Set Small and ACHIEVABLE Goals

I find that most people turn to the internet with the expectation of replacing a regular full time salary instantly. Their list of goals look pretty much like this.

1.Decide to start an online business

2. Become rich

Hey guys you need to throw that notion out the window and understand that building an online business from home takes time.

There’s no solution out there that’s going to make you money instantly regardless of how much you invest. You need to set small achievable goals and build from there.

Here’s a much better more realistic goals list for you.

1.Decide to start your online business

2.Begin training, understand the terminology

3.Do some research and find topics to write about.

4.Build your first website.

5.Create articles to fill your website.

6.Learn how to get these articles listed in Google.

7. Attract visitors and grow traffic.

8.Connect with advertisers

9.Start making $1/ day

10. Start building a newsletter.

11.Discover new ways of getting people to your site.

12.Grow to $5/ a day

13.Connect with readers by creating a Facebook page and a Twitter account.

14.Increase income to $ 10 a day

15.Guest blog and increase your online presence.

16.Aim to break $ 1,000 per month.

17.Create your own product to sell

18.Start new projects and expand.

19.Celebrate your success.

As you can see this is a much more defined list with achievable goals in there.

It could take days or weeks to move between each list item,but the point is that you’re always accomplishing something and progressing forward instead of just staring at one seemingly unachievable goal.

Make sense ?

Let’s be clear I do use Instagram but not as much as I should . So today’s share should answer questions about Instagram titled ” How to Use Instagram to Boost Your Blog “ Let’s Roll.

Facebook  bought Instagram for $ 1 billion in 2012 and today it is one of the most important social networks.

29% of women use Instagram and only 22% of men. A lot of people are having great success with Instagram especially in fashion,tourism,food and the auto industry.

But all companies and blogs can benefit from marketing with Instagram. So I encourage everyone to start testing these strategies which I have used.

Learn basic Instagram strategies before you start sharing content

That’s the reason for this post today titled “ADZbuzz Ublock adblocker Review Is it the Solution? ”

Advertising is very consistent across  the  different channels.  For example you expect the  basketball game you’re watching to be interrupted by brief commercial breaks.

Online advertising is a totally different beast more often than not you get sites that stick ads into every nook and cranny and make use of every little space.

The most basic form of adblocking  just simply ignoring ads just doesn’t cut it  anymore.

On one hand ad blocking is very beneficial to users because it improves their overall experience.

On the other hand to alot of bloggers and websites advertising brings in the money that goes toward operating cost. Without ads we wouldn’t be able to read content for free.

Users don’t want to see annoying ads. Web publishers are losing money because of those adblockers. Companies are spending large amounts on advertisement which does not work efficiently as they want.

This new ADZbuzz Ublock adblocker sounds like the solution where all three parties win.

Let’s dig in and check it out:

Name:   ADZbuzz Ublock adblocker

Website:   adzbuzz.com

Owner:     ADZbuzz Ltd.

Price:    Free

 

 

Who is ADZbuzz Ltd.

ADZbuzz Ltd. is made up of a team of developers who have been working together for over a year.

They have finally completed their concept as a part of their bigger aim to solve a billion dollar problem for publishers. ADZ buzz is also the creator and owner of ADZcoin cryptocurrency.

 

What will You Get with ADZbuzz Ublock?

1.No more tracking cookies

2.No more malicious ads

3.Faster web surfing

4.No more exceeding data limits.

5.Buying selling and advertising in one place.

 

ALL  the Facts about ADZbuzz  Ublock adblocker 

  • Publishers lose billions every year because of adblocking software.
  • The new Ublock functions the same way Google generates its revenue,it centralizes all advertising campaigns into pay per click shopping engine.
  • Users can surf the internet 100% ad free after installing it  and are able to support their favorite publishers all while saving money.
  • The new ADZbuzz adblocker is easy for everyone to use.
  • For publishers they can install the WP plugin on their websites and earn money just like they would with regular ads.
  • For advertisers the new ad blocker will still allow them to stand out among the competition and help build up their reputation while advertising where it makes sense to do so.

My Conclusion:

I’m very excited about  the ADZbuzz Ublock  adblocker it seems like a huge winner.  And it’s a win-win situation for everybody. It’s definitely a great fit for users,publishers and advertisers.

Let’s hope they  have solved this $22 billion dollar problem. The best part of this solution is that this adblocker is 100% free.  Check  it out guys. I highly encourage you to Download Ublock adblocker FREE.

That’s gonna be it for today guys make sure you leave me comments about this post,Do you just ignore those ads ? or you don’t mind them?  Also make sure you share this post with family,friends and your social media outlets thanks guys take care.

 

 

Millionaire Biz Pro Review Is it Legit or a Scam ?

  Hello to all my readers it’s a cold snowy morning today in Iowa. It’s the chief blogger Darrell back at you with all my investigative tools in hand.

Millionaire Biz Pro has been drawing alot of attention lately from my readers and over 40 of you have asked me are they legit and worth your time that’s why today’s post titled “Millionaire Biz Pro Review Is it Legit or a Scam?”

Nobody’s handing out $100 bills anymore. Making good money takes hard work and persistence whether offline or online. Some companies will tell you they have the secret sauce. One of those companies is Millionaire BIZ Pro.

They claim they hold the key to online success . Well I decided to check them out get the facts to see what they’re about nobody shits on my readers,Not if I can help it.  Let’s find out .

Name : Millionaire Biz Pro

Website: www.millionairebizpro.com

Price: $ 47 to sign up then $34.95/month after that + upsells galore

Owner: Derek Marshall

What is Millionaire Biz Pro ?

Millionaire Biz Pro provides their users with programs designed to increase traffic so you can make money from affiliate offers.

The owner of Millionaire Biz Pro is Derek Maxwell and he started the site Feb 2016.

They supposedly help you create an autoresponder to generate leads and traffic to your website so you can make money automatically without having to do any work.

Pros and Cons of Millionaire Biz Pro Pros

  • Easy to create a website.
  • They have some video tutorials.

Cons

  • The cost can become very expensive.
  • They lie in the video (you have to do alot of work).
  • They try tirelessly to upset you on other systems .
  • There is no one to help you.

  Who Is Millionaire Biz Pro For?

They say anyone can use this system ( beginner- expert ) However if you are just starting out in the online world you will have no idea what you are doing. They try to explain what to do but are very confusing.

They don’t even tell you what you are going to be selling. Maybe they just want you to promote Millionaire Biz Pro which is just bad training.

If you are a beginner stay away. If you are an expert keep doing what you are doing.

  How Does Millionaire Biz Pro Really Work?

They claim they can generate internet traffic to help you make money online. That traffic is sent through about 15 affiliate sites in order to generate cash.

Everyone who signs up gets to build their own website and is given several tools which they can use to improve profits.

The promotional video from Millionaire Biz Pro assures you that once you make your site money will just start pouring in.

According to different people over the course of the video,their lives have been improved greatly with the help of Millionaire Biz Pro.

Sounds too good to be true right? It is and if you want to forego the bs check out my # 1 work from home recommendation.

How Much Does Millionaire Biz Pro Cost? Millionaire Biz Pro Software

  • This product will cost $97 but you can get it to go down to $17 if you try to leave the site.
  • Includes a customizable website,traffic generator and training videos.

Basic Membership plan

  • Cost $ 37.95 per month in addition to the $17–$47 you already spent.
  • This plan will help get your affiliate sites off the ground.

Platinum Membership plan

  • One time payment of $197 but it will go down to $97 if you try to leave the page
  • Gives you access to extra training videos
  • Gives you a social share button that helps bring in more traffic.

Webfire plan

  • Cost $397 a year in addition to the software expenses.
  • It will help your sites get off the ground and also generates free traffic.

Unfortunately there is NO FREE trial version of millionaire unlike my  Top FREE work from home recommendation. But they do offer a money back guarantee on the initial software. As long as you do it within the first 60 days you will get a full refund.

Is Millionaire Biz Pro Legitimate?

In my opinion Millionaire Biz Pro does not deliver what they claim they will. Given the numerous upsets and fake testimonials I would avoid Millionaire Biz Pro.

They appeal to people that are looking for fast money or are in desperate financial situations. I hope I stopped you from wasting money.

There are better options  like the  # 1 work from home recommendation and the top  writing course ( Write to 1k.com). Both of these  give you the opportunity to earn multiple streams of income which is very important to being successful online. So I encourage you to take advantage of them.

That’s going to be it for today  everybody. Let me know your experience with Millionaire Biz Pro  in the comment section below. And make sure you

Share this post to all your social media outlets.  I’m headed to the mall to finish my Christmas shopping ya’ll take care and stay warm.

Affilorama Review Is it Legit or a Scam?

Good morning  everybody a huge Friday shout out to my loyal readers (big cashers) it’s Darrell back at you wrapping this week up.

It’s a cold 21 degrees here in Iowa and we got 3 inches of snow last night,so it sure does look like Christmas. For the past two weeks I have been getting lots of questions about Affilorama.

So today I will review Affilorama and let you know what the deal is. So Let’s Roll this post is titled  Affilorama Review   Is it Legit or a Scam? “

 

 

Name:     Affilorama

Website Url   affilorama.com

Owner :  Mark Ling

Overall Rank:  8 out of 10

 

Overview

Affilorama was started by Mark Ling in 2005. It is an online business community built to teach people about affiliate marketing.

They are known to have good foundational training but unnecessary upsells. Unlike most work from home opportunities out there Affilorama actually updates their training.

In this Affilorama review, I’m going to cover all that you will need to know about Affilorama so you can determine if this business opportunity is for you.

Pros  vs. Cons

Pros

  • Free membership available and you can check it out before paying your hard earned money.
  • Solid and useful training courses
  • Access to one of the best internet marketing communities online

Cons

  • Lot of upsells that are confusing
  • The basic membership is limited and doesn’t give you all the tools to succeed online.
  • There is alot of pressure to upgrade your membership
  • Outdated training material within the system

 

Who Is Affilorama For?

They offer beginner,intermediate and advanced training. So there are many options depending on your online marketing budget.

Training within Affilorama

Affiliorama’s training starts with the basic program which combines videos and other online tools to follow step by step.

The training format will teach you the basics of affiliate or online marketing. Additionally there are a good many interviews with successful six-figure earners revealing some super tips and strategies.

The Affilorama Premium level offers additional training.

Additional tools include Affilorama Jetpack which is the customized website creation and hosting package and Affilorama Theme which is another version of that service.

Affilorama Support

Just like most internet based communities,the bulk of their support comes from within the community itself. Members helping members. That can be positive  but also negative.

Affilorama Pricing

While there is a free plan the premium membership begins around $67 per month–this membership package included the software needed, Limited access to their hosting platform, training materials and of course the community forums

AffiloBlueprint membership–Again one of the best around but come with a $197 one-time fee and then a monthly $67 thereafter. This membership package includes 13 lessons and 6 different theme for your website it’s a solid deal.

These products are quality but they are definitely more expensive than my # 1 ranked program for affiliate marketing training.

My Final Opinion

A good friend of mine is a member of this community and he loves it. This is a great product which offers  tools ,training and support.

It is indeed a solid online business opportunity and you can do well with it as your beginning point.

However because of the sheer number of upsells and some outdated training techniques it can be confusing to the beginner where to get started.

This is one program that should be approached with a well thought out plan of action and you should be starting with the very basics (premium membership).

If you decide to join then add additional tools and products if you feel comfortable enough and have a suitable budget for it.

Final Conclusion

Name: Affililorama

Owner: Mark Ling

Overall rank : 8 out of 10

Verdict:   LEGIT  ,Quality training with a couple flaws, expensive upsells

This is the course I took to jump start  my  online career.

Read this Top post  The Wealthy Affiliate Start-Up Course    I recommend this course  100%.

Well that’s going to be it for today Big Cashers. If you are a member or have a personal experience with Affilorama leave me the details below in the comment section.

Make sure you Share this post with your friends family and all of your social media outlets,it helps me out a lot.

Have a great weekend. Drive safe in that snow and take care.

How to Get Started with Pinterest for Blogging !

pinterest

Hello everybody especially my loyal readers (big cashers) it’s Darrell back at you on a cold chilly 21 degree Tuesday morning.  All of my regular readers know  my top go-to social media outlets are Facebook, Twitter and Google +.

I read a post on Shoutmeloud about the size of  traffic on Pinterest. I have learned the power of Pinterest so I have been using them much more and I AM going to show all my readers how to do the same. Today’s post is titled ” How to get started with Pinterest for Blogging.”

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a platform that allows users to share and save content to pinboards (also referred simply as boards) The social network has both a website and a mobile app and was launched in 2010 by co-founders Ben Silbermann ,Evan Sharp and Paul Sciarra.

Initially the website was available in a closed beta model, and users could join only by invitation until August 2012 when Pinterest opened to the public.

The platform has a unique demographic in that the majority of its more than 100 million active users are female  .( according to  Venture beat)

7 Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Followers !

How does Pinterest work?

To use Pinterest you first have to sign up for an account for business it’s really important that you make sure you specifically sign up for a business account.

It’s important to make this distinction  because business accounts while free like personal Pinterest accounts give you access to features to help your business thrive on the platform like analytics and other tools.

Read this helpful post 14 Simple Tips to a better Social Media Strategy!

 

Why Should You Use Pinterest for Blogging?

Pinterest has more than 100 million active users that make it one of the best social media platforms.

Of course it is still behind Twitter and Instagram’s 300 million and Facebook’s 1.5 billion. It’s a great social media platform for marketers and bloggers.

This is the course I took to jump start  my  online career.

Get Your Pinterest Terminology Down

1.Boards

Pinterest boards are buckets of categorized content. Each one contains content with similar interest For example one board might be “Facebook Marketing” while another captures content surrounding “Pinterest Tips for Newbies”

2.Secret Boards

Secret boards are the same as above except they’re secret. No one but you or anyone you’ve invited to pin with you is able to see your pins until you make the board public.

3. Group Boards

Group boards work the same as normal boards but have multiple winners sharing content within the board.

4.Pin

A pin is an image that you add to a board that links to an external webpage (an article,product page,blog post).

5. Repin

When you repin someone’s content you’re sharing it with all of your followers. It’s similar to a Facebook share or Twitter retweet. Its a way to say “Hey I really like this and I’m choosing to share it with my community.”

6. Comment and Likes

Comment and likes on Pinterest are no different than they are on Facebook. Find a pin you really like? Leave a comment or click “like”.

7. Pin it Button

The Pin it Button is a widget or plugin that can be added to your website. When someone visit your site and wants to pin your article they simply click on the button and share it to their account.

Step 2          Set up Pinterest BOARDS

Now it’s time to set up your initial Pinterest Boards. ( I suggest with 8) Naming your boards will be based on your keywords or phrases. Again think optimization Boards are searchable  so don’t miss an opportunity to get found through Pinterest Guided search.

 

  Getting Started — Pinterest Basics

Your first step is to create a business account

If you currently use a personal profile for your business you’re missing out on a bunch of awesome features the most important of which are;

  • analytics
  • promoted post

you won’t gain access to any of these features until you convert your personal account to a business account.

1.Login to your current or create a new account.

2.Go to Pinterest for Business and choose “Join as business”

3.Complete details about your business.

4. Read and accept if you agree to Pinterest Business Terms of Service and click “Create account.

Complete Your Profile on Your Biz Account

  • Upload your most recent logo
  • Choose your username this is your chance to brand your URL the way you’d like to see it.
  • Add your bio including keywords that are optimized for search
  • Add details that will connect people to you
  • Add your website. Remember Pinterest is a visual network–so think visual.

Verify Your Website

Without verification you won’t have access to Pinterest analytics.

Guys that’s going to be it for today. Make sure you join Pinterest  and take advantage of their traffic. With over 100 million people on this platform you can’t afford to ignore them.

They are not just for ladies. We will have an update about Pinterest very soon but I want everybody to get started and learn on the fly.

I want you to leave me comments below and let me know if you are a member of Pinterest and how it’s working out for you. I want  everybody to do me a huge favor and  Share this post.  Become an  Insider here and sign up FOR my updates. Thanks  very kindly ,stay warm and  take care.

Anyway today’s post is about all the online business books I read and enjoyed this year titled “12 Best Business Books I Read for the year.”

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.

51 Things to do that Will Make Your Website Soar !

eagle-1753002_1280

Good morning  everybody especially to my loyal readers (big cashers) it’s Darrell  back at you on a cold 33 degree Friday morning in Iowa.

For the last two weeks I have been getting lots of questions from new bloggers,intermediate bloggers and a lot of my friends who own businesses here in  Iowa.

All of them are looking for new ways to improve their websites.

This post is my attempt to combine all of the real world tips and some key strategies that that will definitely generate positive results if  applied correctly.

So Let’s Roll my first post in December is titled “51 Things to do that will Make Your Website Soar.”

 

1.Post Frequently

Posting frequently can boost your search engine traffic. Updating with useful content will definitely build your audience.

Writing with search engine optimization in mind helps getting noticed and indexed by Google.

Neil Patel of  quicksprout found that posting high quality post 6x per week (as opposed to 5) blog traffic  increased by 18.6%.  Find your number you post and stick with it.

Read this useful  post  The Wealthy Affiliate Start-Up Course    I recommend this course  100%.

2.Images

Even babies don’t like books with no pictures. Images don’t just make your blog look pretty, they also help people find you in search engine listings. Humans are very visual must I say anymore.

In internet marketing for years now e-books have been used as the main tool to get people to subscribe to your  email.

3.Focus on long-tail keywords.

The days of focusing on a single keyword for each page are long gone. Make sure your post include all the relevant terms and phrases related to your topic.

4.Focus your energy on strategies that are working

You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing. Study your analytics to see your main  traffic drivers,and focus on your energy on these areas.

5.Ask a well-known blogger to guest post on your site.

They will likely share the post with their audience,driving traffic to your site.

6.Submit Your Blog to Search Engines

It’s a must get on the radar for the two main search engines, Google and Yahoo by submitting your blog’s URL to them.

Most search engines provide a “submit” link (or something similar) to notify the search engine of your new blog,so those search engines will crawl it and include your pages in their results.

7. Feed Your Blog Content to Your Social Media Profiles

Use a tool like Twitterfeed to automatically publish links to your blog post on your  Twitter and Facebook profiles

. Also take the time to set up your blog post to automatically publish on your Linked In, Google + and other social media profiles

8.Add “Follow Me ” Social Media Icons to Your Blog

Add social media icons to your blog’s sidebar writing people to connect with you on Twitter, Facebook and your other social media profiles.

If your blog content is fed to those accounts then you’ve created another way for people to access your content not actually visiting your blog.

9. Work on Your Headlines

Your headlines are what will get people in the door especially when you share your blog post on social media.

Make sure you spark interest and clearly articulate the benefit to your readers.
