How to Choose a Shopping Cart Program

Using the right shopping cart program can have a drastic effect on the success of your e-business. If you have a poorly designed shopping cart system, you will lose customers regardless of how great your website is. Consider the factors below when choosing your ideal shopping cart.

How many items do you have to sell?
Many people make the mistake of using shopping carts when there are only a couple of products being sold on the website. In this instance, it is much easier to just setup an online order form. Don’t overdo it with shopping carts unless you will have more products in the near future. Shopping carts, just like the physical tool, are designed for purchasing a large number of products. You wouldn’t haul around a shopping cart in a grocery store just to buy a pack of gum, and neither should you in the online world.

Software or Service Provider
For most small businesses, I recommend using an ASP, which means the shopping cart service is hosted by a third party company. For ASP shopping carts, setup was designed to require no programming skills and very user friendly. Some ASPs also offer packages that include a merchant account and a payment gateway. This takes care of the painstaking process of setting them up separately.

The downsides to an ASP system are the limitations of the control you have over your shopping cart system. For instance, there is only so much you can do to the appearance to your shopping carts. Other features, such as customer tracking, may not be available at all.

ASP Shopping Cart Suggestions
–Uses HTML pages for setup
–Offers many options such as customer tracking
–Includes merchant account in package
–Painless setup

Popular Software Options
– Can be hosted on your server or a remote server
– Browser based admin
– Wizard setup
– Preconfigured payment processing
– Easily expandable
– Low price
– Must be hosted on own server
– Wizard setup
– Configuration editor
– Catalog Wizard

These are just the basics of what the companies above offer. For more information please visit their website.

What is Reverse DNS?

Reverse DNS (Domain Name System) lookup, also known by the acronym (rDNS), is the process by which someone can look up a host name given a particular IP address. Reverse DNS is also known in some places as reverse resolving. It is the opposite of DNS lookup, by which someone looks up an IP address given a particular host name.

Why use Reverse DNS?

A reverse DNS lookup is usually performed for troubleshooting purposes. Commonly, tools like a traceroute or a ping will do a reverse DNS lookup to determine the flow of traffic from one point to another. Another common place for reverse DNS lookup is when accessing a person’s email. Many modern email providers will do reverse DNS lookups to determine if an email was sent from a known spam address. Finally, reverse DNS can be used to make sure that there is a proper relationship between the owner of a server and the owner of a domain name. This technique, known as Forward Confirmed reverse DNS (FCrDNS) is used to put a stop to phishing sites and spammers.

What is IPv4 Reverse DNS lookup?

IPv4 Reverse DNS is a type of reverse DNS that uses a reverse IN-ADDR entry with the special domain “”. The IP address represented in the domain is written in reverse order to the usual way that the IP address is written. For example, if a person was performing a reverse domain lookup for an address such as, he would do the lookup using

What is IPv6 Reverse DNS lookup?

IPv6 Reverse DNS lookup is a type of reverse DNS that uses the special domain Unlike IPv4 Reverse DNS lookup, IPv6 Reverse DNS lookup does not use the standard IP address style of looking up host names. Instead, it uses a sequence of nibbles, or four bit aggregations, in reverse order with each number separated by a period. For example, if a person was performing a reverse domain lookup for an address such as 2001:0db8:0:0:0:0:1428:57ab he would do the lookup using

What happens when there are multiple host names assigned to one IP address?

A reverse DNS lookup will be able to determine all of the host names associated with a particular IP address, though this practice is sometimes frowned upon. Many cheap web hosting plans will offer shared virtual hosts where many sites share space on the same IP address. Although this does not affect the validity of the information returned by a reverse DNS lookup, it can lead to problems with other services.

It All Comes Down To Keyword Research

Keyword research is the basic skill or task that you must master if you want to be at all successful in the business of internet marketing. The essence of marketing is getting customers to buy your product right? And what are the important parts of that task?

Well first you have to have a product. Preferably this product has some demand from the public that give it value. The public then has to know that they have the need that your product can remedy. Then they need to know about your product more than they hear about your competitor's product. How your product is the best that money can buy and all that yada yada. Because you have a limited supply of resources you have to make the most of your efforts which means that you try to target your marketing to the people that are most likely to buy once they have heard about it. On the internet things are a little bit different in that the main way to get your product in front of people, i.e. to get people to your sales page, is via the search engines. This is where keyword research comes in.

Search engines are really the portal for the customer to the internet whether that customer is after information only or to buy a product. They type in a keyword into the search bar and then based on the results will either refine the search further or click through links to get to what he or she is looking for. The general rule is that the higher the result is ranked by the search engine the more hits that link is going to receive. And since it makes sense the more traffic to a sales page the more sales you are going to get you want your page's link to be as high as it possibly can be on the search engine result page. Once again this is done in large part with good keyword research.

Keyword research is the first step in search engine optimization. You see although the search engine's formula is somewhat mysterious, it is not a secret that they base their ranking on the relevance of the page's overall content as it relates to the keyword that was searched. So it is first important to find the most common thing that people type into the search blank when they are looking to fill a need that your product will fill.

Why More Traffic Should Not Be Your Goal

Are you one of those internet marketers who faithfully believe that if they could only increase the traffic to their site they could make a killing?

This is the way most people think. More traffic = higher profits.

But that's not always true. If it is going to do you any good, it has to be 'targeted' traffic. What's the difference?

Targeted traffic consists of people who are interested in your product or service and would be more likely to spend money to get it from you.

Non-targeted traffic consists of the rest of the world. These individuals are not interested in buying what you have and, therefore, will not part with their cash for it.

Since time and money are valuable resources, don't waste them trying to promote your site to people with no interest in your product. Instead, find out where your targeted visitors spend their time. Then you can promote your site there.

For example, let's say you want to promote a site called and one way you will do so is by posting messages in online forums and including a link back to the site in your signature.

Now think about which forums you can post in. There are many popular forums that discuss internet marketing and they have thousands of members. That's a large market, but it is not targeted to your website. Sure, some of them may be interested in an Aruba vacation, but its more likely they are on the forum to read about internet marketing.

A much more efficient choice would be to find forums that actually discuss Aruba, the Caribbean, travel, or some other related topic. The forum you find may only have a few hundred (or even a few dozen) members. But 100% of them are interested in the product, service, or website you are promoting.

Just two more important things to consider:

1. Always read the forum rules before posting. Not all forums allow links to be posted.

2. Do not just write one sentence posts just to get your link posted. That's considered spam.

Instead, write useful and informative posts that will portray you as an expert on the field. People will be more likely to click on your link if you build a reputation on the forum first.

Using Internet Auction Services To Find Baby Items

One of the most widely used types of websites on the Internet in the 21st century are those associated with auction services. The different auction services in operation on the Internet and World Wide Web have continued to enjoy every growing patronage with each and every passing year. If you are a parent who is in the market for different types of products for your baby, you will want to consider spending some time checking out one or another of the different auction sites that are in operation in cyberspace at this point in time.

For example, if you are like most parents, you definitely want to obtain the best possible toys for your little one. Of course, if you are a parent, you likely have set foot in a toy store in the brick and mortar world in recent days. Having been in a toy store in the brick and mortar world, you may have a bit of ticket shock. Indeed, the costs of toys in many of the specialty stores in the brick and mortar world can be high, high, high.

Internet auction sites nearly always have a wide selection of different types of toys and entertainment items for your baby. These sites usually maintain a selection of educational toys as well, including educational toys for babies. (Keep in mind that most experts now agree that it is never to early to begin to expose your children educational toys. Learning begins for children at a very, very young age.)

In addition to toys, auction sites have proven to be very helpful to parents who are looking for clothing for their babies. These sites nearly always and universally maintain a nice size selection of clothing items for babies. By accessing these sites, a parent generally can save a great deal of money on clothing for a baby. (Parents of babies always are on the hunt for ways in which to save money. The 21st century certainly is a time during which parents really do find themselves on tight budgets.)

If you are interested in saving money on items and products for your baby, auction sites can also be helpful when it comes to buying formula and food products for your baby. By shopping at these auction sites, you can save hundreds of dollars on formula and food for your baby over time.

Shopping With Coupon Books: Are They Worth The Price?

You have probably seen coupon books sold for various large cities and may have wondered if they are worth the price. That of course depends on how much you use them. They usually have several thousands of dollars worth of discounts in the coupons inside, and prices range from around $25 to $45, but if you don’t use them, obviously they aren’t worth very much to you. Sometimes they are sold as fundraisers by different groups and you get the added benefit of helping out a worthy cause. Here are some tips to make sure your book isn’t wasted.

First, be realistic about how often you will be in the area. Entertainment publishes editions for 159 localities in the US and Canada. If the one nearest you is a couple of hours away, you may not use it very much and end up wasting your money. On the other hand, if you are planning a vacation to one of the destinations that has an Entertainment coupon book, you will probably be hitting a lot of restaurants, hotels, attractions, rental cars, etc. and these are exactly the type of items that these coupon books have the most savings for. In addition, if you are taking your trip in the summer or fall, wait to order your book until a few weeks before your trip, since prices on the books usually drop as the year progresses because you will have a shorter window of time to use them.

If you are considering buying a book for your local area, look through it before you purchase it and ask yourself the same questions you would if you were looking through your Sunday circulars or packs of coupons you get in the mail for free. Are these places and products you use anyway, or ones you want to try? If so, the book is probably a good value. But if you wouldn’t have considered going to the attractions, restaurants, or other coupon items, it isn’t really a savings for you to pay for the book and then pay for half of an event you wouldn’t have paid anything for because you wouldn’t have gone if you didn’t have the coupon.

Consider sharing a book with a neighbor or with family and guests that come to town frequently. This way you can still benefit from the book but at a reduced cost and everyone gets things that they will use.

Here’s How Paid Online Surveys Work!

Ok the first thing that I have to give is a warning. Be very careful and do your research which should include the specific companies that you are considering joining up with and finding as much feed back from those who “have gone before” you. Here is the deal—just like with anything else in this world and unfortunately especially on the internet you are going to find that for every legitimate web site out there offering you hundreds of dollars of consistent income per day there are 20 more that are a bunch of broken promises. So please, BE CAREFUL, and keep this in mind as you get excited about the potential that paid online surveys have to supplement your income.

Another huge thing that you have to realize is that most of the paid online survey sites are not the actual sites that you will do the surveys for and get paid by. They are simply the gateway that has organized the opportunities and given you direct access to the different companies that are seeking input for their product or service, or are simply performing market analysis research. These sites charge (if they are real) will charge you a one time fee and this is to pay the real live online support that they provide to their members that need help or have questions about these survey jobs.

So do your research, understand the process, and then you can start earning money. It is well within the average computer user’s ability to make several hundred dollars per day while working about 3 or 4 hours per day filling out paid online surveys. Sounds good right? Another cool thing is that these sites will organize the type of job so that you are making comments and answering questions about stuff that you know and enjoy rather than trudging through material that you have no idea or interest in.

These companies (the real ones) are your friends. They do everything that they can to help your work go smoothly and to help you do things faster and make more money. The sites even sometimes offer you software that allows you to fill out more paid online surveys in less time than. This software is something they could easily charge for but the don’t, and it really increases your income potential.

The magnificent power of the press release

However large your company might be and whatever services or products it provides, it must always communicate with its customers. It should gain publicity and credibility. One of the most widely used tools to achieve this is advertisement. Nevertheless, one should not forget that however effective and appealing your advertisement might be, most of people tend to regard it as oversimplified and exaggerated statement. Really, in my experience, few of potential customers take your every word for its value in the advertisement. So how can you win the credibility of your company?! The credibility can be won if your statement is appeared in trusted and trustworthy information resources. Many research show that people trust more opinions of independent mass media and their representatives such as editors, journalists and radio commentators than the statements of salesmen and advertisement specialists.

The company can communicate with press by using press release service issued to mass media representatives. Press release services are one of the most effective means to gain the attention both of the public and press. How this statement should be written?! The most important point of the press release is its newsworthiness. If you organize some events, issue new products or start providing new services –than this is a sufficient ground for the issuing of the press release. The press release should be easy-to read and informative, it should not be confused with the advertisement. The press release should not be too long, neither it should be too short. One of the most important elements of the press release is its headline. The headline should grab the attention of the reader and provides your reader with the information on the purpose of your press release. The reader must know what your press release is about right from the start, from the first seconds of reading the headline.

Try to avoid using exaggerations. It might be difficult sometimes especially if the company starts providing new services or products. Remember that your story will be read by highly skeptical and even distrustful media representatives. They can be impressed only by true, credible facts rather than by the statements that might not correspond with the reality. If you follow these simple rules, than you will be able to write press release that will impress press representatives.

Recognizing Signs Of Online Danger

Online crimes against children are on the rise. Research has shown that one out of every five children online is susceptible to being approached by an individual attempting to solicit sex. These predators, predominately male, are likely to frequent unmonitored chat rooms, dating websites, and online friends sites like MySpace and HI5 in order to meet their potential victims. He can pose as anyone of any age or sex, often sending fake photos of himself. Once he gains your child’s confidence, he may ask for personal information, an exchange of photos or try to set up a face-to-face meeting. Many predators even feel comfortable sending children pornography after a friendship has developed. There are many missing children each year that are a result of meeting their online predators – a parent’s worse fear come true!

What can you do to protect children from falling victim to online dangers? The best way is to educate both yourself and your child on Internet child safety. Know the danger signs. Does your child hide the screen quickly when you walk in? Do they spend hours and hours online chatting? Have they become moody and withdrawn from the family? There are several ways you can protect your child from online threats. Open the door of communication with your child. Don’t be afraid to ask who they are talking to or what they are doing when they spend a large amount of time online. If they seem annoyed by your questions, calmly explain that there are predators out there looking for children to converse with and you are only concerned with their safety. Ask them to show you their favorite sites and take time to see if they are age appropriate. You can also place the computer in a community room, such as a den or living room. If a predator thinks a parent is nearby, he is less likely to communicate with a teen. If someone is continually harassing your child online, you can contact your Internet provider to see what protection they can offer.

If you see an email in which someone has sexually solicited your child or sent them child pornography, contact the FBI or local police immediately.

Webmail – Still A Useful Alternative

Webmail is becoming an increasingly popular form of internet communication. Virtually ever internet user now has a webmail address through providers such as hotmail, Gmail, yahoo, and others.

Webmail is a good alternative to many internet users over the traditional email server as it can be accessed from anyplace with an internet connection. There is no need to be connected to the computer which contains your IP address.

Webmail also offers filtering services that take some of the inconveniences out of running every attachment you receive through a virus detections program. Webmail servers depend on customer satisfaction to keep them going, so their virus detection software is almost always top of the line.

In addition, webmail providers often include filtering processes through which unwanted mail is delivered to a junk box, and needs never be seen by the person using the mail.

Most webmail accounts now also offer free connectivity to other users of the service, so that you can talk to friends while you are online without having to go to a chatroom or other service to do it.

There are a few inconveniences to using a webmail system, however. Businesses often browse the database for addresses, and then send unwanted mail to your account. This mail can sometimes make it through the filter, although the filters are becoming better and better.

Sometimes, the filter can be too good. If you are giving out your webmail address to potential clients and employers, or anywhere else, it is important to check your junk mail before it is emptied (this is usually done automatically every few days) to make sure you are not missing an important message.

The advantages of webmail far outweigh the inconveniences. The filters are designed to err on the side of caution, so they are highly effective when it comes to scanning your unsolicited email. You can also use them in the same way that you would use a normal email account, to record addresses and have a list of favorites for handy reference. Most even supply useful conveniences like schedules and multiple folder options.

Website Statistics with Cpanel

If you own one or more websites, it is vitally important to know how many people are visiting your site and where these visitors originate from. Analyzing website statistics should become a regular habit for every webmaster who wishes to improve website traffic over time. You'll be able to test and track the popularity of your updated site content and even see how visitors find your site in the search engines.

There are many web statistics programs on the market, each one unique in price and features, but did you know that some of the best website statistic programs already come free with most web hosting plans?

If you have a hosting account for your website that includes cpanel, then you probably have a whole bunch of web statistic programs built in. Cpanel is by far the most popular control panel for web hosting accounts today. It is extremely easy to learn and use for regular website administration.

There are usually 3 different types of statistics you will find inside cpanel. These are known as Analog, Webalizer and Awstats.

Webalizer is a statistic program that shows you in a graph form how many visitors have visited your site month by month. This type of statistics is very basic and only takes a quick glance to receive your web site information. If you want more detailed information you will probably need to check out the other two statistic programs.

Analog and Awstats each offer different presentation styles. All the essential visitor information you probably wish to see is listed on Analog, but most people have difficulty finding it as it is primarily text based and requires close attention.

Awstats on the other hand, is usually the favorite web site statistic program on cpanel. Not only does it give you plenty of visitor information, from number of hits per day and month, it also tells you where they originate from, how long visitors stayed at your site, the country from which they are viewing your site, what browser they are using and much more. Basic colored graphs and simple to read layout make it a quick and easy task to find the information that you are looking for.

So if you have a website and would like to know more about your visitors check out your cpanel statistic programs inside your website hosting account. They can be extremely helpful in analyzing your site and drawing more traffic to it.

What Do Ebay Buyers Really Want?

If you were considering selling products on eBay, would it help you to know what ebay buyers were looking for, and no one else was supplying? It seems like a rhetorical question with an obvious answer but few ebay sellers are taking advantage of an opportunity that is basically free for the taking.

On the eBay site there is a section called "Want-It-Now" and you've likely seen it but you should really look into it because there is a literal goldmine of information available to anyone who takes the time to analyse the data supplied.

Smart eBay sellers are using this readily available information to extract high demand and low competition product and niche selling ideas from the data.

The "Want It Now" section is a place where hungry eBay buyers post their requests to purchase a specific product or service. eBay sellers can respond to these posts by directing the prospective buyer to their own auctions.

If a lightbulb is going off in your head right now, then you are very astute and ahead of the curve in terms of competive market advantage.

It's a simple idea and you are looking for a repetitive trend in what "Want It Now" buyers are looking for. If several posts are seeking the same product or service then you've identified a high demand niche with the potential for great selling opportunities.

The key though, is to identify those product niches that receive little or no responses from eBay sellers. Once you've targeted these, you have the sellers optimum situation and that is a high demand product with low competition.

So far it sounds quite straight forward but the in depth analysis required to really find the gems is a little more complicated. The way I had been doing this was to import the raw "Want It Now" data into a spreadsheet program like Excel, in order to sort the data and identify the most promising markets. I'm not really proficient with excel so this became a major hurdle.

Fortunately I stumbled across a software solution which simplified the process for me and in a few minutes was able to extract the "Want It Now" data uncovering high demand, low competition product or niche ideas in minutes.

Which Product should you sell on Internet?

If you sell or intend to sell on the web, with your website or on ebay, you must sell digital info products, like ebooks, software...

Do you now what the best product to sell on the Internet today?
You may have your own home business, with or without success, but now, you do not have time to spend with your family, friends, because you can' t move from your computer, waiting for customers queries, taking care about shipping, orders...
This is what I have just discovered in a unique video tutorial program ( you will not find this anywhere). You must sell an INFO PRODUCT.
Well, you may ask what the heck is INFO PRODUCT.
INFO PRODUCT is THE product to sell on the Internet

Because it is what Internet surfers want: Informations, informations and informations! You will have more benefits with INFO PRODUCT than any other product! Those are YOUR benefits with an INFO PRODUCT:
Low cost to create. It is fast and easy to create. You have an unlimited inventory. You do not need to manufacture. It is delivered automatically because it is a digital product.
You just create it, then upload it, and you have now your product ready to deliver and be transformed in a money machine.
This is what we will call your ASSET.

Now the customer benefits:
The product he ordered is delivered immediately on his desktop
and ready to use. He doesn't need to go out from home. Most of the prospects on the Internet are impulsive buyers, they want it know and tomorrow will be too late. There are many others benefits...

Where can you find info products?
The best of all is that those info products, you can find them in yourself, for instance, you have a passion, something that you learned. You can transform that knowledge into an Ebook. Let' see now some type of info product:
You could sell an e book, or an audio product, or a video product.
Do not forget, that step is crucial:
You must have an USP to succeed.
Well, you want to know... It is your Unique Selling Proposition. I mean that it will be your product, your unique proposition to the prospects. That will really make the difference.
I hope that you enjoyed the first lesson, and that all those
benefits will make your Internet marketer life better.

Unique Spin-Offs For Making Money Online

It seems as though everyone is selling stuff on ebay or writing the next great ebook, and those just don’t seem like things you would be interested in. However, perhaps you also realize that the Internet is a great way to make extra money, employing multiple streams of income that you can apply to the rapidly growing pile of bills over there. Here are some unique spin offs on typical Internet businesses that you should feel free to tweak to your liking:

One Stop Tourist Shop: Do you live somewhere that people like to visit? If so, you might be in luck. Think about opening up a one stop shop where potential tourists can not only buy travel information and brochures, but where they can also shop for souveniers that they can get shipped to them, so that they don’t have to lug them home in their suitcases (and break that pesky 50 pound limit). You might also think about putting up an “ask a local” area where, for a small fee, visitors can ask you for advice about getting around, great places to eat, little known attractions, etc. It would also be a great place to promote an ebook – by you!

Love Letter Writer: So you’ve heard of greeting card writers – why not advertise your services as a love letter writer? You could either set up your own site and market it on the search engines, or post advertisements on popular sites such as Interested parties can contact you directly for help in writing the perfect love letter. You would be surprised at how many people find it difficult to find the right thing to say when it comes time to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard!).

Local Online Babysitting Club: Moms unite! If you are a stay at home mom and know others like you, think about putting together a club that offers your parenting services to other parents who need a few hours away. Parents can either trade time, or charge per hour to take care of other children. By setting up this business on the Internet, you can avoid the awkward chit chat and get down to the business of raising kids.

Swapclix: Pull Profit From Clicks!

So, What Exactly Is Swapclix?

Have you been thinking bout the SwapClix program? The sales page doesn't exactly provide a wealth of information, so allow me to give you the lowdown! Swapclix is a particularly simple concept that instructs you to place ads search engines, then...when people click your ads...they are then directed to your webpage where YOU get PAID 25 cents to over $1 when that visitor clicks the ads that are displayed on your page!

Will Swapclix Work For Me?

Ok, heres my take on it! I bought SwapClix in December last year. With Swapclix you get software that produces your actual webpage... it turned out very simple to use by the way... and following the step by step guide provided i managed to put together my first fully fledged Swapclix site in a little over a day. Over the next 24 hours it generated $4 for me. The first site proved to be the toughest to put together because the second Swapclix site took only 1 hour to produce and started doing $5 profit. I now have close to 30 little Swapclix sites... easily built during the odd spare hour... and each one pulls in between $3 and $8 every day. That means my Swapclix sites are currently bringing in about $150 per day! Can't be bad!

What Makes Swapclix Stand Out?

It goes without saying that there are thousands of programs out there that promise to make you money online. In my opinion the most outstanding feature of Swapclix is the fact that it doesn't require you to sell ANYTHING! All you need to do is get people to click your ads. Swapclix does an excellent job of explaining it all and provides his simple software to do it.

Last, Question....Do You Recommend Swapclix?

The one thing that irritated me slightly about Swapclix is the fact that despite what the sales page promises, it takes longer that 15 minutes to create a Swapclix page. It took me a full day to create my first one, although it does get easier.

Other than that, I think Swapclix is GREAT! Its a dead simple program that provides you with all you need to create money machine after money machine!

Solid Suggestions To Earn Extra Money Online

There are many ways to earn extra money online. Don’t worry, though, this article isn’t about to suggest you start buying into those too-good-to-be-true internet scams that promise you the world and deliver nothing but snake oil. These suggestions to earn extra money are legitimate and proven.

One way to earn extra money online is to participate in affiliate advertising or banner exchange programs. One of the most popular of these programs is Google AdSense, which has definitely helped people all over the world using the websites and blogs they are maintaining anyway to earn extra money. How this works is that you sign up as a member of one of these programs, then insert a few simple lines of code into your web space. The program does the rest by placing ads on your web space that are directly related to the content in your site. Your visitors are seeing ads that are relevant to their interests and every single time they click, you earn extra money. This method is only hugely profitable for very high traffic sites, but even if you earn extra money in very small amounts, considering there is absolutely no start-up cost to you, this is still an excellent method to earn extra money.

You might also consider a retail or sales affiliate program to earn extra money through your website.

Part Time Income

Many people love the idea of having some extra part time income and are able to enjoy time with my family and friends. Some work part time and are involved in a variety of loose-ended jobs: delivering newspapers, selling encyclopedias door to door and even selling a little insurance. Although these experiences teach the basics of sales techniques and perseverance, they rarely offer any significant amount of income. Some even try the infamous MLM opportunities and, as many, are thoroughly disappointed.

Some of these so-called “home based businesses” promise a lot of people of achieving great wealth. They prey on unsuspecting folks with the idea of utilizing their families and friends and then having them recruit their friends, as well, for the purpose of generating sales. Some even require big start up costs for the purchase of their products and then a sacrifice of the first couple of sales to a “sponsor” or “mentor” before any income is reflected. Lastly, money back guarantees are rarely offered.

Scams are everywhere: illegal pyramids, ponzi, chain letters and gifting schemes. The owners of these companies love the idea of taking advantage of the individuals recruited performing all of the sales for them while they are banking the money. What is worse is that these people had to spend practically an arm and a leg to even get access to these programs. They offer absolutely no support and never respond to any email inquiries or telephone calls. A complete waste of time!!! As the old saying goes, if it looks to good to be true than it probably is.

What ever happened to good old fashion instruction on how you can build your part time home based business - establishing sound fundamentals with little or no-start up costs. People want to find a particular income vehicle that they can operate out of the comfort of their own home. The Internet has provided this as a reality for many in the form of Internet Marketing. Remember making money part time does not have to be laborious in nature. If you have a skill to offer or hobbies that you enjoy, these also can be made into income producing revenue. There are a many available resources online that can teach you on how to get it started. Instruction is the key so become a student of the Internet and you too will see your part time income soar.

Shopping On-line - safely.

There are thousands of online stores selling everything, and giving you access to a wider range of goods and services than ever before at your finger tips - and at way lower prices than your corner store. But as the number of on-line shops grow - so does the number of people trying to make the “fast buck“.

While the majority of stores offer a great service, consumers should exercise care when shopping on-line with a new site for the first time. There are a few simple guidelines to follow which should make your shopping experience rewarding and profitable.

If you are dealing with a company for the first time make sure you read the terms and conditions of the on-line store.

Also check their web site for a postal address and a telephone number - most genuine companies have no problem publishing their postal address on their website and should have a contact page with their address and company details on it.

Also read their privacy policy carefully.

Within the European Union, customers are entitled to a full refund when shopping on-line, if the goods are returned within seven days of purchase and the seller must state this on their on-line store. If a company does not state this, a customer is entitled to a full refund if they return the goods within thirty days.

The safest way to buy on-line is by using your credit card or paying by cheque. Cheques must to be lodged into a bank account to clear, and credit card payments can only be made into a company’s bank account. If a company seeks payment by any other means, be wary - when you buy on-line you want your payment to be traceable.

Most reliable retail sites offer a ten to thirty day, full refund, but postal charges are normally not included in this. Standard practice is that the customer pays for the postal charges if they are returning an item.

When you do shop on-line, check your credit card statement. If you do notice unauthorised transactions, notify your credit card company. Credit card companies will follow-up your complaint and refund your card.

Every day there seems to be new reports of shoppers getting ripped-off when shopping on-line. A common way is where someone transfers money through a cash transfer company to pay for an object; the seller receives the money but fails to send the buyer the item.

Be very wary of these rogue scams. A reliable shopping site will have a credit card billing system, such as Paypal built into their website.

Simple, Effective Small Business Website Tips

When you are a small business looking to create a space online (and it’s not your area of expertise), in many cases, less is more. Keep your website simple with only needed information that will not appear outdated or have one functional area that can feature updated items. Often people fail to realize the dedication and time it takes to keep a content heavy and interactive website fresh. You need to spend your time capturing and responding to leads, as well as the other hats you may wear.

To start look through the eyes of the customer to identify what information is really needed on your website. Don’t try to be flashy, always focus on filling a need.

Next try to define your business in less than 2 paragraphs. Use bullet points and tag lines to get across the most important messages. People digest content in bite-size portions online.

Always have multiple ways to contact you – contact forms are the easiest way to be contacted and also shield your e-mail address from spiders that might see fit to crawl and add you to their spam list. Depending on your situation include a business address and telephone number.

Come up with one, great promotional opportunity that can be a part of your website always. This makes marketing easy if you just focus on a main promotion that you do not need to update regularly. It can be something like 10% off if they found you via Craigslist or $10 off for all new customers. It’s a great way to be acquisition aggressive, while enjoying a tracking mechanism as well.

Some other helpful hints:

- Don’t Use Frames
- Always Own Your Domain, Graphics and Content.
- Buy a Domain Made up of Great Search Terms
- Name Pages on the Website with Target Search Terms
- Use Flash Only if You Must – Most Businesses Should Not
- Get a Maintenance Contract with a Reputable Web Designer. This Keeps Costs Down and Makes Changes Easy.

Submitting Your Site To Directories For Free Links

If you're like most webmasters, you're always looking for ways to get links to your site. Of course, if they're one way links, all the better! Well, submitting your site to directories not only offers you one ways, you can get them for free.

If you follow a few rules when submitting your site to various directories, you'll greatly increase the number of directories that accept your link, so increasing the number of links you get.

Many directories publish a comprehensive list of rules for submitting to their site, but here are a few general rules that will put you in good stead.

1 – No promotional language – avoid promotion type language in your title and description. Avoid things like “click here” “save big”, etc.

2 - Don't keyword stuff – While you want your keywords in your title and description as possible, don't stuff them with your keyword. You want it to look official and natural.

3 – Give valid contact info – When you submit your listing, use yourreal name and email address. It will greatly increase your chances of acceptance.

4 – Submit to the deepest relevant category – Don't submit to a main category unless there is not a subcategory that fits your site. For examle, should be submitted to Computers > Internet > Search > Search Engines, not just to the Computers category

5 – Site guidelines – in general, directories will only accept unique, content rich sites. Most directories will not accept Adsense sites, scraper sites, doorway pages, etc.

6 – Submit your homepage – Don't submit sub-pages unless the directory states you may – most directories will deny sub-page listings.

Bonus tip – Here's a way to greatly speed up your directory submissions. Use a form fill plug in for your browser that automatically fills in your url, title, description, etc. I use and recommend RoboForm, but you may find a better free one somewhere.

What is Wmiprvse.exe?

wmiprvse.exe is one of the many processes that runs behind the scenes on Microsoft Windows operating systems such as XP and Vista. wmiprvse.exe is designed to work with the Windows Management Instructions (WMI) operations of the winmgmt.exe application. Unlike many of the behind the scenes processes found on Windows, wmiprvse.exe is a required process and should not be quit.

What does the wmiprvse.exe process actually do?

The wmiprvse.exe application was designed to provide management and control operations for enterprise environments. However, although it is designed to make enterprise computing easier, it is also required for home users as well.

wmiprvse.exe was introduced in Windows XP as a way to make sure that other services do not quit if a particular host process fails. In previous Windows operating systems, if one service went down, the entire application had to be restarted the next time a program requested information from the Windows Management instructions.

What if there are multiple instances of wmiprvse.exe running at once?

This is perfectly normal. A fully functioning Windows computer often requires different accounts to all run wmiprvse.exe. Expect to see wmiprvse.exe run by LocalService, LocalSystem, and NetworkService.

Where is wmiprvse.exe located?

The application for wmiprvse.exe is always located in the C:\Windows\System32\Wbem folder under Windows XP systems.

What if wmiprvse.exe is located elsewhere?

If you find that wmiprvse.exe is running from another folder, chances are that it is a trojan, or some other type of virus. There are several types of malware that masquerade as wmiprvse.exe because it is a common system process that unknowing users are unlikely to detect. However, a quick examination of your running processes and their locations is an easy way to determine if you are infected by a wmiprvse.exe type malware.

In the event that you are infected with a wmiprvse.exe virus, attempt to terminate the rogue wmiprvse.exe application and remove it from your system. This may require booting into safe mode and manually removing it, or your anti-virus program may be able to do the job for you. Furthermore, if the wmiprvse.exe is serious, there may be a Windows update that is designed to remove or patch the exploit that the virus is currently taking advantage of.

What if I have wmiprvsw.exe running?

wmiprvsw.exe is the application that corresponds to the well known Sasser worm, It is in your best interest to remove this application immediately.

Meet Your Toolbox: Wrenches

There are many types of wrenches available at your local home improvement or hardware store, indeed you can get large sets of them. But if you are a typical homeowner doing small projects around the house, you may wonder if all that is really necessary and if it is, how can you convince your wife of it? Seriously, if you want to know what to buy to fit the highest number of situations you’ll probably come across, here are the basics.

An adjustable wrench is your best bet because it is versatile. It will fit many different sized nuts and bolts, without having to have an individual wrench for each size. But, you say, there are different sizes of adjustable wrenches, too. Yes, there are. One that opens to 5/16” should suit most of your needs. When you use an adjustable wrench, make sure that it is tightened as much as possible around whatever you are trying to turn or loosen. Otherwise, it may give and scrape the surface of whatever you’re working on or even worse, your hand.

Another common type of wrench that you will see around the home is the allen wrench. When you think wrench, these are not the image that pops into your head. They are usually L or S shaped and the head fits into the top of a nut (usually with a hexagon shape). The wrench is then turned to tighten or loosen the nut. You will see these a lot with bicycles, in-line skates, and probably at lot of assemble it yourself furniture that you get at warehouse or department stores. Oftentimes, these types of items that require allen wrenches will come with them, included with the rest of the hardware for the item, but you may someday need to purchase some yourself. You can get many different sizes available on a keychain for a relatively small price.

Box wrenches or socket wrenches come in individual sizes to fit standard and metric fasteners. These are the ones that come in the big kits. If you do buy a set, make sure you check to see if it is standard or metric or both. Standard will probably be best for most things around the house. If you’re working on cars, depending on the make, you may need metric. For sockets, look for ratcheting wrenches that do the turning for you to save your wrists.

The Easy Way To Kill Your On-Line Business!

A lot of websites floating around today have missed their chances of success at on-line business. When we take a look at the search results for any topic we need, many of the results that crop up do not even remotely seem to be professional. All of these are aimed to catch your eye with graphics, animations and the works. Organization, Navigation and aesthetics have gone for a toss.

How in the world do these websites intend to make or expect a sale? If a company does not take care and pride in its website, it would be wrong to assume that they take care and pride in providing products or services. Graphics do not make sales, far from it they minimize the chances of a sale and drive the visitors away due to the confusion and slow loading times.

The website that you conduct your business on is a direct reflection of your personality and your business. The appearance counts on all fronts – professionalism, content, organization and value of products and services. Aesthetics have a value, never bypass them.

Content is the most important consideration. Content should have value and links should be relevant. When a visitor visits to your site, the objective of his visit should be fulfilled. If not, the visitor moves on to the next and may never come back. If you want that the visitors stay at your site and come back to it always provide quality content and keep changing it every now and then. Give the visitor a reason.

Do what you may to succeed but never commit the following sins if you want to succeed in your online endeavors. You website should not have:

• Vague and irrelevant content
• Slow loading times
• Errors in Spelling and Grammar
• Unprofessional appearance
• Missing contact information
• Confusing navigation
• Too many animated graphics
• Long pages to scroll
• Distracting and bright backgrounds
• Too many banners and frames
• Extra large fonts
• Unevenly balanced pages
• Psychedelic and multi-colored text
• Missing Meta tags
• Too many fonts
• Signs showing “Under construction”
• Too many “mouse over effects”

Designing a professional website is a time consuming process – take your time but do it right.

What To Look For In A Turnkey Website

A lot of places online offer turnkey websites, all ready for you to buy and start making money. Have you ever thought about trying one of these turnkey businesses for yourself? Before you consider buying a turnkey website, here is a short checklist to make sure you're going to have everything you need to make money with it.

The first thing you will need to do is see the site itself, and ensure you see it in action from the potential customers point of view. It will be no use having a website which looks nice but is too difficult for your potential clients to use. Make sure all the functions, and links are working and that the website does as it should.

Next you will need to see if your potential turnkey website is easy enough for you to use. A lot of sellers of turnkey sites will let you log in to the administration panel and have a play around with the features in there. Take the opportunity to make sure you are confident in changing aspects of the site, and that you will be able to understand the functions well enough to set up the site the way you want.

You may find that the turnkey system includes a domain name and hosting, although some sellers will just offer an installation service included in the purchase price. If you are getting a domain name and hosting, check first the price you will pay for the hosting service after the initial period which is included in the sale. Some less scrupulous dealers will offer you a great price for the turnkey website package but lock you into an expensive monthly hosting contract, and it can be quite difficult for the inexperienced to move a site once it is setup and running. A reasonable price to pay for a domain hosting account is $3-$6 a month depending on the size and usage you expect the site to get.

A turnkey website can be a goldmine when you ensure it is setup correctly from the start, so make sure you look carefully at the whole turnkey package before buying. It can save you a lot of problems later, if you check everything now, and your turnkey site could become one of your best investments ever.

Shopping Online – Protect Yourself

These days, there are great bargains to be found by shopping online. Many items that previously were only available in stores are now being bought and sold online every day. Books, cds, DVDs and electronics are all growing in popularity as online purchases. Then there are things like flights, hotel bookings, car rentals and the like that are which are well established in the online shopping world. More and more stores are putting up websites that allow you to make online orders and even supermarkets now let you do your grocery shopping online and they’ll deliver the goods to your door.

Added to this growth in stores and other big business websites, there are also millions of small traders offering you goods online too. Online auction sites such as ebay are experiencing phenomenal success. These types of purchases however carry the risk that you do not really know who you are dealing with but you have to give them sensitive financial information in order to pay for your purchases. You are forced to choose between buying from small sellers and then trust them with your card details, or forgo the opportunities they offer and deal only with large and trusted names.

Payment Sites

This problem has been recognised and that is why it is now possible to shop online from lots of small sellers while maintaining your privacy and keeping your financial information secure. There are payment sites with the most popular probably being paypal, that are set up specifically to deal with issues like these. Indeed, paypal is now owned by ebay, which shows the link in importance between the two services offered by these companies.

What websites like paypal allow you to do is pay open an online account for free. You can then transfer money into your account using a standard credit card payment procedure. The advantage of this is that while you are providing your card information to paypal, this is the only company who you are giving this information to and since they are large and therefore, hopefully, trustworthy, your privacy and security should be safe.

Then when you make all your various purchases with smaller, more anonymous traders, all you do is make the payment through paypal and this avoids all the dangers having to give all your sensitive data out again and again. It is another example of how using credit cards online are becoming safer and more convenient.

Incredible power of the press release service

However large your company might be whatever niche of the market it operates in and whatever services or products it provides, it should always stay in touch with the public. Even if the company has large pool of steadfast and reliable customers, it nevertheless bound from time to time to inform them about the latest developments in the company. Nowadays people tend to regard advertisement as oversimplified and exaggerated statement. Only few of them really believe in the text they see on the billboards. How their trust, their confidence can be won? What measures should be taken by the company to gain their attention?

The answer is simple-the company should create press release. A press release is a short (usually not more than one page) informative letter that provides the reader with information on the latest newsworthy developments in your company. It must contain your address as well as the name of the company; the first paragraph of the press release should answer several questions, the most important of which are what, where, when. By creating press releases the company can gain the attention of mass media representatives. Journalists, correspondents, editors and commentators are trusted; the public is inclined to listen to their points of view as people hold the belief that they express independent and impartial opinions. However, writing press release is not composing another advertisement; rather one should focus on some newsworthy event that should be revealed to the public. If you have written and composed press release and it looks more like an advertisement try to rewrite it until it looks like an informative article in the newspaper, magazine or scientific journal.

What can be gained by this? Even as the companies frequently write and publish press releases only few people in my experience really understand the benefits of the pres releases. By publishing them you get the maximum exposure of you company. Wherever advertisement might cost you much energy, skills and certainly money, the writing of the press releases is one of the most effective, custom-oriented and cost-effective marketing tools. Even the giants of the business publish press releases from time to time, and it imperative for the new starters to get maximum possible exposure for their businesses. One should remember that it is extremely difficult to survive in today’s highly competitive and ever-changing environment without it.
