My previous post explained the basics of How Affiliate Marketing Works. Today’s post is going to be a little more personal. You may not hear this from many online marketers, but the odds are against your success in Affiliate Marketing.

A little later I will tell you why I say that, but for now, let me just say that I think there’s a good chance you might be better off keeping your day job.

You might think I’m trying to do that “reverse psychology” thing here, but really, I am not. What I am doing is prospecting for leaders for my Affiliate Marketing team and I just want to make it clear that in my experience, the majority of opportunity seekers seem to be better suited for their day jobs. … Read the rest of this entry

How Affiliate Marketing Works

This blog post has turned into two separate posts! My initial plan was to explain why most opportunity seekers are simply not cut out for this business. By way of introduction, the post started with a look at how Affiliate Marketing works.

However, by the time I had the basics of the post mapped out, I realized that it was turning into two topics that did not necessarily complement each other.

So, I separated it into two blog posts to keep it from becoming too long and unwieldy. Today’s post will define what Affiliate Marketing is and how it works. … Read the rest of this entry

My Reason for Shopping Cart Abandonment

There is a lot of discussion in commercial business circles about the issue and “problem” of shopping cart abandonment. That’s where an online shopper places something in the checkout cart, but does not follow through with the purchase.

Many expensive studies have been commissioned and many analysts have devoted a lot of time to discussing this issue and its possible solutions.

Well, I don’t know about other online shoppers, but for me there is one primary reason why I abandon my shopping carts online and it has nothing to do with changing my mind about the item. … Read the rest of this entry

It has become a real challenge for Internet Marketers to fully understand and apply the optimization rules for getting listed in the search engine results. But we still need visitors, so with or without the search engines, we need to find a way.

Search engine optimization has become “technical” once again and as a result, it is easy to get your site, or keywords for your site, delisted or banned from the search engines.

It has gotten to the point where a lot of marketers online have given up on organic traffic from the search engines and are simply focusing on other ways to attract traffic to their website. Here are a few website traffic tips for 2014. … Read the rest of this entry

Persistence Paves the Way to Personal Success

There is a certain quality of character that I think is being lost in this fast-paced age of information in which we live and that quality is persistence. As our world gets faster so do our expectations and we are becoming a generation of impatient people.

So many things are so easily at our fingertips and we have come to expect “instant gratification” in so many areas of our lives.

Computers and the Internet are a good example: we want information and within moments we have answers to our questions and inquiries. Unfortunately, this kind of instant respond does not work in all areas of our lives. … Read the rest of this entry

Tune Up Your Talents to Hit Your Target

When I was young, I used to hear people say things like “It’s a poor workman who blames his tools.” They were suggesting that the tool wasn’t the cause of poor workmanship, it was the workman’s skill with the tools that was the issue.

Hmm. Now that I think of it, I seem to recall more recent instances of that reference around my own home, coming from my spouse! LOL, I guess I’m more of a writer than I am a handyman.

The fact is, the more we work on personal development and improving our abilities and our skills using the tools and resources at our disposal, the more productive we will be and the better quality we will produce. … Read the rest of this entry
