What is High-Yield Investment Program About?

A high yield investment program, according to Wikipedia, is a particular type of investment fraud. Basically, it just means paying old investors with ‘new money’ sucked out of newer initiates to the program. As soon as the program quits or slows down in acquiring new investors (or fresh meat) the system collapses in on itself.

Most of these scams don’t last very long, and unsurprisingly usually emanate from offshore and international areas where it’s hard to track down either the perpetrators or the money.

These are better known to some people as Ponzi Schemes or Pyramid Schemes, and most of these ‘investment opportunities’ are at least one of these things if not both of them.


Warning Signs

The first thing you need to look for when you think you may have come up with a Ponzi scheme is to find their claims about returns. For some reason, they’re almost always insanely, exceedingly high, like 1% per day or something insane like that. Just do the math for a second…1% per day is 365% per year, aka a tripling of the initial investment. This sort of thing almost never happens in real life. Unless your friend growing up was named Steve or Bill and started a computer company in Silicon Valley in the 80s…most people don’t get returns like this on their investments.

Basically, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

The second thing worth looking at is that with such big returns, you might wonder why they’re needing new investors. If your money is tripling every year, you probably don’t want to screw anything about that formula up.

And if gains were that good, you’d better believe that people would be actively looking to get their money involved in a project with those kinds of returns…not vice versa.

Another pretty important thing to think about is that if a company was doing that well, they’d probably have a pretty well thought out plan when it comes to where the money goes and why. This sort of investment plan is called a prospectus, and basically, every legal investment and the financial instrument have one.

The thing is, a lot of these websites literally only have a couple very vague paragraphs written about ‘Forex’ or ‘trading bots’ or Bitcoin fluctuations…and then usually on the same page ask for ‘investments’ of up to ten thousand dollars!

As a writer, I love the idea of writers getting paid extremely well for writing a few murky paragraphs. However, all kidding aside, if you plan to invest with a company, check them out. Read everything there is to read about them, and hope that they have a really good plan for safeguarding and growing your money.


Not having those sorts of things is a red flag for sure.

Finally, there’s one other thing these scammers have up their sleeves; fake reviews. Some of the worst, scummiest websites around have ‘great reviews’ on other websites…because usually the same person or company that owns the investment website also owns the review website!

Sometimes websites pay workers to simply bombard legitimate review sites with bogus reviews, making the legit reviews that tell the truth about the scam to look silly or at the minimum in the minority.

Finally, a lot of these sites only last for a very short time; at some point, they just fold up and turn into ‘’404 Error’’ sites. Maybe if you’re lucky you might catch up with the former owner scuba diving in Thailand or something.


The Real Answer

Seriously, do yourself a favor and be careful when investing online! Don’t just give your money to anyone. Actually, don’t give your money to anyone at all. You know how the Internet really works, right?

People visit websites because they like them. Because there are stories on them that they want to read, or videos on them they want to watch.

What’s usually also on those websites are small advertisements. People aren’t annoyed by them as long as they’re not intrusive, and advertisements have been a part of society now for hundreds of years.

Companies like Google and Amazon take care of their partners, and they actually pay pretty well when it comes to paying affiliates money if they make sales or get traffic from other websites.

The professional term fo this type of work is called ‘’affiliate marketing’’ and it’s really the best way to make money online. I have written the benefits of affiliate marketing and how you could make money by helping others?  Please take the time to read if you are new to affiliate marketing. Sadly, it’ll never generate the excitement that these scam sites do, because of two things:

One, it doesn’t double or triple your initial investment in a week, like those scammer sites, claims to do.

Two, it’s because becoming an efficient and money making affiliate marketer requires a fair amount of work.

But if you can build up a site that people like, even if it’s just a small subset of the population of Earth, you can do well for yourself. Indeed you are able to build your legitimate income on your comfort zone as long as there is connection to wifi. What you need is right education and right platform that able to guide in reaching your goal.

Read this #1 recommendation if you wanted to succeed in your online journey. I have never look back since thenI found this platform.

Work and apply yourself, don’t give your money to scammers!

How to Build A Blog and Make Money With It?

Starting your own blog is quite easy. You don’t need any special skills or knowledge of coding and design because there are platforms like WordPress that makes everything easy for you.

how-to-build-a-blog-and-make-money-with-it


Here’s a step by step guide to building a blog.

1. Choose a software to create and manage your blog.

I personally use WordPress but there are other options too like WIX, Text Pattern, etc. WordPress is the most popular option for bloggers.

2. Find a web hosting service that supports the software you have chosen.

There are free hosting but if you want your blog to look professional then, by all means, go with a paid hosting service. The key to finding the right web host is to find out how easy their system is to use if they have reliable customer support and of course if they offer a wide range of themes and accessories that you need for creating your website.

3. Pick a theme for your blog.

Every blog software installation always has a default theme, but you may or may not like it. If you are looking for something unique, you can choose from the numerous themes available. Some are free, some are premium.

4. Start blogging.

Now that your blog is ready, it’s time to begin blogging. Spend some times to create quality contents.


Guide to Making Money from Blogging

OK so you already have a blog set up and maybe you’ve uploaded a few articles for your site. The next step is to learn how to make money from your blog.

First of all, while many claim that blogging can give you PASSIVE INCOME, it’s not exactly as passive as you’d like to think. In my case, I still work 8 – 10 hours a day on my blog, and when I was starting out, I worked like crazy, logging in over a hundred hours a week.

But what makes this all worth my while is that it pays off well.

Here are the things you need to do to make money from your blog:

1. Write GREAT content. (Contents is King)

2. Turn your visitors into regular readers of your blog. Let them subscribe to your email list.

3. Regularly connect with the people in your list.

4. Give your readers what they want – whether it’s a product or a service – sell to them something they actually want or need. (The more you able to help your reader? The more value you will get in return)

Seems really easy right?

It isn’t. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that it’s really HARD TO DO. And not everyone will succeed at it.


Important Lessons for Blogger Entrepreneurs

Can you actually make money blogging? Definitely. I know a dozen people in my circle who are making a killing at it. There are many ways you can make money from it.

  • You can make money selling products
  • You can make money offering services
  • You can make money helping others
  • Or you can make money selling someone else’s products/services.

The most conventional way of making money from your blog is selling advertising, so you basically allow companies to promote their brand to your audience and they will pay you for it. Or you can form a partnership with a company who will allow you to promote their products and services in exchange for a commission on every sale.

Which one should you pick? This is for you to decide, but remember, the moment you decide to monetize your blog, you’re no longer merely a blogger. You are now an entrepreneur, and so you should treat your blog as a business.

If your goal is to make money, your blog is the way by which you generate leads. Here are lessons to remember before you start blogging to make money:

#1 Don’t Sell Advertising

When you sell ad space, you’ll get paid a pittance. Even the biggest blogs on the Internet are only paid a few thousand dollars per month for advertising space. If you already have a sizeable audience that trusts you, you’ll also be turning them away when they see all those annoying ads on your site. You’re better off endorsing products or selling your own products.

#2 Start with Affiliate Marketing

I always tell anyone who come to me for advice about how to monetize their blog to start with affiliate marketing. It’s an excellent strategy where you endorse someone else’s products or services and you get a commission for every successful referral/sale. With software products, you can make as much as 50% in commission. With tangible products, you can make anywhere from 4-10%.

#3 Promote High-End Products

If you promote products that are priced $10 each, then even you sell 100 of these a month, you’ll only make $100 with a 10% commission. If you pick a $1,000 product, even if you sell only 10 of these a month, you’d still be making $1,000 with a 10% commission rate. That’s why in Affiliate Marketing the is not limit in earning. The sky is the limit.

The effort you exert for selling both products will probably be the same, but the difference is that you will make more money promoting expensive products.

#4 Evolve

As you get better with affiliate marketing, you may eventually want to make your own products so you can get all the profits, not just commissions. That’s usually the path taken by successful Internet marketers and a handful of them are now millionaires.

But while you’re still starting out, learn as much as you can about monetizing your blog by growing your audience, building their trust and giving them the products and services they want.


Final Thoughts

If you want to know which Affiliate Network to try, I fully recommend Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve been with them for a while now and even now that I already have created my own digital products, some of my websites still promote their affiliate products and they continue to give me steady income month after month. What you’ll also like about this network is that for a minimal fee, you get one-on-one coaching and effective lessons to boost your chances of success in affiliate marketing.

What is your thought? I would like to hear from you. Feel free to drop your comment below.

How to Find the Best Affiliate Program?

Choosing the best affiliate program is not just about picking products that are relevant to your website. Many successful internet marketers advise newbies to first find a good niche before they build a website. But if you already have one set up, don’t worry, there are other factors to consider to help you find the right affiliate program that will help you rake in thousands of dollars a month.

But let me just warn you – your success as an Internet marketer does not happen overnight. In my case, it didn’t even happen until a year after I set up my blog. So, you got to be prepared to deal with frustration, disappointment, and empty pockets and never, ever stop moving forward.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about how YOU can find the best affiliate program.

how-to-find-the-best-affiliate-program


What are the Major Affiliate Networks?

The major affiliate networks are those that offer programs for the biggest brands online, many of which are household names. I prefer sticking with programs run by major networks because they have a track record of paying their affiliates reliably and they also have the best products you can promote.

Here’s a list of major affiliate networks I recommend:

  1. Wealthy Affiliate
  2. CJ Affiliate
  3. ShareASale.com
  4. AvantLink.com
  5. Linkshare.com

Affiliate Networks for Digital Products

If you’re leaning towards selling digital products, there are also networks specifically for this. You can promote ebooks, plugins, software, online services and others. The commissions are really high with digital products, some are upwards of 70% but you have to be careful which program you go with because finding good digital products is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Networks I recommend include:

  1. Wealthy Affiliate
  2. Avangate.com
  3. Clickbank
  4. E-Junkie
  5. OneNetworkDirect

CPA Networks

There are also affiliate networks that focus on CPA or cost per action. They run lead generation offers from advertisers. Payouts usually range from $.15 to as much as a hundred dollars or more. But be wary with CPA networks because they have received some bad rap. Do due diligence when choosing a network and pick one that is established and ethical in the way they do business.

Exclusive Affiliate Programs

You’re probably very familiar with Amazon Associates.  Amazon is an independent program and it acts sort of like a central platform for many smaller brands. They use 3rd party tracking software and design their own tracking systems. Before you choose an independent program, make sure you do your research and choose a program owned by a reputable company.


How to Choose an Affiliate Program

Now that you know where you can find affiliate networks and exclusive programs, the next step is to learn how to pick the right program for you. It’s not just about finding a program with popular products, or products that are related to your website. There are other important factors you need to consider as well.

#1 Reputation

Associate yourself with affiliate programs that are reputable and highly ethical. Stay away from companies that use spyware or turns a blind eye to unscrupulous affiliate marketing methods.

#2 Earnings/Commissions

It’s not just about percentages. You should also evaluate the merchant’s conversion rates. They may promise you a commission of 30% for each sale but if the product has a 1% conversion rate then you’ll likely make less than a product with a 15% commission but a conversion rate of 7%.

#3 Website and Support

It’s not just the brand you’re promoting that you should consider. You should also check the website your readers will be taken to when they decide to buy. The website should be clean, professional and well designed. If it looks like it was built by an amateur, then your visitor will likely be discouraged to make a purchase.

Moreover, you should choose an affiliate program that can provide you with the tools that will help make your affiliation more profitable. Tools like informational videos, customized ads, phone order tracking, search boxes, and coupon feed always come in handy.

#4 Acceptance

An important thing you should understand about affiliate programs is that not everyone is accepted. Your application to the program does NOT guarantee that you will be accepted. The best ones can be quite discerning about who they’ll accept, so some newbies with barely any traffic on their website can get rejected.


The Best Affiliate Programs for 2017

I’ve been with Wealthy Affiliate for over years now and I’ve always had a positive experience promoting the products under the various affiliate programs in their network.

One of the things I like about their platform is that it’s easy to use to beginners should not have any problems. They also have tutorials and personalized coaching for those who want to learn the basics or to enhance their marketing skills online. If you’re looking for a reputable and reliable network, I recommend them wholeheartedly.

There are also individual programs you can consider:

Amazon Associates

Amazon has the largest affiliate program of them all, with products from over 1.6 million vendors. Amazon’s mechanism for its affiliate program is very user-friendly making it ideal for non-tech people looking to earn money online.

Commission Junction

CJ Affiliate is an expansive network and most major merchants have offers listed on CJ, so it’s like a one-stop shop for affiliates.

Clickbank

This network is for those who want to promote digital products and it has over 12 thousand vendors. The commission rates are also higher.

LinkShare

LinkShare been around for a long time now. Even though there are already other bigger networks, LinkShare has some distinct features that marketers ought to consider. First of all, it automatically banner ads for a specific product, and allows the rotation of multiple versions using only a single code snippet.


Final Thoughts

I hope that through this guide, you have learned how to find the best affiliate program for you. Don’t forget to take into consideration those factors that have been discussed earlier so all your efforts won’t go to waste.

How to Promote Affiliate Products and Make Money?

Wouldn’t it be nice to earn a hundred dollars a day? If you can have this steady stream of income from your online ventures, then you can quit your day job and be your own boss. Well, what if I tell you it’s possible? With affiliate marketing, the sky’s the limit to how much you can earn from your website.

how-to-promote-affiliate-products-and-make-money


How It Works

If you want to learn how to promote affiliate products and make money, then you first need to familiarize yourself with Affiliate Marketing. This type of marketing is basically used by companies as a way to generate revenue. It’s a blogger’s marketing of a particular product (not their own) with a specific link containing a tracking code. So if you’re promoting Product A, for example, and then someone buys it because of your recommendation, by clicking the affiliate link, then you will be paid a commission on that sale.

Building a Website

Before anything else, you need to know that this is the very same method I used when I first started out. Right now, I’m using Wealthy Affiliate which is a really good network for anyone who’s serious about making money promoting affiliate products.

Step 1: You need to decide what kind of products you want to promote. A good way to start is by thinking about what interests you – your hobbies, passion, etc. Once you’ve figured that out, then it’s time to create a blog. Initially, you’ll have to spend around $50 to pay for your domain name and hosting, but that’s basically all you need for your initial investment.

Step 2: Do your research. You have to know more about the topic/niche that you’re going to enter into. What do people talk about under this niche? What products are popular? Once you’ve gotten a list of products and related information, you can start creating content.

Step 3: Creating content. A crucial requirement for creating content is keyword research. You have to know which keywords to rank for, which keywords your competitors are using (other bloggers) and which keywords are getting a lot of search volume. You’ll then need to incorporate these keywords into your articles.

Step 4: Building traffic. The amount of money you’ll make from affiliate marketing depends largely on how much traffic your website receives. Ideally, you should have at least a thousand visitors a day to make any decent income from affiliate marketing. But if you have just established your blog then this is going to take a while and you’ll need to use certain methods that can help boost your traffic.

One such method is Search Engine Optimization. Neil Patel has explained in detail how you can implement OFF PAGE SEO here. You should also ON PAGE SEO which is still important for ranking your pages. Take a look at Brian Dean’s newbie-friendly guide here.

So let’s assume you’ve implemented a few of these SEO strategies and now you’re getting a good amount of traffic to your website… What’s next?

Promoting Affiliate Products

There are many ways you can promote affiliate products on your website. In fact, you can even promote them without a website, but that’s something I’ll talk about in another post. For now, let’s focus more on website affiliate marketing strategies.

Product Reviews

Your first option is to write product reviews. The key here is to make your reviews as comprehensive as possible and do not be afraid to be honest. In fact, I would fully recommend that you make your review as objective as possible because, frankly, your readers can see through the lies.

You want to build trust, and you want to make them feel that you’re not just doing this for the commission – you actually want to help them. So list down all the good points and bad points of the product, and then write a recommendation. If it’s a great product, say it. If it’s not, then let them know why you think so.

Ebooks

You can write an eBook and offer your readers a great deal of information about your niche. It can be a how-to guide or an informational article about a particular topic, and within that ebook you can then highlight some affiliate products that you think is relevant or best suited to the topic.

Comparisons

If you’re interested to buy a new smartphone then you’ve probably been comparing two or three products like the Samsung S7 Edge and the iPhone 7. So why not make it easier for your readers by providing them a comparison article of your affiliate products? You have to be as in-depth as possible when comparing two products and just like with reviews, you also need to be objective.


Other Ways to Promote Affiliate Products

I can think of a dozen other ways to promote products but I will just focus on a couple of them. First, you can tap social media. This is a tricky one because people can easily get annoyed by marketing tactics implemented on Facebook and Instagram. So a rule of thumb to follow is to make your content fun 80% of the time and keep your promotional messages to just 20% of your posts.

Then, you can also do email marketing. It’s basically sending promotional emails to people in your mailing list. You can offer a freebie to entice people to subscribe to your list.  You can also send out a broadcast every month promoting a great product that you’re using. Tell them why you think it’s great. If they want to be part of your email list then they’ll be more receptive to your suggestions. Just make sure you don’t spam them with offers frequently.


Final Thoughts

If you want to try your luck with affiliate marketing but feel stuck and no idea where to learn? Then I highly recommend you Wealthy Affiliate– The best affiliate training out there.

You can use several ways to promote the products and make a commission for every sale. The key is to find a good affiliate network with a wide range of products, and then test various marketing strategies until you can find one that suits you.

How to Make Money by Helping Others?

Do you want to make money online? Well, what if I tell you that you can actually make money and help other people at the same time? Yes, it’s definitely possible. In this guide, I will reveal to you how I did it.

how-to-make-money-by-helping-others


How Helping Others Translate to Earnings?

When you provide someone the help they need, they are more likely to trust you. You don’t even have to be a subject-matter expert. If it’s something you are passionate about (such as a hobby), you can share your knowledge to others.

For example, if you know how to use WordPress then you can help others understand how to build a website. And so, by establishing your credibility online, your website visitors are more apt to trust you if you promote products or services related to website building, such as a hosting service, software or a plugin.


Step By Step Guide on How to Make Money Helping Others?

Some of the things you will need before you get started are:

  • Your time. At least 2-3 hours per day.
  • Patience. Making money doesn’t happen overnight.
  • Computer and Internet connection. To be able to reach out to people of course!

So if you have all of the above requirements and you’re now ready to get the ball rolling, here’s a guide you can follow:

Step 1: Build Your Blog or Website

Your blog is your virtual presence on the Internet and you can put anything you want here. You have the option to set up a small online store where you can showcase products you want to sell, or you can simply put up a blog where you can write product reviews, comparisons and any useful information.

Having your own website will only cost you very little amount of money around $10-$50 per month depending on what kind of hosting plan you get, and with WordPress, you can setup your website easily.

Step 2: Creating Content

When you already have a hosting service, a domain name and a platform for your site, it’s time to create your content.

Writing is all about communicating with your target audience. So write as you’re talking to a person you know. It’s nothing to be intimidated of. And writing 2-5 articles a week would really help drive more traffic to your website. If you don’t have the time or inclination to write, you can always find freelance writers to create your web content.

Step 3: Perform SEO

Creating great content that help other people find solutions to their problem/concern is a great way to build your website’s value and help you make money but even the best content may take a while to rank in Google. For this reason, you need to do some SEO.

You may have heard that trying to improve your ranking in Google can ruin your chances of getting to the first page but this is not always the case. You just need to follow ethical methods for ranking your pages instead of using shady techniques like link cloaking, paying for links, etc.

Step 4: Making Money

The more helpful guides, reviews and articles you create on your website, the more visitors you will get. If you write quality useful content, then you’ll build your credibility among your readers and they will consider your opinions when making decisions.

For example, if your Gynecomastia-related website gets 1,000 visitors a month, and 20% of your readers consider your content useful, you can then point them to a product (such as an ebook) that can help them get rid of their Gynecomastia.

For every sale of that ebook (which can occur when the reader clicks a promotional link and is led to the company that sells the ebook), you get a commission. This is called Affiliate Marketing.

Not all affiliate marketing work this way. Some will give you a commission for every click even if the visitor doesn’t buy anything from their website

But that’s not the only way you can make money by helping others. As mentioned earlier, you can also sell your own products on your website and direct your readers to your product pages, if they want to buy the product that you mentioned in a tutorial or guide.

How much money you’ll make on the Internet is definitely up to you. I know of people making a few hundred, while I also have friends who are making a few thousand a month. But here’s the thing, if you work hard and smart, you can make this a full time income.


Should You Consider Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is one of the most sought after ways of making money on the Internet. It can provide you with a stable income. But what you can earn depends on how effective you are in turning your audience into buyers. To become an affiliate marketer, you need to:

#1 Find your niche.

#2 Learn as much as you can about this niche so you can help others, or offer solutions to their issues related to the niche.

#3 Look for affiliate programs to promote. You can sign up for affiliate networks like Wealthy Affiliate which has thousands of products that you can choose from.

#4 Read their TOS and payment guidelines before signing up.

#5 Once you’re accepted, place the affiliate links in all your webpages and make sure you have a clear call to action so your readers can easily find it.


Final Thoughts

Aside from joining affiliate marketing and setting up your own online store, there are other ways you can make money online such as by establishing a consultancy service, joining charity organizations, etc.

But in my humble opinion, affiliate marketing is really a great choice for those who want flexibility in their work hours and enjoy interacting with others online to help them solve a problem or assist them in making decisions.

If you want to help others and make money at the same time, I fully recommend affiliate marketing. I hope you found this article benefits you and changing your thought of new internet ventures.

What is So Good About Affiliate Marketing?

If you’ve been dabbling in the Internet marketing scene for awhile now, you’ve probably heard about how you can make money through affiliate marketing. But can a person really earn a decent income online promoting products, services and brands?

what-is-so-good-about-affiliate-marketing


An Overview of Affiliate Marketing

In affiliate marketing, businesses (affiliate merchants) and salespeople (affiliates) work together to generate revenue. Affiliate marketing includes various methods including hosting of particular links and banners on your website or blog.

Writing reviews of the affiliate merchant’s products or simply providing information. You get paid a percentage of a sale whenever someone clicks on the affiliate links on your website and makes a purchase on the affiliate merchant’s website.


Affiliate Marketing Benefits

I’ve been an affiliate marketer for over years now and I’ll share with you the benefits and advantages I’ve had doing it:

#1 You don’t need much to get started. You just need a website to refer potential customers to.

#2 It’s easy to track and analyze your site’s performance with the reports provided by the affiliate program or merchant.

#3 There is no limit to how much you can earn with affiliate marketing. Some people make a hundred dollars a month doing affiliate marketing, while others make tens of thousands of dollars monthly.

#4 There is no need to design or develop products. You will simply promote a brand’s products and you can even pick which ones to market.

#5 You can work as much or as little as you like. You can work an hour a day, or 8 hours a day – it’s really up to you. Take note however that to succeed in affiliate marketing, you have to put in hours working on your website and developing your strategies.

#6 Signing up for a program has no financial risks. When you choose a time tested network or program, you really do not have to worry that you’re getting scammed. A lot of affiliate offers out there do not even cost anything for you to join, while others offer free trial periods.


Can You Really Make Money with It?

Absolutely.

There are programs being offered by major networks like Wealthy Affiliate that are giving bloggers the chance to make hundreds and even thousands of dollars per month. Their annual payments given to affiliates total more than a million dollars and they have been around for more than a decade.

I’ve been using them for quite a while now and I’m steadily making close to $1,000 from one website alone using their affiliate offers.

But of course, it’s not all smooth-sailing. The main issue with this method is that, as with other online money making endeavors, there are self proclaimed gurus who would tell naïve marketers that they can start making money quickly with little to no effort. It’s not a get-rich-quick program and the sooner you understand that, the lesser your frustration will be.

In the end, it’s not really whether or not affiliate marketing is a viable source of income for you, but rather, if you can make it work for you. Here are some tips to help you get started:

#1 Before you create a blog or a website, learn as much as you can about affiliate marketing. Read up on how others became successful.

#2 Pick affiliate products and services with excellent track record and feedback from their customers. You can even buy them so you can evaluate their quality first.

#3 Do due diligence on the programs so you’ll know all about payments, and if the program is a good fit.

#4 Select products that match the niche of your website or where your interests lie.

#5 Remember that content links have higher click through rates than image links.

#6 To win your readers’ trust, disclose that you have an affiliate relationship with the brand you’re promoting.

#7 Market your website. Don’t rely solely on SEO or social media to get more visitors to your site.  Know who your target readers are, where you can find them and how you can get them to visit your website.

#8 Keep track of the performance of your affiliate programs especially if you’re using several.


Various Types of Affiliate Marketing

These programs are now more popular than ever. Why? Because this marketing method works. Merchants perceive affiliate marketing as the opportunity to advertise products at a fraction of the cost of traditional advertising. Affiliates meanwhile see this as an opportunity to make money without the typical start-up costs.

So the question now is, which kind of affiliate marketing will be a good fit for you?

There are different classes of affiliate marketing. The most basic fall under 2 groups: pay per performance (PPP) and pay per click (PPC). There are also tier-level programs

  • Pay for Performance (PPP)

This is the most popular and is also the most profitable for marketers or affiliates. In this kind of program, you’re paid only when your referral results into an action, such as a purchase of the merchant’s product. Commissions usually range from 5% to 20% or more of the price of the product.

  • Pay Per Click (PPC)

If you have a small website then PPC is probably the easiest way for you to make money online. You’re paid whenever a visitor clicks on the banner ads and text ads and visits the merchant’s site, even they do not buy anything from their site. Typical payments (fees) are small, usually less than a dollar per click.


Final Thoughts

Before jumping into Affiliate Marketing, you should first get to know all that is needed for you to succeed in this venture. More importantly, understand that it’s not easy, fast or automatic. You will need a strategy and daily involvement for this to work.

The good news is, if you are willing to work hard on your blog and market it day in and day out, then there is no doubt in my mind that you can make money with affiliate marketing.

The choice is really up to you and what I really like about afiliate marketing is I’m able to choose the niche I’m passion into it. Meaning said that, you’re not only helping people that into your niche but also generating income while doing so.

What Kind of Online Business Can I Start with Little Money?

These days, more and more people are thinking of earning from home by starting an online business. But what if you have little money to start with?

Well, I’m going to tell you now that YES you can start an online business with little money. I’ve done it, and many others have too.

Sure you might be limited to a very strict budget but you actually have many options. If you have the right combination of discipline, skills, work ethic and marketing abilities (which you can learn, BTW), then you have many opportunities in front of you.

what-kind-of-online-business-can-i-start-with-little-money


Here’s a list of online businesses you can start today:

#1 Creating something

If you have a knack for arts and crafts you can make your own products and sell them on Etsy, such as jewelry and toys. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to buy raw materials either because many of these things are actually quite cheap and widely available.

#2 Re-selling

If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t want to create something, then why not re-sell other people’s products instead? Amazon is making millions of dollars a month by becoming the central location where manufacturers can sell their own products. Of course, I’m not saying you compete with Amazon, you can simply create your own e-store where you can sell products like clothes, jewelry, food, and supplements.

This can be done through various channels, including:

  • Drop shipping: Partner with drop-shipping companies who will handle all the order fulfillment for you.
  • Thrift stores: You can find lots of great items at thrift stores, flea markets, and antique shops and resell them on your website. Some garage sales also have hard to find items that you can get for cheap.

#3 Selling your services

On the Internet, a lot of people make a living by selling valuable services. People earn good money by being a personal development coach, writer, digital marketing specialist, web designer, virtual assistant, teacher, and many others. If you have little to no money to start a business, then selling your services is really one of the best ways you can earn online.

Some services will necessitate advanced degrees, while others necessitate just basic knowledge of how it’s done. If you want to choose this kind of business, then make sure you build your brand and reputation so that you’ll be able to grow your client base. You can also promote your services in websites like Elance and Craigslist.

#4 Blogging

In the past blogging was just a way for people to express their thoughts and opinions but today, many are raking in thousands of dollars every month from their blog. So in a way, you should treat it as a business.

There are several ways people can make money from their blog. They can sell advertising space, they can write reviews of certain products/services in exchange for a fee, they can use Adsense, or they can venture into affiliate marketing.


Is Blogging a Good Way to Make Money Online?

I’ve been asked many times if it’s really possible to make money by blogging. So I’m going to be really upfront with you on this – yes you can make money blogging BUT not everyone who has a blog makes money.

So before you go into this “business” you have to ask yourself:

#1 Are you willing to put in a lot of hours working on your blog? When I first started, I’d work on my blog 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s tough work and many people I know gave up eventually.

#2 Do you enjoy writing? These days, you don’t really have to be a good writer to be able to create good content. But you have to be passionate about your blog so you can continue writing day in and day out. Sure, you can hire someone from Fiverr to create articles for you for $5 a pop. But if you have little money to start with, this may not be an option.

Besides, finding a quality writer this cheap is very difficult to do. I doubt if you can find someone who’s willing to spend hours doing research at this rate.

So at the very beginning, you have written your own articles, at least a few times a week.

#3 Do you know how to drive traffic to your website? Granted, such skills can actually be learned. But if you don’t possess these skills right now, then it only means you have to be willing to know as much as you can about stuff like SEO, email marketing, and social media marketing. If you’re not willing to learn, then you may as well seek other business options.


Monetizing Your Blog

As mentioned earlier, there are several ways you can make money from your blog. But once you have lots of good content on your site and a steady stream of traffic, I really recommend you do Affiliate Marketing.

With affiliate marketing, the sky is the limit in terms of how much you can earn. You just need to know how to grow your audience, convert your readers into buyers, and find the right affiliate products to promote.

If you’re new to the idea of making money online, check out My #1 recommendation here. What I love about this platform is that it’s perfect for newbies. They can teach you highly effective methods for driving traffic to your website and they also have tens of thousands of products for you to choose from.

Even if you don’t know a thing about online marketing, their methods will help you every step of the way.


Final Thoughts

If you’ve decided that you have had enough of the corporate environment, then the Internet can provide you with numerous opportunities to start a business. And the best part is, many of these income-earning opportunities require little to no capital.

Starting out is not difficult but to be the success you need more that take action. It actually needs consistency and persistence as well as discipline. If you combine all and stick with all this mentioned, I can assure you will succeed. Dare enough to dream what you want if in your life. What are you waiting for?

What is Affiliate Marketing About and How Does It Work?

There are many ways of making money online. Some people make a lot of money selling products or offering services. And then there are those who are earning thousands of dollars a month through affiliate marketing.

what-is-affiliate-marketing-about-and-how-does-it-work


What is Affiliate Marketing About and How Does It Work?

Affiliate marketing is a form of marketing wherein the affiliate (you) can refer someone to a product or service, and when this person buys the product or service, you will be paid a commission by the company who sells the product or service.

If you’re thinking of becoming an affiliate, there are a lot of online companies who offer affiliate programs. All you need to do is simply sign up for their program and you will be given a unique tracking link. Use this link to recommend the company’s site, and if your readers buy anything, then the company will give you a commission.

Each affiliate program I’ve come across has a set of TOS. Some of them, for example, have a 60-day cookie period, which basically means that if your special link is used by a visitor to get to the site’s sales page and then, instead of buying now, he buys sometime within the next 60 days then you will still be given a commission.


Commonly Asked Questions About Affiliate Marketing

So now that you have a basic understanding of what affiliate marketing is, you probably have some questions. I’ve listed some of the commonly asked questions about this type of marketing, and have answered each one as best as I can:

#1 Are there any risks?

As with everything else, there are always risks. The best way to keep your risks low is by making sure you choose reputable affiliate programs offered by established companies. There are many options out there such as those offered by Wealthy Affiliate which has been existing since 2005 and has a community of more than 800,000 members.

#2 Can I use Adsense and affiliate marketing on my blog?

Absolutely. Using affiliate marketing does not break any Adsense rules. So if you’re not making enough from Adsense, you can supplement it with Affiliate Marketing. Better yet, you can switch to Affiliate marketing completely.

#3 How do I find a product’s affiliate link?

For companies that offer affiliate programs, all you need to do is check their website for information on how to get started with promoting their products. When searching, always see their FAQ page if they have one.

#4 How will I know which products to promote?

You can pick products related to your blog’s niche and then from there, do your research for each product – read up customer reviews, product descriptions etc. If the product is any good, you should be able to find at least a few positive reviews online.

#5 Do I need a website or blog to be able to join affiliate marketing?

Not necessarily. There are other ways to promote products such as through ebooks that you’ve written, through email marketing and even by simply leaving product links when you make comments in forums. But I believe that a blog is the most effective way to promote affiliate products. Besides, you can monetize your blog using other methods too including advertising and PPC.

#6 How much do I need to pay to join an affiliate program?

A quick search online will show you at least dozens of people who are now making 7 figures a year, like Mark Ling who started with affiliate marketing in 1999, Missy Ward, Shawn Collins and a whole lot more.

#7 How much money can I make from it?

There’s no limit to how much money you can make from joining such programs. But your success depends on several factors including the kind of products you’re promoting, your niche, how much traffic your website gets, how well your website converts, how well the sales pages of your affiliate products convert, etc. Some people make $50 a month through Affiliate Marketing but there are also those who make $5,000 a month or more.

#8 How do I get started?

First, you should learn how to create a blog (if you don’t have one yet). Then you need to choose an affiliate program. Once you’ve done that, take a look at the following strategies to promote an affiliate offer successfully:

  • Create a resource page: By putting together a page that contains all the information about the business’ tools and resources, you are creating something that others will find useful and share with their friends.
  • Write product reviews: Before people buy products, they want to know about them first. The key is honesty. You want to win your readers’ trust and so by being honest, you’re doing exactly that.

In every product review, make sure to include the following sections:

  1. A clear and strong headline
  2. Visible links that your readers can click when they decide to buy
  3. A solid recommendation
  4. Your own personal story/ experience using the product
  • Create helpful tutorials: Tutorials are simply among the most effective strategies for getting affiliate sales. It’s not easy to make a tutorial, mind you, but once you’ve experienced the results, you’ll know they’re totally worth it. If you don’t know what a tutorial is, basically, you write a post that explains to people step by step how to accomplish something– and then you highlight a product or service (affiliate offer) within your tutorial.
  • Make comparison posts: Here’s another good strategy for making affiliate sales. This is especially true if you’re comparing two products that are equally popular or in demand. For example, the iPhone 7 and the Samsung 7 Edge. Or the Xbox One and the Playstation 4.

Final Thoughts

In the end, your success as an affiliate marketer really depends on your own dedication and consistency to working on your website and promoting it. It’s not a get-rich-quick method and anyone who thinks that is bound to fail. Affiliate marketing has proven again and again that it’s a solid platform for making money online. But whether or not it will work for you entirely depends on you.

But if you put in efforts I’m sure you will make it. Click here see the proven success stories.

Overall Ranking: 7 out of 10 Star (Above average)


What is Internet Income Intensive?

I came across internet income intensive by Peng Joon during attending National Achiever Congress 2015 held in Singapore.

An 3 Days sold out event which also held in many countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Africa, Australia, Germany, Norway, India, Netherlands, and others.

During the event, he covered his story from student debt to multi-million dollar business through his online empire. After his first online sale and sick of working as an employee, he decided to quit his full-time job and never look back anymore

He explained together with his 2 buddies renting a Campervan, then traveling around the world as well as building his business by just a laptop work with as long as there internet connection.

PengJoon Certificate

He was awarded by ClickBank as 1 of their top vendors and given a certificate as Premier Elite Program. During the event, he shows off his Certificate as a proof on his websites. As what I know many of affiliate marketer have this certificate in their home.

Given those achievements in his career at the young age he then decided to pass on what he knowledge to people. Hence, there is Internet Income Intensive was born, so-called Work from No Home.


What will you learn for this 3 days event?

Day 1 You”ll learn from searching your own niche and buying domain via namecheap.com hosting by www.hostgator.com the last part link to your PayPal account.

PengJoon has created nearly to 600 websites under his control and this sounds incredible. Amazing guys dedicated guys. Below picture is what I dig and found out why he so success along the way.
pengjoonwebsitesprove

How could he build 600 websites? How he do it? Well, He started his first website in a gaming niche as he spent his time playing WarCraft game and found the niche very popular during the period of that time. By the time u read this I guess his websites grew to 1000’s probably.

Trust me if you join here, you could also learn how to built your affiliate website too? Without paying the high price tags. Plus you still can full support from the owner and the excellent team. This will definitely you mind and thanks me later.  After that, I’m glad I never signing up during attending the event. Thanks god

Back to here, So He decided published an Ebook regards to WarCraft and his first sales were sold after several months.

He then decided focus and manipulate what he learned over the years and duplicate those knowledge creating many affiliates sites as much as he can. As well as others niches like forex, gaming and dating.

Those 3 days cover module as listed above. On top of that, you will receive his Harddisk as long as you grab 3 days live event if you subscribe his program on that day itself. The hard disk gave as first come first serve basis as told.

By the way, the event was held in Hard Rock Hotel Singapore. (Seriously?)


PROS vs CONS

Pros:

  • Useful information for beginners
  • Proven Strategies provided during the 3 days event as well as building your first website from domain to marketing to setting up your payment gateway.
  • Access to the lifetime training website after the 3 days live event course

Cons:

  • The price is just too high personally I thought. Are you paying for the location venue-Hard Rock Hotel?
  • No live support whenever you having difficulties (You have to figure out yourself and sometimes wait for a period for those reply (There is no community for doing this) They should improve on this- IMPORTANT
  • There is no trial for this
  • The outdated program, The method is similar since few years back and still the same for current. The internet has transformed rapidly, it works in the past for someone when thousand and thousand people are using the same method, I have doubt on this.
  • Missing information regards to internet marketing strategy.
  • There is up-sell during the event, and this is a BIG no no

My Final Word on Internet Income Intensive program (Work from No Home)

Program Name: Internet Income Intensive
Overall Ranking: 7 out of 10 Star (Above average)
Price: $1K-$1.5K
Owners: PengJoon
Website: www.internetincomeintensive.com

VERDICT: Genuine program, outdated program, and just Overprice + there is still upsells

This is definitely a LEGIT program and PengJoon built his empire from scratch as well as helping more people. However, there is missing information and outdated and I will advise reconsidering before spending your hard earned money.
