Finding An Expired Domain For Your Internet Business

You’ve maybe heard that there are such things as “expired domains” but you’re not sure how buying an expired domain can help you. So what is an expired domain?

Put simply, an expired domain is a domain that hasn’t been renewed.

There could be a number of different reasons for this—maybe the owner forgot to renew the domain, there’s a possibility the domain registrar didn’t remind the owner (or used an out of date e-mail address to tell them), it’s quite likely the domain seemed like “a good idea at the time” but the owner never actually put any content on the site and just let it sit in cyberspace. There are lots of different reasons why a domain name has expired.

So how can you make money from expired domains?

Firstly, it’s generally considered that the older a domain name is, the more “important” it is. By definition, a domain name that has expired is at least a year old, which means that it is automatically older than purchasing a brand new domain.

Next, if the domain was used, there may be existing links to the site. It is likely to be indexed in the search engines as well.

The icing on the cake is if it actually has a Google PageRank.

Yes, you read that right. Some expired domains have a PageRank and traffic.

Trouble is, you won’t be the only person on the planet who is hunting for expired domains. The very best expired domains are purchased the very second that they are put on the market.

Which means that if you are thinking about buying one or more expired domains either for your own use or to “fix up” and sell on to others, you’ll need to work fast.

The easiest way to do this is to use a service that will allow you to search for domains that are soon to expire. This will give you an advantage and allows you to snap up the domains you want as soon as they’re released back into the pool of available domains.

Joke about some monkey business…

If you have difficulty understanding the current world financial situation, the following should help…

Once upon a time in a village in India, a man announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10.

The villagers seeing there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them.

The man bought thousands at $10, but, as the supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their efforts. The man further announced that he would now buy at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to $25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now act as buyer, on his behalf.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers, “Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when he returns from the city, you can sell them back to him for $50.”

The villagers squeezed together their savings and bought all the monkeys.

Then they never saw the man or his assistant again, only monkeys everywhere! Welcome to WALL STREET.

How NOT to market in recession times

I caught myself by surprise to have written a possible part 2, but I thought it is necessary for me to relate an ugly incident I went through a few weeks ago. You can find part 1 at the end of this post.

I was invited by a personal friend to attend a seminar preview for an upcoming training event on business leadership and corporate management. Normal attendees have to pay $20 for the preview.

Halfway through the preview, a man from the audience stood up and said, “This is not what I’ve expected. It is printed on your ad, ‘How to profit from the coming recession’ and you’re telling me all this about how to be a successful manager and leadership skills. I’m only an employee working for a company…” He said something like that along this line.

The presenter replied, “That’s right. It is only by developing yourself and improving your personal performance in your environment that you can begin to charge a higher premium for your wages…”…along this line of argument.

But the exchange got more unpleasant and the man got angrier. Soon after, the man and a few others were shouting for a refund and more would walk out because of the negative energy prevailing in the room.

It was so bad, I haven’t seen a seminar conducted with such devastating result. Even I get angry myself thinking over it.

Upon mutual feedback with the friend, these are what I discover:

1) The ‘recession’ headline: No doubt you have seen such headlines all over the place, in e-mails, newspapers etc. for all kinds of programs. I can tell you it is unoriginal, it sucks, too overused and gives a “jump on bandwagon” impression. Seth Godin is right: All marketers are liars.

2) The impact of the headline: Ted Nicholas quoted the late, great and iconic copywriter John Caples as having said, “73% of all buying decisions are made at the point of the headline.” That also means there is 73% probability you’re going to attract a certain type of crowd depending on what the headline says. Do you know what profile of your crowd is?

3) The crowd: The bigger the crowd you’re trying to attract, the more ‘hazy’ its profile is, because at the end you’re not going to fulfill every, Tom, Dick and Harry’s needs for sure. Every prospect has certain inarticulate expectations on how to pull through the recession; they just need to find the best answers they can resonate with. The ‘problem’ with recession concerns is they usually start at a base level, like “how to save money”. I’ve seen for myself the presenter had a tough time selling a high-concept solution to match anyone’s base-level expectations.

I only have one suggestion for remedy and it’s “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The previous ad was quite okay and if it did well, the copywriter should not lump it with irrelevant correlations. Just focus on explaining the details of the program or product, promoting the benefits of attending the program or buying a product, and print out testimonials based on user experience of the program/product.

One good ad solution for a ‘live’ program that may sell better than the slickest copy ever written is to create a download link to a PDF file which outlines the full timetable/program synopsis, including lunch break and tea break times, so the prospects know “what you see is what you get”.

Have you seen or heard of classic case studies where an ad can run for years with hardly a change or an edit and still covert sales like hot cakes? These ads are sharp enough to articulate the inarticulate and pre-empt the questions inside the prospects’ heads, e.g.:

* Have you ever wondered how to resolve the inter-departmental frictions and rivalries within your company?

* Do you want to know your colleagues more like a friend, and understand their strengths and weaknesses so you can get them to perform optimally in future business projects and ultimately make your office an ADDICTIVE place to work AND play in?

Tweaks are necessary to make the ad read like it appeals to the taste of the current generation of the crowd, but should not be radical enough to change the essence of the message, especially the headline.

The friend had said, “The reason we changed our ad is to make it look fresh to attract a different crowd. We don’t want the public to know it’s the same thing again.”

That’s a wrong perspective. It is ALWAYS a different crowd if an old ad can still convert profitably, because different people resonate with various ad proposals at different times. An ad may not catch their eyes in May 2008, but you never know they really need to learn more about it in January 2009.

Put it this way: you don’t need skimpily-clad girls to dance around a Lamborghini to sell it. The Lamborghini has been around since 1963 and it has already spoken for itself. Fans of Lamborghini will claw their way for it sooner or later. It is still flashy, exclusive and turbo yesterday, today and forever, but don’t start thumping down Ferrari and get into all kinds of avoidable trouble.

The same principle applies to your AdWords campaign. Say if you’re selling antique ladies’ watches and there’s a particular model that looks good on most grandmothers’ wrists, your ad would read along the lines of “The perfect watch gift for your grandmother” all the way to your sales page where it says aloud, “The perfect watch gift for your grandmother”, word for word. It may sound dumb and simple, but not misleading prospects one bit in every way possible could be the best strategy for cutting PPC losses and increasing profits.

Stay consistent and congruent to your marketing message and people will take you for who you are. Perhaps that’s the essence of leadership after all.

Secrets Of A Blog That Will Be Successful

In many cases, a person who is setting up a new blog can get carried away with all of the fancy graphics and design tricks that they can easily apply to a page, and completely overlook some basic fundamentals that will help them get a better position with the search engines. bloggers can reap a number of benefits when they study and employ the various search engine optimization tactics and principles that are critical to good search engine ranking.

In this day and age when there are over a trillion pages of web content spread across the vast internet, it is more important than ever to make sure that bloggers and blog designers take special pains to build their blogs and code them in such a way that the blog is fully search engine optimized. There are a number of good SEO practices that every webmaster who cares about gaining a good search engine ranking for a blog should be sure to implement consistently.

A blog that has been built with the clear understanding of search engine optimization principles will enjoy better listings in the search engine results pages, commonly called SERPs. Even established blogs that already have a steady flow of web traffic could still improve the organic search engine traffic they receive if they make an all-out effort to maximize their SEO efforts.

Designing a blog to make the most of what the search engines are looking for is a fairly simple process, although it does require a good bit of attention to detail if your traffic building campaign is to be successful. Primarily, the task boils down to properly coding the various elements of the web page with current coding protocol in specific HTML tags, while at the same time making the most of the semantic value of the web content of the blog.

SEO starts right at the top of your blog with the title tag and this is thought to be extremely important to a blogs search engine optimization. It is essential that each page on a blog has a unique and interesting title and the title should always include the specific keywords that are being targeted by that page of web content. While you need your keywords in the title to keep the search engine spiders happy, do not neglect the human reader as it is the title that they see in the search results and your wording is what decides whether they will click on your link or the next.

Another important factor in SEO is how search engines identify your keywords by looking at what words are within the header tags. The H1 tags are used at the top of the page to enclose the headline of the post. The keywords within the H1 tags are seen as extra important by the search engines as are any words within H2 tags although as you have probably guessed, not as important as the words within H1 tags.

There are many other elements of search engine optimization that come to bear on a blog and much more can be learned by seeking out the vast number of SEO and webmaster resources that are available online. The foundation of all good optimization starts with good keyword research and a clear understanding of the type of visitors the webmaster is trying to attract and what keyword phrases they search for.

A good understanding of SEO techniques is as important to the future of a blog as having a good internet marketing strategy and keyword tools available to you.

Top 3 Ways To Become A Super Affiliate Overnight

The ideal world of affiliate marketing does not require having your own website, dealing with customers, refunds, product development and maintenance. This is one of the easiest ways of launching into an online business from home and earning more profits.

Assuming you are already into an affiliate program, what would be the next thing you would want to do?

Double, or even quadruple, your commissions, right?

How do you do that?

Here are some powerful tips on how to boost your online affiliate program commissions overnight.

1. Know the best program and products to promote. Obviously, you would want to promote a program that will enable you to achieve the greatest profits in the shortest possible time.

There are several factors to consider in selecting such a program. Choose the ones that have a generous commission structure. Have products that fit in with your target audience. And one that has a strong track record of paying their affiliate’s quickly and easily. If you cannot seem to make money on your investments, drop that program and keep looking for better ones.

There are millions of affiliate programs online which gives you a reason to be picky. You may want to select the best to avoid losing your advertising dollars.

Write short e-books or free reports to send out from your site. There is a great possibility that you are competing with other affiliates that are promoting the same program. If you start writing short reports related to the product you are promoting, you will be able to distinguish yourself from the other affiliates.

In the reports, provide some valuable information for free. If possible, add some recommendations about the products. With e-books, you get credibility.

Customers will see that in you and they will be enticed to try out what you are offering.

2. Collect and save the email addresses of those who download your free e-books. It is a known fact that people do not buy on the first solicitation. You may want to send out your message more than six times to make a sale.

This is the simple reason why you should collect the contact information of those who downloaded your reports and e-books. You can make follow-ups to these contacts and remind them to make a purchase from you.

Get the contact information of a prospect before sending them to the vendor’s website. Keep in mind that you are providing free advertisement for the product owners. You get paid only when you make a sale. If you send prospects directly to the vendors, chances are they would be lost to you forever.

But when you collect their names, you can always send other marketing messages to them to be able to earn an ongoing commission instead of just a one-time sale only.

Publish an e-zine or online newsletter. It is always best to recommend a product to someone you know than to sell to a stranger. This is the purpose behind publishing your own newsletter. This also allows you to develop a relationship based on trust with your subscribers.

This strategy is a delicate balance between providing useful information with a sales pitch. If you continue to write informative editorials you will be able to build a sense of reciprocity in your readers that may lead them to support you by buying your products.

3. Ask for higher than normal commission from merchants. If you are already successful with a particular promotion, you should try and approach the merchant and negotiate a percentage commission for your sales.

If the merchant is clever, he/she will likely grant your request rather than lose a valuable asset in you. Keep in mind that you are a zero-risk investment to your merchant; so do not be shy about requesting for an addition in your commissions. Just try to be reasonable about it.

Write strong Pay Per Click ads. PPC is the most effective means of advertising online. As an affiliate, you can make a small income just by managing Pay Per Click campaigns such as Overture and Google AdWords. Then you should try and monitor them to see which ads are more effective and which ones to dispose of.

Try out these strategies and see the difference it can make to your commission checks in the shortest of time.

Can You Earn Money With The One Week Marketing Method?

One Week Marketing

Yeah, you’ve heard it all before. Someone you’ve never heard of says they earned some stupidly big amount of money. Without investing any money or from their spare room in ten minutes a day.

Your conscious mind says “no way is that true”.

But you don’t listen and you keep reading. Sucked in by the sales copy that probably cost the site owner thousands of dollars and was worth it, right down to the last cent.

Because you’ve already opened your wallet. Poised to give away your credit card number because you’ve now convinced yourself that “this one will really work”.

Which means the question you should be asking is whether or not you can earn those thousands of dollars that they promise?

The answer is a definite “maybe”.

But you’re best off if you have a plan to follow. In an ideal world, one that has been worked out and fine tuned by someone who’s been in your position.

The good news is that this has been done for you.

The bad news is that you won’t make thousands of dollars a day using this method. But deep down you probably didn’t believe that hype anyway.

This set of reports, called the One Week Marketing method talks you through the exact complete process of earning real dollars online. Likely only one or two sales a week for starters—and if you’re like most people who try to make money online, you’d be thrilled to even make one sale in a week.

So just what is inside the One Week Marketing method?

* A 65-page guide to the system.
* A brief action plan you can flip through when your memory is a bit foggy
* A set of mind maps to help you visualize everything
* The full email transcripts that took a guy called Nick from being in the “always lost money online” club through to earning nice money. He asks all the “dumb” questions you and everyone else on the planet asks that are actually the key to understanding exactly what to do to earn money at last.

The best way to use free niche articles

One problem bloggers have is that of always coming up with fresh content. In the early days this is very easy as you have lots to say and the enthusiasm of starting a new blog. After a while you need to dig deeper to find content articles for your blog.

Free niche articles are a good way to find more content but you must use them correctly to get the best from them.

Where to find free niche articles

You will do this by joining in with the online community in the internet marketing field. Join forums and memberships sites and become part of the community. You will find lots of forum members who give away plr articles and ebooks as a way of promoting their paid for products. If they are not giving them away they will be very cheap indeed.

What to do with PLR articles.

Once you have a plr article you must rewrite it so that it becomes unique content. The search engines will not rank duplicate content very highly and you will waste your time. To rewrite a plr article you must change the first and last paragraphs and change one words per sentence in the rest of the article. Usually this will make your new article unique in the eyes of google and the other search engines.

A second use for these articles is to combine 2 or 3 of them into one really strong article. This type of hybrid article can be good enough for almost any use. I find articles that are quite similar in topic to use this way. This isn't a waste because you didn't pay for them in the first place.

Using keywords in free niche articles

One further step I do is to ensure that I put in a good keyword in the title. I also place this a couple of times in the content and as a keyword tag for the blog post.

Cash and Pay-per-click Affiliate Programs!

Millions are paying to get a ride on the Information Super Highway everyday. Now, it is widely known that the Internet is an accessible resource of many income-generating activities. Whether you belong to a private sales company or you are just interested in internet marketing, PPC affiliate programs can be a powerful venue to make money from the Internet. A partnership with an affiliate merchant is a win-win situation for the merchant and the affiliate: sales are soaring because of exposure and traffic while the affiliate is earning good cash.

To make things much simpler: the affiliate merchant provides a strip of advertisement and pays you when someone clicks on the ad’s link. You can get a commission of $0.10 to $0.30 for every click, but it sometimes it can go higher depending on your merchant affiliate. Sometimes, merchants require a quota ($1.4 for every 1000 clicks). Plus, you can get discounts from your merchant affiliates if you happen to like their products too. You can just kick back and relax while your website is generating cash. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?

What is PCC Affiliate Program?

PPC means pay-per-click, wherein you get in partnership with an affiliate company that literally pays you for every click. There are actually two types of PCC affiliate programs – those who pay a commission based on the number of clicks and the other based on the sales. The pay-per-click scheme is much more popular than pay-per-lead because the affiliate gets paid by just clicking the ad, regardless of whether the visitor buys from the affiliate merchant or not. Plus the chances of a visitor purchasing something from the affiliate merchant are not really that high.

In choosing an affiliate program, read the fine print carefully – some pay-per-click programs get the ratio of the number of people who went to your site and the actual people who clicked on the ad. If you have a heavily targeted website, this can hurt your earnings.

How do I start?

Of course, you need to have a website. Depending on your target audience, choose the best affiliate merchant that is most related to your topic. For example, your website is about Carpentry then you can search for affiliate programs that sell tools used in carpentry.

However, if you don’t have a website, that’s not a problem. You can put up a content site about absolutely anything under the sun like ‘Taking Care of Dogs’ or ‘Decorating your own Home.’ But wait, its not over yet. We are faced by a dilemma – on how to increase traffic! You first need to get internet surfers to see your website, then the ad.

How do I increase my traffic?

First, design your website in such a way that it will attract internet users. A user-friendly site is always recommended so that the customers will know which one to click. Take into consideration the look and feel of the advertisement. If it doesn’t look professional, most likely, users will just ignore it. Place the ad on a strategic location – one where users can see it clearly. Visibility of the ad is always important.

Another way is to post a link to your website in forums, web communities, ezine articles or bulletin boards. However, this method requires a lot of effort – that defeats your purpose of getting easy money in the first place! The key is to do something once and forget about it. It’s like putting your business on autopilot. To maintain you pay-per-click business, be sure to track down site activity, so you are updated on how much money you are making.

Can I make more money?

If you think you can go to the next level, you can try a two-tier affiliate program. This gives you the power to recruit affiliates. Other than the money you get from your website’s clicks, you will also get a percentage of what your affiliate generates. Some companies give 30% to a soaring 50% commission on all referral sales.

Remember, you should be able to manage and monitor your affiliate program. If you can recruit more affiliates, then you can get paid more without even moving a finger! Choose affiliates that can most likely attract more internet users and bring more traffic. You just have to know the right people.

 

Get More Buyers and Make More Money

Get More Buyers

You may not have heard, but Michael Rasmussen is going to be launching a product that will expose the lie that “the money is in the list.” I had a chance to get a review copy of his product and here is the breakdown.

The main components of the Get More Buyers course are the 90-minute video and the Battle Plan PDF report. Then you’ve also got the 3 deluxe videos for those who upgrade to the deluxe version of the course.

Each part of the course serves a unique purpose, and together they form the most comprehensive course on this subject available today.

Speaking of the course, let’s dive right in. We’ll start off with the main component is the “Get More Buyers” video. This is the heart of the course. It teaches you the main concepts and ideas that make this strategy so effective. You’ll learn all my best strategies for packing your list with tons of eager buyers, and the best part is that most of those strategies are all automated.

The video is roughly 90 minutes long, and makes up the bulk of the course. The scope of it is to show you step by step how to create a massive buyer’s list and not just a subscriber list. The money is not just in the list, but in the list of buyers. Most of the information here is not on theory, but on experience so feeding the buyer’s list is the key to what is included in this video. It comes down to fueling your business growth. The video talks about how to choose a low cost product, how to test the product in a key location to see if it will sell and using this unique tactic to start building your list of buyers. You will also learn how to effectively use bonuses to get new buyers who are eager to buy.

He also talks about what you should do once you get more buyers. Start by selling an entry level product and then offer the customer an advanced version of the product and move on to other advanced products that may include a possible training course and so on.

With this method, you are migrating your buyer to each level. The highest level will have the smallest list, but these people who remain in your funnel will be buyers you can depend on when you recommend a product. Subscribers are only worth something when they become buyers. Add true buyers directly to your list. You will create a list for each level of buyer/subscriber by using an automated list resource.

Component 2 is the battle plan. This is a 144-page battle plan report that you can download in PDF format. This report was designed to give you a step-by-step action plan for each of the ten strategies. Download your preview of the report.

A lot of courses leave you hanging with actual action plans, but not this one. This report will walk you through each step and give examples of how to implement each one.

The third component is the advanced video 1, which Michael Rasmussen calls “Your Buyer Factory”. In this 27-minute video, you’ll learn how to put together a killer reseller offer. This is where you create a program that allows people to sell your products for 100% commissions, but you get to add the buyers to your list. It’s a true win/win situation that can make you a LOT of money in the end.

The fourth component is the advanced video 2, which is called “The Buyers Virus”. This 35-minute video will teach you all the best strategies for building a buyer list using nothing but short, viral reports. This is one of my favorite strategies, and it will add tens of thousands of buyers to your list. Most people can easily see themselves creating short reports. It’s the long e-books that intimidate most newbies.

Advanced video 3, is a 27-minute video is all about continuity, which is my favorite word in the Internet marketing language! Lots of marketing teachers talk about how important a monthly recurring program is, but nobody teaches how to build a buyer list using this strategy. This proved to be a big eye opener for me.

What I liked about this course

I was blown away by the quality of the course. This goes WAY beyond what else is out there in this price range. I liked how he revealed the same secrets that he used to make money by getting more buyers on his list. His system challenges you to get beyond affiliate marketing to own your product and get affiliates to market the product for you instead, which gives you a better bottom line. He also explained the idea and concept of using OTO, which is “one time offer,” that your customer will have an option to purchase and how to get them to buy. He went through each strategy one at a time and explained exactly what to do to implement them. Michael gives specific examples of how he used certain strategies to make money. He gave really good tips on how to keep your buyers motivated and interested. The way the video is set up, you can listen to different portions of the videos and skip the ones you don’t want to listen to.

Minus Point

I thought that Michael was long winded in these videos. He talked about things that newbies could not relate to. He talked really fast and there was so much information to process, you would have to listen to them more than once. He put a lot of emphasis on creating funnels, price points and migrating buyers, which seemed to be overwhelming if you are not familiar with this system, so it will be a learning curve for new internet marketers. His system works better when you have created your own product, but he did give examples of how you can use private label rights and bundle them into one product. I notice that he did not cover anything about promoting with article marketing or social marketing. His main component talks more about the generality of getting more buyers except for four hidden secrets that he exposed, which can make you tons of money. These secrets alone make his product well worth getting.

Learn Why Internet Marketing Videos Are So Powerful

Being successful at internet/affiliate marketing is the Shangri-la of a huge number of people on the web.

Fed up with boring jobs, long commute times, lifetime mortgage repayments – the list goes on – people see the internet as akin to a Gold Rush. Big paychecks to be made online if only you know where to look.

We’ve all heard the stories about those who’ve struck it rich on the internet. And we’re not talking about savvy business people, but average Joe’s and even teenagers who’ve followed a program and seen real results for their work. True, there are the internet entrepreneurs who come up with an original idea, run with it and create a product that suddenly everyone wants – internet marketing of the highest order. But as in any line of business, those entrepreneurs are both not very common as well as being the kind of people willing to take risks.

The majority of people don’t like taking big risks or have ingenious ideas and even if they do, don’t know how to run with their idea. Like the prospectors of old, most people rush off to the store, buy some inadequate tools and go prospecting for internet riches without knowing the first thing about what they’re doing.

Is it any wonder that most people fail at making any real income online. Knowing the correct tools to use and where to internet wealth can be found is a huge step in the right direction.

The provision of information products is a booming industry, and a huge portion of it deals with informing people how to make money online. But, as you’ll learn if you buy a number of these products, a lot of information is regurgitated as well as being out of date in the fast-changing world of niche marketing. Besides, ebooks can be an effort to wade through.

As an alternative, Internet marketing Video tutorials are easy on the eye and they show real examples of techniques and tips in action. You are, literally, watching over the shoulder of someone who’s demonstrating a procedure as it happens. And, if the penny doesn’t drop first time, you can replay the video as frequently as you like till the penny does drop.

It appears that most people are visual in nature which is why they respond more to visual stimuli rather than the printed word. Why do you think shop windows use animated displays to get your attention rather than big printed banners? Moving images attract the eye engage the mind. That’s why watching internet marketing videos is so powerful. And it’s a technique you’ll learn from fast. A mentor’s personality comes across much more strongly through video and audio than it ever can from a book. So does enthusiasm, which can empower you to succeed when relying on printed words just drains you.

There are now some great internet marketing video training products available to help you in your goal of succeeding online. I’d urge you to think about these instead of simply reading an ebook. The advantages to you are enormous.

Discover how you can gain instant access to a goldmine of powerful Internet Marketing video tutorials, that take you by the hand and show you step-by-step how to fast-track your way to online financial success AND you’ll also get Master Resell Rights to these videos so you can sell them and keep all the profits!…

Secret Affiliate Code 2 Review

Secret Affiliate Code 2

Secret Affiliate Code 2 goes gold and I am looking forward to it with anticipation. Do you want to know why? Well, I was able to purchase the Secret Affiliate Code first edition and if this new one is anything like it or better, I can’t wait to see it.

You see, it is because of Secret Affiliate Code first edition, that I am able to participate in some big product launch and make thousands of dollars. It even compliments some of the same methods that I had just discovered myself, but did not know how to implement. It is more detailed and gave step-by-step instructions on how to get to the front page of Google and compete with this Internet marketing gurus who are raking in the big bucks on launch day.

I am able to learn more about Craig Beckta and realize he is an ordinary guy like I am. I had to actually print the 158-page guide that has so much information, it took me a week to go through it extensively and utilize some of the tactics that really work.

Most of the time when someone has a product launch, they will try to get some of the well-known gurus on board because these gurus have a big opt-in list. My list is not so big. I have to rely on the Secret Affiliate Code’s instructions to guide me through its own unique list-building strategy. I learned that you can make money without a list even though a subscriber list is more important.

I also figure out how to grow my list little by little and how to use the free resources online and let them work for me. I am no longer intimidated by these big Internet marketers because I have an amazing ammunition called the Secret Affiliate Code.

I know that Secret Affiliate Code 2 will be dynamite so I e-mailed Craig Beckta and told him what I thought about his first edition and told him that I really feel comfortable marketing this new product launch since I already know that he will give something similar or better.

When I got a copy of the Secret Affiliate Code 2, I am certainly blown away. Not only is it good, but it is certainly better.

What I prefer about this new product is that it has a 121-page e-book and mini guides that accompany the e-book. When you read the main e-book guide, and you get stuck on anything, you would go to the guide and refer to it because it explains each item in the main guide within the accompanying mini-guides. So the guide is similar to a text book that you would buy in college with an accompanying solution book that would give you the answers. The mini-guides are like a professor expounding on the facts that you would find challenging.

This would definitely be one of the best methods of learning for any newbie or anyone who wants to really make a living with Internet marketing.

In addition, that is not even all. Craig Beckta has certainly over-delivered this time. He has included videos to make it a thrilling learning experience. Video marketing has been one of the most popular means of promotion online these days because people want to see exactly how something is done than trying to figure it out all by themselves. If you are like me, then that is true also for you. I like visual interaction and that is what Craig Beckta does. He takes the material in the guides and puts them in a video presentation to open up your understanding even more.

I am not allowed to reveal what is in the videos, but one thing I can tell you is that it shows you how to make more money as an affiliate marketer even in this bad economy.

After saying all that, I have one negative component of the Secret Affiliate Code 2 that you should know about. I am not going to short change you because I would not want anyone to do that to me. Craig may not like me telling you this, but not everyone who buys the Secret Affiliate Code 2 will make a substantial amount of money because some of the tactics are advanced and will take time to see results. For sure, nothing good will ever happen if you don’t do anything to solve your financial bottom line.

Make More Money Online With A Virtual Real Estate Empire

If you’re looking for alternative ways to make money online, because you: 1) need more money. 2) just lost your job (or simply don’t like your current job) 3) are wandering “what can high school dropouts do”, etc. then the internet is a great place to make more money and many are doing it by building virtual real estate empires online.

Virtual real estate empires, or VRE’s, are websites that are built for one purpose: to invite traffic and, ultimately, to sell ad space, which will then bring you a profit. Some people are taking that one website and turning it into many websites, which means they are making even more money. The best part is that they don’t have to do a thing. Just by having the website accessible, and by driving traffic to that site by posting (your own or PLR) articles on a specific subject, or anything else people will search for, they are making great money with very little work. You simply post a website, write the articles, and wait for people to visit. What could be easier than that?

Choose Your Market

In order to build a virtual real estate empire online, you must choose a niche. This is the subject matter your articles will discuss. This can include anything from your favorite hobby, your favorite sport, your favorite cooking recipes, or anything else that comes to mind. The niche should be something that others will search for.

Top Paying Adsense Keyword vs Good Paying Adsense Keyword

Google AdSense is a very popular easy way to earn Passive Residual Income from the World Wide Web. There has been many research and studies by internet marketers to maximize their AdSense earnings and you will learn the simplest way to maximize your income with the tips below which include a Free download of what has been discussed.

Most AdSense publishers search high and low for a list of high paying keywords for their website. You will find these questions in forums all the time. This is because AdSense publishers know that the formula to High AdSense income are based on 3 main things:

1. Traffic – The higher page impressions, the more likely you will receive clicks on your ads.
2. Click Through Rate (CTR) – The higher the click through rate, the more clicks to your website you receive.
3. Value of Clicks or High Paying Clicks = Keyword – The higher the value of clicks, the more income you will receive.

Thus the formula is: Earning = Traffic x CTR x Click Value

However, the era of high paying AdSense clicks of $30 – $50 are over. Even if you do find these high paying clicks such as Debt, Refinance and Insurance, you will realize that you will have difficulty getting traffic as these niches have been conquered by the BIG BOYS.

Not that it is impossible, but it will take a lot of time effort and dedication to achieve some results.
