For many small to medium sized companies getting their brand and product in front of customers can be a challenge in this highly competitive market. Many businesses are turning to social marketing in order to connect with and gain input from their customers. This is a great resource if used correctly and not overly promotional. Customers want to know that you care about them and that you are able to offer them value beyond just the software or services that you are are selling. So that is why I was intrigued by the new Somoto Toolbar which allows businesses brand their own search tool bar. The beauty behind this is that it is something you can offer free to your customers and it keeps your brand and company top of mind.
Your customers can use the new Somoto toolbar to stay in touch with their friends via Facebook and Twitter while listening to their favorite radio station. They receive status updates about their friends and who is online without having to switch over their favorite site. This then gives your business the ability to subtly have suggestions in the search bar about your latest products or special deals that you are running. It is completely free and is safe to use as it does not contain spyware,adware, and spam free.
For bloggers and small businesses you can use the Somoto toolbar as way to increase search engine traffic and help increase affiliate earnings by some simple adjustments. So when your customer is doing searches they will pass through and see your affiliate offerings towards the top of the page. Can you imagine the power and freedom you can have by just simply giving away a free toolbar to make your customers lives easier and helping your business in the process. It allows your customers to share their toolbar and spread the word so they help you grow your exposure through word of mouth which is still one of the most powerful marketing tools you can have. With their complimentary services you can use their hosting solutions to reduce your server overhead. Use their extensive built in network of distribution partners to grow faster and reach more businesses and customers. Take full advantage of their complimentary landing pages to increase your conversions. So no matter what your goals are the value cannot be beat and should be a consideration in you 2012 marketing plans.

As the economy starts to pick up construction follows. Companies are investing in capital projects and new equipment to help expand their services or build new products. This in turn helps other companies that make heavy equipment and chemical mixing tools because their products are needed through out the process. New projects are a great sign that companies are investing their money which should lead to a better jobs market. The other benefit is that many of the tools needed in new construction are made right here in the US adding to the overall benefit to our economy. Companies have had time to develop new tools over the last year thanks to enhanced technology and development and are now able to sell them in the market thanks to increased demand.

Using naming conventions

Files

Overall

Mojavi’s file naming conventions are very simple, and overall easy to follow. The drivers that are required should be already included withing the PHP 4.0 structure.All files containing classes (including the framework libraries) are suffixed with .class.php

ex: A file containing the Controller class, would be named Controller.class.php

Actions

All actions in Mojavi are of the form [ActionName]Action.class.php

ex: An update action: UpdateAction.class.php

Views

Views are equally as simple as actions. A view is named after it’s action and driver, and suffixed with View_[viewtype]. Actions have the ability to return different views, under different circumstances. There are three standard view types “input”, “success”, and “error”. You may use any other type of your choosing, but these are likely to be the three you will encounter the most.

ex: The success view for the update action: UpdateView_success.class.php

Templates

Template naming is left up to the developer. There are not restrictions on what these can be named, but it is often useful to name them after the view that called them. You also want to make sure that any drivers software that you have on your servers is updated with the latest patches in order to prevent any security loopholes

In the world of SEO ( search engine optimization) one of the key factors that they mention to a successful site in page rank is good quality links from other sites. They talk about avoiding link farms where you list your site and everyone links to one another in an uncontrolled fashion. This could actually hurt your site if someone who has been banned by search engines like Google decides to link to your site. There are other factors to consider when putting together a blog or website to help you generate revenue. One of which is the ability to engage your readers or customers to perform some sort of action such as purchasing your product or subscribing to your feed. Companies like SEO Toronto experts 9th Sphere can help you with this and other SEO questions you may have. They are a full service firm which means they can help from design to implementation.

As a programmer or one who has little knowledge of what programming is all about, you must have come across or heard of words such as PHP and PHP framework. In programming, there are languages used for the various kinds of programming, some of the languages are machine languages while the others are high level languages of which PHP is included. PHP which stands for Hypertext Pre-processor is an open source web scripting language.

On the other hand, PHP framework is seen as a library or a store house that helps to ease the work of a developer during programming. The framework helps the developer by hiding making some details of HTTP protocol hidden or by adding some useful and essential functions. When this happens, the developer is then faced with the opportunity and duty of thinking a level higher than HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol). There different PHP web frameworks used by programmers and fortunately, in this article we will be talking about a particular one called Laravel.

Laravel, a free PHP web framework with free licence was designed and developed by Taylor Otwell, for the purpose of developing web based applications with the design pattern of the MVC (Model view controller). Around March 2015, the web framework was considered as one of the most famous PHP frameworks, jointly with other frameworks such as CodeIgniter, Nette, Symfony2 and Yii2. The PHP web framework during programming is licensed in the MIT’s license terms and the source code of can be hosted on GitHub.

This PHP web framework is also seen as a framework with elegant and expressive syntax. Software developers such as 1099 software ETC believe that development or programming must be something very enjoyable to them, and the creative knowledge and experience to be truly satisfying. The framework in question attempts to remove the pains involved in programming or web application development by helping the developers with some common tasks such as routing, caching, sessions, and authentication.

Laravel existence is intended to make web application development a pleasing and happy process for developers such as 1099 software ETC when designing e-file software, automated payroll software, etc. without giving up or forfeiting application usefulness and efficiency (functionality). One good thing you may be surprised to know about developing process is that when you are happy, you tend to create the best code.

The web framework is accessible almost by anybody who cares (open source or with free license) and also powerful. It aids in the provision of strong and effective tools needed for the development of large and robust web applications. The possession of a firmly combined unit analysis support, an expressive movement system (migration system), and an excellent overturn of control or regulator container provides you to create your choice of web application or the application you have been tasked with.

Reasons why most developers choose laravel are:

  • Easy and clean routing
  • Effective database coating and ORM
  • Simple combination with libraries
  • Fast and operative core that can be lengthy
  • Lively and rising community that can help in providing quick and clear answers to your questions.

Whether to invest in oil and gas or gold

I can’t ever recall anything being as hot as the price for gold is right now. It truly is a remarkable story to see what gold has done over the last couple of years. We might as well bring in the $2,000 chart for this popular metal we know as gold. Don’t think the recent gains has made gold an unattractive thing to buy right now. I think anyone who has an interest to invest in oil and gas stocks should go take advantage of the current prices as they are expected to climb. I am well aware of how much oil and gas stock prices have jumped in recent months, but I don’t think we have seen the biggest jump yet. A lot of old producers are in the process now of trying to reopen and begin the mining process again. This is going to take a lot of time for most of these oil and gas mining companies and they will still be in a real fight to meet and keep up with the soaring demands. I have been keeping a close eye on oil and gold prices as places to diversify my portfolio so let’s hope for a great year.

The soaring gold prices is one of the reasons why I recently got interested in gold panning. In my area of the World, there is a rich and long history of people finding gold in my area. I am hoping to rewrite some modern history with some of my gold finds. I know if I don’t find any soon, I may be forced to buy some Gold Bullion. If you don’t live in an area where gold is deposited naturally into the streams and rivers, you might think about some form of gold investments too. I know investing in Bullion is one of the easiest ways to get in on some of this gold action. I would just like to be able to find some natural gold on my own and help with the world-wide gold numbers in storage or the over all supplies of gold in stock.

Using 3 ring binders for your backups

When you are creating backups of your programming documentation you need to make sure that you have both a digital and hard copy. Most programmers will use 3 ring binders to keep their hard copy and then mark the dates on them to make sure they know which dates and revisions are kept in each one. The other key benefit of keeping a hard copy of your coding work is that should you experience a hard drive failure you will be able to see your work. We have heard horror stories of people losing their work when a hard drive crashes or their computer is infected with a virus. Three ring binders are simple and a very cost effective solution.

That is why resource sites where you can get Multiplication Worksheets to help your child in math are great for kids and parents who are looking to help their children grow and learn. These simple and easy worksheets can be printed out at home and can be used to reinforce and expand the learning of your child at home.

Using payday loans at sunrisefinance.com

Cash advances are one of the most convenient and easiest ways to get the money you need fast. A payday loan can be really helpful when you find yourself in an emergency situation with no money to pay for it. It’s a quick and easy way to get yourself out of a jam. A cash advance is commonly anywhere from $100 dollars to $1000 and are very simple to receive. Some of the basic requirements to get a cash advance (also commonly known as a pay day loan) are: having a job with a monthly income of $1,000, having an email address and a checking account. One of the reason’s it is so convenient and easy is because they don’t perform a credit check. This was one of the reason’s I personally chose to do this, I didn’t want to get a hit on my credit from credit checks.

I did a lot of searching on the internet about payday loans at sunrisefinance.com, reading reviews of other peoples success stories is what really helped me determine whether these alternative cash options were appropriate. Cash advances to come with a fee, so if you can borrow from a family member or a friend first do so, but if you need cash fast and no one or don’t want to ask out of embarrassment then this is a good option for you.

Last month I needed a cash advance desperately to cover an overdraft fee in my bank account. The only reason this happened was because the company that was financing my car accidentally took out two payments and there was only enough in there to cover one payment. Not only that, but had continued to try to take out the payment when there was nothing left in the account. I was not only charged with an over-drafting fee of $40 but a $75 dollar NSF fee 3 times from my bank as well. Which now put me in the hole $265!!! This is so frustrating when it happens, especially because I had made sure that the money was in the account and they somehow managed to screw things up anyway. I called my financing company and they of course blamed it on the bank, they claimed that the money was not in the account the first time and that is why they continued to try to withdraw the money, they basically said that I would have to take it up with the bank themselves. When I called the bank I found out that because I had deposited the cash through the ATM, the bank put a hold on my money to verify the amount. Apparently with my bank, you can only deposit $200 at a time through ATM!!! UGH! You think this information would be stated clearly somewhere but NO, and the worse thing is that they didn’t even help me out! I now had to try to come up with this money.

This is when I turned online to get my cash advance. I am so happy that there are companies like this that make it so easy for people to get money in a quick way. I am still so upset about what happened with my bank. I decided to close my account and go to another bank after that big mess.

In addition to creating brand awareness through social media companies need to also consider company name development for their product in order to capture the interest of their target audience. Having your social networks more readily accessible as you surf and visit blogs can have great advantages for brand managers as well. It is one thing about creating a campaign about your new product and then pushing it out to Facebook for groups to comment on and it is another about putting together a global strategy on branding that profile and offering ways in which the consumer can interact with your brand and your product. You can deploy interactive graphs  that you invite those customers from your social networking  pages to join in the conversation. You can use ArcadiaCharts, interactive JavaScript and GWT charts which run in all browsers without plugins that will enable to you add a graphical display of your content and help improve the visibility of your content. You want to make sure that if you are in the company name development stage that you understand your target audience and how this will play out in the social marketing space. This was put to practice when Ashton Kutcher wanted to have a million followers on Twitter and he challenged CNN to try and beat him. This was not just some thought that happened one day but very well thought out strategy that involved some big name brands that consumers could relate too and then be show how to use Twitter to connect with their friends.

There are three types of Communication in social media:

1) How to Broadcast.

This is where you broadcast a message out to your followers and add value to their life as well as update your followers about new blog posts, podcasts, interesting sites and blogs you have run across, and whatever else you want to broadcast. You can use interactive graphs that will showcase content that will keep your customers coming back.

2) Start the Conversation.

If you have a new company name then getting in front as many people as possible is key to faster brand awareness. This is where you actually hold a back and forth conversation with people on your social sites. It is a 140 character conversation that could go on for a while. We were in a conversation about the various microblogging sites that went on for over three days and involved over 200 updates and the traffic was amazing..

3) Create Collaboration.

This is where more than one person is communicating in one message. It could be two, three, four people that are collaborating on a project that all are part of the message and efforts. You can even reach out to social networks to help in your company naming project and create various social media tools that will allow your potential customers have a hand in developing the name.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

In 2012 the battle for the consumers health care dollar continues to grow. This is evident by the expansion of pharmacies like Walgreens to be where there customers are and provide a service that will enable to have a one stop shop for their health care needs. All pharmacies deal with most major insurers and pharmacy benefit plans in order to help their customers get the medicines prescribed by their local HCP’s. Currently Walgreens and Express Scripts are in a a disagreement about their current contract. This only impacts the patient in the end that has developed a relationship with their local pharmacist and now be forced to find another pharmacy if an agreement cannot be reached. Walgreens has been trying to do everything they can to help their customers in light of this situation like offering a special Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens now through the end of January for those customers impacted.

If you are a Walgreens customer and have Express Scripts as your pharmacy benefit manager then you can help voice your opinion by following Walgreens on Facebook and Walgreens on Twitter. This situation also impacts those customers who are on Tricare which is the prescription plan and health plan for those in the military both active and retired. Voice your opinion and do not let your choices be limited by a need to increase profits.

With the latest block buster drug to go generic this month the pharmaceutical model for R&D is having to make some major shifts. No longer are big revenues from several products going to help fuel innovation and research, rather bitoech drugs are going to be the next big thing.The more specialized a medicine becomes the more costly it becomes as there are not enough in overall sales to help justify the development. There are multiple ways that companies are studying the impact of b cells and other specific genetic cells to create a more targeted approach. This is why finding ways and solutions to bring therapies to market at a faster pace with lower R&D cost will be more sustainable over the long term.
