I am very good at keeping myself busy. It seems like I add a new project to my never ending list every other day and I am always working on something. I have many responsibilities now, which means I need to be as productive as possible to accomplish all the tasks I’ve set out for myself.
Making money online is a game for overachievers, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you are in a similar situation.
Because of this, I am always looking for ways to increase my productivity. I have mentioned a few of my tricks before, but there is one that I have been using for around a year now (and I’m actually using right now) that I have not mentioned. White noise.
White noise, also called white sound, is defined by the Random House Dictionary as a steady, unvarying, unobtrusive sound, as an electronically produced drone or the sound of rain, used to mask or obliterate unwanted sounds. Essentially, it’s just background noise.
How does White Noise Increase Productivity?
I have been experimenting with listening to white noise while I work on my computer at the PeerFly office and my laptop at home. I have Bose QC 15 Noise Canceling Headphones that, combined with a few different → Continue Reading
I have tweeted over the past few days about how I believe Facebook is making some changes to their algorithm to give Facebook Pages more reach and then just a few days ago they released a new News Feed preference tool that will change how users manage their feed and can help Facebook Page owners increase their research tremendously. That new preference is called See First.
See First allows users to bump any Person or Page to the top of their News Feed. These posts are literally seen first because they are the very first thing that will show on your News Feed.
Add a Facebook Page to your See First List
Facebook could definitely make this process a bit easier, but right now there are a few steps to add a Facebook Page or person to your See First list.
The first step is to get to your News Feed Preferences on Facebook. On your computer, you simply click on the drop down arrow at the top right of the Facebook menu and then select News Feed Preferences towards the bottom of the menu.
Facebook is rolling out See First in the News Feed Preferences on iOS and Android so you may not have the option → Continue Reading
Every once in awhile an online marketing course will capture my attention. I’ve been doing online marketing for over 10 years and I have seen and paid for plenty of really crappy courses. So, when one actually looks good and it’s about a topic I’m interested in, I’ll usually buy it.
My friend, Adrian, posted earlier this month on his Facebook about a course he had been developing called Tee Advantage. Adrian has been in online marketing for longer than I have been and is much more successful than I am, but I’ve spent the past 4 years selling shirts online so I was intrigued.
I messaged Adrian about his new course and he sent me a login so I could check it out. I spent a night going through his awesome videos and setup a my first campaign. A few weeks later, I’ve made nearly $2,000 with well over 100% ROI.
The course works! So, let’s take a look.
Tee Advantage Video Course
Tee Advantage has 10 modules with multiple videos within each module. I can’t go into specifics of each module, but I will outline them for you.
(Adrian is going to hate this screenshot, but it’s awesome)
The modules (as shown in the screenshot → Continue Reading
By the time you get done reading this, there should be a popup on your screen that I created using the most recent tool added to my blogging and marketing toolbox, Engagifire.
Engagifire is a very cool piece of software that allows you to easily create popups or slide-ins which you can add to your blog or website to capture your visitors attention and then entice them to perform an action you want them to perform.
You should have seen the example popup on this article, but I’m going to reference another Engagifire popup I created to explain why this is such an awesome tool.
I created an Engagifire popup and added it to my It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia fan site (the same one I got a million pageviews on a few months ago).
Creating an awesome looking popup like the one above is really easy with Engagifire. They have an amazing builder tool that allows you to drag and drop components into your popup. They also have a library of templates to help you get started and a few built in specifically for Teespring campaigns, which is pretty cool.
