Your first step towards successful online business is: A website

To become a successful businessman, you need a website.

But you also need a website even if you are not a business-freak or just an easy-going person.

Why is website useful?

Your online friends can meet you as and when they wish, without facing any difficulty. You too can contact them whenever you want.

You can easily make new friends

You will see that as soon as you invite a few friends to your site, they will in turn invite a few others.

This way, the number of friends visiting your website will increase, and so, will increase your traffic. You will be able to build an online community.

When you see your website has 5000 exposures per month, you can contact reputed businessmen and webmasters to advertise with you! They will be more than happy to advertise in your site.

Just what you started as just a ‘Friends’club’transformed into a Goldmine for you. You can now be assured of a regular income from your advertisement even when you are sleeping!

It is through this outlined process that Yahoo! was built!

When you have the potential, why lie idle?

Second point is that, if you think you don’t have enough cash to pay for web hosting, you can get it for free! I know there are a lot of free hosts out there but the most superior among them is Bravenet.Bravenet has a member base of about 6,834,622.

Just wanted to say thanks for a awesome site! I had struggled with WWWBoard (Perl-app) and my web provider to create decent conference ability for my bands homepage, when I accidentally ran into a site running your board. I really liked the sight of it, and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I followed the link and found out it was FREE... And that you had counters... FREE... and normal guest books.... FREE.....and.... and... . Why should anyone worry like I used to do? I will recommend you on my page!

Hi Chintu, welcome to the Forums,

First of all, here is the wrong place for your post . Try to repost it to the writing section where it can get more attention from people who are interested in correcting others' writings. But here are a few hints: try to write your article using the Microsoft "word", the mistakes regarding the space after a comma, period, ... would be underlined along with spelling errors and some basic grammatical errors. You have to pay nore attention to punctuation, articles, word order, paragraph development, .... For example, your sentences are not bound with each other in the way that they should in a paragraph, they seem rather independant from each other.
You can easily make new friends

You will see that as soon as you invite a few friends to your site, they will in turn invite a few others.

You can easily make new friends by inviting your friends to the site, who in turn invite their own friends, so uou'll have a community of old and new friends after a short time.

Your first step towards successful online business is: A website
You need the indefinite article "a" before "successful", I don't think that you need a colon after "is" to introduce your subject of interest, you can type "website" in a bold, italic, a different font colour,or a bigger font to emphasise.

Do not forget to read your writing before handing it in, you'll get a better result by doing it in a later time. With rereading your writing you can avoid mistakes like the following:
Your online friends can meet you as and when they wish
Good luck with your writings. Don't lose your hope, you can easily overcome these problems by reading a good reference guide to writing, which you won't find it difficult to spot some on the net.


I visited grammarbook.com and learnt some punctuation tips there.Do u know any website that free or cheap grammar courses?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

These are some free online resources. I'm sure they would help you inproving your writing skills. Good luck

I have a simple solution. Read Lynne Truss' "Eats, Shoots & Leaves".
I have a bad punctuation skill, and need a website that can help me. Are there any websites that are free that i can use to help.

Thank You,

Cherie McCallum
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
