Category : BLOG , Social Media SEO

And then they check out other “stuff”.

Social Media 2015 Tour

Social Media Optimisation is the NEW frontier

Facebook has 1.55 billion active users, 1.01 billion daily users and 894 million mobile active users[ Facebook stats September 30th 2015]
Twitter has 1,000 million users with 500 million using it to follow – not tweeting.
LinkedIn has 400 million business users and 6 million business listings
Short videos attract a 4 BILLION views a day on Youtube AND Facebook
Instagram and Pinterest already have an audience of 400 million users

That’s nearly 3 billion people who are your potential marketplace

Digital Insights reported in that social media produces
DOUBLE the leads of trade shows, telemarketing, daily mail and PPC combined

Aussie Only Business?
Maybe you are worried the world is too big. There are already 14.1 million Australians
over the age of 18 with Facebook accounts plus many millions more with Twitter, Linkedin, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+ accounts and many millions more
who access Youtube videos from mobiles devices and computers each day.

When you just target Australia and you access a market in the MILLIONS.

A note of caution: The rules for Social Media are different to the Web
You need to be Social Media Optimised!

You can’t sit on the sidelines any longer. Now is time to embrace Social Media Optimisation! The prize goes to the earliest adopters in Internet Marketing so act now and you will leave your competitors wondering what happened.

See how Social Media Optimisation has gained wide acceptance as the secret sauce that blasts open doors to new customer interaction. Results for correctly implemented Social Media Marketing by far exceed the reach and results of traditional media and marketing techniques.

What makes up Social Media Optimisation? Well there used to be just Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and YouTube. But 2013 saw the emergence of Instagram, Google + and Pinterest which have a combined audience exceeding 1 billion affluent consumers. In 2015 we now have Snapchat, Periscope and Meerkat – all video driven. This rapid and permanent shift in Internet usage is slowly but surely relegating other forms of advertising such as print ads and Google Adwords also rans last century thinking! Luckily you still have a window of opportunity to take the leap forward as your competitors are still working out what is happening.

Take action NOW and claim your piece of the action.

Social Media Optimisation is the easier, faster and most cost effective way to target your market.

So, take time to learn about the opportunities available with Social Media Marketing and make the decision to attend Social Media Optimisation.

Social Media is BUSINESS friendly! MAJOR CHANGES TO FACEBOOK, TWITTER, GOOGLE+, YOUTUBE and LINKEDIN are all BUSINESS FRIENDLY: Be the first amongst your industry to know how to use and win business with these BRAND NEW features announced in the last 180 days.

It is a lot to take in. The Social Media Optimisation 2016 Seminar will cover: How to use each of the major Social Media media, and then how to combine them to gain MASSIVE coverage in your target area or industry.

If that isn’t enough to make your head spin we will show you how all these changes will impact every thing you do in your business and how to be on the right side of this marketing revolution.

It all started with Facebook…

And now there is Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and maybe the ultimate game changer
Google +. How does this jigsaw fit together? That’s where Social Media Optimisation 2016 comes in. If you find Lecture-style learning a bit too boring, we have that covered! We invite you to attend our Interactive Social Media Marketing Workshop.

Fun and profitable is how we describe Social Media Optimisation. Enjoy networking during a hands-on workshop. If you want you can bring your Netbook, iPad, iPhone, or Andriod smartphone and join in and experience beginners through to advanced techniques for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or YouTube. Even a novice can leave a Twitter expert.

This will also be your coolest networking experience in 2016!

Facebook is the most visited place on the internet! Currently 1,000 million registered users visit the site each month.More VIRTUAL farm goods will trade on Facebook in 2012 than in the REAL world. Many businesses conduct their whole business using Facebook business pages.

Google + is not just a social network it is Google’s answer to making search results current and relevant. Because the “traditional” way to rank websites has been replaced by social media activities there needed to be a way to create AUTHORITY. That way is Google +. 300 million regular users have joined in the first 24 months!

The preferred learning medium for people younger than 30, which is half the world’s population, is video. Youtube serves up 1 billion short videos everyday! When people want to know about something, they search Youtube for the answer. Youtube is the world’s second most popular search engine. You need a Youtube challenge… We will show you why.

Twitter is the most misunderstood of the Social Media platforms. However, it has 500 million regular users and traffic in December 2011 was 200% more than December 2010.

Every major TRADITIONAL media outlet has a Twitter presence… what do they know you don’t? After this session you will look again at how Twitter is such a valuable addition to your marketing mix.

LinkedIn was originally developed for traditional job placement firms to have a platform to attract and place job applicants. It has grown to nearly 300 million users, it is listed on the Stock Market in the US at $20 billion valuation and has become the PROFESSIONAL Facebook for business. Use this amazing platform to build your reputation across the globe and access the very best people, resources and ideas on a regular basis.

Instagram launched in Oct 2010 and now has 150 million users who have uploaded 16 billion photos, becoming a social-media phenomenon.Top brands using Instagram include Starbucks, Red Bull and Burberry.

Brands are using Instagram to communicate with their customers on yet another social media level, as it turns out the platform is more effective than Facebook or Twitter.

Pinterest is a relatively new social networking site that is fun, easy, and catching on the hype right now. It allows users to create online image collages, then quickly and easily share those collages – called “pinboards” – with other Pinterest users.

Pinterest is great for pinning up the items from your store and letting users see what you have available in the catalogue.

Learn from the Best in the World

Personal note from Wayne Mansfield: 

Many people were asking me… “Does social media marketing work…”

Well consider this: Social Media is credited with starting revolutions, bringing down governments and, more importantly for you and I, making many businesses hyper successful… Check out how every major business in the world has at least a Facebook page and Twitter account and ALL news every major media organisations promote their Social Media connections.

For the first time in history more people visit a social media place -Facebook – than look at search engines or web pages or gambling or [mmm]… Facebook or Twitter are the preferred destination for many people when they visit the internet – and NOT just young people. The fastest section of new members are in the over 50 demographic.

Join the Social Media Revolution – I use Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Youtube to build my business and I can show you how to combine all the MAJOR social media formats so that like me your message can be seen by upwards of 25 million people everyday… shouldn’t your message be spread more widely too!

I have crafted what I believe is the most comprehensive Social Media Marketing workshop, anywhere in the world, and can have you up and running within hours – and best of all… you don’t need a lot of money to make it work.


Who says Wayne Mansfield is the best in the world – let my figures tell the story!!

Facebook: Friends – 4,000, Twitter Followers 105,000, LinkedIn Connections 11,918 for a 25 million network… all these numbers add up to a greater distribution network than any newspaper or television group in Australia!

Because so few people have made social media marketing work, my reputation for making Twitter and social media effective has spread worldwide. Consequently I am consulting to companies in The Middle East, Germany, India, USA, the UK and Asia. So, I implore you… make a decision to join me at one of my Social Media Marketing Optimisation workshops and really unlock the power of social media marketing for your business.

Ransomware is in full bloom – Protect yourself now!

Ransomware is a big problem and its growing way faster than your peonies and petunias are. In fact in just the second quarter of 2015 there were 4 million new incidents of Ransomware alone.

It has grown in numbers from a relatively minor bother, mostly found in Russia into a world-wide scourge, leaving no corn-near of the globe unaffected.

In terms of sophistication, Ransomware is constantly evolving as well. The first noted case, which was almost laughable by today’s standards, was created in 1989 by the less-than-stable biologist, Dr. Joseph Popp. Popp’s version was distributed through a disk that was supposed to contain an AIDS education program. Instead user’s computers were locked and Dr. Popp would ever so generously unlock them for just $198.

Today if you were to get tangled up by some form of Ransomware 2.0 such as the notorious Cryptolocker, it would cost you anything from approximately $600-2000 to unlock your device. And, as with all aspects of the nasty bugger, don’t even think about trying to pay with credit card or, *gasp*, cash, Nowadays savvy hackers only accept payments via bitcoin, which that means if you’re the unlucky victim, you also have to figure out how to set up a bitcoin account and get money in the account, all so the hackers can retain their anonymity as long and as well as possible.

In ransom wares earlier incarnations it seemed that such evil exploits were limited in scope to PCs but not so anymore. Today, hackers can take just about anything ransom, from your PC to your Mac or Linux, your iPhone or android and even your fitness trackers. Today nothing is safe from ransomware, not even your allergies (gehzundheit!). And the locking methods are much, much more effective. Back in Dr. Popp’s days (cue the mad scientist evil laugh), he used a relatively easy-to-reverse locking technique called symmetric cryptography. The lockers of today use super-strong encryption methods that simply cannot be reversed without the correlating unlocking keys. Talk about raining on your parade.

Ransomware affects home users, small businesses, mega corporations, governments and don’t forget the perps new favorite target, hospitals networks. The situation has become so perilous that on March 31st the US and Canada issued a joint cyber alert imploring citizens to take the threat seriously and use the Internet with forethought and caution.

Here are some things you can do to keep your computer and devices safe from the big bad ransomware.

  • • Keep away from shady links in the body of emails and attachments and on websites Clicking on malicious links that are designed to appear legit can cause your computer or device to download locking malware among other baddies.
  • • Back up your files. When it comes to beating ransomware, this is one of the most important things you can do because when it comes to soothing like Cryptolocker, there is no known solution other than paying up or starting over.
  • • Keep your ZoneAlarm software and Operating System updated. Malware and zero-day exploits including Ransomware just love to meet up with an operating system or other software that’s in need of updating or patching. One of the very most effective methods to keep hackers out it to ensure that your device is always running the most recent version of software and that your OS is always at the most current version.
  • • Run ZoneAlarm Extreme which will alert you to anything suspicious that might be trying to get onto your computer. The dual protection of AV and firewall increases the chances of any infiltrators being caught.

At ZoneAlarm, everything’s comin’ up roses Stick with us here at ZoneAlarm to find out all the latest ransomware-related news and have a great, ransomware-free May!

Hacked Compromised WordPress Sites

Category : BLOG , SPAM & SCAMS

What Hackers Do With Compromised WordPress Sites :

We often talk to site owners who are surprised that their sites are targeted by attackers. Most of them assume that if there isn’t any juicy data to steal, like credit card numbers, that compromising their site is a worthless exercise. Unfortunately they are wrong. Aside from data, a compromised site’s visitors can be monetized in various malicious ways.  The web server can be used to run malicious software and host content and the reputation of the domain name and IP address can be leveraged.

Last month we ran a survey that included the following open ended question for people who reported that their site had been compromised:

What did the hackers do to your site?

We received a total of 873 responses that could be categorized, which we did by hand. The chart below reflects the results. Many of the responses described multiple categories, so the percentages on the chart below deliberately add up to greater than 100%.

We did not include categories for “installed backdoor” or “installed malware”. We consider that to be more of a means to an end. Instead we focused on answering the question, “what’s in it for the attacker?”.


As you can see from the chart there are a wide variety of things that attackers are doing with compromised WordPress sites. Let’s take a look at each of them, so we can better understand the motive behind the attacks that we are constantly defending against.



If you were of the opinion that your site couldn’t possibly be of interest to hackers, we hope that this post has changed your mind and given you some insight into their motives and methods.

Regardless of what you use your site for, how much traffic it gets or how inexpensive your hosting plan is, an attacker can figure out how to make use of it if they can break in. To learn about how attackers gain access to WordPress sites, check out our blog post from last month.

Apple Getting Desperate : How Australian Citizens Are Getting The Brand New iPhone 6S For Only $1

iPhone 6S Giveaway

If you live in Australia and want the brand new iPhone 6S, then this may be the most exciting article you’ll ever read.

Here’s the deal: Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) is giving away 250 brand new 64 GB iPhone 6S’s to Australian citizens for $1. Yes you read that right- one australian dollar.

As part of a special holiday promotion, Apple is working with its trusted distribution partner, Skillgamee for, giving away iPhone 6S’s that cost 99% off regular retail price.

Why are they offering this crazy promotion? Director of Marketing, Joel Branson explains, “Last year, Apple’s Australian market share dropped to 35% and is losing to Google’s Android worldwide. Apple can recapture Australian users by giving away extremely low-priced iPhone 6S to people and converting them into repeat Apple customers who will spread the word to their friends.”

Sounds too good to be true? That’s what 29 year-old Sophie Davies of Adelaide thought too. She decided to give it a shot and received her $1 iPhone 6S in the mail a couple of days later.

dan tran 660.jpg

Sophie explains, “At first, I thought this was just another internet scam, but then I did some research and saw that Skillgamee is a legitimate promotions company and Apple partner. I decided to risk the $1. It’s less than the price of a cup of coffee anyways. 3 days later, I check my mail and am delighted to see a shiny new box with an Apple logo on it.”

Apparently this “practically free” promotional tactic is common practice among big companies with big marketing budgets. For instance, Burger King launched a similar campaign in 2013, giving away 20,000 free Whoppers on Facebook.

Here’s how to claim your iPhone 6S for $1:

1. Simply visit the official $1 iPhone 6S promotion here

2. Fill out your email address and pay $1

During this special promotion, you’ll also receive a $20 gift card to JB Hi-Fi, Australia’s largest home entertainment retailer. Your gift card will be delivered immediately (they even cover the delivery fee), and you’ll receive it in 3-5 days.

Click here to check if $1 iPhone 6S are still available

So you can get an iPhone 6S for incredibly cheap. But is the new iPhone 6S really the best smartphone on the market?

Our review department compared the iPhone 6S to previous-gen Apple iPhones and Android phones and this is what we concluded: the iPhone 6S ranks #1 in call quality, battery life, screen resolution, speed and message delivery.

In short, it’s the best, most reliable phone currently on the market. Combined with the fact you can get one for only $1, the choice is a no brainer.

Update (7 January, 2016):

Our team thought this iPhone 6S promotion was too good to be true, so we ordered one over the weekend and received it yesterday morning!

dan tran 660.jpg

We thought this special offer was too good to be true, so we ordered an iPhone 6S over the weekend and received it yesterday morning!

UPDATE: Apple’s $1 iPhone promotion ends midnight on 7 January, 2016. As of today, there are less than 100 products remaining in stock. After midnight, you won’t find a 64GB iPhone 6S for cheaper than $1,229 so act fast and take advantage of this incredible deal.

More on this…

  • Skillgamee offering iPhone 6S for $1…

  • Apple’s most outrageous sale ever

  • Experts say iPhone 6S is better than any Android, despite more expensive price

  • Candice’s sexiest photoshoot


  • Charlotte Cox

    I saw this on the news. How crazy is it that they’re giving these away for $1!? I’m signing up right now
  • Ruby Mason

    The timing of this couldn’t be better, I havn’t started my birthday shopping yet
  • Mia Graham

    Haha wow.. my friend just bought one for $1229. I’m going to rub this in his face. Anyone actually receive one?
    • Sophie Clarke

      @Mia Got mine in the mail this morning!! 😀 Brand new and runs SO much smoother than my Samsung
  • Emily Patel

    wow this is legit!! thought this was a joke at first but I decided what the hell and paid $1. Today, I got mine in the mail
  • Noah Thompson

    @Cooper- stupid or not, I just got an iPhone 6S plus for $1 lol. This is amazing. Finally a reason to like Apple
  • Cooper Wilson

    This is the stupidest “marketing” scheme ever. I really thought Apple would be smarter than this. This is not going to help them recapture their market share. They are losing to Android and theres not much they can do about it. This seems like a really desperate attempt to capture just a few new users, and cheapens their product significantly.
  • Grace Davis

    Just ordered mine. Only 43 left, so hurry up guys!
  • Ellie Green

    My friend told me about this the other day and I thought he was joking. Can’t believe this is actually true. I’m going to give this a shot
  • Katie Smith

    I havn’t signed up for this yet, but I’m familar with Skillgamee because my cousin works for them. Last year, they did a PS4 giveaway and over 2 thousand people got free playstations. When it caught on with news sites, everyone and their mums ordered one and it was pretty much over. Take advantage while you still can!
  • Daisy Roberts

    Ah yes I heard of Skillgamee before. They did an Android tablet giveaway a while back and I got one for $1 (shame on them for promoting both Apple AND Android lol
  • Emily Hughes

    Seriously? This is an amazing deal, but Apple is just STUPID to offer this lol
  • Oliver Wright

    Got back from work and THIS was waiting for me on the table…. Wooooo!
  • Amber Lewis

    I used different emails and ordered 5 of these lol
  • Megan Price
