Is Your Affiliate Venture Big Enough for Software?

Hardly a day will pass when you are not exposed to some sort of advertising to get rich quick. Most of these are coming from affiliate marketers who want you to help them sell their products. This can actually be a lucrative investment, if the product is right, and you know how to market it.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a smart way to get your product noticed, without having to pay much in advertising. Instead, you commission – not hire – sales people to pitch it to the world. For their time and efforts, they are paid a commission for every sale that they make. The potential to earn even more lies in their ability to attract other marketers, allowing them to earn a percentage of their sales as well.

Let’s say for example you found a great new product like a konjac sponge. And the company that you bought it from has an affiliate program. You sign up, and then begin extolling the virtues of the konjac sponge to everyone in your contact list. You might even direct them to visit a review site for konjac sponges just so they can get a better understanding of how great it works.

Now, you have made a few sales, and start telling a friend how easy it is to make money with this wonderful konjac sponge. So they want to do it to. They list you as the referral when signing up, and now each time they make a sale, you make a profit.

Is a Software Program Necessary for Affiliate Marketing?

If you do decide that you can make a living off of selling the konjac sponge or other natural products, you are going to want a good software program to help you keep track of your own affiliates. The key to making money here is not in your direct sales, but in coaching and managing the marketers you have recruited. By using a software program, you can track their results, keep up with their marketing methods, and let them know what’s working and what is not.


The main purpose of a good affiliate marketing software program should be tracking the results not just of the individual, but of their specific actions. This enables you to be a better coach, by zeroing in on their strengths and weaknesses.

If you are looking for a way to earn some extra cash from home, then stop sending the make money emails to the spam folder. Take the time to check out the product first to see if it is as sellable as a konjac sponge is. Get a software program once your empire starts to grow, and you just may be one of the lucky ones making money off of someone else’s hard work.

Designing Your Dream Home With Online Software

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to rip down your house and start from scratch? Or maybe you would like to see how that new living room set will fit inside of the space before you go ahead and have it delivered to your door. All of this is now possible with an array of online software programs that you can use to create a home.

These are sophisticated programs that emulate what architects and professional interior design teams use, except simplified to make them easy to use for anyone to use. I just took a peek at Sweet Home 3D and was super impressed with the graphics, the options in designs and ability to add accessories to see if it all fits together. Plus it is all in 3D, and offers you various angles to look at the work in progress.

How it Works

Let’s say you are starting from the bottom up, and creating a brand new home. You start with the dimensions, using a grid to map out the outline of the home. From there, it is mostly click and drag to add the elements you want. Plus the list of features, add-ons and accessories is extensive.

If you have a portable infrared sauna and wanted to add a special sauna room to the house, since you know how good they can be, you can. And then you can even place the infrared sauna inside to see how much room is left over. You now have an exact replica of how your new sauna room will look and the infrared sauna sitting inside of it. You can even get started on the shopping process now by going to!


These programs are incredible to work with both for the range of opportunities and high tech design. You can download them if you want, or choose to work on your dream home entirely online. For free. With the ease of use and extensive catalog of items, you are going to have a hard time walking away from this program.

Other Features

You can be planning on the design in 2D, while looking at it from an aerial 3D view. You can even place yourself inside of the home and see it the way a virtual visitor does. By adding in the coordinates of the home, even sunlight is accounted for, and you can switch over to photo view for a more realistic image.

You don’t need to building a brand new home to benefit from this type of online software. If you are planning a renovation on your kitchen, or adding an extra room, you can use this to get an idea of the finished project before you even start on it. With the range of options and features, you may end up inspired to take on a whole other project.

Have You Ever Wondered How They Make French Fries All Look the Same?

Computer software invades areas of your life that you never even consider. Take a bag of frozen French fries for example. When you open it up, almost each one is cut and sized exactly the same. Now if you have ever tried to make French fries at home, you know this is an almost impossible feat to pull off.

Now you may be thinking that a machine is doing the job of making uniform potato wedges to be dropped inside of any old deep fryer, but that would only be halfway true. For true perfection, most companies rely on a computer software program that monitors the machinery, the potatoes and the way in which they are cut. Not only that, but each deep fryer in the professional side of things has been vetted with huge amounts of peering over reviews and vigorous testing.

This computer software is known as Sort-to-Grade which is a multi-faceted food industry program that enables the perfect fry by monitoring the raw potato from start to finish.

French fry manufacturers go to great lengths to ensure that the potatoes they choose are uniform in size and free from defect. Yet, this process is never precise, and bad potatoes will always be found in a batch.

The sorting portion of the computer software program is designed to quickly identify out of grade or damaged potatoes in a large batch. This speeds up production time while ensuring quality in the product. Better still, the program self adjusts if there is a fluctuation in the product specifications. Today may be steak fry day, but when shoestring fry day rolls around, the software program is ready for it.


The decision on which tater to keep is made from a holistic perspective. Companies have noted that with this approach their product has seen a significant rise in quality. Defected potatoes are ejected immediately, while those that pass the stringent specs are allowed to pass through. This ensures that the finished product is always able to meet its grade.

Now, instead of needing employees who are able to mess with heavy machinery to make adjustments, it is all done by a computer keyboard. This makes for a safer workplace environment, and a lower cost in training individuals to watch over the potato sorting and grading process. Plus, since the program is able to self-adjust, the operator’s job is merely a supervisory one as opposed to having to be directly hands on in any of the procedures.

The next time you heat up that deep fryer to have fries at home, consider the advanced technology that is being used to make them look so pretty. Technology and computer software combined really has invaded more of your life than you ever imagined possible.

The Rise of the Archery Video Game

The sport of archery has become a major component of a large number of new video games over the last couple of years. This of course coincides with the sudden popularity in the sport as TV and movies are using bows and arrows as part of the action sequence more and more. Take a look at some of these new games, and realistic to the real thing they really are.

The Last of Us and The Last of Us Remastered

This game has raised quite a stir among the gaming world. With incredible attention to detail, the avatar is sent on missions to rescue the few left behind after a massive destruction of the world. The graphics are amazing and allow you to see the string vibrate as the arrow is placed and the recurve bow raised. Made for the Playstation, this is one adventure game that won’t leave you disappointed.

The Legend of Zelda

The older crowd is absolutely thrilled that Nintendo brought this game back to life with state of the art graphics that make us chuckle at the 64 version. The knight is on the same quest to save the princess, but this time it is clear that he holds a dangerous recurve bow to use in his battles against your typical slew of Nintendo bad guys.


Rise of The Tomb Raider

We are greatly anticipating the return of Lara for the PlayStation and Xbox this year. This has been a very lucrative enterprise for the brands that carry the games, especially after Angelina Jolie brought the beloved character to life. As Lara is a warrior of simple tastes, we expect to find her with her recurve bow and arrows raised and waiting like they teach at when the game finally does hit store shelves later this year.


The ultimate in the kill the zombie genre that has ultimately taken over the world, H121 is the perfect combination of two very popular trends: Zombies and recurve bows and arrows. What better way to ensure that the undead now stays dead with specialized arrows dipped in zombie venom? Very cool and original concept.

Nintendo has also developed a series of archery related video games for the Wii. These allow the player to “shoot” at the target in a virtual mode. Wii has revolutionized the home gaming system and the entire way in which we are able to enjoy video games.

Adding the element of archery to action filled video games has been very lucrative for the industry. It adds a bit more skill to the game then your garden variety weapons of mass destruction. This is what is responsible for their growing popularity and the continued use of the bow and arrow as the preferred weapon for the video game hero and heroine.

Software programs will keep track of the sites and who has booked them so that no mistakes are made.

A program that tracks your bookings will be invaluable to your campsite.


It will also save you time. If you can make a comprehensive map of the site online with the campsites laid out, guests can login and choose and book the site they want. No more spending a half hour explaining which sites are still available that are within 2 minutes of the nearest restroom. Instead, it is up to the camper to figure out which sites that are still available will be the best for them to lay out their sleeping bags.

Directions to and Inside of the Site

This is another time saving device that will be a part of your software program. A map of the area with detailed directions to the entrance of your campsite, and directions on how to get around the campsite. With your map printed out, and a trusty compass, campers will no longer be bothering you with time wasting phone calls on the best route to use to get to your camping grounds.

Financial Aides

You can get very fancy with your campsite software and set it up to allow booking payments to be made online. No need to worry about cancellations and empty sites anymore. In order to secure the site of their choice, a camper will have to pay for it upfront, online, using their credit card.

These merchant services can be expanded to take care of your office work. Pay your bills using the campsite software, keep track of invoices and know when you are running out of stock items. Your typical office work will be cut down to a fraction, allowing you and the staff to focus more attention on the natural environment that you are taking care of.

Tell your campers to get their sleeping bags and tents ready now, ‘cause your campsite is about to leap forward into the 21st century. With software that puts your campsite online, you are not only going to make your job easier, you are going to make your campsite busier.

Wireless Sensors – No Need to Build Fences for Pets

Are you aware for the wide range of uses of wireless sensors nowadays? You are probably wondering what software or application is running behind these sensors that they are capable of monitoring various activities through the use of wireless technology.

This technology is being used for a very long time now and it started of course as a monitoring tool for military activities. However, due to its wide range of benefits, wireless technology is now being applied to almost any device that is available in the market – even dog fences!

If you find it very harsh for your pets to be confined inside a fence or a containment system when you are leaving them or awhile, you will be amazed with this wireless sensor technology that you can use as an alternative option.

Wireless pet containment systems are built to give your pet the freedom to roam around at a certain area or perimeter that you set, to make sure that it is safe from harm and it can still be monitored. With this wireless fence, you don’t have to worry about burying fences under the ground and you don’t have to put your pet on a containment system just to keep them from getting hurt or hurting others as well.

How Does This Wireless Technology Work?

Wireless tech has come a long way.

These wireless fences are not that complicated to use. You will have a variety of designs and options to choose from depending on what conform to your own safety standards. What makes these fences similar to each other is having a transmitter go with a receiver which will be installed on your pet’s collar.

The first thing that you will have to configure is the transmitter as this defines the boundary or area that you allow your pet to roam to. The transmitter will send signals to the receiver defining the boundary on where your pet should be allowed to play and go to. These signals don’t harm your pet, they most likely trigger a vibration on your pet’s collar as a form of corrective action so your pet will not go further than its boundaries. This is also one good way of training your pets to stay at the same place and avoid leaving the area for safety measures.

Just imagine this. Now that you have these types of wireless fences where some could as well be handy, you can possibly bring your pet anywhere without having to worry about its safety and your pet causing harm to others. With this type of wireless technology you can now give your pet the freedom to enjoy roaming around while it is safe and sound.

Beard Apps? What’s Happening in the Software World?

The other day I was browsing through some apps on my iPhone to get a feel of what was hot right now. There’s obviously your repetitive games, your weight loss and fitness tracking apps, your RPGs, music, cameras, and on and on.

But what I found interesting was that there are multiple apps for showing what you would look like with a beard or with a different hair style. They’re trying to do away with the old grow a beard and get a beard trimming device from to see how your beard looks. It’s going against the basis of man, really.

First one I checked out was called Hair & Beard Lite+, which you can find here:

It was a bit cheesy, but what else can you expect from this market? I doubt anyone actually goes out and gets a hair cut or grows a beard because this app shows them how good they’d look with one.

Philips also has a web-based software application called Style Yourself (found here: that shows you how you look with different facial hair. It’s not without it’s faults, particularly if you try taking a webcam picture, but otherwise it’s a pretty slick little application. Again, not like I’ll be growing a handlebar mustache, but you get the drift.

For me, I’ll be sticking with my handy tools in the real world, like my Philips QT4070 and my handy nose trimmer.
