December 2018 Updates

1. TheMaverickSpirit Turned 2 This Year  

Yes! TheMaverickSpirit turned 2 years old on 12th December. It’s been an awesome journey so far for us and we know there is more to come.

We’ve had both bad and good experiences, but we never stopped believing in our dreams and always tried to learn from our mistakes.

2. Proxima Nova Finally Joined The Family

This was one of the biggest changes in TheMaverickSpirit!

We’ve added one of the most popular and beautiful fonts “Proxima Nova” created by Mark Simonson to our website.

Our old fonts were (Open Sans, Roboto & Poppins) and we have replaced them with Proxima Nova.

Our whole focus is to maintain the symmetry of our website’s design, branding, user experience, and content.

Said so! Proxima Nova certainly has increased our website’s user experience as it works really well on high-resolution screens to small mobile devices.

It doesn’t matter how small, big, light, or bold it is, you won’t see a blurry letter in any situation.

We don’t have to say more about it! The Font, says it all! Isn’t it?

  1. Security Activity Auditing

  3. Remote Malware Scanning
  4. Blacklist Monitoring
  5. Effective Security Hardening

6. Services & Tools Used – is a browser-based desktop & mobile push notification service to drive more traffic to your website using browser notifications.

It allows the website audience to “subscribe” to your website without an email address. Currently, it works with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari desktop, and Android mobile.

Subscribers are Free for up to 200 subscribers and work with HTTP & HTTPS both.  

7.  Affiliate Earnings – Best Services That Converted This Month

8. Marketing Holiday Event Page – Christmas & New Year Deal Pages

  • WordPress Themes,
  • WordPress Plugins,
  • Web Hosting,
  • SEO Tools, and
  • Social Media Management Tools.

It was indeed a successful event for us and we will recommend you do the same for extra income if you’re running a blog or a service or product owner.
