What is the best DVR on the market? I have cable with every HD channel available?

I am looking to find out what is the best and most feature rich DVR on the market. I would like to have features like commercial skip, ability to record multiple HD programs at once, easy to use and if possible the ability to record my programs to DVD. Do they make DVR/HD DVD player/DVD recorder all in one players? THANKS, give me a good thorough answer… I appreciate it!

Hi jt2002champ,

We prefer TiVo because of simplicity of use. The schedule is always correct because it is updated every day. I can program TiVo to record from out of town over the Internet. TiVo learns what you like and recommends shows that you might like. Often times we never would have known they were on. You can program an entire season of a given series with a single click and TiVo never forgets. You can tell TiVo you like someone or something and it will locate shows for you. For example if you tell it you like John Wayne it will watch for and record anything he is on.

With my series 2 and series 3 TiVo’s I can transfer recordings to my computer, edit them if desired then record them to a DVD.

You can also allow TiVo to share pictures and music from your computer. It will play the music and slide shows on your TV.

I could go on and on about TiVo. There is one downside and that is the monthly (you can pay yearly if you want) fee.

The series 3 TiVo and the HD Tivo are your two HD choices. Both record two channels at once and both will take a cablecard so you don’t need a special tuner box for them.

To learn all about TiVo check their web site here – https://www3.tivo.com

Check the TiVo user forum here – http://www.tivocommunity.com

The TiVo Community Store often has good bargains for TiVo’s or accessories. Check them for current pricing along with your local Best Buy – http://store.tivocommunity.com/merchant….

You need either a phone line or internet connection for TiVo to download software updates and program information.

I hope this helps you make the best decision.

First of all your need to build lot of content first. Google changed their algorithm recently. Unless you have some decent unique content one your site, you won’t be able to rank it even with thousand of quality link

You can also do social bookmark, facebook fan page, onsite SEO. Try to find someone from similar forum to post on your forum. I have an Austin base internet marketing forum and i start with networking with other internet marketer in the area

Helen asks…

Do Twitter marketing really a good strategy to grow your business?

I just want to know if other entrepreneurs do this social media marketing to boos their sales.

barry0912 answers:

Hi Taz,

Yes, Twitter as one of the social media frontrunner, became as an avenue for business owners and solo entrepreneurs to advertise and to reach potential customers via the internet. It became one of the mainstreams when it comes to social media marketing.

The fact that Twitter rank as one of the ten-most-visited websites worldwide by Alexa’s web traffic analysis means a great opportunity to all business owners to promote their products and/or services on this platform.

Here are some tips on how to have an effective Twitter markting:

1. Know the basics and lingoes of Twitter.

2. Optimize your Twitter Bio.

Make sure to fill up all the required fields to set-up your twitter page. Make it detailed. Put your website URL to your profile to drive traffic to your website. This will also allow people to find out more about your business/company.

3. Schedule your tweets and interact.

If you’re a busy person, and don’t have a budget to hire a social media assistant, “automating tweets” is the best solution to keep your page active.

4. Build Active Followers.

There are a lot of sites nowadays that can give you tons of followers in a breeze such as twellow and twiends but twitter marketing is not just about following and having millions of dormant followers. It is about “interaction”.

In using twitter for your social media campaign, “interaction” is a must. The challenge is to give your audience reason to follow you back and engage in conversation with you. In conversing with your audience, you should talk about things that interest them aside from talking about your business.

By following these tips, you will get a larger audience and a wide reach for your online presence. Just explore, enjoy, and use twitter wisely!

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Jobs

Linda asks…

Does anyone know any legitimate ways to make money on the internet?

I have a job, but I need to make some extra income. My work schedule is pretty random, so taking a second job is kind of out of the question. I know people make money online, but everything I seem to run across is a scam! I am open to pretty much anything, thanks for your help and ideas!
More specific? I have heard of people grading papers for schools, writing papers for people, etc. I don’t want to invest any money.

barry0912 answers:

Don’t bother with PTC, surveys or answering emails. They are all a waste of time. Unless you think your time is only worth 2cents an hour… Forget about them.

Selling on ebay is a quick one, but you have to have something to sell… And there are fees and listing takes a long time and if the item doesn’t sell it’s a pain to relist and you wasted a bunch of time. That’s why I don’t do that anymore.

I started Internet marketing using free sites… Weebly.com, intuit.com, blogger, wordpress, snipsly, xomba, squidoo … All free. You can do reviews of affiliate products and make a good solid income… Don’t expect a landslide of money from any one site… Build a lot of niche sites and you some will do well and some won’t. Just keep building and you will make money. No cost to you except time…

The downside of going the free route is… You own nothing, you built nothing, but you spent a lot of time doing it… If you are going to spend time… I would spend a little bit of money on a domain and hosting, building a list… And you will be investing your time in building a business that lasts…

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions… I have tons of resources available… Free training, etc.

What’s the best recipe for your favorite dish found on the Internet?

On the Internet, there must be a gazillion recipes for any dish you can dream up. Give us the name of the best dish you have personnally made that you found on the Internet. Give the link to same, so that the rest of us can cook it too.

Right now, I’m looking for a good Holiday chutney made with tomatoes.
I guess I should have mentioned that the tomatoes are from my garden. Times running out for them. Green now, but not for long.. Only about 3 -5 lbs. of the Roma’s left to ripen.
I may end up just drying them. They always taste sweeter that way. Yum.
These all sound yummy. Keep them coming guys. I have extented the time frame to max. the input. We could all use a best recipe.

I’ll throw in a favorite of mine: Baked Salmon . My wife and I use to dine at this expensive restaurant to get their tastee Salmon dish. Then one day the first wife discovered the secret, and we no longer go there. This is as simple as it gets.

Needed

Salmon for two or four
Sesame seeds
Bottle of Garlic Expression (Salad dressing) found at Krogers (Market Basket) in the refrigerated Produce area (packaged leafy vegetables area).
Oven ready dish 8 x 8 or 12 x 12 (two or four servings).

Cut servings for each party and remove skin.
Preheat oven to 350
pour Garlic Expresions over fish, leaving 1/8″ pool in dish around fish.
Put in oven for 25 – 35 min. depending on thickness of servings. Remove ten min. prior to taking out, and sprinkle Sesame seeds over fish, coating entirely. Cook 10 min. longer. Serve with favorite side dishes.

This ‘basic quiche’ recipe —

http://www.eggs.ca/recipes/Show_recipe.asp?actionID=150&NumPage=

1 1/2 cups of heavy cream is a lot, but it’s delicious, and a foolproof recipe. Beat my old ‘basic quiche’ to bits.

Add 2 cups of mushrooms — sauté them first to get out the extra water — and 1 cup of your favourite cheese(s). You will not be disappointed…

Marketing boards have great recipes, I find. For obvious reasons. I mean, the Canadian egg people did a great job of getting me to eat more eggs with just that one recipe.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Company

Thomas asks…

If I want to buy investment property in PA and I live in NY, what is the best way to set things up?

I live in NY. I want to buy investment properties out of state. I already own an S-Corp for my Internet marketing business. Should I form a new corporation or some other business as a tax shelter in case I want to invest elsewhere as well? Does it make sense to form a new company?

barry0912 answers:

I would form a new company, probably a LLC, but for liability reasons, not for tax reasons. You set up the company and fund it yourself. Then the company buys the properties (either in cash with funds you gave it, or by getting a mortgage with you personally will nonetheless have to sign for). Later if someone sues you for whatever they are suing the LLC and your personal assets cannot be attached to the lawsuit (but you are still on the hook for the mortgage). Be sure to keep all personal and LLC funds seperated – otherwise a smat lawyer will say you and the LLC were one and the same entity and therefore your personal assets should be attachable to the lawsuit.

No real tax advantages to having an LLC (but plenty of tax advantages in general to investment property).

Steven asks…

Do I put Internet as Business Expenses?

I work as a internet marketing person online for 2 different companies. When I fill my taxes I put $359.88 for comcast internet for business expenses and the refund amount went up. Do I put $359.88 again for the other companies business expenses also? Because that will make it go up also. Both jobs require the internet of course.

barry0912 answers:

“Do I put $359.88 again for the other companies business expenses also? ”

no, this would be “double dipping”. You can use an expense only once. As for your Schedule C, since the work is the same, internet marketing, it does not matter how many companies you worked for, you only file 1. If you did different work – internet marketing and landscaping – you would file 2 separate Schedule Cs.

Is the $360 solely Internet access? Does it include phone? Is the phone your Personal Line or the Business Line? Is the internet access used solely for business?

If you are using your home cable service to run your business, you may have this expense dis-allowed if you are audited.

how would you market a services company from a local market to a national market?
an Information technology services company I am interested in is based only in the local state market; however, they are interested in growth opportunities by reaching out to the national market. What are some ideas to help them branch out?
this is for personal suggestions. I am trying to get them to hire me for their staff, not push my current company’s service- as it does not meet their needs.

Lisa asks…

I’m filling in schedule C of Self Employment from last year and am confused about Expenses?

I provide a service of Internet marketing and work from home. However, the computer, desk and room where I work is not just exclusively for business, it’s our living room and general computer. So, I am not sure if I can still only fill in question 30 and attach form 8829 or if I need to fill in the full expenses bit in part II. Any help would be great!

 solar movies

barry0912 answers:

See if you meet the rules for using schedule C-EZ rather than the full schedule C. The instructions have the rules.

You can’t take a home office deduction since the room isn’t used exclusively for business. So you don’t use form 8829. And a home office deduction often triggers an audit, and yes they would very likely verify the exclusive use part.
