Proven Amazon Course Logo

A price rise for Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course (my #1 recommended course for selling on Amazon) was announced a little over a week ago.

The price was set to increase yesterday, but in his recent podcasts Jim said, “buy PAC before the end of July when the price will increase.” So, to be consistent with that, the price rise is being deferred until next week.

The price WILL go up on Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017.

In addition to the base Amazon course, these additional courses (which are sold separately) have already been added into the Proven Amazon Course’s membership area (at no additional cost to members):

Bitcoins

iCoinPro is a program I joined a few weeks ago. It provides training about Bitcoin – what it’s all about, how it works and how to use it.

The Core Training concentrates on Bitcoin itself while the advanced training looks at Ethereum and why it’s different to Bitcoin. The training also looks at other popular cryptocurrencies and various ways you can make money from them. This includes mining, lending to others, staking and investing in cryptocurrencies.

There’s a live Google Hangout every week for members to keep up with what’s happening in the crypto world. Additional training is often provided during these live calls too. A recording of the latest call is …

Broken Links

I just spent the last 4 days cleaning up links on this site. Nothing more. Just links.

I periodically use the free Broken Link Checker WordPress plugin to alert me of links that have become broken on the site.

This time, the plugin reported almost 200 broken links!

Why Do Links Break?

Links break because the destination URL has gone offline or is unreachable for some reason. These are the typical causes:

  • A product is no longer being sold by a merchant and it’s page has been removed – this can mean a whole site disappearing if the site sells only one product. A typical example is a digital product. The product

Green Screen Example

I haven’t had a chance to check this new video product out but if you’re into making videos, especially ones where you or some other person appears on screen, this might be of interest.

Green Screen Academy

This is a 3-in-1 suite of green-screen products. If you don’t know what green-screen is (where have you been?), it’s a solid green backdrop that you film yourself or your presenters in front of.

Then, using the magic of CGI (Computer Generated Imagery), that green backdrop gets replaced by some far more interesting background, so you can appear to be on a tropical island, in a high-tech studio or wherever you fancy.

You get everything …

A Little Bit About Bitcoin

Bitcoin has been in the news lately as you might have noticed, even on mainstream news channels. It’s known for being an extremely volatile currency but, despite that, many people have become millionaires over the last 5 years simply by buying and holding Bitcoin.

One very early, notable Bitcoin transaction was when  two pizzas were bought from and delivered by Papa John’s for 10,000 BTC. Today, that amount of Bitcoin would be worth $22,400,000! Let that sink in.

Unlike today’s fiat (paper) money which can be printed when governments need more cash (devaluing the currency already in existence), there will only ever be 21,000,000 Bitcoins in …

eCommerce

The 100K Factory Revolution Course is now in week 10. I, however, am stuck at week 5’s training…

After doing my research, I identified a niche I thought would be good and built and stocked a Shopify store with products to sell. That’s the relatively easy part.

The hard part, as it is for every website on the planet, is driving traffic to that site.

Bypassing Google

Google doesn’t factor into that equation here. Besides, I’m fed up with relying on them to rank my sites and pages. The traffic method suggested by this course is to use Facebook ads. From what I can see, every course that’s come and gone that …

Valet Builds Your Twitter Followers

Peerfly is one of the most popular CPA networks and one of the easiest to join. CPA, in case you don’t know, means Cost Per Action.

Most affiliate marketing is built on this model whether you’re promoting products from Clickbank, Commission Junction or any other affiliate network. You get paid when someone completes an action. In the case of affiliate marketing, that action occurs when someone buys a product through your affiliate link.

In CPA networks, more services than products tend to be available for promotion – mobile games, insurance quotes, dating services, etc. Promotion of these programs can be more restrictive too. You may only be able to promote some …

eCommerce

As you may have read in one of my posts from late in December, I made the decision to get into the particular type of eCommerce that is “selling on Amazon”. I’d been learning the business through Jim Cockrum’s excellent Proven Amazon Course.

The model I was particularly interested in was in selling used books. Profits of up to 700% are not unheard of in this niche. However, as I don’t live in the USA, some logistical issues became apparent.

In order to sell items through Amazon FBA (where Amazon ships product to customers from their own warehouses), you have to send stock to those Amazon warehouses. If you’re …
