|What is your Backup Plan?|
|According to a survey by DTI/Price Waterhouse Coopers, 70 percent of
small firms that experience a major data loss go out of business within a
year. Losing critical computer data in today's Internet Age can wipe
out any small business making data backup an essential operational task.|
Your most important files are usually the ones that you are currently
working on... yesterday & today. Backing up data on CDs or external hard drives can eat up a lot of time. When was the last time you backed your files up? You can only manage to do it every so often. And there's still a chance that these external storage devices can be lost, destroyed, or stolen.
What is your backup plan?... Save time and effort - Use an automated online system... I use Mozy... for less than $5 a month I have my files backed up daily! Peace of Mind alone is worth it. Hold onto your latest work files; family photos; music; financial
documents. Back up what you want, when you want.
Mozy is 100% automatic. You always have the most recent versions of your files in a safe online environment that you can access from anywhere. And Mozy is owned by Fortune 500 company EMC, so your files are protected for the long haul with military-grade encryption - the same security online banks use during data transfer. Check them out...

Marketing Tip: Why Email?
We have a lot to choose from when it comes to marketing, why email?... Because almost everyone your business needs to reach reads it!
- 91% of internet users are between the ages of 18 - 64 send and read email EVERYDAY! (source: emarketer)
Another study by AOL indicates that people are checking their email at work, home, in bed , in the bathroom, in the middle of the night, while they drive and even in church!
Email way is a great way to connect with your audience because your audience is constantly looking where email gets delivered!
Another great reason: It is cost effective... Direct mail vs. Email -Direct mail costs 20 times as much as email. Email ROI is the highest when compared to other internet marketing mediums (source: direct mkting assc.)
