Unlimited Residual Income From A Home based BusinessWritten by Raymond Heye
If you want ultimate online home based business you need to seriously consider a residual based online affiliate style web business and best of all I will tell you how to get one free. One of biggest mistakes affiliate marketers make is that they only concentrate on building a short-term business when what we really want is a long term money making business that makes us money even while we sleep.
Firstly you need to understand what residual income is. Residual Income is income that keeps coming in month after month, year after year, from work you do once. Think of it as a royalty, you write a book or record a song and get paid forever on it. Every time a customer makes a purchase, you get a commission. When they renew their orders, you continue to collect a commission of up to 80%. It is a well known fact that 95% of would-be internet marketers never make a red cent or make a few sales then quit, believing that game is too complicated, difficult or market is saturated.
If you donít see immediate results donít give up, persevere and you will make it, but only if you donít quit! Understand that you should be building a long-term affiliate business with related residual income streams and not just something that makes you a few dollars per sale. If for any reason you stop advertising, you want to be in position to still have a solid business with a good income. Are you looking for a very cost effective way to make a huge residual income that you have grown over time then let me show you why online affiliate programs are ultimate home based business. Many people donít have their own products to market online, and even if they do, they would have to handle shipment of products and find ways to except credit cards. Where online affiliate programs provide a wide variety of quality products, which meet every customerís needs, and you can market those products world wide without worrying about their shipment. All you need is to refer people to your affiliate websites. Any orders taken from that website are automatically handled by company on your behalf. Besides commission you can earn from direct products selling, thereís another powerful way to make a great income online called residual income, and this is by referring other people to join opportunity.
This way you can build a network of people where you make a commission for each sale they make. Some companies limit you to one level of sponsored affiliates, which means, you only get commission for sales of first level of people you refer, however, MANY other great companies do NOT limit your income potential, actually, itís infinite deep network where you can enjoy passive income. The great news is you are NOT required to put any money down in order to join an online affiliate opportunity, you can join for FREE! Some of them might claim that you must buy their products (you should avoid these), even though I believe in concept of buying from your own store, real opportunities should not force you to perform nor limit your potential, so it is all up to you. Of course, any kind of business requires some kind of investment, generally speaking itís a trade off between time and money, more you are willing to invest, less time you need to build a solid business, and vise-versa. So it is all up to you.
Affiliate Product Reviews - An Ultimate Selling TacticWritten by Jason Gazaway
If you truly want to generate sales, one great way to do so is to create separate web pages for each of your affiliate products and include reviews of each product. Pictures, of course, speak a thousand words, and a picture of each product is very important to closing sale.
Why does this process work so well? It's simple; people want to see and know all about a product before pull out their credit card! Here are some points to be sure to include in your affiliate product review pages:
* Always have an uncluttered web page with blocks of text that are easy to read and understand. If you crowd a great deal of information, few people will read all of it. It has been scientifically proven that most people read only about one-third of information contained in any sales page or review. So, make your web page product review easy to scan and grab specific points from without reading every single word.
* Use highlights to call out specific important points. Again, this goes back to fact that few people will read all words. If a specific area is highlighted in yellow or another bright color, their eyes will be drawn to that specific region and that may be all that they read. If you can convince reader with you highlighted section that they simply MUST know all about this product, then they will probably read more. If you do not grab their attention with compelling information, they will probably continue to another web page.
* Specific benefits to reader must be described in very few words. Tell reader exactly what product will do for them and call them to action!
* Please graphic help attract a person to spend a moment looking at your page. A boring page, in terms of graphics, will probably not hold reader's attention long enough to even get them to read highlights, much less sales information.
