One of the most versatile of such programs currently on the market, this software can access data on many different database formats including the popular mediums of MySQL, Oracle and MS SQL Server. It also supports many of the lesser known database formats as well such as Firebird and Sybase amongst others.

This data export tool also provides you with the ability to extract data from the supported database formats and export them into other common, simpler formats for easier review, distribution or printing. Data can be exported into HTML, RTF and XML formats amongst others. Data can also be exported directly to Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel and Access.

Save money and time and get reliable results quickly by having this universal data export solution at your disposal. You can get virtually instantaneous results without having to worry about issues such as human error.

Forex Income Engine Review by Hugh Robinson – ArticleCity.com

by: Hugh Robinson


“The Quickest & Most Flexible Way to attain Day Trading Liberty In The Foreign exchange Markets & Shield Yourself From Risk…. Especially If You Are Inexperienced & Have Little Time… GUARANTEED…”

While stocks continue to tumble and companies go bankrupt, foreign fx trading, particularly forex day trading, can be profitable, whichever way the currencies swing — as long as you have a trustworthy, proved methodology, and you stick to your ‘rules’.

The Foreign exchange Earnings Engine is good for the trader prepared to chance only a touch at any point — with as little as $400 in a trading account.

Forex Revenue Engine was released in December 2008 by Bill & Greg Poulos, publishers of the top selling Foreign exchange Profit Accelerator and other coaching courses for the stock exchange, is this new day trading course that may work profitably in any timeframe.

Extremely simple and fast to apply compared to several other day trading courses on offer, Foreign exchange Revenue Engine will fill an opening in the coaching market. FIE is different from their successful Foreign exchange Profit Accelerator program with 4 separate techniques ( doubtless too much to grasp or master by some forex traders ) by teaching a single, but flexible day trading system which can be learned and applied fast. FIE will be excellent for those traders who need to invest a restricted amount in their first trading account and have a fast, straightforward to understand and implement, single method strategy of day trading.

Differences between FPA and FIE.

Anyone who has studied or traded the Currency exchange markets knows that there’s more than a technique to trade these markets. Those preferring to trade on an end-of-day trading basis only may not milk day trading. Naturally, there are numerous traders that day trade the Foreign exchange markets as well as trade on an end of day basis.

Forex Profit Accelerator covers four different trading secrets, while Foreign exchange Earnings Engine focusses on the best one for day trading.

As profits ( and confidence in the system ) build up, traders can safely increase their funds to the more standard $5K or $10K.

A unique feature and benefit of all Bill & Greg Poulos’ Profits Run courses, Currency exchange Revenue Engine is their one year unlimited e-mail support. Many corporations offer not much more than a 3rd party helpdesk that gives standard answers from a limited base of FAQ.

Every FIE owner gets his or her support e-mail answered swiftly by one of many highly-trained Profits Run Inc. Staff members.

Technical trading questions are customarily replied to at once by Bill Poulos himself.

This course has 2 parts to it – the course itself, and all of the student support materials.

The CDs include:

* Module 1: Background, Overview & Trading Examples
* Module 2: Trading Rules
* Module 4: Forex Brokers, Charting Software & Trading Platform
* Module 5: Risk Management & Discipline

The 2nd part of Foreign exchange Earnings Engine includes student support and consistent chase up. One of the best things about this system is that Bill Poulos does not vanish after you get the course. You will also gain access to the members internet site.

Forex day trading Liberty can be yours today if you are taking action. The choice is yours….

Are you prepared to triple your profit potential in the Currency exchange markets again, at any time of the day, beginning with as little as a $500 trading account? If you answered yes then you’re in luck because Bill Poulos is releasing his Foreign exchange Revenue Engine 2 on June 16th….

How to Select the Best Open Source Shopping Cart Software by …

by: Ricky Bracken


Get your business up and running online using a free open source shopping cart.

Open source software has taken the marketplace by storm. Small business owners and multinational companies alike are using open source software to run their daily business operations. Today, open source software can meets the needs of various industries and market segments including those requiring an application server, web server, productivity suite, CRM tool, project management, integrated development environment (IDE), point-of-sale software, enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and ecommerce shopping cart software just to name a few.

Open source software provides a low cost alternative to traditional proprietary software. Merchants have the ability to customize open source products to meet their specific business requirement. When trying to select a shopping cart system, to run your online store, business owners must evaluate and assign value to the technical and operational specifications before deploying to production. Since one size does not fit all; merchants must choose the best product based on their unique requirements.

So how do you choose the best open source shopping cart software? First we’ll start by listing the major players in the small business market. In order to make my list the open source shopping cart must meet the 10 minimum requirements listed below.

Required Features:

1. Centrally controlled source code
2. An active developer community
3. Mature third party extensions (including PCI Compliant payment gateway extensions)
4. Support Linux and Microsoft Windows hosting environments
5. Software download must include all features listed on website (e.g. not crippleware or demoware)
6. Well written installation guide and user guide. Documentation may be available as a PDF document or as an HTML file.
7. Installs on a standard SSL certificate
8. Provides a custom notification email to the merchant and customer
9. Provides timely bug fixes and safe upgrade path
10. Installs in a dedicated and shared hosting environment

Now that we have our minimum requirements list we can begin to look at the top open source shopping cart programs. In my opinion, the top open source shopping carts for the small business market are:

• Magento Commerce
• VirtueMart
• osCommerce
• ZenCart
• CubeCart
• UberCart
• AbleCommerce

Each of the open source shopping carts listed above can be downloaded, installed and configured at no cost to the merchant. However, since most open source product installations come with a standard (non commercial quality) user interface most merchants will want to upgrade the GUI (graphical user interface). In order to upgrade the GUI and improve the end user experience merchants can choose to hire a web developer or simply purchase a custom template from sites like templatemonster.com. Template Monster (and others) provides thousands of affordable custom templates so merchants can easily deploy great looking online stores.

In order to ensure you’re selecting the best open source shopping cart for your business merchants should consider the following:

Capacity – The merchant must know and understand the product capacity limitation. For example, if you have a product catalog of 1000 products but the shopping cart has a 900 product limitation then that solution is not for you. Note: All of the open source products listed above have an unlimited product catalog.

Performance – If your ecommerce web store is slow customers will simply shop someplace else. Therefore, you must check performance with high user loads and with increased data loads. Both scenarios can bring a web store to its knees.

Community Support – Verify a strong development community exist. Review the online forums to see if the product has an active community of developers. Look for online questions then see how long it took for the user to get a response.

Technical Support – Ensure technical support is available via an active developer community or as a fee paid contract. There is nothing worse than having a production issue and waiting 5 days or more to get an answer.

Payment Gateway Support – In order to accept and process credit card payments the open source shopping cart must provide third party payment gateway extensions. Free Payment Modules from Planetauthorize.Net Payment Gateway (and others) are available for the leading open source shopping carts.

Search Engine Friendly URL – Once you deploy your ecommerce web store you must submit your web store to the top search engines. In order to be indexed by the search engines your online store must have search engine friendly URLs.

For more information visit us online at planetauthorize.com.

Our payment solutions include PlanetAuthorize Payment Gateway, Certified Shopping Carts, CRM Payment Modules, POS Terminals and Mobile payment solutions.

Book Review: Forty Bible Study Methods by Andy Deane by John …

by: John Gruenster

“Learn to Study the Bible” (ISBN 978-1-60791-576-8) is a much needed book that was born out of the author’s personal frustrations in communicating good Bible study techniques to teenagers. Adults would do well not to bypass it because of its origins! Andy Deane has given us a wealth of Bible study knowledge and how-to’s in 47 digestible chapters every Christian can gain from. The book is divided into the following major topics:

Introduction – Even the introduction is packed with useful instruction concerning Bible study. The author stresses the value and joy of studying God’s Word and reminds us of eight benefits of studying God’s Word: it assures of our salvation; it cleanses us from sin; it gives peace; it brings joy; if guides our decisions; it helps us in our prayers; it strengthens; it leads to success.

The Foundations of Bible Study – The author follows his own advice about learning to ask questions that lead to understanding. Using the time proven method of observation, interpretation, and application we are encouraged to approach every scripture passage with three important questions: what does it say, what does it mean, and what does it ask me to do? The chapter on daily devotions encourages us to move beyond dry academics and encounter God in His Word. Some good tips are offered here on how to establish a consistent and fruitful quiet time.

Basic Bible Study Methods – Though he keys on inductive Bible study, Deane emphasizes there is no one way to study God’s Word. In the “Timothy Method” he suggests approaching a scripture passage looking for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction. A list of exhaustive questions is given to ask as one approaches any scripture and the learner is instructed how to rethink and restate what he has read. In each instance, clear and understandable illustrations are provided.

Major Bible Study Methods – In this section Deane shows how to do verse-by-verse charts, do chapter outlines and summaries, overview a book of the Bible, and how to study major topics and themes. There is also an excellent chapter on doing word studies specifically aimed at those with no formal Bible training.

Creative Bible Study Methods – Recognizing different people learn different ways, Learn to Study the Bible presents various ways to approach God’s word with freshness and insight. In this section we learn everything from comparing translations to the insights we can gain from the author calls “the skeptics method.”

Studying Specific Passages – Again, using a very hand-on approach the author deals with wisdom literature, questions Jesus asked, prayer, miracles, parables, and types in the Bible.

Study Methods for Younger Students – The author returns to the subject that prompted the book and deals with how to teach teens in unique and powerful ways.

The on-line site for Learn to Study the Bible offers some fantastic tools available for free to those who purchase the book among these are: a list of recommended commentaries, tools to help complete a word-by-word passage study, a Bible translation comparison, sample thirty-one day studies to compare with your finished studies, and Andy’s list of favorite bible software and links. Combined with these tools and the author’s refreshing style Learn to Study the Bible will keep the attention of young and old driving all to seek a deeper personal understanding of God’s Word. Has mentioned earlier, each method is followed by handwritten examples of notes a person might come up with using that method. Doing this moves the reader from bare academics to a living interaction with the book and, more importantly, the Bible. Visit http://www.biblestudybook.net to read more.

This is a great resource to encourage everyone to get back into the Scriptures and take a view them from a fresh perspective. This will be a book a serious student of the Bible will use for years to come both for him and others he is seeking to lead. Learn to Study the Bible will also make a great discipling tool in teaching others how to study the Bible for themselves.
To learn more about this new Christian book please visit http://www.learntostudythebible.com. There you will be able to read the endorsements, reviews, sample chapters and more. An ebook version is also available.

List PayDay Pro Review -easiest way to Make Money on the Internet …

by: Michael review

No doubt you’ve seen lots of articles already (including here) on making money about the internet. This one pulls it all together, and separates the great, unhealthy, and also the ugly. You CAN make money online, and NO, not everything out there is really a scam.

I’m going to be updating this regularly, to want to bookmark it, and sign in monthly or so.

things you’ll need:

1. “Read this, just for a little bit of inspiration”

I make about $3,000 a month about the internet. Not quite enough for me and my loved ones to live on, but a nice addition to my income just the same. It’s pretty easy, and pretty quick, to obtain a SMALL income stream started. It takes time and effort to construct it up. Might as well begin today.

2. “Take stock of that which you need to offer”

If you are a writer, programmer, designer, or photographer, you will find armloads of opportunities for you. For those who have a speciality of any type — carpentry, raising kids, planning vacations or weddings, playing Guitar Hero 3 — you can get taken care of your expertise. Even if you think all you can offer is time, there are many opportunities for you personally as well.

3. “Scan the available steps”

I’ve listed plenty of choices in the steps such as the following, all of them legitimate. Select the one that seems the very best fit for you personally and your skills, and start exploring.

4. “Freelance Work”

If you have a skill to provide, browse the various freelance sites (sometimes called “personal outsourcing”), like elance.com and guru.com (begin to see the Resources section for the links I mention). You are able to post your skills at these sites, so potential customers can check you out, and you can also look around for freelance projects that others have posted. You will find loads of opportunities for freelancers, in very varied fields. Common projects, though, are writing, computer or graphics design work, creating web pages, programming, writing brochures or reports, illustration, photography, and so on. Pay can be very good, especially after you’ve earned an excellent rating at one or even more from the freelancing sites. In the same time, though, remember that you’re rivaling freelancers from all over the world. Have a look at the “How Elance Works” video on the main page to get a quick overview.

5. “Try Writing Web Content”

There are a quite a number of ways to consider your skill as a writer and transform it into cash. One of these is right at eHow. Write brief “How to” articles on any topic of your choosing, and obtain paid for the content. The greater popular the content, the greater income you may expect. A great article brings in $50 each year or more. Write 10 top-notch articles, and that is $500. A hundred articles…you receive the picture. I can’t say enough good things about eHow. In my opinion, it’s the best wealth creation opportunity available. Google the word ‘ehow101’ to learn more about how to allow it to be work. UPDATE: eHow is now run through its parent company, Demand Media Studios (DMS). If you wish to apply to write for eHow or other DMS properties, in order to be an editor, check out the freelancer’s application at demandmedia.com.

6. “Write Product Review”

ConsumerSearch.com, a site owned by the N.Y. Times, pays freelance article writers no less than $350 per article for product reviews. That can be a sounds like good money (which is…and you can earn even more than that!), their particular make of reviews requires good research and writing skills, and takes a large amount of work. Check ’em out at consumersearch.com/jobs.

7. “More writing opportunities”

–At SoftwareJudge.com, write reviews of select software products…top reviews earn as much as $50 each. –Product Reviews. You might be acquainted with epinions.com, but did you know they pay cash permanently quality reviews. You will not get rich, but you can get started. –Suggest domains according to site descriptions at Pickydomains.com Get $25 for every name that’s chosen. –At Xomba.com, write whatever you feel like, and collect 50% associated with a advertising income from Adsense clicks your page. –Become a fledgling journalist at examiner.com, and cover a special topic area in your neck from the woods…they pay pretty much. –Other writing sites include associatedcontent.com, firehow.com, helium.com, and Squidoo. In fact, one of my eHow colleagues has come up with a very nice Squidoo ‘lens’ with 101 sites where one can receive money to supply content…take a look in the Resources section.

8. “Check out Q&A Sites”

I earn much of my income being an online researcher, answering folks questions on everything on the planet: investments, market research, divorce law, homework help…take your pick. If this sounds like your cup of tea, here are some resources to explore: –The Association of Independent Information Professionals (aiip.org) can help you build you have Q&A website and business. I’ve built my research business at xooxleanswers.com, and it is a steadily growing income source for me personally. –I also work with Uclue.com Though they are not accepting new researchers right now, it’s worth a look to determine how a well-developed Q&A site works. –Another Q&A site is JustAnswer, plus they offer small payments for answers to questions.

9. “Earn money out of your own blog or website”

The key is to generate as much traffic as possible, and to have your visitors click ads and affiliate links. The more people visiting your site, clicking on ads, and buying affiliate products, the greater income you can earn. Just like this sounds, income is generally more a trickle than a flood. But again, steadily building your site (or sites), and building traffic, is the key to generating a steadily growing stream of income. Google Adsense is easily the most commonly used service for placing banner and text ads on blogs and websites. As I’ve learned to maximise Adsense income through the years, I’ve come to recognize this as one of the best income-generating opportunities available. You can also incorporate in-text ads (the colored, underlined text with small pop-up ads). I love InfoLinks.com with this, and Kontera.com is yet another popular service. Affiliate ads usually pay whenever a sale is made for a product. Amazon.com has one of the very well-known affiliate programs that you to sell books or other Amazon products in your site or blog, and earn a cut from the sale. Other good affiliate resources are Commission Junction at cj.com, LinkShare.com, and AssociatePrograms.com.

10. “Blog With the Best of Them”

If you don’t have a site of your own, starting a blog is fairly easy at sites like Blogger.com, and WordPress.com. Blogs make money through online advertising and affiliate sales, such as with the Amazon.com affiliates program. Blogger causes it to be very simple to automatically place Google Adsense ads on your blog. Also, at Orble.com, you can take ownership of an abandoned blog with a specific focus, like Film, or Travel, and collect a portion from the ad revenues. The advantage of this really is that the blog is already well-represented in search engines, and can often generate a lot more traffic than a new blog of your. See Orble under the Resource links for more information.

11. “Sell your photos”

At sites like istockphoto.com and shutterpoint.com you are able to upload still photos or videos available, and receive a royalty payment every time someone makes use of your content.

12. “Take Online Surveys”

I mention survey work with a decent deal of trepidation…the surveys are tedious, the pay is meager, there are many sites which are dubious, or out and out scams. Probably the most legitimate operation I know is GlobalTestMarket.com. They provide real surveys, plus they pay real money. Again…tedious, and earning requires a long, long time. CashCrate.com also pays users to take online surveys. They strike me as legitimate, but I confess, I don’t have any first-hand knowledge about it, so approach with caution… SurveyScout.com is yet another possibility, but unlike CashCrate, they charge a membership fee an email psychic reading started (Boo!). I’ve also heard some negative feedback from users of the site, so proceed with caution (should you proceed at all!).

13. “Teaching and Tutoring”

Search on [ Online tutoring ] and you will uncover dozens of sites within this booming corner from the internet. Many accept applications for online tutors, with variable rates and topic areas. Two to consider are tutor.com and ehomeworkhelp.com

14. “Check into online “Jury Duty””

Here’s a strange one. Lawyers searching for feedback how a case will play before a jury can make use of online e-jury sites to solicit input from the kind of average citizens that show on juries. Yes, you get paid. Fees for complex cases can go beyond $50, though $20 is more typical. To function as a web-based juror, take a look at onlineverdict.com, or trialpractice.com. Be aware, though, that no sites I’ve registered at has ever actually contacted me for any jury case, so I’m not sure just how active these services are. If anyone knows more about them, please leave a remark in the Comments.

15. “Become an online office assistant”

At TeamDoubleClick, you are able to sign up for temporary jobs being an office assistant, handling correspondence, emails, bookkeeping, data entry, and other office jobs. Think of it as an online temp agency for virtual work. Pay is varied, but you are not obliged to take jobs that don’t meet your financial needs.

16. “Play games”

At moola.com, you can get paid to play. This might be the strangest one yet, and that i can’t personally attest to it (I’ve only tinkered using the site), however it looks legitimate. Moola starts you off giving a penny, which you’ll then double, and double again, through a variety of games and activities. Presumably, they make oodles of money through ads, and therefore are prepared to throw a lot of it your way by taking part in their zany set of games and marketing gimmicks. They call themselves a “Massively Multiplayer Rewards Game”. It’s too complicated to explain here, but worth a look.

17. “Participate in crowdsource design”

“Crowdsourcing” may be the buzzword for getting many people to complete your work for you. If you are proficient at designing such things as t-shirts, logos, fancy fonts, and other graphics, have a look at the challenges at 99designs.com and threadless.com. In case your design is chosen, you can collect tons of dollars.

18. “More blogging opportunities”

So how exactly does $100 a month sound for writing several blog posts every week? That’s what you may be paid (actual range is $84-140) if you achieve accepted as a blogger at Creative Weblogging. They’re a large blog network, and appear to have mastered the art of monetizing their many sites. All they need are people to write them, and keep the content fresh. UPDATE: Creative Weblogging has changed hands and is changing how — or if — its smart bloggers. Stay tuned for further updates.

19. “Earn with any type of content”

Blogging, articles, photos, video, take your pick. Flixya offers 100% of ad revenue to anyone who posts at their website (you need to have your own Google Adsense account to sign up). Words, pictures, videos, whatever ya got. Post it, generate some traffic, and collect some ad clicks. (Haven’t tried it yet myself, but Flixya includes a good reputation).

20. “Just Visit”

Another site that pays for content is mylot.com, but they also promise earnings everytime you use the site!. They also pay for referrals. Haven’t given them a test run yet, so use them with caution, but they seem worth exploring, a minimum of. If you have experience with them, please post a comment, below.

21. “Listen to music”

At slicethepie.com, you can get paid for hearing music. Say what!!! Yep, listen to upcoming artists, and review their music. The more reviews you are writing — and also the better you’re at spotting new talent — the more you can get paid. Some folks are pulling in several dollars per review.

22. “Typing and Dictation”

If you have good typing skills, consider Speak-Write.com, a web-based dictation service.

23. “Stay focused”

You can participate in online focus groups at 2020research.com, in which you review a product you’ve used, or discuss an issue of great interest to you. Payment ranges from about $50-150 per session. Participants are usually asked to join a group once or twice annually.

24. “Work for Google”

Ha, ha…couldn’t resist. However, you can earn through Google by posting content at Google Knol. This online encylopedia-like site is really a place where anyone can contribute content, and you will “monetize” your time and efforts by placing Adsense ads on your article to generate revenue. I wrote a Knol about eHow. You can see it by searching for the word ehow101.

25. “Review websites for usability”

You will get paid for reviewing websites. Usertesting.com pays $10 per website review, where you provide feedback on quality and usability. It’s not open-ended…you need to be selected to test, depending on your demographic profile.

26. “Earn money reading emails”

Really! Of course, there are ads involved, and also you may be asked to click some things, but it is simple enough. Be prepared to get 5-10 emails each day (more, if you register multiple email addresses), and earn several pennies per email. Check out InboxDollars.com.

27. “Try some everything”

Genuinejobs.com is really a legitimate work-at-home (telecommuting) site that lists countless jobs, none which require a fee, and several which can be done online. Registration is simple…worth checking out.

28. “Write for the NY Times”

Really! The Times owns two sites that regularly hire writers. I already mentioned ConsumerSearch.com up above, a site that uses freelance article writers to create detailed reviews of common consumer products…minimum pay is $350 per write-up, plus they do a large amount of hiring. About.com, another Times property, hires writers as guides. These positions, paying $725/month or even more, are difficult to get, but worth looking into.

29. “And remember…”

At the risk of repeating myself, eHow is among the most best opportunity available. Although making board through Demand Media Studios takes more work than at the eHow of old, will still be well worth the effort.

Now, let’s discuss about List PayDay Pro created by Steven James and how it might help you. I really hope this simple List PayDay Pro Review will assist you to differentiate whether List PayDay Pro is Scam or a Real Deal.

Web 2.0 And Why You Shouldn’t Fake Reviews by Simon Dance

by: Simon Dance


The latest offering from Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares aired on Channel 4 last night, followed the somewhat disastrous adventures of ex-boxer Mike and his wife Caron Ciminera as they struggled to run the Fish & Anchor, a restaurant in Lampeter, West Wales. Whilst the couple’s arguing appeared to better the food they were originally sending out (a mix of jarred sauces and home cook book trophy dishes) they did let slip on a fantastically poor bit of black hat optimisation, which I hope made all white hat SEOs laugh out loud.

If there was one lesson to take away from the show, it would be – Don’t fake reviews!

In order to gauged the feeling of the local community for the failing restaurant come sports bar, Ramsay conducted a search on Google for the Fish & Anchor, to which he was presented with a range of reviews, two of which were rather suspiciously from a character calling himself Michael or Mike Burns.

On the Wales portal of the BBC website Burns had posted “Well i don’t get excited about food too often, and having dined in Rick Stein’s, and Gordon Ramsay’s,I think i have found a better restaurant in West Wales”. On the SugarVine website he also posted “what a fantastic restaurant for couples, and families. it seems to have everything, the food has to be the best i have eaten (home or abroad) this place will go far”. Other online reviews echoed what has already been said, but with the dire state of the restaurant, its food, its reputation and its perception from both the local community and Ramsay itself, would it not be right to question who was telling the truth?

The restaurateur confessed to posting the reviews, his rational pointing to stimulating custom, however with any reactive strategy it requires a degree of foresight – and I am not sure he really thought through the wider ramification of posting these “inaccurate” reviews.

Firstly, a warning must be expressed. For example, if someone finds your restaurant or hotel via a positive (fake) review and they have a bad experience, there is a chance that they will post a true review to assist fellow users and generally have a rant. The initial seeding of this true review has the potential to lead to an onslaught of further reviews from other visitors who might not have otherwise posted. Don’t forget the saying “people don’t lead… they follow”.

But how can you manage your reviews and ultimately what your customers are saying about you? Well first and foremost, address the problem(s)!

You wouldn’t put a sticking plaster on a gun shot wound, so why think that a positive review about the quality of your food or the softest of your sheets is going to counteract the adversities of your customer service?

The customer is king, a point stressed by Ramsay, and one that should ring true for any business, after all, without them, where would we be?

By rectifying or at least making plans to manage any failings within your business, regardless of its size, will be the first step in managing your online reputation, but this is an area I will not going into comprehensive detail for this post. Instead, I will offer some simply pointers as to how to harness online reviews for good.

Sites like Trip Advisor, which boasts over 10,000,000 user generated reviews of various hotels, holidays and restaurants is gaining increasing weighting as an resource for honest and unbiased review and via its system of community recommendation it really has the power to drive custom, and in many instances, divert customer – the key factor being positive, and consistent reviews.

But if you do run a successful hotel or restaurant and wish to harness these social spaces, but wish to do so in a more ethical way than that demonstrated in Kitchen Nightmares than why not encourage your diners of hotel guests to post a review after their stay.

When the customer is paying their bill or even booking their hotel room why not take their email address, or even ask them to submit their business card in return for entry into a monthly prize draw for a free meal in the restaurant?

In addition to building up a client database by collecting this data – for use in promotional mailings including notifying customers of events, promotional and the launch of a new menu – you can also harness it to stimulate online reviews by dropping your customers a short email after their stay / meal, which might look something like the following example…

“Good afternoon Simon, and thank you very much for your booking at the Leapfrogg Restaurant, we hope you had an enjoyable meal.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our food and our attentive staff however we’re always striving to enhance and improve what we do, and as such we would appreciate you taking two minutes of your time to write a review for us at Trip Advisor (http://www.tripadvisor.com), a free travel guide and research website that allows users to post review and ratings.

Your comments are important to us, and will be used to improve the Leapfrogg restaurant.

Thank you very much for your time and we look forward to welcoming you again to the Leapfrogg restaurant in the near future.

Sincerely,

A Restaurateur
Leapfrogg restaurant
Brighton
Tel: 01273 669 450″

Of course, many of your requests will be ignored, but providing you are personal in your emails (a point we at Leapfrogg have mentioned previously in this blog) then you are more likely to get a response, and even if you only have a 5% success rate, this is still 5% of valuable customer feedback.

A point to which I will conclude this article is one which has stuck with me from London’s SMX, and one that I will most certainly be repeating from here on out is that “Yesterday’s news no longer wraps today’s fish and chips”. Online news and online content, including user generated reviews do not simply get binned like a newspaper at the end of the day, but they remain live, and can even appear within the search results for a brand keyword search… so isn’t it worth paying attention to what your customers are saying?
