This Writer Has Been Busy

Where have I been, lately? It has been a few weeks since I posted here in my home business resources marketing blog. I’ll tell you where I have been: I have been busy with writing projects for offline writing clients.

For the past several years, May has been the busiest month of the year for me with client writing projects. I have a couple of major projects where the majority of the writing work occurs in May. The rest of the year, the projects are spaced out evenly, but in May, it all happens at once!

I’m not complaining (just a little stressed right now, LOL.) I enjoy what I do and my two main clients hold significant positions in our community, so I feel honoured to be the writer chosen to do their projects. … Read the rest of this entry

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

Strolling Down Home Business Memory Lane

Today, I am reminiscing. Let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane, back to the humble beginnings of my home business marketing career. It’s a long journey and I AM approaching my senior years, so settle in kids, this could be a long one!

Well, maybe it won’t be so long, but the story does go back almost four decades, back to the mid-seventies when I was a young man and just beginning to respond to the call of the entrepreneur.

One day, I saw an advertisement in a magazine or tabloid publication offering a book titled, “Plan for Mail Order Profits” written by David G. Baron. The ad did its job and I could not resist sending away for the book. I was not disappointed when it arrived. … Read the rest of this entry

It is fairly standard practice to use a website landing page to introduce a product, service or Affiliate Marketing program: many online businesses use them. Later in this post I’ll tell you about MY newest affiliate page.

Landing pages are sometimes called “lead capture pages.” They are the pages that you “land” on after clicking an advertisement or link somewhere on the Internet that promises more information on the subject you have been reading about.

In some cases, the page is nothing more than a reference page providing additional information as promised. However, in many cases, the purpose of the page is to encourage visitors to submit their contact information so the marketer can follow up with more information at a later time. … Read the rest of this entry
