Don’t Start Your Worksite Wellness Program

Employee health and wellbeing programs are all the rage today. New programs are being launched all the time. If you are thinking about launching a program, you do want to optimize your effort and maximize the benefits, right?

The workplace is often seen as a venue through which to reach adults for the purpose of health education and promotion. While employee health and wellbeing programs are often seen as offering many potential benefits, far too many organizations do not understand the intricacies and challenges associated with launching or implementing an effective and successful program.

The five mistakes listed below are the most commonly made mistakes when launching or implementing a worksite wellness program.

Mistake #1: No Initial Assessment

Far too many worksite wellness programs are launched or implemented without the benefit of a comprehensive, organization-wide needs assessment and subsequent data analysis having been conducted. How do you know what needs to be addressed by the programming and interventions if you have not done any type of assessment?

What You Should Do Differently

Build an appropriate foundation for your program by examining existing, available employee health, wellness and wellbeing data. Find out from senior leaders what they want. Learn from employees what their needs and interests might be. Identify existing resources you can tap into to support your programming and interventions.

Mistake #2: No Program Plan

Recent survey research revealed that only 16% of employers responding to the survey have an employee health and wellbeing plan in place.

What You Should Do Differently

Make a plan! Your program should have at least an annual operating plan to guide its operation so the program is not dependent upon any one person. What happens if that employee dies or leaves the organization? Having a plan in place will mean that your program be sustained, despite the changes. Your plan should be based upon the program’s purpose and that it contains goals, objectives, a program timeline and a budget.

Mistake #3: No Plan for Monitoring, Measuring or Evaluation

The latest survey research shows that less than 45% of the wellness programs in existence today monitor, measure, or evaluate what they do. What value is there in implementing a program if you don’t measure the results it achieves?

What You Should Do Differently

Identify the metrics associated with your program’s purpose, goals and objectives. Create an evaluation plan for how you will measure these metrics for each intervention, where appropriate, and for your program overall.

Mistake #4: Programming and Interventions Not Aligned

The typical employee population can generally be stratified into three different groups based on health risk level: No or low risk, Moderate risk and High risk. One size or type of health, wellness or wellbeing programming or intervention will not successfully address all three groups.

What You Should Do Differently

The programming or interventions you offer need to be aligned with the appropriate risk level. Programming and interventions should also be aligned with employee readiness to change. Employees will also participate more when they have a role in deciding on and in delivering the programming or interventions.

Mistake #5: Lacking Management Support

Successful employee health and wellbeing programs have the support and ideally the involvement and participation of all levels of management. Employees readily notice and take their participation cues from who does and does not actively support and participate in the program’s offerings.

What You Should Do Differently

Talk to all levels of management to learn why they are not supportive of employee health and wellness and then work to resolve or overcome their concerns. Provide the necessary resources to managers and leaders so they will have what they need to support the program with their direct reports.

Wellness is more than having broccoli in the cafeteria or having healthier items in the vending machines. Worksite wellness is about making the healthiest choice the easiest choice for employees.

The ‘God’ Program

By, or just explaining Life, the Universe and Everything with “God done it” is just substituting one mystery by appealing to an even bigger mystery. Just saying “God done it” has no actual explanatory power. On the other hand, explaining Life, the Universe and Everything as a computer software program, a ‘God’ Program as it were, can account for any and all anomalies. With software all things are possible – even explaining God.

According to one theist of my online acquaintance, if God knows every possible outcome and what He will do in each case, then there are no surprises… since a being who knows the entire flowchart doesn’t need to think or contemplate.

That raised an interesting scenario for me.

“If God knows every possible outcome and what He will do in each case… “

The phrase “what He will do” requires His actual thought, contemplation and decision-making. Otherwise one is just suggesting that God is a pre-programmed robot who will automatically respond and do A if B and C if not-B and so on and so on. Every possibility is in God’s ‘brain’ not because God deduced all possibilities through thought and contemplation and reason and deduction but because of this pre-programmed chip which is pre-programmed with all possible scenarios and all reactions to each and every possibility thus eliminating any requirement for thinking and deliberation and contemplation and decision-making. In other words, God is akin to that computer that finally defeated the human chess champion because the computer knew – in the same way my theist friend says God knows – every possible move the human could make and what to do to counter those moves. The computer had the chess flowchart mapped out. God is a computer! That’s really exactly what this theist was saying, or rather suggesting. The evidence…

“… since a being who knows the entire flowchart doesn’t need to think or contemplate” seems to verify my premise. The words of a theist verifies my premise!

If God knows every possible scenario – the outline of the master flowchart that incorporates all possible flowcharts – then there is no free will involved, just determinism. A computer software program is deterministic; there is no free will involved.

Let’s take a closer look!

God – assuming there actually is a God of course – may or may not know the absolute future, but one could argue that God must know the future because He set the absolutely deterministic laws, principles and relationships inherent in and of the physical sciences. Causality is absolute. If X today, then Y tomorrow. However, there’s one nasty can of worms, a loose cannon, in that deterministic scenario – free will.

It has been claimed that God knows the absolute future other than what those nasty free-willed humans (and many animals) can and will do. However, God does know every possible scenario that all of those free-willed humans (and animals) can or will do. God knows all of the free-willed human (and animal) flowcharts and thus can cater before-the-fact to deal with whatever scenario eventuates. That struck me as equivalent as the computer program that defeated the human chess champion. That computer software program knew the entire flowchart of every possible move the human chess champion could make and thus how to counteract each and every possible human move. So, God is akin to a computer, or better yet a computer software program.

At first I thought that equating God with a computer was brilliant but I was wrong about equating God with a computer. God isn’t the computer. God is just the actual computer software program that runs the virtual reality ‘game’ that we call Life, the Universe and Everything. Let’s just call this the ‘God’ Program, the computer software program that can deal with all of those free will possibilities or scenarios. In a computer / video game, the computer software program ‘knows’ the entire possible game flowchart and has to cater for all possible scenarios generated by the free-willed human player(s). But note that there’s nothing supernatural about a computer software program and thus if God is akin to a computer software program then there’s nothing supernatural about God.

So the question is not how is God the creator but rather how was God the created? Here’s a scenario. It’s the year 2525 and highly technologically advanced beings (probably human) have created the most advanced and sophisticated computer software program yet achieved, which they call ‘God’ (or maybe the “God’ Program) and this ‘God’ Program creates and controls a virtual reality landscape called Life, the Universe and Everything. We, including you and I, are just ‘existing’ as part of what we perceive as our really real 2017 reality but actual we ‘exist’ in that ‘God’ generated virtual 2017 reality landscape – 2017 being part of the ‘God’-generated simulation. That virtual reality landscape called Life, the Universe and Everything works. Again, there’s nothing supernatural about it.

But a computer software program – the ‘God’ Program – requires a creator. Humans are that creator, therefore ‘God’ was created in our image so to speak.

So the question is, a variation on a previous theme, who or what actually wrote the computer software program, the ‘God’ Program? But whatever who or what programmed the ‘God’ Program, that programmer(s) yet again doesn’t have to be supernatural even if the programmer(s) are so highly technologically advanced that they might appear to be magical or supernatural – Arthur C. Clarke’s Third Law.

Dropping down one level, we’re not supernatural yet we program our video / computer games through our creative abilities and perhaps those video / computer game characters we have created might view us as supernatural, and of course they would be incorrect. One might see a parallel here with some of our current religions.

It is often claimed that God ‘exists’ in a timeless and changeless state which is absolute rubbish IMHO since the very act of original though requires a temporal existence and a temporal existence requires change.

But, a computer software program – the ‘God’ Program – isn’t of course timeless and it isn’t changeless and it doesn’t exist in a timeless or changeless state of existence. Yet it doesn’t think, decide, ponder, deliberate or whatever other synonyms you care to use.

Backing up again one level, here’s a practical application of the ‘God’ Program. Now if you are willing to accept based on one book’s texts, that hundreds of people claimed they saw a supernatural Jesus (before, during and after) even though there is no independent verification of any of this that you yourself could make by yourself and for yourself regarding those supernatural claims, and yet you are (probably) not willing to accept the (usually way more recent) testimony of millions of people over thousands of years who have witnessed other (it can’t be therefore it isn’t vs. I know what I saw) anomalies – ghosts, dragons, fairies, aliens, Bigfoot, etc. – then that’s a double standard. One is no more credible than the other. But both can be assimilated into the ‘God’ Program (or in more common parlance, the Simulation Hypothesis) without any problem.

Here’s another variation on that scenario or theme. If we are virtual beings ‘existing’ in a computer software program – the ‘God’ Program – that has generated our simulated landscape called Life, the Universe and Everything then there is no reason why all mythological beings, from dragons to Horus; from leprechauns to Odin; from fairies to Apollo, couldn’t have also ‘existed’ albeit virtually. What software can bring into existence, software can terminate. That equally applies to all of the alleged events and characters in the Bible, including the supernatural beings – angels, demons, as well as the Trinity itself. Further, it easily accounts for any and all supernatural events or miracles related in Biblical texts, like the Sun and the Moon standing still in the sky; the creation of a woman from a male rib; Jonah in the ‘whale’ living to tell the tale; or the various accounts of what amounts to pure alchemy. With computer software programs, all things are virtually possible.

Black Belt Marketing Success Secrets

If you search the internet you’ll find millions of free and also paid online affiliate programs.

Most people have signed up in these online affiliate programs and tried to make money from them but failed miserably.

They don’t know why.

Are you one of them?

If yes, read on to find out how to locate the right top affiliate program and how to promote it to start making money.

All affiliate programs are not created equal.

Some will make you money if properly promoted and others will not, no matter what you do.

Why?

Below are some reasons why.

(1) The Right Affiliate Programs To Promote

Most people are under the mistaken notion that just because an affiliate program is free that they can promote it and get rich.

Nothing can be farther away from the truth.

The bitter reality is that if an affiliate program is free, then most likely thousands of people will want to sign up to promote it.

Since thousands of people are promoting it, competition will be stiff and so the likelihood of getting rich from it will be slim because there will be more people promoting it than people who wish to buy it.

When supply is greater than demand, profitability will nose dive.

This is economics 101.

So stay away from free online affiliate programs which hundreds of thousands of people are already promoting!

The best online affiliate program which will likely make you rich will be the one that very few people are promoting and which is in great demand. The demand MUST be greater than supply.

Most likely, such an affiliate program will not be offered free!

You will have to pay for it to promote it.

When people are required to pay to promote an affiliate program, then most people will not sign up for it, so only few people will promote it.

This will then guarantee that the demand for it will be greater than the number of people who promote it and this means that the profitability for it will skyrocket.

This is the kind of online affiliate program which can make you rich!

There are few people online who are getting rich from online affiliate marketing and this is one of their sacred hidden secrets of success!

(2) Build Landing Pages For Your Online Affiliate Programs

You must create a landing page at your website for any affiliate program which you desire to promote.

At the landing page, you will then include a short introduction of the affiliate program, preferably, your own personal experience of using the program or a short review.

Then at the bottom, include the link to the affiliate program website.

This affiliate program landing page must be optimized also.

You may also add Google AdSense ads and other pay per click ads as well as Clickbank products on this page to monetize it.

This way, if your customer doesn’t click and go to the affiliate program, they may click on any of the pay per click ads such as AdSense or Clickbankbuddy or pay per click ad and you’ll make money.

If you don’t know how to monetize your website with Google Adsense, Clickbankbuddy ads and pay per click products and ads, please contact us for free help.

By having a landing page for your affiliate programs at your website, you have the advantage of not losing all the traffic you’ve built up if the affiliate program is stopped.

If the affiliate program which you’re promoting is discontinued, you may replace it with another similar affiliate program and continue generating income from it.

(3) Secret To Promote Your Online Affiliate Program

Online marketing has become more difficult than rocket science.

During the past couple of years, most affiliate marketing strategies which used to work 6 yrs ago don’t work anymore.

E-mail marketing has been dead for many years now.

And the ISPs have added salt to the injury by creating so many filters which filter away your e-mail offers and so they don’t reach their destinations.

Besides, most people don’t read their e-mails anymore.

Most people have been bombarded by thousands of spams and offers and they just don’t have time to read these offers anymore.

So e-mail marketing is completely dead.

Free For All, FFA promotion is dead too.

Banner advertising is dead too, unless you have thousands of dollars to promote it at highly trafficked sites.

Search engine marketing, SEM doesn’t work any more because the search engines are constantly changing their optimization rules.

It takes both Google and Yahoo several weeks to even index your page and include it in their system.

You may optimize your website properly and attain a top ten position in a few keywords.

But they never last long.

In a few months when they update their search ranking, all your positions may likely disappear and your traffic will be gone too.

You may try to promote through Google Adword campaign.

But the truth is that not all programs can succeed in getting traffic from Google Adword or any other pay per click advertising.

If you try to promote an online affiliate program, which hundreds of thousands of others are already promoting using Google Adword and pay per click advertising, you’ll end up squandering thousands of dollars! This has happened to many people already.

So stop squandering your money in pay per click advertising.

You may also try to use article writing to promote your affiliate programs.

But very few people know the “SECRET” on how to write a highly optimized interesting article which will attain top ranking in the search engines and therefore produce traffic and sales for your online affiliate program.

To succeed in doing this, you must know how to optimize the article, it must be interesting and you must post it where many people will read it.

If you write and post an article but it can’t be found in the search engines when people search for the affiliate program which you’re promoting and if people are not reading it at the article directories where you posted it, you’ll not generate any traffic or sales!

This is what many people are doing and among the TOP reasons why they are not making any money in their online affiliate marketing.

(4) Traffic Is The Lifeblood Of Success In Online Affiliate Marketing Program

There are so many naïve people who have spent tons of dollars buying internet marketing e-books, programs and videos from so called internet marketing gurus and as if that is not enough, they have been suckered into squandering thousands of dollars attending seminars organized by these so called gurus only to find out that what they are peddling are outdated and archaic internet marketing strategies which don’t work any more.

These suckers never to think about the truth.

The truth is that no right thinking businessman will sell a secret on how to generate thousands of traffic daily to you for $50, when he knows he can keep his secret, use them to promote hundreds of affiliate programs and make millions.

The real truth is that these so called gurus have no secret that really work. But what they have is a large e-mail list which they have built through e-zine and newsletter publishing for many years.

So they make their money by marketing their e-books and affiliate programs to these mailing lists.

If you have 50,000-100,000 e-mail lists which you have generated over 6 yrs, you’ll always manage to make a few thousands of dollars marketing any program to them especially if it is about internet marketing!

In conclusion, there are still a few online affiliate programs which are easy to market and generate obscene income and there are still many jealously guarded traffic generating secrets which work and which can explode your website traffic and sales and so make you rich instantly.

But they are not free. They will cost you some money.

If you’re ready to pay to sign up in any of these few online affiliate programs, and to get the powerful traffic generating secrets of millionaire webmasters, then you’re serious about getting rich from online affiliate programs.
