Do you have a successful offline business that you have been running for around at least five years?

Many successful businesses are afraid to get started online, because they think it isn’t important, or that it is too expensive. But the reality is that getting your own website doesn’t have to cost a fortune and can be extremely lucrative. In today’s world, most everyone works online. And if you want to make more money, then (more…)
It is true that there are many online companies who want to steal your money! They want to take advantage of you, hoping that you don’t fully know what you are doing when it comes to social media marketing. Even if you do know what you are doing and how to use some social media sites to your advantage as an online business owner, there are dozens of social media sites used all over the world and only one company that teaches you how to use several of them for less than the cost of learning how to use one of them.
Mari, for example, will teach you in a very detailed manner how to utilize Facebook. Greg shows you everything you need for Twitter. Alaina will show you how to take advantage of Dropjack and Posterous. But you know what, these people only offer you bits and pieces of the social marketing puzzle, and half of the pieces may not even fit any more!
It is ridiculous, and yet everyday business owners new to the world of online marketing hand over thousands of dollars each trying unsuccessfully to learn about social media. When it comes down to social media marketing and consulting, you need to use every aspect of networking and put it all together. There are a few companies like Building Social Equity that provide detailed knowledge of several social media sites at an exceptionally reasonable price.

I have made thousands of dollars with my own products as well as thousands as an affiliate of other people’s products. I know that the key to online success for this decade is to know how to effectively navigate the waters of social media marketing.
Early on in my online marketing career, I was blessed to become associated with two extremely successful online businessmen. One is the owner of Trust Guard. Trust Guard is the leader in website security and verification. Chances are you have seen their green shield on an e-commerce site.
Their seals show visitors to thousands of sites that the business is legitimate, that their information will be kept private, and that the website is protected against hackers. The owner, David Brandley, also created The Ultimate Link Exchange. Dave taught me the value of writing articles and linking one website to another. I’ll come back to that in a moment.
The other online genius I met early on was Garrett Pierson, author and social media guru. Garrett created the comprehensive, 20 module social media video guide known throughout the world as Building Social Equity. Thanks to him, I learned the value of writing articles and posting them on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and many, many others.
When I decided to put the two forms of succeeding online together, I became successful myself. Now I use the talents of Dave, meshed with the skill of Garrett to write articles and submit them through a complex linking system to social media and article directory sites throughout the world. (more…)
The great philosopher Henry David Thoreau once said, “I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.” Everybody needs a little time to themselves; Time to sit alone and just think about everything or nothing in particular.
We need alone time to just analyze and breathe, to get away from the world and escape the stress that our society seems to force upon us. Standing alone is good for us when it gives us the chance to simply be ourselves and try to figure things out on our own.
However, Author G.B. Shaw insisted that, “Independence”… [is] middle-class blasphemy. We are all dependent on one another, every soul of us on earth.” What he meant by this is that (more…)
Becoming Hacker Safe:
Top Three Ways to Protect Your Website
With all the amazing new technology we have today, (like iPhones, iPads, Ebooks, Google,) much of what we do is connected to the internet.
People can access the internet just about anywhere, school, work, home, libraries, even on their phones and in the car. Since we have the opportunity to be online wherever we go, we are constantly working, playing and searching on the internet.
Sadly, with every positive attribute the internet gives us, there are also the negative. Hackers, skilled and trained in finding loopholes, have the ability to access servers and retrieve personal information. And because most website owners protect their transactions through SSLs but fail to protect their websites through vulnerability scans, the only hackers that are not employed are those that are (more…)
Building Your Reputation with Trust Seals
Why are you not making more sales online?
Is it because you don’t have trust or security seals? Is it because you have a bad reputation or no reputation at all? If so, we are going to teach you how to change that, and start making more money online.
Did you know that your reputation is one of the most important things to uphold in your business? The tricky part is figuring out how to create a strong, positive reputation.
An outstanding way to do that is by maintaining great customer service through satisfaction surveys, and support systems. You also need to make sure that your customers feel safe and secure around you.
You want your customers to trust you and know that you are a company that is (more…)
The other day I was online reading interesting articles that caught my eye, and I came across one that stood out above many others. It talked about students from Pattaya’s school that recently entered in an online safety logo contest.
The Hand-in-Hand Foundation joined with the Pattaya Cultural Council and city hall to sponsor the student logo design contest. Fifth grade student Sriprathum Paosombut earned the 3,000 top prize for her logo depicting a green monster chasing a computer with the caption “Think Before Using.”
It was amazing to read about these 5th grade students that didn’t just draw pictures in hopes to win a prize, but they were there to tell their classmates, parents, and teachers how important t is to be safe online. Sriprathum, the first place winner talked about how she knows that hackers try to access her information when she is online, the green monster was the hacker. “If you aren’t safe, they’ll get you,” she said with a knowledgeable smile.
The Pattaya Department of Social Welfare consultant Niphon Karnpien said the logo contest was aimed at creating designs that can be displayed in Internet cafes, schools and other places where youths gather to alert them to the perils of online fraud and other crime. He wanted to help everyone become more aware of what goes on online, to help prevent online fraud from happening.
I loved how the Hand-in-Hand Foundation then put the winning logos on display at its South Pattaya headquarters to distribute them to online businesses around town. This will give the children a chance to become known in a business environment, and to teach businesses that if 5th graders know the importance of online safety, then they better know how crucial it is to us trust seals like the logos the children made to protect their websites as well.
Trust Guard is the company I turn to when I purchase trust seals for my online business websites. 5th graders know how important it is to have trust seals and online safety, do you?
