I went back and looked at the bottom of the item

It still had some stickers on it. I found one with a number on it. I’ll use that in my online search for a better price.

In the mean time, I went and bought out all the store had yesterday, 82 in all. Yikes! Did I actually do that?! I ended up getting 15% off the total order so that was good. It is actually a candle holder but works perfectly as a coaster holder.

Thank you so much. That means a lot coming from you! I am still somewhat technically insufficient but am learning a lot. I still have a ways to go but will get there in due time. My goal is to spend time every day on the website till I get it where I want it, then kind of go in to maintenance mode. If you have any words of advice on websites–and have some time–I’d love to hear them.

BTW, you are doing great on getting your business going

If you have the name of the company, or a tag from the product you found in town you can call your public library and ask for “information please” or at least that is how we ask for it at our library system. They will put you in to the reference department. Using the info you have they have a way of looking up the exact manufacturer and their contact information for you for free. This was one of my jobs when I worked for Advertising Novelties. Customers would bring us a product sample and ask us how much we could provide it for in group lots.

Question about entity

Does anyone know if Primerica is an MLM? Anything good or bad about it? I am mostly a lurker, but am involved with one MLM (Shaklee) and have family members who are involved in others (Market America, Melaleuca).

That statement was made in jest

However, sadly, if one wants to make any kind of real money in Amway, you got to get yourself in the tools business. Everybody who has been in Amway or dealt with Amway knows that there is no money to be made, unless you tap into the tools business. The statement sounds a lot like something like mob speak. Amway operates very much like the mob, only they wrap up their dealings in the American flag and God and Country bit. You would not believe what those people do, and how deep their pockets are. They are truly evil. But don’t take my word for it. Read the book “Merchants Of Deception.” Do a google search. I was lucky. I was lazy enough not to work the business seriously.

If I was a wiseguy, I probably would of taken my diamond upline out back and had a little chat. But I don’t operate that way. There are so many good honest people that got caught up in the Amway scam, it hurts. I see the damage that has been done, I have seen lives destroyed. I will never touch any kind of MLM ever again.

I will always speak out against Amway. I will discourage people from joining. I will always warn everyone I know not to join Amway. And if they have a problem with that, so what. They come to my door, they will have hell to pay.

Hope that helps.

I know a lot of people make some money on Google’s advertising models

The trick is you have to have a website that gets traffic so you have people who click through on the ads. If you’ve got the site already, then I’d suggest adding some ads from Google. It won’t make you rich, but it might provide some income. Remember, a lot of bloggers who are big make their money on ads on their site.

Alternatives?

If we all agree that MLM’s won’t make us any money, what do you think about click through? Like Google Adsense and the like? This seems a cheaper and less dangerous way of making money?
I post to a blog giving information to writers looking for work, so I post click through banners on the site to try and make a bit of money on the side.
Now I’m not looking for a fortune as in an MLM, but I’m seriously thinking of placing an order for traffic submission to generate a little interest.
What experiences has any body had with this type of marketing?
Does it work?
