Make Real Money From Home

"Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming." ~ Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Enterprises

by Dana R. Arevalo

Where there is a will there's a way....
Welcome. Hope everyone is well.  I did not want to visit until I had some solid news to announce.  I have been trying some survey sites and small advertisements to make money. I am taking the trial and error out for you.  Many have false ideas of what it takes to work from home.  While there are several work from home sites that are not true and valid, there are many that do work.  I have actively been using the two methods that I am going to discuss today. 
One main thing to remember is that you are not going to get rich quick.  They are  however, a good source of supplemental income.  I utilize the survey money for gifts and to save for a rainy day. 
Opportunity One:  Blogsvertise is a great starting point.  You are assigned advertisements based upon your Google page rank.  A page rank of 2 will land you advertising jobs for at least $10.00 per advertisement.  It takes approximately 1/2 hour to write the advertisement which you are required to do so in your own words.  For the month of September I made approximately $75.00 with blogsvertise.   From a scale from 1 to 10.  I rate Blogverstise a 9+! 
It is also a great way to advertise.  See below.

Opportunity Two:  Is from Inbox dollars.  I recently started Inbox dollars.  They are truly a wonderful site.  In one month I was paid approximately $45.00 just for doing things that I needed to do.  For example, I signed up to get an audio book which was needed for a project.  The audio book was free along with a free trial period.  You must be savvy and creative remember to cancel the membership if you do not want to keep it before you are charged.  One could also play games, use coupons for credit,  and watch videos!  Not thousands but the money does add up.  See below.

Site Maps Made Easy

"Reputations are made by searching for things that can't be done and doing them" ~ Frank Tyger

by Dana R. Arevalo, MBA

Welcome.   I had to put the 10K challenge on  hold for now, however, I am still learning a lot about SEO (search engine optimization).  Just to give you some reassurance, the 10K challenge is not a bad program.   I am reserving my conversation about the 10K challenge for another day.

Today's focus is site-maps.  If you do not have one, today is your lucky day.  I spent a good part of the afternoon the other day trying to determine how to build one for Google's "Blogger".  Old adage:  If at first you don't succeed try try again! When I set out to do something it truly bothers me if I cannot find a solution so I kept on until I found it!  

Are site maps beneficial?  From what I have witnessed on my fitness blog, I am going to make a "temporary" decision and say yes they help.  I have noticed an increase in traffic the day that I added the site map.  Being, that I have only had one for a couple of days, I cannot make a permanent decision yet.  However, all of the information that I have found, points in the direction of yes - one should create a SITE-MAP.  Basically, a site map helps search engines find you!  Read more about site maps here

Here in lies the issue, a site-map must be added to a web-site's root directory.  If you do not have access to the root directory you will become frustrated trying to find an alternative.  Look no further.  After many attempts, I found this source that has been the most relevant and valid for individuals with Blogger.  Follow the directions step by step and it truly works.  

Two other great sites that helps build a site-map (for those without Blogger) are XML Site-maps and Free Site Map Generator.

Please share your thoughts, ideas, and tips with us.  Also, should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via

Have a productive day!

Safelists - my TOP pick

"Where there is a will, there is a way. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, anything, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Pry the door open, if need be, wedge your foot in that door and keep it open." ~ P. Kael

Top Choice SafeList
by Dana Arevalo

I have heard of email marketing prior to joining the 10K challenge.  I, however, was not sure how it was performed.  I am still new to safelists but have found one that is fairly effective.  Some believe safelists are the key to effective and massive Internet marketing.

The members agree to share emails amongst each other.  The goal is to begin to profit from one another.  Most have free and paid memberships.  Currently, I have the free memberships.  When joining they do not ask for any information besides an email address!  The lists are "safe"and individuals DO open your advertisements. 

 While I am still evaluating the 10K challenge and safelists in general.  I have found Free SafeList Mailer the most effective this far.  At first the whole concept could be a bit overwhelming however, if you join the 10K challenge with me, I promise to share my methods with you. 

Try safe lists for any type of business, blogs, email or message that you would like to promote.  It's free and worth the try!  Click below to learn more.  If you would like to speak with me in person about the 10K challenge email me at

What Motivates You?

"Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity." ~ Bo Bennett 
In order to be completely successful one has to have a purpose to reach the end result.  Something that motivates them to get there.  You cannot just blindly get involved in something without a plan.  Today, first we will discuss the 10K challenge and short links. 

I am still thoroughly enjoying the 10K challenge program.  So far everything that I have researched makes sense.  Furthermore, the things that I was slightly hesitant about or had questions about had answers the next training day.  For example, we are doing a lot of work with safe lists.  Safe lists are a form of advertisement and marketing that reach thousands of people.  I receive emails from safe lists, as well, it  is part of the business.  I was pondering over how to open everything. That would be way too time consuming and completely not worth it.  I do not have time to click on ads all day long.  I was relieved to find out that this was not the case.  The 10K challenge teaches you step by step the most effective ways to market your business.  The best part about it is that they introduced a URL shortening service that tracks visits to your URL.  The reason for this is so that we know which safe lists are the most effective - very clever I must say. 

Today involved the development and distribution of ads and most importantly - what motivates us.  We were asked to figure out why we decided to join the 10K.  What are our goals and our true motivation.  I spent some time visualizing what I truly wanted out of the experience. They also taught us to make it a point to remember very often why we were participating in this opportunity. Having a reason or goal allows one to be way more focused and dedicated to it's outcome.  I look forward to teaching you much more about the 10K in the coming days. 

Thank you for visiting. 

Warm Regards,

Day 3 Looks Promising

I wish I can brag today that I have started to make money, but I haven't. We all know however, looks can be deceiving. Any work from home opportunity or business opportunity that seems unrealistic or seems to good to be true - is!

The 10K challenge is not too good to be true. One must work for it to work. I joined because I see it's potential and who would pass up an offer that pays for itself? I hope you will consider joining me in this venture. If you don't see it's potential, you can just simply delete your account.

While I am only on day 3, I am conducting extensive research on the tools the system is telling me to utilize. The 10k challenge is not a get rich quick scheme. What I believe happens is that you receive money based upon advertisements. These advertisements reach hundreds of people. I in no way want to mislead you. I am not able to write a post everyday, however if you want to experience this adventure with me, please email me at

Remember, no money, no obligations, you just have to follow a daily to do list of tasks with a 5 minute training video.

I have always been slightly impatient, so I have contacted my sponsor and they were extremely helpful in answering all of my questions. I am ahead of the game because I am researching safe lists. That is the tool we are utilizing presently. Not all safe lists are helpful therefore I am experimenting to tell you which ones are and which ones are not. If you join with me, I will be your personal sponsor and mentor. You will be getting an added bonus with me because I am investigating this entire system inside and out.

I have nothing to hide or lose. I want to make some extra money and I want to share the technique with others if there is potential. I like it very much so far.

Thank you for stopping in. Enjoy today, make it count!

Warm Regards,

Welcome to my Newest Blog

by Dana Arevalo, MBA 

Hello & Welcome.  Join me in my new venture.  I have been blogging for a little over one year and truly love it.  I enjoy sharing my ideas and research with others.  Who am I?  A well-educated down to earth individual that loves to help others.  Before we leap into a dead-end opportunity we must thoroughly research it.  The first thing that I generally do is a massive search through Google and sites such as Rip-Off Report and the like.

The entire reason I started this blog was to review work-from home opportunities and at the same time help others find valid opportunities.  Just two days ago I was given the opportunity to try something called the 10K challenge.  At first, I thought it was a fitness challenge.  I wouldn't even call it an investment, I consider it an opportunity.  I am taking it apart to be sure I am on the right path.  I am generally very skeptical about work from home opportunities that promise you the world.  I am also all about for what seems to good to be true - generally is.

With this program, however, I see the potential.  As I learn, you can learn with me.  What I like the most about this opportunity is that it is completely free for the first 30 days and then the investment is solely $25.00 (which is said to pay for itself).  I also could not find one negative thing about the 10K challenge.   

If anyone knows anything negative about this program, please share here. 

If you would like more information and want to try the challenge with me visit the site at 10K Challenge

My next post is going to be about safe-lists. 

Hope this information was beneficial.
