Is your niche profitable?

    Early this morning I had the pleasure of working with Emma. Emma is a small business owner from Sussex, England. She contacted me because she wanted to learn techniques for effective stress management. After a car accident and three back surgeries, Emma has trouble walking. She decided to start an online business. Emma has always been passionate about food and cooking so she decided to start a food blog. Only a few months later, thousands of visitors come to her website daily. What stresses her out is that she hardly makes any money. A few AdSense pennies here and there. Bottom line: people love her blog but they don’t… Read More

Don’t buy on Fiverr or SEOClerks. Ever.

    I steal, I lie, I game the system? Yesterday the funniest thing happened. It made me think of the expression “it’s a small world” I have recently changed the settings on my main blog so that my plug-in removes spam comments before they even enter my WordPress front end. Today I checked because a lot of comments have been auto-blocked. You will never believe what happened next: I found spam that linked to the URL of one of my twitter followers. The reason I remembered him is that I considered removing him for his “check this out..” tagging. Before I did remove and block him I sent him… Read More

Beardvertising – an innovative advertising approach

Coming up with brilliant marketing ideas is like hunting the holy grail these days. With too much, too aggressive and too salesy advertisements all around us, we have become numb and defensive. We install ad-blockers, we stop taking calls from unknown numbers, we block spam – our guards go up as soon as we spot a salesperson. Many marketing and advertising agencies are looking for ways to “beat” us, manipulate us instead of producing content we want to see. “The unblockable ad” and such are popular topics amongst advertisers and advertising agencies. If an industry’s approach is: “They don’t want it, we’ll find ways to force it on them”, it’s… Read More

Brain Entrainment Audio for Commercial Use

Seductive Offer for Online Businesses and Coaches Did you ever watch a movie, presentation or advertisement and thought it’s the music that entices, convinces, excites, thrills and seduces you?

How to not be annoying on Twitter

Use of Twitter auto messages A quick Twitter tip from my personal point of view: I might be particularly sensitive to spam, but rest assured that there are others who feel just like me. You know what I find surprising? Meanwhile, the only group of people besides porn stars I am not following back on Twitter are social media experts. First off: It makes sense to automate Twitter to reduce the workload. There are many social media experts with tons of know-how on the market. But it´s also a title (like Entrepreneur, Leader) that is trending and free to wear. Therefore, many brand new marketers call themselves “social media experts” right… Read More
