People start businesses by taking loan money from banks, friends or SBA (Small business administration). It’s a usual case, but I got to tell you something, it isn’t the right thing to do at all. In fact if you start your business by loan money, you put yourself and your family in jeopardy. One of the basic things to understand when starting up a business is that you have to HAVE ENOUGH CASH IN YOUR ACCOUNT TO START A BUSINESS, no matter huge or miniature, as money is the first thing that is required to start a business.
What happens when you take loans from banks or lenders and unable to pay them back on time, the lender is likely to call in the loan or refuse to renew it for another year, Often new small business owners then have to take out home equity loans or use their credit cards to pay off their loans which puts their home and credit rating at risk. So you should make sure that you have enough cash in hand (of course it should not be from a loan) then put your feet in the business world.

When you step into a new business, you have to take care of all the business loans, taxes and the money owed to suppliers and landlords. Here, it is the capital that plays the part in keeping you away from all the difficulties. What you have to understand is that a newly established business needs time to get you revenue, sometimes it takes moths, sometimes years.

Being patient till you save enough capital is the key for safely starting up a business which would be a definitely a successful one.

Dealing with Spamming has become our daily activity. There would be no one who doesn’t receive spam in his e-mail box. Whether it’s a bourgeoisie or a multi billionaire business man, one way or other he has to encounter these spamming e-mails no matter how much security he puts on his inbox. Now, Let’s talk about what is spam and why and how it is done?

What is spamming?
When a company or an individual sends out advertisements in bulk mailing, no matter if you have agreed to receive these offers or not, this is called spamming.

Why it is done and what are the types of Spamming?

Spamming is done for different purposes;

1. To promote a particular company’s name or product (by evoking the emotions or excitement of the readers).

2. To take out personal information of the reader, which can be for any reason let it be for future blackjacking or just to get some money by fooling someone.

3. To get people click on some advertisements so the spammers can get paid via PTC (PTC is a program through which you can get paid just if people click on your installed adds on a website or a blog).

What do the spammers get and why do people get into spamming trap?

The answer for this one is real simple; MONEY, MONEY and more MONEY! How? I just mentioned that in the previous lines.

Who falls in the spammers trap?

The ratio of people who get scammed, or just get to pay some money for a piece of crap product over the internet (which many times don’t even exist!) is very low, but there are people who believe in these spamming emails. These are those people who are usually new to internet and don’t know what exactly spam is and how much damage it can do to them. Many times people even give away their credit card numbers or social security numbers which cost them some good trouble about which they never imagined of.

What is the solution or, How to be saved from this annoyance?

Well, there are no set rules or pre requisites to stay away from spam. However you may follow the following points if you want to be saved from those spammers out there as much as you can;

• Do not open the mails that you receive in your mail box’s spam folder, especially those ones that have images attached to them, until or unless you recognize the sender or there e-mail id.

• If you receive any suspicious e-mails in your inbox, mark them spam by clicking on the SPAM button without opening them.

• Every Email service comes with spam filtration options that lessens the spamming emails. You may change your spam setting by going to your mail box settings option to set the level of security you want (but you have to remember that putting your mail box on a higher extent of security will allow some of your important and legit emails to the spam folder too).

If you don’t want to lose your sleeps, you better be aware of spam and all of its hassles.

Just to search about your target buyers so that you have a thorough knowledge about the demographics about your customers like age and income. That’s not enough! You need to seriously think on what will motivate people to buy your products so that you can transmit your messages accordingly.

Endorsement from High Profile People:

Expert endorsement is the best way to enhance your brand such as; a movie star, a tech wizard etc. So consult those big personalities who can easily fuel up your brands. It can be a little difficult to reach them, therefore, you will need special marketing for this purpose.

For instance, Chrissy Azzaro, who is a fashion designer setup My-Tee- casual wear, some years ago. Azzaro paid to join star-studded Bazaar that was hosted by a company “Backstage Creations”. The charges of Backstage Corporation were up to $10,000 in order to join TV award shows for behind the scene gatherings and other special events. In this way marketers easily got access to the celebrities to have a chat after the show where these celebrities were given gift bags with expensive My-Tee tops. The catch here is that celebrities will not only wear these brands but also people will see them wearing, eventually boosting the company’s sale volume. Soon after that famous pop singer Nelly Furtado were seen wearing My-Tee top. It resulted in stories about My-Tee in media like Los Angeles Daily News, etc. Azzaro become famous in a very short span of time!

Attract Hot Prospects Attention:

Search for the annual shows that consist of your top customers. Hire a speechwriter to construct newsworthy presentations. You can also consult a marketing firm to develop unique ways to market your products and services. Try to make an everlasting and memorable impression at high profile shows and places.

Attract Public Relations Pros Towards Open Markets:

There are variety of local, small industry media and press that can boost your brand up high but it is better that you hire the services of public relation agency to do this work. Just like Jamey Bennett latest enterprise lightwedge promotes personal reading light.
