Domain names are similar to your business or house address. It is how you are found on the Internet. Without it, you do not exist, at least not on line. The biggest difference is that you get to create a name representing the services and/or products you provide.

With the changes in search engine protocols and algorithms, selecting a searchable domain name is important. The repeated suggestion is to use your keywords in your business name, domain name, and description of the site.

Domain name extensions are also of importance. The one’s most common, .com, .net, and .org come readily to mind when conducting a search, with .com the top of the list. The reason could be that it was the first extension available. The result is first come, first in mind.

Take your paper and pen, write out a list of words that relate to your business. This can include services and products. The name of your business is included on this list. Using a thesaurus look up each word. Make a note of phrases and words that grab your attention. Your page should be leaking onto the next page.

This may seem tedious and too much work. And you are correct. It can take an hour or so to do the research. I ask you to consider the long term, the time you invest now could pay of in huge dividends later. A great domain name vs a terrific domain name, makes all the difference to your bank account.

From the notes try a keyword search. I like Google’s keyword tool in Adsense. You do not have to have an Adsense account, but you may wish to set one up eventually. No worries, it is easy.

The keyword tool is not difficult to understand. Enter three or four words, to get started. If you do not have an account, the Captcha code needs to be entered. Click to begin the search. A list will appear with the keywords you entered and below that a long list of variations. Repeat these steps until you have completed your list.

The first column is the keyword or phrase; the second column is the competition for search, and the third column is the number of global monthly searches. The fourth column contains the number of local monthly searches.

Click the header Competition, the list will organize by High or Low. The first click lists the highly competitive keywords, the second will list the lowest competitive keywords. You want to look at the lowest. Next look at the global or local monthly searches. Make a list of the keywords with the highest searches and low competition.

From this list begin creating a variety of domain names. Next, use these phrases individually in the keyword search tool and repeat the steps to organize by low first. Select those that have a higher search rate. These steps will help you narrow your search for a domain name list.

With the cost of prescriptions climbing and co-pay increasing, you may find yourself having to make the decision between eating or purchasing medication. There is no one simple answer to this problem. However, using a free prescription card that offers a discount on your medication is a bonus. There are thousands of prescription cards available with a varying rate of discounts. Not all medication is covered, for instance brand names do not receive as great a discount as the generic version. Not all brand name medications offer a generic version.

Sorting through the fine print may be too daunting to bother with. Understanding how a prescription card works for you and the company providing it is just as daunting. Who wants to read several pages of legalese? Who would have that sort of time? The desperate do not want to take the time. Everyone should shop around for the best deals. There are a few terms that can make it easier to grasp the benefits and problems with the various prescription cards available.

Free

The card is free to you. No fees, no payments, or annual dues are asked of you. Ever. If the prescription card is free and you are asked to make a payment of some sort for the card itself, walk away. Tell that person no thank you.

The prescription card does not provide free medication. What it is designed to do is provide you a discount on your medications. Discounts may range from 20 percent to 90 percent. The discount will depend on the medication. There are some cards that can help you pay for cancer treatments and medical equipment.

Disclaimer

Every prescription card has a disclaimer. The most important point to understand about the card is that it is not insurance. It does not pay for medical treatments, or provide discounts. There should be an explanation about the terms regarding prescription supplies. For instance the cost quoted is for a 30-day supply.

Providers

The providers are those pharmacies that will accept your prescription card. Check the directory provided by the prescription card company. Pharmacies may provide a prescription club service, like Walgreens and Walmart, where costs are reduced by as much as 90 percent on generics and less of a discount on brand names.

How do prescription cards work?

Actually the question should be, how can anyone offer a free prescription card? What’s the gimmick or catch? Each company that provides a free prescription card offering various discounts on medications, treatments, supplies, and equipment receive a payment for each instance. In other words, when you use your card, the company will get paid. There is money to earn with prescription cards. A few companies are in search of affiliates to hand out free cards. Affiliates earn a percentage or flat rate for each prescription.

Where to find your prescription card?

A Google search will turn up over 300,000,000 million links. You could search all of them, but…

If you have a favorite pharmacy, check with the pharmacist about discounts, prescription card program. For instance, CVS Pharmacy provides a card you can use at any of their participating stores. If you have insurance check to see if they have a prescription plan. Medicare & Medicaid provide most medications free. Not all prescription cards can be used with Medicare or Medicaid. Check the fine print of both programs.

Free Prescriptions

There are prescription manufacturers that will send you medication free or at a generous discount based upon your income. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance is the place to go. There is a phone number to call or you can apply directly on line. Once the application process is complete you will know if your medication is covered or if a prescription card is your best bet. TogetherRX is a partner of this program, offering discounts on many medications.

Earn By Giving Away Free Prescription Cards

There is a prescription card that provides several programs with the prescription cards. Affiliates earn $1 per prescription filled and a decent percentage from the other programs. There are two ways you can hand out cards, printing them yourself or purchasing printed cards.

For more information contact me. Affiliates are wanted now. Learn more by dropping me an email or chatting with me on Yahoo or Skype.

Now, $1 p/prescription may not seem like a lot of money. However, if you give out thousands of cards and thousands of prescriptions are filled, you can make thousands. 🙂 Apologies. I could not resist that last sentence. The truth is that all programs work like this. The more you give, the more you can get, the more work you do the more you earn. Just a matter of doing the math.
