Thanks Deb,
I appreciate your feedback on my site...had a feeling you weren't going to like my backgrounds. I was just trying to make it interesting...black on white is more professional though. I've heard different opinions about how to pitch a biz op on the web...some say to give just enough to get them interested, and do the rest over the phone. Some say to explain it outright and then you will only have to deal with pre-qualified people, or people that have ALREADY signed up under you. I'm just beginning to promote my site and I'm trying to do it on a limited budget, so I'm not sure how many hits I'm going to be able to produce...any hints would be appreciated. I figured if I only got a few hits I would want to get the on the phone to have a better chance of getting the facts out (and answering their questions). Of course I won't even get to do that if they don't want to leave their phone #. HELP!!! I don't know where to go from here.
Much appreciative...Bill
