How to Squeeze the Value Out of Your Advertising Dollars
Despite the obvious benefits, when it comes to getting the word out about their service or product many business owners do not know where to start. On top of this is the preconception that advertising means the investment of big bucks, something that a lot of small and start-up businesses simply do not have.
Contrary to popular belief, advertising does not have to be stupendously expensive. If you do your homework you can eliminate unnecessary advertising efforts and costs. This includes having a clear idea of who your customers are and how to communicate with them, as well as being familiar with your competitive environment.
The Benefits of Working with a Professional
Getting a good advertising agency on board can be a smart business move. Agencies can assist with anything from providing a strong advertising strategy to advising on where, when and how often you should be running your advertisements. Delegating these tasks to the experts leaves you free to focus on what you know best -- running your business.
Things You Can Try out on Your Own
Employing the services of a professional can save a lot of time and money in the long run, but bear in mind that if a new company’s preliminary marketing budget is very limited it is not beyond the realms of possibility to go it alone and conduct an advertising campaign without the guidance of an agency.
A good place to start is with one of the biggest advertising tools you have: your company website. Try a few things yourself, see what works and get plenty of feedback from your clients and friends.
Even if you don't have a website yet, the Internet can still provide some great and inexpensive ways of marketing your business. For example, free business directories, such as global directory The Business List and the UK based Scoot, allow you to promote your company for free and will get your product or service in front of hundreds of potential customers.
As with anything, there are a whole range of traps that business owners new to advertising can fall into.
The biggest mistake a company can make is not listening to the consumers and not getting the customer experience right. If you rush into advertising before either your product or your customer service plan is ready then you risk damaging the delicate relationship between you and your customers.
Advertising as Part of the Marketing Mix
Advertising should not be the only tool you use to promote your business. On occasion, direct marketing, an email strategy or even a public relations campaign might be much more effective and a good advertising professional won’t shy away from telling you this. However, it is an integral part of the marketing mix and can be highly beneficial for any size of company, as long as the product and the customer experience are ready for the exposure. If you approach your advertising with an open mind alongside a strong idea of what you want advertising to achieve for your company then you will be that one step closer to joining Kellogg’s, Coca-Cola and Nike in the Business Halls of Fame.
Pros and cons of consolidating U.S. government loans
If you're a U.S. college student who is approaching graduation day or a recent college graduate, no doubt you've been contacted by student loan consolidation services. As you wade through all this information, it can be hard to get a straight answer to a simple question: is federal loan consolidation right for you?
First of, what is student loan consolidation? This simply means that if you took out more than one U.S. government loan during your time as a college student, you can combine all of them into one.
If you also owe private student loans that weren't part of your financial aid package, you can consolidate these as well. However, lenders recommend that you don't consolidate federal student loans and private student loans together. If you do this, the new consolidated loan will count as a private loan, and you will lose all the benefits that come with your federal student loans, such as student loan deferment if you go to graduate school.
So what are the advantages and disadvantages of consolidating your federal student loans? This questions depends partly on how much you owe, how much you've already paid, and other personal financial variables. In a nutshell, here's the pros and cons:
ADVANTAGES TO GOVERNMENT STUDENT LOAN CONSOLIDATION
- By consolidating your loans, you will likely have a lower monthly payment. The federal interest rate is likely to be lower than the combined interest of your original loans. When you consolidate, you also have the opportunity to pay the loans back over an extended period of time, which will result in lower monthly payments.
- Borrowers can choose from four different payment plans, including an extended payment plan that can extend up to 30 years, depending on the amount that is owed.
- If you consolidate your loans, you only have to make one convenient monthly payment.
- There's no fee for consolidating your government student loans.
- There's no credit check when you consolidate your government student loans.
- There's no penalty for paying the loan off early.
- The loan application process is much simpler than it is for other kinds of loans.
DISADVANTAGES TO GOVERNMENT STUDENT LOAN CONSOLIDATION
- If you take an extended payment plan, you will you pay more interest in the long run. If your loan is large, this could cost you thousands of dollars and have a negative impact on your financial future.
- It's possible that the consolidated student loan rate will be higher than the interest rates on your other loans. If this is the case, consolidation is not to your advantage.
- If you consolidate your loans during the six month grace period after graduation, you lose the remainder of the grace period.
- If you've already paid off a large chunk of your student loans, consolidation may not be worth the money or effort.
- Borrowers with a Perkins loan forfeit the special benefits that come with this kind of loan if they consolidate.
Because the business has become extremely complex, most industry professionals would probably recommend that a small firm or organization employ a media buying specialist to purchase its ad time and space.
As Jay Levinson writes in Guerrilla Advertising (Houghton Mifflin 1994), the growing number of advertising media options has increased the risk of making costly buying mistakes. The number of functions involved in the media buying process illustrates its complexity.
Ad Buying Functions
The functions include:
- Analysis and strategies
- Actual placement of the ads
- Confirmation of run
Another indication of the complexity: One Internet firm offers a four-day "boot camp" or an eight-subject video series on media buying for just under $3,400.
Tips for Buying Ad Time and Space
For those who insist or feel forced to do in-house advertising, here are some tips for handling the media buying functions:
- Be aware that media buying is an extremely detailed process requiring patience, communication skills, an analytic mind and an ability to crunch numbers.
- Start by carefully defining target audiences, the prospects that the advertising is intended to reach.
- Consider alternative media. The options today extend far beyond newspapers, magazines, radio, television and billboards. Cable TV, the Internet, bench and bus ads, newsletters, circulars, telephone directories and direct mail are just some of the other outlets that can effectively deliver specialized messages to targeted audiences.
- Don’t accept media statistics at face value. Take them back to the office and analyze them. Get comparative figures from the media’s competition.
- Buy the smallest circulation and the smallest audience that will cover the organization’s prospects. The object is to reach prospects, not large numbers of people.
- Cable TV, radio and magazines can target audiences better than general circulation newspapers and television.
- The size of the ad or the length of the commercial should be based on the space or time needed to effectively deliver the ad message. However, cost restrictions often require heavy editing of the message to fit the available space or time.
- When buying print advertising, request a right-hand page.
- Continuity should be a major goal in media buying.
- Media representatives can provide estimates on how often a prospect must be exposed to an ad.
- Always ask about the availability of special rates, volume discounts and value-added packages. Negotiation is ever-present in media buying. Media buying firms boast of their ability to negotiate rates.
- Set aside some media money for special situations such as special media editions and promotions that will probably pop up during the year.
- Do not buy school and other civic-related ads with the advertising budget. Most of them would not meet an advertising or marketing goal, so allocate them to the public relations or community service budget.
- As Levinson says, media buying decisions should be based on cost-per-prospect instead of the media’s standard cost-per-thousand.
- Check media associations for special rates and packages. Some offer discount rates in multiple publications and stations.
- Schedule early for holiday seasons to get the best placement options.
- Check all media invoices and demand proof that the ads were run as scheduled. Sometimes they don’t.
Use Caution in Selecting an Ad Buyer
When all this gets too complex and time consuming, reconsider the use of a media buying service. Phone books and the Internet are full of them. Selecting one is not quite as complex as media buying, but requires just as much caution.

So, we hope our website will be hopped by other people, that mean free traffic to our website.
How make our website hopped by other people? The method is with using the beer Credit (yeah... proggramer and the founder of sitehoppin was the drankard. They said, will work better after drink the beer). To bring in one visitor to our site, we need 10 beerCredits.

First, join entrecard. Then, you make banner and you can upload that into entrecard. How if you cannot make a banner? well, you can make text and choose the color up to you. The example of banner entrecard that make just from text you can see at the bottom of this blog. Okay, after you publish your banner, it will be looked by other people that find inspiration, information, or just surfing inside entrecard. Entrecard has many visitor, so it will benefit us. To get more information about entrecard, you can visit http://entrecard.com.
Well... There is some tips to all of you.
Many people use entrecard. They may find inspiration, information, or just surfing. Most of them try to save up their points and buy advertising on a big or well known website. The problem is you only get your ad on one site for one day. So, you may take a very long time to gain enough points to do that. Really I don't think the drop to point rate is worth it for sites that charge 512ec points to advertise. Instead I have just started to search for sites that are brand new. Sites that cost 2-8ec. That way you get your advertisement up on a site for next to nothing. Now the site no longer have a ton of traffic, but the advertising is so cheap and it is worth it. You also never know what the new site may have a large fan base, they just may be new to entrecard. If you calculate it, instead of using 512 points for one day of advertising on one site. Instead you can use that many points to advertise on hundreds or thousands of sites now. So try it out. It has mean this is helped me to gain many more visitors, and also viewers. That's all.

Below are some guidelines which should help you to find the best forex trading education course
Point 1 - Avoid Day Trading Systems
Many people when starting out in Forex trading will be enticed into thinking that the best way of making money is through day trading. Certainly if you were to ask a person who is selling a Forex trading course for details relating to their real time track record with regard to profits relating to day trading they will not be able to provide one to you.
So if you are looking to produce an income from your trading then do not waste your time on day trading.
Point 2 - Real Time Profit Records
When buying any sort of forex education course, you need to be provided with these records. If a person selling their system does not have confidence in the abilities of their system and are not investing their own monies then why should you. Unfortunately some of these courses being offered online today are from people who have either never traded in their lives or have failed when they have used the system themselves.
Point 3 - Understand It
Once you find a forex trading system which either has a track record or is willing to show their real profits then there are some other things which you will need to take into consideration.
It is important that you learn everything you can about the system in question so that you understand it completely. Unfortunately if you have no understanding of how the system works then you will not have the confidence to trust in it and follow the system through to a likely conclusion if you start to suffer losses.
By keeping these points in mind, you will find the best Forex trading education that is suited to your kind of personality. There are literally hundreds of places on the web that can offer you an education as well as free advice on Forex trading so do some investigating and you will soon find one that is ideal for you.

Before you get the wrong idea, let me clear the air about how I make money from the web. HappyJoblessGuy is NOT about earning money from some online pyramid schemes. It is not about Multi-Level Marketing (even though I have no issue about people earning through MLM). It is not about online forex trading. I am going to show you an honest way of generating income from the web but it's going to involve a degree of hard work from you. For sure, nothing comes easy, and that includes building a machine that makes money online.
Do not have your website hosted by PBase, Tripod, Blogger, even though it can be done an hour. If you intend to earn serious, long-time income, that is not the way to do it. You want something that is 100% your own. Once you have your own website (not an account with Blogger, PBase, etc.), you will realise the amount of freedom in your hands.
If you were to ask me, what are the tools you need to build a great website, I can count them with the fingers of one hand. You can hire a web programmer to build a whole website for you, bypassing the need to be acquainted with any tool. But to own a really great website, I would urge you to do it yourself. You can't be the captain of your own ship if you can't tell stern from starboard. I have received emails from people asking to give them personal coaching. I am sorry, but I do not have time to do that, even if you're willing to pay me money.
In the next five pages of this chapter, I will go through each essential tool one by one. At the end of this chapter I will recap what we have learned. You will realise, if you haven't yet, that earning a living without holding a job requires you to learn skills that you may not have learned before. On the other hand, you may have built many websites, and are wondering what's new that I want to share. Once again, I urge you to be patient as the topics are developed.
Now, without further ado, let’s look at the 5 Essential Tools:
The first tool you need to build a great website is a HTML Editor.
A HTML Editor is a software application to write web pages. There are several brands in the market, including Microsoft Frontpage, Adobe Dreamweaver and so on. Personally I would encourage you not to use Microsoft Frontpage, as it tends to add proprietary codes to your pages, making it difficult to be edited with a different HTML Editor. The one I use is called Homesite, also from Adobe. I learned to write webpages with Homesite.
With a HTML Editor, you write the content of your pages by keying in the HTML Codes, and then checking it with the Preview function. If you do not have a HTML Editor presently installed in your computer, I strongly suggest you get one immediately and start fiddling with it. Get used to all the functions. Learn what to click to make the text bold, italics, underlined, etc., how to hyperlink, how to insert picture, and so on. A good HTML Editor does a lot of work for you, so that you can concentrate on putting together a great website. It doesn't matter which one you use, as long as you get familiar with it.
The second Essential Tool you need is knowledge of HTML Codes.
As mentioned in the previous page, you need to learn coding. To be exact, HTML Codes. HTML Codes are instructions you tell the Internet how you want to format your webpages. The basic HTML codes you need to know are:
• Headers (H1, H2, H3, etc.)
In addition to the above, it would do you good to learn how to format size and colour of your font, background, border. More advanced features such as CSS would be helpful too, but are still all together very easy, that even a dummy could learn it (so if you have to, find a book for dummies and learn all about it).
The third Essential Tool is a Domain Name.
The domain name, also called the hostname or sitename, is the basic name of your website. For example, www.happyjoblessguy.com. As you probably have known, the domain name has an ending such as .com, .net, .org, etc. To use it to earn an income, I would suggest you go for .com. It is the most popular, hence, the most difficult to get. Nonetheless, you should try to get domain names with .com.
You probably will not get the first domain name of your choice, and will need to try a few times before landing on one that is still available. This is a very important exercise, so take all the time you need.
Registering and keeping a domain name will cost you approximately US$10 per year or even lower. That is peanuts if you can earn the amount back. For now, look for the domain name but don't register it yet. Instead go to Essential Tool #4 to read about Web hosting.
The fourth Essential Tool is Web hosting.
To get web hosting means you rent space on a server that will host your website. You do not need to purchase a server - you don't even need to know how a server works. All you need to know is that you need to host your website on it. The Webhost provides you the space and the interface for you to manage your website.
Think of web hosting as a safe deposit box, and the domain name as the safe deposit box number. When you register for web hosting, you are buying space in a safe deposit box. The amount you pay should determine the amount of space you need. For that reason, the web hosting fee is directly related to the amount of space you purchase. The safe deposit box number remains the same, regardless the amount of space you use. In a similar sense, the fee for domain name is fixed regardless the amount of content you have on the web.
When you start your website, the amount of space you need will most likely be pretty low, less than 1GB, so do not pay for a lot of space that you are not going to use. You can always buy more space as your needs grow. If you pay for 5GB per year, and throughout the course of that year, you never use more than 1GB, then the balance 4GB is money wasted.
The fifth and final Essential Tool you need to build a great website is an FTP Software.
An FTP Software is an application that enables you to transfer data from your computer to your website on the Internet, and vice versa. There are many other ways to do it, including using an online interface provided by your webhost, but usually, using an FTP Software is the swiftest way.
The FTP Software allows you to upload new pages to your website as well as update existing pages. The FTP Software that I use is called WS FTP, which stands for WinSock File Transfer Protocol. To download it, google "Free FTP Download" to see what comes up.
In the next chapter, we will look at Building a Profit-Making Website. As of now, I want you to be familiar with the five Essential Tools in this chapter. Please go ahead and register your web hosting and obtain your domain name, but once again, let me urge you to give the domain name a good thinking through before decided which. If you choose a wrong one at the beginning stage, fine, it only costs another US$10 or so to register another. But you need to make sure it is a domain name you want to own for years and years to come. Who knows, one day you may even sell that domain and the whole web business for $1 million? So, choose carefully.

Forex made easy is as simple as you would want it to be. The foreign exchange market is a worldwide market and according to some estimates is almost as big as thirty times the turnover of the US Equity markets. That is some figure to chew on. Forex is the commonly used term for foreign exchange. As a person who wants to invest in the forex market, one should understand the basics of how this currency market operates. Forex can be made easier for beginners to understand it and here's how.
Foreign exchange is the buying and the selling of foreign exchange in pairs of currencies. For example you buy US dollars and sell UK Sterling pounds or you sell German Marks and buy Japanese Yen. Why are currencies bought or sold? The answer is simple; Governments and Companies need foreign exchange for their purchase and payments for various commodities and services. This trade constitutes about 5% of all currency transactions, however the other 95% currency transactions are done for speculation and trade. In fact many companies will buy foreign currency when it is being traded at a lower rate to protect their financial investments. Another thing about foreign exchange market is that the rates are varying continuously and on daily basis. Therefore investors and financial managers track the forex rates and the forex market it on a daily basis.
Those who are involved in the forex trade know that almost 85% of the trading is done in only US Dollar, Japanese Yen, Euro, British Pound, Swiss Franc, Canadian Dollar and Australian Dollar. This is because they are the most liquid of foreign currencies (can be easily bought and sold. In fact the US Dollar is most recognizable foreign currency even in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam etc).
Being a truly 24/7 market, the currency trading markets opens in the financial centers of Sydney, Tokyo, London and New York in that sequence. Investors and speculators alike respond to the ever-changing situations and can buy and sell simultaneously the currencies. In fact many operate in two or more currency market using arbitrage to gain profits (buying in one market and selling in another market or vice versa to take advantage of the prices and book profits).
While dealing in forex, one should have a margin account. Quite simply put if you have US$ 1,000 and have a forex margin account which leverages 100:1 then you can buy US$ 100,000 since you only need 1% of the US$100,000 or US$1,000. Therefore it means that with margin account you have US$ 100,000 worth of real purchasing power in your hand.
Since the foreign currency market is fluctuating on a continuous basis, one should be able to understand the factors that affect this currency market. This is done through Technical Analysis and Fundamental Analysis. These two tools of trade are used in a variety of other markets such as equity markets, stock markets, mutual funds markets etc. Technical Analysis refers to reading, summarizing and analyzing data based on the data that is generated by the market. While fundamental Analysis refers to the factors, which influence the market economy, and in turn how it would affect the currency trading. Of course there are other economic and non economic factors which can suddenly affect the trading of the forex markets such as the 9/11 tragedy etc. One needs to have a shrewd acumen and a few number crunching abilities to strike gold in the forex market.

Business owners understand how important an advertisement is. It is in this manner that they would tell to everybody that they are selling products and offering services. They would not have sales, which in turn give them profit, if people would not notice and buy their products and avail of their services.
However, it is not happy to note that there are people who would try to steal money from advertisers and business owners by offering cheap advertisement packages and not delivering the agreed service. Business owners and advertisers should be informed of this because they would become victims of a scam.
The scam here is when the advertiser paid for these different kinds of services but none or some of them are not really even performed. The main point to consider here is to whom is the advertiser transacting with. To avoid being ripped off doing a background check by knowing the following will help.
-past successful projects as evident on customers comments
-a good reputation that will be confirmed by his references, (people that he's had past transaction with and that are also reputable)
The pay-per-click ad campaign is when an advertiser would pay a certain agreed amount by the search engine developers every time a user clicks on that banner. This was a good idea before it was not touched by hackers who developed a certain program to automatically click on that banner which increases the amount to be paid by the advertiser. The next paying scheme was the “pay per action”, which is harder to hack since the advertiser would only pay the search engine developers an agreed amount every time a sale would be done on that customer.

Fly ads are derivatives of pop-ups which are also equally irking to the visitors.

2. Pod casts.
Broadcast is to TV as pod cast is to internet. It's one sophisticated internet advertising method that can somehow hamper your budget. But if you're thinking results, pod casting is worth the money.
3. Paying the search engines.
How does this one work? When someone types in a keyword related to your site, your URL is automatically included in the first page of the top results. Fixed payment for the search engine allows just that. Expensive, yes, but if we're talking about Google and Yahoo search engines here, then don't give it a second thought.
This is associated with another internet advertising method: the pay-per-click system.
Go along the bandwagon and blog about your website. This is an internet advertising method that is popular as of the moment, so you never have to worry that this will never spur outcome. All you have to do is sign up for a blogging account, post and voila! You don't even need to pay!
2. Submit to not-so-big search engines.
This is cheap and dependable. If you submit your site to smaller search engines, you have bigger chances to get bigger results. Remember that the search engine giants can dwarf and overlook your site easily, so this internet advertising method might just be the right one for you.
3. Text links.
This is not just cheap...this is virtually free! Let someone text link your site and return the favor.
Cheap versus expensive, that's always the question that hounds on whenever we're trying to get something. In the field of internet advertising, just be wise enough to figure out what will suit your needs. Go for what you want as long as there are visible results.
