Nine reasons why Aha now blogging community is better than Facebook.

Are you bored of seeing the same valueless Facebook timeline? Do you wish for a community where friends provide real care and attention to your problems and celebrate your happiness like your family? If yes, give me the permission to introduce you to amazing community that also rewards its active members.

P.S. – This is not a paid post or review I am sharing my genuine experience so you can trust me that the community I am going to talk about is awesome.

The community I am proud to write about is Aha!Now blogging community. Yes it is a life blog, a multi-niche PR3 blog that offers quality tutorials for every walk of life like parenting, education, motivation, blogging, freelance writing, you name it. What is icing on the cake is Aha!Now has recently launched the community for anyone which provides great values at least better than most social networking sites.

Aha!Now Blog - Bringing happiness into your life

Nine reasons why Aha!Now Blogging community is better than Facebook or Google plus.

1) It is the brain child of Harleena Singh- “the blog commenting queen”.

Yes, if you are a blogger you are sure to know Harleena Singh and her bright smile. Her presence in blogosphere is greatly enjoyed and though she is a pro-blogger and has connections with other top bloggers. She is down to earth and never hesitates to help new bloggers.

She is seen commenting her views (relevant and real ones) on almost every blog she knows and her advice and comment is treasured. So it is definitely a wise decision to be under her observation and to befriend her on the community. Enstine Muki featured her in a post.

2) Networking with pro bloggers:

Yes almost every seasoned blogger is a part of her community. You can get to network with them, learn from them and seek their advice for your projects. They are all very helpful and cooperative.

3) Drive Traffic to your blog:

Aha Now Blogging Community or ABC is the place that acts as a social bookmarking and sharing site that helps you to share your latest post with the community members. It’s a guarantee that friends over their will appreciate your work and give genuine feedback. They also go and read the post and share it with their audience.

4) Get motivated and learn great things:

Unlike Facebook or Google plus where we live a too sneak peak type life and without any values, Aha-now has great features and a store house of posts that will help you to learn on the go.

5) There is something for everyone:

No, don’t take Aha-Now is only for bloggers, if you are a normal layman or reader too there are posts on life and other topics to hold your interests. You can have a vast section of parenting and earning online posts too.

Almost all the members are from diverse fields and walk of life so you get to interact with everyone or specific people you want. The choice is yours.

6) Engagement:

If you believe me, I have come across many great bloggers and freelance writers through this community. I have become a loyal reader of their awesome blogs and similarly, many great bloggers like Ravi Chahar, Vishnu Verma, Yvonne, Ikechi and Nisha Pandey have become my great friends and they visit my blog regularly.

So, if you are looking for engagement and quality response to your words then this is a hundred times better place than Facebook of Google plus.

7) Family feel:

Tired of fickle minded social networking site? ABC offers you not a social networking site but an online home for you. At Aha-now we celebrate the birthdays and other achievements of the Ahaians very warmly and we would also love you to be there.

8) Not just happiness, we are there for you at times of your worst dreams.

Quite ironical that you post a status of your indisposition on Facebook and people LIKE it. On the contrary, Ahaians stand up for you. Give you moral support and suggest positive ways for you to get out of the problems. Great, isn’t it? You can check this out.

9) Giveaways and other bonus gifts:

Tell me what added benefits did Facebook give you rather than eating away your productivity? But here we have a community that gives way its loyal members with gifts worth 600$ and promises of bringing even more. What is amazing is that it does not give away products to promote some sponsors or to clear up stocks of some B-grade company. It announces giveaways that are truly and truly valuable to its readers.

So, what did you decide? I know you can’t wait to join so here is the link :

Important steps to rock the Pinterest platform:

1) Create a account:

  1. Do it like a pro.  You must create your Pinterest account very carefully because it is not for the mere Teen hangout (you can use it like that, though).
  2. Put your accurate Bio and your details about your business or blog, whatever the case may be.
  3. Upload a headshot for your profile image.
  4. Link it to your website. Bonus: Pinterest gives a link back to your site provided you verify it. Remember Pinterest is a PR9 website.

2) Share, share, share.

Sharing is the new social Mantra. If you gonna get noticed you got to share others stuffs. But be sure do it from heart. You don’t wanna be tagged as Bots,right?
The more you Pin on pinterest the more you are going to be noticed and more are the chances that people will follow you.
 
Did you know about 80% of the Pins on Pinterest are repins!
Pinterest displays related boards that have the same or similar image when one clicks on any image. So the more pins you have the more you gonna be noticed.

3) Promote your Pins:

  1. You must promote your pins as you do with your tweets and Facebook or Instagram account.
  2. Link your Facebook and Twitter account with your Pinterest profile and seamlessly share pins  as soon as updated. (CAUTION: don’t overdo or post every pin to FB or Twitter as that will kill the urge of your followers to check your pinterest account because they get everything cooked and packed on their choice of platform.)
  3. Create an urge to visit your Pinterest board by giving regular but limited sneak peaks of whats pinned to your board.
  4. Use pinterest’s own promoted pins feature, Just like Facebook’s promoted ads.
  5. Hold contests and organize giveaway in return for favors like Pin to win.

Twitter founder, Jack Dorsey says,”Our mission is to instantly connect people everywhere to what’s more meaningful to them.”

Twitter has around 9100 tweets per second summing up to 1 billion tweets in just five days. Around 40% of twitter’s 645.7 million active registered users watch others tweet without themselves tweeting any (are you one of them ?) Anyways this represents a NO LESS audience for the proper exposure of your business.

It is not impossible to have 1 or two million followers in just a month or two and more followers will definitely help you to promote your business, building your mailing list or sell your affiliate products.

Today I am showing you the top six ways to monetize twitter followers and get huge revenues from your followers. This ideas have been gotten from the famous book “The Laptop Millionaire” by Mark Anastasi. I will be giving a detailed review of the book in my next posts, but to introduce, this book is the Bible of online money making from blog for beginners. You can buy the book from Flipkart here.

1. Promote your business to your followers :
Some of the methods showing how you can promote your online/offline business on twitter healthily are as follows.
a) Send Tweets: Twitter allows you to send tweets to your followers(prospects, fans, clients etc.) to stay in touch with one another. We can utilize this feature to send tweets about our business to our followers in order to promote our blog, website or business.These may help you to end upon finding potential customers who are willing to business with you and thereby you make profits.
b) Increase your email list: Email list building is a very popular business strategy every blog/website should follow. It not only helps you to gain dedicated customers (because only the people that are genuinely impressed by your business will decide subscribing you ) that are potential sources of profit for you. In order to gain most number you can send tweets of offers, discounts or results of giveaways that you will be posting to your email lists only. This will attract the customers who want to avail the offer and they will subscribe to your list. Don’t forget to give the URL of your email service at the end of the tweet.

2. Promote affiliate products to your twitter followers :
This is the ultimate monetization strategy followed by most tweeter power users. You could also make hundreds of dollars if not  thousands, by just tweeting your affiliate link of products to the potential followers.
a) For this what you have to d is set up your twitter id on the niche you are related to. Now you can use twitter’s Who-To-Follow feature of twitter and find people of your niche related to the feature you offer.
b) now go on and start following them and you are sure to get an average of 30-40% follow backs. (Warning- don,t over do the feature or your twitter account may get banned)
c) Start selling your affiliate products to these customers and you can get a good profit.

3. The Direct response approach :
This is a very effective twitter strategy that helps you even if you have few or no followers. What you have to do is just type the relevant tweet that your potential clients might use. for example, “I need a job”, “fed up with belly fat”, “my headphone sucks” and many more. You are sure to get hundreds of tweets from people that typed the particular sentence all you have to do is direct reply them your product that you think might help them to reduce their problem. about 50% people are sure to click on the link given they don’t look spammy.

4. Sell your tweets to advertisers :
If you have more than 10,000 genuine twitter followers you can easily get anywhere between 6-10$ by selling your tweets. Imagine having 10 twitter accounts with an average of 10,000 followers each you could make a decent 50-60$ a day.(A good way to start right.?).

I am listing a few sites that don’t mind paying you to just retweet their tweets to your own followers:
1) Twtmob
2)Sponseredtweets
3)Twittad
4)Fiverr
5)Jobsfor10
6)Gigbucks
7)Taskarmy
8)Retwwet.it
9)Twithawk
10)Adretweet

5. Buy Twitter Traffic :
These is the same strategy as number four above but in the reverse order. Just as you choose to sell your reach and followers on twitter to others in the above step all you have to do is buy tweets for yourselves from the advertisers and drive all the traffic to your website.
Just last month I gave a Fiverr agent 5$ to tweet my offer to his followers and believe me I got a decent amount by his followers buying this product.

Bonus tip : what 90% of people think is as social networking sites are free they will generate sales for free but Please be smart and invest as a business and eat the ripe fruits over.
