When a new product comes on the market, hundreds and maybe thousands of affiliate marketers rush to promote the offer.

In the internet marketing space, people are more aware of marketing strategies and shop around for the one (or many) things that distinguish one affiliate offer from another.

I’m talking about bonuses. Just sending a potential customer to your affiliate link isn’t enough. It may be enough for products outside of the internet marketing world, but if you’re promoting products or services to other internet marketers, you need to up your game and provide one or more bonuses to incentivize your potential customers.

What Kind of Bonuses Should You Offer? 1. Reports…

The ArbiCash System

In case you don’t know what arbitrage is, it’s buying something for one price and selling it for a higher price (hopefully) and pocketing the difference.

It’s an ancient way of doing business and its use continues today because it can be very profitable.

It’s a model I used over a decade ago when I used to buy space program memorabilia on auction sites and then sell it at a profit either on eBay or locally through classified ads.

It’s a model that can also work well for webmasters.

Buy cheap traffic from one source, have that traffic directed to a webpage and then earn from clicks on ads and affiliate links …

One thing you start to see in the internet marketing world if you stay in it for any length of time is that there have been a lot of rehashed products and “new” tools which seem to do the same thing as tools you already use.

So with all the different ways to make money online and the variety of tools available to help people achieve their goals, what’s the most profitable business model out there, even for someone new to the online marketing game?

It turns out that one of those top performing business models is selling physical goods on Amazon (i.e. not acting as an Amazon affiliate selling stuff through …

WordPress Hacked

When I started building WordPress blogs a few years back, they were constantly being hacked. I spent countless hours rebuilding sites only for them to get hacked again.

But slowly I learned how to harden sites against hackers. It’s a skill not enough WordPress webmasters learn and many are unaware of just how easily an unprotected WP blog can be hacked.

Since I’d developed some expertise in building secure blogs, it’s a service I offer to clients and customers. But, every so often, a client messes with the security plugins and protocols I set up and something bad happens.

There were two such cases in point just in the last week.…

The Art of List Building

If you’re an affiliate marketer, I’m sure at some point you’ve either heard or been told that you really should build an email list.

List building can often be seen as something of a black art but at its heart is very simple in principle:

  • Put an opt-in form in front of your visitors
  • Add some incentive for them to sign up, like a free report
  • Add their email address (and possibly their name as well) when they sign up
  • Communicate/market and build a relationship with them by emailing them regularly

That’s the “what to do” of building an email list. 

The “how” is what trips people up. These are common question …

This article should be of interest to anyone looking at building their own site where they’ll be selling access to videos…

The big question I faced when looking at building Niche Site Institute site was where to host the non-free tutorial videos.

In the past, with other sites I’ve built that had tutorial videos, I’ve hosted them on my own webhosting account. The downside of this is that the more people who look at the videos, the more bandwidth is used along with a greater amount of server resources. I’ve had sites go down on occasion because too many visitors were watching videos at the same time. That doesn’t give a good …

internet-marketing-course

I’ve been thinking about all the affiliate and internet marketing courses I’ve done over the years. How many just languish on my digital shelves and how many I actually used and still use. Many had short lifetimes because they exploited a loophole or trick to achieve their aim and, once that was plugged, whatever the course taught didn’t work any more.

Then there’s the simple reality that the internet is an incredibly dynamic entity. Google changes the rules on a what – daily, weekly, monthly basis? We get to hear about the big changes like Panda and Penguin but the knock-on effect of these changes has a direct bearing on how our …

PAC-Amazon-200

If you read my previous posts, you’ll know I was interested in buying the Amazing Selling Machine a couple of years ago. In case you don’t know what that is/was, it’s a course that shows you how to make a business out of selling products on Amazon. This isn’t about building Amazon affiliate websites, but actually selling physical items through Amazon.

The course covers everything from how to set up an account with Amazon to how to source products, how to re-brand white-label products and how to have stock shipped to the Amazon Fulfillment Center. This way, you don’t have to personally warehouse stock and can leverage the low shipping costs Amazon …
