2. It's a guarantee that you will be well known as the expert in your field.
3. It's less trouble.
You don't have to be a polished presenter to market your product effectively online. While speaking to groups in person does give you instant credibility, it takes a great deal of preparation time for your talk, your materials, and your wardrobe.
At your computer nobody cares if you're in your jeans and tee shirt. You don't have to run to the copy shop or printers. Your talk translates easily into a short article. It's far easier to write a how-to article that you can edit several times at your leisure, and send it immediately to over 400,000 opt-in ezines in many categories on the Web by just clicking a button.
4. It's non-threatening to the less brazen promoter.
You don't have to "sell" your product. Over the Internet, you won't meet sales resistance or rejection face-to-face. Even if you are good in public situations and can present yourself clearly and confidently, it's far easier to pitch yourself through the printed word.
People Online are ready customers when they find you. As your target market, they want useful information, and appreciate the instant delivery of your product as well as the ease of ordering it Online.

You don't have to schlep your product around with you. You don't have to keep track of inventory. You don't have to travel or find convenient parking. When you sell eProducts such as eBooks or eSpecial reports you don't have to wrap, stamp, or mail them.
Online marketing saves you time because you can do it all from one location.
Attending meetings or giving presentations take prep, driving in traffic, and several hours out of your day. You may not make a sale for months. At your computer, your messages shoot out to thousands instantly, allowing you to make sales every day, and you haven't even had to put on panty hose!

While you may not be a millionaire right away, it's probable, that in time, you could be one. The World-Wide Web audience awaits your unique creation and creativity. You'll meet and network with other savvy entrepreneurs, learn from their ezines and free content-filled Web sites in your field. Your targeted Web visitor is ready to buy every day.
