Support...Does it matter? Answer = YES

So the question today is one that I feel needs answering on a number of
levels. Companies who operate within the US should hold themselves in
today's age of twitter substantially more accountable and responsive to the
needs of the public. This includes those who operate small businesses from
their home and share resources with clients and friends alike.

Stop outsourcing support overseas and start taking time to work WITH customers. Talk WITH them.
Don't talk DOWN to them. They pay your paychecks by purchasing your products.
Stop focusing so much on the new Ferrari and focus more on giving back and helping
others achieve the results you promise in your advertisements. If you can't then admit it
and get back to the drawing board. Some software changes lives. Filing is important.
Doing it digitally does things to help our planet as well.

Now, granted this past weekend was a holiday weekend. However, when support
calls are responded to on a holiday weekend that means someone is there
taking responsibility for things. Bravo. But, it does not mean that the
solution to your software product not functioning with a specific printer
model is for the client to bag their current printer (for any reason) and go
get a new one which is less capable than what your QA department decided to
test with.

Yes I am serious.

Let's take the company who has grabbed my attention antennae today:

http://www.neatco.com/

They make a scanner akin to the Paperport Vx scanner of many years ago
although Paperport really kicked their butt in the performance and
compatibility section these folks wish to make a play in the document filing
space. Their software allows people to scan things such as receipts and
such, but when using their scanner apparently they're able to glean much
more information from the receipts or papers, get OCR done on them and have
some magical filing system created from this. I am all for ridding the
planet of paper.

However, they also wish to play in the Macintosh space and that's where I
come in. They make a product called Neatworks for Mac. It's NOT a Macintosh
product. It has some potential, but generally when developers take a PC
product and make it a Mac product it's counter-intuitive and it's never
really made fully compatible with the BIBLE of UI books (now on the web)-
Apple Human Interface Guidelines

People never seem to read these things now and that's perplexing for me.
When you design a program to work on a computer system should you not at
least read the guidelines and allow all of the keystrokes to work? Allow the
right dialogs to pop when there's a problem, support printers that use
Preview (the application under OSX that scans) correctly within your
application?

One would think so, but they'd be wrong where Neatco is concerned.

Folks you have much to learn about program design, but you have MUCH MORE to
learn when it comes to support.
If I'd ever told a user to go and buy a new computer because they could not
run Pixar's software on it when I worked for Steve Jobs, he'd have had me
drawn and quartered and then he'd have gotten angry.

To tell a customer that their printer does not work, they need to downgrade
to a lousier one because you did not test or even try to support the
higher-end Office Jet printers from HP...You're HIGH. HP would be more than
happy to help you with this problem if someone in your organization would
pick up a phone call them and say "Hi, this is Neatworks Support, we'd like
to borrow an OfficeJet 6500 printer so we can make sure our software works
with it so we can sell our software to people who use your products and make
them happy".

That's what you do. You don't tell the customer that things don't work,
here's the instructions for configuring a lower end product and we're not
supporting the higher end printers. OUCH. When that happens you publicly get
smacked by someone like me who has been on the front lines of support and
would never stand for that. I'd be knocking on doors at development asking
why we don't support the higher end. I'd take my own paycheck go to Costco,
buy the printer for $150 take it to work and give it to development to make
sure it worked. Anything to help my company make a customer happy.

I am more than happy to rave about a product that has a team that at least
is trying, but to push back like this one did...not something I can sit
silently by and not speak up about.

So, here's what I did. I called my Apple Store, I told them the story and
they said: "Mr. Murdock, we'll help you out, bring the software back and
we'll give you a refund, we appreciate your business".

I returned, logged into Mail, went to the message from Nuance offering a
Paperport 12 offering at an unheard of $29.99 and I bought that! Thanks Nuance & Digital River
for a flawless transaction.

If Neatco wants to set things right, they can package up one of their lovely
little NeatReceipts for Mac Printer & Software packages and ship it to me at
my POBox. I'll then think about saying something nice about that product once I've
seen whether or not it actually does what's advertised. Because the
Neatworks for Mac product alone gets -

0 out of 5 DMs ( a DM is a DocMurdock Approved Rating. 5 is great, 0 is
"don't touch this with a 10 foot pole".

Thanks for taking time to read this long drawn out explanation, but some
things have to be addressed. Hopefully this saves a lot of Mac users a lot
of hassle.

Yet another fake paypal email

Just to share with you this one, I just received. Am highlighting the issues inside of if so you can see where the fakeness is:

So all the info in yellow is the fake things. PayPal did not send this. They don't use Outlook Express to send emails out. They always use your proper information and they never ask you to click a link in an email to verify anything.

The link below in the email will drop all sorts of things on your computer when you click it, so never do that in these emails, simply forward them to spoof@paypal.com and then delete the original email.

Thanks,

Michael

More fake holiday emails

Okay, here's two. The first is from BOFA (or supposedly from them), What the person sending it does not know is that I closed my BOFA account over 4 years ago and have never looked back at BOFA. So they send this email asking me to click a link. Not happening. What you can see in the header information of the email is that it's sent by some place in MEXICO it appears. OUCH.

This next one is from Sharebuilder. What's funny about this is that I have an account with them, but with a classified email address that they'll never figure out. The funny part about this message is that it's sent from OUTLOOK EXPRESS. I guess these guys could not afford a new netbook with Windows 7 yet!!!

The sad part about it is that someone else receiving this message may react quickly and click the link. Not a good thing. Just delete these messages when you see them, they are NOT from the place that they appear to have been sent from.

This email originates somewhere around Norway according to the tracking numbers in it. Best thing you can do is delete these. I dig into the header information in them just for kicks and to see what things people are doing.

Am not sure if a webinar would be helpful for some to cover this, but if so, let me know and we can put on one.
Remember to just delete these emails. Don't click on anything in them, and do not forward them to me, simply delete them.

Gotten one of these recently?

The picture below is from a FAKE email being sent around trying to get people to click links in them and go to websites, sign in with your information and give the crooks a way to:

a. steal your identity
b. empty your bank account
c. both

You'll see them more and more often around this time of the year. A lot of them from Paypal (it appears, but really not them). If you receive one of the paypal ones, simply forward the email to them at spoof@paypal.com and they will set out to alert all of their clients about it. They're really good about following up on them.

Please watch out during the holidays and don't get taken to the cleaners by some Scrooge.

Happy Thanksgiving to all in advance of the day.

Can I have payments?

If you're asking for payments when payments are not offered, you're thinking in lack & limitation. When you're ready for a product or a service, the avenue will show up for you to be able to get what you seek. Don't always seek the shortcut as it's a way to create more lack in your sphere. We know that's not what you seek to do.
What we find is that more who show up in complete resonance with something, the more success they have in it. But when they seek to get all of something and they're not prepared to pay for that product or service, but they want it all now, they desire it all now, they must have it all now...do you feel the scarcity perpetuating as a result of the fear of never being able to achieve full payment with it? It's right there in those words. If you don't see payments offered, ask for that which you desire, but if the answer is that payments are not available then it's in complete integrity with you to stop, breathe, and know this is not the right time for you to be with this product or service as it may distract you from your actual path which you're on.

Timing is something that will appear for you when you have room in your sphere for this. Breathe, know that it will be as it's supposed to be and that you can achieve this.

The means and the path by which you can achieve it shall appear.

We love you.

Self worth...

If someone says something about how you look, does it bother you? Do you react to it? If so, this is about your self-worth & how you feel about you. It has nothing to do with them. They're a mirror who appeared in your life to show you something about you that you desire to heal. Look to it as guidance, not "AN INSULT". There's no good or bad, there is merely "the lesson" & what you receive from it to share with others. 

We love you.

When you're committed...

When you are truly committed to your vision, to what you desire to achieve, all will show up magically for you. If money is missing, check with your loving of you and knowing of selfworth. If resources are missing, are they what you really need now in this moment to be successful? If clients are missing, would you really be able to step up & be present with them, or would they be a distraction from you & the creation of the business. When you're ready for them, the universe will roll the red carpet out for them to walk up to and ring the doorbell. It's all about you, the love of you, your connection to you, and your love of all that is. Without love, nothing is possible.

Friday the 13th...Something Special for you

**NOTE this is good until 12Midnight November 14th, 2009**

There's a thought out there that good things don't happen on this date. Well until 12 Midnight tonight you can have them happen to your website or wordpress blog for the next 6 months, AND the first 10 people who use the code word of MORE in the shopping cart will save an additional $800 off the package price of what I am going to discuss below.

If you want to skip the reading, click this link and purchase:

http://tinyurl.com/yjhwx52 - You'll notice this link pasted below a few times, it's to make it easy for you when you're ready to take advantage of this offering which expires at 6pm on the 14th.

Otherwise read on - 

Before we get to the pricing of this package. I want to share some thoughts with you about why you'd want this and what it can do for your website and your business at large.

Search engine optimization or website optimization as its also known is the process by which your website is made to be more visible on the web when appearing as a result of someone searching for something.

In english, someone goes to google, yahoo or bing, types in something related to what you do for business, your website shows up on page 1.

I get these next 5 questions all the time:

a. So how does this happen? 
b. Is it automatic?
c. I heard if I had a blog that this is not necessary, is that true?
d. Will I get more sales from this?
e. What does this do for my business?

The answers to those (which you may be asking right now are):

a. It happens by taking your website information and presenting it to the various search engines once some changes have been made to the site to make it more "attractive" to the search engine. None of these changes are related to the design of the site per se', but rather to some specific code areas within the backside or code area of the website or blog.

b. Yes and no. Some companies will use automatic software to submit your website to the search engines. The ones that do are leaving out some key elements that we don't because we submit both manually and automatically. You never want to work with a company that only does one and not the other. Reason why is because they'll miss some key submission times and days and that will do a disservice to your sites exposure on the web.

c. blogs are nothing more than websites that allow a user to more readily add content to them. Some are easy to perform SEO on as a result of plugins, some others are complex and do not allow the flexibility desired so they're more difficult to promote to the search engines.

d. You may, or you may not. It's never the intent of SEO to produce more sales. The intent is exposure of your website to your target market as a result of their search and to render a result to them of your brand being very visible to them within the results of their search. Top 5-8 results.

e. For your business what SEO really does is to increase exposure of your website in the search results of what people are seeking on the web. Can it increase sales? Sure it can, but that's never the intent. It's the wish and the dream of many that it does, but the plain truth of the matter is that's NOT what the purpose of SEO is, and this is where many SEO's get in trouble because they don't set or manage customer expectations correctly.

So that's the top 5 questions asked of me all the time. Let's take that last one and expand on it a little bit though because you can increase sales with SEO by doing some extra work in some areas that I coach and teach and include in the package that you're going to see when you click that link below. By doing/performing certain regular tasks in combination with good quality SEO, you can increase your sales. BUT These are things that YOU as the owner of your business need to do, we can only advise you what they are, look over what you're putting out, and offer suggestions and guidance around what to do, how often, and what not to do.

If you want to skip the reading, click this link and purchase:

http://tinyurl.com/yjhwx52

Okay, so what exactly did we do? Well...I put together a package and we're calling it BIGSEO Friday the 13th. Price? $1800.00 and it runs for 6 months. But for the first 10 people signing up, we've slipped in an additional discount for your taking action. Use the code MORE in the shopping cart and when you click Apply you'll save an ADDITIONAL $800 off the price! $1,000 for a really great package, details are on the page when you click the link below!

Why? Because it's nice to get something really great for a really low price on a day like Friday the 13th. After all, you deserve it!

http://tinyurl.com/yjhwx52 << Click here, submit your payment info and lets get to work putting your website on page 1 of the top search engines.

See you on the other side.

A shortage...What shortage?

The only shortage is that created by us. The fear of shortage or lack is created by us to challenge us to achieve greater heights. Why place the mountain in front of you when you know you can achieve whatever you desire? Just put the Nike's on and dash through it, not around it, not over it, but through it. You put it there, it's nothing but an illusion. So long as you are drawn to there being a shortage there shall be. Know this: The abundance you seek outside of you is within you. Wipe the fog from the window to your soul and see what's waiting there for you to take. It's all within you. Once you do this, those material things you seek will be drawn to you as iron filings to a magnet are so drawn. And so it is. -The Many

So...Who are The Many?

Welcome.

Thanks for taking time to read this note as hopefully it will clarify some things for some. I know it will help to solidify that which I asked for and was granted several months ago, and it's always fun to remember when it happened and what's happened as a result of it because it's so amazing.

Having been a study of law of attraction and the spirit it was due to happen at some point, but one could not pick an exact time. What has happened did so at the perfect time as that was deemed by a power greater than mine. I merely opened the channel of request and was granted that which I requested.

It was a day a few months back when I was sitting at my computer responding to various messages on twitter of all places when I was sent a series of messages from someone centered around "TIME" and a concern that there was never enough time, time was missing, they wished they had more time, etc. I was thinking to myself "Why is this person hitting me with these things about TIME?" When in my head I heard a voice simply say "Time is of no concern, there's more than enough time".

When that happened I literally glanced around the room looking to see where the voice was coming from. It was within that moment that I felt a series of chills and then a feeling of being hugged. Nobody was in the room. I was completely alone. I knew that something amazing was going to happen, I did not know when, but this was a good clue.

So I went on about my day and did things, came back to twitter in the evening and there were more messages about TIME. Concerns about time, not enough time, etc., And again the voice "Time is of no concern, there's more than enough time". So I responded to one of the messages and said "This sounds like something I am writing about TIME, I think you'll like it when it's done", or words to that effect.

I then got a bunch of messages asking when it was going to be done, they needed this thing now, could I send a draft, etc. I was in shock, when the voice came back and said "Pay Attention", I responded with a note simply saying "Before this night is over, this will be done".

I had no idea what I was going to say, what I was going to write, how this was going to happen, I only knew that it needed to happen. So I took a deep breath and asked the Universe for some help.

"Universe, I know that I am worthy of receiving all that I ask for. I am deserving of the same, I am tired and weary of questioning my worthiness and I ask to be shown, to be shared with, and to be a channel of messages to any and all. I commit to share what is presented to me in an unfiltered fashion so that they may know these are not of me, but of many beyond this time and space, please bring this to me now so that I may answer these questions of TIME and so much more"

In the time that I said that and took another breath there was a massive question mark that formed in my head and I asked "AM I TRULY WORTHY?" the voice came back and said "YES, YOU ARE WORTHY, and it because YOU HAVE ASKED, SO SHALL YOU NOW RECEIVE".

My entire body felt like it was on fire. My hands flew across the keyboard and I began to type. In what seemed like hours I typed and typed and typed and finally in the end I looked at the clock and a mere 10 minutes had passed in human terms of time. I laughed as I looked at the clock and it literally jumped forward 10 minutes to signify to me the passing of that period of time.

What I then began to hear in my head were voices. Not voices of a strange nature but voices of love, of connection, of clarity, of knowledge, wisdom, understanding. Many, many voices. I did not know what to call these voices as there were so many of them. At first I called them the 100 as there was literally 100 of them coming at me, but now it feels so right to simply name them as "The Many". They speak in different voices, but when they have a point to get across it comes through as a clear harmonious chord of information that that's flowed through me and shared outwardly to others with unconditional love. No judgement, no blame, no shame.

The Many have come and spoken to many through the website link below:

TIME

And also through connections directly with some who will probably come forward and speak as a result of reading this writing. We're happy to be able to share when we are asked.

So when I speak and you notice that I type as WE, that's them coming through me to you. Simply put I get to be Me, Michael. I maintain my freedom of choice and of being the person that I am, but I speak at times with a voice that carries with it range, color, and toning of the many. I've spoken with spirituals who've witnessed this and been delighted at it. It's fun to be able to share with all that which is seen from the broader perspective and I am so grateful and humbled to have been chosen at this time to do so.

I am also grateful for the mechanism of places like facebook, twitter, and others to allow me to speak as this and to share what comes through. It's interesting to see the reactions that surface in others and what comes up around what's shared. We share without reservation as that's what was committed to. You're welcome to question this and we encourage that you do as that's how in your heart you'll see that you two are worthy of the connection to source. It's literally there for the asking. It's when you start with your heart, connect deeply to know, and begin to know without question that you are deserving, that this channel opens and it never ceases to flow.

With much love for all, understanding, wisdom and peace.

And so it is.

Michael & The Many

Mac OSX 10.6.2 is out

Mac Users: OSX 10.6.2 is out. Make sure you do a software update after quitting all of your running programs. It's a bit snappier, seems to use less ram memory to run with, and my Mac Mini is running cooler since installing it, so there may have been some efficiency updates that they're not disclosing :) I love those!

Strange Macintosh Behavior

Have you ever opened your Apple Mail and there's no messages bolded so it appears as if you've read them all? Or you send out a message and the font is bold even when you tell it not to be? This happened to me this morning and I found a quick solution that saved me from rebooting the computer.

QUIT the FINDER - Now your questions is probably two fold, but basically the Finder is what you look at when you're looking at your screen and the Apple Menu in the upper left has the word FINDER next to it like so:

How do you quit the finder? Simple, Go under the Finder menu to the last item on the menu and select it. It's the QUIT function.

This will cause all of your icons sitting on your desktop to vanish. To bring them back, simply click on the Smiling Face Icon at the far left of your DOCK

When you've done this, the icons will magically reappear. Notice also that when the Finder is not running, it's like any other application in that the little glow dot is gone from underneath it.

When it's properly restarted it gets its dot back as seen below.

If you were having the same problem as I was with Mail, the problem will now have vanished. Relaunch Mail and see that now your unread messages are back to being bolded and when you write a message the font is no longer all bold.

That's your DocMurdock™ Macintosh TIP for this day.

You can also look for me on the Women's Information Network in the Zen of Technology Show. www.thewinonline.com


Happy Sunday.

If you're busy...

If you're BUSY, are you really achieving anything out of the BUSYNESS? Probably not. Normally busyness is created when you don't have a plan and you're grasping at straws. Work even though a four letter word some despise can be fun and enjoyable when it's your passion. So breathe, know you deserve great things, that everything you need to achieve your goals is lining up for you, and just go for it. FEAR? Imagined & created resistance by others to stop you due to their lack of belief in them. You know better :) We love you.

Turn Website Visitors into Prospects & Prospects into Buyers

There's a ton of science around this subject, but I will distill it down for you very quickly so that it's not confusing. I have the power to help you turn your website visitors into prospects and those prospects into buyers.

Are you ready? Good.

You've built a website or had one built. People are showing up (or not, because you're not promoting it), and when they reach your site they leave quickly and don't purchase. There's a number of reasons why they're leaving and yes they are all because of you. Why? Energetically you don't deserve them. Now what do I mean when I say that and will you be required to get into a sweat lodge to find out? Absolutely not. And here's what I mean.

When you had your site built, energetically you were not clear about what you wanted the site to accomplish for you. Yes, for you. Since you are your business and your business is you the two are synonymous.

How do we shift this? Well first we have to look at the problem, understand it, connect with it, understand it more and then create a solution for it, and implement the solution. Sounds difficult and time consuming. It's neither. Nor does it cost an arm and a leg. At least not for the 1st 50 of you that go to the following link:

SITEReview

When you arrive there you'll read a bit about what this program includes. It's just a couple of days worth of one on one time, but the value is substantial and the rewards for you when you finish the implentation of what we'll be discussing will be quite substantial.

I don't want to bore you with all of the details here, but needless to say there are some out there that provide a free report or assessment of your website which a lot of you receive and never do anything with. Why? Because it's free and you get what you pay for. I have merely discounted this because it's a nice thing to do. In no way will the value of this package be diminished by the pricing of it. You'll receive the higher value as that's the way I do business.

What will be key in all of this is your willingness to follow the guidance given to you and to receive the goodness coming to you, guiding you, without question as all of it will be from a much broader perspective. Yes, this is a spiritual as well as practical package. Why? Because everything that we do is tied to the universe and once you are in alignment with the mission and objectives of your website and what you desire it to help you achieve, there's really no reason for it not to do just that.

SITEReview

You will receive email and phone access to me directly for the period of one month. You will also receive documentation specific to your site, resources that we recommend you use to achieve changes to your site quickly and easily. If there are other things that we do which you'd like to engage us for in the process of this, the cost you pay for SITEReview will be deducted from that other program offering. *The program cost must exceed $1000*

Lastly, the support you will receive is not available on the web anywhere else. You are getting the top of the line and you're also getting spiritual support has helped many get on track quickly and achieve their goals very quickly.

We look forward to serving you and helping you achieve what you desire from your presence on the web.

Michael Jackson - "This is It"

Having grown up on the music of the Jackson 5, the Jackson's, then Michael it's been a roller coaster of a musical life and to see the news a couple of months ago and all that's happened, it's sad to see that he's physically gone from us.

In the spiritual sense he's still here with us and speaking to us each time we listen to one of his songs or think of him. So yesterday it was fun to have Maria say to me "Let's go see "This is It" tomorrow". I could not wait to go see this after seeing some of the footage and hearing the reviews. I wanted to see it for myself.

Most concert style films that you see are very documentary-ish and laden with lousy cuts from some editor looking to do his version of things. In looking at this film I think that Michael would have been proud of what they did with it. It was fun to see him dancing, signing, talking to people during the process, coaching the dancers, singers, musicians on how HE wanted his music played, sang, performed. He was very spiritual in his conveyance of desire and what struck me so was that he was humble in his requests.

He also took time to thank the maker as well as each and every one on the crew for their giving to him of their talents.

Recommended? Oh yes, you bet. Will I buy the DVD when it comes out? Yes, it will be added to our collection. The songs were well done, the music well performed, this is truly a nice tribute to a musical mind lost too early. He did not look 50 in this film and he did not look to be ill at all. He looked amazing and fluid as always in his moves. No hesitation whatsoever and every dancer who watched him move did so with great respect and admiration as well as applause.

Do yourself a favor, if you are a fan, go see this movie. If you're not a fan, go see this movie. By the end of it you will be a fan.

For those of us who grew up on Michael's music and dancing this has been tough. I remember where I was when I first saw the Moonwalk on Motown's 25th. I was at a club in Santa Monica down by the Pier standing there sipping margaritas with some friends when I looked up and saw Michael take the stage to sing Billie Jean...and like he was on oil he slid his shoes back and up back and up so rythmically, stopped spun and landed up on his toes, the entire restaurant went nuts. We all yelled, applauded and never realized that this was musical history in the making. The next day there were people all over town talking and trying to imitate the dance. Months later they began to and the rest is history.

There's so much more Michael did for all of us and I am only going to cover those things which I believe to be true here. I want to say thanks Michael for the memories, the music and helping all of us see a better, younger part of ourselves.

Bless all who read this and pass it along.

Much love.

Michael
