Dent Repair - The Secrets

Dent Repair – The Secrets

Does your new car have a dent in the door? Has hailed damaged the Roof or Boot? If so, dent repair is probably your best option. In the past few years, paintless dent repair has offered an alternative to the traditional dent fix. Paintless dent repair does not damage the paint on your vehicle and it is much cheaper than the usual methods of dent removal.

The secret behind dent repair is that there is not "beating out" of the dents, nor removing parts of your car. This is one of the reasons it's much cheaper than some of the older methods for dent repair. A normal dent repair will cost only a fraction of a traditional repair that is completed within a repair shop.

Paintless dent repair is a very skilled procedure. In order to achieve the best results, the process requires experience, patience, and the right tools. Since there is no painting involved, the job is completed much faster and can be done as a mobile business. This means the dent repair professional can come to the customer.

The process requires the repair specialist to gradually push the metal back to where it's supposed to be. This is done a small section at a time and depending upon the size of the dent, may require a few hours to complete. There are several tools that are needed to complete the job properly.

The tools are long, flat, and very rigid in order to allow the correct amount of pressure to be applied, without the tool bending. These tools are slid into the gap found behind the panel. Pressure is applied to the dent from behind, but it's done slowly to move the metal back into its original shape, a little bit at a time. If done correctly, there should be no damage to the paint on the other side of the panel.

Many companies are providing mobile services for dent repair. The secret to a great dent removal job is to provide the specialist with enough room to work. This will help the repair specialist to provide the amount of pressure needed to correctly push the metal back into place.

You'll now find many paintless dent repair tools are sold to the public. However, without the proper training, you can easily cause a ripple in the metal or the paint to crack or chip. This will require a much more expensive repair bill and even a repair shop may not be able to completely remove the dent. It's best to leave it to the professionals.

Paintless dent removal is recommended as an alternative to the more conventional methods. However, you need to be certain you have a trained, qualified professional to achieve the best results. There are many companies that do not provide enough training to their employees and the results can be rather costly.

For those people that have two or three dents, it's often much easier on the wallet to have them all fixed at once. Understand that not all dents may be removed by paintless dent repair. The location of the dent is the determining factor, as well as if there is a crease in the metal. Paintless dent removal can work on some creases, but it depends on how deep it is, as well as how long it is. Consult with a professional dent removal specialist to find out how they can help you.

Invest In Comics! My Top Copper Age Comics To Invest In!

Invest In Comics! My Top Copper Age Comics To Invest In!

So you want to invest in comics, do you? In many of my previous articles, I’ve stressed quite a lot about silver age comic investing, with a slight emphasis on bronze age comics to invest in. I’ve also stated quite profoundly on modern age comic books as being unwise investment comics to pursue.

Whether you consider copper age comic books as part of the modern age or not, there are some, although very few, wise key issues to invest in. These are a tad more affordable than bronze or silver age books, but they are well worth owning to bring more value to your collection.

There are quite a few copies floating around at high grades, especially in the 9.8 area. Unlike many high demand silver age books, in which mid to low grades are still investment worthy, these copper age selections on my list are best to invest in at high grades. I’m advising no lower than low NM or 9.2 according to CGC universal standards.

So, without further a due, here are just a few of my top copper age comics to invest in:

  1. G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #21 (1st Storm Shadow/Silent issue).
  2. G.I Joe A Real American Hero #26 & 27 ( Snake Eyes origin, 2 part story).
  3. G.I. Joe A Real American Hero #150 through #155 (Low Print run. Issue 155 is last issue).
  4. Amazing Spider-Man #299 (1st brief appearance of Venom. Todd McFarlane art.)
  5. Amazing Spider-Man #300 (1st full appearance of Venom. Todd McFarlane art.)
  6. Marvel, The Transformers, 1984 #1 (1st Transformers comic based off Hasbro Toys.)
  7. New Mutants Vol 1 #98 (1st appearance of Deadpool).
  8. Uncanny X-Men #221 (1st appearance of Cable as baby Nathan.)
  9. Uncanny X-Men #244 (1st appearance of Jubilee.)
  10. Uncanny X-Men #248 (1st Jim Lee artwork on X-Men.)

Of course there are more from the copper age that are well-worth investing in. These are just my first-round picks, as you could say. The great thing about many of these issues is that they are still well under a hundred dollars for many copies that are over 9.4 NM (near mint).

All the issues here are in demand, and ones like the last five issues of G.I. Joe A Real American Hero by Marvel Comics have low print runs. That means that they’re pretty scarce and some hunting for those issues at a high grade may be needed. Be sure to see the links below for even more fantastic invest in comics advice and picks from all comic book ages.

Netflix Landing Page Design

The Anatomy of a Perfect Landing Page for Your Business

This is a guest article contributed by Matt Janaway.

Having a landing page exit-rate that stinks can be quite depressing. This is especially true if you and your team spent blood sweat and tears to create a professional-looking landing page, only to see your audience ignore your call-to-action buttons.

The thing is, there is more to a high-converting landing page than just its looks. Relying on your page’s aesthetics alone isn’t going to cut it since it can only do so much for you.

If you want to create a landing page that’s going to bring home the bacon, then allow me to share with you the anatomy of a perfect landing page for your business.

Let’s hop right in.

1. Compelling copy.

Just because your copy reads well and it doesn’t have any typos or grammar mistakes, doesn’t mean that it is enough to compel your audience to take action on your CTA’s.

Compelling copies have psychological elements embedded into them like social validation, tapping into the audiences’ fear of loss, etc.

These elements are often what compels the audience to take action.

2. Sprinkle your call-to-action buttons in strategic places.

Where these strategic areas are specifically, I’m afraid I won’t be able to tell you. Simply because these things vary depending on the dynamics of the type of landing page that you’re using (yes, there are different types of landing pages), and your design among other things.

However, I can tell you that as a general rule, it is a good practice to add your CTAs in areas where you’ve provided massive value to your readers like the image above, taken from Netflix. That way, if they are convinced that they need your help, then they can contact you immediately without having to look for your CTA buttons.

Adding a floating CTA also works. A good example is Furl.co.uk’s “Talk to Us” button. A quick visit to their website and you will see that no matter where you’ve scrolled at the page, their “Talk to Us” button is still highly visible because it is floating.

3. The relevance of the page is apparent.

Those who arrive on landing pages often have a goal in mind. That is why you need to convey to your readers immediately that your page is relevant to what they’re looking for, otherwise, they might think that they’re in the wrong place which will then cause them to click away.

A perfect way to deal with this is to make sure that your title directly addresses their concerns. Since your title is one of the first things they’ll see immediately after arriving at your page, the issue of relevance no longer becomes a threat.

4. No distractions.

Busy Web Design

It is ideal to use one type of call-to-action per landing page. That way, your audience doesn’t end up getting confused or distracted from doing the primary goal that you predetermined when you created your landing page.

That being said, do not ask your audience to share, buy, or contact you all at the same time and be careful not to distract your visitors from your main goal. Here’s an example of a homepage which distracts the visitor from completing a goal (in this instance, a purchase).

Just pick one type of CTA then sprinkle it strategically across the page. Also, make sure that your CTA buttons “pop.” If they aren’t highly visible, then your audience might not see them.

5. Carefully crafted headlines.

Your headline needs to be clear, concise, relevant, and punchy. These characteristics will ensure (somewhat) that your audience will continue reading the copy on your landing page.

See here for some tools for optimizing headlines and the ultimate list of headlines.

6. Add testimonials.

Malibu Web

Adding testimonials on your landing page will skyrocket its credibility. What makes it so effective is the fact that testimonials are not sales pitches, and they come across as unbiased.

To make the testimonials on your landing page look more credible, add your client’s profile picture and a short information about who they are.

At Marketing Labs, we include our clients’ name, their position in the company, and their business names. This is how our testimonials section looks.

When your prospect customers see the testimonies shared by your previous customers about how positive their experience is with you, it becomes a lot easier for them to trust you and do business with you.

7. Use images or videos that are relevant to the copy.

Countless case studies are showing that images and videos can boost your conversion rates. The thing with images and videos is they can help your audience create a clearer mental picture of the ideas that you want to convey.

Of course, the ideas that we’re talking about here are meant to influence them to take action on your offers. This effort from Spotify is excellent and encapsulates the impression of peacefulness.

Music Landing Page

When your audience can create a mental picture of themselves experiencing happiness, convenience, and joy (among other things) because of your product, it becomes almost impossible for them to leave your landing page without taking action on your offers.

Why Do Some Guys Want to Commit So Fast? Learn the Reasons Why So...

Why Do Some Guys Want to Commit So Fast? Learn the Reasons Why So…

It has kind of become like a norm that most men either hate to get into commitments or take a long time in doing so. So, it does come as a surprise to women when their man is overly eager to get committed. Below might be some reasons for that.

Reasons from the past
Maybe he has been in a relationship where he loved his woman and was absolutely committed to her and spent plenty of time and effort only to be dumped by her. So maybe his past insecurities are making him rush if he feels that you are the right one for him.

He is head over heels in love with you
Everyone has heard of the love at first sight syndrome. It is possible that something like this has happened to him regarding you. He has eyes only for you and you have become his centre of universe. So, obviously he sees no reason for any delay of any sort.

He may have territorial instincts
Now every woman has their set of admirers. If he is in some way interested in you, then his natural instincts would tell him to put a fence around you in an effort to keep the other guys at bay while he take his time to sort out his own feelings about you. In his mind he just wants the security that you do not fall for someone else in case he wants you for himself.

He is completely sure of his feelings
It is human nature for the mind and heart to be in conflict most times. But it can be that he in his whole being is very sure that you are the one and only for him. He will then find no reason for waiting.

His mind has made him insecure about you
Now he might very much be in love with you and if at all he has seen something in your behaviour or mannerisms that tell him that you might be losing interest in him, he will just push the panic button and offer his commitment sooner than you think due to fear of losing you.

Maybe he has been there forever on the scene
It might be possible that he has gone around and dated a lot of women in the past only to have been disappointed by every one of them in some way or the other. And so if he likes you, he feels the need to be quick for commitment before his mind undergoes a change too.

That need to feel settled
Bachelor days are not going to be around forever. Every man at some point of time in life wants to settle down. And if he feels that you are that special one for him, surely he is not going to hang around for long.

Terrific Tips for Directing Traffic to Your Site

Have you ever run out of ideas about how to generate huge traffic to your site? This article highlights great tips for the purpose. So why don’t you read on?

  1. Blogging

Yes, blogging is a good idea to promote traffic to your site. While you provide content in your niche on your blog, from time to time you can refer something reasonable to your site and provide that link to your site in your blog(s). Soon readers will direct themselves to your site and you will have considerable traffic.

  1. Write a free eBook in your niche
  • Sending the free eBook to your subscribers in a newsletter.

You certainly have an email list, however, small or big. Send a valuable yet interesting up-to-date free eBook written in your niche to your subscribers. The end of the eBook should contain helpful links with content referring to your site, which helps to gain great traffic to your site.

    Participating in Huge Giveaway Events

Giveaway Events are joint ventures (JV’s) on a large scale. You become a contributor to the JV event by providing your free product as a gift. Lots of contributors contribute their free gifts to the event. Their subscribers will have an eye for your product if it is well groomed and will subscribe. Your new subscribers will not only have the benefit of enjoying your free gift but will also visit the links leading to your site that you provide inside your gift.

  1. Article Magic

Write relevant articles in your niche but do NOT provide any promotional content of your products or sites within the body of the article. Write on a suitable and valuable topic that is of good quality and is interesting to read as well. These articles do allow you to give promotional content within resource boxes of your article format. In here, provide short statements directing to links with helpful content (related to the article content) in your niche on your site(s).

  1. Press Releases

Press Releases allow you to promote your published product, a book or eBook in most cases. So have a good quality book/eBook written down in your niche and get it published, providing all the information in the press release regarding publisher of your book/eBook, publish date, author, address etc including a short content about what the book/eBook is about and take the reader to visit links for the book/eBook for further information in addition to the little information you already provide in the press release. So you can see, in order for the reader to visit the links of your book/eBook, the press release should be written arousing interest and curiosity in the reader. Like before, while the book/eBook provides quality content in your niche, it should also contain links to valuable information on your site(s), which in turn, will take interested, hungry readers to your site(s), generating the traffic you need.

Summing up, these are some of the great ways to promote your site(s) to the public in your niche.

Drill Hole Example

4 Simple Ways to Upgrade Your Website for Brilliance

Last year I engaged in a campaign with Liquid Web Hosting on How to Build Something Brilliant and a few months later I’m here to offer some advice on how to “Keep Building Brilliant” by upgrading different aspects of your website.

Disclaimer: This post was written by me through an activation with HireInfluence on behalf of Liquid Web. Although I received compensation for participating in the campaign, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Follow along with the hashtag #KeepBuildingBrilliant.

1. Improve the Visual Design / User Experience

a) Simplify based on Goals

What is the purpose of your website? Is it to provide information, sell a product or service or simply to grow your email list? Asking yourself these questions will allow you to simplify your website, based on your goals. For example, if your main goal is to get an email address, then your website’s design should be focused around this goal and one way of achieving this, is by reducing clutter and having a clear focus. See here for the top 5 design mistakes killing your conversions.

b) Reduce clutter

Can pages or sections of your site be removed or reduced? Can more white space be added to guide the user and improve the user experience? What aspects are distracting from your main goals? See here for some tips, case studies and best practices for doing just that.

c) Sell benefits, not features

Tell a story, rather than hard sell your customers. What benefits will they derive from your product or service?

An old ad age is the drill and hole example… User’s aren’t looking for a drill, they are looking for a hole so sell them on the end product of “drilling perfect holes with ease”, rather than on the drill itself.

2. Build a following

Why would user’s want to follow you or your business? What value are you offering them? Always keep this in mind when building your list or followers.

a) Build your email list

Email marketing is one of the best ways for your audience to stay engaged and connected, but how much attention are you paying to building your list? Add some lead generators to your site. I personally use the service ‘OptinMonster’ for gaining emails and offer a free logo design eBook ‘lead magnet’ to entice users to sign up.

b) Remove or reduce advertising

How much money are you actually making from those Google ads? Generally, they’re just adding unnecessary clutter. Consider removing them and focus on your goals of gaining important leads, not just a few bucks.  

3. Increase site speed

Increase Site Speed

The speed of your site is going to directly affect not only the experience of the user, but also your search engine rankings, so pay special attention to your website’s speed.

a) Upgrade your Web site platform

What platform are you using for your Web site and is it best suited for your business’s goals? Maybe it’s time to ditch that slow DIY website and upgrade to something more professional. A popular choice would be WordPress, and there are literally thousands of professional themes to choose from. See how to start a website or blog here.

b) Make more mobile friendly

Your website should be responsive by now… if not, then crawl out from under that rock. But don’t just stop at being responsive, consider what elements can be removed or reduced entirely to ensure fast loading speeds on mobile. See here for some tips on making your mobile site load faster.

c) Use a CDN

Hosting your files on a CDN (content delivery network) is one of the best ways to speed up your site, and can often save up to 60% bandwidth.

CDNs work by hosting your files across a large network of servers around the world. When a user visits your site from New Zealand, they are downloading files from the server that is closest to them. This reduces the load on any single server, making the site faster.

See here for getting started with a CDN.

4. Upgrade Your Web Host

Liquid Web Team

A lot of the above factors are reliant on where your website files are hosted – aka your web host – and when choosing a web host, there are a number of factors you need to consider such as reliability, security, performance guarantees, customer support and more.

Do you need dedicated server hosting, managed VPS hosting, managed WordPress hosting, cloud hosting or just standard server hosting?

There are many hosting options out there, and Liquid Web Hosting is one company to consider if you’re wanting to upgrade your web host. Their vision is to be the “The Most Helpful Humans In Hosting™” so you can rest assured you’ll be in good hands for your upgrade. They have everything you need to grow, as well as managed services (not just a server) and wholly owned data-centers for your peace of mind. And just look at their smiles above…

How to Publish Your First Website or Blog

How to Publish Your First Website or Blog

If you are interested in writing a blog, it’s a great idea to own the brand rather than publishing your valuable content under some third-party’s name. The sooner you do it, the better it is for your content as well as credibility. Owning a brand gives you a sense of freedom and allows you to look after it as it is something meaningful in your life. In this article, we will go through the process of publishing your very first website or blog and giving it a unique name to make it stand out of the pack.

1) Think of a good name: The very first step in getting your content published is to think of a good and unique name. Selecting a name for your business or blog can be tricky. A couple of things that you should keep in mind is that the name either directly or indirectly reflects the nature of your blog and it is somewhat easy to remember. This means that you should always choose small keywords rather than long phrases.

2) Buy Domain name: Once you have a good name in mind, next step is to buy a domain. There are quite a few domain name providers out there. Again, it can be tricky to decide which one to go with. However, I would not recommend spending too much time searching for the right domain name provider, as they all are pretty much the same. Domain names cost between $0.99 to $9.99 per year for the first year and then up to $19.99 the year after and onwards. Make sure you do not spend more than $4.99 per year for the first year of your domain name subscription.

3) Buy Web Hosting: This is the most important step of all. Web hosting service is the home to all the files and folders of your content including text and images. Therefore, it is critical to choose the right web hosting service. Although there are a lot of services out there, but it can be difficult to find the right one. Unlike domain name, web hosting services are not all alike. You need to make sure that the service you going to sign up for serves all your current as well as near-future needs. Few of the most important things to look for in a good web hosting is: control panel, storage space, bandwidth, and quantity of domain names that it supports.

Once you a domain name and a reliable web hosting service, you are good to publish your first blog.
