How I got involved with Internet Marketing

How I got involved in Internet marketing

internet marketing
I would just like to confess that I did not like the internet or anything to do with it as I thought that this was a bad place to be. A place where people would go to write bad things about each other , to commit criminal acts and to lure people away from their homes to kidnap them and so on. I also thought the internet was a propaganda platform.

Many years later, I was completely transformed and  became aware of other useful and genuine purposes of the internet and set up a Facebook account. From this medium I got a lot of information about what is done online. After this I set up an email account with, you guessed it, yahoo and became increasingly aware of what was really happening in the world of internet marketing.

Doing Business Online – My early Years

Doing Business Online –My early Years

doing business online
Hi friends. After becoming hooked on the internet and my desire to start doing business online, I signed up with Virtual Mall Jamaica and this was my very first experience of ever doing anything serious online. I signed up because my good friend and CEO Ronald Stephenson approached me with an offer that I could not refuse and I saw it as an opportunity to begin exploring my online objectives. Of course even though I started with them I spent the better part of three years learning the online business.

I set up a bookshop on virtual Mall Jamaica and got some sales locally and overseas but I was not actively promoting the business like I should because I was concentrating on learning about doing business online  to ensure that I was successful and that I could in turn help someone. I am sure you would agree with me that this was very important! Right?

How to Overcome Unemployment

How to Overcome Unemployment

What is unemployment?

A simple definition is the state of being unemployed. This occurs when a person is actively searching for employment and is unable to find work.

Another definition from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) defines it as “people who do not have a job, have actively looked for work in the past four weeks and are currently available for work. Also, people who were temporarily laid off and are waiting to be called back to that job”. This constitutes unemployment, as well.

Unemployment occurs for many reasons, political, economical, educational and other social factors impacting a country and its citizens and especially if that country is following a particular ideology that does not evoke positive sentiments.

Jobs – Where are They?

JobsWhere are They?


In these days of economic challenges, jobs have become scarce commodities. It is no wonder then that so many Americans and indeed the world over have jobs and the lack of jobs as their number one concern. Research conducted in late 2013 by various research organizations in the US has indicated that many persons are out of a job, have difficulties finding a job and because the economy is not back in full swing, the jobs are slow in coming into being.

The government has been doing its part to resuscitate the economy by putting money into projects, by giving financial assistance to large companies, etc. But then it is up to the private sector and particularly the small and medium size enterprises that are being looked to for these jobs. Unless they have a vision and a plan these might never materialize.

Tips on Good Advertisement Headlines

Tips on Good Advertisement Headlines

What is an advertisement?

An advertisement is a non-personal, public communication about causes, goods and services, ideas, organizations, people and places through various means including the internet.

An advertisement is basically salesmanship in print (John E. Kennedy, 1864-1928)

Now, having got that out of the way, there can be no denying the fact that the success of an advertising campaign lies in the headline, for the most part. This should be so thoughtfully done that it attracts readers’ attention and prompts them to read the rest of the advertisement. When deciding on the headline for the ad, it should be catchy and have punchy points.

Be Cool

Catchy headlines would catch the attention of the prospect. Words in the headline could also be used as tags and should give an indication of the content that follows. If for example, a company is selling affordable household appliance, the headline for such an ad could be ‘Long lasting appliance for less’. This will almost surely attracts the right customer who is in the market for long lasting and low cost household appliance. If the prospective customer belongs to a group or category interested in decorating their houses with beautiful appliance but not concerned about the price, then the headline must reflects this as well. If the product can be used by both men and women that should be mentioned in the title, as to do otherwise could cause you to lose out on potential customers.
