What is Lyft






As you probably are already aware, ride sharing has evolved the way we get around. Companies like Uber have not only changed the way we commute, but they have also created a space to create jobs. In the midst of the the rideshare boom, we have seen the rise of a few other rideshare companies such as Lyft. Lyft is an American transportation company launched in June 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer. These rideshare companies often have promotions to try their services.

If you found this blog post chances are you are trying to find out how to make a profitable Amazon Affiliate website. Well I’m going to try to help you learn from my own experiences. My name is Dave, I run this personal finance blog where we discuss being profitable. I started this experiment because I’m always on a quest to generate different sources of passive income. My primary source of passive income is from the rental properties I own. You can read about them here, here and here. This is part 2 of what is probably going to end up being several posts long.

Just as a heads up at this point so far I don’t think I’ll be disclosing the specific niche of my website because while I’m sure most of you are nice people, it’s not uncommon for people to study these case studies and try to make a carbon copy of my website which can be bad for a number of reasons. Think I’m being paranoid? Just ask Spencer Haws of NichePursuits. He had an array of issues from being completely transparent with his readers. Spencer is a great teacher for this type of stuff and is highly recommended, but hes clearly nicer than I am haha.

This is part 2 of what is probably going to end up being several posts long. You can read part 1 of the amazon affiliate experiment here. I am creating blog updates once a month to show progress in real time.

So let just jump right into what’s been going on!

How much did I make so far?

I know this is probably what you really want to know so lets start with the numbers so far. Drum roll please……… So far my niche website has generated $30.80. But don’t take my word for it heres some proof.

how to make a profitable amazon affiliate website

Amazon Affiliate Payment Proof

I’m not sure if I was lucky or not but I got my first sale about 11 days in on this project. The item purchased was cheap and had nothing to do with my niche, but the feeling of logging in and seeing your first sale is indescribable.

Some things to note. I actually got 11 sales but only 4 of them have shipped out, so technically I earned over $30.80 but I won’t know the amount until they finished processing. If I had to guest based on the items, I’d say I’d be somewhere in the $50 range.

While $50 is very short of our $500 monthly goal, considering this is only the 1st month I feel confident enough to continue to work hard on this project.

What have I done since last month?

keyword research

I have done more keyword research for my niche. I have found around 5 long tail keywords that I am going to rank for.



Blog comments

I manually scoured the internet for relevant blog post that I could comment on to get backlinks to my site. An important thing to remember when trying to get backlinks this way is that 90% of the time when you leave a comment it will have to be manually approved by the website owner. This is obvious to me because I run this blog. You wouldn’t believe how many comments I get every day that are just spam. They say something to the effect of  “thanks this post was what I was looking for” with a link back to their crappy website. I ignore the hell out of these comments, I don’t want them on my blog so they never get approved. Website owners will usually only approve comments that are obvious that you read the post. I recommend picking something from the post that stood out to you and giving a real opinion. These comments are more likley to get approved thus leaving a link back to your site.

I was able to get about 15 of these approved out of 25 since last month.

Bought some social signals

I bought some social signals.

If you didn’t know, social signals are things like likes and shares, and yes you can buy them. To my understanding, the logic behind this is that google has become significantly more focused on finding “what the people want”, since google can see these signals, buying them makes it look like your website is being talked about and shared. This in turn, helps your ranking improve. I bought 300 social signals from PBNButler. While they were more expensive than Fiverr, where you can get social signals for $5, I find most gigs associated with SEO are absolute trash. What I like about PBNButlers service is that they have a deal  through a mobile app, which requires its users to share random post to continue the app. This means your shares are being distributed by real people, which also means that aside from the SEO aspect of it, you could legitimately attract real interested people.

Created some web 2.0’s

I’m going to be honest. If you are really trying to create a site with a long-term vision in mind, then the best way to get backlinks to your site is through outreach. This is essentially reaching out to other bloggers in your niche and doing guest post and building real relationships. That being said…it can be hard to find people willing to allow you to guest post for a niche site. It can work but it takes some work. For this website however, to help diversify my backlink profile, I created several web 2.0 websites to backlink to my own website. Web 2.0’s are free blogs you can start on websites like WordPress.com or Weebly. The idea here is to sign up to these free blogs and create post that link back to your site. But before you go starting a whole bunch of web 2.0’s and pointing them to your site, we want to make them look like legitimate blogs. create several

Don’t create several web 2.0’s and point to your site right away. You need to treat them as a real blog. Make sure you fill out the profile info, make an about page you don’t need to make it about you, create a persona, the details don’t have to be some intricate story line but the section needs to be there. It is also recommended you make several posts over the course of a week before linking to your site. Make sure that your other post include pictures or a video, proper use of title tags, and most importantly that they link out to other authority sites in the niche. DO NOT link to your competitors, this will boosts their rankings. A good example would be lets say your niche is soccer balls. I would try to find something about soccer on nike.com and link to that. I try to make sure all my post have 2-3 links to high authority pages so that when I link to mine, it will appear that my blog only links to reputable sources. I’m essentially creating and maintaining my own link neighborhood.

Try to make your post on the web 2.0’s decent quality, a lot of people outsource this but I’m cheap so I do this myself. I am still in the process of writing content to these web 2.0’s and its really time consuming. I have a few that are ready for links back to my site but I am waiting over a week before I do so.

Here is a list of web 2.0’s you can use

  • Tumblr
  • Weebly
  • WordPress.com
  • Blogger.com
  • Jimdo.com
  • Bravesites.com
  • Beep.com
  • Puzl.com
  • Webstarts.com
  • Yolasite.com
  • Snackwebsites.com
  • Site.Google.com
  • Joomla.com
  • Jigsy.com

Bought some expired Tumblrs

Pretty much the same info as above. Tumblr is a web 2.0 site, you can buy expired domains with an established backlink profile. This means you can get a domain with a high PA which will help send link juice and improve your sites ranking. This is where the MozBar comes in handy. I always check the stats on these before I confirm purchase. You dont want to buy any that are flagged as spam. Once I confirm these are acceptable, I repeat the process from above making sure that make a few post before linking to my site. I bought some of these from SEOClerks and Fiverr(not the cheap $5 ones). If you don’t want to pay for expired tumblrs you can always get your own by doing a little work. Here is a detailed guide to scraping Tumblrs.



How much have I spent?

When we left off last month, I spent $88 total creating a blog. That included the domain name and hosting. Since then I also purchased a logo for my website. Logos help to make sites look more legitimate, rather than just having a plain text title.

I sourced this out on Fiverr, the quality is ok, its no NBC logo, but it’s good enough. This only cost me $5.

I bought 6 expired Tumblrs. This cost me $36

I bought 300 Social signals. This cost me $14

This brings my total spent to $143 

I have made $30.80 up to this point so as of now I am $143  in the hole.

The plan for next month

Over the next month until our next update I plan to do the following:

  • Add more content to my site. I plan on trying to add one post every 2 weeks.
  • Complete the building of my web 2.0’s and link them to my website
  • Add 5 more blog comments.
  • Try to stop checking my earnings every day(BAD BAD NERVE WRECKING HABIT)

The Top 4 Mistakes Beginning Investors Make and How to Avoid Them

 

The following is a guest post by Hank Coleman, who is the owner and publisher of Money Q&A, a popular personal finance blog dedicated to helping its readers invest and save more for retirement.

 

Your first venture into the world of investing may be overwhelming. Investment experts seem to hawk different stocks, investment advice from books and blogs may seem contradictory depending on what you read, and the amount of data and charts out there is often just too much for a beginning investor to manage alone.

 

It’s okay to feel overwhelmed by the investment choices. Everyone started from square one at some point. However, getting started in investing isn’t as hard as you might think.

The Biggest Mistakes New Investors Can Make

 

To help you get the ball rolling, here are some novice mistakes to avoid while building your first investment portfolio:

Assuming You Need a Financial Adviser

 

All too often, people put off getting involved in investing beyond their employer-provided 401(k). They believe they need to have more money to afford a financial adviser to help them succeed in the stock market.

 

Maybe that was true a few decades ago. But, with the internet at your fingertips and the availability of robo advisors to help you invest your money, there’s no excuse for waiting to invest your money if it’s just sitting in a low-interest savings account.

 

Robo-advisors were designed to lower the barrier to getting involved in investing for everyday folks who want to see better returns on their money than what a traditional bank account can offer. With a robo-advisor, you don’t have to read a pile of investment guides before diving into the markets.

 

Investment companies build robo-advisors using extensive algorithms that determine the best possible allocations for customers’ money based on historical market trends and up-to-date market research. It also costs very little to use a robo-advising service compared to a traditional stockbroker. The fees usually range between 0.15-0.35% per month depending on your deposit amounts. And, some robo-advisors do not require a minimum balance to get started.



Getting Caught Up in the Hype

 

When you first start out as an investor, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the latest and greatest stocks that so-called investment experts proclaim are guaranteed good buys. Rather than funneling your money into the hottest tech stock or industry that people are raving about, stick to solid, time-tested strategies. Look for investments that diversify your portfolio and protect against large losses if something doesn’t live up to the hype.

 

Pulling Out of the Stock Market When It Goes South

 

There are many strategies for getting better returns on your investments. And, even if the market goes south for a bit, it’s important to remember that it will bounce back eventually.

 

Beginning investors are sometimes so risk-averse that they’d rather take the short-term losses by withdrawing from the market when it looks like things aren’t going well. They’d rather pull out their money than ride out the rocky waves and see their investments not only return to their original value but grow well beyond that amount.

 

If the Federal Reserve raises interest rates and the stock market dips or some global catastrophe strikes and the markets panic in the aftermath, don’t bail on your investments and squander your potential returns by fleeing to cash.

 

Look at your time horizon instead. When do you expect to need the money? Many will realize that they have decades before they need to use their investments. Staying in the stock market is usually the best strategy for investors. But, it takes a long-term mindset to see past the present panic.



Playing It Too Safe

 

If you’re relatively young (under 50 years old), then dumping all of your money into bonds may be overdoing it a bit. Bonds tend to be safer investment options than stocks and other volatile investment options, but they also offer significantly lower returns. Far too many young investors are risk adverse. They forget that they have decades to make up for any significant losses early in their careers.

 

Diversifying your portfolio is the most common and best advice for newer investors, and robo-advisors can help you decide the best allocation of your funds, based on your age and investment goals (i.e., retirement, saving for a down payment on a mortgage, your child’s college fund, etc.).

 

No Better Time to Get Started Than Today

 

Even if you have no background in investing or finance beyond creating a monthly budget, the plethora of valuable resources and no minimum, low-fee robo-advisors and index funds are making it easier than ever to invest like a pro.

 

It’s important to educate yourself and avoid novice pitfalls along the way as a beginner investor. You shouldn’t have to spend hours and hours reading investment advice and studying stock charts to be successful. You simply have to get started and stay in the market. Like the old saying…time in the market is more important than timing the market.
