Think and tell

We rarely stop to pause and think of the effects each of our small decisions might have. 80% of our buying decisions are solely determined by the cost – we buy the product that costs the least (probably not in the case of a car, house, phone or laptop). But when looking for, say, a website-hosting provider we’ll look up the top 5 providers and select the one that offers the cheapest solution.

GoDaddy offers the cheapest alternative – probably the reason why it’s the biggest in the business. What if I told you there’s another site Fatcow which, for about 60 cents/month more than what GoDaddy charges you, offers you web-hosting services which are run entirely using wind energy?Will you spend the extra 7.2 dollars a year and choose the environmentally friendly Fatcow or does GoDaddy win?

Was it because Fatcow was too expensive or because you thought that your decision wouldn’t make a difference in the big picture anyways? Do we clap for Fatcow for caring about our world and trying to make a difference, or punish it by overlooking it and causing it to ultimately fold? You tell me, because it’s entirely your choice. And yes, it does matter.

    Have you ever thought about including more than merely your
    articles? The reason is, what you may say is valuable and all.

    However just think about should you ever added great for most visuals or videos to supply your
    site content more, “pop”! Your site content is very useful but with images and movies, this blog –
    could definitely be one of the absolute best within
    the niche. Amazing blog!
