How to Motivate to Work? Don’t do Anything!

How to Motivate to Work

Do your work, This guy is watching!

Have you ever felt unmotivated to start your work and get it done? Have you ever thought how to motivate yourself to work? Don’t worry probably all of us feel it sometimes.

But the difference between the winners and the losers is how they react to that feeling. The losers will give the feeling win. The winners can change their feeling and after 5 minutes they will feel motivated to work again. How do they do it? I have a trick for you.

After reading this text you don’t need to wonder anymore how to motivate to work.

Analyze Yourself

When you feel the unwillingness to work what do you usually do?

Do you scroll Facebook’s news feed?
Do you play something TOTALLY USELESS with your phone?
Do you organize your papers?
Do you read blogs on the Internet?

Notice one thing: Usually, you are doing something. You are doing something that you shouldn’t.

You are doing something that seems useful but still it’s not the work that you should be doing.

Try my exercise!

About the Exercise

I want to mention that this exercise is highly effective if you do it well.

The point is that you don’t give yourself an alternative to doing something that would feel somehow useful. Don’t start to read the newspaper when you are doing the exercise. Don’t start to plan your weekend.

The idea is not to do anything.

You are giving yourself two alternatives:

1.Not doing anything

2.Working.

If you are a human being, homo sapiens, sooner or later you want to choose the alternative number 2, working.

How Do People Fail?

Some people fail because they give themselves more options. They give themselves the option number 3: do something useless that feels somehow useful.

STOP DOING IT NOW!

Sit down like this orangutan and don't do anything. After a while working seems so interesting.

Sit down like this orangutan and don’t do anything. After a little while working seems so interesting.

Try This!

Step 1 Set 5-minute timer and start

Step 2 Sit down on the floor

Step 3 Don’t to anything.

If you feel like taking your phone, don’t do it. Just sit. Do it for 5 minutes. I mean don’t do anything for 5 minutes. Just sit with your brain OFF-mode.

Let me repeat.

Don’t.
Do.
Anything.

Sooner or later you will feel so bored that working starts to feel very interesting option.

Before the exercise, you can put the 5-minute timer. Start working right away when you feel like it again. Most of the time you don’t want to sit there and wait for 5 minutes because it feels like a long time if you are not doing anything.

In my opinion, motivational techniques can be very useful if you are building your own online business and being your own boss.

More ways to motivate yourself to work

This awesome tip was found on one great article where you will find 5 ways to motivate yourself to do work.

I’m willing to hear your experiences after doing the exercise. What did you think about the other 4 ways to motivate yourself to work?

5 Benefits of Social Media Marketing for Bloggers

Social Media Marketing for Bloggers

Social Media is an Incredible Resource for Bloggers

Today I’m going to give 5 benefits of social media marketing for bloggers. Read these carefully if you are a blogger and especially if you want to earn income from your blog.

Social media is an awesome tool for all bloggers and online marketers. You can engage with people, find new customers, market your brand and the sky is the limit.

5 Benefits of Social Media Marketing for Bloggers

1.More Traffic. You can share the links to your blog posts and articles. People in social media click those links which will mean more traffic to your blog.

You can use several ways to encourage people in social media to come to your website. For example use images, use questions and encourage action.

When people see that your content is valuable they will start to share your website in their social circle’s which allows you to get even more and more traffic.

2.More Customers. More traffic to your website will lead to more customers which will very probably lead to more revenue. Let’s say, for example, that the traffic of your blog is 5,000 visitors/month and 1% of them end up buying something. That makes 50 customers per month.

Then after social media marketing the traffic in your blog increases to 10,000/month and still 1% of them end up buying your product. Now you have already 100 customers every month.

3.Increased Brand Awareness. You can build your own brand in social media. Put your blog’s logo everywhere on the social networks. Leave tracks of your blog. And don’t worry that people will not get bored with your logo.

Think about Coca-Cola, for example. Everyone knows the brand. Why are they still marketing their brand everywhere? Because if they wouldn’t market it people would forget it over the time in the long run. But now when they put their ads everywhere and people can see their logo it’s easy to remember.

You can use the same strategy in your own social media marketing. Leave the tracks.

4.More Authority. More traffic, more customers and increased brand awareness. All of this will together lead to more authority. You will become better known in your niche and probably you can become a famous blogger.

It’s always beneficial to have more authority in the online world. People will trust you more, they will engage with you more and they will buy from you.

Become the authority. Continue building your blog and marketing it in the social media.

5.More Revenue. This is one of the most interesting parts. All 4 benefits that I mentioned before will eventually lead to more revenue. Social media marketing will allow you to earn more from your blog.

Sometimes you can even use some money for to market your blog in social media in order to get profit. Invest $10 in social media marketing and get $20 profit. But be careful when investing in social media marketing. You can end up losing money if you don’t know what you are doing.

=> Become More Effective on Social Media with MassPlanner!

Conclusion

Social media marketing can be ultimately the powerful tool for bloggers. I would say that it’s the must. Here is the little recap of the benefits so you can remember them better.

1.More Traffic
2.More Customers
3.Increase Brand Awareness
4.More Authority
5.More Revenue

I still want to highlight that social media marketing will be a powerful tool only if you use it in a right way. Scrolling Facebook’s news feed and watching useless Youtube videos for many hours IS NOT SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING. It’s only the waste of time.

You can end up spending hundreds of hours on social media if you don’t know the right way to use it.

You need to learn how to do social media marketing effectively. My favorite place to learn social media marketing for bloggers is Wealthy Affiliate.

Here are two powerful lessons of social media marketing. I’m sure that you will like them!

How to Learn to Write a Blog? – 3 Steps to Become an Awesome Blogger

How to Learn to Write a Blog

Start Blogging Today!

Nowadays more and more people are interested in blogging and for a good reason. Writing a blog can be fun and you can earn the full-time income by writing a blog. But If you don’t have former experience of blogging, you may ask, “How to Learn to Write a Blog?”

Writing a blog is a skill that anyone can learn. I want to highlight it, Anyone can learn to write well!

Today I’m going to give you 3 steps that you can become a wonderful blogger.

Step 1 – Learn from the Professional Bloggers

When you are learning a new skill there is a way to speed up the process. You don’t need to reinvent the bicycle.

Learn from others who are professional bloggers. They have great tips how to get started, how to become better and how to write well. If you don’t know any professional writers, don’t worry.

Wealthy Affiliate is an online university that teaches you everything about writing a blog (and how to earn money with your blog). Their comprehensive training teaches you

  • How to build a blog
  • How to add images
  • How to write in an interesting way
  • How to get traffic to a blog
  • And much more.

You don’t need to become a professional but even if you are writing a blog for fun it makes it easier when you get some great tips from the experienced bloggers. And would it be fun to earn little extra income while blogging?

You can read my thorough review of WA here or you can claim your 10 free video lessons right here.

Step 2 – Write, Write, Write

If you want to become a better in writing blogs you need write a lot. There is no shortcut.

But the good news is:

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great” -Zig Ziglar

(See my text -> Perfection – Not Required in Online Business)

You will become better when you practice and I recommend to write daily.

As you write something daily, writing will become your second nature. Think for example about riding a bicycle or driving a car. You don’t need to think about the process anymore because you have done it so much. The same will happen with writing. Just keep on doing it and it will feel as natural as breathing.

(Writing a lot will also help you to get ranked in Google. When you publish something every day you have much more content to be ranked in the search engines. If you, for example, write one post a day that means 365 posts in one year. Compare if you write only 1 post a week which makes 52 posts/year. 365 > 52.)

How to Learn to Write a Blog

Write Daily – Improve Daily

Step 3 – Reflect and Improve

As Ziglar said, you don’t have to be great to start. But after starting it’s important to learn and become better. Never stop learning.

Learning makes writing a blog also more interesting and gives satisfaction when you can compare your texts now and after one year. You can see how much you have improved and it motivates you to learn more.

In order to become a better writer you can for example

  • Ask feedback from the professional bloggers (in Wealthy Affiliate)
  • Ask feedback from your friends (but keep in mind to take only what is constructive because some of your friends probably are not very professionals in blogging)
  • Analyze your own texts. Read your texts with the “visitors eye’s” and think. What things keep your attention first? Are your texts easy to read? Are they convincing? What could you make better?

People who have written a blog for 5 years can still learn something new.

You can also start learning other things related to your blog. How to get ranked in Google, how to get more visitors to your website, how to do money with your blog using affiliate marketing and so on. The sky is the limit.

3 Steps to Become an Awesome Blogger

1.Learn from the Professional Bloggers
2.Write, Write, Write
3.Reflect and Improve

I really hope these 3 steps will help you to learn to write a blog and become an awesome blogger.

How Do People Make Money with Affiliate Marketing? – And with ONLY ONE SALE!

How Do People Make Money with Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing can be very powerful!

People make tons of money online. Have you ever wondered, “How do people make money with affiliate marketing?” Keep on reading and you will find out something surprising!

Today we live the year 2016. Who knows what will happen in 2021 or who knows how your life would be if you have chosen differently 2011.

I can hear you asking, “What do you mean by choosing differently??

Let me explain. If you are working in a job where you get active income instead of passive income you will be paid for every hour you work. Right?

What if you would have started a work in 2011 that would generate your income even today? Even if you would be sleeping or in Zaku Zaku Island in the middle of nowhere. 😉

The Power of 1 Sale. $1,400!

Here -> $1,400 commission on 1 WA sale! an online businessman Alex Sol explains how he made $1,400 with one single sale. And he wasn’t even selling his own product but promoting the other person’s product.

Let’s imagine if you would have started affiliate marketing in Wealthy Affiliate in 2011. Then someone bought the yearly premium membership. You got a $175 commission.

Then he learned to do online business (thanks to Wealthy Affiliate) and he continued to the community. After 5 years he has paid 5 x $175 = $875 in your pocket. And you only made one referral.

One link in your social media, one email, one link in your website or one link in the forum or anywhere. ONE LINK! One referral. 875$! That’s powerful! And totally realistic.

Let’s imagine if there would have been 5 people in 2011 who got interested in the online business by your referral. All 5 became successful and continued in WA for 5 years with the yearly membership. How much commission that would have meant for you?

5 x 5 x $175 = $4,375!

Think about it. Only 5 persons.

The Another Fast Way to Big Money with Affiliate Marketing

In affiliate marketing, you are earning commissions from the sold products. The commissions can be 4% or 80%. The product you sell can be $5 or $5,000.

The great way to earn income as an affiliate is selling expensive products with the good commission. Most of the time it’s quite hard to find such products. But finding expensive products with the lower commissions is easier.

Let’s imagine that you have a website that promotes fitness products. You can link for example treadmills, gym machines, and other equipment.

For example the price of the treadmill $1,299.00. Let’s say 5% commission for you (can be 10% also if you are doing well on Amazon). You make $65 for every sale.

$999,99 gym machine with 10% commission means $100 for every sale.

A comprehensive set of high-quality dumbbells $5,322 with 10% commission means $532 for every sale!!

People buy also expensive products online. Would it be fun to get your own share of the market?

Learn Affiliate Marketing

The process of affiliate marketing is easy to learn

The Process of Affiliate Marketing – Simple!

1.The company sells a product
2.You promote their product (=Leave a link of their website somewhere.)
3.Someone buys the product
4.You earn the commission.

The process explained more in detail in my other article here -> What is Affiliate Marketing Online? – Explained Simply.

Do You Want to Earn with Affiliate Marketing? 

There are hundreds (or thousands) of affiliate programs on the Internet with the recurring passive income possibility.

Don’t be sad if you didn’t start affiliate marketing in 2011. You can still start it today and think about how happy you will be for your decision in 2021.

If you don’t start today you will never know what you missed by walking pass the opportunity.

Wealthy Affiliate is an online community and training that teaches everything you need to learn to become a successful affiliate marketer. But don’t be fooled, you need to do your own part also!

Is Bring the Fresh a Scam? – 2017 Review

Bring the Fresh Review – Is Bring the Fresh a Scam?

Name: Bring the FreshBring the fresh

Website: www.BringTheFresh.com

Price: ~$60 to start (+ upsells)

Owners: Kelly Felix

Overall Rank: 75 out of 100

 

 

Introduction

I found the program called Bring the Fresh and I head to their website. The page seems appealing with all of the fancy colors.

Then I click to watch the introduction video which shows more or less the same message as most of the make-money-online programs, “Are you tired of bad programs? Our program is the best!” Typical story.

I scroll down the page and see a lot of testimonials (see the example below)

Is Bring the Fresh a Scam

Sounds interesting…

Although I was quite skeptical about those numbers, the testimonials arouse my curiosity.

I see the button, “Let me join – RISK-FREE.” That sounds nice! I think that probably I can have a free trial account and try this program for a while.

WHAM! The next page opens where I’m asked to pay 55€ (=$62) in order to get in. I don’t feel like putting my money on the program that I don’t know.

The first impression with Bring the Fresh program wasn’t very nice. No trial account. Pay 55€ to try the program.

I decide to keep my money at least for a while and some thorough research about the program.

Today I will share my findings:

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Step-by-step training
  • Owners update the training and the service to keep it up-to-date
  • Easy to start
  • The founder has a long experience of online marketing
  • 60-days money back guarantee

Cons:

  • No free trial. Costs 55€/$60 to start
  • A lot of “hype” and enormous promises
  • Gives the false impression that earning money online happens in a few weeks without a great effort
  • Upsells
Is Bring the Fresh a Scam

60-days money back guarantee

What Bring The Fresh Provides and Who Is It For?

Bring the Fresh is an affiliate marketing training course. The subject of the training is more or less the same as in Niche Blitzkrieg, Affilorama, and Wealthy Affiliate (my #1 recommendation).

So the training covers

  • How to find the good niche
  • How to create a website
  • How to generate traffic
  • How to get ranked in the search engines
  • How to monetize your website
  • And other important topics related to affiliate marketing

BTF provides a comprehensive video training. There are many successful people who have started earning money online after their course. The teaching style in BTF is entertaining and educative at the same time. It uses fancy colors and relevant examples which makes studying easier.

The training is designed for the beginners so you can start it even if you don’t previous experience from affiliate marketing.

BTF Community and Support

Bring the Fresh is a community-based program which makes it better and easier to learn. You can talk with the people who have already succeeded in the online business and learn from them.

You can ask questions in the forum and someone will always answer. The community consists of +20,000 people (although probably some of them have already quit).

The great thing in the support is that you can contact the owners directly. This feature is certainly valuable because not in every program the founders are active.

Bring the Fresh Review

The message from the founder.

The founder Kelly Felix has a long experience of online marketing which is definitely a good thing. You don’t only need to trust in his words because you can find the on the Internet. So at least the founder seems quite reliable.

Anyway, he is a “hard-boiled” businessman who also wants to get profit from his customers.

BTF Price

The pricing in Bring the Fresh is quite shady. Right away when you want to register, you need to pay about $60.

They don’t explain will there be any upsells or not.

But I made a little research and many people who had more experience with BTF said that there are so many upsells!

I don’t like that fact because they don’t say it right from the start. For example in Wealthy Affiliate, there are only fixed prices that you know right from the start. No shady upsells like in BTF.

My Final Opinion of Bring the Fresh

In their front page, they market Bring the Fresh with the following phrase, “There are only TWO kinds of people who come to this website. People who make MONEY AND people who make EXCUSES.” (See the image below)

Bring the fresh Review

The description could be somehow through because many people are making excuses like, “I don’t have skills to earn money online.” “I’m too old (or too young).” and so on.

I know by experience that anyone can learn to earn money online. But Bring the Fresh is not the best resource for that. Their training can teach you several things but still there are better products out there with the better training and with the better price/quality rate.

If you are interested in earning money online I certainly prefer to start from Wealthy Affiliate rather than Bring the Fresh.

 

Bring the Fresh is definitely not a scam. It is a program worth trying and you can definitely benefit from their training. But I need to admit it’s not the best program out there.

-> Start learning and earning today in Wealthy Affiliate(Better training and service than BTF.)

Bring the Fresh at a Glance…

Name: Bring the Fresh
Website: www.bringthefresh.com
Price: ~$60 to start + upsells

Online Business vs Offline Business – Which one do you prefer?

Online Business vs Offline Business

New world, New Opportunities.

Business is simple. Someone has a need and you will fill that need. Someone wants to buy something that you sell it. Today we are going to compare Online Business vs. Offline Business!

If we go back in time 30 years (or 20 years), there wasn’t such an opportunity like the online business. The business happened mainly in the physical world.

But the Internet has brought a lot of new possibilities.

What are the similarities and the differences between Online Business vs. Offline Business? Which one would be a better choice for you?

Let’s find out together!

Similarities – No Shortcuts

Some people think that online business is something like, ”Click, click, click, push enter and $10,000 will come to your bank account every month.”

The reality is that such “formula” just doesn’t work. Probably some people have such kind of image about online business because there are so many scams out there (Check 5 Incredible Tips to Avoid Online Scams).

In online and offline business you will need to work, work and work. There is no shortcut to success. You will need to get customers and (if you don’t luckily already have 10 million followers in social media) it will take some time to attract the customers. Then it’s really possible to make $10,000/month as these 5 guys.

You will need to do marketing and you need to have a good product to sell. One option also has to have a business by selling other people’s products.

In business, it’s always vital to think how to improve your service regardless your business happens in the offline and online world. At some point, you just need to start and take a leap of faith.

Differences – The Limits and the Freedom

Offline business happens in a physical world and online business happens on the internet. It means that both of them have certain advantages and disadvantages. The Internet makes a lot of things easier than in the physical world.

Still for example Massage, manicure or pedicure will hardly happen in the online world. But it doesn’t mean the internet would be useless in that kind of businesses. The proper use of the online world can dramatically boost any those offline businesses.

Or let’s imagine that you own the kindergarten. You can’t move it magically from the United States to Canada in one day. If you have the responsibilities there and you need to work in the kindergarten you can’t take a one-month trip to Asia.

On the other hand, if you have an online business promoting or selling children’s clothes you can do it in the United States, Canada, Asia, Africa or literally anywhere where you can find the Internet connection.

Online Business vs Offline Business

Online business can give you a lot of freedom

In the other words

Online business makes constant traveling anywhere you want possible.

But of course, it depends on a little bit what kind of online business you are doing. If you need a warehouse for your products it’s hard to take a whole warehouse with if you are traveling around.

But for example, affiliate marketing can be done without any kind of warehouse. Everything you need is the laptop and the Internet connection.

Risks – Financial Risks are Minimal in the Online Business!

Do you know how many times people fail on average before they quit? The average is less than one. Because most of the people don’t even start.

Probably those people are afraid of the risks. When we are talking about the business there is always some kind of risks.

But most of the time the financial risks are way smaller in the online world.

Most of the online businesses can be started with about $100 of money (or you can start for free in Wealthy Affiliate) but many times in the physical world you need to rent an office and buy a lot of stuff before the business hasn’t even started.

In the online business, you can start for free. Get a free domain and start affiliate marketing. The only risk is the loss of time. But the loss of time sounds very much smaller risk than using $3,000/month for the rent and the employee in your beauty salon.

Conclusion

There are advantages in both, online and offline business. But being online releases usually much higher potential with the lower risk.

Listen what the richest man in the world said,

If your business is not on the Internet, then your business will be out of business.” –Bill gates

Even if you would have an offline business, basic online skills can highly boost your profit.

I prefer the online business because of its flexibility, low risks, and huge potential.

Are you interested in creating an online business? My #1 recommendation to start is Wealthy Affiliate which is an online training center and community that teaches you hand by hand how to start and run an online business. I will also provide my 1-on-1 mentoring in Wealthy Affiliate for free.

“How to Get More Visitors to My Website?” – Start with This!

How to Get More Visitors to My Website

Get more visitors to your website!

Probably every online entrepreneur, blogger and affiliate marketer are asking themselves “How to get more visitors to my website?”

That is the crucial question because visitors are the key to earning online revenue and passive income.

Today I’m going to share what is the most important factor when you are attracting more visitors.

Content is king!

Content, content and content. The most uccessful online entrepreneurs talk over and over again about the importance of content. That is the key to success online.

The content of your website is your asset. When you have your own domain, you 100% own your content. But first a quick question.

“What is content?”

Content can be 700 words blog post, 3-minute video, appealing images, training tutorial, product review or anything between. (Extra tip, How to Make Your Content User-Friendly? 6 Tips for the Readable Text)

 

How to Get More Visitors to My Website

Create more content DAILY .

What Should be the Purpose of Your Content?

Some people think this way, “I want to earn money online. Okay, I’ll just put some fancy ads on my website. Then I do some social media marketing probably and the money will flow to my bank account.”

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The purpose of your content must always (ALWAYS) be adding value to people’s life. To fill some of their needs, help them, make their life better and so on.

For example, the purpose of my website YourOnlineRevenue.com is to help you to start earning money online. I provide tips and 1-on-1 mentoring for everyone who needs help on any subject related to earning money online.

The focus of your content must be helping people.

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” -Zig Ziglar

The Content is Your Most Valuable Asset

The highly successful online entrepreneur Jeff Bullas stated that the valuable content really attracts visitors to your page.

Once you have valuable content on your website, people are willing to share your pages with their friends, in the social media and they begin to trust you more.

As you have your own domain, the ownership of your website’s content is totally yours. When you add something to Facebook (or to other social medias) you always need to follow their regulations.

But in your own website you can do whatever you want. (And remember to provide value)

Think your website as building a house. Brick by brick it becomes more and more valuable. When you add more content to your website, the value of your asset rises.

It becomes more and more beautiful house (website). More and more people are willing to visit your house (website) and they are inviting their friends there also.

Solve Problems, Help People

Solving problems work.

How to Use Twitter for Affiliate Marketing? – And How Not to Use It.

How to Use Twitter for Affiliate Marketing

Twitter can boost your affiliate sales!

If you want to earn money online as an affiliate marketer, you may have asked yourself “How to Use Twitter for Affiliate Marketing?” Or in general, “How to use Twitter for social media marketing?

It’s a very relevant question and today you will get an answer!

First of all, I want to highlight why using Twitter can be beneficial for you.

  • More than 320 million people use Twitter
  • Every day 100 million users on Twitter are active
  • And only in the US there are more than 65 million Twitter users.

Twitter is a huge potential for you as an affiliate marketer. But you need to use it properly.

 Throwing the Links = Hitting the Air

Let’s say that you put your affiliate link on Twitter.

How probably will someone buy the product through that link?

Think about your Twitter feed. You see tens and hundreds of different tweets. In one of them is a link from a person that you don’t even know.

Okay, you still click the link because the text was intriguing. You end up with a page where you would need to buy something. Let’s say the link takes you straight to Amazon and shows you the product. Would you buy it? Quite probably not. One little link from someone who you doesn’t know to a random product. Doesn’t sound very effective.

Someone of many thousands could end up buying it but I can say that there is a more profitable way of using Twitter than throwing affiliate links here and there.

Build Trust

In order to succeed in any business, you need to build trust. The same applies to affiliate marketing.

There are many ways to build trust in the online world and on Twitter.

On Twitter, we usually trust more the people who have more followers (see Getting Twitter Followers Fast is Easier Than You Might Think! and How to Get More Twitter Followers Instantly? – 5 Ultimate Tips).

Would you trust more the guy who has 100 followers on Twitter or the guy who has 100,000 followers on Twitter? I would prefer the latter.

Another, probably one of the most efficient ways to build trust is to provide valuable content. We tend to trust more those people who have given us something.

We trust in people who are helping us.

Help people somehow. Give solutions to their problems. Usually, in one message of 140 characters, you can’t build the very deep connection with your audience. That’s one reason you need to be consistent in your tweets.

And Link Your Own Website!

140 characters may not be enough but as you link people to your website they can read, see and hear tons of your content. They can see who you are and what are you providing.

That builds trust.

Let’s take an example. Let’s say that you are promoting Tennis rackets. Instead of throwing one Amazon link to Twitter you can put a link to your review of that racket.

In your review, you provide 1 000 words of analysis about the racket, show pictures of it and maybe a video of you using the racket. Does it build a little more trust?

Build Relationships

One guy stops you in the street and says, “Buy this product, you will like it. It will make your life better.”

Your best friend shows you how a new product has helped him to have a better life. He explains how this product could help you also. Which one of the person’s would you trust more? Your best friend or the stranger in the street?

People like to listen to their friend’s advice. Our friend’s opinions’ have value. You can utilize this information in your affiliate marketing business. Build relationships with the people and they will trust you more.

Sincerely try to help them and provide them value. They become more interested in what you are providing and many times they are willing to help you back.

How to use Twitter for social media marketing

Build relationships. Connect with people and help them.

In the other words, send messages on Twitter, reply, retweet, link them to your website and so on.

Don’t Just Sell, Sell, Sell

Honestly, who likes the person who is always only selling some of his/her own products. Always the advertisements. Doesn’t sound very interesting.

Remember that you can use Twitter not only for selling.

  • Tweet motivational quotes and pictures (people tend to retweet them).
  • Retweet other people’s interesting tweets.
  • Take it easy and have fun.

This will also build trust because people don’t see you only as a guy who is always selling something. They see you as a normal person and hopefully as their friend.

Conclusion

1.Don’t only throw affiliate links

2.Build trust

3.Link your own website

4.Build relationships

5.Have fun
