Example: There are a few times in life when a meal is so expertly crafted and planned that it is nothing short of genius. Last night, I had one of those meals – the Mahi Mahi.
The dish was excellently prepared. Grilled, juicy, and fresh without a hint of fishiness. A glaze of tangerine sauce brought a hint of tart sweetness. The fish was placed on a mound of sweet plantain rice. The combination of the fish and rice alone was to die for!
However, as only expert chefs can achieve, additional garnishes provided even bolder, beautiful tastes. Pickled onions topping the fish made for an even finer taste experience, while green beans hidden under the fish added freshness and completed each bite

Free Advertising for Small Businesses
The Top Ten List
Free Listings for Establishing Your Presence in the Digital World
It is a popular and widely accepted benchmark that small businesses should spend between five to ten percent of their sales revenue in promoting and advertising their business each year. For their advertising dollars, owners aim at a mix of the highest quality leads and the most leads possible. However, with limited budgets, small business owners are also looking for good opportunities to promote their business for free.
Are you an SMB owner or manager looking for free advertising or an inexpensive way to establish your presence on the Internet? The following list contains the top ten companies (in my opinion) that will provide you with a free business listing in the digital space. These listings will appear on the Internet, whether people are searching on PCs, smartphones, or tablets. All for a favorite price – free!
It is easy to get started, and does not take much time to complete. Each site will take about 10 to 20 minutes to upload your data, if you have all of your personal contact information available (including your business email and business phone number).
In addition to this top ten list, there are four important things to know about free listings:
- Accurate Data: If you have a business phone, your business (most likely) already has some sort of data on these sites. You should claim your listing to ensure that your listing (or business profile page) has accurate, up-to-date data.
- Your Reputation: Your free listing or business profile page may contain ratings and reviews of your products or services from your customers. You should monitor the ratings and reviews that appear on these sites so that you can engage with your customers. These ratings and reviews might be visible only on these websites and not available on the search engines, such as Google. Again, not all ratings and reviews are visible through search engines, but your potential customers may see them. These sites provide you, as the business owner, an opportunity to respond to both the positive and negative feedback.
- Consistency: This list of Top Ten sites will help you ensure the consistency of your company s data across the Internet. Data aggregators and search engines may gather, pass and display erroneous information if customers or consumer users provide incorrect data for your business. By claiming your free listings on these Top Ten sites, you ensure that your data is accurate and consistent on other sites and other digital platforms as well.
- Getting More: Some argue that a business listing is not properly defined as an “advertisement,” since it simply contains basic company data. However, at many of these top ten sites, you can add more than just your basic listing for free. For no cost, you can add photos of your business, additional text describing your company, and blog posts. Regardless of whether you call this information a listing or an advertisement, you should get more from these top ten sites by adding as much information as possible about your company.
And finally, search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing have historically aggregated data from these top ten sites, including ratings and reviews. More recently, search engines are allowing SMBs to enter the data directly. Consequently, I recommend that small businesses add their business listing to at least these three top search engines.
I hope that you find this information helpful, and would welcome and appreciate your feedback. In addition, please feel free to use the comments to recommend any additional sites that I may have overlooked.

Shop data storage
All External hard drives
External hard drives are perfect for backing up your important documents, videos and photos, providing extra storage space for all your devices. Choose between lightweight portable drives, high capacity desktop drives and Ethernet connected Network drives so that you can backup and store everything that matters to you.
Portable hard drives
Portable hard drives are small, lightweight and easily portable, so they’re ideal for providing extra storage space for laptops when you’re working on the go. They’re powered via a normal USB port, so they don’t need to be plugged into the mains – great for backing up important documents away from home or the office.
Desktop hard drives
Desktop hard drives are made for backing from desktop PCs or other static devices. They’re powered by the mains so aren’t designed for portability, and are usually used for backing up large files or media at home and are ideal for keeping your creative projects backed up and safe.
Cloud storage is ideal for students and business as you can access all your data from any device. Your important files are encrypted, stored online and can be accessed from any of your online devices, anywhere in the world.
Wireless hard drives
Network attached storage (NAS) drives offer wireless access to your documents, so you can save and access everything from your computer, tablet or smartphone wherever you are – all you need is an internet connection.
Internal hard drives
Internal hard drives are the storage devices inside your laptop or desktop PC. After a while, you can soon find yourself needing to upgrade to something bigger that gives you more space for your ever-expanding library of documents and media. If speed is important, a solid state drive (SSD) gives you seriously fast boot, load and save times for performance-focused computing.
USB flash drives
USB sticks, also known as flash drives, are simple storage devices that are small enough to slip into a pocket or even wallet. They’re ideal for keeping important files with you and sharing them across different devices.
Blank media refers to CDs and DVDs that you can save your files to. They can used as the final backup of important documents, and since they’re so small, can be filed away easily in case of emergency.
Things to consider
When decided on hard drive capacity, it’s important to think about how much you want, or expect to store.
500 GB is enough for backing up a single user’s important documents, while a whole family looking to store films, music and photos will need at least 1 TB. If you’re looking for a storage device to back up project files from creative software, anything over 1 TB is recommended, as these types of files can be huge.
Do you want to take the device with you, or are you happy to leave it in your home or office?
If you need to back up quickly on the go, an external SSD is small enough to fit into any bag or case without worry. External desktop hard drives are larger but can be left connected to a desktop PC to automatically back up files and folders.
How many devices do you want to cover?
Families or small offices all need to backup data. Rather than having a hard drive each, a NAS drive lets everyone wirelessly backup, share and access documents to a single hard drive. Everyone can have their own secure files for complete privacy and security.
Most external hard drives now support USB 3.0. This gives you much faster data transfer speeds for fast saving and loading, which is helps to cut down the waiting time when transferring video, music and project files.
Portable SSDs deliver the fastest data transfer speeds. You can even run software directly from them, making them the perfect choice for expanding the storage capacity of high performance laptops and Windows tablets.
Some devices are designed specifically for Windows PCs or Macs, so check the compatibility of the drive before you decide. Any hard drive can be reformatted to work with almost any computer, but you may miss out on handy features, like automatic backup and smart file management.
Most new PCs come with USB 3.0 ports, but some older ones won’t, so look for a blue USB port on your laptop or desktop to make sure you can get the fastest speeds possible.
Benefits of SSD
SSDs allow a computer to boot up in no time, and let you save and access files much faster than standard hard disk drives. SSDs have no moving parts, so they’re more durable and reliable, with better performance. And because nothing is moving inside the drive, SSDs are virtually silent.
In desktops, SSDs are normally used as secondary drives that can store the operating system, demanding software or your most commonly used programs. This really reduces load times – perfect for high-performance PCs or gaming setups.
