How to Start an Internet Marketing Business From Home

One of the major plus points of internet marketing is that you can run your business from near enough anywhere. Unless you tell them, no-one needs to know that you’re running your internet marketing business from home.

In fact, you’ll be joining a large force of homepreneurs who run almost any conceivable business from the comfort of their own and use places like coffee shops as their regular office space if they need a meeting or just somewhere else to work.

I’ve seen more than one video that was recorded in a coffee shop and so long as you use a directional microphone or pick a time of day and a secluded area where it’s not too noisy that works fine.

At its most basic, you just need a computer with an internet connection to start an internet marketing business from home.

If your typing skills on a small keyboard are good you may even be able to substitute a mobile phone or a tablet for the computer. I’m sure there are people who do that!

You then need to decide which direction your home based internet marketing business will go.

Start by working out how much time you’ve got available to spend.

That could be an hour first thing in the morning – often better than letting the day’s events over-run the hour you thought you’d spend in the evening and finding that you’ve not done anything towards your business.

Again.

Or it could be longer.

The amount of time you can dedicate to your internet marketing business will partially dictate what you can do.

For instance, if you’re working during the day then it may be difficult or even impossible to post larger items fast enough for them to reach customers without them getting upset. But you could sell smaller items and just drop them in a post box each night which would compete just fine with most other online vendors.

If you enjoy mooching around flea markets and charity shops, you could start an eBay business quite easily that way with minimal stocking cost.

That said, most would-be internet marketers find the option of carrying physical stock is more effort than they’d like.

Another good option for your home based internet marketing business is to create a website.

Child Internet Safety – A Comprehensive Guide for Parents

As a parent, your child is the most precious and loved aspect of your life. Children represent the future of our country and provide us with hope for a positive and productive tomorrow. Unfortunately, children are also considered to be the most vulnerable of all age groups within society. As a result of this fact, we must ensure that we place protecting our children as a top priority. Today, millions of children access the internet on a daily basis. This fascinating form of electronic technology has drastically altered the method in which children interact with and perceive the world. Children of all ages now have access to tools and resources that provide them with various degrees of knowledge and method to express their unique personalities and levels of creativity.

The internet also provides children with the ability to connect to various types of people from all around the world – many of which intend to do harm to children. As a result of this fact, you – as a parent and adult – must make a personal commitment to ensure that measures are taken for child internet safety. In this guide, you will be introduced to several steps that will allow your child to be protected from the dangers of the World Wide Web. By utilizing the comprehensive information contained in this child internet safety guide, you can properly protect your child while allowing them to explore the tools, resources, and advantages that the internet has to offer.

The Potential Dangers

Internet usage provides a wide array of possibilities for children, assists in expanding a child’s horizons, and allows kids to be exposed to various ways of life and different types of people. Unfortunately, as youngsters travel along the information highway, there is a potential that they will be exposed to numerous dangers. While there are many ethically-sound individuals that utilize the World Wide Web, there are also individuals that attempt to sexually exploit individuals under the age of eighteen. Seduction may come in the form of attention, showing signs of affection, and providing children with unique and age-appealing gifts. Individuals that desire to exploit children in a perverse manner are willing to devote large amounts of time and money to succeed in their endeavors.

In some instances, a less-than-prudent adult may take the time to listen to the issues that their victim contacts experience and empathize with those issues. Many know the latest trends among the age groups that they desire to victimize such as music, fashion, hobbies, and interests. These types of predators work to reduce a child’s inhibitions and then introducing sexual-based topics into conversations. In other instances, predators may immediately start expounding in conversations with children that are sexually explicit. As a parent who has a desire in child internet safety, it is imperative that you understand the types of predators online and how they function – this is especially true if your child spends a lot of time using the internet.

Internet Mining Investigation Top 10 (And 4 Is a Must)

Nothing Humble About These Beginnings

When I started in the private investigation business, we had the Internet but not the Internet we all know about and use today. The Internet back then, and back then was about 15 years ago, was primarily the America Online community. Email was starting to replace snail-mail as the communication of choice and rightfully so; immediate communication of letters and attachments, the way we would all do business would be changed forever. Soon after, with the birth of MySpace and Facebook in 2003, so to would change human socialization, forever!

Although MySpace jumped out of the gate quickly, they soon faded away to the “new kid in school”, Facebook – no pun intended, okay, some pun intended. Facebook, although not without controversy, was started by a Harvard University student, Mark Zuckerberg; primarily as a way for college students to socialize. Since that time, Facebook’s growth has been staggering and has gone from one active user in 2004, to 1.2 billion active users in 2013. The social media journey and other incidentals could take up this whole article and then some but we’re here to discuss how this and other online social repositories affect the day-to-day claims investigation, to include the Internet Mining Investigation.

Serving the Insurance Community

In my role, I frequently travel with our sales staff or jump on a web-presentation and present to groups of claims handlers, risk managers, underwriters, even receptionists. No matter who it is, when they hear Internet Mining Investigation or Social Media, they all want to be in the room. Although I would like to believe they are all there to see me, I’m realistic, I know it’s the topic that captivates these people. When I start to show the audience what is actually available online, the mood quickly becomes that of concern and the smart phones come out as people start erasing information or revising they’re privacy settings.

The questions I find myself answering are:

When do we assign an Internet Mining Investigation?
How do I know what the best case would be to use an Internet Mining Investigation?
What do I do with the information once I get it?
Should I do surveillance first or the Internet Mining Investigation first?
With those questions and more in mind, I created a Top 10 List of things you and your investigative vendor can do to improve your results on each Internet Mining Investigation. Remember, the key to success in any investigation is the methodology used and the consistency in which the methodology is used. Trying to obtain all available information on someone by hopping from site to site with no game-plan is like trying to weed your grass blindfolded, you may get a weed here and there but take your blindfold off and you will see you missed more than you pulled and you ruined the grass in the process.

Internet In The Service Of Mankind

Using the Internet may destroy your faith – this is the conclusion of a study showing that a rapid decline in the number of religious people in the U.S.A. since 1990 is correlated to the ever growing number of people using the Internet.

Allen Downey, Professor of Computer Science at the Franklin W. Olin College, provided an answer to this question. He analyzed data collected through a general social questionnaire which was observing religious attitudes in the U.S.A. since 1972. He concluded that there were several factors that contributed to the fact that there is a decreasing number of Americans who consider themselves religious, the most controversial of which is the use of the Internet. The conclusion was that this was the precise reason why the number of people with religious affiliations had decreased over the last two decades.

The above paragraph is the beginning of an article published on a news portal, which I was heavily surprised with. Allen Downey writes about religion as if it was a shopping item, and the faithful were consumers with holes in their pockets. Faith is not a cold statistical number that can be analyzed through cold statistical questionnaires, but rather the sacred home to the soul, which liberates those who stray through the dark by means of divine light. Faith resides in every person who is a genuinely free individual, and there is no social questionnaire capable of peeking into the human soul. When Mr. Downey and others like him say that the Internet is to blame for the decreasing number of people who go to churches and other temples, he should take a closer look at the scriptures, because the Son of God teaches us that God is in every person that does good to others. A good person is the greatest temple of faith. I am asking this computer science professor whether faith’s holy mission isn’t the spreading of truth, humanity and justice. And the Internet is precisely the place that provides opportunity to many humanists and good-will people to spread those noble values that make us human in the first place. Without the Internet, there would be no Google, no Yahoo, no Gmail, LinkedIn, Amazon Kindle (an oasis to poets and writers), and a number of worldwide liberty-propagating portals. Allow me to prove the validity of my claim through a personal example. Thanks to the Internet, I have created my website containing a multitude of my articles, essays, poetry, as well as books published at e-shop, in which I write about compassion, justice, humanity, ideas towards the greater good, love, dreams, suffering and sorrows (lest we forget that a tear has the same taste and color on the faces of everyone, regardless of race, gender, or religion). These are works – essays, poetry, plays and novels – which embrace all those noble values that faith is feeding on. Of course, those works also discuss greed, insensitivity, vanity, cunning, corruption, nepotism, and all the diseases that are destroying the human soul and faith. Yes, these works might not be “bestsellers”, but they were written from the heart, for the hearts of all good-will people, and they would never stand a chance to get published in pro-regime media controlled by all kinds of dictators and political castes, or in “free” big media owned by magnates whom my works are unmasking.
