Beating my own drum

It may sound unpleasant when I beat my own drum; however, I must share my achievements to all of you to ensure that you do not blame me later :grin:

I made a post in WebProWorld forum; the idea triggered when I saw a particular Ad on my blog. Here is the snap:

The best thing is WebProWorld has covered it in their latest Newsletter. I was really thrilled to see my post and my name under the HOT TOPICS tag. Here is a link to the WebProWorld Newsletter for you all.

Google Print Ads

The reason I always supported running offline marketing campaign even for businesses that operate solely on Internet is proved now! (Even I suggested Content Writers to write for Alternate Media) Google has started Newspaper advertising made easy under the AdWords program.

While explaining the program, they have mentioned the Power of Newspaper as well. NAA 2006 Reader Engagement Study – Conducted by Scarborough Research says that:
  • 84% shoppers visited a retail store after going through newspaper ad
  • 60% visited a website to know more about a product or service promoted in a newspaper ad.
  • 50% said they purchased something online after seeing a newspaper ad
Google itself publishes Ads under Jobs for the positions vacant at the regional offices. Even I heard that Google goes for Banner Ads at some places. Even Yahoo! advertises about their service through Banner Ads.

Lots of websites promote their product through Television Ads also, I am sure Google will never let this media escape from its reach.

Problem with Broadband continues

Since the person at our local exchange insisted, I called up Datacraft Technology and one person from their office came to check my computer. Though they connected net after trying for an hour or so, but the connection was not stable at all.

Again, pages are not opening even when broadband is connected. I have checked the status carefully, no data is being received, that is the reason no page is opening. The image below shows I got connection and then the problem occurred.

And it is a problem with the modem itself. How can I say that? Now I am connected through dial up connection of BSNL and it is working fine. Pages are opening smoothly and connection is stable also. So there is no problem with the system right?

I am planning to buy a modem from the market. Hope everything will be ok soon.

My press release in prleap

Though I was quite sure that PrLeap will approve the Press Release that I wrote and submitted few days back; still I was feeling a bit nervous. When I turned on my PC in office today, I first checked my inbox and hurray they approved it.

While preparing this release I tried to maintain the guidelines strictly, however, describing a new technical product often sounds promotional which is a big NO NO for press release. That is the only thing I was concerned about! Now I am really happy to see my name beside the news!

Don't forget to digg it.

My Internet Usage

Now you may ask me why lesser surfing during the last week of April? Well, I cannot connect through broadband. Though it is showing connected but no page is opening and it is unable to "ping" also. I don't know what has happened to the system? Is it a specific problem with my PC only or some technical error on part of BSNL? If you have the answer feel free to contact me.
