3 Millionaire Success Stories from Lesser Known Millionaires

Published

on

When it comes to making money online and helping you discover the opportunity that lies within in the world of entrepreneurship, I’d love to be that inspiration that gets you to take that first step. At the same time, I also realize that ‘online marketing’ or the concept of ‘making money online’ might not be for everyone.

This is exactly what I launched my Rise of the Entrepreneur podcast, to help share success stories from different entrepreneurs around the world — while also helping you discover any new opportunities through such stories and interviews as well.

Keeping with this theme, I thought it would be a fun idea to showcase a few more success stories from different millionaires around the world that you likely haven’t already heard of. Each of these millionaires has their own unique stories, struggles and eventual success which lead them to where they are today.

Sam Ovens Makes Millions Helping Property Managers

Sam Ovens is a 26-year old entrepreneur from Auckland, New Zealand who dropped out of college to ultimately start two successful companies of his own by the age of 24… while also working out of his parent’s garage. Having found success with digital marketing and managing a large ad spend on behalf of his clients, Sam was able to turn that expertise and skill into a successful consulting company of his own.

In addition to his consulting business, Sam is also the CEO and Founder of SnapInspect, a property inspection app that helps property management companies cut costs and better manage their properties.

To learn more about Sam Ovens and what he’s currently working on, be sure to check out this recent article on his wealth building tips for Americans.

Lani Lazzari Finds Financial Success in an Offline World

Lani Lazzari is a great example of someone who was able to make a boat load of money and creating a real business, without thinking about just using the internet or focusing on technology. If the name at all seems familiar, it’s likely because Lani was a participant on the infamous Shark Tank (4th season). At the time, Lani was just 18 years old and made all-natural skin care scrubs for sensitive skin as a hobby until her junior year of high school. It was then that Lazzari decided to take her Simple Sugars business into the Shark Tank and see what would happen.

Long story short, Marc Cuban decided to invest in her business ($100,000 in return for 33% equity) — which generated over $200,000 in sales within just 4 hours of the episode airing on TV. Be sure to read up on her full story and the business is now doing over $3 million in sales per year, while also now having over 700 retail locations across the country.

The 10-Year Old Who Makes $1.3 Million a Year on YouTube

EvanTubeHD is a name you probably haven’t heard of unless you are kid, or parents with children. Nonetheless, he is yet another entrepreneur in the making, who is already raking in millions of dollars per year. Oh, yea… I forgot to mention, he’s still not even a teenager yet — which is a majority component to why he has found so much success online.

Evan is one of the most sought after names on YouTube, and not just by people who are viewing his videos. Big name brands and toy companies would jump at the chance to have one of their products reviews in his online videos, and are willing to pay big bucks to make it happen. However, it’s not just sponsorship money that is making Evan and his family (also his video editors) rich, it’s also the massive subscribers and viewership he has online as well… to the tune of more than 3.4 million subscribers on YouTube.

For a full breakdown on how Evan has been growing his massive following on YouTube and raking in millions in the process, be sure to check out this older article on Business Insider, and this more recent one on DailyMail.

5 Reasons Why Your Business Should Be Writing Blogs Right Now

Published

on

Blogging is a great way to get your website noticed and generate more traffic and sales. 86% of companies use a blog on their websites, so you can’t afford to miss out.

You may think that blogs aren’t that important, or that they don’t make a lot of difference to your business. But they are a lot more effective than you may think.

Blogging can increase your lead generation by 67%. Whether you’re a new or established business, this can prove invaluable. Here are 5 reasons your business needs to start writing blogs now.

1. Generate Traffic

Blog posts add more content to your website and thus attract more people to visit your site. Creating web content means that you can direct your readers to other parts of your website.

This means you can write a post about one of your products or services and use yours as an example. When readers discover this, you have a greater chance of boosting sales.

2. Boost SEO

When it comes to marketing your business, SEO is king. SEO determines where your website ranks on search engine results. In turn, it impacts how many people find you.

There are a lot of things that affect your SEO. Things like a fully optimized website and using the right links can make a real difference. Hook Agency says that having the right SEO can double or even triple your traffic from search engines.

Once you have your website sorted, blog content is next. The more blogs you write, the better the SEO. Use popular keywords and terms that your audience would search for. This will make your posts rank higher on search engines and get customers your way.

3. Create a Brand Voice

There are a lot of company blogs out there which may be interesting, but they have no distinctive voice. When they have no voice, they all blend into one.

But if you write blogs with a specific voice, you make an impression. When people can recognise your writing style, they recognise your company.

4. Showcase Your Services

When it comes to your business, you’re the expert. You know all about your own products and services, so use your blog to show off this knowledge!

Explain what you offer and what you can do for your customers. People want brands to know exactly what they’re selling and it makes you more reliable.

It also serves as a free way to advertise your business. You can write as much or as little as you want on the services you’re offering.  

5. You Stay Ahead of the Curve

When you give your website a blog, you’re also future proofing your business. Those who don’t have blogs are lagging behind and missing out on a lot of great opportunities.

It gives you the chance to be creative and boost your business in a whole new way. You can also add other media like videos and photos to your posts to boost your SEO even further.

Chances are, you’ll find blogging very fun. Regular content on your site gives your business a firm presence and will keep you on the SEO map for longer.

Quick and Effective Tips to Maximize Speed of your Website or Blog

Published

on

Few things are worse than when you click over to a new website or blog, and then it’s loading slow as anything. With everyone having an extremely short attention span, and so many options for other websites and entertainment online, a fast loading website is a must for every blogger, brand, or business on the internet.

There are also many benefits associated with a fast loading site, beyond just user experience. Google is now penalizing sites that take too long to load, and boosting up other sites that a mobile-optimized and running super fast.

Depending on how technical your design or WordPress skills might be, the process of speeding up your site and maximizing it’s optimization might vary. To help with this process, I’ve listed a few of the best working methods below.

Optimize your Homepage to Load Quickly

With the homepage being one of the most vital parts of your website or blog, you should be doing everything possible to make sure it loads quickly. Different things can be done to speed up your homepage such as lowering the number of posts on the main page, minimizing applications and widgets from third-party sites, and also optimizing your images so they are either loading as a smaller sized file or through a CDN service. It’s also a good idea to use an SEO friendly theme or template, as these are more often cleaner with their coding and already optimized right out of the box.

Use an Effective Caching Plugin

If you are using a CMS like WordPress or blogger, then using an effective cashing plugin can contribute nicely in the process of making sure your site is loading as fast as possible. Since caching is an apparatus for a temporary storage of web pages to diminish bandwidth and to improve page loading performance as well, it saves the server’s time to make web pages load faster. Caching plugins are easy to install and use. All you need to do is perform some research online to see which plugin is best for your site, then click a few buttons to have it installed right within WordPress. Once this is done, it’s usually just a matter of copying the account number of your CDN and letting the hosting provider and WordPress plugin do its work.

Use CDN (content delivery network)

We’ve already referenced content delivery networks or CDNs, a few times now. The way these solutions work is that they host a version of your site on their server, and then loads the content from another server that is closest to that individual’s location. More and more site owners and bloggers are using CDNs not only to improve page load speed but to provide users with a great experience to make them stay longer on the website. Also mentioned earlier, this can help with how well a site ranks in Google, while also moving your site above the competition. Moreover, if one of your server locations is overloaded due to huge traffic and visitors, then users can automatically be switched to a new server location to enjoy fast loading website experience.

Improve Your Hosting Plan

If you have a slow loading website or blog, it’s likely due to your hosting plan. If you are pushing a lot of traffic through your site and making money in the process, you should definitely upgrade from a shared server. Shared hosting is often fine for new site owners and bloggers, but as your site gains more attention, backlinks, and traffic, it will also likely be using more server resource. On a shared server, your site is also sharing the server resources with many other sites — sometimes hundreds, or even thousands! Upgrading your hosting plan to a VPS or dedicated hosting package can greatly improve the performance of your site as well. So, if you are still using a cheap web hosting plan with an average price below $5/mo and receiving massive traffic from search engines, then it would be the right time for you to upgrade your hosting plan with a better one to speed up your website loading speed.

Use Optimized Images

Big images take up a lot of space and resources when it comes to loading data from your site. This is especially true with very high-quality images. While these images are going to play a big role in the beauty and engagement on your site, there are still ways to optimize such large images so they load faster and put less stress on your server. There are many plugins are available that can drastically reduce the file size of an image without reducing the quality. Image optimization will not only help you boost website load time but will also save disk space for more files and media. If you really don’t want to overload your website with plugins, then you can also use online image reducer apps and software to optimize image before uploading to the media library of the site.

Minimize HTTP Redirects Requests

How and where content is being loaded on your site can also affect its overall performance. You may need to use redirect requests to redirect the web browser from one URL to another. There are a variety of reasons as to why you might want to do this, such as to specify a new URL location, to track visits and clicks on the site or to connect different elements of the website with each other. Since redirects might be necessary to enhance overall UX of the website, you should only be using the redirect requests that are most important because excessive redirect requests can have an ultimate impact on the loading speed of your website/blog.

Don’t Leave Your Audience Hanging

When browsing the internet, few things are more annoying than accessing a slow loading website. It’s hard enough to get someone to visit your site, let alone stay for a few seconds. Don’t give them a reason to leave right away because your site isn’t loading as fast as it should be.

Follow each of the simple and effective site speed optimization tips above to make sure your site loads as fast as possible, ranks higher than the competition and also doesn’t disappoint your audience when they hit your site.
