If you have your website up and running and/or you are getting ready to start promoting your affiliate offers, you can add one more technique to your sales approach that may dramatically increase your sales and build yourself a bigger list.

Network Marketing – Why People Fail!

Many people have tried and failed at making money online when they joined network marketing programs , multi-level marketing programs and other online businesses. There are several things that I have observed during my twenty some years online that have I believe contribute to those failures.

Building Your In House Mailing List

List Building – Should You Build Your Own?   If you read publications or training material, you will almost always be told that building your own list is one of the essential elements you need for your online business to be successful. That is 100% correct. It is not the only thing you need but it is very important. As you surf the Net, I am sure that a very high percentage of websites that you have visited have had a form requesting your name and email address either to receive a free report or to subscribe to a newsletter. This is one of the processes used to build a list. The form that you see is most likely connected to an autoresponder. This autoresponder takes the name and email address and adds it to a data base. It also immediately sends the new subscriber a request to confirm their…

Three Steps To Affiliate Marketing Success!

As I have discussed in other articles in the past, affiliate marketing is a way to build your income without a lot of the head aches of running a normal business. With this type marketing, the merchant is willing to pay a portion of their sales to an affiliate who is promoting the merchants products or services. The concept of affiliate marketing has been one of the fastest growing approaches to doing business online. It is advantageous to the merchant and to the affiliate marketer. It is very cost efficient for both the merchant and the affiliate. The Merchant Gains Sales! The merchant has an opportunity to increase his or her ability to advertise their products or services to a greater universe of possible buyers.

Work From Home Business Ideas? Are They Work From Home Scams!

Work From Home Scams Scambusters.org describes “work from Home scams” as “Having you work from home, doing envelope stuffing, craft assembly, or other tasks where you are (supposedly) paid by a company as an employee. There are certainly some legitimate telecommuting jobs, but work-from-home jobs are often just big scams.” If you have some work from home business ideas, you definitely need to do some research before you dive right in. You do not want to get burned. I have talked many times about online scams and you can review them by clicking the “Online Scams” drop down menu at the top of this page. When I was getting near retirement, I started looking at the Internet as an avenue to creating some additional income and being my own boss while I enjoyed my retirement. As I looked at the different offers I was getting by email and while surfing,…

Search Engine Registration Scam

In the last month or so, I have started receiving emails offering search engine registration for domains that I own. These offers are all worded very similar and have a subject that says: “Domain Notification for exampledomain.com : This is your Final Notice of Domain Listing” I have changed my actual domain name in the example here but these have been sent to me for a number of my domains. At first glance I thought that it was a request to renew my domain registration. But it is not and each time I checked my domain registration information, none of the domains had to be renewed. When you read the information, it actually says “search engine registration” which is a lot different from your annual or multiple year domain registration with your domain registrar. So do not be fooled. You really do not have to pay for registering your domain…

Email Scams And Hoaxes

The advent of the Internet has, like everything else, opened up new avenues for the crooks to try and get your information and/or hard earned money. There are many email scams and hoaxes going around. Every day I download my email and there are at least ten to twenty emails that appear to be email scams and hoaxes. I have worked online for over twenty years and it is probably easier for me to recognize them just by seeing the subject of the email. But it is not just email, you can get solicited through pop ups when you are visiting websites or doing searches. I am going to mention a few of the current email scams here that you should look out for. These will be by no means all of them. They are some of the top ones that I see regularly. I have talked about some other…

All indications are that, yes, there has been a definite increase in the number of seniors working online to supplement income.

Follow Up With Autoresponders – Improve Your Sales!

So you have your own website, an affiliate website or both. You are trying to promote products or services online. You know you are getting traffic to your sites but you are not getting many sales. Let’s talk about the process where you can follow up with autoresponders. When a prospect visits your web site, usually you do not know they were there unless you check your traffic stats at a later date and see the totals. The bottom line is that they have come and gone and you will probably never see them again. It is not a very good way to do business. What if you had the option to capture the visitors name and email address so that you could follow up with them. If you check your traffic stats and you see that last Monday you had a hundred visitors to your site and you had…
