newsI’m always excited about sharing this information with you because I truly believe you can change your financial future.

Having said that however, you need to understand that in order to change your future, you have to start by taking some sort of action.

That’s why it’s imperative that you realize … that what your reading or learn here, won’t do you any good, if you don’t do anything with the information.

You have to put the information I share with you into action.

Action produces results!

You are?

Good… then let’s get started!

Making money as an affiliate isn’t all about the marketing. It’s also about choosing profitable products. Here’s how…

Tip #1: Choose products with proven track records. If you’re choosing products on Clickbank.com, then choose those at the top of their categories (i.e., the best sellers) and those with high gravity numbers (between about 75 and 150). In addition, ask the vendor about his conversion and refund rates.

Tip #2: Do NOT choose products based on price alone. Big price plus big commission percentages equals big profits, right?

NOT always. Read more

I have always been impressed by how the Internet Marketing Gurus continue to write articles for online exposure.

And that is why Article Marketing needs to be a part of your marketing strategy.

Many people feel they are just not good at writing and that can hold you up for a long time. But, you will need to change that type of thinking if you are planning on building an online business! As a business coach, I decided I needed to learn how to take advantage of this and get my ‘sales agents’ out there working for me A.S.A.P.

What will writing articles do?

  • Make you a published writer – Wow! I was so excited and my family impressed by that little fact. Of course, it is a big deal for someone like me that always wanted to be a published writer! And, what seems difficult to my family and friends, really is very simple for me, now. Now that my own business coaches convinced me, that is!
  • Writing articles will get the ‘word’ out about you and your business – as an entrepreneur and small business owner or just starting an internet business
  • Reach targeted buyers online, bringing in organic traffic (not paid for traffic)
  • It is a self promotion method that takes little time to accomplish Read more

As you already know, especially is you have signed up for my Building Your Email List Mini-Course
(Sign up at the top right hand corner of my web), people (your Target Market) use different words when they search online. These search terms are called keywords.

Keyword Research tools assist in discovering topics that people are currently searching for that are related to your market product or service. You would use these keywords in the articles you write, each day, that are each 250-500 words, relating to the topics your prospective market is searching for. Provide articles that
answer the readers’ questions in their searches.

Example: “Dog Training” when entered into Google Suggest
tells me that I should write articles about
“Dog Training Secrets” or “Dog Training New Jersey”.

And, of course, we all know that building our list is building our market contacts; rather we are a brick and mortar business, or an online marketer selling our own products and affiliate products.

Key Insight: My Coach, Connie Green, has taught me that the most popular topics, have the most competition within the search engines–meaning, that you will be fighting against hundreds or thousands of competitors to get the attention of the market to your article. This course, by Connie Green, will help you quickly:

Newsletters & Emails to Subscribers

What else can you do with them?

Do you have an email list? Are you submitting online articles?


  • When you send emails to your subscribers or send out your regular newsletter, post an article, do you stop at that? Have you heard of re-purposing?

Start posting the updates you send to your subscribers and your newsletters or ezines to your blog as well.

Some of your subscribers may not get a chance to read your emails before they are shuffled down their inbox screen or worse yet, they may have filters that are blocking your emails altogether. This will allow them to still receive the valuable information you have to share AND give you more quality content for your blog.

Friends will ask if I can refer someone for cleaning windows, getting credit repair assistance, and on and on – It’s getting more and more difficult to get new people to buy from you, straight out. Some people simply will not buy from those they’ve never heard of and with whom they don’t have a relationship.

Your prospective clients will probably be asking these questions:
– What is this product/service all about?
– What is the main purpose of this product or service?
– How does it solve my problem? Or, help me?
– Is this merchant someone I can trust?
– How do I feel about this offer?

Consider what your prospective clients are looking for. Knowing your target market will help answer these questions during the pre-selling process; by writing copy that “sells” the way you would like to be sold.

– Pre-selling is done in a variety of ways, including what is referred to as an ethical bribe.
