The Definitive Guide to Digital Advertising

How digital advertising can benefit you

Today, digital advertising expands beyond banner ads with basic targeting. It’s now possible to zero in on prospects based on specific demographics, intent, their stage in the sales funnel, and engagement patterns. These insights can then be used across display, search engine marketing (SEM) and search engine optimization (SEO), social media, native ads, pay-per-click,retargeting, affiliate, mobile marketing, and more.

Digital advertising has created a world in which you can—and must—develop a holistic plan to find and engage with your next customer, then keep in touch with them until they’re ready to buy. In 2019, eMarketer projects that U.S. advertisers will spend 54.2% of their ad budgets on digital ads, and by 2023 that figure will reach 66.8%. That’s a lot of competition, so you need to know how to make your media spend count.

The good news is that once you take the plunge

Be in Tune with Spiritual Promptings

Nephi promises in 2 Nephi 32:5, “If ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do.” Righteously using your agency under the direction of the Holy Ghost will be your best means for doing good while using technology, and it will be your best protection against evil.

The apps provided on your mobile device have filters designed to protect you from inappropriate content. However, even the strongest filters cannot protect you 100 percent of the time. The best filter you have is your own will and desire to make righteous choices. Elder David F. Evans stated: “The only really effective filter for lifelong technology use is

Be Focused on Your Missionary Purpose

The Lord has said, “And if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things” (Doctrine and Covenants 88:67). To have your eye single to the glory of God means to have your focus completely on God’s purpose—which is also your purpose as a missionary.

Everything you do—including how you use technology—should be centered on your purpose, which is to “invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy

The SnowCloud – SnowCloud Services, LLC.

Over the last few years, Snow Cloud Services created a wireless backbone from the valley to downtown Juneau to provide back up and off-site storage services to existing clients. We saw a need for people living aboard boats in the harbors to get easy internet access. Current providers were either not providing service or didn’t have the capability. We realized we could use our existing infrastructure to provide those people with internet access. The Snow Cloud was born. As we brought more and more users on to the system we realized we didn’t have to stop with just the harbors, we could reach houses and businesses in the downtown and Douglas areas. Our network grew from there and is still growing.

 We feel our unique blend of cutting-edge technology, know-how and high priority to customer service will set us apart from the competition. Our current customers enjoy our service and

Web Services Using C# – Creating Web Services


Open Visual Studio > File > New > Web Site…


Step 2

Create “ASP.Net Empty Web Site” (name it“MyWebService”) and save at the desired location.



Right-click on Project folder in Solution Explorer on the right side > Add > New Item. 

Step 4

Select your language (C# in my case) > Web Service (ASMX) > Add. Now, name it (for example MyWebService.asmx).


Explanation of the default code


[WebService(Namespace = “http://tempuri.org/”)]

Each XML Web service needs a unique namespace in order for client applications to distinguish it from other services on the web.

tempuri.org is the test default namespace URI. It is available for XML Web services that are under development, but published XML Web services should use a more permanent namespace. The term is strictly a placeholder and all instances of it should be replaced with a more meaningful URI in production systems.

Web Services vs Web Applications

Web Service

W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) describes web service as a system of software allowing different machines to interact with each other through network. Web services achieve this task with the help of XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI open standards.

XML:  The full form of XML is ‘Extensible Markup Language’ which is used to share data on the web and in universal format.

SOAP: Standing for ‘Simple Object Access Protocol’ which is an application communication protocol that sends and receives messages through XML format. It is one of the best ways to communicate between applications over HTTP which is supported by all browsers and servers.

WSDL: Written in XML, WSDL stands for Web Services Description Language and is used to describe web service. WSDL comprises three parts such as Definitions (usually expressed in XML including both data type definitions), Operations and Service bindings. Operations denote actions
