28 Sep 07 Advertising on MySpace

Off all the new innovations on the internet, the one that is most talked about is MySpace. Everyone is interested in MySpace, all for different reasons.

Those who participate in MySpace, which is no more than the internet equivalent of a village town square, MySpace provides web space for those who want to create their own websites, love the sense of community it brings. Observers love to watch the ‘village’ in action and are also potential buyers of products touted on the various sites. Those in the trade business, people with things to sell, have shown that it’s a brand new template for marketing material. Last are the advertisers, they are learning to love the enormous potential found in gathering crowds of like minds.

The reason why advertising on MySpace works is that it provides sellers with a location to find the right buyers. MySpace is designed as a community and the communities have developed around interests. So if 100 visitors are gathered at a particular site devoted to gardening for example, potential advertisers of gardening products have found their lock and key.

There are other plusses to advertisers in this new game. MySpace, unlike most other sites devoted to member like gatherings, does not charge a fee to post a site. This eliminates the typical overhead costs associated with marketing a product.

Advertisers are also offered the chance to use banner ads on various MySpace pages. This is a fee based service and does cost the advertiser money, but on the plus side, there are few opportunities which allow an advertiser to get as close to their target audience as one that MySpace provides.

In order to sell on MySpace it is best to follow the protocol of others. Products or services are most often sold subtly, through community forums on the site, which breeds good word of mouth. Those who have traditionally participated in MySpace are doing so because they want to network with others and are not there to buy or sell necessarily. But if the friends they meet on the site tout a product outright, creating sites, which sell that product make it easy for the product to move.

Providing services has also found a new and effective site in MySpace. The site can be used to help advance or publicize an event, can promote a song, anything that might be sold in the commercial marketplace has a place here.

It is interesting to note that MySpace has become popular with the enetertainment industry as a smart, cheap vehicle to promote new talents, this includes those in film and TV, as well as music and the arts.

23 Apr 07 Discover Enterprise 21: Distribution Software Solutions

In this modern, technological world where business transactions can reach into the millions and where buying in bulk is the thing to do, it can become difficult to keep track of your inventory and production. Additionally when you put that production on one side of a ratio for filling orders, which can be dozens if not hundreds at a time, you often slide right out of the realm where individuals can manage on their own. Fortunately technology can help in the form of distribution software, and Enterprise 21 has some of the best software that a company can find on the market today.

The distribution software from Enterprise 21 does more than just keep track of which orders you’ve received and which ones you’ve sent out, though it does that as well. This tracking program actually keeps tabs on everything at once, including; which orders you have yet to fill, the progress in filling orders, which orders have been sent out, what you currently have in inventory and what needs to be pulled from warehouses. This distribution software is like one, big electronic brain that you plug in to your business where it will show you all of your orders and where it will prioritize the dates that things have to be ready by.

Now it should be said that not all companies need distribution software. In fact many smaller companies, whose orders come from a handful of clients and which may be filled quickly and easily, likely don’t need this sort of help. Of course companies that meet that description likely don’t have a computer system that’s in charge of every aspect of distribution as well. On the other hand if a company has reached the point where it’s begun to split off into different departments, and all of those different departments need to work together like cogs in a machine to produce the necessary results and to get product to customers, then distribution software may become a necessity. And when your company has reached that point an all-inclusive software like the suite offered by Enterprise 21 is just the thing to make sure that you never miss a date and that you’re always on top of your business.

27 Dec 05 How To Reduce Fraud And Not Aleniate Customers Using Telephone Verification

Using telephone verification, online merchants can help prevent fraud and the associated reversal of charges from a customer’s credit card issuer. Any online company that sells large ticket items has to wonder if a new customer who wants his or her order expedited to another address is a criminal or just a generous person who forgot a birthday.

Merchants have to balance the need to avoid expensive chargebacks, where a person claims that his or her credit card was used to make a purchase without their permission, with the need to process orders quickly. Automatic phone verification allows merchants to see, in real-time, key information about customer’s phone numbers that can help detect fraudulent orders quickly.

Merchants can avoid alienating legitimate new customers by letting the customer know that by placing an order, they may receive a phone call or SMS before the order ships. If this is worded so the customer gets the impression the company cares about preventing fraud, it will not alienate a legitimate customer. Criminals will use their own phone number, which will not match the address on the credit card, thinking they can pass the fraud check. A phone verification service that identifies the location associated with the phone number, even if it is a pre-paid phone or a pager number, is needed to catch these crafty criminals.

Merchants are not the only companies that can benefit from phone verification services. Financial institutions, social networks, auction services and other businesses can request customers enter a phone number and then receive an automated call giving the customer a pin number. The customer must enter the pin in order to make any changes to his or her online account.

Any company that does business online has a duty to protect their customers from fraud. A failure to do so is not only expensive and time-consuming; customers whose accounts were accessed by another person without permission are unlikely to continue to do business with the company that let it happen. A company that gains a reputation for lax fraud controls becomes a target for criminals. If this happens, the negative publicity that ensues can greatly affect the company’s bottom line.

Phone verification services are a cost-effective, non-intrusive way for companies with an online presence to reduce fraud without alienating legitimate customers.
