"Whenever you complete a task of any size or importance,
you feel a surge of energy, enthusiasm, and self-esteem.
The more important the completed task, the happier, more confident,
and more powerful you feel about yourself and your world."

- Brian Tracy

NMRKT customizes and installs eCommerce shops and shoppable functionalities onto online magazines and blogs. Enabling publishers to sell all the product they love and endorse, all of the time through a brand-right and seamlessly integrated interface. With NMRKT, publishers can engage readers from hype to sale and add an additional revenue stream with no upfront costs or infrastructure. 


NMRKT installs custom eCommerce shops and shopping functionalities onto top tier blogs and magazines, allowing retailers and brands to sync their eCom product for additional brand-right sales and marketing channels. When a reader clicks on an item in the publisher's shop or article, it redirects them to complete the purchase on the retailer's site - so they own every sale. It's as easy as pinning on Pinterest to sync, no upfront costs (only small affiliate on referred sales made), and brand-right all the time as you choose which publishers to affiliate with.

I've got big ideas about The Giving Model (yes, proper noun) that we use, and I want to get everyone on the planet to start using. What if this holiday season, every time you spent money on a consumer product, you donated something (anything) to a good cause. It can be $5, or 5% or $0.05, but something.

"Hey I just bought my wife a $200 necklace, let me go donate $20 to the lung transplant foundation because my dad died of lunch cancer and that cause is important to me"


"Hey kids, I don't need another pair of earrings, but please give the gift of sight through Unite for Sight on my behalf this holiday season. It only costs $5 to help someone less fortunate on my behalf" (and they get a nice card to give as a present).

Fleshing this all out with our team and getting a lot of other brands, businesses, and consumers to join. Here's some press we got today about it:


Heltzer - Website revamp
Hoya Gateway - read a few emails and respond
Matty Boobs - Sales follow up
JP's friend - Sales follow up
Chartos - Sales follow up

Questions to ask yourself after setting a goal:
What is the purpose of this goal?
Why is it important to me?
