This startup wants workers to get access to their wages before payday

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Immediate wants to offer a way to get money you earned faster in case you have an emergency bill, for a small flat fee instead of a high-interest loan. Imagine you have an electric bill due Wednesday, but you don’t get paid until Friday. Then you got a flat tire. You need to fix the car to make it to work for the rest of the week, and you also still need to buy groceries. That bill payment will have to wait, which means you could end up with a penalty, a ding against your credit score, or even with your lights shut off. Read Full Story

How to accomplish life-admin tasks, aka the most boring things on your to-do list list

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Administrative tasks, such as making a dentist appointment or paying your bills, are the worst. But if you don’t do these things regularly, they pile up. Sometimes you feel like you can’t manage your life because of huge, challenging projects you need to get done. But in my experience as a time management coach, people can just as easily feel like a failure because of the little things: the doctors’ appointments never made, the clothes heaps on the floor, or the constant orange glow of the change oil light on their dashboard.

This flat-pack purse is designed to be shipped. Ikea built an empire out of a simple idea: furniture designed in such a way that it could be flat-packed to ease shipping costs and eliminate the need for a delivery truck. Today, that same innovation comes to purses, as the Milan-based bag label Up To You Anthology has created a flat-pack purse. It comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, along with leather and felt options. And yes, just like Ikea furniture, you have to assemble it yourself. Read Full Story

You Can Have My Old Business That Makes $381,722 a Month

{ object.primary_image.title }}

I was talking with my friend who works at Keap (formally known as Infusionsoft) and he was breaking down how people still make millions of dollars selling info products and ebooks. Now, I don’t sell info products as heavily as I used to, but when I focused on it 100% of the time, my numbers were great. Just look at the screenshot above.

How to Find Your Target Audience

{ object.primary_image.title }}

When I first started out in marketing, I thought traffic was everything. I wanted to be as big as companies like HubSpot . Just look at the image above and you’ll see how many visitors they are getting. They generate 29.61 million visitors a month from 11.74 million people. And those visitors produce roughly 10 billion dollars of market cap . Now, let’s look at NeilPatel.com. Can you guess how many visitors I’m getting each month? I’m generating roughly 8.717 million visitors a month from 3.616 million people. When you look at it from a unique visitor perspective, HubSpot is getting 3.24 times more unique visitors than me. So, in theory, I should be worth roughly 3 times less than them, right? Well, technically I’m not even worth 1/10th of them. Not even close. Why is that? It’s because I didn’t go after the right target audience, while HubSpot did. …
