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.
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
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.
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.
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,
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

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?
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">



	<!-- Google AdSense Widget -->

		<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
		<!-- Responsive -->
		<ins class="adsbygoogle"
		(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
		responsive ad above this line


Open in new window

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:


“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?

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?

one of our client is looking for lead generation activity in US for its newly set-up web hosting business.  Can anyone help me to share some website where we can advertise to lead generation for server hosting business at lowest cost. I have some publisher as below mentioned but I need more with lowest cost, also investing in Google but all waste.


I want to build my team to be SEO centric. We have a great opportunity to make money from sales of certain line of products that are not competitive. And I want to know the best way to go about it.

1. I want to hire research and content employees, who will take their time to develop the right content to best advise potential customers on best practices.

2. What else will I do right? that'll give hugely significant result within a 3-6 months time frame.

I will like to outsource the technical aspect to developers on elance, what should I be asking them to do: stuff like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUBaGG33V4Q&feature=youtu.be keeps bothering me.
We are looking for social media analytic tool (one tool) that supports the following:

1- it can automatically pull data periodically  from certain Facebook page and Twitter account , then
2- it can analyze data statistically and sentimentally .
3- its sentiment engine can be updated by adding custom user keywords.
4- it can categorize posts by topic like ( maintenance, service, news, complaint... )
5- it can provide result as structured raw data , so we can  build custom reports based on provided data on other platform ,for example:
list of posts [ post id,Post ,Topic (or category) , sentiment analysis for comments(# of positive . # of neutral , # of negative ) , # of like , # of share ,Created date...]
list of analyzed comments for each post [ Post ID,Comment , sentiment (positive , neutral , negative ) , Created date, location .... ]
Hi Guys,

We want to improve the quality of the keywords for Google Adwords campaigns, so we wonder if there is a way (software, website, app, etc.) to determine the best ranked searches made by users on Google.


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

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

I have a project in Google Analytics (GA) where I have to come up with ALL transactions in our product.  I am a newbie in GA so here are my questions-
1. I have logged into GA and did some research on how to come up with ALL transactions. Do I have to create a Dashboard for it or this is something GA has out of the box?  I have crated a Dashboard with Widgets Page views and Pages but again it only shows me top 10.  How do I increase that count?
2. I saw that User Flow shows first top 10 transactions but I am interested in both- the most and the least transaction= All transactions.  How do I get GA to show all the transactions in User Flow?

Thank you
My client just received an email out of the blue from feedburner.google.com.  It doesn't look like spam. It contains a link to a blog post from her site that was posted over a year ago. It comes from the feedburner account "Easton Foundations" which is the name of the company she works for but no one has any recollection of creating an "Easton Foundations" feedburner account let alone sending out a link to a post that was posted over  a year ago.  It seems legit though. If I click on the "unsubscribe" link, it takes me to the feedburner.google.com unsubscribe page.

Any ideas?
Our products were up there for years, no problem, then all of a sudden a month ago they shut us completely down. Over multiple conversations with a rep, the upshot seems to be that the shipping and tax amounts ended up LOWER on our main website than they were in G Shopping.

We do not adjust our product prices for G Shopping... they are exactly the same as they are on our site. However, the shipping amount is one I can't figure out how to calculate properly... our cart is a home brewed affair that has multiple background API calls going to UPS or FedEx or USPS or YRC or wherever depending on the product and depending on what the customer wants for shipper.

There's absolutely no way we can get accurate shipping amounts to show in G Shopping because we have no idea where the product is going! I have no idea what G expects us to do in order to make it exact, but again, from what I am gleaning through conversations with them, it seems the trick is to just make sure we never are lower on our site than we would display in G Shopping.

Anybody have any insight or ideas as to how we can get back on our feet with G Shopping? Maybe we need to come up with a whole new shipping amount called "Best Case Scenario" (which would be the absolute cheapest the product could ship from one side of U.S. to other) or something, and then always display that amount on G Shopping? I have no idea at this point how to fix this, and the G reps are VERY non-helpful.
I am trying to build a online store, like wayfair.com. What code do you recommend that I use to start?
My company needs to maintain a lot of data about our clients.But most of the data is unnecessary.We are near to sealing a deal with Light Speed GMI who provides such services.Do you have any recommendations or suggestions.Feel free to submit your suggestions,for any reference take a look about the company here .
Item ex. 65.00, The seller has to pay 15% of 65.00 plus .99. Should I include the 15% in the cost of my item to offset the loss?
