How to Spot a Scam

If the offer sounds too good to be true, then it most likely is not as it seems. A few key indicators are obvious signs of a scam. The terms of the proposed agreement are lopsided; in favor the party presenting the offer. The agreement contains ambiguities and open-ended statements that can interpreted in numerous ways. The party initiating the offer is eager to begin the process.

To uncover an unscrupulous job offer, be wary of extended payment dates. If remuneration is monthly or based on unclear duties, then the work done might not be compensated. Also, look for reviews on the employer (by full name) and reviews on the company online. See what is being said about the company by customers and former employees. If customers are writing posts that indicate that they were not provided with the service for which they paid, then it is likely that the company is also not fair with paying their employees.

To discover an unreliable business proposal or company that does not fulfill its commitments, ask for references. If the company does not have any, then this is a clear signal that they do not have customers who can recommend their services. Also, consult with other businesses in the same industry and find out what they have to say about the specific organization. Competitors are a great reference. Even though they are in competition, they will likely not make inflammatory statements, which cannot be substantiated. Also, if a competitor offers an endorsement, then it is likely that it can be relied upon. For impartial reviews of businesses, consult your local business bureau. Their reviews can be found online and are usually accompanied by a letter grade from A+ through to F.

When communicating with a potential colleague, to be sure that they are sincere, ask for all specifics to be written. This way all points can be referred to during negotiations. If a potential business partner is ambiguous about the work to be completed, compensation, timelines, deliverables and varies the requirements of the projects details, then perhaps, they are not a good commercial associate. Sometimes inconsistency in communications is a polite indication that one party does not wish to communicate.

If a deal seems to good to be true, then it probably is not legitimate. Request all details of a deal in writing. Take time to thoroughly review any proposal before committing your money or services to anyone.

How To Create A Great Online Presence for Maximum Visitors

After you have built your website or blog – customizing it with social media capability and so forth – you need to make it visitor worthy. You might believe that your website or blog is interesting and that is reason enough for visitors to initially land on your page. But you need to be distinguishable from every other similar and unrelated website or blog. You need to be the diamond of websites / blogs.

To reach this pinnacle, or jewel-like status on the internet, you need to have a colorful and welcoming website. Not too much text, at least on the main page. That is, unless of course your website is meant for the purpose of broadcasting events, or promotions. If you have too much text, then your readers will be overwhelmed with a plethora of information. Conversely if you do not have enough writing on your website, then your followers will have no reason to return to website or blog.

Perhaps that clear distinction between a website and a blog is an important place to start the discussion on how to develop and maintain your online presence. While a blog contains a biography of the blogger and regular posts on a specific topic(s), a website has a distinctive marketing structure. A website might also contain blog posts. But posts are not the main focus of the website.

Blogs and websites alike have subscribers who are interested on receiving regular written posts from the web portal.  To maintain or increase the readership of your posts, you will need to write interesting articles on a variety of topics. Most importantly, your writing should be consistent. You can compose new posts daily, or weekly. But be consistent.

Readers will want to establish a routine of reading your posts. To ensure readers want to read what you have written, keep your sentences short and your thoughts concise. Consider popular trends and emerging topics when composing your topics. It is best to write about a theme that is in the media, online or otherwise. Or for a blog, you might choose to often write an evolving series of poems or short stories. Whatever you write should be clear and to the point. Usually website / blog readers peruse a post and might just scan the page for key words that they find to be appealing.


How to Sell Like A Champion

To sell a product or service one will likely need to believe in its inherent value. One will need to appreciate the potential marketability of the item and want others to able to benefit from it. Is this correct or it is just a sales pitch?

Perhaps a good sales pitch must be correctly made to the right audience. So let us begin with this as a first premise. To market a product one must advertise it and promote to an interested demographic. What if no one is interested in what is being endorsed? Then, as a good salesperson you have much work to accomplish in creating buzz. That’s right, you need to generate curiosity in whatever it is that you want to publicize.

First you might want to develop a model for your campaign. This is your method or process of presenting the product or service to specific potential consumers that would appreciate knowing about it. Should you sample or utilize a current campaign that has wowed you? Certainly not. You need to create your own model for successful advertising. But if you can’t learn from the marketing prowess of one who is doing it right, then how will you advance. Read up on many marketing strategies, on the internet, in books, sales literature / magazines and other media outlets. Take scrupulous notes as to what styles of endorsement appeal to you.

Perhaps you might want to try to develop: an interesting jingle, tagline, key phrase, question, intriguing statement other mode of generating buzz. That’s it, buzz! Showcase your product or service as being the sweetest honey ever and the bees will find you. If I must say so myself, that is good line. Do you believe it? It is a necessary requirement that you believe in your promotional statements. If you don’t, then you cannot expect anyone else to either.

Now that you know how to effectively run your great campaign of exceedingly potent magnitude, all that remains is to choose the right mode for exposure. Are you a competent writer? If so then you might want to choose to write your sales pitch and have ads in-print or online. If you are a proficient speaker then you might want to create a radio advertisement. If you are not adept in these modalities, then you could hire a competent copywriter or vocal specialist to develop your ad for you. All you need to do is to imbue your enthusiasm for the campaign into your assistant. Inspiration definitely inspires!

How to Be Joyful

I once heard it remarked by a great contemporary sage, that to be joyful one must travel. Another great sage exclaimed to be joyful, one only needs to eat meat as a treat. So which is it? Does one need to travel to be joyful, or to eat meat in a delightful way? Perhaps both methods will result in great joy; depending on to where one travels and the quality of the meat. For example, one could enjoy a great steak and thereby become full of vigor and convert this newly fortified energy into joy. Or one could travel to some great paradise and bask in the beauty.

To be sure, one wants to be happy and full of joy. But is this any easy task to accomplish. If it were so simple, then would not everyone be joyful? If being elated were so simple, then would people need counsellors, doctors and prescriptions to be jubilant, or just plan glad? Obviously not. So, it is a complex matter, then to be ecstatic. Is there a formula for being in a good mood? It is on this topic that we will now, for a moment ponder, and make an effort to explore.

Is doing what you love, or most enjoy, and then making a career out of it, the path to true happiness? Why not? What could possibly be better? Maybe this is the key to the portal of cheerful bliss. One could extrapolate, that great friends are essential to being content. While there is adage, “That misery loves company.” Could it not instead be more correct to say?: “That delightfulness is best, when shared amongst friends.” One could then have parties, start community clubs and expand ones social network. Surely this would garner many friends. To have a good friend, must one also be good friend? This is probably likely. So, would it not follow that one should endeavor to be jolly and merry, and will thereby encounter like-minded people.

Possibly, one should just be full of joy and one will be joyful. Traveling and eating meat might also be great; unless of course you are a vegetarian. Then a veggie burger, or some soy-based food might be more pleasing to your palate.

Could it be that for every person there is a different interpretation of fun? Maybe, that is why it unclear – how to be joyful. Until we can agree on a shared perception of what makes one happy, we cannot speak intelligently about being in such a state of mind.

How to Be Number One On Google?

How to be number one the Google search engine? How does one get listed at the top of all of the advertisements when a search is conducted for a products or services that one offers? Recently I spoke with a fine gentleman who has a top spot on Google. He has no formal technological training. But what he does have is persistence.

He constantly writes articles about a variety of topics and posts them on various website throughout the internet or on the World Wide Web. Perhaps the latter more specifically explains the nature of search-ability and how our use of interconnected communication actually operates. In all I recall that he said he has written upwards of more than one thousand articles thus far. This fine gentleman explained to me that he will often submit articles to existing blogs, newspapers and other publications, online and in-print, asking only that they credit his blog with the authorship of the article. As a result, many internet surfers who read these articles are in-turn inspired to visit his blog. His blog is number one on Google.

He also has the top stop on YouTube. His videos are useful in helping novice blogspot developers to build and enrich their blog to maximize readership. It is perhaps due to this fine gentleman’s knowledge of sales & marketing that he is able to hone his skills online.

Moreover, when I asked him for advice on how to increase visitors to my website and blog, he told me not to think in technical terms. Instead, he suggested that I consider what people want to read about. Trends in the media and in discussions on the internet on various blogs are the key topics of interest to readers. He also suggested that I create video of my website / blog using a variety of software options and then to post the video on YouTube. I thought that he must be joking. In my own estimation, I did not believe that anyone would want to view a video of a website / blog on YouTube. But in my efforts to create a video of my website / blog and post it there, I came to realize that I was not the only person to utilize this marketing effort. Actually, this process of website / blog promotion is quite common.

There are some great websites which I discovered in my efforts to increase traffic to my website. I will share them with you now. One was suggested by the kind sir who has the #1 spot on Google. This website is, is a virtual database of thousands of specialists in the fields of media and marketing who will help you to promote just about everything. The other website I came to discover is, which is a free website building tool that also hosts your website. It comes complete with a variety of templates, according to your desired design style.

One other process that this top ranking search-engine-guru told me he employs to be among the top listed sites on the internet is that he creates advertisements for business and then contacts them to find out if his ads have resulted in inquiries. If so, then he pitching the companies in the following way. He tells them that he initially created the ad for them gratis (free / complementary), but if they would like to continue to benefit from the customer contacts resulting from this online promotional strategy, then they will need to pay for the ad. Based on the high volume of generated business from the ads, these companies are very grateful and willing to compensate the fine gentleman for his beautifully constructed ad. What an idea. No wonder why this man’s blog has the highest number of views on the the largest search engine in the world.

I hope that this advice helps you to grow and enhance your website / blog. While I do not have the #1 position on Google, I would certainly like to increase the number of visitors to my website. Kindly help me to do so by encouraging others to visit

Business Communications Strategies

All business communication strategies are offer great value and ample benefits. That is a solid rule to follow and useful perspective to have. When vetting potential clients, one should know that there are key indicators of their actual intention to initiate a business relationship or not. Foremost among these clear signs of intent to create or seem to create a business arrangement are consistency.

Consistency is a major sign of a willingness to initiate, establish, build, maintain and grow a business relationship. For example, if a potential client requests a meeting, then be sure let them choose the date. This way, if they later need to reschedule, the onus is on them to explain why they were not able to meet on the date that they chose for getting together. If the meeting is rescheduled numerous times, this is a clear indicator of a lack commitment to the project. One should be careful to not offer any advice or do any work, until the meeting occurs and / or until a retainer is established. Otherwise, one could easily begin working for free and once this process begins, it will be expected of the potential client. Do not allow this pattern to manifest. Set clear terms for communication, for meetings, for work to be completed and timelines for all aspects of the working relationship.

As well, if there are initially many phone calls, without a meeting being set, then this is a clear indicator that the relationship is becoming one of a social nature and not being focused on a project. As early as possible in the business communications process; request that the potential client complete an intake form, or to send an e-mail detailing the nature of the work they are seeking to be completed. If the potential client is unwilling to commit the ideas to writing, then it is likely that they are not serious about a business partnership. Also, limit the number and length of telephone calls and be sure to hold a meeting as early as possible within the onset of communications.

Be sure to document all communications, by phone and by e-mail. If documents were created and mailed, be sure to be scrupulous in having at least one copy other than the original. Later on, once it has been determined that the business relationship is not going to be moving forward, one can reference dates and times of telephone calls, e-mail correspondence and the time spent creating any written materials. Therefore, one can create and send an accurate invoice for the time spent for working on the project.

Only you can determine your value and worth. But there are some people in this world that will quite happily assign work to you and expect you to begin completing it without committing to any payment. They will create much hype as to the importance and value of the project to the community and to the business world. Then they will try to persuade you to be part of the project because of what they believe to be your expertise in this area. But do not be wooed, but frivolous words of praise. Either establish the seriousness of the business relationship and set the payment terms or just accept that you are willing to volunteer your time for the financial gain of the so-called potential client.
