Finding the Right Travel Nursing Placement Agency

Travel nursing is becoming one of our nation’s fastest growing professions, and it’s no surprise. If you love seeing new places and enjoy exciting new experiences that evoke the feeling of taking an extended vacation, then the career of a traveling nurse might be just what the doctor ordered! Travel nursing enables many people to stay on vacation for two to six months in free luxury accommodations while earning high hourly wages at the same time.

Yet despite all these advantages, many nurses describe to me that they’ve shied away from the traveling profession. Why? Because bad experiences with placement agencies have left them with nothing but a negative impression. They’ve been underpaid or lacked benefits, and I can’t tell you how many nurses have complained to me about inadequate housing or recruiters who were unkind, uncaring, and just plain unavailable. The sad result is that nurses end up jumping from one agency to the next, always in search of the perfect package that’s never there.

In this light, choosing the right staffing agency requires a nurse to consider everything that is offered. Some nurses emphasize pay as their top priority. Others require an excellent benefits package. Many travel RNs are location-specific and want to experience the lifestyle in the country’s hot spots. Career flexibility is often a pivotal factor, along with customer service. The bottom line is, your agency choice depends largely upon one of the four following criteria.

SALARY

No question about it, there are some agencies that offer more money than others. So the first thing to remember is that agencies may base salaries upon things like location availability, need-to-fill assignments, and cost of living.

Some agencies must offer noticeably higher rates if they expect to fill certain assignments where nurse-to-patient ratios are very low, or where a facility has extreme patient needs. If you’re a nurse who is attracted by very high dollars, be alert for a potentially desperate situation you might be entering, and the workload it could bring. You may make more money, but you’ll earn every dollar and more.

Location also factors into salary. The California bay area and many larger east coast cities definitely offer more lucrative pay rates. It’s also much more expensive to live in those places, so recognize the relationship that exists between salary dollars and cost of living. I’ve seen nurses return from Hawaii saying they had a great vacation and made a lot of friends–but their purses were lighter, not heavier from the experience. You might get less money in an exotic location and come back with more money from a not-so-exotic location. My point is, your criteria will determine your priorities.

BENEFITS

What some companies may lack in salary, they make up for with benefits. Many agencies offer benefits programs that revolve around monetary bonuses or discounted luxury housing; and I have even observed a trend with several newer companies that offer entirely free housing to all their nurses. Take note, however, that those agencies may not ante up the really high salaries. It’s a trade-off, so they compensate you with benefits to save you daily, monthly, and annual expenses. Every nurse should be aware of what benefits they need the most, and then ask their recruiters to assist in developing a package that is tailored to their individual needs.

CUSTOMER SERVICE

To many traveling nurses, customer service and aid are the most important attributes a placement agency possesses. If you called ten agencies and only talked with one live recruiter, it’s probably best to narrow it down to the agency where individual placement specialists were easily available. After all, if you’re ready to proceed with a new assignment you’ll want an agency that can make it happen fast and has recruiters available who already understand your criteria. In fact, your criteria may change from one assignment to another, so customer service is paramount. Determine what you want and then find out which agencies can make it happen.

FEATURED LOCATIONS AND HOT SPOTS

While for some nurses, salary, benefits, and career flexibility might be the number-one interest, many others just want the obvious–to travel and see the world. If you’re an adventurer who cares more about the travel experience than the money, then you’ll need an agency that can offer you the locations you want.

Not every agency can send you just anywhere. Figure out where you want to go, and then call around to discover who can send you there.

A travel nursing career is absolutely one of the best, most rewarding choices any nurse can make, but it’s important to select a company who will partner with you every step of the way. Before you jump in, do your homework and research all the best placement agencies. Finding the agency that fits your unique wants and needs will drastically increase your chances of success and happiness in your career.

Activity Internet Report, Part-Time Internet Marketing

Before I start on this one, it may be well to remember the saying,
“where is the best place to meet the high and mighty high?”
hey, at most New Years Eve Parties.

If you want to read a article written by a Internet Guru or English
Professor you can stop reading now. If you’re looking for honest
Internet Information in plain everyday writing this is for you. Read
on, this could save you a bundle and give you enough information to
start part time Marketing on the internet.

I found out the hard way that Internet business opportunities are
almost never all they’re cracked up to be. The only persons who benefit
from the opportunities are the people who start the programs and a
few friends at the top.

Seen all those ads with images of luxury cars, boats, and house? This
is the image of high life you can have if you join a MLM opportunity.
If you believe the above I have a beautiful famous bridge in San
Francisco I want to sell, cheap, doesn’t wait, today only.

As a newbie to the Internet (joining after years of retirement), with 40
years of successful publishing, printing, business off line, it makes
me sick to think people would believe this. Yeh, just join this MLM and
in two months you will be building a luxury house next to Bill Gates.

Scams after scam try to make people believe that pyramid selling laws
just doesn’t apply to the Internet. Many so-called marketers are not just
sneaky, but are out and out liars.

Further, very few offer any sort of resources to help you. To make
matters worst, they make you feel like a real “dumbie” by e-mailing you
2 days after joining, wondering why you haven’t signed up at the very
least 100 members. They make it look like it’s your fault you have not
yet earned enough to pay for that lot next to Bill Gates.

Their scams have given the Internet a real bad name. Just mention to a
friend or work mate about joining or buying something on the Internet.
I will bet you 90% will just change the subject or walk away. So many
persons got sucked into some of these get rich scams that the average
person will not trust the Internet when it comes to buying products,
services.

Webmasters who are now on the web work overtime, researching, and
building trust, which enables them to sell on the Internet.

They know success does not come overnight. They have to work hard,
be persistent, teachable, research. They have to make the effort and
a little bit of cash helps.

If you intend on making a living on the Internet start out part time.
The failing rate on the Internet is over 94 percent, mostly because
they buy into the MLM Marketer that promises all you have to do
is join as a paid member.

In your dealings with others, make sure you have proper disclosures as
required by law. To be an effective marketer, don’t be untruthful, make
false, misleading statements. Further remember you are responsible
for statements made by the MLM marketer if you are an affiliate selling
for them. You too could be charged and fined along with the MLM
you are promoting.

To make sure you are following the regulations for advertisements, and
other rules and regulations check out the following at FTP.

PROTECT YOUR COMPUTER AND MONEY

Here are a few steps you can take to be on the safe side. If your email
program has the option to automatically download attachments, make sure
it is turned off.

Check and make sure your Anti Virus is up to date.

If you have to open an attachment, save the file to your computer or
a disk.

Manually scan the file using up-to-date Anti Virus.

Remember scammers use fake websites, mail redirects. Before sending
any money check it out first. Never just click on the URL provided.
Type in the URL manually.

If you receive an email with the heading Paypal, Clickbank etc., asking
you to confirm your user, password, remember they already have this
information and would not be asking you for it.

YOUR INTERNET “BANK” PAYPAL

If you buy or sell on the Internet, you need a secure reliable firm
for sending,accepting payments online. Paypal (owed by e bay) is one
of the preferred ways of sending or receiving cash online. You are
notified within minutes when you pay, buy or send money. Never trust
using your cards on the Internet. By the time you get your monthly
statement hundreds of dollars could be charged to your account. Play
it save. Get a free account with PayPal today!

I started as an affiliate but it has a lot of drawbacks. Sure they
will supply you with a free website, but then you know there are
hundreds all the same. Search engines as a rule will not list affiliate
sites.

Further, the URL given to you to promote with are long, ugly, and it’s
easy to steal your commission. Any one that may have wanted to join or
buy the product your promoting will just cut off your ID code and join.
You lose the commission and an affiliate. Plus the biggest draw back is
you don’t get a list of the persons you promote for the firm.

If you do want to sell a product for a MLM make sure you check them out.
Then you need to get the script that will shorten the URL you are given
to promote with, or learn how to clone the URL so your commission is not
stolen. Join a couple forums, and ask if anyone could give you the
script to be able to do either of the above. Most people in forums will
help because it also gives them a plug.

What business do you know (other then an Internet MLM) gets you to pay for
their advertising and work for free? You’re better off to set up your
own web site and promote as a reseller or get and sell your own products.
This way you can build up your own list.

I hate to admit this but for some reason I got tunnel vision when it came
marketing as an affiliate. I learned how to get free hits to my site, got
number 1 to 8 listing in MSN, Yahoo, Googl for my key words. in fact
have from 2 to 6 listing in each of the top 10 listing for all three of
the above search engines. My hits for December were over 2 million, yet
because I was selling for MLM’s without cloning my URL,just made enough
to cover my expenses.

No person told me everyone could tell I was a newbie and a dummie when
they saw my affiliate URL, not cloned. They would cut off the ID number
at the end if they were interested in the product I was selling, get the
commission that should have been mine, plus what hurt more was I lost an affiliate.

The cost of setting up a web site is minimum. Should you go this route I
highly recommend Robyn at:

No, I have no personal interest in myfriendlyhost, nor do I get any commission
from Robyn for listing her site. Without Robyn’s help I would have quit the Internet.
She is one of the few persons on the Internet who helped me, without
asking for money first.

LIGHTSIDE

Now lets see if we can get you to grin again by checking out some of
these great quotes;

“if we let loggers go in and cut down the trees we wouldn’t have a
problem with forest fires”- George Bush

I only hope our Premier Gordon Campbell does not see this. He is just
liable to take Mr. Bush’s advice. With all the forest fires we have here
in BC, Greenpeace would really see some clearcuts.

“that lowdown scoundrel deserves to be kicked to death by a jackass,
and I’m just the one to do it” -A congressional candidate in Texas.

By any chance was Mr Bush ever a candidate in Texas??

My best pick;
“if someone has a bad heart, they plug this jack in at night as
they go to bed and it will monitor their heart throughout the
night. And next morning when they wake up dead, there’ll be a
record”- Mark S. Fowler, FCC Chairman.

Just goes to prove we all are humans, make mistakes and when it’s
the other person’s slip-up, enjoy it.

None of the free listings below are mine, nor am I a affiliate of any
of the listings. They are listed for your benefit only.

You should also consider selling via ebay. They first started in 1995,
and I am sure few people would have believed they would have over 157
million members worldwide today.

Thousands of persons are making a good living today selling on eBay.
They give you a lot of support with free information, tools and
resources. Really a great way to start on the Internet part-time, as
you have control on the hours you want to spend to make it work.

Internet Marketing Gone Stale? Maybe It's Your Attitude

Heard it all before? Yeah right… I always get a kick out of people those that are in their own business and tell me they’ve heard it all before. Ask those same people how business is… “things are tough, the economy stinks” a number of not-so-brilliant statements start pouring out of their so-well-educated mouths.

The funniest ones are those who say they have heard it all… never implement any of it… and complain about how it is all re-hashed information that isn’t of use to them and their business. Those are the ones that are always on the lookout for the next shiny object they can blow their money on.

The pay-per-click product of the week.

The Google arbitrage million dollar formula of the month.

The software-that-does-it-all-for-you-while-you-sleep magic bullet that promises them riches overnight.

Ask those same people how many new strategies they have tested in their business in the past month. Or how many new lead generation campaigns they tested. Or what kind of new customer communication campaigns they have sent out to their prospects and buyers in the past work week.

That’s about the only way to shut them up about how flipping brilliant they are.

“Well, nothing recently.”

“The last one didn’t work out so well.”

“This internet marketing stuff doesn’t work. Direct mail is too expensive and never gives a good enough return. “

Blah, blah, blah (insert stupid excuse here).

Here’s a tip that is guaranteed to make you a bundle.

Implement one new marketing activity a day for the next month.

It can be as simple as writing an article that you send out to your list, meanwhile copying that same article to one of the online article banks.

Copy that same article to your blog (which you just need to have…. period).

Mail that article out to your buyers.

To your prospects.

Consider each of those one marketing activity a day.

Day 1 – write an article and email it to your list.

Day 2 – post it to your blog

Day 3 – send it to the article directories

Day 4 – get 200 copies of the article printed and mail 100 of them to your prospects

Day 5 – send the other 100 printed ones to your buyers

Then do something different.

Day 6 – call 5 of your past clients to see how they are doing. Leave a brief message if they don’t pick up. Tell them you are just phoning to say hi, see how they are doing, and see if they have any feedback for you.

Day 7 – call 5 business owners that would make a good joint venture with you. See if they have any ideas on how you could do a co-promotion to each others list.

Day 8 – find 5 online forums that your prospects would likely visit – invest 2 hours there and dig around looking for comments and feedback people are leaving. See what kind of questions they are asking. Look for the ones that come up on a regular basis.

And so on.

You can do one thing a day like this.

Things like: a tele-seminar, an article, a blog post, a press release, and so on.

Are any of the above ideas rocket science?

Are they shockingly new ideas?

NO!

BUT, have you done any of them lately?

Have you actually taken the initiative to do one thing a day to build your business (checking email is not a proactive marketing task, nor is talking to friends on Facebook, or sending out an inspirational quote on twitter).

I’ll tell you what.

You do one thing a day like this for the next 30 days.

Every single day.

Each time you do one or more of them make sure your website link is there, along with your phone, facsimile and email.

Just because you have heard them before, doesn’t mean they aren’t any good.

How can you possibly expect to grow a business when you haven’t even implemented the BASIC tools like this? You can’t. It isn’t about all the fancy shiny objects out there on the internet. It isn’t about waiting for the “next big thing” that will make you a bundle.

It is ALL about taking massive action on a daily basis.

You do that… and if you can honestly show me what you did, and show me the lack of any results from all that effort… I will pay you $20.

It may not be a lot… but it will be my apology to you as obviously my ideas suck and didn’t make you money.

I doubt you will come back to me with zero results.

I have been doing this for 8 years now, and have never seen this simple system not work.

I dare you.

Double dare you.

Just try it.

And report back what happens.

NETWORKING

SCAMS, FRAUDS

FAKE E CARDS

HOLIDAY RENTALS

DROP SHIP

One of the first things you should do is check the government regulations that effect Internet marketing. Two of the main regulation deals with e mails. You can only send out your offer to persons who have contacted you about your offer or (a one time only) persons who have contact you with their offer.

You are required to enclose in all your e mails, your e mail address, your business address and phone. If you will be using a autoresponder you are required to have a unsubscribe link, so persons who may have contacted to receive your offers, newsletter, etc. can click on and have their name removed from your list.

It is also very important to remember if you join a MLM as a affiliate the firm you are marketing for meet the regulations, as you too could be charged if they make outrages claims about their product, how much money can be made etc.

The FTC enters Internet, telemarketing, identity theft and other fraud-related complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to hundreds of civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S.

and abroad.

Get your own website, avoid the free ones offered by MLM’s. Don’t be restricted to one firm’s product with a free website.

With a free web site you would have no chance of being listed on the search engines, as there would be hundreds of web sites with the same offers. All you are doing is working for free, paying for advertisements for someone else’s products. If there was some product you wanted to sell from a MLM firm, you can join as a reseller and place just the product you want to handle on your website.

NETWORKING

You didn’t learn it at school, or at the office.

Would you believe your mother?

Networking is more then shaking hands, and giving out business cards. Forget about the endless networking skills you may have learned at the office. We just have to put the few lessons mother taught us into practice. As a kid we were always in a hurry to find something better. Our mothers taught us patience.

If your in a hurry you miss the value that can be built taking time with building relations in networking. Establishing a relationship by taking time, gives you a solid framework in networking building.

Your mother worked hard as an example. This is one of the better examples in networking she gave you. That’s why it is called networking, not sit work. For networking to be successful you have to work hard and put out the effort.

Remember her telling you to share your things with others? Some of our best resources are time, money, and information we are willing to give to the relationship. They appreciate us when we are willing to give to the relationship.

She always made you clean up after yourself. In networking, follow-up is required. Whether it’s a promise to meet someone, or just a thank you is one of the most important lessons of networking. These life lessons we learned from mother during childhood are a solid basis’s for strong networking skills.
Thank you mother for all your help.

The biggest time spend in selling, more so in mail order or on the Internet is developing a relationship with your customer and building trust. If you did a good job in the first two, closing a sale will take the smallest of your time spend with your customer.

SCAMS, FRAUDS

Fake e cards.
You get a message with a link to an online greeting card but, when you click it, you end up with a virus on your PC. A couple of simple rules here. Delete any messages that come from someone you don’t know or that don’t address you by name. If they come from someone you know, email that person to check that they sent it before clicking on.

HOLIDAY RENTALS

2009 has seen a surge in ads offering bogus vacation rentals. You pay a deposit or even in full to get a key and that’s the last you hear of them. Scammers are experts at creating phoney look-alike sites where you land after mistyping an address or by clicking on a link supplied in the e mail or ad. Always type in the URL and don’t just click on the link.

DROP SHIPPERS
You can get products to sell via e bay or/and your website by using the services of a drop shipper. A reliable drop shipper will not ask you for a fee. They will allow you to copy pictures of the products they sell. Prices are about half you would pay for retail.

When writing articles to directories, we are not allowed to list URL’s for places to go for free information, such as drop shippers, ebay, and other places. If your interested you can go to our website and in our archives there is over 2 years of free Internet information listing with URL’s. My website is listed in the article source at the bottom of this article.

If you have a website they will allow you to move any listing on their site to yours. You set your price on the product/s you transfer. When an order comes in place the order they will ship it out for you under your shipping label and not include any of their material.

A good way to promote is join as an affiliate, transfer a couple specials onto your site, with a link back to your affiliate page. The cost of setting up a web site is minimum. Check out my website archive for drop ship firms. Transfer a couple specials onto your site, with a link back to your affiliate page. The cost of setting up a web site is minimum.

Cash Advances – Are They More Seamless Than Ever?

We are all fallible and subject to imperfections that we usually have little control of altogether! One minute we think we’re doing alright and the next, we are strapped for cash like never before. Sure you’ve been there, right?

What is coming in in terms of money is simply not enough to suffice when all the expenditures ‘come a knocking’! Cash advances are sometimes referred to as a short term ‘safety net’ whereby utilizing your next payday the leverage or basis for the transaction.

It can allow you to catch your breath long enough to ‘put out any fires’ that tend to smolder in the distance. This concept is far from new and until just recently, has been fully perfected in the online financial environments. The internet lenders are more seamless than ever and much less ‘choppy’ than your local pawnshop or cash advance store down the road.

You major benefits are savings! What do you save? Time is one of the primary goals people look to achieve in terms of savings. This is done with many 1 hour advance lenders who have practically the quickest turn around times lending cash on earth!

In addition, you don’t have to spend any money on gas getting there or risking you physical health in route. This can be huge if you don’t live near a payday loan store anywhere. Cash advanced in an online capacity shields your privacy more readily than any physical lender could do for you; because at that point, your identity and what your there for, is exposed.

Turn around times are fabulous and only getting better as well as overall costs associated. Therefore, it is an excellent time now(if your inclined) to obtain a fast cash advance via a highly reputable lender on the web!

Quick Finance – Caveat Loans And Bridging Finance

Short term loans help people lessen their immediate money troubles, because of increasing everyday expenses and no sufficient income to meet the requirements. These loans by and large come in a shape of payday loans, in that you can obtain immediate cash with the settlement time between two and three weeks. Lots of lenders in Australia offer their service online that let you submit an application for the finance, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

If you need fast money, then a caveat loan, short term loan or bridging finance from any Australian finance Centre can help.

Caveat loans

Fundamentally, caveat loans are all about when lenders offer the borrower fast money, in return for their property as defense for the finance.

The submission of applications for these loans is extremely quick, and it is likely to be short term from approximately one month to four months. Usually the borrower can get the money inside 24 hours after the request has been launched, and in the majority of cases, having a bad credit documentation does not have an effect on your possibility of successfully achieving it. In other words, these loans are finance for property.

The reason caveat loans are provided for assets is since the borrower have to secure an asset against it, and the majority of the time, the assets consists of realty properties or vehicles, as other kinds of assets are usually not acknowledged to be a defense for such loans.

Bridging Finance

By explanation, Bridging Finance is a short-term loan used to buy business property.

This is something that can come in very helpful, conditional on your particular circumstances. There are two major points that you need to think about before you choose a Bridging Finance package, your wants and the condition of the property market.

One of the main benefits of Bridging Finance is that it will let you close on a property and buy a new property before you get rid of your existing one. You will need to assess your present situation to decide if your wants give good reason for taking on this sort of finance.

Paying off your Bridging Loan at the ending of the term usually depends on your capacity to sell your existing property. If it is not sold in the obligatory time, then you will have to pay the existing loan on your present property, your new property and the newly transformed Bridge Finance, too. If you think that this might be the likelihood then be sure to take a package that can be changed to business Loans if the need comes up. Or else, you might have to come up with the complete finance amount at the conclusion of the funding time.

Fashion Shopping For Tall Ladies

Shopping for a tall lady, 5’9″ and up, is a difficult task. You have to consider the inseam on slacks and jeans, the length of sleeves and where the waistline falls. Being 5’10”, I am notorious for taking the hem out of pants.

Places NOT to shop:

When shopping for pants that cater to taller women, you want to stray away from Bebe, Victoria Secret, Metro Style, Macys,Dillards, and Banana Republic. Trust me. I have tried slacks from ALL of the stores above and none of them quite seem long enough. Every now and again Bebe, which caters to petites, will carry a pair of slacks with an inseam greater than 33 inches.

Where TO shop:

When shopping for slacks and you are tall. The internet is your friend. While the selection of tall slacks in stores such as Banana Republic and Ann Taylor may be limited, these stores offer longer inseams when shopping online. J Crew is another store that offers a great tall selection online. If you would like to walk into a store for slacks, The Gap, Express and New York and Company carry longer lengths in slacks.

Denim

When shopping for denim jeans for tall ladies, the same stores listed above will work. However, if you are into designer denim, you would want to learn which brands cater to tall ladies. Rock and Republic and Seven of all Mankind have longer inseams. When shopping for denim for someone 5’9″ or over, you would want to look for a 34 inch inseam. Designer denim brands like True Religion and Citizens of Humanity, cater to shorter ladies.

Commercial Real Estate – Listing Tools and Tactics

Attracting new property listings is an ongoing task that requires constant focus for the commercial real estate agent. Whether they are new or old to the industry, prospecting for new listings is (or should be) ongoing. Clear tactics are required if you want to dominate your market and the other real estate agents around you.

Without new listings you cannot generate the commissions and quality of enquiry you require. What I will give you here is a well proven base plan and set of tactics for generating listing opportunity.

Understand this, the more enquiries you generate from the people you know, the better your real estate business. You have to know a lot of people to be successful in the real estate business.

With the advances in technology today you would think that this is prospecting process is easier than ever before, although some people still struggle with it.

So where can you generate the property enquiry that you need? Here is a list that will help you on the way:

  • Old real estate sales and leasing activity over the last few years will give you the names and dates of transactions that will soon potentially come back in the market. That means you should use the old property sales and leasing records from your region as a base of fresh prospecting and cold calling. Most investment property will change hands every 5 to 7 years. It is a cycle that allows you to target properties that have been held for some time by the same owners. They are likely to need your help soon.
  • Business owners may lease or own their premises. Make the call to these people or drop in at their offices to find out what they need and want in the way of property.
  • Walk the streets that contain the good properties and the good businesses. Leave your business card and pick up the business card of all the managers or proprietors.
  • Ask the people you meet in the local businesses about the local properties around them and any changes that they know about. This is a great source of market intelligence. They know the market around them better than you do.
  • Vacant land should always be researched as to the owner and what they are doing about the property. You can put your sign on vacant land if the owner lists their property with you. The more signs you get up the better for your market image and market share.
  • Old property listings that other agents have failed to sell or lease should be monitored in case the listing can be reactivated. As part of this keep a tally on the time on market for the listings. This will tell you when the market is changing with certain listing types.
  • Make cold calls on developers, solicitors, accountants, and architects. They all have an interest in commercial property and will have clients that need help from time to time.
  • Rent rolls and other property managements held by other agents are prime targets for new business. By their very nature, the owners of these properties are investors, and many investors own more than one property.

You and your daily activities are at the center of this prospecting process. Prospecting is hard for some people given that the level of self-discipline required is high. Many salespeople will find something else to do that is easier. Any excuse will do to avoid prospecting. Many salespeople will take the easy prospecting process of dropping flyers and sending generic mail to hundreds of local businesses where they do not follow up. Does this really work? Yes but only to a minor degree and the road to success is slow.

You have to talk to people if you want to fast track your listings and opportunity.

If you take on this challenge and practice your prospecting processes until they are second nature, then you will create better results. As you improve, the more meetings and presentations you can do, and this leads to listings.

It pays to keep a running tally of your calls, meetings, and conversions to listings. This helps you understand when you are getting better at the prospecting process. So who are you going to call? This is the research part of the prospecting model and every day you do a bit more research into the properties and the areas that you are interested in. This also helps you understand what is going on in your area.

New property listings help you build your database. It is the database that will bring you so much market share and qualified enquiry. The bigger and more accurate your database, the more people you can call when some enquiry or opportunity arises. Your database is a very personal thing and should be maintained by you personally. This helps you take ownership of the process.
