3. MISCELLANEOUS WORK
a. Go get subscribers for your newsletter! Once you reach 1000, you can start pursuing selling ads. The two best resources I've found for increasing subscribers, are:
http://www.topezineads.com/cgi- bin/affiliate/b.cgi/862 This one has an ENORMOUS database of ezines. You can search them for what they offer: free ads, ad swaps, accept articles, etc. Submit your ezine and offer a free classified ad to new subscribers. http://hop.clickbank.net/hop.cgi? webworks/paaads Sign your ezine up here to receive classified ads from people who have agreed to subscribe to your ezine.
b. Advertise your affiliate programs. Until you have YOUR OWN product to sell, you can be an "affiliate" of other folks' products and earn commissions on sales. This means putting a lot of work into promotion. Run lots of classified ads. There are lots of both free and paid classifieds available. I finally purchased a program that submits 15 ads at a time to 1000's of classified sites. PLUS, I advertise DAILY at Yahoo. At Yahoo, you are allowed 10 ads per account. And ads a t Yahoo last for 30 days. BUT most will only be seen for 24 hours, since other ads coming in push them down list so far that they are not read. SO - I have 4 Yahoo accounts. 10 ads per account. I submit 2 accounts a day, on alternating days, so I always have 20 ads current. It's called: WORK! . http://www.yahoo.com http://firstname.lastname@example.org (Classified Submitter) Of course, this is not an exhaustive account of all work you will run into. But, have you heard enough? Does this sound like a business you want to dive into? No, it's not for everyone. But it is something that anyone can do, if they are willing to apply themselves. It is not a quick-cash deal. But with a no-quit attitude, it WILL start happening. You will grow in your knowledge and skills. Your reputation will grow, hits to your site will grow, and you WILL see results!
For me, it's perfect opportunity to stay at home and be available to my kids, yet to continue to grow and learn - AND EARN! And you can, also! But you'll have to decide right away which side of story you're going to believe! And when you do finally realize that "Get Rich Quick Gurus" are probably all talk, then there's really only one decision that you need to make ---- to put your head down and WORK - until you see results!!! Believe me, reward is more than financial!!!!!
