Post Beginners guide to affiliate programs
How affiliate programs work

Brief description: You send people to a web site. They buy something, or sign up for something, and you are paid a commission.

Affiliate programs are revenue sharing arrangements set up by companies selling products and services. As a web site owner, you are rewarded for sending customers to the company.

For example, by February 1998 Amazon.com, one of the affiliate marketing pioneers, had attracted more than 30,000 webmasters giving Amazon.com wonderful publicity in exchange for a small commission on sales. (By 2004, it was over the 900,000 affiliate mark.)

These pay-per-sale or pay-per-lead programs are usually remarkably easy to join.

After carefully reading the terms and conditions, which vary from program to program, you place a link from your site or newsletter to the vendor. When someone clicks on the link and buys a product or service from the business, you earn a commission.


Harness your passion

I laugh when I see "experts" proclaiming that THEIR way is the way to make money on the Internet. There are dozens, hundreds - maybe even thousands - of different ways for imaginative people to launch an Internet business.

One way which works well for many people is to concentrate on a small niche. Choose a topic in which you are passionately interested, and create a website around that theme. Then select affiliate programs which closely fit the theme of your site and blend them into the site, using text links.

If possible, write about the products from first-hand knowledge, so that you become a respected, credible source of reliable information.

The more targeted your traffic, the more likely it is that people will buy.

The huge advantage of basing a business on a topic in which you are passionately interested is that you will enjoy running your business - it will be much more like a fascinating hobby than a job.


Select your target

Here's what the professionals do. Before they do anything else, they decide WHO they are going to sell products to. (I know that's not strictly grammatical, but "to whom" sounds awfully stuffy.)

DON'T select the product first. Select your target audience first.

Be precise. Zero in on a group of people with a particular interest or problem. Now ask yourself: Where do they gather? What magazines or ezines do they read? What websites do they visit? What email discussion groups do they subscribe to?

How can you approach them?

Is it easy to get in front of their eyeballs? You're looking for an easily identifiable target. There's no sense in building a website and then trying to figure out how to attract your audience. Do it the other way round. Decide who your audience is and then build your site.


Become interested in a hot topic

Here's another choice. Instead of setting up a site based on your favorite hobby, delve deeply and become a specialist in a subject which is hot right now.

You'll find that as you immerse yourself in the topic, delving deeper and deeper, you'll become intensely interested in it. The more you learn, the less your business will seem like work.

You can choose almost ANY topic to be the theme for your site. However, before you begin, look in the AssociatePrograms.com directory and make sure there are suitable affiliate programs which fit your theme.

Aim to be the most knowledgeable person on the Net in your small niche. If you build a really useful site, people will recommend your site and link to it, giving you wonderful free publicity. For us, this began to happen only a month or so after we launched PayPerClickSearchEngines.com


Promote products which are in high demand
It sounds so simple, doesn't it? In fact, it's so simple it's very easy to overlook. Sell things that people want.

Information products are good to sell because that's mainly what people use the Internet for - to seek information.

Digital products have high profit margins and often have high commissions.

Bargains are always in demand. Coupon sites which offer the latest bargains are labor-intensive but have proved profitable. This is a highly competitive field now.

Jumping on new products and the latest fads can also reap rewards for the agile.

An Ernst & Young study found that the most popular products bought online are:

* Computer related products (40%)
* Books (20%)
* Travel (16%)
* Clothing (10%)
* Recorded Music and Subscriptions (6%)
* Gifts (4%)
* Investment (4%)


Get paid - without sales

In some cases, your visitors don't even have to buy anything. If they fill out a survey, ask for a free report, ask for a free sample or perhaps download software to try, you get paid. WebSponsors has dozens of such offers you can promote. You're sure to find some that suit your site's theme. These are pay-per-lead programs.

Good networks providing pay-per-lead offers include:

* DirectLeads
* ShareaSale


You need lots of traffic


If you already have a busy site and the product you choose to promote is attractive to your visitors, you should start earning money straight away. If you have a new, low-traffic site, you have a lot of work ahead of you.

Several times I've seen suggestions that to make reasonable money from a website you need at least 500 unique visitors a day. That seems about right IF you have a very tightly targeted audience - and also have a newsletter which gives you more income and helps remind people about your site.

Some website owners laugh at the 500-a-day figure and say you need at least five times that figure. (My websites attract thousands of visitors every day.)

Numbers alone aren't enough - you need to build trust and credibility.

Merely attracting traffic isn't enough. You have to learn how to encourage people to click on the links and buy something. So make sure you promote really good products.

ok. heres what id do. get yourself a copy of microsoft frontpage 2003. bootleg or legit it dont matter bootleg is cheaper haha

i and alot of others use that to make webpages etc. im still learning and i like to try things myself. learn from my previous mistakes and so on. just have a go yourself. if u need templates for websites. u can buy dvds on ebay filled with loads of dif templates u can work with. or do a design urself.

also there are ebooks available and info online on how to build web pages and so on. but if u stick with fpage then i and few others can help and guide you.

another thing is u dont even need a website for some things/ take clickbank for example. u just sign up there. get ur id. then browse cb marketplace for products. create a hoplink. aka your affil link. then just send people to that. use classifed ads and so on. thts one thing i do and have stuck to.. there are so many things u can do. i have post a free website for clickbank members in the freebie section of this forum. all u need is a cb id. domain name and host., and ur away.

If you cannot afford Frontpage and you do not want to get a "questionable" copy try Nvu instead. It is free at:

Post air max pas cher even though it fairly busy even
7860DW Cartridge Review
The mono laser multifunction printer can certainly really be described as a workhorse of the small business office. It has taken the place of the photocopier as a key live without piece of desktop equipment, supplying print,air max pas cher, copy, scan and,air max pas cher, in the matter of Brother MFC-7860DW,air max pas cher, fax.
It a really elegant little multifunction,air max pas cher, not a great deal wider than a length of A4 paper. The flatbed scanner has a low-profile Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) above its flatbed scanner,air max pas cher, together with a folding,air max pas cher, 35-sheet feed tray.
The control panel goes the full width of the machine and, even though it fairly busy,air max pas cher, the feature groups are well laid out. There are eight quick-dial buttons on the acute left,air max pas cher, and after that three short rows of fax,air max pas cher, copy as well as print choices.
In the centre there a 2-line by 16-character, backlit LCD text display,air max pas cher, along with three lighted mode buttons with regard to fax,air max pas cher, scan and copy in front. To the right of the display is a diamond of navigation keys, then a number pad and then Start and also Stop buttons at the right-hand end.
Beneath the control panel is the paper-out slot and also entirety of the upper section of the printer may be hinged upward upon supports,air max pas cher, in the event of paper jams,air max pas cher, although we still saw not any throughout testing. Under the paper-out slot is a high-gloss strip displaying the Brother logo and this folds down to become a single-sheet paper feed, for the purpose of special media. In the bottoom of the front panel is a 250-sheet primary paper tray.
The machine works with USB and also 10/100 Ethernet connections, but you might also connect it wirelessly.
The drum and toner cartridge is a two-piece consumable, although the Brother MFC-7860DW toner cartridges clip into the drum assembly, since you can replace them quite a few times prior to needing to exchange the drum.
Brother supplies a copy of PaperPort 11SE for the purpose of document management and OCR, as well as drivers for Windows in addition to OS X. The company additionally supplies support for Linux,air max pas cher, through an optionally available driver download.
Brother rates the MFC-7680DW at 26ppm and our lab tests got really close by this,air max pas cher.
The quality of prints out of the device is really good with the Brother MFC-7860DW printer toner cartridges, having crystal clear,air max pas cher, sharp black text looking almost letterpress in precision, whilst the default resolution is actually a pretty standard 600dpi.
The print engine can certainly go up to 2,air max pas cher,400 x 600dpi, but when we tried using this in order to print our photo test, we nevertheless saw a bit of banding and also loss in fine detail. Greyscale graphics also seem blotchy having visible banding,air max pas cher, whereas a copy of a printed page that has greyscale graphics was actually blotchier.
Although the MFC-7860DW can print duplex,air max pas cher, it does not possess a duplex scanner,air max pas cher, therefore it can copy a double-sided original. It may create a double-sided copy from a single-sided original,air max pas cher, however,air max pas cher, and that is useful.
The Brother MFC-7860DW printer cartridges include yields of 1,200 and 2,600 pages, neither of which is that high.
The MFC-7860DW, is really a very well built,air max pas cher, quick and a very useful piece of office gear. It crashes down a bit on the standard of copies having any greyscale content, although the principal downside is its price tag, which seems high,air max pas cher, granted its feature set.
