I think I know the reason why you are reading this: you are one of those who are excited about Windows 10! You’ve read about how Microsoft is skipping Windows 9 and this got you intrigued and you’ve read somewhere that you can actually get a taste of Windows 10 now. Of course I have mentioned that in my post about Windows 10 yesterday.
Well, if you are really up to it, the first step in trying out Windows 10 is getting the preview software, you can get it by joining the Windows Insider Program, there you will be able to download the Windows 10 ISO image. It is best to try the installation on another computer, a computer that is just for testing. Do not install on your main computer because this is still a program in progress. If you do not have a test PC, you can install it in a virtual machine.
After you have downloaded the Windows 10 ISO image, you have three options: the first one is to burn it to an optical disk; second option is to create a bootable USB flash drive from it; third option is to just attach the image to an existing virtual machine.
The installation is very simple, it is merely all about clicking the ‘Next’ button, it’s dead simple you do not actually need to have a guide.
But if you think you can’t do the installation without actually having seen how it’s done, here’s a video that shows you the actual installation process:
This lesson will show you how to create you Facebook page. This step is very easy and straightforward. To create a Facebook page you must have a Facebook account. Any account will do, even a fresh account. In this lesson we are using a freshly made account. I have just created this account, as you can see it doesn’t even have a cover. Friends as of this time is not important. We can grow our page even if the profile we are using doesn’t have any friends. This profile is bare, it doesn’t have a post, we only have our profile picture for starters. We are creating a page that is dedicated to Do it yourself, a niche that can be profitable if approached correctly. We will name this page “Everyday Do-it-yourself Ninja.”
To start creating your page, click this button right here, and from the drop down menu, choose “Create Page.” We are given a lot of options but we will choose “Community” because the page we are going to create is a community. We now type in the name of our page, Everyday D.i.y. Ninja. After clicking the Get Started button we are prompted to enter some details about our page. I have prepared a short line of description and we will just copy and paste it here. This is just a quick description. We can edit this later. We can add a lot more to the description later too in the long description section. Then we will enter a unique Facebook web address for our page, it should be easy to remember. Of course the best address to choose is the name of our page. After entering our desired Facebook web address, we proceed to uploading a profile picture. The profile picture you choose plays a very important role in having people actually like your page. People judge by what they see. I hastily created a cute ninja profile picture. A ninja a person who excels in a particular skill or activity and DIY people are considered ninjas in their own right.
After uploading a profile picture we are prompted to promote the page. We are not doing it as of now so we will skip it. Now your page is created and published, and Facebook will show you help tips in case you know nothing about the parts of Facebook pages. To enhance the look of our page, we will upload a cover picture or a header. Now, the page looks good after we have uploaded the cover image.
We are now looking at a published Facebook page. The next step is tweaking the settings of the page. We will start with the most basic of page settings. We can do the bigger settings later.
We now click the Settings button to go to the Settings section. We do not want spammers to feast on our page, so we will prevent them from doing it by not allowing everyone the ability to post on our timeline. We uncheck these two boxes here. We can leave the other settings at default as of now. We will go back to them later as we progress with our page and new settings are needed. Everything in this section looks good as of now, so let us go to the Page Info section to see if there are things we could tweak there. In the Page info section you can add the long description for your page. It is helpful to add important keywords in this section, it will help people find your page when they do a search on Facebook. We will leave this blank as of now, here we can add a website if we have one. We can add the long description and website later. What is important is that I have shown you where to add the long description and website. This is the Page Roles section. we can see that there is only one Admin controlling this page as of now. Later I will show you how to add multiple administrators to this page via this section.
Here are more niches that can be considered evergreen:
Hobbies and Interests. This niche includes biking, stamp collecting, bird watching, skateboarding.
Crafts: knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, drawing, cheap jewelry creation. This niche is great for promoting crafts materials that come from Amazon.
Do-it-Yourself. Home repair, gardening, carpentry, DIY projects. This niche is also great for promoting Amazon products.
Funny videos and Interesting Stuff. This is quite saturated niche but with a twist you can squeeze a good amount of money out of it every month. Do you know how much site like nine gag earn every month? If you know how much these kinds of sites are making every month, I am sure you’ll start your own funny videos and interesting stuff page.
News and Trends. This is good for monetizing with Adsense. Once you have enough fans in your fan page you will see a good amount of traffic pouring into your site every time you update your page.
The list of niches that you can try can be limitless. If you will take time to do some research, spy on some pages and sites, you will discover a lot of niches that could be green with money. You must change your way of looking at Facebook now. Every time you log on to Facebook use the marketer’s eye. Observe your news feed, look at the kind of advertisements that appear on Facebook, check them out if you feel that they could be interesting, who knows you will stumble upon a gold mine of a niche.
The niches I have shown you are enough to get you started. It would be good if one of the things that you are passionate about falls under any one of these evergreen niches. After you find a niche you like, we can proceed to the next module which is about making your fan page.
I have noticed lately that Chrome hangs or freezes up every time I use Facebook. It usually happens after I get past the login page. This is quite annoying because I use Facebook everyday and I do not want to use another browser just to be able to access Facebook. I did a little research and I found out that there are lots of those who have the same experience as me. There are a number of solutions offered online but only one worked for me. This is it: open a new tab in Chrome and paste this to the address bar: chrome:flags and press the Enter key. On the page that will show disable GPU-composting and Threaded composting. Restart Chrome and see how Facebook loads smoothly on Chrome.
