You Are Going To Fail Unless . . .

Don’t let failure get you down.

Don’t get discouraged when starting affiliate marketing. Usually the first things you try will fail. They are a learning experience. Do not give up.

Thomas Edison famously failed 10,000 times trying to invent a working lightbulb. He looked at it this way, “I learned 10,000 ways how not to do it”.

Think of starting an affiliate site like learning a sport. You are going to be somewhat terrible at the beginning. Whether you try skiing, or golf, or skeet shooting, or playing the violin . . . you are not going to be Olympic quality at the beginning.

There are no naturals in anything. Some of us may learn faster or understand nuances easier. Some of us may progress more quickly than others. But we all have to learn.

When To Find a New Web Host

You can make money online without a web site. However, if you want a sustainable business that delivers regular deposits to your bank account a domain is a necessity.

That’s particularly true for niche and affiliate marketers. They need landing pages for offers. A well put together site trumps simple landing pages. That’s my opinion. Others may have a different take on the subject.

So, having one or more domains means securing a reliable host. HostGator is my choice for solid hosting services.

Most of us sign up with a web host and don’t think about it after that. In an ideal world that would be the way to go. We do not live and work in an ideal world.

I usually do an internal audit of my service providers every couple of months. I do this sometimes sooner. If clicks or sales drop off I check my engine carefully. Q1 of this year is approaching. I’m setting aside a day to perform diagnostics on my sales systems. Routine auditing of my service providers is a necessity. That’s not a nice-to-do-sometime-task.

My livelihood’s at risk here. The downside is losing sales. It’s worse losing long time customers. And it’s difficult to repair damage to my reputation. The upside is keeping things humming. During audit I often make improvements to funnels.

Let’s look at web hosts and how to tell when is it time to make a change. Too many stay with suppliers too long. This can be exceptionally harming to your site and online presence.

Here are ten signs it’s best for you to change your web host. Your site will benefit and your business will prosper.

You Can Make Money Online

“You can make money online.”

Understand that.

Believe it.

Repeat before you fall asleep: “I can make money on the Internet.”

Make that your mantra.

There are many people from all walks of life searching for ways to make more money.  The Internet is full of opportunities. Search for jobs or work at home possibilities and what comes up is usually a lot of hype!

Many offers sell “The Dream”. The Dream is telling you how you can make bazillion bucks while you sleep. Some top earners make millions on the Internet. They show you bank account records and sales records to prove what they do is real. But many selling the dream don’t actually make much money at all.

Now, there are a handful of people – I know many of them – that are Internet millionaires. These folks tell you the truth. They make money selling what they know, often teaching others how to make money online. Many develop products valuable to us working online.

What separates them from you is:

Make More Sales With Long-Form Content

share your story - canstockphoto9867585 Thinking recently about long-form content caused  me to reflect on my blogging history.  I started long ago designing web sites with an expensive and complicted software package. What a headache! A couple of years ago I switched to WordPress and my life got much, much easier.

Using WP still requires solid posts delivering value to your readers. Too many messages come to my inbox that just sell. They don’t offer value. Many don’t make money online because they just sell, sell, sell. They send out emails that sell. Or are designed to sell a product or service. The point is most not making money online ignore lessons easily learned by watching successful Internet entrepreneurs.

Search Engine Strategies

seo canstockphoto5764453 Wonder why you don’t make more money online? Perhaps it has something to do with SEO. Your online earnings are determined by how easy it is to search and find your product/service offer.

Most likely your competitors pay attention to Search Engine Optimization. SEO is simply how to get more traffic directed to your offer by Google, Bing or some other search engine. More in this case means a higher ranking when a user searches using words associated with your product offer.

Search Basics

Let’s simplify SEO. The Internet is basically a method for connecting people with information. Search engines rapidly scan the Internet for information someone seeks.

They do this by sending bits of code called bots that look for what you seek. These bots crawl the web looking for data based on the keywords a person specifies in the search bar of a search engine.

Google is the #1 search engine in use. More than 1.1 billion people use Google each month. Compare that to Bing with 350 million average monthly users. Go to eBizMBA Rank for the list of the top 15 search engines in use today.

Online marketers do not have to know the mechanics of search engines. They just have to know how to use them to benefit a  business or campaign. We tend to make too much of technology making Internet what it is.  Some use that complexity to their advantage selling how-to programs.

A basic key to optimizing your site for search engines is selecting the best keywords associated with your offer. I use a great keyword tool Long Tail Pro. It is inexpensive, easy to learn how to use, and gives me a competitive advantage in some crowded product niches.
