Postby benzayyy » Wed, 23 Apr 2008 12:21 pm

Hi all,

im interested in making money online, but im totally new in this field. I'd like to know whthr affiliate marketing really works? Cos the last time i tried affiliate marketing, I paid for the website n all, but it was asking for more n more payment, to get full access & traffic etc. After all those i was quite hesitant & i stopped using it. & what is the most profitable kind of thing to do online?

can you write articles?

set up a blog and write articles that you are good with. put google adsense and you can start earning. you dont need to pay any money at all

but dont expect to earn a living through online. needs a lot of time and hardword to achieve that

Twit :???: #-o :lol:

Your nick seems to say it all. How are you going to help anybody when you can't even write a decent post. Do you really believe anybody would ask for your help when you are too lazy to write properly?

As the majority of our posters are educated and write accordingly, it would do you well to try to do the same. Otherwise people here are not going to take you seriously. Capise?

Not unfriendly, just realistic.

Or you can post simple one-line posts on forums and add your hyperlinked business in the signature block as a way of getting free advertising. Especially if you've been a registered poster for 3 years an never made a post but now with a new company, 4 post in two days! :roll:

2nd that. As far as I can work out most online websites and blogs that rely on affiliate marketing and blogs for income bring in at most (and these are the successful ones) $30k a year. The money comes (eventually) from the products and spin-offs that happen as a result of this.

as with all business models, there are pros and cons of affiliate marketing. But instead of thinking how to make money, why not think of what value you can give to people?

Because ultimately, business is all about value, so true are successful ones.

In affiliate marketing, have you actually reviewed or use the products yourself ? If you haven't then... do you think it is right to recommend products that you dun even know works ?

Look at the most successful affiliate marketers or marketers who make alot from affiliate campaigns, you will realize that they safe guard their list and not promote anyhow any products in the market.

So, what value are you giving the marketplace ?

another route of course is... why not you run and create your own products, thereafter, recruit affiliates to help you market.

think of keywords... as an affiliate, you are competing with thousands of affiliates probably optimizing or competing for that sale. Instead however, as product owners, you dun have to worry about that.

Starting online is never easy, but you must have a clear path of what you want to do... to build a REAL sustainable business as compared to a one time wonder.
