Online Business Made Easy at Multiply.com

Image
When the financial crisis hit the world in 2007, the effects were felt immediately, as big corporations struggled hard to stay afloat. The crisis' effects were even harder on the smaller businesses, which have no other means of support, unlike that of the larger companies. And if many think that this one is only limited to real word businesses, the online business scene also felt the crisis.

Indeed, while online businesses don't often transact physical goods, they do still rely much one the current financial system. Thus, they are still very much prone to the effects of the financial slowdown. And  just like the real world, there are also a lot of small scale businesses here that were greatly affected.

Thus, some online businesses are wondering as to how they can still maintain their competitive edge even with only a limited amount of resources. Luckily, there are several ways that one can use in order to maintain their site's edge over other, even with a small budget.

Reasons why everybody loves MELASON!

This is the first time that I've met; (personally, actually seen them on red carpets when attending movies or mall promotions) last night as they organized a Blogger's Night for the real and reel life partners - Jason Francisco and Melai Cantiveros which will test their charm onscreen for their biggest movie entitled, “The Adventures of Pureza: Queen of the Riles”!

Melai and Jason also known as MELASON casts as the major stars in the film. In fact, the Prinsesa ng Masa, Melai, gets the title role no less in what could be the birth of another ace comedienne. And the whole country couldn’t be any happier…

As Pura, Melai takes on the comedic role of a bubbly, caring, kind-hearted, very hardworking “dakilang ate” who wants nothing but only the best for her one and only beloved brother, Ulam, and uplift their dismal life. In all her endeavors, Pura’s best friend, Ruben (Jason Francisco), has always been by her side. Pura and Ruben then stumbles into a one-time big time opportunity to…

Excited on the newest gadget on town?

Google now introduces its new portable Chromebooks that is available today. If you are thinking what is the difference

between a chromebook and a notebook, TechRepublic discussed about some of the questions that consumers may ask about this latest from Google.

It is not just an ordinary laptop, Its a browser laptop?
The Chrome OS boots in about 8 seconds, according to Google, and sometimes faster in real-world tests. Once it boots, you log in with a Google account, and you’re inside the Chrome browser.

Passport to access: Google Account
Yes, you need to login first your Google account or sign in as Guest if you're using someone else's Chromebook. You can also create a separate Google account using non-gmail address. Once you get in, feel free to experience Chrome's bookmarks, extensions, settings and passwords.

Doubt in applications, systems and email accounts

[VIDEO] Cardio Boys versus Cherifer Mascot only at 10th Toycon

On the other side of the stage, yes, there were two stages at Toycon wherein panel discussion, games, trivia contests and band performances were held.

At the first day of Toycon, Cardio boys showed up on their aerobics costume and performed at the crowd area. Guests were very amazed and entertained.



Apparently, the mascot boy named "Cherifer" went up to the stage challenging the Cardio boys. It was a very hilarious Saturday and all of us were burst into laughter. Hey, Cherifer did a lot of stunts. And, he's one of our favorite mascot as of today :)



Other performances last Sunday were Moonlight Avery, Evening Tea Time, Himitsu Heiki and a guest local band; Novus Luna.

Cosplay Nation: The Crowd aka The Party People

This shot was taken few meters away from the stage. You can find decent and gorgeous photos through online or search for the keywords "Cosplay Nation," wherein live filming was took place at the Megatrade Hall 3 in SM Megamall. There were a lot of shots taken onstage, and the crowd enjoyed a lot.
Cosplayers were given a chance to showcase their unique style of 'pretending' and 'dressed up' characters from a movie, gaming, anime, and a lot more. Its a different world, as guests entered Megatrade Hall.

The two day cosplay contests were very successful, one of the biggest highlights of this year's 10th Anniversary of Toycon. Crowd were very excited to see their favorite characters and grab the chance to take photos with them.

Hotels are still in doubt to use Social Media

Image
Quoting from TravelClick: one of the leading provider of revenue generating solutions for hoteliers that conducted a survey few days ago about utilizing social media in hotel and booking campaigns said that,
"Instead of running cost-efficient promotions on social media channels like Twitter and Facebook, hotels are electing to increase their advertising spend through online advertisements (57 percent) and paid search advertising (20 percent)," said Jonathan Cherins, chief marketing officer of TravelClick, "It's important that hotels don't rely solely on advertising to increase bookings.  Hoteliers should be incorporating a mix of online marketing, GDS media as well as social media in order touch their key audiences."
Right, most hotels are still in doubt if social media will be a great help to boost their sales in booking and reservations, plus these kind of communication platforms like Twitter and Facebook has been flooded with unnecessary comments and compl…

Google officially launched its 'me on the web' section wherein you can include your profile visible on the net.
To set your Google profile, you need to logon using your Gmail Account and start working on the specific details that you would love to publicize.

If you're still taking care of your privacy, you can edit and limit the areas on which items you would like to be visible.

The new tool, as Google explains in its blog post today, seems in part to help clarify that:
Your online identity is determined not only by what you post, but also by what others post about you — whether a mention in a blog post, a photo tag or a reply to a public status update. When someone searches for your name on a search engine like Google, the results that appear are a combination of information you’ve posted and information published by others.
