Pandemic innovation at its finest!

Last Update: March 02, 2021

Today I had to pick up a prescription from my doctor at a medical facility and as with all health ans safety guidelines, I was required to answer several questions relating to my interaction with any Covid patients, if I had a fever or sore throat or had trouble breathing, or had lost my sense of smell or taste. This was followed by sanitising my hands and temperature check. All before I was even allowed to enter the automatic sliding doors to the building.

They say it takes a person 21 days to learn a new habit. It's been a year of the pandemic and for millions of people, several elements of the above is our new habit. Whether we like it or not, our habits and routines have been changed by force. Remote working, home schooling, wearing masks in public, mandatory sanitisation of hands and surfaces. Not so long ago in 2019, we would have never thought of entering this twilight zone that the pandemic has thrust the world.

WA was around long before Covid-19 and in spite of this global crisis, affiliate marketing continues and has itself evolved as the wheels in the minds of many affiliates churn out new and innovative ideas that have come about as a result of our surreal living reality. Some months ago in discussion with a friend when the pandemic had only just made an appearance, we were talking about what product / service consumers would now look for due to new behaviour patterns and needs. Here are a few innovative and some wacky inventions from over the last year:

1. Vending machine PPE - mask and sanitiser Vending machine PPE

2. FLYTE levitating light bulb - levitating light bulb

3. Water walker & spa - Aqua treadmill

4. iMicro C - fingertip microscope for your phone

5. Enomad Uno - Portable water generator

6. Eyelights - holographic car assistant

7. Lumzag - smart backpack

8. Chef IQ smark cooker - dummy proof cooker

9. Nella NuSpec Reusable Vaginal Speculum - gentler womens' health

10. Callaly tampliner - next generation tampon

We've come a long way since 2019. I wonder what 2021 will bring with Covid-19 still impacting life as we knew it. Can't wait to see what comes next - affiliates...thinking caps on!

What's cooking in the WA affiliates' world?

I think we constantly have to be in touch with our environments that could impact on our businesses so that we can see what is coming next. That way we can position ourselves with this knowledge to take advantage of the business opportunities and to be able to anticipate challenges so that we can avoid the threats.

Ultimately I believe that we can and will be the originators of new business ideas and best part we will be able to action them with our new found knowledge.

I think after Covid, working at home and online education will be the way forward.

I sure believe it will be so to an extent but with the way people really are clamoring to leave their homes, mingle and interact even when the pandemic is afoot, it may not be as much, and that is good as well

I have ridden those Tokyo trains! Nose to Nose, Garlic...but even worse were the buses in Taipei, Taiwan. More Garlicky! Loved seeing both countries, good people.

Agreed. It's already here and will likely continue with redesigned models.

So, I advertised on EBay, several items, a guy replies accepting
my price, with further instructions as to my Paypal for payment.
He gives me his phone and e-mail for further contact.
Now dig this: An old scam, but still being used by this
Chicago (Cook County) Gangsta!
"Can you ship to FL? i want to ship a $200 Ebay gift card, inside the package before you ship it! i will add $200 to your payment
plus $30 for gas and stress, and $30 for S & H Costs.
How gullible does this jerk think I am? These scammers need
to be exposed, so I am going to report this thug to the
AARP Fraud Network. Stay VIGILANT minute by minute.
Watch your Wallet/Purse!
