How to Get It: Customer service is the biggest work-at-home field, with companies including Spiegel, Hilton, Best Western, HSN, 1-800-FLOWERS and many others using at-home reps. Fill out an application with staffing companies such as Arise, Alpine Access, VIPdesk, LiveOps, and Convergys, all of which vet the companies who are hiring through them. If you need benefits, search through a staffing company that will hire you as an employee (Alpine Access, VIPdesk and Convergys do this) rather than an independent contractor. If you're a contractor, you may be asked to pay a small fee (between $15 and $35) for a background check. While a fee can be a sign of a scam, independent contractors are responsible for their own expenses.
Advertisers on Madison Avenue have spent billions researching and determining where consumers with various characteristics gather and what they spend their time doing so they can better target their messages. They do it because reaching a group of 65+ year old women with commercials for extreme sports equipment is known to be a waste of money, while reaching an 18-30 year old male demographic that attends rock-climbing gyms is likely to have a much higher ROI.
Just like a customer testimonial or product review can help to build trust in your company, your brand, and your product, they can also help to boost engagement. Watching someone demonstrate how your product or service improved their efficiency or solved their problem is so much more believable (and memorable) than just reading an article about it.
7. Techniques of contrast, perspective and colors for the design appropriate to the meaning of the subjects. You do not have to be an artist in order to be able to use their effects in general. Contrasts create a realistic impression and any perspective promises a future. Hot colours from red to yellow are attractive and giving a welcome to the visitors, but also give an impression of restlessness. Green is “the perfect” color – it expresses positive emotions like stillness, hope… Opposite colors like yellow and purple, green and red or blue and orange give meaning of difference. When colors are similar (like yellow, orange, pink, red) they give meaning of diversity. These three general techniques of contrast, perspective and colours can combine in many different ways in order to correspond to the texts. The combination between these techniques and the meaning creates a strong harmony.
After you've determined the type of music you need, it's time to start analyzing potential songs. Consider the song's pacing. Songs with a steady rhythm are easy to change to suit your video style. Hoping to include your favorite, Top 40 hit? Popular, radio songs are usually structured in 4-5 parts and can be difficult to transition. Try to choose simple songs that are easy to loop. If you're looking for an instrumental song, be sure to find something that was recorded with real instruments. Songs made with digital samples can make your video feel unprofessional and out of date.
I just read half of this post and noticed that I have previously implemented several of these suggestions into my website.  However, I am such a beginner on this topic that I have a question and hope somebody can help me out with it.  The theme I uploaded to my wordpress blog has a link already installed in it for the 'RSS FEED.'  From what I understand, the 'RSS FEED' is basically a way for visitors to subscribe to receive any updates posted to your website.  How do I know if it is set up properly or not?

Bloggers, publishers and site owners of every variety in the web world love and hate to be compared and ranked against one another. It incites endless intrigue, discussion, methodology arguments and competitive behavior - but, it's amazing for earning attention. When a blogger publishes a list of "the best X" or "the top X" in their field, most everyone who's ranked highly praises the list, shares it and links to it. Here's an example from the world of marketing itself:
I have been working on building my blog for 3 years now and since I have decent readerhsip now, I am thinking of inviting guest posts. However, I have been wary of duplicate content as I think most guest bloggers will try to reuse the content they write on other sites too as it is a time consuming task. How big of a problem this really is? Should I worry about it? It will be good to hear from others.
I have to say though, that (like the comment above) my favourite one was #22. Just when my brain was a little frazzled, seeing (and I mean actually visually seeing) your wife's success with her Everywhereist blog is so encouraging! If you've got something to say all you want is for people to hear it and join in the conversation and there's so many of us out there waiting to connect. It's really inspiring.
