How To Watermark Your Photos Using PicsArt App

Recently, I had an issue with a female blogger which I will not reveal her name, she took one of my images, removed the watermark and posted it on her blog, In other to prevent such to happen again, I learnt the best way to watermark photos and stop people from stealing them.
Other bloggers and website owners keeps taking your photos without properly crediting you and you feel bad about it? Worry, no more as today, I will be sharing with you a simple way to watermark your photos.

Ever since, I started using this method to watermark my photos, other bloggers do copy me without crediting me but I don't bother again as my blog name is written clearly on the photos and someone don't need to tell you before you know that the photos were lifted from my blog.

With PicsArt on your android phone, you can easily watermark your photos and use them in your blog posts, photos you can watermark are those photos you took using your phone camera or eyewitnesses sent to you not that you go online and pick images and start putting watermarks on them.

Now go to Google Play Store and install PicsArt.

Launch it, you will see and click on the + icon as seen below.

Click on "Edit" to choose a picture and make some changes to it, "Collage" to make photo collage, "Draw" to draw on your photos and "Camera" to use your phone camera to snap and make changes to it. But for the purpose of this tutorial, let's use the "Edit" feature.
After clicking on "Edit", pictures in your Gallery will pop up, choose a photo you wish to work on.

For this tutorial, we will be using this photo below...
Now to watermark the photo, slide left and Click on "Add Photo" and choose a photo you wish to use. Or click on ''Text'' to use text if you don't have a good transparent design for watermark.
You can add or reduce the Opacity of the image you're using as watermark, crop it, move it up and down or make more changes to it.
When you are done, save your changes,
And finally save your work by clicking on Gallery.
That's how to watermark your photos using Picsart, I hope you find the tutorial useful?

Difference Between Ponzi Scheme And Network Marketing

The truth is both Ponzi and Network Marketing are Pyramid Schemes.

What is a Pyramid Scheme?

A Pyramid Scheme is a business model which involves one person recruiting two or more persons and those persons recruiting more people under the promise of bonuses and commission.
A Ponzi Scheme  has a pyramidal structure without any Products or Services while Network Marketing or Multi Level Marketing also has a pyramidal structure but with Products or Services.

Similarities between them is that to Sign up or Join the platform, you have to pay a particular sum of money and you also need to recruit people to get to another level.

As a marketer who wants to advertise products/services for a company or bring in more people, I see no reason why I should be the one to pay before working for or with them.

In both Business Model from my observation, Only about 90% are successful and the source of their money  is from the newly recruited ones and those who are not able to recruit at all.

The 90% are the ones you see driving exotic cars,Going on Holidays abroad, Building mansions etc.

Most of them don't even buy the products or use them at all.

This is called paying Peter with Paul's money.

MLM disguises under sales of products but I can categorically tell you that when you get into the system you can only survive by recruiting people.

MLM and Ponzi is also full of deceit as they promise you Heaven and Earth under the pretence of wanting to change the story of your life but at the end of the day you would realise you are only wasting your precious time, money and energy.

If any of them tells you, you don't need to recruit, my dear, run for your life.

Most MLM Company's sells health products and in as much as some of this products work, they are way too expensive.

The time you waste on both business models could be channeled into your personal Brand.

I know of other Good Networks sha oh.

Examples are Computer Network, Road Network, Plumbing Network, Electric Network, Network of Friends and Families, Business Network etc.

Stop looking for fast money. Go and learn a skill, offer services, get a job, or go into trading.

My Experience With Domainking.ng

Today, I will be sharing my experience with Domainking.ng, the domain registrar I buy all my domains from.

Before I proceed, let's know what Domainking is all about. Domainking is the world leading domain registrar accredited with Asian and African registries to sell domains ranging from .com, .com.ng. ng, .info, .biz, extensions.

Domainking does not only sell domains, they are also into Web Hosting and Wordpress Blog Hosting, Domainking started business in Nigeria late 2014 and to create awareness about their brand, they gave bloggers and website designers the opportunity to buy .com domains for N499 for a period of two months.

It was during this .com domain for N499 promo that I came about Domainking on Ogbongeblog, I quickly rushed and bought Jaybossng.com at that rate and I linked it to my entertainment blog.

That was the beginning of my good time with Domainking, after my first domain with them a female blogger and a close friend contacted me to buy a domain for her I still bought it on Domainking due to their service and good customer relationship am enjoying.

As a company that holds it's customer with high esteem, at the beginning of 2015 Domainking organised a contest for bloggers which was tagged ''DomainKing.NG Lucky Blogger Contest'', I participated in the contest and I won the third prize which I announced on my blog here.

Below are the things that got me attracted to Domainking.ng....

1. Timely customer service: There is not time that you will contact Domainking customer service that they will let you down, for this reason i rate them high.

2. Payment method: Due to the unsteady dollar exchange rate, Domainking.ng offers its customers the option of paying in Naira by using their Naira debit cards, bank transfer or bank deposit, features some Nigerian registrars have not adopted.

3.  Domain redirecting: Domainking have also helped me by redirecting my domain to my blog when i could not do it by myself, its very rare for a registrar to do this.

4. Free custom emails: Every domain purchase on Domainking.ng comes with two free custom emails.

For your domains and Web Hosting, I recommend Domainking.ng.

Do you use Domainking, what's your experience with them?  Share with me.

How Pastors Can Increase Their Income In The Current Economic Recession By Blogging

Today on my blog, I will be sharing with you how you as a pastor or an aspiring one can start a blog and make money from it during this time of economic recession.

You will learn how to title your post, monetize it and promote it on Social media.

Follow me below...

Due to the massive retrenchment in the country and economic recession still looming, it is pertinent to a conclusion that church goers are also getting a bite of the dwindling economic.

In view of this, their financial quota to the church may decline. Hence, the income of the pastor may have ascending hindrance

How can this new development be managed to negate the current alarming state of the country?

Well, the solution still remains diversification of income.

For example, a pastor with physical 3000 members can turn them into 3000 online active members.  

What do I mean?

1. Create a church blog or personal blog eg pastorxxxxx.org. Remember content is the key.

2. You already have the traffic, Get an adsense account, Place on the blog. Most pastors have psychological intelligence.

READ ALSO: How Google Adsense Approved Me With Just 8 Blog Posts

3. They want people want to hear, For example, jambite need admission Unemployed needs jobs, frustrated single ladies need a husband, A sick man need good health. Many people want to be rich either by miracle or otherwise.

4. So the blog content should be in the format below.

1st Blog post: 2016 a year of unprecedented riches - Claim it here

After that, the post can have all the jargons with relevant keep words

2nd Post title: Reasons why you are still single - God's revelation

3rd Post title: Your Jamb reg number will be your admission number - claim it here.

Just those type of titles and then your content are theologically fit.

After that, on Sunday or midweek service, Announce the launch of your blog.

Tell your congregation that you have given them another platform to a wealth of spiritual information and upliftment.

Promote it on social media, If you have seen AdSense ads on religion, they are on point.

Church members are ignorant. They will click those ads thinking is prayer point.

One pitfall to avoid, Never talk about morality, that is one topic 90% of church people don't want to hear.

You can lose your audience, So focus on prosperity, good health, financial freedom etc.

You can also use the blog to sell your product eg, audio and video church programmes.
