Europe and the LATAM region are attractive regions for many companies to establish operations. Europe”s overall cannabis market is projected to reach USD 66.8 Billion within the next five years, while the LATAM region is expected to reach USD 12.7 Billion in sales by 2028, according to Prohibition Partners. The research notes that several European countries have passed medical marijuana legislation recently, and there is a 50% chance a few more could pass recreational laws. Meanwhile, the LATAM region is being targeted mainly for cultivation facilities due to its fertile lands and inexpensive costs associated with growing, as more countries view legalization with zest. ‘As more markets open, international trade begins and research and science take a front seat in the coming years,’ said John Billings, head of cultivation for The Farm Dispensary. ‘There”s no reason to think this trend will not continue. Growing plants/varietals with higher concentrate returns will help keep production costs down. You have old players (Israel, Jamaica, GW Pharmaceuticals and the U.S.) and new players (Canada and Mexico) coming into the scene with their own ideas and plans.’

Cannabis is enjoying a global perspective shift on legalization, however, the industry is still heavily hindered by certain regulations. Nonetheless, many countries are exploring opportunities within the market for medical applications. Despite its continued global expansion, the U.S. continues to dominate the cannabis marketplace. According to Verified Market Intelligence, the global marijuana market was valued at USD 42.20 Billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 466.81 Billion by 2025. Additionally, the market is projected to register a CAGR of 35.3% throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2025.

On February 6, the St Kitts and Nevis Government issued a press release announcing the introduction of a new layer of security to its Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme. Digital fingerprinting is to be included as a new part of the already extensive due diligence procedures applied to Programme applicants. Repeatedly hailed by industry experts for its robust due diligence, St Kitts and Nevis will become the only Caribbean CBI jurisdiction to operate a digital fingerprinting system. The addition displays the Federation”s commitment to a Programme based on integrity.

Launched in 1984, St Kitts and Nevis” Programme is one of the industry”s most successful. Aspiring economic citizens can obtain second citizenship in return for an investment into a national development fund: the ”Sustainable Growth Fund”. The Government”s move to reinforce the Programme”s integrity is important not only for the nation”s international standing, but for applicants” personal reputations. Economic citizens are frequently entrepreneurial businesspersons, for whom a strong business reputation is essential. By strengthening security procedures, St Kitts and Nevis will be able to better safeguard the reputations of successful applicants.

The news broke at a recent citizenship event in Dubai hosted by Minister of Foreign Affairs the Hon. Mark Brantley. CBI agents and citizens attended the event, and Minister Brantley was joined by Attorney General Vincent Byron Jr. and the Head of the Citizenship by Investment Unit Les Khan. Mr Khan revealed that the necessary legislative framework for this introduction of biometric data is already established. He said, ‘agents looked at this new addition in a positive light because they are also interested in ensuring that we get the best people and that we don”t get any rogue individuals into our programme. This is something that is very important in that region, particularly because of the possibility of terrorist financing and terrorist activity, so we have to be very careful.’

Minister Brantley also took the opportunity to alleviate concerns surrounding unsanctioned discounts on the Programme”s real estate option seen last year. He stated that a full police investigation is underway and that the Government intends to bring justice to those responsible.

International legal advisory CS Global Partners is government-mandated to promote St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme.

Push Doctor, the UK”s leading digital health provider, has selected Datix as its patient safety software provider, moving patient safety beyond the physical walls of the healthcare provider and into the burgeoning virtual healthcare space. Push Doctor will deploy three Datix modules – Incident, Dashboard, and Risk Register – which will enable the digital physician practice to transform its current reporting system by improving accuracy of incident reports, standardising reports, and triangulating incident and risk data to identify improvement opportunities.

Push Doctor provides digital consultations to hundreds of thousands of patients each year. Push Doctor selected Datix not only for its established expertise and credibility, but also for the patient safety best practices Datix has developed from more than 30 years of working with healthcare providers to reduce preventable patient harm.

‘A key differentiator was that the Datix system could be configured around our individual policies, processes, and culture,’ said Wais Shaifta, CEO of Push Doctor. ‘The connectivity between incident and risk data is key to us, as it will provide us with a complete overview of all of our data and allow us to more accurately pinpoint areas for improvement, something that we couldn”t do with our previous system. We”re keen to start standardising our processes and improving accuracy with Datix.’

Push Doctor”s GPs are located remotely throughout the UK, which has posed a challenge in creating a clear or easy process for reporting incidents or risks. With Datix, however, all users will now have access to an instant incident reporting function, which will improve reporting rates, accuracy, and – ultimately – safety.

The three modules being implemented will provide Push Doctor with a user-friendly system that will make for easy engagement and standardisation of best practices for the diverse background that make up the online service. Employing a strong incident management tool will mean users can focus on their specialities and automate event notification. In addition, reports will be simplified, making them easier to understand, and stored in a central repository, eliminating challenges Push Doctor has previously experienced with management reporting.

‘Datix is on the leading edge of revolutionising healthcare”s approach to patient safety, and Push Doctor is on the leading edge of transforming the healthcare delivery system – which is why we are so excited about this partnership,’ said Claire Aldred, Datix Vice President Commercial UK and EU. ‘Two innovative companies working together to enhance the fast-growing online healthcare sector will create learning opportunities that this new alliance will open up for the benefit of patients across the UK.’

About Datix 
Datix has been a global pioneer in the field of patient safety over the past three decades and today is the leading provider of software for patient safety, risk management and incident reporting for the healthcare sector.

Datix aims to build and promote a culture of safety within healthcare organisations, recruiting professionals who are passionate about improving healthcare and championing technological innovation. Datix continually invests in its software and services, maintaining a leadership position at the forefront of the worldwide patient safety movement.

Internationally the Datix client base is growing rapidly and includes large scale deployments in the USA and Canada as well as customers in Europe, Australia and the Middle East. Datix has offices in London, Chicago and Washington DC, with partners in the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

There is a lot of scope for people to earn money online. One of the most effective ways for you to earn a substantial income online is to start your own affiliate network. Although there are various other methods and potential for you to earn money, affiliate marketing is not only one of the best but also the most reliable ways to you to start building a business that will help you to grow.

A number of people who started off as small affiliate marketers have now established their own small business and are continuing to grow. If you are planning to establish your own affiliate network then it’s important for you to make the right decision and take on the necessary measures so that you can become a successful affiliate marketer.

Choosing The Right Affiliates Network

In order for you to become a successful affiliate marketer you need to make sure you choose the right network. There are a number of different affiliate networks available out there and it might seem easy for you to pick the one that is the most popular, however this might not always work in your favor because you need to understand that when an affiliate marketing network is popular it is going to have a lot of marketers under its wing.

In order for you to grow you need to start off with a lower competition rate and then move to the bigger names in the market. Research is very important and without the right research you will not be able to determine whether an affiliate marketing site is a good site or not. Reading reviews is a great way to start, but you shouldn’t limit yourself to only reading reviews. Take your time to sign up for all the affiliate networks and explore the features for yourself.

Another great way for you to start off on the right foot is to enroll in an affiliate marketing training course. These courses give you a hands-on experience on what you need to expect from the affiliate networking site and how you will be able to benefit from these websites in the best possible manner. Although there are multiple affiliate marketing websites that are available, you need to make sure that you have read through them clearly and you go through all the terms and conditions before you decide to go ahead with one.

Certain affiliate marketing websites have rules with regards to withdrawing your funds and some of them do not allow you to withdraw your funds for up to 3 months. In order for you to be motivated to work you need to see the money coming in which is why websites that holds your money for up to 3 months are not the best websites to begin with.

You do not have to start off with only one affiliate marketing website. You can take your time and choose about two or three websites that you think will work best for you. Once you sign up on this website and you are ready to begin your journey with affiliate marketing you need to then start exploring the products.

Choosing The Right Product

Once you have chosen the right affiliate marketing network create a website that you would like to begin your journey with. You need to then consider which products you would like to promote so that you can earn a substantial amount of money. This is where a lot of affiliate marketers go wrong. There are so many products to choose from that it is only natural that you will get confused and might want to settle down for the products that look like the products that will sell the most. Yes, popular products have a high selling rate however they also have a lot of competition because that’s where all the big giants in the affiliate network are going after.

When you have just started out, selling products that are extremely popular might not be your best choice because these products are more likely to be sold by the most popular affiliate marketer who has been around for a while. The best way to choose a product that you think will work well for you is to divide the products into a list that works well, what you know most and which products you are most interested in. Once you have narrowed down a list of products that you think are good products you need to then choose a product that you understand the best. If you have purchased a product and you have a lot of knowledge on it, this is the best product to start with because you will be able to provide reviews and your own personal experience which is what most buyers look forward to reading.

Purchasing products in order to sell them might seem like a lot of investment, but it’s actually a great way to go because not only will you be able to show people the actual picture of the purchased product you will also be able to tell them your own experience on using the product. Smart affiliate marketers even launch their own YouTube channels where they show videos of the product and how it is being used.

If you plan on using products that are more technical in nature, you might want to consider creating these videos because it could get you a lot of hits and this will help to bring in a lot of money is well. Along with your videos you should also have a blog that talks in detail about the benefits, the uses as well as the cons of the product. Always let people know the truth about a product as it is and do not cover up the flaws that any product has. The more honest you are bitter in the review, the better the readers will like coming back to you and the stronger your network gets.

There are various reasons why a business requires data that is of good quality and cleaned on a regular asis. One of the major methods of promotion for businesses today happens to be email marketing and in order to you to get good results out of email marketing it is vital that the data your business uses is of the best quality and filtered on a regular basis. Although the pricing of email marketing usually includes the cost of a lot of data that could be used for the promotional activity, you need to understand that when it comes to promotional methods such as email marketing the quantity is very rarely something that matters.

The quality of the data definitely makes a huge difference and when you will use a small amount of data that is of good quality you are going to get better results out of it as compared to when you use a lot of data that was not clean. If you’re wondering how good quality data and right data cleansing services can help you grow your business through email marketing, then is important for you to read on.

The importance of email marketing

Everyone today depends on the internet for their business and promotion and if you don’t have a strong online presence it is going to be very difficult for your business to survive. While there are a number of promotional methods available today, email marketing is not only the most effective but it also happens to be the most affordable option that you will find. Some businesses choose to use email marketing services from a digital marketing agency and other companies choose to establish their own server inside the organization. No matter what method you use, the quality of data that you are going to feed into your system is extremely important for the success of the marketing services.

If you provide the data to a digital marketing agency they will try and clean the data from their end, but you need to understand that you understand what requirements you have better than any other professional agency which is why getting it done on your end makes more sense. With popular services like fuzzy matching and many other data cleaning processes, it is extremely convenient as well as easy for an organization to clean the data regularly so that the data is not only fresh and active but it is filtered and all the duplicate content is taken off.

Email marketing is similar to an advertisement that you would place in the paper, except the receiver needs to open your email in order to see the content inside of it. If you spam the mailbox with too many emails in one go this will force them to report the email that you have sent them or delete it without even taking a look at the content inside. While more stable email addresses that you have accumulated happen to be people who could be your potential customers, you should understand that unless you put this database to good use, you will not get the desired results.

Why you need clean data?

When your data is clean it cuts down a lot of your effort that you would have to put in to manually to filter any email addresses that appears in your data. Even though you might try and filter your data as much as possible, this process is seldom going to happen quickly when done manually. This is why it is best to opt in for professional data cleaning services. Good quality and clean data results in lesser problems with the entire promotional activity and this will lead to less people marking your mail as a spam mail.

These days a lot of businesses invest in server so that they can send out emails on their own. If you happen to be one of these businesses then you already invested a lot of money into the server so that you could send out your mails whenever you wish to. While this might seem like a convenient and affordable option, it is important for you to maintain your server and keep it clean so that nobody reports it as spam. If you send out spam emails on a regular basis your server will eventually get blacklisted. A blacklisted server will not be able to send out emails to the inbox of a recipient and this means that all your promotional activities will be in vain.

When you clean data you get rid of all unwanted email addresses as well as any email address that has been listed as a no contact email address. Any person who is listed as a no contact should not be sent an email because that reports your mail as spam automatically and it could risk your business.

You lose out on all the wrong and invalid email addresses as well as duplicate content when you clean data. This means that the number of contacts that you will be sending out an email to will reduce. Whether you choose to promote your business by sending an email or whether you have a business to do it automatically for you, it will affect the cost of your email campaign. It motivates you to promote your business via mailing because the response that you get is definitely going to be better.

You need to understand that in order for your business to become a successful business you need to choose the right promotional methods and while there are different ways that you can promote your business, email marketing is the most effective. In order for email marketing to work in your favor you need to make sure that you use good quality data that has been cleaned so that your service remains intact and the response that you get from the mailing from time to time is always positive and it helps motivate you.
