I like Fb just because it’s a good way to satisfy new folks and passively be taught extra concerning the folks I already know.


Whereas I used to be a gradual adapter to using Fb in my private and enterprise life, I used to be an early adapter on this planet of Twitter. I began utilizing Twitter in the summertime of 2008 after a enterprise buddy of mine mentioned how nice it was at connecting with like-minded people. Since creating my account, I’ve met 1000’s of individuals considering enterprise, entrepreneurship, journey, bike touring, motion pictures and extra. I take advantage of Twitter each day, typically instances sharing details about what I’m doing, issues I’ve discovered, motivational quotes I’ve learn, or answering questions. Twitter is without doubt one of the primary methods I drive folks again to my web site and create new on-line relationships.


As a result of I’ve a number of Twitter accounts related to a number of on-line companies, I take advantage of a free service referred to as Splitweet to ship tweets to a number of Twitter accounts with out having to always log out and in of Twitter frequently. When you’ve gotten a single Twitter account, a website like Splitweet is fairly pointless. However when you’ve gotten two or extra Twitter accounts that it’s essential put up to frequently, Splitweet is a savior. As a substitute of logging out and in of 8 or extra Twitter accounts, I do all of my tweeting from Splitweet.com. I merely go to the web site, write my tweet after which verify a field subsequent to the Twitter account I would like the tweet to be despatched to.

In order that’s the place Aweber is available in and helps me out! When folks ask me for recommendation about getting cash on-line, the very first thing I often inform them is to enroll in Aweber an begin engaged on their e-mail listing. It’s the primary manner I earn money on-line.

In the case of website hosting, I’ve discovered that you just wish to align with an organization who has glorious customer support.

Through the years, the folks at BlueHost have been quick, nice, and all the time prepared to assist. For those who want a superb host on your web site, I’d extremely advocate BlueHost.com.


Whereas all of my web sites are hosted with BlueHost, nearly all of my domains are bought with GoDaddy.com. What I like about GoDaddy is simply how straightforward it’s to maintain monitor of my domains, make title server adjustments, search out new domains, purchase expiring domains, and be notified effectively prematurely every time one in every of my present domains is arising for renewal. A number of years again I bought the area title “DarrenAlff.com,” however when the net host I bought the title with failed to inform me that the area was arising for renewal, I misplaced the area title, was advised I may solely get it again if I paid greater than $3,000, and was pressured to attend whereas the title floated round in cyber-space with out an official proprietor for greater than two years earlier than I used to be in a position to purchase it again with GoDaddy.

Each month a whole bunch of individuals click on the Amazon hyperlinks on my numerous web sites, which lead to 1000’s of {dollars} price of gross sales, which I then obtain a small fee for and the cash I make is then robotically deposited into my checking account. So that you see, Amazon.com is simply a part of the best way I’m able to dwell wherever I would like, journey every time I please, and earn money from anyplace on this planet… whether or not I’m awake or asleep.


In the case of promoting issues on-line, PayPal is my primary useful resource. I take advantage of PayPal to course of bank card gross sales for bodily merchandise like bicycle mirrors and seat packs… and I take advantage of PayPal to facilitate orders for “The Bicycle Traveler’s Blueprint“ – my eBook on fashionable bicycle touring. With a few of PayPal’s extra superior options I’ve been in a position to arrange my enterprise in order that, for instance, when somebody purchases a replica of “The Bicycle Traveler’s Blueprint” their order is processed, their bank card is billed, an e-mail is distributed to me telling me that I’ve made a sale, and an e-mail is robotically despatched to the customer telling them the way to obtain the e book. As soon as once more, the method is totally computerized and it occurs 24/7, whether or not I’m in mattress, in entrance of the pc or out driving my bike.


A part of what makes The Bicycle Traveler’s Blueprint so profitable is that the e book additionally has an associates program, which is a system I created that permits anybody from anyplace on this planet to advertise the e book and really earn money by telling different folks about it. I take advantage of a bit of piece of software program referred to as iDevAffiliate to run my on-line associates program. With the software program put in, I can have 1000’s of associates (individuals who promote my merchandise) from everywhere in the world. And when these folks ship different folks to my web site, the software program tracks their actions. If one of many folks my associates despatched to my web site buys one in every of my books, the affiliate will get credit score for that sale and she or he makes cash! Once more, the method is totally computerized (due to the iDev software program) and I don’t need to do a factor besides log into the iDev account each couple months and ship out a number of funds to my affiliate companions.


Final 12 months my pc crashed whereas I used to be in Switzerland and I practically noticed my total life get flushed down the drain. I had 1000’s and 1000’s of {dollars} price of precious recordsdata on my pc and if I had misplaced them I’d have been in large, large bother. Fortunately, I had remembered to again up my pc to an exterior arduous drive a pair months prior, so I solely misplaced about 2 months price of labor. After that incident, nonetheless, I turned critically involved about shedding my recordsdata ever once more. And it was round this time that I signed up for a service referred to as Carbonite, which robotically backs up all of the recordsdata on my pc so I by no means have to fret about shedding them. Backing up your vital pc paperwork to an exterior arduous drive is nice, however the factor that makes Carbonite so fantastic is that the backup course of occurs robotically each time you connect with the Web.


You’re in all probability aware of Flickr, proper? Flickr is type of like a social community centered round digital pictures.

These pictures are then sorted into classes, units and collections… and robotically seem within the sidebar of the BicycleTouringPro.com web site.

In a lot the identical manner that Flickr helps to attract visitors again to my web site and set up me as some type of bicycle touring professional, my movies on YouTube do very a lot the identical factor.

As of this writing, the Bicycle Touring Professional YouTube channel has obtained greater than 100,000 views and continues to develop each day. I plan to put up much more movies sooner or later!


And eventually, this listing wouldn’t be full with out mentioning WordPress.

BicycleTouringPro.com and each web site I at the moment personal is managed with WordPress software program. The software program shouldn’t be solely free, straightforward to make use of, and nice at driving visitors by way of the various search engines… but it surely comes with 1000’s of free plug-ins (extra items of software program than can be utilized for a plethora of duties). My favourite function in WordPress, nonetheless, is the truth that I can schedule my weblog posts prematurely and have them posted to the web site robotically. What this implies is that once I go off on a visit, I don’t have to fret about the truth that I’m not in a position to replace my web site as a result of I’m not in entrance of my pc. By scheduling my posts prematurely, I can write a bunch of weblog posts earlier than I go away residence on my travels, schedule them to put up to the location on particular days and at particular instances, after which know that they are going to be posted to the location whereas I’m away. For somebody like myself, who is continually on the highway and away from residence, that is an unimaginable function and one which makes my enterprising nomadic way of life potential.
