Affiliate marketing is a simple but powerful idea.
There are thousands of companies all over the world that need help marketing their products online. And they will pay you substantial commissions to help them do that.
Some will transfer your earnings directly to your bank account, either directly if you're domestic or by wire transfer if you're in another country and some will pay straight into your PayPal account. No matter what, the payments side is totally in place. Affiliate marketing has been around for long enough to be mature in this area.
I can teach you how to become an internet marketing affiliate.
But is it easy?
I've been an enthusiastic user of Thrive Themes and Plugins for over two years and wouldn't be without them.
They are the first, and usually the only set of business themes and plugins I install on a new WordPress site.
The 10 WordPress business website themes that you have access to as soon as you install Thrive are the best conversion optimized WordPress themes available.
This article will take a quick look at each of them.
Broadly speaking, you have 3 alternatives when choosing an editor for your WordPress site.
They are the WordPress Classic Editor, the WordPress block (Gutenberg) editor or a 3rd party drag and drop editor such as my recommended solution, Thrive Architect from Thrive Themes and Plugins. But let's look at each of these WordPress editor software solutions in turn.
A huge number of business websites use WordPress as their platform. And for good reason.
It's stable, it's reliable and has a relatively short learning curve.
But its strength lies in the themes and plugins that you can add.
A top WordPress business theme can really make your website stand out. And if it's a conversion optimized theme, then your major challenge, that of attracting visitors has been given an early boost.
Are you sick of fighting all the other affiliate marketers for low-value scraps?
What if I told you you could create your own online training course and have a stream of people ready to buy it for $200?
People who'll thank you for the information you've provided and praise you for your professional presentation.
Thrive Apprentice is the platform you'll use to create and present your high quality online course, but that's only part of the formula.
The complete formula takes the form M + CC + M, where CC stands for Course Creation and the two M's each stand for Marketing. Marketing before you launch, so that you get a flood of buyers on launch and Marketing after the launch, so that you continue to sell and profit day after day.
I am an affiliate for Thrive Themes as well as an enthusiastic user. This means that if you purchase through my link, I get a small commission. This makes no difference to the cost to you, but helps me to maintain this website.
In the previous post Internet Marketing: Registering Your Domain Name we looked at using a domain name host.
A domain name host like Namecheap holds all of the details of your new domain name and most importantly, translates the human-readable address domainname.com into the actual digital address where your website is stored. This is referred to as your DNS (Domain Name Server).
Domain Name Hosts will frequently offer web hosting as well.
Just as a good street address is important to a bricks and mortar business, a good domain name is important to an online business.
But what makes a good domain name?
Well, first of all, it has to reflect your business. When a prospective visitor sees it, they should be in no doubt as to what your business is about.
In addition, these are the other desirable characteristics:
OK, so in the last post Internet Marketing: Where to Start Part 1 we covered the considerations involved in selecting a niche.
But you probably want to know exactly HOW to go about it.
Well, it's all about:
There, you knew I'd get technical sooner or later, didn't you?
You see, the thing you want to do with your website is to rank highly in the search engines for particular keywords related to your niche.
Which means you need to find keywords (and note that while we call them "words" we actually mean phrases, so that, for example, "exercise routines for seniors" is a "keyword") that have a good number of searches but not so much competition.
But how do we find out?
Easy. You use the free Jaaxy keyword tool. JAAXY CLICK HERE.
Here's what you do:
If you are starting any sort of business, whether it's bricks and mortar or an online business, the first question you have to ask yourself is "What is my business all about?"
In the online world, it's called choosing your niche and, although it's very important, bear in mind that it may be just the first of many online businesses that you are going to own.
Unlike the bricks and mortar world, it costs very little to start an online business so the chances are that you will eventually own several.
This of course has the advantage that each one only needs to earn a small amount for it to all add up to a decent income. And if just one of them takes off, you can do very well indeed.
