Create an Online Media Room By Joan Stewart
Bart is a handwriting expert and has appeared on more than 1,300TV and radio shows. Is it any wonder? He does a great job lettingthe media know how he can help them. His media room also featurespress releases, including two that are tie-ins to Valentine's Dayand National Handwriting Week in January.
He also gives the media ideas on how they can dovetail stories onnational news events to his areas of expertise. For example, onCNN, Bart analyzed the handwriting in letters sent during theanthrax scare. In other media outlets, he analyzed TimothyMcVeigh's prison letters and showed how McVeigh's handwritingrevealed a callous character.
There's lots more you can learn by visiting Bart's site. Heoffers punchy testimonials from media people who love him. Hesupplies a list of questions for radio and TV interviewers. Andhe gives specific instructions on easy ways for TV and radio showhosts to obtain handwriting samples from their audience membersso Bart can analyze them on the air. What media person wouldn'twant to interview him?
Bart says he used another publicity trick that paid offhandsomely. When he was interviewed by Biography magazine, hesent the magazine photos of what he looked like as a child. Ifmagazines print childhood photos of celebrities, he reasoned, andthey print his, he too will be viewed as a celebrity. Sureenough, the magazine did. And he got more space that he wouldhave gotten had he not sent the photos.
If you want media people calling you for interviews, you mustbuild a compelling online media room and media kit. More thanever, media people often check out sources’ web sites beforecalling the sources. They want to see if you’re worth the phonecall. They want to find out if you’re media-savvy. And sometimesthey want to see what other media have interviewed you. If no oneelse has, why should they bother?
You'll find hundreds of tips on how to build an online media roomand media kit in the one-hour tape or CD called "Electronic MediaKits: How to Create Them, Deliver Them and See Instant Results,"in which I interview publicist Bev Harris. of Talion.com. Itcomes with a doanloadable handout of my favorite online mediarooms built by Fortune 100 companies down and sole proprietors.

How to Use the Internet for Free Publicity By Joan Stewart
The Internet is one of the cheapest ways to market your business and obtain free publicity, as long as you're willing to spend the time it takes to spread your name far and wide.
Your task is easier if you have your own website. But even if you can't afford that just yet, you still have many options:
Become an active member of forums or discussion boards. Blatant commercialism is discouraged, but hang around some of these forums long enough, offer free advice and before long people will be asking what else you know–and possibly what kind of product or service you sell. See Secrets for Getting Through to the Media Online.
Start blogging. Anyone can create a blog for free, and blog postings get better search engine rankings than articles at a website, like this one.
Check out the website of the media outlet where you want to be mentioned. It might have contests, special offers, guest books or other features designed to find out more about you.
Many newspapers and magazines feature "hot websites." Ask them to visit yours.
Write articles for electronic newsletters and magazines. In exchange for your article, most editors will let you write a generous tagline telling readers what you do and how to contact you. See Special Report #6: How to Write How-to Articles That Position You as an Expert.
If you don't have the time to write articles, subscribe to other people's free newsletters. Give the editor free advice, tips and nuggets of helpful information for their newsletter, in exchange for using your name and e-mail address.

That deed could be something as simple as making a pop-up say, "Bill Gates is a jerk" or something more insidious like erasing your entire hard drive or worse.
Viruses can't damage hardware. You don't have to worry about your screen blowing up or your hard drive being physically damaged. Viruses only damage software and data files, which are usually much more valuable to you than hardware anyway.
What do you have to do to protect yourself from viruses?
- Backup: if you backup your files regularly, viruses will have little chance of doing great damage to you and your business. Good backups allow you to simply rid yourself of the virus and restore your files to the way they were before you got the virus.
- Antivirus software: McAfee ( http://www.mcafee.com ) and Symantec ( Http://www.symantec.com ) are favorites that make virus software. Have your computer advisor, or someone familiar with each program, suggest which one might be best for you. And don't think these are the only programs available. I just like you to stick with well-supported programs. Keep in mind that you need to continually update these programs weekly, or even more often. It does little good to have there programs if they are even a month old because new viruses are being indentified all the time. Also, having them and using them regularly still won't guarantee you won't get a virus. You could get a new one before the virus companies realize it exists. so, virus software is not substitute for backups.
- Beware of downloads: Only download material from sites that you feel are trustworthy. This is a judgement call in some cases. you can generally trust large, well-known companies.
- Beware of attachments: Don't open e-mail attachments unless they are scanned and found free of viruses. Just dont do it, also train your employees on this issue. Pay special attention to attachments that are typically known to carry viruses like .exe, .vbs, .bat, .pif, and .scr files.
- Scan floppy disks: A friend might give you a floppy disk with a program or data files. Be sure to run it through your virus program before you attempt to use it. Your firend may not even know a virus is on the disk.
- Scan everything else: Even programs downloaded from the internet can carry viruses.
- Isolate infected computers: If you have several computers in your home or office, remove them from your network and do whatever it takes to quarantine or remove the virus. You dont want to let one bad apple spoil the branch
- Do your windows update: Windows computers are attacked all the time. Microsoft sends you "Windows Updates" designed to make your computer run better and safer and you should use them. Some times you'll have to do a quick update everyday. To set your computer to recieve the updates in Windows XP click "start", then click "help and support" then click "windows update"
If you faithfully do these things, you should very little trouble with viruses.
