According to a recent report released by major cryptocurrency exchange Binance, bitcoin has become less correlated with other cryptos in Q2 2019 due to a potential “flight-to-quality” in the recent bull run.

Ether (ETH) is holding onto its position as the largest altcoin by market cap, which currently stands at $31.1 billion. The second-largest altcoin, Ripple’s XRP, has a market cap of $16.8 billion at press time.

Coin360 data shows that ETH has seen its value increase by over .67% over the last 24 hours. At press time, ETH is trading around $292. On the week, the coin has also lost about 5.82% of its value.

XRP is up by nearly 4% over the last 24 hours and is currently trading at around $0.399. On the week, the coin is down about 5.75%.

At press time, the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies is $327 billion, over 4.92% lower than the value it reported a week ago.

Affiliate Search Engine No Holds Barred Approach To Making Money Online

As you might have guessed, affiliate search engine marketing has become one of the quickest ways to make a fast buck online. In fact, many business owners have jumped on the affiliate marketing bandwagon as a way to promote their companies. On the other hand, affiliate search engine marketing is a surefire way for anyone to begin a home-based business.

You see affiliate marketing is the best of both worlds. Don?t worry; if this is the first time you?ve heard of this unique type of marketing you are not alone. But more on that later. You may not know this but search engine marketing has taken the world by storm. Listen to me carefully now. Many people are using this technique successfully. But many others treat affiliate marketing like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Bear with me as tell you how to get started. Here goes? For starters, you?ll be glad to know that affiliate search engine marketing is easy to understand. Quite simply, as an affiliate marketer you will be promoting websites and rewarded for sending visitors or customers to the site. Understand this: compensation varies depending on the type of program you choose to promote.

For instance, some websites will pay for every visitor you send to their site. However, other sites pay you a percentage of the sale of a product or service If you think that?s nothing, think again. One sale could net you a profit of $50 or more. It?s true; some products are priced lower than that. But the beauty of affiliate programs is the fact that you get to choose which products you promote. Honestly, you can choose to only promote programs that pay no less than $20. It?s all up to you. Here?s something else.

If you need a way to promote you home based business, affiliate marketing could be the diamond in the rough you?ve been looking for. In this case you recruit affiliates to promote your site for you. And get this: you don?t have to pay them unless they meet certain criteria. For example you could pay them based on the action the customer performs such as filling out a form, or per sale. What this all boils down to is that you can get your site promoted for you with will little effort of your own. Look, I?m not kidding around. The majority of business owners choose a pay per sale program.

Here is the reason why? they never have to pay out a dime unless the affiliate makes a sale. It?s a win-win situation for both. And best of all, you can make a full time income promoting other companies products and services. Just let this sink in for minute – affiliate search engine marketing may be one the best ways to become financially secure. But don?t take my word for it.

Try it for yourself.

Benefits Of Article Advertising Or Article Marketing

Article advertising or article marketing can be the key to not only making money but having a successful business. If you have a product or service that you are trying to promote then one of the best and most cost effective ways is by using article advertising.

Article advertising is a type of marketing effort in which you write short articles, about 400-600 words, related to the product or service you wish to promote. If they are well written they will, after getting distributed to various online article directories that will be easily found on search engines and read by people interested in what you have to offer.

In article advertising, well written article will be constructed in such a way that it has strategic placements of keywords and keyword phrases used by those who are searching for what you have to offer. This will make your article easily found by search engines and can help get you noticed earlier by future consumers. Some of the benefits of article advertising are:

1) It is a great way to gain respect in the niche you are trying to reach. If they see your well written and informative article they will see you as an authority. The more that you have written about a certain area, the more trusted you will be and the more likely they will be to buy what you offer.

2) It is very cost effective. If you write the article yourself it will only cost you the amount of time and energy you put into researching and writing the subject. If you can’t write well, you can easily find those who are able to write for you who are affordable and will let you put your name on it, aka, ghostwriters. These are many times very affordable, though you need to make sure that they are able to give you unique content and are native speakers in the language you are trying to market in.

3) Links are also a great benefit to article advertising. Your well written article will have a link back to your website and will also have a resource box with a strong call to action. This will invite those reading the article to go to your site to find out more about what you have to offer. This will also help your search engine ranking.

4) It helps you reach a much larger target audience than you otherwise would have. Those who are really interested in what you are offering will be the ones who read your article. You won’t be putting your marketing efforts in front of people who may or may not care about what you have to offer. It will be read by people who are truly interested in what you are doing and are also very likely to buy what you are selling.

Article marketing or article advertising is a great way to get attention to your products or services, if it is used correctly. Take some time to learn how to do it the right way or find a good ghost writer to do the work for you and you will find customers who are not only willing to buy from you, but trust that you are going to meet their needs and may come back to you for other purchases. Done correctly, article advertising can help you climb to the top and make you a success.

LinkedIn – To Open Network Or Not

As an avid LinkedIn user, and as a member of the LinkedIn Open Networkers group (aka LIONs), it is a question I see being asked on LinkedIn and at other social media platforms and services on a regular basis. I actually think that the answer is more varied than simply the two options of "open networking" or "closed networker," and your individual answer depends on you and your objectives in creating a LinkedIn profile.

linkedin training

LinkedIn system

The reason that the question exists to the extent it does, is that LinkedIn has created an online network which at its basic level is fundamentally different to any other Social Media network. LinkedIn positively discourages members to connect to those that they do not know and have not met. They even enforce the systematic structure by making supporting statements in both their terms and conditions as well as their User Guidelines. This is in stark contrast to the social side of others online networks which most will be more used to in the form of Facebook, where chatting and connecting to people who seem to be much like you is part of the whole ethos.

But, and here's the crucial difference: LinkedIn users have an average household income of over $140k, with 80% over $75k, the spammers would see an open network as list building shangri-la! Further, when 60% are senior executives and 90% are college educated, it would mean that any affiliate or direct sale would inevitably come with a high commission return.

LinkedIn market

Hence from a market trust view point, making it difficult to connect is ensuring just that: consistent, believable and hence trusted online networking. Further, that is what LinkedIn's target audience want. They are not used to the fast moving and Farmville-powered coffee corner that is Facebook. They want something more akin to a select and stable club, where one can mix with like minded people, and then be introduced by acquaintances when mutual needs which are mainly business orientated arise.

LinkedIn networking

So, what options are there between open networking and closed networking which can be adopted by LinkedIn users? Firstly, lets be clear here: there is no such thing as closed networking on any social network, including LinkedIn. If you choose to be wholly "closed" in your networking, then you wouldn't even have a LinkedIn profile, let alone connect to known friends whom you work with directly or meet with on a weekly basis. You choose to join a club or network and stay there because it gives you a professional marker post in a popular place, and opens up opportunity on both a personal, professional and business level.

But on the other hand, nor does truly open networking exist. If you were truly open, then you would accept every invite that any "profile" sent to you. The reason I mentioned those statistics about LinkedIn at the start of this piece, was because however difficult a systems designer makes connecting to others, those membership statics much like the challenge of stealing the British Royal Crown Jewels or the Mona Lisa from Paris will always attract ambitious opportunists.

While as a recruiter and CV writer I never encourage non-artiste job applicants to place a photo on their CV, in online networking one of the first signs of a spamming profile is the lack of profile image, or use of one that you may have seen once or twice before: its amazing how many photos of Rod Stewart, Bono and Sir Tom Jones are available! Then there are the names, most often three letters as that is the minimum LinkedIn will allow; or the incomplete profile records of both education and work history: one term at Harvard and a three months on Wall Street doesn't fool anyone!

So in reality, everyone is the same type of networker, but at different points along a line of how much trust they require to develop in others before they decide to offer to connect.

List of Social Networking Sites

This is a quick list of social networking sites, which can be used for traffic generation, or just getting your name out there for marketing and credibility.

Facebook – This was developed for the collegiate market and later expanded to professionals as these people graduated from college. The interface is clean and crisp, without a lot of extraneous stuff. It allows people to connect with others in their own network. It offers a profile and several ways to market yourself to your friends, although you are not allowed to spam marketing hype on your profile or elsewhere. It has many applications you can add to boost your profile or add marketing features to your profile.

LinkedIn – This social networking site has a far more business-like and professional flavor. It is noted for helping people network to find new jobs or business opportunities.

Squidoo – This site allows you to define your brand and even promote and market products. It is more of a marketer's social network and is based on the creation of lenses that are focal points of interest that you want to highlight about your personal expertise or your business.

Twitter – A social networking site with minute-by-minute updates, if that's what you like. It's unlike the other sites, but hugely popular, particularly for mobile phone updates.

By the way, do you want to add a LinkedIn coaching program to your business? If so, join me in Markethive and I will introduce you to someone who provides training. There is no cost to either of these. Good luck.

Garret Jacobs wins the N.C. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp Competition

This year N.C.. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp Competition winner is my brother Garret Jacobs! While this achievement may seem long overdue for some, I knew this day would come. Winning any competition that's open to anyone nationwide is always an accomplishment. I honestly think that his biggest accomplishment just might be that this may have been only his second attempt in entering the N.C.. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp Competition.

It reminds me of what may have been his 1st art competition that he entered years ago back here in Burlington City NJ. Each participant could enter  this art competition either as a professional or armature based upon upon the competition rules. As my brother received his armature credentials and setup his table (a little further down from our original spot), I had to get his paintings out of the car from where we were parked. I carried each painting to the new table locations and we sat there as people came by looking. What we kept noticing over a 90 minute span was that people kept taking a wide path around a tree that was about 50 feet from us (where we first parked). Some would even stop, stare and point but we didn't get it.

My brother asked me to walk over to that tree and try to see what people were looking at. So only as the baby brother could do, I did just what he asked. When I got down to that tree to see what people were looking at, all I could do is laugh. As I walking back with both hands behind my back, I stopped and he asked "Well"? I asked my brother "remember that you said that you were missing a painting"? I said that when I parked the car and got the paintings out, I left the painting of your squirrel. The picture of this squirrel sitting upright against a tree just so happen to be a similar tree that was in the picture. People actually could tell if something was wrong with the squirrel because it never moved. One lady said she walked passed the squirrel twice then told others. Needless to say Garrett Jacobs won but loss this art competition if I remember correctly. They gave him 1st place in the armature division, banned him from future competitions because they said that he should have entered as a professional.

For years I've watch my brother paint one masterpiece after another, only to white them out and draw over them again, I can remember doctors would want to be my friend in hoping that it could land them a little closer to one of my brother paintings. He even had a couple of doctors that were willing to produce his prints and get him started but I know "trust" was big to him. In winning this year N.C.. Waterfowl Conservation Stamp Competition, I hope this gets him started. Whether it's the hair popping of the painting or almost seeing what these animals are looking at through the detail of the animal eyes, his life like renditions of wildlife is something the world needs to see.

Please revisit this post as I will try to update you when his 2016 award winning 2016 North Carolina Duck Stamp prints becomes available.

Characteristics of a social entrepreneur

A social entrepreneur is someone who has decided to undertake a venture that is aimed at tackling societies most pressing problems, like famine and climate change. A social enterprise could be a nonprofit or profit business model. Two people often associated with social entrepreneurship are Blake Mycoskie, CEO of Tom’s shoes who provide a pair of shoes for a child in need for every shoe purchased and Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank, providing microfinance to the impoverished.

social media, business startup, markethive, entrepreneur

Social entrepreneurs embody most of the characteristics as other types of entrepreneur. However, there are certain traits that distinguish them.

Healthy Impatience

A social entrepreneur shows a healthy impatience with the way things are, according to Duke University, in a report by its Centre for Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship. CASE notes that socially minded entrepreneurs want to change things right away, know it can be done, and are often frustrated that bureaucracy and the lack of political will, impede on social changes that could benefit the masses.

Commitment to Improve Social Welfare

Social entrepreneurs are socially committed first and foremost. But what differentiates them from, a company engaging in CSR, is their ability to fully devote their time, energy and limited resources to make ensure they implement positive change. A business can use corporate social responsibility (CSR)  –  which entails everything from charitable donations to community work  –  to improve social welfare, but critics also point out that some for-profit entities use CSR as a public-relations tool.

Philanthropic

A social entrepreneur generally has a philanthropic predisposition. They also tend to distribute whatever profits are made to the socially disadvantaged, or reinvest the profit in the organisation. The idea is to grow the entity by enlisting more people, so more people can be positively affected, more lives can be saved, and much more social value can be created in the long term.

Lack of Megalomania

Social entrepreneurs don’t tend to have a megalomaniac personality. Their cause comes first, not their fame or finance. These entrepreneurs don’t have a problem letting others shine, especially their team members or others involved in local projects.

Reliance on people

Although most early stage businesses have pressures to conserve cash, this is even more true of social enterprises. Social entrepreneurship revolves around the concept of crowdsourcing, tapping into a team of faithful workers along with volunteers scattered around the world to solve the greatest problems of humanity.

Super Easy Mexican Crockpot Casserole

This is a follow up to my last blog post “Fairly Easy Chickpea, Lentil, Brown Rice & Broccoli Crockpot Casserole” as this week I made “Super Easy Mexican Crockpot Casserole” by Alexis.  Below is her recipe which I copied from her website.
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 2½ cups vegetable broth
  • 1-15oz can black beans, drained
  • ¾ cup chunky salsa
  • 1 cup frozen corn (I used Trader Joe's roasted corn)
  • 1 large bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1¼ tsp cumin
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese (or more, to taste)
  • Avocado, for topping
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Place all ingredients except cheese and avocado in a 5-qt crockpot. Cook on high (covered) for about 2½ hours, or until rice is cooked through and most of the liquid is absorbed.
  2. Turn off crock-pot. Stir in cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with diced avocado and more salsa on top.
NOTES
Adapted from my Super Easy Chickpea, Broccoli and Brown Rice Crockpot Casserole
 
I recently bought measuring spoons and a measuring cup to do these recipes.  I did everything listed above.  I substituted one 15 oz. package of Fig Food Co. Black Beans instead of a can as it has less sodium.  I also used pink Himalayan salt instead of regular salt.

It took me exactly three hours to cooks this in my crockpot.  Below is my three hours later picture.

The title of this blog post is “I would actually bring this to a party and/or social gathering.”  I am impressed how well it came out.  I can see myself bringing this to a Super Bowl or a work place gathering.  It would be interesting to hear what others thought of it.  I am proud of myself for making this.  Below was my lunch this past Monday and it was just recipe alone.

While cooking the recipe I used the leftover vegetable broth and made Quinoa.  I don’t want to toss anything away.  It cooked well and added the leftover salsa to it.  I put this in a separate container and added this to my lunch Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  It was a good combination however I would only feel comfortable sharing with others what I had on Monday.

Next week, a recipe that came with my crockpot.  This Sunday I will make Vegetable Curry.

All the best,

Alan
