Three SEO Strategies That High Ranking Websites Always Follow

Great people do not do different things. They do the same things differently. Well, this phrase is equally applicable to create websites as well. The basics of search engine optimization and social media integration are the same for everybody. The attitude and approach adopted by the webmasters makes all the difference. Let us look at some important differences between popular websites and those websites that fail to make an impression on search engines.

Always Changing, Improving And Evolving

Search engine optimization is a frustrating task primarily because it is always changing. In the beginning, stuffing the webpage with keywords was enough to improve your rankings. Then, Google started penalizing keyword spam and created the distinction between White Hat and other SEO techniques. The latest update by Google penalizes poor quality content. Judging the quality of content of your site through an algorithm may sound impossible. However, Google is making use of algorithms to weed out those websites that offer rehashed content without offering anything new.

Great sites never relax as far as search engine opposition is concerned. They never conclude that they have identified the golden formula and that they need not bother about SEO ever again. They are eager to identify newer solutions and want to find out how such solutions can help them improve rankings. If you want a one-time ticket to online popularity, then you will have to face many disappointing failures. Remaining popular on the Internet requires constant adaptation.

Search Engines Are Secondary. People Come First

This may sound sacrilegious to some SEO experts. To cater to people without bothering about search engines can lead to disastrous consequences. What is the point of setting up a website with high quality content if surfers cannot find it? Well, great websites believe that it is impossible to suppress good content online. If your content is good, then you will automatically become popular even if you are not focusing on search engine optimization.

Of course, this does not mean you should completely ignore optimization. However, your readers and viewers should be preferred over stats about your traffic. Keep your readers happy and they will spread word about your website without being asked to do so. Getting 100,000 web surfers to talk about your website is a lot simpler if you simply provide high-quality content.

Instead of spending a lot of money on expensive SEO strategists, you can adopt this simple approach and extract more value out of your investment.

Never Be In A Hurry For Results

Despite the release of panda and penguin updates by Google, it is possible to manipulate search engines and improve your rankings. However, such a short-term approach is only going to lead to complications. For starters, you can never be certain that your popularity is sustainable. If you focus on the long-term, then you will automatically make use of White Hat SEO techniques that focus on adding value at all times.

Make sure you follow these strategies. The best option is to employ an SEO expert who understands the importance of such an approach. This will help you focus on offering better quality products and services to your customers without worrying about the popularity of your website.

How To Make Money With A Paid Online Auction

Selling your “junk” to someone who considers it “gold” can benefit a buyer who has something they are in need of, and a seller who has more money in his pocket as a result of the transaction.

That’s why using an online auction is something both buyers and sellers can benefit from. The Internet is an invaluable tool in today’s world for both personal and professional interactions. Online auctions takes it to the next level by creating an online marketplace. Everything from a computer auction to a book auction can be found.

While some online auction sites are free, there are advantages to using a paid online auction site. While getting something for free is always nice, as the saying goes – is anything really free?

That’s why putting money upfront in the form of a membership cost or paying a percentage on items sold is probably not such a bad thing when using a paid online auction. Consider these advantages:

* An auction site like EBay offers integration with Auctiva which can often provide unlimited space for photographs and descriptions of items, thus increasing the chances of selling your products.

* Using a paid site is also wise because most large online auction sites offer dispute resolution and other services to keep both sellers and buyers happy (kind of like an online manager for complaints).

* Sites like EBay and Amazon auctions are ones with a reputation for good business; or at least they want to have a good name if they hope to stay in operation.

These sites want to do everything possible to keep sellers happy because eBay is a known name for online auctions and the first thought of many considering an online purchase. They also want to keep buyers happy so they will continue to purchase on EBay, therefore resulting in sellers continuing to do business.

The term is known as good business. It’s also called good public relations and is essential for these sites to flourish.

But why even use an online auction in the first place? As noted earlier, a paid online auction brings people together via the Internet in an online marketplace. But while both parties would typically be in the same location, sites like EBay may involve parties thousands of miles apart. Someone in Birmingham, Alabama, might find themselves buying a computer from a seller in Birmingham, England.

Also, unlike a traditional marketplace where selection of items is limited, an online auction may include everything from a Mickey Mouse watch or life-saving medical equipment, to coffee cakes and automobiles. You can even do an electronic book auction online.

From the perspective of a seller, a paid online auction not only helps them with supplemental or full income, but is also be a means of getting rid of items they are no longer using. In fact, they might find it to be a perfect business home income online opportunity. From the buyer’s standpoint, it helps in not having to search to the ends of the earth for items they need and from being frustrated by not finding the perfect gift for someone.

Working with an auction site online guarantees a seller’s customer base is no longer limited only to customers across town. For buyers it is the end of fumbling through a phone book or driving around to find what they need. Instead, a paid auction site can help guarantee both sellers and buyers are happy with only the click of a mouse.

High Cost of Healthcare Induced By Contradictory Goals of Providers and Payers

Healthcare has been the topic of debate for most of the last few years. From the boardroom to the water cooler, costs and quality of care are hot topics that impact everyone in this country. Young and old, Americans are feeling the squeeze and most are finding it difficult to come up with solutions. In the boardrooms of corporations both large and small, employers are struggling to cope with reality of rising premiums and declining benefits. Meanwhile employees are left with the prospect of going without health insurance. Currently it is estimated that 50 to 60 million adults in this country are walking the tightrope of living without health insurance. With such widespread reach for ripples created by this healthcare debacle, everyone is looking for answers. How can we afford coverage? Can we go without? What can be done to curb the costs and get this problem under control?

In the workplace, employers and employees often feel as if they’re on opposite sides of the fence. Employers feel as if their subordinates take no consideration of how difficult it can be to turn a profit while facing spiraling costs and a difficult economic environment. While large corporations may be able to ride out the storm, small businesses rarely have this luxury (especially at a time when credit is difficult to obtain). Most small businesses would close their doors if the balance sheet goes in the red for more than a few months or quarters. On the other hand, employees often adopt a near-sighted approach. How could they expect me to afford a premium increase? Should I just try to float without insurance for a while? These questions often lead to resentment on both sides of the coin, but are the employers or employees to take the blame and the higher cost?

Looking for answers to this growing problem is not easy. Where did the system go wrong? Why is it so expensive? Who’s to blame?

Many people blame healthcare providers for the rising costs of quality care. I can assure you this is not the case. Providers are facing a myriad of challenges and roadblocks. More so than ever, running a profitable medical practice is daunting task. Like any other business, a medical practice will close if it can not cover expenses and afford to pay salaries. Labor and leasing expenses are only the tip of the iceberg. Practitioners are forced to pay for equipment, insurance, hardware, software, licensing, and more. After establishing an office with all the appropriate resources, medical practices and hospitals must then attract patients in a very competitive marketplace.

Yet with all these costs and challenges in their way, healthcare providers are not complaining about patients or labor or costs! The largest problem facing healthcare providers is the insurance reimbursement process. Contradictory goals of payers and providers are resulting in inefficient and difficult payment systems. Insurance companies are more concerned with bottom-line profits and shareholders than they are about the care their members receive. How can we expect doctors and healthcare providers to keep their offices open if they can hardly get paid for the services they perform? Individuals believe that because they pay premiums, the insurance company will pay their doctor. Unfortunately, this is hardly the case. Health insurance claim denial rates can reach as high as 25% or more. Many providers have outstanding receivables measured in the millions of dollars. The insurance reimbursement process is so arduous that many medical practices never get paid and as a result close their doors forever.

Insurance companies use a wide variety of tactics to delay payments and deny claims. Payers employ hoards of representatives charged with the task of fielding calls and scrutinizing claims. Due to these tactics, insurance claims take anywhere from 30 days to more than 1 year to reach a completed status. In most cases claims are delayed and denied due to inconsequential, irrelevant errors. These errors result solely from the many difficult and senseless hoops that are placed in the way of the provider’s billing representatives. This extremely labor intensive process of collecting from insurance companies costs providers a great deal of time and money.

The only beneficiaries of this process are the shareholders of insurance companies. The delays in payments result in interest earned for the time period in which the claim was delayed. In many cases, providers never receive reimbursement for the services they perform. These claims must be written-off as a loss by providers while insurance companies see these cases as victories leaving more cash on their balance sheets. It appears that the primary goal of insurance companies may be to deny as many claims as possible; after all they answer to shareholders not providers or individual policy holders. This gross abuse of power by insurance companies may be the biggest problem we face in the healthcare sector.

The days when doctors sat on golf courses all day while making millions per year are over. Now they must battle insurance companies tooth and nail for every claim. If insurance companies paid doctors for the services they perform, perhaps we would see a reduction in costs related to providing care.

Surely there is no easy fix to this problem. We may find the answers by addressing the goals of big insurance companies. Providing oversight and incentives for paying healthcare providers for the services they perform would be a good start. If insurance companies focus on weeding out fraud rather than just delaying and denying payments, we could see an increase in efficiency and productivity in the healthcare sector that could be the start of controlling costs while maintaining a high standard of care. For the sake of all Americans, hopefully we find an answer soon!

Kakadu Juice – The World's Most Powerful Antioxidants!

Scientists from Sydney discover a Native Australian Bush Food that is many times more nutrient dense than Goji Berries, contains over 300% the level of antioxidants in Blueberries and is a highly rich ‘Uncategorized’ source of Folic Acid and Iron and this “New Australian Health Product” – “Kadadu Juice” containing Native Bush Foods could make many modern-day nutritional supplements obsolete!

From some of the world’s harshest landscapes ~ comes the world’s most nutritious plant foods like:

Kakadu Plum which holds the World Record for Vitamin C content, Tasmanian Pepper Berry hailed as the World’s Strongest Antioxidant food and a polygodial-rich food plant traditionally used as a bush medicine by indigenous Aboriginals of Australia. illawarra plum A very close rival to the pepper berry for the title of strongest antioxidant. Plus a host of other super potent plant foods like; Blueberries, Quandong, Wild Rosella, Acai, Goji, Mangosteen, Pomegranate, Green Tea, Cherry, Flax, Barley Grass, and Grape Seed.

One major thing that separates Kakadu Juice from many of the competing brands is that it is the first product to release that is not 60% or more plain water. It is the first truly concentrated product with real value for money. Secondly Kakadu Juice contains a unique blend of very powerful native bush foods. Thirdly it is a complete product, not just an antioxidant, or a vitamin product but a rich source of all the major essential nutrients. See [] for more information. Fourthly it is proudly Australian.

Australia’s unique wild plant foods have sustained the world’s longest living culture ~ the Australian Aborigines for thousands of years. The health benefits of these fruits, herbs and spices are gaining global attention as emerging research reveals record levels of Uncategorized Vitamins, Antioxidants and Unique Phytonutrients.

Now after many years of research, testing and development, these newly recognised, world-leading Australian food plants are blended with exotic foods from around the world in an exquisite nutrient dense SUPER BEVERAGE known as (see front cover photo) Kakadu Juice.

Can Kakadu Juice make you healthy and wealthy?

Well, consider this quote from the book “The Wellness Revolution – How to Make a Fortune in the Next TRILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY” where author Paul Zane Pilzer says “Teaching consumers about such products and services, intellectual distribution, is the greatest opportunity now and for the foreseeable future”.

The Wellness Revolution is here and Australia is staking its claim with a world-beating functional food beverage that offers a refreshing mix of innovation, integrity and value for money in an industry tired of the ‘hot air’ that seems to keep many direct sales companies afloat. Kakadu International has created a no-hype opportunity for people to stake their own claim in the burgeoning Wellness Industry by offering ordinary people a way to get involved with a great Australian company and learn how to create additional income from drinking and sharing Nature’s tastiest liquid bounty.

Thanks to the work of dedicated people like Dr. Kowalski, Vic Cherikoff and the tireless efforts of those in the CSIRO and other home-grown agencies, awareness of and the subsequent demand for Australian Bush Foods has created a viable industry that is now established and thriving. In similar fashion to the progressive growth of the Organics industry, Australian Bush Foods are now experiencing an organic growth all of their own.

With the emergence of scientific research into the Native Bush Foods, they’ve entered the record books for their nutritional and medicinal potency – something that Wellness industry entrepreneurs have a very healthy interest in. As a pioneer in this emerging sector of the Australian economy, Kakadu International, creators of Kakadu Juice, is proud of the knowledge that every bottle of Kakadu Juice is not only making people healthier but also providing employment for Aboriginal Australians.

The Australian Outback is one of the last pristine wilderness areas of the world. Wild harvesting of bush foods from this region relies on ancient Aboriginal knowledge of healing foods meshed with the modern practical skills of how to transport, process and distribute these foods in a way where nutritional vitality is…vital.

Remember the first vital rule to success in Network Marketing is you must have a very unique and highly consumable product that can not be obtained from anywhere else. Historically the most successful Network Marketers made their fortunes with nutritional products. Unfortunately many of them are overhyped, overpriced supplements that do little more than create expensive urine and some studies indicate do far more harm than good. This results in mass public confusion because one month we read how one thing protects us and a month later we read another study that the same synthetic supplement raises your chances of disease and premature death. Who do you believe and trust? The big pharmaceutical and supplement manufactures or the wisdom of Mother Nature?

The Truth About Supplements

The Dirty Secret Supplement Makers Hope You’ll Never Discover The overwhelming number of supplements on offer can leave many consumers feeling confused and frustrated; not daring enough to venture into the local health shop without first getting a degree in biochemistry! If that’s you, then you’ll be glad to hear the good news which is, there’s really only 2 kinds of supplements to choose from; those that are completely Uncategorized and those that are not.

The hard part is knowing the difference. Since the World became aware of “Uncategorized is better”, supplement companies have done everything in their power to convince you that their product is either “Uncategorized” or is so high-tech that it’s now “better” than Uncategorized. The truth is that the vast majority of nutrition supplements actually don’t contain any real nutrients, instead they’re made from cheap synthetic chemicals. A lot of slick marketing has led the Nature-seeking public to buy chemical products, with questionable results. How did we get it so wrong?

A Brief History of Vitamins

The ancient Egyptians noted that night blindness (vitamin A deficiency) could be cured by adding certain foods to the diet. In 1747 James Lind, a Scottish Naval Surgeon made the connection between a lack of citrus fruit intake and sailors developing scurvy. In 1905, Englishman William Fletcher discovered there were ‘special factors’ Uncategorizedly present in whole food that when processed away, resulted in disease. A few years later a Polish scientist named Funk identified these special factors and called them “vitamins”….or did he? He identified what he thought were the special factors that prevent disease; in fact, these Funky “vitamins” were only single molecules, a small part of the whole. The scientific methods available to Funk were fairly crude, no mass spectrometers, no electron microscopes or particle accelerators; science not sophisticated enough to correctly identify the complete structure of a vitamin.

Your body DOES know the difference Vitamins in Nature do not exist as isolated molecules. A molecule of ascorbic acid is not vitamin C, d-alpha tocopherol is not vitamin E; they’re merely individual pieces of much bigger puzzles. It’s not even just a matter of missing out on some benefits, these nutrients have multiple interacting roles. So, when you use a synthetic instead of the living complexes found in Nature, you upset the metabolic balance. The reason you don’t have to consciously control things like breathing, your heart beating and the digestion of food, is they’re just too complex. To say that a supplement chemist can create the right balance of chemicals to mimic what happens Uncategorizedly in “your” body or any living human is like saying a child who makes a paper plane could just as easily build a space shuttle. A cel
l in a dish doesn’t equal a cell in a living human. To say otherwise is an embarrassment to real science and an insult to Nature.

Value for money!

Imagine paying good money to see the Sydney Symphony Orchestra flawlessly perform a 2-hour piece of powerful classical music. Thousands of you sit, waiting to have your breath taken away by 50 of the World’s finest musicians all playing in perfect harmony but, they don’t show. Instead, a child walks out dressed in a tiny tuxedo and spends the next 2 hours bashing a xylophone with a brick. Not the experience you were hoping for was it? Well, your body feels similar disappointment every time it’s forced to metabolise cheap synthetics instead of the breath-taking perfection offered by Mother Nature’s vitamin source – whole foods.

But I buy mine from Company XYZ…

Is your favourite supplement actually synthetic or mostly full of artificial ingredients? It has a great story behind it, pictures of rain forests on the label, endorsements by doctors, everyone else takes it…must be good, right? Ask anyone who was alive in the 30’s and they’ll tell you that doctors actually used to prescribe cigarettes to their patients. Between 1929 and 1949 doctors believed that “smoking relaxes the nerves, renews energy and soothes throats”. Cigarette companies used doctors to promote the ‘health benefits’ of smoking until 1950 when the facts about lung cancer became undeniable. The medical community pulled away from the tobacco industry and the use of health claims in tobacco advertising was banned in 1951. By learning to read labels and ask questions you see past the advertising hype and avoid the disappointment of buying something synthetic.

How to read a product label

Ask any biochemist and they’ll reveal that levels of vitamins in real food are not constant, they go up and down. Any manufacturer will tell you that it costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars to have exact amounts of a single vitamin tested. So, when you see a label with Vitamin C – 60mg or a list of 20 nutrients each with an exact quantity shown as being the same month after month, either they have money to burn, test every batch and by some freak miracle they’re all identical every time, OR, in reality they are synthetic nutrients, not Uncategorized ones. It kind of takes the fun out of playing the “which one has more in it” game when comparing supplements. Either way it doesn’t matter which has more if one or both contain synthetics.

What happens when you eat chemicals?

When people begin taking multivitamin tablets they may feel some brief benefit. This is your body doing its best to use its reserves of real nutrients to fill in the gaps. Manufacturers know this, it’s why they recommend “take with food”. Once your body runs out of its reserves, isolated nutrients act like drugs, cannot be used the way Uncategorized nutrients are, create more imbalances and like all synthetic chemicals must be removed from the body before toxic damage takes place.

Easier said than done… Take iron for example, an important mineral that you don’t want too much or too little of. Most iron is stored in red blood cells. Women lose blood every month and have much fewer iron toxicity diseases than men do. Inorganic iron from multivitamin tablets or from meat is difficult for your body to eliminate. Furthermore, iron from non-vegetarian sources destroys vitamin E, a nutrient essential for life. When iron comes from plant foods, it does not harm vitamin E and it is joined by ‘real’ vitamin C which improves absorption. It also comes with phytic acid which is not only an antioxidant which prevents that ‘rusting’ effect that excess iron creates in the body, it also helps bind and remove excess iron from the body. It’s an efficient, intelligent, synergistic system when left up to Mother Nature but a complicated, destructive mess if not.

What are multivitamin tablets made from?

Well, you now know how to check the label to find out how artificial the ingredients are, you could also just ask the company who makes them but also consider that those artificial ingredients don’t just Uncategorizedly stick themselves together in the shape of a vitamin tablet. Here’s a partial list of the things they use:

gelatin (from the boiled bones, skins and tendons of animals)

stearic acid (from boiled cow fat)

carnauba wax (car polish)

sodium alginate (chemically processed algae used in the paint & printing industry)

croscarmellose sodium (wood pulp)

What does the Scientific Community say?

As long as they’re not being paid by a company who makes synthetic supplements, they’re going to show you the research which as suspected indicates quite strongly that when its Mother Nature vs. Synthetics, Big Mamma beats Big Pharma every time! In February 2007 The Journal of The American Medical Association (JAMA) published a review of 68 scientific studies involving 232,606 people, which sought to determine the effects of supplementing with antioxidant vitamins and minerals for prevention. Their findings stated: “supplementation significantly raised mortality” (made people die faster). Headlines like “Vitamins Can Kill You” followed soon after. This negative attention resulted in numerous researchers looking closely at the meta analysis to see how it could be that increasing dietary vitamin intake could actually be killing people. Unsurprisingly they found that ALL of the studies under review involved synthetic supplements, not Uncategorized ones.

An 11-year study by the Queensland Institute of Medical Research involving 1,056 test subjects, found, those who ate at least three serves of green leafy vegetables a week reduced their risk of skin cancer by up to 55 per cent.

Studies from the Human Nutrition Centre on Aging at TUFTS University suggest that consuming antioxidant rich fruits may help slow the aging process.

Research scientist Maret Traber found that the liver will preferentially recycle Uncategorized vitamin E and excrete the synthetic imitation, effectively ‘spitting it out’ like a bad taste. In a Vitamin E study by the National Research Council of Canada, Dr Burton discovered that given a choice, the body ALWAYS chooses Uncategorized vitamins over synthetic ones. Don’t you think you should do the same?

Well, now’s your chance to get behind Australia’s Best Kept Secret and experience for yourself the difference that real nutrition can make to your health. Kakadu International invites YOU to benefit from its unique profit sharing opportunity as it expands internationally.

Car Insurance Costs Driven Down By Technology

Surprising for many is the fact that sometimes car insurance rates can actually go down. In fact, there are lots of exciting things happening that pose to save drivers lots of money. New technology that is already in the marketplace is saving money and lives already. Below are 3 new technologies that will keep more people safe on the road and reduce the cost of car insurance.

1. Electronic stability control (ESC). ESC systems use computer-controlled braking systems that help the driver maintain control of a vehicle that is beginning to lose control. In 2007, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began requiring all manufacturers to install ESC in all passenger cars, SUVs, vans, and pickup trucks. According to a study done by NHTSA, more than 2,200 lives were saved from 2008-2010 due to the installation of ESC. When more people are safe on the road, car insurance premiums tend to decrease.

2. Driver-less car technology. Google is leading the charge in developing cars that drive themselves. In fact, the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a self-driven vehicle in May 2012. While many do not want their car to drive them to work, the technology being developed will do amazing things to keep accidents to a minimum. Basically the car will know before you do that you are about to hit something and will react for you. Less accidents means less of a car insurance premium.

3. Attention control system. Driver fatigue causes thousands of crashes every year. Volkswagen has a new technology to combat this. A camera in the car monitors your blinking and if it detects a shortage of blinks, it assumes the driver is asleep. An alarm will sound that will alert the driver that is time to either pull over or switch drivers. Again, more safety means less accidents, which results in car insurance that is more affordable.

I would love to see a technology that would not allow a drunk driver to even start the car. That would also save thousands of lives. I’m sure this technology would be easy to develop if it hasn’t been developed already. Technology is improving every aspect of our lives. It’s even saving the lives of thousands. As better safety technology is developed, less accidents will occur on the road.

The safer everyone is on the road, the less we will have to shell out for car insurance. Car insurance companies will no longer have to spend millions of dollars on claims and we’ll all benefit!

What Do I Like To Do Business Concepts – Wax My Car

Every weekend, my neighbor gets out and washers, waxes, and details his sports car. I swear he must love that thing, probably more than his wife. Interestingly enough, I know a thing or two about cleaning and detailing automobiles. In fact, I had built up a mobile auto detailing and mobile car washing business, and then franchised it serving some 23 states and 450 different cities. We cleaned fleets of vehicles, car lots, and personal cars and office buildings. It was a fun business because I loved cars, and it grew from there.

Might I suggest if you are considering starting your own business, that you consider doing something that you love to do? Whatever is your passion, that’s where you should be focusing your energy, and you should try to stick within that category. Running a business is hard work, and you’ll have to spend lots of hours, so you may as well do something that you love. Then it doesn’t seem so onerous, and the time spent isn’t boring. Now then, if you love automobiles, especially high-end cars, then you might like to do mobile auto detailing.

This is where you travel to the customer’s car in a specialized mobile detailing rig with everything set up inside, and then you clean and detail a person’s car for a very high price onsite. Basically, you are making their car look new again, and you are building your business through referrals in the process. What does it take to start a business like this? Well, there are tools of the trade, and you can find out about these things online. Once you have the right equipment you’ll need to do some marketing, and you can find books on this.

Why would you wish to be stuck in an office, when you are a car buff? You see, it would hardly make sense to be stuck in a career that you didn’t enjoy, and you felt as if you were stuck in an economically enslaved prison set up just so you could pay your bills. You must follow your passion, follow your dreams, and do what feels right. Far too many people start businesses that they think will make money, but they don’t enjoy doing. As they lose interest, they stop paying attention to the details, and eventually the business fails.

It doesn’t have to be this way, and if you are like me, and you like cars, then starting a mobile car wash, or a mobile detailing business might be right up your alley. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.

Activity Internet Marketing Report, Internet Marketing Information







One of the first things you should do is check the government regulations that effect Internet marketing. Two of the main regulation deals with e mails. You can only send out your offer to persons who have contacted you about your offer or (a one time only) persons who have contact you with their offer.

You are required to enclose in all your e mails, your e mail address, your business address and phone. If you will be using a autoresponder you are required to have a unsubscribe link, so persons who may have contacted to receive your offers, newsletter, etc. can click on and have their name removed from your list.

It is also very important to remember if you join a MLM as a affiliate the firm you are marketing for meet the regulations, as you too could be charged if they make outrages claims about their product, how much money can be made etc.

The FTC enters Internet, telemarketing, identity theft and other fraud-related complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to hundreds of civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S.

and abroad.

Get your own website, avoid the free ones offered by MLM’s. Don’t be restricted to one firm’s product with a free website.

With a free web site you would have no chance of being listed on the search engines, as there would be hundreds of web sites with the same offers. All you are doing is working for free, paying for advertisements for someone else’s products. If there was some product you wanted to sell from a MLM firm, you can join as a reseller and place just the product you want to handle on your website.


You didn’t learn it at school, or at the office.

Would you believe your mother?

Networking is more then shaking hands, and giving out business cards. Forget about the endless networking skills you may have learned at the office. We just have to put the few lessons mother taught us into practice. As a kid we were always in a hurry to find something better. Our mothers taught us patience.

If your in a hurry you miss the value that can be built taking time with building relations in networking. Establishing a relationship by taking time, gives you a solid framework in networking building.

Your mother worked hard as an example. This is one of the better examples in networking she gave you. That’s why it is called networking, not sit work. For networking to be successful you have to work hard and put out the effort.

Remember her telling you to share your things with others? Some of our best resources are time, money, and information we are willing to give to the relationship. They appreciate us when we are willing to give to the relationship.

She always made you clean up after yourself. In networking, follow-up is required. Whether it’s a promise to meet someone, or just a thank you is one of the most important lessons of networking. These life lessons we learned from mother during childhood are a solid basis’s for strong networking skills.
Thank you mother for all your help.

The biggest time spend in selling, more so in mail order or on the Internet is developing a relationship with your customer and building trust. If you did a good job in the first two, closing a sale will take the smallest of your time spend with your customer.

Comparison Car Rental Websites

The World Wide Web, or internet, is by far the most revolutionary invention mankind has come up with. There is an unlimited amount of information available to us with just a few key strokes. Car hire is included in this. We can now compare rates from the major car hire companies instantly. The good thing about this is that the companies are aware that clients can check. This keeps them more competitive and we reap the benefits with cheaper car hire.

With the internet however it does reduce our power to bargain with the companies as they already have the cheaper rates on the website. So the bargaining is already done and it doesn’t matter if you have a provider you prefer. You can still use the internet to get the best price from that branch, if it is more convenient.

What New Drivers Need to Know About Car Insurance

If you are a new driver, there are several things that you will need to know about car insurance. The most basic rule though, is that if you are going to drive a car, you must carry some form of coverage. This is just one fact you need to know pertaining to auto insurance. Listed below are several more things you will need to know as well.

Locating a Provider

First of all, in the past, you would have to sort through page upon page of ads in your local yellow pages to locate insurance providers in your area. Then, you had to phone them one by one to get quotes. However, this is no longer the case. The Internet has made locating insurance companies extremely easy.

You simply need to choose one of the many car insurance comparison websites available and type in some basic information pertaining to you and your car. The site will then match you with several providers in your area. At this point, you can choose to have these companies phone you, email you or both.

Comparing Coverage and Rates

The next thing you must know about auto insurance is how important it is to compare the coverage and rates of several providers before you choose one. Different companies offer varying rates, coverage and even discounts. With that said, you should always contact the providers in your area and find out more about them before you choose to purchase a policy.

When it comes to discounts, if you search long enough, you are sure to find some valuable ones that will help reduce your insurance premiums. Many insurance providers offer attractive discounts in an effort to gain clients. Some of the discounts that are commonly offered include new drivers, senior citizens, excellent students, safe-driving courses, air bags, safety equipment and good driving histories.

Raising Your Deductible

In addition to discounts, there are many other ways you can reduce your insurance premiums. One way is to opt for a higher deductible. This is a matter of choice, and you should think this through carefully before making a decision. While a high deductible will lower your monthly premiums, you may have to pay more should you become involved in an accident.

Liability or Full Coverage?

Another thing you need to know about car insurance is the difference between liability and full coverage. Liability is the minimum coverage that you can purchase, and it will provide compensation to other drivers in the case of accidents if you are at fault. However, it will not pay for any damage to your car or injuries to you or your passengers.

Full coverage is much more expensive than liability but there are many benefits to this type of coverage. The best thing about full coverage though, is that it not only will pay for the other driver’s damages and injuries, but it will pay for yours as well. In many cases, it will also cover such things as theft and damage to your car due to weather conditions or falling objects.

These are just a few things that new drivers need to know about car insurance. If you are a new driver, the above information can help steer you in the right direction when choosing a policy to suit your needs. However, always remember that you should compare the rates and coverage of several providers before choosing one.

How to Easily Shop For Shoes

It has been said that shopping is a woman’s best exercise. This may be true in a certain degree as it has been noted that women in general really enjoy roaming around the mall just to find the perfect item they want to buy. But as much as women love to shop, it is still best that the time for shopping is lessened as much as possible. Doing this will give you more time to do other things of importance.

Shoes, for example, are products that give women a hard shopping time, making them lurk around the mall for longer hours. So when it comes to shopping for them, how can you use your time in order to get the perfect fit?

First and foremost, know what kind of shoes you are looking for. Are you looking for running shoes for working out? Or perhaps you are looking for shoes that you will wear at the office? Or maybe you want to buy a pair of fashionable boots that you can wear for a party? Make sure that this is clear before you go wandering around the mall in order to prevent you from being sidetracked into buying other shoes that you don’t need. Also, know your allotted budget for you to essentially narrow down your choices of shoes.

When shopping for shoes, it is better that you go to a specialty store than going to a department store. This is because the people at the specialty store are much, much more knowledgeable about the products and that is one thing that you should really have, someone you can trust to give you good advice. Doing this will help you to find what you are really looking for–functional, nice, and durable pair of shoes.

Make it also a habit to shop later in the day. Our feet have the characteristic to be swollen after being used for sufficient hours in a day. Shopping while in this condition would assure you that the shoes that you will purchase will still suit perfectly to the shape of your feet even after your feet have already expanded. This is a good move to prevent the intense pain that you could experience when you’ve used the shoes for longer hours.

Also, bear in mind the age of the one who will wear the shoes as those in the younger ages are most likely still in the growing process. It is wise that you put some allowances to give an appropriate space for the feet’s growth. Doing this will also save your money and time as you will not need to buy new pairs of shoes constantly.

Take time to examine the shoes before trying them on. This will save you time and effort as you will only allot your time trying the ones that potentially suit you. When trying them, make sure that you walk around the shop to make sure that they indeed are perfect for your feet.
