First Week On Fiverr ($500 Earned)

Fiverr is a freelancing platform designed in Israel to provide users with the ability to purchase “gigs” for as little as $5.

Launched in 2010, the service has grown exponentially thanks in part to its availability to digital marketers – everyone from SEO’s to Amazon FBA power sellers outsourcing menial tasks to the experts offering their services through the platform.

By 2015, stories began to emerge of service providers making substantive revenue/profit from the system, with one – SPXMAC – reporting $40,000+ revenue per month (a remarkable achievement).

With this in mind, people with genuine skills, experience and expertise to offer have been drawn to providing their services through the system, me included.

To this end, I felt it appropriate to share some of the progress I made with the platform. It’s not a huge amount but might give some people insight into what works and what doesn’t.

Fiverr’s Online System (How It Works)

The most important thing to appreciate with Fiverr is that the provider has to create the offer for the client.

Whilst there are many other “freelancing” websites, they rely on the client putting up jobs/gigs and having providers facilitate by posting proposals. The client will then sift through the proposals and make a choice.

Due to the opposite nature of the Fiverr system, it’s opened a new way in which the “freelancing” system works.

Rather than pitching for work, the service provider is essentially able to provide a number of “products” / “services” through which they’re able to give buyers a more structured, systematic set of work.

For example, if you’re a logo provider – you’ll be selling your “logo design” service for $150 – to which buyers are able to come, ask questions and purchase.

The point is that this new model is different, and in many cases better, than the previous. It puts the entire focus onto the product/service being offered, and encourages the provider to systematize the delivery process as much as possible – allowing for even higher quality, cheaper prices and more effective service provision.

If you’re looking to create effective (profitable) products/services to list on the site, the key is understanding what buyers are actually looking for, and being able to facilitate that in the most streamlined way. This is where I began with my service offering.

Products / Services To Sell

Obviously, every marketplace / platform has its winners & losers.

The most important thing I have found on the platform is that there are really “two” ways to go about listing products/services:


  1. List products / services based on your experience – if you’re a graphic designer, create the likes of eBook covers, logo designs or website templates for menial fees
  2. List products / services based on market demand – as mentioned, many “digital marketers” use Fiverr as a source of inexpensive, but high quality, services for their growing online businesses

The first is likely going to take longer to bear much fruit; the latter will be much faster, but allow for less creativity in the offering.


I tend to try and blend the two – identify what’s popular and put my own slant on it.

Some of the most popular listings I’ve found are “Amazon Product Listing Descriptions” writing services. The most successful of these is “SPXMAC” who make upwards of $30k/$40k per month.

There are presently 3 providers of this service, typically receiving between 15 to 30 orders per day for their gigs. SPXMAC is definitely the leader.

My Experience

To explain, I didn’t do this under my own name; I helped a friend get set up and we shared the profits.

To do this, I started by listing a number of general services on the Fiverr system based on my friend’s experience in the real world (he was involved with finance).

We began with article writing – imagining that a number of high end “finance” blogs (who relied on quality, accurate and up-to-minute content) would be willing to hire an expert who had been involved with a large number of transactions, trades with a private consortium in London and is very well versed in technology as well



Why Would I Ever Use a High Interest Short Term Cash Advance Business Loan?

People often ask me, “Why would I take out a short term high interest loan of this type when I could go to the bank and get a long term low interest loan?” To which I answer, “Good question!”

Well, contractors especially, often find it very useful to keep us in their back pocket for a variety of situations. Sometimes the bank or insurance company paying out on a job may be months away and we can provide the working capital they need to pay labor and expenses. When the job pays out they pay us and everybody is happy. And since they have only made a few months of payments the interest they actually paid was pretty minimal.

However we don’t just fund contractors. Any business owner can apply. A restoration contractor I was once working on funding for told me: “If I had $100,000 I could turn it into $1-Million in 1 Storm Season.” While we loan money for many reasons this is by far the best one. Sometimes the tool you need to make money is money. If you can double, triple or more the profit level of your business, then the interest becomes a moot point because you have increased your profits many times the cost of the funding.

Whether you are a contractor or some other type of business owner this is a way a merchant cash advance loan can be a great tool because you can have the money in your account in 1 to 3 days. Often the most profitable opportunities come spur of the moment and if you do not have the ability to act in that moment, you will miss the opportunity completely and basically lose out on an incredible return on investment because you could not get he working capital fast enough to make the investment.

We can help you scale your business when the bank says no which they usually do. Not to mention they are a nightmare to deal with. You need to provide Tax Returns, Profit & Loss Statements, Business Plans etc… and you as a business owner have better things to do than compile documentation for a bank over the course of 60 to 90 days, if you are even approved at all.

As well they often want to control what you use the funds for and even if you have a perfect credit score there are many reasons they can still decline your application. In fact 80%+ of business loan applications are turned down by banks.

We approve 90% of our applications once our agents pre-screen them and all we need is 6 months of bank statements and a simple 1 page app. We check credit less than 2% of the time so your credit is not hurt, and we can usually have the funds in your account in 1 to 3 days.

Hopefully that makes it a little more clear how Mom & Pop Business Funding can be a great tool for you or any business owner to keep in your arsenal of business and money making tools.
General Contractors, Roofing Contractors, Restoration Contractors or any business owner for that matter can have access to liquid cash on demand to use for any reason by keeping Mom & Pop Business Funding on the proverbial speed dial.

A Guide To Printing Your Own Pictures, Text and Designs Onto Glass Surfaces

Decorating glass techniques vary as widely as the potential glass projects themselves. Here are a small number of popular projects that you may be considering:

Stained glass effects and simple designs are popular especially in period style properties, small alcoves, porch and front doors as well as adding finishing touches to glass windows on stairs.

Wine and beer glasses
Printing styled and coloured text is often seen on many pub glasses and effects can vary from frosted to brand logos, engraved and raised print.

Decorated mirrors tend to be a little more subtle, maybe a design in the mirrors corner or small sets of draws with mirror fronts can often have printed silhouettes on them.

Clip frames
Clip frames often have printed border decorations to enhance the beauty of your favourite pictures. Flower borders and designs in corners are common.


Beginners embarking on their first glass painting projects often start with a selection of plain glass vases to decorate. Again flowers head the list of popular designs as they lend themselves very well to outliner and glass colour inks.

Decorating glass – techniques, options and expectations

Glass printing techniques vary as widely as the potential projects but for sure, certain techniques are far simpler than others. It all depends on what you need to achieve. For example, let us say that you needed to print “Congratulations Susan and James” onto several glass vases for their wedding day. As this is a one off event, this project could easily be achieved with waterslide papers.

Waterslide papers are fantastic for transferring any image, picture or text that you’ve printed, onto virtually any hard surface. Projects are not dishwasher safe but as the effect is required for one day only, this would be the correct choice as pictures of flowers or other images could also be placed next to the text without any additional effort.

How to use waterslide decal papers for decorating glass

Packs of waterslide papers often come in 5’s or 10 A4 sheets which is enough for potentially hundreds of decal slip designs. If you have an inkjet printer you will also need to purchase some clear varnish spray. If you have a laser printer, clear varnish is not required.

Start by printing your text and / or picture onto the shiny side of the waterslide paper. Waterslide paper acts like regular paper and will travel through your printer in the same way.

Once your design is printed, wait for around 30 minutes to dry before spraying a layer of clear varnish on. (Inkjet only) Apply a couple more coats of clear varnish in quick even bursts to seal the print on the paper. This is necessary as the next stage is to dip your design into water for around 30 seconds.

The backing paper will then start to slide off, enabling you to remove from the water and slide the film containing your design, onto the glass surface. You will have several moments to reposition your design whilst gently removing any remaining water from underneath your design with your fingers and thumbs. The design will start to harden onto the glass over the next couple of hours.

Reasons for not using waterslide decal papers on glass

If the glass surface that you wish to decorate is going to be exposed to the elements or washed in water, you may want to consider other permanent options if possible.

Decorating glass with glass paints

With a little artistic ability a permanent effect can be achieved with some tracing paper, outliner and glass paint.

If your glass surface is flat like a glass coaster for instance, place the glass horizontally and trace the outline of your design onto the glass. If your glass is rounded you will need to fix the design to trace onto the inside of the glass.

Obtain some glass paint and cern outliner. Vitrea as a brand are a good choice and both glass paint and outliner are dishwasher proof once fixed in an oven at around 150c for 30 minutes.

The purpose of starting with your outline is to prevent your colours from bleeding into each other. Take a simple design like a flower for instance and imagine drawing a stem and several petal outlines around the top of the stem.

Your cern outliner comes with a precision tip. Create your outline by squeezing a little outliner into a tissue to check there are no blockages or airbubbles in the nozzles tip. As you work, keep wiping the tip. This will help prevent lines becoming too thick.

The next step would be to fill each petal with colour.

Start by applying the paint generously by puddling the paint or using a pipette. This will give a flat, stained-glass effect. To get a lighter colour paint, dilute with water. For non-water based paint use a gloss varnish.

Brushes can be used for filling in colour or for an easy option, glass paint markers can be used. Bullet tip markers are great for detail work and quick projects. Markers are especially smart for novice painters and kids. Bake-on markers, just like the paints are highly durable once baked. Synthetic brushes allow for more brush strokes whilst natural haired brushes allow for more paint to be applied for a smoother coverage.

Printing onto clear window cling film

Window cling is a clear film which uses static to cling to glass. Car window stickers for instance are made from window cling. It is now possible to obtain clear window cling to print your own images or text onto. Transparent designs and stained glass effects are quick and easy to achieve.

Print on window cling is a single sheet of film with a backing sheet that peels away after printing. Once you print your design out, cut your pictures or colours out, close to the edge before peeling the backing sheet away. Now, place your design directly onto your glass surface. You can move your window cling around until you are happy with the positioning but be careful not to touch the static side as finger marks can ruin your finished work.

Window cling can also be used to funk up indoor mirrors and are popular in kid’s bedrooms.

Decorating glass with clear adhesive paper

Probably the quickest way to transfer virtually any image, design or text onto glass is with clear adhesive film. This is a transparent a4 sheet of film with a clear adhesive backing. The process to use is very similar to that of the window cling except that you are not able to reposition your designs after applying to glass.

Where to buy glass decorating products

Your local arts and crafts store will always stock a wide range of glass paints either in tubes, as a powder or a paint. Ask for advice on which is best for the project that you have in mind.



Successful internet marketers

Successful internet marketers say money is in the list. But how true is that really? You may want to ask if you are new to this whole idea of email marketing. Well, email marketing has been around for quite some time now, and building a list is the most important component of email marketing strategies today. Without a list, you won’t be able to capture leads and convert them to customers, and hopefully repeat customers. That simply means a list is something to swear by, because there’s more opportunity to it than you could ever imagine. Your list will help you bond with potential customers and win their trust in the end. That makes economic sense, isn’t it?

Well, there are a few things you need to know before setting up that list which will act as a magnet to attract visitors, and that’s in relation to squeeze pages.

The following are 5 very powerful list building techniques that will make your website irresistible to people who dare visit it:

1 The power of creating a sense of scarcity and urgency

This is the most important thing when it comes to building a squeeze page. Creating a sense of urgency will make people rush towards subscribing to your offers. Let the reader know that your offer is not available always, and so they should subscribe before the amazing bonuses expire. Be brief, and always provide them with a reason to sign up.

2 Make it easy for them to sign up

The squeeze page template should feature the subscription box in a prominent area. If the subscription box is not visible enough, visitors won’t bother finding it. At this point, they’ll leave. The rule of the thumb is that you must not let customers leave your website without offering them a chance to sign up.

3 Experiment

It is always advisable that you experiment with different squeeze pages to see which one works better. For instance, you could change the font color from time to time, and also vary the headlines to find out what works and what doesn’t. You could even use a different background while taking note of the figures relating to your opt-ins. Once you identify that which brings the best results, stick to it.

4 Take advantage of bullet points

Bullet points enable you to convey so much using as few words as possible. After all, your squeeze page doesn’t need too much information. You want to communicate with as few words as possible, and that is what builds a perfect squeeze page.


As you definitely know, simply getting a bank to consider your business advance solicitation is hard sufficient nowadays

At the point when most business visionaries start the way toward looking for a business credit, one of the primary worries that involve their musings is the cost of the advance – to be specific the loan fee they will be charged.

As you definitely know, simply getting a bank to consider your business advance solicitation is hard sufficient nowadays – at the same time, to get one to give your business capital at a rate that you feel is the most useful to your activities is down right inconceivable. small business finance

Consistently I get demands from business visionaries (fire up or set up entrepreneurs) who need to know where they can get a modest business advance.

My answer is consistently the equivalent – characterize modest.

No credit is modest except for on the opposite side no advance is costly either – in the event that it is put to legitimate use.

The distinction between a couple of rate focuses on a credit is no where close however important as how seems to be managed the advance continues. Business credits are intended to be a utilizing resource – implying that you influence current income to get an advance at that point utilize that advance to produce more in new income than the advance expenses.

Hence, a credit is just a resource for be utilized by a business in its activity or journey to produce more pay and riches.

How about we take a straightforward model:

You and another neighborhood contender have distinguished a market specialty that might actually make new uses for your present items. While this market is yet doubtful, you both accept that it has enormous potential.

You go to your moneylender looking for a business advance for $100,000 for a very long time. The bank concurs and cites a pace of 10%; making your month to month advance installment roughly $3,227.

You feel that this rate is too high given the involved acquaintance you have had with this bank and all the cash you have paid to them throughout the long term. In addition, you put in a couple of hours web based exploring that the normal business credit rate is around 8%.

Your moneylender expresses that he could possibly get your rate diminished to 8% yet you should stand by until their next credit board of trustees in about fourteen days to get it endorsed.

At 8%, you month to month credit sum would be roughly $3,134 – a $93 each month investment funds or $3,351 over the existence of the advance more than the 10% rate for a similar sum.

Meanwhile, your rival goes to a similar bank and gets an advance statement for a similar sum at the 10% rate. Your rival takes the arrangement.

When the advance advisory group supports your 8% rate – your rival has just executed its advertising plan for this new market, has provoked interest for its items and is currently creating an extra $10,000 each month in new income from this specialty.

When your advance is subsidized, you endeavor to execute your showcasing plan however see that you are a piece as past the point of no return and your business is simply ready to create $4,000 each month in extra income (your item is viewed as a duplicate feline to the new market pioneer – your rival).

While this new income pays for the advance – the new income created for your business is still some $6,000 each month lower than your rival.

How about we take a gander at the distinction. More than three years, the aggregate sum that you need to compensate for the credit is $112,811 ($3,134 times three years). Your business acquires $4,000 each month for those equivalent three years and you procure $144,000 with a net benefit of $31,189.

Your rival spends more on his credit – $116.162 – yet acquires some $360,000 or net benefits of $243,838 or 782% more than your business all since you needed a modest advance.

The primary concern here is that the expense of the advance truly didn’t make any difference here. The value that your business paid for not getting into this specialty before your rival is a lot higher (a deficiency of some $6,000 each month in income) at that point the $93 each month you saved.

In the event that you contrast his pace of 10% with the benefit he made of some $6,773 each month ($10,000 – the regularly scheduled installment) – his credit truly was the less expensive one.

Also, it truly doesn’t make any difference on the off chance that you really had a contender attempting to beat you to the market. There is a chance expense of not taking a business advance or by not getting it when everything looks good.

Regardless of whether you were simply deferred half a month while battling for a lower rate – the measure of pay that you lose by pausing (a sum that you can never make up as time doesn’t go in reverse) would surpass the sum you were attempting to save – for this situation, (in the event that you didn’t have a contender beat you to the specialty) holding up about fourteen days would cost about $5,000 in new income while you were just getting an investment funds of $3,351 at the lower loan fee.

Presently, I am not saying that you ought do whatever it takes not to improve arrangement or lower financing cost at the same time, ensure that thusly you are not surrendering all the more then you are attempting to save.

In this way, while you quarreled about a couple of rate focuses searching for that supposed modest business credit, the value you paid for not getting your advance on time by a wide margin surpassed any likely investment funds.


Fears, Hopes, Needs, Priorities, Actions!: How Will We Proceed?

Many surveys, polls, and other studies, indicate, we are currently, experiencing, one of the darkest – periods, in recent memory, because of a variety of obstacles, attitudes, rhetoric/ vitriol, and the tendency, of many, to deny reality, and, follow our personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest, rather than focusing on the common good! Our future, and, perhaps, destiny, will be based upon, whether we pay more attention to our fears, hopes, needs, priorities, and/ or, actions! How this nation, proceeds, into the future, will have significant ramifications, into the future! With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, what each of these, means and represents, and the probable impacts, ramifications, of each.

1. Fears: President Roosevelt, famously, stated, We have nothing to fear, but fear, itself. However, if, we permit, those things, which we are afraid of, to make us stronger, etc, instead of procrastinating, we will address those things, which concern us (or, should), proactively, create a well – developed, strategic plan, and perceive and conceive of, create, develop, implement, and proceed, with meaningful, well – considered, action planning!

2. Hopes: When Donald Trump, decided to emphasize the slogan, Make America Great Again, it had the impact of enabling those, who felt, they were passed – by, too look back, instead of ahead! This has created, many people, who seem to resent progress, and, want to bring – back, their perception of the Good – Old – Days! Doesn’t it make sense, if we proceeded, forward, in a well – considered, relevant, sustainable way, the nation, our citizens, and this planet, would benefit?

3. Needs: Will we select leaders, who emphasize the needs of the nation, and citizens, or, some, who do so, selectively, and, favor their core supporters, etc? If they don’t emphasize, quality planning, to address present, and future needs, in a realistic manner, we will never be, as great, as we should!

4. Priorities: How will our elected officials, address our actual priorities, in the best, possible, way? What should we focus on, and, what will happen, if we don’t emphasize, real challenges, such as protecting our environment (clean air, and water), preparing for Climate Change (proactively), human rights, and insisting, this nation, continues to be the voice of freedom, etc, into the future?

5. Actions: Unless/ until, ideas, goals, etc, progress, forward, and a leader is ready, willing, and able, to transform, ideas, to meaningful action, our public officials, will fail us, in essential, significant ways!

How will America, proceed, into the future, and why? At this point, in – time, our challenges, will either, make us better, and stronger, or, fail us!

Internet Marketing Explained In 5 Minutes Or Less

Internet marketing is still a complete mystery to a large
majority of Internet users. For many net users, online
marketing is seen as some foreign area of the web, populated
with silly get-rich-quick schemes and unsavory characters
ready to rip off the innocent and uninformed consumer at
the click of a mouse.

In fact, Internet marketing could not be further removed
from this unfaltering picture. In reality, Internet marketing
is populated mainly gewinnspielbob  with hard working professionals promoting
and selling high quality brand products by many of the world’s
Top 500 companies.

Worldwide there are now over a billion Internet users,
representing one large global consumer base or marketplace.
The total amount of goods sold online has been steadily
increasing each year as the Internet gains in both popularity and
familiarity. Studies have shown people shop online because of
lower prices, a wider selection of products, easier comparison
shopping, and many just prefer not having to travel to stores
to make a purchase.

Handling all this online e-commerce is a whole sector of
companies, hosting providers, web designers, advertising
agencies… and so on. All this online commerce has also
given rise to a relatively new creature — the professional
Internet marketer. Someone who makes a lucrative living
helping facilitate, in one form or another, all this online

Still Internet marketing has gotten a raw deal.

If you mention to any group of professionals that you’re
an Internet Marketer and that you work full time on the Internet;
you will receive some very skeptical looks and more than one
arched eyebrow of disbelief.

Regardless of this lingering skepticism, Internet marketing
has become a viable alternative for many disgruntled professionals
dissatisfied with their working hours or conditions. It has become
a viable alternative for many people from all walks of life, from
the college student to the bored housewife to the retired doctor…
all are enjoying a part time or full time income from the comfort
of their homes.

And since the Internet is now practically available to everyone,
anywhere in the world — Internet marketing is a level playing field.
Anyone can make a full time or part time income from the web if
they truly desire it.

There are many forms of Internet marketing. There are many online
business models you can follow. There are countless ways to earn
a good honest income from the Internet. Which path you take
will be largely determined by your own work habits, your background
and what marketing style you’re most comfortable with.

Here’s a quick rundown of the most popular forms of Internet

1. The Brick and Mortar Store Online

Most major companies and retail stores have created online
versions of their brick and mortar businesses. Even if
consumers don’t buy online, many use these sites for
gathering product information before buying in the
real world. A factor many savvy businesses are exploiting
in their overall marketing strategies.

2. Online Services

Many service industries have moved online, everything
from travel to banking to dating! Again, the Internet
can be a profitable extension for any service company.

3. Internet Products/Internet Gurus

Internet marketing has a whole history of pioneers who
have forged the methods and techniques of marketing online –
opt-in lists, mini-sites, article marketing, pay-per-click
advertising, joint ventures… a brief history populated with
such names as John Reese, Marlon Sanders, Ralph Wilson,
Yanik Silver, Corey Rudl, Ken Evoy and countless others.

A whole new industry has grown around ‘How-to’ market online,
info products, workshops and web seminars — teaching
people how to market on the Internet. A marketer creating
his own product can prove very productive; as seen
by John Reese’s 2004 launch of Traffic Secrets, which earned
over a million dollars in one day. (Without a penny of paid

4. Online Advertising and Promotion

Pay-Per-Click advertising such as those offered by Google
AdWords and other companies presents another viable marketing
route. Keywords (the exact words typed into a search engine)
fuel a large portion of the web’s activity, keyword marketing
has become a major driving force behind most of the economic
transactions on the web. This is a very lucrative sector for
those Internet marketers who know exactly what they’re doing.

Then there is the whole section of SEO experts and consultants
who command high prices for positioning companies or products
in the top positions on the major search engines. Acquiring
organic Top 10 search results (SERPs) will greatly determine the
profitability of your online product or company.

5. Affiliate Marketing

One of the least understood, yet one of the most profitable
forms of Internet marketing is affiliate marketing. An online
marketer can join any affiliate program and promote its products
or services on the Internet. You market the products, find
customers for the company and receive a cut or commission
for each sale you make from your marketing efforts. These
commissions can run anywhere from 2% to over 50%. One affiliate
click can earn you anywhere from a few cents to several
hundreds of dollars.

Major third party affiliate programs or companies such as
Commission Junction, LinkShare, Amazon, Shareasale…
acts as a brokerage or go-between representing thousands of
Top Brand companies such as Sony, Apple, Dell… to online
affiliate marketers. Marketers can join a program such as
Commission Junction or LinkShare and be able to promote and
market hundred of top quality products or services online. They
can consolidate their affiliate marketing through these
third party programs.

Perhaps the most common business model for the majority
of online marketers is the last example, or a combination
of advertising and affiliate sales. Many work-from-home
professionals have adopted this business model. They have
created site or sites on the topic that interests them and
of which they have or have gained some expert knowledge.

Once these sites become established and gathering a large
amount of targeted web traffic each day, making a nice income
can only be a matter of putting the Google AdSense code on
their pages and placing a few appropriate affiliate
links on their sites.

The more traffic these marketers deliver to their sites,
the more income they earn. The more unique content they create,
the more income they earn. The more web sites they design,
the more income they earn.

What many people outside of the web marketing field fail
to realize, the Internet is a 24/7/365 business. The Internet
is always on and working for you. It is automatically producing
income for you 24 hours of the day, while you’re sleeping, while
you’re enjoying a nice meal with friends, or even while you’re
on vacation.

Internet marketing can provide you with a lifestyle that is totally
liberating — you can live and work anywhere in the world. You can
be your own boss, set your own hours and work from the comfort
of your own home. Plus your whole online Internet business can be

1. The AMA’s Report and Guidelines

In June 2007, the American Medical Association (“AMA”) released a report entitled “Medical Travel Outside the U.S.,” that tried to explain why people are going abroad for medical care. According to the AMA, the primary reasons that Americans are traveling for treatment are the ever escalating-cost of healthcare and the lack of affordable health insurance.

On June 16, 2008 the AMA re-entered the conversation with Guidelines on Medical Tourism. These guidelines address important issues of patient safety, transparency, financial incentives, after care, and legal liability. The AMA’s contributions to the medical travel industry at such an early stage is notable and important. Many American doctors strongly disapprove of patients who seek care abroad and few will agree to provide follow-up care for returning medical travelers. Those doctors are understandably concerned about incurring liability for another physician’s malpractice.

Widespread resistance in the medical community led many to believe that the AMA would either ignore or actively oppose the development of the medical travel industry. Instead, most were surprised by the AMA’s desire to get out in front of the issue and announce guidelines that some view as a traveling patient’s bill or rights.

As the health insurance industry and employers begin to explore the cost savings and benefits of medical travel, the AMA’s contributions promote patient safety and protection. The AMA has legitimized a nascent industry with only limited support from mainstream healthcare networks. Since the AMA entered the discourse, more and more health insurers are evaluating whether medical travel makes sense today, tomorrow or sometime soon.


How To Properly Utilize a Medical Alert System While Alone During a Medical Emergency

There are ways to use just about any device improperly. Lack of knowledge is typically one of the most common reasons why devices are improperly used. For devices that are created with the intent to be used in a medical emergency, such as a medical alert system, the difference between proper and improper use can be life or death.

Do you know how to react in a medical emergency? With or without a medical alert system in your home? One of the hardest things to do in a medical emergency is to not panic, but unfortunately it is one of the most common things people do in these types of situations. Panic is just the simplest response to an emergency because it is instinctual and it is done without thinking. People also panic because they have no idea what else to do! This is very sad because panicking is the most dangerous reaction a person could have in an emergency situation. People who panic can cause a lot more harm than good during a medical emergency. One of the best ways to keep yourself from panicking during a medical emergency is to know how to handle one, especially for when you are all by yourself. Here are some great tips to help you know how to handle a medical emergency and get through it in the safest way possible.

Press Your Medical Alert Button
For the most part, since you have equipped your home with a medical alert system, you can easily call for help by hitting your medical alert button located on your medical alert bracelet, necklace or pendant. This will automatically dial a care center where a trained help advisor will be on the line in just seconds, ready to call your family members, friends, neighbors or send emergency assistance to help you with any medical emergency. The help advisor will also stay on the line with you until help arrives. However, if you are out of your home, or maybe you have unfortunately not invested in a medical alert system, you will need to call 911. In cases where you are alone, reaching the phone may be difficult to do if you are injured after a fall and you are unable to move. That is why a medical alert system is very valuable to have, especially during a medical emergency when you are all by yourself.
