I find myself in a remote northern community with no road access except for a few weeks over the ice during the winter.  Oxford House, Manitoba, Canada.

I just purchased a new satellite dish from Xplornet which promised me 5 Mbps.  Unfortunately, the most I've ever seen is 1.2 Mbps, early in the morning.  Late in the afternoon, it degrades to 500 Kbps or less.  I'm paying $100 per month for this service.  The technician at Xplornet explains that the slow speed is a function of how many people in the community are using the service during the day.  Really?  I'm sharing the service with the whole community?  (It's a community of 3,000).

My neighbour has a business service.  He's paying $2500 per month, and he's getting 9 Mbps.  I have been told that his service (from a company called Galaxy) uses a very different technology.

Does anybody know what is the bottleneck with remote satellite Internet service, and are there any options between $100 per month and $2500 per month?  I'm the IT guy and I'm supposed to understand how this stuff works.

Thanks

Hi, Our partners host webinars quite often. I'm setting up an events page on our site that shows all the upcoming webinars (using Event calendar by Modern Tribe on Wordpress 4.8.2,)

We just have a link to the partners site where there's a registration form.

But our marketing director wants to be able to track how many people come from our site to register. Is there any way to track that from our end?

Dear Experts

I understand there are two approaches to handle the duplicate records when same prospect enters the CRM application
approach 1) append duplicate prospect data to a single record approach 2) create duplicate record and mark it status as "Repeated/Duplicated"

approach1) if we go for append duplicate prospect data to a single record would it be possible to have a marketing analysis like current month how many leads entered into SugarCRM including the duplicate leads also would it be possible to understand prospect journey touch points through multi channel showing interest.
OR
approach2)same prospect entering through multiple channels setting duplicate records to “repeated” status would be the most straightforward to implement and link it with the original lead may provide the marketing analysis like current month how many leads entered into SugarCRM including the duplicate leads and from which all campaigns and source.
if we go for approach two then the manual operation can be applied with the same treatment that is if the already existing prospect makes enquiry to the call centre then call centre user applies the same treatment that is copy/create the existing lead and mark the status as "Repeated" and attach it to the respective campaigns
Please suggest which approach in the above is  recommended and best practice , thanks in advance

Hi

I'm going to file my blog trademark again. Lame, but I neglected to do the final step one time, because I was so annoyed with the seeming endless ( unstoppable) billings. It felt like a Nigerian scam. Truly, I was suspicious and concerned.

Anyway, forget about it. I'm going to file again and there are 3 options. Does it matter which one I use? - for a blog name trademark? Also, would a logo filing be done later? The costs are complicated?  What will they be?

This is the initial page - notice the feeling-to-be-never-ending fees,      here

Thanks

I like the functionality of Boomerang and would consider it on my next product launch. Does it require GMail?

Is Mail Gun an alternative? I used that once before and it did not require GMail.

Thanks,

Hello, I am a daytrader in the futures market.  I have four strategies I had a developer create for me using the NinjaTrader version 7 platform.  I plan on marketing these as a bundle product.   I would like to know if any of your products can help me protect the further copying of the product once it is purchased.   The previous products I have purchased in the past from other day trading companies use the Machine ID validation.  Once the product is downloaded, before you can use it, you must have your Machine ID sent to them and it can only be used on that particular computer.   I am looking for that same effect.

If you think Google is the only real way to promote your business online – you’re mistaken. The reality is – social media is bigger than ever. And it looks set to continue to grow. While you shouldn’t ignore Google completely – you might be wasting a lot of time (and money) trying to improve your ranking when alternative marketing channels might be a better option.

Someone had recommended that I check it out.  I answer questions on Quora and LinkedIn, since I think there's way too much bad information floating around out there in the marketing arena, and I like being able to share my insights with people since my background - and approach - is a little different.  I eat, sleep and breathe ROI.  

Plus, I like engaging with people to find out what their biggest challenges are and see if there's any way I can help.  I've learned a lot over the years, and it's all based in practical application instead of theory.  If I tried something that bombed miserably, I'm completely OK telling people that.  And yep, it does happen from time to time.

Are there any site, like Ticket Management Software, which would provide a front end for the hiring of new Sales Agents?

This would be a site which provides an application section, some back-end processing options and an approval process that is managed through the site?

I really have no plans to build such for my own short terms use of it. I need to hire a few hundred agents for a short-term project.

So, hopefully such sites can be configured and put into use quickly.

I really am afraid of going the Salesforce route. I feel that alone could consume my entire budget.

I need a Salesforce Lite ;)

Thanks.

[Video] Create a Disruption-Free Workspace

Open offices have their challenges. And Sometimes, it's even hard to work at work. It's time to reclaim your office and create a disruption-free workspace. With the MB 660, you can:

-Increase Concentration
-Improve well-being
-Boost Productivity

I have a big idea for a new digital product and am considering using Crowd Funding.

It's a new technology that will help humanity in the pocket-book and bring positive changes to the poorest places on earth, as well as improving things for the middle class, worldwide.

I intend to give the best prices to people who invest in me with Crowd Funding.

What kind of aspects of a plan do I need in order to crowd fund? At the moment, I am being secretive even about the technology, but wold clearly share much more if I decided to crown fund. But I just wonder what elements I need?

I saw a movie the other night that I really enjoyed, but which would have never gotten the funding through the normal movie funding methods. It was crowd funded with 38,523 donations.

What kinds of aspects to do need? I assume that a service like GoFundMe has easy ways to configure the front end and the entire offering.

Do I need web development, for example?

I lost a URL to a site where you could type the hashtag and find the number of followers.

This way I could see if #Harvey as bigger than #Harvey2017 or #HarveyHurricane.

Does anyone have that free service?

That is interesting. It's always a shock to see the introduction of a new generation. So, now we've got Gen Z. Are hitting the Alphabet next? I'm what's known as a Tweener: 1960 - 1965. Because that Baby Boomer Generation went on far too long...

Translating from one language to another is a pretty standard (but incredible) technology that we're all familiar with. But what about translating to "elephant communication"?

This website translates words, phrases, and emojis into elephant calls, allowing you to send a video of an elephant communicating that word or phrase. I think its a great idea to use technology to raise awareness of not only their amazing social intelligence, but also their decline in recent decades.

I'm fascinated by elephants and think I'll be sending some elephant communication in the near future!

I sincerely hope that nobody records their audio "translations" and then stupidly decides to play them on a mobile phone while on a safari and observing wild elephants.  All it would take is one wrong audio playback to enrage the elephants and result in a potentially lethal encounter.  Similarly, anybody who decides to do the same thing with captive elephants at a zoo might cause the elephants to injure themselves or each other.  Worse still would be playing the mating call instead of "hello" to a bull elephant.

I have previously wondered whether Indian elephants "speak" the same language as African elephants, or the same language with a different "accent", and whether the same would be true for other animals like wolves living on different continents.

I am looking for a free cloud-based call center software such as Fenero. There is nothing wrong with Fenero except that they don't provide any support at all getting started unless you sign up to pay significantly and monthly.

In their comparison at the bottom of this page, http://www.fenero.com/, they mention Five9 and InContact as being more costly solutions. SalesForce is very costly and is out of the question.

We will be making outbound calls and doing emails.

Free or pay-per-call or pay-per-support incident would be a better model getting started than would a monthly option.

Assistance in finding a better solution for this would be greatly appreciated.

In a meeting some time back, a comment was thrown on the table that over 88% of companies in the US, with 100+ employees, are using social media.  We don't have any social media presences and are now considering it - we did started setting up just accounts for social media that was mention in that meeting (facebook, tweeter, linkedin, youtube, instagram, pinterest).

We understand this is a vast subject, and maybe complicated, but would greatly appreciated any EE that may have some experience in the topic, share their advice  in:

- what to consider prior.
- which social media get into first.
- how many should we set up in.
- doing this less monies possible (as a start).

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

We have a small SAAS platform which various companies use to sell basic products. Each company get's their own shop profile on our platform, which they can share and advertise via social media and other channels... so that customers can buy their products.

We would like to provide our customers with analytics to show where their hits and sales are coming from most. For example, if they share their profile by:

- Facebook
- Email
- Twitter

A - where do the majority of their views come from

B - where do the majority of sales come from

Is there any 3rd party software that we could integrate to do this OR should we look at building something from scratch?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have a client that has a Google Adwords account.  The account was suspended.  The message read:
Your AdWords account has been suspended because it does not comply with our "Misleading Content and Missing Information" policy on untrustworthy behavior.

Is it possible to have a place where people with different age range will hang together?

It sounds funny, and I think Kyle can also attest to it, but Pokemon Go achieves this. I've done raids that have included elementary aged kids and retirees. I've seen a lot of stories about children playing with their parents and grandparents and rejuvenating their relationships. The key to achieving this balance could be giving the users something on which to focus besides their own social lives. A 16 year old's social interests most likely won't align with a 30 year old's interests, but creating a common goal that interests people of any age can bring their worlds together.
