Memorial Day 2014

Memorial Day 2014

I’d like to take a break this week from our current series on The Real Secret of Affiliate Marketing to wish our American readers a wonderful Memorial Day.

I ask that each of you take the time to reflect on the freedoms you have today that were bought and paid for by the blood of fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coast guardsmen in our nation’s history.

Today is a day to put away petty political bickering and party dogma so that we honor the sacrifice of the men and women in our 250-plus year history who gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

Say a prayer for those families who have lost loved ones in recent wars and conflicts.

Finally, I ask that you enjoy your barbeque, picnic, or the Indy 500. One of the greatest ways to honor our fallen is to live each day to its fullest; to raise our families to always strive to do our best and live life. Carpe Diem! Seize the day!

From the Empowered Pros, have a great Memorial Day and we’ll see you next week for Part 3 of The Real Secret of Affiliate Marketing.

The Real Secret of Affiliate Marketing (Part 2)

shareasaleIn last week’s post we talked briefly about finding the real secret to affiliate marketing. This week we cover the first scenario where you have a product or service to sell but not a HUGE list of followers on your website or blog.

For our purpose let’s say it you have an eBook entitled, “How to make millions of dollars on yard sales.” You’ve done the research, you’ve written the book and published it in several formats for readers to download. You plan to sell the eBook for $49.95

As did your research and wrote the book you also came up with an idea for a downloadable training program as well as providing exclusive seminars designed to walk your buyers through a step-by-step process on how to set up “killer” yard sales.

So what do you do now, what’s your marketing strategy? Read the rest of this entry

The Real Secret of Affiliate Marketing (Part 1)

Affiliate MarketingIf you have a blog or marketable item to sell, affiliate marketing could be just what you’re looking for to reach your prospects. Affiliate marketing gives the online entrepreneur the ability to tie into other marketers and websites such as Amazon.com, ClickBank, Commission Junction, etc. and make money by selling products through your website or your email contacts AND through other websites and email contacts.

How does it work? Glad you asked.

Most neophyte web marketers believe they can simply build a website or blog then sign up for a few affiliate programs and roll in the dough. The hope and pray people will show up on their site and magically folks will be interested in what they’re selling. In an effort to drive traffic to your site and build up your unique hits per page, you’re willing to spend a lot of time and money taking advice from the “pros”. The sad truth is, while there are plenty of “experts” out there who will sell you their latest how-to “get-rich-quick” as an affiliate program and ways to make money on the Internet…99.9% of these guys are selling…well, to put it bluntly, CRAP.

It’s the old adage, “If it sounds/looks too good to be true, it probably is.” Read the rest of this entry
