I recently held a private meeting with a few individuals about how to get started making money online and what they can expect. It is not hard at all to make money online. The trick is how long is it going to take you, how much it will cost you and the time involved.
A new person into affiliate marketing that I helped to train was able to start generating around 100 dollars a month in come starting his first month out the door. He invested around 7 hours in training with me and an aditional 40 hours that first …

It still amazes me when I meet a new client and they ask me if the whole advertising online and ranking high in search engines is worth the cost and effort.
I have many different success stories I can go into but here are two very simple ones.
The first is for a young mand in Omaha who has started his own lawn care company. He had a zero advertising budget so he could not take advantage of adwords but he did have a little cash and wanted not just a website built but SEO work so he would rank …

One of the biggest mistakes many people make starting out is not tracking sales. As an affiliate marketer even I made this mistake. I would notice that one day I sold 10 products. Yes I knew what I sold due to my affiliate network but had no idea what website sold it or what click produced the sale.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE MORE MONEY IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IS WORKING!!!!!!!
It just kind of hit me one day. I was reading an article about how to increase conversion rates and the one thing they kept hitting on was to …

Finding Profitable Niches
There are millions of different niches out there. It can be hard for many to find the right niche for them. As an affiliate marketer finding a profitable niche is a must. While many people offer guides to finding a niche I personally use a different method.
The first is to decide how your site will be monetized. Yes deciding this before you even pick a niche. Normally we just use affiliate products. On about half of my sites I do not even use Adsense. The many reason I do implement this is only after I am …

When it comes to choosing a domain name there are 100’s of different things to think about. Getting the right domain for you depends on your situation. For instance if it is a business you will most likely want a domain name with your business in it.
For those that are looking to develop some kind of service that does snot have a set name then often times you should find a domain that is brand able and easy to remember.
If you are an affiliate marketer like me then I have far more advice to offer. First I stay …

While many niche bloggers can go out and find their own affiliate programs from smaller companies often times many brand names are affiliated with an Affiliate Network. Here is a listing of some of the prominent affiliate networks out there.
When searching for a good product or service to promote, be sure to check all the networks. You may find that same company on a different network offering a slightly hire commission rate. This is often times because different networks have different fee structures. Also many affiliate network programs out there offer a bonus like OneNetworkDirect from Digital River.

We have discussed many great tips on setting up Blogs for businesses. It’s a great way to relay current information to customers and in some cases it is an absolute must.
Today we are going to examine one such site. The burl is http://www.destinationstationseries.com/. The company is Iron Fire publishing and they just finished their first children’s book called “The Greedy Race Car Driver”. I my self ended up making an order because it is a rather unique product. More on that later.
The reason we wanted to examine the site is because it’s 100% flash based. That means that …

In the Race to Rank series I reported last month that my Alexa rank was at 166,686.
My goal is to reach below 80,000 by February 2009. At the rate I have watched my Alexa rank decrease (remember, lower is better), I figured that this type of goal was not only obtainable but I could easily do better.
Using the Sparky add-on for Firefox, when I visit my sites on a daily basis I watch to see how rank is improving or declining. This is vital information for me to know on all of my sites. Losing traffic and rank …

If you’ve ever had to write for a deadline, chances are, you’ve experienced writers block. And, since blogging is essentially the same as writing a column in a newspaper or magazine, we’re just as susceptible to what I call “blogger’s block.” You know you need to write a post and yet, your mind is painfully blank. The blank screen seems to be taunting you, mocking your inability to fill it with words. As if that weren’t enough, it seems like every other blog in your niche has been a posting spree lately and you’re falling

There are three types of goals a blogger can and should set for their blog. This may not be as easy as it sounds but, for long term success, it’s important that bloggers keep focus. With so many things to keep track of to gain authority, you don’t want to lose sight of what your goals are.
Goals won’t be right for every blogger or every blog. Someone, for example, with a personal online diary probably won’t have many long terms goals but to continue to share their own life online. Can it be more? Of course, but that doesn’t …
