Writing Guest Content - What, How and Why?

Guest Post by Andy Walton

Last week, I wrote a guest post for this blog Money Maker Info about my site www.wikinut.com and the guest post was published to this blog audience. Writing content for other people has obvious benefits for them, but what are the upsides for you? So just one week on, I thought it would be interesting to assess what I gained from the exercise.

What to write?
This is perhaps the easy bit, so I'll just offer 3 suggestions here:

1) Be original. By this I don't mean some new work of genius, I simply mean don't just cut and paste from another author. It shows little respect for site owners if you try to pass some obviously copied work off as your own.

2) Target your writing. Spend a little time browsing the site to which you are submitting. Get a flavour for the type of content they publish, the topics and styles. Try to tailor your copy to suit the site.

3) Write what you know. Stick to subjects about which you feel knowledgeable and comfortable. This will make the piece easier and quicker to write, and should make your post more readable.

How to submit your post?
Find a contact address on the site, and if possible try to write a personal email to the owner or editor.

Explain the background to your post, what you are offering (free use to publish and modify) and what you expect in return (an author credit, a bio, a link to you site, etc).

Why should you bother?
OK, this is the interesting bit. There are quite a few motives for offering content - ego, self-promotion - but mine was to raise the profile of my new site. Therefore, I wrote a page about how Money Maker Info blog readers could earn money writing content for Wikinut.

Primarily I was looking for exposure. So 7 days later, did I get any? Here are the stats:

1) A search on Google for the (unique) first sentence of my post returns 173 results.

2) This results are spread across dozens of different sites.

3) A Twitter search returns over 20 tweets directly referencing my article - never mind related tweets

4) And without giving away too much, the Make Money Online blog directly sent hundreds of motivated visitors - many of who signed up.

This demonstrates the power of the web - a single post can rapidly spread across the internet via a variety of methods and mediums. Remember, these results are just 7 days old. So why not think about guest writing yourself?

Top 7 Reasons Why You Fail as an Affiliate Marketer

Guest post by Dante

Why do so many fail if it is supposedly so easy? It is easy isn't it? That is what you will hear from every successful marketer out there who has got past all the real work involved. To give you a good idea of how to overcome failure here are my top 7 reasons affiliate marketers fail to make any money online.

1) You get too anxious. Look I know when you first start out you will run into a sales page describing the easiest way to make money online. Then you feel you must make millions right away no matter what. Then what happens? You find out there is some actual work involved. Of course there is hard work involved, it is a business just like any other type.

2) The benefits get lost in translation. Now affiliate marketing probably is unanimously voted as the best way to make money online among all internet marketers. There are some great benefits you will find in practically no other job like working when you want, working from home, and no phone calling. But with benefits like that you know there will be some catch and that catch is the hard work of setting up campaigns and sites to presell your potential customers.

3) The term "lazy affiliate" is quite popular. When other successful affiliates talk about how they make money by doing nothing all day it gives other affiliates the impression that they can be lazy and the money will start to flow into their bank account. Do not have this haapen to you. For some affiliates they can be lazy but only because they set everything up on AUTOPILOT and that is the trick to becoming a lazy affiliate.

4) You are still looking for the "right" system. There is no secret system. Get it through your head! Quit searching all over the warrior forum or new clickbank products that have these claims. They all relate to the same exact approach and that is, you guessed it, working hard and applying what you know until you see results.

5) Affiliates are trying to be a "jack of all trades". I am sure you have heard the saying, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket.". When you are starting out you should stick to one strategy at a time until you get it right and start seeing profit. Then you can move on to something else. What many affiliates do is start off the cheap way since they are on a budget and set up affiliate sites. Then they go for something that costs money but not that much work involved like setting up PPC campaigns on google adwords.

6) You work hard and not smart. Quit going at affiliate marketing blindly and start learning what works from the successful affiliates. There are some excellent affiliate programs out there that will go into great detail about what it is you need to do. There are some that are really worth it but you should not give up and try a different system until you make that first one work. Get educated and save yourself time and energy.

7) The downers got to you. You know those people that will say that anything associated to making money online is a big scam? They can easily kill any dream you have to make a full time income from home. You know it is possible. So do yourself a favor and shut your mouth about your affiliate business so they cannot bring you down. Work hard and then once you succeed they will be shining your shoes.

Author Bio:
I could go on all day. But all this can be summed up in a few words. Work hard and develop your own affiliate marketing strategy that works. Make money online and once all the learning and hard work has been done you will feel very good and hopefully be richer.

How to Invest in the Right Web Business

Have you chosen to open a business on the internet? Where would you start? If you stay online for long periods then there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't open a business on the internet. There are many resources available on the web that can benefit you. There are a lot of companies which are willing to work for you if you join them. Here are 5 ideas that will help you save time and money while starting your business.

1. You need to decide the amount of time you are going to spend on the business. Honestly, there are a large number of home based business owners that do not succeed as they do not want to put any time into it. If you have a day job and want to open an internet business at the same time, you should determine the amount of time you have to spend on the business. As soon as you decide the time you have make sure to give the business that much time regularly. Treat this business like any other business that you might take up.

2. You should decide on a particular business. Even if you're planning to sell your own products, you should consider joining another company so that you can build a little additional income by selling their products as well. Having a good mix of your own products & others products is healthy for your business. You cannot succeed in any business if you do not have fun doing it. The more fun you have, the more successful you will be. You can very easily earn a little extra money from this business or maybe a substantial income too. The main reason why businesses are so popular on the internet is because of the ease with which you can contact people.

3. Ensure that you have a designated work area prior to starting up your business. Be sure that you have a home based office set up. Get yourself an up to date computer and a high speed internet connection so that you will not face any problems with uploads as well as downloads. Also, you should get yourself a desk chair that is very comfortable and has sufficient support for your arms and back. Get yourself a mouse and keyboard which you feel comfortable with and ensure that you are surrounded by an organized environment when you get down to work. This helps you think a lot better.

4. How to invest. Before you start investing, you should be certain that this is the best business for you. If you are selling products that are not your own, you may be asked initially to invest some money in order to build up an inventory. You do need some money to start up any business but you should be sure that you have chosen the right one. You should set a budget so that your business does not start demanding too much of you. Never exceed this budget.

5. Use all skills and talents that are at your disposal. Perhaps you can design elaborate websites, or promote your website well. Use all your skills to ensure that your home business takes off and you never have to look back.

Thus investing in the right business is a wise thing, if you want to survive for a long time.

The Internet Marketing Tools that Make Money for You

Internet marketing is a good way make a living online. Through Internet marketing, you can promote affiliate products, sell freelance service or market your website; and in return you can make even more money than you make from your job. But Internet marketing has more competition so you need to be more creative and hardworking.

There are various tools for Internet marketing. These are the tools that can help you market your products successfully. Below are some of the Internet marketing tools available today:

Blog is one of the powerful Internet marketing tools that most of the online marketers are suggesting these days. Blogging will not cost you anything and it can potentially generate targeted traffic to your page for long term. Starting a blog is free using the blogging platforms like Blogger and Wordpress. Then you can introduce yourself, let other know what you are doing and start posting useful and interesting content that your targeted prospects are interest on. Keep updating your blog with good content to build traffic and creditability.

Once you have blogging for some time, your readers and visitors would have known you and you may then write blog posts about your products or write reviews on the affiliate products that you want to promote to your blog visitors.

Articles are another great way to get exposure for anything that you want to market online. The process of using articles to market your online business isn't complicated. You start by writing informative articles or 'how to' articles that are relevant to your product or business, include your website link in author bio of each of your articles and submit them to online publishing websites.

Your articles mustn't be written like sale pitches because the online publishing websites and article directories will not accept them. Make your articles easy to read, straight to the point and give some value to the readers. This will make the readers interested to click on your website link to find out more good information from you or know about your offer once they have finished reading your article.

Whatever product or service you are trying to sell online, there will be forums that are discussing topics related to what you are offering. The forums might not talk about products but what they are discussing and posting have a relation to what you are selling. For instance, say you are promoting online games and they are forums that discuss about how to play online games, the strategies they can use and so on. These forums certainly related to your products. The members of the forums are your potential customers. The question is how to direct these potential customers your site to buy your game products?

Participation is the answer. Joining and participating discussion in the related forums will enable you to establish an image in the forum communities. The key to building a good image in the communities is to contribute useful and valuable information that the members are looking for. Always be helpful in the forums and sharing good tips will gradually build up your name.

Add your website links in the signature line. Since you are providing valuable information frequently in the communities, the members who read you messages will see your link in your signature and probably follow your link to check out what you are offering or to get more useful information from you. So another free targeted traffic source to your business website.

How to Create Additional Income Stream through a Newsletter?

Guest Post by Anil Gupta

Did you know that you can also earn money online from newsletters which you send to your readers? If you have readers who follow your blog with great interest then you could even get them to sign up for your newsletter.

Most pro-bloggers on the internet gain additional revenue from newsletters. However, many bloggers have a question on how to attract readers to sign up for newsletters.

What are the Advantages of having a newsletter?

Having a newsletter is a great way to have readers keep returning to your blog. This will also create a sense of community which all bloggers should try to achieve. The main benefit of a newsletter is that it allows the webmaster to create an additional revenue stream apart from his main blog. Newsletters are becoming very important to propel the overall growth of a blog after a certain stage.

How to get readers to sign up for Newsletters?

The best way to lure your readers to subscribe to your newsletters is by offering them extra content which they will not find usually in your blog. That content should be useful and unique. So when your readers see that there is more content which is only accessible when you subscribe then they sign up for it. This is possible provided you provide good content. If the content in your blog are useful then chances are readers will know that your newsletter will be even more useful. Basically, newsletter

How to make money from Newsletter?

There are various ways to make money from a newsletter. The conventional ways to make money such as Adsense ads etc. are not possible to implement in newsletters. But there are more effective ways to monetize newsletters:

Direct Advertisement Space: If you have a nice number of readerships then you can opt for showing direct ads and sponsored links on your newsletter. This will be a far better paying than a Pay-Per-Click campaign.

Sell your Merchandise: If you have anything to sell relevant to the niche of your blog then you can use your newsletter to market your products.

Affiliate Marketing: This another lucrative way to make money from newsletters as you will be able to promote content to a more trusting audience therefore your chances of sale increase. However, be careful not to overdo it as this may harm your readership count and may cause them to unsubscribe.

Eventually, once you create a brand for your blog you can switch over to the paid version of newsletters but that is at a higher level.

It is worth considering this different stream of making money online. Have you tried providing newsletters on your blog, if so how successful were you to generate revenue from it? You can drop down the answers below.

Why Blogging?

Why start a blog? If you haven't noticed, blogs have taken the internet by storm. Bloggers are being created by the thousands each and every day. It's a fantastic way to interact with people about information, ideas, and opinions. It can be personal and intriguing.

Blog is the internet version for the term 'web log'. From opinions to random thoughts, it's a way to share information with the whole internet online world. Some blogs are general in nature, while others are specifically targeted to certain topics and readers. They can be used for advertising. You can promote products, services, or affiliate programs. They can be very lucrative when done correctly.

The power of the blog has been recognized by big companies. Anyone with a website of any kind can benefit from starting their own blog. There are many reasons for this power, and some of them are here:

Blogs enable you to stay in touch with your readers or subscribers. It keeps the lines of communication open for feedback and new ideas. It helps you to build a relationship of trust between you and your readers, so that they value the information you have, and will buy the products you push.

They're interactive, allowing your customers and readers to take an active role in the conversation. Other people can be a great source of insight into the theme of your blog. You should always try to have interesting and fresh information for your readers to take in so they'll continue to keep stopping by to visit your blog.

Blogs are also very simple in their make-up. You don't have to know any technical computer stuff to throw up and maintain a blog. The templates and editors are basically very simple and easy to use for the average person.

Another good benefit of a blog, is that you have total control over it. You can use it for reviews, or for information articles, or to push some product or service. Whatever your need is, a blog can supply you with a powerful way to reach many people.

When it comes to the search engines, they love blogs. They eat them up. A blog is one of the best ways to get high rankings in the search engines. If you update your content regularly, you'll find that the search engines pick you up much better than if you're slack on fresh content.

As far as advertising, blogs are one of the best ways proven for advertising most anything. If you have a lot of followers, and they find out about your product, then it won't be long before all the people they know are also in the know about it. And it snowballs from there. This is extremely powerful for selling. Blogging can be a very lucrative occupation, and many have quit their regular jobs to blog full time. So give it a shot, who knows, you may do very well.

Some Updates on MoneyMakerInfo.BlogSpot.com

I have been getting emails from web publishers and bloggers regularly asking for link exchange. Sorry, I was actually stopped doing link exchange for this blog for some time. The reason I'm not doing link exchange anymore is that I want to stop the increase of outbound links on this blog. As you can find in this blog, there were already a lot of outbound links on the sidebars and footers of the homepage. I'm getting worry if the increase of outbound links will against Google webmaster guideline. So, I'm not adding anymore outbound links.

If you want to get a link from my blog, I have a better arrangement for you. I was all the while accepting guest posts. The authors who published guest post on my blog will get two permanent anchor text links to their site and also gain targeted traffic. So, you may consider publishing a guest post on this blog. I prefer informative guest posts that are helpful to my visitors and readers. If you want to submit a post, visit the below link to get the full details about how to submit a guest post:


Another thing is that the recent update and change of Google have increased the traffic of http://moneymakerinfo.blogspot.com. My stat counter, Site Meter show that the daily unique visitors have gone up to about 1,800. That was about 28% increase from the average 1,400 daily unique visitors I used to get. I thank Google a lot.

The advertisers who have advertised or renewed an ad on this blog might have received a satisfying amount of targeted traffic. If you are an advertiser of this blog, hope you have enjoying getting the targeted traffic of this blog.

The 28% increase of targeted traffic to this blog doesn't come easy. For the past couple of months, I have worked hard on link building for this blog. And also I spent time on content creation. Like the recent long article (over 3,500 words) titled 'The Top Ten Free Ways to Get Money Online' which has published on this blog, I took days of time to research and write this article with the goal to provide really useful information to the visitors, searchers and readers of this blog so that they can start making money on the Internet. I'm thinking to write a few more long articles like this in future.

Set Goals to Help Make Money Online

Guest Post by Joe Land

Goals are an important part of a person's life. They help manage a persons dreams and make them sound more achievable in a way. Goals are the groundwork to success in my opinion because they are easy to make and can push a person to his/her limit in life. Now how does it relate to making money online? Well, there are many people who want to make some extra cash online. The problem is they have no idea where to start and what to expect. They are clueless and will probably get scammed unless they research and set goals for themselves.

Keep it simple

When it comes to setting goals in order to make money online, start out simple especially if you are new to the industry. Maybe your goal is to make $50.00 a month at the start; maybe it is to start a blog. Whatever it is make sure you do research and find out whats best for you. Don’t start out for example by trying to $10,000 a month. You will most definitely get scammed by someone. The I’m telling you to keep it simple at the start, is so that you can ease into the system. Once you gain some experience then your goals can get more lofty.

Achieving Your Goals

It doesn’t do any good to set goals that you are not willing to achieve. That is why I said to start out easy. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Making money online takes a lot of work. You will not be successful in making money if you do not put in the effort. Its that simple. Another important thing to know about setting goals is to limit the number of them. Only have 2-4 goals at once. That way it is a lot easy for you to manage them.

Example of Money Making Goals

Here are some examples of realistic goals that you might want to consider when first starting out on your quest of making money online.

1) Sign up with three paid survey sites.

2) Make $20.00 in the first month of working online.

3) Stay away from obvious scams.

Remember that goals are just a way to layout your overall plan of making money online. Don’t set goals just to set them. Really concentrate on achieving your goals and you will succeed in making money online.

Increase Conversion Rate With Keyword Research Software

Every Internet marketer knows the importance of using the right keywords for their marketing campaign. In fact, keyword research needs to be your top priority once you have decided the product that you are selling online.

There are plenty of keyword research software available online, so how do you decide which one is the right one for you? First of all, you have to be honest with yourself and use the software that suits your expertise level because every keyword research software have their unique features that differentiate it from the rest of the tools out there.

The next point that you need to consider will be the price that you have to pay in order to acquire the software for your usage. Some of the keyword software will require you to pay a certain price on monthly basis, while some of them will only require you to make a one time payment for the keyword tool that you purchase from them. Whatever your decision is, you need to start using keyword research tool because you’re putting money on the table if you don’t use it to discover new niches.

If keyword research and PPC campaign management is something that you are doing on daily basis, then you can consider getting the keyword research software with recurring monthly fee. But if you are only starting and need something that can help you analyze your keyword competition and new niches, then you should just get the software that only require you to pay once.

Keyword research software is an excellent tool that every online marketer that uses article marketing strategy and PPC advertising to promote their products and services because it will help you to find out the monthly searches and the competition that any keywords have on the search engines.

You can do it yourself by not relying on keyword research software but it will take you more time to do your keyword research. We all know that time is a very valuable asset that is extremely precious and shouldn’t be wasted on mundane task. I call it mundane task because keyword research is actually very simple but most people decide to spend several hours on it and decide to do nothing with the research that they have done.

The more advanced keyword research software will help you to find the number of monthly and daily searches that every keyword have and also the number of real competition that you have for the keyword that you are using.

You will need to think outside of the box and be creative with the set of keywords that you have gathered. This will make your potential customers to feel more ready to spend money on the products and services that you are promoting.

Learn how to do performance testing and compare the conversion rate that each keyword term brought for you. This way you can identify which keywords to use and which one to ditch. This step will maximize your return on investment because some keywords might not bring the conversion that you desire resulting more money being spent on PPC campaign and also more content creation.

Will your Blogging Idea Make you Money Today?

It is no longer enough just to have a great idea for a blogging web site. It can and will be hard to tell the difference between yours and all the other blogging sites on the web today. The secret is to find your own specialization, and roll with it. No matter if you are starting out, or improving your current blogging site, if you wish to grab a hold of and maintain a grip on the blogging community, you must use your own special appeal to your advantage.

This still leaves plenty to do though. Simply finding your specialty is only the beginning. You must be able to fill a unique need with it, if you wish to develop a lasting relationship with internet bloggers and surfers.

All successful blogging sites have started with a great idea, and yours is no exception. Nowadays, there are countless sites aimed at this market, and the competition growing between them is epic. If you wish to stand out from the rest, you have two choices. You can do the same thing an already popular site is doing – and do it better, or you will have to offer something that no other site has.

Take a look at sites that already have a following, and see if you can incorporate any of their fundamentals into your own idea, while adding your own genius and elegance to your project to make it unique. You can also set up AdSense on your site, which is easy and takes less than an hour.

Most people agree that in the World Wide Web economy, the sites that stand out and do the best are the ones with the most personality. The surfers who utilize the blogging community have been shown to respond strongly to this as well, and you need to take a look at how you can give your site a strong magnetism and traits to make it stand out as a reflection of your own persona when considering its content and development.

So once you’ve implemented your great idea, have narrowed down your specialty traits and added your own identity and charisma, the next step is to generate the buzz and get the word out. Just having the grand idea isn’t enough. You must come up with an intelligent and realistic approach to market it and bring traffic to target readers. With the other qualities in place, your content will keep them coming back, but it is crucial that their first visit will make a lasting impression, and their own style recognizes the charm of your site as appealing, so that it stands out among the rest.

Get the Top Selling Affiliate Marketing Course for Free

Last week I wrote about the $1 offer of Chris Carpenter's Google Cash Course, now you can get the course at no charge. Chris has just yesterday decided to give out his Google Cash Course totally free to fight the scam programs that used the similar name, 'Google Cash'.

The Google Cash Course was originally released by Chris Carpenter. Chris began by putting up his course for sale on Clickbank in year 2003. In just after the first week listing on Clickbank e-book marketplace, the Google Cash course turned out to be the best seller in the 'Money and Employment' category of Clickbank. The course then became the best seller for the next two years and people who are in affiliate marketing know the name of Chris Carpenter.

But in years 2008 and 2009, there are more and more scam programs showing up on the Internet using the similar name like Google Cash Kit, Google Cash Success Kit, Google Pro kit, and many more.

All these scam programs work the same way. They claim to offer a start-up kit that will guide you to start making good money with Google. Visitors who sign up for these kits will need to enter their credit card details and get charged a $2.95 (or a little more) shipping fee. The program will then send the kit to the visitors who signed up.

But many people have complained that they didn't receive the kit and get charged an expensive monthly fee of $60 to $80 that they have no idea what is it for after 7 days of sign up. Then you'll find it hard to cancel and getting refund of the expensive charge seems not possible.

These programs have been widely promoted to millions of people. So, be careful when you are searching for information about how to make money online. You could be presented with one of these programs and become another victim. If you like to know about these scam programs, you can read a previous post that I wrote about the Google Pro Kit Scam.

Anyway, what Chris offers is totally different from these scams. Chris's Google Cash Course is a step-by-step course teaching you how to start making money online using Google AdWords and affiliate programs. The course contains a lot of useful information and you get the chance to learn the successful methods that Chris has used to make a living online.

Google Cash Course used to sell at Clickbank for a price of $67 with 45 days money back guarantee. So, if you don't like it for any reason after purchase, you can request for a full refund. Certainly no way it is a scam.

OK now, since Chris wants to clear his name and fight the scam, he is giving out his Google Cash course for free. If you want to start making money from affiliate marketing but don’t know where to begin, this is the course for you.

Creating Money Making Affiliate Website Using Easy Website Builder

Guest Post by Paul Vrieling

If you want to make money online, then you have a few different ways to do it. One of the most popular ways is by using affiliate marketing. You find a good product to promote, get your links for tracking your sales and make a website. You drive traffic to the website and for every sale you make, you get paid. Sounds pretty easy, right?

Well, actually it's pretty hard! There is a lot of competition out there in the affiliate marketing world. You need an advantage to get your sites ranking high. Another major roadblock for most people is the fact that you have to make a website to make money this way. You can't just take your link and market that! That is not a good long term strategy and Adwords will take your ad of sooner or later if you use this method.

So, most people turn to Wordpress to make affiliate marketing websites. Wordpress has lots of cool features and plug ins, so if you are a technical genius - go for it! One of the hardest parts is creating a data base. Most newbies don't understand how to do this.

Well, thankfully one internet marketer finally came out with a better way. It's an affiliate marketing website builder that is super easy to use and has many of the same features marketers love with wordpress! You can create affiliate review sites in just minutes...Here's how.

1. Open up your favorite FTP program (Filezilla is mine, it's free)

2. Connect with your host on your domain name (this is very easy and they have directions)

3. Upload a file folder to your domain

4. Log into ---> YourDomainNameHere(dot)com/admin.php

5. You are DONE!

That's it! You just enter your domain name into your browser and add the admin.php part. You enter you user name and password and you are in the editor. You are now able to change titles, descriptions, add tracking codes, content, articles and more!

Much easier than using Wordpress with many of the same great features, such as:

1. Easy What you see is what you get editor and html mode for advanced users as well

2. Ability to update site and add content very easily

3. Automatically creates RSS feeds and a SITEMAP for you websites! This is great for SEO...

4. Automatically PINGS whatever sites you want every time you add new content! Hello Google!

5. Visitors to your sites can leave comments and rate the products you are promoting (you allow the ones you want to appear) creating an internet "buzz" about your products and boosting sales!

6. These sites were created to sell products and they work!

I was lucky enough to beta test the affiliate genie and I absolutely love it. I immediately built a website for a product launch that already went live. My review site was indexed in 2 hours and I was number one in Google within 2 days. There is proof if you click my link below...

Author Bio:
Affiliate Genie makes wonderful looking affiliate marketing websites that are designed to sell products. It is very easy to use and the sites are fully SEO optimized to get you traffic. For affiliates who can't wrap their heads around Wordpress or more experienced marketers who want to crank out powerful websites fast, it is your best bet for a professional looking website.

If you would like to learn more about the affiliate genie and see the proof of my website rankings after just a couple days using this product, then check out this link affiliate genie reviews or affiliate genie. One of the bonuses you'll get when you order from my site is a step by step guide of everything I do on a product launch to get my site to #1!

Choosing the Right Blogging Platform

So you’ve decided that blogging is for you to make money online. Now, one of the things you need to choose is which blogging platform to use. Selecting the right one will make your blogging days easy. Choose the wrong one, and you could end up never enjoying blogging again.

A blogging platform is a program designed to help you in managing your blog. From the first steps of creation, all the way to adding, editing and deleting posts, as well as approving or deleting comments. In addition to these common tasks, your platform may be able to enhance your blog with other elements as well. Therefore, it is important to spend time experimenting with different types available to see which platform is right for you.

Of course you want a user friendly blogging platform that allows you to customize your blog to make it unique. Don’t expect it to just fall right into your lap though, part of this process is to see which one suits you and your needs most ideally. Spend some time feeling them out and testing them before settling with your favorite choice.

When searching for the right one, it will help to know what you are looking for. Do you want one that is simple to use with less features perhaps, or perhaps a highly customizable one that adds features and enhancements is more for you.

One such platform, Moveable Type, is a highly customizable platform, but may be a poor choice if you do not have HTML or Javascript experience. If you are comfortable with code and computer languages or you are an experienced web master, this may be the choice for you.

Conversely, if you are not so technically savvy, an automated platform such as WordPress and Blogger may be your best route to success. If you don’t mind using templates, or are a new blogger, WordPress and Blogger offer an extremely user-friendly alternative for those without skills in coding.

You can’t get an accurate depiction of the best blogging platform out there though. You will have different needs and ideas for your blog than the next blogger. While you may find MoveableType the most appropriate choice, your best friend may find another program more rewarding and therefore, the best.

Also, don’t forget that blogging is as individual as personalities are, and there is no software that will satisfy each individual’s needs. There are many available, and this is because the developers are as individual as the bloggers, and create programs suited for many styles and aptitudes, including your own.

With Your WordPress Blog Start Making Money Today

Guest post by Andrew Rondeau

Have you heard of the thousands of bloggers out there earning over $1,000 per day? The online wealth flame is most certainly still alive, and with blogs set to transform the journalism and publishing industry, there's big money to be made with a well designed, highly targeted blog. No matter what subject you write about, there are thousands of people out there who are interested in your opinion, and are dying to hear what you've got to say.

So don't waste time with failed money making schemes. Focus on what's proven to bring in cash: blogging. With a simple Wordpress blog, you can establish your own online presence and create a scalable online income. While there are hundreds of ways to make money with a Wordpress blog, these four are our favorites:

#1: Use Google Adsense to generate blogging income

Advertising is the oldest and most stable form of online income, with hundreds of thousands of bloggers turning to Google's Adsense program to generate revenue from their blogs. Thanks to an extremely user-friendly interface, even an absolute beginner blogger can see results from their Adsense ad blocks, provided they've got a large enough audience to go with them. Focus on establishing readers and subscribers, then incorporate advertisements into your blog for maximum clicks and interest. Revenue might start out small, but with a large enough audience it will quickly snowball into something bigger.

#2: Sell your services using your blog

Are you a graphic designer or web developer? If you're a popular blogger, you've got an instant audience to advertise your services to. Even a simple Wordpress blog is enough to advertise your business on, and with a dedicated and targeted audience, you could see passive subcribers turn into active, paying customers. This strategy works best when your blog is focused on the industry you operate in. While any advertising is worth it, you'll get best results from advertising design services on your design blog, coding on your programming blog, and so on.

#3: Use affiliate programs to generate income

Affiliate programs are effectively online commission sales jobs. When a reader clicks through to an affiliate ad, they're taken to an online store, where you receive a portion of every sale made. This is a great way to monetize a blog that's product based, rather than industry based. Focus on driving leads to products that they're interested in, and use your blog to promote products that you know will sell.

#4: Add sponsored blog posts for extra income

If you've got a wide audience, companies would love to have you personally advertise their products. Banner advertisements can only do so much, and in an interconnected world it's best to have influential people do your selling. One way of generating blogging income is to use sponsored posts, which are essentially a sales pitch wrapped up in a blog post. Sometimes, companies will approach you with an idea for a sponsored post. On other occasions, you can custom design one yourself using affiliate links and a product you know your audience will love.

Don’t get me wrong, doing all of the above is not going to make you $1000 a day within weeks or months. Blogging is hard work and takes a lot of commitment and persistence. But you do have to start somewhere.

Make a Blog Income Starting Today

Guest Post by Andrew Rondeau

Every day, thousands of people make a blog and take their first steps into blogging. While some end generating a large readership and eventually some blogging income, the vast majority of bloggers fail to amass even a single reader, and most don't make a cent from their blogging experiences. It's a statistic that's slightly alarming and potentially annoying to a lot of wannabe bloggers, however once you examine the true causes of failed blogs, and the true motivators for blogging success, you begin to see how blogging can actually be incredibly lucrative.

Most bloggers fail because of a lack of patience. They see the top bloggers bringing in thousands of dollars a day and reaching tens of thousands of people, and they think that they could be there overnight. As usual, the truth is different from the fantasy. While thousands of bloggers make it to Technorati's top listings, the vast majority end up disillusioned and disappointed after a few days, sometimes a few weeks, and end up leaving their blogs untouched for years.

In that way, blogging is like business. While millions of businesses fail every year, thousands grow into the giant companies that push the world economy forward. Generating blog income should be treated just like a business in order to have maximum success. Treat your blog as a revenue source, make strategic decisions to boost your earning and increase your influence, and experiment with different revenue streams. I've listed some of the best blogging revenue streams below, to help you boost your blog's earnings and increase your own blogging confidence.

PPC Advertising

By using PPC ads on your blog, you can generate a small (but potentially lucrative) income every time a user clicks through to another website. While it's smart to plan ahead for advertising strategies (especially if your blog advertises your services) general purpose blogs can easily generate thousands of dollars a month with good advertising placement.

PPM Advertising

If you'd prefer the security of a flat fee over the growth potential of PPC, cost-per-thousand advertising can bring in consistent and valuable income. While most small bloggers can arrange a PPM advertising program for their blog through a network, big blogs might like to look at offering independent advertising spaces and special one-off client rates.

Of course, part of establishing yourself as a powerful advertising resource is growing in size. Small blogs aren't great advertising earners, especially if they deal with relatively general subjects. This raises the question: What can small blogs do to earn blog income?

Start by offering your services, whether they're creative, technical, or business based. There are people out there that are willing to work with you, especially if they already read your blog. Make a blog to use as a promotional tool and you'll see opportunities not just for direct advertising income, but for indirect partnerships and contracting potential. The opportunities for blog income are endless, and with some drive and perception, it's easy to turn a small blog into a massive revenue bringer.

Bad News! Content is no longer King

Guest Post by Stephen Ng

Are you like me? Always believe that to do well online; you need to have great content? Well not anymore! Every other day, I try to write the best article for my readers like yourself and most of the time it will take me more than a day to write one good article.

In the process to write a good article, very often I have to research on the topic on what I am going to write. There are so many blogs out there and when I am unlucky, I won’t be able to gather any valid points to include in my article. Does this sound all too familiar to you as well?

Don’t get me wrong! I am not asking you to write junks to entertain your readers. If your reader wants to be entertained in this manner, they would have gone to YouTube and search for some comedy videos. Your visitor on your blog is hoping to bring home a lesson that they can be proud to share with their friends and that is what I hope to achieve in this post.

There are simply too many information that can be found on the Internet. If you have read a great article earlier on another blog does not mean that you won’t be able to read another article that is even better? You are not able to read the best article between these 2 blogs because the first blog is better with marketing and that is why you found him!

Having good content is important. Equally important is your marketing. It is similar to having great ideas without taking any action to bring it to fruition. I am not here to teach you how to write your article. Instead I am here to suggest that marketing is more important that good content. What is the use of writing a good article and when it is done, you forgot to publish it? Will your visitors get to read it? Therefore what I am trying to share with you is that Marketing is King and Content is Queen!

Blogging – An Extreme Marketing Tool for the New Century

Blogging today has become quite the force. People blog about almost everything, from politics and the news, to sports and business, even their own personal lives! Should you?

In marketing, there’s no doubt that blogging has become a highly effective tool. Is it right for everyone though? Maybe not, but it is a valuable way to add fresh content to most web sites.

All of the most highly used search engines, including Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask and MSN all expect webmasters to keep their sites updated often. Blogs provide a way to add fresh content capably and effectively.

This doesn’t mean that you need to flood readers and visitors with eBook novels to be a success though. In most cases the shorter and more to the point they are the better. A quick, well written piece of work is actually better than a long, boring narrative that no one wants to read. Fifty words with a few doses here and there of useful keywords will become magnets to search engines, and helpful information for your target audience will appeal to the human visitors you wish to turn into your customer base. Applying this three to seven times a week for a year will turn your website into the well oiled machine that search engines just love.

Not that it will take a full year though. You can achieve the same success in three to six months if you fill your blogs with entertainment, amusement, originality and unique content that will turn your readers into repeat customers.

If you are considering the use of blogging as a marketing tool in your future, don’t sell yourself short with only keeping an online diary for your writing either. A few keywords tossed around aren’t all it takes to make your blog a success. You must communicate with your audience which content is most informative, which is most entrancing, and what is benefitting to them. There are also two other forms of blogging growing more and more popular as well. Whichever forms you use will depend on you and your company’s objectives and ambitions.

These two types of blogging – audio and video – can also be just as effective if not more in some cases. This doesn’t mean they are for everyone though. Do you make a living with your voice, such as singing or public speaking? These kinds of talents can be a unique way of reaching customers who can assess and appraise your work also. Of course, perhaps everyday would be a bit much, but it’s good to keep your options open.

The same applies to video blogging. Maybe you are an actor or technician with talents related to production or direction of video? There is a lot to consider with this form of blogging nowadays, with internet video upload capabilities, affordable digital cameras, and software bringing it all together and becoming easier day by day. Blogging and the 21st century are upon us, and these powerful marketing strategies are beneficial to almost any and every business. These are all definitely worth checking out.

You can also use Social Media websites like Youtube, twitter, Facebook etc to improve your traffic level. More the traffic you get more your affiliate links would be seen.

The Top 10 Free Ways to Get Money Online

Finding a free way to make money online isn't easy and might take a lot of time. So, I put together 10 methods of making money online in this post to help you out. I have done research on these money making methods. They were legitimate and didn't cost you money to begin.

No. 10 - Paid Survey

You might already heard about paid survey if you have searched on the Internet for while. The Internet ads told you that you can make a living doing paid survey. So, is that really true? Well, the answer is of course no. The ad messages were exaggerated. But it's true that paid survey can potentially earn you extra cash in monthly basis.

How to begin?
It's simple. Just go to paid survey directory like Yellowsurveys.com and join as many market research companies listed in the directory as possible. There is also a list of companies that are listed under the 'Most Popular' in the Yellowsurveys.com directory. Make sure you join all the companies in the 'Most Popular' category.

The signing up process will take you hours of time since you are going to join many companies. But once you've have completed all the sign up, your work is done. What you need to do next is wait for the paid survey invitation emails send to you by these companies. Not every company pays cash to participants who completed survey. Some companies offer vouchers (Amazon, etc), gift and products.

Who can join?
Anyone over 18 years in US and Canada. Most companies welcome any country but the paid survey invitations are often fit for US and Canada residents only.

Patience is needed
Paid survey isn't a way to get fast money. You would have got a few surveys for the first month and earning less than $10 in total. But, when time gets longer, you might start getting more surveys regularly. At that time, you might get about $30 to $100 per month in average.

No. 9 - Reviewing Products and Services

The Internet users often want to search for supporting information before they purchase a product or a service to make sure they are making wise purchasing decision. They will go to the shopping information sites to find the supporting product information and advice.

The shopping information sites will help these Internet users by providing reviews written by those people who already tried the products or services. These product reviews are real and useful for the Internet users to make the right choice. So, the shopping info sites would hope to publish new reviews constantly. And therefore, the shopping info sites are inviting anyone to submit honest and straight forward review on the product or service they've used or tried. For each review that the shopping information site approved, the submitter will be paid.

You don't have to be a professional writer to write review. Writing product review is about sharing your experience and opinions about the product you have used. Just be straight forward and tell the truth will do.

Sites that pay for product review:

ReviewStream.com - Pay $2 per product review. But the review rate might change anytime. No registration needed to submit review. You'll earn also for each time a reader vote on your review. $0.10 per vote.

Sharedreviews.com - You'll need to register to create a profile in Shared Reviews. Then you can start review anything you like. Once you have written and published your reviews, they will be read and voted by your friends in the Shared Reviews community. Your review will be ranked based on votes and traffic. The more votes and traffic to your review, the higher your rank and the higher your earning would probably be.

SoftwareJudge.com - The site publishes reviews about software and online games. If you have something to say about a software or a game you have tried, you can share your opinion in Softwarejudge. The pay is between $1 to $50 per approved review depending on the quality.

No. 8 - Sharing Photos and Pictures

If you are passionate about photography, then you can turn your hobby into cash. Break.com was all the while paying users for uploading pictures that get featured on their picture gallery. You'll be paid $50 for each photo that Break chose to feature in their picture gallery.

How to begin?
Only registered members of Break can upload photo. Registration is free and can be done at this page. Once you have signed up, you can start uploading your photos.

You may take a look at Break Gallery first to see what sorts of pictures and photos that Breaks like to feature before uploading your photos. This will give you an idea of what photos have a better chance to be featured. Amazing, interesting or funny pictures are often good for getting featured in Break Gallery.

Some rules to keep in mind are that the picture that you upload must be original (not copying from other site) and you have the sole ownership to it. Otherwise, you wouldn't be paid even though your pictured got featured.

Another way to make money with your photos is by selling them in the stock photography sites such as IstockPhoto and Shutterstock. The webmasters, magazine editors, web designers, graphic designers, bloggers and other people who involve in the publishing field are paying monthly subscription to the stock photography sites. They choose to use what pictures they like for their publishing. Every time they choose to use your picture, you'll earn a small fee. So, the more people use your pictures, the more you'll earn.

If you have good volume of pictures and images to submit constantly to IstockPhoto and ShutterStock; and a few others are BigStockPhoto, GittyImages, Fotoliaia, etc, you could be earning consistent income with your pictures.

No. 7 - Uploading Files

Have you heard of websites that allow Internet users to upload files and earn money every time their file is downloaded by someone? There were actually quite a lot of these file-sharing websites offering this service. But because the pay is too low that many people become not interested on them.

However, there is a file-sharing website which I recently come across worth mentioning. The site is called Share Cash. Share Cash offers the users who upload files $0.20 to $0.60 per download. That's $200 to $600 per 1,000 download. The pay rate is very much higher than most other file-sharing sites which usually offer only $1 to $3 per thousand download. If you have interesting files to share with people on the Internet, why not share them through this site and earn more cash for each download of your file.

How to Begin?
You need to become a member of Share Cash to upload files. Registration is fast and easy. All you need to do is fill out the short form at http://sharecash.org/register.php and then you can proceed to upload your files.

To get good amount of download, you should upload something that many people will be interested to see. You'll want to share your file with as many Internet users as possible to maximize your earning. So, some marketing works are needed. You might try to post about it in related forums, invite your friends in social networking communities to download your file..... All these can add your download up and so as your earning. You can read more about tips of getting download at http://sharecash.org/tips.php.

Not every download earns
According to the users who have got paid, Share Cash is just looking for US and UK download. Users from other countries downloaded your file will most probably not counted for earning.

No. 6 – Freelancing

Nowadays, the Internet is full of freelance working opportunities. Most of these freelance job opportunities were posted on the freelance service websites by the companies and e-entrepreneurs who need help in their business.

The daily posted freelance job opportunities in these freelance websites include web design, seo advice So you can search through these freelance websites to find the freelance jobs and projects that you can work for and make some extra money.

How to Begin?
You may just start by becoming a freelancer (member) of Guru.com (a freelance service site). You'll be asked to create a profile to include your experience, education, skill, etc. Then you can access the Guru.com job board to search for the freelance works that are right for you and bid for them. They will be other freelancers bidding the same jobs as well. So, make sure you set your price lower and write your proposal well. Who to choose for the job is solely decided by the employer.

Who can join?
Anyone can become a freelancer regardless if you are living in Asia, Europe or US.

The alternative of Guru.com
If you find hard to get a job on Guru.com because of the tough competition there, you might try in Freelancefree.com and DigitalPoint Forum. Freelancecefree works the same way as Guru.com but the marketplace is smaller and so as the competition is lowers. Digital Point (DP) on the other hand is the largest webmaster forum. As a member of DP, you can post ads about your freelance services and also find freelance works that you're interested in the Buy, Sell or Trade section of the forum. There is also competition in DP forum, but getting works is easier.

No. 5 - AssociatedContent.com

The AssociatedContent (AC) is an established huge content network welcoming anyone to participate and contribute content on any topic.

AC has been rewarding content contributors constantly. They pay the members who submit articles in two ways:

1) Upfront Payment - A one time payment to the member for every article that the member submitted and get approved by AC. Usually $3 to $10 for each approved article. Only for US residents at the moment.

2) Performance Payment - It is the payment based on the traffic that your published articles received. The current rate AC offers is $1.50 per one thousand page views generated from your articles. This payment option works well with interesting articles that attract many readers.

This is an extra income opportunity for you if you like to write or have good writing skill.

How to begin?
It's simple to start publishing on AC. Just go to the AC Sign Up page, fill out the form, hit the 'sign up now' button and you are set to publish articles on any topic in AC.

To have a better chance for your articles to get accepted for upfront payment, you are suggested to write articles that wouldn’t lose value over time. How-to articles and guide on doing something are some of the good examples for upfront payment. And you should also do some researches on AC. Try to find topics that still haven't had many articles in them and then submit articles on these topics. These articles are more likely to get accepted for upfront payment.

For performance payment option, it seems harder to earn money because you get only $1.50 for per one thousand views generated by your published articles. But there is a strategy you can use to take advantage on the pay per thousand option. The strategy is to keep submitting articles to AC to build up a large collection of articles of yours. Many of your articles will soon attract traffic and from time to time you articles might build up good traffic and earn you passive income of $20 to $50 each month.

No. 4 - Writing and Selling Article Pack

In Associated Content, only US residents get paid right away for approved articles. International members can only submit articles for performance payment which pay $1.50 per thousand page views of your articles.

But in Digital Point Forum, everyone has the same opportunity to make money with articles. As mentioned before, Digital Point is the largest webmaster forum with massive traffic gained. The forum has established a marketplace for people to buy and sell articles. The written articles were often made into a pack of 5 or 10 articles and posted for sales on Digital Point Marketplace at one price. There are quite a lot of buyers purchasing article pack in the forum. This is a marketplace ideal for you to sell your articles.

You don't need to be a pro-writer but you do need some writing skill to do this little business. The process is simple. You first create 5 to 10 articles on a topic, post an ad on the marketplace about it and wait for the potential buyers to contact you via private message of the forum.

Make sure you have a PayPal account to accept payment.

How to begin?
Visit http://forums.digitalpoint.com/register.php to join as a member of the forum. Then start reading the topics and threads that you're interested and post your replies. You need to reach 25 posts and at least 14 days of joining DP before you can post ad on the DP marketplace.

What articles sell often?

I noticed in the DP that the topics like Wordpress, make money online, affiliate marketing, social media marketing are selling quite well. You may start creating 5 articles in one of the topics to test sell in DP. But these are just some of the good demand topics I noticed, you might do some researches in DP to find more profitable topics that you can write for.

Certain simple rules you must keep in mind is that your article must be unique (not published anywhere before) and can only sell once - to one buyer only.

How to write the ad
It's not difficult. You can just refer the existing ads and get an idea on what you should put in. There are only ad title and ad description you need to write. Here's an example of the title"

'5 Wordpress Articles | 100% Unique | $15'

For the ad description, make sure you include the title of each articles and the length of each, the price of the article pack and mention that they were all Copyscape Pass. Tell the viewers to send 'private message' to you if they're interested.

What price to set
The price needs to be low in DP. People like to buy in DP because there were good deals they can find. For a pack of 5 articles, you are suggested to set the price at $15 or lower. You might go for a little higher the price, but if you can't get your articles sold, then cut the price down.

No. 3 - Sell Your Used Stuff

When you want to sell something online, I'm sure you think of eBay. But, you need to pay a listing fee to sell your item on eBay. The listing charge is not refundable. If your item don't sell, you still pay the fee. It costs money to make money in eBay.

However, it's different when you sell in other auction sites such as eBid and Atoncer. Both of the auction sites don't charge listing fee, meaning anything that you list for sale is free. The sites only charge you a 'final value fee' when you've sold an item.

The marketplace of eBid and Atoncer aren't big as eBay but they are quite popular on the Internet as well. Any old or used stuff in your home that you find you can sell, try listing them for sale in eBid and Atoncer. If you’ve sold something successfully, you will make profit. But if your item doesn't sell, you have nothing to lose and you can list again.

Other than free auction sites, Craiglist is another excellent online marketplace to sell your used stuff. Craiglist is a classified ad site that anyone can take advantage on. There is no cost to post ad in Craiglist except you are posting ad into the job category. The great thing about Craiglist is that it divides the ads by city or region, making it easier to find buyers in your town.

Generating sales through Craiglist is certainly possible. And you can always re-list your ad when your previous ad is getting older. But remember to always include picture when you list any item for sale in Craiglist and also in the auction sites. Adding product picture has proven to be effective for increasing responses dramatically.

Oh.. There is one more marketplace I almost forgot to mention. It's the famous Amazon. Like eBid and Atoncer, Amazon doesn't charge listing fee but if you sell an item, they will take a percentage of it.

Your used cell phone can bring you fast cash if you are in US
If you often change cell phone and keep a number of outdated phones over time, don't throw them away. Online company like Cell for Cash wants you old cell phones. You'll get money for sending (free shipping) your old cell phone to Cell for Cash.

The cash value of phones range from few dollars to over one hundred dollars, depending on your phone model, capabilities and demand.

You can right away exchange your cell phone for cash by completing three easy steps in CellforCash.com:

1) Choose your phone model in the list
2) Submit details about your phone manufacturer and model
3) Ship your phone and get cash within 45 to 60 days.

No. 2 - Blogging for Cash

Blogging is hot on the Internet now. A lot of people want to start blogging not just because they can make money with it but also they can use the blog as an ongoing self-promotion tool making them popular over time.

The most direct way to start making money blogging is by becoming a paid bloggers of a blog network. Paid blogging job opportunities seem to be growing these days. More and more were posted on the blogging job boards. The pay offers in these blogging jobs were usually in two forms which are either pay per post e.g. $10/post or pay in a monthly basis e.g. Fixed $200/month.

Here are some blogging job sites that you can search for paid blogging opportunities:

ProBlogger Job Board - A job board established by the well known blogger 'Darren Rowse'. New blogging jobs are updated regularly.

Indeed Job Search Engine - Find the latest blogging jobs listed on different websites.

Bloggerjobs.biz - A blog that updates new blogging opportunities regularly.

Besides blogging job sites, you may check out Weblogs, Inc blog network and the About content networks. Both are quality networks that have opportunities open constantly.

The downsides of blogging for other are that your earning potential is limited and there is almost no self-promotion opportunity for you if you want to build you name in the blogosphere. For this reason, you might want to start your own blog.

It's easy to start a new blog through using the Blogger platform. With just a few simple steps to take in Blogger.com, you can have your new blog up and running and start writing the topic you're passionate about. Once you've published 5 or more posts on your blog, you can start applying for Google AdSense program to have AdSense ads displaying on your blog. This is a very basis way to earn cash from blogging. There are plenty of other ways and programs that you can use for generating revenue from your blog. Take some time to learn them.

While your blog is small and you've earned your first $10. You should buy a custom domain for your blog. A custom name will make your blog looks more professional and it's easier to build creditability.

Blogging is a wide topic. There are many things to learn for sure. You got to put in a lot of time and effort in blog marketing and content creation if you want to turn your blog into a success. As a new blogger, I would suggest you take some free blog marketing courses:

With the good blogging knowledge you pick up and hard effort on blog marketing, you could be another blogger that makes a living at home.

No. 1 - Completing Offer Online

Completing offer is an easy task that anyone can do. You don't need any writing skill or any other skills and special knowledge to do it.

The process of completing offer is pretty simple. You go to the website that is looking for people to sign up for their free offer, fill out the form on the site, confirmed your email address and done; you have completed an offer that will make you money.

Every time when you have complete an offer, you just leave it and wait for the online company to approve it. Your offer will be approved as long as you have completed it. Each approved offer will earn you $0.50 to $1.00.

There are also high paid offers that can earn you $5.00 to $50.00 per offer. But you need to enter your credit card details and probably get charge for a small fee when signing up for a high paid offer.

By completing 20 to 40 offers monthly, you can earn some nice extra cash every month.

Get paid to complete opportunity is only available to US, Canada and UK residents only.

Sites that you can join to complete offers:

Treasuretrooper.com - Registration required. Currently have over one hundred thousand members. Inside Treasure Trooper you will find hundreds of offers you can complete and earn. The majority are free offers that can be completed easily. These free offers range from $0.50 to $1.00 of earning upon completion. Payout is $20 by Check or PayPal. Treasure Trooper is a real paying site. They were started few years ago.

CashCrete.com - Works very much similar with Treasure Trooper. Registration required. Have a lot of high paid offers. Payment only by check. Another real paying site.

If you enjoy signing up offers, you may do both in Treasure Trooper and Cash Crete. This certainly will earn you more.

Both sites also offer a referral program for members to earn more by referring new member in. The referral programs are opened to US and international members.

There you have it, The Top 10 Free Ways to Get Money Online. Hope the information really helps you to earn cash on the Internet. The sites that I’ve mentioned and recommended were real and they are really paying people. So, don’t worry, you wouldn’t get scammed.
