Free T-Shirt printing allows a customer to act as a free billboard for any business, such as a discount carpeting business. The discount carpeting company prints up a number of shirts using the free T-shirt printing site, and then distributes at either conventions or to customers, and the shirts act as advertising for the discount carpeting company. As long as the company bears in a mind a few basic rules, the free T-shirt printing should give them some business, especially in the short term.

The T-shirt needs to display the discount carpeting company’s website, preferably so that it is quickly apparent. Potential customers will only get to see the shirt for a few seconds so it does not help if the website is hidden or takes too long to find. Also, it needs to be witty or otherwise memorable enough for someone to become interested in the shirt; this applies equally to viewers as well as well as those wearing the shirt, who must have a reason to wear it where people will see it. After all, people tend to wear shirts that make them look good, and if it is just advertising, then it is just a shirt to wear when you don’t plan on going anywhere. In essence, make the site obvious and the shirt something fun to wear, and it will not be seen but also acted upon by potential customers, making the T-shirt a viable advertising medium. At the very worst, you may end up selling the shirt itself, and that is not a bad side business.

What’s Not To Like About How You Tackle Social Media?

Everyone has their own opinion of what Facebook is for depending on what they’re using it for at the time you ask them. Mostly it’s to keep in touch with friends and see what they’re up to, either generally or later on in the week. But of course it has to be paid for and monetizing a site is going to attract advertisers and business, hence Facebook becoming a passive marketing platform. Passive in that you have to wait for your customers to come to you and then friend them up, approaching people en masse is a sure no-no because, when you strip everything else away Facebook is a social media platform, invented for friends to connect, not to be hijacked by big business as just another tool to get their message in front of as many eyes as they can. If they are able to through outreach and brand loyalty that’s fine but there are also many mistakes being made when it comes to the business-social interface.

Often those who claim to know what social media is about make declarations like “connect with your consumers” and “get involved with the conversation” where they basically mean introduce yourself and then start plugging your product. What they mean to say is offer solutions to your friends’ problems, isn’t that what friends do? These experts know what they mean but they get so caught up in trying to be brief and encapsulate theories in Vox pops that they lose their message.

People think that the high numbers are the important ones, having thousands of friends is what really counts right? Getting thousands of likes and mentions is what it’s all about surely. But what’s the real story? You might have numbers but are you really engaging? Are your friends and customers just clicking on you out of habit or are they really receiving your message? How can you tell? Well, look at the conversations on your wall, find out if other people are setting up fanpages, how busy are they? Don’t just look at a rock and think “that’s a big rock” take a look under the rock to see what sort of life there is down there.

It doesn’t much matter what your product is or who your demographic are if you’re not ‘down with YOUR kids’ they’re not going to bite. Whether those ‘kids’ are the mothers of teenage boys or the teenage boys themselves simply mirroring them isn’t going to wash. If you try too hard to be ‘down’ with them you won’t look cool or part of the group, you’ll look like you’re trying too hard and people will start ignoring you.

That trying too hard can be carried over into exceeding your reach when it comes to the number of networks you try to get engaged in. Spreading yourself too thin means that you won’t be able to react if and when things start moving. When you build a following go for quality not quantity, quality always shows.

Another thing that people do wrong when they’re looking at social media is to treat it in the same way as they used to look at traditional broadcast media, that is, that it is mono-directional. You broadcast your message and people buy your product. Again, stop thinking that way! This is SOCIAL! If your ‘friends’ have something to say listen and reply/learn from their input. They might be loyal to you but they can always migrate, show them that you care what they think.

Close proximity to home

The closeness of these positions is one of the most important benefits. The current economy has made it difficult for many to commute. With this in mind, local companies and businesses could be the answer you are looking for. The proximity of these companies is inviting to many applicants.

Opportunities to advance

Oftentimes local companies are small in size. This typically means less competition for work. If this is the case, you may find opportunities to advance with the company. This is what many job seekers are looking forward to. Good outlooks for the future will attract many people to local opportunities.

A regular income

Those who have been unemployed for a long time are simply looking for a regular income. These are often people who have financial obligations to consider. Some have found that local companies pay less than previous positions. Earning a smaller income is better than earning no income at all.

If you allot the time that you spend wisely, you can see a high return on only a small investment of time.

– Blogging is also simple and easy. Bloggers do not need any particular education or training in order to be successful. If you are a good communicator and a relatively efficient typer, you will find that blogging comes naturally. But remember that to make money at blogging, you need to keep people coming back to your blog, so make sure you have something to say and that you say it well.

– Research the different ways to monetize the blog you write. Programs like Bidvertiser and Adsense, by Google, offer pay-per-click options that reward you when visitors to your blog click on ads on the page. You can also link to affiliate programs and make money off of that as well. Compile names and email addresses, and you may have a list that you can sell.

– Use an RSS feed. With these feeds, readers can subscribe to the blog you write, and get updates whenever you post something new. If you build a large subscriber base and link them all to an RSS feed, the number of people clicking on ads will grow as your readership does, exposing your writings to more and more Internet readers and making the payday bigger for you.
