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. It seems that many do not get approved while others accidently did something that is against Google´s TOS. Whether it´s true or not, I can´t tell. 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. Most PLR products come with a lot of extras, for instance, articles, that you can use for newsletter and such. That can definitely be interesting. 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

Honest Review of MailChimp

Is MailChimp right for your business? Let me start off by answering a question I had. Why are there so few MailChimp reviews around and why do they often get trashed even though the comparisons show that their offer is good? That reviews are always honest is an illusion. Most reviews are written by people who are affiliated with the companies they review. Meaning they get paid when you buy it. Some of them pay serious amounts of money for a successful recommendation. MailChimp does not really have that. They offer a tiny commission – not even cash but a small credit to your account. Definitely not the kind of… Read More

How to minimize Spam

Why Spam and Scam matter There are two types of online marketers. One group that generates newsletter subscribers by putting out quality content or through excellent social media work. Or maybe they pay for advertising, have a witty guest blogging strategy or utilize solo ads. Then there is this other group. They call themselves “online marketers” when all they are is spammers. I am not talking about annoying people who spam their LinkedIn contacts. Not even about companies who put you back on their list a few months after you unsubscribed or the over motivated affiliate marketer. I am talking about those disgusting spammers that fake their “from” address and such.… Read More

Did you maybe even look at one of those sites because you were excited and curious for you had that many visits? Especially as a new website owner or local business, referral spam can be a problem. Referral spam is produced by bots that crawl your site. They do not interact with your site and no real person is looking at your site. In most cases they do not link to your site; they just pretend to (luckily). Why is referral spam a problem? For large sites with… Read More

3 Crucial Tips for New Online Businesses

3 reasons why new Online Businesses fail 1. Tools for Online Businesses Rule Number One: Spending your days evaluating the next “greatest thing of all time” will not help you with your business. Tools have certain functions and some are better than others. Some systems work better than others – but no system you do not follow consequently will work. Driving a slower car steadily towards the destination will get you there faster than stopping over and over again to test drive the next fast car. It´s a great idea to stay up to date. But many get lost in the sea of claims and promises. Every “free presentation” takes… Read More

Do you still need Business Cards?

The Case of Business Cards Outdated or still a thing? I am reading many articles that state that Business Cards are over. In times of smartphones, emails and such many people do not see a reason to have them anymore. Especially Online Entrepreneurs, Website Owners and Affiliate Marketers are of the opinion that Business Cards are a relict of the 90ties. They are missing out on a lot of opportunities. I believe that every online business owner, entrepreneur, blogger and even affiliate marketer should have Business Card. Here is why: You meet a lot of people in your everyday life. You might not be close enough to that person to… Read More
