New ebook Teaches You How To Make & Launch Insanely Simple “Hyper-Casual” Websites That 
Crush The App Store for Adverts !

Hi There, My name is abiel john balogun.

I’m the Founder and CEO of a Desktop & Mobile Website business with more than 65,000,000 visits and visits and clicks

I’ve decided to put everything I’ve learned into a brand new eebook that will show you exactly how to create a Website business from scratch... even if like me you are NOT a programmer.

If you’ve ever wanted to create a mobile Websites
before (or even apps), then you will not want to
pass this ebook by.

As you'll see, there is nothing else like it out
there.

But before we continue I have a warning:
I am going to need you to NOT say 5 words.

(Please, for the love of God, don’t do this while
reading this letter.)

Every time I tell someone I own an app company I hear these same 5 words.

Every. Single. Time.

The problem is, it’s the absolute WORST way to get started with apps.

Do you know what these words are?

“I have an app idea!”

That's what I constantly hear and guess what? 99.99% of the ideas I'm told are terrible.

Seriously.

It’s not their fault, and I’m not trying to be rude… but most people’s app ideas completely over complicate what REALLY works. And what’s worse, when people go out and create that “genius app idea” they end up going broke.

The thing is, it's not even about the app idea. Not in the way people think.

“So what DOES work?“

Well, it’s pretty simple really. It's what the whole ebook is about.

It’s exactly what we do, and it’s not exactly a secret (though there is a lot going on behind the scenes, especially in the marketing which you’ll see on page 92 of the ebook).

Let me give you a hint:

Take one look at the app store and you’ll notice a weird trend immediately.

You’ll notice the top of the app store is absolutely littered with those super simple Websites that are usually minimally designed, annoying as hell to play… but you can’t put them down.

We make those Websites.

A lot of them.

You might have even played some of our Websites. (We've had 8 Websites break the Top 25 of the App Store).

We’ve made top Websites like The Line Zen, The Pit, Bounce, Phases, Endless Sky, Jump Pack, Blue Edge, Wall Switch and even huge celebrity Websites like Bruce Lee: Dragon Run.

These Websites are called Hyper-casual Websites,
and they absolutely rule the app store.

And if you think about it, this is pretty insane. These Websites are dead simple.

I know this first hand, as I created one of the very first
hyper-casual Websites ever on the app store.

It was called Phases (pictured), I made it in 2014, it broke
the Top 25 of the app store and has more than 6,000,000
visits and clicks.

As you can see, it's not that complicated looking. Hell, I made it by myself in only two weeks (and I can't code).

Creating something like this is definitely not near as hard as a social Website or, god forbid, a console Website.

Right now marks a very strange time in the gaming industry, when people can make millions with simple Websites they create themselves.

That has never happened before, and honestly, probably won't again.

The Hyper-Casual Rocket Ship

Websites are bigger than ever, hyper-casual is taking over, and the whole thing is JUST BEGINNING with no signs of slowing
down.

In fact, hyper-casual is just now starting
to make headlines (this article shown
here is from June 2018).

Throughout the app store’s history,
we’ve seen very few explosions like this.

I can tell you first hand, we’re very early
and nearing the initial growth stage.

Now is the perfect time to get involved. It’s before the true growth phase.

We're at that early part when you just start seeing news articles and chatter around the office.

This is like seeing a news article in 2013 talking about Bitcoin breaking $100.

Wish you would have taken action back then?

Yeh, so do I, but at least I didn't miss this one. Making Websites is more fun than staring at bitcoin charts anyway ;)

So What’s This ebook All About?

The digital ebook is called The Hyper-Casual Bible: How to conceive, create, and launch Hyper-casual Websites to the top of the App Store.

First off, you will not find this ebook on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or
anywhere else.

In fact, you won’t find a SINGLE ebook about hyper-casual on
Amazon.

I just looked, not one ebook has been authored on the subject. Such is
life when you’re still in the “introduction” phase of a new trend.

When we hit the growth phase, which will be soon… ebooks will start
surfacing, but they won’t be written by someone that has 65,000,000
visits and clicks in the hyper-casual market… for all the reasons I mentioned above.

They’ll be written from people trying to ride the wave, not from founders who know what they're doing.

Inside this ebook, I show you everything.

How I started my first Website, how I came up with Website ideas, created the Websites without coding and consistently get them to the top of the app store.

That last part — turning these Websites into hits — is probably the most important part. You’ll see on page 10 that I’ve tried everything, and that this one particular thing really stuck.

(Hint: I’m only focusing on this one thing for marketing now, and this alone has generated over 7 figures of revenue in our Websites.)

The ebook is 110 pages long and broken down into 4 major sections: The Idea, The Build, The Website and The Launch.

How to come up with killer Website ideas for hyper-casual that can make it to the top of the charts (This is where you start. It's on page 14)

Creating Websites with wide demographics in mind (So important... on page 19)

How to build Websites without writing a single line of code (I’ll show you both how to use drag and drop software and also another, arguably easier way, on page 57)

How to make your Website for free (literally spend nothing, can’t beat that… I go into detail about this on page 45 in the creation chapter)

Actionable tips and tricks to make your own art… even if you’re not an artist (I created all the art in our hit Websites like Phases and The Line Zen, and I’m far from an artist. Page 59)

The 5 rules you absolutely can’t break if you want to have success with hyper-casual Websites (number 3 is the most important, it’s about the “size” and it’s not how big your app is… see that on page 77)

How to get millions of visits and clicks without paying a single penny (seriously, we spend literally nothing on our Websites… more on page 105)

Why App Store Optimization (ASO) is dead and focusing solely on keywords is a terrible strategy (Page 100)

The one type of Website you seriously should never make (why is this always people’s first choice?!… Page 9)

How to balance the line between original ideas and proven ideas (Page 22)

Our model and improve system we use to create repeatable success (This is how we got 8 Websites to break the Top 25… Super important. On Page 27)

How to get signed to top tier publishers like Ketchapp, Voodoo and Fortafy (We work with all of them and signed more Websites to Ketchapp than any other developer… Page 108)

The 10 biggest app launching mistakes we consistently see newbies making (avoid these and be very careful taking advice from blogs… these issues pop-up on them constantly. Page 94)

The difference between Surprise & Wonder, and why both are required in perfect balance if you want a hit Website (pages 87-88)

Why you should never make a hyper-casual Website in landscape mode (this is obvious once you know it, but it took me forever to figure out… page 99)

The big reason why totally new ideas can come back to haunt you, and how to fix it by still releasing unique Websites. (Page 30).

The weird trick that got me my first 1,000,000 visits and clicks (See that on Page 7… it’s how I got my start)

The even weirder trick that got me the next 10,000,000 (Page 104… this one was the big turn around for me)

The free traffic source we now use that helped us get more visits and clicks in the last 2 years than the previous 5 years combined (Page 106)

And that’s just scratching the surface…
You’ll learn everything you need to know about building hyper-casual Websites, including:

It would take all day for me to type out all the bullet points from this ebook.

It’s a complete collection of actionable systems and proccesses on every aspect of my hyper-casual Website business.

After Reading This You Will Be A
Hyper-Casual Website Expert

Seriously, I mean it.

I can’t guarantee you’ll go make a Website (I mean, only you can know that), but you WILL be an expert if you read this ebook.

You’ll know more about the creation, marketing, and launch of hyper-casual Websites than nearly anyone on the planet. You’ll know more than journalist, Website developers and even most Website publishers.

Why?

Because it’s so new that no one really knows what they’re doing except a few of us.

You know who we are.

You are constantly seeing and playing our Websites in the app store.

This ebook has everything you need to know
to crush it…

…and I can’t wait to send it to you.

As for the price, I don’t really care about changing a lot for this.

As I said above, it already benefits me in other ways to help people learn how to crush it in the app store. So I’m just here to get the word out.

Most ebooks I buy on Amazon are about $14, but they’re also a long read.

This is not.

This is a quick read.

You can nail through it in an afternoon or two easy, and I made it like that on purpose.

As you’ll see, I just present the facts in this thing. I’m not here to include a ton of filler so you feel like “you got your money’s worth”.

Instead, I just want to give you the important stuff, that you can use to build something killer right now.

That’s it.

Here’s What To Do Next

The cost of the ebook is only $5.99.

I picked that amount out of thin air.

I’m only going to sell it on this website, and you can download it immediately after purchase.

If you are interested in hyper-casual Websites, then click here to order now:

So that’s it.

If you want to get involved in Websites, and like me you don’t know how to code (or you do and still want to know how to get apps to the top of the app store), then this ebook is probably for you.

SEND ME THE ebook
Oh Yeah… One More Thing

I’m probably going to lose money advertising this.

Sad but true.

It’s hard to break even on a $5.99 sale… so I have no clue how long I will keep this available.

(Truth is, I’m nearly certain I’ll lose money promoting the ad, but I’m hoping to make it up in sales of our software)

Will it work?

Who knows.

I guess if you see ads still running in a few weeks the answer will be yes, but I will be honest: there is a damn good chance I will be shutting this down sooner rather than later.

So if you are interested, I would jump on this while it’s here.

OK, thanks guys.

Appreciate you reading and regardless if you buy this or not, I hope you have a blast building a Website business.

It’s seriously the coolest thing ever.

Take Care,

abiel john balogun

TL;DR - If you’re like me and probably don't read all this stuff and just scroll to the bottom... then let me give you a quick breakdown.

I make Hypercasual Websites

I’m selling it for 5 bucks

IS THIS PORN ?  NO ? 

 

Google has Made Our Website into Dangerous Malware Site for Exposing Them   tweeterest.com has no malware but all of a sudden google is reporting us ! 

LONDON: An attractive teacher at a private school is at the centre of a sex storm after pupils spotted her in a raunchy video.

The £7,000-a-year Stockport Grammar, in Greater Manchester, is investigating allegations that English teacher Sarah Green appeared in a sexually explicit internet ad before working at the school.

Several parents of pupils have complained about her appearance in the video, which is currently on YouTube and other websites and has been circulating among their children. The video, for Scruffs workwear, lasts almost two minutes and shows three simulated sex scene.

Cramer blasts Abercrombie ads as ‘soft porn’

 

Responding to an analyst downgrade of Abercrombie & Fitch, Jim Cramer blasted the clothing retailer's ads featuring "scantily-clad" teens as "soft porn" and said he's tired of them.

"If I want to buy a six-pack, the heck with it, I'm going to buy a Coors Light. ... Six packs belong in beer, not in advertising. I look at their advertising and I say, jeez, this is like between 'Game of Thrones' and this, surrounded by pornography, surrounded by soft porn."

He added that he thinks "a lot of the video problems on the Internet are advertisers don't want to be matched up against porn. It comes out everywhere."

Some Time Ago 

—By CNBC.com.

Is facebook turning into a site you hate to love or is it a love to hate relationship  ?  I use it for work so truly I cant say . but everyday The amount of Soft Porn i see within facebok adverts is getting to me . The amount of friendship requests from pretty naked girls who love my profile is getting to me.The amount of people who ask for money people whom i have never met before but are on my friends list  People add me in conversations i dont want 

Facebook recommends friends for me and then penalizes me if they dont accept it . Whoa ! . Really I was on google + a bit last week and to tell you the truth Those folks there seem to get what it means to be civil in public places and not on my page on facebook where everything goes no matter how much you tweak privacy settings .. Not to talk of the number of Hard core porn we got on facebook virus last year I am thinking ....Young people are on facebook and they say they do not allow people younger than 13 to see all the trash on facebook these days  IS 13 now an age that instead of reading my books  i can see all sorts of stuff !   Should i not go and face my book ?

God help us . Facebook is good but just like the atomic bomb Facebook can be used for pure evil.

Would a rose by any other name still smell as sweet if said rose was synonymous with an entire industry and accounted for the bulk of the revenue generated by the world’s most popular search engine?

We’re about to find out.

Google has made the executive decision to consolidate its overwhelming abundance of ad products under three brand new umbrellas: Google Ads, Google Marketing Platform, and Google Ads Manager. Behold, logos!

As is tradition, change cannot occur without casualties. In this cause, we’re saying goodbye to the digital marketing world’s favorite portmanteau: AdWords.

You didn’t misread. Google is in fact sunsetting AdWords, but in name alone.

At the highest level, this massive announcement was likely instigated by the proliferation of mobile and the shift towards an audience-centric mindset. More opportunities to reach more people across more channels is infinitely easier to take advantage of when all available solutions live in the same place.

This and a slew of other shakeups (more consolidation! Smart Campaigns!) were announced by Google’s Senior VP of Ads and Commerce, Sridhar Ramaswamy, just a week before Google Marketing Next, where blanks will surely be filled in.

In this article, we’ll demystify the announcement and explain:

  • Why this rebrand is happening now
  • What Google Ads means for the future of keywords
  • Whether or not Smart Campaigns are for you

Before we take a closer look at how Google’s shocking brand overhaul will impact advertisers and agencies moving forward, a bit more on exactly what’s going on.

Introducing Google Ads...

Obviously from our perspective, the most important piece of this announcement is the elimination of AdWords (the brand) and the creation of a new brand: Google Ads.

google-ads-logo

Per our ad-tastic overlords, Google Ads “represents the full range of advertising capabilities [Google] offers today… to help marketers connect with the billions of people finding answers on Search, watching videos on YouTube, exploring new places on Google Maps, discovering apps on Google Play, browsing content across the web, and more.”

Along with other channels, formats, and placements, GDN, YouTube, and Shopping (most of which were acquired, not built internally) have called AdWords home for a minute now. Unfortunately,  AdWords is synonymous with search. Having additional channels folded into the same interface has been confusing folks for years now. I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly come across clients who have no idea their video, banner, and search creative are all served from the same platform.

It’s Google’s hope that this new, simpler name will usher in understanding and leave the door open to expand advertising options without confusion in the future.

… and Google Marketing Platform

You can probably jump right over this one if you’re a small business…

Use DoubleClick or Analytics 360? Not any more!

google-marketing-platform-logo

Built atop existing integration between the formerly disparate platforms, the second new brand borne of consolidation, Google Marketing Platform will allow enterprise marketers (and the agencies that service them) to marry ad creative and analytics in a single location. This will make it easier for both parties to “plan, buy, measure and optimize digital media and customer experiences in one place.”

As part of Google Marketing Platform, Google has also released a new feature called Display & Video 360. This tool aims to enable “creative, agency, and media teams to collaborate and execute ad campaigns end-to-end in a single place.” This collaborative sandbox situation sounds similar to Facebook’s Creative Hub, which is, as the kids would say, hella useful.

The bottom line: Pretttttttttty neat if you’ve got reason to use it (but if you’re not Adidas or La Croix or some luxury SUV manufacturer, it may as well not exist).

 … and Google Ad Manager

Finally, we come to Ad Manager, Google’s shiny new programmatic platform.

google-ad-manager-logo

A mashup of DoubleClick for Publishers and DoubleClick Ad Exchange (with a buzzword-worthy logo to boot!), Google Ad Manager is the search titan’s “complete and unified programmatic platform,” designed to “do even more for [Google’s] partners—earning them more money, more efficiently, wherever people are watching videos, playing games or engaging with content, and however advertisers are looking to work with them.”

Overhauling Brand Architecture in the Name of Simplicity

As I mentioned earlier, these substantial rebranding efforts are fueled by a growing need for simplicity in online advertising.

Consider the following…

Conceptually, AdWords was built for a computer-first world, one where someone gets home from work, has a smoke, retires to their chambers, and surfs the web for what very well may have been the first time that day.

If you’re younger than me, you might not even remember such a place existed.

Today we live in a mobile-first world, one in which we make initial queries on phones, conduct research from a three-monitor setup at the office, watch product videos on YouTube, and fork over our credit card information via some kind of voice-powered-AI.

Google can help advertisers reach prospects at every stage of this funnel, a fact that simply isn’t conveyed by “AdWords.” Google Ads on the other hand…

emoji-hands

Google Ads (all three new names, in fact) is succinct enough to make it clear what value business can derive from the platform and broad enough to house future Google acquisitions without inciting further confusion. Win-win.

This simplicity is by no means limited to naming conventions: One new(ish) feature that exemplifies the simplicity Google’s striving towards is the new Smart Campaigns.

How Smart are “Smart Campaigns”?

Built atop the same tech that powered AdWords Express, Smart Campaigns are tailor-made for busy small business owners with little in the way of paid search expertise, and little in the way of time. The feature allows busy advertisers to “create ads in minutes and drive real results—like making your phone ring, sending leads to your website, or bringing customers to your store.”

Sounds neat, but will they work?

If you recall, AdWords Express, though fast, was not particularly effective for many businesses because it stripped control from advertisers and put it in the hands of machine learning. Smart Campaigns build on the premise that most small businesses just want to drive calls, store visits, and conversions, and don’t have the time or expertise to learn how to use AdWords (uhh, Google Ads), so why not place your budget in Google’s machine learning-enabled hands.

Fast? Totally. But that doesn’t mean it understands the ins and outs of your business, and that’s a problem.

business-animation

That being said…

Ultimately, it comes down to a simple question: do the time savings and the results from the simplified product generate a net win for your business? If you’re only spending a few hundred dollars a month on advertising, Smart Campaigns might be a decent option for you. On the other hand, if your monthly budget has a comma (or two, or three), it’s a different story entirely.

Embracing Audiences Over Keywords

Complexity across Google’s advertising platforms has led to a need for simple solutions.

In the past, we’ve speculated about Google transitioning away from keywords in favor of audience-centric targeting, similar to what you might find in paid social channels like Facebook and LinkedIn (and we aren’t the only ones!).

google-rebranding-tweet

By stripping “words” from the name of its ever-evolving ad platform, Google has begun the process of shifting advertiser perception away from keyword intent (the secret sauce that makes search queries so damn valuable as an advertising tool) and to a world where our focus shifts towards audiences.

While search will always remain an intent-centric and thus keyword-reliant space (augmented with audiences via tools like RLSA, in-market, etc.), the rollout of Google Ads makes taking a holistic approach to online advertising (investing in channels that don’t directly result in conversions) more palatable for many small businesses.

Implications for Agencies (and SaaS Companies)

Naturally, if you’re an agency or in-house SaaS marketer, there are some changes you’re going to need to account for.

For one, any paid and organic initiatives that previously hinged on the keyword “adwords” or ancillary keywords related to it will need to be tweaked. If you’re an agency that offers AdWords services, you’re going to need to figure out how to guide your clients through those changes.

The good thing is, “adwords” as a term and as a concept isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Campaigns leveraging it won’t suddenly drop off the page. Still, it will be a good idea to monitor paid and organic search volumes around “google ads” and “adwords” as you go about making page updates and bid adjustments.

Google Ads: A Brave New World?

So..ultimately, what’s changing here?

Are you looking at massive campaign overhauls? No, probably not.

Google’s new brands will be rolling out gradually over the next month; and given its commitment to transparency, you can expect day-to-day campaign operation to remain more or less the same. In effect, Google has streamlined its ad and marketing experience. And in a growingly complex landscape of digital marketing apps, tools, and software, that’s a move we can get on board with.

Selling on Konga or Jumia is VERY easy. All you need to do is find a product with good demand, list it on Konga or Jumia, and it will eventually sell because their audience and reach are VERY vast.   I start selling on Konga & Jumia last year and have successfully sold and shipped over 250 different products...

Selling on Konga or Jumia is VERY easy. All you need to do is find a product with good demand, list it on Konga or Jumia, and it will eventually sell because their audience and reach are VERY vast.   I start selling on Konga & Jumia last year and have successfully sold and shipped over 250 different products nationwide without a single review. BuyMart sales on Konga & Jumia have exceed a million naira. This is a business I started with just #10,000 in 2017.

BUT AND A BIG BUT I MADE A BIG BET like nairabet and the other gambling companies I DI NOT KNOW 

To be completely honest with you, the store was just an experiment. I don’t have a business plan or any business continuity plan in place. I was just having fun and never take it serious from the onset. I was playing around on the internet risking my money and enriching internet service providers but something change midway, I started getting bank alert for little effort. All I have to do is just a basic homework, buy the products, ship it to Nigeria, list them on Konga and Jumia, they do the marketing and advert, ensure I get sales, give them the product to deliver to customers and I get bank alert for successful delivery.

Becoming a seller on Konga and Jumia is VERY simple and with simplicity comes low barriers of entry which is very bad for any business. There are ton of competition because Konga & Jumia are getting flooded with bunch of me too sellers.

So what are the dangers of selling on The Two Biggest if it is very easy to sign up as merchant on the platform and start selling to millions of customers daily?

  • DELAY PAYMENT – They are actually working on improving their payment system but nothing is as good as collecting your money immediately after sales. Jumia pay merchants for successful delivery on a weekly basis depending on your payment day of the week sha whereas Konga credit your wallet after successful delivery and the expiration of your return policy. God save you, you use 30 days return policy.
  • Your product becomes Commodity – Every business must have a unique selling proposition but the moment you register as merchant to sell on any marketplace you will lose your USP. Your product becomes a commodity, every Jack and Jill can also register on the same platform to sell the same products at a cheaper rate. The challenge is, Nigerians are usually price conscious.  They will abandon your store for another store with cheaper price for the same product.
  • Competition – Other sellers will copy you in selling the same product. If you happen to be selling a fast-moving products the chance of the platform selling the same products is high. We all want to make money, so if you are using my platform to sell a product and you are making good money, what stop the platform owner from selling the same product.  Remember, they are also into the business of buying and selling. We all want to make money and good profit. Just be READY.
  • Pricing War – Marketplace is a battleground. Everyone want to win. Everyone want to sell and make money, so all sellers start a rat race of winning the customers with the cheapest price per product. Some sellers start selling counterfeit or fake product on the platform to beat their competitors in the marketplace to the price game. Buyers ignorantly head towards the cheapest price because they believe they are getting the best deal for the same product.
  • Product Title, Image & Description – Whether you like it or not other sellers will hijack your product listing to sell their products. They will ripped off your product photos and descriptions to list their product on the same platform. To make situation worse, they will be selling at a cheaper rate. So whatever you do, just be ready.
  • Fees & Commissions – The house always wins. The marketplace will always have superior hand over other sellers on the platform if you sell identical products because they will charge you commissions for using the platform. The marketplace (Konga & Jumia) are also in the business of buying and selling products like every other sellers on the platform. Competing with the marketplace owner for the same product on the same platform owned by them will lead you to bankruptcy.
  • Customers – People that buy from your store in the marketplace are not your customers, they belong to the marketplace. The marketplace have their details and can market other products on the platform to them anytime, anyway, anywhere and any day.  The marketplace is only lending you their customers to transact business with.
  • Return Products – No seller love to have customers return what they purchase but it happens for several reasons. The customers might change his/her mind because of delay in delivery or for whatever reasons best known to the customer. The dangers of having return products on Konga is that it will affect your store visibilities on the platform whereas on Jumia return products takes FOREVER. You need to fast and pray before you get your return products on Jumia. Make sure you have enough products before you start selling on Jumia or else you are heading out of business.
  • Store Suspension – One of the major risk of selling on Konga or Jumia is that they can delist, suspense or delete your storefront anytime on their platform. If your business depend on the platform 100 percent what happen to your business when they delist or suspense your store.
 
THEY DONT JOKE THIS IS THEIR BUSINESS MODEL AS THEY HAVE THOUSANDS OF SELLERS READY TO TAKE YOUR PLACE WHO HAVE NO IDEA OF THE  FAR CHEAPER ALTERNATIVES 

Konga will suspend your store on their platform if:   

  • You cancel orders
  • You didn’t pay commission of your self-fulfilled orders at due date.
  • Your store have many orders in arbitration
  • You sell counterfeit products
  • You are fraudulent.

Jumia will suspend your store on their platform if:

  • If you cancel orders
  • If you don’t process and ship your orders within 4 days
  • If Jumia cancel your orders due to delay on processing your orders
  • If your order cancellation rate exceed 30% in a week
  • If your order cancellation rate exceed 20% for 3 weeks
  • If your order cancellation rate exceed 10% for 2 out of 3 weeks.

Moral of the story & Conclusion

These companies can close your store on their platform for any reason, including but not limited to complaints of any kind, order cancellation, policy violations that may not be valid or eliminating you as a competitor to make higher profits.

Well, don’t panic yet, starting your ecommerce business there (marketplace) is a good idea because you need to build your brand and your potential customers already trust established brands like Jumia and Konga, so leveraging marketplace platform and brand in building your customer base and online store is a good idea.

You can only get good returns on your investment when you own the platform instead of borrowing it. Owning the platform allows you control your customer unboxing experience.
