Facebook Can Triple Your Sales

The photo below is from 1 of my multiple fan pages on facebook. As you can see the reach goes higher

and higher.

Here you will find one of my FB posts also on instagram to bring in more traffic.

Now I can tell you this and tell you as a fact. BY FAR and away Facebook is the most profitable network for my clients and for my company. 

I have heard the whole gplus is taking over and Facebook is sinking speech. Anyone that says that doesn’t know much about social media and doing business.


As you see below that 1 single offer was claimed over 225 times by people I targeted and with a 28% conversion ratio….LIFE IS GOOD.


Post by Offers.

Oh and by the way I have over 300,000 gplus followers myself and hold the largest circle share in the world record so I know all about gplus and it certainly has benefits.


I have made a name for myself online by thinking outside the box…….way outside. That is how I was able to turn this into a very profitable career in 8 months time.

 Cok,created over 40 FB Fanpages of my own. I have spend thousands of dollars building those pages up with the audience I wanted.

Pin those offers and post them on instagram on top of sharing them on all 30 pages.



Yet another 41 claims and incredible reach you see by the time I am done sharin to my over 30 pges/groups and pinterest I will usually get an organic reach of 7 to 15,000


Post by Offers.



As you can see the stats keep going up up and away this is one of my middle of the road pages not bad when you have 30 to maintain.




Post by Offers.




The industry is irrelevant as long as you know how to make the offer correctly and at what time. 

The headline and photo are critical as are the time you reshare to the other pages. It is about a 4 hour project each offer if you do it right.




















Post by Offers.










So look FB is not dead infact it is selling more for me today then anything i have ever been a part of and that is saying a lot. SO just because you see or hear that something else may be better tht is just an opinion. I love all social media but I really love the social media that makes me money at the same time.



Coupons are highly effective for engaging with your target audience and increasing your business’s ROI.  

Another marketing tool that is highly effective for engaging with your target audience is Facebook.

No further explanation is needed to see the value in using Facebook Offers, coupons that you can create and promote to your Facebook fans and their friends.



Facebook Offers can benefit your online marketing efforts both on and off Facebook.  Posting an offer on your business’s Facebook page can lead to engagement with your fans and fans’ friends on Facebook, as well as site traffic and sales off Facebook.

Post by Jmhhacker Academy.









No matter how well you’ve planned and developed your Facebook Offer, it won’t be used unless you’ve taken the proper steps to promote it.  

Publishing follow up posts on your Facebook page announcing the offer and reminding fans of its expiration date will continue to keep it in the newsfeeds of your followers.!

Post by Jmhhacker Academy.













However, your promotion options for driving customers to your Facebook Offer aren’t limited to Facebook.  

Here are a few ideas of additional ways to promote your Facebook Offers.


Post by Justin Matthew.

  • Send an email blast of your offer with an appealing image, description and link that connects to the offer on your Facebook page.  Remind recipients that they should “Like” your Facebook page, too

Pin the photo using the exact FB Offer link. Embed the FB Post in a blog article like I did here even tweet post on gplus or use instagram if you aren’t doing ALL of these things you are WY behind before you turn on the lights…





Use these tips and promotion ideas to start running your own Facebook Offers.  You’ll gain new Facebook fans from the offer shares and buzz and your existing Facebook fans will thank you for the awesome discounts!


If you have not yet run a Facebook Offer, what’s holding you back?  If you have run Facebook Offers, which have been the most successful?  Do you have any favorite methods for promoting the offers that you run?  We look forward to your feedback!



















How many of you have GREAT success with FB offers? If not why?

My own Empire Monopolize Social Media

I’ve always been the guy to do things his own way or a new unproven way because it was different.

I look on marketing is that if you do it the way 99.9 percent are doing it you are dead wrong. I am that guy in Madden that figured out that one long 75 yard pass to the corner and would throw it all game. Basically find a way no one else has and master it.

That being said I HAVE to tell you about well a game… but it actually works for SO Much more than that. I see many current members always worried about day to day non issues about stock is up or down or someone that sold my shares….that is nothing that concerns me. It is not a big picture problem and takes focus away from the real focus.

Empire Avenue can be used to boost your social media marketing, it can give a campaign not only a BLAST of a start but leave your client in AWE yes AWE. Or your own agenda. The key is to TRULY understand how to play the game and what it can and can’t do. So far maybe 5 people know this game.

What is Empire Avenue? Use this link to sign up http://www.empireavenue.com/about?t=1f698fe2

It’s a game where you can trade shares in each other and your social media activity decides how much money your shareholders make. I found that as long as you are active on social media you will be fine.

In a simple way let us say I bought 500 shares in you 2 weeks ago and you put out a YouTube video that goes viral or a gplus post that is number 1 for 3 days that is good for me because I own your shares.
If you are not a part of Empire Avenue and are into social media in ANY way you have no shot. I could list 100 reasons but how about simply elite social connections.
How do you get started? Easy

Just sign up upload a picture and connect your social networks and blogs.You get 100k to start as long as you connect all your networks and a photo you will get to 50 a share in no time and have some money or EAVES (currency on empire)

The idea here is to buy stocks that will yield a high dividend compared to the cost, To start with you’ll have to build up some spending cash, that’s best done by investing as much as you can in high yield shares.

I build up my networks, they do well, people buy my stock. I then look at recent arrivals that are leaders or have all networks connected or I make sure I have the top 50 people and add or buy more when I can. I don’t sweat the small stuff play right play fair you will do great.

Empire Avenue Missions THE MAGIC BULLET

Ever tried Sponsored Tweets or paying for likes? This is like that but always with real people that work for what is literally Monopoly money.

You tweet or share something on Facebook. Set up a mission saying Retweet or Like my post and I’ll give you 10,000 Eaves (that’s the currency).

All of a sudden you get 10, 20 or 100 re tweets, depending on your budget. That then gives the post a shot at going viral!!

This gives you marketing advantages you actually get real retweets, shares, comments or whatever. You can use this to kick start any campaign in social media. I used it for 8 months on fiverr and made 80,000 so thx Empire Avenue!
I’ll even help you get started

To get you started you’ll need some investors, I’ll be your first one. Use this link to sign up (it gives me eaves and I’ll invest those in you and as many more as necessary to max out in your stock),

I have been on Empire for 1 year now, changed my life.

Empire Avenue and MSM team up

How to make good use of Hashtags in Instagram?

How to make good use of Hashtags in Instagram?

How to make good use of Hashtags in Instagram?

This new version fixed some basic problems:
- It added the possibility to delete “comments” individually instead of erasing the entire comment stream linked to a picture.
- You can now ban any user.
- Reporting a user is now possible.
However the most important improvement is the introduction of # (called hashtags) in the app.

What is a hashtag?

A hashtag is a “symbol” (or code) that allows web search engines to find and categorize messages, keywords and in the case of Instagram, pictures.

For instance, if you type #cat or #cats in one of your pictures, any user anywhere in the world looking for “cat” or “cats” will easily find your picture and others user’s pictures using the same #keyword.

Where should I use a hashtags on Instagram?

You can use hashtags in every single one of your posts, here are a few examples:
Use Hashtags in every picture comment you make!

- With your Instagram User name:

Each picture you post should have your name preceded by a hashtag: #yournick
This will enable any user interested in your pictures to easily find them with one single search and also eliminate the need of scrolling through all the pictures on a user’s profile.

- With the Subject of a picture:

Add a name or a description to each one of your pictures.
For example:
#Pic of my #cat called Kitty in the #garden
The idea here is not to tag every single word, only the most relevant and important.
Adding a hashtag on your cat called Kitty is probably not very relevant for searches; it would be better to add keywords such as #pet or #pets.

- Where did you take the picture?

Its always interesting for Instagram users to look for pictures of places, use hashtags on them.
For example:
Pic of my #hollidays in #Thailand , #Asia.

- Hashtag the Apps, techniques and Camera you used for the photo.

I strongly recommend you to hashtag the special techniques you use; I do it all the time because it really makes your pictures interesting to others, moreover, it will make it easier for those looking for special images to find your picture.
For example:
Pic made with #Iphone4 #Camera+ and App #idrost using effects like depth of field... etc

Let people know you by adding a comment about you on a pic!.

If you want to let people know who you are you can use the hashtag #allaboutme followed by all your relevant information.
Your can start by putting up all the important information and as time goes by and your situation changes, and you can add more relevant elements with their own hashtags.
All the words that are preceded by a #hashtag will be tagged.
P.D:  Here is an example of my own presentation text uploaded on 28.01.2011.
As you can see, I have used many different hashtags to let other users know about the most important details of my Instagram personality.
It’s important for you to know that these #hashtags will make it easier for users that are looking for pictures or people with these keywords to find what they are looking for.

Create a hashtag for an event:

Imagine that you and some of your friends want to share and upload pictures of your last party on Instagram.
It’s very simple, just decide on an original keyword and tag your pictures with a hashtag.
For example:
If all of the Instagram users that are going to this party take pictures and tag the comment with #partynicky2011, it will be very easy to find them on any Instagram search.

Use an Hashtag when promoting a contest!

Some users (and soon brands…) use #hasthtags to organize different types of contests and groups.
If you launch a contest with the theme ‘’Sunset’’ you would then ask all those wanting to compete to put a hashtag such as #sunsetcontest.
This will make it easier for organizers to find all the users and pictures that entered the contest and decide who the winner is.
There is no doubt that this new Instagram upgrade was a big step forward in regards to contest organization, it will be a precious tool for all marketing departments and brands.
We will soon be seeing the vast array of possibilities offered by the use of #hashtags on some of our upcoming posts.

Can I tag old pictures that I previously published without hashtags?

Yes you can.  Simply write a comment in the comments box you shared with your followers and Instagram search engine will take it in account!

Can I put hashtags in other Igers comments?

If you write a comment with a hashtag on your friend’s stream, the IG interface WONT TAKE IT INTO ACCOUNT.
You could suggest a hashtag to a friend but ultimately he will have to add the hashtag on his stream if for it be tagged by the IG App.
This is probably a good functionality to have, imagine how it would be if anyone could tag your pictures?

Is a # (hashtag) similar to @ (at sign) ?

No at all. # Hashtags is for keywords. @ at signs are for communicating.
If I type @cat instead of #cat it would signify that you want write to a user called “cat” and not a mention of the word cat. Be careful!

Where can I find pictures related to a particular keyword?

Go to your profile, tap on “Search Instagram” and then on ‘’Tags”. At this point al you need to do is type the word you’re looking for and the results will appear below the search window.  For example, if you where looking for pictures related to cars you would type #cars.
It’s obvious that the Instagram team will soon have to improve their search engine by adding more search possibilities such as different categories.

Some originals and fun #hashtags

#100likes, #200likes or #300likes. Add these tags to your pictures when they reach 100, 200, 300 or more likes. This will make it easier for users to find pictures that have reached these numbers.

#yournickpop is quite interesting if you want to be able to find your Most Popular Pictures in one place.

#flashbackfriday: Use this tag on Friday’s when you want to post pictures of your past,  of your family, or when you where young. That’s very cool!
#wakeuppics: Some of my friends in Spain started to use that tag on Twitter and now it’s being used on Instagram to upload pictures related to your morning wake up process.
User @iphonequeen launched this idea to help users who want to elaborate on who they are.
Take a look at this #allaboutme search below:

#allaboutme was launched in 29.01.2011, back then we were only 12…just like the 12 apostles!!!

I cant wait to see how it evolves.  Will people use this tag?
#jjchallenge Was lauched by @joshjohnson and @hatchcraft.  The idea is to tag #jjchallenge on your photos that uset he Lomo filter.  This enters you into a contest that could have you win your own Instagram photo printed out and framed in one of Hatchcraft’s beautiful bamboo shadow box frames.


My friend @myriam40a (read the interview) launched another original idea on January 31th 2011.
She decided to create a tutorial using @stoneyhearttutorial to demonstrate the different techniques available if you want to obtain different fun graphic results.
She then created the #stoneyheart tag for users to tag all their pictures that where inspired by the tutorial’s specific techniques.
See picture.


Another example of a great contest is one that was organized by Spanish Cooking TV channel Canal Cocina (@canalcocina),  also very well known for their famous Iphone Cooking App .
@canalcocina organized a contest with the hashtag #canalcocina11, it was promoted as follows:
#canalcocina awards you!
Send your best #cooking or #food or #dishespics with hashtag: #canalcocina11 and the 30 best pictures will receive our famous Canal Cocina’s apron!
Have fun, cook and pic!
(Contest dates: From 2nd Feb to 31th March 2011)

A new and fun hashtag: #yeswecan

Hashtags can also just be about fun, about expressing your feelings or just to make fun of our Instagram addiction…
The following hashtag proves my point: #yeswecan.
One night as I was chatting with @myriam40a and @bbarbosa1 on @inkme stream, @inkme posted a pictures of his naked chest with the following inscription on it: ‘’I love IG’’ ‘’Most Populars’’.
It was a funny picture because he just wanted to highlight the fact that some people were ready to do just about anything to appear on the “Most populars” list.
This gave me the inspiration to come up with a hashtag, a tag that would symbolize the fact that every person in the world has something that is important for them.
That’s where the YES, WE CAN! #yeswecan tag came in.
Instagramer’s “executive committee” decided to use the @inkme naked chest image (previously edited by @hombretecla) to be the main image of the #yeswecan tag in Instagram and in other social networks.
If you think your of your pictures can truly show how big your sense of humour is and how small your fear of ridicule is when trying to get into the ”Most Popular” list, don’t hesitate and upload!

Hashtag #yeswecan

New Original Hashtag: #ministory

Instagramers.com launched a great contest called :Write a story in just a pic!
There are so many things you can say in a single pic. Using Apps like Diptic makes it easier.  Each month, Instagramers.com will publish the best #ministory . It can be real or not. With 2 or up to12 pics in one! Join our hashtag #ministory

Addenda: August 2012.

Instagram app has evolved quite a lot since we published this article at Instagramers. Hashtags remain very important in our daily use of the app and are “heavily” used by Igers in every single pic. Hashtags are useful not only to “organize” pics topics but also to promote our own profiles in important tags searches.
For example, if you tag your pics with most important tags in the app like #Fashion, your pictures (and then profile) will be probably visited by users who look for this topic and this kind of pics.
That´s why some users USE AND ABUSE of tags listing dozens of similar tags without really knowing their meaning and “unconsciously are killing the concept”.

Websites and Mobile Apps that help you managing the best way your hashtags in Instagram.

There is many web browsers like INk361, Statigram, Webstagram offering information of most important hashtags in Instagram and allowing you to know how many million pics are archived under any hashtags. You can have a look to all of them on our Instagramers.com/links section.

Recently Many Mobiles Apps are offering interesting information and managing hashtags tools. Here some of them!

The Instagramers App (iPhone – Free App).
Our Instagramers App allows you to discover who created a tag first! That´s a very interesting information when you want to find the origin of a viral movement, know what a contest goes about or simply want to know who had the idea first. You can download Instagramers App here!
The Instatag App (iPhone – 0,99 c)
With InstaTag App , users can select tags based on category, geo-location or even add their own and tag their best Instagram photos with the most popular and relevant hashtags. You can download it here for just 0,99 c.

The Tag for Likes App (Android – Free offer on launching)

TagsForLikes is a minimal site that aims to help IGers tag their pictures quicker and get more visibility. There is also an Android app and an iPhone one is currently in review. You can download it here!

TopicJacking? Right or Wrong?

TopicJacking? Right or Wrong?

The formula behind successful newsjacking is:

  • Find a newsworthy event
  • Create high quality content
  • Release your content at the moment the news is trending



NewsJacking Success.

The best practice for content optimization is long-tail-keyword optimization. . If you want your content to rank for the term marketing because there are millions searches a day, you quickly find that there are a million other people just like you but with  budgets and larger online credibility already ranking for the term and so your content on marketing ends up lost in Google’s search results, never to be seen.

Long tail keywords are the answer. Add more search terms to the keyword, marketing so that you make the topic of your content more unique… marketing content  for social media… now you can rank higher… but not to many look for that….yet

This is TopicJacking.

TopicJacking is newsjacking –   influential and popular information that can amplify your own content.

The idea behind TopicJacking is to find a topic that is related to the one you are writing about that is already popular. Then, link to that related topic from your already-long-tail-optimized content.

When you publish your content  leave comments on  highly shared blogs. Pretty quickly people see your contributions and are likely to look at your content… and your blog…You’re borrowing the popularity of other topics to accelerate the organic process of being found, building credibility and expanding your own reach and authority. This is TopicJacking.


  •  index of relevant trending topics
  • Profiles of authors writing or talking about relevant topics
  • Analysis of your own content to find popular related topics

If you’re not TopicJacking, you’re missing one of the most powerful  techniques for content SEO. You Better get at it

Show How I Made 60,000 On Fiverr In 6 Months

         Show How I Made 60,000 On Fiverr In 6 Months

HI my name is Justin Matthew also known as JMHHACKER. I started this blog because I have seen over millions of people trying to make a living on a site called www.fiverr.com

Less then 200 people out of those millions make over 10 grand. Less then 100 over 20k and less then 10 made what I made over 60,000.

AS YOU SEE HERE THIS GIG ALONE HAD 93 PENDING at 20 bucks average each
This photo shows 50,000 in revenue

Now I have seen these so called ebooks come out on how to make a fortune on fiverr and let me tell you they are BS. In fact to this very day I have yet to see anyone show video or photos of making more then a few hundred a week.

STARTED MY OWN COMPANY WITH THE FIVERR MONEY  www.monopolizesocialmedia.com

Well that is about to change on the blog itself you see I added a video bar those alone show thousands a week. I will also insert photos of this feat. At my top I was getting 340 orders a week and making 3,300 a week about 500 a day over 13,000 a month.


 I did this for 6 months made 60,000 and had enough it was to much work and I saw quickly that the most I could ever make was 140,000 working 100 hours a week. 

In this photo below I made about 9,000 in 19 days on fiverr. I took pictures the whole time :)

Well I wanted something more for myself so I used the fiverr money and founded a corporation where I now sell those 5 or 50 dollar services for 1,000 or 5,000 yes really. Check it out www.monopolizesocialmedia.com I am the CEO and founder.

I also went on to publish my first book which just yesterday hit the top 25 best sellers list on AMAZON as I used google plus as the foundation of all my fiverr sales.

HERE JUST IN 1 DAY I MADE 3,600 DOLLARS 10 days ago!  Check it out www.monopolizesocialmedia.com I am the CEO and founder.

The point is fiverr made this possible and now I enjoy a great life. If you want to come on this fiverr journey with me I will tell all. Watch the videos first for proof.

So this blog will be about how I started what methods I used how I promoted everything. Enjoy the show.

Web security for Everyone

Web Security For Everyone

Usually articles like this are written in the language GEEK.

Well I am going to put it in our terms. Simple ways we can take to maintain maximum security for minimum effort.

Secure physically

  • Don’t leave your laptop and mobile devices unsecured in public or in the workplace
  • Do not use unvetted media, such as thumb drives and CDs, in your devices
  • Do not leave your devices powered up while you are not there to watch over them.

Secure digitally

Every device offers you the option of securing it digitally. My laptop,  requires a password..

 For my laptop it is available under the Control Panel,

On my mobile phone, an Android OS device, you can set the screen lock and password in much the same way, under the Location and Security settings.

If you set up your devices so that they default to password-protected when not being used, or can be locked when you step away from them, there is much less of a chance that someone will slip in and use your accounts to commit some perfidious act, or hit your device with a malware-infected medium of some sort.
Use built-in security tools
All devices come with security measures.  I can encrypt the contents of my hard drive using BitLocker Drive Encryption. Anyone attempting to access the contents of my drive remotely will not have fun.

 Your goal should be to make it more trouble than it’s worth,like having a home alarm sign he can go to the next guy!

Make sure your firewall is turned on and adjusted to whatever height you are willing to put up with. Too high and it will ping you for permission to do practically anything; too low and it might as well be turned off.

Regardless of what type of software and service you use, make sure you automatically update your virus definitions on a regular basis and that you schedule regular, frequent scans of your device.
Your email

Third party email providers—which is to say, all email providers—may well keep copies of your emails, even after you delete them from your account.

Those companies, almost all of whom are large U.S.-based media companies,  turn over information on their users, including their emails, whenever asked to do so legally.

Browse securely
The easiest way to securely browse the Internet is to do so in a way that does not divulge to anyone what you are looking at, who you are, and where you are browsing from.

You can get around this sort of identification by using a proxy server.

 As a user, you go to the proxy site and the proxy site fetches Web sites for you, making it more difficult for anyone to pinpoint your actual location or identify you by your computer’s IP address.

There are many lists of proxies available with a quick search.

Facebook, Twitter and to many to name.
Sites like Facebook, Twitter and other social networks are additional entry points for hijackers

What makes sites like Facebook and Twitter dangerous in terms of our security is our tendency to just chat on as though we were among friends, instead of among “friends.”

We often give out contextualizing information that can lead to our being identified, even when we’re being careful. When we’re not being careful, it’s even worse. Spouses’ names, cities of residence, even the street we live on might be mentioned, allowing ne’er-do-wells to perpetrate social hacks based on information tailored to specific targets, a type of scam known as “spearphishing.”

Clamp down. Find the maximal security settings for any social network you’re using and employ them. With Twitter, make your account private, so only those you allow can follow you. In Facebook, choose sharing with your “friends” as your default, across-the-board selection. I JUST DID THIS.

When chatting/emailing you can’t always trust the other person to not pass along your conversation,“The human element is always the biggest.

They don’t want to spend a dime but want the info. GL


 What we must do is decide how much time and trouble we are willing to go to in order to reach what we believe to be an adequate level of security for our personal needs, that of our families and of our companies.

And probably, we can reach that level.   At the very least, promise you won’t leave your stuff lying around and that you’ll slap a password on anywhere one will go.
