What is up. ladies and gents and welcome back to the good old tech crack house today I’m actually going to be covering a feature or features of the stash invest app. So if you’re interested feel free to like share and subscribe and stick around for more folks and I’m going to go ahead and transfer it over to the computer what is um please and just welcome back to the google Tech crack house here as I. You know. just actually stated in the intro basically today I’m going to be talking about something that is. But kind of on my mind and that is. You know. pretty much stash invest and. You know. it’s been it’s been six weeks. Now since I’ve been invested in stash invest so it’s been a month and a half which is honestly a little like the time. Now my issue with stash invest is this the stock market has been not incredible over the past one and a half months. But it hasn’t been all that horrendous my stash invest portfolio which is a good. You know. conglomeration here of many different securities has actually just pretty much been consistently dropping. Now and that’s not including the money that I have to pay every month to actually keep using the app the thing is I don’t blame the app necessarily for any drops that might occur also i’m going to take a quick drink real quick. Okay, okay. Now that i got that out of the way i don’t blame the stash about that. Because honestly the app doesn’t really have much to do with the loss of money you can see that actually only five of these holdings 1 through 5 here have actually been profitable and this one has only been profitable by one cent. So, you know. quite frankly all of them the bottom 15 have lost money so I’m actually pretty amazed at this portfolio isn’t doing worse than it. You know. is currently. Now my allocation might have something to do with this drop. Now I say that. Because my Robbins our portfolio over the past month and a half has actually done pretty well. So I really have nothing to complain about their I just think that this allocation was just not not great and. You know. my acorns account is up thirteen dollars which is once again not fantastic. But this is down almost ten dollars which is really not good to see so the thing is I don’t blame the app I might consider doing some sort of reallocation. But after six weeks as. It really made me money no not necessarily it’s lost money and with the money that I’ve paid. You know. considering that i probably paid the fees to be using the app twice. Now it’s not that great that’s. You know. two dollars more of a loss so so far, the the net gain is negative twelve dollars or so which is as I said. You know. not too great. But I’m definitely keeping my eye on the app and i’m using the lots of other apps too so very exciting a very exciting time and i think that’s going to do it for this article folks i just wanted to get in here and talk about this app just really nice and quick. Because honestly it’s after six weeks is not doing as well as i thought it would be. But we could see it turn around once again i’m going to stick with it and kind of hold it in there and i’ll see where everything goes from here so. Yeah, fingers crossed I guess is what I’m going for. But anyway folks i hope that you all have a fantastic fantastic day and if you like the article feel free to leave a like share and subscribe and audios.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the good old tech crack house theory I hope you’re all having a fantastic fantastic day and today I’m actually just going to go ahead and kind of do what I do with acorns and take a similar look at my stash invest portfolio which actually started with two thousand dollars. So you can see it’s dipped just a little bit. But. You know. I don’t have too many complaints about that. Because this portfolio is definitely more moderate than my acorns portfolio so it’s bound to have more difficulty it’s going to dip more and I am totally. Okay, with that. Because honestly it’s something that’s got to happen it’s an indicator that the market is working as it should honestly or as it has historically worked in the past so. Yeah, I’m not I’m not too upset about this. You know. as you can see after three weeks the portfolio is actually down to nine thousand nine hundred and five dollars and forty-five cents. So it has lost money and that’s perfectly. All right, as I said. You know. dips are expected and. I actually hear the 20 holdings I have they aren’t super important to this article so I’m just going to go ahead and talk about this for a little bit and my expectations in the future and how I think things will go from here so actually in my acorns article I examined how the S&P 500 index lined up with the account value and I’m actually going to do this for this one too however it’s a little bit harder to say. Because this actually doesn’t have any sort of mountain plot or anything or I don’t believe that it does anyway pretty sure it doesn’t so we’re not going to worry about that. But I program i’m going to go ahead and kind of draw some conjecture about the the results here based on the S&P 500 outcome however i’m going to go ahead and leave this up for a little bit longer just. Because it gets really hard to see when i minimize so. Yeah, so as you can see the account has actually lost so far, point six two percent. Now I do have to mention that I did some experimenting before and some of that could be some of that loss could be residual from the last experiment however. I would say most of it as actually. Because of this portfolio so so far, it’s not really doing fantastically and. You know. three weeks is not a long time to invest in three weeks honestly your portfolio could end up the complete opposite of what you started with. Because three weeks is just not it’s not added would time do you really see how portfolio is developing. So this is really more of just kind of like an update just kind of tell you what’s up with the account and I’m really expect it to be doing a whole lot right. Now. You know. this five-dollar loss or still is really honestly pretty acceptable. I mean I definitely I don’t think that’s anything to complain about. I think that honestly the account I believe will recoup from this and I would expect it to. You know. exceed one thousand dollars at least if not go higher so we’re definitely going to see what happens in the future. But for the time being I will go ahead and actually look at the S&P 500 right here I said that really fast so as you hover over the past month and actually as you can see. Now what did. I actually invest with this. Okay, I believe that I invested yet three weeks ago probably made at februari i’m going to guess submit februari. So you can see actually actually know probably. Yeah, probably late februari right around here let’s keep that up you can actually tell that if you invested around this point you would have actually lost money in the S&P 500 index and that is exactly what is reflected in this portfolio ok. Now it’s not a huge loss. So you can see that i did actually invest i believe probably around here so. Because it’s probably creeping up on 4 weeks. Now and. You know. around this time from there to here i suppose is not all that creative a loss it’s decent. But it’s nothing drastic. You know. if I manage to invest right here and I. You know. lost out here then I I would be. You know. even farther into the hole I suppose. So I don’t really consider this to be a bad outcome I consider this to be pretty average so far. You know. only three weeks I really can’t ask for all that much so especially with the moderate nature of the portfolio. Because it’s definitely moderate there’s no mistaking that. So. I mean I have 20 different selections here each of them vary in terms of stability so it’s just it’s what. I expected this is pretty much what I had the monitor mix although I’ve kind of done it up myself we’re not really worried about these interest rates rising could affect this to some degree I’m sure of course. Because it is still within the regular stock market. So I would not be surprised at all. But. You know. we’re going to see what happen so anyway I think that’s going to do it for this article ladies and gents so let me know what else you want to hear about what you want to see and keep it right here at the google Tech crack else and have a good one folks and audios.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the Google tech crack house today I have a bit of insight on the stache invest app that I think you’re going to like think you’re going to appreciate. So I hope that you enjoy it get something out of it if you do feel free to like share subscribe check out the articles that we’re currently the giveaways that we’re currently doing there on various articles scattered throughout the channel I my turn to link some of them I sometimes forget. So I apologize if I do. But basically. Yeah, so stash invest ok stash invest has been interesting for me over the past short wild I’ve been using it I’ve been ok with it I’ve been doing ok I ended up making like 15 bucks after a few months which actually isn’t all that bad I don’t think. But at the same time it’s not all that great and I had a thousand dollars invested to make 15 bucks on a somewhat moderate mix after that period of time that’s not that good ok so basically I was thinking about it and I got to thinking. You know. stache invest not all of stache invests ETFs that it offers are created equal and this is I think pretty much stat stache permit very much stache invest greatest flaw. Now you might not agree with me. But stache invest has a huge variety of ETFs and that’s good and bad. Because it’s basically good. Because it gives you a ton of options lots of different things to sort through look at all that consider it helps you actually learn to invest a little which i think is good it’s bad. Because not nearly. You know. the ETF’s all performed differently and you don’t want to need to have to perform sadly and it’s easy to pick one that actually does perform quite poorly so what I found it was a handful of them. I would say six seven of them were carrying the rest on that actually had invested in I invested in 20 stocks or ETFs in total with stash invest and like seven of them were carrying most of the other stocks which is not what you want to see at all basically those seven were some of them. I would say three were actually. You know. scoffing up a good return scoffing sounds bad coughing up a good return anyway the remaining seven we’re just kind of scraping by and actually like 13 of them or so we’re losing money and really not doing well at all. Now the market hasn’t been all that fantastic lately it’s been somewhat shaky overall which I’m not super pumped about. But at the same time. You know. we don’t have any choice really. But to endure the market conditions that were given basically what I’ve found is you need to search through stash invest to really find any sort of investment that’s actually worth your salt. You know. worth its salt that can prove itself and actually. You know. appears to be a good investment so what you want to look for is you want to. You know. search through all of the ETS pretty much on stash invest all of them that you can get your hands on you can see I have young money pulled up here basically we have current value number of shares you invest a total return percent of stash average price all that good stuff so what you want to what you want to go to you’re here on this tab underneath or on the information panel for any sort of ETF you can go to overview click on that it gives you a risk level which is extremely important and this can really help you tailor your portfolio to whatever you want risk level this one is somewhat. You know. low risk it says conservative on the right that’s exactly what we want to see PayPal Holdings pretty much it makes a big part of it. So you can see all the holdings that are actually included here which is actually very important to told you dividend yield which is nice expense ratio which I do actually think that Ash invest charges you for expenses. So this is important too you got to find those expense ratios you got to find which ones cost more to invest in which ones cost less that is highly important. Okay, that’s very important if you want to actually be making money go for low expense ratios this one’s actually pretty high the tickers mi Ln and. I actually talked about this ticker in a article of stupid ETFs that I thought were pretty dumb so honestly. You know. stash invest I think picks kind of ETFs that seem to. You know. fit a certain standard fit a certain time of graphic and then they go for it and they name it something and then bang there you go there’s your ETF on stash so not necessarily good planning. But the same time not necessarily too bad performance is huge check the performance. Okay, your today return is good to look at. Okay, yours today change on this one with twelve point three six percent of positive growth that’s very important historical performance last 12 months seventeen point five two percent this one is somewhat young since inception. Yeah, it’s less than no it’s slightly over a year old anyway you can see the inception date there and then you can look at who owns it who owns it is really kind of pointless I think. You know. 4% of the community I don’t care about whoever else owns the stock for me personally I just I’m not interested in that so let’s go to water the world here and click on this one just to kind of see how this one varies this one is moderate risk if we look at performance here the year to do change is still growth 9.1 6%. So this one would still be decent if we look at let’s see if we can find an expense ratio expense ratio is still is 0.6 1% here with the dividend yield two point six six percent. So if the dividend yield is adequate you can pretty much count that as. You know. covering your expenses if it’s not it’s not going to cover anything and that basically. You know. watch out for these expense ratios and all that good stuff so one look through all the ETFs and make sure that they actually perform well. Okay, to look at the expense ratios. Because if the expense ratio is high it’s going to be detrimental to your profit it’s not going to be good and three look at the ticker look and see if the ticker something you can buy in Robinhood a different BER courage and if you can I might suggest going for that. Because then you would save money. Because you can actually just buy it independently you want to have to buy it fractionally necessarily which is the future of stash invest that can kind of make it nice if you wanna buy a fractional share if you don’t have enough money for the full share makes total sense to me. But at the same time. You know. if you can buy it outside of stash invest look into that too so that’s just some insight that I want to share with you folks on using stash invest I hope that all of you learned something if you do if you did programming feel free to leave a like share subscribe check out the giveaways has already said I hope all you have a fantastic fantastic day and adios you you.

Now I suspect you’re kind of right. But don’t worry about any of our stuff anymore. Because I’ve made it easy for you with these highly effective shortcuts. So this you guys answer a few questions about your customers so think about the things that irritate them think about the things that they find important what issues up at the top of their list think about their passions what kind of products of services do they see as good value.

Now in the past you probably already know that spoken about the importance of making your customers feel validated and here we’re expanding on what you’ve already learned from me with a shortcut you can easily build trust with your audience so just repeat back those thoughts and feelings about whatever topic you’re talking about remind them of what they believe tell them what they think and feel about things remind them of what irritates them a good way to do this could be in the headline you’re right for example if it checks a few boxes it will have a greater impact on your readers. Now you already know that your headline needs to make promise. But delivering it in an emotional way can help your reader to connect to it. Now another thing to consider for your headline is to make it sincere and hold value it should also provide reassurance and validation when you have all these things working together your headline will shine. Now you’ll be able to come up with a better example than me. But right. Now shooting from the hip right off the top of my head maybe a headline that says something like you’ve been lied to this oh wait dry dropped 30 pounds in two months for the perfect wedding dress without the crazy diet or expensive gym membership.

ladies and gentlemen welcome back to the channel so in this article I’ll actually be comparing m1 financed with Robin Hood I figured it was about time that did this. Because m1 finance is. Now totally free to use which before you could kind of say hey maybe Robin Hood doesn’t have as many features. But it’s free and then people will kind of be like. Yeah, you’re right it is free and you can’t argue with free right. But. Now that both of them are free to use which one is actually better. Okay, and that’s that’s definitely something that needs to be considered you can use both. But which one is really more worth your time and worth investing your money with so in this article I’m going to cover that based on essentially four categories this article is going to be kind of casual just be kind of spitballing and giving my opinions on these apps I just drop the paper that I was using to talk off of so the the areas that. I actually covered in this article will be ease of use a fund availability and that really is covering speed in that category features and customer service. Now you could say which one performs better which one will help you make more money and really that all comes down to your personal use obviously some people are going to be better at using these apps than others there there’s a bit more of a learning curve with Robin Hood than. I would say there is with m-1 finance. But really it comes down to personal experience there’s no guarantee of course that one of these will make more money for you than the other and that kind of goes without saying. But anyway right anyway let’s go ahead and get right into it starting out with ease of use so essentially with both of these apps there are some pretty big differences in terms of ease of use. So if you’re unfamiliar with Robin Hood when you log in this is what you see they have a couple of stocks added to your watch list here and then right here you have positions that you’re actually purchased into or that you’re holding. So if you scroll up here they have cards you can scroll through them to kind of look at your history and then you can go up here right up here to the search icon to actually search for a stock so search for Apple AAPL you can click this little button and add it to your watch list okay. Now Apple has been added you can look at it you can track it you can see what’s going on with it and that’s pretty nice that’s pretty easy to do. Okay, that’s definitely pretty easy ease of access and that’s not all that complicated however there’s nothing that really holds your hand through the process. Okay, there aren’t really any major research tools it’s pretty hands-off and that’s nice. Because it does let you explore a different stocks. But and. Now my computer will probably start making noise. Because I have notifications disabled over here. But not not over here on this instance of this emulator. But anyway pardon my computer for that uh-huh so ease of use really. You know. Robin Hood is simple okay. But it doesn’t offer a whole lot in terms of finding stocks you have to do a lot of research outside of the app and I think that’s perfectly fine. But some people might not be quite as comfortable with that for EM one finance if you go over here and you go over to the discover tab you can actually sort through pies that are pre created by experts. So if you want to go kind of hands-off you could just select one of these pretty simple then you just pick one and you can have a nice little setup that essentially would work for you if you don’t want to put a whole lot of effort into finding specific funds then they have a stock screener which is really nice a fun screener which is also very nice and a watchlist. Okay, which function it functions us somewhat similarly to Robin Hood’s watchlist it’s not quite as easily accessed I guess. I mean Robin Hood’s is right down here if you scroll down that’s pretty easy you don’t get much easier than that em ones is kind of hidden I suppose. So if you’re looking at that I. You know. it’s it’s not quite as easy to access. So I guess I might dock m1 a couple of points for that. But if you want to actually find. You know. different ETFs and things to add or stocks you can go up here you can make a new PI very simple and then you can go and just search never you can filter things you can search by various criteria and I do have to say that the search function is much more fleshed out on the m1 finance website if you’re using it with their website it’s much much easier to use. But here’s Apple and m1 and we can add that and if you go over to the watchlist it’s right there you can go in you can look at it if we compare these side-by-side and just see what we can see immediately here you notice a price chart if you go over here you can see that it’s it’s one year three year etc if you go over to profile kind of gives you some information about them which actually Robinhood kind of has that. But if you go down here it says. Okay, Apple Inc xrx R gives you a bit of a blurb here it gives you the name of the CEO the number of employees and that’s kind of cool you can visit their website directly from m1 also if you go up here this is a performance chart I’m not really gonna look at that right now. Because it kind of takes a while. But I like that ok gives you a bit more background and that is really cool to me that the p/e ratio of the dividend market cap that is obviously all available on Robinhood here the information is slightly discrepant i’m not sure which one is more up-to-date technically. But they’re around the same figures in terms of p/e ratio and those numbers over here you have news here you have news for apple also it’s a bit more fleshed out on m1. But it isn’t necessarily better so really I kinda have to give ease-of-use to m1 and I kind of hate to say that. Because I do like Robin Hood a lot. But m1 really brings a lot of information to the table and if you’re a new investor and you want to find stocks and ETFs to invest in and you want more background info you want to know who the CEO is you want to know how many employees they have stuff like that you can look at that without leaving the m1 finance app however I do have to say that in terms of the price chart it’s a little bit less accessible. So it kind of it kind of evens out I guess. But I think em on has a slight edge just. Because they do have a bit more. So, you know. not the Rapids Bennet. But slight edge to m1 there. Okay, so next let’s move on to fund availability and how long it takes to actually get funds in your account. Now I’ve been using m1 and Robin Hood for quite a while let me go back to my portfolio here and I have to say that m1 is a little bit faster for transferring funds if you don’t have an instant account on Robin Hood if you have an instant account on Robin Hood Robin Hood is faster. Because you can’t have up to a thousand dollars transferred instantly if you have gold you can have up to two thousand dollars transferred instantly however on m1 the transfers usually come in in one to two days so essentially if you don’t have instant or you don’t have gold m1 will typically be faster for you that’s definitely nice. Okay, that is definitely nice another thing is when you auto invest funds with m1 they will actually go ahead and purchase stocks automatically for you on a weekly basis monthly basis even a daily basis you can do Auto transfers into Robin Hood. But as far as I know you can’t necessarily have auto buys you can kind of. Because you can just set a limit order once you have your money coming in and. You know. have it set up where you have money coming to the account and then you buy a stock pretty much immediately as soon as that money comes in it’s just not quite as convenient it’s definitely more hands-on that does force you to watch prices a bit more so from an actual investment standpoint if you’re really scrutinizing and you really have to be hands-on I would give a slight edge to Robin Hood if you’re ok with. You know. not having gold or instant account and you like your money to come in quickly and you’re. Okay, with Auto investments into specific stocks or ETFs that you want I would give the edge to m1 so we’re really like I. You know. like I said it depends on what your preferences are and on what you want and that’s an extremely big deal. Okay, that makes a huge huge difference. Now also I should mention I am going to be putting more money into both these profiles soon I would like to have at least thirty thousand Robin Hood. I actually took some money out to rebalance the portfolio and. I actually made a article detailing that a couple of nights ago or last night maybe. So if you’re interested in that definitely check that out. Because I would I think be be kind of a good insight into Robin Hood and how it kind of works and how I have to do research outside of the app more than I do research inside of the app everyone also deserves more money in the app and really I do think m1 is very useful so anyway ease of use I would give that to m1. Okay, fund availability I would give that to Robin Hood or m1 depending on what type of account you have they’re pretty evenly cooled. Okay, in terms of features and. I mean investing features overall this is another tough one. Because these apps are so totally different I will say right off the bat that m1 allows you to buy partial shares of ETFs which is absolutely amazing ETFs and stocks you can buy partial shares with m1. So if you want to buy a share of Berkshire Hathaway. But you don’t have enough money using m1 you can go ahead and buy into it it’s really simple you just buy however much you want. I think there’s a five dollar limit. So you have to buy at least $5 of a stock or something like that and then you can go through with it and you can buy a partial share of whatever. You know. if you have if you want to buy Amazon. But you only have 50 bucks to spend you can buy 50 bucks of Amazon and that is really really a great advantage. Okay, Robin Hood has several buying and selling options say for example we go to VW o if you go to buy here you can see that they have market buys limit by stop-loss and stop limit options not options I should say he just stopped limit accessibility it’s not as beneficial I suppose. Because you do have to buy four shares you can’t just buy partial shares which I really like I do really like on m1 fine it’s that you can actually go ahead and order my trans say your you can make pies out of multiple stocks and ETFs also. So you essentially just pick the funds you want you add the all to a pie and then you essentially break them down into however much you want allocated per each stock or ETF. Okay, you can see here this is a three percent allocation I have roughly I believe thirty holdings in this portfolio that I set up it’s a high dividend portfolio and I was able to put three percent of each ETF into this portfolio. So I was able to kind of really diversify with that spread the stocks out a bit. So I could collect income essentially frequently without being too overexposed on robhinhood you have some great features also okay. But they really come into play when you’re using like I said the instant or the gold accounts. Now instant you can access anytime you don’t have to pay into that it’s really nice goal what you have to pay for okay. But with gold you get things like after-hours trading. So if there’s an earnings call that you’re really interested in and it’s after hours on m1 finance you couldn’t do anything at that point. Okay, you’re buying into a stock you’re holding it you’re not actively trading it as much on Robinhood you can go in and you can kind of mess around with that earnings earnings call and you can use it to your advantage say for example I in the past AMD had an earnings earnings call that kind of went south and if you had Robin Hood gold you could get in there and trade and sell out. You know. when the price was extremely high and then you would be pretty much. You know. good to go when the price lowered so really once again. You know. partial share buying makes this a lot more accessible to many more people Robin Hood has more hands-on trading features. So. It really depends what you want to go with I would honestly give this one to neither. Okay, to neither. Because in terms of features they’re very different m1 is easier to use Robin Hood lets you do more it lets you do more hands-on stuff I shouldn’t say do more in general. But it lets you be a bit more hands-on and it lets you be an active investor so really neither neither one good see a manager so let’s move on to the the final category and I would be more than happy to cover. You know. different topics between these two apps and compare different things. Because this isn’t really an end-all be-all comparison I want everyone to know that if you do have other suggestions for things you want me to cover absolutely let me know. Because there are other criteria and I’m sure I’m missing some and leaving some out. Because I can’t cover everything unfortunately in this article. But I can cover more things in the future more aspects in the future so anyway final aspect is customer service which app has the better customer service and really I have to give this one to m1 when I’ve contacted them one for customer service help they have really been helpful and they’ve always communicated with me quickly they’ve always actually helped me out and they’ve helped me understand what a situation might be they’ve provided options for me. I actually asked them while ago I said hey I want to have all these portfolios set up like 20 portfolios how can I do that how can I make different pies how can I dive ursa fie more and they said just make new accounts just make new investment accounts and they will all show up under your name and you’ll be good to go and I said that’s fantastic. Okay, that’s great Robin Hood has had instances where. You know. stocks have disappeared. Because of stock splits and other cash out events I have had transfers that are latent and I have contacted them and they’ve been fine with it they have helped okay. But they aren’t as quick to respond as m1 and my personal experience and their customer service is still good. Okay, they will help you out and they have definitely helped me out in the past however like I said I’ve still got to give the advantage here to have one. Because they’re extremely helpful and I really appreciate that. Okay, especially when I’m researching stuff for articles I want to know a definitive. You know. I want to know something definitively and m1 has really provided that for me. Now that Robin Hood hasn’t. But I like m1 finances Support Group a little bit more so anyway when we look at all of these categories in this article is really long of ease-of-use fund availability features and customer service. I would say that m1 comes forward and ease-of-use and customer service is it necessarily better in other areas not necessarily and. It really depends on what sort of investor you are. You know. if you want to be more hands-on maybe Robin Hood would be a better fit if you want to be more passive and you want more exposure through partial shares etc. I would say on what finance would be a better fit. It really depends on which one benefits you more so like I said if you’re Moore if you’re Moore hands off literally and what is better and if you’re more hands-on Robin Hood is better. So I really like seeing these companies compete I really think it’s awesome that m1 has eliminated their fees I think that’s a great step in the right direction so good Anya and one I guess and thank you all for watching I really want to thank everyone out there who watches we’re at like 42,000 subscribers which is really incredible and I want to thank all of you for that all of the patrons also you’re all fantastic thank you for sticking with me and for listening to my opinion hope this article helped you if it did leave a thumbs up and thank you all this channel is powered by viewers like you.

What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the good old tech crack house here. Now the article today actually revolves around the Robin Hood app so feel free to enjoy the article like share and subscribe and stick around for more and without further ado I’m going to go ahead and transfer over to the computer What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the good old tech crack house here actually just covered this portfolio so I’m gonna back out of it. Now um anyway today I just want to and the icons I have that’s insane I’ve been doing a lot of stuff on Robin Hood anyway basically today I wanted to talk about Robin Hood versus m-1 finance alright and just cover some basic things about both the apps and which one I think is worth honestly using depending on the situation that you’re in. Now both apps. Okay, I’ve been with Robin Hood for a very long time I’m not gonna lie I like them a lot I’m kinda partial to them. But I try not to be biased. Okay, that’s the thing I like I’m gonna finance a lot too. I actually just started using them I don’t think they’re bad at all I think they’re a very reputable company and honestly I like their setup their layout is good the design with the app everything is very nice it’s easy to use etc etc it’s it’s a very nice app overall so the thing is here. Okay, do I like Robin Hood better or do I like and won’t finance personally personally I kind of and this is gonna sound real sacrilegious I kind of like m-1 finance a little bit better as of right. Now then Robin Hood. Because the thing I like about em one finance which actually I think really shines through to me is the ability to use the em1 finance app to actually make portfolios make portfolios and quite frankly those portfolios are quite nice you just change the allocation that you want you put your money in and you choose what you want to buy you choose how you want your money to be distributed. Now you can do that same thing with Robin Hood alright you can buy whatever stocks you want it’s very simple very easy you just have to be willing to allocate them manually you have to be willing to count shares count prices etc and. You know. divvy up your own percentages and that’s totally fine too. I actually like doing that I find it kind of therapeutic honestly I really do not mind it so the thing is in terms of. You know. layout design they’re pretty comparable in terms of features I do like em one finances ability to actually allow you to build portfolios. Now one thing that I like about Robin Hood more than I’m one finance. All right, is basically m-1 finance does charge a fee they charge at 0.35% feet which may not sound like much and it’s really it’s really not they it can kind of stack up if you have a lot of money in the account that’s a point three five percent charged each month that’s point three five percent not 35 percent not three point five percent point three five percent it’s roughly a third of one percentage point so it’s a very very low. Now if you’re thinking about that in similar terms Robin Hood would actually have certain ETFs that charge you dearly for your holdings however they’re usually point zero three percent so like a very very little money on a thirtieth of one percentage point or so would actually be that value as opposed to a third the thing is they’re not very expensive those ETFs. You know. they they manage your money too. But it’s a little bit different than it is with them on Finance and one finance mik portfolio put your money in very simple very easy Robin Hood you don’t pay anything at all. But it’s a little bit more hands-on. So. It really depends on what you want what you like if you’re new to investing I might recommend M one finance. Because you have a ton of flexibility in terms of buying actual shares of companies etc you can find anything you want really and you just plop your money in and allocate it how you want so setting up a good portfolio. You know. that’s not exactly the easiest thing to do and one Finance does have some decent pre-built portfolios. But you’re going to do some research still to basically get a good portfolio so it’s kind of like Robin Hood. But it’s just a little bit easier to use I suppose so that’s basically what I think of Robin Hood versus Emmel to find it so far, I’m gonna make more articles like this so let me know if you enjoyed let me know what else you think and – have a good one folks and adios.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the Google tech crack elf today hope you’re all having a fantastic fantastic day first of all I just want to take a second to think all of my patreon supporters you’re all fantastic thank you so much for donating for viewing all that good stuff you are highly valued in the channel community I guess and it’s very nice to see and. Yeah, so basically what I’m going to be talking about today is Robin Hood versus other investing apps and why I like Robin Hood better than any of the other ones why pretty much think it’s a better app why it’s a better deal and why honestly you should use Robin Hood even if you’re using another brokerage account. Now I’m talking fidelity I’m talking American Century Investments I’ve used a couple of those and honestly I believe those are those are a couple of the major ones I’ve used fidelity American Century basically I like Robin Hood better than those and those. You know. they cost money they have minimum purchase requirements if you want to buy say for example. You know. a certain mutual fund you got to buy like five thousand dollars worth of that mutual fund or twenty five hundred just a decent amount of money and honestly. You know. sometimes it just becomes too expensive especially if you really want to diversify of course mutual funds the point is they’re diversified on the other hand they’re do. You know. you can’t learn much with them. Because you don’t really have choose your own investments basically what I’m getting at is flexibility I think is huge in the current age of investing especially with younger people alright younger people myself included I’m fairly young. Okay, we like to choose our investments and to learn about what we’re doing. I get so many questions on my channel. You know. like what stocks are good what technology stocks are good all this stuff like what do you recommend and I think that’s really cool. Because. You know. it’s people like to learn about what they’re doing they like to gain experience and. You know. when you use mutual funds and all that good stuff. You know. mutual funds are great. Because they’re managed by professional same thing with ETFs or obtained expense ratio managed by professionals. But at the same time it’s not super exciting if you don’t learn a ton from using them you can’t learn a bit okay. Because you can obviously look up investments and. You know. just kind of like figure out what you’re doing look at everything it’s all good and dandy right. But at the same time it’s just not as interesting as actually. You know. buying all of your own stocks managing them switching them around doing all that good stuff so that’s a big reason why I think Robin Hood is absolutely fantastic. Because it doesn’t hold your hand whatsoever you. You know. you basically make an account and I’m actually working on a full Robin Hood tutorial starting from the second that you download the app which I think will be useful. Because I’ve gotten some questions about that too. You know. how to use the app how you trade all that good stuff. So I will be covering that. But basically Robin Hood has a fantastic advantage. Because it doesn’t help you at all. Okay, it just you make your account you put your money in you buy your stocks you sell your stocks it Rose you out there basically to the wolves and the wolves the wolves I said that weird anyway. You know. you’ve got to learn and you got to learn what you’re doing it’s really good for younger investors I think. Because honestly it’s not very handy and at the same time. Because Robin Hood has no fees whatsoever you can actually just put money in you can buy whatever you want and if you buy one share of one penny stock you’re not going to pay seven dollars in commission fees basically. You know. I’ve said basically a ton in this article. So I apologize for that. But you’re going to save a bunch of money and you can experiment with the app you can buy whatever you want basically basically once again god come on and. You know. you can just you can kind of go wild and there aren’t many consequences aside from losing your own money. But you’re not going to pay for trades you’re not going to pay for fees. You know. if you want to buy Robin Hood gold that’s something you can do and you can pay more for that. But the same time do I have to buy that and that’s fantastic. Because. You know. it makes investing very easy and it makes it less stressful. So if you’re a younger person coming into investing you want to learn stuff. But you don’t want to pay seven eight nine dollars for. You know. brokerage fees per trade and I don’t blame you. Because. You know. that kind of sucked when I used like fidelity for example you got to pay for every single trade and I don’t personally like that Robin Hood really takes investing back to the common people. Okay, and I think that’s absolutely fantastic so in terms of Robin Hood versus. You know. investment not apps investment companies such as fidelity American Century Investments that kind of thing I would choose Robin Hood any day. Because they may not have some of the professional features that you’re looking for. But at the same time they have many features that are definitely worthwhile so they may not be super professional they may not charge you they may not do all this crazy stuff by the same time they got what you need and that’s good enough for me. Now when talking about Robin Hood versus other investment apps such as stache invest Accords Federman m-1 finance I billionaire. You know. I could name a million of them loyal three used to be one loyal three want to funked so we’re not going to talk about that many more I probably will talk about them. But in the future not worry about them for. Now um. You know. stash invest. Okay, Robin Hood versus – invest for example stash invest is a conglomeration of ETFs they don’t really help you out with choosing them they just kind of say hey here’s some ETFs they have widely varying expense ratios you’re going to be charged to use stash invest. So you got to pay stash you got to pay the expense ratios of the ETFs and you got to choose these random ETFs that are given random titles and it’s not very helpful. Okay, it’s kind of like wandering through a swamp and. You know. Shrek’s over there and some guys trying to like sell you something that that was a really weird description. But anyway. You know. like it’s just not it doesn’t really make sense the form of stash invest so stash versus Robin Hood I would go. You know. Robin Hood any day of the week and I’m not I am biased. But at the same time I’ve been using all these investment apps for like a couple of years and just stash kind of sucks. All right, I’m going to give it to you straight I’m not a huge fan of – I’m learning to use it better by the same time it needs improvement. Okay, Robin Hood versus betterment and acorns I think those can kind of be clumped together um honestly I would still pick Robin Hood however Betterman a chords very easy to use I kind of don’t like the lack of transparency with like betterment for example. Because they could just be taking your money and using it for different things and then just paying out a set ratio of the vert that they’ve already decided upon that you’re going to earn without actually investing in the actual stock market that’s the thing that happens just want to let. You know. that that can happen. So I like. You know. Robin Hood. Because I’m buying things directly I know the exact outcome it’s very wide open and I can see everything I love that. Okay, ah let’s see here I billionaire versus Robin Hood I billionaires. Okay, it’s lacking in features and it doesn’t work on androids that annoys me a lot. But I billionaire is like it’s. All right, I guess um Robin Hood versus I’m trying to think of the other one finance Robin heard Robin Hood Robin Harriet versa gentleman finance. I personally like Robin Hood better and one finance brings some nice features to the table and with num1 finance you can buy stocks pretty selectively once again which I do like. But with Robin Hood. You know. you you you kind of set up your own portfolio and what finance kind of does that. You know. for you a little so my finance makes it. But easier to sell portfolio at the same time Robin Hood you can use tools such as the Morningstar portfolio instant x-ray and that works pretty well too. So I don’t want to make this article too long. Because I don’t want to ramble too much or anything I just want to kind of talk about these different investment apps how they stacked up with Robin Hood and why basically I think you should still use Robin Hood above anything else I think it just makes sense. You know. it’s a very very good app and I’m going to make some more articles on the support system and everything like that. Because it does have some quirks. But at the same time. You know. just just want to update you on what I think of Robin Hood versus other apps so hope you all enjoyed the article hope you all learn something if you did feel free to like share subscribe stick right here the tech grant helps folks hope you all have a fantastic fantastic day I know that I am having a fantastic day so have a good one folks and adios you.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the good old tech crank house once again today I will be talking about my newly arranged portfolio basically why it set up the way it is why I think it should be decent how much money it should be netting me per week or whatever theoretically how much it should be netting me and also I changed my camera to 60 frames per second so hopefully it looks nice and smooth if you can watch it on YouTube in 60 that should be good for you if not I apologize. But. Yeah, so anyway folks hope you’re all having a great day and I’m going to go ahead and get right into it so basically with this my portfolio’s valued around around sixty four hundred bucks or something like that I’m not sure what the exact number is. Because I’m not looking at the home screen name where I think it’s about sixty four hundred if I’m not mistaken so basically with this portfolio I have done my best to kind of set up a nice structure where. I think there’s a good variability of. You know. different funds and things like that that should help me grow over all and they’re all allocated somewhat equally although I will go through and explain the allocations so many of them are ETFs and I do have a couple of penny stocks hanging off of the tail and I’ll probably talk about those a little bit I’ll be talking more about penny stocks in the future so watch out for those articles and. Yeah, so I’m going to go ahead and start right out with BW o here so as I said about sixty 400 bucks and I’m going to go ahead break it down for you so first things first. Okay, VW o and also I want to say this portfolio will probably net me about 20 bucks per week or so 22 to probably 25 to 30 actually. Because I believe it has a growth average of 22 percent annually which is quite good honestly for the for the ETFs I’ve assembled so we have VW or first things first. Okay, VW o is pretty nice it’s a bang guard. You know. emerging market vtf. So I like to hit those emerging markets. Because they have a lot of growth potential and they have a lot of growing to do I think they have. You know. a good amount of space to kind of move around grow some wiggle room. You know. and that’s good stuff I like that as invest I’m a relatively young guy. So I figured. You know. I got some time hopefully to invest and. Yeah, sometimes emerging markets can really be beneficial also I’m going to kind of ignore the dividend yield for these they’re probably around 2% total for each one probably bout two percent annually kind of negligible we’re going to just use that and add it on to the growth is kind of a base measurement that can kind of reduce some volatility in the account so yes. Okay, Vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets ETF I have one thousand dollars of equity in that one. Okay, next actually and you can see the one-year growth here is 21% next we have X T it is the iShare is exponential technologies ETF good stuff overall and honestly has good exposure to technology funds I like that kind of thing. Because I think technology is huge and it’s only growing really of course. You know. it’s not guaranteed to keep growing and I’m sure there will be some sort of setback with with technology before too long. But anyway one year growth for this one is actually 32 percent I have about a thousand bucks of equity in this one as well which is not too bad. But decent. You know. decent next way of EOG which is the Vanguard S&P 500 growth ETF this one. I actually like. Okay, 124 dollars per share not too bad alright I I like the other ones too I shouldn’t say this one I like one year 20% not bad growth. Okay, really not bad overall 18 shares at twenty four twenty two hundred dollars of total equity. So this is a larger one makes them probably. You know. a decent percentage thirty percent or so the account. But I do like to set different allocations basically for different funds I do feel like this one is basically more of a backbone kind of a kind of a strong probably more reliability higher growth fund. So I figured it might be good to have a higher allocation actually into it so. Yeah, there’s that one there. Okay, one year growth 20% as I previously said. Okay, also next we have V TIV T is the total stock market ETF gives you a nice exposure all around the globe once again kind of more emerging markets that kind of good I have about a thousand bucks in that one -. Okay, it’s not bad next we have VB Vanguard small camp ETF I like small caps as I previously said they have a higher growth potential usually than than large market caps which I do like. Because. You know. sometimes large market caps can be less exciting and grow less and long-run they are stable. But not as much growth potential there. Okay, so there is still some though don’t get me wrong about that one year growth here let’s go ahead and look at that 19% growth pretty good one of the lower ones on the list. But still pretty good overall. Okay, so as you can see I have about nine hundred and fifty three dollars in there of equity not bad. Okay, not bad so next we’re going to move on to the penny stocks I have been buying some penny stocks and actually um I’m going to be explaining my penny stock trading method in some upcoming articles so watch out for that that should be good. Okay, once again I keep this the 60 FPS looks super smooth and I just I love that. Okay, I should have should have done that earlier. All right, so I’m th LD DC th and delcamp is doing very well today I’ve been keeping my eye on it I’m actually I recorded this article twice today I started recording and hilariously enough. I actually was not recording to any sort of card on my emulator so my I just wasn’t recording anything at all and I have to reshoot everything it’s fine and it’s worth it. But like actually this morning I captured a trade I did with del cap live while I was doing this article and it was really cool. Because. I actually showed how I could make some money. You know. trading the penny stocks and. You know. I just I its anyway anyway I’m not going to complain okay. But basically. Yeah, del cante is on there alright FAL see Falcon. Okay, that was on there too Falcon software also. Yeah, penny that’s I want to talk more about penny stocks ball do that in future articles. Okay, next tip this is actually my watch list okay. So I only have Falcon Dell can and threshold Pharmaceuticals so far, I’m looking to add more. So I am thinking about your suggestions too for the penny stock article so I’m going to get into those later. But for the time being folks I think that’s going to do it for article. So I hope you all enjoyed have a truly fantastic day we’re almost at 10,000 subs which is once again truly super exciting for me so have a good one folks and adios you.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the good old tech crack house here. Now the article today actually revolves around the Robin Hood app so feel free to enjoy the article like share and subscribe and stick around for more and without further ado I’m going to go ahead and transfer over to the computer what is uh please gents welcome back to the adult tech crack house as I previously said today I just actually want to talk about my career portfolio which is earning roughly fifteen dollars per week or two dollars per day. Now basically that’s an average of the account basically what it should earn over the the course of a year or so basically broken down to certain time periods based on estimated growth so not necessarily 100% like it’s it’s not paying out that much per day like two bucks per day I’m still playing a monthly different portfolio rest assured. All right, I’m still very interested in that I just uh basically I wanted to go ahead and put my money back and some blue chips. So it can kind of sit and do some work while. I actually keep looking at monthly to monthly paying. You know. stocks to make a monthly paying portfolio the thing is here this is actually pretty much all comprised of blue chips. So if you’re interested in this setup I would. You know. definitely recommend checking these out. Because they’re obviously very interesting so the first one we have is Vanguard total stock market ETF. All right, very good fund. I actually have been invested in this one for a while. Now and I got to say I like it. Okay, it’s a pretty run-of-the-mill ETF honestly like pretty good market cap and everything like that seventy five point eight billion dollars of market cap which is honestly pretty nice overall. So I really have no complaints with this one. Yeah, I. You know. I like it and then. I actually have one hundred and twenty it’s one hundred and twenty dollars for sure I have fourteen shares of the stock currently so my total equity value is about 1700 witches. You know. it may be a little bit higher than most of the stocks in this portfolio. But anyway next we have MGK which is the mega cap 300 growth etf fifteen hundred dollars of equity in this one you can see the market cap here is definitely much smaller. But it’s basically a mega cap. You know. growth ETF consisting of many stocks that have been honestly doing pretty well over the past short while so. Yeah, next we have vu g which is Vanguard growth ETF basically this one 15 close to sixteen hundred dollars of equity also then you can see the the murga camp is a little bit better on this guy here it’s pretty small dividend deal. But that’s not really these this is pretty much just a strong growth portfolio next we have the eye USG and the iShares S&P US growth etf basically. Yeah, this one’s not too bad also about $1600 of equity in this one so far, it’s done decently market cap pretty small in this one to dividend yield not really that amazing either. But. You know. next shaunb at u.s. large camp and growth etf this one is actually has the smallest dividend of them market camp pretty good once again and. You know. quite frankly. Yeah, decent equity value probably. I mean 1639 is is not too bad. But the overall cost of the portfolio is actually $8,000 so that’s pretty much why I have put in there right. Now and it’s distributed among these five which are actually very low expense they’re they’re not very expensive to own at all and I want to make a article about expense ratios too so basically I just want to cover that really quick. Because. You know. why not I think it’s a very interesting thing to talk about and I like talking about it. Because honestly the yields are pretty good with that pretty satisfactory I think and. Yeah, so that’s going to do it for this article folks so feel free to like share and subscribe and stick around for more and adios.
what’s up ladies and gents welcome back to the good old tech crack house here I hope you’re all having a great great day today I’m actually going to be talking about something regarding dividends versus not dividends basically the advantages of using dividend paying stocks that pay monthly and etc etc versus using. You know. long term growth stocks we’re not even long-term necessarily. But even short-term and I’m going to try to I try to discuss which one is better. So I hope that you like this content if you do please feel free to leave a like share and subscribe and I’m going to go ahead and get right into it so basically I seem to meet two camps of people with. You know. kind of actually collecting significant interest and even payments on stocks and you have people that really like dividend payments. You know. especially frequent monthly. You know. high percentage yield dividend payments and then you have people that pretty much only like growth stocks there is some in between I think the dividends are great. I think that they can be kind of burden burdensome for some reason for certain reasons. I mean and a big reason why it’s not always a good idea to go for dividends only. Now I’m not saying that you can’t do both you can’t go for dividends and long-term growth. But with dividends you do actually have to pay taxes on them for every dividend you receive and there are some funds that are actually exempt from taxes which is pretty cool. But if you’re receiving. You know. a dividend payout of 20% a year you have to pay taxes on all that money that you’ve made which can really add up. You know. especially if you’re collecting significant amounts of dividends and a really interesting thing about dividends actually is they basically act as income. So you have to pay income tax on them with long term investment it’s pretty much always capital gain taxes that you pay. Yeah, basically when you when you collect a dividend you have to pay tax on it and it counts as income. So you have to pay within your tax bracket basically. So if you’re in a fifteen percent or twenty five percent tax bracket you actually have to pay fifteen or twenty five percent on the dividends that you collect another risk is actually collecting income from dividends could push you into another tax bracket basically so say for example you’re in the twenty five percent tax bracket it could push you up into the twenty eight percent which is kind of a big jump. But at the same time it is something that I think could be avoided outright if you just did long term investment. Now dividends can be useful especially if they’re paid out monthly. Because you can really speed up compounding interest with that that kind of payout especially if you reinvested each month when you receive the dividends which is actually a tactic which is pretty well known I think is. You know. compound interest applied rapidly I guess is it’s what I would call it. But once again even if you are immediately investing dividends reinvesting dividends that you collect you do have to pay tax on whatever you earned. So it can be a good way to kind of waste money I guess I do fully support it. I think that it’s still a good method I just think that sometimes people forget that they have to pay tax on certain things and dividends are definitely one of them. So, you know. if you don’t want to pay any more taxes than you already do dividends might be a good idea to avoid long term investment it’s interesting. Because it doesn’t really put as much cash in your pocket per se. Because. You know. if you’re collecting a lot dividends then you can actually directly withdraw them from your account and kind of have them and spend them or save them and do whatever you want with the cash that you’ve collected with long-term growth you can’t really do that which I guess shouldn’t come as any surprise. But you don’t really get any money back until you actually sell the investment which isn’t necessarily a bad thing and. I think that it encourages waiting another good thing about long-term investment is um capital gains stock is actually a capital gains tax rate pardon me is actually what you pay on what you earn so it’s not really income necessarily. So if you wait different lengths of times you can avoid paying as much on your long term taxes say if you wait for a year after owning a stock you’ll actually pay a reduced percentage on your taxes for that sale and for your capital gain. So this is kind of something that you have to consider taxes are a lot different with dividends like I said you have to pay income tax with long term investment you pay capital gains tax and you don’t you can kind of get breaks if you hold stock for a certain length of time so definitely two options to consider of course I would suggest finding kind of a blend. You know. that happy medium I wouldn’t necessarily go all or nothing. You know. a lot of people really like to focus on dividend stocks and I think that’s fine. But just be careful. You know. definitely put some put some good growth and stability in there too. Because dividend stocks um they’re different they act differently. So. It really depends on what you’re going for. But. I think that I just kind of want to discuss that really quick and just kind of share my opinion on. You know. dividends versus long-term growth and why they’re kind of different and. You know. why they’re beneficial or not beneficial in certain ways. So I hope that you liked the article if you did feel free to like share and subscribe and consider checking out my patreon page I really appreciate it if any of you do and that’s going to do it from you today ladies and gents so have a fantastic day and adios.
what’s up ladies and gents and welcome back to the tech cash house. So if you like this content feel free to leave a like share and subscribe and hit that little notification button below to receive an update every single time the tech cash house uploads another REO what’s up ladies and gents. So I want to announce and I’m actually pretty happy to announce that I’m going to start using a ton of different investment apps again and my computer is making noise sorry pardon me pardon that noise for second there and I’m really pretty thrilled with this. Because I want to bring all of you yet more coverage of investment apps I think it’s very important and one of them that we’re actually going to be looking at is a billionaire. Now I billionaire is kind of an interesting app in that it has a good deal of accessibility it lets you trade stocks pretty well it doesn’t really let you trade stocks pretty freely. But it’s pretty unrestricted when it comes to actually um. You know. who it lets trade stocks and for that reason it’s quite good and I do like it I do have a couple of gripes with I billionaire here. Because their Android version or their Android app is relatively unrefined and you can’t actually trade with it yet unless they’ve recently updated it and. I mean very recently the last time actually checked that app it looked like it was still pretty much only for. You know. more research purposes as opposed to actually trading. But the AI billionaire app on iOS actually works pretty darn well and it’s pretty good for trading. So I opened up the app today and I realized that. I actually had about a hundred dollars in the account still which is weird it’s been slowly declining. Because they have been charging me to use their app which. You know. only really makes sense. Because it’s one dollar per month I believe two uses i billionaire app. But essentially I had a hundred bucks in there. So I thought hey. You know. what I would go I’ll go ahead and reinvest that I believe I put it in the I billionaire ETF which I’m actually a big fan of it’s a pretty decent ETF and the last time I held it on this app as you can see I’m trying to scroll on my phone here it actually performed pretty decently over the short period of time that I held it so when we’re looking that pretty good and then I have 25 dollars being invested and I believe the I billionaire fund every week which is actually a pretty realistic approach I feel. Because a lot of people in the youth investment apps and I definitely encourage this invest weekly and then each week. You know. a little bit more money has ended your investments grow it’s not all that stress on your wallet it doesn’t make you worry as much about losing money it’s just kind of a nice gradual way to save and invest on a highly I really find that helpful personally and I’m sure many of you would also. So this is the amp this is the main page on iOS I have covered this in the past however I really haven’t looked looked at it too in-depth I would like to look at it. You know. on a much finer scale I guess I would like to really look it over and get to know the app more closely I just wanted to announce that I will be using the app again. So I want to let all of. You know. and thank you thank you for encouraging me to use different vestment apps. Because I do really enjoy it I enjoy checking these out and I’m really interested to get to get more back into this. You know. I’ve been covering a lot of cryptocurrency lately which I like. But at the same time investment apps are really cool also and they’re really important so let me know what else do you want to see you let me know if you want me to cover any app specifically I’d be more than happy to and thank you all for watching this article as always thank you so much for watching your viewership is greatly appreciated and we hope to see you for the next article this channel is powered by viewers like you.

so we all know that investing in the stock market carries risk and I want to discuss my personal strategy today my personal strategy in my own portfolio I have 37 dividend paying stocks and I want to discuss the very steps that I take to mitigate risk the steps that I take to lower my level of risk my strategy is multi-tiered I have a variety of different levers that I use to manage my risk and this is really a top-down strategy here on my channel PPC Ian this is a thriving community of dividend growth investors. I do a lot of bottom self analysis I’m looking at specific stocks and analyzing specific stocks today’s article is a little bit different it’s more of a top-down approach I’m taking a portfolio wide view and I’m looking overall at my portfolio how I made a gate risk and this is actually a recent subscriber question so I’m really excited to queue this article up we actually subscriber asked me this question just the other day and I just had to do it. Because the subscriber is spending a lot of time investing in his education he’s reading this book poor Charlie’s Almanac this is the book of Charles Munger Charlie Munger Warren Buffett’s famed business partner and. I actually have the book right here it’s funny this is a gift that I received I’ve actually not not read the book yet. But I’ve got a signed dish and check that out there’s some Charlie Munger’s signature right there on the the opening page they are of the book so I’m really excited about that I’ve got to read this and this subscriber actually really piqued my interest with this particular question and the subscriber basically said hey Ian I’m reading this book and Charlie Munger basically says that there are cases there are cases out there where stuff just comes out of left field there are things that you never envisioned there are things in life in investing that just come come into the forefront of of your investment portfolio that you could have never saw before and I look at that is risk with investing there’s risk there’s things that can come up even Charlie Munger acknowledges that despite all of his best efforts Warren Buffett’s best efforts there are things that come to the forefront in their portfolio that they didn’t expect and so how can one deal with that how can one position themselves for that that is what today’s article is all about so welcome to the article thank you again for the amazing subscriber question I really really appreciate the question great one and I have so many questions I am doing my best to get through each and every one of them so I’m excited to do another subscriber request article so let’s get started first and foremost I have talked about this before if you’ve been on my channel for a while I don’t want to spend a lot of time here. But inherently dividend growth investing this is investing for dividends like I do dividends that come in that can be used to pay the bills something is small is going out and buying a cup of coffee at Starbucks or something as big is paying for one’s mortgage payment or or one some apartment rental costs as well there are all kinds of uses of dividends and I invest for dividends when I buy a stock the only thing I’m looking at is how much income will that stock pay me over time and as the company grows as it grows its dividend will my dividend income increase that’s all I look at I don’t look at stock prices in terms of capital appreciation it’s just I’m not looking to buy low and sell high and so let’s look at this by nature dividends take away risk why is that in this chart here I have two lines I have one that’s price per share as we all know PPS price per share for any given stock it can be all over the map when one looks at over time ups and downs all over the place if one is relying on price per share to pay their bills that can be a little bit tricky. Because what if one buys here and then oops right here the mortgages do or down here I’ve got two got to sell some stock to pay my property taxes there are so many challenges with that strategy in my personal opinion especially looking at shorter periods of time that in my opinion it’s a no-brainer to go the dividend route. Now by contrast let’s look at this line this red line is dividends and dividends for the types of companies I own like McDonald’s for example they typically raise the dividend each year and they have done this for over long periods of time and so despite where this price per share is despite where the share price is going my dividends are a stream of income it’s typically up and to the right and that alone takes away the risk. Because I just don’t care where the share prices I surely care from an entry point the lower the share price the better my entry point the better my starting yield. So I love it when share prices are down and certainly over long long periods of time I like to see the share price up. Because it’s indicative that the company is doing well it’s just another way of measuring company performance. But in the short run medium run share prices up and down I take a lot of comfort that my dividends are up and to the right and so investing in dividends investing for dividends for that cash flow alone having that as my strategy it just takes away so much inherent risk in the stock market as long as I don’t need my principal I don’t need to sell the stock to make a profit and so that alone is why invest in dividends. But we talked about this before. So I don’t want to spend too much time I want to move on. Now to my diversification strategy it is so important in my opinion to diversify and a lot of people think about diversification the wrong way this is actually why I wanted to do this article a lot of people stop start more like bottoms up they just start buying stocks and they’re like hey I’m buying whatever’s on sale and buying whatever is attractive at the moment and I’m doing that to diversify however I think a lot of people they’re not always achieving the goals that they want to. Because they’re not thinking about things more from a top down approach and. So I want to go from my top down approach and you’ll see how it’s very different from just picking and choosing different stocks or more of a bottoms-up method so check this out first one is just time it’s important in my opinion to diversify buy time what does this mean let’s say I $50,000 right. Now and I want to invest it in the stock market well if I take that $50,000 and I put it all in tomorrow that is not diversifying by time that is taking a lot of risk I am assuming that tomorrow is going to be a great entry point. But I just don’t know that what I’ve always found is dollar cost averaging is a great strategy if I have some money I’m going to deploy it in the market why not take that 50,000 and put it in slowly. But surely over time a little bit each and every month until I’m fully in and I’ve done a article actually on how I would hypothetically invest $50,000 if I were starting all over again I’m in a link in the description below to that article if you want to check it out. But basically this is the concept of time time diversification is more important as once portfolio gets bigger and is one’s amount of money they’re deploying gets bigger let’s say I was hypothetically starting over again with $1,000 I would not diversify by time I would just get that thousand dollars working for me immediately. Because that would be my first stepping-stone in terms of adding more to the market. But again is some some money get bigger in let’s say at 50,000 or 100,000 or even 500,000 hypothetically to invest I would certainly want to diversify by time I would personally take the money divvy it up and deploy a little bit each month and of course is the sum of money getting deployed gets bigger the more time it will take to deploy it all and that way I’m it agates some of the market risk price per share of various stocks or just the market overall tends to go up and down I’m not taking a big bet on any one moment in time I think this is huge this is something that goes lost on a lot of investors out there I think dividend investors generally get this especially. Because this is typically how if one does participate in dividend reinvestment plans I’ll link in the description below what those are all about those tend to cater to these types of investors who want to diversify by time like myself anyways let’s move on industry so don’t look at the companies right. Now don’t look at the stocks that I have listed here let’s just start with industries before I do anything when I am creating a portfolio when I am planning my portfolio I’m in determining how this portfolio will be I like to put a weight put aside the companies at the beginning and I start just thing about industries what industries do I need representation across to achieve diversification these are not all of the industries that I have in my portfolio. But these are the ones I’ve discussed so far, on my channel. So I wanted just to use familiar industries that I’ve already discussed here on PPC Ian I own stocks in healthcare consumer none cyclical industrials restaurants utilities real estate energy chemicals technology a lot of different industries this is really important to think about industry before thinking about company. Because if one just thinks about company they may pick a bunch of different companies thinking they’re diversifying. But then they look back and they’re like wait a minute all these companies I have they’re in the same industry they’re all utilities if someone just buys a bunch of utilities that’s not really going to diversify one’s risk away. Because the utility sector more or less will probably perform most of the stocks in tandem they will tend to perform in lockstep surely there will be winners and losers and I like to diversify within industry we’ll get to that in a minute. But before diversifying within an industry it’s mostly important in my opinion to get representation across most of the eight major industries. Now maybe there’s a certain industry you don’t like you don’t feel comfortable you don’t like it at all it you don’t have to have all the industries and. In fact, I’m missing certain industries I’ll tell you one industry actually that I am missing right. Now in my portfolio is insurance I’m nothing against the insurance industry actually I just don’t have representation and so that’s an industry I’ll probably add in the future it may be sooner than later. But right. Now I don’t have it representation in that industry. So you don’t need every industry I don’t need every industry to achieve diversification. But I surely like having representation across a broad array of industries so next once I picked out the industries that’s when I start picking stocks and here is a representation of just some of the stocks that I have shared on my channel. Now I own 37 stocks this isn’t all of them this is a good chunk of them here health care for example I own Johnson Johnson and Pfizer consumer none cyclical Pepsi Procter Gamble kimberly-clark Clorox General Mills and Campbell’s soup so on and so forth here’s where it gets interesting once one is diversified by industry it may make sense in certain industries to have representation from more than one company especially if it’s a paler industry it’s one of your favorite industries it’s an industry that is a bellwether within the portfolio if you’ve been following me. You know. I’m all about consumer non cyclical I love consumer non cyclical so just here alone these are. I actually have more than this I have more stocks than this in consumer non cyclical. But you can see here one two three four or five six of them listed here. Now what’s in important to notice is some of these industries are broader reaching in scope than others consumer non cyclical is a great example of that Pepsi for example makes food and beverages Procter Gamble makes household goods kimberly-clark household goods and also goods that are used in industry paper goods Clorox cleaning supplies. But they also have some new other other products as well like the Burt’s Bees line and I think they own glad bags as well so they’ve got a few different lines one in the beauty mostly in kind of cleaning cleaning type of stuff General Mills Campbell Soup food. So you see here if I had a bucket them Pepsi General Mills Campbell Soup they’re kind of all in one bucket general like the food bucket. But in terms of kind of cleaning household goods type stuff I’ve got Procter Gamble Kimberly Clark and Clorox and. So this is really important when one has already picked their industries one is already decided hey I’m going to diversify by time. Now I’m gonna start picking companies it’s really important not to just pick all the same companies for example if I was starting over again and I was buying my consumer non cyclical stocks would I want to just buy Pepsi and General Mills and Campbell’s Soup probably not if I had a smaller portfolio and I just starting out and I wanted a few stocks in consumer non cyclical I would probably buy one food stock maybe Pepsi and then maybe I’d start with something else like a kimberly-clark to kind of diversify into consumer goods and so it’s really important to think about things that way and again the the approach of just coming bottoms up and picking a bunch of companies it doesn’t always achieve diversification. Because one may actually be defeating their there themselves they may actually be buying the very stocks that are all similar coming from bottoms up they may say hey Kimberly Clark is on sale right. Now Procter Gamble is on sale right. Now o Clorox looks good and then all of a sudden one might think hey I own three stocks I’m kind of diversified well not really. Because they’re all in the same industry and within that industry they all do more or less similar things so moving on you’ll see some of these industries here I don’t need quite as much diversification. Because some companies are just so diverse if I’d in themselves I’ll give you example well I’ll start with my favorite company Johnson Johnson and I’m going to link to some articles in the description below I have articles representing a lot of these companies already on my youtube channel if you want to learn more check out the the link in the description below we’ll go through those in great detail. But Johnson Johnson is a big company 326 billion dollar market cap they have business units across pretty much everything as it comes to health well-being medical pharmaceutical medical devices all kinds of stuff and so in healthcare for example I could probably be fine just owning Johnson Johnson and this has actually been my strategy on Pfizer too. But I’ve got the lion’s share of my money for the healthcare sector in J&J and I feel good about that. Because it’s diversified within itself however let’s take a different look at another company like consumer not cyclical Campbell Soup. Yeah, they’ve got a lot of products and it’s pretty well diversified. But it’s a smaller company they’re pretty dependent on certain product lines at the company is that going to get me the diversification I need to represent the entire consumer non cyclical bucket no and so it’s important to look at things that way as well as how diversified is a particular company and if a company is not that well diversified sometimes it makes sense to pick up other companies in the same sector to give yourself that diversification another way I like to diversify is based on market cap so these companies all have different valuations different market capitalizations the market cap is the number of shares outstanding x multiplied by the price per share it’s how much aggregate value is the company worth like I said J&J 326 billion that’s a big company. But there’s other companies that are smaller like Southern Company one we’ve talked about here a lot 47 billion and even smaller Realty income the company that I own that pays a dividend every month a monthly dividend company 15 billion I like to diversify by market cap. Because there’s certain market cycles where mega cap stocks do well certain market cycles were mid cap stocks do well certain market cycles where small cap stocks do well I like a portfolio where I see stocks going up and down the same time they kind of cancel each other out they mitigate some of the risk and I have always found that having a diversification strategy where everything is the same they’re all mega caps that just doesn’t work for me I like to have small caps like Realty income mid caps like southern and large caps like Johnson Johnson I diversify by market capitalization when I’m building my stock portfolio what else quantity of positions this goes without saying. But in general the more positions the more diversified one’s going to be the more risk is going to get mitigated away I own 37 positions if something happens to one of the companies in the portfolio it’s not going to make or break me if it were mainly if it were my number one stock Johnson Johnson is something Horrible’s happened like the company folded certainly that would have an impact on the company. Because I have a good chunk of the portfolio in there that being said it still wouldn’t make or break me. Because I diversified so well here’s what it comes down to I love having a lot of positions in the portfolio. But at the same time it can become a management overhead at a certain point enough is enough and I have found at 37 I’m getting there adding one or two more I’ll probably do it like I said at some point I want exposure to the insurance sector that being said I am in no rush. Now to add more positions. Because it’ll be a management nightmare that being said having too few I would have the the opposite challenge I would be a little bit more worried a little bit more concerned about being able to weather any storm like like Charlie said in poor Charlie’s Almanac it’s just these curveballs they can come your way you don’t know what’s coming the unexpected well by having 37 stocks I can weather the unexpected I can weather the unexpected even if it happens to several of my positions at one time. So I like having 37 positions and when I have my 37 positions I like to think about how I will weight them some of them I weight as core positions some medium some small I do that to mitigate risk as well and I’m going to link in the description below I have a whole article about that strategy how I like to weight different stocks in different buckets a lot of it just comes down to which socks are the best and core positions which ones are kind of medium study players which ones are just more ancillary one exposure. But I don’t feel quite as comfortable adding more money as I would to my more favored companies. But anyways just by having 37 and a lot of them are a good chunk of them represented here it just gives me that peace of mind that look even within the same industry a certain company maybe just something really wacky has happened something really weird having that diversification surely helps anyways I’m gonna move on. Now we’re talking about how to mitigate risk what I’ve talked about so far, mitigates risk within the portfolio itself. But there’s other types of risk in life. You know. certainly my stock portfolio could be doing great. But what if an unexpected bill comes up what if something unexpected happens at the job what if something just unexpected happens that requires a lot of money well I have come to realize in 2018 that it is really great to have an emergency fund it is really comforting it is really nice to have an emergency fund it was not always that way for me I’ll link in the description below in most of my years of investing I went all-in never had an emergency fund I’m glad I did it I when I was younger when I didn’t have kids when I could take on a little bit more risk I just went all-in and I wanted to. Because I knew the market was that really depressed levels as well and it was a good buying opportunity. But over time the market has gone up my life has changed I have two beautiful kids. Now and a wife and. So I have responsibilities and. Because I have those responsibilities it’s really important to have an emergency fund it helps me sleep at night it helps me weather the unexpected in surely if something unexpected happens I don’t want to have to sell stocks and so look my emergency fund right. Now it’s still just getting off the ground floor. But I am adding to it every month and it’s something that’s at top of mind it’s actually been challenging for me quite frankly. Because when ever money rolls in my natural reaction is to put it in the market I just can’t stop buying dividend stocks. I actually link in the description below I did a whole article about this I. I get I get to this point where I just have to buy dividend stocks I can’t I can’t get enough of it and I’ve had to be very conscious this year and very much exercising self-control to earmark the money for the emergency fund and not not deploying it all in the stock market and so that’s been a new challenge for me. But it’s important. Because I’m all about mitigating risk at this point it’s really important to me at this stage in my life and I’m I’m really thankful for the emergency fund one of the other things I want to mention is other assets how can one mitigate risk well maybe it’s not all about dividend stocks this is kind of a an interesting point it’s a nuanced point if you’ve been following my channel. You know. I’m all about dividend stocks that’s my thing sometimes I dabble in angel investing as well smaller sliver of my portfolio and I’m actually am a proponent as well of retirement accounts as long as they provide some unique benefit so one example of unique benefit does the employer offer an employer match another unique benefit is does it does the retirement plan potentially allow one to defer taxes maybe it’s a pre-tax retirement plan another example of a retirement plan is that may make a lot of sense is maybe it’s a retirement plan that allows one to compound money tax-free anyways one thing I have come to realize over the years is too many accounts is a management nightmare it’s just a management overhead it is too complex too confusing to manage. But at the same time too few accountants could expose oneself to risks so what I have come to terms with is have the great dividend strategy have the emergency fund pepper in a few other assets not too many. But a few strategically where it may make a lot of sense. So this is my fun article here on mitigating risk today thank you so much for watching and thank you for that question that was a great subscriber question and it was really fun leveraging poor Charlie’s Almanac here. Now and my interest is really piqued I really want to read this thing this is a big book by the way thick book and this will be a fun one I got a reading I got the signed edition so it’s been on my to-do list forever before I leave today I want to add a full disclosure I own the stocks mentioned in today’s article.

today I’m going to give you a shortcut that you can use to stand out from the competition and all the other noise that distracts people online I’m going to give you a formula that you can use that will help you to win over your perfect prospect and increase your sales and your conversions as a result after this welcome back guys this is profit copilot calm my name is Mick meanie and I’m gonna help you get better results online through your website and through your email list so today I’m going to give you a shortcut that you can use to deliver a powerful message that grabs and holds the immediate attention of your perfect prospect. Now this is a formula from John Kelton copywriting genius John Carlton and he claims that most marketers screw this stuff up so we’re going to use his formula to do it right. Because you only have a couple of seconds to grab and hold the attention of your prospect. You know. there’s so much noise on the internet there’s so much competition in every nation listen every nation is saturated ok so there’s so much noise out there we need a shortcut that bypasses all that stuff unless or stand out in our marketplace so when our prospect reaches us they know that they are absolutely in the right place at the right time so I’m going to give you the shortcut the formula that you need to grab and hold the immediate attention of your perfect prospect. But what is a perfect prospect. Okay, it’s someone who desperately needs your offer it’s someone who is in front of you at that time when they need it and it’s someone who can afford to buy your offer. Now the shortcut that I’m going to give you works in person it works through print media it works online so through adverts through emails from articles through blog posts. Okay, here’s a shortcut and listen this works like crazy remember that the prospect they don’t know you they don’t know who you are they don’t trust you and they don’t want to be sold to. Okay, they just have a problem some kind of trauma and that could be a minor trauma or it could be something extreme they just have a problem that they need to fix you have the solution you have the fix that they need so it’s your job to help them realize it without freaking them out without making them feel like they’re being sold -. So you really do have a couple of seconds to grab and hold the immediate attention and deliver enough information to your prospect to keep them engaged to keep them interested so what do you do you have to give them enough information for them to realize who you are what you do and you have to position it in a way that grabs their attention and holds their interest John Kelton says that most marketers can’t explain that in 30 minutes let alone in a couple of seconds that’s. Because most marketers really don’t have a clear idea about what they do and they don’t know how to best present that so other people can understand it easily so here’s the formula this is going to help you to achieve that formula is we help blank do blank even if blank you just fill in the blanks right I’m gonna go through this in a bit more detail to help you understand it properly we help this is going to be a group of people do and that’s the exact benefit of something. So it could be cheaper it could be faster it could be easier even if and that’s the worst case scenario of the worst case believable scenario so does that make sense so far, I’ll actually give you an example. Okay, so an example for me could be I help marketers create high converting articles even if being on camera terrifies them so the first part is to identify a group of people who you help the second part is to identify how you’re going to help them what the main benefit for them is and then the third part is the worst case scenario so you’re removing the obstacles and those three things will help you to communicate your message to your perfect prospects a lot easier a lot clearer and will ultimately result in more sales for you. Because. Now you’ve got a system in place you’ve got a checklist don’t you and I’ve just laid out everything you need for you.

hey everybody welcome to profit called pilot I’m Mac meanie and this is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship so today I’m going to show you how to upload the products that we’ve been making in this series and then hook up the bye buttons so people can buy the products that you’ve made so for this we’re going to use WordPress we’re going to use one of the pages that we made a few days ago and that was the one-time offer page so what happens is someone subscribes to your email list and immediately they are redirected to a one-time offer page where they are offered a one-time offer and this is a very low priced item that will trigger the feelings of impulse buying. So it makes. It really easy for them to just buy the product and then we send them those guys down a separate type of sales funnel to the people who don’t choose to buy so I’m going to show you how to set that up in this article it’s a really simple and easy process and I’m going to show you step-by-step how you can do it so here we are in WordPress this is the page that we made that contains the lead magnet if someone clicks that they’ll just download the lead magnet. But we need to upload the tripwire product that we made and then we need to upload the online course that we made so here we are in WordPress let’s go to media add new and what I want you to do let me just drag these in so these are the products that we’ve made we’ve got the lead magnet here which we’ve already uploaded then we’ve got the tripwire product which we made the other day and then we’ve got the online course which we made previously too so all we need to do is drag in that file and that will start uploading immediately and there you can see it’s almost a core of sent done and then on it goes. So you repeat this process for the online course as well. Now you can upload that as a zip file or if you using article you can embed the articles on pages yourself. It really doesn’t matter it comes down to what you’re most comfortable with for this purpose I’m probably going to use a zip file so there we are it’s. Now uploaded 100% how much click on edit this is really important have a look at file URL so we’re going to take all of that we’re going to copy it then we’re going to paste it in its a notepad or whatever equivalent you’re using just so we’ve got a copy of that URL and this is going to come in handy in a second so we repeat the process again for your online course and again take a copy of that URL and I’m going to show you how we hook up the by buttons. Now so here we are at jvzoo and I really recommend using jvzoo if you’re brand new to selling online courses and products and stuff like that. Because this lets you get up and running really quickly so start selling it here and we’ll have to register for a new account and here in jvzoo we add new product and here we add product name internal product name description and the kateri look at all the categories we’ve got in jvzoo. So you can sell in all these niches and. Because this product the first one that we’re setting up is called a tripwire it needs to be a very low price item so them charging seven dollars for this and then I’m going to allow sales we can change the launch time if we want oh that’s good let me say something. Okay, this is really important with products of the day on jvzoo if you are awarded with jvzoo product of the day you can make five figures in 24 hours no sweat. So you want to make sure that you give them a fairly high Commission to make it worth their while to promote you as product of the day so make sure that you’ve got PayPal and stripe set up at the very least PayPal manually proof Phillip affiliates I would recommend and then seller details you need to put in your support email address that kind of thing just don’t worry too much about this stuff apart from here. Now product delivery remember that we copied that URL copy that and that becomes the thank you download URL page. Now we can get a bit fancy with things if we want to we can add an upsell on that page. But we’re not going to worry about that. Because jvzoo can do that for us so oh good we just hit save my product and we’re good to go oh I forgot to add the sales page so we just go back to the website grab that URL of the sales page paste it in sales page URL and then we should be good to go so we just do that process again for your online course and then set the price and stuff however you like it and then in jvz we got a sales funnels and we set up a new funnel and here we add the trip wire product first and then secondly we add in the course that you’re selling for this I’m going to just add a random product from my catalogue and there you go so when someone purchases the trip wire product they will then automatically be offered your online course which is going to be a higher price and that’s your upsell sequence done in jvzoo all we have to do. Now is hook up the Buy button so we go to chewier button make sure that we’ve got the sales funnel selected detox detox upsell for me and then we choose the Buy button that would like to display I’m going to choose that one I’ve go back to WordPress paste it in and. Now we can set the sales page for the trip wire so one-time offer get the mindset for the tugs success and then we’d add in benefit 1 then we add some strong sales copy perks with reasons to buy and then we hit update let’s have a look at the page. So you can mess around with the template and the theme and all that stuff you can make it look really great. But just for the purpose of simplicity and to get you up and running as fast as possible this is what we’ve got so far, today so they’ll we’ve got a very basic sales page and there we have no thank you I just want to download the complete guide to detox and that is that the lead magnet so what happens someone subscribes to the email list immediately afterwards that offered with this low priced item the tripwire if they don’t want to buy it they can just go ahead and download the lead magnet and that’s it the next thing you have to do is just create another sales page just like this for your online course. So you just repeat what we’ve gone through in this article so I’m going to leave you there next we’ve got to hook up the blog post which is going to bring people in to the website we need to sell the adverts to retarget to those visitors and we need to sell the follow up sequence in autoresponder that’s it then we’re done so hope you found this useful if you have hit the thumbs up button below subscribe to this channel hit the little notification bell and you will get another article like this from me tomorrow and that will help you to get more independence and freedom online entrepreneurship thank you very much for watching a hobby of a fantastic day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
hey everybody welcome to profit copilot I’m Mike Ranney and this channel is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship so today I’m going to show you how to make a trip wire product trip wires awesome let’s get into this so trip wires cover the cost of your adverts so obviously we are going to promote your stuff through advertising it’s the best way to get traffic and leads into your business. But when we use a trip wire product it essentially means that all the traffic that we’re getting is coming to the website for free. Because the trip wire is so low-priced and so enticing that it covers the cost of our advertising so we also use these to build trust so it’s a great way for your prospects or your customers to get to know you and start that relationship building process the rapport and all that stuff that becomes so profitable later on down the road in our funnels which we’ll get to in this process so trip wires are low prices of products typically between $7 and $30 we would keep them within that range they trigger the buying mode so they’ve changed the conversation in your prospects head from how they going to buy to how much are they going to spend and that’s the real purpose of a trip where obviously we have to deliver outstanding value in the tripwires really deliver over deliver. You know. make sure that the customer is gain absolute value for money. But we also use them to upsell to our main course remember yesterday we made the online course well the tripwire is going to promote that course so that helps you make more profit in the end so how do you structure your trip wires well there’s actually a really good formula or system that I have for you that you can just follow. You know. you’ve got multiple ways of making these which I’ll get into in a second. But imagine this as almost like going for coffee with someone that you’ve just met so the lead magnet is like asking for the phone number then the trip wire is like going for coffee and then the online course is like dating maybe that will help you to understand how this thing actually works so with a trip wire. Because it’s low price it’s low risk. You know. so we make it almost like it and then a snap decision and impulse buy the content the structure of the trip wire should make a promise thus first thing that you want to do in in your product if it’s PDF or article does mark then you show the end results of that promise and then you include some testimonials even if that testimonial is your own that’s perfectly cool and then you highlight common problems and then you get a bit personal in there you reveal your struggle you share over yourself share your story. Because the story is what people will remember and that will help you to bond with them quicker. You know. think about. You know. since like caveman times stories have been used and parables and no list of all the way through history we really connect with information when it’s told to us via story so we want to share your struggle tell people where you’ve come from the journey that you have been on and then we want to share your success so they can see that it is achievable for them too. Because if they have the same problems that you have experienced and they gone through the same the same process that you are going through and achieve the results that tells them that if they follow you they can achieve the same results as you so once we’ve got all that content in the tripwire the next thing we need to do is dispel some common myths and this helps position you as someone who is different to the competition. So you taking things that maybe are taking for granted common knowledge in your niche and then you dispel it you explain why it is wrong to believe that information and you give better alternatives and that’s where you give the solution and this shall be a really large section of your tripwire. Because this is where you actually given him the how-to information you give them the content the actionable stuff that they can use to solve their problem everything before that is all about the inner game the mindset helping them to realize exactly what the problem is how they can achieve it given them the self belief to do it and then you show them how to do it don’t underestimate the power of everything that comes before the solution. Because you need your prospects to believe in themselves and this of making the promise showing the results including the testimonials highlighting the problems showing your struggle sharing your success all that stuff allows them to develop the belief in themselves to solve the problem and that’s what it’s all about it’s this and kind of engineering their self belief giving them the motivation and the determination to improve the situation and then you give them the solution that allows them to do it and then once you have delivered the results that they have that they have signed up for that they’ve purchased they’ve bought into you which you’ve given the results that they need then you say well hey I’ve also got this and that’s where you pitch your online course and it doesn’t have to be a massive pitch. I would say keep the pitch to around five percent of the total of your tripwire product and that’s. Because we don’t want to sell them an advert do we want to give them absolute maximum value and then say well hey we’re gonna give you even more we’re going to help you take the next step on your journey we’re gonna make sure that you get long-term results and that’s where you you pitch your online course so how do we make these things well we can do PDF. So you can use Google Docs I really recommend using Google Docs you know. Because that means you can log in from anywhere with an internet connection using multiple devices I’ll sometimes work on the computer and then I’ll take a laptop and sit in Starbucks or somewhere carry on working and that’s. Because of Google Docs. You know. you can also use ms word or hey canva is really good too. You know. what I tend to do is write out my stuff in Google Docs or Evernote and then I take that and I put it into canva and format it and make it look pretty other good I’ve actually got another article about canva another option for you could be to do screen recording and I’ve done I’m actually doing one right. Now so here we’ve got like the little article screen with me live cam stuff and then down there next to me we’ve got all the text and stuff. You know. and all this stuff around me here that is just a screen recording so for that you can use keynote you can use PowerPoint and then record your screen and these slides with ScreenFlow or Camtasia or screencast-o-matic if you’re really on a budget ScreenFlow is probably the best one that I have used so far. But it is Mac only if you’re on a PC then if you can afford it go for Camtasia otherwise screencast-o-matic is a really good option for recording your slides so there you go I hope you found this useful hope that’s helped you to get everything you need to create your trip our products and. You know. what this is just one more way of creating products in this profit from your passion series I’ll give you three ways to create products. So you just choose the ways that resonate with you the way that you like doing it best and use that you can use the same method on all products or you can. You know. switch up a bit whatever you’re comfortable with there’s really no rules with this thing. You know. it all comes out to you and how comfortable you are with either being on camera or may can slides or writing out a whole bunch of text it’s entirely up to you so we’re going to leave it there thank you for watching if you found it useful hit the thumbs up button below. Because it tells me I need to create more content like this that’s my phone so I’m gonna leave it there thank you very much for watching subscribe to the channel hit the little notification bell and I’m gonna see you with another article tomorrow a great day.
hey everybody welcome to profit co-pilot my name is Mohini and this channel is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship. So if that sounds good hit the subscribe button and you’ll get more articles in this series so today we’re talking about creating an online course. So this is quite a milestone in the training series as. You know. we’re going through the profit from your passion training course I’m showing you how to monetize your website properly for the long term and of course that’s hard right it takes time and there’s a lot of hard work involved. So if you’re happy to do that then you will reap the rewards for years to come so today is all about making an online course. Now when it comes to making courses you don’t have to be an expert a lot of people fall down at the very first hurdle you just got to be a few steps ahead of you students and you got to show them the journey that you’ve been on and. You know. allow them to follow you that’s all you have to do and then the actual content of your online course so remember this framework that we had in one of the first articles where we have the escape from a problem and we take them through all the steps they need to take to arrive at a solution or we just go back to that product framework drill down into the next few things that we need to do and then we create an online course based around that and we have to make it how-to content so it’s got to be step by step and you’ve got to take your your customers on a journey from not knowing how to solve a problem all the steps they need to take in the order they need to take them to help them get results quicker than they can on their own that will become the basis the outline the structure for your online course. Now if you are really stuck for steps just have a look at you to me have a look at other courses that are on the market see what they’re doing look at their structure. You know. have a look on forums have to have a look at the frequently asked questions section have a look at blogs have a look at on Quora check reddit see what questions are being asked about your industry about your niche and what problems people have and then that can give you lots of ideas for your online course. Now when you’re actually making the course you can use PDF so just write out chapter after chapter if that’s your thing. You know. you don’t have to write 200 pages or anything like that the the actual course that you sell does have to have. You know. a lot of meaty content so we we don’t want to sell stuff that’s full of fluff and all that stuff we want to actually have valuable highly valuable content in there that actually helps your customers to solve a problem and you can deliver that through PDF or a collection of PDFs or if you want to make more money then use article I’m going to show you the the exact stuff that I use in my business if you want to use that as some kind of template and also no matter what format you are delivering the content in so be it PDF or article or mp3 you have to make sure that every single module covers one particular task so we don’t have a article with a bunch of different topics or tasks in there we break it down into smaller chunks and that is really so your customers can digest the information easily they can copy and replicate the information easily they’re not getting bogged down with loads of different ideas so we make it one article or one chapter per one task and then when it comes to pricing your online course at the low end we have around thirty dollars for a PDF right up to around five hundred dollars for article content so the pricing that you use will massively depend on the niche that you’re in the pricing structure of your competitors there’s a few variables in there and ultimately it’s the price that you are happy with I know that teachable encourage you to sell every course a minimum of $100 well you to me I think they they kind of suggest around 15 $20. So. It really depends on you and what you’re comfortable with so let’s get into the equipment that you might want to use so the first thing that we’re going to need if you’re gonna do article is well a camera. Now you can use something like a smartphone that’s more than acceptable. Now. You know. all these I’ve got HD output they’re all fine if you want to go a bit fancier then I can recommend something like this this is the Logitech c920 it’s an amazing webcam I don’t use it anymore. Because I’m using the DSLR. But I made a bunch of courses with this and it served me really well a few years ago and it’s still probably the best HD webcam on the market in my opinion you’ve also got things like your flip they’re still really usable and good. So you might have one of them lying around put it to good use we’ve also got the DSLR which I’m using at the moment I am using a canon 700d I just can’t remember what the camera is and it’s a good entry-level DSLR so there’s your cameras you’re gonna need a good microphone and if you’re gonna invest in anything in your business. You know. once you’ve got the holstein and you’ve got your domain name and you’ve got your autoresponder the next thing that you really should invest in is a microphone a very good microphone resist the urge to buy those cheap no brand microphones I spent years buying them and they just break and the recording quality is so poor just invest your money in something decent so one option is something like that it’s just the lapel mic it will just clip on to your shirt and then you plug it into your camera or into the computer and you’re ready to go this one is an audio technica very good brand again stay away from the cheaper ones of course we’ve got the blue Yeti which let me lift it up for you so these are very popular microphones sorry about the noise so that’s why I use when I’m on the computer we’ve also got something like the zoom h4n very good microphone this might be overkill some of you needs and then we’ve also got something like the rode articlemic pro I can recommend that one all these microphones I’m showing you at the moment are the ones that I would suggest you invest you only need one. But if you’re gonna buy a microphone buy one of these and then if you’re using article we’re gonna have to have some lighting so typically you would get these big soft boxes you don’t actually have to have one of those. But if you were if you are considering lighting think about the position of the lights. So I like to have three-point lighting so above here I’ve got a softbox on a boom type thing I’ve got some lights to the side of me that’s called three-point lighting. So it gives the the definition around my my outline. So I don’t blend into the background let me show you so that’s without the hairline so as you can see it’s not too great. I mean there you go you can see how how the lighten has a real impact on the quality of your article. But you don’t have to have that set up. So you don’t need the soft boxes you can actually just use one of these these are little LED lights they are very powerful they’re a good option if you’re short on space or short on budget so there you go the brand really doesn’t matter when it comes to lighting I don’t think I’ve just used some really cheap soft boxes and they have lasted years and years LED lights will last a very long time and I don’t think the brand matters too much them oh there might be some debate about that I don’t really know. But they will eat through your batteries really fast so that’s something to consider so there you go I’ve given you the way that I create my courses anyway the process that I go through with creating the outline and. You know. the steps that I take to create it obviously I do more article than anything. Because it’s more valuable I can sell that a higher price and it’s quicker for me to to make as well. I mean remember in a previous article we made the lead magnet where you just recorded yourself talking for twenty minutes and then we had it transcribed and edited. But you can do that again with your online courses what I’m doing in this process is giving you multiple options and you will just decide whichever one works for you. So you don’t have to use article you can just go back and repeat the same process that we went through through the lead magnet and then tomorrow maybe on a future article I’m going to show you how to create trip wires using another method so you’re gonna have three ways to create courses and products through this profit from your passion training course there you go. So I hope you found this useful if you have then hit the thumbs up button below.

hey everybody welcome to profit copilot my name is Mohini and this channel is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship. So if that sounds good hit the subscribe button and we are flying through a series called profit from your passion I’ve created a brand new training course for free and it’s going to show you how to monetize your website or your blog properly. Okay, for the long term that brings us to the topic of autoresponders I’m going to talk about – and these are the two that I recommend depending on your needs they are active campaign which I am currently using and then where we also have Aweber which I’ve used for a long time that was my go to auto responder for many many years. But I’m gonna talk you through the pros and cons of each one. So you can decide for yourself which one you should you should go with. Now do you need and also responder do you have to have that monthly out way. I would say you don’t have to have it. But if you want to make your life really easy and just have this power of your website running on autopilot or as near to autopilot as we can get it then it will function like a machine and that is the auto responders sole function is is to make sure that you don’t have to manually email the lead magnet to everybody who subscribes to email this listen I’ve done it both ways way back in 2009 I think it was I had a lead magnet hole teaching people the basics of SEO I built an email list and I was manually adding people to an excel file and then manually emailing everybody who subscribed and I’m one day there was like 50 people subscribed all at once. Because the things that I gained a bit of traction oh I I just couldn’t cope. So. I would say definitely invest in an autoresponder it’s one of the three things that you you will absolutely be thankful for investing you had earned money in two so the two that I would recommend is active campaign and Aweber so active campaign is great if you are doing value based campaigns. So if you’re creating content on a regular basis and you’re not worried so much about the affiliate marketing side of things active campaign is the one to go for there is a slight learning curve involved it’s slightly more expensive than a weber. But it has awesome behavioral dynamic response and we will get into that stuff layer dynamic response is absolutely the future of email marketing you cannot ignore this any longer if you want to stay competitive you need to embrace dynamic response and active campaign also has awesome automations. So this is it actually it’s actually a part of the dynamic response thing for the purpose of this training I’m using active campaign the whole way through. But you might not want to go that road and that’s fine too so the other autoresponder we’ve got is Aweber and this is really good if you are promoting affiliate offers. So if your not so much on the value side of things if you’re more about just pitching offers to email list Aweber is the one to go for it’s easy to use. But there is little behavioral dynamic response on the platform and I think that’s a crying shame it’s actually why I left a Weber is. Because they don’t have that and they don’t have that many automations and the automations that they do have is very buggy and I have big problems with it so that’s the main difference between a weber and activecampaign you will decide which one is right for you and your needs so. Because I’m using activecampaign I’m going to show you how to sell and automation in activecampaign so here we are in the dashboard we’ve gone to automations we’re going to click new automation I’m going to hit from scratch so here we’ve got some options we can trigger the automation when someone subscribes. But I’m not going to do that what I’m going to do is add a tag so when someone is is tagged it will trigger the automation and that is. Because we’re going to have one email list button multiple avenues into the list and those avenues will be the tags I apologize if you can hear that noise we’ve still got work going on from the flood in the underground carpark a few weeks ago we still got workmen repairing the apartment building so I’m using tags as avenues into the email list so remember on the squeeze page up we sell added a tag and that was detox PDF I think that’s what we added so that’s the tag that we’re going to use. So I hit tag hit continue make sure that it runs once that’s that so what happens when someone subscribes to this email list with the tag that we’ve hadded gonna send an email train email and this is gonna be welcome email detox PDF so here we can choose the design I’m gonna make sure that it comes out its natural weekly I’m gonna have Mick so here we want to have some personalization first name hit save. Okay, and then here’s your free the good if it’s spelt free detox report hit continue with your emails if you can make them look as natural as possible so avoid the corporate looking thing and make them look just like you were emailing a friend so we don’t want anything too fancy in there so first name so hey here’s your free blue talks poor I don’t remember the page that we created with the the OTO at the end the one-time offer we paste that link in there PS we might want to tell what to expect from the email I saw a few days Oh check in with you began to see how then we hit next. Now the copy that I’ve used in this email isn’t too great. But I just want to run through the process with you later on we can get into the email stuff if you want we can go through some awesome copy injecting high tension and drama into the email sequence to get them hooked and that kind of thing. But today is all about just the mechanics really of getting you up and running fast so there we go and that will trigger every time someone subscribes to the email list using that tagging and I’ll call it a day there. Because can get into the behavioral response side of things in another article. But I think I’ve gives you giving you a fair bit to think about in this and I want to call it a day. So you can just get cracking and get up and running with your very first welcome email. Okay, thank you for watching if you found this useful hit the thumbs up button below. Because it tells me I need to create more content like this and don’t forget to subscribe to the channel hit the little notification bell and you will get another article like this from me tomorrow and that will help you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship so thank you for watching watching have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
everybody welcome to profit co-pilot my name is make it meanie and this channel is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship. So if that sounds good hit the subscribe button and you get another article like this tomorrow so today we’re talking about squeeze pages you might know them also as landing pages and these allow people to subscribe to email lists in exchange for a lead magnet which we created yesterday. Now I am going to use software called thrive architect. But listen you don’t need to invest in any software to do this do. You know. what you can sell pan online business and make money from it practically for free using free methods in using free tools that is an option for you if you want to go down that road of course if you invest in professionally designed software and platforms then you will get to where you want to go quicker. But you don’t have to invest that much obviously. I would say get a real domain name so you’re. You know. proper domain name professional domain name it doesn’t matter if it’s a.com or even a dot info if you want it doesn’t matter invest in in proper hosting that I think that’s essential and in an email list builder so something like activecampaign or a weber for the purpose of speed and simplicity I am using thrive architect we’ve got lots of options when it comes to squeeze pages I like to have control over everything in my business and that’s why I recommend using thrive themes if you’re absolutely lazy and you just want someone to do it for you which is another option we have and why not then I can recommend commerce warriors and they will build a funnel system for you and do all this for you and I think it’s somewhere between $99 and 300 dollars a month for that back and certainly recommend those guys if you really don’t want to invest anything at the moment just head over to wordpress.org type in the plugins landing page or squeeze page and there you’re going to get tons for free. Okay, so just go through find one that suits your needs save yourself a few quid if you want to so I’m using thrive themes and thrive architect. Because that is what works best for me at the moment that might change tomorrow who knows so in WordPress we’re going to go to the pages section we’re gonna hit add new then we need to give this a title so free ebook for detox and it would thrive architect and then here if we go to this little cog we can choose let me find it choose a landing page template and we’ve got loads to choose from here ready-made ones for us now. Because I’m using an e-book I don’t need to show article so let me just have a look through some of these let’s go for a really simple let’s choose that one I’m not going to mess around with this too much apart from I’m not too keen on the pink background so I’m gonna get rid of that get rid of the image I’m just going to keep it white keep it very simple for. Now so the components that we really need on a squeeze page and it doesn’t matter what system you are using. But the components are always going to be the same so we will either need some kind of visual reference to the to the lead magnet so we can use a article. I think that produces the best results in my experience anyway or we need a digital version of a product of a book so here I’m going to change image I’m gonna get one that I’ve already got made so hit that and then you can see the some kind of visual reference. Now one of the most important things on a squeeze page is the headline so we need to make. It really bold promise so feel great look great seven days the next some days complete good to detox we might also want to say that it’s free so maybe – free really make free bit stand out. Now we can get a bit wordy if we want to. But I found that just having a few bullet points conveys the message really clearly. Because people don’t read big chunks of text on squeeze pages there were watch a article and all that stuff. But really they just want to know what you can do for them very quickly so they can make a decision do they want it or not so let’s drag in some bullet points let’s scroll down to style list drag this into thrive what do we want to put it. I would say underneath the. Yeah, that’ll do so we’ll put benefit one then two three and just like your headline we’re gonna have benefits here so on the page there’s going to be at least four benefits. In fact, in the headline we have got three maybe four benefits maybe five if we include the fact that it’s free so feel great which is a benefit look great which is another benefit in the next seven days that’s a benefit with the complete guide to detox another benefit and it’s a hundred percent free which is another benefit so as you can see what we’re doing on the squeeze page is loading up the benefits and that’s the secret to a really effective squeeze page one that converts really well is just stack up the benefits and then here we have the opt-in form and we can connect that to a service here I’m going to connect it to active campaign connect it to my website I’m going to give it a tag t-top a detox PDF continue then we set these as required. Now the redirect URL this is really important for you. Okay, I want you to paste in your website address here so it’s going to be that’s the website I’m using for this demo. So I would call it detox OTO and the OTO stands for a one-time offer and this will become clear as we go into this process so I’m going to take a note of the name of the page so detox OTO and then I’m going to hit save on thrive. Now we go back to the pages bit in WordPress add new and here I want you to paste in detox OTO or whatever you call in the page and then we hit save draft. Now here we add media we can go to upload files and here we drag in the PDF document and set it as a link to download and the reason that we have called this an OTO one-time offer is. Because at some point in the very near future we’re going to put an offer on this page for our customers or potential customers so I’m gonna leave it there. Because I’ve given you an awful lot of information a lot to do today so get cracking set up your squeeze page upload your lead magnet to WordPress set the links make sure that everything is connected properly so when someone subscribes to your list that we’re redirected to the right page make sure that page has got download link to your PDF I’ll leave it there hope you found this useful if you have then hit the like button below.

So if you have a blog that you’re passionate about or you’re creating content in some way that is how centric I’m going to show you how to monetize that. So you can in time do this as a full-time living so the next thing that I need to show you how to do is create a lead magnet. Now lead magnets are very important for our business they really assist in the list building process so what we need to do is start collecting email addresses and they have to be from people who are actively engaged in what we’re doing they have to be from people who want to obtain more information so we are not going around just collecting random email addresses we’re certainly not buying email addresses we’re not buying lists or anything like that I’ve seen a lot of people attempt to do that and just waste their money. Because think about hey. You know. you’re emailing cold leads who don’t know who you are your email is just going to go to the junk folder so don’t buy these email databases instead collect your own leads it’s a longer process. But it’s a more rewarding one it’s more profitable for you in the long run so what we have to do is create an ethical bribe something of high value something very desirable to your audience and we offer that to them for free in exchange for the email address and once we obtain the email address then we carry out a follow up sequence which I’ll get to in a future article. But that’s where the real if it comes in with digital marketing we always profit on the back end it’s not through trying to make a sale up front so the to get us to the follow up process we need the lead magnet something that your audience absolutely wants and that is going to help them to solve a problem so let me run you through the rules of creating an awesome lead magnet that your audience will want to get it must be highly desirable it must make a promise it must provide outstanding value to them it must be easy to obtain and it must deliver on the promises that it makes all good stuff there right so when you follow this and your lead magnet has all those things you are contributing something incredibly positive to your marketplace so how do we make these lead magnets well it’s a really quick and easy process. Now you’re going to have to trust me here. Okay, you’re gonna have to just follow the process and have faith that I am taking you on a good journey and the end result is going to be where you want to be. Okay, so you’re gonna have to trust me with this just go with it so what I want you to do. Now immediately after this article ends I want you to grab your phone or grab a microphone and talk about your topic for about twenty or thirty minutes. Okay, let me go into a bit more detail with you so remember yesterday we have the escape and arrival framework these are all the steps that they need to take to solve a problem well what we are going to do is we’re going to take one of these sections in this case detox and we are going to talk about detox for about 20 or 30 minutes while recording our voice don’t worry nobody is going to hear it it’s not gonna go on the internet we’re not gonna publish the audio recorded for a start it’s gonna be full of mistakes you’re gonna make lots of umm and that’s. Okay, okay he hate to be in my articles too sometimes. But which you have to start doing is creating assets and when you create this lead magnet it will become a very valuable asset to business so what I want you to do is talk for 20 or 30 minutes just about one of these steps in the outline that we made yesterday and then take that recording find someone on Fiverr I’ll probably put some links beneath this article somewhere eventually so click on one of those links find someone on Fiverr that can transcribe their recording for you they’re not gonna share it with anyone they’re not going to publish it on the internet. But what they are going to do is create a written transcript for you and then they’re gonna send it back to you the next thing I want you to do is immediately take that text document and just eat email it to an editor find an editor on Fiverr and they will make it conversational ask them to make it readable and ask them to make it look more professional and prettier up a little bit maybe put in headings and that kind of thing for you and then when you have that text document back you. Now have a lead magnet and this is going to be a perfect transcription of your audio recording and it’s not going to have any of the mistakes in there it’s gonna be readable conversational and it’s gonna deliver a map some value to your audience and that’s your homework for today so spend the next half an hour talking about one of the steps that we went through yesterday when you created your product framework that’s it it’s simple stuff. Okay, I’ll leave it there for today thank you for watching if you found this useful then hit the thumbs up button. Because it tells me to carry on creating this kind of content for you and subscribe to the channel hit the little bell notification and you’ll get another article from me like this tomorrow and that is going to help you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship so thank you very much for watching I hope you have a fantastic day and I will see you tomorrow with the next chapter in this series.
hey everybody welcome to profit copilot my name is Mohini and this channel is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through your website through online commerce and entrepreneurship and all that good stuff and today I’m afraid I’ve still got the dreaded man flu I’m battling on I’m trying to get through this training course for you. So I can help you to get up and running as quickly as possible and. Now we are into the final stages of what we need to do to launch our first profitable online business. So I will battle through this ok so here we are in active campaign today I’m going to show you some advanced behavioral dynamic response type stuff so the first thing that we’re going to do is you’re going to create a second email list and this time you’re gonna call it customers so previously we had your first email list which was for freebie seekers for people who will just opt-in to you lead magnet well today we are making one specifically for customers and you create new automation and the trigger that we’re gonna run is when a contact subscribes to the list to your customers list we’re going to trigger this so we will make sure that they unsubscribe from your freebie list so we hit that we got contacts and unsubscribe from lists choose the list that you want to unsubscribe them from and then you’re good to go and what this does is it allows you to treat the people who are on your lead magnet list in a different way to the people who are customers this is. Because when someone becomes your customer they are supporting your business. So you support them a bit more you give them more stuff you help them out modern than the people who are on your freebie list so that’s why we do it and we can also run new campaigns for the customers that the freebie seekers aren’t aware of so to make this work properly what you would do is in jvzoo or which whichever platform you’re using to sell your product through there will be a setting for autoresponders go into there and select the list that you’ve just created the customer list having automatically subscribe to that. Now if you’re using jvzoo jvz you do not have direct active campaign integration we need to do that through zapier and it’s it’s a very simple process so just sign up does appear it’s free and then you’ll be able to connect jvzoo to active campaign so let’s get down to the automations this is really cool so remember we made this automation a few days ago when someone subscribes to your freebie lists with the tag detox PDF they’re automatically added to this automation and a welcome sequence will trigger if they will receive an email with the PDF or link to the PDF it’s actually have a look it’s actually to the one-time offer page and that gives us another opportunity to sell the tripwire product that we made a few days ago this is what I really want to show you its behavioral response so what we can do is if someone doesn’t open that email we can make sure that it’s sent again and again however many times we like until they open it I wouldn’t recommend going that full on. But it’s certainly something to think about so what we want to do is if they don’t open the email let’s click this conditions and workflow wait for a specific period of time let’s say one or two days say one day so let’s add an action let’s see if else want to go to actions has opened click okay. So if the subscriber has opened the welcome email then we can trigger more emails so we can send a new email day to email and you can fill that in later on with either a story or some type of high value content that speaks directly to them and you might want to put in an affiliate offer or something like that. But if you use an active campaign don’t overdo it with the affiliate offers really use the email list to build a good relationship with with your subscribers here we can add more emails we can run them through a four-day sequence so well however many emails you’d like to send on consecutive days remember to put that the the wait time in so you’ll just repeat that many times as you like. But what happens if they don’t read the email so what we might want to do is it this stage sand another email with with a really strong headline something different than the previous one something else that might grab their attention and then if they don’t open it you can wait for a period of time waited day or so then you can add them to your nurture sequence or your another promotional sequence if you want to one really shown you here is the mechanics of behavioral response the actual campaigns and stuff. You know. there’s hundreds of different types of campaigns and actually active campaign itself has got campaigns that you can just take copy and paste the pre-made fear let me show you one of the campaigns. So this is one of the campaigns it’s a ready-made campaign by active campaign that I’ve just started using. But that is one way to do it the great thing with active campaign is there’s multiple ways to achieve the same thing so there you go I hope you’ve enjoyed this series I hope you found it useful hope you. Now have everything you need to get up and running with your first online business you’ve got the technology under control you’ve seen how easy that is you’ve got the strategies that I’ve given you you’ve seen how easy they’re the only thing that I think might hold you back is yourself your own mindset and that has been in my experience the number one factor whether someone succeeds or whether they fail it’s themselves. So if you are in need of motivation at any point in the future think about people like me and other people who who are self-employed they work from home running a website that they’re completely passionate about and that’s the real ingredient I think have a good mindset and be passionate and have the determination the dedication to stick it through there’s millions of us all over the world growing websites are making a very comfortable income from the internet and there’s nothing to stop you from achieving the same if you want it so remember that we all experience self-doubt at times we all wonder if we’re on the right track and this thing is not going to happen for you overnight. Okay, you’re not going to wake up tomorrow morning with 50k in your bank account it doesn’t work like that it takes years of hard work to get to the point where you can launch a product and you have 70 grand in you in your bank account that point takes a long time to get to the important things to really focus on the little victories along the way those small victories that eventually compound and build up to a big level of success. You know. I remember one of my websites the one that I had the TV show for rent I remember when that was getting thirty visitors a day I was up there I was on cloud nine. Because thirty people a day was visiting my website I was thankful for the small all victories then when I hit thousand visitors a day I couldn’t believe it I was just blown away by it and then when the. You know. if those figures just kept climbing and climbing. But it took a lot of work it took persistence. You know. I’m not saying you have to do this. But I didn’t take it a single day off for about three years and the only time I took a day off was. Because I was rushed to hospital and I had to have surgery and that’s why I took it to help the hut business. But you don’t have to do anything close to that you just have to be persistent there were a little bit every day. You know. keep chipping away and is like keep chipping away and over time you’ll notice how far you’ve come. You know. the big woosh moments that you get when you reach your first hundred dollars a day or you reach your first thousand dollars a day those are far and few between they’re rare. But when they happen and they will happen if you have the determination and the dedication to persist they will happen and when they do it will give you the momentum that you need to go even further it will tell you that this thing works is possible for you too so be thankful for the small victories use that momentum to push you forward to to you $200 a day to you five hundred to a thousand dollars a day use that momentum use that as encouragement a positive sign that this stuff is working and remember that about 95 percent of the people who try give up. Because they don’t get the resource that they want early or not remember that don’t fall into the 95 percent keep at it keep going it might take you two years it might take you three years keep going you will have small victories along the way and use them as an indication that it is working. Because there is no other way that I know of on this planet to make such a comfortable living such an abundance of freedom and security and independence as running your own website based on the things that you feel strongly about the things that matter to you. You know. after a point the money doesn’t really matter it all becomes about your mission and that’s when you will know you have success when it stops being about the money it becomes about something much greater for me it’s about helping other people to achieve independence and freedom too it’s always been about that so I’m gonna leave it there for. Now I hope you’ve enjoyed this series I hope you found it so useful beneficial I hope you use it to improve your lives for yourself and your family there is nothing holding you back nothing can stop you.

hey everybody welcome to profit copilot my name is May Kamini and today I’m feeling really terrible I’ve got the dreaded man flu and I know that you really want to carry on with the profit from your passion training course so no days off for me I’m going to continue teaching you everything that you need to do so today is all about affiliate marketing I’m going to show you how you can attract affiliates who will promote your products for you and in return for that promotion they will earn a commission on every sale. Because when you get the right affiliates on board in my experience you can make five figures per day so I’m gonna run you through that. Now it’s a very lucrative business model if you’re on a ramp up quickly online you need affiliates to promote your stuff I think long term it’s probably not a great strategy. But certainly to give you that initial cash injection into your business it’s a fantastic model. Because you can make a thousand dollars a day ten thousand dollars a day fifty seventy who knows typically we would offer between 50% and 75% per sale. Now if you think that sounds like a lot you’re right it is a lot we do give away a lot per sale. But we don’t have to really worry about the the marketing side of things when we are on this side of affiliate marketing as opposed to the other side. You know. what we actually do both. You know. for best results do both sell products and run affiliate offers of your own so I’m going to give you some do’s and don’ts to help you attract more affiliates and higher quality affiliates too so the first thing is do fill a gap fill a need find out what your potential affiliate partners are promoting find out what they’re not promoting find out what they need and then if your product fills a gap if it matches in need in their business they will be more inclined to promote you also if. You know. your earnings per click let them know it. Okay, well if you’re getting into this for the very first time you might not have an EPC so that’s. Okay, don’t let that deter you when you do have your EPC let future affiliates know what that is that’s earnings per click. So it tells them how much revenue they should expect to make for every visitor they send to your sales page it’s very good way of enticing high-level affiliates to promote your stuff also do let affiliates try out the product first don’t just tell them that you’ve got this awesome product you have to give them access to it offer a copy they will decide if it’s right for their list or not make sure that you’ve got the commission percentage somewhere in the email you send or the Facebook message that you send make sure they know how much you charging per sale let them know of any upsells that they can also profit on and also be a real person don’t use avatars or cartoon things to try and hide your identity be real. You know. if you have track record success of running a business or a website let them know about it let them know that you are a real person you’re not one of these anonymous people that hides behind an avatar with a fake name and all that stuff people don’t like working with people who do that generally also if you can offer them a special bonus it’s unique to them and their list. Okay, so. Now some don’ts don’t lead with your commission okay. Yeah, no it’s tempting to say I’m gonna offer you 75 percent per sale. But guess what everyone’s doing that ok it’s not a big deal if you come to us with a big percentage a big Commission percentage we’re not wowed by that obviously you have to have that information in the email or the message somewhere. But don’t lead with it. Because that’s an immediate turnoff also don’t be smiling don’t kiss us too much obviously a little bit of flattery will go a long way. But too much again is another turnoff it feels manipulative your candor feels fake and generally we avoid working with people who are fake right so be real big or thent ik be consistent throughout your you’re dealing with everybody in your business also don’t be rude or egotistical. So you might feel that your product is the best one on the map that has ever been around. But most product vendors feel the same way too so don’t be rude about it don’t be egotistical don’t insist that they promote you and also don’t expect to reply good quality affiliates are bombarded with offers every single day and there’s only a very small percentage that they can say yes to so don’t be put off don’t be deterred if you don’t get reply it just means that it wasn’t the right product for that list don’t take it personally just knuckle down move on to the next don’t take it to heart. Because there is going to be plenty of affiliates out there who need to promote a product like yours ok. So I hope you found this useful put it to good use make more money as a result. You know. you can get that 4 figure income add a 5 figure income using this exact process that I’ve given you today so use it to promote yourself promote your products recruit affiliates make money. Because you can do it to the only person holding you back is you right so there’s nothing to stop you just go ahead recruit filius get your products out there start making some serious cash ok thank you for watching I hope you found this useful if you have hit the thumbs up button below subscribe to the channel hit the little notification bell and you will get another article from me tomorrow even if I am still dying with man flu I’ll see you then have a good day.
hey everybody welcome to profit copilot my name is Mick meanie and this is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship. So if you’re not subscribed at the moment click the subscribe button hit the loan application Bell if you’re watching on YouTube and then you will get the next article in this series tomorrow. So I have been thinking long and hard about how I can deliver the best value to you through these articles so what I have decided to do is I’m going to create a brand new website I’m going to monetize it and make it a success and I’m going to document the process I’m going to show you how you can do it too I’m gonna do it step-by-step. So you can follow along you can point and click your mouse where I point and click mine and then every day we will slowly build a successful business together. Because you’re going to see me do it from scratch and I’m going to show you how you can do it too. So you have probably not seen anything like this before. Because I have condensed them boiled down all the stuff that you need to know and I have taken out all the stuff you don’t need to know so I’m gonna run you through the entire process in this article to see if this is the right thing for you. Because listen everyone out there is promising you overnight millions and saying that you’re gonna make tens of thousands in your first couple of months it’s not true. Okay, that there are people out there who prey on people’s lack of knowledge in this thing and I really want to stand apart from those guys and separate myself and I figured that if I show you how to build a business that you’re passionate about based on interests that you already have I figure that is such a positive contribution to the world and to my market here it is every that’s involved. Okay, and I know it looks like an awful lot of stuff. But when we break it down step by step it’s actually a fairly simple process so the first thing that we need to do is decide what we’re going to sell. Okay, and I know that it might seem like you jumping in at the deep end. But we’re not actually going to make anything yet we’re just going to have a rough idea of what we want to make. So this comes down to your passions okay. So I know that there’s a lot of talk about finding the right niche and all that stuff. But here’s what here’s what you do if if you are in the right niche just go to Amazon whatever topic you’re thinking about starting in just go to Amazon see if there’s books and magazines about that topic if there’s already information products out there then fantastic you’re good to go. Okay, this is not complicated stuff and whatever you’re passionate about that is your niche and the best way of really finding out if you stuck you’re not sure what your niche is what is it the spend your time thinking about when you’re with friends and family what do you like to steer the conversation towards what topic is it that you you really feel that the world would be a better place if more people did X Y Z that is the thing that you should build a website about and chances are if you’re watching this you already have a website a blog set up about that or you’re creating content in that niche anyway. So this series is just for people who’ve already got that sorted out they already know what they want to contribute to the world. So this isn’t about niche research any of that stuff I have other articles about that if you need to go to the YouTube channel or profit copilot com have a look through you’ll get those the first thing that we need to do is outline have a rough idea of what you’re going to sell it’s going to be a digital information product. So it could be a PDF or article series or an audio series doesn’t matter right. Now all you need to do is have a rough idea of the content of that and I’ll get into this into in the next article or you through how to do that then once we have an idea of what we’re going to sell we’re going to create a blog post based on that content then we’re going to create a lead magnet something that will entice people to join your email list we’re going to create a squeeze page for that then we’re going to build the email list and this is the start of a sales funnel and I’ll show you how to build sales funnels and marketing funnels in this series then once we are building an email list we need to test affiliate offers and this is to give us an idea of what is working in the niche what kind of things people are responding positively to and that will give us an idea of how to position a market the product that we intend to create then we need to create the product and I’m going to show you how to do really quickly really simply it’s and it’s not going to take you weeks to do. Okay, we’re going to make it maximum in a few days and then we’re going to create the sales page there’s so much information I’ve got a few about writing sales copy and persuasion techniques all that stuff that’s so passionate about that area and then we’re going to recruit affiliates to promote the product for us they’re going to become like a virtual sales army who will go out and bring money into our business and then we’re going to get advertising for long term growth so there’s a lot of ground to cover I know that by the end of the series you will have a awesome profitable business and you and. You know. what it’s not going to cost you anything from me I’m going to give you the information for free. Okay, and that’s. Because I really want to deliver the maximum value that I can to you.

today I’m going to give you the blueprint you can use to fix your affiliate marketing problems increase your opt-in rate and virtually print money on demand after this welcome back to profit copilot calm my name is Mick Meany and this is all about helping you to get better results online so today I’m going to give you an affiliate marketing framework that you can use to virtually print money on demand and this structure that I’m about to give you I have heard people achieving a conversion rate of 80% me personally I have never achieved more than 76% but. Because we’re all different and we have different ways of doing things and approaching things and different levels of determination there is a high probability that you will surpass by 76% and if you do please let me know. Because I would love to use you as a case study so let’s get down into this so a very common problem that people experience when they start affiliate marketing is they will use ready-made squeeze pages and landing pages they will take an off-the-shelf version of the affiliate system that they have been sold and they will upload that to the Internet plug it in and expect that to make money for them on autopilot it doesn’t work that way. But I’m going to show you a way that does work so we’re going to use a digital whiteboard for this if you’re listening on the podcast don’t worry I’m going to describe what is happening. So you won’t miss out. So it usually starts like this you will be sold a generic landing page from an affiliate marketer so we’ll call this a landing page and that is where people will opt in to the company’s email list so the affiliate company that you’re dealing with will recommend that you funnel traffic from a variety of sources into their email list so visitors land on the landing page they opt-in to the email list and then they’re sent to a sales page where they can buy the product. But what happens is. Because the landing page that they’ve sold you is generic and there are literally thousands of other affiliate marketers using the exact same landing page the traffic sources the places where you advertise and promote your offer well they’re all seeing the same offer. Because you have so many affiliates promoting the same thing so what happens is when a landing page should be receiving a twenty five percent conversion rate what’s actually happening is it drops down to ten percent down to a five percent conversion rate and that kills your profit so the lesson here is if you are buying for example a pl or product or an affiliate product and you have a ready-made template that you can just plug in to the internet and send traffic to stop you will not see major success if any level of success with that strategy. Because although that landing page might look brand new to you in the niche that you’re promoting it in loads of people have already seen it and they have either opted into it or they have ignored it and they’ve refused to opt-in so the pool of people that you can expect to do business with the to buy from you is shrinking continuously shrinking. Because more affiliates promote the same offer using the exact same landing page so the solution is to change things up so make a brand new landing page maybe put article on there change the offer I’m actually going to tell you how to do that in a second and also instead of sending traffic to somebody else’s list you want to get your own list. So this is a list that you control instead of sending traffic to somebody else’s business and in leads into into their funnel make sure it leads are opting into a list that you control and what happens when you do this you can still promote the affiliate sales page and profit from that. But when you have your own list you have complete control and you can email any offer you like whenever you like. So you can email your list links to other sales pages other products and this effectively becomes free money it is virtually like printing your own money. So if you want me to talk more about this strategy that I’ve gone through in this article let me know I hope you found it useful if you have hit the like button below subscribe to the channel to have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you very soon take.

What is up. ladies and gentlemen welcome back to the good ol 10th crack house here. Now today as I stated earlier in the day I will. Now be running over my stash portfolio and no not with the car. But with with a quick article to give you some updates and just kind of let. You know. how it’s going so my acorns portfolio that I have allocated in a similar manner is actually set to aggressive. I would say that this stash portfolio is moderate to aggressive it’s leaning probably pretty moderate or moderately aggressive it’s probably not quite as aggressive as the acorns portfolio. But at the same time it’s still performing really pretty well overall. Now I just as with acorns I have an auto stash coming through for this portfolio. Now I was kind of forgetting to actually allocate my funds myself. So I set up the auto stash slightly differently. So. I actually have five dollars of American innovators being purchased per week and five dollars of intranet Titans being purchased per week so those are both automatics. Now I no longer have to go in and actually allocate funds myself so it’s going to make the portfolio performant the better. Because it’ll just be done automatically and I don’t have to worry about forgetting about it. So, you know. with that being said this portfolio is really performing pretty well so far, I started with $250 I believe that I’ve actually put about 30 bucks in so really the return so far, is probably around $25 this is skewed. Because this accounts for previous investments also with stash which I don’t really like that they still include that I wish that there’s a way. You know. that you could wipe that acorns actually clears that data after a certain period or after all of your money was is withdrawn after all of your money is withdrawn is when they clear it so that’s nice this doesn’t have that feature unfortunately. But we can still actually see that it’s doing quite well it’s 304 dollars of returns so far, so let’s look at the allocation really quick I have about a hundred bucks in American innovators this one is up for 0.75 percent so far, it’s doing really very well social media mania I have about 90 bucks in it’s up 5.70% so far, which is once again really quite good robots rising is up four point two four percent so far, and I have fifty five dollars in that when I believe which is not bad once again and then Internet Titans is up five point nine five percent and I have forty five dollars of equity in that one. So, you know. really they’re all doing very well and I’m very satisfied with this so far. Now I was ragging on stache a lot. But I think that. Now that I’ve seen how I can really allocate my money and really do do well with certain ETS on stash without really buying what they recommend or just. You know. going for what I think is best this could be profitable. Because. You know. stash they have a lot of strange gimmicky type names for their ETFs like American innovators social media mania I’m very much an analytical investor and I really like to look at what is performing well so hopefully my research into these ETS will help with the return overall we can always hope right we’ll see what exactly works out with this. But so far, stash is just barely outpacing acorns and that’s not what I expected. But it’s a friendly competition and stash is really doing pretty well so anyway folks if you like stash.

So you can receive a notification every single time the tech crack house uploads another article other than that folks let’s go ahead and get right into it as I stated earlier in my acorns a portfolio article in this article I’ll be covering my current stash kind of setup and the performance over the past 14 weeks. Now this article does very much coincide with my test with acorns and essentially I started with two hundred fifty dollars of capital in this portfolio and then each week I have added five dollars into American innovators and five dollars into social media mean no wait no no. Okay, okay god get out of here I’m already invested in that stash come on I have five dollars in internet items per week and five dollars in American innovators so those two are pretty steadily growing however the whole portfolio overall over the past 14 weeks has grown extremely well it’s done a fantastic job and I can honestly say that I’m very happy with the performance. Now I don’t think and I’ve said this a million times I don’t think that all this performance can necessarily be accredited to stash invest it is the platform that I used however you can buy all these ETFs on a platform such as Robin Hood or m1 finance and. You know. they’re all pretty basic you can see here that this is just the vgt ETF it’s pretty simple to buy into and honestly if you want to use a different investment program you definitely can stash invest has performed well. But it’s not necessarily stash pulling the weight if. You know. what I’m saying with that things look very straightforward my choices of investments here have done pretty well American innovators has grown decently internet tightness has also they’ve all performed pretty admirably and that’s why for the past 14 or 15 weeks per minute we’ve seen a growth of roughly 15% which is actually quite good that’s really pretty impressive fifteen percent over 14 weeks that’s roughly one percentage per week. Now of course that doesn’t scale like that and that’s just being applied proportionally which doesn’t really make any sense in terms of the mathematics here however that’s how I’m going to keep it. Because why not right so anyway like I said stash invest pretty satisfied this with this performance here if you average that over a year that’s roughly sixty percent for a whole year sixty percent return for a year is honestly extremely extremely good would I expect this to last throughout a whole year not necessarily. Okay, I’ve seen quite a few dips with this portfolio I’ve seen there are a couple of weeks where these before ETFs don’t perform as well and that’s totally to be expected. Okay, the market fluctuates you can’t always expect a proportional return so for me to say that I would expect sixty percent over the year is just flat-out wrong. Okay, you have to you have to really approach this with a degree of skepticism. You know. over being overly optimistic is good sometimes. But being analytical is still important so wouldn’t return sixty percent per year it’s possible. You know. is it likely it’s it’s it’s difficult to say if it’s likely or not interesting portfolio though I’ve had a lot of fun with it I had a lot of fun setting it up and I’m not going to stop using stash I am interested in continuing to do articles with stash. I think that this portfolio has been pretty reflective of the ability of the app to really do pretty decently if you do. You know. really guide your investments if you buy every ETF in stash that’s pretty stupid I wouldn’t recommend doing that at all it’s not gonna make you any money it’s like buying every ETF on Robin Hood or on m1 finance or something like that. You know. you want to go in and buy 200 ETFs. Okay, unless you’re doing some sort of test or some language. You know. it’s fine. But if you’re really trying to make money 200 ETFs really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense if you think about it and that’s something to keep in mind. Okay. So, you know. just bear that in mind stash smash the platform performed pretty well for this wasn’t necessarily all two stashes credit. But the platform did fine so let me know what else you want to see chocolate the acorns article that I uploaded earlier if you’re interested in that and. Yeah, that’s as always ladies and gentlemen thank you so much for watching your viewership is greatly appreciated if you have any questions feel free to leave them down the comment section below and other than that folks tell your tomatoes about is tell anything you want to bound us anyone and see you all next time in the next article and adios if you enjoyed this content from the tech crack house feel free to leave a like share subscribe if you wish to support us monthly feel free to check out our patreon page until next time ladies and gents see you all in the next article this has been Mike signing off.
What is up. ladies and gentlemen and welcome back to the guerrilla tech crack house in today’s article we’ll actually be covering the stash invest apps. So if you like stash invest feel free to leave a like share subscribe and hit that little Bell button below the notifications button. So you can receive a notification every single time the tech crack house uploads another article other than that folks let’s go ahead and get right into it right ladies and gents are just as with my acorns article previously and I upload previously today this article will focus largely on what you want me to do with my stash invest account next I will probably still be invested in the stash invest app. Because I think it’s a relatively good app overall it’s not exactly as freewheeling as I like it’s a bit more restricted insofar as you can only choose ETF’s to invest in which is as I said it’s kind of restricted so not exactly what I’m used to. But I do select the app and I think many of you like it too and you want to know how to maybe use it a bit better so there’s nothing wrong thing and that’s that’s pretty good and investing is always in my opinion a good idea. Okay, so right over the past 15 weeks I’ve had two hundred and fifteen dollars of upfront capital in this account 250 it sound like I said 15 of upfront capital in this account and then every week I’ve added in five dollars to American innovators and five dollars into social media mania. So this account has been growing pretty well over the long term over the past fifteen weeks and has returned fifty eight dollars and three cents which is a 14 percent growth rate. Now if you average that out for the year that’s roughly 56 percent or so which is honestly that’s pretty good. Okay, that’s that’s pretty satisfactory. Now unfortunately I don’t necessarily think that growth can’t continue at such an even rate and even since last week you can see that the growth has slowed down. So, you know. these stocks aren’t necessarily guaranteed to keep growing of course. I think that really goes without saying. But essentially what I want to do is maybe pick some different ETFs aside from these ones that I’m currently invested in and just kind of mess around with them. Okay, I did actually uh Wow. Okay, real estate tycoon great I’m not get out of here thank you I’m really interested in checking out some different ETFs so let’s go to discover investments really quick and as I said this is the performance over 15 weeks. So if you’re here for that that’s what that looks like. But I want to get into some more on speculation right so these are performed pretty admirably so let’s go to discover investments. Now essentially Stannis does cater your investment availability or your ETF availability to your risk exposure. So if you have a medium risk exposure will have different stock options than a high exposure type person I guess so that does factor into this anyway so we have combat carbon let’s click on that just to kind of check it out please get out of your stash good lord dividend yield. Okay, the ticker here is CR BN performance for this one for the year today is actually nineteen point five four percent many of these companies are focused on essentially cutting down on their carbon intake I know that Microsoft or Google not carbon take carbon output google has recently pretty much converted all to electrical power for most of their facilities which is pretty cool not exactly what I’m interested with that one too much although that one might be wanted to check out so I’ll go and flag that one defending America this one’s pretty popular right. Now I think for obvious reasons performance thirty one percent growth over the past year and/or year-to-date honestly that’s pretty good. Okay, that’s that’s pretty good. So this one it’s another one I might be interested in go. Now though add that one to the list partly raw earth I’m not super interested in that one water the world not really interested in that one to do the right thing let’s check out this one overview. Okay, a lot of big companies here s USA so we have 3m Microsoft it sense your Apple etc ecolab performance decent some weird dips here that can’t be right that’s going to be something strange um who owns that 4%. Okay, then address in that one so essentially I’m gonna go through and hunt for some more etf’s I do you think we’ll probably pretty good and I’ll let. You know. in the future in the near future what exactly I am looking into and let me know what you think let me know what you won’t want to see you for me and I would be more than happy to oblige you so. Yeah, as always ladies and gentlemen thank you so much for watching your viewership is greatly appreciated if you have any questions feel free to leave them down the comments section below and other than that folks tell your Tomatoes about is tell anything you want to bound us anyone and see you all next time in the next article and adios if you enjoyed this content from the tech crack house feel free to leave a like share subscribe if you wish to support us monthly feel free to check out our patreon page until next time ladies and gents see you all in the next article this has been Mike signing off.
What is up. ladies and gentlemen and welcome back to the guerrilla tech crack house in today’s article we’ll actually be covering the stash invest apps. So if you like stash invest feel free to leave a like share subscribe and hit that little Bell button below the notifications button. So you can receive a notification every single time the tech crack house uploads another article other than that folks let’s go ahead and get right into it. All right, homeys in home slices in this article I’ll be talking about my stash invest portfolio after roughly 13 weeks if you have any ideas on how to kind of. You know. 13 weeks it’s been a while I’ve been tracking these ok acorns and stash stash is pretty much definitively the winner in this contest where I start with $250 of capital in both portfolios and then each week I add 10 additional dollars stashes is the clear the clear-cut winner here the performance acorns just couldn’t match the performance of stash especially when I was able to really. You know. kind of allocate things exactly how I wanted in stash invest with that being said. I think that soon after week 13 or 14 I’ll probably be changing things up a little I might be trying different allocations for acorns and possibly for stash let me know what you want to see if there’s anything that you’re interested in in particular I would be more than happy to. You know. you know how did they say that oblige you right oblige you so anyway right stash invest the total returns so far, is 53 dollars and 21 cents that’s a 13.8 4% return over 13 weeks. Now in all honesty I don’t think that’s a whole lot different than it was last week and what I’ve seen a lot with this portfolio especially with how its set up is I’ve seen several spurts of shorter growth where I have some pretty definitive periods where the portfolio does pretty well on it it makes some it gains some significant ground and then I have periods where almost nothing happens with the portfolio so it’s kind of an off-and-on sort of deal and that’s pretty much what. I expected and a lot of the past articles I had stated. You know. I don’t think that I’ll see continued growth at this rate when I was talking about the growth of the portfolio and really I think I was pretty much right. Because the growth. Now of the portfolio itself is definitely slowing down that’s not to say I can’t pick up once again. But for the time being it definitely has declined a little bit in terms of rapid growth so it’s not bad it’s not necessarily a bad thing you expect fluctuation in the market you can’t always have fantastic growth and you can’t. You know. you typically don’t want to have a constant decline if you do there might be something wrong with your investment strategy. But. You know. so far, this is done pretty decently it’s it’s grown well it just slowing down a little bit. Now could pick back up again we’ll have to see in the future so honestly I might track this for about another week or so and then really I think that’s probably gonna be pretty much it and I’ll probably try to change things up a bit I choose more of an investment a different investment strategy which maybe was hand tailored more toward current events different things like that American innovators and Internet Titans social media robots rising these are all pretty relevant to current events and today’s. You know. sort of market. But they’re not necessarily. You know. the most up-to-date or the most cutting-edge ETF so could be interesting to try some different things let me know what you want to see it down in the comments section and. Yeah, as always ladies and gentlemen thank you so much for watching your viewership is greatly appreciated if you have any questions feel free to leave them down the comment section below and other than that folks tell your Tomatoes about is tell anything you want to bound us anyone and see you all next time in the next article and adios if you enjoyed this content from the tech crack house feel free to leave a like share subscribe if you wish to support us monthly feel free to check out our patreon page until next time ladies and gents see you all in the next article this has been Mike signing off.
What is up. ladies and gentlemen welcome back to the tech crank house so as I stated earlier today when I was covering my acorns article for the week. I actually did say that I’d be doing a stache update tonight and well here it is this is your stache update so get pumped. Because stache has been doing a fantastic job of growing pretty well over the past month. Now I do actually think that that’s really. Because I’ve been keeping my eye on it I’ve been guiding it I’ve been holding it soft little hand through its infancy and I’ve been trying to help my portfolio out. Because I don’t think I don’t. You know. I don’t want things to go south like they did want to experimenter with stache before. Because I thought before that you could just pick stash ETF that was a pretty stupid approach. Okay, and buying every ETF on stash is pretty stupid also alright that’s the worst thing you can do with stash. All right, I’m not kidding I really think that it’s best to pick a select number of ETFs on stash that perform well that have low expense ratios and that are just better overall. Because why would you pick ETF that suck alright I’ve done that to pass it does make any sense I’m done doing it alright so that’s my little rant. But anyway stash over the past month with my guidance and with a little bit of help I started with 250 bucks each week I have $10 Auto deposited and five of those dollars each week are deposited into American innovators and five are put into Internet Titans so those are growing reasonably quickly just from my auto stash as being put in. But at the same time the growth overall is really pretty good. Now and it says $27 of growth over the past month that’s not quite true. Because this is carrying over growth from my previous portfolios it’s actually about 22 bucks of growth for the past month which is insanely good alright if we’re looking at this here four weeks of Auto investments that’s roughly 40 bucks. Okay, $250 initial that’s roughly 290 initially invested that’s about $22 of growth over the past month so honestly. You know. is this bounce last not necessarily. But BZ test that I’ve selected are doing very well so far. You know. and people have been asking me. You know. if I put this much money into stash and then it grows that much each month I’ll have this much money right and it’s no that’s that’s not true that’s not guaranteed nothing with investments are guaranteed. I think that honestly so far, during this month I’ve been getting really lucky I’ve been really trying to really trying to manage the portfolio. But at the same time quite a bit of luck has been involved here. You know. the market doesn’t always perform this well and to be doing this well with my stash account I think that’s it that’s a great sign of luck and of market outcomes being kind of circumstantial. So you don’t know if you invest $300 in the stash you’re not going to get a guaranteed outcome of blank it just doesn’t work like that and nothing is guaranteed in the stock work in any way. So it looks like honestly so far, stash investors outperforming acorns and that’s not what. I expected at all. But I’m really thrilled about it so as I said I did really hand select the stocks in stash and it’s really been kind of grouped by me personally. So, you know. results may vary depending on whoever’s investing results will vary it’s pretty much guaranteed that there are no consistent results for everyone so anyway folks I just bumped my laptop apartment anyway thank you so much for watching I really hope you learned something if you want more updates follow the tech crackhouse twitter it’s listed in the description below and sticker up for more content folks and if you enjoyed this content from the tech crack house feel free to leave a like share subscribe if you wish to support us monthly feel free to check out our patreon page until next time ladies and gents you all in the next article this has been mike signing off.
