"Stream Store" Examples

Update October 28th, 2016: I finally got a partial refund but it wasn’t easy.

Since Ariel Sanders (Stream Store developer) did not honour my refund request on October 6th, I was forced to open a PayPal dispute to recover my funds. Within minutes of me opening it, Sanders had responded (within the PayPal dispute) saying I was seeking a refund after the 30-day money-back period had expired. If only he’d dealt with support issues as quickly.

Indeed, I did open the dispute 3 days after the refund period had expired (but my original refund request had been on Oct. 6th). I asked for a refund for the base product and the three

Why Instant Articles is a game changer

The Facebook Feature You’ve Never Heard Of

Have you heard of Facebook’s ‘Instant Articles’?

No?

Neither had I, until I came across a article talking about how Hootsuite (a social media management service) had been using a new update in Facebook to produce results like these:

  • a 37% increase in reach
  • a 22% increase in shares
  • an 83% increase in Likes
  • a 57% increase in link clicks

Those figures got me interested and after doing a bit more research I found Facebook is using the Instant Articles feature to get the attention of as many businesses as possible because they want traffic to stay on Facebook, naturally.

What this means for you …

When a new product comes on the market, hundreds and maybe thousands of affiliate marketers rush to promote the offer.

In the internet marketing space, people are more aware of marketing strategies and shop around for the one (or many) things that distinguish one affiliate offer from another.

I’m talking about bonuses. Just sending a potential customer to your affiliate link isn’t enough. It may be enough for products outside of the internet marketing world, but if you’re promoting products or services to other internet marketers, you need to up your game and provide one or more bonuses to incentivize your potential customers.

The ArbiCash System

In case you don’t know what arbitrage is, it’s buying something for one price and selling it for a higher price (hopefully) and pocketing the difference.

It’s an ancient way of doing business and its use continues today because it can be very profitable.

It’s a model I used over a decade ago when I used to buy space program memorabilia on auction sites and then sell it at a profit either on eBay or locally through classified ads.

It’s a model that can also work well for webmasters.

Buy cheap traffic from one source, have that traffic directed to a webpage and then earn from clicks on ads and affiliate links …

I’ve been thinking about all the affiliate and internet marketing courses I’ve bought and learned from over the years. And how many just languish on my digital shelves now and how many I actually used and still use.

Many had short lifetimes because they exploited a loophole or trick to achieve their aim and, once that was plugged, whatever the course taught didn’t work any more.

Then there’s the simple reality that the internet is an incredibly dynamic entity.

Google changes the rules on a what – daily, weekly, monthly basis? We get to hear about the big changes like Panda and Penguin algorithm updates but the knock-on effect of these changes …

Success Leaves Clues.

I thought that was a fitting opening line for this post. Because it’s true. In the last year I watched an internet marketer break onto the scene and crush out multiple 7-figures in revenue like it was nothing.

Maybe you’ve heard of this guy? His name is Chris Record.

Who Is Chris Record?

What makes Chris different is how detailed he is in his training. Just one webinar with Chris Record is like a full 10X training experience! I’m member of his Inner Circle Club where he runs a webinar each Monday for members. His last webinar ran for 5 hours! And it was packed full of solid, useful …

100K Factory

I mentioned/advertised the 100K Factory on this blog a couple of weeks ago. It was an expensive program, running a $2,497 for a one-time payment or 3 monthly payments of $997 each ($2,991 total). That high ticket price would have out it out of the range of many. Others may have thought that no course is worth that kind of money.

I, probably like many other small business owners and affiliate marketers, have become increasingly frustrated with Google’s ever-shifting goal-posts, algorithm tweaks and the sheer amount of time and effort needed to implement effective SEO to get, and keep, sites ranked in their search engine.

There has to be an easier way. …

100K Factory

As someone who builds sites for both myself and clients, I have a love/hate relationship with Google. Most webmasters are in the same position.

Google can send our sites lots of free traffic if we can get our sites onto page 1 of Google for our keywords. On the other hand, Google make frequent changes to their search engine algorithm which frequently makes a mess of how sites rank. Too many times after one of these updates, quality sites, sites belonging to small businesses, etc. end up way down the search results. It’s put people out of business in the past.

Relying on Google for traffic is just not good business …
