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.

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.
Policy violation:
Untrustworthy behavior

I have scoured the site and read all of the documentation and for the life of me cannot find what the issue may be:
The google adword Policy is here:
See the policy: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6020955

The online business is the same business as many other businesses that advertising on Google.  Why can the competition advertise and not the this company?

1. Now I strongly feel it could be email content could be the reasons , can you please let us know the best practice email content , words or sentence, list of those keywords not to be used, so that will prepare the content accordingly.  
2. some say complete image would be good and some say combination.
please help in above 2 points and any other inputs and suggestions please.

Hi Experts

We are using sugarcrm application for marketing and sales force automation, we do many online and offline marketing activities like googe search, email campaign, facebook campaign, google display Ads and offline like hoardings, news paper etc, the challenge is the we have big list of online integration with sugarcrm.  At present we are handling , one of the example , if the search user in the internet clicks on the  Adwords that is of our campaign  and click on it then fill the form where the form code will have UTM Source as Google and when form is filled and submitted it pushes the lead to sugarcrm and at sugarcrm side based on the UTM Source = Google then Lead Source is Web-Google. please find the attached list, day by day such list is growing and some times the digital agency does not exactly place the keyword as per the Sugar mapping hence lead source becomes Blank.  also report source columns are too big . Please suggest the best practice for the lead source and UTM source. thanks in advance.

Hi All -
When we run Pay-per-Click campaigns for Customers, I want to be able to show a Customer the results, Cost per Click, etc ... HOWEVER I need to include our markup in the cost numbers ...
For example,  a Click costs us $1.00. I want to be able to show $1.25. Everything else is the same.
Can anyone suggest any options? Either using Google/Bing or Open Source SW :) :)  or 3rd party SW.

Thanks all in advance!

I recently watched a video on Moz.com, who are recognised by many as experts in social media and SEO.  The video I watched was recommending a strategy that suggested that to maximise the use of each unique tweet, you should seek to schedule the same tweet multiple times over two weeks (it was suggested 7 times over two weeks) AND at different times, acknowledging the fact that the average Twitter user only spend 13 minutes per day on the platform, so unless you scheduled at different times, the size of audience you would hit through a single tweet posted once was minimal.

However, looking at Twitters policy, it would appear that multiple posting of the same tweet is spam

Question to Answer
1. Is there a limit to the number of times you can retweet a tweet?
2. If you can retweet a tweet without it being seen as spam by twitter, how many retweets over what period of time (e.g. 1 tweet retweeted 3 x over 2 weeks - just and example) would you recommend?
3. What is the maximum number of tweets you could post in a single day without it being seen as spam? (have seen forums suggesting anything in excess of 10 would be seen as spam by twitter)

Thanks in advance,
David

I am just thinking about this very cliched phrase that is so often used by corporate executives. And this dawned upon me when my friend asked me what is my USP when I decided to setup a store on an online marketplace.

I am thinking of this from 2 angles:
  1. From a business angle
  2. From a product angle

Example:
What really differentiate Supermarket A from Supermarket B,C, or D?

  • They will likely be selling the similar range of brands at likely the similar prices.
  • They will likely have the similar facilities like parking, children friendly facilities, etc
  • The level of service will likely be the same

So how can a business as such really differentiate themselves? And even if they do, how can prevent it from being duplicated.

And at the end, if they really came with something unique .. is it really a uniqueness that matter to the consumers?

Our digital agency said email marketing will be effective that is mails getting delivered to inbox or promotional tab is assured if the complete mail is with only one image file (png file) without any text in the email body, full image in the email body, according to them by doing this google algorithm will not identify this as it is image hence mails will not be spam and assured inbox delivery or promotional tab. Please suggest is this correct in reality. thanks in advance

I have a basic HTML website that I am trying to add Google AdSense banners to.  I creates an AsSense account, and created some Ad units.  I copied and placed the code in the body of my HTML as per instructions.  But only blanks show up.

I tried some 3rd party tools like https://ctrlq.org/sandbox/
They all show Ads for my site.

So I thought maybe some other  code on the page was conflicting.  I simplified and went vanilla with a test page.  Still does not work.

Here is the test page code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
</head>

<body>

	<!-- Google AdSense Widget -->

		<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
		<!-- Responsive -->
		<ins class="adsbygoogle"
			 style="display:block"
			 data-ad-client="ca-pub-7730398836286935"
			 data-ad-slot="3609658762"
			 data-ad-format="auto"></ins>
		<script>
		(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
		</script>
		responsive ad above this line

</body>
</html>

A while back, I had read that you aren't supposed to display your Youtube earnings from ads. Is that still true? I can't find anything on it.

Now that Google has purchased Youtube, it seems these earnings is just part of your Adsense earnings, which you are allowed to display.

My boss recently gave me a project to do IP targeting———based on a list of IP addresses and push the banner ad to whichever websites the targeted customers go to. This is a little different from the google Adwords Geo-targeting option. In case you have no idea about this subject, below page give a good explanation:

https://www.vicimediainc.com/ip-targeting-direct-mail-internet/


“How is this different than Geo-Targeting?
Geo-targeting uses groups of IP addresses to target an area.  But IP Targeting uses individual IP addresses to target specific households.  Think of it as sniper-like advertising reaching an exact target rather than advertising that blankets an area.”

I know that most of the IP addresses assigned by the ISP DHCP server don't change frequently. some even change every a couple of years. I also know how to map the IP addresses to the physicall addresses, but have no clue how to push the banner ad to individual IP addresses.

I totally have no clue how to implement it, see if anybody can give me some idea?

Hi,

My website is ranking no. 1 for a search term that I have been focusing on for quite a while.

I am working on a new Wordpress theme, which I am planning on installing on my site next week.

Could the change of theme, affect my SEO? The code of the new theme is very clean and fast.

The only thing that will change is my theme...my content will not change.

How do search engines usually react to this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,  I hope I am describing my question clearly.  I am doing a research project and have a task to perform advanced internet searches using use a search engine that is not powered by the common commercial search engines such as google, yahoo, aol or other.  I found some good search engines with the necessary features.  However my requirements are to search by range of dates that I enter in as free form; for example 01/01/2012 to 01/31/2012.  Most of the search engines have date parameters for 'past week', 'past month' or 'past year' or a drop down calendar feature to filter by date range.  

Can you help me find documentation/online resources where I can find how to construct search engine browser based queries specifying a range of dates?  I am asking for syntax help to write free form advanced internet searches that would not need to be search engine specific.  Your help will be most appreciated.

I have come across 3 types of clients who are reluctant to jump into an ecommerce solution. They feel little workarounds are sufficient such as 1) a link to their email on the buy now button instead of a proper checkout experience. They then take it manually from there. 2) A link to an external site to place the order for their product. This is either a (2)  marketplace with many other products or an (3) external online POS system with their products.

I am certain their conversion rate in all 3 cases they would be better off with a proper on-site ecommerce solution but am at a loss to find either statistics or a couple good articles backing me up.

Would you know of any such statistics or articles I could refer to?

Hi

Ive got 2 sites: a WP site and another drupal site I want to add an opt-in form to build an email list, but I need a couple of things:

1/ first of all I only need to ask for their email but I need to know in which page (URL) they entered their email because I plan to insert the opt-in in hundreds of pages so I need to know an email came from which page exactly

2/ I need to have the option to choose in which way the opt-in form is displayed, Id like to choose between a typical pop-up or a form in the sidebar or in the middle of the post at a specific point, or the form appearing in the sides, I need to have a wide array of options for the placement and behaviour of this form

Ive seen things like Thrive Leads, I like that a lot, but right now it escapes my budget, could I get something in the same vein but free or cheaper?

Ive tried Optin Forms but I can't seem to find the way to customize its behaviour and placement on the post, other than after a few paragraphs or at the end of the post, but no side or pop up options. Also I dont know if theres an option to see from which URL came every email address

As for the drupal site Ive got no idea if drupal uses a similar plugin system than WP, and what kind of opt-in is recommended for a drupal site

thanks in advance for any help
