This week, we review VideoHive. It’s like iStockPhoto but for videos, and can save you literally thousands of dollars in expensive video production.

It’s super easy to use: VideoHive is basically licenses to videos that you can fully customize. So, you remember the old UPS whiteboard commercials that have become really popular? I’m going to show you an example of that, just so you can wrap your head around what you can do with it.

So hopefully, you get the idea. You can customize all of that text, you can add your company logo. And the only thing you need to do that is the program Adobe AfterEffects. You edit it yourself. This video, for example, costs 30 bucks for the license. That’s something that would cost you thousands and thousands of dollars to go make on your own.

Also they have fancier videos at their disposal. If you want videos with 4D cinema, after effects and motion effects, Video Hive has them. You can then use a video editing program to customize the videos to your specific message you are trying to get across.

Animated logo by sound in Cinema 4D Project allows you to make your own 3D intro which will move by your sound.

Pros:

High quality professional videos gives you and your site credibility and authority.
Sort videos by various criteria (date, title, author, price, rating, etc.) to help you nail down the videos you need.
Earn money though Video Hive by selling your own stock if you wish.
Save money and time by buying cheap quality videos instead of spending a fortune to have them created for you or doing them yourself.

Cons:

Videos aren’t geared towards typical internet marketing niches like weight loss and insurance, but with some creativity you can make them relevant.

So, videohive.net, a lot of good stuff to play with on there. Go check it out, hopefully you can utilize it for your own company.

Overview

A new provider with the rather philanthropic mission of delivering free mobile service to all, FreedomPop takes a different approach to its broadband plans. It offers both dedicated 4G plans, which tend to be cheaper, and plans that offer additional nationwide 3G roaming at a slight premium. Where FreedomPop stands apart, however, is its ultra-budget option: You can sign up for a free, 500MB monthly allocation that can be used with any Sprint-compatible USB modem or mobile hotspot.

The Company

FreedomPop’s mission is to deliver free and fast mobile services to all Americans.

FreedomPop is a new wave telecom company launched publicly in October 2012. It is headquartered in Los Angeles and backed by Skype Founder Niklas Zennstom’s Atomico, Mangrove Capital, and DCM. Delivering unprecedented value and convenience to the mobile market, FreedomPop ensures that no American is left off the digital grid.

How FreedomPop Works?

FreedomPop website, submit your zip code and email to find out if you live in an area serviced by them. Since FreedomPop operates through Clearwire and Sprint, it is likely you will be able to take advantage of what they have to offer.

 FreedomPop.com requires the purchase one of their devices for connectivity to their data plans. Many of them are geared toward those who seek to increase the capabilities and usage of their mobile phones, laptops and tablets while on the go.
FreedomPop’s plans are based around a data bundling system. Any unused data for that month is bundled and then is sold for a lower price. This enables them to offer great deals to their customers.

Plans Available

With the 500MB plan, it is enough to let you browse Facebook, check your email or order food online, if you plan to connect to the mobile internet more often or stream any sort of video, you’ll want more data to play with. With plans as small as 1GB and as large at 10GB, most casual users should be able to find an allocation that suits them, for prices notably cheaper than what’s offered by the competition. Other considerations aside, $60 for access to 10GB of 4G LTE data is a solid deal. You can sometimes find even better ones on the FreedomPop website, but they change often and aren’t always clear.

Conclusion

FreedomPop is designed for those who don’t do much on the internet other than browse Facebook and check email. If you fall into that category, though, it’s one of the cheapest options available, and might even be free.

MaxCDN is one of the largest Content Delivery Network provider. They accelerate your site and decrease the server load.

MaxCDN has grown to become one of the top CDN providers for WordPress users. The company has created an affordable and easy to use Content Delivery Network which serves as a perfect solution for WordPress Users.

Should you use MaxCDN for your wordpress site?

We would highly recommend you do so. The main reason behind our decision was site performance and SEO. After the Google Panda update, everyone knows that site load time plays a crucial role in your search engine ranking positions (SERPs).

What is CDN?

A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers across the Internet to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance.

A CDN drastically improves your site’s load time by distributing the static content across the all servers in their global peering network. When a visitor requests a page, the static files are served from the CDN’s server which is physically closest to his/her (the visitor’s) location. Static files include JavaScript and CSS files, images, custom web-fonts and other web objects.

Why MaxCDN?

  • MaxCDN’s start plan costs only $9/month and their plus plan costs only $39.95/month without discounts. The start plan offers 100GB bandwidth per month. It’s more than sufficient for medium-sized sites.
  • MaxCDN is very easy to set up and use. Setting up MaxCDN on WordPress sites using W3 Total Cache requires 5 minutes of time at most.
  • MaxCDN has data centers around the world. They have numerous servers (edge locations and peer locations) all over North America and Europe. New edge locations are planned in various parts of Asia.

Benefits:

As well as site loading speed increasing, MaxCDN will have a big impact on user experience on your site.  Due to pages loading much quicker, this will help reduce bounce rate and keep people on your site for longer.  This in turn will lead to more pageviews as people will be more willing to check out your other content that you have on your site.

One of the reasons we decided to make changes to our site was because we had had some server issues.  On a couple of occasions our server was under pressure at our busy periods, leading to our site crashing a couple of times.  MaxCDN offers better crash resistance by distributing the load from your server across their own set of servers.  So, your site shouldn’t have as many (if any) problems like this again.

Like we have said, search engines are putting more emphasis on site speed, so the faster your site loads; it will have a positive impact on your SEO.  Site speed can help you rank higher in the search engines, which can help drive more traffic to your site.

Competitive Pricing

MaxCDN offers a very reasonable pricing despite its brand value. An annual subscription will get two months free. Plans start at 9 USD per month, with a limit of 2 zones. The same plan would cost you 90 USD annually (instead of the usual 108 USD).

High volume pricing starts at 499 USD/month for 10TB, including a 1 on 1 setup call. And guess what, the annual discount applies here too!

Who Should Use MaxCDN?

Well, anyone really!  If you have a website with a global audience, it can help your site out significantly.  This is even more relevant if you have a very large website with lots of content.

One of the great things about MaxCDN is that it is easy to integrate with WordPress.  You can just set up an account and install MaxCDN on WordPress pretty easily.

If you are looking for hourly job to earn some part time pay, this review is for you. Read on to find out how you can land yourself a part time job with Snagajob.

Snagajob is the largest job search site for hourly employment.

Founded in 1999, the company provides online recruiting for hourly part-time and full-time jobs in a wide range of industries, including entertainment, retail, and foodservice. Jobseekers can also submit an application and search through thousands of available positions across the US. The company keeps the jobseekers’ profiles as long as they are updated regularly. Registering 20 million job seekers since its inception, it has counted 7-Eleven, FedEx, Wendy’s, Home Depot, and Staples among its customers, as well as small businesses and government agencies.

Is Snagajob A Scam? Or in other words, is it safe?

One of the first things I noticed about Snagajob.com was how useful the “job resources” section on their website was and I took advantage of reading through quite a few helpful articles to get informed and inspired. Next, I visited the Better Business Bureau to see what kind of rating this company had and I was pleasantly surprised when it said “A+.” It turns out Snagajob.com has had only 25 total complaints filed since 1999, a figure that was shockingly low for a company with well over a million members since the BBB tracked them many years ago.

The Features

From customer service to health care, Snagajob posts thousands of part-time and full-time hourly jobs. These positions turn over frequently, ensuring a steady new stream of opportunities each time you log in.

Easy-to-use resume tools from partner sites:

Once you find the right jobs, you need to set yourself apart through your application. Improving your resume is the easiest way to do this. Snagajob links you with MyPerfectResume.com, which offers free templates, samples, and formatting tools to help guide your resume improvement process.

Job alert emails sent straight to your inbox:

A big time saver, especially for job seekers juggling family responsibilities, is getting new job postings sent right to you via email. Snagajob does well matching your searches and profile to relevant job alerts. Sometimes, recruiters also send out email notices about job opportunities in your area. Setting up job alerts for your search is a great way to ensure you don’t miss out.

Job search tips for hourly workers:

Part of the challenge of breaking into a new job is learning about techniques to get better search results, enhance your image in the eyes of an employer, and nail interviews. The job tips forum provides you with rich information from industry experts at Snagajob. The feature even lets you post specific questions about the job search process and Snagajob answers them for you as soon as they can.

How it works?

The online job board makes searching and applying for both part-time and full-time positions simple; but first, you need to register on the site. The registration is of course free. Most listings require that you apply for the position on the corporate website rather than this site, so you should be prepared to fill out a different application on each job you apply to.

They offer a limited amount of support that takes the form of FAQs, email support and telephone support. The site also provides a number of job resources, or articles, on a variety of employer- and job seeker-related topics. The folks at SnagAJob.com, or “Snaggers,” have also been gracious enough to create job advice videos for users. The videos are by no means professionally recorded, but the videos oftentimes give a humorous perspective on such topics as the “Dos and Don’ts of Interviewing.”

Bottomline

If you are looking for hourly job, Snagajob definitely is the place you should try it out. They have job postings on wide range of industries, as well as from large corporations and also small business.
