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.
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
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.
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 are the 5 bad habits you need to give up or work on it if you want to be successful?
Our lives are dominated by Success and Failure.
Did you know, according to the latest studies, 40% of your daily activities are habitual.
Amazing right if you think we are all human and have a brain and function in healthy ways? But we all love our routine. Success and Failure is part of our life, and we fail once in a while and then we succeed.
When I came across this famous quote from Benjamin Franklin, I was wondering if that is true.
“Most People die at 25, but they are not buried until 75. “
Can you relate to that? I know someone who I went to school with and it fits her perfectly. When I went to school with her, I always admired her when she was younger, she was full of life and energy … She never left a stone unturned.
I always believed that she was born to do something great. Well, I did not know how wrong I was. When I met her a couple of years ago, I was shocked as she looked like someone sucked the life out of her.
When she said to me that she finished her University and was ready to take on the world.
But Life had something else for her, she got pregnant with 23 and got married. She has 4 children and never went back to work, as her husband has a good job and he did not want her to work. I think she regrets that she did not pursue her career.
Now she is 55 years young, and she complains about everything and anything. She has no energy and the way she speaks it is like something died in her when she became a mother and wife. It is like the quote from Benjamin Franklin.
In today’s age, most people are literally sleeping awake.
Sounds a bit funny but it is so true. When they get to the end of their life, people are full of regrets.
We are what we think. Have you heard about this saying?
It is essential that you pay close attention to this blog, where I am going to break down 5 habits you need to give up right now if you want to be successful.
Pay special attention to the last and final habit. No do not scroll down and take the fun out of reading all 5 habits.
Bad Habit Nr. 1. The Pressure And You
The first bad habit you need to let go is crumbling under pressure.
We all have been there, I have and I crumbled under pressure and was thinking why me. It took me some time to learn that it is all in my mind and I am the master of my thoughts.
Here’s the big difference between Winners and Losers.
I know it sounds harsh when you say Losers. But the moment a loser feels the winds of life the moment they begin to fall and crumble. What does a loser do when he feels that pressure, they begin to give up, they begin to tell themselves, oh you don’t know what I’m going through.
Losers tell their brain that all is too much and can not handle it. Oh, it is all too hard. What does your brain do, it makes sure that this pressure is too much for you and your brain will trigger the thoughts that you give up.
Why there are only a few Winners?
When you are a Winner you have figured it out you know what to tell your brain. Winners might not like it, but a winner has a quick realization and understands it is real, and it is okay.
There is a part of us that has to go through the process. It is a part of overcoming and growing, stepping out of your comfort zone.
Winners realize the most robust trees don’t grow in the best soils, they grow in the strongest winds, and they understand that they can control it.
When Problems arise…
The problems arise when we think we’re the only ones who feel the pressure and then allow ourselves to get overwhelmed by it, when in fact other people around you feel this pressure too.
What dictates success?
Winners have a neutral relationship to their brain and this energy. When you reframe it, and you understand how to turn your nervousness into the fuel for success.

Bad Habit Nr. 2 How do you see yourself.
Let’s go into the second bad habit, and that is you. I mean your self-image of you. It makes you act like you.
The strongest force in human psychology is a need to remain congruent with how you identify yourself. So to change your performance, you must change your self-image, and you must begin to get out of your comfort zone. Begin to ask yourself when you achieve your goals who do you become?
What is the true purpose of a goal?
Who do you have to become to achieve this goal? It is like role play.
When you change your self-image to that future vision now, that is when you start acting in accordance with your future self-identity.
Viewing yourself in a negative way will never achieve to change the outcome.
Zig Ziglar one of my favourite Book Authors said :
“You cannot consistently perform in a manner which is inconsistent with the way you see yourself. Change the way you see yourself, and you will change the outcome. “

Bad Habit Nr. 3. Playing to lose or playing to succeed.
Let me ask you, on a day-to-day basis, are you playing “not to lose”? Or are you playing “to win”? This is a big difference, it sounds so simple but it’s a big difference between success and failure, or winning and losing.
People who fail will look around and do just enough to get around. People who succeed they dominate and they will do anything to be successful, Those are the Winners and they take action, and succeed.
It is a mindset game, and you need to change your mindset if you want to belong to the winners.
Every day when you get out of bed the game starts and you are either the winner of the day or you are the loser of the day.
Let me explain it is easy… When you get up in the morning you go to work that it is when it starts with the game. Your day is your game arena.
When you finish work and you go home in a happy mood you are the winner of the day. If you go home and you are angry, frustrated, upset or just a bad mood well than you are the loser of the day.
Count how many bad days and how many good days you have in a month, add it and see how many you have in a year. Figure it out where you are and where you want to be.
You have to realize that if you are going to go in at all in, you need to do it properly. Do it like a winner. Own it from the heart and give what it takes to win.
Bad habit Nr. 4 Commitment and Action
Let’s go into the fourth bad habit which is never committing and never taking action.
Rich people are committed to being rich. Poor people simply think about being rich and this is why the rich continue to get richer and the poor seem to get poorer.
I know when I say this now people will not agree with me, but I will spark that light. People who want the wealth, think the more books they read, one day magnificently everything will fall in place. Don’t get me wrong reading is good and it is necessary but just reading is not enough. You need to use the knowledge you gathered and put it into action.
Otherwise, you are sitting on a lot of knowledge. But that is it.
Rich people, what do they do?
They speed up the implementation. They take action and if they fail they fail forward.
Poor People will read more and think they will do some more research but in the end, never take action.
I was actually one of them. I believed that the more I know the better and more successful I will be.
Well it proofed me wrong, I had a lot of knowledge but it hardly paid my bills. When I started to take action and worry about the things later that when I use my knowledge and put it into action.
Today I am well off and there is no need for me to worry about where my next paycheck is coming from.
I’m going to write this down…. ready…. fire…. aim…. get in the game, you want to know what you want, take action and then you wanna adjust as you go.
Believe me, your plans will never go 100%. To be successful you have to get into the game, go along the way and adjust it on the go. If you fail then fail forward.
To make your dreams come true you need to fail forward. That leads to the final point.

Bad Habit Nr. 5 Create your Dreams.
You know, most people fail because they have not a clear vision of their dream. They want all the things they think off, but they do not have clarity about their dreams. When you do not have a clear vision of your dreams, means you are not ready to receive them.
Do you know how you’re going to make your dreams a reality?
Yes or No? There are only two answers to it.
If you are dream than dream big and I mean big. You see if you shoot for the stars at least you will hit the moon right? So dream big.
Lots of People do not even shoot for the ceiling in the house, and that is why they are never successful. Doubt and worries creep in and they start to question their dreams.
When you start to sabotage yourself and your dreams go back to the drawing board and get a clear vision of your dreams. If you can not think of too many things start with one thing a small thing where your brain can not create doubt and worries.
Dream Big, and don’t worry about THE HOW as the universe has a way to deliver it to you.
Let me tell you one thing THE HOW is none of your business. You can not control everything let it come in divine timing. You wonder why you are not successful that is exactly why.
Jim Carrey dreamed of becoming a Hollywood star. He took action and today he is a famous Actor. When Jim Carrey moved to LA, he would park on Mulholland Drive every night and visualize his success.
One of these nights he wrote himself a check for $10,000,000 for “Acting Services Rendered,” which he dated for Thanksgiving 1995. Just before that date, he hit his payday with Dumb and Dumber. He put the deteriorated check, which he’d kept in his wallet the whole time, in his father’s casket.
Colonel Harland Sanders the famous Kentucky fried chicken. He was fired from a variety of jobs throughout his career before he first started cooking chicken in his roadside Shell Service Station in 1930, when he was 40 years old, during the Great Depression. His gas station didn’t actually have a restaurant, so he served diners in his attached personal living quarters. He perfected his secret recipe failed many times but eventually with never giving up and believing in this dream Kentucky Fried Chicken was born.
Billionaire entrepreneur Sara Blakely has built a business empire with shapewear company Spanx, and has a net worth of $1 billion, according to Forbes.

The question is, do you dare to dream big? Do you dare to dream so big that you feel dizzy from all the excitement? Because when you set this audacious goal, that is the thing that will keep you alive, that is the thing that will come from the heart, you will feel that burning desire to make your reality.
This is how you never run out of motivation by setting a goal that’s aligned with your intuition your heart, the thing that you’re born to do and then it becomes your mission to make your reality.
This is what visionaries entrepreneurs have got in common, they see things before it happens. The question is, is it what do you really really want out of life and make it a must to make that of reality, so dare to dream big.
I use a vision board and I have it in my bedroom where I can see it first thing in the morning, on my computer as a screen saver, on my tablet and phone. Don’t be shy create a vision board for yourself. It reminds you every day of what you want to achieve. It inspires your subconscious mind.

PS: I like to add some things here. When I talk about loser and winner there is no intention to hurt anyone. If I talk about rich and poor I have no intention to hurt or upset anyone. I use these words as they have a greater impact when you read it. I hope I have your understanding.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog. Success and Failure. 5 bad habits successful and rich people do not have.
Why People first believe and then choose not to believe in the Universe.
What is your greatest wish, become financially free and live the abundant lifestyle, find the perfect partner get married to have children, win the lottery jackpot or travel around the world.
We all have dreams and wishes but we choose to put them on hold as we tell us now is not the right time.

That is the intro as on so many other videos that give you the go through of the Law of Attraction.
Manifestation Millionaire is created by Darren Regan.
It is an e-book with lots of info and great information. It goes quite deep into the subject of how to attract and get rid of blockages. It gives good tips for you to clear your mind, focus and start visualizing the things you want. If it is money, it gives you the tools to instant manifestation.
What does it offer? I have to say I bought the book myself to see what is inside. I am a big believer in the Law of Attraction. When I write a review I love to talk about what I know.
One thing I find a bit strange is that according to Darren Regan, it has nothing to do with the Law of Attraction. Instead, it is about portal jumps and mirror neurons with real-world cutting edge neuroscience from experts at Harvard, Yale and other leading universities.
Sounds pretty impressive. Right.

If you meditate, check out this from HeartMath.
Many contemporary scientists believe it is the underlying state of our physiological processes that determine the quality and stability of the feelings and emotions we experience. The feelings we label as positive reflect body states that are coherent, meaning “the regulation of life processes becomes efficient, or even optimal, free-flowing and easy,” and the feelings we label as “negative,” such as anger, anxiety and frustration are examples of incoherent states. https://www.heartmath.org/research/science-of-the-heart/coherence/
Why You Struggle With Time Management And How To Fix It.
Our day has 24 hours, out of this 24 hours we take around 6 to 8 hours sleep and the rest goes either for work or entertainment. Lots of Entrepreneurs do not have much time as they struggle to get things done.
I have asked myself many times why? I struggled in the beginning for the first year. I could not get the tasks done what I did write down … I created my Trello calendar and google calendar for the week and by the end of the week, only 30 % had been done. Want to know “Why” simply because there was always something coming up that needed my attention.
I believed in my mind I will get things done. I achieved my goals and task I wrote down for a couple of days and then something came up again and my system or routine was gone again. I started again and again. In the end, I procrastinated week for week.
I could not believe myself and I made excuses and talked myself into it that tomorrow I will do all. I was just kidding myself.
It became very quickly a hamster wheel and I was chasing after time and started to work longer and longer. I asked myself is this what I wanted from a freedom lifestyle. Being an Entrepreneur?
Managing time is not an easy task and everyone who is working at home can tell you that this is the A and O in daily life. Time management is necessary to plan and start a productive life without working yourself into an early grave.
It took me a long time to understand that Time management is more than just writing down your daily schedule, tasks, and magical thinking to achieve them. There is much more involved than just time management.
You can believe me when I say it has something to do with your mind and your brain. If you do not synchronise your mind with your brain, and your brain with your time management and goal schedule you will never manage time and achieve your goals.
1. Prioritize on what’s important. Easier said than done. It all comes down to making decisions.
Write down all the things you want to get done for the day.
Everything from writing content, researching the projects, balancing the chequebook, planning a campaign, answering emails, communicating on social media etc.
b. Assign a specific time to each task. Between 15 min and 4 hours.
c.Select a task and use a timer like your phone or clock. Try to finish that task as soon as possible. ( that means you will NOT answer the phone, not get up for a drink, you do not surf the social media, none of that you stay focused on the task.
If your task is 2 hours then you should take a 5-minute break after a 30-minute interval. That way you are more inclined to continue in an efficient way and get the task done. This is called Timeboxing.
So do you think that works? From my experience, it works for 2 weeks on and off and then you are back at the drawing board looking for something new.
The problem with all the time management programs is that it all starts with tasks and no one ever talks about your brain and mind. Because those two are the ones who make things happen. Your Brain is the key for you taking action.
Not your piece of paper or google calendar that are just tools to help you to organize but achieving these goals that begin in your head or better say brain.
One program I have used for 3 years now and I have to say it works well and all the task I set out for me in one day, I achieve. I even learned to differentiate between timewasters and efficient productivity tasks.
What I have learned in that program is that I am in charge of my Brain and Mind. When I set a goal than my Brain and Mind will do everything to achieve that. It is like you go into the gym and you build up muscles and that will help you lose weight.
The same goes for your Brain and Mind. You need to innercise it to build the strength to do what you set out to do.

If you do not want to join or if I can not convince you to take the free video series than I have a few tips to help you.
Outsourcing and Delegate your work.
Think about outsourcing the tasks what you don’t like so much and the tasks that take you ages to complete. Not everyone is a professional in every field. Procrastination comes up because there are a lot of tasks that need to be done but we will find ways to get around it and find always something else to do, why because we don’t like to do them. This way you are able to manage your time wisely.
There are plenty of reasonable possibilities to outsource daily work tasks what do not require many skills but are time-consuming.
It is so easy said, but the only way to do this and actually get going is either you create a home office where you can close the door and work in peace, or you need to set rules so everyone understands that when you are working at home, you are actually working and need to get things done.
How you do that, use the time to block method. Have a calendar visible or share through google calendar or Trello and let everyone know your time schedule. People will respect that, and in the long run, it is already 20% what you achieved in your time management. Scheduling time is a great way to achieve your tasks.

Stay tuned in to what’s important and delegate, eliminate and accelerate as part of your daily processes.
Time management can be as complicated as you want to make it, but I highly recommend this 3 video series from John Assaraf. It is worth doing.
A well-organized Entrepreneur finds time for everything that’s important, which in turn leads to effective action, productivity and ultimately success.
Entrepreneurs who do manage time efficiently are on the way to succeed in this business.
Am I wrong when I say that you quit your 9-5 Job and became an Entrepreneur to have a lifestyle you always dreamed off?
You did not become an Entrepreneur so that you can work around the clock. Remember why you become an Entrepreneur and wanted to escape the 9 to 5 Job.
Have your goals in sight, and do think that working 24/7 is not what you signed up for when you became an Entrepreneur. A Secret is being productive and not only busy.
A smart way to tackle Time Management and Goal achievement is investing your time and gain the knowledge to manage your time. Time Management and Goal achievement is a big part of an entrepreneurs life.

What is your idea about time management and goal achievement what do you use and do you agree with me that all starts in your mind and brain?
If you want to start a blog or share your experience or promote your business, blogging is one of the best ways to connect to the outer world.
With a Blog, you can reach Millions of People. Whether you blog to share your experiences or to promote your business, blogging is the best way to connect with the outer world.
One thing that you have to understand is, that blogging is so much more than just writing.
When you want to start a blog, the first thing you need is a website. On the world wide web, there are lots of free sites available. Every free website builder has his pro and cons, and to choose the best one with the most features is important.
That is the hardest part as you have to be on top of the blogging scene and to attract returning customers is a big hurdle for many bloggers.
If you want to make money with your blog, then you need to treat your blog as a business and not like a hobby. You have to be committed.
Maintaining an engaged blog audience every blogger worries about and it takes time.
It all starts with detailed research and using the right blogging tools.
Here are some of the best blogging tools you need to be successful.
1.Grammarly (both free & pro versions)
Grammarly is a writing tool that helps me to check for several types of error. It detects grammar and punctuation mistakes – basic to advanced. It also provides real-time suggestions and guidelines on how to correct these mistakes. It’s also a robust spell-check tool that keeps your writing mistake-free.
I love Grammarly, and because I am not a native English speaker, it is one of the most important tools for me.
Sharing your blog manually on social media can be very time consuming and a pain in the butt.
I use Blog2social to share my blogs. It is one of the best plugins I found to share my blog.
With the free version of Blog2social, you can only have one account per social network, and you can not schedule your post. The Free version gives you a taste of what Blog2Social can do. However, its limited functionality does restrict the automation features that you’d probably want in a social sharing plugin.
For me, the custom sharing and one step workflow features are the best part. They allow me to tailor my messages for each social network. What needs improvement is that you can not customize your images for each network.
What is better in the Pro version.
The pro version is more advanced, and you can do a lot more with it.
With Blog2Social Pro, you can also add up to 5 accounts per social network. When you have like me multiple accounts to share your content, this is quite useful.
It has a great Time Scheduler where you can schedule for the whole month, or the entire year all your posts.
On top of it, there is a great feature where it recommends the best times to share your blogs.
You can even choose on which day and time want to schedule your posts.
You can add more posting times so that you can reach different people at different times on different days of the week.
GT Metrix is a completely free incredible indispensable blogging tool.
Many bloggers do not realize that you can potentially lose much money when your website is to slow, either on desktop, tablet or mobile.
If you want to continue getting traffic at a higher level as well as continue earning money from affiliate marketing, advertising products e-commerce store, you need a standard host and a super-fast website.
GT Metrix is a tool that gives you a clear report of every internal and external CSS files that might be slowing down your site or causing issues.
With that tool, you can easily detect possible elements what are accountable for the website speed both on mobile and desktop devices. The beauty of it you can take than action to fix any issue.
Before I know about this blogging tool, I used Google Page Speed Insights, but it is not the same when you need a detailed report, so you know where to improve.
Another great feature of GT Metrix is that it gives me a weekly report as regards to my site speed.
4.Lumen 5 the best free “online video maker” for all your Blog Posts.
The Internet content is moving forward and more and more Blogger use video creation. Video Maker Lumen5is one of the free and easiest tools on the market.

7. UpdraftPlus (both free & paid versions) a must-have for any website
Whenever you have content on your website, it is an effort from your site. Everything you put you’re your blog counts, and it is valuable.
One thing every website owner should do, and that is back up your website and database. If you are already doing it congratulation, keep a safe copy of your back up with you in case you need it. Download it onto your computer.
There are several backup plugins available, but most of them do not offer a full backup feature. Most hosting services do a backup daily on your site, but why put your faith into their hands. Do it yourself better be safe than sorry.
A neat thing with UpdraftPlus is that it saves files automatically to your DropBox,
If you want the most secure means of protecting your WordPress Site, consider and explore the off-site backups.
With both free and pro versions available, it works without much effort. I am using Updraft Plus for a couple of years now, and it has saved me much-pulling hair moments. I think you know what I am talking about.
Sometimes a plugin update goes wrong and can make your website scrambled, or a plugin can go the wrong way and is in conflict with other plugins.
This is saving you a lot of nerves, swearing and hairpulling.
8.Another great tool… Jaaxy the easiest and best keyword research tool.
Finding keywords for articles or my websites I use Jaaxy as it is the easiest and understandable keyword research tool you can find.
The data is accurate and Jaaxy is an online application so there is no need to download it onto a PC or Mac. Jaaxy is known for its ease of use, speed and accuracy.
When I found Jaaxy I knew straight away this is my dream tool. There is no need to go through weeks of learning how it works. The Data presented is easy and understandable for everyone.
It is a dream tool for people in the blogging business or SEO ( Search Engine Optimization) Businesses. Jaaxy finds keywords in seconds and comes back with another load of brilliant keywords.
Don’t take my word for it, give Jaaxy a free try. Below is a small widget you can try and search your keywords the result comes up in seconds.
My piece of advice.
My advice for the beginning use the essential plugins for your website first and pay pro if you can or go along.
The plugins that are not necessarily keeping them free and if you can afford them, choose wisely. Always ask your self what will this plugin do for you to increase your business. It is always a decision on how important is that plugin for you. Pro and Free version.
I give you this advice as out of my own experience I overdid it with the plugins and my site became a crawling snail, plus when you calculate all the small amounts at the end of the month or year you will be surprised how quick it sums up.
Plugins and blogging tools are important, don’t get me wrong but choose them wisely.
For me, the five best free blogging Tools that instantly increase your traffic to your blog are the five ones I mention in this blog.
Want to make money online? Do you want to know my secret on how I make now 5 figures a month?
Feel free to ask me questions I will be happy to answer them. Please share and like my post on your social media and friends.
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 $$. Let’s make Money online.
Yes, you know that you actually can make Money online,…
but you have not just yet figured it out how those $$$$$ 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.
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 ….
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.
Have a robust and transparent profile that looks good. 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.
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. 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.
Want to learn the weird secret to make $2,000 per month on Youtube?
The more views you are getting, the more money you can expect to make, and also you get more subscribers. With YouTube, what you are earning is passive Income, make a few videos, and they should keep making you money consistently. You can also make money with YouTube through paid sponsorship, but with paid sponsorships, you need a large audience, usually 10K subscribers to do that. You can also make money through Affiliates, but we will get to that later.
Although Jeff Bezos did start off the company selling books, Amazon now sells almost anything you can think of. It is not just a site for buying your favourite books though, you can actually make money with Amazon.
There are 3 ways you can do that.
The 1st way is Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Mechanical Turk is kinda like Up works, it’s a place where businesses outsource work that is difficult for a computer program to do.
Such as audio editing, translating audio and video from different languages, testing webpages, writing reviews, and a whole lot of other services.
You can make as much as $20 -$30 an hour, by working on a few different tasks.
You do not have to be an established author or find a publishing company to do this. You can do this from the comfort of your home, with Kindle eBooks you can start earning Passive Income.
Sounds excellent and believe it or not it is free to sign up and to start.
Amazon takes care of the money handlings, and you can sit back and relax. If you are interested in Kindle publishing you can also do more research on it. You can find free videos and tutorials on YouTube that will teach you the basics.
If you want expert advice, you might have to pay for a course. I can highly recommend this course click here.
This is a popular and easy way of earning Passive Income. All you do is sign up to the Amazon associates’ free program, and you can pick from thousand of stuff Amazon sells on their website and start promoting.
Amazon will give you a special link, and every time someone buys through your link, Amazon will provide you with a commission from 4%-10% of the sale. Amazon will pay you 60 days after purchase, and you can choose to be paid either through bank cheque or through Amazon gift cards.
Please Note: The bank wire transfer is at the moment only available in the United States. If you live outside the USA, you can be paid via cheques, or you can have it transferred to your Amazon account and start buying stuff with it.

So what is Dropshipping? In short, you are selling someone else stuff for a small or substantial profit, without having to deal with the shipping.
You will not need to store the product. Basically, you are acting like a broker or a middle man. You can do this by opening a Shopify store and then linking it with Oberlo. Oberlo is an app that integrates with Shopify, and it is what a lot of people use to source for stuff that they would like to sell on their stores.
The basic principle of drop shipping is, you create a store or any channel where people can buy stuff from you.
Then once they buy something from you, you will pay the manufacturer, usually for a lot less than what you got it for, and then you have the manufacturer ship it to the customer. All without you ever seeing or touching the product. The best part of drop shipping is that you set your own price of the product you want to sell. With the Money you got from the buyer you pay the manufacturer, and the rest is your profit. That is drop shipping simple and easy. If you are interested in drop shipping, there are a lot of tutorials online on YouTube that is free.
You can also hop over to UDEMY and look for free courses
Those tutorials will show you a step by step guide on creating your store, finding products, advertising, finding influencers and finally shipping and getting paid. It is a bit complicated to start, especially in the beginning, but you can make a ton of Money with drop shipping.

Do you believe that you can train your Brain with simple mind techniques to make more money?
Everywhere you look people talking about Mindset and how to become successful. What is this talk about training your Brain, enhance the power within you, manifest anything you want, become rich overnight, live the freedom lifestyle … and so many more. Let me ask you a simple question.
What do you think? Is it possible to train your Brain to help you make more money?
Can you guess the answer? The answer is “YES YOU CAN .”
It started by setting some goals for the kind of lifestyle I wanted to live. My spiritual Mentor Ken said to me many years ago in order to achieve my goals, I need to have the clarity of what they are.
Clarity yes sounds so easy right? Sounds familiar
I am teaching you here a simple easy to use brain training method, what I use to achieve my goals. It only takes a couple of minutes a day. It helps when life kicks in and you get caught up in work, family, friends. I love to share with you this Brain training method what I learned from John Assaraf.
That is around $25.000 a month or $6250 every week you want to earn.
Say you are not earning that right now.
One of the things you can do to train your brain to help you to make that amount of money is first and foremost, GET CLEAR on the exact amount YOU MUST EARN. Whatever it is per week, per month or per year.
Step #2 Read your Affirmations daily
Create a simple affirmation that goes like this: “I am so happy and grateful for the fact that I am now earning $300.000 a year.”
A Simple and powerful Affirmation. Right?
NOTE: You can use any amount you want, or replace it with meeting your soulmate, asking for healing or a better relationship etc.
What I want you to do is this: I want you to read that Affirmation every single Morning 5 to 10 times, and every single night before you go to bed 5 to 10 times.
As you read that Affirmation, I want you to close your eyes, and I want you to practice mentally, and rehearse you receiving that money in the form of a check, cash or in your bank account.
Step #3 Visualize like you are playing a role for a movie.
I want you to FEEL what it feels like to consistently have $25.000 a month coming into your bank account. By the way, you can choose whatever amount you want.
As you close your eyes and VISUALIZE that money coming into your account, what I also want you to visualize is the IMPACT that amount of money will have on your life, your families life, and your friend’s life, the community you live in and the charities that you want to support.
Get totally into a mental movie, and the emotions as if you were a HOLLYWOOD actor or actress pretending that this is really happening. You read your affirmation…. “I am so happy and grateful for the fact that I now earn $25.000 a month. “
As you do that and you REPEAT that, mentally rehearse, visualize what that looks like.
So what does visualizing, feeling the emotion and all that do?
It primes your Brain to see and feel as if it is real right now. That will activate different parts of your brain, specifically the left prefrontal cortex, which is the GENIUS/CEO/EINSTEIN Part of your brain that can actually help you figure out how to achieve that goal and dream.
If you do that in the morning and at night before bed …. Morning upon waking up ( keep it on your nightstand beside you ) and night time before bed, you will start to prime your Brain with an affirmation, with a mental visual rehearsal, and you will cognitively prime your Brain.
One more Step I call it the Bonus Step.
If you want a bonus step, than what I want you to do is take a vision board, either on your computer or a physical board and cut out some pictures of what lifestyle earning $25.000 a month allows you to live.
Step #4 What action can you take daily to get closer to your goal?
Take one or two action steps every day. Take MASSIVE ACTION.
Ask yourself a question:
What can I do today to make that amount of income a REALITY?
The physical actions, in addition to the mental rehearsal with affirmations, mental repetitions, visualizations is one of the best ways to start priming your Brain to achieve the financial goals you have.
Summarize all #4 Steps to Train your Brain to make more money.
STEP ONE Get Clear on what you want. ( set clear goals with clear guidelines)
STEP TWO Read your Affirmation daily ( I am so grateful I am now earning …)
STEP THREE Visualize, believe and feel Like you would if you already had it.
“Ask yourself “what can I do “ Then take massive action to achieve it.
I hope you enjoyed this little brain training. This brain training is from John Assaraf.
John is the founder of Neurogym. I love his courses and he gives away intensive Training for free.
It is a powerful course that goes through step by step to achieve your goals.
It is loaded with videos, subliminal messages and actual training. I have to admit it got rid of the habits I developed over the years. I love that because it is supervised and you doing it with other people who are in the same shoes as you.
Especially when you have doubt and down moments the group is there to pick you up and motivate you.
I was stuck for a while in making a certain amount a year but John course “Winning the game of money “ helped me to get un-stuck and actually rewired my brain and thinking. I love this course because of the guided training.
There is one Training where you go through it and you are lead in your mind to the desert all alone without water, and you have the choice to go back or go on as the journey is too long and exhausting.
Then the light comes on at the moment you struggle the most you drip over a cactus into the hot sand … you see the water in the form of a plant that grows in the desert.
When you look back you see many of the cactus all along the way you walked… What it means is opportunities or solutions are always there but we can not see them even if they are in front of us.
Most people live an average life with average expectations.
What I am going to teach you is one simple step that very few people take.
With this step, you will achieve your goals. Lots of people set goals and they fired up, but then lose track and never achieve the goal at the end. With this one single step, your chance of achieving your goals is 40%-50% higher.
Why is your Brain responsible for achieving your goal and how it influences your goal achievement.
Many years ago when I was doing a lot of research on the brain I became fascinated. How our brain plays a vital role in our success, even financial success. Why some people who have goals achieved them easily and other people who have goals never achieve them. I wanted to find out the reason.
John Assaraf and Neuro Gym
I came across John Assaraf with his program Neuro Gym and I can tell you he has figured it out. It was an amazing discovery. John did a lot of research and still does Brain research. John offers great courses with supervision and they are really good.
In the company, I was working before we had around 2500 people working for different departments. In the sales and marketing department, there were around 800 people working.
300 people were working directly under me. A fascinating fact was that even the company had a good program to educate and sent people on sales training the companies turnover did not increase it somehow stood still.
The company provided lots of books, Cassette, tapes ( that was back then) coaches and motivational speakers.
Different Group Types of Learners.
First Group of Learners.
The company did a lot at least in my eyes and some people who took the seminars were so motivated for a couple of days, so pumped up after those four to five days they stopped. Just stopped it seemed like the seminar has never taken place. They fall back into their old routine.
The second group of learners.
Then there were people so fired up and motivated they took action and continued all the way through. Never stopped until they achieved there goal.
Third Group of Learners.
Another group was people who did nothing no action nothing.
I could never understand that, as they liked it and they were motivated, they felt good but no action came from there site.
Something that became evident to me after the company did the study. They did the program study for 6 months and they monitored all the people who have taken the seminars and sales training coaching.
The subject of the study was ” How many People set goals and achieve their goals.
What was the Result? A Group of people who took one little action step every day.
Those people achieved their goals and their dreams more often than others. That one action was something that John Assaraf calls and the Neuro-Scientist call cognitive priming.
What does it mean? It means that people, who learn how to prime their brain every single day, take the actions to achieve their goal. The people who prime their brain they visualize the obstacles that are in the way of their goals.
They visualize in their mind that they are overcoming the obstacles.
People who do that have created a plan. ( Did you hear that ” They visualize the Obstacles in their way and how they overcome them) Is this the key to visualization?
So there is a process that I thought about from someone else’s work and I call it to group it up. Behavioural scientists Edwin Locke and Gary Latham examined 35 years of empirical research on goal setting.
One of the conclusions from their meta-analysis was that ambiguous aspiration, such as “do your best” rarely inspire the behaviour change necessary to achieve a goal.
This simple little process is all about setting a goal. When you write down your goal in details you will also write down all the obstacles you will face to achieving that goal.
Examples of obstacles that could come your way.
Like you could have an obstacle around your belief or an obstacle of other people, another obstacle can be that you do not have the knowledge and skills,
or you love to procrastinate,
or you care too much what other people do,
or you can not say no and do the jobs for other people and your jobs will not get done.
There are different obstacles for a different reason.
If you have a goal and you write down the obstacles and you use your powerful amazing brain to visualize overcoming all the obstacles.
The next step is then for you to figure out a way to overcome the obstacles.
Fire up your brain.
When you do that you fire up your brain and your brain will then start to work in your advantage, and starts to believe that you can actually achieve the goal and overcome the obstacles.
Create a plan of what you can do today, for let’s say five or ten minutes a day to move you towards that goal.
You will start what I call is a tiny habit a tiny actionable habit every day towards that goal. Now you have gotten the goal, the obstacles, and you have the outcomes that you want to achieve by seeing yourself overcome the obstacle.
Let’s get started and see how easily you can achieve your goal with this little tiny action step.
You will take 10 or 15 minutes a day towards achieving that goal. That is part of the group it up plan for being able to achieve your goals and dreams.
So take a few moments and write down one goal.
Write three or four five obstacles that could come into your way.
Then you write down all the outcomes that you want. Visualize yourself overcoming the obstacles by closing your eyes.
Seeing that obstacle in front of you.
After step four you will jump over you reach over and you figure out the problem, what kind of help you need to achieve that goal.
Then you create a small plan in form of a tiny habit, that you move towards by taking action every day, and when you do that you are going to give your brain, the power it needs to help you to figure out how to solve the obstacles.
The part of your brain that starts getting activated is the left prefrontal cortex.
When you activate this genius part of your brain it will help you to figure out how to overcome the obstacles.
The Lazy men’s way of achieving your goals.
Every one of us who is a goal achiever sets goals, but very few people think about the obstacles, that are there and how to overcome them. That is then when the chit chat starts in your brain, the doubts come up and we start to procrastinate and look for excuses why we are not able to achieve them.
Now, you can become an amazing goal achiever, you have to accept the fact that there will be obstacles.
Prime your brain to recognize the obstacles teach your brain that you can overcome it. Start doing it in your mind first and then you back it up with a plan.
Imagine you achieve the goals you set out.
Think about how you feel overcoming your obstacles.
See yourself overcoming your obstacles.
Imagine your colleague gratulate you for your achievements.
How does that make you feel? Good right actually amazing.
What are you waiting for? Do you want to become a goal achiever today?
You are in the group of goal achievers you are in the top 8%. Congratulation

Sharing your Photos on Instagram. Is it really the cash magnet to double your income.
I am thinking for a while now that I should start to put more attention on my Instagram account. When I googled how to get more followers and get more reach with my Instagram Account, I came across this Add.
Well, I checked it out and bought it. I saw that they have a 100 Day Return policy. No worries I can return the product if I do not like it.
Tried it and was a bit disappointed as I had a different understanding of what the product is.
My honest First- Hand Review on the Product Profits Gram from Trevor Dawson.
I find it cute that he mentions his dog and I am sure there is a story behind it.
The E-book will explain to you how you can sell your own pictures to Twenty20 Royal Stock Photography, the types of photos that sell and are in market demand, how to use or add keywords to your photos and how to connect your Social Media Accounts.
Below you see a glimpse of the content table of the e-book.
Just to be clear the platform is Twenty20 what is another royal stock photography site where you can sell your mobile pictures. It is an app and you can download it from your iTunes store. ( this app is only available on IOS.)
As you can understand, it has nothing to do with Instagram.
If you belong to the many who love taking photos with their smartphone everywhere they go then this is actually an opportunity for you. If you can manage it well you might make money and have fun doing this business.
My understanding of ProfitsGram.
What I understand and I might be wrong but it also mentions that you can take pictures from social media and sell them as your own.
Does the Profits Gram hold up to their promise?
There is no doubt that the E-Book is structured in detail how you can sell your photos online.
It has a lot of information on the legal issues about online photos selling. I find the tips on how to sell and monetize your photos interesting and helpful. Especially for people who have a passion for photography and want to make some money.
In short and plain simple what you learn in this e-book is how to sell your photos on the Twenty20 platform.
100 Days Money Back Guarantee.
ProfitsGram comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee. It means when you are not satisfied you can get a full refund within the 100 Days.
I have to say the 100 Days is pretty cool, as it says ProfitsGram is very confident about their e-book.
What threw me a bit off is that it actually has nothing to do with Instagram it shows you how you can “make money” from the Twenty20 royal stock photography company.
It is misleading about making money from your Instagram account. I can not say it is a scam but I would say it has twisted the actual purpose.
The e-book explicitly says making money from “Twenty20′, and not from “Instagram”.
Price of the e-book is USD $ 77 but on a discount offer, it is USD $ 37.
Even it may seem affordable, if you are looking to do something with Instagram it is not worth it.
On the other site if you are into mobile photography and you love to monetize it then it is totally worse the money.
On the other hand, there is a seller guide on the Twenty20 platform where you can learn more about the topic.
Except for the little Tips and Tricks that Profits Gram has in the e-book you will not learn with Twenty20.
For me, there is no doubt that you can really make money selling photos on Twenty20. Yes, there is a …..
But there is also the other side that this niche is quite competitive and you must be pretty good and have special photos to succeed and be able to achieve a 4 figure income each month.
I am not saying it is not possible, I am just saying you need to be passionate and determine and put a lot of effort into that business. It is not “easy money“.
So my opinion the product receives from me only 3 stars out of 5.
Reason: It is misleading on Instagram and it promotes the platform Twenty20.

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.
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?
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. If 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…
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.
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??
If 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.
You 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.
Stay 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.
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 once again throughout 2019 make sure that not only are you paying to optimize your Content and get additional reach.
