Internet breakthroughWritten by Pavel Lenshin
Enormous opportunity. This is first thought coming to mind about Internet. The only limits have implied by physical world and rules of nature. No country boundaries, no government regulations, no one-man power, fully unlimited market, immense business potential, unrestricted growth, space earnings and so on and so forth.
There are also a lot of fishy moments and some frightening things, due to "uncontrolled" nature of Internet like virus epidemics or violence propaganda. There will always be sick people who use Internet to spread "products" of their morbid conscience. The mankind should acknowledge that reality and do it best to counteract negative influence, therefore creating perfect conditions for unrestricted positive development and opportunities we will speak about.
To have clear understanding of opened opportunities and world, we are happy to live in, let us briefly speak about development of human society history.
The industrial revolution of previous centuries created a feeling of freedom to learn, to work and earn as much money as he or she could within limits of respective society. Before that happened a person who was born at serf or slave family was unable to make his or her way into higher society, didn't posses any rights but one - to be exploited. So industrial revolution had cardinally changed way people live granting them mostly equal conditions to achieve their goal. Everyone was given a right to learn, apply for a job and earn what he or she deserves, despite race, age or social status. That was dawn of high education and industrial manufactures which, hopefully, and how unordinary it would sound, comes to their dusk. Never before had average person been granted with keys to satisfy their every need at quickest time and best quality.
It is clear now that Informational revolution has taken place. It is not some kind of virtual talks and philosophy about nothing that we hear all time. Internet, being most important discovery of informational era, provides every living person with tools he hardly could imagine and clearly realize.
Speaking closely about wealth as a target every person would like to achieve let's draw a simple example. Consider you were born in average or poor family which are majority in past and, unfortunately, in modern world also, despite fact that standards of living skyrocketed and what is thought to be "average" now where dream of wealth even a 30 years ago. Let us also assume your goal in life is to achieve complete financial freedom.
If your birth had happened in agricultural era, only future you would have is to continue living your parents' life working 15 hours a day for landowner.
The older generation of our days had more freedom to decide where to go and what to achieve enjoying results of industrial revolution. These steps are necessary comprising education, including high education, without which a financial success would be questionable, getting a job or establishing a business with other enthusiasts. The life flows under industrial "society" are also "local". The business is usually run at place or settlement person lives in. It doesn't actually matter what size of market it occupies, what does matter is that is still has it's own physical boundaries which couldn't be overcome. The possibilities of business growth were also limited by desire of people inhabited this or that settlement, to purchase product or service being sold. Therefore net profits of such a business directly depended on number of people or size of market company served. Needless to say it takes long years of everyday work to achieve some satisfactory results. The financial freedom under these conditions had quite foggy look, but still there was at least a chance to achieve it for ordinary people.

By Stephen Bucaro
When starting a Web business, most people choose a topic for their Web site and then look for products and affiliate programs related to that topic. In this article, I suggest searching for a group of related affiliate programs first, then designing your Web site around those programs.
There are many affiliate directories and affiliate network Web sites where you can search for best programs. For this example, I use Commission Junction http://www.jc.com This affiliate network site provides a vast amount of searchable information on over 1200 affiliate programs.
On Commission Junction's front page, click on link "Search all advertisers". This will take you to a page with a drop down list where you can select a category. In order to search information on Commission Junction, you must be a member, but membership is free. After you login to Commission Junction, go to bottom of page to "Find Advertisers & links". Here you can get a list of all advertisers, search advertisers by keyword, or browse for advertisers.
Click on "Browse for advertisers". This takes to to a table where you can arrange affiliate programs based upon "EPC" or "Network Earnings". EPC is average earnings per 100 clicks. It reflects affiliate programs ability to convert clicks into commissions. Network Earnings is a rank, on a scale of one to five, of an affiliate program based on amount of commissions paid. In head of table, click on name of parameter you are interested in. This rearranges entries based upon that parameter.
