So Much To Do – So Little Time
Whether you are brand new to trying to make affiliate commissions online or an experienced full time internet marketer it is at times very difficult to get past all of the “noise”.
Most of us are signed up to many different “lists” and our email inboxes are inundated on a daily basis with all of the latest and greatest things that we “Absolutely Must Have” to make money online.
Where To Start – What To Do?
Those of us who have been lucky enough to have found a way to make consistent full time money online do not give our secrets up easily.
What I have found it comes down to is finding something that works and doing it over and over again. What’s the cliche’? Oh yeah… Wash – Rinse – Repeat.
There Are Lots Of Ways
Many of the e-books and online making money courses do in fact work – to a certain extent.
I think the reason that those who buy these courses fail to make any money with these techniques- myself included at times – is that we fail to stick with the basics.
Many times there is just so much information in the course – see my Easy FB Commissions Review for an example – that it’s just too much to digest and actually put into practice even if it does work.
Is There An Easy Way?
Often you’ll hear an expert tell you that you need to treat your online business like a business – because that is what it is. The problem is that most people have no idea what it takes to run a business – and even fewer have any clue on how to actually turn a profit with it.
Most people are used to having a job. In many ways it is far easier. In most cases all you have to do is show up on time – do what you are told to do – and you will be successful at it. The problem for many is that there is a limit to the amount of success you can have at a job, both financially as well as personally.
Are You Trapped?
I know that in the past when I had a “real job” I often felt trapped, but there was no easy way out, save for moving on to another job where the “grass was greener”. Being in Sales this was easy for me, but for those who specialize in a certain industry it isn’t always so easy to jump the fence and move on.
The Appeal Of An Online Business
There are so many people telling you that it is easy to make money online.
The truth is, as you probably already know… it’s not that easy.
You may be one of the few that actually put into practice a certain technique that you learned after reading a good e-book and actually sold something. It felt good to make some money didn’t it?
But how easy was it to keep making a consistent income? Not so easy I bet. And even if you figured out what it was that you did that actually caused that to happen were you able to turn a profit? Consistently? Not likely.
It Takes Time
Sure, there are a fortunate few in every industry that have the good fortune/karma to hit it big on the first try and the success just keeps on coming. Good for them.
For the rest of us it may seem like we are doomed to failure and forever will be stuck in our dead end job – if we are lucky enough to have a job that pays enough to pay the bills.
How I Hit It Big
It took me 9 months of near daily consistent effort – four hours or more, every day – of building websites, keyword research, practicing good SEO (search engine optimization) and much of the other stuff you have heard about and maybe even tried to apply in your own money making efforts.
Consistency Is Key
I was 6 months into it when I made my first individual sales commission of over $100.00. Previous to that I was making a mere $100 – 200 a month from Adsense ads and a Clickbank product here and there. Just enough to keep me optimistic – but truthfully I was really starting to wonder if I would ever break through.
Guess what I sold? A certain kind of Health Product. I had written an article about the benefits of a certain kind of supplement for men. Actually it was an article that I had written and posted on the US FREE ADS website (not one of my own sites) that detailed my thoughts on the scam type marketing tactics of a product I had heard about after getting some unsolicited mail in my regular mailbox.
In My Own Words
In my own words I had written an article that pointed out the obvious problems of this certain product that I was being solicited to buy – and then suggested to those reading that if they were looking for something reliable to help them with their problem “maybe they should check out a more reliable and proven brand name product”. (one that I of course had an affiliate relationship with – and had tried myself)
I didn’t at that point have the marketing skills to do anything more than that. I just trusted the actual product seller (of whom I was an affiliate) to do the actual selling for me. AND IT WORKED! I knew I was on to something.
Product Name Hi-Jacking
I have since learned that the technique I used is known in the online marketing world as “Product Name Hi-Jacking”.
Now, there are different ways to go about performing this technique. Some simple and some not so simple. All of them legal (at least the ones I use).
Easier Affiliate Commissions
I wrote a short (11 page) e-book that you can get for free by filling out the form as detailed on THIS PAGE that details my simple procedure. I also provide some other stuff that you can use in your online marketing efforts.
Good Luck Out There,
