Interesting Questions About Email Lists For Sale

Carol asks…

How to get early tickets to Taylor Swift concerts?

I’m on the email list, but I haven’t noticed any emails that
really help me get pre-sale tickets. Help?

Richard answers:

I found some when I did a search at myticketdaddy com

http://www.myticketdaddy.com/ResultsGeneral.aspx?stype=0&kwds=Taylor%20Swift

Looks like you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can buy tickets to events listed.

Good luck.

Laura asks…

Doesn’t anyone ever answer the telephone, return left messages or respond to emails any more?

I’ve been trying to contact estate liquidators for 5 days now. I’ve called everyone in the phone book in a 20 mile radius, but either they don’t answer or I get their answering machine. So far nobody has returned a call. The ones that have email listed also have not responded to any of them. Is this any way to run a business?

Richard answers:

Today is Monday and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ve been trying for 5 days? They may all have been busy with estate sales over the weekend. That is their busy time – Friday through Sunday. Even estate liquidators have to have some time off, too. They also may be booked up with estate sales, depending on how may are in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r area which you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 did not specify. Mondays and Tuesdays are probably their days off. Wait until Wednesday or Thursday. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 haven’t heard back from any by then, keep trying. There’s no law against making a pest of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself in this circumstance.

Thomas asks…

Are viral marketing techniques more effective then web advertising?

I am thinking of doing both for my website, but a banner ad which costs $1000 per month at least, gets a click through rate of 0.20% or 20 clicks per 10,000 views. That is very weak.

Would it not be better to advertise through social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, and through emailing lists?

Richard answers:

Social marketing calls for the long soft sale, typically you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to take time to make friends first, Facebook ads are cheaper when targeting a Fan Page, but 0.15% conversion rates are typical for conventional PPC ads.

There are tons of paid advertising options, in some cases text ads do better than graphics (banner blindness) some banners with painted in text messages do better than slick graphics, split testing is essential for profitable advertising. Different ad networks have different targeting methods, traffic quality and prices, try a few.
An alternative that was hot a few years ago is CPV “contextual” advertising, basically user installed adware pops up you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r ad window (or live site) when they visit a site you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have targeted.

David asks…

How do I remove a listing from Yahoo.real estate that is no longer valid?

1649 2800 Avenue is not currently listed for sale. It is showing up on Yahoo real estate as an active listing. It is NOT for sale and should be removed.

Richard answers:

Hi Stephanie,

I’d like to help but I can’t find the listing, can you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 please provide the link to it?

I’ll work on it for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. I cannot search by address alone, I need a city and state.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get for FREE!

Richard answers:

Keep Visitors Coming Back

Don’t just market to new visitors; market to return visitors as well! There are a number of ways to do this:

Update you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site at least once a month!

Make sure ALL departments are using the web site to communicate. Not just the marketing staff but, also, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r volunteer manager, anyone who works with clients, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r fund-raising staff, etc.

Have a place on the 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 page for announcements, upcoming events, links to blog updates, etc., so that a visitor to the 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 page can immediately see what’s new.

Create a subscription-based email newsletter to promote updates to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site.

Create a way to allow people to receive updates about you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site via their RSS readers. For instance, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 could create a blog at a free site like Forumer (it’s what I use for my blog) that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 use only to announce events, new services, updates to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site, etc., and then link these announcements to appropriate places on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site. Then, anyone who wants to can put you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site announcement blog into their RSS reader, and automatically receive updates whenever you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 post such (the RSS feed address for the Jayne Blog: is http://blogs.forumer.com/rss.php?u=jcravens).

The key to successful Internet marketing is to accept that it is a never-ending, integrated process. New web sites and online discussion groups emerge and disappear regularly. You need to track with regular searches new sites with whom to link and new lists on which to announce you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r organization and its service. To market efficiently and effectively online you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r entire staff has to immerse itself, at least to some degree, in using the Internet regularly as part of their work.

Other resources from Jayne Cravens and Coyote Communications:

Promoting Your Nonprofit Online
Advice that goes well beyond just Web sites — it talks about email, online communities, podcasts, webcasts, and more.

Don’t Just Ask for Money!
Something much more should happen if someone clicks on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site’s “Help Us” link than a message that asks only for money.

Mission-Based Groups Need Use the Web to Show Accountability
There has never been a better time for mission-based organizations to use technology to show their transparency and credibility, and to teach the media and general public about the resources needed to address critical human and environmental needs.

Handling Online Criticism
Online criticism of a nonprofit organization, even by its own supporters, is inevitable. How a nonprofit organization handles online criticism speaks volumes about that organization, for weeks, months, and maybe even years to come. There’s no way to avoid it, but there are ways to address criticism that can help an organization to be perceived as even more trustworthy and worth supporting.

Steven asks…

If russia’s wheat crops are damaged is this a good time to invest in wheat? Can anyone verify crop damage?

I got an email tip that russia’s (and other countries) have damaged crops from drought and other things. Can anyone verify this. If this is true, is this a good time to buy wheat stocks? The crop damage was compared to 2007 and 2008 crop damages which would have been a good time to make a little extra money on crop stocks.

Richard answers:

This info is already widely known, and priced into the market. You should also check and see if there are problems in the us. North Dakota, S Dakota, Kansas, also grow huge amounts of wheat. Canada’s western provinces also grow lots of wheat. Do we have huge surpluses here in north american to take up the slack?? Do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势work on these other wheat growing areas & world supplies.

Daniel asks…

How can I go about building a web site that sends emails matching each customer to certain products?

The web site (call it XWZ.COM) should match each customer with products s/he is interested in, if/when these items become available. In detail:
1– Each subscriber is assigned a password that is sent to her personal email for security/ verification. Once subscribers receive their passwords and log on to XWZ, they identify their desired product/s and receive emails telling them to check their XWZ-inbox for product availability.
2– When they logon, and before allowed to the inbox, they are given subscription options.
3– Payments are processed automatically (credit cards. PayPal ..etc)
4– Once subscribers pay and reach their XYZ-inbox, they are told if the product is available. If product becomes available after a week or month, subscriber receive email.
What programming language, sever, database, firewall and other technologies should I use to get this without paying an arm? All technical or marketing tips or references to similar small sites are appreciated.

Richard answers:

Depending on traffic and quality.

Java/JSP – High quality (less chance for bugs), expensive and scales well.

PHP – Messy, but there is a lot of stuff written in it already.

Perl – Not quite as bad as PHP, but still has some of the same problems.

Personally, I would try to use perl or consider using PHP for the web front end and perl for the email functions and any control panels when possible.

You might look around for some of the technology already out there, inspect the source code to determine how viable it is to modify it for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r needs.

For subscription stuff, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 could consider:

(PHP)

http://www.geniegate.com/listings/dolphin/

It’ll confirm email addresses for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势, but, won’t manage the mailings. (you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 could write code specifically for that later) Full disclosure, I own GenieGate.

As far as the ecommerce, there are a lot of shopping carts out there, look for one that is simple (don’t go for “lots of features” go for “written well and can be modified) I sometimes see people go for whatever has the most toys, this is a mistake for this kind of software, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 really want “easy to code in”.

You’ll probably want to interface with the product catalog to generate the email, so, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r ecommerce package should have a nice table structure and/or good, object oriented code for accessing the products.

It goes without saying, once a package is modified, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can’t “upgrade” it.

It’s important to start off with a decent one that is relatively bug free (or at least, written so that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself can fix bugs as the crop up.)

Interesting Questions About Opt In List Marketing

Chris asks…

How can I quit getting so much junk mail?

I get at leat 2-3 pieces of junk mail/solicitation mail each day. Other than writing each individual place to take me off their list (which I’ve tried on a few and it doesn’t seem to work….) how can I get the junk to stop?
Sorry, should have specified…. I mean real mail, not email. You know, the old-fashioned kind. :-)

Richard answers:

Junk mail may seem as inevitable as death and taxes, but with a little patience there are effective ways to tackle the problem. This guide provides clear, simple and proven reduction techniques. About 20 minutes investment now will clear the junk for between two and five years.
General Techniques

Your name, address, and buying habits are a commodity that is regularly sold & traded on the open market. These days organizations you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 deal with virtually all sell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r name unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 specifically ask them to stop. Here are some general techniques:

* Whenever you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 donate money, order a product or service, or fill out a warranty card, write in large letters, “Please do not sell my name or address”. Most organizations will properly mark you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r name in the computer.
* Product warranty cards are are often used to collection information on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r habits and income, for the sole purpose of targeting direct mail. They are not required in most situations – avoid sending them.
* On the telephone, ask “Please mark my account so that my name is not traded or sold to other companies”.
* Your credit card company probably sells you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r name the most often. Call them and ask them to stop.
* “Contests” where you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 fill in a little entry blank are almost always fishing expeditions for names. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 fill one out at a football game, for example, expect to get a catalog of football merchandise within a few months. Avoid these if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t want the mail.
* Select a false middle name or initial for each charity or business you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 deal with. Keep track of which letter goes with which organization. You can also select a false road designator, “avenue, place, circle, street, highway, parkway, etc.”. This step can be very revealing. Some guides recommend changing the spelling of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r name, but this can lead to duplicate mailings.

To stop specific types of unwanted paper mail

The amount of paper junk mail sent each year in the USA is staggering — some 4 million tons, nearly half of which is never opened. Even if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 recycle there are still enormous environmental costs in terms of ink, energy to produce deliver and recycle the paper, recycling inefficiencies and loss of virgin forest to create the high quality glossy paper much junk mail uses. There is a lot you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can do to reduce the cost to the environment and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r own time:

* First class mail: Cross out the address and bar code, circle the first class postage and write “refused: return to sender”. Drop in any mail box, it will be returned to the sender.
* Bulk mail: The post office throws away bulk mail it can’t deliver, so returning it does no good. Bulk mail is the hardest to deal with because the USPS actively provides addresses, support and encouragement to mailers. However, if “address correction requested” is written on the label: circle “address correction requested” and treat like first class mail.
* Sexually Oriented Advertising (SOA):The only help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ll get from the Post Office in controlling junk mail is for explicit stuff. Fill out USPS forms 1500 if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 wish this type of mail to stop. You define what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 find to be explicit — if that’s an automobile parts catalog the post office won’t disagree with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势.
* Credit offers: The major credit agencies all sell aggregate credit information any bidder. Direct mail and credit companies generate mail based on demographics including zip code, income band and credit payment patterns. Stopping this is easy, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 just need you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r address, former address within two years, and social security number. One call does it all for agencies Equifax, Trans Union, Experian and Innovis. Dial 1-888-5 OPT OUT (or 1-888-567-8688) 24 hours a day.
* Catalogs:
o Call the company’s 800 number and have the label handy.
O Write you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r instructions on the mailing label and fax it to the company. Mark “ATTN: customer service”.
O Tear off the label, write you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r instructions on it, and enclose in the postage-paid ordering envelope. Mark envelope “ATTN: customer service”. This method is the least effective.
* AOL (America On-Line): You could pave the nation with the free discs these people send out, call 1-800-605-4297 (24 hours a day) to get off the list. Tell them you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r first name is “current”, last name “resident”.
* Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes: You can get the Clearinghouse to stop clogging you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r mailbox by contacting customer service at 1-800-645-9242 (8:30 am to 8:30 EST), sending a fax to 1-800-453-0272, mailing to 101 Channel Drive, Port Washington, NY 11050, or you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can send email to pch@500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势ant.net. PCH will remove any number of names from a specific address, but you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to list each name exactly and insist nicely.
* American Family Sweepstakes: Ed McMahon and Dick Clark will stop telling you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 “You have definitely won 11 million dollars (maybe) ” if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 call them at 1-800-237-2400. AFP is a division of Time-Warner.
* Local business & supermarket fliers: All mailings must be identified, by postal regulations. Each lose-leaf bundle of fliers, by postal regulations, must be delivered at the same time as an address card. Locate this address card; the cards usually have an advertisement and a photograph of a missing child. Call directory assistance to get the phone number of the sender, and call to get off the list:
o ADVO (Mail comes with pictures of missing children). Call 1-860-285-6100 to get off the list. You may have to send a postcard to “ADVO Consumer Assistance, POB 249, Windsor CT 06095-4176″.
O Val-Pak Coupons: click the link and fill out the form – easy, but don’t give them you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r email address.
O Carol Wright Call 1-800-67-TARGET to get off the list.
O Your local newspaper & supermarket (look for a phone number on the piece).

Most senders are professional companies which will handle you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r request politely. “ADVO Mailbox Values” and “Harte Hanks Potpourri” are the most common of these mailers. Your local supermarket’s monthly coupon books may be handled by these companies, so be sure to specify if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to continue to receive those. Your letter carrier is accustomed to giving each house a bundle, so you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 may also need to inform him or her of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r action separately. The post office is prohibited by law from delivering unaddressed mail, so you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should have little trouble convincing the carrier.
* Too much junk to deal with individually: Start by sending a postcard or letter to Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association, PO Box 643, Carmel, NY 15012-0643 Include you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r complete name, address, zip code and a request to “activate the preference service”. For up to five years, this will stop mail from all member organizations that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have not specifically ordered products from.

The Direct Marketing Association estimates that listing with their mail preference service will stop 75% of all national mailings. They process 50,000 requests a month and requests are kept active for five years. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 fill out the post office change of address form, the DMA will track the new address (you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ll get a few months of mailings to the new address before they catch up to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势). It can take up to six months for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r request to be fully processed. You can also opt-out online, but they charge $5. The best way is to fill out their online form, then mail them a printout.

To stop mail addressed to former residents, or a former spouse

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 rent you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are probably familiar with receiving mail for a dozen or more former residents of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r dwelling. Since you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 probably don’t want any of the stuff, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can use two powerful techniques that might not be appropriate for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself:

* Bulk mail for “current resident or …”: Start with sending a postcard or letter to Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association, PO Box 643, Carmel, NY 15012-0643 Write “please activate the mail preference service”, and include the name, address, and zip code. You must send individual postcards — the DMA wants to make this all as inconvienent as possible. The DMA will ignore requests that don’t appear to be from a single individual.
* First class and some bulk mail: If the former residents neglected to fill out a Post Office change of address card, or it expired, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can fill one out for them. You must fill out one card for each unique last name. Write “Moved, Left No Forwarding Address” as the new address. Sign you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r own name and write “Form filled in by current resident of the house, [Your Name], agent for the above”. You must write “agent for the above”. Hand this form directly to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r carrier, if possible, as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r carrier must approve the form and see that it gets entered into the post service National Change of Address (NCOA) database. This is very effective.

Paul asks…

How to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 convince a skeptic? Market research for a new product.?

I need to prove I have a marketable product to someone skeptical. They dont have as broad of view of the world as I but still need to sway them. I am in pat. pend. and somewhat safe to discuss although I would prefer privately. Also need help with gathering input from people within my target markets. I am somewhat of a novice in this area. How to conduct surveys and where, for free?

Richard answers:

I am going to assume this is a physical product. One of the best ways to sway then is them selves. You can give them all the bs in the world and still not make a sale.

Your sales pitch needs to be good and the best pitch is them. Now i don’t know what the product is so and that’s fine…

So here is my pitch on how to convince a skeptic. Let them try the item for x amount of days. Let them see it in action, use it and then in x days come back to take back the product if it is as good as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 say it is they WILL want it.

Here is how you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 plan works, first go in give them the sales pitch you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 could also use a website for this (see para below). Then go on to say ok you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t look convinced i tell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 what just fro you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 (makes them feel special) i will let you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 try it no catches and for free for x amount of days.

If using a website have a opt in form so they can contact you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to set up an appointment. This also builds you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r list

Think infomercials if these where just on the radio would you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 buy the product, the fact that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 see people using them showing the best points. Sells them buy the thousands they also use other marketing techniques another story.

Charles asks…

Would a compulsory organ donor period solve a lot of problems for the ones waiting on the list?

Do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 think a compulsory organ donor period would solve the problem of people who dont have a organ – ie kidney, liver, heart, etc and that of the black market where organs are sold for thousands

Richard answers:

The starting point would be an opt-out instead of an opt-in card
i.e it would be assumed you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are willing to be a donor unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a card specifically opting-out of being one

Secondly you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r wishes should be respected on death. At present on death you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r body belongs to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relatives, so they can ignore you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r wishes if they want.
As organs have a limited “life” after death it should not be up to the hospitals to look for an opt-out card (or opt-in), it should be asssumed you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are willing to give organs unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relatives can prove otherwise. (e.g. Via opt-out card) and that they must do so within a specified time

Donald asks…

What are the main differences between man made sapphires and natural ones?

I am looking into getting a loose sapphire gemstone – round cut and about 1 to 1.5 carats. It is more important to me to get the size and COLOR I want than the prestige of it being “natural.” I don’t have a large budget for the stone (only a couple hundred dollars at most), which is the main reason why I can’t just go out and buy a dark blue natural sapphire. My question is what are the major differences between natural and man made sapphires (besides price) – what are the pros and cons of both. I am worried about one being more breakable than the other or less scratch resistant or something. Also, does anyone know if some good websites for sapphires? I have a large list of web sites that sell natural ones, but I haven’t found any web sites that sell man made ones (are man made sapphires called something special? – and please don’t be a smartass and say “colored crystal” or “cubic zirconium”.

Thank you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势!
I meant zirconia, sorry – typo durring the spell check
Or would a man made/lab sapphire just be a simple cubic zirconia???

Richard answers:

Synthetic sapphires are lab-created either by flame fusion method or flux-melt method or less commonly, by hydrothermal method. They have the same physical, optical and chemical properties as natural sapphires. Some lab-created sapphires may be included, although most are clean. Since they have the same properties as naturals, they will not scratch or chip more easily than a natural stone.

Prices of synthetic sapphires depend on the method of synthesis used. In general, FF sapphires are mouch more affordable than FM sapphires. (Depending on the quality and color, FF’s can cost as little as a few cents a carat and FM’s can cost over a hundred a carat.) I found a 3ct sapphire (allegedly hydrothermal) on Ebay for 0.99cts! Here’s the link http://cgi.ebay.com/16-HUGE-STUNNING-SYNTHETIC-HYDROTHERMAL-SAPPHIRE-3-CTS_W0QQitemZ270022323619QQihZ017QQcategoryZ282QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

As a gemstone enthusiast and a gemologist, my advice is to buy natural! There is just NO comparision. Why buy a cold, clinical man-made substitute when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can own a rare stone made by mother earth and enjoy all the romance, mystery and adventure that comes with it?

Good blue sapphires are a pure saturated blue or violet-blue with a even tone. If clean and well-cut, these will fetch a premium in the market and can cost a bomb! However, lighter blue sapphires can be just as lovely, can be lively and clean, and best of all – will fit into you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r budget quite nicely.

BTW, natural sapphires aren’t just blue! They come in almost every color of the rainbow. If a good stone in the blue variety is beyond you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r budget, why not opt for an equally pretty pink, orange, yellow, purple or violet? There is even a rare color-changing variety!

John asks…

How much cap room does each NBA team have?

I can not find a list that tells me how much available cap space each team has.

I would like to know every teams available cap space, not just miami and the nicks, those where the only 2 I could really find any information on.

Richard answers:

New York Knicks
Maximum cap room: 2.06 MCs

New Jersey Nets
Maximum cap room: 1.81 MCs

Chicago Bulls
Maximum cap room: 1.76 MCs
Dumping James Johnson, Taj Gibson, Chris Richard and Rob Kurz would not generate the needed cap room — the cap holds associated with the four vacated roster spots would consume much of the cap room that would be freed by their departure.

Miami Heat
Maximum cap room: 1.67 MCs (with Wade re-signed); 2.64 MCs (if Wade leaves)

Even moving Michael Beasley and Mario Chalmers for nothing wouldn’t create enough cap room to sign all three star free agents at the full maximum.

Los Angeles Clippers
Maximum cap room: 1.02 MCs

Sacramento Kings
Maximum cap room: 0.93 MCs

What needs to happen to get to this amount? Renounce all free agents.

What can they do to get more? The Kings lost their ability to sign a maximum free agent when they traded for Samuel Dalembert earlier this month. Another $1.21 million needs to come off the books to clear enough cap room. This could be accomplished by removing Omri Casspi’s $1.25 million salary.

Milwaukee Bucks
Maximum cap room: 0.92 MCs

What needs to happen to get to this amount? Renounce all free agents.

What can they do to get more? To get to one MC the Bucks need to trim another $1.37 million from the payroll. Waiving Carlos Delfino — signed for $3.5 million but guaranteed for just $500,000 — would get the job done.

Boston Celtics
Maximum cap room: 0.61 MCs

What needs to happen to get to this amount? Paul Pierce has to follow through on opting out of his contract, and the Celtics need to renounce all free agents.

What can they do to get more? They’d have to clear another $6.5 million to get to one MC. If Rasheed Wallace follows through on retirement — and forgoes his salary — then the Celtics are less than $1 million away. They could get excruciatingly close — only about $55,000 away — by waiving the non-guaranteed contracts of Tony Gaffney and Oliver Lafayette.

Washington Wizards
Maximum cap room: 0.45 MCs

What needs to happen to get to this amount? Decline Josh Howard’s team option, renounce all free agents.

What can they do to get more? By acquiring Kirk Hinrich and the rights to first-round pick Kevin Seraphin from the Bulls, the Wizards took themselves off the market for a maximum free agent. Trading Quinton Ross for Yi Jianlian further cemented their role as a team that will not be swinging for the fences this summer.

Interesting Questions About Marketing Listserv

Nancy asks…

I am an Asian who can teach English well, what is the best way to do to land a teaching job in the U.S.?

Is it still possible to get a sponsor if I am outside the U.S.? Is there any website that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 might want to suggest. Thanks.

Richard answers:

Each state deparment of education has a website. Each state has different requirements for teachers and for which subjects there is a need for teachers. Generally needed is a bachelor’s degree with a prescribed number of education courses, student teaching experience, a teacher’s license from that state (each state is different and they generally don’t recepricate). An exam is usually required to get a teaching license. Contact the state department of education for any state that interests you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and see if there is a need for ESL (also known as TEFL, ENL, teacher of ELL (English language learners) etc.
I know that ESL teachers have several listservs–you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 might google ESL and see if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can find one. I’m sure they can answer you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r question better than I can. There is not much of a need for teachers of English to speakers of English–in fact, there is more of a glut on the market.

Richard answers:

Primary Sources
Definition:

Primary sources are original materials. They are from the time period involved and have not been filtered through interpretation or evaluation. Primary sources are original materials on which other research is based. They are usually the first formal appearance of results in physical, print or electronic format. They present original thinking, report a discovery, or share new information.

Note: The definition of a primary source may vary depending upon the discipline or context.

Examples include:

Artifacts (e.g. Coins, plant specimens, fossils, furniture, tools, clothing, all from the time under study);
Audio recordings (e.g. Radio programs)
Diaries;
Internet communications on email, listservs;
Interviews (e.g., oral histories, telephone, e-mail);
Journal articles published in peer-reviewed publications;
Letters;
Newspaper articles written at the time;
Original Documents (i.e. Birth certificate, will, marriage license, trial transcript);
Patents;
Photographs
Proceedings of Meetings, conferences and symposia;
Records of organizations, government agencies (e.g. Annual report, treaty, constitution, government document);
Speeches;
Survey Research (e.g., market surveys, public opinion polls);
Video recordings (e.g. Television programs);
Works of art, architecture, literature, and music (e.g., paintings, sculptures, musical scores, buildings, novels, poems).
Web site.

Secondary Sources
Definition:

Secondary sources are less easily defined than primary sources. Generally, they are accounts written after the fact with the benefit of hindsight. They are interpretations and evaluations of primary sources. Secondary sources are not evidence, but rather commentary on and discussion of evidence. However, what some define as a secondary source, others define as a tertiary source. Context is everything.

Note: The definition of a secondary source may vary depending upon the discipline or context.

Examples include:

Bibliographies (also considered tertiary);
Biographical works;
Commentaries, criticisms;
Dictionaries, Encyclopedias (also considered tertiary);
Histories;
Journal articles (depending on the disciple can be primary);
Magazine and newspaper articles (this distinction varies by discipline);
Monographs, other than fiction and autobiography;
Textbooks (also considered tertiary);
Web site (also considered primary).
Return to top

Tertiary Sources
Definition:

Tertiary sources consist of information which is a distillation and collection of primary and secondary sources.

Almanacs;
Bibliographies (also considered secondary);
Chronologies;
Dictionaries and Encyclopedias (also considered secondary);
Directories;
Fact books;
Guidebooks;
Indexes, abstracts, bibliographies used to locate primary and secondary sources;
Manuals;
Textbooks (also be secondary).

Nexavar for hepatocellular carcinoma?

Do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 know anyone who had Liver Cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma) and used Nexavar? What was the result? how effective it was?

Richard answers:

This is a fairly new drug called Sorafenib and marketed as Nexavar. It is on fast track status for the treatment of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (primary liver cancer). Sorafenib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor that was approved by the FDA for treatment for GIST and Renal cell carcinoma (Kidney cancer) and has been considered successful. You can look over the Clinical Trial results to see how patients with liver cancer have responded. It its on a fast track status because of the positive results from Stage III Clinical Trials for this disease.

http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/558023

One of the best ways to check information like this is to join a support group. Many times there will be patients there who have more information about this treatment. You can join the ACOR mailing list and ask patients:

James asks…

Any tips for a new vegan?

I have decided to become a vegan. I have been a vegetarian for 4 months and I have been thinking about being a vegan for awhile and I’ve decided I’m gonna try it. Any tips I should know? Thanks!!

Richard answers:

1. Think about what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 like to eat!
I read once that people basically have 11 staple meals they rotate between. For me, it’s about three. I like avocado maki, english muffins, and burritos. So, to start you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself off, think of several meals you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 like that are or can be made vegan. You like spaghetti? That’s one dinner right there! Make a list of these things and keep writing them down as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 think of them. Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 see all the stuff you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 CAN eat, instead of just what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can’t, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will feel capable of success!

2. Know you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r shops
Ethnic markets are a great source of vegetarian and vegan staples. Soy meat, tofu, lentils, beans, peas and vegetables are all available at a reasonable price. Another shop you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need to familiarize you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself with is you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r health food store. Supplements, protein powders and superfoods can be useful additions to a plant-based diet. Last but not least, learn to love you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r local farmers market. Not all cities have them, but if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can stand the crowded Sunday mornings, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will achieve great savings on fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables.

3. Know you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r supplements
Some doctors and nutritionists recommend that vegetarians (and vegans in particular) supplement their diets with vitamin B-12, vitamin D, and certain essential fatty acids. There are some great oils on the market targeted to people consuming plant-based diets, including Udo’s Choice and Okinawa Omega.

Many vegetarians or vegans (or people who want to be healthy in general) also choose to include superfoods in their diet, as they are good sources of B-vitamins, calcium, antioxidants and minerals, and give a great energy boost with their high nutritional value.

Spirulina, maca, mesquite, raw cacao, lecithin and other powders can be added to smoothies, while raw nuts and seeds, flax, hemp, Inca berries, and mulberries, make great, nutrient-packed snacks.

4. Learn to cook!
If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can cook, any vegan dream can come true! The best way to learn to cook is just to try recipes. I happen to be a fantastical cook and it’s just because I used to hustle threw cookbook after cookbook as a kid. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 already know you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r way around the kitchen, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a headstart—now you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can use new recipes to learn you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r way around the vegan kitchen! Vegweb has a ton of recipes and really, there are recipes all over the internet! Vegan bakers be blogging! Shit, even Vegansaurus has recipes! Besides that, there are SO MANY amazing cookbooks. Go to the store, pick out a few. Or don’t go to the bookstore—as soon as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 become vegan, all you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relatives will probably start giving you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 vegan cookbooks for every holiday. You’ll be set! I got Veganomicon as a gift and it’s great. Usually I go for cookbooks with BIG PICTURES. That’s pretty much how I decide what I want to cook: whatever looks pretty.

5. Get a posse!
Join listservs (do those still exist?? I don’t know, I’m not a nerd and already have plenty of friends, OK?), Yahoo groups, meet-ups, comment on local blogs, post on Craigslist, whatever it takes! I was reading Vegansaurus long before I was writing for it and it helped me out a lot when I first got to SF. Most cities have vegan groups to join or blogs where you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can meet friends. And find community in the forums on sites like VegWeb and the PPK. There’s power in numbers, and they always have you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r back. Unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re in a fight about what’s the best vegan cheese and then shit can get really real, real fast. Don’t cut the omnis out of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r life (besides who are the next vegans if not those same omnis?) but it’s always nice to be able to turn to other vegans when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need a hug. Except me, I’m not into touching strangers!

Take heart knowing that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have decided become a part of the solution instead of part of the problem. Your new plant-based diet reduces you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r carbon footprint, and is kinder and more compassionate towards all living beings. Good luck with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r new choice!

Sandy asks…

Where do I find an endometriosis specialist?

I have been to many gyno’s, but all reccomend more surgery. I want my health back, and they want me to have kids. I’m not worried about kids, I’m worried about pain

Richard answers:

Don’t waste you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r time with a regular OBGYN, who thinks more about delivering babies than treating women with Endo, and when he or she does treat Endo, they think the best way is to partially vaporize it and then stick the patient on Lupron. Also don’t bother with the Lupron-maker sponsored “Doctor Discussion” guide touted above – all that does is tell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 how to ask you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r doc for Lupron and give Takeda Abbott Pharmaceuticals you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r personal and private info. No, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need a REAL Endo specialist. Few and far between, but they exist. You will probably need to travel to one, as there are only about 10 in the U.S., but that’s what we need to do to treat our disease FOR REAL and feel better. Start with these guys:

Drs. Albee & Sinervo @500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 the Center for Endometriosis Care
www.centerforendo.com

Dr. Redwine
www.endometriosistreatment.org

Dr. Cook
www.drcook.com

Dr. Robbins
www.endoexcision.com

Also join these groups and ask for referrals (they are free, private groups):

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/erc

http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/EndoDocs

See also:

http://www.geocities.com/endovictims/endodocs.html

Help IS out there. Don’t waste you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r time anymore on repeat surgeries and drug therapies that don’t do anything except give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 side effects.

Good luck and remember you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re not alone!

And PS, don’t waste you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r time with the pharmaceutical-company sponsored spam advertised above. That so-called guide is a thinly veiled advertisement from the makers of Lupron that does little more than provide you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r personal information to them and explain to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 how to market Lupron to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r doctor for them. For an unbiased pain journal, guide, etc., see the ERC’s website and their free files on their listserv as linked above.

Interesting Questions About Email Address List India

Lizzie asks…

Can someone from India hacked into you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r email just by knowing you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r email?

I’m not rascist I swear. I love making friends from around the world, and I enjoy talkng to people from India but why are they always so eager to get my email address? Just curious why???
thanks everyone for answering.

Richard answers:

Yes there is a high likelyhood. India has the highest number of university graduates in the world. There are a lot of smart people there, so they just need the inclination. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have given that to them it is possible.
There are host of vulnerabilities that mean they do not need to know you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r password have a look at the recent hotmail issue with 10000 usernames and password posted on the internet (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/securityfix/2009/10/trove_of_hotmail_passwords_pos.html) There have been others like this with varying webmail providers, even internal ones. The list of vulnerabilities are bigger than the list of providers.

Edit: sorry not all doom and gloom. The best fix is not give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r real email address out to many people except friends and colleagues. Use a different address for other stuff, just create a new one at hotmail or gmail (don’t use the same password though as if they break into one account they will break into all), use disposable addresses for forums etc like http://10minutemail.com/10MinuteMail/index.html
Finally to manage all these accounts use a password database like keepass ( http://keepass.info/ ) ,it is free and there are versions for lots of operating systems
The reason they probably wanted it was to spam you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 or, steal you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r identity for the little they could get.

Thomas asks…

How can i remove the list of cell and STD numbers dialed which appeared in my BSNL telephone bill?

This is about the BSNL Telephone in india.The STD and cell numbers dialed will be displayed on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r bill with dialed date,time,year and month.

Richard answers:

It is obvious that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t want someone to know where and whom you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ve been calling. Not sure if BSNL will actually remove those entries upon you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r request. But I can tell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 that in order to prevent this from happening in the future, go paperless. Ask BSNL to send you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 e-statements to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r pritate email address. This way, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have total control of who sees it and who doesn’t.

I think everyone has hit on distribution as a pretty good strategy of getting exposure. However, one of the strategies we use is making sure we use the right keywords in the video title and in the meta section; words that people actually search for. Therefore, when people look for those phrases in Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc., then you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re likely to show up in the vertical search results.

Interesting Questions About Email Marketing List Rental

Linda asks…

Where can I look for an apartment in Stockholm, Sweden?

I am a student who may be going to stockholm, Sweden to study. I want to get an understanding of the types of apartments available to me and the cost. I also want to potentially start looking for an apartment. Where can I find one? Is there a website I browse for apartments close to Stockholm University?

Any information is welcomed. Also I wouldn’t mind contacting someone by email to ask questions about studying and living in Sweden. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are willing to answer my questions please leave you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r email below. I appreciate any help.

Thanks!

Richard answers:

You should start with SSSB, which have studio apartments for students around Stockholm. Get in the queue now though, the waiting list is months long (and years for the city center). It should say something that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to log on every 3 months to keep you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r place in line. The apartments they offer are usually much cheaper than non-student apartments.

Http://www.sssb.se/index.php?page=500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势_eng

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ll be an exchange student, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can apply to Kista Apartments:

http://www.kistastudentbostader.se/?lang=_en

There are a couple more sites with student apartments, but only in Swedish:

http://www.svenskabostader.se/

http://www.proventum.se/

The housing situation in Stockholm is very difficult for renters because there are more people living there than there are apartments to rent. You’ll need an apartment until you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r place in line comes up though. First-hand contracts are extremely difficult to get, the waiting list in the city center is over 10 years long and up to a year in the suburbs. Competition is high on 2nd-hand contracts too, and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can’t expect to get a rental near the university until you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get a student apartment (which is ok, because public transport is quick and very good).

But here are a few sites for 2nd-hand rentals.. 1:a/etta is a studio, rum is a room in shared housing and 2:a is a one-bedroom. Google Translate gives a readable translation.

Http://www.blocket.se/stockholm?q=&cg=3020&w=1&st=u&mre=&ros=&roe=&ss=&se=&ca=11&md=th

http://www.andrahand.se/

You have to pay a fee to use BostadDirekt, but many people have said it’s the quickest way to a 2nd-hand rental, with fewer “black market” deals.

Http://www.bostaddirekt.com/

I’ll answer you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r questions, just email me through my profile.

John, looks like you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are confused among lot of websites in the market today. Don’t worry buddy. I am a vacation property owner here in Kissimmee and I am also listed on all big guns. I got an email from a site called Vacation Rental Planners and I added my property for a low fee of $99 and to be honest, I am pleased with the results. Try them. They also refer some more good sites. Really good.

Ruth asks…

Are there business available that will professionally handle the renting out of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r house?

If I ever get orders to move away (usually have only 6 months to pack up and leave if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 ever get orders), I’d like to rent out my house if I decide to buy one within the next 2 months. I don’t plan to leave and I’ve already been stationed here for 6 years but there’s always that possibility of me getting orders. So, are there businesses out there that will professionally handle the renting out of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 while you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re gone?

Richard answers:

Yes, talk to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r local realtor. They don’t just sell houses. They also help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 rent them. They have rental agreements, handle tenant selection, take professional photos to list you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r property, etc, etc. They may not be able to do it completely without you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势, but if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 sign all the agreements up front, the rest can be done via mail, email, and fax.
Whatever you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 do, don’t repeat my mistake. Check the background of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r tenants. They may seem as nice people at first, but trust me, when they stop paying rent and trash you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r house, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 wish you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 did a background screening. I usually use this website: www.TenantBackgroundSearch.com and I have been pretty happy with it. I don’t work for them! Oh, and just tell the realtor to include it when marketing you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r house. The tenant will then have to pay for the background check.

How much does a play cost?

I have to make a budget for my theatre class as if I was running the play and I need to know how much the publicity would cost. I have that the royalties for the play would be $50 and the scripts would cost $260 but I need to know any other costs involved with plays. Please help!!! This is due this week! Please write down any costs you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can think of like this: (name of what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are spending on, ex. Royalties)-(amount of money spent, ex. $50). Thanks!

Richard answers:

The cost of producing a play varies wildly, all the way from all volunteer performances costing $0, to Broadway shows costing tens of millions of dollars.

Here’s list of some of the things you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ll need to budget for:

Royalties (or writers)

Scripts / Scores / Librettos

Venue Rental (both rehearsal and performance)

Personnel including Director, Asst. Director(s), Music Director(s), Stage Manager, ASM(s), Crew Members (Stage, Venue, Dressers, Board Ops, etc.), Designers (Lighting, Costume, Set, Sound, Makeup, Wig), Choreographer(s), Front of House (Box Office, Ushers), Musician(s), Technical Director, Dialect / Vocal Coach(s), Casting Director, Marketing Director(s), Actors, and any number of assistants to any of the aforementioned personnel.

Set, Costumes, Properties, Lighting Instruments, etc.

Printing for Programs, Tickets, etc.

Advertising and Marketing (e.g. Posters, Commercials, Web Site Design and Hosting, Fliers, Mailers, Mass Email 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势)

Insurance

Union Fees (if producing under an AEA Contract)

Consumables (food, gunpowder, a vase that is broken every show, etc.)

Administrative Costs (Office Supplies)

Maintenance Costs (e.g. Cleaning supplies)

Lastly, resident theatre companies that produce a season of shows face a whole host of other costs, as they maintain a permanent business. Large scale, stand alone shows have different legal fees associated with incorporation.

Obviously small shows won’t need everything on the list. Look carefully at the show you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r are producing, what it requires, where you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are performing it, and who you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will need to hire. Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have that list, then start adding up you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r costs and compare it to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r budget. I personally have produced a show for as low as $75, and been involved in shows with $200,000 spent on costumes alone.

Pane for bluetooth under system preferences to find and sync up you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r phone to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r mac. All this, assuming they will even talk to each other at all.

If all else fails, and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r phone has a slot for a mini-sd card..get one! That’s what I do. You move all you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r pictures to that, or just choose the card to store the images in the first place. Get a card reader, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can find them for under $10, and connect it to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r USB port to read the card (the mini SD cards come with a full sized SD ‘adapter’). Then just drag the pictures over when the card mounts on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r desktop.

Sharon asks…

What is the difference between windows vista 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 edition and premium edition?

My usage is basically for internet surfing, making multimedia movies, playing games.
Shall i take windows vista premium for making movies from my vidoes or i purchase 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 edition and buy some other movie making software.

Richard answers:

1.vista 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 basic require 512 MB RAM.
Vista 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 premium require 1GB RAM.
(runs on 512 MB too, but all features won’t be supported!!)
2.VHB (Vista 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 Basic) require min 32 MB graphics memory.
VHP (Vista 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 Premium) require 128 MB.
3.VHP has build-in DVD burner facility,
xbox 360 connection support,
windows games explorer for online gaming support,
newer versions of movie maker and media player 11.
4. Windows aero experience (some extremely good looking stupid feature.) available in VHP but not VHB. Flip 3d, sidebar and gadgets etc are some more in the list…

In simple words, while VHB is for simple 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 use like browsing the Internet, using email or viewing photos..
While VHP has additional entertainment and media support like Windows Media Center.

So since you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ve making multimedia movies is basic need VHP would be better than VHB for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. But again you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can always find better and suitable 3rd party softwares for the same. So basically if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 know some good software for the same, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can buy simply VHB and instal that software. But if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re not sure about compatibility (many of the xp softwares are useless for vista!!) you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 better go for VHP to be on the safer side.

Robert asks…

How to get my internet based business more action?

I just started my web-based business 2 months ago, and am patiently waiting for it to take off. I have been researching ways to increase traffic to my site and don’t have the budget for buying ranks on yahoo seaches or any of that software that is out there. Besides real-time advertisement ie Word of mouth, flyers etc. What else can I do?
I accidentally did that on some of my other postings then learned that it was a violation of YahooASK rules, so no, I will not list my website
Okay-details on the website: it involves admissions consulting, reviewing applications and editing essays, resumes etc. Most of my friends say that the site is great so I am not worried about the setup or presentation– I need advice on how to promote my website without buying all of the extra stuff that is offered on the internet.

Richard answers:

“If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 build it, they will come” is not necessarily true on the Web. Putting a website up is one thing, but getting visitors to come to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site is another. The process becomes even more difficult if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have limited resources to market you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business.

You can try pay per click programs such as Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo Search Marketing http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com – though the key is to carefully track you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r ROI and which keywords actually perform well

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get the visitors you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can with the best products you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can possibly offer. Your content is you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r best advertisement – if visitors love you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get for FREE!

Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r niche. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have good content, other websites will gladly link to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and offer you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r topic area.

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

You get exposure for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business; establishes you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 as an authority in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r field, and allows you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to get backlinks for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website. If 50 websites publish you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r article and it contains a link back to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website, then you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 easily get 50 links from a single article.

Steven asks…

How do I make a store where people can download products?

My company deals exclusively with software, and I was wondering how I could make a store for these items. It needs to be free or very low cost.

Richard answers:

There are some great cheap solutions for this. Basically you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 just need a web host that already includes one click install of an online store.

I recommend one of these: http://www.webhostinglist.org

iPage is currently on sale for just $2.95/month!
The full price for one year of hosting is $35/year.

Their plan includes:
Unlimited disk space
Unlimited bandwidth
Free domain name

They have one of the most popular hosting platform, which currently hosts over a million websites. They’re also one of the oldest hosting companies, founded in 1998.

They include multiple (free, built in) ways to create an online store. You can:

1. Configure the Ecommerce Widget in the Drag and Drop Site Builder
Their Drag and Drop Site Builder has an ecommerce widget that allows you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to build a small store.

2. Integrate the Drag and Drop Site Builder with ShopSite
ShopSite allows you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to add “Add to Cart” and “Buy Now” buttons to any site, including a site you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ve created with Adobe Dreamweaver, WordPress, and the Drag and Drop Site Builder. Adding these buttons is as simple or as feature-rich as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 wish to make it.

3. Create a Store with ShopSite
ShopSite also allows you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to create an online store. You can link to the store from a site you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ve already created, or you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can build you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r whole website via ShopSite as a stand alone store.
ShopSite offers a wide range of features to help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 build and manage you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r store, including tax, shipment, payment, and order management options. You can also build an email list for email marketing opportunities, send automated thank you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 notes, and more.

4. Create an Advanced Store with osCommerce
This flexible open source shopping cart offers more customization capabilities, but it’s also more difficult to use. It’s available for one click installation via SimpleScripts.

George asks…

How do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 text a picture on an iPhone 3G?

I have the iphone 3G and I just got it,
so I don’t really understand how to send a picture message. When I click on the picture, my only options are, set as wallpaper, apply to contact, or email picture. Is there any way, I can just text message it to someone? Thanks in advanced!

Richard answers:

Actually you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can send a picture to another cellular phone from iPhone. Open the picture and select email picture. Send the picture to the correct address listed below based on the cellular company the receiver uses.

As far as Apple allowing picture messages (MMS) in the future, don’t count on it. Pictures could contain viruses and since the iPhone is a computer with a phone feature built into it and no firewall or anti virus software, it would be very vulnerable to viruses sent via MMS if that was allowed.

Email addressses to use when emailing picture to other cellular phones:
