So you want to make some extra money online by being an Affiliate Marketer. Affiliate marketing is fun and you’ve got lots of choices for what you can promote PLUS lots of places to advertise at no cost or low cost. I don’t have to even tell you what to market, you have so many choices. Companies want people to become an Affiliate and market their product online and pay you a commission for doing so. A great gig for anyone who wants to work from home. Amazon may be one of the largest companies familiar to you that offers an Affiliate program. Clickbank is another very familiar name, allowing you to promote thousands of digital products and earn a commission for your efforts. It’s free to get started so you can sign up for a free account and learn more about how affiliate marketing works without making an investment. If you are new to online marketing, here are five essentials you need to know so you can maximize what you earn as an Affiliate. 1. For those serious about building an online business and who want to market a number of programs, product, services or opportunities, you will want to start with a home base for your activities. The best way to do this is by booking your own domain name. This will cost you as little as $10 a year and establishes a permanent, reputable home for your business. If you are doing affiliate marketing on the side from your full time occupation (like so many do), it will also help your activities separate. Having your own domain name makes you and your business look more solid, accountable and professional. Your domain name can be your name, a business name, a catch-all name for your online activities that includes a few key words. You can book a domain name with any domain registrar, do a search at Google or Bing to find an option that works best for you. 2. In my role as a consultant to small and home business owners, I also recommend a system for organizing your business. A pen and paper will work initially. Over time you will come to recognize that as an online marketer time, and the saving of time, is critical to being able to market often and efficiently. You see, most websites that offer advertising require you to sign up for Membership account, and that means multiple user name and passwords at what could eventually be dozens and dozens of sites. So I recommend, a Password Manager program called Roboform. As your online business grows and you start to lose your sanity keeping track of all your user names and passwords you will come to realize the incredible organization value of a program like Roboform. It will make your logins or form filling, much faster and that means less time trying to recall or find passwords and more time for doing what makes you money – promotion. 3. If you are new to online marketing you need to understand that it is not enough to promote. You need a reliable method for tracking your ad results. In other words, if you post an ad, you want to know how many clicks you got on your ad. If you don’t know what kind of hit rate you are getting you have no idea of the effectiveness of your ad, or the advertising source. These programs that allow you to do this are called Ad Tracker Software or Ad Analysis software. Most are free or very low cost. You can get started with a free Webmaster Tools account from Google. Some of the companies you advertise with may also offer you an ad tracking tool within their member area 4. I talk to many new online marketers, and they will tell me they have some amazing product that will sell itself it is so good. This is absolute nonsense. ALL products, no matter how good they are, need to be promoted to sell. If you want to make online sales you need to promote constantly. Understand that PROMOTION is what drives sales – it is so important that 80 – 90% of your time in building your online business should be devoted to promotion. I don’t mean surfing, researching, or face booking and tweeting with your friends. I mean time spent actually posting ads online at classified ad sites, forums, blogs, safelists, traffic exchanges, pay per click, joint ventures, ad swaps, and email marketing. If you want to make money online as an affiliate marketer know that constant, consistent promotion is critical. Some see this as a very boring part of being an online marketer, get over it, promotion is what you have to do to earn money. 5. Don’t do this alone. Affiliate marketing can be very frustrating if you don’t know what you are doing and not seeing any results for your efforts. If you are determined to make money online, then invest in yourself, take a course, download eBooks, participate in a webinar, find a coach, training program or otherwise so you can learn the best methods.

Have you ever wondered how some businesses got to be so successful on the internet? Their success did not come by luck, but it came by knowing how to market effectively on the internet. You can also gain that knowledge. Find out some of the things that these marketers did to achieve success. A great internet marketing tip to increase the amount of visitors who will purchase your products is to reword headlines and testimonials in order too see what type of information gets better results. Try rewording titles and headlines while including the same information to see which ones work better than others. Use Email marketing effectively. If you allow your customers to sign up for a mailing list, you are going to be able to attract them back to your site by emailing them the latest products and sales. You can even include a special discount to them for signing up to receive the emails from your site. Try including small free products when your customers buy something from your website. You can use buttons, bumper stickers, window decals, pens, etc. Go with products that you can put your name or logo on so that they remember where it came from and other people can see where it came from as well. If you are attempting to promote a product, service, or business using a web site, create a “news” page about your business. Having a press release up on your site, especially if you post new ones on a regular basis, will increase your search engine visibility and make your site seem more up-to-date to visitors. Use terms like “guaranteed” and “money back,” in your marketing campaigns. Customers like knowing that you stand behind your product enough to offer a guarantee that they will be satisfied. It will also help people who are on the fence about purchasing your product, go ahead and take the leap, since they feel they can return it if they aren’t happy. Mention the address of your website in your voicemail greetings and include it in your email signature lines. Get the word out to people that you have a web page. Prospective customers have more trust in companies that have online presences and it allows them to see who you are before they even talk to you. When you are trying to use internet marketing for your small business, you should take a look at the content of your site. You want make sure that the information will grab the attention of prospective customers. So, try to add new content often, to prevent people from becoming bored of your site. As you can see, there are many things that you can do to give your internet business a boost. It will take time, effort, and some trial and error. However, if you keeping learning about internet marketing techniques and applying what you have learned, like what you have learned from here, you will achieve the success that you are looking for.

If you want to learn what it takes to become successful with a subject like email marketing, then the tips from this article are going to help you a lot. You want to read through this article with care and see what tips from it, you can use to help to market your site or sites. Your email marketing efforts will give you the best results when you coordinate them with the rest of your marketing campaign. Do not work against yourself by unnecessarily duplicating your efforts in several different marketing channels. Make sure that your use of email, social media, and traditional venues are all designed to work well together. Create an unsubscribe link that works immediately. If a customer unsubscribes from your list, that should be the last mailing they receive from you. In today’s computerized world, there’s no excuse for unscriptions not to be immediate. Customers who continue to receive mailings after they unsubscribe are likely to treat those emails as spam, and respond accordingly. Use your readers to get content for your emails. When your readers ask you question, it makes great fodder for a future email. Answering reader questions in newsletters in this fashion also makes your customers feel more important, because you dedicate part of your newsletter just to them. You can use a traditional Q & A format, or simply state that a user asked you that question and give the answer. If you use images in your email newsletters, put text to the right of the images. Research shows that customers are far more likely to click on a link or button that is placed to the left of an image than one that is placed anywhere else on the page. Everyone knows that email filters are getting more and more strict. Graphics and other things included in emails are blocked out, so a reader might not even see what you are trying to say. Therefore, a good piece of advice is to use plain text with a hyperlink to your site. To get a better response with your email marketing efforts, you want to create emails that look professional. An email that is not professionally done will come across as spam. If your messages are viewed as spam, that is the quickest way to lose potential customers from your subscriber list. Personalize the Campaign, your emails should address their recipient by name. Software can personalize each email so that it is addressed individually to the recipient. Emails are much more likely to be opened and read when you use the actual name of the recipient rather than “Dear Valued Customer.” So take the time to use your customer’s name, so they don’t just feel as though your letter is simply spam. You should now start to feel more confident when it comes to seeing success with your site or sites. You want to be sure that you apply all the knowledge you gained today with confidence because when you do that you have fun and just become successful with ease as you progress.

In order to achieve the highest level of marketing online success, you need a few basics. These "tools" will make it possible for you to make money and build a real business online. It isn’t a high cost, but it will take some time to find all the tools you need and to learn the skills. I sometimes fear that I sound like a broken record, but I truly do hate to see people work hard only to fail because they simply don’t know what to do or are being misled by others who are only trying to make money. So in order to ensure your own marketing online success, please heed the tips I’m about to give you. I have been doing this for many years and I know what I’m talking about. Most of this information I learned the hard way – by making the very mistakes I’m trying to get you to avoid. Here is what you need to do: 1. Get an education. It doesn’t have to be at your local college, there are many training resources available right online for minimal cost. Also, since these online courses can be accessed any time of the day or night, it is easier for working adults to find the time to complete them. You don’t have to accommodate someone else’s schedule. Many of these courses can be completed in just a few weeks, and you may be able to actually start making some money while you are going through the course. Whatever options you choose just make sure you get educated on how the various parts of marketing online fit together. 2. Check your delusion at the door. Hype seems to be rampant online and if you really want to have any success, you must get, and keep, your expectations in line. If you believe the hype, you will waste a lot of time and money chasing some new "sure thing" after another. To be honest, that is exactly what I did. I was so convinced that my success would happen virtually overnight that when it didn’t I thought I was just doing the wrong thing. It never occurred to me, in the early days at least, that it wasn’t what I was doing that was the problem it was my unrealistic expectations that was causing me so much trouble. Once I accepted that building a business online would require time and attention from me and I started investing those things in my business I started having success. 3. Be consistent in your time. Even if you can only put a few hours a week to working on your business, you can make it work just as long as you invest that few hours a week every single week. Of course, the more time you can put into building your business the sooner you may be able to start earning consistent money, but even with small amounts of time you can still build a business as long as you do it on a consistent basis. Marketing online success hinges on these things. Follow them and you will greatly increase your odds of success. Howard Martell is the Owner of http://HomeProfitCoach.com.

Worldprofit offers a free Associate Membership. It doesn’t cost anything to be a Worldprofit Associate. When someone signs up as a free Associate member under you from a landing page, or one of your promotions, our system will send those people an email with offers and incentives to encourage them to login to their Member area. When they login this is recorded in your Member area in the WHO’S LOGGED IN section and also noted on your Prospect Manager Report. When your Associate logins our Monitors will greet them make them an offer to upgrade to a paid Silver Membership. When someone you refers upgrades to Silver Membership you get the commission.
If your Associate does not login right away to their member area, our system will automatically send them an email every few days with offers and incentives encouraging them to login. This is happening in the background without you having to do anything.
Now you should start to see that as a new member your job is to use the tools and resources we provide to PROMOTE.
The more people you sign up as free Associate members the greater the likelihood of sales as they may go on to buy any number of products or services.
When you sign up Associates you are also building your list so this further increases your power to make sales.
Associates can buy any number of services in their Member area, not just a Silver Membership. They can purchase any of our advertising packages and more, when they do you earn commission on the sales from our referred Associates.
NOTE: You do not receive commission for signing up free Associate members only when a SALE is made.
Remember you have hundreds of products and services you can sell within your Member area to earn commission but EVERYTHING starts by signing up Associate Members. Once they are an Associate Member under you they can buy other products and services we offer – and when they do YOU get the commission.
The reality is that not everyone will upgrade, so by promoting constantly you will increase your signups and ideally increase your commissions.
Now, to recap. Your # 1 job is to PROMOTE. if you don’t know how to do this follow the Lesson Plans of the Bootcamp, and also watch the training videos or attend the LIVE weekly training with George Kosch. Pay special attention to LESSON 3 it is critical to your success.
Many of our Worldprofit Members are actively promoting ClickBank (CB) products.
Recognizing this, we have created for our Worldprofit Members the CB Maximizer.
We introduce you to the CB Maximizer and how you use it to earn money and sell more ClickBank products.
The CB Maximizer was designed to offer you an automated way to sell ClickBank products
What we have done for you is create automated landing pages, here is an example: http://www.cashquest.com/superbonus/
This is a lead generating system to capture the contact information of your prospective buyer. A bonus is offered to entice the reader to enter their contact details, and allow them to optin to receive your mailings. When they optin, the person then goes on to a special autoresponder list. Every two days your prospective buyer will be sent random products from your Clickbank Promo Kit (more on the CB Promo Kit in another lesson). They can optout anytime should they choose to do so. Every 2 days, they will get a CB Product letter with your CLOAKED links. This includes a signature file from our new PROFILE area (right under your name on the top left menu) which includes your promo links. We also include a link for them to get 50,000 free visitors and much much more. That means every 2 days you are marketing EVERYTHING IN YOUR ARSENAL to hundreds of people –> EVERY TWO DAYS!! Think of the money stream this means for you.
PLUS you can add one of your external autoresponders to our system. When you add it you will then be able to add leads to both your Clickbank Maximizer list AND your external aWeber, getResponse, or GVO.
How do you use the CB Maximizer to earn money?
Easy, you send out the letters to all of your safelists in the SAME way you send out the CB promo kit letters. Every day you market just as you would with the regular promo kit except the results change. How? You get leads on your CB Maximizer Autoresponse System!!! And, you get to see who is on and get a DAILY REPORT sent to your email of what is happening in your business.
We urge you to now watch this short screencast video that overviews the CB Maximizer so you can see how it works, and how you earn money with this software.
