What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the good old tech crack house Thursday I hope you’re all having a good one I know that I am. Because today I’ve been working on my portfolio a little bit expanding it based on a couple of different things I think should help with performance and just kind of compounding upon it so I’m going to go ahead and go through and talk about everything that is currently in my portfolio it’s mainly based around like an ETF backbone of various ETFs that I think are worthwhile however they’re fairly different although they are high performance so they’re they’re performing pretty well overall which. I personally go for what I’m investing kind of differentiates my investment strategy from what. You know. stash invest provides primary stash get stash out of here this is not about stash this is about my portfolio it’s about seventy two hundred dollars and with the actual lab. You know. the growth and the dividends being paid out it’s an average growth of like 27 percent per year or something like that it’s pretty good overall maybe not 27 percent maybe 25 percent counting dividends okay. But it’s actually pretty decent so counting growth and dividends it’s like five bucks per day of growth. Now once again that’s growth. Okay, so that’s not. You know. I am relying on growth for this portfolio pretty much it’s not to dividend heavy of course the ETFs have dividends. But they are definitely not the sole focus of the portfolio. So I know that a couple of you want a portfolio update article or more of them. So I decided that I would go ahead and update you once again. So this is my portfolio as he concedes that about seventy seventy two hundred dollars. Now I did actually add nine hundred and today which Robin Hood recently has been having like a glitch where it actually shows that the $900 is like growth for the day that’s not. Okay, that’s not the case that’s really annoying I find that extremely annoying the Robin Hood does that you save that issue. But it would self correct quickly. Now it doesn’t like to do that as much so I’m going to go ahead and go through everything show you the equity holdings and just kind of just kind of. Yeah, just kind of talk about it. So it should be pretty interesting. So I thought about actually ordering these alphabetically I don’t believe that they are ordered alphabetically. So I apologize for that they’re not super organized. But it should still be. You know. pretty easy to understand so. Yeah, let’s go ahead and get right into it with uh any and you menu refers it is the USCF restaurant leaders fund. Okay, a bit of a mouthful. But a very good fund it actually tracks an index of restaurants interesting thing about this ETF is. You know. it doesn’t have much volume at all like most of the time which is kind of unsettling especially today it’s like been extremely inactive which I find weird I only have one share of it actually 17 dollars and cents per share that’s my equity. I actually had some money left over after buying some mainline ETF. So I want to add to the portfolio and I decided that it would be good to put it into actually I put some of it into a few penny stocks and the rest of it actually into menu. Because I think it’s a very interesting ETF it tracks some of the most successful. You know. restaurants that are actually available on the stock market today which is kind of cool. Because. You know. many of those are actually pretty expensive such as Chipotle and stuff like that so that’s menu. Okay, next we have ewo which is the vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets ETF I talked about this one my last article a little bit. Okay, about a thousand bucks of equity in it total return it is down a little bit. But to emerging market ETF so the volatility is a bit higher I’m. Okay, with that. Because. You know. with greater risk generally comes greater rewards especially with these emerging market ETF so Kay you can see the one-year performance on this one 19% growth that’s pretty good menu one your performance forgot to look at that 17% growth also really pretty good. Okay, so moving along here xt o ki shares exponential technologies etf right. Now to bad etf at all it definitely tracks more technologies than anything else obviously bigger tech companies 32 percent growth for the year practically 33 percent which is really good pretty impressive overall I really like the CTF a lot I think the growth potential is there I think it’s a good solid pretty solid investment honestly and that’s why I’m invested in it as you can see I have about a thousand bucks of equity and in XT there. Okay, so next we have vo og Vanguard S&P 500 growth ETF alright interestingly enough this one is one hundred twenty four dollars per share alright I have two thousand two hundred and forty three dollars of equity in this one I do think with this being an S&P 500 growth ETF it’s a good backbone of the portfolio hence why there’s a much higher allocation in this fund than there are then there is any other punt. You know. It really only makes sense so that’s V oog as you can see the 1-year growth here. Okay, 21 percent growth total return it is down a bit once again. Because it’s an S&P 500 market index growth fund a nice little dividend yield and that one too I got to say ve a here Vanguard MSCI ei fe etf. Okay, this is $41 per share as you can see I have 21 shares at a hundred and sixty one dollars of equity not too high I would like to buff this one a little bit however. I think that this one actually mainly tracks large cap small cap medium cap in European markets and not United States based markets which is cool. Because I did want a bit more exposure to those markets which i think is very worthwhile. Okay, so definitely. Something I would check out if you’re looking for exposure to markets that are us-based could be very interesting for you. Okay, when your growth on this one here 15% that’s actually pretty good also alright next vti. Okay, moving on to vti the Vanguard total stock market ETF I like this ETF a lot it does cover pretty much the entire market which is really interesting all sorts of facets and the ad sets and all sorts of cool stuff with this fun. You know. it’s really a pretty solid investment overall I have about a thousand bucks of equity in that one growth over the past years eighteen percent that’s pretty good. Okay, eighteen percent I really can’t ask for. You know. a whole lot more than that. But. Yeah, next last. But not least we have VB which is the Vanguard small cap EGF I did adds more small cat based oxen here. Because I’m really looking for growth especially. You know. aggressive too speculative growth even which is always a good thing so. Yeah, that’s one year there I’m going to run through the penstocks in another article actually. Because I’m kind of treating that as a separate portfolio to the one that I’m actually running currently in terms of the larger ETF so those are the larger ETFs and the funds that kind of make up the whole backbone of my portfolio just thought I would show to you again once again it’s about seventy two hundred dollars so really pretty reasonable in terms of overall investment. You know. I’m definitely going to put it above ten thousand soon and probably ten ten to twelve thousand or so is what I’m going to go for so we’re going to see how that goes should be pretty interesting stick around for more content folks thank you so much for watching I really appreciate it have a fantastic day and on you.
what’s up ladies and gents welcome back to the tech crack house here today. So I know I’ve been making a lot of articles lately basically uh talking about my portfolio and all that stuff and I know my portfolio is kind of expensive. But I want to keep all of you updated on to just give you ideas in different ETFs to maybe invest in different things to look at things to consider and just kind of explain myself. Because I feel like I want to explain my investment strategy a little bit to you and. You know. it’s it’s interesting right so anyway folks basically today I’m going to be talking about how my portfolio basically earns around 20 bucks a month in dividends. Now my dividends aren’t actually paid out monthly with this portfolio. But I have them straddled in such a way where basically uh. You know. one set of ETFs will pay on these dates one set pays on the next set of dates etc etc it continues it continues and basically it might as well be paying monthly so what we’re looking at here is a set up of ETFs across different market sectors that cover different market. You know. sectors I guess and they work together to be kind of a dream team I suppose we’re kind of a nice amalgamation not necessarily a dream team. But it’s what I’ve managed to put together so far, so we have V W o first. Okay, as you can see in the I should specify the average dividend yield between all the funds is roughly 2.5 percent annually. But as I said that pays pretty much they each pay quarterly. But I have them set up to pay on different quarterly months. So it kind of makes sense alright so first we have V wo. Now you can see I have 25 shares of V W oh here 1022 dollars of equity MARTA it’s not too bad that’s pretty reasonable as emerging markets fun. So I believe it has a pretty good dividend yield overall let’s go ahead and take a look at that why not write a 2.5 for 7% of an in deal overall that’s not bad that’s actually pretty nice next we have the S PhD this is the PowerShares S&P 500 high dividend portfolio once again high dividend sounds pretty nice right 879 dollars of equity in this one at 22 shares as you can see here three point nine eight eight percent dividend yield annually paid quarter I believe. But once again not bad not bad option here next we have menu we’re just going to forget about menu for now. Because this one it’s not that important right I only have 17 dollars of equity in this one pretty small dividend yield on that one one point one six percent so that was pretty negligible honestly this is kind of a small little offering I have there next we have ve a vanguard MSCI e AF e e TF this is kind of a European market fund as you can see here 21 shares 864 dollars. Okay, in total you can see the dividend yield here is actually two point eight five eight percent so once again not bad and these funds really are more centered around growth than dividends. But the dividends aren’t bad is basically one of stressing with this article. You know. they’re still actually pretty decent overall next we have X T XT is the iShares exponential technologies ETF 61 shares at nineteen hundred and forty-five dollars of equity. Okay, dividend yield on this one here is one point eight two five slightly lower than the average. But once again not too bad then we have vog legged my mouse to move there we go vog one hundred and twenty-three dollars per share eighteen shares of two thousand two hundred and twenty dollars equity this one has dipped a bit. But. I think that the recovery should also be just fine slightly smaller dividend yield also at one point five nine four percent then we have vti banker a total stock market ETF this covers the United States markets which is really. You know. quite nice quite quite a nice conglomeration of course it has been down a little bit. But that’s. Okay, eight shares at nine hundred ninety six dollars of equity as you can see there here one point eight four three percent dividend yield then we have VB and Vanguard small cap ETF at nine hundred and forty five dollars of equity you can see here one hundred one point four eight one percent dividend yield annually not bad once again and finally bringing up their rear we have the Vanguard total world stock ETF which is basically a world market fund which is honestly quite nice. Because it does actually. You know. include all areas of the market really across across not a cloth across the globe so really a pretty nice offering here. Okay, as you can see here 2.30 6% of an annealed then we have AMD and some other smaller stocks which we’re not really concerned about so that basically adds up to about probably 2 point 2 to 2.5 percent average per year which honestly is not too bad so about 10 grand in the portfolio and overall that’s a pretty nice little payout so it’s nothing huge. But the payouts have honestly been pretty decent overall. So I think I detailed um kind of in a past article I have received more of them. So I might make another article about that. But anyway folks I hope you all have a truly fantastic thank you breakers tech breakout and if you enjoyed this content from the tech crack house feel free to leave a like share a subscribe if you wish to support us monthly feel free to check out our patreon page if you like the content feel free to subscribe and ask plenty of questions I usually answer questions in article format 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 thank you so much for joining me again at the tech crank house. So this article will be covering the m1 finance app or some sort of investment type deal that actually works with the app and works well with it. So if you like that you’re in for a treat and feel free to leave a like share subscribe and hit that Bell button below to receive a notification every single time the tech crackhouse uploads another article other than that folks let’s go ahead and get right into it so recently an m1 finance I’ve been running a pretty interesting kind of experiment I think and I’ve been comparing a low risk monthly income portfolio with a high risk monthly income portfolio so when I say low risk. I mean securities that have oh god what’s the aggregate portfolio dividend yield for this one let’s go and take a look it’s seven point eight seven percent for the dividend yield of the low risk and for the high risk the aggregate dividend yield is twelve point two seven percent. So this is nearing what I would consider to be my comfortability of limit I really want to want to go much higher than this in terms of dividend yields however this portfolio is really jumping around to your life the low-risk monthly income portfolio the the dividend yield is honestly pretty reasonable okay. Now if you look at the projection projections here apartment for this one year over the past year this portfolio the the low-risk dividend portfolio would have returned roughly ten point two four percent in terms of growth the high-risk portfolio. Okay, would have returned roughly nineteen percent in terms of growth so is that true do those numbers hold true let’s go ahead and take a look. Okay, over this holding period for the low-risk monthly income portfolio which has been roughly a month or so the portfolio has generated roughly a one point four three percent return so multiply that by 12 and we’re looking 13% 14% so a little bit higher than the predicted outcome however. You know. one-month growth is not reflective of an entire year’s growth. I think that done goes without saying. But it is right around where it’s been estimated. Now if we go to the high-risk you can see that the one one month growth roughly is currently sitting at right about two two point three or two point one three pardon me who sent apparently I can’t read today so that is pretty much writing. You know. right on the money once again for the back tested yearly expectation so what we’re looking at here is we’re seeing a pretty accurate results this is pretty much what I would expect I did honestly expect the high risk dividend income portfolio to have a bit more fluctuation and that looks like that is. You know. pretty much holding true also we can see a bit more fluctuation here a few more downs and ups than the low-risk this is slightly more smooth with a slightly higher period here around the fourth this is slightly a little bit rougher a little bit more. You know. fluctuating here with a high period around the ninth so these are obviously very different portfolios. Now my real question was with the dividend payouts the more stable dividend payouts of the lower risk monthly dividend portfolio kind of. You know. bring to bear a good balance between the portfolio’s. Because I thought theoretically this one’s a lot more secure and the the dividends would be paid out more consistently and reasonably however when we look at the breakdown here see here let’s look at activity account value five hundred and eight dollars if we look here you can see the total dividends so far, for this one month period amounts to one dollar and sixty four cents. So if we go back to this portfolio here in the main page we can see here that we really have to. You know. allocate those dividends and. You know. really really kind of account for them so what and this is kind of like scurry to look at yours I apologize if this is confusing at all 508. Okay. You know. like I said let’s go back. Okay, so the dividends are being. You know. kind of excluded here which is something that we need to consider. So if we look at this and we go to the details which I’ve been kind of bouncing around in you can see that the total have values 508 dollars and seventy seven cents one dollar and sixty four cents of dividends paid out. Now if we go to the hirez portfolio two dollars and seventy seven cents of dividends paid out for a total value of five hundred and thirteen dollars and forty-one cents essentially what we’re looking at here is for one month the higher yielding dividend stocks did outperform the lower yielding dividend stocks. Because essentially they had a little bit more fluctuation. But that also led to slightly more aggressive growth and their dividend payments were consistent for the month period. Now that’s not to say that they would be consistent for the long term. Okay, monthly dividend stocks that payout at a higher rate tend to be less consistent they tend to drop dividends they tend to. You know. sometimes inflate dividends kind of artificially to get investors I’ve been more interested in whatever they’re offering and those are some good strategies they are necessarily great for the investor. But they tend to be pretty decent for the company. Now what I really like to see. You know. what I really am happy to see with these portfolios is a lot of these dividends are paid out frequently. Okay, 25 26 27 28 29 oh. You know. they’re at their frequent. Okay, their frequent which I really like to see. Because that’s essentially what I was going for with his portfolios I wanted to see if frequent dividend payouts especially. You know. kind of like a dividend payout per day. Now obviously if we’re looking at a 30 day period and we might have seven dividends here that’s not a dividend per day that’s roughly dividend every four days however if you’re growing it for. You know. income and you really do want some good income payments and you want income paid frequently you could set up a dividend portfolio with a larger chunk of cash using like emmalin finance or any sort of incremental PI based sort of a portfolio creation software type service thing or even Robin Hood something we’re hands-off and you can really set up a dividend paying portfolio to payout extremely frequently which is pretty important for people that want to collect income dividends are taxed so be wary of that. But all things considered these are both performed really pretty well I’m pretty happy with this. You know. the the higher yielding dividends did perform better. But this is only one month I probably am going to definitively end this test here. But if you do to see more tests like this in the future let me know. Because I’m always happy to kind of experimental things conduct some different experiments and it’s interesting right. So I think that’s gonna do it for this for this article thank you so much for joining me here at the tech crank house I really appreciate your viewership and feel free to share this article with your garbage can your dog’s your friends your parents your uncle’s maybe an aunt or two if you even if you really want to and. Yeah, that’s it folks so thank you again 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.
so recently I’ve been making a lot of articles basically based around penny stocks and other kind of quicker ways to make a little bit of extra money using. You know. the stock market trading apps etc etc today I just want to go back to my roots and kind of talk about a more simple way to actually make money in the stock market that honestly works it’s better for newer investors and it’s honestly it is relatively simple overall and easy to understand so of course what I’m talking about is actually be buy and hold method that is such a classic and honestly you can’t go wrong with ok so basically this is what I would recommend that all new investors do before they fiddle with anything else before they try penny stock trading day trading swing trading or anything at all. I think that it’s absolutely critical and imperative that people try using the stock market and my laptop’s battery is low apparently basically. You know. how it was initially kind of used back in the day. Now I should really say that. Because of course you have the Rothschild stock trading method where they they kind of treated it like a cold shower. You know. like quick in quick out and they went back and forth. But many people have been hoarding stocks for many years as kind of retirement plans a simple way to kind of earn money through growth kind of passive income etc and this is very it runs opposite to. You know. some of the other ways of earning stocks or earning money with the stock market. Because classic growth is very hard to beat when it comes to making money on the stock market there are many people who have invested money. You know. way back when and they’ve held on to it in the market and you know. Now after being invested for a hundred years or whatever it’s worth quite a great deal of money and that’s. Because growth is one of the best ways to make money on the stock market so as you can see here I’m going to talk about this a little bit I using AMD as an example so AMD currently costs about $13 per share that’s relatively inexpensive right 13 bucks per share over the past year it’s grown by 7.9 seven cents per share. So if you bought in at this point here and you bought in for four dollars and held it for one year you would. Now be up almost eight dollars which is really pretty good. You know. it’s difficult to really replicate that as reliably with other methods of trading on the stock market. Now if you’re experienced it is possible. But as you can see with AMD here that’s quite a good return for really only buying into a stock and holding onto it and that’s why the growth method is one of the best. Because you simply buy in at a certain point and you hold the stock until it’s grown in value it’s very simple honestly. So if we go back here and we look even at UM I’m going to pull up a Apple or a pl here if we look at Apple you can see that apples growth one second here has been reliably very good over the past year – they’ve grown by fifty dollars in the past year. So if you bought in. You know. at this point you would have spent ninety three dollars and. Now you have a hundred and forty four dollars so basically growth is honestly still one of the best ways to earn money on the stock market. You know. I’m not going to pull your legs or anything like that and say you have to do any sort of trading. You know. any sort of strange or crazy trading method in order to make money on the stock market it’s just not true. Okay, it’s not necessary you can still simply buy and hold stocks and make out pretty well there’s nothing wrong with that. So if you’re a newer investor I would recommend what you really do when you start trading is actually just find a stock that you like buy into it and just hold on to it for a while it’s very simple and it makes a lot of sense. So if you’re on the fence about investing. You know. try the growth method you don’t really need to know a ton about investing to actually find a decent stock that you like and buy into it and then. You know. earn through growth it’s really very simple. So I just want to. You know. kind of make a quick article ranting about that we’re not really ranting. But kind of outlining that. Because I think it’s important and it’s something that a lot of people tend to overlook so don’t go to ham on stock market. You know. feel free to invest in growth stocks if you want and there’s something wrong that. So I think that’s going to wrap this article up folks hope you’ll have a fantastic day and thank you for watching not you if you enjoyed this article stick around for more content here at the tech crack house feel free to like share subscribe and check out our patreon page if you wish to support us monthly thank you again for watching this has been Mike and adios.
What is up. ladies and gentlemen welcome back to the tech grant counts here thank you so much for joining me today so today I will actually be talking about a $1,000 apartment Fang FA ang which if you don’t know that’s a technology conglomerate which a lot of ETFs are kind of cropping up around it focuses on some of the most successful technology companies that are currently out there and are kind of up and coming. But are also doing well currently so right um a lot of these stocks are kind of overplayed right. Now I think. But I want to kind of make a portfolio talking about how you could earn a little bit of money with them with a $1,000 stock portfolio revolving around Fang stocks I hadn’t really covered them before. So I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to kind of get down and dirty with them. You know. if you will and yes so in this portfolio I will be focusing on relatively low risk ETFs that you can use to achieve long term growth and stability so that’s good for new investors. All right, and that’s when it boils down to pretty much. So it might not be great for incredible returns. But it can serve as a pretty good backbone for a portfolio or for other investments so thanks stocks once again some of the highest performing stocks tech stocks on the market currently and. Yeah, so without further ado I’m going to go ahead and get right into the stocks and I’ll give you a bit of a breakdown as to how this portfolio actually works so I’ll be showing you the stocks where the ETF’s rather on robhinhood and keep in mind that I do know that Robin Hood is not really useful for technical analysis so I’ll just be giving you a few stats and I’ll be reading off a few more facts and figures for you so first one. Okay, it’s QQQ here QQQ 3qs right in a row pretty snazzy right so as you can see here this is the PowerShares QQQ trust series 1. Now that’s a mouthful. But at the same time it’s a pretty good offering currently 144 dollars per share one year outlook on this one is actually in 29% growth five-year 143 percent growth some typical Fang relatively good growth overall even over the long term everything has grown up pretty well and that’s all so it’s a nice thing to see so when we’re looking at this let’s go ahead and look at market cap fifty five point three four billion that’s an average market cap for a conglomeration of this size average volume is twenty four point zero four two million per day. So if you want to get out of your position at any time it’s likely that you’d be able to sell and people will actually want to buy from you so vulgar I suppose so moving along here so yes qqq’s assets forty nine point five six billion of course that basically with liabilities subtracted that’s what assets are holdings with liabilities subtracted I believe beta is one point one two so in case you aren’t familiar beta of one a beta of one is the market standard so the standard sp500 volatility it’s a volatility measurement below that it’s considered less volatile. Okay, below one less volatile above one more volatile. So this one is one point one two so slightly more volatile than the average market. But at the same time it’s nothing too concerning right so p/e ratio here is eight point O nine that’s what I found on line four QQQ when I did my research Robin Hood is reporting it at twenty seven point one nine three so I’m not entirely sure that it’s correct from Robin Hood seems a bit off. But uh 8.0 nine is what I drew from from online expense ratio expense ratios with ETFs are very important expense ratio here is 0.20% so not extremely overbearing or anything like that it’s a little bit higher than you I can typically go you can usually score a lower expense ratio than that. But QQQ it’s a bit more expensive so as we’re looking at this one here the top holdings of QQQ here we have apple at eleven point three percent of their holdings Microsoft at eight point one four percent their holdings and Amazon at seven point one eight so a nice little blend there overall I really like that kind of cobbling together they have and they have many other good holdings – so that’s QQQ. Okay, moving right along here we’re looking at QLD I believe is the ticker for this one here so as you can see $63 per share it is the pro shares ultra QQQ so it’s like QQQ on steroids I suppose five-year growth here or one year growth farm is sixty three percent growth that’s honestly pretty nice five-year growth three hundred and ninety eight percent growth that’s very good alright. Now you might be thinking that’s a little high and it is. Because this is a leveraged fun. So if you’re unfamiliar leveraged funds use buying on margin buying during different scenarios and stuff like that and a bit more strict management to make more money so it’s not strict in the sense that they’re careful with your money it’s strict in the sense that they’re really out there to make money so keep that in mind acuity okay. But anyway I their current their assets rating is 1.2 to billion average volume here is one point eight to six million which is really pretty good so once again good liquidity there if you ever want to get out of it quickly p/e ratio cannot be found I look for that online too and that’s probably. Because it is a largely leveraged one now. Because it’s leveraged it does have a slightly higher expense ratio a point nine five percent so a bit more expensive. Because people are managing the money a bit more closely. But it’s nothing too severe it’s a little bit more than I like I it’s it’s really it’s reaching. All right. But we’re going to we’re going to go with that for. Now 0.95% expense ratio so top holdings are actually Nasdaq 100 index holdings that are leveraged so not really stretched companies like this. But but leveraged holdings of index companies it’s it’s kind of complicated. But I know Credit Suisse is one of them so keep that in mind it’s a little bit different than your traditional fund so next we have te q q q and. Now once again this one is a bit more leveraged once again is the pro shares ultra pro q QQ so not even ultra. But ultra pro my god alright it’s getting even more ultra by the minute so as we look at this one here when you’re out like 105 percent growth five-year outlook 852 percent growth. Now once again that’s extremely good growth it is a leveraged fund so keep that in mind. Okay, a lot more management a bit riskier quite a bit riskier I should say for your money. So if you’re not so much into risk watch out for these ones. Okay, so first one QQQ good for low-risk other ones and not so good so altogether I might call this a moderately aggressive portfolio so anyway let’s continue average volume here is 3.4 million shares per day so not a bad volume a bit lower than the other ones. But at the same time if you want to sell you’re not going to have any issues with that I found the p/e ratio online to be 8.0 9 and actually for geology I forgot to state the beta the beta for QLD right here was 2 point 4 3 so much more volatile than the market standard. All right, teehee QQQ. All right, T QQQ the beta for this one is three point seven four. All right, so that’s even higher than the last one we looked at so three point seven four it’s pretty extreme alright so be cautious with that p/e ratio is 8 point o 9 that’s not that’s not too bad that’s actually what I consider to be kind of good iuck Spencer shows point nine five percent so once again more expensive to actually maintain and to run which really kind of makes sense. Because it is leverage once again and their top holdings come from the nasdaq-100 I leverage swap so leveraged overall higher growth greater risk keep that in mind alright so moving along here. Okay, so for this portfolio to work you want to have about three hundred and thirty three dollars in each holdings so as you can see the way these break down that’s kind of hard to achieve. But if you budget it out and you add a bit more money to kind of top off your shares you could definitely definitely do that so 333 bucks and each of the three brings you to about a thousand bucks overall this is a pretty good return on assets and equity. I actually looked at these in the return on assets and equity ratings were a bit higher than the S&P 500 standard once again that was through an analysis tool so kind of hard to say if it’s a 100 percent legitimate or not. But. You know. no guarantee here of course. Okay, so the projected growth is actually 12 point oh five percent per year once again analysis tool so no guarantees at all definitely be cautious with your money. All right, the dividend yield is relatively low compared to the S&P 500 it’s like a fraction like a fifth of what the S&P 500 yields. But we’re not really looking at dividends for this one here so um the market cap over for the portfolio is actually 1.7 1 times what the S&P 500 is so it’s a big market conglomeration so typical of phang once again large market caps. But yes that’s pretty much a 1,000 dollar portfolio putting that in here it’s like 120 bucks per year or something like that of return which which really isn’t too bad that’s theoretical once again so keep that in mind everything here is theoretical in theory it makes sense right. But in practice things could turn out a lot differently so anyway folks I just want to make a article highlighting that I hope that all of you enjoyed and learn something if you did feel free to leave like share subscribe do all that good stuff folks I really appreciate it have a good one and on him 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 you.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the girl tech crack house so today I’m basically going to be telling you how you can kind of earn with about ten bucks. Now this might seem unreasonable and this really only works with a certain type of trading platform and what. I mean when I say that is basically you need to have access to a trading platform that really doesn’t charge Commission fees is pretty much free to use and it’s just kind of more flexible overall in terms of saving you money so honestly the Robin Hood app would be a good option for this there are other options. But basically Robin Hood is what we’re going to be looking at today and I think this article should be pretty interesting so feel free to stick around whilst I explain myself. So you might be thinking ten bucks that’s insane right how am I going to make money with ten bucks and it’s actually really pretty simple nation buy. You know. cheap stocks that will probably grow over the long term. I mean AMD is usually hovering around the 13 12 13 dollar mark Glu Glu use like 2 to 3 dollars per share Zynga zui it and G or something like that don’t quote me on that ticker is usually pretty inexpensive also so there are good companies out there that really don’t cost much however today I’ll be talking about basically how you can kind of create a Mike micro a micro cap portfolio with stocks ok so what you need to look at here what our main goal here is is finding inexpensive stocks that are cheap per share first of all and have a low market cap so low market cap stocks are typically much. You know. riskier than larger caps which are typically blue chips more successful companies companies that have been around for a long time however small cap and micro cap companies have a pretty good opportunity to grow in the future. Because they’re so small growth is almost almost guarantee it’s not guaranteed I shouldn’t say that it’s all it’s very likely that they’ll grow. All right, I’m trying not to get the not to get too technical here. But basically these stocks typically grow they don’t always end their grip there’s a great deal of risk involved here but. Because they’re so small cap. You know. they do to typically grow over a period of time so a lot of these companies have negative earnings which might kind of throw you off negative earnings are not good okay. But as we can see here with Tara via Holdings or TV IAS the ticker for this one the earnings have been on a gradual uptick over the past few quarters so it’s not great yet. But with companies like this sometimes you see them pull themselves up by their bootstraps and kind of hold on and they actually end up basically posting profits and being profitable after a while of waiting so they’re kind of like not good now. But. Maybe they’ll be good in the future is kind of what we’re going off of with this method so TVI TVI a per me here is actually a pretty good example of this as you can see they’ve been in the negatives. But they’re slowly increasing their profitability. Now they have an extremely small market cap of twenty point nine five million that’s so small that they have a lot of room for growth and they have a lot of growing to do I think. So you know. Because it’s 20 cents per one share roughly and it’s actually up about three percent today it was about five percent I think just a few minutes ago it actually peaked at being up around 10 percent or 16 percent today which is quite good that isn’t necessarily guaranteed at first. But if you hold on to a stock like this once it’s down so far, once it’s so cheap. You know. growth there is a good growth potential there. So this one has sunk over the past week 21 percent down 40 percent of the past month down 60 percent over the past three months done 92 percent over the past year. Now 90 percent over the past five years so some companies just don’t have a good start. Okay, companies do recover we’ve seen companies recover in the past. All right, so be wary of this method. Because it can be risky. But if you want to kind of make a micro cap formation and you just want to put 10 bucks into many different stocks. I mean you can buy five shares of TV IA for a dollar will be worth your while that’s hard to say alright. But you can buy into it so interesting to consider I think. Something I thought it would talk about kind of a micro-cap conglomeration people do this right people actually do this it’s not just something I’m making up so look into some cheap stocks you’re gone all tanks comm you can look up stocks under $1 on the NYC or Nasdaq etc I’ll give you a few examples and future articles also basically some stocks that do that same thing or that are cheap I shouldn’t say do that same thing this doesn’t really make sense so anyway folks I just want to talk about this for a bit hope you all have a truly fantastic thank you very here at Tech right.

one is up ladies and gents welcome back to the tech crack counts here today so first of all I just want to say a quick thank you to all of you out there for subscribing liking sharing all that good stuff we’re actually at about eleven thousand subscribers which is amazing the channel is growing. Now like crazy it seriously is picking up a ton which I’m really thankful for so thank you all of you out there also today the tech crack house portfolio recently surpassed or today it surpassed a total equity value of eleven thousand dollars which is once again quite exciting so eleven thousand subscribers eleven thousand dollars it’s actually a trend that I would like to keep going. You know. I’ll have a thousand bucks in there for however many subscribers I have does that seem fair maybe I’ll think about doing that. But anyway folks to cut to the chase of this article. You know. my portfolio today really buffed up a lot on technology stocks. Because my tech stocks I. You know. it’s betting quite a bit on them and they actually took a bit of a dive. But recently they have recovered and they’re doing decently. Now they’re doing alright so today I want to talk about earning some cash money with social media stocks. Now I’m talking growth mainly. You know. I want to look at some different social media stocks and not social media stock parent companies so not Google or anything like that. But I’m talking Facebook Twitter and snapchat I want to compare some metrics between them kind of give you. You know. an idea of which one is best you’re probably thinking Facebook right off the bat. But the other words are kind of interesting to consider right so many social media stocks are highly valuable I think many of. You know. that. You know. social media. Now is not only used by younger audience. But also many older people use social media a ton. Okay, I know older people than me that use Facebook way more than I do. I mean I don’t even have a Facebook page which might seem outrageous. But it’s true I don’t have a Facebook page so with audiences expanding social media is becoming even more viable than it once was and. I think that social media is pretty well set up for even more good growth so let’s look and some of the best social media stocks out there that are currently available for investing so when I say out there we’re covering once again only strictly social medias and the stocks companies. Okay, we’re not covering Microsoft or Google or anything like that. Because we’re looking only at social media we’re putting our blinders on and looking only at social media so let’s go ahead and get started here. Okay, let me go ahead and scroll down to to my my list for this article. Okay, so. Now that I have those added and pulled up on Robinhood we’re going to go ahead and take a look through them I’ll be giving you some quick info from Robin Hood and then kind of talking about different stats that I’ve actually researched on my own so for Facebook here the ticker is obviously FB. All right, so let’s go ahead and look at the one year outcome 38 percent growth over one year that’s quite good. Okay, five-year growth 485 percent growth which is once again really pretty remarkable so looking at this we can actually see that the volume is an average volume of 18.9 to nine million shares per day so great liquidity there with Facebook right so. Now that we’ve looked at those let me go ahead and give you the other stat so beta is 0.45 meaning that it’s generally less volatile than the market itself. Okay, so a lower a beta lower than one typically indicates lower volatility so then we have p/e ratio here a p/e ratio for Facebook of 41.4 one that’s not extreme a higher p/e ratio is usually worse than a lower one. But Facebook that’s that’s still respectable so earnings per share for Facebook three dollars and ninety three cents earned per share and it has an overall rating between one and five where one is a strong Buy and five is a sell of 1.7 by the professionals so the professionals are indicating that Facebook is really a pretty good option in terms of. You know. they’re recommending that you buy it so is that my personal recommendation and not necessarily. You know. Facebook is. Okay, I do own some technology stocks that Facebook’s Facebook sticker in the holdings that I said that we I have some technology ETS that have facebook included in them so next we actually have twitter we’re going to be looking Twitter here once again. So I go ahead and skip ahead here twtr is the ticker for Twitter and Twitter is a bit strange alright it’s not as successful as Facebook as you can see it’s currently 20 dollars per share that’s not too bad one your outlook on this one is 8% growth that’s nothing fantastic. Okay, it’s alright. But it’s not like Facebook ok it’s not Facebook level growth it’s what I’m saying past five years it’s actually lost fifty five percent value fifty five point four forty percent of its value which is a relatively big loss so I’m not going to lie that’s not too good and that’s not what you want to see with the stock. Okay, so that in mind with that loss. You know. you got to remember Twitter went through several CEO transitions which really didn’t do them any favors despite shareholders initially thinking that Twitter would be greatly benefiting from the CEO transitions if we look at volume here the average volume per day is twenty two point nine five three million so once again really pretty good liquidity they’re looking at Robin Hood stats the beta for Twitter is 1.07 so generally more volatile than the market itself in the standard S&P 500 index p/e ratio is negative thirty two point three three it’s in the negatives. Because their earnings are in the negatives too their earnings per share is actually negative 0.62 so they’re not bringing money in necessarily they are. But it’s not out weighing their liabilities I suppose so with that in mind Twitter is definitely a less rock-solid option than Facebook which is what. I expected to see what I think many of you would have expected to see also so moving along here the overall buy or sell or whatever rating from the professionals for Twitter is actually a three point three so it’s right around the hold mark leaning toward sell honestly. You know. that’s not great. But I think people are still kind of holding out faith for Twitter. Because they want to see what happens with it and I don’t blame them Twitter is interesting and really. You know. if they can nail the features and they can bring back users that were initially with them that like the futures back in the day I really think the Twitter could be successful will it be no one knows yet. Okay, so that’s the pros think. All right, so next we have snapchat SN AP little old snap. All right, this is relatively new it was incepted. Yeah, in March in early March of 2017 so really pretty new the price is currently about half of the all-time high which is really not good I pretty much kind of expected this to have no snap a lot of people got really hyped about it and I think they were kind of disappointed so there’s no point in looking at the five-year outlook on that one if we look at volume here twenty four point four three three million shares per day that’s still a great liquidity so honestly if you want to get rid of something or get rid of your shares of snap or buy shares of snap you can probably do that always. Okay, people are always going to be trading it looking at some stats for snap here. Because I I. You know. I got to feed you some actual stats the beta is n/a I could have find the beta for snap anywhere if. You know. the beta for snap please feel free to leave it down in the comment section below. Because honestly I could not find it. Okay, p/e ratio over snap is actually negative 4.8 – that’s not as bad as Twitter. But it’s still not that good and the earnings per share for snap is negative 3 point over 5 so they’re bringing in a lot of debt and they’re not doing fantastically however they did bring that dancing hot dog thing to the forefront you probably know what I’m talking about it’s it’s it’s interesting and then. Yeah, it’s just. You know. from a scale of 1 to 5 the professionals rated at 2.7 so it’s relatively close to hold. But it’s kind of leaning toward by so we’re going to see what develops with stache. I mean snap that’s – what am I saying anyway I thought this article would be interesting. Because social media is really a big part of many people’s lives and I would recommend checking out these social media stocks. Because I think Twitter and snap. You know. they could be on sale right. Now Facebook I do think is a relatively good value um so. Yeah, anyway let me know if you like getting some extra stats from my my own end here for my own research I find it very enjoyable to add the stats in there so anyway folks have a fantastic day thank you so much for watching I really and on you 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.
What is up. ladies and gentlemen and welcome back to the tech crank house so today I figured it was probably about time for another portfolio style article. Because I recently have been talking a lot about Bitcoin different alternative stocks penny stocks etc and. You know. while I do like those things a lot I am definitely still very much so a conventional investor I have a main kind of skeletal account that I like to use as a bit of a backbone for my investing so while I do kind of deviate and look into different things like the coin in penny stocks I really like investing conventionally also so I’m gonna go ahead and give you a quick run-through of my curved portfolio set up so you’ve probably seen those articles in the past if you haven’t I’m just gonna give you kind of some ideas basically about what I want to do in the future of my account and what I’m planning on kind of doing in the near future as well as some things I’ve done in the recent past to kind of strengthen or balance the portfolio overall so also one of you commented on it sounding echo in here echoey pardon me I would agree with that so I’ve actually ordered some soundproofing panels and the next time I record you’ll probably see those in the background so thank you for your input really appreciate it and without further adieu I’m gonna go ahead and give you a quick little look into my portfolio so the other week my portfolio was at roughly thirteen thousand six hundred dollars of value so I’ve actually put about another thousand dollars into the the portfolio itself here and I’ve allocated that in a way to kind of I think help combat a bit of the technology bubble that was kind of going on with my portfolio. Now I like technology stocks a lot. So I have a pretty high allocation of the tikar XT which I’ll show you in a second. But. I actually I put a lot of that money that I added in this past week into s PhD which is more of a conventional S&P 500 dividend based funds with a fun department which pays dividends pretty regularly and it pays out pretty good dividends so it’s not just a good fun for. You know. relatively stable growth. But also for dividend which I find extremely important especially when I’m looking at. You know. a bit higher volatility with XT and some of the more growth centric ETM so I’m actually invested in so let me go ahead and scroll down here to my investments. Now this is the penny styler portfolio that you’re seeing right here I’ll be covering that in just a little bit something that we did in the past and that we’re still working on so starting out here with VW oh. Okay, once it go. Yeah, there we go okay. Now it’s up so Vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets ETF this actually focuses largely on emerging markets which I find to be very. You know. good for myself. Because I’m kind of a younger guy and emerging markets they’re a bit more risky. But at the same time they can have returns that are really pretty good overall as you can see the total return here is $81 so far, which I’m really pretty satisfied with. Now I have about twelve hundred dollars of equity in there which isn’t a ton. But it’s still a pretty decent amount moving on to s pH D this is the PowerShares S&P 500 high dividend portfolio I have roughly three thousand dollars of equity in this one okay. Now it says the total return is a loss of 0.7 eight percent or roughly twenty three dollars however with the dividends that this fund has paid out it’s actually pretty much caught up. Now so once again this is really more kind of dividend centric which is something that I think is important for my portfolio next we have V ei which is the banker at MSCI EAF a ETF this is a European emerging markets fund I believe or just kind of more european markets which I think is good it’s good diversify in that kind of aspect or you can kind of like. You know. be not only exposed to markets in the United States. But also markets elsewhere so about $1,000 of equity there next we have X T which is the iShares exponential technologies ETF. Okay, pretty good here pretty good. All right, equity value of around 2000 dollars total return is $55 so far. Now once again that’s a very technology centric I’m trying to avoid a technology bubble. Because that would definitely be bad so I’m just kind of feeling that out and. You know. I kind of back off the allocation from this one a little bit and I tried to balance it out with the SP HD as I mentioned previously so that’s XT next we have vo og which is the Vanguard S&P 500 growth ETF another pretty good one here. Okay, 25 shares at three thousand one hundred and forty six dollars of equity. So this is pretty much the heaviest hitter of the entire portfolio which. You know. it’s a very good Growth Fund. So I definitely like it a lot when your growth is 17 percent over the past year. So, you know. really pretty good overall. Okay, pretty good growth and. You know. growth is something that I’m definitely interested in as I said previously so next we have vti which is the Vanguard total stock market ETF have about twelve hundred dollars of equity in that one. You know. emerging markets once again more more total world stock market than anything else then we have V B which is the Vanguard small camp ETF twelve hundred dollars of equity once again return on this one is it fantastic. But. You know. it’s more risky it’s a small cap fund so that’s kind of more to be expected on last. But not least we have V T which is the Vanguard a total world stock ETF which total returns so far, $17 which isn’t too bad once again. Okay, fifteen hundred dollars of equity there and. You know. overall the stats for that one are also pretty satisfactory so good stuff overall in general. Okay. You know. I like it it’s going pretty well for me so. Yeah, anyway folks I think that’s gonna do for this article I really appreciate all of you watching I keep right here the tech rank house for more content and audios 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 crack house thank you so much for joining me today so today I just wanted to give you another quick rundown of the tech crack house stock portfolio. Now this is a relatively large sum of money in here you know. So if you aren’t comfortable with this or you want to scale it down absolutely feel free this just kind of give you some ideas about what to invest maybe what to look at I just for fun and. So I can provide some quick tips as to what I do so the portfolio is currently sitting it right around $14,000. Now hopefully I’m going to go ahead and top it off soon and just get it right at 14,000 which I think would be quite nice to kind of round it up. But going to go ahead and show you a brief performance up to the one-month period. Because that’s really the only length of time this portfolio has been assembled eventually we’ll get we’ll move on to three months and one year performance outlooks. But for. Now let’s go ahead and start on the one day outlook here and then move forward ok so one day so far, you can see it’s looking pretty good. Okay, not too bad it’s done. All right, today. Now one day is pretty inconsequential. Because you can see over the past week it hasn’t done all that great. Now last week there was a big drop in the market and that definitely affected the portfolio so that. You know. the portfolio was really doing extremely well and then that one day definitely brought it down a little bit so with that being said the one-month performance here is actually still not bad. Okay, it’s still three hundred and twenty two dollars of growth over the past month which is 2.4 percent so really. You know. all things considered that’s really not too bad. Now I did average this out and I think average per year I might see roughly 72 dollars a week of growth theoretically. Now nothing is guaranteed there of course. But according to my. You know. relatively brief calculations that’s what it should roughly amount to so decent growth really. You know. it’s not incredibly conservative. But I did actually do a few things to round out the portfolio recently to kind of make it a bit more moderate than aggressive. Because it was extremely aggressive really and. Now it’s definitely more honor it leaning more moderate aggressive so with that being said when we go ahead and show you quick breakdown of the stocks in the portfolio so first we have our penny stock portfolio from the community and we’re going to ignore that for. Now however I will be making an update article on that extremely soon so be ready for that. Because uh. Yeah. You know. it’s it’s something that we’re doing as a community so anyway first I have ewo. Now I have about one thousand one hundred and seventy four dollars and VW oh not too bad. Okay, it’s one of the smaller players in the portfolio. Okay, moving on SP HT which is the PowerShares S&P 500 high dividend portfolio. Now this one I have roughly two thousand one hundred and eighty-seven dollars so as you can see the total return isn’t too bad overall. But this is a more conservative ETF so it’s nothing too focused on growth which i thought was good and I thought that would round out the portfolio a little bit next we have V ei which is the amang guard MSCI EI fe etf fund which is actually valued the equity is 1110. Now another comment with SP HD here. Okay, I recently did add more money into this one to kind of round things out so just want to say that once again to emphasize so after ve a we have X T which is the iShares exponential technologies ETF. Now this focus is mainly on technology and different technology related stocks so pretty interesting if you’re interested in either of. You know. in any of those things that I listed Toto return with this one so far, has been pretty darn good and. Yeah, two thousand forty five dollars of equity overall then we have vog Vanguard S&P 500 growth ETF three thousand dollars of equity making this one the leader in terms of equity in the portfolio so once again something that I am trying to round out a little bit more next we have vti a one thousand two hundred and seventy one dollars of equity next we have VB 1228 once again this one is a bit more aggressive and its approach then we have V T which is evander a total world stock ETF fifteen hundred dollars of equity in this one here so not too extreme. But. You know. nice nice little value there and then finally last. But not least I have a few shares of AMD and actually I do own more AMD proportionally in the xt etf the the technologies ETF and I like AMD so it’s kind of the odd one out. But at the same time it’s definitely a favorite of mine. So I thought I would bring it up so anyway I don’t want to make these articles too long so thank you so much for watching that’s my portfolio in a nutshell if you do have any questions at all feel free to ask them down below. Because I really do want to try to help you out so feel free thank you so much for watching keep right here detect crack hell and audio 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 I roll in the next article this has been Mike signing off.
What is up. ladies and gentlemen welcome back here to the good old Tec crack house here today so first of all I just want to say if you’re watching the market recently today is actually the 27th of July. So I am filming this a bit in advance. But with that being said the market is down pretty severely today i think it’s down about 1.7 percent or something along those lines it’s just not pretty it’s actually quite ugly. So I just want to remind all of you if the market drops don’t panic don’t panic sell. Because that just makes things worse typically and avoid selling off too quickly that’s my advice if the market drops treat it as a sale buy more stock buy different stocks that you’re interested in. But I highly advise you to not panic sell. Okay, so as Warren Buffett once said only dis investors lose when they sell so anyway folks this is kind of a brief introduction for this article. But what. I actually want to talk about today is my roughly 13,000 dollar portfolio that earns about 60 bucks a week or so and growth and that’s not accounting for dividends. Because with that growth being considered we’re going to use dividends as sort of a buffer mechanism to account for any sort of marginal fluctuations and growth that might occur. So if dividends are not being considered here the dividends that I have I think the pay is roughly five percent or so per year so it’s nothing great. But it’s pretty stable overall and it’s not bad so anyway my portfolio is currently valued at roughly $13,000. Now I say roughly. Because when I’m making this as you can see the market took a serious dive today and that caused the value of my portfolio to drop quite a bit. Now when you see the one-day return here at 816 dollars and 3 cents that’s not accurate. Because. I actually put money in today and Robin Hood has a weird glitch where it like takes that money and adds it to your day’s growth for about a day or two until the value equals out and then go back to normal. But the account has not grown by that much in one day I wish it had. But it hasn’t. Okay, so essentially that number is a bit erroneous. But with that being said the growth for today isn’t really that good and the girl that the growth pardon me over the past week has. Now pretty much been ruined by this one bad day however as you can see the growth for the past week was up about $63 with today not being included. Because today is so bad it’s unusually bad and uncharacteristically bad I use this data actually buy more of the stock that I was interested in to try to round out the portfolio a little bit so that’s my reasoning behind that. But let me go ahead and actually get into the portfolio breakdown. Now and tell you a little bit about it. So I had this portfolio situated for roughly one month as you can see the return over the one month period is 174 dollars. Now once again. Because of the drop today it is lower was about 220 or so before today’s drop was actually factored and so keep that in mind I’ve only really had this portfolio situated for around a month so it’s not doing too badly so far, and this is really just a straight growth portfolio more or less it’s nothing too fancy and I’m not using a fancy tricks or anything like that with this portfolio specifically so let’s go ahead and do a breakdown here and we’ll sort that to equity and. Yeah, let me go ahead and just kind of go through these so first we have VW oh and I have roughly one thousand one hundred and fifty four dollars worth of VW oh. Now this is the Vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets ETF I recently bought a little bit more of this one or two more shares recently. Because um. Because of the market downturn today and I believe there was a bit of a downturn last week or so during which I bought a couple more shares and I tend to do that I tend to just keep my eye on things in general and just make sure I watch how things are going. So you can see the total returns is 4.1 8% so far, my differentiated growth buying and selling has kind of helped with that some. But it’s not making a huge difference so far, the growth has honestly been pretty good overall so as you can see there. You know. not too high of equity. But reasonable 1154 dollars isn’t too bad next and that’s an emerging markets fund I’ll try to give a brief overview of what the funds actually are. But I’m going to be mainly talking about their performance in my portfolio and how they’ve been doing so far, so next we have s pH D which is the PowerShares SP 500 high dividend portfolio one year outlook on this one is really pretty good overall as I said total return is $8 $9 pardon me is point zero six percent so it’s nothing insane. But this is more of a dividend portfolio and. It really helps to round out the dividend aspect of my portfolio which as I said previously is used to make sure that everything. You know. falls within a certain margin of deviation which is I think important actually this one this one is pretty solid. Okay, I like this one so that’s SP HD I have about thirteen hundred thirty-five dollars of equity in that one then we have V ei which is the Vanguard MSCI ei Fe etf I believe that this is a european-based fund please correct me if I’m wrong. But that’s what I think it is total returns so far, is two point seven eight percent that’s really not too bad as you can see over the past year it’s performed pretty admirably once again after that we have X T which is the iShares exponential technologies fund you can see that this one really tends to fluctuate a lot on a day to day basis it’s more aggressive overall so today’s return is a loss of 25 bucks. But overall it’s still up 2.0 8% which isn’t too bad for the period that we’re looking at next we have one that’s one of the the larger allocations in my portfolio also next we have vo OG which is the Vanguard S&P 500 growth ETF you can see this one here about 125 bucks per share one your outlook on this one pretty good once again total return is nine dollars and six cents so far, you can see today has had a big impact on the vog fund which is costume issues. But I have about three thousand dollars of equity in this one so it’s one of my largest players in the portfolio which if it’s having a bad day my portfolio is sometimes having a bad day too. But I thought it was a good kind of backbone for the portfolio so that’s vo og moving along we have vti this is the Vanguard total stock market ETF for the United States markets not the entire world equity for this one is about twelve hundred and sixty six dollars total returns eight dollars and thirty nine cents so far, so not too bad once again. But unfortunately today’s drop heavily factored in and I did use today’s drop to buy a few more shares which I think should be helpful so anyway. You know. it’s like it’s unfortunate. Because I really want to make this article today and record it today and get it produced and everything. But of course today the market drops so I’m trying to explain my strategy and that’s why. You know. a bit of a dampers been put on the portfolio. But it’s still performing really well overall I think so next we have VB Vanguard small cap ETF twelve hundred and thirty seven dollars worth of equity in that one their total return on this one is eight dollars and fifty nine cents not too bad once again today’s return is really dragging it down which is disappointing those will come back up and I’ll be making more update articles on this topic of course one your return on this one is still really quite good overall equity value is is good also pretty solid decent little player in my portfolio and. Yeah, next we have V T which is the Vanguard total world stock ETF and why I say is so dramatically that’s. Because it’s the whole world market ETF conglomerated it’s a good fund overall I like it fifteen hundred dollars worth of equity and that one twenty two dollars returns so far, for the period I’ve held it one year growth is pretty good today’s return is down a bit. Because of course it is and then next we just have AMD bringing up the rear and I just have a few shares of AMD. Because I like to hold on to it today it did drop a bit. But I think AMD might rise again in the future so we’ll see. But anyway folks thank you so much for watching the article that’s going to wrap it up I don’t want to make this article too long. But I did want to give a fairly detailed explanation as to why my portfolio is the way it is and how its setup so anyway folks thank you for watching again tech crack house has a new twitter the the link pardon me is in the description below and if you want to follow that I’m doing polls and stuff all the time it’s very fun and exciting so anyway folks check that out thank you so much 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 EU all in the next article this has been Mike signing off.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the adult tech crack house today I’m coming at you again with another kind of portfolio idea that I’ve assembled and this one will I think kind of be interesting. Because it focuses on a dividend growth in dividend output and also growth like regular growth. You know. as stocks tend to do so it’s a bit of an amalgamation a good combination that rhymed. But anyway so what we’re actually focusing in on here is really like I said dividends more so than anything else and that’s why I named it the high roller I dip it into portfolio I thought it was a pretty adequate name. So this isn’t the highest yielding dividend portfolio that you can get. But when we look at the back tested performance here which actually is available and I won’t finance which is fantastic if you’re interested check it out the year today performance is 14% which is really pretty good. Now if you combine that with a average dividend yield of roughly nine percent that’s roughly 22 percent or so per year 23 or so percent I think. Yeah, 23 percent or thereabouts so looking at those two factors combined that’s actually pretty cool. Okay, that’s that’s quite nice I don’t really love portfolios that focus either wholly on growth or wholly on dividends I think that. You know. choosing one over the other can be a difference it can be a strategy if you’re going into retirement or something like that. But if you don’t have to pick and choose really. You know. why why pick and choose why not experiment with both. You know. dabble a little bit in dividends and growth overall and. You know. I have found that to be beneficial for myself in the past it’s made me. You know. a decent amount of money overall so pretty interesting to look at. Now if we look at the three year performance here. Okay, over the past three years the fund is predicted to have done pretty well. Now in 2016 it actually hit a slump here. But I’m shortly after the election period so to be expected although it looks like the recent performance is honestly quite good so I’m really interested to see how this actually works out. You know. there are no guarantees of course and. You know. it’s gonna be maybe a bit of a wild ride or more of a wild ride than I would like. But at the same time. You know. sometimes you need a wild ride right so I’m really interested to see how this plays out. Now it has 15 Holdings average expense ratios 0.91% per year which is around 1% which is a bit high in my opinion it’s a bit higher than I technically like. But at the same time it’s not all that bad point 9 one percent for. You know. all of this growth and all of these dividends being paid out is pretty good. Now these dividends also do pay monthly which is something to consider. Now if we select all we can just equalize allocations here are some options we can buff some of these up which. You know. will counterbalance things which isn’t necessarily what we want so we’ll keep that that the same. But anyway that’s the portfolio allocation. So you can see it’s pretty heavy on like 50 financed eaten vans stuff like that a lot of big dividend names here and actually let me go ahead and give you a show really quick or I’m just kind of guide you through this so we have Barings little short m FS intermediate income trust fit street finance Gladstone capital admin Claymore armored residential Eaton Vance Eaton Vance once again tax advantage first Josiah income PowerShares IV high income opportunities pemko MF s special value trust calamus and pemko once again so pretty interesting holdings here and. You know. I I’m interested in kind of comparing contrasting this maybe the other portfolio for dividends I have set up which focuses a little less on growth and more on dividends specifically I might do that let me know if you’re interested. But this is a basic high-roller dividend portfolio let me know if you want to put it if you want me to see if you want me pardon me if you want to see me put any money into this one I am interested in doing that the returns could be pretty good overall and if you invested. You know. a thousand bucks the net you roughly 250 bucks a year in growth which isn’t too bad theoretically so anyway I think that’s gonna do for this article folks thanks so much for watching keyboard the tech grant Council 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 tech crack house so a viewer slash commentary slash subscriber person recently asked me. You know. how could I invest $500 so I’m actually going to give you a quick rundown today. Now we’ll be looking at three ETFs and if you have any. You know. questions or comments or anything all the statistics for them will be listed in the comments below feel free to check those out and just enjoy the information and follow along I’m trying to make my articles a bit more concise and to the point. So I probably won’t be running through too many stats how can you earn ten dollars a month with 500 bucks up front. Okay, that’s a good question and actually in order to achieve this using dividends you would need an annual dividend yield of roughly 26% which is just nearly impossible to achieve. So, you know. achieving a $10 a month the return on a $500 initial investment is really difficult with dividends it’s extremely difficult. Okay, so in order to approach this $10 month goal will be looking toward stocks and ETFs that actually have good growth potential so remember nothing is guaranteed here the stock market is inherently risky. But we’re going to go ahead and take a look anyway so first things first we have MGK. Now this is the Vanguard mega cap 300 growth ETF and it has a 1 year growth so far, of roughly 20% which is really pretty good so MGK as you can see the stats are listed in the description below so that’s our first one here. Now pretty good overall and is a vanguard fund and it focuses mainly on growth so moving along the next fund is SCH G which is currently $64 per share ket is the Schwab u.s. Large Cap Growth ETF. Now you can see the one-year outlook on this one here is 19 percent growth so a little bit lower than the previous fund. But still not too bad overall. Okay, five-year growth is 107 percent so another large cap growth ETF and these actually do typically produce pretty good growth overall. So if you’re looking for steady growth these aren’t really a bad thing to look into so so far, the total annual return on growth is roughly 20 percent or so give or take probably 1% so moving along next fund is vo ng or Vanguard Scottsdale funds Vanguard Russell index I believe it’s something like that another high growth fund it’s a similar concept to the previous funds that I mentioned so as. You know. as was previously stated pretty good growth here 18 percent and honestly five-year growth is also pretty good at 104 percent so the average one-year growth return from all of these combined it’s roughly 20 percent per year. So if you had a $500 initial investment upfront that’s just shy of $10 per month. Now if we actually keep looking at this I’m going to go ahead and scroll down to my notes with the average one-year growth of 20% per year this isn’t too extreme and these keep in mind these ETS have a bit higher risk however between all of them they do have a pretty good beta of roughly 1.05 or so which is slightly higher than average market volatility. But it’s nothing extreme so relatively good volatility overall there so as the beta values show the growth here is is relatively tangible. Okay, so to achieve $10 a month of growth with a $500 upfront investment you would actually need around five hundred and seventy five dollars initially invested this isn’t too bad bur remember this is inherently risky so anyway folks I am trying to make my articles a bit shorter so feel free to check out the notes on this article the stats and everything down in the comments below and not comments down in the description man I just anyway folks have a good one thank you so much for watching I really appreciate it keep right here the tech crack house 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 of this has been Mike signing off.
What is up. ladies and gents welcome back to the tech crack house so today I will actually be answering another question basically from a user with the name of Ron Jeremy. Now I find this account to be very funny Ron Jeremy is their username they have a picture of the Ron Jeremy as their profile picture if you are familiar with him then he’s just kind of like he’s well known for acting and stuff which. Yeah, anyway so Ron Jeremy right pretty funny account so thanks thanks for the laugh that’s always good so they say I have a question if you have been investing direct deposits and round up for say a month and you then change portfolio without withdrawing from aggressive to conservative this is a regarding acorns for instance well you still maintain an aggressive portfolio and new investment amounts go toward the newly set conservative portfolio or does your hole permit portfolio immediately transfer into a conservative portfolio hope that makes sense so Ron Jeremy thank you for your question that question does make sense actually and it’s something that I’m sure people wonder about. So if you’re investing with acorns and you start with a certain account type say aggressive for example and then you want to switch into a conservative account hi that’s that’s something I’ve done. Okay, so basically what you want to do is just go directly to where you can change your portfolio on acorns and you select whichever one you want and you hit change. Now when you hit change or switch portfolio type or whatever the button says it will actually change directly to that portfolio whenever the funds are able to be sold and repurchased at the allocation that you have. Now Reese Pesa fied. So if you have conservative and you’re switching to aggressive and you want to make that switch you will be selling all of your conservative portfolio holdings and reallocating them into aggressive so basically you don’t keep funds in the predetermined. You know. the predetermined portfolio that you had the funds in if that makes sense everything gets moved to your to your new portfolio setup so it’s not a matter of having your old funds and conservative for example and having new money and aggressive it’s just switching the whole thing and then all of your new funds will still be put into your aggressive what all of your money will be in there regardless so interesting thing about doing this is you know. Because the funds are sold and repurchased. You know. sold is conservative and repurchased as aggressive they won’t always hold up in value. So it can be a bit dicey. Because acorns basically sells your funds when they want to and then revise the other funds type when it wants to also. So it can be an interesting way to kind of lose some money however I want to be too concerned about that if you really want to switch account types just feel free to jump into it and go ahead and try it out so when you do that on acorns it does totally reallocate all of your money into a different fund type. So I hope that answers that question thank you for your question ron jeremy it’s been an honor having you appear on the channel just bet that portfolio just gets me sorry not portfolio that profile what am i saying I’ve got portfolios on the mind anyway folks thank you so much for watching have a fantastic day and. Yeah, adios.
hey everybody welcome to profit copilot it make money here and today I’m gonna tell you how to build a high value brand website see I built my own website way back in 2004 Billy up to 4 million hits a month it was valued at 2 million dollars and this is the strategy mostly mostly of how I did it I did break some of these rules by still managed to do pretty well from it so the first one is to have a simple and consistent design make it easy to use nothing overly complicated keep the design visually attractive make it as thick as possible. But also make sure that it is easy to use secondly reduce the number of adverts on your site ideally you want 0 adverts. You know. you can have a few and that’s fine. But you see these websites that I’ve got like loads of adverts they are low value perceived low value brand websites so the third thing that you want to do is have good customer service make your customer service front and center and make sure that your customers can find help when they need to also in addition to that put your contact info on the website make sure that people can pick up the phone if they want to and give you a ring make sure that your address is somewhere on the site also use testimonials so display your happy customers on your site on your pages make it clear that you provide a good service and people are happy with your products or your services so the next thing to do is to display badges I’m talking about security badges media badges if you’ve been featured in a place awards that kind of thing and then in addition to that also if you can and it’s a little bit difficult. But if you can try and get some celebrity endorsements on your site. Now this worked out really well for me. Because I had quotes in the sidebar of one of my websites from people like david icke jon ronson noam chomsky these big figures in their industries and then one of the final things that you can do to increase the perceived value of your brand is to display your picture or pictures of your team with a little bit of a biography about the background and the history that kind of thing and it’s also good to throw in a bit of personality into it if you can so that kind of thing makes your biography a little bit more human and then finally the last thing that you really need to have a high value brand website is a secure checkout process. So you need that little padlock up in the browser hook the browser window you need that so that’s an SSL cert that you need they don’t cost very much. Now it stands for a secure socket layer and that’s military encryption on transactions over your website invest in one I think if you don’t have one Google will penalize you if you if someone is using incognito and chrome I think that’s right if you follow all these steps or do your best to follow the steps you will have much better chance of increasing the perceived value of your website and of your brand. So if you found this useful hit the thumbs up below subscribe to the channel and hit the bell icon. So you can more articles from me tomorrow thank you for watching guys take it easy.
it was going people it’s me Jeremih here and today I want to record article showing the results of our free Instagram traffic campaign and you sure you initially know you got 236 clicks so far, maybe $52 pure profit today all from free traffic using this program. Now I got to be honest with you the articles test on youtube or meant for YouTube this article right here is inside of private community look at the top of top of your screen he says a brand new property so basically what I’m at home right here it’s gonna be far better off onto. Because whatever i said on youtube is very different a little bit different than what I say. Because i can’t just give out the secrets of what we’re doing or it’s going to create too much competition and then the method of what we’re doing isn’t gonna work anymore alright so we’re doing against the ground for free free traffic completely. But we’re doing something completely different with it right we ended up and came up with an idea you set up these campaigns and we start testing testing testing testing and the results came out to be phenomenal action. All right, we didn’t spend like a lot of tests in each part just a few hours of testing. All right, and what we did. You know. I can’t really tell you what we started. You know. sunday i believe you see what was having like a $32 day down to the auc is at $52 day and like i said before the main goal is to get it up to a holiday and. But. You know. by friday like this all wrong and tomorrow I’m guessing his numbers can pull from 52 to Ireland 60 70 maybe 80 tomorrow um and then. You know. it’s gonna just continue to get up and. But here’s Ben here’s the thing i’m offering to show you exactly or whoa what he was doing and you got youtube. But instagram to get to results i make sure you the exact hour i’ll make sure your exact Instagram account i’m going to show you our exact methods for getting the traffic and how we do it okay. But. You know. i’m not you’re just gonna just give this away. Because this campaign always already proven me that it can make $52 and i feel pretty confident that this to me hurt obviously. So it already been proven to me that this works so I’m not just gonna just kill this one out there for free. Because if I do many people is going to be doing it and then the method is gonna get saturated and then competition is going to be very high for what we’re doing and less competition needs more money. All right, so. But I’m not going to be charging you like about her all the price like our 101 are. You know. bad and by the way our 101 is going to be down to a paradox or the next a few weeks into the first of January or week after in genuine. So if you want to get 101 it’s going to be just our knowledge. But anyway it’s not gonna be anything that’s been this is making it fixed two dollars a day if you apply exactly everything we’re doing i almost can almost feel like i can guarantee you look for it honestly so what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna give you the opportunity to give this for only fifty dollars so it’s just gonna be a Buy button around this article somewhere or page 120 by one or you could be able to get it to either you wanna watch it series articles or if you buy it tonight on imma be on the google hangout and you can get on a google hangout with me and and I can show you this accurately other than that. You know. you’re gonna have to pay the fifty dollars and comedy show you i’ma show you in science if you watch as you can see seeking allows this is just excretion see you allow the tracking software that show that shows me everything that’s going on with my campaign so I’m give you the ability to look inside rcpt left see our exact instagram account to look at our exact landing pages and to see everything that’s all alright and then. You know. I guess I’ll help you set it up if you want me to while we want to hang out you you by tonight I’m already on a google hangout tonight other than that. You know. if no one gets on i’ma just recorded articles and you’ll be able to buy you’ll be able to buy this campaign to dis method whatever all by itself as you can see. You know. I have for Instagram account for see I’m in place is bringing in so yes when bringing into a lot these bringing in a little bit. But you can see all that this oh. Yeah, and that’s that’s just about it. You know. you want to get this go ahead and sign up by it wherever tonight if you want and with the young google hangout and check it out is free and it’s free traffic and we don’t really need nothing to start only thing you need is hosted and i’m pretty sure with what we’re going to keep part by yourself people. Because only thing the hosting for is your landing pages other than that you don’t really need anything else this is just gonna be moment. All right, Sophie’s me Jeremih mount and hey go ahead and get it imma be on google hangout tonight you can buy the course tonight um I have it where. So you buy you get the google hangout link and get on and we can just talk about whatever i’m doing right. Now tonight if you don’t. You know. there will be articles recorded and I would just record what I’m not going by myself alright so please.
any point of view this means I’m right here and basically what I wanna do is show you must ask with Instagram it’s my first time actually doing Instagram stuff this is not Instagram as this is like just it’s free traffic from mr. realm and basically what we’ve been doing is running just I created three accounts you can see right here I created this account it only got 19 credits I created that one last and I’ve barely been promoting it like I have these other two accounts. But thing is we created on three accounts and you start using Instagram and start promoting all CPA offers with it. All right, they accounts what we did is basically we did like money and counsel a bunch of pictures and stuff in it and basically what we did is use a ton of hashtags a ton of like money screenshot pictures and start promoting like survey offers and stuff on max bounty and that’s initially what we did with with with these accounts and um. Yeah, we’re getting paid out $1 per version is really offer was like I said before I’m max bounty you can find it I can’t it’s not on Max Payne for me the offer isn’t on magic spelling for me the offer is serving 20 not gonna say this is like I always say you can promote survey junkie why does it log it happens is rejected on my experiment I use I use another sepia where I use a w-4 to pull this offer. But. You know. who’s going to pick it out like a dollar energy conversion and this is results after two days of promoting this offer with the hot light I can just call it’s family counts really only thing you got to do is create an Instagram account and post a ton I’m like money shots and stuff like that um and use hashtags heavily and follow and unfollow extremely heavily I. I mean follow a hundred people our unfun well I haven’t even started to unfollow the process. But you can follow a hundred people Albert using this method and just like back and forth back and forth it’s like dominate dominate this niche it’s basically. You know. the basal niche on Instagram and using mobile survey junkie was to offer our using and it’s complete free traffic. So this would be great for you guys that just got a lot of time has a computer. But doesn’t have any capital only thing I do is. You know. programmatic spending is on max Ronnie if you don’t have a max penny apply for w-4 and music instagrams to automate the process basically you create three Instagram accounts and you just upload photos first first of all your photos Tony photos with a ton of hashtags and baby and after you do that you just like follow or put your account in private. Because it’s like when I first grew account I put it on private and that helps like five times better put your account on private and then start following and on following people once they account and get up to probably like 200 followers you can make it public again if you want or you can keep it private and then you just keep doing the same thing follow at least a hundred people our 100 people our so and go over here to dogs I’ll show you so follow people our oh well I can say first first you need to do this step nine three three to four counts step to upload at least twenty to thirty money pits pictures per account step 3 meet private step 4 fine well justice I’ll start targeting problems basically fine accounts related and spam in game face off ok ok and step five you want to bookmark these accounts or write them down some we write a name down so I’m gonna put mark these alright step 5 followers counts. Okay, and so forth this is follow one hundred people per hour. Okay, I’ll help you per hour. Okay, and put all four basically on well don’t put the offer in don’t put a link in your bio until you have that right like 100 followers or 200 followers just to be safe. Okay, after I’m just write this down to followers after you have 100 to 200 followers put a link in about you. I think there’s a parade outside. Okay, okay I think I will have to it falls below. You know. bye see I’m really trying to think of everything safe for you guys like they were saying make sure to counter privateers make sure again. Okay, oh. Yeah, use a landing page so go over to um or better be step 6 actually 6 use a landing page is the page that’s what I’m using as I’m using landing page when instapage thinking oh that’s basically about it oh really that’s that’s all I did that’s all. You know. that’s really all that I did to be honest and I just keep following a hundred people per hour that’s really all I did for this process to actually make new results like this next within two days and three camps used by instagrams to put it on autopilot. But imagine if you have like. You know. 1015 accounts doing the same as that thing spamming I call the spam accounts is basically Instagram accounts that showing pictures of money and stuff like that and what you do is you just put it out there and just let it roll on Instagram and you will see convergence commit if you don’t have a lot of money gets to be a great method for you see my time is running out right here outside of that. Yeah, go ahead and do it and. Yeah, I hope you make some money and then maybe you can find my horse into some paid traffic if squadra my piece.
yes convened right here and this is part three on two for our Instagram CPA taste study and the last article I reported on Sunday and today it’s Tuesday and this is results we found here I go fifty bucks a day against the ground using two for Instagram account submission as you can see right here you can see no one can speak that. But I’m not going to show you course I attract even give a free traffic contract. But. Yeah, this is the fifty dollars a day go reach if you want to learn it there’s gonna be a link on this article where you can have access to going to our private music and I would recommend joining the private community to see initially more stuff that I give out and also the method that I use to give the exact method. Because in other articles I gave you panel somewhere I gave you guys gelatin of what we do. But there’s some other blue nifty ways that we start for virtually and drove a little bit more versions then you will normally see using that method alright and for that and for this what we’re doing I’m charging well basically just in this game we take it out and know I’ll be a success with this method the same way I do it wasn’t hard close in the hardest thing in the world and no it’s actually pretty easy. But I’m pretty sure I feel pretty confident that you can do the same thing same results you see we sent 234 clicks today and that crater that spectacle hollers all for free all offer free traffic in history and I’m pretty sure you can do same thing. Because this wasn’t artists is asking for easy and. Yeah, that’s it we get our goals think about something with Instagram and the mail is going to be pretty easy to do all the free nothing didn’t spend one dime on anything all of this for free and that’s a fantastic time functions. Yeah, I’ll be enjoy yourself inside there our group.
hey guys it’s Mike Mena here and thanks for stopping by so today we’re going to talk about how you can increase your revenue by saying the right goals for your website and how you can actually profit from cold traffic. But before we get into all that before we start let me give you an example of the end result of getting this stuff right. Okay, just have a look at this. Now these are actual stats from a website that we just set up a couple of days ago this is obviously Google Analytics and here we can see that we’re already getting over a thousand visitors to this website every day. Now this is a brand new website let me tell you about this. Okay, this is really interesting. Now before we did anything before we sell the website before we installed any things or published any content before we did anything the very first thing we did was to decide on what the traffic level should be so in this case for this particular website we decided that around 30,000 people a month would be a good figure to work with so that’s around a thousand people a day so we gave ourselves where we actually gives us a week to hit that target for this website so after a week we want it to be seen around a thousand people a day we actually smashed that target and we got there on day two so the day after the website went live which that hit that target and. You know. this is all organic traffic – which is kind of amazing right so as you can see we start sending traffic to the site. Now a couple of days ago so the bounce rate here is going to be fairly high and if we go down we can see which languages the traffic speaks so we see that 82% of the people who visit this website speak American English this is the most valuable type of traffic to have next we’ll see nine percent at UK English and then finally we see that 2 percent Canadian English. So this means that more than 90 percent of the people who visit here speak English and that’s very profitable that’s a very profitable type of traffic to have so we actually want a target was to get 70 percent of the traffic to come from just three countries the goal that we decided on was that at least 70% of the total traffic would come from the USA Canada and the UK so let’s confirm that at least 70 percent of the traffic is actually coming from those top three countries and here you can see that over 60% alone comes from the USA 11% from Canada and 7% comes from the UK. So if we add all this up again we’re smashing the target. Because we were seeing 80% of the traffic coming from these top three countries. Now you might be thinking what if all this is just the slick well to prove that goal setting is important I’ll show you another example in a second. But listen I could show you the traffic against a roof my flood ship website. But I’m not going to do that. Because I think well and. I think that would be kind of unfair. Because that site it’s been online for ages it gets millions of hits I’ve never spent a penny on advertising it’s even had its own TV show which is a lot less exciting than it sounds. But it’s unlikely that you’re going to have that kind of advantage so instead I’m only going to show you results from brand new websites. So you see what’s possible when you start setting goals to a new website I only want to give you realistic targets that you’ve got an actual chance of achieving it’s pointless me showing you millions of hits and then expecting you to replicate that from the word go it’s just not going to happen so. Okay, have a look at this site which is another brand new web site and this one is collecting stats with jetpack. Now I really like using jetpack. Because the data is right there inside the WordPress dashboard. But I do think it can slow down a blog so don’t have to explain this I don’t think so the target that we set for this website was again a thousand visits a day and again we smashed it. In fact, as you can see we frequently get more than four times the amount of traffic we expected so how did we do this well. It really does all start with setting the right goal. I mean think about it when you invest your time into making awesome content. But you feel proud of and that you feel passionate about you deserve something back from all that hard work right. Now the traffic sources don’t matter too much as long as it meets a certain criteria which I will go into whether you in a minute this is great. Because you can pull traffic from any place you like it means you can pull traffic from anywhere and the thing is not to get too hung up on any single traffic source. I mean we can get traffic from anywhere really. I mean social media from the press search engines from other blogs. It really doesn’t matter there’s loads of places we can get traffic. I mean getting traffic that’s the easy bit knowing what type of traffic exists what to do each type is the tricky thing. Now this is important. Because if you don’t get that right if you don’t set the right target then your website is just wandering aimlessly and that means it’s not getting the amount of traffic it needs it’s not getting the right kind of traffic it needs and it’s not making the revenue levels. But you want it to so the cool thing about this though. You know. it is up to you to set your own targets and that’s why we build websites and blogs and create content and sell products isn’t it so we can live life on our own terms and the websites we build are just a reflection of that. So you get to decide what kind of results you want so when you start saying goals. You know. where you’re going. You know. how much traffic you need. You know. what kind of traffic to get and. You know. how much revenue that will make for you. Now from this point forward I’m going to assume a few things. Okay, the first one I’m going to assume that. You know. who your audience is. I mean so many druggers can answer this question. Okay, and if you still don’t know who your audience is then just go have a look through the profit copilot articles that I’ve made and I’ll show you exactly how to find out who your audience is this party is important. Because if you think that your audience includes everybody that it’s a general nonspecific kind of audience or if you think that your blog will appeal to everybody then I’ve kind of got some bad news you’ll actually end up reaching nobody I mean. You know. the worst thing you can do is put content in front of someone who isn’t specifically interested in that type of content what happens is instead of attracting them to your website what happens is you repel that person from your website possibly forever I need to repeat that. Because I’ve seen some of you guys making this mistake and you don’t need to choose a single topic for your book choose a single topic and publish content that’s only about that topic if your blog is about technology don’t publish stuff about weight loss. Yeah, unless the some kind of angle that relates it to technology so keep your message consistent keep it constant and keep it tightly focused on one specific topic one area of interest. So if your vlog isn’t getting the kind of traction that you want at the moment then double check that you’ve got this fundamental step done right and. You know. exactly who you’re talking to so go watch my articles about it and your and you’ll get it fixed. Okay, so I’d carry on next I’m going to assume a few more things I’m going to assume that you have a website and you’re creating some form of awesome content and then I’m going to assume that you have an advertising budget even if budget is small. I mean this is probably how you drive traffic to your website and then finally I’m going to assume that you already have or you’re at least planning to have some kind of sales and. You know. some way to generate revenue from your website if you don’t have that yet then don’t worry we’ll go through all that stuff in a future article so with all that in mind if you recall I had a previous article where I show you the three layers the three levels of a sales funnel and I showed you how the top of the funnel is all about creating awareness it’s about pointing seeds introducing people to your brand to your content and to your message then I showed you the second stage the middle of the funnel and that’s all about how people will start looking for solutions to the problems they’ll be praising products and solutions and they’ll be looking at your stuff to be considering your products and then finally we have the bottom of the funnel the conversion stage this is where people become the much-needed buyers. Okay, so for each of these stages we have a different type of traffic. Okay, at the top of the funnel the very first layer we have cold traffic at the middle of the funnel we have warm traffic and then right down at the bottom of the funnel that’s where we have the much desired hot traffic. Now this isn’t anything new or groundbreaking. In fact, it’s the standard way that most things are done online. Okay, it’s a tried and tested formula that most people use most successful people use so that’s how we know it works right and. You know. me I only stick to the stuff that’s proven to work over a long period of time and that’s exactly what this is it’s proven to work so let’s dig a little bit deeper into the top layer at the top of the funnel. Because this is where you have the greatest and of exposure this is where your message will have the largest reach the largest number of people consuming it most bombers actually just live in this state and most uneven wear. But another level exists beyond this. Okay, so here we’re dealing with cold traffic that means most of the people who visit your website or seen your adverts don’t know who you are they’ve probably never heard of you or your business cold traffic is actually very important. Because it’s the lifeline of your business it’s the new blood that you’re putting into your business. Now listen I know that cold traffic isn’t as exciting as other types of traffic. Because it doesn’t generate immediate sales. But it is very important. Because we’re about it most of your revenue will dry up if you’re not reaching out to new people and bringing them into your business then you’re not getting fresh leads and you won’t make as many sales so eventually your business will stop growing. Okay, and listen if you have a new website or if you have new business then all of your traffic is going to be cold. So this stage of the funnel it’s all about creating awareness and seeding ideas so you’re creating awareness about your business you’re catching people’s attention and you’re giving them some kind of value you’re also letting your visitors know. But they might have a problem that you can help them with and when you start delivering value to your audience you start to build a relationship with them and you start to build trust with them. But a mistake that I’m seeing lots of people make and. You know. even people who should really know better people who’ve been at this stuff for a few years I’m seeing lots of awesome bloggers and awesome content creators pouring cold traffic on the middle of the funnel offerors and even on bottom of the funnel offers and this is a huge mistake listen yes if you’re sending coal traffic to a sales page and expecting people to buy from you straight away without getting to know you first then you’re setting yourself up for a bit of disappointment sometimes I hear that a traffic source doesn’t work. You know. for example and people sometimes tell me that Facebook Ads don’t work or that Google Ads don’t work and then when I look at the system that they put in place more often than not it turns out that they’ve got the stack wrong so that means they’re sending cold traffic to a sales page which of course isn’t going to work and then they blame Facebook or they blame whatever place they’re advertising on if you’ve done that or if you’re currently sending cold traffic to a sales page and not getting the results you want then just stop you’re not at the right stage of the relationship to ask for the sale yet it’s like walking up to a complete stranger and saying hey I know you don’t normally I know you don’t trust me. But please buy this ring it’s just not going to happen right so I’ve got a better way of doing things and the best way to approach cold traffic is to think of it as a way to introduce yourself. I personally use it as a way to say to people hey there my name is Mick and I’m going to show you how to make your website more profitable here’s what you’re going to learn for me that will let you do X Y Z so there’s actually three things at work here and I’ll tell you about each of them in a second okay. But first let’s figure out what the goals of cold traffic should be this is what you’re trying to achieve what you’re trying to accomplish from your campaign. Okay, I know I’ve just said the word campaign there and all that really is is just a way to engage someone and run them through a sea sequence of events that results with them buying your stuff or taking whatever action is that you want them to so since we’re talking about campaigns the truth is every stage of your funnel is. In fact, just another type of campaign and they’re really really easy to do if you’ve been following my articles for a while then you already know how easy they are to make so. Now we’re going to talk about the goals of your cold traffic campaign there are three steps here the first one Michael said is to introduce yourself then we pixel your audience and then finally we segment your audience I’ll go through each one of these in a bit more detail. Now the first goal is obviously to introduce your brand and deliver value we put your message in front of the people who want to hear it then you deliver value which builds trust and establishes you as an authority like we’ve already said. Now the second goal is to deliver a pixel to your audience that means when someone visits your website they’ve already expressed some kind of interest in you right so we use a small piece of code don’t worry about the cold it’s just a copy and paste piece of code it’s really simple to do and it lets you re-engage people after they’ve left your website. So you just paste that into your website so how it works is let’s say that someone visits your website and they read a blog post you can then run ads on social media that will show up for that person. So you take the cold traffic and then you pixel them you send them a pixel through your site. So you can then continue the conversation with them later on even if you’re not running ads at the moment it’s still a good idea to pixel your audience. Because Facebook still collects that information and it can give you a better idea of who your visit is at and what they’re interested in. Okay, so the third goal is segmentation. Now this is really clever. Because you’re targeting the specific interests of your audience this is really powerful it works like this imagine that someone reads one of your blog posts and your blog. But say let’s say the post is about house training a labrador dog let’s pretend that your website is about dog training and your visitor is reading a blog post about Labradors we. Now know that they are specifically interested in Labradors so we look at dog training as the broad topic and web lures could be sub neat. Now this allows you to make specific offers to that person another example could be well let’s say you have a technology blog and it’s all about bones so false could be the broad topic and you have subtopics like cam iPhone and Android. So this formula you’re introducing yourself first then delivering value then your pixely your audience. So you can we engage with them later on and then you’re segmenting the audience. So, you know. the specific interests. So, you know. what you offer to make them later on right so that’s incredibly powerful right. Now we need to know what to say to the cold traffic we know we need to know what to talk about we need to know what kind of offers to make by offers I don’t just mean what products sell them I also mean blog posts and PDF reports and articles and well anything else to value. But you can offer them this is important. Because if if it’s not something that’s of interest to you visitor no matter how great your advert is no matter how great you are getting traffic none of that will matter. Because your visitor just won’t respond to it so I’m going to give you a list of the most common types of content to offer cold traffic so the first one it’s also the most obvious and that’s a blog post and this can be educational or practical it can help them to solve a problem or show you how to do something at this stage you’re not asking them to do anything yet you just giving them something of value upfront without asking for anything in return. So this type of content is great to give them upfront. Because it helps them to see you as an authority ok the second type of content we can deliver to cold traffic is social media so we can post a social media update just as a promoted post on Facebook that’s enough and it’s a great way to show the personality of your business and really speak to your target audience they are also great ways to grab attention then we’ve also got quiz and surveys both awesome to give to coal traffic. Because they get people interested and then finally these lead magnets so we can give these away in exchange for email addresses. So you give them something that they want something that’s generally of help to them and then they give you the email address so I’ll be kind of cautious about using lead magnets at this stage. Because sometimes they’re better used on warm traffic has posted cold if you lead magnets they can be used for both cold traffic and warm traffic so they’re ok if you need to generate leads quickly. But you will usually get better results with wrong traffic this can obviously vary from each to neech. So if your business is b2b then you might be better off with using the lead magnet up front. It really does vary I’ve personally had good results with offering lead magnets first. So it might be something that you want to split test for yourself. Now some markets will respond really well to these so do consider it so to help you really understand this process let’s have a look at an example here we’ve got a Facebook ad thrive themes. Now I love these guys they really inspire me I really like this style. So this is one of the ads that I see from time to time in my newsfeed and as you can see it’s just a normal ad that links to a article they’ve made they’re just giving valuable content and building a relationship that way it’s a short ten or twelve minute educational article really simple stuff right of course they encourage visitors to go further into the funnel on this page they invite people to subscribe to the mailing list. But at this stage of the frontal at the top of the funnel I would guess that this content is also being used to pixel traffic so they can start selling to the traffic later on. Okay, here’s another example for you and this one is from copywriting course and another company. But I’m happy to endorse. Because they do awesome stuff and again this is a straightforward Facebook ad and this one also links to a page full of content and establishes trust that way right one final example just to demonstrate the point one last time here we can see a Facebook ad from active campaign which is another company that I have great respect and admiration for and as you can see they have links to a page full of content that delivers massive value of. Okay, so all these companies have a few things in common dami they’re all industry leaders they’re all highly trusted and respected and they all deliver value first before asking for a sale well. Okay, then so. Now. You know. how to benefit from coal traffic. You know. it’s the starting point for most websites. So, you know. how to embrace it. You know. how to use it to your advantage so know who your audience is and no matter how you’re driving traffic to your website to your blog decide on a realistic number to aim for. So you want to keep your traffic level somewhat consistent and then you have some basic figures to work with that will allow you to work out your revenue so then we’ve got the three steps to engage call traffic which is to introduce yourself while delivering value which in turn builds trust and then you pixel your audience. So you can flow up with them later on and then lastly you segment your audience so you’re giving the right offers to the right people the right kind of content to provide to cold traffic so blog posts social media updates articles surveys and quizzes all work really well and then we’ve got lead magnets which can be used to. You know. cautiously and then finally I gave you some examples of how leading companies manage their top of the funnel strategies so you’ve. Now seen how thrive themes do it how copywriting courses and how active campaigned of it. Okay, that’s a lot of stuff isn’t it so you’ve probably got some fresh ideas. Now add some fresh motivation new inspirations so I’ll call it a day for the moment. So you can go and get rolling with this stuff and start seeing some awesome results.

Now and you will get more articles that will help you to increase your profit online so today I’m talking about subliminal messages and this is really controversial let me say something about subliminal messages it’s mostly a hoax or getting to why in a second. But I’m doing this article really to test the waters when it comes to psychological marketing. Because that’s the area that I am most interested in all the other stuff like generating traffic writing sales copy and all that it’s fantastic I love it. But when it comes to marketing the real draw for me is a psychology and the psychological aspect of creating messages that resonate with people on a deeper level today I’m going to talk about an ethical form of subliminal advertising called perception without awareness I’ll tell you about that in a second. But most of what we know about subliminal messaging is a hoax. Now in 1957 a chap called James Vicary claimed that by flashing images on a cinema screen he was able to increase the sales of coca-cola and popcorn by 57% and then I think it was in 1962 he revealed that it was a hoax. But the whole subliminal messaging thing was just the fabrication. But that didn’t stop other people from running with it and writing books about it and. In fact, in the 1970s the United Nations declared subliminal messaging a major threat to human rights so. Because of those negative connotations researchers. Now approach subliminal advertising from a different point of view and they call it P W a perception without awareness and this has solid data solid evidence to support the fact that people can be influenced without them realizing it so I’ll give you a really good example researchers did a fascinating experiment in a wine shop they found that on days when they played French music the total sales of French wine increased by around 65% and then they repeated the experiment. But for German wine so they played German music and on those days the sales of German wine increased by 83% and that’s pretty conclusive evidence that proves that we are susceptible to subliminal influence at least on some level that said we can’t make someone do something that they don’t want to do. But we can tip the scales in a certain direction just a little bit if the prospect has already decided that they want to take a particular type of action so for example you can’t make somebody hungry. But you can influence the choice of food that prospect chooses if they are already hungry you see how that works so I’m gonna tell you how you can use this in a second the important thing to know is to think in terms of senses and when you engage someone’s senses you can influence the outcome of their actions remember the days of digital marketing when you had a guru on the beach pointing to his luxury home that overlooks the sea on the cliff and that wonderful view well. I think that the days of those types of articles and those sales messages are over. Because it’s too obvious and it’s too cheesy. But if we take the essence of why that works we can then apply that to a multitude of situations across practically every niche and we can get as creative with it as we like or we can really dial it back and have it very subtle I will say as soon as someone becomes aware that you are engineering the environment they’re in or the multi-sensory experience if you draw obvious conscious focus to a subliminal it will no longer work so how can you use this well this is really up to you and your own creativity don’t do anything that you’re uncomfortable with I believe that this is perfectly ethical. Because when you go into a supermarket and you get the nice smell of bread that’s not an accident so retailers have been using this technique for decades and only. Now our we digital marketers discovering ways that we can utilize this online. But how can you do this well it could be something as simple as creating a subconscious link between you and your favorite superhero for example or if you want to imply that you are maybe friends with your prospects you can do that by the environment that you’re in and carefully chosen items may be placed in the background or clothes that you’re wearing might convey a certain message as soon as you draw attention and focus to that subliminal it no longer works. So it is completely up to you as a grownup as an adult to decide what is best for you and your sales message if you want to use this I completely understand I have used these techniques in my own articles in the past and I have seen fantastic results. So it is entirely up to you if you want to use this technique and to what extent so thank you for checking this out hit the like button below and don’t forget to subscribe to the channel hits a lot of notification belt and you will get another article from me tomorrow and that will help you to get more independence and freedom through online entrepreneurship.

hey guys welcome to profit co-pilot it’s macmaine here and today you’re going to learn one of the most profitable sequences that has ever been developed in the history of online marketing. So this formula is great. Because it delivers absolute value to your audience while maximizing your revenue you see a few days ago a friend of mine asked me if I could recommend a good email sequence. So I thought it’d be cool to share it with you guys too so today is all about strategy and turning your subscribers into customers and I’m going to show you the exact steps that you need to take the process to take someone who doesn’t know much about you actually buying your products ok so check this out have a look at this this is the master plan and I know it looks complicated. But don’t worry it’s all very simple when we break it down so let’s go ahead and dive in let’s check this out ok and I’m going to assume that you’re doing a few things ok so first I’m going to assume that you building an email list and you’re using some kind of lead magnet so some kind of freebie to entice people to join the email list I’m also going to assume that you’re creating content and you’re selling at least one product so the tools that we need to do this out obviously we need some way to collect email addresses. So, you know. and also responder is going to be essential then you don’t need some web pages and. You know. there’s actually only three types of page that we need. Now I’ve color-coded these pages for you. So you can see which is which ok so hopefully it was helpful to you first thing we need is a lead capture page so that’s a squeeze page and that can be a blog post too as long as it has an opt-in form on it so that people can subscribe and that’s absolutely fine so I’ve color-coded this green ok and then we need a content page. So you can deliver valuable content to your subscribers. Now this can have article on it it can have article and a common way to use these pages is to use it as a Thank You page or a download page for you free ebooks. You know. it doesn’t really matter as long as it delivers valuable content. Okay, I’ve also color-coded this one as blue and then finally the last thing we need is a sales page so people can buy your stuff and I’ve color-coded these pages as red that’s it just 3 types of page. Now we can rename them as anything we like and we can try to make things sound fancier than. It really is. But everything we do everything just comes down to these three simple pages so that’s a squeeze page a content page and a sales page nothing too complicated right it’s all fairly basic stuff and you probably already have all this in place anyway right. So it works like this this is how you turn your subscribers in to customers ok. Now you’re probably already sending traffic to a squeeze page or to a blog post that has the opt-in form above the fold button the top portion of the page ok so your visitors hit the page they subscribe to the mailing list and straight away the very first day they receive an email with a link to the freebie that you promised them ok so they click on that link which takes them to a download page and then they’re added to the rest of your email sequence on the following days ok so. Now here’s where it gets really cool we’ve got. You know. loads of different ways to do this. But here’s a way that has been proven to work consistently. Okay, so the download page does two things one it gives them the thing that you promised them. So it delivers the content secondly it gives you the opportunity to send them to a sales page so on this page you can make a special offer something like the massive discount or a special product that they can’t get anywhere else. So you have the chance to make a one-time offer. Now there’s a couple of things that you need to know about one-time offers the the offer shouldn’t be for your main product it should be for a completely separate product that will complement the main one this is where a lot of people tend to screw up they offer a discount on the main product so don’t do that keep it separate. Okay, instead just create a low ticket item that you can use to liquidate the cost of your advert. Okay, that means you’re using the one-time offer to cover the cost of your advertising which means this traffic you gain hasn’t cost you a penny. Okay, so you’re effectively building an email list for free okay. Now another name for this type of folk if something is called a tripwire it’s a low price product that’s an impulse buy. But listen most people won’t buy from you at least at the start. Okay, that’s fine so we need a way to turn those nose into a yes oh we follow up with them through the email sequence up on day 2 we send them another piece of valuable content. Now it has to be actionable and it has to give them specific results quickly and they select your prospect see that. You know. you are knowledgeable and if they follow you then they too can achieve some great results. Now on this content page you’ve got a couple of options and the first one is you can just give them the content and nothing else you should use this content to build desire for your main product a good way to build desire is to let your customers know that something is coming their way. But they can’t get the hands on it yet so just mentioning that your product will be available in a couple of days is a great way to build anticipation and desire and. You know. this is. Now the standard product launch sequence Jeff Walker the first web entrepreneur to make a million dollars in a day well he used this sequence to do it and thousands of people have replicated this ever since. Okay, another way of doing things know what it is could be to add an upgrade button so that links to a sales page where they can buy the full product straight away so they don’t have to wait until the end of the sequence until the end of the campaign. Okay, if you can give them a chance to upgrade to your full product some people will get so much value from your free stuff that they will buy your main product immediately. But other people will need to get to know you a little bit better before the buy so I’ve used both of these methods and I think. You know. It really comes down to personal preference the results are kind of the same so on day three it’s just like the previous day. So you deliver another piece of valuable content and if you’re not using an upgrade button then use this as an opportunity to let your subscribers know that they can buy your product tomorrow so use it as another opportunity to increase the desire increase the tension increasing anticipation for your main product. Okay, so on the fourth day it’s time to make a direct sales pitch here you explicitly ask for the sale you’ve been given value for the last few days and. Now it’s time to get something back. Now. I mean besides the satisfaction of helping people which is I’m sure you’ll agree ultimately more rewarding ultimately more motivating. But hey you need to eat right. So this email has a link to a sales page where they can buy your product. Okay, so looking at what we’ve got so far, well it’s all really straightforward stuff right and here we’re just using three content pages and then a sales page nothing to come. Okay, this type of campaign is actually called a linear campaign and it’s the most widely used sequence. Because it’s one of the easiest once this helping it also known for producing amazing results and it delivers value to your market in a very cool low-pressure way. So if we wanted to we could stop here and call it a day. But. You know. me and I am going to include a bonus strategy for you. Okay, this next tip is going to help you to dramatically increase your profit. In fact, this strategy has skyrocketed amazon’s revenue by around 35%. Okay, at the point every sale you can offer the customer an optional extra it’s a bit like asking if they’d like fries aback and it’s called an upsell and it works so well. Because the customer is already in the mood to buy they’re in a feel-good state of mind. So it makes sense to offer them something extra that will benefit them at this stage and you can also offer an upsell right after they grab your liquidator product. You know. at the point of every sale we can offer an upsell. Now although around for extent of the people who purchase will accept your upsell. You know. if it’s relevant to their initial purchase that still leaves us with a massive seventy percent who decline and that’s where the down sell comes into play. Now that’s usually a less expensive version of the upsell a slimmed down version. But not the entire product it’s important that you don’t just discount the upsell. Because. You know. that’s a quick way to win trust and it’s not really fair on 30% of people going ahead and bought from you so keep this as a different product maybe it has less features than the upsell product. Okay, and as you can see both of these upsells and down sells they’re really just sales pages nothing more complicated than that. Okay, and both of these well they lead to the Thank You page where your customer gets all the stuff that they purchase and really that’s just another content page and also. You know. something about every page that the subscriber sees every page has some kind of call to action on it every interaction we’re asking them to do something it could be to share your content it could be. You know. to buy stuff it doesn’t matter we’re always asking them to take some kind of action. Okay, right I’m sure you’ll agree that this system is incredibly powerful and we still haven’t done anything too technical or too complicated every okay. So I think I’ll wrap things up for today guys I hope you found this to be immensely useful and use it to profit and if you have found it useful then you might like my other articles and you can get them when you go to profit copilot calm for slash subscribe and then jump on to their mailing list.

What is 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 article alright ladies and gentlemen today I want to talk with all of you about how you can earn more money with Penny Stocks. Now this isn’t really an insanely. You know. hyped up article or anything it’s going to discuss a couple of pretty reasonable things that I think a lot of people should really consider before they start buying penny stocks. Now I do have other articles on penny stocks and I have a whole separate channel dedicated to stock trading and stocks and the stock market in general called the tech stock house the link for it is in the description. So if you like stocks go ahead and check that out I highly recommend it and no content from here is double posted there or anything it’s all fresh it’s all new it’s all exciting. But anyway folks let me go ahead and give you a few tips on how I avoid losing money when I trade penny stocks a lot of people are currently downloading the Robin Hood app and I think for that reason there are probably a few new people probably watching this if you are new I hope this article helps you and let me go ahead and get started so when you trade penny stocks. Okay, when you trade penny stocks you need to avoid hype that is one of the biggest recommendations that I can actually make for you avoid hype avoid hype okay. Now when you look at penny stocks on Robin Hood you typically only find a few that are very very inexpensive which is good. Because very very inexpensive penny stocks tend to fall prey to pretty. You know. diabolical I suppose pump and dump schemes. So if you are familiar with a pump and dump scheme a pump and dump scheme is essentially where somebody buys a lot of a penny stock many many shares of penny stock such as community health systems cyh Hz that’s the ticker and then essentially once they are holding a couple hundred dollars or a couple thousand dollars or a couple hundred thousand dollars of the stock they essentially start disseminating messages to communities on the internet. You know. by calling people by calling home phones cell phones etc and they start saying hey hey buddy. Yeah, your about that a community health health systems huh it’s gonna go big it’s going to explode the next week just watch just watch it will it will trust me it’s it’s gonna happen they might leave comments on YouTube channels they might do all sorts of stuff to essentially convince the public that the stock is gonna go big and then they sit back and they wait when a penny stock appreciates in value. You know. to a certain degree so so much so that the person who initially started the pump and dump scheme is satisfied with the price of the stock that person will at that point and dump their shares of the stock they will sell off and they will make a ton of money. Okay, say for example they convinced people to even raise the price of the stock to one cent per share not even ten cents to one cent per share they could make a lot of money just by doing that so they’ve dumped they’re out they made a ton of money however the people that bought into the stock that were convinced by this all-knowing individual are. Now out a lot of money. Because the value of the stock wants such a large majority shareholder leaves will drop significantly. Okay, which will result in a huge huge loss and a lot of penny stocks which are extremely cheap. You know. below one cent per share tend to fall prey to this. Because even my new price swings like I said can have a huge impact on how much money someone might be able to make so look out for that. Okay, seriously look out for that if you see comments on YouTube where people are saying hey I just found this penny stock it’s gonna go big in the next week they are probably someone who’s trying to pump and dump do not buy the stock that they recommend do not. I swear to God do not. Okay, seriously don’t don’t do it I know you might be tempted never never follow their advice. Okay, it’s usually BS and they are probably using it to aggrandize their own wealth so anyway on Robin Hood you might also see some very very inexpensive penny stocks that have the word warrant listed after them these are essentially issued by a company direct-to-consumer and I will probably be making more articles on warrant stocks on my second channel the tech stock house. But probably not too much in this article I I don’t want to really cover them too much they are different from regular stocks and you can usually find them for cheap. I would say go ahead and avoid those for. Now if you are new what I would really recommend. Okay, what I would really recommend for all of you if you want to get into penny stocks and you don’t want to spend much money on stocks find stocks that are inexpensive. You know. under 5 bucks a share that are still good or at least decent ok for example here we have Zynga Class A common stock. Now Zynga does a lot of work with app development they’re a pretty successful company and their stock is only three dollars and 59 cents per share that’s pretty inexpensive they’ve grown by 41% over the past year over the past five years they’ve grown by 36% still. Okay, let’s go on here to bio c bio see that’s the ticker bio acept Inc is the the company’s actual name. Now this is a biopharmaceutical company however these companies typically follow cycles related to hype. But their hype that is essentially put in place by the industry. Okay, so a biopharmaceutical company might develop a drug successfully and spike. You know. maybe 20% for the week or it might rise by 7% for the day as we see here and then it’ll probably decline I wouldn’t really recommend these. You know. for penny stock investors too much either. But if you can figure out their patterns which once again I’ll be covering these more on the tech stock house you might be able to do pretty decently next we have glue this is similar to Zynga. Okay, up pretty well over the past year 41% and still really inexpensive next we have my size different company down pretty bad for the past one year. But over the past month they’re up 58%.

nobody likes being sold to right the second that your website visitors or your email subscribers think that there’s a sales pitch coming they switch off they run for the hills right so how do you sell without being salesy without being high P and without being sleazy I’m gonna give you a seven step process to help you take somebody who’s never met you has never heard of you doesn’t know anything about you I’m gonna show you how to take them from that point of view to desperately craving more of your stuff so today you’re going to learn how to sell with ninja level stealth 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 we’re taking a lesson from one of Frank Kern’s training courses I’m going to give you the seven steps to selling without being salesy without being weird or sleazy or using hype I’m going to show you how to make people receptive to your sales messages and even make them thankful for receiving those messages step one is to offer them helpful advice for free thank them for the interest and then offer helpful free advice. Now it doesn’t matter where in the process you offer this advice you can do it in a sales page if you are – you can offer the free advice in a squeeze page inside a lead magnet inside the PDF report itself inside a article in a consultation core whatever the medium is that you’re using is fine it doesn’t matter. But what does matter is the language that you use so an effective way to do this is to create a comparison between two identical things or situations and one of those things achieves more than the other and you create the comparison between both and then you offer to show your prospects or you lead how it was done then step two is to explain the benefits of your help. So you really want to layer the benefits here really bring them out and layer them thick and fast you might want to say something like I’m happy to show you how to make products that practically sell themselves that cement your credibility and your authority while increasing your bottom line and I think for best results if you have three sentences with three benefits in each sentence that is a really good structure to layer these benefits and then step 3 we’re going to tell them why you’re helping them and this is where you would reveal the catch if there is a catch either way you want to focus on the why you see at this stage your prospects will be a little bit suspicious they’re going to wonder why you want to help them or what the catch is so here you absolutely need to be honest and transparent you might want to say something like I’m offering you this. Because I have 20 years experience and if you find value in it then there’s a chance you’re going to buy my more advanced training at some point in the future so here you’re not really selling them anything right. Now Allison they’re going to appreciate your honesty. Because you separate yourself from every other salesperson out there and step 4 is to remove the fear of salespeople or certainly remove the fear of you. So you make them a promise you reassure them that you’re not going to pitch to them all the time you might want to say something like I promise I won’t spam your inbox with promotions I will only ever send you the stuff that I believe will be of interest and of benefit to you. Now at this stage they are still going to be unsure of you and that’s. Okay, so we combat that in the next step step 5 we’re going to make an irresistible offer we’re going to bribe them. So you might want to say something like if you feel like I have wasted your time or not delivered on my promises then I will give you X Y or Z whatever is relevant to your niche whatever is desirable to your prospect it can be money it can be services you offer a guarantee remember we’re not selling anything here we’ll just promise in information at this stage and you promise that if you don’t deliver on those promises then you will either work for free give them the service free or you will take out your checkbook and give them some kind of compensation for wasting their time. Now this is irresistible the ball and it’s gonna take some guts from you. Okay, and that’s why so few people do this. Because it takes big balls to do this stuff. But when you display this kind of confidence in yourself and your service and your products your prospects will have a lot more confidence in you this is a very powerful psychological technique and then we have step six FOMO fear of missing out and this is another powerful psychological trigger. So you start to take away the offer you make it a little bit more exclusive and you kind of increase the barrier to entry ever-so-slightly and you do that by making a very specific criteria about the kind of people you are willing to work with. So you might want to say something like I can’t help everybody this isn’t for everybody this is only for people who have been in business with two years and have an email list of 50,000 subscribers. Now this strategy immediately protects you against the time wasters out there and it also proves that you’re not just another salesperson that you have integrity and it also boosts your own authority and listen this is really clever. Because it turns the tables you. Now have your prospects qualifying themselves to you and. Now we have the final step step seven this is the call to action. Now that they’ve qualified themselves to you that they’re intrigued they want the irresistible offer you tell them how they can get it. So you might want to say something like here’s what you do next if you want to learn more about this click the button below and fill in the form as soon as I receive your details I will set you up with a detailed report. Now at this stage you can ask them to do pretty much anything you like. So you can ask them to schedule a call to watch a sales article whatever you like you’ve reversed the sales process and.

hey everybody welcome to profit copilot in full Technicolor today. So this channel is all about helping you to get more independence and freedom through your website or your email list. So if you have one of those you are in the right place so hit the subscribe button and you will get more articles from me just like this one which is going to help you increase your profit online so today I’m talking about an NLP technique called loops and we can use these to increase your conversion rates increase engagement with your audience and it makes it easier for you to embed hidden commands in your sales copy so I’m gonna tell you all about loops and how you can use them. But first how do they work well I’m gonna give you an actual example in a few minutes. But first well we’ve actually got two types of loops that you can use I’ll tell you more about those in a second. But loops how they work well they really pull readers in or listeners or viewers and then they keep them interested and engaged with your content how they work is they really put your audience into a minor state of trance and that is that’s not as complicated or as weird as it sounds. In fact, we go into – states of trance multiple times every day often when we do things on autopilot for example when you tie your shoelaces a lot of that routine that ritual that you do is done on autopilot and therefore you go into a very very slight trance during that procedure during that action so we can use loops in a similar way to hook people in get them into a very minor state of trance and. Because they’re in a state of trance to some degree they’re suggestibility levels have increased and that’s how we can embed commands so efficiently. Now I’m actually gonna show you how to make your own loops in this article. But I’m gonna pretty much guarantee that you have already seen these loops in action think about your favorite TV shows think about the cliffhanger ending of these big TV shows they leave you in a state of suspense and curiosity you have this desire for closure that in itself is a loop they don’t finish telling you the full story they keep you in a state of suspense. So you will tune in the next week and that’s the sole purpose of cliffhangers they’re actually NLP loops. But as I mentioned a second ago we’ve actually got two types of loops at least two types we’ve actually got loose and then in this article I’m going to talk about nested loops. Now these are stories within a story and they really take your prospects or your audience on a journey and they’re really good for transitional content. So you can even use them to move your prospects through emotional states so maybe your prospects are in a state of mind where they don’t believe something is possible they are in a negative state of mind where they see that something is not possible for them to achieve you can use NLP loops and nested loops to transition them from that mindset to a mindset where they know it is possible and they believe they can achieve the thing that they want to. In fact, if you have a look at most stories most films books fiction books they they use a three arc story and have actually covered the three our story in a previous article if you’re interested in that it might be worth going to check that article out a lot of stories use the nested loop structure and that is to make sure that the audience becomes engaged with the story and they commit to it on a subconscious level and then they finish the story they get to the end so we can use the same thing in our storytelling or in the content that we create for our audience and you can use it in sales copy in article in emails in blog posts wherever you are creating content you can use the nested loop structure which I will show you how to do that and how to put that into action in a second. In fact, I’m going to give you an example script that you can use. But first to do this properly you have to know what your audience wants and you have to know the journey they need to take. So you need to know what kind of results they want to obtain from your content and then you can use that knowledge to transition them from A to B to C to D to wherever they need to go so how do you start with the starting point with using nested loops well you can start with a promise list the benefits the things that they will achieve if they commit to consuming your story or your content. So you give them a big promise an end result goal at the very beginning something that they are aiming for and then you can move into how or why it works and maybe provide examples for them and then you move into the actionable content the conclusion the end result. Now that is a very simple three act story that you can use to structure your content I’m actually going to show you a little diagram that I’ve made here. Okay, so I’ll read out the statement first I’ll show you how to XYZ and that will be something cool for your audience. But first and then we’re going to loop to I’ll give you an example in a second. But here’s how to XYZ and then we’re going to loop three and tomorrow I’ll show you X Y Z a good example of this could be. So this is a very quick very loose structure that I’ve just come up with literally a few seconds ago so I’m going to draw out how this works and I’m going to give you the diagram here so obviously this opens the loop this. But first to a second loop and then this part closes the first loop when we’re going to loop three we open up another loop and then we’re finished by closing the second loop and that’s how it’s done. So you see how that flows the structure of that it’s very simple once we see it all drawn out in this diagram so there you go I hope you found this useful if you have hit the like button below and subscribe to the channel you’re gonna get another article like this from me tomorrow and that will help you to improve your website and your email list it will help you to boost your profit and get better results all over so thank you for watching I hope you found this useful have a fantastic day and I will see you again tomorrow.
hey guys welcome to profit copilot it’s mcmean here and as you can probably tell there things are looking a little bit different this time around so as you probably know I haven’t been doing article for the last few weeks and that is. Because I’ve been building this free training course for my email list and I’ve been. You know. stove into it and delivered an enormous amount of value and show them how to set up a business that adds value and contributes something positive towards people’s lives so I’ve been really busy with that and also hmm excuse me a few weeks ago I got an email from someone and I’m not going to embarrass them by naming them. But they said something really interesting and that was that. Because the way I was shooting my articles using. You know. expensive lighting systems and a nice backdrop and all that kind of stuff they thought that they couldn’t get involved in any shooting article. Because of that. So I kind of thought well if that’s gonna hinder people and. You know. what all the the setup and all the time going into that stuff isn’t it’s a very productive for me. So I thought. You know. why don’t I just shoot articles in a way that anyone can can shoot articles which is just. You know. a computer and right. Now the only lighting I’ve got going on is from my monitors let me know what you think is the the black and white thing working for you. You know. I chose black and white. Because I don’t really see that many people doing black and white and. You know. I kind of want to stand out in any way that I can so let’s get down to the real meat of this article which is gonna be about Facebook advertising. Now I was with a friend and. You know. what it’s not the first time I’ve heard it. Okay, he described Facebook as a complete waste of money. All right, and I’ve heard it before and I’m gonna talk you through how you can make Facebook a profitable investment for you so maybe you have tried this. Okay, everybody tries it like this the first time around maybe even the fifth time around. You know. we all do we all lose money on Facebook at the beginning so maybe you’ve done this maybe you have got a product or a an affiliate offer or something that you’re going to promote. So you create a Facebook ad and you send the traffic from Facebook directly to that advert and they don’t convert they don’t they either don’t hopped into the email list or they don’t buy the product. So you you can lean naturally we’ll assume well Facebook to waste the time and then forget about it and continue to look for an alternative. But that’s kind of the wrong way to do it so to make Facebook advertising effective what we got to do is create actually three ads. Okay. You know. that talked an awful lot about sales funnels and we’ve got top of the funnel middle of the funnel and bottom of the funnel well what we do is we create an advert for each phase of that funnel and we also create create a piece of content for every phase funnel so the first step is to create an awesome blog post that tackles someone’s problem maybe it helps them realize that they’ve got a problem that needs to be solved you give them some information on on what they need to do in order to solve that problem all you doing at this stage is advertising that blog post and then on Facebook and then they click through and you pixel them. So you have you the Facebook pixel installed on every page of your website so the next time they visit Facebook they’re presented with your second advert and only the people who read your blog post see this advert and that directs them to the squeeze page where they can opt in for the lead magnet. Okay, once they’ve done that their third campaign the third Facebook ad advertises the product that you’re selling so that’s how you walk people through a sales funnel using Facebook Ads and there’s really nothing more complicated to it than that so that’s the basic structure of how you do it. Okay, so hope that this has been helpful to you I hope it’s giving you new some inspiration and encouragement so maybe reconsider using Facebook Ads again. Because I know just how effective they can be when when it’s done right hopefully you. Now know how to do it right. Okay, so I’m just going to leave it there for today guys thank you for watching this article if you’ve liked it then why don’t you subscribe to the mailing list and you’re going to get a whole bunch of free stuff that I’ve made for you and. You know. since you’re already here why don’t you like comment and subscribe to the YouTube channel. You know. thank you for watching and I will see you again soon you.
okay so here’s a question for you what if you could have people virtually crane out and begin to buy your product even before you’ve made it or even before you started writing a single word of text. Now wouldn’t that be about standing benefit to you. So you only create for us. But. You know. I absolutely guarantee to sell. In fact, i’ll show you how to create a product that will virtually sell itself so that seems useful to you then sit back and settle in for the rest of this article. Because i’m going to walk you through how to do exactly that hey guys maquina here and i’m completely thrilled and excited to share this with you today you won’t believe how simple this is yet most people don’t even think about it I’m going to give you a seven step process. But you can use to know what people want to buy even before you create a single product this is the holy grail of product creation. Because it’s the smartest possible way to manage your time and money for the biggest return on investment most marketers don’t know how to do this and the ones that do probably won’t real it. Because this strategy has typically only been shared in high-ticket items that come with a two-thousand-dollar price tag and that’s just to learn this stuff. But as. You know. I’m not like most marketers so let’s get down to it here you’re going to use a survey to uncover vital information from your subscribers. Now the questions you asked and not that important apart from the first 2 i’ll explain more about that in a second. But first i’m sure you already know that one of the most successful ways of business can launch well itself products a mobile app a website and is through the pre-launch sequence. Now most pre launches are often misunderstood elements of a marketing campaign you see everything you do with your business is one step inside a much larger sequence and everything you do has to be geared towards increasing revenue right it’s the only reason the business exists. So it makes perfect sense that you’re pre-launch has to naturally slide into the rest of the sequence especially the actual product launch itself most people mess this up and well I frequently screwed this up to I’ve often forgot to pre launch the smaller things like new articles free reports or even articles and I know from experience this means that you miss a great opportunity to bring even more people over to your side and you miss out on the chance to create some buzz around your stuff you see the pre-launch there’s a whole lot more than just warm people up and get them to expect and offer it gets them involved with your brand it gets them excited to be part of it and well it makes them feel valued. So if you can do better than I’m doing lately and if you can actually remember to apply this to well pretty much everything that you do online then you’re going to see much better results in the long term. Now the business model that you use doesn’t matter your niche doesn’t matter and. It really doesn’t matter what kind or how loud you following it for a satyr of this article I’m going to assume that you do some level of affiliate marketing. Now if you’re familiar with my stuff then you’ll know that I always recommend entering a new niche as an affiliate. Because you can test the waters you can test how profitable a niche is before you decide to commit. Now I use this approach myself I use it to test multiple niches and then I choose a winner based on what my subscribers responsive so let’s imagine that you do the same. Now when you’ve chosen a winner the one that makes the most profit the logical thing to do is to scale inside that niche right the next step is to create your own product and so all that instead of other people’s products. But with that approach comes an element of risk and humans world with program to avoid taking risks so a lot of people just don’t bother with this and you can’t blame them this nothing works they’re spending your time your money your resources whichever resources more abundant to you are creating a product that nobody wants it’s beyond disheartening almost soul-destroying so let’s remove that risk and let’s make sure that we only invest resources into the stuff that people actually want see I’ve got a seven step process that will give you a clear roadmap of how to effectively pre-launch anything to your subscribers in addition to the set of steps i’ll also give you a template. But you can use. But don’t worry the template is only a few sentences long you’re going to keep things short and direct to the point. Now here are the set of specs you need to think about so ask yourself how can you pray launch without being faerie helping you create curiosity and anticipation how can you make it collaborative how can you find objections how can you make it conversational how can you set yourself apart from the competition and how can you find the exact offer your subscribers want by. Now to get the answers to all these questions that’s where your survey comes in your subscribers only have to tell you a couple of things on the survey and that’s the top two questions that your product absolutely needs to answer that simple right let’s go through each of these steps in a bit more detail. Now the first step how can you let people know that you’re about to watch something without making it look like you’re trying to sell them something well this is important. Because most people don’t like being soaked it makes them feel guarded it puts their barriers up and where you can’t blame them. But all the unethical marketers number shower turns around at the moment. So if you can do separate yourself from those guys an easy way to tell people that something is launching without sounding like you’re trying to pitch them something is to ask for the help let’s imagine that you’re in the weight loss finish. Now you could ask them to take part in the survey tell them you’re working on a new product and you want to make sure that you haven’t forgotten anything so just ask them what they need help with will keep things open honest and direct. In fact, asking them to take part in a survey is exactly the right kind of research and it will help you to uncover the new information that you need for the rest of the seven step process and running a survey is a great way to lower defenses. Because it won’t feel like you’re trying to sell anything when you do this your subscribers know that you plan on selling something. But they won’t feel uncomfortable about it so the second step how can you create curiosity. Now curiosity is a very powerful trigger and it’s closely related to anticipation you can make your subscribers feel curious at the start of your campaign then they’d be hooked for the rest of the duration. Because once curiosity grabs people it just doesn’t let go so how can you cease their curiosity well thankfully it doesn’t take much effort all we have to do is tell them something else of interest to them is coming their way and that they can’t get the hands on it just yet how you phrase it is important you should hint that other people are also anticipating the release of your breath. Now this helps you create some buzz you see curiosity anticipation and buzz are all linked together if you start dropping hints about your launch early enough telling your subscribers that your product has been long awaited that’s an effective way to create anticipation it’s got your opinion of what you consider long awaited to be used well it’s entirely subjective so. Now how can we make it collaborative this is something that most people ignore. Because well they just don’t realize how powerful it is you see people tend to support the things that they helped create when they feel involved I feel engaged and that’s one of the ways that you can actually turn subscribers and fans so how can you add this your pre-launch sequence well you’ve already made sure this in step one remember we mentioned using any survey well how you phrase it is important how you ask them to get involved should be straight to the point so tell them up front that you need their help the reality is that you’re asking them for a favor this actually makes your subscribers feel a sense of duty and almost forces them to reciprocate so they will probably comply with your request something here is. Because you must don’t help you you’ve shifted the attention away from yourself to them you’re giving them attention and you’ve made them feel important in the process right so we’re about halfway through the sequence. Now next on the list is how you find objections. Now you might think you already know what your subscribers objections that. But until you engage with them directly you won’t know for sure. Now most products are launched on a hunch and without the proper research this is why running a survey is so important people will actually tell you what their objections are right inside the survey then just tell you what the two biggest questions that have our you’ll be able to uncover their objections by looking through all the answers and finding reoccurring themes you’ll see maybe three or four common themes and within those or you’ll find the main objections of your market or your niche. Okay, next how can you make it conversational well listen a lot of marketers and well I’ve been guilty of this too. I mean a lot of us we occasionally use monologue instead of dialogue corporations the big guys the big industry leaders they tend to use monologues and sometimes matches while we try to mimic those big guys. Because we figure well if it works for those massive companies then well surely it will work for me too right well that’s counterproductive for us as individuals to market effectively we need to drop the corporate speak and speak to our subscribers and the way that we like being spoken to so instead of corporate speak we change the type of language we use and as a result we end up inviting our subscribers to become part of the conversation when we drop the corporate speak that’s when we create baiyoke how do i achieve this well this is what I did I imagine that I’m speaking to my best friend when I’m writing an email or blog post or even like well right. Now in this very article in my mind I’m imagining. But I’m talking to a really close friend so when you do this and combine it with the survey i mentioned earlier you’re actively inviting your subscribers to become part of the conversation with you. Okay, how can you set yourself apart from the competition this one is a biggie and it might take some time to find your unique voice. Because that’s what really sets you apart you have a unique world of you a perspective that isn’t exactly the same as anybody else’s so by tapping into how you see things and sharing your unique insights well you will set yourself apart from the competition. Now that’s big picture thinking and it might take some time to bring out your unique advice so what can you do for a quick shortcut stay well again looking at the survey answers you’re going to find a whole heap of information about what people want. But can’t get so they’ll actually tell you what the void is they’ll tell you what problems they need help with that they can’t find solutions to anywhere else. Now finally how can you find the exact offer that your subscribers want to buy well once you gather all the information that you’ve obtained through this survey you will have in front of you a valuable role map of what people want to buy. Okay, hang on you might be thinking well most people don’t want to buy things and well you’re right most people don’t sit around waiting for a sales person to show up. But most people do have problems that keep them awake at night they do have worries they have fears they do have hopes and they have dreams so when you offer them something that puts their mind at ease that stops the fears that gives them hope that allows them to dream of a life beyond the current situation well you bet they’ll want to buy it from you so. Now you have everything you need before creating a product. Because. You know. that is exactly the thing that people want to buy. Okay, good. Now. You know. how to pre-launch pretty much anything without sounding salesy you’ve learnt how to trigger curiosity and make the process a collaborative one you’ve learnt how to find and overcome objections and potential hurdles that stops people from buying your stuff you’ve also learned how to make the sequence conversational and how to stand out from your competition you’ve also discovered the exact offering that your subscribers will want to buy so use this information to build momentum for your product launch. So it all goes off with a nice bang and there’s also a template that you can use somewhere beneath this article thank you for watching today guys I hope you found this useful and and if you like some more tips and advice then you’ll get them online railings which is completely free to do so thank you for watching and I will see you then leave.
hey everybody welcome to profit copilot it’s mcleaney here again and today I’m gonna give you the five stages of a very successful state sales stales funnel sales form. You know. what I’m talking about I haven’t had my seventeen cups of coffee today so I’m not firing on all cylinders the five stages we have lead magnet trip are core product profit booster and then return path and I’ll go through each of these. Now so lead magnet that is the introduction that’s like asking someone for the phone number and then we have the trip wire which is the equivalent of going on a date sort of small investment low risk and do. You know. what happens when when you purchase a trip wire product the conversation in your head changes right it goes from am I willing to buy this so how much am I going to spend and. Because of that the process in the sales funnel changes just like the process that you go through in a relationship might change once. You know. that you like this person so once you purchase the trip wire then you go on to the core product and this is a bigger investment it’s at a slightly higher risk just like your relationship it’s a bit more risk which once you go with that you have the core product then you have the upsells and the upsell chain and these are profit boosters and the dating equivalent could be getting married. Because you are. Now committed to this person to this product and then you have the return path this is in equivalent the weekly date nights they on go on maintenance so in in a sales funnel this will be the future product sales that you make from that customer and it’s not just about the profit that you make from them it’s also about how they tell people how great your service and your product is just the same way that a spouse would go out and rave about their partner so it’s the same or similar process so there you go that’s the five stages so lead magnet tripwire core product profit booster and then the return path so that is the five stages of a very profit successful sales one-on-one if you follow this process you have the potential the potential to increase your bottom line by 16%. Because at each stage of the funnel your profits increase they double each stage they double and the end result is a potential 16% increase in your bottom line of course you’re not going to really increase your profits by 16%. But even if you get a fraction of that you’re still doing very well if you follow this five-step process you will at least double your profits which is not a bad start.

What is up. ladies and gentlemen and thank you so much for joining me again at the tech crank house. So this article will be covering the m1 finance app or some sort of investment type deal that actually works with the app and works well with it. So if you like that you’re in for a treat and feel free to leave a like share subscribe and hit that Bell button below to 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, ladies and gents so in this article I’m going to be kind of talking about how you can make money with the m1 finance app. Now this isn’t necessarily kind of a quick money method it’s not going to make you a ton of money overnight. You know. it’s not exactly like a penny stock trading strategy or anything like that. But it is definitely something that’s interesting to consider. Now when we’re looking at m1 Finance one of the defining features of m1 is actually the ability to buy partial shares. Okay, partial shares of stocks of ETFs whatever you want so in buying partial shares and in setting whatever allocations you please. Because here you can see I’ve set my majority allocation to the Vanguard S&P 500 Growth Fund about seven hundred and seventy dollars and that one of course this portfolio is still growing at a pretty decent rate and these other funds that are less risky I’ve actually allocated at a much lower price. Now a few of these I would only be able to buy one share so. Because $230 actually that was about 40 bucks of shares. So I think total stock market. Okay, it’s actually about 130 so in that case. Okay, in that case I would have only been able to afford one share but. Because of partial share buying through this app I’m able to allocate essentially whatever I want into these different stocks and that really helps me maintain essentially a sort of risk. You know. profile that I’m more comfortable with and then I think we’ll. You know. overall have a pretty good record of return so. Because of partial care buying purchase sharing part of me almost exclusively I was able to really weigh these higher growth stocks pretty heavily upfront here and then kind of put a decent allocation to emerging markets and different. You know. stocks like that funds like that. But at the same time I was able to keep higher dividend paying funds and less risky funds down to the tail end at a lower overall distribution you can see that this account is really weighted pretty well for moderate growth or moderate to aggressive growth and that’s exactly what I want in doing that I can really kind of maximize profitability. Because I’m a won’t set allocations exactly how I want them I’m able to. You know. expose myself in whichever way I please. You know. if I want to have higher risk exposure then I can do that extremely easily just by adjusting an allocation once again if we go to like view details here you can see that I can very easily just bump these up or bump them down of course I can’t go over a hundred percent. But. You know. I think you kind of get the deal with that so that’s 104 percent even okay. So I need to dial that down. I mean these ones if you want to adjust your adjust your risk profile for being even riskier you could turn these down to almost nothing. I mean you could leave that all those one or so and then bump up a much higher risk. You know. option here such as the XT fund and bump that up to an allocation of 28%. So. It really depends on how exactly you want to spin it. Now if you wanted to have a different allocation and I don’t want that to save let’s reset changes there. Okay, if you want to have a different allocation you can really set it up however you want and that’s kind of the beauty of this program. Because if you only have. You know. say 500 dollars to put into a portfolio like this you can still make a portfolio that’s adjusted for whatever risk level you want say for example I also have a dividend yodeling portfolio here which is pretty much solely focused on dividend yields and that’s. You know. once again only $500 and I was able to get a good distribution here and. Because then dividend payments will be spread out more throughout the month they’ll be relatively consistent and. You know. I’ll be able to essentially have dividends for most of the month all with pretty minimal effort this is really not that difficult to set up or use and. Because of partial share buying. It really makes buying stocks a lot more effective. Now I know on stash invest and acorns you can buy partial shares once again. But you’re a lot more restricted as to what you can actually buy so it’s really a completely different story and definitely something to think about. You know. you can definitely use this to your advantage and kind of leverage your funds and your exposure however you seem best fit for you which is important. You know. it’s important to get a good exposure and that really does maximize profitability so I’ll probably have a view few articles coming up where I talk more about how to set up a portfolio how to kind of custom tailor to your specifications.

hey guys welcome to profit copilot its makini here and let’s make an e-book that people are gonna love and let’s do it in about 20 minutes. Okay, so in about 20 minutes time you’re gonna have your first ebook all done and dusted and ready to go so let’s not waste any time and let’s just get down into it so why should you make an e-book and I think everybody has got at least one good ebook in them that they can sell to make money so with the ebooks we deliver value in a very efficient and. You know. a really slick way to whatever niche that we’re in. So, you know. that means that your customers can access the content immediately there’s no messing around and that allows you to make money quickly and. You know. these ebooks are really quick and easy to make as you’re going to see in this article. Okay. So, you know. when it goes to these ebooks listen people are not paying for pages and pages and pages of content that they’re paying for the results that you can give them so what we’re going to get into. You know. how long the book should be in a minute. But another reason that we would really consider making these ebooks is. Because if we want to we can give the shorter versions away for free as. You know. valuable freebies that will entice people to join our email lists and if we choose to to go on the selling them route. So if we want to sell the ebooks and I recommend that you. You know. you can try both these methods and see which works best for you. But when we do that we can automate everything. So it becomes passive income and the content of the ebooks. Okay, that the fact that you’re making is selling these ebooks is transformative not only for you as a blogger as a website owner as an affiliate marketer whatever you might be. But they’re also transformative for your your customers so you’re taking them on a journey from. You know. a place of having a problem an issue that they need to solve so showing them how to achieve the thing that they want to do. Because I’ve been doing this for so long I’ve heard pretty much every concern that you can think of when it comes to making ebooks and digital information products and all that stuff and I’m gonna talk about some of the most common concerns that I hear so a lot of people out are worried. Because they don’t know how many pages right and. You know. what there’s no right or wrong answer for that the thing that you got to do is help people solve a problem so that might take you three pages it might take you three pages it doesn’t mouth are not paying for them for the amount of pages they’re paying for the results that you can deliver another common concern that people often have is that they don’t feel like an expert and you don’t have to be if you’ve seen any of my other training when it comes to information products you’ll know that I I encourage people to to make a start with this stuff. Because all you have to do it all you have to be is a few steps ahead of the person that you’re teaching. You know. and you’re really in the best possible place to be your teacher if you are still learning yourself. Because that information is still fresh in your mind and. You know. all the the current common hurdles and problems and that kind of thing that people face so when it comes to being an expert. You know. even if you don’t feel like one when it comes to sharing your knowledge and let me tell you that your knowledge all that information inside your head all that life experience all the situations and the problems you’ve solve and all that stuff is so valuable people underestimate just how valuable their knowledge really is. Because of course you don’t value it when it’s in your head cuz. You know. it’s there all the time isn’t it. But to somebody who doesn’t have those experiences or how far can your knowledge what you’ve got is amazingly valuable and all we have to do is package it and present it in the work in the right way that makes it easy for someone to obtain it and buy it from you so one we’re talking about education educating people and sharing our knowledge there’s really three roles that we can choose. So you will fall into one of these no matter what niche you’re in no matter what kind of business you’re running so the first one is the been there done that. You know. bought the t-shirt kind of kind of educator so you’ve you’ve seen all that there is you’ve done it for yourself you have achieved the thing that I’m that people who come to you want to achieve the other type of I’m reluctant to call it expert. But let’s say the other kind of teacher is the researcher reporter so what you would do is you would go out find the information that someone needs to achieve. You know. a certain goal and then you would present that information this the solid information the stuff that actually works you would share that with them then we’ve got the fellow student so maybe you are also. You know. in in in a very similar boat to the people that you’re helping so you’re just just a little bit ahead of where they are and you’re finding your way to and you’re showing them what works. So you will fall into one of these roles and every if every single role that we’ve got here is lucrative. So you can choose any one of these and you will still make the same amount in terms of revenue as the next one so let’s get down to making the e-book. So I said we can do it in about twenty minutes i’m gonna show you how we can do that. Now so we’ve got six sections that make a fantastic ebook. In fact, we’ve got likes between six and ten. But to simplify it to get you up and running today so by the end of this you’re gonna have you your first ebook done and dusted you just really need six sections. You know. it can be a bit more fancy later on if we want to be. But we just need six and the first one in the first section that we need so imagine this is a headline on on your you you ebook let me show you. Okay, I’ve got a damn ebook for you I’m gonna show you in a second. Now let me say a lot of people are worried about the topic they don’t know what to write about when it comes to any book write about what. You know. so that can be pretty much anything. Okay, maybe you’ve lost weight maybe you have pretty good on the dating scene maybe you’ve built a website maybe. You know. how to install WordPress maybe. You know. how to write good blog posts maybe. You know. how to build an email list it doesn’t matter whatever your knowledge is like I said people underestimate their knowledge they devalue their own knowledge and yours it’s absolutely how so so valuable to someone who doesn’t have that knowledge so we can we can use anything maybe. You know. how to SEO the website. Okay, and that’s what I’m gonna talk about here so I’m going to show you a demo. So this is as you can see here this is just Google Docs right so I’m not using any any fancy software for this and here we have all the sections of an e-book the end result so what you would do in this section is you would give them tell them about the end result that they are going to achieve from using your your ebook. So if I was to write an e-book about SEO. Because that’s that’s the very first product I made was about SEO so how to SEO blog could be a bit more specific so. So I would write something like just a very short paragraph by the end of this ebook you will know the exact steps you need to take to get free traffic from the search engines this is how you get to the front page of Google for free so that will be the end result the big promise in this demo book that home that I’m writing at the moment so the second section that we need is to address common problems. So if it was SEO the common problems I’m going to address is that people think that SEO was complicated and let’s be truthful about it. You know. most people who’ll teach SEO stuff make it way more complicated and way more technical than it actually needs to be. So I address that. You know. you know it is a bit involved in a bit technical if if we’re doing it the old-school way. But here I’m going to promise them some shortcuts so they get the results that they want faster and then the next section the next headline that you can have is about your story and this actually falls into two parts and I’ll run you through both of them. Now so the first part would be the struggle how you how how you found yourself in a situation that you needed to get out of then the second part of your story will be the success how you managed to do that and the transformation that that you were experienced as a result some for looking at my very quick. You know. this actually this demo that I put together it probably took me about five minutes to do all this just for the purpose of this article so struggle that I’m going to focus on here is my website wasn’t getting any traffic and it could be popular if only enough people could find it. Okay, it’s a very common problem isn’t it and if your struggle matches the struggle of the people that you’re trying to help then you create a stronger bond with them. You know. you build that rapport bit quicker so then you would tell them how about the success that you you you experienced so after I discovered SEO my site started getting traffic and started making sales and. Now my website gets millions of hits a month true story fact and I make a full-time living not only that I can also employ a team of people to run it for me the next section what you’ve got your your story sorted out the next section is to dispel some myths so here I have got myth one myth 2 and I just make that bold so myth one is that you need to hire expensive SEO guys okay. Yeah, that’s one way I have addressed that as that’s one way of doing things if you have an unlimited budget and I’m sure. You know. if you’ve messed around with SEO before. You know. that it can cost thousands a month. But I make a promise here that I will show them how to SEO their website quickly and for free and then I address a second myth that they need to understand website code. Now I acknowledge that this was true a few years ago. But we. Now have most we have a lot of tools that do most of the heavy lifting for us the next section is the most important section of your ebook this is the real meat of the thing. So this is where you give them how to solution. So if we have a look at the demo one that I’ve made here all I’ve got here is step one step two step three step three step four and I just talk them through all the steps that they need to take to solve that problem. So, you know. we’re not doing anything crazy complicated here we’re just giving people an overview of what they need to do and then the final section is we give them a call to action. Now this can be anything you like you can ask them to buy one of your other products to opt-in to email list if they haven’t done so already you can ask them to share your content or to like a Facebook page whatever you want here and this example I’m encouraging them to become an affiliate for the e-book that they’ve just read that’s pretty easy stuff right you can probably knock one of these out in the next twenty minutes next half hour or so what about making a cover where do you get that sorted out so. Yeah, you are gonna need to make the book look presentable make it look attractive and we’ve got a couple of options. So I would recommend going to canva.com they’ve got loads of templates that you can use for free and then it’s just drag and drop and get it looking. You know. or would however you do it it’s pretty hard to mess it up when you use canva if you’re in the resource library on profit copilot then you’ll see a lot of the ebook covers that I’ve used most of them have come from canva so another option that we’ve got is Fiverr. You know. recently I’ve started using Fiverr again and I think it’s pretty good. You know. it used to be a bit hit and miss. But I’m pretty impressed with some of the quality of the stuff that’s on there right. Now so those are two good options for you to get your covers made. But how do you price your ebook this is another. You know. common question people ask very much all the time when it comes to making ebooks and again. You know. it’s really up to you there’s no right or wrong answer. But I’ve got some kind of general guide for you if you want to use that so the first option that we’ve got is to give it away we can use it as a lead magnet. Now let me say if you’re writing. You know. a two page PDF or a one-page PDF PDF. You know. I will probably give that away for free so what I would do is using the structure that we’ve got today run through make like a first draft just covering the main points that you need to cover and then give that away as a lead magnet and then if they want to upgrade to a more advanced version what I will do is go through all the sections and go into more much more detail on every point. So you increase the the volume of the content and you give more value in the e-book and that allows you to charge more for it so a minimum that you should be looking at is around seven dollars for any any book and right up to forty seven dollars I really wouldn’t go beyond fifty dollars for an e-book I have sold them for a hundred dollars a time. But the content in that was it was it was on a different planet. So I could justify charging a hundred dollars. I mean if you have got a brand-new technique that no one knows about no one has discovered yet and you’re using it to get awesome results then sure. You know. sell the e-book furs as much as you can you can get away with. But generally. Because we won’t reinvent the wheel with things we won’t come up with absolutely brand new methods and. You know. all we’re doing is showing someone how to get the results that they want quickly then generally between seven dollars up to so forty seven dollars it’s probably where you want to be anywhere in between that so how do you sell your ebook well this is actually really easy so we can sell it to your email list or we can sell it on your website we can sell it on marketplaces like Amazon and jvzoo if you you’re trying to sell an e-book for. You know. twenty dollars or something Amazon probably isn’t the place to do it. Because. You know. books on there tend to be a lot cheaper so we want to sell our marketplaces that will give us the highest return so another option could be through affiliates like I’ve already mentioned. You know. we can encourage people to to sell the book for us and then they take a commission of every sale so that sounds pretty good right all that everything that I’ve shown you so far, it’s pretty manageable it’s all doable it’s highly lucrative. So, you know. even a short PDF will do really well so let’s say we’re in Google Docs. Now I encourage people to use Google Docs. Because it’s free and you can work from any device with an internet connection so that means you can. You know. you’re not tied to your desk. So you can even write it on your phone if you want to so to turn this into an e-book you got to file I got to download a house where is it there it is and then we’ve got a bunch of options here which is PDF document we we save that we download that’s a PDF and there we go that’s the ebook done and dusted pretty easy stuff right. So you can see why so many people make these things and make so much money from them. Because a highly lucrative hey. You know. really easy and quick to make so what about the next step well I have some additional specific training just for you. Okay, and we’re gonna go way beyond ebooks. Because when it comes to this digital information stuff digital products ebooks is really just the starting point. You know. and we’re gonna. Because we’re going beyond ebooks I’m gonna show you how to make products that are worth more than ebooks so we’re going we’re going way beyond the forty seven dollar price point and we’re gonna go right up to products information products that worth ten thousand dollars per sale I’m gonna show you how to make those then I’m gonna show you how to automate everything so we. You know. can set it forget it all that good stuff and it makes a passive income so during the the additional training course that I’ve got for you I’m gonna show you how to find the people who will want to buy your products and we’re going to spend about twenty minutes a day making these products and setting up the system. So, you know. you don’t have to sit down for hours and hours if you if you maybe you’ve got a job. You know. you don’t have that much time to invest into it I’m gonna show you how you can get up and running get cranking out this awesome business that generates passive income for you.

hey guys it’s my Queenie here and thank you for checking out this article today so today we’re going to talk about sales funnels I’m going to show you how to build your very own highly lucrative sales funnel and I’ll also show you how someone is using this exact process to quietly pulling a seven-figure income and then I’ll show you all the essential parts that you need to know for an email sequence that you can copy and use it to convert more people into buyers. So this is going to be a great article for you you got to learn how to increase your revenue no matter what stage you’re at right. Now and you can apply this to pretty much any kind of website. So you can use this if you into blogging if you’re doing affiliate marketing or if you’re even selling your own products it’s going to work absolutely great for you you see this process is really simple and you only need three web pages to make it work and until all there’s like five parts there’s just five parts and you probably already have everything that you need to make it work so I’m going to show you a basic sales funnel that you can use. But first I need to give you a word of caution. Because while they say simple stuff it does require effort you need to roll up your sleeves and you need to do some of the dreaded work with this stuff and you’ll also have to test this and well. You know. fine-tune it to get the kind of results that you really want to see. So if you’re happy with all that then well let’s go ahead and build your first sales funnel. Now I’ll explain what’s involved first I’ll tell you what the things are that you need and they’ll explain or each of them does and then I’ll show you a real example of how a seven-figure business does it. So you can see how everything fits together and how it all connects so then you can use that as well maybe as a template to go forward with you see you’re only going to you is three webpages for this and you might already have them first of all we need a squeeze page then we need a thank-you page and then we need a download page. So this is all very simple stuff so let’s go through each of these the first one is a squeeze page. Now if you don’t have a squeeze page or if you don’t know what one is then don’t worry I’m going to explain it to you. Now typically a squeeze page is a web page that presents your visitors with two choices and only two choices your visitors can either subscribe to your email list and they can get what you’re offering or they can leave and that’s it there are no other choices available you offer them a valuable freebie something that we’re helping to solve part of the problem in exchange for the email address they take it or they don’t. Now these kind of pages have evolved over time and. Now blog posts can be hybrid that’s a combination of an article with an opt-in form mixing both of these two things together can be pretty powerful however you choose to present your opt-in form is of course up to you as long as it’s prominent on the page. But if you’re not building an email list at the moment then stop what you do that should be your priority stop everything else that you’re doing in your business and get this fixed immediately. Because building a responsive email list is the most valuable asset you will ever own I really have to emphasize the importance of this and keeping it targeted. I mean that means speaking only to the people who have a specific problem. But you can help solve. I mean I can’t tell you how many times I hear from people who are struggling to make this internet thing work and it comes down to really the message or the content is too broad you need to keep things really tightly focused. Okay, so once we’ve got that next we need a Thank You page this is well well you thank your subscribers for joining your email list. Now there are a few different types of thank-you page typically they will tell your subscribers how to confirm their subscription. But in this version we’re going to do something a little bit different in this one you’re going to make a direct offer you’re going to present your leads with an opportunity to buy something from you you’re going to make a direct offer to them. Okay, before we get into that stuff the last page we need is a download page this is where your subscribers can download the free item that they signed up for and that it that everything we need and it all looks pretty simple so far, right well it’s. But don’t underestimate just how powerful this is this exact funnel is responsible for many seven-figure businesses and I’ll show you a case study in a few minutes. But. Now let’s go through the process and see how everything fits together so have a look at this diagram and I’ll talk you through it. Okay, as you can see we start with web traffic we need visitors to come to the website right without web traffic everything else stops we send them to the squeeze page this can be a blog post if you like as long as your signup form is easily visible as long as it’s prominent on the page the rest doesn’t really matter this is where people can join your mailing list then in step 3 people who opt into the mailing list are then redirected to Thank You page and finally once they either buy from you or they decline your offer then they’re sent to a download page where they can get the thing that they wanted it’s still really simple stuff right. Okay, so let’s dig a little bit deeper into things and get a real understanding of how this all works together and then I’ll show you an example of how it works in the real world. Okay, let’s go back through each one of these steps and let’s start with web traffic so where do you find Rizzo’s well the best way in my experience is just to advertise. It really effective you can get awesome results it doesn’t cost you much money and you get laser targeted traffic that means you’re only talking to the people who really want your stuff Facebook Google and LinkedIn well these are all great places to get web traffic it’s also easy to track your results. Okay, on to step two a squeeze page. Now this needs a compelling offer it’s an ethical bribe that you offer your visitors to persuade them to join your mailing list the moment they join your list they become leads this is an incredibly valuable asset for your business. Because this is traffic that you own and you can promote to them as often as you like a good squeeze page should offer something for free it should help your leads to solve part of a specific problems offer them a cheat sheet or checklist. Now we used to offer free ebooks. But becoming less and less effective so basically you’re giving someone the ABCs so they can at least make a start on solving the problem. I personally offer articles and that’s what works fine for me where’s a format you use it’s called a lead magnet right the next step is to redirect them after they’ve subscribed so on this page you can ask them if they’d like to buy your product which can be a more advanced version of the lead magnet newbie marketers often make the mistake of putting their main product their core product on this page and then expecting a sale well everything you do does need to be tested expecting someone to buy your main item straight away is optimistic core products comprehensive training products what they typically cost anywhere from $30 up to $500 so don’t expect people to spend that amount of money with you before they feel like they can trust you may know you a little bit that’s why this stage instead of offering the main product we offer them a low priced item that doesn’t require much thought something that sounds good that buying it seems like a no-brainer the tripwire product you offer should not compete with you main product it should complement your main product for example if you’re selling web hosting as your main product then the tripwire offer could be a domain name if you’re selling weight loss products let’s say you’re selling a weight loss training product as you main as your core product then offering a diet recipe book could be the tripwire you see there are a couple of things at work here see people are creatures of habit if you do something today then you’re more likely to repeat a similar action at some point again in the future so by offering them a low-priced item that they can buy on impulse we’re priming them to buy from us again in the future this allows us to separate or segment people on the mailing list into two groups buyers and non buyers and we treat each of these groups in different ways I’ll explain more about that in step four. But for. Now this kind of funnel are sometimes called the ascension model which that with a low-priced item which is called a tripwire offer or a liquidator offer and then we send the buyer on a separate path to the non buyers which brings us to step four the download page. Now this page will be different depending on the action that you’re lead takes. So if someone why’s there going to have a different experience to the people who haven’t purchased if they do purchase the trip wire offer you then redirect them to an upsell this is where you ask them to buy your main product. But if they decline you through prior offer that you redirect them to a page where they can download the lead magnet if you think about it most of the people who come through this one a will say no and they will decline to buy the trip wire product and that’s. Okay, so a lot of what we do is geared towards turning those nosed into yeses return non buyers into bias and for that to happen the people who say no I sent a special email sequence and I’ll come to that in a minute. But that’s how this type of funnel works so you. Now have a good understanding of everything that’s involves. But what about seeing a real-life example in action as I was preparing to shoot this for you i coincidentally stumbled across a funnel stack designed by someone called sean Lebrun and he says that his funnel is on track pull it in seven figures this year this also happens to be the most commonly used funnel stack. Because it’s the easiest one to do and it works for almost every type of business I’ll show you the funnel right. Now so here is a diagram that Sean created it’s very simple it’s probably the most basic funnel you can find it’s a good stand point. But if you’re selling your own products then you want to go to the next level and add another step just like I showed you a minute ago if you’re doing a filling marketing this is the one to go with okay. So this is a good stack for newbies here on the left-hand side the first thing we see is a Facebook ad and this is how people are being pulled into the funnel I just point out if you are using Facebook out it’s worthwhile using a picture of a human being these tend to have a higher click-through rate. Because our brains are programmed to respond to faces it’s a process called face perception and we can’t help. But become magnetically drawn to human faces okay. Now on to the second part here we have the squeeze page and this does a few important things notice the red copy at the top it says one-page chichi this tells the visitor that the content is quick and easy to digest it’s not some 30 page ebook. But they have to find the time to read it then promises that there’s just one thing the visitor needs to do to solve their problem so it’s making the process a simple one and then of course we have the main benefit the end result of what’s achievable so when someone subscribes to this mailing list they’re taken to this page here’s the Thank You page with an offer included it’s a low ticket item it’s around 20 dollars and as you can see this is simple stuff. Okay, and if we look at the actual cheat sheet download you can see this URL at the top well that’s actually an affiliate link and here you can see in this instance three follow-up emails I use. Now I’ll go through my own follow-up secrets for you right. Now. So you can copy that sequence this is a four day email sequence and every email we send has three main components to it so we take the subscriber on a journey from not knowing much about us as marketers to actually making them feel excited about buying from us so let’s go through each one of these emails and find out exactly what’s going on. Okay, so in day one we send a welcome email this is where you thank them for subscribing to you list you’re giving access to the lead magnet which is also a way of delivering value and then you announce special offer that’s going to be available to them in a few days time. But not right. Now so in this email you’re not actually selling anything you’re really just giving them valuable content and starting a countdown in their minds on day two we send them more valuable content here you’re actually training your subscribers to open your emails. Because they’ll know if they do then they’ll get some really good stuff you’re creating a psychological anchor here also in this email you want to tease the special offer so tell them at least three big benefits they’ll get from using your product this is to get them to feel desire so they feel excited and look forward to your special offering it also helps to build anticipation and then you finish with a reminder about the counter tell them by two days time they’ll be able to access the special offer that they can’t get anywhere else then on day three we’re going to ramp up the desire for your product. Now of course you send them more value as well and you need to tell them the benefit of your main products. But this time we also include a warning that your special offer really is limited that it’s time-sensitive or well however you’re limiting your offer maybe you’re including a special bonus for a limited amount of time maybe you’re offering a discount so think about what’s relevant to you and however you’re going to make the offer special C this is the time to really tell them that they need to take action when they receive the email tomorrow this is a great use of scarcity when things become exclusive when they become rare or limited they instantly become more desirable. Because the value increases then on day four the last email of this sequence it’s all about getting them to the sales page so keep the email short and sweet keep it to the point keep focused on getting them to click on that link tell them to hurry. Because the special offer is about to expire ok so that all there is to it this simple sequence is incredibly powerful and almost every six and seven figure business uses this approach in some way.

hey guys and in this article I’m gonna show you how to make a lead magnet using canva I use canva all the time. Because well it’s awesome so we can do really cool stuff with it we can make really nice-looking presentations and ebooks and that kind of stuff so we’re going to use comfort here we are in in the software. Now let me tell you a little bit of a background here so one of my students caught Rick Higgs what a cool name right here is a lead magnet that he is has made using my training the profit copilot Academy training so he wants to make this look really nice. But he’s having a bit of trouble getting his head round using canva so he asked me from a help and I said well I’ll make a article to walk him through it and I figured other people might need that information too. So I thought well let’s make the article public and share it with you guys. So you can benefit from me too so here’s what we’re going to do we’re going to go to canva we’re going to hit create a design I’ve got loads of options here I’m gonna choose ebook for this one I have chosen presentation and I’ve also chosen this version of presentations who to create ebooks that look slightly different maybe you’ve seen some of my lead magnets that look a little bit unusual they stand out a little bit that’s how I’ve done I’ve just chose these ones instead of the ebook but. Because I assume your lead magnet is going to be an e-book of some sort let’s choose that one so here it’s going to generate a working area and all we do is we have we have a look on the left hand side here and we’ve got loads of options. Now have a look at it this bit here it says free some of them are free some of them aren’t free. So if it’s got that little little label then we can just drag it like that into the work area and then we click on the text and what’s Rick gonna call his lead magnet I don’t think he’s he’s named it so it’s about PL or so just for so the cool thing with canva is we can change the the well pretty much every elements on the page so we could align it and change it however we like can also change the background I’ll get to that in a second. So if we were to change the background we would go to background and we could drag in a different a different design we could go to uploads and we can drag in find a in which so we could change it like that I’m gonna undo that and undo that. Because I’m not going to spend too much time on the design so here we will click on add a new page once we’ve got the the cover page sorted out and we’re happy and we can add a new page so here we will go to text element drag that in and position it wherever we like let’s go back to Rick’s leave magnet so we would coppy the text here copy that and then we would paste it in here and align it however we like now. Because this is a little bit wordy what I’m going to do is once I have this page set up in a way that I’m happy with I’m actually going to split this text across at least two pages so what I’m going to do is remove some of this text for the moment change the position slightly here bring it down you go to elements toes and we can search for some nice image can pull that in you you you double-click on the image to to get this kind of mask area and then click there if we want to move that area so we can we can highlight just a portion of the image we can do that just by double-clicking move though here and this is of course called introduction so so I’m going to take that going to duplicate this portion of text. Because I want this it’s the same properties on this text block so I’m going to copy that and then just you drag it down here I’m going to paste in the part that I’ve deleted. I mean it like that. So if we’re happy with this we can then copy the page by hitting this this icon and then we can go go ahead and we can get more of you Rick’s lead magnet me copy that and then we can paste in some of it here and we just paste in the text that that we need wherever we need it you and there you go so so we can change this image if we want to we can change the background color here so we could make it whatever we like I’m going to have it the same color it’s that salmon color so there you go that’s how you make a lead magnet in canva then too forget it you hit download it’s going to give you an option here. So I would go with the standard recommended version PDF or pages when you hit download then that will just download the document for you and it will be all done dusted ready for you to upload to the Internet as a lead magnet so hope you found this article to be useful as you can see canva is very easy to use once you understand a few of the basics so it’s all drag-and-drop we can just align things everything that we have on the screen can be moved however we like we can change the colors change the font sizes the font face can change the images we can replace that one if we want to it’s a very powerful platform and if you making a lead magnet I would keep it under 30 pages if you’re intending to use the free version of canva so with that you get 30 pages on any of the documents that you that you intend to use for free so. Okay, I will leave it there hope you found this useful thank you for watching and I will see you again in in a few days thank you.
