How To Get Paid To Play A Game

So you have enough spare time in the office, after school, or you have a couple of minutes to spare everyday? Believe it or not you can make money in your spare time by playing a simple game that's free to join.

How does the game work?

The game is online and features a simple web based click play style. You just click on the directions on where you want to go and there are actions per area that you're in.

For example, after moving to the right you land on a jungle. The available action is to search the jungle and more often than not you receive rewards for searching. When you land on a member base you can decide to attack it and steal money from them.

Some caves have special prizes too! I've heard of a member who was able to get an Ipod while searching in the caves.

Some Strategies

I recommend a good balance between spending for your upgrades and saving some for your Paypal or check account. When you spend for upgrades you get better offense and you can build a tighter defense for your base.

You can't go on and attack other people's bases(especially the heavily fortified ones) and I suppose you wouldn't want other members attacking your base without it having some sort of defense to keep your money in!

How do you get paid?

After every month, the remaining balance on your home base will be paid to you via Check or Paypal. The trick here is to be able to defend your base so that other people won't get your money! You can use your money to buy upgrades or transfer the funds to your paypal account or have them send it to you via check so you can spend it on whatever you like!
How much do to Join?

$0. It doesn't cost anything to join. You just join and play and play to earn. Upon joining, you get $5 in your balance for free!

How do I join?

Tips For A Successful Adsense Site

One doesn't have to dig very deep on the internet to find an adsense site. At its most basic level, an adsense site is a site which displays Google Adsense ads to earn money. The problem is that the majority of Adsense sites are trash – just content scraped off other sites that has been thrown together into a mish-mash that the webmaster calls a website.

If you want to be highly successful in the Adsense site industry, you're going to have to do something drastically different. Following are several tips you can use to distinguish yourself from the crowd.

1 – Use a professional design
Many adsense sites use a very basic, cheap looking template that they paste their content into. If you use a professional website design, people are more likely to place value and trust in your site.

2 – Use unique content
Don't use recycled content. Take the time or money required to get your own unique articles and content written for your site. This will allow you to offer your readers content that they cannot get anywhere else, as well as give you better rankings in the search engines.

3 – Create a valuable resource
The purpose of an Adsense site should not be just to get a visitor to come and click on the ads. It should be to get a visitor to come, and because the like you site so much, keep coming back again and again. That is how you can have a highly successful site – returning visitors.

4 – Use other monetization methods
Adsense should not be your only source of income from a site. Sell a product, promote affiliate programs, sell banner ads, or sell text link ads on your site. This serves to diversify your income, as well as gives other content for your visitors to look at or click on.

Google Adwords: A Quick Word Of Advice

Over the next few weeks im going to be offering some advice and solutions on specific mistakes that people make when venturing into google adwords. It also Helps to refresh my memory now and again to. Heres the first.

A problem that i see crop up time and time again is when people choose their keywords before they find there niche market. Many people that get into PPC advertising set up a campaign, set their CPC's high, add a truck load of keywords that they think will convert, and then begin to research the product that there trying to sell. This is all wrong!

It is very important the you seek out your market before you find a product to promote to them.Try going on forums or visiting newsgroups and focus groups...see whats hot, what people are having problems with or complaining about and looking for a solution to -- and then deliver a product to these people.

Lets look at it from a different angle. If you have a stand that sells pizza in a demographic where everyone likes to eat only Chinese, you are not going to sell many pizzas, no matter how delicious. The same goes for online promotions, if you are promoting the wrong products to people or trying to sell to people who simply are not hungry to buy, they are not going to purchase from you.

So whats the lesson? Focus on market research before promoting a product. Spend time to learn your audience, what they buy, why they buy, and then look at what fellow affiliates are doing. This will give you a great starting point before you jump into the "deep end".

Only then should you start looking at your chosen market and product on a keyword level, buts thats an entirely different article!!

How To Jerk-Proof Your Emails

Maybe you are in a hurry.

Perhaps you are trying to tell a joke.

Is it possible that you are having a bad day?

None of these things matter to the person on the receiving end of your emails. When communicating by email people can't hear your or see your face so you have to be extremely careful in the way you word things.

I try to always keep a smile on my face when I type emails (especially if I am upset) but sometimes that doesn't cut it and I have to be reminded of some basic email etiquette rules.

Case in point, a recent email I sent in response to something I received:

"I don't know what you are talking about. I am not a tech person."

Now that I look at that, I laugh because I can't believe I wrote it in that manner. At the time I didn't mean anything bad by it, I wasn't trying to be rude. I was simply trying to say that I was confused by the message because I am not an IT person.

But that's not how it reads and I can admit that. It reads more like “You are wasting my time. Go bother someone else.”

I am glad that the person pointed out to me how that could come across to someone who doesn't know me very well.

"People read different things into emails, read your email again and tell me how it sounds".

Yikes!

Here are some tips for jerk-proofing your emails:

- When you type an email put a smile on your face, most of the time it will come through in what you write.

- Before you hit send, read your email aloud.

- Ask yourself, "What would I think if someone sent this email to me?"

- Sarcasm doesn't translate well through email, please keep this in mind. But if you absolutely must use it- make use of the :)

What is ICMP?

ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) is an Internet protocol that is focused on the control of messages and the reporting of errors. In design, ICMP is configured to provide these functions as a mediator between a gateway and a host server. The presence of ICMP helps to protect the integrity of the messages that are relayed back and forth between the two devices, as well as make efficient use of the Internet Protocol datagrams that are present.

Being one of the core protocols within the overall protocol suite, ICMP takes on the direct responsibility of processing error messages. This can be especially helpful in a networked environment, as ICMP makes it possible for a server to send out an error message to all connected workstations in the event that a program is taken offline or is temporary unavailable for some reason. This makes ICMP a valuable tool in making the most use of the operating system interface on the network, without tying up a lot of resources at the same time.

How Does ICMP Work?

The beauty of being the go-between for the host server and various connected devices is that ICMP can encapsulate the message in a way that protects the content, but does not use up lots of resources. When a message is received by ICMP, the protocol places the entire message in single IP datagram, and then forward the datagram to the destination. This special routing relieves some of the usage from the more standard protocols and helps to keep resources open and available to the other protocols. Overall, this aids in the total efficiency of the network.

How Do I Get ICMP?

Chances are you already have ICMP in place if you work within a network environment, or are using a computer system that has the ability to be linked into a network. Installation on systems that do not have ICMP is not difficult, but owing to the widespread use of the protocol, there is not much chance that an outside installation would ever be needed. Just to be sure, check with a technician about the use of ICMP on your network.

In the 1960s, Unity began airing "The Word," televised readings of spiritual messages performed by celebrities. They continued through 1992. Today, Daily Word has established a presence in a new medium: the Internet.

"Our goal is to make the Daily Word message conveniently available to as many people as possible, at any time of day or night," said Tim Ipema, vice president of marketing and development for Unity.

Top Article Directories

Content is king when it comes to the internet. Fresh and relevant content is the key by which websites gain new audiences, keep existing ones and improve their page ranking in search engines. Practically everything revolves around content.

It is for this reason that web masters and business owners try their best to maximize the effect and benefit they can get from the content on their websites. One of the most effective ways of getting the most out of your content is to submit it to article directories.

An article directory is a large repository of information that has been collected over time by publishers who accept articles and then serve them. This is not free though in the sense that the submitter will not do anything. As payment for serving the article, the submitter is obligated to host a link to the article directory on his website.

These article directories are like a storage space for content. Writers of content can bring their articles to the directory and any person who is looking for a particular kind of content can go there and, depending on the rights given to people using content, gets it.

By putting your content in article directories there is bigger chance that your articles will be used by popular websites. This will surely improve your link popularity. This will also make you more visible to more people. As previously mentioned, since content is much sought after in the web, even website publishers would search for good quality content in these directories. As part of the stipulated agreement of most article directories, any website who publish content is required to include the author / content owner’s resource box. This can lead to more publicity and exposure for your website. But the best thing is that it does not cost a cent.

Google Talk?

Google Talk? What's this? Is Google getting in on the Internet telephony craze? Yes they are! The search giant now offers a beta version download of Google Talk at no charge. http://www.google.com/talk/

Google Talk allows users to IM or make calls over the Internet using a PC, speakers and microphone, again; no charge. The new Google software can be downloaded by anyone with Windows 2000 platform or later.

Of course you can only call or IM other people who have downloaded the Google Talk software. Both parties need to have a Gmail account to log onto the Google Talk messenger.

Those who don't already have a Gmail account can request an invitation via mobile-phone. https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsMailSignup1 . People who don't have a cell-phone will need to have someone with an account send a Gmail invitation.

Google has made it fairly convenient to add people to the contacts list of the messenger. Invitations are sent directly from the messenger or from the user's Gmail account. There is no limit to the number of users one can have on their contact list.

With that being said, I decided to give Google Talk a spin myself. The UI is easy to use and understand, with Internet calling, instant messaging, e-mail, and of course, Google search. There are no ad's to clutter the Interface, which is refreshing.

The user control's again are pretty cut and dry, it is a bit plain looking, however; this in my opinion add's to it's usability. Other than an absence of ad's, the only thing new about this is the fact it is from Google.

All in all, Google Talk is a pretty good messenger. If you have a distaste for banner ad's or pop up's every time you start your messenger, "G" Talk should be a welcome change of pace.

Why your site is not making money

Many people often asked, “Why am I not getting sales, nobody is signing up, I am not making any money, what is going wrong?”

Something is actually wrong. You see, when you’ve developed a product, registered a domain name, hosted your site, and solved issues like payment processor, you have to wait for the money to start rolling in—only then you will know the value of traffic.

No matter how beautiful your site or how crazy your product, without traffic your online business will fail. Generating traffic is the most difficult part of running an online business. But why is getting traffic so difficult? There are two main reasons.

The first reason is that online is not like the real world where you can rely on mere shop display. If you don’t make any calculated sales drive, people cannot find your site. The second reason is that the Internet has changed.

Internet advertising keeps advancing with many kinds of filters to make sure the right audience sees the right message. That is, to make sue you don’t disturb people who don’t want your ads. Traffic providers like Google can easily tell “junk” content from “real” content even if the surfers cannot. Nobody wants to give you the chance to succeed online.

There are about 6 billion people on the planet with about a billion using the Internet but sadly most sites have little traffic and make $20 to $50 a month. So how does one really get traffic?

You will not get traffic while sitting on your pajamas, feet up on your desk, sipping your coffee. You need to work very hard. To get massive traffic, people should be able to find your site virtually everywhere hence you need a broad, multi-faceted marketing campaign. Don’t rely solely on search engine ranking otherwise you are leaving 90% traffic.

Research as many traffic techniques as you can and experiment with as many as possible. Though it will cost you time and money, it is all an investment. Nothing comes easy, especially financial success.

How Internet Fax Service Saves Money And Time

Internet faxing circumvents the complexity of a fax machine and those never-ending paper jams, meanwhile embracing the flexibility, quickness and money saving aspects of internet communication.

Internet Faxing is one of the advantages the World Wide Web has brought to the common man. As the term indicates, it is the way of sending faxes through the internet, without the aid of complex faxing machines. And more importantly, internet faxing is cheap, fast and easy to use. Let us see how it can be a big time and money saver.

The infrastructure one may need so as to use internet faxing is quite simple. A PC, a reliable internet connection, and an email id provided by the service provider. That is, no more dabbling with the complex fax softwares or operational procedures to perform faxing, and that itself saves a lot of your quality time. Further, as one can send or receive fax messages from his/her desktop, there is no need to walk up to where the fax machine is placed and wait for one’s turn to get the job done. In fact, waiting in front of a fax machine if you are to receive a particular fax is the most time consuming of the exercises, and that is completely eliminated with web faxing.

On the economic front, the only payment one has to cough up is the monthly fee for the service provider. And that won’t exceed $20 a month. Rest of the services is free, and the customer can receive the fax messages in his/her mailbox like any other email. Given the total expense on email faxing, if to consider the average expense per page, it will be as low as 30-35 cents per page, and that is the lowest possible on any counts.

To conclude, online faxing, to a good extent, has effectively bridged the gap between traditional fax machines and web-based communication. It circumvents the complexity of a fax machine and those never-ending paper jams, meanwhile embracing the flexibility, quickness and money saving aspects of internet communication. After all, that’s what one expects from technological innovations!

Typically, the experts will tell you that you need to plan so that your Internet business should come up in the first two pages of search results.

Therefore, you need to have a niche that targets a specific product or group of people in your Internet business plan. This ensures that customers will visit your site. Look at programs on the Internet that will search through the keywords that people use when searching for a specific product. This is the best place to start. Internet business owners take the keywords and build pages on their site around the most frequently used keywords.

You don’t need to have a flair for writing to start an Internet business. Even a simple link on a page of the Internet site will bring customers to an affiliate where they can purchase the product they want to purchase. After you start the Internet business, you can include articles about the product or even a basic description with a link provided so that customers can order directly from you or another company with an Internet presence. No matter where your interests lie, there is a business waiting for you on the Internet.

Need to start an Internet business? It’s not that hard there are well known ways to do it.

Save Money On Groceries With Coupons

Do you have a large family that requires a large grocery bill every month? Do you find yourself spending more money than you should on food that you cannot afford? If this sounds like you, one of the best options that you can exercise is finding coupons. Using coupons when you shop is a great way to get money off of the products that you buy most often.

Many people feel that using coupons is a waste of time, and it takes entirely too long to locate them. But if you know what you are doing, it will not be too much of a hassle at all. There are many different places that you can find coupons. The first place that you will want to check is in the Sunday newspaper. Every major paper will have a section of grocery coupons for you to go through. The only thing that you will need to do is cut out the ones that you want to use and throw out the rest. This is a simple five to ten minute job. Also, check in the mail for coupons everyday. More than likely you throw out hundreds of dollars worth of coupons every year without even knowing it. This is because most people think the coupons are junk mail, and they do not even take a second glance.

If you have already made your way to the grocery without coupons in hand you are not out of luck just yet. At most grocery stores there are advertisements in a rack at the front of the store. Not only do they advertise the store’s products, but they also have valuable coupons that are hidden inside. This is a great way to save money without having to try too hard. Also, keep your eyes open for coupon dispensers throughout the stores. Most of the time, the coupons that are coming out of the dispenser are located right next to the product. This makes it very easy to grab a coupon, and then pick up the item.

Overall, you should never overlook coupons as a top notch way to save money on your grocery bill. If you find yourself at the grocery store once or twice a week there is a good chance that you will save a large chunk of money over the course of the year by using coupons. Remember to keep your eyes open at all times for the best coupons!

Google Guide

Introduction

When we surf on the internet, we all need a guide. For me, and I am sure for most of you, that guide is Google.
However, do we know how to take advantage from all this guide is offering us? In the next article, I will try to present the operators used in searching along with some words with special significations.

Operators

The minus operator (-) can be used for terms you want excluded from your search.
If you put a phrase in (“) Google will display the result containing that phrase.

The stop words

These words will be excludes from Google searching because Google is considering them very usual ones (for ex. “to”). If you want your searching to contain those particular words you will have to use the plus operator (+) before them.

Memorized page

Google acquires an image of each examined page during its checks on internet, and keeps it in case the original page is not available. If you click on the“Cache” link, you will see the page in the same format it was when indexed.

Similar pages

If you click on “Similar pages”, Google will give you similar pages with that page. This function is useful if you want to buy a product with the lowest price.

Calculator

Google can be used in the same time as a calculator. All you have to do is to write the equation in the search box and to press enter.

Ex. 5*658*89+56

Special words

Some words, if followed by two points (:) , get a special meaning for Google. It is very important not to put spaces between (:) and the next word because in that case, those words will not going to have that special function but simply searching terms.

Dictionary

You can also use Google for definition of some words. You must use the word “define” and the word whose definition you are looking for.

Searching on specified site

If you want your search to contain only results from a specified site you have to use the word “site” followed by it address and searching terms.

Connections to a page

Use the word “link” and sites address and you will find pages sending you to that site.


Other functions
There are many other functions, such as maps, air travel information or stock market values but are valid only for United States, so, I will not pay to much attention to that.

The Advance Of Internet Radio

Internet radio is occasionally an overlooked feature of the Internet. The act of broadcasting music over the Internet in this way is referred to as streaming music and there are many stations that offer streaming over the Internet. You will often find that your favorite terrestrial station can be found online, but there are just as many radio stations that are transmitted solely over the Internet. One of the biggest benefits of Internet radio is that the data is transmitted over the Internet making it possible to listen to radio stations from all over the world. Expatriates find this particularly beneficial.

Similarly, though, it is also cheaper to produce music over the Internet and this means that smaller stations with a smaller fan base than mainstream radio requires are able to run their own radio station. This makes it perfect for those who like particular genres of music to find exactly what they are looking for.

Internet Talk Radio was the first ever Internet radio service and was established in 1993 and in 1995 the first radio service published only on the Internet was introduced – Radio HK. Since then the number of stations opening on the Internet has increased dramatically. Peercasting, or P2P technology, makes it even easier to start an Internet radio station so it is likely that there will be even more stations in the near future.

Internet radio is perfect for people in small towns that are monopolized by only two or three radio stations and are forced to listen to one playlist of songs over and over. With internet radio the possibility of gaining access to music that a person likes is greatly increased.

Whether you are looking for radio broadcasts from countries miles away or you want to listen to one particular genre of music you can be virtually assured of finding a station that caters to your needs. You can even find chat stations that deal with one particular topic. The quality of sound and the quality of the programs distributed are both excellent. If you haven’t tried Internet Radio before, you should try it now.

What Is Drywall?

Drywall (also called wallboard, gypsum board, and plasterboard) is an economical building material usually used to face walls and ceiling inside structures. Composed primarily of gypsum rock stretched out in a flat sheet between two pieces of thin board (or heavy paper, as some say), drywall is low-budget and easy to install—two reasons why it’s the most commonly used interior building material throughout the world!

Forms of Drywall
White board—regular. This form of drywall looks appealing, is the cheapest, and is used for those who need either a quick-fix or wish for a nice appearance at a very cheap price.

Fire-resistive ("Type X") – A bit more expensive, for obvious reasons. This form of drywall holds up better, although it has its drawbacks as well.

Green Board—washrooms and other high-humidity areas. This form of drywall presumably absorbs moisture well.

Drywall Specifications and Types
The standard cut for drywall in the United States and Canada is 4 feet (1220 mm) wide and eight feet (2440 mm) long, although these sheets can be custom cut to exact-fit the specifications and dimensions of any home. Some industrial sheets are cut at 16 feet (4880 mm). The standard measurements for drywall in other countries are slightly different: 1200 mm wide and 2400 long, although that varies.

Thickness varies, too. Typically, drywall is from one-half inch (12mm, 12.5 mm, or 12.7 mm) to one inch (25 mm), but it slightly differs in every country, depending on that country’s building regulations and system of measurement.

The United States and Canada together possess the greatest number of gypsum board users in the world. The gypsum board (drywall) market is booming and continues to rise. This is probably due to increased real estate and the fact that “an average American home contains seven metric tons of gypsum” (U.S. Geological Survey), which offers the possibility that drywall might contribute to the increase in home value.

Drywall is the material for all seasons. This material provides protection and lightweight support and adds an attractive appeal to the home.

Googles's Google News Redefines Internet Standards For Midia Reporting And Organization

Among Its Many Other Successes, Google’s Google News Has Redefined Internet Standards for Media Reporting and Organization

With so many services available on the World Wide Web it is often a difficult task to pick out the contenders from the pretenders. However, Google, based in California makes it easy to differentiate the fakes from the real news providers.

Breaking news on Google is easy to access. Google news is completely automated and made its debut in 2002. Finally, on January 23, 2006, the beta trial ended and now the breaking news on Google service is available in over 20 languages.

One of the most refreshing aspects of Google News is the elimination of journalistic bias: the service is completely automated so that no human judgment works its way into the equation.

These days it seems like all major news reporting services are slanted. Left wing, right wing – it is contamination of honest, truthful reporting. It is refreshing to have an outlet that just reports news instead of tuning it to fit certain needs.

Breaking news on Google is a valuable resource for anyone interested in what is happening in the world. Today, since there is so much going on that is newsworthy, the Google News service is a tremendous resource for academics, journalists and businesspeople.

Google News can be received in HTML, text and by RSS/Atom feed. The stories can be organized and sifted through to give a chronological perspective on the news. In terms of the media it is always interesting to see how a story progresses, how it changes over time and as new information becomes available.

The success of Google in a variety of industries is truly revolutionary. This is why it is not a surprise that Google news has excelled in media reporting. Breaking news on Google is also customizable. This means that you can select what kind of news you would like to appear on your page.

Home Business Online Opportunity – Take The Survey Test Now

Are you looking for a home business online opportunity? The internet offers a multitude of home work business opportunities if one is willing to look. One of these is online marketing. More specifically, survey taking.

Lots of big retail chains will pay money to know what you—the consumer—is thinking, giving you a great work at home business opportunity. The internet is full of online businesses looking for people just like you to take surveys and some of these online surveys can pay you as much as $100 per survey, how’s that for a work at home business. Five 10 minute surveys and you could be making up to $500 per day with these home work business opportunities.

A friend of mine used to do this all the time. At first I thought it was absurd. Why would someone pay you to take a survey? But if you think about it, you’ll probably realize that you’ve probably taken a survey in the recent past on the phone. The only difference being, they didn’t pay you!

All you have to do is type in “online surveys” into your favourite search engine, to realize this home business online opportunity. But be careful, some of them may be hoaxes. You need to choose carefully which ones you will do.

Many of them give coupons or gift certificates instead of money. You also need to make sure that they service the country you’re applying from. For instance, if you are from Canada, and doing a survey from the United States, you may not be eligible for the merchandise they give for doing the survey.

Any time you try to make money online, you have to read the fine print. Make sure that the home business online opportunity you choose won’t see you getting ripped off, or wasting your time.

Starting a home business can be very rewarding, both financially and socially and what better way to make money online than spending 10 minutes of your time filling in surveys.

What's Your Passion?

Okay, you've decided you want to make money with Affiliate Marketing. So, you join some affiliate programs and start submitting free ads to newsletters and free advertising classifieds sites. You're going to make BIG money now -- right?

Nope! Sorry! Just sending out a few ads is not going to do it. Not if you want to be a real success.

You must first determine your passion. I mean other than making the money! What is your hobby? What do you know how to do REALLY well? What is your job? Everyone has something that is their own special talent. Find yours.

You probably have more than one thing that you are very interested in and do well. See if you can find five (ten if you're really ambitious). Write them down in a list. Remember, you are going to be spending a lot of time working with this subject. Make sure you enjoy it!

Go down each item on your list. Start writing a rough outline of everything you know about the topic. It doesn't have to be elaborate. This is just to give you an idea of how much information is available for a given subject.

Try mind mapping. Write down the main subject of your idea. Draw a circle around it. Now, start thinking of sub-categories that are related to your main category. Draw a line from your main category and end it with a circle. Put the sub-category title inside this circle. Find as many sub-categories (and sub-sub-categories) as you can.

Go through each of your interests with this procedure. Choose the one that you know the most about and that you can write about comfortably.
What if you "think" you don't know enough about your topic? Then, do some research. Read books and magazines. Do some searches on the Internet. Who knows? You might find an area, a niche, that is just waiting for you to fill it with useful information.

There's a lot more to affiliate marketing, of course. But the first step is to find your passion. Your "passion" doesn't have to be making money on the Internet. It can be cooking, sewing, billiards, or whatever. In fact, it's better if you find a niche that isn't in the online marketing arena because that's what nearly everyone else is doing.

Make your topic unique. Make it yours. And make it your passion. It will pay you well.

Stop Paying For Website Traffic!

Stop paying for your web site visitors. Write an article, submit that article (for free) to the best article directory web sites and see your traffic explode!

Driving more visitors to your web site is just one of the benefits of submitting articles to article directory web sites.

There are other benefits too: Your Google page rank will increase! Your Yahoo and MSN rankings too! Alexa.com ranks web sites based upon web site traffic, so you benefit that way as well.

Distribute articles and establish yourself as an expert. Submit articles to make more sales, to get more web site traffic for free, to increase your website's Google Page Rank & boost your Alexa score.

In my opinion, article publishing is the greatest free traffic generating "secret".

But, I am sure you do not have the time available that it is going to take to submit your articles to twenty, fifty or a hundred article directory web sites.

So, what is the best way to submit your article to as many article directory web sites as possible?

Free article submission? No way. Just SPAM machines that can get you banned from article directories. Cheap article submission services? They lack the professional features that I am looking for. The top-notch ones have almost everything that I am looking for but they are too expensive.

Article submission software is the solution to this problem. Article submission software will store your information, your resource box and article body and visit each of the article directories to log you in and automatically fill in the fields (name, article body, resource box etc) for you. After that, you will need to select the appropriate category for your article and hit the submit article button.

Article writing is not a very easy work but it can become very rewarding. Keep it short, about 400 words. Check your grammar and spelling. Do not copy from other articles. Use a catchy title. Don’t forget to include a call to action and a link back to your web site in your resource box.
