What Phone would you like to Buy if you were Given only N100,000 to Spend?


What Phone would you like to Buy if you were Given only N100,000 to Spend?

It time to know what you think?  Lets assume that you were walking into a phone shop, suddenly the owner of the shop walks straight to you and said ” its your lucky day”.  That you should pick anything in his shop that worth of N100,000’!


You only have 30 minutes to choose what ever  you want, and it has to be Phone, iPad,  or some kind of phone accessories, as normally found at phone shop. – what would you get?

You can get as many products as you like as long as they total N100,000 or less.

Lets use the prices at Konga Phone shop as a guide (they have most things) but don’t get too caught up in the details – really I’m asking what Phone you’re currently eyeing off!

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Specs & Price

The Galaxy Note 5 is the latest addition to Samsung’s popular line of Galaxy Note line – unveiled the same day as the more pocket-friendly Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 2. The elegant phablet borrows several features from the flagship smartphone Galaxy S6, including an octa-core processor and similar camera.



Design and Display


Samsung, known for making quality devices, did not disappoint with the Galaxy Note 5. The phablet shows of a premium design featuring tough scratch-resistant glass and a sturdy metal frame.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a curved rear which makes it fit well into your hand despite its large size. The design and build quality compares very well with the Galaxy S6.


The device sports a massive 5.7-inch Super AMOLED with Quad HD resolution, just like the Galaxy S6 Edge+, but without the curved edges. That’s an awesome display you have there.


Camera and Storage


Samsung Galaxy Note 5 packs the same terrific 16-megapixel rear-facing camera found on the Galaxy S6 to allow you take breathtaking images. You can now live stream videos direct from the shooter.

There is also a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Onboard storage is either 32 GB or 64 GB, which you will have to contend yourself with as there is no microSD slot for storage expansion.


Processor, Memory and Software


The same octa-core Exynos 7420 processor that runs the show on Samsung Galaxy S6 also does the heavy lifting here. The processor, which has four cores running at 2.1 GHz and 1.5 GHz, is paired with a very generous RAM of 4GB, which means Samsung Galaxy Note 5 may deliver more heavy-duty performance than the other device.

The device runs on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, overlaid with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin.


Miscellaneous Specs


Samsung Galaxy Note 5 comes with an improved S Pen that its Korean manufacturer says provides enhanced pressure sensitivity and note-taking capability than previous versions. The phablet packs a powerful 3000mAh battery – smaller than the one on the Galaxy Note 4.

The battery supports quick charging and wireless charging. The Galaxy Note 5 also supports 4G LTE connectivity to allow you have access to blazing-fast mobile data speeds.


Pricing and availability


Samsung Galaxy Note5 is not yet available in Nigeria, but global launch begins on August 21, 2015. We currently have no data on pricing and availability for Nigeria. When available, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N125,000 to N200,000 at launch.

How I Make Money From DealDey and How You Too Can Start Earning From Dealdey

How I Make Money From DealDey and How You Too Can Start Earning From Dealdey


Today, I'm going to share with you how I make money from DealDey.com.

In case if you have not heard of DealDey, it's one of the Nigerian eCommerce site just like Konga and Jumia. Although they don't have much products on their site when compared with Jumia and Konga, but they sell at a very good price.

One thing that interest many internet marketers about Dealdey is their affiliate program. They pay you N2000 for each referral that buys anything on their website.

But not many internet Marketers knows how to make money as affiliate.  In this article, I' m going to show you how you too can start making money on DealDey. Feel free to try this method on Konga, Jumia, and other site.

Although, I have tried it on Konga and Jumia, it didn't converts very well as much as it does on Dealdey. I really don't know why.


Steps.

=>> Go to Dealdey and signup on their site.

=>> Then confirm your account with the verification code sent to your phone

=>> Then click on "Earn 2000" to get your own referral link. The link will look like this :  http://www.dealdey.com/?ref=ZJUYTR4TZ

=>> Paste the referral on your notepad.

=>> Then, use your judgement to look for a product that is very cheap, that is less than N500 and has a good number of orders.

=>> Copy the affiliate link of that product and paste it on your notepad too. eg. http://www.dealdey.com/deals/kitchen-sponges-5-piece-set/

=>> Next, you have to attach your tracking code to the end of the product you chose. For example http://www.dealdey.com/deals/kitchen-sponges-5-piece-set/?ref=ZJUYTR4TZ

=>> Then blast it all over the internet- Facebook, Nairaland, and others

To get a very fast result, you need to use Facebook Ads to market it

=>> Login in to you Facebook account, and go to Manage Ads

=>> Select website clicks, and fill in other details.

=>> use your chosen  Dealdey product link as your website

=>> then in selecting your audience, you have to be careful here. This is what make a difference. You can contact Donvin for more tips on Marketing on Facebook. He is a guru when it comes to Facebook Ads.

=>> Look for a good company in Nigeria that has a good interactive page. Companies like MTN, GTB, Etisalat, Airtel, and others are very good to target their audience.

=>>  Choose only one target audience per each Facebook Campaign. I got this advice from Donvin.

=>>  Then choose the time you want you ads to be shown. In my own case, Donvin advised me to choose 8pm - 11pm everyday and public holidays. People are usually in the buying mode at those time.

=>> Make sure you offer incentive on your campaign. eg, Order this product and get an additional N500 gift item from us.

=>> Then submit your campaign to Facebook for approval

=>> Once you are approved, you will start seeing referrals immediately.

Why this Method works

1)  You are marketing a very cheap product that everybody can afford.
2)  Your audience is well targeted.
3)  You offer incentive which makes more people to order the product.

Just feel free to get this a try and let me know what your result are.


 As a blogger and affiliate, you may need to track everything, and DealDey did not made any provision for that. I spoke with one of the customer care representative, i was told that i can open another another if i really want to track which of my traffic sources that converts.   

So you can open 2 - 3 accounts with them and use one account for facebook ads, then another account for Nairaland ads and another one for type of marketing you want to implement. 

Having these 3 accounts will help to track which of the traffic sources that makes you money and you can concentrate on those one.



Thanks for reading.

Amazon Now Officially Ship To Nigeria

Amazon Now Officially Ship To Nigeria


Some days ago, while browsing through Amazon website, I noticed that Nigeria has been included in Amazon shipping country list.

Although, I 'm yet to find out whether all the items on their website can be shipped to Nigeria, but the few items I ordered from Amazon allowed me to input my shipping address to my Nigeria address.


In one of my articles, I wrote about how to buy things on Amazon and use some online shipping companies to have it ship to Nigeria, but now you don't need to do that any more.

You can now buy your product direct from USA company and have it ship to Nigeria directly. Some of the products comes with shipping fees.

To Order your product on Amazon and have it ship to Nigeria, follow these short steps

=>>   Visit amazon stores at http://www.amazon.com

=>>   Then on the search area, type the product you want to buy. In my own case, i typed Laptops

=>>  By your left , under "Refine by", check the box that says "Ship to Nigeria", this will filter out all the products that can be ship to Nigeria



=>>  Then browse the product and select the one you like and click add to cart

=>> From there proceed to heck out and payment.


Now that Amazon is shipping directly to Nigeria, many Nigerians will prefer to order products from Amazon rather than Nigerian based Online shop with Konga and Jumia, because of the cost.  Its more cheaper to buy fro Amazon than from Jumia or Knoga.

I hope this helps . Have any question ask.

List Of Blog Topics That Are Against Google Adsense TOS Policies

List Of Blog Topics That Are Against Google Adsense TOS Policies


Google Adsense is a pay-per-click program that serves as a major source of revenues to millions of bloggers locally and internationally. This programme is being hosted by Google, and many people find it very hard to be accepted by Google into Adsense.

Many people that got accepted, later found their Adsense accounts disabled or banned.  Most of them don't have a clue on why Google disabled their accounts.  This is because they have violated Google Adsense TOS policy.

Google disable Adsense accounts for some reasons. Your account will be disabled or banned as a result of a malicious actions, like invalid click activities. Your account could be banned if you are writing contents that are not appreciated by Google Adsense.

In this article, we will be looking at the topics that Google Adsense frowned at, which may result in getting your account banned or disabled very quickly.

 Sometimes, Google AdSense rejects a site outright. This happens due to inadequate or inappropriate content mostly. And sometimes, Google AdSense accounts get disapproved or banned after approval.

This could either be due to malicious behavior, such as click fraud, or it could be because the publisher added some inappropriate content that wasn't present at the time of approval. In any case, it is important that you know what exactly Google AdSense classifies as "inappropriate", so that you can stop publishing such content before even starting at it.

 =>>     Adult ContentAdult, pornographic and sexually explicit content is not allowed. The general rule of thumb is, if some content isn't appropriate to be viewed with family and especially kids, then it's not appropriate to be placed with Google Ads. Google intends to keep the AdSense network family-safe

 =>>    Copyrighted material - Content that violates the copyright law is strictly against Google's TOS. If you don't have permission to distribute some content, such as mp3 songs or videos, then you are violating AdSense TOS, and most definitely will end up getting banned. 

=>>     Drugs and other addictive material - Google prohibits putting up Ads on pages that sell or promote illegal or prescription drugs, especially narcotics that are addictive. Herbal drugs aren't allowed either. Additionally, you cannot put ads next to content relating to hard alcohol, beer, liqueur, tobacco or tobacco related products such as cigarettes

=>>    Gambling - Ads may not be placed next to content relating to gambling or betting that involves exchange of money and/or other prizes

=>>    Hacking / cracking - A lot of people have sprung up with blogs and websites providing instructions, or distributing software that is involved with hacking or cracking another software or website to grant users with illegal access. Such content is strongly disproved by AdSense. 

=>>   "Pay-To" Sites - Sites that offer compensation for some action, such as Pay-to-Click, where users get paid for each action they perform such as clicking an ad, browsing some pages, reading some emails, and so on, are not allowed to display ads. This is because it might result in an invalid click activity

=>>   Violence - Such sites are not allowed to display Google ads that display violence, such as images or videos with freak accidents, gore, fighting, and torture. Such content isn't family-safe, and hence is classified as inappropriate

=>>   Content biased against individuals or organizations - Although Google supports freedom of speech, it does not allow ads to be placed alongside content that is aimed against an individual or organization, including hate content or racism.

=>>     Google brand features - You can not use Google Brand features on your website, such as copying Google's layout, framing a Google's service such as Google finance, using Google's trademarked terms in a domain name (such as www.googletips.com etc)

=>>    Weapons -  Google ads are not permitted on sites that sell, facilitate or advocate the sales of weapons and weapon accessories, including ammunition, gun parts, hardware, pistols, rifles, BB guns, sporting guns, air guns, etc. Explosives and fireworks are blacklisted by AdSense as well
