interested in.

You want to attract people who are interest in things that they are interested in.

Start a newsletter or a blog. And post your writing to it regularly.

Remember to post:

  • Your Name
  • Telephone Number
  • E-Mail Address
  • Skype Id

You want people to contact you. Do not worry too much about people calling you; I have been posting my telephone number on the Web for many years.

I may have received one or two calls. But I do get a lot of E-Mail messages.

How I Became An Internet Marketer

As I stated on the Home Page of this blog, after I retired I needed something to do. I heard so much about how easy it would be to make money on the Internet.

I say to myself, I am pretty good with the computer and I knew how to search the Internet, etc. But I did not know anything about Internet Marketing. So I jumped right into signing up for all kind of business opportunities. You know the ones that tell you that you can “MAKE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS IN 30 days”.

I know one thing for sure; I didn’t make hundreds of dollars in 30 days if anything I spent hundreds of dollars in 30 days.
I was such a fool. All right enough of that.

Well! I did not give up. I really got busy learning about what is an Internet Marketer and what must I do to become one.

In my next post and the posts that will follow I will tell you all the things that I had to learn to become an Internet Marketer.
