List of things we need to run an internet biz.
1.) ADVANCED MAIL LIST TECH. Master your BROWSER's EMAIL CLIENT. EUDORA
has a mail client with all the bells and whistle. I don't use it, I USE NETSCAPE BROWSER vers 4.5 which has a similar built in mail client with the features of EASY VISIBILITY, easy list making. Easy collating by subject, date, size, sender. Download both and see. The former costs bucks, the latter does not! Second and main reason I use only NETSCAPE. I don't surf with netscape, it crashes as it's from vintage 1995. I use FIREFOX 2 for that, (can't go to three as I'm on windows 98.)
2.) FILE MANAGEMENT. Even these Windows Systems use the old DOS language
underneath. HAVING A TEXT reading FILE MANAGER is useful. Fast collating, fast
viewing, enter file and if text, format, replace <<s if it's an ex email. Try it, go to http://www.ztree.com and download it free, and play with it. I can collate with a single
click for names, subjects, dates received, size of email, making life very easy.
3.) Knowing your basic WORD PROGRAMS. My pc's all have WORD PERFECT FOR
DOS, (easy collation is its feature, so legal industry used it, loved
it,) it has never been beat. I USE WORD PERFECT FOR WINDOWS to pull the
text from the FORMER one, into the latter, save it in latter form i.e. a
document. THEN I OPEN it with MICROSOFT WORD 1997 (Bill Gates word processor found in
OFFICE SUITE.) And save it one more time as htm. HYPTEREXT, ready to go
online and be seen. Like what you're reading here. I refuse to use WORD 2000 and up as they
do not allow for easy entering of graphic files. To do that I USE NETSCAPE COMPOSER which
comes inside an old version (4.5) of NETSCAPE BROWSER that you download free online.
4.) A GOOD HTM WORDPROCESSOR and knowing the various FORMATTING
REFINEMENTS, colored fonts, *Paragraph HEADERS with stars or indents,
DIFFERENT widths of column, and for adding graphics. I use the word
processor that is inside of my NETSCAPE BROWSER called "COMPOSER" as
graphics are added most easily to files with it.
5.) BURNING CDS - Selling them. I want a burner and a hundred cd's so I can send out the MASTER JULES lectures ! He is spellbinding. I transcribed his stuff though. Free to you. The CD's would be 4$ each if I could go in that direction.
6.) Learn to use CRAIGS LIST for placing ads.
