Trade with Trend Alexander Elder Book ImageThose that remember the T.W.i.T acronym (Trade with Trend) almost always end up long-term winners in the stock market. These traders know which direction the tide is flowing and is smart enough to only trade in that direction.  This advice was was mentioned in the classic trading book “Trading For A Living” by Dr. Alexander Elder in his Triple Screen Strategy.  Perspective is key.

Another simpler explanation of how to keep the markets in perspective was made popular in an oldie but a goody, “Secrets For Profiting In Bull and Bear Markets” by Stan Weinstein.

In it, he simply breaks the market into four stages.  Stage 1 = sideways, basing, bottoming phase, Stage 2 = up-trending, bull phase, Stage 3 = sideways, topping phase, and Stage 4 = down-trending, bear phase.

The main indicator he uses to determine the stages is the 150-day moving average and price.  Lately, however, he has switched to using the 200-day moving average due to the market’s increased volatility.

History proves that (stock) markets go in bull (up) trends and bear (down) trends. So it is up to the trader to recognize when that shift may be occurring.  If we can anticipate possible shifts in long-term trends, we can get ready to align ourselves with the trend and make money with very little effort.  As everyone knows, NO SYSTEM IS 100%, but that is not necessary to make money in the markets.

As long as you milk your winners as long as you can and cut your losers fast, all you need is a prudent money management strategy to keep you in the game.

Stock Trading Trend ImageTeacher, author, and ex-hedge fund manager Mike Swanson is one such trader that implements the T.W.i.T (Trade with Trend) philosophy and utilizes Stan Weinstein’s Stage analysis in his own trades.  You can start receiving his Free Newsletter and learn his trading philosophy because as you’ll learn in the following video, the most important thing you can do to gain financial freedom is educate yourself so that you can capitalize on bad times as well.

If you trade (stock) markets already and find yourself getting stopped out a lot, step back,  get perspective, and remember T.W.i.T … Trade with Trend!

The video points out some undisputed demographics.  Any comments?

Find Coupons Online For Groceries And Household Items And Save $100’s … In Under 30 minutes

What would you do if you “found” a hundred dollars?  Hopefully you would invest it in something that can make you more money…after all, this is a site to help you gain financial freedom.

Well, you’re about to learn how a dirt simple grocery shopping strategy can help you find that hundred (or more) dollars.  It takes no more than 30 minutes a week and is easy enough that your kid can do it for you :o)

It just involves finding the hot deals, matching up coupons, and buy what’s on your list.

Bonus Tip That Will Save You Hundreds Of Dollars More…If You Use It (not part of the strategy you’ll see soon)

Bonus Tip: If you see a deal that doesn’t come around too often and it’s something that can last a long time, i.e. paper towels, frozen foods, canned foods, etc. stock up for the year.  This strategy is called “Power Shopping” and if you know when to do it, you can save hundreds a month!  We’re talking deals that are 40%-50% cheaper than warehouse prices, i.e. Costco, Sam’s Club, etc.  If you become a pro at it, you can drop your membership.

Thanks for that awesome tip Daniel!  -Author of  “Saving Money Through Power Shopping”

Now to be a Power Shopper, you need multiple coupons.  There are 3 ways to round up a bunch of the same coupons, each with its pros and cons.

1. Print the Coupons


  • instant
  • possibly cheaper, depending how much you print and your ink and paper cost


  • you can only print two (2) coupons per site which means you’ll have to go to 10 different sites if you wanted to print 20 coupons
  • you need to install (free) printing software in order authenticate the coupons
  • Searching for them takes time (some sites can be searched by pre-set names, but others you  must find them scrolling through multiple pages)

Here are some sites you can print coupons.  Notice the poor searching capability.  It may take some time to find a specific coupon.


2. Collect (or buy) multiple copies of Sunday’s paper, specifically the inserts


  • instant access to coupons (organization is a must)


  • cost of newspaper (if you buy them, compare what it would cost if you just bought the Sunday Paper from a stand vs ordering via a discounted service.
  • need a little storage area for many weeks of circulars

3. Use a Coupon Clipping Service


  • get multiple coupons without clipping and organizing multiple circulars
  • one stop shop


  • shipping times
  • cost of service – minimum of $3.94 ($3.00 minimum for coupons+.50 processing fee+.44 shipping)

The best clipping service, in my opinion, is a family ran, home base business that was featured in Woman’s Day Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and The Today Show.  The sites interface and search makes finding coupons fast and their policies are very clear and upfront.  Plus, they are the only place I’ve seen that slips in an extra .50 coupon (if they find a relevant coupon for you) to offset your processing fee.  Very thoughtful, in my opinion.  They are called the CouponClippers.

3b. Semi-Coupon Clipping Service


  • often cheaper for more coupons
  • no need to clip and collect newspaper circulars


  • shipping time
  • must buy in set lots
  • may have to buy from multiple sellers

You can find lots of coupons on eBay but usually from various sellers.  If you find a seller with a big inventory of coupons and ships fast, mark them as a favorite seller so you can go back to them later.  I found one that sold over 1600 items and has a 99.9% feedback score.  Check out The Corner Store For Coupons and see if they have coupons you use.

Tip: Manufacturer’s coupons are the best because you can layer them on top of a store’s coupon, for example, and get things REALLY cheap or even FREE!

How To Find Coupons Online For Groceries That Are On Sale

OK, now that you know how to get multiple coupons in case a great deal comes along, let’s check out an awesome FREE service that will 1) teach you a system that can save you up to 86% off your groceries consistently and 2) find awesome deals to implement the “Power Shopping” strategy (she doesn’t talk about this but her data base will find the deals for you).

  1. Register FREE at
  2. Click on “Grocery Deals By State” on the menu, pick your store, and click “Go”
  3. Sort by “% Saved,” make your list, and “Power Shop” your item is a steal!

Become a Professional Shopper With Tips From “Saving Money Through Power Shopping

Tip: Coupons that just came out usually do not produce the best deals.  Stores know that they will get a bunch of shoppers coming in with those coupons so they will keep the prices higher.  Again, wait for killer deals, then ATTACK!

Tip: Keep a list of items you use throughout the year that have a long shelf (freezer) life.  Label each item with the best retail price you’ve seen.  When you come across a deal significantly lower relative to the best retail price, go in for KILL (Power Shop)! Only Power Shop at the right time…when prices are rock bottom.

Tip: Generally speaking, items will fall to rock bottom prices about every 3 months.  This is when you get things 50% to 100% off retail.

Tip: Walmart has a price matching guarantee so you could one stop shop if you bring the ads to Walmart.  Here’s there  Price Matching Policy.

Not many people look at it this way but finding coupons online for groceries and other items is just as good, if not better, than making money.  If it took you 10 minutes to find a $5 coupon, that is equivalent to a $30/hour job, and you’ll have to pay income tax on that.

Now that you know how easy it is to find coupons online (for groceries and other products), DON’T EVER PAY RETAIL AGAIN!

Does SSL Certificate Help SEO?  And, how do you install Secure Sockets Layer if so?

The short answer is “yes.”  But, that alone will not make you suddenly rank for any keyword.  You still need good content, engagement, backlinks, and all those other SEO factors if you want to rank.  However, if all things were equal, then the HTTPS site would rank higher.  According to an article on Search Engine Land,

…Google says it has an impact on “fewer than 1% of global queries” but said they “may decide to strengthen” the signal because they want to “encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web.”

Moz did some research and found that there was a correlation between HTTPS and higher rankings when searches were done.  Brian Dean’s research of over 1 million searches also came to this same conclusion.

Besides SEO reasons, you’ll seriously want to consider SSL because now major browsers like Google Chrome -and soon Firefox- will be displaying symbols that makes your site look suspicious in the eyes of the visitor, which means more visitors bouncing off your site!  Here’s a quote from HREF’s site:

“Apart from the SEO benefit HTTPS will become more important for a different reason: Google’s Chrome browser will display a lock overlayed with a red X in the address bar for ALL pages that do not have a correct HTTP setup in the near future: Your website will look broken in the eyes of your visitors. Mozilla will likely adopt a similar policy in Firefox.”

Just recently I called GoDaddy for some help transferring a domain.  While I was on hold, guess what they had on their recording?  Yup, it was a recording promoting their SSL add on.  It said that Google is now giving websites with SSL more weight in terms of search engine rankings.

If you’re not a “techy” like me, installing this SSL thing is intimidating.  Watch the video below to see what I mean.

Easiest way to start a small business image

In today’s competitive global economy and America’s ever increasing cost of running a business, many employers are cutting hours, or down right laying off employees.  People are realizing they cannot depend on their employer,  and that they need to take control their economic destiny.  A business is the only way to earn income without depending on an employer.  So, what is the easiest way to start a small business?

In this post I will answer that question.


Easiest way to start a small business image

To start a brick and mortar business, the cost can range anywhere from $60,000 to over $800,000.  And, that’s just to start the business!  (click image above to see a chart of the various costs of start-ups  ) Not many people have that kind of money, therefore, making the dream to start a small business a non-reality.  Yes, you could apply for a loan, but, that is risky and totally UNNECESSARY.

With the invent of the internet, the barrier of entry to start a business has dropped tremendously.  This makes it possible for anyone with a computer and internet connection to start a small business … and reach over 3 BILLION people!!

That is better AND cheaper than what ANY small local business can do.

Therefore, the easiest way to start a small business by far is starting an online business.

What kind of business should you start?  Luckily, you can pretty choose anything, which means you can start a business you’re PASSIONATE about.  This makes it soooooo much easier for you to succeed.

You have talents and passions you were blessed with, and now you can exploit that to make a living!  How cool is that?  This is how the whole money making process works.

All you have to do is create a website and write about the thing you’re skilled at and/or passionate about.  Even all the “How To’s” and tools are already set up for you so there is no reason for you to take charge of your financial future.  You can watch a walk through video of what is available at Wealthy Affiliate University.

Can you gain financial freedom trading?

The short answer is yes, but it requires more than just knowledge.  There are people that have acquired enough knowledge about trading, but cannot apply them when real money is at stake.  They still have yet to master a level of self-control that often runs counter to natural human behavior, or at least come up with some way to control it.

Let me offer an example of self-control.  Let’s say Bob reads about and practices a rule that says invest no more than 20% of his total account in any given trade.  And let’s also say that he learned about a particular pattern and have traded that particular pattern for a year and found that 9 trades out of 10 have resulted in at least a 10% return over a 6 week period.

With that kind of return and a 90% success rate, he could make some serious money over a relatively short period of time if he just invested more per trade.  Sure, his chances of making a fortune is pretty darn good with a success rate like that.  Just make his millions and quit trading.  This, my friend, is greed talking.  Read page 42 in the classic trading book “Trading For A Living” and you’ll see the number one goal in money management is “long-term survival.”

But what happens when Bob suffers 10 losses in a row?  He will probably hesitate to jump back into the market and “wait and see,” only to find out that this was the moment he should have gotten back in.  Now this is only natural since after being beaten up several times, fear tells him to be cautious next time.

Can you see how becoming a successful trader will take time?  So, back to the question: Can you gain financial freedom trading?  Only if you’re willing to learn, make mistakes, lose money, learn more, never say “I got it,” and continue learning for the rest of your trading career.  You can get FREE Lessons and picks emailed from an Ex-Hedge Fund Manager instantly here.

Tip: If you’re expecting to make fast money, your are a gambler.  And you know who always ends up the winner, right?

Another thing, in order to gain financial freedom trading, one must build up enough capital (money) where the return on their total portfolio is enough to support their expenses and keep up with inflation.

For example, if one has $50,000 of trading capital and manages to realize a 20% return, he may set aside 5% for inflation and take only 15% of return for living expenses.  That’s only $7,500 a year (less taxes).  Is that enough to cover your expenses?  If yes, then you can gain financial freedom trading with only $50,000.  Not many people can live on $7,500 a year, but that’s why I wrote that cutting your expenses is one way to gain financial freedom faster.

So again, can you gain financial freedom trading?  It is possible but you need to realize that it is not easy money (although hot streaks may convince you that it is), learning about how you behave takes time, and you will have to build up a big chunk of change to support your living expenses.

Do you have experience with trading the markets?  Do you know what it means when they say the trader is the weakest link to any system?  Traders, please comment.

Easiest Business To Start With Little Money ImageOne of the easiest business to start with little, or even NO money, is selling custom products and having a company manufacture, fulfill, and provide customer service FOR you.

There are several things in your favor: 1)  You can create new products at will when new markets arise  2) Your product is UNIQUE so there is no real competition  3) You have ZERO inventory to buy, store, and manage  4) You don’t have to hire staff to prepare, pack, and fulfill your orders  5) You don’t have to deal with customer complaints!

Does that sound good?  You bet it is!

Well, a new company was launched by one of the top T-Shirt marketers in the Internet Marketing industry (Don Wilson) and he has built a platform from the ground up from a MARKETER’S perspective.   This separates itself from companies like CafePress, Zazzle, Threadless, Teespring, etc. This means YOU get all the tools AND training from someone who sold courses in this very subject for hundreds of dollars, teaching you how to market and sell your custom products.  But, because this is his company, you get all the training and resources FREE!

Consider yourself lucky to find out about such an opportunity because all’z it’s going to cost you to launch your business is FREE – NINTY – FREE!   Yup, nada!  You get the platform, tools, AND training for FREE!  Why?

If you make money, they make money.  You decide how much profit you want to make per sale by selling it for whatever you want.  They make a set fee for each item sold.  That’s a deal!

Currently they have shirts, mugs, necklaces, hats, and a few other stuff.

And get this, they have just launched an AWESOME FEATURE that will get you sales even EASIER.  Watch the video below for a peek:

You’ve heard it before.  You have to make the visitor know how the product will BENEFIT THEM, how it will solve THEIR problem(s), and other key triggers copywriters know what to include.

BUT, what if you can write copy that’s so good in warming the visitor up that it converts into sales …. and do it all in just MINUTES!?

How To Write Salescopy for Website Image

Well, now you can!

A new “fill in the blanks” software has just launched as part of a whole package that teaches you how to sell OTHER people’s products.

If you can get traffic you can make money…PERIOD! 

Free Traffic Image 01So, in this blog post I’m going to show you just that…how to get lots of FREE traffic, anytime, with less than an hours work , in 1 day, everyday.

REMEMBER: traffic is nothing more than a particular type of people that found your page because of an interest they had.  And, EVERY ONE of us has some need or want that we’re willing to take some kind of action.  Sometimes we buy that product or service that’s going to solve our problem, and sometimes we just want more information (in which case you can give it to them via an opt-in and market to them later, or put some (adsense) ads on the page).  The point is, with traffic, you can make money some how.

Sooooo, let’s learn how to get traffic fast  (be sure you know the 4 parts in this formula, and if you’re STILL having problems making money online, see the Bonus Help at the end)

Use The Power Of The Media

Everyday, something is talked about on the radio or TV, over and over, that makes you want to find more information about.  You’re not the only one.  And, you can exploit that if your know how.  This is the topic that’s in hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of other people’s minds.  If your friends and family talk about the same topic, you KNOW that topic is viral!

When people hear something on the radio or TV, they look for it onlineThis is where the savvy internet marketer comes in.

This is one method to getting FAST traffic becaus:

  1. the media is “advertising” for you.
  2. The competition is low 

(See below for “Quick Competition Tip”)

Finding The Keyword

If you keep using keyword techniques everyone else is using, competition will be tough.  So, here are just two techniques you can implement right now:

Finding Keywords Technique 1 (no expensive keyword tool needed)

Free Traffic Image 02Use a FREE keyword tool…your brain.  That right.  Let’s say you see a TV show talking about a bunch of quotes that Charlie Sheen made because it was so “out there.”  You gather all this information and let your brain spit out the keyword, “Charlie Sheen sayings.”  Do a quick competition check by putting your keyword in quotes.  If it’s 400 or less, it’s a go!

But what about the traffic stats, you say?  These keywords are so new, they don’t have stats according to Google.  I’ll get to the results after I tell you the other steps to getting FREE traffic in just 1 day.

Quick Competition Tip: If your initial competition check say over 400, keep clicking the last number on the bottom of the SERPs until you see image 4 message.

Finding Keywords Technique 2 – “Take Away The Middle”

If you’re not great at coming up with your own keywords, turn to Google…BUT, not their Adwords keyword tool.  Use their “real time” tool.

I’m sure you noticed Google’s suggestions as you typed something in the search box.  Those are generated by actual people typing in those keywords and Google Instant will show you the top related searches.   Now most people will type in a keyword and run through the alphabet before and/or after the keyword to get suggestions.  And this can yield some great low competition keywords. (we’ll call this technique “add to the ends” for reference sake )

But, I want to teach you the “take away the middle” technique to get MORE awesome hot topic keywords to generate lots of FAST traffic.

By doing the “add to the ends” technique mentioned above let’s say you came up with the keyword “charlie sheen new show.”  Now, let’s apply the “take away the middle” technique.

Go to Google and try this now:

  1. Type in “charlie sheen new show” in the search box.
  2. Highlight the word “new” and delete it.
  3. BAM!  Google tells us what people are searching for about this hot topic.  Could you have thought of that?

Free Traffic Image 07


Now, proceed to the next section to get some fast traffic.

Exploit (post Panda) Ranking Power

You can use any article directory you think has indexing and ranking power.  But, have been doing well post Panda.

  1. Write a UNIQUE (not spun) article on that keyword you chose.
  2. Put the keyword in the title of the article, and in the first paragraph ONLY.
  3. Now, write naturally to please the reader, NOT Google!  (If your keyword comes out naturally when you write, then that’s fine.  But, do not force it.)
  4. Put 1 or 2 anchor text links linking over to your webpage with more similar information (TIP: embed a related YouTube Video on your webpage so your anchor text can have the word “video” inside.  People love to see videos and will click over.  This is what you want).

Do NOT use a call to action in the anchor text such as “Click Here For Charlie’s Video” because it will not get accepted.  It NEEDS to flow, i.e. …Charlie Sheen has been going off the deep end lately.  In this controversial video, he said some offensive things…  (you can use “controversial video” as your anchor text because it flows).


How To Get Social Power For SEO (Twitter, G+, Facebook, PINterest)

It’s actually pretty easy.  If you write a quality and TIMELY article you can get social love.

Hot topics are TIMELY  so you got that covered.

But, if you have a quality, timely AND emotional triggering article, you can bet you will reap all the benefits of social love…TRAFFIC (TIP: put a nice image in your article so people (and you if you have an account) can PIN it).

That is the social confirmation Google loves, and it creates back links for you in the process, all AUTOMATICALLY …forever!


Results Of That Keyword “Charlie Sheen sayings” (generated with NO Keyword tool)?

  • Time to write Article > 15 minutes (your time will be different)
  • Time to get Indexed and Ranking in Google > 1 hour (after getting approved by Street Articles) and it Ranked #2
  • Traffic Article Received > 461 views over 2 days!

And that’s just ONE hot topic keyword!  How many variations can you think of with this one topic (see keyword technique 2 if you’re having trouble)?

Fact is, there are TONS of hot topics and millions of keywords that will get you ooooodles of traffic…FREE!

Did you know 95% of people who try to make a living online quit?  It’s because they’re expecting what the sales page tell them…:

“Make $100 a Day in Just 7 Days!”

I fall for it.  Most of us do.  But it’s completely misleading!

Can it be done?  You bet, and even more!

But, like every professional career, it takes schooling, skill development, and lots of ongoing help to make that kind of money, EVEN IF YOU OUTSOURCE.  I guarantee you NO NEWBIE made $100 in 7 days on his/her own.

This is where schooling (NOT just one magic guide) and a dependable, 24/7, support system can help you make consistent income.

The 3 Factors Of Finding Support

There’s a bunch of “gurus” that offer coaching, but it pretty much comes down to:

  1. who’s advice you trust
  2. what they’re charging for coaching
  3. and if they a vested interest in your success (is that their business?)

Free Traffic Image 11Out of frustration, I FINALLY looked into coaching.  And, to be honest, I foolishly didn’t listen to all their advice.  But, I now realize what they’ve been preaching is true.  There’s eternal benefits when you write good quality content.

People share what’s helpful, meaningful, and written, first and foremost, with them in mind.

EXAMPLE: My site that was NOT Search Engine Optimized but written just to help the visitor is the one getting the most traffic (on its own!) and is converting the best (12%!)

Who are these coaches?

For me personally I chose Kyle and Carson at Wealthy Affiliate University (now known as the Open Education Project).    But, again, it’s who ever YOU feel comfortable with.

What made me choose them?

  • Access To Two Coaches (Kyle and Carson.  Plus, I knew 2 Well Known members (“PotPieGirl” (Jennifer) and the “Bum Marketer” (Travis)) have also contributed to helping members inside and I wanted to get their advice, too.
  • Text and Video Tutorials
  • Live Webinars Every Friday
  • Free Hosting with Unlimited Websites
  • 3 Step WordPress Site Builder (an exclusive)
  • Constant Updating (over $6 million reinvested in this members only site).  One of the updates was a FASTER “Real Time” platform (now you can ask questions in real time, and whoever is logged in can Instant Message you any answers they know.  This is AWESOME when one of the “gurus” is on the Live Chat.  You’ll get answers immediately!)
  • …plus sooooo MUCH MORE you can check out for yourself (FREE entry as of this post).

If you have a Facebook account (to show you are a real person) you can sign up for FREE and ask whatever questions you may have.

If you want to learn how to make money on ebay in 2015, you’re in luck!!

I just found out that one of, if not, the best selling books on eBay (and making a living online in general) is FREE for a LIMITED TIME!  So, you best get over and download your copy of the Kindle version of the “Silent Sales Machine 8th Revised Update” here  (you don’t need a Kindle to read it).

You will learn that selling stuff on eBay is NOT your primary objective.  That’s right!  You are using eBay for the traffic it can get.   He teaches you how to exploit ebay to build a real Internet business.  And, why you should not begin with things like building a website, SEO (search engine optimization),  PPC (Pay Per Click), etc.

Alternatively, you can get a hard copy if that’s what you prefer, but it’s $25.

Again, download it now before you have to pay for it.

How To Make Money On eBay 2015 image



This post is going to show you how to advertise on facebook and make money withOUT using any (banned) scrapers like Social Lead Freak or paid tools like Interest Architect, Targeting Inspector, Data Reach, etc.  All that is required is a LITTLE bit of your brain and Google.

Most advertisers target common words that first pop into their heads.  Example: if you’re selling a golf product, people automatically think of words like golf, golfer, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, etc.  and enter that into the “Interests” section on Facbook’s Ad platform.

The problem with that is that most other advertisers think the same way!  When you have a bunch of advertisers competing for the same audience, a couple things are working against you.

One is your cost per click (CPC) probably will go up.  I say probably because Facebook is NOT a true auction based ads platform.   Source:  Kyle Bell and Jon Tarr, Facebook experts that has spend hundreds of thousands of dollars testing Facebook Advertising


TIP: This is important information because IF it was, your $20/day ad budget will vanish in a second.   If you were competing against a group of audience everyone is targeting, that demand would push up prices, right?  But, since it’s not, Facebook has some discretion.

What you want to do is set your daily budget to a low $5 – $10 a day.  The theory is since Facebook has 24 hours to spend ALL advertiser’s daily budget, they can still easily spend yours even if they give you the lowest CPC (since you have a low daily budget).  The other guy who has a $500 daily budget may never go through all his budget if Facebook gave him a low CPC.  Therefore, it’s to Facebook’s benefit to give him higher CPC’s so they can get as much money from him in 24 hours.

Of course Facebook will never admit this but this has been noticed during peak advertising times, such as Christmas.

So, if you want to scale a campaign that’s producing a positive ROI, just duplicate that campaign (just name it something like ‘campaign-2’) and keep the daily budget to something like $5-$10.


Another thing going against you when competing for the same audience is banner blindness.  The more ads a person sees, the more they disregard it.

So, what you want to do is find big groups of PASSIONATE people that love something that haven’t seen much ads.  This is what “Broad Targeting Formula” teaches you!  (If you’re an experienced FB advertiser, you can pick it up for $47 here)

Wouldn’t it be awesome to show your offer to a BIG group(s) of ultra niche TARGETED and PASSIONATE people?

Watch the video below to learn how to THINK in order to find your niche audience.



Like any ad campaign, it goes without saying: Monitor your Ad(s)!

I do it every 36-48 hours so that I have enough data to make an educated decision.   Why? —>  Ninja TIP:  Per “top level” FB guys…

Facebook’s algorithm is built to determine if your ad is good for your target audience within that timeframe.

That means if your ad starts out poorly, don’t give up on it.
That also means if your ad starts out great, don’t get overly excited.

Once your ad hits the 36-48 hour mark, the Facebook algorithm will decide if your ad is good or bad for your target audience.

Also, if I’m not getting AT LEAST a 2% Click Through Rate (CTR)  — this number is subjective but many Advertisers say this is average–, I will adjust the audience, the ad copy, or just pause it because something is not right.

And, of course, make sure you are converting (what ever your goal is).  Some advertisers just want people on their email list (and they will sell them later) and that is their conversion.  Others want to sell a product right away, in which case ROI is everything.  If after 50 -100 people see your offer and you do not get a sale(s), I would pause that ad and adjust.

Folks, Facebook as done ALL the work segmenting your audience for you.  It’s an advertiser’s dream!  If you learn how to TAKE ADVANTAGE of all what Facebook has done, you can MAKE SOME LOTS OF MONEY!


My suggestion: Unless you KNOW what you want to be, instead of taking up a course at your local college, learn  the INVALUABLE SKILL of marketing.  This will allow you to make money anytime you want, as long as Facebook is around (and, IMO, it’s not going away anytime soon!).

If you don’t have much experience with Facebook Marketing, get this complete Facebook course.  It’s only $17 right now.  You can find a college course for that price!

Can I make money with a broken Smartphone?

Is there even any value in a broken Smartphone?

How much can I get for my Smartphone?

In this post I’m going to answer all 3 questions.  Let’s begin.

Yes, believe it or not, you can make money with a broken smartphone.  I guess there’s a market for the metal in smartphones or something, but, people DO pay for broken phones.  The trick is finding a buyer via eBay or your local craigslist or better yet, a reputable business that buys smartphones.  No matter who you sell it to, just know that they will NOT give you what you want for your phone because they need to make a profit from their purchase.

The fastest and easiest way to make cash is to just go to a business that you know buys smartphones.

Below I will give you an example of  how easy it is to find out about how much you can make selling your phone.  BONUS: this place also pays for your shipping too so there are no out of pocket costs for you!  Typically they pay you with-in 24 hours of receipt. You have the choice of being paid via check or PayPal.

You probably won’t get top dollars for your used smartphone because this business must make a profit with your phone.  However, it’s probably the fastest way to sell it.

You can easily sell your smartphone here.


In this post, you will see proven psychological effects in the video, followed by examples of how you can use them in your marketing, or life in general.  Let’s get started Marketing Your Business Using Psychology In Mind.



Marketing your business using psychology in mind image 2a


1. Power of the Middle Psychological Effect:

Now that you know the middle object has a subconscious preference bias, whenever you want to sell a certain product, you can easily place / display that product in the middle of the multiple choices.  But, that’s an obvious use you probably thought of, right?  How about this one?

Let’s say your product is “expensive” in the eyes of your market.  How can we sell more of it despite of that?  Use the “power of the middle,” but only thing apply it to prices.  All you have to do is find similar products  that are “budget” caliber, “extravagant” caliber, and your “just right”-ly priced product right smack dab in the middle!


2. Foot In the Door Psychological Effect:

This works great if you provide services to local businesses (aka off-line marketing).  We all know that buying something expensive from a stranger right off the top won’t happen.  You will need to get to know them and their product very well before handing over you hard earned dollars.

But, what if that stranger was selling a book called “10 Ways to Save $50 On Your Next Grocery Store Visit” for only $1?  Would you be interested in buying it, and possibly “risk” the $1?  Chances are “yes” because you are making only a small commitment.  Now, when that same person contacts you to see how those tips worked for you, would you be willing to spend $10 on another cool item he/she has?  Probably, because you trust them more and he/she gave you a great product…all because he “got his foot in the door” with you.  So, if you’re an off-line marketer, go out and offer a killer deal (FREE even) to some local business just to “get your foot in the door.”


Skipped 3 and 4.


5.  The Silver Lining in the Cloud Psychological Effect:

It is guaranteed that every business will go through tough moments, whether it’s your bottom line, or an upset client / customer, a lawsuit, etc.  The key is, however, can you rebound from it?  This one is applicable to everyday life, too.

Every time something bad happens to you, just ask yourself, “how did I benefit from the experience?”   You will come up with an answer and instantly start rebounding and feeling better from that negative experience.  There is a famous quote by coach John Wooden that sums it up, “Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.


6.  Fake It ‘Till You Make It Psychological Effect:

Unless you’re living in a cave all by yourself, you will interact with people.  And, if you have a business, you’re going to have to sell….to people.  People buy from people they like, and no one likes grumpy people.  So, like the video says, if you’re not happy, wear a fake smile until you start feeling better.

Apply the “Silver Lining in the Cloud” technique mentioned above.  Do something nice for someone and make their day.  Ironically, making other people feel good makes YOU feel good, too.

The bottom line is, you have a lot of influencing power when people like you, and people like only happy people.  So, do what it takes to become happy and watch your network and influencing power explode.


7  The Power of Emotion Psychological Effect:

If you’ve studied consumer behavior, you know that people act on emotions, and not logic.  Logic is often used to help make the buying decision, but, ultimately people “pull the trigger” when emotion is stimulated.  When ever you write ad copy or speak to your prospect, use words that touch your target market’s nerve.  For example, if you’re selling baby items, parents are concerned with their child’s safety.  Therefore, you must make the parent FEEL safe by using words such as “lead free,” “soft,” “accident free,” etc.

Have you ever saw those commercials that ask for donations to save a pet?  Did you notice the sad song playing, the sad puppy dog eyes staring at you, the neglected pets in cages?  They know that people act on emotions, and that’s exactly what their commercial triggers.


8.  Everything is Relative Psychological Effect:

This is similar to the first psychological effect.  When you soak your hand in cold water, then later soak your hand in tap water, the tap water feels warm.  However, soak your hand in hot water, then later soak your hand in that same tap water and that water feels cold!  That’s the power of relativity.

So, how can you apply this to your marketing?  Well, you’ve seen it used all the time in those infomercials.  It starts off something like this:

For $20 you can get this product…but for this limited TV offer you get it at 50% off for just $10…BUT, act in the next 5 minutes and we’ll give you TWO of these for the same $10…etc, etc.

$5 each RELATIVE to the initial $20 offer seems gosh darn cheap, huh?  This is why they always let you see a higher price with a strike through mark and list the purchase price right next to it, just like the blue dot in the video:   $20  $5 (doesn’t it make the $5 seem “tiny?”)

On a similar note, how do you make people think your product is worth a lot more than what you sell it for?

There was a video mentioning that all you had to do was make your prospect think of a BIG number, i.e. ask them what they thought was a fair price for a VW Passat?  Then, ask them what do they think is a fair price for your product (assuming your product is less than the Passat).  Chances are they will price your product higher than you thought because they were exposed to a higher number prior to your question.


Skipped 9 and 10.


11.  Fear of Change Psychological Effect:

People in general don’t change for the better because they feel it is going to be hard.  When change is big, it IS hard because it’s “shocking.”  But, when change is small, it is easy, and that leads to consistency.    This is so powerful that it is DEADLY!  (ever heard the story that you can kill a frog by putting it in a pot of cold water, then turning up the heat slowly?  He won’t jump out because the temperature change is so small that he gets used to it, and thus, never jumps out.  He ends up boiling himself to death!)

You can exploit this psychological effect to your benefit.

What do you do a lot of?  Eat, sleep, shower, travel to work, go on the computer, etc.  Small changes in these activities will add up to BIG results because you will stick with it since it’s barely noticeable.  Crank it up a notch when you get used to the latest change.

How can you apply this to your business?  Learn from the cable companies.  Remember when your cable bill was just $26 a month?  What is it now?  Notice how they raised their prices gradually?  This is what you do with your product or service.  Whether you’re making your product smaller (and selling it at the same price) or increasing your price, make the change so small that your customers can tolerate it and eventually get used to it.


For psychological effects you can use in your business, I highly recommend  “Yes!: 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive.”  It’s is an awesome book to have at your finger tips.
