Instagram Secrets

The Underground Playbook for Growing Your Following Fast, Driving Massive Traffic and Generating Predictable Profits

Instagram Secrets is NOT a book about getting likes and comments or which hashtags to use. Instead, the information found inside of the 21 chapters lays out a step-by-step formula for the two things online entrepreneurs care about most: 1. Building a large following FAST. 2. Converting those followers into DOLLARS. The old way of being successful on social media meant that you had to spend a small fortune to build your following, then light your marketing dollars on fire trying to figure out Facebook ads. Instagram Secrets completely demolishes the old way entrepreneurs were taught to use social media to grow their businesses. Now, anybody (even if you have ZERO Instagram followers) can generate an ENDLESS FLOOD of warm, cheap and targeted leads on demand. The warmer the lead, the easier the sale. The cheaper the lead, the higher the profit. Wasting weeks or months on "testing" is now a thing of the past. You can now test your website, landing page, and sales funnels in just a few hours and make the necessary tweaks that will put you on the fast track to profitability. There is a HUGE misconception about what it really means to be successful on social media: Having tons of followers is great, but it's meaningless if it doesn't make you money. Getting likes makes you feel good, but you can't pay your bills with Instagram likes. Getting leads makes it seem like you are winning, but leads without sales are useless. Those who LOSE on Instagram treat it like a popularity contest to fuel their ego. Winning on Instagram is simple: Just follow the blueprint Jeremy reveals in this book. Will Instagram Secrets work for you? Yes. The pure gold packed from cover-to-cover in this book is not THEORY by the latest "Insta-Fake Guru." The author, Jeremy McGilvrey wrote the book after learning DIRECTLY from Jason Stone, aka @Millionaire_Mentor who to date has 2.4 million followers, built and email list of 350,000 loyal subscribers and netted well over $2,000,000 using only Instagram. Jeremy wrote Instagram Secrets the same way Napoleon Hill wrote the all-time personal development best seller Think and Grow Rich. Hill interviewed billionaire businessman Andrew Carnegie to learn the secrets behind how he achieved his unheard-of success and indestructible WEALTH. He then simplified Carnegie's teachings into the first ever roadmap for attaining extraordinary financial success. Similarly, McGilvrey distilled Jason Stone's vast knowledge into the most comprehensive book ever written for building a massive Instagram following and turning those followers into dollars. Not only did McGilvrey STUDY with the best, he also APPLIED everything he learned from @Millionaire_Mentor to build two Instagram pages to a combined 312,567 followers in under 15 months, collect 35,456 email leads in 7 months and earn daily predictable profits from Instagram. Instagram Secrets was written with the goal of helping entrepreneurs completely bypass the years of pain, suffering and failure associated with building a profitable business and help them to achieve massive online success in record time. If you are looking for another cookie-cutter training about how to become Insta-Famous Instagram Secrets is not for you. But, if you are serious about using Instagram to grow your following fast, get leads, make sales and build a profitable business...Then pick up your copy of Instagram Secrets today.

Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book (the best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with another follow-up to his smash best-seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where volume 3 left off. It's even more of that "Ah ha, so that' s how they do it," straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff people can really use today, and that made volume 1 the world's best-selling book on digital photography. This book truly has a brilliant premise, and here's how Scott describes it: "If you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, 'Hey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?' I wouldn't give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In real life, I'd just turn to you and say, 'Move it in as close to your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in the shot.' Well, that's what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I've learned, just like I would with a friend--without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak." Each page covers a single concept on how to make your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you'll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you're tired of taking shots that look "okay," and if you're tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, "Why don't my shots look like that?" then this is the book for you. This isn't a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With another 200 of the most closely guarded photographic "tricks of the trade," this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.

Antisocial Media

How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy

Author: Siva Vaidhyanathan

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0190841168

Category: POLITICAL SCIENCE

Page: 272

One of the signal developments in democratic culture around the world in the past half-decade has been the increasing power of social media to both spread information and shape opinions. After the Arab Spring of 2011, many pointed to the liberating potential of platforms like Facebook andTwitter. Yet five years later, as many Americans reeled in shock from the election of an authoritarian bullshit artist (using philosopher Harry Frank's technical definition of the term), a few perceptive observers began looking at new at the social and political effects of dominant social mediaplatforms, particularly Facebook. And they did not like what they saw.The media studies and IP scholar Siva Vaidhyanathan is one of those sharp observers, and in Anti-Social Media he argues that our descent into dystopia stems in no small part from trends that have developed in the online world. The 2016 election saw a remarkable and dispiriting increase of peoplehiving themselves off within ideological echo chambers and treating fake news as real. Vaidhyanathan provides a structural explanation of why this happened, and he has located a culprit: social media, and more specifically Facebook. The founders of Facebook may have had (some) good intentions, buthe contends that they have created a Frankenstein's monster that they have neither the will nor capacity to rein in. Fake news abounds, and the algorithms that undergird the platform drive people inexorably to news sites that conform to their ideological predilections - which Facebook can figure outwith ease. Serious news reporting, already in a parlous state, has suffered even more as people on platforms like Facebook (meaning most people) are bombarded by both snippets of news from multiple sources and ads that look like news. Deliberative democracies require informed citizenries able todistinguish facts and falsehoods. By weakening those skills, social media is eroding the very foundations of our democratic republican culture. Social media-driven false news campaigns and ideological echo chambers are not only visible in the US, either - they are clearly on the rise in Europe andacross the developing world too. Vaidhyanathan closes by offering offers a number of smart policy proposals that attack the problem, but they will undoubtedly be hard to enact. But the first order of business when facing a significant new crisis is to recognize its existence and explain what it is.Anti-Social Media promises to be that path-breaking initial step toward understanding how social media is quickly undermining not only centuries of democratic progress, but civil society itself.

Conceived as a gorgeously illustrated accompaniment to "How Do We Look" and "The Eye of Faith," the famed Civilisations shows on PBS, renowned classicist Mary Beard has created this elegant volume on how we have looked at art. Focusing in Part I on the Olmec heads of early Mesoamerica, the colossal statues of the pharaoh Amenhotep III, and the nudes of classical Greece, Beard explores the power, hierarchy, and gender politics of the art of the ancient world, and explains how it came to define the so-called civilized world. In Part II, Beard chronicles some of the most breathtaking religious imagery ever made--whether at Angkor Wat, Ravenna, Venice, or in the art of Jewish and Islamic calligraphers-- to show how all religions, ancient and modern, have faced irreconcilable problems in trying to picture the divine. With this classic volume, Beard redefines the Western-and male-centric legacies of Ernst Gombrich and Kenneth Clark.
