We found an excellent example of an interactive ad on the Internet for such a common product as tomato ketchup is. The ad banner entices visitors to grow up their own virtual tomato plant and win various prizes if they succeed.
The ad is in fact an online game that requires users to login regularly to take care of their virtual tomato plant.
The users have to:
-> water and fertilize their plant regularly. Too little or too much is bad.
-> show their affection playing music and writing nice words to the their tomato plant.
-> provide magic grow codes that can be found on Beauvais tomato ketchup bottles. (Of course the users have to buy the bottles to get the code).
-> harvest the big and nice tomatoes at right time to allow other tomatoes to grow up.

The winners are those who harvest most tomatoes per week, month and a whole promotion period. The participants can win a prize up to 700EUR.

The tomato game is an excellent simple tool how to increase awareness of the product in a funny natural way. The same concept can be applied to many other common products that can be found on the shells of supermarkets around the world.]]>
ENERGY , Integrated solar roof tiles http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/3073 24 Sep 2009 moderator energy http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/3073 USA based SRS Energy is one of the first companies that develops and manufactures solar roofing tiles designed to seamlessly integrate with traditional roofing products. The result is a stylish and simple solution for sustainable residential and commercial roofing that is undistinguishable from classical clay tiles.

The dark blue tiles, manufactured by SRS Energy, are jointly branded and distributed by US Tile and specifically designed to be compatible with the clay roof tiles manufactured by US Tile. Customers who purchase clay tiles will be given the option to upgrade a section of their roof to Solé Power Tiles. When installed, the system can offset a large proportion of a homeowner's energy costs—not to mention cleaning their carbon conscience. The system makes it easy for consumers to make a green choice, without having to settle for an unattractive product. There will be more tile styles and colours available making the product even more appealing to customers.

The tiles are made from a high-performance polymer that is lightweight, unbreakable and recyclable. Flexible solar technology by United Solar Ovonic is embedded inside each tile, allowing them to function independently of each other. The system performance is monitored remotely by SRS Energy and US Tile.

Sole Power Tile claims that they produce more energy that other building integrated photovoltaic solutions for the same system capacity. Higher rate of return, which in California ranges between 5-10 percent makes the monthly cost of an upgrade cheaper than monthly savings. The ROI calculations are based on pricing and eco incentives in California, US. So far more technical data like efficiency of electrical generation, real output in watt per tile for given light conditions are not available. This information would help to confirm ROI calculated for California as well as to estimate ROI for other countries as well.
It will be only matter of time when this kind of products will be available world wide allowing many small entrepreneurs and dealers be a part of the new business opportunity.]]>

CONSULTING SERVICES , Global warming brings new business ideas and opportunities http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/2168 18 Jan 2007 moderator consulting services http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/2168
The ever accelerating melting of glaciers proves that the Earth is gradually warming. There are many causes of the global warming like CO2 concentration, sun activity, Earth’s tilt, wobble and orbital eccentricity. The CO2 in the atmosphere is helping to trap the heat. There are at least two positive feedback loops that accelerate Earth temperature and CO2 rising and glacier melting.

1) Melting glaciers expose the dark Earth surface that absorbs more heat from the sunlight than white glaciers.
2) Frozen glaciers contain CO2 that gets released into the ocean and atmosphere when the glaciers melt.

Shall we blame natural fluctuations or human activity? Probably nobody will know the correct answer. One thing is sure; the human activity produces CO2 as well that helps to speed up the imbalances. The extent to which human activity influences CO2 changes with time because of the two loops. The loops are increasingly intensifying thus relatively decreasing the influence of human activity. It might mean that there is not much the humans can do to stop the global warming at this phase.

The global warming consequence was so far very kind to us humans because the ocean currents still work as they always used to. The currents bring rain or snow where otherwise drought would be. They cool down tropical areas and bring the heat for example to North America and North Europe. Everything is connected in the nature. The vast amount of fresh water discharged into the ocean as the ice melts threatens to shut down the Gulf Stream, which for example protects Northern Europe from a freezing climate like that of Labrador. The Gulf Steam is a part of the Ocean Conveyor Belt that works as a huge Earth thermostat. Shutting down the Gulf Streams changes Ocean Conveyor Belt and consequently global climate. The Gulf Stream has slowed and shut down several times in the past. Fossil evidence demonstrates that Earth’s climate can shift gears within a decade, establishing new and different patterns that can persist for decades to centuries. These climate shifts don’t have global effects but can generate a counterintuitive scenario: Even as the Earth as a whole continues to warm gradually, large regions may experience a precipitous and disruptive shift into colder climates. Last studies of the Gulf Stream already showed that the current is slowing down at increasing speed.

All human endeavour hinges on the vicissitudes of climate. Thus, the potential for abrupt climate change should prompt businesses to re-examine possible impacts on many climate-affected sectors. They include: agriculture; water resources; energy resources; forest and timber management; fisheries; coastal land management; transportation; insurance; recreation and tourism; disaster relief; and public health (associated with climate-related, vector-borne diseases such as malaria and cholera).

The climate changes are happening and many business people are already facing them. With rising temperatures the changes will accelerate and become more extreme. Due to a sheer complexity of the climate modelling it is not clear what regions will be effected and how. This kind of uncertainty makes future business planning complicated. It is going to be challenging and difficult but any difficulties always bring new opportunities. New consulting companies specialising in business risk forecast and management related to changing climate conditions are going to emerge. Those operating globally will reconsider the supply chain management and shifting customers’ demands. Those operating locally will have to find new suppliers and perhaps completely change the business. In some regions services or agriculture activities will not be appropriate anymore because of local climate change. In other regions huge demand for new services will have to be satisfied.

Those with vision, who foresee the coming changes, will have competitive advantage. Those still doubting, hesitating and waiting when things happen, would have to be satisfied with what is left.]]>
TELECOM , Coin operated mobile phone charger vending machines http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/1991 8 May 2006 oredafo telecom http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/1991

ENERGY , Visually appealing Vertical Axis Wind Turbine http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/2146 8 Dec 2006 moderator energy http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/2146 small-scale windmill as a low-cost source of sustainable energy.

There is yet another player on this field called Quiet Revolution Ltd. They have revolutionized the windmill with their new quiet wind turbine, the QR5. It is one of the most visually appealing wind turbines available on the market, its small scale allows it to fit seamlessly into a urban environment, providing a renewable energy resource in places where space constraints previously made it impossible to hook up green power systems.

The elegant helical (twisted) Vertical Axis Wind Turbine design ensures a robust performance in the urban environment, where wind speeds are lower and wind directions change frequently. The triple-helix design is responsible for being more hushed than noisy conventional wind turbines, because the tip speed is slower, which in turn allows it to be situated closer to buildings and on towers.

At five metres high and three metres in diameter, it is compact and easy to integrate, and with just one moving part, maintenance can be limited to an annual inspection. Two other models, the QR2.5 (2.5m x 2.5m) and the QR12 (12m x 6m), are under construction as well.

Pre-launch clients include architects, developers and local councils, all of whom share a common vision of renewable energy with sophisticated design.
Visit the Quiet Revolution Ltd website to see the video footage of the running QR5.

Illustrative Payback Period:
Average Wind Speed 5.8m/s
Annual energy generated (kWh) 10,000
Price for energy offset 8p
Price for ROCs 4.7p
Inflation in energy prices 5%
Annual value generated £1,827
Wind turbine price incl. installation £30,000
Payback period 15 years

The QR5 windmill has some advantages over Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine design as far as concerns installations in metropolitan areas because it is more quiet and less sensitive to fast and frequently changing wind directions. Only one moving part makes the QR5 also more reliable requiring less maintenance.

The disadvantage is that Vertical Axis Wind Turbines are less efficient than Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine thus extracting less energy from the wind.
Perhaps the biggest drawback of QR5 is the long payback period, which is probably longer than QR5’s actual lifespan. The warranty is just 2 years.


Quiet Revolution Ltd has as well another trick up their sleeve in the form of their ground-breaking display turbines. These turbines rely on the theory of persistence of vision – our brains ability to fuse many fast, static images into a single moving image.
The wind turbine blade has embedded within an array of light-emitting elements – high powered LEDs for example. These are coupled to an embedded processor, which controls these multicoloured LEDs.

These wind turbines can display advertisements and generate additional revenue by selling the display space to advertisers. This could result in a much shorter financial payback for the turbines, which could speed their deployment.
The final optical effect and display advertisement quality will depend on the turbine rotation speed and thus on the actual wind speed.

The Quiet Revolution wind turbines present opportunities for distributors and resellers, as well as for installation and maintenance providers.]]>

Our plan is simple and straightforward; in fact, what we are doing has been done since before recorded human history all over the world and with great success.
We will purchase a fishing vessel, equip it appropriately, crew it with experienced people, and use it to harvest Yellowfin Tunafish - one of the most valuable non-restricted fish in the worlds oceans.

- Company Overview

We are a single small company in a large specialized market. We deal only in the harvesting and bulk sale of fresh high-grade Yellowfin tuna. Specifically for sushi, sashimi, and other raw dishes, and primarily for export to Japan.


- Current Situation Overview

Our intention is to purchase a fishing vessel and outfit it for harvesting yellowfin tuna, as we have done in the past. We made excellent money for years, but due to circumstances moved on to other lines of work; both of which were hobbled by the recession. We feel it would be a good time to get back on the water, since fresh yellowfin is traded on the global market, and is a globally regulated food source, we feel its as recession-proof as any line of work can be.
Our combined available assets cannot remotely cover the amount of funding we need to start a fishing company; we have no equity to secure an investment other than the equity presented by the fishing vessel we will buy with the invested money.
We do not have bad credit, large or outstanding debts, or any other issues which would deter a logical investor. We didnt lose all our money, we never had any to start with.

Currently the business owners are prepared to immediately drop any other activities, and devote all of their time to forming, managing, and operating this business.

Our plans are made and ready to be put into motion immediately upon reciept of funding. Company can be up and running in less than 2 months, and showing profit in 3 months.



Market


- Products
Yellowfin tuna are our main product, and make up the vast majority of our income.
By-Catch fish are also caught in small numbers, but usually sell for less, making up less than 10% of the gross profit for an average trip.

- Strategy
Fresh fish sell for considerably more money. By having a fast rotation fish are usually brought aboard live, and thus, as fresh as possible.
We keep the fish fresh (not frozen) using an ice packing method that requires constant attention, but which yeilds the best product.
Yellowfin will be sold at a premium price directly to wholesale brokers who will primarily fly the fish to Japan via cargo jet. The brokers do not negotiate price, or quantity; they buy every fish off of the boat, every time, since they make money through moving high volume rather than on a per-deal basis. Customers and sales are guaranteed.

- Market Analysis
A-1 Grade Yellowfin Tuna sell for around 4-7 dollars a pound.
By-Catch fish sell for a varied amount, usually less than 2 dollars a pound.
Demand for Yellowfin has risen since the 1970's and is now at 96% of the sustainable rate of harvest capacity - meaning there are 4% more tuna available this year than last year. This is because the Yellowfin tuna breed faster and fill gaps left in the ecosystem by overfishing other species of fish, ie. they have less competition.
Yellowfin prices are expected to rise in the future for various reasons.
One is the declining population of bluefin tuna, a heavily depleted stock and the recent Deepwater Horizon spill may put bluefin on the endangered species list. Yellowfin will not face that problem due to thier highly migratory nature, short lifespan and rapid, proliferant breeding cycle; and will be the next choice after bluefin for those customers.

- Competition
A kind of deep sea net fishing called purse seining is the only competition for longline fishing, however there are so many ecological drawbacks to netting, such as indiscriminately catching and killing porpoise, sea turtles, juvenile tuna, and all the other by-catch, including many unwanted fish; these are all killed by purse seining. Longline fishing only kills the target species, and then only the larger specimens of them; juvenile tuna, aquatic mammals, turtles, and most unwanted by-catch, do not ever get hooked in the first place due to circle hooks, and have a reasonable chance of survival even if they do since they are dealt with on a fish by fish basis. In my opinion, the opinion of a commercial tuna fisherman, purse seining is immoral and irresponsible. It would not be surprising to see purse seining banned by most nations in the coming years, which would further improve the profit margin for longline fishing by increasing both the number of large tuna in the water, and the price of tuna in general.

There are thousands of longline boats operating in the worlds oceans, but we consider them industry peers rather than competition, since the resource we are harvesting is essentially infinite. Basically, as longliners, we are all in the same boat - even though we are all in different boats...



Management

George Wettlaufer
Michael English

- Team Structure

George Wettlaufer - Captain
Michael English - Dockside Administration
Leonard Satterfeild - First Mate, Butcher, Ice Tech.
Jason Davis - Navigator, Cook, Crew Relief

All these men have real experience, and can do each others jobs, as well as thier own.

- Team Dynamics
We know that our experience and hard work are crucial to success in this industry; and we will oversee all aspects of the operation, on land and at sea.
We have worked together extensively, in various capacities, including longlining, hurricane relief, tree removal, commercial sub-contracting, and general construction, and have never experienced any conflicts of personality or any other issues that could be disruptive to smooth business operation. We have known each other for decades.


Operations

- Facilities

The facilities required are commonplace fixtures at any commercial dock; sich things as ice, bait, rigging, food, and fuel, are always available. The preference would be places where the economy is low, to save on costs while at dock.

- Operational Dynamics

The whole operation can be summed up in one paragraph. Acquire a boat, load it with supplies, and sail it into the ocean. When favorable conditions are present the crew sets out 10-40 miles of line with 1-3 thousand baited hooks descending from it. Then the line is reeled in, fish are brought into the boat, butchered, and packed in ice. When the boat is full it sails back to port. A wholesale broker meets the boat at port with a truck full of ice. The crew unloads the fish one at a time, they are weighed, graded for freshness and quality, and put on the truck. When the fish are all loaded into the truck, the broker cuts a check for the fish at the current market value. The money is divided accordingly. End of trip. Rinse and repeat.

Yellowfin are one of the most valuable and "sustainable" fish in the planets oceans. Their price per pound is second only to bluefin tuna and shark fins on the world market (both of which are restricted globally). They mature to 300+ lbs, yet they have only a 7 year life span. They eat constantly, and will eat about anything. Tuna never stop swimming, so they are mostly muscle by weight, and grow very fast. They lay a massive amount of eggs as well; 1-4 million eggs up to 40 times a year after they are 3 years old. The estimated sustainable load on the global yellowfin population is at 96%, so the yellowfin market should remain profitable well into the future with continued global management.
Because longlining utilizes specially made individual hooks, called circle hooks, it is porpoise safe, it is safe for other aquatic mammals, safe for the sea floor environment and coral reefs. Any accidental catches are easily and safely released using a hook removal tool and other specialized equipment. Also, the hooks used are made of metal that corrodes quickly and safely in salt water, giving a good chance for survival to escaped or cut loose fish. There is no more compassionate or ecologically sound means of harvesting tuna than the use of topwater longline rigging, and that is all we do.

Insurance does not exist in any useful capacity for a tuna boat, its just not cost effective to insure a 70 foot steel-hull boat against sinking, since they hardly can do so. All crew members are considered sub-contractors, and as such are required to deal wit h their own insurance needs, retirement plans, and taxes. If the boat breaks the owners fix it out of pocket.

The boat owners do not take the losses of a small catch the way the crew does, since the fuel and supplies are taken from the crew shares; so even a technical loss still profits the owners.

The only things that could damage the tuna industry at this point would be a tuna disease of epic proportions, or a sudden change in human population. Otherwise, tuna will breed like crazy and continue to be a super-healthy food source and an ecologically safe, profitable business.



- Financial Overview

All of the following figures are based off of industry averages when available, our own experience, lots of research to update ourselves, and the experience of other tuna fishermen whom we personally know. Figures are based on a standard sized boat, like what is in our price range and is the preference for economical commercial longline fishing. Smaller boats are dangerous, cramped, and unstable. Larger boats are fuel hogs, hard to find docking for, expensive to maintain, and less useful in the role of longliner. Figures are also based on not working the boat to full capacity, since a flat out hard run is not sustainable for many months at a time, and delays inevitably happen.
These are all cautious estimates.

(Numbers in brackets indicate the amount of variance for each figure)

100[80-200] fish in a trip. Average fish size 100[50-350] lbs.

14[5-20] Days per trip, 2[1-4] trips per month, 20[20-30] trips annually.

1 Set per day. 1200[800-3000] hooks per 20[15-40] mile set.

Average 10[0-100] fish in 1 set. Not including by-catch.

Average price of Yellowfin 4.50[3.25-7.50] per lb. By-catch 2.00[.50-8.00] lb.

Gas expenses around 3.00 gal. About 4000 per long trip.

Average trip = 50,000 gross profit


Per trip profit and expense breakdown:

Crew share costs - paid from crew shares at end of each trip:
Food and crew upkeep = 1500
Tackle = 200
Ice = 500
Bait = 800
Fuel = 4,000
Administration expenses: 1500

Total of standard crew expenses:

What is the product? Our company sells gourmet foods (Steak, fish, chicken, lobster, crab cakes, etc.) All but one of our beef products are hand cut USDA choice to USDA upper choice and we are well below market price for dry ice shipped gourmet foods. All products are covered by a 100% money back guarantee. We are the first home-based dry ice gourmet food business that ships directly to the customers’ door.

What is the mission of the company? The company is moving into new markets similar to that of companies such as Omaha Steaks. The company sold on a local basis to supermarkets, restaurants, and private individuals, but is now moving to the national market.

How old is the company? The new national marketing end of the business began in late 2006, however, the food processing end of the business has been around for over 25 years. Both the marketing and food distributing sections of the business are debt free.

Is the company MLM? Yes….the company decided to go to an individual distributor marketing system as apposed to going with conventional marketing and advertisement methods. This method is not only cheaper for the business, but also offers more longevity than hit and miss advertisement. It also provides the funding for excellent compensation for distributors without putting any financial strain on the business.

How does this company differ from others? Well…first…we offer a product that everyone uses and wants. Do you know anyone that doesn't eat either steak, fish, or chicken? Probably not so that gives us a product that is at least as in demand as any other and a product that probably offers more longevity than any other. You may not use light bulbs, vitamins, etc. each month but you will eat food and you obviously buy and eat it consistently.

What is the compensation plan? There are actually three ways you can make money as a distributor.
1) you can just sell the food if you like.
2) you can introduce other people to the distributing business themselves (This offers the most up front and immediate pay).
3) if you do sign on other distributors, you will make a percentage of any food they buy or sell. You will also make money from any people that will become distributors under them.

There is no limit to how many people can be under you from either direct or indirect association. One big point to mention is that there is no breakage. In other words….say you got three distributors under yourself and that’s all you ever got. One or more of those distributors got 10 or 20 or 30 distributors under them…..all of those people will always be under you.

So I have to sell food to people? No…you, of course, can if you wish but that is not required to make money. Some people just choose to get other distributors and that will bring you money both in the short and long term.

Don't most of these businesses collapse eventually? Most all but the businesses with good products eventually do. There is no chance for collapse with this business. Even for those distributors who don't wish to sell food, each distributor is required to buy $50 of food each month. So….each distributor is his/her own customer. This is not a burden for the distributor, however, since it only takes a small amount of business growth to make your monthly food free. The compensation plan is self-funding.

What does it cost to get into the business? If you just want to sell the food it costs $49. If you want to be a distributor that is allowed to get other distributors for yourself then the cost is $600.

$600 seems like a lot. Why is the cost so high? Well….first of all due to the fact that adequate compensation is given to each distributor. Again….this business is not for everyone. Someone who is not serious about building the business is not going to pay $600 and that is the way the company wants it. We only want people who are serious about building up the business both for the company and themselves.

How much does the business make out of the $600 cost to join? The business takes only $40 of the $600. That is for administrative purposes, which is more than fair. Just to show how fair, the company pays for your web site, which will handle all of your sales, sign ups, and give you all the reports that you will need. It will actually even show you who is underneath you at any given time.

How long will it take me to make money and how much will I make? You will need to take a look at the total and detailed compensation plan in order to get a working idea of that. Again...this is no get rich quick scheme. That being said....with some time and work you can easily get the business to a sustainable triple digit income. Something that is also important to mention is that when you bring on only three other distributors, you are now even in the business. You have made back your $600. Most people are able to do this easily in just one month. It takes very little time or work to get into profit with the business.

If I want to get other distributors underneath me, do I have to present the business to them? No. You will receive more than enough training to do that but if you don't feel comfortable then we have people to do that for you. All you have to do is mention that you are involved in a business that they may be interested in. There is no pressure for them or you.

OK….if you had to say…what do you think is the best part of the business? Well….obviously….all of it is good. The product…the compensation…the longevity potential… everything. However, the one thing that is great right now that wont stay that way is that there are approximately only 3400 distributors in the company right now. Most all being located in only three states. Those on the ground floor are going to have the best potential and opportunity because all other people to come will be directly or indirectly below them to no limit. Most of the best distributor companies have close to or over 1 million distributors so you do the math.

Well….if I want to find out more…what do I do next? Just email me at DM2607@aol.com and I will send you all of the information you need to make a decision.

You can also call 1-212-990-7272 to listen to a prerecorded message about the business.

We will never be any pressure for you to become involved in the business. Again, we are only looking for individuals who are serious about becoming successful in a home based business.
Original:
This is no “GET RICH QUICK” scheme but an opportunity to get in on the ground floor level of a very good home based business. If you are looking for a legit home based business then you owe it to yourself to at least take a look at this business. No….it will not be for everyone, but for those who are very serious about building a real home based business that has probably the best product you could carry, then this may be for you. Let’s start with a short Q andA about the business so you can see up front what the business is all about.

What is the product? Our company sells gourmet foods (Steak, fish, chicken, lobster, crab cakes, etc.) All but one of our beef products are hand cut USDA choice to USDA upper choice and we are well below market price for dry ice shipped gourmet foods. All products are covered by a 100% money back guarantee. We are the first home based dry ice gourmet food business that ships directly to the customers door.

What is the mission of the company? The company is moving into new markets similar to that of companies such as Omaha Steaks. The company sold on a local basis to supermarkets, restaurants, and private individuals, but is now moving to the national market.

How old is the company? The new national marketing end of the business began in late 2006, however, the food processing end of the business has been around for over 25 years. Both the marketing and food distributing sections of the business are debt free.

Is the company MLM? Yes….the company decided to go to an individual distributor marketing system as apposed to going with conventional marketing and advertisement methods. This method is not only cheaper for the business, but also offers more longevity than hit and miss advertisement. It also provides the funding for excellent compensation for distributors without putting any financial strain on the business.

How does this company differ from others? Well…first…we offer a product that everyone uses and wants. Do you know anyone that doesn't eat either steak, fish, or chicken? Probably not so that gives us a product that is at least as in demand as any other and a product that probably offers more longevity than any other. You may not use light bulbs, vitamins, etc. each month but you will eat food and you obviously buy and eat it consistently.

In other words….say you got three distributors under yourself and that’s all you ever got. One or more of those distributors got 10 or 20 or 30 distributors under them…..all of those people will always be under you.

So I have to sell food to people? No…you, of course, can if you wish but that is not required to make money. Some people just choose to get other distributors and that will bring you money both in the short and long term.

Don't most of these businesses collapse eventually? Most all but the businesses with good products eventually do. There is no chance for collapse with this business.

Each rider has a set of pedals, yet it is as easily operated by one person as by two. One person does the steering by operating hand levers to independently engage or disengage each wheel, allowing the Waterpillar to turn on a dime. With 2,2m diameterwheels and a width of 2,5m, the Waterpillar is stable in almost any aquatic environment.
