Yes, the annual B2B networking and marketing event will be held tomorrow, October 25, 2015 10am-9pm at One Esplanade, Pasay City — just make sure that you’ve already signed up for the event on¬†Blogapalooza 2015’s website¬†(You’ll get an awesome badge to post on your website, by the way).

But wait — it’s not just about attending the said event! You need to know how to market your blog to potential clients and/or advertisers in order to make your attendance rewarding. Aside from marketing your blog, you also need to interact and get to know your fellow bloggers. Why? Well, they can help you with your blogging career¬†way more than you think!

How to Market Your Blog to Potential Clients/Advertisers

If you thought that only businesses should market themselves on¬†Blogapalooza 2015, you are completely wrong. Attracting businesses to your blog¬†is not just about handing out your business card to them (though it’s part of the process). You need to learn how to differentiate your blog from¬†all the other blogs¬†in the event. Still confused? Let me explain this further:

Imagine.¬†Hundreds of bloggers, nearing a thousand, walking around. Do you think that they went there just to have fun? No. Each of them has at least a hundred business cards at hand — most looking better than yours. They also handout a business card to every business they see. Truth be told, this event is actually similar to the hunger games — where¬†only the strong are rewarded.

In order to keep up with, or beat, the competition, you need to learn basic marketing skills. Trust me, businesses almost always choose an option that presents itself as the best among the rest — even though it’s nothing close to the best! Below are some useful tips in marketing your blog at the Blogapalooza 2015 event tomorrow:

 

1. Bring as many business cards as you can

If you previously planned not to bring any business cards at all, change that plan immediately! This is your most powerful tool in marketing your blog — do not ignore this small piece of paper. Also, no matter how much businesses may like your blog, it would mean nothing if they couldn’t even contact you. A business card solves this and even gives you an edge over other bloggers that didn’t even bring a single business card. Lastly, a business card shows how professional, and a serious blogger, you are.

 

2. Design your business card to be unique as possible

Plain design templates with your logo, name, and contact details don’t stand out as much as loud and one-of-a-kind business cards. Do you know that you can customize your business card to any size you like? Yes, business cards come in different and unique designs — all with the purpose of standing out from the crowd! Design says a lot about your branding, every marketer knows this.

 

3. Dress well and look professional

You would not want to show up looking like traffic hit you very hard. First impressions are important and, most of the time, first impressions don’t change within a single day. This is why you MUST look your best at the Blogapalooza 2015; wear professional and stylish clothes to the event. Treat this as an interview, don’t let your potential clients/advertisers catch you at your worst!

 

4. Memorize your website statistics by heart

You would never know when you’ll need this information. In the event a potential client/advertiser asks you for your website statistics, it would look more professional to discuss them with confidence — without going to your website on your smartphone before giving an answer. Remember, businesses want people, or bloggers, that are serious with what they do. Why would a business hire someone who treats his or her blog merely as a pastime?

 

5. Know what you can offer to advertisers/clients

Blogapalooza 2015, Responsible media

Businesses want concrete results or nearly accurate estimates. When asked, you should know how much (in percent) you could increase a business’ online conversion rates, website traffic, social media engagement, impressions, etc. — after all, the goal of businesses would be sales conversion, brand awareness, and/or brand recall. If you didn’t understand any of the terms, don’t hesitate to use the ever-reliable Google!

 

6. Always smile

A smile almost always makes a good impression. Smile as natural as possible while interacting to fellow bloggers, potential clients, and potential advertisers. No one wants to work with someone who doesn’t smile — a reason why friendly people always become the center of attention. Also, continue to look active and take pictures. Show businesses that you will be blogging the event on your amazing blog, this would show how serious of a blogger you are.

 

Have a great day tomorrow!

I hope these tips will help you promote your blog to potential clients/advertisers tomorrow! Just have fun and enjoy the event, everything would go well. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #Blogapalooza and #ResponsibleMedia for all your social media posts. Maximize your reach and let businesses easily see your blog!

Ready for Blogapalooza 2015? Share this post to your fellow bloggers that’ll attend the annual Blogapalooza 2015! Let’s all have a great time tomorrow while also improving our career as a blogger!

Some Of The Most Unethical But Effective Life Hacks From Reddit

Reddit is the largest online community where millions of people all over the world talk about any and every topic. We at Life and Money Hacks were able to find these hilariously effective life hacks. But be wary because each of them may be considered unethical, so we don’t actually recommend that you try these out. This¬†would be a good read though and each will help you a thing or two¬†about the real world.

Screen Shot 2015-09-12 at 11.08.55 PM

1. Calling in sick to work

by Jay180 on Reddit

If you want to sound sick when calling in to your work, lie on your back while hanging your head over the edge of the bed. You will sound congested.

 

2. Easy hotel reservations

by JonnyMansport on Reddit

Always book your hotel room with the prefix of Doctor. When the morning crew pre-assigns rooms for that day’s arrivals, they are likely to put you in a nicer room to avoid an unhappy pretentious Doctor bitching about being next to the elevator. Also, if you call a hotel and they are booked for the weekend. Just call back later and book your arrival day on Thursday with a departure day of Tuesday.

Hotel reservation systems are designed to turn away two night stays in favor of 3, 4 or 5 night stays. So just call the hotel back later and make the adjustment to your current reservation for just the days that you want. Make your arrangements directly with the hotel when possible to avoid any robotic responses from a central reservations department. I’m a¬†Former General Manager btw.

 

3. Eliminating competition to land a job

by Scamp3D0g on Reddit

Last time I was looking for a job, I posted a fake add for a very similar position on Craigslist so I could check out the resumes of my competition.

 

4. Make your partner come back to you after every break up

by Beryllium Nitrogen on Reddit

Find a partner (hard I know) who is a heavy sleeper. Each night after they go to sleep, slap a nicotine patch on them. Take it off before they wake up. They will become addicted to nicotine and should they break up with you go through massive withdrawals. If everything has gone to plan they they will associate this shitty feeling with their new found freedom and come back to you.

 

5. Using the right uniform to do anything you want

by ElectroKitten on Reddit

There’s clothing that allows you to do virtually everything. Want to do graffiti? Wear one of those white paperish overalls. Steal a streetsign? Carry a toolbox, dress like a mechanic and you’re good to go. Dress up like a technician, walk into an office, tell somebody you were “told to take that PC”, you can just walk out with it. Never underestimate how little people question the uniform.

 

6. Meeting with someone at your own convenience

by postfuturology on Reddit

When meeting someone, tell them you are twice as far away from them as you actually are, and are willing to meet halfway, I.e. a block away from where you currently are.

 

7. Pass all your college courses with little effort

by peppermintpatti on Reddit

This trick has helped me pass a good majority of my college courses. Send out a mass email to the class the day before an exam saying I have just finished my study guide, and offer to swap it with other people. Never actually made a study guide. People would send me theirs and I would them send them each others back. Win win for everyone.

 

8. Caught looking at someone? Use this old FBI technique

by They_Werent_Flares on Reddit

The first trick I learned in the FBI: If you’re on a stakeout and you want someone to stop looking at you or think you’re not looking at them – pick your nose. They immediately turn away and think you’re just some jerk picking his nose.

 

9. Have a paper due the next day but haven’t started yet? No problem.

by MrBigBadBean on Reddit

This has worked wonders for me in college. If you have a paper due but haven’t started or need a few more days (sometimes weeks) past the deadline, change the extension on a small file like a .jpeg to .docx and email it to your professor. When the lazy fuck finally decides he or she feels like grading papers, they will try to open it in Word only to get a message about a corrupt file. You’ll have your paper done by the time you get the email about it and can just resend it and still get full points.

 

10. Get expensive stuff at a cheap price on Craigslist

by snappy033 on Reddit

Search Craigslist for divorce, wife, husband, new baby, etc. to find people trying to offload expensive stuff for cheap

The Ultimate Guide to Freelance Writing and Earning at least P30,000 a Month

Freelance writing can easily be done by anyone who speaks and writes well in English. Though someone¬†who loves reading books and writing would be an advantage, it’s not required to earn good money. Freelance writing is one of the 10 ways to earn money on the internet, make sure to check out the other ways too! I’d like to make it clear that freelance writing is for everyone.¬†Whether you’re a student, professional, businessman, or unemployed, you can earn big money in¬†freelance writing.

In this article, we’ll teach you how you can earn at least¬†P30,000 a month in¬†freelance writing. But don’t expect any magic to happen because, like all professions, you’d need to build your portfolio first in order to reach a P30,000 (or more)¬†monthly¬†income. Part-time or full-time, this article will definitely help you. So, let’s start learning how to earn loads of money in the comfort of your own home (or in a coffee shop).

Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 11.28.58 PM
What you’ll need

In freelance writing, you’ll need the following:

  1. Laptop/Computer
  2. Stable Internet Connection
  3. Bank Account/Debit Card (you’ll be connecting this to PayPal or other payment methods)
  4. Good English Grammar
  5. Free Time
  6. The Will To Learn

The last requirement is very important. You’ll need to learn a lot about writing and use these to develop your writing skills over time. Remember, you’ll be starting as a newbie¬†in freelance writing and, no matter what you currently know, you still have more to learn.

Where to look for freelance writing jobs

There are many websites where you can get freelance writing jobs but, as a newbie, you’re better off to start at websites like Upwork.

Here are some websites where you can look for freelance writing jobs:

It’s way easier to use websites such as Upwork and Freelancer since they already have a healthy base of people looking for freelancers. The only problem is competition, so you would need to shape up your about me, resume and cover letter in order to stand out from the crowd.¬†

But in other websites, you would have to approach your clients and you’ll need to send them an article pitch.¬†An article pitch is like a test article related to the topic they’re interested in, if clients like your article pitch then expect to be hired. In LinkedIn, however, you’ll find many companies looking for full-time and part-time writing positions.

Check out our own ultimate guide about making money on Fiverr. We’re sure you’ll learn a lot from our previous post.

Building your client base

In order to get a steady flow of jobs (and income), you’ll need a large client base. This is hard to build since it would definitely take time and effort. So expect to send a dozen emails a day to potential clients and keep doing this until you have loads of work from your different long-term clients. This is probably one of the hardest parts of being a freelancer but don’t worry, you’ll get rewarded greatly.

If you want to standout from the crowd, you’ll need to convince your client that you’re the best pick. Yes! Sales talk is necessary. You really need to sell yourself in order to get freelance writing jobs but it’s not actually that hard. There are many tutorials in the internet on how to sell yourself via your resume, cover letter, profile, portfolio, etc. You can learn a lot from this blog post on how to get your first freelance writing job.

Negotiate with your client

As a freelance writer, clients would often ask your rates. Make sure that you know what to charge each client since some clients would find it unprofessional if you didn’t. Basically, a newbie freelance writer may work for a low rate. Be careful though because a very low rate would cause clients to belittle you.

Here are some tips on how to negotiate with your client:

  1. Show your latest (and best) writing samples.
  2. Communicate professionally
  3. Don’t make too much promises
  4. Always be punctual, even on online meetings
  5. Tell your client your experiences in writing before negotiating
  6. Always start with a reasonably high price, clients would usually negotiate it lower
  7. Know your worth
  8. Research what your client wants, and become what your client wants

If you’re still confused on what to charge your clients, you can learn more in this How To Set Your Freelance Writing Rates blog post.

Working on articles daily

You’d not be a freelance writer if you don’t write articles daily. This is your main source of income and at times your workload would get really heavy. One great benefit of being a freelance writer is that working for just 4 hours a day would still get you a nice income.

So, working for 8 or more hours a day would make you earn at least double every month. But this is very tiring and you’ll need to constantly recharge your creative juices. If you find it hard concentrating and being productive, you might want to read about Entrepreneur’s 9¬†Practices at Home and Work That Increase Productivity.
Keep working everyday and you’ll be surprised on how fast your paychecks grow each month. The problem is that you get only projects with short-term clients, you’ll need to look for more clients willing to work with you on a long-term basis. Analyze your monthly income and see how much your freelance writing career develops over time.

Payment methods

Clients pay may either pay you after each submission or at a weekly, bi-monthly or monthly basis. This all depends on your agreement with your client beforehand. There are many payment methods and most clients would ask how you would prefer to be paid. Each has its own pros and cons, so we recommend that you check out each payment method. Note that some clients would pay instantly but other big time clients may take days or weeks to release your payment.

Standard payment methods are the following:

  1. PayPal
  2. Bank Deposits
  3. Skrill
  4. Payoneer
  5. Bitcoin

Though most clients prefer PayPal and bank deposits, you can also request another payment method. There’s nothing wrong with requesting since clients would understand your situation.

You’re one step closer to your dreams

Being a freelance writer is definitely rewarding. You get to choose what time you’ll work, you have no strict bosses, you can attend important events in your life and so much¬†more. You make your own income happen and there’s absolutely no limit.

We hope that this ultimate guide has helped you start your career as a freelance writer. If you have any questions and thoughts, don’t hesitate to share them in the comments section below. We’ll do our best to help you and answer your questions. Also, share this post to your friends on Facebook and you might even help improve someone else’s life.

5 Mistakes That Keep You Away From Your First Million

More and more people are becoming millionaires all over the world. Years ago, it was almost impossible for people to earn their first million but we learn a lot from previous mistakes that prevent us from being abundant. Entrepreneurship has enabled many to change their lives economically and financially.

But are you still trapped in the rat race? No matter how hard you work, you may never get rich. Well, not with the wrong mindset anyway. There are basically 5 mistakes that keep you away from your first million.¬†It’s never too late to change, change can be very rewarding but you must avoid these mistakes:

 

1. Being too much of a perfectionist

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 10.45.24 PM

Perfection does have its perks, you’d get the most out of one aspect. The only downside is that focusing more on the perfection of one or a few would hinder you from improving other aspects. Always remember to try different things, experiment. Most of the time you may get nothing but there will be times that you’d hit the jackpot. Being too much of a perfectionist would prevent you from being open-minded and seeing the¬†many opportunities in the world.

No matter how crazy your ideas are, don’t let others pull you down if they think it’s too “ambitious.” Give it a shot, you may lose nothing or only little but the reward is far more greater than anything you sacrificed.

 

 

2. Listening to toxic people

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 10.50.38 PM

Never believe in what other people say, especially when they’re toxic people. Toxic people, you see, would try to bring you down as you climb up the ladder of success. Most people envy that you’re destined for greatness and they’re not. You may not be aware but many toxic people are your own family and friends. It’s important to stick with people that would support and encourage you and avoid those that try to put you down and tell that your idea sucks.

Life is full of poisonous people and only the strong can avoid them. Only the strong can become millionaires. So ask yourself, are you one of the strong?

3. Self-doubt

Self-Doubt

There are people in this world that are very intelligent, gifted and destined for success. The problem is that, because of many harsh experiences in life, most of these people doubt themselves. “Am I good enough?”, this question should never pop in your mind. All you have to do is believe in yourself, attract positivity, and eventually you’d realize that you’re actually worth a whole lot more than you used to think.

Remember, power comes from those who believe they possess it. Power is merely an illusion and believing that you’re weak and unworthy would not reward you with success. Some of the world’s most successful people are even college dropouts, did you know that? Find inspiration from the genius minds that became wealthy college dropouts.

 

 

4. Trading time for money

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 11.01.47 PM

Why do millionaires become millionaires? Simple answer. They eventually realized that trading time for money will not get you rich. Your time is valuable since it is very limited. You only get 24 hours in a single day and you’d only work for 8-10 hours a day. Obviously, this sets a limit to your potential income and,¬†in order to¬†become financially free and wealthy, you must break free from the strangles of time. Sure, this may be a good first step to earning money since employment can be very rewarding at first but do not get stuck at this point.

Business is one of the greatest ways to hack your time and generate wealth way beyond your previous limit. You can achieve your first million just by trying to release your income capabilities from the bounds of time. Business and investing is a leverage, learn the pros and cons of entrepreneurship and employment.

 

5. Giving up instead of learning

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 11.06.55 PM

Becoming a millionaire isn’t an easy path, their are many humps and bandits along the way. Don’t let any obstacle stop you because this obstacle will definitely come back more than once in your life. You must learn from all the hardships you face. Don’t give up and stop right where you are. A millionare becomes wealthy because he learns from his mistakes. The next time you encounter the same obstacle again, you’d be more prepared to face it.

One of the most wealthiest people in the world never gave up. Did you know that Bill Gates even dropped out of college? Bill Gates definitely faced many struggles in his life but look at him now. Learn a lot of lessons from the life story of Bill Gates.

If you truly want to be a millionare one day, avoiding these mistakes should be your first step. These mistakes block your path to success and you must avoid them. No one said that success is easy, in fact success is very hard and most people fail to achieve this. But with a mentality of a millionaire you can become a millionaire yourself! What do you think of this mentality? Will you be able to use the lessons in your article in your life?

Things We Can Learn From Genius College Dropouts

We all know that education is an integral part of our lives. While getting a degree is one way to be successful, top-notch entrepreneurs prove otherwise. A college degree isn’t always something that’ll help you climb up the corporate ladder. Some of the very successful people in the world are actually college dropouts and some, like Walt Disney, never even entered college.

galleryfirstslide

Here are a few things we can learn from these people:

Believe in yourself

The three people we all expect to see on this list are Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. These people were very passionate about their business opportunities to the point that they dropped out of college. Mark Zuckerberg dropped out so that he could expand this social website beyond a few universities. They all were very hardworking and turned their creative and innovative ideas into a huge wave of the technology industry. What we learn from their example is to have faith, believe in your own ideas and to make them happen. It’s sometimes rewarding to take risks.

 

Persevere

Ellen Degeneres, a comedian loved by nearly everyone, is a college dropout too. After realizing that she was not happy at school, she dropped out of college after only one semester. Later on, she worked for years in restaurants and other customer service positions, all the while pursuing low-paying stand up nights at clubs and coffee shops. She got her big break in 1986 when she was featured on the Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Later on, she found many opportunities in film and television. Her example teaches us that hard work and faith can really lead you to success.

 

You are more than your grades

People hardly know that the writing genius and author of The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald, was a college dropout too. This great writer left his education due to failing grades. After being put on probation at Princeton in 1917, because he was too busy getting good positions in all extracurricular writing activities, he dropped out of college and was broke until he completed his first novel that was published in 1920. The man’s success is proof that you’re worth way more than your grades and that school performance doesn’t define you.

 

Do it yourself

Not many people know that the high-end fashion designer, Ralph Lauren, was a college dropout. The designer originally studied business for two years. He eventually became a necktie seller after dropping out. Inspired by European tie designs, he came up with his own which was rejected by his firm so he started his own tie company in New York. He achieved success and expanded his business to clothing design. Ralph Lauren is another name that tells us that getting the job done yourself is so much better than people doing it for you.

 

You don’t have to fit in

Another celebrity that wasn’t held back by his lack of college degree was John Lennon. John loved music more than anything and kept failing all his high school examinations. Later on after getting enrolled in an art school, he was expelled for distracting behavior. After that he started touring with his band performing at various places. The band was renamed as The Beatles. Who hasn’t heard and loved the Beatles? This just proves that you don’t have to be perfect to aim high. A college degree isn’t more important than having passion and hard work.
