online-marketing-solutions

Most if us are incredibly comfortable in our own homes. It is where all of our comforts are kept. Part of the daily grind of a job is having to leave the home. The task is much more difficult if you have children to consider. Many of us would love to be able to work from home. We are more comfortable and can be much more productive. However, very few regular jobs offer this type of flexibility. They want employees on site where they can be watched and monitored.

If you would like to make a living working from home, the affiliate marketing business could be the answer. If you have a computer, with internet access there is no reason your home office cannot become your new home business.

Affiliate marketing means that you work on behalf of another company. You helping to expand a company that already exists. This provides you with several advantages. First, your marketing brands or products that are already on the market. You don’t have to create new product and present it to the public. If the brands are fairly well known then attracting customers should not be too difficult. It is much easier to sell something that has an established reputation that break in with something new.

Second. The advertising of the product will already be taken care of. The main corporation will have some suggestions and equipment available to help advertise the product or product line. This can include pamphlets, catalogues or posters. They will also make samples available at no cost to you. This minimizes your investment so the risk is nothing. You just need to concentrate on selling the product and maximizing your earnings.

Third, Affiliate marketing can be done in the comfort of your own home. As long as you have adequate storage space for company product there is no reason you cannot set up shop in the comfort of your own home. You can put as much or as little into the venture as you like. You paid according to how well you perform. If you have an off month, it is reflected in your commission. You don’t have to worry about a boss coming down on you. How much you do is entirely up to you.

Finally, running this business venture from you home presents very little risk for you. You have the perfect location and you don’t need to invest any of your own money. Your also not subject to work are sales targets to break even. What you produce is what you are paid for.

Running an affiliate marketing business is hard work. You’ll want to make the most of your skills and talents and that means working some very long days. Don’t be fooled by affiliate marketing companies that promise the world for very little effort. You’ll have to work very hard promoting the products that you decide to sell. However, if you are willing to work hard and use all of your abilities, there is no reason why your affiliate marketing home business cannot be a huge success.

If you want to work from home then an affiliate marketing scheme is the perfect way. With minimal risk to you, you will be able to employ you skills to your own benefit. You’ll have to work very hard but there is everything to gain and very little to loose.

How Google AdSense Works

Just a blog post about Google AdSense for those new to online marketing

If you look at the Internet a few years back, you’ll see that advertising was done in a way that was very similar to other types of media like television, or actually, more like what you see in a newspaper.

You’d enter a site, and in some location you’d get to see a banner (often these were quite numerous and very large), which would present an ad for whatever company was paying for adds on your space.

But there was one problem with this kind of advertising. It really wasn’t exploiting the fact that the ads weren’t in some newspaper, but were instead presented over the Internet.

You’ve probably noticed a lot of things like this over the pages you’ve browsed. You’re looking at an on-line shop, looking for a watch but you get a banner that advertises a car.

While you might, at some later point want to buy a car, right now you’re looking for a watch and it would have surely been nice if the banner were advertising a watch, because then you would have probably clicked it.

Well that’s also what the folks at Google thought of, so they came up with a killer idea. This is knows as Google AdSense, and it’s known as a targeted advertising program

What you do (as an Online Marketer / web designer / website owner) is, instead of jumping through hoops to get some banner on your site that your visitors won’t even care about, is you just allocate some region of the screen.

You then sign up for the Google AdSense program, you insert a small snippet of code in your webpage and Google ensures that in the location you specify, a banner will appear, presenting adds relevant to the contents of your site.

It’s very easy for Google to do this because Google is a search engine company. It looks for the key words in your page, searches a database of websites to find the ones related to whatever is on your page and presto: a targeted ad.

You (the webmaster) get a fee for each visitor that clicks on an adsense banner on your site. Now that’s bound to happen more often then with a traditional banner because people are actually interested in what’s in that banner (otherwise, they wouldn’t be on your page would they?).

But, this also does wonders for the people who want to advertise. And it’s because of the same reason. The greatest thing about Google AdSense is that all the content in a banner is relevant.

This relevancy is the key to the programs success, and also the reason why everyone remains happy. The advertiser has a relevantly placed advert, the publisher earns money from their content and Google take their cut.

Of course, as always, Google has set some high standards for its AdSense program, in terms of looks and functionality. You can’t have more than two such banners on your website and Google only inserts text in these banners.

So an extra benefit is that AdSense advertising is a lot less obtrusive then regular advertising. But this also means you should position the banner better because it’s possible that visitors might miss it altogether.

So in the end, Google AdSense is an advertising program that is unique because the ads are relevant to the content on the site. Anyone that wants to advertise pays Google for it. Anyone who wants to place ads on their site does this through AdSense, getting paid by Google in the process.

All transactions are run through Google, and the advertisers and publishers get access to statistics which help them to understand and moderate the effectiveness of their campaign.

The whole process is elegant, simple and effective from anyone in the chain, from site visitors to advertisers, and it’s one of the reasons Google are known for their innovation and new thinking.

Success Secrets Still Valid

15 top motivational gurus were interviewed in 1997 by a top motivation speaker and this is what was  distilled from the interviews. The 8 Secrets to Success they all agreed upon.  These secrets are still good today and are as follows:

  1. Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life – In a society where people blame everything from their parents to the government for failure, those who don’t buy into this mentality or succumb to the “victim” thinking succeed. To blame something or somebody outside yourself is saying they have control of your life and not you. Someone else’s opinion of you doesn’t have to become your reality!!
  1. Live Your Life On Purpose – What separates motivational thinkers from the unsuccessful is that they believe they’re doing what they were put her to do. The difference between this and just living, is that the latter is just getting through the week with the least problems.  But when you live your life on purpose, your main concern is doing the job right.  For the entrepreneur this means finding a cause you believe in and building your business around it.
  1. Be Willing to Pay the Price – Be willing to pay the price for your dreams.  Wanting a big house, a luxury car, and a million dollars in the bank is all very nice, and everyone wants these things – but are you willing to pay the price to get them?  This is one of the major differences between the successful and unsuccessful.
  1. Stay Focused – Every day we’re bombarded with hundreds of tasks, phone calls, messages, and everyone competing for our time.  Focusing requires giving up something in the present because you are investing your time in something that will pay off big-time down the road.  Jack Canfield and Mark Hanson were turned by 30 publishers when they submitted the first “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book.  Instead of giving up, they stayed focused on their goal and did four or five interviews per day for radio, TV, and newspapers, for five days a week for a whole year.  Eventually, a small publisher decided to take a chance, and of course now it’s a best-seller that spawned an entire series that have sold more than 10 million copies.
  1. Become An Expert in Your Field  One striking factor all successful people have in common is how seriously they take their profession.  They strive to be the best at what they do, and do almost anything to improve.  If someone followed you around all day with a video camera at your business, would it be a tape you’d be proud of or embarrassed about?  Make the decision today to work at being the best in your field.  How? By finding out what the “best” in your field are doing, and do what they do.
  1. Write Out a Plan for Achieving Your Goals –  Write out an action plan/map for how you’re going to achieve your goals.  Trying to reach your goals without a plan is like trying to drive from Los Angeles to Chicago without a map.  A goal that isn’t written down is merely a wish or fantasy.
  1. Never Give Up – Never, never, never give up. When you’re fully committed to achieving your goal, giving up is not an option. You must be willing do whatever it takes to make it happen.  The power of perseverance is an awesome force.  As someone once said, “inch by inch it’s a cinch”.  Think of the lowly inchworm – if it pondered the length of the trip from start to finish before it started, it probably would never move. To a worm’s point-of-view,  the garden path must look like a trip to Mars. Never give up! Keep on going like the EverReady battery bunny, and pretty soon you’re there.
  1. Don’t Delay – Nobody knows how much time they have left to accomplish their dreams, and we must remember that we don’t have forever. The clock is ticking, and sooner or later your number comes up and you’re gone.  Successful achievers know this too, but they don’t view it as a “negative”.  Achievers use it to “spur them on”.  They go after what they want as energetically and as passionately as possible, for as long as they have.

I had a friend who used to say, “Today is a check – cash it!  Yesterday is an I.O.U. – forget it! Tomorrow is a promissory note, don’t  bank on it!”  I think that’s a pretty good summation of life, so go out there and cash in on that “today” check.

This plus dedication and persistence equals success

Get What You Want in 7 Powerful Steps

Following these 7 Steps daily with persistence and determination will lead to extraordinary results

You’re really getting tired of the 9 to 5 “rat race” and are thinking about chucking it for your own business.   All your friends keep telling you that you could do for yourself just what you’re doing now for your boss. Why shouldn’t you profit from your ideas instead of him?

You keep thinking about it because you know that you’ll never be financially where you want to be with a weekly paycheck, but what business would you start?

Before you pack in that weekly paycheck, this is the time to evaluate yourself and your future and it takes some real, down to heart honesty.  You want to change your life for the better, so let’s start.

Did you know that you have the potential to do and be anything you want?  People have different perceptions of the ideal life, and it ranges from obtaining financial freedom to as simple as owning a new pair of sneakers. Unfortunately, many fail to reach their aspirations because they can’t get a solid, clear picture in their mind of what they want.

Take the next few days and embark on a fact-finding journey that will be a life-changing experience.  Get a pad and pencil and start with this first step:

STEP 1 – KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT – Be specific in your passions, then focus all your efforts on that particular desire.

Those who always change their minds and those who give up easily when the going gets tough will never get anywhere.  If you’re a bit confused and aren’t sure what you really want in life answer these questions:

  1. What makes your heart beat with excitement?
  2. What makes you happy?
  3. What are you constantly thinking of day and night?
  4. What do you want to do with the rest of your life?
  5. What do you enjoy doing?
  6. What are your obsessions?
  7. What things make you jump for joy?

Write down all your possible answers to the above questions.  Write down everything, no matter how silly or unimportant it seems. Put all your desires on paper that answers any of the above questions.

When that’s done, go back and circle five to seven items that interest you the most.  Then evaluate and choose with your heart, not your mind, the one and only thing worthy to spend all your time and resources on and that brings out the best in you.

Now you may wind up with something like, “I want to play quarterback for the RAMS.”  If you’re over 20 I’d say that isn’t too viable a choice, but you could do something related to football or sports.  How about starting a sports publication?  Or perhaps a sporting goods retail business, sports memorabilia business, or even a gym could be the answer.  You can always read books and surf the net to help you in your search.

The most important thing to remember, no matter how “pie in the sky” it seems, is to USE YOUR HEART.  Others may disagree with you, but you should be firm with what you really want.  Others may offer comments or advice, but the final decision is always yours to make.  You should concentrate on what you want, not what others want.

Remember you only get one shot at living your life.   There are no replays and you don’t get to do it over.  You may not do it right, but at least you’re doing it.  Too many lives have been lived in quiet desperation waiting until – until they had saved a nest egg, until the children are out of school, until I retire, and they depart this life before “until” ever arrives.

Don’t go to sleep tonight without making a decision on WHAT YOU REALLY WANT IN LIFE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

Then spend a few days evaluating how to make it possible and make a living at it.  Begin living every day as if it were the last day you had – never leaving anything to be done next week, next month, or next year.

There will always be bills, things will always break down eventually and need replacing, there may be storms and earthquakes and repairs – but there will only be one life for you to live. It can’t be put on “hold”!

 The final outcome of your efforts may be in the future, but you’re living each day by taking steps toward that outcome.

New Optical Storage Technology that can store up to 360TB on a Quartz Disc the size of a coin!

Optical Data Storage Scientists squeeze 360TB on to a Quartz Disc. Data can now be stored forever.

Scientists from UoS Optoelectronics Research Center (ORC) have developed the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional (5D) digital data by femtosecond laser writing on nanostructured glass.

Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a major step forward in the development of digital data storage that is capable of surviving for billions of years. Using nanostructured glass, scientists from the University’s Optoelectronics Research Center (ORC) have developed the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional (5D) digital data by femtosecond laser writing.

The storage allows unprecedented properties including 360 TB/disc data capacity, thermal stability up to 1,000°C and virtually unlimited lifetime at room temperature (13.8 billion years at 190°C ) opening a new era of eternal data archiving. As a very stable and safe form of portable memory, the technology could be highly useful for organizations with big archives, such as national archives, museums and libraries, to preserve their information and records. The technology was first experimentally demonstrated in 2013 when a 300 kb digital copy of a text file was successfully recorded in 5D. Now, major documents from human history such as Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Newton’s Opticks, Magna Carta and Kings James Bible, have been saved as digital copies that could survive the human race. A copy of the UDHR encoded to 5D data storage was recently presented to UNESCO by the ORC at the International Year of Light (IYL) closing ceremony in Mexico.

The documents were recorded using ultrafast laser, producing extremely short and intense pulses of light. The file is written in three layers of nanostructured dots separated by five micrometers (one millionth of a meter). The self-assembled nanostructures change the way light travels through glass, modifying polarization of light that can then be read by combination of optical microscope and a polarizer, similar to that found in Polaroid sunglasses. Coined as the ‘Superman memory crystal’, as the glass memory has been compared to the “memory crystals” used in the Superman films, the data is recorded via self-assembled nanostructures created in fused quartz. The information encoding is realized in five dimensions: the size and orientation in addition to the three dimensional position of these nanostructures. The teams are now looking for industry partners to further develop and commercialize this ground-breaking new technology.

Flash and Hybrid Storage Arrays

Data Center storage is changing a a rapid pace. This is exciting and challenging with all of the storage options available now. I created this blog to be informative to those who are decision makers and those who utilize and work with these systems on a daily basis. Flash Storage has become main stream now as the cost of flash storage has diminished significantly in the last few years and reliability of flash has inversely increased .

Tegile’s concept of Buy once and refresh forever is great news for companies that have high needs for performance and capacity, but prohibited a budget to support these needs. With Tegile IntelliCare™ Lifetime Storage, you get a technology refresh of your entire storage system as part of your maintenance contract. When your new system is installed, a new Lifetime Storage program can be used with zero CAPEX outlay.

Tegile offers an impressive array of products such as the new Flash arrays line T4500, T4600, T4700 and T4800

Hybrid Arrays T4100     T4200     T4530     T4630     T4730     T4760     T4860

Tegile HD (High Density) Flash Arrays T10KHD-4-50     T10KHD-4-150     T10KHD-8-100     T10KHD-8-300

Tegile’s Intelliflash CP line that uses multiple controllers to scale horizontally as well as vertically.

The IntelliFlash Arrays are powered by Tegile’s IntelliFlash software architecture

And to top things off Tegile offers Intellicare which includes Cloud Analytics, Lifetime Storage and Tegiles Flash 5 Commitment

Pure Storage makes top rated All-Flash storage systems. You consolidate your workloads in 10x less space and get 10x better performance with Pure Storage storage arrays from Tier 1, Tier 2, Dev/Test and Big Data & Analytics.Pure Storage offer an impressive line of products check out their offering here.  The product line includes the Flash Array //M series which is comprised of the //10, //20, //50, //70 Flash Storage systems. Pure Storage stated that in its first year of shipments the Flash //m delivered 99.9999% availability – inclusive of non-disruptive upgrades and maintenance. This is impressive to say the least. And Pure Storage says that NVMe will be arriving soon and the sky’s the limit.

Tintri is another one of the newer top players in the storage arena they offer flash and hybrid storage systems. Tintri does away with Logical Unit Number (LUNs) and uses VM Aware store which uses vDisks. There are numerous advantages of using VM aware storage such as more efficient utilization of capacity. For example when a VM is scaled back capacity is automatically recaptured and made available for use by other VM’s. Protection schemas can be based on data type or even individual VMs. These policy based definitions can be applied to new storage in a non-disruptive fashion and finally thin provisioning makes adding capacity more efficient by not requiring reconfiguration of VMs or applications and therefore no down time.
