By Lewis Bennington

As the economy tightens and Internet use grows home based businesses are constantly heralded as the saving grace. But getting the facts about which home based businesses make money is tough. As you review the possibilities keep a few checkpoints in mind.

Will the company share a clear set of rules and regulations? Does the company have a clear return policy or guarantee? Are tax policies, and your status as it relates to those policies, clear? If these checkpoints pass the company is probably legitimate. So which home based businesses make money? Many of them can be profitable! Take advantage of them all!

It is best to remove yourself from the idea of working for a single company and seek out several with which to do business. This creates multiple income streams.

As a business owner you are now in control of how and when you work. Simply be realistic about your limits. Here is a list of businesses that are typically real money makers.

Writing everything from articles to advertising, ezine content, website copy and more. Find companies that have steady work so you can build a relationship and continue business.

Virtual call centre agents earn an hourly fee as high as $50 an hour.

Selling products and services through websites and affiliate marketing programs. Once initial set up is complete, refine your offers to match your customer’s feedback and increase your income.

All these require research and work. Don’t be unrealistic about home based business… it is still business… but home based businesses make money and you can succeed if you persist.

How to Download Music to Iphone

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

Author: Robert

If you’re lucky enough to own an Iphone, you are probably going to want to know how to download music for it. The iPhone is the gadget that everyone wants this year-and who doesn’t want to be able to carry around their music collections, their movies, and even their internet connection with them? Not to mention the fact that it’s primarily a cell phone.  

Iphone music

In order to download music to your Iphone, there are a few things that are necessary. The first of which is a computer, obviously with an internet connection, and you will also need the right kind of lead to connect the Iphone to the computer. As well as those things, the most obvious thing is that you need somewhere to download from.

As far as computer technology goes, any average modern computer should be up to the task, providing it’s not older than say 8 or 10 years. Unfortunately an internet connection as old as that probably won’t do the job for you-the connection speed is quite important, so you may want to obtain the fastest internet speed possible in your area if you plan to download a lot of music. The older/slower connections will most likely work fine, but it can take a severe amount of time to download anything with a slow connection like this.

The first thing you need to do to actually download some music, is to find a reputable site, and then download files to the computer first. At this time, it is not possible to download them straight to the Iphone. Previously, most downloaders have been using peer to peer, or P2P sites to get their downloads. You probably should know that using these sites is illegal. Not only that, but many of them are riddled with viruses and spyware and other harmful things. P2P sites are one of the main ways that hackers release viruses into the world.

These days you have some much better and safer options. There are a lot of sites around these days that will offer you unlimited musical downloads for a one off fee. The fee is usually less than $50, and will allow you free movie and game downloads too. These sites are my recommended way to download music to Iphone.

Hopefully this article has let you put the pieces of the puzzle together so you can enjoy Iphone music downloads.

Article Writing and Submission Tips For the Writer

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

By Chris Kennelly

A problem will arise if you write your article like a sales or marketing brochure, as it will most likely to be rejected by the directory or directories you have selected for article submission because of that very reason.

As mentioned, when writing an article the writer is subject to certain rules and regulations, which will inevitably affect the article submission process. When your article is viewed by editors or potential readers do not want to be bombarded with useless sales information that they are not interested in, they would rather prefer professional and helpful information that may help them. Therefore one should keep your sales information on your website in your web content. By attempting to submit this type of sales copy will result in the article being rejected.

Stick to the subject that you are providing for your reader, leave your links for the resource area of your article, where it belongs, this is one of the main reasons that articles are rejected, there are to many people that lay links in the body of the article which results in the article being rejected. Stay with your desired subject and what you intend to convey to your readers, you will have a better chance of enticing the reader to come through to your website if you provide valuable useful information that can serve as a reference to your expertise in that field. Within the article submission process, by retaining focus and professionalism allows for fewer potential problems to creep in and the chance of publication is increased.

Once you have your written work and are preparing for article submission, there are certain processes and formats that you should keep in mind. Some directories require that a specific format be utilised or article submission is done through a specific software program. The following general tips should help when submitting your article to the directories.

Before submitting please familiarize yourself with all criteria pertaining to the specific directory, this will avoid any misunderstandings or frustration later on in the article submission process.

Pay attention to the editorial guidelines as published by the directory, once again to avoid disappointment of going through the article submission process and then not having the article published. Editorial content of your article should not be plagiarized; there are online tools to assist with this, one that springs to mind is copyscape. The article should not contain direct sales or marketing messaging, it should not promote racial or religious hate or persecution, and definitely no pornographic or adult material content. Correct structure and simple punctuation rules should be followed. These are just a few basic tips for you in article submission; rather establish the exact requirements so that you are fully aware of the processes.

Although the article submission process sounds fairly comprehensive, once you get used to the rules and required format, it becomes second nature, as they say practice makes perfect. Take the time and make the effort to correctly formulate and structure your article prior to submitting to ensure both smooth submission and publication of your article.

I hope your enjoyed this article.

5 Ideas For Cheap Cruise Travel Deals

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008
by Sck

By CJ Anderson

Everyone wants to travel the world, right? How does a luxury cruise sound? Warm beaches, exotic ports of call, fine dining, 5 star service, hammocks and fruity umbrella drinks. Who could resist?

Course there is one small issue - the outrageous prices that put the dream of a cruise vacation out of reach for 90% of people. But there is hope. I am here to help you find the absolute best cruise travel deals. Wholesale prices, incentive cruises, and even the occasional F.R.E.E voyage are in the bag of tricks. My goal is to show you how to plan, find, book, and enjoy the cruise vacation of a lifetime on a shoestring budget whether it is your first cruise or your tenth.

Be sure to check out this month’s top hints, insider secrets, and tricks the travel industry does not want you to know about how to get a fantastic cruise travel deal.

Here are 5 ideas to get you started on finding the cheapest cruise bargains:

1) Go Off-Season

Everyone and their brother is planning a cruise in the spring or early summer. Think spring break and that’s where you will find the crowds. The cruise industry is not going to offer any good cruise travel deals during their busy season because they simply don’t have to. Expect a 20-30% cheaper fare for off-season cruises.

BONUS: Airfares will also be cheaper during the less-traveled months saving you an additional chunk of money.

2) Consider Repositioning

These cruises are heavily discounted because the cruise line is simply moving the boat from one home port to another. They have to take that trip regardless of how many passengers sign up. You will get a few less ports - but if you are true cruise lover, the extra days at sea will be no great burden. You can expect to save 40-60% on a price per day basis over regular cruises.

3) Skip the Flight

Most cruises in the US originate from Florida and California, but did you know that dozens of other ports of embarkation (where you leave from) are available? Unexpected places like New Orleans, Houston, Seattle, New Jersey, and even Mobile, AL offer a few cruise itineraries a year. If you can hitch a ride from somewhere within easy driving distance, how much will you save? Anticipate travel to and from the embarkation port costs to drop easily $1000 for a family of 4.

BONUS: Also, you will not have to worry about hotel on either side of the cruise in this scenario.

4) Last Minute Savings

Often if your schedule is flexible, good cruise travel deals can be had in the last 2 months leading up to departure. Think about it - the boat is going, overhead is relatively fixed, so empty staterooms cost the cruise lines big bucks that can never be recovered. Sign up for email newsletters (cheapcruises.com, vacationstogo.com, and travelzoo.com are my favorites) so you will get priority notification of cruise travel deals.

5) Speak and Cruise

If you’ve ever been on a cruise, you know there is a an endless array of entertainment and educational opportunities on board. Everything from underwater basket weaving, to painting classes, to seminars on wine tasting. Did you know that each of those presenters AND their family get a complimentary cruise in exchange for a couple of 1 hour work sessions? Would you work for 2 hours to get a free cruise?

Cruise Travel Deals is passionate about helping the average Dick & Jane travel without breaking the budget. Our motto is affordable cruise vacations for everyone. Continue your education at http://www.hotcruisetraveldeals.com and pick up your COMPLIMENTARY 3 day vacation, just for visiting.

While at one assignment in the Air Force

Saturday, November 1st, 2008
by Sck

While at one assignment in the Air Force, I was the designated ‘computer guy’ who got called for anything involving electronic equipment. One day I got a call from the a General’s secretary that his Secure Telephone was broken, and that he needed a new one immediately. This wasn’t an odd request because these phones were complicated and kinda delicate – we kept spares for just such occasions.

Setting up the phone for use took about an hour. There was a special electronic “key” that needed to be programmed, then you had to call a special number for the “key” to be read and confirmed and synchronized. I got it all set up, then took the whole thing over to the General’s office to install.

His phone’s electrical cord had come unplugged from the wall.
