Tricks to sell your product

The whole idea of the marketing and sales is to play with the psychology of the consumers. In any campaign, efforts should be made it make it so influential that the decision making of the customer is totally in the favor of the company.

There are some tricks to manipulate the mind of the consumers, which can be utilized by not only ordinary sales person, but can be used by larger firms. Although they are used unknowingly, there is no set list.

Mutual exchanging is the first and powerful trick. The company can start with giving something for free to the customer. He will take it for the first time, but from next time he will feel obliged and will try to return the favor. Offering the product for free initially can do this. And if the customer is satisfied with the product, he will buy it for himself from next time. Some salespersons get confused with this principle.  For example, it is ineffective and wrong according to this principle, to quote 'Spend over $25 and get a free t-shirt'. The offer is not free; the customer has to spend something to get the free product. The product being given should be totally free without any condition to be fulfilled. For example, the line 'Get the latest lipstick shade absolutely free' will do the trick. If the shade is really good, they will buy it the next time and might even think of buying other shades of lipstick.

The next trick is to present something as of high value, but the company should incur only small or no amount in producing it, like information. It can tempt the customer by saying that the information provided to them is a big time secret and is not known to anyone at all. But some mess it up, by saying that they are providing very valuable information, but it turns out to be another advertisement.

Another example is giving out free sample to the targeted customers. Again the mistake made here is that companies distribute samples of poor quality or rejected products. This certainly lowers the customers liking towards the product and he will assume that's the way the product is actually and won't go ahead to buy it.

Use words, which initiate immediate action, like 'Limited time offer', 'Offer ending soon', and 'Offer till stocks lasts' are really motivating. The customer gets the impression that the offer will end really soon as the products are limited edition and he should go out and buy it at the very first chance. This works well specially with customers who have an interest in collecting antiques, collectibles and anything which are not easily available.

Tricking the customer in making a commitment is another next good method to increase sales. The trick is to make the customer to take small steps toward the goal, without realizing about it. Like when the customer requests for some information, provide them with the relevant information for free and make them fill a form and take contact information from them. This is like committing to get offers and information about products in future. Do not advertise in this step. In the next step advertisements about products and services can be sent to the customer to the address provided by them. Conducting surveys is another example.

Lottery is another good method. When a person buys a lottery ticket, he fills his address on the ticket. This information can be used to contact the customer in future. In the above practices it's very vital to not to advertise in the first step. Only after getting the customer contact information, should promotional mails be mailed to him. Long advertisements that are featured in the newspaper are a small twist to this trick. If the customer invests time to read the whole advertisement, he has committed and will surely respond to the ad.

Making Money with Articles: How Much Can I Make?

How much you can make from placing articles and affiliate links on your website differs from person to person. How much you are able to make will depend mostly on how successful your site is. This means getting good search engine rankings through SEO efforts, making your site enjoyable and informative to read through engaging content, building your site around a great niche subject, how big your site is, and how many sites you have.

Some people claim to make as much as $10,000 per month ($120,000 per year) through building and promoting niche sites, however, most people should not expect this kind of success, especially if you are very new, as that kind of success usually only comes with experience and acquired skill. A reasonable income to expect from a niche site, after you have worked for months to gain traffic and are hooked up with good affiliates, may be $500-$1,000 per month. However this is recurring income, so you will make that much monthly off of the efforts you put into that one site, it is not a one shot deal.

After you have a successful site, most choose to continue to build niche sites. The more sites that you build, the better an income you can generate. Some also choose to build very fast and very short sites over sites that are slightly longer in length. It should be noted that the larger each of your sites are, the more income you will likely generate off of them.

When starting out, it is important to remember that your first site will always be your hardest, since you are just learning the ropes of the business, and that not everyone is cut out to market and promote niche sites. It may not work out for you and you may end up losing a little bit of money, but that is a risk that everyone in this business has to take.

The important thing is that you don't give up without a good shot at it, if this is really what you want to do. Your first site may take a long time, the work may be tedious, and you may feel like throwing in the towel. However, if you give up too early, you will never know what could have been. And who knows, you may be the next great website marketer!

Taming Customers though Promotional Marketing

If a business firm id able to control the minds of million of customers, it will earn billions as profit. It is impossible to do that. But using some promotional strategies, the mind of the consumer can be tamed by influencing their decision making power. They can be presented with material, which can be motivating and persuading. There is no magic involved in this; only the psychology of the human mind is to be studied and played with. Human mind reacts to different situations in different ways.  Some key psychological aspects can be studied in promotional marketing to get overwhelming customer response.

Curiosity is the want to explore the unknown. Humans are always in pursuit of knowledge. They want to know more than what others know. Secrets are simply hard to be kept. This desire can act as an attractive force in marketing. Like customer won't be that interested if they are told that they can be provided with successful diets. Instead they want to hear the secret of the diet plan which is being provided.

The information shouldn't be let out easily. Obviously it is important to catch the attention of the customer by interesting heading, but the content, too, should be as interesting so as to retain the interest of the reader till the end. In case of cross-titles or sub-titles, the initial ones will always have the advantage of developing more curiosity than the following sub-titles.

If the content speaks about why the customer should select so and so company or product, it will be easier for them to relate to it. Let the matter speak out and give the explanation by itself. Like supposing a company wants to sell some product before the expiry date and it's the slowest time of the season, plain advertising won't do the trick. Customers are smart enough to think that the company wants to get rid of the old stuff. Instead if the customers are provided with a discount or a limited time offer, a believable reason, they will be more attracted. Every action should have a solid reason.

Customers are greedy from a marketing point of view.  By understanding the need of the customer, a basis can be prepared for the content. Their greed should be taken into consideration while preparing the content. They should be shown how the product or company would benefit them. They want to buy benefits in the form of products. Suppose when advertising for a camcorder, say that it displays all the colors that can be seen with naked eye, instead of saying it supports 16-bit color.

Just specifying that the memory card have a memory of 2 GB isn't catchy. Instead it should be quoted that the memory card can store over 500 pictures, 100 audio songs and 50 videos. This surely will increase the customer enthusiasm. The benefits should be clearly mentioned to the customer and later other information about the product can be discussed, incase if they are looking for more. This is called listing the product features. Features reveal what the product has and benefits describe the advantages that can be derived from those features. Each feature can have more than one benefit, depending on different situations and customer needs. Lots of benefits and fewer features should always be the way to go.

Going Retail in Riyadh

Much has been said and written about the globalization of the marketplace in the new century. More and more, business no longer sees their markets as limited to their community, state or even this country. To be successful in the new world economies, we have to see our markets as international if for no other reason than that our competition and our customers are seeing these markets.

The press likes to make a fuss about the effect of international trade on the national workforce. While that is a concern, the old axiom that every problem represents an opportunity applies well to this business paradigm. If we as business people begin to see the international business community as our opportunity to tap into markets and revenue streams otherwise unimaginable in another market environment, we can capture a new profitability that can come with success in those markets.

However, doing business in foreign markets demands some changes to how we go about structuring our contracts and sales and distribution networks. One of the most explosive markets that is just beginning to become available to western businesses are the wealthy cultures of the Middle East. With the explosion of the Dubai projects and the westernization of many of the Middle East cultures, it is becoming possible to "go retail in Riyadh" if we are willing to learn the culture and how to approach those markets. To do so, the following constraints should be taking into consideration.

§ Middle East markets are self protecting. Many Middle East countries restrict commerce to occur only between business entities within the country. This can be worked around utilizing partnerships with local businesses who can bring in your product and create a local franchise. The business is still yours, as are the profits, but the localization of your presence in a Middle East economy is set up to honor these restrictions.

§ Middle East markets work under Islamic Law. There will be interruptions for daily prayer and for Islamic holidays that you will be expected to honor. So be prepared to be respectful of these customs. Also be sensitive that nothing in your product offerings makes reference to other religious viewpoints. This is not being timid about our own culture. It is just being savvy about how to work profitably in an Islamic culture.

§ Distribution and management must be internationalized. You probably will not be able to set up a warehouse in the middle of Saudi Arabia with your company name on it. Because of the local bias of the states where you want to do business, take advantage of any existing distribution channels that go through Europe or other surrounding countries to route your product to the Middle East and turn over ownership, management and distribution of the product within the Middle East to your Arabic partners before the product enters the country. This careful set up of your network will pay off in the long run.

§ There are friends and enemies in the Middle East. Many fear doing business in the Middle East because of dangers due to recent conflicts. Just be aware that the west has many allies in these countries and there is a desire to partner with us within the more sophisticated economies in the Middle East. By taking care as you forge your relationships and using local wisdom to craft your business dealings, you can do business in the Middle East safely and profitably.

These are significant issues when considering whether it is time for your company to start offering your products and services to the wealthy nations of the Middle East. But if the time has come that your business is ready to start building those international commerce channels, the results can be tremendously profitable for your bottom line. The investment is worth the effort if the business structures are developed wisely.


What is IT

IT stands for Information Technology. It is simple pronounce I T, the two separate letters. In most organizations it is the computer department. The place where all the geeks gather to hunch over clicking keyboards to get the computer to do some wonderful new trick. That is what people imagine. In fact the IT departments are one of the key elements in today’s technology. Without IT departments, there would be many items we commonly take for granted no longer available to us.

IT departments are responsible for every banking system in the world today. It was the IT departments who first made it possible for online banking. It was the IT department who came up with computer software designed to allow the use of debit and credit cards. Lending institutions and finance companies who depend on amortization calculators would have to go back to figuring by hand with out the use of the programs developed by IT departments.

In short, if a computer generated the program for the device or system you are using, it was an IT department somewhere who designed it. Thus was born the business analyst. The business analyst may or may not have been from the IT department. He or she may not be able to write code. They do know the intricacies behind it. They are the ones able to speak with others to determine what the IT department should be doing.

The system works something like this. The stakeholder, someone in business or with a business interest, has an idea he or she thinks may sell or make the business more money. The idea may only generate an easier way of doing things. Faster production means less man hours. Less man hours means less payroll. Less payroll means more money for the company to spend somewhere else. The problem came when the stakeholder tried to explain what he or she wanted from the IT department. The IT department caught on to the general concept and designed an application for the program. The stakeholder found he could not use the code. Enter the business analyst.

The business analyst will listen to the stakeholder. He or she will evaluate the situation to determine if the needs of the stakeholder are viable. The business analyst can determine if other items are necessary for the stakeholder and the end user to be happy. When it is determined exactly what the stakeholder needs, the business analyst will speak with the IT department. The IT department will be off and running.

The IT department in many companies have developed amazing things. You just never know what an IT department has done for you until you stop and think about it. Processors run on code. Tiny processors are used for many things we use in everyday life. Cell phones and cordless phones are two things everyone uses. Bluetooth technology was developed by a team of IT specialists. The computers in the vehicle you drive are running code an IT department somewhere developed.

When someone mentions the IT department, it should be done with respect. Almost any electronic device or system run with a computer code would not be functioning if it were not for the IT department.

Making Money from the Inside Out

It is a well-understood axiom of the business world that there are two ways to improve the bottom line of the business. Stated simply, those two ways are to make money or to cut costs. Now no business can cost cut their way to profitability. But by the same token, waste and excessive internal costs for any business can eat away any profits that business is enjoying. So to get ahead in a competitive business environment, both methods must be employed.

When a business turns its eye to cost cutting, there is a stated or unstated business objective that the business owners will discover significant bleeding of revenues that are going on within the systems of doing business. So if those systems can be improved to eliminate that waste, the business would literally make money from the inside out because the overhead of the business would drop so dramatically.

The usual progress of such a cost saving campaign by a business is to find "the low hanging fruit" first. By that we mean that in order to satisfy the demands of management, middle management will identify superficial savings in hopes of satisfying the requirement. Hence switching from disposable cups to mugs or cutting back on break room amenities often go on the chopping block first.

Sadly, while there may be some superficial savings to be found in such places, the significant introduction of efficiencies for any business lie at a deeper level and take a more in-depth process of locating problems with how things get done internally. The methodology of finding these "money pits" within a business is often called "Process Improvement." The concept of process improvement is to diagram a particular business process from inception to completion and document the stages it goes through, the handing over of authority for the process and to pin point places where inefficient methods are causing excessive cost in executing that process en route to the final stage of process completion.

Routinely, the areas of business structure that most often identified as being candidates for a process improvement examination are…

* Excessive overhead between departments. Departments within a business are notorious for taking on the atmosphere of a fiefdom and becoming resistant if not suspicious of other departments in the same company. When that happens, department managers will introduce paperwork and unnecessary processing to cause "work" to move to his or her department from another or for completed jobs to continue along their path. This excessive overhead can be costly at the department level and bog down the business as a unit enough to actually reduce the profitability of the organization.

* Communication problems. A business process moves through the organization as each department or entity adds value to the process through to the completion of the job. However if communications between departments or people along the process chain are flawed, a process can grind to a halt and wait for hours if not days before the missed communication is discovered and the work is put into the cycle to be completed. This slow down or break down in communications can be a tremendous drain on the company. To correct the problem, modern tools of communication should be reviewed so each significant person along the chain is quickly made aware of work that needs to be done and can signal to the next agent that their step is complete and that the process is moving to the next stage.

* An inefficient IT infrastructure. Out of date computer programs that are not integrated with each other cause needless work to be done to take data from one system and moving it into the next computer program only to be entered again at the next stop along the chain. Standardization and integration of data and systems will introduce huge efficiencies to the process.

By streamlining the process of moving a business requirement from inception to conclusion, we can remove much of the inefficiency and waste that has become inherent to that process. We can introduce up to date integration designs both at the IT and process level to quickly move the process from one department to the next upon completion. The outcome is a streamlined organization that is no longer "bleeding money" due to inefficiencies and as such is making money "from the inside out".

Business law Advisor-justification of criminal penalties for violations of Corporate Governance


1. Corporate governance concerns the separation of ownership and control results when a company is publicly traded and therefore has too many owners who cannot control all companies at a time, and as such, they hire professional Managers to do so. Was defined, as follows:
“The system through which those involved in the management of the company are held accountable for their performance, with the objective of ensuring that they adhere to the objectives fixed in the company”.

It is generally accepted that the law plays a key role in corporate governance particularly in the provision of shareholder protection and reduction of expropriation that is the result of the separation of ownership and control. However, the importance of the role of criminal law in enforcing good corporate governance there are more than one view. Effectiveness of criminal sanctions in deterring violations of corporate governance.

2. in order to discourage unwanted behavior, criminal law has traditionally used such penalties of imprisonment, fines and the stigma of criminality. While it’s been debated in general the effectiveness of such sanctions in the criminal law, it has been persuasively argued that they may actually deter corporate crime. Because the companies are primarily useful for institutions choosing to break the law, only if it is profitable. Profit maximization decisions closely rely on probability and the amount of potential profit, then a company decision to violate the criminal law would generally include a calculation of the probability of prosecution and probable severity of any punishment. These costs high enough should eliminate the potential benefit of illegal business and, therefore, any incentive to engage in such activity.

Improper business conduct 2.1 might be deterred by applying criminal sanctions for the same company or its agents and employees. A company cannot, obviously, be imprisoned, but there may be the stigma of criminal label attached to it. This stigma could affect company behaviour if led to decreased profits.

2.2. a system of fines imposed on companies even properly should discourage corporate wrongdoing as fines are large enough to force the companies to disgorge any advantage gained by the infringing conduct.

2.3 you can deter misbehavior company by applying criminal sanctions to individuals in your organization. Since entrepreneurs fear the stigma of criminality for personal and economic reasons, such sanctions could be effective deterrents. In fact, the fear of criminal prosecution or investigation, even if there is no conviction, may actually discourage company officials.

Corporate 2.4 civil penalties and civil penalties also individual will be inadequate When an individual is motivated to break the law by reasons other than simply business. He may ask, for example, to improve his position within the company or even to use his position to violate a law that he believes is unfair. Therefore, any additional deterrent that’s needed to complete a system of civil fines could only be achieved by imposing penalties on such reprehensible behavior by individuals.

criminal law also authorizes 2.5 other law-abiding individuals-if the Board of Directors, managers and other professionals-to stand up to well-meaning colleagues or not, at a minimum, to resist with guilt.

2.6 survival and long-term viability of the company is no longer a private interest that only affects those who deal with the corporation at a primary level, for example, investors, but also public interest affecting the wellbeing of stakeholders such as employees, which provides jobs and pensions. The Government, therefore, has a responsibility to ensure that employees, as well as other members of society are protected from fraudulent acts of the managers who are not acting in the interests of the company. The success of the company is, therefore, a public interest which, to a certain extent, should be protected through State regulation.

2.7 Research confirmed that penal sanctions are the only mechanism able to protect investors from wide-scale fraud or theft. Every country uses harsh penalties to deal with Enron and Parmalat.

Lawsuit finance brokers-the good news

The purpose of this and of all articles published by myself is to educate the public about the cause of corporate financing as a whole. The premise is that if the public is more aware of the business and how it works, will benefit the lawsuit loan industry and customers alike. This article touches on various ways lawsuit financing operations originate cases to be considered for a lawsuit cash advance.

Like most farms where there is sufficient demand, the new business is a variety of ways. In business, business funding lawsuit is usually through direct engagement “in house” or lawsuit financing brokers.

Broker Origination

Originating business is essentially informing the large number of people the services/products offered, and then the application manager/orders for the product/service. The pre-lending settlement really is no different. Broker funding lawsuit specialize in loan origination activity lawsuit funding companies.

Of course, there are costs associated with this part of the business and ultimately, all costs are passed to consumers. If you apply a cash advance on your funding lawsuit-the consumer.

Still, a broker is also an entity that helps the applicant through the funding process. The company is a well qualified guide and can be extremely valuable to the applicant. Some of the advantages of working with a broker are:

1. experience-generally, people who earn their living in an effort to gain expertise in that area. In particular, the cause of corporate financing is a unique form of “specialty finance”, where common sense mixed with intricate knowledge of the legal process. Of people who have experience in the field are usually able to offer the loan process of lawsuit which, otherwise, might not be available. This insight may prove valuable for applicants for pre settlement loans.

2. access to multiple lenders-brokers also have relationships with several cash advance litigation funders. This can also serve to help the applicant since the signing of the cases is quite subjective and each lender has its own risk model. Access to multiple lenders can help an applicant with a case of “marginal” money funding otherwise available.

3. ability to answer questions and personal attention-because because Brokers financing are intimately aware of the funding process, have the ability to answer most, if not all your questions. More importantly, candidates have access to these individuals on a more consistent basis than if they have to do with a direct lender. More communication involves usually more positive results. Since the applicants can better explain their position to the broker and broker compensation is contingent on the applicant receives money for the cause, brokers are eager to help.

Of course, the benefits listed above come with a cost. In the next post, we will discuss in detail the costs associated with using the services of a broker, when you apply for loans of lawsuit.

Filing a claim for product liability

Damage caused by defective products are required as are error on the part of the manufacturer/dealer. Both the settlement in court or through a court verdict, everybody wants easy and fast. Before submitting a product liability claim, you must do so to assess a lawyer expert in this filed and need to do it quickly, the weather plays an important factor in these cases.

Important points to note before filing

By law, each manufacturer/retailer is liable for his product. Any defect that leads to injury can be sued. A product can have manufacturing defects. In such cases, the design should be modified to reduce these risks. If the manufacturer is responsible.

Before submitting a case to try three things: responsibility, damages and possible subrogation.

Liabilities, damages and subrogation

Responsibility for directing at the company/person who is going to take responsibility for damage caused to you. What happens if these companies no longer exist? What if there was a spin-off or merger or bankruptcy? In such cases it is necessary to find the successor company to the complaint and to ensure the validity of the complaint.

Next step is to determine the damage. A physician must specify specific injuries and damage that using the product immediately and that those injuries were in fact from the use of the product. These can be physical injuries, medical expenses, compensation for pain and suffering, future emotional, loss of Consortium, etc. You may also need an economist to declare that lost wages and benefits due to injuries from the product.

Now you can take your case to an attorney. He will evaluate your case. In cases where there has been one death due to the injuries, the lawyer may lead to an arrangement for the Court’s relative through monetary gestures out by manufacturers.

Subrogation means that if your insurance company or your company has paid the Bills, are entitles to to get that money back from you when you have successfully obtained compensation of product liability for the claim. Therefore, the insurance company or your company will put an interest on money spent on you.

So, you should consider the interest and carefully calculate the amount of compensation. This will not be canceled. Specific cases where it can be requested additional compensation afterwards is when the damage done to develop a new complications later in life, such as cancer.

If it cannot be ascertained the full extent of the damage, then you can ask for structured settlements and/or partial with reserved rights to go back and claim compensation.

Hazardous waste and hazardous material law-book review

Do run a business or a local government agency and find yourself utterly baffled by a myriad of hazardous materials laws. Confused of MSDS, cradle to grave political and what on Earth the inspectors and even your boss expect? Well, you’re not alone and from an industry where we have had to deal with all this even though we have a barely class material.]

In fact, suffice it to say, I know what a challenge it can be to comply with not knowing what sections or agency or at what level is the paperwork are suppose to file, turn, or what to do with it. Well, there is a very good book I had in my desk to look up such information. Is the name of the book;

“Dangerous materials, hazardous waste, local management options” (practice management series) edited by Raymond d. Scanlon, Series Editor Barbara h. Moore, published by running Press International, Washington D.C., (1987), pages, ISBN: 0-87326-052-X.

In this book you will discover the intricacies of all regulations in case you haven’t yet encountered it. Also learn about environmental risks, and how does the system of information disclosure or worked-reminds us this book is rather old, things have changed. There is also a big difference between user small generators and large ones.

Underground tanks and issues are covered, as well as case studies in worst case scenarios. Information on routes of a security policy for hazardous waste class II or higher. You can also learn about hazardous waste sites, municipal landfill permits and how to assess the risks of chemicals or hazardous waste that we create and what to do with it. The case studies in this book will help tremendously and help you understand what to do, because it should be done and how to document what has been done to the correct agencies. Please consider all this.

By car: tapping into intrinsic motivation for lawyers

2009 book of Daniel h. Pink titled “Drive: the surprising truth about what motivates us” (“Drive”) is full of information that are very important to the legal profession today.

The Central Thrust of the album is that motivate professionals like lawyers law requires businesses to move beyond the traditional use of sticks and carrots, punishments and rewards. Rose argues that instead of focusing on these external reasons, lawyers have to do is tap into the inherent motivational drives of their lawyers. This will result in more engaging work and ultimately more satisfying. Rose contends that this not only reduces turnover and burnout, but that really is the key to high performance.

Pink highlights three key aspects of work that make it more intrinsically satisfying (i) autonomy; (ii) mastery; and (iii) purpose. He argues that these components of intrinsic motivation are interdependent and mutually-which, like the legs of a tripod, of excellence cannot stay without each component in place.

If there is no merit to the argument of Pink, law firms would be good to pay attention to each of the three components of intrinsic motivation in human resource strategies. Here are some ideas on how to do it:

(i) autonomy: there are five main ways enterprises can increase the overall sense of their advocates of autonomy. These include giving lawyers more leeway: (i) to work on (independent of the subject); (ii) when to do their job (autonomy); (iii) where do their job (autonomy); (iv) they do their work (team autonomy); and (v) how to do their work (technical autonomy). The idea is that companies must grant their lawyers full autonomy on all aspects of their work. It is simply that law firms have five separate channels available along which promote greater autonomy of lawyers, and that an increase in autonomy along any of these five channels will result in a higher level of job satisfaction.

(ii) mastery: firms can promote mastery advocate aligning the difficulty of some activities with the General level of skill or their lawyers. Rose calls these “tasks of Goldilocks”-activities that are neither too hard nor too difficult. The idea is that, in order to develop the knowledge that is important for lawyers to get engaged; and in order to be engaged, they must be presented with challenges that are well suited to their level of skill. Tasks that are too challenging results in a sense of being overwhelmed; tasks that are too easy to result in boredom; activity, neither too hard nor too easy but “fair” result commitment. Commitment, in turn, leads to mastery. Law firms that are masterful development lawyers should ensure that they are neither overwhelmed nor bored-who are engaged by their work in General. If businesses are able to find this balance, their lawyers work becomes his reward.

(iii) purpose: to make their job more satisfying lawyers, law firms would also do well to enhance the emphasis put on significant, not just profitable, work-that is, that gives them a sense that lawyers are making a positive contribution to something bigger than themselves. This does not mean rejecting profit as reason; It simply means making more room for contributions led nonprofit. This could mean crafting a mission statement or vision that embraces the wholesome values related non-profit and ensuring that incoming lawyers to share those values. It could also mean putting more emphasis on pro bono work and maybe even as part of performance reviews. It could also mean taking professional coaches to work with their lawyers.

Introduction to types of Small Business Finance

The best place to start looking for a small business loan is with SBA. They have all kinds of financial assistance and aid programs for small business owners. Assuming there is a need for funding from the commercial market place outside the purview of SBA, described herein are some basics about the options available for small business owners.

The most fundamental question that the entrepreneur must ponder is whether to opt for debt financing or equity financing. Each has its pros and cons and further subdivisions in terms of types of financing. Which is most suitable depends on factors such as the business type, age, cash flow and credit rating and history of the owner.

Debt financing can be a loan, bond, or line of credit from a bank or other lenders or even just an IOU. It is usually the best option if the business project is very specific and has a well-defined timeline. The borrower must put something as collateral as a form of protection.

The owner of credit rating and history will have a great impact on the ability to secure financing to small businesses. The company also has to have enough cash flow (cash flow) to honor the rebate program. It is important for the owner to do some business planning to work out a feasible repayment period based on the cash flow.

With equity financing, the owner offers the investor the properties in return for cash. Has some disadvantages such as loss of control, since the investor would want a part of the decision making. But unlike small business loans, equity investments do not need to be repaid with interest, so it makes it easier to run the task.

The equity option is feasible for large financing needs and on a long-term basis without deadlines and immediate for a ROI. It is to be noted that stock investors looking for higher yields, although it’s a relatively longer delay. The owner is not likely to regain full control in the short term and probably not even in the long term.

Equity investment can be in the form of individual investments made on a personal basis by the owner, friends, relatives, colleagues or angel investors. May be provided by a venture capital financing. Equity financing is more focused on the potential for success of the project and does not require the type of guarantees or guarantees for debt financing.

As mentioned above, the decision on debt vs. Equity will depend on the type of business, the current situation and the credibility of the owner. Too much debt is not good for business, and no one is losing control entirely equity investors. Must find the right balance, and that debt-equity ratio is different for different types of industries.

On a related note, it helps to have more options on how to use it to maximize the impact of funding on the business. For example, instead of buying equipment outright, it might be useful to consider equipment leasing. There are a lot more things that need to be considered, and it is best to consult a lawyer or a banker trust for more information about the options for the financing of small businesses.

EMV Credit Cards: What Are They?

The EMV technology will soon be a huge hit in the United States. As a consumer, it always pays to know what this term pertains to. The EMV has been a mainstay in many European countries when it comes to their credit cards. Bank of America was one of the first institutions in the US to announce that they will be integrating EMV on their consumer cards. So what are these EMV credit cards?

EMV Explained

EMV is an acronym for EuroPay, MasterCard and Visa and is a standard for inter-processing of IC or integrated credit cards. When cards have this kind of chip embedded in them, it becomes easier to authenticate both credit and debit transactions. The three huge names entrenched in EMV have joined forces to make sure that security and interoperability can be achieved.

Cards that have the EMV technology are also called IC credit cards, PIN, and Chip cards. Although the system is predominant in European countries, many banks in the United States express that the demand in the country is not enough to counterbalance the costs involved in making the change.

The EMV Advantage

There are two types of cards with EMV: the contact and the contactless cards. If you have either of them, you can actually experience a ton of benefits. Among them are the following:

EMVs offer more security than traditional credit cards when it comes to fraud. Regular cards simply depend on encoded data from the magnetic stripe found at the back of the card.
When performing a transaction with a card that has EMV, there is a unique digital signature for that particular transaction. This digital signature is only present in the chip and it strongly demonstrates the authenticity of the card in the offline store. Plus, the virtual seal also acts as a combatant against any fraudulent payments made with your credit card.
Many consumers are now paying for goods online. While conventional cards come with anti-fraud protection, the EMV chips provide a stronger barrier against illegal acts. They can secure online transactions to further protect the card holders while providing efficient assistance to the merchants and the issuers as well. This is performed through the exceptional online cryptogram solely created for EMV cards.
If your card has EMV, you can enhance your verification methods.
EMV cards can also store more information than cards that have magnetic stripes.
EMV Card Protocols

There is a transmission protocol that card readers and the chips use to communicate with each other. What happens is that when a command is sent to the card, the card will immediately process it. Then, it will act in response to the protocol, which can be any of the following:

Application block or unblock
Get data
Generate cryptogram for an application
Block the card
Obtain processing options
Change the PIN
Verify the transaction
Read the records
Commands that include verifying and selecting transactions and internal authentication are defined by inter-commerce commands. These are commonly utilized in several card applications, including those found in SIM cards of GSM phones.

Avoid bad credit and keep your finances in good shape

Credit acquisition is not a bad thing, as you know how to handle the debt and repayment. In this post, let’s discuss some tips on how to manage three important aspects of debt more effectively.

Home Loan Management

The monthly payment on the loan even just once can get you into trouble. Some lenders immediately send a notice of foreclosure if you fall behind for two consecutive months. So, rather than wait until you missed the second or third month of payment, your best bet is to contact your mortgage lender. Don’t wait until a notice of debt collection.

If you can keep it up with monthly loan payments due to your current financial situation, you should discuss the situation with the lender. You just lost a job? Or someone in the family is sick? Whatever the reason for struggling with debt payments, you should never ignore expiration dates or wait until your lender you contact on last two debts.

Many lenders are willing to change the initial conditions of the mortgage home to help a borrower experiencing financial crises. For example, your lender may decide to reduce the rate of monthly loan or extend the period of repayment to lower monthly expenses. The sooner you can talk to your lender about the problem before we can find a solution.

Managing credit card debt

If you have more than one credit card, it is very important to pay attention to your expenses. The credit card holders can save a great deal of money if you can avoid allegations of monthly interest rate. The secret is paying monthly balances in full, instead of keeping a revolving balance.

Before you upload anything on your credit card, ask yourself, “will I be able to pay the full amount before the deadline?” If you are in doubt whether you can pay full or not, it is best not to use your credit card and simply use cash.

Another important step is to check your monthly statement before posting your payment. You may experience errors and if you don’t take the time to review your Bill, you may end up paying for expenses that you don’t have to. In case you discover erroneous charges on your credit card invoice, call your issuer immediately to dispute the charges.

Managing your personal finances

Do you have a precise plan for the month? If you do not follow a financial plan, you should begin to create one. Make a list of all charges for the entire month and compare the total amount to your monthly earnings. Are spending more than what you earn?

Based on the list, it will be much easier to see your spending pattern. You might need to make some adjustments or modifications with your charge, but doing so can save you from the trouble and pain that may bring the bad credit.

Protecting your Business from credit card fraud

Credit card fraud not only happen to personal cards. Many business owners have already become a victim of fraud on their trading accounts. Because thieves prefer business accounts one reason is that it was believed that business cards with higher limits. Then, they can spend as much as you want with a single card.

Although a credit/debit card comes with protection for the card holder and there is also responsibility for $ 0, the way you use and can even affect your credit score. The impact can be time-consuming to resolve. Protecting your business from credit card fraud means that you need to perform some methods alone. This is especially true if you have an online business. To protect your business from fraud, the following steps may help:

Step 1: Watch out for fraudulent activity.

There are a few things you need to be on the lookout for. These include:

Multiple orders for expensive products
Applicant and several orders from a customer without much range
International orders
Products that rarely are bought in bulk are now be ordered in large quantities
Many scammers will buy various products of max the credit that they stole. Want to learn all you can in a short period of time. Con artists will prey on your online shop, especially if your business is still new. Make sure that you investigate the buyer if the indications given above. In this way, you get to reduce losses due to fraud.

Step 2: Ask for the card verification number on all card payments.

Credit cards have a card verification number (CVN)-the three-digit number found on the back of your card. AMEX cards have four, which are upon the face of the card. Even if you require that the CVN is only a small step, it can still serve to protect against fraud. Only people who have the real card is able to read the numbers.

Step 3: checks Require address verification system.

When looking for a credit card processing company, you should go for one that offers the possibility to control the adapter address and the buyer. Or address verification system AVS determines whether the address provided by the buyer is the same address of cardholder records. If you know the exact location on file, this can be a small protective measure against card fraud to your business.

Step 4: Contact the customer to make sure that he or she actually ordered products from you.

This is actually one of the easiest ways to find out if the actual cardholder has made the order. Scammers rarely answer the phone or you can give a random number. If there is no response, you should leave a message and ask the person to call to verify your purchase.

Step 5: Confirm the veracity of the email address.

Some scammers would create an email address for online purchases in bulk. Free email services, such as those from Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail are very easy to obtain. For orders placed by individuals in foreign countries, you may not recognize the domain they use. You can do a web search to see if the page seems suspicious. It is important that don’t rely on an email address to find out whether the customer’s purchase is legitimate.

Structured settlement industry history

People receive structured settlement payments as a result of legal action. Some cite another, an agreement is reached and the defendant agrees to make payment over time. The defendant, in collaboration with an insurance company, pension insurance purchases from another insurance company. Pension policy makes winning now and in the future to the applicant of the original lawsuit. The actor is receiving payments, what now?

In 2001, Congress passed a law that was signed by President Bush and put into force in 2002 (United State Code, section 5891). This has created a legal way for those who receive tax-free payments under a structured settlement for selling their annuity payments regardless of whether the language of annuity or policy settlement was originally written in such a way as to prohibit a future sale. As a result, all transfers, now must be approved by a State Court, under State law, prior to the transfer of funds. The laws require that structured settlement transfers shall be made according to strict guidelines. A contract is executed with the seller after full disclosure of price and other contractual terms and conditions. The sale is announced to all interested parties (beneficiaries of payment, insurance companies) and then must be approved by a judge in a formal hearing.

Currently, 47 States have their winning transfer laws. While these laws can vary slightly from State to State, all require that the Court rule that the sale is in the best interest of the seller, taking into account the welfare and support of any dependents. It is important to note that ‘ interest ‘ has been interpreted quite broadly by the courts such that a seller does not need to face serious financial difficulties; why selling future payments can be something as simple as paying high-interest debt or pay for continuing education. The laws are written to allow sufficient flexibility to assess the current financial situation of the seller against the need or want to sell future payments today.

The legal process was enacted nine years ago to protect not only the seller, but also transfer companies and insurance companies, ensuring that all parties are on the same page and have a voice in this process. If the transfer company follows the law as drafted, and the seller has reason to sell, the structured settlement payment flow brings a high value in today’s markets.

Financing a small business, financing the future of Italy?

Growing and small businesses are an important part of the economy of Australia. Entrepreneurial commitment, openness and growth of companies, is the lifeblood of our internal growth. And small businesses, and nurtured in the right way, can become large enterprises that increase Australia’s standing in the global economy. Australia-multinational like BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and briers-could be the names on the lips of the international community, but it’s small businesses-employing 5 million Australians-who lead the country’s success in the coming years.

Maybe that’s why the Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan listen intensely local shopkeepers during the development of a Government policy for small businesses. The owners and employees of these companies is to know what is important to them. Understand their business better than anyone else, and they have a vested interest in its success both now and in the future.

The philosophy of Mr. Swan is in stark contrast to the way that many big banks treat the small business owner. The Federal Treasurer shall take the views and comments of small businesses and national political formula that will benefit from this important sector of our economy. It seems that, despite the fact that he cannot claim to those owners who speaks of ‘ knowing ‘, make efforts to know and understand their concerns and then act on them. More and more these days, the big banks, available on all major roads, appear more and more detached from the companies and their owners of which should have expert knowledge. Explaining the concerns and hopes, difficulties and the potential for a growing business to a business manager of the local bank, often falls on deaf ears. Maybe that’s why small and medium-sized enterprises are turning to small houses to finance housing for their needs.

Small businesses need nourishment and unfortunately the big banks are no longer able to do this. At a time when he needs a small business support and financial support of large banks have (despite their advertisements) appear in many cases to closed down and turned its back on the very activities that are helping to grow the Australian economy. It is important to understand the financier the vital importance not only to support the growth of small businesses, but takes the time to find the financing solution that is best for you and your unique business situation.

5 keys to a strong Resume Leadership for Medical Affairs, Biotech, or R and d

Plan to make your experience of clinical and scientific business to pursue an executive position in medical affairs, R & D or biotechnology? An interesting curriculum for these camps evolved beyond a list of technical expertise and hands-on roles.

Attract employers nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, biotech or medical device industries to integrate these elements into your curriculum leadership:

1-your strategic leadership.

Medical affairs or managers of R & D, particularly the Vice-Presidents, combine business meetings on the business side with a charter to oversee research strategy, manage clinical trials and validate scientific claims support specific products.

As shown in this sample shot VP of Medical Affairs, you must explain how the influence of leadership has created successful product implementations, or promoted greater understanding between business and clinical groups.

Many medical affairs, R & D or leader of biotechnology offer extensive technical skills (such as a background in R & D, clinical practice or medical school).

This responsibility for the commercial viability of pharmaceuticals and drug delivery systems, including sales training and a clear understanding of the target market of each product, is expected to take center stage on your resume.

Storage and transport of dangerous goods

You need to store and transport dangerous goods in specialized containers are produced with certain specifications. Packing of these products must be made respecting the rules of State as mispackaging or another mistake can lead to a disaster.

Packaging of dangerous goods is a number significantly different from normal packing. Packaging and transport regulations are rigid and you have to take care that these are followed in Word and spirit. A slip on would attract harsh penalties or serious consequences to others and will definitely not pleased with that.

There is a long list of items that are classified as dangerous goods and all these are distinctly different regulations regarding storage and transportation, so you need very sure what rules you must follow. It might be a truck carrying hazardous chemicals or a ship carrying radioactive material. Should know exactly how to deal with these scenarios and ensure total compliance with the law.

As you do not carry these goods each day, you need to double check the regulations and, if you have any confusion, you should consult with the appropriate authorities. Typically, you would need a special licence to store or transfer these assets.

Goods that require special arrangements are usually segregated into three categories-explosive & combustible elements, chemicals, nuclear and medical articles. You have to meet certain specific containers for storing those items. This ensures that dangerous goods may be transported with ease with little or no security or safety risks, providing they have met the specifications.

Containers used for the transport of hazardous materials are hazmat boxes. These are convoluted Urethane foam for protection of fragile products shipped within a corrugated cardboard box, ensuring that dangerous goods are stored and transported securely.

The packaging of these products must also be done by trained personnel. Will know how to handle such materials while minimizing the associated risks. When done by inexperienced people, handling and packaging of such materials will always carry a higher risk.

Separate containers are for storing different types of materials. For example, there are innovative and flexible solutions, with a variety of Interior containers for storing laboratory samples. However, you must ensure that these fit the required maximum gross weight of inner packing as well as the gross weight of the complete package for ensuring global security.

There are two types of packaging styles-combination and single packaging. Combined packing involves one or more packaged types, placing pillows in means of transport. Single packing, however, involves only a container.

Get your containers from suppliers who have sufficient experience in packaging design, testing and customizing your packaging of dangerous goods. Sell these using tags as United Nations approved packaging, packaging DOT approved, etc. Procure the containers from a manufacturer that has proper certification. It is in your best interest to avoid violating the safety or safety specifications.

The supplier must provide the necessary information for the personnel involved in the packaging and transportation of goods. They must have clear instructions (how close the package) and how to respond in an emergency, such as the transport vehicle overturned.

How Business can provide Online training at no extra cost for the Software and support

This research study opens with a review of the literature which details the financial challenges both small businesses and nonprofit organizations. The paper then focuses on the free design and free development tools available to trainers who wish to distribute their programs in a virtual environment. The book will present a synopsis of the processes used to develop online training materials and recommendations for future research.

The Internet has changed the face of how businesses have many options when choosing how to present and share information. The decision to use an online training platform and programs translates into a new learning curve that is very difficult for the trainer and the trainee, as options and the environment changed drastically from face-to-face training sessions. This paper deals with the methods and tools that can be used to make online education more interactive and consistent eliminating costs. All the tools and platform options discussed in this article are a free alternative for organizations that want to provide their employees training materials online without taking the high annual costs.

There are many ways to communicate and educate individuals in the classroom and virtual business arena. The encyclopedia of educational technology testifies to this abundance of means. Distance learning has been around in one form or another for over a hundred years. Correspondence courses, training files, radio, television, and more recently the Internet were a part of the history of distance education (Blake, Blackwell & Gibson, 2005). For the same reason, the online training can be done via e-mail, instant messaging, corporate Intranet, or on popular online platforms like Yugma, Lotus Sametime, Webex and Placeware (Ibm). While each program may be similar, the content, communication methods and ultimately will affect the employee’s success within the training program.

Comparing the quality of traditional training virtual training can arise many debates. These debates include not only the quality of training, but also the education and tools they need to provide quality education (Singh & Pan). Technological change may require that online education must go beyond sending text and PowerPoint slides (Kachel, 2005). The content must be designed into small manageable pieces that will hold student attention, providing effectively the content needed. Compared to traditional training, the learning environment offers an on-line area that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, regardless of the position of the learner. So every aspect of the interaction must be provided and examined in order to facilitate this process of continuous learning.

While many large institutions can justify these costs as the journey is not required, the same cannot be said for small businesses and nonprofit organizations. The lack of funding for a platform is only a cost associated with entering training materials on-line. Institutions must also pay for the programs that you will use to create the content. These can be simple programs like PowerPoint to deliver a presentation or more advanced programs like Camtasia to record the sound and the image captured by the screen designer. Additional programs like Webex, Elluminate, or GoToMeeting Yugma can also provide virtual meetings that offer both sound and Web camera functions.

In conclusion, the cost associated with providing a platform and the cost for employees with the training material online may be a factor, but not nearly as big a factor as the cost of not providing your staff with higher education. The questionable argument that suggest that the teaching style is a factor in the decision making process is whether or not the online tools will be used to improve employee training falls short in relation to the ability of an employee properly trained and educated. It’s my opinion that free alternative means of education that is offered completely online rivals with more traditional methods and less versatile of textbooks and classrooms.

Optimal capital structure

The capital structure is the mix of sources from which the long term funds required by a business can be generated, that is, what should be the proportion of equity, preference capital, internal implant sources and other sources of funds in total amount of capital that a company can generate for his work.

Is a picture of different types of financing used by a company to acquire the necessary resources for the operations and growth. Commonly, and consists of investments of shareholders (equity) and long-term loans (debt), but, unlike financial structure, there is no short-term loans (e.g. uncovered) and liabilities (e.g. commercial credit).

The capital structure is said to be the optimum structure when the company has chosen such a combination of equity and debt, so that the wealth of company is the greatest. At this the cost of capital structure is minimal and the market price per share is highest.

There are several schools of thought with regard to capital structure theories. The net revenue, Net Operating Income approach and the traditional approach are the three main methods used to calculate the optimal capital structure.

However, it is difficult to find good debt and equity mix where this would be good because it is difficult to measure with a fall in the market value of a share of shareholders ‘ equity due to the increased risk due to high content of debt in the capital structure.

I’m no expert in Locus rags (assignment help website). Locus is a leading education of education in India. Please, no need to put unnecessary comments on my article. Really I’d like to discuss useful comments. Will help me to learn more about the capital structure of my articles assignment help. But please discuss things only logic.

Can collect social security benefits based on your Ex-spouse's income?

Married couples can claim social security benefits through your own work record or their spouse work and earn the record when they reach certain thresholds of age. Many people do not realize that they may be able to claim benefits from a former spouse, even though they were divorced several years ago. The possibility of making a complaint does not require an attorney or reopening any settlement already finalized in the past or even contacting the former spouse. So, you have the right amount of insurance primary spouse ex (PIA), which is the amount that he or she has the right to claim normal retirement age at 50%.

This claim to the portion of the benefit does not reduce the benefit of the former spouse or current spouse may also qualify for spousal benefits. The application is independent of these relationships.

These requirements must be met in order to make a claim of success:

your former spouse currently entitled to receive social security or disability
You and your former spouse had been married for at least ten years before the divorce became final
are not currently married
You are age 62 or older and
you do not have the right to collect a retirement benefit or disability based on a PIA (the record) that is equal to or exceeds half of the pious of the ex-spouse.
If you are age 62 or older, and you have been divorced for at least two years, you can receive benefits immediately (based on earnings of your former spouse) regardless of whether the spouse chose to retire has filed an application for social security benefits. But be aware that it will reduce as much as the 25 per cent the benefit that you may have been entitled to receive based on your earnings record at full retirement age.

If your former spouse has died, you may be entitled to a benefit greater than that just described above. You must meet these requirements to qualify:

Your former spouse was entitled to social security benefits
You and your former spouse had been married to each other for at least ten years before the divorce is finalized
You are 60 years of age or more (or are aged between 50 and 60 and are disabled)
Currently I’m not married to
Not entitled to a pension benefit that is equal to or greater than 100 percent of the benefit of the deceased spouse.
If you meet the above conditions, you will get full benefit of the widow, which means you can collect an amount equal to 100 percent of PIA of the former spouse, not just a half. There is a reduction for each month you are under full retirement age. In other words, at the age of 60 years, the benefits will be 71.5% of PIA of deceased ex-spouse.
