Modified Ocean Dancer Template

The Ocean Dancer Template by Tukang is one of the Top Rated Blogger templates at eblog templates. Personally I am curious why it is not among the Most Downloaded templates. But I would never wonder why it is top rated. With a couple of customizations, we can now use the modified Ocean Dancer Template for our tourism promotion blog.

Banners sized 468px X 60px can easily be placed above the posts. The 450px wide one-column and the two-column sidebars easily hold all small to medium-sized ad widgets, while retaining an un-cluttered look and feel. Thumbnails in the sidebar are 140px X 140px graphics and may be placed in the upper one-column sidebar side-by-side three at a time.

My own cutomizations include:

  1. Use of CSS menu in lieu of the original hardcoded one-level HTML unordered list. Credits go to CSS Play for great CSS menu design.
  2. Use of Google AdSense search form
  3. Minor tweaks for compatiblity with IE.
This modified template works perfectly with Firepox, IE, Opera and Safari.

How to Boost Your Traffic and Profits with Content!

Are you aware of how vitally important and valuable CONTENT is to your online business? In fact, content can do more to build your business and profits than just about any other resource or service available.

Following is a list of 5 key ways that content can help build your traffic, subscribers, and customers starting today!...

1. Boost your search engine ranking and daily visitor count by posting keyword rich articles and content on your web-site. For example, if your business involves offering products and services related to fitness, posting fitness related articles and content will attract unlimited prospective customers on a regular basis!

2. Generate double or even triple the number of newsletter subscribers you do currently, simply by offering content in the form of "special reports" or manuals as bonuses for subscribing to your publication. People love freebies, so give them what they want and watch as your results increase!

3. Create an automated cashflow by using content to formulate multi-part email training courses with related web-site or affiliate links "sprinkled" throughout each course. Use an autoresponder service to automate the delivery of your training course (such as a 5 part training course delivered over a 5 day period).

Training courses can also serve as excellent bonus offers for your prospective newsletter subscribers.

4. One of the most important keys to a successful online business is not JUST having a mailing list or newsletter subscribers... It's about building a trusting relationship with your subscribers (ie, "cultivating" your list)...

By sending informative articles (content) to your list on a regular basis you will establish yourself as an expert on your topic of business, as well as gain the trust of your subscribers over time. As a result, your subscribers will be EAGER to take advantage of your "paid" product and service offers. (Just make sure that you NEVER take advantage of the relationship you develop with your list by offering products or services of poor quality just to make a quick buck!)

If there is one "constant" in Internet marketing, it's this: A cultivated list of subscribers is as good as money in the bank. Write that down and never forget it!

5. Another excellent way to generate no cost traffic is by submitting ready-made articles to "content hungry" web-site and newsletter publishers with your "resource box" attached. A resource box is nothing more than a little 3-6 line "bio" about you and/or your web-site - including a link to your site (or even instructions on how to subscribe to your newsletter)...

When submitting or offering your article(s) for reprint purposes, just make sure to specify that each article is to be reprinted "as is" with your resource box attached.

...Even one article can go a LONG way towards generating no cost traffic and visitors for you. Just imagine your article being sent out to a newsletter subscriber base of 100,000 individuals - many of whom will be reading YOUR included resource box and clicking on your URL to learn more about what you have to offer!

Well there you have it, 5 sure ways to build your online business exponentially with the help of articles and content...

With the declining effectiveness of many of the online advertising methods that we've relied on in past years, content is only strengthening its position as the ultimate KEY to generating unlimited traffic, subscribers, and customers!

School System Software by AVGTECH

This software has been revised three time since 1998, the year when it was one of the top 10 awardees in DOST's National Search for Product Excellence in Information Technology. First revision came in 2002 when the original MS Access front-end (backened database has always been SQL Server) was converted to Visual Studio interface and ran in .Net Famework 1.1. It was again revised in 2005 to leverage advances offered by .Net Framework 2.0. In the current version, continuous upgrade is done in Visual Studio 2008 with SQL Server 2005 as backend database and it targets .Net Framework 3.5. While presently the School System is mainly a desktop application running oer with LAN and WAN, its Web-based version is definitely next in line. Full coverage is described here.

The video below shows the common interface of the School System software.
