GDPR: My Approach

I’ve had so many emails on GDPR, particularly in the latter half of this week, that I decided to record a short video on it.

Click PLAY on the video below to see:

Here is a link to the resource I mentioned towards the end of the video.

Your thoughts and comments are very welcome but please don’t post advice or interpretations of GDPR unless you are a qualified lawyer! Please use the form below 🙂 Cheers, Rob.

My 1,253% Return On Bitcoin

I’ve received quite a few emails regarding my Bitcoin holdings.

So following on from last year’s blog post when I announced I was buying, here is an update:

In the video above I answer the questions:

1. Am I going to sell?

2. Would I buy it now if I didn’t already own it?

And also some other points which you might find useful.

The site you see in the video is CoinMarketCap and I use Coinbase to buy my crypto currencies.

If you enjoyed this, have questions or feedback I’d love to hear from you in the comments below … I’ll reply personally to you 🙂 Cheers, Rob.

How To Create Strong AND Easy To Remember Passwords (Great Little Trick!)

strong-and-memorable-passwordsOne my subscribers has just shared a great little trick which he’s kindly agreed to allow me to pass on to you here.

As you know you should always use STRONG passwords like:


Trouble is these are near impossible to remember.

To solve this you can use a password manager such as RoboForm or LastPass (my choice).

However, your password manager is not always on hand when you need it.

For instance, you might be using a friend’s computer or an internet cafe PC in a foreign country.

I’ll quote our tipster directly here:

I’m Investing In Bitcoin: Watch Me Buy, Send, Sell And Cash Out!

[UPDATE Dec 22nd, 2016: Would you believe it? The service I show you in the video,, has stopped facilitating the direct buying and selling of Bitcoin. They are now recommending Coinbase instead. Hope this post still helps you in understanding the basics on Bitcoin though.]

Obviously this is quite different to the usual internet marketing stuff I post about on this blog.

But it’s something that interests me so I thought I’d share it with you too 🙂

First, here’s a short video I made for you:

And some more info on why I’m doing this…

1. I’m Investing In Bitcoin

Specifically, I’m putting a very small percentage of my personal investment portfolio in bitcoin and holding that for the long term (i.e. years, not weeks or months).

You might call this a punt.

I’m quite prepared to wake up one day and learn that Bitcoin has disappeared off the face of the planet and my coins are worth nothing.

If so that’s fine – I won’t lose sleep and my lifestyle won’t be affected because I’m not betting “the house” (which I wouldn’t do on anything anyway).

>> Never invest more than you’re prepared to lose <<

On the other hand, maybe bitcoin won’t go to zero and I personally believe there is a good probability that its price will experience a very large rise over the longer term.

2. What Is Bitcoin?

It’s a currency which is created and held electronically.

It’s decentralised meaning that unlike normal currencies such as dollars, euros and yen it isn’t controlled by any central bank, government or group of individuals. It also has very low transaction fees which is one of its major advantages.

Here’s a reasonable helpful beginner’s guide on Coindesk’s website: (all links in this post open in a new window).

3. Why Bitcoin’s Price Could Rise

This is purely my opinion and nothing more. This is not financial advice and I’m not qualified to give any. Do your own research and take responsibility for your own investments.

With the health warning out of the way, here’s where I see the upside in bitcoin’s price:

How I Generated 68,738 Visitors & Survey Results

As you probably saw, I sent out a couple of emails to my internet marketing newsletter subscribers asking:

“When it comes to creating and launching your own product, what do you see as the biggest single challenge?”

I gave these options:


First of all I’d like to say a BIG THANK YOU if you voted, I’ve always found that for some reason only a minority of people bother to participate in surveys like these so I appreciate it if you took the time!

And if you didn’t, of course that’s okay too… I hope you still get value from this write up 🙂

In this blog post we’ll look at:

1) Why I ran this survey
2) Results summary
3) Solutions to the challenges

Let’s get cracking…
