Terror Attacks May Boost Online Sales

Today, Terrorism is a global issue. Terror strikes are not restricted to a single community or religion but encompass the entire world. For Instance, the recent multiple shootings in NewYork at the immigration centre in Binghamton and the last year terrorist attacks in Mumbai --the financial capital of India, that targeted both Indians and foreigners. Such attacks have furthermore raised the security levels across every major country. The risk factor is so high, that the even places of leisure activities such as shopping malls, hotels, stores are on high security alerts. Overall, it has left the common man with feelings of uncertainty, distrust, sadness and loss; greatly affecting the economic scenario as well.

With the rise in such terrorist attacks and the elevated level of threat across the world; Industry professionals are speculating that, such terrorist attacks may give a boost to online sales. Though apparently a paradox, it appears to be a valid deduction based on the current situation. Let us explore this thought further.

Fear Vs Buying behaviour

Studies have specifically investigated how that, in the past, fear for personal safety has impacted consumer behavior. It was found that there is a higher tendency to consume more food and lifestyle products when subjects were confronting with fear of loss or depression. In such a situation, people go out and do what makes them feel good, which is - buy and consume more.

For Instance, in the wake of the 9/11 terrorists attacks, various media reports documented the fact that, Americans were doing all of the things they had always wanted to do, that included, a whole lot of shopping! Studies conducted showed that people purchased more expensive items such as - Rolex watches, automobiles, high-end-clothing, and other utility items, like never before. Although, once the fear subsided, everything returned to normal.

Post the twin bombings in London, the retail shoppers numbers fell sharply. People were unsure of their safety, so choose to stay away from the stores. Ebay, then was considered to be a safer alternative when the country was on a high-security alert.

Shoppers are normally deterred by threat of further disruption or perceived risk associated with in-store shopping. Therefore, Internet shopping seems like a safe medium to purchase products for personal use. Ideally, retailers should have both an online presence and a storefront. Stores with a physical presence that are known to the shoppers are more likely to be considered as safe for shopping online.

Online Vs Inshop

Shopping in the age of terrorism has dramatically evolved. It has made the world a much unsafe place for the rest of us. With the threat of economic recession coupled with shock of the terror attacks, people weigh the risks associated with in-store shopping compared to online shopping.

Forrester reports (Based on 3000 potential US online shoppers, collected on September-October 2008) on shoppers intention to purchase online:

- 48% of consumers surveyed (compared with 41% in 2007) said they can find the best values and deals online.
- 36% of consumers (compared with 22% last year) said they would be more likely to shop online due to high gas prices
- 3 in 4 online shoppers said they prefer to buy from online retailers that offer free shipping, and nearly 6 in 10 said shipping prices deter them from buying online.
(Forrester data)

Forrester report further states that 88% of U.S. online consumers say that they have bought something online in the past. They tend to shop more and more online, whenever possible, than in a physical store.

However, with trimmed shopping budgets and current economic crisis, consumers are hoping to find comparison shopping, free shipping, and better discount deals online, so that they can optimise on their time, effort and money.

Long Term Trends - Good News for Online Retailers and Consumers!

There are indications of large business opportunities in terms of online shopping. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the attacks in the U.S., UK, India and other countries around the world, there has been a shift in consumer trends. Customers prefer to scour for major brands online on popular shopping sites such as eBay, Amazon etc.

Forrester report has some good news for those planning to invest online.

Online sales will account for 7% of U.S. retail sales this year, up from 6% last year. From 2004 to 2010, Online sales are expected to grow 10 percent and 20 percent compound annual growth rate, over the next six years.

Inarguably, online and offline channels present different shopping experiences even when the same products are being purchased. Having said that, consumers do prefer to interact in a virtual environment due to its capabilities to provide Interactivity, personalised experiences, shopping tools, increased product selection and information. Hence, online retailers can boost their sales by ensuring quality deliverables, round-the-clock support system, discounts & special offers, free shipping, and secure transactions. Basically, generating an overall positive customer experience, thereby establishing brand loyalty.

Most importantly, the companies need distinctive online marketing campaigns. Companies that survived the last recession, did so with the help of strong marketing campaigns, reaching out to their customers effectively. Retailers need to work hard to ensure their customers feel secure and happy while shopping with them online and sales will increase automatically.

Free Work From Home Employment Opportunities

by: Tristram Lodge

Is there such a thing as a FREE lunch? Well no there isn’t but what should you be looking for in a home business and should you be looking for something that’s FREE? There are a lot of scams on the net, so it understandable that people will look for free home business opportunities. With a free opportunity you could end up wasting a lot of your time, it’s like the old saying “you get what you pay for”

Most home business opportunities will ask for an investment in a pack. The pack will normally be a selection of products. Should you be concerned about this, well no not if you have followed these 3 simple steps you will be OK. Also think of the investment as something for your future. It is not a burden or a waste of money.

The first this to do is Google the company name with the word scam. People will always tell others about a company that’s a scam if they have been unfortunate. Be warned you may find people who just have sour grapes about the company. You will get this in anything in life. Also if nothing comes up or very little information there is a good bet it’s a scam.

The second thing to do is Google the persons name from the company. If they are a scammer they may not use their real name. If they are genuine they will have lots of pages about themselves and the training and systems they use. This is a very good indicator to use.

The third and final thing is find out what the investment is. It should be something that is useful to you. It will be a box of products for you to try, along with sales literature and manuals. If you are asked for money up front and you getting nothing in return or something that is of little use I think it’s safe to say this could be a scam.

You may hear claims of becoming financially free overnight, or becoming a millionaire by the end of the week. Use common sense with this one and run a mile. A legitimate home business will make you a lot of money if and only if you put the work in. You will only get out what you put in.

Gold Investment

Many people are wondering where to put their money or what to invest to ensure that their money would not just disappear in to thin air. Most of you probably know what is going with world's economy due to the crisis happened in USA because of unpaid mortgage. Thus investing in real estate is not a good option nowadays. You need to invest in something certain where the value of your money is stable and not fluctuated according other values such as oil. If you ask me then I would suggest you to buy gold coins.

Why gold coins? As you all know gold has been used as a mean of payment since people knew trading. It has a very stable value and unaffected by other values. The value of gold tends to increase from time to time. So it means if you have gold now and you want to sell it ten or twenty years from now then you would gain profit. Where to buy? There is only one place in my mind if you want to buy gold bullion, gold coins or gold ira, that is GoldCoinsGain. The site is a trusted site which is a member of Aurum Advisors for gold or other valuable coins acquisition. Buying gold coins is really simple if you do it with GoldCoinsGain. So what are you waiting for, buy your gold coins now and start investing for a better future.

7 Basic Benefits from Traffic Exchange

by: Tim Rash

Traffic exchange basically means viewing others site to have the others view one’s own site. It is a sort of advertising or site promotion that is really inexpensive. One can actually start in it without spending for membership fees.

The initial reason in surfing other sites within a traffic exchange program could be the basic one. However, as time goes by there are other benefits one can get from it aside from generating traffic to a site.

1. Having downlines. Once a downline signs up, the chance to communicate with him or her is open. A relationship must be developed to gain trust, and this downline can also be included in the list of prospects. It is not for promoting products but at least to start building a list, which is helpful in online business.

There are traffic exchanges that allocate downlines when a certain credit for viewing sites within the program is reached. There are others that offer a number of downlines at a minimal cost. Aside from getting credits, the contact details of these downlines are good to be included in the list.

2. Watch out for some sites offering a small amount as a payment just for viewing them. The usual offer for this starts with 1 cent but it makes a lot of sense if the individual is really a power surfer. These bonuses can be accumulated to purchase credits or banner and text link ads at sometime; or just be requested as a payout.

3. Check on ad clicks. There are advertisements within traffic exchanges that give reward just for clicking advertisements and staying on the page for a few seconds. Increase in credits is a usual reward. This may not be a usual offer but being keen on these would be great.

4. Keep an eye on some offers to receive emails that have links to ads. The links in the email directs to an advertisement and once on the page, staying there for a few seconds gives a corresponding number of credits.

5. Use the credits earned. Make sure that the credits accumulated are assigned to a site, a text link, or a banner ad that must be promoted. This is the main reason in joining traffic exchange.

6. Surf regularly to increase activity points. There are traffic exchanges that give activity points as a reward to regular surfers or for joining forums, and newsletters. One reason for this is to gain more credit percentage in viewing sites.

7. Continuously drive traffic to a site. Always spend time surfing to have a stream of traffic flowing to the site. It is the initial reason for joining traffic exchange and it must always be kept in mind aside from the other possible benefits it can offer.

Knowing these further benefits aside from the basic reason for being a part of a traffic exchange makes surfing more exciting. Watching out for offers adds to the urge to browse more often to take part of the onetime offers within the program.

AdWords Account Suspended - SEO Traffic Spider

by: SEO Traffic Spider

In the last couple of days many Google AdWords accounts have been suspended. Most of the AdWords customers are wondering as to why their accounts are suspended. All that the Google’s AdWords customer receives is an email from the Google AdWords Team stating that your account has been suspended and your advertisements will not run in Google. The reason being non compliance with Google’s terms of service and advertising policies. Have you received one such email from the Google’s Team?

These accounts that are suspended are mostly from customers who are either new to AdWords or have outsourced their AdWords Optimization to third parties to do so.

The problem faced in such situations creates a bad experience for the AdWords customers and an additional burden to Google AdWords reviewers. However, who is responsible for such things. Let’s take a closer look at each of these 2 cases and understand what happens and how problems can be prevented.

Many customers who are new to AdWords are unaware of Google’s Policies and Terms and Conditions that they need to adhere to while setting up their accounts. Google’s Help Center does provide all the necessary information for the new customers but many of them ignore it and just get started right away. They start with the AdWords account creation by creating the new campaigns, ad groups, and stuffing a huge list of keywords. The next thing that happens is a good amount of money is spent as a daily budget and then one fine day one is shocked with an email that their account is suspended.

On the other hand, many customers who want to use AdWords and do not know how to use it outsource it to third party providers. These providers are contacted through any project bidding site. There these customers post their requirements and set a budget that they think they can afford. Many of the providers bid on those projects. Some providers bid as low as $50 for a project that is worth $500. Looking at the affordable price many customers award these AdWords projects to these providers. End result, in most cases dissatisfaction!

After a few days the AdWords customer gets very disappointed and posts a negative remark against the provider in the project bidding system. And then after a few days their account also gets suspended.

So what would be the solution to prevent such situations from occurring? The solution lies in searching for a good provider who has the necessary credentials for optimizing an AdWords account.

1. Ask your provider if they are GAP certified? GAP stands for Google AdWords Professional. This certification is only awarded when a person writes an online exam and is well versed with the Google Policies and Terms and Conditions?

2. Find out if your provider has any hands on experience in optimizing Google AdWords accounts?

3. For how long has your provider been optimizing Google AdWords accounts?

4. Has your provider hired any staff from Google?

5. How will they go about optimizing the Google AdWords account?

6. Most important of all is whether the provider offers to take a look at your account to understand what needs to be optimized or just jumps into the project to earn money regardless of the fact that the account needs an initial diagnosis and study.

You may also come across instances where your account is permanently suspended and even if you try opening a new account with different information, you are likely to get suspended again. The reason being Google having a well built out system to track the advertiser through various means.

So, in this scenario you will not be able to use Google paid advertising which could have got you that instant traffic and conversions. But don’t let this disappoint you. You still stand a good chance to advertise on Google – but this time it’s not AdWords but through organic search. Yes, this is one area where you can promote your website through SEO (search engine optimization) and show on top of the search results of Google.

There are unlimited opportunities waiting for you and it is up to you to decide if you want to cry over lost AdWords opportunity or to venture out for more opportunities using SEO and hitting on top of the search engines.

Most of us will always like to make the optimum use of our hard-earned money. But what is the use if you can’t reap the benefits of your investment. In most cases, low priced services do not offer the best quality. They are low priced because the quality is compromised. Hire the right person and pay the right price for your Google AdWords optimization and prevent your account from being suspended or if you are unable to advertise through AdWords, then have the best SEO Company to promote your website and rank you on top in the search engines.

The choice is now in your hands!

The Key to Getting Your E-mail Opened

by: Danko Gulsoy

If you are like many companies out there, you are using direct e-mail advertisements to give possible consumers a chance to check out what you have to offer and learn a little bit about your company. If you are also like most of those companies, you are having a constant struggle trying to get said consumers to even give your messages a chance. The subject line is the first thing that the consumer will see so it is obvious why this would be the most important and why it is key to the sale.

The first thing you should know about a subject line is that it needs to read like you would speak to a customer. If you have a North Carolina web design firm and your e-mail reads, “ACT NOW WEB DESIGN AT NEW LOW PRICE” nobody is going to be interested in what you have to say. The more your e-mails appear to be from family, friends, or colleagues, the more likely the consumer is to open it.

After making the subject line seem natural the next most important thing is personalizing it. When a consumer sees their name, they automatically react differently than normal. This is also true with other information such as: their city, occupation, interests, and anything else you have as a resource.

Another important thing to think about is to keep it simple. A short sentence is almost always enough information to get your point across. Studies show that the more creative subject lines read like advertisements to consumers and they simply do not get any attention. It is almost always the more “boring” subject lines that attract people. Phrases like “[COMPANYNAME] Sales & Marketing Newsletter”, or “Website news - Issue 3” were on the top of the most clicked list while phrases such as “Last Minute Gift - We Have The Answer”, or “[COMPANYNAME] Holiday Sales Event” were at the bottom of the list.

To summarize: keep your subject line natural, keep your subject line personal, and keep your subject line simple. This will attract the customer initially and keep them interested after they do open the e-mail. Also, do not forget to make the body of the e-mail correspond with the subject line… it seems simple enough but there are many companies out there with very attractive subject lines that get wasted when a consumer clicks it only to feel tricked.

If you need help designing or writing an effective email campaign, you’re in the right place. Codank offers award-winning talent and results-driven strategy. Call us today to get your project started.

How To Avoid Get Rich Scams

by: Vivienne Moore

Having an online business that fits in with your lifestyle is becoming more popular as it allows you to work at home.

How do you learn about business opportunities, work from home options. A starting point and knowing what to look for can be difficult when evaluating the business marketing,work at home,online business opportunities, affiliate marketing.

How much time does it take researching and evaluating the pros and cons of the different and sometimes complex possibilities and determining whether some business opportunities, work from home are a scam or have real potential to set you up in a home business that earns real money in the long run.

There are thousands and thousands of business opportunities, work from home, affiliate marketing. online business opportunities,internet marketing marketing their sites with the marketing jargon with terms like optimization automated marketing turnkey business etc etc.

Evaluating the many business opportunities, internet marketing and work at home can be stressful it all can be so foreign to you with all the new terminology used on the internet. What do they really mean and where is the proof.

Some of these sites make you feel an idiot with the complex terminology and 10,000 word essays of their business opportunity. By the time you get to the end of the page you're totally bemused and disinterested. Another way of referral is using the email to tempt you with the wonderful business opportunity which leads to information overload.

So how do you wade through all these business opportunities on the internet and choose the best program. Start with a good evaluation criteria before embarking on finding the optimal online business opportunity or work at home. It is also important to have systematic approach to the evaluation process.

Book marking sites that you find interesting into different folders before your start an in depth evaluation, but be careful not to bookmark to many websites as this may be counter productive to the evaluation process. Here is some simple but effective evaluation criteria that you can use to determine the program best suited to your needs

1. Website presentation needs to be simple and professional in appearance that includes relevant and up to date information. I wouldn't be personally recommending the very intrusive websites with a lot of gadgets and gizmos. When these sites start flashing all their bling it makes me think that the product is poor and needs a lot of bling to distract you and often slows the page loading.

2. High quality product or service that is unique with a good overall value. An informational product should be concise with relevant up to date information and easy to understand. A good understanding of what the product or online business is about and the benefit of the product or work at home opportunity is important. The benefits of the product or online business need to be clearly stated before involving yourself or purchasing a product.

3. The effectiveness and relevance of the product or online business opportunity is paramount to being successful with any online business opportunity or work at home. Outdated and tedious complex formulas, techniques or information equates to good money wasted with no returns. The online business or product should have a simple systematic approach for implementing the work at home opportunity.

4. Customer service or lack of it can make or break an online business. If the customer service is excellent the customers are more likely to return and recommend your product or services to others. Never underestimate the power of word of mouth has on any business. A quick relevant response to your enquiry or concerns entails good customer service. Most online businesses use a ticketing service where you submit your concerns. An acknowledgment of your ticket submission is sent automatically with a response withing 48 hrs. This system should be available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

5. Is the product or online business opportunity user friendly? Simple explanations and easy to use strategies should be part a good product or work at home business. The customers or potential business owners should find it easy to implement the strategies given to produce an income online with their product or work at home opportunity. Instructions that are more like essays only complicate the learning process and navigating through complex tools will only frustrate the users and lead to customer dissatisfaction.

It is important to remember that you can find a legitimate work at home ,online business but you do have to thoroughly research the product, service or online business before you commit yourself and your money to it. Sticking to your research guidelines will help to avoid the scams and find the most suitable work at home, online business for you.

Product Creation Through Public Information

by: David Hale

Have you ever surfed a government web site? Have you ever heard of Project Gutenburg? Both of these sources are treasure troves of free information to assist you in your product creation. Most information on U.S. government websites cannot receive a copyright and thus is free to be re-purposed and published by you.

Now, this is not to say you should simply slap a cover page on it and call it your own, but think of ways in which you can package information from different government websites into an in demand information product. How about collecting information on government grants for small business owners and marketing that as an information product?

No one will buy it you think? Have you seen Andrew Lesko on TV selling his book on Free Government Money? Where do you think that information came from?

Project Gutenberg is another great source of open source information. Anything listed on the site is so old that it cannot receive a copyright. Many Walt Disney movies are theatrical adaptations to open source information.

Looking through the list of titles one will be amazed at what is listed. You will find something that will make the light bulb go off in your head and you will start thinking of all of how you can use the information in your product creation efforts. Information seekers today are looking for the most concise information in a one-stop product. That is to say, if you were to collect information for these sources that is targeted at a specific in demand niche, you will have a very sellable product.

People today are time conscious and do not want to spend hours on end searching hundreds of web sites for the information they are seeking. If they were to find the targeted information in one product, they will buy it.

Many of the big name Internet marketers today got their start on developing products from public domain information. They are now multi-millionaires.

If they can do it, why can't you?

Here's another possible source of products...

Have you ever written a research paper for school? Whether it was for High School or college, the report can easily be edited into a sellable product. As long as you have a 10+ page report, you are good to go.

People today are in search of very specific content on niche areas. If you believe you are the first person to think of writing a research report on your subject, just take a look at the reference page in your report and that should convince you otherwise.

Simply editing the words you used to be more conversational rather than academic will do the trick. Additionally, you will want to remove any reference citations you may have written into the report.

Your 10 page research paper can now be 10 articles of one page each, one 10 page report, or two 5 page reports. How about recording it? Most personal computers today have a basic recording software included in them. All that is then needed is a quality microphone and you can record an audio product.

How about conducting a presentation on your research topic? Creating a simple Powerpoint presentation is relatively simple to do. If you paper is on a topic that is in demand, there are hundreds if not thousands of people who will not only buy your report, but also the recording and presentation. The most up to date version of Powerpoint allows you to integrate recordings onto your presentation. If you own Camtasia, this can also be used to record voice to your presentation.

So, how simple is that? If kids today are told that they can turn their reports that they hate to write into cash, just imagine how passionate they will become about learning and writing, not to mention becoming an Internet information product creator.

Using Traffic Exchanges Effectively

by: William J Thomas

As the Internet continues to evolve, Internet Marketers must also adapt to new methods of advertising brought about by new techologies and the applications that they allow. When I first started marketing on the Internet, most marketers were using the same basic marketing tools consisting of Safelists, Submitters, Hit Exchanges, etc. Nowadays, savvy Internet Marketers rely much less on those "stone age" marketing tools and instead make use of marketing strategies including video with sites like YouTube, and also make wide use of social neworking sites such as MySpace and Facebook.

While Social Networking has now become the preferred method of doing business for many, some of these new concepts can be so crowded with people using them that although effective at the core, they may not be as effective to the individual because of many factors involved. To use a mechanical concept, the new concepts are brilliant, but there are simply too many moving parts for the new marketer, and there are too many people doing the exact same thing which dilutes it's power beyond what the old school techniques brought. If you think about it, since the premise is the same, you could still effectively use some of the tried and true traffic generating methods such as traffic exchanges to bring in traffic, and in fact many people are starting to realize the power in incorporating these concepts back into their marketing plan because they bring a good mix of old and new school concepts. In the world of internet marketing, traffic is your life blood, so you should try to use any potential traffic generating resource at your disposal, regardless if it is something everyone is using or not. The bottom line is that your barometer should be results, not popularity of the tool.

With that said, while using traffic exchanges can be an effective means of generating traffic for your site if used correctly, there are things you need to be aware of before embarking into this concept. The first thing to keep in mind is that this concept banks on web browser traffic, so the vehicle of this concept is the browser itself. If you want to make sure you are putting forth the most effective and efficient effort, you will need a good browser to use, one that won't crash or allow viral activity to enter your computer. Unfortunately, the viruses today are much more insidious, and you can easily contract one just by simply loading the wrong page. For the most part the Microsoft browser internet explorer is not very secure and is not coded very well where security is concerned. The Mozilla FireFox browser however is not often attacked by these sites and is light years ahead of the IE browser in security features. In order to make the best use of Traffic exchanges, your computer needs to be running efficiently, and that's why you should be using the latest version of Mozilla's Firefox for browsing.

You also want to make sure in conjunction with this system that your computers antivirus program is also set up with the latest update to make sure your protected from viruses. This is not just a precaution you should make due to the traffic exchanges or internet marketing, it's something you should be well aware of always because again, today's internet is higher tech, but so is the web page security problems. Even FireFox can contract certain website virus scripts, so with both armed your better off. There are some great AVP's that are absolutely free and incredibly powerful. One I use is called Avast, which is free for home users and it catches just about any internet page script that tries to infect your computer. The best thing to do is to set your browser history to 0 days also to protect your computer as many of these viral pages enter through the browser cache folder (temp folder where pages are stored).

The Mozilla FireFox browser is also best set up for traffic exchanges due to some great features and plug-in capabilities. FireFox allows you to set up groups of traffic exchanges that can be set up and configured with a simple click of a button. Setting up several groups extends your surfing power thus your ability to dynamically boost your traffic generation power. In this concept the name of the game is brows-ability, the more you browse the more traffic you can create for your site. Using this concept, you can load multiple pages by using a separate tab for each. You will never have to wait for timers to wind down on certain pages which could take up to 30 seconds a page. The beauty of this system is it doesn't matter if you physically are looking at the page, it just has to be loaded on your computer and technically it is.

Lastly, to get the best out of your traffic exchanges you should be using a broadband internet connection. Having a fast connection is essential and allows multiple pages to load faster. Since the page has to be loaded for a certain amount of time and the timer starts when it is loaded, it would be in your best interests to make sure it loads fast. Keep your computer defragged, your internet cache empty, and your internet connection fast. It may also be a good idea to have plenty of memory on your computer. Your computer is part of the equation and should be a decent speed with a decent amount of memory to handle all the browsing activity at once.Your best bet is to take some time and read up on the traffic exchange concept, and really get to know how it all works. The best place to do this is in a traffic exchange forum where you can ask other users questions and read how others found success. People these days love to talk and help one another out, so it is actually a better time to get into this concept than it used to be for many reasons. Be creative, create your own special custom pages, don't put out the same thing everyone else is, remember others will look at your pages if you have something fresh and exciting to look at!
