The present globe financial system brings people, from around the world, to look for a second source of income. The globalization phenomenon makes it feasible. You may literally sit anywhere on the globe and work for someone, who is living in another continent. Physical borders do not exist in the virtual world.

What are the most simple, cheap and fast ways to make money online?

This article demonstrates a few alternatives that combine two major benefits; how to earn money online and work from home. Read and choose the one option, you find more appealing and relevant to you.

1. Create a digital product and put it for sale.

Each and every skill or unique expertise you have got is like an asset. If you want to make money online without investment, you should translate your skill to a virtual product, as opposed to a physical product. Compose a manual, a textbook or produce a brief film that describes your special abilities. The possibilities are endless; create an instructive guidebook, which focuses on a specific subject and explains in details how to set up, produce, purchase, promote or even behave. Do you need more specific examples? Write a cookbook of special recipes; instructions for how to buy cheap flight tickets, how to create a website, or how to grow organic food. There is a demand for almost anything among the enormous world population.

As soon as your electronic text is completed (no need to make duplicates, only to save in PDF) put it for sale. It may seem complicated, but once you finish reading this article you will realize that it is actually quite simple. All you have to do is put your virtual product for sale on the right platform and other people will sell it on your behalf.

Google for Clickbank site and become a member of a major trade application that deals with internet items. Sign in and follow the instructions for creating your own selling page.

How does the selling platform work?

In order to sell your product, you have to share the revenue. There is no payment in advanced, but once a product is sold, a part of the income is transferred to the person who sold it. This kind of cooperation is called affiliation. The Clickbank’s affiliates are your free salesmen, enabling you to work from home and make money online. The money will be deposited to your Clickbank account from where you can withdraw it.

2. Sell other people products.

If you prefer to make money online by selling products rather than creating them, then you should learn how to make money as an affiliate.

How to Become an Affiliate?

* Find Clickbank’s site, discussed before, go through a short registration process and have a look at the marketplace, which actually a catalog of all items on sale, classified by subjects.

* Choose products you find interesting (it will facilitate the sale); read their description and learn about the commission they offer.

* Get a personal URL, called hop link. Once someone visits the selling page through your URL and buys the product, you automatically gain the commission.

Tips on how to advertise and get clients to use your URL?

* Email the link to your friends.

* Post he link on your internet site.

* Post the link on suitable forums.

* Buy internet ads, such as Google Adwords.

* Use Article Marketing.

The easiest, most efficient and cheapest way of all is Article Marketing. If you are reading this article, then this system works, since I am using it…

Write an article about the product you want to promote, insert your hop link, and publish it in an Article Directory website. This useful assistance has no charge and it gives you the opportunity to make a contact with numerous individuals, who are curious or intrigues by the topic. These readers are your potential buyers.

You need to aspire to submit as many publications as possible, in divers Article directories, since it will bring more potential customers to your chosen item selling page, directly from your hop link. It should be noted that you cannot publish the same article in more than one directory. You have to rewrite the article to avoid content duplication.

Can you work from home and make money online in a simpler way?

Yes you can, by using Article Marketing services. Article marketing service enables you to write only one original article, rewrite it with the assistance of the special software, and then have it submitted by the service to dozens of Article directories and blogs.

I have often been praised for the branding of our private investigation business which comes across as nothing short of top-notch and world class among the deluge of competitors out there whom we have surpassed long back both in revenues as well as market share. And what is the secret of our success? Here’s the answer: Branding!

What I am going to talk about today in this blog post holds true not just for a private investigation business like ours but for any business. Too often small to medium enterprise business owners in India suffer from a lack of foresight when it comes to branding their business. Too often they are stuck with a poorly designed logo, a pathetic old fashioned website while the rest of their marketing communications is hopelessly outdated. What is the impression that a business like this projects to the outside world – in one word: CHEAP & UNPROFESSIONAL.

It’s All About Perception
How would someone perceive you if you came dressed to an important meeting in tacky, unkempt, ill-fitting and unsuitable attire? We all know the impression that a premium car like a Jaguar makes vs. say a Maruti. You wouldn’t be caught dead driving to a party or a wedding reception in a Maruti would you?! So if you can afford to spend lakhs and crores every year on your attire, accessories, the latest cars, doing up your home interiors and so on, why not spend the same amount of money on clothing your business in the best designer clothes so that you make a smart and favourable impression upon the entire world!?

A lot of times the problem with small time business folks lies in their mindset which is strongly resistant to change. Business owners stuck in the old mindset want to do everything themselves – right from designing the logo, to doing up the interiors of their offices! The result most times is nothing short of terrible. Here’s an advice – Leave the work of branding and marketing of your business to the experts. Sorry if you think that logo that you have created is the best logo in the world! Its isn’t The rest of the world will soon be laughing at you when they open that flash website that you have co-designed with your web designer featuring those blinking eyes and the gaudy neon colours!

It is a smart businessman or woman who realises the value of branding and does not hesitate to pay top bucks to dress up his / her business because at the end of the day your brand is your business! The poorer the perception of your brand, the poorer you will be when it comes to reaping the long term value of your business assets.

Branding is Your Company’s Personality
Using the services of a marketing expert is expensive but can be hugely profitable in the long run. This person will be able to assist in developing your advertising,

including business cards, stationery, and brochures. To assist in your marketing endeavors, “branding” of your business is essential. Branding, a commonly used term throughout the business world, essentially means to create an identifiable entity that makes a promise of value. It means that you have created a consciousness, an image, and an awareness of your business. It is your company’s personality.

A brand is also a kind of promise. It is a set of fundamental principles as understood by anyone who comes into contact with a company. A brand is an organization’s “reason for being.” It is how that reason is expressed through the various communications to its key audiences, including customers, shareholders, employees, and analysts. A brand should also represent the desired attributes of a company’s products, services, and initiatives. Many businesses try but fail to create a successful brand. Here are ten of the most common mistakes:

1. Not thinking analytically.

Too many companies think of branding as marketing or as having a catch phrase or a logo. It is more than simply vying for attention. A brand warrants attention on a consistent basis, and represents something that your customer wants, but does not get, from your competitors. For example, it could be providing the best customer service in your industry — not just through your tagline or logo — but by actually providing the best customer service in your industry.

2. Not maintaining your brand.

Too often, in a shaky economy, businesses are quick to change or alter their identity. Too much of this confuses your steady customers. For guidance, think of big brands: Nike, for instance has used “Just Do It” as a slogan for years. One rule of thumb is that it is when you have become tired of your logo, tagline, or branding efforts, that they begin to sink in with customers.

3. Trying to appease everyone.

You will never be able to brand yourself in such a way that everyone will like you. Typically, the best you can do is to focus on the niche market for your product.

4. Not knowing who you really are.

If you are not the fastest overnight delivery service in the world, do not profess to be. Too many business owners think that they are providing something that they do not provide. Know your strengths and weaknesses through honest analysis of what you do best.

5. Not fully committing to branding.

Often business owners let the marketing and advertising departments handle such things as branding, while others work on sales and other important parts of the business. Sales and branding, however, are tied together as integral aspects of your business. Many Fortune 500 companies are where they are today because smart branding made them household names.

6. Not sharing the joke.

If only the people in your office get a joke, it is not going to play to a large audience. The same holds true for branding. If your campaign is created for you and not “them,” your brand will not succeed.

7. Not having a dedicated marketing plan.

Many companies come up with ideas to market themselves and establish a brand identity but have neither the resources nor a plan for how they will reach their audience. You must have a well-thought-out marketing plan in place before your branding strategy will work.

8. Using too much jargon.

Business-to-business-based companies are most guilty of piling on the jargon. From benchmark to strategic partnering to value added, jargon does not benefit branding. If anything, it muddles your message.

9. Trying too hard to be different.

Being different for the sake of being different is not branding. Yes, you will be noticed, but not necessarily in a way that increases sales.

10. Not knowing when you have them.

Companies that have succeeded in branding need to know when to spend fewer resources on establishing their brand, while continuing to maintain that which they have established. Monitor the results of your branding campaign. If your small business is a local household word, you can spend more time maintaining your professional image.

Not unlike a business plan, a marketing plan can play an important role in the success of your small business. Although the plan is primarily for your purposes, it should include:

* your products and/or services
* your demographic audience
* methods of selling
* pricing
* your budget
* your geographic market
* your competition and your competitive edge
* an overview of the marketing tools available: media outlets, public relations (PR) possibilities, community activities, conferences, potential speaking engagements, and so on.

Create a Marketing Strategy

Do you want to be a Bajaj or a Ferrari?

Nothing wrong in being a Bajaj. They are a populist brand while a Ferrari is elitist. It’s all about how they have positioned themselves in the market. You have to decide who is your target audience when you start the process of branding and marketing. The final objective of your marketing plan is to ‘position’ yourself and thus define whom you are trying to reach, what you are selling, how you will reach this audience, and how much it will cost to do so. You will then devise a means of communicating your message to your audience. Positioning your brand can also be a good filtering mechanism for removing the cheap clients from those who want to go with the market leaders and rest assured that their job will be done. For example I have positioned Alliance One as a premium trustworthy private intelligence company unlike the scores of janta private detective agencies that one can find on Justdial. So the clients and customers who are looking for a bargain are automatically weeded out when they look at our website thereby saving our time on unfruitful customers. Those looking for cheap services will not contact us because they know that we are premium and they cannot afford us whereas those who value expertise, dedication and top notch service will go for our services because they know that even though we charge 50% more than what low rung private investigators charge in the long run they end up saving because the quality and results that they will get is unparalleled. It is the difference in the quality between a Ferarri and a Bajaj Autorickshaw! There just isn’t any comparison! People who buy Ferraris do not bargain. They know the value that they are getting for their money.

For example, if your plan is to increase the sale of your brand of healthy popcorn to a teen market, you might show how you will distribute samples at school activities, sponsor a series of events for teens, and propose articles on the health benefits of your popcorn to teen-oriented magazines and web sites.

Within your marketing plan, show how you will use diverse methods to get your message across, including different forms of media, product samples, sponsorship, and so on. Also, maintain a level of marketing at all times. In busier seasons, you will need a more aggressive approach; during the slower seasons, you may just want to keep your brand in front of your audience. Define such a strategy in your plan.

Define Your Image

Professional or Stereotypical
Before developing or revising your sales and marketing material be sure to properly identify your market — not everyone is your market — then build your business image and brand to align with the market you want to capture. Private investigators often think and /or want to look like “PIs.” For instance, Amit’s father’s first logo was the “spy in the trench coat.” This is the image television created for the private investigator, however, it is not the image professional lawyers, insurance adjustors, and business professionals look for when hiring a private investigator. They are looking for professionalism when hiring a private investigator. They are not looking for the spy in the back alley. They do not care how you do what you do. They care about the results of your work.

Attorneys care about winning their cases. They want a private investigator who can not only conduct a thorough investigation but also provide them a concise, well-written report and be credible to their client and on the witness stand. The image you choose for your agency should not be based on what you think or what you like. It should be based on what your market wants. Another common mistake made on a regular basis is the text in brochures and on websites. When people are new in business, they have a tendency to create a brochure and/or website that tells all about them and the services they provide.

First, people do not buy services, they buy benefits. You might be asking what the difference is. A service is just that, a service. It focuses on what you provide. A benefit is what the prospect will receive from the service you provide. It should evoke a positive emotion and create a desire within the prospect to want what you provide. It has to be about them. People are tuned into the radio station and are listening to their ad but they are thinking – what’s in it for me. So it is important to talk about what is in it for them instead of what you do. For example, the service could be a background check. The benefit would be to decrease employee turnover and increase profit margin.

Second, prospective clients do not care about who you are until they know you can provide something they need.

Third, prospective clients do not care about your past accolades. They want to know what you can do for them today. To create effective marketing pieces, the focus needs to be not on you and your business but on your client market, their needs, and how you can fulfill those needs. This takes knowing and understanding your market.

Marketing is an Attitude
Part of marketing is an attitude. Marketing is not a cut and dry issue. It is very complex. There are many ways to market. Shotgun marketing is always a waste of time and money. Effective marketing should be planned and executed with a specific message to a specific demographic. The real attitude should come into play concerning your overall business image, in other words how you are perceived by your clients and your market.

Summary

I leave you with a last thought that can alter the future of your business dramatically and create a brand and an asset that will last for generations – Remember just about everything in life is about presentation and the devil lies in the details. And that means paying attention to the design of your brochures, your business cards, your website, the way your company’s receptionist speaks on the phone and so on. Every small thing sends the message loud and clear to everyone who comes in contact with you about you – of whether you are struggling and cheap or whether you are successful. Guess what, people do not want to do business with struggling or cheap people! This does not give them a sense of security and confidence. People want to hire successful people. They want to feel confident in those they hire and know that the job will be done properly and professionally.

L’ESQUISSE ou L’ART DU FLOU

L’Art Moderne, annoncé bien avant le début du 20è siècle par les pré-impressionnistes, les impressionnistes et les post-impressionnistes, a été un facteur tout à fait remarquable de renouvellement des formes, dans la peinture européenne.
L’Art a toujours été, une manière de rêver le monde réel. Mais les nouvelles techniques de l’Art Moderne, s’éloignent toutes, de manière très intentionnelle, volontariste, de la représentation exacte du réel.
Les peintres tendent à créer un art dans lequel l’interprétation du réel l’emporte sur sa reproduction.
L’artiste moderne ne reproduit plus guère le réel, il le rêve, ou l’invente. Ces tendances ont abouti à l’art non figuratif, autrement appelé l’art abstrait.
Ce renouvellement des formes en peinture a apporté de nouvelles possibilités, très intéressantes, et très belles, d’expression artistique.
Parmi les techniques développées au cours du 19è siècle l’Esquisse a été une des meilleures expressions de l’Art du Flou.
L’Art du Flou a été pratiqué de manière géniale par Léonard de Vinci. Le "Sfumato" est, dans le cadre d’une peinture très figurative et parfaitement finie, comme la Joconde, les Vierges au rocher, ou Saint Jean Baptiste, une ébauche d’art du flou.
L’Esquisse a été dans l’histoire de la peinture un projet, une étude préparatoire, qui permettait à l’artiste de s’assurer de la cohérence et de l’équilibre de son tableau fini. Dans ce cas, le plus souvent, le flou n’est qu’une approximation, un brouillon, le témoin d’un art incomplet qui demande à être achevé.
Mais de nombreux artistes, au cours des siècles passés, ont parfaitement compris que l’esquisse pouvait, parfois, exceptionnellement, être une oeuvre achevée.
C’est à dire une oeuvre dont une grande majorité de spectateurs, experts ou non, ressentaient impérieusement que RIEN ne devait lui être ajoutée. Ce n’est pas une définition mathématique, mais c’est la meilleure.
L’esquisse n’est une oeuvre achevée que lorsqu’elle est créatrice d’une atmosphère singulière, particulièrement suggestive, porteuse d’une poésie qui lui est propre, unique. Quand il apparaît de manière évidente que plus de précision dans le dessin fermerait les portes à l’imaginaire, au mystère, et détruirait un équilibre subtile entre le rêve et la réalité.
Le dessin trop précis peut en effet fermer les portes à l’imaginaire, alors que le flou qui caractérise l’esquisse peut les ouvrir. Les photographes le savent bien aussi : Le flou peut être simplement flou, mais il peut aussi être une invitation à ressentir un mystère et à participer à une énigme. Le spectateur est invité à meubler par son imagination le flou qui lui est proposé.
Mais c’est une alchimie dont seuls les grands artistes, peuvent, exceptionnellement, pénétrer le secret.
Le grand maître de cette technique, et celui qui, le plus précocement, l’a poussé le plus loin, a été sans doute William Turner (1775-1851).
Delacroix a été aussi, un peu après Turner, un des grands précurseurs de l’art de l’esquisse. Par exemple dans la "mort de Sadarnapale" mais aussi dans bien d’autres tableaux. Mais Delacroix est aussi un exemple des limites de cette technique. Toutes les techniques rencontrent, à un moment ou à un autre, leurs limites.
L’Art de l’esquisse est redoutablement difficile, car il ne suffit pas de dessiner schématiquement un sujet pour faire une belle oeuvre. De même qu’en photographie de nos jours, il ne suffit pas de dessiner et de peindre flou pour créer une oeuvre d’art.
Le flou peut n’être qu’une esquisse ou une approximation, dont finalement la valeur marchande ne tient qu’à la signature d’un grand nom.
Il est vrai que l’esquisse peut dégager une certaine puissance expressive, avoir une puissance évocatrice, une poésie de l’inachevé. Une force expressive que le tableau, bien fini, bien dessiné et bien peint, achevé, peut effectivement perdre. Mais la magie poétique de l’art du flou ne peut pas être systématique.
C’est aussi beaucoup une question de mode. Une habitude du regard.
L’esthétique de notre époque est un peu trop focalisée sur l’esquisse.
On finit par ne plus voir que des esquisses dans les galeries de peintures modernes ou contemporaines.
En réalité les artistes ne sont pas les seuls responsables de cette situation. Au 19è siècle la société occidentale est entrée dans une culture qui fait de la réussite, matérielle, économique, et de l’Argent ses valeurs principales. Dès lors des esquisses, qui ne seraient pas sorties des brouillons personnels de l’artiste, pendant les siècles précédents, sont devenues de marchandises sources de profits. Ces marchandises, se trouvent même dans les musées. Picasso avait très bien compris ce mécanisme économique.
Bien sûr cette évolution est habillée de Grands Principes : Il n’est pas question d’Argent, mais de l’Artiste, de la Liberté de Création, du Progrès des Arts, d’une "sensibilité nouvelle", de "vivre avec son temps" etc…
Cette omniprésence de l’esquisse reflète non seulement des habitudes du regard mais des valeurs éthiques. L’Art du Flou est devenu aussi l’Art de faire, vite, de l’Argent.
Valeurs morales positives ou négatives. Nous vivons dans un monde un peu trop pressé !! Pour aller où ?

THE SKETCH OR THE ART OF BLUR

Modern Art, announced well before the beginning of the 20th century by the pré-impressionnists, impressionists and post-impressionists, was a factor quite remarkable renewal forms in European painting.
Art has always been a way to dream the real world. But the new techniques of modern art, are moving away all so very intentional, deliberate, of the exact representation of reality.
The painters tend to create an art in which the interpretation of reality trumps its reproduction.
The modern artist is hardly reproduces reality, it’s dream or invent. These trends have resulted in non-figurative art, also called abstract art.
This renewal forms in painting is total. He brought new possibilities of artistic expression.
Among the techniques developed during the 19th century, the sketch was one of the best expressions of the Art of Blur.
The Art of Blur has been practiced ingeniously by Leonardo da Vinci. The "Sfumato" is in the context of a very figurative and perfectly finished painting, like the Mona Lisa, the Virgin on the rock, or John the Baptist, a draft of art of blur..
The sketch was in the history of painting, a project, a preparatory study, which allowed the artist to ensure the coherence and balance of the finished table. In this case, usually, the blur is only an approximation, a preform, a draft, witnessed an incomplete art which needs to be completed.
But many artists, over the centuries, have understood perfectly that the sketch was sometimes, exceptionally, be a finished work.
That is to say a work, of which a large majority of spectators, experts or not, imperiously felt that NOTHING was to be added to it. This is not a mathematical definition, but this is the best.
The sketch is a finished work, only when it is creative, from a singular atmosphere, particularly suggestive, carrying a single poetry. When he appears, with evidence, that more precision in drawing, closes the doors to the imagination, of the mystery, and destroy a subtle balance between dream and reality.
The tto precise drawing can, in fact, close the doors to the imagination. While the blur, characteristic of the sketch, can open these doors. The photographers also know well: The blur can be simply fuzzy, but it can also be an invitation to feel a mystery and to participate in an enigma. The viewer is invited to furnish the blur proposed to him, through his imagination.
But it is an alchemy that only great artists have exceptionally found the secret.
The great master of this technique that the earliest, pushed him, foremost, was William Turner (1775-1851).
Delacroix was also a little after Turner, one of the major precursors of the art of the sketch. For example in the "death of Sadarnapale" but also in many other paintings. But Delacroix is also an example of the limitations of this technique. All techniques meet, at one time or another, their limits.
The Art of the sketch is terribly difficult, because it is not enough to draw schematically a subject to make a beautiful work. It is not enough to draw and paint blur, or photographing blur, to create a work of art.
The blur can be only a sketch or an approximation, which ultimately market value is up to the signing of a big name.
It is true that the sketch can release a certain expressive power, have an evocative power, a poetry of unfinished. An expressive force that the painting, well finished, well designed and well painted, completed, can actually lose. But the poetic magic of Blur Art cannot be systematic.
It is also very much a question of fashion. A habit of look.
The aesthetics of our time is a little too focused on the sketch.
We finally see only sketches in the galleries of modern and contemporary paintings.
In fact the artists are not the solely responsibles, for this situation. In the 19th century Western society has entered a culture that makes of the success, physical, material, economic, and of money, its main values. Therefore the sketches, which would not come out of personal drafts of the artist, in previous centuries, have become merchandises, and sources of profits. These goods are found even in museums. Picasso understood very well, what economic mechanism.
Of course this evolution is dressed in Great Principles: There is no question of Money, but of the Artist, of the Freedom of Creation,of the Progress of the Arts, of a "new sensibility", "to live with her time "etc …
This omnipresence of the sketch reflects not only the look but the habits of ethical values.
positive or negative moral values. The Art of the blur has also become the Art to do, quickly, of the money.
We live in a world too pressed !! To go where ?

Passion Flower

In the valley beneath the mountain
Blooms the passion flower, fair
Its velvet petals moist with dewdrops
A sweet aroma fills the air
Caress the folds of the corolla
The bud engorges with a kiss
The flower bursts, secreting nectar
Riding pure ecstatic bliss.

L’esquisse n’est une oeuvre achevée que lorsqu’elle est créatrice d’une atmosphère singulière, particulièrement suggestive, porteuse d’une poésie qui lui est propre, unique. Quand il apparaît de manière évidente que plus de précision dans le dessin fermerait les portes à l’imaginaire, au mystère, et détruirait un équilibre subtile entre le rêve et la réalité.
Le dessin trop précis peut en effet fermer les portes à l’imaginaire, alors que le flou qui caractérise l’esquisse peut les ouvrir. Les photographes le savent bien aussi : Le flou peut être simplement flou, mais il peut aussi être une invitation à ressentir un mystère et à participer à une énigme. Le spectateur est invité à meubler par son imagination le flou qui lui est proposé.
Mais c’est une alchimie dont seuls les grands artistes, peuvent, exceptionnellement, pénétrer le secret.
Le grand maître de cette technique, et celui qui, le plus précocement, l’a poussé le plus loin, a été sans doute William Turner (1775-1851).
Delacroix a été aussi, un peu après Turner, un des grands précurseurs de l’art de l’esquisse. Par exemple dans la "mort de Sadarnapale" mais aussi dans bien d’autres tableaux. Mais Delacroix est aussi un exemple des limites de cette technique. Toutes les techniques rencontrent, à un moment ou à un autre, leurs limites.
L’Art de l’esquisse est redoutablement difficile, car il ne suffit pas de dessiner schématiquement un sujet pour faire une belle oeuvre. De même qu’en photographie de nos jours, il ne suffit pas de dessiner et de peindre flou pour créer une oeuvre d’art.
Le flou peut n’être qu’une esquisse ou une approximation, dont finalement la valeur marchande ne tient qu’à la signature d’un grand nom.
Il est vrai que l’esquisse peut dégager une certaine puissance expressive, avoir une puissance évocatrice, une poésie de l’inachevé. Une force expressive que le tableau, bien fini, bien dessiné et bien peint, achevé, peut effectivement perdre. Mais la magie poétique de l’art du flou ne peut pas être systématique.
C’est aussi beaucoup une question de mode. Une habitude du regard.
L’esthétique de notre époque est un peu trop focalisée sur l’esquisse.
On finit par ne plus voir que des esquisses dans les galeries de peintures modernes ou contemporaines.
En réalité les artistes ne sont pas les seuls responsables de cette situation. Au 19è siècle la société occidentale est entrée dans une culture qui fait de la réussite, matérielle, économique, et de l’Argent ses valeurs principales. Dès lors des esquisses, qui ne seraient pas sorties des brouillons personnels de l’artiste, pendant les siècles précédents, sont devenues de marchandises sources de profits. Ces marchandises, se trouvent même dans les musées. Picasso avait très bien compris ce mécanisme économique.
Bien sûr cette évolution est habillée de Grands Principes : Il n’est pas question d’Argent, mais de l’Artiste, de la Liberté de Création, du Progrès des Arts, d’une "sensibilité nouvelle", de "vivre avec son temps" etc…
Cette omniprésence de l’esquisse reflète non seulement des habitudes du regard mais des valeurs éthiques. L’Art du Flou est devenu aussi l’Art de faire, vite, de l’Argent.
Valeurs morales positives ou négatives. Nous vivons dans un monde un peu trop pressé !! Pour aller où ?

THE SKETCH OR THE ART OF BLUR

Modern Art, announced well before the beginning of the 20th century by the pré-impressionnists, impressionists and post-impressionists, was a factor quite remarkable renewal forms in European painting.
Art has always been a way to dream the real world. But the new techniques of modern art, are moving away all so very intentional, deliberate, of the exact representation of reality.
The painters tend to create an art in which the interpretation of reality trumps its reproduction.
The modern artist is hardly reproduces reality, it’s dream or invent. These trends have resulted in non-figurative art, also called abstract art.
This renewal forms in painting is total. He brought new possibilities of artistic expression.
Among the techniques developed during the 19th century, the sketch was one of the best expressions of the Art of Blur.
The Art of Blur has been practiced ingeniously by Leonardo da Vinci. The "Sfumato" is in the context of a very figurative and perfectly finished painting, like the Mona Lisa, the Virgin on the rock, or John the Baptist, a draft of art of blur..
The sketch was in the history of painting, a project, a preparatory study, which allowed the artist to ensure the coherence and balance of the finished table. In this case, usually, the blur is only an approximation, a preform, a draft, witnessed an incomplete art which needs to be completed.
But many artists, over the centuries, have understood perfectly that the sketch was sometimes, exceptionally, be a finished work.
That is to say a work, of which a large majority of spectators, experts or not, imperiously felt that NOTHING was to be added to it. This is not a mathematical definition, but this is the best.
The sketch is a finished work, only when it is creative, from a singular atmosphere, particularly suggestive, carrying a single poetry. When he appears, with evidence, that more precision in drawing, closes the doors to the imagination, of the mystery, and destroy a subtle balance between dream and reality.
The tto precise drawing can, in fact, close the doors to the imagination. While the blur, characteristic of the sketch, can open these doors. The photographers also know well: The blur can be simply fuzzy, but it can also be an invitation to feel a mystery and to participate in an enigma. The viewer is invited to furnish the blur proposed to him, through his imagination.
But it is an alchemy that only great artists have exceptionally found the secret.
The great master of this technique that the earliest, pushed him, foremost, was William Turner (1775-1851).
Delacroix was also a little after Turner, one of the major precursors of the art of the sketch. For example in the "death of Sadarnapale" but also in many other paintings. But Delacroix is also an example of the limitations of this technique. All techniques meet, at one time or another, their limits.
The Art of the sketch is terribly difficult, because it is not enough to draw schematically a subject to make a beautiful work. It is not enough to draw and paint blur, or photographing blur, to create a work of art.
The blur can be only a sketch or an approximation, which ultimately market value is up to the signing of a big name.
It is true that the sketch can release a certain expressive power, have an evocative power, a poetry of unfinished. An expressive force that the painting, well finished, well designed and well painted, completed, can actually lose. But the poetic magic of Blur Art cannot be systematic.
It is also very much a question of fashion. A habit of look.
The aesthetics of our time is a little too focused on the sketch.
We finally see only sketches in the galleries of modern and contemporary paintings.
In fact the artists are not the solely responsibles, for this situation. In the 19th century Western society has entered a culture that makes of the success, physical, material, economic, and of money, its main values. Therefore the sketches, which would not come out of personal drafts of the artist, in previous centuries, have become merchandises, and sources of profits. These goods are found even in museums. Picasso understood very well, what economic mechanism.
Of course this evolution is dressed in Great Principles: There is no question of Money, but of the Artist, of the Freedom of Creation,of the Progress of the Arts, of a "new sensibility", "to live with her time "etc …
This omnipresence of the sketch reflects not only the look but the habits of ethical values.
positive or negative moral values. The Art of the blur has also become the Art to do, quickly, of the money.
We live in a world too pressed !! To go where ?

Small business marketing environments can affect your business more than by what your do and say in your marketing.

By including these marketing environments in your marketing and business plans, you open many opportunities for your business.

You need to consider the following ten small business marketing environments as you plan your small business marketing.

Small Business Marketing Environment 1: Your Business And Employees

Don’t ever forget that each of your employees have interactions with many people outside of your business. If they are happy, feel good about your business, and believe in your product, they can be one of your greatest marketing assets.

Small Business Marketing Environment 2: The Businesses That Serve You

The businesses that you purchase from determine how efficiently you make your product and conduct your business. Some even provide cooperative advertising and promotion opportunities.

Small Business Marketing Environment 3: The Businesses That Deliver Your Products

Some distributors enhance your marketing by telling others they serve about your business. Because distribution is an important part of the marketing mix, how well they deliver your products also influences your marketing, your ability to get products to customers, and even your price.

Small Business Marketing Environment 4: Retailers

The businesses that retail your product influence your marketing and sales. They can promote your product, feature it, or just stick it on a back shelf. Thus, they can help or hurt your marketing efforts.

Small Business Marketing Environment 5: Competitors

Businesses that sell competitive products, unwillingly influence your marketing. They may not want to help you, but knowing their strengths and weaknesses can be a great asset to your marketing. When competitors are weak but you are strong, you have a distinguishing characteristic that you can market.

Small Business Marketing Environment 6: Other People

Publics influence your business in other ways besides buying your product. Their support can be a great marketing boost. Their lack of support often requires public relations marketing to diminish their influence on potential buyers and other publics.

Small Business Marketing Environment 7: Customers

Many small business owners think primarily of present and potential customers when they think of marketing – marketing to them. But who your customers are and whether they are individuals or businesses influences how you market to them.

Small Business Marketing Environment 8: Factual Characteristics

Knowing factual characteristics (demographics) about your target market reveals much about their attitudes, values, concerns and buying preferences. People differ by factual characteristics such as income, type of occupation, amount of education, their race and gender. The more you know about them, the better you can design marketing that appeals to them.

Small Business Marketing Environment 9: Economics

Economic situations influence what sells and how much of those products sell. During recessionary economies, people often eliminate unnecessary expenses. During inflationary economies people spend more and on more luxury products. Thus, different economic situations call for different marketing strategies and tactics.

Small Business Marketing Environment 10: Natural Resources

Natural resources influence your product’s price because the less a resource is available, the more you have to pay for it. To continue to make a profit, you have to pass that price on to your customers. This, in turn, influences if and how much of your product will sell.

Small Business Marketing Environment: Conclusion

Each of the ten small business marketing environments influence your marketing by what is said and done within that environment. In addition, each has a direct or indirect influence on some aspect of the marketing mix which affects your business’ success.

You can get more in-depth information on each of these small business marketing environments or get a free report on marketing your small business marketing your small business.

Your business growth strategy should include a well structured online marketing strategy for sales lead generation and lead nurturing to keep you top of mind with your clients and prospects. Research from Marketing Sherpa shows that 12.5% of leads are normally ready to buy now, 17.5% can be discarded or disqualified and a huge 70% are longer term opportunities worth nurturing.

This is where having an automated lead nurturing program as part of your Online Marketing Strategy can really make a difference to the return on your marketing efforts.

Most businesses seem challenged to keep in constant contact with their clients and prospects. The challenges with nurturing prospects and leads are many and may include:

* There is just not enough time in the day
* You may have many customer relationship products, excel spreadsheets and other data sources to manage and integrate
* Your process to send and schedule emails is manual and requires specific knowledge to be done correctly.
* You may struggle to develop good, interesting material.
* Pressure to improve results immediately pushes nurturing to one side
* Lead qualification and prioritisation is hard and for many is a long process without immediate results.

The longer term opportunities (70%) are in the interest stage of your products and services but as yet do not have the desire to buy. They are in “research” mode. This is typical in the business to business space and can range from 8 to 18 months in duration. For business to consumers this may still be anything up to 3 months or longer.

In contrast, the pressure on sales is to focus on hot prospects, now! They need to close deals for the month or the quarter and do not have the time to nurture possible deals that have a longer opportunity window. Many will probably not even start their buying process within the next 3 months.

A good lead nurturing strategy and system can plug this leaky hole in your marketing and sales pipeline. An automated system, with content well structured in paths can help qualify and score your leads automatically. At the same time, these leads can be automatically fed to your sales team as better qualified prospects.

The biggest mistake that is made is the belief that a monthly email is a lead nurturing program – it is far from it – although it is a good start, particularly if you have limited resources. The right strategy and system will use a combination of electronic, telephone and print to stay in contact with prospects.

The system can:

* Be smart enough to learn when each individual is most likely to open their email and send it at the right time
* Deliver content that they are interested in, from the sales person with whom they are dealing.
* Give you sales business intelligence so you know what your prospects are interested in.
* Seamlessly integrate your email with your website analytics so you can track your prospect’s behaviour end to end.
* Integrate with your sales pipeline system – customer relationship management.
* Possibly even tell you about who the company is, before you know who the person is looking at your online marketing.

The bottom line is that if you have an online presence and you don’t have a nurturing program in place, you are quite possibly missing out on the 70% that are opportunities for you. They are just not ready right now. You are allowing your competitors into the game, because you don’t keep in constant contact with relevant and valuable material.

To improve your sales lead generation, automate your online marketing strategy and your lead nurturing program. You can then take advantage growing your business without significant increases in marketing or business development resources.

If you are truly looking for an mlm business opportunity, let me ask you a simple question. Why? Yes, why are you looking for an mlm business opportunity? What is happening in your life that you are looking for more? Why aren’t you looking for a higher paying job? Why aren’t you looking for a second or even a third or weekend job? Based on those few questions at this point you may be thinking to yourself either why would I would a second job? Or you are thinking, yes why am I looking into the mlm business opportunity world?

Well, if you have realized that having a job can be just as dangerous as your friend who lost theirs, you are right. Do you know of anyone who has lost one ever?

Maybe you are now more open minded than before and have heard that Donald Trump, Warren Buffet and Robert Kiyosaki all highly recommend the mlm business opportunity realm to diversify yourself and create a residual income. In fact if you are trying to become more successful don’t you think that those 3 people would probably have a pretty good idea of success to point you in the right direction than someone who is not at their level from a business success standpoint? But it all depends on what you are looking for and what you aren’t getting out of your life at the moment that is having you research an mlm business opportunity.

Well let’s look at the facts about an mlm business opportunity. Many people fail, but not only in mlm, but even in the business world, so don’t compare the two as separate. It has a stigma about it within the industry,yet more millionaires have been created in an mlm business opportunity than ever before since 1990. Wow that has some weight to it.

Your uncle Joe may call it one of those pyramids but he doesn’t understand that business people all over the world leverage the time and make money off people every single day. In fact he was getting paid less than he was worth so the people above him would profit , right? Yes, when put in those real terms it is a wake up call for many.

The facts are very simple, having an mlm business opportunity can be a great way to take your lifestyle to a higher level. Yes, there will be work involved, but there are tax advantages as well. Ones that you don’t get as an employee.

Now, if you understand the benefits of having your own mlm business opportunity than you have to decide which one is the right fit for you as there are well over 5,000 companies to choose from. Chances are you read about one somewhere or you had someone approach you about one that was trying to recruit you. There are a ton of companies out there that are in the nutritional niche. There are several that are in the skin care niche and there are several that are in the technology niche. Some of their pay plans are better than others.

But one question you have to ask yourself is would you open a restaurant with the same menu right next door to your competition? Now you may have a specialized pasta dish with some organic flavoring, but to the majority of the population they will see it as similar unless you do a lot more marketing to convince them otherwise which will cost more overhead and take away from your hard earned profits.

Everyone nowadays seems to have the best this or the best that or the miracle product that will help lose wight fast or heal almost anything. None of these have been FDA approved because they are supplements not medications.

But what if you had an mlm business opportunity that was a product that was desirable to everyone. That actually was valuable and was growing at a rate that most business owners would die for, and that you had zero competition and was but wasn’t exactly a monopoly. Yet, no one had the marketing power to even compete with you. It would sound like a win win situation right?

Well let me say all skeptics are welcome, because if you are looking for an mlm business opportunity that will truly exceed your expectations, if you are willing to work it like a business and learn along the way you can’t only help but to prosper. But you must be accepted by the team, because not everyone should be allowed in unless they are qualified right? You are looking for an mlm business opportunity partner, not just a body, right?

So now as you stared reading this you have a few choices. Either you can try to find additional jobs or other ways to make money 0r you can choose an mlm business opportunity that can help you create residual income and be party of something that is more exciting than anything that people will say you were involved with that before, WOW! The compensation plan will blow your mind and we invite you to research and discover how it is taking the mlm business opportunity world by storm. While you are still researching over the next few days or as long as you want, you will probably have missed out on several key places.
