Case Study: How AdamEnfroycom Got 11K Email Subscribers in 2019

Email marketing is the most direct and effective way to connect with leads, nurture them, and turn them into happy, paying customers. But you can’t just send out random emails and expect to see results. The best email campaigns start with the best lists, so building a targeted email list should be your top priority. Let’s take a look at how the combination of a lead magnet and OptinMonster’s Exit-Intent technology works for AdamEnfroy.com.

Meet AdamEnfroy.com

Adam Enfroy writes about how to scale your blog like a startup to 250,000 monthly readers at www.adamenfroy.com. He launched his blog in 2019 and started generating over $35,000/month in revenue within 9 months. He wants to teach new bloggers how to start a blog and do the same.

Before using OptinMonster, Enfroy was testing out Mailchimp but found its opt-in forms to be lacking. They all required custom coding and didn’t have what he was looking for. At this time, Enfroy was registering about 2 email subscribers per day.

Enfroy turned to OptinMonster with the goal of growing his email list but that wasn’t all he wanted.

The end goal was to generate revenue for his 2 digital products (Backlink Blueprint and Affiliate Advantage) with the plan to launch a higher-tier video course about how to start a blog and promote it to his list.

How AdamEnfroy.com Uses OptinMonster

Enfroy uses multiple methods to reach his goals.

For starters, he uses an exit-intent popup to offer a lead magnet. To get the most out of his campaign, he used A/B testing to see how different versions of the campaign performed.

With OptinMonster’s split-testing feature, Enfroy tested different copy and different lead magnets easily.

The winning campaign offers a 15-page checklist on how to launch a WordPress website:

This campaign converts 1% of visitors by showing the offer only to users who’ve not opted in already and if they try to exit the site or are on the site for 90 seconds or more.

Enfroy also uses exit-intent for specific affiliate offers:

This specific campaign converts at 2.36%. Using campaigns like this, Enfroy brings in more than $20,000 in affiliate revenue each month from more than 65 programs.

One of Enfroy’s highest-performing campaigns uses MonsterLinks™.

The MonsterLinks™ feature turns any campaign into a 2-step optin, using psychology to encourage users to subscribe through the Zeigarnik Effect. This is a simple psychological principle that says when someone starts something (by clicking on a MonsterLink™, for example) they’re more likely to finish it.

This campaign converts at a mind-blowing 58.02%!

In addition, Enfroy has inline optins on his homepage, at the end of his blog posts, and in his blog sidebar.

And, he’s happy with the results:

OptinMonster played a huge role in growing my email list from 0 to 11.3k in my blog’s very first year. Before OptinMonster, I was getting just a few email subscribers a day. Now I’m adding over 3,000 subscribers to my list every month. It’s also great for custom page-level affiliate offers to drive sales. I can’t recommend it enough.

Results

Enfroy was able to build a solid email list of more than 11,000 subscribers in his first year with OptinMonster using a combination of exit-intent, MonsterLinks™, and his killer lead magnet.

With OptinMonster, AdamEnfroy.com:

  • Adds more than 3,000 subscribers to its list every month.
  • Brings in more than $20,000 each month from affiliate sales.
  • Sells 75 digital products each month—a 368.75% increase from when it started!

Summary

AdamEnfroy.com turned to OptinMonster because it was looking for a better optin builder to grow its email list and boost revenue without having to use the custom coding required by their old solution. What it found was powerful features and targeting rules that helped it maximize its results.

You can do the same!

I enjoy how easy it is to integrate OptinMonster with WordPress and email marketing tools. I also like working with campaign design and display rules. The designer makes it super-easy to add in custom blocks, images, text, etc. And I like how easy it is to optimize your display rules.

Having A Successful Home Based Business Made Easy

There are numerous reasons why you might be interested in starting your own home-based business, along with a great deal of doubt, concern and questions. The following article offers some tips and advice to help quell the concerns, and offer resolution to common issues many people face in the operation or start-up of a home business.

 <

Before starting a home business, be sure to research your market fully. If your product is something that your target market doesn't want or need, you won't get many sales. Rather than spending all your energy trying to force the market to buy your product, spend that energy designing and promoting a product the market wants.

If you are going to splurge on any home office furniture, splurge on a very comfortable office chair. You are going to spend many, many hours in this chair and if it is uncomfortable, you will not be as productive as you could be and you could technically, do damage to your body.

Since your home is also your work place, make a point to get out of the house on a regular basis. Don't isolate yourself for the sake of convenience. Go have lunch in the park, grab your coffee at a bookstore, etc. Just make sure you are out breathing fresh air at least once a day.

If you have a business, then you need a budget. How can you run a cost efficient business without a budget? It is impossible, and therefore imperative that you incorporate a well devised budget into the planning process. This budget should include what your expenses are of course and it should itemize them. Make sure you are thorough and include everything so that you are not misleading yourself.

Use your web site to advertise a free product for visitors. This will increase traffic on your site and give potential customers the ability to sample your product. Although it may cost a little money in the beginning, you should make up for it in sales from impressed new customers.

Do not be afraid to post your email address on your web site. Make sure that you include it on every separate page that you have. You do not want potential customers to search to figure out how to get in touch with you. The more effort that it takes them, the more likely they are to go on to something else without purchasing from you.

Make sure you have a support network before starting your home business. This includes family members who need to be aware of the time commitment involved, as well as an external networks you can reach out to for advice or support. Working from home has numerous benefits, but remaining a part of a group outside your home is invaluable.

Making the decision to start a home business or to invest more time in the one you've already gotten off the ground can be a cause of concern. There's so many questions about what to do, when to do it, how to do it, and why to do it, from marketing to overhead to product choice. Whether you just graduated with your MBA or are a stay-at-home mom or dad, you can simplify the answers to these questions by using the sensible advice in these tips.

I cannot end this article and not mention the GREATEST resource for small business on the entire internet.

What Makes You Happy?

What makes you happy? Have you thought about that? I don’t mean winning a lottery happy, but everyday little things? Recently a dear friend of mine asked me that question.

I had just gone through an extremely difficult time, experienced a huge loss, as well as significant challenges in many areas of my life, all at the same time. I don’t know about you, but I tend to keep these things to myself. I decided, however, to share with her during one of our regular catch up calls what was really going on in my life at the time, instead of putting on a happy face and positive spin on everything, I spilled the beans.

By the way, it’s perfectly OK to feel down and unhappy, just don’t stay there. Recognize and acknowledge the feelings, feel them, then make a decision to let them go. For sure this is way easier said than done, but the choice really is yours. Focus on the good, be grateful.

So, after pouring my heart out, and sobbing, and sharing with her all the stuff that was and had been going on in my life, she said four little words – what makes you happy?

What? Had she not been listening? I told her that I didn’t know what made me happy, nothing made me happy, everything was going wrong in my life. Then this dear friend, who obviously listens when I speak to her, proceeded to list several things that I had told her in the past that I enjoyed and made me happy. Not one or two things, not big winning the lottery things, but small everyday things that I had shared with her that brought joy to my life.

Things like a sunny day, warm weather, the home where I live, the people in my life, the work that I do, watching old movies, eating potato chips, reading a cozy mystery – nothing big or extraordinary, but all the little things that make me happy.

She pointed out that it was time to shift my focus. So, I started to ask myself several times throughout the day, what makes me happy? I found myself thinking that catching the green light makes me happy, a really good cup of coffee makes me happy, my boots make me happy, a warm coat makes me happy – I’m sure that you get where I’m going with this.

It is so easy to get sucked into the quagmire of negativity. Often, we’re not even aware that we have done so, until someone reminds us, or we have an epiphany and ask ourselves how we got to this negative place. And let’s not forget, what we focus on expands.

After a few days of asking myself several times during the day what makes me happy, I began to shift my focus and simply started to feel joy and gratitude for all the wonderful, simple things that really make me happy. If you think about it, it really is the small stuff that brings the most joy into our lives on a daily basis.

Now it’s time to ask yourself, what makes me happy?

And to my dear friend, I say thank you for reminding me of what is important in life.

Best Regards To You From,

Goran B Edstrom – PROUD MarketHive Entrepeneur ONE Member.

Blockchain Is Now the Most In-Demand Skill on the Planet: LinkedIn

Blockchain Is Now the Most In-Demand Skill on the Planet: LinkedIn

Blockchain Is Now the Most In-Demand Skill on the Planet: LinkedIn

By Daily Hodl

A new report from the social network giant LinkedIn says blockchain professionals are in demand in 2020.

The report places blockchain at the top of a list of “hard skills” that are highly sought after – above expertise in cloud computing, analytical reasoning, artificial intelligence, user experience design, business analysis and affiliate marketing.

“Blockchain was born in 2009 to support the use of cryptocurrency.

But blockchain’s novel way to store, validate, authorize, and move data across the internet has evolved to securely store and send any digital asset. The small supply of professionals who have this skill are in high demand.” 

A recent study from Indeed found that the number of jobs in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry increased 26% from 2018 through 2019.

Although the report says employer demand has “skyrocketed,” it also shows searches for Bitcoin, blockchain and cryptocurrency roles fell 53% in the same time frame.

“Employers, however, are doubling down on these tamper-proof blockchain technologies, which means there’s likely lots of opportunities for job seekers with these skills or interested in this industry.”

According to the study, the top job openings in the world of blockchain are for software engineers, senior software engineers, software architects, full-stack developers and front end developers.

Gold price today rises 1 on safe haven demand as Coronavirus spreads

Gold price today rises 1% on safe haven demand as Coronavirus spreads

At 9.07 am, April gold futures were trading 0.87 per cent higher at Rs 43,037 per 10 grams on MCX.

EW DELHI: Gold futures for April delivery rose nearly 1 per cent in Monday’s trade amid concerns over the spread of coronavirus outside of China and its impact on the global economic growth.

Silver futures for April delivery were ruling at Rs 48,615 per 1 kg on the exchange.

“Bullion counter can continue its upside momentum as yellow metal continued to hover around its seven-year peak in COMEX midst panic regarding coronavirus outbreak as central banks prepare more easing measures to prop up sagging economies,” SMC Global said in a note.

Safe haven demand is pushing gold prices higher globally. Data showed coronavirus is spreading outside China rapidly. Cases in South Korea have touched 763, with eight deaths till date. In Italy, the virus cases have jumped to 150. Iran, which announced its first two cases on Wednesday, has 43 confirmed cases and 8 deaths.

Globally, gold prices climbed more than 2 per cent to their highest since February 2013, as a spike in coronavirus cases prompted a flight to safe havens.

Spot gold was up 1.1 per cent at $1,661.86 per ounce, after climbing to $1,678.58 earlier in the session. US gold futures rose 1 per cent to 1,664.60.

Among other precious metals, palladium eased 0.5% $2,690.52 per ounce. Silver rose 1.2% to $18.69 an ounce, while platinum fell 0.7% to $966.54.

Asian stock markets are seeing panic selling today and India is no exception.

In a sign of panic, E-minis for the S&P500 dropped 1 per cent in early Asian trade on Monday while Nikkei futures slipped more than 1 per cent too. Australia's benchmark index slid 1.6 per cent while New Zealand was down about 1 per cent. South Korea's KOSPI index fell 2.2 per cent. Japanese markets were closed for a public holiday.

What is your spinach actually worth?

What is your spinach actually worth?

Plants derive nourishment and trace minerals from the soil. We in turn get these vital nutrients from plants and animals that eat plants. At least that’s how it’s supposed to work. At the esteemed Rio Earth Summit hosted by the United Nations, it was presented that soil measured across all continents was depleted by 74% to 85%. That was in 1992.

Soil depletion is one of the most significant threats to global health in modern history. The nutrition we derive from our food is not what it used to be, or needs to be. Not even close. Take a cup of spinach from the 1950’s as an example.

Today, you would need seventy cups of that same spinach to get the same nutrient value. Fulvic minerals are the missing link to optimal health and can significantly help bridge this gap.

“The building blocks present in the metabolic machinery of humans are, in the great majority of cases, exactly the same as the building blocks contained in the metabolic machinery of other organisms of extremely different types.”

-Roger J. Williams, Pioneer in Biochemistry and Nutrition

Giving your body what your body is made of.

Fulvic minerals are the end product of the decomposition of organic matter. Ancient compost if you will. Fulvic acid is the smallest particle of that compost and carries all the nutritional information, anti-oxidant capacity and genetic coding of everything in that ancient compost.

Black Oxygen Organics has the sole extraction rights to one of the richest living sources of fulvic minerals in the world, an uncontaminated, fulvic acid-rich peat bog in the Ottawa Valley in Ontario, Canada. Sustainably extracted, purified and delivered in liquid form, this superior fulvic acid supplement nourishes your body with the building blocks it knows and needs to renew and regenerate itself.

Markethive Hive Ranking System Rewarding Your Efforts – Increases Your Earnings

Markethive Hive Ranking System
Rewarding Your Efforts – Increases Your Earnings

The Hive Rank – What is it? 

Markethive’s Hive Rank algorithmically calculates and scores your activity and the interactivity you receive on your productivity you accomplish within the Markethive system.

The system tracks your engagements which include activities such as commenting on posts, friending and following people, subscribing to members’ blogs, messaging, joining groups, tipping and all other basic good practices that will have a positive effect on your hive rank score. It will increase and in doing so, increase your earnings. 

This also includes productivity like creating or swiping blogs, posting, creating capture pages, capture widgets, setting up autoresponders, creating groups, etc. All of this activity assigns predetermined and various calculated values that determine your score on any given day. These values do have a half-life which means depending on your activity, they will diminish which causes your score to fluctuate. In other words, your Hive Rank points expire and constant activity helps to keep your total score at a maximum.

Scores can reach into the thousands, depending on how consistently active you are on the platform, and the reciprocity achieved,  along with your utilization of the inbound marketing tools at your disposal and marketing efforts. High scores can also increase your micropayment faucet earnings, Infinity Bounty rewards, achieving Super Status and becoming qualified to achieve the coveted “Royal Bee of the Day”. 

Super Status – Royal Bee Of The Day (This is currently in development.)

Royal Bee which is Level 6 on the hive rank score is the highest one can achieve. The trick is to stay there. One of the benefits is you will be given the accolade of “Royal Bee For The Day” that will be on display for all to see.  This achievement can only be acquired once every 30 days. 

While you reign in this esteemed position for the day, you will receive all the new signups into Markethive for that day produced by the Markethive Marketing Department. That means as an Entrepreneur Upgrade, you will also receive the 500 coin matching bonus for each verified registration of all signups. Plus your micropayments faucet earnings will also be increased for any activity performed.  

What About Free Members?

Those who are a free member can still achieve the status of Royal Bee For The Day. This will put you in Entrepreneur Upgrade status for the day and you’ll receive the same rewards accordingly. 

Note: As a rule of thumb, you do not receive the matching bonus, as a free member, however, the associates you acquire through the system will be held for you as your associates and if you decide to upgrade within the first 30 day period you will be paid a 100% of the matching bonus of 500 coins. 

 

What steps Do You Need To Take To Activate The Hive Rank?

Whether you are a free member or an Entrepreneur Upgrade, to activate the Hive Ranking system you must have at least three referrals registered in Markethive through you. This includes verification of their phone number upon joining. If they don’t complete the verification process, then technically they have not joined Markethive. 

The Key 

It’s not just what you do within the Markethive Platform, your Hive Rank is also driven up by the engagement you receive when you post or market your blogs and/or capture pages. If your content gets a response and a lot of traffic coming to your site that also increases your hive rank. 

For example, when you create a capture page and promote anywhere on the internet, that capture page will, in turn, drive your Hive Rank numbers up.  So it’s not just what you do within Markethive, your hive ranking score increases due to the results of what you do. 

The key is to be active and consistent with all that Markethive offers to achieve these generous rewards which can only increase your universal income within the Markethive Ecosystem. 

Gamified But Cannot Be Gamed

Gamification makes it fun, exciting and competitive and above all increase your earning potential. Notably, there are limits to certain activities. For example, you can’t produce 10 blogs with one line of content on any given day just for the sake of increasing your score. You can create as many blogs as you like, however, your Hive Rank score will not reflect your activity in that case. 

So, in essence, the system cannot be gamed. Not even the creators of the algorithm can game or manipulate the system. 

Remember, some activities are time-limited so your hive ranking can drop but will rise after performing those tasks again. Eg: Logging in to Markethive daily. Alternatively, if you are blocked by a member, this can negatively impact your score for a time. The various categories included in the Hive Rank system can be found under settings and has 41 active categories at this stage.

Like a credit score of your activity and actions, the Markethive system monitors actions you conduct and rates them into an algorithm to display a rank level commensurate with your activity, engagement, and behavior. 

 

Markethive Is Built For You

Markethive has got you covered with an excellent gamification system that produces real income. It also enhances the building of your business with Markethive services and makes it fun and rewarding! There are many other platforms that are gamified, however, it is all in-house. You are rewarded with points or credits only. This only allows you to use those credits within that certain platform for advertising your brand, which otherwise would cost you money to do so. 

Markethive being the complete ecosystem built on the Blockchain, with its own Crypto Exchange, the Vault, mining hives, (in development), Markethive Cryptocurrency Coin (MHV), and products for sustainability will provide you with universal income with ease of liquidity to use that income. 

The Hive Rank is responsible for bonuses, bounties, and increases in revenue and plays a big part in the interest you earn in the upcoming Vault. Currently, in development, the Vault will replace the current payment center with a far more effective and rewarding system. It’s like having your own bank account within the Markethive ecosystem! The higher your Hive Rank the more interest paid to you. The Markethive Vault is unique and will be ready along with the Markethive Wallet. More about this in upcoming articles. 

Stay informed on all the developments of the Markethive Ecosystem by attending the weekly webinar on Sundays at 10 am Mountain Time. The link to join us at that time can be found in the Calendar in the blue navigation bar at the top of your Markethive home Page. Need to know what time it is in your country? Go here… https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html 

It is important to note Markethive is not an MLM or affiliate company, it is a referral company. So free members can benefit greatly by just referring 3 people which will activate the faucet or micropayments and Hive Rank. That means you don’t have to spend any money within the system. Simply build it and get rewarded.  

 

Markethive is the next generation of all things social media and marketing. So “GET ACTIVE!” and conduct your business and online activities with a system that truly rewards you so that you may have the success and create wealth that will surpass any other social media platform out there today.

Inbound Marketing Real World Example

I just acquired my own home, complete with DIY home renovations etc. I used to be a general contractor way back in the 70s. So I can do most of the work, or even better, hire someone and know the work is being done correctly and timely. So I am now the perfect customer for the home improvement industry.

I have a kitchen to redo. I went to the local hardware store to look at their store models. I looked at some upscale homes for sale to see what their kitchens looked like, to get ideas. I am exploring. I became aware of a new technique called epoxy counter tops.

So I start searching for more information on epoxy counter tops. Is the epoxy toxic? Does it hold up with years of kitchen use, how do you do it yourself, you get the picture. So I find many sites online about it, but most of them are trying to sell me some product or to hire them or buy their premade counter tops and I keep searching around. As I search I keep running into very explanatory blogs about the epoxy counters and these are published by a company called Stone Coat Counter Tops. (https://www.stonecoatcountertops.com/) They offer a ton of instructions, information which has convinced me to make a simulated granite set of counters for my kitchen saving me huge costs.

I discovered their videos on their Youtube channel where they have over 500,000 subscribers, receiving views in the millions.

See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ll3fH_b2I1Y

It also helps that the owner that does the videos is pretty cool with a wonderful sense of humour. You can’t help liking him and that makes me want to do business with them.

Now I am interested in their product, so I check out their Twitter account, yep great support there, with only 1500 followers, but represented. They have a current Facebook page with 209,000 followers, impressed so far. They have a humble following on LinkedIn (202 followers) and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/stonecoatcountertop (23,400 followers)

Bottom line they are well branded on the Internet. I have growing confidence, next step to call them and reach out to them.

I will continue on with this project and report in the comments below. These types of projects is what Markethive is designed to accelerate and leverage.

Cryptocurrency adoption is key to financial inclusion

Cryptocurrency adoption is key to financial inclusion "CoinDCX CEO"

Providing financial inclusion for all is Markethive’s main objective.

The answer is Markethive’s blockchain technologies, and integrated entrepreneurial ecosystem.


In a recent article for Nasdaq, Sumit Gupta, CEO of CoinDCX, one of India’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, wrote about how cryptocurrencies could hold the keys to financial inclusion. In the article, Gupta cited the World Bank’s most recent Global Findex report which stated that as many as 1.7 billion people worldwide do not have access to formal financial services. However, Gupta noted that two-thirds of unbanked individuals have access to a mobile phone.

The CoinDCX CEO argued that in such a “highly globalized, technology-driven world,” one with 5.11 billion unique mobile phone users and 4.39 billion Internet users last year, “cryptocurrencies could be the answer to ensuring greater financial inclusion and opportunities for all.”

According to Gupta, the vast majority of the unbanked live in poverty-stricken areas with emerging economies. This dual-threat of poverty and economic hardship makes the barrier to entry for traditional financial services too high for low-income individuals and traveling to physical bank offices can prove “inconvenient and costly for those living in rural areas,” he said.

Gupta also spoke of how there are no costs for holding or managing cryptocurrencies which, unlike banks, don’t require a lengthy approval process to get hold of.

Sumit Gupta also said that an inclusive financial system could inadvertently boost socio-economic growth, lifting communities out of poverty. Additionally, he also said that if cryptocurrencies are to have the desired impact in bringing the unbanked into the financial ecosystem, promoting mainstream adoption and a coordinated approach between global regulators and policymakers will be key.

“Smart regulation is crucial to ensuring a secure and equitable system in which cryptocurrency holdings are protected, without hindering the potential of the technology.”
