How Jamaican can make money online – Flyer Distribution of Shortened URL Links in USA and other Countries

If you’ve read my articles on making money online from Referral Website links (Deer, 2015, June 8), you’d have noticed that it lists Adf.ly, a URL shortening service. There are hundreds of these services (Make money with URL, 2017) that can be used to shorten website links.

Shielded with a bit.ly (to make it more aesthetical pleasing!) and then placed online or in the Sunday Gleaner to make money from website traffic. As usual, you have to have the following things in place:

  • Paypal Account (Deer, 2015, September 9) as your main Payment Gateway
  • Payoneer Account (Deer, 2015, September 10), an Bank of America Prepaid Debit Card
  • Scotia VISA Debit (Deer, 2012, February 13) or CIBC First Caribbean VISA Debit Card
  • Broadband Internet at home from FLOW or Digicel Play (Deer, 2016, June 28)
  • Notebook or Journal to keep Track of all your Online Accounts and Passwords
  • Portfolio of Published Written Work on a blog or Website online i.e. Blogs, e-books
  • A VPN (Virtual Private Network) Connection
  • A Friend or relative living abroad

You’ll need the Paypal Account (Deer, 2015, September 9) to be able to receive payments from Credit Card purchases (Deer, 2013, September 16) and the Payoneer Account (Deer, 2015, September 10) to be able to spend locally. The Scotia VISA Debit Card (Deer, 2012, February 13) or CIBC First Caribbean VISA Debit Card is just to verify your Paypal Account.

Broadband Internet at home from FLOW or Digicel Play (Deer, 2016, June 28) is a must. A friend or relative abroad with a US address is also great.  But you can easily use your ShipMe (Deer, 2013, September 15) address to sign up for some of these surveys and a free VPN on smartphones and now Desktop computers (Deer, 2016, September 20) thanks to the Opera Browser.

So what are the best URL shortening websites that make the most money? And how do you push Traffic to the shortened URL link?

URL Shortening Websites – Sharing Referral links for Payoneer is profitable

First, here is a list of the best URL shortening websites:

Most of these websites average from as low as US$3 per 1000 to up to US$10 per 1000 clicks. This is in addition to the money you’ll make from the Referral Website links (Deer, 2015, June 8), you are sharing.

In fact, many of these URL shortening websites, such as Linkshrink, also have their own referral programs. I personally share my Payoneer (Deer, 2015, September 10) referral link, as you can make up to US$25 per person that signs up and makes $100 using the Prepaid Card……along with the money from the clicks on the url shortening website!

But let’s do some math.

Assuming that these figures are daily traffic, it is nowhere near as profitable as Webcam modelling (Deer, 2016, October 15) which can make as much as US$3,000 up to US$51,000 per month!

Worse, advertising in the local Gleaner will not achieve that many clicks per day, as Jamaicans are not know to read the Sunday Gleaner, muchless click on links on their computers or smartphones. So you have to place the links somewhere where it’ll get a lot of traffic.

Fiverr to the rescue – Flyer distribution and website posting to drive traffic to your website

The best option is to join fiverr and then pay for the services of a Flyer distribution freelancer on the website. To find them, simply search for “Flyer distribution” and then use the filters on the left to select the top sellers of the service.

You then design your own flyer with the shortened url link as a part of the flyer and upload the flyer to the seller of the service. I usually advise that you take that link obtained from any one of these services and shorten it with bit.ly or tiny.url, as they allow you to customize the name of your link.

You can also use a website traffic seller on fiverr. Just search for “drive traffic to website” and use the filters on the left to select the top sellers of the service. Some of these website traffic sellers do not like shortened url, so choose wisely.

Once done, this will generate enough traffic to easily hit the 1000 visit per day quota. Best of all, while website traffic sellers delivers traffic for a fixed period of time, flyers tend to last a lot longer, especially those posted in Far East countries i.e. “China”, “Hong Kong”, “Saudi Arabia”, “Kuwait”, “Bahrain”, etc.

Sharing is truly caring. So share this very interesting and guaranteed way to make money from both Referral websites and shortened URL links!

How Jamaicans can make money online – Paypal Prepaid Card and other Payoneer Alternatives

Payoneer is mighty convenient way to receive funds if you work online. However, the banking charges to withdraw money are very high, making mainly consider alternatives (Deer, 2015, March 14) to Payoneer. Not to mention the hassle of having to call Paypal at 1-888-221-1161 to add your Paypal Prepaid MasterCard.

Paypal Prepaid MasterCard is basically a Card for your Paypal Account. To get one, you’ll need:

  • An American Address
  • An American SSN (Social Security Number)
  • A VPN (Virtual Private Network)

The American Address and SSN can be obtained from relatives or friends abroad and the VPN (Deer, 2014, September 20) you can purchase online, which can be used for working online as well as streaming online video (Deer, 2015, September 1) Service such as Hulu or Netflix.

Your American Address can be obtained from a local Jamaican courier service (Deer, 2014, August 24) or you can use the address of the relative or friend who lives in the US of A.

When they receive the Paypal Prepaid MasterCard, you can have them send it down to you in the mail within three (3) to four (4) working days so that you can use it out here in Jamaica to withdraw funds.

Please note when checking your Account balance online, you have to login via a VPN in order to appear as if you’re in the US of A.

If you’re not so crazy about using a VPN, there are three (3) other great alternatives to a Payoneer Prepaid Mastercard that worked the exact same way and have the same requirements:

  1. Paxum
  2. EcoPayz
  3. OkPay

Ordering online involves submitting the same information and the card is sent down in your mail in two (2) months time. As with Payoneer, you can use your Card to receive money for doing work online.

You can also link it to your Paypal Account, thus allowing you to withdraw money from your Paypal Account form any ATM that supports Mastercard.

In my next article, I’ll show you how to get a Scotia VISA Debit Card or CIBC First Caribbean VISA Debit Card to make purchases online and how to top up you Paypal Account using your bank Account.

Why ProReviewly has the Best long range rifle scopes

If you are looking for the best long range rifle scopes out there, chances are you have heard a lot of different answers. Long range rifles scopes vary immensely in terms of the quality and specifications.

The trick is to look around and make sure you know what you want in a scope, as well as becoming familiar with the different options and what rifle scopes have to offer. It does not hurt to be informed about different specifications for scopes, such as magnification, reticle, objective lens size, field of view, and resolution.

Long range rifle scopes are usually classified as those that are best used at two hundreds or more. Unlike scopes used for close range hunting, long range rifle scopes are going to have a higher magnification, a larger size of objective lens, and a smaller field of view.

Most hunters opt for a long range scope that has variable magnification, meaning that the scope’s degree of magnification can be changed. You will also want to consider prices when you look at the best rifle scopes.

Getting a higher price scope could certainly be worth the investment and pay off in the long run. Here are some of the best long range rifle scopes on the market as featured on ProReviewly.

Leupold VX-3 6.5-20x50mm

The Leupold VX-3 comes from one the top manufactures of rifle scopes. With a variable magnification of 6.5-20x and an objective lens of 50mm, it is sure to come in handy as a scope for longer ranges.

The scope has a Fine Duplex reticle or cross hair. This means that besides the regular cross hair, the reticle has thicker lines that become narrow as they move into the center of the lens.

The field of view is 14.3 feet with a tube diameter of 30 mm. The scope is fairly light at roughly fourteen inches and twenty ounces in weight.

Sightron SIII Long Range 8-32x56mm

The Sightron SIII Long Range is an incredible rifle scope to use for long distances. The scope’s variable magnification is 8 to 32x with an objective lens size of 56 mm.

The objective bell of the scope is pretty long so keep that in mind when mounting it. The scope is adjusted for wind and elevation, and the range of both of those is 70.

The reticle is MOA-2 which looks like a normal cross hairs but dashes on them for more accurate aiming. The tube diameter is 30 mm with a field of view around 12 feet. The scope weighs approximately twenty-five ounces with a length of about sixteen inches.

Nightforce NBR 8-32X 56mm

The Nightforce NBR is a high-quality tube from Nightforce Precision Optics. This particular model has a magnification of 8 to 32 times larger than the naked eye, and the objective lens is 56 mm in size.

The reticle is NP-R2, which is widely different than normal cross hairs. Instead of looking like a large plus sign, this reticle looks more like a T in the center of the lens, and the lines do not extend all the way across the field of view. The scope has an internal adjustment range for wind and elevation of 50.

The scope is 30 mm in diameter, weighs about thirty-six ounces with a length of about seventeen inches. The scope only has a mounting length of about five and a half inches.

Vortex Viper PST 6-24x 50mm

The Vortex Viper PST is a long range rifle scope from another leading manufacturer of high-quality optics. The scope has a magnification range of 6 to 24 times with an objective lens size of 50 mm.

The reticle on this scope is an illuminated EBR-1. The EBR-1 looks like a normal cross hair with smaller dashes for more precise aiming. It also has thicker lines on the side and the bottom of the cross hair.

The scope has a field of view around seventeen to five feet, and an eye relief of 4 mm. The scope has an internal adjustment range of 65 for elevation and wind.

The scope is also 30 mm in diameter, is fifteen and a half inches long, and has a weight of twenty-three ounces.

Bushnell Elite 6500 4.5-30 x 50mm

The Bushnell Elite 6500 comes from another high-quality manufacturer of sport optics. The company is an industry leader and has been for over sixty years.

The Bushnell Elite has a magnification of 4.5 to 30x, and like many long range rifle scopes, has an objective lens size of 50 mm. The scope has a Mil-Dot reticle, meaning it looks like a typical cross hairs, except that the thicker lines narrow into thinner lines with dots overlaid for accuracy.

The scope has a field of view of 21 by 3 feet and an eye relief of 4 mm. The internal adjustment range of wind and elevation is 50 and has a tube diameter of 30 mm. The scope weighs twenty-one ounces with a length of thirteen and a half inches.

 

Free movies on Crackle, Hoopla, Internet Archive, Tubi TV, Vudu, Yahoo View and YouTube

Streaming becoming ever popular in Jamaica, it was only a matter of time before a few clever entrepreneurs and companies with loads of content realized that they could provide free movie streaming.

After all, the roving eyes of the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) can’t be everywhere. So without further ado, here is a list of six (6) websites that legally allow you to stream movies:

All these websites are ad-supported and only require the visitor to sign up to a free account to join.

Perhaps YouTube is the most surprising; I’ve found and watched quite a bit of full-length movies on that website.

Sharing is Caring so share this list with as many of your movie-watching peeps as you can.

How to recover deleted Data from internal memory of an Android Smartphone or Tablet

Yes, despite what you may have heard, it is possible to recover lost or deleted files from the internal storage of an Android mobile device. This is assuming the phone or tablet is operational and you can set it in to Debugging mode.

The following procedure will work with most devices, specifically:

  1. Samsung
  2. HTC
  3. Alcatel
  4. Huawei

Please note it’ll also work for the following Android OS:

  1. Android 1.6. Donut
  2. Android 2.1. Eclair
  3. Android 2.2. Froyo
  4. Android 2.3. Gingerbread
  5. Android 3.0. Honeycomb
  6. Android 4.0. Ice Cream Sandwich
  7. Android 4.4. KitKat

It will not work on Android 4.1. Jelly Bean as UMS (USB Mass Storage) option is not available.

So let’s begin.

How to Recover Data from an Android device – Connect like an External Harddrive

First, you need to set your smartphone to be seen as an external storage device, you need to go into Developer mode and change the Android settings on the phone or tablet.

For Android 2.1-2.3.7 devices, use the following instructions:

  1. Click on Menu
  2. Click on Settings
  3. Click on Applications
  4. Click on Development
  5. Click on USB debugging

For Android 4.0-4.1.2 devices, use the following instructions:

  1. Open Setting
  2. Click on ….
  3. Select USB utilities
  4. Select Connect Storage to PC

For Android 4.0-4.1.2 devices, use the following instructions:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on About Phone/Tablet
  3. Click on Build Number at the end of the Scroll list
  4. Click on Build Number 7 times

Android 4.2 smartphone or tablets do not have an easily available option for USB Debugging option. But it isn’t missing, just well hidden. To get to the Developer mode, use the following instructions:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click on About Phone/Tablet
  3. Click on “Build Number” at the end of the Scroll list
  4. Click on “Build Number” repeatedly for 7 times

Good to note at the third tap you’ll be told that you only have 4 more taps to go; so keep tapping until it switches over to developer mode.

Recovery time – My favourite Data Recovery pics

Once you are in Developer mode, then do the following to recover data.

  1. Connect your phone/tablet to your PC via a USB cable
  2. Pull down the status bar
  3. Select USB connected
  4. Select the button which reads Connect storage to PC

Reconnect the USB cable and try again until you see this option. Then once it is detected as a Removable memory with an assigned drive letter, you root the device using Khangoroot.

Then you can launch any recovery software program (Deer, 2013, August 3). My preferred data recovery software choices are:

  1. AnyMP4 Android Data Recovery
  2. File Recovery Ultimate 15.0.5
  3. iLike Android Data Recovery Pro
  4. Active@ File Recovery Ultimate 15.0.5
  5. Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android
  6. Aiseesoft Android Data Recovery
  7. EaseUS MobiSaver for Android
  8. Remo Recover for Android
  9. Recuva Pro
  10. Getdata’s Recover My Files

When recovery is complete, use Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media option to eject the device and turn off USB Debugging mode on the Android device. Sharing is caring so share this post with as many of your friends as you can.
