Is E-Commerce Finally Getting Your Attention?

Or do you have that deer in the headlight, "E-Commerce what?" expression on your face? It's really easy to decipher when you break the word down. For instance, the E part stands for electronic. So any time you see e- before just about anything it is referring to the electronic or digital version of that item. That means it is a product that can be sold and often delivered online. Add to that the term commerce and you basically have an electronic storefront.

But commerce is more than just a store. The dictionary definition of commerce is - the activity of buying and selling, especially on a large scale. And e-commerce is - commercial transactions conducted electronically on the internet. So with that in mind, e-commerce is not limited to electronic products like:

  • E-books - books delivered in digital format usually known as pdf files. PDF stands for portable document format.
  • Digital images that can be downloaded to your computer hard drive
  • E-zines - an electronic magazine often delivered as a monthly subscription for a fee.
  • Membership Sites - These are often online coaching sites
  • Teleconferences - These are also known as teleclasses and can be formatted to be delivered live with audience participattion as well as recorded and sold as products.
  • Webinars - A webinar is usually a tutorial delivered in the form of a slideshow presentation. Here again they can be live with audience participation as well as recorded for listening to at a later date.
  • Video - Many people even deliver classes and tutorials by video.

Many of these same products can be found free.

What's New on Photo Blog

I'm not sure if you are following my blog or not but here are a few bits of wisdom I've written since the last updates. I guess transcribing these weekly tele-seminars really inspires me. Please note, the links in this section open in a new window. If they appear not to work try holding down your control key (command for MAC) when you click.

  • Are you Throwing Out The Good With The Bad? Sometimes we get so busy in our lives we forget about the gems we have right under our fingertips. You are the artist of your life and every gift you give from your heart is like the clay balls in this little story.
  • Northern Blue Butterfly Picture How often do you play around with the zoom on your point and shoot camera? Have you ever tried to zoom in on a tiny butterfly? One day while walking along a nearby lake I happened to spot this tiny white butterfly out of the corner of my eye. Quickly I aimed my camera and got this first shot.
  • Play a Happy Song And Come Dance Along Have you ever felt like a song came on the radio just for you? Or maybe even was written just to bring a smile to your face? Let me tell you the story about a little one minute tune that did just that for me.
  • How to Energize Get Back to Maximum I have heard that we are at maximum effeciency is only two and a half hours long. That means that pushing yourself beyond that point can be counter-productive. Now I don't know about you but stopping after 21/2 hours at the computer is almost unheard of.
  • Follow Your Dreams or Dream Your Future? Recently I was transcribing an audio interview with Marie Diamond, Feng Shui Master and she was asked what told her that this was the purpose of her life. Her response reminded me of a dream that I had as a teenager myself. She said that at the age of fifteen she had three major accidents.
  • What Does Heart Have to do With It? Are we ready for a dimensional shift? What are dimensions? And how are dimensional shifts made?

    It seems everywhere you turn these days there is a new theory or take on the need for change. The subject has become so popular that it was even a major contributing factor to this years presidential election. And every month there seems to be a new book on the subject of 2012, consciousness shifts and new perceptions.

  • Are We Having Fun Yet? How many times have you heard the question, "Are we there yet?" If you are a parent or have ever taken children on a car ride, I bet it is more than once. So then we grow a little older and the question becomes, "Are we having fun yet?"
