1. Do not do too much self-promoting. No one is going to follow you, or pay attention to what you tweet if you are constantly self-promoting. You have to earn that right. You should only promote one time for every fifty valuable tweets. People get sick of hearing you tweet their own horn, so make sure you earn that right by providing value first, and promotion second.

So, this is a positive, and profitable thing to do. Being listed in an 800 number directory would help to filter some of those people who aren't as interested in what you have to offer, out so that you would get more serious calls and fewer wasted calls. So, how do you get listed in the 800 number directory?

Second life is an online virtual world where members can set up a life, in which they can explore, create relationships, and develop socially the more times they return. Game players are referred to as "residents" and they can buy and sell and live in a free market just as they could in the United States. The virtual money traded is US dollars. Although many refer to Second Life as a game, it really is not as it has no winners or losers. It is simply an online meeting spot where people can live a virtual reality. In October 2006 there were one million registered users, and in December 2006 there were two million registered users. At any given time there are ten to twenty thousand people living a virtual life on Second Life. (For additional facts and those stated above please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Life).
