Social Media as a business platform in 2021?

Published

on

In 2020 one thing that has been proven is that having a regular 9-5 is not good enough to have a happy and sustainable lifestyle. So what is the right path to take in 2021 to secure your future?

Starting a Business

The only true way to “secure” your future is to be the person that’s building it. You can’t expect to be in control of your own future if you are not in control of your life, and the only way to do so is to be your own boss!

Starting your own business, becoming an Entrepreneur, more and more seems like the ONLY right way to generate income! Yes, it is hard, and yeah you will fail many times, but you are the one in control! If you want to earn more, that is up to you, if you need a 2 month break that is up to you!

Types of Businesses

Through my career as an entrepreneur I have seen 3 main business models!

1) Health/Fitness
Maybe you are an expert in certain topics on health or fitness, or maybe you are just a health/fitness enthusiast, but believe it or not no matter which one of the two you are, you can build a sustainable and successful business! I have seen online fitness trainers making anywhere between 6 to 8 figures, these people can either run their own programs on their time, while making. 6-8 figures OR they can work for a gym and make 30k/year. That is up to them and it is up to you.

2) Products/Services
Do you have a passion for making jewelry or T-Shirts, or do you absolutely love running ads on Facebook and YouTube? Why not turn that into a career? Instead of working at your regular 9-5 job, you can spend your days designing your product and posting it online so that other people who enjoy it can purchase it for themselves, or maybe you can use your passion for something to provide services to someone who needs a person just like you! If you ask me this sounds much better than mopping the floor or lifting boxes and making sandwiches for a big corporation!

3) Coaching/Mentoring
What if you are an expert in a certain field, or you know something that not many others do? Do you know that there are people out there who would pay for you to teach them? You can share your knowledge with the world and get paid for knowing something that you love. There are tons of people making great money making courses, holding online classes or mentoring others to do what they love, and you can do the same!

Social Media?

Now you may be thinking to yourself: “I know how to cook, but how do I find people who are interested in learning from me?” or “Oh man, I have been making butterfly rings for ages, how do I actually find people who would pay for them?”

So I know that you have by now heard of these social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, but how is that of any use to you if you are just wanting to start your business?

Did you know that there are approximately 500 million users on Instagram alone EVERY SINGLE DAY.
So why should you be on social media as a business owner? Because you have a huge audience to expose your business to. It’s not the people’s responsibility to see you, it is your responsibility to make sure that you present yourself to them, and there is no easier way to do it then going on to the most populated platforms in the world like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok!

Where Stirling Cooper Gets His Motivation To Help Other Men With Their Intimacy Problems

Published

on

Now and then, people admit that they need help in several areas of their lives. And in today’s society, there’s no shame in asking for assistance from others who are well-equipped in dealing with challenges that befall almost everyone. 

Stirling Cooper, a men’s sexual mastery coach, is one person who offers his knowledge and help to men who are experiencing some form of insecurity in the bedroom, be that due to inexperience or a bad experience.

People Seeking Him Out 

Before Stirling got into the business of helping other men find confidence in the bedroom, he worked as an adult film star and has been in the industry since 2004. He has had the opportunity to work for the largest adult film websites across the USA, UK, Australia, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. 

“Being from a country that has a tiny adult industry was the first major hurdle, I had to network my way to bigger and bigger industries around the world, letting my work speak for myself,” he said. 

Eventually, men have been throwing him some questions on how they can improve their performance or find their confidence in the bedroom. 

“I had so many men reaching out to me asking me for advice on overcoming issues like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, performance anxiety that I decided to start putting out content to help and it blew up from there,” he said.

Stirling has helped thousands of men face their intimacy problems and ultimately boost their self-esteem. Aside from teaching them ways to overcome their problems, he also advises men to find a way to take responsibility for everything in their life so they can take control and improve it accordingly.

Presently, the men’s sexual mastery coach is focused on growing his YouTube account, growing his audience, and helping more men across the world. 

Using Experience To Serve Others 

Part of what makes Stirling effective as a coach is his personal experience with intimacy. This allowed him to help the men in need of coaching when it comes to intimacy. 

“Nobody has the real-world experience I do and nobody knows how to teach as well as I do. The results of my clients speak for my ability to help any man become a master in the bedroom,” Stirling said. 

He added that his ability to step into other people’s shoes, see the world through their eyes and experience allows him to relate to them and make it easier to teach them in a way they understand and can relate to.

Published

on

Jeremiah Evans, 25, is the founder of an investment firm called Alpha Influence. Through his firm, he has generated over $20,000,000 in sales and helped numerous people improve their lives and financial status. 

“I live my life by a code which is ‘Be Great or Be Nothing.’ I refuse to live a life settling for average results. I chose my career so I could become someone who would have a real influence on this world,” Jeremiah said.

Whenever someone approaches him or is willing to listen to what he has to say, Jeremiah goes above and beyond to provide them with the solution so they too can achieve greatness. 

The Skillset That Made It Happen 

Generating over $20,000,000 in sales is no easy feat for an investment firm, let alone an individual. But Jeremiah made it possible because he knows what he’s capable of and how far he can go if he leveraged his skills properly. 

“I am a master at sales and closing. This skillet slows me to take more risks because I know I can always rely on this skill set to make money no matter what happens,” Jeremiah said. 

Jeremiah is also known as “The Bull” for his bull mentality. In investment, a bull pertains to an investor who thinks the market is poised to rise. And for Jeremiah, through proper investments and the right strategies, there’s nowhere to go but up. 

Catering To Different Needs 

Although Jeremiah has achieved financial success through his investment firm, Alpha Influence has a more profound purpose of helping others improve their incomes and, ultimately, their lives. 

To do this, Jeremiah designed the firm to cater to the different needs of his clients. Presently, there are three programs that they can apply to, depending on what they need. 

First is the Financial Program. In this program, Jeremiah and his team will help clients establish a business, increase their credit score, and guide them on how to leverage other people’s money, thus allowing them to scale any business.

Next is the Automation. Here, clients can opt to own an Amazon store leveraged by the Alpha Influence team’s years of experience on the Amazon platform. 

Lastly, there’s the Wealth program. Clients who sign up for this will learn from Jeremia the methods used by millionaires and billionaires to generate and grow life-changing wealth. Jeremiah’s current mission is to help others create the same success using a method called “The Tri-Force of Wealth.” 

Presently, he has over 1,000 clients, with more than 100 students who earn six figures and multiple students who earn seven figures.

Leading global thought leader and founder of award-winning app and software development firm Elegant Media, Anushka Bandara, warns of the tactics phone scammers use to get your number

Published

on

According to Anushka Bandara, co-founder and CEO of Elegant Media, people all over the world, are experiencing a sharp increase in the number of scam calls they are receiving on their phones.

“We are receiving feedback from a lot of people that they are receiving recorded scam calls on their phone from people pretending to be from key government authorities,” Bandara said.

“While most people know to hang up immediately, unfortunately some don’t – especially the elderly who are being fleeced of lots of money.

“Even if your number is on the Do Not Call Register, scammers still finding ways to get your number and call you.

“The Do Not Call Register will work for organisations that follow the rules, but sadly scammers don’t.”

Bandara explains how your phone number ends up in the hands of unethical callers.

“Every day we are engaging with businesses and organisations that capture our personal details, even apps,” Bandara said.

Most telemarketers purchase phone numbers from third party data providers however scammers use different methods and often they call from overseas.

“It is important to understand a few basics.  Nearly all mobile phones have display screens that show the Calling Line Identification (CLI)  which allows you to see the telephone number of the person calling,” Bandara said.

“A process called CLI overstamping allows the caller to display a different number to that of the number from which they are calling.   For example in Australia, Australian businesses with overseas call centres often use this tactic to make their customers think they are calling from Australia.

“Another tactic called ID spoofing enables the scammer to disguise their number by displaying an Australian number.  These tactics can lull people into a false sense of security and they answer the call.”

The question is how do they get your number and what should you do once they call.  Generally they use two methods, robocalls and number theft.

Hack databases

“Scammers usually use unscrupulous methods to get phone numbers.  A common approach is to hack business websites to access their customer information.  The increasing number of businesses operating online provides scammers with a huge ocean of opportunity,” Bandara added.

“Most businesses don’t even know they have been hacked, which makes the situation even worse.”

Trade data

“Scammers often trade information with other scammers to share data.  Sometimes they will purchase it for a small amount of money,” Bandara said.

Apps and games

“Scammers also create apps and games and share these for free in order to capture personal information,” Bandara explained.

“It is very important to do your homework before you sign up to any online activities as there is no such thing as free.”

Public wifi

“If you use public wifi or other systems that are not as secure as they could be, you are opening yourself up to risk.  Scammers can intercept information and your personal details using these facilities,” Bandara added.

Surveys and competitions

“Every time you enter an online competition, complete an online survey or send your warranty information online, you are submitting your personal details to someone,” Bandara added.

Robocalls

“Computer generated random number calling is a thing and scammers with the technology capabilities are able to implement this strategy and call thousands of numbers over a short period of time,” Bandara said.

According to Bandara, while more needs to be done by governments across the world to cut off scammers from the source through implementation of clever technology that attaches real identities to each caller number and then validates enabling the call, until this happens, every individual will need to be super vigilant.

“Don’t answer a call from a number you do not know.  If you get a call from a spammer, hang up and block the number,” Bandara emphasised.

“Every country has its own cyber crime reporting centre.  In addition, report the number to your service provider.

“Think more carefully about who you give your information to and where it might go.”

Elegant Media is a full-service mobile app development and software solutions provider for businesses, government and entrepreneurs.
