Small Businesses: How To Connect To Your Customers On Social Media

Small businesses have always lived and died on word of mouth. When you’re first starting out, you need to build a reputation which allows you to compete with the big corporations despite their monetary advantages. In today’s world, the place to gain that reputation and to spread that word is the internet. Online reputation management is one of the most important factors to the success of a small business in the modern world. Where do you start, though? This article from Forbes has several tips.
The first step might be a little obvious–get a website for your company–but there’s far more to it than that. You need to secure your domain name, the domain names of your products and even possible misspellings of your company or product if you really want to be thorough. Above that, though, you need to make sure that you can secure your pages on the social media sites that your customers visit. Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram; you should have a page on all of the megasites that your customers are using, of course, but you might also want to spread out to smaller sites, or more business-focused sites. Blogger,,, yelp, wordpress, all of these sites can help expand your reach in the online world.

Having all of these pages is just the first step, though. Once you have them, you also need to make sure that you are engaging with your customers on them. This means both making sure that your customers can find them, and making sure that they are fairly active. Luckily, there are services that can be used and actions that can be taken to make this easier. The most effective is, of course, to hire someone to handle your PR online, but that isn’t always an option. When it isn’t, there are steps that you as the business owner, can take to make it all easier. To help customers find your business, you can learn simple techniques for search engine optimization (SEO), like making sure that your brands are mentioned on most every page of your site and making sure that there is content on them relevant to your customers. To help keep all of the pages active, there are services like IFTTT that can automate the posting between your various pages and help keep your pages active and your customers engaged!

Saving Freak Gives the FreedomPop Cell Phone Service a “Ringing Endorsement”

In their review of the wireless internet and cell phone service provider, “FreedomPop,” Saving Freak purchased one of their phones in order to test out the service. They do not reveal any specific details about the phone they bought, only saying that they chose the one with the lowest price offered, which was around $50. Their overwhelming sentiment is that FreedomPop is a “nice service to have” for “light users,” and that it “makes a lot of sense” for its niche cellular market.

What makes FreedomPop so appealing is that their most basic service is totally free, up to a set monthly limit, and is largely made possible by their use of VoIP through Sprint’s network of wireless hotpots, or through any other available nearby WiFi hotspot. VoIP stands for “Voice over Internet Protocol,” and because of this, it is sometimes referred to as an “internet phone.” Despite the “internet phone” moniker, phones using VoIP are assigned regular telephone numbers and can call any non-VoIP phone.

FreedomPop’s free basic service offers a monthly limit of 200 minutes for voice calls, 500 text messages, and 500 MB of data, with an option of upgrading to 1 GB of data with unlimited voice and text for just $19.99. They also offer a 12/Mbps home internet service via their “Freedom Hub Burst” device that can be purchased online for $89, and then used for a completely free internet connection anywhere with 4G LTE coverage. The free internet service has a cap of 1 GB per month, but can be upgraded to 5 GB for $17.99 per month, or 10 GB for $33 per month.

On their website, FreedomPop only sells 6 tablet computers: an iPad Mini, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 & 4, an LG G Pad in black or white, and their own “Freedom Tab Liberty.” The Freedom Tab Liberty is a decent slimmed down tablet for just $75, with the other tablets priced costing more, but only up to about $299. Because they use Sprint’s data network, FreedomPop will activate any Sprint device for use with their free or paid services.,2817,2427635,00.asp

The Importance of Studying the Kabbalah Teachings

A few millennia ago, a set of principles were passed down during a period of great revelation to humanity. The laws are meant to help human beings from all walks of life unlock life’s mysteries. The principles do not apply to a particular religion and are supposed to help connect with the person’s inner self in understanding the universe. Kabbalah is an ancient teaching that seeks to instill discipline in the people who follow and implement the lessons. It originated from Judaism and seeks to explain and define the nature of the universe and the relationship between the world and human beings. The word means to receive and is the study of how to efficiently gain fulfillment in life.

The teachings of Kabbalah are there to guide people on how life works in the universe for the betterment of human life. Many people around the world face challenges and sometimes defeat in getting to know and their purpose and are therefore not fulfilled. Despite the fact that at times we may try to understand the meaning of life and our place and purpose in the universe, this often eludes us. With mastering the teachings that Kabbalah has to offer, we get holistic fulfillment in different areas of our lives. These areas include our health, the career path we take in life and how it serves in fulfilling us, the relationships we forge and our general well-being. The teachings help us find fulfillment in these areas of our lives for a happier and healthy life. With the instructions, we can understand and appreciate these parts of our lives and how to deal with the pressure and challenges that come with health, relationship and career complications often.

Although the study of the Kabbalah was solely left to scholars and Jews, humanity is fortunate that people have taken the initiative to help pass this knowledge to better the world we live in today. The Kabbalah Centre was founded as a non-profit organization in 1984 to help in the teachings of the Kabbalah. The principles offered are not forced on the people who wish to practice the teachings but are taught to the students who have the discretion to implement the teachings in their lives.

Philip Berg founded it with the assistance of his wife Karen Berg with its headquarters in Los Angeles, California in the United States. The organization has different teachers who have been teaching the principles and improving the lives of the students. There are registered branches across the world including in New York, London and Toronto.

Dodd-Frank Creates A Safe Harbor For Whistleblowers

There is a new segment of employees not only in the government but also in the private sector today. This group is known by the unflattering name of “Whistleblower”. The term was obviously borrowed from the sports industry its use conjures up the image of a referee at a football or basketball game where the referee witnesses a rule infraction by one of the players and blows his whistle to penalize the team that made the “foul”. Today, however, because of the criminal acts that were commuted by the banks, mortgage companies, and brokerage firms that all but completely collapsed the financial system in America Congress enacted sweeping reform legislation. One, in particular, was the Dodd-Frank act which was enacted in 2010. One of the provisions of Dodd-Frank was a new whistleblower program that provided to the whistleblower powerful employment protection acts and monetary motivation to individuals that reported potential violations of federal securities laws to the Securities and Exchange Commission or as it is commonly known, the SEC.

As a response to this extraordinary legislation, the law firm of Labaton Sucharow established itself as the very first law firm in the country to establish a law firm that exclusively dealt with protecting and advocating for the SEC whistleblowers. Many people may wonder why this is even needed but when you think about it the answer of why becomes very clear. If you worked for a large investment firm and as an employee, you discovered your employer was robbing their clients blind or knowingly giving them false or misleading information just to make commissions how would you feel? Would you feel safe reporting these potential crimes to authorities? Of course, you wouldn’t, and that’s the reason Dodd-Frank was passed.

Labaton Sucharow has at its disposal a world class team of in-house investigators, monetary analysts, and forensic accountants with both federal and state law enforcement experience that will provide the best representation available for the whistleblower. In addition to the expert legal assistance available, Labaton Sucharow’s practice is led by a former Assistant Director and Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel of the Division of Enforcement of the SEC. This was done for only one reason, to make those companies that have been accused of wrongdoing to comply with the rules.

Additionally, under the rules of Dodd-Frank, the SEC is required to pay whistleblowers up to 30% of any money judgments collected as a result of a successful SEC enforcement action in which sanctions exceed $1 million dollars. It also prohibits retaliation by employers against employees.
