My Eyes are Telling Me Lies

Two points that stand out in the golden rules of investing with me are; when I get involved I accept the risk knowing full well my principal could go poof at any time. Therefore, I only use cash that I don’t need to keep the wolves from the door.

So … with every venture I write about in my Blog, I apply that and I know there are no guarantees.

Seeing is believing they say but not in the world of finance. My eyes could be telling me lies about what I’m reading and watching while my noggin’ is working overtime thinking  … is it all smoke and mirrors or will it be profitable?

Folks should take heed of red flags and issues that just don’t look kosher. Certainly one of Canada’s ‘Big 5’ Banks should of put on the brakes and ceased dealings until investigated when they felt there was something just not right. But… that Bank did not, although it’s ‘alleged’ the warning signs were there and here’s the story behind that…

Fraud lands billionaire in jail and the corrupt money trail.

I have no doubt Banks try and avoid this type of situation in that article but I’m sure it’s a constant thing with persuasive rich crooks, drug/war lords and terrorist groups under an alias attempting get their foot in the door. Then move their money in small amounts first, eventually ramping up to the millions, while large transfer fees are taken in by the Banks.

Ramping that down to the online world I’m invested in … where funding a few thousand in a program is looked on as a high end spend, I remain conservative as always. But first … some navy humour

Although ‘revenue share’ ad packs won’t be for sale until February 28th. KooAds has enabled funding to purchase some advertising with the program. I’m sure there will be more launches in February I’ll be getting into but for now, there is plenty of time to watch KooAds and review the ‘on site’ AdPlan and FAQ’s.

If all is well, I’ll be there for the official Launch day.

 

 

Prelaunching into February

With the subject of compounding … there are some Admins running ventures that think ‘long term’ and understand the effects. There is a trend of new launches now that force compounding onto members in the form of a high percentage ‘repurchase rule’… 30 to 50% split from earnings.

In most cases, it just encourages a ‘one time’ spend and folks rely on the repurchase account for further compounding. Sites normally don’t survive very long with that plan.

I prefer to make that decision on my own and I’m ok with 20%  of my earnings going into a repurchase account buying additional spots depending on the Skipper(s) running the site. Anymore than that, I normally move on.

However, straight 100% earnings going into my cashout account is my thing.

The German run,  EdenTraffic has no repurchase account and no membership requirement. The advertising site is the latest venture I’m in profit with. To date, membership continues to grow.

Eden is similar to AdsPayPro, which also has no forced repurchase account currently. Paying out between 1.5% to 2% daily on my end, depending on membership level. Steady has she goes, beats out the majority of fast earners that crash and burn within a couple weeks or a month.

Today, there is a new advertising program in prelaunch called Kooad. Accepting STP and Payza, there is no repurchase rule and Adpacks start from $2 each up to $12. The Admin has a decent history and the launch is scheduled to start on the 28th of February. I’ll add more news about this latest venture I joined in my next article.

More encouraging news from MoBrabus. After taking on a new crew of programmers; the revenue share, advertising rotator and payment processors are tentatively scheduled to be in place before Monday.

 

 

Fund a Tangerine

I watched the NFL conference finals last Sunday and now it’s the Denver Broncos facing the Carolina Panthers in Superbowl 50 on Sunday, February 7th. Denver was involved in a close game with New England while Carolina easily won their match.

The Montreal Canadiens in the NHL continue to struggle and lost again last night currently out of a playoff spot. I don’t think any Hab fan expected that after a great last season and being at the top of the league during the first few weeks of this season.

Hopefully, My Boys can turn it around soon and get out of that mental funk they are in causing elementary mistakes, which costs them dearly when opposing teams even the score and win.

I’m not a fan of early compounding with the online programs in the Biz, simply because there are too many variables that can throw a wrench into a person’s long rang plans.

However, folks do have success with their ‘systems’ and prosper depending on the program and Skipper(s) at the helm.

AdsPayPro, an advertising venture I recently got into profit with … starting with a compounding approach, can be more of an advantage contrary to my opening paragraph. There’s always that question pops up where membership continues to grow when my term expires and I got paid.

Do I go with additional funding or walk away? On my end, I repurchased and bought more Units from STP. So, it’s onward with AdsPayPro.

Things were slowly coming together with MoBrabus but their programmer was missing deadlines set by the Admin and it came down to… your fired. Currently MB is working with new programmers moving ahead with developing and finishing MB 2.0

 

The Fixed Rate

In the world of investing, outside of the online programs I fund, there are ‘fixed rate’ choices out there with GIC’s … Guaranteed Investment Certificates and Bonds but depending on what’s going in the ‘Markets’, they mature at low rate rarely keeping up with the yearly cost of inflation.

But there is no risk with an investor’s principal and there is growth over time. Mutual Funds, stocks and commodities however, fluctuate every business day. Compared to the Biz with the online programs and the Markets, that’s where it becomes comparable with risk. Some people hit the bonanza in their choices and others lose… the money game.

Everyday folks can make a fortune or go broke to a point of bankrupsy where they over extend and gamble away their household and/or business income as well.

Always … only use cash you can afford to lose if you invest and play it safe. Listen to the man …

Online, I favour the ‘fixed rate’ programs and on the average, I have better success with them during their ‘shelf’ life. Different from GIC’s and Bonds however, my principal spends are also at risk until I gain them back and then I enjoy earning the profit.

Three programs I’m currently in that offer fixed rate plans continue to perform at this time.

Amazing5 and I got paid quickly today to my STP account and that wraps up this business week on my end; (Payments to accounts; Monday to Friday) looking forward to Monday,

I’m in profit from my original Payza invest with Fenix-Group and I will withdraw again today. That site also pays to member accounts Monday to Friday.

Depending when I make a withdraw request, AdClickXpress is paying me within a 12 hour time frame currently at their 6% per day rate (3% on the weekends). Like stocks and Mutual Funds, investing with ACX can be a roller coaster ride over the years and patience is needed.

For example … last summer and into the fall, I was steady building on my profit and putting back around 50% of my withdrawals…. my usual thing.

Late into 2015 and starting 2016… there were a few back to back restarts and resets (membership commissions not affected) that whittled me down pretty good. Since then, ACX has been steady once again and it’s the only program online that I know of that continually rebounds from starving for cash to paying out at a steady rate.

Normally when an online site slows down and the attraction isn’t there anymore … it’s like a stock that’s falling … never to recover.

 

 

Pro Gearing

The gears are slowly beginning to mesh with MoBrabus 2.0 and the first ‘first revenue’ share payment to member’s account starts today as more options get added.

The Pro Membership, which offers more perks and additional income when downline members also go Pro, will be available for funding on Wednesday … the 20th of January. That’s all laid out in the powerpoint slides about the compensation plan and features.

I’m in profit with AdsPayPro and the Admin added a cool ‘Your real time accumulated units projection’ box to member’s backoffice. I get an idea how the ‘shares’ distrubution for members is looking for the day … how much I’ll earn today, as well as, time and earnings left to reach my current expiry target.

Probably one of the more ‘user friendly’ scripts in use today, with auto redirect back to my dashboard after surfing the required number of sites per day.

Uptown Funk break ….

With the finances, my Biz is the bright spot this mid January, while my ‘units’ in the Canadian markets are dropping some lately after a lousy start to the year. The TSX, Toronto Stock Exchange … keeps loosing ground and is now at it’s lowest since… July, 2013 and I expect it drop lower yet. Oil, certainly a contributing factor is nearing $29 US per barrel as companies involved pay out more and more to keep up with expenses and that has consequences.

That in turn … means more layoffs and downsizing for some outfits or even closure for now.

When will it ‘bottom out’ and a recovery begin … not even the top speculators in the markets can figure that one out yet.
