Ketogenic: A Lifestyle, Not a Diet

It’s hard to stick to a diet. You have so much to deal with. Hunger and cravings, not to mention expense, all come to mind when you think of the word diet. But the truth is, all that expensive diet food is really harming you. It’s usually over-processed to the point that your body probably doesn’t even know it’s food. It cannot digest it, and you have stomach issues, heartburn, and vacillate between constipation and diarrhea.

But, when you have a good plan, it’s actually not hard to stick to at all. Not if it’s a lifestyle, and certainly not if it’s good food. It’s food you really want to eat, and since ketogenic is not a diet but a lifestyle, you can eat as much as you need to without hunger. What more could anyone want?

=> What Is It and What Makes It a Lifestyle?

A ketogenic lifestyle consists of eating the ketogenic way: low carb, high healthy fat, and moderate protein 99 percent of the time - even if it’s your birthday. What does it mean to eat ketogenic, though? Well, basically you eat in such a way that your body produces ketones. Don’t worry, this is not scary; in fact, ketones can protect your brain from Alzheimer’s and other problems, such as brain fog and memory.

What if you started eating the way your ancestors used to eat? What would that look like? When you consider what your ancestors did not have, namely processed food, you can see what that might look like. The food around was that which was easily available such as berries, wild animals, and vegetables that are easy to grow like spinach, cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower.

Because it was hard to catch food, they also had to ensure everything they ate was as high in fat as possible so that they could keep on enough weight to be healthy. But not fake fat, of course - healthy fat from fruit like coconut oil and olive oil.

Some people also enjoy ghee, which is clarified butter, in this plan. That’s the other thing that is awesome about the ketogenic lifestyle; you do have lots of leeway in what you eat if it follows the main goals, which are to eat low carb, high fat, and moderate protein most of the time.

Processed food is full of refined sugars, unhealthy fats, and chemicals that no one can pronounce and will leave you unsatisfied, always craving more. And guess what; it’s not your fault if you’re always craving more. They made the food that way.

The food you’re eating is designed to cause cravings. Processed food is made to hook you on it, just like opiates. The food scientists know the exact combinations of fat, salt, and sugar to hook you. They’ve found the formula to make every meal into a drug. What’s worse is that this drug will make you fat, unhealthy, prone to diabetes and you’ll likely die earlier than you otherwise would. Even when you think you’re eating small amounts of food called "diet" food, you can be fat and very unhealthy. In point of fact, thin people who are eating a fully processed diet are also very unhealthy and prone to illness. Disease manifests differently in everyone.

Thankfully, the ketogenic diet has become more mainstream. People are taking to it and getting healthier. They’re getting healthier because it’s simple. They don’t have to think too hard to know whether they can have that food or not. Due to this fact, it makes it easy for the ketogenic way of eating to become a full-on lifestyle.

That’s good, because one thing that can ensure that people really change for life, and make eating keto a habit, is to turn it into a lifestyle. When you know you’re going to live this way forever, that you’re not taking breaks, and that you’re not doing it for just the next few weeks until the big party, then you tend to stick to a healthier way of eating because it’s just normal and natural. Since ketogenetic eating is so natural, you’ll agree that it can easily become a lifestyle.

=> Reasons the Ketogenic Lifestyle Is So Effective

The main reason that the ketogenic lifestyle is so effective is simply that it works. When something you do gets results, it’s easy to want to keep doing it. All you have to do is take the first steps, and after that, the proof is in the pudding.

* It’s Easy – Yes there are numerous products out today to make it easier still, but even if you never buy a single prepared item, it’s still easy to eat this way. When you start doing it within a week, you’ll realize that this is easier than what you did before.

* You Don’t Have to Spend Lots of Money – The keto lifestyle is simple and due to that it’s not expensive, so you don’t have to spend a lot of money. You can go out to almost any sit-down restaurant and find something to eat that will work, even if it’s not perfect.

Storytelling Marketing PLR Ebook

Introduction

Story telling can be a powerful component in a marketing strategy. It can be the driving force behind developing, and more importantly, establishing a brand that connects and resonates with your target audience.

The story you tell, and the method in which you use to weave that story throughout your marketing campaigns will be based on your overall goals but one thing remains the same:

Your story will be designed to introduce your brand to the world in a way that helps you stand out and apart from the competition.

Storytelling is a testament to our hard work; it highlights the efforts we’ve taken to create an outstanding brand, and it helps deliver larges pieces of content in a way that people can connect to.

It’s also the easiest way to express emotions and illustrate your commitment to providing value.

There’s nothing more powerful than a carefully crafted story that fulfills the needs of your core market. 

In this special report, we’ll cover the top story-telling methods, how to best use these strategies and how you can use storytelling to strengthen your brand or launch a new one.

Without further delay, let’s begin!

The Art of Storytelling

Content marketing is when you figure out ways to utilize and repurpose content so that it is seen by a larger audience.  Storytelling and content marketing go hand-in-hand. 

With storytelling, you can design a highly-engaged marketing campaign that carries a strong focus.  You’ll use storytelling to give people the information they want to hear to make the decision to follow your brand, purchase your products or connect with your platform.

Thankfully, there’s an easy structure to a creating a compelling storyline for your marketing campaign and it begins with utilizing a variety of delivery methods, including:

Visual and Content-Based:

Visual storytelling would include things like videos, presentations, Webinars or perhaps a series of episodes that bring your viewers on a journey. 

Content based would include everything else, such as articles, blog posts, sales pages and so on.

It’s important to combine both storytelling methods into your marketing campaigns so you’re able to reach a broader audience.  Some people prefer to watch video; others absorb information better in text form.

The anatomy of a successful storytelling campaign will also include a specific series of questions and answers.  We’ll dive deeper into this in the next chapter, but for now, here’s a quick overview of what you need to consider when designing your storytelling campaign.

Questions from your Audience:

This isn’t where you poll your market for their most burning questions, though that can be an effective strategy in coming up with a storyline that connects with your core audience.  But another way to address questions without surveying your market begins with the questions you had when you first ventured in your niche. 

Look at what questions your customers are already asking? What answers your competitors are providing?  And how best to connect with your audience using language they best understand.

Establishing a Timeline:

This is where you draft your story arc around a marketing campaign.  This story will tell your audience how you got from point A to B, why you created your brand (services/products), and how it exists to serve them.

Introduction

We live in an era of information overload. We are bombarded with media, technology, entertainment, and notifications every day. It seems there are hundreds of people and things competing for your attention at any given time. There is no wonder why in the last few years, our attention spans have become shorter and our ability to focus has decreased.

Your time is valuable. Not being able to focus can have a negative effect on how successful we are at work and in our personal lives. Focus is a skill that we develop by training and practice. Productivity requires intention and strategy to help make your time work for you!

Let’s begin by examining time killers that make us less productive. We will discuss tips and techniques to help improve your focus. Then let’s create your plan will that will get you started on improving your productivity now!

Indentify Focus Killers

“Focus can only occur when we have said yes to one option and no to all other options,” says James Clear in his article on Focus.

Time killers are activities that distract us from what we really need to do. They don’t contribute to helping us achieve our goals.

Time killing activities are “noise”. They are distractions that kill our ability to focus. Laser focus requires to limit them as much as possible while you are working.

The key to focus is to choose one task to do and get rid of the rest. Anything that is not essential for completing that task is a distraction.

To help you get started on your journey on maximizing productivity, let’s identify those things that are distracting you from completing your work.
Tomorrow morning when you start work, try taking a written (or mental) note of every time you stop from what you are currently working on to do something, then come back to your work. Keep a tally.

Once they are identified, let’s write those activities down to put in our plan later. We will look for ways to set boundaries to prevent it from happening in the future. Here are a few examples of the most common distractions and how they affect our ability to stay focused.

Your Mobile Device/Phone

It is with you when you wake up, while you are driving, in meetings, at dinner, and by your bedside at night. Our mobile devices have become another appendage to our bodies. Some people find it difficult to be away from their phones, even for a few minutes. Constant notifications from apps and texts can quickly distract you, causing a delay in getting your attention focused back on the task at hand.

To help us be more aware of our phone usage, some mobile devices (like the iPhone) will track home many times you pick up your phone a day. This can be a scary number to see. Once you are aware of how many times you pick up your phone to check notifications, you can start making some adjustments to how often you pick up your phone.

Multi-Tasking

Some people use multi-tasking as a badge of honor to feel accomplished. That person may feel that the busier they are, the more things they are getting done. The truth is we can work on more than one thing at a time, just not as well.

When we can focus on one task at a time, we can give it our full focus. It takes time for our brains to switch between tasks which results in time wasted. Focus on the completion of tasks rather than getting many tasks done quickly. How often are you multi-tasking? Write down if you feel multi-tasking helps you feel accomplished.

Social Media Traps

Have you ever fallen into the rabbit hole of YouTube or become so engaged with Instagram that you found yourself there for hours? It happens often. The chemical rewards we get from our brain when we get likes and comments on our posts keep us engaged.

As consumers, we enjoy viewing the millions of videos and content posted every day. However, if we are working this is a hindrance to our productivity. The best way to stop this time killer is to set boundaries for social media.

Facebook Retargeting Secrets MRR Ebook

Sample Content Preview

Introduction

Whether they originally set out to or not, when Zuckerberg and cohorts built Facebook, they also built perhaps the most powerful marketing platform/tool ever created (only Google gives it a potential run for its money).

Facebook is a place where users will actively, willingly offer up huge amounts of data about themselves. This includes demographic data such as their age, sex, and location – but also deeply personal information such as their hobbies and interests, where they went for dinner last night, and even their income bracket.

What’s more, is that they also provide us with a huge network of other potential users that might share the same interests or have access to the same things.

This matters to us as marketers because it allows us to TARGET our audience. And as you will learn over the course of this eBook, targeted marketing is by far the most powerful.

As Facebook grew in size and functionality, its reach and usefulness as a tool for digital marketers grew in kind.

Meanwhile though, in other corners of the net, other new marketing tools would also emerge. Google was the first to introduce ‘retargeting’ to a large audience – a concept that helped advertisers reach the most targeted and qualified leads – people who had already demonstrated an interest in their brand and even a willingness to spend money.

That this feature would eventually come to Facebook was inevitable. And when it did, a perfect match was made.

Retargeting on Facebook is perhaps THE most effective way to reach a primed and ready consumer base and to make sales as a result.

In short, retargeting allows you to advertise more than once to the same people that have previously engaged with your brand –

even spent time on checkout pages, or having added specific items to their shopping cart.

The best part is that Facebook actually goes beyond the likes of Google by offering an even more powerful version of this feature – letting you remarket in numerous different ways, to numerous different types of lead and customer.

This tends to fall under the broader category of Facebook’s ‘Custom Audiences’, which can be custom for a variety of reasons.

To put it simply, if you have any product you want to sell online – whether digital or physical – Facebook retargeting might be one of the most powerful and effective ways to do just that. And not only that, but you’ll also find that this is one of the best tools for promoting a cause, increasing brand awareness, and growing your audience and your authority.

The best marketers know that success online is a matter of human psychology, numbers, and knowing the right tools. If you can invest correctly in Facebook retargeting, then you can see that money returned in huge quantities. And in this book, you’ll learn precisely how to make the most of this type of marketing to potentially grow your audience and increase your profits.

Chapter 1: Why Facebook Retargeting Works

So, the basic idea behind Facebook retargeting, is that you’re able to ‘remarket’ to people who have already spent time on your site, or even on specific pages from within your site. This is powerful stuff, because it means that you can market to warm, hot, and qualified leads.

Let’s rewind for a moment and think about what that means. Normally, when you show someone an advert, you do so while knowing very little about them, and having had no contact with them previously. You might be browsing the web and then notice an advert for something that you have never heard of. A nice pair of shoes for instance, a holiday, a useful service.

Problem is, you just bought a pair of shoes, you’re just back from holiday, and you have no use for the service because you don’t have a house (for example).

So, chances are that you’re simply going to scroll right past that ad and not give it any further thought. This was then essentially a wasted investment for the advertiser who put that advert there in the first place.

That’s why a targeted ad is theoretically worth so much more than a regular ad. When an ad is targeted, it means that it is being purposefully aimed only at people who are likely to be interested in whatever the advert is for – at least based on their demographics and statistics.

So, for example, adverts for home cleaning services will only be shown to people who actually own homes. Likewise, adverts for athletic sports shoes will only be shown to people who own athletic sports shoes.

All of this ensures that the money is not wasted nearly as often. But it’s still not perfect. Because it’s still advertising to someone that you’ve had no prior contact with – who has never heard of your brand.

Why do you buy Apple products? Or Nike products? Why do you use Netflix?

Because you know the brand. You’ve learned what they have to offer and you know that they typically provide a certain level of quality.

You would buy a hugely expensive tablet from Apple because of the trust and authority they have built up over decades. Btu now imagine that someone comes up to you in the street and offers you a thousand dollar computer that has no branding on it. Would you be willing to pay a thousand dollars for that? Would you trust that it works?

Even if you’re in the market for a tablet?

No.

It only takes a minute to go to the Apple website, or another retailer that stocks those devices – such as Amazon. So why would you spend money on an unknown commodity?

That’s why big companies will spend millions on advertising that is designed to increase brand visibility first. From that point, the customers will then come to them rather than vice versa. Most of us smaller marketers don’t have that kind of budget though, so we don’t have the luxury to build that kind of awareness and visibility. That’s why we instead use content marketing.

Content marketing is marketing that uses blog posting, YouTube, social media and whatever else in order to create a relationship with the customer. To demonstrate that we know what we’re talking about, that we are trustworthy, and that we are able to offer something unique.

If you read an incredibly blow post about fitness and that author then recommends a supplement at the end of the post, you’re now much more likely to be successful.

Gluten Free Lifestyle MRR Ebook

Introduction

You visit the doctor regularly to maintain your health. That’s certainly smart. Before your next appointment, however, consider this: when was the last time your doctor asked about your diet?

Although physicians are perfectly aware of the connection between our health and the food we put into our body, this is a question they rarely, if ever, pose. They appear to be more interested in prescribing medications than treating and preventing health problems in a more natural and effective way. This is especially disconcerting as more and more people suffer from wheat sensitivity, allergy, or celiac disease.

The problem with wheat is caused by gluten, one of the proteins found in modern-day wheat. It can damage the smaller intestine and make digesting wheat difficult or impossible. It can cause fatigue, nausea, diarrhea and other, more serious discomforts, such as damaging the small intestine. Celiac disease is serious, and physicians need to start paying attention.

Processed wheat, which is found everywhere, isn’t healthy for anyone. For people with celiac disease, it can be a daily nightmare. That is why going gluten-free is becoming increasingly popular. People are learning the effects of modern wheat and are starting to take control of their own health.

For people who are sensitive or allergic to wheat, going gluten-free can be life-changing. It can help them rid the body of irritating toxins and help them function normally again.

For others, who are not gluten-sensitive, abstaining from gluten is a way of eating healthier, feeling better, and having more energy.

Food matters. What we consume is critical to our health. The fact is, gluten adds little to our lives but can cause considerable damage. Going gluten-free is a return to eating in a way that promotes optimum health and wellbeing. For anyone who believes that we have been eating wheat for thousands of years without a problem, you will soon learn why that is incorrect.

Even for those who are not suffering from celiac disease or wheat sensitivity, a gluten-free diet can be a prevention against disease. Gluten is known to cause serious inflammations, and inflammations can increase the risk of arthritis and coronary diseases. Using food to prevent the onset of these problems enables us to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. This makes far more sense than treating diseases with medications that can have harmful side effects.

Gluten is all around us, which can make going gluten-free quite a challenge. With so many food items made of wheat, barley, or rye, all of which contain gluten, and with more food products containing hidden wheat, the idea of eating gluten-free may seem like deprivation. Quite the contrary. You can still eat the cookies, cakes, and pasta you love. You will simply be preparing them differently.

If you are suffering from celiac disease, going gluten-free is a must. But other intestinal issues, such as diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome have also been relieved with a gluten-free diet. Researchers are linking more and more gastrointestinal problems to gluten.

In addition, we’ll take a look at the surprising connection between gluten-free, ADHD, and autism.

You will soon discover the options available to you, and how to make gluten-free eating a part of your healthy lifestyle.

Chapter 1 Wheat and Celiac Disease – The Downside of Gluten

Wheat has been around for thousands of years. It’s easy to grow and quite nutritious. It was probably one of the first food items our forefathers gathered to feed themselves. Wheat was truly life-giving.

For all these thousands of years, the whole grain kernel was ground and used to bake bread or prepare cereals. Fresh, whole grain has always been a part of our diet without being harmful to our health.

It’s not until the 1960s and 70s that people began to realize that the wheat they are consuming is making them sick.

What happened? Have our bodies changed? No. It’s the wheat we have relied on for thousands of years that has been changed and twisted into something our forefathers wouldn’t recognize.

Industrialization has been good to mankind, but it hasn’t always been kind to the food we consume.

Let’s start with white flour, the first food that we would call “processed.” In 1870, the steel roller mill allowed wheat to be separated to refine the wheat into a white powder. “White” flour was considered fancy.

So, to meet consumer demand, white flour was produced en masse, and the rest of the kernel, the nutritious part, was tossed aside. Within 10 years, all flour was white and seriously lacking in nutrients. Ten years was all the time it took to change thousands of years of nourishment into something “fancy” and lacking in many nutrients.

That was only the beginning, however. By the 1950s, technology once again let us “improve” our wheat. New techniques allowed for genetically-altered seeds, fertilizers, and harmful pesticides to increase wheat production. Again, everyone rejoiced. More wheat for everyone! Cake for one and all! While the production of wheat increased, its nutritional value was being mangled into something unrecognizable. At the same time, inflammations and immune diseases were being linked directly to this new, “improved” wheat.

Anyone who believes that gluten-free is just a modern phase is half-right. It is indeed something new and modern. But it is not a phase. An increasing number of people are suffering from the effects of modern wheat and refined flour.

Facebook Ads MRR Ebook

It doesn't matter if you run a well-established business or you are managing a startup. It doesn't matter how much of a budget you're working with. Like it or not, and believe it or not, the main way you can make people become aware of your company's brand, and eventually consume the products or services your company offers, is through advertising.

Free Advertising Doesn't Exist

Let's put it this way, you can't be in two places at once. If you're spending all this time and effort trying to brand and promote your business the ‘free’ way, what if you're doing something else that produce ten times the result?

You Cannot Ignore Facebook Ads

What's so awesome about Facebook ads besides its relative low cost is the technology behind it. Again, you may be operating with a fairly small budget. That's okay. Because with Facebook ads, you can leverage the highly sophisticated "social snooping" and "personal profiling" technology Mark Zuckerberg brought to the table.

Did you know that when you log into Facebook, you're legally giving them the right to figure you out? I know it sounds creepy, but Facebook has so much technology it can figuratively get in your head.

It is no surprise that a lot of people consume lots of random pieces of content of Facebook, only to find themselves, sooner or later, being shown ads that seem so personal. It's as if they're thinking about certain things, and an ad would show up that matches those concerns, fears or needs.

There's nothing magical about this. This is a testament to just how robust Facebook's technology is. This book gives you a step by step walk-through of the different ad opportunities currently available on the Facebook ad platform.

As you probably already know, there is no such thing as a perfect solution. Any option will have its own list of advantages and disadvantages. Facebook is not immune to this fact.

The Benefits of Facebook Advertising

• Facebook has a robust and powerful high-tech advertising targeting system
• Facebook is still relatively cheap
• Facebook has so much ad inventory that, depending on the kind of campaign you run, it is still very affordable compared to competing platforms like Google Adwords
• Facebook helps you engage your customers
• FB ads can also deliver the bottom line

Not only can Facebook help you stay relevant with your target audience members, but you can also plug in these ads to your actual sales funnel. They can, with the right strategy and the right sales funnel design, produce conversions. These are sales. These have an actual impact on your business' profitability.

• You can break into new markets

Your FB campaign gets people familiar enough with your new market focus that you don't come off as a completely new player.

• Facebook can drive leads
• Facebook can boost your SEO

Since Google launched the RankBrain algorithm update, click-throughs have begun to play an outsized role in Google's ranking algorithm. This means that when people are clicking your link over others, you're more likely to rise up the listings.

How is this possible with Facebook? Well, since Facebook campaigns make people more familiar with your brand name, your domain name, as well as your site name, you're not a complete stranger.

With everything else being equal, when people see your brand show up in search results, they're more likely to click it compared to a brand that they haven't heard of before. So, this has an aggregate effect.

And if this plays out with enough people over an extended period of time, don't be surprised if your organic rankings on Google also increase.

• Facebook can help you close deals

If you're running a retargeting campaign on Facebook, Facebook will show your ad to users who’ve been to your site. It's not unusual for them to realize that they still need whatever it was that they came to your site for. A lot of them come back to your website and close the deal.

How effective is this strategy? According to many marketing surveys, up to 40% of buyers come back and buy because of this technology .

• You get access to a very robust advertising system

Facebook efficiently slices and dices its audience demographics. If you target one person and that person typically buys from you, you can use that person's profile and apply it to other people who share the same profile to hopefully get the same results. You don't get that robust kind of targeting technology and capabilities with other platforms.

The Downside of Facebook Advertising

Here are just a few of the disadvantages Facebook has. It is by no means a perfect advertising platform. Not even by a long shot. You need to be aware of its downsides.

Facebook Campaign Success Turns Heavily on Ad Quality

If your ads are very vague, irrelevant or simply send the wrong message, don't be all that shocked if they don't produce the results you're looking for.

Introduction

Meditation can completely change your life.

While countless products, remedies, hacks, and lifestyle changes all promise to hold the ‘answer’, only meditation really comes close to actually delivering on that promise. And this is no coincidence: it’s simply because meditation is the only method among these that focuses on helping you to improve yourself. On getting you to dig deep, and to change the way you approach life and situations. It gives you more command over your own mind and will, and helps you to become the best version of yourself.

Meditation helps you to rise above stress and worry, thereby finding peace in your everyday – and improving your happiness, health, and general wellbeing to a huge degree. Moreover though, meditation can also help to improve your performance by bringing stress under control. It can help you to focus your attention like a laser, to become unflappable in a crisis, and to tap into reserves of creativity, compassion, and wisdom that you never knew you had.

The problem is that meditation is too often thought of as this ‘mystical’ practice, that has strong ties to religion, spirituality, and even mysticism. Many people will therefore be put off before they even start.

Others might recognize the growing acceptance of meditation as a proven, scientific method for encouraging positive changes in the brain at a biological level – but still find themselves daunted. How do you begin to start? How can you calm a mind that doesn’t want to be still?

How can you possibly find the time?

This book is going to explore all of those things and more. Over the course of this tome, you will discover the major types of meditation, how they are different, and how to use them. What’s more, is that you will learn how to employ those forms of meditation in a manner that is practical, easy, and highly effective.

We will be demystifying what should be a very simple and powerful tool. By the end, the power will be in your hands to take the core principles of meditation and mindfulness, and to apply them in a manner that applies to you.

In this book, you will learn:

• Where stress comes from and why you need to deal with it
• The different types of meditation and what they are each for
• How to start meditation in an easy and convenient way
• How to progress and improve in your meditation practice
• How to use mindfulness in everyday life
• How to use meta cognition to understand your own thoughts
• How to overcome anxiety and stress with CBT and cognitive restructuring
• How meditation affects the brain
• How to improve your lifestyle for even greater calm

Chapter 1 - Why You Are Always Stressed – And Why it Needs to Stop

Many of us are unaware of just how serious a problem stress is. We live in a semi-permanent state of anxiety and arousal, but the most shocking part is that we act as this is okay – normal even.

After all, everyone else we know is stressed too, so how can it be a big problem?

In fact though, stress is a very serious problem that will not only prevent you from fully enjoying your life in the short term – but may make you seriously ill over time.

Where Does Stress Come From?

You don’t need to look hard in order to find where all this stress is coming from in our modern lives. Anything that causes stress is what we refer to as a ‘stressor’, and these are all around us, all the time. Some are physical, while others are mental.

Consider the way you start your day: by being woken up with a start in the pitch black, by a bleeping noise. Did you know that we chose beeping for alarms because it sounds unnatural? That means that the brain fires up on red alert, and sends panic signals by releasing cortisol and adrenaline into your body. You’ve only just woken up, and you’re already probably suffering from whiplash!

Then you rush to get ready, heart racing as you worry about what happens if your late – and perhaps dread whatever stressful thing you need to handle that day in the office. Then you head off on your commute, people pushing past you and walking toward you. Horns blaring, smoke thick in the air, and bright billboards flashing in your eyes. All these things, vying for your attention. All of them, triggering more spikes in excitatory neurotransmitters.

At work, you no doubt need to deal with office politics, with deadlines, with people shouting at you down the phone… with the potential prospect of losing your job if you don’t do well, always looming over you. The unnatural light you’re bathed in meanwhile triggers even more arousal, with none of the nourishing effects of vitamin D and fresh air.

Breaking the Paycheck-to-Paycheck Struggle

If you are living paycheck to paycheck, you’re in good company. Some studies report that 75 percent of people in the USA do this. In fact, most people cannot deal with a $500 unexpected expense without borrowing the money or dipping into savings. What’s worse is that according to CNBC.com, only about 29 percent of the population in the USA has at least six months' living expenses saved. All these facts are simply to let you know that you’re not alone.

Most people live paycheck to paycheck. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can break the paycheck to paycheck struggle once you identify the problem, set a budget, and learn how to spend less on what you need and what you want. It’s all about living within your means, while also identifying the things that will make your life a little bit easier and happier without breaking the bank.

=> Identifying the Scope of the Problem

The very first thing to do if you want to fix your struggle is to identify the scope of the problem. There could be one or more major reasons that you’re struggling to live paycheck to paycheck. Not everyone is struggling due to lack of funds. Some people struggle due to lack of planning and simply overspending. When you figure out your issue, you can correct it. Here are some common reasons for struggling.

* Lack of Income – In many cases, money problems do not come from overspending but instead from lack of income. If you’re underemployed, or you simply are not making enough money to live the way you need or want to live, you’ll need to figure out a plan to remedy that situation. You can get a part-time job, freelance part time, or sell off some assets to pay down bills to fix this problem.

* Overspending – Some people have enough money on paper, but due to not paying attention to a budget at all they overspend. If you have credit card debt, you may belong to this category. Credit cards are great tools but not if you keep any balance on them long term.

* Credit Card Debt – Most credit cards now have standard double-digit interest rates, which makes them horrible deals. What’s worse is that some cards have fees too. A family with an income of just $40K a year can often end up with thousands of dollars in credit card debt over the years, with no way to ever pay them off. $30K's worth of credit debt on various cards can easily add up to over $1K a month in minimum payments if you’re not careful. Add it all up so you know where you stand. Check your interest rates too.

* Too Much House – Did you buy more house than you can afford? This is not unusual in the USA where it’s simple to buy a house without a down payment, and the interest rates are still reasonable. However, banks often approve you for far more than you can really pay. They’re so focused on the mortgage that they forget the other expenses such as insurance, taxes, and upkeep.

* Lack of Savings – Not having savings is expensive. It can cause one to borrow money even from payday lenders, which is a trap better avoided. Lack of savings can cost you so much money. You won’t be able to take advantage of deals that come along if you have no savings, nor deal with a minor unexpected expense such as a vehicle breakdown.

* Illness – If you have a lot of medical expenses and this is the reason you are living paycheck to paycheck, that is hard. You cannot just magically make yourself better or skip the doctor. It is one reason people are in debt to start with. In fact, most US bankruptcies are due to medical bills among people with insurance. (Source: AARP)

* Poor Credit – You can have poor credit even if you did nothing wrong. Having a low income, no credit cards, or low income and high credit cards even if you pay them religiously each month, can still result in low credit numbers. When you have poor credit, everything costs more - from rental deposits to interest on other loans.

* No Plan – Many people who struggle to make it between paychecks often have no plan at all. The main reason for this is simply overwhelm. It’s just emotional and difficult to put into words how emotionally damaging money issues can be. For this reason, you need a plan.

Once you realize what your issues are, you can set up a plan to combat those problems. Until you know, you can’t do anything. It will take complete and utter honesty from you to yourself and anyone you are relying on to help you to overcome the situation. But you can overcome it if you plan to.

=> Setting a Budget

Once you have checked where you are and noted where you want to go, it’s time to set a budget. When you set your budget, it's important to think about your needs, your wants, and the future, which involves savings according to your goals and plans. This can be overwhelming depending on your issues, but keep reading because there is an idea for everyone so that you can not just make ends meet but also thrive.

1WHAT'S DIGG?

Digg.com is a growing website. You may have heard of it. Digg.com is what is called a social networking website. As an Internet marketer, if you hope to stand out in the world of Internet marketing, you will need to get up close and personal with websites like this since social networking (also called social marketing) is one of the best ways to grow your business.

Let's go back, what is Digg? Digg is a community of individuals who come together to share news stories. That is the key word to remember: News. One of the foundations of Digg.com is that the stories submitted to it need to be a news piece. If you do not submit this type of piece to the website, chances are good that you will get banned or your articles will be removed. Luckily, if done right, just about anything can be a news piece.

HOW DOES DIGG.COM WORK?

If you take a look at the website, you will learn just about all you need to learn about this location. Simply put, you will create a free account then submit posts to the organization that you think are newsworthy. Then, anyone else can "Digg" them. This promotes them to a higher level on the website. By doing this, your submitted content will move up in the website's listings. The result is that more people will read it and promote your piece.

Why do you want to use something like this? Digg.com allows you to grow your business rapidly. When you submit something to Digg.com, you place it in front of a large and ever-growing crowd of people. The more people that actually Digg your post, the more people that will see the post. This creates interest in whatever you are doing, talking about, or otherwise promoting.

Take a few minutes to explore the website. Sign up for a free Digg.com account. There is nothing to worry about in terms of signing up since the service is free and they do not ask for any personal information from you. Now that you have this in place, you can begin to use the service.

Take a few minutes before you get started to look around. Read some of the highest-ranking Digg.com articles. This is the format and style of writing you will want to submit to the website. Of course, keep in mind that it will take a bit of work to get on that front page.

WHAT'S SOCIAL MARKETING?

Before you can understand what Digg can do for your website, it is best to understand what social marketing is in the first place. Here is a rundown of what social marketing does.

1. You interact with other people online.

2. You are friendly, make friends, and get to know other people.

3. They get to know you. You do not have to be overly personal, just friendly and genuinely interested in what they have to say.

4. When you find someone that appears to be interesting, you can visit their website, learn about them, read their work, and promote them as you see fit.

5. They do the same for you.

6. You are finding like-minded individuals who are most likely interested in what you have to offer. The benefit here is that oftentimes, those you befriend online turn into some of your best customers, no matter what your industry is.

Social marketing websites like Digg.com help you to connect with others in this way. You get to meet other people who are interested in what you have to say. You get to meet those who may be interested in buying from you too.

For example, let's say that you have a website on college loans. You do not want to use social marketing websites like Digg.com to promote sales pitches for student loans. This would be against the terms of service for such a website anyway. Additionally, it would not get any attention from those people who you’d want to have visit and read your website.

Instead, you write articles on college life. Perhaps you talk about the interest rates that are dropping or the ease of getting student loans through a unique program. The goal is to make it newsworthy. Your audience is the same as it would be for your sales pitch on student loans: College students, and most likely, their parents as well.

When you submit the content to a social website like Digg.com, you put it into a market where anyone can find it. Not only are there members of Digg.com that are already interested in these topics, but this website also ranks very well in the search engines, meaning that others will find your content too.

The nice thing about Digg.com is that you can include links back to your website. Therefore, when the individual is done reading about the new student loan program, they can head over to your website (through a link you have provided) and learn more. How simple is that?

In actuality, they will simply come to your website to learn more, which allows you to sell to them as you would any other visitor.

As you can see, this can be very lucrative for you, should you invest the time in social marketing. It is a time investment, but the boost of traffic you get to your website can be essential. Still, you do need to learn how to use tools like Digg.com to help you to accomplish these goals.

How To Use Social Networks To Build A List

Easy Networking

Social networks have made building and widening your social contacts extremely easy. In the past, you might have had to attend numerous functions and paying for gas, food, and clothing just to show up and hand out a few business cards that later got tossed. With online social networking, the costs of networking are zero, but the rewards are immeasurable. Creating a list of social contacts online can lead to opportunities worldwide, something that local networking could never do for you.

LET PEOPLE COME TO YOU

Instead of trying to push people into getting acquainted with you or your company, wouldn't it be great if you could get up each morning and find seven to ten new people wanting to befriend or follow you? This is completely doable with social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Once you establish a profile and a following, just your everyday activities online can draw people to you without you having to go out and find them. Even if you do choose to find people first, it's still far easier to connect with them online and far less intrusive than trying to schedule a meeting, a phone date, or any other old-fashioned method of networking.

WHICH SOCIAL NETWORK SHOULD YOU JOIN?

You've heard of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and mostly forgotten MySpace but which is the best to join? The answer to that is that you can and should join at least three of these networks, depending on your demographic. The more you join, the better and the wider your exposure; however, not every social network will match up to your business profile. MySpace, for instance, tends to be visited by a younger crowd than Facebook and Twitter. If you're marketing to teenagers, then it's a great place to network, but if you're more into college-age professionals, then Facebook will be a better match for you. LinkedIn is for any working professional, although some people use it to locate jobs when they're in the market for that too because of the number of working professionals on it.

Twitter is in a class all by itself. It can appeal to many different groups of people, and it is also the easiest platform to generate a large following on. It may take a little while to get used to it, but getting on Twitter can help you create a large social network in as little as one month if you do it right. Imagine having close to 1000 followers in little more than a month? If only 1/10th of those people look at your services or offerings when you post, you will have 100 new eyeballs to market to. Let's be clear, however, that marketing or building a list on social networking has to follow some guidelines that we will discuss in the next section.

The Rules Of The Game

Social networks have special rules that you must follow to keep your account active. Administrators frown on spamming people with unsolicited emails and other types of commercial activities. If your goal is to build a list for commercial purposes, it's still doable; it just has to be done more casually than you would on your own website. Self-promotion is allowed, but any time you take an email off of someone's social networking site and add it to your email autoresponder campaigns, you are spamming them, unless they offer you permission to market to them first. Harvesting emails from these sites is thus very difficult, and this is done deliberately.

BUILD YOUR LISTS WITHIN THE NETWORK FIRST

That doesn't mean that you don't want people to befriend or follow you on these sites. It means that you have to take care as to how you end up harvesting their email addresses. Just because someone befriends or follows you doesn't mean that they are open to your marketing campaign and want to receive commercial solicitations. In fact, if you do send them that information, they're likely to report you as a spammer, and you can have your account revoked. Thus, the best thing to do is to start by building your lists within the network without harvesting the emails provided there directly. You can still post status updates that promote your business or offerings, but direct emails of this variety will have to wait until later.

MOVE THEM OFF TO AN INTERMEDIARY SITE

You should have an intermediary site ready to capture their email address later. It can be a blog that allows them to subscribe. It can be a website that isn't that commercial. It can even be some article marketing site where they can land, read some more of your content, and then follow the resource box links back to your website. As long as the final destination offers them a chance to subscribe to your email marketing lists via some free offer, then you will have permission to market to them off of the social networking sites, where you can be a little more straightforward.

HOW TO MARKET TO SOCIAL NETWORKING CONNECTION

Before then, you will want to create a highly targeted list of friends and followers who have the potential to follow you back from the social networking sites to your other websites. You can do this by carefully crafting profiles that appeal to your demographics and updating your status updates with information that draws attention from that demographic. As you continue to do these two activities, more and more people will find you, and you will have a wider exposure.

Getting Targeted Lists

You don't just want to build a large list of people who have nothing to do with your market niche; you want to have a list of people whose interests mean that they might want to buy your products and services later on. Social networks are excellent mediums for creating targeted lists because it's easy to see what people's interests are via their searchable profiles, and they can see yours too!

USING YOUR PROFILE TO ATTRACT THE RIGHT DEMOGRAPHIC

The first step to getting a targeted list together is to clearly project the right image and interests in your own profile. To do that, you want to fill out the profile as completely as possible. You also want to use your real name, as this profile should be as authentic as possible. For Facebook, for instance, you would want to add as many details of books or movies relevant to your market niche to attract the right demographic. In Twitter, you would want to give as many keywords that are relevant to the niche you are marketing as possible in the 140-character description of your profile. In LinkedIn, you would also want to give a good, accurate description of your interests and accomplishments as they relate to the market niche that you are marketing to.

FINDING OTHERS WHO HAVE SIMILAR INTERESTS

Once you've got your own profile filled out, you can start searching via the keywords you've used to find others who are in your market niche and invite them to follow or befriend you back. In Facebook, they track everyone with similar interests, so all you have to do is to click on the link in any of the categories in your Info tab, and you'll get a listing of people who have similar interests.

On Twitter, it's just as easy to find people who have similar interests by using the Twitter search engine and looking up keywords. The Twitter search engine is separate from Twitter and can be found at http://search.twitter.com. You won't just be able to locate people via their profile keywords, but also via their tweets.

Facebook and LinkedIn also have groups that you can join that can lead you to people with similar interests. You can even create your own group if that's something you want to do. By networking with people who are in the same group as you are, you will be able to build your list fairly quickly. People like to network with people of similar interests, and this works well when you are trying to market to a specific niche.
