Independence Day no coffee talk
When is it time to retreat or just start over? Check your policies first. Are the principles of your policies included in your business plan? Where and when did things begin to go wrong? These are just a few of the questions to answer for yourself before moving forward. When a site is hacked beyond repair it is sometimes the best action to a) save your databases b) do a backup of your pictures folder then c) scrub the site from the Cpanel and start all over again. When working in Joomla or WP the majority of your work in included in the databases, not in the files. Saving your databases is a matter of logging into the Cpanel, go to MySQL, choosing the database then click download as MySQL. Rename the public_html to something else, then create a new public_html file. When your new site is working you can then just delete the public html folder that you renamed.
There are a good many things to keep abreast upon including current events. Expect to see changes in how you will run your business online.

Know the purpose of your site, i.e. to inform, to entertain, to educate then stick to your purpose.

Good information Bill. Tweet Jukebox is now in a new beta version. The Jukebox has been helping to automate Twitter and Facebook but is now including LinkedIn. Remember there is a free version of the program which includes 2 Jukeboxes. This could be used for memes and quotes. Bill showed with 2 accounts and about a dozen Jukeboxes how he is using a spread sheet to see visually any overlapping errors. He is using a resource called http://www.appsumo.com where he is getting very good deals on products. The latest is a new webinar software at http://www.appsumo.com/webinarninja/ for $49.00 for lifetime. (this one is normally $47.00 per month. ) And that is for a 100 seat room.
