Health is wealth, as we have often heard. This is indeed true. With the rising cost of living, being unfit or unwell can be quite costly. The rising cost of healthcare also adds to the worry of the ordinary citizen. However, in the daily course of our life, it is almost impossible not to experience pain, no matter how slight, as we carry on our daily tasks or routine. I'm not huge on popping pills or taking medicines every time I feel pain. But whenever I do experience pain I'm glad there's Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products. I more specifically go for Walgreens Low Dose Aspirin Tablets.
They're color and dye-free too, which makes perfect sense as you're taking a product to take care of your health. Plus I don't need to pay as much as a name brand product. Let's face it, paying less is great, especially for health maintenance. One other thing I like about Walgreens is its commitment to health, education, and disease prevention. Every purchase of Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products actually adds to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. This will in turn provide for preventive health and wellness services, tests, and education to local communities. I personally believe that we should support companies and organizations that not only strive to provide good, quality products but also to promote the welfare of larger communities as a way of giving back.
Incidentally, there's an ongoing Walgreens Brand Sweeps Contest that you can participate in. They have giveaways too, so I urge you to check it out. You may win some Walgreens Gift Cards.

For years we've seen digital “product launches”... we've all become accustomed to it, a few pre-launch videos, maybe a free giveaway and then the big “reveal.” It's all good and in many cases very useful stuff, at the very least its educational and entertaining. But lately, there has been quite a few “launches” that spewed outright lies on the industry. Outrageous claims, fictitious product creators portrayed by paid actors, fabricated and doctored images to serve as income proof for a product that can't do what it claims or might not even exist.
Marketers and consumers from every niche have been speaking out more and more against the snakes and scammers. The top industry forums are full of threads about these crappy products an the snakes that make them. Bloggers have gone crazy putting these guys on blast and Facebook has been buzzing for months about it. There are hundreds of Youtube videos where marketers and consumers of digital info products and software are speaking their minds. I guess the final straw has broken the camels back.
The public outcry was heard loud and clear by a select group of ethical marketers that have banded together to create what is the first website to unify the good guys and hold marketers accountable for their actions. The website is called IMTrustWorthy.com and it several purposes for both internet marketers and consumers of digital products. The members have all agreed to abide by the IMTrustWorthy “Prudent Practices” of Internet marketing. This is a list of 12 rules that help protect consumers from fraud and hold the marketer to a high standard of commerce.
First off, IMTrustWorthy provides a “seal” image with your unique license number digitally imprinted. The seal code can be placed on your website for the world to see that you are a registered member of IMTrustWorthy. When a visitor clicks on the seal a window pops open with the marketers name, and rating. The window may also contain comments from other IMTrustWorthy members regarding the character and trustworthiness of the marketer in question.
A member's rating is determined by an algorithm that takes the positive and negative feedback left on their site into high consideration. This is a lot like the feedback rating in eBay except here the feedback is demonstrated by 5 stars and the comments are displayed on the marketers profile page. This is so that a potential customer or JV can look at what other members are saying rather than just having to take the endorsement of the company that sold the seal. In other words, you can't just “buy” your trustworthiness.
That being said, there is also a “Premier” membership available for $17 per month. The premier members have some additional features inside the members area, they get a multi-site license which enables them to use the seal on as many sites as they own. Also, they get access to a “Seal Generator”, this is a software that lets you create seals in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Premier members also get to load a banner and link for their site which rotates in the website and can potentially bring consumers back to their offer. Over all this is a pretty good value for only $17 when you consider the prices that those “other” seal companies out there charge.
One of the things that you'll like the most about IMTrustWorthy is the social aspect and the ability to meet other GOOD guys. The website has a “JV WALL” this is basically a comunication page where you can comment on the threads and connect with other marketers. There is also an internal messaging system. It's no Facebook, (then again who needs another Facebook) but it is well suited to help marketers create joint venture partnerships and affiliations with other IMTrustWorthy members.
I think it's about time that we band together and separate ourselves from the snakes and the scammers. All in all this website is a WIN for the good guys. Sure, there will be scammers that try to brandish the IMTrustWorthy seal, but the other members will quickly make that known in the comments and their rating will drop. IMTrustWorthy doesn't actually rate the marketers, the members do. If you ask me, thats a pretty fair shake and only the scammers need to be afraid. I suggest you create a free account and check it out for yourself.
