Do You Have a Swipe File for Your Internet Based Home Business?
If you have been running internet based home businesses for any length of time, have you managed to build up a big swipe file? As an internet marketer a swipe file is something you should certainly use for the various aspects of your online business.
This is a fantastic way of never running out of ideas. Many successful internet marketers use a swipe file to store any information that they feel might be useful to them in the future.
So how large is your swipe file?
One thing that all internet marketers have in common is the number of emails that land in their in boxes on a daily basis, which are usually discarded rapidly. If one of them has an eye catching subject line, rather than deleting it save it in your swipe file. When you need some inspiration for an email campaign of your own then your swipe file is the place to get it.
Another use for your swipe file is to store the URLs to some of the best articles you have read. You can refer to these when stuck for subject ideas for articles of your own. Never copy anyone directly just use these articles for the ideas and write your own articles.
Concentrating on a specific program or affiliate product is an excellent way to make money, but you also need to plan ahead, so if you find a good program that you might possibly want to join, the swipe file is there to save it in.
This applies equally to any promising products that you might want to sell. Obviously none of us can sell everything we come across that looks interesting but the internet offers a wonderful opportunity to diversify into different niches and to profit from them so that we are building multiple streams of income. Having a swipe file that we can access when we are looking for ideas for a future website or blog just makes good business sense.
Another great source for great ideas and content is updates you receive via email from some of your favorite blogs. Save these in your swipe file as well as it then becomes a simple task to refer to them very quickly.
So begin right away to build a swipe file and add to it on a regular basis. Your internet home business will benefit enormously and your job will be so much easier if you do this.
