Tweet 800,000 sponsored messages on MyLikes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What it is:Tweet out sponsored messages and get paid a few cents every time one of your followers clicks on the ad.

Average cost per click: Cost per click is different for every user based on a calculated MyLikes Engagement Score. The score is determined by the user’s activity on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Over time, the score changes based on how many clicks the user generates per sponsored tweet.MyLikes tells us for a person with a few thousand followers, the average earning per click is between $0.10-$0.25. If you have 100,000+ followers, you can earn up to $1 per click.

For the sake of this scenario, we’ll put the average CPC at $0.25.

Profits you keep: 100%

Million-dollar math: $0.25 X 4,000,000 clicks = $1,000,000. If 5 people click every sponsored tweet, you’re looking at 800,000 tweets.

Who did it: Some of MyLikes’ celebrity tweeters, like Snooki and Khloe Kardashian, have made $40,000 per month on MyLikes. At that rate, it wouldn’t take long to hit $1 million.

 

Complete 3,225,807 HITS on Mechanical Turk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What it is: Sign up to do freelance workat costs often below minimum wage.

Average cost per gig: In 2009, NYU professor Panagiotis Ipeirotis tracked all MTurk HITS (Human Intelligence Tasks) for two months and found the average value of HITS posted per day was $2,000. Most people, he estimated, use the site one day per week and earn about $20.

But most of the recent HITS we found only pay a few cents per completed task. Businessweek tried out the service for seven hours one day, completing about 15 jobs, and making just $0.63 per hour. That comes out to $0.31 cents per HIT. We’ll use $0.31 cents/HIT for our calculation.

Profits you keep: 90% — Amazon takes 10% commission of every final HIT payment with a minimum fee of half a cent.

Million-dollar math: $0.31 X 3,225,807 HITS = $1,000,000.17

Who did it: We hope no one. It sounds grueling.

 

Rent your apartment for 10,520 nights

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What it is: Rent a room in your apartment to a stranger for an amount and length of your choosing.

Average cost per rental: Hosts can charge renters whatever rate they want per night. Costs depend a lot on the host’s location though. AirBNB has a rate recommendation widget based on the host’s location.

When we typed in “Private Bedroom in NYC” it recommended we charge $98 per night. Even though NYC rates are higher than many other cities, we’ll use the $98 estimate for our calculation.

Profits you keep: 97% of the total rent cost.

Million-dollar math: For every $98/night rental, you keep $95.06. $95.06 X 10,520 nights = $1,000,031.20

Who did it: If no one has done it yet, a few AirBNB users are well on their way. Daren from London says he has made $100,000 via AirBNB. Jeff from Paris says he’s made $90,000.

Cofounder Brian Chesky also decided to go homeless everyday for a few months, so he probably made some good money using his service during that time.

Cost per pixel:$1

Profits you keep:100%

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.

Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Podcast, Youtube Channel or Online Show

Avatar

why you should have a podcast

Confidence comes from a place of strong understanding of self. After close to three years on radio, I’ve grown from a shy introvert to a shy introvert with an extrovert persona. When the mic is turned on, I can channel a version of myself that some say is attractive, strong, and of course, confident but it wasn’t always this way.

What I want to share with you is what I discovered on this journey into broadcast that you can apply to your life, your ventures, and your personal development. This doesn’t require any fancy gear. It does require a leap of faith on your part because once you go down the road of media; it can change your life.

1. Perceived Expertise

When you go to a doctor, you expect their knowledge will guide them to a solution to your problems. When you have a show, you become your listeners’ doctor. For all the multiple thousands, maybe millions, of YouTube channels, podcasts, and user-created content in the world, each person that gets behind a mic takes a position on their passion, their opinions, and their themes.

They challenge the status quo for the benefit of their listeners in hopes to entertain and educate. With consistency on your side, those fans place you on a platform and give you permission to influence them.

2. Global Acknowledgement

One of the benefits to increasing confidence is when you receive thank you notes from people you may never meet. The feeling of enriching someone’s life from halfway around the globe, provides validation you’re enhancing someone else’s life with your wisdom and your wit.

The very first time I was told I was making a difference in someone’s life in a country other than my own, I felt like I caused massive impact that transcends my circle of influence. When you experience just how much you can cause impact and it comes back to you, it’ll change your worldview.

“Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Backed By Numbers

One of the most exciting ways to measure success is to quantify your growth. It’s not enough to just broadcast. Having subscribers and downloads helps to know, numerically, how well you’re doing. Word of caution. This can be a way to set yourself up for distress because of number envy but if you understand what the numbers mean; you can control the narrative of the numbers.

The major number that makes most people smile is 10,000. I’d advise it to be 1. Here’s why. As you grow in your industry, so does your reach. If you learned that the one person that subscribed totally changed for the better because of you, wouldn’t that be worth the effort?

4. Effective Communication

While it’s not talked about much, having a show is documentation. You create a dynamic account of your life, your industry, and the pulse on what’s important simply by having a show. When you find a channel to improve your communication skills, you demand attention and people will listen to you. You become more trusted as a leader and people will follow you once they believe you can lead them to their wants and needs.

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

These insights have helped many people become leaders and, ultimately, move others to their best selves. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about showing up and showing out.
