Jeffrey Charles Hamadey ?
AboutJeffrey, My name is Jeffrey Charles Hamadey. I was born in Yonkers New York a long time ago on a rainy April morning. My Mom came from Maine. My Pop from Yonkers. As a boy I lived in N.Y., Maine, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At 17 I joined the Air Force and flew as an In-flight Refueling Specialist and for 9 years traveled to most every country that was. Out of the Air Force and in to the Beauty Industry, which I retired from at 40 But I could no-more retire than I could fly unaided. So I started buying houses, fixing them up and renting them out. That led me to starting a property management and maintenance business that I put on the net, just a directory page, it's no longer up. But my mind clicked back on net marketing. That simple directory was making money, HUMM! So, now let's see, my first shot at the web was an internet business around 1992-3. I built the site with Adobe Page Mill (a precursor to GoLive) on a non power mac. The results were not good. I was getting the hits and a lot of page clicks, but, no sales and no response. In 1995 I took the site down vowing to return when I could figure out how to make a buck or two with a web site and not have to go through an excruciating learning curve to do it. Well, one day I noticed at the bottom of a web page the words Affiliate Program. Now, I come from a sales and marketing background in the beauty industry and I love a challenge. I clicked it and clicked my way back on the web.
The tact they used made an online business seem real do-able. The process was simplified but not simple. I would need to follow directions. But, with an all-in-one process complete with tools and guidance I Knew I would have the short learning curve I was looking for. Good things always take time and I was not interested in just a presence on the web for MY site. I wanted one that was profitable and achievable even for a beginner which is what I was. I tried to forgot all I thought I knew about anything to do with web sites. What I knew? Got me zip. So I guess I could say "I had nothing to lose." Although, I believe that with the right experience a person should achieve success quicker and smoother.
Yes, there are easier ways to build a Web site. However, online profits require more than just having a collection of Web pages. What I needed was the tools and a proven process that is required to build a long-term, profitable e-business. I had to do a load of web site looking to find anything worthwhile. All that looking proved an old adage to me "You can't judge a book by it's cover." or a site by it's bookmark. If you want to know more, click here
OK! I'll Have a look.
