us are still recovering from the excitement of the Word Cup soccer games
and the fantastic performance of our team. We tend to keep that good
feeling of being part of something positive alive and to nourish it.
However, as time goes by, it becomes more difficult to maintain the same
level of excitement as the day our team beat the American team. Over
time the excitement may fade away, but the memories of that day will always
remain with us. Once more the staff of Iran Online, Manou & Associates
Inc and Virtual Factor LLC. praise the effort of all the members of the
Iranian soccer team and congratulate all Iranians who supported our team.
We have noticed that Iran Online Forum visitors are spending more time, browsing through various sections of Iran Online. Their interests seem to be more evenly divided among the different sections. We are not clear what the contributing factors to this change are. However, we suspect the combination of the following has something to do with it.
Virtual Factor LLC was
established by the founders of Manou & Associates Inc. and few other
individuals for the sole purpose of offering specific set of services to
the Iranian Internet community. These services are presented as an
integral part of Iran online Forum. Free Persian web-based email
service at www.IROL.net is the first service offered by Virtual Factor
LLC. Many of Iranians have already taken advantage of this
free service and have received their Free email account (YourName@IROL.net)
and have their name listed in the Iran online White Pages. If you
have not signed up for your Free email account, we invite you to do so
Iran Online Yellow Pages at www.IranianYellowPages.com
is probably the oldest Iranian business directory on the Internet.
This site has been completely redesigned. The new site has been designed
as an integral part of Iran Online. The new site offers many new
features. Businesses can be listed in this directory by filling out
an online form that is provided for this purpose. The business owner
can select a password as part of this process which will allow him / her
to go back at a later time and change the listed information. For
each listed business, we will create a unique homepage and have it registered
in the various Internet search engines. All of these are part
of our basic business-listing package that is offered for FREE.
We invite you to visit this site and take advantage of its services.
Additionally, we ask you to encourage the Iranian businesses in your area
to join this directory.
Over the last three years, many of you have added your email addresses to our mailing list. It has been our policy to restrain ourselves from sending out email about trivial matters. At the same time, we feel that we need to inform our visitors and others about some of the new developments and enhancements at Iran Online Forum. That is why we have started an email campaign to inform our visitors about our ongoing developments. This activity will continue for the next few weeks at which time, we will evaluate its result.
We have always felt the need for an all encompassing Iranian Internet site that offers an interactive environment to all Iranians. Most of the existing Iranian Internet sites are static and offer a specific set of information. Iran Online Forum goals are to surpass that and to offer services that go beyond ones interest. We feel Iranians need to have a solid presence on the Internet where they can receive the latest services that World Wide Web can offer. The following are some of the services that are only offered by Iran Online as part of one integrated package.
1- Classified advertising
The above services are all offered
FREE of charge to the Iran Online Forum visitors. We feel these are
the type of services that our Internet community needs. Additionally,
Iran Online Forum offers one of the largest online depositories of information
about Iran, Iranian art and literature. We believe there is a lot
more to be done to further strengthen the means for bringing the Iranian
Internet community closer together. We ask you to help us promote
these services among the Iranian community and let them know Iran Online
Forum offers a world class service to its visitors and clients.
