The Ultimate Guide To Starting A Side Hustle Part 6: Marketing

When you are starting a side hustle, one of the most important things you can do for your business is market. But marketing can get pretty out of control if not planned strategically. The first thing you need to do is make sure your marketing is synergistic with your sales plan. 

Years ago, I worked for an ad agency in San Diego. Out of the blue someone called our office and asked to speak to the media buyer – which was me. I answered the call and it was a local plumber, who serviced commercial buildings and businesses. He wanted to know if we could create an ad for his business to shine on the side of building at night – because he saw this done in Las Vegas the weekend before and thought it was clever. 

So I asked him, “This particular ad would only be seen during evening

Along with several other factors, including starting periods early, use of combined oral contraceptives, and early menopause — ScienceDaily

Pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, diabetes in pregnancy (gestational diabetes) and pre-term birth are linked to a heightened risk of heart disease in later life, suggests an overarching (umbrella) analysis of data published by The BMJ today.

Several other factors related to fertility and pregnancy also seem to be associated with subsequent cardiovascular disease, say the researchers, including starting periods early, use of combined oral contraceptives, polycystic ovary syndrome, and early menopause.

However, a longer length of breastfeeding was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Previous research has suggested that risk factors specific to women may be linked to cardiovascular disease and stroke, but clarity on the quality of the evidence is lacking and on how the findings can be translated into public health and clinical practice.

So a team of UK researchers searched relevant research databases for published systematic reviews and meta-analyses that investigated links between

States are finally starting to use the Covid-tracking tech Apple and Google built — here’s why

  • New York and New Jersey both released Covid-19 apps this week, bringing the total to 10 states which have published alert apps using technology from the Apple-Google partnership.
  • 70 million people, or 21% of the U.S. population, now has access to a Covid-19 app.
  • Covid apps are starting to catch on six months after the system was first announced because it is becoming faster and easier for governments to build the apps.
  • New York and New Jersey’s apps also work across some state lines, addressing a major issue with the early versions.

With the Feds circling, Google is starting to play nice with smaller rivals

By Paresh Dave and Sheila Dang

(Reuters) – Small rivals of Alphabet Inc’s Google say signs are emerging of more benevolent behavior from the online advertising leader amid accusations by the U.S. government and states that the company uses its dominance to thwart competition.

Among the dozens of software companies who rely on Google as an intermediary to ad buyers and sellers, six told Reuters that the company has become more collaborative on data privacy and other changes with them and industry groups, helping these entities instead of ignoring requests as they have done in the past.

John Nardone, chief executive of Flashtalking – which works with advertisers to personalize messages – said Google recently agreed to open a pipeline to crucial data.

It was an undertaking “that previously I might not have imagined they’d be open to,” said Nardone, who publicly criticized Google’s rigidity last year.

Windows on Arm will support a lot more apps starting next month

Microsoft Edge Chromium Surface Pro X

  • Microsoft has announced that 64-bit app emulation is coming to Windows on Arm next month.
  • The feature will be offered to consumers in the Windows Insider program first.
  • It allows users to run more legacy 64-bit Windows apps, such as games and editing tools.

The first Windows on Arm laptops and convertibles were released in 2018, offering Windows 10 on power-efficient Arm chips rather than legacy x64 silicon from Intel and AMD. Microsoft used emulation to allow 32-bit legacy apps to still run on Windows on Arm, but 64-bit app emulation hasn’t been possible until now.

Now, the Redmond company has announced (h/t: XDA-Developers) that it will indeed bring 64-bit app emulation to Windows on Arm next month. The company says users in the Windows Insider program will get the feature first, so users at large can expect to get it some time thereafter.

This was one of the

Google to Collect 30% Cut on In-App Purchases Starting in 2021

Taking a page out of Apple’s  (AAPL) – Get Report book, Google will begin more strictly enforcing rules that require developers to use Google’s  (GOOGL) – Get Report payment system for in-app purchases. 

Google announced the change on its Android developer blog on Monday, describing it as a clarification of Google’s existing rules on in-app purchases. Google had an existing policy requiring developers to use Google’s billing system, but the policy had been loosely enforced. 

“We’ve always required developers who distribute their apps on Play to use Google Play’s billing system if they offer in-app purchases of digital goods, and pay a service fee from a percentage of the purchase,” wrote Sameer Samat, VP of product management at Android. “We only collect a service fee if the developer charges users to download their app or they sell in-app digital items, and we think that is fair.

Virginia Tech starting QB Hendon Hooker, 22 others out tonight against NC State

Blacksburg, Virginia

Virginia Tech starting quarterback Hendon Hooker was one of 23 players who will not play tonight versus N.C. State.

Just before kickoff, it was announced in the pressbox that the players, as well as two assistant coaches, would not be available for their opener against the Wolfpack.

Virginia Tech has had two games postponed because of COVID-19 outbreaks within its football program. Earlier this week, head coach Justin Fuente told the press he didn’t know if he would have an entire roster against N.C. State.

Hooker, a Greensboro native, is a big loss for the offense. The redshirt junior led the team in total offense (1,911 yards) and had 18 touchdowns a year ago.

Other players missing from the offense will be Darryle Simmons, Peyton Kemmerlin, Terius Wheatley, Keshawn King, Jalen Hampton, Nikia Peerman, Silas Dzansi, T.J. Jackson, Dallan Wright, Jaden Payoute, Elijah Bowick and Conner Dusenbury.
