Quality Search Engine Optimization Companies

Featured

There’s nothing like being able to find a cheap SEO service that actually works. I can’t even begin to count the number of times that i have been burned by an SEO company that promised great results returning with nothing to show for the money that I paid. At least, not in any meaningful way. When you’re paying something like $500 a year for search engine optimization services, you really should get more for your money instead of a couple of keywords that have been brought up to top 20 ranking. That’s not the kind of service I want.

I want a service that’s cheap and I want it to have a reliable network. Continue reading

I Needed to Have More Fans and Plays

Featured

I have been posting my music to the Reverbnation website for a couple of years. I was slowly gaining fans, but my numbers were still bleak compared to others who started posting just recently. Some of the songs that I listened to were not that good either, at least not compared to what I do, and I knew that I had to do something different to get more fans and plays on the site. I was not sure how to do this though, so I did a search for buy Reverbnation plays. I figured there had to be a company out there that could help me with this, but I was surprised to see just how many there are. Continue reading

Buying Twitter Followers to Improve My Numbers

Featured

I know a lot of companies use Twitter to move their products, and I am no different in that respect. I don’t have a physical product though. Mine is simply a blog that I write every day. I make no money off of the people who read it, but I do make money from the advertisers who post on my blog page. Because of this, I knew that I had to build up my following on all social media sites. The one I had the most trouble with was Twitter, but then I found I could buy twitter followers.

I had not used Twitter a lot up to that point. It was not because I didn’t like the platform, because I actually do now that I have used it a good bit. I just didn’t know enough about it. I knew that I had to show a loyal following already before others would take me serious there. It just made sense, because I would be the same way with someone I was going to follow.

Got a Job for an Album Cover

Featured

Popularity Contest Now On DatPiffI was sitting in the library today when this guy came up. I did not know who he was, but he knew me. I had been working for a guy who emcees parties around here. He wanted to buy datpiff views and promote his mix tapes, but he needed to have a cover to go on his mix tape. It was a simple job. I did it in about an hour and a half without any difficulty. I charged the guy very little. In fact he gave me thirty bucks and a twelve pack of craft beer. He tried to argue that Pabst Blue Ribbon was a craft beer, but that was not our deal and I got him to get me a 12 pack of some really great India Pale Ale from the grocery store on Walker Avenue, they have a huge selection of really good beer on sale there.

At any rate this guy liked the album cover, even though I did not think it was a very good design. Continue reading

Corporations on Social Media: Great for Consumers?

Featured

These days, companies really can’t afford not to have a social media presence. At least, that’s what they say, so I went looking to see whether I could find companies who had one. Did you know that LinkedIn has a Facebook page? That impressed me in a strange way. And of course, I was able to find behemoths like Walmart, category killers like Walgreens, and consultancies like mandrien on twitter.

Personally, I like that they’re all there. Not so much because, hey, I have a Facebook page or a Twitter account and this makes those companies Just Like Me. No, more because this means they care enough that if I wanted to talk to them, or even just was bothered enough by their service, or their competitors’, I feel like they would make a point of noticing my complaint or my interest.

It’s like complaining about a business on Yelp, but you often get even faster response times, from what I hear. For example, a friend of mine had some issue with a Walgreens pharmacy in her city. They must have had one of their customers’ phone numbers wrong, because they kept calling her whenever that other person’s prescription was ready. She doesn’t take any medication regularly, so this eventually got her annoyed enough that she mentioned it in a Tweet. Not one to Walgreens (she didn’t even know they were on Twitter), just one to her friends.

She told me that the company’s Twitter account sent her a Tweet within about 10 minutes and had the problem fixed for her later that day. It’s not remotely possible that that would happen just by writing a company anymore, is it? I don’t believe so. Heck, I was impressed that it happened at all.

If that’s the brave new frontier that companies are willing to broach when they come to Twitter and Facebook and other places that their customers hang out, I think it’s a great thing. We all deserve customer service like that, and I like to think that companies will only come to socialize with us this way if they’re prepared to give it!

Tips on Setting Up a Solid LinkedIn Profile

Featured

Social media is exploding, and LinkedIn is one of the best sites when it comes to making professional connections with others. However, many people aren’t sure how to set up their page to maximize the effect their profile can have. It is always a good idea to look at an example of how someone else has set up their page; it can help you to craft something, with your own spin, that is professional and noteworthy. The Rusty Solomon linkedin site is a great page to look at, both as an example of how to set up a Linkedin page and a good reference for consulting work.

In addition to using an example, remember that keywords are your best friend. Prior to filling out your page, think about what keywords are important to you and your business. Continue reading

California-based Pala tribe becomes first to launch Internet gambling site in New Jersey | Star Tribune

“User experience should be important for every type of business,” he says. “Facebook’s ‘Say Thanks’ video works because it’s relevant and timely with Thanksgiving approaching this week. However, it also shows how involved Facebook is with its users. Facebook knows what they like, and how to provide them with new ways to use the platform. This is a classic example of how big businesses succeed in creating products or services with the users and customers in mind.” Darrohn advises more businesses to focus on user experience.

Deliver Media Launches New Website Showcasing New Digital Marketing Services

PalaCasino.com started taking bets Saturday morning, said Jim Ryan, CEO of Pala Interactive, the tribe’s Internet gambling arm. “We had a solid weekend and we have yet to start marketing,” he told The Associated Press Monday. “We believe we are breaking into the New Jersey market at the perfect time.” The tribe’s entry into New Jersey’s online market comes at the anniversary of Internet gambling, which has not produced nearly the amount of revenue state officials had hoped. When it began on Nov. 25, 2013, New Jersey officials were projecting a $1 billion a year industry in its first year; to date, only about a tenth of that, or $111 million, has been won online by the casinos. The tribe, which runs the Pala Casino and Spa in San Diego County, California, is using one of the Borgata’s online gambling licenses. Like other New Jersey Internet gambling providers, it can only take bets from customers within New Jersey’s borders. It plans to launch an online poker site in the first quarter of 2015.

The show was slated to release a day after Thanksgiving. Cosbys publicist stated that he agreed with the decision. Also, the declaration by Nielsen to track viewership details of companies like Netflix and Amazon.com in the near future could be held responsible for the share price decline. To date, Netflix had kept all details pertaining to its viewership details concealed from public. Hence, Nielsens proposal did not go down well with its shareholders as was proven by the decline in share prices. Going ahead, we believe the full six episodes of the 30-minute show I’m Sorry You Feel That Way by American stand-up comedian Bill Burr scheduled to be aired on Netflix in 2015 would be a major positive for the company. Netflix has already aired a host of comedy shows this year such as Jim Jefferiess Bare, Chelsea Handlers comedy show Uganda Be Kidding Me Live and Chelsea Perettis One of the Greats. Further, another major event to look out for is Netflixs debut in Australia and New Zealand.

JM Internet Group - Social Media Training

has sprung up to apply the lessons of Big Data to television. As the rise of digital and mobile advertising threatens to yank ad dollars from the big cable companies and broadcasters, networks and marketers hope the new technologies will have the ability to leverage huge databases on what products consumers buy and which obscure shows they watch, making the television ad landscape more like the online one. If you can do this now with television, you prevent people from moving to what they consider to be a more measurable approach, said David Poltrack, chief research officer for broadcaster CBS Corp. Choice Hotels uses Simulmedia, an advertising-measurement company that collects set-top box data for 50 million Americans to help companies target consumers watching long-tail cable inventory, that is, shows that are generally cheaper than prime-time hits but carry niche viewers. Good Morning America, for example, sells 30-second spots for about $43,000, compared with $650 for an ad on Animal Planet during the early morning, when Big Cat Diary airs, according to media cost forecasting firm SQAD. Choice Hotels spends 5% to 10% of its TV ad dollars buying these kinds of data-targeted audiences, according to Robert McDowell, senior vice president of marketing and distribution. The reason? A show like Good Morning America offers a mass audience, but targeted buys like Big Cat Diary add some precision.

Cleveland preps for fastest Internet available – Yahoo News

An announcement about the project is scheduled for Friday in Cleveland. Officials hope the availability of exponentially faster Internet service will be a catalyst for attracting startups and existing technology companies to the city’s burgeoning Health-Tech Corridor. One hundred gigabits per second is more than 300 times faster than the average download speed of residential Internet service in the U.S. The increased speed should allow health care providers and technology companies to move high-definition image files much faster than currently available speeds allow. Those involved in the project acknowledge there’s currently not much demand in Cleveland for speeds of 100 gigabits. But they say that the evolution of technology should soon make it relevant and that the network provides a strong selling point when courting companies to locate to Cleveland. The nonprofit OneCommunity worked with the city to obtain a $714,000 grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to help pay for the $1 million project. “We’re building a network for the art of the possible,” said OneCommunity CEO Lev Gonick said. Plans call for completion of the 3-mile Internet “pipeline” between Case Western Reserve University and ideastream, Cleveland’s public radio and television organization, by next summer. Sue Workman, Case Western’s vice president of information technology services, said upgrading to a 100 gigabit network will allow for greater use of high-performance learning applications and will help feed the school’s ever-growing need for bandwidth.

The common denominator is that they have brought some element of value-add to the standard plain vanilla text message. For example, companies are using texts to serve as a substitute for automated customer service notifications — specifically, for secure customer service notifications. “We see companies using our system to respond to questions such as payment account status — information that is security-sensitive,” Fujita Yuhas told CRM Buyer. “We have had companies come to us asking for help in using SMS to answer these questions, but protected with two-factor authentication.” Many Different Uses SMS messaging also is playing a role in the emerging Internet of Things story.

Autobytel to Present and Conduct One-on-One Investor Meetings at LD Micro Conference – Yahoo Finance

Human Rights Watch said in a report that such tests were a longstanding practice in Indonesia, where patriarchal attitudes and practices in the security forces are common. LONDON (AP) The United Nations Population Fund said Tuesday that changing demographics, mainly in Africa and Asia, could lead to rapid economic growth if there is sufficient investment in young people. The agency said a “demographic dividend” can happen when a country’s working age population is larger than its elderly and young populations who are dependent. BANGKOK (AP) Thai police issued arrest warrants Tuesday for two Americans who attempted to mail a preserved baby’s head, foot and other human body parts to the United States, saying the objects were stolen from a Thai medical museum. The bizarre case has quickly gained international attention, with Thai police asking Cambodian authorities to help locate the men, who traveled to the neighboring country on Sunday, and the FBI helping with the investigation in the United States.

How The Big Guys Are Teaming Up With Startups

Performance Based Digital Marketing Sector Generates Strong Financial Gains with Researchers… — CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, November 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

PR Newswire

If this is being accomplished in one of the most heavily regulated industries, consider the benefits large companies could reap from partnering with smaller startups as they look for new ways of developing new ideas and bringing them quickly to the market. Read More Innovate or die? The rise of intrapreneurship Startup entrepreneurs often lack the resources to scale their latest great idea and achieve global reach. But pair them with large companies and these organizations, which have been at the backbone of the global economy, become bridgemakers, delivering and accelerating smaller entrepreneurs’ access to global markets. The collaboration can help entrepreneurs gain access to foreign investment, local distribution networks in far reaches of the world and create a halo-effect of overall credibility. In return, the large companies reap the benefit of greater access to new technologies and highly skilled talent, reduced R&D costs, and the promise of innovations that will deliver new revenue streams. One example of such collaboration was when the U.S. behemoth GE teamed up with Quirky, a well-funded start-up for crowdsourced inventions, to create a platform named Wink.

Smartphones Team-up With Qr Codes For Secure 3-d Displays — Sciencedaily

Doritos-Flavored Mountain Dew: the Genius of PepsiCo’s Gross-Out Marketing – Businessweek

“In our proposed method,” Javidi said, “we store self-contained slices of data in the QR codes themselves. It’s then possible to receive and visualize 3-D images without using the Internet.” The process of storing and encoding the images is done by first selecting the primary image to be visualized. This could be either a single 3-D object, like a car or household object, or an entire 3-D scene. The 3-D image is then broken down by taking multiple 2-D images of it from multiple perspectives — each 2-D image is known as a single “elemental image.” Each elemental image is taken from one portion of a precisely oriented array of tiny lenses called ‘lenslets’. The lenslet array, which resembles the multifaceted surface of a fly’s eye, captures the scene from many slightly offset perspectives in a process known as “integral imaging.” Each elemental image is then split into two essential parts: the angular information (the unique perspective of the 3-D scene) and the corresponding intensity information, which establishes the shades of gray in each pixel. If this information were simply recorded digitally, the process could easily be reversed by back-projecting all the elemental images through identically arranged lenslets and then overlapping and superimposing them to form a 3-D image. Encryption for Secure Image Display In this case, however, each elemental image goes through a program that compresses, encrypts, and stores that information as a QR code. A smartphone with any commercial QR reader can then retrieve that data by sequentially scanning multiple codes. A separate decryption app with a unique security key would be needed to decompress and reconstruct the image and only a smartphone with the correct key would be able to access the data. For the purpose of this research, the data was exported to an external computer where a specialized program decompressed and decrypted the image. Once all of the QR codes are converted back to the elemental images, the 3-D image is reconstructed and displayed by placing a lenslet array on top of the smartphone screen.

Let’s break the Internet with inspiration | PostIndependent.com

The cappuccino chips may have tasted like they fell into a K-Cup , but the bizarre flavor generated more than 25,000 mentions on outlets such as Facebook ( FB ) and Twitter ( TWTR ), according to Infegy, a company that analyzes social media. Competing flavor wasabi ginger generated far less chatter until it was announced as the competition winner last month, suggesting that something disgusting captures the imagination in a way that something merely weird or novel does not. Courtesy Infegy This is the point of over-the-top food, be it weird soda flavors or waffles stuffed with bacon and cheddar , as at IHOP ( DIN ). These promotions are tailor-made for online virality, which the chains hope will entice more customers to gorge themselves, my colleague Claire Suddath wrote . Pepsis genius is that, unlike IHOP or Yum! Brands ( YUM ) Taco Bell (Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos) and Pizza Hut (cheeseburger-crust pizza), it doesnt need to sell its novelty flavors to make a point. Rather, it managed to generate all of its Dewitos buzz with a giveaway. The Doritos flavor was being tested at colleges and universities with a few other new versions of Mountain Dew: habanero mango, rainbow sherbet, and lemonade with ginger. Yet only the soda flavored like liquid tortilla chips provoked such a quick, strong reactionand some curiosity: Doritos flavored Mountain Dew.

If I were a mother and raising a girl in todays society, I would teach her to grow as I did in my early years curious, inquisitive, knowledge-hungry and creative. It wasnt until my middle school years that body image started to overshadow my innocence and affect my self-esteem. I was what they call a late bloomer. I joke that I looked like a 10-year-old boy when I hit the teenage years while the other girls in class were starting to become women. Joking around has always been my best coping method. I loved being in high school, with all the opportunities to participate in clubs and sports, but I still felt insecure. Im still kicking myself for not going from 8th grade drama club into the thespians in high school. I missed out on the chance to express myself on stage, an opportunity adulthood has provided, mostly because being popular was always on my mind. Im not exactly proud of that pursuit. Sure, I had boyfriends and went to all the dances, but there was a still a sense that I was not rich or pretty enough.

What also works for us is having discussions with Autobytel, figuring out what we are closing and at what radiuses away from the dealership, and adjusting our lead volume.
