Market Hive RSS Articles The Internet is packed full of a wide range of useful blog syndication services. This RSS Feed (Syndication Service) here is different and does not require that the URL of this RSS feed be on my domain - - as does the rest of the website' Why Entrepreneurship Is Important? <p><img alt="Market Hive marketing tools" src="" style="float:left; height:150; width:150" /></p> <p><strong>Why Entrepreneurship Is Important?</strong></p> <p>What would you think if you saw a sign that read, &quot;Entrepreneurs Wanted&quot;? Many people would see such a sign as a rare opportunity to fulfil a lifelong dream.</p> <p>They&#39;ve long envisioned a life where they could make their own hours, follow their passions, and not have to feel as though the people above them are trying to keep them down.</p> <p>Others would view such a sign with suspicion.</p> <p>They might ask, &quot;What&#39;s the catch?&quot; They might even come up with a list of reasons why they can&#39;t take a chance, begin a new self-made career, and become more successful than they ever thought possible.</p> <p>While a degree of scepticism can be healthy, all too often people talk themselves out of a business opportunity because, well, they&#39;re scared.</p> <p>They might even look at the lives of successful people and think that those people were simply lucky; that they were at the right place at the right time.</p> <p>&nbsp;In fact, the difference between those people who are incredibly successful and those who grind it out in an unfulfilling job day in and day out is that the successful people seize opportunities that come their way.</p> <p>The nine-to-fivers may look longingly at opportunities, but let them slip through their fingers.</p> <p>Truth be told, there&#39;s never been a better time to find a business opportunity and follow your dreams. To a large extent, the Internet has levelled the playing field. If you have a computer and online access, there are unparalleled opportunities presented to &ldquo;create wealth&rdquo;. The question becomes, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? How do you know when an opportunity is the real deal?</p> <p>First, you need to drop any notion of finding success with multi-level marketing. While multi-level marketing may have made a few people at the top wealthy, no MLM today is creating wealth for those who are just joining.</p> <p>Second, you need to forget direct sales. Very, very few people are have a natural talent for selling; for the rest of us, direct sales is difficult or impossible, and a sure path to frustration, discouragement, and failure.</p> <p>Third, you need to embrace a company that has a proven system for marketing. So many Internet businesses fail today because business owners simply don&#39;t know how to market. After all, you can have the most attractive website in the world, but if you can&#39;t drive traffic to your site, you&#39;ll never see a penny.</p> <p>Fourth, you need to find a great product. In this Information Age, the product should be related to the Internet and have enormous growth potential.</p> <p>Society has a way of convincing us that wealth arises from those that work hard and get a well-paying job in some financial institution on Wall Street.</p> <p>While I do not dispute that you can get really wealthy managing other people&rsquo;s money as a fund manager or if you like to run an investment company like Warren Buffet, you can join in the fray.</p> <p>For the most of us, we just like to do our own thing and enjoy the freedom that exists in creating our own perception of a business.</p> <p>Fifth, you want to find affiliate with a company that will take the time to understand your personal and financial goals, and help you in any way they can to reach those goals. Essentially, it&#39;s the reverse of what you often find in the corporate world - where the people at the top keep you down.</p> <p>You want to find a business opportunity where the people at the top - the wealth masters, so to speak - reach down and give you a hand up. They should be able to set you up with the carbon copy of a system that almost runs on auto pilot.</p> <p>They should have eliminated the need for selling, explaining, bothering people, and pitching friends and family. Instead, they should have perfected a powerful, automated, turnkey marketing system that provides you with the best home business opportunity on the planet.</p> <p><strong>So does Markethive fulfil the above criteria?</strong></p> <p>Does it allow powerful social contact and interaction with social marketers &ndash; YES</p> <p>Does it allow a powerful Blogging Platform to maintain contact with your customers &ndash; YES</p> <p>Does Markethive allow powerful contact with your existing Domains &ndash; YES</p> <p>Does it allow east contact with your subscribers &ndash; YES</p> <p>Does it have a powerful lead generation and lead follow-up system &ndash; YES</p> <p>Does Markethive allow you to produce videos &ndash; YES</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>For more information visit my <a href="">Markethive site</a></p> <p>Contact me, Brian Walters on Skype: tuneup_bj</p> <p>Then you&#39;ll be glad that you took advantage of the &quot;Entrepreneurs Wanted&quot; sign!</p> Tue, 06 Oct 2015 15:37:49 -0600 Nails keeping them healthy and desease free <p><strong>Nails keeping them healthy and desease free.</strong></p> <p>The nails of humans are present at the end of each fingertip on the dorsal surface. The main function of nail is protection and it also helps for a firm grip for holding articles. It consists of a strong relatively flexible keratinous nail plate originating from the nail matrix. Under the nail plate there is a soft tissue called nail bed. Between the skin and nail plate there is a nail fold or cuticle. Normal healthy nail is slight pink in colour and the surface is convex from side to side. Finger nails grow 1 cm in three months and toe nails take 24 months for the same.</p> <p><strong>Importance of nails in disease diagnosis:</strong></p> <p>The colour, appearance, shape and nature of the nails give some information about the general health and hygiene of a person. Nails are examined as a routine by all doctors to get some clues about underlying diseases. Just looking at nails we can make out the hygiene of a person. The abnormal nail may be congenital or due to some diseases. The cause for changes in the nail extend from simple reasons to life threatening diseases. Hence the examination by a doctor is essential for diagnosis .Some abnormal findings with probable causes are discussed here for general awareness.</p> <p><strong>1) Hygiene:-</strong><br /> We can make out an unhygienic nail very easily .Deposition of dirt under the distal end of nail plate can make a chance for ingestion of pathogens while eating. If nail cutting is not done properly it can result in worm troubles in children. When the worms crawl in the anal orifice children will scratch which lodges the ova of worms under the nails and will be taken in while eating. Prominent nail can also complicate a skin disease by habitual scratching. Sharp nails in small kids are a real danger because small wounds can injure others when they do feet kicking or hand waving.</p> <p><strong>2) Colour of the nails:-</strong><br /> a) Nails become pale in anaemia.<br /> b) Opaque white discolouration (leuconychia) is seen in chronic renal failure and nephrotic syndrome.<br /> c) Whitening is also seen in hypoalbuminaemia as in cirrhosis and kidney disorders.<br /> d) Drugs like sulpha group, anti-malarial and antibiotics etc. can produce discolouration in the nails.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> e) Fungal infection causes black discolouration.<br /> f) In pseudomonas infection nails become black or green.<br /> g) Nail bed infarction occurs in vasculitis especially in SLE and polyarthritis.<br /> h) Red dots are seen in nails due to splinter haemorrhages in subacute bacterial endo Carditis, rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, collagen vascular diseases.<br /> i) Blunt injury produces haemorrhage and causes blue/black discolouration.<br /> &nbsp;j) Nails become brown in kidney diseases and in decreased adrenal activity.<br /> k) In Wilson&rsquo;s disease blue colour in semicircle appears in the nail.<br /> l) When the blood supply decreases nail become yellow .In jaundice and psoriasis also nail become yellowish.<br /> m) In yellow nail syndrome all nails become yellowish with pleural effusion.</p> <p><strong>3) Shape of nails:-</strong><br /> a) Clubbing: Here tissues at the base of nails are thickened and the angle between the nail base and the skin is obliterated. The nail becomes more convex and the fingertip becomes bulbous and looks like an end of a drumstick. When the condition becomes worse the nail looks like a parrot beak.<br /> Causes of clubbing:- Congenital Injuries, Severe chronic cyanosis, Lung diseases like empyema, bronchiectasis, carcinoma of bronchus and pulmonary tuberculosis.<br /> Abdominal diseases like Crohn&#39;s disease, polyposis of colon, ulcerative colitis, liver cirrhosis etc.<br /> Heart diseases like tetralogy of Fallot, subacute bacterial endocarditis and etc.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> b) Koilonychias:- Here the nails become concave like a spoon. This condition is seen in iron deficiency anaemia. In this condition the nails become thin, soft and brittle. The normal convexity will be replaced by concavity.<br /> c) Longitudinal ridging is seen in Raynaud&rsquo;s disease.<br /> d) Cuticle becomes ragged in dermatomyositis.<br /> e) Nail fold telangiectasia is a sign in dermatomyositis, systemic sclerosis and SLE.</p> <p><strong>4) Structure and consistency:-</strong><br /> a) Fungal infection of nail causes discolouration, deformity, hypertrophy and abnormal brittleness.<br /> b) Thimble pitting of nail is characteristic of psoriasis, acute eczema and <a href="" target="_blank">alopecia areata</a>.<br /> c) The inflammation of cuticle or nail fold is called paronychia.<br /> d) Onycholysis refers to the detachment of the nail from the nail bed, usually starting at the tip and/or sides. The separation of nail bed seen in psoriasis, infection and after taking <a href="" target="_blank">Tetracyclines</a>.<br /> e) Destruction of nail is seen in lichen planus, epidermolysis bullosa.<br /> f) Missing nail is seen in nail patella syndrome. It is a hereditary disease.<br /> g) Nails become brittle in Raynaud&rsquo;s disease and gangrene.<br /> h) Falling of nail is seen in fungal infection, psoriasis and thyroid diseases.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>5) Growth:-</strong><br /> Reduction in oxygen in your blood supply affects the growth of nails and all nail problems. Nail growth is also affected in severe illness. When the disease disappears the growth starts again resulting in formation of transverse ridges. These lines are called Beau&#39;s lines and are healpful to date the onset of illness.</p> <p><strong>6) The importance of Oxygen</strong><br /> Oxygen provides life and energy to every living cell. If poor eating habits, drinking, pollution, toxins, drugs or lack of exercise abuse your own human systems of body, mind and spirit. When your cells and your genetics are deprived of vital oxygen the immune system becomes weakened.</p> <p>Low oxygen levels are undesirable because they affect the body&#39;s metabolism and may even cause it to manufacture improper chemicals and/or give rise to various health problems. <a href="" target="_blank">Cellfood</a> is only one of the exceptional products offered at Nucell Canada, take a further look at our products that allows for nail health, anti-aging, vitality and longevity.</p> <p>Stay tuned for more articles later</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Article by Val Walters</p> <p><a href="">Resolve Beyond Neurology</a>&nbsp;</p> Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:33:36 -0600 If you want to begin holistic living, start by full body, mind, and spirit detox. <p><img alt="Market Hive marketing tools" src="" style="float:left; height:150px; width:150px" /><strong>Is there a Full Detox Plan for Body, Mind, and Spirit?</strong></p> <p>If you want to begin holistic living, start by full body, mind, and spirit detox.</p> <p>The body has its own natural way of detoxification, but if the toxins are too much, it needs some help. There are a lot of detox products available almost anywhere in the world.</p> <p>Detox products aid the body in the detox process making you feel more revitalized and energized. There are also other benefits of body detox including healthier skin and normal bowel movements.</p> <p>Spirituality plays a vital role in your daily life. If you believe in God, you know that there are certain things that you should and should not do. Holistic living is gaining more popularity these days. It means that a person should live a healthy and spiritual life.</p> <p>People with strong faith in God will likely say that a healthy life is worth nothing if your spirituality is at its lowest. These two aspects should always complement each other to achieve full body detox.</p> <p>Spirituality is also one aspect in a person&#39;s life that should also be given equal attention. Prayer is the most familiar form of exhibiting spirituality. It is part of almost any religion found in any part of the world.</p> <p>Most people will say that you should live your life to the fullest, and so why not achieve a full body detox? Detox or detoxification is a process to eliminate all the harmful toxins that have accumulated inside the body. The body, mind and spirit go hand in hand, why? The body will not function (or even not exist) without the mind, and the spirit.</p> <p>It is a sad fact that many people have very little time to ponder about their spiritual aspect of life. They are too busy looking for ways to stay healthy, paying the bills, making more money, and meet work deadlines. This may be so, because people have a choice. They can freely choose how to live their lives, as they see it fit.</p> <p>The mind should also undergo detoxification. You must free your mind from all negative thoughts. There is the so-called Psychoneuroimmunology that has been in existence for many years now in the eastern culture; it believes that the mind and body are linked to each other.</p> <p>Patients who undergo this treatment are taught how to focus the mind, and visualize the flowing healing-energy into the body&#39;s organs which needs healing. If you are successful in doing this treatment, the healing process is said to move at a faster rate. Visualization is the key to unite the mind and body, and achieve results. You can only do this if you get help from the professionals who are into this kind of mind detox. Of course, there are also other types of mind detox that you can make use. Choose one that you think will work best for you.</p> <p>There is no established &#39;right&#39; way to pray. In fact, you can pray anywhere you like, any position you like, just as long as it comes from the heart and you have deep faith to your creator. All you need to do is to find the right way of praying, one that will work best for you.</p> <p>It is then possible to get full body, mind, and spirit detox and these are just simple ways. Getting a professional help can greatly help you in achieving real and tangible results.</p> <p>Article by:</p> <p>Brian Walters - Board of Directors and Alpha Founder.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">Market Promotion Site</a></p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">Brian Walters Market Hive </a></p> Mon, 05 Oct 2015 13:50:27 -0600 A practical approach to My Resolve Beyond Neurology <p><img alt="Resolve Beyond Neurology" src="" style="float:left; height:100px; width:125px" /><strong>A practical approach to My Resolve Beyond Neurology</strong></p> <p>My Resolve Beyond Neurology uses a practical approach to resolving conflicts that can affect your innate systems and is a three-part positive feedback system. These innate systems I am talking about include but are not limited to; breathing, physical movement, thought processes, emotional stress resolution and so on.</p> <p>See: <a href=""></a></p> <p>The 3 part positive feedback system mentioned above takes the guesswork out of determining firstly what the real problem that ails us is, secondly, confirms the treatment and thirdly it validates the expected result of the treatment.</p> <p>Resolve Beyond Neurology System training helps find the conflict(s) in neurology. The system is simply part of my &quot;Resolve Toolkit&quot; which was (and still is) developed and taught by me as part of my Resolve beyond neurology training program.</p> <p>The way a person recovers from an injury, or a conflict, or some emotional stress should be a non-event in one&rsquo;s life. In other words, getting better should be automatic response in the right way, just like when you cut finger slightly, it mends itself by itself. It would be awesome if other traumas in life like, emotional stress, physical injuries and conflicts resolved themselves by themselves in the same way.</p> <p>However, during the healing process, if these emotional stresses, injuries and conflicts are putting some unwanted negative stimulus in our life, then this influence may begin running or at least supplying a strong influence over our innate system.</p> <p>So instead of oneself being in control of our lives, a vicious cycle starts and then perpetuates itself with results in often increasing our symptoms and our illness. So you limp continues or your shoulder continues aching and we seem powerless to erase or correct this ongoing situation.</p> <p>So how in reality does this happen? Now each muscle and nerve in our body ultimately connects to our brain through our internal electrical and nervous systems. The pain sensors trigger and begin possibly influencing our behaviours, our structure and our emotions. This then could possibly be causing many undesired influence on our daily life in a negative way.</p> <p>The way we learnt to walk, run, play sport and so on is because our brain is constantly running &quot;programs&quot;, signalling our muscles to do these things. Different &quot;programs&quot; run causing different movements that we want to make. These programs are very sophisticated enabling us when we walk for example, to also see, hear, keep our balance, talk laugh and so on.</p> <p>Let me finish this article aby way of an example of conflict resolution and how using my Resolve Beyond Neurology can help.</p> <p>Conflict Resolution Example:&nbsp; You see a person who should be doing say accountancy in life, it&rsquo;s what he is most suited to as all the tests he did at school to determine a possible career path showed he would be a great accountant.</p> <p>But he is doing a plumbers job. You say &ldquo;why aren&rsquo;t you doing accountancy&rdquo;.&nbsp; He says, &ldquo;Because my father said I&rsquo;d never be any good as an accountant&rdquo; - And he believed his father and not the school career tests he did! He now &ldquo;the plumber&rdquo; has an instant conflict that perhaps could go on for all his life, and this could make him ill.</p> <p>Using the Beyond Neurology approach in client care can highlight how these conflicts can happen. We need to be aware and look for these conflicts and refocus to find the best solution.</p> <p>Conflict Example:&nbsp; A person having trouble learning - shows they have had a conflict between what they want to learn and what they have had to learn. A person&rsquo;s truth is always with them. We can&rsquo;t teach them their own truth only they can do that.</p> <p>But what is it that is stopping them from discovering and expressing their own truth? These obstacles are often unknown by the subconscious and using methods and techniques outlined in my Resolve Beyond neurology Training Classes we can identify not only the mechanisms of the compensation patterns, but the context and the values that they are trying to live out and what is we do when we work with clients is helping them to get back to normal. Most important not what we as practitioners &ldquo;think is normal&rdquo; but acceptance by the client of normal for them and their conflict resolution.</p> <p>Stay tuned for more articles later</p> <p>Article by Val Walters</p> <p><a href="">Resolve Beyond Neurology</a></p> Fri, 02 Oct 2015 20:54:32 -0600 Markethive Inbound Marketing Tools <p><img alt="Market Hive marketing tools" src="" style="float:left; height:152px; width:150px" /><strong>My Markethive Site combines many tools all connected together.</strong></p> <p>This is what makes it such a great inbound marketing strategy.

The Yachts we are using are modified Benateau 40 CR, and we will have a crew of 12, this will be a change for me as in the past in Cyprus,we have had a shorthanded crew and used an asymmetrical spinnaker rather than a conventional spherical spinnaker which can be challenging to use in gusty condition.</p> <p>We will have a little time to settle in and get to know one another, sailing across to Cowes and the event starts in earnest at 1000 on Saturday with fleet racing. On Sunday there is match racing for the top 4 boats with the remainder of the fleet competing two final races.</p> <p>Looking forward to meeting the rest of the crew and a great weekend of sailing under the Devitt and Moore flag.</p> <p><a href="">David Ogden</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:08:52 -0600 The Market Hive Auto Responder System <p><strong>Auto Responders:</strong></p> <p>You can pick up an Autoresponder for about $20 per month from Aweber or Get Response or try something cheaper like Mail Chimp where you pay per email You need however to be aware that as your mail list grows so do your cost and these can become substantial ($250-500+ per month).</p> <p>A landing page will cost from $20-200 per month using the likes of Instapage or Unbounce, to around $1250 or upwards for a custom design and don&#39;t forget that you will also need a hosting company to host the page, together with a domain name to host your website.</p> <p><strong>Business Investigation</strong></p> <p>Quite often when people suggest you look at &quot;XYZ Business&quot; these items are not mentioned, however as you can see they can be a costly overhead.</p> <p>Other Marketing Tools you need to consider when running your business</p> <ul> <li>Keyword Research Tools</li> <li>Campaign Management - This is often forgotten when you first start a business</li> <li>URL short codes</li> <li>WYSIWYG editor</li> <li>WordPress Plugin - The Plugin, so to speak &ldquo;moves&rdquo; your blog posts in Market Hive to the outside world to your domain and delivers more power and control to your posts.</li> </ul> <p>The Market Hive WordPress Plugins then offer custom functions and features so that each user can tailor their site to their specific needs. Note that the WordPress Plugin acts as an additional content system to your main site.</p> <p>The Plugin, so to speak &ldquo;moves&rdquo; your blog posts in Market Hive to the outside world to your domain and delivers more power and control to your posts.</p> <p>So now your blog posts within MarketHive become available to the public via your Domain. That&#39;s the whole idea of writing content for a blog.</p> <p>The WordPress plugin allows you to create blog posts on your WordPress site, as if you created those posts yourself on your site.</p> <p>Using this system, you can create a mix of content from other members (including groups).</p> <p>This is powerful because your domain containing the posts is now been put into the traditional &ldquo;Search Engine Arena&rdquo; whereas - prior to the WordPress Plugin your content was maybe just in the social arena.</p> <p><strong>Knowledge Forums</strong></p> <p>Most people are quite adapt at typing a question into their browsers and then surfing the web for answers, this is quick and easy, however how much are you willing to put your trust in answers supplied by strangers.</p> <p>Normally it&rsquo;s better to do your own research, but it can help to get to gather the thoughts of other marketers on forum sites like &quot;Warrior Forum&quot; or &quot;WHAM,&quot; who willing share their experience with those just entering the market place.</p> <p><strong>Using Social Media for your business</strong></p> <p>There are hundreds of social media sites covering every subject under the sun, however you are best to concentrate in the beginning on the big four, Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn and YouTube.</p> <p>Now Facebook for me is a more about family but it does provide a huge marketing potential which cannot be ignored. LinkedIn on the other hand is more serious and business orientated.

Thankfully, for the last 30 years we have been spared major conflicts, however if you attend any sporting event you will still see teams and individuals who wish to better their opponents or competitor, and the same can be found in both politics and business. Nobody wants to be the loser.</p> <p>Now some people say that competition is good for you, it gets the best out of you, but it is not always so. I am a keen fan of Formula One, where the difference between success and failure can be measured in 100 th of a second.</p> <p>Watch any race and after the first laps you will see battles start to develop between various cars, some driving for the same teams. The drivers battling for position slowly but surely start dropping behind the cars in front, as they focus on attacking and defending their position. Usually the car at the front only has to maintain a good pace, knowing that chasing drivers will need to drive faster than him to close the distance.</p> <p>If a driver wishes to get on the podium they need to avoid getting involved in long lasting jostling for position and make quick and decisive passes.</p> <p>Business is the same, one needs to be carefully not to become embroiled in a price war with your competitors because it will distract you from running your business, you need to focuses on what you do best and provide value for money.</p> <p>MarketHive the new free marketing system does have competitors such as Ibotoolbox another free system but but they are looking at different markets, because MarkHive&#39;s target is companies which provide paid services such as emailing systems. On the face of it Ibotoolbox is higher ranked in Alexa than MarketHive, but they have presence in very different countries. What is more interesting is that Visitors to MarketHive spend nearly twice the amount of time on MarketHive 13.38 - 6:30 and also view more pages, this bodes well for the future, as marketers discover exactly what MarketHive is about.</p> <p>MarketHive will compete directly with the likes of GetResponse, Constant Contact, Aweber and Mail Chimp not only because it is free but because it more than matches or even surpasses the technical aspects in order meet high email delivery targets, on top of which it supplier additional features and tool essential for marketing any business, in a social media dominated world.</p> <p>One strong feature within MarketHive is a WordPress Plugin, rather than competing, MarketHive improves WordPress by making it easy for members of the community to add blog posts from their friends and groups automatically into any WordPress blog.</p> <p>One of MarketHive&#39;s aim is to become a marketing centre with the provision of marketing tools, where marketers can not only share information and tips with one another but also disseminate information across other social media sites.</p> Fri, 25 Sep 2015 11:12:26 -0600 The Long Wait Is Coming To an End <p>A growing number of people are discovering the MarketHive the social media site for business entrepreneurs. Staffing problems have been the cause of delays to the launch of the system, however these have now been resolved and the opportunity has been taken to review the system in the light of ever changing technology.</p> <p>A new team is at present reworking some of the systems, so that rather than attempting to compete with the likes of Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube, MarketHive will concentrate on building apps which will make the likes of WordPress better. whilst providing active social and business interaction with fellow members</p> <p>The blogging and messaging systems which lie at the heart of social media marketing have been revamped so as to provide ways for members share their thoughts and work with millions of others like minded people.</p> <p>Changes behind the scenes have ensured that when you use the free system tools such as Capture pages and auto responders you messages will reach your target audience and much more work is in the pipeline.</p> <p>MarketHive is launching a simple but effective affiliate program which will reward Alpha members with between 25-50% commissions when they introduce other Alpha subscribers.</p> <p>MarketHive is a social neural network which offers free tools for life to help build your business and communicate with other entrepreneurs, however some people want more and this is where Alpha membership comes in. Alpha members have a special capture page on MarketHive which they can connect to tier MarketHive auto responder to promote their business or MarketHive itself. Other benefits of becoming a subscriber is that each month you will have $100 of advertising credits to place an advert on the system. Alpha Subscribers pay only $100 per month so in effect membership is free.</p> <p>Currently there is a further level of members an that is to become an Alpha founder such as myself by paying an one off payment for Life of $1,200, with the following additional benefits :30 days of advertising credits on sign up and&nbsp; they also have a&nbsp; shares in a rotator of people who sign up to the root directory of MarketHive</p> <p>One of the things that attracted me to MarketHive was the ease of getting my blogs in front of more people, although I was sad to see the demise of Blogpress. the new MarketHive widget for WordPress has led me back to using WordPress which is used on over 60 million Websites. Blogpress was limited to a single page setup whereas WordPress can become a multi page Website. I drive information to my blogs from the MarketHive blogging section and it is simple and effective.</p> <p>MarketHive is a force multiplier when it comes to blogging, for example a blog which may get 50 to 100 views normally can get 2,000+.

Rockefeller, Amelia Earhart, and Ulysses S. Grant have in common?</p> <p>They each possessed the talent of turning obstacles into opportunities drawn from the&nbsp;Stoic&nbsp;ideologies of Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:275px; width:550px" /></p> <p>While living our lives, it&rsquo;s very likely that you will run into some pretty distressing events, and at other times it&rsquo;ll seem like everything is running exactly as it should with very few discomforts.</p> <p>And arguably, the more interesting and worthwhile a life goal is, the more sacrifice and inconvenience will be required from you up front. Yet we often find ourselves complaining about all the little things that happen to us during this path for greatness.</p> <p>It stems from the false assumption that somehow we can have it all: build that amazing startup&nbsp;<em>and</em>&nbsp;never deal with rejections; live your awesome life<em>and</em>&nbsp;remain unexposed by all of its obstacles.</p> <p>To achieve greatness, you need to re-program your brain to not think this way &mdash; it&rsquo;s unrealistic and self sabotaging. It won&rsquo;t help you achieve worthwhile goals since worthwhile goals are almost guaranteed to put you through adversity.</p> <p>Most importantly, your brain is telling you that you are dominated by circumstance and the decisions of other people, instead of letting it be a force of your own. You start to subconsciously prioritize pleasure over pain, making it really hard to truly start executing on your vision.</p> <p>So the question is not how skilled of an entrepreneur, artist, or writer you are, but can you keep it steady and focus only on what you&nbsp;<em>can</em>&nbsp;change, no matter how much external events may fluctuate?</p> <h3><strong>Part 1: Develop the Skill of Eudaimonia</strong></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Keeping your irrational emotions in check during tribulations is not easy to develop since your brain is always telling you the react the way it&rsquo;s been conditioned to. But it&rsquo;s a skill that can be cultivated so you can focus your energy on solving problems, rather than reacting to them. It&rsquo;s the key to making your life successful all on your own.</p> <p>The Greeks refer to this state as&nbsp;<strong>Eudaimonia</strong>, which is defined as a contented state of happiness. In a more literal sense, eudaimonia means to have a good indwelling spirit to make the&nbsp;<em>right</em>&nbsp;actions. Unfortunately, today we associate &lsquo;happiness&rsquo; as a subjective feeling rather than an objective state that characterizes a well-lived life irrespective of the emotional state we experience.</p> <p>Realize that it isn&rsquo;t outside influence that make us feel something, it&rsquo;s our inner thoughts that create our feelings (which often stress us out). When this happens, we point the finger at external events, but all that does is create more conflicts in our minds. When we avoid the reality of an uncomfortable situation &mdash; meeting a deadline, boss&rsquo;s urgent email &mdash; we weaken our self-disciple and harm ourselves.</p> <p>Another way of applying this principle is asking yourself:</p> <p><em>Does getting upset or panicking provide your with better options?</em></p> <p>Sometimes it does, but more often it does not.</p> <p>If an emotion can&rsquo;t change the situation you&rsquo;re in, it&rsquo;s likely a destructive one.</p> <p>I&rsquo;m not saying to stop feeling everything. If you need to take a moment, go right ahead and feel it. But be prepared to tackle emotions with logic because with enough logical questions and statements you&rsquo;ll get to the causes, which are much easier to comprehend.</p> <blockquote>&ldquo;Today I escaped anxiety. Or no, I discarded it, because it was within me, in my own perceptions &mdash; not outside.&rdquo; &mdash; Marcus Aurelius</blockquote> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3><strong>Part 2: Fear nothing</strong></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Fear can only enter the mind if you want it to. If you choose not to be afraid then fear will simply vanish.</p> <p><strong>Premeditatio Malorum</strong>&nbsp;is the technique of overcoming problems by vividly imagining what it would be like to face those misfortunes in order to practice gratitude and prepare for the worst.</p> <p>Here&rsquo;s some of mine:</p> <blockquote>I imagine losing my startup. We don&rsquo;t close our next round of funding. Our main customer acquisition channel fizzes out. My co-founder leaves the company.</blockquote> <blockquote>Everyday when I call my girlfriend, I feel in that moment that it could be the last time I ever speak with her. It keeps my appreciation fresh and strengthens our relationship.</blockquote> <blockquote>A good one by Steve Jobs is reminding myself that I&rsquo;ll be dead soon. It could be tomorrow or in another 80 years, but nothing helps me focus more than thinking about death.</blockquote> <blockquote>&ldquo;Remembering that I&rsquo;ll be dead soon is the most important tool I&rsquo;ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.&rdquo; &mdash; Steve Jobs</blockquote> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3><strong>Part 3: Use Pain As Your Teacher</strong></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Just as physical pain is caused by a bodily injuries and sickness, mental distress is caused by the wrong belief system and incorrect judgements.</p> <p>But living with pain could help us develop endurance and inner calm instead of mentally destructive passions. Remember, emotional reactions are natural &mdash; it&rsquo;s how you respond to them that&rsquo;s important.</p> <p>Marcus Aurelius describes pain as something that is neither good nor evil. It&rsquo;s something that hurts without discrimination, but like everything else in life, it will end eventually.</p> <h4>The Negative Visualization Exercise</h4> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Here&rsquo;s a practical exercise I learned from Tim Ferris to accomplish big goals by defining your pains:</p> <ol> <li>Take an 8 x 11 paper and make three columns.</li> <li>On the top write something big you want to accomplish (quit your job and start a startup, move to Bali, write a fiction novel, whatever).</li> <li>On the first column write the worst possible things that could happen if you made that decision.</li> <li>On the next column, write how you could minimize all of that from happening.</li> <li>On the last one, write how you could get back to where you were originally. Like getting back to the industry you left to start your own business.</li> </ol> <p>I did this when I decided to start&nbsp;LawTrades&nbsp;and not work for a firm straight out of law school. On a scale of 1 to 10 I assigned a pain level of about 3 (I could always work at a law firm if it didn&rsquo;t pan out) and a life changing score of 10 (wake up everyday loving what I do).</p> <blockquote>&ldquo;Named must your fear be before banish it you can&rdquo; &mdash; Yoda</blockquote> <h3>&nbsp;</h3> <h3><strong>Part 4: Respond, Not React</strong></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Don&rsquo;t react to the world. You may respond but not react. A response is an action taken based on logic. A reaction is an impulse based on an emotional state. Your reaction will not alter the world. Your reaction only changes you. Your response is what will change the world.</p> <h3><strong>The Cheat Sheet</strong></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>All is temporary</li> <li>Do everything as if it were the last thing you do in your life</li> <li>Have nothing you are not prepared to lose</li> <li>Accept what can&rsquo;t be changed</li> <li>Refuse to be a victim</li> <li>Practice misfortune</li> <li>Negative visualization</li> <li>Don&rsquo;t let emotions override what your mind tells you</li> </ul> </div> </div> <div style="margin-left:auto;"> <hr /></div> <div> <div style="margin-left:auto;"> <blockquote>If you enjoyed this piece, hit that cool &lsquo;share&rsquo; button&nbsp;to spread the love to the world. Thanks!</blockquote> </div> </div> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Stephen Hodgkiss<br /> Chief Engineer at MarketHive<br /> <a href="" target="_blank"></a>&nbsp;</p> Tue, 22 Sep 2015 13:35:18 -0600 The European Refugee Crisis <h2>The European Refugee crisis</h2> <p>Europe is in the midst of an invasion because Germany publicly announced it would accept 800,000 refugees. This carrot has led to hundreds of <img alt="" src="" style="float:left; height:232px; width:220px" />thousands of people crossing EU borders in an attempt to reach Germany. Most of Europe forms part of the Schengen agreement which allows free movement between countries, however refugees need to follow European asylum rules laid down in the Dublin Agreement. The agreement states that Asylum claims should be processed in the first country they set foot in in this case countries such as Malta, Italy, Greece, Slovakia, Slovenia ,Romania, Bulgaria and perhaps France or Spain, or the State responsible for their entry into the territory of the EU Member States, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland.</p> <p>The problem is that mixed amongst the Syrian refuges are people from Bangladesh and other nations who see this as an opportunity to circumvent immigration rules the so called economic immigrants. There also could be ISIS terrorists hiding in these groups.</p> <p>Taking a step back,in the normal course of events, refugees will flee to a neighbouring country and will be provided with International help in camps set up to protect them and provide shelter and food until such time as they can return to their own country. Some may apply for Asylum in other countries where they may have family relations.</p> <p>Greece has bas been overwhelmed with people heading for Germany and has just been waving them through with no documents from the Greek Islands and Turkey and other countries bordering the Mediterranean has allowed people smuggling operations to be set up within their countries which has caused thousands of deaths at sea. It is essential that these operations be shutdown by cutting off the supply of inflatable boats and patrolling the coastlines.</p> <p>Immigrants already in Europe need to be stopped and checked as Hungary is now doing. Economic immigrant need to collected and deported. Potential asylum seekers need to be taken to transit camps where their applications can be considered. This needs to be done across the EU with exterior borders closed to people who do not papers or visa&#39;s. Even today on TV refugees have said they do not want to be fingerprinted for fear that they will be returned to the country entered from.</p> <p>If Europe becomes a fortress it will stop the people smugglers extorting money from refugees and putting them at risk of drowning at sea. Strong external borders to Europe are essential so as to make travel within Europe easier. Look at how Australia successfully controls its immigration all boats without authorisation are diverted to an island where papers are examined and applications for asylum are considered. Australia is going to allow 2,200 Syrian and 2,200 Iraqis refugees into the country and they will not have to risk their life with dangerous sea voyages.</p> <p>The UK will also be taking in Refugees from Camps bordering Syria such as Lebanon and Turkey and this should be the model that other countries should follow taking those in the most need, so they have no need to risk their lives further. Yes refugees need help and the best way to support them is to send food, clothing, shelters to the camps surrounding Syria and governments need to try to improve the condition in the camps. If you move people to a new country it takes time for them to assimulate into the population</p> <p>The war in Syria is dragging on and International action need to be taken to bring it to and end so that refugees can return to their lives and be provided with aid to rebuild their houses Unless firm action is taken soon there is a danger that the influence of Isis will spread the map below could become fact by 2005 <a href=";utm_source=apester&amp;utm_medium=scs&amp;utm_campaign=apester2015"><img alt="" src="" style="height:350px; width:590px" /></a></p> Tue, 15 Sep 2015 17:42:56 -0600 10 Types of Content That Will Drive You More Traffic <h2>Content marketing is more than writing blogs. Way more</h2> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:270px; width:436px" /></p> <p>If you&rsquo;re just getting involved in content marketing, the first thing you need to do is launch your blog and start writing.</p> <p>Then, when your blog is established and purring along, try throwing in a new type of content. I predict that you&rsquo;ll immediately see a difference &mdash; fresh traffic, targeted visitors, higher conversion rates, and better SEO.</p> <p>But before I share the 10&nbsp;types of content that will drive you more traffic, there are a few things you need to know:</p> <p>You don&rsquo;t need to try all of these examples &ndash; different content types suit different brands in different ways. If you don&rsquo;t think that a certain type of content will serve you, no problem. This list isn&rsquo;t about must-haves. It&rsquo;s about maybes.<br /> Don&rsquo;t be afraid to try new stuff &ndash; I&rsquo;ve found that some people shy away from new types of content because they think it will take too long, be too hard, or fall flat. I understand your apprehension, but I encourage you to try it anyway. Want to get started with a video? You don&rsquo;t need to buy a green screen, editing software, or a pro-grade camera. Use your iPhone and your YouTube account. Start small and work your way up.</p> <p>Pick one and put it in your schedule &ndash; if you use a content marketing schedule, slot one or two of these into the editorial calendar for the next month. If you don&rsquo;t plan it, you probably won&rsquo;t do it. I challenge you to pick one and give it a try sometime in the next four weeks.</p> <p>This list is not exhaustive &ndash; I encourage you to think of content not in terms of types but ideas. The form that the content takes is secondary. The idea is primary. First, develop your idea. Then, determine what it&rsquo;s going to look like. The variety of content is endless. Heck, you may even want to invent your own type of content.</p> <p>So, let&rsquo;s get started&hellip;</p> <h2>Content type #1: Infographics</h2> <p>An infographic is the presentation of information or data in a visual way. Its name sums it up &mdash; info + graphic.</p> <p>Infographics get shared more, viewed more, and loved more than most other content types. They are a powerful way to get your information out there in an explosively visual format. One study found that infographics were liked and shared on social media up to three times more often than other content. The viral potential is there.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>If you have a graphic designer in your professional network, tap him or her to make an infographic for you. Some graphic artists specialize in infographics. If you have it in your budget, you can use a service like Infographics typically start at $1,000.</p> <p><strong>When to use it</strong></p> <p>Infographics are perfect for communicating almost any idea or concept. Data, research, statistics, and findings work especially well.</p> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>Infographics can be expensive. The amount cited above &mdash; a thousand dollars &mdash; is pretty close to the standard price.</p> <p>Infographics used to go viral just by virtue of being an infographic. That doesn&rsquo;t work anymore. Everyone is making infographics. Today, you have to make it really good to make it shareable.</p> <p>Make a gifographic. Gifographics use the infographic model but feature animated gifs instead of the static images of a conventional infographic. You can check out an example here.</p> <h2>Content type #2: Meme</h2> <p>You&rsquo;ve seen memes. They&rsquo;re easy to make. They&rsquo;re viral. They&rsquo;re hilarious.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:480px; width:480px" /></p> <p>That&rsquo;s one of the great benefits of memes &mdash; their humor. People love something that they can laugh at, share, and get a kick out of.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>Memes don&rsquo;t require graphic design skills. Meme Generator and Quick Meme are sites that allow you to add your own text to popular meme images.<br /> Memes may not be the best type of content to share on your blog, but they&rsquo;re primed for social media outlets. Twitter, Stumbleupon, Pinterest, Reddit, and Tumblr (especially Tumblr) will help your meme to spread.<br /> Memes are just-because content. When the mood hits or a funny idea strikes you, go ahead and meme it.</p> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>They are adaptable. The great thing about memes is that they can be adapted for use in any niche. Your niche is neither too narrow nor abstruse to warrant its own meme.</p> <p>Memes can be low value, so don&rsquo;t overuse them. When misused, they can devalue the message or brand that you&rsquo;re trying to promote.</p> <h2>Content type #3: Videos</h2> <p>There&rsquo;s a world of variety within videos. I could write a whole separate post on different types of videos. No matter what type it is, however, a good video communicates a message in a succinct and memorable way. Done well, a video can be extraordinarily persuasive. This video on Crazy Egg helps to bring in $21k every month.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>Whether you create a video of an office tour, an explainer video, or a music video (it&rsquo;s been done), you&rsquo;ve got to get the script right. A video isn&rsquo;t only about the moving picture; it&rsquo;s about the words that you say or display. Check out a few more tips for making an explainer video.<br /> Put the video on YouTube and Vimeo. Both of these video sharing sites are great ways to garner social signals for SEO and improved results for video search itself.</p> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>Making a good video is not cheap. You can start small, of course, but contracting a video specialist or a camera crew can cost quite a bit.</p> <p>Videos aren&rsquo;t supposed to be long. Two to three minutes is a good length.</p> <h2>Content type #4: Guides</h2> <p>A guide is a detailed and fairly long piece of content. Think of it as an epic blog post. It goes beyond the length, style, and approach of an ordinary blog post. My Advanced Guide series are some of the most popular types of content I&rsquo;ve ever created. When you check them out, you&rsquo;ll discover that they have more visual flair and are much longer than my blog articles.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>Writing a guide requires a good writer, a good designer, and a good idea. The writer needs to produce top-tier content. The designer needs to know how to present that content in an attractive way. And the idea has to be something that your audience wants. You may wish to present the guide as a downloadable PDF.</p> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>Guides can be a helpful bait for harvesting email addresses: &ldquo;I&rsquo;ll give you this awesome guide if you register your email address.&rdquo;</p> <p>A guide needs to look good. Make sure you recruit the services of a capable designer as well as a writer. Readability has as much to do with layout and presentation as it does with great writing style.</p> <h2>Content type #5: Book reviews</h2> <p>A book review is a simple discussion of a book plus your take on it. You recommend good ones, critique not-so-good ones, and share the value that you glean from them. Book reviews are great because they help to position you as a thought leader.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>A book review can be as complicated or as simple as you want. I suggest a short-and-simple 7-point format:</p> <ul> <li>Introduce the book: 1-5 sentences.</li> <li>Introduce the author: 1-5 sentences.</li> <li>Summarize the book&rsquo;s major points: 1-3 sentences per point.</li> <li>Share what you liked in the book: 1-5 sentences.</li> <li>Share what you didn&rsquo;t like about the book: 1-5 sentences.</li> <li>Recommend it (or not) to your readers: 1-3 sentences.</li> <li>Provide a call to action: Link to the book.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>Book review content works best if you have a readership that is inclined to read books.<br /> Book reviews are especially helpful for thought leadership if you&rsquo;re able to review new releases or pre-releases or interview the author.</p> <h2>Content type #6: Opinion post (a.k.a. &ldquo;Rant&rdquo;)</h2> <p>This style of post is substantially different from your typical blog post, mostly due to its tone. You may be used to publishing a careful and researched discussion of a topic. The rant or opinion, by contrast, may be stronger and more expressive. The more vociferous your position, the more it&rsquo;s going to get read and shared.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>Occasionally, write a strong first-person take on a hot topic or big issue. It could be your opinion on a major industry change. I did this when Matt Cutts announced the demise of guest blogging. When you address popular topics, you&rsquo;re able to get stronger search potential and shareability.</p> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>This should not be a daily thing. Someone who is constantly sharing his or her opinions or ranting about a topic can become odious. Use with caution.</p> <p>Be civil. Don&rsquo;t let your opinions degenerate into people bashing. &ldquo;Rant&rdquo; does not equal &ldquo;angry.&rdquo;<br /> Be clear about what you&rsquo;re doing &mdash; that this is your opinion, your take, your position &mdash; and be humble about it.</p> <h2>Content type #7: Product reviews</h2> <p>Like the book review, a product review can help establish authority and leadership in your industry. Every industry has its unique array of products, software, and services. When you engage key developers, manufacturers, or service providers, you gain recognition and respect. All you need to do is share your experience with the product and provide your recommendation.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>Here&rsquo;s a pattern for the product review:</p> <ul> <li>Introduce the product</li> <li>Introduce the producer</li> <li>Describe the product</li> <li>Share what you like</li> <li>Share what you don&rsquo;t like</li> <li>Provide your recommendation</li> <li>Provide a call to action</li> </ul> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>If the product is a physical item, you may want to have a video component to the review. A video allows you to take a hands-on approach to the product as you review it.</p> <h2>Content type #8: How-to</h2> <p>The how-to is one of the most popular types of content, especially in my niche. On my blog, I write a lot of how-to guides. How-to articles have awesome long tail search potential due to these popular long tail query introductions: &ldquo;How to&hellip;&rdquo; and &ldquo;How do I&hellip;?&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>First, identify a common problem. Then, come up with a solution. The model is simple:</p> <ul> <li>Introduce the problem</li> <li>Introduce the solution</li> <li>Discuss each step of the solution</li> <li>Summarize the discussion</li> <li>Provide a conclusion</li> </ul> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>The options for how-tos are inexhaustible. Think of one topic that reflects something you do on a daily basis. Next, write a how-to article based on that one issue. It could be industry specific or more general: &ldquo;How to reply to every email in one minute or less&rdquo; or &ldquo;How to optimize your robots.txt for search engines.&rdquo;</p> <p>The more thorough your explanation is, the better. Diagrams, videos, and pictures can all help enhance the how-to blog.</p> <h2>Content type #9: Lists</h2> <p>Lists have endless appeal. We&rsquo;re wired to love them. Chance are you&rsquo;re going to see or read an article today that involves some sort of a list &mdash; &ldquo;5 Security Breaches You Need to Know about,&rdquo; &ldquo;17 Ways to Rank Higher in Google in One Month.&rdquo; Hey, you&rsquo;re already reading an article with the title &ldquo;15 Types.&rdquo;</p> <p>From the ancient Ten Commandments to modern lists of everything, numbered ideas are as popular as ever. You can&rsquo;t go wrong with this content type. Even popular magazines use list appeal to sell issues.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>Pick a topic, then pick a number. You&rsquo;re halfway to creating a list. A good example of this is this post on 7 ways to increase your rankings without leveraging content marketing.</p> <p>When you write your list, use this simple format: introduce the topic, list your points, and provide a conclusion.</p> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>The more detailed your list is, the better. Long lists are good too.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s no magic number for an awesome list. Odd numbers, round numbers, any types of numbers &mdash; they all work equally well.</p> <h2>Content type #10: Link pages</h2> <p>A link page is simply a post that provides links to great resources around the web. The great thing about link posts is that they spread link love to other sites, provide your own site with authoritative SEO signals, and assert your thought leadership within your field.</p> <p><strong>How to do it</strong></p> <p>A link page, often called a link roundup, is simply a list of links. Write down the title of the article, hyperlink it, and number it. Done.</p> <p><strong>Things to keep in mind</strong></p> <p>It&rsquo;s helpful to add your own blurb or introduction for each link you provide. Although not necessary, it&rsquo;s a good way to put your own spin on a topic or add a bit of value to the discussion. Besides, if a post is particularly good (or bad), you may want to point this out.</p> <hr /> <p>Stephen Hodgkiss<br /> Chief Engineer MarketHive Inc.<br /> <a href=""><img alt="markethive" src="" style="height:100px; width:100px" /></a></p> Sun, 13 Sep 2015 10:48:06 -0600 Does MarketHive Have The Right Team <p><img alt="Effective teamwork" src="" style="float:left; height:50%; margin-left:5px; margin-right:5px; width:50%" />Does MarketHive have the right team. This is a question raised by chief market researcher within the planning group of MarketHive. The principle player within MarketHive is its CEO Thomas Prendergast, formally referred to as &quot;the Godfather&quot; in the days of Veretekk.&nbsp; Tom is a marketing profession who cut is teeth by running his own advertising agency before coming up with the idea of creating his own online marketing company Veretekk.</p> <p>Officially launched as an affiliate opportunity on 1st April 2004. But Veretekk started a long time before that. It has always been his vision and a mission.</p> <blockquote> <p>&quot;I am the CEO of Veretekk. My name is Thomas Prendergast and I welcome you to Veretekk. Veretekk has been my personal mission for over 10 years. That mission is to empower you, the individual to greatness via the Internet. I have been on the Internet before Al Gore invented it.&quot;</p> </blockquote> <p>Tom sold Veretekk in 2014 because the technology was old but he was already planning and working on a&nbsp; replacement which&nbsp; would become a marketing force multiplier ensuring that anyone using the new marketing system would benefit from the built linking systems to poplar social marketing systems.</p> <p>Tom had been supported all this time by a long term business partner , however they had struggled to find capable engineers capable of converting ideas into systems and keeping them maintained. During 2013 his partner took over the engineering of the new system called MarketHive. Somewhere along the line Mike lost sight of his dream and as Peter Thiel&nbsp; says in his book <strong>zero to one, </strong>you need to have people committed to the company.</p> <blockquote> <p>&quot;They should enjoy going to the office so much formal business hours become obsolete and nobody watches the clock.&quot;</p> </blockquote> <p>The sudden void in a key area of the business needed to be filled quickly, so Tom turned to his group of MarketHive founder members, a group of people who share his vision. Many members had been associated with him for a number of years and he started to ask who had skill sets to fill the void. Within days a new team started to form. A new engineer was&nbsp; appointed from the ranks of MarketHive Members. System reviews were carried out and work prioritised. Within a short time updates have started to&nbsp; appear and other members of the MarketHive community are stepping up to assist wherever they can. This is what team work is about and I believe this demonstrates that&nbsp; MarketHive has the right team.</p> Sat, 12 Sep 2015 17:03:49 -0600 How to Create a Customer-Centric Culture <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">What makes the great companies so great? It's the service and experience the customer receives when doing business with them. The companies that get it are customer-centric. They put the customer at the heart of decisions, ideas, marketing, system design and more.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="customer centric companies" width="550" /></a></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div><div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">It is definitely not the product. The product can be truly amazing, even a lifestyle changer, but that's not what makes a company great. Take for example, cable television. Cable TV is truly amazing. When I was growing up, there were only four channels from which to choose. Today we have hundreds of channels to choose from with amazing high-definition clarity. We can record shows on the cable box to watch later, or watch movies and other programs 'on demand,' whenever we want to watch them. This is an amazing product. However, the cable TV industry, as a whole, delivers an abysmal customer experience. One of the less-than-customer-friendly policies: Asking a person to stay home on a workday to meet the cable TV installer during a four-hour window. That hardly seems customer-centric.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">On the other hand, there are companies that sell the same products as everyone else, but the customer experience they offer really does set them apart. Ace Hardware is one of the best examples of this, having been awarded the JD Power award for highest customer satisfaction in its industry eight years in a row. These smaller, independently owned hardware stores compete against big box stores such as Home Depot and Lowe's and sell many of the same items as the big stores.&nbsp;</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;"> </span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">However, many Ace Hardware stores are only one-tenth the size of one of these larger stores. Imagine an 8,000-square-foot store going up against an 80,000-square-foot store. And, these larger stores outspend Ace Hardware in advertising dollars by 30 to 1. Yet, Ace Hardware thrives in this competitive environment. So, what does Ace Hardware have to offer? The experience, which comes in the form of helpful customer service. As an Ace customer in Seattle put it, 'Even though the prices can be, but are not necessarily, higher, the convenience and help are worth it.'</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">Ace doesn't promise 'friendly' service. It promises helpful service, and there's a difference. It's the way Ace stores engage their customers, provide knowledgeable employees who help them with their projects, and deliver a higher-level customer experience.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">Consider several reasons to create a customer-centric culture. I'll argue that customer service can make the difference between a company's ultimate success or failure. It can mean the difference between having loyal, repeat customers or one-time-only customers. And, it can mean the difference between customers' rave reviews or online rants.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><strong>Steven Hodgkiss</strong></span></div> <div><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">Free Inbound Marketing Tools from MarketHive</span></div> <div><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">See <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>MarketHive</strong></a> for more information and to register</span></div> Mon, 03 Aug 2015 09:53:50 -0600 Why do Customer Centric Companies Stand Out? <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">The bottom line is that customer-centric companies stand out. They are more desirable for consumers to do business with and more enjoyable places for employees to work. The top-rated customer service companies are often the best companies to work for as well. The reason is that the culture within the company offers a similar experience to what the customer experiences on the outside. Some things to consider about customer-centric companies:</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">Customer-centric companies empower employees to make decisions that are for the benefit of the customer. They have guidelines versus rules and policies, and the mindset that if what the customer is asking for isn't illegal or immoral, won&#8217;t cost the company money (although sometimes that&#8217;s still OK), and won&#8217;t harm the company&#8217;s reputation, then it should be considered.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="customer centric companies" width="550" /></a></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">Customer-centric companies hire people who fit the culture and have personalities that align with the company&#8217;s core values, mission and vision. Skills and experience are important, of course, but these high-performing companies are looking for other qualities as well. It takes the right combination of skill, personality, and attitude.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt;">Customer-centric companies invest a lot of time and money into soft skills training such as customer service and relationship building. Technical and product training are important, but constant reinforcement of the &#8220;people side&#8221; of the business is equally important, if not even more so. Customer-centric companies know the importance of their employees, and take a &#8220;people first&#8221; approach. They develop their people at a level that keeps them engaged and enthusiastic about taking care of the company&#8217;s customers.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><strong>Steven Hodgkiss</strong></span></div> <div><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">Free Inbound Marketing Tools from MarketHive</span></div> <div><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">See <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>MarketHive</strong></a> for more information and to register</span></div> Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:11:59 -0600 A Product or Shift That Changed My Business <p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">I have spent my first couple years making money online pitching opportunities. The interesting this is when I first starting doing this in 2005, it actually worked! But not anymore. Why? Because the market changed. Too many work from home opportunities emerged like a volcano explosion so the offer stop looking so appealing and started to become annoying with so many business pitches. In fact, the only time pitching works anymore is if there is value included.</p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">In order to prospect new people into your business there is a need to develop rapport or responsiveness with an audience. This is the key to making money online. If you are not providing value to your readers or your list, then you are not going to make any money online or offline.</p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"><span data-mce-style="font-size: 12pt;" style="font-size: 12pt;">So, How do you do that?</span></p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">The best way to develop rapport with an audience is by offering value, &nbsp;give them something they can relate to, or offer a solution to a common problem they may have. All these type of solutions should be directly related to your niche. The same is true when you walk into a store to buy something. The employee of the store approaches you (the customer) in an attempt to build rapport. You are greeted and offered assistance. They are quick to answer any questions you have and make you feel comfortable without pressure getting to know your wants and needs and then getting to place where they can solve your problem. This is particularly true in car sales. Love car salesmen or hate them. The fact is the good ones don't try to sell. Let me repeat that, the successful car salesman who make over $50k per month do not try to sell cars.</p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"><span data-mce-style="font-size: 12pt;" style="font-size: 12pt;">What do they do?&nbsp;</span></p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">They build rapport and solve your car problems based on the information you provide them with. Every car salesman who can solve a problem with a customer sells a car that moment. Whether the car is sold or not, that customer is a new prospect to their list of contacts. Are you starting to see the connection here to network marketing? Same approach..</p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">&nbsp;<br /></p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">This is the very shift that changed my business and approach to it. For a long time I thought I was suppose to build relationships with people before presenting my offer. This is the wrong thing to do. You do not want to enter the friend zone with any prospect. This is a business. The main goal here is to get them to respond to you. As long as their is a connection a sale can happen.</p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">The easiest way for us network marketers to to this is by building an email list of people who opt-in to a landing page. The trick is driving the right traffic to these opt-in pages. Solo Ads and traffic brokers are the best way to do this fast for a small fee. There is nothing better than done for you traffic. I have my own hidden gems out there to share with my team for duplication purposes. The one thing to always remember is your buyers are in your list. They will respond if you present them with good information of value.</p><p style="color: #333333; font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">&nbsp;</p> Thu, 04 Jun 2015 21:49:28 -0600 2 Powerful Websites About Inbound Marketing <div class="challIntro">These websites provide powerful tools and resources for entrepreneurs to market their business.

So many times, people are too concerned about the content of their blog instead of just writing about what they, themselves are passionate about. Being a good blogger just means to tell your story, whatever that is. My Recommendation is to write about your passion and other things that interest you. Second, make sure all the content of your blog is a postive tone. You dont want to come off as negative unless you are giving an honest review about something. Even then, try and avoid it. In time, People will come to your blog because they will be searching for the information you are writing about. You see this is the power of the blog. The search engines will send their bots to your website, scan it for content and then index it accordingly into the search engines according to revelance, backlinks, and other mechanics of your blog (you don't have to worry about that stuff right now-just start writing content).

I had to take a moment to reframe my mindset. You see, it is not about "If I" or "can I" anymore. Now it is about "I will" and "I can". Before we move into my future perspective of what my families life will look like in 5+ years, I thought it was necessary to share this.</p><p>I will own my dream home in 5-10 years. I will keep doing what I am currently doing to reach this goal. I can picture the 20 foot ceilings on the first floor, wrap around staircase, 5 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, home theater, and man cave (got to have that). A nice size backyard for the kids to play in (I will hire a landscaping company to take care of the yard). I will have 4 vehicles&nbsp; and everything else needed to live worry free. I will be philanthropic in nature always giving back to the environment and community in efforts to help. You know what they say, "you can't keep what you have unless you give it away."</p><p>This will be a nice change of pace in this time. Along with my online business, I will take a large amount of funds and establish/own a residential behavioral health treatment center that will provide the highest level of care for people suffering from co-occuring disorders and substance abuse. My mission is clear, to help as many people as possible create a better way to live. Money is not the primary concern here. This is all about helping people reach their lifestyle and financial goals. So now, imagine the future if you had everything you ever wanted. And, all you had to do to get it was create a strategy and go after it.</p><p>I imagine my own future to have developed large teams of people (in the thousands) who were working hard to achieve their own goals and grow their own entrpreneurial lifestyle.</p><p>So where would you live if you had everything you ever wanted?</p><p>I think I would live humble yet rewarded. I do care about flashy material stuff. I did mention a few above. But, I really just want my family to be happy and have all the resources I could possibly provide for them to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This vision can only happen when other people are being assisted and mentored to make this happen who are on my team journey. This future is going to happen.</p><p>For my business, I will enroll 2 new members a day. I will blog daily, and I will market daily and drive traffic to my opportunity. This is somewhat of an affirmation. And it will be done. I am not sure how other people feel about their career. Personally, I love what I do. I love the company I work for. However, I am tired of making wealthy people richer. I am tired of not being paid what I believe I am worth. So, it is time to raise the bar and go after the financial and spiritual lifestyle I want.</p><p>I am sure many of you are reading this post and can agree on some level what I am talking about. Life can be challenging when we let other people control how much money we earn, what kind of insurance we get, what kind of car we drive, what house or apartment we can live in, how much credit we can have, and so on. The list can keep going. The point is, I am DONE with that. No more. I live not only imagine my future. I will live that future starting today. I will live my dreams. I have a 90 day challenge I am doing to reach an income of $7500 p/month extra income. I have 90 days to make it happen. I have the tools, training and mindset to make that happen. This goal should be reached by July 26, 2015. I will not make excuses for why I cannot do it. I will do it.&nbsp; Now I am challenging all you readers to make it happen for you too. Let's set your goal and make it happen. Yes, I am challenging you! Are you up for it? Or are you satified with average life?</p>&nbsp; Fri, 01 May 2015 15:04:20 -0600 Determination: Live Your Dreams;tid=MH <img src="" alt="" /><img src="" class="size-medium wp-image-80 aligncenter" alt="" /><p> Everyday, someone is looking to live a dream beyond their imagination. Sometimes dreams are only thought about with no direct action to make it a reality. I ask you to make your dreams a reality. This is what I have chosen to do just recently. No more complaints about life or other people, no more negative thinking. The time has come to start doing things and living life differently to make these dreams a reality. That's right I am calling it right now. 1 year from now, I will be a million dollar earner. Now, I know that is a bold statement. Some people will have a tough time understanding how this can be possible. There is a good chance that these people do not have the mindset for which I will achieve. After reading, listening, and watching wealthy people speak, they all say the same thing about success. To make it short, </p><blockquote>we become what we think about. - Earl Nightingale</blockquote><div> The wealthy think about their goals and how to achieve them while the poor do not have goals and complain about what they don't have. In general, we all need to have PMA-positive mental attitude all day everyday. I am dreaming big to live my dream lifestyle. I know what that income needs to be each month and it is over $30K. Is this achievable? Of course it is. As long as their is honest belief and action taking place to achieve that goal. by scientific law, it will happen. I believe it will happen. I am looking for other people who want to dream big with me. Those people who want a better life for themselves and their family. This is the dream of financial security and freedom to do all the things you want to do and see all the place you want to see in your lifetime. I know for myself their is plenty of things I want to achieve in lifetime before I leave this earth. Those goals I will achieve. Now is the time to stop making excuses for certain situations and start taking action to make things happen. When I look at this ion the bigger picture the primary goal is a complete change in mindset. I do this by only listening to positive audios by successful people so my brain can be reprogrammed to respond with a millionaire mindset. In doing so, I would like to share with everyone of you my success as it happens. My stories of progress shall be laid out in front of the world to see on this very blog. You WILL see my success. You WILL see how I build teams of thousands of people who are ready to make this type of change in their own life and join me. This is a movement I am starting to help do my part changing the world to become a better place. </div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The vehicle is present to make this happen for anyone. AS a matter of fact a blog is a great place to start. As a matter of fact, a blog is probably the most powerful tool the internet can provide for anyone despite reasons for using it. Take for example Paris Hilton. Here is a man who started blogging about celebrities for fun and now has one of the most viewed blogs in the world. And,. Paris is very wealthy now because he wrote with passion. I have been asked before what I was passionate about. Looking back on it, I never really had a true idea of what that was. There were always things that I liked and enjoyed. Passion was a different story. My passion has emerged itself after working through my own mindset training. My Passion is to help other people achieve success in their life. Success does not always have to do with money. In fact, earning money is a direct result of being successful. Money does not create success. Success creates money.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong style="font-size: 12pt;">So how do we become successful? </strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Success is 80% mentality and 20% action. Set a goal for yourself. Ask the question; What is it that you want? Once you know what that is, you can then start working towards getting that result. May sound simplier than it is to sum. However, by human nature we tend to complicate things and create mental roadblocks from achieving such a goal. My goal in the next 90 days is to reach an income of $7500 per month as an entrepreneur. That means by by July 28th 2015 this will be my income per month. Now it is time to lay the ground work to make that happen. I have a family of 5. A wife and 3 children. Not sure what your situation is, but I am getting really tired of making wealthy people richer. The time is now to take action, flip the script and start living as if. Retrain the brain and the rest will follow. My dreams are to see Ireland and travel through Europe and South America and buy property in Bora Bora to spend my summers. My goal is to achieve this in 4 years. I have found all the tools, training, mentorship and support to make this happen. For all those who are with me click on the call to action below and get plugged in to a life changing system. I am doing this, that's it, no more excuses- I will see you on a stage somewhere sharing my success. &nbsp; </div><div>&nbsp;</div> Fri, 01 May 2015 15:01:49 -0600
