Backing Up Your PC With Military Grade Cloud Servers

Posted by on Jul 9, 2012 in Tools

How do you backup files: your videos, your photos, and your documents? If you are like some – you probably save, and store your information several different ways: 1. Free Sites Like: DropBox (documents), YouTube (videos), and Flickr (photos). 2. Paid Storage Services Like: Amazon S3 and MyPCBackUp 3. A Portable External Hard drive If you are like most – your computer hard drive is your only back up, and you keep meaning to get an additional form of storage, but it just has not happened yet. Do not risk losing your computer files. Recently my computer would not turn on.  I thought it had crashed from a power surge that occurred in a recent storm.  I had a completely “Stress Free” recovery of information because I had everything backed up.  Everything backed up from my desktop, to my laptops, to my external hard drives. I was not lucky. I have never found myself lucky with many situations like this.  I call it lesson learned.  I have lost critical data in the past, and have had to recreate, and redo work that I had already spent considerable time, and money on.  Paying staff to redo work, already done, is a cost businesses can not afford.

Posted by on Mar 7, 2012 in Do It Yourself (DIY) Techie, Internet Marketing 101

Managing your own internet marketing for your business is the not the route that I recommend for any business owner.  Why?  Because it is a waste of time to learn skills that will take years to become good enough at, and will still need to contract out some of the more technical aspects of internet marketing. But some of you maybe entrepreneurs just starting out, and like me (when I first started) do not have a choice.   Where should I register my domain name, where should I host my website, and what e-mails service should I use? Scenario: 1) I register my domain at GoDaddy.com 2) I host my website at   Hostgator.com 3) I use Google Apps as my e-mail service       When you host your domain with GoDaddy.com You may run into trouble getting your google apps to work. One of the reasons I use GoDaddy.com is because GoDaddy.com makes it easy to set up your e-mail service using google apps. 1) Register your domain name. 2) Set up your E-mail Account (Google Apps) using your domain name. While you are setting up your Google Apps – Google will request you to verify your domain name – GoDaddy.com makes this easy – just follow...

What Is A Lead Generating Website?

Posted by on Dec 18, 2011 in Internet Marketing 101

Before I am able to explain what a lead generating website is, I am going to need to provide some definitions. A Lead – whether you have an online or offline business you need leads to generate income.  Leads are potential customers, clients, names of people who have an interest in what you are selling, or in the services you are providing. An Opt-In Page or Box –  an opt-in box or page is where a lead enters their information: e-mail address, name, phone number – whatever information the business has requested to enable the business to reach out to lead at a later time.  Note the less the lead needs to fill in the better chance they are to leave their information.  An example would be  to only request a first name, and e-mail address. A Landing Page – in most cases the landing page is the home page of a lead generating website; any website.  A landing page is where a lead lands after clicking a link that interests them.  The lead may have seen a link that interested him in a Tweet, in a Facebook post, or an advertising banner on a website, and clicked the link and landed on the landing page. Irresistible Offer –...
