This article is going to be a little different than my other articles, in that it will be dealing with the person to person contact on the net. I would like to dedicate this article to all the business people who are so helpful and willing to go the extra mile to help out newbies and "oldies" alike!

I have been in this business for almost two years and I am always amazed at how much people are willing to help each other out. This is one of the reasons I love this business so much. I want to encourage newbies and pros alike to keep up this tradition, which makes the World Wide Web such a great place to work.

There are many ways to keep up the tradition of building relationships and helping fellow netizens. Here are a few:

*Provide Free Content and Resources on Your Website. When you put up a website, make available resources and information for people just learning the business or building an existing business. There are numerous articles, ebooks, downloads, web tools and more you can make available on your site. A few places to find these things are:


*Answer Email Inquiries. When newbies or oldies email you to ask your advice or to get your help on something, you should be as helpful and considerate as you can. Answer the email as quickly as you can and show that person the respect and concern you would like others to show you. Encourage them to write back if they need more help. Remember, you were once in that position also. This is a great way to not only build business relationships, but also friendships as well.

*Provide Free Services Such as Free Classifieds on Your Site or in Your Ezine. This is a great way for beginners or people on a tight budget to get in some advertising.

*Put a Message Board on Your Site or Start an Email Discussion List. This gives people a way to actually "talk" to other people who have been in their shoes and have learned by experience. You can share your knowledge and experience and help others in the process.

*Do Ad Swaps with Other Publishers (even if they do not have as many subscribers) I have had only one publisher turn me down for a swap because I did not have enough subscribers. I do not believe in this. Besides helping out the new publisher, you could possibly gain more subs than from a bigger ezine.

When doing business on the net, you must not forget that there are people on the other end of your screen and you cannot lose that person to person contact that we need to succeed. And not only are you helping others in their business, but you are building a reputation for you and your business! So in closing, I would like to thank all publishers and webmasters who provide some or all of these services. There are many of us who are verygrateful.
