Create Your Own Shopping Mall and Work from Home


Source: Flickr


There’s no disputing that the Internet has enabled hundreds of thousands of people to launch their own home based business.
And, with the economy on the brink of recession, more people than ever before are looking for ways to supplement their existing income, to recover from a job loss, or to hedge against uncertain times. An Internet home based business offers a multitude of benefits. You can make your own hours, so you can work while the kids are in school or after they’ve gone to bed at night. You can avoid the time wasted by a daily commute and don’t have to pour money into your gas tank going to and from work everyday. Best of all, you don’t have to answer to a boss, because you are the boss!

Because the amount of money consumers spend online is at an all-time high, one of the best businesses you can launch is an online shopping mall. While this seems counterintuitive – after all, where are you going to store all of the inventory? – many people are finding extraordinary success in selling online.

What’s the secret? It’s actually pretty simple. You just need to find a supplier who will give you access to products that you can sell online, and then who will do the shipping for you. In other words, you don’t have to stock inventory, you don’t have to deal with packaging and shipping; you just need to sell the products. Ideally, the company you partner with should have 200,000 or more products from which you can choose. When you have access to that kind of inventory, you can become an eBay power seller or a star Amazon trader in no time at all.

When you’re looking for a company with which to partner, find one that has at least three different plans. One might be an auction plan, with a one-time set up charge and no monthly fees. You should have access to low wholesale prices and all of the company’s products, with no minimum order.

Another option might be a website plan where you get your own website pre-loaded with all of the products, where you can customize your website, and where no merchant account is required. A third option might be a website and auction plan where you can have the best of both worlds, and where you get a free domain and a free email account.

Beyond the plan options, you should look for a company with no monthly fees, that offers free order fulfillment, and that will dropship every product you sell directly to your customer. In other words, you should be able to have a turnkey shopping mall that you can administer from home. All you need is a computer.

As for the types of products you sell, there are virtually no limits. The best partnering companies offer hundreds of thousands of products in categories like apparel, computers, electronics, health and beauty, home and garden, jewelry, toys and games, and so forth. Typically, an online shopping mall that offers a wide variety of products is more successful than one that offers a small selection.

Starting a home based business can be incredibly satisfying, as well as financially rewarding. The secret lies in partnering with the right company.

Relationships Are The Key To A Network Marketing Business

Relationships Are The Key To A Network Marketing Business

While it is true that heavily branded websites like amazon.com are household names and carry an implied trust with visitors, the vast majority of websites are not well known and are found and visited as a result of searches performed with search engines. In these instances, the visitor is probably arriving at the website for the first time and human nature often dictates fear or suspicion of the unknown.
If someone is shopping around for the best price for a particular item, say a Cuisinart food processor, they would probably go to a site such as Ask Jeeves (at ask.com using the Smart Search for Products feature) and quickly obtain a list of sources and prices for the desired item. The “yes/no” purchase decision has already been made and it is simply a question of who to buy it from.
In the case of network marketing, it is of critical importance to build a sense of trust with your team members. Network marketing is very definitely a relationship business and each relationship typically starts out with two complete strangers sitting at their respective keyboards.
The team building aspect of network marketing is of vital importance to the success of each individual member and to the team as a whole. Two key elements of team building are trust and confidence and these factors play a very large role, particularly for new team members.
As a team leader, you need to be knowledgeable about the business (products, services, or whatever) and straightforward with answers to questions about the business as well as providing timely and thorough support to your team members. These actions will cement the relationship and build trust and confidence among your team members.
Network marketing has many aspects, but promotion, persistence, and patience are three key elements which are critical to achieving successful results.
PROMOTION is the lifeblood of network marketing. Whether you are using online methods or offline methods, or a combination of both, you must constantly strive to get your offering in front of a targeted audience.
There are thousands of published sources that deal with specific methods of network marketing (both online and offline), but the key point to be made here is that you must have an active promotion campaign designed to bring in a steady stream of new prospective downline members.
PERSISTENCE is a key element in network marketing success. You’ve gotta “just keep on keepin’ on”, even though frustation levels can be quite high at times.
After you have been at it a while, and have a downline large enough to provide reasonably accurate statistics, you will probably find that about 95% of your downline members are dormant and do nothing at all.
Its easy to get down in the dumps or take it personally when you encounter so many “do nothing” people.
Therefore, it is really important work with and actively support the 5% or so that are serious about participating. And clearly, an active and effective promotion campaign will continue to bring in increasing numbers of potential participants so that while 5% is small on a percentage basis, it can still be a sizeable amount from a pure numbers standpoint.
PATIENCE is vital. You can expect that it will take about a year before the awsome power of geometric growth kicks in.
A classic illustration of geometric growth is the frequently used penny-a-day example.
If you save one penny on the first day, and double it every successive day, (day two you have 2 pennies and day three you have 4 pennies, and so on) how much will you have at the end of 30 days? The answer, to the astonishment of many, is $5,368,708! Amazing, but true.
Its a sad statistic that most network marketers fail and it is often traceable to the fact that they did not exhibit enough persistence and patience to continue constantly promoting their business for the year or so that is required for success.
Network marketers that stick with it for a year or more often end up becoming the proverbial “heavy hitters”.
In closing, I would like to encourage you to increase your chances of becoming a successful network marketer by always keeping a clear focus on “the three P’s” of Promotion, Persistence, and Patience.

Parrot Jewelry: Colorful, Exotic, Fun!

Parrot Jewelry: Colorful, Exotic, Fun!

Parrot jewelry is the mark of a bird-lover, someone who likes freedom and the sight of creatures exercising that freedom across the open skies.
It is also the mark of someone who likes lively, colorful things. Brightly hued and endearing, these designs bring delight not only to the wearer, but also those who see them being worn.

Young girls wearing parrot jewelry often have their own quirky fashion sense: one that is unique and independent and definitely pleasant to the eyes! Mixing and matching various colorful clothing pieces would require colorful jewelry as a final accent. In this manner, wearing parrot jewelry speaks of sensuality and being in tune with one’s own creative talents. Also, the colorful nature of parrot jewelry would draw attention to a favorite body part, like earlobes or wrists.

Parrots are rare birds, found only in exotic places. People in lush South American areas still enjoy the sight of these wonderful creatures streaming across the skies, dotting the trees and vegetation, like gems in the heart of the rain forest. In a way parrots are the jewelry of the earth, refreshing touches of color that lend a surprising sort of beauty to long stretches of lush woodland.

But it is exactly this unique natural beauty that makes some parrot species endangered today. Some rare parrots are captured and traded in other countries for an exorbitant price. The Amazon parrot is one of the more spectacular and rarer breeds, and it is among the most at risk of dying out.

Yet there are many species of parrots in the world today. Some are bred exclusively for sale, making delightful and intelligent pets. Who doesn’t want a colorful pet that could provide hours of entertainment? Still, nothing beats the beauty of colorful birds free to roam the wild. Wearing parrot jewelry is certainly a celebration of the glory of these exotic birds!

Who is Alexa and what does she have to do with me?

Who is Alexa and what does she have to do with me?

Traffic is the most important thing to any web based entrepreneur. And Alexa pretty much has a monopoly on that data. Ignore her at your own peril.

Alexa reminds the Computer Man Website Design Team of the teaching of Jesus Christ speaking of the rulers and powers of His time as recorded in the Holy Bible, Matthew 23:4, New American Standard Bible, “They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger”.

Sure sounds like the few who control internet content to the old Tennessee Mountain Man.

Want to get an Alexa ranking that matters for your website? You should because all other directories, indexes and search engines stop by their website to see who you are and whether or not you are a mover and shaker in your internet niche.

Alexa may well be the world wide web’s Dunn and Bradstreet. If you know anything about business, business finances, the Better Business Bureau or the Chamber of Commerce or have had to deal with your broker or banker on business matters you know the importance and the drill. Sounds daunting, doesn’t it? Sure it does, and what makes it worse is Alexa’s hypocrisy. Like the credit bureaus, Alexa collects, keeps and reports information about you and your website, but it keeps no data on its’ own traffic.

The first question asked by your prospective partners, marketers, and promoters is what is your Dunn and Bradstreet… oops sorry, Alexa rating.

Alexa, located at the Presidio of San Francisco, CA, was founded in 1996 by Brewster Kahle and Bruce Gilliat. It offered a toolbar that gave Internet users guidance on where to go next, based on the traffic patterns of its user community. Say what? Yes, this cousin of Big Brother thinks it knows better what you want or need than you do. And, they select who best provides that for you. Based on what? Based on their user traffic.

Who do they think they are, and how do I become a part of this crucial community of the web elite?

They are the people who offer context for each site visited: to whom it was registered, how many pages it had, how many other sites pointed to it, and how frequently it is updated. Engineers at Alexa, in cooperation with the Internet Archive, created the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. The nonprofit organization established to preserve Web sites by taking regular “snapshots”. The Wayback Machine provides links to older versions of a webpage. Alexa also supplies the Internet Archive with web crawls.

Amazon dot com acquired Alexa in 1999 for approximately $250 million in Amazon stock.

Alexa entered a partnership with Google in 2002, and with the Open Directory Project about a year later in 2003. Live Search replaced Google as their provider of search results in the summer of 2006. Then in the autumn of that same year they began using their own Search Platform. Then in December they released Alexa Image Search. Built in-house, it is the first major application to be built on their Web Platform. Today, Alexa is primarily a search engine, an Open Directory based web directory, and a general supplier of site information to all suitors.

In late 2005, Alexa opened its extensive search index and web-crawling facilities to third party programs through a comprehensive set of web services and APIs. These could be used, for instance, to construct vertical search engines that could run on Alexa’s own servers or elsewhere. Unique to the internet, Alexa’s Web Search Platform gives developers access to their raw crawl data reinforcing their comparison with Dunn and Bradstreet. Alexa, like every other web based endeavor feeling the bandwidth pinch changed their API to require comparisons be limited to 3 sites, reduced size embedded graphs be shown using Flash, and mandatory embedded BritePic ads in the early summer of 2007.

So who is Alexa and what does she have to do with me? Alexa is the ultimate remote helpdesk. Accessible only as a self help desk, she is the real gatekeeper. Her stats help determine your Google Page Rank, and Firefox’s About This Site are all Alexa metadata. Everyone else also pretty much reports what is in her data base. You know those stats you depend so much on? Irrespective of who supplies them to you… chances are they got them from Alexa.

To join the club browse to Alexa dot com and follow the webmaster instructions. Don’t forget the Alexa Tool Bar! It matters! Alexa averages your raw traffic over a three month period to determine your traffic flow and where you rate. Under 100,000 visitors a month over any consecutive three month period and you drop off the radar.

Thus, whenever that song you entered will be played on any channel, a ‘beep’ tone will sound and the display will indicate “Song Found”.
