i’ve noticed more companies using common words, with a shorter, uncommon spellings. take “flikr” for instance. i’ve always liked the word “focus” spelled “FOKUS”. that’s how some countries in europe spell it.

What are some good free online stock market simulation games?

Question by checky: What are some good free online stock market simulation games?
I am thinking of the sort of site that gives you a certain amount of fantasy money to invest, then tracks your investment day-to-day with the real stock market figures. A site many people use would be good, run by a trustworthy company or person. The less info I have to give them when I register, the better – I hate spam and having to give my personal info to everyone on the web.

Is Bellafina a good brand or company to buy instruments from?

Question by Haley Lam: Is Bellafina a good brand or company to buy instruments from?
I’m planning to buy a 5-String Violin, but I’m not sure if they are a good brand or company or not

Best answer:

Answer by dlashof
The 5 string may be ok, but in general those are not good instruments. You should not buy a violin based on brand name but rather on sound. One might be good the next absolute junk, that is the problem with instruments in that price range.

A 5 string violin that costs less than around $ 400-500 is not worth purchasing; just putting quality strings on them doesn’t solve the instruments problems. The quality of the parts and sound make them a waste of money and will cost you more in the long run. These cheap instruments are made with cheap materials. The Maple that is used in the instruments is softer than it should be making the pegs wear the holes in the peg box prematurely. In addition the back also being made of this soft maple makes for a dull unappealing sound. The top which is made of inferior spruce creates an unfocused sound and is weaker and more susceptible to damage. The ebony fitting like the fingerboard and pegs (if they are actually ebony) are also softer than they should be, making them wear more quickly. The varnish is usually a sprayed on lacquer which is too hard and creates a hard rough sound because it keeps the wood from vibrating. Just the wood used for a proper beginner level violin costs over $ 125, so you can’t get a whole instrument made for anything close to that that is any good.

When you purchase an instrument over the internet, you have no idea what it will sound like. A picture on a web site with a description tell you nothing about how an instrument sounds or how it will hold up. You also have no one to go to if you have any problems after you receive it. A violin needs to be played to see if you care for the sound. If you don’t play yet, you need someone that is proficient enough with the instrument to demonstrate it for you. Internet sites come and go as it is real easy to just rename the site and start over.

So do yourself a favor and save up some money and get an instrument that you will be happy with. The cheap instruments with their poor sound and poor quality will just frustrate you and you will give up, then all of your time and money will have been wasted. You can also rent a violin and a good store will allow a portion of your rent to apply towards the purchase of an instrument. The better the store, the more of your money will apply. Violin stores will typically offer you the best selection, the best quality and the most rental credit. Music stores will have some violins but not the selection or the quality and no one on staff that understands violins, they are very different from guitars. Value for value, you will get a much better deal at a violin store.

If you need to get something off the internet, do yourself a favor and look here
anything they sell will be of a good quality worth purchasing.

As a professional violin maker and repairmen with 35 years experience in the retail violin market, 40 years as a violinist and a onetime teacher, I have seen this subject from all sides. I hate to see people waste their money on these unusable instruments and then having to pay more to make them even function.

What adult entertainment companies have good stocks?

Question by Mav_X_Q: What adult entertainment companies have good stocks?
I know Playboy and Penthouse do.

Then there is some Australian brothel-hotel company that offers stock through ASX.

thank you

Best answer:

Answer by Space Invader101
Forget it!!!

Everyone loves sex, but on the markets it’s all down hill. Playboy’s near bankruptcy.

As for a brothel on the ASX, never knew that one. Melbourne’s Daily Planet Brothel used to be on the ASX, but got delisted.

Adult Shop (ASC) is on the ASX market, but it’s no good. It has very poor liquidity and the company made a loss during 2008

The problem is this:
1. Rather than paying for adult media, people can get it for free or larger amount for a small subscription fee online. This puts a lot pressure on US adult media companies like Playboy, Penthouse and Private Media.

2. There’s too much competition. You only have to do a Google search with sexually explicit words to get millions of web sites.

Best to keep your sex life and financial investments separate.

Question by Jeff B: Looking for good ways to market a service?
I have business ideas but always get stuck on how to market them. Do you have any marketing methods that have worked well for you in the past? These could be online or off line. Thank you for your help

Best answer:

Answer by TradeMark Express
Have you thought about pay per click programs? The two biggest, I think, are Yahoo! and Google

A couple free resources – check out the sources box for links:

1) Create a blog pertaining to your field

2) Use Yahoo! 360, Yahoo! Local & Yahoo! Groups

Also, consider signing up for an affiliate program. These programs enable you to advertise on other’s sites (your affiliates) and once a sale is made to you, your affiliates & the program are paid a commission.

I listed a few handy sites & articles relating to marketing, promotion & advertising. I hope they’re helpful for you.

Hope that helps! I wish you much success & happiness in all your ventures!

do fullsail universities internet marketing graduates make good money when they get out of school?

Question by Chad: do fullsail universities internet marketing graduates make good money when they get out of school?
i just wanted know if this program was the right choice to make a lot of money and how easy it is to get a job with a bachelors or masters in internet marketing from full sail university.

Best answer:

Answer by Joe Bennet
That’s a question that can’t really be answered. The success you get out of a program is limited to the amount of work you put into it.

If you just breeze by and barely pay attention you won’t go anywhere. I haven’t heard much about Fullsails program but I’ve seen success stories on LinkedIn and other sites about University of San Francisco’s Internet marketing program Try going to places like Linkedin and you should see realtime reviews.

Good luck!

Can anyone tell me what is the 4life company and how good are their products?

Question by Elvin R: Can anyone tell me what is the 4life company and how good are their products?
I’m thinking about buying products from this company and I want to know how good are they. If you can, give me details on their performance.

Best answer:

Answer by onlymatch4u
They are like a lot of companies that have a nice looking web site and say lots of flowery things that make the products sound good, but when you start analyzing the ingredients and look at what they are really saying, it’s basically over priced dead food that won’t nourish your body, but give you some initial reactions and then damage the DNA of your cells and shorten your life.

When you hear that a “scientist” or “researcher” has discovered that a particular substance caused a unique reaction in the body and a company like this claims to put that substance in the product, you automatically assume you are going to get the same results. That is indoctrination. Marketing people are very good at using this technique.

A very good example of this when you hear that sailors of old found out that by eating limes they did not get scurvy. Then we hear the reason was due to the vitamin C in the limes. So now the vitamin people tell you that their product contains 1,000 mg. of vitamin C and you should take it everyday because it will keep you from getting sick by getting rid of the vitamin C deficiency you may or may not have.

The problem is that Ascorbic Acid being sold as vitamin C is NOT vitamin C, but only a part of the C complex. Ascorbic Acid won’t cure scurvy and in fact, it causes you to deplete minerals in your body and is in deed, NOT good for you. ALL “B” vitamins being sold in health food stores and pharmacies, etc. are NOT natural at all, in fact, they are ALL made from the petroleum distillate derivative of Coal Tar, a dead chemical that your body rejects as toxic. Look at the color of your urine the next time you take one of those pills.

The other problem is that these companies use grade 1 and 2 herbs and in many cases mix the wrong products together. They also put excipients in the pills, like Magnesium Stearate that is an immune suppressant, nutrient absorption inhibitor, and a TRANS FAT, etc. They typically put over 5% of the total milligrams listed on the label of that junk in the pills. Not for your health, but to make their manufacture easier. 5% of 1,000 milligrams is 50 milligrams of TRANS FAT going into your body each time you take one. And most people don’t just take one pill either. I think when you truly analyze that junk, you will see that it is NOT good for you.

good luck to you

Small Business Advertising: Where is a good place to advertise a small business locally?

Question by Colin B: Small Business Advertising: Where is a good place to advertise a small business locally?
Our target is middle/upper class people. Any ideas besides the local newspaper and craigslist? We need to get the word out there!

Best answer:

Answer by jt66250
Its always good to have a website… this way you can target your local market with online and offline advertising..

In online advertising there are two major distinctions, paid and not paid (FREE). Paid online advertising is easy to understand. You have banners placed on other websites or emails that are sent to an email mailing list and you have pay per click (PPC) which is you paying for an ad placement on another website or search engine. The placement is charged a fee with a fluctuating rate for each click to your ad that takes a prospective customer to your website.

Banner ad placement works best when there is a limited capacity offer such as a short supply of a product or service or you have a limited amount of time for the offer. Banners are normally more expensive so its a better idea to have a banner for a trip to Vegas or next weeks rock concert than a landscaper service in June.

PPC is good for most small business advertising but unfortunately if its not done the right way, it can be quite expensive. PPC, if done right can bring a very high return on investment (ROI) and can catapult your business from nothing, to a steady stream of customers in a short period of time, at a fraction of other advertising methods.

Unpaid or free advertising in most cases will not cost you money, but it will cost you time. If done correctly and thoroughly, certain aspects of free advertising for your small business will take many hours to perfect. The most effective forms of free advertising are search engine optimization (SEO) and social networking.

SEO in simple terms is building your online presence to provide the best chance of being seen by search engines such as Yahoo® and primarily Google®. This is done in 4 primary steps:

1. Establish keywords for the basis of creating content
2. Building content around and about your keywords
3. Linking to and from similar websites with good content
4. Adding more content based on keywords

Notice the focus is on your websites’ content in all four steps.
SEO is not easy because it it perpetually evolving and it involves setting a plan in motion, then waiting for results, while working it for different angles behind the scenes. In the end you still have no control over how your results are presented, only the search engines have it. Your SEO work is never done and it is time consuming, but with the right strategy and implementation, you will achieve great success. For more information visit our website section on SEO: 7 Steps to an Effective SEO Advertising Strategy.

For social networking, its a little different than SEO but its basis, free online advertising, and the end result, a very high ROI, are the same. Social networking is establishing a presence on a community based website, or creating a community on your own website. Social networking provides you with not only free advertising but a constant source of communication with your customers, and potential customers. Using social networking relies on tapping into the organic interest people will generally have in the content you provide. Social networking websites are growing at a rapid pace, and the amount of time people spend on those websites makes it more likely you will be exposed to more people. Establishing your presence on a social networking website should be consistent with your overall web presence and if done right will only enhance your small business footprint online.
