Teens Hunger For Digital Media

Teens Hunger For Digital Media

I am going to take a brief plunge into Teens Hunger For Digital Media consumption today. What spurred me to do so was a visit to a friend’s house for dinner recently. It was after dinner we were all sitting around downstairs and I could hear a noise coming from upstairs. Which I described at the time as perhaps a video game or more particularly it sounded to me like a dinosaur game. My query to the other adults got some odd looks as I guess they could not hear it and the teenager that was downstairs with us at the time did not give me any information to work from. I left it, and the night went on, then when things went quiet again later I could hear the noise quite clearly again. I had been upstairs in between hearing the noise, to check on our toddler Keisha who was playing with Lego blocks. Although I did not notice at the time when hearing the noise again later I clicked that no computer games that I knew of were being played on the main TV upstairs. So when I ask the question again and one of the other teenagers living there was downstairs with us group of adults. I was finally relieved of my confusion for what was producing the confusing background noise. It turned out that it was a Skype call between a bunch of teenage friends, and that day just leave it running pretty much whenever they are home. The teenage resident went on to say that it even got left on at times when that sister resident wasn’t even home or had fallen asleep for the night. This blew my mind and made me ask if they had unlimited data.

Streaming aside, my thoughts went to the privacy side, of having homes all linked up through audio and visual at all hours of the day and night. I am showing my age here but it is such a vast difference from when I was a teenager and a majority of us didn’t even own a mobile phone.

Out of intrigue I did some research and interestingly enough kids of today actually watch more YouTube and Netflix than traditional TV.  Teens spent 65 percent of their time watching Netflix and YouTube, compared to just 26 percent of their time watching “traditional TV.” Although Netflix is clearly dominating teen viewing habits at 38 percent, according to a study by Piper Jaffray.

Amazon Prime membership has also grown among teens (although probably paid for by their parents) in each of the past five surveys, and Piper Jaffray now estimates that 51 percent of teens surveyed are now a member (or their parents are). Amazon Prime for those who do not know provides unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, and the ability to borrow books from the Kindle store

Teens now spend up to nine hours a day on social platforms, while 30% of all time spent online is now allocated to social media interaction. And the majority of that time is on mobile – 60% of social media time spent is facilitated by a mobile device(

It is definitely a changing world and vastly different to when I was growing up. What’s your thoughts on our love of digital and social media? Please I would love to know your thoughts in the comments section. If you enjoyed this read, please feel free to share.

Four Common Mistakes Made By Affiliate Marketers

You would find it very hard to source a more profitable and gratifying way to make money online than affiliate marketing – promoting someone else’s product for a commission. Having most of the hard work done for you already allows you to focus on money-generating activities like building your list, driving traffic and obtaining sales. Affiliate marketing gives you an unlimited earning potential and has, in fact, created many internet superstars.

Of course, affiliate marketing does take skill, knowledge, and a strong determination to succeed. If you think that you will become an affiliate marketer today and be a gazillionaire tomorrow, you are sorely mistaken. However, if you are serious about building a solid business in the affiliate marketing industry and do your best to avoid some common mistakes that can derail your progress, there is no reason why you cannot do just that.

So, what exactly are the activities that you want to avoid? Below I’ll touch on some of the most common blunders that newbie affiliate marketers make so you can keep clear of them.

1.) No List

Your list is probably the most important tool you will ever have as an affiliate marketer, and yet, so many people neglect to build one. Yes, you can make one-time sales by driving traffic directly to a sales page, but what you want is to be able to make numerous commissions from each and every customer. Having a list, especially a ‘buyers list’, allows you to nurture and grow a profitable relationship with people who will look to you for information on the best products available in your niche.

2.) Commission Based Focus

Yes, it is wonderful to find products to promote that have very high commissions. In fact you can find tons of products that pay out 100% commissions, but be sure that you are only promoting excellent quality items that help your subscribers instead of only looking at your potential income from each sale. Becoming someone with a reputation of recommending inferior products only to make a sale will hurt your reputation in the long run and you will find that as time goes on, you will be making less money instead of more.

3.) Being A ‘Seller’ Instead Of A ‘Helper’

Jay Baer, marketing consultant, speaker, & best-selling author said, “If you sell something, you can make a customer today. If you help someone, you can create a customer for life.” As an affiliate marketer, your job is to let the sales page do the selling and instead, be a connoisseur of expert advice and information pertaining to our niche. When you act more like an honest reviewer of products instead of a salesperson, you are more likely to gain the trust of your followers and in turn, make more money in commissions.

4.) Shiny Object Syndrome

While having several promotional products at a time is not a bad thing, it is possible to have too many irons in the fire when it comes to affiliate marketing. Be sure to have enough time and energy to focus on the things you have going on right now without getting distracted by the next big launch that is inevitably going to come along in the middle of your current campaign. Being an affiliate marketer required constant focus and self-motivation. The ability to see a marketing campaign through to its completion will be a valuable skill to you in your affiliate endeavors.

These four mistakes are common throughout the affiliate marketing industry. Make it a point to avoid these pitfalls and give yourself a more probable likelihood of being successful in your marketing endeavours.
