The Biggest and Almost Continuous Sale!!!!

Look - I may not be the most brilliant business person on the planet - because in all honesty I am an artist - but when any store or service is offering a 30% discount or a 25 % discount or even a 35% discount and I like the products I know that it makes a lot of sense to go to that store or website in this case and see what they have that I might invest in either for myself - to give as a gift or to sell at another time: The Bebirian Art Collection go to the collection catalogs to get the deal!… 12-1-2012A by Walter Paul Bebirian

What is Marketing?

In response to an article that I read in Forbes: "What is Marketing?" I wrote this: What I would like to do in order to answer your question in your article properly – “What is Marketing” and this answer applies to each and every individual on the planet – is to look at the root of the word Marketing – Market – or to Market – Now back in 1976 – when I took my very first trip on a bus to a faraway country called Pennsylvania – specifically to Amish Country better referred to an area in Pennsylvania called Lancaster which actually encompasses a lot – I somehow arrived without knowing where I was going to stay or anything about this unusual area – I was introduced to a farmer’s market – I had never seen or heard of such a thing in New York City (the farmer’s markets held at different locations in the streets of Manhattan did not exist back then) but when I think back to that experience and then compare it with a grocery store – there are similarities but differences as well – yes there was food in both and perhaps even some of the same foods – but at the farmer’s market there were many different booths manned by the different farmers’ staff members who brought their fruits – vegetables and meat products to this market and sold them to customers who came to this market to buy what was provided by the different staff members of the farms at each different booth – but at the grocery store (and this is pretty much the same) what was being sold all came from different companies selling their different processed foods and the vegetables and fruits came from the warehouses of the grocery store chain – each carrying food from many different farmers – What I am getting at – today markets exists wherever individuals live breathe – work – socialize – who did I hit a nerve? yes socialize – that means at your parties on your social networks – wherever you bring your smart phone and on your way to anywhere – and so look to at least let people know about whatever I have to sell or provide a client with wherever they are – and thus I developed my “Doubling Project”: "Doubling Project" So did I answer the question – “What is Marketing?” – Well to me it is seeing that there is a market or a way to set up a booth wherever individuals are or wherever I will come in contact with them – and at that point where I come across them – wherever that is – I introduce them to the products and services that I have to offer them – just like the staff of the different farmers at the different booths at the farmer’s market back in Lancaster, Pennsylvania – at with that introduction I provide them with the information and means to purchase the services and products that I have to offer as well - 12-9-2012B by Walter Paul Bebirian

My Marketing Program So Far

while the Facebook and other social media platforms are extremely helpful in getting the word out to many of the people who are on the Internet and who do use the tools there as well as twitter - there is one overall strategy that I started off line way back on 1976 and which became a full time focus for me with my marketing in 1992 and that is my "Doubling Project" which is basically giving out my business cards to many people throughout New York City or wherever in the world I happen to be - here is a link to the official description of this project: The way that I see it is that years ago farmers (they were the main business people at one time in this country and I suppose the world) would spend all year or most of the year growing their crops and as these crops ripened and were able to be harvested the farmers would bring their harvested crops to the farmer's market where the consumers or general public could go to purchase things that they needed that were produced by the farmers - as people produced other products that people needed like soaps and pots and pans and candles and other goods - the markets expanded and well then you had the general stores to buy things in - now wherever I go and hand a person one of my business cards - I am creating a market in the sense that I am presenting the goods and services that I am offering to them which they can either access when they return to their homes and offices or even access and in today's world right their wherever I have met them on the smart phone - for example - originally my business card had this picture on it for my photography business: and their was no internet for me and my business back then in 1992 - but I did have an address and phone number on the back of the business card - people called when they needed a photographer and since I gave out over 1.5 million of those cards there are still people calling from that card that many of them have kept and it reminds them that I am in business and how to reach me - a later development of that card had the website address on it to remind me of the "Doubling Project" and what was my responsibility in carrying it out: The next card which I still use and which is a little different since I wanted to emphasize that I had art on the Internet for people to see - enjoy - become inspired by and motivated by as well as for people to purchase and that I still a offering photography services - the picture on this card looks like this: well without the flashing illuminated order that is for the website to encourage people to click on that image and se the art at: next in addition to continuously adding new images to my art galleries just about every day I began to also add different business opportunities on a page of my main website: that I had signed up for to help market my business on the Internet - all the while continuing on with my "Doubling Project" and these opportunities are basically different websites that both are social media marketing sites or mailing sites that a person can start out for free with and earn some money at the same time as marketing their own business and then they can upgrade if the see the value in increasing their investment in these sites to help them further market their business to other people - After that I wanted to improve further so I created a Facebook fan page for my art and I am continually learning how to market with the tools and ideas that I am learning from other people: and in addition I have created what I call my Marketing Tools page on the main web site where I add different affiliate sites that might be of help to some people in marketing their business as well as community Facebook Fan Pages where different people can join and perhaps both learn as well as share information that they have about the different topics of these fan pages as well as meet new people who they might not otherwise meet within their own circle of friends: well I guess this is about enough as anyone might want to be introduced to at this point in time although there are many other projects that I have begun and am working on at this point in time I would suggest that each of the different ways of marketing that a person works at that they do it a little at a time and perhaps focus on one or two main avenues at a time until you get the basics down and feel confident enough to take on another one or two different projects over timoh before I forget you may - if you were to meet me somewhere - also get a business card that looks like this: that is directing you to this site: which is my project for the future! 8-19-2012ABCDEFGHIJ by Walter Paul Bebirian

Infinite Generation

In Infinite Generation - there is no desire to seek out the answer to the question sought after by many as to what is death about - there is only the definite decision to focus only on the here and now as well as to the looking forward to seeing as much of the development of the Infinite Process that is taking place in this reality unfold - as possible. There is as well a clear understanding that there are no ends to sentences - no periods to end a thought or anything anywhere that is a final answer so to speak - but that no matter how long or how abrupt any thought seems to have been intended - that the processing of any question or thought or idea or any line of thinking is - it will continue on in the unconscious indefinitely and continue on as well to be developed along this path - 6-14-2012BABCDEFGHIJKL by Walter Paul Bebirian
