Its all about connecting and helping

I was thinking about why some people make more money with very few customers while other make very little with many.

It all comes down to making good connections with people and helping them what they want to achieve. If you can take them with their hand and get them where they want to be then they will pay you whatever you want.

Want an example?

Look at google. What are they actually doing for all these years. They are connecting people to what they are searching for. They are helping them and in return people are going back to them again and again. Right!

Whenever someone need to do something new they are totally. In early days when there was no internet they use to go to person who can connect them to the right guy. Now this is done by internet.

Whenever someone need something they switch-on their computer or pull out their smartphone/ipad/tablet go to their favourite search engine and try to find out the right place or person. If they already know someone who can help them then they don’t go to search engine, rather they go to that person and ask for help. Now that person has this opportunity to make money by helping. He can either directly charge for helping or give that person a affiliate link through which he can earn commission. You can be this middle man.

Need to think about making more connections and helping even more.

Procrastination: My Biggest Enemy

I think of doing things that are wonderful. I make the whole plan and when it comes to do those I procrastinate. I think I will do this at that time or later and the things get stuck. When I think about them again they doesn’t feel so much exciting. That result in things never get done.

I know its bad, very bad.

I need to get out of this habit and only way I can handle this is by starting at the moment I think something needs to be done.

Today I did one. I thought of writing a post on rajeevverma.com and a post is live there Smile

Feels good.

Going back to basics

I like to learn but making money is as important as well. I have been learning for long time and I do believe I can learn a lot more but one thing to remind myself I need to make money with what I have learnt. If I fail to do that then their is no use of what I have learnt. I know a lot of people who were genius who learnt more than what average people can think of but they never made a mark because they never tried to use what they learnt. They are considered failures and no one remembers them. I don't want to live or die like that.I need to put it work.

Free is Good

Success of any business depends upon the ability of that business to give away free stuff. Business needs to make their value in front of customer before they can sell anything to its customers.
Think about it, how many times you have purchased anything from a company you know nothing about. Those who succeeded in selling to you either they tried to make themselves familiar by advertising or they have tried to  lure you with free stuff. Soap free with shampoo, shampoo free with lotion or something like that.
Free is actually premium. You give them free stuff and you buy trust. And later whenever you want to sell them something they will buy.

Developing for Android Tablet

I wrote about learning to build android applications and as I now own an android tablet I have started to learn about optimizing the application for tablet as well.
I think the basic idea is same for the apps but the interface which we design for phones doesn't look good on tablet at all. I ran a few apps on my HTC Flyer tablet which have interfaces built only for phones and I must say it sucks. Everyone with an application on android market should get an interface update for tablets as the tablet market share is increasing and you may loose a large percentage of user by not having a properly optimized tablet interface.
Designing interfaces for tablet is much more interesting than designing for phones as you have more space to use and you get freedom to place components your own way.
Will keep you updated about my progress.

Day 2 with HTC flyer

I recently purchased HTC flyer and got it delivered yesterday. I had this concern about the battery life of the tablet but I think it has worked great for the day. I used it for around 7 hours with WiFi on, surfing the web, video playing, paying games but the battery worked well.  The indicators show that most of the power is consumed by display and little bit each by other services like WiFi, sound etc. I like to keep my brightness settings to lowest and this tablet still shows bright dispay. I will try to find a solution to lower the brightness even further.
It is said that battery needs to be charged and discharged fully before it gains its full potential. I will keep you updated about this (actually I want to keep record for myself and you don't need to read it.
And with this post I kept my resolution for 4th day. See you tommorrow.

Got new HTC flyer tablet from ngpay

Today I almost forgot about posting on the blog. I got my new HTC flyer tablet which I ordered using ngpay a few days back. I didn't liked the experience buying with ngpay and will write about it in detail soon. At least I got this tab finally.

I started playing with it as soon as i got it and installed the regularly used software on the device. I have been using android for more than a year now so I know what i needed. Installing the software and setting up the device took all my attention and I about and about forgot about the resolution I took 2 days back.

This post can be considered a placeholder and i will come back to it and improve it later (or may be not).

So see ya tomorrow..

Why iPhone Developers Earn more than Android Developers

This debate is going on for long time why developers prefers to make apps and games for iPhone and iPad rather than android. Reason is simple “earning potential”.
There is a recent statement by Flurry that android developers make around 24% as much as what they make when they develop same app or game for iPhone.
Now the question is why is that.
What I believe is that people who buy android devices are mostly are those who wanted to buy an iPhone/iPad but they were not able to because of the price. If they are short of money then how do you think they are going to buy any costly app or games.
On the other hand iPhone owners have sufficient funds to buy an iPhone or iPad and then stuff it with premium apps and games.
If you think differently please leave a comment.

Resolution: 30 Day Regular Posting

I have been an off and on poster to this blog and might have posted about this previously (honestly I don’t know). There is no other reason for this other then laziness.
Laziness is dear to me and I can not leave it altogether at once so I am taking a small step today and taking this resolution of posting at least single blog post everyday for next 30 days.
I might start enjoying posting regularly in this time period or may get bored but I am definitely going to continue for 30 days and later I will try to extend this period and who knows I may convert this into a habit.
Lets See… Smile

Flipkart Rocks

I have been into online shopping for a while and now I can say that if you want to purchase anything in india related to books, mobile phones, tablets, you will get them most comfortably at Flipkart
Whenever I have purchased from flipkart I have received the delivery within the desired time and sometimes even earlier then the expected delivery time. The packaging is always very well done.
You will find very good discount on flipkart and also the products are priced economical then anywhere else.
They have proved themselves very reliable by offering 30 days exchange warranty as well. You will always get a replacement if the product reaches you is defected.
If you are considering buying something you should have a look at flipkart.

Getting on with android

I started learning java and android app building a while back. Everywhere I looked they said 
Learn java first and then start learning to make android application. 
I suggest a different approach. 
Don't learn java completely before jumping into android development. You just need to know only java basics to get started with android. 
Select a java video tutorial on YouTube. See how it works. Then jump straight into android. Learn what you need to know about java along with android. This way you will save a lot of time and learn both things to the extent where you will find you have wasted far lesser time. 
Suggested books to learn Java for android development and android app development.

Hope this will help a few.

Android Development

This time I am sticking to this.
If you have read few post on this blog you have noticed that I jump again and again and never stick to something.
This time I am sticking to something here. I have started to learn Java a while ago and now I am going to learn android app development this time and make some nice applications for android.

What is Aweber? Huh..!!

If you are looking for something about aweber then you go here.

If not read on..
In my last post I wrote about my new domain whatisaweber.com
I learnt a new lesson. Always read the agreement word to word and understand it completely. I made a mistake and registered a domain with aweber trademark in it. Today I got this mail from aweber that they do not allow trademark usage by their affiliates in domain names. I am told to cancel the domain as soon as possible.
Now will have to find another way to promote aweber.

Niche site

I am now into making money by making some quick niche sites. To get started yesterday I registered new domain  whatisaweber.com to make money with aweber and other newsletter service affiliate programmes. I am choosing aweber as it is one of the finest affiliate programme which pays 30% of the money spend by the user you refer for life.

I will spend some time designing the site and pushing some content into it and then some more time in getting it rank well in search engine and will see if that works. As it is my first attempt at it I might have to change the plan. I will keep you posted about the progress I make with what is aweber.com

My first love in tech : Mobile Phones

I try to learn many things but my brain always returns to mobile phones. I tried to learn developing mobile phone apps when I got my first Symbian mobile but failed as I never had even an introduction of programming at that time. Now as I can write few small scripts in PHP I again want to write applications for mobile phones.
Yes I can write application for mobile web with PHP but I want to write native mobile apps. Not Symbian for sure now.
I have an android phone and I am learning java as android apps are written in java. I have tried appinventor but it lacks functions seriously. 
I again got back to my favorite programming books Head first series to learn java
Here is the link to the book: Head First Java, 2nd Edition

Finishing PHP

I started learning PHP a while ago and left it incomplete. In my last post I wrote about the pot of gold. Before starting to make money with medical affiliate programs I thought if finishing php training.

After I finish PHP I will be learning Java too. Already started with the basics.

This time I am going to finish things properly.

First thing first

The most important here is to do first thing first.
I am working in internet world for 4 years now but lots of people who are inexperienced in comparison to me have done more good. This is simply because I was learning and they were doing things. 
I am now trying to reverse this now. I think I have learnt a lot and now its time to put it into work.
I have started to post every where. I need to put this into practice. I will not procrastinate posting and do it on first priority.

Rajeev Verma Helpdesk

My friends regularly ask me questions on various topics and I use to find answers to those questions if I don't know. I thought about why not to make a site with all those questions and answers.
With this idea in mind I made a helpdesk in a subdirectory of rajeev verma .com . You can find it here:
Deleted it to cut down work
If you too have some question then you can too make an account (free) and ask me question on any topic.

Take Action

I was again reading posts on Warrior forum and found a post that says "I took action".  Most of the time this is the answer to all the problems we are facing. We have the caliber, talent, knowledge and every other bits that are needed to get success but the only problem is we are not taking the action. Breaking this barrier can do all the magic.
I am one of these people and want to change this.

Learning Again.

In my last post I wrote about switching back to making money online. I started to learn again but the biggest challange is "finishing what I have started".

I need to take one step at a time. First one here will be to start engaging in conversation and expressing things that I believe.

If I take,every step separately than I will succeed.

Back to online Marketing

I am a quick switcher. Sometime I think of doing good in studies then starts studying days and night and then again go back to my first love "online marketing". This time my first love has won again.
Nest month is MP PrePG. I am not confident I will be able to concentrate much on online marketing for this month. Chances are I will go to study again in coming days.
God knows where I will reach if I live like that.

For people like me here is a suggested reading

Error while posting

I wrote a post on my mobile using blogaway, the app I use to post from my android phone. Blogger refused to accept that post saying "bad request".

I am writing this post to check whether that problem is solved or not.

The Adsense Blog

I have always been a great fan of making money with adsense and wrote some
quick tutorials on some forums about it too which were appreciated by the
I was just looking through the adsense help center and this came into mind
to check the adsense blog. While checking it i thought who owns the domain ( too much load already to  manage another domain: domain deleted now).  I quickly get onto godaddy and was surprised to know
that this domain was free. I registered it. Now i am planning to write some
tutorials and also starting unofficial adsense forum under this domain.
Do check out if you are interested in adsense too

Enjoying Things

Competing with all your heart is good. Being passionate about things is virtue but why to make these things take away all your enjoyment.
I was once like that but now I enjoy things. I have lost lot but I try to make people understand this before they loose to much.

Better Finish

Another random title. Sorry for that.
I am getting annoyed with my habit of starting things and not finishing them well. Actually I have learnt so many things and not put them to use that they can not only be considered and waste of time. Some time they come handy but that is not the purpose of learning anything.
You can think of this habit as starting to cook and not leaving food uncooked. You can't eat it, can you?

New year Resolution

At least one new year resolution should be made even if you are sure that you won't be able to fulfill it.
My resolution for this year is to stop procrastinating and become a bit disciplined.

A book I would like to suggest:
