Should You Promote Residual Affiliate Programs?

Should You Promote Residual Affiliate Programs?

Greetings.

Are you a webmaster in need of additional income?  
Or are you planning to set up an online business 
but you still don't have any product to sell?

If so, affiliate marketing may be the best solution 
for your problems.  With affiliate marketing, you 
won't need to worry about the products you have 
to sell.  All you need to have is a website with 
sufficient contents related to the products 
of a certain online company offering affiliate 
programs.  By becoming a member of the program, 
or by becoming an affiliate, you can start earning 
a certain amount of money right away!

At the end of this piece you'll see how you can 
totally automate the process for phenomenal results.

Affiliate marketing is a business relationship 
established between a merchant and an affiliate.  
In affiliate marketing, an affiliate agrees to 
direct some traffic to a merchant's website.  

If that traffic is converted into some kind of 
action, like a visitor purchasing a product on 
the merchant's website or a visitor becoming a 
lead for the company, the affiliate who directed 
the traffic will be compensated.

Compensation may take the form of either a percentage 
sales commission for the sales generated or a 
fixed fee predetermined upon the application of 
the affiliate on the merchant's affiliate program.

Promising a lot of benefits both for the merchants 
and the affiliates, affiliate marketing has become 
one of the most popular online marketing methods 
today.  In fact, almost every merchant or retailer 
site today offers an affiliate program that any one 
can join into.  Most retailers would entice people 
to become affiliates or members of their program by 
promising great benefits like large commissions, 
lifetime commissions, click through incomes and alot 
of other benefits.  But would all these affiliate 
programs bring off the same benefits? 

Most affiliate programs would pay you, as an 
affiliate, a one-time commission for every sale 
or lead you brought to the merchant's website.  
Commissions for this kind of affiliate programs 
are usually large, ranging from 15% to a high of 
about 60%.  Other affiliate programs would pay 
you a fixed fee for every click through or traffic 
you send to the merchant's site.  Programs like 
this often pay a smaller fee for every click 
through, usually not getting any larger than 
half a dollar.  The good thing about this kind 
of program, however, is that the visitor won't 
have to purchase anything in order for the 
affiliate to get compensated.

Another type of affiliate program is the residual 
income affiliate program.  Residual affiliate 
programs usually pay only a small percentage of 
sales commission for every sale directed by the 
affiliate to the merchant's site.  This commission 
often comes only in the range of 10% to 20% sales 
commission.  Because of this, many people ignore 
residual affiliate program and would rather opt 
for the high paying one-time commission affiliate 
program.  Are these people making a mistake, or 
are they making the right decision?

We can't tell, for sure, if people are making a 
mistake by choosing a high paying one-time 
commission affiliate program.  But we can 
definitely say that they are making a large 
mistake if they ignore residual affiliate 
programs.  Residual affiliate programs would 
indeed pay at a lower rate, but merchants 
offering such kind of programs would generally 
pay you regular and ongoing commissions for a 
single affiliate initiated sale!  That means, 
for the same effort you made in promoting a 
particular affiliate program, you get paid only 
once in a one-time commission program, and a 
regular and ongoing commission for a residual 
program!

So, are the benefits of promoting residual 
affiliate programs clearer to you now?  Or 
are they still vague?  If they are still vague, 
then let's make them a bit clearer with this 
example.

Suppose there are two online merchants both 
offering web hosting services on their sites.  
The first merchant offers a one-time commission 
type of affiliate program that pays $80 for 
every single affiliate initiated sale.  The 
second merchant also offers an affiliate program, 
but this time a residual affiliate program 
that pays only $10 for every single affiliate 
initiated sale.  As an affiliate, we may get 
attracted at once at what the first merchant 
is offering, as $80 is definitely a lot larger 
than $10.  But by thinking things over before 
actually getting into them, one may be able 
to see that the second merchant is offering 
us more opportunity to earn a larger amount 
of money.

Supposing you have directed traffic to the 
merchant and it converted into a sale, you'll 
get paid once by the first merchant for the 
sale you have initiated.  But with the second 
merchant, you'll get paid monthly for as long 
as the customer you have referred to the merchant 
continues to avail of the web hosting service.  
That means that for the same effort of getting 
one customer to avail of the merchant's service, 
you get paid monthly in residual affiliate 
programs while you only get paid once in a 
one-time commission type of affiliate programs.

So, are residual affiliate programs worth promoting?  
Definitely yes, because you virtually get more 
money from these types of affiliate programs in 
the long run!  And would residual affiliate programs 
work best for you?  Probably not, probably yes.  
It is not really for me to tell.  But with the 
benefits that residual affiliate marketing can 
provide, it would really be unwise to ignore such 
programs.

If you would like to get started, why not be led by
the hand and learn, step by step, the automated
income stream method, without breaking the bank?

How I Made Almost One Million Dollars

Greetings.

Gosh!  It has been a while since I posted on my lovely blog – I simply must do better and find the time within my hectic workload to ensure I keep you all better informed, lol!

Anyway, I came across this article from the brilliant Dino Vido and thought I’d begin my come-back by reposting it here.  Enjoy (and learn!).  Please scroll down a bit – the perils of cut and paste!

JUNE 26, 2011 BY DINO VEDO 6 COMMENTS

I got into thinking about ‘making money online’ about 7 years ago. Thats when I had zero assets online and I was starting from scratch. Of course, I had no idea at that time that I would make close to a cool million.

Anyhow, after browsing and looking around, I decided to giveForex Trading a go. It seemed to be a good way to make money. Just sit at home, watch charts on your computer and download the money. You don’t even have to step out of the house. Needless to say, it appealed to me.

I bet you’re thinking I made my money from trading. You’d be wrong. After playing the markets for a while, I realized that there were many traders asking question on trading forums. Most of the new traders were looking for systems. So I sat down and devised a few systems and put it into a book form. I went back to the forum and asked if anyone would like to buy it. I got tons response. I sold each copy for just $10.

So after thinking about this, I thought hmmm, I could make more money with another book. So then I created a beginners guide to trading. I sold this for $97 a copy. This time, I made a site and collected emails and did some advertising online etc.. This sold like hot cakes too because I also set up an affiliate program with this book.

Then, after a couple of years or so, I thought, I already have a good following. I already have a good subscriber list.
If I were to create a course with bells and whistles and sell it for $1000 each, I could make some serious money.

The Next Step

So I sat down and started creating this course. I knew it had to be a really powerful course to be worth so much money. It took be the best part of 9 months to complete the course. It was spread over many CDs and a manual. Once it was completed, I had to arrange all sorts of things to launch this product:- Website, Launch Sequence, Launch Material and of course Joint Venture partners.

I managed to gather a few big names in the industry and this was the biggest factor in creating the sales. On launch day, all hell broke lose. Phones were constantly manned and orders were coming in from all sorts of places. To add to that, Paypal shut my account which created huge cashflow problems. From this launch, I raked in just under a million bucks. However, all of that wasn’t mine. I had to give 2/3rds to affiliates etc… but I was left with enough money to buy a house (which I did). Sometime after that, I decided to make money in other ways but I also wanted to help others at the same time.

So I set about creating a site which teaches people to make money. In fact any guru who publishes a product online about “Make $124,975 in the Next 90 Days” and things like that, I take the idea, make my own product and share it with people on my site. The site has taken a huge leap upwards and people love it as they get the information that they can’t afford to buy from the gurus themselves. They can get the same information from my site for $5 a month. For that, they get not 1, but 4 of the latest money making products every month.

It’s Your Turn

Nowhere on the net can you get a good, buzz worthy money making product for a fiver, let alone four whole product for $5 in total. You can see for yourself. The site I set up is http://www.JunkieClub.com and it has many members who receive their weekly dose of money making products for next to nothing ($5/month). So if you want to make a million like I did, I don’t know if you’ll be able to replicate my success but the site I own now, can lead you in that direction.

Hope this helps,

Click Income Tycoon: A Proven Online Home Business Franchise.

Greetings.

Today, given the proliferation of ‘coupon sites’ on the net (which I love – I’ve had many a cut-price massage and a few Zumba classes through them!), I thought I’d look at a marketing system which promotes one such portal where people can earn – whether or not they buy anything – just through the act of clicking.

It’s unique in its simplicity.  One signs up for the system, is walked through the necessary steps, and then gets instantly plugged into the portal where savings and earnings are gained immediately.

There is also the added benefit of an affiliate program for the marketing system itself.

The vast majority of people venturing out online in search of home business success will fail.  Why?  Because most usually have zero business related skills in sales and marketing or sadly have the get-rich-quick-or-not-at-all mentality which ensures that they don’t stick to anything long enough to have any success.

The respected marketing experts at Click Income Tycoon have
set out to turn failure into success with their newly-launched Click Income Tycoon turn-key home business type franchise.

Click Income Tycoon can take care of all new entrepreneurs’ marketing, sales calls, and training, providing a full-service company that handles much of the day-to-day needs of the home business newbie.  It also taps into an ever growing market—the home based business market—giving new entrepreneurs the ability to make
money selling what everyone wants these days.  Time freedom, no debt and control of their financial futures.

Most people aren’t born salesmen, aren’t marketing experts, and don’t know near enough about computers and the Internet to truly be successful when first starting out.  That’s where Click Income Tycoon comes in, with its experienced professionals who can help new online entrepreneurs find success.

“Click Income Tycoon uses a proven, simple marketing system that anyone can be successful using…just like a traditional offline McDonalds franchise would” George Briere (founder) states. “It’s a system that does all the marketing, selling, and explaining for the new business owner.”

Basically, the system allows the home business owner to outsource the most difficult and tedious aspects of their business.  Quite simply, it’s the best and most affordable marketing system ever created for the home-based business industry, George says.

The system generates leads, qualifies them for you, makes the sale, and even trains future business partners all on complete auto-pilot.  Using Click Income Tycoon, those new to marketing can often have the same results as marketing veterans.

The franchise that the system markets is a growing internet trend – this will ensure the longevity and success of this innovative endeavour.

Your ClickBank Freedom Formula

Greetings.

Today’s post is a guest post on the Clickbank blog by successful internet marketer, Simon Hodgkinson.  It details the issues to have in mind when considering affiliate marketing and is a must-read for all budding internet entreprenuers.

Author: Molly Lane, ClickBank | October 21st, 2010

The secret to becoming a successful affiliate marketer: WORK BACKWARDS

This might seem odd so let me explain…

Over the last few years, we’ve generated millions in commissions and taught thousands of budding affiliate marketers how to make more money online. After many unsuccessful attempts, we finally realized what we were doing wrong.

Statistics show there’s a 95% chance that you aren’t as successful at affiliate marketing as you’d like to be, and even if you’re doing great, by simply applying the little ‘mind shift’ I’m about to share with you, you’ll be able to take your current success to an entirely new level.

Before you begin any promotional campaign you need to identify your end goal.

Think about it for a second, and ask yourself why are you even working as an affiliate in the first place? Although affiliate marketing can be fun, making money is essential.

Like everyone else, you’re an affiliate because you need the money. Making car payments, paying bills such as rent or mortgage, family vacations or the 101 different things that factor into our cost of living add up.

One of the biggest problems is that most people never sit down and add the cost of all these expenses. Once you begin to crunch those numbers and figure out exactly what it takes to live without the worry of how much things cost, or where the money for the next bill is coming from, is when you will start to see the true power of affiliate marketing.

The revelation is that affiliate marketing doesn’t just have the power to make you some ‘extra cash,’ it has the power to set you free!

So how do we start? First you need to know how much you need (pretty simple right). ☺

Grab a notebook and make a list of everything you spend money on each month. At the top of your sheet, you want to write “living expenses.” Go through the fixed costs that you have each month (everything should go in here, rent/mortgage, car payments, cell phone, utilities, food etc.).

Then you want add in your entertainment expenses (the fun stuff!). You can estimate the monthly costs but include things like movies, eating out, monthly mini-vacations etc. Next combine your living expenses with your entertainment costs and you’ll have a total monthly expense figure. Got it?

Don’t underestimate the power of doing this. This has been the number one exercise we ask our coaching students to do because affiliate marketing is not the be all and end all – it’s the tool that gets you there. Without the end goal, you don’t have any kind of way to evaluate your progress!

Let’s work an example: Say $5,000 is the amount you need each month. If your affiliate income can match $5,000 (which is peanuts compared to what you can do if you really push things), you’ll have all of your expenses covered!

Now it’s just a matter of building your system that will generate this income for you automatically, every month. We need to calculate how many sales we need to achieve our income goal. What I want you to do is take your income goal and divide it by the net amount of commission you plan to make with each sale.

For example, let’s say that we’re going to make $30 per sale. $5,000 divided by $30 is equivalent to 166 sales a month. When you break that down, it’s just 6 sales a day.

Now, if you think it’s hard to sell 6 ClickBank products a day, just understand that there are people who can sell 150 ClickBank products a day and more. What I’m talking about here doesn’t even take into account rebills and future payments and how they can compound over time!

So how much traffic do we need to get to those 6 sales?

Just take the monthly number of sales you need (which was 166), and divide that by the vendor’s sales page conversion rate.
We can make a quick assumption that sales page conversion rate will be around the industry standard of 2%. Then, we divide the total number of sales we need by .02, and see what we get from that. Don’t worry if you don’t want to do all the calculations right now, I have handy ‘one click’ resource for you coming up at the end. ☺

For example: 166 / 0.02 = 8,300 unique visitors a month. Break that down and it becomes just 277 unique visitors a day.
The point is, with this formula you’ll know how to figure out exactly how much traffic you need to reach that goal, and vice-versa. If you know how much traffic you site is getting right now, you can reverse the calculation to determine which programs to promote based on commission amounts. It’s not just random numbers floating around anymore!

You have a target to aim for!

Well, kind of. That’s the number of visitors you need to get to the vendor’s page (the page of the person you’re promoting), however, you’ll probably want to send them to your own site first, and then get them to the vendor’s site. In a perfect world you could get every visitor to go from your site to your vendor’s page (that would be a 100% conversion rate), but it’s not a perfect world. So the big question is how many do you actually need to come to your site to reach your goal?

For a quick and dirty answer just divide the number by 0.3 (this is a 30% conversion rate from your site to a vendor’s site). Although you may be able to achieve a higher conversion rate (we have pages that covert to 40%-50%), we will estimate on the conservative side. So, 8,300 / 0.3 is 27,666 and that’s the traffic we would need to reach the goal in our example. The next step is to take that 27,666 and divide it by 30. That tells us how many visitors per day we need to arrive at our own website. That’s 922 visitors a day.

And that’s everything you need for financial freedom! Beautiful how this works isn’t it?

Conclusion:

When you calculate your own personal freedom formula number, you might be surprised how close you are to it already. It’s just a matter of setting up your traffic plan and finding the best programs from the ClickBank Marketplace to promote.

You can also run more than one campaign, identify programs that offer recurring billing to automatically add fresh commissions each month to your tally without having to drive more traffic and test and tweak your own pages to increase conversions to ultimately reach your goal. In fact there are many easy-to-apply adjustments that will reduce the time it takes to achieve your objective. Just remember that knowing your objective first is the best way to achieve it.
If you’d like to calculate your own freedom formula number (and you don’t want to crunch through all those numbers in your head), we’ve put a useful online tool that will do it all for you with just a couple of clicks. Click Here: http://www.cbcashgrenade.com/freedom

Make Money with Writing, Blogging, and eBay

Greetings.

I’m going to show you three quick and dirty ways
to make income online, by working as much or as
little as you want, from anywhere in the world,
whenever you choose

1. Freelance Writing

Online freelance writing jobs are plentiful, if
you know where to look and can distinguish the
legitimate opportunities from the potential scams.

Most people don’t have a clue about the wide
variety of writing opportunities available to them
all over the Internet. These include writing
simple articles, press releases, and even complete
e-books.

Some clients pay upfront for your material,
offering a certain amount per word or per
assignment. Others will pay you per the hour for
other writing and publishing related tasks such as
proof-reading and editing web content.

Freelance writing networks such as “The Freelance
Writing Jobs Network” are a great place to start
looking for writing jobs and advice. And then
there are what I call “freelance matchmaking”
sites or “job boards” like Elance.com and
Freelancer.com.

On these sites, almost every day, thousands of
businesses post various types of writing projects,
gigs and requests. If you get aggressive in
applying for these open spots, then there’s a
virtually unlimited supply of writing
opportunities that can make you money relatively
quickly.

When starting, reply to as many project requests
as possible, offer to work at a reasonable rate
(but not dirt cheap), and be quick and responsive.

Landing that first gig is always the hardest
step, but once you’ve built up a portfolio and
some clientele, you’ll get more and more
consistent work.

The key to making money with freelance writing is
to quickly produce as many quality pieces as you
can for your portfolio, and then use job boards
and social networking strategies to promote your
writing. The more traffic you get to your online
work, the more companies you’ll have approaching
you to write for them.

Here are some additional tips when setting up
your portfolio:

i. Set up a professional web page with your
resume, contact information, and some writing
samples.

ii. Establish yourself as a reputable, talented
freelance writer by submitting only your best
quality work to potential clients.

iii. Network with other busy writers who may be
able to send extra work your way. Participate in
writers forums by writing useful comments and
including links to your website and online work.

2. Making Money with eBay

If writing is not your thing, then hop on over to
ebay.com and you can start selling almost anything
you can imagine within just minutes.

Imagine having access to 100 million
cash-spending buyers. That’s exactly the kind of
gold mine that’s waiting for you on eBay. It has
over 100 million registered users, all of whom are
out there shopping for great deals.

To become a successful eBay seller, first you
must first figure out what to sell. You can sell
your own items, check out trade shows in your
local area, or search online directories like
Doba.com and Alibaba.com to find hot products.

Here’s how to get the most out of your ebay
listings and auctions:

i. Create good titles and descriptions, and
include quality photos of the items. Write
descriptions that stand out, but do not make them
obnoxious by using all capital letters or
excessive punctuation. Also, be honest about any
defects in the items you have for sale.

ii. Consider starting your own eBay store for
selling large quantities, since they have a longer
run time than typical auctions. Participate in the
eBay community and read the forums to stay
involved.

iii. Other ways to get traffic to your auctions and
items for sale include creating an page
on eBay and linking to your auctions from other
sites. You also could register a domain name
dedicated solely to promoting your own auctions.

Once you find a hot product, keep selling it, and
then gradually find more and more products you can
promote. Over time, your income will grow
exponentially.

3. How to Make Money with Your Own Blog

Blogging is another easy way to make money
online. The secret to profitable blogging is to
focus on a particular, that is, your area
of expertise or a very specific subject that is
popular in the search engines.

Here’s how to get started blogging:

i. Like freelance writing, you should approach
blogging with the intent to write unique, quality
content. Offering useful information and
establishing yourself as a trustworthy resource to
your readers will quickly lead to lots of
word-of-mouth traffic to your blog. Readers can
tell if you do not know what you are talking
about, so do your research and focus on producing
quality content.

ii. Starting a blog is as simple as getting a free
account at WordPress.com, Blogger.com, or another
blog hosting site. You can also pay for a domain
name and hosting services if you want to
personalize your blog even more. I suggest you
start with the free options.

iii. Once you have established your blog, then you
can focus on monetizing it by incorporating
relevant ads through advertising networks like
Google AdSense or Chitika. Affiliate programs such
as Amazon also are becoming increasingly popular
ways to earn extra revenue. In addition, you could
sell private ads or review products on your blog.

iv. Promote your blog by utilizing social
networking opportunities such as LinkedIn,
Facebook, Twitter, and blogging forums. If you’re
creative, then you’ll find endless opportunities
to promote your blog throughout these social
communities.

===

Freelance writing, selling on eBay, and blogging
are only three of the many ways to make money
online. They might require an initial investment
of time and effort, but you are likely to see some
quick income and even huge profits in the long run
if you follow these hints.

Automated Traffic Generation Software Programs

Greetings.

The ingenuity and sheer brilliance of today’s innovative internet
marketers never ceases to amaze me!

I’m always on the look out for affiliate programs that convert into
some nice residual income from Clickbank, i.e. they must be tried
and tested and prove to work as described to ensure effective use
and a high volume of sales!

I have been reviewing some of the recent traffic generation launches
which boast of requiring no particular technical knowledge to
implement and operate so that the most phobic of techno’s (like
myself, can have them up and running – AND PRODUCING THE DESIRED RESULTS – within a reasonable time.

I will give my Internet Marketing Views and experience on the
workings of three of these (without giving away any proprietory
secrets).  They can be accessed here:

1. http://bit.ly/traffic-hijack
2. http://bit.ly/traffic-xtreme
3. http://bit.ly/my-traffic-anarchy

I must say that I found all three to be extremely creative and very,
very, clever.

1.  Auto Traffic Hijack (ATH)

I was keen to find out what this “secrect traffic source” was and
was indeed surprised to discover what it is and how it works.  I
ensured I upgraded to make sure that the ATH process was as
automated as possible and was pleasantly surprised at the mechanics
of the automated process.

There were a few initial glitches with the software (possibly due to
the sheer intricacies of it) which the vendors swiftly corrected by
introducing various add-ons to streamline the process.

Once I had mastered the quick start guide the software was
relatively easy to use (although it took a little longer than I
would have hoped) and ATH did indeed work as described.

2.  Xtreme Traffic Arbitrage (ATA)

This is my absolute favourite!  XTA combines an effective traffic
generating technique with the creation of various niches and takes
it to another level.  I again upgraded to ensure the best benefits
of automation of the software (which would otherwise have entailed
the spending of many more man-hours than I was prepared to spend).

I am very impressed with the business model which can be used time
and again in whatever niche you may be interested.  It will require
some additional investment depending on how far and wide you are
prepared to take it but certainly nothing major.

Due to the nature of this innovation, the concept has longevity for
any niche in any location and really does offer exceptional value
for money with high returns.

3.  Traffic Anarchy (TA)

The simplicity of use of TA is very impressive.  Included is the
automated process of submitting content of your choice in any niche
to directories, as press releases, as rss feeds and via social
bookmarking sites.

The efficient automated process extends to creating multiple
accounts for you, and push-button easy submission to the relevant
places.  One aspect that I absolutely love is that they actually
provide you with literally hundreds of articles and blogs related to
online marketing that you can alter and tweak in any way you choose.

I found that this drastically reduces the time required to market
effectively in these areas while providing in-depth, valuable
content.

Again, the cost of this software is relatively low given the
benefits provided.

****

All three of these automated software programs provide very good value for money but it is important to implement them correctly and, more importantly, ACTUALLY USE THEM in your online efforts!

I will continue to look into more of the creative traffic-generating
techniques on the market and bring you my Internet Marketing Views as I progress.

Please contribute by leaving your comments on these programs or any others that you have found exceptional.

Quit Your Job and Network – Virally

Greetings.

As usual I’ve been looking at various programs in order to provide my ‘internet marketing view’.

Quit Your Job Course caught my eye recently. It was promoted to me as the total and complete marketers site, allowing you  to capture names and email addresses from every click on the net and after looking into it – I have to say I am impressed.

I joined and took the upgrades – I figured, they offer a money back guarantee so why not..? You are not in any way required to take the upgrades to get the benefits of the site. However, they do multiply the benefits, I have found.

What a concept – I must say.
The building of a list online is perhaps one of the most important skills you can ever have and this site is the most incredibly easy to use system
to literally explode your list.

This benefits WHATEVER you promote.
No matter if it is a Clickbank product, a matrix, an MLM or ANYTHING. Even Google ad words and ‘traditional’ style of marketing can reap huge benefits from this site.

You get to create your own opt in lists on total autopilot.

Now there have been other sites that have done this, but none that then throw in a TOTAL Auto-responder system and Email marketing follow up system as well.

The ‘Secret Weapon’ Sales system is a method for showing FULL PAGE ads –
And not just from clicks on your own links – but from clicks on links across the whole network and in fact across the ENTIRE INTERNET!!

Imagine that –
Totally targeted, unblock-able, Full page ad views from people that have already said they are interested…..

That alone is going to put a lot of dough in my pocket over the years to come.

And this works virally–meaning as you make referrals into Quit Your Job Course (either by promoting it or just using it and visitors click the Quit Your Job Course image on the Full Page ad window to join) you also earn ad credits on THEIR link clicks.  And this works up to 5 levels deep.  So you can create a massive amount of free ad views and web traffic by referring others to Quit Your Job Course also.

I didn’t get to test the full effect of a big down-line yet (I just got the tool) but I can tell you the rest of the site works exactly as stated–my links got clicked, My list is growing at a rate I have never seen before, and my ads got displayed.  Quit Your Job Course even tracked my results so I know how many clicks and how many ad displays.  That was an impressive unadvertised extra feature.

There is one more benefit and feature which might be the best of them all–down-line emailing.  You can email your down-line with offers, promotions, or whatever you like, and here is where Quit Your Job Course really shines.  They took time to make the emailing often enough that it’s valuable as a user, but no so often that it’s a burden to your down-line.  But the best part about this feature (and actually the credit earning too) is that it tells you exactly how long until you can mail again. They even give you an instant 250 Member down-line to mail to – before your first referral, but…  THE TOP LEVEL IS WHERE TO BE FOR SERIOUS MARKETERS – A GUARANTEED 3000 MEMBER MAIL OUT COMES WITH THE PACKAGE… Whoa!

Overall I have to say I am impressed with Quit Your Job Course.  It is simple yet powerful, and delivers on its promises.  Highly recommended to anyone who wants to explode their list and benefit from some excellent advertising.

See it and join here: (I negotiated to give anyone that joins through my link, instant EXECUTIVE membership, but this is not forever, so make haste)

Quit Your Job!

Yes, indeed.

Web Marketing Solutions – 3 Powerful Secrets To Make Money Online

Greetings.

Today’s offering about marketing online is provided by Thomas
Freers:

Internet marketing is fast becoming the largest avenue for income.
Your website is where all the traffic is driven to so it must be
user friendly to draw a reader’s interest immediately or you lose
them. It only takes a few seconds to make an impression so you want
it to be a positive one. Your website must look professional and
easy to read. Since most people want to understand what your website
is about, you may want to use images with links. A picture is worth
a 1000 words and what you don’t want is a lot of clutter.

Assuming that you have your website in place, here are 3 powerful
secrets to make money online:

1. Short articles: Writing short topical articles based on keyword
searches. We call this article marketing which is a powerful way to
draw interest to your website. This only takes a short time and your
costs are absolutely nothing. There are many article directories in
which you may post your article but the largest is Ezine Articles.
Articles that are posted in this fashion give you a target market,
which makes the leads higher quality.

2. Short Videos: Creating short videos are another powerful tool you
can use to drive traffic your website. You can be smart and take the
article that you have just written and make a short 2 – 4 minute
video with the exact content. Not only does this save you valuable
time but also is real easy. Either by using a web cam in which you
just read your article making it sound like a story or by creating a
slide show with music and voice over. In each case it is extremely
important that you always include your website link to drive traffic
to your website.

3. Social Media: This is one of the newest marketing strategies
today. They’re almost 550 million people using just Facebook as of
2010 not to mention the other Social Media sites available today.
The trick to the Social Media sites is to keep in mind that they are
social sites, what is meant by social is that they are friends
talking to friends. People are building relationships over the
Internet and that is their primary function. You don’t want to
plaster a bunch of business ads you will lose out. On the other hand
when you build relationships you build trust and therefore
creditability. When you have creditability your friends will be more
likely to refer friends.

Any form of marketing that you decide to do you must create a daily
habit. The power of creating a daily habit is that you add to your
free marketing each day, every little bit that you do will drive a
little more traffic to your website. A little each day will go along
way and the best news is that these marketing avenues are free. What
you do each day will pay dividends for years to come.

Why You Should Promote Residual Affiliate Programs

Greetings.

Are you a webmaster in need of additional income?
Or are you planning to set up an online business
but you still don’t have any product to sell?
If so, affiliate marketing may be the best solution
for your problems.  With affiliate marketing, you
won’t need to worry about the products you have
to sell.  All you need to have is a website with
sufficient contents that are related to the products
of a certain online company offering affiliate
programs.  By becoming a member of the program,
or by becoming an affiliate, you can start earning
a certain amount of money right away!

At the end of this piece you’ll see how you can
totally automate the process for phenomenal results.

Affiliate marketing is some sort of business
relationship established between a merchant and
his affiliates.  In affiliate marketing, an
affiliate agrees to direct some traffic to a
merchant’s website.  If that traffic is converted
into some kind of action, like a visitor purchasing
a product on the merchant’s website or a visitor
becoming a lead for the company, the affiliate
who directed the traffic will be compensated.
Compensation may take the form of either a percentage
sales commission for the sales generated or a
fixed fee predetermined upon the application of
the affiliate on the merchant’s affiliate program.

Promising a lot of benefits both for the merchants
and the affiliates, affiliate marketing has become
one of the most popular online marketing methods
today.  In fact, almost every merchant or retailer
site today offers an affiliate program that any one
can join into.  Most retailers would entice people
to become affiliates or members of their program by
promising great benefits like large commissions,
lifetime commissions, click through incomes and alot
of other benefits.  But would all these affiliate
programs bring off the same benefits?

Most affiliate programs would pay you, as an
affiliate, a one-time commission for every sale
or lead you brought to the merchant’s website.
Commissions for this kind of affiliate programs
are usually large, ranging from 15% to a high of
about 60%.  Other affiliate programs would pay
you a fixed fee for every click through or traffic
you send to the merchant’s site.  Programs like
this often pay a smaller fee for every click
through, usually not getting any larger than
half a dollar.  The good thing about this kind
of program, however, is that the visitor won’t
have to purchase anything in order for the
affiliate to get compensated.

Another type of affiliate program is the residual
income affiliate program.  Residual affiliate
programs usually pay only a small percentage of
sales commission for every sale directed by the
affiliate to the merchant’s site.  This commission
often comes only in the range of 10% to 20% sales
commission.  Because of this, many people ignore
residual affiliate program and would rather opt
for the high paying one-time commission affiliate
program.  Are these people making a mistake, or
are they making the right decision?

We can’t tell, for sure, if people are making a
mistake by choosing a high paying one-time
commission affiliate program.  But we can
definitely say that they are making a large
mistake if they ignore residual affiliate
programs.  Residual affiliate programs would
indeed pay at a lower rate, but merchants
offering such kind of programs would generally
pay you regular and ongoing commissions for a
single affiliate initiated sale!  That means,
for the same effort you made in promoting a
particular affiliate program, you get paid only
once in a one-time commission program, and a
regular and ongoing commission for a residual
program!

So, are the benefits of promoting residual
affiliate programs clearer to you now?  Or
are they still vague?  If they are still vague,
then let’s make them a bit clearer with this
example.

Suppose there are two online merchants both
offering web hosting services on their sites.
The first merchant offers a one-time commission
type of affiliate program that pays $80 for
every single affiliate initiated sale.  The
second merchant also offers an affiliate program,
but this time a residual affiliate program
that pays only $10 for every single affiliate
initiated sale.  As an affiliate, we may get
attracted at once at what the first merchant
is offering, as $80 is definitely a lot larger
than $10.  But by thinking things over before
actually getting into them, one may be able
to see that the second merchant is offering
us more opportunity to earn a larger amount
of money.

Supposed you have directed traffic to the
merchant and it converted into a sale, you’ll
get paid once by the first merchant for the
sale you have initiated.  But with the second
merchant, you’ll get paid monthly for as long
as the customer you have referred to the merchant
continues to avail of the web hosting service.
That means that for the same effort of getting
one customer to avail of the merchant’s service,
you get paid monthly in residual affiliate
programs while you only get paid once in a
one-time commission type of affiliate programs.

So, are residual affiliate programs worth promoting?
Definitely yes, because you virtually get more
money from these types of affiliate programs in
the long run!  And would residual affiliate programs
work best for you?  Probably not, probably yes.
It is not really for me to tell.  But with the
benefits that residual affiliate marketing can
provide, it would really be unwise to ignore such
programs.

income stream method?
