‘Million’ is a magical word. However, until a few years back, it used to be an alien word for me. I’m from New Delhi, India, and here we talk in Lakhs and Crores. Thanks to globalization and the growth of the blogging and startup industries, “million” is no longer a word that is exciting for me. Why am I talking about this word? Because ShoutMeLoud receives more than 1.5 million page views a month, and one of my goals for this year is to reach 2 million page views a month. I think we can get there… Welcome to this special transparency report of ShoutMeLoud! Every few months, I publish a report like this stating what is happening with our blog, how we performed in terms of traffic and income, and a lot of new ideas and suggestions for bloggers in every niche to grow their own blogging businesses. If you are not sure why I publish such transparency reports, then you should read our philosophy here and check out previous income reports … [Read more...] about ShoutMeLoud July 2017 Blog Income & Traffic Report: $50k Milestone
Update (1st Aug, 2016): Some images not working. We'll get them up and running in no time. Recently we shared the details of our fundraising campaign on how we successfully raised 632k$ in angel investment. Continuing in the same vein we reveal exactly how we went about setting up our brand new office (and the cost analysis). Right from the choice of the building location to which motivational posters are put up on the walls. Why share this? Because no one else does. If someone before us had then that information and experience would have been immensely helpful to us. It would have at least given a heads up on what to expect and which areas to tread carefully or pay special attention to. Fun fact: All the photos in this post were taken with smartphones. Not because we could not afford a decent camera but because some of us took on this task as a challenge. However, our amateur photography is in no way a reflection of our product’s competency 😀 The start of an … [Read more...] about What and How Much it Takes to Build an Office in the Indian Capital?

Do you live in US or planning to move in near future? You can make free money by learning how to manage credit cards. Your next Hawaii trip can be free if you live in USA, have a regular source of income and good credit history. I learnt how to build credit history Since I was alien for US banks, I had to build their trust in my financial repay capacity, known as ‘credit history’. Banks collect credit report from three companies – Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax. These credit bureau companies keep an eye on all your credit cards and loans. The first step for building credit history was to get a loan from the bank. But I knew that banks are not going to approve me any loan until I had credit history. To break this paradox, easiest way was to get a secure credit card that work like pre-paid card but banks report it as credit card. Let’s say if I pay $500 (as deposit) for getting card then bank will grant me credit limit for shopping upto $500. I have to pay … [Read more...] about How I Made $2500 By Just Signing Up For Credit Cards
