My Internet Journey

learn how to make a retirement income from home

I first discovered the ‘net way back in 1994. In those days, it was all dial-up connections and pages that took up to several minutes to load. Boy, we were a patient lot back then!

I guess I always knew the internet was going to become big business, but no-one, I’m sure, could forecast the internet as we see it today. I, and most people I know, never dreamed that it would become so easy (and, some say, so hard in many ways) for ordinary folk like you and me to become online entrepreneurs and be running our own internet businesses.

 

The first time I heard of someone having an online business was back in the mid 2000s. My older brother had a website selling fishing gear from a Chinese company. He was retired, and set it up as a way of earning a little extra income by exploiting his main hobby, fishing. His business was what today we’d call a Drop Shipping site.

At around the same time, another friend, who lived in the same town as I, had set up a similar business.

Unfortunately, I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention at the time. (Just another missed opportunity) I do remember she had an arrangement where she could design watches, mugs, belt buckles and loads of other items and promote them online. She’d take orders and payment, then order the items from a supplier somewhere (China, I think) to have the items shipped directly to the customer. She paid the supplier and kept a decent profit for herself. Business was slow however, and she dropped the idea after a bit.

Fast-forward to 2015, and I was on the verge of retirement myself. I started wondering about my friend’s, and my brother’s, businesses, and whether I could emulate what they had been doing. By this time, the internet was a much bigger deal, and almost everybody seemed to be online. I wasn’t looking to become a millionaire, just supplement my retirement income and keep the old Grey Matter active.

Don't fall for a Money Trap
Money Traps are Everywhere

For the best part of a year and a half, I searched and researched all kinds of money making schemes. I was scammed and spammed by experts, and wasted a lot of time and a whole lot of money. I soon came to realize that the vast majority of Make Money Online schemes were complete and utter scams.

Then I heard about affiliate marketing

The basic idea of an affiliate or content marketing website is that the creator/owner publishes an article that solves a problem or answers a question for a visitor. This could be anything from “What’s the best slow cooker for use in a trailer home” to “How do I back-up my iPhone to a Windows computer” or “Where’s the best place to stay in Cambodia”.

We then add links to the article that take the visitor to a site where they can read more details if they need them, and maybe purchase an item. Sometimes we just publish without links in order to build our traffic and trust. Sometimes we just have promotions on the site where we receive a small commission if someone clicks an ad.

There’s a short video here that explains the concept if you prefer. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Product Research is the Key

People don’t always have the time or inclination to do thorough online research. If someone else is ready and willing to supply the info they need, they’ll mostly be quite happy to read our reports and be guided by our advice.

One big point I have to stress here is that we need to be honest and accurate in our You can make money online

assessments and reviews. We need to build trust.

If visitors trust our reviews they’re more likely to buy through us. It’s as simple as that.

Building my Affiliate Business

To be successful with affiliate marketing, you need the right training and support. I tried a couple of different affiliate groups, with limited success, until I found the Wealthy Affiliate group.

(If you haven’t heard of WA before, there’s a detailed review of what they offer from the blue link above)

Once I signed up and began my free trial I knew I’d found the answer!

I signed on as a Pro Member and within a few short months I was starting to earn money. Not a lot, but I could see I was in the right place. Things are much better now, thank you.

That’s the thing we have to remember. Affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s also not going to work if you’re not prepared to put in the effort and follow the training.

I now have three websites in total. At one time I had six, but I realised I was spreading myself too thin and on-sold three of them through Flippa.com.

I built this site, My-Buzz.com, firstly to help others who were looking to earn money online. I’ve since started expanding it to include all sorts of product reviews that didn’t fit with my other niche sites. I’ll be adding more as time passes.

Feel free to browse the various articles in my blog roll. Do you have any questions? Have you already tried some sort of online business? Leave a comment below. I’d love to hear from you.

Nokia Flip Phone Review

Nokia 2720 Flip Phone; Back to the Future?

Nokia’s Flip Phone is Back!

I don’t usually post reviews on phones or similar electronic devices. I recently heard the news about Nokia’s newest offerings, however, and couldn’t help adding my voice to the crowd.

(Maybe it’s because I still have fond memories of my first Nokia flip phone several years ago)nokia 2720 flip phone

 

Over the past few years, HMD has resurrected several of the old classic Nokia designs. Two that come to mind were the iconic Nokia 3310, then the Nokia 8110 – also known as the Banana Phone from the Matrix film franchise. Now they are continuing this tradition with the N 2720.

Back in the late 2000’s, I had a little Nokia flipper, and I loved it! Sure, it wasn’t what you’d call a SmartPhone, but it was just so cool enjoy that “beam me up Scotty” moment when I flicked it open with my thumb to answer a call. I’m not sure about the model but I think it may have been the Nokia 6101.

 

The thing that impressed me most about that unit, apart from the way it fitted so easily into a pocket, was the excellent reception. Especially in remote areas. At the time, I was working as a Pilot/Escort Driver, chaperoning oversize mining and construction equipment all over the country. Phone reception was often a problem, and most phones simply couldn’t pick up a signal once out of the metro area.

Not my little Nokia clamshell. If I couldn’t get a signal, nobody could. I eventually upgraded to an iPhone 4S once Apple resolved this coverage issue, but sometimes I still missed my little Nokia. Who said nostalgia is a thing of the past?

The Nokia Originals.

The new Nokia 2720 is part of what HMD calls its “Nokia Originals” line. These phones offer modern spins on classic Nokia designs. In the case of the 2720, it’s the flip phone. which boasts a sleeker design, a larger 2.8-inch internal display, and loads of new features.

nokia 2720

The Nokia 2720 runs Kai OS, a feature-filled phone operating system that adds more modern amenities like Google, Google Maps, YouTube, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Google Assistant integration.

The inclusion of Google Assistant is especially helpful. HMD has improved GA this time around on an Operating System level. This means that, amongst other things, you’ll be able to use it to dictate texts (helpful if you’ve lost your T-9 typing skills) and open apps, plus more.

The flipping part works just like we remember: When you get a call, you’ll be able to see who’s calling on the 1.3-inch external display (it’ll also show other notifications), and you can answer simply by opening the phone. To hang up, simply snap the phone shut, and you’ll end the call. HMD also promises an impressive 27 days of standby time, which puts even the best smartphones to shame.

It doesn’t just stop with the more modern software. HMD has also added several modern improvements to the new 2720, all the while retaining the retro styling we all know and love. It’s a dual-SIM device with support for LTE, and it can even work as a Wi-Fi hot spot. This could make it a pretty decent option for a spare phone when travelling overseas.

The Nokia 2720 is due for release later in September 2019, although HMD has yet to announce the countries where it’ll be available. Pricing is set at 89 euros, or just under $100 US. This makes it a bargain buy for someone who wants a decent, reliable, phone without too many bells and whistles. Convenience and functionality are words that come to mind. In truth though, the only thing really separating the 2720 from many modern smartphones will be the screen size.

The keypad features a dedicated ICE (in case of emergency) button that can also be reprogrammed to call Google Assistant. Another really neat feature of this is that it can be programmed to send out up to five emergency texts to pre defined contacts. This will make the Nokia 2720 an ideal phone for an elderly or disabled relative as an emergency device.

Nokia 800 Tough Phone.

nokia 800 tough phone

If you happen to be looking for something a bit more durable, there’s the Nokia 800 Tough. This is the first rugged phone from HMD with Nokia branding. It boasts an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, two-metre drop protection rating, and various military-grade 810G certifications. A phone designed with tradies in mind, (among others) the Nokia 800 will soon find a ready market, I’m sure. It also includes a built-in carabiner loop and rubberized keys with extended spacing. Ideal if you need to use it while wearing gloves. HMD claims this will have up to 43 hours standby time from a single charge. Due for release in October, the Nokia 800 Tough will retail at 109 euros.

As with the 2720, the 800 also supports various social media apps and Google Assistant.

Nokia 110; The Bargain Basement Phone.

nokia 110

Another new Nokia phone being released this year is the Nokia 110, an upgraded version of the $15 Nokia 3310, but with added multimedia capabilities. You can side-load music onto a micro SD card (up to 32GB). It also has a basic camera and a built-in radio. It’ll be available later in September for 18 euros, or around $20 US. This one comes in a variety of colors and you can’t argue with the price. It even comes with Snake (the game) pre-loaded.

So, if you’re looking for a simpler alternative to the modern smartphone, or just want to relive old memories, Nokia have you covered. Any one of these phones reviewed here will fulfill these requirements as well as offering a cheap alternative for a second, back-up phone.

What is bUnited, and Is This Legit, or Is It a Pyramid Scam?

I received the following message on my LinkedIn profile recently.

I just joined bUnited. You might also be interested.

And the great thing is that bUnited pays everyone to unite. Very innovative.

Just click and see for yourself. I love it!

Now if there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my time as an affiliate marketer and blogger, it’s summed up in one sentence. Believe Nothing, Trust No-one, Check Everything! (Actually, that’s three things, but you’ll get my drift) In fact, I even have a sign on the wall near my desk with the letters BCT in large, bold text.

Here’s the sign, I just snapped it with my iPad.

Having never heard of bUnited before, and being the skeptical soul I am, I assumed it was some sort of scam. Nevertheless, I thought I’d check it out.

Legendary Marketer Club, Scam or Legit?

Legendary Marketer Review: Is This Legit, or Just Another High-Priced Scam?

duplicate dave the legendary marketer

Chances are that you’ve recently heard about the Legendary Marketer Club and you’re wanting to know whether Legendary Marketer is a genuine opportunity to make money online or another rip-off scam.

If this is the case, I don’t blame you for being a tad sceptical. I’ve looked into heaps of online money-making schemes and yes, it’s true, a huge number of them are nothing but scams designed to separate you from your hard-earned money. Some aim to do this as quickly as possible. Others will attempt to hook you into a slow drip, like the proverbial frog in hot water, until you feel you have invested so much already, you just have to keep going.

In this Legendary Marketer review, I’ll be attempting to cut through the hype and tell it like it is so you can make an informed decision about investing in David Sharpe’s newest offering.

So Just What is Legendary Marketer?

And More Importantly

Can you make money by investing in Legendary Marketer?

Read on and I’ll try to give you the rundown on this scheme. In this review I’ll attempt to answer all your questions, even some you may not have thought to ask. If you have further questions you’ll be able to ask them at the end.

Feel free to jump ahead to the following sections if you wish to.

How Does Legendary Marketer Really Work?

Is Legendary Marketer Really a Scam?

Is There Another Way?

Legendary Marketer is the brainchild of one David Sharpe, a well-established internet marketer and “guru”. The products offered range in price from $30 per month to well in excess of $58,000 one time.

Yes, you read that correctly, $58,000. How many people would be prepared to shell out that much, I don’t know. Apparently there are some out there who will. The bottom line, though, is that you’ll have to sell these high priced “products” to others in order to earn the promised commissions. (There’s another catch, which I’ll get to in a minute.)

Here’s a video created by David Sharpe himself. It runs for ten to fifteen minutes.

If you visit their website there’s a similar video showing a countdown for a “Special Offer” which is due to expire within hours. If you go back tomorrow the clock will be reset, of course. This is a big Red Flag to me. It’s just the same old FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) trick all over again.

Fear of Missing OutI came across Legendary Marketer via a similar sales video from an affiliate of his who told me there are people making thousands of dollars in their first 30 days. Some up to 5 digits!

Everything in the sales pitch screamed Scam! to me so I simply deleted the link. After a bit of thought, I decided to look into it properly.

I actually paid for one month of access just to test the waters and then decided to write this post to help you and others like you avoid falling for this smooth, practised spiel.

You may have even seen this system marketed under other names, including End Financial Stress Now and others, but they all lead to the same sales funnel for Legendary Marketer.

 

end financial stress now book

Please Note: This system is in no way connected to the book, End Financial Stress Now by Emily Birken. Available on Amazon, this book is a goldmine of genuine financial advice, and I’d recommend it to anyone. My guess is that David Sharpe, also known as Duplicate Dave, is attempting to cash in on Ms Birkin’s book’s good reputation.

 

 

 

How Does Legendary Marketer Club Work?

In a nutshell, you have to buy a “Licencing Fee” to promote and sell the products. You can only earn commissions on products you have purchased yourself. (This is the catch I mentioned earlier)

It’s basically the same as so many other schemes like Digital Altitude and MOBE that have recently been SHUT DOWN by the FTC. All the products you’re being expected to sell are digital products, so there’s no way to justify the high prices asked.

The sales pitch will tell you everything you want to hear, including the fact that you hardly need to do anything to have bucketfuls of cash dumped into your bank account every day.

The work, they say, is all done for you by your very own coach and sales team. What they don’t tell you is the true cost you’re going to be facing.

make money with legendary marketer
Money For Nothing?

For your initial outlay of $30 per month, you will get entry to the back end where you can access your “training”. This access is pretty basic, however, and you’ll probably be soon needing help from your “coach”. This person is really just another salesperson whose job it is to upsell you to as high a subscription as they can. They earn a commission for themselves as well as the person who referred you into the scheme.

At this basic level, the biggest commission you can earn is $18 per sale. If your lead then goes on to buy into any of the high end offers you get nothing.

So is Legendary Marketer a Total Scam?

Well actually, no. Legendary Marketer is NOT a Total Scam.

If you’re genuinely seeking to learn how affiliate marketing works, this product will show you. The $30 per month basic access will give you some rudimentary training in affiliate marketing. There are also some occasional live video classes included. Where Legendary Marketer falls short is in the total package.

The LM membership does NOT include such things as website hosting, website building tools and training, and other features available with programs such as this one, at a similar price. It seems they want you to concentrate on email marketing and paid advertising.

Free Traffic is Best
Free Traffic is The Way to Go.

That’s fine if you have the money to spend, but the best long term success comes from building your own website and generating free traffic. This doesn’t happen overnight, but once the flow starts it’s never-ending. The top affiliate marketers know this, and will never fall for a get-rich-quick scheme such as this.

The other drawback with the Legendary Marketer Club is that the whole system is geared towards selling and reselling their own very expensive products. It’s true that you can make thousands of dollars if and when you sell memberships. Provided, of course, you can find anyone prepared to pay the exorbitant prices being asked. (And if you have purchased all the upsells yourself, of course)

The commission rates are on par with most digital products, at around 60% for starter members. (This commission does drop to 40% for the top end stuff though, as 20% is assigned to the “coach” who helps secure the deal.) That’s why you’ll find quite a few sites online spruiking Legendary Marketer. Especially with paid ads.

Do I recommend Legendary Marketer as a means of making money online?  Well, No.

First, there’s the combination of high upfront costs and difficulty finding customers. Then there’s the fact that the primary focus is not on teaching you how to set up an affiliate website, but how to sell their ‘products’ to others with paid advertising. Others who will then be shown the same thing all over again. It’s not MLM, but it has similarities. There’s a good chance the whole scheme could be shut down by the FTC any day. Enough to tell me we need to look elsewhere.

So, Is There a Better Way to Make Money Online?

There are two ways most successful people make money online. Drop Shipping, and Affiliate Marketing. (This link will take you to a post comparing the two)

By far the best long term option is Affiliate Marketing. What you need though, is to be associated with a genuine, reputable, and ethical organization that really has your best interests at heart. (Yes, such a thing does exist)

I’ve been an affiliate marketer since 2016, and believe me, I wouldn’t still be here if it didn’t work.

I have a number of websites, and I work about 20 hours a week. As a semi-retired person, I’m just a dabbler, yet I’m still earning a decent additional income.

I have friends in the business who are a lot more dedicated than I, who are earning five or six-figure incomes after just a couple of years. This post here, will tell you how you too can become an affiliate marketer. You can even start for free.

Anyway, thanks for visiting my site. I hope you found this article informative.

Is Hempworx a Scam, or is it a Legit MLM?

Can you Make Money Selling CBD With HempWorx?

 

I have several websites, and on one of them I promote the many benefits of Medicinal Cannabis. my daily choice hempworx - hempworx com

In particular, the main therapeutic ingredient; CBD.

I was recently contacted by another online CBD affiliate and invited to join the HempWorx program.

Now, I readily admit I hadn’t heard of HempWorx before, so I decided to do some research. After all, It’d be foolish of me to overlook another potential income stream.

So What is the HempWorx Program?

It’s a simple fact of life that these days we can make money online selling just about anything from the comfort of our own home. The Internet is a wonderful place, as they say, and the opportunities are endless.

The trick to being successful with internet marketing is to find a product or service that is relatively new, and shows increasing popularity. That’s not to say you can’t be successful with established goods or services, but trending offers definitely present better opportunities.

CBD Products fulfil these requirements perfectly. We can’t pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV these days without hearing something about this wonderful ‘new’ product, Medicinal Cannabis.

Gutenberg: Friend or Foe?

How Will WordPress Gutenberg Affect the Way we Write?

There’s been a fair bit of hype lately about the WordPress Gutenberg update. Is this really going to be a great leap forward as promised – or just another level of confusion?

One thing’s for certain, we won’t be able to avoid it, so we’d better learn how to use it – and quickly!

I’ve been experimenting with Elementor Builder for a bit. (you can read my review here) I’d hopefully be excused then, for thinking I’d have a bit of a head start at understanding Gutenberg.

Is This the Best Ever Page Builder, or What?

What is the Best WordPress Page Builder?

When I first started learning how to build a website, there wasn’t a whole lot of choice when it came to page building.

My first sites, and all the content, were assembled using the basic WordPress Editor. For its time, WordPress Editor was the be-all and end-all so far as content editing was concerned. Let’s face it – WordPress is the one platform that’s enabled more mere mortals like myself to build our own websites than any other. WordPress truly is simplicity itself!

Then along came the Wealthy Affiliate Site Content editor. To those of us associated with the WA group, Site Content Editor was a boon indeed. It was a huge jump from what I’d become used to and made page building and content management a breeze by comparison. (Thanks, Kyle and Carson)
