Anyone buying into the Facebook IPO would do well to take short term gains to the bank – no long term sustaining power in this stock.

Cincinnati Ad Agency-What’s the best ad agency in Cincinnati?

Are you looking for the best Cincinnati ad agency? If you’re looking for an agency that specializes in print advertising in newspapers or magazines, then I can’t really help you. But, if you’re looking for an agency that specializes in Cincinnati online advertising such as video marketing or pay per click management, then you might want to look at AmericasNewsNow.com. While the names sounds like they might be based in Chicago or New York, they are actually based in Cincinnati. Although they are a big news publisher, they have also done some fine work in creating online advertising campaigns for different brands and corporations.

While some companies and brands are still looking to advertise in newspapers and magazines, the really successful brands realize that online is the place to be. One option you might consider is pay per click advertising that can place your ad in front of millions of different customers. The key advantage here is that you don’t pay unless a customer clicks on and views your ad. Depending on what you are advertising, you might have to pay anywhere from 5 cents to twenty dollars to have a customer view your ad. The price of your ad depends on how competitive your keyword is. A keyword is something someone types into Google to search for. For example, lets say you have a company that helps clean up basements after they flood. You might want to target keywords like Cincinnati basement repair, or Cincinnati basement flooding company. If you are the only company in Cincinnati bidding on that keyword for Google, then your cost per click should be relatively inexpensive.

Besides pay per click advertising, some companies have also found video marketing to be very effective. Think of video marketing to be like a commercial on TV except it’s on the internet. One key advantage to video marketing online is that once you pay to put the video up, there usually is no further cost. Not only that, but your video is viewable years into the future for others to watch. A good firm like AmericasNewsNow.com can help you get your company videos up in no time and advise you on the best places to put your videos online and how the process works.

Finally, a third strategy to advertise online is call SEO or search engine optimization. As compared to pay per click, SEO usually doesn’t have a cost associated with each visitor. Usually you pay a firm to help you get to the front page of Google. That way, when someone searches for your keyword, such as Cincinnati  basement repair, your company website pops up on the first page of Google. Usually, SEO takes a few months to implement. SEO involves strategies like creating articles and videos about your products or services, posting those articles and videos online, and then getting them indexed by major search engines like Google.

Whether you’re looking for PPC management, video marketing advice, or SEO and search engine optimization for your website, the right ad agency can play a huge role in getting you seen online to help your present and new customers find you to help create a bigger bottom line.

(Video) Infamous Don’t Tase Me Bro Video – Why John Kerry Didn’t Get Elected

(Video) Why John Kerry Didn’t Get Elected – Don’t Tase Me Bro

It never ceases to amaze me how old white guys can be so clueless. Dumbfounded and speechless, John Kerry stands by in awkward silence and disbelief as he allows some University of Florida student to get tased just because he doesn’t want to answer his question. We originally did a story on the tasing that you can read, but every time I see this I am more and more amazed at how out of touch politicians are.

Suffice it to say, it’s probably a good thing you didn’t get elected John.

See How Obama Slaps Syria Around

Obama Gives Syria A Smackdown – See How

With the expiration date of the national emergency with Syria coming up, President Obama is forced to continue to block exports to Syria based on their actions in the international community. Although the Whitehouse seems to concede that Syria has done some work in trying to stem the flow of terrorists into Iraq, more needs to be done. See the President’s executive order below which describes the details.

Notice Continuing the National Emergency with Respect to Syria.

NOTICE

– – – – – – –

CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT

TO THE ACTIONS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF SYRIA

On May 11, 2004, pursuant to his authority under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C.

1701-1706, and the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003, Public Law 108-175, the President issued Executive Order 13338, in which he declared a national emergency with respect to the actions of the Government of Syria. To deal with this national emergency, Executive Order 13338 authorized the blocking of property of certain persons and prohibited the exportation or re-exportation of certain goods to Syria. On April 25, 2006, and February 13, 2008, the President issued Executive Order 13399 and Executive Order 13460, respectively, to take additional steps with respect to this national emergency.

The President took these actions to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States constituted by the actions of the Government of Syria in supporting

terrorism, maintaining its then existing occupation of Lebanon, pursuing weapons of mass destruction and missile programs, and undermining U.S. and international efforts with respect to the stabilization and reconstruction of Iraq.

While the Syrian government has made some progress in suppressing networks of foreign fighters bound for Iraq, its actions and policies, including continuing support for terrorist organizations and pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and missile programs, continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. As a result, the national emergency declared on May 11, 2004, and the measures adopted on that date, on April 25, 2006, in Executive Order 13399, and on February 13, 2008, in Executive Order 13460, to deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond May 11, 2010. Therefore, in

accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1622(d), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared with respect to certain actions of the Government of Syria. The United States will consider changes in the policies and actions of the Government of Syria in determining whether to continue or terminate this national emergency in the future and would welcome progress by the Government of Syria on these matters.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

BARACK OBAMA

THE WHITE HOUSE,

May 3, 2010.

Does Obama Really Follow Justin Bieber on Twitter?

Hmm, I Wonder Who Obama Follows On Twitter-Justin Bieber Maybe?

Yesterday we ran a story about how you could follow the Whitehouse and Obama on Twitter. Today we’re going to take that one step further. Did you ever wonder who Obama follows on Twitter? You would think that would be a good list to get on. Well, as you’d expect, he follows groups like the IRS, the U.S. Embassy, the Secretary of the Navy, the Army, Veteran Affairs. But there are also a few individuals he follows. Like who?

Well, as you would expect, he Obama follows his right hand man Press Secretary Bobby Gibbs. I still don’t get why people call him Robert Gibbs because he definitely strikes me as a Bobby. He also follows a guy by the name of BillBurton44 who is some sort of deputy secretary that likes to get on John McCain for not being more fluent with computers. Reading Burton’s tweets was kind of like watching paint dry so I wouldn’t recommend following him. However, something on his Twitter account said it was an official Whitehouse Twitter page and as such, the tweets could be officially archived. So that might be kind of cool if you could get one of your tweets officially archived. Wait, doesn’t Google archive all your information anyway? Oh well…

And if that isn’t weird enough, he also follows KateatState i.e. Kate Jacobs Stanton. Exactly, that’s what I was thinking–who is she? Well, get this–she used to work for Google as a moderator, whatever that is–yes you read that correctly. Obama appointed her to a newly created position–one of those 4 million jobs created–of Director of Citizen Participation. What, are your serious? Are you kidding me? I’m betting she makes over 6 figures a year and I’m not sure that’s the best use of taxpayer money. Actually, don’t worry about your tax dollars being wasted here. Katie is busy tweeting about important political stuff like Maddow attending bar at the Washing correspondent get together after party termed “nedrprom”. Do I detect a secret crush here? I know aman crush is a bromance–what’s a woman crush–a worance? That kinda sounds like Scooby Doo–but I digress. Katie Stanton was so busy doing her new government job tweeting all day long she forgot to attend her son’s play at school–imagine that. Twitter followers were asked if she should buy him ice cream or Bakugan (video game). Yah, that’s a no brainer. She further mused that missing the play was OK if she could get Justin Bieber’s autograph at the nerdprom–I’m seriously not kidding here–these are your hard-earned tax dollars at work.

So while originally I planned on just writing about Whitehouse followers, this whole nerdprom thing has me a little upset. Among the invitees to nerprom were Jon Bon Jovi and Jay Leno as well as the aforementioned teen throb Justin Bieber. At this point now, I don’t think anything would surprise me. You have to give Obama credit though, he is definitely catering to pop stars and Hollywood. He knows that by getting their support, you get the support of the masses that follow them.

I just hope the next time we come under terrorist attack that the counsel of such wise strategists like Leno and Bieber will prove to have been productive.
