Guests at Paramount Places Holidays Spain are within an hour or two of everything that is historic Spain. Located in Vilanova I la Geltru, which is just south of Barcelona in the Costa Dorada. The rich culture has given way to a number of unique Spanish guided tours with a variety of themes to enjoy based on your own preference. Known as the Golden Coast, this is the region of Spain where miles and miles of flat golden sand beaches are the most popular attraction. The land is less rugged than other parts of the Spain and the coastline stretches for miles and miles. With four golf courses and a number of others set for future development, this country is beginning to be highly favored by golfers as well as beach goers. Spain is the second most visited country in the world and likely this is due to the weather in the Costa Dorada region which is near perfect year round. Locals living in the Catalonia region have for hundreds of years fought hard to retain their unique culture and identity despite political influences to the contrary. Yet, some of it is eroding despite efforts to hold on to the past. And for good reasons, historically speaking, womens issues have been all but ignored and traditional female roles of mother and homemaker have endured until very recently. The Spanish favor familial tradition and values over educational pursuits in respect to the female gender and that seems to be slowly giving way in the presence of a new and modern political international climate. As more and more foreigners have begun investing in Spanish real estate property, there has evolved a more progressive attitude to women working outside of the home. Previously, women stayed home to raise and rear children and provide for the family despite their own wishes or desire to seek employment and careers similar to that of their male counter parts. In this new international climate which is overtaking traditional values, culture and belief systems in Spain, however, religion continues to be a major part of day to day Spanish life. Primarily Catholics, this along with new political influences is beginning to reshape the female role in this country. In fact, based on their religious beliefs, familial notions are beginning to elude the new generation of Spanish women with many opting not to marry at all. This sufficiently jeopardizes the concept of family values and has caused quite a stirring among both the male and female populations. Perhaps Spain is becoming like every other international metropolitan area and its people right along with it. Obviously, then the Catalan people knew what the future held which is likely why they have fought so hard to preserve their own unique culture and identity despite those political and foreign influences.
You are most likely coming here as a follow up to my Part 5 of 5 articles on creating an online business. I hope you found part (1) one through part (5) informative and helpful. Today we are going to cover some advanced tips that can help you build a more efficient and profitable web site.I have gone step-by-step through the process that I used to build my "online business" . Obviously, I cannot cover every small detail, but you can email me at any time should you have any questions. I will be happy to help you if I can. Especially if you follow the same steps as I have taken. I am very familiar with this particular process.Now that your site is published and up and running, what do you do next?This is very important! You must monitor it real time to ensure your site is converting as high as possible. You will have some products and services that will convert better than others. After a decent sampling time, perhaps a couple of hundred click throughs, I would consider putting the highest converters in the hot spots on your site. You may not understand what a click through is. Lets back up a bit. To understand your site, you will need to know when someone comes to your site, how long they stay, what pages they visit and where they exit. You can find many free counters that will give you that type of data. In addition each program normally offers some tracking information as to how many clicks and sales you have gotten. You are going to need a couple hundred clicks on each link to get a fair comparison. Many people are getting about a (1) one percent conversions rate on most programs. I have some that have converted as high as (25) twenty five percent. I'll bet you can pick which ones are in my hot spots.After receiving a couple hundred clicks on your links, you can then adjust your site as required. Here are a couple of questions to ask yourself on a regular basis and helpful hints on how to correct: * How many clicks are you getting from your advertising? If people are clicking on your ads in droves, but are not staying long, not visiting your other pages nor clicking on any affiliate links then you probably do not have a good match up between your keywords and landing pages. * How many people are staying around longer then 5 seconds on after coming to your site? If less then 2% are staying less then 5 seconds your either have poor traffic, probably free ads, or a poor keyword to landing page match up. I would suggest only using (PPC) Paid Per Click advertising until you get your website fine tuned a bit. Free ads often bring people clicking just because they are curious and not because they are looking for anything. * How many of your keywords are bring you good traffic. Many times what you are looking for are long tail phrases, which are more often two to three word phrases not just one. Typically the one-word keywords get a lot of clicks, but no results. Your goal is to be as specific as possible i.e., getting yourself the best possible customers as possible.Okay, enough for today, I can see that we are going to have to break this up into (3) three parts to get it all covered.See you in Advanced part two.Please feel free to read both this article or one of my many others by visiting my link in the resource box below. I always enjoy getting emails pertaining to my articles or my site. Your feedback is important to me.
We all want more in life. More lifestyle, more health, more satisfaction. More Money! But for some of us the road to wealth is something that seems to have a whole heap of sharp corners in it. The road definitely isn't straight and at times can be disheartening. This article is based on my personal experiences with money and how I, and those who taught me, go about creating wealth. First of all money is simple. So many people make the mistake of believing that money is complex and that you need a degree in economics to succeed. Money is so simple that I have been able to teach my 6 year old nephews the principles to money which will set you up for life. When we look at money we need to see it as tool to lifestyle. Do not think that you need to spend hours analyzing stocks or market information to earn money. With some simple math's and a creative mind you can quite simply setup a passive income which will serve you well. Before I get started on one of the best strategies I know, I have one more thing to say about money concepts. Banks teach us from an early age that the only way to be wealthy is to study hard, get a degree, get a good job, and work long hard hours 6 days a week. Then they say you should save until you can afford that dream home or whatever it is you want to buy. Let me tell you that the banks are pulling the wool over your eyes. Banks know how to invest. They know where and what to invest in. Whilst banks are returning us an interest of say 10% per annum (which seems quite good to most) they are out there investing your money and making return well in excess of 100% per annum. So....Long story short. Don't let yourself be in the mindset that you must work hard and save to create wealth. Spending someone else's money (the banks) is a great way to get started. You just need to find one of the investments that the banks use. Anyway, but now to the good stuff. I want to tell you about a great method of creating wealth. Ultimate wealth if you may so call it. The Internet is a sea of wealth. There are endless opportunities for wealth creation on the Internet. From typing ads, taking surveys, to even typing articles such as this one. Money is out there to be earned. You just need someone to point you in the right direction. One of the first methods of Internet income I came across was ad typing. I used ad typing to begin to generate this passive income. The good thing about it was it wasn't continuous work, which was required. It was a once off thing. After setting up an account to be paid to I started typing ads into well known classified websites. I put those ads on 'auto renew' so the ads are there forever. Every time someone read my ad and clicked on the link in my ad, I was paid by the company that I was advertising for. How good is this. The more ads I typed the more passive income I would see each morning. I couldn't help but get excited seeing this money growing every night. You too can do this. A simple 1-hour of ad typing will generate approximately $50 per day. That's 1 hour that you never need to do again.....for 1 hours work you can have $50 per day extra to your income. Imagine if you put in 100 Hours! Surveys are a popular method of creating income as well. Again another simple way of making quick cash. When big time companies want to know 'the peoples' opinion about their product they pay people to take surveys. This allows them to better their product and keep customers happy. It also pays you a nice little lump sum. This won't provide you with a regular income, but it will pay you quick amounts of cash. And then of course there is article writing. Articles just like this one your reading now can be used to generate income. You don't need to be an expert on a subject. You just need to have an opinion and a desire to spread the word to those around you. The more readers you have on an article the more income you make. It is that simple. These three quick strategies that I have mentioned are all fantastic ways of generating a passive income. They can all be done from the comfort of your own home. They are not time consuming and they all provide you with a great source of passive income. You decide how long you work for, how much income you want. It's all at your fingertips. Now your probably asking how do I get started. At the bottom of this page I have provided you with a few web addresses to go to that will kick-start your Internet income and will give you all the tools to generating some cash. I hope you have enjoyed reading this article. All the best. And God Bless.
If you've been on the Internet anytime in the last six months, you've seen an advertisement for the Rich Jerk's ebook. But now he's taken his course to a whole different level! He's promoting his bestseller in paperback along with a CD-ROM that's full of all sorts of goodies, a Rich Jerk optimized web site, and Rich Jerk Web Hosting!The Rich Jerk really gives you an online business that is completely ready to make you money in no time. However, before you buy the Rich Jerk course at http://www.TheRichJerkTV.com you need to know about the biggest scam on the Internet.You see, the biggest problem with the Rich Jerk isn't the information in the course. In fact, it's really good stuff that's crucial to your online success. The biggest problem is that the Rich Jerk can only give you the information... he can't actually come to your house and twist your arm. You have to decide to put his teachings to work for you.So before you go out and buy the Rich Jerk's course, let's go over how you're going to use his course to maximize your action plan.First of all, don't quit your day job just yet. So many people decide that they want to make money online and then on a whim, they quit their day job. This only leads to unnecessary stress in your life that will hinder your concentration.Instead, keep your day job for a bit longer. Just take an hour or so in the evenings (or whenever you're not working) and implement one of the strategies that he teaches. They're all pretty simple once he spells it out in front of you. Soon, you'll find yourself making as much online using Rich Jerk's techniques as you are with your job. Then the decision will be obvious.The second thing you should keep in mind is that you don't want to overload your brain with new information. As an Internet Marketer for over 3 years now, I know how commissions are passed around on the Internet and I know how to think in terms of positioning myself in front of the commissions. I know how information is shared and how it travels from one source to the next.I also know how to find new markets, see what they want to buy, run an advertising campaign properly, and profit from it. But for a new person, this may be a difficult concept to grasp in the beginning.So when you first get the Rich Jerk course in your hands, grab a notebook to jot down ideas that pop in your head - remember, anything goes! Don't hold back here! You want to write down all of your ideas on paper.I suggest you go through the entire course with out implementing any of the techniques that he discusses. You're basically reading through it once just to see what sticks. That way you'll know where your interests are and have a better idea of how you can get started using them.Then, a day or two after you've read the Rich Jerk and expanded on your own ideas in the notebook, go back through the Rich Jerk course again and review what you've learned. Again, you want to write down your ideas in your notebook.By the third day, you should be ready to start putting your ideas in to action. Go ahead and get on the internet and look at some of the websites that he mentions. See if you can figure out how that website owner is making money from his visitors and how it relates to what RichJerk teaches in his course. Many websites make money even if the visitor never buys anything! Others create their own products that sell like crazy... and some sell other people's products!The RichJerk shows you how to do all of this and more to put lots of money in your pocket. He really knows his stuff and that's why he's been able to take his course to TV viewers in the form of an infomercial. His course has become a success both offline and online and he really is changing the way people think about making money online.I strongly suggest you take a look at what the Rich Jerk offers and if you don't like it after you buy it, just ask for a refund.It's really as simple as that. Personally, I'm the type of person that would regret not spending a few measly bucks on a course that has changed the lives of so many people, simply because I wasn't sure if it would really help me or not.
Once you know how to effectively propagate landscape plants, you will soon have more rooted cuttings than you can use. At that time you can decide whether or not you should quit growing cuttings, since you have all you need, or maybe youd like to sell some of your cuttings to a wholesale grower. Let's discuss how easy it is to start a business selling lining out stock. Thats what nurserymen call the little plants that they buy to plant out in the field or in containers. Lining out stock, or liners for short. Nurserymen buy plants? you might be asking. Yes they do. Nurserymen probably buy more plants than any other group of people in the country. Why would they buy them if they know how to grow them? Because sometimes they cant grow them fast enough to keep up with the demand. Or maybe they would like to grow a certain variety of plant, but cant grow it themselves because they dont have any place to get several thousand cuttings. So what they do is buy in "rooted cuttings" , plant them in the field or in containers, and then they either grow them on to sell, or they grow them on and just keep them around a year or two longer so they can take cuttings from them. Then once they have a supply of their own plants they can sell the ones they bought in that are now landscape size. Does this make sense? Lets say that Mary the nursery owner buys 1,000 Variegated Weigela rooted cuttings at 50 cents each. She plants them in the field in the early spring and they take off growing like crazy. That summer she goes out and takes 3 cuttings from each plant (they need pruning anyway, right?). She sticks those 3,000 cuttings under intermittent mist and in about 5 weeks she has 3,000 rooted cuttings that she can plant out that fall, and she does just that. The following summer she can get about 6,000 cuttings from the original 1000 plants that she bought, plus another 9,000 cuttings from the 3,000 she planted out last fall. Thats a total of 12,000 cuttings. She continues to plant her rooted cuttings out in the field and keeps taking cuttings from them until she has all she wants to grow. From then on she can take as many cuttings as she needs from the plants that she has in the field. By now the original 1,000 plants that she bought at 50 cents each are large enough to dig and sell, and they are worth $10.00 to $15.00 each wholesale. Thats $8,000 from a $500 investment, plus she can produce as many variegated weigela as she wants without buying any more cuttings. Does it really happen this way? Yes it does. I was recently talking to a friend who grows and sells all kinds of plants and he told me that he has been buying Dwarf Alberta Spruce cuttings and growing them on and selling them. He doesnt even root any himself, he just buys 5,000 every year, pots them up and sells them wholesale. How many other nurseryman across the country do you suppose do that? To get started you can either buy a stock plant or two, or buy several hundred cuttings of the variety that you would like to sell. Instead of planting them out in the field, I would plant them in beds. Make each bed 4 wide so you can reach the center to weed and take cuttings, and place the plants in the bed 10 apart. As long as you keep taking cuttings the plants will remain fairly small, and compact. Then after two or three years dig them up, put them in pots and sell them. By then you will have thousands more coming on that you can take cuttings from. Start out slow until you know what there is a market for.
