Affiliate Marketing for Beginners

GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

Many people make money online through a process called Affiliate Marketing. It is simple to explain, easy to learn and do, and if you stay focused and work at it diligently, you can create a nice second income with it.

Basically, when you become an affiliate marketer, all you are doing is becoming an independent sales representative for a company that has products or services for sale. YOU do the advertising and the promotion and when you make sales, the company handles the billing and the shipping.

Oh, yes, and the company pays you a sales commission for the sale, too! Some affiliate companies will also let you recruit or sponsor other sales affiliates into the business and will compensate you in some way for purchases and sales they make. … Read the rest of this entry

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the key to success with your Internet affiliate home business is focus. You’ve got to choose an opportunity you are comfortable with, learn and apply the basics, adapt them to your needs and interests, and then FOCUS.

Learning to market and build a business online isn’t something that everybody is cut out for. Most people do not have any interest in it. Many of the ones who do take an interest in it get tired or frustrated and drop away when they find out it takes work and there is no way to instant success.

The formula that I recommend is first, do your homework and find a company with products or services that you feel comfortable using, promoting and selling. The Affiliate Marketing company that I have chosen, a leader in the industry, is the SFI Marketing Group. … Read the rest of this entry

Last night at our weekly Toastmasters meeting I was asked to speak for two minutes on whether or not New Year’s Resolutions had any value. As I presented my views, I realized how important resolutions can be for Internet Success.

My perspective is that New Year’s Resolutions are a kind of goal setting and if they are structured well, they can be powerful in producing the desired results.

I gave the personal example of how, a number of decades ago, I used to smoke cigarettes. I realized that smoking was not good for your health and I recognized that the desire to smoke was nothing more than a controlling habit, and I did not like that. So, one New Year’s Eve, I made the resolution to quit smoking “sometime” in the coming year. … Read the rest of this entry
