All the best deals on fitness related products
A subreddit dedicated to finding the latest and best deals on any and all fitness related goods: clothes, gear, supplements, you name it. *Please post directly to the item on sale, not to a third party splash page. *Please designate the country of sale at some point in the post title. *No P2P sales. *No blogspam or affiliate links (unless you can offer the community a great deal on products).
In your experience as an affiliate, how hard is it to find a company that offers products/ services that perfectly fits your nice?
I've heard many affiliates get really upset when a company they've worked with doesn't continue a professional relationship. Since it can get pretty tough finding another company that fits your niche, how do you go about finding better companies to work with? submitted by Sam-BitIRA to Affiliatemarketing [link] [comments]
[Amazon Affiliates] If I have different Amazon associates accounts (for multiple locales) and link them in the ass. website, will my product affiliate links direct the user to the most fitting amazon store for his location, or is it still necessary to publish different links for each of the locales?
Asking because I'm new to this kind of marketing, and also because I used to see people posting links for several countries but nowadays I usually only see one link. submitted by airclass to Affiliatemarketing [link] [comments]
An Affiliate Discovery Tool: Product Market Fit??
Is there a market for an AI-backed affiliate discovery tool? submitted by ProdigiousX to Affiliatemarketing [link] [comments]
Imagine you're an advertiser (merchant). You input some data into a form, upload a list of keywords and competitors and hit "RUN"... and a list of hundreds of mega-relevant affiliate is generated from across the entire web.
Backgrund: I've been in the affiliate space for some years; managing programs for some pretty huge tech companies before launching an agency.
Challenge: For all my clients the single biggest challenge we face is Affiliate Discovery. Signing up to a network (be it AWIN, Rakuten, Webgains) doesn't often solve the problem. Most affiliates on those networks are incentive sites (cashback, discount code, voucher). And I invariably end up finding a large portion of my clients' affiliates from OUTSIDE the networks.
I try to avoid incentives at first to avoid non-incremental users, and focus on blogs, influencers and even businesses for cross-referral.
The Discovery Tool woud generate list of affiliate based on a broad range of relevancy criteria and show information like category, reach (traffic, subscribers) target audience/customer, region, contact information and draw from all over the web.
Would advertisers use this?
I created a Health/Fitness/Longevity related product listing, grid-style responsive design. Do Affiliate pages like this have any value?
submitted by batmanbury to Affiliatemarketing [link] [comments]
I created immortalinventory.com
mostly as a Ruby on Rails learning project. I'm interested in the kinds of products I listed and had fun writing the short blurbs below each picture. They mostly link to Amazon or other affiliates.
But, other than the learning I achieved, do pages like this have value? It seems like paying to drive traffic here would be overboard. Maybe all I can really do is create a corresponding FB and Twitter page and try to gain a following that way? (which I've done, but haven't seriously given them much attention). Though I strangely gained a handful of followers with little effort.
I guess my main question is, could a site with such shallow, but maybe sometimes humorous content still build up a following enough to provide some revenue? In your opinion, is it worth it to continue putting effort into this, or better to just be happy with what I learned, and move onto something different?
I'm considering just throwing this onto Flippa and seeing what people bid on it.
Any other criticisms much appreciated.
Any advice getting starting?
I'm going back to school and looking for about $42,000 for school. I am looking to start with affiliate marketing. Is there any way to make a decent amount before October with affiliate marketing to help offset this and have a passive income once I quit my job? submitted by Dhooy77 to Affiliatemarketing [link] [comments]
I'm very much into health and fitness. I'm looking for some recommendations getting starting with affiliate marketing. Any advice?

What is an MLM?
Multi-level marketing (MLM), also called pyramid selling, network marketing, and referral marketing, is a marketing strategy for the sale of products or services where the revenue of the MLM company is derived from a non-salaried workforce selling the company's products/services, while the earnings of the participants are derived from a pyramid-shaped or binary compensation commission system.
THIS LIST MAY CONTAIN COMPANIES THAT HAVE PREVIOUSLY HAD MLM BRANCH BUT MAY NO LONGER HAVE ONE. If you see a company and are not sure that it belongs on this list, please reach out. I have compiled this list from the sources listed at the bottom along with input from community members. This list may not be 100% accurate but the goal is to get it as close as possible. 31 - Bags

Face Masks - A List of Face Coverings for MFA
submitted by do_i_even_lift to malefashionadvice [link] [comments]
Aight -- I've been low-key kinda hyped for wearing masks during the whole epidemic and have started collecting them to accessorize with. To that point, I did my best to spin up a list (AKA spreadsheet) of brands that I've found that have some cool designs going on, as well as to list any causes (AFAIK) that they might be donating to/supporting.
- List here.
- Instagram here. -- UNDER CONSTRUCTION
- Blog/website** here. -- **UNDER CONSTRUCTION
All of this is still a work in progress, so I'm just slowly adding stuff as I go. DISCLAIMER
-- I am NOT
affiliated with any of the businesses, companies, or brands listed. They're just selling some masks I thought were cool that I wanted to share. I am not, and have no intention of, profiting from this in any way. Additionally
-- not all of these masks are up to CDC standards/specs
or classified as N95. Some are and/or have filter pockets though, and I might try to specifically flag those ones if I get the chance. TL;DR
- I tried my best to create a list of masks from a lot of "mainstream" fashion labels. Link
Please let me know if y'all have any comments or suggestions!
P.S.: I really hope this is in line with community guidelines mods plz be merciful. Edit:
Dang y'all -- it's so dope to see all the cordial discussions going on in the comments. Thanks for recommending masks and informing each other on other options and suggestions!! Coupla updates:
- There have been a TON of suggestions -- I stopped at about 100 brands last night, and have about 100 more that I still plan on adding to the main list. Brands I plan on adding can be found in the "pending" tab of the spreadsheet.
- I'm trying to make sure that I
strikethrough any items I'm finding that are "dead" (i.e.: Outdoor Voices), so this will not include items that are currently sold out and might come back, or items that have pre-orders and notifications available.
- The masks on this list aren't necessarily gonna be objectively better than any others AFAIK -- they're all just brands I found that I thought MFA (or anyone for that matter) might like.
- I haven't included eBay, Etsy, or FB Marketplace shops because that could become insanely overwhelming really quickly -- and there has been some self-promotion that I'm trying to avoid.
- To the non-US Redditors -- if there are any options specific to the EU that are suggested to me, I'll try to throw them up on a separate tab as time allows. I'm located in the US of A, so that was my primary focus.
- I'm still not affiliated with any of these brands -- I just wanna help people who like cool stuff cop cool stuff, and maybe direct people to giving towards causes they like in the process as well.
keep the discussions ongoing y'all -- it's so dope to see all the support and care in the sub going on!! Edit II:
Thanks for the continued input and suggestions y'all -- as of this edit, I think we've got about 150+ masks on the list. Several "quality of life" updates to the list:
- Freezing the top row and first 2 columns so that people can better track the brand(s) and row information that their viewing.
- I've created separate columns to try and include:
- If masks have filter pockets (I'll link to the filters on the site if they sell them)
- "Strap" types (elastic, over-ear, behind neck, etc.)
- If masks have adjustable "nose pieces"
- A running list of various causes/organizations for those who are just lookin' to donate, stay in the know, and/or inform others.
List is still going strong and we've got about 150+ brands at the moment, with about 100+ on the way. I'm still fleshing everything else out, but since this has gained a lot more traction and people have been asking about health concerns and CDC
standards, I'm slowly also trying to detail and make more information readily consolidated/available. I also might try to start doing/posting reviews on masks based on availability and (personal funds). Edit IV:
I've had some brands and users reaching out to me to show support, so I'm working to start up a blog and post information, updates, etc. regarding masks (and hopefully even COVID19 info) because people have been asking for recommendations and this has been useful in not only (hopefully) raising awareness for others, but in educating myself and learning more and more about masks, COVID, and current medical standards.
not a healthcare/medical professional, nor am I claiming to be, and this is in no way being done for profit or marketing -- it's just something that progressively spiraled out of a hobby of mine into a legitimate avenue for discussions and education, and I have no formal affiliations or stakes in any of the brands that I've listed/detailed. Starting off with an Instagram
for now while still putting together a blog/website (both currently under construction), but it should just serve to act as a more formal medium for what I'm doing here and on the spreadsheet
but with more write-ups, details, and even fit pics for different masks.
Please keep in mind: I'm a "one man shop" and this list may
or may not
have been made on a whim because I wanted to keep a running list of brands that I liked. So please keep the suggestions coming and I'll do my best to update/course correct accordingly. If you or someone you know personally owns/runs a brand, please PM me and I'll try to include it (once again: I am not including Etsy/eBay/FB/etc. shops because that's a slippery slope and harder to "track").
This is still an ongoing WIP, so thanks for the continued support and feedback! Please also make sure to checkout/show some love to some of the other lists that are out there:
Please reference the following links for information/details regarding health and safety standards with respect to buying, wearing, and even making masks:
- CDC (Center for Disease Control)
- WHO (World Health Organization)
My original list can still be found here
Instagram (WIP) can be found here
. -- UNDER CONSTRUCTION Please feel free to DM me with any questions/inquiries -- thanks y'all!
The best boxer briefs — Typical Contents
Preface: This is the first guide in a series from Typical Contents, a kind of “wirecutter for clothes”. It’s by the team behind Epochs, a now defunct menswear blog. We’ll be reviewing categories of clothing in hopes of finding the best item(s) in that category. This first post focuses on finding the best pair of boxer briefs. We bought all 13 pairs tested using our own money and there are no referral or affiliate links contained in this post. Over the past six months I've been on a personal crusade to find the best pair of mens boxer briefs. The reason? I'm investing the time and money now, upfront, so I never have to think about what underwear I buy ever again. During this quest I've researched over 20 pairs of underwear, and wore and washed 13 pairs over six months (and I will continue to test and update this guide accordingly). CDLP's Boxer Brief came out on top; they're light and comfortable, look great and can be had for a reasonable price when bought in multiples. submitted by typical-contents to malefashionadvice [link] [comments]
CDLP Boxer Brief CDLP’s Boxer Brief came out top in our testing. They were the most comfortable fit, perfectly hugging the wearer in a reassuring and supportive way. The unusual lyocell material was light, soft and has significant stretch. The material did have a slightly unusual sheen but this lessened on the body of the garment after a few washes (but remained on the waistband). The printed label on the inside is an excellent touch, avoiding the irritation of fabric labels. The waistband seam is moved off centre, preventing irritation in the small of the wearer’s back. The Portuguese manufacture oozes quality and means you’ll be supporting well paid workers. They are also durable: After six months of weekly wears and washes they show no issues.
An incredibly comfortable pair of underwear thanks to their light and airy lyocell material and lack of a fabric label. They're not quite so hard on the wallet in multipacks and subscriptions. Made in Portugal.
View on CDLP's website
£29 is expensive for a pair of underwear but its on par with others also made in developed countries. The price per pair can be brought down significantly by multipacks and CDLP's "Automatique" subscription service. A three pack costs £75, reducing the price per pair to £25 (a nine pack reduces the price per pair to £21.60 but costs an eye watering £195). Combining the three pack with a three month subscription reduces the price to £59 every three months. This reduces the price per pair to a relatively reasonable £19.
We were also impressed by CDLP’s presentation. The garments themselves exude a premium but understated feeling which is preferable to the brash loudness found in a lot of mens underwear. The bright yellow box the underwear arrives in was not only visually arresting, but made the unboxing feel special. It was reminiscent of a Mr Porter or Apple box opening experience.
This is the best pair of underpants I've ever owned. In the entire rotation this is the only pair I really looked forward to putting on. If you only want to own a single model of boxer brief, these should be it.
What we’d like to see improved As CDLP’s founders themselves say, they “are not perfect”. We'd like more transparency around their factory in Portugal, more transparency about their lyocell material, its environmental impact, and manufacturing process. We’d also like to see some sort of recycling/disposal programme where old or worn out pairs can be sent back to the company for recycling alá Patagonia and others.
Sunspel Stretch Cotton Trunk The Sunspel Stretch Cotton Trunk is just as comfortable as our top pick, the CDLP Boxer Brief. They have an excellent, supportive and flattering fit, and conform well to the wearer's body. Unfortunately it does have a fabric label, which we found annoying. Where this pair differs from our top pick is the material, which is a more traditional cotton/elastane mix. It is thicker and more substantial feeling than CDLP's lyocell offering but we prefer CDLP's lighter feeling material. The quality and durability on display from Sunspel is outstanding, and we expect this pair to last a very long time. Do not confuse these Stretch Cotton Trunks with Sunspel's Superfine Cotton Trunks, which are 100% cotton and we did not favour in our testing (they are also more expensive).
A well crafted pair of underwear that is comfortable and will last a long time. The material is more substantial than our top pick, but was less breathable and light feeling. Made in Portugal.
View on Sunspel's website
Sunspel do not offer multipacks or any kind of subscription service meaning what you see is what you get in terms of pricing, barring sales. All in all Sunspel has a nearly as compelling offering as our top pick for the same price (or more expensive if you take multipacks and subscription discounts into account) as our top pick. But purchasers will not be disappointed with the quality and fit on display from this heritage British brand.
UNIQLO Mens Supima Cotton Boxer Brief For the more fiscally minded there is the UNIQLO Mens Supima Cotton Boxer Brief. They have an excellent, close fit and were almost (but not quite) as comfortable as our more expensive top picks. We were honestly surprised at how close they came though. The construction and quality doesn't feel as robust as our top picks and don't expect them to last nearly as long as the pairs made in Portugal. We wish they didn't have a fabric label, although it is at least a small one.
Nearly (but not quite) as comfortable as our top picks, but there are significant sacrifices made in durability, quality and—arguably—origin. Made in Sri Lanka.
Buy on UNIQLO's website
There was some slight confusion between different models with identical names on UNIQLO's website. Likely they are similar models from different factories that changed season to season. Perhaps this is a hazard of fast fashion. Speaking of which, there is some debate around the ethics used in UNIQLO's factories, despite the company’s claims. Bear in mind that this is a rock-bottom priced piece of clothing made in Sri Lanka, so ethically minded shoppers should probably steer clear.
Why you should trust us We are the team behind the (now defunct) menswear website Epochs. Epochs examined the cultural and social history of menswear and produced some well received articles in the menswear community (e.g. Epochs Field Guide to Nautical Clothing, Epochs Field Guide to Camoflauge). We pride ourselves on our in-depth approach to research and focus on good design.
Luke McDonald is a fashion writer and stylist at London-based Thread. He has written many articles about menswear and styled a wide array of fashion shoots at Thread. Patrick McDonald is a designer based in Vancouver and has been a Muji underwear enthusiast for many years.
I (Andrew Emerson) am a designer in London. Finding the best pair of underwear became a mission of mine when I ended up with a drawer full of identical boxer briefs from a clothing subscription service in 2019. The consistency was nice but the quality was poor, so I decided I would replace my dozens of pairs of this brand's boxer brief with another model.
How we tested Researching began online. We looked at a number of Reddit threads on malefashionadvice (thread 1, thread 2) and buyitforlife (thread 1, thread 2). We also looked at The Wirecutter’s “Best Boxer brief for Men” and “Best Travel Underwear 2020” articles as well. The Strategist had three relevant articles: ”The Best Men’s Underwear on Amazon, According to Hyperenthusiastic Reviewers”, ”What’s the Best Men’s Underwear?”, and ”What Are the Best Boxer Briefs for Men?”.
We also looked at brands that we had previous experience with, and that had permanent basics collections such as Everlane, Sunspel, ARKET and UNIQLO.
We looked to get a spread on different materials (cotton, cotton/elastane, wool, synthetics), different origins (Europe, Middle East, and Asia), and price points. Finally we purchased a shortlist of these using our own money.
We created a set of criteria that all pairs were judged against (see “What to look for” below). All purchased pairs were put in rotation for several months and notes taken on first and subsequent wears. We tracked the different pairs, stored notes, and ranked them using a Notion database. Finally we compiled our findings into this article. We intend to update this page periodically as we try new pairs (keep and eye on our changelog for updates) as there are other pairs we would still like to try.
What to look for in a pair of boxer briefs We looked for a pair of underwear that was suitable for every day wear and most of life’s occasions; work, sleeping in, date night, running to catch a bus, dropping kids off, lounging around your apartment (but not for going to the gym or exercising in, you will need specialty underwear for that).
Boxer briefs only: We looked specifically at boxer briefs so that discounts more loose fitting boxers, and legless varieties like briefs. Boxer briefs were chosen because they are more supportive and comfortable than their cousins, and are flattering without being overly revealing. They are a modern, balanced undergarment for men.
Availability: Garments should be widely available and be almost always in stock. We discounted most high street labels because they have many different models that change frequently. We preferred those that were underwear specialists, or had a permanent collection of underwear.
Colours: We tested everything in black. This was to have a fair comparison, but also we prefer an understated look. It’s also more practical and won’t discolour.
Length and rise: Is the pair long or short in the leg? High or low rise? A balance is important here, but generally we want a regular rise combined with a slightly shorter leg length. Longer leg length can look antiquated, but a very short leg length can be uncomfortable and veer into hot pants territory (that’s bad). A slightly shorter leg can be flattering.
Fit: How tight or loose the pair is. Being boxer briefs, we are looking for a closer fitting garment, without being tight. The fit or cut is also a key factor when considering aesthetics. The fit should be flattering to the shape of the wearer, but bear in mind that it won’t make you look fit if you’re not.
Material: The main body will be some combination of cotton, wool, lyocell, elastane (spandex for our American compatriots). We found about 5-10% elastane is necessary for a comfortable, slightly stretchy fit. Without elastane, the garments had no give, weren’t fitted enough, and were generally less comfortable (they also tended to ride up the leg more). The waistband is generally a synthetic material with a percentage of elastane. The material of the waistband wasn’t as important as how it fit and felt (see below for more on waistbands).
Waistband: Two things to consider — softness and width. It should have a soft handle and be wide enough to spread the load. It also shouldn’t be too tight, or turn over easily.
Keyhole: Pretty much the only “feature” that mens boxer briefs can have; does the garment have a keyhole or not? We do not have a strong preference; slightly preferring without for simplicity. However it was not a factor that was taken into account when making our picks.
Durability: How does the garment hold up in day to day wear? How does it cope with being washed again and again? Despite what Tom Ford says, we don’t believe in throwing out our underwear after six months. We believe underwear should be able to stand up to being worn and washed at least once per week for around twelve months. We will update this guide as we continue to wash and wear our top picks.
Label/tag: Underwear should not have tags, which are annoying and itchy. Labels/tags printed directly on the garment are strongly preferred.
Price: Price can vary significantly, but we found there are generally a low and high price bracket, mostly depending on where the garment is made (see “origin” below).
Origin: Where the garment is manufactured. Today’s shoppers are much more conscientious about the ethics of their clothing. We gave preference to garments manufactured in developed countries and made in ethical, transparent ways.
Multipacks and subscription: Often a good way to reduce the price per unit. Subscription services are a great way to build up your underwear collection and of injecting fresh pairs into your rotation.
The competition The ARKET Pima Cotton Trunks had too narrow a waistband which caused pressure on the wearer's hips. The tag is very long and caused irritation. They were also more expensive than our budget pick, which took them out of the running for us.
Although similar in many ways to our top pick (particularly the excellent lyocell material), the CDLP Boxer Trunk offers a more aggressive cut and a lower rise than their Boxer Brief cousins. However we found the leg length overly short and the cuffs of the legs more loose fitting than our top pick, leading to a overall less secure feeling fit. Some people may prefer the more sporty look, and the pair could be described as more flattering than any of our picks, but for everyday wear we prefer the CDLP Boxer Brief.
The Everlane Boxer Brief is a comfortable and all round good pair of underwear. They fit well, are the right length, and look good. The printed tag is a great touch as well. They fit was good, but were ever so slightly on the loose side in medium and weren't as flattering as the rest of our picks. The issue with Everlane's entry was the price. At £14 they are nearly three times more expensive than our budget pick for about the same experience. And although our top pick is priced at £29, they can be had for as low as £19 (and they're made in Portugal, not Sri Lanka). Shipping to the UK was also very expensive at £12. Overall they are a Very Good pair of boxer briefs but they're too expensive to be a budget pick and don't quite reach the excellence of our top picks.
The Rozenbroek Organic Bamboo Jersey Trunk is the only pair we wore that was manufactured in the UK, and is well priced for such a claim. Unfortunately we found the waistband very uncomfortable. It was too stiff, tight and thick. The edges were also slightly sharp and dug into the wearer’s hips. The bamboo material was comfortable, stretchy and light but Rozenbroek don't show the exact material breakdown on their website or on the garment itself.
Saxx is a brand well known and liked on the internet, featuring on many favourites lists. We tried the Saxx Undercover Trunk and found the cotton/modal/elastane material light, airy and supportive. One of Saxx's primary selling points is their "ballpark" technology, which is designed to cup the wearer’s genitals. We found this to be somewhat uncomfortable in practice though, with the fabric edge of the "pouch" rubbing annoyingly against the skin. The Vancouver, Canada based brand also isn't transparent about where it makes its product, which appear to be Chinese in origin. This lack of transparency made us somewhat uncomfortable, and £21 is on the steep side for China made underwear. The branding and marketing is also slightly over the top and in your face, especially compared to the understated approach of our picks. Finally Saxx is quite difficult to get outside of Canada and the US, and we had to resort to specialty outdoor shops to purchase ours in the UK.
The baggiest fit we tested belongs to the Smartwool Men's Merino Sport 150 Boxer Brief, which took them out of the running for us. This was a shame, because the merino wool construction was soft and light. £35 is also too much to be charging for a pair of underwear made in Vietnam.
The leg length was a little too long on the Stór Bamboo Boxer Brief and as a result they don't flatter the wearer. The bamboo material mix is soft and breathable and conforms well to the body and feels comparable to the lyocell used in our top pick. The origin (Turkey) is a little suspicious as it isn't listed anywhere on the website or the product. I had to reach out to the company to find out where they were made.
Being 100% cotton means the Sunspel Superfine Cotton Trunks don’t have much give, which created problems when worn. When combined with slightly too tight leg openings, it meant they tended to ride up over time, eventually leading to a nappy like appearance which then had to be readjusted. The tag is also a little annoying. Having said all that the waistband was soft and comfortable, and they are constructed well.

Arbitrary list of popular lights - Summer Solstice 2020 edition
submitted by Zak to flashlight [link] [comments]
In honor of Summer Solstice for the northern hemisphere, I've made an updated list of popular lights. Today is a couple days after (sorry!) the day you're least
likely to need a flashlight north of the equator, but it increases every day after so it's a good time to buy a flashlight.
Because a definitive buyer's guide is too hard, I've made an arbitrary list of popular lights you should consider if you're shopping for a light. There is no best flashlight, so this is not the last word in what's good, but a list of lights that are often bought or recommended here with a touch of my own opinion thrown in. Exclusion from this list doesn't mean a light isn't good. To search more lights by their attributes, try http://flashlights.parametrek.com/index.html
Where possible, official manufacturer URLs are linked here. Sometimes the manufacturer offers good deals through direct orders, sometimes vendors have the best prices. There are coupon codes available
that apply to many of the lights listed. I'm hosting a version of this list
on my own site with affiliate links because a few people have asked for a way to give me a kickback.
Shipping/availability may be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, items shipped from China are often taking 2 months to arrive. Supply chains and warehouse stock also appear to be disrupted as well, so you may have to be more patient than usual if you want certain flashlights, chargers, and batteries.
For those in a hurry
If you don't want to learn much, just get one of these.
All of the lights in this section come with a rechargeable battery and have a charger built in to the light. The battery will be a standard size you can buy online from third parties, and the charger will use USB as its power source, though some options do use a special cable. Aside from the Catapult, all have very good color quality compared to the average LED flashlight, improving your ability to see details.
- Wurkkos FC11 - a general-use light for $30. USB-C charging, but it needs to use an A-to-C cable. There's a strong magnet in the tailcap, and a pocket clip for carry. A 25mm (1 inch) diameter and 120mm (4.7 inches) long is suitable for larger pants pockets. 18650 battery.
- Skilhunt M150 with high-CRI LH351D LED option - a smaller light with many characteristics similar to the FC11, but a smaller (14500 size) battery and magnetic charging connector. This light can also use AA batteries, both rechargeable and disposable, but the built-in charger only works with a 14500. $40, and sometimes available on Amazon, but not always with the right LED, which is important since the color and beam quality of the other options is poor. 21mm (0.82") at its widest point and 84mm (3.3") long.
- Armytek Wizard Pro Nichia 144A - a combination handheld flashlight, headlamp, and magnetic work light with high output and excellent color quality. An 18650 battery is included, and it uses USB/magnetic charging, which is a bit slow, but convenient otherwise. It's $90, but try coupon code "reddit" for a discount. I've linked Killzone Flashlights here rather than the manufacturer because the manufacturer's customer service is rather poor, and Killzone's is good. European buyers should consider Nkon and coupon code "AT25%off".
- Acebeam EC35 II, Killzone special edition with SST-20. I swear I'm not trying to favor Killzone here, but this one is a dealer exclusive. If you're thinking of a handheld light to accompany a pistol, this is a great option because the tailswitch is high-only with other functions on the sideswitch. If you think you want a single-mode light, you probably want this instead. USB-C charging (A-to-C again), and it's a USB powerbank (C-to-C works for this). $77 with bundled 18650 battery, $67 if you bring your own battery.
- Sofirn SP36 (Anduril/LH351D version) - with three 18650 batteries and a $71 price tag, this is a larger, more powerful, and longer-running light than the others in this section. It has USB-C (A-to-C only) charging. If you need to light up a room for a long time, or light up a field, this is up to the task.
- Thrunite Catapult V6 in neutral white - for seeing far away. You can spot large objects with this at 750m, and see in reasonable detail at half that. The color quality here is only average, but neutral white will look a little more natural, and have less visible backscatter than cool white. MicroUSB charging and a 26650 battery is included. $75, but coupon code "20%" does exactly what you think.
These are at the top of the list not because they're the best
in some objective sense, but because they're easy to own and use, and easy to buy. They score well on most measure flashlight nerds care about while also being suitable for non-enthusiasts.
About specs and considerations
Moved to the wiki due to character limit
Everyday Carry Lights
These are selected for pocketability first and performance second, but most of the larger options are perfectly adequate for house/cacamping/etc... uses. This section excludes right-angle designs that double as headlamps, but many people do use those for pocket carry, so see that section as well.
- Nitecore Tube - a brighter, variable output, USB-charging replacement for button-cell keychain lights with shortcuts to high and low modes from off. $10
- Rovyvon Aurora A3x (Nichia 219C version) - neutral tint, 90 CRI, 450 lumens (briefly), USB charging, under 20g weight. Non-removable battery, so this will eventually wear out. Other Nichia Rovyvons are similar, offering different body materials, sizes, and sometimes colored LEDs on the sides. $33
- Lumintop IYP07 - a 1xAAA tailswitch option with three modes (5, 40, 130 lumens), three colors (black, silver, pink), and two LED options, of which only the neutral white, high-CRI Nichia 219C is worth considering. $22
- Lumintop IYP365 Nichia 219C - 2xAAA, 90+ CRI (Nichia version only) and neutral white. This is a longer IYP07. Not as bright as a Ti4, but light quality is often more important for being able to see clearly. $19
- Fenix LD02 2.0 (warm white version) - 1xAAA, tailswitch, warm white, high-CRI, and a UV secondary. 1 lumen low, 70 lumens high. $30
- Fenix LD05 2.0 (warm white version) - 2xAAA, 100lm max, and the same features as the above. $40
- Thrunite Ti4 - 2xAAA - Neutral white available. Titanium sometimes available. High output for this form factor. $20
- Nitecore MT06MD - 2xAAA, 90+ CRI, neutral white, and still shipping with the Nichia 219B as far as I know. Similar to the IYP365 on paper, but many people prefer the tint of the 219B over the 219C. $32
- Skilhunt M150 with high-CRI LH351D - this is the AA/14500 version of the M200, without the mode customization feature. It's only offered bundled with a 14500. The onboard charging works with any 14500, but won't charge NiMH AA inside the light. There's low-voltage protection for both battery types, so unprotected 14500s are OK. $40
- Thrunite T10 II - a side-switch light supporting both AA and 14500 Li-ion batteries with shortcuts from off to high and low and a magnetic tailcap. Neutral white available and recommended. $20
- Zebralight SC53c - 90+ CRI, warm-neutral white, e-switch with shortcuts to low, medium and high with several sub-levels for each. $57
- Thrunite Archer 1A - a dual-switch 1xAA light that can also use 14500. 200 lumens with AA, about 450 with 14500. $28
- Sofirn SP10S - 1xAA/1x14500, 90+ CRI with a Samsung LH351D LED and black, blue, or red body color. Slightly awkward UI with a long-press to turn off, but it may be worth it for the low price and high color quality. $16
- Lumintop Tool AA 219C - 1xAA/1x14500 and a 90 CRI Nichia 219C. There's a Cree XP-L version of this that isn't so compelling, so I've linked Illumn rather than the manufacturer, but it may be available elsewhere. 22
- Acebeam TK16 (SST-20 version only) - 95+ CRI, neutral white, tail e-switch with shortcuts to lowest, highest, and last-used, plus two mode groups so you can choose between sensible runtimes and impressing your friends with the 1250 lumen peak output. 0.5 lumen moonlight. Battery included, but you'll need a separate charger. If you were considering the Olight S1 line, get this instead. Also available in copper. $55
- Wowtac W1 - a basic light using a 16340 (CR123A won't work well, if at all) and USB charging. It only seems to come in cool white at the moment. Why is it here? Because it costs $20 on US Amazon and should have Wowtac's usual solid built quality and accurate specs.
- Thrunite T1 (neutral white suggested) - 1x18350 (included), MicroUSB charging, magnetic tailcap, 1500 lumen max mode with a ramping UI for medium levels. $40, usually
This category is so popular it gets subcategories. If you're looking for a lot of power and runtime that's still possible to carry in most pants pockets, this is your battery.
A tailswitch controls power, a sideswitch changes brightness. The ease of explaning the UI makes these perfect to hand out to others.
- Eagletac DX30LC2 - slimmer than most 18650 lights, with a unique take on the dual-switch interface: it always starts on high, unless the mode switch is held, in which case it starts on low. Longer throw than most, neutral white available from some dealers. $75
- Thrunite TC12 - essentially a TN12 with USB charging, a thermal sensor to limit temperature, low-voltage protection and a battery included. $56
- Sofirn SP31 v2.0 - efficient driver and XP-L HI emitter for more throw than most lights in this class. Cool white only, unfortunately, but a good value with the features of the Fenix PD32 at half the price. $37 with battery and charger on US Amazon. $21 without accessories on Sofirn's own site, but shipping from China is likely to take more than a month.
- Acebeam EC35 II (Killzone special edition) This has a bit different UI than the others here. The tailswitch is alawys high, with half-press for momentary. The side siwtch is an electronic switch with shortcuts from off to low, last-used, and high. This offers versatility in combination with dead-simple reliability under stress. USB-C charging (note: requires A-to-C cable; does not charge from C-to-C), optional battery, and it's a USB powerbank (powerbank function does work with C-to-C). The Nichia 219C is a bit cooler with a fairly balanced beam profile, and the SST-20 is warmer with some more throw. $67 by itself, or $77 with a battery. $10 less for the 219C.
Electronic switches enable shortcuts from off to useful modes - usually lowest, highest, and last-used.
- Zebralight SC64c LE - the SC6x series has long been an EDC favorite for their compact size, high efficiency, great low modes, and a user interface that was well ahead of the competition when it came out. Now, many would prefer ToyKeeper's Anduril firmware as used on the FW3A and D4v2, but Zebralight has added some configuration options that should keep most users happy. The 828 lumen max output sounds low next to today's hot-rods, but lights this size can't sustain more than that for longer than 5 minutes without burning the user's hand. $80
- Zebraligh SC64w HI - the above, trading some color quality for more output and throw. $80
- Thrunite TC15 - like the Neutron in form, but trades battery flexibility for 2300 lumens turn-on output and replaces the ramping UI with fixed modes. $56
- Skilhunt M200 (high-CRI LH351D option recommended) - Were you considering the Olight S2R? Consider this instead. Magnetic charging, but with a standard 18650. Optional high-CRI neutral white LH351D. Magnetic tailcap. Magnetic charging. The linked version even has configurable mode groups, and you can decide whether to pay extra to get it with a battery. Pending due to lack of reviews, but Skilhunt stuff is usually solid. $43 without a battery, $51 with.
- Wurkkos FC11 - 18650 EDC light, high-CRI Samsung LH351D, battery included, magnetic tailcap, USB-C charging, e-switch with the option of fixed modes or ramping. Wurkkos is affiliated with Sofirn, and this seems very much like some SP36S parts found their way into an SC31. Early versions had some UI wierdness, but the UI has been revised and is now very good. The tint could stand to be better, but the color rendering is very good, and it's $30
Other by use case
Right-angle lights and headlamps
If I could have only one portable light, it would be a right-angle light that functions as both an everyday carry light and a headlamp. Some lights in this form factor also offer a magnetic tailcap, allowing them to act as mountable area lights.
- Zebralight H53c - All the Zebralight goodness described above for the SC64c LE, but in a right-angle, 1xAA form factor. The Cree XP-L2 may make a less attractive beam than the Samsung LH351D, but most people report Zebralight's optics smooth it out well. H53Fc for a frosted lens for a very even beam. This one even comes with a pocket clip, and the headband does not have the top strap the 18650 versions do. $59
- Thrunite TH20 - 1xAA headlamp available in neutral white with infinite ramping and shortcuts from off to low/high. $30
- Acebeam H40 with 95 CRI Luminus SST-20. This is very similar to the TH20, but trades having a good sub-lumen low for high CRI. It would be nice to have both in the same light, but for that, you'll need a soldering iron. $35
- Fenix HL10 - a 1xAAA headlamp that weighs 40 grams with a lithium battery. It's here so /ultralight doesn't feel left out, as I would recommend something with a larger battery for a primary headlamp. This would make a good backup. Two is one. $30
- Nitecore NU25 - the other ultralight option. Sealed Li-ion pouch cell, so no carrying spares, and it's effectively disposable when the battery wears out. The primary emitter is cool white and low-CRI, but there's a high-CRI secondary. Some sacrifices must be made for a weight of 28g. $36
- Thrunite TH01 - 1x18350 battery dedicated headlamp, 1500 lumens burst (450 stable). This is a USB-charged option without going to the larger 18650 battery. $40
All of these use one 18650 battery.
- Skilhunt H04 - the popular version has a honeycomb TIR optic for a diffuse beam pattern. A reflector for more throw and a version with a reflector and a flip-out diffuser are sometimes available. Uses a timed stepdown. Available in neutral white. Magnetic tailcap. $40, roughly
- Wowtac A2/A2S - another budget option, this time with a reflector. Both come with an 18650 that has a USB charge port right on the battery, but can be used with any 18650. The A2S also offers neutral white, which I recommend. $20/$30
- Zebralight H600w IV - very compact, neutral white, great efficiency, well-regarded user interface, boost driver. What's not to love? The pocket clip isn't so good. $89
- Zebralight H600Fd IV - the above with 90+ CRI, a frosted lens for a more diffuse beam and a slightly cooler neutral tint that's a close match for the midday sun. $89
- Zebralight H600Fc IV - the H600Fd, but with warmer tint, like the late afternoon sun. $89
- Zebralight H604d - the H600Fd with no reflector and a clear lens for a very floody, perfectly even beam. $89
- Zebralight H604c - if you've read the above, this needs no explanation. $89
- YLP Panda 2M CRI - 1x18650 dedicated headlamp, with high-CRI neutral white LH351Ds. Not the most efficient, but the light quality is great and with an 18650 battery, most people won't mind. $38
- Thrunite TH10 V2 - over 300m throw in a right-angle light for those who need it. USB charging, and battery included. A bit more bulky than most. $60
- Armytek Wizard Pro Nichia 144A - this light was my idea. After reviewing the Wizard Pro XHP50, I convinced them to put a 90 CRI, 4500K Nichia 144A in it. It took a couple years, but they did, and it is glorious. The Wizard Pro is the most versatile light I own, and the one I'd keep if I could only keep one. The first batch of these had some battery safety issues (broken low-voltage protection), but that's fixed now. I suggest buying from a dealer like Killzone or Nkon, and checking for coupon codes for those dealers because Armytek's customer service and shipping are questionable. $90
- Acebeam H30 - 21700 battery (also compatible with 18650), USB-C charging, powerbank function, 4000 lumen main output with optional neutral white, red secondary, choice between a green secondary, UV secondary, or a high-CRI Nichia 219C secondary. Boost driver for stable output when the battery is low or cold. Many people would consider this too heavy for a headlamp, but it weighs a lot less than a motorcycle helmet. Noncompliant USB-C behavior requires charging with an A-to-C cable. $120
- Fenix HP30R - 2x18650 batteries in a remote holder that can be worn under a jacket. This is probably the most reliable battery option for extreme cold environments as the batteries can be kept warm. The battery case features USB charging and can be used as a USB powerbank. There are flood and spot emitters, which make 750 and 1000 lumens respectively, and can be used together for 1750 lumens. This is the heaviest headlamp on the list by far, but much of the weight is in the battery pack. $130
These are suitable for first responders and possibly members of the military in combat roles. The focus is on simple operation, reliability and a good way to make sure the light starts on high.
- Acebeam L30 - 4000 lumens from a single 18650 or 21700 (included). Neutral white available and recommended. High-CRI secondary emitter optional. Not the prettiest light, but there's a lot of it, and enough thermal mass to sustain it for a few minutes. Stable output without overheating is 2000 lumens. Forward-clicky tailswith is always max output, but the side switch has shortcuts to low and last-used. USB charging. $110
- Eagletac GX30L2 Pro - for those who want a better Streamlight Stinger. 2x18650. Neutral white with XHP35 HI recommended for more natural color and throw distance. Onboard charging. Neutral white optional. The included battery pack is just two 18650s in series. It says not to charge standard 18650s, but there's no technical reason for that, and it is reported to work. Protected cells recommended. $155
- Skylumen M2Rvn - about that neutral white... and it gains over 100m of throw in the process by switching to the XHP35 HI. This is a modified Olight M2R with different warranty terms from the original, so read those carefully. $120
- Eagletac T25V - a 21700-powered duty light with USB-C charging and battery included. Twist the head for output selection between three configurable levels with the light on or off, so it can be left locked in high. 2600 lumens and 214m throw with the XHP70.2, or 1640 lumens and about 400m throw with the XHP35 HI. The latter emitter in neutral white does the most to make this light stand out from its peers, if you can find it that way. This is a good alternative if the Olight M2R Pro looks appealing or you missed out on the Acebeam T36.$96
Most lights on the list are easy to carry, with performance constrained by size and thermal mass as a result. After all, the best light is the one you have. Here are lights to bring when you know
you'll be using them.
Turn night into day, but not necessarily very far away
- Thrunite TC20 - 1x26650, 1xXHP70.2. This is still small enough for a jacket pocket, but has a bigger battery than most EDC lights, and a spectacular 180 lm/W efficiency on medium. USB charging. Ugly tint, even when neutral. 3800 lumen max, and more efficient than most competitors in all modes. $72 with standing "20%" coupon code
- Acebeam X45 - 4x18650, not pretty even in neutral white, but it makes 18,000 lumens. $180
- Sofirn SP36 BLF edition - 3x18650, 4xLH351D, Anduril firmware, USB-C charging. Be careful, there's another version of this light with Cree XP-L2 emitters, which are ugly. There's currently a bundle with Sofirn batteries on US Amazon for a very small additional cost, but these usually don't come with batteries. 90+ CRI, 5500+ lumens, 350m FL1 throw. This replaces the BLF Q8 in the list due to the LEDs offered and USB-C charging, though the Q8 is easier to disassemble for those interested in modifications. $50
What's that over there? WAY
over there? The hotspots of these lights tend to be too focused for comfortable use up close, though using a diffuser is an option. These tend to be most useful for search and rescue, boating, and the like.
FL1 throw is the distance at which large objects can be detected in clear air. At half that distance, there's usually enough illumination to see clearly, though with more extreme throwers, the distances may be so great as to require binoculars to see clearly even during the day. Throwers have visible backscatter from the atmosphere even in clear air, which may obstruct the user's view of the target. Warmer color temperatures tend to have less.
- Wowtac A4v2 - 1x26650, MicroUSB charging, 1982 lumens and 564m throw according to zeroair. The A4v2 isn't quite a pure thrower; it's more versatile than that. Boost driver for near-full output even when the battery is low and better performance in the cold - that's rare to see in the A4's price/performance category. $50, but check for coupons
- Thrunite Catapult V6 - 1x26650, MicroUSB charging. This is the Wowtac A4, but with a more expensive shell and a bigger reflector for more throw. $60 with a coupon code
- Acebeam T27 - 1x21700/18650. This is like a thrower version of the L30 duty light above, though its charging is USB-C, and oddly, it can act as a USB powerbank. Boost driver for full output on a low battery. 5000K recommended. 1180m FL1 throw. Noncompliant USB-C behavior requires charging with an A-to-C cable. $140
- Acebeam T28 - it's a T27 with a bigger head and even more throw. There's not much more to say about it than that. $160
- Thrunite TN42 - 4x18650, 1550m FL1 throw advertised, 1700m observed by reviewers. $160
Some throw, some flood... probably a lot
- Acebeam K30GT - a hybrid, but leaning toward the throw side of things with 1km. 5500 lumens, but not for long due to heat. 3x18650. $160
- Acebeam K65 - probably the original dedomed XHP70.2 version. 1km and 6200lm, but much bigger than the K30GT with 4x18650 batteries, giving it the ability to say bright longer without overheating. $195
- Imalent MS18 - proprietary battery pack, 18xXHP70.2. Heat pipes. Fan cooling. 100,000 lumens. 1350m FL1 throw. This thing weighs 5 pounds, isn't waterproof, sounds like a jet engine, and I trust Imalent's build quality about as far as I can throw an MS18, not to mention the price. It makes no sense for nearly any practical purpose, but it's the brightest flashlight you can buy, so it goes on the list. $500
Stuff that doesn't fit somewhere else goes here.
- Pelican 3315 CC - 3xAA, 130 lumens, intrinsically safe. The only reason to get this is because an intrinsically safe or explosion proof light is required. This is the least bad option with a warm color temperature and high CRI. $55
- Viltrox L116T - a 95 CRI, adjustable color temperature LED panel intended to be used as a camera light with adjustable output from about 200 lumens to 1000 lumens. Also works great as fixed lighting with a DC power supply, or a portable area light with a Sony NP-F camera battery. A battery holder and a bit of soldering will allow it to run on 2x18650. $34
- Viltrox VL200T - The 2500 lumen version of the L116T. DC power supply included. Radio-based remote control. $65
- Litufoto F12 (AKA Viltrox FA-D10) - A smartphone-sized LED panel with 96+ CRI, adjustable color temperature, USB-C power (note: noncompliant, A-to-C only), and sealed Li-ion battery. 800 lumens on high with 80 minute runtime, 70 lumens lowest, adjusts in 5% increments. 65% output available continuously without draining the battery while plugged in. This would even be viable as floody EDC flashlight if it wasn't for the obnoxiously long press for on/off. $48 on US Amazon
Enthusiast lights can be subject to a bit of a flavor of the month phenomenon, and this section isn't necessarily going to try to include them all. What you'll find here are enthusiast lights with some staying power. There will probably be an Emisar D4 of some description this time next year, but not necessarily the latest new FW variant or whatever's currently trendy from Nightwatch.
- Lumintop FW3A - this light was designed by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts. It's unusual in having a tail e-switch, while most others position it on the side. It has an open source firmware with continuous brightness adjustment and lots of options. 2800 lumen max (briefly), about 800 lumens relatively sustainable (thermally regulated). There are currently five LED options, and I would recommend most people go with one of the high-CRI options. Luminus SST-20 for more throw and less heat, but the Nichia 219C may have more pleasant tint. Caution: this light requires an unprotected, 10A rated battery and can set things that get too close to its lens on fire. This has fairly inefficient electronics, but the large capacity of the 18650 battery makes that a minor issue for a lot of use cases. There are titanium, copper, etc... versions for more money. Build quality and reliability may be a bit questionable, but these pack in a lot of features for the money. Several larger versions with higher output exist, but the original still makes the most sense to this list's maintainer. $40
- Lumintop FW1A - an FW3A with fewer emitters (one) and more reflector (again, one, in place of the FW3A's TIR optic). Less output, more throw, less demanding on the battery. $40
- Emisar D4v2 - every flashlight geek's favorite way to burn a hole in their pocket has been upgraded. It now comes with colored aux LEDs that can serve as a decoration, locator, and battery status indicator. Some versions of this light can exceed 4000 output at power-on, though efficiency is not one of its goals, even at lower levels. Not to be outdone by the FW3A, there are eight LED options, from which I'd suggest the 4000K, 95+ CRI SST-20 to most people. Optional extras include a tailcap magnet, steel bezel, pocket clip, 18350 and 18500 battery tubes, and different optics. There are exposed programming headers on the battery side of the driver for those who want to modify the firmware, or just keep it up to date with ToyKeeper's latest revisions. That's right, it's 2019 and you can get software updates for your flashlight. $45 or a bit more from the US warehouse for those wanting faster shipping.
- Noctigon KR4 - This is almost a tail-e-switch D4, but it uses a variable linear driver that provides a bit better efficiency and more stable output as the battery drains as well as allowing brightness adjustment without PWM and enabling the use of ultra-low-voltage LEDs like the Nichia E21A. If you were thinking about the Lumintop FW4A, this is likely a better option. SST-20 4000K would probably still be my pick here because the E21A doesn't seem to play all that well with the Carclo quad optics. $55, and often stocked in the US warehouse.
- Convoy S2+/219C - Popular light for DIY and modification. Many parts are available from the manufacturer and Mountain Electronics. S2+ linked. S3 is similar, but with a removable steel bezel. S6 has a deeper reflector for a narrower spill and longer throw. Recently updated with the high-CRI Nichia 219C and Luminus SST-20 LEDs, which are strongly recommended over the prior options. 219C 4000K will probably make the largest number of people happy. "Body color" is actually drive current. More 7135 chips means more power, which means more output, shorter battery life, and more heat. x6 is a reasonable choice that should never get too hot to hold. x3 or x4 for giving to people who will waste the battery. x8 for max output. Convoy will assemble other combinations of compatible parts not listed in their store - just contact them and ask. $15
Jacket pocket, maybe
- Noctigon KR1 - Do you miss the Emisar D1? This is a jacket pocket light can reach nearly 700m FL1 throw with certain emitter options. It's the only light I've ever seen offer a high-CRI Cree XP-L HI, which in this case is an incandescent-like 2850K. $50
- Convoy C8 SST-20 - 1x18650. 4000K and 7135x8 will produce the best results for most users. Over 4000K is low-CRI for the SST-20, and yes, CRI still matters in a semi-thrower like the C8. This isn't in the performance class of the other high-output lights, but it's over 500m FL1 throw that fits in a jacket pocket for $20. Note that there are a lot of C8s on the market from different companies, but this C8 is the one most people should get. $20
- Haikelite SC04 - 1x26650/2x26650, 4xSST-20. The neutral white option is 95+ CRI and about 3000 lumens with 500+ meters FL1 throw. Side e-switch with a ramping UI and shortcuts. 2x26650 configuration is probably suitable for thumping someone on the head for those who miss that aspect of the classic Maglite. Boost driver for stable output when the batteries are low. This replaces the Convoy L6 on the list due to its LED choice and switch position. $60
- Emisar D4Sv2 - 1x26650, four emitters, lots of options. This is very similar to the D4v2 from the EDC section, but with a bigger battery, more thermal mass, and more throw. 3000-5000 lumens, 280-480m FL1 throw. SST-20 4000K recommended for most users. $50 US buyers should check the US warehouse for faster shipping
- Emisar D18 - 3x18650, 18xSST-20 (XP-L HI by request). 4000K recommended for 10,000 lumens of 95+ CRI light (thermally limited). Efficiency is not a goal with this model's FET driver, but the battery capacity will make up for it for a lot of use cases. Uses ToyKeeper's excellent open source Anduril firmware. $100 - again, check the US warehouse
- Astrolux FT03 SST-40 FET driver, SST-40, big reflector, 26650/21700/18650 and USB-C (probably only A-to-C) charging. 955m throw and 2313 lumens according to zeroair. There's also an XHP50.2 version that trades some of the throw for output. 5000K suggested. $34
- Noctigon K1 - 1x21700, USB-C charging (including C-to-C!), and probably the most throw of any single-cell LED flashlight (LEPs are impressive, but not quite ready for prime time). 1600m FL1 throw with the Osram White Flat 1, 4500 lumens and nearly as much throw (briefly) from the Luminus SBT-90.2. A balanced beam and stable output from the boost-driver equipped Cree XHP35 HI. Several other emitters are available, though some are not listed and can only be had by request - email and ask if there's a combination you want. $90 and up depending on emitter.
- Astrolux MF01 Mini - 1x26650/21700/18650, 7 Luminus SST-20s (4000K, 95 CRI available), USB-C, Anduril firmware, FET driver, aux LEDs. Like a bigger D4v2 with more emitters and a USB port. $65, but check for active discounts
- BLF GT - 8x18650, over 2000m FL1 throw. 4000K neutral white available and recommended. Do you want to win a display of machismo against a lighthouse? This is your flashlight. $180 (on Banggood at the time of this writing)
* BLF GT90 - the GT with a Luminus SBT-90.2 for over 7000 lumens and 2700m throw claimed, but that's going to be limited by heat and power. For sustainable performance, the original may have the advantage. For short bursts, this will be most impressive. 360, but look for discounts Edit 20200624

Monthly discussion topic - Best passive income ideas for women
submitted by Barbie-girl to WomenSurvivalGuide [link] [comments]
We will use this thread to note down all ideas which are effective in earning a substantial passive income. We will only consider those ideas which are -
- low risk, high reward
- Should earn you money even while you sleep
- Have the ability to expand exponentially
- Should help you reach your wealth goal (I will explain in another post on how to set your wealth goal)
I will list down some of the ideas that I feel are best for this purpose. You all also list down some ideas in the comments below.
- Make an app - It doesn't have to be anything too fancy. Many simple apps are also pretty popular on Apple and Google store. There is a period-tracking app that I use, which is pretty basic, but thousands of people buy it's pro version every day. The same goes for some apps that I tried for staying focused. I ended up uninstalling the ones with too many bells and whistles and paid for a simple one instead. Apps have the potential to go huge and give you enormous returns for a long time. The key is doing your research properly. Checking out other apps. Reading what kind of feedback people are giving it. Making notes of what people are saying in their reviews. What features they would like to see. Remember it is not about inventing something new altogether, rather making some changes to what is currently available. Like there were plenty of messaging apps already available when Snapchat was introduced in the market, yet it became popular because it came with a feature where messages are deleted upon opening which is what many people wanted from their messaging app. People always crave something new. Give it to them and you have your profits.
- Develop a game - Similar to an app, a game also has the potential to bring in tremendous returns. And just like an app, simple games can also become pretty popular. We all know the profits that simple games like "Angry Birds", "Talking Tom" brought in for their makers. You can develop games for iOS, Android, or create indie games as well. Game engines like Unity have made it possible for beginners, having basic coding knowledge, to start making games. Here also you have to do your research and see what people like and don't like. Join gamer forums, Reddit subs, Facebook groups to interact with gamers. Also, use these platforms to promote the new game that you developed and get feedback from users. Keep some money aside to advertise your game on social media, it provides a huge boost.
- Create online tutorials - Online education is seeing enormous growth in recent years. There are multiple ways you can earn money by making online tutorials. Make videos and upload them on free websites like YouTube to earn ad money and from affiliate marketing. Or you can make videos and put them on websites like Udemy to earn money when someone buys your course. The paid model mostly works for courses that are STEM and technology related. Even if you do put your courses on Udemy, you have to provide some free content on websites like YouTube or Facebook, so you can build your audience. Give some free coupons to your Udemy course every month so you can get reviews on them. Remember if your course has no reviews, no one is going to trust it and pay money for it and this is the mistake most people do when they upload their course on Udemy. Courses with a decent amount of reviews are guaranteed to bring good sales. So focus on reviews and not money in the initial stage.
- Upload YouTube videos - Apart from tutorials, there are many other types of videos that you can put on YouTube. Comedy, vlogging, cute pet videos, cooking, make-up, technology, fashion, even how to organize your stuff. One of my favorite channels from which I have learned a lot about organizing stuff in my house - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2GT4HiSvUipWNwcWUM7iJQ. Of course, your videos have to actually provide some entertainment or information for people to watch them. If you are just making videos that are similar to other popular videos, people will have no incentive to watch your videos. But don't go around making videos in genres that no one watches. Try making videos in a popular genre giving them a unique twist. This Mexican grandmother amassed more than a million followers in just one month on her cooking channel by making her dishes in an outdoor kitchen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLhxVgG4MHE
- Create an online blog/website - Blogging has become pretty oversaturated in recent times and doesn't provide very good returns anymore. What I would recommend is providing some free content on your blog or website and then also creating premium content for which users need to pay. Just like YouTube, you can use this medium for affiliate marketing as well.
- Become an Instagram influencer - You might think you need millions of followers on Instagram to start earning money from affiliate marketing or sponsored posts, that's not the truth though. I have seen influencers having around 13 thousand followers making sponsored posts and hosting giveaways. I look for mostly STEM based content which is not overcrowded so maybe that is why even with low followers women are able to earn money in this area. Some genres on Instagram are very oversaturated like Fitness and Travel. I would suggest not venturing in them. Also don't do anything if that requires you to invest tons of money like getting expensive clothes, jewelry, gadgets. Start with a limited budget and do something creative. Make-up, artwork, cooking, home organization, STEM related posts. Choose a niche and stick to it. Post regularly and use as many hashtags as possible. Also, if you are choosing something like STEM, post some interesting content in the description along with the picture. Interact with other Instagram accounts in your niche. That's the best way of pulling the crowd towards your account.
- Make money from your artwork - If you have some hobbies like crocheting or painting, put it up on image-based social media like Instagram and Pinterest. People like watching pretty things on social media. Give them escapism and you can earn money from it. Try combining different things. This artist uses fashion designing with real-world elements like flowers, leaves - https://www.instagram.com/edgar_artis/. Create an audience and not only can you earn money by affiliate marketing and sponsored posts but you can also create your own merchandise by printing your artwork on t-shirts, mugs, etc, and sell it on Etsy or Amazon. Try making some artwork which the rich will like to purchase, so even if you sell very products, you get enormous profits on it. Have some expensive quality items in your shop, some big-ticket items for the huge payout, but make sure to entice smaller wallets with "bread and butter" sales that are the backbone of your profits with frequent sales. Also, don't forget to include items that complement each other. As an example, if you're selling handspun yarn, don't forget to include things like knitting needles, nice needle holders, patterns, etc.
- Create a brand - If you use multiple ideas given above, you can create a brand. You are getting great views on YouTube, your courses are making good money on paid online platforms, you have a decent number of visitors on your website/blog and you also make sponsored posts on Instagram and most likely you have a hit app of your service. Congratulations, you have a brand in your control now. You could be offered millions of dollars by giant corporations in lucrative buyout deals. Whether or not you want to sell your brand is your personal choice. I would suggest selling it off while it's still popular and making huge money off it, while still retaining some stake in it. This is why I don't recommend starting your YouTube channel, Instagram account, a website using your name. If Facebook was named "Mark Zuckerberg" it wouldn't look such an attractive prospect to buyers, would it? Create a brand name and promote that instead.
- Write a book - Once you have established yourself in your field and people are willing to pay money to gain knowledge on your area of expertise, consider writing a book. You can market it on your personal social media handles. Even if you sold out your brand to someone else your name will be popular by now thanks to the brand you created. Of course, if you have some brilliant story in your mind as J.K. Rowling had for "Harry Potter", you can start with writing a book right away. Books are ageless and will keep making money even after your death.
- Monthly allowance and Gifts from Boyfriend/Sugar-Daddy/Husband - If you are open to dating men, find yourself a provider type. Instead of getting traditional gifts from him like clothes, handbags, make him give you money or jewelry or some other stuff which you can sell and get money. The key here is using the money you get from him to start your own business or investing in the above stated passive income sources. Don't stay dependent on him forever giving you money.
- Investing in real estate - Real estate is generally considered a good investment provided you do your research and purchase land in a prime location. The rent money you get from real estate is purely passive and you can always sell it back and earn a profit on it when the market is good. Once you have secured enough money using the above-stated methods, buy some real estate and start getting rent from it.
(Note - I only suggest women above 25 to actually implement these ideas. Younger women please just read and learn for now. Concentrate on your studies and get a job in your preferred field. Once you feel you are ready and have the correct mindset, only then venture out to try the above ideas)
An average Millionaire is said to have at least 7 different sources of passive income. So you should be using all these ideas in conjunction with each other. Let's illustrate this with an example -
Suppose it's cooking you are very good at. You have decided that you want to do something in this field. So ideally first you should get a job related to cooking. You can learn many things in a job. What the customers demand, what they like and don't like. You can also hone your skills there. Learn new recipes, the art of presenting food. Meanwhile, save as much money as you can by cutting down all unnecessary expenses (I will make a separate post on how I achieved this and can now live without a job for at least 3 years while I focus on my business). Now when you have saved enough money and ideally got a partnesugar-daddy/husband to support you financially just in case, quit your job and focus on building your brand. I say quit your job because building a brand is full-time work. Doing it after office hours, you will most likely be tired, not have enough energy or motivation and it will reflect in the quality of your work. Once you have embarked on your journey of building your brand, the first step is to learn as much as you can. Watch YouTube videos of various food channels. Read various recipe blogs. Notice what people like and don't like. Also join various Facebook groups, Instagram accounts, and Reddit subs based on the topic of cooking or food. See what type of content users interact with most, what they are demanding. Make note of everything you learn. Go to Pinterest boards to get ideas of how to present food in a way that is aesthetically pleasing. Inspiration and creativity come from regular learning and observations.
When you feel you have gathered enough information, start being a producer. Start a YouTube channel for your recipes. You can select a niche like vegan recipes, recipes for PCOD. One of my favorite Youtuber posts various types of diets. I have personally tried and benefited from some of them - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCduPI5l8EcksRVi5Sdpa1gw
. Of course, when you start, you will have no views. Don't worry, we will solve that. Keep sharing your videos on various Facebook groups. Post on Instagram using multiple hashtags. Recommend them on Reddit cooking communities that you are active on. Basically promote, promote, and promote some more. Don't lose hope if you do not get the views and subscribers that you would have liked. This is the stage where most people give up. Keep posting quality content. The views will come. Meanwhile start a blog and showcase your recipes there also. Sharing them on social media is mandatory too. Interact with Instagram accounts and Facebook groups in your niche, help users who are asking some questions, they will be more likely to subscribe to your page if you interact and help them. Build your audience on social media. Remember this is a hard thing to do and that is why I say it's a full-time job.
After you build an audience, you can enable ads on YouTube and your blog/website. Start affiliate marketing and make sponsored posts on Instagram. Keep growing bigger and better. Create an app for your service, maybe an interactive game where users learn your recipes while cooking them using Bitmoji avatar. Write a book describing your struggles in the Cooking industry and how you made it big. Maybe you will be called to a talk show or as a judge on some cooking show. Or maybe you get your cooking show. Dream big and don't give up until you achieve your wealth goal. Always remember "you miss 100 of the shots you don't take".
If HQ were to collapse
Let’s play a game, CFHQ collapses. What next? submitted by gahgs to crossfit [link] [comments]
If another organization, or the ashes of those that really care within the current org, want to raise up a new and improved CF, how would they do it?
Firstly, I think the organization needs to take a breath and figure out what they are. The current model of CF makes absolutely no sense and is a piss poor business model. What are you selling and why do I invest in it? Find your mission statement. Suggestion: Sell a cohesive fitness program separate from your competition.
Secondly, as mentioned above, there needs to be a distinct line between general fitness utilizing CF principles, and completion. Right now, that’s up to individual Box owners, but it needs to come from the top down. Coaches need to be much better trained than the current L1, L2, etc. on why certain movements are programmed. This scoffing at real Strength & Conditioning education from CFHQ has poisoned their own culture. Provide thorough training and education to your affiliates, continued education mandatory to keep coaching, have certifications that are needed to program, keep shoving the latest S&C knowledge down people’s throats.... do not assume you know better than thousands of others, use the knowledge and provide it to your affiliates as a part of their annual fee. Not this one weekend $1,000 BS.
Lastly, really analyze what GPP is. If you say you’re programming GPP and hold your affiliates accountable for that, then you should never see 100 snatches for time or 5 rounds of 20 pull ups in an AMRAP. It makes no sense. Save the high capacity stuff for completions, keep the GPP GPP.
I think CF can 100% use some new ownership, some better leadership, and some humble pie. I love what CF has to offer, but that is 100% because of the coaches and owners of the various boxes I’ve been a member of. It has nothing to do with CFHQ. If they want to save their business, or raise a new one, they really need to provide a lot more to their affiliates.
BONUS: If I ran a massive company that partnered with some big names, why wouldn’t I create some start up deals that help keep costs low and could potentially reduced membership fees? Why wouldn’t I provide demographic studies to my affiliates and potential affiliates so that they can market their business appropriately, why wouldn’t I continuously have people checking in with my affiliates making sure they have a direct line to HQ and that we constantly improve our product to help affiliates thrive, and thus the community grow.
Sorry for the rant.

Hey ultralight peoples! Many of you may have heard of a magical unicorn rain jacket that is fully waterproof, breathable, well made, and almost half the weight of a frogg toggs!
Well, let’s hope you’ve spotted a double rainbow and found the pot of gold recently cause this magical piece of gear is REAL!
Before I get into it, I’m not sponsored by or affiliated with Skylight in any way, and I didn’t get any discounts for writing this review. In fact, I’ve never been asked to say anything publicly about his gear.
Spencer from Skylight is dedicated to his craft. He’s excited about making the best product possible, and is super passionate about the ultralight mentality. Anything he sells to you, he would (and does) take hiking himself.
When I asked him if he could make me a rain jacket, he said he was swamped but was interested to see how it would hold up on a full thru hike so he was willing to squeeze me in. Lead time: ~6 months! But I didn’t care. He’s super upfront about when he will have time to sew and doesn’t ever make any timeframe promises he can’t keep. He’s busy and he’s the only one sewing so if you want this beautiful unicorn, you may need to have a lot of patience.
Throughout the time from when I first got on his list and when he actually sewed my rain jacket, he probably spent 2-4 hours communicating with me in extensive detail about exactly what I wanted. And I got so excited that I started asking about other custom stuff: rain pants and zippered shorts. With each piece, he ran through every single fabric, feature, sizing detail, and pricing for each of those. He made me feel like I was custom designing my own stuff from scratch! It was actually super fun! And then ultimately every single detail we talked about was executed with absolute perfection.
Rain Jacket (3.2 oz) - $200 shipped -7d silnylon -black torso, gray sleeves -full front zipper, pit zips, integrated stuff sack pocket, improved hood design, shock cord wrist adjustments, KAM snap waist adjustment, critical seams taped (hood, neck, top of sleeves)
Impressions: When I first got it, God decided that humanity needed a wake up call and sent the second great flood to Georgia. It stormed nonstop for two straight weeks. Thankfully Spencer had sent me Noah’s Ark, and I walked dry, comfy, and well ventilated to class every day with my new toy. It is fully waterproof, I promise
. Also, the integrated stuff sack is a miracle. He made it the perfect size so that it just barely fits. This yields a teeny tiny little ball about the size of a clif bar. Very impressive.
Shorts (2.6 oz) - $65 shipped -1.7 oz Airwave fabric (Spencer had a few ideas for the fabric material and I had no idea what they were, so he shipped me little sample squares which helped me greatly in deciding which fabric to go with) -6” inseam, custom sized to be exactly the size of another pair of shorts I love, 2 side pockets (right pocket zippered), and 1 back pocket (zippered)
Impressions: These are PERFECT. They fit exactly right and the seam-work is gorgeous. I wanted a zippered right pocket because I like to carry my phone in my shorts pocket but I kept dropping it last summer. I also wanted a heavy duty zipper because I wanted it to never get caught and also wanted it to be easy to operate with one hand. The pocket came out perfectly. He sized it specifically for my phone, and the zipper is smooth as butter. The back pocket is super handy too for my trail wallet or whatever other little things I want to keep zipped away. Overall my favorite piece of clothing I own.
Rain Pants (1.7 oz) - $90 shipped -black 7d silnylon -custom sized, partially seam taped (outside seams), tapered lower leg/ankle with no adjustments
Impressions: These came in pretty recently. The stitching is perfect, obviously. The sizing is perfect, obviously. I wore them during one rain storm. Super comfy, didn’t get wet. I’ll definitely have to be careful with these though. Again he sent me samples of the different options for fabric. I went with 7d because usually whenever I wear rain pants I get hot and sweaty so I wanted the lightest waterproof fabric possible. 7d is LIGHT. For a rain jacket that’s really not a concern at all but for rain pants I’d be a bit scared to sit down on a rough surface like a rock or walk through brush or something like that. I think it’d hold up, but still a bit nervous. We shall see!
So in all the talks with Spencer over my custom stuff, he mentioned that he had made a prototype Alpha polartec hoody that was my size. I decided to jump on it because he had messed up the hood a bit and so it was heavily discounted. While I was at it, I picked up a pair of Alpha polartec mittens.
Fleece hoody (4.9 oz) - $75 -size small -alpha polartec material
Impressions: Alpha polartec is magic. Look it up. It’s RIDICULOUSLY breathable, but somehow is also incredibly efficient at insulating. Wear the fleece by itself with wind/cold - you’ll be freezing. Wear the fleece with a wind or rain jacket in the same temps, you’ll be super toasty. The main benefit is that it keeps you ridiculously warm when you’re either sitting still or wearing a wind layer, but then sheds all that uncomfortable body heat as soon as you move around or take the wind layer off. The mechanical action from walking is enough to squeeze out the clammy warmth you feel with other fleece materials (and especially down jackets). Also, it’s SO LIGHT. As for the jacket itself, Spencer made it for himself and then made the hood way too long at first. He fixed the hood and finished the trim before selling it to me, so it’s 100% functional and pretty. Only issues are it’s a tad bit short/skinny on me, and the hoods volume is a little shallow. But I also got a $30 discount so I love it.
Fleece mittens (0.6 oz) - $18 -alpha polartec material
Impressions: Not really sure. It hasn’t been cold enough to use them. They do fit well and are super comfy and REALLY warm. They might fall apart if they were used with trekking poles, but I use one trekking pole and don’t like to use my poles if it’s super cold out. When I do wear these, I’ll pair them with my rain jacket which has sleeves long enough for me to turtle my hands inside the sleeve and cinch it up so it acts like a rain mitten. That should keep the fleece mitten from tearing and also will hold in that warmth. Excited to see how these turn out. Might be really nice for sleeping if I want to keep my arms outside of my quilt.
I’m about to start a PCT thru (staying as responsible as possible and minimizing community contact to an extremely low level - I’ll be contacting less people/communities than I was before quitting my job), so I’ll have long term gear reviews for ultralight
once I’m done.

[Review] Herve Leger Bandage Bodycon Dresses from Taobao
submitted by LavenderCooki to RepLadies [link] [comments]
I have wanted a Herve Leger dress for forever. The tight bodycon silhouette, the bandage fabric, and flattering low-neckline to me are the ultimate symbol of sexiness
. So about 2 years ago I embarked on a journey to hunt for the perfect HL replica. I went through so many laughable dupes from Amazon and Aliexpress until I found this sub and the holy grail which is Taobao. I then spent a considerable amount of time browsing on Taobao to find the highest quality seller with the best replica (at this point I was no longer satisfied with dupes and I wanted branded reps with the pretty little square tags). After countless of hours spent browsing Taobao and copying&pasting into Google translate to converse with sellers. I finally found a promising store and bit the bullets and bought 2 dresses. Here comes the review:
Purchase & Timeline
- Seller: Sophia
- Sophia's Taobao Store: tons of pretty branded HL dresses here <3
- Link to Items: Black 2-Piece Peplum Dress - White Sleeveless Dress
- Black Dress ¥459 (~$69 USD)
- White Dress ¥499 (~$75 USD)
- Shipping for both: ¥259 (~$39 USD)
- So I paid ~$144 USD for the 2 dresses and $39 USD for shipping, totaling $183 USD
- Payment Method: Taobao Direct order
- 11/14/2019: Chatted with the lovely shop owner and placed an order (you can request for PvP too in chat but I didn't because the reviews look really good!)
- Same day seller (Sophia) got back to me same day and said that they may have to take out the tags because the package may risk not passing custom
- I see sometimes other sellers may take out the tags and put the tag on the pocket of clothing and you can sew it back on yourself
- I did not want to go through the trouble and since I was traveling to VN in 2 weeks, I asked her to ship to Vietnam instead
- 11/17/19: Received shipping confirmation and tracking number
- 11/23/19: The package was delivered to the Vietnam address that I chose. SO fast! <3 <3 <3
Quality 10/10 for both dress
Omg, where do I even begin? I grasped the moment I opened the package. The dresses came in a Herve Leger labeled plastic dust bag and it smelled good, like luxurious fabric. They were so heavy it felt so expensive. The fabric is smooth and thick yet incredibly soft, not see through at all even with the white dress. It was also very cooling on the skin. IT FELT SO EXPENSIVE on. It's nothing like the cheap thin and overly stretchy fabric from those Amazon dupes. I could already tell from first glance that this fabric will hold all my rolls in (lolol). The white dress’ fabric is even thicker, with the patterns distinct and feel-able (i don’t know how to describe it but you can feel the pattern with your fingers). it’s heavier than the black dress but similarly stretchy and forgiving (you can see it gives me the illusion of having a nice butts haha).
The quality of the fabric is so important for this kind of dress because it is meant to hold your body in and tighten everything and give everything a little push-up if you will. So it has to have some weight and strength to it. The fabric has to be able to "Stand on its own", especially with the peplum dress, because you want it to hold the peplum shape.
The stitches are even, tight and secure. There is not one stitch out of place. I was so happy to inspect the dresses because they were so well-made. The measurements are very close to what was shown, slightly larger imo.
At the time of purchase, I had not touched an auth Herve Leger dress in person, but about 6 months later i ended up buying an auth HL dress. To my surprise, the auth arrived even slightly thinner than the rep. But the stitchings and the cuts are similar, which I will explain more below.
In short, the quality is excellent - well beyond expectation, and I would not have any issue wearing the black dress to work next to people who wear thousand-dollar suits.
Accuracy 8.5/10 for black dress and 8/10 for white dress
This one is a little harder to judge because one of the dreseses are of older releases and I could hardly find many pictures of auths online. But I will try my best to be as nit-picky and possible. Please let me know if you think I missed something Black Dress:
- Design & Cuts: -0 pts: this is spot on, the designs are exactly the same as the auth on HL website. The lines are where they are supposed to be, the arms are three-quarter-length fluted sleeves, the neck is v-line with a silver zipper, and the top is peplum with medium-flare. The peplum flare of the shirt is just right above the butts as how it is on the model, creating a bodycon look that accentuate your butts even know it's not skin-tight in the stomach and upper butts area, which in my oppinion is the best kind of design because it hides my tummy but emphasize by butts. The skirt is midi length and pencil shape.
- Bandage Size: One thing I wanted to point out for this particular design that I saw so many dupes got wrong is that the bandage size for the skirt on the auth is not unfirom from top to bottom: the bands go from thin to wider toward the end. And omg this rep got it right! I was so happy! The bands go from thin to wide just like the auth ! :D
- Measurements: -0.5 pts: I ordered a size XS but it fits more like a S imo. the website does not display exact measurements of the auth but based on the S the model is wearing, I feel like this is might be only ever-so-slightly bigger than an auth XS. I also have an auth XS dress and it fits a little snugger than this dress
- Tag: - 0.5pts: this is where i am a little more confused. The HL website shows the dress has the classic grey tag with the triple-line frame which the rep has spot-on. But then my auth which I bought recently has the new white tag (second pic in the above link). Either case, the picture of the old tag does not show the size being printed on the square tag itself, and there is a bigger bottom border. For that reason, I am deducting half a point
- Fabric: -0.5 pts: I have not felt the fabric of this exact design but the fabric of the auth dress that I own is slightly thinner. While I prefer the fabric on the rep because it is thicker while equally stretchy and forgiving; for accuracy rating purpose, I am deducting half a point. Beside that, everything else looks exactly the same.
- Design & Cuts: -0 pts Similarly to the black dress, this is spot-on compared to what I can see from pictures of auth online. I could not find a lot of photos so it was a little harder to compare the frabrics
- Measurements: - 0.5 pts It seems a little long on me but it's a midi on the model so I suppose it could be correct? My only complain to similar to the black dress, the XS is a little large only while the auth XS fits me perfectly
- Tag: -0.5 pts for same reasons as black dress
- Fabric: -1pts I dont have a lot of pictures online but if I have to be nit-picky, I think the biege on the white dress is a little darker than that of the auth? Other than that the fabric feels and looks very expensive
The dresses are amazing. IT's so pretty on. Even though they are slightly large on me, they hug all my curves. I am beyond amazed with the quality. The dresses look and feel like the real deal and feel so high quality. I would not hesitate to wear this to walk into high-end shops on Rodeo drive.
Seller Communication and Service 10/10
Sophie is AMAZING. She has decent English and very quick to respond! When we found out about the issue with custom she was quick to work with me about an alternative solution! 100% will come back!
A quick business lesson from CrossFit...
CrossFit has given us all so much. Here’s some top steps to make the business you own as successful as CrossFit: submitted by mister_patience to crossfit [link] [comments]
Step 1: engage a community with a great product
Step 2: make communities pay to affiliate with this brand, and then give them next to nothing in return!
Step 3: create a worldwide event, capture that with some of the best filmmaking and commentating in sport and use it to push the message out with the brand.
Step 4: give up on step three and remove everything that was built and obviously profitable - force others to see how replaceable you are in the competitive arena.
Step 5: during steps 1-4, try to do as many things as possible to make the company appear like useless assholes. Belittling comments, lack of engagement or transparency, random shitty emails from CEO. Provide zero value and actively undo all of the framework that you provide.
Step 6: Reduce the entire workforce to marketing and sales. This is always a good idea. All franchises are built on this. McDonald’s without burgers right?
Step 7. At the height of your success, and at a time when you could easily make the most of a focus on community, make sure the crazy CEO has easy access to Twitter so they can make hurtful, racist comments and (bonus points) spread misinformation and conspiracy theories.
Step 8: Profit!
GG deserves to lose it all. He gave up on CrossFit a long, long time ago.
Case study - Fitness Site Journey
Hi, this is a case-study of my fitness site journey on a site I originally built in November 2018. submitted by syndrig-1 to juststart [link] [comments]
For various reasons I didn't do anything with it, and it's been online and aging ever since. The few articles that were there received a big boost in Google's Core Algo Update in March 2020.
So in April I decided to add more fuel to the fire and really give this a go, and have been working on it for 5 hours a week ever since.
I wanted to start this for some accountability and for constructive feedback.
I've been working as an SEO professionally for close to 10 years. I run a couple of businesses and own over a dozen sites. I've worked as a freelancer, owned an agency, run a business comprised of affiliate sites, flipped an eCommerce brand and much more. Now I'm looking to work on passion projects which weren't always the most profitable or viable in my case.
Short term - Get to $1,000 USD/Mo Revenue
Long term - Build a fitness brand which will monetize with our own products.
I focus on niche research and keyword research a lot. In this case the domain is broad which will allow me to expand laterally later, however I have picked a single angle/niche to start off with.
As for keyword research it's one of those areas where people both over-simplify it and over-complicate it at the same time. I think that making sure you're competing for the right search terms is critical and so I spend a lot more time on this than most do and the main difference is that I'm not focusing on as many variables.
My content strategy is the hub and spoke method as from my own analysis I believe this is what will work best for my keyword set.
This means that much of the content isn't commercial in nature as I am trying to cover the topic as much as possible. Not all subjects themselves are commercial keywords.
I focus on covering the subject in a satisfactory manner. E.g. I do not believe that longer content for the sake of longer content is a good idea.
I'm currently publishing 2 articles per week and I'm then posting the articles on my branded social accounts.
I am creating personas on fitness forums and posting links to my site after I've reached a certain amount of posts, but only when a good opportunity arises to do so. I am also doing high-quality blog comments. These are the pillow links I'm building for the site as it had 0 links when I started up in April.
The plan is to complete a topic a month for 2 months, then spend a month optimizing and improving existing articles before moving onto the next two topics.
As this is a passion project I am writing the articles myself.
Progress so far:
So far I have 21 articles in total which is the combined total of what was originally on the site and what I have now been adding since April.
The site now has over 100 position 1-10 keywords. It's acquired 2 links from lists of top fitness sites, my guess is this is because of the design and the fact the content gets shared on social channels.
I was getting around 100 clicks a day until the May Update which has only hit the site around 10%. This update seems to be massively in favor of authority, which is something the site doesn't have loads of yet. I am thankful it didn't get hit harder.
Monetization - Solely Amazon right now... It made $88 last month and this month so far it's only at around $30.
Next month will start the optimization process of tweaking the content. It will also be the month where I am going to focus on researching the next topic to cover.
I am going to be preparing to start outreach as I want to start getting some links to the better pieces of content I've created.
I will also be publishing a single piece of content a week which will be posted to the blog rather than a specific category. This will be geared towards gaining traffic from social.
