Small Business Marketing Advice – Gold Or Garbage?

There is no shortage of people who are churning out advice on how to do small business marketing or which small business marketing ideas will improve your business. Before you begin to utilize or implement any of their marketing tips or suggestions you need to ask yourself some important questions. You will want to use the tried and true who, where, when, why, what and how.

Who is giving you this advice? Have they ever owned a small business and did they succeed with the same small business marketing strategies? Where have they applied it? Did they use their ideas or strategies for online marketing or offline marketing? When did they use use these marketing strategies? Why do they know or think that these specific marketing strategies or ideas will pay off? Why are they sharing these ideas with you? What do they have to gain from sharing or from you using their ideas on marketing?

Do not take me wrong. A great deal of the marketing advice being shared on the internet is of value. It is and always be your responsibility to test and see if it viable for your small business. Recently I received a series of emails from a self-proclaimed small business marketing expert. In my opinion there were a couple of definite problems with his approach. First problem with his marketing advice is that it was a carbon copy of emails I had received earlier in the day. I can appreciate someone wanting to learn from the masters in the industry but this is not how you do it. Second problem was that he was duplicating some very dubious advice.

Now I will admit I could be wrong on this small business marketing expert's advice but for me it runs contrary to common sense. One of the subject lines was simply, "ignore me". I did as I was told and ignored the email for as long as it took to delete it. I did however open up a later email from the series. All the way through the email I was told why I would not want to take action with the offer. It was one of the clumsiest attempts at reverse psychology I had ever seen. Whatever marketing advice finds its way to you, do yourself a favor and put it to a credibility test with the six questions; who, where, when, why, and how. …

Wild Money – The Real Way to Pick 5-35

The state of Rhode Island has a progressive jackpot game called Wild Money. This is a popular lottery game because of its two features – the rolling jackpot and the extra ball. With a starting jackpot of $ 20,000, it can progressively increase until it's won. The highest it's been was at $ 601,206 in March of 2006.

Wild Money play card has 5 boards costing $ 1 each to play. You can maximize all play boards on one card. Five numbers are to be chosen from 1 to 35. You can either choose the numbers yourself or have Quick Pick choose for you. Having all your five numbers drawn will win you the jackpot. But if you were not to get all 5 numbers, you still have a chance with extra ball. This is an extra draw from the remaining 30 numbers. A winning extra ball draw correspondents to a secondary prize. This allows you to have six chances of winning. Winning combination is drawn live on WPRI-TV every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 7:29 PM. Bets can be placed up to 5 minutes prior to the draw and 5 minutes after.

When betting on Wild Money, make sure to bet on more than 5 groups of numbers. And always bet on scientific combinations rather than on whim. There are numbers that you need to avoid when playing this lottery game. Stay away from combinations that have already won before; consecutive numbers (1 2 3 4 5 or 2 4 6 8 10); single number group (all single digits, 20's or 30's); patterns (straight or cross pattern appearing on the card); multiples (3 6 9 12 15) and same last digits (1 11 21 31). This is for the obvious reason that these combinations are less likely to be drawn. In fact the probability of them winning is less than 1{4917788a0bd7aa7369c2a945027b4fe6c9853cda4150a24fe1255b18ce3083dc}.

As much as possible, avoid employing Quick Picks as it will just give you random combination. If you really want to win this game, make an effort to analyze the previous winning combinations and do not just play on significant numbers like birthdays, ages of family members and the like. A well-balanced combination is also more likely to win. Choose a right mix of odd and even numbers, as well as high and low. Following the sum advice is also makes good sense. The sum of your chosen combination should be between 66 and 112. This will give you 70 percent probability of winning.

Playing the Rhode Island Wild Money gives you better odds of winning with 1 in 324,632. Add to that the odds of winning the extra ball. No other lottery game can offer the same opportunities of winning. The revenue from lottery sales is used by the State of Rhode Island to fund various public services, from education to health care. What better way to spend money than to play a lottery game that would benefit your fellow citizen and, at the same time, may …

How I Made Money in Real Estate No Money, No Credit, No Experience!

First I'd like to preface that I am not a Guru! I am not selling a seminar, workshop, boot camp or mentoring
program. I created this site to answer the question I am so often asked, "How did you get started and make money in real estate?"

If my comments seem boastful, recognize that there are many others who have done far greater than me.
My hope is that this article will serve as an encouragement to "Newbies", those who are just starting out in
real estate. You can make money in real estate with no money, no credit, no prior experience and in your
spare time!

I can hear you say, What spare time?
Real estate is a time-money business. You've got to have one or the other and preferably both. I did not have
either, so I decided I would make the time to make the money. Once I made time to make money, the
question was how do I make money in real estate with no money, no credit and no experience? I had never
bought a property, did not even like the thought of real estate. Tenants, fixing toilets and dealing with
evictions was not for me, but I had heard of others making loads of money in real estate. The question was
how?

Since I love to read and love good coffee, typically a trip to the bookstore was the first step in my quest to
find out how to make money in real estate with no money, no credit and no experience. Browsing through
the books I came across a couple that were particularly interesting to me. What the heck, I'll spend $ 15.00.

A WEEK LATER I MADE $ 6500.00 !!! THE WEEK AFTER THAT I MADE $ 8000.00 !!!
NO MONEY, NO CREDIT, NO EXPERIENCE, NO SEMINAR, NO BOOT CAMP, AND NO GURU.

As a beginner, flipping properties is the technique you need to generate fast cash. You do not have to buy a
house, just put it under contract and flip it. All I did was made some cheap letter flyers, passed them out, found
a motivated seller, put it under contract and flipped the property to the end Buyer and cashed the check! I was so thrilled to say the least. I did it again and again.

Again, you do not have to buy a house, just put it under contract for one price and flip it for a higher price. Buy and hold, lease options and all other methods should be used after you've built a solid cash foundation. There are lots of investors out there in serious financial trouble using rehabs and multiple rental income strategies. Also you do not need expensive seminaries and boot camps. If you can afford them go, but I did not. After I made my first flips, I bought some courses.

I've found that chat sites can quickly overwhelm a new person with such diverse opinions, and can cause confusion. Do not get …

How a Hermit Can Earn Money From His Cave

Are you a hermit? Do you like being alone? Maybe you are becoming more of a hermit and wish you could earn money from the comforts of your cave, or home, without all the office politics and gossip swirling around you. More and more people are finding the life of the hermit, or at least a more independent working environment to be their perfect comfort zone. Whether you are still employed for a big company or venturing out into your own business, the less complicated situation of working with yourself can lower stress levels for many, and make others more productive.

Back in the old days the hermit had to find himself a cave and basically live off the land. He had little earning potential and probably would have a hard time with those sales calls. Today, even if you lived in a cave, as long as you had the right cell phone you could make sales calls and even work on your website to bring business to you. This potential to earn money from wherever your home is makes a lot of people venture into this perspective and build from the ground up on their dreams.

Remember the days when you had to work in a stuffy office separated by mere partitions as your whole existence was a small cube of space with your computer, a phone, and maybe a couple of pictures of loved ones sitting on an unimaginative desk? Now, you have the option to earn money while stretching out at your own personal desk, in your own private work environment, and don’t have to hear the annoying lady next to you talk about her ingrown toenail or about her latest love life issues. You can be your own boss, and earn money from your own personal paradise.

Why would anyone want to earn money while suffering so much when he or she could merely have it all at his or her location of choice? Mostly because they just do not realize how easy it is to set them up with a home-based opportunity. Do your research, and you will find that there are many things that can be done from home, or even more importantly, you can create your own business which will allow you to focus on your skills and continue working from home every day without ever looking back at your cubicle days.…
