This is the basic building block of all successful online businesses. You have to be able to harness the massive buying power of the incredible flow of online traffic. To do so, one of a couple possible things must happen. You have to:

Have a product or service that is in such high demand that you make so much money to become a millionare in 12 months. This is assuming that you have the ability to create or purchase a robust ecommerce website capable of handling massive customer orders and payment processing and that you have the staff to handle all the front and back end orders.

It is imperative that these matters are verified in advance

By Rem

Safeguarding our family and home are probably two of the oldest and most primitive of our instincts but when you need to replace all the food in your freezer or the carpets after a flood then you really appreciate the time you spent sorting out your home insurance. If you own your place, you may be offered a joint policy that covers both the building and the contents as well although this may not be worth it if you rent accommodation.

Before you actually take out a house insurance policy it is a good idea to take an inventory of your place listing all of your things you possess. One way to do this in addition to a written record is to make a video recording of all the rooms including things you own that have value and if you do not own a video then a photographic camera will do just as well. This can be added to your stock and will supply a full record of your house and possessions. Remember to update this register each time something fresh is added so should you have to claim on your place policy it will be accurate and up to date.

Nearly all providers in the insurance market are able to provide quotes and terms online so it is possible to call for a few of quotes which gives you the chance to view the best for you. The advantage of getting an instant online quotation is that insurance quotations from major companies are brought to your personal computer screen in a matter of a couple of seconds. Online home insurance is usually less costly since overheads are cut from the picture so the providers can offer smaller premiums and insurance charges. You should not rush and choose a firm that does not have a good reputation just because they have offered the lowest insurance quote, as you may rue not checking this point.

Insurance firms call the amount they protection as the sum assured and this amount is the most they will pay out on your plan should you make a claim for total loss through damage, accident or burglary. The sum assured is often worked out by the insurance supplier for you based on figures for replacing the contents of an average house.

The limit of protection that your plan covers is called the sum assured and this is the total amount that an insurance insurer will pay out should the contents of your house be lost, stolen or damaged. As luck would have it, some providers will include the sum insured in their contents quote automatically. Some firms are more diligent and may make a physical examination of your home or specifically request an amount of cover from you and then work out how much it will cost from the figures you furnish. In some situations this may be a preferable alternative if you think that the automatic sum assured sum will not protection the cost of replacing your things you possess[personal possessions.

The house owner should be aware that whatever the conditions of the insurance policy, it is the household owner who is responsible if a claim is rejected for something that the policy does not provide for so it is imperative that these matters are verified in advance of any decision being made.

Now is by far the best time for good financial advice.

By Chris Clare

We tend to turn to professionals when it comes to needing advice with important things in life, such as doctors, dentists, accountants and the like. However a lot of us can be reluctant when it comes to seeking financial advice. People only use an independent financial advisor, or IFA, when they need something, and don't generally ask for their advice or expertise beforehand.

For those of you who don't already know an Independent Financial Advisor is a person who is independent of all the life insurance companies banks and financial institutions. A good one will actually work for you the client. Whilst a lot of them work on a commission basis this rarely effects the advice that they give you, due mainly to the fact that they are duty bound to give you best advice and furthermore they have to confirm why they have done what they have done for you in writing, and trust me if it is not the best advice then it is almost impossible to justify it.

So what exactly can these independent financial advisors offer? Well, they can offer almost all financial products on the market such as life insurance, pensions, savings plans, investments and of course mortgages. Some advisors have additional services such as inheritance tax planning and will writing services.

It has to be said that all these products and services can be found in most high streets so why are financial advisors better? Financial advisors don't just sell products, you don't walk into one of their offices and ask for life insurance. You generally walk in and ask them to advise whether or not you need life insurance and it is that reason alone that makes independent financial advisors different from all the other retails outlets of financial products.

An independent financial advisor will spend all the time necessary sitting down with you and going through every aspect of your financial life to assess any further financial services you may need. They will assess any policies you already have. They will gauge your attitude to risk to determine how much you are willing to risk in the hope of financial payout. Most importantly, they will assess how much you can afford to be spending on your planning for future security.

They will also ask what you are planning for exactly. Do you want to pay your mortgage off early, do you want to retire at a certain age, do you want to protect yourself against the possibility of illness in the future? Important factors to consider.

By doing this they can build a personal profile of where you are and where you would like to be financially. Armed with this information they can then go and find the products on the market that will be of best value and benefit for you and your budget.

Once they have done this they are then in a position to sit with you again and go through their proposals for you and if they are acceptable to you they can move it all forward and make applications on your behalf.

You would think that that is where it would end, whilst it probably would end there with most providers it rarely does with an IFA. Your IFA will generally speak to you every year or so and make sure that the recommendations they made all that time ago are still the most suitable for your ever changing situation. It has to be noted that peoples finances change frequently and as such these regular updates and financial heath checks are vital.

So it can be seen that the role of an Independent Financial Advisor is one that is vitally important with your regards to your financial wellbeing. They assess where you are financially, structure a plan to best suit your needs, source the products that best suit you financially, and are on hand in the future if you need to reevaluate your position due to changes in circumstances both personally and in general. You have to agree that this is the sort of professional advice that is well worth seeking out.

Is the buy to let market killed by market restrictions?

By Chris Clare

It would have to be the understatement of the decade to say that the mortgage market has seen somewhat of a change in the last few months. What was recently a rolling unstoppable machine has been well and truly stopped dead in its tracks, and now the business of giving and getting mortgages seems to have ground to a shuddering halt.

As a result of this tightening of the credit markets, lenders have decided what type of business they want and more importantly what type of business they don't want. As a result, self certification is all but a Dodo and extinct, a high loan to value mortgage is considered 80%. On that note if you say 100% mortgage to anyone in the industry they will say wow I remember those didn't they come with flared trousers and some very dubious music ha-ha. But seriously the main business area that has suffered and suffered in a big way is Buy to Lets.

The area of buy to let has undoubtedly been one of the driving forces in pushing the housing market to its peak in recent years. Nevertheless, it has proven to be detrimental to both the economy and Joe Public. The reason why I say Joe Public is because it has been ordinary folk who have bought buy to lets in an effort to make an extra income, which may be the root of the problem.

Car auctions in the early part of the 1980s were deemed to be the bastion of the motor trade. Anyone that was not from the trade was seen as an outsider and indeed could quickly be spotted as a rube who was well out of his depth. But gradually the situation began to change and more and more people were trying their hand at spotting a bargain and tidying it up for a small profit. People from all sorts of backgrounds were giving it a go.

But all that happened is these people with their limited experience just got caught up in the moment and paid too much for the wrong cars and on a lot of occasions got stung. The reason I am telling this story is the exact same thing happened with buy to lets. Even though the sums of money are far greater than a couple of grand for a car the process was the same, inexperienced people playing in a market they knew nothing about. A lot of people paid too much for their properties. In some cases people with no experience were buying houses they hadn't even seen.

Now I have had ten years professional experience with regards to purchasing property and obviously I don't mean the house that I live in. I have been involved in the buy to let market and in all that time I have never, nor would I consider, buying a property that I had not viewed. And I would say that this would be applicable to any landlord. So what baffles me is why someone without any previous experience would deem it a sensible thing to do.

Unfortunately what has happened is as the saying goes; they have ruined it for the rest of us. The irresponsible borrowing and buying has put the lenders at risk as they are finding themselves flooded with customers who can't repay their loans, and as such, the lenders now don't want to lend to anyone. Loan to value for buy to lets has dropped recently from 85% to 75% and it is estimated that with falling property prices, this will drop even further.

So what is to become of the mortgage industry with it being in such turmoil with little sign of a way out? In my opinion, forward thinking lenders should formulate a product specifically for buy to let landlords, who already have a proven portfolio, say 10 properties or more for example, the sort of people that have a proven track record when it comes to managing properties and tenants. At the very least it would be a way of getting buyers back into the market which could help move the mortgage market as it is from a standstill, and I don't think anyone will deny that the mortgage market now needs all the help it can get.

Have A Better Future With Debt Consolidation

By Eric Jilson

Living in today's world, it's almost impossible to function without using and managing debt. The unrelenting needs and never-ending changes in our financial lives require that we utilize credit in one way or another. When properly maintained and used, credit is a good thing for most people's financial lives, allowing them to purchase homes, vehicles, and other items they would likely not otherwise be able to get without years of savings.

Often, though, debt piles up rather than being paid and people begin to slowly feel their freedom being drained as the debt begins to take over their financial lives. Becoming always short of money, barely able to make payments on time, or being late because you just didn't have the money yet. Sacrificing lifestyle choices and worse, all begin to get worse as the debt mounts. Eventually this comes to a head and has to be dealt with.

Before it gets to that point, though, many people turn to debt consolidation to relieve the pressure and take off the stress. A debt consolidation and management program can reduce your debt, provide you with a means to get out of debt, and manage your credit to show you how to utilize it in a healthy manner that doesn't build your debt load, but instead lowers it.

So how does this work and is it really what it says it is?

Debt consolidation works by consolidating all of your debt into one loan at a lower interest rate, usually paying off your existing debt at lower rates than what's owed. This means your new loan is for a lower amount that you owed before and at a lower (usually fixed) interest rate. So now instead of many monthly payments at varying interest rates, you have one payment at one interest rate.

Some of these programs will, instead of setting up a new loan, set up a management program in which current debts are "fixed" with the creditors, lower payments and interest rates are set up, and your single payment to the management program pays all your creditors automatically. These are not "loans" but they are consolidations of credit under one management system.

Most creditors are happy to either cut what's owed in order to get paid off so they do not have to worry about a struggling client or to take lower interest payments in return for getting a more guaranteed monthly payment to service the debt. A creditor's biggest worry is that a debtor will declare bankruptcy and the creditor will walk away with nothing at all but an unpaid debt.

Some management companies will offer incentives to the client looking to consolidate their debt, making claims about how quickly the debts will be paid and how a "new start" will be had once it's done. In reality, it takes time to pay off these debts and, in the mean time, the person's credit is often on hold and unusable.

Further, some consolidation management companies take monthly payments, issue "cease and desist" orders as attorneys to creditors, demanding that they talk only to the management company about the client's debt, and then let the monthly payments pile up without being sent to creditors. They do this in order to pressure the creditors into taking even lower payoffs (in lump sums from this "account") and to collect interest on the money being paid to them as it builds in an account. While this is legal, it is deceptive and often ruins the client's credit for a very long time.

So finding a reputable and reliable debt consolidation and management firm is a must if you're in the market to consolidate your loans and want to manage your debts correctly. Consolidation is often the best and most effective way to reduce debt or to completely eliminate it and get clear of it as quickly as possible without totally destroying your credit.

Is throwing money at the mortgage market the solution?

By Chris Clare

Over the last four weeks you may be aware that many governments have been pumping money into their failing banking systems in an attempt to salvage the mortgage markets. The reason for this is that all the bad debt, known as toxic debt, is having a detrimental effect on the financial institutions and is making us all worse off.

The burning question now is whether or not this cash injection will have the desired effect so that we are able to borrow money confidently again. At present I am only able to comment on the effect these changes will have on the general public in the United Kingdom, as I am unaware of how other global markets work within their countries, and therefore am unqualified to comment. There may be similarities in how the markets work, but it is best to take my comments here as a rough guide only if outside the UK.

The general public is under the impression that the credit crunch is due to the banks not having enough money to lend. Logic would then dictate that by giving the banks more money the problem is resolved. Unfortunately this is rather far from the truth. The lack of money to lend is only the tip of the iceberg. Banks have been burned by the bad debt accrued over the last few years and are therefore now much more cautious about lending again. Their careless actions in the past will prove much more difficult to rectify in times to come.

House prices are the most important element of the current financial situation, and the prices are dropping fast and are showing no sign of stopping any time soon. Because of this drop in value, lenders are having to be extra vigilant when it comes to lending money from now on. This is particularly relevant when it comes to loan to value (LTV), which is the amount lent in relation to the value of the property. For example, in 2007, lenders were giving 95%, 100% and even 125% of the value of properties.

Most experts will agree that as long as the market is buoyant, this lending is alright. If you take into account that the market was rising at a rate of 10%, lending 125% on a property of 100,000 means you are lending 125,000, but with that 10% rate of increase in value over just 3 years your LTV has already dropped to around 93%. In a buoyant market, this sort of lending would be considered a calculated profitable risk and was therefore given the o.k..

However house prices are not rising by 10% per annum in fact they are falling by at least 10% and some people think that these falls will be worse. So with that in mind if you now lend to someone 85,000 on a 100,000 house in three years your loan could be as high as 118% LTV. This as I am sure you will agree unacceptable lending in this climate. This therefore clearly explains why lenders are unwilling to lend over 90% LTV and in some cases 85%.

So with regards to the money bailouts, what does this mean for our financial future? In my professional opinion I believe that there will be little overall effect, although with any luck time will prove me wrong. Although lenders are now obliged to lend in 2009 at the rates of 2007, as you will see from the first part of this article they won't be able to lend at the high LTV rates of 2007. The people who are now desperate to borrow are those coming out of rates already arranged in the past 5 years, and these borrowers are going to push the LTV to its limit because of the drop in house prices.

You also need to take into account that a lot of people in the last few years have acquired mortgages on a self certification basis. These sort of mortgages are now considered high risk for lenders and so are mostly unavailable, and even if they are available they will be at greatly reduced LTVs, so what options do these people have to chose from?

Don?t get me wrong, I am all for the government trying to give the economy a much needed boost, but I just think that the institutions will be unwilling to take the risk on loans at the 2007 and before levels. They will most probably stockpile for the future. This will mean that house prices will continue to spiral downwards due to the LTV not being at a suitable level and the banks will be even more cautious about the type of loans on offer and also the vetting process. It really is a difficult situation and I think that the only way around it if for one of the institutions to bite the bullet and take a calculated risk with regards to their lending.

How To Improve Credit Score

By John Cooper

To improve your credit score can seem like an impossible task. The scoring model seems to factor in tons of information and makes it seem as if you have no control over your score.

This is wrong. You can focus on a couple easy steps and develop a good credit score.

1. Dispute and remove negative items on your credit report. This can be done yourself or you can hire a service to do it on your behalf.

2. Pay off any verified bad credit item on your report. In exchange for your payment have the lender remove the item from your credit report.

3. Pay your bills on time. It is alleged that missing one monthly payment can cause your score to drop by up to 50 points.

4. Open a new line of credit. You will get the most benefit if this is a revolving line of credit. We recommend an unsecured credit card.

When you make your monthly payment you will be creating a positive payment history. This is a very large part of your credit score. If you have difficulties opening an unsecured credit card then get a secured card. Double check and make sure your credit card is reported to all three major bureaus.

Your score will get a bump if you can keep your balance at approximately 10% of your credit limit. This shows that you do use your credit and that you use it responsibly.

5. Pay off large debt. Your score will get a bump if you have high available credit to debt. The bureaus want to make sure you are not overextended and by showing them you have available credit your score will get a bump.

These are the only factors you should focus on when improving your credit score. There is one last tip that is surrounded in controversy.

6. Piggy back credit, this is when you are added as an authorized user on an account with a high credit limit and low balance. The benefit you get is the account is not reported on your credit history.

This tactic was widely abused and the scoring model has made some changes. It is said to have removed the benefit however it is debated as to if those changes have taken place yet.

In sum, focus on steps one through five and you are on your way to a 700 credit score. You don't have to live with bad credit you can increase your score and your quality of life.

Why You Should Use Student Loan Consolidation Services

By William Blake

The odds are against most college students when it comes to student loan debt. That is because the grand majority of them will have incurred quite a bit of debt due to borrowing money to pay for education related expenses. Even though some of the student loans that individuals use to borrow money are part of government or bank programs that offer great interest rates, other student loans are probably quite different.

Or maybe you just have a series of student loans and each loan is assigned its own payment with its own payment schedule and after a while you start to find your head spinning from all of the dates and amounts that you will have to try and remember and attend to when it is time to pay your bills. If you find yourself in either of these situations, or any situation that is similar to one of these, then you would definitely benefit from student loan consolidation services.

Although there are many, the biggest reason why people who have lots of student loan debts use student loan consolidation services is because they need to make their payments smaller and life easier.

On the one hand you can look at student loan consolidation services to give you a uniform interest rate and save yourself some money on repaying your loans. In some cases you may had to take out student loans that offered very high interest rates and now that you have graduated and began your first job in the real world you can use student loan consolidation services to help get your college debt under control and get your new life started off on the right foot.

A student loan carrying a 20% interest rate can be a huge cloud over your head when you are just starting out so give yourself a chance and get some student loan consolidation services.

That's A Lot Of Loans

Many students finish their college career with a series of student loans left to pay off. If you have several student loans then the thought of trying to juggle all of those due dates and payments can be intimidating.

Institutions that offer student loan consolidation services will let you take all of your current student loans and consolidate them to just one monthly payment with one flat interest rate. If that interest rate is lower than what you currently pay, you will save money each month on payments, too.

How to Get the Lowest Rates on American Auto Insurance

By Thomas Kielez

In the United States their are many different auto insurance providers and providers may even have different policies or coverage levels so you can save a lot of money by comparing different companies and different policies. To get information from different auto insurance providers you can usually reach them by phone or on the internet. You can also find valuable information about different companies at the Insurance Department at your State capital.

As in other countries, American auto insurance has been developed to protect drivers from a financial loss or liability if they are involved in an accident. Coverage is also available to cover the loss of a car from theft. The first thing to focus on when comparing different insurance providers is their financial stability. You don't want to count on a company that has a poor financial rating. There are several sources of financial information on insurance companies. Standard & Poor's and A.M. Best are two of the more well know insurance ratings companies.

Some insurance companies sell policies through independent insurance agents. These independent agents represent several different companies and can provide a lot of good information about multiple providers. Other companies have their own branches throughout the country that are manned by their employees. While others simply market their policies on line or over the phone exclusively.

Besides price, you will also want to consider other factors. Does the company you are considering offer good service, answer your questions clearly and have a good reputation for satisfying claims. You may be able to get information about specific companies by checking with the State Insurance Department. It can also be helpful to ask friends and neighbors about their experience with different companies and get referrals for the companies they liked the best.

When it comes to getting the best rates on your auto insurance policy, raising the deductible is one of the first considerations. A deductible, which is the amount that you would pay out of pocket if you were in an accident, reduces the risk to the insurance company of having to pay a claim for a small accident. The higher the deductible you are willing to pay out of pocket, the lower your insurance rates. You do have to pay this out of pocket though, so you would want to make sure you have access to an amount equal to your deductible.

Another way to save on car insurance is by dropping collision and comprehensive coverage on older vehicles that are paid off. A good rule of thumb is that if the vehicle is worth less than 10 times the premium you should consider dropping full coverage and switch to a more limited policy.

If you already have some other type of insurance you may want to check with that provider to find out if you can get any kind of discount for also getting your auto insurance through them. This may not always be the best deal but it is something you should check out.

Surprisingly, your credit record also affects the insurance rates you will get. The better your credit scores are the lower your rates will normally be. That means you have another reason to make sure your bills are paid on time and that you check your credit record occasionally to make sure their are no errors that are lowering your scores.

Some employers and associations may have access to group insurance programs that may provide a savings for you. Check with any groups you are a member of to see if they have a program available.

There are a few more discounts that are worth checking on such as discounts for drivers that have had a policy for many years or people who have gone through a defensive driving course. There are also discounts for young drivers who have good grades or who are at college away from home without a car.

How To Get Guaranteed Payday Loans

By Dave Davis

If you need cash quickly and won't be getting paid for a week or two, there are quite a few options available to you. Many people turn to cash advance or payday loans to get the funds they need. Lenders can often give you the funds you need on the spot and this can save you late fees and other expenses.

If you need to get a payday loan or cash advance, you'll want to check to make sure it's legal in your state. 12 states prohibit lenders from offering this type of loan. These loans are also illegal in Canada. However, some states allow this practice without any problems.

If you live in a state where this type of loan is legal, you should be able to get a loan without any problem. Make sure that you educate yourself well on the terms of the loan because interest rates on payday loans are usually quite high.

Since the finance charges can be pretty hefty, be sure to borrow only what you need and only what you will be able to pay back on your next payday. If you fail to pay back the loan by the due date, usually two weeks from the date the loan was issued, the interest will continue to compound leaving you with a debt that may be near impossible to pay back. You will definitely want to be wise when determining the amount of money to borrow.

Many payday lenders will direct deposit your funds directly in your account and will then withdraw your payment automatically. Other lenders will require you to post date a check to make your payment. You are usually expected to pay the loan back yourself and if you don't, they will cash the check you left.

If your account doesn't have the money in it for the check to cash, then you will face penalties associated with a bounced check from both your bank and the lending source. The best way to avoid any complications is simply to pay the loan back in full and on time.

If you decide to take a cash advance or payday type loan, it will be fairly easy to find. If you're in a state where it's legal, you will find quite a few payday loan stores on any major street. You can also find these loans easily online.
