100 Free Online Survey Sites To Make Money

October 16, 2017 Francisco Anes 0

Before I started blogging, one of the ways I made extra cash was by doing free online surveys. I didn’t get rich from taking these online surveys, but I made a good side income by spending a little bit of my time every day. Since then, I’ve been doing surveys every month. The number of surveys I do depends on how much free time I have. Some months I end up making $150 and others $400. My record was something near $500 in three weeks. After doing some in-depth research and trying over 300 Read more […]

How I Quadrupled My Pinterest Traffic in 7 Days

September 26, 2017 Francisco Anes 10

It’s been over a year since I started using Pinterest to promote my blog. Today Pinterest brings 90% of the traffic to my blog. When I first joined Pinterest, I couldn’t get any traffic. It wasn’t until I started using Tailwind, that I saw an increase in my traffic. I wrote a case study on how I went from 0 to 250 daily visits using Tailwind. The truth is that after a few months using Tailwind, I felt that my traffic stopped growing. It was a good traffic (6,000 page views/month) but I wanted Read more […]

Passive income is a great way to earn money without being actively involved.  This means that you can get money while you are sleeping, on holidays or spending time with your kids. As you can see by the title of my blog, I’m a passive income fanatic. I love the idea of doing all the hard work now so I can enjoy the success later. Passive income has turned my life around.

When I started blogging, I didn’t know much about traffic. I thought that by writing quality content I would receive hundreds of visits to my blog. It didn’t work. I read in many blogs that “content is king” and “length is strength” and that writing amazing unique long posts will attract new visitors. But I was wondering, visitors from where? Nobody knew about my blog. I blogged for quite a few months trying to don’t think much about traffic. I followed many strategies from other bloggers but I Read more […]

Why You Should Build an Emergency Fund for your Family

I truly believe that you need an emergency fund. Not just you, but everybody! An emergency fund is cash that you’ve put aside with the intention of helping you keep your normal life when an emergency in life shows up. When you have nothing saved, any unexpected expense becomes an emergency that has to be paid with your credit card (and everybody knows what happens with credit card debt!). Don’t get me wrong, credit cards can be great if used in the right way (I get a lot of travel Read more […]
