Your Questions About Anonymous Email

Sharon asks…

If you send someone an anonymous email, can that person find out who sent it?

I know that they can probably find my IP address but once they have that, can they find out the identity of the person who sent the anonymous email.

Also, please not that when I set up my Yahoo! account, the personal info I put in was also made up, to keep me anonymous.

Thanks.

It is possible to find out an IP address but I doubt if they can find out who sent it by this. It takes special software and usually only internet providers or law enforcement can get a home address from an IP address. The internet provider will not release this information to just anyone.

The link below shows the way to get an IP address:

Your Questions About Low Cost Franchises

Laura asks…

Any suggestions on the best low cost ( cheap ) sports, health, fitness, exercise franchise.?

Any suggestions on the best low cost ( cheap ) sports, health, fitness, exercise franchise.?
I am on a low budget. I want to start an easy business to make extra money to supplement my income. Forget about Jazzercise, it’s old and too expensive. Any suggestions?

barry0912 answers:

My girlfriend just started a Belly-Dancercise program and she is making money. It is easy, low cost program that combines easy, modified belly dance moves with music and exercise. The entire concept is fantastic.
Also, Belly-Dancercise is not a franchise — it’s better than that because she does not owe royalties or fees. She teaches Belly-Dancercise in her house and the local gym is adding her program too. Another cool thing is that we want to take a cruise and she is looking into teaching the program on the ship. I think the professional package is under $200 (a special).
You can find it here: http://www.bellydancercise.com or at Belly Dance College: http://www.bellydancecollege.com Check them out.

Will you take my 5min survey on local TV news?

We’re students doing a market research project on local news viewing habits.
Survey is fast and easy – it would really help us out!

Ok, I have. Hope this helped. It took less than 5 minutes and I actually enjoyed completing this. Conclusion in my case is that I follow the news more on TV (and radio) and somewhat less via the Internet.

Internet

when it comes to your internet marketing campaign, the net is full of potential snags. Emerge unscathed by avoiding these 7 deadly sins
Entrepreneur, Jan, 2006 by Catherine Seda
THE INTERNET is always in motion. That’s both good news and bad news: You can immediately change your online marketing campaigns to produce better results, but your results can also take a nose dive if you’re not paying attention. Protect your campaigns from these costly mistakes:

1. LOSING AD TRACKING CODE: If a previously profitable ad campaign tanks, find out if your site pages embedded with ad tracking code have been accidentally replaced. Remind your web team to download site pages from the server before working on them.

2. FALLING TO REMOVE OUTDATED OFFERS: Keep track of your special promotions so you can replace the copy on any online campaign you’re running as well as the ad’s corresponding landing page.

3. MISSING DEFERRED ACTIONS: Not all prospects click on your ad and take action right away. Set your cookie length or your ad tracking solution’s settings for a minimum of 30 days to properly credit marketing sources.

4. IGNORING SUSPICIOUS CLICKS: Study the log files in your traffic reports if you notice a sudden spike from your pay-per-click campaigns. You might need to fix your campaigns, remind team members not to click your ads, or address competitors engaging in click fraud.

5. FORGETTING TO MONITOR COMPETITORS: When competitors change their offers, yours may no longer be compelling. Watch your marketing space to respond quickly with your own new promotions and maintain your lead flow.

6. NOT OPTIMIZING OFFERS: Stop running the same marketing message! Improve your campaign performance and reach new customers by continuously testing innovative offers. You’ll also maintain your competitive edge.

7. OVERLOOKING YOUR CONVERSION RATES: A tiny increase in your website conversion rate can make your revenue and profits skyrocket, so don’t focus exclusively on your marketing campaigns. Your site also plays a critical role in your marketing performance.

In your quest to grow your business by using internet marketing, respond to any warning signs, and maximize your current campaigns before you initiate new ones. You’ll improve your bottom line without spending a dime.

barry0912 answers:

Smoking Stinks!
Maybe a picture of the Mucus critter in the advertisements, pictures of stinky things, socks, skunks, dog poo ( I heard that there is a chemical in dog feces that is in cigarettes), etc. Good luck!

Nancy asks…

How do you feel about 9+ Month Title reigns?

barry0912 answers:

I think its great, as long as the champion doesn’t get stale and boring.
It certainly gives the titles more prestige, an if someone has the title for that length then it makes it more special when someone else actually wins it.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Chris asks…

i’ve looked for a job all over the internet, but i have a bachelors and all the jobs are useless, now what?

hi, i’ve been to monster, careerbuilder, hotjobs, and craigslist and no luck pertaining to me having a bachelors, specifically a bachelors in business, specializing in marketing IMC. i’ve been looking about two to three times a week and none of the jobs are good — they’re all implicitly shady, i just feel it. what can i do to find a job without looking at these sites? thank you 🙂
sorry for my brief and unclear explanation of my experience. by shady, i mean, just about all of the company profiles seem to primarily utilize cold calling, door to door, or dirty sales techniques to exist. i got a degree so i don’t have to do that. i have 2 years experience in customer service, but that’s all. i’m 23 and just graduated a month ago. thanks all 🙂

barry0912 answers:

Get off the internet.

Most people do not find jobs through the job web sites like monster etc.

I work as an adjuster. I have marketing reps with vendors (restoration companies, rental companies etc) that we use visit me often. There job is to try to get me to use them – instead of the other guy.

Sure, they post ads on the internet and in industry publications.

But they get my business, because they come into my office an meet me. They bring managment to my office to meet me. So that if I have a problem – I know the manager and can call them to get the problem solved. They get my business, not because of the internet ads, but because of the interpersonal relationship they take the time to develop with me.

All job hunting is …..is marketing. But instead of selling a service you are selling yourself.

So, if you are selling yourself… Why would you hang everything on the internet – moster.com, careerbuilder.com. I don’t have marketing degree….but I doubt a sucessful marketing strategy relies only on 1 soure.

So, keep searching the internet and the sunday paper. Also search state and federal goverment web sites. Many communities have their own career finder website for local companies- search those.

Go meet and register with every employment agency you can. You can get some temp work – so the money will help. And many companies do not post job openings– but use temp agencies to screen potential employees.

Join the local Jaycees. Get to know people. Let them know you are looking for a job. Many people find jobs b/c they knew someone at the company. Develop a network.

Get involved in volunteer work. You may meet someone at that volunteer fundraiser that is a potential job connection. And, since you are not working – you have the time and it helps to build your resume. Pick something you are interested in and get involved. The only thing it will cost you is time– and you have that.

Let every friend and family member know you are looking for a job and are open to anything.

Don’t restrict yourself. There are way more marketing majors than marketing jobs. So, be willing to look at any job you qualify for. You may find that you end up in an industry that you never thought you would be in – but love.

Start sending out resumes and cover letters. Make sure there are no mistakes in either. They must be perfect or they get tossed.

Make sure to have a resume that applies to the job you are looking for. Don’t send a resume to an insurance company to apply for an adjusters position with an objective that says you are looking for a job in the marketing field.

Be sure that your resume stresses the experience/education that applies to that job.
An insurance company will want to see a 4 year college degree and good customer service skills, time management, organization. So, make sure your resume reflects those values. But this may not be what a marketing position wants — they may be more interested in your education.

If you don’t have experience in a specific field, you usually need a contact in the company. So really “network”. If the company has an opening, the fact that an employee recommended you will greatly increase your chance of getting an interview. It won’t get you the job (you still have to do that in the interview) but it will go a long way to getting you the interview.

I have a history degree. When I got out of college, I went to work as an assistant manager in a retail store. I had a family connection. I did that for a year and got some good customer service experince and a good dose of “grow up”. I then got on with a major insurance company. (Again, I had another family member that worked with that company in a different state). I was hired to work as an insurance adjuster.

I have been working as an adjuster for 12 years now. I’m in a profession where I can take care of myself and support a family. When I was in college – could I have told you this would be the profession I’d be in? No.

So, be open to any opportunity that presents itself and start developing and working your network. A company is not going to just show up at your door begging you to work for them…..you have to work hard and find that job.

Good Luck.

Positions In Marketing?

Okay I’m currently working on my AA Degree in Business. But what I really want to get into is Marketing/Advertising. So far all I know about positions in Marketing is a Marketing Executive. Can anyone please tell me what are the positions in Marketing/Advertising starting from the bottom all the way to the top!!

US Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook:
Advertising, Marketing, Promotions, Public Relations, and Sales Managers
http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos020.htm

Advertising managers. Advertising managers direct a firm’s or group’s advertising and promotional campaign. They can be found in advertising agencies that put together advertising campaigns for clients, in media firms that sell advertising space or time, and in companies that advertise heavily. They work with sales staff and others to generate ideas for the campaign, oversee a creative staff that develops the advertising, and work with the finance department to prepare a budget and cost estimates for the campaign.

Marketing managers. Marketing managers work with advertising and promotion managers to promote the firm’s or organization’s products and services. With the help of lower level managers, including product development managers and market research managers, marketing managers estimate the demand for products and services offered by the firm and its competitors and identify potential markets for the firm’s products. .

Promotions managers. Promotions managers direct promotions programs that combine advertising with purchasing incentives to increase sales. Often, the programs are executed through the use of direct mail, inserts in newspapers, Internet advertisements, in-store displays, product endorsements, or other special events.

Public relations managers. Public relations managers plan and direct public relations programs designed to create and maintain a favorable public image for the employer or client. For example, they might write press releases or sponsor corporate events to help maintain and improve the image and identity of the company or client.

In large organizations, public relations managers may supervise a staff of public relations specialists. (See the Handbook statement on public relations specialists.) They also work with advertising and marketing staffs to make sure that the advertising campaigns are compatible with the image the company or client is trying to portray. In addition, public relations managers may handle internal company communications, such as company newsletters, and may help financial managers produce company reports. They may assist company executives in drafting speeches, arranging interviews, and maintaining other forms of public contact; oversee company archives; and respond to requests for information. Some of these managers handle special events as well, such as the sponsorship of races, parties introducing new products, or other activities that the firm supports in order to gain public attention through the press without advertising directly.

Sales managers. Sales managers direct the distribution of the product or service to the customer. They assign sales territories, set sales goals, and establish training programs for the organization’s sales representatives. (See the Handbook statement on sales representatives, wholesale and manufacturing).
