Basic Google SEO: Content Vs Hacking

ayam Everyone wants to get to the top of Google and get free traffic. In 2001 when I started my first website, this was really easy to do. Over time however, search engines have grown more complex, splitting marketers into two schools of thought: give Google what they want, or hack Google to get what you want. The first school of thought – giving Google what they want – revolves around content. The idea here is that Google wants to show its users the most relevant content when they search. Content can be an article, a Wikipedia page, a product listing, a...

WhatsApp Marketing: Using WhatsApp Web for Your Business

WhatsApp needs no introduction, but a lot of people aren’t aware of WhatsApp Web, a web-based interface that allows you to use WhatsApp just like any other desktop app. With this feature, it’s possible to use WhatsApp in your company as a communication, customer support & marketing tool easily. WhatsApp web needs to authenticate with your phone, so you would need a dedicated phone with a WhatsApp account nearby and switched on at all times.

Netflix in Malaysia Vs. Iflix

mmm Just started using Netflix a few days ago in Malaysia, and here’s my review of my experience and if Netflix will be worth your money! This has been a long time coming. Without apps like Netflix, your Apple TV can seem a bit redundant unless you have shitloads of money to buy shitloads of movies from iTunes. The demand has always been there for Netflix, which led to many different tactics to signup for the US version and watch it in Malaysia. Now that Netflix is finally here, can it topple iFlix, or other media streaming services in...

We Made $7,000 By Teaching Online Courses in 2014

In 2014 we did an experiment in online education. Instead of releasing our videos for free on YouTube and depending on Google for some spare change, we decided to sell them as a course on Udemy. The result? $7,000 in a year, with no significant marketing on our part. The figure can be much higher, and I have seen Udemy instructors in our niche making upwards of $20,000 per month. However, since we did everything half-assed and depended on Udemy to promote our courses, it’s 100% autopilot. Who can complain for getting $7k on autopilot? I started cheap with just...
