How To Access Dropbox, Skydrive, Google Drive, FTP & More Online Accounts With a Single Login As A Local Hard Drive
If you are already using online cloud services you know how it gets useful when you have to backup your valuable data and share the files with others with no time. If you are using multiple cloud storages such as Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive you may think about how convenience if you are able to login all of them at once using a single login as the way you are accessing just another disk drive in your “My Computer” window. Actually, it is possible by using a great service called OTIXO.
There are several benefits we can gain using OTIXO such as,
1) Go to OTIXO and register for a personal or business account as your choice.
2) After confirmation of the registration, go to Add Cloud Service and select Dropbox from right side bar and enter a name to your Dropbox folder in OTIXO. Then click Authorize via Dropbox button.
3) On next page Allow authorization to OTIXO via Dropbox
4) Now you can access all Dropbox files and folders under My Cloud Services area of your OTIXO account.
5) Next we have to map a network drive to access your OTIXO account in My Computer windows. To do that first go to Start –> Right Click on My Computer –> Select Map Network Drive
6) On the next window select a driver letter as your choice and enter https://app.otixo.com/webdav to the Folder Field. Then put a tick to Reconnect at logon if not. Then click Finish.
7) Then a login window will popup so you can use your OTIXO login details to access.
8) Then your newly created network drive is shown and can be accessed on My Computer window.
Now you can access your OTIXO account same as other partitions of your hard drive, Simple as that. Remember, you have to connect through the internet when you have to access the network drive. And also if you are heavily relied on cloud services, then you better go with OTIXO business account which offers unlimited bandwidth while the free user account is limited to 2GB of monthly bandwidth.
By default, while you are using Windows operating system, 20% of the bandwidth of your internet connection is reserved for system activities such as downloading Windows updates and other related services. To enhance your internet speed you can use that reserved bandwidth for your day to day internet surfing activities using this step by step guide. In this post, Windows 7 is used to demonstrate the steps.
1.) Go to Start and Type “gpedit.msc” or Windows Key + R and type “gpedit.msc”.
2.) Then Local Group Policy Editor Windows will pop up.
3.) On the left side bar go to Local Computer Policy –> Computer Configuration –> Administrative Tempaltes –> then Click Network on the dropdown –> Go to Qos Packet Scheduler
4.) Double-Click on “Limit reservable bandwidth” and a window will pop out. Set the settings in that window as (1) Enabled is checked and (2) “0” in the bandwidth Limit % text field.
5.). Click Apply and then OK, and you are done (do a system clean up using CCleaner or similar software and restart the browser)
This is the single best "speed tweak" there is, Don't waste your money on a program that can do this for you. Do it yourself and be proud.... you will be glad you did !
Simply framing a smartphone bar-code is enough to answer a common guest question. One of the most commonly asked questions by party guests these days has to do with the password to use a host’s wireless internet, and it can now be answered with the quick scan of QR codes framed on the walls.
This provides convenience for both hosts and for the guests of parties and get-togethers. Neatly hanging framed QR Codes in the main areas of the home, or displaying them in places where guests tend to tuck away to want to check their emails can be a simple and practical way to share the network information for the home. It helps to save a great deal of time and frustration with upper and lower case letters, and where the numbers and special symbols come into play.
QR codes offer instant access to the network password without suffering one miscommunication. Though this was started by a single person, the trend rapidly caught on over the holidays when many parties were thrown and attended. Whether for Christmas, New Year, or any of the other celebrations that happened throughout the month of December, mobile device users rapidly began picking up on the fact that QR codes could communicate fussy information that is commonly requested, without ever having to shout a single digit or code over the din.
Generating QR Codes with this type of useful function is very easy, and, with the right frame, they can even provide a unique decorating piece that can lead to some interesting discussion. Since these bar-codes are simply black and white squares, it’s easy to make them suit any decor, simply by choosing an appropriate frame.
The key to making these QR codes effective is to ensure that they are prominently displayed (so that guests will not overlook them), to include a little message that tells them what it is for, or make sure to inform everyone yourself, and to use a clear
printout of the bar-code so that it will be easy to scan. Try not to place them anywhere that it will be too crowded or where people commonly gather, as this will require too many guests to have to move out of the way as people need to make their scan.
The mobile content revolution is upon us. The hand-sized computers in our pockets have us connected and consuming content 24/7, particularly aiding us in making purchase decisions. Companies have responded by producing content at an astronomical rate in the hopes of becoming recognized experts in their space.
Mobile has become a leading driver in this content-focused phenomenon. “Over half of all Internet traffic now comes from mobile,” explains mobile expert Holly Hamann of Tap Influence. “And a rapidly growing chunk of mobile usage is related to consumer purchases. The volume and pace at which consumers want product-related content as they make purchase decisions is unprecedented.”
This spike in consumer interest is changing how companies reach (and educate) their audience. Leaders now know they can influence purchase decisions by creating content that speaks to the pain points of potential customers, but how do they deliver this content when consumers need it in a form they will actually engage with?
1. Consider the Platform
In this era of mobile, content must be as easy as possible to consume. This is different than the desktop era we’re leaving now.
“In a desktop environment, customers have the ability to research, consider, and consume content in a deeper way,” mobile expert Ioannis Verdelis of Fleksy explains. “On mobile, information production and consumption is shorter and more immediate. You want relevant information served in a concise way.”
Companies have adapted their content to fit this new environment: Intriguing headlines are optimized for Twitter interaction, company blogs and websites are developed with responsive design in mind, and infographics have reached an all-time high in popularity.
Entirely new content-sharing platforms, like Vine and Medium, have risen to mainstream relevancy due to their mobile-friendly nature.
Instead of blindly creating and sharing content everywhere, brands must completely understand which platforms best speak to their ideal audience and then delve into which types of content are best suited for these platforms to effectively grow their influence.
And if we really are entering an era of wearable tech, brands are going to have another entire world through which they can reach their customers.
2. Use Smart Distribution
Mobile has brought a wealth of consumer information. Companies have access to tools that can tell them exactly how consumers behave, where they are located, and what their favorite movies are.
This age of big data can be overwhelming, but these insights, if filtered effectively, can be incredibly useful for “smart” content distribution.
With mobile, content needs to be immediately useful. Smart distribution means injecting content into conversations in an instantly helpful way. This approach can be so influential that, as Robert Rose of Content Marketing Institute predicts, brands will need to add entirely new roles that focus on “peeling back the layers of big data” to make it small and actionable.
Companies can use tools such as Facebook’s Open Graph, Topsy, and Twitter Chats to listen to the conversations going on around them, smartly create targeted thought leadership content, and insert their expertise in a timely and helpful way. Mastering this skill of “timely content distribution” positions brands as go-to sources for knowledge and guidance. Being seen as an expert in this light is invaluable.
3. Embrace Dynamic Content
Not only is our data smart, but our website content now can be, too.
Dynamic content, or the tailoring of content to an individual user’s past behavior, is becoming a better-known term in our marketing vocabulary thanks to its effectiveness. While we are constantly consuming content via mobile, implementing dynamic content in your sales funnel can dramatically speed up your sales cycle and build your influence.
Companies in every industry are using the rise of mobile to implement smarter, timely content creation and distribution strategies to position themselves as leaders in their niche. The ones who adapt most effectively will become recognized experts with their customers.

A growing number of smartphone users are discovering that a QR code scanner app on their device provides a versatile link between the physical and digital worlds. QR codes (short for “quick response”) consist of a grid of black squares on a white background that your cell phone camera can scan to capture the information stored in the code. The code may store a simple string of data, such as a name and phone number, or it may contain more complex data that will trigger a set of actions when you scan it.
You’ve probably seen scores of advertisements with QR codes that link to a product’s web site, but these codes can be used to engage with people or share data many other ways. Here are five ideas designed to make QR codes a regular go-to app in your digital toolkit, and some tips on getting the most out of your QR code experience.
I remember when I was about to take the exam to receive my MCSE Business Intelligence Certificate, I was reflecting of what it took to get to this point. (also with an average annual salary of $101,695 holding this certificate.I was already spending my first years salary in my mind,lol) I went on to think about the future benefits of doing this.Certification .The number of job postings in the cloud computing industry is growing so rapidly that there aren't enough qualified workers available to fill the positions.So, I thought: Get certified and be part of the solution.
86 percent of hiring managers indicate IT certifications are a high or medium priority during the candidate evaluation process. (CompTIA, Employer Perceptions of IT Training and Certification, January 2011)
Eight in ten HR execs verify certifications among job candidates. (CompTIA, Employer Perceptions of IT Training and Certification, January 2011)
Ninety-one percent of hiring managers consider certification as part of their hiring criteria. (Microsoft, Microsoft Certification Program Satisfaction Study, April 2012)
64 percent of IT hiring managers rate certifications as having extremely high or high value in validating the skills and expertise of job candidates. (CompTIA, Employer Perceptions of IT Training and Certification, January 2011)
In a survey of 700 IT networking professionals, 60 percent said certification led to a new job. (Network World and SolarWinds, IT Networking Study, October 2011).
When you pass a Microsoft Certification exam, you become a member of the Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) community with access to all of the benefits provided through the Microsoft Certification Program. You can use your Microsoft account to access the MCP member sites, where you’ll find lots of ways to keep your skills relevant, applicable, and competitive.
Exams you pass and certifications you earn become part of your official transcript, which you can allow potential employers to access directly. A Microsoft Certification is an industry standard that is recognized worldwide and can help open doors to potential job opportunities.
So with all that in mind, it was easy to trudge forward with the exam. Afterward I had no need to wait on my results as I was sure I had passed . I then within three weeks had my first good job working with Google building server farms. An exciting job that had direct benefits and satisfaction knowing so many people knowingly and unknowingly relied on my skills. who would have thought that it took so much work to make things look so easy !!!
So when I thought about passing Exam 70-461 :
Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012
Exam 70-462 : Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases
Exam 70-463 : Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 just so I could take the exam to get my MCSE Business Intelligence Certificate, and the fun I had,people I met and the sleepless nights studying,I realized how important certifications are.
Unless you’ve made your home under a rock for the past ten years, you recognize the ever-growing importance of social media in our society today. Facebook stands at the forefront of the social media empire with 1.2 billion users worldwide, and each of those users has his own personal attachment to his Facebook page. Maybe it’s our unending desire to know other people’s business; maybe it’s our own voyeuristic sensibilities, wanting to share our pictures, our thoughts, and our lives; or maybe it’s just the need for validation, that people "like" what we do. Whatever it is, Facebook continues to be recognized for its “necessity” in our everyday lives, and one aspect of our pages that continues to garner interest or even bring criticism is our relationship statuses: who is dating whom, who is getting married, who is breaking up.
What if we could put a relationship status on our other relationships? How many business relationships would be “complicated?” Since the Panda and Penguin updates, our relationships with online marketing resources have grown more complex, more regulated, and absolutely more in need of a simple, cut-and-dry statement of what we are. It’s time we had the “DTR” conversation; it’s time we define the relationships we’re having.
As a small business, it's easy to be overwhelmed by the number of options to market your business online. Even those of us who do internet marketing full-time find ourselves overwhelmed. This graphic helps you understand at a high level how some of the more popular options work, and which of them might be the best fit for your business based on your own time and budgeting priorities.
Local SEO Optimizing your local business listings like Google Places, Bing Business Portal, and Yelp is one of the most time-effective and cost-effective digital marketing opportunities for small businesses. Start at
Offline Ads w/QR Codes A bridge between the offline and digital worlds, QR codes allow smartphone owners to scan them and be directed to a webpage that contains more information about the product or service being advertised. A number of websites offer free QR Code generators, but there's obviously cost involved to purchase the ads themselves.And custom making scripts for them and using the data gathered by them is time consuming albeit effective.
Link-building Link-building is a key component of traditional SEO. When done well, it's one of the most successful long-term strategies on this list. It's also one of the hardest and most time-intensive to execute, and often requires help from a a professional company such as ours.
Social Media Ads Ads on Facebook and LinkedIn are easy to set up on your own. You can target demographic, geographic & even interest-based ads at reasonable prices. Some guidance is still recommended to ensure the best use of your ad dollars.
LinkedIn Forums LinkedIn is the largest social business network. Developing a strong reputation by answering questions in certain forums like insurance, banking, or consulting may pay off for your business. LinkedIn charges a small subscription fee for optional Pro accounts which give you additional intelligence about other users.
Blogging Blogging is a great way to demonstrate your expertise to, and build relationships with prospects, peers, and your existing customers. It can give a big boost to your SEO but requires a significant time commitment.
Location-Based Services Location-based services like Foursquare and Facebook Places give you the ability to learn a lot about your customers...if you have time to analyze the data. Offering specials (usually small dollar-value) can bring in new customers from these services as well.
Q&A Sites A number of sites offer opportunities to answer questions for prospects; some of the best known of these include Quora and Yahoo Answers. Industry- specific examples include Avvo and Travellr. These sites don't require any set amount of time, but the more questions you answer the faster you'll build your reputation.
Reviews / Social Reputation Customer reviews play a role in your local search engine rankings, but more importantly, they influence whether customers ultimately choose to contact your business. Encourage customers to review you as part of your regular point-of-sale or follow-up process; a handful of web companies like CustomerLobby or Reputation.com can also help.
Google Plus Plus is a new social network from Google. It's sort of a hybrid between Facebook and Twitter, allowing for group conversations with some of of your techier customers and prospects.
As a small business, it's easy to be overwhelmed by the number of options to market your business online. Even those of us who do internet marketing full-time find ourselves overwhelmed.
I hope this graphic, developed for attendees of our University Series , helps you understand at a high level how some of the more popular options work, and which of them might be the best fit for your business based on your own time and budgeting priorities.
Note that each option is marked with at least one flag as an "Organic," "Local/Mobile," "Social," or "Other" tactic. If you've taken our Client Services Questionnaire , I hope that overlaying our recommendations of which general area best matches your business will help you decide where to start marketing your business online.
