Take your time and go through each point and choose that fits your interest and skill.

Job Loss and Unemployment Stress: How to Cope

These lessons are an amalgamation of all lessons that I learned after resigning from my last job and also some interesting comments shared by readers. This may help if you are going to resign a job or unemployed for quite sometime.

Job Loss and Unemployment Stress: How to Cope

When I quit my job, I had a job offer in my pocket. Though I did not take it. I went to home, took days to see what exactly I wanted to do and started blogging. Let me tell you, it is hard path. The more hours i put, the less money I was getting. My family started pointing out that I am unemployed and should start looking for a job. I was now unemployed and depressed.

I could not convince them about my path nor I could not show them any result. I was devastated. I did not know what to do. I stopped blogging and send resume to many employers. If I clearly remember I send resume to at least 22 employers. 2 rejected it and I did not any communication from others. Now I am depressed and unemployed.

Finally some friend of mine called about a job in an NGO far away from my place. I had to take it up due to strong family pressure and shift to a place that I have no idea about. Place was bad, job was bad, salary was ok. I continued there for 6 months and then I again decided to quit my job. In these months I worked hard in my blog and I was getting enough money from it.

Lessons from being unemployed and depressed without job

1. Create a source of income when you are unemployed: I am not saying that you may find success in blogging or any other stuff. But do try to create a source of income that you can depend on when you leave job. That way you do not need worry about anything.

2. Never need to convince anyone including your family: Your family or friends or relatives do not know why you quit the job or you are not getting job. It does not matter whether you convince them or not. They are mostly not going understand. For them a steady independent earner is the best choice.

3. Read about Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Kiyosaki: There are many wonderful personalities who struggled all their life and then with passion and hardwork, raised millions of dollars. Do think optimistically and dont follow the crowd.

4. 9-5 Job kills: Yes, you heard it right. You are working 8-9 hours a day for fulfilling the dream of someone just because you will get some money. You are working for money. If you keep for working for money, then it will only end in your death. Money should work for you. Do read Rich Dad Poor Dad on how you can make money work for you.

5. List of stuff that you want to do alone: Do not put all your eggs in one basket. Do list out many stuff that you are passionate or have an idea. Try the best one and learn from the mistakes. Do not put all your money in that idea.

6. Do Lean Start up: A start up can be a small shop, a blog or website, an information center for your local community. This will generate income while you are a searching for a job. I have shared a few start up ideas in case you are interested. You may have an idea to build a super market. Do start a small grocery shop first and learn the business well. Then add vegetable to it, and expand slowly over 2-3 years of time.

Practical Lessons for people who are unemployed and depressed but no idea

There are some who do not have any idea on doing and they just keep doing job search. For them these lessons will be very useful.

1. Never Leave A Job Without A Job In Your Hand.

Always try to find another job before resigning from the current one. This will give you a piece of mind even if you are not planning to take it. If you do not have any alternate job, you may end up having no job offer and high stress, or may have to take up other jobs that are uninteresting, unfamiliar or less paid.

2. Get great reference to back you up.

Build connections in the departments and in the organisations. This way there will be always good reference to back you up while you search for jobs because there are thousands of qualified people searching for jobs.

3. Use the time to learn a skill or do a certificate course while Being Unemployed

If you decided to resign without any job in hand, use the time wisely. Prepare for Government exams, higher education, join a new course related to your job, write IELTS exam, get passport, join an online certificate course from an international university, learn a new computer software, train in social, writing, communication skills and learn a new language like French or German. These will back you up while attending interviews unless you will marked as Professionals with a Gap.

4. Hold on to your reasons of quitting the job.

No need to get stressed and feeling worthless. You had your reasons for quitting the job. Your reasons may not be understood by others. So there is no point in clarifying your intention or reasons to others instead convince yourself. Build confidence. You can do SWOT analysis to find out your strengths and weaknesses.

Hold on to your reasons of quitting the job

5. Get family involved

Family can help and support you in financial trouble. It is solely your call on whether you want to involve family. Staying with family will reduce your expenses thereby reducing financial stress.

Life Lessons for People unemployed and depressed and Never had a job

Here are some things or pointers that will help you restart your search for jobs or help you to figure out solutions.

1. Sell Your CV / Resume

Find good model of portfolio, CVs and Resume and start adding your information. Chance of getting a job is high with an excellent resume and good academic record. Prospective employers look at the CV before they look at you. It is your CV that makes the difference in the group of other potential applicants. You also need to start improving cover letter, statement of purpose and ask your friends to rate them at a scale of 1-10.

2 Being Selective is Tricky | Use Filters

I know many unemployed people who are looking for the right job or a job that match the skills or interest. If you are really want a job urgently, do not be selective much but use filters.
Filters can be;
a. low/ medium / high pay
b. small / medium / large company
c. regional / national / international company
d. permanent / temporary positition
e. matches your skills / does not match skills
f. matches your interests / does not match
g. higher positions or roles / lower positions

Being Unemployed

3. Get Unemployment Benefits for Being Unemployed

Apply for unemployment benefits from Government even if it is really less.

4. Step into a different field

Sometimes you need to get out of your degree cocoon and look for other jobs in different field. I know of a friend who have done Engineering Degree and have worked for a Space Research Organisations as an Intern and as a teacher for some years. So be open to all jobs in the market. Taking different jobs will help you to meet new people from different background eventually helping you to find the one you are looking for.

The job market is diluted with degrees. Mostly everyone is running behind general degrees like MBAs. Only a person with specific skill set have a chance to aim for a higher position. Many degrees pay very less such as Social work with a BA, or B.Ed

5. Look for Local Opportunities

Use google maps and search for all the companies nearby your area.
Check the website > career section, Visit their office, check with HR managers, contact them via email to know about existing vacancies.

6. Do Freelancing / Part Time Jobs and Earn Passive Income

While you are searching for jobs, sign with Elancer, Freelancers, upwork and other major freelancer sites and sell your skills. You can start applying on creating a resume for another person thereby earning income as well as learning the skill.

6. Post Resume in Job Boards and Websites

You can post your resume in Monster, Glassdoor, Careerbuilder, Dice Indeed and SimplyHired for identifying potential opportunities. You can also post resume to regional recruitment websites to get exposure.

7. Meet Other Job Seekers who also Being Unemployed currently

Go to coffee shops, clubs, online forums and talk to other fellow job seekers. They will say their story which will make you feel that your life is way better. This will also help you to generate leads and tips to other job opportunities.

This section of what does a restaurant website need is going to be little long. I am going to add some headings/ titles that you can use when you are going to build your great website.

An awesome Template does half of the cooking

You can hire a website designer to create a website template for your restaurant. This will be costlier as they may charge you per hour. Other cheaper way is to surf Internet on topics like "templates for restaurant", "template theme for a restaurant website", "free template for restaurant website" etc.

Why You Should Not Use provides an amazing and free way to make website design and launch them in minutes. Why I suggested not to use is that it will provide you a sub domain for your restaurant website. The website will be like www.your It won't look good when you print in a card or say to someone. In case of SEO, sub domains cannot rank that much. Always buy a domain and launch your website.

YouTube Partner Program New Rules | 4000 hours views, 1000 subs, 30 days

Are you searching for youtube partnership requirements, youtube partnership new changes, youtube partner program terms, monetize youtube and youtube monetization rules. Then you must know YouTube proposed new YouTube Partner Program New Rules and requirements on creator monetization. That is 4000 hours views in one year, 1000 subscribers and 30 days grace period.

I woke up today and checked my email on 17 January 2018. There was this very shocking mail from YouTube Team on titled Important updates to the YouTube Partner Program. The email content is added below and I know all of you got the same emails. Now what are they thinking?

Comment of a small YouTuber: "I got the email from youtube which said i need 4000 hours. I had 4,440 and i literally jumped out of joy it was only later that i realized i had 4,440 minutes, which is just 74 hours. Now, i feel like i have to climb mount Everest"

Mail from YouTube on YouTube Partner Program

YouTube Partner Program New Rules | 4000 hours views, 1000 subs, 30 days
Youtube channel requirements

Today we are announcing changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). While our goal remains to keep the YPP open to as many channels as possible, we recognize we need more safeguards in place to protect creator revenue across the YouTube ecosystem.

What's Changing 

Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, , is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.

One of YouTube’s core values is to provide anyone the opportunity to earn money from a thriving channel. Creators who haven’t yet reached this new threshold can continue to benefit from our Creator Academy, our Help Center, and all the resources on the Creator Site to grow their channels. Once your channel reaches the new threshold, it will be reviewed to make sure it adheres to our policies and guidelines, and if so, monetization will be re-enabled.

What! Are you Kidding Me?

4000 hours and 1000 subscribers in 30 days is impossible for small channel creators and You know it. I checked Reddit and they are going crazy over this decision. Many small creators feels that they were betrayed from Youtube because it is merely impossible to get such kind of reach in limited number of days.

Why 4000 hours, 1000 subscribers, 30 days. YouTube on YouTube Partner Program

Youtube Team handled the Logan Paul Situation very badly. It is clear that this decision is aftermath of that. Someone was saying that it feels like because someone was late for class, the entire class got punished. This is an accurate description on what happened with small channels who were making less money from YouTube Partner Program.

Imagine your channel is getting 4000 hours in last 12 months but only have less than 1000 subscribers, this means you cannot monetize the videos.

Imagine you channel have more than 1000 subscribers but got less than 4000 hours views which 240000 minutes in last 12 months, you still cannot monetize the videos. 4k Hours per year is almost impossible for small creators who depend on organic traffic.

It would be great idea to check the current marketing strategy and use other means of promotions. I am not sure how fast a small creator channel can achieve such a huge requirement. But if you want to monetise, there is no other way. 

YouTubers are searching for alternative platforms for monetizing the content. Unfortunately Vidme, an alternative to YouTube is closing down due to lack of engagement and community contribution. Vimeo can be one one option for uploading videos.

How To Invite Multiple Users and managers To Manage Your Youtube Channel without disclosing login Id and Password.

Update 21-2-18

All the channels which are not met the YouTube new requirements, have received the following message.

As a result of changes to the YouTube Partner program requirements, your channel is currently no longer eligible for monetization.

Tips for Affiliate Marketing For Starters

There are thousands of affiliate marketing ebooks, free courses, paid workshops, courses, guides online. Can a beginner earn money from these methods. Do these Affiliate Marketing Gurus actually earn money from these methods. If they do then how are they doing it. Here are some thought provoking discoveries and affiliate marketing tips For beginners with online checklist that I have discovered from my experiments with affiliate marketing.

Flip Side of Affiliate Marketing

Truth In Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a type of marketing where the affiliate get a small commission for referral for products purchased by others. Anyone can sign up under a merchant site as their affiliates and refer products to others using links, banners or widgets. If a user purchase the product, then you will get a small commission.

My Experiments with Affiliate Marketing

I thought about experimenting with affiliate marketing and wrote some posts related to affiliate marketing. Two major promoted affiliate marketing merchant sites were and Hosting websites.

Hosting Website Affiliate Marketing Posts

1. 16 Best Shared Wordpress Hosting 2017 Compared
2. 5 Efficient Web Hosting Plans with Prons and Cons

Do you want to know how much I earned from these posts from the date of publishing these posts till today: ZERO.

Here is an image of Amazon affiliate home page clicks that I got and all the other statistics.

Amazon Affiliate Marketing Statistics

Amazon Affiliate Marketing Statistics

I have around 110 clicks in the stats which means users has clicked the product link and redirected to for 110 times. Not a single purchase was made by the user. I have added products that are less than 5 dollars to more than 100 dollars. This way I can ensure which product will have high conversion rate. Unfortunately users did not buy anything.

Authentic Websites Gets More Conversion

I think is was majorly because the site was not an authentic niche website for similar products. If the site was discussing only about a particular product then the conversion would have been higher. For new bloggers, this type of affiliate marketing is not be suitable and will not generate any revenue.

Web Hosting Affiliate Marketing Report

Here is the screenshot of web hosting affiliate marketing report.

siteground affiliate marketing income reportHolding Periods in Affiliate Products

I got one sale for site ground web hosting and they have a review period of thirty days.

"We have a standard hold period of 30 days before paying out an affiliate sale to make sure that the referred client actually stays with us past the 30-day money-back period and actively uses their account. We will review this sale 30 days after the purchase date and if it meets our payout requirements, you will receive a commission for it and its status will become Paid."

If the user decide to change the web host or take the money back because of bad experience from web hosting company, then you will not get any money. This is the reality of affiliate marketing.

Concentrated Power on Merchant Sites

Bloggers spend enormous amount of time to write posts on affiliate marketing products and end up getting 3 or 5 sales maximum. Out of that 1-2 users end up changing web hosting company or decide to take money back. Blogger get NOTHING at the end of the day.

Merchant sites have all the "power" to decide whether they should pay you or not. On the pay day, they may cut down your pay saying that some users took their money back or some sales were not done properly.

Lack of Effective Reporting System

Most of the affiliate sites lack an effective reporting system. Bloggers write reviews, add links, banners and do all kinds of social networking to generate leads. The Googleanalytics reportswill showhigh amount of traffic and high engagement rate for these posts. But the merchant site will show only 3-4 unique clicks and no sales.

Blue host affiliate marketing stats

There are couple of issues in tracking the clicks and sales which reduces the revenue of the blogger.

1. No Link Tracking - Users read the review and directly go to the merchant site and bookmark the product or service and buy later. The merchant site do not consider this as a sale.

2. Merchant site uses cookies to track leads - If a user delete the cookies in the browser, no sales are counted.

3. Merchant site uses caches to track leads - If the user delete the cache, you end up having no revenue.

Methods of tracking leads, clicks, sales are different from one merchant site to another. It is better to check how a specific affiliate merchant site is tracking the leads from your website.

Qualified Purchase In Affiliate Marketing

Each merchant site defines what is qualified purchase. An affiliate like you and me gets money only when the sale meets the definition of qualified purchase.

Things to Remember Before Doing Affiliate Marketing

There are couple of things that you need to research before starting affiliate marketing of any merchant site.

Commission Rate

How much is does the affiliate site pay you for each sale. Some merchant sites pay a specific amount like ten dollars for sale and some pay a percentage of sale. It is always better to do affiliate marketing of merchant sites that pays higher commission rate.

Affiliate Marketing Tips For Beginners

Commission Type

There are two major types of commissions.

Action Commission- Action commission is basically pay per action. Commission per one sale, commission of one unique click, per subscription, per referral and commission per download.

Recurring Commission - Recurring commission allow the affiliate to receive a portion of monthly or yearly commission till the user pays the fee to the merchant site. If a user X buy a product from using your link, you get a commission [action commission]. The user X pays some money monthly or yearly as renewed subscription charge to use the service and you get a small commission of that renewal fee paid by user X. I user X pay it for like ten years, you get money for ten years.

Qualified Purchase

As I mentioned before each company has its own definition for qualified purchase. Check out the definition of qualified purchase by Blue Host in their Terms of Service.

"A "Qualified Purchase" is the purchase of Bluehost's hosting services by a new and unique customer who: (i) clicks on an affiliate tracking link, (ii) completes the signup process within ninety (90) days of clicking on the affiliate tracking link, (iii) maintains an active account with Bluehost for a minimum of ninety (90) days; and (iv) did not transfer from a Bluehost partner or related company."

If a merchant site has strict rules like keeping an active account of ninety days, it would be better not to go for that. If a user get disappointed with the service of the product or service and decide to change, then you will end up having no revenue.

Qualified Purchase

Minimum threshold Amount

Companies fixes a minimum amount that you need to achieve to get a payout. This is called minimum threshold. Many affiliate sites set the minimum threshold to be one hundred dollars. It would be really tough task to achieve 100$ if you are a beginner in affiliate marketing and do not have a website or blog with moderate traffic.

Cap in Earnings

Some merchant sites put a cap in earnings per month. This is basically to ensure no spamming is done by the affiliate. It is advisable to check if the merchant site have such terms.

Payment Methods

Many merchant sites prefer to pay using PayPal. Some use wire transfer for the pay out. It is always good to check the payment method and whether that is available in your country. Many payment transfers takes commission or fee for each transfer. It is better to opt for wire transfer to the bank to avoid any delays in transfer via other payment methods or companies.

Restrictions on Activities of an Affiliate

Every merchant site require an affiliate to fulfill certain responsibilities and ensure conditions are met.

Some general restrictions are;
  1. Affiliate should not offer any kind of cash back, rewards or other incentives to drive traffic to the affiliate links.
  2. Affiliate should not put ad links on pop-up/under and SPAM pages.
  3. Affiliate should not engage in banner exchanges, click exchanges, cookie stuffing techniques, Domain forwarding, creating fraudulent accounts, masking, redirecting or tampering of affiliate links and CPV advertising.
  4. Affiliate should not use trademark of the merchant site and misspelled keywords in their domain names.
  5. Affiliate should not claim to be linked with the company.
  6. Affiliate should comply with all laws of their own country and complete necessary legal documentation.

Holding Periods

As I mentioned before, merchant sites have a holding period of specific number of days and they can not pay you in this period.

Holding Periods

Minimum Monthly Sales

Some companies set a number of sales that has to be achieved by the affiliate to reach payout. This is another corporate way to pushing affiliate to generate sales for the company


Few merchants require certain amount of traffic to your site from certain countries in order to approve for affiliate marketing. Some requires traffic from US, UK and Canada especially and they reject sites that have less traffic from these countries.

Affiliate Marketing Tips For Beginners

Affiliate Marketing Tips For Beginners

I read most of these affiliate marketing tips for beginners and most of these GURU advises could be contained in a paragraph. Here they are,

1. Read on terms and reference - How can a beginner understand these terms like recurring commission or a minimum threshold.

2. Make a website or a blog in Wordpress - Why don't beginners think about affiliate marketing without a site. Eg: YouTube marketing.

3. Put link in FaceBook, Twitter - Social media sites are good for starting out and need no investment. It is hard to sustain number of sales.

4. Build an Email List - These days everyone gets some kind of promotional emails. Beginners should think creatively.

5. Do SEO - Doing SEO will only improve traffic if you have enough content. It will not improve conversion rate.

6. Outsource - If you have enough money to spend, you can outsource all the content creation to someone else. Whether you will achive good profit or not is another matter.

Some of the popular affiliate companies online are Amazon, commission junction, SEMrush, Blue Host, SiteGround etc. You can do a Google Search to find out more websites that offer affiliate commission.

Most of the merchants are having customers only because affiliates send them customers. Affiliate Blogs and websites are not just lead generation tools but free customer generation tools for these companies.

They earn so much per customer where the affiliate is just getting a mere commission for the first sale. Most of the merchants do not offer recurring commission and that my friend, is the reality of affiliate marketing.
