In July 2018, I wrote this post, Has the Cryptocurrency Bubble Burst?  If you have not read it, please read that post and then come back here. At the time I wrote the post bitcoin had been to $17,000 but was down to $6,600. Today as I am writing the price of bitcoin is $53,884 which represents a 316.96% increase on the $17,000 figure. Even to the casual observer it is clear that the growth trajectory is upwards for bitcoin. Large financial institutions have completed their due diligence on bitcoin and decided that it is here to say. Elon Musk has even got in on the act. 

How to Buy Bitcoin

It appears that investing in bitcoin is a good financial move. Please remember none of the information on this website constitutes financial advice and is provided as general information only.

Do your own research and if you want to buy bitcoin, Coinbase is a relatively safe place to start. You can sign up for Coinbase here and because I referred you, when you sign up and buy or sell $100 of bitcoin or more, we’ll both earn $10 of free bitcoin!

Is Forex Trading Hard to do?

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info.

What is Forex Trading?

If you have travelled abroad on holiday or a business trip you may have needed to buy some foreign currency to use at your destination. More than likely you will have used your home currency to buy currency for your destination country. Foreign Currency exchange or Forex trading as it is more commonly known is based on this buying and selling of currency pairs, the currency pair being the two currencies that you wish to exchange. Through the buying and selling of currencies at opportune moments it is possible to make a profit. Fundamentally Forex trading is quite easy to understand but that does not mean it’s easy to do profitably.

If you want to start Forex trading the first step would be to find a reputable broker. This article lists the top 25 Forex brokers in the UK ranked by their trust score.

Is Forex Trading Hard?

The majority of Forex traders are not making a profit and this is because of a number of reasons including; a lack of understanding of the complexities of international currency markets, a reluctance to exit a bad trade in the hope that it turns around, poor risk assessment and management, allowing greed to take over and emotionally driven trading. If you are to avoid becoming another failed Forex trader, I recommend the following steps:

*Start trading with a practice account before using any real money.

*Keep a record of all yout trades as you build up your experience.

*Understand the importance of setting up stop loss orders and apply them to your trading procedures.

*When you start, pick currency pairs that are familiar to you.

Create a daily routine that is conducive to good trading practices, sleep, exercise and nutritious food are likely to lead to better trading decisions.

In answer to the question in this post’s title, Forex trading is not hard to do but it is hard to do well. Beware of ‘Fake Gurus’ oversimplifying Forex or offering you a foolproof trading system because it is likely that they are only being successful by selling their ‘system’ rather actual trading success in currency markets.

What are the Benefits of Cashback Credit Cards?

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info.

Regular readers of this website will remember this post that I wrote. 4 Credit Cards to Repair Your Credit Score  .If you are planning to use credit cards strategically, you first need to set your objective. If your objective is to earn cash rewards instead of improving your credit score your choice credit cards would be very different.

Why Use Cashback Credit Cards?

Earn Rewards

If you pay for mandatory expenditure using a cashback credit card you have an opportunity to earn rewards that would not be available to you if you simply used a debit card. If you use this approach, you must remember to pay of the credit card balance in full each month otherwise the interest that you will have to pay may negate the value of any rewards earned.

Sign Up Bonuses

Many cashback credit cards have new customer sign up bonuses and exclusive shopping offers. Providing that you are disciplined with your spending, these could be good opportunties. Imagine a scenario where you can earn tangible items that you could sell for cash.

Warning

“Know thyself.” – Socrates. If you do not have the financial discipline to use cashback credit cards and remember to clear the balances each month – do not go near them. You could end up creating problems for yourself.

What is Ethical Investing ?

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info.

Ethical Investing

Ethical investing is an approach to investing where the investor filters potential investments according to their own values and moral principles. For example, it would be entirely understandable for someone to decide that they do not want to invest in companies that manufacture missiles or tobacco.

The earliest recorded instance of ethical investing in America was the 18th century Quakers who banned their members from spending their time or money in the slave trade. Indeed, historically religion was often a motivation for ethical investment. Today, in addition to religious motivations for ethical investing there there are also concerns for environmental issues, racial equality, gender equity and inclusion.

Do Ethical Investments Perform Well?

There is absolutely no guarantee that ethical investments will perform well over any time period or when compared to index funds. A prudent approach would be select firstly based on your values and then once you have done so assess all of these with performance based criteria. An investment portfolio comprised exclusively of ethical investments will look very different to one focused solely on maximising potential returns for an investor. In practice, ethical investing requires a lot of research, you must go deeper than the corporate brochures and mission statements to discover whether a company’s actions match their words. Unfortunately lots of companies claim to be more ethical than they really are.

If you are interested in investigating ethical investment funds in the United Kingdom, check out this resource. It’s a great starting point for building an ethical investment portfolio.  Please remember that this information does not constitute financial advice.

How to Make Money Giving Blood

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info. This video was first published on my YouTube channel; you can subscribe to my channel here http://bit.ly/1BuKsoM .

Make Money Giving Blood

Following on from my earlier video about making money selling your own hair, here is another more unusual way of making money.  This time the focus is on making money by giving blood.  This is not an opportunity for those of you who are squeamish about needles of course. If you have no issue with having a needle inserted into your arm, this will be a straightforward way for you to make some extra cash.

How Does it Work?

In this video, I discuss two websites that offer individuals the chance to earn money by giving blood. One of these websites is relevant for the United Kingdom and the other is for those in the United States. If you live outside of these two countries, a local Google search will no doubt find alternatives relevant for your country.

Next Steps

Does the idea of having a making money by giving blood appeal to you? Do you have experience of giving blood? Let me know in the comments section below. Also, get in touch if you would like my help. My email address is mike@learnmoney.io

Are you Missing out on Compound Interest?

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info.

What is Compound Interest?

The thought of saving money is not exciting to many people, they would rather buy things with the money that comes into their hands or wallets. Compound interest makes the prospect of saving money more exciting.

Compound interest is when you earn interest on the interest that you accrued as well as the initial sum invested.

How Does it Work?

For example, if you saved £1000 at an interest rate of 5%, at the end of year 1 you would have £1050, with a compound interest account you would then earn 5% interest on £1050 by the end of year 2.

This would mean that your total going into year three would be £1102.50 instead of £1100.00 if you had earned 5% each year. Over the long term, the increases to your savings total become very significant so much so that Albert Einstein reputedly said of compound interest,

“Compound Interest is the most powerful force in the universe. Compound interest is the 8th wonder of the world.  He who understands it, earns it; he who doesn’t, pays it.”

Albert Einstein

Savings Accounts & Compound Interest

Given how beneficial Compound Interest is to the individual saver, you would expect all savings accounts to offer Compound Interest to their account holders but that is not the case. There is every possibility that your savings accounts are not paying you compound interest, please check with your bank or building society. Your bank may be only paying you simple interest, which is interest paid annually on the principal sum only.

If they are not, study the example below and open a new account that will pay you compound interest from any provider you choose. Remember that to really benefit from compound interest you will need to save for the long term.

This is an example of a UK savings account that pays compound interest. International readers, you may need to do some investigative work to find comparable savings accounts in your country.

Next Steps

Hopefully this post has made you re-consider the savings accounts that you have; now is the time to open an account that will pay you compound interest. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below. Also, get in touch if you would like my help. My email address is mike@learnmoney.io

Make Money with the Amazon Influencer Program

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info. This video was first published on my YouTube channel; you can subscribe to my channel here http://bit.ly/1BuKsoM .

Amazon Influencer Program

The Amazon Influencer Program is one of the more straightforward ways of making money online based on Affiliate Marketing. It is a method that would be accurately described as intermediate level rather than beginner. This is because you will need to have built an audience on at least one Social Media platform to be accepted into the Amazon Influencer Program. The full list of requirements is here. 

How Does it Work?

The Amazon Influencer Program is an extension of the Amazon Affiliates Program. The Amazon Affiliates Program is virtually open to all; once accepted, into the program, affiliates are able to promote Amazon products via affiliate links and earn a commission when purchases are made within 24 hours of their links being clicked.

The Amazon Influencer Program has two key differences from the Affiliates Program. First of all, you need to meet more stringent criteria before you are accepted, you must have a Social Media audience. Secondly, instead of promoting lots of different affiliate links Amazon gives you your own Amazon Shop Page to send your audience to.

Purchases that follow clicks on your dedicated Influencer page earn you commissions ranging from 1-10% dependent on the product category.

In the video, I demonstrate my Amazon Shop Page and explain how to take the opportunity presented to you by Amazon.

Next Steps

Does the idea of having a Amazon Influencer page appeal to you? Are you already part of the Amazon Affiliates Program? Let me know in the comments section below. Also, get in touch if you would like my help. My email address is mike@learnmoney.io

How to get Paid Referring Friends for Jobs

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info. This video was first published on my YouTube channel; you can subscribe to my channel here http://bit.ly/1BuKsoM .

Extra Cash

Most of us would appreciate the chance to earn some extra cash but from my anecdotal research I know that few people seriously consider the opportunity to make extra cash by referring their friends for relevant jobs.

It’s not just a pipe dream, it can be your reality too. In this video, I discuss 2  websites that will enable you to do just that; you do not have to be a recruitment consultant to connect your friends with jobs to help them continue or improve their career.  The websites I discuss are just examples, there are many more offering similar incentives for helping companies to find the right staff. If you live outside of the countries I discuss in the video, do not lose heart because there are likely to be similar offers in your country too.

Referring Friends

In the video, the first website I discuss relates to the American employment market and then the second is relevant for the United Kingdom employment market.

Referring friends for relevant jobs can be a fairly lucrative activity because ultimately you will receive an amount equivalent to a percentage of the new employee’s salary without having to do a lot of work.  It can be an excellent way of generating extra cash.

How Does it Work?

In the video, I discuss specific websites that will enable you to earn extra cash by referring your friends for jobs. Usually your friend will have to be successful with their job application and to keep the job beyond the probation period for you to receive your money.

 Next Steps

Make a list of friends who are looking for work and arrange a time for you to discuss with them the possibility of you referring them for a job. When you have,  let me know in the comments section below.
