Empower Network Launches Viral Blogging Marketing Platform for Bloggers and Network Marketers

Co-creators, Internet marketing geniuses, David Wood and David Sharpe, opened the “Gateway” to the Empower Network November 1st.

Tampa, Florida, November 05, 2011 – Co-creators, Internet marketing geniuses, David Wood and David Sharpe, opened the “Gateway” to the Empower Network November 1st. Empower Network is a brand new viral blogging platform allowing anyone, including network marketers, social bloggers, and affiliate marketers around the globe to start creating an online presence immediately using this “Plug and Play” viral blogging platform. Empower Network removes all the confusing technical aspects of building a new blog from scratch, for non- technical oriented bloggers and marketers, by giving immediate access to a turn-key viral blog marketing system that is already SEO optimized and web ready.

By enabling new bloggers and marketers as well as seasoned bloggers alike have immediate access to this platform after becoming a subscriber, the number one hurdle for newcomers and most bloggers is eliminated and enables anybody to start publishing content online right from day one, generating online traffic to their blog and expose leads, contacts, and customers to their content, without the delay in set up and learning how to create an optimized functional blog.

An option also available to subscribers of Empower Network viral blog marketing system is a complete series of training videos covering all aspects of publishing attractive content online. The variety of training ranges from keyword research, compelling copywriting, lead generation, and to powerful traffic monetization methods.

This is a brand new concept online and has never been done before. Many different systems that are available provide bloggers and marketers the ability to learn how to generate leads and traffic, but never have provided any significant level of training and ease in setting up a working blog due to the difficulty in learning the technical aspects behind any of the blogging platforms and using these platforms easily.

David Wood and David Sharpe also announced that the platform includes a “never been done before affiliate membership program” that only active subscribers using the Empower Network blogging platform will qualify for. Subscribers will be able to earn “100% commissions, deposited directly to their bank accounts immediately” for sharing Empower Network. This was made possible by a partnership with the largest Credit Card processor, First Data, “the world’s largest provider of merchant processing services” according to their website.

The Empower Network is seen by many as the next evolution of systems and tools for bloggers and Internet Marketers and may revolutionize how Network Marketers build their businesses. With this new tool, the global blogging community now has the capability to have equal footing and can compete for traffic online simply by providing good quality content and not to have to worry about the intrinsic technology involved with SE optimization and back-linking techniques that have cause struggles for most bloggers in the past, that could not afford to hire professional programmers to assist them.

FRA reports on ‘forests for food’ claims

Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has reported on claims from the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) that the world’s forests can play a vital role in feeding those living in developing countries.

Bainbridge Island, WA, November 04, 2011 – Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has reported on claims from the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) that the world’s forests can play a vital role in feeding those living in developing countries.

Although forests undoubtedly provide industry with the essential raw materials it needs to develop and expand, forests are also important for feeding the world’s hungry, claims the CPF. It adds that policymakers and international development agencies need to bear this role in mind when planning how forests should be managed.

The Food and Agricultural Organization of the UN, which is an active member of the CPF agrees with the claims. Its Assistant Director General, Eduardo Rojas-Briales, stated, “Forests and trees on farms are a direct source of food and cash income for more than a billion of the world’s poorest people.

“They provide both staple foods and supplemental foods. To enhance these benefits, governments and development partners should increase investments in support of sustainable forest management and rehabilitation of degraded forest lands,” he added.

FRA, which is a research and analysis consultancy supporting sustainable forestry and forestry investment, lent its support for the call for the importance of forests in the feeding of the world’s poor, to be considered when forestry management policy is established. Its analysis partner, Peter Collins, stated, “We agree that important consideration should be given to the important role and standing forests and sustainable forestry management plays in the developing world.

“We believe in supporting projects that boost the volume of forest and in emerging economies, such as the plantation project run by Greenwood Management and other similar businesses in Brazil. These projects add to the country’s forested land and also help to prevent the deforestation of native forests,” added Mr Collins.

Agroforestry has been touted as a viable solution that allows forests to be managed for timber, while helping to provide crops and livestock for food. The World Agroforestry Center’s Director General, Tony Simons, explained, “Agroforestry provides a climate smart agriculture alternative that can increase food production and improve farmers’ incomes and living standards.”

Minneapolis Sales Training Firm Launches New Mobile Sales Manager

Sales Results Fast of Minneapolis announced today the launch of their newest product called Mobile Sales Manager.

Minneapolis, MN, October 28, 2011 – Sales Results Fast of Minneapolis announced today the launch of their newest product called Mobile Sales Manager. Sales Results Fast is a sales training and consulting firm focused on maximizing the performance of your sales staff and indicates this latest product will be a powerful tool for the small business owner.

According to Rich Garvey, President of the firm, a small business owner can use this new product in place of having to take on a full time sales manager employee. They can provide everything a sales manager can to a small sales staff including training and motivation but without the added expense and risk to the business owner. “We think we have uncovered a niche in the market,” Garvey said.

Sales Results Fast knows that many small business owners have sales people but cannot afford to take on the expense and risk of a full time sales manager so they take on the management of the sales team themselves. According to Garvey, “Most small business owners are great at what they do and it is usually not managing salespeople.” He continues, “We don’t necessarily believe they should step away from sales completely because it’s too important but having an experienced professional there to train and manage could really maximize their ROI on that group of people.”

Sales Results Fast hopes to help every small business owner with sales people get the most from their team. For more on Sales Results Fast check out their website at www.salesresultsfast.com.

Brisbane Plumber Drainage Cost-Saving Tips!

Whatever the drainage problem you encounter, as householders it is always advisable to leave the job to the expert and not try to “do-it-yourself”, says Brisbane Plumber Drainage expert Paul.

Brisbane, Queensland, October 24, 2011 – According to Paul, professional plumbers are well-equipped with the right tools and knowledge in dealing with blocked drainage or any other conceivable problems you encounter with you’re likely to encounter with your drainage system.

“From sky-high buildings in well-developed urban places to regular private homes, a drainage system is always is always installed to systematically managed waste water, and if it is not managed properly are abused, then expensive problems will surface,” said Paul.

In light of householders’ systematic abuse of their drainage system, the Brisbane Plumbers has offered the following tips to help guide them in hiring a plumber to eliminate their drainage problems:

1. Brisbane Plumber Drainage Tip # 1: Access your pipeline problem…

Assessing your exact drainage problem will not only save you a lot of money, but it can also make the whole fixing process faster. How? Although there’s really no clear differentiation between an expert plumber and a regular plumber, minor pipeline problems are best left to a regular plumber because of their affordability in their service fee. For complicated and serious drainage work, however, an expert plumber is more reliable to hire than amateurs. Their hiring service fee may be higher, but their works are less likely to fail, which can spare you from another distraught situation and the possibility of calling them back

2. Brisbane Plumber Drainage Tip #2: Always take your time; never rush…

One of the most common problems house owners tend to do when their house drainage is causing them severe headache is they tend to rush. As a result, the plumber serviceman they usually hire are either not fully-qualified or the services they provide are not that reliable. An expensive service fee does not also guarantee quality work. Also, before you decide to hire their service, always ask for a quote first and get a written estimate how much the repair will exactly cost you. This way, you’ll already have an idea just how much exactly their repair service is going to cost you.

3. Brisbane Plumber Drainage Tip #3: Do they provide free plumbing after service…

Believe it or not, even at the hands of a professional plumber, their work is still not that guaranteed to be full proof. Although it only happens rarely, it is very important to inquire if they provide a free plumbing after service should their repairing service fail. While some drainage repair company’s offer this for free, most still charge a fee. So always remember to ask this to your Brisbane Plumber Drainage provider when still on the phone.

Brisbane Plumber is all about giving service to their clients. “When you contract us to do your work, whether it is to fix a leaking tap, installing a new water heater, repairing blocked drains – no matter the problem, we at Brisbane Plumber gives you 100 customer satisfaction, or your money back, no question asked,” said Paul.

Attorney Karen Lundquist Offers Online Legal English Courses on Employment Law

International Students Learn Effective Negotiation & Arbitration Skills Virtually

Minneapolis, MN, October 24, 2011 – Minneapolis business attorney and tenured legal Engish professor, Karen Lundquist, announces the availability of Global E-Learning courses on employment law and negotiation techniques, as well as various other legal English topics. Areas of the law addressed include wrongful employment terminations, non-competition agreement violations, intellectual property, misappropriation of trade secrets and more. The next course is scheduled to begin in January 2012. Full details and sign-up information are available at KarenLundquist.com.

Carefully designed virtual classrooms and syllabi accommodate students and their needs to develop legal English vocabulary as well as powerful negotiation skills in areas of the law that pertain to their given careers. International students benefit from courses which are designed on real-life fact patterns. Mimicking scenarios encountered in worldwide courtrooms and conference rooms, students represent fictitious clientele and engage in:

* Mock settlement negotiations;

* Client interviews;

* Interpretation of case files;

* Dispute arbitration;

* More…

By acting as attorneys, students encounter opportunities to use the technical legal English vocabulary terms they have been studying and need for their profession. At the same time, they hone their lawyering skills that they use when practicing law in their native tongues. Karen states, “The important fact about these courses is not necessarily the topic, such as employment law or intellectual property, but that they revolve around real-life fact patterns with correspondence, affidavits and other documents that an attorney would deal with if working in a real law firm.”

To further simulate the authenticity of real life courtroom situations and negotiations, students are also able to initiate “break-out sessions”, time periods where they can have confidential discussions in private before returning to the main classroom where the negotiation or arbitration is taking place. Karen concludes, “This course is important and useful because it gives participants chances to learn in the best way possible: by doing.”

About Karen Lundquist: Karen Lundquist is a multilingual business attorney who owns the Attenza Law Firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is also a veteran professor of English, serving for two decades as a cultured, caring instructor. She specializes in training professionals from various legal realms in developing specific legal-based vocabulary sets that are integral for their abilities to perform an array of spoken career duties.
