Everybody dreams of being rich! Some of us don't just want to be rich... We want to be rich beyond our wildest dreams! We want to be able to live like the rich and famous, and we want our riches to continue for the rest of our natural lives.
Anyone who is truly wealthy will tell you that you never get rich working for someone else. To make the kind of money you need to live a wealthy lifestyle you have to be in command of your own destiny, or marry well. Marrying well is okay I suppose,
The majority of affiliates begin by adding merchant partner links to their sites in order to earn commissions on purchases made by site visitors they deliver to the merchant. Affiliates earn no commissions if the would-be buyer lands on the merchant site, but decides against buying. This type of program is called pay for performance, and is popular with many merchants because they have no upfront costs if sales don't materialize. Some merchants are, however, re-evaluating their programs be
Off page optimization is the term used for the actions taken off the actual web page that positively affect the performance of the page and the site. This includes everything from links from other sites, exchanges of links with complementary but non-competing sites, and the actions taken offline that affect the performance of the site.
Links from other sites are votes of confidence by these sites, that say that they feel information on the "linked to" site is valuable to their site vis
As a successful affiliate you have the ability to promote your site and your merchant partners products off as well as on the Web. One way is as a speaker. Through experience you've learned more than you realize about some very specialized techniques that others are anxious to know. And you've learned the hard way more than once how to recover from the pitfalls of this ever-changing field.
As a speaker you become regarded as an authority in your field – whether it is the calculatio
When you, as an advertiser or affiliate join affiliate networks such as Commission Junction or LinkShare, you have the ability to run reports of the sales that show you the sales made on merchant sites as a result of click-thru's by visitors to your site. There's almost no variation of report you can't generate. (The same is possible also for the merchant.) If you have negotiated individual programs with merchants, they also will provide reports that will tell you the number of click-thru'
Many affiliates consider themselves information sources, or niche environments where people with specific interests meet and communicate. They (and their visitors) consider them to be experts in their fields, but they often don't think of themselves as a brand. Thinking of their site in terms of brand identity is a jump for them. But branding isn't just for monolithic companies like Microsoft or Procter & Gamble.
You have your own unique identity, you do things a certain way, people
As an affiliate you may not have a license to sell stocks, bonds, firearms, prescription drugs or to loan money or provide investment advice. These businesses are considered regulated businesses, and representations about or the provision of their services can only be done by individuals with appropriate licenses.
However, as an affiliate you still have the ability to "hand off" a site visitor who is interested in the services of one of these businesses. But you can only do this if yo
As an affiliate it's likely that you're accustomed to writing product comparisons to enrich your website. If only it were that easy to compare the two largest and most popular affiliate networks. Both have an array of high quality merchant partners that affiliates can sign on with to forward buyers and receive commissions. There's no reason why an affiliate wouldn't want to deal with both networks. The terms and conditions for participation vary somewhat, but both have in place mechanisms
Thinking of being part of the growing website hosting industry? There are a variety of entry-level reseller solutions that offer different benefits to different types of user. Two common ones are briefly discussed here.
The website hosting industry continues to grow, despite the well-known "dot com bust" at the turn of the century. Though there is far less venture capital flowing into the hosting market, the demand for websites has not abated. As internet access spreads the number of po
When you've spent time, major time, developing a successful affiliate site, you've learned things it would take others years of trial and error to learn themselves. Information you can sell. Perhaps it isn't about creating the perfect affiliate website. Or how to make money focusing a site on guys who delight in finding certain software bugs. But something that has a large and broad audience, such as an aspect of blogging behavior.
Offline publishing takes months, maybe years to get
