How To Use Article Marketing To Make Money Online

Article marketing has been the holy grail of internet marketing because it is by far the easiest way to make money online without investing too much money. I helped people reach goals of $10.000 in 5 weeks after writing their first article. In this article I will share some guidelines that you must follow in order to succeed at article marketing and finally start to make money online.

A lot of people make article marketing much harder than it really is. Article marketing is not difficult, it just requires some focused and intense work from your part. Forget about all the automatic software that spins articles. These get rich quick schemes only damage your reputation and will make you lose money in the long run.

Niche Selection

The key to finding a profitable is to search for a niche that is embarrassing for people. Try to find a niche that people only look for on the internet. A popular niche can be Penis Enlargement. Let me explain this further.

A niche like Penis Enlargement is quite profitable because people who look for this kind of information will not go to local store for a cure. Instead they look on the internet and try to find some magic pill that will help them, without the knowing of other people.

You can even go deeper and find micro niches. Micro niches are great because they are untapped potential to make money. To find micro niches you have to be creative. This will come automatically after a while. A good example of a micro niche is: Polaroid 3303 Camera. People who do this exact search are looking to buy the product.

Invest some time and research a couple of big online forums to see what people want and make sure you can supply the need.

Keyword Research

There is a lot of confusion about proper keyword research. I suggest that if you start article marketing you do not need put much attention to this. The main goal is to start make some money online after that you can use advanced tips and tricks. Nevertheless I will give you some basic information about keyword research.

To do proper keyword research you need to know how fierce the competition is. A keyword like Make Money Online is just to fierce to compete in. Because people are paying thousands of dollars to make sure they stay in the top 10 of Google. Try to focus on long tail keywords. Long tail keywords have generally less competition. People who search for long-term keywords are better buyers studies have shown.

If you see the type of sites that rank in Google are like article directories, web 2.0 properties. Then go ahead and start writing articles for the desired keyword. After writing your article build about 10 quality back links and see if you rank in the top 10. If not then continue to the next keyword.

Article Titles

Remember that competition online is fierce and you need to make sure that people will find you articles. Article titles are the most important part of article marketing. A reader will decide on your title if he or she will click the link to read your whole article. Readers love catchy and outrageous claims as titles. Try to make you titles as outrageous as possible but within the guidelines of the article directory you are posting it to. A good way to get inspiration for good titles is to look at sales pages of products in the niche you are promoting.

Article Content

Make sure you deliver quality information to your readers and not garbage. Always do research before writing an article. 1 quality articles is better than 20 garbage articles. People generally read an article because they have a problem. Solve the problem for your readers and tell them how you did it. Give away valuable golden nuggets.

Focus on the pain the reader has with his problem. Talk about the problem and make sure he or she feels this. But like I said earlier, always offer a cure on how to solve the problem.

Use these guidelines daily and I guarantee that you will succeed in your online venture.

Which Streaming Service Is Best?

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

on

Our definition of television has changed over the years. It used to be that you could only watch TV on your TV. If you wanted to watch a movie back in those primitive days you actually had to drive all the way to the store to buy or rent a DVD. Thanks to high speed internet we can now stream movies and TV from the cloud to all sorts of devices from phones to computers (and yes, even on your TV). Now that video streaming has proven to be insanely popular, dozens of online streaming services have come onto the scene, all competing for your attention and your money. That raises the question: which one is best?

Describing all of the streaming services available would be next to impossible, but here is my top-5 list of the most popular services out there.

iTunes: For the Apple Enthusiast

Like most of Apple’s products, you either love iTunes or you hate it. If you already have apple products, using iTunes is a great way to sync all of your videos, music, and books on all of your devices. And whenever you pause a video, you can keep watching from where you left off, even on a different device. The downside to this service is that it’s only available for Mac products or PC. It also is slower on updating rentals than other providers. Overall, iTunes is a good option for Mac users, but it’s still worth it to explore other options.

Devices Supported: iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, PC/Mac

Price: $0.99 for TV show rentals, movie rentals start at $2.99

Selection: iTunes has a good selection for purchase; rentals are updated slower than some other providers

Vudu: For the Videophile

Vudu began its life back in 2008 as a box offering HD movies delivered via the internet. Now they got rid of their hardware and license their service to other devices. If you want only the highest quality content, this is the service for you. In addition to offering 3D content, Vudu also has the highest quality videos of any streaming service. They also have some new movies available sooner than other streaming services. The catch is that this service can get expensive.

Devices Supported: Android, iPad, Roku, HDTV/Blu-ray, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC/Mac

Price:$2 for 2 days on select titles, other titles start at $4.99 for HD and $5.99 for HDX (featuring 1080p HD) and usually last for 24 hours

Selection: They have several thousand selections, and most titles are available the same day the DVD comes out in stores

Amazon Instant Video: The Nice Afterthought

Amazon started selling digital media using a download service. They have since switched to Amazon Instant Video and have gone away from downloaded content in favor of streaming. To get access to Amazon Instant Video you can sign up for Amazon Prime, which allows you to access some content for free, after the yearly subscription. Other content can be purchased.

While Amazon’s video catalog is rapidly growing, it’s level of content is still not to the same level as Netflix or Hulu. However, Amazon does have some unique features that are unique to this platform: free two-day shipping and reduced overnight shipping on all amazon prime products and even free monthly book rentals from Amazon Prime Lending Library.

Devices Supported: Kindle Fire, iPad, Nook, Roku, HDTV/Blu-ray, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, WiiU, PC/Mac, and more

Price: $79 yearly subscription for Amazon prime, TV shows start at $1.39 to rent and $1.99 to own, new movies start at $3.99 to rent and $14.99 to own

Selection: They have a fair number of older shows and movies, there is also a good selection of BBC programs. While they have some new movies available to Amazon Prime members, most of them require you to pay for them

Hulu Plus: For the TV Show Junkie

Hulu Plus began as a TV series streaming site and, while they do offer some movies, the reason to subscribe to Hulu Plus is to watch TV shows. The platform offers more TV series than any other service, especially current episodes, and most of this content can be seen commercial-free. Hulu also offers a free service for streaming new episodes of hit TV shows, but it is only available on your computer.

Devices Supported: Android, iPhone, iPad, Roku, Apple TV, HDTV/Blu-ray, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, WiiU, PC/Mac

Price: $7.99 monthly subscription

Selection: The best selection of TV shows of any provider. Hulu Plus is an especially good choice for those wanting the most current episodes of hit TV series

Netflix: Get a Little Bit of Everything

Netflix came onto the scene over 10 years ago and completely revolutionized video rentals. They have one of the largest streaming content libraries and have millions of subscribers, making Netflix one of the biggest video streaming services out there. HD quality isn’t as high as some providers, but the cheap subscription and availability on almost any device makes Netflix a must-have for any movie or TV lover.

Devices Supported: Android, iPhone, iPad, Nook, Roku, HDTV/Blu-ray, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, WiiU, PC/Mac, and more (really pretty much anything)

Price: $7.99 monthly subscription

Selection: With a large selection of TV shows and a positively gargantuan selection of movies, Netflix has the best overall video selection out there.

The Success Of Eccomerce And The Future Expectations

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

on

It was in the 1970’s that eccomerce appeared on the scene. Originally it was a process of electronically transacting business using Electronic Data Interchange and Electronic Funds Transfer. This was a way of making electronic transactions and information between businesses. This is the basis of the eccomerce that is enjoyed today. Although this was an adventurous plan they could not begin to predict eccomerce and the future it would bring.

Because of this original invention, credit cards, ATM machines and telephone banking developed in the 1980’s. Early in 1990 this expanded to include enterprise resource planning, data mining and warehousing. By 1994 this phenomenal use of technology started to advance by leaps and bounds.

With the introduction of high speed internet connections there were faster connective speeds and the ability to make more online transactions. Between 1998 and 2000, businesses first started building their online eccomerce sites, unfortunately, in 2000 there were a number of these businesses that failed. This was mainly due to their failure to realize the type of web site design that is needed to be successful.

This did not discourage many of the stronger businesses and they stayed with the idea of eccomerce. The success of their faith in the idea is illustrated by the huge amount of commercial transactions that now happen every day on the Internet.

It was in 1994 that eBay and Amazon were the first to establish eccomerce brands. This was not success at first try. Amazon is considered the first eccomerce pioneer but it was ten years before a profit was ever realized a profit because of the immense amount of investment required when it was launched.

It is hard to believe that Amazon started out as an online bookstore when one looks at its extensive coverage of online products today. It also was the original enterprise to pioneer in affiliate marketing, which allows other websites to earn sales commissions by way of referrals to Amazon sites. Amazon and Dell are recognized as the two largest internet retailers in the world.

It is amazing how a single idea can advance to the giant that eccomerce is today. When one looks at the thousands of online stores on the web, where it is possible to make a purchase at the click of a mouse, it is unbelievable. With their advanced web tracking abilities, these sites can determine customers preferences and plan their marketing accordingly. With the ability to make purchases on line, many people do the majority of their purchasing in this manner. Safeway and Albertsons even offer online shopping and delivery of grocery goods which has become very popular.

Top 10 Safety Hazards At Home

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

on

Two years ago, a 4 years old boy accidentally shot and killed himself with a gun that is owned by his father. The accident happened in his home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Until now, the case has not been settled yet.

In that case, his father did not realize that his gun could kill his boy. This accident is only one example of safety hazards that may persist in your home.

Many parents may do not realize about this hazard. They do not take enough care against safety hazards that may exist in their homes. What they can do is only to regret on what was happened. Of course it is too late and painful.

So, as a parent you must always be careful against safety hazards, which may harm your whole family members. Knowing precisely about them is a half-battle.

That’s why I write this article. It is to help you identify top ten safety hazards at home. You may find them all in your home. But, some of you may not. It is unique for each home.

Top 10 Safety Hazards at Home

You will be able to clearly see most of safety hazards below. But, there is one safety hazard that you cannot see, smell and taste.

I will list the invisible hazard first in order to get more attention from you since you will never know about its existence at all. Except, you use a detector.

  1. Carbon monoxide hazard. It is a toxic gas. People call it as silent killer since this gas is colorless, odorless and tasteless. You cannot use your sense to detect this gas. Detection can only be done by a carbon monoxide detector. Make sure that you have already had them installed in your home.
  2. Gun in the house. In the opening paragraph I already show a sad story related to danger of gun. If you have one in your home, make sure that your children are hindered to play it. Only you can use it.
  3. Slippery floor. Immediately dry up water and liquid spilled on the floor. Children under five years’ old and old parents may easily fall down and get injured. Watch your bathroom floor too since generally it is slippery.
  4. Sharp edge. I did not remember how many times my head got injured due to sharp edge especially at table edge. Installing table guard could be a great protection against this hazard.
  5. Fire hazard. Be careful with this hazard. You can easily find many sources of fire in your home; fireplace, gas stove, cigarette, candles including grills. Furthermore, fire hazard generates other hazards such as carbon monoxide poisoning.
  6. Small parts. Toy parts, needle, small magnet and any other small parts should be kept away from young children under five years’ old. Those things can be easily swallowed accidentally.
  7. Furniture tip-over. According to Consumer Product Safety Commission, between year 2000 to 2011 there were 105 fatalities involving furniture falling. This statistic should make you more careful about this kind of hazard.
  8. Electric hazards. AC outlet without plug, outlets close to water, defective electric wires and damage sockets are examples of electric hazards that are commonly found at home.
  9. Falling from height. Use ladder correctly when you try to repair something on the roof. And never used damage ladder to climb up. Falling from height may cause you injured and death. Never force yourself to climb up if you are unsure. Let the work done by experienced serviceman.
  10. Chemical hazards. Mosquito repellent, cleaning chemicals, plastic ware containing BPA and pesticides contain hazardous chemicals as their ingredients. Use those products as recommended by the manufacturers and keep out of reach of children.

Conclusion

Never think that you will only focus on those above safety hazards at home. Perhaps, there are still many other hazards at home. Always watch around your home.

And what you need to do is keeping out them from your whole family and if it is possible educates your family about those hazards since education is the best approach to protect your family from them.

What Is Toyota Production System?

What is Toyota Production System (TPS)?

Toyota production system is an efficient productive system that is accepted worldwide by many of the businesses and was generally proved to be one of the most effective ways to make profit and to balance production along with money circulation. Toyota production system is a simple way of making things fast, quick, and productive. It is well-known for its efficiency and its just-in-time concept that results in a continuous product managing process and a well self-defense plan for a business, not to keep numbers of defective products in storage. TPS is famous for its productive management process that comes together in pair, the Jidoka and the Just-in-Time concept, in which a specific number of products are produced to prevent large numbers of stocks that are not needed. Both the Jidoka and the Just-in-Time concept are widely-used in world-wide businesses and are guaranteed to be the two best ways to manage the production process and to maintain stability in a business efficiently.

Its Origin

Form its name, ‘Toyota’ is a company from the land of the rising sun, Japan. Japan is indeed the world’s most technological country filled with technology and a wide-variety of rituals and cultural performances that wows the world with its beautiful nature as well as its wise business management and productivity processes. Developed by Taichii Ohno, the TPS or the Toyota Production System functions efficiently and was shared globally to all businesses. Many Japanese philosophers at that time brought out ideas on managing process and productivity in order to improve businesses and to enhance their efficiency through products and their high quality. Eiji Toyoda gave employees and workers values and importance which increased productivity and teaming within offices, faculties, and companies.

The Jidoka

The Jidoka is a simple concept of visualization and determination of problems. It ensures that all machines or capitals work well without any technical problems. If any problems are detected or if the machines are malfunctioned, then the machines will automatically stop once normal processes are done. Jidoka is generally a quality testing visualization concept that will ensure businesses their product quality and minimize malfunctions of capitals, stock, as well as loss of profit. With the Jidoka concept, products with high quality will be produced. These satisfying quality products will be further passed on to next processes. Jidoka is considered simple and technological due to its several installations of the andons or the problem-display screen in different parts of the company that will show the operators problems detected by the system. These operators can work on many parts of the production system and can monitor numbers of machines all at the same time with the help of technology and a well-developed plan, the Jidoka concept. This concept will benefit the whole system be increasing productivity while improvements lead to a better processing capacity

Pros and Cons of Jidoka

Pros:

1. It eliminates wastes or products that are defective or malfunctioned

2. It ensures product quality

3. Provides safety for workers and labors

4. Keeps goals oriented

5. More percentage of reaching set profits and expectations

Cons:

1. High cost of technological tools

2. Specific target market

3. Result in an unstable productivity

4. Strict rules and regulations

Just-in-Time

Just-in-Time is a quick, fast concept in the production line that ensures businesses its safety by elimination of wastes and by producing only what is needed by setting how much products should be produced and when they should be produced which will include ways to store products safely. The Just-in-Time concept is mainly used in motor or vehicle businesses which deals greatly with production of vehicles and the transportation plans which includes period of time needed to complete orders and ways vehicles are transported.

How Just-in-Time works

1. Once an order is placed, it should be delivered as quickly as possible to the first line of production.

2. The assembly line or those in charge of vehicle parts like wheels, colors, and seats has to have all parts well-equipped and ready made in order to function automatically as soon as possible once an order is placed.

3. The numbers or the amount of parts has to be the same for both the assembly line as well as the parts-producing process.

4. The preceding process group has to have spare amounts of all parts of a vehicle and should have at least an amount retrieved by the business’s operator.

By following 5 simple steps in the production process or line, elimination of wastes and inconsistencies will ensure profit expectations as well as standard requirements of the businesses. One of the concepts within the Just-in-Time system is the Kanban system. The Kanban systems use the idea of supermarket management and productivity. The Kanban system uses codes, serial numbers, and names to make all parts of the production process easy and flexible. It will help improve the structure of the production process as well as keep the processes on tract. The supermarket storage idea provides needed amount of products in relation to the demands in the market and so it is convenient for customers because products are in stock just only in a limited amount.

Pros and Cons of Just-in-Time Concept

Pros:

1. Funds that were kept and tied up in inventories can be used later in other processes

2. Quick response to customer

3. Product quality ensured

4. Defect rates are reduced

5. Greater potential output

Cons:

1. Expensive and costly to introduce

2. Not enough products in stock

3. Not enough time to complete orders/ overhaul of productivity

4. Strict rules and regulations

Summary

The Toyota Production System or the TPS is indeed an efficient way to ensure product quality and make sure products are produced fast and quickly. TPS allows high productivity and an increase in demand for products. Components of specific products can be ordered accordingly; large amount of stocks are not kept and wastes are eliminated effectively to reach the company’s goals that are set and oriented as well as reach standard requirements.

One of the Leading Magazines of Australia – OK! Magazine

Published

The magazine tends to feature special interviews and personal experiences of celebrities which includes engagements and pregnancies. In 2005, celebrity pregnancies which were covered were those of Peter and Jordan, Alex Curran and Steven Gerrard. Stars like Liberty X singer, Andy Scott-Lee and Michelle Heaton announced their engagement with special deals with OK! magazine.

The magazine has a common policy of publishing only optimistic celebrity profiles, but in a 2007 interview with Britney Spears, Spears’ actions were so erratic that OK! decided to break this rule. Along with Britney, OK! also talked to her mother, Lynne Spears and her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, on the subject of Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy. This was the best selling copy of 2007.

Just recently, in August 2008, Britney Spears did an interview with OK! at her residence and it was observed that Britney’s old unpredictable behaviour was behind her, and she conversed during the interview that she is ‘happy, healthy and eager for the future’. The interview also had pictures which showed Britney and her children.

OK! is most well-known for its reporting of celebrity nuptials. OK! is also one of the most liked magazines with details that talk about the most recent celebrity gossips. Its largest scoops were Catherine Michael Douglas and Zeta-Jones, Jordan and Peter André, David and Victoria Beckham, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline and Ashley and Cheryl Cole.

Recently, OK! was honoured with £1,033,156 in a court case. OK! had special rights to the wedding of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, but its opponent Hello! magazine printed pictures as well, which led OK! to sue its competitor.

In October 2005, three superstar weddings toOK! place on the very same day-Jordan and Peter, Samia Ghadie and property developer Matthew Smith, and Kate Garraway and Derek Draper. OK! covered them all over separate issues. The biggest wedding of the three (which was of Jordan and Peter) was covered over two profuse issues.

The same occurred for the wedding of Ashley and Cheryl Cole and also for Christina Aguilera’s wedding. OK! also published an issue with photos of Eva Longoria’s wedding to Tony Parker.

Jade Goody was a well-liked celebrity for the magazine from 2002-2009 with many interviews and photo shoots, including her fight with cancer shown often in 2008.She holds the record for being on the cover for all the weeks throughout 2009 with subjects of her wedding, her christening and a compliment special, plus a special issue after her death and then again with her widow on the front cover.

Prior to Jade Goody’s death in March 2009, OK! flashed controversy by issuing an ‘Official Tribute Issue’ with front-page slogans stating ‘In Loving Memory’ and ‘1981-2009’, even as Goody was alive at the time.

Several months later in June 2009, OK! again caused indignation by running another tribute issue, this time for Michael Jackson exhibiting a front cover image which the magazine insiders claim was ‘his lifeless body’; additional images inside showed scenes of his attempted recovery, with Jackson’s mouth covered by an oxygen mask and impoverished to a hospital stretcher.

Offshore Drilling Jobs – How To Get Hired Without Drilling Experience

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Published

So, you want to work an offshore drilling job. Do you know which companies are involved in offshore oil drilling? Besides the super-big players like Esso, BP, Shell, etc. Did you know that these big boys do not always do their own drilling? Quite often nowadays, they are forced to subcontract some of the work to smaller players.

Have you heard of these companies: Diamond Offshore (Houston, USA), Dolphin Drilling (Tananger, Norway), and Frigstad Offshore (Singapore)? How about Offrig Drilling ASA, Scorpion Offshore, Songa Offshore and Thule Drilling ASA? These are just some of the companies in the modern oil industry. In their own way, you can call them the modern wildcatters. During the last slump in oil prices, the giants like BP and Shell stopped investing in their staff and oil drilling technologies. But some smaller companies correctly predicted that prices would rise again. They invested in R&D to develop new drilling techniques and technologies. They build new oil rigs for deep-ocean drilling. These are the boys that Shell and BP are sub-contracting for oil drilling services.

If you want to work on an offshore oil drilling rig, you have two main choices. The path most people think of is to go on board as part of the drill crew. If you have prior experience, you will probably be a pumpman or derrickman. If not, you have to get in as a roughneck or roustabout. Drillers are pretty much the 2nd-in-command and assistant of the oil rig manager. Technically, a roughneck/roustabout is a laborer. On the other hand, how many laborers earn $50,000 per year for just 6 months of work every year? Unlike a normal laborer, who never gets the chance to work his way up to manager level, a roughneck with the proper attitude has a reasonable chance to become a manager on an oil rig. Of course, first he has to work his way through derrickman and driller.

This is not the only way to get an offshore drilling job. If you have some useful trade, like a cook or medic, this will be a good choice regardless of your offshore oil rig experience. You get the same generous living conditions of the drill crew, and better salary than a comparable job on dry land.

Just because it is an offshore oil rig does not mean it does not need office staff. No matter where you go, you can’t escape paperwork. You’ll still find your paper pushers. Except that on the oil rig they are called tool pushers. They work in the rig offices and rig floors.

You also have the mechanical department and electrical department. The mechanical department hires motormen, mechanics and maintenance supervisors who are responsible for all mechanical operations. The electrical department includes jobs like electrician, electronics technician and maintenance supervisors who repair and look after of all the electrical equipment.

An offshore drilling job is a very lucrative career. As you can see, you do not need drilling experience to get hired on an offshore oil rig. And now that you know there are companies other than Shell hiring people, you have many ways to get in on the action. You can get in as part of the drill crew, or as a tradesman.
