Are you having hard a time collecting unpaid bills from your customers? Do you find it difficult to keep track of the payments your clients owe to your business? Do you want timely collection of your money? If yes then you need to hire a collection agency. Studies have shown that the possibility of collecting an unpaid bill drops dramatically within a few months, so it is important to act on those delinquent account sooner than later.

All companies at some point face delinquent accounts that need to be collected. Often it is easier to hire services of a professional collection agency to recover the overdue amounts. Collection agency locates the debtors and collects the money on your behalf. Studies have shown that the possibility of collecting an unpaid bill drops dramatically within a few months, so it is important to hire the collection agency early to improve the chances of successfully collecting the money and to recover a substantial portion of your unpaid accounts. For example according to a survey by the Commercial Collection Agency Section of the Commercial Law League of America, the probability of collecting an overdue account drops to 73 percent after just three months, to 57 percent after six months, and to only 29 percent after one year.

Using an agency saves you time and money. They are simply more effective than you can be in recovering delinquent account. They have trained professionals backed by phone systems, computers, and software to make them more effective at collections. Downside to using a collection agency is that they charge between 15 to 50 percent of what they recover. But it is worth every penny. You will still end up with more than what you would if you try to collect yourself.

But how do you know it is time to hire a collection agency? There are some tell tale signs that your customers are not going to pay you and you may need a professional agency to collect the payments.

One of the first signs of a customer unwilling to pay their bills is excessive complains that are mostly unwarranted. They will call in repeatedly to customer service and find problems, ask for discounts and even ask for free service. Some of the other common signs are customers simply denying that they owe you money despite concrete evidence. They will frequently ignore collection notices or will be unresponsive to your phone calls. As a last resort many of them will change their contact details without informing you. Their mail will bounce and the phone number on file will show as disconnected.

As a business owner, it is important to read into these signs of trouble and take action immediately. Ask your friends and business associates for recommendations. You can also find multiple collection agencies at a B2B marketplace on the internet or the yellow pages. Call up a few and ask them their modus operandi. It is important to feel comfortable with their approach before hiring them. Additionally make sure they are licensed to operate in your state and will work within the law to collect your money.

World leaders react to Obama win

October 1, 2016 2:08 am | No Comments

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Leaders from around the world have congratulated re-elected U.S. President Barack Obama on his success at the ballot box.

Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu stated that he “will continue to work with President Obama to preserve the strategic interests of Israel’s citizens” and described relations between the U.S. and Israel as “rock solid”. Some others within the ruling Likud party were not so optimistic about the relationship, with Knesset member Danny Danon criticising Obama for “ill-advised” policies towards Israel and hoping Obama “resets his course relating to Israel and our region for the next four years”.

A statement on behalf of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas expressed hope that Obama “continues his efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East”.

The British Prime Minister David Cameron took time from his tour of the Middle East to congratulate Obama and listed as shared priorities a trade deal between the U.S. and the United Kingdom as well as solving the crisis in Syria. Ed Miliband, leader of the opposition Labour Party, stated on Twitter that Obama’s success in the election was “based on building fairer economy and optimism about what politics can achieve.”

French leader François Hollande said in choosing Obama over Mitt Romney, voters in the United States had voted for “an America of openness and solidarity, fully engaged on the international scene and conscious of the challenges facing our planet: peace, economy and the environment”. He listed economic growth, unemployment, and the Middle East as challenges the two politicians would have to face. German leader Angela Merkel stated she “deeply appreciated” meetings and conversations with Obama on issues including “overcoming the global financial and economic crisis”.

Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council, and Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, issued a joint statement which described the U.S. as “a key strategic partner of the European Union” and hoped to meet Obama “at an early date in order to reconfirm our priorities and provide renewed impetus to our joint action”.

Across Africa, Obama received congratulations from South African President Jacob Zuma, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, and Raila Odinga, the Prime Minister of Kenya.

A recently created Danish clothing company is selling on the internet T-shirts in order to support the clandestine radio station of the Colombian guerrilla group Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the graphical workshop of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). In fact the money will be used by these groups to carry on their terrorist activities. FARC activities include kidnappings, masacres, bombs, extortions and the drug trade.

Fighters and Lovers is selling the T-shirts at 170 DKK (US$27.6), from which 35 DKK (US$5.7) are to be destinated to support both armed groups.

Anna Duever, Fighters and Lovers PR chief, said to Spanish news agency EFE that their objective is to “defend freedom and social justice, which is FARC and PFLP are fighting for”. Duever believes the fact the FARC has been included by the EU in its terrorist group list is a “political game”. “We pay our taxes in Denmark, and that money is used for financing the troops our government has sent to Iraq. That’s terrorism. Besides, in Colombia there’s a regime oppressing population and torturing and killing its people”, she said.

Colombian Foreign Affairs Minister, Carolina Barco, said to local media that “financing terrorist groups is unacceptable and goes against all the international norms. Yesterday [Tuesday 19] our ambassador contacted the Danish government, we sent a protest note and have demanded an explanation.”

A year ago, a Danish NGO named Oprør (“Rebelion”) stated it had donated money to the Colombian guerrilla. A new antiterrorism law in Denmark may punish it.

Facebook hired a public relations firm to systematically discredit Google by paying two journalists to plant negative pieces in U.S. newspapers, leaked correspondence discloses. The new revelations are likely to increase tension between the two companies, which are already fierce rivals.

The social network has confirmed the validity of the leaked emails, seen by Wikinews, which suggest executives at the social networking giant hired Burson-Marsteller, a high profile PR and communications firm, to discredit Social Circle, a rival website run by Google. Burson-Marsteller then recruited two journalists — Jim Goldman and John Mercurio — to push editors at The Washington Post and USA Today to publish editorials criticising Social Circle over its privacy settings. The story was exposed after Burson-Marsteller approached a blogger to publish the propaganda, but the blogger posted the correspondence online.

Burson-Marsteller has been forced to apologize for taking on Facebook as a client, admitting the orders to discredit Google violated company policy. “The assignment on those terms should have been declined,” a spokesperson said. The revelations are likely to be incredibly damaging for the firm, who have represented a number of controversial clients in the past. Facebook, however, said the allegations against Google were valid, insisting there were genuine privacy concerns with Social Circle. Google has declined to comment on the issue.

The internet is a big portal where people come to look for information. If you have no information, viewers will leave your site for a better one. When optimizing your site, remember that your website is not the only fish in the lake. There are sharks in there and promoting your site through article marketing is not a bad idea.

So, should you provide content or just dump tons of keywords out there? The answer is ‘yes’ and ‘no’. You should provide great content that uses your keywords efficiently. Keywords are another aspect of promoting your site and it leads the reader to your content.

Once again, if your website is selling tomatoes, you will want to tell the potential buyer about tomatoes and keep him/her interested. You will also want to tell the search engines to direct any tomato seeker to your site by using this ‘tomato’ keyword more than a couple of times, including your Meta keywords and description; if possible, also as the title of your article.

One of the ways you can combine marketing and customer service is through opt-in marketing. Well written articles full of content and useful information will help in building your list as more subscribers will be attracted by your list. There have been the need for the importance of well written, information enriched and keyword packed articles for the content of their site as well as for newsletters. These articles provide the information many are seeking in the internet. If your site has them, more people will be going to your site for information and research.

Not only does article marketing increase your page rank, using links (relevantly) through your article will also increase your link popularity. If you are an affiliate of other websites, this will be the great time to include useful money making links into your article. Although be sure to review the author guidelines prior to submitting to an article directory, as some do not allow the use of affiliate links.

Article marketing can also serve as a basis for your PPC/CPM ads. Certain ads use certain keywords, and articles contain words that can draw traffic and revenue to your site: utilize it. Article marketing extends beyond just writing the articles, you also want people to read these articles and develop an interest in your product.

Now that you have created/bought articles that relate to your website, are keyword optimized, and are informational, you can place it on your site and then submit it to several of the top article directories. Placing relevant content with your links on other relative website are great article marketing techniques that can earn you paging views. The best way to approach another web site owner is to ask if they would be interested in an article swap, this way both sites will benefit from the one way back link.

Remember that your articles should be authentic and original. Do not collect articles from free article directories, as those articles have been used over and over again and will damage the link popularity of your website. Instead, write articles yourself, exchange articles, hire a hand, or buy original articles.

The death of Michael Jackson on Thursday has caused retail demand for his songs and for memorabilia to increase.

Yesterday, the top nine selling items at Apple’s iTunes Store were albums by Jackson, with first and second being a “hits” album and the 1982 album Thriller. similarly reported selling more Jackson merchandise in the 24 hours following his death than it had sold in the preceding 11 years, and that sales of Jackson CDs accounted for 60% of its total business on Thursday. Yesterday morning the top seller in the album chart for Amazon’s U.K. division was Off the Wall, followed by Bad and Thriller in second and third places, respectively.

Many stores, including Graywhale CD Exchange in Salt Lake City, several record stores in Danville, Virginia, and many retailers in New Zealand, have all reported selling out of Jackson’s CDs and DVDs. The flagship store of Tower Records Japan, in Shinjuku, sold out of several of Jackson’s DVDs and ran low on several other items including CDs. The Danville Register Bee recommended to its readers that if they had record players they should investigate antique and charity shops, after one antique shop reported discovering three Jackson Five vinyl albums in its basement.

The effect of the increase in sales had an effect on stock prices. Midday yesterday, Apple shares rose around 2%, Amazon shares rose around 1.3%, and eBay shares rose by 0.64%. Stock market analysts predict that this will be a short-term effect, however. Scott Fullman, an investment strategist at WJB Capital Group in New York, stated “This is going to be one of these events that will have an immediate impact and then wane out in a week or two.”.

In Las Vegas, 21 items of Jackson memorabilia, including handwritten lyrics for Jackson’s song “Bad” and the shirt that Jackson wore on his Victory Tour in 1984, sold at auction yesterday at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino for a total of USD$205,000, with the shirt, at USD$52,500 the most expensive individual item.

eBay has reported an increase in individuals auctioning Jackson memorabilia. These range from records to a Fedora hat signed by Jackson.

Also for sale on eBay and elsewhere are tickets to the This Is It concerts, at the O2 arena, where Jackson had been scheduled to perform. Ticket sellers such as Ticketmaster, Seatwave, and AEG Live have announced that they will be refunding concert tickets. But under standard contract law such refunds only apply to the original purchasor of the ticket, who dealt with the ticket companies directly. Anyone buying a ticket on eBay only has recourse against the seller on eBay that they bought from, and even then only if it was explicitly stated in the terms and conditions of the particular eBay sale that a refund was available.

At the 2009 Glastonbury Festival, stalls have been selling commemorative T-shirts to Festival attendees, with various different slogans including “Michael Jackson R.I.P 1958–2009” and “I was at Glasto 09 when Jacko died”. T-shirt vendors also appeared outside of the UCLA Medical Center where paramedics took Jackson, proferring for USD$10 T-shirts with the slogan “in loving memory of Michael Jackson” and a silhouette of Jackson, although they had few takers.

In Union Square in New York, one street artist was selling hand-made buttons that have pictures of Jackson’s album covers on them. In Times Square, another T-shirt vendor was selling T-shirts printed with copies of the front page of USA Today that reported Jackson’s death.

One observer, Allison Southwick (a Better Business Bureau spokeswoman), commented “I’m honestly expecting to see a Web site pop up by the end of the day selling Michael Jackson commemorative plates.” Whilst such commemorative plates have yet to appear, collectors have been offering commemorative stamps of Jackson for sale on eBay and elsewhere. Several commemorative stamps of Jackson already exist. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines issued $5, $2, $1, and 60¢ Michael Jackson stamps in 1985, as part of its Leaders Of The World series. Tanzania issued a 350s stamp, part of a Famous Black Entertainers set, in 1990. Guinea issued a 500f stamp in 1991. St Vincent issued another $2 Jackson stamp in 1991, as part of Famous Entertainers series. And Grenada issued a 60¢ Jackson stamp, part of its Gold Record Winners series in 1992.

Gore Vidal once remarked of the death of rival Truman Capote that it was a “good career move”. The death of an artist does serve to increase the popularity of their works. People have speculated whether this will be a temporary or a permanent thing for Jackson.

Jim Lentz, who is the Chief Operating Officer of American Royal Arts (a memorabilia dealership in Boca Raton), asked “Is he Elvis or Marilyn Monroe, or is he Mike Tyson?”.

Elvis Presley died at 42, officially of heart failure. Stores sold out of his records and souveniers within hours of the news of his death. In the 20 years following his death, RCA Records sold approximately 400 million of his recordings.

In the days and weeks immediately following Presley’s death, RCA had to sub-contract pressing to other companies, as it was unable by itself to keep up with demand. Sony Corporation announced yesterday that it had received “unprecedented” levels of orders for CDs of Jackson’s music, and was considering boosting production. It had received 150,000 orders for CDs at its music unit in Tokyo. “The amount is unprecedented for one day and we think we need to consider increasing the production of CDs that we plan to sell from July.” said a spokesman for the company. Amazon has been informing customers buying Jackson CDs that they might have to wait between 1 and 3 weeks for their orders to be shipped.

Indeed, planning for a wedding can cost a thousand of dollars for you. While you seem to be traumatized because there are lots of wedding details you will need purchase, most likely you would want to look for beautiful wedding favors that you wish you can have it for free. Souvenirs are one perhaps one of the large expenditures you will have. These small extras alone can cost a fortune, especially for those who have tight budget. Not all couples can afford to have an extravagant wedding dream wedding. Some couples thought of economical ways on how to lessen their expenditures for their wedding; some bride would rather made their own veil, wedding garter, or took advantage of their something to borrow wedding custom.

Although you are on a tight budget, of course, you don’t want to comprise the overall feature of your wedding day. Some couples opt to settle with traditional and cheap wedding favors for an obvious reason – affordable. However, these items do not necessarily memorialize the special event, which should not be the case as the old saying goes ”wedding comes once in a lifetime”. Most often, traditional wedding souvenirs are not as worth-to-keep as others which are usually get stored and left forgotten in cabinets.

Instead of giving out traditional favors, hand each of your guests a memorabilia that can commemorate not only your special day, but also your personal taste. And besides, there are lots of wedding souvenir options today that are available in both online and local stores. If you budget won’t still permit you, of course, you can always make your own souvenirs. Different kinds of do-it-yourself wedding souvenirs are available in many craft stores. This is the perfect time to show how creative and imaginative you are.

Consider edible favors as your affordable souvenir option. Edible treats like chocolates, candies, mints, cookies, pies, and even jams are delightful wedding favors that are very much welcomed by any guest. You can either buy these delightful treats or might as well made it at home. Often, tiny edibles like chocolates, candies, mints and cookies were placed in beautiful favor boxes. They were then finished with ribbons and ”thank you” tags.

Another affordable option are bubble favors. You can always find many bubble containers in craft stores which usually come in colorless. By simply adding some flair and print some special labels, you can definitely create bubble souvenirs that worth to be treasured.

Other affordable ideas include tea and coffee favors, soap favors, candle favors, personalized pens and many more. Tea packs are becoming popular in today’s weddings, as well as coffee packs. Also, you may consider making your own soap or candle favors at home. However, you should begin making those as early as possible. In case you don’t have enough time to make your own do-it-yourself wedding souvenirs, you could always purchase them at stores. Consider bulk-buying online. You will not only have wide assortment to choose from, but you can also save a lot than shopping at local retail stores.
