There’s Gotta Be Something More

The Story Begins On Your Way
Into Work One Day . . .

It is a Monday morning, the start of a 9 to 5 work week …

Imagine you are sitting in a traffic jam, listening to the radio, with a 22 mile commute each direction between your home and office. You decide to listen to the news on the radio to find out what and where the traffic jam is. Traffic jam may not be the best way to describe it, think parking lot on the highway. You are literally not moving an inch. The commute, without traffic, is 1 hour each way.

What Is A Forum?

forum

An Internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. Chat rooms, by contrast are usually just one line of text. Forums allow people to post messages. Messages are attached to threads, threads are generally topic specific. Message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible. Threads can be replied to by many people.

Some forums require a sign-in in order to participate and leave messages. Different forums have different rules, for instance promoting in some forums is considered spam. Other forums may have a thread (topic) where people can promote anything they want.

The fact that the messages and replies to it stay in place, people can participate at different times. In other words, people do not all need to be online at the same time to be able to participate. Chats require participants to be online at the same time to participate and generally the chats are not saved offline in order to be accessed later.

The forum owner has the capability to give different people different levels of access. Generally speaking only administration level and/or moderator levels can remove postings. Some forums require a moderator to approve a posting prior to it being visible, others allow visibility immediately.

A good example of an Internet Marketing Forum is the Warrior Forum. This forum does require logging in to be able to post, guests can read through the various threads. This forum has a significant participation. People from all over the world post about a variety of topics having to do with making money online. The forum is recommended for research purposes, however, it is extremely easy to get caught up in buying and buying and buying all the latest and greatest products.

Everything you need to learn you can learn at Wealthy Affiliate. The training is top notch and thorough. Included with the training is access to ask questions and chat with other members.

What Is An E-Commerce Website (B2C)?

ComputerShoppingCart

B2C, or business-to-consumer, is the type of commerce transaction in which businesses sell products or services to consumers. Traditionally, this could refer to individuals shopping for clothes for themselves at the mall, diners eating in a restaurant, or subscribing to pay-per-view TV at home. More recently, the term B2C refers to the online selling of products, or e-tailing, in which manufacturers or retailers sell their products to consumers over the Internet.

It is one of four categories of e-commerce, along with B2B (business to business), C2B (customer to business) and C2C (customer to customer).

The B2C model is likely the model that most people are familiar with. If you’ve ever purchased an item online for your own use, you’ve e-tailed. Pretty much any product can be sold through e-tailing, also known as virtual storefronts. The concept was first developed in 1979 by Michael Aldrich, an English inventor, who connected a television set to a transaction processing computer with a telephone line and coined the term “teleshopping.”

Generally a B2C E-commerce site has a shopping cart element built in. Affiliate Marketing is providing a service or products via online websites so these are also considered to be B2C.

The next examples are of website I supported for a couple of years.

Here is an example of a B2C Informational Website. This website supports the services and products available at the brick and mortar store. Click on the image to see a larger image.

What Is A Portal Website (B2B)?

mscb2b

Business-to-business (B2B) are generally websites or instant messaging tools used and developed within corporations. B2B websites would generally be implemented in a consulting role to organizations.

Business-to-business (B2B) describes commerce transactions between businesses, such as between a manufacturer and a wholesaler, or between a wholesaler and a retailer. Contrasting terms are business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-government (B2G). B2B branding is a term used in marketing.

The overall volume of B2B (Business-to-Business) transactions is much higher than the volume of B2C transactions. The primary reason for this is that in a typical supply chain there will be many B2B transactions involving sub components or raw materials, and only one B2C transaction, specifically sale of the finished product to the end customer. For example, an automobile manufacturer makes several B2B transactions such as buying tires, glass for windscreens, and rubber hoses for its vehicles. The final transaction, a finished vehicle sold to the consumer, is a single (B2C) transaction.

B2B is also used in the context of communication and collaboration. Many businesses are now using social media to connect with their consumers (B2C); however, they are now using similar tools within the business so employees can connect with one another. When communication is taking place amongst employees, this can be referred to as “B2B” communication.

What Is A Website?

One can compare the process of building a website to the building of a retail store.

housewebsiteexample

To build a retail store one needs 3 main structures:

1) A Parcel of Land with an address – a Domain Name (URL).
2) A Foundation to hold the store – a Hosting Provider.
3) The retail store itself – a building (WordPress) with different rooms holding content (Niche).

It is an interface on the Internet. Any time you click on to an Internet Browser, (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari) you are looking at a website.

A hosting provider can provide a number of vital services to individuals and companies that want to create a presence online. Unlike an Internet service provider (ISP) that is responsible for your connection to the Web, a hosting provider gives you a place in the World Wide Web to send visitors, place files, build shopping carts, hold pictures and other vital website needs. Web hosting providers come in many shapes and forms, and target users of varying experience levels, but all provide certain basic functions.

What Is WordPress?

wordpressorg

WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 22.0% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.

A content management system (CMS) is a computer application that allows publishing, editing and modifying content, organizing, deleting as well as maintenance from a central interface. Such systems of content management provide procedures to manage workflow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual steps or an automated cascade. CMSs have been available since the late 1990s.

CMSs are often used to run websites containing blogs, news, and shopping. Many corporate and marketing websites use CMSs. CMSs typically aim to avoid the need for hand coding, but may support it for specific elements or entire pages.

The Journey Really Starts –
“What’s Your Dream?”

Pretty Woman came in at #2 for the Most Popular Feature Films Released In 1990

The Happy Man in Pretty Woman can be seen crossing the road pushing a shopping cart. His shopping cart is full of stuff suggesting he is homeless. What he says is what catches your attention.

Happy Man: … “What’s your dream? … Some dreams come true, some don’t; but keep on dreamin’ – … Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin’.”

Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech on August 28, 1963.
