Porsche Panamera

0 comments

In 2009 is set to be launched a four-door, four-seat coupe, called Porsche Panamera. The car, powered by a modified version of the 4.5 L V8 found in the Cayenne, equipped with the FSI system will be front engined and rear wheel drive. Although it is extremely unlikely, rumors is that an option for the Panamera will be the V10 engine from Porsche's limited-run Carrera GT supercar. 

Porsche Panamera will be produced in the new plant at Leipzig alongside the Cayenne. It is the first V8 engined sports car built by Porsche since 1995, when the 928 was discontinued and some consider it a suitable successor to the two-doored 928. 

The company built the new model as a direct competitor to the Mercedes-Benz CLS 55 AMG and Maserati Quattroporte and (to a lesser degree) a less expensive alternative to expensive vehicles such the, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, Bentley Continental GTand Aston Martin Rapide.

Like Porsche Carrera`s name, the Panamera`s derives from the Carrera Panamerican race. Before it, there were other four-door sedans prototypes, such as the 1991 Porsche 989 prototype or the even earlier 4 door prototype based on the 911, but they never went into production.

Writing WAHMS

Working at home as a writer is one of the largest work at home categories. Being a freelance writer has traditionally been a work at home job, and now that working at home is becoming more popular, there have been more writers in the industry. If you like to write and have a good grasp of the English language, you will never be at a loss for the work at home writing jobs.

Starting your career as a work at home writer is as easy as doing some Internet research and applying for a job. There are many ways to break into the writing field, even if you have no previous experience. Online opportunities abound, and there are still many writers who stay exclusively in the print market.

While many writers dream of one day writing the great American novel, most writers are realistic in knowing that they are going to have to do some other types of writing to get paid on a consistent basis. Writing for pay is mostly, if not exclusively, done in the non-fiction genre. While occasionally you will find contests for fiction writing or for poetry, these opportunities are few and far between when compared to the non-fiction opportunities.

Writing from home as a Wahm requires that you have a reliable Internet connection, good written communication skills and the ability to be a self-starter. As a writer, you will be in charge of your time and your projects. There will always be deadlines to meet and new writing opportunities to try. You will be responsible for balancing your writing with the rest of your life. You must also have the ability to research a wide variety of topics. As you accept assignments, you’ll be challenged to learn about and write about topics that you may have little experience in. 

Freelance writing from home can break down into three specific areas: writing for print, writing for the web and blogging. Although blogging is technically writing for the web, there are many distinctions that make it different from other web writing opportunities.

Writing for print is what people generally think of when they hear the term “freelance writer.” Wahm writers who write for the print markets need to first build a reputation as reliable and eloquent writer. If you’ve never written for the print markets before, start with smaller, local publications and then work from there. You’ll need to find a list of publications that are accepting “queries.” Queries are a combination of a letter of introduction and a pitch for a story idea. Most writers rely on the Writer’s Market reference guide for lists of publications. The Writer’s Market has comprehensive information on a variety of newsletters, magazines and other publications that are taking queries. Start with topics that you know the most about and try writing a few queries to get yourself going in the print market.

The only drawback to writing for print is that the period between when you write and when you get paid can be months long. For many Wahms, this is just not feasible. Writing for the web, however, can meet their income needs and still allow them to write from home. There are many categories of writing for the web. You can be a ghostwriter for e-books or other Internet media. Many people need copywriters to provide content for their sales letters and websites. You can also offer your services to webmasters who need fresh content for their blog or newsletter. The opportunities are endless.

Blogging is yet another way to make money as a writing wahm. Blogs are an ever-growing form of Internet media. Blog writers generally provide their own content. You can make money as a wahm by starting your own blog and posting to it daily. If you love to write, you can start several blogs at once and multiply your earnings. Once you become an experienced blogger, you can apply for blogging jobs and post for other people.

Advanced Internet Marketing

0 comments


Most people, who aren't internet marketers, don't fully understand what internet marketing really is all about. At it's core, internet marketing is just a way to use the vast potential of the internet to find more customers. There are many things you will want to learn when you start marketing online and that is where advanced internet marketing training comes in. 

Obviously, before you worry about advanced internet marketing you need to make sure you have a firm grasp of the basics. With so many methods to connect with others online you must know what works, and what doesn't. 

Another thing you should keep in mind is that things online change quickly. What worked great yesterday, or last year, either might not work as well or they might not work at all. 

A big part of the reason for this is that the search engines are continually updating their programming (their algorithms) in the hopes of improving the experiences of their searchers. 

These changes can, and sometimes do, have a dramatic impact on the websites online. It is important that you stay current with these changes. 

More than one internet marketer has gone to bed with a website that was doing really well:ranked high and getting a lot of traffic, only to wake up the next morning and find their once first page site is now on page 117 of the results. 

Of course there are ways to avoid that and the best method is to update your site frequently (this is why a lot of internet marketers prefer a Wordpress blog style website. It is easy to update) and provide your website visitors with a lot of quality. 

The search engines are getting better at being able to detect quality content on a website. They will reward that site by giving it a high placement on the results page. 

Here are a few of the internet marketing strategies you will want to implement. Some of these are more about getting traffic to your website, others are more about converting that traffic into paying customers. But they are all necessary:

1. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - if you want your website ranked highly, you have to let the search engines know what your site is about. Using simple SEO strategies on your site can help you get more free, targeted traffic.

2. Pay Per Click (PPC) - this advanced technique of getting traffic can work quickly but only after you learn how to do it. There is a learning curve and it will cost you if you make mistakes. 

3. Email Marketing: this is more about "bonding" with your website visitors and building trust with them than actually driving traffic. Online it can be hard to stand out from the crowd and let people "get to know you" or trust you. By having a chance to send them emails over a period of time you can build rapport with them. 

Learning some basic and advanced internet marketing skills can help you turn your business into a very profitable endeavor. It doesn't matter if you have an offline business or an online business, learning new skills can help you make more money.
