Anyway, in between I just stumble across an interesting website that might be of interest to those who intend to buy or sell stuffs in the Internet. Most of us heard of Amazon or eBay online stores but did you know that there are many websites apart from these two which are worth considering.

Affiliate marketing on the Internet is one of the simplest methods to make money on the Internet. Affiliate marketing online is a win-win situation because products get sold, people make money and the consumer gets the product they want.

The big manufactures get their products sold without having to shell out small fortunes on advertising and marketing. They pass on these savings to affiliate marketers in the form of commissions because their efforts get the products seen and purchased by the consumer.

The end consumer benefits because they are getting the product that they were looking to buy anyway probably cheaper than they were going to pay retail.

Find Out 4 Affiliate Tips For Your Business

Posted on : 20-03-2010 | By : Kim Neo | In : Internet_Marketing

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,


Affiliate marketing isn’t very different from any other business out there, it’s just the same thing with a cyber twist. However, the marketing methods that you will employ are basically the same as with any traditional business. However, affiliate marketers are in direct competition with each other, and that makes the job a bit harder. This is why it’s important for you to stand out from the crowd in every possible way to get that most wanted sale. In the following article, I will let you in on four things that will sharpen your skills and make you more money in the long run.

1) Set the table: in order to secure your piece of the affiliate marketing pie, you need to know the wants and needs or your customer’s lifestyle. You don’t want to waste your time trying to sell ice cream in the Antartic. Instead you want to pick the marketing methods that best suit your targeted niche. For instance, if you have a website with the topic of “mechanical tools,” it will need to have content written that will address the needs of the people that are in that market. You also need to consider the experience level of your target market. Or maybe someone that has a great deal of knowledge in your product? If you have an item that you would like to sell, then your content should be directed towards people that wish to buy that particular item.

2) CPA Programs are Profitable – Cost Per action programs, or pay per lead (PPL) programs, can also be used to help your blog earn money. These types of programs are run on CPA networks which you need to join before you begin promoting. Simply Google “CPA network” to find a bunch of these. Again, you’re not selling anything here, because you make money on a certain action your visitor takes. Whenever the required action is carried out by a visitor (which can also be signing up through a form or simply submitting their email address) you earn money. The CPA market is thriving today, and there are lots of courses available which can teach you how to become a part of these types of networks and make money by promoting their offers. It does however take some time and effort before you get good at it, but in the end, there’s a lot of money you can make from it.

3) Let Subscribers Assist You In Building Your List – It is true that it takes skill and time to be able to build a list. However, once you find the right niche markets, you will not be able to find anything more effective. Now if you really desire to move to the next level and create the kind of lists that really make big money you need to carefully cultivate your first several hundred subscriptions. you can’t even dream of co-oping with other marketers until you have a solid list of subscribers. Before anyone will take you on in a joint venture you have to have enough subscriptions in your list that you’ll be able to meet or exceed the numbers they’ll bring to the party. All list owners prefer working with someone who is on their level. Begin with promotions like item giveaways and distributing articles. Once you have a solid base of a thousand subscribers or so then you can try other marketers in and see who might take you up on a co-op venture.

4) Accomplish Success By Pre-selling – You must remember one fact: The merchant is the one that sells the product, not you! You need to pre-sell, or create reasons why your visitors should make a purchase, not sell. Educate your customers. Write detailed reviews about the products on your affiliate “menu”. You can give them your honest opinion, of the pros and the cons; things they won’t find on the promotional material. To secure the largest portion possible of the affiliate marketing pie, the most successful thing you can do is share your own honest, positive experiences with the product.

Top Reasons Why Most Online Business Fail

Posted on : 10-03-2010 | By : stargaterich | In : Internet_Marketing

Tags: , ,


One of the reasons why many people failed and quit online business is due to lack of awareness of the scope of work involve. Contrary to what some of you may have heard from Internet Marketing Gurus selling the idea about not having to lift a finger to earn income, online marketing actually involves a great deal work.

Of course that does not imply there aren’t any Internet millionaires around who are able to reap huge profit from their online business without having to spend tons of hours in the business. However, what many people overlook is that most of the successful Internet entrepreneurs started with tremendous efforts and commitments to bring up their online business.

A high number of people failed and give up on Internet business because they have wrong mindset. Some people treat it as hobby rather than real business. You are your own boss so to speak so you need to have discipline, determination, focus and passion to carry it through if you were to succeed in your online business.

It is easy to become complacent and procrastinate when it comes to dealing with online business. This behavior is further compounded by the fact that it is very affordable to start your own Internet business thus there is less pain involve should the business fail to take off.

It is not surprising that some people deliver excellent results when they work under duress stress but their productivity drops when they are not given any time line to complete their work. There’s a saying that human by nature is lazy and I guess it might be true in certain sense.

Just think of it for a minute. If you work for an organization whereby you do not need to be accountable for your deliverable and you have no one to report to, would you be due diligent enough in wanting to complete tasks assign to you? I guess more than often most probably not.

When you run you your own Internet business, you are practically at your own liberty to decide which, how and when a particular task should be completed. You are your own boss. Have you ever give a thought what sort of boss you wish to become or what boss you are?

After all there is no one breathing down your neck to ensure you do your work diligently and that tasks you assigned to yourself are completed in time and of good quality. It is important for you as your own boss to set up committed timeline to accomplish tasks and make sure it is achieve. For instance, set up goals such as complete article writing and submitting articles within 30 minutes time and so forth.

In summary, it is important for you to have the right mindset if you are to succeed in online business. Business conducted through Internet is no different from normal brick and mortar business.

You need to invest time, focus and efforts to make your online business become profitable. Being your own boss means taking actions and be responsible for all the various aspect of your online business.

The Risk Of Over Hyping And Over Selling Your Product.

Posted on : 13-02-2010 | By : stargaterich | In : Internet_Marketing

Tags: ,


One of the secret of success to any online business is through practicing what is term ‘under commit over deliver’ philosophy. The phrase simply means you don’t any how brag or claim beyond what a product or service is able to deliver efficiently and reliably. Most people are incline to promote a product or service features and benefits up to and possibly beyond what can be achieve in the hope that this will further convince the customer to buy.

Contrary to what many Internet Marketer says, you should be honest and state explicit only benefits which are tangible,measurable and fully demonstrated to be correct and reliable. For instance, if a product is designed to operate up to maximum temperature of 60 degree Celsius, then you should not capitalize and focus the product operating capability solely at maximum 60 degree Celsius in your sales and marketing pitch. Perhaps you may wonder why shouldn’t you?

Based on my experience working for decades in product design and reliability area, the operation of a product at maximum environmental design specification is never a guaranteed one. Rather, usually a product has what is defined as the optimum and maximum operating conditions.

A product normally is usually only guaranteed to operate efficiently and reliably within the nominal operating condition. The product life span is affected and possibly shorten under severe stress condition if subjected to continuous maximum operating stress threshold.

You will lose your credibility if customer misunderstood or have wrong expectations of the product or service which you are promoting. Be clear and specific about what you claim in your sales and marketing pitch. State clearly what the product or service can do and under what condition. It is better to be honest upfront with customer with regards to the limitations of the product or service.

You may be surprised to know that most customers will appreciate your honesty. After all it makes more sense to under commit but over deliver instead of over commit under deliver. Your aim is to sell to your existing customers over and over again.

Thus even if an existing customer decide not to purchase your product or service, you can still approach and promote other products and services in the future. You don’t loose an existing customer as a result of it so long as you are being honest and do your best to promote it to the best of your knowledge without all those over hypes.

Credibility is one of the most important factors which determine the success of your online business. Customer buy from those whom they trust and it takes time to build up customer relationship but very easy to destroy what you have build up across the years.

In summary, there are risks in over hyping and over selling your product. You may stand to lose long standing customers for what is perceived as intentional misleading and dishonesty. Do what is necessary to compete with competitors but do so with honesty, integrity and uniqueness.

Information Overload – Don’t Just Read, Take Action!!

Posted on : 30-01-2010 | By : stargaterich | In : Internet_Marketing

Tags: , ,


One of the biggest issues confronting Internet Marketing newbie is that of information overload. It is quite common to get bombarded with tons of Internet Marketing ideas and techniques so to speak particularly when you sign up for freebies such as free products or services. It is not surprising for an Internet marketing newbie to get overwhelmed and confuse by tons of online business ideas, techniques, tactics and strategies which sometimes seems contradicting or confusing totally.

Most people have in one or another experience what is term paralysis through analysis. A lot of people struggle for hours, days, weeks or even months to try to digest tons of information (be it free or paid products or services) in the hope they will be able to achieve success in the online business and Internet Marketing world through the mastering of that one killer strategy and tactic.

Some people feel they lack the necessary information, expertise and experience to jump start their online business. As a result many do not realize they spend more time than necessary trying to understand and studying all those techniques, many of which may or may not be suitable for the kind of business model they are dealing with.

On thing that I have learn, painfully though is that you need not spend all your time going through every single email marketing promotions, products or services which comes along your way. After all, you are not studying to get your PhD so to speak. Your success in the online business do not depend entirely on how much time you invest in trying to understand as many Internet marketing techniques and ideas. Your online business success depends primarily on the actions you take to implement what you have learn.

On a personal note, I would recommend that you pick one particular Internet Marketing technique which you have not used and focus on it. Try to balance the amount of time you invest in getting to understand the technique and the time where you actually take action to implement it in your website or blog.

As a matter of fact, you can start to implement some of those IM techniques once you grasp hold of the fundamentals pertaining to that one particular technique which you are focusing on. As for me, I usually spend 50 percent of the time reading up whatever I can on an Internet Marketing technique and the rest of the time to implement what I have learn.

Thus for instance, say if you spend 2 hours a day to understand article marketing, you should likewise spend another 2 hours or so on that same day to actually implement what you have learned by generating articles pertaining to your product or service and submitting to the various ezine and article directories.

Don’t just read what you need to know whole day long. Take action and implement what you have learn. As the saying goes, ‘I see I forget, I read I remember, I do I understand’. In summary, your success depends not just on your depth of understanding of the marketing techniques you used, but more importantly on the kind of actions you actually take to make it happen.
