How to save money in every days life

Have you thought about how much money you spent each year on things that are not really necessary, or where the money is really just waisted? This post will show you 21 tips on how to save money. Stay on you will be surprised how easy it is.

Well, when I decluttered our home, I actually realized how much money I spend on things I never use or just there to collect dust. ( I hate dusting )

I am not talking about only physical things also virtual and digital stuff you collect just to have it, but you never read it or use it.

Money comes in and money goes out.

Money is so easy to spend, and it is hard to save. You can do it you just need a plan and be aware of where your money is going. Know your numbers. 

I will share with you 22 money-saving tips. I discovered them when I started to declutter my home and my life and since that time I kept the promise to myself.

Ok, some tips are a bit more difficult to follow through but they are worth every Euro.

Know your numbers and keep track of things you buy and sign up for.

Each Year I will take three days and evaluate all the things I signed up for or I bought. Believe it or not but I still have things I buy out of impulse or mood, sign up for things I do not need and use only once. I guess we are all humans.

I thought I will share this with you, and if you can relate to it, then start and see how it goes for you. Any saving is great.

How I saved in one single year 17.542,96 Euros.

All these tips are based on my own experience. You can change them and check on items you are able to use and cut down. They might be different from mine. Use what suits you. See how much you can save. You will be surprised.

Learn how to save money

These savings are calculated in Euros.

Those are the things I have cut down, and I adjusted to digital life. In some cases, I ran out of space.

Just sit down and look through your bank and credit card statements and evaluate your spending in what you need and use.  

The things on what I did cut down are just things where I can honestly say I do not need them anymore, and they collect dust either in a physical way or digital way.

 

Hopefully, you can take something away from this.

Tip.1 Magazines Subscriptions

I got rid of my magazine subscriptions as they were pilling up and most of those magazines, I did not read all of them and that was always a reason not to throw them as I will read them one day. ( Believe me, this day never comes)

When I need more space for them I normally moved them from room to room.  Eventually, you run out of space. I decided with a heavy heart that I cancel all my subscriptions. 

Does that sound familiar.

Well, it took me some time to get over this habit. I cancelled all my 4 subscriptions and that is around €132 year.

Now if I do want to read a magazine, I will buy it, but that happens now seldom as I search now a lot on the internet.

Tip 2. Save Money with Landline and Mobile Phones.

Don’t get scared I kept my mobile phone but gave up our landline. 10 years ago we all used the fixed-line but now we all use mobile phones.

That is a saving of € 240 a year said €20 a month.

So we cancelled the landline. It was a funny feeling as we had the landline for 30 Years and you wonder if it is ok. It was part of our life. But when I think back we never used it for the last 5 years. We all have a mobile and we call each other on the mobile.

Tip3. Books Hard Cover and Soft Cover

Books. Since I had to give away so many books for the reason of space (I do not have the space to keep them all). I love books.

I took the ones I wanted to keep and brought them to the Library and if I need a book or want to read one I borrow them now from the library. I also have a kindle, but I do not download each month 4 or 5 books as I used to do, I use now the borrow function and give it back after I am finished.

Sometimes I look if I can find them in a pdf and if not and I really need the book I might buy or download it. Don’t get me wrong I still buy books but only if I really need them.

That is a saving of €29.99 a month. What totals to € 359.88

Tip 4. Digital TV, Netflix and Cable TV

Cable TV. I got rid of our Cable TV. I used to have Cable, Sky TV and Netflix. We seldom watch cable and Sky anymore. Plus the service or programs they offer are not really up to date and lots of repeats.

I kept Netflix as this is what we watch now mainly. Cable TV is around €37.50 a month and Sky TV we paid €78.94 a month with all the English channels and of course sports channels. ( 4 Boys in the family)

That is a big saving over the year. €1.397.28

Tip5. Bottled Water and Soft Drinks

I stopped buying bottled water for us and bottled beverages. I used to buy on a weekly base bottled water and other soft drinks. I have a water filter but never really used it, On top of it I also bought bottled water on the go.

When I go to work and grab a quick lunch I bought with the sandwich a bottle of water.

It was more of a habit than a necessity. Sometimes I bought a soft drink with a sandwich or snack. It was a weekly regular occurrence.

I have don’t do this anymore as there is too much plastic already around. I use now a water bottle from home ( Glass bottle) which is also more environment-friendly.

I put it in my bag and have it with me all the time. My family is now used to the water filter and believe me it was not easy to change. I had big complaints from my husband and kids.

The water saves me around €90 a month what is a yearly saving of €1080. Soft drinks the saving is small as I only bought them for myself and that was around €15 a month.  This is a saving of €180 a year.

Tip Nr. 6 Save Money with Eating Out and Order in.

This is a big one for us. As when kids where younger we went 2 or 3 times out for dinner or lunch on weekends. Now our kids are Teens and do not want to join us.

When you live close to downtown it is so easy to take the easy way and eat out instead of cooking yourself. We still go out occasionally but not as often as we used too.

We also don’t order food so often anymore. As both I and my husband has changed our diet we prefer to prepare the food we eat our self.

One of our children started to become vegan so we adjusted our diet too. I have to say it was not easy but after a while doing it and sticking to the plan and the side effect is weight loss, it feels good. We did not stop eating we just eat now more healthy.

We also do not have dessert with each meal now. I still bake cakes but with less sugar and butter. 

Don’t worry we do not starve; we just eat with more consciousness. We cut down half of our eating out with friends and kids and that makes a huge saving for us.

We do save on a weekly base now €45 Euro. It is a yearly saving of €2340.

Tip Nr. 7 Meat and Plant-based Diet.

We eat now a more plant-based diet. My family especially my sons love meat since they are teens now, they changed to a less meat diet.

I do not buy so much seafood, lamb and beef anymore. We are not vegan we just cut down on meat. Instead of 4 times a week we only eat it now twice a week.

If you are wondering why we do this, well I wanted to support my kids in their decision so they can stick to it easier. I am happy that they think of what they eat and what effect it has on their body.

I would estimate my savings to be roughly twenty-five euros a week because I’m not buying red meat like lamb, and I’m not buying seafood as much so that twenty-five euros a week amounts to €1300  in the year.

Tip Nr. 8 E-Mails and Subscriptions

When I declutter I also declutter my digital items. Like my mailbox, all the ebooks I downloaded I thought I need, and I delete all the Spam emails plus the offers I get sent on a regular base from the companies I bought something.

I unsubscribe from things and emails that no longer interest me or tempt me to many times with buying. You know when you sign up for those free gift emails from stores, in the end, they sent you all those promotional emails where they ask you to buy things.

I am sure you do get them too, 40% off, 50% off, buy two for the price of one. That is super tempting. If you are like me then you will buy when they catch you at that moment.

I bought so many times things I did not need or did not serve a purpose. I was just buying for the sake of buying. Honestly, some are really good at selling you these things. It was just buying for the sake of buying. I would put my estimate at €60 a month.

What brings it to around € 720 in the year.

Tip Nr. 9 Wine, Beer and Alcohol

We do not drink as often as we used to. When we get drinks at a restaurant in a bit more expensive city like Munich you pay easily for a cocktail €8 and up, believe me, you are shocked how fast it adds up.

When you are getting older you enjoy a drink at home but not as often as before. We are trying to set an example for our kids that they can see and experience happiness without drinks. We have occasions where we do celebrate but those are than our family occasions.

When you change your diet and become more conscious about what you put into your body you reduce the alcohol too. I also need to say we do not enjoy it so much anymore. Restaurants have a huge markup too.

I would say our saving for the whole year goes into an estimate of €50 a month. Which is €600 a year?

Tip Nr. 10 How to save money with Clothing, Handbags and Shoes.

I have built a more intentional wardrobe. I do not spend a lot of money on clothing, handbags, shoes that I do not truly love and wear.

how to save money with handbags, shoes and clothing

I also was a sale shopper and I thought because it is on sale I must have it. That is now in the past. I will not buy those great shoes just because they are on sale, and the shoes are not so comfortable but would look good with a certain outfit.

In the end, I never wear the shoe or if I do it will be only around 2 or 3 times and then I will keep them in the cupboard and they get forgotten.

I will then give away shoes what are hardly worn. When I buy cloth now I really think about them and when I can see myself wearing them I will buy them. I even have this habit now that I will ask “Will this improve my success in business ( I am in a Management position in a leading advertising company). Don’t laugh and no it did not go to my head.

There are clothes like a beautiful blouse that brings out your skin colour and it will lift up your energy and you spread this uplifting energy around you. I have special clothing for important contracts as when I wear them I feel so good and uplifted.

My mood improves a lot and it brings out that glow. People around me feel it too and that means customers will also feel it and the signing of a contract is easier done.

I would estimate my savings from not buying those impulse purchases… not buying extra handbags and shoes…that would be roughly €120 a month which is €1440 in one year.

Tip Nr. 11 Travelling and Holiday a big saving or a big loss.

I loved to travel and have vacations in other countries. This is a big item for me but it might not be for you. Through my career, I am travelling now a lot and before I had this job I had at least 2 times a year vacation with my family.

Our kids are now teens and they rather hang out with their friends and go on camping trips with friends than with parents. We have still one rule and that is one vacation a year we will spend together.

So, reducing our vacations to one a year, and not joining my husband on different business trips saves us a lot of money each year.

I enjoy Stay vacations now. We used to spend thousands of dollars a year on 2 or 3 vacations and now we only take one vacation with family. I value now the one vacation more and I enjoy the stay vacation.

I can say we save roughly in one year around €2800. This might not be for you if you enjoy travelling and see different countries go for it. Look out for last-minute deals those are the best ones and the prices are also good.

Tip Nr. 12 Save Money with Extensive cleaning products.

See the advertising for this great mop that you can press out without getting your hands wet.

Well, I bought the mop with 2 new mopping pads. I bought disposable products like wet wipes, paper towels, Swiffer pads wet and dry sheets, furniture wipes, kitchen wet wipes etc.

I bought all of them and got a shock how much they add up. I want to do my part for the environment and now I do buy reusable items and there are different and efficient ways to use your cleaning products and items.

For one thing, I got a steam mop set that I can also use in the shower. I do not need any more expensive cleaning items and the steam mop is a great addition as it also eliminates germs especially when you have pets. I would estimate my saving of around €300 in the year.

Tip 13. How to save money with electricity.

Another thing I have done and implemented is I do not use the dryer so often anymore. I use the dryer now only for underwear and towels. We also changed our light bulbs to energy-saving LED bulbs.

We switch our electronic item now off instead of standby. Our Heating system and Waterheater is time programmed and when we are all at work our Heating and Water heater is in saving mode.

You can program this on your heating system and on water heater system.

Ok, it does not sound a lot but you will see it at the end of the year on your electricity bill. For us 4-person household it is a saving of roughly €250 a year.

Now that’s not a lot compared to all the other things I’ve talked about, but the fact that I’m using the dryer less means that my clothes last me longer so that’s actually a big saving which I haven’t counted in the full savings of seventeen thousand euros. I’ve talked about earlier.

It also helps the environment. It feels good to be part of being able to do something every day for our planet.

Tip. 14 Save money with a Home Cinema

As I mention before I love to watch now more movies at home. Since we have Netflix the kids and we create our own movie theatre at home. We use a projector and throw the Netflix movie on the wall. We have popcorns and drinks.

You can do the same with your TV. Popcorns are easily made and it is so much better as a Movie Theatre.

Before we as a family went almost every second weekend for a movie theatre.

We don’t go so often now anymore to the movies and my husband and I enjoy watching a movie at home. When you get the popcorn the drinks and the movie ticket it all ads up. I can say we save now around €400 a year.  

Tip 15. How I saved money with Meal Planning.

I am not talking about preparing a meal. I am talking about meal planning.

What is meal planning?

It is simple you are making a plan for the whole week and then you go grocery shopping based on your list.

how to save money with meal planning

I never did this in the past, and I went to the grocery store and bought what I thought we need. Of course, by the end of the week, some items went bad and I did throw them out which was a waste of money.

We all know that when you are hungry you buy more things. The Supermarkets also normally move things around so you are going through the aisles and buying more things.

I also have to admit I was buying to much stuff. I bought junk what no one eats, they wanted to eat but they did not until I had to throw the things out then only they wanted to eat them. Now with a list, I stick to it, and I do not buy all those things.

One plus is that I do not waste food. I can say the saving is around €65 a month what adds up to € 780 a year.

Tip 16. Obligatory Gift giving

 Don’t get me wrong when you read this, I do not say you should not gifts to family and friends.

I underline the word obligatory because I’m not saying I don’t give gifts. All I am saying is that I will not give gifts that I am obligated to give that I feel that I need to but I don’t really want to.

That’s what I mean by obligatory gifts. I find that the obligatory gift-giving is an endless cycle. I give someone a gift and they’re obliged to give me a gift and then I then I’m obliged to give them a gift and then that cycle keeps on going on, and I honestly do not want to be part of that cycle.

I strongly believe that if you give a gift from your heart and you truly want to give them a gift not because you are supposed too.

Just look around your home how many items you got as an obligatory gift and you just decorate your home because you got this gift and you do not want to upset the person who gave it to you.

That is only my view, this is up to you. You do not need to agree with me and depend on the size of friends and family the saving amount might be big or small.

I save roughly €450 a year.

Tip 17. How much money can you save with Coffee and Snacks?

When I worked at the downtown office we had a star bucks just beside our office building. I bought each day a coffee, or sometimes a caramel latte depends on my mood.

Of course also a muffin or a small sweet pastry that goes with it. I do not do this anymore and it has a couple of reasons.

1. I cut down on my coffee consumption.

2nd. The sweet snacks go on my hips.

Especially when you are with colleagues you have the coffee a sweet pastry and don’t get me wrong I do enjoy it, and I do it once in a while but not every day anymore. I enjoyed it but no doubt I enjoy more being in good shape.

I would estimate the savings to be roughly €50 a month which is €600 a year.

Tip 18. Saving Tips for your Car Insurance.

If you driving a car to evaluate from time to time your Insurance.

We have car insurance and after being with the Insurance company for 15 years we decided to change.

We made the car insurance with our friend and for 15 years we never had any claim. My sister has also car insurance with a different company and she gets every 5 years to claim to free a return of €200.

When I compared my insurance with hers, we figured out that we overpaid our insurance. We pay €596 we have a very low percentage and my sister pays half.

We decided to change the Insurance and have now a saving of roughly €285 a year. I know does not sound much but calculate over the 15 years we overpaid the money we could have saved.

Tip 19. Packed lunches and snacks.

When you work for a company and they have a canteen you will go there and get your food there.

After a while, you can not see that food anymore and you get used to the menu. I used to memorize the whole menu for the month. I stopped that one too now and I make my own lunches and snacks.

For the reasons that we do live and eat healthier now and from some of the food in the canteen, I get heartburn.

Packing my own lunches and the lunch and snack for my husband I would say gives us a roughly saving of €70 a month for both of us our kids go random one-day lunch pack one-day school canteen.

This makes a saving of €840 a year.

I want to stretch one thing do you realize that all the big items on saving are actually food.

Food can be when you eat out, or ordering in cost a lot and sums up quickly to a bigger amount without realizing it. It has helped my budget a lot but it also helped to improve my health and weight.

I feel so much better now, and I have so much more energy to do things. What I love about is that I am in control of what I eat.

Tipp 20. The saving on Souvenirs.

When I used to go on holidays twice a year I always brought back Souvenirs and little Nik Nak I thought is cute or useful from that particular country. It is only small money but another physical item that collects dust.

Well over the years a lot has accumulated and all those things need dusting and need to have space. I stopped buying and bringing home these things.

Souvenirs for me is only a small amount it is around €150 a year.

how to save money for life

Tipp Nr. 21 Stationery, Wrapping Paper, Scotch and Duct Tape

Do you know when you need a pen or an envelope you can not find them or you have all the variety but the ones you need is not there? You are then forced to buy the thing you need. Well even it looks small money but as you know small things add up.

For example Printer cartridges I always had one spare at home and as I do not print very often anymore, when I have to change the printer cartridge most of the time it is dried out.

I normally print most of the time black and white so my colour cartridges are not used very often and eventually they dry out.

Another example of duct tape and scotch tape, I use it a few times a year when I pack my presents to send overseas to friends. I will always stock up on them as they are also good lint brush removers or pet hairs on your cloth.

I stopped stocking up to many as after a while the glue is getting less and less so I only stock up with the max of 2.

I have one stationary draw now and in there is all nicely sorted on what I need. I save for that arrangement alone around €30 a month. That ad up to €360 a year.

Tipp Nr. 22 Do you really need a Gym Membership?

For Years I had a Gym Membership and I did not go there regularly. Especially in Summertime I hardly ever went. But the monthly fee I needed to pay.

In Summertime I did a lot of jogging outside and went swimming in the morning to the nearby public pool. That did cost me extra the entrance for the pool.

Now I take 10x Cards and can go when I want without having to pay the monthly fee. Yes, the cards are more expensive but it saves me a month around €44.90 plus the shakes and drinks I was than buying in the gym.  That makes saving on €538,80.

When you look at all those things they really add up in a year. I saved over the year

€ 17542.96  this is a great saving.

4 Common PPC Mistakes and How to Avoid Them. Get your PPC Campaign right the first time.

Pay Per Click Advertising

Blog written by Josh Wardini Co-Founder of Serpwatch.

Make no mistakes; Pay-per-Click (PPC) is one of the most effective digital marketing strategies available today. Generally speaking, this marketing tactic requires businesses to pay a certain fee whenever their ad gets clicked.

4 common mistakes with PPC Ads

PPC helps promote a brand’s awareness and also increases conversion. According to a study, Google Ads cover a network of more than 2 million websites and apps. This extensive coverage gives businesses the chance to reach more potential customers with PPC.

If you intend using PPC to market your products or services, it’s essential to learn that as rewarding as it is, the road to success could be bumpy due to some mistakes that you can easily avoid if you follow the steps we recommend in this article.

Here are four common PPC mistakes and how to avoid them.

Not Hiring A Good Copywriter

Good writing is essential when creating your ad copy. Your copy should be persuasive and free from grammatical or spelling errors. It should also be engaging.

Most business owners choose to create the ad copy themselves because they wish to cut costs. In most cases, the result is a poor ad copy. Hiring a good copywriter to get the job done will go a long way to contribute to the success of your PPC campaign.

An Irrelevant Landing Page

When a user clicks on your ad, the user is led straight to your landing page. If it turns out the content of your landing page doesn’t match with the promise made on your ad, the user immediately exits your landing page.

Google will waste no time to give a poor-quality score to your ads and reduce its exposure. Worst of all, you’ll have to pay for a click that led to no conversion.

That said, ensure that your landing page and the promises made on your ads match correctly, as this will increase your chances of conversion by 50%.

Not Using the Right Geo-Location

Those new to PPC often make the mistake of not optimizing their ad for the right geographical location.

Your ads showing up in the wrong geo-location could fetch you a penalty from Google. When users get to your landing page and leave after a few seconds, a poor user experience signal is sent to Google, which acts accordingly.

Your ad should have more exposure to a location where your potential customers reside. If most of your customers come from your locality or country, it’s best to have more exposure in that location.

Targeting the Wrong Keywords

A PPC campaign with no basis on proper keyword research will fail. Understand that keywords are the heart of your ad campaign.

A PPC ad should contain keywords that match what your target audience is searching for. Not every keyword is good, and you should not include irrelevant ones in your ad. PPC might not be SEO, but still, a lot of attention is dedicated to keywords.

For an effective PPC campaign, it’s best to work with long-tail keywords as they perform better.

Conclusion

PPC advertising is a great digital marketing strategy. Those who are just striking out as entrepreneurs can significantly benefit from using this technique. Just make sure to avoid the common mistakes that ruin most PPC endeavours, and you’ll be fine.

What Is The Best Way To Make Money Online? The 10 best and free programs for active and passive income

Become a Millionaire

10 Legit Ways Of Making Money Online.  

So you are at a point where you need to see some income? Your blog or website is not doing so well, and you are running slowly out of passion and of cash $$.
Make Money online Let’s make money online.

Yes, you know that you actually can make money online,…

but you have not just yet figured it out how those $$$$$ flow into your life. Right.

What is the best way to make money online? I have asked myself this many times. 

What you need is a computer, phone or tablet and of course Internet access.
I will show you 9 websites where you can actually make cash, or if you are really serious some real good Money. Are you excited yet, Yes… then let’s get started.

How much money can I make in one day? 

On some of the Websites, you can actually make up to 100 Dollars a day or even more.

The part I liked most is that you do not need to quit your 9 to 5 Job. You can do it in your Free Time.

Two distinct ways of Making Money on the Internet

The first is an active Income.
It is like your regular 9-5 Job. You only get paid for the work you do.
If you do not work, you don’t make money it is as simple as that.

The second way is through Passive Income.
This is my favourite Method because, with passive Income, all you do is put in the workforce once, and the Money, in theory, should keep rolling in, without you having to do any more work other than maybe promoting what you have made, or in some cases what other people have made.
Let’s get rolling ….

1.Upworks.com

Upwork.com a way to make money online
Upworks.com
is a website for freelancers.

With Upwork you are making active income. Businesses and Individuals post services on Upwork that they like to outsource such as article writing, video editing, app development, coding, and so much more.

There are tons of jobs and services being outsourced on Upwork. The beauty of all that is it is a low barrier of entry, and you just have to be good at something.

If there is something, you are good at maybe graphic design or coding or just about any skill, head over to Upwork and start making some money.

A Tip when you are considering signing up for Upwork.

That will drastically increase your likelihood of ever receiving job offers, from potential clients.
Displaying your best work or highlighting specific experience can and will help you stand out.

2. YouTube 

Many people know this, but not many take advantage of it. If you are considering getting into YouTube to make money, make sure you understand one thing clearly.
youtube secrets course Thanks to the new rules, if you are planning on starting a brand-new channel from scratch, you first have to reach the YouTube minimum threshold to get monetized.

Which means you need 4000 watch hours, and 1000 subscribers in the last 12 months.

Once you reached that, you can get monetized.

The more views you are getting, the more money you can expect to make, and also you get more subscribers.

6 Tips For Social Media And Network Marketing. The Hidden Secrets About Social Media Networks.

Social Media vs Social Network

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Social Media Marketing in 2019 is going to be different than in 2018 and all other years before.

Why? Because Social Media is changing and some of the social media networks realize there is a potential Market in the Social Network and Marketing Niche.

6 Tips to make you a better marketer, a better entrepreneur and create more engaging content with your audience.

Social Network Marketing

Social Network and Marketing is a subject that changes far too often. There is secret to Social Network Marketing, and many marketers know it, but only a few using it and execute it.   

1.Facebook Ads Platform all you need to know.

Facebook Ads are perhaps the best form of online advertising around today. There is not one marketer who has not heard of Facebook ads. When used efficiently and strategically it is a great tool to use for placing ads.

Facebook has over two billion users around the world and the Facebook platform collects so much data from these users, yes including you and me.

You can leverage that data to your advantage to reach potential customers and clients of your business.

However, the key is to run targeted ads on Facebook, and you can do that by building what is known as a custom audience through the Facebook Ads Manager Platform.

There are a few things you can do here…
One of it is if you have a CRM (Customer Relation Management ) of any kind or if you have an email list you can import that data right into Facebook.

Any time you run ads even if your ad budget is as little as five to ten dollars you can ensure that those ads that you run are seen by the right audience.

See how easy it is to make these common mistakes.

The biggest mistake marketers make is they just throw money out at Facebook and not running targeted ads whatsoever. Running successful Ads require skills and knowledge.

If you are a real estate agent think about running those ads to target first – time home buyers or people that might potentially be looking to buy a house.

You have the power of that data right at your fingertips. Use it.

  • When you run a Facebook Ad you need to know what is your objective.

  • Is it to buy clicks,
  • is it to purchase engagement,
  • is it to buy views,
  • is it to buy leads,
  • make sure that you are targeted with what your objective is in addition to your audience.

Once again when you are spending money on Facebook Ads you should not just throw your money because you want to get more views on a video, or want to get the necessary comment to that video, what you want to get is buyers or conversions.
Be clear about your objective, and it is tailored to what your end game is.

In case you want to get more leads or to get more conversions.

You can use more than one social media network but you should know the rules, and you should master them.

2. Use Instagram and Twitter as Search Engines. What?

Twitter.

Let’s face it these social networks nowadays provide end users with a lot of data and easy access to reach people.
You can go on Twitter right now, and type in any search phrase.
Twitter sharesIf you want to work with any business, you can type in their executive and or company name and find what you are looking for.

If you are a creator or an influencer and you want to get their attention say Companies like Nike, Puma or Addidas, you can go on Twitter and type in “at Nike “and click on people that come up with the search term “at Nike” in their profile on Twitter.
Try it out…

Instagram MarketingInstagram

The same thing applies to Instagram, you can use hashtags to run searches for people that are speaking about specific topics.

If you are let’s say an SEO expert, you can type in SEO help on Twitter, and you can see anyone that’s talking about this particular topic, swoop in and offer them to help them out.

That’s the power of using Twitter and even Instagram for search.

A Quick Tip

Going forward in 2019 make sure that as you are creating Content and building relationships on these platforms that you are also using them as search engines.

3. Another Tip is that you should share your Content on third Party Content Platforms.

So for social networks and Marketing purpose, you should put the emphasis into contributing Content on third-party platforms, versus your own native website or your own native channels.

Ohhh …I know what you are thinking now and you rightly ask isn’t the game to drive people back to your website? The answer is yes and no …. What??

Content is KingIf you are trying to grow your personal brand as a thought leader in your industry, and if you are trying to get more views on your Content yes you can drive people to your website, and now you are fighting an uphill battle of sending people to a channel that you are responsible for driving traffic to.

What you can do is create Content on established social networks and platforms like say, Medium, Blog Lovin, LinkedIn, you can apply for being a contributor on different blogs that are relevant to your industry.

Understand the game.

By creating Content on this 3rd party platforms now, you are tapping into the benefit of the traffic that visits that websites.
For example :
Many of you reading this blog right now on Bloglovin, or on Entrepreneur.com where I am an active contributor.

The Entrepreneur.com is an iconic brand with over a million followers and subscribers on social media in addition to visitors that go to their website.

In short, what I am trying to say is as a thought leader in marketing and social media networking you can either try to drive people from say Instagram over to your own website or instead you can contribute Content for an established incredible news media outlet like Entrepreneur.com and tap into the reach that they provide.

A piece of good advice to all of you out there is, start focusing on creating Content on 3rd party platforms.
The platforms you choose should be established and give you access and reach to a bigger to a greater audience.

4. Thousands have the same problem as you struggle with getting organic engagement?

If you struggle with getting organic engagement in any social media networks think, about starting your own Private Mastermind Group.

Can be a Facebook Group that is private like Social Media Masterminds.
Does not matter if it is …

  • a Whats App Chat,
  • a We Chat group,
  • a Private Group on Twitter which allows you to Create private DM groups with up to 50 people.

Start a private group so you can bring likeminded professionals and colleagues just like you into your own space.

By creating your own mastermind group, you can control the conversations and steer them in a way where if you have Content that is fresh and relevant for the audience.

You can share directly with those others say group members without coming across as being self-promotional.

Choose your team wisely in network marketingYou can also look at Content what other people are posting without having to sift through hundreds if not thousands of accounts as well.

Private Mastermind Groups going to be a big trend going forward.

Let’s face it as marketers are losing reach and having to spend money on social media where their mind is racing too, how can I defeat and outwit the system.

Guess what you can’t trick the system but you can within the rules of the system.

I recommend if you are struggling with getting reach then analyze who are your superfans, who are the people that are most interested in your Content.

  • Guess what …invite them into a private group most recently I did this on Twitter as an experiment.
  • I went through and just start adding into a group the top 50 people that often Engage with my Content.
  • People who like my Content,
  • Share my Content,
  • Comment on my Content

It was like magic when I invited these 50 people into one group.
Doesn’t matter what your branding is it works.

So say we create a group called Lifestylebiz you can create a group and invite people and guess what you can grow this group and sell to them to your own audience.

Recently I went to a Life Style Conference where a fitness sales professional came to my keynote. She walked away and said you know what I am going to run over to Facebook and create a Facebook group for Fitness Enthusiasts.

If I get all these Fitness enthusiasts into a group now guess what I can sell to them without having to run ads.

That is my recommendation to you. Start creating small privatized communities.
Important Note of advice.

6 Social Media Marketing Tips you should not ignoreStay informed what is happening on other social networks but don’t go chasing new shiny objects.
What that means is do not chase the trends. Why because you will hear there is a new social network and don’t just rush to go jump on it.

I know every thought leader, and guru out there says go, land, grab and go get as many people you possibly can on this new social networks. Click Here

Guess what happens when you go to rush over to all these new social networks as we saw in 2018 with Save Arrow or Web Talk what you are doing is you are engaging with probably the same people in your space that already on Instagram, Snap Chat, Facebook and Twitter.

Believe me, these are people that are doing the same thing that you are trying to do.

My recommendations are instead of going to chase that new shiny object work with your existing Infrastructure what exists.

You have access to over 2 billion Facebook users, over 1 billion active Instagram users, Twitter, LinkedIn these are social networks which I can almost assure you, will give you more value and more immediate reach than any new social network that you can jump on.

6. A New trend that brings you more traffic and you more shares

Make sure that as you are going to different places specifically as you are sharing your Content on Instagram, you want to tag where you at.

Social Networks and Marketing,The reason why is because as you are going to these places and sharing Content, other people are doing the same, or they are looking for Content in these venues.

If you go to a Sporting event, for example, I live in Singapore and if I go to the F1 Grand Prix 2019 Night Racing I am going to different places like Marina Bay Sands, and I want my Content to be indexed within the Marina Bay Sands because this is all about discoverability.

 

 

So how am I growing my following?
I am posting Content consistently daily making sure of #hashtags.
Making my Content easily discoverable with where I visit.

So once again throughout 2019 make sure that not only are you paying to optimize your Content and get additional reach.

You can also do a couple of easy tips and tricks to get more organic traffic, and it starts with tagging the places where you visit and post Content on Instagram or Facebook.

What are the most common Obstacles a network marketer has to overcome?

Network Marketing Failure and Success

The Struggles every Network Marketer will go through. There are 6 main struggles you have to overcome.

Working in online marketing as a network marketer is not easy it always sounds easy and if you listen to some people it is the easiest business in the world. Online Marketing has a very high failure rate. Why is it that of 1000 Network Marketers 10 will succeed?

Lots of Network Marketers quit before they become successful.

Network Marketing Failure and Success

Everyone in the online marketing industry who is successful and everyone who struggles to make it in the online world will go through the same ups and downs. The only difference is how people handle the ups and downs. That, in fact, determines if you succeed or fail.

I went through a lot of ups and downs, one day I was on the top of the clouds as I had a good week with sales. The next week I was thinking I am getting nowhere as I had just a few sales, and my mood thermometer sank to the lowest when I did not have any sales.

Network Marketing the ups and downs in this industry

I felt like the ocean with big waves that throw me up and down. I had another job on the side when I started to look after my family and then start in the Online Business. I struggled for the first 6, and I thought that should be easy, you must be joking. I realised around in the 5th month that I need a system and a proper mindset to keep myself motivated and to go.

Network Marketing requires a Lot of Discipline. Is Discipline the key to success?
It is so easy when working at home getting distracted and do other things. When you start, and you do not set out your goals and hold your self responsible you are doomed to fail.

I know what I say now it seems harsh and a lot of you will not agree with me, but if you want to be successful in Network marketing, then you must change your attitude, your mind and some of your environments around you.
Changing an environment is not so easy as you will eventually replace all nine environments.

Is Time Management a must for a Network Marketer?

Network Marketer struggle with Time Management and if you are not able to manage your time efficiently, you are trapped in the hamster wheel.
Time Management is for Network Marketers a considerable struggle and with the Time Management comes the efficiency.

Lots of people joining the Online marketing never owned a business before, they have been an employee their whole life and don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with that.

When you start a business, you have to be self-disciplined, and you need to manage your time wisely and efficiently. A lot of planning is involved, and that goes from the day to week, to month and 6-month plan.

The downside is you need to put in the work even you do not feel like it. When others go out for the weekend, you have to stay and work on your business. If you do not make your Business high priority and you treat your side business as a hobby, it will always remain a hobby.

I know this step is hard moving from hobby to business. But if you do not make it a high priority life will get in the way and will take over your business. You need to work at least 2 hours a day on your side business if you can not do that you will get bored and after a while, you lose interest and give up.

One thing you also have to understand when you do time management then you have to do it right. Time management is not just time management you need to manage your time efficiently in a way that has 20% input brings you 80% of the sales.

Never Give up as a online marketer

With Time Management comes another struggle and that is called Decision making.

That struggle is making a decision. When you do and follow time management you need to decide on which are priority task and make you the most money and how long can you spent on them. Lots of Network Marketers in the beginner state struggle to work out a system and priorities the tasks into daily and weekly tasks.

For me I normally outsource the work I do not like to do, and therefore it will take ages for me to get it done. Things I don’t like to do, I normally procrastinate and it took me a while to understand this.

Another struggle for Network Marketers is Getting Leads.

Getting leads is one of the biggest challenges that people deal with. To succeed in Business, you need leads. It does not matter if you have a physical business or a digital business. Without people to talk to, sell your products and explore the business opportunity you have no business.

It is like a restaurant without customers to sell your food too, you have no business, and eventually, you get bankrupt.
There are different ways to get leads, and the possibilities are endless.
A simple and efficient way to find a lead generation possibility of what works for you.

You can use classified ads, local events, solo ads, blogging, youtube videos, sales funnel, or opt-in pages where your visitor to your site signs up for a newsletter or receives a gift.

There are hundreds of possibilities to generate leads. The only thing you must do is take action.

The next struggle for Network Marketers is Duplication.

What means Duplication? It means that when something works like an ad that you want to duplicate it or your team to achieve more sales.

When you sign someone up you, want them to be able to go out and find a few customers or sponsors a few distributors to teach train and support their team and duplicate that over and over.

It sounds simple in the real world; it doesn’t work out that way. Do you believe that almost three out of four people who join your team going to end up quitting in less than 90 days?

They are not going to sponsor anyone, and they’re not going to find any customers they are not going on auto-ship no matter what you do to help them. It is hard to accept that, but the sooner you accept that fact and embrace that the better off you are going to be.

Another obstacle is duplication

What is the key to duplication?

The Key to duplication is to have a simple system people can easily follow and a strong team culture that people love to be part of.
Besides, you use a simple system that is called tap- rooting, where you build depth quickly under the people you enrol, and you give them something to lose when people have something to lose then they are less likely to leave the business.

The invisible struggle of outsourcing and finding quality people.

It is hard for network marketers to find people that are leaders and doers. The truth is there are not many leaders and doers out there.

Have a look in the cooperate world most people stay in their job for years without a promotion or go as far where they do not need to make important decisions. Leaders and doers make decisions all the time and making decisions on a daily base is for a lot of people a struggle.

But that is ok we need the diversity in the people that what makes our world go around. We need all different types of people in the world to make the economy run.

The sooner you realise that the best people In network marketing typically show up in depth rather than the people you sponsor. As you sponsor people whatever they are good or not they can lead you to quality people.

One other thing you should do is recruit up, and that means look at the people who are at the same level as you in the areas of success, knowledge and motivation. Most people they hire or recruit down as they look for the unemployed person broke a person, or someone who is struggling their whole life, that is not really who you want to recruit into your business.

They might be a great and well-educated person they are just not a prospect, and they just do not have the spark what it takes to be successful. You want people who have the same view of things as you and works as hard and determine as you.

The person you recruit should have contacts, credibility and some influence. Look for those prospects and your business will grow.
I usually look at people, and I look at people who owned a business before, or have done network marketing before, sales professionals, or know how to work on a commission base.

Use quality people in your team, when you have to say 30 people in your team, and you sponsored 5 or 6 of them you can look at the other 23 people and find the two or three who want to do something with the business and start working with them.

Choose your team wisely in network marketing

Attrition is a Killer in Network Marketing.

What is Attrition? It is a process of reducing something’s strength or effectiveness through sustained attack or pressure.

That is a killer in our business. It is the fact that around 65 to 70 per cent of your team is quitting the business every single year and the truth is all businesses in the real world they lose customers, and they lose employees, and online marketing is no different.

The problem with most people is that they start something but don’t finish anything. Most people give up on diets, give up on fitness and exercise. Most businesses in the real world don’t succeed; it is a fact of the real world. Network Marketing is easy to quit as you usually invest less than a $100 investment.

If you would invest one million dollars in starting a traditional franchise, you would never quit when times get tough, but you would do the opposite, and you would do everything and anything in your power to make this franchise business succeed.

That will never happen in the online world as the investment is small and people have no skin in the business and write off the few bucks very quickly.

That is why I say you want to build depth you give people something to lose. If they have a small team and a small check they are more likely to stay in the game.
Final thoughts from my experience that are the most common obstacles you have to overcome when you are in the online marketing world.

You have to deal with this struggles day by day until you found your way through this. Check out the winning the game of money it is a mindset program and helps you get focus and grow above yourself.
Implementing a system together with the right mindset is very important to succeed in the online marketing world.

If you are thinking of making a career as a Network Marketer, then you have to learn how to overcome each one of the challenges, and there will be more challenges coming your way the higher you climb the ladder of success.

My Advice for any Network Marketer out there who are struggling is creating a system and get clear of your vision. The Business is 70% mindset and 30 % a system.
One important thing is being a Network Marketer, in the beginning, can be a lonely place. People and friends will not understand that you spent more time with your computer instead of spending time with friends and family.

Being part of a great community is, and it is essential to talk to people who go through the same struggles as you.
As glorious and exciting it sounds to be a Network Marketer it is a long and hard way to go to the top. When you made it, and you are up at a certain level, it is a great feeling, and the reward is unbelievable.

I am a network marketer for 3 years now, and I worked lots of hours on being where I am today.
Believe me, many times I had to motivate myself as the doubt came up is this really that what I want.

Yes, now I can say being a Network Marketer is great, and I have learned a lot on my way up. As I do not want to stop here, I want to climb continue the ladder of success and to do that I have to work on a continuing base on my skills and knowledge.

One thing you have to understand you do not need to reinvent the wheel again, do what other successful Network Marketers do, and run split testing what works and what doesn’t than you duplicate it.

I am part of a great community that gives me support when I need it.

How is digital Marketing changing in 2019? Is this the beginning of a new era?

the change in digital Marketing in 2019

Do we need a new Digital Marketing Strategy in 2019?

Do you think Digital Marketing is evolving and things will change the way we do it now? When you are in Internet Marketing, flexibility and evolving quickly to go with the flow is essential. When you are just starting, or you are already an experienced digital Marketer, it is not always easy to keep up with all the changes, and it can be overwhelming.

Digital Marketing made easy in 2019

I watched a video from Neil Patel about the changes in 2019 and what he says is significant for every Internet Marketer in staying on top of things. In short, you need to fine-tune your Internet Marketing more than ever.

He stretches the fact that if you are not able to progress with the change, then there is a good chance that you will stay behind, and your competitors are getting ahead of you.

One Thing he said made me a bit worry about the things that have been working for the past last years will not work anymore. I was curious about what would that be.

Change Nr. 1 How will digital marketing change in 2019 and what you need to do to thrive and succeed.

The first thing you need to know is that digital marketing is moving to an omnichannel approach. You used to be able to build a business with just one channel.

For example, Facebook grew by just telling everyone to invite your friends. They would take that address book, actually your address book, and invite all your friends automatically even without your permission. That has changed, and those tactics don’t work as well as they used to.

Neil Patel stretches the fact that he does not say they don’t work anymore what he is saying is that they don’t work so well anymore as they did before.
When the Internet Marketing moved to an omnichannel approach which now you have to use tactics like
• Growth hacking,
• Pay Per Click,
SEO, Keyword research
• Content Marketing,
• Social Media
• Banner Ads
• SSL is a must
• Site Speed
• the list goes on

Internet Marketing in 2019

The more channels you use, the better it is for you. Most of these channels are crowded and overloaded. Everyone is using Facebook and Instagram and you can find endless training and content .
You have to use them all to be ahead of your competition in 2019.

I know it is much work, but thanks to marketing software’s like blog2 social you can automate your sharing of your blogs. Pinging your blog is still essential if you use pingler.com you can also automate that part.

Change Nr.2 The Move is on in Digital Marketing Voice Search.

The second thing you need to know and most of you will not like this, and the search is moving to voice search. By 2020 ComScore estimates that half the searches on Google will be through voice search.

Right now, two out of every five adults are using voice search. Yes, that means kids are not using it so much but still by 2020 they are saying half of all searches not just from adults, but half of all searches are going to be the voice search.

I have to admit I do not use voice search, but I will look into it. I made my mother’s Samsung tablet with voice search, and she is quite happy with it.
Have you used voice search before and if you do say yes please comment below? If not also leave a comment would be interesting to see who has used voice search and who hasn’t.


If you want to do well in 2019, you need to leveraging voice search. The way how you do this is one make sure your site is https because most of the sites throughout the top are HTTPS these days.
Now many hosts supply the SSL free of charge, but two years ago you had to pay dearly for it. Now you can get the SSL also for free on the Internet.

SSL meaning = Secure Socket Layer. It makes a site trustworthy and secure, especially for online payments.

Site speed is essential for your site to make the visitors experience pleasant.

Your side needs to load fast site speed is important. If it doesn’t load fast, you are not going to do as well with voice search. You will lose customers in the process.

Question and Answers Short and to the Point.

When people are typing in questions, they typically typing in longer-term phrases, so your answers to these questions need to be short and to the point. If your answers are a paragraph long, you are not doing so well when compared to if you answer one sentence long.


Change Nr. 3 Optimise your conversion. Don’t leave money on the table.

Don't leave money on the table in digital Marketing

The third one is conversion optimisation. Advertising is getting more and more expensive over time; that is one thing that will never change.

The only way you are going to be able to compete and stay ahead is through conversion optimisation. The more you optimise your landing page for conversions the better it will be for you.

Make sure you are using tools like Crazyegg which allow you to do A/B testing so you can squeeze more conversions from the traffic you are getting.

Have an Exit Popup on your site.

I know we all hate pop-ups, but before your visitor’s exit, your site makes him give you his email address with a breathtaking a free offer.hUse the Hello Bar which allows exit intent email collections. There are different memberships, and for the beginning, you can use the free version.

Again, that will help you to get more from users and visitors that you do have. If You don’t do this as years go on you are going, get ground out by the competitors because they are going to spend more money then you and they are going to crush you.

So, focus on conversion optimisation even though it is not sexy, and most people don’t like talking about it in marketing.

Change 4 Implement your Sales Funnels.

The fourth tactic I have for you is leverage funnels. Marketing funnels are going to be more popular than ever in 2019.
Before people just used the funnels to optimise their campaigns to hey, I am buying ads, how many sales am I getting. Now you need to look at up sales, down sales, cross sales, Lifetime value customer and churn.

Make Money with Affiliate Marketing.
Work from home and be your own boss. Internet marketing means getting the word out on the web and it means creating brilliant content. The only problem is that very few people have any idea what makes the web tick. Find out what you need to know.
We respect your privacy. As I hate spam, we will not spam you.

Sales Funnels across all Products.

Whether you have a physical product, digital product or doing lead generation, you need to track everything from a visitor to a conversion point, that’s revenue. For your visitors to keep buying, the lifetime value of the customer and that is why funnels are essential.

If you do not know how to create a funnel go and check out the tools like clickfunnels.com

Change 5 Content Marketing is it declining?

Content Marketing won’t work as well anymore. Think about it anytime you search, most of the articles that are at the top are content marketing.
Blogging is so popular and so played out, that everyone is regurgitating the same information repeatedly.

Unless you are creating amazing new information that people haven’t heard before you are not going to do well, your Content should be quality Content. Just writing for the sake of it will not do. Learn how to create unique cintent here. Click below.

Content Marketing won’t work as efficiently to get links and social shares unless you are creating amazing content that’s new that people haven’t seen before.

Change 6 The Power of YouTube and Video

Video Content. Some people love to read and some people who like to watch. Any Internet marketer needs to produce Video content.
Videos keep people engaged, people leaving comments and the Youtuber will respond.

Video Content is the future;

People want to engage through video. You know what Facebook gives you more views if it is a video, youtube gives you a ton of views and likes and LinkedIn does as well.
You need to be leveraging video you can not take it for granted.

Change Nr. 7 Podcasts are back more prominent than ever before.

This is the last one for you. I remember in 2004 I was listening to some podcast on my iPhone and the iPhone had a unique app for all the updates of the podcasts.

Podcasting is taking over. Did you know that 45 % of the people who listen to podcasts have a household income above $ 75000? That is much money. What it means is that people listen to your podcast; they are going to be better buyers than most marketing channels out there.

It would be best if you created a podcast, everyone is using their mobile phones these days, everyone is driving to work, and most people listen to a podcast YouTube or mindset audio.

Podcasts are coming back in Internet Marketing

Everyone is listening to something each day on their mobile phone.
Podcasting makes it easy where people can listen to your content on the go. It is such a hectic world out there. It would help if you had a podcast so people can listen to you while they are dealing with their hectic life.

Leverage these strategies, and you will do much better in 2019.
Digital Marketing is changing, and if you look at the platforms like social media, you can see that every few months some new rules and some new changes are implemented.

How To Increase The Sales Of Your Affiliate Products. Follow These 7 +1 Secret Rules.

Success is a matter of your mind

Do want the unlock the secret of making more sales?

Are you an Affiliate Marketer and struggle to make sales every day. Many Affiliate Marketers are on the right way but somehow get sidetracked and lose the chance of making sales. They get caught up in everyday life. We all do.

Success is a matter of your mind

I know it sounds easy selling online and the advertising of the big gurus says all. Get rich overnight, sell this product it sells itself alone, create the passive income you dreamed off, but the reality is many Affiliate Marketers struggle to make sales on a continuing base and hardly meet month ends need.

Why is it that Online Marketers struggle to survive.

They jump from one product to another from one course to another and thinking that will bring you success. Time passes, and another product or program comes up, and you will buy or get it again.

The Affiliate Marketers who sell you the product use an excellent tactic to convince you to buy the product, and they address your problem, and with the product, they will solve it for you.

Think about it. Study that offer that attracts your attention.

“Selling is something we do for our clients – not to our clients.”

by Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar, you can find more quotes at (https://www.brainyquote.com/authors/zig_ziglar)

Zig Ziglar and his famous “Book See you at the Top”

I have to admit when I was in my 20th, and I read the book from Zig Ziglar “See you at the Top”I loved it, and when I was travelling in the aeroplane I had a few burst outs of a laugh as some examples he did are so right and made me laugh.

People always looked at me thinking I gone nuts, but I love this book. I still have it and can recommend it to anyone.


One story I love and I like to tell as it fits so good at this time.
It is the story about John Jones who is in New York and want to go to Boston. So he went to the train station  and bought himself a ticket. 

The Art of getting Side Tracked.

Zig Ziglar see you on the top

On the way to the departure tracks, he came past some weight scales. ( the big ones you stand on it. ) John Jones looked at his watch and said: Ok got some time. So he took a coin and inserted into the machine. 

The Machine told him “your name is John Jones and you weight 188 Pounds and you take the train to Boston at 2.20 pm.”

Oh my, John Jones was stunned he thought that is a kind of trick and he took another coin and tried it on another weight scale machine.

To his surprised the machine said the same thing, Your Name is John Jones and your weight is 188 Pounds, and you take the train to Boston at 2.20 pm.

John Jones could not believe it and still thought it is a kind of trick, so he went into the bathroom changed his cloth and went back to the scale machine put a coin in the machine and the machine said. Your name is still John Jones, and you are still weighing 188 Pounds, but now you missed the train at 2.20 pm to Boston.

What is the meaning to me about this story?

I love this story, and I figured out that it means you miss in life the opportunities because you let yourself get sidetracked and miss the moment of an idea to bring into action. What do you understand about this story?
Without action, there is no success. The way to success is through discipline on staying focused on your goal, long or short term.

How easy is Affiliate Marketing really? The Story of Success.

Affiliate Marketing can be easy, but it can be a struggle for some. Many people promote to become famous overnight or rich overnight. Make Money in your sleep and so on. I know you heard it many times…

Never Give up

However, do you think a Rock star became famous overnight, that he woke up on a day and decided to play the guitar and become a Rockstar? No, he did not become overnight famous, he became famous because the rockstar practised over and over again, had a dream and a goal in mind. The Rockstar properly did jobs he did not like but they paid the bill, until one day all is falling into place.

Being at the right place at the right time.

He could not become famous if the Rock star would not have been practising and perusing his goal. He became good in what he wanted to be a Rock star playing the guitar.

The same is it with Affiliate Marketers they do many things, in the beginning, to get where they want to be.

One thing an Online Marketer should never forget is that to do all this is ok in the beginning but when you achieved continue small sales you need to scale it, and that means it is time to delegate the work to others.

Remember Time is money. The money you can recover, the only time you can never recover use it wisely.

How can you make more Affiliate Sales with your Website?

There are a few points you have to follow and still then no one can guarantee it works. All depends on you. One thing is for sure persistence, fine-tuning and continues what you do will eventually bring you the success you earned.

 

Graph to success don't give up

Graph explanation. What it actually means is that for an extended period of time you stay the same level 1-3 and have small success ups and down just enough to keep you going. 4 -5 is the time where you start to doubt yourself and a lot are giving up just short before you are on the way to succeed.

The more you swing, the higher you swing continue and repeat continue and repeat until one day you swing so high and you go up that you reach the top you made it you belong to the top.

Get started with Rule no. 1 of making more sales. Images are important.

Affiliate Links in Images.
Give your image an Affiliate Link, when you post an image make sure you insert the right affiliate link to that product.

Say you have a picture of the new Samsung tablet phone then make sure you add the link to it so people can go there check it out and buy it.
Many people if they move the cursor over your image might want to click on it. Important keep the affiliate Link relevant to your image.

Tip of the day. The Good idea is to check from time to time your broken links with free software called broken link checker. You can also use a plugin, but the site will do.

Writing a Post with the 4 Principles of AIDA( Attention, Interest, Desire, Action)

Whenever you write a post, you should create at the end of each post a paragraph or two and suggest a relevant affiliate product.

When you share your top 3 best smartphones in 2019, for example, you share all the tips on your final paragraph your conclusion but what you do is you add a paragraph or two, and you recommend a smartphone that is relevant to what was found in the content of that article.

You ask why because people who search for that article online changes are that they are looking for more information about that subject they wouldn’t even be searching for it.

Offer them a solution to there problem and recommend an affiliate product at the end of every post that you have and make sure it is relevant to the content in the post.

Tip. Do not over link your blog keep the links and the blog content in a good ratio — link relevant products to your Affiliate Offer.

ing a must for an Affiliate Marketer

Rule Nr. 3 Automate your Affiliate Links with a Plugin

Assuming that you have a Website, then make use of the plugins that help you automate the process.
There is a plugin that is free, and it is called the auto affiliate plugin.

What does it do? Well, it lets you pick keywords associated with your affiliate link.
That’s how it works, in short
For example, you can select your affiliate link, and you type Keywords related to this affiliate link. For example, say the new Samsung tablet phone, Samsung mobile phone, or Samsung smartphone anytime you use those phrases, or they show up on your website content (of course you have to type the content) it automatically is going to set up a no follow the link to your affiliate product.

Auto Affiliate Link Plugin

Now, this is a potent method and saves you time. Just put it into the right perspective, all of my three blogs have almost 2000 pages of content on each blog there are thousand and thousand maybe millions of words, but there are thousands of phrases that are linked to different affiliate products on Affiliate Programs. Like ( Amazon, Clickbank, Flipcart, Share a Sale, Rakuten and so on ) that I promote.

A straightforward way to automate the linking within your post. Just think about if you had to do it manually it would take you years to do it on every single post. Use the auto affiliate plugin it works like clockwork.

Tip: Before you install a plugin, please check the speed and make sure it does not slow down your site.
Do not go overboard with too many plugins.

Rule no. 4 Create Resource Pages on your Website

It is a good idea to have a suggested resources page on your website that lists all the different affiliate products you promote. Some people call this your money page or some people call it a resources page or suggested resources page.

It is an effective way to showcase the different products you have and what you want to link to this page throughout your website, so it is a highly visited page on your site.

Do not just show the products make small talk in writing with it
What you want to talk about is, what you like and don’t like about the product, why you recommend it and how it has helped you, what made you buy it or try it out.

Keep the description engaging talk about the benefits what your product can do. Always address again the problem you are solving.

Rule nr. 5 Widget on your website links them with your Affiliate Products.

That is on the right Colum of your blog you want to have a list of suggested products.
For example, my five products of the month are, or my ten best products are, then you have a link to each of those affiliate products right on the right Colum.

join wealthy affiliate today

That will show up on every page of your website make sure there are no follow links, but it works excellent and spices up your site.

Tip. Keep your widget on the side nice and neat don’t let them look spammy or all over the place, you can change them on a frequent interchange, so there are always new products and some old products.

Rule Nr. 6 Building the old good Email list.

Focus on building an email list is essential and you can then recommend your affiliate products in emails.
My Websites are trendy but what most people don’t know is that many of my affiliate sales come through my email marketing.

My goal with my websites is to get people onto my email list and then I recommend different affiliate products through email marketing. These are where most Affiliate Marketers generate correctly around 70% of all affiliate sales. If you are not building an email list, you are leaving a considerable amount of money on the table.

Most people who visit your website, they are not going to buy something the first time they visit your site or blog with the affiliate product. A study shows it takes around the 7x the exposure until a customer will buy your product. Sometimes even longer like 10 or maybe 20 exposures before they buy from you and your affiliate product.

That’s where email marketing comes in it keeps your visitors and email subscribers informed and connected to the affiliate product, the benefits you can communicate with them on a frequent base until they are ready to buy.

Tip. Do not spam and give your subscribers from time to time a gift for download or a free discount voucher for one of your affiliate products to try. Sent them a weekly or monthly newsletter called the outcome of the week or product of the month. I sometimes do best-selling product, and it is on sale.

Last, not least rule nr. 7 Common Mistakes Affiliate Newbies make.

I see many newbies make this mistake in promoting too many affiliate products if you want to promote then start with two or three affiliate products, not hundreds.

By all means, when you become a Master in Affiliate Marketing, you can promote as many products as you want, but don’t start to do it in the beginning.

Focus on two to three excellent affiliate products and promote those that you can focus you can concentrate you can test you can see what is working what is not working, you will know and have a good idea of what products become bestsellers and what products to get rid off.

If you promote too many things, your readers will feel overloaded, and you clutter down your blog. Ideally, you want to focus on two or three products, the maximum, in the beginning, is four affiliate products. Those are my seven secrets of making more affiliate sales on your blog or website, and I hope you liked it and please do me a favour and leave a comment if I forgot to cover some more rules.

A To Do List For Every Day. In The Life Of A Busy Entrepreneur!

what is the secret to a successful to do list

How to create a To Do List?

When you are working on your own, you can get easily sidetracked. I make for myself each day a printable To Do List, and this list I print out and cross off all the task I have done.

I know there is management software available like Rescue Time, Time Action Machine and Trello. I use it but I still keep my printable To Do List beside me. It also helps me to go back when I outsource jobs to see how long it takes for certain jobs to do. It takes the guessing out.

Sometimes a to-do list gets too long, or you get so far behind that you are giving up on your to-do list or you get stressed out.
It is not difficult to get a to-do list under control. It is easy when you look at some management strategies and keep up with a few rules. Like the 80/20 Rule.

Understanding the difference between a To-Do-List and a Hot List.

A to-do-list is not a planning pad or a hot list, idea starter list or a wishlist. It is a daily task list for an Entrepreneur to do. What it means is the job-task you need to accomplish in 24 hours.
If you use a to-do list for the whole week just summarize that is a planning pad.
A hot list is a list that keeps your hottest ideas or inventions you want to get going.
Any list should have detailed timelines for all of your tasks and write the priorities besides them.

Use a Spreadsheet

  • Writing down each task, you want to complete on individual columns. Arrange them in different columns. Maybe three or four but not more than five. Don’t do too many columns but you can do as many rows you want. Just make sure you can fit them on an A4 page.
  • A. Want to do ( completed 5 days)
  • B. Need to do (completed 72 hours)
  • C. Must do ( completed 24 hours)
  • D. Weekly tasks ( each week like writing invoices or updating a system)

Getting started with your To Do List Must Do.

The Must-do items should not be more than 5 tasks. Depending on the time otherwise, you will move them to the next day, and that will for sure cause a backlog later on.
If you have 5 tasks, prioritise them in numbers on how much value they create for your business.
Decide how many hours you work in one day on your business and divide it into the task list.
The rule is 80/20 means the task that need less input but creates the most significant value for your company or business. So ask yourself this question: What are the highest producing income tasks I have to achieve today?

The second question is: What is the impact tasks I have to do today.

Traffic x Conversion = Revenue

I know it can be a taff decision but to be productive, you need to learn to make decisions.
Read my blog on 80/20 rule. 

A Few Interesting Facts.

Did you know that 80 % of your revenue comes from 20% of your customers?

Another facts is that a lot of people put 80% work in and only have a 20 % output. Instead of 20% input and 80 % output. Which one are you?

Outsource the Task you do not like to do. Hey, that is perfectly ok we don’t need to master every skill.

If you have items that you can not do that day, make sure those are items that can also be outsourced. ( FiverrUpwork, Freelancer,
Sometimes we should not put tasks on our list we do not like to do, as if we do put them on our to-do-list we will start to procrastinate. Outsource them if you can that saves you time and getting things done.

A to do list for the busy Entrepreneur

The List called Need To Do

The Need To Do List are things that you have to do, but can be done throughout three days. For example, watching a training video, update content, do some research, Social Media engagement, etc.
The same goes for that column prioritise the task according to how important those jobs are, and prioritize them on how much they contribute to make you money.

The List called Want to do.

Want to do, are tasks which have a longer time fulfilment schedule. Jobs they might need more input or research and require other tasks to combine. Some time management systems suggest to toss out jobs like this and use a someday list.

I strongly disagree with that, a someday list will quickly be cluttered, and the list can become endless as all tasks you don’t like or think can wait you will put on there. It is challenging, but don’t create a backdoor for yourself to procrastinate.

If you want to get ahead of your workload, I suggest again if there are tasks you absolutely don’t like or hate to do, outsource them before you drag them from week to week in your to-do list.

Weekly Tasks ( repeated tasks)

Weekly Jobs are those tasks that repeat themselves each week. Make it a habit of choosing one day a week to do them. You will see after doing that for a couple of months it feels great and it will be much easier to fulfil your to-do list.

I got the feeling… ( famous song)

It is a great reward and feeling when you sit down in the evening and can cross out all the tasks you have done on your To Do List. The feeling is fantastic.
Imagine that feeling right now, the excitement of being productive and it feels so good. Can you feel the satisfaction and the excitement that you did it? It gives you a boost of energy.

Don’t get sidetracked.

If you want to include tasks that are in a backlog, make sure they are not taking priority for you, and they create an excellent opportunity for distraction for the must-do items.

Just an example, say you are surfing the net for new collectable books, but you don’t really need to do that especially when you have told a presentation to finish for your customer in a couple of hours.

How many items should I put on my list?

It depends on the task and on how many hours do you need to do that job.
Also, it depends on the criteria is it a single step process or does it need a multiple steps process to fulfil the job.
With complicated tasks, you might only put 2 job tasks on the list, and otherwise 3 to 5 items.

Don’t forget to time yourself and write the time behind each task when you perform the work. That will help you in the future to take out the guessing.

If you use your computer and a spreadsheet as suggested for your To-do -list, you can colour the different columns and add time, and some other notes to it.

The advantage of using colour is that you can quickly see how many highlighted items you have to do, and how many are still left to do. Don’t think I am old fashion I am not. I still use Time Action Machine as software because it is so simple to use, together with my printable list.

Time Action Machine

I suggest to print it out and put this list in front of you. Make a check mark when it is done, keep the crossing out as a ritual in the end when you are finished. It is an inspiring feeling, and you want to ride this wave of motivation.

Create the next day list already in the evening, before you shut down your computer. Why as this gives you time to process it in your sleep and in the morning you know you have a schedule and know what you have to do.
Having a schedule will help you to eliminate a part of procrastination.

So, what do you say, want to start your To Do List today?

It is crucial that you create a list what is done in 24 hours and only if really not possible transfer an item not done on the top list for the next morning.
Make it a habit to finish every day your job tasks, and note down some important things for you to remember.

One more advise I like to give you, find out your biorhythm clock curve.
Check in which hours you are the most productive and which hours of the day you are less productive. For the most productive hours do a task that earns you the most money, and in the not so productive hours do things that are easy and can be done with less brainpower.

Here is an article about this you need to scroll down to the section Peaks and Throughs.

I use my non-productive hours to do tasks like social media, research and training.
I hope I gave you some ideas on how you can organise your to-do -list and please do a printable do list it is so much easier to see it in front of you instead of clicking around on the computer, as this causes distractions and an opportunity to have a sneak peek at something else.

Conclusion

A bit of advise when you want to start with Affiliate Marketing. It is a great way to make extra income from home, but it also involves work. There are no free rides.

As it is with every business, you have to invest your time, and you need to be prepared to go that extra step. There is not much hardware involved in working online, the only things you need is a computer and the Internet. Of course, the other ingredients are a passion, determination, and the will to succeed. 

I can assure you that there are not many Affiliate Internet Marketing Programs out there who offer all that Wealthy Affiliate is offering. I been there and lost money because of the scam I fall for it. It was a good learning lesson but it was also painful.
