My expertise is making things Simple in Baby Steps. I create Stepping Stones to... whatever companies and people want. My current passion is Dragon dictation and computer control software. I do it in person, now working on doing it via the internet. :-)

Hi, Sherry M.
What's Stepping Stones?

Looks interesting, Dragon speech recognition. Affiliate marketers who write articles and post would benefit a lot from having it. Maybe I'll buy me one.

Google software you were/are using and "affiliate program" and see if any of them are using affiliates to sell. Some of them do not but use 'partners' or 'associates'.

I know quickbooks (intuit) uses affiliates (http://quickbooks.intuit.com/product/about_quickbooks/affiliate_program.jsp). You could also google
"financial analyst" "affiliate" and see what shows up.

Of you can propose to sell leads to large companies, probably called partnering.

http://www.exceluser.com/tools/zscore.htm uses affiliates, sells something through affiliates that predicts business failure
http://www.truckinfo.net/trucking/computers-and-software.htm sells through affiliates a lot of software for trucking companies, including something to do with finance reports, if I understand this correctly.
http://classof1.com/homework_answers/financial_accounting/annual_report/ sells online education, including accounting for all kind of businesses, and software that teaches the same.
http://www.360training.com/company/ the same as the above

Here is a program I hope you will take a look at. And a question for you. Why are people so afraid today to take a very small risk (heck no risk right now) in a prelaunch program that can really help them to grow their business by leaps and bounds? Go here now and just take a look around. Just copy and paste the link. Seems like WA won't let it become a clickable link. http://www.zingbizpro.com/?ZBP?=hotbizman

Thank you for your advice, I really appreciate it! Yes I believe you are right, maybe those things are not as important as others are at this stage. I should be concentrating on other things, that's why trying to find a way to make a schedule is SO important to me right now, but I am finding this difficult because I am not sure of "everything" I am to do. So you can see why this would be hard to make =) Also I am trying to figure out how to make back links to my clickbank, amazon etc that don't look like affiliate links and I haven't found a good one so far. Leaving comments on blogs, lens or anywhere else with a link that has clickbank in it or a bunch of letters & numbers is not good. If you have any tips I would appreciate your feed back. Thank you again for taking the time to comment & give your advice it is MUCH appreciated!! TC and wishing you TONS of success!!

As you know I am still learning about internet marketing, I tried to get queenslandfloods.com and australiafloods.com to raise funds for these areas but they were taken, I am in the middle of them.

I am at Moggill, Queensland, we ( my husband Jared and Liam and Jack) were really lucky (blessed) to be on dry land. I have been volunteering at the local church but thought my internet marketing friends and contacts may be able to help more or may be able to guide me to do drive lots of traffic to a site that is for their benefit... even it is for the above sites....

I only want to raise funds for queensland (apparentyl 75% of queensland is affected), who knows it might be the internet marketing community that I am apart of that will help us. I am still learning with internet marketing but certainly know its power.

Hope you can help.
I only got electricity today so please help if you can.

Hi Everyone, could someone experienced steer me in the right direction before I spent too much time in the wrong one? Here are the 4 questions:
1. Well, I did choose a niche, keyword research, got domain with a descent name, set up a template site in a Wordpress. But my website will be based only on 2 specific Amazon books, health section. I know the topic wery well and many people can benefit from it greatly. But it`s only 2 books that cost $21 and $10. The question: is it worth the hassle ? Somebody said you need a product with a commission at least $20. And should you have lots of products, or one -two is ok as well?
2. Is it safe to give your bank account to affiliate programs? Many don`t have a Paypal unfortunaly.
3. I found, for some products you can Google a lot of different affiliate programs. How to choose a good one among them?
4.It is advised here to set up Aweber for automated email marketing. But if you have a couple of fixed products, there not going to be any new ones or whatsoever for a newsletter. Also I feel I`m not up to writing a new content for people every week. Also it looks like it costs $20 monthly! Can I skip that part of marketing?

Thank you!

No. Don't put quotation marks. If you do, it gives you all the sites that have the keywords, no matter the order, or if they are on the same page.

You type without quotes, it gives the real number of competing websites.

I thought a pen name with vizio in it would be more convincing to Google. Those were the first im anything I've done. Overall, big failures. Or, better said, tests that show how not to do things.

Going crazy trying to figure out the Google formula for page rank. They made it very complicated, not that I have ever really cared. Dusan, is SiteBuildIt2.0 as good as they claim it to be?I don't like everything under one roof, but their traffic finding claims are intriguing.
Reply
DABK Premium
Don't know about sitebuildit2.0
Page Rank. The Page in Page Rank is the last name of one of the founders of Google.

I don't know what it meant at first, but right now it is a lot less important than other things. I think of it as a tie breaker.

It seems so easy in the guide, but things aren't working out that way for me for the moment. Care to share any wisdom as to how to get lenses and articles to rank highly?

Hi Dusan. I stopped by here again this morning, knowing I will learn something from a question you respond to that is from someone else. And, sure enough !
This time it is the reminder to check how much advertisers pay in Google---choose the keyword that advertisers are paying more for. (or at least be sure to include that keyword....don't want to overlook a hidden gem advertisers may not have jumped on yet).
And, how about it, it's the end of the month already. Already ! Yesterday was my two-monthaversary at WA. Hooray for finding WA !
and Hooray for you----you are always here with great ideas, thoughtful and right-on-target responses to people, and you are a great buddy. So, here are 2 end-of-the-month golds to you for being you.

Hi and thanks alot for the comment on my last post about keywords to promote wealthy affiliate. I am still trying to get it ingrained in my head how I should be thinking about this. It will click one of these days though.
Thanks again for the info I am going to go do some more research.
Reply
DABK Premium
It's simple, isn't it. Pick a low-traffic keyword. But not easy. There are many, some don't work.

The main thing, start with google keyword tool or the keyword tool here at wa.

The one here at WA rates them by article power or ppc power. But it sometimes malfunctions (so double check with Google).

Google also gives you how much advertisers pay for a word.

If you have 2 keywords, both with 2,500 monthly searches, and for one advertisers pay $.20 and for one they pay $1.34, you'd go with the 2nd one as most of the time, the higher advertisers pay, the more buyers there are, and, therefore, you can get.

4 questions. I deleted a conversation I did not mean to delete.
Here's the answer to the 4 questions
All wealthy affiliate stuff works better with mozilla firefox browsers. When I type in a name in 'browse wa spaces' I get a user name (sometimes more than one, if I don't type in the whole user name and the beginning is popular, say Jeffrey). I do not know why it's not working for you.

When I find a tutorial I find useful, I hit bookmark this page, and the program remembers my bookmarks, lists them for me on the right side of the screen, so I can go revisit them.

I don't know about the pink, never used that.

When you were in the wa space, writing me this message, on the right, you had your activity (people you're buddies with, what they did). But only the last few. If you want to see all of them, from the time you joined, you look under notifications. There's more stuff there, like people adding new resources.

Hi, do we have to buy the domain name from one of the sites selling them or we can use one of our own.Does WA register domain name or not? I have a name in my mind and i want to register that one.Do i still need to go to godaddy or 1&1 and tell them that i want to register one of my own name? I thought that WA offers web hosting and domain register should come with web hosting.Please clarify.

After you buy them, you have to point them to Wealthy Affiliate, if you want to host them at wealthy affiliates. The name server tab at godaddy.com does that. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/hosting/setup/help/nameservers

Start with the Action Plan. Then search WA for every concept, term you come across in the Action Plan that you don't know well. There are a lot of short tutorials on pretty much everything.

The Action Plan gives you about a week to do each lesson. If you finish sooner, really search WA for tutorials and the forums for discussions. Search for things related to what you're doing in the Action Plan, till you know well the concepts you're dealing with then.

If you're advanced in some areas, practice and go to Search WA for more advanced tips. The forum too.

Enjoy og takk for the 3 words.

Step in the right direction. Publish 5 articles for the next week, all of them on related subjects, all of them linking to your site through "succesful profiles" see how much of a boost that gives you. Might be enough to be #1 without quotes?
Last week the site you look at got a whopping 84 hits. Monday I made changes to the loos and a couple of the articles, that bumped me to the 2nd place for one of my keywords. Between the 2: I got 890 hits this week, I'll get about 1100 by Sunday night. I need to get to #1 position and then I move to the next 3 keywords.

They all promise never to forget their humble beginnings, but when they start making a not-so-erratic income...
By the way, and to repeat myself, also to iterate and reiterate too: if no one's complaining about your fees, you're charging too little.
When you quote them your fees (and by the way, you must take half upfront), you must make them wonder where's the wheelbarrow you're carrying your... ovaries in to have the nerve to have such a high fee.

Another by the way, if you can quote large fees with a straight face, calm tone and demeanor, they're going to take you seriously. Pay your fees too.

In case you did not notice, I'm of the opinion that it's best to make a lot of money for your quality efforts.

You have right now 4 products. Site setup, seo research, web content, blogging.

Site setup + web content
site setup+ seo research + web content
site setup + seo research + bogging

You can add services. Web content can be broken up in 2 parts: you research stuff for them, they write it up any way they want
you do the research and write it up for them
Seo research - could be what you already have and you add another facet: keeping them updated on niches (a small monthly fee, they get new hot niches with keyword info), which you can bundle up with content (you send them 12 niches a year, they like 3, you write them up content for 3). Of course, you can set up their sites too.
Let's do it and be clear:
for a fee, they're your member, as members they get 3 new niches a month (with all the keywords, why they are hot, etc.). For the same fee, you set up up to 3 sites a year and write the content. You could also charge differently, but the amounts would be lower. Actually, you should present both versions. Like this:
3 niches + keywords $1
site setup $1
content $1
3 niches + site setup + content $2.25 (you save$.75!).

Thanks for the blog comment, Dusan. And for the confidence boost. I started my business in November, and I guess I'm in a transitional place right now. I worked so hard to get real clients (instead of the slave-wage-paying outsourcers on Odesk), and I'm still feeling my way as I go. I like your idea of bundling services in a more concrete way. Any suggestions on what bundle of services would be most attractive to people looking on my website?
Reply
maureenhannan Premium
I like it, Dusan. Wanna be a subcontractor? Lots to think about. Oh, and you know my Emergency Girl people? They have a chance to get more heavily into ghost-blogging. They want me to be their "primary" on that. I have to think over my rates. I like ghost-blogging. I also like the idea of bundling services as my own boss. You're very good at this, you know. When I start making a not-so-erratic income, I'll contract with you to be my business advisor. Well, I'll try.... You'll decline, however, I fear, because you'll be busy keeping up with your IM finance/mortgage empire.

Hmmm, wheelbarrow...ovaries. I think I might have to commission a sketch of that scene to hang in the living room of my new place. Er, on second thought--maybe that's best left to a guided imagery process whenever I'm doing business development. Sometimes the things you know in your head take a little time to act upon. I've definitely "grown a pair" (in a most feminine way, that is) in the last year. Much further to go...especially in the area of you're addressing. But when I think of where I've been...not so bad at all.
Maybe one of these days I'll tell you a little more about my personal 180. Thanks, Dusan.

It depends how good you're at picking products to promote. It depends how focused you are. It is possible to do the research in one day, set up a blog or squidoo or website the next, get indexed by google the next, write a couple of articles and publish them the next. Ezinearticles.com, the best according to me and many, takes 4-10 days to publish. Once they publish, if you wrote the right kind of article, you're going to have visitors. If your site (blog, lens) have the right words, some visitors buy. So, 14 days the first time, 7 days after. Except there are glitches. You pick the wrong product, Google doesn't index you for 8 days, etc. But mostly it depends on you.
Now, to make loads of money, it takes longer and more work (which once you know what you do, you can outsource, so you're back to relatively easy. It's like walking, it's easy once you know how to do it. You can even run shortly after you learn how to market.)

I'm stubborn. I read the Action Plan, then promptly ignored it.
There's an element of luck involved, too. The first person to land on your site is in desperate need of exactly what you're promoting. Then he's followed by several others just like that.
The usual way, you get a handful to even 200 visitors before you make a penny.
The trick is to have lots and lots of traffic. I'm still working on that. I want at least 10,000 highly interested visitors a day per site. I am so damn far it's not even funny.
Oh, yeah, it depends heavily on the keywords you select, the type of traffic you send. The better matchmaker you are, the more money you make.

Thanks for rating. I don't know article writers here. The only place I know for that is elance.com.

I'm about to launch a website that's meant for google adsense only. It seems if you put together a 6-page site that shows up in the top ten, and you have google adsense, you can make some money without doing much afterwards. If it interests you, I can send you some info.
Now I'm waiting for google to index my pages. I have several other squidoo lenses (my practice oness). The first 2 google indexed in 7 days, the next 3 in 1 day, the last practice lense it has not indexed and it's been there for over a month.
I've got tired of practice so I have not tried to get it indexed.
Potpiegirl, here at WA has a lot of ideas that I find useful. She has a blog too with some useful videos. Check her out.
