Facebook Alternative beBee? A Review

beBee vs Facebook First off: beBee is not in direct competition with Facebook. In all honesty, I am not exactly sure about Facebook´s mission. If we say that it´s a platform to connect with your family and friends, Facebook wins. beBee, the affinity-based network, has a different mission. I´ve shared some general info about beBee in “Linked in vs beBee” and my concern regarding the data quality and changes to privacy at facebook HERE. Many people on Facebook use it in a different sense: Winning clients Building a brand Playing games Sadly, these days one can get the impression that the site has become a huge playground for advertisers and spam. The huge… Read More

WhatsApp To Give Phone Numbers To Facebook

Facebook plans to increase ad revenue Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014 for $ 22 Billion. If you agree to the new TOS (if you don´t you´ll have another 30 days to do so) WhatsApp will begin to share information about your usage of the app as well as your phone number with Facebook.  Currently, Facebook is losing a few ad clients and is looking for ways to increase revenue. I have sold data mining projects for six years of my life, and I am fully aware of the… Read More

5 Most Annoying Social Media Tactics

Please understand this as a humorous list, created with love. There is always a hint of truth in every joke, though. “How I deal” is merely an info on how I react and in no way to be seen as “social media advice”. So here is my list of the most annoying social media people (and I commit to exaggerating): The Tag Spammer This type is very common on Facebook – but all other sites as well. They post a picture of a sunrise. Nice. Who were they with? They tag about 300 people into the post. In the spirit of fabricating worthless social proof, half of the tagged people… Read More

AdSense Alternatives For New Blogs

“Your blog does not qualify for Adsense.” “Your account has been temporarily disabled/deactivated.” Your blog/website is new. No one wants you. What to do? Wait until you have 50 k visitors? No way! Here is the thing with AdSense: There are thousands and thousands of complaints about AdSense out there.

Many people claim their account has been deactivated after they clicked their own ad accidently – one single time. I have an AdSense account for a year now. A blog I started (and ended)… Read More

Grow Your List With PLR

PLR stands for private label right. Someone produces a product (like an eBook, video training, etc.) and grants you the rights to sell it. It is not branded – you can put in your link, address, logo.

The “good” vendors deliver everything you need to set up your sales page (sales page, graphics, additional bonuses). Depending on the supplier and regulations of the particular PLR product you might be granted the right you find resellers to sell the product for you. In that case, it… Read More
