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.

Learning a Foreign Language

Published by admin on 24 Aug 2011

This week I was asked by a young friend of mine how to learn English. Instead of giving him advice straight away, I asked him back how serious he is about learning a foreign language and, more importantly, what he is going to do with it. Learning a foreign language is one of those activities that require persistent effort over the course of several years. If you motivation is weak or your lack commitment than you will be wasting your time. There is no use taking 6 months language course if you are not sure if you are going to continue to learn it after that. If you are going to stick with it than here’s a few things you need to know about learning a new language.

The Creation of Value

Published by admin on 19 Aug 2011

This article goes in continuation of a series of posts written about the Meaning of Value started earlier. In this world everything that is not created by nature is created by human, meaning things surrounding us were made as such to add value to our lives. The houses we live in, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear, all these things are the products of someone’s thoughts. People who created them saw the opportunity and acted upon it to deliver the things people require. You too can produce value and sell it for profit.
