Wizard, Catherine Franz, is sharing some tips on what to
expect in 2004 that could possibly affect your business.

* Interrupt marketing is still fading in 2004, actually
decreasing tremendously faster than in 2003. And could be
totally eliminated by consumer voice and some new government
regulations being proposed.

* Required planned marketing strategies doubling in order
to stay ahead in building trust and continuing a legitimate
marketing campaign.

almost nil by the end of 2004.

* Online surfers increased their sophisticated in 2003 and
will double in 2004.

* E-commerce is going to make some drastic changes in
transaction smoothness.

* Website hosting companies are going to begin to need to
create other backend revenue because hosting prices are
going to drop considerably due to larger companies providing
more hosting services fee in order to attract higher numbers
to make bigger revenues from their mailing list numbers.

its usefulness and will triple its popularity for promoting
products and services. Expected numbers are predicted to be
off the charts.

in referrals, joint ventures, and strategic alliances.

* Bragging will be on the increase and will become even
more sociably accepted in sales than in 2003.

* Fierce competitor competition among services companies
will decline just slightly as companies run to catch up on
learning to marketing cleanly.

* Web sites going e-commerce will double its numbers from
2003.
