If I make a wordpress site, how will it be benefitial to my books I write for kindle?

July 28th, 2013 1 comment

I am planning to buy hosting and make a wordpress site. Nothing complicated in the beginning. But I was wondering if this will be of any benefit to few ebooks I have written for amazon kindle?
I know I can post the website in my amazon authors page and also post the books on wordpress.

But will it generate any form of income ? If so how does it happen, does it have to do with adsense? But I just have ebooks so how will it work?

A wordpress blog is a great way to advertise your kindle book. For the website write articles that target long tail keywords related to your book. Then at the end of each article link to your kindle book, or even include a amazon affiliate link. Use your blog as a marketing tool not as the source of income.

Why does this pose a problem during the Great Depression?

June 30th, 2013 2 comments

“More than 60% of the population was living below poverty levels, while a mere 5% of the wealthiest people in America accounted for 33% of the income, and the richest 1% owned 40% of the nation’s wealth."

Why does this pose a problem during the Great Depression?

The biggest problem was because there was a currency shortage, so to speak, in the country. With so many unemployed, few people had ready cash to use on anything but the most basic necessities.Those who did have the large cash reserves(i.e. the 1%) were unwilling or unable to spend their money to generate new jobs. There was a variety of reasons. Loss of potential customers, fear of government policies(look up the tax rate on those 1%ers back then),or being rich but not having liquid assets(owning land, industries, or other properties, but not much cash).
Years under the Roosevelt administration and his attempts to overcome the Depression failed, until the start of the war. Only then did currency begin to circulate more, though ironically the government then took actions to cut back on the money in circulation to curb inflation. War Bonds and rationing were two large tools. No matter how much money you had, in theory, without ration cards you could not buy products. War bonds helped finance the war as helping to avoid inflation.

Why does my girlfriend demand that I buy her a huge diamond ring?

We were at a jewelry expo thing and after she said that the ring I give her needs to be at least 10 carats. Just because she knows I can afford it shes taking advantage of me, what should i do?
Im not trolling. Just because someone makes good money doesn’t mean they are obsessed with it. I’m definately not.
@Tiger81 I WISH i was dating Kim Kardahian.

Here’s what the article says:

By Liz Stanton, CPE Staff Economist

1.You’ve Been Psychologically Conditioned To Want a Diamond.
The diamond engagement ring is a 63-year-old invention of N.W.Ayer advertising agency. The De Beers diamond cartel contracted N.W.Ayer to create a demand for what are, essentially, useless hunks of rock.
2.Diamonds are Priced Well Above Their Value.
The De Beers cartel has systematically held diamond prices at levels far greater than their abundance would generate under anything even remotely resembling perfect competition. All diamonds not already under its control are bought by the cartel, and then the De Beers cartel carefully managed world diamond supply in order to keep prices steadily high.
3.Diamonds Have No Resale or Investment Value.
Any diamond that you buy or receive will indeed be yours forever: De Beers’ advertising deliberately brain-washed women not to sell; the steady price is a tool to prevent speculation in diamonds; and no dealer will buy a diamond from you. You can only sell it at a diamond purchasing center or a pawn shop where you will receive a tiny fraction of its original “value.”
4.Diamond Miners are Disproportionately Exposed to HIV/AIDS.
Many diamond mining camps enforce all-male, no-family rules. Men contract HIV/AIDS from camp sex-workers, while women married to miners have no access to employment, no income outside of their husbands and no bargaining power for negotiating safe sex, and thus are at extremely high risk of contracting HIV.
5.Open-Pit Diamond Mines Pose Environmental Threats.
Diamond mines are open pits where salts, heavy minerals, organisms, oil, and chemicals from mining equipment freely leach into ground-water, endangering people in nearby mining camps and villages, as well as downstream plants and animals.
6.Diamond Mine-Owners Violate Indigenous People’s Rights.
Diamond mines in Australia, Canada, India and many countries in Africa are situated on lands traditionally associated with indigenous peoples. Many of these communities have been displaced, while others remain, often at great cost to their health, livelihoods and traditional cultures.
7.Slave Laborers Cut and Polish Diamonds.
More than one-half of the world’s diamonds are processed in India where many of the cutters and polishers are bonded child laborers. Bonded children work to pay off the debts of their relatives, often unsuccessfully. When they reach adulthood their debt is passed on to their younger siblings or to their own children.
8.Conflict Diamonds Fund Civil Wars in Africa.
There is no reliable way to insure that your diamond was not mined or stolen by government or rebel military forces in order to finance civil conflict. Conflict diamonds are traded either for guns or for cash to pay and feed soldiers.
9.Diamond Wars are Fought Using Child Warriors.
Many diamond producing governments and rebel forces use children as soldiers, laborers in military camps, and sex slaves. Child soldiers are given drugs to overcome their fear and reluctance to participate in atrocities.
10.Small Arms Trade is Intimately Related to Diamond Smuggling.
Illicit diamonds inflame the clandestine trade of small arms. There are 500 million small arms in the world today which are used to kill 500,000 people annually, the vast majority of whom are non-combatants.

What are the best tools under $100 to build a semi-professional website?

April 2nd, 2013 4 comments

I don’t want something too simple or too fancy.

I’m using a great online company called Sitesell. This is the very first time I have ever built a website, so I needed a company who could take me by the hand, step by step!

I have nothing but praise for them! They make EVERYTHING so easy! They supply all of the online training, simple (yet incredibly sophisticated tools) and excellent support.

There is small annual hosting fee to pay but that includes all of the above plus your domain registration. They even supply the templates for designing your site! And don’t worry about html coding or other techy stuff as that’s all taken care of for you!

My site is only 18 months old. but It’s already very highly ranked by the major search engines and is attracting more than 30,000 visitors a month…..and rising! Plus it generates a substantial income (mainly from advertising) which not only well exceeds the running costs, but actually shows a very healthy profit!

How many times can you get a pell grant?

March 15th, 2013 3 comments

I’m in WA state and am looking at attending Community College for two years, then transferring to a 4 year university. How many times can you receive a Pell Grant? An old roommate of mine said you can only get them once, but I wasn’t sure if that was specific to her since she had defaulted on her loan and had to pay it back. What other types of grants can you only be eligible for once if that is the case? Should I wait until attending a 4 year to use a grant, because cost of living and tuition will be so much higher, or use it now to get equipment and learning tools that I can take with me when I transfer? I have 20 different people saying different things, and my phone won’t let me get on google, but the Yahoo Answers app works just fine.

it depends if you even qualify for pell grant… and it is possible to qualify in one year & then not in other years

household income, changes to the federal funding program (like what happened for 2012), and your academic performance, and loan limits (per year & aggregate) are all examples of things that can affect your pell grant funding

you can fill out FAFSA to use federal funding (this includes student loans as well as pell grants) for a total of 12 semester (or 6 years) — if you meet other qualifying factors to use FAFSA generated aid

however, consider that if you were to stop at associates degree… then you would be limited to 150% of the credits required for your degree & that means you would be cut-off @ 5-6 semesters… in order to use remaining semesters, you would need to continue for bachelor’s degree

What advice does anyone have for me if I want to start a quality website of fanfiction for some of my favorite anime characters? I don’t have a clue as to where to begin. I only know of one fanfiction site that is spectacular and I would like to create my own site that is just as nice. Only serious responses please! Thanks, guys.

Is having an online business easier or harder than owning a store?

1. What are the pros and cons of running an online business?
2. What are the pros and cons of running a store?
3. Which would you rather have?

These days an online store costs much less to operate. The overhead costs are greatly reduced as well and you don’t have to pay rent. Marketing is critical with online stores and you need to do a lot of market research which you can conduct yourself. Online stores can be FREE to start and can cost as little as $19 per month up to $199 a month according to product selection. You can market via facebook or any social media network, you can market using google PPC, Commission Junction is another tool you can Utilize to generate extra income. There are backlinking places you can join in order to generate even more traffic.

Online stores also give you access to more competition and more potential customers. But overall the costs i much less to operate and can be just a profitable if not more when you market right.

The Good and Bad of Reseller Hosting

March 9th, 2013 4 comments

While reseller hosting can prove to be a decent source of online income, the business could entail a few unforeseen downsides. A few tips and guidelines would help you make the most of your reseller hosting business and with the right expertise and knowledge; your reseller account would soon be generating good income for you.

It is important to establish trust with the hosting company from whom you wish to buy the reseller-hosting package. In order to achieve this, the potential reseller is required to perform an in-depth research on the company, its services, its support system, pricing structures, features and tools offered, infrastructure of the data center, its reliability, uptime, credibility and much more.

Among the aforesaid, uptime is something that needs prime consideration. You do not want to be dealing with a hosting company that cannot offer a decent uptime of at least 99%. Worst would be that in case of a technical error or unexpected downtime, the customer r reseller is unable to reach the company. This would just spell ruin for both the parent host as well as the reseller business. Therefore, you need to be associated with a company that offers maximum uptime and highly professional hosting services and products.

A good approach would be talk to other users as well as resellers through online discussion forums, blogs and read their testimonials and reviews. In fact, there are a few web hosting directories that offer unbiased reviews and ratings on web hosting companies. You need to be however wary about the reliability of these reviews and ensure that these reviews are received through an unbiased source. The best way to ascertain this is to focus on reviews that highlight both the negatives as well as positives of the company’s services and products. Reviews that equate to promotional content are in all probability unreliable.

Another aspect is the pricing structure for the various hosting packages. The reseller needs to analyze whether these prices are well aligned with the hosting market or is the service unreasonably priced? The pricing would of course be dependent on the quality of services offered. The parent host should be equipped with advanced software and hardware in order to deliver high-end hosting services to its customers. This way, the reseller can be assured that he/she is dealing with a company that utilizes advanced web hosting technology.

On the flip side, if the reseller ends up being associated with a company that does not deliver quality services, the business would only decline and perhaps eventually lose out in the competitive hosting industry. It is precisely because the hosting industry is getting fiercely competitive that is becomes all the more important to sign up with a company that delivers high quality services and hosting products.

Most important is the type and quality of customer support offered. A reliable and professional host would offer 24/7 support and this aspect is never overlooked by a discerning reseller or potential customer.

How do I go about getting a job?

March 8th, 2013 2 comments

I just turned 16 and my parents want me to get a job for the summer, but I don’t really know how to go about that. I know I have to get a job permit (Someone mentioned I have to get it from my school?) and then fill out an application for a store. If somebody could go into more detail on the steps, it’d be great appreciated! Thanks!

Here’s a short list of jobs which you can create to generate income:

1. Learn calligraphy so that you can provide handwritten invitations and thank you notes to prospective wedding parties, birthday celebrations, etc. Seek out clients through wedding planners at nearby churches and temples. A starter calligraphy kit usually runs around $20 and anyone can easily pick up this skill. The going rate is usually $1 per hand addressed item.

2. Seek from your neighbors a gardner position which involves planting, weed removal, plant/tree trimming, light brush clearance. You will be using the neighbor’s equipment and tools. Again, do not represent yourself as a lawn mower since there are any number of safety issues involved. A door-to-door solicitation of surrounding neighbors is required and you can charge between $6 to $9 per hour.

3. Offer policing/removal or clearance of trash services to surrounding neighbors which involve trash pickup within nearby residential area. Limit the extent of pickup to small areas and be aware that there are no hazardous terrain or elements involved in this process. Again, a door-to-door solicitation of neighbors is in order. You can charge between $6.75 to $7.50 per hour.

4. Acquire a set of window cleaning tools [a bucket, liquid window cleaner, sponge, squeegee, handle with an extension and a small step ladder] and solicit local businesses for your window cleaning services. However, be careful to limit the height of the window cleaning to no higher than one story. Charge $1 per window panel.

5. Why not become a paid feeder servicing the disabled at nearby nursing, convalescent, assisted living/care centers and hospitals. It involves feeding food to patients who are unable to feed themselves. The starting rate is $8.00 per hour. The only downside is that one has to take precautions to wash one’s hands after each feeding. A posting of your services [by a business card or flyer] on a reviewable bulletin board would be enough to generate customers. The paid feeder position is one of the fastest growing occupation at this time.

Good luck!

Making Easy Profits Using PPC In Your Affiliate Marketing Business

March 5th, 2013 8 comments

PPC is one of the four basic types of Search Engines. PPC is also one of the most cost-effective ways of targeted internet advertising. According to Forbes magazine, PPC or Pay Per Click, accounts to 2 billion dollars a year and is expected to increase to around 8 billion dollars by the year 2008.

Let us take a quick look at how PPC Search Engines work.

These engines create listings and rate them based on a bid amount the website owner is willing to pay for each click from that search engine. Advertisers bid against each other to receive higher ranking for a specific keyword or phrase.

The highest bidder for a certain keyword or phrase will then have the site ranked as number 1 in the PPC Search Engines followed by the second and third highest bidder, up to the last number that have placed a bid on the same keyword or phrase. Your ads then will appear prominently on the results pages based on the dollar amount bid you will agree to pay per click.

How do you make money by using PPC into your affiliate marketing business?

Most affiliate programs only pay when a sale is made or a lead delivered after a visitor has clickthrough your site. Your earnings will not always be the same as they will be dependent on the web site content and the traffic market.

The reason why you should incorporate PPC into your affiliate marketing program is that earnings are easier to make than in any other kind of affiliate program not using PPC. This way, you will be making profit based from the clickthroughs that your visitor will make on the advertisers site. Unlike some programs, you are not paid per sale or action.

PPC can be very resourceful of your website. With PPC Search Engines incorporated into your affiliate program, you will be able to profit from the visitors who are not interested in your products or services. The same ones who leave your site and never comes back.

You will not only get commissions not only from those who are just searching the web and finding the products and services that they wanted but you will be able to build your sites recognition as a valuable resource. The visitors who have found what they needed from you site are likely to come back and review what you are offering more closely. Then they will eventually come back to search the web for other products.

This kind of affiliate program is also an easy way for you to generate some more additional revenues. For example, when a visitor on your site does a search in the PPC Search Engine and clicks on the advertiser bided listings, the advertisers account will then be deducted because of that click. With this, you will be compensated 30% to 80% of the advertisers bid amount.

PPC is not only a source of generating easy profits; it can also help you promote your own site. Most of the programs allow the commissions received to be spent for advertising with them instantly and with no minimum earning requirement. This is one of the more effective ways to exchange your raw visitors for targeted surfers who has more tendencies to purchase your products and services.

What will happen if you when you integrate PPC into your affiliate program?

PPC usually have ready-to-use affiliate tools that can be easily integrated into your website. The most common tools are search boxes, banners, text links and some 404-error pages. Most search engines utilize custom solutions and can provide you with a white-label affiliate program. This enables you, using only a few lines of code, to integrate remotely-hosted co-branded search engine into your website.

The key benefits? Not only more money generated but also some extra money on the side. Plus a lifetime commissions once you have referred some webmaster friends to the engine.

Think about it. Where can you get all these benefits while already generating some income for your site? Knowing some of the more useful tools you can use for your affiliate program is not a waste of time. They are rather a means of earning within an earning.

Best know more about how you can use PPC search engines into your affiliate program than miss out on a great opportunity to earn more profits.
