Timezones for International Internet Marketers

Guys and Girls in the US and anywhere else for that matter take note, especially if you want to make more cash. This little tip might make a huge difference to your bottom line.

As some of my readers know, I’ve been involved in IM since 1997. It would be fair to say that I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to products and money making ventures but there is one thing that still irritates me like nothing else.

Timezones. Or more specifically lack of information in your emails about them.

This problem affects everyone and I’m really surprised at how few ‘experts’ still tend to ignore the problem and do nothing to make life easier for their readers and customers.

We know that most of the big marketers are US based and we can assume that most of their customers are based in the US to. BUT (notice that’s a big but?) – a growing percentage of customers are based outside of the US. So why is it, with very few exceptions, these marketers send out emails or postings asking us to attend webinars and conference calls at say … 8PM EDT and then they don’t put a link to somewhere where readers in other countries can find out what time it is for them?

We know that you have very little time to make a good impression.
We know that you need to make it simple

So why not help your readers work out when ‘8PM Eastern’ is in their part of the world?

Make it easy and we will turn up.

A simple link at the foot of your email or post makes all the difference. Just ask those who do it and you’ll find that they get more new customers in other parts of the world which means bigger profits.
