  1. Having trouble how companies in 2019 are not grasping just how important social media and optics are to their bottom line...
  2. Does anyone have direct experience with accepting payments in India and China? (I'm located in USA). What platform have you used and how user-friendly has it been? Thanks in advance!
  3. I use Dragon Speaking Naturally 13 Premium. That being said, most computers these days have some sort of dictation application that will probably work for your purposes... Open the audio file, the text and dictation, and let the computer talk to itself. You'll need to go back through and edit with most sofware... That's why I like Dragon, it "learns". Also, you can usually find fairly affordable editors for this sort of thing on whatever outsourcing website you like.
  4. I'm not really into SEO, but I follow L2inc on YouTube and found this interesting... Can't vouch for their advice but it does sound very 101-ish... And as a consumer, I've definitely clicked on sites that have them specifically because they seem like good sources.
  5. Tough to say, but as I get older I'm starting to believe that timing has more to do with success or failure than just about any other single factor. But as pointed out above, FB is pretty entrenched... Usually, real change in dominant corporations has to come not only with sustained negative publicity that users care about, but also powerful attacks on the personal lives of the folks in the C Suite, to keep them off-balance and unable to fight back effectively-- RIM's Blackberry would have stood a much stronger chance against the iPhone if Apple, Google, and Samsung hadn't orchestrated a brilliant (and probably illegal) series of attacks on the personal lives of RIM executives.
  6. Look at the categories on Amazon. Those are "niches" of things people are actually buying. Broaden or narrow according to your goals.
  7. 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?
  8. 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...
  9. 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?
  10. I don't remember that one? ...But if nobody else wanted to pay for it... lol
  11. Hey everyone, where's the best place to get Royalty Free music for videos? Probably don't have to say it with this crowd but... Not "Free" just "buy and use without paying repeatedly"
  12. Yeah, I'm part of that tech-challenged group, and the idea of having to feel stupid talking to support activates my own "Nope!" reflex, haha... I will pay people who know what they are doing every single time before having to actually do any work myself, even if it means operating software that does most of the work for me!
  13. Ran several many years ago... Stopped because didn't know how to combat organized fraudulent click schemes. Haven't restarted for the same reason, but if there is a solution now I would definitely want to get back into it. These days anything that automates my work and frees up my time will get my attention!
  14. What about a second offer, that of a human who will run the software for them for $XX.XX every [unit of time]?
  15. LOVE!! seeing everyone's updates! You all are doing awesome!!! Start Goal: Absurdly great year so far... This string of projects has easily been the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I spent so much of my youth angry at things that, looking back on them now, just really didn't matter. I've been humbled and-- if I can borrow the word without it's religious connotations-- blessed to experience life with some of the most outrageously wonderful people on this planet, and in some small but important ways I have been able to help them set-up multiple small, robust, grass-roots type organizations that will endure long after we are all gone. Stop Goal: When I made this Stop Goal, I think it was meant as something much more tame, like not sugar-coating things for people in a way that left my opinions ambiguous to those unfamiliar with my particular sense of humor... but as this year has turned out, it was never realistic or appropriate. So many times this year my heart has been completely destroyed, utterly broken, my soul torn into an empty nothing, by witnessing the results of horrible experiences, and almost every single time it was my job to be strong because other people were suffering directly, and so much more... Other times my anger has been a ranging inferno begging to completely annihilate the despicable, disgusting human trash within striking distance of me that were, in fact, needed to accomplish things far more important than satisfying my emotional obsessions for revenge... I can unequivocally say that every single day this year I have lived a life worth more than all the previous years of my life combined. I cannot imagine that I will do anything else for the rest of my life, can't think of anything else worth what time I have left. I'm super-grateful once again to those of you who helped me through that dark time in my life a few years ago. Make sure the people you love, really, really know it.
