If there is one thing we know about SEO it’s that finding profitable, low-competition, power keywords can make all the difference in your quest to dominate the search results.
But it can be hard to find them. Unless you know what to look for and where to look for them.
Unfortunately, Marie did not.
So we changed all of that and gave her 3 of our not-so-secret secret tricks for finding power keywords that will not only have you ranking, but will get you banking…the big bucks.
Want to know what they are? [Keep Reading]
Let’s face it: When you are gearing up to make some big changes in your life (like, starting your own business!) a lot of fears and anxieties start to creep in.
You can start to doubt yourself, your abilities and the reason why you are leaving your old, comfortable life behind for a whole new life of uncertainty.
Which is exactly what Rachael emailed us about this week.
Now, even though we have dealt with countless fears, anxieties, doubts and limiting beliefs surrounding our decision to run an online business we didn’t think we were fit to dish out advice on how to properly overcome these common fears.
Fortunately, our friend Sebastiaan van der Schrier from Social Anxiety Solutions is. He is a social anxiety coach we have met here in Chiang Mai and has helped a whole slew of us webpreneurs overcome our self-imposed fears and limiting beliefs.
So we put him to work and got him to dish 3 actionable strategies you can use right now to shift your mindset and reframe your fears. [Keep Reading]
There tends to be a lot of hype and a lot of bullshit surrounding affiliate marketing; which can make it a tad difficult for someone to determine what they should or shouldn’t be focusing on with their website.
Which is exactly what Steven is struggling with this week.
You see, our man Steve wrote into us looking for a little clarity as to why his sites aren’t making any money—even though he’s been at it for 8 months and gets pretty decent traffic.
Instead of us picking apart his entire business, we thought we would dish out our 3 golden rules that we run all of our sites by. [Keep Reading]
The allure of working under a palm tree. The promise of six figure years. The enchantment of the 4 hour work week. The expectation that it will all work out once you hit “publish” on your first post.
We hear it far too often: The former 9-5′er quitting their soul-sucking job to live the dream and assuming it will all work out perfectly. Because really, how hard could it be?
That’s why when Laura wrote in to us asking what her and her boyfriend should expect if they chose to quit their jobs, we figured it was time we busted out a reality check! [Keep Reading]
A few weeks ago Ashton Kutcher gave a speech at an awards ceremony that made all the girls scream (shocking, I know), went viral and appeared in my Facebook feed for, oh, 2 weeks straight.
While the speech was good there was one thing he said that truly resonated with me:
“Opportunity looks a lot like work.”
The minute those words left his lips I wanted to jump up and scream “I love you Ashton!” in unison with the rabid tweens.
But since it was just me in the apartment I figured my efforts would be futile. So I decided to write about it instead. [Keep Reading]
Hot damn! It’s heeeerrrreee! If you could hear the ear-piercing frequency at which I’m squealing right now, you would be…well…you would probably be deaf.
But moving on.
Screw Qs is finally here, baby! Our little web show is launching today and we couldn’t be more excited to show you what we’ve been working on for the past few weeks.
This week we have our first ever (obviously!) Q to Screw, and it comes from Mark who wants to know whether or not he should quit his job before he is actually making any money with his affiliate sites.
We figured it was the perfect question to kick the party off with as so many of you have written into us asking whether or not you should just say “screw it”, quit your job and devote all your time to building up your online business. [Keep Reading]
It’s no secret that we have been a little hesitant to loosen the reins on our business and hand over some of the responsibility to someone we have only ever met on a computer screen.
We hmm’d and hawed, wrote out a list of pros and cons and came up with worst case scenarios until we finally decided to stop being pussies and just take the plunge.
It’s been quite the ride so far—full of ups and downs, sighs of relief and feelings of disappointment.
The good news is however, we are making progress (slowly but surely) in finding and creating the perfect team for us—thank tha lawd!
So in the interest of helping someone else make the transition from working ON their business instead of working IN their business, we’ve put together a few things we’ve learned along the way… [Keep Reading]
A few weeks back I had a chat with my sister-in-law over a (big) glass of wine about being honest, and how it is truly the only way to behave in business.
Fast forward a couple days later and a blogpost sauntered into my inbox from one of my favourite bloggers on the web – Ash from The Middle Finger Project – about opening up and being unabashedly honest, and it ignited something in me.
It stirred a desire deep down inside, daring me to be utterly honest about my life. [Keep Reading]
I used to hate the ‘F’ word. I cringed each time I thought of it and felt an overwhelming sense of unease every time I felt as though it might be creeping into my life.
I have since learned how essential that one tiny ‘F’ word is to my personal development; because without failure I wouldn’t be where I am right this very minute.
Oh. Wait. Did you…? You didn’t think I meant I hated THE ‘F’ word did you? Fuck no! I love that word! But today I’m talking about my other favourite ‘F’ word – failure – and why it is utterly crucial to embrace it in order to become who you truly wish to become.
Get ready for a story because I have a lot to say… [Keep Reading]
We’ve been on a mission lately to become more productive throughout our day and work smarter, not harder.
We have been getting up earlier, exercising daily, juicing, eating healthy, visualizing, meditating, getting organized in our business, outsourcing and really trying to take things to the next level – not only for our own benefit but so we can figure out systems that can work for you as well, if you so choose to screw the 9-5.
And it’s working! Hot damn, it’s actually working!
Not only are we getting more done but the tasks we are finishing are having more of a direct effect on our business and our websites.
But it wasn’t always that way. If we think back to six months ago we realize that we were spinning our wheels, willing the universe to add just one more hour to each day. [Keep Reading]
