This post brought to you by infofree. All opinions are 100% mine.


With today’s technology research is much more interesting and much easier to conduct.   It makes things done in a flash and updating it will just need a little swish of a finger.   Businesses rely mostly on the data that they get from researches.  The higher the number indicated on the chart the better stability it will get. is a website that provides database and sales leads company to help sales people and small business owners in achieving their goal and eventually their success.  The team behind has over 30 years of professional experience in building different databases and creating sales leads, so basically they are the company to ask when it comes to this subject matter.

Infofree experience.   Given a chance to explore infofree, I was able to use their database and was able to search some good list of easy sales leads that I can use in my future business/company if I were able to have one.  For now the said website offers information that is within the US.  I’m not sure yet when will they provide a little expansion of their services. 

Here are some of the services that they can offer or what they call a blogger special which is $39.95 in a month.  So, what can you get for that amount?  Well, here are the following …

  • Over 50 Databases to choose from
  • Unlimited search, select, view and download of Sales Leads
  • Unlimited business Credit Profiles
  • Unlimited view and print of Emails
  • See prospects on a map
  • People turning 65
  • Recent Bankruptcy Filers

So, if you have a small business running already it is really important to know your market, the range of your market, and perhaps the location as well.  With these, small business owners can already read if they can expand their business or change their location in order to be more productive and competitive or even predict their potential revenue.   Like I said business is a number game!

So for a start if you own a small business here’s your chance to get some of that database information.   I’ll be extending their offer for bloggers, use the code BLOG39 when signing up so you could avail the services for only $39.95.

The Philippine Internet Congress and Expo

ads here too

For this quarter, a landmark event in the Philippines will be held this coming March 9 – 11, 2012 at SM Megamall Megatrade Hall. It is The Philippine Internet Congress and Expo, this will highlight the latest trends and updates in the internet. This event will not only showcase what’s the newest in the market but will also give emphasis on breakthrough ideas and insights of renowned personalities and industry leaders. This will be an immense opportunity to get invaluable ideas and practical advice from the best speakers and industry leaders, take home effective tools and latest resources, and to get up to speed on state-of-the-art online technology.

Though most of the topics are really intriguing and fascinating there is one topic that I would really want to attend to if I’ll be given a chance to sit in the Philippine Internet Congress. That topic would be “Protecting Your Business: What You Should Know About Hacking”. I know, for some of the readers they have already heard about it and even learned something about it but for me and perhaps for those who are not familiar with this kind of attack on different online businesses this is something that should not be taken lightly. Perhaps this topic will be of great help not only to people with online businesses but also to those who consider their online presence as a business.

Other topics that I would enjoy listening to is the “The Facebook Generation: The Impact of Social Media in Global Transformation” and the “From Entrepreneur to Technopreneur: Creating Revenue Streams From Your Site”. These are some of the topics that appeals interesting to me. Not really much sure of who are the speakers of these topics but I’ll definitely let my ears stuck with them when they started talking.

I already know some of the speakers and I have already heard some of them share their thoughts in some of the talks I have attended with, since Hans Montenegro is a celebrity I would like to know what are his insights and ideas.

If you’re anxious to hear these speakers talk about the different topics in The Philippine Internet Congress and Expo with a theme of “Getting Up to Speed on World Class Technology” better get your hands moving and sign up now. You can simply get the details and online registration on the following websites and or you may contact Kaye or Randolf at 470-1055, 470-1057 or 0905-3364486 to reserve a seat in the conference.
