Get Paid To Reviews – GPTReviews

I decided to cave in and share one of my niche sites with you. Since I already participate in a few GPT (Get Paid To) sites I decided that I might as well make a website about them.

Feel free to check out niche site number 2 entitled – www.GPTReviews.com

I would love your thoughts and opinions on it. Not too bad for being my second website ever.

I am pretty much done with my article marketing for this site. I may submit another article monthly or so to keep the links fresh to it so it can hopefully stay well search engine ranks.

I haven’t gotten much traffic to the site yet. I need to design a banner ad for it and maybe do a little bit of PPC advertising.

CashCrate Review Rant

Feeling frustrated today with the number of people who are stealing my cashcrate review word for word and putting it on their own blog or website as if they wrote it. Not only do I find this rude, but it also makes my content look like duplicate content, which is really upsetting.

I will be sending faxes to blogger and to google today with formal letters concerning the websites that have been stealing my cashcrate and fairy tale treasures review content. I don’t think I would be as upset if these people listened to me when I contacted them asking them politely to take it down or if they had included a link back to my site at least giving me credit for writing it.

Sorry for starting the post out with a rant. I am just getting really tired of seeing my work stolen without any credit. Someone even posted my CashCrate and Fairy Tale Treasures review on their site and giving everyone who visits permission to freely use and distribute the reviews. That was quite upsetting, how can this person give permission for others to use something that never belonged to them in the first place?

Anyone have any advice for me? I would truly appreciate it.

Niche Site Content and Squidoo Lenses

I have been on a roll today, completing 10 pages of website content for my 3rd niche site and also completing 3 new Squidoo lenses.

I also submitted a few articles to GoArticles.com. I cannot submit any more articles to EzineArticles until the approve my Platinum status or not, so I am waiting on that.

I noticed that my earnings from Get Paid To programs are considerably lower this month than they were at this time last month. I am not sure if this is because I took a week off when the baby was born or not.

I guess the only way to tell is by comparing it to what happens in August. Thank goodness I don’t have “all my eggs in one basket” and am doing both Get Paid To programs and Internet marketing together.

I really like the immediate earnings gratification that comes from sites like CashCrate, but realize that in order to gain a secure long term income I need to also concentrate on other areas. This is my reasoning for working so hard on my niche websites and Squidoo lenses.

I haven’t made too much from my internet marketing endeavours yet. I look at it as a small snowball that I am rolling along. Over time it will build momentum and get bigger and bigger until I can establish a nice full time income from it and pay off all my debt. I need to remember that slow and steady wins the race.

Writing lots of content

I have been writing content for my new niche site all day. I finished nine pages and am still working on my tenth page. This website is going to be a lot bigger than I had anticipated at the beginning. I am now estimating it will be around 30-35 pages or so.

I have been using a lot of products from the Joe Bucks affiliate program on this new site. It will be my first site using them as my advertisements, but I do have plans to make many more because I absolutely love the program.

Oh and I also bought a new domain name from 1and1. It is for my next project and I wanted to make sure I had the name reserved.

After spending all day writing I was referred to a new program by an acquaintance of mine. It is a membership site that costs $9.99 per month, but you can get unlimited high quality unique articles 550 words long written for you for $5.52 each. You also have full copyrights to the article as if you wrote it yourself.

So I joined the site and submitted requests for two articles for my new niche site. These are topics I was dreading writing on anyway so this saves me a lot of time and hassle.

Outsourcing my article writing will allow me to accomplish more in less time and build my online business so much faster. I am really looking forward to this. My articles should be ready in less than 24 hours. I will let you know how they turn out.

Gangster Greed is a get paid to program that offers a unique advantage that other get paid to programs lack. They let you cash out every single time you hit $10 in earnings.

Additionally, they have free offers only. There is no credit card required
for any offer on the Gangster Greed site. There are few, if any other sites with as many free offers as Gangster Greed.

The Gangster Greed theme is set mafia style. I really enjoy the fun atmosphere it produces.

Gangster Greed Referral Program

Gangster Greed also has a great referral program. Not quite a good as CashCrate’s referral program, but it is the second best in the GPT industry.

Content Speed Writing

I wanted to post about an ebook that has really helped me. This ebook is also known as Article Speed Writing and it is written by Andrew Hansen.

Instead of paying the $37 that he charges for Article Speed Writing I am able to offer you essentially the same article writing formula by donation.

I have been able to write many more articles much more quickly using the Content Speed Writing method and I must say it is worth its weight in gold.

I can easily write articles in less than 20 minutes now.

I know that this will substantially help you to write more articles for Associated Content, Helium or any other website you write for.

Squidoo By Donation

I found some great resources on making money from Squidoo. I got resale rights to it and set it up so that you can check it out and purchase strictly by donation.

I know that some people reading my blog may be in a similar financial situation as me and that is why I am not asking any set price. I do plan to use the proceeds to help pay off my debt.

I have learned quite a bit from reading through the Squidoo Profits guides today and it got me really excited about Squidoo again. I still have more to read, but I may make my next project after this niche site I am working on be a Squidoo project. In fact, I already reserved the lens name I want to use. I was able to find a really good niche to use by reading this guide today.

Other than Squidoo, I did more work on my second niche website. I need to concentrate and finish this project before I move on to my next. It will do me no good to have a bunch of half finished projects. I hope that many of you will get some great results out of the Squidoo Profits program, I know I plan to.

I wrote and submitted an article for my second niche site. I am trying to get all my article marketing done for it in the next few days so I can move on to some Squidoo projects.

Easy Blog Traffic

I just wanted to start off right away and tell you that I am not asking for any set price for this program. That is right, you choose how much you would like to pay for it.

As you may already know, am trying really hard to get out of debt. So I am going to let anyone name their own price as a donation to help me pay it off. In exchange you will get this program about how to bring in massive traffic to your blog.

The person who originally wrote this course has provided me with resell rights so that I can offer this fantastic course to my blog visitors. I really hope this may help me put a little dent in my debt.

Here is what he has to say about the course-

RE: The Cure for Lack of Blog Traffic

Dear Frustrated Blogger,

We’re at the brink of the worst epidemic in Internet marketing history. This disease is dangerous and infectious.

But it’s not a disease that affects your body…

It affects your mind.

This disease, which starts from severe depression due to the lack of blog traffic, has already claimed the willpower and spirits or thousands of would-be millionaires.

If you’re already suffering from PBT, I strongly recommend that you fight this disease now with everything you have, before it completely kills off your blog, and your motivation for success.

But first let me tell you about me, and why I’m recommending this cure to you…

You see, a few months back I was an absolute newbie in the blogging world. In fact, I was afraid of the word “blog”.

To me it just seems like a whole lot of baloney mixed with a toxic dose of jargon that just was not worth my time…

When I finally decided to take the plunge and give this “blogging thing” a try, I began to feel nauseous, overwhelmed by the amount of new things I had to learn from scratch.

I started to get emotionally stressed out.

My blog traffic was pathetic, and I had no idea how to change the way things were at that time…

For no apparent reason, I started checking my blog stats to see if I had more visitors than yesterday. I did this like a mad man, and till this day I cant really explain why I behaved like I did..

Why was I doing the same things over and over again, expecting different results?

I don’t know…

I started to get bitter and angry when I saw other people boasting about how much money they’re making. I HATED to see all those big commission checks people were posting on their blogs…

Soon, I realized that I was suffering from PBT or Pathetic Blog Traffic.

I know a lot of people like you face the same thing every day. You want to make more money and you know that the key to that is to start getting more traffic to your blog.

But the question is “HOW?”
When you discover some of the secrets I reveal in Easy Blog Traffic, you’ll see how I managed to get one of my blogs from NOWHERE to an Alexa ranking of 4,000+ (highest) and maintain an average Alexa ranking of 12,000+

This is not a simple thing to do!

When I discovered some of the closely-guarded secrets of generating tons of unique, interested visitors to my blogs, it was only a matter of time before I started making some serious money.

This is just ONE of the many sources of income from my blogs. I dont’ really feel the need to show everything…

I just want you to know what I’m talking about. And I want you to trust me..

Start Getting Tons of Eager Buyers and Loyal Customers To Your Own Blog

Maxed Out Movie Review

I just watched the movie Maxed Out. I must say that it has really motivated me to work even harder to get myself out of debt.

I found myself crying during the movie. I feel so bad for the way the credit card companies treat people. I also feel the pain that comes with being so far in debt that you don’t know how to get out.

So many people find themselves not able to make the minimum payments, which hikes up their interest rate, which makes it even harder to make the payments. Then of course the credit card companies tack on those over the limit and late fees on top of that.

It is so sad how being in trouble with debt can consume an entire person’s life. You may have the fear that the bank might foreclose on your home or that your car might get repossessed. You might avoid answering the telephone wondering if it is the collection company again.

There were actually stories of people who have lost loved ones to suicide over debt issues. Learning what the credit card companies really think of us makes me feel angry.

I want to help myself and hopefully help others find the path to debt freedom so these scumbag companies can be out of our lives for good.

I highly recommend everyone watch the Maxed Out movie. It will seriously change your entire outlook on debt.

The Power of Time-Management

Only having 24 hours in a day makes it very difficult to accomplish everything we want to do with our time. For example, I have to balance my time being a mother and a wife along with trying to build an online income.

Without balance we may find ourselves wasting time on unimportant things and not being as productive as we could be. Time management takes a lot of focus to work properly.

According to the Pareto Principle, only 20% of what you do per day really matters. This is why it is important to understand what is important and what isn’t.

Having a set plan for the day allows me to wake up and get straight to work on what needs to be accomplished. I can set a prioritized to-do list so I can make sure nothing gets left out.

Time management is more than just a simple to do list. It is also a great way to track your goals and break them down into smaller daily steps in order to make sure they are accomplished.

For example, in my FranklinCovey day planner I keep track of my daily earnings from each program I am involved in. This helps me to see where I am doing well and what areas need improvement.

I also keep a daily list of all the articles I have written and where I have submitted them. There is also a place for me to keep notes on anything special I have discovered that day that I want to remember for later.

I have a special section in my day planner where I listed all my goals and broke them down into smaller deadlines. My major goal of course is my goal to pay off $72,900 worth of debt by the end of April 2009.

I really enjoy the Values and Mission section that FranklinCovey has in their day planners. From their instructions I was able to formulate my own mission statement, which keeps me focused.

Due to the fact that I am working online, I am a member of a bunch of different online programs and websites. I always had a hard time remembering what my user id and password was for each one.

Thankfully there is a section in my day planner designed for me to write down each website along with my log-in information.

I also have numbered sections in my day planner, which I was able to decide for myself what they would be used for. One of them I use to write down notes from really important things I have learned about working online.

The other sections I am still a bit undecided on, but I am really glad they are there when I need them.

To be effective, everything you do needs to be well organized. It is not necessary to stay busy all day long, you just need to make sure you get results from the time you put in.

Also, it is important to make sure that you aren’t just focusing on one area of your life and ignoring the others.

Schedule time for yourself to relax and to be with your family. There is no point in having a business if you don’t have a life to go with it.

Keeping a to-do list helps keep procrastination away. I had a huge problem with this in the past. I would always want to put everything off until tomorrow.

Now that I write down what I need to do each day, I no longer have that option.

Keep your day planner accessible at all times. I keep mine right here next to me on my desk open to the page for the day. That way it is always visible to me what I need to do next.

Make sure to stay positive. Working on time management is not the easiest thing to do.

You will find over time that you will start to love time management and realize that you can do more with your day than you ever though possible.
