Designing a site takes a large amount of time and hard work. You do not want to see all of your time and hard work get wasted by allowing your website to go live when it still has many problems. Therefore, you must make sure that your site is truly ready to be used by the masses. There are a number of things that need to be done before you officially put your site online. Launching your site when it still has a few problems could be a disaster for your brand. Basically, you will develop the reputation of being incompetent. Unfortunately, reputations on the Internet are very difficult to get rid of once you get them. This is why you must avoid a situation like that from occurring in the first place. Here are some of the most essential tasks to complete before your site goes live.

1. Check the search engine

The search engine on your site is a vital tool when it comes to allowing your customers to find items they are looking for in a fast and efficient manner. Problems with your search engine could cause searches to take much longer then they normally should. Many people have very little patience when they are doing their shopping. A delay involving your search engine could prevent you from making a sale. This is why you must thoroughly check the search engine before any member of the general public is able to use it. You should also verify that only the correct items are being listed when a search is being performed. A common problems of website search engines occurs when they list items that are different than the one the user is trying to find.

2. Payment system

You will be in big trouble if none of your customers are able to pay when they find what they are looking for. Verify that nothing is wrong with your merchant account by making a few purchases using your own credit card. Test all of the other forms of payment that you are willing to accept. Do not go live until each payment method is working perfectly with no glitches. You will need to make sure that your domain name registration went through without any problem.

3. Shopping cart

Customers will use your online shopping cart to select items they want to buy until the person is ready to pay for them. Unfortunately, some sites experience problems with their site that are a nuisance. For example, items disappear from shopping carts without any explanation. There have also been cases where multiple copies of the same item will show up in a shopping cart shortly before checkout. Iron out all of the shopping cart details with the person who helped you design your site. Keep testing it for as long as you have to in order to ensure that nothing like this happens when your customers are trying to buy products. You want to avoid frustrating your customers and causing them to leave.

Making Money As A Lottery Affiliate


I’ve probably written several posts about being a lottery affiliate. I’ve also got a page on one of my lottery sites that shows some of the best lottery affiliates to join. Last month I did a post promoting the US Powerball. The reason for that was because the jackpot had reached a never before seen level. Over US$1.6 BILLION!!!

That stirred a lot of interest all over the globe of people wanting to purchase their US Powerball tickets online. The traffic to my two blogs went from twenty or so a day to close to 500 a day. The best thing is all that interest converted into new customers and a lot more cash.

Best Lottery Affiliate Sites

Lottery AffiliateProbably my best performer was Ginatlottos.com. The image above show my stats for the month of January. As you can see 38 new clients joined under me. They are now my customers for life and every time they buy a ticket I earn my commission.

My commission for January was £273 which is over AU$560. That’s the best ever performance I’ve had for a single month. While I don’t expect anywhere near that amount for this month I know with all those extra customers my sales will be better than previous months. In fact it’s already up  :drunk_tb:

You can join as an affiliate here.

Next we have figures from my earnings as a theLotter affiliate. Again notice that I recruited another 18 new members who are now my customers for life. Once again every time they buy a ticket I will earn my commission. My earnings from my theLotter customers was AU$232

You can join as a theLotter affiliate here.

Next we have my earnings as a Wintrllions affiliate. Only 8 new customers but that still adds to the ever growing potential of my passive income.

You can become a Wintrillion affiliate here.

I’m not going to convert the dollar amount as I think you get what I’m getting at. Mainly that my becoming a lottery affiliate was a very good move. Who knows, with time I may actually be able to earn a living from home.

Unreal Expectations Friday Funnies #199


I’ve found in  life that having unreal expectations can be very frustration and sometimes can be quite upsetting. I remember one day going to work with the unreal expectation of finding that everything would be done. Unfortunately it wasn’t and I was pretty pissed for most of the day. I’ve now learned not to have any expectation at all let alone unreal expectations and I’ve been a lot better since.

I realise this post is a Friday Funnies post and the following story of unreal expectations has what I believe is a funny ending. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did?

The Funny Side Of Unreal Expectations

Last week was my birthday and I didn’t feel very well waking up on that morning. I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my husband would be pleasant and say, ‘Happy Birthday!’, and possibly have a small present for me. As it turned out, he barely said good morning, let alone ‘ Happy Birthday.’

I thought…. Well, that’s marriage for you, but the kids…. they will remember. My kids came bouncing down stairs to breakfast and didn’t say a word. So when I left for the office, I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.

As I walked into my office, my handsome Boss Rick, said, ‘Good Morning, lady, and by the way Happy Birthday! ‘ It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered. I worked until one o’clock, when Rick knocked on my door and said, ‘You know, It’s such a beautiful day outside, and it is your Birthday, what do you say we go out to lunch, just you and me..’

I said, ‘Thanks, Rick, that’s the greatest thing I’ve heard all day. Let’s go!’

We went to lunch. But we didn’t go where we normally would go. He chose instead a quiet bistro with a private table. We had two martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously. On the way back to the office, Rick said, ‘You know, It’s such a beautiful day… We don’t need to go straight back to the office, Do We?’

I responded, ‘I guess not. What do you have in mind?’

He said, ‘Let’s drop by my place, it’s just around the corner.’

After arriving at his house, Rick turned to me and said, If you don’t mind, I’m going to step into the bedroom for just a moment. I’ll be right back.’

‘Ok.’ I nervously replied.

He went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes, he came out carrying a huge birthday cake . Followed by my husband my kids, and dozens of my friends and co-workers, all singing ‘Happy Birthday’.

And I just sat there….On the couch….Naked.

See, everyone in that room had unreal expectations and they were all surprised by the actual outcome.

Moral of this story is not to have unreal expectations, but of course, you all got that right?
