Why MEGA Cloud Storage Is Also Great for Marketers

MEGA offers a one-of-its-kind solution for securing your stored files, whether for personal or business use. The cloud-storage platform comes with a free Starter Plan, and there are also numerous paid-for plans that scale up to both power users and commercial use requirements.

It’s the much better and smarter option than, say, Google Drive or Dropbox. (Read up on Privacy basics here if you didn’t know that and need to look up why.)

Mega Secure Cloud Storage

It is also worth mentioning that the MEGA secure storage platform seamlessly integrates with a wide range of devices, including NAS devices like QNAP and Synology, and has browser apps as well as standalone apps for all major operating systems. MEGA also offers MEGAcmd, a very neat command-line tool, to address the needs of IT professionals or programmers as well.

For marketers, MEGA Secure Cloud Storage offers a great alternative to much-hated Google Drive and Dropbox — both of which are infamous for their surveillance and lack of real control over user data. (To learn more about these concerns, read DuckDuckGo’s educational articles on Privacy and how to use alternatives to Google products in order to claim back your legitimate self-control over your data on the internet.) MEGA Secure Cloud Storage convincingly and masterfully addresses these concerns and offers an alternative option for all of us who want to be in charge ourselves (rather than any corporations, governments or faceless entities so wholly unrelated to us).

With MEGA Secure Cloud Storage, it is easy to store your Lead Magnet or Free Downloads material online. Simply link to your storage location, and your users and sign-up newcomers can download whatever free gift you’re offering during the onboarding process for your new users.

MEGA Secure Storage is a great offer from the New-Zealand-based startup that had been founded by Kim Dotcom when he came to the country in search for greener pastures.

MEGA offers a unique safety feature where encrypted files — that cannot even be accessed by the company’s tech people — can be safely shared across the internet, including unsafe (unencrypted) simple emails or mobile text messages if need be. This is achieved by cleverly dividing the stored file’s URL into a public part and a private-key part that can be disguised or can be sent separately for security reasons.

Give it a try and see for yourself how this works!

John McAffee Blasts Gold and Silver, Only Likes Cryptos as a Safe Haven

John McAffee despises gold and silver, favor Crypto coins onlyJohn McAffee has been appearing on a highly worthwhile video interview conducted by Daniela Cambone of Kitco. A man of very direct words, his take on how to operate in the Crypto space, which ones to use, and that you should now avoid Bitcoin-the-coin for its lack of privacy etc are great and well worth listening to. I have to admit that I do like John McAffee and much of his input.

McAffee is a great outside-the-box thinker, and let us not forget that he is an extremely successful tech entreprenuer as well. Although I am — probably like McAffee himself, if I am not mistaken — not a Windoze user myself, it is worth pointing out that millions of users pay for and rely on McAffee’s anti-virus and other safety solutions on a daily basis.

Only time will tell though whether or not his extreme anti-precious-metals approach, or his overall economic “wisdom”, will really be on-target. He has been wrong before (and wanted to ‘eat his private parts if BTC didn’t hit $100K’ by end-2018 or so — hope he did not deliver on that promise)…

When Kitco host Daniela Cambone pointed to the fact that many economists are speaking of a deflationary effect due to Wuhan virus or “Covid-19” lockdowns, McAffee broke out laughing, clapped his hands and literally lost it for a moment or two. Although I totally understand where he comes from, and that it’s correct on the surface to expect hyper-inflation in the longer term, we still need to note that, of course, the economy really is in a deflationary scenario currently and as a result of those lockdowns interrupting business, albeit a passing one that ultimately will lead to the kind of inflation McAffee actually meant. All that additional money printed or conjured out of thin air will be coming to hit us. No one can tell how long either of these opposites will run though and it’s next to impossible to forecast how long it’ll be before one or the other materializes or will have run its course.

So McAffee’s overall point to prepare for the worst seems to be a prudent one. Whether or not shunning precious metals and only relying on Crypto coins is the best approach, or if an intelligent mix of both asset classes is the better deal, remains to be seen over the next few years.John McAffee despises gold and silver, favor Crypto coins only
