Mom and Dad's Move

Mom and Dad's Move
The article written by Alonso Kramer

My parents recently decided to buy a winter house in Florida since they hate how cold it gets in Jersey at that time of year. I can’t say I really blame them since I live in New York and I know how awful it gets but I’m just worried about leaving their big house here vacant for so long each year. I live over an hour and a half away so it’s not like I can go check on it all the time or anything. I convinced my dad to look with me and talked to him about how an alarm would help monitor the place and he seems to think it’s a good idea. He’s also going to pay one of the neighborhood kids each week to come by and cut the grass and water the plants so that it looks good for the rest of the neighbors and for them when they come back. I’m glad they’re happy and now I have a great place to stay in Florida!

What Is Social Media Marketing?

What Is Social Media Marketing?



If you fall into any one of the following categories, like:

  • the ones who don\'t know much or anything about social media,
  • the ones who are interested but don\'t know how to use it and
  • those who don\'t believe in the value that a social media strategy can bring to any site or business

you must read this article to know how big a deal is social media and the enormous benefits of social media marketing.

Social media is information content created by people using highly accessible and scalable publishing technologies that is intended to facilitate communications, influence and interaction with peers and with public audiences. This is typically done via the Internet and mobile communications networks. Today this practice is being enjoyed by executives and professionals for brand exposure and marketing.

Do you make these mistakes to market your brand or services?

  • Use Yellow page ads that cost thousands of dollars, yet bring in little new business?
  • Spend money on direct mailers that also have limited results.
  • How about money spent on print advertising. How effective is it?
  • Are you spending lots of money optimizing your website but still have little traffic.
  • Spend money on Pay Per Click Advertising Campaigns, with limited results.

Can you improve your business if you know:

  • What is being said about you.
  • What your customers think about your product or service.
  • What your customers really want.
  • What your competitors are doing.
  • How to stay up to date with the latest trends and developments.
  • How to make your business more profitable.

Nothing provides a better return on investment than having a network of people raving about you and it doesn\'t matter what product or service you sell. So let\'s have a look onto the benefits of social media viral marketing.

The value of Marketing through Social Media Channels

Social media marketing is the process of promoting your site or business through social media channels and it is a powerful strategy that will get you links, attention and massive amounts of traffic.Social media marketing is an engagement with online communities to generate exposure, opportunity and sales. The number-one advantage is generating exposure for the business, followed by increasing traffic and building new business partnerships. It is a powerful strategy that will get you links, attention and massive amounts of traffic.

What are the benefits?

It\'s natural. No doubt you get natural links, your website is exposed to a large number of people. This differs from paid advertising which has overt commercial overtones.

It\'s defensible. Social communities can be a great source of web traffic on top of any traffic you are already receiving from search engines. While you can\'t easily increase your search engine traffic, social media traffic can be very easily controlled through strategic marketing.

It\'s low-cost/high returns. Costs are limited to only time and perhaps the expenses involved in hiring a freelance programmer/designer. The benefits will often exceed the cost. It would take you thousands of dollars to buy many links; social media has the ability to give you that for free.

It complements other efforts. Social media optimization and marketing is usually community-specific. It doesn\'t interfere with any other methods of getting traffic to your website. It can and will fit perfectly with an advertising campaign targeting other websites or search engines.

There is no other low-cost promotional method out there that will easily give you large numbers of visitors, some of whom may come back to your website again and again. If you are selling products/services or just publishing content for ad revenue, social media marketing is a potent method that will make your site profitable over time.

Digital tax could save the music industry from itself

Digital tax could save the music industry from itself

    In the last few years, the music industry has combated tumbling revenue by suing costumers, decimating artist rosters and laying off thousands of employees.

    That's not a business plan. That's the sound of the Titanic slipping under the waves.

       But in the last few days, one important segment of the music industry actually came up with a rescue strategy that didn't smack of panic, malice or desperation.

       The Songwriters Association of Canada is proposing a $5-a-month licensing fee on every wireless and Internet account in the country, in exchange for unlimited access to all recorded music.
