zenni specsOK, I’ve been getting a whole lot of email since the post I did called Buying Eyeglasses Online Can Save You Heaps asking me if I had ever bought eyeglasses from Zenni and I have to in all honesty say that I haven’t but only because I had just recently spent over $500 for a pair of prescription sunglasses as well as my normal glasses. Why two sets? Well, basically because they were offering a buy one get one free deal so I thought what the heck as long as they’re going to throw one in for free. :wink_ee: Too bad really, because I could have saved a packet if I had at least tried Zenni out.

Why Are Zenni So Cheap?

This is something I’ve asked myself before and the only reason I could come up with is because they cut out the middle man. I did manage to find this bit of information though;

Using the latest modern materials, manufacturing and marketing systems we bring our product direct from our factories to you. No middlemen, no retail overhead, and practically no advertising budget,(we leave it to you, our satisfied customers to spread the word), we do not pay for or sell expensive, or even inexpensive, brand names, but only our own manufactured brand ZENNI. Eyeglasses are definitely a personal fashion and style item, and to that end we strive to provide a fashionable and stylish product. More importantly, we feel prescription eyeglasses are a health item necessity for most wearers, and to that end we take considerable pride in being able to bring to all a very high quality product of great durability, safety and comfort at truly reasonable and affordable prices.

It just goes to show that Word Of Mouth Is A Very Powerful Advertising Weapon! As true as that is word of mouth only works if you have a product that is so good others are willing to their friends what a great experience they had from either buying a product or using a service.

As bloggers we all know how hard it is to get to where we want to be and then once we’re there how hard it is to stay there. That is true for any online company which is why Zenni would have to constantly reinvent their eyeglasses design so they can maintain a hold on their market. Apparently, being the holiday season and all the guys at Zenni have release some Holiday Themed Zenni Optical Frames!

I’ve included just two of over 3000 prescription glasses that you can choose from online. Heck, if you have some time to kill you may as well check out their range, even if you’re not ready to buy any just yet and just for the fun of it why not let us know which one is your favourite by leaving a comment.

Would I purchase glasses from them? At those prices I would definitely give them a shot but that won’t be for a couple of years yet. Tell you what though, if the guys down there are willing to give me a free pair just so I can tell you of my actual experience with them I will certainly take them up on it. :wink_ee:

Having only just bought my glasses I can only imagine the gifts I could have bought for the loved ones. Man, I could even have gone to a well deserved weekend away with the family. Now that would really be something.

Update On Adbeans – Can You Make Money With Adbeans

After my post Using Adbeans To Increase Your Online Income I know that a lot of you have been waiting with bated breath to see whether or not these guys actually pay you for something as simple as pasting a link in a post that you were going to write anyway.

That post got quite a few comments some of which were sceptical, mainly because they felt that the adbeans site looked somewhat unprofessional, something that I disagreed with at the time. Still, before we get into exactly what I feel about adbeans I think we should get one very important thing out of the way. Do they pay their dues?

Do Adbeans Pay What They Owe?

Yep, that has to be the million dollar question and I thought the best way to answer it was to take a video of the payment process and post it on YouTube so that you can see with absolute surety as to whether or not these guys actually pay you what you are owed.

Now that I’ve answered the question about getting paid by Adbeans I want to continue this post by writing about my experience with them. All in all it has been a pretty positive one because as I explained in that first post you are able to incorporate a link into your normal post without having to actually write about the link in question. Having said that there are a couple of things about them that are not entirely positive.

  1. Getting them to answer a question about their product is a bit like pulling hens teeth. I sent several emails requesting more information about them so that I could write a more informed post but to date have never received a concise reply. What I was able to garner though was that they are looking for Travel or Business blogs / sites, which explains why this one was never accepted.
  2. That’s it really, apart from that one thing my experience has really been a positive one. If they could resolve that and maybe improve their FAQ’s I’m sure they will improve people’s experience with their site.

Why I Believe In Merry Christmas

Four years ago I wrote a post on one of my other blogs called No More Ho Ho Ho For Santa This Christmas which was all about some recruitment firm who were training their Father Christmas guys to say Ha Ha Ha instead of Ho Ho Ho. Naturally they were created with ridicule by the majority as they should be.

Today I woke up to news that a Sydney Montessori school had replaced Merry Christmas with Happy Holidays! Talk about political correctness gone wrong, especially when it involves kids. I’m amazed that they can’t see they just don’t have the right to ruin Christmas for these kids. It’s almost like your friend telling blurting out to your little ones that Santa doesn’t exist.

Leave Christmas Alone

Santa WatchingThe excuse used by the headmaster of the school for removing Christmas referencesfrom the end-of-year songs may have been an “attempt by one teacher to address the fact that she had Hindus and Jewish children in the classroom”. What a lot of crap! Those kids wouldn’t have minded a bit and neither would have their parents. They knew what sort of country they came to when they migrated here and I’m sure they respect our right to our culture just as much as we respect theirs.

The problem all lies with the PC police, The Political Correct morons who make rules up because they’re worried about upsetting those that we have welcomed into our multicultural society. What they fail to see is that by doing that they are upsetting the majority of the population. They have no qualms at all about removing Christ from the equation but I’m sure they would never, ever attempt removing Allah from it because that would upset all the Muslims. But it’s OK to upset the Christians because we are more likely to roll over and accept it?

For the life of me I don’t understand why people have to change things, like using Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. It’s been Merry Christmas for so long and all of a sudden it’s not good enough. If you really want to say Happy Holidays that is fine but everyone knows that it’s the Christmas Holidays we’re talking about so why not just say Merry Christmas and be done with it.

I truly believe that if it wasn’t for those PCM’s (Politically Correct Morons) people would not be trying to replace Merry Christmas with Happy Holidays not to mention all the other PC nonsense that exists.

Happy Holiday Or Merry Christmas

I’m not about to tell anyone which one they should use as I believe its really a matter of personal choice. As far as I’m concerned I’m going to continue to use Merry Christmas and these are the reasons why.

  • Happy Holidays is so generic and as far as I’m concerned it sounds like a half hearted attempt at wishing someone all the best for Christmas, almost like you don’t really mean it.
  • Not everyone has the luxury of having a break over Christmas. I know that for 25 years I was never able to take a break over Christmas so having someone say Happy Holidays to me would have pissed me off no end whereas Merry Christmas would have made much more sense.

I know the Yanks make a big deal over saying Happy Holidays and I for one hope it never comes here. It would pain me no end if our department stores directed employees to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. I understand in the States they celebrate a lot of holidays in November and December and they’re trying to convince people that Happy Holidays incorporate all the holidays including Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah. What a lot of BS, I’m sure that most people say Happy Thanksgiving during that time of year and not Happy Holiday.

Anyway, like I said it should be up to the individual to say whatever they want and that’s the way it should be. As for me, I wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
