*reasonable income expectations touted byrepparttar top management ofrepparttar 117148 company offeringrepparttar 117149 opportunity.

*support systems and training resources available to helprepparttar 117150 participants succeed.

One thing that really struck home with me was a statement made byrepparttar 117151 founder ofrepparttar 117152 company that I eventually selected for my home based business. It went something likerepparttar 117153 following:

"Hardly a day goes by that I donít hear from an affiliate questioning why he or she is not seeing a big check yet. More times than not,repparttar 117154 person asking hasnít even been involved for more than 90 days and is only barely beginning to even understand howrepparttar 117155 whole system works. And frankly, even if repparttar 117156 number was six months, itís still much too early to be expecting a significant income stream to have developed.

I always say that if youíre not willing to give a business at least a year, donít even bother getting involved. You need to understand that it takes time to get to know allrepparttar 117157 nuances of repparttar 117158 compensation plan. It takes time to determine which products you want to lead with. It takes time to develop a game plan. It takes time to figure out what marketing activities deliverrepparttar 117159 biggest bang forrepparttar 117160 buck. Anything worthwhile takes sustained effort. If youíre not thinking long term, youíve set yourself up for failure."

To sum it up,repparttar 117161 selection process should focus on reality (there is no "magic" in home based businesses) and reject any so-called "opportunities" that seem too good to be true.

There have been millions of words written about what makes good advertising copy, take a bit of time to read some of them. You'll find many great articles and ebooks you can get for free, study them!

Google has a set of standard guidelines as to what they deem acceptable when it comes to writing your ad. You need to read these and stick to them. The next job is to decide what people searchingrepparttar internet for your product might type in as a search, for example if you decide to sell mortgages you might use "cheap mortgages" or "best mortgage deals".

These phases are known as keywords, and you bid forrepparttar 117147 keywords on Google. Your bid isrepparttar 117148 amount of money you are prepared to pay for each click on your advert, and bidding starts at $0.05. So if you get a keyword for $0.05 and you get 100 clicks on your sales page, it costs you 100 x $0.05 ie $5.00.

Now let's have a look at your potential profits. A good sales page might get a return of 2% - 3%, ie out of every hundred clicks 2 - 3 will be converted into sales or sign-ups. So if you are promoting mortgages, out ofrepparttar 117149 hundred clicks for your $5.00 outlay you could expect two or three sales, ie a return of $100 - $150.

Realistically though you would be doing very well to pay as little as $0.05 per click for a market as crowded as mortgages, you would most likely have to bid up considerably higher. But even at $0.50 per click, you would only be paying $50 for your return of $100 - $150 inrepparttar 117150 example above, still a very healthy profit margin.

Obviouslyrepparttar 117151 more popularrepparttar 117152 keyword or phraserepparttar 117153 higher your bid will need to be to secure it, so you will find that phrases like "cheap mortgages" or "best mortgage deals" will be very expensive but will attract a lot of traffic.
