Online Trading

The invention of the Internet has brought about many changes in the way that we conduct our lives and our personal business. We can pay our bills online, shop online, bank online, and even date online!

We can even buy and sell stocks online. Traders love having the ability to look at their accounts whenever they want to, and brokers like having the ability to take orders over the Internet, as opposed to the telephone.

Most brokers and brokerage houses now offer online trading to their clients. Another great thing about trading online is that fees and commissions are often lower. While online trading is great, there are some drawbacks.

If you are new to investing, having the ability to actually speak with a broker can be quite beneficial. If you aren’t stock market savvy, online trading may be a dangerous thing for you. If this is the case, make sure that you learn as much as you can about trading stocks before you start trading online.

You should also be aware that you don’t have a computer with Internet access attached to you. You won’t always have the ability to get online to make a trade. You need to be sure that you can call and speak with a broker if this is the case, using the online broker. This is true whether you are an advanced trader or a beginner.

It is also a good idea to go with an online brokerage company that has been around for a while. You won’t find one that has been in business for fifty years of course, but you can find a company that has been in business that long and now offers online trading.

Again, online trading is a beautiful thing – but it isn’t for everyone. Think carefully before you decide to do your trading online, and make sure that you really know what you are doing!

High or Low: Keeping Track with National Average Credit Score

Credit is said to be a system of buying and selling without immediate payment or security. Credit may be in the form of credit cards or loans.

Any individual who desires to process a credit card or loan application will have to abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the lender. An important factor for any credit application to be approved is your credit score.

A credit score is the determinant factor of lending institutions whether or not you will be granted credit. Your existing credit status as well as your past credit standing makes up for a credit score.

Every nation has a standard credit score to follow to determine the country’s financial condition. The United States has a national average credit score somewhere from 580 to 650. You will most likely be granted with credit requests if you have a high credit score.

Since the credit score is highly significant for you to obtain credits as well as balance the national average credit score, there are things you must do.

Seek help from experts.

Do not be overwhelmed by low interests or other attractive credit offers by lending institutions. It is best to consult an expert before you close an agreement with a positive notion.

Financial consultants will help you properly handle your finances. He is responsible in showing you the status of your finances. He may also be your source of assistance on matters about getting credits. He will most likely advise you on the pros and cons of getting credits and the many requirements lending institutions need before they come up with a decision.

Do not let your due date slip.

When you pay your bills on time or before its due date, you are establishing good credit standing. Another advantage when you are paying ahead of time is that you are also making your balances low.

Late payments of bill will not only give lending institutions bad impressions of you but it can also be unfavorable to maintaining a high credit score. To avoid late payments, it is best to keep track of due dates. Prompt yourself that it is “pay time,” a week before your credit’s due date.

Keep your interest low.

Credit interests establish how good or bad your credit score is as well as the national average credit score. With low credit interests you are likely to maintain good credit standing.

It is recommended that you take on a survey among lending institutions on the credit interest they give. Upon doing your survey, choose which ones can give you low interest yet will still offer you good-quality of service.

Consolidate.

To undergo consolidation is usually common to individuals who experience trouble paying off unpaid debts to their lenders. Consolidation is recommended for such people to unburden them of too much paying pressure.

Evaluate and re-evaluate.

Be your own accountant. Do not let financial problems pile up, instead of waiting for credit reports to be mailed at the foot of your door, make your own. By doing so, you are updated concerning your credit reports.

Self-evaluation of your credit reports will help you gauge how much credit scores you still have. Nowadays if you wish to have free consultations regarding your credit reports, you can always go online and find one.

Keeping yourself on the right credit score track will not only help you maintain a good credit standing, it will also help your nation maintain a good average credit score. Having so will stabilize the economy.

Fraud Sucks!

What is fraud? Are there many types of fraud? What can I do to prevent fraud? What can I do is I fall victim to fraud?

Do you find yourself asking these questions? I know I did. So I decided to do some research and share what I have learned. According to our online dictionary pal, Merriam-Webster, fraud is an act of deceiving or misrepresenting. Basically, it is when trickery is used to gain a dishonest advantage, which is often financial, over another person. I learned that there are many words that experts use to explain fraud: Scam, con, swindle, extortion, sham, double-cross, hoax, cheat, ploy, ruse, hoodwink, confidence trick. Remember, that fraud is something that can be done against individuals but also businesses.

To my surprise, I found out that there are many different types of fraud that one can be subjected to. The many types of fraud there are is:

1. Identity Fraud and Identity Theft
2. Online fraud
3. Individual fraud
4. New Accounts Fraud
5. Utilities Fraud
6. Check Fraud
7. Corporate Fraud
8. Advance Fee Fraud

Any type of fraud, most importantly identity theft, can be an easy problem to ignore—until you experience it yourself. With more ways for criminals to obtain your personal information online—and more complex ways to cover their tracks—it’s more important than ever to protect yourself and your assets. I found that having a complete comprehensive protective plan against these types of actions is the best way to help prevent fraud and most importantly help you if you fall victim to it.

IDShield is the only identity theft protection company armed with a team of dedicated licensed private investigators to restore your identity should it ever become compromised.

Not all thieves need to break a window or pick a lock. In fact, all they need is for someone to click a link in an email or enter their credit card number. From there, identity fraud allows criminals to impersonate their victims to carry out a number of other crimes. Millions of people experience identity theft every year—but it only takes a few steps to protect yourself.

Get yourself and your family protected today.

Why You Should Invest

Regal Assets BannerInvesting has become increasingly important over the years, as the future of social security benefits becomes unknown.

People want to insure their futures, and they know that if they are depending on Social Security benefits, and in some cases retirement plans, that they may be in for a rude awakening when they no longer have the ability to earn a steady income. Investing is the answer to the unknowns of the future.

You may have been saving money in a low interest savings account over the years. Now, you want to see that money grow at a faster pace. Perhaps you’ve inherited money or realized some other type of windfall, and you need a way to make that money grow. Again, investing is the answer.

Investing is also a way of attaining the things that you want, such as a new home, a college education for your children, or expensive ‘toys.’ Of course, your financial goals will determine what type of investing you do.

If you want or need to make a lot of money fast, you would be more interested in higher risk investing, which will give you a larger return in a shorter amount of time. If you are saving for something in the far off future, such as retirement, you would want to make safer investments that grow over a longer period of time.

The overall purpose in investing is to create wealth and security, over a period of time. It is important to remember that you will not always be able to earn an income… you will eventually want to retire.

You also cannot count on the social security system to do what you expect it to do. As we have seen with Enron, you also cannot necessarily depend on your company’s retirement plan either. So, again, investing is the key to insuring your own financial future, but you must make smart investments!  Why not Gold?

Servuction Model

Every day we as a society frequent many businesses whether to purchase a good or a service. During our visit we encounter either good or bad customer service. In service marketing, marketers use the servuction model to help breakdown the service that one does get.

smodel

The servuction model is basically used to illustrate factors that influence service experience, including those that are visible and invisible to the consumer[1].   When a servuction model is done on any given business, it is important to know the four factors of it. The four factors are: servicescape, contact personnel/service providers, other customers and organizations and systems.

  1. Servicescape is basically the physical evidence or all nonliving features that are used to design the service environments. The bottom line is to think of anything that is plainly visible to the consumer and anything that consists of ambient conditions, inanimate objects, and other physical evidence. Recently I went to the movie theatres and I can understand how the servicescape can influence my overall experience. The proper placement of the movie advertisements (i.e. stand-ups, posters, etc.) as well as ticket booths and other nonliving objects like game machines and such can affect my service experience if I have to walk around them. To me it would seem as if they used this model because they properly displayed and placed everything to where it catches my attention but doesn’t ruin my movie experience.
  2. Contact personnel/service providers are actually two areas that can affect the service experience bundled up into one category. Contact personnel are the employees other than the primary service provider who briefly interact with the customer. Service providers are the primary providers of a core service, such as a waiter or waitress, dentist, physician, or college instructor. Every time I frequent a local McDonald’s they have this one employee whose job is to make sure that the dining area and rest rooms are clean. It is clear that he has some sort of an OCD situation going on. Well, he doesn’t seem to understand the term of personal space and will clean the table and sweep the floors while you are still eating in that particular space. I find this very uncomfortable which ruins my service experience at the fast food giant.
  3. Other customers are basically those that receive the service along side yourself perhaps through a bundle of benefits created through service experience. Unfortunately, I cannot think of a business that I have frequent that provided this type of service and it was great or bad. Have an example and wish to share please do so in the comments.
  4. Organizations and systems are the invisible part of the model that reflects the rules, regulations, and processes upon which the organization is based. I recently encounter this part of the servuction model that ruined my service experience. The fast food provider is KFC. I recently went there to purchase a pot pie meal and was given on price but charged a different price. When I question the additional charge it was told to me that it was a service charge added to all debit card transactions. I asked where is the signage that states the fact and was pointed to a sticker no bigger than a mailing label with words of five point font (that says five point font). This was a change made within the rules and regulations of the business that caused a horrible service experience.

It is clear that the servuction model makes obvious that consumers are an essential part of the service process; therefore, telling us marketers that we need to think of our consumers first.

Could 2015 be the year for vitamin and supplement companies?

An industry that has boomed over the years into a multi-billion dollar a year, looks like it is about to increase once again. According to IBISWorld, the global market for vitamin and supplement products is expected to have a compound annual growth rate of 7.4%, and is currently valued at $18 billion in revenue. This could be due to many reasons, but I personally fill that America is sick and tired of being a fat nation. We are starting to become more and more health conscious. If you have stock, or thought about buying stock, this is my thoughts of the following companies.

The following report courtesy of MarketWatch.

axxe The first company is Axxess Pharma (AXXE). They are a focused healthcare company dedicated to providing a wide range of products to improve the lives of patients and consumers worldwide. The company’s products are targeted to improve health-related conditions and furthermore, Axxess intends to market these products with affordable pricing with widespread availability.

Just recently, they have announced that they have partnered with Roc Nation Sports on their first three boxingtapout_logo events under the throne boxing banner and the first event will be scheduled at none other than Madison Square Garden on Jan 9. Axxess Pharma and Roc Nation Sports will work together to promote the TapouT Muscle product line and throne boxing events. “As a company, TapouT Muscle shares our desire to innovate and do things differently and we are excited to work with them beginning with our first event on Jan. 9,” states Michael Yormark, President and Chief of Branding at Roc Nation.

As of this morning, their shares have been increasing.

axxestock

We have seen a nice 4.94% increase over a few hours. Could this increase be linked to them securing a massive purchase order from Muscle Foods USA, a large nationwide sport and nutrition distributor, for the full line of Axxess Pharma/AllStar Health Brands TapouT products.

minercoMinerco Resources, Inc. MINE, -6.06% has begun to steadily rebound since November. Following lows of $0.0022, the stock has moved back as much as 118%. As of most recent weeks, Minerco has traded relatively sideways between $0.003 and $0.004 with the most recent momentum favoring the bulls.

minestockJust last week the Company announced that Advantage Sales and Marketing will be the official broker for VitaminFIZZ, Minerco’s lightly sparkling, vitamin-enhanced beverage. Advantage will take an aggressive lead on placing VitaminFIZZ in key chain and independent accounts, initially focused in the Southwest region of the US. In addition, the company will assist in promotion, marketing, advertising planning, and execution through its network of in-store partners and in-house experts.

vitaminAs an increasing number of the population seeks to avoid costly medical issues and focuses on prevention through diet, supplementation and exercise, it is expected that the demand in this market segment will provide market participants with continued opportunities. Among the most proactive consumers within the industry are the baby boomers, those who are in their 50s and 60s, which represent a large demographic looking toward supplements to maintain health and wellness. Furthermore, the “active lifestyle” generation has opened even more opportunity for companies like these to offer unique product mixes to take advantage of the increasing want from these demographics.

SELF IMPROVEMENT AND SUCCESS

Everything that happens to us happens in purpose. And sometimes, one thing leads to another. Instead of locking yourself up in your cage of fears and crying over past heartaches, embarrassment and failures, treat them as your teachers and they will become your tools in both self improvement and success.

I remember watching Patch Adams – its my favorite movie, actually. Its one great film that will help you improve yourself. Hunter “patch” Adams is a medical student who failed to make it through the board exams. After months of suffering in melancholy, depression and suicidal attempts – he decided to seek for medical attention and voluntarily admitted himself in a psychiatric ward.  His months of stay in the hospital led him to meeting different kinds of people. Sick people in that matter. He met a catatonic, a mentally retarded, a schizophrenic and so on. Patch found ways of treating his own ailment and finally realized he has to get back on track. He woke up one morning realizing that after all the failure and pains he has gone through, he still want to become the a doctor. He carries with himself a positive attitude that brought him self improvement and success. He didn’t only improved himself, but also the life of the people around him and the quality of life. Did he succeed? Needless to say, he became the best damn doctor his country has ever known.

So, when does self improvement become synonymous with success? Where do we start? Take these tips, friends…
*Stop thinking and feeling as if you’re a failure, because you’re not. How can others accept you if YOU can’t accept YOU?

*When you see hunks and models on TV, think more on self improvement, not self pitying. Self acceptance is not just about having nice slender legs, or great abs. Concentrate on inner beauty.

*When people feel so down and low about themselves, help them move up. Don’t go down with them. They’ll pull you down further and both of you will end up feeling inferior.

*The world is a large room for lessons, not mistakes. Don’t feel stupid and doomed forever just because you failed on a science quiz. There’s always a next time. Make rooms for self improvement.

*Take things one at a time. You don’t  expect black sheep’s to be goody-two-shoes in just a snap of a finger. Self improvement is a one day at a time process.

*Self improvement results to inner stability, personality development and dig this …. SUCCESS. It comes from self confidence, self appreciation and self esteem.

* Set meaningful and achievable goals. Self improvement doesn’t turn you to be the exact replica of Cameron Diaz or Ralph Fiennes. It hopes and aims to result to an improved and better YOU.

*Little things mean BIG to other people. Sometimes, we don’t realize that the little things that we do like a pat on the back, saying “hi” or “hello”, greeting someone “good day” or telling Mr. Smith something like “hey, I love your tie!” are simple things that mean so much to other people. When we’re being appreciative about beautiful things around us and other people, we also become beautiful to them.

*When you’re willing to accept change and go through the process of self improvement, it doesn’t mean that everyone else is. The world is a place where people of different values and attitude hang out. Sometimes, even if you think you and your best friend always like to do the same thing together at the same time, she would most likely decline an invitation for self improvement.

We should always remember that there’s no such thing as ‘over night success’. Its always a wonderful feeling to hold on to the things that you already have now, realizing that those are just one of the things you once wished for. A very nice quote says that “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”  We are all here to learn our lessons. Our parents, school teachers, friends, colleagues, office mates, neighbors… they are our teachers. When we open our doors for self improvement, we increase our chances to head to the road of success.
