Everybody loves buying things, but most of us hate being sold to. Sales and advertising have negative connotations for many people and that’s because it makes them think of products being pushed on them. This is in no way unique to online marketing or the Internet marketing niche. Far from it. Pushy sales-people and -tactics have been around since long before the Internet came along.

And instead of talking fluff around the subject or giving you a vapid 10-point list, I decided to give you a very practical example of how to apply a USP, that you can test right away.

Are you working on “making money online” or on building a business? You may wonder if there’s even a difference – after all, isn’t the purpose of a business to make money?
