Eight Steps to Guarantee a Successful Video or Web Conference

A successful video or web conference can really give a boost to your organization. Online conferencing is now connecting people in a way that was not possible in the pre-Internet era. However, as powerful a tool as online conferencing is, it works best when you prepare your conferences properly. Here are some steps that you can take to help guarantee that your next video or web conference is a great success.

1. Make sure each of your attendees has enough bandwidth at his or her location

There is nothing more frustrating than trying to watch a video online when you just don’t have enough bandwidth to get it all. If your participant doesn’t have enough bandwidth there will be latency delays and he or she will not be able to enjoy the experience or participate properly. The amount of bandwidth that is required varies from system to system and also according to what features you will be using during the conference. Features such as video, audio, screen and application sharing have different requirements. Check with your vendor or provider to find out what the minimum bandwidth requirements are, and then make sure each of your locations does indeed have enough bandwidth.

2. Test your web cameras to see that they are working properly

If video will be involved at any of the locations, make sure that the location has tested their camera to ensure that everything is working satisfactorily. Ideally, all cameras should be tested from within the video or web conferencing system that you will be using. A camera that is working fine in one application may work differently within another system. Check it in advance so that you will not have any surprises on the day of your conference.

3. Check your sound equipment in advance

If VoIP (audio) is going to be used from within the meeting itself, make sure that all attendees have the right tools needed, whether these tools are microphones, headsets and speakers.

4. Supply your participants with proper access information in advance of the conference

If audio will be conducted via an audio conference call, make sure all attendees have the access number to dial into and the PIN (Personal Identification Number) they will need to access the call.

5. Conduct a “trial-run” of your presentation prior to the conference date

The presenters or leaders of the conference should practice in advance. If a presentation will be involved, make sure that whoever will be presenting any material has tested this part of the video or web conferencing system. The presentation that is to be used should be demonstrated to another party BEFORE the date of the actual meeting.

6. Supply web access information to your participants well in advance of the meeting

Make sure that all of your participants know how to access the video and web “conference room”. Send an e-mail “link” to each participant well in advance of the meeting so that they will be able to easily access the meeting when the appropriate day and time has arrived.

7. Get as much training as you can in the video or web conference system that you will be using

The host should be very familiar and comfortable with the video or web conferencing system they are going to use. If training is offered by your vendor or provider, then take advantage of this in order to become more familiar with the system. Familiarity with the system will help you to host a flawless meeting or conference.

8. Conduct a test meeting prior to the big event

Most importantly! Conduct a test meeting or two before the day of the “big” meeting. Tests will help you eliminate as many surprises as possible before you gather all of your attendees. A meeting free of technical glitches will go far to help you achieve the goals of your conference.

The key to a successful online conference, whether it be a web conference, a videoconference or a combination of the two, is preparation, preparation and preparation. The more you prepare and the more you practice, the better your online meetings will be.

5 Tips For Improving Your Site’s Search Engine Positioning

5 Tips For Improving Your Site’s Search Engine Positioning

Almost all webmasters or website owners are looking for ways to get better results from their websites. They wish to improve their site’s standing and get better rankings in search engines. This quest for improved results, known as search engine positioning, can be satisfied by following a few basic procedures.

Before you even begin, you have to realize that you are competing against hundreds, and in some categories, thousands of websites offering similar products and services.

In the case of affiliate marketing, many of the competing websites may even be identical! If you want to get the edge over these competitors and improve your search engine positioning you have to fine-tune your website and actively work to make it better.

1. Make Sure that your design is search engine friendly:

Your design may look good to your eyes, but it may also be the cause of your present difficulties and poor search engine positioning. How is that possible? Look at your web page using a text editor or in an html viewer of popular editors such as Dreamweaver and Editplus. On what line does your first line of copy begin? If your actual copy is pushed far down the page, it is more difficult for search engines to pick up the crucial information that would have helped you to improve your web page ranking.

If you have this difficulty, first take out all unnecessary spaces in the html code. If there are long strings of java script, put these in external files. Similarly, put style information in external Cascading Style Sheet files. Simplifying your table structure may also help. If this starts getting too complicated for you, then consult with a professional search engine positioning specialist or your web designer.

2. Make sure your keywords are strategically placed in your copy:

It is not possible to improve web page ranking if the readable copy on your web page does not contain the words you wish to be found by. Many people erroneously think that just putting your important keywords in meta tags is enough. This is not true, some search engines hardly use the meta tags and look more to the copy on the page. Make sure that your important copy is in the first paragraph of text, in headlines (using headers such as H1, H2, H3) and in the active or clickable portions of link text on your page.

3. Use a site map and text link navigation on your pages:

If you want to improve your search engine positioning for all the pages of your website then you have to be sure that these pages actually get indexed or included in the search engines. You can help this process by making a site map, a web page that has text links to all the sub pages of your site. Another good practice is to include a text link navigation system on your web pages, even if you already have a graphics based navigation bar elsewhere on these same pages. Remember, search engines follow text links more easily. A robot that lands on your main page or site map page will follow the text links and then visit and index your lower level pages.

4. Increase the quantity and quality of inbound links:

In fiercely competitive categories it will be difficult to improve web page ranking without obtaining a good number of links to your page from other websites. If you have very good and valuable copy, other sites may link to you because you are a valuable resource. However, if you want to speed this process along you will have to actively request links from other websites, either by trading links or by getting your content (with a link back to your site) placed on other websites.

When it comes to links you should keep in mind one important principle: it is not the quantity of links that is important, but the quality. One good link from an authority site such as CNN or Wikipedia is worth more than dozens of links from other sites. To get these quality links, there is no short cut. You will have to earn it by having a site that provides a lot of useful information.

5. Keep up with Search Engine Developments:

The challenge of improving your web page ranking and search engine positioning is dynamic. Search engines are not static. Most of the big search engines of yesterday have disappeared or are only minor players today. You should keep up with changes in the world of search engines by taking part in online forums or subscribing to newsletters which deal with topics such as Search Engine Optimization (SEO), web ranking, and general webmaster related issues.

If you do not have the expertise or the time to tackle these matters by yourself then you should take advantage of skilled professionals who can help you to improve your site's performance in search engines. Whether you rely on professionals or are able to do it yourself, these five tips can provide a good point of reference for starting the work.

A HUGE "GOLD" Angel Seen Over LA…

History was made in Los Angeles on Saturday as Lou Engle, Mike Bickle, Cindy Jacobs, Jack Hayford and other generals of the faith gathered at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for Azusa Now.

Jeff Jansen, founder of Global Fire Ministries, told Charisma News he believes it was one of the most significant events of the past few decades.

"As we were driving on Interstate 5 to the Azusa Now event on April 9, I saw a large gold angel standing over LA," Jansen says. "The Lord said, ’Just as the 1849 gold rush drew people to California…So 4/9 2016 will mark a new gold rush of divine proportion that will once again draw the nations into revival."

Here is what we know. The scripture says,"…For everything there is a sign.." What other sign could the large Gold angel refer to?

Isn’t it interesting that one of the largest spiritual gatherings in LA took place on the same day of the birth of the Founder of The Greatest International Movement to bring GOLD to the Masses?

Also, isn’t it interesting that the spiritual man of God saw a Large Angel standing over LA. And here at the Marriott, a man with the heart of a very large angel was standing, revealing to his helpers, the new developments in his work, to help the unfortunate do better, and for the masses of the human family to be able to acquire Gold.

That large angel that God gave that spiritual man the vision of, was none other than Harold Seiz of Stuttgart Germany.

Please read this Historic article here:

http://www.charismamag.com/spirit/prophecy/26103-jeff-jansen-sees-huge-gold-angel-at-azusa-now

 

HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW..

In 2008, before the financial meltdown, Harold was in the financial services industry. He was in that industry for 16 years. He saw what was coming in the economy, and put all of his client’s portfolios into Gold.

At that time, he had what we call "walk away" money, meaning he could have retired and lived very well for the rest of his life. However he had a Vision. If he helped his clients, why could he not help the world of humanity? That Vision, my friends, became what we know, today, as Karatbars.

Our Own Payment System, WorldWide!

It was almost like a child feels on Christmas day with all of new pieces to our Karatbars portfolio. One by one Harold uncovered the new additions.

*We have our own payment system, with both our grams and our cash gold for change.

We have the roll out of our K-Exchanges here in the U.S.

We even have an app that will allow the transfer of gold from one account to another seamlessly for easy transactions.

And as a Powerful safety precaution we have Karabars facilities in several regions of the world. My friends, we have a leader who has Great VISION.

 

Love Your Skeptics

Doc’s and my business partner, Rashard, is the biggest skeptic I have ever met. When Doc and I presented Karatbars to him and his sweet little wife 2 1/2 years ago, they did not want to hear any kind of karatbars.

His attitude was so bad, that before I walked out of his door, I put my hand on his shoulder, and looked him in his eyes and said," I love you like a brother, but you are WRONG!" And he will tell you, he had trouble sleeping that night.

Love your skeptics. But stand your ground and know what you got. Because you could be talking to Your Rashard, the "biggest champion" of your team. You could, also, be talking to the individual that will, single handed, take your business around the globe. Below is Rashard’s visit at the Kings Palace in Nigeria

http://www.thegoldservants.info

Also, I want to give a big shout out to our team members, who made the long journey from Nigeria & Ireland to join us at this historical event. You made it happen. We love you, and we applaud you. You are Leading by example!

 

"Successful People Do, What Unsuccessful People, Are Not Willing To Do!"

When my friend, and sponsor, Lourens Haasbroek from South Africa, introduced me to Karatbars, July 27, 2013, little did I know that my 41 year search for the business that I could experience some significant success was over. Yes, i have been searching since my first homebased business in 1972. I could have said forget it, and resign myself to just a J.O.B., but thank GOD I didn’t. Because I didn’t give up, I have been blessed with a business that spans around the globe with an organization of 20,000 Plus people. Successful people do, what unsuccessful people, are not willing to do.

This pic was taken at the Top Incentive Winners dinner at the home Harold was hosted in by Jeff Blue, one of the prominent Music Producers here in Beverly Hills. I did not win one of the Top Incentives, but helped Rashard win it. Love your skeptics, because your Biggest Skeptic just might be your team’s Biggest Champion. His mom and I call him OB, which means "Our Baby"…that’s her in the mirror taking my picture, lol.

Karatbars is the Greatest business that I have ever been a part of, and I will work it, to some degree, as long as GOD gives me breath. And Harold keeps making it better and better. I like what Mike Wiersma said Saturday, "…we haven’t even scratched the flee’s butt on the back of an elephant yet!"

And as Ty Best told us, "freedom is everything." And the 4 Steps he shared with us are,

1. You got to decide exactly what it is you want, and decide to be free.

2. Decide to pay the price. It is non-negotiable.

3.You got to change. Personal development. Read books.

4. You got to believe in this business. You got to believe in this company. You got to believe in yourself.

"Successful people do, what unsuccessful people, are not willing to do. I wish you much success. Peace Out!"

Take Your Mobile Marketing To The Next Level With These Great Tips!

Taking a step into the wondrous and complex land ofmobile marketing for the very first time might feel a little bit intimidating, but by keeping the helpful tips listed below in mind, you will soon find yourself marketing on par with some of the best marketers in the field.

When it comes to sending mobile marketing messages to your customers, be sure that you keep the size of any media files as small as possible. This is critical to ensuring that the download time for the message is low and that your customers are not charged extra data fees.

Integrate mobile marketing into other types of marketing. Mobile works best when tied together with other things such as print, television, radio, and live performances. Make sure to integrate 2-D bar codes or quick response codes into your print to help drive traffic to your mobile site. You will have endless opportunities.

No matter what type of features you are thinking of adding to your mobile marketing campaign, you need to remember that it is all about the execution here. Mobile users are growing at a faster rate than PC users ever have, so everyone is attempting to go mobile. Stand out by focusing on quality execution rather than just expansion.

If you are thinking about expanding to a different market with a different product, make sure that you start this effort first before you branch out to mobile marketing. It is going to be very difficult to pull people in from the mobile world to your new product, so go with what got you here and just repeat the process.

Take advantage of mobile applications that many mobile consumers already use and are very popular, like Google Maps. Google has a Local Business Center that will list your business on their Google Maps for that region. This way, your business will be targeted to the audience local to your area.

Provide instant rewards. With mobile marketing you can give your customers what they want, with no delays. Having a delay can make things lose their value or demand. People will participate in your marketing campaign hoping to get the promised reward. The quicker they get the reward, the happier they will be.

Remember when mobile marketing that not every mobile device is the same and thus the content you develop needs to cater to the general field and not anything overtly specific. For instance: Some people have slower connections than others, while others have smaller screen sizes. Be encompassing and not specific.

Take advantage of everything a mobile device has to offer. Innovation is happening very quickly in the mobile marketing arena, and much of it is driven by the quick innovation occurring in mobile hardware. Look at what the new devices have to offer and add their new abilities into your mobile marketing strategies. Just in the last two years, new hardware innovations that have affected mobile marketing have included front-facing cameras, location awareness and high definition video recording.

So, after reading and applying the helpful tips listed above, you should feel a bit more at ease in the land of mobile marketing. You have the tools; it’s time to use them. You should feel empowered and ready to begin your mobile marketing journey to help better promote your business.

The Final Battle Between Paper And Physical Gold Is Underway – Where Will You Stand?

The Final Battle Between Paper And Physical Gold Is Underway, And The Line To Defend For The Cartel Is $1300 Per Ounce

One of the most significant elements in gold price determination is the technical data points that usually spark the central banks to summarily kill any rally, and work to suppress the price using billions in paper contracts.  We saw this most recently on April 21 when in less than 5 minutes, a bullion bank dumped over $2 billion in naked gold contracts, which is 20% of the global mining output for the precious metal.

But these desperate efforts are quickly beginning to fail, and have only a very short-term affect on a price that is strongly in favor of going much higher.  And just as quickly as the central banks and Treasury ordered their lackey banks to naked short gold to protect the dollar five days ago, the price rebounded strongly to actually close the day in the green by a few dollars.

In the newest publication put out today by Dr. Jim Willie, the esteemed statistician and analyst announced that with the opening of China's new price mechanism at the Shanghai Gold Exchange, the final battle between paper and physical gold is underway, and the last line of defense for the paper markets is to hold the $1300 price.

                                                 "The Very Best GOLD On The Planet At The Very Best Price"

 

The Final Battle Between Paper And Physical Gold Is Underway – Where Will You Stand?

For the last year or more, not an elephant, not a gorilla, but a dragon has been found at the dinner table. Its breath has just made everybody at the table totally bald with some scorched red faces. Now all are looking at each other, wondering who will first mention the bald guys at the table. The Shanghai levers are finally functioning, starting with the Gold Fix and continuing with the RMB-based gold futures contract (which delivers gold metal oddly). The game is finally on, as in the climax chapter to the End Game.

Paper gold is totally disconnected from fundamentals. The paper charade is as impressive as it is corrupt. Its enemy is physical gold and related demand. Silk Road nations have strong gold demand, which will disrupt the entire geopolitical balance of power, extending from trade and non-USDollar platforms. The West has the corner on toilet paper used in the gold market. The United States has the corner on the USDollar, used in fraud and illicit tolls.

 

PAPER GOLD FRAUD

Paper Gold is a term used to describe the actively traded futures contracts which determine the gold price. Owning such paper instruments is not the same as owning physical gold bullion, since corruption defrauds the investor and interrupts the claim. Most investors remain largely unaware of how disconnected the paper markets (COMEX in United States & LBMA in England) are from reality. The entire concept of contractual (paper) price discovery has been corrupted beyond all recognition. The activity in the last couple years has raised great alarm due to the rapid pace of divergence between paper gold prices and the tangible world fundamentals within the gold arena.

 

The claims of paper contracts per ounce versus actual gold has run to almost 300-to-1 in recent months. It was considered outrageous two years ago when at only 25-to-1 or 40-to-1 in ratio. Imagine the lunacy of even five to six people claiming ownership to your car or house, or better yet your summer cottage by the lake. The dominance of paper gold pricing mechanisms has resulted in profound shortages in supply, as well as horrendous conditions for mining firms. They have been forced to shut down marginal mines, since not profitable. Only a rare few among mining firms like Majestic Silver has undertaken to deny supply to the COMEX, and to call a partial strike against the criminal COMEX organization. Absolutely no equilibrium exists in the gold market, as demand outstrips supply, which quickly vanishes. The shortages have made history in recent months and years.

 

The Final Battle Between Paper And Physical Gold Is Underway – Where Will You Stand?

Paper Gold on COMEX and LBMA is a crime scene. It is toilet paper with gilded surfaces, better described as elaborate corrupt contracts with a few gilded letters at the top. Trading gold futures, which are essentially delivery contracts, must entail some degree of abstract financialization. If someone is merely trading a gold contract in order to arbitrage, then it would be costly, time consuming, and ultimately pointless to shift physical gold around. It is only the paper gold contracts that trade hands, not the physical metal on ramps. The banker cartel relies upon this hardship of movement to create the corrupt scheme. People do not wish to carry 80 silver coins in their pockets or a kilogram of gold in a suitcase, so instead they use certificates which become instantly corrupted. The necessary evil has grown far beyond its intended proportions, a practice refined and led mainly by the big banks.

 

Currently, the number of contracts on the COMEX represents 300 times as much paper gold as there is physical metal in the COMEX vaults. Moreover, this number has ballooned at a faster pace over the past two years or so. The 300:1 ratio of contracts to physical ounces is propped by powerful restrictions. The COMEX forbids delivery of gold on the ramps to satisfy a gold contract, under threat of banning the party from participation and entry in the door. Almost nobody takes actual delivery of their metal, except for the big Wall Street banks which steal gold from other depositors. These banks also routinely rig the windows to enable removal of investor gold in the GLD Exchange Traded Fund, and silver from the similar SLV fund. Imagine a gold futures contract with no delivery possible. How absurd! But it has been the reality since June 2012.

 

The situation is perhaps even more frightening in the London Bullion Market Assn (LBMA). This market sees $trillions worth of gold trades every day. The activity is truly baffling. On individual trading days, more gold changes hands within contract trading (paper shuffling) across the London market than all the available gold in the world. Yet no metal moves anywhere, in a grand charade. These are merely paper transactions, with almost no actual metal ever in movement. The staggering leverage and dilution should not make any sense to the rational observer. However, in sharp contrast, the Eastern nations are accumulating gold in large volume.

 

GOLD & SILVER PRICE REVERSALS

The gold reaction to the Shanghai market development has been muted. But a powerful reversal is in progress, which should be impossible to halt or to obstruct. An unsual pattern shows itself in an upward bias Cup & Handle toward a reversal, where the $1300 level is well defended.  – Jim Willie, Silver Doctors

 

The Final Battle Between Paper And Physical Gold Is Underway – So, Where Will You Stand?

The question is, will you sit by and let the opportunity to acquire real money, GOLD, for you and your family  pass you by?  The time is coming when you won't be able to afford a gram, not to mention an ounce at any price.  The clock is ticking. Where will you stand? You will not find a better quality, nor a better price, apples for apples, of Gold bullion, than you will at Karatbars.  The enclosed video will help you see and understand this fact.  Join the thousands of people around the world, who are securing their families with Karatbars GOLD.  Open your FREE Gold Savings Account, today.  Thank you for your time and attention, and please share this article with those, whom you love and care about.  I wish you much success.

What Businesses can Gain from Mobile Marketing

What Businesses can Gain from Mobile Marketing

Marketing and advertising have truly evolved over the years. We have embraced ads on the television, radio and even in print media for more than a decade. The advent of the Internet has paved the way to new marketing campaigns, one of them being a mobile marketing. Because mobile gadgets are the hype today, there is no denying that mobile marketing is here to stay as more cost-effective way of advertising one's business.

Almost all of us have a mobile gadget or two. We often have our phones and other wireless mobile devices with us on a daily basis. This is a good opportunity for businesses to take advantage of mobile marketing. There are key benefits business owners can reap and enjoy.

The following are some examples that would get you motivated to pay attention to mobile marketing.

Immediacy. As a business owner or marketer, one thing you will love about mobile marketing is its immediate reach to your prospective consumers and clients. There is a guarantee that they will be able to receive the ads or the message within seconds in their mobile devices. For instance, sending an SMS message to your recipient is fast. This equates to your consumers getting your message faster than a blink of an eye, not to mention creating a mobile campaign is easy.

Cost effective. Marketing has never been this cheap. Traditional modes of marketing require a business owner to invest thousands of dollars just to create a few seconds of radio or TV commercials. The amount of money that goes with the printing of brochures, tarps and the like is probably within the thousands. With mobile marketing, there is no need to shell out this much. Mobile marketing requires you to invest a fraction of what you would spend in traditional marketing campaigns. You'd end up saving money while making the most of a possible global marketing scheme.

Higher reach. Billions of people around the globe have a mobile gadget or two. This also means that you could be able to reach out to those people within a single mobile marketing campaign. A successful mobile marketing campaign will allow businesses to be able to reach out to millions of customers in a blink of an eye at a fraction of what they would spend for advertising. Why limit your marketing campaign to just around the neighborhood when you can reach out to potential customers from all over the world?

There are still other key benefits you can enjoy if you shift your marketing efforts to mobile marketing. With the right campaign and technology applied, your success is guaranteed.

GOLD IS MONEY! Can We Really Afford To Continue To Believe The LIES?

Gold Manipulation In The U.S. Goes Back To 1987 When Greenspan Made It Fed Policy To Protect The Stock Markets

                                        photo Gold-is-money- JP Morgan_zpsn430oznz.jpg

JP Morgan said, " Gold Is Money; Everything Else Is Credit. And once you realize this, you will never be poor again!"  Ever since the Federal government took the U.S. off he gold standard in 1971, political and financial agencies have tried their best to program the American people to believe that gold has no monetary value.  This of course was done to ensure trust and confidence in the fiat Federal Reserve Note, and to propagate the illusion that debt was money, which allowed for a continued expansion of both the currency and government spending.

If there ever was an example for just how much power the simple yellow metal known as gold holds in the world's financial system, all one has to do is look at the depth and breadth that manipulation over its price has been used by Western central banks.  And with the revelations two weeks ago of Deutsche Bank finally admitting that not only they, but many bullion banks conspired to hold down gold prices, a shocking revelation by well known journalist F. William Engdahl sheds new light in just how far down the rabbit hole gold price suppression goes. 

"The first time I came across evidence that select Wall Street and other major international banks, in cooperation with the Federal Reserve, were deliberately suppressing the world gold price was in the aftermath of the global stock market crash of October, 1987. That was when the Dow Jones stock index lost 23% in one day," the researcher narrates. 

Indeed, on October 19, 1987, the United States faced a severe stock market crash: within one day — the notorious "Black Monday" — the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) swiftly lost 508 points. The crash prompted deep concerns regarding apparent inefficiency of the US' monetary system. 

"John Crudele, an exceptionally persistent financial journalist with The New York Post and John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics and an exceptional economist, informed me at the time of the gold manipulation reports," Engdahl continues. 

"The reason for the fix, which then-Fed chief Alan Greenspan reportedly orchestrated, was to prevent a stampede by panicked investors out of risky stocks and bonds into gold. Had gold profited from the stock panic, it could well have been an early end to the dollar system. It worked then to prevent a gold rise," the researcher underscores. – Sputnik News

The Elites, and Central Banks Buying GOLD At Record Levels – Do You Think That Just Might Be A CLUE?

Earlier today, SRS Rocco published an article on how gold bullion sales for April at the U.S. Mint are up 300% from the same month just a year ago, and this is just in the first three weeks of the month.

The telltale sign that something isn’t right in the financial industry is a surge in Gold Eagle sales.  Last year, total Gold Eagle sales for April equaled 29,500 oz.  However, in just the first three weeks of April this year, Gold Eagle sales have reached 87,500.  This is three times last years figures and we still have another week remaining in the month:

Gold Eagle Sales For April 2016 photo Gold-Eagle-Sales-April-2015-vs-2016_zpslkqa9eex.png

But purchases from the U.S. Mint don't tell the whole story.  According to analyst and economist Jim Rickards this week, central banks as well as elites are purchasing their own gold stashes at record levels, in preparation for the fourth potential collapse of the global financial system in the past 100 years.

Countries are also acquiring gold in advance of a collapse of the international monetary system. The system has collapsed three times in the past century. Each time, major financial powers came together to write new rules. 

This happened at Genoa in 1922, Bretton Woods in 1944, and the Smithsonian Institution in 1971.  The international monetary system has a shelf life of about 30 years. 

It has been 30 years since the Louvre Accord (an upgrade to the Smithsonian Agreement). This does not mean the system will collapse tomorrow, but no one should be surprised if it does. When the financial powers next convene to reform the system, there will be no appetite for the dollar’s exorbitant privilege. 

The Chinese yuan and Russia ruble are not true reserve currencies. The only feasible benchmarks for a new system are the IMF’s world money, called special drawing rights, and gold. 

Critics claim there is not enough gold to support the financial system. That’s nonsense. There is always enough gold, it’s just a matter of price. 

Based on the M1 money supplies of China, the eurozone, and the US, and with 40pc gold backing, the implied non-deflationary price of gold is $10,000 per ounce. 

At that price, a stable gold-backed monetary system could be sustained.  When it comes to monetary elites, watch what they do, not what they say. 

While elites disparage gold at every opportunity, they are buying it, hoarding it, and preparing for the day when one’s gold determines one’s seat at the table of systemic reform. 

Just how much of the house do you need to see BURNING before you seek safety for you and your family?  Don't you think it’s past time to claim your seat with an asset allocation to physical gold? – Open your FREE GOLD Savings Account  with KARATBARS to protect your family's economy, and let us help you get started, TODAY!  Go to: http://www.thegoldservants.com

How Blogging Can Help Market Your Business

How Blogging Can Help Market Your Business

Now that blogging has become so popular among everyone from the novice writer to the most experienced journalist, businesses are starting to take notice. A well-written and frequently updated blog can help market almost any type of business. Blogging can help target readers who are interested in a company’s product or service and businesses can keep track of what their readers are looking for through blogging.

In addition, blogging can help link together companies that complement each other very easily.

There is a lot of talk about blogging. Some feel that blogging is just a passing fad, but others feel it is just the beginning. Some business analysts feel that blogging does not significantly help a business market the company. Many businesses feel that this is not so. Blogging can be a beneficial way to market a business, build an audience and help link other companies together.

Blogging can help almost any business expose their readers to their services and products. Sometimes with new products, a blog can create interest in something new. Blogging is helpful because it can talk in depth about the product, and it can also give step-by-step instructions on how a certain product can be used.

A reader, who is interested in the product after reading about it on a blog, will be more inclined to research similar products on the Internet. This can lead to a more informed consumer and can save a consumer time when shopping or researching a new product. In turn, a company may save time because customers who have read the blog are already informed about the product. These customers can also read reviews on these products and services, which can be very helpful in the buying process.

Another great thing about companies using a blog for their products and services is that a blog enables the company and the customer to communicate effectively. A customer can read the blog and comment on it right away. This provides good feedback to the company and they can know what the customers want. Usually blogs will provide places for readers to leave their comments or send emails to the writer. This is a good marketing tool for businesses. People enjoy communicating about products and services that they have had good or bad experiences with and blogging provided the opportunity to do so.

Blogs can also help market a business because it will be included in search engines. When people enter certain keywords, blogs that contain those words will show up. When blogs are updated frequently, search engines can provide your company with a lot of hits. This can lead to many people looking at the company’s blog who might not otherwise have done so.

When companies use blogs, it also has the ability to create a sensation around a product and influence public opinion. This is an excellent tool for companies to use. Because of the huge popularity of blogging, this can be a more effective tool than some forms of advertising. Readers are more likely to share interesting blogs with their friends and this can help companies get the word out about their product.

Another way blogging can help market a business is that blogs often help a company position itself as a leader in a certain field. This means that those who blog can show their expertise about certain subjects and then update this information on a regular basis. 

Blogging can help generate leads and send a positive message about your company without spending a lot of money for advertising. Readers can look at these blogs and know that they are dealing with a quality company.

Companies also use blogs to help network with other companies that complement their business. This is beneficial because they can easily share their links and readers will see all of the blogs that relate to what they are searching for on the Internet. Link swapping is often used in blogging, especially with businesses.

Blogging is proving to be a beneficial marketing tool for businesses all over the world. While it’s a fairly new way for companies and customers to communicate with each other, blogging provides an immediate and unique form of advertising for the company. Customers are able to read and research products and services through blogging and companies can better understand what their customers want.

See You At The Top

See you at the top of what?

We hear it said by people in Network Marketing all the time, "See you at the top!" Top of what? A mountain, a building, life, what? We all know what they mean but does it ever happen? Are they hollow words?

How many network marketing companies have you joined looking for the big hit? I am sure you have heard this before but I'll say it again, the big hit formula has to be in place for you to get the big hit? Only when you find a company that you like and can talk to others about will you rise to the top in the company. Passion is one of the ingredients that motivates anyone to become great, thus when they have passion they will move mountains to get to the goal.  Formula: Passion + Feelings + Emotions = Big Hit

So, you are probably asking "How do I find a company that I have passion for?" It's easy! We as human beings are driven by feelings and emotions and when things feel right we become emotionally invested. In looking for a company we need to find one that emotionally charges us up, and we have good feelings. 

It's like falling in love with your significant other. Are you in love, or in love with being in love? Are you in your network marketing company because someone else presented it to you and you fell in love with it because someone else was in love with it, or are you in love with it because it turns you on all the time?

I recently found a new company that totally turned me on and I fell in love with it. To top it off, when I told my wife about it she fell in love with it, [My wife has never liked any network marketing company I have ever been with, she just tolerates them. But she loves to cash the checks they generate.] This new company has me excited all the time, and its easy to talk to others about. 

When you look for a company that will be your guide to riches, you want one that you can easily talk to others about. If you find any hesitation about presenting your product you are in love with being in love, and not in love with the company. It's like a movie you have recently seen that you like, how easy is it to recommend to others? But if you don't like the movie you will not recommend it or never mention it. 

How do you know when you find the right company? Well as I said it's, emotion and feelings, that will be an indicator. But here is another way to tell. It's like the new company I was telling you about, I kept looking at the company and saying to myself,"There is no way that this pay plan can be so lucrative." "How long can this company be around paying out so much money?" And so it goes, I kept asking all these silly questions trying to kill the opportunity. I was getting in my own way!

Finally, It dawned on me, I was trying to remove a path to get to the top. I was doing what many people do, getting in my own way, and finding reasons why my high emotional levels we false. It's like a love affair with one foot out the door. I was looking for a reason why it was not going to work, and as long as that goes on it will never work.

Finally, I just said, "If the the worse happens, Oh well!" So I joined and am having a ball! It's just fun!

Ariving at the top only happens when the top is in sight, when you can actually see the path. Remember, we do things based on feeling and emotions and when we are emotionally charged up about what we do we will soon have the vision and image of how to get to the top. Vision is what you are able to see in your minds eye. You know that you are on the path and will not waiver from it. This article is written through a program that was developed by a friend of mine, and when he got the vision for Markethive he never wavered until it came to reality. He could see it in his minds eye.

So when people say, "see you at the top" I always ask the question "have you seen the path to get there in your minds eye?" Do you know how to get there? I personally want to know, if you know! As I have written in this article, you will know based on your feelings and emotions about what you are planning on doing. Your internal guide is, how do you feel emotionally. 

By the way if you want to know the company that I am so charged up about  click here and take a look.
