2021 coming up and How to Monitize your blog through Affiliate Marketing…

Are you afraid to start Affiliate marketing? I am, well I am just scared that it will not work for me, that is why I need to set the right expectations for myself, so I do not end up discouraged. Get yourself a diary where you can keep track of your goals and expectations.

Here is a lovely diary for the year 2021….

This is why I am writing this blog and doing some random research about monitization and affiliated marketing, to help myself to understand it better and hopefully will benefit others as well.

Unfortunately affiliate marketing is not easy. It’s not just a matter of setting up your website and start to promote your links. You will not achieve overnight success and you would need to work hard to make sales. I guess hard work pays off.

You would need to convince visitors what you are promoting is an amazing product and that they will not waste their money. People need to know that they can trust you with the product that you are advertising.

I also read about people making the mistake of writing bad content to their blog and adding as many clickbait as they can just to get people on their site. To generate great commissions you need to know what to say, when to say it and who you saying it to.

Here’s a book that might interest you or a friend (great gift), it’s a step by step guide for beginners to promote through WordPress…

Some people might have tried affiliated marketing and they failed over and over and given up. Well, I did as well and I am not giving up. I will try again and again and again and will make it work. I presume it is not everyone’s cup of tea.

Affiliated programs will always exist because companies always release new products and they need sales, just like you need sales to make commission. It is an amazing marketing platform and can be a win for both the seller and the affiliate if done correctly.

You will not get lots of likes and shares on social media if you are not willing to work hard by promoting your links, this is the only way you will be able to get sales. Don’t believe that you will not get commission from certain products, this I have read from various affiliate blogs claiming it’s certainly untrue. You need to know how to sell and to which type of client. This is why you need to know when and where to advertise your products.

When you join as an affiliate marketer you would also need to think about link-building, social media marketing, optimization, SEO and so forth. There’s many things you might need to learn before you start to become successful, however there is no harm in signing up as soon as possible to an affiliate program to get the basic understanding.

Never give up, try to learn from your mistakes. I certainly made some mistakes and am still not hundred percent sure what I should do next time, but hey it’s taking time to fully understand how the system really works…..crawl before you walk! Just remember that you always need to share your content and get people to engage with your site, this is very important for people to know where you publish and how often.

Thanks to so many affiliate programs for your advice, I took a bit from here and there and still need to learn a lot more. Next time I will continue this blog with another important lesson to be learned.

How to do blogging and affiliate marketing?

Some people can make money just by blogging and promoting products with affiliate marketing. So how can we as women do the same and have success by doing it?

Just to be fair, I know from experience that Affiliate Marketing is not an easy task and easy money and not a quick rich scheme. You would need commitment, experience, site traffic, etc. There are also different types of payment which are: Pay per sale, Pay per click and Pay per lead.

Affiliate Marketing will only work if you are willing to do your research and be serious about it.

To do your research you must need a reliable electronic device like the MacBook 13.3, recently rated as the best MacBook in 2020.

MacBook Air 13.3

  • Stunning 13.3-inch Retina display with True Tone technology
  • Backlit Magic Keyboard and Touch ID
  • Tenth-generation Intel Core i3 processor
  • Intel Iris Plus Graphics
  • Fast SSD storage
  • 8GB of memory
  • Stereo speakers with wider stereo sound, etc….

Terms and Metrics on Commision rate, etc

There are certain terms and metrics to know like Commission rate, Clickthrough rate, Earnings per 100 clicks, Average order Value, Reversal Rate and Conversion Rate. These terms and metrics are very important to understand and will be covered in my next blog as well as the types of payment. Consider to Subscribe to receive my next blog.

Did you know?

Merchants have the potential to earn more from affiliate programs because they are not paying for marketing costs, however they still need to do some marketing on the side to gain exposure.

Maybe you have heard that Affiliate Marketing is easy to do and it will give you success overnight. Well, you must be able to work hard and promote products effectively on your blog. Don’t write just because you want to sell the products, instead, write creative content and do not add too many links.

You want to focus on a few links that will get the attention of the reader.

Blogging can be hard if you are in a noisy environment. The Sony Head set is all you need to block out noise and to focus on your Blog and Affiliate Marketing.

Remember, Affiliate programs lets companies show their new products through affiliate sites, it’s a never-ending cycle. To get readers to your blog, you need to work hard to get it out there.

3 simple focus steps 2020 (smart goal setting)

Are you sometimes struggling to focus on yourself and what you need to do, especially when you are working on a smart goal for yourself or business? Or, if you need to study for your upcoming exam?

Here are 3 ways you can help yourself to start effective focus habits…

  • Have no phone conversations or texting during your focus time. The phone can be a huge distraction these days, for example you might have had a great idea in mind just before you got distracted by your ringing phone, now it’s gone because you focused on your call or got distracted by the sound of a notification.
  • Have a quiet space of isolation to focus, like a room or garden area. A tranquil space is what you are looking for, where your focus is at it’s best. Play some favorite background music, but keep it low volume so you can still focus on your smart goal or task. Wireless headphones can be a great tool to block out background noise for focus time. My recommendation for a good quality headphones (click image below) and it could be a great gift as well.
  • Wake up early and start a morning routine without electronics, which will help you to have a healthier and less stressed morning. Go for a walk and listen to nature sounds or write the book you always wanted to write in a comfy chair.

Great weekly, monthly and yearly planners:

There are many ways to help yourself to stay focused, (click on image below). The planner is also a great gift for someone for the holidays.

For more information on one on one Goal setting sessions and or how to stay focused, you can contact me directly and I will give you some planners and goal setting charts for free. Email me on ladiesenrichmentclub@gmail.com or visit our LEC Youtube channel to get inspired by women worldwide in business.

I will be back with more blogs on goal settings and how to stay focused on achieving them.

Want to start your own Photography business in 2020 to earn more and spent less?

Greetings readers,

These days some of us want to start our own small business OR much bigger business (if you are brave enough). Saving on advertisement costs will save you some money which you can rather use to buy your own camera equipment and if you invest in a starter photography pack now, you will be able to create your own product, business or service photoshoots.

Online Marketing is one of the more talked about topics on many posts I read on social media.

In order to promote your product successfully, you would need to have good images to make it stand out above the rest. How do you do that? Well, just like I did a few years back.

In 2008 I started my freelance photography business, it started slow and it took me a long time to learn the settings of the camera and lights. In 2020 there are many options available to do a successful photoshoot in the comfort of your home.

Mentioned on the website atozphotographydubai.com there’s a few camera options for you to consider that will not break the bank. These listed options are important for you to start a home based studio, later you might need more equipment.

Beginner photographers should take my advice, you Do Not Need expensive photography equipment just yet if you are starting out. Some famous photographers started with their own make shift lights and small studio spaces.

Nowadays I use professional Canon cameras and lenses, but in the beginning I used a beginner camera set (as mentioned on the website) to learn and fail and learn and getting better! Yes, you might need to read more on photography to understand dept of field etc, but it is a fun hobby and you can make money by helping others to do photoshoots as you get better. Remember to practice on your family and friends, it is the easiest way to learn and do photoshoots on products readily available in your house.

Check out some of my products on the Redbubble store, these images on the products was taken by me (some many years back).

Enjoy photography and always try new ways to do photoshoots by bringing out your personal style.

4 Keys to Healthfulness

Hi readers, I read this article by Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD and wanted to share her very important behaviors with you, especially during stressful times.

Photo by Trang Doan on Pexels.com

10 Healthy behaviors (beyond the four basics) that contribute to wellness and satisfaction with one’s lifestyle:

  • Brush and floss daily to keep your teeth and gums healthy and free of disease.
  • Get a good night’s rest. Well-rested people not only cope better with stress, but may also have better control of their appetites. Research has shown that a lack of sleep can put our “hunger hormones” out of balance — and possibly trigger overeating.
  • Enjoy regular family meals. This allows parents to serve as good role models, can promote more nutritious eating, and sets the stage for lively conversations. Being connected to family and/or friends is a powerful aspect of a healthy life.
  • Smile and laugh out loud several times a day. It keeps you grounded, and helps you cope with situations that would otherwise make you crazy. Read the comics, watch a sitcom, or tell jokes to bring out those happy feelings.
  • Meditate, pray, or otherwise find solace for at least 10-20 minutes each day. Contemplation is good for your soul, helps you cope with the demands of daily life, and may even help lower your blood pressure.
  • Get a pedometer and let it motivate you to walk, walk, walk. Forget about how many minutes of activity you need; just do everything you can to fit more steps into your day. No matter how you get it, physical activity can help defuse stress, burn calories, and boost self-esteem.
  • Stand up straight. You’ll look 5 pounds lighter if you stand tall and tighten your abdominal muscles. Whenever you walk, think “tall and tight” to get the most out of the movement.
  • Try yoga. The poses help increase strength and flexibility and improve balance. These are critical areas for older folks especially, and both men and women can benefit.
  • Power up the protein. This nutrient is an essential part of your eating plan, and can make up anywhere from 10%-35% of your total calories. Protein lasts a long time in your belly; combine it with high-fiber foods and you’ll feel full on fewer calories. Enjoy small portions of nuts, low-fat dairy, beans, lean meat, poultry, or fish.
  • Last but not least, have a positive attitude. Do your best to look at life as if “the glass is half full.” You must believe in yourself, have good support systems, and think positively (“I think I can, I think I can…”) to succeed.

Piperinox is a food supplement that supports weight management and has an extremely rich formula, which includes as many as 7 natural ingredients. Piperine – black pepper extract, the use of which results in weight loss, plays the key role in the product. Piperinox is a unique blend that is appreciated by all those trying to lose weight.

The product supports the digestion process, accelerates the metabolism, helps maintain normal blood sugar levels and allows the body to cleanse toxins. Piperinox is a great choice for all, regardless of the degree of excess weight or obesity and lifestyle.

See how well you measure up on the researchers’ four keys to healthfulness:

Stay safe and stay healthy.

4 Pillars to a meaningful life

Greetings readers, today I want to share a short but meaningful article written by Emily Esfahani Smith.

Being happy is the goal in life, isn’t it? Isn’t that what we all aim for? For most people it looks something like this: good grades, popularity at school, good education, great job, ideal life partner, beautiful home, money for great vacations.

Meaningful

Yet, many people have achieved exactly this and still feel empty and unfulfilled.

Is there something wrong with expecting happiness to result from success in life? Clearly it’s not working.

The suicide rate is rising around the world, and even though life is getting objectively better by nearly every conceivable standard, more people feel hopeless, depressed and alone.

Is there more to life than trying to be happy?

Writer Emily Esfahani Smith thinks so.

In her search she found out that it’s not a lack of happiness that leads to despair. It’s a lack of having meaning in life.

What is the difference between being happy and having meaning in life?

“Many psychologists define happiness as a state of comfort and ease, feeling good in the moment. Meaning, though, is deeper. The renowned psychologist Martin Seligman says meaning comes from belonging to and serving something beyond yourself and from developing the best within you,” says smith.

“Our culture is obsessed with happiness, but I came to see that seeking meaning is the more fulfilling path. And the studies show that people who have meaning in life, they’re more resilient, they do better in school and at work, and they even live longer,” she adds.

Her five-year study led her to the discovery of four pillars than underpin a meaningful life. The first three I might have guessed, but the last one caught me off guard. And it’s really a crucial aspect of the meaning we give to our lives.

“The first pillar is belonging. Belonging comes from being in relationships where you’re valued for who you are intrinsically and where you value others as well,” says Smith.

But she warns that not all belonging is desired belonging. “Some groups and relationships deliver a cheap form of belonging; you’re valued for what you believe, for who you hate, not for who you are.”  This is not true belonging.

For many people, belonging is the most essential source of meaning. Their bonds with family and friends gives real meaning to their lives.

The second pillar or key to meaning is purpose, says Smith, and it’s not the same thing as finding that job that makes you happy.

The key to purpose says Smith is using your strengths to serve others. For many people that happens through work and when they find themselves unemployed, they flounder.

The third pillar of meaning is transcendence. Transcendent states are those rare moments when you lose all sense of time and place and you feel connected to a higher reality.

“For one person I talked to, transcendence came from seeing art. For another person, it was at church. For me, I’m a writer, and it happens through writing. Sometimes I get so in the zone that I lose all sense of time and place. These transcendent experiences can change you.”

So we have belonging, purpose and transcendence.

Now, the fourth pillar of meaning is a surprising one.

The fourth pillar is storytelling, the story you tell yourself about yourself.

“Creating a narrative from the events of your life brings clarity. It helps you understand how you became you.

“But we don’t always realize that we’re the authors of our stories and can change the way we’re telling them. Your life isn’t just a list of events. You can edit, interpret and retell your story, even as you’re constrained by the facts.”

This is so true. It boils down to perspective and that can make all the difference: the difference between a miserable life plagued with misfortune or an inspirational life filled with gratitude and insight.

No matter what has happened in your life to break you, you can heal again and find new purpose in life like so many people who have allowed the bad in their lives to be redeemed by the good.

Stay safe and enjoy your life.

30 Minutes morning break?

Take a Morning break…

So often life can get too busy and you have lots of things on your mind.

Try to make a new routine and start your morning half an hour earlier by taking a walk, reading a book, say your morning prayer, meditate or write a story. It’s so good for your mental health.

It’s essential to get a good nights rest if you want to wake up earlier. Just try it for yourself, it’s an uplifting experience that might stick for the rest of your life.

Life is precious, we saw it during these past 8 months with COVID-19. Live your life one second at a time, make the best of your day by blessing someone today even if it’s just with a smile on your morning walk, or giving a homeless a bag of groceries.

Anything good is better than Nothing.

I took a morning walk today with my family before school and work, we all felt refreshed and ready for our new day.

Stay safe and enjoy your life.
