When I created this group, I thought it was a great idea to share ideas, things we were doing, the "how-to's"and especially the "how-not to's" - but then Life Happened and I have been offline for a long time and hospitalized a lot last year (if you want the dirty details, you can see MY BLOG - no sense in repeating myself)!
Mea culpa, for my disappearing act, but I'm back and hoping we can make this group a fun and productive one on the AARP Groups!
Now more than ever, I am convinced that online is the place for me to be and grow - I made a lot of mistakes in the past, lost money and do not want to repeat it this time.
I am very pleased with the company I've chosen (GeneWize) and I am concentrating the rest of my efforts into affiliate marketing - selling other people's products for a commission.
It seems like a lot of what is going on "out there" (i.e., the Internet) is selling "miracle" ways to make money and books and tapes on how to do it. I think these are a large waste of money.......what do you think?
Google Ad Words are good, but too expensive for most folks until they've really made it and can afford a fortune in advertising, so I am looking at the cheaper ways - even some old fashioned ones (like drop cards and stuff). What are you doing and how is it working for you?
I would really like to have a highly interrative group - not with people hiding what they are marketing, but not just using the forum to "push" it - but learning what they are doing, how they are doing it and how we make this work for us Baby Boomers.
We've led the way in the economy (not saying much these days!) since we were born, so let's go out that way by being on top of the latest technology and trends.
It's good to be back!
I'm so happy to hear you're doing better and able to join in with us again! I hope your health stays good for a long, long time!!
I think any of the "Get Rich Quick!" schemes are just that, schemes... or you could say scams!
I'm on Etsy and Artfire, belong to a group called "Baby Boomers" which are other artistic people selling online and also a member of the Unique Women in Business Group...this group is amazing and chucked full of information and support to it's group members! If you want to join the uwib group let me know! I also twitter, facebook, and handmade so have put myself in touch with other areas and venues where my craft is seen and sold.
I do wholesale orders and just recently completed a 100+ order for a local church of the Nazarine. They have a women's retreat each year and this year the theme was "Pattern Your Heart". So they selected my little quilt square patterned magnets and had me do them up as pins that could be worn! I'm currently working on a wholesale order for a crafter who needs pins and magents that deal with her craft, which is making yarns from lambs wool and persian rabbits. So I'm working on pins and magnets of lambs and bunnies that she will then resell at her craft show this spring, summer and fall.
Well nice chatting with you and glad to hear your doing well!
