Hemp In The News

   Hemp has been in the news a lot here lately I’ve noticed. This post is going to be first of many I write explaining what I’ve seen as good talk about a plant that this country was founded on. Firstly here is a good explanation of HEMP : 

  1. Hemp (from Old English hænep) is a commonly used term for high-growing varieties of the Cannabis plant and its products, which include fiber, oil, and seed. Hemp is refined into products such as hempseed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper, and fuel.
    This is from Wikipedia.org here is the link HEMP 
     
     
    What I’m seeing on the news is a lot of positive talk. I feel it’s about time this country starts realizing how important this Hemp is to us. There are so much we can make out the plant for good things.
     

    The benefits of having a plant that can grow in almost any soil, with very minimal maintenance, and that can be used for virtually everything, might not be on the forefront of most folk’s minds.

    We’re slowly approaching a threshold. Industrial hemp is finally more than just a red blip on a map, and with more states finally starting to grow their own for research purposes, we just might start to see a revolution in the hemp industry. There is finally a movement going as we speak about Hemp. I’m definitely going to be in on it. 

    I’ve been a hemp activist for a least 20 years. I want to open my own retail shop someday with hemp clothes and whatever else I can put in the store to help educate the public on hemp awareness. 
     
    So all in all this plant is very important and vital to all of us. The more people knowing the goodness of hemp the happier I’ll be. 

     

    I’ve added a link to my online store with some hemp products up top in the title of this page if you are curious.
     
    So until the next post happy reading and thanks for reading this far of my first post here in the MarketHive.

The Internet Is Fragmenting!

The Internet Is Fragmenting!

It’s not falling apart, it’s getting bigger by the day, but the fragmentation is all about how people access it.

Let’s turn the clock back to 1997.. A website was just becoming popular. Most businesses didn’t even have one back in those days. But those that saw and recognized the coming revolution not only outsmarted, they clobbered their competition by being the first in their space to aggressively embrace the internet. By having a website, by selling their product or services via their internet, and by collecting the names and email addresses of their prospective customers, it was heyday heaven for those early pioneers.

Back in those days the only way to ‘see’ a website was to type in or click on a url Chauncey’s Free QR Codes.

But ohhh, times are changing again!

Today you can access the internet from a pc, from a laptop, from a smart phone, from a tablet, and so on, you get the idea?.. Fragmentation!

And just like the technological climate of 15 years or so ago, things are changing again – only this time even faster.

So what are QR codes and where do they fit in? 
 

With more people accessing the internet from mobile devices it is important that they can reach your information quickly and easily.  One way to do this is through the use of a QR (Quick Response) code. The code itself is a 2-D barcode consisting of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square pattern on a white background. 
 
It can be scanned with a QR code reader available on any smart phone, and smart phone users know what to do with them!  

QR codes have been around for years but are just starting to gain popularity and usage with the growing market of smart phones. The codes themselves can be put just about anywhere – from a business card to an email signature to a storefront window to a t-shirt. 

Using QR codes

Scanning a QR code can take the user to a website, a form, or product information; or even to a Virtual Business Card (VBC) where the QR code will launch the users address book and contact information will be “populated” and ready to save.  A big improvement over typing this information on a tiny smart phone keyboard or screen! Save your QR code for your VBC to your smart phone then pull up the image for others to scan/snap to input your information on their cell phone.

So why do people with smart phones like QR codes?  

Because they make life easier!  Typing a website address, a contact’s complete profile including name & email & phone number & address, or filling out a form on a tiny little keyboard gets tedious – and scanning a QR code is easy and gives instantaneous results. 

By incorporating the use of a QR code for your website, or using a Virtual Business Card with a scan able QR code, you engage your audience, customers, prospects, and contacts; show that you value their time, and can offer more detailed information quickly and easily.

You Could Win A New iPad in Our Monthly Drawing

Chauncey’s Free QR Codes, is now sponsoring a monthly drawing for a free iPad with no purchase necessary, and it’s so simple to enter… Everyone who requests a free QR code for any one of the three QR code products featured on the home page is awarded a point, and each point is worth a free entry into next month’s drawing. 

The drawings are held on the first business day of each month and one new winner will be selected each month!  

Entering the drawing is as simple as visiting Chauncey’s Free QR Codes.  Get a free QR code for any one of the three products – all three if you like – and tell the world about them using the free tools provided at the site, and receive a new entry for each QR code you make.  

The three QR code products are:  
  • A QR code for any website or any page at any site
  • A Virtual Business Card with QR code – which may also be used just for personal use. Your contacts will be able to scan your Virtual Business Card QR code and automatically load your contact information right to their phone with no typing!
  • A QR code for any phone number, which we call our “speed dial” QR code product.

In fact, each time a free QR code is requested for any of the three products, you are given a point for next month’s drawing…  But if that’s not cool enough, check this out… 

On the 2nd page that pops up after you select your QR code, the system automatically generates your QR code right before your eyes, AND more importantly, on that same page Chauncey’s Free QR Codes provides you with all of the marketing tools you could possibly use to announce to all of your contacts, your new QR code. 

You can access your favorite social media accounts simply by clicking on the appropriate icon, you can even allow the system to send a brief email on your behalf to your email contacts. And guess what?  

Each time any of your social media or email contacts come in and request any one of, or all of, the QR code products, you earn an additional 5 points to be entered into next month’s drawing.  Conceivably you could have hundreds or thousands of points which would dramatically increase your odds of winning each month. 

So, not only do you get the finest QR code products guaranteed to work on any smart phone platform, but for each one of your own QR codes and each one of the QR codes obtained by those you refer using the marketing tools, you are entered into the monthly drawing again and again and again. 

Chauncey’s Free QR Codes makes these tools available because they believe having these tools in place make it convenient and essential for all of their customers to market their QR codes to everyone they know through email and social media accounts.  It’s an amazing system!

Social networks are becoming the go-to platform for online promotion and commerce for home-based businesses, a new study shows. Though websites have provided a relatively inexpensive way for businesses to efficiently reach prospects since the 1990s, many home-based business owners still believe that they are difficult to create and costly to set up and maintain. As a result, less than half of home-based businesses have a website.
