Carol asks…

How do I remove my company’s domain from Yahoo spam blacklist?

The company I’m working for recently bought over a domain name for their new upcoming startup. We’ve been testing sending our user account verification emails to popular email services, including Yahoo! Mail. However, it somehow ends up being in the Spam folder. How do I contact Yahoo in order to help us rectify this problem?

Richard answers:

Yahoo! Mail has become more aggressive in its acceptance of SMTP connections and denies connections by IP address when these connections do not conform to Internet standard practices. To continue uninterrupted access and prioritized delivery, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should ensure that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r email address lists are well maintained. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are conforming to these standards, then these policies should only affect you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 positively. We anticipate improvements in delivery times and in available connections.

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 consistently see 451 SMTP error codes you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should review you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r email practices and policies, especially the following:

Remove email addresses that bounce. Bounces are an indication that the mail could not be delivered because the user does not exist, no longer exists, or is unable to accept you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r email. List managers should remove addresses that generate bounces. A particularly popular technique for managing bounces is to use VERP to identify the recipient address that has failed.
Examine you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r retry policies. Messages that receive permanent errors, such as emails sent to accounts that do not exist or are over quota, should not be retried. Permanent errors that are retried increase the likelihood that delivery will not receive the priority it deserves.
Pay attention to the responses from our SMTP servers.The SMTP protocol defines response codes that tell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r server what to do next. In particular, our server will send “500″ SMTP response codes to indicate problems that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need to investigate. For example, if an email is sent to an invalid recipient, our servers will respond with a “500″ range SMTP code, indicating a permanent error. Large numbers of emails sent to non-existant accounts may be indicative of a systemic problem. Many companies following best email list practices treat email addresses that have received a “500″ range SMTP codes specially. For instance, many companies place these addresses into a special queue that tests for continued bounces after longer and longer periods of time. This helps them maximize delivery to email addresses that exist and minimize wasted bandwidth costs.
Don’t send unsolicited email. Make sure that all email addresses are confirmed with an opt-in process that ensures the recipient wants to receive you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r mail. Obtaining permission from a third party to send an email does not ensure the email is solicited. Probably the best way to confirm an email addresses before adding them to a mailing list is by using closed-loop confirmation (sometimes referred to as “full confirmation,” “full verification,” “confirmed voluntary subscription,” or “double opt-in”). In this process, after you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 receive a subscription request, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 send a confirmation email to that address which requires some affirmative action before that email address is added to the mailing list. Since only the true owner of that email address can respond, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will know that the true owner has truly intended to subscribe and that the address is valid.
Provide a method of unsubscribing from you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r list in each mail you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 send.
Ensure that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r mail servers are not open relays, and that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r servers attempt to detect and deny connections to open proxies. At a minimum, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r SMTP servers should identify the originating IP addresses that of the email and indicate this in the email headers to help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 diagnose spam problems. There are a variety of open relay testers available.
If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 conform to the above practices and are still seeing delivery problems, please fill out this form so that we can help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 diagnose you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r problem. Please do not use this form to report spam.

Charles asks…

Maketing advice for small company?

I am a recent college graduate.I have just joined a small it/multimedia company (been in business for four years) as marketing manager, there has never been marketing before (all work is from word-of-mouth). I just joined a network group but, how can I get clients with little or no cost. My boss is really putting the pressure on to perform!

Richard answers:

You didn’t mention if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 had a website.

1) Start or Review the existing site
2) Get you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r marketing presentation in text form for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site: 1 page, 3 or 4 paragraphs, 3 to 4 sentences each. Keep it simple, copy is important, but when starting emphasize you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r offering. Don’t worry about graphics too much at this point.
3) Scan for key words and phrases that would attracted you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r target audience (do a brainstorming session on who you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r ideal customer is….use real names and positions from you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r existing customer set)
4. Make sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site title, meta tags and key words match you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r text.
5. Add Google Analytics to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site (if it isn’t already there)
6. Open a Google Adsense Account only up a few dollars in $10 to $100 will do to start. Create a very simple campaign with the 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’s name, and URL and just a few key words. This will get the site indexed. Limit the geography close to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r shop if appropriate. Think about using the alternative Map ad if appropriate (more expensive). At this point don’t waste advertising dollars. Look at this as R&D for marketing. Advertising and big campaigns should follow you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r proof of concepts.
7. Do some posts on free Directories (Yahoo), Forums, Social networks and Digg (if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want and it is appropriate).
8. Put a classified for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r area on Crag’s list.
9. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t already have add Paypal and Google Check out. You can use the “buy now” function if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t have a shopping cart and even if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 do have one….
10. Products can be listed on Google’s Froogle. Just do a few.

And on and on and on. Keep adding bells and whistles until you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have the best marketing engine in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r area for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r industry.

This starter set will give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 more information than most people can handle initially. (there are lots of other metrics which you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 use but as a one horse shop starting out remember you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have get some work done and all input and no output is not good for the business or you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势). The initial information can give some nearly immediate insight into what people think of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r offerings. Either confirming the conventional wisdom or pointing out new opportunities. Put the salesman’s phone number and email on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site and posts. Then you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will find out if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are a marketing manager or the salesman will a title (which is quite OK very common in small businesses). If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are the salesman, get an Open Source CRM or SFA package from SourceForge for free (if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 or you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r company has the technical skills to download and install..not as easy as some would like you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to believe..) or cheaply hosted if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are all alone from $9.95 a month. Start filling the system with prospects, set up campaigns and use bulk email on an opt in basis (keep the emails small to run you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r campaigns thru be very reasonable with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r contact to the prospects. Remember, this is marketing not sales).

Very cheap, very easy to run, some assembly required. But, the starter set is scalable to play at a reasonably high level once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get it going. You are lucky…getting graphics help should not be hard for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. That is the biggest problem I have… Good luck.

Joseph asks…

Opt In / Opt Out?

Imagine the new opt in law has come into force.
Now imagine you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have been teribbly injured in an accident.
You are lying in hospital and may or may not survive the treatment that the hospital has to give.
Along comes a doctor/surgeon/manager, who says to the medical team that the treatment and after care which may save you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r life will cost the hospital trust about lb150,000. However, the organs (which could by law be harvested from you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r body), would reduce the waiting lists by 10 and help the hospital achieve it’s targets.
Are they still going to remain unbiased in their decision?

I honestly believe that the best way is to opt out (if the law is introduced) at least there will be no profit in not treating you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势.

What do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 believe and why?

I also heard a suggestion today that people could have either yes or no tattoe’s onto the soles of their feet (just to make sure the hospitals dont make any mistakes)
Hi Jomamo

I could go in to detail of my own experience with hospital doctors but wont, suffice it to say, the medical proffession (especially registrars and senior surgeons) are cold calculating people and would not hesitate to heed cost before compassion.
Hi anne s

As a smoker of 42 years, I have paid far more in taxes than you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are ever likely to do. I am just as much entitled (if not more) than the next guy.
By the way, would all of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 who screamed for a smoking ban be willing to accept an organ from an ex-smoker (oh yes, there are still some usable organs in these disgusting smoke filled bodies)

Yes, I thought you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 would

Spot On!
Kuta

The operations carried out on elderly people are done to meet government targets and for nothing else.
Hospital trusts are forced by the government to spread their treatments over all sections of the population.
You dont honestly believe that some hospital manager wuld sanction hip replacements etc in the elderly, if he/she had the option not to do them ?

Richard answers:

I think the proposition of this whole ‘Opt in/Opt out’ law is ridiculous. People say it is not taking away our choices, but it is. We should give consent for people taking away our body parts when we die, not have written proof we want our bodies to remain intact. It’s all flipped on it’s head.

Of course doctors and surgeons are going to be biased if it comes into force. You die, they save money and look lovely in front of everyone because they gave new organs. Hurrah for them!

And before anyone says anything, I am pro-donating. As in I want to donate my organs when I snuff it. I just think the prospect of this new law is unfair and absurd.

Interesting Questions About Marketing List Brokers

Lizzie asks…

where can I buy lists of companies that have keyman insurance ?

I’m looking to buy data for a marketing campaign. I want to target companies based in the UK that have bought KEYMAN insurance (a type of insurance policy) in the last 2 years. Any ideas ?

Richard answers:

I doubt that any insurance company would sell information on their clients or customers who have purchased key man insurance. It would violate the implied confidential nature of the relationship between insured and insurer. Most companies or individuals do not want others to know about their personal information. You could contact some list brokers or trade associations who may be able to help, but I have my doubts that the information would be available outside of the company involved.

Daniel asks…

How do I become a stock broker for a big company?

I’m planning on becoming a stock broker, I’m going to University to get my MBA and then I’m planning on taking my series 7 test. How can I get a job as a broker in a big company, do I start off as a intern then work my way up?
Thanks

Richard answers:

In the US – You need to be an employee of a Broker/Dealer so they can sponsor you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 in order to become a licensed stock broker. You can not take the series 7 unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are sponsored

Most larger firms want college graduates, but it is not really necessary nor really a requirement but many firms like it and make it their requirement. Bank broker/dealers usually want all the sales reps to be college graduates.

Your college major is not important, (No courses in the academic world prepares you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to be a broker). But since you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r coming into the world of Finance, some of the more helpful majors would be Finance, Accounting, Economics or Statistics,
You should be good at math and have a decent idea about the stock market.
You should be good at selling, and it would help if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have an outgoing personality.
So if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势‘re good at sales, or have a good sales background in place of a college degree, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re part way there.
Try to get with any major brokerage firm they will put you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 through an in-house training program, which is primarily getting you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 ready to take the necessary test for licenses. You will need a Series 7 which is a General Securities Brokers test, and a Series 63 which is just for state approvals.
Most brokerage firms, except bank B/Ds, will put you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 on salary and once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have passed the test, they will slowly take you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 off salary and put you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 on commission basis pay out. Banks will usually keep you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 on salary but no commissions.

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r choice, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re always better going to work for a regular B/D rather than a bank you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will learn, faster, better and the proper way of how the industry works. As a broker for a B/D you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can always find another B/D that will hire you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 or at the worse, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can always work for a bank. But if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re Bank B/D trained and licensed, it’s very difficult to go work for a regular B/D unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have years of experience or believe you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can bring a “big book”

Get you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r resmue out and hit the streets, call on every broker/dealer in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r area. Build a mailing list of sales manager or partners of firms, then do a mass mailing with phone call follow-ups.
There’s a big in the library Reference sections called “Broker Dealers of North America”, it list most broker dealers in North America. They are listed in alphabetical order within states.

Good luck

EDDIE W – you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have no idea what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are talking about and no experience in the securities industry, if no one wants Reps why are they in big demand by the major firms who still pay big up front money to get them, who do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 think help distribute new issues and who work firm’s inventories, especially in the fixed income areas. It would be better if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 understood the business before you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r responses especially in the investment area

Carol asks…

Is it easy to get hired as a realty agent? Are the companies take in anyone who applies?

I just passed the realty agent exam and now needed to be listed with a broker in order to be officially licensed and begin business. But I got mixed info on how easy/difficult it is to ger hired by brokers….so is it true that they basically take anyone who passes the exam and applies? Or, they just as picky as all other employer?

Richard answers:

It’s not hard, just be aware of who you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 go with, as some of them make you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 pay to have a desk, advertising, cards, and a mentor. Yes, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to pay for a mentor in some places, they won’t let you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 sell without this “training”. In such a bad real estate market, maybe you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should take this on as a part time thing until the market gets better. Not much is moving in NJ and foreclosures are up 68% from last year. I don’t mean to scare you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势, but he was very successful until the market bottomed out.

Betty asks…

What is it called when a real estate broker takes a sale on a 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 from another broker of a different company?

I had a real estate broker under contract for selling my 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. Another broker from another firm who convinced me that my broker was selling too high, not the right ads…etc. and to “fire’ her and hire not him but his co-worker so that he could get the 20% fee in the house sale.

I think the term is “crossing over” or something like that.

Richard answers:

Do NOT use this other broker. You know why? Because that broker has already broken the law and is not someone you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should consider dealing with. ANY agent knows that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 cannot legally approach a listing that is still actively on the market to try to “take over” their listing. This is unethical and every agent knows not to do it. The fact someone has approached you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and tried to discredit and embarrass you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r agent makes them someone you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 shouldn’t consider dealing with. If anything, I would report this broker/agent to the real estate board/council because it’s unethical and it gives all of us a bad reputation.

Proper etiquette is to go after a listing AFTER it has expired or has been terminated.

What this unethical, garbage broker wants is for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to list with one of his agents so he can collect a referral fee for giving you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to this agent.

James asks…

How much under the listing price did you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 pay for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r foreclosure?

I’m thinking of buying a foreclosed 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and I’m just curious as to what amound under the listing price did other buyers pay for their foreclosures? $20K less than list price? $50K?

The listing prices I’m interested in are those under $200K.

Please no comments about why I shouldn’t buy a foreclosed 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 or about inspections. I just want to know the amount under the listing price buyers paid for a 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 at that value or under.
Myrtle Beach, SC

Richard answers:

Do not EVER expect that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can buy a foreclosure below the list price. It happens sometimes, but other times foreclosures sell for considerably MORE than the listing price. As a real estate broker, I’ve dealt with more than one which ended up that way.

These days, some lenders are underpricing their REO properties in hopes of getting MANY offers. You need the assistance of a qualified buyer real estate agent, who can guide you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 concerning the actual market value of any property. Lenders are not going to sell for less than they need to sell for.

-Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a demoreel include that too.
-Attend a showcase and impress them. By showcase I do not mean scammy conventions like IMTA, IPOP, Proscout, or Best New Talent. I mean legit ones like at Actor Connection, Reel pros, Network Studios, etc.
-Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re interested in

DON’T
-Email them unless they tell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to. IT’S UNPROFESSIONAL!
-Call unless they tell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to. ALSO UNPROFESSIONAL!
-Walk in and ask for a meeting. UNPROFESSIONAL THREE!
-Sign with them if they ask for upfront money, make you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 take new photos with THEIR photographer, or take THEIR classes. Agent’s ONLY make money when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 do. Agents usually make 10% on film/tv and commercials and 20% on commercial print

Betty asks…

How to generate online traffic and sales on a very small budget?

Hi all

I have a website that is currently getting very few visitors (about 10 unique hits a day), and even less sales. Whats the best way to generate more visitors and ultimately more sales, with a budget of about lb30/month? Ive already tried some SEO tips, and already have a blog linking to the site. Im also posting in relative forums etc. Are there any more free tips I can use?

Thanks
Alex

Richard answers:

First, read my article here: http://stefangabos.blogspot.com/2008/06/one-true-answer-to-how-do-i-attract.html

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t want to read it I’ll make a short version of it here: “there is no way you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can quickly attract traffic to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 know some website owners whose websites have huge amounts of traffic and they write about you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and/or put a link back to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site on the 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 page or on any other very visible area of their website.”

You can search the Internet as much as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want and spend countless days looking for the answer. All you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will find is about how to make you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website more SEO friendly and techniques to get better rankings in pages – subscribe you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website to directories, spam on blogs/forums, use viral emailing, link exchange (i listed only some of the techniques that don’t necessary require you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to pay money).

But I know that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 meant more like “How can I attract traffic now?” not “How can people find me in Google if they search for [you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r keyword] in two years time”.

I built a website trying to help people like you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and me. It’s called 2famous and it’s hosted at http://2famo.us . Create you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r account and become the one in charge with the Internet marketing and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website promotion and increase you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r web site traffic now. 2famo.us offers a free and unique Internet marketing service: booking websites on the 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 page of 2famo.us. Over and over and over again. And of course, everything is cost-free and even ad-free. It’s not the kind of “subscribe and forget” service. But rather it encourages you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to actively promote you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r website on a daily basis by booking it on the 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 page of 2famo.us.

The website is newly launched (it launched on June 16th, 2008) but it aims to be the one solution to people like you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and me who don’t know the people in the staff of digg and we don’t hang out with the guys from techcrunch…

Check it out! And…be famous!

Mary asks…

What are some natural remedies without medicatons for sleeping at night?

I’m prescribed lunesta, but i don’t take it because it leaves a terrible taste in my mouth all day the next day. What are some better ways to help me sleep at night? I usually just end up staying up for 2 or three nights straight and then i sleep really good that next night. but i wish i could actually sleep good every night. I hate taking medicine though. so anybody know any natural remedies. I do drink coffee but only in the morning. You don’t think i should give up coffee do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势?

Richard answers:

I tried lunesta too. It did not work very well as a sleep aid, and I agree about the terrible taste. Many people should not drink coffee after 3 PM. It’s unlikely you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should give up you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r morning coffee unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are hypersensitive to caffeine.

Below is a long list I once wrote about ways to fall asleep. The list is so long that reading it might put you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to sleep :-) This list is the one that Tony I copied and pasted from me without my permission.

If nothing below works, email me and I can give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 some suggestions about over the counter and prescription meds, if necessary. However, the natural remedies below are safer and free of side effects.

What helped me a lot to fall asleep, especially when my mind was racing, was to lie in bed and listen to relaxation CDs, especially those that contain someone speaking with relaxing music in the background. The combination of voice and music is very soothing. Many of these CDs are available on eBay for very low prices.

A warm bath is a great way to help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to sleep (depending on the season). If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can’t take a bath, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself a foot massage with slightly warm massage oil, sesame oil, or castor oil from a health food store.

A helpful technique is to relax you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r body one part at a time. So you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 could relax you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r feet, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r lower legs, upper legs, moving up from you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r lower belly up to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r chest, etc., until you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r whole body is relaxed.

Of course, guided relaxation methods can help. As vividly as possible, imagine you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself at the beach, in the mountains or country, or whatever is most soothing to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势.

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have annoying thoughts that run through you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r mind when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are trying to sleep, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 might have to talk to a counselor or therapist about that. I suggest avoiding prescription sleeping pills unless nothing else helps.

There are herbs that might help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to sleep, eg, valerian root, kava kava, chamomile, hops, passion flower, skullcap. Probably, valerian root and kava kava are the best. However, what most people don’t realize is that it can take at least a few weeks for some herbs to build up in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r system before they start to work.

The minerals calcium and magnesium might be helpful for sleep. You can also try 5-HTP or melatonin. I would not take melatonin for over a month unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r doctor says it is ok.

Linda asks…

How can a 11 year old girl in Houston Texas become a famous singer?

Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to always be a singer. Now I can get singing lessons on my own. I also don’t want to be like another famous person. Can someone please held me? I don’t want to be scammed or have to pay any money. I want to become a singer as soon as possible and I know myself that it’s at least going to take 6 months.

Richard answers:

Understand that there is not one path to fame. There are practically as many paths to fame as there are famous people. That said, here are four generic techniques that would apply in many situations:
Be the best at something and the first to do something. Research and find something that no one has ever done, and do it. Look around and see what someone famous is famous for, and learn to do it better. Be a better runner, or seamstress, singer or dancer or an outstanding mother or father. Select a particular interest and become the best at it.
Try to be the worst at something. Tiny Tim became famous for singing in a falsetto voice. He was really bad. That made him different, and famous. William Hung did the same thing more recently on American Idol. He sings so badly that people flock to see him perform.
Being radically different, or being overly generous will make people notice, and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 in turn will become famous. Notice how extremely overweight women have recently become models, and are pictured on calendars and starred in hit movies, and became famous almost overnight.
Know that just by being in the right place, at the right time, can make you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 famous, maybe only for an hour, but at that time, everyone will know who you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are. Liken you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself to the fireman who pulled the child out of the well. We do not remember his name now, but at the time of the happening, everyone knew him, he was televised, and became instantly, and briefly famous.
Build upon one of the above 4 techniques to apply it in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r desired field of fame. Here is list of just some of the ways you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can become famous:
Become famous by excelling in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business interest, and be known as being outstanding in that particular field. Being a standard real estate agent, makes you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 one of many. However, being the real estate agent who sells the most 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势s in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r local market year after year you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will develop some celebrity in that particular field.
Attend an audition, get discovered to become a model or an actor. Low odds, but it might just happen!
Remember, don’t follow you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r dreams – chase them.
Use a famous platform like http://myspace.com, http://you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势tube.com, http://www.gotcast.com, to showcase you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r skills. Whether you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re a singer, actor or have other talents it helps to get noticed for what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 do and using video on the above websites will help. There have been many people that have used websites such as myspace and famous to present their skills and earn themselves famous recognition. Just make sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 really want to be famous first…

[edit] TipsTry to contact famous people in an attempt to get them interested in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r area of expertise. Do not badger them however or continue to communicate with them if they do not respond.
Contact you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r local newspapers, and interest them in doing an interview about you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势.
Ask a satisfied customer or client to refer you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to their friends and family. Give them you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business cards and ask them to pass it around
Have a genuine conviction that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 deserve to be famous. Envisage benefits to the society from you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r fame and try to highlight and project them in turn. Do not be deterred by resistance to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r efforts. Be brave and assertive.
Try to identify urgent or dire needs of people or demands of people and try to work on any one or more of them; depending upon you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r genuine interest. You may start a relevant business, write an article or a letter to editor on this issue in news papers, email to E-news papers, TV channels, write to websites with similar interests.
When the going gets tough, don’t give up!
Do what Paris Hilton & Heather Mills did, get famous for connecting you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself to heaps of celebrities, without actually doing anything to get famous in the first place.
Highlight you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r best talent or quality. Find ways to show the world what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ve got!
Being famous isn’t only nation wide. It is much easier to become “well known” in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r community. Your fame might even spread…

Interesting Questions About Email Address List Free

William asks…

What are the legal ramifications of making an email address available for public use?

We are considering making an email address open for public use so that people can create accounts on websites and list those accounts at BugMeNot.com for (more) others to use.

What liability does this open ReparateMe.com to since we are located in the USA?

Richard answers:

Hello,

I am not a lawyer.

The best case is that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 create a great free service that millions of people enjoy using.

The worst case is that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r service gets used for spamming, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 develop a poor reputation, and the service provider giving you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r servers internet access shut you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 down without notice for being a source a spam and not responding to abuse problems.

I don’t give my email address out to ANY list or websites or anything like that. I’m very careful about it. A lot of them are from other Yahoo email address. How can I make it stop?!!!

Richard answers:

You can also use a program called MailWasher. This is a free program but if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have more then one email address you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can up grade for a price. Check out www.mailwasher.net

Sandy asks…

how do I stop “fake” emails being sent to my entire address list?

I am unknowingly sending “fake” emails to my entire address list and I have started receiving them from many as well. How do I stop this?

Richard answers:

This sounds as if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a malware infection!(Sorry it’s a long answer, but it’s complicated question/solution.) This has been happening to both Yahoo and Hotmail accounts, but even more so recently. Weak passwords shorter than completely random 12+ characters are a big problem! Your address may have been found in someone else’s infected computer’s address book, and is being used by spammers. You may have opened an infected Spam mail or an attachment. Some new malware can install itself just by opening it, without even clicking a link! (It only takes a few hours to crack an 8-character password!)

If none of these mails show in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r Sent folder, it is not you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r own computer that is infected. Check there first. Deleting you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r account will NOT stop this spam – once the spammers have the address, they will continue to use it for a while.

1. Check that the alternate e-mail address is still you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rs (Change it?), and then change both you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r password AND you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r secret questions and answers. Make them unique and strong ones!
2. Run both an anti-virus and spyware/malware scan, separately – even more than one malware scan, or Trend Micro’s Housecall for an online a-v scan. (in ‘Safe Mode with Networking’ is most effective)

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free

http://www.superantispyware.com/

3. Then delete cookies, cache and history in case the malware can ‘self- reproduce’ …

Http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard

Also, for individual browsers, see:

http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser’s-Cache

http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser’s-Cookies

http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Online-Activity

4. Notify all you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r contacts NOT to open short e-mails, especially those with no subject, and definitely not to click any links. Warn them to scan for malware too, just in case. Set up an alternate ‘alias’ account to use instead. This allows you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to use a different address but still keep all saved mails and contacts and the first address active too for incoming mail.
Http://edit.yahoo..com/config/list_alias (alternate address)

Lizzie asks…

What is a better degree for getting a job, an MBA or MS in Applied Economics.?

The university isn’t anything notable, the business schools isn’t not a top 20-50 program. I have two MA degrees (history and poli sci) and the PhD rout doesn’t look like it will work out so I was thinking about going back to school and retool for the business world. Which program do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 think will look best to a potential employer? Thanks.

Richard answers:

It depends on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r career objective. The MBA is a general business degree training students for top level management positions up to CEO or for those with entrepreneurial objectives of starting their own business. MBA students study accounting, finance, marketing, management, statistics, economics, strategy, policy, and other courses. Many MBA programs offer concentrations in these and many other fields, but that amounts to only 2-3 courses in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r chosen field in the second year of study. Many students avoid a concentration and take a variety of elective subjects to gain a broader background. Most MBA programs prefer students with 2-3 years work experience after the first degree.

The Master of Science is a specialized degree in a particular field such as finance, chemistry, accounting, engineering, etc. Training students for top level staff and research positions who prefer not to get into general management. The MS typically requires an undergraduate education in the field in which you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want the MS, or a closely related field. A finance major does not get an MS in chemistry, and a biology major does not get an MS in accounting. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to specialize in a particular field other than business administration, such as finance, marketing, operations management, human resource management, or a non-business field such as public health, or public administration, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should get an MS degree in that specialization. MS programs typically do not require work experience.

Before you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 decide on an MBA program explore the Internet for information on available programs. There is a lot of information available in free public service sites. Some sites are limited to specific countries, such as Germany, UK, or Australia. Some list a small number of select schools, while others may include more than 2,000 MBA programs listed worldwide. You can find the program that best fits you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. You can search for programs by location (US, Europe, Far East, etc.), by concentration (finance, marketing, aviation management, health management, accounting, etc.), by type of program (full-time, distance learning, part-time, executive, and accelerated), and by type of degree (MBA, MS, Ph.D). In some cases you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can select you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r own criteria and preferences to get a list of universities that satisfy you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r needs.

You can find data on entrance requirements, program costs, program characteristics, joint degrees such as MBA/JD, and much more. Some sites have links to the schools’ web sites, or provide email addresses to contact schools of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r choice, and send them pre-applications. You can find lists of top schools ranked by various periodicals or ranked by starting salaries of graduates, GMAT scores, and other criteria. Generally you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should stay away from any sites that require you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to pay to get information or that promise to find scholarships for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 or ensure acceptance into a program.

Before you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 provide any personal information to a site, be sure to read their privacy policy and make sure they are not harvesting email addresses for sale.

Donna asks…

Should I get my MBA or MAcc if I eventually want to do forensic accounting?

I’m currently getting ready to graduate with my BA in Accounting. I plan on taking the CPA as well as going on to grad school. I really want to do forensic accounting and my long-term goal is to eventually get my Cr. FA. Would it be better for me to get my MBA or my MAcc??

Richard answers:

Probably the MS in accounting is more suitable, especially if they have a forensic accounting concentration. But the MBA is probably more versatile and can still get you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 into forensics. It depends on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r career objective. The MBA is a general business degree training students for top level management positions up to CEO or for those with entrepreneurial objectives of starting their own business. MBA students study accounting, finance, marketing, management, statistics, economics, strategy, policy, and other courses. Many MBA programs offer concentrations in these and many other fields, but that amounts to only 2-3 courses in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r chosen field in the second year of study. Many students avoid a concentration and take a variety of elective subjects to gain a broader background. Most MBA programs prefer students with 2-3 years work experience after the first degree.

The Master of Science is a specialized degree in a particular field such as finance, chemistry, accounting, engineering, etc. Training students for top level staff and research positions who prefer not to get into general management. The MS typically requires an undergraduate education in the field in which you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want the MS, or a closely related field. A finance major does not get an MS in chemistry, and a biology major does not get an MS in accounting. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to specialize in a particular field other than business administration, such as finance, marketing, operations management, human resource management, or a non-business field such as public health, or public administration, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should get an MS degree in that specialization. MS programs typically do not require work experience.

Before you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 decide on an MBA program explore the Internet for information on available programs. There is a lot of information available in free public service sites. Some sites are limited to specific countries, such as Germany, UK, or Australia. Some list a small number of select schools, while others may include more than 2,000 MBA programs listed worldwide. You can find the program that best fits you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. You can search for programs by location (US, Europe, Far East, etc.), by concentration (finance, marketing, aviation management, health management, accounting, etc.), by type of program (full-time, distance learning, part-time, executive, and accelerated), and by type of degree (MBA, MS, Ph.D). In some cases you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can select you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r own criteria and preferences to get a list of universities that satisfy you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r needs.

Investigate any MBA program carefully before applying. Many new ones have been started and some are worthless. What to look for: Schools’ accreditation status (AACSB accreditation or at least AACSB membership is preferred for the MBA) , tuition cost, class sizes, program length. Is the faculty mostly Ph.D.s qualified in business fields? Is the faculty permanent or part-time adjunct teachers who are not as qualified? Is the faculty well published? What are the average entrance exam scores of the students? For instance, if students take the GMAT, is their average below 550 or above 580? What are the starting salaries of graduates? Does the school have a good career placement service? How many graduates have job offers within 3 months of graduation? Do most students have 2-4 years work experience before starting the program?

You can find data on entrance requirements, program costs, program characteristics, joint degrees such as MBA/JD, and much more. Some sites have links to the schools’ web sites, or provide email addresses to contact schools of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r choice, and send them pre-applications. You can find lists of top schools ranked by various periodicals or ranked by starting salaries of graduates, GMAT scores, and other criteria. Generally you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should stay away from any sites that require you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to pay to get information or that promise to find scholarships for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 or ensure acceptance into a program.

Basic ways to promote Tourism with Internet Marketing to US markets? Can Vietnam do?

A Travel agency wants to get into a new market. This is small business but wants to reach target markets in USA

Richard answers:

There are a number of ways to market to the us market for Vietnam.

#1. Build a good, easy to use website. If the site is not usable than it wont matter how many visitors you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get, none will buy.

#2. Know the competition and be sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r offering something they are not. Exmaples are a better price, easy to use site, or target niche markets like all inclusive resorts or luxury accomidations. Another possible market would be himanitarian tourism targeting do-gooders.

#3. Market you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r site through the major online chanels. SEO, PPC, Media Buys, Email etc.

#4. Identify you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r primary markets of people most likely to want to travel to Vietnam and partner with with websites that already have access to those markets.

#6. Do not spam. No matter how easy it sounds, in the long term, spam marketing is not a viable option.

Interesting Questions About Email Marketing Best Practices

James asks…

where can I get a good email list for newsletter marketing of my site?

I would like to find a good email list for my marketing. My wife recently signed up for this auction site and immediately started getting emails from other auction sites. How do they do that. She never went on the sites she is getting emails from and the site she joined is not affiliated with those sites. Im positive on that. I would like to get lists like that

Richard answers:

The emails you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are receiving sound like borderline spam, while it’s acceptable to send a promotion for someone else’s product to an email address you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a relationship with, it’s not considered ethical to share email addresses with other companies.

There are email list brokers, often the same companies that collect snail mail lists too. Many list cost thousands of dollars. Spam Can regulations specify that emails are to be send only with the recipient’s permission, internet postmasters are on the lookout to halt multiple mails from a single source. You might look into buying ad space in targeted emagazines.

Marketers will set up campaigns solely for the purpose of creating their own email list to which they send useful information, promotions for their own products and products of joint partners who swap mailings. Marketers may value their mails list ot be worth $1 per person, per month. The email sign up campaigns will generally offer an enticement, like a 20 page report that people have to sign up for, later a first contact email is sent asking them to verify that they have signed up to the list, this best practice is refereed to as double opt in emails.

500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 that automate the email marketing process and also improve email delivery rates called auto responders, aweber is the biggest name in the field, charging $20/mo to send out predefined sequences on emails.

Linda asks…

What advice can anyone give for marketing on Yahoo Answers?

I’m looking for ideas, advice and success stories from anyone who has used Yahoo Answers as a marketing tool? Please note, I am writing an article on this topic and later a book, so you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r answers may be published. Please let me know if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t want you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r answers used in my writings.

Richard answers:

I use Yahoo Answers to direct people to my services. The key is to give real value to the asker in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r answer to their question. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are a problem solver for them, they will seek you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 out for more of what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 gave them. You don’t necessarily have to even place a link in the answer, as long as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can be contacted through IM or email.

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are too aggressive and have an obvious agenda….ie: short answer and placing a link for them to click….that’s not so effective….if at all…especially when the link is not really relevant.

In fact I realized the potential of this forum very quickly when 3 weeks into it …it occurred to me to look at my site statistics….just over 600 unique visits…so I realized my answers were effecting or influencing people.
So what started out as just a place to throw my opinions and expertise out there, became a unique tool in my business process.

Direct Mail and marketing are my thing, and part of my overall strategy is to use this forum to help educate people about the effectiveness of direct mail, and that marketing is a businesses top priority. This forum also allows me to “practice” my knowledge. It allows me to perfect my thoughts on a given subject. This makes me that much more effective when I am sitting in front of a live client.

It is also a great way to stay sharp creatively. There are often questions that allow me to craft a unique solution to the question at hand.

As far as the effectiveness of Yahoo Answers, I can see a direct correlation between a batch of unique visitors to my websites to when I may have spent a chunk of a few hours on Yahoo Answers.

Several hits have translated into an actual contact, and this excersize allows me to also tweak web content so that more of those visits turn into contacts.

Chris asks…

Is there any best practices regarding the use of enewsletters or blogs to connect with clients?

My company creates two entire websites that they email a newsletter out about three times a year. I think there has got to be a better way. Either more frequent emails out or a regularly updated blog. Does anyone know what works best?

Richard answers:

Three times a year isn’t enough. The reason you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 send out ezines is to connect with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r prospects and customers. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’re only sending it out every 3-4 months, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r prospects/customers probably don’t even remember why they are getting you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r information, and delete it before opening it up.

The rule of thumb in marketing is it takes up to 12 contacts to get you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r prospect to notice you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r message. With email, its easy to get those 12 contacts in a short amount of time.

I send my ezine out twice a month. I also send out special notices once or twice a month – if I have anything of value for my clients and prospects. I also have a blog that people can subscribe to, and I post on there periodically. With blogging, it posts the date, so you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to stay fairly current, and post at least a couple of times a month.

Just to share, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can see how I use my ezine and blog by visiting http://www.visionofsuccess.com/ and http://loriatvision.blogspot.com/

Mary asks…

What advice can u offer to Leadership-Today on how it can change its leadership practices to turn the company?

Leadership Today is an international consulting firm based in Singapore. The company provides consulting services on integrating and maximizing the effectiveness of new computer technologies for multinational corporations. In recent years, the company has been losing market shares to competitors due to what many believe to be ineffectual leadership. Mid- level managers have been heard complaining that they are not provided the freedom to make timely decisions to help their clients. Additionally, employees complain that they are never recognized for their accomplishments and that the organization never takes the time to celebrate major accomplishments. The result is low morale and decreasing market shares.

Richard answers:

Being a 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 computer user i wonder why it is necessary for microsoft to update my system all the time. I have Mcafee on board to protect this system from most bad things that may happen,
Should Leadership be looking at, a way to stop all the major corporations, getting into my email,facebook, I know people have to advertise, but there must be a limit. I am probably not a client.

Susan asks…

What is the minimum amount I need to be willing to invest in the stock market?

I’m looking to get into investing money in the stock market. I’m currently practicing with those websites that let you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a fake portfolio and I still need to learn more but once I am ready to start using real money what is the bare minimum I need to be willing to invest?

Richard answers:

I would say $5,000.
I started about 3 months ago with $2,000, and have gradually been adding spare money to my account and have been increasing my balance. I now have about $4,000 (my brother owes me a lot of money and has finally started paying me back consistently. Payments from him, in addition to extra from my paychecks is letting me add to my account over the last 3 months), and I’m slowly adding to my balance, but i think I would have been better off starting out with at least $5,000. I’ve only made about $150 profit since I started and I’ve made about 7 or 8 transactions (I’m not a day-trader or anything like that, I take my trading slow and see if I can make a little at a time), which means I have a lot of that eaten up by fees. I have paid like $30 with the fees for trading. Of course, I got 3 free trades when I signed up on Scottrade (entered a code) so that make 3 of those 7 trades free. But anyways back to the point. I really wish I started out with more because I would have invested larger amounts into each. I have like 5 stocks I’m in right now (yes, not very diversified but I’m just hoping I will make some profit long-term), but I only have like a few hundred in each. If I started out w/ more money I could have put about double into each of these and would have much more profit. I would probably have made around twice the profit, for the same number of fees. Anyways, 5,000 is a good place to start. Happy investing, if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need any help feel free to email me!

EDIT: By the way I didn’t mention this, but I would suggest Scottrade for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. It is what I am using and I am happy with it. There are no hidden fees or monthly fees, but keep in mind you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will have to pay attention to transaction fees. It costs $7 per trade of stock. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 bought 100 shares of Apple, or if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 only bought 1 share of Apple, it would still cost only $7 trading fee (plus the cost of the shares). You are a lot better off if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 buy large groups of shares together because you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are paying a smaller percentage to the trade fee. Also, if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 sign up for Scottrade and if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to be really nice you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can put me as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r referrer and it will give me 3 free trades and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 too (: If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to do that then email me.

Scottrade takes a minimum of $500 to open the account, $7 trades

John asks…

How would I get a mailing list from specific companies in MY niche’?

Richard answers:

Let me interject that U.S.s Can-Spam regulations forbid marketing to email addresses you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t have a prior relationships with, there are some email list owner publishers who will mail to their lists on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r behalf in the form of an advert in their eZine or a solo ad.

One source of rental postal lists, some provided from product warranty cards, trade magazine subscribers, etc is http://lists.nextmark.com they also offer email addresses and phone numbers in some cases.

William asks…

How do I advertise my holiday let property?

I have 2 apartments in the Azores Portugal for holiday lets, I have put them on websites, but have not received any offers yet. Any serious suggestions on how to attract customers please, names of websites etc
Here’s one advert: http://www.villarenters.com/advert_summary.asp?ref=51891

Richard answers:

You advert is noticeably the most expensive on Faial, charging more for sleeping 4 and some places sleeping 6 cost.

I realise that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r place is high-specification, with wireless internet, air-con, and DVD, but marketing a “high-end” product is a bit different to marketing a “cheap” product, and the downside of those sorts of listings is that people can easily compare you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r rates to those of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r competitors.

I have a marketing client who owns several UK holiday rental places – for her, we set up a blog and a mailing list so that anyone who had expressed an interest in her properties got a monthly email newsletter about her area.

With her, we set up a competition for people to register for the newsletter – with one subscriber winning a free weekend each year (no strings attached.)

Clearly, a free weekend rental may be less attractive in the Azores than in the UK, but some initiative to get people to sign up to receive regular information from you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 is definitely recommended.

That may be overkill, or too much work for a couple of apartments, but a blog (hosted free on somewhere like WordPress.com) could be good. Regular information about the kind of things happening in the area, could lead you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to a higher Google ranking for searches for things like “Faial holiday let”.

The idea is that, once a week, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’d add a post about something related to the area, or new features (DVD library now available) etc…

You may, offline, also like to consider things like club magazines. There are regular classifieds in the Morgan Sports Car Club magazine for holiday lets, and its noticeable that some are advertising as classified there, year-in, year-out, so it must be working for them! The Morgan Club may be the wrong market (the holiday properties that are advertised there tend to be ones people can drive to on a “European Car Tour”), but other clubs may be of interest.

Your local Church may produce a magazine that has low advertising rates.

Never underestimate the power of postcards in newsagent windows.

The bottom line though, to any succesful property marketing campaign is that there is no single “magic bullet” – you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need to be concentrating on multiple avenues.

What you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 MUST do, at the very least, is keep in touch with past clients – send them a monthly/quarterly newsletter through the post… Offer them a “return stay” discount of 10%, or offer them a lb50 “thank you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势” if they recommend a friend who ends up staying.

Laura asks…

Potential first time 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 buyer tips?

Here’s the deal, I really want to purchase a mobile 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 since I am single and just want a small place for myself. I have lived in two rental properties with my family and it has been less than stellar. What kind of things should a person going into this situation need to know or ask before buying into a mobile 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势? And no, not a redneck trailer just to get that out of the way.

Richard answers:

Why you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to buy a mobile 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势??? You can get a small house in ohio for less than 70,000 $. Payments would be about 625 $ a month with insurance and taxes. I have a house for sale right now.

First off you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to get preapproved for the financing and find out how much you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can actually afford. Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are preapproved then you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will know what price range you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can look at. Then you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get online and make a big list of the propertys you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to see. I like going out and looking at them without a realtor, basically doing a looksee around the outside, if I like the neighborhood and all that, then I contact my realtor and schedule to go inside. No sense wasting the realtors and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r time going there if the neighborhood sucks.
Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 find a place, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 make an offer. And I would take 10 % right off the top of the list price immediately. Its a buyers market. People are dying to sell properties right now. Then get someone qualified to inspect the property, the realtor will know many good people for this. And if possible, go to a small bank, like a credit union and get the mortgage thru them, they take less time to get the paperwork done. I got my mortgage in 2-3 days thru my credit union. They rock. A big conglomerate of a bank will take a month to process it at least. Look for bank owned short sale properties. If the banks can’t move them, then they send them to sheriffs auctions and they don’t like doing that. They will take any offer you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 throw at them.
And above all, make sure anything the cheeky realtor tells you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 about prices is in WRITING. Do not accept verbal agreements.

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need to know anymore, send me an IM or email.
And Good Luck!

Interesting Questions About Email List Building Best Practices

Nancy asks…

How come that a little group of countries called the UK had the biggest empire the world has ever seen?

In wars they beat Russia, China, Italy, Spain, France, Germany. They occupied Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand and large parts of Africa plus a few more places. As an American I fail to understand how they did it, Can you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势?

Richard answers:

75 year old American that was in the Blitz with a 78 year old Grandfather Hm

And do not address me as ‘My dear Friend’ when sending abusive Emails.

Russia was to stop expansion and was fought with the French, and was really a draw.

Everyone beats the Italians in War, but we are still friends.

All the places you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 list did not have any Government, except NZ and there we signed a treaty (the treaty of Waitangi), mainly to stop the Dutch, who we regularly beat and the French who we always beat from taking the Country and stopping Trade.

The Empire was built on Free Trade and Rule of Law. Plus something called Prize Money which was paid to Seamen in the Royal Navy in the 18th Century, when a RN ship captured a Foreign ship it was sold to the Government and each member of crew got a share, so there was plenty of incentive to capture rather than sink other ships, which were then put into service for HMs Navy.

This allowed the RN to become the largest, along with endless practice we also had the best.

The Army was always quite small, but then as we were usually relieving the French of some peice of land like India or Canada it didn’t need to be large.

Mandy asks…

Can I start a K-1 Visa for my fiance if she is in another country besides her own?

Basically, my fiance is in Korea. She is from the Philippines and has been in Korea since 2009. Will they allow her to come to America from Korea? I’m getting ready to start her K-1 Visa process but I’m just wondering, if there is anything I need to do before we start, to make sure no red or yellow flags are thrown while I begin the process??? Also, I would file her as an immigrant right?

Richard answers:

Sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can file right away.

She is permitted to attend her medical and the interview for the K1 visa in the country where she is a LEGAL resident (Korea) or the country where she is a citizen (Philippines),.

So she could have her interview in Korea, then travel directly to the USA.

In practice most Filipinas working as overseas contract workers prefer to spend some time with their families in the Philippines prior to permanently moving to the USA for marriage, so generally they end their overseas contract a few months prior to the expected interview, go 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势, then have their interview in Manila. There is also a practical advantage to this, as the US consulate in Manila is much more “user friendly” to the Filipina than US consulates elsewhere.

Here is how the process works:

What you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should apply for is called a Fiancee or K1 visa. Once approved you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r foreign Fiancee will be allowed to LEGALLY enter the USA for the purpose of marrying you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势,
then permanently remaining in the USA.

There are a lot of details involved. I have recorded a series of videos that explain the
process: http://fianceevisaservices.com/fianceevisavideo.html

To summarize.

First of all you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a real courtship and relationship and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 both intend to get married.

Then check that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 both meet the eligibility requirements: You are a US citizen. You both are currently ‘free to marry’. You earn over $15,130 annual income. You have met each other ‘face to face’ at least once, during the past two years.

You will have to ‘prove’ that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a real, genuine, ‘bone fide’ relationship. You do this by presenting copies of correspondences, photos, letters, plane tickets, etc.

You should make sure that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 build from the start a solid ‘paper trail’ of the communications of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relationship. This means itemized telephone records, emails, instant messages, voip calls, snail mail, packages. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 use prepaid telephone cards make sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rs gives you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 an itemized call list or find a different card to use..

When traveling to visit you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r fiancee, take plenty of photos, vary the shots, locations, wardrobes. Meet her family, and friends. Document with photos. Turn date stamping on.

Don’t move too quickly. Couples who instantly fall in love and get engaged or married may be suspected of fraud. Go slowly, build you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relationship.

Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relationship gets serious, don’t let too much time elapse between trips to meet each other “Face to Face”. The longer the separation, the more suspect the relationship is. I recommend travel to meet with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r Fiance at least every 6 to 9 months.

Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relationship has progressed, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have made 1 or more trips, and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have abundant proof of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r relationship. Then You apply for the visa, to USCIS, 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势land Security.

Then about 6 to 8 months later she will be asked to come to the US embassy for her interview. If all goes well she will be granted you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r visa, come to the USA and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can then marry.

Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 marry, she applies for his Green Card and then can remain together with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 permanently in the USA.

Costs:

$340 Fiancee visa filing fee, when You originally apply to USCIS
$200 medical exam fee, just prior to her interview
$240 Visa application fee, just prior to her interview

Sharon asks…

How can i practice to make varsity girls lacrosse?

Ok so I have only played lacrosse for one season in 8th grade. The coach was very impressed because she said i was extreamly hardworking and a very good player. Although this year i decided to do spring track instead of freshman lacrosse. but now i want to train to get better at lacrosse because i want to try out for ether JV or varsity (preferably varsity.) What drills/exercises can i do alone to help me train??

Richard answers:

Unless you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 really are very very good-you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r probably not going to make it to varsity. Have you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 ever heard of wallball? If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 havn’t it’s:
-30 reps with each hand
1 hand: catch and 1 cradle
2 hands:catch and 1 cradle
2 hands:quick stick (no cradling. Close to the wall toss-catch-toss-catch ect)
2 hands: split drill (catch right,switch and throw left and vice versa)
2 hands: catch face dodge, and throw
2 hands: catch fake, and throw

thats the list our coach gave us (varsity) to do in the beginning of the season. We did those drills for like a week straight and we improved so much.

Other tips are
-practice sprints. Espically if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r not good at them. Even if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can do long distance at a slow pace it wont help too much in the game. You need to be able to sprint from goal to goal take a few seconds break then back.

-build up some arm muscles. You might not think of it at first but it helps a lot. You dont get as tired and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can throw the ball further

-be used to yelling and running at the same time. We all hate running, sprinting actually, and its 20 times worse when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to be calling ball and such. Get used to it.

In the beginning of the recent season my coach was really disapointed that it seemed like no one touched their stick since last season. Like their skills weren’t very sharp. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 do some training espically right before season it’ll make a great impression!

Oh! I almost forgot! Practice practice practice practice practice practice GROUND BALLS! I dont know if its just my school but that is our biggest weakness. We spend hours upon hours practicing the form of getting low and bloody knuckles but during the game we still can’t get it.

Can someone give me some input on my resume?

***I would really like someone who has experiences with resume or knows a lot about resumes to help me. I really need to get back out there after being a stay-at-500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 mother and a college student for some time now.

Can someone give me some input on my resume? I am not sure I am doing this correct. I’ve read numerous resume how-to books, but it can be really intimidating to put you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r work history on paper. I read that I should put my education first, if it’s my strongest selling point, so that’s what I did, hopefully that’s right. And is it okay to add unpaid work experiences, such as family run business? Most of my jobs are similar how do I group them up so that it doesn’t take up so much space, because they basically are the same.

I am good at resumes from a couple of decades of practice. Understand that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r resume is the device that is intended to get you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 the interview. I recommend the following and we can correspond more at cadelarge@500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势yahoo.com if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 like.

1. Organize you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r resume around transferable and relevant skills first, then around work history on a subsequent page as employers are buying you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r skills not you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r work chronology.

2. Group you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r bullets by transferable skill as listed in the job description of the position you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are applying for. Employers are interested in matches to the job description more than they are in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r work chronology or irrelevant skill sets. Also, use words that the employer uses in the job description as most resume selections are done via keywords in company resume databases and internet job boards these days and they are likely to use their own words when they search.

3. Reference all relevant examples of relevant skills and experience whether from paid or unpaid work, i.e., management 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 and family, church and other volunteer or community work. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 exercised the skill and got a good result reference it.

4. Decribe the results you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r experience yielded, i.e., money and time made or saved, process improved, relationships built or retained. Untilmately, employers are buying people who can get results, where they results were achieved is secondary.

5. Prepare appendices to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r resume which allow the employer to more easily access the information they need that shows you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are qualified. I have an appendix of all the brands and categories I have done marketing in so that employers can quickly see this information. I only use it when going for marketing positions.

There you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have it. I have used these tips faithfully for years and get constant complements, interviews and offers based on my resume.

Good luck and do not hesitate to contact me if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need further help.

Steven asks…

Where can I learn to build a really effective ebay ad or has anyone got some killer tips?

Richard answers:

Be honest and accurate in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r descriptions – One-sentence descriptions are for lazy sellers. One paragraph should be sufficient for most items. My general guideline is the more expensive (read higher priced) an item, the more you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should ‘talk it up.’ It won’t be time wasted. Use lots of adjectives in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r descriptions. Adjectives make prose and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r items come alive. Without them, prose is dull and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r items less appealing.

Be professional – use good English with no spelling errors

PICTURES:

ALWAYS include at least one picture, more pictures for higher priced items. Make sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r pictures are clear. There are far too many pictures on ebay that are dark. If prospective buyers can’t see you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r items clearly, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r items, more than likely, will not fetch the closing prices they deserve. To remove darkness, use any photo editor to add some brightness and a wee bit of contrast.

Eliminate clutter. Prospective bidders don’t want to know what kind of cereal you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 eat or what kind of kitchen table or bedspead you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have. Use a SOLID backdrop when taking you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r pictures as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to focus all of the attention on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r item. In short, the one and only thing you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r picture is the item being sold. A SOLID white or light blue backdrop is best. However, there are certainly items that won’t show well on a light backdrop. In these cases, use a darker backdrop. And for gosh sake, don’t even think of using a plaid blanket as a backdrop for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r pictures as I once saw on ebay. You should also crop the photos in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r photo editor. Good pictures can add 5% to 10% to final closing prices.

GOOD DESCRIPTIONS + GOOD PICTURES = GOOD PRESENTATION. This is what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should strive for.

COMMUNICATION

GOOD Communication is a must – Always notify buyers when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 mail their items. It is not only a courtesy you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 would want and expect as a buyer but it is also both good customer service and good business practice. After all, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are the ‘President & CEO’ of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r ‘company’ running you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business but using ebay as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r selling medium. In short, conduct you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business so that it reflects well on you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 as a person. Treat everyone as a human being, not a living being, and this includes people who have inquiries about you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r items, not just you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r buyers. The potential bidders making these inquiries could ultimately be you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r buyers and possibly repeat customers.

TIPS TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS

Do not limit you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r auctions to one country. SELL WORLDWIDE. The reason is elementary. You now have access to the largest market ebay has to offer. Limiting you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r auctions to only one country also limits you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r potential profits. A basic business tenet is, ‘the greater the potential market, the greater the potential to maximize profits.’ But do note in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r listing that PayPal is the only form of payment you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will accept from overseas bidders/buyers. Through experience, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will learn that there are certain problem countries. Italy seems to be one of them. Mail sent to buyers in Italy very often ‘mysteriously disappears.’ If this is the case, just note in you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r listing you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 sell to all countries EXCEPT (name(s) here).

However, if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 decide to limit sales to only one country, such as the USA, never say NO when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 receive an email asking if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 would ship to Taiwan, Germany, Australia or wherever. The reason is that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a ‘FISH ON THE HOOK!’ This person will bid! When he or she does, this may force a previous bidder to enter another, higher bid or force later, first time bidders to come in with higher bids. So always say YES to these emails if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to maximize you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r profits. But do say that PayPal is the only form of payment you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will accept from these overseas bidders

Do not limit you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r payment options – Offer all of them. Sellers who offer only PayPal or only money orders or money orders and checks are further limiting their potential market and, in turn, reducing their potential to maximize profits. Some people will not bid on items that do not have PayPal as a payment option. Then you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a smaller percentage that refuse to use PayPal and prefer to pay by check only or money order only.

Ebay sellers are increasingly complaining about the high cost of ebay and PayPal fees. I say, try establishing you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r own business and reach the tens of millions people that ebay reaches and find out how much you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r expenses are. To these complainers, I say ‘Kwitchurbellyakin.’ There is always a cost of doing business. Many sellers have left ebay for other auction sites to save on fees. I don’t think this is prudent. They may be saving a few bucks on fees but an item that sells on another auction site with far, fewer members for $10 would likely sell for substantially more at ebay with its much greater membership. This is a classic example of “stepping over a dollar to pick up a penny” and being “penny wise and pound foolish.”

These smaller auction sites are great for buyers for the same reason they are bad for sellers:

Fewer potential bidders = Less competition = Lower closing prices.

These smaller auction sites ‘dangle their worms’ with low and no fees but they certainly won’t tell new sellers their items will sell for less than at their sites than they will sell for at ebay. There isn’t another auction site on the web that can hold a candle to ebay and the tens of millions of members it has. Many have tried and many have failed and yet, many are still trying. Ebay has a virtual lock on this business. This is where you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to sell as ebay has the largest potential market.

The ebay formula:

LARGEST auction site by far = MAXIMUM competition = HIGHER closing prices

Avoid selling ‘nickel and dime’ items. People who list and sell a steady stream of items that close for $5 or less are wasting their time. Less expensive, similar items ($5 or less) are best sold as a group to save time. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a large number of these cheaper, similar items, divide them up into sub lots of four or five.

More expensive, similar items are best sold separately to maximize profits. There are ebay ‘vultures’ who just love to swoop down on similarly grouped items in one listing. When they win these auctions, they turn around and sell the items individually and, in most cases, get one and a half to 2 times and sometimes three times what they paid for them on an average item basis. I know this works. When I had more time (read unemployed), I was one of these ‘vultures.’ This is one of those situations where the parts are worth more than the whole. However, do be cautious if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 venture into this arena. You have to know you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r merchandise. Stay in those areas you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are familiar with. You can’t jump in blindly to any and every auction that has grouped items.

Short of items to sell and where to find items to sell? Garage and yard sales, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r attic, basement, closets, flea markets are obvious as are ‘junktique’ shops. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to let you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r fingers do the walking, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 too can be crafty ‘vulture’ like a select group of other ebay sellers. Become a member of several smaller auction sites and search for bargains there and turn them around on ebay. But as before, ‘stick with what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 know.’

If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r listings OFFLINE, download the TURBO LISTER program free from ebay. Once you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have finished with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r listings, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can upload them anytime or schedule a date and time when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r auctions to start.

Lastly, keep in mind that experience is the best teacher. You will soon learn the ins and outs and the dos and don’ts in short order and ultimately settle on a system that works best for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are conscientious and put in a little extra effort, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 will do well. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are lazy or indifferent in selling you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r items, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 won’t. Good luck & happy selling!

Does Hipaa apply to email lists from high schools concerning bad grades?

The high school counselor sent out an email list to parents/guardians of students who have not turned in important signed documents about failing math grades. Does Hipaa apply here?

Richard answers:

This has nothing to do with HIPAA. This is to do with not doing the assigned work not Health& Safety/ Insurance. The email lists are there for contacting parents as well as other things. For example, it would be an infringement of the HIPAA policy and practices if the school was selling the list to companies.

With this company, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can make as little or as much as you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want. Your opportunity is endless.

If this sounds like something you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 would be interested in, please do not hesitate to email me. I can mail you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 a catalog along with other information, including a sample scent. You can also check it out on my website

What is best email marketing company for a small business?

I’m looking to send monthly newsletters to my customers. I’m not a techie and just want to send a few simple emails. An easy to use program/service is my most important consideration, with affordability a close second. I have the emails, (I don’t need a list). What I need is the service/function.

Thank yoU!

Richard answers:

I know of a couple of options:

1) Constant Contact (http://www/constantcontact.com) – their plans start at $15/month for 500 e-mails per month.

2) Cooler E-mail (http://www.cooleremail.com) – starts at $19.95 for 250 e-mails per month.

I believe both of these services walk you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 through setting up you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r e-mail in HTML (if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to).

Do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a website for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business?
Even if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 aren’t a “techie”, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can build a basic site which would give you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r business even more exposure. The company that I built my site through also offers e-mail marketing and it is included in the price of the web service. They also have a block-by-block site builder so you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t need to know HTML and they submit all of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r pages to the search engines so you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 get traffic more quickly. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to see the site I built with the block-by-block builder (with very little HTML knowledge) and find out about the web service/e-mail marketing, go to http://www.eatingwithfoodallergies.com/aboutthissite.html
