The following sentence will be left out of this article: Automating your online business is one of the most important steps you can take to insure your success on the internet. You're probably saying to yourself "Thank goodness he left that out. I've been on the Internet for a while, and if I know anything, it's that there are just too many tasks to do each day to be really efficient and productive with them all."

Learning to delegate and automate some of the routine activities of Web maintenance is one way to insure your site's success and to give you much more time in the day for the most important task which is that of the promotion and marketing of your site.

2) MAILING LIST MANAGEMENT:
If you are trying to run your own newsletter, handling the process by yourself can eat up a lot of valuable time.  In the beginning this may be possible, but as your list grows and the tasks involved keep multiplying, your time demands will increase also. There are lots of ways to manage a mailing list including installing your own scripts and purchasing your own software.
Weigh the pros and cons, but be sure and check out the possibility of *outsourcing* the responsibility to a mailing list service.
