Advertising in the new world

There are so many different ways to advertise.

Developing your perfect method of reaching your customers may be very different than you thought. Watch this video but be warned, you may find that you have more ideas than you know what to do with. With the recent changes in how Google and other online advertising publishers seem to be responding to calls for more specialized content you have to wonder just who is in charge over there anyway.


Installing WordPress Manually

There are a lot of very good reasons not to use auto installers.

Lets examine a few of those things in this post today, There are several popular scripted agents that will install a software program automatically, however this is not something that you want to do, for the very simple reason that it produces far too many default settings, such as the names used in the settings, this creates a problem.   When you examine how it works and you fully understand the dangers it can create for the novice user you know that you just should say no.  A scripted agent operates at a level above the user, in most instances you have public_html/website There is one level above that which only the account user can usually access.

This would be represented like this, / or username/public_html/  

I know that a lot of people tend to try to say that installing wordpress should be as easy as using the push button installer, but let me tell you it usually results in less security for your website, it means that you might end up with a website that gets hacked so much more easily that other websites.

Methods of securing your wordpres installation are not that difficult, however you should be aware that there is no bullet proof process that guarantees your website is completely safe.

The problem starts when you begin to use a scripted agent that is located in a place on the hard drive where no normal user exists, this means that in some instances, (depending on how the hosting account is setup) you have the issue of installing a script, from root/whm/  this operates far above the permission levels that most users will have access to when that happens you have many potential problems that can create issues for you and your clients.   Learning how to install wordpress manually is a simple process and like most learning situations once you learn how to do it, you will find it easier to do the next time you try it out. 

 


seo keywords and how patterns effect your web page.

SEO keywords research.

Google keyword tool, meta keywords, the list of all the different types of SEO keywords is enormous.

 

In every instance in life we see patterns, they emerge in our lives.

They effect everything around us from the time we wake up in the morning until we go to bed at night. It is because of these patterns that we see methods of how human interaction is different, every time it is different, however, when you develop a pattern of never changing even the smallest things, it creates a problem for websites that use automatic methods of producing content.  

Now this is a big subject, and there are literally millions of millions of websites dedicated to SEO, however, only a hand full of them actually reveal anything that is worth reading, and still fewer of the services are worth what they advertise. Now you may be asking why is that? Well for the most part there are hundreds of these so called guarantee services, that promise you everything but deliver often nothing. It is a concern that we have so many of these services, that promise the number one ranking in Google, when you know they cannot deliver it, because the number one position is always a sponsored position, that means you have to pay Google for that position, now that is not bad, at least not entirely bad, because Google has to make money right, otherwise how could they afford all the costs associated with running a huge business and make no mistake it is a business, that is why most of these SEO companies are just bunk, trash, garbage, and scams. So the next time you are tempted to pay for an SEO service, think about it, can they really do what they claim they can do? Did you know that even just one or two links per day can benefit your website better than having 2000 backlinks per day? That might sound crazy, but in reality it is true, mostly because Google will penalize you for buying back links, and don't think they don't know what your doing, I mean come on, they were doing it long before you did, so they know what to look for and they know when you do it. So in reality, using social book marking, and SEO, using your own two hands will help your website more than buying a service. One final thought, and think about this long and hard, before you think about buying an SEO service, look at the ranking of the website you are buying from, are they in the top set? Or are they ranked really really low at Alexa? Now that will tell a huge story, because if the company that claims that they can get you high rankings cant even get high rankings for their own website, then how can you expect them to get high rankings for your website. Does that compute, I sure hope so, because I have had so many clients that have come to me wailing about how much money they have spend on SEO services and they get almost no results, and that my friends is the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.


Securing Your Business Internet Security

Why it is so hard for the older generation to fit into the technology world.

 

Do you live in the electronic age or the computer age?

Can you operate a remote control?

Seriously, some people seem to be able to figure out those little devices so easily while others struggle. For many Business owners, the world of Security is usually a title held by a young man or woman, in IT. This can be a real problem in small business.

Knowledge is the most powerful tool you can give your business.

Today, businesses are taking advantage of the Internet to market and sell their products and services. It is now considered a necessity for businesses to integrate the Internet in their operations in order to effectively compete with other businesses and become the best. The problem with so many small business owners these days is that they just do not understand technology and they do not want people to know they may not be as up on current technology as the next person in line after all they are the boss, they own the business.

This is dangerous because it is pride plain and simple, and you know what happens, when you put pride first, yep that is right it comes before a Fall. These days you had better put your pride behind you because if your not careful your competitor down the road can take your business by just providing extra value to his or her customers. The Internet offers many advantages in your business. It will provide a wider range of potential clients and it also provides a great way to advertise your products and services. Integrating the Internet in your business will mean increased profits and decreased cost in overall advertising. It will also provide you with more potential customers worldwide.

However, the Internet also has its disadvantages.

Because more and more people are spending their money in the Internet by purchasing products and services, they will also leave traces of their financial and personal information in their computers. Because of this, there are quite a number of people who are also taking advantage of the Internet to steal from other people. Your business will also be vulnerable to this kind of crime. Although the Internet exposes your company to the world in order to make more money, it will also expose your online business to people and software that aims on destroying your business or steal money from it.

This is why it is important for you to get an internet security program for your online business in order to protect you and your company from malicious software and also from people who will want to gain access to your company’s secrets and use it to steal from you. Today, there are quite a few numbers of Internet security programs that you can take advantage of in order to protect your business computers from ad-ware, spyware, spam and phishing emails, and also protect your business from hackers.

However, some of the Internet security software available are too weak and can only provide minimum security for your computers. This is why you should look for an Internet security software program that can effectively protect your computer from malicious software circulating the Internet today. You should consider purchasing an Internet security software program that is designed specifically for online businesses. There are quite a few companies that offer great security for computers. Here are the things you should look for in an Internet security program that you should install in your computer:

• AntiVirus Programs – Since there are quite a lot of viruses circulating the internet today, you should look for an internet security program that offers maximum protection against computer viruses. It should also contain upgradeable virus definition features in order to help your computer fight new computer viruses popping out in the Internet everyday.

• AntiSpam Software – Phishing and spam emails are very dangerous. A good internet security program should have an antispam software to automatically detect spam and phishing emails and protect your computer from people who wants to take advantage of your online business.

• Website Lock Features – Since your employees may have the urge to download things in the Internet, your Internet security program should provide a website lock feature to prevent your employees from wandering around the Internet and accidentally download files with malicious programs.

• Anti Adware and Spyware – Ad-ware and spyware can be annoying popup ads. When you accidentally click on the popup ad, you will automatically install a spyware program. This program is like surveillance equipment that reports to the person who designed the program about the activities you do in your computer. More importantly there are some serious considerations you should think about when allowing employees to access the internet…

These are some of the things you should look for in an Internet security program. With this, you can be sure that your online business will be secured from hackers, identity thieves, viruses and other malicious software.

xcode

Has apple not learned its lesson yet?

It seems not, after apple took almost 5000 apps off line because of what some people saw are PC, reason, politically correct.

Apple recently changed its terms of use allowing more developers to develop with tools other than xcode, we feel it is important to give credit where credit it due.

What makes a good app?

With all the different environments available for programmers, it is interesting to note that xcode is one of the most miss understood programming methods out there, it is not surprising, apple does not go out of its way to explain, or even make it understandable.

In the forums you will notice a lack of empathy toward the beginning user, it is even apparent that official reply are far and few between, in recent changes to the SDK, software development kit, terms of use, many thousands of developers found that they could no longer support the apple platform.

This created a lot of bad press and even more bad feelings among the very people that had supported apple when apple was not as popular as it is today.

In some of these miss begotten, terms, you can allegedly only use “certain approved” programming techniques.

This is not a good way to encourage the creative process.

As a result the forums have become literal ghost towns, with fewer and fewer participants.

If SJ wants people to start using Xcode, I think they will need to put a little of their mouth behind the growth of the tool into a more Object oriented offering, such as many more modern tools have already made available to its user base.

One thing for sure, unless apple changes its ways, one of the things you will be getting with your apple products will allegedly be worms.


Social Development in Business

The list of social networks and online social network companies is growing every day, bebo, ning, social engine, friendster,

Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, the list could go on for a long time. Many people wonder why they do not have the success that they want in business. The answer may be less about luck and chance than you may have previously considered.

There are a lot of business opportunities out there however which ones are the best and how do you know they are effective.

  Most of the time, the reason will be right under their nose; they are just unable to see it. The first thing that someone who is not successful in business should ask is, “Am I successful in my personal life and relationships?” If the answer is no, then you now have your answer as to why you are not successful in business. You cannot have a successful career if you do not have adequate personal and social development.

The business world is not your entire life, as much as it may seem to be. Your career is but one aspect of your life that also includes friends, family, and personal needs and issues. The only way to have success in your career is by having success in personal and social development. A balance must be struck. True success cannot be had in one area of your life and not another.

This is how personal development, social development, and business development are all linked together. Personal development is about how you handle your life, thoughts, feelings, emotions, and reactions. Personal development techniques include goal setting, changing to a positive mind set, and learning to deal with all situations in a positive manner.

These skills will transfer to the workplace in business development. Without goal setting, time management skills, and positive thinking, a successful career is not possible. Social development is about how you deal with other people. Obviously, people skills and social development are necessary for business development and a successful career.

How you interact with your co-workers, your boss, and your customers, clients, or prospects is just as important as your actual work performance. Social development skills include situation management, stress management, problem solving, dispute resolution, and communication skills. Without proper social development, you cannot have a successful career. Besides helping with your business development, personal and social development will help you to realize how successful you truly are in your career. Through personal development skills such as time management and organization, you will be able to better manage your finances and household. This will allow you to better see and enjoy the fruits of your labors.

Social development will also help you realize your success as you develop stronger relationships with your friends and family, and gain more support from these groups than you ever have before through improved communication skills. There are some obstacles to personal and social development, just as there are obstacles to business development. But all in all, by developing your personal, social, and business skills, one will undoubtedly resolve the others. For example, if your business development is hindered by a lack of support, working on social development skills like communication can gain you the support you need from friends and family. If you have trouble developing social skills due to hindrance by past events or criticisms, then you can focus on personal development by changing your mind set. Overall, happiness and success in all areas of your life are dependent upon a balance between personal and social development.

Whether your ultimate goal is to become a successful professional or an efficient housewife, personal and social development will work for you to help you realize your goals and become successful in every aspect of your life.


verizon iphone

Is the verizon iphone crippled?

You may have heard about the new iphone being offered by verizon and apple which is the first time since the iphone was released that another carrier has been able to access the technology, but is it really a good deal?

Many people wonder about a lot of things, concerning, this device, simply because of the obvious disadvantages that this allegedly crippled device, has including being one dimensional, in its ability to only access the radio or the modem, so you cannot make a phone call and be online at the same time.

This is a problem, for a number of reasons but mostly it allegedly could be considered unfair business practices.

Think about it this way, if you are a consumer and you purchase a device from verizon and you find out later that the device will not work as you expected it to work because of all the advertising, you might consider that the advertising was deceptive.

So will the FTC come to the aid of the consumer because it is something to consider being that apple intentionally (allegedly) has not enabled, the Verizon i phone to work on the fast 4 G network which is yet another disadvantage.

This is not good for the consumer, because it places them at a disadvantage when compared to other consumers, it creates an unequal situation among consumers, now ask yourself this question is that fair to the consumer?

It may not be clear if apple has broken any laws in its alleged intentional manipulation of a market they have a strong presence in already.

It seems like apple has created a situation where the consumer may be harmed because of self limiting software that has created an unequal relationship between the provider and the consumer.

it is troublesome.

I for one was prepared to make a purchase from Verizon however, after learning about the nature of the problems with the device, It makes it unlikely that new consumers will make a purchasing decision, unless they are subjected to deceptive advertising.

It really looks like a lot of money was spent on this product but the consumer will be the true looser here.


affiliate amazon

Companys like linkshare, and even google affiliate, are great opportunities to make a little spare change and if your really good you can create a decent part time income, but can you really make big money selling affiliate products?

 

The answer is yes you can but it does take some work when dealing with millions of affiliates out there you have to be better than your competition.

Affiliate marketing programs has never been as popular before as it is today. 

Why? 

here can be a number of reasons. 

The most probable reason, however, could be the fact that the benefits of affiliate marketing have become clearer to a lot of people now than they were before.

Today, both the merchants and the affiliates can see clearly that affiliate marketing can work for both of them.  The merchant sees affiliate marketing today as the chance to advertise their products at a lower cost.  The affiliates, on the other hand, sees affiliate marketing as an easy way of earning profits online by doing what they like most, and that is by creating websites.

Just as the popularity of affiliate marketing has shifted into greater heights, so has the people’s outlook about it changed.  No longer is affiliate marketing considered today as an alternative method for the merchant to advertise his products, or as a source of additional income for the affiliates. 

For merchants and affiliates alike, affiliate marketing is now considered as a main source of profits and revenues.

So the question now is what type of affiliate marketing will work best for you?  Are all affiliate marketing programs the same?  Are the benefits the same?  Or are there affiliate marketing programs that work better than the others?

There are actually different types or classes of affiliate marketing, and the number of types will depend on how one will classify them.  The most basic affiliate marketing programs, however, falls under two categories: pay-per-click (PPC), and pay-per-performance (PPP).

Pay Per Click (PPC)

PPC is the most popular type of affiliate marketing for affiliates with small websites, and probably the easiest way for them to earn money.  In this affiliate marketing type, the merchant pays his affiliate whenever a visitor is referred to his site, that is whenever someone clicks through the merchant’s banner or text ads.  The affiliate gets paid a certain amount even if the visitor he referred does not purchase anything from the merchant’s site.  However, typical fees for PPC affiliate programs are small, usually not exceeding a dollar for every click.

Pay Per Performance (PPP)

PPP affiliate marketing is the most popular among merchant and is also the most lucrative type for the affiliates.  In this type of affiliate program, the merchant only pays the affiliate whenever his referral translates into an auction that is whenever the visitor he has referred actually buys something from the merchant’s site or when the visitor becomes a lead.  This means a lot of savings for the merchant.  On the other hand, it becomes the most lucrative type for the dedicated affiliate, for commissions in PPP affiliate marketing usually comes in the range of 15% to 20% of the actual product sales.

Pay-per-performance affiliate marketing can be further classified into two popular types: pay-per-sales (PPS) and pay-per-lead (PPL).

 Pay Per Sale (PPS)

In a pay-per-sale type of affiliate marketing, the merchants pay the affiliate a certain fee whenever the visitor he has referred to the merchant’s site actually buys something from the merchant’s site.  Affiliates are often paid on commission basis, although other merchants would opt to pay a fixed fee.  But no matter what the basis of the fee is, it is generally higher than the fee paid to affiliates in a pay-per-click affiliate program.

Pay Per Lead (PPL)

The pay-per-lead type of affiliate marketing is a slight variation of the PPS type and is often used by insurance and finance companies and other companies who rely on leads for their company to grow.  In this type of affiliate marketing, the affiliate is paid whenever the visitor he referred to the merchant’s site fills up an application form or any similar form related to the business of the company.  Compensation for this type of affiliate marketing is based on a fixed fee whose rates approximate that of the fixed fee in the PPS type.

Aside from these three specific types of affiliate marketing, a lot of other affiliate marketing types exist.  If the classification is based on the depth of the affiliate network, it can be classified as single-tier, two-tier, and multi-tier affiliate marketing.  There is also another type of affiliate marketing that pays the affiliate each time the customer he has referred purchases something from the merchant’s site.

Single-Tier, Two-Tier, and Multi-Tier Affiliate Marketing

These types of affiliate marketing are based on the different levels or tiers in the affiliate network by which payments are made.  In a single-tier affiliate marketing program, the affiliates are only paid based on the direct sales or traffic he has referred to the merchant.  All the previously mentioned affiliate marketing types (i.e. PPS< PPL, and PPC) fall under the single-tier classification.  In two-tier affiliate marketing programs, the affiliate is not only paid for the direct traffic or sales that he refers to the merchant’s site, but also on every traffic or sales referred by various other affiliates who joined the affiliate program through his recommendation.  Multi-tier affiliate marketing works the same way, although the affiliate gets additional commission for a wider number of affiliates in different tiers in the affiliate network. Residual Income Affiliate Marketing In residual income affiliate marketing, the affiliate gets paid not only once for every customer he has referred to the merchant’s site.  Rather, the affiliate is also paid whenever the customer he has referred returns to the site and purchase another product.  Compensation for such type of affiliate marketing is based on either sales percentage commission or fixed fee basis. The different affiliate marketing types would virtually work differently for merchants and affiliates alike, and each would generally have their own list of benefits.  Which type of affiliate marketing will work best for you?  It is not really for me to tell.  Rather, it is for you to choose which type of affiliate marketing program will suit your needs and characteristics best.
