What is GDPR and why should you care about it?

What is GDPR and why should you care about it?

First of all, let’s begin with a couple of general information on what GDPR really is. GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, is a new regulation, created by the EU so that people can have more control over the information that they are sharing and how their personal data is going to be used. All in all, it toughens the data protection legislation. A secondary purpose could also be the fact that the EU wishes for businesses to operate in a clearer environment. The GDPR will come into effect on 25th of May, 2018, in all EU member states.

When it comes to personal data, the European Commission defined personal data as being “any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, your posts on social networking websites, your medical information, or your computer’s IP address.” (europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-12-46_en.htm)

Clickbank Refunds and What You Can Do About It

Clickbank Refunds and What You Can Do About It

The internet is not the only place that refunds is an issue to a retailer. From the perspective of the internet merchant, customer satisfaction is of the highest priority. Because competition for customer loyalty is fierce, you know that keeping repeat customers coming back is the fastest and best way to long term financial success in sales. So offering an iron clan refund guarantee if the customer is not satisfied sends a message to the consumer that their happiness is top priority to you and that they can shop with you in confidence.

As customers, we like to know that there is a return or refund policy in place. We come to expect that when we get home with a product that it will be to our satisfaction of the store will stand behind the product and give us a refund no questions asked. Sadly even outside the internet, refund fraud happens all the time. People bring back stolen merchandise for refund to exchange what they took for money. There are so many scams like this that one solution the non-internet retail world has turned to is store credits so the money never leaves the store.

eBook Publication is a Breeze on Clickbank

eBook Publication is a Breeze on Clickbank

A lot has changed in the world because of the internet and nowhere is that more noticeable than the publishing industry. At one time the big publishing houses ruled the land like wizards from stone castles and any fledgling author who wanted to have a prayer to get a book published had to scale those walls. That meant a lot of talented writers and some excellent books never saw the light of day because the executives in those companies did not see a profit margin in it for them.

Just as in the music industry where music distributing has been completely overhauled by the internet, publishing has gone through a similar revolution. It’s a people’s revolution too because no longer is it the large publishing houses that tell the public what they can or cannot read. Now good authors can get their works out there simply by producing an ebook. And merchandising services like Clickbank have completed the cycle by making merchandising, marketing and distribution a breeze as well.
