Finally, somebody is thinking about Affiliate Marketers; about what we need from affiliate companies to help us be more successful at selling their products. If they want to maximize their affiliate power, they have to get inside the affiliate mind!

Linc Wonham, associate editor with Website Magazine, has an article in the February edition of the publication titled, Inside the Affiliate Mind. In this article, Wonham highlights the fact that companies typically train, support and reward their paid employees, but often overlook giving the same consideration to their affiliates.

Worse yet, some of these affiliate companies point the finger at affiliate marketers when the company’s sales are down! Wonham notes that while there are some companies that do look after their affiliates, there are those that leave a lot to be desired when it comes to affiliate relations.

“The most successful online business owners learn how to get inside the minds of their often misunderstood (affiliate) partners,” says Wonham. There is value in regularly acknowledging the efforts of affiliates and in supporting them any way possible. “The important point is that the more you can do for your affiliates, the more they will do for you.” … Read the rest of this entry

Earl Nightingale’s Greatest Discovery

GT BulmerGT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

There have been many influential books written over the years on motivation and achievement. One that has had a lasting effect on me and my home business success is Earl Nightingale’s Greatest Discovery (PMA Book Series), written by the “Dean of Personal Development” himself, Earl Nightingale.

This book, highlighting “six words that changed the author’s life”, shows readers exactly how to apply the same six words to ensure their personal and business success.

The book was published in 1987 and I received a copy from my mother who had borrowed it from our local library. She knew I was interested in books on personal achievement and she had been a fan of Earl Nightingale, who had developed quite a following as a popular radio broadcaster, so she was confident that I would find great value and inspiration in the book.

Well, Mom was absolutely correct. I read the book several times before reluctantly returning it to her, and then I set about searching for a source to buy my own copy. Once I found the source, ordered the book and received it, I quickly read it through a few more times. However, this time, since it was mine, I underlined and marked many of the passages that were especially meaningful to me! … Read the rest of this entry

Free Targeted Advertising From Adzly

The first rule of successful marketing is to get your message in front of as many highly targeted prospects as you can. To help maximize this goal, you might consider using a powerfully viral marketing machine. One way to achieve this is with free targeted advertising from

Adzly is a full-scale professional advertising network where you choose the market category and the network automatically finds the perfect prospects for your ads. It’s like the proverbial “better mousetrap” you’ve always heard about: your ad is the cheese and the adzly network is the path that leads the ideal prospects to your door.

You can set up a free adzly account quickly and easily and have your ads running in no time.

Advertising is a tricky skill to master; even more so when marketing on the Internet because there is so much competition. There was a time when you could use the “shotgun” approach to Internet advertising: you would simply blast your ads out there and hope some of them hit the right people.

Today, that approach is wasteful and inefficient if you hope to enhance your affiliate power. You really have to target the prospects who are best suited for your offers or your advertising will be wasted. Read the rest of this entry
