There Are Many Reasons Car Rentals Offer Cheap Rental Cars and You Should Be Aware of Such Reasons

The most obvious reason why you can get a cheap car rental is when the renting outfit is giving vacation discounts on certain months or seasons of the year. This is a matter of routine that they have to do to remain competitive in their market. Although vacation times are the times when people love to go on holiday trips, they will usually rent from companies with discounted rates.

Other companies apply discounts to their prices for certain special and tourist-attractive destinations. These discounts are seasonal such as if you were to attend the Mardi Gras in New Orleans. These types of discounts you have to avail of early on, perhaps a few weeks before the festivities start. The reason is that there will most often be a last-minute rush to the site just before the fun begins and at that time and usually all promos and packages are suspended. This is perhaps due to the fact that the rental companies may run out of their own vehicles to rent out and will have to borrow from those who have any available and leave off on giving discounts for the borrowed cars.

Alternatively, other discounts are given for the sake of boosting their rentals during the slower months of the year or for destinations that are not very popular.

What is obvious is that you shouldn’t have a difficult time getting a cheap rental car for your outing because car rentals are dying to give you discounts just to keep the money rolling in. They even furnish large companies with discount cards which can be distributed to the employees. So you better check with management, if you are working in a big establishment, about cheap rental car discounts from the better known rental companies.

Because the condition of the car you are renting is determined to a great degree by the age of the car itself, a regular renter should know how to determine the age of the car by looking at its plate number. The formula for doing this is available on the internet and it may be different from one country to another and even from one state to the next. So when you research for ‘how to tell the car’s age from the number’ you should select the rules for the locality you are in.

You should be aware that there are also cheap rental car scams. In this situation you may be getting a car which is poorly conditioned or just plain too old to be road-worthy. Besides the car’s age, a look at the mileage indicator of the car will tell you how much use the motor of that car has seen. Along the same line of good car condition, you should be aware that although you can get cheap rental cars at smaller rental outfits if you need to use it for a long time, there is a catch to this. Smaller outfits will not have that many personnel and if you were expecting them to provide back up for you during an emergency, you may get an unpleasant surprise when you find you have to dish out your own money to have the rented car repaired.

Want a Sweet Deal? Favorite Websites For Fashion Bargains

A lot of people ask me where I get the clothes I’m wearing and they’re always surprised when I say where I got them and how much the item cost. Typical reactions include disbelief and jealousy, especially when I’ve spent less than $20 on a pair of shoes identical to an $80 pair someone else owns.

when I say where I got them and how much the item cost. Typical reactions include disbelief and jealousy, especially when I’ve spent less than $20 on a pair of shoes identical to an $80 pair someone else owns.

How do you find your own sweet deals and which online shopping destinations will give you the most bang for your buck?

Here are a few of my favorite sites:

Forever 21 has incredible selection and style and the prices are outrageous, especially if you do a bit of digging. I’ve unearthed fabulous dresses for less than $20 and great costume jewelry pieces for around $5. The shipping from the site is painless and quick and they have easy return policies should something not fit.

Here are my tips for shopping online at Forever 21:

Visit the store before you shop the website so you know what fits you and what you’re looking for. Often, the actual clothing looks different in person than it does on their website, especially in the dress length area. Some “dresses” Forever 21 sells are more tunic-lengthed, meaning you’d have to wear them as shirts or with leggings in order to make them street-appropriate.

Don’t expect pristine quality. Forever 21 keeps their prices low by mass-producing huge quantities of clothing that aren’t meticulously made. Don’t expect your clothing to hold up for years-or sometimes weeks-on end.

Beware of dresses or shirts you need to zip. Forever 21 has fairly cheap zippers that often break.

If in doubt, go up a size. Their clothing runs tiny-truly tiny. If you have a wide rib-cage, like I do, you may need to go up two sizes if something is really fitted around that area.

Urban Outfitters is a true fashionista’s paradise. Chock full of interesting bohemian pieces, you can find some great clothing for less than $50. Often Urban also carries more expensive lines (upwards of $200), so make sure you don’t fall in love with something before checking the price.

Some things to buy from Urban:

Accessories are always a great bet. They have tons of belts, handbags, scarves, etc. Their shoe selection is also enviable. Check out their flats and sandals, especially now. They have lots of cute new things.

When cold weather is once again upon us, Urban carries a wide-range of outerwear which is all pretty affordable and cute, without being cutesy.

Urban always carries Converse All-Star sneakers in hard-to-find colors and patterns. Check the men’s shoe section for more.

Cutesygirl.com has shoes for unbelievable prices. Truly unbelievable. I tell people I got boots or heels for $12 and they don’t believe me until I show them the webpage.

The thing about Cutesygirl.com is that they mix some really awful, ugly shoes in with adorable and stylish ones. You’re going to have to be willing to put in some search time.

The quality is fairly good, about what you’d expect from Target or Payless shoes. Not great, but they’ll do. Some of the brands (like Steve Madden) that Cutesygirl.com has are obviously better quality than others. Just be choosy and you’ll be okay.

Watch for these styles from Cutesygirl.com:

Flats or pumps are always a good pick. Search by “Price- Low to High” to find the best deals. If you see something you like and they have your size, snatch it up quick. The cheaper shoes go fast, and they often run out of the most popular sizes quickly, leaving only 6’s to be had.

There are some great boot offerings from Cutesygirl.com, but once again, search carefully. Avoid stiletto, pointy-toed boots at all cost. You can get those almost anywhere now, but they really aren’t tremendously popular anyway. Don’t fall into the trap of buying something just because it’s cheap: there are lots of inexpensive shoes on Cutesygirl, but don’t sacrifice style just because something is $10.

Economic Conditions Have Turned Off The Light

Due to current economic conditions the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off…

I saw this posted at the end of an email I received today. I know it was meant to be funny, and I did laugh when I first read it. Then I couldn’t get the impact of the statement out of my head. It kept repeating like a song that gets stuck in your head.

I want to believe the glass is half full. As a person trying to live in the real world and on the internet, the very thought that there is no longer any light at the end of the tunnel is devastating.

Fortunately I surround myself with fantastic people who always believe in a better tomorrow. Small business entrepreneurs, they come from all walks of life and they all believe in the light.

One guy buys distressed homes in the nicer blue-collar parts in town, doing most of the contractor type work himself he fixes them up. A new coat of paint, kitchen floor and clean the carpet so he can make them available for rent at affordable rates. Investing his future in the housing market in these economic conditions is a very risky and long-term investment. But he believes the light at the end of the tunnel is on.

Another couple of business owners started their own niche bar and club, party style, tour business. They work to bring paying customers to not only the larger clubs in Las Vegas, but the smaller locals style mom and pop bars around town.

They lead by example. Not only do they have fun making money while having a rolling party, but they are actively bringing the stimulus through the doors the local businesses need.

And another guy, no longer working at a local Vegas club decided to build an online business he could pass to his son after his college graduation. I’m assuming that he’s going to need a good hearty income to pay off his college loans.

He chose the niche market of sports clothing. He’s not trying to run Nike out of business or take jobs away from Big-5 Sporting or even Wal-Mart. But he does believe that even in these economic times, if you have a dream your willing to combine it with hard work there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.

By surrounding myself with people who still believe in a brighter future. The people who will never except that economic conditions are so bad its time to turn the light off.

I can change that song in my head, change it to a song I learned as a child.

And with the current economic conditions, it’s needed more today than ever.

This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine…

How to Safely Remove Paint Transfer From a Vehicle Without Scratching

  3. 5 Gallon Bucket
  4. Automotive Washing Soap
  5. Automotive Washing Brush
  6. Water Blade
  7. Drying Towels
  8. Automotive Clay Bar
  9. Automotive Clay Bar Lubricant

STEP #6: After the majority of the water from your vehicle has been removed with your water blade, use your drying towel to completely dry the exterior of your vehicle, paying close attention to seems and joints where water collects. NOTE: not completely drying your vehicle to hinder the following processes.

STEP #7: After your vehicle has been completely dried, spray the Automotive Clay Bar lubricant generously over the paint transfer area. Immediately after apply the lubricant gently take the automotive detailing clay and gently, using a back and forth motion paying close attention not to apply any undue pressure, rub the clay onto the paint. The automotive detailing clay removes any foreign particles that may have bonded to your paint. These particles can cause scratches and swirl marks during the compounding, polishing and waxing process if not removed. After you have completed the clay bar process use your microfiber to wipe the excess lubricant from the area.

STEP #8: Apply a small amount of automotive cutting compound to your compound pad and place onto the paint transfer area. Gently cover the entire paint transfer area with the cutting compound. After you have covered the paint transfer with cutting compound begin to make quick, circular motion with the cutting pad applying a generous amount of pressure. After the cutting compound has become semi translucent, buff off with your microfiber towel. NOTE: This process may need to be repeated if the paint transfer is still present.

STEP #9: Once the paint transfer has been removed apply a small amount of automotive detailing polish to your polish pad and with tight, circular motions apply to the compounded area until you can longer see the polish. Once you can longer see the polish buff the area with your microfiber towel.

STEP #10: After the automotive detail polish has been buffed clean, apply your wax to your wax pad and in tight, circular motions apply wax to the compounded and polished area. Once the wax has been applied and has turned to a white haze, buff the area with your microfiber pad until all the excess wax has been buffed clear.

NOTE: Generally during a professional detail the entire vehicle will have the automotive detail clay process applied to the vehicle as well as the waxing process.

Three SEO Strategies That High Ranking Websites Always Follow

Great people do not do different things. They do the same things differently. Well, this phrase is equally applicable to create websites as well. The basics of search engine optimization and social media integration are the same for everybody. The attitude and approach adopted by the webmasters makes all the difference. Let us look at some important differences between popular websites and those websites that fail to make an impression on search engines.

Always Changing, Improving And Evolving

Search engine optimization is a frustrating task primarily because it is always changing. In the beginning, stuffing the webpage with keywords was enough to improve your rankings. Then, Google started penalizing keyword spam and created the distinction between White Hat and other SEO techniques. The latest update by Google penalizes poor quality content. Judging the quality of content of your site through an algorithm may sound impossible. However, Google is making use of algorithms to weed out those websites that offer rehashed content without offering anything new.

Great sites never relax as far as search engine opposition is concerned. They never conclude that they have identified the golden formula and that they need not bother about SEO ever again. They are eager to identify newer solutions and want to find out how such solutions can help them improve rankings. If you want a one-time ticket to online popularity, then you will have to face many disappointing failures. Remaining popular on the Internet requires constant adaptation.

Search Engines Are Secondary. People Come First

This may sound sacrilegious to some SEO experts. To cater to people without bothering about search engines can lead to disastrous consequences. What is the point of setting up a website with high quality content if surfers cannot find it? Well, great websites believe that it is impossible to suppress good content online. If your content is good, then you will automatically become popular even if you are not focusing on search engine optimization.

Of course, this does not mean you should completely ignore optimization. However, your readers and viewers should be preferred over stats about your traffic. Keep your readers happy and they will spread word about your website without being asked to do so. Getting 100,000 web surfers to talk about your website is a lot simpler if you simply provide high-quality content.

Instead of spending a lot of money on expensive SEO strategists, you can adopt this simple approach and extract more value out of your investment.

Never Be In A Hurry For Results

Despite the release of panda and penguin updates by Google, it is possible to manipulate search engines and improve your rankings. However, such a short-term approach is only going to lead to complications. For starters, you can never be certain that your popularity is sustainable. If you focus on the long-term, then you will automatically make use of White Hat SEO techniques that focus on adding value at all times.

Make sure you follow these strategies. The best option is to employ an SEO expert who understands the importance of such an approach. This will help you focus on offering better quality products and services to your customers without worrying about the popularity of your website.

Cheap Car Insurance and Car Safety – Drink-Driving

The dangers of drink-driving, sometimes referred to as dui or dwi, have become much more obvious in recent times, as well as being socially unacceptable, have become a major concern for motorists and safety campaigners and taken much more seriously by lawmakers and law enforcers.

The seriousness with which courts regard any form of drink-driving is reflected in the severity of potential sentences and the consequences that any form of drink-driving may have on the motorist, passengers and anyone potentially involved in any accident.

The practical side of being caught and convicted to any type of drink driving can result in any or all of the following consequences. There is certainly a likelihood or possibility of being sent to jail. This may be a relatively short time and act, or be meant to act, as a real deterrent to doing it again in the future.

This is normally the case if there is no one else involved and has been no real damage done to any third party. The jail sentence will normally reflect an intent to send a message to the person involved. If the drink-driving has resulted in an accident or damages of a serious nature either to an individual or their property or loss of life, then the jail term may be significantly longer.

If the driver involved has already been convicted of a drink-driving offence in the past, then the courts will take an even harsher view and significantly increase, or the likelihood is they will significantly increase the jail term involved. The motorist involved will almost certainly lose the use of their licence for a significant period of time, quite often up to several years. This has a major impact on their lives, and the lives of their family and people who may be dependent on them having a car.

There is likely to be a significant fine as well, the amount will be dependent on the age of the driver as well as any damage that the driver may have caused. This fine will not be covered under the motorists car insurance policy and will need to be paid by them themselves out of their own pocket. In addition, when they do eventually get their licence back their insurance rates will rocket and they will have to pay a substantial loading on their car insurance policy for a long time afterwards.

In addition to the possibility of being sent to prison, there is also a significant chance that the driver will be sent on some type of alcohol safety awareness program. A court may decide to send the driver to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and can potentially order a number of psychiatric tests if they feel that the mental state the driver is sufficiently unstable to warrant it.

Drink-driving levels are something that are a bit of an anachronism in that they are set by lawmakers as being a top threshold at which it is deemed safe to drive having drunk a small amount of alcohol. In truth the only safe amount of alcohol is no alcohol. Many people accidentally drink slightly more than they should do and often are not aware that they are over what is a relatively low limit when they decide to drive a car. It is a much safer approach to this issue either not drink at all if you’re driving, or if you do decide to drink either get someone else to drive you or to use a taxi or a minicab.

Also bear in mind that if you are involved in an accident of any sort, whether it is your fault or not if you have an excess level of alcohol in your bloodstream, then the police and authorities will prosecute and can convict you irrespective of who was at fault or to blame for any accident.

Relaxing Your Way to a New Smile

In the old days, the idea of being able to relax in a dentist’s office is preposterous and laughable. Who would be able to stay calm amidst the noise of the drills and children crying their heads off and coming out with swollen cheeks? It’s all enough to make you swear off dentists as long as you live.

That was how people felt about it until the advent of dental spas. Dental spas are defined as establishments or facilities whose dental programs are run by a licensed oral health care provider, who might also be referred to as a dentist or independent dental hygienist. The services one can expect from these facilities are an integration of traditional dental and spa treatments, such as massage therapy, skin care and body treatments.

In line with this, a new field of dentistry referred to as “Spa Dentistry” is defined as the practice of methods and services not normally associated with dental care like facials, paraffin wax hand treatments, aromatherapy, reflexology, micro-dermabrasion, Botox and other treatments meant to rejuvenate and pamper. The term “dental spa” was coined by the media as a means of reference to this new dental practice of having patients relax before going in for any dental treatment.

Dental spas came about to address most people’s anxiety about going to the dentist’s office for their bi-annual check-ups or for any treatment needed. Approximately 8 out of 10 people have been found to prefer avoiding essential dental care just because they are afraid of going to the dentist’s office, something that mustn’t be the case. While this may seem like something new, the concept of dental spas actually goes back to the time of the ancient Greeks and Chinese who used certain methods to keep a person suffering from a toothache relaxed. The first recorded dental spa was during the 18th century in Bath, England when a woman known only as Miss Curris made her dental patients relax by offering them massages, as well as skin and body care before treating them.

Dental spas are perhaps the best thing to happen to people who have an irrational fear of dentists. They finally have a reason to muster up the courage to go for their important check-ups without quaking in their boots. In addition to having a spa-like atmosphere, which makes patients think and feel that they are anywhere but at a dentist’s office, it is the prospect of being able to avail of other salon services that encourage patients to forego their fear. Who can resist a relaxing manicure while undergoing root canals?

Dental spas are also recommended for patients with heart conditions and anxiety disorders. Not only are they able to relax, but the conditions also ensure their safety, making the dentists’ job easier. It is never easy to deal with unhappy and nervous patients who squirm in their chairs and complain loudly even before the instruments touch their teeth. For difficult to relax patients, dental spas offer sedation dentistry, which involves the use of anti-anxiety medications or laughing gas (nitrous oxide).

So if you’re one of those who equate a visit to the dentist’s office to a date with Godzilla, you now have a great reason to forget about your fears – just relax and leave everything in the hands of the experts and you’ll soon wonder what you were afraid of to begin with.

Internet Marketing Training For Home Based Business Owners

How To Set Up and Start Operating a Home Based Business

I remember myself anticipating to having my first website ready when I first started, as if when I would have it ready, my business would become internationally known at a blink of an eye! Being Enthusiastic is essential… Another thing that is essential though, is to try to keep your feet on the ground. Becoming known on the internet is a Step By Step process that you have to go through very carefully and with consistency. The more focused and consistent you are from the instant you start, the sooner you will achieve your business goals, by accordingly following your business plan! Most of All: Do Not Panic!!

1) Establishing Your Target Market:

This is probably the most important thing you can do when getting your business started. You have to do your research on Who Your Customers Are before you get into any type of marketing and advertising. Especially with Pay Per Click advertising e.g., on Google AdWords you have to know what are the right keywords for your business in order to attract the right people to you, that will ask exactly for what you have to offer. Marketing to the wrong set of keywords will kill your business, produce a substandard leads. On the other hand, marketing to the right set of keywords or the right target market will explode your business.

2) Find A Good Domain Name And Hosting Company:

This is the second very important part of your business foundation. Having a good domain name that relates directly to your offering business opportunity and a hosting company that has reliable customer service daily 24/7, Live Support to make sure your website – blog is up and running effectively.

3) Decide What Method You Will Use For Your Promotion Plan:

Squeeze Pages or Branding Site? After you have established your target market, and set up a domain and a hosting account for your website, you will need to decide what type of Marketing Site you will use. Squeeze pages and branding sites are different, but both are necessary tools for the internet marketer. As with any other topic, you will get different opinions when it comes to Squeeze Pages or Branding sites. I use Branding Sites as I want people to get to know who I am and where I come from before starting any kind of partnership or business deal with them.

Difference between a Squeeze Page and a Branding Site:

A squeeze page is a mini sales page. Squeeze pages are also called opt in pages, splash pages, and landing pages. It’s the first and most important page that you will create and the place where your people will leave their name, email and number, in order to get more information about your business opportunity. Your squeeze page should have a smart eye-catching headline and invoke curiosity. The content of your squeeze page should address to solve a ‘problem’ or fill a ‘void’ of your customers.

Branding sites are designed to brand YOU. Word Press sites are great for branding. Word Press sites have a home page. The home page allows you to provide more information and detail than a squeeze page. As I mentioned earlier the branding site is meant to give your people information; lots of information about you, your product, and your services.

Lay out your branding site with a home page about your product and service. The “about me” tab should be all about you…your story, your background, and your truth.

It is a peoples’ Business and people will connect with you if they like you first and trust you later.

4) Pay Per Click Advertising:

Get Yourself Acquainted with the Forms and The Functionality of Pay per Click Advertising.

What is Pay Per Click?

Pay Per Click Marketing is the fastest way to drive traffic to your web site, that is a fact.

The three big pay per click sites that are recommend are as follows and they are in this order for a reason with Google being at the top.

The three major search engines are Google, Yahoo, and MSN, but Google is the Leader of the market.

Google is the main pay per click marketing search engine.

How Does Pay Per Click Work?

Pay Per Click works by you selecting keywords that are related to your business, product, or service.

1. You choose keywords or long key phrases

2. You bid an amount on those keywords or key phrases to get them seen

3. Google determines which ads to show

So how do you get your ads seen?

1. Write an attractive ad (great copywriting is a key factor in all marketing)

2. Bid the right amount

3. Make your ad relevant to your keywords as well as your website

Google AdWords Program has unlimited free informative tutorials on how to set up and start your PPC campaign. There you will have the choice to target your ads according to language, country, set your own preferred bids on your ads and keywords, and set specific days for your ads to run or pause them anytime you wish.

After you make your keywords research, when you will know what you are doing it won’t be that difficult to get your ads seen throughout the web. To many people rush to get their ads out on Google and do not do the proper research, or work with experienced marketers and coaches.

You can apply the strategies you use for the big search engines like Google,Yahoo and MSN. Googles’ pay per click program is called Ad Words. There is a difference between “paid” search results that appear on the top and right-hand side and “Uncategorized” searches – the search results that appear on the left-hand side of the search page which are free and can make wanders if you manage with good Search Engine Optimization to get your ads there on the first pages of these engines.

5) Article Marketing Advertising:

Article marketing is probably one of our most interesting and cost effective ways to market.

This method requires a process and time to get results and visibility. It is a way for you and your business to become known on the web and be considered as an active part of the Online Marketers Community. What happens when you do article marketing is that people pick up your articles for content on their sites, for content. It’s huge. Your content is spread around virally.

The way this works is you write an article, something of value. Be sure you check out our chapter on outsourcing on next paragraphs, because if you don’t like to write, you can outsource it to experts.

When you write and submit your articles, you are putting in your links on these articles, the articles that you originally produce. These are one-way back links to your site, so when people pick up your articles for content, the Google crawler picks up the links and your site goes up in ranking. That means more visibility for you, more traffic to your site and recognition, traffic and hopefully sales.

The articles you submit should be relevant to the topic of your business. They should pertain to what you are doing and whatever business you are in. In this case your articles should pertain valuable content for your readers to go through concerning Home Business Industry Topics. These could be Internet Marketing Techniques, the advantages of running their own business from home, freedom of time, ‘How-To’ articles which are a very ‘HOT’ plate for the search engines and many more.

Make sure that your articles are around 300-500 word long. You want to be picked up as providing good content about your industry or business. You should have a bio attached to the article. BIO is the only place that you can ‘sell’. It’s the place for you to ‘TAKE’. This is where the link to your website or splash page will be located. The bio should be about you as the author. At the body of t
he article you only ‘GIVE’: Content of Value. The links in your Bio should come back to your website.

Your Bio should include 2-3 sentences pertaining 1) Who you are and what you do, 2) A reason to visit your site after reading your article and 3) A call to action, for them to do so.

Make room in your life to submit at least two articles per week; set aside a specific time or day to make it happen. You have lots of information you can write about in whatever industry you are in. You can do it manually, or you can purchase submission services through Article Submitter Special Software. They have over 1000 places to submit your articles. It is time saving and accelerates the process of distribution and visibility.

6) Video Marketing Activity (HUGE)

Run a Google search on a topic like ‘best home based business opportunities’. Most likely, in addition to articles and websites, there will be several videos that pop up in the search results. Imagine having a dynamic and powerful video that introduces your product, service, and company live with your voice on and researchers landing on your beautiful video instead of being sent to a single and ‘one of the thousands’ splash pages. Google is very attracted to videos and pick them up quickly. It will help your ranking. Video Marketing is a very powerful selling tool as well as the fastest free way to get those ads out there. Use it in order to stay ahead of the competition.Your ultimate goal in marketing is to have your ads not only seen by as many potential customers as possible, but to be in front of as many of your targeted customers as possible.

The way you treat your Video Marketing campaign is the same with how you treat your PPC campaign and your article marketing campaign. You must focus on a specific ‘keyword-driven’ target market. At Step 1 I mentioned the importance of establishing a target market and a core group of keywords. The same keywords will be plugged into the videos when you submit them. Ultimately, everything comes up to your initial development of your target market and core keywords.

As in Article Marketing you can 1) submit your videos manually to limitless video directories for free like You Tube, Yahoo Videos, Google Videos, etc or 2) Submit to as many as possible directories through Video Submitting Software that do massive distribution of your videos with a click of a button.

7) Press Releases Marketing Method (Get Faster and Higher Ranking)

Another way of effective marketing of your website is to write and submit Press Releases. The information in your press release needs to be viable, newsworthy and high value content. Inside your press release, you should have one-way links that bring readers back to your site – your branding site or your squeeze page. The difference between the articles and the Press Releases is that in PR you can place your URL link in the ‘body’ of your content, once every 100 words. Press releases are a great SEO tool that can quickly improve your ranking. There are a lot of sites looking to gather information to build the content on their websites, so if they pick up your press release, and inside your press release you have one-way links back to your site, the search engines will know and act accordingly by rewarding you with higher ranking.

This is a method that requires some time to build a reputation. Give it some time and as long as you do this on a consistent basis, sending out once press releases per month with relevant, high value information, you’ll start seeing increased traffic to your site. Again there is a free PR submission option and a paid one. Again it will be up to your budget flexibility.

8) Social Media Marketing:

Millions of people everyday are viewing, updating, or connecting with others all over the world. These sites are very easy to get set up on, as all you have to do is sign up with your information and you are ready.

As of today the big three that I use consistently for internet marketing are Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and Ecademy.com. There are hundreds more out there and this is a great way to let people know about whom you are what you do, as well as what your product or service is all about. Social Networking Sites are considered as the Hottest Market Place and reports have shown that people search and finally trust opportunities through viral tools, such as all these today’s Hot Marketing Trends.

You must apply the ’90-10%’ Marketing Rule which means, that the 90% of your posts and interactions must be about you socializing, making connections, letting people know you first and only a 10% talking about your business. People don’t like to be sold. Be human and treat like you would like to be treated. It is a Peoples’ Business.

9) Outsourcing Resources:

Every marketing method I mentioned so far, every tool that you are given to use can be outsourced. Evaluate the time that you can give to your business, filter the activities that are most compatible to your character and nature and outsource the rest! Web design building, hosting etc. You cannot outsource everything assuming that your budget is limited; you will have to learn how to do some of them, apply at least 2 of the previous mentioned methods for your business. Article marketing, Social Media Marketing and Pay Per Click advertising is definitely skills that anyone that starts an online business should master for himself and his business’s success.

Take it Step By Step when growing your business and grow your outsourcing at a steady pace. You always have the control of all your marketing activities. You are the leader and the one that will lead you to Success!

Make sure you are on the right track and apply the knowledge you learn, every single piece of it day by day! And of course enjoy yourselves always!

How To Properly Remove A Bumper Sticker and Blend the Paint to Match

No matter what your reasons may be you’ve decided its’ time to remove that old faded bumper sticker from your vehicle. Lucky for you in just a few minutes and with a small amount of effort your car can be bumper sticker free. This process can be repeated for just about any type of adhesive stuck to your vehicle. It can be used to remove inspection stickers from windows, or vinyl lettering/vinyl graphics from the vehicle as well. The most important part is to be very patient and not try to rush through any steps. All of the steps below should be completed in a garage, under a carport or during dawn/dusk to provide as much time as possible before the adhesive remover dries on the car.

What You Will Need:

Razor Blade (Single Sided Square Blade Recommended)

Citrus Based Adhesive Solvent (Goo Gone Automotive Cleaner Recommended)

Automotive Paint Safe Bug Brush (Can be purchased at Walmart, or any auto parts store)

Microfiber Towels

Wax

Compound

Applicators

STEP #1: Take your razor blade and carefully slide the edge of the blade under a corner of the sticker. With the edge of the razor blade under the sticker gently tease up the corner of the sticker.

STEP #2: Grab the freed corner of the sticker and slowly pull the sticker in the direction of the remaining sticker. NOTE: If the sticker becomes too difficult to pull without tearing, apply your citrus based adhesive solvent to the adhesive sticker backing during this step. The solvent will loosen the adhesive, making it easier to remove the sticker. It is recommended to wait at least one minute to allow the solvent to penetrate and break down the adhesive.

STEP #3: Once you have removed the entire sticker, there will still be bumper sticker adhesive left behind. Now apply the citrus based adhesive remover to your automotive paint safe bug brush. Using the bug brush, apply some citrus based adhesive remover to the remaining adhesive on the vehicle in a circular motion. NOTE: This step may will most likely have to be repeated in order to remove all the adhesive from the vehicle. To ensure everything is removed, run your hand across the area once dried. Any remaining sticker glue will create a rough/sticky feeling. If there is still some leftover then repeat step #3. If there is no residue or leftover you may proceed to step #4.

STEP #4: Remove the excess adhesive remover with your microfiber towel.

Note: There will be some slight scuff/mar marks as well as a discoloration of the paint depending on how long the bumper sticker was on the car. This will need to be removed by compounding and polishing the area to smooth out any blemishes and blend the clear coat to match the rest of the bumper.

STEP #5: Now that the bumper sticker has been removed and all adhesive cleaned up it is time to make it look like the rest of the bumper. Follow the steps on how to properly compound and polish a car to remove light swirls and scratches.

STEP#6: Inspect the area where the sticker was to ensure it is satisfactory. Remember to apply a couple coats of wax, since it has been a long time since this portion of the bumper saw any.

Removing a bumper sticker can seem like an insurmountable task, and often people will give up because of the difficulty. With a little patience, the right tools and know how anyone can learn how to properly remove a bumper sticker without any blemishes to the paint.
