  3. Problem I have with all this Read Aloud schwango is how it never sounds too zackly like Moi. I tried Dragon Natchrlly Speakin' a while back — an it made evrythin' I said sound like frickin' gibberish. My solootion? Call Granma over. She read so sweet when you were a kid, so why should automation consign her to a lonesum misery existence filled only with tryin' to dig out her teeth from behind the sofa with a spatula? Tellya, fix Granma up with sherry, mebbe a pipe fulla tobacco smells like burned cardigans, an' she will read most anythin' out loud — even porno. "I got plenty empty nests to fill — so for sure I can distinguish my colons from my semicolons!"
  4. So, this is a feature that I've really been looking for in a text editor. It really improves your ability to edit content because if you read it your own writing, you have a tendency to be blind to your own grammar errors. I find that it's a lot easier to fix grammar mistakes, if you listen to the words being spoken back to you. The feature is hidden away under the review ribbon. There are obviously other solutions, but I think it's really nice that it's built right into Microsoft word now.
  5. Look at the categories on Amazon. Those are "niches" of things people are actually buying. Broaden or narrow according to your goals.

  7. If you can publish great content to your networks, you did the right thing. But in my opinion SEO can be very helpful and in many cases useful for your social network.
  8. 1. "Now I promise not to say it was you who told, but who do you know that could use my service? Promise, I will never tell it was you." 2. "A mutual friend, who asked not to be named, referred me to you, said that you need my help also." 3. "No, I won't say who it was, I understand, but would rather lose your business than break my word." After the sale: 4. "No, still can't tell you, but aren't you glad they recommended me? Now, who are you going to recommend, with my same vow of silence?" ....Something like that. Not my original idea, but I've used it with great success for many, many years.... Forgot where I learned it, probably a book or an old Closer... Claude?
  9. I've had GoDaddy do that to me. They're still holding a domain hostage that I forgot to renew. It's been 4 years? That being said, I was wanting to purchase a domain for a client of mine and it was taken. 3 years later, I get an email that the domain is going to become available within a week. They had it listed as 'make an offer'. I looked it up on Who Is and saw that it had expired already. Anyhow, I know some registrars give you like 3 months-ish to get it back at a higher price then it goes back to the normal price. If no one renews it (shows interest) in buying it, they'll usually let go of it. That's what happened with this domain. I bought it at regular price. You can try ICANN, too. I've also used Namecheap with no problems but I'm not sure if they spy and buy, too. Good luck Mike!
  10. Thanks Mike... Yeah I've asked a few other places and other than being warned not to search on Go Daddy, haven't gotten much more than that. I'm torn between not wanting to miss out on having the domain and not wanting to be ripped off...
  11. I'm not familiar with any way to monitor the price other than to pull it up at a registrar. I'm also not really sure if there is a time period after which you can expect to see the price drop. I've never heard anyone say that. I kind of always just assumed the price was the price, but I guess it makes sense. If it goes for a year or so and nobody buys it, why wouldn't they drop it?
  12. A domain I've wanted for over a decade recently became available, but the asking price is absurdly high-- $12000 and the entire niche is likely not worth that much online. In the past I've seen this happen, domains expire and the price is ridiculous for a while before dropping down to a reasonable price, but I've never timed it or paid much attention to how long that takes? Also, I've heard rumors that searching for a domain can keep its price artificially high, especially on certain dealers? Is there a tool or method that I can use to monitor it?
  13. Yes, Facebook PPC has become the market trend it provides better returns than other platforms. If you use the Facebook platform with a strategical way for business then it can be exceptionally good for your business.
  14. As per my experience the important transition that comes out from B2C to B2B marketing are as follows: Social media strategy changes drastically Lead nurturing is key B2B marketer needs to inform You need to deal with small marketers
  15. Thanks SO much Mike! One particular client admitted she has a really hard time asking for reviews. I asked her to do it (for her new site I'm building), and the customers promptly responded. I think that alone helped to ease her fears. What's so funny about this woman is she's been an agent for a very long time, has a stellar career and everything 'online' about her is SOOO DATED! She's trusting me to get her current on not only her website, but social media and everything else. This was a long process, getting her to finally trust me and I want to shine for her. Great idea about the GMB, too! Thanks! She has 4 'pending' homes right now, so it's a perfect time to get her set up to ask for the reviews.
  16. I wouldn't try circumventing Zillow's rules. If Zillow caught that, they might think you are trying to post fake reviews. I'm not sure what action they would take, but other similar platforms will typically remove ALL reviews and/or ban the person completely. You don't want to get your client removed from Zillow. Honestly, I would bet a lot of home buyers and sellers already have accounts on Zillow. Not all of them, but I bet a lot do. You have to sign up to get alerts and use different features. The whole "clients don't want to sign up" thing sounds like an excuse from the agent for being afraid to ask for the reviews. On top of that, both Realtor and Zillow let you sign in with your Gmail account, which many people have these days. There is basically zero effort in creating an account. It's already done. It's literally a one-click sign up. And if you know they have a Gmail account, you can also encourage them to leave a review on GMB. If they don't have a Gmail account, they can do the same thing with a Facebook account, which pretty much everyone has. Roughly 90% of the closings I have been to have had a lot of down time. They never start on time. There is always a few minutes where someone needs to go make a copy of something or whatever. If the real estate agent is sitting there with them, that would be the perfect time to ask. They can do it right on their cell phone. If not then, I would send a follow up email a few days after closing. It should be personalized. Not some boring template. Then at the end it can have standard copy that talks about the importance of reviews and the appropriate links.
  17. No, I don't think that if you have poor performance for your Facebook ads and you are not getting likes, shares, comments then you can't get better conversion. For the better conversion, you have made the best strategies to win the Facebook ad competition.
  18. I don't think Facebook is a light-year ahead of Adword. As Facebook has more than 2.38 billion users it is the number one social media channel. Facebook provides the best targeting option for ads to target your audience and it also provides a better conversion than Google ads.
  19. I have a few questions about reviews, please. This involves real estate agents. Most often, their clients have no problem sending them a review to use. What they do have a problem with, is having to sign up/register an account for sites like Zillow and Realtor.com (and the likes). As an agent, you cannot submit your customer's reviews yourself, they have to do it. It's understandable on their part, they're trying to keep it real. However, clients are reluctant to sign up for 'this and that' just to leave the reviews. I don't blame them, it's time consuming and now they're on yet another mailing list they really don't need. That being said, I'd like to boost the star ratings for my clients in those sites. What do you all recommend? There is a link in Zillow that you can send a request to said client. I could take the review and use on of my own emails to submit it. I would have to have the address of said property. I'm not sure their clients would be comfortable with their address being 'out there' and their info being connected to it. Heck, even after you submit a review, the review itself goes into 'review' until approved. What do you recommend here? As worthless as Zillow is, as far as accuracy, many buyers rely on things like the agents star rating. Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!! ~ Theresa
  20. I'm on the it's too late side of this.
  21. Steven W. I believe is who you were referring to.
  22. Good question. Perhaps the answer lies in the title "forensic accountant". Perhaps they dug deep into every line item in GE's statutory reports, whereas most investors and the journalists that cover the markets only focus on the headline figures. It'll be interesting to see what comes out of this whatever the truth is.
  23. I don't remember that one? ...But if nobody else wanted to pay for it... lol
  24. I was reading some about this story and what I cannot figure out is how Harry Markopolos and his team got their information. They are not part of an official government organization, so they don't have subpoena power. How did they piece this together and nobody else did? I don't really want to go through the 175-page report to figure it out. The guy was right about Madoff, so he certainly has some credibility.
  25. Facebook is a great marketing platform if you use this platform with the right strategy then you can explore your business and get the new audience for the business and without the Facebook ads, it will not profitable way to reach your large audience. The Best Facebook ads Guides are as follows: 1. Develop Your Strategy First 2. Choose Your Objective 3. Target Your Audience 4. Choose Where You Want Your Ad To Be Displayed 5. Set Your Budget 6. Choose Your Ad Format 7. Don’t Forget the Details 8. Monitor Your Ads Carefully
  26. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/madoff-whistleblower-claims-ge-committing-accounting-fraud-131211577.html Perhaps it's too late. I see the share price is down over 12% in today's trading so far.
  27. I know in a couple of Facebook groups I am in, people were saying last month that tons of their GMB's got taken down. The spam complaint form seems to be working as intended. That local lead generation model is going to get a lot harder.
