E-MARKETING E-MAIL INTRO.: Electronic mail, commonly called email or e-mail, is a method of exchanging digital messages from an author to one or more recipients. Modern email operates across the internet or other computer networks. Some early email systems required that the author and the recipient both be online at the same time, in common with instant messaging. Todays email systems are based on a store- and-forward model. Email servers accept, forward, deliver and store messages. Neither the users nor their computers are required to be online simultaneously; they need connect only briefly, typically to an email server, for as long as it takes to send or receive messages.
Almost instantaneous Email messages are transferred instantly - well almost. They move as fast as current in copper wires or light in optical cables, which is pretty darn quick. When you send an email is leaves your computer and arrives at the recipients inbox immediately. You can potentially have a conversation with a person over email - hence, the conversation view in Gmail. Cost of sending an email is zero or negligible If you have a 24 hour internet such as a through cable / broadband connection, the cost of sending an email is zero or very very small. For dialup users, the maximum cost of sending an email will be that of a phone call or a few (depending on the size of the message and the files attached). Emails can be sent in bulk One email message can be sent to multiple recipients almost at the cost of a single email. When compared to conventional postal service this is indeed a huge saving. Email attachments - any digital document can be sent over email As long as a document can be converted into digital format, it can be sent over email. Again, the cost aspect comes into picture. Imagine the money you will save by sending a 500 page document attached to an email instead of the same as hard copy printout - not only is the postage more expensive but there is also the cost of printing and paper to consider. And the story doesnt end with text documents. Photographs, music and audio files and even video from a camcorder can be attached along with an email message. To learn more, refer how to send photographs taken from your digital camera through email. Though many email services put a limit to the email attachment size, there are workarounds; refer sending larges files over email.
Delivery is almost guaranteed The delivery of email messages in almost guaranteed. Why do I say "almost"? Because sometimes for reasons that are beyond the scope of this article, email can get lost in cyberspace but this is very rare. Request return receipt Just like with postal and courier services, you can request a return receipt which simply involves a click of a mouse button by the recipient. But even if the recipient doesnt get back, you know your email has been delivered - refer point above. Email is accessible OK, this is one of the greatest advantages of using email - its accessible anywhere, anytime and through a multitude of devices - computers, laptops, palmtops and even cell phones. One can check email from any location as long as an active internet connection is available. Also email can be sent from any place with the same requirement of an active net connection. Built in spell checking Most E-mail accounts (E-mail clients) have built in spell check dictionaries - so you have no excuse of sending badly written messages. Spell checkers are also found in online email services such as Hotmail and Yahoo. Notification of new arrivals Email programs or devices can also be set up so you get a notification through sound or a flash of light when new messages arrive at your inbox.
Can be formal as well as informal Email messages do not signify informality. Just because email is easy to compose and send does not mean it cannot be used in formal and official correspondences. Automation Several, if not all, steps in the emailing process can be automated. A good example is sending birthday greetings to people. An email program checks the birthday and the name of the recipient from a list. A message (from a template) is then formulated and sent on the specified date. Email storage and management Storing and managing emails you receive is very easy if you use an email program or a good email service. Segregating messages into folders and organizing them properly is just like cleaning your desk and filing your work. However, with email there is no usage of physical space excepting that on your hard disk, of course. Also, any email client worth its salt has an inbuilt search utility that hunts out the elusive email in a jiffy. Email security The best way to secure your email messages is to use the PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) technology. However, most people are unaware of it but its very much there! These were some advantages I could think of. If you come up with others, write to me using the form below. Its now time to look at some disadvantages of using email.
Disadvantages of email Email creates more work In contrast to the popular notion, email actually creates more work. The easy of sending and receiving email has transformed businesses throughout the world and we know that the stress levels are increase, right? People expect immediate replies Most people know that emails are delivered instantaneously and hence expect replies immediately. I agree that the "human" element is kind of lost with email. Most email messages are not secure As I mentioned above, though a good secure technology exists for email, the masses seldom bother to use it... or even know about it. Hence transferring sensitive information over email such as credit card numbers or bank details (password?) is not advisable.
Higher Corporate AccountsINFLATION In economics, inflation is a rise in the general level of prices of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services. Consequently, inflation also reflects an erosion in the purchasing power of money a loss of real value in the internal medium of exchange and unit of account in the economy.
Types of Inflation There are three major types of inflation : 1) Demand Pull Inflation 2) Cost Push inflation 3) Built in Inflation
Demand Pull Inflation Demand Pull Inflation caused by increase in aggregate demand due to increased private and government spending. It occurs when aggregate demand exceeds aggregate supply which increases costs suddenly. To increase the output firms employ more people. When firms employ more and more people they end up in increasing cost of production of the good as compared to the output .This results in increase in price of the good and hence Inflation.
COST PUSH INFLATION Cost supply inflation is also termed ‘supply shock inflation’. Caused by drops in aggregate supply due to increased prices of inputs. For example sudden decrease in the supply of oil would increase oil prices. Producers for whom oil is a part of their costs could then pass this on to consumers in the form of increased prices. If the good whose price increases is used widely in production the effect is much more and causes inflation.
Built in Inflation• These types of Inflation are induced by adaptive expectations i.e. the workers try to keep their wage levels high in anticipation of inflation. The employers and firms increase the prices of their goods in anticipation of the workers demands. This forms a vicious circle and results in increase in general level of prices. This results in Inflation.

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT.INVESTMENT RISK MEANING : Valuation of assets based on liquidity does not yield better results if the fair market value of assets is in excess of value of its assets on a liquidated basis. Valuation approach is the general way which is followed to determine a value indication of a business, corporate ownership interest, security, or intangible asset. Business Valuation is an estimation of the market value of a corporation / business. It differs from appraisal in the sense that appraisals only takes into consideration the tangible assets, but a valuation considers intangible assets
INVESTMENT RISK CLASSIFICATION(BASIS OF NATURE) Very Cautious You are not willing to accept any risk to your investment in the short terms and wish typically to invest wholly in cash assets. You understand that the potential for growth is small and that over the long-term inflation will reduce the buying power of cash assets. Cautious You are looking for an investment where the return over the long term is expected to be an improvement on that available from high street deposit accounts. Or alternatively, offer you a guarantee of your capital from day one. Balanced You are looking for a stabilized risk and reward with the aim that, in the long term, higher returns may result than those available from more cautious investments. You are willing to accept that the value of your investment can fall as well as rise in value.
Adventurous You are willing to accept a higher level of risk on your investment in order to seek higher growth potential, in the longer term, than is available on less speculative investments. You are prepared to accept that this will increase the risk of large fluctuations in the value of your investment and of losing some or possibly all of your capital. Aggressive You are willing to accept a very high level of risk on your investment in order to seek very high growth potential in the long term. You are willing to accept the risk of losing some or all of your capital.
Investment risk types at presentsituation. Investment Risk #1: Business Risk Business risk is, perhaps, the most familiar and easily understood. It is the potential for loss of value through competition, mismanagement, and financial insolvency. There are a number of industries that are predisposed to higher levels of business risk (think airlines, railroads, steel, etc).
• Investment Risk #2: Valuation Risk• Recently, I found a company I absolutely love (said company will remain nameless). The margins are excellent, growth is stellar, there is little or no debt on the balance sheet and the brand is expanding into a number of new markets. However, the business is trading at a price that is so far in excess of its current and average earnings, I cannot possibly justify purchasing the stock.• Investment Risk #3: Force of Sale Risk• By putting yourself in this position, you have bet on when your stock is going to appreciate. This is a financially fatal mistake. In the stock market, you can be relatively certain of what will happen, but not when. You have turned your basic advantage (the luxury of holding permanently and ignoring market quotations), into a disadvantage.
