The affiliate mentality

Two affiliates met and were talking at Affiliate Summit.

'Guess what,' says the first affiliate, 'I met this gorgeous blonde at the last Affiliate Summit.. and she was single too.. 'What did you do ?' says the other affiliate.

'Well, I invited her over to my place, we had a couple of drinks, we got into the mood and then she suddenly asked me to take all her clothes off !' ..... 'You’re kidding me!' says the second affiliate.

'Nope' says affiliate one. 'I took her miniskirt off, and then I lifted her up and put her on my desk, next to my new laptop.'

'Really?' asked the affiliate. 'You got a new laptop?'

Eeeeeeeesh ...... This is the reason why most of us are single ... no focus !

Now what do online advertisers and crack users have in common? Both are locked in a disastrous end game, a downward spiral leading to certain doom according to Bryan and Jeffrey Eisenberg from Future Now.

Most of us are addicts when it comes into this field and I know a lot more guys in the same mould. We share the same symptoms of always getting a 'high' when making a big sale and before you know, you are already addicted to rankings and traffic. Normal people get a thrill, to put it mildly from a good buy at the mall... but I know of people who virtually get an orgasm when they make a great sale or an ad buy.. they are now conviniently branded as Crackvertisers!

The symptoms are you check traffic stats at least 20 times a day, use Extreme Tracking so you can identify referrals to each page and as they come in. If it's down you go into sweats and can't function... basically on a manic high ... According to Bryan and Jeffrey Eisenberg's Crackvertiser's start innocently enough, harnessing free search result referrals as a moneymaking tool. It's all about traffic. The crackvertiser needs progressively higher traffic volumes to sustain the sales levels. If that traffic level drops, or if conversion rates fluctuate or fall, crackvertisers work themselves into a panic trying to devise ways to bring traffic levels back up. In both cases, a free first taste leads to exhilaration, and then a desire for more. The story for crack addicts is sad, straightforward and severe.

So relax.... go out there and have some fun !

Procrastination and happiness

Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases, and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. If you wait until all the lights are "green" before you leave home, you'll never get started on your trip to the top.

As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect.

Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. Making mistakes, getting it almost right, and experimenting to see what happens are all part of the process of eventually getting it right.

If you're a car salesman, and someone says "This is a terrible car, I'm not buying it," it doesn't mean they hate you. They just don't like your product. I think that's a mistake a lot of people make.. they're so tied to their act that they take everything personally.

The really happy people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination, those who find satisfaction in doing the job at hand.

They're full of eagerness, zest and productivity.

The old saying that “success breeds success” has something to it.

It's that feeling of confidence, that can banish negativity and procrastination and get you going the right way...

Jest a while

PayPal payments.. a note for users

Just a short note of caution for those who use PayPal… Although the below report is a bit out of date, it is advisable users just check for similar such reports prior to signing up...

" According to Internet-monitoring Company Netcraft, a security flaw on PayPal's site allowed hackers to steal credit card information from PayPal users. The vulnerability, first publicly announced on Friday, involved what is known as a cross-scripting attack. Those targeted by the attack received an e-mail, purporting to be from PayPal, that directed them to a special URL on the PayPal servers Relevant Products/Services from HP. At that page, they encountered an official-sounding notice. "Your account is currently disabled," it reportedly read, "because we think it has been accessed by a third party. You will now be redirected to the Resolution Center." Users were then taken to a non-PayPal server in South Korea, with a fake log-in page designed to capture private information -- including credit card and Social Security numbers. Users were requested at that site to remove any limits on funds being removed from their accounts. PayPal said that it has fixed the flaw and has gotten the Korean server shut down. PayPal also said that it was not clear how many people -- if any at all -- had been duped. PayPal does warn its users to enter their user names and passwords only on PayPal pages that begin with the following URL: https://www.paypal.com/. It also says that its users should never log in to PayPal from a link in an e-mail "

Unfortunately, it just is not PayPal’s fault…. It just is that the hackers are one on top or one step ahead...

So, basically try and opt in receiving cheques by mail, bank transfers with your clients, it may be slow and cumbersome but there are better chances of receiving the amount and less chances of the amount being hacked...

Now, this is just not PayPal’s problem alone... the other also face it, but since they share a lot less limelight than PayPal, they have a slighter edge ...

However, for those whose who clear their checks on a regular basis, there shouldn’t be much cause for concern as any discrepancy is immediately would be immediately identified by you...

Basically, keep regular tabs on your PayPal inflows and outflows ...

Paid Online Surveys And Free Surveys

Paid surveys are generally conducted by market research firms.

Just in the United States alone, companies spend over "who-knows-how-much" amount dollars a year on consumer research and surveys. Market research companies are hired to test their advertisements or do research so that they know the best way to advertise to certain markets. These market research firms have large panels of people they use to conduct their studies. They do their research through having people test the products, mystery shoppers, and paid surveys.

Market research companies, doing the surveys are willing to pay you to visit their place of business, and act like a normal patron. These companies will pay you just to spend a couple of hours browsing, because they need an honest opinion from an everyday consumer on how well their facilities are doing. These market research companies are willing to pay people good money (up to $50 an hour) to everyday people for their honest opinion, and a lot of people are not aware of this.

Although most of these paid surveys only pay a small amount of money, usually between $1 and $15, some rare ones may pay up to $50, but just rare.It usually takes about fifteen minutes to complete. Some people have made a significant amount of money simply taking paid surveys. The rewards are usually in forms of points, later you can redeem points with cash(check), gift cards, common daily products. Many website also reward sweepstake entries to $10-$5000 drawings.However the latter is not a reliable way of steady earning. The hardest part is finding and sorting through all the research websites out there

Paid surveys are usually taken online, and less commonly through postal methods. Several companies also send assignments right to your email inbox. You can read and decide whether you would like to accept it or not. In many product test surveys, they also provide free products for you through mailing, one should test for a while then complete a paper or online survey to receive credits. Many websites exist where one can input certain characteristics about themselves, which is kept confidential and be emailed relevant surveys according to ages, genders, geological residents, jobs, gross household incomes etc., and be paid for these surveys

Generally, people used paid surveys is mainly for those who need some part-time income, while they are searching for a job, or just as pocket money. Did you know that you can easily make an extra $300 to $1,000 a month, good money filling out online surveys sitting at home in your pajamas?

If you are in need of some part time work, answering paid online surveys may well be the answer! With flexible short hours and very good pay, it offers a fun and an interesting working environment. A lot of people actually make a nice living from home, working mostly online, and generally, most of them take the easy way out. They focus only on get paid to take online surveys and most of them make anywhere around $5 to $150 per survey. Besides, the get paid to take phone surveys also earns them as much as $120 an hour.

Please note that these rates depend from market research company to company, and the time factor in which they need results.. On an average the going rates are half the quoted figures. But there are cases, in fact more than a few who have recieved these high rates

The other common problem with paid surveys is that they are being marketed by unscrupulous individuals as a source of easy money. It is not uncommon to see advertisements promising $75 an hour or more in potential earnings. Although this is useless propaganda, it cannot be said that paid surveys cannot be counted as a source of an online income. They do provide a reasonable second income and a good work from home opportunity. But it is advisable to enter this line of work with realistic expectations.

If you are having intentions of being able to retire by taking online surveys - forget it...as it will never happen. Although there are a lot of sites out there advertising that you can make thousands of dollars per week or make $50 plus dollars and hour for taking online surveys, any desire of earning huge amounts of money for minimal amount of work is likely to end in disappointment. In most cases, it doesn't really matter where you live, or who you are and if you are interested you can do it too. But the chances of making $10,000+ every month is a little far fetched and it is highly doubtful, you can make that amount.

So, in addition to the extra $400 plus a month for filling their online surveys, they also pay a 75% ($23.50) affiliate commission on every sale, and their conversion ratio is off the charts. Many of their affiliates average insane conversion ratios of 15-30% or higher! That's 1 sale for every 4-8 visitors ... or earnings of over $3 per click. You can't make money with these kind of numbers, even paying high CPCs at Overture, Google, etc.

Self help guides for depression ?

Depression?

What is this guy going on about depression.

I get it when I miss my evening swig.

Why the hell are they making such a hue and cry about it ?

Unfortunately, depression has become a common condition with most people nowadays.

If you, or a loved one has battled depression, you undoubtedly wish that you could find some remedy that keeps that pit of darkness far away, forever.

But suppose that wish were the very thing that is stopping you from achieving that dream, a dream that in reality is you ?

Although easy to overcome through self help methods, it requires a certain amount of discipline from the person suffering from depression.

In most cases, people having depression are victims to other people's manipulations, or in other words, they are not in a mental condition to cope with the day to day issues at play.

Basically, it all begins with the fact that there's too much mental telepathy at work these days.

Just imagine how much easier it would be if everyone simply stated what they wanted.

Rather than making grand assumptions about other people's motives, we might actually start getting our needs met.

Another problem is the media.

That is to say we have become to immersed in it - a virtual reality condition.

Unfortunately majority of the decisions today are made based on television reports, something quite unthinkable.

And after the glitter fades, beneath the leather and lace, we're just scared, trying to learn how to love, amid the gaudy after images of popping flashbulbs.

No wonder, there is too much stimulation in our culture.

Finally, when darkness falls, we crouch naked and are alone in our slack, snuffling with fear, and with a fistful of pills to keep us company.

Sometimes, I wonder why people cope up with all this. This just makes their minds a devils' workshop.

Some of the common characteristics of depression is the failure, to comprehend realities, dwelling on past miseries and most of all gaining satisfaction from it. As a result, they have to cope up with all this suffering, when there is nothing, and if at all there is any, it should only be flushed down a toilet.

On the alternate side, there is this innate fear that something bad might happen to people whom you like.

Of course, there are so many versions to this.

It becomes obvious when you suddenly realise you don't seem to be giving too much importance to your appearance, dressing, or worst of all your surroundings. You tend to become totally disorganised and most of all you are least unconcerned by it.

Is there a self help solution?

Yes !

But it takes some time and a bottle of common sense. I say this so as to shake off the system or supporters of such a system.

You will soon come to realise that your assumptions were right, there is really a social problem out there. Most of us go through this phase, but very few admit it.

You can use work out a self help strategy to end your battle with depression. You can also try and obtain this Depression self help Guide

It highlights an unique self help depression lesson for long-term recovery from depression. It describes the feelings associated with depression and how we self-sabotage ourselves.

Anyway as a closing note

What is thingy called depression ?

Here have a swig at this and perhaps within a few minutes you are good as new !!

These too many swigs and too many pills must stop.

Anyway as a closing note

Mate - I didn't get you... what is thingy called depression ?
