Real Estate Investing

I've had a real estate and landlord passion for 15 years and currently own 4 properties. I did some risky things to get all of those loans and I have blog posts and videos that explain my 15 year journey in real estate. I own three condos that I rent to tenants and one home that I live in. I've also lived in the small condo while renting the house to save for another condo. The worth of real estate goes up and down over the years, but as a long term investment, there's nothing like it. The rental income stays the same for 12 months, the monthly cash flow is consistent and it will soon be enough to cover my personal expenses. Take a look at the real estate section of my website to see pictures, videos and more information about the homes and condos that I own and lease to tenants.

My real estate videos push and teach how to figure out the annual profit from your rental and divide it by the amount invested. IRAs have averaged 8-10% over hundreds of years, but sometimes an investment can make more than that. Investing $10,000 should return 10% ($1,000) per year which you can figure out by subtracting the monthly expenses from the rental income. If you run the formula and find that you can make a return of 20% you could make an argument for withdrawing from your IRA. That doesn't consider if the value of the property goes up or down because it doesn't change the amount you invested. This is a long term plan designed for your savings to grow while paying you monthly income, flipping houses is a full time job.

Chris Bell Websites

Websites

I also have a passion for building, maintaining and optimizing websites. I know how to optimize search engine friendly websites that create visits, and visits translate into dollars. A website owner might have products and services available for potential customers to view. Advertisements aren't recommended for companies that sell products, but for those that don't have the means for holding inventory and distributing products. A website owner should incorporate advertisements that direct traffic to Amazon or Wal-Mart in order to collect a percentage of each sale. I focus on growing my father's company website at work selling our products and services. I also continue to grow my personal website so that I can utilize my own cloud storage and to continue learning and understanding HTML, CSS, PHP and SQL programming languages.

Optimization and Marketing are the two biggest factors when building a website. Each of the pages in your website are saved exactly how you save PDFs on your desktop, within folders, and more folders. It makes sense to (optimize) create detailed folder names and file names (PDFs) so that you can search through them, so that they are organized and so that Google can use those words and phrases to rank your individuals pages in their top results. Once you create a blog post, name it, put it in the specific folder and label the pictures and videos appropriately, you have optimized your page. Then you'll start Marketing your page by posting the link on social media, and asking your friends to post a link to it on their blog. Don't ever sacrifice quality for quantity because hundreds of posts with no likes will always lose to one post with hundreds of likes.

Chris Bell Blog

Owning a Blog

Creating a Blog for your website is a fantastic idea for generating content, practicing your skill, understanding how to maintain a website and understanding how to structure each of the pages into a hierarchy with detailed file names. If you're a company, discuss how your products are manufactured, write about your services and discuss future plans for your company. Each post is entered into the search engine and available for viewing by anyone that types in a similar query to the content of your post. A landscaping company could take pictures and write small pieces about each job, then post it on social media. Avoid posting the same pages over and over. Instead, try to create a process like I just explained to produce new pages (blog posts) on a regular (weekly) basis. Be careful not to repeat yourself or downgrade competitors, write a variety of content that proves your honesty, quality and attention to detail. How many landscaping companies have a strong online presence? Perhaps, your perception of the company would change if they did. Likewise for Bloggers, create a process of finding, writing and developing detailed quality posts that push readers forward into your website, or towards the advertisement.

Chris Bell Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency

I started researching cryptocurrency after a friend told me about it in the last quarter of 2017. My programming background allowed me to quickly understand how the transactions are encrypted and form the public blockchain for all to see. Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Dogecoin all need to be mined with computing power, and the cost of electricity somewhat determines the pricing. For example, if it costs $5,000 worth of electricity to mine a full Bitcoin, the price of $7,000 might not seem too high. Separately, Ethereum is a platform that allows developers to create tokens that aren't mined. For example, I created a coin call Chris Bell with a symbol of BELL. I have all the coins and there's nothing illegal stopping me from selling all of them for $5 each without any company behind the coin. Therefore, if you're thinking about getting involved, start with a coin that's mined, NOT an Ethereum token that could be as worthless as BELL on the open crypto market.
