John asks…

Internet Marketing Ideas?

I own a small internet web maternity clothing shop. www.hautemamacouture.com I get almost no business to it at all. I tried paying for advertising with search engines but I had too small a budget (spent $100 on 4 different engines/month). I also have the same items in a store on eBay. That’s where I make 99% of my money. However, with their recent announcements of fee increases, they should just change their name to FeeBay and their changes to the feedback policy that will not allow a seller to leave negative when warranted, I can no longer afford to do business on there. I spend about $500-$1,000 in eBay fees a month but I make about $4,000 a month. How can I shift some of this around to promote my website. I am on a very limited budget and have no idea how to get people to go to this website and buy. Thanks!

Hi April,

I’ve done a quick check on your incoming links, there were none. To have a great SEO score link building must be top priority for you. Rather have less quality incoming links than many lower ranked links.

Although not true SEO, a blog is highly recommended to achieve high traffic. A blog is great to build a brand, it may not result in instant sales but it sure will indirectly. Once you’ve begun a blog you can then submit it to several social bookmarking websites that will increase your traffic even further.

I’ve compared your site to your competitors and their websites have good keyword density, meta tags (not to important), incoming links. Your goal should be to match these sites and you’ll soon be receiving targeted traffic.

If done properly SEO can be managed with a small budget.

Lizzie asks…

who’s the internet marketing expert in the philippines?

im not speaking of LARGE companies, just persons who actually teach and apply what they teach in the Philippines

barry0912 answers:

That is a tough question and probably the reason for no answers yet. You can be the internet marketing expert in the Phillippines. Start a blog, read as many books on Internet Marketing you can get your hands on and start a few test websites and put your education to the test. Then you will have a portfolio of websites that are good examples of internet marketing. Good Luck!

Your Questions About Title Ix

Sharon asks…

Title IX and hard sciences. What does it mean for hard sciences ? How will it be implemented ?

The classes are already gender neutral, there is nothing from keeping women entering that field. What will happen if not more women sign up ?
Jery, Library science and Education do not qualify as hard sciences.
Thats what they said 5 years ago, now they want title IX.

barry0912 answers:

Probably by kicking out most of the men so the number of men matches is equal to the few women that decided those fields.

William asks…

Does anyone know about any supreme court cases about Title IX?

any cases that somehow had to do with Title IX, women discrimination in sports, etc . links or answers would be very helpful…thanks!!!

barry0912 answers:

Title IX has been tremendously good for women’s college sports but a disaster for men’s college sports. Hundreds of wresting, tennis, swimming, and other men’s teams have been cut thanks to Title IX.

Mary asks…

I would like to learn more about the stock market, can someone tell me where to start?

I am interested in the goings on of the stock market. I would like to know how to decipher everything and possibly do some informed investing on my own. Can someone show me where to begin learning about it?

barry0912 answers:

Standard investment advice is that you should invest in a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, and money market funds. If you are like most people you will invest part of your money aggressively in stocks, and part conservatively in money market funds and bond funds. Vanguard has an on-line questionnaire which will give you an idea of how to do “Asset Allocation,” determining how much to put in each type of fund.

You want to buy a diversified portfolio of stocks as individual stocks are too risky. Highly knowleadgable people can buy a properly balanced portfolio, but most folks have a difficult time balancing things on their own. They will misbalance their portfolio by buying all small stocks or all growth stocks, or some other misbalanced assortment of stocks. Back in 2000, Some people bought all internet stocks; they got burnt when they all crashed together. You have to diversify across industries. Unless you know what you are doing, it is best to buy mutual funds. I like Vanguard.com, other people like Fidelity, TIAA-CREF, and DFA. Buy no-load, low cost funds.

If your company offers a 401K plan at work, try to invest the most you can. The money grows tax free, and some companies will match your contribution. Investing in a mutual fund IRA is also a good idea. If you have children, you may want to consider a 529 plan or other college savings plan that grows tax free.

I like index funds. Because of their broad diversification, you are less likely to have a dramatic drop in value. They also have the lowest expenses. For stock funds, I would suggest putting ~70-80% of your money in the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund. And ~20-30% in a foreign stock index fund. However, there are many different opinions out there on what the best mutual funds are. Read the links below and form your own opinion.

If you have high-interest debt, like credit cards, it is best to pay this off first before trying most of the investment ideas above. You should also have 3-6 months of salary saved up as an emergency fund in a bank or money market fund before trying more risky investments.

Believing advice you get on Yahoo answers can be risky, so read these websites for further information. If you find it too confusing, contact a professional financial advisor. They will charge you significant commissions, however.

Asset Allocation Calculators
(Determining how much to put in stocks and how much into bonds and money markets is a personal decision depending on your financial status. These Asset Allocation questionaires give you a rough idea how to do this. I like Vanguard best, but try some of the other sites as well.)
