Bernardo Chua is someone that I have started to idolize when it comes to entrepreneurship. He has managed to create a brand that people cannot seem to get enough of. There are tons of people that are talking about OrganoGold and just how good this brand is. This is also because of the power of the marketing plan that Bernardo Chua has put forth.
I think that quality speaks and Bernardo Chua chose to use the best quality from the start. That would be the thing that would make his brand stand out. Chua always knew that it would be important to reach a global audience. I can tell that he was thinking big when he decided to put this OrganoGold plan into motion. He could have used traditional forms of advertising and spent millions of dollars, but he didn’t have to. It would be rather easy for him to thrive through network marketing. There was a good chance that people would sing the praises of this coffee and spread the word. Chua believed in his brand that much.
I think that he was making a good decision to build his brand up. He would market to American audiences. He would also build his network in Canada. Chua would win awards for his efforts and continue to build the OrganoGold brand. It is more than coffee right now. It is true that coffee is still the core of the product line, but I have been able to buy OrganoGold tea and skin care products. I think that this was an interesting turn for the brand, but this proves that Bernardo Chua has the power to market well.
I am sure that there is not another brand around that has transitioned from coffee and tea to skin care products and toothpaste. In my opinion this shows some serious ambition from Bernardo Chua. He is the type of guy that has managed to build a brand that you can use for many different aspects of your life. The surprising thing is that he continues to research new ways to improve his products. Be sure to follow Bernardo on Facebook, as well his Twitter where he goes by the name Bernie.

Jim Hunt and VTA Publications have put together a system offering financial success to everyone. It is a well written financial lesson that promises all the benefits of success that are now within the grasp of everyone. Hunt claims to have access to systems that work to produce results.
It is easy to disregard such claims, but many people have learned the secrets to making fortunes in the financial world. George Soros was able to make more that $1 billion in a single investment. Soros respected due to his success writes books on financial and economic matters and lectures on these subjects around the world. He and Jim Hunt may be on the same page, and that page is well worth reading. We know that Soros has reduced his American stock positions by seeing the mandatory SEC filings, required by law, which are reported every fiscal quarter. Hunt and VTA Publications are offering their positions and suggestions in real time.
All an investor can ask for is an edge. Those having MBAs have that edge, and people working for a major investment company with its research facility are provided that edge. The average investor needs all the help he can get. Reading and studying investment strategies are a great help but having a mentor like a George Soros or a Jim Hunt represents a great advantage, an edge. Check out the VTA Publications website; it could be your edge.

If there was ever a time when I can say that marketing a brand online was being done with a high level of efficiency, I would say that it would be right now. I know, without the shadow of a doubt, that Doe Deere is someone that is just waiting for the opportunity to blow her potential customers away with more clever marketing for the Lime Crime brand. She has done this with the Twitter account. She has done this with Instagram. She has a passion for staying connecting with fans of the brand through social media and it shows.
If my memory serves me correctly, the Internet is where I learned of Doe Deere and her over-the-top line of Lime Crime cosmetics. I was actually hanging out at a Halloween party, and I ran into some girls that I knew that were rocking a cool bright shade of lipstick. They said that it was called “squash” and that it was part of this Unicorn makeup collection. It was dazzling to me. It was so incredible that I had to ask where they acquired this brand. That is when they told me about Lime Crime. I Googled the brand right away on my smartphone. I discovered Doe Deere online, and I instantly wanted to know more about her.
I don’t know if everyone discovers Doe Deere in this type of fashion, but I was really thrilled to see what she was doing with the brand. It made me realize that she was a person that believed in connecting with the young generation. She seems to have this type of style that will be embraced by the youth just because she is heavily linked to an alternative style. Doe Deere has a bizarre clothing style, and she is a lightning rod for controversy online. These two elements make people swarm the Internet for photos and articles on the mystery of Doe Deere.
I believe it is cool to have someone like Doe Deere in place to market cosmetics. She makes her world of shopping for makeup fun again. At one point I was rarely wearing lipstick. I was occasionally borrowing lipstick from friends because I didn’t like anything out there enough to commit to buying lipstick. Doe Deere and her marketing magic has changed all of that. She made me see cosmetics as fun again, and I thank her for that.
