Tips, Training, & Techniques
Your sales funnel
Whether you realize it or not, other companies have used their “sales funnel” on you when you bought or considered buying something. You can create your own seller’s process to help your leads become your customers.
Domain name scams
When you register a domain name, your contact information on that domain registration is made public unless you hide it. This makes it easier for people to access your information and potentially scam you.
Since most online services require you to use your email address for your login, your email becomes a single point of failure for all your accounts. Shore up your email address with a strong, hard-to-guess password and use 2-Factor Authentication if your email provider supports it.
