5 Essentials every online marketer must know. If you are a new Affiliate Marketer read this!

So you want to make some extra money online by being an Affiliate Marketer. Affiliate marketing is fun and you’ve got lots of choices for what you can promote PLUS lots of places to advertise at no cost or low cost. I don’t have to even tell you what to market, you have so many choices. Companies want people to become an Affiliate and market their product online and pay you a commission for doing so.  A great gig for anyone who wants to work from home.

Amazon may be one of the largest companies familiar to you that offers an Affiliate program.  Clickbank is another very familiar name, allowing you to promote thousands of digital products and earn a commission for your efforts. It’s free to get started so you can sign up for a free account and learn more about how affiliate marketing works without making an investment.   

If you are new to online marketing, here are five essentials you need to know so you can maximize what you earn as an Affiliate.

1.  For those serious about building an online business and who want to market a number of programs, product, services or opportunities, you will want to start with a home base for your activities. The best way to do this is by booking your own domain name. This will cost you as little as $10 a year and establishes a permanent, reputable home for your business. If you are doing affiliate marketing on the side from your full time occupation (like so many do), it will also help your activities separate. Having your own domain name makes you and your business look more solid, accountable and professional. Your domain name can be your name, a business name, a catch-all name for your online activities that includes a few key words.    You can book a domain name with a reputable domain registrar, do a search at Google or Bing to find an option that works best for you.

2. In my role as a consultant to small and home business owners, I also recommend a system for organizing your business. A pen and paper will work initially.  Over time you will come to recognize that as an online marketer time, and the saving of time, is critical to being able to market often  and efficiently. You see,  most websites that offer advertising require you to sign up for Membership account, and that means multiple user name and passwords at what could eventually be dozens and dozens of sites. So I recommend, a Password Manager program called Roboform. As your online business grows and you start to lose your sanity keeping track of all your user names and passwords you will come to realize the incredible organization value of a program like Roboform. It will make your logins or form filling, much faster and that means less time trying to recall or find passwords and more time for doing what makes you money – promotion.

3. If you are new to online marketing you need to understand that it is not enough to promote. You need a reliable method for tracking your ad results. In other words, if you post an ad, you want to know how many clicks you got on your ad. If you don’t know what kind of hit rate you are getting you have no idea of the effectiveness of your ad, or the advertising source.    These programs that allow you to do this are called Ad Tracker Software or Ad Analysis software.  Most are free or very low cost. You can get started with a free Webmaster Tools account from Google.  Some of the companies you advertise with may also offer you an ad tracking tool within their member area

4.  I talk to many new online marketers, and they will tell me they have some amazing product that will sell itself it is so good. This is absolute nonsense. ALL products, no matter how good they are, need to be promoted to sell.     If you want to make online sales you need to promote constantly.  Understand that PROMOTION is what drives sales – it is so important that 80 – 90% of your time in building your online business should be devoted to promotion. I don’t mean surfing, researching, or face booking and tweeting with your friends. I mean time spent actually posting ads online at classified ad sites, forums, blogs, safelists, traffic exchanges, pay per click, joint ventures, ad swaps, and email marketing. If you want to make money online as an affiliate marketer know that constant, consistent promotion is critical.  Some see this as a very boring part of being an online marketer, get over it, promotion is what you have to do to earn money.

5.  Don’t do this alone. Affiliate marketing can be very frustrating if you don’t know what you are doing and not seeing any results for your efforts.  If you are determined to make money online, then invest in yourself, take a course, download eBooks, participate in a webinar, find a coach, training program or otherwise so you can learn the best methods.  My company offers online training, software, advertising and resources for people who want to learn how to earn at home.   Get a free Associate membership and get on your way to learning what works so you can join the growing ranks of people working from home and benefiting from affiliate marketing.

Product Review: Tweetomatic Profiteer

We have reviewed a number of Twitter promotion products (over 12) and were hesitant to review yet another one. We know Twitter is a powerful marketing tool but there are so many on the market, so when Tweetomatic Profiteer came across my desk I sighed and thought what else could be new? (I know, a ridiculous thought given that the Internet and promotion tactics, and software are always changing. But it was a Friday and I was beat, I’m sorry). I’m back at full steam now and dug into this new product with the attention it deserves, because this Twitter Software is the next generation and DOES have a lot of clever additions that I have not seen in other Twitter products AND it targets a specific niche. Read on.

Tweetomatic Profiteer was developed by Imran S and Mike Wright, two industry insiders who are in a unique position to deliver a product that performs as promised.

Specifically, Tweetomatic Profiteer automates the management of a Twitter account by 95%. Importantly the automation this product offers is 100% by Twitters rules, if it wasn’t we would have stopped our review right then and there. Marketers need automation but they need to live by the rules, we know that and so too do the developers of Tweetomatic Profiteer.

The # 1 thing we liked about Tweetomatic Profiteer was how it ties in beautifully with ClickBank. (ClickBank is a hugely popular company with over 10,000 products you can promote to earn commission). ClickBank is one of the most popular Affiliate companies on the web. So having a tool like Tweetomatic Profiteer as a promotion tool is a ClickBank marketers dream come true!

We also liked that this product was well tested and researched. We have found that too many of these promotion products get released too early without adequate testing, research and user feedback. We are happy to say that Tweetomatic Profiteer is not one of those prematurely released products. The accompanying manual is extremely thorough and will fill in any user knowledge gaps. The developers have videos and a blog for common questions and is very user friendly.

Product Review Conclusion: We give Tweetomatic Profiteer, a score of 9/10.
We highly recommend this software to web marketers, especially ClickBank marketers.

Product Review: Google Terminator

Product Review: Google Terminator

You’ve likely seen the headlines,

“Former Flat-Broke Dad Reveals Devastatingly Simple Affilate System that Efforlessly Pulls in $71,22,65 with ZERO Setup Costs and only Free Google Traffic”

When I first read this I did what you likely just did, I said “yeah right, Google Terminator is another scam or hyped ultra-useless product.”

As a product reviewer we always start off skeptical, dig in, dig around, and then try the product to see the results we get then tell you about it.

What we liked about this product, Google Terminator is that you actually get proof of the product working. As you know the web is filled with hype and promises but when you have numbers to back up a claim that gets my attention. I also know that what even with proof, what is claimed is not necessarily the same results you and I are going to get given differing circumstances. But we set out to buy the product and put it to the test.

I should also say we liked that you didn’t have to know everything about the tactics being used, you just had to be willing to learn and give the strategies a try.

We weren’t interested in this product if it showed how to do anything underhanded or wasn’t on the level. Getting free traffic is always a good thing but not if you somehow manage to tick off Google. We are happy to report that using this product will not get you in trouble with Google, it is only using tools and strategies that are on the level and that even Google suggests you do, but most people don’t know this.

What you do get in the Google Terminator product is some VERY helpful and very useful money making strategies. Real things you can do to see income, most likely not in the grand range of the authors, but real income using the secrets suggested.

We bought the product, tested it, ran it and in one week saw a return of $300. Not bad for a small amount of effort by one person working from a home computer. Now we are familiar with ClickBank and already know the value of marketing their products, so when we added in these new marketing tools it was easy to see the value of this product to anyone new to online marketing as well as those who have been online for longer.

We also saw our traffic stats go up to in the time frame we ran the tests and confirmed this as the source with Google Analytics.

Conclusion: The authors of this product, Google Terminator are brilliant marketers and have pumped up the value and the bonuses for ordering early. Even with that you are getting a tremendous value at the list price of $47. I know for a fact that some of the bonuses alone are worth far more than that. The value you will get from the promotion, and Google and ClickBank features makes it worth it 100%. We’ve seen this product priced on some sites for much much more, $67 and up.
