Is Swisscoin REALLY a Scam ? The Honest Truth


Good morning to my fans and all my readers (bigcashers) I have received hundreds of comments and questions just in the last week about  Swisscoin.  Asking me , “Are they legit imate?”.  “Well here is the honest truth”.

It’s Darrell back at you today, a beautiful cool 68 degree sunny morning ,with a very important and serious share.

This  post titled “Is Swisscoin really a scam? The honest truth” should clear things up for my readers (big cashers) where I stand, that’s what we do here at  the cash blog we draw the line in the sand if it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck ………………………’s a  duck.     

If you are looking for more information about Swisscoin you are not alone. The Swisscoin website provides no information at all about their opportunity and consist of basically a signup page.

When a company does not publicly reveal information about how they operate their business it’s usually because they have something to hide.

Swisscoin Products

Swisscoin offers no retail products. All products and services offered by swisscoin ( training packs ) are only available to be purchased by and from affiliates.


Swisscoin Compensation Plan

The Swisscoin compensation plan is based on investments in tokens as follows:

Trainee ( 25 Eur) – 200 tokens

Tester-50 ( 50 Eur) -500 tokens

Tester-100 (100 Eur) -1,000 tokens

Tester-250 (250 Eur)-2,500 tokens

Tester 500 (500 Eur)-5,000 tokens

Trader 1000 ( 1000 Eur)- 10,000 tokens

Crypto Trader ( 2500 Eur)-25,000 tokens

Crypto Maker (5000 Eur )-60,000 tokens

Crypto Broker (7500 Eur)-90,000 tokens

Crypto Manager (10,000 Eur)-120,000

Crypto Director (15,000 Eur)-200,000 tokens

These tokens are later converted into Swisscoins which are a digital currency developed by Swisscoins.

The value of a swisscoin is solely set and established by the owners of Swisscoin and Swisscoins are not available for purchase by the general public. Therefore Swisscoins have no real external value.

The Conclusion:

We have  seen it all before. Swisscoin  is another case of an MLM company attempting to capitalize on the allure of cryptocurrency though the company actually has nothing to do with digital currency at all.

Essentially affiliates are investing in a fake currency that does not exist outside of the Swisscoin ecosystem and worse the vvalue of this fake currency is an arbitrary number set by the company.

Swisscoins are not traded on any crypto exchanges and cannot be used to purchase anything outside of the Swisscoin website.

In short, Swisscoin is a scheme designed to prey on  unsuspecting investors  and crypto newbies and and separate them from their hard earned money. As a former investor  always remember the old adage . “If it sounds too good to be true,it probably is”

I  personally won’t be investing in Swisscoin and I would wisely advise  my  readers (big cashers) who sent questions and comments to me to think about it long and hard before doing so. Let me know if you agree with “IS Swisscoin Really a Scam the honest truth.”

Until next time be sure to share all you have heard about Swisscoin in the comments section, and spread the word about the cash blog.  You my readers are the future and voice of this blog. Thanks and take care.

6 Fears Businesses Have about Social Media


Good morning everyone it’s a chilly 51 degree chilly morning in Iowa. It’s Darrell back at you with a serious share today. Get ready y’all I think it’s gonna be a cold winter this year.

As most of you know 70% of our income here at  the cash blog is derived from our social media management service.

Yesterday I was cold calling business owners all afternoon and it really surprised me how many felt that a social media presence isn’t necessary.

With our social media management service  we help establish your brand presence in social media channels, but also tighten the relationship you have with existing customers ,while driving word of- mouth advertising as well as conversions.

So this post is titled “6 Fears Businesses Have about Social Media”. so  Let’s Roll.

Social media marketing is one of the greatest developments in the marketing world in the past decade.

Some companies have risen to unbelievable heights solely on their social media  acumen while others have refused to adopt any strategy at all.

1. They don’t understand how ” Social Media work”

Some business owners have convinced themselves that social media platforms are weird and  strange and it’s only for teenagers.

They haven’t taken a moment to learn how Facebook timelines work or  why Twitter is used for different types of interactions than LinkedIn.

Basically a few hours on any platform are all it takes for even a beginner user to grow accustomed to the basics and the basics are all you need to be effective.

Read this helpful post 31 Tips to Get more Facebook Likes !


2. They’re overwhelmed by the number of social media platforms.

Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, Google +, Inform are just a handful of the most popular social media.

That number grows bigger everyday and to make things worse there are multiple ways for businesses to use every platform.

The number of options is overwhelming to a novice. The key is identifying which platforms will be your best option.

Listen to what small business owner  Ray Vandenberg said about us.

3. They don’t want to hire someone new.

Social media marketing is usually seen as a new wing of marketing, and in order to tackle it a business person would need to hire someone new who specializes in it.

However a full-time person is rarely necessary  for a social media marketing strategy, except for larger brands who might even need more people.

According to  social media examiner by tracking conversions you can connect a dollar value to your social media marketing efforts.

4. They don’t understand purpose.

The purpose of social media marketing is debatable but too many entrepreneurs are skeptical of it’s benefits simply due to how it’s been presented to them.

The reality is social media marketing isn’t some magical booth that will suddenly flood paying customers to your business.

It has a number of subtle benefits, such as increasing your visibility on the web and providing information to several-savvy customers, but most importantly ti can drive lots of people to your website.

5. They don’t want to change from traditional advertising and networking.

Some entrepreneurs are so familiar with traditional methods they refuse to change. The traditional and social media efforts can be done in balance to give you the best of both world’s.


6. They don’t see value.

The objective value of social media is hard to calculate  as a result it scares many businessmen away.

Since most of social media’s effects are indirect or hard to measure. As long as people continue using technology as a means of communication there will be a space for social media marketing.

If social media marketing is properly understood and implemented it can yield a positive ROI  (return on investment)  for any business. If you don’t have a social media marketing strategy, give it a shot , signing up for most platforms is free.

Read this post that went viral  What Level Blogger Are You?


2.The 4-Hour Work Week ( Tim Ferrris)

The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

This book strongly rejects the traditional approach to life planning where people work their butt off: take very little time off from work over the years and save up money for retirement.

Tim talks about building a business that works for you and not a business that you work for (get it? )  It is about having a lifestyle where you are in control and not one where circumstances dictate your activities

Tim Ferris wrote the 4-Hour Work Week for those looking to maximize their productivity and freedom. The book is an excellent read so good it was on the New York Times bestseller list for years.

Many entrepreneurs consider Tim Ferris the ultimate business guru and he has a huge devoted following to prove it.

So what’s in the 4-hour work week:

It includes Tim Ferris story of having a lifestyle of $ 40,000 per year and 80 work hours per week to $ 40,000 per month and 4 hours per week.

There is a lot of practical advice and case studies in here that will help you rethink and reinvent how you should do business.


3.The Happiness of Pursuit (Chris Gillebeau)

The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest That Will Bring Purpose to Your Life

This book is basically about finding purpose in life by working to accomplish big goals and seeking out adventure.

Chris Guillebeau decided to visit every country in the world. The people he profiles in the book chose a wide variety of quest,taking a vow of silence.

You can chose to pursue whatever quest happens to interest you. Check this book out it really is a fun read.

4.Starting an Online Businesss for Dummies  (Shannon Belew)

Shannon Belew’s start-up classic is a great replacement for whatever text book you would use in an entrepreneurship class to prepare for business ownership.

The book offers insider information on a wide range of topics,covering all stages of the start-up process from raising money to motivating staff.

There are plenty golden nuggets of information truly a  very good read.

Read this post 5 Blogging Tips that Get Huge Results.

6  Cool Reasons I am an Amazon Affiliate

Hey  ladies and gentlemen and a special hello to my readers (big cashers) it’s the chief blogger back at you on a cool Monday night.

I went to Chicago for the weekend to visit my sister , brother,  nieces and nephews. And everybody was doing just fine. It’s about a 5 hour drive from Iowa, so I’m going to do this night time share and get myself to bed ! Let’ s Roll.

I have been getting alot of questions about the Amazon Affiliate program from my readers (big cashers). There are rumors out there so tonight’s post I want to clear things  up read this post I wrote in April to get in the loop ”  Become an Amazon Affiliate and Prosper

Rated # 1 on the top 20 Influencers on affiliate marketing (per Klout).  He owns over 150 domains also is founder of the  Affiliate Summit.

An  influencer I read  daily Shawn Collins has been an Amazon Affiliate for over 20 years.

The usual reasons I hear  people give for not being an Amazon Affiliate include

  • The commissions are too small. They start at 4% and for most products can go as high as 8% depending upon how many products are sold.
  • Because most people on Amazon buy low priced products like books,so 4% of a $10 product doesn’t add up to a worthwhile commission

All of these are very valid reasons:

One of my favorite bloggers influencer Darren Rowse of  problogger has been an Amazon Affiliate since 2003.

6 Cool Reasons I  am an Amazon Affiliate

The main reasons I still am an Amazon Affiliate (apart from the obvious fact that it converts for me) are:

  • Amazon is a highly  trusted brand

everyone knows Amazon. If someone was going to buy online, Amazon would have to be one of the safest options. I know I trust them. Love unlimited Kindle and Prime.

  • Commissions are higher  on higher value product

while 4% on a book isn’t a high commission if you promote a high value product like a professional camera the commission can be decent

  • People buy more than one item at a time

when you send someone to Amazon you earn a commission on whatever they buy and whatever they end up buying within a 24 hour period. Many people load up their cart with huge amounts of items so commissions can add up fast.

  • Easy Integration

Amazon provides some good tools and widgets to help you integrate the sales channel into your website.

  • Holidays are booming times

Amazon runs some good seasonal sales. The merchandise sells like hotcakes. Thanksgiving to Christmas can be  a very profitable time to promote and sell. Get on the bandwagon now y’all.

  • Amazon has a wide supply of different products.

Amazon is much more than books these days guys. There are so many promotional options that most niches would probably find something relevant to their audience.

Ladies and gentlemen I’ll never argue that Amazon’s Affiliate program is perfect for every blog but I do think it’s worth checking out don’t  snooze or you’ll ……………

Top Amazon Sellers   and the  Making Cash Online Bookstore are  Amazon technology driven stores and do very well for us here.

Read this helpful Review   Amazon Affiliate Program Review.

Here’s How to Make Money from Amazon’s Affiliate program.

1. Build Traffic to Your Blog

Traffic, traffic, traffic. As with most methods of making cash from blogging,the more eyeballs that see your offers the better chance you have of them converting. Yes it is a numbers game.

Does that mean it’s not worth experimenting with Amazon’s Affiliate program if you don’t get much traffic?

Personally I think it’s definitely worth using early on. You won’t earn a huge amount but you will learn a lot and earning a few dollars is better than none.

In my first 3 months of using Amazon I earned $22.95, it wasn’t much but what would have happened if I’d have let that small amount stop me from trying?

So guys experiment early but starting  out your main focus needs to be on creating great content and building traffic to your blog.


2. Build Loyalty and Trust with Your Readers

Loyalty and trust = sales. While I do get a fair amount of search engine traffic. I’ve found that in most cases search visitors don’t sign up to the affiliate programs on my  blogs. Loyal and repeat readers do.

The main reason for this is that readers who connect with you on a daily basis begin to trust you ( and your blog).

When you make a recommendation or do a review they’re more likely to take that advice than someone who has just arrived from a search engine.

Read one of my Best post  Top 4 Affiliate Marketing Programs.


3. Find Relevant Products to Promote.

This is another common sense tip that many of us screw up. The more relevant your products are to your audience the better chance you’ll have of converting sales.

19 Proven Ways  to Make Money Online While in College

Hello ladies and gentlemen it’s Darrell the chief blogger here at euro-317926_1280 the cash blog back at you today for a  epic share.

It’s a rainy cool 60 degrees here in Iowa.  I have been getting hundreds of questions and comments from my readers who are in college asking me “What are the best ways to make money online ? ”  “for them”.

My two kids are grown and long gone,guys I had my first kid at 18 so y’all get the picture. Now  I do have two nieces and a nephew who are in college and they are included in  the ones asking questions and the reason for this  post.

The majority of the information out there regarding  making money is mostly fluff. The fact of the matter is most make money online information is written by a writer who only writes for a living. Never by real entrepreneurs that actually make a living from online.

In internet marketing we would say “they don’t drink their own Koolaid.”

The last four years I’ve made a living working from online since Jan 2016 on a full-time basis. I’ve seen the good ,bad and ugly.

In this post guys  I have provided you with well researched  information you can use and have left out the bad and ugly. I have left out time-wasting programs that will earn you a candy bar  and a coupon at the end of the month.

In case you are thinking who the hell are you lol, learn more about me, read my article   About Us

Even though some freelance and survey companies are legit and serve their purpose, I didn’t include them either. Check my archives  I  did  a previous post on them. But now  Let’s Roll with this post  ” 19 Proven Ways to Make Money Online.”

Digital Products

Guys there has never been a better time in history to make money from online. The internet has made it easy to sell your skills and information to the masses.

The digital age is now and it has never been bigger than today. Whether it’s reading products digitally or watching videos more and more people are getting used to online purchasing and there is no sign it will stop soon.

Please read  Dave Ramsey’s  Complete Guide to Money…………………..Today ….for more ideas.


There are several different platforms you can sell video products on and each will give you a different result. If you want to start a video classroom and teach consumers, the most popular video classroom site is

It’s really a super site that is free to sign up with. I have used this site for both buying and selling video material.

The content and quality of material I have purchased as a customer has been top- notch. The user-friendly platform makes it easy to upload videos even for a non-techie like myself.

The beauty of Udemy and selling digital products online is that the income is passive. Yes, once you are finished making your videos and posting them to the site you no longer have to work on them again.

Think about it while you are in class or even at the soldout football game your income  G-R-O-W-S !

Udemy has a flexible pricing structure. Classes can be free or you can charge in the hundreds based on the content.

It is important that the videos you make contain great content ,because customers will review your courses. As  reviews go up so will your sales. Hey readers, I recommend you add this  revenue stream to your life.

Skillfeed  is another video teaching platform that is starting to gain popularity. Although not  as popular as Udemy. You get paid based on how popular your content is,which is determined by the total monthly minutes played.


Stone River eLearning

If you are well-versed in computer technology,programming , software training or web design then StoneRiver eLearning might be the perfect place to upload your video classes.

The  site allows customers to receive IT certifications. If you are an expert in the technology space, it won’t hurt to post your videos and allow them to grow with Stone River eLearning.


Teaching Game and App Creation  – This site is designed to teach students how to create games  and apps. The site is diverse allowing users to create and sell games on the website itself.  So far the site has received five-star ratings.

I have a few of my techie friends doing really well on this site,guys don’t sleep on Zenva.

Writing for Pay


Kindle has become a great way for many self-publishing authors to get their books into the hands of readers directly. The beauty of Kindle is that it user the Amazon platform, which is the # 1 marketplace on the planet.

When it comes to eReaders, Kindle is king. It owns 75-90% of the eReader market. Want to write a fiction on a topic you’re interested or a non-fiction book helping customers?

Sure no problem, no topic is out of bounds for a platform like Kindle. The digital revolution is truly here so don’t get left behind. Kindle offers a great royalty program.

Giving writers 70% royalties on all books $2.99 or more allowing you to generate passive income month after month.  What is  passive income ?.

Kindle makes it simple to start your writing career today just go to sign up and start making an online income.


Although kindle has most of the market share in  self-publishing don’t sell yourself short. There are other sites that allow you to sell your ebooks as well such as  smashwords, nook ,and apple iBook.

For the best results it is great to sell your books on multiple platforms, some sites will forbid  posting the same book on others under certain conditions.

The key to self-publishing is  building a name brand. With a big enough brand name your fans will sell your books for you.

Physical Books

Did you know you can turn any of your ebooks into physical books for Free ? Yes FREE!

Sites like (owned by Amazon ) is a print on demand company that will print your books as they are ordered and send them off to customers.

Createspace is a great compliment to Kindle  it will lead to additional sales of your books.

Audio Books

More people are not only consuming digital content now more than ever,but are consuming their content by audio.

Sites like (owned by Amazon) allow you to take your books and turn them into audio books. So now your one Kindle book, is now making money for you three separate ways.



I know its a long read guys  but if you’re looking for an all-purpose place to sell audio, video or written products? is your answer. The site has it all allowing you to share and sell any digital product you can imagine.

With Gumroad you are 100% in charge simply direct visitors to your Gumroad page and collect the money as your information sells.


Make Money Writing Articles

You can make money writing for various websites. Sites like offer $ 50 per blog. The site will actually pay you $ 100 for each article you write for them. Keep in mind guys your article must get accepted to get paid.

Prominent magazines like allow freelance contributors to write for them. The site pays up to $1000 for high quality articles and interviews.


Peer to Peer Lending

Did you know you can act as a bank and allow someone to borrow money with an interest rate? Peer to Peer lending allows you to do just that.

Sites like this give you all the tools you need to loan money to consumers,including their credit ranking. Turn your $ 1000 into $ 1250 in just a few months.

The two giants in this space are   Prosper  and I have used Prosper a couple of times.

Each time I chose someone I thought would be responsible. I got all my cash back plus some. You can loan up to $35,000. I would advise you to start much lower and get your feet wet first.


Teaching and Tutoring

Teach  a language to citizens of other countries on sites like ,  and which allows you to teach students one on one.

You will get paid by the hour. Not only is this a good way to generate income you will be helping someone achieve their dream………….of learning a new language……….now that’s Cool !


Smart college kids . Are you smart in subjects like algebra or biology ? Become an online tutor on sites like  or

Another way to teach students is by tutoring for the SAT. You will need to score high on the prep test but if you pass you can earn up to $50 per hour on sites like


Sell Physical Products with No Money Down

One way many people are making money online with no money down is by selling t-shirts. Yep t-shirts. Sites like and zazzle allow sellers to customize their own t-shirts on the website,open a store and start selling them on the spot.

Of course cafepress is going to take a percentage of all your sales. But the site takes care of all the fulfillment for you. All you have to do is electronically make the design.

This can work without spending a dime I started a Twitter page and began to build a following selling my own personal brand just  goofing around and it turned into a few hundred dollars a month. Give it a shot y’all. What do you have to lose?


Affiliate Marketing

One of the most profitable and common ways to sell products for free online is through affiliate marketing. The idea and process of affiliate marketing will take three books  to  explain but I will simplify it so you start to make money today.

The easiest way to make money with affiliate marketing is to sell products that already exist online. By simply signing up for a site’s affiliate program you are given a special link to the website that you can post anywhere.

When someone clicks on the link and makes a purchase on the website you will receive a commission on the sales.

The  Top Amazon Sellers Store   and  my Making Cash Online Bookstore are examples of  Amazon  affiliate stores. One of the most popular and easiest affiliates to sell items from is Amazon.

The program allows you to sell Amazon products from anywhere and keep 4-9% of all sales you make.

7 Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Followers !


“7  Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Followers “

Hello  to all my readers (big cashers) it’s  Darrell back at you.  The chief blogger at the cash blog, today I’m doing a weekend social media share. Actually it’s evening 6 pm a beautiful 69 degrees here in  Iowa.

Here at the cash blog my  go-to social media outlets are Facebook and Twitter. I already did  my post about Facebook  ”  31 Tips to Get More Facebook likes.”

So I decided to do one  about Twitter  since my readers (big cashers) requested that.   Join my 19,000  Twitter followers and follow me too ! thanks in advance everybody.

Today’s post “7 Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Follower’s” took about 4 hours of research  so I am expecting my loyal reader’s to use that donate button today and show me  “some love”. Now back to the post.

Guys instead of focusing on getting as many followers as possible focus on engaged followers.

The difference is that engaged followers with whom you have established relationships  with are more likely to Retweet, and Like your content than someone who only followed you because you followed them first.

Twitter’s 320 million current active user’s represent an all-time high. Of course Facebook is king with 1.7 billion.

However Twitter is a great platform for businesses, brands and professionals with more than 135,000 daily signups.

75% of businesses are on Twitter to engage with their customers.

7 Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Followers

1. Use Attractive Clear Profile Images, Cover Photo and Background

Only three images can be added to Twitter therefore you need to make the most of these photos. The three areas where you can add a picture are the header,profile and background.

If the profile you have on Twitter is personal you should use a picture of yourself as the image.

The background and header can be used to represent your company. It is for attracting new followers.

Elevate your social media presence with my  Social Media Management service.


2. Asking Questions is an Effective Way To Attract Followers

Questions in your tweets are more likely to get more conversations started. So start tweeting questions to get answers.

Come up with relevant questions about your niche.

When you get responses,make sure to followup with those who answer you. Show them  you’re listening and care.

You may also want to highlight certain answers by retweeting them with a response to keep the conversation alive and inspire even more interaction and followers. I recommend tweeting questions at least three times a week

Read fun post ”  Make Money  with YouTube Videos.”


3. Attach Images for Better Interaction and  Followers

Images always attract more attention from people than text. Images in your text will definitely increase your followers So start adding images with your tweets.

You may not always have time to add images to your tweets, but you’re likely to be rewarded.    ” Tweets with images received

  • 18% more clickthroughs
  • 89% more favorites
  • 28% more followers
  • 150% more retweets

Source:  digitalinformationworld.


4. # Hashtag Your Topic

Your tweets are only seen by your followers. However when you use a hashtag followed by a word they can potentially be seen by any user.

By including the hashtag symbol (#) you categorize your tweets  which make them appear when a user searches the term.

Clicking a hash tagged word shows other Tweets that include the same hashtag.

Please read  Social Media Marketing for “Dummies” for  more ideas.

5. Include Emoji’s and Symbols

Those little icon’s we once called “smileys” have come a long way. Today a lot of emoji’s and symbols appear in tweets and people seem to love them.

Guys try including non-text characters to make your message stand out.

From your smartphone,it’s easy to grab emoji’s straight from the keyboard and catch the eyes of many followers.

6. Face Your Followers

To everybody I want to encourage you to feature yourself in your tweets every now and then.

It will definitely help get more of a personal connection and build trust with followers. Toss a candid selfie on Twitter.

7. Quote Someone

Twitter users really connect with quotes,funny quotes. Toss the occasional quote into your tweet mix, especially when you come across something thoughtful or inspiring.

Don’t let the 140- character limit for tweets stop you from posting a longer quote. Quotes as well as images will attract more eyeballs and get more followers.

27 Easy First Year Blogging Goals ! (my favorite # 16)


Good morning ladies and gentlemen  and my loyal readers (big cashers) it’s Darrell coming at you on a rainy Wednesday here in Iowa. Today I have a serious share with you.

Have you heard ? AboutMe.

I have received  a lot of comments from 1st year bloggers who have quit blogging . So this post is to help and give some encouragement  titled  “27 Easy First Year Blogging Goals”.

Personally what helps me is  I truly enjoy  writing and blogging  I constantly measure my progress  and   see that I have made tremendous  progress .

That gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.  Thanks to all of you.I  am getting over 500 visits a day.   Whoa ! On to the post. Let’s Roll.

Blogging is about having a good idea and working hard to make it a reality. Success  in blogging doesn’t happen overnite. It takes a lot of sweat effort and commitment over a long period of time.  It is a marathon not a sprint.

And the best way to run a marathon guys is to break up the race into smaller segments and set small milestones in order to make the distance more manageable. Same works for a blog.

When I was in the army, at PLDC (primary leadership development course) my favorite instructor Sgt. Lopez used to say to me Harris if you keep winning battles eventually you will win the war.

Same with a blog, accumulating many smaller milestones and wins regularly over a period of time will lead to big results and achievements of large blogging goals.

Think of  Very Simple Yardstick Measurements for Your Progress

Guys no matter where you are at currently the path to where you want to be starts with the step you are taking right now.

Blogging goals are achievable by simplifying it all and taking one small step at a time. Take one day at a time. One blog visitor at a time.

One Facebook like at a time….. think of very simple yardstick measurements for your progress. One mention from Brian Clark  of  Copyblogger  could  increase your traffic immensely.  Big cashers one step at a time.

How can you know for sure that what you’re doing is moving you forward? It’s important to  measure your progress and ask questions. Look for examples. Explore what could go wrong.

Guys there is no magic trick and there is no secret. The shortcut and quick fix promises from certain gurus and their sales pages that you might read online.

Or the secrets and tricks of SEO industry are just empty and will not do the magic trick for you. Instead you must focus on the basics of plain old hard work. If you don’t believe me ask my friend Michael Arrington at  at tech crunch.

Get Strategic and Set Your own Blogging Goals

So where do I start and what do I  do first? And what do I do right now? First of all you have to figure out your goals, set your objectives and plans you want to reach with your site.

What does it mean to be thinking strategically? It means to identify the purpose of your site and start working smart with a plan and goal in  mind.

1. Determine where you want to go. Think about what you want to accomplish in the next year. Things that are important to you and goals you want to achieve.

You need to know what the definition of success. If you don’t have goals you will be like sand in the wind aimless in your blogging and won’t be accomplishing much.

2. Develop where you want to go. Create a roadmap for upcoming weeks and months.

Think about the steps you need to take where you want to go. Break the goals down into smaller and actionable practical steps that you need to take.

3. Take the first small step right away. When you know your goals and what you need to do to achieve them, you become more focused,efficient and strategic in your activities.

That will then lead you to the right decisions and will help you make right choices.

In terms of goal setting and planning I learned the smart system in the Army and it still works for me.

  • S – Make your goals specific
  • M- Make your goals measurable.
  • A-  Make your goal attainable.
  • R –Make your goals relevant
  • T- Make your goals time-bound.

Please read  The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris  for more ideas.


Time flies by guys days might feel long but a year is short and sooner than you think it is time to do a yearly review.

If you don’t have a plan and don’t know your priorities the year might go by without you feeling any growth and without achieving any big goals.

You have to sit down and make these decisions for yourself this will put you in control of your time and life.

Figure out meaningful metrics and key performance indicators (kpi) that are aligned with  your goals.

Repeat visitors and time spent on site are so much valuable than than page impressions  for many sites. They show that content works and gets people engaged. It shows quality of your content.

Read one of my 1st Post  the Beginner’s Guide.

The following are 27 goals and ideas I have set for small milestones and tiny wins. I am going after and if you’re in your first year you do too. Some are easier than others.

  1. Registering your own domain name.
  2. Setting up a new wordpress site.
  3. Getting a personalized site design.
  4. Setting up your about page with information and contact form.
