SPECIAL: Linknami Review

If you are a professional blogger (i.e. earning money through blogging) or a website owner, after ensuring having a high quality content and attractive user interface, what is the next thing that come to your mind? I believed most of you will say TRAFFICS! Yes, traffics is liken the life blood of your website/blog ie no traffics = no leads = no conversion = no sales = no $$$. In short, your blog/website = nothing!

Thus, it is important to expose your blog/website to as many other relevant blogs/websites as possible. Usually this is done through backlinking. Basically, there are two ways to go about it i.e. you can either do your own backlinking (if you can afford the time/effort) or get someone else to do it for you (if you want a faster and more targeted result). 

For the latter, recently I've chanced upon an online advertising network called Linknami, what caught my eyes is actually the comprehensiveness of the link-building/advertising options that this network is providing. By far, this is one of the most complete link-building/advertising options that I've ever seen. 

Just to elaborate further, following are the available advertising options in Linknami:
1. Banner Ads
2. Text Ads
3. Text Links
4. Content Snippets
5. Paid Blog Posts
6. Sponsored Articles.
7. Social Media Ads.

With so many options available, I am sure there is/are one (or two) that is suitable for your blog/website.

Also, just like any other online advertising network, they do provide Publisher Account as well. In short, if you are a professional blogger, this could be another potential source of online income for you!

Registration for both Advertiser and Publisher Account is FREE, do check it out if targeted traffics (visitors) is something you are looking for.

5 Lesser Known Social Media Sites That Might Make It Big!

Participating in Social Media or Social Networking sites should be a key element of your overall internet marketing plan, regardless of the size of your venture. With the recent global craze of smartphones/tablets adoption, the social media has already went one step further to become a "real time" social connection (i.e. the consumer is expecting super-fast response of their feedback/questions posted on the social media).

Of course, when come to social media, the giants like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Youtube and LinkedIn are the mainstream players (which are the must have for all internet marketers). Today, I am going to share 5 of the lesser known "new" kids on the block which some of them have potential to make it big, some day (you have been warned!):   

1. Spling - Works something like StumbleUpon for user to share the interesting sites/blogs/medias. Following is the extract from the Spling official site :

"Spling is a social platform focusing on content discovery and media sharing. Our goal is to make sharing and discovering cool and relevant links as easy as possible. We allow users to share any link with anyone in the single click of a button, while creating a repository where they can store and sort their favourite links. Users can share with friends, groups, or the community at large. Simultaneously, we allow the users to explore and consume Internet content filtered through their friends, families, and communities—the people they trust and care about—thus ensuring a guaranteed quality of content."

2. Unthink - A new social media platform that trying to achieve what facebook is doing, but with a tinge of unconventional tone! Following is the extract from the Unthink official site:

"UNTHINK is an all-in-one social media platform that enables you to connect with the world around you and collaborate with others to bring the change you want to see in the world.
It is a Community with a Shared Way of Thinking.
Our mission is to emancipate social media and unleash people’s extraordinary potential. Our -not so covert- mission is to spark a revolution that will change the world."

3. Folkd - Another platform work something like StumbleUpon i.e. for social bookmarking/searching the interesting sites/blogs. Following is the extract from the Folkd site:

"Using social bookmarks with will enrich your web-surfing experience. We provide a simple website and easy to use browser buttons which allow you to:
- Save your favourite links and bookmarks online and access them from anywhere at any time.
- Press our "star"-button to vote up the best links on the web with just one click.
- Search the most popular links and discover cool sites your friends liked.
- Easily recommend the best sites to your friends via email, facebook or twitter.
- Connect to interesting users to follow their latest links.
- Search and organise your collection by tags and keep private things private!"

4. BuzzFeed - Another platform work something like StumbleUpon but with more sleek and bold user interface, it will definitely be more appealing to younger generation. Following is the extract from the BuzzFeed official site:

"BuzzFeed Tracks the Web’s Obsessions in Real Time

We feature the kind of things you’d want to pass along to your friends: an outrageous video that’s about to go viral, an obscure subculture breaking into the mainstream, a juicy bit of gossip that everyone at the office will be talking about tomorrow, or an ordinary guy having his glorious 15-minutes of fame. And when you read BuzzFeed, you’ll always know the movies, music, and products that are on the rise and worth your time."

5. Quora - Quora is a platform for learning and sharing whereby you can post a question or answering question posted by another members. Following is the extract from the Quora official site: 

"Quora connects you to everything you want to know about. Quora aims to be the easiest place to write new content and share content from the web. We organise people and their interests so you can find, collect and share the information most valuable to you.
When you want to know more about something, Quora delivers you answers and content from people who share your interests and people who have first-hand knowledge -- like real doctors, economists, screenwriters, police officers, and military veterans. On Quora, it's easy to create a personalized homepage of everything you want to know about by following topics, questions, people and boards."

I am not implying that we need to get involved in all the above but it is important for internet marketers to be aware of what is happening in the social media space. Failing which, we will not know what we are missing out!

Hope you like my sharing.

Residual Income For Everyone!

Nowadays, regardless of what profession you are in, we need to explore multiple sources/streams of income so as to built up our nest egg to ensure that we are having a comfortable living condition. Ever since the invention of the web, creating extra sources of residual income online is no longer a difficult task that can be assumed by selected few.

Unlike earning residual income by investing in share, gold or forex etc, which usually require a size-able capital, earning residual income online is usually free except some minimal investment if you are building and promoting your own site/blog (i.e. the cost for buying the Domain name, hosting and online advertising etc...). Many a time, as long as you know the relevant knowledge and skills, you can earn the online money with little or no investment at all. As the saying goes, Knowledge is king, in the online space, knowledge is your currency! ;-) 

One of the easiest way to get involved in the online earning bandwagon is through affiliate marketing i.e. earning commission by promoting other people's products/services. Be creative with all the free online channels that made available to you like all the social media sites, forums, blogs and email blasting etc...Your creativity will be your earning power!

Just to recap, following are two of such programs/networks (from healthcare niche) with huge residual income potential:

1. Skinny Body Care (Health niche)
2. Body By Vi Challenge (Health niche)

One more thing to highlight. As far as online earning is concern, there is no limit on how far you can go as the platform is marketed globally, 24x7. It's totally up to YOU!

SPECIAL: How famous are you in the online space?

For every individual or company who has online presence, would agree with me the importance of being "famous" in the online space. To put it simply, everyone would want to be the "Top xx" in your respective online presence. This is utmost critical or else your site/blog will be buried underneath millions of other blogs/websites.

In the online world (especially from the internet marketing perspective), traffics is the life blood of your existence. Without traffics, your blog/website is equivalent to non-existence. This explains why Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is so important as everyone wanted to be found!

The good news is, in the online world, practically you can achieve anything as long as you have the right tool(s) and apply the right knowledge/skills (of course, occasionally some investment might be unavoidable). However, if time and knowledge is not in your hand, you can always resort to investing in the traffics generator to quantum leap your sites/blogs into the hall of fame!

That is exactly what the TopFamous100 is offering: buying your own fame in the online space. I must say that the solution provided by this site is one of the most original idea that I have came across. Basically, this site offers a platform for your to buy the advertisement slot (banner) for as long as $1. There are only a total of 100 slots available. Thus. as long as you are within the top 100s advertisers/buyers, your banner will be listed in the Famelist of TopFamous100 permanently. Of course, to move to the top, you need to buy the most "positions". The model is simple but the potential is tremendous for your to get famous and at the same time generate the traffics.  

If you are looking for avenue to boost your blog/website traffics and to be "famous" (in the famelist of the site), do check out this traffics generator site.


SPECIAL: Just Been Paid!

In the current internet age, there are countless people making money online around the clock, as the internet is a platform/marketplace that never sleep. The truth is, it is no longer a myth to be able to earn money online. If you are still skeptical on making money online, I guess you might not be interested in what I am going to share next. However, if you are open for online exploration, read on...

As I've shared before, there are many ways to earn money online, the most common avenue which requires a little bit more time is through providing online services (like article writing, completion of micro-jobs etc...) or promoting another person/company's product or services through advertising or affiliate program, just to name a few.

Today, I am going to share an out-of-the-box type of Cycler or Feeder Program* called Just Been Paid. It is taking the online space by storm recently i.e. hundreds of new members joining the program on daily basis. Basically, how it works is to buy the positions online ($10 per position, multiple purchases allowed) and you will be getting back 2% daily, up to 75 days. And that's it!

In short, it means that a $10 investment will have a total return of $15 at the end of 75 days. There is no product/service to be sold or downline to be be built. I've done some research on the internet about this program, I must say that I've seen a lot of payment proof out of this program and many long term internet marketers are joining the force too. 

I personally view that the key selling point of this program is it's instant gratification of daily earning (even though it's a mere 2%) that you are expected to see automatically credited into your account. It creates such an huge positive psychological effect that you are actually "earning" money on daily basis. You can withdraw the earning or re-invest it to buy more positions for the compounding effect. 

If you are looking for easier way to earn money online and do not intent to spend considerable time/effort online, you can check out this program and see whether this program suit your investment appetite. 


Cycler/Feeder Program* is deemed as an investment program with considerable risk (as in with any other investment). Thus, do explore the program with caution and know your investment capability/limit!

SPECIAL: Get Healthy, Win Prizes, Earn Money!

If I post you a question, health and wealth, which is more important to you? I believed most of you would answer both are equally important. I tend to agree on this one, as missing either one, you can't really enjoy life to the fullest.

That's exactly the reason why in the internet marketing arena, health and weight loss product/program are so much popular than the other niches. As per my previous review of the similar program, recently, I've chanced upon yet another promising program called Body By Vi Challenge which provides high quality and effective products with generous compensation plan.

This 90 Day Challenge has already helped people lose millions of pounds! Close to 50,000 new people are joining the Challenge every month...that is over 1,000 a day! The Body by Vi Challenge was created by ViSalus Sciences®, the company behind one of the fastest growing health movements in the world.

ViSalus is challenging the world to set a personal goal and make health a priority for at least 90 days, while awarding the participants with over $10,000,000 a year in free product, prizes and vacations. Body by Vi was even featured on the latest cover story of Success From Home Magazine, and mentioned in the Wall Street Journal.

So, if you are interested in "Get Healthy, Win Prizes and Earn Money" online, do consider exploring this program that's with huge potential.

SPECIAL: Legal Track - Case Matter Management Software

In Internet Marketing world, we often need to deal with legal terms or jargon that we are not comfortable with. For example, when we are signing-up those advertising or affiliate networks, there are pages and pages of Terms and Conditions that the networks expected us to go through and agree upon.

Not to worry, I am not going to share any legal jargon or technical stuff here! What I am going to share is the software/tool that I chanced upon recently which is useful for legal sector! It's a matter management software called Legal Track. it is a full fledged case management software that is targeted at Legal Firms, Universities, Government, Insurance and any organization that require maintaining and tracking detailed customer related issues and files. 

What makes this software a beauty is it's seamless integration with productivity softwares like MS Words, Excel and Outlook. Also, it's comprehensive CRM (Customer Relationship Management) features as well as the mobile integration capability makes it even harder to resist. For the full list of it's key features, please refer to feature of case management software.

San Jose Jumper, Bounce House, Party Rental - Fantasy Jumperz

Once again, it is around the year end holiday season, a season for fun, sharing, gathering and laughing. Let's put behind all the Internet Marketing related work(s) for awhile and focus on how t have fun. As the saying goes, "All work no play makes Jack a dull boy"! So, I promise no IM (internet marketing) stuff in this post.

Talking about fun and laughing, I believe kids can understand their true meaning better than the adults. The other day, when I walked passed the park near my house (whereby some sort of carnival is taking place at that time), the first thing that caught my attention was the laughter from the kids. Next, the colourful bounce houses that were flooded with kids. I can sensed their happiness and nothingness in their head, except ENJOYMENT.

Talking about the bounce house and jumper, recently I chanced upon a site called Fantasy Jumperz, from San Jose whereby it offers Jumpers rental, bounce houses rental and many others for all kind of events or celebration (as long as kinds are involved). So, if you want to make the kids happy during this festive season, this could be one of the option you can consider. For more details, do check out their site at San Jose Jumper Rental.

Following are some model of the jumpers/bounce houses available:

SPECIAL: Instant Money Network

If you are the resident of USA or Canada, like trying FREE trial of products/services, you will be interested with my sharing in this post. Recently, I've chanced upon a network called Instant Money Network which enable you to make money instantly by referring others to try out FREE offers from well known companies.

As this network is mainly working with companies (advertisers) who provide FREE trail products/services, thus, there's nothing to buy and nothing to sell. Also, it's free to join. How this network works is that once you've registered, you will be presented with a list of FREE trial offers that you can start to sign-up yourself and/or promoting to others (through your site/blog or social networking sites like Facebook or twitter etc...). Any sign-up of FREE trial referred by you will earn you commission of up to $20 per referral (or up to $160 per referral for upgraded members).

As I am not from USA or Canada, it's a shame that I am not eligible to participate in this network, but it sure looks interesting and promising. If you are looking for another opportunity of online earning, check out their official site at Instant Money Network for more details.


SPECIAL: Buy Traffic

If you have a website or blog, traffics (visitors) is liken to the lifeblood of your website or blog. Without traffics, your site/blog is non-existence. This explains why the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is so critical in Internet Marketing arena.

However, to invest in SEO takes time and effort, thus, many internet marketers or site owners resort to buying traffics from the online provider. There is no right or wrong as long as it serves your objective of getting targeted traffics (as best as possible) and it helps to enhance your site's online presence in the following area:

1. Increase sales/conversion
2. Improve your Google PageRank (PR)
3. Impove your alexa ranking
4. Increase your website popularity

There are many online networks around in selling web traffics. For me, I would recommend Buy Web Traffic which provide many variation of packages in competitive price. You can also select whether to target on worldwide traffics or only USA traffics and all traffics are human traffics. Also, all traffics will start to be delivered within 24 hours. Of course, the most important part is that the price is very competitive e.g. for the 1,000 USA traffics package, it costs only $9.

If you are looking to expand your traffics/visitors base quickly, do consider Buy Web Traffic.


SPECIAL: Your Customised Pre-paid Business Master Card

In the present world whereby almost everything are being transacted(bought/sold) online, one tiny little card that we can't do without is called Credit/Debit Card. Nowadays, It is a necessity if you are an individual or business owner whom need to transact anything online (like online purchase or eCommerce).

I am sure most of you would have one or few of this magical little card. To go one step further, what if you can customise your card to reflect your personality, interest or brand? It will be distinctively yours. For business user, it can be used as your pivotal branding vehicle. Recently, I've chanced upon an online pre-paid Master card provider called NetSpend that allows you to do just that. 

As for the customisation of your own card, you can make use of their simple to use tool called "Picture It Card Creator", for a nominal fee of $4.95. The best part is that you can make use of your own images in any of these formats: .jpeg; .jpg; .gif; .png; .tiff; or .bmp (support up to 10 MB per image).

SPECIAL: Skinny Body Care (Part 3: The Bentley Club)

Oh wait! I am still on the Skinny Body Care weight management product, I just can't get enough of this popular program ;-). In my last post, I talked about the ingredients that make it a success. Today, I am going to share the other aspect of this program: their attractive pay plan, which aimed to make you (or the affiliate) a success.. There are a total of 8 ways whereby the affiliates can earn money from and I single out their Bentley Club bonus plan as one of the best.

Following is the direct extract of what Bentley Club is all about:

Unlike any other car bonus ever seen in the entire industry, with the Skinny Body Care Bentley Club, you can earn the car of your dreams completely paid off 100%.

Most car bonuses require you to use your own credit to qualify to lease or purchase a car, as well as using your own money for the downpayment just to get it. The challenge with this model is that many people can never even get the car they qualified for because they either don’t have the credit or they don’t have the money for the downpayment. Even worse, the ones who are able to get the car often get stuck having to make the payments out of their own pocket if they lose their qualification for a month or two.

When you qualify for the Skinny Body Care Bentley Club by helping 3 people in separate legs of your organization achieve the rank of Royal Crown Diamond, we will buy you a brand new Bentley that is yours to keep FOREVER, even if you were to lose your qualification...we’ll even pay the taxes for you!

Mind you, Bentley Club is only 1 out of the overall 8 comprehensive pay plans from Skinny Body Care! Check out their site to find out more details.

SPECIAL: Skinny Body Care (Part 2: The Ingredients)

On 11/11/2011, I've written about the weight management product Skinny Body Care,  after gone deeper into the program, the answer is inside the bottle: the ingredients. So, I thought it is good for me to share the gist of this product that make it stands out.

As we all know, the most important success factor of any health product is it's ingredients, or the qualities/benefits of the ingredients. The success of Skinny Body Care is attributed to the following proprietary blend of ingredients:

1. Glucomannan

Glucomannan is a unique all natural soluble dietary fiber defined on Wikipedia as “a food additive used as an emulsifier and thickener.” Believed to expand in your stomach to make you feel full, Glucomannan may help suppress your appetite to overcome the #1 enemy to weight loss, overeating and cravings.
In addition to the potential weight supporting benefits, Glucomannan has been shown to have other health benefits such as supporting healthy cholesterol levels and more. Glucomannan is a true wonder ingredient!
2. Carralluma, the Natural Appetite Suppressant!
Caralluma is a plant, in the cactus family, that has been used as a natural appetite suppressant in India for centuries particularly in times of famine.

Again, as defined in Wikipedia, "It is also used for its purported ability to suppress hunger and appetite and enhance stamina. It is believed to have an effect on the appetite control centre of the brain."

3. Chá de Bugre - The Brazilian Secret
Along the coast of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, beauty is defined by how you look in a bikini. And one of the favorite ingredients used in beachfront restaurants and refreshment stands is Chá de Bugre…one of the key ingredients in Skinny Fiber.

In addition to being used as an appetite suppressant, Chá de Bugre may also support a healthy metabolism. In fact, it is brewed in large drums at times of festival in Brazil, so that people can drink it to sustain their energy.

Hope that the above sharing will help you understand more of this popular program.
