microsoft-windows-technical-support-scams

What are Microsoft Windows Technical Support Scams??

Scammers call up random customers throughout the world and tell them that they are calling from Microsoft and that they have received warning messages from their computers. The scammers will claim that the computers of the person they have called is filled with Malware, viruses, and Spyware making them susceptible to hackers and other dubious characters. They will say that Microsoft has got these reports directly from your computer and they will remove all these for a specific fee.

They will use each and every scare techniques they can find to ensure that you install a computer sharing application like TeamViewer and then give them control over your computer. Then they will force you o make payments for fake services and problems.

Billions of dollars have been duped and looted by these scammers in the last 10 years by using these scare techniques. It has been going on for quite some time now, but unfortunately, more and more people are still getting scammed throughout the world every day by these scammers.

Whatever you do when you receive these Microsoft Windows Technical Support scam calls, do not encourage them. You should never give these unknown people control over your computer.

PaysForever Review: Do Not Buy Before You Read This

PaysForever is a Multi Level marketing (MLM) program which promises to pay you instantly once the sale is made, thereby removing the risk of not getting paid. But is the product worth the fee they charge or is it another scam?? Read the PaysForever review to find out.

Product Name – PaysForever
Website – www.paysforever.com
Price- $39
Owners- Charles and Susan Truett
My rating:- 2.5/10

 

paysforever-review

 

What Works??

  1. PaysForever has a simple concept, which is easy to understand and implement.
  2. Immediate commission payment for every affiliate sale. No need to wait for a minimum payment amount, get paid immediately for sales made.
  3. The package includes a website for promoting PaysForever.
  4. Might give you some quick money if you have a strong personal network.

What does not work??

  1. A typical Pyramid scheme which does not offer any product but just focusses on downline building.
  2. No long term products to sell. The free products included are backdated. (Other than the website).
  3. The first sale goes to your sponsor.
  4. Difficult to promote. You might have to be dependent on only your close network.

Analysis of PayForever

The concept of PaysForever is pretty simple. You become a member by paying $39, and then you get an affiliate website which you can use to promote the program. Of the $39, $20 will immediately go to your sponsor, and hence their claim of immediate payment and the rest will be kept by the owners as administrative expenses. Now once people start joining your network, they pay the same $39 fee. You will not get paid for the first person who joins you. That $20 will go to your sponsor. You start getting paid from the 2nd person who joins you. Similarly, you get paid for the first person who joins your downline’s network.

paysforever-program

This means, along with the sales made directly by you (other than your first sale), you also get residual income from your downline’s first sales. Although this seems like a good scheme, you are basically dependent on your downline’s sincerity for your residual income.

Also, what makes it difficult is the fact that there are actually no proper products to promote. One good thing about this program is that they actually accept this and mention this. The sales page does not bullshit you into believing that you are getting superb value for money stuff, and makes it clear that the primary goal is network building. This I found as pretty impressive, and thus I have not marked this product as a Scam.

But unfortunately, this also makes it a difficult scheme to sell and also a short term one. The products which they are giving free are pretty outdated and generally come with a negative review. So you will not be able to use them as a promotional tool and will have to only depend on people who are looking to build an MLM network.

paysforever-products

The above picture shows the free products given with the program, and you would realize that these would hardly be used as hooks to get more members to join your network. So thus you are actually left with only the network marketing part and thus you would evidently run around your existing network trying to push this product. This might be a good one time sale for quick money if you are looking at short term income and if you already have a strong network. But this would be an uphill task if you are building your network from scratch.

In a Nutshell

PaysForever might act as an add-on sales product for experienced marketers, but it is not at all a product to build a long term business. Thus beginners should stay away from this.

In case you are serious about building your online business, I suggest you join my free course on Understanding Scams and Building a business online. You can access this from my homepage and remember this is absolutely free. This course would have detailed analysis on different scams and teach you in details how to start an online business from scratch. And as mentioned all this is for free.

Also, in case you are wondering what exactly is the best product when it comes to building an online business and making money, you can check out my #1 recommendation.

I hope my PaysForever review has been able to clear your doubts about the product. Please leave a comment below on what you think about the review. You can also mail me at sirshendu@onlinescamkiller.com and I will get back to you.

What Is Banner Advertising??

Banner Advertising is probably one of the most popular forms of online advertising and is used widely for product or website promotion. You can see banners in probably every website you visit. Let us take a detailed look at exactly what is banner advertising and its different methods.

what-is-banner-advertising

What is Banner Advertising??

Banner is a method of advertising your website or products, by placing rectangular graphic displays on different websites. These displays would be highlighting your products or websites and the objective of using these displays or banners is to attract the visitors of the host website to your product/website.

Banners are normally of two types:-

  1. A rectangular display which stretches across the top or bottom of a website. These are called Leaderboards.
  2. A rectangular display which stretches on the left or right sidebars. These are called Skyscrapers.

Banner Advertising Payment Methods

The first question that would come to your mind is why would some other website host my website’s banner?? The reason is simple, they would be paid for advertising my website in theirs.

There are different methods of arriving at a payment criterion but there are 3 most popular methods of fixing the advertising rate:-

  1. Cost per impression (CPM)- In this method, the host gets paid for every website visitor who sees the advertisers ad. They are normally charged per thousand impressions. For example, a CPM 0f $3 for a banner ad means that the host would charge $3 per 1000 times the ad is displayed on his site.
  2. Cost per click (CPC)- In this method, the host gets paid every time a visitor clicks on the advertiser’s banner. This means that the advertiser would be paying the host for visitors of his websites who visit the advertiser’s website. The rates are higher than CPM because here you are paying for traffic to your website which gets diverted from the host website.
  3. Cost Per Action (CPA)- In this method, the host gets paid when a visitor from his site clicks on the banner and then goes to the advertiser’s site and completes some action. For example, the visitor clicks the banner and goes to the advertiser’s site and then fills up an enrolment form there. This is the costliest method of banner advertising because here you are paying for a specific action on your site to the advertiser.

The methods you use will primarily depend on the product or campaign. If you require a huge traffic to your site, then you can focus on CPM or CPC, but when you are promoting an expensive or an unusual product and you are only concerned about sales, then you go for the more costly CPA method.

There are other methods of advertising also, but these 3 are most commonly used.

examples-of-banners

In a nutshell

Banner advertising is probably one of the most popular methods of online advertising. They are incredibly effective if the campaign and the ads are designed properly. But if the ads are not designed properly or are confusing then you tend to lose a huge amount of money in advertising costs. Thus it is important that you are very clear on how you plan to build and post your banners.

Hopefully, this article would have helped you in understanding what is banner advertising and its various methods. You can enroll in my online course on Understanding Scams and learn to build your own online business for free. You can access the course from my Homepage.

What Is Safelist Advertising??

Safelists have come up as an advertising tool in the last few years. A lot of internet marketers have been using Safelists to market their products. We would take a look at the pros and cons of Safelists advertising and marketing methods. But before that let us look at exactly what is Safelist advertising??

what-is-safelist-advertising

What is Safelist Advertising??

A Safelist is primarily a membership based email list where members mail to each other and promote their products. Each member has to first opt-in to receive these emails. So these mails will not be considered as spams as the full list is an opt-in list. Normally in most Safelist programs if you opt out of the mailing list, you will also lose the ability to send your promotional mails to the members.

Advantages of Using Safelists

Safelist is coming up as an internet marketing tool and there are a few reasons for that. First of all, most Safelist products offer a free membership, which enables you to send your promotional emails to other members for free. Although there is normally a cap to the number of free emails you can send, you can earn more email credits by reading more emails of fellow members. This feature actually encourages members to read the offerings sent by other members, since in return they also get to email more members. You can also purchase upgrade packs to send more emails to members and increase your email sending cap.

Safelists also feature a 100 percent opt-in model. That means each and every member has opted to receive these emails and so they cannot cry spam. So you can send your promotional features to this group without any worries of being listed as a spammer. This gives you peace of mind while promoting your online business.

Also, most good Safelist Products have a huge database of members. thus you get to promote your products to a huge group for free or for at a very cheap rate.

safelist-advertising

Disadvantages of using Safelists

The first thing to remember is that the group of members members to whom you are promoting your products are actually a set of sellers, and not buyers.

That means that nearly all of these members are actually here to primarily promote their own products and not buy somebody else’s products. Thus their interest levels in responding to your promotion is very less. Remember, that they are primarily opening emails because they get free credits so that they can themselves send more and more emails. Thus they are primarily reading your promotions because they want to promote their own products and not because they want to buy your products.

Which effectively means that your sales will be low in numbers. Forget sales, even clicks to your affiliate or your website links will also be low from this group of users.

Final Verdict

Safelists can be an useful add-on tool to your promotional campaign but they cannot be the base of your campaign. The conversions are pretty low, but since using these services are either free or come at a very cheap price-point, thus you do not have anything to lose by trying Safelists. At the worst case scenario there will be no sales, but hey, you are not spending anything. You might actually get some traffic and sales for free and that is never a bad thing.

There are other methods to promote your site and I discuss in details quite a few of these methods in my free course on avoiding scams and learning online marketing techniques. You can access the course from my Getting Started section.

Why Am I Not Making Money Online??

Everyone who is into online marketing has definitely faced this question at some point in their lives- Why am I not making online? What are others doing that I am not doing? You get to see success stories all around but unfortunately, you can’t see yourself as one. What went wrong?? The answer probably is simple. You have not build trust with your readers yet.

why-am-i-not-making-money-online

Analyzing what went wrong??

Ok, so you can see a lot of people around you who are claiming to make money online, but you are yet to see success. You have tried marketing different products through your websites and blogs but probably have not been able to taste the sweetness of success. The only question in your mind is that why is it that you are not making money online?? You need to sit back and think. Revisit your website and the articles you have written to promote your affiliate products and then think, think hard.

Do these articles attract you as a neutral reader? Does it indulge you? Does it make you want to read more?? Does it make you want to buy the product you are promoting?

Remember, the person who is buying is a normal human being and not a machine. Your articles should be targetted to influence and convince fellow humans to buy the products you promote. And for that, you need to build trust with your readers. They need to trust your decision and invest in it. Your article has to make your reader believe that you are providing the solution to his problems.

Building trust with your audience

building-trust-with-readers

Trust does not come naturally. It has to be build, and you have to work hard for that. And only after that will your audience buy from you. Let me discuss a few techniques which I believe can help you build trust with your audience:-

  1. Writing well researched and unique articles: – First thing you need to stop is copying from other blogs and building up an article based on that. Your readers will find out sooner or later that you have nothing new to offer, and that would be a very negative scenario for you and your website. It is important that you spend some time researching your article and then writing it. Rehashed articles hardly help in building trust or sales.
  2. Get comments and reply to them: – Encourage your visitors to comment on your articles, and ensure that you reply to those comments. These comments help build up a relationship with your audience and acts as a great source to build up audience trust. It really helps to make your audience believe that they are important to you and what they think matters to you a lot.
  3. Build up an email mailing list: – Get your readers to leave you their email IDs and build up a mailing list. You can offer them a free review in return, or maybe a free report related to the products offered on your website. For example, for websites promoting weight-loss products you can provide a free report on obesity and its harmful effects. Later you can build up a relationship with them through email marketing. But remember not to spam them with too many hard sells. Then the trust you built will probably not last long.

These are 3 basic methods to build trust with your audience and ensure you get more sales. There are a lot of other methods but these 3 are the most common one used by online marketers.

Analysis of AffiloBlueprint

AffiloBlueprint provides you with 91 training videos broken into 12 sections, teaching you the basics of affiliate marketing. This product is actually great for beginners since it teaches you step by step and starts from scratch. Also, the homework’s are designed so that you build up your business while completing them. Thus for beginners, who have no experience in affiliate marketing this product may come as a boon.

The videos are easy to follow and they actually demonstrate each and every task they teach, which makes it great for understanding and applying the concepts. Affiliate marketing can be a great business if you learn it correctly and this tool seems good for it. But the videos might not excite marketers who already have some knowledge and have done a bit of affiliate marketing in the past.

You also get access to a WordPress theme called Affilotheme, which helps you build your website with just a few clicks. You also get hosting for your website for free (1 year).

The support community is also very good and is available to help you solve your problems which you might face while building your business. A lot of focus is given to the generation of website traffic and that impressed me quite a lot. Without traffic your business is useless, so the focus on traffic generation methods shows that the course understands and focusses on what is required to succeed in your online business.

The course also guides you in finding the best products to promote for your niche and that reduces your headache in looking around the internet for authentic products to sell.

Overall, the course structure was pretty good and this seems like a great product for beginners in affiliate marketing.

In a nutshell

AffiloBlueprint is recommended for beginners in Affiliate and Online marketing. The training is good and covers all the basic aspects step by step. Definitely recommended. You can join by clicking here.
