This is an important part of your email management. When you no longer need an email, it should be deleted. When you first delete an email, your software will sendrepparttar email torepparttar 117028 Trash Bin. Your email is not actually deleted until you first empty your trash bin.

Emptying your trash bin compressesrepparttar 117029 mailboxes from whererepparttar 117030 email was originally filed. This is absolutely paramount torepparttar 117031 protection of your email data. If you go too long between compressing your email data, then your email data could become corrupted and you might need assistance in recovering your email data.

Even after you have emptied your trash, Compressing Folders is a recommended step to prevent other data corruption. Once you understand that an email does not actually move from one folder to another untilrepparttar 117032 folder is compressed, then you can better appreciate this advice.

As an example, when Email A comes into your main Inbox,repparttar 117033 data connected to Email A appears in two files. One file containsrepparttar 117034 header and body ofrepparttar 117035 email. The other file contains onlyrepparttar 117036 email header information.

When an email is moved from one folder torepparttar 117037 other, onlyrepparttar 117038 header information is actually moved. The body information will not be deleted fromrepparttar 117039 original folder until which timerepparttar 117040 original folder is compressed.

This explainsrepparttar 117041 purpose of emptyingrepparttar 117042 trash AND compressing folders. Ifrepparttar 117043 email was simply moved fromrepparttar 117044 Inbox to another folder, then emptyingrepparttar 117045 trash is not enough. The original placement ofrepparttar 117046 email is not actually removed fromrepparttar 117047 file that containsrepparttar 117048 body information untilrepparttar 117049 message has been designated for compression.

OUTLOOK EXPRESS: Click on Edit - Empty 'Deleted Items' Folder. To compressrepparttar 117050 remaining folders, click on Tools - Options, then click onrepparttar 117051 tab for Maintenance.

NETSCAPE MAIL: Click on File - Empty Trash Folder. To compress repparttar 117055 mailboxes, click on File - Compress Folders.

Understanding the Difference Between Marketing and Promotion

Written by Stone Evans

Continued from page 1

At $10, our projected weekly earnings are $10,000. When we sell repparttar product at $50, we know that we can earn $25,000 per week. Most importantly, we know that we can earn $29,250 when our product is priced at $45.

Withrepparttar 117027 imaginary testing we have done on our imaginary product, we can easily see that selling our product at $45 per item will earn us more money overrepparttar 117028 long haul.

Thus, when we makerepparttar 117029 decision for a national rollout of our product, then we will price our product at $45.

Of course, this is a very simplistic analysis ofrepparttar 117030 point I am trying to make. Though simple, I believe this analogy will help you understandrepparttar 117031 methods of developing a product's prices.


Promotion, onrepparttar 117032 other hand, isrepparttar 117033 process of notifyingrepparttar 117034 consumers for your product or service of your availability to serve them.

Methods of promotion vary distinctly and should be arranged to meet very specific goals.

As with product, place and price, promotion should not be left to chance. You should test every ad, every media, and every price point to determinerepparttar 117035 best bang for your promotional dollars.


If you are an online promoter or marketer, please factor inrepparttar 117036 most important element concerningrepparttar 117037 cost of your promotions.

What element is that? Your time!

Value your time at a certain dollar amount, and figure in your time intorepparttar 117038 cost of your promotional accounting.

I say this because too many online promoters lose sight of this concept and spend 20 hours to generate one sale while using free advertising. Even if you rate your time atrepparttar 117039 federal minimum wage, then you will have invested $105 of your time for one sale that might only net you a gross sale of $45!


Most people who run a business onrepparttar 117040 Internet call themselves marketers. Yet, most of these same people are really just promoters wrapped inrepparttar 117041 label of a marketer.

True marketers do not promote without a lot of advance work. They spend time planning, testing and measuring their actions and results to getrepparttar 117042 most out of every dollar spent and earned.

Entrepreneurs finesserepparttar 117043 art of marketing as they build their company into a major enterprise.

If you are a promoter who does not keep an eye onrepparttar 117044 total marketing equation, then you are bound to fail.

If you do call yourself a marketer, then do what a professional marketer does. Make sure that every dollar spent is spent well. Make sure that every dollar earned is put to good use. Market well so that whenrepparttar 117045 people ofrepparttar 117046 next generation look at your life, they will see a fine example of a successful entrepreneur that they will strive to emulate.
