Affiliate Revenue #3 | Who To Invite To The Party

Maybe you’re an owner of one of those online businesses and you have ventured into the world of affiliate marketing in an effort to grow affiliate revenue. You’ve visited the testimonial websites and have seen the claims of $200,000 annually from affiliate revenue and you’re interested in making some of that money for yourself.

So maybe you’ve launched an all out search for affiliate programs and have signed up for several hoping that a full compliment of affiliates in one portal will make you a rich entrepreneur. The bad news is things aren’t working out the way you thought they would. The money isn’t coming in by the wheelbarrow full and you are becoming discouraged.

Affiliate Revenue #2 | Tapping Into The Cash Cow?

Commercial radio stations will sometimes fill up their advertising slots with a type of commercial known as Per Inquiry (PI). This type of advertising guarantees absolutely nothing up front, but the radio station does receive a commission when a listener uses an individualized toll free number to purchase the advertised product.

The reasons some radio (and television) stations accept this type of advertising is because there is the potential for revenue whereas that potential goes away if they choose not to accept this type of advertising.

This is the same premise behind affiliate revenue strategies online. In this scenario businesses offer other, secondary, website owners the potential to earn income when the secondary website is successfully used as a portal between the potential customer and the primary website.

In essence when you become an affiliate you are provided a means to track incoming traffic. If the individual purchasing a product started the process at your website then …

Affiliate Revenue #1 | Effective Marketing

Spider bots creep through websites slurping up keywords and phrases. They check for back links to other sites and work to properly evaluate the site for ranking in their search engines. This process is taking place on a continual basis and demonstrates something potentially exciting for those who are participants in affiliate revenue programs.

The fine strands that hold the web together for search engine data is representative of the multiple fine strands that can be created in a networking environment for affiliate revenue businesses. One strand is never quite enough so when many strands combine the overall effect if positive for all involved.

When you are able to establish aggregated inbound links from affiliates your primary website can receive a higher trust ranking in search engine placement. The greater the trust factor in your site the greater the trust factor for customers and prospects. The greater the trust factor among customers the great conversion rates you will find.

Mistakes Affiliates Make | Help For Newbies

Mistakes affiliates make, always is generally from a lack of information. Yes, we know there are many ebooks showing affiliates the way to go. But remember, even the gurus had a learning curve. Gurus made mistakes too.

The key for affiliates today is to learn as much as they can even as they join affiliate programs. The major portion of affiliate sales are raked in by only 5% of the affiliates! Please don’t let that information discourage you.

Newbies especially, be encouraged. Here is the other side of the coin! A research firm Forrester Research, indicates that we affiliates will have $280 billion dollars/year to divide up amongst ourselves by 2008. Walk don’t run, take your time, and learn the ropes. There is hope for us! But try to avoid the following:

The Use of Forums for Viral Marketers

Recently, forum marketing has been touted as a kind of free, organic, viral marketing. But because so many viral marketers go into forums with the intention of marketing products or other services, their actions and attitude unwittingly causes the exact opposite of the desired effect.

Forums aren’t marketplaces but when used that way, the viral marketers’ actions become offensive and will only inspire the wrath of fellow members and marketers, not to mention moderators who can close them from the site with the click of a button.

In order to be effective, this kind of marketing carries a certain degree of commitment, responsibility and respect. The first requirement is to take a personal interest in the main topic of the forums. Not only does that mean be apart of the forum regularly, but it also means developing a good relationship with both other members and the moderators, as well as taking an active interest in helping other people. Of course, it also means abiding by and all rules …

Super Bowl Advertising And Marketing For Perfection

The game kicks off in about one hour and we have already seen some of the high-priced ads.  Here are my comments on how the big guys do it.

#1.  Pepsi.  Pepsi has an outside-the-box ad.  The ad is done by two deaf guys trying to find out where Bob's house is.  It is done completely in sign with sub-titles.  This is a first.  We will see if this is labeled "offensive" even if the National Association of the Deaf approved it.

#2.  Budweiser.  A perennial mainstay.  Wouldn’t be a Super Bowl without Bud and all of their commercials.

#3.  Miller Lite.  Bud's main competition that seems to always be poking fun at Bud.

#4. GoDaddy.  GoDaddy is always controversial which gets them the most publicity.  You may see racier ads at their web site.

#5. P&G.  Proctor and Gamble will air its first ever Super Bowl commercial featuring Tide.

#6.  Vitoria's Secret.Marketing lingerie with hot chicks to guys makes sense to me.

There are more, many, many more.

Some comments in general. 

Debunking the Content Duplication Myth That You Think You Knew About "PLR Content"?

If there’s one thing that scares an internet marketer more than anything else, it has to be the fear of having all their sites de-listed because of duplicate content. But what if I said you had a better chance of being ‘eaten by a shark’ then you would of being picked up for violating this regulation set out by Google and the other search engines!

Debunking The Myth Once And For All

So when in the past has a site been de-listed directly as a result of using PLR content? Very rarely I can tell you! In fact I haven’t met a single marketer who uses PLR content that has been caught violating the duplicate content rule. So what does this mean? It means that whatever you’ve been told about the connection between PLR content and the duplicate content rule is for want of another word completely ‘bogus’.

We all know that when you purchase PLR content, the chances are you’re going to have to share it with a certain number of marketers. This in affect has been a major deterrent from purchasing su…

When Trying to Find a Good Idea for Your Book Title | Here's What to Do?

Go into a bookstore and browse through the titles in the bestseller section. Book publishing companies hire high-priced people to come up with a title or “headline,” because book publishing is a big business; therefore a lot of contemplation goes into making their titles as commercially-viable as possible. Many well-known and highly successful books started out with other titles. According to Dan Poynter, the father of self-publishing:

• Tomorrow is Another Day became Gone With The Wind. 
• Blossom and the Flower became Peyton Place. 
• The Rainbow Book became Free Stuff For Kids.
• The Squash Book became the Zucchini Book. 
• John Thomas and Lady Jane became Lady Chatterly’s Lover.
• Trimalchio in West Egg became Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
• Something that Happened became Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men.
• Catch 18 became Catch 22

While you are at the store, notice how the other browsers pick up a book, scan the front and back cover, and then put it down again before going on to another book…

What You should Know about Personal Bankruptcy

It is very common today for most Americans who are within the bracket of the middle class to find themselves in various pools of debts. This is somewhat typically attributed to the ever difficult job handling, heightening costs of medical bills, and the frequent divorces that result to the growing child support and alimony payments. It is also very common for people to realize that repaying their loans is that hard on their part. This is the sad side of it. When people avail of loans they are that excited to get their hands on those but when it comes to settling their debts, they seem to be out of their minds.

Those who intend to honestly imply their intention of starting anew are therefore helped out by the personal bankruptcy lawyers with regards to subscribing to the applicable provisions of the pe…

The people, especially the creditors, never forget that you've once been incapacitated to pay off your debts.

Should You File Bankruptcy?

Whether or not to file bankruptcy is not an easy decision to make. There are certain things you must think about before you decide to file for bankruptcy. You should definitely consider the pros and cons of your actions.

If you file for bankruptcy, you will be protected by the law against collectors. This means that filing for bankruptcy will give you a bit of breathing space. This can be a great help when you are panicky and wondering where to get money to pay off your creditors.

When you file for bankruptcy, you only pay off the debts that you can afford. People who file for bankruptcy often do so because their debts have exceeded their assets. What does this mean? Well, you can see that although your debts will be reduced to what you can afford to pay, all of the assets of the company will still be used to pay off those debts.

Some people call filing for bankruptcy "a new beginning". This is true in every sense of the word. When you file for bankruptcy, you will truly hav…

Seeing the Real Side of Bankruptcy

Everyone loves the idea of being financially secure. That is why it has always been a point of most people who think of their overall welfare to invest on anything that would click to the public. Putting up a business is not entirely easy.
