Extroverts And Introverts

Published by admin on 28 Sep 2011

Ever since I became aware of different psychological personality types I started exploring the differences in people’s characters and trying to understand how they relate to each other. Learning that all people can be divided into two big groups, extroverts and introverts, before they get divided into smaller ones, helped a lot in the task. The first time I heard about extroversion and introversion back at school on the lesson on Psychology, but only recently it rang a bell on how useful it is to know who people around you and, more importantly, yourself are (I posted a link to the personality test which you can take to find out your type here).

How To Get Traffic

Published by admin on 23 Sep 2011

In my previous post I mentioned that the amount of sales you get depends on the traffic quality. I also said that the best quality traffic comes from search engines. However, getting your site ranked in search engines requires the most effort. Below I will list several other sources of traffic that are much easier to master: articles, directories and link exchanges. Besides, having links to your site from these mediums gives your site votes that in turn help you rank better in search engines which results in higher traffic.

What Is Traffic Quality

Published by admin on 18 Sep 2011

In my post on Making Money Online I mention that you need two things to earn money an affiliate marketer which are product and traffic. In this article I am going to elaborate on traffic and its quality. Traffic is a flow of visitors that get to your website by following a link from another resource or typing in your website url directly into their browser. Each of them is a potential buyer. The quality of traffic is defined by how much each visitor is interested in your offering. It is measured by conversion ratio, a relationship between the number of visitors that come to your site and the amount of sales they generate. The quality generally depends on the source of the traffic, with Search Engines being considered to be the best one of them.

Passive Income Explained

Published by admin on 13 Sep 2011

There are two ways of making money: actively and passively. With the first active way of making money you get paid as you work, which means you trade your own time in exchange for money. The whole employer - employee system where people get paid per hour is designed like that. The downside of the system for the employee is that you are inevitably hit a certain level of income for one simple reason - every one of us has a limited number of hours in a day. The opposite - passive income suggests that you keep making money even while you rest. This is the way of income I am going to talk in this article.

Why Divorce Rate Is 60%

Published by admin on 08 Sep 2011

This question puzzled me for more than a decade ever since I met my first long-term girlfriend in high-school. We started dating in the last year of studying, right before graduation. Later, when I was on my 3rd year of University, she started pushing me towards marriage. We were both 20-21 at that time which is the normal age to get married in Russia (for the 1st time, as I later found it out), especially for girls. I wasn’t ready for that. Firstly, I was cautious because I didn’t know why people divorce so often to avoid that making the same mistake. Secondly, I had my dream of moving to Australia, which seemed easier to do when you are single. And, lastly, the feelings have gone too. We broke up soon after.

Puff Diddy And Value Creation

Published by admin on 03 Sep 2011

American entrepreneur Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs illustrates the principle of successful usage of the concept of Adding Value described earlier like no one else. He created the momentum by making his name a brand and then endorsing his various business ventures with it. Under Sean Combs Enterprise umbrella you will find a record label, a clothing line, a fragrance, a couple of restaurants and so on. Once you have the value you can attach it to pretty much anything and people will buy into it just because it is associated with something familiar.
