Throughout the years much has been written about spaces, the gaps between. If I am here and you are there, what is between us. If that is there and this is here, what may bring them together. There is so very much which may be done with that to which resides between. Appears at times to be our primary purpose.

Much of the time concerns of what, why & how dominate. What is between, why is it, how do we remove or replace, the contemplation’s for these from those with purpose. To fill or replace that which resides is our role.

The Internet being so new and vibrant is the perfect  subject, beginning as a haven for holistic communication to what it is today. Wherever communication or a medium for exchange is present, it is certain that commerce will appear. The initial intent may have been to improved upon the connection between the many with, to those who want. But spaces need to be filled as our nature and history exhibit, for this is where opportunity resides.

The space between Seller &  Buyer may be expanding, if not how could so much within materialize. Connectors to which for a fee offer (with uncertainty) to nudge a seller in proximity of a buyer. Through limitless effort termed as marketing, advertising, lead generation, targeting and alike, this ever expanding space formed it’s barrier with a toll to pass. Now not many upon the Internet may see it in this way, be it not the 1st. time by the masses we have been so conditioned.

Now imagine the Internet as it is and a way around to it’s side. An alternative connection to every buyer and relevant seller, absent the wall, net or toll to pass. Connection as are under construction as we speak, a short path with little space for the purposeful to meet.

What is a destination, is it where we intend to arrive? Not just for travel, a destination for many is the desired end result. Examining this behavior in the products we seek, there are several roles:

(1) The Traveler – Conducts oneself more as a tourist, rewarded by the journey. The destination could be any along the way.

(2) The Commuter – Focused solely upon arrival at the destination. End point remains the goal.

In commerce,  (1) is a shopper, (2) is a buyer. Daily, there are a healthy amount of about the web, (1) “the traveler” is by far the most highly sought. Why would this be,  wouldn’t the “commuter” be of most interest? Well that depends upon your point of view, are you selling product or selling advertising? Not hard to realize upon the Internet, the prior promotes “buying”, the latter promotes “shopping”. If shoppers convert to buyers rapidly, less advertising is required. As a (remedial) result spending for will decrease, increased margins (for sellers) are the result.  Decreased margins for advertising also is the result.

So is devoting more time and effort to advertising the most efficient path for sellers to follow? Not really, in fact efforts as will definitively increase costs equal to the amount of realized gain. If this is what one prefer’s to do, we wish you well. If as an effort one would prefer to gain additional profit, than a more direct alignment to the consumer should be sought.

Sellers everywhere have but a brief moment remaining. If the “destination” does not become more-so of favor, everyone in one capacity or another will (without benefits) end up working for Google, Facebook and alike.

Noticed how systemic efforts often forget their purpose, so many examples to this. One might consider federal tax deductions of the many.  Originally, it’s most practical purpose was to award taxpayers for minimizing cost to the federal government. A way of saying “OK you saved the fed money by your actions” we’ll extend to you a discount on your membership. But of course interests beyond over many years removed this purpose. This and so very many others by example resemble the long-term aches and pains of our unionization. It all begins well, then over time through varied or less insightful guidance becomes something much less.

For our purpose, we look at commerce. What it was, what it is and what it may become, the latter has room for a more idealistic view. So in looking at the past,present and future of commerce in various capacities for over 20 years, a simple base theory remains constant and (in my opinion) will forever maintain its dominance. Commerce (for all practical purposes) is an exercise where anything of a perceived value is exchanged for anything of  perceived equal value. <= Notice the period upon the end of the sentence.

While commerce now may have become (as taxes) something else, it’s base theory is so dominant that when reintroduced becomes an undeniable force. This is the foundation of our venture, an undeniable purpose. The direct alignment of unadulterated commerce. The timing and infrastructure for (at this time of writing) is unprecedented.

A rare opportunity to Invest and to receive 100% exclusion on your capital gain. Ends Jan. 1, 2012.

http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=230307,00.html#2011

Sect. 2011: Temporary exclusion of 100% of gain on certain small business stock

Expanding on the provisions of Internal Revenue Code Section 1202 and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Small Business Jobs Act provides an added incentive for investment in qualified small businesses. Under this Act, investors in qualified small business stock can exclude up to 100% of the capital gain upon sale of the stock.

Under the SBJA, to claim the capital gain exclusion, the qualified small business stock must be:

  1. Acquired after September 27, 2010, and before Jan 1, 2011, and
  2. Held for at least five years before the stock is sold.

However, Section 760, Temporary Exclusion of 100% of Gain on Certain Small Business Stock, of the Tax Relief Act of 2010, extended the exclusion for qualified small business stock acquired before January 1, 2012.

Under current law, the earliest tax year for which this 100% capital gain exclusion can be claimed is 2015. Additional limitations, qualifications and requirements may apply. Capital Gains and Losses has information on reporting capital gains.

Keep About2Buy in mind as you advantage this superb opportunity.

Reports found 72% of us already feel like Big Brother is watching us when we get personalized recommendations on Facebook and other sites, and 56% of us say we feel “violated”. Another indicated that 89% of us haven’t bought anything on Facebook and that 44% of us aren’t interested in doing so. These are pretty damning figures for, supposedly, one of the hottest new industry trends.

Of course it would be foolhardy to not include a sort of reference to how popular someone may be, especially if you are host to. To know the future of pricing and promotion, is not so difficult to imagine. The old push market system that will certainly die a slow death, possesses such low conversion rates it’s hardly worth doing. Word of mouth and individual networks are yielding higher rates.

It may not be long before one’s popularity upon the web may dictate the final price. If you scored high for influence on Klout or other rating sites, your value to a product provider is and will continue to be immense. Such high rates of influence one day may get you a host of products for free, that’s right the most popular win again.

Now to say “begin to strengthen your network” is to become the understatement of what will be the century, please hear me loud and clear. “Strengthen and broaden the reach of your online networks”. I guarantee not only from our own perspective (and offerings), but many others who influence the web as well. You will pay higher prices in the future if you do not have a sizable network to share it with.
