The company suggests that “bloggers, review sites, and people that have archived pages that are currently not monetised are excellent candidates for Context Links”. To create Context Links you simply embed one piece of code on your pages. You can choose to enable the preview functionality to let your site visitors see a preview of an Amazon.co.uk product relevant to the phrase selected. Clicking on the link will send your site visitors to the product detail page on Amazon.co.uk, and you will earn referral fees for any sales generated.Amazon describe the second new tool, Product Previews, as “a portal into Amazon.co.uk – directly on your Web site”.When a user hovers over a preview-enhanced text or image link, a small window appears containing information about the product you’re advertising, including an image, new and used price, average customer review and availability. These links give site visitors more information about the Amazon product but without taking up space on your site. One particularly useful element of Product Previews is that it gives your visitors the ability to add the item directly to their shopping cart, keeping visitors on your site until they are ready to buy.UK Fundraising is testing these two tools across the site so you should start to spot them as you explore the site.The pop-ups only work if you have Javascript enabled and have disabled any pop-up blockers you might use. Here is an example using a text link but you could use a graphic link too:Here’s a book linkIf you haven’t started earning income from your website as an Amazon Associate, you can sign up at no charge. Amazon.co.uk now pays commission monthly in arrears directly into the nominated bank account. Howard Lake | 6 June 2007 | News Amazon Associates, the online bookseller’s affiliate programme for web publishers, has added two new tools to help associates generate more income from their websites. Context Links and Product Previews offer simple ways of adding relevant items for sale on associates’ websites and a pop-up preview of the item available.Charities that use the Amazon Associates service to earn income by selling books, CDs, and other items on their website now have two more tools to generate more income using the free system.Context Links will automatically identify and link relevant phrases within your web pages to Amazon products. You no longer need to spend time creating links manually, and this of course expands the inventory of items you can earn income from. It takes just minutes to add the links into your pages, and Amazon offers a range of options to customise how they are displayed.

Match funding encourages higher & more frequent giving, says report

first_img Melanie May | 15 August 2016 | News Deterministic match funds (in which donations are guaranteed to be matched) see the highest participation levels, but require substantial initial investment in terms of match funding. Match funding stimulates higher and more frequent giving, according to a report from Localgiving into how financial incentives encourage donations.Striking a Match: Incentivised Giving Report 2016 reveals the key results and learnings from a number of match fund campaigns run by Localgiving throughout 2015 as part of its Incentivised Giving Programme, which in 2015 raised £834,224 for 1,288 groups from 16,561 donors.Localgiving ran six match fund campaigns featuring a range of different incentives to encourage donations. These included 1:1 match funding, ‘randomised’ match funding (in which donations had a chance of being matched) and fundraiser competitions.The findings show that different incentives – ranging from match funding to competition prizes – can be used to engage supporters in charitable causes, as well as stimulate higher, more frequent donations.Using donation data and donor feedback, Striking a Match: Incentivised Giving Report 2016 looks at the impact of each campaign on the overall amount raised; charity and donor participation rates; donation size and frequency; donor sentiment and retention.Key findings:The vast majority of donor survey respondents see campaign incentives as a crucial factor in their decision to donate. In the February 2015 #GiveMe5 survey 83.4% of respondents said that match funding had influenced their decision “a lot” or was the “only reason” that they had donated.

This report compares and contrasts the six Incentivised Giving Campaigns we ran in 2015 – not only proving conclusively that match funding works as a concept, but also showing how different incentives can be used to achieve different outcomes.”The findings will be used to inform Localgiving’s future initiatives.  268 total views,  1 views today Advertisementcenter_img Tagged with: match funding Research / statistics About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

A higher court upheld the sentence on appeal on 4 February. The IPYS called for special protection of Pastor on 18 February, saying he was “shut up in his home, depressed and exposed to possible reprisals.”Pastor is the second journalist to receive a heavy sentence for defamation since the start of the year, following Julio Jara Ladrón de Guevara, the editor of the Cuzco-based daily El Comercio, who received a one-year suspended prison sentence on 19 January.last_img read more

Housing Markets Most Impacted by COVID-19

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Previous: Biden Issues Executive Order on Foreclosures; HUD Updates DACA Regulations Next: Kraninger Resigns as CFPB Director Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago January 21, 2021 1,146 Views Though the housing market seems to have escaped many of the economic effects of the pandemic, certain areas are feeling more pain than others.Western regions appear less likely to suffer COVID-related economic ruin than pockets of the Northeast and  East Coast regions, which analysts assessed were more vulnerable during the fourth quarter of the year, according to AATOM Data Solutions, a provider of property-related data and analysis. Its report showed clusters in New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. also are at greater risk during Q4.ATTOM on Thursday released its fourth-quarter 2020 Special Report “spotlighting county-level housing markets around the United States that are more or less vulnerable to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic,” the company announced.Markets are considered more or less “at risk,” AATOM representatives say, “based on the percentage of homes currently facing possible foreclosure, the portion of homes with mortgage balances that exceed the estimated property value, and the percentage of local wages required to pay for major home ownership expenses.”The report reveals that New Jersey, Illinois, California, Louisiana, New York, Florida, and Maryland had 40 of the 50 counties most vulnerable to the economic impact of the pandemic in Q4 2020.Five of the seven western counties in the top 50 were in northern California, while Illinois had eight of the nine midwestern counties among those most vulnerable. Outside of Florida and Maryland, the only southern state with more than two counties in the top 50 was Louisiana.Q4 trends generally were similar to third-quarter results, but with different concentrations around several major metropolitan areas.”The number of counties among the top 50 most at-risk was up from five to eight in the New York, NY, area and from three to six in the Chicago, IL, area, but down from four to two in the Washington, D.C., region and from four to one in the Baltimore, MD area,” according to the report.Researchers note that their findings come as the national housing market continues to withstand the effect of the virus pandemic while also remaining vulnerable to a fall. Home prices shot up by more than 10% in 2020 in about three quarters of the country, even as the overall economy suffered. They say the housing market boom faces “major questions connected to how long the pandemic will last.””Areas of the U.S. most at risk from damage connected to the Coronavirus pandemic spread out somewhat in the fourth quarter of 2020. But they still fell mainly along the East Coast, with significant pockets in certain areas, while other parts of the country seem to be less vulnerable,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer with ATTOM Data Solutions. “This report is not a sign that any area actually took a fall in the fourth quarter. It’s more a gauge of areas that may be more vulnerable if the market falters. In the coming months, much will depend on whether the country can halt the pandemic. We will continue to keep a close watch on home sales and prices to see how everything shakes out in 2021 and if changes hit different regions in different ways.”The report highlights the attributes of the most at-risk regions, noting that those areas have higher levels of unaffordable housing, underwater mortgages, and foreclosure activity. The opposite is true for those at least risk.Major homeownership costs (mortgage payments, property taxes, and insurance) consumed more than 30% of average local wages in 36 of the 50 counties that were most vulnerable to market problems connected to the virus pandemic in the fourth quarter of 2020.At least 15% of mortgages were underwater in the third quarter of 2020 (the latest data available on owners owing more than their properties are worth) in 33 of the 50 most at-risk counties.More than one in 2,500 residential properties faced a foreclosure action in Q3 of 2020 (the latest available data) in 29 of the 50 most at-risk counties. Nationwide, one in 5,048 homes were in that position. (Foreclosure actions dropped about 80% last year amid a federal moratorium on banks taking back properties from homeowners behind on their mortgages during the virus pandemic.)The entire report with regional breakdowns and methodology is available on ATTOM.com.  Print This Post Share Save Housing Markets Most Impacted by COVID-19 2021-01-21 Christina Hughes Babb The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan directed the Delhi Government to file its reply within 4 weeks. The order has come in a PIL filed by Mr Vikram Gahlaut challenging the validity of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act as being ultra vires of the Constitution. The Petitioner had also sought for the removal of Zafarul Islam Khan from the position of the Chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act. In the previous order dated 21/05/20, the court had directed the Delhi Government to conclude the process under Section 4(4)(f) of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act against Zafarul Islam Khan in accordance with law in two weeks. The Division Bench of Justice Manmohan and Justice Sanjeev Narula had further issued fresh notices to the Delhi Minorities Commission, the Delhi Government, and Mr Zafarul Islam Khan himself. Today, the Petitioner informed the court that despite the previous order of this court, no decision has been taken by the Delhi Government on the prayers moved in the petition. Replying to this submission, the Delhi Government informed the court that the reply has been received from Zafarul Islam Khan and now the file is pending before the Law Ministry. Delhi Government further informed the court that the concerned Ministry is currently understaffed due to the COVID19 measures, and hence more time would be required to file the reply. The court will now take up the matter on July 30. Next Storylast_img read more
