With regards to why people would use the alternative currency - there are a number of reasons. Firstly to improve cash flow. If you are able to earn and spend Action Pounds on services that you would normally have to pay cash for, you are conserving cash.
Secondly, when you offer your goods or services to other members for Action Pounds it gives people access to your services and it enables them to 'try' you without much in the way of risk.
The complementary currency also enables you as a seller to charge full price for your goods and services versus getting into discount wars.
Complementary currencies are proven to have 3 times the value of national currency in the local community.
Thanks so much for the questions Mark - do you have any more?
“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others that have a larger vision. The immense fulfilment of the #friendships between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost impossible to describe.” I'm feeling it are you?
The #hashtags you see in Google+ posts are a useful way to discover conversations around a particular topic. In May we added related hashtags to the Google+ stream, turning any post into an opportunity to go deeper and explore what’s interesting to you.
Today we’re bringing a richer hashtag experience to Google Search. Here’s how it works:
- When you search on Google for a hashtag, say [#AmericasCup] or [#WaterfallWednesday], a set of relevant Google+ posts may appear to the right of regular results.
- You’ll only be able to see posts that have been shared publicly or shared with you.
- If you click on any of these posts you'll go to Google+, where you'll see the full set of relevant posts.
- You'll also see links to search for these hashtags on other social sites.
Today's update will be available (initially) to English language users in the US and Canada on google.com and google.ca. It’ll be live within the next few hours, so give it a go and let us know what you think.
I started out disillusioned by the way things were going in the World; and frustrated by the lack of ‘useful’ support and resources for small businesses, professionals, entrepreneurs and in particular – micropreneurs, I came up with the concept of CollaborAction.
Every business owner, professional or individual has got needs and wants in business and or their personal life. Individually, we don’t have all the answers or resources that we need, but what we do have could be exactly what someone else needs and vice versa - but how do we share and access those resources?
To solve the access problem and remove all the barriers of direct bartering (I give you this and you give me that) we've created The CollaborActions Network a one-stop-shop for advertising, promoting and accessing resources.
We've also developed a unique e-currency so that you can save your cash and still access the things you need, as well as promote your goods and services using The Business Barter Network.
