Don’t put all your Eggs in one Basket (You might need them for a diet)
Of all the sayings I think this is one that we should all remember and live by ! – I do for sure. So what does it mean? quite simply don’t rely on one income stream online – you MUST Diversify
For instance, You may be doing great on Ebay, selling thousands of pounds worth of goods, but guess what it is so easy to get banned, and then lose your income.
I did, it took a while to get my account back and it was fine, but the hundreds of listings I had that were designed and written well with great photos etc that took me years to perfect, were all LOST ! – Did Ebay apologize, what do you think.
The same thing can happen on Amazon, for sure.
Therefore I think we all need to diversify. I love the Silver Money Tree website and I put a lot of work into it. I like helping people and if I can give somebody some advice on how to make a living online and not get scammed ! well I think that is a good thing – Karma Wise for sure.
However, I dont only have this website, I have another called This Diet Works
This website is about diets, and again this is something I am very interested in, as I am prone to putting on weight easily. Right now I have been working on the diet site over the last few days, and as you probably know, January is a GREAT time to promote diets. We are all prone to putting on a little weight over Christmas so it goes without saying, Diets are really big now.
Full Metal Jacket
Now you may be thinking why did I put a picture of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, the fantastic character played by R Lee Ermey in the film Full Metal Jacket as the photo for this post ? What has that got to do with diets ?
Well you have probably heard about the Military Diet that is all the rage at the moment. This Diet is huge ! however in my opinion it is not really any good ! I think it is too harsh and you WILL be hungry, something I really dont like ! but as it is very popular I thought it best to do a post on my Diet Website.
So I thought what angle should I use to write about the Military Diet, and then I had one of those light bulb moments ! Good old Gunnery Sergeant Hartman. I can’t think of anybody better to put a point across.
Now a good platform to use to advertise your websites is Facebook ! – If you do it properly Facebook can be cost effective, just ! – The best way I have found is to just boost a post. so that is what I did.
Now, there are thousands of posts everyday on Facebook and all the other platforms, so you must try and be original. I mean really original, and this is what I did.
If you have seen Full Metal Jacket you will remember the opening speech by the Sergeant. It really is a Classic.
For my post on Facebook, I just played around with the words a little, took out all the swearing and made a pitch for my Diet Website.
Here it is: – and do you know what Facebook approved it ! – Facebook are renowned as you probably know for refusing a LOT of ads, and especially Diet Ads, but this got through.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman “Are you on the Military Diet Soldier?”
Recruit “Sir no Sir”
“Well, you dont say, what have we got here a comedian,
Private Joker ! I admire your honesty, Hey I like you. you can come over to my house and meet my sister.
Private Joker why did you join my beloved Corps and not go on the Military Diet?
“Because I’m on the 1 Week Diet Sir, and it works much better”
“Are there any Jelly Donuts on this 1 Week Diet Soldier?”
“Sir no Sir, just Protein and Super Foods”
“Does it work Private Joker ?”
“It does Sir, now get yourself over to The 1 Week Diet and find out”
Do you know I think I will, but just one last thing, tell me Private Joker are you from Texas?”
“Sir Yes Sir”
“Holy Dog Tags, only 2 things come from Texas……………”
So there you have it, something original and also a bit of fun !! the Ad is doing very well by the way, I think people like to have a laugh
If you want to see the actual speech, it is here, but please be warned, it does contain some violence, racist and strong language.
