What Is Steemit and Why Should You Care?

February 10, 2018 // 2 Comments

Steemit is a new and fast-growing blogging platform launched in March 2016. It had some hiccups along the way and some opposition, but all-in-all it built the traction which led to an exponential growth in users and activity. Steemit has the advantage of being built on the revolutionary technology called blockchain. You may or may not know what a blockchain really is, like it or not, but trust me when I say it will be one of the technologies that will reshape the future (along with AI). Steemit is built on the STEEM blockchain, and, as I mentioned before, it is a blogging platform. On the same blockchain there are however other sites that are oriented toward different areas: video live broadcasting social media (Instagram style) forums memes more Which makes the STEEM blockchain suitable for different types of content. Now, let’s get back to Steemit. If you are in online business, at some point you want to monetize your social media account, your blog, your video channel etc. Until now that only worked by placing ads on your blog, or being compensating for promoting a certain product to your audience (mostly if you have an engaged and sizable audience). With Steemit (and other sites on the STEEM blockchain), things are different. Everyone earns, even if you have zero audience. Why? Because good comments and replies get upvotes, and those translate into money. Of course, if you write great content, build a following and relationships, you will earn more, because authors earn a good share for their contribution. Interestingly, you don’t get hundred of spam comments, because spammers quickly get downvoted until their reputation becomes so low that they are no longer showed by the system. Another important distinction: since all the sites using the same blockchain, the same information […]

Keep Learning to Stay Relevant!

February 2, 2018 // 0 Comments

Most graduates live under the impression that once they completed the classic form of education, they will never have to study again. But that assumption is wrong from at least three reasons: we live in a time and age when a certain craft they’ve prepared for in school will not last a lifetime, so they will probably come to a point in their lives when they’ll be forced to change it and need training for the new craft school systems are renowned for being slow to adapt, so what they learned in school may need an update before actually being used at the workplace changes and new developments have accelerated so much that we continuously need to refresh what we know, learn new things and adapt. Jim Rohn’s famously said: Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune. Jim Rohn Of course it’s been a while since he said that. Right now, without continuous learning we won’t stay relevant for long even to make a living. But the emphasis is on self-education, which can make you rich. And Jim Rohn insisted on this idea immensely. Now, here’s a quote that remains completely relevant after almost 2 and a half millennia. It’s from Socrates, who said (and “said” is correct, because he never left anything written): I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think. Socrates You’ll find the same idea reiterated by other great thinkers like Galileo Galilei or Albert Einstein. Socrates “taught” by engaging in debates. Anywhere and with anyone, with ordinary or educated people. In a way he lived (and died) by this quote. Let’s end the quoting series with one from Henry Ford. After all, he was a pioneer of an era, not the one we live in now, but […]

TE ListBuilder Review

TE ListBuilder (formerly tePays) Review

November 4, 2017 // 6 Comments

In April 2016, a week after its launch I wrote a review for tePays. Now, one and a half years later and also about a week after relaunch, I renew my review on the updated tePays, now rebranded as TE List Builder. A Few Words About TEPays tePays was a pioneer in the traffic exchanges niche to implement an automated list building system while you referred people to the site. Its support for AWeber, Rocket Responder and TrafficWave autoresponders is still relatively wide for people involved in this niche, but there is information the owners are looking into the possibility to integrate GetResponse as well into TE ListBuilder. You could also have built your downlines in a few selected traffic exchanges and additional resources using tePays, as well as were offered 2 e-books, and, with the right upgrade, the possibility to re-brand them. All that is still here in the new version. The Logical Step Toward TE ListBuilder I write this second review knowing that tePays was very high in the top of the sites that paid me the most commissions since its launch, but also that this trend had slowed down significantly in the recent months. When a good site with good owners is launched it creates a hype of course. But if there is not much reason to return to the site, once everything is set up, the traction is soon lost because people will simply find other interests. I think in the revamped TE ListBuilder, owners Blain Jones and Shane Bost added value while at the same time focusing on ways to improve the engagement of members with the site and especially with each other. The new tasks, teams, internal messages and basic blogging functionalities will probably do just that. Members of ClickTrackProfit may find many of […]
