Lead gen road map

Just a daily update on our lead gen progress. We’re currently around 6 projects with about 81 days left. My goal for this final push is to have 10 lead gen properties, fully optimized, backlink schedule in place, and make sure we did all the necessary work. I want to make sure by the time 2019 hits, we can start generating real income from these sites and continue to scale our business. By the time it hits august 2019, I want to be at around 40 lead gen sites bringing in around $20,000. It’s hard to see where Michelle and I will be in the next year, but our first goal to reach is to make enough profit to support our monthly bills and fund our projects.

Save on your AC bill with one easy step!

Have you ever wondered why your apartment is set at 70 degrees and the temperature stays consistently around 85 degrees? Well it may not be an issue with the AC unit itself but rather the windows that are installed throughout the home. Windows have a huge impact on how much heat actually enters through and especially during the summer times when the heat gets to deadly temperatures its important to be prepared with the correct windows. When the windows don’t keep out as much heat as it can, the AC bills can rack up real quick. It is important to check out which windows you currently have as different types of windows can be the difference between a $400 bill and a $200 bill. Also, if you have a lot of valuables and want to prevent people from looking through your windows, there are different types of windows that can help with security issues as well. Window installation services can usually help with security, glare and heat issues that you may be experiencing. Certain types of films can help reduce the amount of heat transferring through the glass windows, or others may help tint the windows to not be see through. These can be so helpful and the results are immediately noticeable. The overall air humidity and heat is significantly lower within the home and you can in return feel the AC flowing through the vents. The overall temperature of the entire apartment will feel cooler and fresher. With the different types of window installation, it is important to get the correct services. Getting windows installed unprofessionally can result in sloppy looking windows and the apartment complex may not allow it. The visual presentation of the tinted windows will be barely noticeable but will create the world of a difference.

Window installation services also extend to those who may have had unfortunate events where the glass has been broken or cracked. Those cracked and broken windows have to replaced immediately to avoid robbery and theft. It is a simple and quick process and once you have decided on which business to trust, you should go ahead and give them a call for a free quote. Once they’ve offered a free quote over the phone or online, you can schedule an appointment for their earliest open time slot. Ask them the different glass options and see which best fits the criteria for what you need replaced. Also, it is important to check price points so you can get the best offer for quality service. Contractors will be in and out before you know it! Typically the window installation lasts anywhere from 1-5 hours depending on how much glass needs to be replaced and what types of windows need to be installed. Doing the thorough research to ensure quality windows and service will be essential as you may need to revisit their service in the future. It is always a good idea to create a lasting positive relationship. Many window installers also assist with car windshield repair as well.

Steps to spice up your home without breaking bank!

Have you ever walked around your home and noticed your white walls weren’t so white anymore? Or the one chip that you made last year, turned into 4 and 5 bigger chips throughout the house? I definitely began to notice the little scratches and chips that have accumulated and  added some age to my home. To offset this, I decided to repaint some walls of my house and add a few accent walls to bring some life and energy back into the space. I just searched painting near me and found a list of some painting contractors in the area to repaint and restore the walls of my once youthful home. I went onto Pinterest to get some ideas on how I wanted to paint the walls and decided that I still wanted to stick to white walls throughout despite the wear and tear it might eventually accumulate through time. Along with repainting my walls white once again, I decided to add some accent walls throughout. I decided on a dark gray tone to bring a modern aesthetic into the old home. The white walls were beautifully complemented with the one dark gray accent wall placed strategically in a space that wasn’t too large or too thin. I wanted the space to create a space of clarity yet still look chic. I didn’t want the colors to be too daring or bold as it was a space that would be visited often. It’s important to keep in mind that colors that are too bright or too bland can have an effect on the people who may visit and for the person who will be living there.

To add some more life into the bland room I decided to bring some more faux plants into a few corners of the house. The extra pop of green was something I wanted to incorporate for some time but I knew that maintaining a living plant would be too difficult and might attract bugs. So I decided to go with two faux plants in addition to the dark gray accent wall and the overall aesthetic was exactly what I was going for! I love the modern aesthetic that was completely revamped just from repainting and adding a few décor throughout the house. If you have trouble finding a good painting contractor try calling around and asking multiple businesses for some quotes and talk to the manager and see if they are someone you would trust to repaint your house! If they seem professional and understanding and patient then that is someone who would probably deliver their services in the same manner. Typically the painting contractor will prep by removing any furniture that is in the way and taping the outline to not smear onto the floors. Once they are done preparing the area, they will proceed to prime the walls for the paint for longer lasting colors. Then once the area is completely dry proceed to remove the covers and tape. Hopefully by this time you will be completely happy and satisfied with the color and can add some matching décor to add onto your new living space!

Eyebrow Tattoo? Say what?

What could be the secret to perfectly symmetrical brows at 8 AM in the morning? Do people wake up hours earlier to look this flawless and put together? These were just some of the questions I was asking myself whenever I saw someone early in the morning looking like they’ve been up for hours applying makeup to perfection. This little tip might be able to save you hundreds of dollars and shave hours off your morning beauty routine.

The new trend is called microblading and is essentially an microblading near me. Yes, you heard me correctly, people are actually getting their eyebrows tattooed these days! Microblading is a specialized technique where the technician will implant pigment (instead of ink) into the skin to create thin hair-like strokes resembling your actual eyebrow hairs. I am someone who was not blessed with full defined brows and usually spend a good 30 minutes beating my face before rushing out for work. Now if someone told me that I could just tattoo the perfect symmetrical shapes onto my face, it’d be a game changer. I’ve actually seen multiple people with microblading done and you honestly can’t tell the difference. The end product looks so natural and real it is shocking. Many microblading studios even go as far to do powder microblading which closely resembles eyebrows with ombre makeup. It starts light at the beginning of the brow and gets progressively darker towards the arch and tip. Truly amazing artistry and to think that you can get eyebrows that look like flawless makeup tattooed on permanently is crazy to imagine! Now, there is a catch to this permanent makeup and that is that it is only semi-permanent as it fades over time. They say it typically lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 years depending on the person and their skin type. Oilier skin types tend to last shorter because of the overactive oil glands. So it is recommended that you get a follow up treatment done as it begins to fade to maintain the full look. Now, this also means that you are not committed to this one shape forever. If the eyebrow trends were to change next year, you would not be stuck with the microbladed brows forever. It is still a good investment though, because you would save a lot of money on brow products which usually only last a month or two at most. This procedure is a bit on the pricier side but I trust that the price is a good indication of the technician’s level of skill and techniques. It is important to research the technician you want to trust to tattoo on your brows. You’ve seen the microblading gone wrong testimonials and that is definitely something you want to avoid. Microblading all in all seems like a great investment into yourself and your appearance especially if you have sparse eyebrows and end up spending a lot of time and money into the products you use to create your brows every day! This will end up saving you a lot of stress and frustration in trying to create symmetrical brows with a hand that may not be so steady every day!
