As a business owner, you know that how your market your business is at the heart of your success. In fact, most aspects ofyour business are dependent on you developing a successful marketing campaign. You may provide the best services or sellthe best products, but if you don’t have a solid marketing plan, potential customers would never know about it.Today’s prospects are looking for useful information, but have a strong resistance to the "hard sell." Most consumers spend the time to research services online before making a purchase. They take the time to study different products, compare prices and features before ever stepping foot in a store.

Internet marketing can mean a lot of things. For some, internet marketing is practically synonymous with affiliate marketing. This is the process of selling products made by other people in order to earn commission.But internet marketing can be more than that too. Of course, internet marketing can mean building a website or a blog, building a massive audience for that platform, and then making money from adverts (Google AdSense for instance) or selling your own products.Internet marketing might mean selling a digital product such as an ebook or an online course.Internet marketing might mean selling something physical.Internet marketing may mean promoting a website as the end in itself – simply building a channel so that you can spread the word about something that’s important to you, or so that you can try to promote yourself to grow your own career. I recently spoke to a group of creative writers and explained to them how learning the basics of marketing on the web could allow them to promote themselves and find publishers!And of course, internet marketing might mean marketing an existing business in order to gain more customers and make more sales. Any small business should be interested in marketing themselves online.The fact of the matter is: internet marketing means getting word out on the web and it means creating brilliant content. And if you can do either or both of those things, then you can make the web work for you.Once you do that then pretty much anything is possible.Literally. We’ll see later in this book how the ability to work online can allow pretty much any of your wildest dreams and plans to come true – whether that means earning a passive income and travelling the world, or whether it means growing a massive business or working on projects that you are truly passionate about and getting paid for it!The only problem is that very few people have any idea what makes the web tick. People tell me they want to start their own business selling crafts, or they tell me that they want to start blogging for fun but they have zero clue what that entails. What is SEO? What is marketing?If you’re sitting there smugly thinking that you already know the basics of internet marketing, then time for a reality check. Because even if you know the basics of internet marketing, there’s a good chance that you don’t have all of the advanced skills you need to really make any project into a success.In this book then, I am going to start by outlining those basics. I’m going to teach you internet marketing 101 for those of you with no prior experience. This is what makes the web tick. This is your bread and butter.But from there, I’m then going to dive into the much more advanced stuff that many ‘internet marketing gurus’ in reality have no idea about whatsoever. You will learn skills here that will put you head and shoulders above the competition. You will learn tools that will make you immensely employable, to the point that you are never without work. And you’ll be able to turn any idea or concept into a reality.
Which aspects of Online Marketing are important, which are essential, and which ones can you take or leave? You be the judge
Focus is integral to accomplishment. It may actually fall in the same category as ambition, motivation, leadership and other driving forces behind becoming successful, but does not necessarily get the attention that it deserves. Often downplayed, the role of focus cannot be sabotaged in an individual’s ability to be productive.What all this basically means is that you need to be focused in order to achieve something or become successful in your endeavors. But before we go into that, here is a look at what focus really means.By definition, focus is a skill that allows people to start a task without procrastination and then keep up their attention and effort until the job is complete. It is an ability to not only pay attention to things that they are engaged in but also avoid distractions that will impede the work they are trying to do.

Need A Little Help with Your Health? Get A Dog! Dogs are considered man's best friend. But did you know that having a dog gives you several health benefits? In studies done by medical professionals, dog owners benefit from their pet's presence in several ways:1) Improved cardiovascular health - Dog owners have been proven to have blood pressure and cholesterol lower than ordinary people. These factors reduce the chance for cardiovascular diseases. Stroking a pet has long been known to reduce blood pressure.A study from the New York State University found that these benefits continue even without the pet available. The study tested a group of stockbrokers with hypertension. They concluded that just being a pet-owner can lower blood pressure.Dog owners also have blood cholesterol levels lower than normal. Five thousand four hundred people were tested by the Baker Medical Research Institute of Australia and with the results showing pet owners having not just lower blood pressure but also lower levels of blood triglycerides and cholesterol compared to people who didn't own any pets.2) Faster recovery time and higher survival rates - Hospital studies have found that seniors and recently operated on patients responded better to treatment and got better quickly while they were in contact with dogs and other therapy animals. Just petting a dog can be relaxing and therapeutic for recovering patients.Also, dog owners have a greater chance to survive after suffering from a serious illness. Several studies have discovered that pet owners who suffered from a heart attack were more likely to be alive a year after they were discharged from the hospital than those who did not own pets. Another New York study found that pets affected their survival rate more even more than the presence or company of family members or friends.3) Fewer visits to the doctor - Studies conducted at Cambridge and UCLA have found that owning a pet corresponds to overall improved health and less need for hospital visits. A Medicare study of its elderly patients also discovered that those who own dogs visit the doctor less than those who don't have a pet.4) Mental Wellness - Patients who have dogs have also been known to have better emotional health than their counterparts. They offer unconditional love and affection; their presence alone helps reduce loneliness for sick people who have otherwise been isolated. Several studies of people with major illnesses have shown that the stress of fighting the disease is significantly reduced when they had a dog as company.As you can see, having a dog is a great investment, for the joy that you get from owning one and the health benefits that you can receive. So, go out and get a dog!
If you could increase your brain power, then theoretically you could accomplish almost anything. While having a healthy and strong body is highly important as well, most of us would probably agree that our activities are more reliant on our cognitive abilities rather than our physical ones.Many people have computer-based jobs for instance, and this means that we need to use our brains to handle data, to manipulate software, or to come up with business strategies. Much of our success comes down to our ability to interact with others, which of course is very much dependent on our intelligence and our brain power. Whether you’re giving a presentation and choosing the best words to communicate your message, or whether you’re in an interview or date setting and trying to quickly find the wittiest or funniest response to a question. Problems at home tend to involve finances, social situations or legal issues – there are very few problems we can solve with our fists. In our spare time, we tend to pursue more intellectual activities too. Perhaps we play video games (reacting to enemies and solving puzzles), or maybe we sit and read. And even when an activity seems ‘physical’ on the surface, it is in fact very often just as much cognitive. Take sports for example, which require you to be aware of the positions of your team mates and opponents and to use your body efficiently and accurately through space. Or how about doing ‘physical labor’ such as making repairs – which almost always involves some measure of engineering.

The Balancing Truth, Love and Power book is derived from one of the most famous authors in the area of personal development, Steve Pavlina.The key point of this book is to understand Steve Pavlina’s principles and apply it in a concise and straightforward way in your life. The ideas in this book are not endorsed by Steve Pavlina but are merely a take on the principles, how it works – especially for the Internet era.In his book, “Personal Development for Smart People” talks about the 7 principles in terms of effective development and if any of you apply the strategies and principles, you will be amazed with the wonders they can potentially bring to your life. The book lays down a very firm foundation for the readers to understand the root causes on the things that they do.For instance, at times you will see people talking about the big plans of their lives but after a few years, you never happen to see them coming to pass. What are the reasons behind it? Also, do you really know the motivation behind a person who is courageous? What are some of the things that are actually stopping you from being who you want to be today?After reading the book, I understand why sometimes I behave in a certain way. I used to be a very timid person and had problems starting conversation with the people I met for the first time. I didn’t know what the problem was until I found out there was actually a kind of fear in me that stops me from going all out to initiate a conversation. It was the fear of rejection.Of course, being able to identify the problem is only the first step and it won’t really help me to overcome my fear of rejection. Nevertheless, it gave me a direction on where I should work towards. The rest of the story is history.So what is the ultimate formula?It is the balance between truth, love and power. One must weigh the 3 components in a balanced manner. When you have only truth without love and power, your life remains unchanged.You know exactly the kind of problems you are facing but you just do not have the power to many the changes in you. Although, there is a famous quote that goes, ‘Love is Blind’, love isn’t really blind in reality. You need to love the person correctly and that is why you need truth and power to say no to his unhealthy request, like eating too much fat. When you have power without truth and love, people will suffer because power can be abused.Those are some of the examples. Don’t worry if the above does not make any sense to you at this moment. As you go through the entire book, you will be able understand the balancing principles in depth.

There's no question that our cats are full-fledged family members. Their loyalty, their love, and their ability to comfort us are unparalleled.Sometimes, though, their hair or odors can leave an unwelcome footprint in our homes. Just as we clean up the spills made by our kids (or our spouses!), it's up to us to clean up after our cats. Luckily, there are any number of products that make pet care a breeze.Cat Litter BoxesCats are generally low maintenance pets, but their litter boxes often contribute little to you home decor, and can become a smelly nuisance. Today's litter boxes, though, can bring a touch of whimsy to your interior design, while their functionality can put an end to messes and odors.One line of litter boxes comes in an assortment of patterns and colors, from solid silver and solid black, to polka dot, leopard print and wood grain. The litter tray door pulls out, and a metal sifter rake pulls and lifts litter out of the tray for easy cleaning. Another ingenious design has a triangular shape so that you can easily place it otherwise used corner space.If you want to make cat care even easier, self-cleaning litter boxes are the answer. One style has an internal grill that traps used litter. You simply roll the enclosed litter box on its side and remove the waste tray. Another type takes self-cleaning to the next level by having a slowly but rotating system that quietly but continuously scoops used cat litter into a receptacle.The ultimate litter box is one that automatically flushes cat waste down your toilet. Instead of cat litter, this box uses permanent granules that are washable. After your cat uses the box, the granules are automatically washed, disinfected, and dried. Liquid and any solid waste are flushed down the toilet with fresh water. Kitty LitterWhen it comes to kitty litter, many cats have a preference for one brand over another. But if you start with the right litter or are persistent, you can find kitty litter that can help eliminate odors while keep your cat healthy. One brand of kitty litter on the market not only neutralizes litter box odors, but also changes color if your cat has a urinary tract infection.Given that urinary tract infections can quickly become life threatening, early detection is key. It's also helpful to have information about a potential infection to give to your veterinarian.Shedding ToolsMany people who love cats are troubled by allergies, or by the cat hair that clings to furniture and clothes. Products that help with shedding take one of two approaches: either they work at the source of the problem (your furry feline) or they make it a snap to clean up hair off of furniture.Cats typically shed their undercoat (rather than the hair you see), so a product that helps you remove hair from your pet - a "furminator" of sorts - means you'll never see it on your couch. These products brush out the dead hair from the undercoat (but don't cut it), while bringing your cat's natural oils to the surface. Because this type of product also helps stops overzealous self-cleaning, your cat may be less likely to be bothered by hairballs.Cat care isn't difficult, and the great litter boxes, kitty litter, and shedding tools make it even easier!
Most individuals have an idea just what type of pet they want; however, the maintenance of a pet can cause some concern.Knowing how to choose the correct pet for you may be easy. You may have had several pets as a child and know you need a companion for your own home or you may have always wanted a pet but been told you could not have one. Whatever the case you may need to take into consideration some key points to pet care when deciding what pet is right for you.First some pets take more care than others. Dogs are very needy animals. They are very sensitive towards their owners. I am sure most of you have heard of dogs tearing up a house when left along all day. Dogs can get bored even when they have other dog companions and toys. They need the human interaction. Most dog owners take their dogs out for a walk before work and after work for the exercise and play time.Other owners who work outside will often let their dogs come to work with them to keep them out of trouble. Cats on the other hand can amuse themselves and as long as you put your valuables on a shelf, they cannot reach and keep a clean house they will sleep, look out windows, and play with toys while you are away. Fish are another type of pet that is typically low maintenance except for cleaning the fish tank.Pet care is very important when you own a pet. They need attention from their owners, positive reinforcement, training, and love. Fish are usually excluded from this statement, as they just need food, proper tank maintenance, and a few plants to sustain life, however the point is proper pet care is required when you own any pet. The decision will be yours to make in choosing what the right pet is for you. Above I mentioned three types of pets and little about their care, now I am going to look at it a little more.While dogs are high maintenance and require the most training they are also one of the best pets to own. They can alert you to danger, alert you to someone at the door, and give unconditional love back. A dog only asks in return for proper care and a great deal of attention. If you cannot be home all the time, you will want to make sure the dog has a roof over their heads in case of inclement weather, and a huge yard to play in. Some dogs can jump fences so it may be best to have a dog run in the yard so they can move about, but not escape.Cats on the other hand can be high or low maintenance depending on breed as well as personality. Some cats require hours of people attention while others shirk attention. Some cats belong to a one pet household. They do not like to share their owner’s affections and will become upset if not mean towards the infiltrator.Others need the playmate’s attention to live happily. It will be hard to determine just which type of cat you own when you first buy them as kittens as their personalities are just developing.Pet care is the most important factor when you are deciding which pet is right for you and your home. You will want to consider all the pet care needs of the animals you are looking at as well as the breed you are looking at to determine if they will have a happy place in your home.
