Part 1 — 5 Reasons Why You Should Start Blogging 5 part series

Blogging has become an extremely popular thing to do these days. 

What started out as someone having a kind of online diary has morphed into something anyone can use to discuss anything they like — whether it is their daily activities or promoting a business, sharing political opinions, or doing movie reviews, discussing travels, you name it!

In this series, we'll be discussing the reason why you should start a blog and how it could add value to your life or business.

 

1) Got a fantastic hobby?

If you're passionate about something, you probably won't stop blogging about it until someone pries your fingers away from the keyboard. 

Starting a blog can be confusing especially if the internet, WordPress, hosting, SEO, etc. are all new to you. 

You could start a blog very easily by using Markethive though. The entire platform is already set up for you and so all you need to do is actually pick a title and start typing 🙂

Blogging can be quite fulfilling especially when your posts gain popularity and people start to read your posts, send in their questions and comments, etc.

Blogging will also encourage you to get out and learn more and more about the subject you're blogging about thereby giving you a never-ending supply of fresh content for your blog. Plus, you can blog from anywhere!

You will be so pleased with yourself once you have a community of like-minded individuals around you, all contributing towards the success of your blog and hobby.

Stay tuned for the next article!

Where life takes me..

Note: I have to warn you though, with the people being the way they are these days, they won't just skip your blog or keep quiet if they don't like what you're saying. There are those who seem to think it their duty to point out every error or to just be negative in the comments section, so..

DO. NOT. LET. IT. BOTHER. YOU. You just do you 🙂

CMS and CRM — FREE and UNLIMITED — only at MARKETHIVE

CMS and CRM — FREE and UNLIMITED –  only at MARKETHIVE

CMS (Content Management System) and CRM (Customer Relationship Management) provides two separate objectives in the business software realm. A small business needs both a CRM and CMS and Markethive has them both built-in to make it easier for you. The next generation Inbound Marketing Social/Market Network built on the Blockchain with everything needed to succeed under one umbrella.  

 

What Is A CMS? [Content Management System]

You’ll need a CMS from the outset to build your website/capture page, create content on your blogging platform and get your business up and running. (Think WordPress or Markethive) Even if you're not in business, but want an online presence to showcase a product, start a blog or promote your services, you will need a CMS. 

Key features of Markethive CMS include:

  • Custom domain names: When you join Markethive you receive (for free) a CPanel control panel and WordPress system built into your assigned domain, a subdomain of hivesfeed.com

  • Web hosting: Store your website and all of its data either in the CMS or by integrating with a popular web hosting platform.

  • Site editor: Change the layout of your site, either using code or a drag-and-drop editor.

  • Content Library: Store content for publication including images and videos. 

  • Online-store: Set up a catalog of products and integrate a payment portal so users can shop online via your website.
  • Manages the creation and modification of digital content and typically supports multiple users in a collaborative environment. 

  • Markethive provides capabilities for multiple users to manage content, data and/or information of a website project, or campaign but gives you 100% control of your data. 

Markethive assists you in managing content creation, editing, archiving, publishing, collaborating on, reporting, distributing website content, data, and information.

 

What Is CRM? [Customer Relationship Management] 

CRM is quite different. CRM solutions organize and manage information about leads and customers, and so it is a very important tool. Businesses, sales and marketing teams can utilize this tool to keep track of their leads and make sure they’re communicating with their customers at the most opportune times.

You will need a CRM when you start to accumulate leads and build up your client base. (Think Salesforce or Markethive)  

Key features of a Markethive CRM include:

  • Contact management: Markethive acquires high-quality connections (leads) we call “associates”. In doing so, you have access to call them on their verified cell phone, email them on their verified email, message them through the Markethive system and the multiple social networks our system nurtures each subscriber to add to their account. 

  • Groups System: There is also the groups' system that shares your customized funnel systems with all Markethive members. Markethive is rich in data, but unlike the other systems, your data is yours and their data is theirs.  Only You control it, not Markethive.

  •  Interaction tracking: Document every interaction that you’ve had with your customer, including phone calls, support requests, and purchase history.

  • Lead management: Allows you to sort to specific folders, sort by Social network, GEO, email, phone, capture page. Transfer from one group to another and delete. Markethive also has funnel page systems that capture leads for you through the Markethive One Click Widget

  • Email management: It has utilized the OAuth technology to capture data via capture widgets through a choice of Social Media Sites situated on your capture pages, blogs and profile pages. You can send email campaigns or follow up directly from your CRM.  Email Deliverability: Main Inbox  99.97% Spam 0.0% Tabs 0.0%  Missing 0.03%  

Free when you subscribe to Markethive. There are no limitations on the amount or size of your list of subscribers and no upcharges. 100 addresses or 1 million addresses, you will experience nearly 100% delivery for no costs, for free.

 

Leads Funnel Technology

Markethive funnel technology is the epitome of Inbound Marketing, or Automated Marketing designed to draw visitors and potential customers in, generating massive leads and customers. Your system includes capture pages, survey pages, and your profile page all serving to bring traffic into your platform turning traffic into visitors, then leads, then customers and eventually promoters on your team.  Organic, qualified leads for your business on a platform where you can cultivate those leads into long term clients. A system that meets marketers needs on every level.

Markethive’s capture pages are twofold. Create capture pages to build referrals into Markethive, direct them to a specific group, set up specific autoresponders. Choose from a vast selection of thumbnail templates, or build a more sophisticated capture page with custom configurations for the more seasoned marketer. Either way, similar systems sell for over $200 per month and are complex and less effective than Markethive’s one-click proprietary enrolment widgets. All of this included for free to the moon Markethive.

 

Markethive On Blockchain With MHV Consumer Coin 

Markethive is a Social Media Market Platform that is essentially a hybrid between the social networks, Inbound Marketing, eBay and exchanges. What makes Markethive different to other alternatives is it's built on the Blockchain providing transparency; anyone can look at how we function and see that we are not spying on you. It also means everything you do is encrypted and private. The platform is completely decentralized, encrypted, private and secure. All of our code is open source, meaning privacy, transparency and free speech is foundational.

The Consumer coin, MHV, is being utilized within the Markethive exchange by way of airdrops, the faucet system, which rewards associates using the platform,  bounties, and loyalty rewards and the upcoming vault. So the coin is used within the commerce of the system thus creating the velocity. The Revenue is a vehicle that is used to buy the Markethive coin back in the free market so it can be redistributed into the economic vortex of the system. This is a fundamental difference to the other systems currently out there today.

The Markethive system has been developed to produce revenue in the traditional sense with the added benefits of the blockchain taking it to the next level. Markethive is a philanthropic endeavor. To give, not take. To help not exploit.

 

 

Conclusion 

This is the next generation of all things from the past. This is where it's at. Combining all forms of media and marketing built on the blockchain is the new era of online business. No more standalone platforms with the need to integrate with 3rd parties to create optimum leads and results. Markethive, 20 years in the making has had the forward-thinking and tenacity to integrate the latest technology to deliver a complete ecosystem for anybody aspiring to work online.

Markethive’s ILP final strectch before our ICO Bench Launch

Pay Attention
The Final Private Group Offer

Alexa has broken through to 27,400, 20,600 Membership subscriptions have risen past 12,000 15,500, 1/3rd of our projected funding ($100,000) has been reached!

We have built a social and market network on the blockchain. Over 20 years of developing, 4 years in beta, now we are listed on an exchange and ready to come out of beta with nearly 10,000 members, an Alexa ranking of 30,020 over 50,000 followers on our social networks.

Markethive coin has increased in value from 1 penny $.01 to a dime $.10 to $.20 in a short amount of time. The crypto Bull Market has returned and will continue to grow in magnitude for the rest of the year.
By summers end the growth of the industry should be staggering. Two well know protagonist billionaires agree, Tim Draper and Tom Lee.
https://markethive.com/group/marketingdept/blog/bitcoin-price-will-hit-4-million

This is one of the indications it is time to launch Markethive. After nearly a year with the new engineering firm and new engineers on the team, the platform is now stable and the next two months will be focused on bringing on many new upgrades, enhancements and new services.

The Offer.
What is an ILP?

The ILP is well defined in this article titled: What in heck is a Markethive ILP?

Buy $1,000 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive a .12 share of an ILP.

Buy $2,500 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive a .35 share of an ILP.

Buy $5,000 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive a .8 share of an ILP.

Buy $10,000 worth of MHV coin through our Markethive account (Markethive will transfer the coin to your Markethive account or your MEW wallet) and receive 2 shares of an ILP (one ILP and one shadow ILP).
A rotator: Plus earn an equal share of new ILP purchases in our official crowd funding launch of Markethive this summer (proposed)

Additional bonus: Existing ILP owners will also receive equal shares in the rotator Crowd Funding Launch and if you purchase an additional ILP via this offer we will double an equal amount of shares (not shadow shares) you currently hold.
ie: [If you currently hold 3 ILP shares, and purchase 2 ($20,000) new ILP accounts “receiving 2 x 2 ILPS = 4” 2 of your 3 existing ILPs will also be doubled. Giving you a new total of 9 ILPs.] 3 + 1 now equals 9!

This offer ends when 30 ILP shares have been acquired.  Several members have already taken us up on this.
Again if you do not know: What in heck is a Markethive ILP?

The following budget is what determined my decision to do one more private crowd funding before we launch our official Blockchain Crowd Funding and the Markethive Awareness campaign.

We need to raise the money to launch a huge ICO (like) public crowd funding campaign (AWARENESS CAMPAIGN) and need to raise $300k or more to make it a huge campaign. 60% of this money goes to launching our crowd funding campaign in June of this year. 40% goes to Markethive enhancements to prepare for the onslaught of new membership. We need to finish our Markethive.io site. It needs to be replicated. Our front page of Markethive is also getting a new face lift. And Markethive.net will be retrofitted as an ICO rating system

is a conservative estimate and we also want a treasure chest for additional development unforeseen at the moment.

Summary:

As Bitcoin Surges, so will the Markethive Coin and subscriptions and paid services. Our timing could not be better. We survived the Crypto Winter and it is now time to go to the moon.

Markethive is this hybrid symbiotic phenomenon. Unique, exponentially powerful and will be a major driving force in unbelievable revenue generation as well as widespread respected service.

A Case study: Let’s look at the Media Content suppliers for the Crypto media. They have very big traffic and they publish banners, press releases, sponsored articles, ICO analysis all for fees and many make over a $million a year. The tools they use are not unlike the tools we deliver to you in Markethive. That being said, it is not difficult to grasp the fact many Markethive members can build a similar success with our system like we are building for you @ http://aboutbitco.in/

Keep in mind, we have not promoted it nor finished it, but it will be no different than a WordPress portal you could build using the same tools found in Markethive

https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/aboutbitco.in/

Markethive is a market network and these tools are equally commanded by each individual which means any member at Markethive could produce similar traffic and revenue because of Markethive but not by Markethive. It is the entire vision to empower our members to achieve great heights.

Italy’s Economic Pain Is the Bitcoin Price’s Gain

Italy’s Economic Pain Is the Bitcoin Price’s Gain

 

Perhaps it took an economic crisis of another kind to lift the cryptocurrency markets. Italy’s economy is reeling amid a political crisis that has placed a spotlight on the cracks in the EU’s economic foundation.
 

Bitcoin Price Trends up as Italy’s Economy Falters

Italian bonds are going bust, and the negativity has spilled over into stocks as well. But as the global financial markets are reeling, bitcoin is finally beginning to see the light of day again, and it could just have something to do with the fact that a potential threat to the euro highlights the benefits of a decentralized currency like bitcoin.

 

The bitcoin price is currently trading above the $7,400 threshold after falling to a May low earlier in the day.

Reason to Rally

The cryptocurrency markets have been searching for a reason to rally, and many of us have been looking to the centralized governments of the world to provide that catalyst.
 

Meanwhile, the mechanics of the cryptocurrency markets are working just fine, and have pulled off a rally — albeit on modest trading volume — on a development that highlights the very strengths of a decentralized world. Bitcoin and its altcoin peers have proven once again the power of a digital currency that is not controlled by the central bank but instead the masses.
 

The crisis in Italy has placed a great deal of pressure on the euro, sending Europe’s common currency to its lowest levels against the USD in months. Italian bonds have similarly sold off amid the possibility of Europe’s third-largest economy staging a Brexit of its own. A decentralized currency like bitcoin becomes even more attractive when the common currency of Europe becomes unstable.
 

Fundstrat’s Thomas Lee cheered the crypto market’s response, telling Business Insider:
 

“To an extent, I think its good to see Bitcoin rallying with Gold, as the adverse developments in Italy and globally are pushing investors to risk-off. It’s good to see Bitcoin as an uncorrelated trade on a risk off day.”

 

Take the Latin American economy of Venezuela as an example. While the economic conditions in Venezuela are specific to the region, comprised of hyperinflation, food crisis and a broke government, the end result is a currency whose value has been destroyed. As a result, Venezuela’s currency was being exchanged for bitcoin at a record pace in mid-April, when more than $1 million in “bolivar-to-bitcoin” conversions occurred in a single day.
 

Italy’s fate in the EU has yet to unfold, and a snap election appears to be taking shape for the coming months there. In the meantime, it’s not just bitcoin that’s benefitting. Other leading digital currencies including ethereum, ripple, bitcoin cash and litecoin were all trading between 2%-4% higher while cardano soared nearly 10%.
