The Power of Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing, what is it? Mlm, Passive Income, Selling Insurance Policies, Ways Earn Passive, Great Way Earn, Income Online, Income Stream

Passive income is indeed a wonderful thing. In fact many people are glad that they understand what it is and strive to pursue as much of these passive income as possible. The main reason is that Passive income can get you close to the freedom that everyone wants. So what exactly is a passive income? In short passive income is the kind of income that pays you over and over again just for working one time or for less work. A good example of this kind of income is selling insurance policies. When you sell an insurance policy, it will continue to pay you over and over again as long as the buyer continues to pay for their insurance premium on time.

Another good example of a passive income is what we see in some of those MLM plans where you will get enough down lines in under them and get paid automatically for a long time. While selling insurance and working your MLM business is a very good passive income source, we need to understand that it isn’t meant for everyone especially when it comes to selling in real life. This is why many people have taken to the internet in search for passive income online.

So the question is… are there any passive income to be found online? The quick and precise answer would be yes. There are many ways to earn passive income online and the good thing is this… you’ll never have to cold call anyone, you’ll never have to go face to face selling to anyone. It’s amazing and frankly is sounds too good to be true. This is why some MLM companies actually move their marketing business from offline to online. That’s right, there are MLM companies in the online world and you can actually join them for a good passive income. However, one will have to be careful and do their research before joining an online MLM program online. There are many scams online and there are of course legit offers online as well. Perhaps one of the weaknesses for online MLM is that the training provided isn’t as good as some of those offline MLM companies.

However there are many other ways to earn a passive income online besides MLM products. The best thing about Passive income is definitely in the freedom that comes together with success. Making money with a day job will never give you the freedom that you want. You are stuck in a 9-5 working hour until you retire. With enough passive income, you could retire early or go on a vacation anytime you want and you will still earn money every day from your passive income efforts.

Take some of those Clickbank merchants for example. When those merchants have a strong army of affiliates that sell for them, they are practically financially free. They won’t even have to work for more traffic; instead their affiliates will continue to make money for them while they do nothing or go on a long vacation. That is freedom with money we are talking about and that’s the true power of a system that can generate money for you endlessly without you having to lift a finger.

Make more money with passive income.

Another argument that people would talk about when it comes to passive income is that if you are stacking up your passive income sources, you will make more money that any career climber can ever hope for and you will earn more money than some business entrepreneurs. Why is this? Let me explain. You will make more money from these two kinds of people because… for example, with one passive income stream you are making $2k a month, but with the extra time that you get (because of passive income does not take too much of your time when it is up and running by itself) you will be able to go out and set up even more passive income streams.

Imagine stacking 5 or 10 of different passive income streams… your cash and income will just grow exponentially while day job chasers will be limited to their rank and promotions while most business owners will hit a limit eventually unless they learn to expand their business, free their own time and outsource their work.

How else can you earn a passive income online?

Well so far we know that there’s MLM online and you can create a hit product and get an army of affiliate to promote your products. Another great way to earn a good passive income is to actually promote affiliate products that pay a recurring commission. For example, if you are promoting for autoresponder software, with every referral you will get paid every single month until they cancels. This means you work to get one autoresponder buyer and you get paid for a very long time. It is pretty much like selling insurance policies in this case where each policy that you sell will get you money every month.

Yet another great way to earn a passive income would be to create softwares that everyone will want to use but charge them an affordable monthly fee. However, you need to make sure that your software is unique and not easily duplicable so that people will not steal your idea and sell it for a one-time fee instead. If you are able to create such software, all you need to do next is to focus on building your members and you will be financially free in no time.

Of course, all of these sound really easy on paper, but in actual fact, it does take a lot of work and effort for it to become a reality. Hence make sure that you set your goals and plans right and work todays your financial freedom. Always stay focused and make sure to ignore all distractions… why would you want to get distracted from a path of passive income where freedom awaits right?

List Building Tips

rapid retail profits affiliate marketingList building, list building and more list building! Everywhere you go and available at every corner on the internet, you will hear people absolutely raving about list building. It’s not like anything else that you’ve ever seen before. And the best part, the effectiveness of list building is showing no sign of slowing down at all. The best thing you could have ever done to help you with your business online would be listing building and that would be already a huge understatement.

Why is that you asked? Well investing your time, effort and money into list building will pay you back in ten folds in the long term. The bigger your list, the more traffic you will have. It’s like having an entire army of buyers that listens to very command that you will give out. Imagine earning thousands of dollars every time you send out an email. How cool is that? Unlike some marketers who reply on traffic coming in from Google or the other search engines, your list traffic will not die on you. What we are saying is that some traffic sources such as Google is out of your control. If these traffic sources decide to ban your account for no reason, you are pretty much doomed.

However, with a list of your own, you pretty much own your own traffic source. So it’s is pretty much a very secure way of making a living online. The hard part is how you can build this list that you need and how fast can you grow it into a sizable list that has the firepower to bring in enough money for you to live a comfortable life. If you have ever wondered how and where you could get the traffic to build your list fast then you will be delighted to see all the ideas that we are sharing here on this article today.

Paid Traffic Source.

One of the best places to start getting traffic to your landing page for the purpose of list building would essentially be the paid traffic source. Why is this so? The reason here is simple. Speed. One of the best advantages of getting paid traffic is the speed that you will acquire the traffic that you ordered. Unlike some of the free traffic sources out there which demands a lot of patience and hard work, with a paid traffic source, all you need to get the traffic you need is to pay and the traffic will start channeling into your landing page in less than 24 hours. Free traffic may take up to months before you see the first sign of traffic depending on where you acquire your traffic.

Banner Advertising

One of the king of paid advertising still survives even today. It is known as banner advertising. It is the source of income for many successful blogs. And rightfully so too because banner advertising can still be quite effective as well as impressive if it is done right which is contrary to popular believes that banner advertising does not work anymore. Sure banner advertisers will have to deal with banner blindness, but such a small problem can be quickly remedied with a change to the banner. Often, banner advertisers with a winning banner will do little tweaks to the banner such as changing the color of the border or changing the picture of the female model within the banner to maintain the banner’s effectiveness.

One of the main reasons to why banner advertising still works is because you can target your users effectively by using sites like Quantcast. With proper demographics you can essentially reach your target audience effectively. With proper demographic targeting you would be able to effectively find your target market, market to them and then move on to another site to get even more traffic out of it. The best part of it all is that with banner advertising, a lot of these banners are paid by impression. What this means is that if you have a very effective and click inducing banner, you actually pay a lot less than platforms that charges you for every click that you get.

Ezine Solo Ads.

Another of the traditional ways to advertise your online business and build your list is to get traffic from Ezine Solo Ads. Again with this kind of traffic you are able to target your solo ads with great effectiveness. The main thing that you need to understand before getting into a purchase on a solo ad is that you need to know the amount of reach you are going to get with an Ezine. You need to communicate with the owner of the Ezine to find out who are the people that opt-ins to their Ezine and what Ezine are they accustomed to getting.

Which proper information, you should be able to craft a campaign that is suitable and then use it to cleverly market to them with great effectiveness. The better you get at finding a suitable Ezine that has your target market, the better you will do with your Solo Ads. Another great factor that will determine your success with the solo ad is your landing page and of course we must not forget the fact that your email swipe that you will be using will directly contribute to the amount of traffic that you get. As the saying goes ‘Practice makes perfect’ so be sure to try your best to learn and not be afraid to learn from your mistakes and grow from it along the way.

PPC.

Finally, we arrive to a prime of the paid traffic source. Nothing beats a strong PPC campaign. Not only are you able to effectively choose your target market, you can even track and tweak your campaign and optimize your campaign so that you won’t have to pay much for the traffic and yet acquire the most desirable results for your business. There is without a doubt the reason why PPC is the king when it comes to paid traffic is because of the conversions that you will get from PPC traffic. Mind you, not only does a PPC traffic converts into becoming your list, more importantly you can get PPC traffic to convert into cash as well as long as you know what you are doing.

Therefore if you are into paid traffic, think no further and test it out today as you might see a success if you have a great converting offer that everyone is looking for.

Everywhere you go, there will be people trying their best to market their product to you… be it legitimate or a junk product. Hence it won’t be a surprise then if one would feel as if they got sucked into a pile of quicksand where the more you struggle the faster you will sink.

And if you are thinking of getting some help from the so called gurus that are sending you marketing offers each day, then you are in for a shock. Most of the gurus that you contact will not reply you especially if it isn’t a support question. And if it is a support question, you will probably be hearing from their support staff instead. At most you from a lengthy email filled with your cries for help and questions that needs to be answered, all you get from a reply from the gurus are just short one liners that only answers part of your question if not at all. So you are out of luck then to get help and thus you go about buying more courses on the internet? Well the good news is, there are actually places where you can get help and useful information helping you propel through your newbie-hood if you know where to find them.

Forums is the first place you should visit for help are the forums within your niche and the internet marketing niche. The forums are filled with helpful individuals that will try to give you the best answers that you need. You see, the way this works is that ‘Forum Marketers’ try to be as helpful as possible in order to get their brand and name out there and when they do that consistently, their signatures with a link to their offers get seen. This means they get a lot more exposure to their offers for free and they will also get a lot of trust and reputation which helps with conversions as well.

This is then very good news for those who are new in the game and wishes to get help for free online. You can ask pretty much anything you want on the forums. However, the only problem is that you might not get the best answers from everyone, but surely there will be people who are qualified and are willing to help you out. You need to be extra careful as well not to get on the bad side of some of the people in the forum as they could be quite harsh sometimes. All you need to do is to be humble and ask in a polite manner.

Another thing that you should be aware of is that you should try your best read the rules of the forum and only open up a new thread is your question has never been asked before. Before you ask, you should do a search on the forums first to see if there are others before you who have asked similar questions. Try not to duplicate your post and post your thread in the right categories. People in the forums are very particular about these things. Other than that, if you don’t break any rules and follow them closely you will find that a good forum can be the starting place for your success.

YouTube is like a huge library of videos filled with all kinds of videos. The good thing is, within YouTube you should be able to find a lot of ‘How to’ videos making it a very good place if you need a step by step guidance on some of the technical works required in the internet marketing field. What this means to you is that whenever you are stuck or confused on a technical problem you can search YouTube for a quick step by step guide to help you get things done. For example, if you are unsure how to install a WordPress blog, all you have got to do is go to YouTube and do a simple search on how to install a WordPress blog and you’ll be sure to find it there. Not only that, you could even find how to videos on the simplest task such as what softwares you can use to create PDF files or how to use MS word to edit your work. There is tons of great information in there waiting to be explored.

Google is very useful when it comes to search for information that you need to help you for just about anything in life. Hence the term GIYF which means, Google is your friend. For example, if you are looking to find out how you can start your own blog, all you have to do is do a quick search on Google and sure enough you should be able to find the most relevant search results to what you are looking for.

You can use Google to find tutorials, or even relevant courses that you might need to help you out with your business. At any phase of your online business lifetime, you can always consult Google for free for the best information out there. More often than not, you might find useful information being shared free online via Google search engine which are better than those that you find on a paid course. Even expert marketers will still make use of Google to help them improve their business.

For example, a veteran marketer who is trying to look for ways to improve their landing page conversion will do a search on Google for ‘best landing page examples’ or ‘proven landing page templates’. This kind of search will get you very good answers that you just might need to help your business grow. You know what they say… ask and ye shall receive because… GIYF (Google is your friend).

What’s happening in the internet marketing world

The world of internet marketing is very dynamic and it is very hard to actually keep track of everything and be updated at the same time. As an internet marketer we are already too busy with all the task at hands and one may find it a challenge to keep up with all the news and trends that is happening all around us. Nevertheless, no matter how busy we are, there is no stopping the world from adapting and moving with the trends and evolving every single day.

Since it is important for an internet marketer to be informed of the crucial changes that we are seeing in the internet world, we’ve prepared a quick summary of what is going on in the internet marketing world and you will learn and understand how you should move your business and adapt to all the changes that may affect your online business for good or bad.

An estimate of more than 90% of the social network users will be on Facebook in 2013.

That’s right; the majority of the social network users are now on Facebook. That is roughly more than 3/4 of the total online population. That this means is that if you are going to be doing any social marketing at all, your focus should be on Facebook because that’s where everyone is. This is the case today and there is no sign of the trend stopping anytime soon.

Therefore your investments and efforts into Facebook marketing will stay to work for you for a long time. One can no longer ignore the presence of Facebook as a great marketing tool. However, you should also be careful while marketing on Facebook because it isn’t going to be as straight forward as it is with traditional marketing.

The reason here is simple, the people that live in Facebook are not there looking to buy as an intention. In fact most are there to enjoy themselves and to entertain themselves. Connecting with others and playing games on Facebook seems to be the big thing today. While the pool is full of fishes, these fishes are not HUNGRY from your bait. So it does take a certain amount of effort and skill to actually catch these fishes.

Most Facebook marketers will actually try to get these people out of Facebook first before marketing to them. This means they will try to get these people to opt-in to their newsletter and only market to them later on via the email channel. Of course there are many other variations to how one can do this but it seems to work for many people for now.

Around 53.5% of the US population which is around 70.8% of internet users has begun watching videos online.

That’s right folks… people are gradually moving away from the television and spending more time matching videos online… thanks to YouTube and some of the most popular video sites. What this ultimately means to you is that there has never been a better time than now to give the video marketing world a try. It might pay off and it might not, but we do know is that people are generally accepting the idea of watching an online video more and more today.

To get things going, you should always make sure that your videos are compelling and start with a short video first. Note that not all your videos should be about selling a product. You can actually start connecting with the people within your niche first with short videos. As long as your videos are getting the attention and views, you will get the branding awareness for yourself or your product.

Over 88.1% of US internet users ages 14 and above will research on a product online before making a purchase.

Make no mistake about it; the people online today are getting smarter. And since the internet is so available these days, people will not hesitate to do in depth research on a product before they decide to make a purchase, especially if the product isn’t cheap. Some of the more popular ways to research about your product is to read your product page directly, do a quick search on a forum or ask a question about your product on a popular forum. Another great way to find out more about your product is to actually check out what other people think about your product in the social networks such as Facebook and other similar social networking sites.

Hence as an internet marketer, your reputation today is so much more important than how it was many years ago. You need to be extra careful with your product and try your best to get people to like and recommend your product. If not, you will find it very hard to get your product off your shelves. The more people like, recommend or share information about your product, the better it will do. Think of all the viral traffic that you are going to get from those entire social network sharing.

Mobile Internet is on a rise. Over 94% of Smartphones users are now mobile internet users.

Here’s a fact for you. Mobile shoppers have reached 70+ million and what that means is that the chances of your product getting viewed by people on a mobile device are on a rise. The question now is if you and your business are ready for this wave? If not, you could potentially be leaving a lot of money on the table. Hence, you should try your best to try and optimize your landing pages into a mobile landing page.

With a mobile page, you can make sure that people who arrive on your site will enjoy a smoother experience. If you choose to use a mobile site, not only are you helping your customers think of you as a professional, you will also give them an impression that you care for them. Imagine arriving on a normal blog with your mobile device. You will have a hard time going through all the information and everything will feel rather messy and unorganized. However with a mobile site, everything will feel in place and this can help you improve your sales volume like never before. Therefore, try to do a check on your average traffic and find out if you should start moving some of your important sites into a mobile friendly version instead.

The search for the perfect niche
