How to share files between smartphones at blazing fast speeds

- - Android, Quick tips

Sometimes we want to transfer large files between phones but due to slow transfer speeds of bluetooth or internet we cannot transfer the files. So for that purpose, there is an app named Fast File Transfer.

This android app makes a wifi hotspot on the sender’s device and the client device connects to the hotspot and on entering the port number on the client device, the download is started on the reciever’s device.

To transfer files, refer to the following steps:-

Step 1. Download the Fast File Transfer app from the Play Store on the Android smartphone/tablet you are going to be sending files from.

Step 2. If you are in public area, you have the option to set your Wifi SSID and password to make it secure.

Step 3. Next just find the files you want to transfer in your Android device and select “Send” or “Share” and select “Fast File Transfer”.

Step 4. Your phone will ask you to connect to your set SSID or “Fast File Transfer” if you don’t have a password set.

Step 5. Go ahead and connect to your set SSID or “Fast File Transfer” via Wifi on your other Android smartphone or tablet device.

Step 6. Browse to the IP address 192.168.43.1:8080 on reciever’s browser to start downloading.

Now you have a pretty nice replacement for bluetooth ! But the downside is that this feature will not work for phones which does not support wifi hotspot feature for example, Nexus 7 or Droid Razr.

How to earn from your blog!

- - Blogging, Earn Money

You had made your awesome blog and pleased the readers. But now it is the time for your readers to earn money for you! Its the time to monetize your blog.

Monetising means to add adverts, promotional texts, etc. to earn big bucks from your blog. For monetising , you have to first choose a advertiser that will display advertisements in your blog. You can become a affiliate partner and display affiliate ads on your blog and earn commissions when users sign into the advertiser’s website through your blog or you can add CPC (Cost per Click) advertising that will make your blog earn money when anybody clicks on the advertisements shown on your blog. You can also opt out for displaying banners on your blog for monthly rents from the advertiser.  In this form of advertising, there is maximum revenue as there is no one in between of you and your advertisers But your blog should have good reputation for this.

You can display affiliate ads in form of banners or text in your blog. Banners attract readers of your blog to the advertiser’s website so they should be attractive. Text ads should be place very smartly in between your blog posts so that the users cant get to know that you are advertising something. 

You can become an affiliate for free on sites such as Hostgator, Amazon, etc.

CPC advertising

Cost Per Click (CPC) refers to the actual price you pay for each click in your pay-per-click (PPC) marketing campaigns.

A “click” on one of your PPC text ads represents a visit, or an interaction with your company’s product or service offering. Every click in a PPC campaign represents attention from a person who is searching for something that you offer. This attention is what you’re buying, as an advertiser, so it’s important to note two factors:

  • What type of attention you’re going after, and
  • How much you’re paying for it.

CPC Calculation formula:-

The actual formula for cost per click in AdWords is:
