Avoid Large Bank Processing Fees For US$ ChecksWritten by Terence Tan
Foreign website operators who join US-based affiliate programs are usually paid in US dollar-denominated checks, drawn on US banks and cashing them through foreign banks often costs a fortune.
We can often not present these checks to our local banks for payment, simply because amounts of checks are too small to cover high transaction fees charged by bank.
If you live outside US, and have ever received a check from an affiliate program, MLM, or any other paid program, you have probably faced dilemma of whether to present your US$15 check to bank...when processing fees costs US$20! As a result, many people have stacks of such hard earned "small" commission checks worth a small fortune, lying "worthless" in their home drawer...simply because it would cost too much to process them!
Incredibly, even after exhaustive searches on Google and Yahoo, as well as combing MLM and affiliate resources and discussion forums, we simply could not find any good solution to problem!
The only options available were either to join programs that offered to pay via Paypal(most programs don't), or to join only programs that allowed us to accumulate our earnings to larger amounts before sending checks. Unfortunately, even when we did not mind delays required to accumulate our hard earned commissions, we still could not avoid eventually paying bank processing fees which often still cost more than half commissions earned!

How To Make Affiliate Sales In 15 Minutes By Dan Farrell
If you are one of 98.6% of affiliate members that never make one cent from affiliate sales or make small $5.00, $10.00 commissions, then this article is for you. Even if you are making nice checks, this will interest you.
You really can start to make affiliate sales in 15 minutes with Google Adwords. http:www.adwords.google.com
Your ads will start appearing with 15 minutes for keywords you have selected. If this has you scratching your head :o) I don't blame you. I was totally new to Adwords unitl I read about Chris Carpenter's experience in making $3,405 with just one ad in his very good ebook GoogleCash. http://www.ad-alyzer.com/727/google You know those ads on right side of page of Google's search page? Well those are Adwords. You pay per click with minimum at .05, which is less than Overture's .10 PPC. Placement of your ad is based on two factors, Cost Per Click and your ad's Click Through Rate (CTR).
I have set my maximum CPC to .05 and daily budget $5.00 until I see that keywords I've selected are working and affiliate program is making sales. To cut through a lot of learning curve, there are two fantastic products, one is ebook GoogleCash which is a step by step overview of Chris Carpenter's experience with proven income results. And he has made a ton of money doing only this. http://www.ad-alyzer.com/727/google
The other is a software tool, Adword Analyzer. http://www.ad-alyzer.com/727/adwords It will find a list of related keywords, number of searches per keyword and number of advertising campaigns per keyword. Boy, do I love this software! I enter a keyword, say, mortgage, and it gives me all of above in minutes. So you can find high traffic search terms that no one is buying Google Adwords for. Another use is to identify niches that are too competitive to enter. As you can imagine it will save money, time and most importantly find search terms that you line up an affiliate for and start making money in minutes.
