Your Online Internet Marketing Business and the Value of Time

Imagine there’s a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day, every evening the bank deletes any part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Would you draw out every last cent, of course you would! Each of us has such a bank and it’s name is TIME. Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds, every night it rights off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose, it carries over no balance, it allows no overdraft.

Each day it opens a new account for you, each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the days deposit, then the loss is yours, there’s no going back, there’s no drawing against the tomorrow, you must live in the present on today’s deposits. Today invest your time to get the utmost in health, happiness and productivity, make the most of today.

*To realise the value of one year ask a student who failed a grade.
*To realise the value of one month ask the mother who gave birth to a premature baby.
*To realise the value of one week ask the editor of a newspaper.
*To realise the value of one hour ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
*To realise the value of one minute ask the person who missed the train.
*To realise the value of one second ask the person who avoided the accident.

Treasure every moment, treasure every moment you’ve got, treasure it more because you spent it with some one special, special enough to spend your time with. Remember time waits for no-one, yesterday is history, tomorrow’s a mystery. Today’s a gift, that’s why they call it the present. Make a difference today, what you do counts!

So next time you need to work on your internet or home business and you think about putting it off till tomorrow, just remember those lost seconds at the end of the day, just remember their not credited tomorrow but lost for all time. Using those seconds today just may be the seconds that make all the difference to your business this week.

Continuous Contact – Business Email Marketing and Its Software

Do you have your own business? If you do, then you know the importance of business email marketing. Whether your business is big or small, you still need to do it. This way, you can keep your clients abreast to what’s new. It also gives them a chance to know how and where to contact you.

Business email marketing is a kind of direct marketing. It makes use of electronic mail or email. It speaks commercial or fundraising messages to your clients. In its widest sense, every email that you send to current or possible clients is deemed as business email marketing.

There are many reasons why you should do this type of marketing. Firstly, it is cheaper than other kinds of advertising. You can drum up business automatically with it. Also, more than half of the internet users typically open up their email accounts. Email messages are also very easy to track. Delivery time for an email is shorter too.

However, how can you manage email marketing on top of your other tasks? You can do that by having your own software. Email Marketing Software is a computer application. It is able to mail out bulk email to your target audiences. With it you send newsletters or promotional materials to lists of subscribers.

Email marketing software usually comes with a database. This database keeps your message history and your company’s campaign statistics. It keeps a list of your client’s contact information too.

The software’s interface has all the elements that you need to run an email campaign. This includes message sending, contact entry, contact importing, and reporting.

There are a lot of these kinds of software available in the market. You need to find one that is the perfect fit for you. One that does not have monthly and set-up fees or contracts are the best choice. They will be less of a hassle to handle. Plus, you only need to pay once, too.

Great marketing software is one that has all that you will need to create, send, track and profit from. However, its features should not end there. It should also have practical and user-friendly features that totally automate your follow up marketing as well.

The software should have an email archive that prolongs the life of your promotion. It should also have an image hosting feature. This will enable you to store thousands of pictures that the clients can look at. This way, they will be able to see real-time pictures of your products.

You have to be careful though. Email marketing software can also be used to send unsolicited email. Your clients will not like that. If you do it, you will lose more clients than you gain.
