Fiverr (pronounced “5er”) is a global online marketplace offering tasks and services, beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name. The site is primarily used by freelancers who use Fiverr to offer a variety of different services, and by customers to buy those services. Fiverr facilitates the buying and selling of "Gigs" or micro-jobs online. Gigs range from “get a well-designed business card”, “a career consultant will create an eye-catching resume design”, “help with HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and JQuery”, to “I will be your personal assistant or virtual assistant” and “I will have Harold the Puppet make a birthday video.” You can see how using fiverr you can get a logo designed for a low cost or any other tasks. I hope you do leave a comment so we can start a discussion about fiverr. Have a great day. ..

Why Your Business Needs a Virtual Organization System In the technological age, where new advances are being made every day in ways that directly impact your business, disorganization remains an expensive, time-consuming flaw that can ruin even the best-intentioned entrepreneurs. Thankfully, many of the latest and greatest technological advances have arrived in the form of organizational software that helps your business run like a well-oiled machine (even if it’s actually just a one-man or one-woman show). With the advent of online appointments, scheduling software, and digital scanning applications, your company can save hours of time each week and thousands of dollars per year. Up until a few years ago, support staff spent up to 50% of their day scheduling appointments online and over the phone, sifting through paper clutter, filing documents and scanning receipts. Virtual organization systems have allowed small business owners to automate all of the above tasks, freeing up support staff to build customer rapport and help grow the business. Appointment scheduling software like Simply Appointments allows your customers to do the work for you. These cloud-based applications let customers schedule their own appointments online, freeing your staff for more important work. Simply Appointments can automatically send email reminders about the appointment in question, accept new appointments 24/7, and be easily integrated with multiple websites and company locations. But your virtual organization system doesn’t stop there. Once you’ve automated the appointment-making process, it’s time digitize your paper clutter! Shoeboxed is a receipt and document scanning service that virtually organizes your paper clutter and turns it into digital data. Like Simply Appointments, Shoeboxed does the work for you by scanning your receipts and uploading them to a secure account. Instead of having your staff spend hours scanning bank statement..

Why did we implement a CDN (Content Delivery Network)? We know that website performance is everything so we wanted to provide our customer with a fast system. Basically what a CDN does is saves frequently used files closer to your computer. Your computers web browser does not have to go all the way across the country to the source server to get these files it needs. The files maybe just down the road from you saving precious seconds so the website loads faster. An Overview of CloudFlare CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through our intelligent global network. We automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. We also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks. CloudFlare makes your site faster CloudFlare operates out of 23 data centers around the world. Our CDN automatically caches your static files at our edge nodes so these files are stored closer to your visitors while delivering your dynamic content directly from your web server. CloudFlare then uses a technology called Anycast to route your visitors to the nearest data center. The result is that your website, on average, loads twice as fast for your visitors regardless of where they are located. CloudFlare leverages the knowledge of a diverse community of websites to power a new type of security service. Online threats range from nuisances like comment spam and excessive bot crawling to malicious attacks like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks. CloudFlare provides security protection against all of these types of threats and more to keep your website safe. http://www.cloudflare.com/ http://vime..

Online Appointment Scheduler – Works wonders for you An Online Appointment Scheduler makes the work of setting appointments between you and your clients very easy. With this software you can set your free time for appointments and set yourself as busy or even to appear as busy. Your clients may select a time for an appointment which suits them based on your schedule that you set. You may confirm this appointment when a request has been submitted on the website. This makes your website not only be an informative but also a productivity tool for you and your business. 24/7 appointment scheduling ability Imagine you are having the much needed nap or are busy with a client or even at your kids sporting event. Do you really want to stop everything to respond to that telephone call, text/sms message or to an email. Here we go back and forth with the messages. Your clients will be able to see and book an appointment with you whenever and wherever they are… sitting on their couch at 2am or at 6pm when you are dealing with everyday life and really just don’t want to handle a scheduling task. Kids screaming, dog barking, smoke alarm going off… Dinner is almost ruined, you’re frustrated and you still have to get to the baseball field in 30mins. Sound familiar? Now imagine that you didn’t answer the msg/call from your customer. Sure your kids might still be screaming and the dog might be barking but the smoke alarm would not be going off and dinner would still be on track as well as your schedule still being on track with Simply Appointments. And how about this added bonus? Get your clients to book their own appointment for you, now they are doing your work for you. ..

How can an appointment system actually help your business and save you time? Will an appointment system really work? Imagine that you are helping a customer and the phone rings. do you answer it? do you let it go to voice mail if they leave a msg? Imagine you get a text message while helping a customer, what do you do? Are potential or current customers calling you for an appointment when you are out with the kids or shopping for some shoes or licorice? Now you really wanna answer the phone when you are trying to see how soft that licorice is don't you? :) An online appointment system is not going to replace or stop all the emails, text, voice mails or phone calls but it will help to reduce them. Those customers who want to call you and book still can, you just set their appointment within the system for them. If you don’t think an online appointment system will work ask your friends when the last time they used a physical paper phone book. They will most likely tell you they have not in a long time. What I am trying to show you is that things like phone books are so 1990 and the world is moving to all online. Think about when you make your appointment for your kids doctor, dentist appointments or even the car appointment. Isn’t that such a fun telephone call to make? And think of the 10minutes or more it took, a great waste of time. Now imagine your customers being able to see your availability based on what you enter and book and appointment and even prepay. You know they will get appointment reminders as well as already being paid. So here you have just saved your time booking the appointment and almost 100% sure your customer will be at their appointment. Does this sound like something you have to go through ever? ..
