Discover A New Way To Set Up and Manage Your Online Business Ventures Without Paying A Dime To Any Guru

Attention to All Technically Challenged Business Owners and Online Business Newbies

If you have taken your offline business to the internet, you are new to internet marketing or you have an existing internet business and you have technical challenges with specific aspects of your online business, then you already know how challenging it is to keep up with the exotic expert and guru fees you have to pay to solve those problems – each time.

When you begin an online business, the things you need to learn are many and very technical. Those who know these things charge outrageous tutorial fees to teach you. The one-day-seminars that are organized to teach these things are not in-depth enough to get you started and the most annoying part is when you decide to reduce your training expenses by going for ebooks that teach you how to do these technical things, you discover that the books are not well written and leave you more confused than ever.

A few years back when people like Efe Imiren and I began our online businesses, just like you did today, we woke up every day not knowing how to solve one technical challenge to another. Just like you, we faced simple online business challenges like:

>> How to upload your ebooks so that your paid customers can download

>> How to build simple websites to market your ideas, ebooks and services Or you don't know how to install simple auto responders on your website

>> And you don't know how to use blogs to market your business, websites and ideas

The fact is, putting your business and ideas on the internet involves a lot of technical processes and unless you have a mentor who is ready to baby-sit you in a mentoring class, you are going to waste weeks, months and even years trying to figure out each process.

Sometimes like you, we even get these processes through trial and error and then forget it the very next minute! To solve this problem, every time Efe Imiren completed a successful technical process in her online business she produced step by step videos that decode and explained the process so that she can watch the video whenever the process is forgotten. I called these videos ProcessDVDs. They decode and simplify online business processes.

Efe Imiren has said continuously over years in doing business on the internet, "these videos became my number one reference library anytime I needed to do something technical on the internet! In no time, my online business became easier and more profitable for me. I even gave some of these videos to some of my friends who operate online businesses and they loved it because the videos showed them step by step how to do simple online technical things and now, they are free from paying expensive expert fees".

Imagine you get an idea at 2am in the morning, and you need your idea to be live on the internet before 8am in the morning when people resume to work, how do you wake up your IT guy at 2am in the morning without annoying him and incurring an expensive bill?

Click here now to visit Efe Imirens' ProcessDVD Page to see how you can start managing your own online business ventures without laboring to pay expensive guru bills.

Caller Tunes Business: How To Set It Up and Make Money From It

“Finally… A Professional and EASY Way To PROFIT From GSM Shortcodes…”

Caller Tunes Business simply involves setting up a service that allows other people to download and assign a variety of  sound heard when their friends, colleagues and family members call their gsm number with a tune of their choice.
What is a Caller Tune?
Caller Tunes is the personalized ring back service that enables you change the conventional "ring ring" sound heard when your friends, colleagues and family members call you with a tune of your choice. Caller Tunes entertains your callers with a selected music each time your phone rings. You can get it from VAS providers or sites that offer premium caller tunes services in Nigeria. You can not get it directly from Mtn, Glo, etc
The airtime billing of people that send a text to a caller tune code like in the case of mtn '4100' is different from the way they are billed when they text gsm numbers. Caller tunez billing is also different from shortcode billing system. Unlike shortcode that have the following tariff, N30, N50, N100. Caller tune has N50 tariff per download monthly. The tariff is the airtime value that will be deducted whenever anyone respond to the caller tune code.
I believe you now have a detailed understand of what caller tune is all about. Though that is not the catch of today's post. The major thing is for you to discover how to make huge money from the caller tune service. You will soon find out.
Get Into The Caller Tunes Business
Caller Tunes Business simply involves setting up a service that allows other people to download and assign a variety of  sound heard when their friends, colleagues and family members dial their gsm number with a tune of their choice. People that download and assign a particular sound to replace the conventional "ring ring" sound are billed automatically by their network provider and you the promoter of that tune get your own share of it.
The voice of religious leaders, top artiste, activist, comedians, gospel singers are examples of tunes that are been assigned as Caller Tunes. You can't imagine the response you will get if you effectively promote the songs of top artiste like Davido, 2 Face etc. their raving fans will gladly throw away their N50 to you while creating a unique identity for themselves.
If you set up a caller tunez service, you can make money in partnership with the mobile network operators, while you also have access to the phone numbers of the caller tune subscribers for other marketing purposes.

From the above image, the song code is '046371' and while the network caller tune code is 4100 (MTN). The various supported mobile network operators do have their unique caller tune codes.
How much can I make from Caller Tunez Business in Nigeria?
The N50 airtime value is what you share with the network providers. So whenever someone downloads the song N50 is deducted from his/her airtime.
It is a volume based business. Meaning you have to get a lot of people to be downloading your caller tune. The more people download the caller tune the more money you accumulate.
How much you make from the caller tune depends on the agreed sharing percentage between you and the mobile operators as prevented by the VAS provider. Normally, the MNO's takes more if the song is not an hit track or not done by a popular artist. You get a higher percentage for songs done by top artiste like 2 faceDavidoIyanya etc because such tunes attract high traffic  based on large fans base.
Once a gsm user responds to your caller tune promotion, lets say with an MTN number using the song AYE by Davido for example. The person text "030731" to 4100. MTN will deduct the downloading fee of N50 immediately.
Unlike shortcode and other mobile content services where VAS providers have  a user interface to provide it's client with real time logs. For Caller Tunes, the telecoms themselves provides a monthly report for every tunes to the VAS providers and then the vas providers in turn send the report to it's clients.
No fears, because the payment is made straight to the bank details filled in the contract document which is usually done by the caller tune promoter.
Supported Networks
These are the three major networks whose users are crazily responding to the caller tune subscription.
The number of people that respond to your caller tune, will determine how much you make from the business.
How To Make Money From The Caller Tune Services In Nigeria
Firstly, you have to get your caller tune set up.
- Acquire an authorization letter from the owner of the song permitting you to distribute it's song as a caller tune.
- Proceed to a VAS provider to set up the tune for you by uploading the song and sharing code for the various operators with you.
The authorization letter can be received directly from the artiste. If it is an artiste you know personally then you can approach him but for big stars you are advised to approach the record label. Approaching the record label make the process easier as you can walk into their office at anytime. Unlike to meet with Davido, Tu face etc.
Some artiste will easily issue you the letter because they know you are also promoting them while some will demand for royalty.
If it is a religious leader's voice then you have to visit the church office and discuss your proposal to distribute it as a claler tune with them. The authorization letter will be written on the ministry letter headed paper stating it's permission to you.
Secondly, you need to get people to download the tune. The more people download the tune the more money you rake into your account. As I said earlier it's a game of volume. Imagine all the members of a particular church like any of these leading ministries whose Leaders voice are highly respected downloading the tune monthly…REAL MONEY!
You can promote your caller tune by flyers, radio jingle, banner ads on high traffic websites and blogs. For some time someone has been promoting a caller tune on lindaikeji's blog. BulkSMS is also a great way to promote your caller tune. But then you need to buy a valid gsm database and use bulk sms sites to promote your caller tune.
Here is a typical sms campaign you can use to promote you caller tune
"There is a power in the spoken words. Download the prophecy of Bishop xxxx as your caller tune n stay blessed. Text "xxxx" to 4100"
Common religious caller tunes people crazily respond to are voice of Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor Adebayo, Pastor Chris etc.
The campaign above can rake in good income from a large number of mobile phone users. A lot of people will respond to such bulksms promotion leading to maximum return on investment (ROI). Other tunes with high conversion are Top Artiste songs, Motivationals etc.
Where To get a Caller tune set up for your in Nigeria
If you are ready to get your caller tune now, go to
You can trust them for premium caller tunes and shortcode set up.

Why publish a book for "beginners"?

After looking back through the 500+ posts here on Blogger Buster, I realised there was very little information for those completely new to the platform. Blogger's help site is very extensive, yet there is no single page or downloadable file available to help those who have just started (or would like to begin using) this service.

So I decided to put a little time into explaining the very basics of using Blogger in much the same way as I explain more complicated tutorials on this site - using step-by-step instructions and helpful screenshots. I hope this ebook will be useful for those starting their first blog with Blogger, and those who may not have used the platform in a while and are unfamiliar with the new Blogger interface.

  • You may not offer this ebook for download on your own site
  • This ebook must no be used for commercial purposes - it cannot be resold, published in print or provided under any type of commercial license
Feel free to share offline with family or friends, or link to this page if you think your readers would like to download a copy for themselves.

The PDF version of this ebook will always remain free to download here on Blogger Buster, though (hopefully) it will soon be available in other formats for which there may be a small fee. 

I'm also in the process of writing two more books about Blogger (details to be released soon) and feel it's in my best interests to retain copyright of this book in case sections are referenced in these future works.

We Compare iPhone 5S and iPhone 6: Is It Worth Upgrading?

We Compare iPhone 5S and iPhone 6: Is It Worth Upgrading?

iphone2If you own an iPhone 5S, you may be wondering whether it's time to upgrade to the new iPhone 6. In this article, we compare the two generations of Apple smartphones to help you decide whether to upgrade or not.


The 2014 iPhone 6 is 6.8mm thick, while the iPhone 5S is 7.6mm thick. The iPhone 6 has curvier lines and does not have the angular edges of the iPhone 5S. It is also slimmer compared to the old model.

The iPhone 6 has a larger screen, and both units have hardened glass fronts and aluminum backs. Both have TouchID sensors and the iPhone 6 has the extra hardware feature of NFC, which enables secure wireless payments with the new Apple Pay mobile payment system that will be used by thousands of stores in the U.S.


The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch display compared to the iPhone 5S' 4-inch display. Its screen resolution is sharper at 1334 x 750 pixels, compared to the iPhone 5S' 1136 x 640 pixels.

Both units use the standard iPhone IPS LCD screens and look great generally. They have 326ppi displays, so you will have a better experience playing games and browsing on the iPhone 6's larger display.


The camera features are almost the same on both phones. Apple says the iPhone 6 has a new sensor, but there is no evidence of radical improvement in image quality. But the iPhone 6 does have a new element in the phase detection autofocus that is used in many sophisticated cameras for faster focusing.

The iPhone 6 allows in 81 percent more light which facilitates better shots. It caters to selfie addicts by including a burst mode and one-shot HDR.



The iPhone 6's CPU is 20 percent faster and its GPU is 50 percent faster. This means you will get better visual effects while gaming on it. The new model hosts an advanced generation processor named the Apple A8 that is an improvement over the Apple A7 from iPhone 5S. The iPhone 6 also has tinier transistors that make its CPU more efficient and run cooler. Thus, the new model offers a solid CPU upgrade over the older iPhone 5S.

Battery Life

The iPhone 6 offers an improvement in battery life as it provides 11 hours of browsing and video playback compared to the iPhone 5S' 10 hours. The slimmer design of the iPhone 6 has led to the increase in battery life. But it may be noted that the even the iPhone 6's extended battery life is not that great as the best models from LG and Sony offer browsing and video playback hours well into the teens.


You can use the iPhone 6 to store plenty of music and videos as it has a model that offers 128 GB of storage. You can choose between the iPhone 6's 16 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB models, while the iPhone 5S offers 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB units. Memory on both phones remains the same at 1 GB of RAM.


The iPhone 6 is available from $199 onwards, while the iPhone 5S is sold from $99 onwards.


The iPhone 6 has a few improved features that can enthuse those who wish to upgrade. The screen is bigger and offers a more entertaining experience for gamers. Other compelling new features are the Apple Pay secure payment system as well as extra storage. We hope this comparison article has informed you about the specifications and features of both the iPhone 5S and the new iPhone 6 to help you make an educated decision.


Planning To Buy A Gaming Console? Compare Xbox One and PS4

Planning To Buy A Gaming Console? Compare Xbox One and PS4

consolesSony's PS4 and Microsoft's Xbox One have been around for almost a year, and have been upgraded during that period with new features and software updates. The PS4 is regularly sold out, while Microsoft has improved its console with a range of hardware bundles.

Sony has sold about eight million systems, while Microsoft has shipped five million pieces to stores. Both consoles cost the same at $399.99 but Microsoft has added more games that can only be played on Xbox. We help you choose the right gaming console by comparing their features and special aspects.

Hardware Design


Xbox One measures 13.5 in x 10.4 in x 3.2 in and the console has vents that ensure it does not overheat. It is a big device that is larger than most others in the market.

PS4 has a stylish design and a recognizable angular shape. The console is half-gloss, half-matte and is slimmer at 10.8 in x 12 in x 2. Therefore, the PS4 can fit into your media cabinet more easily. It is also lighter at 2.75 kg compared to Xbox One's hefty 3.56 kg.

The ports on the PS4 can be hidden, though this would make it more difficult to plug in cables. For wireless connectivity, PS4 offers 802.11 WiFi bands b/g/n and gigabit Ethernet. Xbox One offers all those features plus the 802.11a band, which is older. PS4's connections are limited to 2.4GHz, while Xbox One supports the 2.4 GHz as well as the latest 5GHz channels which can be used with dual band routers.

Both consoles host 500GB hard drives, but PS4 offers the added advantage of allowing replaceable internal drives. The Xbox One's drive cannot be replaced as this would void the warranty. A recent update to the Xbox One enables users to add external storage to the console. But the drive should be at least 256GB and USB 3.0. Sony does not support external storage.

Games on Both Consoles


Let us now take a look at the factor that matters most on a gaming console: its games. Exclusives are the most important thing when we compare the PS4 and Xbox One because many popular games like Far Cry 4, The Witcher 3, and Destiny will be available on both formats.

When it comes to exclusive games, Xbox One's Titanfall is the biggest. There are also Xbox 360 and Windows PC versions of this multi-player game but none for PS4. Titanfall has been updated with additional features, new game modes, and technical tweaks to enhance its appeal.

On the PS4, the biggest exclusive game is Infamous: Second Son. This single-player game offers great action and stunning particle effects. The console has also released The Last of Us Remastered, an updated version of the exclusive hit game for PS3.

Gamers can look forward to the release of the social racing game Driveclub on the PS4 in October 2014. Driveclub's competitor on Xbox One is Forza Horizon 2. Xbox One's arsenal of 2014 exclusives includes Sunset Overdrive and the updated Halo series of games. To sum up, Titanfall is the blockbuster on Xbox One, while the PS4 is slightly ahead when it comes to multi-format games.


Xbox One is a versatile next-generation console that can be used for live TV, Skype, and media streaming, apart from games of course. The PS4 is simpler, but more than fulfills its promises. It also offers superior graphics performance.

The PS4 is ahead on technical parameters and is recommended for serious gamers. If you want to play games from the biggest franchises like Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, and Destiny, choose the PS4. On its part, Xbox One scores with its top quality online service and multimedia capabilities.

We hope our comparison has updated you on the games and features on both consoles to help you make the right choice if you are thinking of gifting a gaming console this festive season.


10 Largest Companies In The World: China Takes The Top 3 Spots

10 Largest Companies In The World: China Takes The Top 3 Spots

There are quite a few predictions that surfaced decades ago that China will become a superpower and will surpass the United States as the world's strongest economy in the immediate future. Those predictions are now becoming a reality.

Regarded in the past as a poor nation, China is still ranked as one of the countries with the highest poverty rate in the world. But that is because China's population is so large and its area is so massive that wealth is not evenly distributed and many of its regions are not experiencing industrial and economical boom as compared to its flourishing provinces and cities.

But there is no doubt that China is rich. In fact, in the most recent listing of the world's 10 largest companies by Forbes, five Chinese companies have entered the rankings. Three of them now sitting at the very top. The position on the list is determined based on four factors: revenues, profits, assets and market value. And to kick off this list is a Chinese company called…

#10 PetroChina – $202 billion

#8 Wells Fargo – $261.4 billion

Wells Fargo is one United States' oldest financial company, with roots tracing to the California gold rush in 1849. Originally founded as a transportation company, Wells and Fargo soon ventured into the financial industry. The current Wells Fargo is the result of a merger between the original Wells and Fargo company and the Minneapolis-based Norwest Corporation back in 1998. John Stumpf currently sits as the company's CEO, Chairman, and President. Wells Fargo now has huge interests in the financing business, with engagements in commercial banking, foreign currency exchange, private equity, and wealth management to name a few. The Wells Fargo headquarters are found in San Francisco, California.

#7 General Electric – $259.6 billion


Founded by Thomas Edison and a few investors back in 1892, General Electric business operations are focused on four major areas – Energy, Technology Infrastructure, Capital Finance, and Consumer and Industrial.

10 Most Expensive Photographs In The World: Images Worth Millions

10 Most Expensive Photographs In The World: Images Worth Millions

photosAlmost anyone these days can take tons of tphotos using a smartphone or a tablet, so our modern culture might not be paying too much attention to photographs compared to fame they reveived even a few decades ago. Today tablets and smartphones can take breathtaking pictures of outstanding quality; thus they are always present in most events, family reunions and vacations.

However, photography is still an art—and based on the prices of some photos, it can even be a very pricey craft. Would you pay, for example, $100,000 for a single photo? How about a million dollars for one picture? Here is a list of the priciest photographs ever sold in the world, getting millions of dollars in various auctions through the years.

10. Billy the Kid (1880) – $2.3 million

Photographer: Unkown


One of the most popular and costliest pictures of all time is this iconic photo of a young and famous outlaw who resided in the American West. This is the only known photo of Billy the Kid, who had murdered about 20 men even before he had reached the age of 21. He became notorious during his short but very busy career as a gunslinger and an outlaw.

Many film aficionados may have attached the face of Hollywood actor Emilio Estevez to this legendary outlaw because of the former's Young Guns films. However, the real outlaw will forever be immortalized by this photo taken by an anonymous photographer in 1880. The price for this photo? $2.3 million.

9. Untitled #153 (1985) – $2.7 million

Photographer: Cindy Sherman


A photograph that has been renowned by many as a masterpiece, Untitled 153 is a haunting portrait that could be mistaken for an image straight from a crime scene.

8. The Pond/Moonlight (1904) – $2.9 million

Photographer: Edward Steichen


The Pond/Moonlight is a photograph taken by by Edward Steichen in the State of New York in 1904. This well-known and unique photo shows a forest sitting across from a pond, with the moon just barely visible through the trees.

The Pond is so popular by aficionados in the photography world, not just because it is among the first color photographs; it is also among the first color photos that were widely distributed. It is also very prominent for its uniqueness. Only three versions of this photo exist; no wonder why the value of each photo greatly increased. One of the three versions got sold for a whopping $2.9 million back in 2006. At that time, it was the most expensive photo, although other photos have been bought since then with much higher prices. It is still not known how costly the other versions will be, but it is most likely they will be sold at much higher prices (both photos are currently being held in a museum).

7. Los Angeles (1998) – $2.9 million

Photographer: Andreas Gursky


This is something that could have come out of a sci-fi film. The image taken by famed photographer Andreas Gursky, showing the grid-like outstanding lightning patters of Los Angeles, was bought for a mind-numbing price of 2.9 million dollars.

6. 99 Cent II, Diptychon (2001) – $3.3 million

Photographer: Andreas Gursky


Gursky has another of his photos on this list. In fact, two photos from this famous photographer are in the sixth spot. Both photos show a supermarket of various goods being sold, but the photographer heavily modified both works. Both works, which are very expensive, measured almost seven by 11 feet.

The first, which he called 99 Cent II, was the first photo to have been sold for more than three million dollars back in 2007.

5. Untitled (Cowboy)(1989) – $3.4 million

Photographer: Richard Prince


An unknown cowboy was photographed in action, as he uses his rope to catch a horse. The photo, complete with an amazing backdrop of a clear bright sky and disheveled clouds, earned famous photographer Richard Prince a cool 3.4 million dollars.

4. Dead Troops Talk (1992) – $3.7 million

Photographer: Jeff Wall


The photograph, named Dead Troops Talk and taken by photographer Jeff Wall back in 1992 is unique and much talked about as it has been staged. Wall had been also known for previous photo setups. For this picture, Wall chose to depict the grisly ambush of a Russian contingent during the 1988 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. He set up a number of "dead soldiers" to make them appear as if they are talking, possibly to have statement echoing Wall's view about the invasion of Afghanistan. Wall's unique and creative ideas reflected in the photo were among the biggest reasons why this portrait got 3.7 million dollars at an auction.

1. Rhein II (1999) – $4.3 million

Photographer: Andreas Gursky

Trumping the record set by photographer Cindy Sherman in 2011, Andreas Gursky cements his stellar status atop this very exclusive group of photographers with his amazing photograph of the Rhine River: the fourth photo he has taken on this list, purchased for 4.3 million dollars in 2011.

Rhein II is now considered the priciest photograph of all time. There were some issues regarding the photo, which measures 73 by 143 inches, because it was heavily modified. In the original photo, there were some people and a building, which Gursky decided to digitally remove so that his photo will have a more natural view of the river.
