What Happens to Your Mobile Phone after You Sell It

img1In this day and age there comes a time in almost everyone’s life where they need to trade in their own mobile phone. Mobile phones are literally everywhere, and it seems like everyone from 9 to 90 has one. Selling your unwanted mobile phone is important because mobile phones have inner materials that can be harmful to people and to the environment.

This is why it is highly advisable that you refrain from simply throwing your phone away. With that being said, have you ever wondered what happens to your phone when you sell it? When you go to one of those “sell my phone” websites either put on through your provider or somewhere else, have you ever wondered what the process is like? This piece will seek to answer those questions for you.

1. The first step depends on the condition of your phone

If your phone is still workable there are several possibilities for your phone. It may end up getting refurbished and resold. After that it will usually go back into the consumer market or it may get donated to a charity. There is a program put on by Verizon where victims of domestic violence are able to get a free phone loaded with 3000 minutes. If it does not go to one of these two places sometimes the phone is sold to a market in Africa or Latin America for a cash-strapped individual to use.
If the phone does not work at all it may end up going to a smelter where it will be melted down and reconstituted. It may also possibly be mined for the various that are found in the phone. Other than that the phone may be broken up and sold for its parts.

2. Sometimes the phone ends up abroad.

If you donate to one of these recycling programs then you need to realize that yes, your old phone may very well end up going abroad. Sometimes this happens when they break it up and sell it for parts. When they do this in a foreign country, they often dangerously dispose of the phone in an open fire. Thus, if you care about the environment, it might behove you to call your carrier and see if they can indicate to you just what would happen to your phone if you donated it.

3. Be careful where you donate the phone.

If you are concerned about what will happen to your used phone should you decide to donate it, then be careful where you donate it. Best Buy is a good location to donate your old phone because they refrain from shipping them to foreign countries. You can also read up on other online phone buyers programs to see what they do with the donated phones.

I Upgraded to the MacBook Pro!

Today, I feel because my dream finally come true! Not wanting to spend too much money to upgrade the tools I need for blogging, I finally upgraded to the new mid-2012 model 13-inch MacBook Pro using the revenue generated from MoneyMakingModes and from the contribution from my dad.

MacBook Pro 13-Inch

Why MacBook Pro?

I was a PC user before, since I was a kid, actually. Now after 6 years, I’m on a different platform. I found it easier to use Mac OS than Windows. I was little bit frustrated when the viruses crashed my PC and lost all of my data. Most of the anti-virus software didn’t work so I had to re-install the Windows, which is actually another boring task. While using a PC, I spend 20% of my time searching for how to fix this part of Windows and how to solve that, and bla, bla bla.

In the other hand, MacBook Pro’s 13-inch model specification totally allow me to do my work like video editing, using Photoshop, Web designing more conveniently without any problem.

In a nutshell, I’m currently happy using the Mac.

What’s Next?

I’ve choosen MacBook for a reason — to be more productive.

“Writing posts on blogs, that’s productive?”

Yes, and no.

Yes — because it’s how I make money, and no because I’ve a plan start a new project which will be ‘more productive’ than this one.

Wait a second, what do you mean ‘more productive’?

You’ll get answer for this question in my upcoming post. For now, just let me know your opinion in the comments below.

7 Bad Signs That Predicts You Will Not Make Money Blogging

Make Money Blogging TacticsDid you know you have to work consistently to make some serious cash before you created a blog?

There are few signs that most of the bloggers shows after creating a new blog — and these signs literally determines how much potential you have in order to make money blogging. Probably not — but certainly yes because there are lots of resources out there that help you get started.

You should be regularly doing the basis things to up your blog level by level.

Here are the 7 signs that literally tells how much potential you have to make money with your blog.

1. Not writing regularly

Why regularly?

Because no one reads a dead blog.

If you don’t care about writing up in regular basis then people wouldn’t care about your blog either because they’re not getting what they expected they would get by visiting your blog.

When you have started with a blog you are supposed to write regularly. The frequency of posting depends on you but you should write at least one post per month. Not writing regularly will make your blog lose out in competition. People will lose interest which will result in low traffic.

People want up to date information. So us feed them what they want in a regular basis.

Don’t have a time to write regularly because of busy schedule? Don’t worry, you can alway hire a write who has a good expertise about the topic of your blog.

Where to hire quality writers?

There are some good place where you can hire a write who can write regularly for your blog.

Basically, I prefer the following two places:

  • Elance – you’ll get many job proposals here, but you’ve to choose just one that has good working experience.
  • Warrior Forum – as far as I remember, I’ve seen couple of threads with some really awesome deal packages. You’ll see some people, that has got all positive feedbacks in the thread, offering damn cheap article writing service.

2. Not linking with other blogs

If you don’t link then you’ll not get better promotion.

If you’re aware about how linking to other bloggers can determine your earning potential then here simple step points:

  1. You link to other bloggers
  2. they’ll notice it
  3. they share your article which you linked back to them
  4. their followers gets into your blog and they untimely change in the daily readers and finally buyers when you recommend any promising product to them!

More you link back to people, more you’ll get the popularity. Just make sure to buzz them back that you’ve mentioned them in your post. They’ll be happy, and they’ll certainly share you post to everyone they one.

The links make your blog resourceful and interesting as well. Yes, everyone loves to read ‘interesting’ articles.

3. Not creating social networks

Social network is the place where you can reach your blog to many people. It’s place to promote and advertise, for free!

And more importantly, social media sites can untimely improve search engine rankings.

So, why not create and engage in social networks?

You need to make people know about your blog. If you do not tap these resources your blog will remain unread.

Here are some top social networking sites where you can start promoting your blog immediately after reading this post:

  • Facebook – create Facebook page, get more fans and keep the page updated by regularly sharing your blog post, or ask random questions.
  • Twitter – follow people in your niche, mention some people in your tweets, retweet other tweet and tweet with your blog post link frequently. This way you can drive more traffic to your blog using Twitter. Always remember, more traffic = more money!
  • Stumbleupon – it’s my #2 main traffic source for my blog. It’s actually easy to get targeted traffic through Stumbleupon. Just follow people and be an active stumbler.

The other social media site I’d recommend is LinkedIn, Google+, Reddit and Digg.

4. Not getting attached to any blog community

Online communities make your blog get more and more traffic. If you do not register yourself in any one of these communities, your blog will be unnoticed.

You need to popularise your blog in order to make money.

What’s a community. It’s the place where you can share and gain knowledge, get traffic and more leads and sales.

Here’s some best blog community sites:

  • Blog Engage – Awesome place to get audience for your blog.
  • MMSocialNetwork – A good place to get traffic.
  • Biz Sugar – Ti, my just met blogging friend, is getting pretty much decent traffic from this community, and it has become part of her blog’s traffic source. She has shared some interesting traffic case study in her blog – that’s worth reading.

If you’re not a member in any of those community then you have to from now! In return, your hard work will pay off, believe me.

5. Avoid plagiarism

Do not ever copy content from other blogs.

You’ll be penalised for doing so, and non of the search engine would respect your blog.

This isn’t a shortcut if you’re expecting to earn some money with your blog.

Look for the originality.

Share what you know. Your readers will appreciate your effort. Trust me.

6. Not writing quality content

People don’t like reading articles that gives them back nothing.

So how do you make them read your articles?

It’s simple.

Deliver them what they want. Quality.

Give them information that they might end up with a big regret if they don’t take an action and follow tips you share d through the post.

This is the most important point that should kept in mind. Quality of the content is the only factor that draws attention. Carol from CopyBlogger has shared some good tactics to write high quality content – fast and easy.

Write less but make your each post stand out. It is the quality that will help you make money blogging.

7. Not including keyword

Good keyword optimization leads you to better search engine ranking and it ultimately increase your blog traffic.

Keywords help you get the attention of the search engines that ultimately would enable you get money with your blog.

Find some long tail keywords using Google Keyword Tool. Look for the keywords that has minimum of 1000 global monthly searches with low competition. Lower the competition, the higher the chance for your blog to get top position in search engines. Target a single keyword to each blog post. You could easily get good ranking by guest posting, social bookmarking and getting links from few other reliable sources.

This way you’ll get hot targeted traffic.

Can you imagine hundreds and thousands of people searching for one single information, and where’s that information? In your blog!

Offer something valuable in your blog that’s worth buying. If people find it appealing, then certainly buy it. I know it sounds easy, however, it may be quite difficult to do, but that’s how you make money blogging.

Do you have these signs?

Nobody’s perfect. We make mistakes, but we can solve it — together.

Tell us in the comment if you have any of these sign that may keep you apart from making money with your blog.
