Whomever's site is the featured site when the page loads will get FREE hosting of one domain for one month. It's just our way of saying thank you.

Google AdWords Giveaway

I have three $100 Google AdWords coupons and I'll give one to each person that reads this and e-mails me that they want the $100 worth of AdWords credit. These coupons expire on 22 April 2011 so don't delay.

These coupons can only be used by someone setting up a new AdWords account. This is free advertising!! Just set up an AdWords account and set your limit at $100 and you don't have to pay for anything.

ChatBadge

ChatBadge is a user friendly, live chat tool that can increase online sales/reservations and improve your company's customer service. ChatBadge is in Beta Testing (they're finished building their site but are testing for any problems) and offering persons signing up during Beta Testing a FREE LIFETIME account (for a limited time). If you don't sign up now and testing finishs, you'll have to pay yearly for this capability.

ChatBadge can help your Web site visitors find what they need, before getting frustrated and leaving your site. Your Web site becomes easier and more satisfying to use. Everyone is happier!

Real-time conversation with your Web site visitors allows you to understand their needs, increase empathy, answer their queries, attract new customers and cross-sell products. The bottom line is increased sales or reservations.

We have it on our site if you'd like to try it. Here's some advice from our experience. Sign up for an account and design the badge the way you want it (colors, borders, message, etc.). Then send us the script when you get to the part about "Does anyone else need this script." You'll need Google Talk installed on your computer to receive notification that someone wants to chat with you. Once you obtain and install Google Talk go back to ChatBadge and sign-in. There are a number of tabs in your account that need to be filled in for ChatBadge to work. Don't forget this returning to your ChatBadge account or nothing will work properly.

If all this sounds like more work than you're willing to do, but you want the capability on your site, we will do most of the work for you. You'll need to register for Google Talk and download Google Talk to your computer. Then send us an e-mail with your username and password and we'll get a ChatBadge account in your name, modify the badge to your site's color scheme, and install it on your site.
