Online Advertising: Google Ads

Online Advertising: Google Ads
This is part 2 of online advertising adventures. In October 10, I had a coupon that I purchase from eBay that allow me match up to $150.00 advertising credit for every dollar I spend. Well this is what the eBay seller had in the description: To earn the credit: After entering the code, your advertising campaigns must accrue costs of at least 25$, excluding any taxes, within 30 days. Making a payment of 25$ is not sufficient. The tracking of advertising costs towards 25$ begins after you've entered the code. Just one cautionary tale, although I put a budget of $1.00 dollar a day, some days cost were like 95 cents while some days were like $1.03. Google Ads Continue reading

Online Advertising: Bing Ads
It was not long ago, in April 2018, I uploaded my first app to the Google Play store. In the next 6 months I had like over 100 downloads and 98 installs.

Samsung s4 repair: Sim card removed

Samsung s4 repair: Sim card removed
I love my s4, but sometimes you have to accept its faults. One thing you have to keep in mind when purchasing gadgets, moving parts tend to wear down. The S4 phone has 2 points where you have some kind of moving parts and that is the sim and SD card tray. Also, some heat issues tend to expand and contract the sim card connector to the circuit board. Thus a loose connection. When you have a bad sim card tray, you will have the "The mobile network will be unavailable until you restart a valid sim card inserted" message. There are three ways to fix it: replace the sim card tray, re-insert the sim cable to the circuit board, or add a bit pressure to the cable Continue reading
