How to make your affiliate sales take off in a hurryWritten by Chris K.
Affiliate programs are probably easiest and simplest way to achieve business success online. Indeed there are many online entrepreneurs from all over world making a very comfortable income from various affiliate programs. Yet there are multitudes of people who will testify to trying a few and never coming anywhere near success. In this article we will look at key factors that hinder success.
Most join affiliate schemes with wrong attitude
The Biggest problem that hinders most affiliates from making any money is fact that most join affiliate programs with wrong attitude. And most of blame has to be taking by hype peddlers who sell these schemes. They usually give impression that little or no work is required to become a successful affiliate pulling in a six figure income. Nothing could be further from truth.
The net has not changed basic foundational facts of life. In this life there is nothing for nothing. There are no free lunches. To get anything worth having, there is a price to be paid. Actually most affiliate programs claim that joining is free, but this is not entirely true. There is time you will need to spend on program and at beginning, as you learn ropes, you will tend to spend loads of time. Time is priceless because we have a set number of hours in a day and we cannot buy more time. Therefore in my mind, a program charging $10 to join but where I will end up spending less time than another program which is free to join but extremely time consuming, is much cheaper. The time-consuming affiliate program that is free to join is in fact a lot more expensive.
One of reasons why it makes all difference to join a program that deals in an area of your interest or hobby is because you will hardly notice extra hours and time you spend on program. This means that putting in extra hours of work that are required to get any affiliate program off ground will be an almost effortless chore for you.
Good affiliate schemes have proven marketing methods and systems. Follow them.
WHAT! INTERNET ETIQUETTE Net Etiquette?Written by By Vickie J. Scanlon
Many people know how -- and do conduct themselves in real world properly. However, many people are unaware that this same conduct needs to be applied online as well. Net etiquette is basically rules you should follow while in Cyberspace. These seven rules are what I learned on my Cyber journey and what I try to follow while on Internet lets see if you agree.
First and foremost, you must remember that even though you are sitting alone at your computer and no one is replying, say to your blog, does not mean they are not lurking (reading and learning but not commenting). Translated, there are real people reading what you are writing and if you make derogatory comments or accusations they will be felt by that person. If you do make derogatory comments or accusations please verify, verify, verify, verify this is libel.
Second, be ethical being ethical should not go out door when you get into Cyberspace what applies to offline business and personal conduct, applies to online business and personal conduct.
Third, if you go into a forum it is advisable to take time to do some lurking before posting. Learn ways of forum before posting. Some forums will not tolerate any advertising they are there to discuss their topic and to learn, and to share information.
