Marketing Technique – Bussiness

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Marketing

Here is five marketing topics to succeed

1. Social Media

According to Pew Research Center, 79% of adult use Facebook . But knowing how to use Facebook in general isn’t equal to knowing how to use it for business. Same goes for every other social media network you are already using, be it Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram.

Social media can be a great promotional tool if used right. The statistics provided by Ambassador show that 71% of the consumers who have had a positive service experience with a brand would recommend it to others on social media. But it doesn’t end there.

Social media can also generate referral traffic and improve search engine rankings. Publishing good content and presenting it right on social media enhances a brand’s visibility online. You can also use it for networking with clients which helps to improve your reputation, increase customer loyalty, and so on.

That’s why it’s so important for students and recent graduates to start exploring social media from a business point of view. One of the best and simplest ways to start doing so is by studying how to create a social media strategy and explore examples of successful marketing campaigns - after all, learning by practice is always useful.

2. Blogging

While blogging is a big part of content marketing (more on that below), there’s a reason why marketing students should pay special attention to it. These days, blogging can be successfully used for many things, for example:

  • You can build a career from your own blog
  • Run one for a business to raise brand awareness and attract leads, or
  • Use blogging to promote your goods and services on other sites.

Even if you are a person with a goal to start your own business, you should still consider adding a blog to your website. Based on research provided by TechClient, websites with blogs tend to have 434% more indexed pages while companies that blog have 97% inbound links.

Of course, not every blog can achieve such impressive results. In order to succeed, you need to choose the right niche and be experienced enough in writing and research to provide new and fresh information on the topics your cover. You also need to know how to promote your blog on social media and how to do blogger outreach. Most importantly, you need to learn how to create compelling posts that attract readers and hold their attention until the very end.

While universities do encourage writing by giving students various assignments and asking them to come up with topics for argumentative essays, this type of writing differs from blogging.

It’s possible to try blogging long before graduation, learning everything by practice. Set up a personal one or ask if someone you know needs content written for them. Another good option to grasp the essential aspects of creating good content is to work for an essay writing service company and write blog articles for their clients. This way you will learn how to do research and create content that corresponds to the needs of a specific target audience.

3. Content marketing

The importance of content marketing cannot be undervalued. According to a 2016 study by Curata, 74% of the companies claim that content marketing helps them increase their marketing teams’ lead quality and quantity.

53% of marketers say blog content creation is their top inbound marketing priority.

It isn’t surprising. With people being so overwhelmed with data and content these days, it’s important to always try to offer something new, fresh, and truly valuable to them. And this means not only writing great content but also making it as engaging as possible.

That’s why a content marketing strategy doesn’t end with blogging only – it also includes video creation, design (infographics, for example), email writing, and so on. There are plenty of channels and areas which good marketers need to acknowledge in order to integrate them into content strategies in the most effective way.

While it’s possible to promote a brand with the help of written content exclusively, a great marketer has to think bigger than that. They need to use various content types and have enough technical knowledge in order to use a variety of digital tools.

Moreover, content marketing isn’t only about creating content – it is also about setting the right goals that align with business objectives, analyzing data, monitoring trends and developing your own ones, and much more. Luckily for students, this marketing topic can be mastered online as well.For example, there are plenty of content marketing guides on Content Marketing Institute and HubSpot that are pretty detailed and allow to understand the basics pretty quickly.

5. Search engine optimization (SEO)

 SEO leads have a 14.6% close rate while outbound leads have a 1.7% close rate. However, far from many are satisfied with the number of leads generated organically.

Only about 22% of businesses are satisfied with their conversion rates.

Every website and blog still needs to be well optimized in order to succeed. The tricky part here is that SEO is a long game and strategies change quickly – and so, while universities might pay attention to the topic, the information they provide can be a bit outdated.

For example, a couple of years ago writers stuffed articles with as many keywords as possible in the hope to improve search engine rankings. These days there’s no need to spam your copy with keywords – while there should still be a good mix, they need to fit in naturally and include variations.

While students and fresh graduates may struggle with SEO without practice, they can still master the basics very quickly using resources available on the Internet. There is an abundance of blogs and case studies that can be just as effective as online courses. One of the best digital marketing blogs, Noos.in Blog is a great place to start learning about keywords and optimizing content for search.

5. Tribal Marketing

Analysis of social media interactions also makes tribal marketing easier and more precise by locating groups with tastes and needs in common on, say, Twitter . Once tribes with a strong affinity for a product category have been identified, a brand can build connections with leaders — for example, by inviting them to events or sending them exclusive product previews and samples. Influential leaders’ posts about the latest products or services may generate interest in the brand among community members. Such marketing techniques complement mass advertising campaigns with paid influences like celebrities and key opinion leaders. In the apparel industry, we have seen tribal marketing combined with social listening generate a return on marketing spend significantly higher — by 20% to 50% — than traditional advertising.

By tracking and measuring the connections among a group of new mothers, for example, marketers can map their tribe and identify the leaders who are best connected with the other mothers. By engaging with group leaders, a manufacturer can better understand their lifestyles and tastes, perhaps sparking their interest by sharing other products and services, such as gym classes for new mothers.

HOW TO START SHARE MARKET

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marketing, STRATEGY

DETAILED STOCK MARKET GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS

We all understand that a share in market parlance is part ownership in a company. So if a company has issued 100 shares and you own 1 share then you own 1% stake in the company. The big question is how to invest in shares and how to invest in the share market? Let us also grasp what is stock market, how to invest in share market and how to buy shares in India. Let us also look at equity markets and how to buy shares in Indian equity market.

What is the Stock Market and is it Different from the Share Market?

stock market is a gathering of buyers and sellers of stocks in a single platform. Before BOLT was introduced in 1995, people used to trade standing in the trading ring. Nowadays, all trading happens on computer terminals at a broker’s office or through the internet. Share market and stock market is one and the same thing.

Share Market Basics

Share Market Basics

Before starting to invest in stocks, it is important to learn about what the share market is and how it works. It is where shares of different companies are traded. In India, there are two primary exchanges; the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
Investment is a key to your safe and secured future. However, to overcome the impact of inflation, investments in plain old financial instruments does not seem to be adequate. To get something extra out of your investments, Share market offers the lucrative opportunity of purchase and trade of securities such as stocks and options..

What is the Difference Between Primary Markets and Secondary Markets?

When a company comes out with an initial public offer (IPO) it is called the primary market. The normal purpose of an IPO is to list the stock in the share market. Once the share gets listed it starts trading in the secondary market.  Buying and selling shares is largely like buying and selling any other commodity.

What is Offline Trading and What is Online Trading?

How to purchase shares offline and how to purchase shares online? Online trading is all about buying and selling shares on the internet sitting in the comfort of your office or your home. You just need to log into your trading account and you can buy and sell shares. Offline trading is trading by visiting your broker’s office or by telephoning your broker.

What is the Role of a Broker in the Share Market?

The broker helps you execute your buy and sell trades. Brokers typically help buyers find sellers and sellers find buyers. Most brokers will also advise you on what stocks to buy, what stocks to sell and how to invest money in share markets for beginners. They will also assist you in how to trade in stock market. For that service, the broker is paid brokerage.

Can Anybody Buy and Sell Shares in the Share Market?

Any person who is competent to enter into a contract can buy and sell shares in the market. You need to open a trading account with a broker and you can buy and sell shares in the stock market after the trading account is opened?

Is the Trading Account Same as the Demat Account?

There is an important difference between the two. Trading account is where you execute your buy and sell trades. The demat account is where your shares are held in custody. When you buy shares in your trading account, your bank account gets debited and your demat account get credited. The reverse is true when you sell shares.

What is Meant by Trading and Investment?

The fundamental difference is that trading refers to short term buying and selling of shares whereas investment refers to long term buying of shares. A trader normally tries to churn the money rapidly whereas the investor tries to buy a good stock in the sharemarket and waits for the stock price to appreciate.

What is SEBI?

SEBI refers to Securities and Exchange Board of India. Because the bourses have inherent risks, a market regulator is required. The SEBI is provided with this power and has the responsibility of developing as well as regulating the markets. The basic objectives include protecting investor interest, developing the share market, and regulating it’s working.

What is fundamental and technical analysis?

Fundamental analysis is about understanding the business of the company, its growth prospects, its profitability, its debt etc.Technical analysis focuses more on charts and patterns and tries to find out past patterns to apply for the future. Fundamentals are used more by investors while technicals are used more by traders.

How to Invest with Little Money in India in the Share Market?

There is no minimum investment required as you can even buy 1 share of a company. So if you buy a stock with a market price of Rs.100/- and you just buy 1 share then you just need to invest Rs.100. Of course, brokerage and statutory charges will be extra.

How to Online Setup Own Store

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marketing, STRATEGY

1. Building Online Stores

2. Run Regular Promotions

3. Increase Sales through Social Media

4. Partner with Other Businesses

5. Offer Free Trials or Demonstrations

6. Stand Out More Technique

Building Online Stores

Build your own website or blog site of your store and apply the technique listed below

With search results becoming more robust and interactive, your Google My Business profile (which is a completely free listing) is more important than ever for reaching new customers on Google. Your Google My Business profile is the result that shows up in Google Maps, the local section of Google Search, and the Google Knowledge Panel on the right-hand side of results pages. When you optimize your profile to show up for relevant searches, you boost your exposure to the right audience and increase the chances of making a sale.

Fill Out Every Section

Complete Google My Business listings are 50% more likely to lead to a purchase. Make sure you don’t just complete the bare minimum such as name, address, phone number, and website. Fill out every field of your profile. The more information you supply, the better it will perform on search, the more confident customers can be in choosing your business, and the more you will stand out above competitors.

Get Google Reviews

One of the best ways to increase sales for your business is to increase the number of positive reviews you have on Google. Consumers trust what other customers have to say, and often use reviews as a deciding factor on choosing a business. In addition, reviews can help you achieve a star rating next to your search result on Google, further helping you to increase customers and sales.

Seed Your Q&A Section

Uncertainty creates a barrier to entry for sales. With the Google Q&A feature, anyone can ask and anyone can answer any question about any business. This means that you can preemptively ask and answer questions about your own business on your Google My Business listing. Giving customers a clearer picture of what to expect and answering common questions and concerns helps to increase their chances of engaging with you which can help to increase sales.

These are just a few of the many ways you can improve your Google My Business profile to start increasing sales for your business.

Run Regular Promotions

Your existing customers should be the first priority when attempting to boost sales. They’ve already shown a willingness to give you money in exchange for products or services, which shows that they trust you. If you did an excellent job when serving them, then they should be primed to do more business with you.

Sales and marketing promotions are a great way to reward your current customers and increase sales. Whether you hold them once a month, once a quarter, or whatever makes sense for you, you want it to be regular.

Once you establish a rhythm with them, clients will start to look forward to them. The more they anticipate interacting with you in the future, the better. Plus, they can let others know about your promotions in advance. These referrals should lead to a larger customer base.

Pay Attention to Existing Customer Behavior

When possible, study how your customers use and interact with your products and services. Perhaps they rely heavily on one particular feature or struggle with one aspect of your product. If so, this could be a great place to offer an upgrade.

Another approach for this is to deliver more personalized service or training. You shouldn’t really see this as an upsell. Instead, think of it as extending or enriching your relationship with them. You don’t want to be forceful here. Just be sure that they know what you offer because they could be unaware.

Ask for Feedback

Especially on what your offerings lack. Is there a specific problem that you could help them with?

For example, a printing company might do an excellent job printing promotional brochures that clients mail out to generate business. A client who wants to automate the process even more could be interested in having the envelopes printed and addressed. They may even like to have the printing company handle the mailing itself.

If you can provide a broader range of services for your current clients, you become even more essential to their business. That means more sales and a stronger relationship.

Increase Sales through Social Media

As social media platforms continue to expand and multiply, they provide new avenues for reaching and nurturing your audience. Ultimately, that can lead to more sales.

Use Social Media Advertising

Most social media sites know a lot about their users. A lot. You can use that data to help get your message in front of the right eyes with laser precision. If you haven’t already, you’ll want to build a social media marketing campaign and start to test.

Unsure about social media advertising? Check out the pros and cons here.

Build Community and Generate Word of Mouth

Not all social experiences need to be transactional though. Instead, you can look at sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as watering holes for your current or potential clients.

By meeting them where they already hang out, you can find a place in their lives that doesn’t feel as “salesy.” Use social media to help your clients solve problems. They will begin to regard you as the expert and come to your with similar issues in the future. They’ll also tell their friends, and both can increase your bottom line.

Promote Your Deals on Social Media

While not everyone on social media is looking to buy (not when there are so many cat videos to watch), it can be an efficient way to use promotions. Giveaways or special deals are more likely to grab your audience’s attention, which can lead to more sales.

Make Sure Your Profiles are Optimized

Think of your social media profile as a mini website for your business. It should clearly convey who you are, what you do, nd what values you stand for. Since you might not be on their radar for long, make sure you immediately resonate and connect with your ideal customer.

Be sure to treat every social media platform as an individual site too. Your audiences for each will be different, so your profiles should all be optimized according to your goals for the site.

Partner with Other Businesses

Make connections with other providers in your industry. At the very least, you can refer business to one another, but you might also find ways to partner to offer unique package deals to your customers.

A restoration company, for example, could benefit from having a solid relationship with roofers and plumbers. If you’re in the business of replacing and repairing flooded carpets, you’ll get more sales by knowing the people who are first on the scene to fix the initial cause of the leak.

Offer Free Trials or Demonstrations

One of the most common objections (especially for an ongoing service or software subscription) is, “But will this work for me?” While you should try to address that in your copy, the easiest way to demonstrate the value of your service is to let customers see it for themselves.

A free trial or walkthrough demonstration shows customers exactly how much time or money they could save from your offering. You’ll want to also provide excellent customer service and training in the trial period to ensure that they use your product and that they get the most out of it.

Put a Call to Action on Your Homepage

We know that a CTA is essential for conversions on a landing page or product description. They can also be effective on your homepage because they help direct your visitor. Think about the one thing you want a visitor to your homepage to do. Call you? Fill out an inquiry form? Join your email list? Whatever the answer, make it clear on the homepage with a CTA that stands out.

Each of the tips above should help increase sales for your business, but don’t be overwhelmed by the list. Rather than trying to implement everything at once, choose one or two areas to improve on now. Once you start to see results, move on to another tip and watch your sales figures grow.

Stand Out More Technique

In addition to these three major areas, you can also improve your sales figures by trying some (or all) of the tips below.

Nurture Leads

Often, the journey is not straight from ad to sale. Instead, you find prospects and lead them along a path that eventually ends with them choosing your product or service. One of the most effective ways to nurture them through this process is email marketing.

Once you have a prospect’s email, you should keep in touch with them through an automated campaign. This helps you show them that you understand their problems and can provide a solution. For more tips, head to How to Follow Up With Your Sales Leads.

Promote Your Deals on Social Media

While not everyone on social media is looking to buy (not when there are so many cat videos to watch), it can be an efficient way to use promotions. Giveaways or special deals are more likely to grab your audience’s attention, which can lead to more sales.

Brush Up on Your Sales Skills

Advertising and outreach can bring in more leads and transform them from cold to warm to hot. When it comes time for conversion, however, you still have to sell to your clients.

You’ve done all the work to get them ready to buy, but that isn’t the finish line. Revisit the sales essentials to make sure you don’t lose prospects in the final stages of the process.

Bollinger Band : Indicator

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marketing

What Is a Bollinger Band ? how to use this indicator ?

A Bollinger Band® is a technical analysis tool defined by a set of trendlines plotted two standard deviations (positively and negatively) away from a simple moving average (SMA) of a security’s price, but which can be adjusted to user preferences.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Bollinger Bands® are a technical analysis tool developed by John Bollinger for generating oversold or overbought signals.
  • There are three lines that compose Bollinger Bands: A simple moving average (middle band) and an upper and lower band.
  • The upper and lower bands are typically 2 standard deviations +/- fro

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Bollinger Bands® are a technical analysis tool developed by John Bollinger for generating oversold or overbought signals.
  • There are three lines that compose Bollinger Bands: A simple moving average (middle band) and an upper and lower band.
  • The upper and lower bands are typically 2 standard deviations +/- fro 20-day simple moving average, but can be modified

How To Calculate Bollinger Bands®

The first step in calculating Bollinger Bands® is to compute the simple moving average of the security in question, typically using a 20-day SMA. A 20-day moving average would average out the closing prices for the first 20 days as the first data point. The next data point would drop the earliest price, add the price on day 21 and take the average, and so on. Next, the standard deviation of the security’s price will be obtained. Standard deviation is a mathematical measurement of average variance and features prominently in statistics, economics, accounting and finance.

For a given data set, the standard deviation measures how spread out numbers are from an average value. Standard deviation can be calculated by taking the square root of the variance, which itself is the average of the squared differences of the mean. Next, multiply that standard deviation value by two and both add and subtract that amount from each point along the SMA. Those produce the upper and lower bands.

Here is this Bollinger Band® formula:

BOLU = MA(TP,n)+mσ[TP,n]

BOLD = MA(TP,n) − mσ[TP,n]

where:

BOLU=Upper Bollinger Band

BOLD=Lower Bollinger Band

MA = Moving Average

What Do Bollinger Bands® Tell You?

Bollinger Bands® are a highly popular technique. Many traders believe the closer the prices move to the upper band, the more overbought the market, and the closer the prices move to the lower band, the more oversold the market. John Bollinger has a set of 22 rules to follow when using the bands as a trading system.

In the chart depicted below, Bollinger Bands® bracket the 20-day SMA of the stock with an upper and lower band along with the daily movements of the stock’s price. Because standard deviation is a measure of volatility, when the markets become more volatile the bands widen; during less volatile periods, the bands contract.

TradingView.

The Squeeze

The squeeze is the central concept of Bollinger Bands®. When the bands come close together, constricting the moving average, it is called a squeeze. A squeeze signals a period of low volatility and is considered by traders to be a potential sign of future increased volatility and possible trading opportunities. Conversely, the wider apart the bands move, the more likely the chance of a decrease in volatility and the greater the possibility of exiting a trade. However, these conditions are not trading signals. The bands give no indication when the change may take place or which direction price could move.

Breakouts

Approximately 90% of price action occurs between the two bands. Any breakout above or below the bands is a major event. The breakout is not a trading signal. The mistake most people make is believing that that price hitting or exceeding one of the bands is a signal to buy or sell. Breakouts provide no clue as to the direction and extent of future price movement.

Limitations of Bollinger Bands®

Bollinger Bands® are not a standalone trading system. They are simply one indicator designed to provide traders with information regarding price volatility. John Bollinger suggests using them with two or three other non-correlated indicators that provide more direct market signals. He believes it is crucial to use indicators based on different types of data. Some of his favored technical techniques are moving average divergence/convergence (MACD), on-balance volume and relative strength index (RSI).

Because they are computed from a simple moving average, they weight older price data the same as the most recent, meaning that new information may be diluted by outdated data. Also, the use of 20-day SMA and 2 standard deviations is a bit arbitrary and may not work for everyone in every situation. Traders should adjust their SMA and standard deviation assumptions accordingly and monitor them.

Do you know what is Indicator ? how to use !

Trend traders attempt to isolate and extract profit from trends. The method of trend trading tries to capture gains through the analysis of an asset’s momentum in a particular direction; there are multiple ways to do this. Of course, no single technical indicator will punch your ticket to market riches; in addition to analysis, traders also need to be well-versed in risk management and trading psychology. But certain strategies have stood the test of time and remain popular tools for trend traders who are interested in analyzing certain market indicators.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Trend trading attempts to capture gains through the analysis of an asset’s momentum in a particular direction.
  • While no single technical indicator will punch your ticket to market riches, certain strategies have stood the test of time and remain popular tools for trend traders.
  • Moving average is a technical analysis tool that smooths out price data by creating a constantly updated average price.
  • The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a kind of oscillating indicator that can help traders quickly spot increasing short-term momentum.
  • The relative strength index (RSI) is a momentum indicator that measures the magnitude of recent price changes to evaluate overbought or oversold conditions in the price of a stock.
  • The on-balance volume (OBV) indicator measures cumulative buying and selling pressure by adding the volume on “up” days and subtracting volume on “down” days.

Moving average is a technical analysis tool that smooths out price data by creating a constantly updated average price. On a price chart, a moving average creates a single, flat line that effectively eliminates any variations due to random price fluctuations.

The average is taken over a specific period of time–10 days, 20 minutes, 30 weeks, or any time period the trader chooses. For investors and long-term trend followers, the 200-day, 100-day, and 50-day simple moving average are popular choices.

There are several ways to utilize the moving average. The first is to look at the angle of the moving average. If it is mostly moving horizontally for an extended amount of time, then the price isn’t trending, it is ranging. A trading range occurs when a security trades between consistent high and low prices for a period of time.

If the moving average line is angled up, an uptrend is underway. However, moving averages don’t make predictions about the future value of a stock; they simply reveal what the price is doing, on average, over a period of time.

Crossovers are another way to utilize moving averages. By plotting a 200-day and 50-day moving average on your chart, a buy signal occurs when the 50-day crosses above the 200-day. A sell signal occurs when the 50-day drops below the 200-day.1 The time frames can be altered to suit your individual trading timeframe.

Chart showing an example of moving average crossovers

When the price crosses above a moving average, it can also be used as a buy signal, and when the price crosses below a moving average, it can be used as a sell signal.

However, since the price is more volatile than the moving average, this method is prone to more false signals, as the chart above shows.

Moving averages can also provide support or resistance to the price.1 The chart below shows a 100-day moving average acting as support (i.e., the price bounces off of it).

Chart showing a moving average acting as support

Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)

The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a kind of oscillating indicator. An oscillating indicator is a technical analysis indicator that varies over time within a band (above and below a centerline; the MACD fluctuates above and below zero. It is both a trend-following and momentum indicator. 

One basic MACD strategy is to look at which side of zero the MACD lines are on in the histogram below the chart. If the MACD lines are above zero for a sustained period of time, the stock is likely trending upwards. Conversely, if the MACD lines are below zero for a sustained period of time, the trend is likely down.2 Using this strategy, potential buy signals occur when the MACD moves above zero, and potential sell signals when it crosses below zero.

Signal line crossovers can also provide additional buy and sell signals. A MACD has two lines—a fast line and a slow line. A buy signal occurs when the fast line crosses through and above the slow line. A sell signal occurs when the fast line crosses through and below the slow line.

Chart showing an example of the moving average convergence divergence (MACD)

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The relative strength index (RSI) is another oscillating indicator but its movement is contained between zero and 100 so it provides different information than the MACD.

One way to interpret the RSI is by viewing the price as “overbought”—and due for a correction—when the indicator in the histogram is above 70, and viewing the price as oversold—and due for a bounce—when the indicator is below 30.3

In a strong uptrend, the price will often reach 70 and beyond for sustained periods of time. For downtrends, the price can stay at 30 or below for a long time. While general overbought and oversold levels can be accurate occasionally, they may not provide the most timely signals for trend traders.

An alternative is to buy close to oversold conditions when the trend is up and place a short trade near an overbought condition in a downtrend.

For example, suppose the long-term trend of a stock is up. A buy signal occurs when the RSI moves below 50 and then back above it. Essentially, this means a pullback in price has occurred. So, the trader buys once the pullback appears to have ended (according to the RSI) and the trend is resuming. The 50-levels are used because the RSI doesn’t typically reach 30 in an uptrend unless a potentialreversal is underway. A short-trade signal occurs when the trend is down and the RSI moves above 50 and then back below it.

Trendlines or a moving average can help establish the trend direction and in which direction to take trade signals.

Chart showing an example of the relative strength index (RSI)

On-Balance Volume (OBV)

Volume itself is a valuable indicator, and on-balance volume (OBV) takes a significant amount of volume information and compiles it into a single one-line indicator. The indicator measures cumulative buying and selling pressure by adding the volume on “up” days and subtracting volume on “down” days. 

Ideally, the volume should confirm trends. A rising price should be accompanied by a rising OBV; a falling price should be accompanied by a falling OBV. 

The figure below shows the shares of Netflix Inc. (NFLX) trending higher along with OBV. Since OBV didn’t drop below its trendline, it was a good indication that the price was likely to continue trending higher even after the pullbacks.

Chart showing an example of on-balance volume (OBV)

If OBV is rising and the price isn’t, it’s likely that the price will follow the OBV in the future and start rising. If the price is rising and OBV is flat-lining or falling, the price may be near a top. If the price is falling and OBV is flat-lining or rising, the price could be nearing a bottom.

Chart showing an example of on-balance volume (OBV)

The Bottom Line

Indicators can simplify price information, in addition to providing trend trade signals and providing warnings about reversals. Indicators can be used on all time frames, and for the most part, they have variables that can be adjusted to suit each trader’s specific preferences. Traders can combine indicator strategies–or come up with their own guidelines–so entry and exit criteria are clearly established for trades.

Learning to trade on indicators can be a tricky process. If a particular indicator appeals to you, you may decide to research it further. Most importantly, it’s a good idea to test it out before using it to make live trades. And for those who have never actively traded before, it’s important to know that opening a brokerage account is a necessary first step in order to gain access to the stock market.

Podcasting

podcating

Another way to make money online is by hosting an online podcast.well a Good Financial Cents podcast to go along with blog, and use that platform to find new sponsors and advertisers all the time.I still remember getting my friend first sponsor on the podcast and finding out they were willing to pay $8,000 to include a short clip at the beginning of each podcast for 90 days. That was insanely exciting him at the time since I wasn’t sure I would be able to monetize podcast that much at first.

If you want to know how to podcast video and make money click here complete setup steps by step.

Online Course

If you have any skill you can teach others, it’s also possible to set up an online course you can market online. You can find online courses that teach anything from cooking to marketing or even freelance writing. Heck, I even offer my own course for financial advisors who want to take their businesses online— The Online Advisor Growth Formula.

Most people set up their online course through a platform like Teachable.com. With Teachable, you can upload your course materials and use the platform to manage customers and accept payments.

Sponsored Posts

If you have a website or a large social media following, you can also make money by pursuing sponsored posts and ads. But, how does this work? Basically, companies are willing to pay bloggers and social media influencers to promote their products and services. If you have a platform, be it a blog or a huge Instagram following, you can cash in.

Keep in mind though, you don’t need a website to do sponsored content since you can also get paid if you have a lot of social media followers. My wife has a pretty big Instagram following, and she gets all kinds of sponsorships. Not only does she get paid in cash, but we get a lot of free stuff, too. We’ve received free rugs, free lights, and free carpet cleaners. She only promotes things she loves though, so this strategy works really well for her.

Build an Online Community

Last but not least, you can also earn money online by building an online community, although the monetization strategies you can pursue will vary a lot depending on your goals. You can build a community with a blog, for example. You can also build an online forum and charge people for membership. You could even build up a Facebook group and use your influence there to sell and promote products.

Prior to that group, they had an online community for teachers looking for lesson plans. That probably sounds pretty random, but it’s crazy the type of communities you can build and rally people around. If it’s something that you’re passionate about yourself and you want to connect with others that have that same passion, then an online community is something you should definitely consider

Freelance Writing

If you have writing skills and creative talent, it’s also possible to get paid to create online content. I don’t do this as much as I used to, but I am very aware of how viable this income stream is.
One blogger I know, Holly Johnson, actually makes over $200,000 per year creating content for other websites. And actually, that’s on top of the six figures she earns with her blog, Club Thrifty.

According to Johnson, the key to making it as a freelance writer is figuring out a niche, networking with people who might hire you, and delivering high-quality content 100 percent of the time. While there are a ton of writing job boards to help you get started, she says it’s fairly easy to find starter writing jobs on websites like Upwork.com

  6. Write Effective Headlines, Sub-headings, Headings Tags. …
  7. Keyword Choice and Keyword Selection Strategies – Pick Your Battles.

3.  Start Guest Blogging

Guest blogging, also called “guest posting,” is the act of writing content for another company’s website. … Attract traffic back to their website. Boost their domain authority using external links to high-authority domains. Increase their brand credibility and awareness

The facts speak for itself and show that it is still a relevant way to gain high-quality links.

Accepting guest posts is a great way to grow your blog without having to do a ton of work. Guest posters will share their content when it’s published and will subsequently promote your blog. Free marketing! That free marketing can lead to more social media shares and, hopefully, links to your site.

3.Go After Referral Traffic

Rather than trying to persuade other sites to link back to you (a tedious and time-intensive process), create content that just begs to be linked to.

If you’re a complete beginner to online marketing and traffic generation, what is meant by referral traffic?

Referral traffic is essentially visitors that come to your blog or your website from various other channels, both online and offline.

For instance, you might get referral traffic from websites and blog articles that have linked directly to your blog.

You may also get referral traffic from email links, social media posts and mentions, blog network sites, push notifications, eBooks and PDF links, or even print marketing (offline, direct), etc.

A. Send out timely email newsletters

Email marketing has survived the test of time. It still, by far, the best way to grow your blog audience.
Your email newsletters can be a great source of referral traffic to your blog, if, you create them with the intent of providing ‘value’.
I think every blog should send out an email newsletter once a week, or at least a few times each month to benefit from referral traffic.
Also, all your other outgoing emails should be considered as opportunities to drive referral traffic to your blog.

B. Join the Pinterest revolution

Did you know that Pinterest is considered to be the 4th largest traffic driver on the web, beating out sites like Yahoo for organic traffic?

If you have a Pinterest profile, start making it work for you.

Connect with other bloggers and influential people in your niche or industry who are already owning it on Pinterest.

Learn from them, and start pinning their content, videos, and infographics to your own boards. Do the same for your own content too, of course, mix it up a bit.

When you promote someone else’s content, they will almost always come back and help to promote yours.

Use high-quality images and optimize them correctly for Pinterest.

Make your content more ‘visually interesting‘, don’t just use unedited free stock images downloaded from the web. Instead, add some fancy text, cool filters, and quotes from your blog posts even.

All these little ‘attention to detail’ things can help encourage users on Pinterest to come and repin your shared content to their own Pinterest boards.

4.   Social Sharing

I know that social media marketing can be extremely time consuming, but you can’t ignore it. It works if you are prepared to put the effort into it.

The connections I’ve made via social media over the years have been priceless, even with a poor engagement rate. Not everyone on social media is chatty.

To make social media marketing work for your blog, you need to have a strategy in place for regularly promoting your content. Your marketing needs to be creative and there are plenty of tools you can use to get creative on social media.

Your aim is not just to boost traffic from social media, but to boost engagement. Having a Facebook page or a Twitter account is all well and good, but it’s simply not enough anymore.

And don’t forget that many social media platforms are now Pay-to-Play. So if you want more likes, shares, followers, engagement. Doing it organically will only work so much.

So, here are some things you can do to increase engagement and traffic to your blog from social media –

  1. Select only the social networks that are working for you already, and dominate on them.
  2. Engage on a whole new level – That means to reply to every single comment, be helpful, add value, be resourceful, be empathetic, and just listen to your audience.
  3. Share interesting, engaging content – Such as images, videos, polls, questions, motivational quotes, etc. Don’t just post link after link to your blog posts all the time. I’m still trying to break away from doing this myself. I know sometimes if just feels easy to post and link and be done with it.
  4. Get creative with your link share – Upload an image from your blog post and link to it, or, create a short video to talk about the topic of your latest post.

5. Advertise

  1. Social Media. I cannot stress enough on how important social media is today. …
  2. Email Marketing. Email marketing is a conventional method to reach out to your target audience. …
  3. Email Signature. …
  4. Blog Commenting. …
  5. Post Frequently. …
  6. Guest Blogging. …
  7. Youtube. …
  8. Link other Blogs in own posts.

You can’t just create valuable, high-quality content for your blog and assume readers will find their way to your site to consume it. You must use blog promotion to promote your content so you can: Drive traffic from new audiences. … Attract back links to your site.

If you’re hoping that more traffic to your site will also result in more sales, you’ll need to target high commercial intent keywords as part of your paid search strategies. Yes, competition for these search terms can be fierce (and expensive), but the payoffs can be worth it.

Avast antivirus

KEY DETAILS OF AVAST FREE ANTIVIRUS

  • Stay safe from viruses, malware, spyware, and hackers
  • There have been 2 updates within the past 6 months
  • The current version has 1 flag on VirusTotal 
  • Also available on Android, Mac

Editor Review

Avast has one of the most popular antivirus apps around, due in part to offering a free version, and it’s one that performs respectably. The company acquired its rival AVG in September of 2016, and now both use Avast’s malware scanning engine, but their distinct personalities remain. Here are the highlights of Avast’s latest release

PROS

Easy to use: Avast has four main protection components: File Shield, Behavior Shield, Web Shield, and Mail Shield. If, for example, you use webmail and/or you find that Avast’s Web Shield interferes with your web browsing, you can disable both relevant protection layers, while keeping the others active. Now, ordinarily, an antivirus app will keep warning you to turn these features back on. But if you really don’t need them enabled, you can tell Avast that you want to ignore those warnings, and it won’t bother you about those settings again.

Solid protection: According to independent labs, such as AV-Test and AV-Comparatives, Avast Free isn’t quite as sharp as industry leaders like Trend Micro or Bitdefender, but it’s arguably the best protection you’ll find that comes without a price tag.

Aggressively low pricing: If you do decide to order Avast Pro, you can do so from within the app, and Avast offers a one-year subscription for a reasonable $15, which is about half of its street price. If you change your mind, Avast offers a 60-day trial of Avast Internet Security, which was priced at $20 a year. Pro purports to add enhancements to online banking security and “a test space for checking suspicious apps.” This latter function appears to be a sandbox, in which you can open an app and investigate its behavior without risking an infection.

Relatively muted sales pitch: Free antivirus apps have a reputation for being pretty pushy about paying for a subscription, but Avast is on the low-key end of the spectrum (and it has been for a number of years). There are a couple upgrade buttons on the main console, and a number of features (a firewall, URL safety verifier, and “Webcam Shield,” among others) that redirect you to an order screen when you click on them, but nothing felt particularly tricky, and the sales pitch doesn’t make ironclad claims about what the program can do.

Data collection transparency: Avast tells you right off the bat that it wants to gather anonymized usage data, some of which may be used to help fund development, but you can disable this function in the Privacy settings. Though it would be nice if it explained what “certain” information it wanted to gather.

CONS

Some settings could use more explanation: Avast’s settings menus have a number of icons marked with an exclamation point that you can click on for further details. But the description for CyberCapture doesn’t sound substantially different from what a virus scanner already does: It “analyzes unrecognized files, defends and warns you about new threats, and helps keep your system secure.” And Hardened Mode is there “to further lock down the security of this computer.” But in what way?

Subscription offers can get confusing: The $15 Avast Pro offer is available via the upgrade buttons on the main console, but it’s not an option when you click on one of the features that has a padlock on it. There, you get two different offers: $20 a year for Avast Internet Security or $30 a year for Avast Premiere. But if you, say, click on the padlocked “Sensitive Data Shield” icon, you only see the Avast Internet Security offer, and it has a different list of advertised features.

BOTTOM LINE

While there are some quirks in the interface, Avast is a respectable and respectful antivirus app overall, and the paid version is notably budget-friendly.

PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION

From Avast Software:Lightweight, state-of-the-art protection that won’t slow down your PC. Avast Free Antivirus has been redesigned to be easier to use while staying light on your PC. It offers proprietary, cutting-edge CyberCapture technology that finds and stops unknown files, as well as improved Wi-Fi Inspector which can identify even more weak points in your router. It also features SafeZone, the world’s most secure browser, and an enhanced Game Mode which turns off background checks and updates to maximize your gaming experience.

2. Mozilla Firefox

Mozilla Firefox is a popular Web browser available on a variety of platforms. Its code DNA reaches back to the dawn of the World Wide Web and has shaped other software and software companies, including The Tor Project
  • Surf the Web comfortably, relying on speed, safety, and power of customization
  • There have been 5 updates within the past 6 months
  • The current version has 1 flag on VirusTotal 
  • Also available on Android, iOS, and Mac

PROS

Battery-friendly video streaming: We tested video streaming on both Firefox and Chrome. While Chrome usually provides smoother page scrolling, Firefox surprisingly pulled ahead when it came to CPU power consumption with HD videos on YouTube, one of the most popular browsing activities. This power consumption has a direct effect on how long your battery lasts, and on the likelihood of a laptop fan noisily kicking in to keep your PC cool.

Easy reading thanks to smooth text scrolling: On a text-heavy Web page, Firefox does a better job than Google Chrome (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS) at making vertical scrolling scale to your Windows mouse settings. While the default scroll speed is relatively slow, Firefox has a lot more steps between “not enough” and “way too much.” Text-heavy webpages also tend to glide up and down more smoothly in response to your mouse wheel movements, which makes it easier for your eye to track where you are on a page. However, Chrome still scrolls more smoothly on media-heavy pages.

Highly customizable interface navigation: Mozilla introduced a UI overhaul in November 2013 that didn’t go over very well. Among other things, the standard menu design was replaced with a “hamburger” button that opened to reveal a number of icons. On the bright side, Mozilla gives developers deep access into modifying Firefox’s behavior, and one of them quickly introduced Classic Theme Restorer, which ended up giving Firefox the most user-customizable interface of any browser on the market, even three years later. With Classic Theme Restorer, the bookmarks button doesn’t have to look (confusingly) like a clipboard; you can tell at a glance which custom search engine you have loaded; and you can freely mix design elements from both the “classic” UI and the overhaul.

CONS

Underwhelming performance on media-heavy Web pages: Embedded videos, animated images, and large static images have become a very popular way for both advertisers and content creators to reach their audiences. But this rich-media environment takes its toll on a Web browser that can’t load all that data smoothly. Chrome feels prepared for this evolution, while Firefox arguably requires an ad blocker to prevent chunky scrolling and delayed loading of different sections on the page. (Firefox on Android fares much better in this department.) Basically, Chrome feels optimized for visual elements, while Firefox feels optimized for reading.

Mozilla has committed to finally replacing the Gecko page rendering engine with a new one called Quantum, but the company doesn’t expect to make it available until the end of 2017.

Sync requires managing another account: With Google Chrome, you can log in to your Google account (which you already have if you use Gmail or subscribe to YouTube channels), and it will pull in your bookmarks, add-ons, and themes from any other device where you’ve used the Chrome browser with that Google account. With Firefox, you need to create a separate Firefox account, which you won’t use anywhere else. Thankfully, though, the login screen works just fine with password managers like LastPass CHROME.

Many more will be update soon
