New Site Changes Online Auctioning

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

A new auction site launched last week called YouNeverLose. So far the business is living up to its name. The site allows you to buy rewards points in order to place bids on expensive items that you aim to win for well under market value. What makes this particular online auction so different is that they give you your money back.

Once you buy the rewards package you are guaranteed to get your money back in the form of a gift card. When I first heard this I was skeptical, I thought I would get 25 bucks back on some gift card to the piggly wiggly, but I was wrong. The selection of cards is actually very impressive: Banana Republic, Bath and Body Works, Old Navy, and so on.

It would be nice to see more auction sites offer something like this, if for no other reason than not feeling so bad when you don’t win that iPad for $200 dollars off.

Is Your Job Killing You? [Infographic]

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Sometimes it feels like the more money you make the more stressful your job becomes, even after you graduated from the best online college in the country. The new infographic by Human Resources MBA may surprise you. First of all, it’s true, your job may be killing you. Secondly, the top ten most stressful jobs are not what we all would expect. I thought for sure there would be a surgeon, and an attorney, and some kind of construction worker listed – instead, most high stress jobs are in media, big business, and real estate. So how many people are dying a year from being overworked? And how can we get the worker to relax, and the employer to take it easy?

The Power Of Infographics

Friday, December 16th, 2011

There is nothing I enjoy more than someone or something that just gets to the point. Infographics do just this. When I look at an infographic, I know that someone else took the time to do the research, and strain the results to give me a simple answer to life’s most interesting questions. I can look, learn, laugh, and share the morsel of greatness with my friends. I have always been a fan, and now I am seeing them pop up everywhere. I have put a list together of a few of my recent favorites, to help give you an idea of just what infographics can do for your business, cause, and general awesomeness. These babies could very well be the future of advertising, and for less than half the price.
