Your Questions About Anonymous

Susan asks…

What should I do? An anonymous letter was sent to my organization maliciously destroying my integrity?

Recently, my organization head received an anonymous letter saying I did extortion and accepted bribe money for the past two years? The writer is unknown, no address, and it mentions no specific victim of extortion. It contains no lead to a fact of the complain. Honestly, I did not do any such unethical acts!. My supervisor and boss said they will review the over a thousand cases of my work for the past two years, and I am not afraid. What will I do? Who could have done this to me?

barry0912 answers:

You may never know who sent the letter. While its normal to wonder, it can also drive you crazy.

The most important thing in this situation is to remain calm, keep your cool, smile, cooperate and go about your work. Do not allow the inquiry to interfere with your continuing to do a good job.

Second, your organization should contain any possible damage to your reputation. If they feel the need to look into the letter, then fine. Not knowing all the facts, its hard to say if they are acting correctly in even responding this way. They should, however, act in a manner that respects your reputation. The inquiry should be limited to what’s necessary to produce results, and the people involved should be limited only to those that can offer necessary and relevant information and / or have an absolute need to know in order to complete the inquiry. That’s normally legal, HR, your supervisor(s) and other employees that have direct and personal knowledge of important facts. They should do what’s necessary to finish the inquiry as soon as reasonably possible so everyone can put the incident behind the organization.

The specific rules on these matters differ by country and state. Also, the allegations can be criminal, which is fairly serious. I would consider consulting with an employment lawyer in your area. I would avoid involving counsel in the discussions with your employer, and I might even hesitate to make public the fact you are consulting with counsel. That tends to put the discussion on an adversarial footing, some people will react negatively (assume you have something to hide), and it may appear as if your concerned and not cooperating. Having said that, getting some advice in the background is always a good thing … And you can work with your counsel on when, or if, its ever reasonable to involve him / her in the matter.

Good Luck.

Chris asks…

How do I become truly anonymous on the internet?

I already use tor what else can I do because I heard of the government getting passed tor’s security. Is there a computer I can by that is without IP or something. I currently have a mac book are there settings I should turn off or on. How do I become truly anonymous on the internet?

barry0912 answers:

If you don’t have an IP address then it is physically impossible for you to be on the internet. End of story.

The best option would be to use Tor AND pay for a professional VPN that DOES NOT keep any IP records period (some do even though they say they protect identity). Additionally use a browser which randomizes the user agent per every webpage, does not keep cookies, and does not support java.

True anonymity is impossible without getting into a main internet line without the use of an ISP.

barry0912 answers:

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate in hiring, firing, compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

In addition, it is unlawful to discriminate on any of these five bases in selection for apprenticeship, training, or retraining programs or to limit, segregate, or classify employees in ways which may deprive them of employment opportunities or adversely affect their status as an employee. It is also illegal to indicate preference or to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in advertisements relating to employment.

Mark asks…

Is the “Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964” valid for ALL countries in the world?

Or does each country have their own set of laws for governing safety in work-place?

barry0912 answers:

First, that law you mentioned only applies to the USA.
Second, it’s NOT a “safety in work-place” law. It’s an anti-discrimination law.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Strategies

What marketing strategy does iwon.com use?

barry0912 answers:

Small Business Marketing Strategy: Target the up-and-coming search engines

While Google still rules the roost when it comes to Internet search engines, and Yahoo is firmly entrenched in second spot, a number of new start-ups are hoping to give them a run for their money. And a good small business marketing strategy would be to check them out and see how you can make them work for your site!

Some of the new up-and-comers include:

Powerset (www.powerset.com): A “natural language” search engine

Hakia (www.hakia.com): A “meaning-based” search engine

Wikia(www.wikia.com): A “community-based” search engine

ChaCha(www.chacha.com): A “social networking-based” search engine

Snap (www.snap.com): A search engine that offers visual previews

It’s a smart small business marketing strategy to continue optimizing for the Google, Yahoo, and MSN search engines as they are by far and away the most popular — but niche search engines could provide new opportunities to reach your market. Be sure to check them out!

Thomas asks…

Marketing strategies in a third-world environment?

Kiran, what a stupid answer.

barry0912 answers:

Marketing Strategies shouldn’t be different in a third world country, than they are in more developed countries.
BTW, “Third world country” is kind of offensive and politically incorrect.
In fact, people living in developing countries (rather than “third world”) generally are very sensitive to what they perceive as superiority pretensions from foreigners.
Take into account, for example, that developing countries like India and China provide a lot of top mind scientists, while other countries like Peru and Mexico have provided top artists.
You have to take into account three things:
What sort of media are you going to use? Some countries (even developing countries) enjoy widespread access to internet. In such places, that channel might work. In others, You’ll have to rely on billboards and perhaps radio ads.
What kind of message will you be sending? If your product/service is an aspirational one, then present it as such. If your product is rather a commodity, focus on availability and price.
Who is your audience? Contrary to common wisdom, there is a lot of educated people in every developing country. If you are going to cater them, then your strategies don’t need to be “streamlined” or somehow adapted. Again, if your audience is the bottom tier of the population, in terms of education and economic resources, then you should approach them in the very same way you’d approach the less educated people in your country.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing

Donna asks…

what is the importance of marketing using internet?

give more information on the benefits of using internet and
the market strategy of using internet

barry0912 answers:

As the internet is becoming such a used environment, people are using more often to find products and services. Although it is not vital to have a web presence, this does depend on the nature of your business.

If you have a small cake shop, a web presence is hardly going to make, or break your business, but could make more people in your area become aware of your shop. This does not mean that a web presence could do no benefit, in fact, if you were really ambitious, you could end up selling your cakes to people all around the country, it all depends on how far you want to go with your enterprise.

If your business can benefit from being exposed on a broader base, then an internet presence can be of very real benefit. The imporatnt thing to remember, is that by having a web site, does not automatically mean your business will suddenly be inundated with prospective clients. Your site needs to have visibility and that is another whole process altogether.

Think of it as building a hotel. You build this wonderful place and then wonder why nobody stays there. Well if no one knows about it, no one will come there. You need to advertise it and put up signs. On the internet, the “putting up of signs” is similar to finding you site/pages in the search engines. This means that your site needs to have some work done on it, to make is “search engine friendly”. You can do this yourself, or you can hire an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) company.

But beware of those companies that promise you the world, take your money and give you no results.

As a good starting point, do a search on any of the search engines for similar business models to the one you have/propose. Use search terms that would answer the kind of question your business would be in a position to answer.

Look at the results and see how many other businesses have a web presence and how they go about listing their services, or describing their business.

Nancy asks…

Please explain about emarket & internet marketing?

what are the difficulties in it?

what are its advantages & disadvantages?

Is it easy & Valuable?
My sincere thanks to both of you who helped me with your answers. I would be glad if someone gives me the specific answers for the following questions
1.what are the difficulties in it?
2.what are its advantages & disadvantages?
3.Is it easy & Valuable?

barry0912 answers:

I think the major differences is emarket marketing is more confined to staying within its market types, where Interent marketing is allowing for a much broader approach for experimenting where the best marketing campaigns will result from. Thus if your selling a specific service as a emarket business, the only way you will sell it is if you research out the sector that will be allowing the use of this service. But now in Internet Marketing having service support to offer is more like the type for allowing to find out who is interested to needing service support, and than trying to find out more of why they need this service support to find out if it will be right for them before you want to commit to making larger marketing campaigns to finding the right customers.

But both would require experimental approaches for solving which out of two different approaches used at the same time will work best for attracting more interests for itself that would be helping the individual service, emarketing or Internet Marketing to help itself promote a more concentrated effort into the found better working half. You would continue doing this to learn more about the type of customers you are actually looking for and how they are publishing their specific interests. After getting to the point of knowing exactly who your customers are suppose to be, this will be easy enough to make it to find your real customer using just Internet searches. You will quickly be able to tell if a search result is self sufficient (not needing you) or is lacking in need of your service, either it be emarketing or Internet marketing service. This should become so simple to allow you to purchase simple lists with direct contact information to finish finding out if they really are needing something your ready to sell or not. (The experiment is based around this example, if emarketing, is color blue or green more effective for introductory phases of it services; If for Internet marketing, is this group going to comment more than this group type found on the Internet. Etc. Than break down the logic even more if possible. Go into the whys of why using green to introduce a product is better by itself by searching for all the difference green has, and see which of those gets noticed more quickly. Etc. Again.)

On the topic of Internet Revolution or Digital Revolution, is it possible if you can give me some internet sources? (links that talks about internet revolution through bbc, fox, mbc, ect)

I can find articles that explain WHAT internet revolution IS, but i can’t really find articles that talk about their opinions on internet revolution, like pros or cons. Thanks!

Try a search like this using Google News:

“internet revolution” opinion

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gl=us&tbm=nws&q=internet+revolution+opinion&oq=internet+revolution+opinion&gs_l=news-cc.3..43j43i53.2755.6543.0.6825.27.10.0.17.1.0.147.1021.6j4.10.0…0.0…1ac.1.oYyXw4Gy97I#hl=en&sugexp=cpsugrccggmnoe&gs_rn=14&gs_ri=psy-ab&tok=_0bl2-O6mUsd9mEWNXQnCg&ds=n&pq=internet%20revolution%20opinion&cp=30&gs_id=40&xhr=t&q=%22internet+revolution%22+opinion&es_nrs=true&pf=p&gl=us&tbm=nws&sclient=psy-ab&oq=%22internet+revolution%22+opinion+&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.46865395,d.cGE&fp=55b25e68d9baa2dd&biw=1366&bih=643

Your other best option would be to use your local public or college library databases (such as National Newspaper Core [Proquest], EBSCO Newspapers, Opposing Viewpoints, etc.)

It may help your search of the open Web or of the databases if you can use additional related keywords in your search. Words that might signify the *kind* of opinions you’re looking to find.
Globalization
free markets
online generation
freedom
outsourcing
specific country names
censorship
the list can be extended as far as your vocabulary and time to search allows

For more ideas and/or sources open a chat with a librarian near you.

Steven asks…

What is the future of low cost airlines?

i want the future of these upcoming low cost airlines .. whether they’ll work in future , how will their costs decide their future …

barry0912 answers:

I’m not rich and I usually use business class if it’s an overnight trip but I also nevermind using economic if it’s a decent airline. Personally I really don’t like low cost airlines- the service is pure crap, business class or not. I see them no future. Decent airlines get their fares lower every year and I think more and more people choose to use them, for the low cost- taxes go higher and it all becomes unprofitable. Personally I know lots of people who don’t like low costs, like me.
