couple old geezers (we can
say that) like us can earn a nice monthly income through the combination
of a web site, affiliate companies, affiliate programs and visitor traffic
then you can do the same. We only discuss affiliate programs that work &
Affiliate marketing is not
rocket science and it doesn't require some special "secret affiliate
handshake". Basically you have the traffic (or we'll show you how to
get it), an advertiser wants customers and the affiliate company
contains the marketing tools and back office interface that you'll
need to effectively market the advertisers wares to the Internet
an online affiliate marketer there's no "easy button" for you to push, however
there are many ways to make your affiliate programs work better for
you and for you to increase your traffic and profits. Our goal is to show you what to do, and just as importantly what NOT to do
in order to be a financially successful online affiliate marketer. It's
time for you to get out of the mindset that you're web site or blog is
simply a medium for you to entertain the people of the world because you don't know how to monetize it and make it
profitable. If you're going to be a
webmaster with a web site or blog, and you're going to put hundreds or thousands of
hours into your online creation, then by golly you ought to earn some good
ol' affiliate program income for the time and effort that you invest
into your site!
You've already seen all the ads,
banners, Google Adsense, and those irritating pop-ups out there so you
already know that practically all sites and blogs are advertising something. OK,
and... and let's go ahead and get this out of the way... as you poke
around our site you'll see that we've got our wrinkly fingers in the ol'
Google Adsense affiliate advertising pie too.
Web sites (even the Mom &
Pop types) that are advertising offers through affiliate networks or
affiliate programs are earning their owners
money, some sites are earning small amounts, extra spending
money, while others are earning thousands of dollars per day. Then of
course there's people like Margie and I, somewhere in the middle. We're not giving blood
and collecting aluminum cans to pay for our meds, yet we're not quite in
that beachfront behemoth of a Florida mansion either. Regardless
of the amount of money you earn from your web site all sounds the
same... Click-cha-ching. Money is changing hands many times
per second, of every minute, during all hours of every single day
and it just never stops. You can believe that it'll go on for as long as
well, there's an Internet, people on earth to surf it, and all those
human wants and needs that must be filled.
newbie, I want to get started: If you're a newbie to building free web
sites, generating free traffic or you're just not clear about affiliate
programs and how they can benefit you, then we will get
you schooled up easy enough. And remember this site is not the only source
for affiliate program or affiliate marketing information, it's just
a starting point for you. We'll tell you what we know, what has
worked for us and what has not worked but ultimately you'll need to
fine tune your knowledge through self education, and gain your own
experience by getting out there and doing it. Once you know what
affiliate marketing is all about then you can focus on your site
content, traffic generation, SEO (search engine optimization), and
more. We'll explain more about these things later, however for now
we recommend you start at the new to
affiliate marketing area.
I've been online a while and want to
move forward: If you've been online a while and you want to move up to the next level and monetize your web site.
You may have already heard the term "monetize" which means "converting some benefit
received in non-monetary form (your web site and traffic) and
turning it into a monetary form (your affiliate commissions). You likely already do that daily... work at a regular jobs and
give up something of value (your time) to the company, and then they
give you money. You monetize yourself in your regular job, so why
not monetize your web site or blog? OK, just took my medication and I'm back on track now. As someone with a web site or
you need is visitors since without them you effectively have no customers
and you can make no sales. For you we recommend you focus first in our free traffic area
to learn about content, SEO, traffic programs etc. Once you have a
good feel for how to bring them in, then you can focus on the second
phase which is providing them those things they need to solve their
problems, and you'll find those kinds of visitor solutions through
the many advertisers offers in the affiliate
company programs area.
but it's just not working, I'm going broke: So you've had a web site
or a blog for a couple years and you feel you've just been entertaining
the Internet masses for free and you haven't made a dime yet, we've been
there and have already earned our geriatric support t-shirts and we
understand. Or you've
somehow managed to spend down most of the children's college fund for
hosting, advertising, Google Adwords and every thing in between. If this
is you then you need to stop working so hard at losing money and get back
to the basics. It could be your content, lack of traffic, quality of your
untargeted visitors, search engine optimization, the affiliate programs
you're currently with or any combination of those and more. I recommend
you scour this entire site (yes I know you're a Guru) until you determine
what it is that you're doing wrong, and then... don't do it anymore.
What we're going to show you is something that anyone with a web site or blog can do, we already
know it works... we've done it. We'll show you examples, some proof
to spice it up a bit and we'll also teach you what we've learned. More importantly
we hope what we share will motivate you to
get started today so you can earn from affiliate programs for the
many years to come.
Earning an income from affiliate
companies doesn't take any special webmaster or marketing skills
and if you already have a blog or web site then you're half way
there. If you don't currently have a web site or blog that's OK too
as I'll get you pointed in the right direction so you can set-up
your blog free, or even build your own web site for free.
Making money from your web site also does not require over-priced
software and you will NOT buy anything from this site. You'll
benefit directly from our years of
online affiliate experience, and you'll save time and money in the long run.
We've already made many of the affiliate mistakes along the way so you don't have to.
If you're unfamiliar with affiliate marketing or companies
and how they can help you earn an income from your site or blog then
I highly recommend you read the "Affiliates
101" section first. This section will tell you all about
affiliate marketing and companies, how they can can generate income
for you, and I've saved the best for last... what methods you should
use to maximize your income right now, and also increase your
affiliate income in the future.
If you already know about affiliate marketing then all you
really need now are some professional and high quality affiliate
management companies to join so the "Affiliate
Companies" list area is for you. Any affiliate company
you ever join should be 100% free (no fee), they should provide you
with a large selection of advertiser links & banners for your
particular targeted market, and lastly they should have a proven
record of on-time payouts to the Publishers (web or blog owners).
Affiliate companies are no different then anything else in life, you
want and deserve 'value".
If by chance you're involved in compiling mailing lists,
emailing them with your newest amazing deal or money making program,
tweaking "squeeze pages", joining and then telling your list about
every PLR (private label rights) e-book that hits the streets then
you are truly working too hard competing with every other
Webmaster trying to sell the same product to the same group of
people. We cannot tell you or show you how to get a few
hundred more people to sign up on your mailing list, or how to
increase the response rate to your list, and we cannot point
out the hottest PLR happening right now because we do not
"actively" sell those products or use email list based marketing methods.
Our focus at Affiliate Company List: Content + traffic + affiliate programs =
consistent online income.
If you have a web site
with good content but you've been spending far too much time and
money trying to make a profit,
then poke around our site to find out what we're doing
that will help you on your affiliate marketing journey. Not sure
where to start? We recommend you start
reading up and learning about affiliate companies and affiliate
marketing through our
affiliate program articles. It's a brand new area however
we'll be adding additional articles over time. Take care wherever
