FAQ

Is there software that allows a customer to fill out an online form and receive a large file?
There are a couple of ways to achieve this:1. Create a form using an online form builder like EmailmeForm.2. Give your users access to the document via 3 ways:- Redirect them to the download link url upon completing the form (fastest approach)- Insert the file download link in the form’s Success Message- Automatically send a confirmation email with the document link to users who have successfully completed your form.Whichever of these 3 methods you use, you are still sure that you only give the link the people who have completely answered your form.As for your document, you can just upload it on Google Drive or Dropbox and get the shareable url.Disclaimer: I work for EmailMeForm
I'm doing an online feedback survey with customers in Ontario and would like to offer a $50 gift card to one of the customers who fill it out. Do I need to register this contest with the government?
No you do not, that is only necessary in Quebec. You do have to make sure your contest complies with the requirements for promotional contests in Canada so that you are not violating the Criminal Code or the Competition Act but there is no requirement to register the contest (and no agency to register it with).
Is there a free online tool that generates a tracking number every time a customers fills out a Google form?
There are various plugins which can be added to the form so as to show the number of forms filled. Even you can check the number of Entries in spreadsheet linked with it. There is an option to have the data analysis of the forms in the form settings pop-up window( see summary charts …)

So, will the AMC(annual Maintenance charges).Profit are subjected to currency exchange rate - Price of INR against USD will constantly change, so suppose you invested when it was 1$=₹68 , so when you sell the stock maybe the price changes to 1$=₹60. In such case you already lost 11.7%. That’s why when you invest in foreign stocks, profits are always subjected to the currency exchange rate.To know more about such topics please visit, Blog - Trade Brainsor Join Pundits of Stock market at Indian Stock Market Tribe- TRADE BRAINS.
Can a niche drop-ship site be profitable? If so, what are some specific examples, and how to they genereate revenue?
I would venture to guess that not many people are going to give up their exact numbers from a analytics screen shot or paypal monthly history report, myself included, at the expense of validating people's online opinions into their business. The extent of that poster's answers give very good credibility into what he's doing, it all sounds exactly right.I will say that yes, it is definitely possible to create that type of income through niche sites, the business model is identical across any industry, easy to replicate. I've done it through automotive, and i'm currently building another site in the related automotive space grossing 30k/mo after 6 months, and that's working very part time on the side.Autoanything.com is a site that started heavily, and still does, a ton of drop-shipping. They're the 800lb gorilla in the automotive market, taking out 5-10 pages of print advertising in the major print publications every month, and dominating the attention of many manufacturers that i deal with directly, so not only am i competing against them online, but also behind the scenes for product availability.EDIT NOV.2013 - Autoanything.com just got purchased by Auto Zone, undisclosed price. Autoanything had sales of $111 million in 2011.Hardwaresalesinc.com was doing dropship for a long time, but i've lost touch with my contact there, so i dont know how they're doing recently. There's countless examples, and they all have an advantage over amazon.com for the time being, specialization and knowledge. Their customer support regarding the parts exceeds anything that amazon would be able to provide, so it comes down to trust. And sometimes, Amazon just isn't known for certain things beyond their low prices, you aren't going to go to Amazon to buy CNC machining tools, or wheels for your car, or small hardware (though, amazon just bought a company, transforming it to amazonsupply.com that does just that).Also, the great stores now are generating content that drives traffic, and their advertising is much more focused than what Amazon does. Amazon may be the online Walmart, but would you go to Walmart if you needed help and guidance regarding a DIY project at home, or would you go to Home Depot / Lowes and talk to their experts? Some of us would get the knowledge in one place, and buy the parts on Amazon for maximum time/money savings, but a very small percentage of buyers are that educated.
How long does it take to walk into a gun store and come out with a semi-automatic, if I have a clean record in America?
It depends on the state, and I’m not an expert - but I wanted to share my personal experience for a couple reasons.It may surprise some people - especially non-gun ownersI feel it illustrates that gun control and gun laws are two different things and before jumping to the conclusion that we need more (or fewer) laws pertaining to guns, everyone should take a few minutes to educate themselves and use common sense (gasp)This is my first time gun buying experience from about 4–5 years ago.I’d done quite a bit of research online, pretty much settled on what I wanted and decided it was time to walk into a gun store to look and make the final decision in person. After about 15 minutes I’d settled on a gen 4 Glock 19. The store was running a special on the gen 4s and I received a free box of ammunition, as well as an extra magazine. Awesome.Next up it was time to go through the background check and pay. I had to wait, because there was an older guy and his son in front of me. He was purchasing the gun for his son (because he wasn’t 21) - apparently his son was joining a junior police academy and needed a handgun. Well, his background check came back - he had some kind of domestic abuse charge - no gun for you, no gun for your son. The owner of the gun shop chastised him for even wasting her time since he clearly knew that was on his record.My turn. They ran my details, everything came back clean and it was time to pay. Something people may not realize is that guns aren’t cheap. Mine was close to $500. That’s a decent chunk of change and puts them out of many people’s reach economically. Of course, I’d imagine criminals acquire weapons for much less - but then again they don’t go through the proper channels.Great, background check cleared, I’ve paid and ready to go. The guy behind the counter bags things up and hands it to me - then the owner starts berating him. Apparently by putting the newly purchased gun (still in the case) and the box of ammunition, into the same bag they were setting me up to get a felony when I walked out of the store. They also gave me specific instructions about putting the gun and/or ammo in the trunk of my car - NOT the passenger compartment. Again, throwing the now two separate shopping bags into my back seat would have potentially been criminal (felony).This is where things get crazy. In Ohio, you can load up a gun - put it in a holster (on the outside of your clothes) and walk around in most public places. But, as soon as you cover up the gun - or get into a car with it - you’re breaking the law (felony) unless you’ve gotten a special license/permit. This requires more background checks, fingerprinting, attending a class, paying more money, etc.Now, let’s say you’re all about following the letter of the law and you go through all of these steps so that you can carry your gun in your car. Things don’t get easier - because each state can be different. Despite having a permit, passing the background checks, etc - if you happen to drive into Chicago you could be in a lot of trouble. Apparently, you can drive right through with no problems, but if you step foot outside of your car (even to get gas, even if you leave the gun in the car) you’re now in a world of trouble (felony). It makes you wonder why Chicago has so much gun violence when the gun laws there are so strict.The laws are very strict for gun owners, they can be very confusing, and it seems, by definition, only followed by law abiding citizens.
