Dave Cottrell is the owner & CEO of ClassifiedAdLand.com & BestRateDigital.com. He has recently finished a short term contract as the affiliate manager for Adlandpro.com, an Internet success story created by visionary Canadian, Bogdan Fiedur in 1998. Dave was tasked with auditing the entire site, taking feedback from members and affiliates, creating mockups of future webpages, rewriting training material and providing a full report with recommendations to the owner. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and is looking forward to seeing the results as Bogdan and his team of programmers go to work. Dave Cottrell lives in Gibsons, BC. He is married with four adult children & five grandchildren. He is an outdoorsman and has a passion for photography, especially in the outdoors. His greatest priority is being the pastor of Sunshine Community Baptist Church, a small, Independent Baptist church started about fifteen years ago. Being involved in online marketing has helped him to do this. Dave & his wife, married in 1978, were introduced to their first experience in network marketing shortly after they were married. He was the one in the group who was very quickly recruited to present the business plan. Many things have changed since 1978. New rules to protect those who get caught up in illegal pyramid & pump-and-dump schemes were legislated, & regulations were tightened up. However, a quantum leap in communication, via the Internet, has been the biggest change. Social media is THE communication platform of the 21st century. Dave was strongly influenced to get involved in social media by Adlandpro

American English

American English – what does it matter?

American English is a term that is somewhat tinted with irony. It is descended from and almost identical to Canadian English, which is pretty much identical to British English, apart from the way it sounds and some of the more interesting idioms. Yet the United States is a country, while descended from British immigrants in British colonies that fought a major war to throw off the rule of England when it fought for independence over two hundred years ago.
