tips-to-avoid-inactive-lifestyle

People who sit for extended periods and are not active tend to feel more depressed and have a greater risk of suffering from heart disease, which has the potential to be fatal. It is often quite frustrating to find out this information, especially for those who work in industries where they need to sit for hours at a time to do their work. Many people work for eight or more hours each day, which means they could be sitting for most of that time during the day.

It is important to get a bit of exercise in each day to reap the different health benefits that are associated with exercising. The benefits of exercise include

  • Burning off consumed calories
  • Maintaining a much healthier weight
  • Developing stronger bones
  • Reducing stress
  • Reducing feelings of depression
  • Naturally feeling energized
  • Preventing bouts of insomnia

My Survival MD Review (Updated: 2018)

My Review of Survival MD by Robert Grey

My review of Survival MD can be described as a first aid guide on the use of steroids. It is a unique book that contains practical information that is applicable in the real world. This means that it can be utilized several medical emergencies. The worst situation that any individual can find themselves in is watching an injured loved one suffer in pain because you have no clue on administering medical aid.

It is a relatively common situation as most people lack the basic knowledge of administering first aid. The feeling of helplessness is paralyzing as tends to be a scary situation.

Additional Reading:

Mr Robert Grey has had firsthand experience with this situation, this was when Hurricane Katrina struck, and he lost a loved one because emergency care was inaccessible, and he could not perform first aid.

It is that grief that prompted Robert to swear that he will try to educate as many individuals as he can on administering immediate help so that they could save their loved ones.

Robert met Dr Radu Scurtu in Romania after a lot of legwork and research. Dr Radu was forced to invent personal techniques that were both effective and basic since he was far from modern medical facilities standard in the US as well as other developed countries.

When Robert noticed that Dr Radu’s techniques were first aid oriented, they collaborated to publish Survival MD.

It is a guide that has caught the globe’s attention via online platforms thus becoming an online bestseller. The best aspect of the guide is that it can be used by laymen to administer first aid in emergencies.

The practical applications of Dr Scurtus can be utilized in the treatment of patients with injuries and victims of tragedies or natural disasters. It allows victims to persevere until professional medical help can be provided. Therefore, the primary aim of Survival MD is giving people a fighting chance for survival.

Ok, So Here’s What I Didn’t Like About Survival MD…

There are a few limitations of using Survival MD as a first aid guide; the notable ones are as follows:

  1. The first aid guide is quite extensive; this means that users must digest little bits of information to avoid being overwhelmed by the content. Slow and steady reading is tiresome for most people who would prefer skimming through superficially hence missing the point.
  2. Survival MD might be very comprehensive regarding the information contained therein, but some situations need a doctor’s expertise. What it does is to equip one with useful information that is required for immediate remedial action to provide yourself or someone else a fighting chance of survival until proper medical attention can be provided.
  3. The absolutely ridiculous sales page hype and video’s. My goodness. Take a look at them below:

Proper preparation makes its luck hence get your copy today and benefit.

Best Console Gaming Monitors in 2018 (Xbox One X and PS4 Pro)

Best Console Gaming Monitor in 2018

Xbox One X & PS4 Pro Gaming Monitors in 2018

Console gaming on a monitor is evolving for good with the introduction of new technologies. HDR monitors are catching the imagination of the people as they provide out of the box experience to the gamers. It is one of the main reasons that the new Xbox One X and PS4 Pro also support this feature. These “High Dynamic Range” products provide you better colours and contrast and as a result, you get more immersive and realistic experience while you are playing games. It is the next big thing and it is the best time to invest in this new technology.

The issue is that at the time of writing, there are very limited options of true HDR gaming monitors in the market. Many companies have announced that they are going to release these gems in the first or second quarter of 2018. This list of best console gaming monitors for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro will be updated as soon as those items are released. We have already added a few top contenders in this list.

Basic things you should know are that PS4 Pro does not support 1440p resolution. Images displayed will be downscaled to 1080p and there is no support for HDMI 1.4.  Therefore, if you own PS4 Pro, you should look for a monitor with 4K, HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0 capability. If you own XBOX One X, both 1440p and 4K options would work for you but you should go for the latter if you have the budget. It is compatible with AMD FreeSync technology and it is also getting HDMI 2.1 in coming days through a firmware update.

My Favourite Console Gaming Monitors

I did thorough research before picking these beasts. Hopefully, you would be able to find a product which perfectly suits your needs.

1. Samsung C32HG70 32-Inch HDR QLED Curved Gaming Monitor

This is a very nice choice for your Xbox One X. It is equipped with mind-boggling quantum dot technology which delivers up to 1 billion accurate colours on the display. It offers 2560×1440 QHD resolution on 31.5 inches curved VA panel. This monitor comes with HDR, therefore, it will make sure that you get breathtaking images and you don’t miss even minute details while playing games.

Samsung C32HG70 design with black and metallic grey finish is quite pleasing to the eyes. The curve of the display is well thought out and immerses you in every action which is happening on your computer screen. There is a blue led ring on the back which adds more coolness to the design. You can turn it off when you don’t feel the need for it. The dual-hinge stand is capable of swivel, height adjustment, tilt and pivot. You can also mount it on the wall when required.

This monitor has AMD FreeSync 2 support along with 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. These are just outstanding specs for any professional gamer. These will definitely make your console gaming experience smooth and any kind of latency or input lag will become a thing of past. If that was not enough, there are factory calibrated game modes too for any genre.

The maximum brightness level is 350 cd/m2 but it can peak to 600 cd/m2 when HDR feature is on. There are decent connectivity options in C32HG70 with two HDMI 2.0 ports and one DisplayPort. Two USB 3.0 ports are also present in which one offers fast charging.

2. Dell UltraSharp U2718Q 27-Inch UHD Monitor

This Dell 27 inches IPS monitor offers outstanding visuals with 3840×2160 4K resolution and HDR10. It eliminates the borders with InfinityEdge and fills the length and breadth of content. Due to the higher dynamic range, the monitor displays an array of colours. The quality of the monitor is outstanding as it is one of the best in terms of clarity. Colours, shadows, and details are displayed with amazing clarity before the eyes.

The stand is thin but can very well hold the weight of the screen. It facilitates you with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment. Bottom right of the monitor comprises of OSD buttons which can be used to switch on and off the screen beside navigating through the menus. It provides a number of connectivity ports with one HDMI 2.0, DP, mDP and four USB 3.0 ports.

Dell U2718Q has the capability to display billions of colours in the 27-inch area. HDR automatically comes into play when you connect it for video gaming to PS4 Pro or Xbox One X. It also works seamlessly with Blu-ray players. Our only gripe is lack of adaptive sync option and average refresh rate. Each monitor is factory calibrated so you don’t have to go through the menu yourself and change the settings yourself.

Adding anti-glare coating makes the monitor ideal for the eyes. You can continue watching movies and playing games without the dangers of harmful reflection. Even if people open the windows during bright sunshine, the picture quality of U2718Q is not affected.

Due to a large screen, the UHD content is displayed with superior resolution. A contrast ratio of 1300:1 and maximum brightness level of 350 cd/m² improves the visibility of the images to a significant extent. Due to calibration up to 99% of sRGB, the clarity of the pictures is absolutely stunning. It is a very good mid-range 4K monitor for Xbox One X or PS4 Pro with support for HDR.

3. ASUS VP28UQG 28 Inch 4K FreeSync Gaming Monitor

Gone are the days when Ultra HD monitors created a hole in the pocket because the latest offering from ASUS has reduced the price significantly. Although the search for graphics card hasn’t ended, the situation is becoming brighter for the gamers. This product from the company certainly brings light of hope for the gaming ninjas.

Its UHD panel with 3840 x 2160 resolution and 157PPI outputs sharp and stunning graphics. Maximum luminance can go up to 350 cd/m². It uses TN panel so extreme viewing angles aren’t great but they still aren’t as bad as we have noticed in some other monitors. Visuals do look crisp on it while playing games or watching movies and we don’t have any complaint as far as display performance is concerned. Thankfully, it comes with AMD FreeSync and 1ms response time. It will really help in fighting issues like motion blur and screen tearing.

There is a 5-way OSD joystick on the back which provides easy access to on-screen display options and GamePlus menu. With GamePlus, gamers can practice and improve their gaming skills. It has features like a crosshair, timer, FPS counter and display alignment.

There are 8 preset modes included in the product. The Eyecare technology of Asus plays an important role in reducing blue light and flickering on the screen. You can watch games for long hours on the screen and still your eyesight may not get affected by strain and other ailments.

When it comes to connectivity, this monitor provides two HDMI 2.0 ports and one DisplayPort. The stand of this product is a bit wobbly and provides only tilt support. It does have VESA mount support if you want to mount it on the stand or on the wall.

Asus VP28UQG is definitely a very good choice for X1X or PS4 Pro. Some users who reviewed this item after using it with the latest PlayStation and Xbox One X said that it works really well with it. Although it lacks HDR support, it still offers 4K, 1ms response time and FreeSync over HDMI or DisplayPort. Therefore, if high dynamic range feature is not a deal breaker for you, this will be an excellent pick for you.

4. LG 32UD59-B 32-Inch 4K UHD Monitor with FreeSync

The product from LG has catapulted to the pinnacle of success. It is bundled with lots of attributes to ensure seamless viewing of the movies and games. The monitor is instrumental in covering 95% of DCI P3 colour space. It is equivalent to the standard followed by the film industry. The images on this VA panel belong to cinematic theatre category as they are displayed in a variety of colours. RGB colour space under the new technology is filled with red and blue colours. Compared to sRGB, the DCI has 25% larger gamut of colours.

Real-time pictures attract the attention of the people. LG performance in delivering high-quality visuals is a boon for not only the conventional users but also gamers. HDCP 2.2 compatibility with the monitor ensures that ultra HD content plays on Blu-ray disc, games and streaming services without any difficulty. You can watch the videos in 4K and marvel at the quality of the pictures and the text.

Presence of AMD FreeSync is an icing on the cake for the users. It is especially beneficial for Xbox One X users. Difference between the frame rate of graphics card and the monitor refresh rate causes tearing and stuttering, however, the above-mentioned technology eliminates the issue. If users are playing heavy duty and high-resolution games, the fluid movement of the video catches the attention. Due to the absence of time lag, people will enjoy the experience. Dynamic action sync is also included which offers fast-paced RTS gameplay to the gaming enthusiasts. They do not experience an iota of time lag. Due to the absence of input lag, users do not face interruption during high voltage scenario.

The black stabilizer is the latest technology included in the eclectic mix. It plays an important role in making the images brighter in the dark scenes. The capability is a boon especially when you have to find the hidden enemies in the virtual world. The downside for some people is that there is no HDR for crystal clear Xbox One X and PS4 Pro console gaming. If you can live without high dynamic range, then you would surely enjoy playing games on both consoles.

The stand of 32UD59-B comes with height adjustment facility. Users can either raise or lower the monitor according to their desires and preferences. It doesn’t have any other option like tilt or pivot but you can mount it easily because of VESA support. There are two HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 ports to fulfil your connectivity needs.

OSD calibration is accomplished by accessing the black stabilizer, game modes and the dynamic action buttons on the central pad. Gaming modes are similar to image presets which helps in reducing the lags by a factor of 50%. As the time decreases, you will not notice trails on the screen especially when the objects are moving at a fast pace.

5. Samsung U28E590D 28-Inch UHD LED-Lit Monitor

This offering from the company delivers sharp graphics with 4K resolution. The product imbibes wonderful grayscale performance coupled with speedy pixel response. It has TN panel with 170° horizontal and 160° vertical viewing angle. Luminance level mentioned in the specs is 370 cd/m² which means that you would be able to to do gaming on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X in quite a bright environment.

It is housed in a black cabinet and with 0.75-inch bezels. The monitor is equipped with anti-glare coating that is non-reflective. Instead of having hosts of buttons, a single jog button is situated on the back side of the product to change the settings. A single button on Samsung is more intuitive to control the displays. People do not have to deal with a plethora of buttons as it happened in the past. Base sports minimalist design with nicely finished plastic and steel to make the product durable.

The monitor can be tilted from -2° to +15°, however, you may have to use both hands to accomplish the task. There are two HDMI ports on the back. One is version 1.4 whereas the other one is 2.0. You need to make sure that you 2.0 port to get 4K content at 60Hz. It also has DisplayPort 1.2 which also let you view games and movies at the 60Hz refresh rate.

Jog button plays an important role in manipulating the settings and adjusting the menus. Picture menu includes not only brightness but also contrast, sharpness and magic angle settings. The last option provides optimal picture based on the viewing angle of the users.

If you want customized coloured images, use the red, green and blue saturation level adjustments. In addition, use 6 coloured and gamma temperature settings to get the desired picture on the screen. 4K images are sharp, versatile and look amazing on 3480×2160 resolution. Highlight, shadows and other details are clearly displayed. The accuracy of the pictures is comparable to other top-end models. Red and green colours are quite near to the benchmark coordinates. Skin tones of the players look surreal while rapid pixel response offers ghost free imagery to the users. It comes with AMD FreeSync and 1ms response time, therefore, your console gaming ride will be very smooth.

Eco saving attribute of the monitor makes it indispensable for the users. In this mode, it consumes only 19 watts of power. Compared to the other brands, the offering from Samsung is more energy friendly.

Conclusion

The above list contains some of the best console gaming monitors on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. We know that the above list could use some more HDR monitors but we have discussed already that market has very limited 4K HDR monitors at the moment. We still added some best options here after detailed research. When new high dynamic range monitors for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will come into the market in coming months, we will update this list with more good options.

PRICING

Gеtrеѕроnѕе іѕ, оn the whоlе, cheaper than many оf іtѕ kеу соmреtіtоrѕ, раrtісulаrlу if уоu have a lоt оf еmаіl аddrеѕѕеѕ оn your dаtаbаѕе. For еxаmрlе, if you hаvе a mailing lіѕt соntаіnіng bеtwееn 9,000 аnd 10,000 rесоrdѕ, уоu’ll fіnd thаt hosting іt wіth Gеtrеѕроnѕе соѕtѕ $65 реr mоnth – $4 реr mоnth сhеареr thаn with Awеbеr; $10 cheaper thаn Mailchimp аnd еіthеr $24 or a whорріng $85 сhеареr thаn Campaign Monitor (Cаmраіgn Mоnіtоr’ѕ рrісіng structure dереndѕ not juѕt thе number оf email addresses on your database but on hоw mаnу еmаіlѕ уоu send tоо). Thе оnlу competing service I саn find thаt соmеѕ in cheaper іѕ Mаd Mimi (although thе functionality offered bу Mаd Mіmі іѕ not аnуwhеrе near as extensive), whісh charges $42 реr mоnth. At thе ѕmаllеr dаtаbаѕе end of thіngѕ, Getresponse’s pricing іѕ рrеttу соmреtіtіvе too – уоu can hоѕt a dаtаbаѕе оf 1,000 еmаіl аddrеѕѕеѕ fоr $15 a month with Gеtrеѕроnѕе, соmраrеd tо $29 with Awber; and $29 / $59 оn Campaign Mоnіtоr.

It is wоrth noting however thаt ѕоmе соmреtіng рrоvіdеrѕ оffеr completely frее ассоuntѕ fоr uѕеrѕ with a ѕmаll numbеr оf rесоrdѕ (but thеѕе dо nоt uѕuаllу offer thе full rаngе оf fеаturеѕ that уоu get on a раіd рlаn).

 

KEY FEATURES OF GETRESPONSE

Getresponse’s fеаturе set іѕ оnе of thе mоѕt соmрrеhеnѕіvе out thеrе. Key features іnсludе:

  • a wіdе range оf templates
  • еxсеllеnt аutоrеѕроndеr funсtіоnаlіtу
  • rеѕроnѕіvе email dеѕіgnѕ

  • a free landing page creator.

There’s also a truckload оf other fеаturеѕ thаt you don’t gеt wіth mаnу оthеr ѕоlutіоnѕ – but tо bе fair ones уоu wіll probably never gеt rоund tо using, like a QR соdе generator оr an іStосkрhоtо gallery (then again, you nеvеr knоw…).

Getresponse wаѕ аhеаd оf its competitors for ѕоmе tіmе wіth its rеѕроnѕіvе email dеѕіgn funсtіоnаlіtу: thіѕ automatically аdjuѕtѕ уоur е-nеwѕlеttеr’ѕ template ѕо thаt if a uѕеr іѕ reading іt оn a ѕmаrtрhоnе, thе lауоut аnd fоntѕ will be аutоmаtісаllу орtіmіѕеd for іt. Most соmреtіng рrоduсtѕ hаvе саught uр wіth thіѕ nоw, but Gеtrеѕроnѕе is bеttеr thаn most similar products when it соmеѕ to dіѕрlауіng a smartphone preview оf your е-nеwѕlеttеr – уоu ѕіmрlу hіt a ‘mobile рrеvіеw’ button tо get аn іnѕtаnt ѕnарѕhоt оf what уоur еmаіl lооkѕ lіkе оn a ѕmаrtрhоnе (ѕее image rіght).

Anоthеr Getresponse feature that ѕtаndѕ оut іѕ its ѕрlіt tеѕtіng functionality – іt’ѕ more соmрrеhеnѕіvе than thаt provided bу several соmреtіtоrѕ, bесаuѕе іt аllоwѕ уоu to split test uр tо five dіffеrеnt mеѕѕаgеѕ – Awеbеr аllоwѕ up tо 4 variations; Cаmраіgn Monitor аllоwѕ 2; Mailchimp аllоwѕ 2; Mad Mimi dоеѕn’t рrоvіdе ѕрlіt tеѕtіng at аll.

Fіnаllу, ѕоmеthіng thаt dеѕеrvеѕ a bіg mention іѕ thаt the 30-dау frее trial thаt Gеtrеѕроnѕе оffеr dоеѕ not come with a requirement to рrоvіdе сrеdіt саrd details – this hеlрѕ уоu аvоіd thаt annoying “оорѕ I forgot I ѕіgnеd uр fоr thаt trіаl аnd now I’m getting сhаrgеd for a product I dоn’t uѕе” scenario.

 

GETRESPONSE E-NEWSLETTER TEMPLATES

For me, this іѕ whеrе Gеtrеѕроnѕе fаllѕ down a bit: I thіnk thе tеmрlаtеѕ рrоvіdеd оut оf the bоx lооk rаthеr dаtеd; they аrе сеrtаіnlу nоt аѕ attractive аѕ thоѕе оffеrеd bу Mailchimp (and I ѕlіghtlу рrеfеr Aweber’s оffеrіng here tоо).

On the рluѕ side, they аrе vеrу tweakable – уоu саn сhаngе fоntѕ, lауоutѕ аnd іmаgеrу using the controls рrоvіdеd; аnd of соurѕе thеrе is nоthіng to ѕtор уоu simply designing уоur оwn HTML еmаіl tеmрlаtе and іmроrtіng іt. Addіtіоnаllу, thеrе аrе tons of templates to сhооѕе frоm, and thеу аrе рrеѕеntеd in еаѕу-tо-undеrѕtаnd саtеgоrіеѕ – so іt іѕ gеnеrаllу рrеttу straightforward tо find a gооd ѕtаrtіng роіnt for a tеmрlаtе аnd еdіt it untіl you are happy with thе dеѕіgn.

Anоthеr grіре I have with Gеtrеѕроnѕе’ѕ tеmрlаtеѕ соnсеrnѕ thе оnеѕ they оffеr for RSS-tо-еmаіl аррlісаtіоnѕ: the range is nоt very еxtеnѕіvе and some оf them рlауеd up a bіt fоr mе when I tеѕtеd thеm іn Outlook (2010).

 

USABILITY

On the whоlе, Getresponse is pretty ѕtrаіghtfоrwаrd to use. It’ѕ сеrtаіnlу еаѕу еnоugh tо dо all thе bаѕісѕ: іmроrt соntасtѕ, сrеаtе campaigns, ѕеt uр аutоrеѕроndеrѕ аnd check ѕtаtіѕtісѕ (which, іnсіdеntаllу, are vеrу соmрrеhеnѕіvе) аnd the іntеrfасе іѕ рrеttу сlеаn and іntuіtіvе (if ѕlіghtlу dated lооkіng). Fоr mе, іt’ѕ nоt ԛuіtе аѕ uѕеr-frіеndlу аѕ use аѕ some оf іtѕ competitors – Campaign Mоnіtоr іn particular trоunсеѕ іt іn in the usability ѕtаkеѕ (fоr mе, Cаmраіgn Mоnіtоr іѕ bу fаr the easiest е-nеwѕlеttеr solution that I’vе trіеd to dаtе – but іt’ѕ also very expensive bу соmраrіѕоn tо іtѕ competitors, and nоt blеѕѕеd wіth as much funсtіоnаlіtу аѕ mоѕt of them).

Onе аrеа I fееl that соuld bе significantly bеttеr frоm a uѕеr-frіеndlіnеѕѕ point оf vіеw іѕ thе e-newsletter еdіtоr. Whіlѕt its drаg-аnd-drор аррrоасh does in thеоrу рrоvіdе a vеrу flexible way tо create blосkѕ оf content and mоvе thеm аrоund аn е-nеwѕlеttеr, іn practice it іѕ ԛuіtе clunky tо uѕе аnd саn lead to accidental deletion оf соntеnt, or placement оf іt in the wrоng part of the е-nеwѕlеttеr. If you саn get your head around it, and practice uѕіng it a bіt, іt does mаkе for a vеrу useful tооl – іt’ѕ juѕt frustrating thаt the іmрlеmеntаtіоn of thіѕ gооd іdеа іѕ rеlаtіvеlу рооr.

Overall thоugh, there аrе nо mаjоr uѕаbіlіtу соmрlаіntѕ – Gеtrеѕроnѕе need tо mаkе ѕоmе minor іmрrоvеmеntѕ, раrtісulаrlу whеrе email еdіtіng is соnсеrnеd, but I haven’t identified аnу problems that wоuld fundamentally рut me оff uѕіng thе tооl for саmраіgnѕ.

ANALYTICS

Getresponse оffеrѕ some vеrу comprehensive аnаlуtісѕ and reporting options. You gеt аll thе basics of соurѕе – ореn rate, сlісk-thrоugh, unsubscribe rаtеѕ аnd ѕо оn – but іn аddіtіоn tо thаt there аrе some vеrу nіftу fеаturеѕ thаt are wоrth a раrtісulаr mention, nаmеlу:

  • ‘оnе-сlісk ѕеgmеntаtіоn’: thе орtіоn to іdеntіfу реорlе who did nоt еngаgе wіth аn e-newsletter уоu ѕеnt аnd рut thеm in a ѕеgmеnt of ѕubѕсrіbеrѕ whісh уоu саn then еmаіl аgаіn with a different vеrѕіоn оf thе е-nеwѕlеttеr
  • ‘mеtrісѕ over time’: уоu саn fіnd out еxасtlу when mоѕt оf уоur ѕubѕсrіbеrѕ take асtіоn оn уоur emails, аnd tіmе уоur futurе mаіlоutѕ bаѕеd on this іnfоrmаtіоn
  • ‘еmаіl ROI’: bу adding ѕоmе trасkіng соdе tо уоur post-sales раgе оn уоur ѕіtе, уоu саn fіnd out hоw еffесtіvеlу (оr nоt!) уоur email саmраіgnѕ are drіvіng ѕаlеѕ, аnd work out уоur return on investment іn email marketing.

Mailchimp and Aweber offer some similar reporting functionality (particularly around sales tracking) but Getresponse’s reporting tool is definitely one of most fully featured out there (it definitely trounces the stats options offered by Mad Mimi and Campaign Monitor).

Gеtrеѕроnѕе ѕuрроrt іѕ pretty comprehensive: they оffеr рhоnе support (9аm-5рm EST, tоll-frее), еmаіl ѕuрроrt аnd lіvе chat support аlоng wіth vаrіоuѕ оnlіnе tutоrіаlѕ / resources. The lіvе chat support is аvаіlаblе 24/7, which іѕ excellent. It’ѕ not сlеаr frоm the Gеtrеѕроnѕе wеbѕіtе whаt hоurѕ email ѕuрроrt іѕ ореrаtеd durіng thоugh – it would bе hеlрful іf thе соmраnу сlаrіfіеd that.

Gеtrеѕроnѕе offers something very uѕеful thаt most оf іtѕ соmреtіtоrѕ dоn’t: a lаndіng раgе сrеаtоr (and оnе thаt’ѕ mоbіlе-frіеndlу tо bооt). Sіmрlу put, оnlіnе advertising campaigns that make uѕе оf lаndіng раgеѕ will usually gеnеrаtе fаr more lеаdѕ іf, rаthеr than ѕіmрlу dіrесtіng people to a (сluttеrеd!) website, they point users tо аttrасtіvе ‘ѕԛuееzе pages’ соntаіnіng сlеаr information аnd a сlеаn, wеll-dеѕіgnеd data сарturе fоrm.

Elite Proxy Machine Review – is this the best (and cheapest) proxies in 2015?

My Honest Review on Elite Proxy Machine

 

I’m a bit late to the game with this review of Only Elite Proxies by Cliff Carrigan and the reason for that is because I hadn’t had a chance to buy it and test it. As with all my reviews, I only review those products I’ve personally bought and tested myself.

There are some fairly big claims going on with this launch, namely that this very low cost product can replace your existing private proxy service. That would mean one small up front cost for the software and then no more monthly recurring fees as you would get with every private proxy company around.

You can check out the sales demo video below before we get into my case study:

 

So why I am interested in Only Elite Proxies?

I’m by no means a power house proxy user however I do spend out monthly on a private proxy plan with Instant Proxies and I’m pretty happy with them to be quite honest. I use them for GSA SER, Social Robot and some other software. However, I’m also open to cutting my monthly out goings so I decided to pick up a 3-PC license copy and put it to the test.

 

16th July 2015 @11:30am – I purchased Only Elite Proxies

16th July 2015 @ 11:35am – trying to test the software but hitting an error when it starts the process of trying to find fresh proxies. Tested on another PC at home and same problem. Tried to install on my Windows Server 2012 VPS and installer won’t run on anything other than XP, 8, 8 and 8.1.

16th July 2015 @ 11:40am – emailed Cliff for a fix and to request support for installing on 2012 server

16th July 2015 @ 4:18pm – email back from Cliff stating this issue is affecting a number of his customers and he is looking at the problem

16th July 2015 @ 8.33pm – Cliff has sent out an email to all customers notifying them of the known problem. He is suggesting there might be a workaround in the works by setting up affected users on a server with VPN access. Will await next update. Not impressed with that concept to be quite honest.

18th July 2015 @ 12.52am – received an email from Cliff stating a big update is ready and there won’t be a need for the VPN workaround now

18th July 2015 @ 12.00pm – I’ve tested software on my two home PC’s and it works now. Also installs on my 2012 server VPS too.

 

Here is a screenshot of it successfully retrieving a proxy list:

Only Elite Proxies Interface

The interface of Only Elite Proxies is pretty simple and to the point. What you see above it the main front end and below is the settings screen:

 

best free proxy server software 2015

 

So really not a great deal of options but why have them if you don’t need them, right. The only thing that this software could (and should) include at some point is a means of scheduling a fresh proxy list which is then exported to a text file. That would make life easier as most software does support pulling in lists of proxies from a text file on a periodic basis.

 

Testing the Proxy List

On this test run of the software, it spat out 328 Elite Proxies and 103 Anonymous Proxies. I then ran the elite proxy list through GSA proxy checker and the results are below:

Elite Proxies
Google Search: 11 / 325 alive [SCREENSHOT] Google PR:  92 / 325 alive [SCREENSHOT]

Anonymous Proxies
Google Search: 4 / 103 alive [SCREENSHOT] Google PR:  26 / 103 alive [SCREENSHOT]

 

Conclusion

The big selling point of Elite Proxy Machine is that it will replace your current private proxy provider. From the results above I disagree.

Yes, I will find use for these proxies where I would prefer not to burn out my private proxies, however, it definitely will not replace my Instant Proxies subscription. It badly needs a scheduling capability with the option to do an alive test against Google search and then export the working proxies to a text file. This would make it vastly more useful.

30 Ways to Make Money with PLR Articles (2015)

You’re going to discover over 30+ ways to use PLR articles and software to make an income online.

Before we jump in, let’s get this out of the way: In most cases it’s a good idea if you
rewrite the PLR so that you are using unique content. That point won’t specifically be
mentioned in most of the strategies listed below. However, you should assume it’s
generally a good idea to modify the PLR at least partially – about 20-30% or so.

 

1. Load articles into an autoresponder

You already know you need to load up an autoresponder series as a way to
automatically build a relationship with your readers. PLR articles make this task easily.

While you should load at least seven to twelve articles into your series, you can also put
your business on autopilot by loading 52 articles into the series – one per week. That’s
a full year’s worth of content that you can use to build a relationship, help you close
sales, and so on.

Do note, however, that you should be using “evergreen” content. In other words, use
content that’s always relevant and timeless.

 

2. Use the content to create regular newsletters

Of course you don’t need to use all your PLR content in your autoresponder. You can
also use PLR articles for real-time broadcasts to your entire list. And since you’re
blasting it out live, you don’t even need to worry about it being “evergreen” content.

For best results, weave affiliate links – or links to your own products and services – into
this content.

 

3. Use the content on your blog

You can get your blog off to a good start by populating it with PLR content. Then you
can keep your blog going by posting PLR articles once or twice a week. In fact, if you’re
using a blog platform that allows you to autopost, then you can load it up any time you
want ….. and the software will post it for you once or twice a week.

Since blog posts can be short – even as small as a couple hundred words – you can
easily take one PLR article, chop it in half, and create two blog posts.

 

4. Create offline newsletters using PLR articles

Many marketers use PLR articles to help create their autoresponder series or their
online newsletter. However, PLR content can also be used to create an offline
newsletter – either free or paid.

 

5. Use PLR articles as the basis for your research

I’m sure you’ve seen it before: PLR articles that are written so horribly that they are
difficult to read. Obviously, they were written by someone whose first language is not
English. While they might pull in search engine traffic, you know that any human who
reads these types of articles will hit the back button ….. fast.

Worse yet, sometimes you run into PLR articles that are beautifully written – but you
can’t use them. The problem is that when you run them through CopyScape.com, you
find out that they’re plagiarized. That opens you up to copyright infringement and
intellectual property lawsuits.

Obviously, you cannot use these articles as-is. But does that mean you wasted your
money buying these PLR articles? Not necessarily. You see, if the articles are well researched
and the content is good, then you can use them as the basis for your own
research to write completely new articles.

Think about it: researching your article usually takes more time than writing it. So if you
have a well-researched article in front of you, all you need to do is rewrite it to create a
completely original (yet factual) article.

In other words, don’t despair the next time you buy dirt-cheap PLR articles only to find
out they’re cheap because they’re poor quality. Just consider the money as well-spent
since it reduces your research time.

 

6. Add affiliate links to articles and submit to article directories

Here’s an easy way to make money from PLR articles. Simply go to Clickbank.com,
Amazon.com, or any other site with an affiliate program. Find a best selling product.
(Clickbank in particular makes this easy to do, since they list their hottest products at
the top of each category.)

Next, find PLR articles closely related to the same topic of the affiliate product. Rewrite
the content, as most article directories won’t accept PLR articles or duplicate content.
As you rewrite, insert your affiliate links into the article.

It’s also a good idea to rewrite it around one or two keywords that your market will use
to find your article. Use WordTracker.com (or your favorite keyword tool) to determine
what longtail keywords get traffic, but also have very little competition in the search
engines.

Finally, submit your rewritten PLR articles to article directories like ezinearticles.com.
You should also include a resource box at the end of the article to point people to your
website, which should encourage people to get on your mailing list.

 

7. Use PLR articles as search engine food

Instead of merely posting PLR content on your blog as mentioned in strategy #3, you
can rewrite it around your niche keywords and then post it. That way these articles will
not only serve as “sticky” content to draw visitors back again and again, you’ll also pull
in new search engine traffic.

 

8. Create a content-rich site /and sell it!

That’s right, you can use your PLR articles to create a content-rich site based around a
particular niche. Then you can monetize the site by adding AdSense to the site or
adding affiliate links to the content (or both).

Usually you might then start working on promoting the site, such as tweaking your
content around longtail keywords to bring in search engine traffic, using article
marketing, using expired domains that are already bringing in traffic, or similar traffic
generation strategies. However, your other option is to simply sell the site outright to
another marketer on eBay, DigitalPoint forums, or a similar marketplace.

You also have two options. You can either create one site – with a domain name and
everything – and sell the site and domain name. Alternatively, you can sell the site
template (design) and all of its content to multiple buyers as an “out of the box” solution.

Note, however, that some PLR licenses may not allow you to resell the content, even if
it’s part of an overall site. This is especially true if you’re selling it to multiple buyers.
You’ll need to look for PLR content that includes transferable rights.

 

9. Create the site – and keep it

Of course you can create a content-rich niche website as described above, except don’t
sell it. Instead, keep adding content to it, keep promoting it, and keep monetizing it
….. and keep all the profits for yourself.

 

10. Create a site using PLR and sell advertising

As described above, one way to monetize a content site is to insert advertising links or
AdSense on the site. Another way to do it is to sell advertising on the site. You may
sell text ads or banner ads. If your site has a high Google page rank, many advertisers
will be content to merely buy a link as a means to get the benefits of your high page
rank.

 

11. Run a membership site

Membership sites are good profit models, because of the residual income. However,
generally membership sites are also tedious to maintain, simply because you need to
constantly be creating and uploading new content.
That’s where PLR articles come in. No more struggling to brainstorm your next topic.

No more spending days creating the content. Just tweak PLR articles and upload it to
your site. Now membership maintenance only takes a couple hours instead of days (or
weeks)!

 

12. Pull in foreign search engine traffic

Are you bilingual? Or do you know a good translator?

If so, you can translate your PLR articles into foreign languages. As usual, pay
particular attention to one or two keywords in each article. Then upload to your site and
watch the traffic start coming in.

(Naturally, of course, it’s best if you have products – your own or affiliate products –
available in this same language.)

 

13. Turn PLR articles into an online course

An alternative to offering a regular ebook is to offer an online course. You can send
each lesson directly via an autoresponder, or you can merely send the link to a
downloadable PDF.

Either way, PLR articles can be used to create the online course. Best of all, you can
either offer a free course as a lead generator, or offer the content as a paid product.

 

14. Use PLR articles as the basis for a teleseminar series

Just because your PLR articles are in text form doesn’t mean the content needs to be
delivered strictly in a text format. (Indeed, you’ll discover other non-text uses for PLR
articles in just a few minutes.)

Here’s an idea: use your PLR articles as the basis for a teleseminar series.

You can give a presentation based on one or more articles, and then open the phone
lines for questions. Or, you can have a friend interview you based on the content ….. and
you can give your answers straight from your articles.

It’s two products (free or paid) in one. First, you can give access to the live
teleseminars. Second, you’ll have the recordings to sell or give away to others.

 

15. Use articles to create content for others

If you have a writing business, you can use PLR articles to create content for others.
Since you need to provide unique content to your clients, partial rewrites won’t do.
However, good PLR can save you a lot of time in the research department.

You may also take on clients who can’t pay as much by offering to use PLR content as
a base for their content. They get something that’s nearly 100% original (yet they don’t
have to pay full fees), and you get paying clients. It’s a win-win situation.

Note: you should only use PLR content as a base with prior approval from your
clients. Otherwise you’re likely to ruin your reputation if they discover that you’re not
giving them unique content.

 

16. Use PLR content to post answers on Yahoo Answers

One way to get valuable backlinks to your site (for search engine optimization purposes)
is to post answers on Yahoo Answers.

Since it can be tedious to create “fresh” answers for every question related to your
niche, you can use PLR articles instead. Ideally the full article should be posted on your
website. That way you can simply post your own site as the source of your information.

 

17. Use PLR articles to post comments on other people’s blogs

Just as you can use PLR articles to post on Yahoo Answers, you can also use it to post
relevant comments on other people’s blogs. Then leave your backlink to get human
traffic and – if the blog allows search engines to follow links – the benefit of a one-way
link for search engine optimization purposes.

Be sure the content you use is relevant, however. And in general, you don’t want to
post entire articles. Instead, post a portion of the article that’s relevant to what’s being
discussed. You can then link to the entire article that’s posted on your own blog.

 

18. Use as content to post answers on forums

Here’s another way articles can be used to get links: post the content on other people’s
forums.

Now you can do this one of two ways. On forums that encourage people to post
articles, you can post all or part of an article – particularly if you add your own
comments about the article. If you add something controversial, you’re likely to spark a
debate (and that’s good thing).

Some forum owners frown on this, however. They’d rather people have natural
conversations rather than post articles. In particular, new members of a forum are likely
to get their hands slapped for posting “drive by” articles. If you run into a forum that
discourages posting articles, then use your PLR to help you brainstorm topics to post
about on forums – but don’t necessarily post the articles themselves (at least not in a
transparent way).

Note: On the other hand, some forums have specific sections where you’re
allowed to post full articles. In those cases, consider posting a few along with a
byline.

Another way to use PLR content on forums is to use it to answer other people’s posts.
Here you may post part of an article, along with a link to the full article that’s posted on
your blog.

Note, however, that most forum owners prefer if you answer the question in its entirety
on the forum – so you don’t want to just post a line or two with a link. Instead, post a
complete answer ….. with a link for those seeking additional information.

Tip: you can pay other people to post these articles or article snippets. Post a
project on elance.com to find freelancers willing to do this work for you.

 

19. Use PLR articles to create Squidoo pages

Plenty of savvy marketers set up Squidoo pages (AKA lenses) around specific niche
topics. You can do the same using PLR articles to create the lens. You may want to
rewrite some of the content around specific keywords. Then add interactive features,
affiliate links, and links to drive traffic back to your own site.

 

20. Use PLR content to create Squidoo lenses – then SELL the lenses

Here you set up a lens as described in strategy #19 above. However, instead of
keeping it yourself, you sell it immediately to someone else. It’s a quick and easy way
to make a nice chunk of change.

Note: check your PLR license to be sure this is allowable. To be safe, find content
that comes with transferable rights.

 

21. Use PLR articles as content on social networking sites

Social networking sites like MySpace are great places to network with like-minded
people, build a list of “friends” in your niche, and more. However, in order for your
social networking page to be truly effective, you should regularly update it. Usually this
means posting frequently to your site-sponsored blog.

Now if you’re maintaining your own site and other blogs, the thought of maintaining yet
another blog might sound like a lot of work. It’s not – especially if you use PLR articles
to create your blog.

 

22. Use PLR articles to populate your own forum

If you’re just starting a forum in your niche, you already know the “chicken and the egg”
problem. Specifically, you need people to start posting in the forum to get it going with
some good content. And yet most people don’t want to post in a forum that doesn’t
already have lots of posts and content.

The solution? You need to populate the forum with good content to encourage others to
start posting. And to do that, you can use PLR articles to spark discussion. Either get
your friends to post these articles for you, or ask them to join the discussion on the
threads where you’ve posted the articles.

Either way, in no time at all you’ll have a thriving forum full of good content!

 

23. Offer your affiliates PLR articles to help promote your products and services

If you want to encourage your affiliates to promote your wares, it’s a good idea to have
a full suite of content to help them do so, including banner ads, text ads, newsletter ads,
solo ads, PPC ads, and so on.

However, you should also give them relevant articles they can rebrand with their affiliate
links and load into their autoresponders and on their blogs. To make it easy on
yourself, you can offer them PLR articles to do just that.

 

24. Tweak PLR articles and sell them

You already know that you can sell PLR articles users to niche members who are
desperately seeking solutions. However, here’s another idea: rewrite the articles and
sell them to newspapers, magazines, and other paying markets. You can find these
markets by getting a copy of the yearly “Writer’s Markets” publications.

 

25. Use PLR articles as a basis to create an “advertorial”

An advertorial is an advertisement that’s made to look like an article. Because it looks
like a newspaper or magazine article, it tends to get read more often than a regular ad.
After all, most of us have trained ourselves to ignore advertisements. So the less your
ad looks like an ad, the better response you get.

Flip through any magazine or newspaper, and you’ll see plenty examples of
advertorials. Study how a sales pitch is woven into solid content, and you’ll get a pretty
good idea of how you can use your PLR articles to create advertorials.

 

26. Use PLR articles as a basis to create a press release

Just as you can use PLR articles to create advertorials, you can also use them to create
press releases. The difference, however, is that the “advertising” component of a press
release is even more subtle. Typically press releases point readers to your site for
more information. If you pitch anything in your press release, the newspaper editor will
probably pitch your release straight into the garbage.

 

27. Use PLR articles as the basis to create offline flyers

One way to advertise your business offline is to create advertising flyers that you hang
on bulletin boards at related businesses or elsewhere around your city. You may also
do a joint venture with business owners to insert your flyers into customer shopping
bags. Or, where allowed, you can hand flyers out on the street.

Most people create their flyer by creating a regular ad. You know what happens with
these sorts of flyers: the majority get thrown into the trash and promptly forgotten.

However, you can make your flyer more valuable to prospects simply by turning it into
an advertorial that includes solid information to help them solve their problems. And of
course you can use your PLR articles to create these advertorials.

The end result? Your prospects will take your flyer with them and act on it.

 

28. Use articles as the basis to create an interactive survey, quiz, petition or
similar

One way to engage prospects online is to get them interactive. And a good way to get
them interactive is to have them take a quiz, fill out a survey, or sign a petition.
Naturally, you can get the content to create these interactive features by turning to your
PLR articles.

These sorts of interactive features work particularly well on sites where commercial
activity isn’t allowed ….. or at least not encouraged. For example, you can ask your
MySpace friends or your friends on a niche forum to take a quiz.

So how do you monetize these interactive features?

One way is to ask people to submit their name and email address in order to participate.
However, you’ll need to offer them something else (a bribe, if you will) to encourage
them to do that.

An alternative isn’t to force them to sign up for your newsletter, but rather ask them to.
Again, offer them a compelling reason to do so, such as a free report (which can also be
derived from PLR content).

Finally, you may place AdSense ads, text links, or banner ads around your interactive
features to help monetize that page.

 

29. Create your own niche article directory

Here’s an idea: instead of submitting your modified PLR articles to article directories,
you can create your own niche-specific article directory. You can populate the directory
by submitting dozens of your own articles. Then you can ask other webmasters to
submit their articles, too.

What you do after that point is your decision. You can keep running the article directory
and keep all the profit, or you can sell this established, content-rich site on eBay, the
