Putting Your Destiny into Your Own Hands with Affiliate Marketing

Have you ever dreamed of putting your destiny into your own hands? Or have you imagined that you could earn commission on a brand-name or niche product just by placing a link on your website or in your email? If you have, you may want to try affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is essentially a website network. It is a modern variation of the practice of paying finders’ fees for introducing new clients to a business. Nowadays, affiliate marketing is primarily conducted online as the number of people surfing the Internet for what they want is growing exponentially. It is a popular method of promoting web business in which an affiliate is rewarded for driving traffic (visitor, subscriber or customer) to merchants’ websites through his efforts. Commission may be made depending on a certain value of registrant (pay per lead), sale (pay per sale), or any combination. Simply put, it’s about paying people money for helping merchants sell products.

Let’s say you created a website dedicated to promoting computer repair services/consultations and reaching out to potential customers. While your service is basically fixing PC problems, you notice that your clients also need registry cleaner utilities for the maintenance of their computers. In this case, affiliate marketing could involve contacting software developers selling registry fix or repair products, posting links to their sites on your website, and collecting a percentage of profit for each purchase those companies receive. In the long run, you can exchange links or sign contracts with the companies you are affiliated with. When someone browsing for computer maintenance or repair service on their websites clicks the link to your website and then decides to contact you for a consultation, the website that sends business your way will then receive commission.

In fact, you are not required to have your own business as far as affiliate marketing is concerned. You can make a living selling any products without having to take orders or maintain your inventory.

How is this done? Build up a website to promote the products you are interested in. Make sure to include appealing articles about the products. After your website is established, contact online companies selling similar products and set up affiliate agreements. Those who hit your site and become regular visitors will inevitably be interested in ordering the products advertised on your site. Once an advertisement link is clicked by your site visitor and a purchase is made, you will receive commission.

If you don’t have a website, you can still earn money through affiliate marketing by generating targeted traffic to the websites you’re affiliated with. Google Adwords is the most important PPC (Pay-Per-Click) advertising system on the Internet. It allows you to directly advertise your affiliate links in the Google search engine results and on their partner networks.

The key to be successful in affiliate marketing is simply driving traffic to your site consistently. The more hits on your website, the more chances you have of gaining profit from purchases made through your links. Promoting your website through eZine and Banner advertising and providing free newsletters for subscribers would be promising ways to generate traffic to your website. Once your site consistently achieves a lower ranking in Alexa toolbar (which means your website is popular), other website owners or companies will be more likely to join forces with you in affiliate agreements.

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Here are some simple steps on how to get the freebies casinos offer their players.

The forward approach will work well in this situation. This is where you call the casinos and ask them what they will offer you to come to their casino to do some gambling. In most cases the casinos may offer you some free meals and maybe even a show. If you call and tell them you are bringing a group of people to their casinos they may even go as far as to give you a suite for yourself and give a break on the other rooms for your trip.

A variation of the forward approach is to call a casino and get them to give you a comp then call all the other casinos and see if they will match or beat the other casinos offer. If you can convince them you are worth them bringing you to their casino they may just try to outbid the previous casino, and if they really want you they may pick you up from your home or the airport depending on where you live in a limo and convince them you are a high roller in the casinos a…

Five Tips for Making Money from Home During the Pandemic?

TORONTO -- Even in the midst of a pandemic and near-shutdown of the economy, there are ways to improve your financial standing.

Financial coach David Lester appeared on CTV's Your Morning Thursday, to offer five suggestions of ways anyone can make money right now, even from home.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left a lot of people in a position where they're spending a lot more time at home.
