Residual Affiliate Programs

Residual Affiliate Programs
Copyright © Craig Warren

Are you a webmaster in need of additional income? Or
are you planning to set up an online business but you
still don’t have any product to sell? If so, affiliate
marketing may be the best solution for your problems.
With affiliate marketing, you won’t need to worry about
the products you have to sell. All you need to have is
a website with sufficient contents that are related to
the products of a certain online company offering
affiliate programs. By becoming a member of the
program, or by becoming an affiliate, you can start
earning a certain amount of money right away!

Affiliate marketing is some sort of business relationship
established between a merchant and his affiliates. In
affiliate marketing, an affiliate agrees to direct some
traffic to a merchant’s website. If that traffic is
converted into some kind of action, like a visitor
purchasing a product on the merchant’s website or a
visitor becoming a lead for the company, the affiliate
who directed the traffic will be compensated.
Compensation may take the form of either a percentage
sales commission for the sales generated or a fixed fee
predetermined upon the application of the affiliate on
the merchant’s affiliate program.

Promising a lot of benefits both for the merchants and
the affiliates, affiliate marketing has become one of
the most popular online marketing methods today.
In fact, almost every merchant or retailer site today
offers an affiliate program that any one can join into.
Most retailers would entice people to become affiliates
or members of their program by promising great benefits
like large commissions, lifetime commissions, click
through incomes and a lot of other benefits. But would
all these affiliate programs bring off the same

Most affiliate programs would pay you, as an affiliate,
a one-time commission for every sale or lead you brought
to the merchant’s website. Commissions for this kind of
affiliate programs are usually large, ranging from 15%
to a high of about 60%. Other affiliate programs would
pay you a fixed fee for every click through or traffic
you send to the merchant’s site. Programs like this
often pay a smaller fee for every click through,
usually not getting any larger than half a dollar.
The good thing about this kind of program, however,
is that the visitor won’t have to purchase anything
in order for the affiliate to get compensated.

Another type of affiliate program is the residual
income affiliate program. Residual affiliate programs
usually pay only a small percentage of sales commission
for every sale directed by the affiliate to the
merchant’s site. This commission often comes only in
the range of 10% to 20% sales commission. Because of
this, many people ignore residual affiliate program and
would rather opt for the high paying one-time commission
affiliate program. Are these people making a mistake, or
are they making the right decision?

We can’t tell, for sure, if people are making a mistake
by choosing a high paying one-time commission affiliate
program. But we can definitely say that they are making
a large mistake if they ignore residual affiliate
programs. Residual affiliate programs would indeed pay
at a lower rate, but merchants offering such kind of
programs would generally pay you regular and ongoing
commissions for a single affiliate initiated sale!
That means, for the same effort you made in promoting
a particular affiliate program, you get paid only once
in a one-time commission program, and a regular and
ongoing commission for a residual program!

So, are the benefits of promoting residual affiliate
programs clearer to you now? Or are they still vague?
If they are still vague, then let’s make them a bit
clearer with this example.

Suppose there are two online merchants both offering
web hosting services on their sites. The first merchant
offers a one-time commission type of affiliate program
that pays $80 for every single affiliate initiated sale.
The second merchant also offers an affiliate program,
but this time a residual affiliate program that pays
only $10 for every single affiliate initiated sale. As
an affiliate, we may get attracted at once at what the
first merchant is offering, as $80 is definitely a lot
larger than $10. But by thinking things over before
actually getting into them, one may be able to see
that the second merchant is offering us more
opportunity to earn a larger amount of money.

Supposed you have directed traffic to the merchant
and it converted into a sale, you’ll get paid once
by the first merchant for the sale you have initiated.
But with the second merchant, you’ll get paid monthly
for as long as the customer you have referred to the
merchant continues to avail of the web hosting service.
That means that for the same effort of getting one
customer to avail of the merchant’s service, you get
paid monthly in residual affiliate programs while you
only get paid once in a one-time commission type of
affiliate programs.

So, are residual affiliate programs worth promoting?
Definitely yes, because you virtually get more money
from these types of affiliate programs in the long
run! And would residual affiliate programs work best
for you? Probably not, probably yes. It is not really
for me to tell. But with the benefits that residual
affiliate marketing can provide, it would really be
unwise to ignore such programs.

Tips on Starting A Small Business

Tips on Starting A Small Business
Copyright © Craig Warren

Small businesses have many challenges to stay
afloat. Many budding entrepreneurs think that
all they need is an idea or product, a name
for their small business, and a bit of work
and the product will sell itself and money
will come rolling in. If you have ever run
a small business even a home based business,
you will know there’s much more to it than

The first thing you, as a potential small business
owner must always do, is research your market.
Then research your competition, then the available
supply for your product or service, and find your
unique selling position. This alone can take weeks
often months.

Once you are satisfied that there is a market for
your product or service then you need to sort out
your business plan and cash flow projections.

Small businesses may appear low cost but
many suck up substantial capital before
they turn a profit so now, unless you are
very fortunate, you must sort out how to
finance your small business. Can you
remortgage your house? Look for investment
partners. Borrow from friends and/or
family or approach the bank. Whichever
you choose you need to convince others
that your small business will be profitable
and they will get a return on their money.

Once your finances are in place the hard
work starts. You may have premises to
arrange, suppliers to sort out, staff to
recruit and mangage, accounts to keep,
products to design or source, lawyers to
consult, accountants to hire and we must
not forget in all of this market and get
the all important customers to look at and
purchase your products.

To do that you have to advertise your small
business, but where and at what cost? Don’t
forget you have to provide customer support
and accept returns. Then there’s waste
disposal and on and on.

Who’s paying for all of this? In simple
terms you, and your friends, investors
and or your bank are paying, until you
are selling sufficient product or service
to cover the costs, usually many months
or even years away.

New small businesses rarely return a profit
in the first year and frequently not for two
or three years. Make sure you can finance it

Is it worth doing it? That’s your decision but
every year tens of thousands of people do
start their own business and many are
successful and reap the rewards of all that
hard work. But many also fail, and all too
often it’s due to lack of preparation.

If you’re about to set off on your new business
venture prepare well and Good Luck. With good
planning, persistence and a lot of hard work
you too can build a profitable small business.

The Art of Self Improvement

The Art of Self Improvement
Copyright © Craig Warren

There’s no doubt about it: Self Improvement is big
business. No matter where we look we seem to see
men attired in business suits and fancy haircuts.
Sporting dinky little ear-piece microphones, they
speak to us as though we were attending the annual
general meeting of their multi-national self-
development business which, I suppose, isn’t that
far from the truth. They speak to us in sound-bites;
I’m going show you how, you just need to follow my
plan: no thought required; just follow the plan.
Success and winning, they preach to the audience,
are a sure thing.

But is self-development a sure thing? If, like me,
you believe self-development is a life journey that
is never completed, you know that the only sure
thing is that the search for self-development is
far from being a sure thing. The journey will
entail more failures than successes, more loss than
gain and more self-doubt than we think we can endure.
The only way to improve ones self is to challenge
the habits and assumptions we have gathered along
the way. To go out on a limb with no guarantee of
finding what we want takes courage. No success plan
would contemplate such a course of action!

So, if we can’t get succor from the self-improvement
gurus, who can we turn to?

The answer, I believe, is to look to the people who
have always explored every single aspect of the
human condition. They did not always find the answer,
but they all had courage. They are of course, the
worlds artists.

How can a painting help us toward our goal of
self-improvement you might ask? Well, some
paintings help to bring serenity and a feeling
of inner peace. I feel this whenever I look at
an Impressionist painting, especially paintings
by Berthe Morisot. She was never recognized as
a great artist during her lifetime; she was
relegated to the category of “feminine” artists
because of her usual subject matter women,
children and domestic scenes. Her paintings are
intensely intimate. She is an example of someone
who never gave up on pursuing what she thought
was worth while despite being largely ignored.

Jackson Pollock instills different but equally
powerful feelings. I used to believe all modern
artists just throw a bit of paint on a canvas and
call it art. My preconceptions were swept away when
I was lucky enough to attend an exhibition devoted
to his work. His paintings were beautiful and
challenged the way I look at a painting. The search
for your inner self is all about challenging your
currently held notions.

Music is probably the easiest of the arts for us to
accept as an aid toward our search for self-development.
How often does a certain piece of music make us feel
happy, relaxed, romantic, hopeful, fulfilled? You name
it, music hits all the buttons. My favorite music is
anything by Beethoven. His music makes me feel all of
the aforementioned. He was a man who accepted nothing
less than perfection. He sort redemption through his
music. Ultimately, he didn’t find it and he spent much
of his life feeling alone. But his courage of conviction
made his life, and countless others, a better thing. His
last words were “Applaud, my friends, the comedy is over.

Perhaps our greatest inspiration comes from writers. They
have helped me, and millions of others, to find the inner
self. Life would be a much poorer experience without our
great writers. I wont name all the writers that have
inspired me; there are too many. But if there was one thing
I would urge you to do, it is to read. If you’re not sure who
to read then go to a library and ask! Tell the librarian what
it is that you want to experience, feel or learn when you read
a book. They’ll help you, don’t let shyness defeat you. If you
can’t get to a library then join a reading club on the internet.
The one thing I have found is that people, who love to read,
love to help others to read books.

So, forget about buying into those testosterone,
succeed-at-all-costs seminars, ebooks and DVDs. Go and
look at a painting or lie on the sofa and listen to music,
maybe dance wildly to it, cry with it, make love in time
to it or curl up and read a book that will take you where you
never thought possible.

You may not get to where you wished, but Art will accompany
you every single step of the way.

What is Textual Advertising

What is Textual Advertising
Copyright © Craig Warren

Textual advertising is a paid assortment of
announcements which appear on the first pages
of results in search engines (Google, Yahoo,
Overture, etc.). They have recently become
an important consideration when marketing a
company’s website in NY. The times the
advertisement appears depends on the keywords
and web design chosen by the website marketer,
in addition to appearing as text rather than a
graphic or banner. Therefore, such advertising
is referred to as “textual”.

It is a rather new kind of advertising on the
Internet. However, the market for textual
advertising is constantly expanding, and the
sales volume generated through search engines
increasing. There are many advantages which
have made textual advertising attractive in
advertisers opinion.

First, as opposed to other kinds of Internet
advertising, for example banner displays, your
announcements are shown only to those customers
who search for products or services similar to
yours. For example, my firm could select keywords
such as web site design and marketing in New York,
NY, so that the advertisements appear only when
potential clients enter a combination of those
keywords in the search engines.

Another advantage is connected to the principle
of cost – in most cases you pay not for the
amount of times the ad is displayed, as in banner
advertising, but only when users “click” on your
textual advertisements.

The third advantage is that even the basic
advertising platforms offer well-developed
systems for results reporting, the tools to
choose a target audience and to predetermine
campaign expenditures. This allows advertisers
to control the budget and target customers for
each keyword (such as web design), or geographic
area (such as New York, NY) of your advertising

Overall, many internet marketing experts agree
that textual advertising is the wave of the
future, and will soon either almost or entirely
replace banner, graphical, and other forms of
untargeted, obtrusive and annoying online

Tip Of The Day:
With an extensive network of banner partners,
you can “set and forget” your banner ad up and
gain sign ups to your business with a level of
ease not accomplished in other forms of

Increase Your Response Rate

Increase Your Response Rate

You’ve been around the block a time or two. When it
comes to choosing promotional gifts for your clients,
you know your stuff. Why, you always get the nicest
phone calls, notes and emails from your clients
thanking you for their gifts.

The question is, do those people call and write
again with new orders for your company’s product
or service? Which, when all is said and done, is
what giving clients promotional gifts is all
about. Right?

Of course! And most of the time after those polite thank
you calls and notes, you hear nothing, at least not right
away and certainly not in the way of increased orders
and sales.

That’s why you need to know this secret to giving the
perfect promotional gifts to your clients and guarantee
results your accountant will notice.

The secret is personalization. No, no, not as in giving
gifts with names and such engraved on them, though
those can be quite nice.

No, this is individualized personalization. That’s a
mouthful, isn’t it? What it means is that when you’re
giving your clients promotional gifts, you need to think
of each and every one of them as individuals and give
them gifts that speak to their tastes and interests.

This isn’t as difficult as you might think. In the course
of doing business with people, we learn a great deal
about them. Things like if they’re dog lovers, wine
enthusiasts, proud parents, gadget freaks, that sort
of thing.

So when it comes time to do promotional gift-giving, take
those things you’ve learned about your clients and use
them in choosing stellar gifts that will keep your
customers calling you. Give that wine enthusiast a good
bottle of wine. Wrap up a picture frame with a border of
dogs on it for your dog lover client. Give you gadget
freak client a handheld game or cell phone accessory.

No money for that? Think you should give everyone the
same thing? Great! You can still personalize.

Think packaging here. Instead of cookie cutter wrapping
paper, wrap the dog lover’s promotional gift in paper
with dog bones on it. Put a card with miniature wine
accessories hot-glued to it on your wine enthusiast’s
gift. The possibilities are endless.

And in doing small things like this, you show your
customers they’re more than just dollar signs to you.
They show you see and appreciate them as people. As
we all know, we like doing business with people who
get us. Our clients and customers are no different!
We like doing business with people who like us. Master
the fine art of individualized personalization, and
your bottom line will give you a very personal and
sincere thank you.

Your Self Esteem

Your Self Esteem
Copyright © Craig Warren

When you’re learning about something new, it’s easy to
feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of relevant
information available. This informative article should
help you focus on the central points.

So how do you stay calm, composed and maintain
self-esteem in a tough environment? Here are some tips
you may to consider as a starter guide to

Imagine yourself as a Dart Board. Everything and
everyone else around you may become Dart Pins, at one
point or another. These dart pins will destroy your
self-esteem and pull you down in ways you wont even
remember. Don’t let them destroy you, or get the best
of you. So which dart pins should you avoid?

Dart Pin #1 : Negative Work Environment
Beware of dog eat dog theory where everyone else is
fighting just to get ahead. This is where
non-appreciative people usually thrive. No one will
appreciate your contributions even if you miss lunch
and dinner, and stay up late. Most of the time you
get to work too much without getting help from people
concerned. Stay out of this, it will ruin your
self-esteem. Competition is at stake anywhere. Be
healthy enough to compete, but in a healthy
competition that is.

Dart Pin #2: Other Peoples Behavior
Bulldozers, brown nosers, gossip-mongers, whiners,
backstabbers, snipers, people walking wounded,
controllers, naggers, complainers, exploders,
patronizers, bluffers all these kinds of people will
pose bad vibes for your self-esteem, as well as to
your self-improvement scheme.

Dart Pin #3: Changing Environment
You can’t be a green bug on a brown field. Changes
challenge our paradigms. It tests our flexibility,
adaptability and alters the way we think. Changes
will make life difficult for a while, it may cause
stress but it will help us find ways to improve our
selves. Change will be there forever, we must be
susceptible to it.

Truthfully, the only difference between you and Self
esteem experts is time. If you’ll invest a little more
time in reading, you’ll be that much nearer to expert
status when it comes to Self esteem.

Dart Pin #4: Past Experience
It’s okay to cry and say ouch! when we experience
pain. But don’t let pain transform itself into fear.
It might grab you by the tail and swing you around.
Treat each failure and mistake as a lesson.

Dart Pin #5: Negative World View
Look at what you’re looking at. Don’t wrap yourself
up with all the negativities of the world. In building
self-esteem, we must learn how to make the best out of
worst situations.

Dart Pin #6: Determination Theory
The way you are and your behavioral traits is said to
be a mixed end product of your inherited traits (genetics),
your upbringing (psychic), and your environmental
surroundings such as your spouse, the company, the economy
or your circle of friends. You have your own identity. If
your father is a failure, it doesn’t mean you have to be a
failure too. Learn from other people’s experience, so you’ll
never have to encounter the same mistakes.

Sometimes, you may want to wonder if some people are born
leaders or positive thinkers. NO. Being positive, and staying
positive is a choice. Building self-esteem and drawing lines
for self-improvement is a choice, not a rule or a talent.
God wouldn’t come down from heaven and tell you George, you
may now have the permission to build self-esteem and improve
your self.

In life, its hard to stay tough specially when things and
people around you keep pulling you down. When we get to the
battle field, we should choose the right luggage to bring
and armors to use, and pick those that are bullet proof.
Life’s options give us arrays of more options. Along the
battle, we will get hit and bruised. And wearing a bullet
proof armor ideally means self change. The kind of change
which comes from within. Voluntarily. Armor or Self Change
changes 3 things: our attitude, our behavior and our way
of thinking.

Building self-esteem will eventually lead to self-improvement
if we start to become responsible for who we are, what we have
and what we do. It’s like a flame that should gradually spread
like a brush fire from inside and out. When we develop
self-esteem, we take control of our mission, values and
discipline. Self esteem brings about self-improvement, true
assessment, and determination. So how do you start putting up
the building blocks of self-esteem? Be positive. Be contented
and happy. Be appreciative. Never miss an opportunity to
compliment. A positive way of living will help you build
self-esteem, your starter guide to self-improvement.

There’s a lot to understand about Self esteem. We were able
to provide you with some of the facts above, but there is
still plenty more to write about in subsequent articles.

Starting Your Home Based Business on a Shoestring Budget

Starting Your Home Based Business on a Shoestring Budget
Copyright © Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy

Whether seeking a supplemental income or a full-time income,
many folks have undertaken the task to discover a viable home
based business solution to meet their personal needs.

For most folks who contemplate a home business, a low-cost or
no-cost solution is not only nice, but also very necessary. Many
also seek to find a home business that will permit them to
maintain their regular day job in order to protect their base

Taking the cautious approach to a home based business and
keeping one’s job during the start-up period is often a very
good decision. By maintaining one’s job, one can maintain the
health of their personal finances while permitting their home
business grow healthy and strong.

Fortunately, most home based businesses can be started with
little or no cash, can be maintained on a shoestring budget, and
can be operated successfully with only a part-time investment.

One day, the business will be strong enough to support itself
and its owner. When that time comes, it will make good sense for
the business owner to leave his or her outside job to dedicate
more time to growing and maintaining their new thriving home
based business. You will know when that time has finally arrived.

The nature of a home based business makes it easy and very
realistic for most folks to take the plunge into home business

Yet, many folks put off starting their own home based business,
because they have the misconception that they will have to risk
thousands of their own hard-earned dollars at start-up. Then
later, if their business fails, they fear they may be forced to
take out a second mortgage on their house just to stay out of

Are you one of these folks? Do you let your fears of failure
keep you from reaching for your dreams?

If so, then allow me to introduce you to a few home business
ideas that you can start for less than $100 and can be started
and operated very profitably as a part-time business.


First of all, let me advise you to search out a business model
that will deliver steady and repeat business. It is the one
thing — above all others — that will assure that your
company can survive the test of time.

Home-based mail order is a good example of how one can quickly
grow a home business income. Mail order is a low cost start-up
business that can be launched for around $100 USD.

With proper planning, your home-based mail order business will
not require up-front inventory purchases. In the mail order
business, it is not uncommon to rely upon drop-shippers for
product fulfillment services.

By utilizing drop-shippers, we can sell the products, collect
the money and then purchase the products from the wholesale
outlet. The wholesale outlet will then put a return address for
your company on the product packaging and deliver the product
directly to your customer.

Your primary expense in the mail-order business is advertising.
Classified advertising tends to be a relatively inexpensive form
of advertising with thousands of outlets available to the small
business owner.

Buy low — sell high. You can acquire high quality,
top-of-the-line merchandise for a fraction of the retail cost.
Starting a wholesale business would require a Wholesale Dealers
Directory as your source for merchandise, such as the one above.

Auctions can be an excellent source for buying cheap and selling
high. Both government auctions and Internet auctions can lead to
some excellent profit opportunities. Auctions are an excellent
tool for both acquiring and selling merchandise.

Crafts are a hot seller at country fairs, swap meets or anyplace
where people gather. Make your own crafts and sell them for a
tidy profit!

Selling information by mail is another good example of an
inexpensive home based business start-up. One can gain the
resale rights to information for usually about $50 USD. Other
costs will include printer cartridges, paper and postage. There
are plenty of free classifieds sites on the Internet, in which
to successfully advertise your information.

Write and publish your own informational booklets; sell them at
a high price! All you need is a little know-how, a printer,
paper and stamps. This is a GREAT home business idea! You can
also sell the resale rights to others, for extra profits. In
this age of the Internet, you may also take advantage of the
fact that selling information is one of the most profitable
endeavors one can pursue online.

Offer office services for hire in your local paper. You’ll be
surprised at the amount of regular office business that can be
gleaned from one little classified ad. Word processing, typing,
accounting, data entry, proofreading, transcription, promotional
letters and newsletters. All these tasks can be accomplished
right from your own home office.

Yes, Avon’s been around for eternity, hasn’t it? Then it’s not
such a bad prospect as a home based business, is it? I once knew
a woman who did so much business as an Avon rep. that she had
people calling her and knocking at her door wanting to order
products at all hours of the day and night! Once you are an
established Avon representative, you, too, will turn a good

On your search for the ideal home based business, try not to get
caught up in any scams that will run off with your money. There
are thousands of scam artists out there just waiting for the
next sucker to come along. Remember, if it sounds too good to be
true, then it probably is. Just use your good judgement and
invest wisely in proven methods of earning extra income.

Search Engine Optimization, SEO, is when a web site owner
creates the content on his or her web pages to be more
search engine friendly. By doing this the web site receive
higher search engine rankings when people search for terms
related to the site’s content. So whats so important about
search engine optimization. Well, if you’ve worked hard to
create a Web site you’ll want lots of people to visit it.

If you optimize your web pages for the search engines, a
robot will search and index your site more effectively
giving it a higher ranking in various search engines. The
better you are at search optimization the higher placement
you’ll get. The goal is to get on the first page of results
and ultimately the number one spot! The higher the ranking
the more traffic you’ll get to your site through this method.
More traffic means more revenue for you.

When creating your Web site, you’ll want to use the right
search engine optimization techniques. This will have a major
impact on the success of your Web site. You can hire a company
with SEO expertise to do it for you or you can study SEO and
apply several techniques yourself. You can find out what works

While you’ll receive more general traffic by using SEO, you’ll

covers a specific topic, you’ll want to reach the appropriate
audience for that topic. As an example, if you’re selling model
cars, you’ll want to attract visitors interested in that hobby,
not just those that are interested in cars in general. Having
search engine optimization that attracts those interested in
model cars will increase your sales. Attracting your key
audience to visit your site can actually be more important
that drawing large amounts of general traffic. Those targeted
visitors are more likely to be repeat visitors and to pass
along your website address to others with the same interest.

There are two kinds of SEO methods. These are white hat and
black hat. The first, white hat, is the appropriate methods
that fall in line with the search engines guidelines. This
the honest approach to SEO. The content on the page is unique
and visitor oriented, not just created for the search engines.
On the other hand, black hat SEO are unethical methods
including cloaking, which is having a web page optimized that
leads visitors to another page with different content. This is
somewhat a bait and switch technique. Using black hat methods
are risky because if a search engine finds you’ve been using
these methods, your websites rank could be lowered or the site
could be taken out of the database completely. It may not be
worth the risk to you to use black hat methods for your

Search Engine Optimization is an important part of creating
your Web site. This is a free way to generate a high number
of visitors for your site. And you have the option to pay
someone to help you optimize your site if you choose. To
get a high number of targeted visitors to your site, SEO
is the must.

The Internet Is Unbelievable

The Internet Is Unbelievable

The internet is unbelievable as a business
environment. The whole Google Adsense and
AdWords thing, with Pay-per-click and what
not well all of this is making people very
rich. Okay, not everyone. But you can generate
a substantial second income from this. Put in
more time and you can definitely quit your day
job (if you have one-no assumptions here). To
be honest, it isn’t that complicated. It takes
a little work to get started but, once you can
grasp the concepts, you are set. To this end I
have gone through a large number of internet
sites that have information on this. There are
a few resources that I believe are worthy of
your time. I’ll say why below.

The marketing on most schemes out there is truly
atrocious. Some people will be put off by it; the
other group will fall for it. I am going to try
to go beyond that. It can be hard to see beyond
what is staring you blindly in the face (usually
in great big red letters). Claims of millions and,
nowadays, Paypal account statements with large
transfers shown. Basically, these people are
trying to sell their products. They have read
their own manuals. They know about marketing,
about raising hopes in people and about presenting
evidence of the merits of their products. They
exaggerate in some instances; leave out bits that
have to do with your own actions. Everybody seems
to do this online; however, some of these resources
do have real merit, which is why I mention them here.

In my experience, it’s the little things that make
a difference. You might have everything done
properly but if your introduction is missing the
right punch, then you don’t get any sales. The
details are important. They can be and are usually
the difference between getting a lot of money and
not getting a lot of money. I feel like it’s those
that cover these fine points that are the ones you

I am better than you, I am a jerk etc, etc one
proclaims on his website. You can see the angle
he’s going for here. It works though. He’s even
had an infomercial done. This means people are
buying his product. This must mean that his tips
work at least for some people. That’s really all
that matters. This one is guide to basically every
effective way of making money online, like a lot of
others. What makes it really good is that he cuts
out a lot of fluff and lays it down like it is. For
me, the real clincher is the forum on the website.

There are loads of people who are trying this stuff
out. They like to talk about their experiences.
This means you can see where mistakes have been
made and where progress has been made. That’s value.
People can repeatedly come back for help and advice.
Not to many schemes have something like that in

The people factor is really important. This sort of
thing has been around long enough for others to have
tried it. Find out what its been like for them. Get
a second opinion. Forums are a good place. I know my
eyes still ache from all the forums I have gone
through. It might not clear up all your doubts, but
it will certainly eliminate some bad choices.

That brings us to the main point. It really is down
to you to follow through. Whichever one you go for,
it could take some time for you to start to see real
results. You have to have the drive and fortitude to
see it to the end. The investment is not too great,
particularly in the context of the potential rewards.
How brave are you?

There’s a lot of stuff on making money on the internet.
You have to be careful. Most people are just looking
to make a buck, but if you can just sift out the dodgy
ones, there really is a lot to be gained from the
right sources.
