PostHeaderIcon Unclean Water: A Menace In Our Society

Water should be an element of life just like air. Without water, man will not survive. We use water for our daily activities. Water is not only useful for us, it's also effective for other things. Your car uses water to cool its engine. Water is a blessing to mankind.

What about unclean water?
An unclean water is a water that has been contaminated by any foreign harmful substance. And this unclean water has been a menace in our society. Recently in my country Nigeria, an epidemic of cholera is affecting lives in the south-eastern side.

Well, they say prevention is better than cure. While there is a cure for cholera and some other water-borne infection, we ought to make sure that we avoid contaminating the water so as to prevent any epidemic like this.

I am not an expert in water cleansing or treatment but there are some common sense tips we can use to prevent water-borne infection. Because we know that our water can be contaminated in so many ways like toxic waste from big industries. So we should be ready to treat our water before consumption.

Boil Before Drinking
If you happen come from the region that does not have access to government supplied water and you can't dig your own bore-hole to get water yourself, then any other water you want to consume MUST be boiled. Boiling to the highest degree celcius will kill any germs in the water.

When it comes to toxic waste or acidic water, I must be sincere, I do not know the chemical process of purifying or treating them to be safe for consumption but I do know that water supplied from the government are safe for drinking.

Unclean water is very very dangerous to our society, let's join hands to support cause to better water for the community. Bloggersunite, WaterAid America & are working together to bring clean and safe water to people who are dying because of an unclean water.

Bloggers are uniting to support this initiative don't be left out.

Clean Water, Safer Life!

PostHeaderIcon To Delete or Not To Delete "Here You Have" Email Virus

Recently, a new virus (Malware) is making the buzz around the internet and has been confirmed to have hit big companies that was suppose to be extra careful about security.

Coca-Cola, Disney, NASA, Comcast and the almighty Google were all hit by this new virus. The virus is an email-borne virus and it had Comcast shut down their email servers completely to prevent further attack.

The 'Here you have' virus appears in your email box as a new message from someone who has your email in their email address book. In the mail is a link disguised to be a .pdf file that compels victims to click. Once clicked, it does nothing visibly but behind, it automatically attacks the address book and sends out the same email to the contacts in the address book.

Presently nothing has been said about the damage caused by this virus (atleast not at the time of putting up this post). But it was stated that if you have any new mail with the title 'Here You have', you should delete it immediately and not open it even though the virus cannot operates on its own if the mail is opened unless you click the .pdf link.

My oquestion now is that, what if the sender of the virus change the title of the email message to something new, how do we now secure ourselves? Left to me, though it was advised not to open any email with the 'Here you have' title, I would recommend that you should avoid clicking any link in your emails for the moment till enough information about this virus and how it operates is available.

Do not think that this virus only affect your email address book, it also affects computers that are connected through the network. So you need to be at alert for any suspicious email whether it has the same title with the virus or not.

Secure your PC with an up-to-date antivirus programs. Antivirus programs with firewall and anti-spyware services are the best bet to keep yourself secure online from virus and spyware attacks. Norton Internet Security, Kaspersky Internet Security, McAfee, are the ones I can recommend but do check their features to see if it suits what you want before you get them.

To delete 'Here you have' emails or not to delete? Just be leery of any links in your e-mail as you might not know which one carries that malware. What's your opinion?

Promoting your CPA offers in forums could be rewarding. Forums have the largest number of users after search engine and social networks. Hence, it’s a very good place to promote offers. You can do that by putting the link to the CPA offer in your signature or even you can start a new thread on the CPA offer you want to promote.

PostHeaderIcon Make Money With CPA (Cost Per Action) Offers

CPA stands for “Cost Per Action”. It means an action must take place before a price or fee is paid. CPA marketing is another lucrative way of making money online. It involves an affiliate to refer an active customer to a merchant. This is another form of affiliate marketing. But here, you are not being paid for any sale referral, you will be paid for referring a customer who either submit just their emails for an offer, fill out a form to subcribe for offers or do any other thing apart from buying.

CPA networks are similar to Affiliate networks, nothing is different. They offer you with CPA offers from merchants and make sure that you are paid your commission. Joining a CPA network is free but can be difficult because they are always very selective about the kind of affiliates they accept. The sign up process is not long but they will manually go through your registration to make sure that you will be productive for their advertisers (merchants).

Some CPA networks allow you to re-apply if your application is rejected. To avoid rejection of your application try to meet their demand. Once your account has been approved, they will assign you an affiliate manager to monitor your progress with their network because your progress is their progress. Most of them will call your specified phone number to communicate with you.

In my own case, I registered with NeverBlueAds and I was assigned my own affiliate manager. My application was declined in the first attempt I made because the mobile number I specified can not be reached each time they tried to call me. So you must give them accurate and up-to-date information about yourself.

Owning a website or blog is not compulsory but it is an added advantage to get your application registered very fast. They will want to know how much traffic you can get to your link, so telling them you have a blog is an advantage.

Examples of CPA Networks
I won’t go with a long list here, I’ll just give a short list of the ones that are good to go with for now and say one or two thing about them.

Azoogle is a very large CPA network, they offer a quite large number and variety of CPA offers that range from ringtones to freebies for a form submittal. Their network seems very stable and highly credible as they make sure publishers (affiliates) get paid for their effort.

This I have signed up with and I can say they have excellent customer service. Good news to Nigerians here; their network is open to all nationalities. They are so kind and lenient with affiliates who don’t own a website. Their network has a friendly user-interface which is good for newbies. A highly recommended CPA network is NeverBllueAds.

They offer exclusive and unique campaigns that they say will translate to higher conversions for affiliates and advertisers. They claim to have the best payout on any campaign. They also encourage people to be top money-makers.

This is a CPA network with a multi-tier referral program for affiliates. You get an instant $10 signup bonus for every person you refer to their network. You also get 2% gross credit for life for signup bonus under your affiliate referral id. What this mean is that, they offer you 2% credit and not cash for all signups generated by your down-lines. This credit can be used to fund you own advertising campaign if you wan to. Their minimum payout is $50 and they pay 15 days after the end of the month in which you made money usually called Net15 schedule.

Others on the list are:






And the list goes on and on like that. For a full list of CPA networks, check them on warriorforum.

Recently, I signed up with Peerfly; a CPA network and I love the offers they have and I have been successful personally with them and I will recommend them for any new or professional CPA marketer because they are not that strict about choosing affiliate and they offer same day payout. Sign up with Peerfly today.

Choosing an appropriate offer
What niche are you focussed on? Who are your target audience? These are the questions you ought to ask yourself before you select any offer you think is appropriate. You might be tempted to follow others in promoting some offers that are right for them, but think of the fact that your audience might be different.

The perfect offer you can promote is the one related to your blog or niche. And if you don’t have one already, focusing on hot niches could help you out. Use Google Trends to determine what hot niches do a particular region has. Use keyword tools also to determine recent top searches. This will help you know which product offer you are to promote.
