The UK has Europe's most active online population, according to new data from online measuring agency comScore.

Every day, websites attract 21.8 million UK visitors, with Brits logging onto the internet 21 days every month, for an average 34.4 hours per month - all the highest figures in the continent.

ComScore's World Metrix study shows 122 million Europeans aged over 15 were online on a selected day in April, against 114 million Americans.

On average, Europeans used the net 16.5 days every month, spending 24 hours per month viewing some 2,662 web pages.

But, whilst UK users top the league  in use of the internet, other nations are ahead on connectivity. Holland and Sweden boast 68 percent and  83 percent penetration respectively while Germany has the largest online population at 32.6 million people over 15 years of age.

And Swedes are more voracious than any other nationality, viewing a staggering 4,019 pages every month - that's 51 percent above the continental average.

Those in Russia, Austria, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, Belgium and Finland all use the net for fewer days per month than the European average.

what does it take to build a billion dollar business?A hundred million dollars or a good idea and a few dollas?Over the years you would discover that some of the world's most succesful businesses,products, emblems and brands all started small buthave now become icons and emblems of success.They are now pacesetters e.g McDonalds, coca-cola etc..But the question is how big can one get when starting from a small beginning?
Is it possible for you to make the "mega bucks" theses companies are making?
Is it possible for you to outshine theses so-called big names?(or giant corporations)
The answer lies within you but for me the answer is YES.For i know one thing, "Nothing Is Impossible," especially with the help of the one big market, the meeting place, the connecting-connector, THE INTERNET.
Do you know that the internet has created more millionaires and billionaires in the past decadfe than was seemed possible in history.It has brough a cashflow of financial success and created conventional business men and women and smarter enterpreneurs.It has become the world's largest investing and finance bank that give returns(even with the presence of scam).You can sit at home and travel beyond your shores,making money and watching your finance grow,still balancing the demands of public service,family life oor religious commitment.
But as many are the people who are making money from the internet,there are also many who are notans still seek help on how to do that.Many are scared because of a lot of scam.( which is for real.)
You see a lot of people online today are in the wrong position and this is because many do not understand at all anything about the "internet cashflow."You should know that there are 3 sides to the internet.You are either a Producer, a Supplier or a Consumer.Nw this sounds silly but it's the blatant truth.Sometimes you cold be a consumer turned supplier and making more money than the producer or sometimes you could be a consumer turned producer, but whichever you are you have to start from one spot.But i must tell you that as a beginner , to enjoy the internet cashflow,you canot be what over 90% of internet usersa are and that is Consumers.You cannot enjoy the internet cashflow just being a consumer all the time, you need to load your position into a cash pumping statusYou need to take a stand.Yo need to get back money on what you are spending on.You need to increase your knowledge.You need to meet with people all oer the world, business minded people.Do you know that birds of a feather flock together?If you keep meeting, chating and discussing with consumers you will always end up being a consumer. You know what they say"if you lie with dogs, yo will rise with fleas."
So how can you turn around from being a consumer to a supplier or producer?I suggest first that you become a supplier,(that is be the bridge that connects the producer and consumer)make some cash, re-invest and gradually before you know it you would have become a producer.So how do yu become a supplier?The best way is Networking(Network Marketing).One would say this sounds silly, how does networking concern or affect being a supplier? The answer is a lot.On the internet today,you would come across so many consumer related goods and products put into the market by producers.They are looking for buyers and what's more they will pay huge comissions with anyone who assists with the sales.If yo look through so many producer sites, you wold see so many affiliate products.Now how do you make the mega bucks.Many of these sites would offer help to advertise the products for you to sell for them, now think...if their adverts were truly working, would they need you at all?Also you would see on the internet a lot of advertising sites with promises to help you advertise your products, now think the truth is this, many of these advertising sites are eitherr busy taking counts of the customers who have paid for services or busy beautifying their sites.Ask yourself....How many sites that claim to help yo advertise your products and bring in a lot of traffic to your websites, have actually lived up to their words and expectations,instead they are busy, sending you more adverts of their own services.(which many still fall victim of by purchasing and still remain where they are).Can you count how much you have lost, paying for advert bookings and advertisement , with little ot no result? How many advert sites have given you e-mail list that turned out to e ghost mails? Can you calculate the amount of time you have wated on viral marketing ands other strategies?
So what is the answer?How do yu get across to consumers to sell these products that you have?How do you get people to visit your website? how do you get real names and real e-mail addresses?How do you build a consumer purchasing downline or list?
Well i'll let you in on my marketing strategies,that has raked in million of dollars for me and is still doing so as at now.It is called "D M A"-the Dumb Marketer Approach.Funny as it sounds it really works.
There are 5 steps to follow to ake your DMA a successful one.Believe me if you folow these steps in the next 30 days you will defitely be a millionaire.
Choose your positon and focus on it.You have to decide to stop being a have to decide to stop spending so much money on the net, giving away your money with little or no returns.Now choosing a positon(of a supplier)shows that you are ready to make money and whatever you spend online is an investment, that should yield and grow and give huge returns (ROI)This shows also that you are reday to make money form the producers.Now focus on this positon for the next 30 days.
Now you will know that by just choosing a postio and focusing on it , will not produce results, unless you activate it into a cash pumping status.Now to activate you have to ask youreself carefully, what can i supply to people?To help you out, you have to ask yourself, what do i have a passion for?For it is what you have a passion for that you will be able to easily and strongly get across to your consumer or buyers.Then by choosing a product to sell, make sure that the product have "back-ends" or freebies(though it is not so neccessary but it helps).You don't need to get too many stuffs to sell, remember focus.
Join a MLM network.Now this sounds really absurd,but this is the foundation of your marketing success.Now not just any MLM, but a vey good one, i recommend Getawayclub,see Now a lot of questions are coming to mind right now....
Why should i join a MLM?These MLM cost money! It's big money!They will expect you to build a downline?
Now i will let you in on a secret.Yes these MLM cost money, they sound expensive,but remeber i said earlier it is time for you to begin to invest your money and get returns on your investment(ROI)Now $199 is wht it cost to join getawayclub, quite a lot of money, yes, but guess what?you are going to make one thousnad of that in a week!So listen up... i chose getawayclub because the board is good and because i have tried it and it really works.NOw after you have signed up this site gives you access to other members on the board, no matter who they are or where they are from.this is where your marketing begins.First the site has a good facility that enable yo send a message to any member.Secondly it has another facility that allows you to navigate through boards, different usernames and positions.These 2 facility are you weapon.The navigator and the message center.Now you know that as a MLM people from all over the worl have joined and for $199,they will definitely be ready and have enough money to purchase any product you bring to them.Now the advantage is this, you have real people within this network already there,they have e-mail addresses, they have accounts,you have access to them and they have cash.!Remember they afforded a $199 MLMso they will definitely be ready to purchase your product see ref:
NOw this is very improtant.Truly i have seen over time many great and wonderful products ruinrd by very poor marketing plans,such that these products can't just get to their end-users.You have to know this, no matter how valuable, how sweet or how interesting what you hjave to offer is, until you you get your marketing right, you will still not make money from it.You have to have a good marketing plan and thisd i will outline for you here because this is where the money $$$$$ comes.
First, you have joined the getawayclub(see you know that in this MLM there are 4 boards, name ly the Bronze, the Silver, the Gold and the Platinum.NOw the Bronze board pays$100 to users who have circled out , then you advance to the silver board, the Silver board pays $300, then you proceed to the gold board, which pays you $3000, where you proceed to the platinum board that pys $17,000.NOW THAT you are now a member you wil have access to navigate through the boards and send messages.
Secondlyfocus on the gold and platinum boards first.Did you ask why?Yes , because these lads have been paid some good money they did not really work for.Especially in the p;atinum board.Those in the platinum boardalready have $3400 in their getaway account and some who have al;ready circled out before have $20,400 or more(because in getawayclub, when a member cirlces out of the paltinum board he or she is re-registered and placed to egin again to begin from the platinum boardand keeps earning $17,000 over and over again)Now for the gold board,the lads ther have already been paid $400 each and are gladly expecting $3000, (which will surely come)so they will be able to afford,(knowing that $3000 is coming their way).
Thirdly,after navigating through the boards, now make a list of about 200 users or usernames from both gold and platinum boards,(concentrating more on the platinum boards).There over 200,000 usernames in getawayclub.
Fourth,after making the list now go to your message centre and send them messages.Please note that,the messages you send should not contain anypersonal e-mail addresses,products or websites.You don't have to bump into their faces like you are selling insurance.They should be plain.(they could be nessages just rying to know eachother on friendlyu terms.)Thenafter about 3 days, send another message this time putting your e-mail address only for personal contact.
Fifth,now guess what!you now have 200 pesonal e-mails of rich people.You are now friends to 200 rich people.Now use the friendship platform which you have establishedto reply to their personal e-mails(still on friendship terms)
Lastly,you can reply again, this time telling them of your products and services and leading them to your site.Guess what?They will gladly go, because now they do not see you as a usiness person who jst want to sell his or her product, but they see you as a friend.NOw thse people have already made alotr of money from the MLM network(over $3000 and above)so they will be able and ready to purchase goods worth $1000 .Believe me i tell you.
Now when 200 people purchase items, goods or services form you worth $1000 each every week, in a week you you make $200,000 and in a month $800,000.This is a sure way to market and make huge profits and ROI.
DANGERS:It is so easy to e carried away by the euphoria of knowing that you are maing huge profits, that you forget to keepthe foundation and friendship with your client running.Do not forget to continue to be firendly with them.
Do not concentrate solely on business or purchased items when you mai.Also do nt forget that the boards in the getawayclub club breaks everyday,so there are new people being paid,also e vigilant and observe, so you can continue to repeat and exlode in $$$$$$$$.
