Practical Solutions

IdeasIn life there are problems to solve, obstacles to overcome and issues to deal with.  How we deal with these life occurrences makes all the difference.

Many times people will panic, procrastinate or completely ignore the issue at hand. However, these are not “practical solutions” but instead attempts at avoidance. We all know that avoidance of an issue cannot possibly bring about your desired outcome, unless the only outcome that you are looking for is a lack of confrontation and a repeat of the same problems, obstacles and issues.

Instead of practicing avoidance, we can work on using practical solutions to live a happier, more fulfilled life. 

1. Understand the difference between avoidance and procrastination. 

Avoidance, or avoidance coping, is not the same as procrastination. Avoidance coping can lead to depression, withdrawal and various personality disorders.  According to the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, the purpose of avoidance coping is to protect oneself from psychological damage.  Dr Alice Boyes provides us with useful tips for overcoming avoidance coping. read more

Get Response Product Review

Shop till you dropHaving a blog is not the only thing your need to start a business online. Yes, it’s your “Hub”, your home, the place visitors come to learn more about you.

For this reason quality content on your blog is vital for visitor attraction.

So how do you “capture” their visit? That’s the first question. The second is – how to you stay in touch and build a relationship with them.

Easy. You use an Auto-responder  email service.

There are several companies online specializing in this specific service and they wary. Some may cost a bit more, some may have some different features to offer.

But in essence, they all basically operate the same. They offer the ability to create an “Opt-in” form to place on your website to capture a visitor’s email address which is then added to an email list. This allows you to stay in touch with potential customers through email newsletters, website updates, etc. read more

Where is the Networking in Network Marketing?

Network Marketing Tips

True Network Marketing and the power of community is a major contributor to our business success, whatever we sell or promote online.  This is what originally attracted me to the PAC community and I’ve not been disappointed.

I’ve been blogging since 2006 on my own sites, for web building clients and as a volunteer for a few charities. At first, my own blog was a way to record all that was new in blogging and social bookmarking, for my own learning purposes, and to satisfy my need to teach others. I started leaving comments on other blogs, here and there, but it wasn’t until I offered to help another blogger  that my own blog really took off. I hadn’t realized how popular her blog was. She put my site into her sidebar blog list and her followers started following me. Most blogs had those lists back then, before the days of widgets. Anyone remember them? read more

Power Affiliate Club – Your Local Mom and Pop Store

PowerAffiliateClub-YourLocalMomandPopStoreLesly Federici asked me the other day to write a post on why I prefer affiliate sales over any other kind of marketing online, so here goes.  

I started out on eBay in the year 2000 but after about three years of dealing with the auctions, packing and sending of physical products that I decided to move on to something else.  This was before SOS – Has It Gotten Hold Of You Yet? 

  Like most everyone else, I came across the “next best Shiny Object Syndrome” and I just knew it was going to work out. No problems in the future, this is what I will have as my online business; final decision made and moving forward.    After a few months of the hype of that program, talking with hundreds of people who were interested and wanted to make a change in their lives too, I signed up, I believe 60+ people that the majority of them did absolutely nothing in terms of building their own team. Most just wanted to sign up, sit back, wait for spillover, collect their money and go on with their new life.     NOT… It doesn’t work that way.  So, I was off to another program.  There were a group of us, about 5 or 6 at that time, I think that stayed together and vowed to make the next program work, no matter what.  Again, same thing; we signed up people and nothing happened. I do have to say there were some who put 110% into making the program work but in a matrix type program; all have to want the same thing and be willing to work for it and do it continuously.    After quite a long time of “program hopping” I decided to try affiliate sales. I had been involved in affiliate sales all along and had been making sales but the “SOS” kept pulling me along every few weeks or so to some where else.    Lots of lost money down the road but plenty of education on all kinds of internet marketing, I decided that affiliate sales was the only thing that made sense.  If you cannot make money in affiliate sales, then you are absolutely in the wrong internet arena.  Note; this post is from my experiences and does not refer to any one program or person.  

In affiliate sales, the products and believe me there are an unlimited supply of items that you can sell and earn commission from.  Selling physical items from Amazon, Walmart, K-Mart or any of the other retail stores and shops is a perfect business model.  You decide on your strategy, get the word out to those who are interested in buying and the products sells itself.  Amazon or what ever retailer you are an affiliate of takes care of the ordering details, the shipping and the refunds if needed.    read more
