Secrets About Major Retailers Closing Multitudes Of Stores!

Are Major Retailers like Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, and others really in trouble? If you pay any attention to the news, the are. Why? Because they are closing down stores, and in the case of Neiman Marcus, supposedly putting themselves up for sale. However no concrete claim is being made just yet.

What is hitting the news is that this is all about a “soft economy.” Is it really? Are we just being introduced to another “flame” geared to scare the daylights out of all of us? Well, here’s a no nonsense look at what has been coming for some time, or at least as I see it.

Where did you do half or more of your shopping last year? How about for Christmas. Did you go to the Malls? Or did you go online to Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Macy’s, or any number of other major retailers? Of course you did! Why is that?

Tell Me It Ain’t So!

From a purely utilitarian point of view, all the hassle of traffic, bodies, items sold out, would be just a few of the logical reasons. Add to that, who can be unhappy having UPS, FEDEX or any delivery service showing up at your door with any of the items you’re looking for? Really!

Sitting at your computer, viewing a full color display of any item you want, with the ability to even comparative shop prices. In addition the chance to read and sift through customer reviews about the items you are interested in. Discovery that returns are heavy, not as advertised, smaller than the ad photo, among many other comments save you the “return” hassle after the fact.

Then there are the potential returns. Have you had the experience of having those same delivery services pick up your return at your door, or simply taking the box of goods to the nearest drop off point with no questions asked? Once more, avoiding lines in the store, the traffic, and the relief of doing it in comfort. So do you think this has any impact on sales in the Malls? That’s sort of asking if you like Pizza…which by the way gets delivered to your door!

Wake up people! Is this really due to a soft economy, or simply a big change in the way we shop? Haven’t we seen this coming? Is it really a big surprise? Ice Cream from Cold Stone might continue to be sold on location, or taken out for home consumption. Don’t think they can’t figure out how to make that compulsive purchase just as appetizing online for home delivery as Pizza! The greater question might be what can’t be done online? Auto repair?

Well, in reality with mobile mechanics willing to come to your door or office location to do the work, even that is in question. Ahh…I have it. Dry cleaning. Wait…they pick up and deliver! What is it that can’t be delivered? Maybe a funeral service, but no bets there.

When you can cut out the overhead of a brick and mortar location, all the expense, where merchandise can be produced from a warehouse, food from a commissary, and all the fancy fixings required in a store simply aren’t necessary, imagine the cost savings.

Huge brands have been created online, and continue to grow. If you have any doubts, check out the programs on WOBI, short for World Of Business Ideas. They also have a Face Book page, https://www.facebook.com/wobi.en/, and a webpage, http://www.wobi.com. They offer a series of programs about startups, entrepreneurs, and so much more. The bottom line is you will see the change that is happening.

So I’m thinking that this is just another way for the “media moguls” to grab some headlines. There’s a chance the younger set won’t be too surprised. As to the “Boomers” and others it might initially shock their system. It’s just another change that even they may have been trying to ignore, subconsciously aware it was coming.

So there could be some prime real estate up for grabs, but who wants it? Unless of course it can be converted into warehouse space, or a giant commissary. WOBI clearly states that the percentages of people going into business for themselves from home, is climbing at not too surprising rates. Are you one? Will you be next? Are you ready?

For 20 years I have looked for that “tool” to create extra income on the internet. Finally in 2004 I created a website, and one of the programs that had just come out was from Google called AdSense. In short, for those who may not know, this program was brand new, and it offered website owners the opportunity to allow Google to post what are known as pay-per-click (PPC) ads anywhere on the webpages the owner selected.

This was a brand new concept. The double intent for Google, was to create an amazing outlet for their Advertisers using the AdWords program. This program was aimed at advertisers selecting specific key words to capture potential buyers for products on the internet. The advertiser only paid when one of the selected keywords was “clicked”.

Google then placed these keyword ads on those websites where AdSense customers were part of the program. In the beginning it was an awesome program and I was fortunate to actually see income almost immediately. After a few months the decision was made to sell the site while it was profitable. Huge mistake, as I was never able to duplicate that success. By the time I created a new website, everything had changed.

When I had been making as much as $250 in a month, it now was taking a year to make $100. Of course, the internet had changed but my thinking and learning had not. No matter how many websites I created, no matter how many pages I wrote, no matter how much I focused on keywords, the income was at best a dribble. Does any of this sound familiar? have you “been there…done that?

I won’t try to list the number of programs I invested in attempting to learn what the secret was I seemed to be missing. A variety of these programs included some information, most of it good just never enough.

The most recent outlined a series of things that I followed to the letter. One of the “extras” included the opportunity to have pages written that were SEO optimized, supposedly by experts. The people responsible did not indicate these pages were going to be written by non-native English speakers.

Because it was taking an inordinate amount of time for the “experts” to create my paid site and upload the pages, I decided to create a companion site dealing with a similar topic so I could compare the efforts I was paying for, to my own. In short, of the 20 pages I paid for, I had to completely re-write them. Comparing my efforts to the paid site was nearly as bad. To date, the site I created has drawn more traffic than the one I paid for. In short, lesson learned.

I kept researching and reviewing various opportunities centered on affiliate marketing. Over the years I had the opportunity to meet some of those who have actually made the “big money” in this niche. I was determined to at least generate some additional income. Being a millionaire was not so much my idea as simply not being dependent on a fixed income that could someday disappear. I’m speaking of a pension as it relates to Social Security.

So along come John Crestani and Internet Jetset!. It looked like so many others I nearly didn’t bother. Something made me do what I had done before. Look for the “scams” for this particular program to see what I could find.

Over the last several years the words “review” and “scam” have almost become synonymous. Those marketers have captured those keywords and written reviews claiming to review a scam, when in reality they were either promoting the same program, or one of their own.

It didn’t take long before I had found a good deal of positive info, but I knew from previous experience this was no guarantee. John offered the typical 60 day money back guarantee, including the offer that if a program was set up and the purchaser was still not satisfied, their money would be refunded and they could still keep the program.

Having had the experience of getting refunds in the past with few negative results, I knew by this time that as long as VISA was involved I would get my money back one way or another. So I did one more thing which was check out John on youtube. A number of videos promoting his program elements were there, which I later discovered where the same ones being paid for. However, lacking a great deal of the information.

So I paid my $47 for Internet Jetset! to see for myself. I’m not even going to attempt listing all the information I gleaned from this program in the course of a few days. One of the claims John makes is that some will be able to create their first commission in as little as two hours. Some have, but I’m not sure what they did. As for me, I was going through everything with a fine tooth comb. Checking out the various links and videos that would further reinforce that I had made the right choice. What was the most exciting for me was the depth of information, that really drilled down to reveal things totally unknown to me. The real nuts and bolts necessary to make it happen.

In the next week or so don’t be surprised if I’m writing another page describing exactly how this has really resulted in income for me. Like no other program has in the last 13 years!

In the meantime, don’t take my word for anything. Discover this for yourself. It will be the best $47 you’ve ever spent if you’re interested in creating that extra stream of passive income affiliate marketing can provide. Internet Jetset!. Get yours! Click Here!
