How do I fix this?
I have one Facebook account and would like to talk with someone via chat who knows about how to properly configure Facebook, so that it can be used for professional, personal, as well as to sell products.

I currently have this page that is supposed to be my professional Facebook presence and people, even "friends" complain that they can't see anything at all.

1. I would like to be able to have a professional view as the default available at that URL to all the public.

2. I would also like to promote a video designed to sell a product from my website to a Facebook audience that cannot see any of my personal contacts such as so-called "friends" or "acquaintances".

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

In my WP blog, I'd like to give my users the opportunity to sell their associated art (their music)
Now that CD's don't exist, what are the opportunities here? mp3's, iPod?
How is music sold?
Do most people have the ability to acquire this music, in practicality?

I am about to launch a WordPress/WooCommerce site but worry about around the clock support for my site since my developer's in India, Monday thru Friday.

That's about 25% of the week! That being said, I would expect the bulk of sales to be on Eastern Standard Time, 8AM to Midnight, which means his coverage percentage is higher that 25%.

Are there are support models you can think of which would be me paying some small retainer for a WP developer to be on call and getting notified if there is a hiccup or site outage? Then, if there is real work that's needed, I'd pay on an hourly basis?


Do I need to be worried at all about the site have problems which could cause it to be unavailable to process further orders?

I am not worried there may be a one in a hundred error rate which I can resolve when the email comes in, but instead, having a site outage causing orders to stop.
I have a line chart that I use to show sales information.  I use it all year, but would like to highlight (via background shading) each quarter of the year.  I have had no luck so far.  Any suggestions?
I have a youtube video with a pitch for a subscription service.

I plan to get some assistance in promoting the service and want to find a way to tie the link being passed around by each individual salesperson, back to that individual so that I know what commission to pay them if those viewers become customers.

Assistance in figuring out how to do this is greatly appreciated.
I've got three columns: Individual, Amount, and Date. Each individual has multiple sales for each date, and I want to find the simplest way in which to see how much they sold on their best day, and potentially, what day that was. I can make a new sheet, with one column full of every date from January 1 to December 31, the second column containing the individual's name, and then a SUMIF to pull the totals for each day, then use MAX on that column to find the number, but I'm guessing there's a better way.

Here's the issue: I've got three columns of data: Individual, Amount Sold, Date Sold.

People have multiple sales for each given date.

I want to find each person's best night, i.e. all the sales for each given date combined for that date, and then I'd like to see the max for each individual, so I can show them their best night.

I can do this by creating a new sheet with three columns, one containing every date from 1/1/17 to 12/31/17, the next containing the name of a single person, and the third containing a SUMIF formula, so that I have the sum of each person's sales for each day, and then take the MAX from that column. I am sure, however, that there is a better way. A PivotTable seems to only give me the largest single sale from each individual, instead of the night with the largest sale.

What's the simpler solution here?

Hi Cory, you need to look at a PivotTable with dates grouped by day
How do i compute sales tax in monthly turnovers for the year in quickbooks.
The Sales reps absolutely love these and won't gve them up - I need to keep them on the road. 2GB RAM isn't upgradeable, best strategy for using virtual RAM ?
I have this view with the year to date sales values for each stock item sold: -
SELECT        Year, [Stock Code], SUM(SalesValue) AS TotVal
FROM            dbo.tbl_My_Table
GROUP BY Year, [Stock Code]
HAVING        (Year = YEAR(GETDATE()))

I want to create a SQL job to populate a table overnight e.g. tbl_Inventory_Category

I need to add StockCode and Category to the table, StockCode comes from the view. 'Category' is calculated thus:

•      A=  Products that make up 65% year to date sales.
•      B= Next 20%
•      C= Next 10%
•      D= Next 5%

Does anyone know how to achieve this?
Have the attached report that simply shows sales by day.  I am wanting to add a Max line at the 150K to go across the page.  Does anyone know how to do this as the crystal graphs seems limited.

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 am looking for some kind of website where I can find sample proposals for different kind of IT projects? I know I can deliver the technology to my clients but I can't write a decent proposal which probably caused me to loose several bids. I right for example I am writing one for a VDI solution for a school. Does anyone know any resources?

Thank you!
