The Tipping Point

Have you ever heard of the phrase “the tipping point”?  If you’re working from home, marketing on the Internet, or a member of a network marketing company that phrase, or concept, may be something you already know about. If not, let me explain. 
 
A tipping point is the magic moment when an idea, a trend, or a social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.

The Tipping Point is also a book by Malcolm Gladwell. (If you haven’t read it, I suggest you do.) Gladwell writes about epidemics and how they get started. Typically, when we think about an epidemic, we don’t usually think about it outside the context of health issues. However, Gladwell uses the example of Hush Puppies (no, not those tasty round things you usually get with a fish fry) to explain how an epidemic can get started. 

He goes on to explain that Wolverine, the company that manufactures the Hush Puppy shoes, was struggling with sales, when a fashion designer, looking to be different (thinking outside the box), saw the shoes some young kids were wearing, and thought they would be a good fit for his models to wear during a fashion shoot.

Little did he know that the shoes would be a bigger hit than his clothes. As it turned out, Hush Puppy sales exploded to epidemic proportions. Who knew that the shoes a couple of young kids were wearing would turn a company, like Wolverine, around.

That fashion designer was looking to be different, if only to sell his clothes. In his mind, he probably thought the shoes would never get noticed. However, it had the reverse effect. People noticed! They liked what they saw, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So how can we relate the story of Hush Puppies to a home business? Well, we might start by asking some additional questions, like are you getting the word out? Are you doing business differently to stand out from everyone else? Are you reaching outside the box, or are you following the ways of the so-called “guru”? Do people take notice of what you’re doing?

I understand that getting the word out is one of the first steps on your path to success. If nobody knows you’re in business, how can you make any money, right? I get that! But many people go about it the wrong way, or listen to the wrong people, and they jump from system to system, or program to program trying find something that will produce a cash flow. However, they usually wind up spending more than they make. Take it from me, I’ve been there and done that!

If you could change your way of doing business, and start using a system that integrates a plethora of inbound marketing tools, would you? If you answered yes, thinking outside the box is a great place to start. It will also get people to take notice, just like in the Hush Puppy story.

The system I’m referring to is called MarketHive. MarketHive has state-of-the-art tools like a blogging platform, email auto-responders, lead capture pages, SEO platform, social media broadcasting, lead management platform, and much more. And, IT’S FREE!!

MarketHive is new to the world of Internet marketing, and in my humble opinion, is on the verge of a tipping point. Remember, the magic moment when an idea, a trend, or a social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. That’s why I mention thinking outside the box. Being a part of an epidemic does not come along too often; but with the help of the MarketHive Alpha Founder’s, I’m confident this is going to be one!

We never know how far our word, or idea, will spread, but we have to start by getting the word out. We all know one thing for sure, if we don’t start, nobody will ever see, or hear about, what we’re doing.

So let’s get started by thinking outside the box! Let’s all become a part of this Internet epidemic!

Vemma Leads

Vemma Leads, Are You Buying Them?

Vemma’s® unique global wellness philosophy delivers a results driven product. Vemma® is an established, family-owned company with ten’s of thousands of satisfied monthly consumers, and world class customer service.

Vemma® is an excellent company, but like many other MLM or Networking companies the structure is set up to create huge costs on the distributors and little on the company. These companies try to let the individuals think that they are in their own business, then encourage them to spend their own money in marketing to attract their own customers. This forces the so called “new business owner” to spend their own money for leads or reverse marketing systems in hopes of bringing in new distributors. Throughout this whole process the marketing cost for Vemma® is minimal.

Also companies like Vemma® are not equipped to sell to the end user (the person consuming the products), but expect the distributor to do the job for them. This is very difficult since advertising and marketing can be very expensive. The traditional way of acquiring customers is to purchase leads. The independent reps then have to cold call the leads, and try to get people interested in their company or products. Another strategy is to bring in friends and family to the business and hopefully they will do the same. The end result of these combined strategies is rejection and a very small percentage of people signing up. If these particular strategies worked the majority of people entering a MLM or network marketing business would be highly successful. Instead they are not!

Buy Customers Not Vemma Leads?

There is a new business model that eliminates all of the excessive expense and allows its business affiliates to purchase customers, individuals that are consuming the products. When purchasing a customer incentive lead the business affiliate begins to derive commissions from that customer right away. No MLM or network marketing company is allowed to sell directly to the consumer; products must go through the company’s independent distributors. The company bears the expense of customer acquisition by having mechanisms in place that sell to the customer. The company then passes the customer onto their business affiliates for considerably less than the cost of a sold lead.

Although Vemma® and many other MLM or Network Marketing Companies have good products their systems are usually lacking structure, with regards to enabling their distributors to create substantial revenue. If you would like to learn about buying customers instead of leads, I would like to invite you to a live online meeting. You can hear and see a presentation on how the system works. If you’re interested, please go to http://homebusiness.healthfulchoice.com and sign up. You will receive an email with the password to get into our Saturday meeting.

If you have any desire to have a successful Internet business, DO NOT pass up this opportunity. The presentation is free and informative! I have looked at many different business models, but I have never seen one as user friendly as this before. This business model surely is for the “little guy”. If you’re still interested after attending the meeting, please feel free to contact me. I will explain this opportunity to you further.

SEO

Getting your web site noticed on Google does not take a degree in marketing or search engine optimization. However, it does take some effort on your part. Google does not just go out, find your site and rank it in the number one position just because it looks great. As a matter of fact, a lot of great looking web sites will never be found when doing searches.

One means of search engine optimization (SEO) that works really well is blog posting. Although exceptional results are achievable, consistency is the key. You must post to your blog on a consistent basis, daily works best. That said, once you’ve reached that targeted position on Google (for your keyword), posting once a week seems to maintain the position you have achieved.

According to Scott Van Achte, Senior SEO at StepForth Web Marketing Inc., “an established blog that is updated regularly gets spidered by Google often, and increases the chances of new search rankings considerably. I have seen multiple situations where regularly updated blogs wind up ranking #1 in Google for relevant phrases literally within a couple hours of posting. It usually takes a well established web site and blog to make this happen, but there is big potential if you do things the right way.” [1]

What does posting to a blog have to do with getting your web site to the top of Google?

First and foremost, or a least the way I see it, is back links. A well written blog, not only may rank well, but will also get you free one way links to your web site. Individuals reading your blog may add a link to their blog, and if you have strategically placed a link to your web site within your post, you will get an additional link back to your web site. Since Google takes back links into consideration when choosing which sites to rank higher than others, back links play an important part.

Not only will the additional back links increase your ranking on Google, they can also produce more traffic to your web site. People reading a well written article tend to click on the link to learn more. A lot of visitors will either return to your site to get additional information, or send the link to a friend or family member they know has been looking for the information you are providing.

Blogs are a great resource when it comes to SEO, and blogs can cover a plethora of industries. Blogs do not have to take a lot of time, once they are setup, and the initial postings have been put in place.

There are a lot of ways to generate posts. However, one of the easiest, that I’ve found, is to comment on articles that I’ve read. This form of editorializing works really well, as long as you give credit to the original author. It’s also a great way for someone new at blog posting to get started.

So find an article, and write a editorial, or comment, about that article. Getting started is the hardest part, but everyone has to take that first step. Start increasing your web site ranking today. Really, search engine optimization is not that difficult.

Paying with Bitcoin: What You Need to Know

Paying with Bitcoin: What You Need to Know


Image Source

Cryptocurrency, especially Bitcoin, continues to rise in popularity despite its value’s volatility recently; and if you are looking to use bitcoin to pay for things, you have to take due diligence in knowing how to do it, where you can spend bitcoins, and what the risks and advantages are.

How do you pay with bitcoin?

First, you need a bitcoin wallet. There are free bitcoin wallets available for smartphones and all major operating systems. Just like with a physical wallet, you must always secure it – this means being careful with online services, putting backup and encryption, and putting just small amounts in it for everyday use.

What are the advantages?

  • Anonymity. Your purchases are discrete with bitcoin, which means they are never associated with your personal identity. In fact, the bitcoin address generated is different for every purchase you make.
  • Low Transaction Fees. Since there is still no government involvement in bitcoin transactions at this point, the costs of transacting are very low.
  • Mobile. Since paying with bitcoin can be done using an app on your mobile phone, you can pay for our purchases anywhere you are as long as you have internet access.
  • No interruptions. Since the bitcoin system is purely peer-to-peer, it is void of involvement of banks, financial institutions, and the government.
  • No Sales Taxes. One major advantage of paying with bitcoin is that no sales taxes are added in your purchases since there are no third parties identify or track them.

What are the risks?

One thing that you need to understand is that bitcoin, no matter how popular it has become at this point, is still experimental. Getting into bitcoin now can mean that you have to deal with the growing pains as it still at the stage in which it is still improving and such improvements may bring about new challenges.

Bitcoin price very volatile. You should look at bitcoin as a high risk asset and you must not keep your savings with bitcoin at this point.

You must adopt good practices in protecting your privacy as bitcoin is not entirely anonymous. Your identity behind the bitcoin address you’re using may be anonymous, but transactions and balances in your address can be seen by anyone.

Bitcoin payments cannot be reversed, so only transact with people you trust and business that have already established their reputation. Beware of scams, fake ICOS, and fraudulent activities.

Colorado State Cracks Down on Unregulated Cryptocurrency Businesses

Colorado State Cracks Down on Unregulated Cryptocurrency Businesses

Colorado's state Division of Securities issued a cessation order to four cryptocurrency firms for issuing unregistered securities through Initial Coin Offerings (ICO). So far, the state's Securities Commissioner has issued cease and desist orders to twelve ICOs for the same offense.

Four Cryptocurrency Companies Ordered to Stop Unregistered ICOs

According to a publication on the regulator's website, the State's Division of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) instituted an “ICO Task Force” in May to probe possible fraudulent projects aimed at cryptocurrency investors. These recent orders issued to Bitcoin Investments, Limited, Prisma, PinkDate, and Clear Shop Vision Limited are based on the findings of the ICO Task Force.

The four firms are allegedly offering unregistered securities to citizens of the state. In the publication, the securities regulator highlights the alleged fraudulent activities of the four companies.

The Division alleges that the companies offer an unrealistic return on investments ranging from 27% to 95%. Through their separate ICOs namely DB Token ICO (Bitcoin Investments, Ltd), PinkDate ICO, Prismacoin, and ORC Token (Clear Shop Vision Ltd), these companies solicited investment from Colorado citizens despite not being registered with the State's Division of Security.

Bitcoin Investments, Ltd allegedly offers 1% daily returns on investment. The company also claims that in 2017 investors received an average of 95% return on their registered investments.

PinkDate allegedly sought to raise $5 million through the sale of its cryptocurrency. The company did not disclose its business address or employees.

In the case of Prisma, the company purportedly operated an arbitrage and lending platform. Investors had to buy the company's virtual currency – PrismaCoin to use the platform. The firm promises investors returns of up to 27%.

For Clear Shop Vision, the division claims that the company has issued three unregistered ICOs since June.

On receipt of the orders, the cryptocurrency companies are to immediately stop all operations that violate the state's Securities Act, including fraud and issuing unregistered securities.

State Regulatory Agencies Tackle Fraudulent Cryptocurrency Activities

On the Federal level, the US SEC is not stepping down its enforcement efforts against illegal cryptocurrency schemes. State securities regulatory agencies are also making efforts to protect their citizens against fraudulent cryptocurrency investments.

Earlier in the week, the Texas State Securities Board filed a cease and desist order against AWS Mining company for allegedly selling unregistered securities. According to the regulator, the mining company promised investors a 200% return on funds invested in cryptocurrency mining power contracts.

In October, the Commissioner of North Dakota's Securities Department issued a cease and desist order against Crystal Token, Advertiza Holdings (Pty) Ltd, and Life Cross Coin. These three virtual currency firms allegedly offered fraudulent and unregistered securities through Initial Coin Offerings.
