6 Easy Ways on How to Make Money Online, by Jon Rognerud

A staggering $2.1 billion in affiliate marketing fees were paid to blog and website owners in 2008. This finding in a recent study by Jupiter Research confirms what many savvy internet marketers have known for a while: Affiliate marketing has become of of the top business opportunity online business the startup costs are so low and the income you generate can be mind-blowing.

Affiliate marketing involves have your own site and sending your traffic to someone's site to buy their products or services. For every sale initiated by a link from your site, you earn a percentage--an affiliate sales commission.

Affiliate marketing can be done on a part-time basis, and many are so successful that they've made it their full-time job. Equally exciting, you can get in the game in just a few hours. But how successful you are is based on the amount of time and effort you devote. Here are six tips to get you started to how to make money online:

1. Create a website or blog

To start as an affiliate marketer, you must have a site on which to place links to the products or services recommend. There are many inexpensive website services such Hostgator and GoDaddy. It's also easy to set up a free blog through services such as Google's Blogger network. I also use Namecheap for domains and Hostnine (get a reseller account) for hosting.

2. Decide your product/service niche

Affiliate marketers help companies and entrepreneurs sell everything from jewelry and cell phones to website services and how-to-e-books. Choose an area you're familiar with or one you're enthusiastic about learning. You'll be more likely to do the work and less likely to get bored before the money starts rolling in.

3. Find products and services to promote

Many affiliate networks exist to connect merchants with affiliate site publishers who can help sell their goods. Companies such as:

  • Clickbank, E-junkie and PayDotCom lead the pack in connecting the creators of e-books and software with affiliates to help sell their digital download products.
  • Commission Junction is popular for those who want to sell more traditional wares ranging from travel services to janitorial franchises.
  • Google Adsense, which doesn't require your involvement to result in a sale. Your income is realized on a pay-per-click basis, just for leading your traffic to click to a merchant's site. PPC affiliate programs pay a lot less than programs where your referral must result in a sale. Keep in mind that a site peppered with ads and no authority or trust can look and feel like spam, and you won't get good results.
4. Affiliate site content

There are two main approaches or business models to choose from when setting up an affiliate marketing site:
  • Resource sites these sites are focused on offering lots of how-to articles and posts and then provide links or banner ads to click for more details. Frequently adding fresh related content is vital because it give people a reason to return to your site--and click some of  your money-making links.
  • Review sites you've tried the products in your niche, now you write them up and rate them to help your site visitors decide what to buy. For each product you review, you provide a link or banner ad that clicks through for sales on your merchant partner's site. Less frequent content updates are necessary--just tweak your site about once a week to let the search engines know your site's still alive, and always try to build links. Continue reading...

One Big Mistake Women in Business Make Every Day by Maisie Devine

Do you want to control your work relationships? Are you confident in your abilities? One simple gesture says it all.

People size you up pretty quickly, if not immediately upon meeting you. So it is of the utmost importance that they get the right message from the get-go. I was 15 when I figured it out and finally learned the lesson from seven years of shaking the headmaster's hand each day before the start of school. People like to be engaged openly and directly, especially upon introduction.

This earth-shattering realization let me to graduate from greeting my peers with feeble and juvenile gestures to shaking hands like an adult. Boys, while initially taken aback, generally rose to the occasion and responded; we were off to a good start and more easily initiate conversation.

Girls, well that was a completely different scenario. I would extend my hand resolutely and purposely, but receive a wimpy, lifeless, sometimes sweaty, limb in return. Often I was left wondering if they meant for me to kiss their hand, instead of shake it. They seemed so weak and unengaging. Each time, I walked away with the impression that I had all the control.

Over a decade has passed and little has changed. When I first meet someone, I instantly start making judgements based on their greeting style. It is the overture that sets the tone for the entire relationship. Are you here to do business? Or to fetch my copies from the machine? Most men give a good shake, firm and robust but not bone-crushing; most women do not. This cripples women as soon as they walk in the boardroom. With a limp handshake, they have telegraphed fragility and relinquished control.  Continue reading

So, what did you like about what you just read? Have you ever considered Affiliate marketing to make money online? Ladies, is your handshake lifeless, sweaty and wimpy?  So ladies, next time you walk into a pitch, interview, or quarterly review, put out your hand, look'em dead in the eye, and tell with your body language that you are ready to play the game--and win.
