RicoRamiro's blog is a place where I can write about how I'm feeling and what's going on in my life.

Ordered a Pizza

I Just Ordered Pizza

Ordering online can be easy or it can be hard. What makes it hard is I called two separate phone numbers and received the same person.

The person who answered the phone wanted to charge me $30 for a large pizza. It was highway robbery and I wasn't going to fall for it.

After Multiple Tries

I was finally able to order a large pizza and a 2 liter coke for only $25 which is a lot better.

Now I'm waiting for the delivery. I'm sure it will be good 😀.

f:id:ricoramirox:20190320013728j:plain

If you have never visited Fiverr, then you would have perhaps missed a lot of opportunities. Fiverr is a kind of global, worldwide marketplace that offers a wide range of services and tasks, where a freelancer can take up some tasks or offer their skills and abilities.

Initially, the price of each task begins with $5 (now it has changed), and this is where the website’s name takes its origin.

This website is incredibly popular (not to mention that it is ranked as one in the list of top 100 most visited websites in the United States) and thus offers plenty opportunities for its users, i.e. for YOU.

Start a Lucrative Business

There are many people who have founded businesses thanks to this Fiverr.com. There are people who just enjoy receiving pretty bountiful returns. No matter what services you can offer, however, this website is an incredible finding for you that can help you to establish an own business or enjoy a fairly decent income.

How Can I Get Anything?

There are a lot of ways to make money on Fiverr, and this article will offer you some ways how to make use of this web site, your abilities, and the savvy. So, let us go on!

The Rule Number One: SELL THINGS

Indeed, the easiest way to make money on Fiverr is to sell something that you can make. Indeed, you should do something that does not have any cost. For instance, think about video testimonials. If you can spend a little bit of your precious time and record a nice video testimonial, then there is room to take off.

If you feel insecure on camera, however, go ahead and take advantage of your writing skills! Of course, you can sell your articles, content, or anything else.

You can produce images or text content for social networks. After all, you may have access to some tool like SEnukeXCr or Scrapebox (see the full list); you can easily take advantage of it and sell the backlinks from those tools via Fiverr!

Just get calm and think reasonably about what you can offer at best, and you will see the money flowing into your pocket the same moment. Good luck!

Resell Products

Many people sell various products on Fiverr. You may wonder how is it possible to get a profit from it, but there is a clear way. Sellers on Fiverr usually offer some additional features with their products. For instance, they can make a special sketch or place your name on the product.

This is the time when the opportunity is opening up. Find a product with a special offer that may interest a lot of people, go to eBay, and start selling it there. Yes, you are right; you will be a middleman, and usually being a middleman brings ample returns. Thus, you get a pretty good return risk-free. What else is it if not a unique opportunity?

Social Media Are another Source of Income

It has become something customary for every company to be present on social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. The presence of companies on social media helps them to yield quite good returns, yet they have to spend quite a decent money on social media activities, too. And here appears the chance for you!

For instance, there are people who need some unique content or reviews for their social media marketing. There are also people who need your tweets or likes on Facebook and Twitter. The average price of a page like is between $0.01 and $0.03. Thus, imagine how much you can earn by selling 5000 likes at a price of $0.01 each. $50. It is fairly nice cash for almost zero work by using this social media bot, isn’t it?

Consider Reselling Video Testimonials

For their marketing activities and promotion of the products, companies do naturally need video testimonials. Make use of this opportunity and look for the company in need of video testimonials. There are definitely plenty of such on Fiverr.

You just come across, offer the company to record a video testimonial (with any actor; race, ethnicity, and all other “settings” are chosen by the company), and get a script for it.

After that, you go to the website (you may use other websites than Fiverr, too) and look for such a person as required in the script. The person records the testimonial; you pay him or her, and then you are going to get your money.

As simple as that. Typically, small companies pay something between $20 and $60 per video. On the other hand, large corporations pay from $100 up to $600. Here you get who is it better to work for, right?

Ranking Your Websites Allows You to Get a Steady Passive Income

And one more thing you can do with the help of Fiverr is to promote your websites. Indeed, there are myriads of people who offer SEO services out on Fiverr and who can do this job for you. They are very good at creating backlinks in a large number of ways, and so the beloved search engine Google will definitely like your website, putting it in a high position.

Before resorting to it, you need to do a little research out on the internet and find out where is the empty niche for your web site. In particular, look for the keywords and find out where is a low, not intense competition. Then, go on to Fiverr and find appropriate people who can do the SEO job for you at a low price. There are many professional, yet there are also many people who offer trash jobs.

You can check reviews of people on the website to make sure that the person is appropriate.

Then, you put ads on the website. The work is done. After investing not more than $50 or $70, you get a passive monthly income reaching or even exceeding $100. It is not that bad, right?

As one may see, Fiverr offers plenty opportunities to start getting hard cash. All you have to do is to use them wisely.

Conclusion with few questions, answers any of it in the comment section below. Are you going to start your online income journey?

It Ain't that Hard

The quote on both sides of the image above were inserted unintentionally while I was exploring the context menu. Oh well, you know how people say, "Shit happens".

 

At any rate, I'm still studying web development and I'm actually getting better. I do have an issue. I'm not sure how I'm progressing. I don't have a baseline or anything else to measure progress because I'm studying from home and at my leisure.

 

Don't get me wrong! I am definetly making progress as i'm able to diagnose and fix code issues and I'm getting faster at creating pages of code and entire websites.

 

I don't track how much I work becuase I'm almost always on the computer or a smartphone and I'm either reading about web developnebt or writing CSS3 and HTML5 code.

 

Another problem is I am unable to compare my progress with other students and I don't track anything. I'm semi-retired and I work from home so there's no need for me to track anything.

Or is there.

Amazon HQ2

Amazon HQ2 will be Amazon’s second headquarters in North America. We expect to invest over $5 billion in construction and grow this second headquarters to include as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs – it will be a full equal to our current campus in Seattle. In addition to Amazon’s direct hiring and investment, construction and ongoing operation of Amazon HQ2 is expected to create tens of thousands of additional jobs and tens of billions of dollars in additional investment in the surrounding community.

Amazon Seattle HQ

Amazon estimates its investments in Seattle from 2010 through 2016 resulted in an additional $38 billion to the city’s economy – every dollar invested by Amazon in Seattle generated an additional $1.40 for the city’s economy overall.

In the Community

It’s important to us to invest in the communities where we operate in ways that benefit our neighbors and our employees. In Seattle, Amazon has donated to hundreds of charitable organizations across the city that support people of all backgrounds and income levels. And we do it in innovative ways – we are building a permanent home within our Seattle headquarters for Mary’s Place, a local nonprofit offering shelter to homeless families. This charity will receive more than 47,000 sq. ft. of space in one of our newest buildings, providing housing for 200 families.

Sustainability & Environment

We are putting our scale and our inventive culture to work on sustainability and protecting the environment. Our packaging innovations like Ships in Own Container and Frustration-Free Packaging eliminated more than 55,000 tons of excess packaging in 2016 alone. Last year, Amazon was the leading corporate purchaser of renewable energy in the United States according to the 2017 State of Green Business report. We currently purchase energy generated by wind farms located across the country, and plan to deploy solar systems on 50 fulfillment and sortation centers globally by 2020. Additionally, the newest buildings on our current campus in Seattle are heated using an innovative energy recycling system that uses the heat generated at a nearby data center to warm up our office space.

Learning HTML 5 and CSS3

I've Been Learning HTML 5 & CSS3

Not long ago I decided to learn how to create responsive websites. I know the old HTML code so I didn't have far to go to learn HTML 5.

But I don't know CSS3 so that presents a challenge for me. I am learning CSS3 along with Bootstrap which is a website development framework created by a couple Twitter executives.
