I tried to sell it, but it's small business owners hardly want to buy it. So now I distribute it for free. I was told that some companies include software products in their catalogs and pay a developer each time his product is installed. I've found two such companies Installerex and Betterinstaller. Does it really worth trying? The whole legal process is not so easy, so I'd like to hear some opinions before. Thank you. http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/anyone-tried-installerex-or-betterinstaller#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/823881 Marketing & Advertising Wed, 16 Apr 2014 10:25:55 +0000 Nordick 823881 at http://www.sba.gov If you aren't on page 1 of an online search, then people aren't calling you. http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/if-you-arent-page-1-online-search-then-people-arent-calling-you Think back to the last search you did on Google for anything. Now think about how many pages you went to before you found a site that gave you the information you needed. Stats show that 92% of people doing a search do not make it off of page 1, so your chances of being seen on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th page are next to nothing. Fortunately for small to medium sized businesses this can be rectified. All it take is commitment from the business owner to want to increase their page ranking, and want to get more business. I help businesses everyday increase their online presence through a mixture of online marketing techniques. First, is making sure that you have a website. If you are a business today and don't have a website, you must not want to stay open much longer. In years past you didn't need a website to do business, but it's not the 80's or even the 90's anymore. It doesn't matter what you want or think about having an online presence, the truth is what do your customers think about it. 88% of all customers go online to look for a product or service before going into a store to buy it. That means 88% of your customers are looking for your product or service online, and if you aren't there, then they aren't coming to your location. Once you have a website the next thing is, "How do I get on page 1?" The answer is 2 parts. 1 is search engine marketing or pay per click advertising. This is where you pay each time someone clicks on your ad, and is taken to your website. This is done by a bid process. The 2nd way is search engine optimization, which means your site is naturally served up on page 1 because it is one of the most relevant sites that pertain to the keyword that was searched for. Keeping up with this is not something that a business owner can keep up with, and it's not something your brother-in-law can do for free, on the weekends for you. This needs to be done by a professional who knows what they are doing, and does it for a living. I would get a root canal from the guy who painted my home, so why would you trust your business to someone other than a professional? This could go on forever, but you get the idea of the need to be online, and be on page 1. If you have questions about how i can help you, please send me a response. Or if you just want to discuss it let me know. I want everyone who owns a business to understand the power of page 1, and what it takes to get there. http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/if-you-arent-page-1-online-search-then-people-arent-calling-you#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/825861 Marketing & Advertising Wed, 16 Apr 2014 21:55:56 +0000 keith.black@chron.com 825861 at http://www.sba.gov Download Transcendence full movie Free http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/download-transcendence-full-movie-free-2 Download Transcendence full movie Free http://downloadtranscendencefullmovie.wordpress.com/ The Other Woman Movie Download Free http://theotherwomanmoviedownloadfree.wordpress.com/ The Quiet Ones full movie download http://thequietonesmoviedownload.wordpress.com/ Brick Mansions Full Movie Download http://brickmansionsmoviedownload.wordpress.com/ Download The Amazing Spider Man 2 Full Movie Free http://downloadtheamazingspiderman2movie.wordpress.com/ The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Full Movie Download http://theamazingspiderman2moviedownload.wordpress.com/ Watch The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Full Movie HD http://watchtheamazingspiderman2fullmovie.wordpress.com/ Revolver Rani Full Movie Download Free http://revolverranimoviedownload.wordpress.com/ Kaanchi Movie Download Free http://kanchimoviedownload.wordpress.com/ http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/download-transcendence-full-movie-free-2#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/825831 Marketing & Advertising Wed, 16 Apr 2014 21:39:16 +0000 reky99 825831 at http://www.sba.gov Do you think that using social media is much more preferable for business individuals rather than trusting on the search engines http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/do-you-think-using-social-media-much-more-preferable-business-individuals-rather-trusting-search-engines I have been doing a research on the search engines and social media, most of the users agrees that trusting on search engine is much more preferred than the getting attention in the social media.

An online mugshot can pose irrevocable harm to your online reputation, including your ability to get hired, to build relationships and to be a viable and effective part of your local community. Though there have been many recent newsworthy efforts to fight the proliferation of online mugshots, many people across the country are still left unprotected from the potential damage a mugshot can have on their online image. Two mugshot sites, BustedMugshots.com and Mugshotsonline.com, have recently come to a settlement with the U.S. District Court in Toledo, agreeing to no longer charge for mugshot removal. According to a recent article in TheGuardian.com, the settlement comes as the result of lawsuit filed against the two companies by people unhappy about the charges the sites were imposing to remove the pictures from view. Though this recent settlement may seem like a victory for people affected by the presence of online mugshots, the lawsuit and settlement applied to these two companies only, leaving many scratching their heads as to the best way to reduce or eliminate the impact of an errant mugshot photo. Fortuantely, however, there are solutions available to people whose lives continue to be plagued by the reputation-damaging potential of online mugshots. There are many online reputation management companies that offer a mugshot removal solution; a quality and affordable way to comprehensively remove mugshots from the multitude of mugshot sites on the web. These solutions work to take the photo out of the public realm, eliminating the potential for an embarrassing image to be found by an employer, friend or family member. These removal solutions provide people with an amazingly effective online management tool, allowing them to reestablish control over both their online images and their lives.

I remember having a site rank purely on meta tag data and links. Raking in 100's of leads a day was no problem as it was simple to rank for thousands of different keywords. Now you can rank for keywords, but ranking for multiple important keywords is almost impossible. Google has changed their algorithm to penalize the normal SEO tactics that everyone used and for Good reason their business model is based on selling ad's. If your making money in organics then you don't need to advertise with them. http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/seo-dead#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/811851 Marketing & Advertising Sat, 29 Mar 2014 00:44:00 +0000 Logan Chierotti 811851 at http://www.sba.gov Leverage YouTube to learn things quickly http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/leverage-youtube-learn-things-quickly I wanted to go over quick tip that will speed up your learning ten fold.

If you have employees, set-up a program that rewards them for coming up with great business marketing ideas. If you have a storefront or office that gets a lot of traffic, have a suggestion box where customers can offer their recommendations on what you might do to enhance business. If you are a single proprietor, seek out the advice of others. Organize your own brainstorming group with other business owners to help one another. Remember: no matter how big or small you are there is always a way to augment creative thinking in any business. 1. Listen! Listen! Listen! Have an open ear. Listen to what employees have to say. Listen to what your customers are telling you. Listen to what your business colleagues suggest. Listen to experts in your industry in regards to business marketing trends. Seek out the advice of a professional marketing consultant and listen to what he or she has to say. As Writer/Poet Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.” 2. Think About How To Market Differently Than Your Competition. Take a serious look at how your competition markets and then ask yourself and/or your staff: “How can we market ourselves different from the competition?” “What can we do differently to set us apart?” “What kinds of business marketing tools or measures can we use that our competition isn’t?” 3. Create A Physical Work Environment That Stimulates Creative Thinking. One of the best, easiest and most effective ways to achieve this is to hire a professional organizer. Individuals in this field are well versed on how to effectively organize. This includes knowing how to create an office or workplace environment to enhance creativity depending on a person’s habits and thinking process for stimulating thought. At no time in history has there been more advertising messages thrown at us on a daily basis than today. Therefore, to get people’s attention out of the box marketing is not merely important in doing business, but imperative. So don’t wait another minute, hour or day. Get to work now using these steps to begin beating out your competition with truly creative thinking, when it comes to marketing. The clock is ticking. http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/note-thinking-out-box#comments http://www.sba.gov/crss/node/810871 Marketing & Advertising Thu, 27 Mar 2014 06:05:09 +0000 JamesFCrissman 810871 at http://www.sba.gov What are your best practices for Facebook Ad campaigns for a local/small business? http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/what-are-your-best-practices-facebook-ad-campaigns-localsmall-business I'm kicking off a new Facebook Ad campaign for a local business and breaking my campaigns into two goals: 1) website clicks 2) page likes The CTR for website clicks is pretty expensive - about $2.50 - $3 per click and $4 CMP overall.

Nowadays the meaning of marketing is extremely sophisticated. A good modern definition of marketing must acknowledge that we buy things in far more complex ways than we did fifty years ago, even ten years ago. The internet and social media are major factors in this. Above all, marketing is a reflection of 'the market', and how the market buys and behaves, which especially entails people and society - much broader considerations than purely product and price. As the market evolves in sophistication, so does the way in which we understand what marketing actually is and what it means to conduct marketing well. Advertisement is defined as: "A notice or announcement in a public medium promoting a product, service or event, or publicizing a job vacancy."

The best endorsement of a product or service is from friends and family. The average Facebook user has 190 friends. One strategy I have seen work extremely well for many businesses is getting the customer to &quot;Check-In&quot;. If you offer the customer a 10% discount when they &quot;check-in&quot; that alone reaches an average of 190 possible new customers.
