Likes.com Can Be The Next Twitter.

Why Settle For Second Best (Twitter) When You Can Have Likes.com?

Elon Musk is in the news because he wants to acquire “Twitter.com”.

OK I get it, he wants his own social media platform that he can control, but what if there was an easier way and he had something everyone is doing for the most part and that is getting likes to social media posts. Imagine having a domain name called www.likes.com

With the right people to build a platform, Elon would own a social media app that could potentially blow everyone else out of the water, it is not exactly rocket science.

Having a team dedicated to the platform, from website designers and app developers to digital marketers and social media influencers will be quicker to launch than building a colony on Mars. He would have to employ a special ops department specifically for the project. This project would be bigger than anything he could imagine and he would have to have offices in multiple regions. This would need planning from who would build the platform to the staff that would have to run it on a daily basis. This would create jobs in multiple countries.

If I were in Elon’s shoes I would build something Grander than Twitter or Meta/Facebook and let the other social media platforms hurtle into cyberspace.

With all the money he is expected to pay to get control of ‘Twitter’ I would save him the money and the trouble and get him to build something himself, rather than squabble over ownership of a platform I personally very rarely use @ukdomainbrokers, although Elon @elonmusk is pretty active on there.

HIDDEN SECRETS OF MONEY

I have purposely not put these videos in chronological order because you need to watch the first video to get a grasp of what Mike is teaching. Mike teaches us about the money system and what is money and what is currency, yes there is a differences and how the global economy works.

The “Hidden Secrets of Money” videos are easy to understand and the concept of money should be taught in schools. We should all know how money and currency are created and learn about debt ceilings and deficit spending. This is also good for budding economists/financiers contemplating careers in the financial world.

Final Thoughts From The Editor.

If you see what is happening today with P#tins W#r, with all the sanctions, have you wondered how these people (Oligarchs/P#tin) are trading/living if their bank accounts are frozen?

If you look at the bigger picture w#ar is big business, the production, manufacturing, distribution of artillery, ammunition, staff, and operations, etc. Furthermore, the owners of the Federal Reserve get an annual 6% commission, on our hard-earned sweat and labor, yet no one knows who these people/corporations are because it is a closely guarded secret.

We are pawns in a massive game of monopoly.

We do not know what the future holds, banks have been known to close.

Shanghai Travel Marketing

Shanghai Travel Marketing

Shanghai’s marketing strategy of spreading awareness when east meets west, fundamentally hires westerners to promote tourism so that the information can be reached all corners of the world. Marketing in a foreign language has barriers because of GEO targeting and fencing:

Businesses in the east will usually contract their marketing to a dedicated marketing firm or advertising agency. More rarely, a trade association or government agency (such as the Agricultural Marketing Service) advertises on behalf of an entire industry or locality, often a specific type of food, food from a specific area, or a city or region as a tourism destination.

With this said having an exact match searchable keyword/phrase domain name will help to secure global positioning.

Shanghai Tourism – Where is Shanghai?

Pronunciation

Shanghai (/ʃæŋˈhaɪ/;[15] Chinese: 上海, Shanghainese: Zaon6he5 [zɑ̃̀.hɛ́], Standard Mandarin pronunciation: [ʂâŋ.xàɪ] is one of the four direct-administered municipalities of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Location

Shanghai is a city located on the southern estuary of the Yangtze River, which has the Huangpu River flowing through it.

Population

Shanghai has a population of 24.89 million as of 2021.

Shanghai has 39,300,000 inhabitants living in the Shanghai metropolitan area of China, It is the second most populated city in the world (after Chongqing) and the only city in East Asia with a GDP greater than its corresponding capital.

Shanghai ranks second among the administrative divisions of Mainland China in the human development index (after Beijing).

Production

Greater Shanghai metropolitan area was estimated to produce a gross metropolitan product (nominal) of nearly 9.1 trillion RMB ($1.33 trillion) as of 2018, exceeding that of Mexico with GDP of $1.22 trillion, the 15th largest in the world.

Shanghai is home to one of the world’s major centres for finance, business, economics, research, education, science and technology, manufacturing, tourism, culture, dining, art, fashion, sports, and transportation.

The Port of Shanghai is the world’s busiest container port. Shanghai is classified as a Large-Port Megacity, the largest type of port city in the world. Although the Middle East UAE has bigger plans to build the largest of all industries to outrank the rest of the world.

Shanghai Airport

Shanghai Pudong International Airport was one of the world’s 10 busiest airports by passenger traffic, and one of the two international airports serving the Shanghai metropolitan area, the other one being the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport.

History

Shanghai was originally a fishing village and market town and eventually grew economically in the 19th century due to both domestic and foreign trade and its favourable port location.

The city was one of five treaty ports forced to open to European trade after the First Opium War. The Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession were subsequently established.

Shanghai city became a primary commercial and financial hub of Asia in the 1930s. During the Second Sino-Japanese War, the city was the site of the major Battle of Shanghai. After the war, with the communist takeover of the mainland in 1949, trade was limited to other socialist countries and the city’s global influence declined.

Despite this, modern trade in the newly established PRC began in the late 1940s/early 1950s, and Shanghai officially became one of the biggest and most important cities among socialist states before the economic reform in 1978.

By the 1990s, economic reforms introduced by Deng Xiaoping a decade earlier resulted in an intense redevelopment of the city, especially the Pudong New Area, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment. The city has since re-emerged as a hub for international trade and finance; it is the home of the Shanghai Stock Exchange, one of the largest stock exchanges in the world by market capitalization, and the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone, the first free-trade zone in mainland China.

As of 2020, Shanghai was classified as an Alpha+ (global first tier) city by the GaWC and ranked as the 3rd most competitive and largest financial centre in the world behind New York City and London.

Ranking

Shanghai has the largest metro network of any city in the world, the fifth-highest number of billionaires of any city in the world, the fifth-largest number of skyscrapers of any city in the world, the fifth-most Fortune Global 500 headquarters of any city in the world within its city limits, the third-largest scientific research output of any city in the world, and highly ranked Double First Class Universities including Fudan, Shanghai Jiao Tong, Tongji, East China Normal, Shanghai, Donghua, ShanghaiTech, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and East China University of Science and Technology.

Shanghai has been described as the “showpiece” of the booming economy of China. Featuring several architectural styles such as Art Deco and shikumen, the city is renowned for its Lujiazui skyline, museums, and historic buildings including the City God Temple, Yu Garden, the China Pavilion, and buildings along the Bund, which includes Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Shanghai is also known for its sugary cuisine, the distinctive local language, and vibrant international flair.

Shanghai is the home of the New Development Bank, a multilateral development bank established by the BRICS states and the city hosts more than 75 foreign representatives, the second highest after Beijing, and numerous national and international events every year, such as Shanghai Fashion Week, the Chinese Grand Prix and ChinaJoy.

Shanghai is the highest-earning tourist city in the world, with the seventh most five-star hotel in the world, and the third tallest building in the world, the Shanghai Tower. In 2018, Shanghai hosted the first China International Import Expo (CIIE), the world’s first import-themed national-level expo. Shanghai joined the UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities in 2019.

Tourism

Passport Entry Requirements. Customs in Shanghai

Visitors must have a valid passport with a 6-month validity beyond the date of arrival and two consecutive blank pages remaining to allow for visas and stamps that need to appear together.

For Residents of the United Kingdom: The requirement for application residents must have a standard 10-year passport (5-year passport for children under 16). Contact your nearest passport office, major post office, or travel agency, or contact the United Kingdom Passport Service at tel. 0300/222-0000 or search its website at www.ips.gov.uk.

For Residents of the United States: Whether you’re applying in person or by mail, you can download passport applications from the U.S. State Department website at http://travel.state.gov. To find your regional passport office, either check the U.S. State Department website or call the National Passport Information Centre toll-free number (tel. 877/487-2778) for automated information.

For Residents of the rest of the World: Do check with your own passport office located in your own country before embarking on any travel arrangements, also check with the Chinese Embassy Consulate for Visa requirements.

Visas

All visitors to mainland China (but not the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau) are required to have a visa.

Tour groups are usually issued a group visa, with the paperwork handled by the travel agency (check with your agent).

Individual travelers should apply for visas from their nearest Chinese embassy or consulate.

Contact information for all Chinese embassies and consulates can be found at www.fmprc.gov.cn/eng.

Some consulates require in-person applications while others allow applications by post or courier with extra charges. Visas are typically processed in 3 to 5 business days, though 1-day service is possible if you apply in person and pay extra fees.

The most common type of visa is the single-entry “L” tourist visa, usually good for 30 days, though you can request a longer validity period.

Your request may not always be granted, and in some cases, you may be asked to produce supporting documentation (such as a travel agent-issued itinerary or an airline ticket with a return date).

If you’re going to be leaving and then returning to mainland China (even if you’re just making a short trip to Hong Kong), apply for a double-entry visa.

There are also multiple-entry 6-month or 1-year visas, which are now increasingly easy to come by. Visas are typically valid for 1 to 3 months after the date of issue.

To apply for a visa, you must complete an application form, which you can request by mail or download from the various consular websites.

Travelers must also supply at least one passport photo per individual traveler (including a child traveling on a parent’s passport). It is good to have a few duplicates just in case you lose or damage one.

Though the visa is valid for the entire country (with a few exceptions that may require special permits), in general, avoid mentioning Tibet or Xinjiang on your application.

Useful Addresses & Telephone Numbers

Following is a list of embassy addresses and visa fees for some countries, along with their respective Web pages that link to the appropriate consular sites and downloadable visa application forms.

Disclaimer: Visa fees listed are accurate as of press time, but are subject to change at any time.

Canada: 515 St. Patrick St., Ottawa, ON K1N 5H3 (tel. 613/789-3434; fax 613/789-1911; www.chinaembassycanada.org). Single-entry visas are C$50; double-entry C$75. Applications must be delivered and collected by hand or sent via a visa agency.

Getting a Visa in Hong Kong — Nationals of most developed nations require only a valid passport to enter Hong Kong, even though it’s a part of China. Chinese visas (single- and double-entry only; multiple-entry visas have to be obtained in your home country) can be easily secured at countless Hong Kong travel agencies, but they are cheapest at the Visa Office of the PRC, 26 Harbour Rd., China Resources Building, Lower Block, seventh floor, Wanchai (tel. 852/3413-2424; www.fmcoprc.gov.hk; Mon-Fri 9 am-noon and 2-5 pm), where single-entry visas cost HK$1,020 for U.S. citizens, HK$450 for U.K. citizens, HK$150 for Canadians and Australians. At press time, the office was accepting HK$ cash only.

An alternative outlet to get visas is at the Hong Kong operation of CTS (China Travel Service), with a popular branch at 27-33 Nathan Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2315-7188; fax 852/2315-7292; www.ctshk.com). Or try Grand Profit International Travel Agency, 705AA, seventh floor, New East Ocean Centre, 9 Science Museum Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2723-3288).

Visa Extensions — As a rule, single-entry tourist visas may be extended once for a maximum of 30 days at the local PSB (Public Security Bureau, gong’an ju) in most cities. In Shanghai, head to the Foreign Affairs Section of the PSB (chujing guanliju) which has been relocated to Pudong, at Minsheng Lu 1500 (tel. 021/2895-1900, ext. 2; Metro: Shanghai Kejiguan/Science and Technology Museum, exit 3). Office hours are Monday through Saturday 9 am to 5 pm. Extensions usually require 5 business days. Bring your passport and two passport photos.

Customs

What You Can Bring into China – Do check with your local passport office what you take. In general, you can bring in anything for personal use that you will take with you when you leave, including laptops, GPS devices, cameras, video recorders, and other electronic equipment.

You’re also allowed four bottles of alcoholic beverages and three cartons of cigarettes.

Prohibited

Travelers are prohibited from bringing in firearms, drugs, plant material, animals, and food from diseased areas, as well as “printed matter, magnetic media, films, or photographs which are deemed to be detrimental to the political, economic, cultural, and moral interests of China.”

This last section covers pornography, overtly political and religious material, and anything related to Tibet. In practice, however, small amounts of personal reading material in non-Chinese languages have yet to present a problem.

Currency

Currency more than US$5,000 is supposed to be declared on Customs forms, though most major points of entry seem to have dispensed with the Customs declaration form entirely.

Souvenirs

You can bring back with you antiques purchased in China, defined as any item created between 1795 and 1949, which must be accompanied by an official red wax seal before being taken out of the country. Any item created before 1795 is prohibited from export.

More Information

For information on what you’re allowed to bring home, contact one of the following agencies:

U.S. Citizens: U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP), 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20229 (tel. 877/287-8667; www.cbp.gov).

Canadian Citizens: Canada Border Services Agency, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0L8 (tel. 800/461-9999 in Canada, or 204/983-3500; www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca).

Censorship & Racism

Censorship & Racism

I am reading an MSN news article today about Albanian gang members who killed a 23-year-old and dumped him ‘like rubbish’.

Albanian gang members killed 23-year-old and dumped him ‘like rubbish’ (msn.com)

This incident happened in my hometown of Cardiff and I really wanted to comment but I have been censored in the past for suggesting people start a petition over another incident and I have been warned that MSN (Microsoft) that I have to abide by their rules otherwise they can stop me from making my opinion known and eventually ban me.

What happened to free speech?

I wanted to actually address a few people making comments about (letting them in).

Does this mean a person from another country is inferior to you? A person from anywhere around the world is human, has the same red blood as you, and has just as much right to walk this planet as you have.

Reading the comment made my blood boil. I quote:

“if you don’t let them in this won’t happen anyone listening???????????????????????????????????”

I actually did comment by saying “your comment sounds very (R)”

I found this comment from someone else spot on:

“A drug granny who got stabbed to death storming a house with her sons, with machetes and axes in hand. Trying to collect a cannabis debt? She was very British. Care to explain that one? I find it laughable that the livestock of bigotville try to paint this picture that the UK was some kind of crime free utopia before minorities came over here”!

To read the rest of the comments you need to click the link

Racism

My father a polish soldier came to the UK to fight with the Brits and when WWII was over Winston Churchill as a thank-you granted all the Poles and their families permanent residency. Does that make me inferior because I have Polish Roots?

I was actually born in the UK and have been subjected to a lot of racism over the years. I was told on more than one occasion to go back to my own country or have been called a peasant (CD). Just because my ancestors worked on farms and fields does not equate to me being a milkmaid, I am a highly educated businesswoman and published author. Yet when you call people out for their rude remarks they turn it around by saying “I was only joking” or “you can’t take a joke”. Always, always “before opening your mouth put your brain in gear” and think if your joke may actually be offensive.

Racism From An Early Age

I was bullied and made fun of at the age of 5 when I could not speak English. This carried on through my teens and into my adult years. Because of this, I have not used my legal name, instead, use a pseudonym because of the racism I have encountered. It’s a very sad world we live in if you can be shamed for having a foreign surname.

The same people that are spouting that the UK is not racist are the same people that voted for us to leave the EU and now look at the mess we are in.

I am not condoning what this unfortunate soul that lost his life did, it does not matter what part of the world you come from, if you experience hardship there are some that will make bad choices.

Censorship

I was not going to comment, but just in case my comment got censored again I decided to write this post and could say what I wanted on my own channel making my own rules. No one can censor me here, although I have learned a trick or two and that is to break the word up using symbols such as r#cism or abbreviate it (R).

I just find it so ironic that people saying immigrants were taking their jobs, where in reality were boosting the economy are now suffering the consequences due to the rise of the cost of living because of the trillions Briton owes due to leaving the EU (Brexit).

Leave Megan & Harry Alone!

Leave Megan & Harry Alone!

Practically every day there is something NEGATIVE to be said about Megan & Harry and today I read the headline from the Daily Express article written by Leia Paxton, QUOTING ‘Meghan Markle should ‘win an Oscar for ‘narcissism’ as Duchess branded ‘a shocker’. Speaking of Meghan during a Sky News Australia discussion, ‘Ms. Elsworth’ said: “She should win a female Oscar for her narcissism, she is a shocker.

Meghan Markle should ‘win an Oscar for ‘narcissism’ as Duchess branded ‘a shocker’ (msn.com)

I gather Ms.Elsworth has never experienced ‘Narcissism’ to actually use these words correctly.

Narcissism does not only describe the abuser’s personality traits it can lead to domestic violence. For someone who has experienced narcissism firsthand, this caused a trigger of emotions to come flooding back.

Study: Narcissistic Traits Can Lead to Aggression and Violence (verywellhealth.com)

Narcissism | Psychology Today

Bad journalism does not do the writer any justice because there are repercussions to writing things that are deemed defamatory.

I hope Megan sues anyone that accuses her of narcissism for defamation of character and I would start with the person that thought she would get her five minutes of fame by ‘NAME CALLING’ which is in fact a narcissistic trait.

The journalists that are saying they are sick and tired of Megan and Harry should just leave them alone. Furthermore, if the truth is known I am sure people are sick and tired of all the bad press surrounding this which should stop, but where money is to be made won’t.

Every person that has said anything bad about the Sussexes, is as much to blame.

I am sick and tired of hearing and reading about this, why can’t the media just leave them alone, why can they not focus their attention on more important matters, like ‘the cost of living, or inflation?

Leave Megan and Harry to get on with their lives. What they chose to do, to make money is their business, and anyone that has ever said anything bad about them is in my eyes as much a narcissist as the one that is being accused.

In fact, I am sure the Royal Family is sick and tired of this media frenzy, and fueling the fire from the media shows little respect, not only for Megan and Harry but also for the Royals.

The Cause Of Price Rises In The UK.

The Cause Of Price Rises In The UK.

Have you ever wondered why everything is going up in the UK at an alarming rate? Are we led to believe that everything is going up because of Put#ns W#r? (Words are being censored).

The reality is something I have been saying for some time and that is the UK Government is in debt.

Borrowing November just gone was more than double what it was of November 2021.

Interest on government debts stood at £7.3 billion, up £2.4 billion on the same time last year.

Public sector net debt was up to 98.7% of GDP from 98.2% the previous month.

Danni Hewson, AJ Bell financial analyst, commented on the latest public sector finances:Even in the midst of the pandemic November’s borrowing figures didn’t reach the heights, they’ve reached this year. The government’s simply spending far more than it’s bringing in despite the fact the tax take has increased significantly. One major factor behind the rise in borrowing costs is our old adversary inflation. Interest payments on all that debt have shot up to reach another record high for the month, coming in at more than seven billion pounds, a rise of almost two and a half billion on November 2021“.

This then has a knock-on effect on the citizens of the UK. When we left the EU, the UK automatically owed trillions in debt.

My argument then and still stands today Brexit was sold on the fact with a lot of people wanted to vote out of the EU because of immigration. But immigration actually boosted the economy because whilst they worked they were paying taxes and buying and shipping abroad. Immigration has now escalated to another level of helping Ukrainians to start new lives whilst escaping their war-torn country.

So my point was would you allow a bunch of strangers to decide what is good for your company/business or would you entrust financial advisors? The same can be said that people who do not have an ounce of common sense let alone political or economic knowledge why were they given a chance to vote on the state of our country?

Everyone that voted out is now left to blame for the mess the UK is in and it’s only going to get worse.

If you do not know what you are talking about do not pretend that you do. By voting, you impact the country in the long run. People should educate themselves before talking about politics or economics and should not be made to vote unless they have passed an IQ test.

UK inflation: Is Brexit causing it to accelerate?

Former Bank of England policymaker Adam Posen insists that 80 percent of the reason why the UK has the highest inflation of any G7 country is due to the impact of Brexit on immigration and the labour market.

He warned: “You’ve seen a huge drop in migrant labour, a disruption in labour markets that everybody experienced due to Covid and reopening, but with fundamentally less elasticity… and that [Brexit] has to be a major part of it,” he told a conference at Kings College in London.

How to Create an eBook – Free eBook Download – New Version 11/12/22

How to Create an eBook – Free eBook Download! New Version 11/12/22

Keep your business moving forward Generate Instant Publicity! 24-7PressRelease.com

** Disclaimer – As long as you see the link on this page to download, the eBook will always be free, but that does not say that I may also consider selling hard copies on Amazon in the future.

“Why all your marketing should include eBooks? Business owners, entrepreneurs, and freelancers all can benefit from creating their own eBooks. eBooks can range on a wide variety of subjects, ultimately generating traffic & leads”.

Before delving into what are ebooks and how they can help us, we have to first do some psycho-analysis. What do people want in business other than the obvious and more leads, they need valuable information that can help them without it costing them a penny or a dime. They want information that they can implement into their own marketing strategies and that is why I am on a voyage to do a series of business ebooks that will not cost you anything other than your time reading them.

I start off by showing you my own marketing strategies.

I have tried and tested a lot of marketing techniques and get-rich-quick schemes and successfully all they have done is burned holes in my pockets. I find the only way to get interactions is through networking and being constantly active on my blogs and social media channels.

When I hear how someone says they have made zero to a million in 30 days and make you listen to an hour and a half of waffle for then to upsell you a ticket at $500 it makes me mad because there are people that will pay that sort of money because they are desperate at being millionaires when in reality the only person that gets rich is the person that advertises their campaign whilst sitting in their private jets.

Believe me, I have tried the videos ads and banner ads, and I have tried giving my services away for free but the problem is if someone has never heard of you why should they trust you?

I have now realized that blogging, affiliate marketing, networking, podcasting, public speaking, and giving valuable content can be implemented in business and will undoubtedly attract followers and generate leads.

Here is a prime example of someone I follow on LinkedIn. If you have not heard of Rob Moore he is a successful entrepreneur multi-millionaire author, property investor, public speaker, podcaster, and top social media influencer based in the UK who recently gave a Mercedes away and loads of cash. He has interviewed some of the most famous and controversial people on this planet.

There is a clue in the above paragraph… (author and giveaway). Yes, he has written many books and is a best-selling author on how to get out of debt and gives financial advice. So the point I am making is he gives away valuable content and assets and that is how he gains his followers.

I on the other hand want to help business owners, entrepreneurs, or freelancers to scale their businesses to the next level with my own tried and tested methods without it costing you an arm and a leg. I will on my sites offer this information for free without you having to sit through boring podcasts and you can download the books to read when and where it suits you.

What Is A Marketing Ebook?

An ebook ( in short, an “electronic book”) is an alternative to a hard physical copy, which makes them more versatile. The digital version of a paperback can be read on either a computer or a handheld device. eBooks are usually formatted as PDF documents to transfer quickly from one person to another, although they may be available in other versions depending on the device a person is using.

The fundamentals of ebook marketing ebooks are to generate leads. This gated content can range from whitepapers, ebooks, and videos to case studies, product demos, and webinars. Gated content is online material that requires users to fill out a form to access the document. These forms typically ask for basic personal information, like name and email address, or registration on a website.

Why Use Marketing Ebooks?

According to statistics 65% of B2B companies use ebooks in their content marketing campaigns. Businesses can talk about their industry and services, moreover, ebooks are considered one of the most powerful marketing tools and can gain traction if the content is valuable to the end user. One cannot confuse a company brochure with an eBook. An ebook is a “how to” problem-solving guide. It is meant for the reader to gain insights and use the lesson in their own business.

Benefits to marketing using eBooks:

  • eBooks can increase brand awareness
  • eBooks can attract high-quality leads
  • eBooks can build credibility, authority, and trust
  • eBooks can help you become an industry leader and help you stand out from the competition
  • eBooks can improve your marketing strategies

When writing and marketing your ebooks it’s easy to think you need to deliver the definitive ebook, but that is usually not the case because the chances are someone has already written something similar the difference is you have your own arena of followers who you can market and advertise to and they won’t go elsewhere and over time will become loyal to you.

Your ebook may be a subscriber incentive, you should make your book appealing without making it into a bible. If you give all your secrets away why should your readers bother coming back?

eBooks Increase Brand Awareness

When creating ebooks you can target specific niche audiences. This is beneficial if people have never heard of you. It helps to promote brand awareness.

Some businesses may seek help from market research agencies and may conduct market research surveys on a specific topic. thus putting all the information together in a marketing ebook.

By giving a brief snippet of what your book is about, you will capture people’s curiosity and anyone interested in your content will want to download it.

eBooks Attract High-Quality Leads

Marketing ebooks are probably the most popular and effective strategy for generating relevant leads. However knowing how to write an ebook, format it and convert it into different versions is another ball game, not to mention if you wish to publish and distribute it for sale. I have therefore written an ebook on “how to Create aneBook”. There are a few things you should know one of them is a sloppy ebook will do you no favors so it needs to be well-written and proofread.

eBooks are the perfect solution if you want to expand your network, and gain followers and possible clientele.

The most important part of you being the author of your eBook is that you gain credibility and become an industry leader in your field.

Your ebook by far must be a problem-solving guide so that your readers gain knowledge. Your ebook should inspire, and motivate people to create their own ebooks.

Your ebook should be just about building an email list although your followers will appreciate any other books you may publish in the future.

Your ebook should showcase the products and services that you provide, by showing your expertise. It should also be a representation of your brand and what you can do for the reader should they decide to call on you.

eBooks Build Authority, Credibility, And Trust

In order to convince people that you are better than your competitors, you need to establish yourself as an industry leader who has authority over the industry and extensive knowledge of the business you are marketing.

Write about a topic that you have extensive knowledge in or if you are a content writer you can extend your knowledge through research. A business owner who would like to have an ebook but perhaps may not have time to create one may call on ghostwriters to collaborate with marketing agencies to help them generate leads.

To position yourself as an industry leader you have to show your audience you are credible and that the products and services you are marketing are of high caliber, you have to show that you are an expert in your field. A well-written marketing ebook will open up new opportunities that can lead to new clients. If you succeed in gaining the trust of your target group, your sales will skyrocket.

eBooks Help You Become An Industry Leader

If you want to stay ahead of the competition you have to be the best of the best. You have to go above and beyond your call of duty.

When writing your book concentrate on what you are teaching. The book is not about you it is about the knowledge you have gained that you want to pass on to others. You must create content that stands out from the crowd in a saturated market.

Your book should be about problem-solving and you can link certain points of the book to the services you provide for example I have added links to my content writing, blog development, and internet marketing in strategic places that do not take away the focus of what the book is about. My readers may want a helping hand with proofreading, website design, or digital marketing.

eBooks Improve Your Marketing Strategy

Your ebook should be educational, informative, inspiring, and insightful. In order to market your ebook you need to be familiar with search engine optimization and you should start with a landing page, blog, or article.

You should also have a network of connections you can share your article, including social media platforms, groups, and pages. In my book, I talk about SEO link wheels and how having multiple blogs and websites helps to generate traffic from multiple directions using an exact-match searchable keyword or phrase domain names.

If you run a blog you will be familiar with blog posts, these are an excellent starting point for marketing your articles which you can monetize with affiliate links and at the same time have a subscribe and download form ready for your readers.

Where you have written articles on the subject matter you can expand your ebook with more detailed information about a particular topic, improving their content marketing strategy. With ebooks, you can elaborate in-depth concepts and ideas.

An ebook allows the consumer to have your content on hand as a handy guide that can be downloaded and read on their preferred choice of device.

eBooks are by far one of the most powerful converting lead magnets that you will ever need in your marketing strategy.

Hopefully, the teachings of this article and the ebook will bring you sales, leads, and conversions.

10 Best Sites for Awesome Stock Photos (Paid & Free)

10 Best Sites for Awesome Stock Photos (Paid & Free)

Written by: Ivy Attie, Content Manager, Research & Author Stockphotos.com

You must have heard of the famous adage, “actions speak louder than words.” But in today’s online world, it is pictures that speak louder (and harder) than words or lengthy texts. The best way to send your message to the target audience is to simply attach a meaningful picture to it!

The human brain is known to process visuals 60,000 times faster than text. This means you have a much better chance of grabbing your audience’s attention with amazing images than with plain, bland text.

So, where can you get these  “amazing” images from? 

Well, there are a number of websites that offer stock photos. These pictures are readily available in almost all possible niches. Plus, they boast high quality and can be used for all creative purposes.

Montenegro Airlines

Montenegro Airlines

Domain Names For Sale!

Airline.me and Airlines.me for $600 each

The domain name extension (.ME) corresponds to the country code top-level domain (TLD) of Montenegro but the TLD is available for registration worldwide.

Domain extensions are the final part of any domain name (.com, .co.uk). They give websites their identity (like what country they´re from.

In terms of SEO is by far one of the most important strategies to have a domain name that appertains to the location your business is in.

It, therefore, makes sense for airlines flying in and out of Montenegro to have the domain extension .ME

Where is Montenegro

Montenegro is a small mountainous country located in South Eastern Europe on the Balkan Peninsula. It is positioned in the Northern and Eastern hemispheres of the Earth. Montenegro has a coast on the Adriatic Sea to the south. Montenegro Facts.

Montenegro Airlines a.d. (Montenegrin: Montenegro erlajns) was the flag carrier of Montenegro, headquartered in Podgorica. It operated scheduled and charter services throughout Europe from its hub at Podgorica Airport with a second base maintained at Tivat Airport.  The airline was liquidated on 26 December 2020 due to accumulating heavy losses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In February 2021, the government of Montenegro launched a new flag carrier, Air Montenegro.

Montenegro Marketing & SEO

I have actually reached out to the CEO of Montegroairlines.com as his website has security issues, I guess it must be with an SSL Certificate. He is losing money hand over fist as most people will not click the link to be forwarded to his website if it has errors. I will be offering my marketing services.

Although Montenegro Airlines ceased trading it would have made sense to forward the domain name to Air Montenegro | Home to drive traffic from the old site to the new.

So the name has now changed to Air Montenegro. One thing I have noticed not everyone can spell ‘Montenegro’, me being one of them, having to go back and correct my spelling error, therefore it makes sense to just have a one-word keyword domain name, saving having to spell ‘Montenegro’.

When it comes to marketing in foreign countries that may not speak English, it makes sense to hire an English-speaking marketing or consultancy firm.
