It might be totally familiar to some people who will be reading this article. I decided however that it was time to, hopefully, PREVENT A LOT OF NEWCOMERS in the online business (marketing, sales, ebooks etc.) FROM MAKING the same MISTAKES I made. Don't get freightend now!! Keep in mind that when you are persistant.
YOU WILL SUCCEED!!
Therefore, what you will discover in this article, are TIPS which will help you to stay away from spending an awful lot of time and money with zero results.It will also put you on the right track to personal satisfaction in whichever field online. The first thing you should always keep in mind when
you start, THINK BEFORE YOU ACT AND AFTER YOU HAVE DONE THE THINKING, THINK AGAIN!! Sounds strange I know, it will get clear to you when you continue reading. Included in this thinking process should be your input timewise. To create a descent income you will need time and patience, when you would invest let's say 10 hours a week it will certainly take you a few years before real success comes your way (Obviously this depends on how you measure real succes). This remark has probably scared off the easy money seekers but it is best to be honest.
There is a major number of players out there who are capable of talking money out of your pocket with golden promises and easy money stories. Don't act on it.
IF IT SEEMS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT WILL BE TO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!
When you are ready to start, start investigating what you need. Join affiliate programs where they will provide you with a website. Now,this might get a bit complicated!! Everybody wants you to join their programm and when you do join, then you will be overwhelmed with all the information which they will throw at you. Affiliate programms are a great source of income, but you should always take your time to look further in to the programm before you join. How long do they exist, ask for names of affilates whom you can contact, ask any possible question you can think of at your future sponsor (Upline), and join forums to seek info. Use a searchengine and just search for home business forums. Here you can join any forum you want.
After you have joined the affiliateprogramm of your choice don't get in to spending money before you know what you are actually doing. AGAIN, THINK BEFORE YOU ACT. They will provide you with all sorts of tools to promote your business, try the free one's first to get to grips with the actual business you're in.
Searchengines. We all know about them and we probably al know what they can mean towards getting visitors to your site. There is only one problem, just take any searchengine and do a search. For example: home business. I just did and there where 2.380.000.000 entries. There is NO WAY you will be on the first three pages within a long time. Obviously you can use Google ads or Overture to buy searchword targeted advertisement, there is only a small problem there. You probably will get visitors, but will they join your programm or buy your products?? The chances are small because you need to warm up your prospects first. With other words start PRESELLING!!
Get a descent linkprogramm. There are several available for free on the web. Just search for free linkmanager on any searchengine. These programs will help you to track your links and see if other sites are still linking back to your site. They'll even create the link pages for you, to put on your site.To get more inside information on how to start your linking campaign I decided to provide you with a FREE COPY OF MAKE YOUR LINKS WORK. You can download it in the Resource Box.
Better start learning the basics of HTML. There will be many new things coming your way, and one of them is the earlier mentioned websites. Since
your future income is totally depending on referrals and new sign ups (members in your downline) your affiliateprogramm will most likely provide you with promotional tools like banners, buttons, links, webpages and more and more. Now the trick of these tools is that they have your personal code
written into it. You better check every single time if it is your referral code. Because the only way to track the referrer when someone signes up, or buys
a product is through this code. Imagine, you promoting your website like crazy with al these tools, and in the mean time it might have someone else
his code inside!! YOUR LOSE, THEIR GAIN.
Didn't I mention earlier that you want to make sure you join a descent affiliate programm and that their are plenty of storytellers out there? This is
just one possible scenario you want to watch out for. Therefore, get at least a basic understanding of HTML coding.
PLAN AHEAD EVERY TIME, AND I MEAN EVERY TIME, stay focused when you step behind your computer to work towards your future. I mentioned the word preselling before. Every succesful person on the internet knows what this means. As soon as you get on the net, you will be pulled in to a certain direction. You won't notice but let's say you where to search for something, you will start on one page and before you know it, you will be reading material or you'll be visiting webpages with no connection anymore to what you where searching for. that's called preselling. The best internetguru's probably think fifty steps ahead of you and start pulling you in from the beginning. That is why you want to plan ahead over and over again.
DON'T LET OTHERS WAIST YOUR VALUABLE TIME.
This article is just a brief summary of the first things you want to keep in mind when you decide to start with affiliate programms. The previous
summary can obviously also be usefull as an example for any other online business adventure. Since there are so many challenges on your personal
road to succes, it is impossible for me to mention them all in one article. I will be putting the next article up in a few weeks time. In the meantime you
can always read this article back on my website which you can find here: www.pocketmoremoney.com Thank you for the time it has taken you to
read the above.
