  1. QUESTION:

First off, what are the governmental requirements to launch a website and start marketing for other business online in the UK? Can i not just register a personal website and start affiiating?

  2. QUESTION:
    How can I get affiliate marketing to work for me?
    I know how affiliate marketing works but I'm a little confused about how to get people to my site. Lets say for example that I want my website to sell golf products (through affiliates). I've heard "content is king" but how do I write about golf to put on my site? I think I may be missing the point and any help would be good. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      To get high organic search engine rankings, you have to add plenty of content on your website with targeted keywords. So add loads of golf-related articles to your website, the search engines count the number of targeted keywords and relevent links on your site, and rank your site based on relevance. The more golf-related keywords and links you have on your site you will achieve higher search engine rankings which should equal more traffic which should equal more sales.

      For example, you can add anchor links on your site specifying certain brands. For example say you have a products review page, a link with the anchor text ' Buy Tiger Shark Pro 888 18 set golf clubs' (i just made up pro 888 as a fictional model) would be more relevent than 'Buy these clubs'. This is keyword targeting, and will drive targeted traffic to your site through the search engines when someones types into the search engines 'I want to buy 18 set Tiger Shark Pro 888 clubs', you will receive higher search engine rankings than the standard 'buy these clubs' link.

      Add plenty of keywords to your website of the exact phrases people might type into search engines when searching for the products you're selling.

      The next step to achieving high rankings is to build links. build plenty of inbound links by submitting your website to good quality web directories with high alexa scores, many are free. Submit your site to at least 400 directories by hand (don't use automated software because you might get penalised) just stick to 10 a day. But the best way is to ask golf related websites (preferably not ones selling the same products as you) already with high google rankings to link to your site with a reciprocal link from your site. Doing this will increase your google search engine rankings.

      More targeted keywords + More links = Higher search engine rankings = More traffic = More Sales

      If you got some money to spend, you can drive traffic to your site with Pay-Per-Click such as Google Adwords, or Facebook Advertising. Although you will get traffic instantaneously, it can be very expensive and maybe not worth it unless you do a bit of research and educate yourself on PPC.

      Try to have at least 10 pages on your website, and you want visitors to stay as long as possible on your site to be successful. You could add articles like 'beginner's guide to starting golf', 'How to improve your swing', 'The best golf courses in the UK', 'nightmare golf holidays - a personal experience' etc, etc. Then you could have a Products Review site with recommended golf clubs to buy etc etc. Add videos etc etc. Content is King. And throughout your site you could chuck in your affiliate links here and there but not bombard the page with them because the search engines might penalize this. And add a few affiliate linked banners.

      It takes several months for the search engines to fully index your site, so add content submit to search engines and directories and just be patient. Once you're receiving 100s of visitors a day, you should start making some sales!

      If you do not want to participate in amazon then try clickbank.com they pay directly to your bank account. First paycheck will be paid through cheque and then following months you can get the money deposited directly to your account.

  9. QUESTION:
    A job that does nothing so I can focus on my internet business at work?
    I work at an Online Marketing agency, in the UK. I like it, but I hate having to work for some else. Plus everyone chats a lot at work when I really need to concentrate to get the job done.

    I have been trying to make my fortune online for a while. Tried selling things on eBay, affiliate marketing through Google AdWords, selling information products on ebay, and finally, creating an information website. I have much hope for my latest venture.

    I often work 1-2 hours on my side projects during week days before or after work. I am dedicated, and I believe it will eventually bring me and my family a lot of freedom.

    Currently, I am thinking of quitting my job. It is causing me a lot of stress due to the fact I am asked to do a lot of work, while the working environment is totally disruptive with everyone constantly talking.

    So, coming to my question, what job can I do that requires very little work? so I can bring in my laptop and concentrate on making my money online.
    Thank you for everyone that's answered!

    To clarify, the reason I want to do this is to pay the rent and bills while developing my online business.

    I am not looking to NOT do my work at a job. I am simply looking for a job that requires little work.

We're looking for any sort of work, farming, cleaning, Nanny, working in a pub, something we can do between the end april and july. Any sujestions?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a number of ways to make money online, some are more effective than others and you need to be careful of scams because there are a lot of them out there. A few I have found that are legit and not scams like clixsense, mturk, spinsuccess, and gdi. I don't know if any of them are good in the UK but it is worth looking into

      Clixsense is a site that pays you for clicking on ads, you have to stay on the ad for 30 seconds and then your account is credited. For a regular member you don't get many ads and and they only pay .01 an ad. I personally never saw a point in going to premium which costs a ten dollars.

      http://www.clixsense.com

      MechanicalTurk has a whole range of stuff from writing articles, testing software, data entry, and simple things like click the best result for a search. The pay varies depending on what you are doing any where from .01 to 10.00. It does take a bit of time but most things a quite easy. There are some things you need to qualify for and those are generally the better paying jobs so it is worth doing. You are essentially a freelancer and depending how much time and effort you put into it can give you a bit of extra cash.

      https://www.mturk.com

      Spin success is an affiliate marketing program. It does cost 29.95 to join but you get 20.00 credited to your account so you are only really paying 9.95. If you are willing to put in a bit of work then it will pay for itself.

      http://www.spinsuccess.com/affiliates/id

      GDI is my personal favorite. It is another affiliate marketing service but for me it is much easier to use and turns better results. You get paid by getting other people to join, but you get paid for not only the person you get to join but the people they get to join also up to 5 people down the list every month. You also get a 100.00 bonus for every 5 people you get in a week so the potential rewards can be quite high. Everyone is very keen to help people get started because when you are making money so are all the people in whats called as your upline. So every one wants to help, it is pretty easy to setup and once you get into it can be kind of fun.

  13. QUESTION:
    How can I get a large amount of traffic to my site which converts to sales, I am marketing affiliate products?
    I have used classified ads, PPC, blogs, only to have traffix trikle in and no sales. I need to find a way to get tens of thousands of potential targeted leads to my sites and have a decent portion convert to sales. Any suggestions that are relatively inexpensive (within 0/ month marketing budget)?

    • ANSWER:
      Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it's easier said than done.

      You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

      Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

      1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

      2. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article " How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site " http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

      3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

      If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

      4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as 0 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

      5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

      Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

      6. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more - that's additional traffic that you get for FREE!

      Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
      CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

      7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

      Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
      Google Base http://base.google.com
      Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/...

      Craigslist.com
      Craigslist.com is the 8th top site in the USA and the 24th top site in the world. Go there and sign up for an account today. If your goal is to drive Internet traffic and you're using Craigslist it is absolutely crutial that you use what is called a "buffer blog". Simply put, they have a rule: No links to sites with affiliate links. So, what you can do is create an article on an article site. Link your Craigslist.com classified ad to your article, then link the article to your website. Just be sure that your article isn't too long. 300-350 words is good enough.

      88Db.com
      88Db.com is a classified ads site that is based in Asia. Once you log onto the site you'll see that you have to pick a country to list under. You can pick Hong Kong, India or China. Just set up your account and start adding your classified ads. Make sure you use their picture uploader and put up some nice pics. Note that only jpg files are accepted here. This website is rarely talked about on the Internet and has really yielded some excellent results for driving traffic.

  21. QUESTION:
    How do I use a foreign stock market like the one in HongKong?
    Instead of going through a US or UK broker?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a few ways to invest in foreign markets. The direct approach is to buy stocks in those countries. However, buying shares that trade on exchanges outside of your home country or that of your broker can be harder than trading domestic shares. If you are looking to invest in a foreign company listed on a foreign exchange, the first thing to do is to contact your brokerage firm and see whether it provides such a service. If it does, the firm will need to contact a market maker or an affiliate firm located in the country in which you want to buy the shares. However, even if the firm provides this service, it may not be able to gain access to the specific shares you want. In that case, the alternative would be to try to set up a brokerage account with a firm in that foreign country.

      If you find a way to invest in other countries, you must also understand the risks associated with foreign investment. First of all, timely and accurate information about foreign companies is not available to the same degree as it is in the U.S. Another concern is that the regulations in foreign countries can affect both your investments and any accounts set up in that country. For example, there may be restrictions on your ability to transfer funds from your foreign account to one in your home country, or your funds may be taxed whenever you try to take them home. Being informed allows you to carefully weigh the risks and benefits of investing in a particular foreign market.

    • ANSWER:
      Internet Marketing requires you to sale other people s products or services, or if you have decided to create your own product, sale your own. But whether you are selling your own or others, we all have one thing in common getting traffic to our websites. But what is most important is not just getting traffic, but targeted traffic. Thus, How Do you or I get traffic to our sites?

      In my early beginnings on the Internet, I tried many methods of getting traffic to my website. I was definitely a newbie in training some of the software or services that I bought did me no good. I found, at times, that it was truly difficult to decipher which was a good deal and which was not who was honest, and who was not but I guess it goes with the Internet territory and you must always do your due diligence.

      However, I have found three methods of getting traffic to my site or affiliate product or service Buying it PPC, such as Google, Mamma, Overture, linking or the hard one Search Engine Optimization.

      Pay-Per-Click

      If you have the money to invest in Google or some of the other search engines pay-per-click programs you can make some money. Here you create an ad or ads relevant to your affiliate program, and place a bid on the keywords you select. This takes time, energy, persistence and money and research. Also, I would advise that you read your affiliate programs rules, as well as, the rules of Google Adwords before jumping into the pay-per-click arena. You usually have to put aff after your ad or something similar to that it s dependent upon the affiliate program you are in. The idea with pay-per-click is that you pay only when the individual clicks on your ad.

      Linking

      Linking can be by either paid or unpaid methods. The paid methods are paying for your link to be shown in Ezines, newsletters or on other peoples sites. It can be costly, so the best suggestion that I can give you is to research the Ezines, newsletters and or other people sites that you want to link with before buying. In most cases, if ezines are accepting advertising, you know they must have at least 500+ subscribers, or I should say, be sure that they have at least 500+ subscribers before advertising in their ezine. Know what you are getting before you put your money down and as they always say, be sure to read the fine print.

      The unpaid method is through article creation. This requires hard work on your part, but the return will be seen in the long term. Keep in mind, your articles should be relevant and address the subject matter of your site and products. Content reigns king on the Internet and if it is relevant to their needs they will eventually come to read.

      Search Engine Optimization

      Search Engine Optimization is basically the optimization of your web pages so that you can get a decent ranking by the search engines, and thus, to pull people to your website by it relevance. This is a difficult chore and needs to continually be worked at and within the ethics of the Search Engines.

      To conclude, getting targeted people to your site is really part of growing your business. And Internet marketing well, it s not for the faint-hearted, but for the determined, persistent individual who wants to really make a living on-line. Thus, if you really want to make a living on-line don t give up and promote.

      Hope this helps.

      The usual procedure at our SU would be taking delivery of publications and then place them wherever appropriate. Each SU is an autonomous body so if you want a wide coverage going through the NUS would gain you access to all SU's that are affiliated, who would then be able to distribute your mag throughout their Uni or college.

      There are some Uni's or colleges that don't have SU's or aren't affiliated, so keep that in mind.

      p.s. You could arrange to have your mag distributed during Fresher's week or at other events.

  26. QUESTION:
    Can you give me some help giving my website some edge?
    I want to set up a website where people donate money for me to buy my own house. 'Get a job' you say. Well I have and I word damned hard, and have done for many years but have still found it extremely hard to get on the property ladder. In the UK it gets harder every month. Without telling you much of my life story I have had very little money and some hard times - 'yeah we all have' I know but I'm trying to do something about it. More than anything I want my own house, and in order to do this I want to set up a website where people can donate to my cause. 'All been done before' you say. I know this, and I need a catch. A good one. Preferably one that doesnt involve selling my body etc! Well its a thought at the moment but any ideas welcome.

    • ANSWER:
      To ask people to donate money to you, they will surely ask for a reason. You should provide some useful contents, information, products or services for other to buy it instead.

      If you are serious about earning money through internet, I would rather you consider of setting up your own internet business instead. The investment cost is also rather low compared to others.

      There are a lot of internet business models you could consider of (e.g. buying and selling domain names, affiliate marketing, auctions, selling digital or physical products, creating paid newsletter or websites and many more).

      With a proper system setup and correct web marketing strategies, you could start to earn some passive income.

It will also tell you what are the reason behind each step, how you could go about doing it and where you could get the necessary resources free or at a low price.

  27. QUESTION:
    Are all the communications networks in america, canada and australia regional?
    It might sound like a weird question, well in the uk we have phone companies and tv networks and etc which cover the whole country, is it like that in the above countries or do you have more regional networks? In a way our system in the uk is easily dominated by certain companies and monopolised sadly, so for example you have bt with almost all the telephone lines.

    • ANSWER:
      Our communications are mostly national however they have regional affiliates. By that I mean that, for example, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is a national TV network however with 5 time zones they are unable to show the same programming across the country at the same time. The 6 pm news in Halifax would be the 1 pm news in Vancouver. What they do is they have regional versions of the programming so that the evening news is on at the same time across the country with regional stories featured along with national and international news. The same thing holds true with entertainment programing. Its all national but it's on at an appropriate time locally and they have certain local programing on that would be of interest to the community it serves.

      That is not to say that there are not regional networks as well as independent stations but it all depends upon where you live and what the market can sustain.

  28. QUESTION:
    In terms of Affiliate Marketing, do internet forums do well in attracting traffic?
    Or would another type of site be more profitable?

    • ANSWER:
      NO -- because:

      1 - many forum owners and administrators don't like people spamming their forum and putting in links; or merely using their forum to advertise their affiliate programs

      2 - you can get traffic, but not a lot of traffic. You will have to spam a lot of forums with your affiliate links to be able to get a sizeable traffic

      Getting traffic should be a multi-pronged approach, and not just using 1 strategy. Examples include

      Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as 0 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to market a new book?
    I've a good friend who annoyed with the 6% offers by literary agents is hoping to self-publish his book. He has a set budget and most of this will go on the printing process leaving just a minimum for advertising. What possible means does he have to market the book? And does anyone have any decent contacts or websites for authors within the UK / London?
    Thanks so much guys!
    Marcy x

    • ANSWER:
      The first book you publish generally doesn't get much money. The idea is that you get your foot in the door. Then if the book sells well, you get better offers for any books you write after.
      Once established as a 'published author', he can then market himself much easier than going by a self published author.
      He should consider selling via Amazon.com. They allow self publishing authors to see via the Net there. http://www.booksurge.com is affiliated with Amazon.com.
      He should also have a web site, with a domain name (they're only or so a year), and market the domain name easily with email signatures, links on threads, etc.
      I've added some links for self published book marketing tips I found on the Web.

    Two qualified chartered accountants seeking to establish a financial services business serving the temporary recruitment industry, working from a base in the South West of England.

    A business plan has been prepared including profitability and cash flow projections covering the next five years. The plan calls for total equity investment in the region of 125k generating returns greater than 100% by the end of the second year, in what remains a growing market. In addition, the business requires seed capital or back to back finance secured by the debts of the portfolio.

Exit paths are well established for a business of this type e.g. listing or trade sale.

  34. QUESTION:
    Is there a gap in the market for a magazine?
    Quite simple really, after Cosmo girl UK has not been on the shelfs for a while i thought of making my very own 'mag'. I might be only 15 but i have lots of ideas and done lots of research. I don't want it to be over popular but do you think it would be a hit? Just around school and thing?

    • ANSWER:
      The problem is not that there is a gap, the problem is that most of the people in that age bracket who read this magazine are now getting that same information online.

      That is why they don't print it anymore. They are in the business of making a profit, and when the profit margins fall significantly they axe the magazine. It's happening all over the place, not just teen magazines. (see my blog link below and count how many popular magazines were discontinued this year)

      If you have some great ideas, start a blog...it's much cheaper (as in practically [FAQ-ANSWER] in startup costs) there are no printing costs and you can have sound and video instead of just photos.

      Plus you can make a lot of money through affiliate marketing to that age group.

  35. QUESTION:
    How can the average guy use the Internet to market his product effectively?
    I am in process of studying for my Insurance license in Fl. and want to be sucessful at prospecting and selling.

    • ANSWER:
      in this day i think its important that you at least have a website

      people will expect to see this on your business card

      this will be your online 'brochure' and give you a professional email address ie name@yourdomain - you'll have no credibility if you're using a free email address

      if you're only taking on 'local' clients for FI, then a Google adwords campaign would work quite well - just make sure you target your campaign and set a daily budget!

      you could also collect some revenue from your site with adsense and affiliate products that are related to your area - but not in competition.

      i would also put a 'lead capture' box on the page to collect names/email adresses - and follow up with a brief autoresponder series offering advise on FI - people will get to 'know' you this way - you'll need a professional autoresponder company to do this (like aweber) - don't try to do it from your own email account

      that should be enough to get you started!

      this was meant to be a short answer - i've got a bit carried away!

  37. QUESTION:
    How can I make some extra money using my computer/Internet?
    Currently, I've been researching on legitimate ways of making money on the side using my computer;or any other way that would still allow me to keep a full time job during the day. I haven't had luck on finding anything that sounds legit. If you know of any please let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, the kind of question you are asking here makes you really vulnerable because people who are hungry for your money will be here presenting to you with many opportunities which some could be scam.

      Make sure you research for whatever opportunity that is presented to you before you decide to head on for it or even pay for a scam like me a couple of months ago. Just go to google and type in the "opportunity" followed by the word "scam".

      If things shows, it could be ugly...stay away from them...

      Well there are several ways people make money without paying anything upfront:
      If you own a blog or website...
      1.) You can join Adsense and put up google advertisement..they used to pay well but now..for every click you might only get a couple of cents...and unless your website has lots of traffic..i feel it's not worth the space..what kind of information do you need about adsense..my suggestion is it's not worth pursuing...

      2.) You can join affiliate programs and put up advertisements or recommendations that pays you 10 times more than adsense.

      If you want to make money online, you can do some freelancing work. I am not sure about your experience or what kind of job skills you possess.

      However, here are some options:
      if you're savvy with internet technologies, you can find lots of jobs to work from home at www.elance.com, www.scriptlance.com www.rentacoder.com

      There is also another way called affiliate marketing where you can make a living online without your own products which I have been doing for the last couple of years....

      Affiliate marketing is kind of like a virtual salesman. Where you sell other people's products and they pay you for it. The only difference is, you do not have to do it physically.

      With the power of internet. You can join Citibank as an affiliate and promote their credit card facilities through a link and they will pay you handsomely for it.

      One of the best places to find all kinds or products you can find to promote is CJ.com (commission junction)... CJ.com has lots of products you can choose from....from big names like Citibank and such...

      You join them and they give you a unique link which is unique only to you...All you have to do is to promote the link for people to click and visit. If your visitors buys another product through your link..you are instantly accredited some commission.

      CJ.com is FREE to join..of course it's free, you're helping them to make money...LOL..

      There are also other ways to make money like
      offer people good offers like cash rebate on whatever they job with think eBay, Gap, Old Navy, Circuit City, Target and more..And, whenever anybody we refer shops, we get paid too--FOREVER.
      You can check it out here...
      http://winstonyap.com/uses/cumbies

      or if you are too lazy to promote..
      you can get paid reading emails...
      how it works is...Advertisers pays these online advertising companies a certain fee per email read. so apart of the advertiser's cost from the emails being read goes to you.
      you can check them out here...

    Any Ideas how to get money for Flight Training?
    I'm 16 live in UK and want to become a pilot, my parents are 100% behind me but there's no way I will afford the training. I only have like 2000 pounds saving, any way I can get some money, and flight training isn't considered education so I can't get no help that way.

    • ANSWER:
      Why don't you give affiliate marketing a try?
      You can do this whenever you have the time. Which means you can keep earning money even while you're following the training.

      Of course the more time and effort you put into it, the faster you'll be making money. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. Your parents can even help you with affiliate marketing.

      It's starting to work for me anyway, and I only have a couple of hours a week to spend on it.
      Check out my blog: http://collegestudentjobs.wordpress.com/

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

      1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

      2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more - that's additional traffic that you get for FREE!

      Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
      CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

      3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

      If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

      4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as 0 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

      5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

  41. QUESTION:
    Buying from Retailer then selling on a website?
    I would like to find out if its illegal to buy things like clothes from retailers like Asda,Tesco,NEXT and then sell them online on my own website.The Target market being a country outside UK.Please advice.

    • ANSWER:
      http://123car-loan.ws43.com/selling-online-for-newbies.html

      If you are interested in selling online, it
      is quite easy to get started. First of all you must have a product or service to sell. This product or service can either be yours or someone else's. If you decide to sell someone's product in an affiliate program, try to know as much about the product as possible.

      To get an idea of the type of product you are interested in selling online, you should think about what sort of things you are interested in buying. If you are interested in cars, you can sell anything from model cars to books on cars. You can even provide information on applying for car loans. If you choose a great enough product or service, you can find
      many ways to sell this product and would be only limited by your imagination.

      After you have chosen a product you must create a website. If you have knowledge of website design, you can have your website up and running
      in a few hours, or less if you
      purchase and use pre-formatted website templates.. However, if you have no idea what to do to even get started with creating a website, you should hire someone to do this for
      you.

      Depending on the city you live in, there will be local computer
      stores available that offer website design and hosting. Or if you have a family member or a friend that sells online, you can ask them to recommend someone to you. Your website is important because it will be the first thing your customers see before they buy what you are selling.

      If you retain the services of a design company, make sure you buy a web hosting package with enough storage
      and bandwidth to handle the traffic you will have. You can
      ask for feedback from other webmasters who have used the same design company or for feedback on ways to improve your website. Being able to allow customers to pay online and providing customer support is essential as well.

      When you have gotten your website uploaded, now is the time to market your website. This part is crucial to the success of your business. You are unable to sell online if no one
      visits your website. You can market your website through a number of ways. For example, placing ads in classified sections both offline and online. As well, you can make
      brochures and hand out business cards. Also using banner and link exchanges with other high traffic sites can provide quality traffic and increase your business.

  42. QUESTION:
    How do you make money off blogs? any ideas on making money off the internet?
    I know some people get paid to write articles, make reviews, sell things. But I want to know how to start. Where do I find online article writing jobs? or blog writing? I want to start, but I dont know how to proceed. Thanks. How much do you get paid writing articles?

    • ANSWER:
      There are several ways to make money off the internet. My personal favourite is affiliate marketing but that is just one way.

      If you are running a blog the idea is also to run promotions for other peoples products and by referring them to a site such as Amazon then you will get a commission if they buy. There are also sites that will pay you if the visitor volunteers details such as an e-mail address so that they can then send them information.

      There are numerous different ways of monetising a website. Putting Google ads on is yet another possibility.

      Now to your original question "How do you make money off blogs?" The idea is that to make sales you obviously have to have visitors. These visitors have to be interested in what you have to say if you want them to be regular visitors and you have to offer them what they are looking for if you want to turn them into customers.

      To get visitors in the first place you need to have an internet presence that will show up on the search engines.
      Just as an example say you were running a website on photography. If people put "photography" into google search then millions of sites would show up (922,000,000 to be precise) and the chances of yours being found would be minute.
      However if you included a page on your site describing photography for pensioners then there are actually only 2 sites on google UK that have exactly that term in their title. A lot more show up if you put photography for pensioners but put it in "" and only 2 do. Now you have leverage to get to top of google. No good of course if nobody is searching for that term (Google statistics tells me that no one is) but you get the idea.

      You would then describe photographic books aimed at older people (there are some out there) and direct them to Amazon where they could buy them. Each page on your blog would be targeted at a different small part of the market where you have a far better chance of being found.

      Google like to see fresh useful content too so by regularly updating your blog and encouraging comment and interaction then you improve your ranking. There is far more to it than that of course but I think I have rambled on enough.

  43. QUESTION:
    I want to make an affiliate marketing site but I do not know which affiliate program will works good for me?
    Please give me some good suggestions.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You can join Amazon Associates program and promote their products.
      USA - https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
      UK - https://affiliate-program.amazon.co.uk/
      Canada - https://affiliate-program.amazon.ca/

      You just need to build your site and promote products available at Amazon. If some visitor arrives at your website and buys it - you get the commission.

      There's no need to ship product (Amazon handles all that) and no customer issues like preparing invoices or emails.

  44. QUESTION:
    What are some start up business ideas?
    I need some cheap start up business ideas.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Cal

      If you want really cheap business ideas then I suggest you have a business online. This way you will not need any of the usual requirements that a traditional business needs, such as premises and staff etc.

      Online there are a multitude of choices that really depend on you, your budget and your life situation.

      Work out what you can spend, if anything, on getting involved with a business and then what you can spend on advertising. Work out what you are really interested in doing (hobbies, intersts etc) and work out how you can fit a new business into your life ( how much spare time you have etc)

      Once you know what you want then you can really start looking for a business to begin.

      Some online ideas that I would recommend would be affiliate marketing, your only cost here is really the marketing and you can get involved in almost any market you like.

      Business opportunities are good. When I first started online I was interested in Personal Development and marketing to the UK so that's what I looked for and I found a biz opp that matched this. Again when you know what you want its easier to find.

      How about starting a blog online. This takes a bit longer to make money from but you can build one around any market you like and when its got a decent readership you can sell products from it or advertising space or even be paid to write articles for it.

      List building is a favorite of mine. The idea is you build list of people where you obtain their email address and perhaps phone number and then sell them products or services depending on their interests. This is cheap to do, just marketing costs and a decent email marketing system such as Aweber.

      I could really go on all day as there is so many ideas to list but if you prefer visit http://nick-squires.com where you will find in more detail information about the above and a lot more.

  45. QUESTION:
    What D&D alignment represents my views on the economy?
    My views on the economy:
    The economy must be run democratically, so that all the people have a say rather than strictly the hands of the few. The economy must also have integrity or an ethical core, no economic or business decision is to be made without raising the question of integrity of ethics.
    As Franklin D. Roosevelt said in his second Bill of Rights true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence . All citizens need the right to jobs, income, and economic security and, at the same time, independence. Poverty and crimes caused by poverty are caused by economic deprivation and inequality. Monopolies must not be allowed to occur, and the economy must be regulated to ensure that monopolies do not occur.
    The rich must give whatever they can to the community, which must then distribute that contribution to the poor based on what they need.
    It s so sad that something as simple as water is bottled up as a consumer product. It s also sad that basic resources are branded as consumer products.
    I agree with Jacque Fresco s resource-based economy.
    I think that extremely wealthy corporations need to act socially responsible and contribute to society.
    Whatever economic system is put in place, free market or state regulated, it should not inhibit freedom and individual rights of any individual and it should try to work for the good of the people and not just for itself.
    Corporations that take resources out of other countries must pay the people of said countries, thereby the people of a country should benefit from their country s resources. Land rights should belong to the people. The resources of a country should be used to help the people of said country.
    If there could be a free market that doesn't inhibit freedom or the environment, I'd like to see it. Maybe resource-based capitalism.

    What alignment represent these views? Lawful Good, Neutral Good, Chaotic Good, Lawful Neutral, True Neutral, Chaotic Neutral, Lawful Evil, Neutral Evil or Chaotic Evil?

    • ANSWER:
      I think All neutrals and goods should align for the goodness of the global economy with stable growth and acceptable social norms. It simply means we must bridge to poor and rich gap first and then to educate the global citizens to attain or at least ought to be have sense of belonging and sharing the god given wealth to this world. I would like to raise the following questions.
      1) How can we eliminate the human sins of greed, selfishness, fear of losing or reducing the individual possessions or assets?
      This is the most difficult task for almost all man kinds. Perhaps, we should follow the words of the song of "Imagine" sung by the John Lenon. I can recall the most profound and most practical words once said by your former US president, Thomas Jefferson. The establishments of the US banking systems are more dangerous than the standing soldiers.
      It appears economic problem of this world becomes the never ending problem for almost every country. The Europe PI IGS, US, UK (not affiliated with European group and still use the currency of the sterling pound), most Asian countries. Only a fewer countries, such as China, Japan, Germany, Korea, and Singapore are doing okay in these days.
      How can we brige the poor and rich gap in HOng Kong?
      http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=Hong%20Kong%20has%20the%20worse%20poor%20and%20rich%20gap%20in%20this%20world?
      Hong Kong is sucked for the too much overpaid civil servants, good for notrhing officials, public funded professionals working for the institutions, real estate tygoons,and those financial personnel and bankers.

  46. QUESTION:
    Can anyone tell me a LEGITIMATE way I can earn money from home with my computer?
    I desperately need to find a way to work from home. I am disabled with 2 children to take care of. I need to find a way to earn at least 0 a week to cover all my bills.

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, the kind of question you are asking here makes you really vulnerable because people who are hungry for your money will be here presenting to you with many opportunities which some could be scam.

      Make sure you research for whatever opportunity that is presented to you before you decide to head on for it or even pay for a scam like me a couple of months ago. Just go to google and type in the "opportunity" followed by the word "scam".

      If things shows, it could be ugly...stay away from them...

      Well there are several ways people make money from home: If you have a blogs or websites...
      1.) They join Adsense and put up google advertisement..they used to pay well but now..for every click you might only get a couple of cents...and unless your website has lots of traffic..i feel it's not worth the space..what kind of information do you need about adsense..my suggestion is it's not worth pursuing...

      2.) You can join affiliate programs and put up advertisements or recommendations that pays you 1o times more than adsense.

      I was where you were when I was being retrenched but I've got scammed because i was desperate.

      If you want to make money online, you can do some freelancing work. I am not sure about your experience or what kind of job skills you possess.

      However, here are some options:
      if you're savvy with internet technologies, you can find lots of jobs to work from home at www.elance.com, www.scriptlance.com www.rentacoder.com

      There is also another way called affiliate marketing where you can make a living online without your own products which I have been doing for the last couple of years....

      Affiliate marketing is kind of like a virtual salesman. Where you sell other people's products and they pay you for it. The only difference is, you do not have to do it physically.

      With the power of internet. You can join Citibank as an affiliate and promote their credit card facilities through a link and they will pay you handsomely for it.

      One of the best places to find all kinds or products you can find to promote is CJ.com (commission junction)... CJ.com has lots of products you can choose from....from big names like Citibank and such...

      You join them and they give you a unique link which is unique only to you...All you have to do is to promote the link for people to click and visit. If your visitors buys another product through your link..you are instantly accredited some commission.

      CJ.com is FREE to join..of course it's free, you're helping them to make money...LOL..

      There are also other ways to make money like
      offer people good offers like cash rebate on whatever they job with think eBay, Gap, Old Navy, Circuit City, Target and more..And, whenever anybody we refer shops, we get paid too--FOREVER.
      You can check it out here...
      http://winstonyap.com/uses/cumbies

      or if you are too lazy to promote..
      you can get paid reading emails...
      how it works is...Advertisers pays these online advertising companies a certain fee per email read. so apart of the advertiser's cost from the emails being read goes to you.
      you can check them out here...

  47. QUESTION:
    Are there natural cures for toenail fungus?
    My doctor said I have toenail fungus,and he said that products sold on the market could interact with a medication I take and affect my liver.I would like an alternative.Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on how chronic a case you have. There are over the counter lacquers for toenail fungus but as per the box instructions, these are only really suitable where a couple of nails are affected. With anything more chronic...they might not work. Also you have to persist and use for several months before you might see any results....as the nails grow out. And you have to be careful not to contaminate any healthy nails with the applicator stick and nail file.

      Really you need a systemic whole body approach. Looks like your doctor has ruled out the anti-fungal tablet treatment....that in itself, even without being on any other medication usually necessitates liver function monitoring.

      You could try olive leaf extract capsules...but as with any treatment you would need to wait several months before you might notice any significant results....waiting for healthy nail to appear and become obvious. More importantly, since you are on medication already, you would need to check with your doctor regarding taking olive leaf extract to be sure you could take it alongside any prescribed medications you take because some herbs have drug interactions. Read this regarding some known drug interactions with olive leaf extract and the 'herxheimer reaction' which is a reaction one might display from the death of microbes [ http://olivus.com/cautions_olive_leaf.htm ** ]. Caprylic acid [from coconut oil] tablets is another supplement worth trying, and could be taken alongside olive leaf extract. But always talk to your doctor or pharmacist first before taking supplements of any kind if on any prescribed medications.

      ** Not promoting this brand...link posted to a short article for reference purposes only...not affiliated in any way with this company or any other connected with it.

      For long-standing chronic toe nail fungus, a more drastic solution might be to have the toenails surgically removed under local anaesthetic. In the UK, you might be able to go on an NHS waiting list for that...but I think your doctor would only agree to that if it was very chronic. Plus if one was diabetic that might not be a viable solution...you would need to talk to your GP or a chiropodist. There is alternatively laser treatment for toenail fungus. That could prove to be a very expensive option and am not sure if that is available at all on the NHS in the UK. Outside of the UK you would have to enquire with your insurance company if you have private health insurance.

      There might be some anecdotal evidence circulating the Internet for non-pharmaceutical topical treatments having some benefit, perhaps if the condition is not too far advanced. These treatments might include tea tree oil, myrrh oil, Vick's vapour rub, or some other known anti-fungal oils/essential oils...garlic oil might be another for instance. You could certainly try one of those or a combination. But you would have to pre-treat your nail as you would if you were applying the lacquer...filing down any thick growth for instance. One major problem might be getting any treatment to stay in place. Also, to be really effective it needs to penetrate down to the nail root. You should be careful if you have diabetes....it might be better to seek professional help.

      As a preventative in future after successful treatment, or to help with prevention of the infection spreading to healthy toenails: always dry your feet well after showering...air dry for a while...and wear open toe sandals as much as possible in dry sunny weather.

      Toenail fungus could be a signal one's immune system is functioning below par. Diabetics and some with other health conditions, immuno-compromised particularly, might be more prone to fungal infections. If you have any underlying health conditions or concerns...discuss a suitable plan of action with your GP or other healthcare provider.

      Good luck...hope you find a solution and resolution.

  49. QUESTION:
    How can i find a real home typist job Please don t want to buy anything. a real job i need. I m fast typist
    i've searched on the net but all what i've found is ads to buy ebooks for finding places that offers that type of jobs. but any of them have could assure me that into those e-books is what i'm looking for. Somone can help me telling me if there is a site where i can wirte directely. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      First off, you are correct to not want to pay anything to work for someone!!!

      It is very possible to work from home "typing", but you must be realistic. For one thing, most likely you will probably be working for a very small amount of money. Most "work at home jobs" pay very little for the simple fact there is so much competition for these jobs (specifically in countries where income is much smaller than America/UK etc).

      Many people who work from home on the internet that are actually making a profit are freelancers. They are hired on a project by project basis by many different companies.

      You can bid on jobs like this at places like scriptlance.com and elance.com. Again, don't necessarily expect to earn very much per hour unless you have a very specific skill to offer in addition to typing (i.e. - programming, writing, translation, etc.)

      Another way to work from home would be to run your own business where you review/market other people's products. You can find a lot of articles on affiliate marketing at articlepros.com.

      These are just 2 ideas, but there are MANY MANY options!

      Good luck in your hunt! Persistence is the key. Trust me you CAN earn money from home... I've been doing it for 8 years :-)

  50. QUESTION:
    Traffic for a cell phone products site?
    I have an affiliate cell phone web site and I want more traffic but don't want to do PPC. What can you recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it's easier said than done.

      Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

      1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

      2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more - that's additional traffic that you get for FREE!

      Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
      CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

      3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

      If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

      4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as 0 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

      http://www.newswiretoday.com/
      http://www.free-press-release.com/

      5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

      Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

      6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article " How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site " http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

You can access the VHSG Ning group by clicking on the link on the right sidebar on the VHSG homepage. It is a friendly group, you will learn a lot there.

  4. QUESTION:

    I know that online marketing can be tough, but has anyone had any real luck and with what products? I don't believe these products are so much scams as people get hooked with poor mentors.

    • ANSWER:
      Marketing training products, rather than affiliate products to sell?

      The tutorials by Chad H. are more candid and BS free than most courses, his latest Traffic Black Book 2 on Udemy.com touches on optimizing campaigns and making them profitable, has guest instructors like the maker of an advertising spy service, showing various market research tools.

  5. QUESTION:
    What college is the best to take online courses for fashion merchandising?
    I just wanted suggestions on what college is the best for online courses and for majoring in fashion merch. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      The best college program will be one that is NOT online. There have been widespread reports of students hiring impostors to take online courses for them. The school has no way of knowing who is actually sitting at the computer. Is it the student, the impostor, or both? That means that ANY online program is considered questionable. Avoid ANY online schools or any for-profit schools, since they are not well accepted in the job market or for transfer to a legit university. Employers are known to automatically reject any job applicant that lists a for-profit school or online school. As a former job recruiter, I can say that we would never hire anyone with an online degree or anyone from a for-profit school.
      If you want some of the convenience of online classes, try taking blended courses where some of the study can be done online, but all tests or lab work is done in an actual classroom where a photo I.D. is required for entry. That helps prevent cheating. These types of classes are often available at public community colleges.
      I know a woman who got her fashion merchandising degree at a large state university. She went on to become the manager of a woman's clothing store, and eventually became the regional manger of a large chain of women's clothing stores. She minored in business, so that was also an advantage in the job market. Look for a university that has regional, NOT just national accreditation. Regional accreditation is a far higher standard. Also look for public or non-profit colleges, since they are far more accepted in the job market. Avoid any for-profit schools like U. of Phoenix, Kaplan, BrownMackie, Capella, ICS,APUS, Everest, PennFoster, FullSail, Ashford, etc.
      There are tons of for-profit schools that try to lure girls into their "fashion" programs, but many are outright scams. See RipOffReport.com for reviews on colleges to avoid.

  6. QUESTION:
    How much do the average online course cost?
    I was wondering how much online courses, if they cost more or less than actually going to campus. I'm not worried about how hard the criteria is, I just want info on the cost of a one year course.

    • ANSWER:
      Online courses tend to vary in price, so we could say they are more expensive, but that is relative. Of course they are more expensive that a community college, but less expensive than Harvard. The price range varies.

      Suggestions for selecting online schools
      The key is to make sure the college/university is accredited. I have three basic recommendations for everyone looking into online/distance education. They all have to do with exploring; after all, you have to defend your assets.

      1. Make certain that you have triple checked their accreditation. First, they tell you what it is, then you go to that accrediting body s website (not through the link provided by the school), and thirdly you would visit the department of education to see what they have to say. Do your diligent research into the institutions once you have narrowed down to a couple. You can look at the Better Business Bureau for more information on the college.

      2. You must have extreme self motivation and be able to teach yourself per say. This means that you will not have someone telling you verbally, so it is up to you to get the information from the course room, text, and other resources. The best way to look at it is like a guided independent study course.

      3. Review your goals, personal and professional. Make sure that the school that you are going to offers the programs that match your goals. Do not settle. There are many programs that are similar, but you have to make the ultimate decision. Do not let it be based on finances and length of program, but the fact that when you are finished or near finished you will be able to assume your proper place in the career field sought.

      You should market yourself and not the degree or university. There are many traditional universities offering degrees that can be earned through online methods. Distance Learning Alliance has a list of these traditional online schools. Look at that if you are truly concerned with the name of the school. Good luck on your search!

  7. QUESTION:
    What online programming course would you recommend?
    I'm looking to take an online course in programming, probably in JAVA/C++. There are so many I don't even know where to start? Can anyone make a recommendation?

    • ANSWER:
      There are tons of online programs. I personally attended American Intercontinental Univ. and Capella University, and I have taught for various online schools over the last five years. All are accredited and solid programs. Online courses tend to vary in price, so we could say they are more expensive, but that is relative. Of course they are more expensive than a community college, but less expensive than Harvard. The price range varies.

      The key is to find a program that is fully accredited. You should market yourself and not the degree or university. There are many traditional universities offering degrees that can be earned through online methods. Distance Learning Alliance has a list of these traditional online schools. Look at that if you are truly concerned with the name of the school. Good luck on your search!

  9. QUESTION:
    What's the best school for Internet Marketing?
    I'm looking into Fullsail and University of San Fransisco online courses for Internet Marketing. I wanted to know if anyone has attended these or other schools like them and what their results were?

    Cheers!

    • ANSWER:
      I've never heard of anyone going to Fullsail other than for entertainment industry technical classes; certainly it isn't known for marketing. The advantage to USF is that, unless these are courses taught through their Extension program (in which case I would not really advise either school). their courses will be transferable, should you ever choose to apply them toward an actual degree.

  10. QUESTION:
    Which is the best University for doing Marketing related online certification course ?
    I want to know which is the best university for doing online certification course in the subjects of Advertising or Marketing Communication or Strategic Marketing or Marketing Research?? Please help...

    • ANSWER:
      There are tons of online programs. I personally attended American Intercontinental Univ. and Capella University, and have taught for various online schools including the University of Phoenix. All are accredited and solid programs. Online courses tend to vary in price, so we could say they are more expensive, but that is relative. Of course they are more expensive than a community college, but less expensive than Harvard. The price range varies.

      The key is to find a program that is fully accredited. Is it worth it? YES. My career has boomed since my MBA at nearly 5 years ago. I am close to finishing my PhD through distance education, and I am at the job that I want. I know I wouldn t be here without the education. If you are looking at work in the U.S., then you need a school that is accredited and recognized by the Dept of Ed. I can give more info on that later.

      You should market yourself and not the degree or university. There are many traditional universities offering degrees that can be earned through online methods. Distance Learning Alliance has a list of these traditional online schools. Look at that if you are truly concerned with the name of the school. Good luck on your search!

  11. QUESTION:
    What financial aid could i get for studying a online course instead of university?
    I am currently in college studying games development and i'm really serious about getting a job into the gaming industry, however university isn't a path in which i see myself under, I've spoken with lots of people who work in the industry and they say getting a job is about evidence of work (examples) instead of degrees.

    however i was wondering exactly what financial aid could i get doing a online course?
    Im from the United Kingdom and im currently 18.

    • ANSWER:
      An online program could be a waste of time and money for you. The "graduate"of an online program may have done nothing but hire an impostor to take the courses. As a result, any online program is considered questionable. You probably would not be eligible for as much financial aid for an online program when compared to actual classroom attendance.

      No online program can be as good as the learning experience and personal interaction of actual classroom attendance. In my experience online programs are not as well accepted in the job market either.

  12. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of any good online courses for learning piano tuning and repair?
    I already play the piano to a pretty high level, but was really interested in learning more about the field of piano tuning etc as hopefully a holiday job...
    I would assume that it is impossible to learn from another piano tuner since they would hardly want to create more competition, so an online course seemed like the most likely alternative - or maybe there is a book or better way to go about this?

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, apprenticeship is still the preferred route. Many of the active tuners/technicians are older and would like to slow down or retire. A rebuilding shop may have several workers, and could be an ideal place to get a start. There have also been many who have left the field leaving too much work for others. The hard part is being in a market where there are still a lot of acoustic pianos. Often cities or affluent areas of larger towns. So many pianos have been replaced by digitals.

      Anyway, the only online/in home tuning course that consistently gets high praises is Randy Potter's http://www.pianotuning.com/

      One more thing. If you go this route, do join the piano technicians guild. http://www.ptg.org/ and live up to the standards of a true tuner. Anyone can buy a tuning hammer and mutes and run around calling himself a piano tuner, but having the credentials gives you opportunities with professional organizations who may need tuning. Restaurants, orchestras, night clubs, etc.

      Also three books for the bookshelf: The pierce piano atlas: http://pianoatlas.com Larry Fine's Piano book; http://www.pianobook.com/ and Arthur A. Reblitz' "Piano Servicing, Tuning, and Rebuilding": http://www.amazon.com/Piano-Servicing-Tuning-Rebuilding-Second/dp/1879511037 (Maybe also "Pianos and Their Makers by Alfred Dolge - though it's an older book)

      ... And if you're in New England, there is no better program than the North Bennett Street School in Boston: http://www.nbss.org/programs/piano-technology/index.aspx

  14. QUESTION:
    What are your opinions of online courses?
    My school only offers three ap courses so i wanted to take some on the Internet. I have a 4.0 gpa (unweighted) and I dont want to ruin that. So are online courses worth taking and how is the teaching?

    • ANSWER:
      My farvorite answer: It depends. Mostly on who is offering the courses, and how they are structured. My daughter is a professor of sociology at Florida State and with a government grant has put them on line for far flung students. I am also an Instructional designer and have written internet courses in wide ranging subjects from computer programming to marketing. As for grades, I think they are either pass/fail, or a percentage of correct answers. It depends on who is supervising you and what standards they expect you to reach to get a grade.

  15. QUESTION:
    What are the best online universities that offer masters degrees?
    I would like to get an online masters degree in marketing. What are the best online universities? Are there any reputable conventional Universities that offer full degrees online? Harvard offers online courses, some of which could be counted towards a masters degree, but does not offer a full degree online.
    I am not a residence of the US and not able to travel to attend regular courses but I am able to travel for tests.
    I guess I'm looking for a good marketing masters program from a reputable university.

    • ANSWER:
      I am not aware of a top school that offers an online masters degree specifically in marketing. However, you may be able to get a degree in a closely related field depending on what area of marketing you want to pursue. So this answer is going to be geared toward universities with an excellent reputation.

      Harvard's Extension School has some programs that only require that you take a single class in person. If you plan your course work carefully, you can take a summer session class and only have to be in Cambridge for 8 weeks. So the amount of time you'd need to be in the US would be minimal. If you can travel for tests, this might work out for you. Also, Harvard's Extension School seems to have some of the lowest tuition of any reputable online school, so you might actually come out ahead financially over some of the other options. Generally you should expect to spend about ,000 to ,000 on tuition.

      Here is some information about the Harvard Extension School experience:
      http://www.productivity501.com/harvard-masters-degree/6463/

      Another place you might look is Penn State. Many of their programs require some type of residency. The MBA program requires you to come for two week long classes. Still, if you can travel for tests, this is probably doable. The cost will probably be in the ,000 to ,000 range depending on what classes you take.
      http://www.worldcampus.psu.edu/

      Two other places you might check:
      http://scpd.stanford.edu/
      http://www.cvn.columbia.edu/

      They are both significantly more expensive than Harvard or Penn State. Stanford may require that you have a corporate sponsor. Columbia looks like their program may be possible without any travel at all.

      Good luck!

    Suggest me some good tips for free church marketing on Social Media?
    I want to do online marketing for my church on social media, especially on Facebook. Please give me some best tips..
    Thanks in Advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Julio
      In order to be successful in SMM which of course stands for "Social Medico Marketing" you need to understand how social works, and then its a whole lot easier.

      Social media is a place where people like to socialize and get cool stuff, not all stuff are cool for the same people, so in order to be successful it is important for you to have an idea and understanding of people you are trying to target. and write about stuff they would like to hear and see and is also related to your topics.

      A good tip would be you should follow your direct and not direct competitors everybody that is in your niche or similar so their followers share the same interest as your followers, and get involved re-tweeting their stuff and adding good info and value to them, that way you will automatically create some interest in the market place, and people will start following you too. that way you will also get a good understanding what your targeted people are interested to see and hear.

      always make sure to set up your profile in such a way that when someone who is interest in those topics comes by he should know that this is his place, you can also cheat on that from your competitors.

      Always follow back your followers and if they say good stuff re tweet it, so they will do the same to you.

      I hope really that helps.
      If you need any additional info feel free to email me.

  20. QUESTION:
    What is the best higher education course I can find?
    I tried searching for online courses but couldn't find the one that I wish to study. There are so many different diploma courses and degrees offered by institutions that I don't know where to start. Someone recommended IT course but it's too competitive in the present job market situation.

    Study abroad is also another good option and choosing which country to apply is not easy. There are so many information on the net that sucks because most of them are affiliates promoting and selling something.

    Is there any reliable sites that really provide genuine information on degree course and private education?

    Thank you very much!

    • ANSWER:
      Essentially, if you have an associates or bachelor's degree that isn't in a professional program like nursing, engineering, or teaching, your degree equally qualifies you for a variety of entry level jobs. Jobs you can get may depend greatly on your previous work experience and especially on your course internships. Unless you have significant research experience, a BA in psychology is pretty similar to a BA in sociology or philosophy.

      What these liberal arts degrees do is, to prepare you well for higher level education. With a master's degree, you can do a number of more things than with a bachelor's. You can teach at either high school or college level most countries don't require folks with master's degrees to get teaching certificates. With an MA or MFA in English writing or journalism you can definitely get writing jobs of various sorts like editing or writing for a local newspaper. With an MBA you're ready to enter in at the middle management level or help a local business step it up. And with an MA in theology, you can use the diploma as paper to roll tobacco and smoke it up with the hippies squatting behind the seminary.

      If you go to the doctorate level, you will be able to teach at a college or university, write books about things that only a few people are really interested in, or lead research teams. Actually, there are a fair number of things that require doctorates these days. Part of that is there are a lot more PhD bearing people around now than there were 50 years ago, and part of that is there are a lot more specialized information and research jobs than there used to be.

      Professional graduate degrees are really what it is all about, in terms of degrees that will get you jobs jobs that are useful to society and jobs that will get you the most money. Creative design, Nursing specialist, Engineers, Architects are the in-demand jobs these days. To your success. Cheers.

    What is a good school of psychology that is not an online program?
    I'm trying to explore my options about getting a bachelors in clinical psychology that does not involve an online course. I did try to Google it, but all I find is online schools! Please give me some advice.
    Thank you! ^.^' Eheh, they advertise the online courses a bit more than actual campuses. I also didn't quiet understand how the system worked on that. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The key is to make sure the college/university is accredited. I have three basic recommendations for everyone looking into online/distance education. They all have to do with exploring; after all, you have to defend your assets.

      1. Make certain that you have triple checked their accreditation. First, they tell you what it is, then you go to that accrediting body s website (not through the link provided by the school), and thirdly you would visit the department of education to see what they have to say. Do your diligent research into the institutions once you have narrowed down to a couple. You can look at the Better Business Bureau for more information on the college.

      2. You must have extreme self motivation and be able to teach yourself per say. This means that you will not have someone telling you verbally, so it is up to you to get the information from the course room, text, and other resources. The best way to look at it is like a guided independent study course.

      3. Review your goals, personal and professional. Make sure that the school that you are going to offers the programs that match your goals. Do not settle. There are many programs that are similar, but you have to make the ultimate decision. Do not let it be based on finances and length of program, but the fact that when you are finished or near finished you will be able to assume your proper place in the career field sought.

      You should market yourself and not the degree or university. There are many traditional universities offering degrees that can be earned through online methods. Distance Learning Alliance has a list of these traditional online schools. Look at that if you are truly concerned with the name of the school. Good luck on your search!

  23. QUESTION:
    Online short courses (IT, multimedia, or marketing) in the Philippines?
    I'm thinking about the possibility of pursuing a diploma or advanced diploma online but not sure which colleges offers it. TESDA doesn't offer what I want. Informatics doesn't offer online courses (a few classes are online but not the entire program). Concordia International Philippines doesn't offer courses that I want. I work full time virtually so I am only interested in a short course in IT, marketing, or multimedia that will result in a diploma or advanced diploma. I already have almost 6 years of college cedits under my belt but it's becoming a hassle and I'm tired of dealing with the system.

    Please, no answers like "just finish your college degree....6 years? Keep going and finish. You can do it!" If you have any recommendations for any good colleges offering short courses, that would be great.

    • ANSWER:
      You could get these online courses through TESDA. You may even get lucky and get scholarships.

    I already have a shopping cart to charge people. How would I set up an online email course for my business?

    • ANSWER:
      do you mean to teach people who to use email? If so, I don't see the market for it. Kind of like teaching kids to ride a bike, they get the info from parents or friends.

  26. QUESTION:
    What are significant online courses or schooling that requires less than a year but pays at least 25,000/yr?
    I just lost my job and found out I'm pregnant. I feel like keeping this child, though unexpected, is the right choice for me. Finding another minimum wage job would only work for so long.. I need to find schooling that will offer legitimate online courses, or on-campus courses that I could earn my degree/certificate in less than a year. Having the baby will set me back a couple of months so I would ideally like to be done with school before the delivery or at least be taking courses online at home so I can care for my child. Suggestions from anyone? A little lost right now, could use some opinions via web.

    Also, additional information: I'm about 4-5 weeks along, so I have time for school. The father is in my life, but he has a felony holding him back from a legitimate paying job so I'll need to be raking in the extra cash.

    • ANSWER:
      I have been browsing the net recently for a certificate program that would increase my market value in different fields. I chose nutrition which would be a good choice for you to study. There are other courses that offer certificates some are free, or would require on campus testing to get an actual diploma. I chose http://www.oxfordcollege.ac/, they have level 3 courses in many fields that offer a diploma. This website (http://www.openculture.com/free_certificate_courses) lists free courses. I would suggest you look for accredited universities with online courses that offer on campus final testing that should guarantee you its legitimacy. Wish you good luck.

  28. QUESTION:
    Will taking online college courses affect my chances of getting hired?
    So i was researching a little and I have this problem with home-sickness so I'm not really looking forward to going to a college 3 hours from home (not to mention the total cost), and I've noticed some people say online courses affect your chances employers will higher you and I've seen that it doesn't because college teachers teach from the book (which i can up that from my technical college) and if you have the book take the same tests do the same projects it wouldn't be any different, so which is really true?

    • ANSWER:
      Online courses are not well accepted in the job market or for transfer to other colleges. There have been widespread reports of students hiring impostors to take online courses for them. That means that ANY online course is considered questionable, even if from a legit college. Some colleges have blended courses that allow some online study, but require actual classroom attendance for all testing or lab studies. A photo I.D. is required for entry to the classroom,. That helps prevent students cheating by hiring impostors.

      As a former job recruiter, I can say that we would never hire anyone with any online degree or anyone from any for-profit school. Among the schools with the worst reputations are University of Phoenix, Kaplan, Penn Foster,Brown-Mackie, Everest, APUS, Full Sail, Capella, Ashford, ICS, DeVry, and far too many others to list. I know some employers automatically reject any resume listing those schools. Choose a college that is either public or non-profit, and NOT an online program. Also look for regional accreditation, it's far better than national accreditation.
      No online program can be as good as the interpersonal socialization and educational interaction of actual classroom attendance. Employers know this, and it shows in their hiring practices. Part of the true college experience includes the social activities that cannot be duplicated online.
      If home sickness is an issue for you, then consider actual classroom attendance at a local public community college with courses chosen based on transfer requirements to a 4 year university for the final 2 years. That would allow you to live at home with parents and get real legit college at a bargain price too.

  29. QUESTION:
    I want to learn stock market trading. I am a beginner.Is there any institute or online course available.?
    want to learn stock market trading. I am a beginner.Is there any institute or online course available.?I watch business news channel , but cant understand lot of stuffs .I am very confused how to gain knowledge to do safe trading ..Appreciate your suggestion

    • ANSWER:
      To be a trader you must first learn how to invest. You must know the products and the markets in which they trade, how security transactions are cleared and more importantly you must know the rules that govern those products and markets. So you must know what you re doing, why you re doing it, and how to do it. You should start by reading Investing for Dummies by Eric Tyson.

      Here s a list of books you should consider, at least read half of them
      Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered, by Gallea
      How to Trade in Stocks, Jesse Livermore
      Millionaire Traders, Lein & Schlosberg
      One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch
      Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, Edwin Lefevre
      The Disciplined Trader, Mark Douglas
      Trader Vic-Methods of a Wall Street Master, Victor Sperandeo
      Trader Vic II-Principles of Professional Speculation, Victor Sperandeo
      Trading for a Living, by Alexander Elder
      Trading in the Zone, Mark Douglas

      And when you think you want to trade, try some paper trading to test your skills without spending you money http://simulatorinvestopedia.com/ http://www.moneyworks4me.com/
      and/or http://www.tradingsimulation.com/

      Before you enter your first order you need to address four major policies and have very strong discipline to follow them
      1 - You need a written sound trading/investment plan with rules that will not only help you but more importantly protect you, mostly from yourself. Always use stops either to protect you on the down side or to lock in profits on the up side. Never trade on emotions, when emotions get involved walk away. Don t try to out-smart the market, you ll loose but if you always take what the market is willing to give you, you ll be successful. Other words, you don t trade against the trend since the market is always right. And NEVER trade on emotions, once you let emotions in your trades you will loose
      2 - A written money management program is essential. Remember never invest 100% of your capital into any one security and never have 100% of your capital invested. Never go into a trade without knowing when and where you are going to get out of it. Never let a loss on a trade get greater than 8%-10%, always take you loss and walk away - don't loose more than you need to and don't be afraid to take the loss. Remember you never can get hurt taking a profit. Never average down, but you can average up.
      3 - You must have sufficient trading/investment capital. Use your own money, there s no need to go into debt so that you can trade and/or invest. Margin can be used but only with restraints, never let the account wall below 45% equity. Unless you fully understand margins you should not use it.
      4 A full and complete understanding of the rules & regulations of the industry. If your going to play in the game be sure you know the rules of the game and always follow them.

      Unless you are willing to study and follow the above you will never make it as a trader. To be successful as a trader it takes work and constant study of the markets and the products traded in those markets, there is no easy way.

  30. QUESTION:
    Becoming a wedding planner where to start?
    I'm 20 years old, and want to become a wedding planner.
    Im planning on taking an online course on it but dont know where i should take it from.
    once im done taking my course, how do i start?

    • ANSWER:
      I kind of "grew up" in the wedding industry, it's REALLY competitive, especially starting out. You need a strong network or suppliers, vendors, clients and people that can give you recommendations. Starting out from scratch is hard (as in any industry) but there are ways to start to establish yourself and make a little money as you work your way up and built your referral/client-base.

      You can start out working in an event planning firm or at a venue that hosts weddings to get some experience. Some venues provide couples with an onsite planner (my venue does and she is so helpful) and those places always need other help like administrative work, etc. So thse can really get your foot-in-the-door with industry insiders.

      I have looked into event planning myself, because am looking to start my carer in fundraising (events for charities) and non-profit organizations. I'm actually taking a part-time course at a local community college (I already have a business degree from a university) in fundraising events. I wouldn't know where to suggest you go for recommendations for online courses, but I would look into your local community college if you have one close to you. Usually event planning programs include courses on marketing (yourself/business) and some basic business administration.

      Most importantly, being a wedding planner is more than just picking colours and helping couples decide on a caterer. It's running a business, so you have to file taxes, manage cash flow/accounting and take care of marketing and daily business operations. A background and/or knowledge in business and running a business is an important thing some people overlook. You need business skills as well as event planning and networking skills. You also need to register your business with the state/province and file taxes, no matter what type of small business you run (event planning or otherwise)

      I just found this article written by a wedding planner too:

    Tennis (1 credit, ends in October) - I already took a physical education class though. Just doing it to meet people and to earn another credit.
    Accounting (4 credits) - prerequisite to a class I need for my major
    Humanities (3 credits) - general education requirement (all students take this no matter their major)
    Principles of Marketing (3 credits) - needed for major
    Spreadsheets Online Course (1 credit, starts in October) - needed for general education requirement and prerequisite for a class I need for my major
    Career Class (a class to help you find out what you want to do with your life. A complete joke class. 1 credit, ends in October)

    Problem? I feel like I'm slacking off. I do gain a total of 16 credits, but the first half, I will only juggle 15 credits and then 14 credits the second half of the semester. I am recommended by the school to take at least 15, but it is extremely common for students to take 17 or 18.

    My adviser and my dad (who pays for my education) don't seem to help me. My dad says not to take 18.

    I don't have a job and my social life, unfortunately, is lacking. So, if I am going to bored and poor, I might as well busy myself with studies.. but my dad doesn't want me taking 18 credits. But to me, with 2 of those classes (tennis and career class) ending in October, I will get more free time and don't know what to do with myself. I want to graduate ASAP! I don't want to screw up college like my brothers did before me.

    Any advice? Stick with this schedule or tweak it in some way? Or attempt to find a campus job despite little change of getting one?
    I took 15 last semester and got a 3.45. I suck at math and had a math class that brought me down.

    I already have 27 credits and I need 124 to graduate, so I can graduate in 4 years if I take 15-16 each semester, but it all depends on if I can get the classes I need.

    • ANSWER:
      If I were you I'd actually go for the job. You will have a little more money to spend, and the experience is going to be invaluable when you get out of school.

      Since your dad is paying for your education, he'll probably be paying for the extra semester or so you may need to take if for some reason you fall short on credits. Are there any smaller seminar classes you are interested in that you could add?

  32. QUESTION:
    What is a reputable source (organization/school) for stock market and options play education?
    I am a beginner/intermediate stocks and options market trader. I have not formally taken any course or read any books on how to trade in the US/Canadian market.

In person lectures are preferred; online courses are okay too. In addition, please supply a shortlist of reputable books/texts.

  33. QUESTION:
    Anyone know a good place to take online courses for web design?
    I'm looking for interactive online courses to learn Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and perhaps Flash for web design. I would prefer if it was some sort of accredited school so I could gain college credit.

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      There are tons of online programs. I personally attended American Intercontinental Univ. and Capella University, and I have taught for various online schools over the last five years. All are accredited and solid programs. Online courses tend to vary in price, so we could say they are more expensive, but that is relative. Of course they are more expensive than a community college, but less expensive than Harvard. The price range varies.

      The key is to find a program that is fully accredited. You should market yourself and not the degree or university. There are many traditional universities offering degrees that can be earned through online methods. Distance Learning Alliance has a list of these traditional online schools. Look at that if you are truly concerned with the name of the school. Good luck on your search!

  35. QUESTION:
    Should I do an online college or in classroom?
    I want a 4 year degree in Psychology. I am worried about doing online courses because I would hate to not get a job because the employer picked an in classroom degree person.
    Does anyone have any statistics or info to back this up? Is it true that online degrees are not looked at as highly as a in classroom?

    • ANSWER:
      There are tons of online programs. I personally attended American Intercontinental Univ. and Capella University, and have taught for various online schools including the University of Phoenix. All are accredited and solid programs. Online courses tend to vary in price, so we could say they are more expensive, but that is relative. Of course they are more expensive than a community college, but less expensive than Harvard. The price range varies.

      The key is to find a program that is fully accredited. Is it worth it? YES. My career has boomed since my MBA at nearly 5 years ago. I am close to finishing my PhD through distance education, and I am at the job that I want. I know I wouldn t be here without the education. If you are looking at work in the U.S., then you need a school that is accredited and recognized by the Dept of Ed. I can give more info on that later.

      You should market yourself and not the degree or university. There are many traditional universities offering degrees that can be earned through online methods.

      Hello Random_k

      Well then I'd have to ask if you have writing skills? Or willing to be a Virtual Assistant? If so you definitely want to checkout some freelance boards to check for jobs related to what you're willing to do that is outside of marketing.

      People need virtual assistants for a variety of things and content/article writers/blog writers are always needed.

      You can begin your search in the "gigs" section on Craigslist using the keywords "virtual assistant" and "writer" or "blogger" if that type of work interests you.

      Also you can checkout the job postings on freelance boards like scriptlance.com, elance.com, getafreelancer.com etc

      Hope this helps.

    What kind of degree do I need to be hired by an ad agency?
    And how long should it take me to get it? Would an online course in advertising be enough or would I have to get more of a degree in this kind of field? Is there still a need for this line of work?
    Any answers to any of these questions would be greately appreciated!
    Also any tips on how to persue this kind of job would be nice!!
    Thanks so much in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Advertising agencies need all types of people with many degrees- not just in advertising and marketing.

      A company I've worked for in the past hired people from all backgrounds including: sports management, business, economics, communications, web development, creative design and graphic design.

      More and more, advertising agencies are combining their traditional services (print, tv, ad) with the internet (ad banners, click ads, email marketing, and websites). This provides a great opportunity for you; there are tons of agencies that need individuals to help support both areas.

      I recommend enrolling in a degree that you are truly interested in. If you are simply enrolling for the sake of gaining employment with an ad agency, you may be miserable at work for the next decade or so.

      Additionally, have you researched what it is like working for an agency? Many require above-average weekly hours without OT, and deadlines make the office a zoo. However, that isn't to say that there are no 9-5 agencies out there.

      The link below offers a variety of schools; you should compare costs and programs available and find something you enjoy, and that hopefully will not depreciate in the forseable future (ie web design).

      Good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      Advertising using online means is also known as viral marketing
      There are many advantages of using viral marketing such as:

      It cater to larger audience through world wide web and emails. Viral marketing practices which use internet as the communication media can be accessed by large amount of people worldwide and it can be seen as an advantage over traditional advertising media such as tv and radio advertisements.
      It uses existing communication among friends and other associations to spread the message. As an example if a product message is spread in Twitter using retweets it uses the existing followers of the retwitter to spread the message.
      It is considered to be a cost effective advertising method when compared to traditional advertising modes. Posting a blog post or sending an emails potential customers does not cost as much cost of advertising in Television.
      It works as a faster mode of reaching the customer.
      Helps to build the reputation of the firm fast through increased sales and online promotions.
      It caters to the exact target market of the product as filtering is possible when using online means. As an example, if a company wishes to introduce a product for teenagers living in New York ans wishes to advertise on Facebook, it is possible for the firm to access basic information of the user and filter the target market.
      Tools used in viral marketing can be set up with less effort. Composing an email message or a blog post does not require much of effort when compared to making a TV commercial or bill board campaign.
      Customizing the message based on user preference and local interest is also possible in viral marketing through data mining techniques.
      There can be disadvantages of using viral marketing such as:

      Issue of SPAMS- Viral marketing uses means such as emails and commenting on blogs and forums. When the viral marketing in done in a large scale it becomes annoying for the email receiver to receive large amount of emails in their inbox and they are made filtered as spam messages.
      Viral marketing talks about only spreading the message to potential consumers through online means but spreading the message is not does not benefit the firm. Sale has occur at the end for the firm to benefit but the amount of actual sales made apart from promotions is questionable under viral marketing.
      Results directly attributable to viral marketing is unquantifiable as companies use other marketing techniques and purchase motivation of the consumer depends on the consumer black box, not based on viral marketing.
      It very hard to make the people to spread the message by emails and other means as people are more concentrated about their personal work rather than doing marketing for business organizations.
      Continuous effort in viral marketing can cause the product message reaching out of target audience which will result in brand dilution by sales occurring at non-targeted users.
      Viral marketing focuses more on short term success rather than building differentiation to gain long term advantages.
      It can be easily imitated by competitors as anyone on internet can launch marketing campaigns easily.

  42. QUESTION:
    What are the best resources for creating free websites and selling ads for those websites?
    What is a typical rate for ads? How much would one charge for per visit and/ or per click? How is this tracked and billed?

    Also, if anyone recommends a particular online course (accredited) for such learning, please offer a link and any other valuable information. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Most often a web site with significant traffic, you can sign up with an advertising network that will place appropriate banners on your site, the pay per click ads I am families with cost the advertiser
      [FAQ-ANSWER].50 to .00 per click and the web site hosting the ads might earn 1/2 of that amount.

      Some networks require as much as 500,000 visitors a month to qualify for their program, others might accept your site if it sees 10,000 visitors a month, even that volume can take a significant site development effort to achieve, a young blog might see more like 1000 a month. The point being, getting traffic to a site is the primary goal of a site developer. it's tough to make a free site hugely popular and you are at the mercy of the host who can cancel your account on a whim. Advertising is generally restricted to some degree by the free hosts, Google allows adsense on their Blogger sites. Hubpages does a 60/40 revenue split for Amazon, Adsense and (hard to qualify for) eBay ads.

      Simple Adsense units may be installed o most any site with decent content, Google takes care of populating the ad units with ads matching each page's subject. 1s of thousands of visitors are typically needed to meet their 0 minimum earnings payout. Some basic blogs never reach a lifetime total that high.

      More revenues are typically earned by promoting specific products for an affiliate commission, you might write a review or tutorial on an issue that is resolved by the product you link to in the article. While the click through rate is higher for these article links than banners, you still may get one click for every 100 - 200 visitors. And you only get paid if someone buys the product at the destination, you may get more like 1 in 1000+ visitors actually complete a transaction.

      You might search for Internet Marketing Forum and read the discussions there for a free education.

  43. QUESTION:
    I want to become a financial advisor. How can I break into the field?
    I have a bachelor's degree from Indiana University in Journalism. I have been working in customer service for manufacturing companies for the past year and a half. Should I go back to school for my MBA? Should I take an online course to become a CFP? Or should I look for an internship at a financial services company?

    • ANSWER:
      You don't even need a university degree at all to be a Financial Advisor, let alone an MBA. (Also hard to do an MBA if you don't have a BBA...can't do a Masters of Physics unless you ..y'know, took Physics)

      Most Financial Advisor firms are hiring constantly, they usually do get you to train with them first at no pay and then send you out on your own.

      It's a totally commision based business, and you train and work for them initially for free, so they'll pretty much hire anyone who doesn't seem like a total waste of time.

      After that you've got to develop your own business, they'll give you a start on how, but its really up to you. Prepare for the idea of working a few years before building enough clients to make a profit.

      The companies usually have active recruiters looking for a sales force, call the company you're interested in and ask them about it. You could also visit any job fair, I garauntee there will be no less than 5 Advisor companies present recruiting Agents.

      I don't think it's a very good job, the vast majority do quit with losses in the first 2 years, but those who do become successful can make some money, but it's very work intensive and hours and inital investment are large.

      'Breaking into the field' is kind of like saying you'd like to 'Break into door to door vacuum sales'..Just go tell them you want to, and unless you're retarded, you're in...in some cases, even if you are.

      PS though, Do NOT work for WFG. They'll bind your hands with crazy compliance. Work for something with a big enough name that it can help you market yourself, Primerica, Investor's Group...something more like that.

      Good luck if that's what you decide to do.

  46. QUESTION:
    How good a school is University of Phoenix?
    I'm interested in their online courses, especially those dealing with the tourism and hospitality field.

    • ANSWER:
      University of Phoenix has a terrible reputation! See RipOffReport.com for reviews. Avoid ANY online-only schools or ANY for profit schools.
      Online courses are not well accepted in the job market. There have been widespread reports of students hiring impostors to take online courses for them. The school has no way of knowing who is at the computer. Is it the student, the impostor, or both?
      As a former job recruiter, I can say that we would never hire anyone from any for-profit school or any online-only school. You should be able to get a better legit education at a local public community college. It will generally cost less and be more accepted in the job market than any for-profit school like University of Phoenix.

  47. QUESTION:
    I am interested in event planning but mostly wedding planning?
    I have taken an online course from penn foster on wedding planning and also graduated with my associates degree in hospitality management, I want to start my own wedding planning business near Louisville KY does anybody have some advice for me on how to do so? I have many books on business also, does anyone know any great books? Is anyone an experienced planning? Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Before you jump into wedding planning, do some market research first.

      1. How many weddings are there in your area? How much does the average couple spend? How many wedding planners? You can find answers to these questions at www.TheWeddingReport.com.

      2. Once you have an idea about how big the market it and how much competition you have, search the internet for words like, "Louisville wedding planner." See what comes up and who your competition is.

      3. If you find a local wedding planner whose website you like, contact them and see if they need an assistant. This is a great way to learn the ropes in the "real world" and start making some contacts with other wedding professionals in your area.

      4. You might also take a position in banquet sales or management at a facility that does a lot of weddings. This is a great way to get experience without the risk involved in starting your own business.

      Honestly, the wedding industry is hurting right now. Wedding planners are suffering the most; when couples trim their budgets, the planner is often the first to go.

      Most wedding planners don't typically make very much to begin with unless they work the very, very high end market. The ones I work with are making ,000 - ,000 for full coordination (which is hard to sell right now) and that is for months of work. It's peanuts for the amount of time they put in.

      I don't know your financial situation, but if you start your own business be prepared to make very little money for at least the first year. If you hit it hard, you might begin making money in the second year. It would make more sense to get a job in a related field (with another planner or in the banquet area) and then start doing event planning on the side.

      Do your research first, figure out how much you need to make and what you can reasonably charge in your market before you start the business. Try to examine the facts before you let your passion for starting your own business take over.

      Good luck!

In market research, one should have a vast knowledge of social sciences, the different business industries, research techniques, and should know how to make use of the internet. Market research is also project management. Aside from the skills, one should have initiative, coordination skills, multi-tasking capabilities and knows how to be a part of a team.

      Basic mathematical skills are not really required. But the knowledge on the basics of Statistics is a must. There are a lot of statistical softwares available at the disposal of a researcher. It is more reliable than doing the analysis manually but the knowledge of Statistics would greatly help in the interpretation of the data. Knowing your data, how it skews and all that would also help you to design better systems in conducting your study. This is so because there are times that you have to decide what statistical tools to use and how you would conduct your surveys.

      SAS and SPSS are two different statistical softwares that are commonly used by researchers. Quantitative analysis is made easy with these softwares because upon the input of the data, the software itself could automatically generate reports both descriptive and inferential depending on what statistical test you want to apply data. Tutorials are also included in the software as well as found online (http://home.ubalt.edu/ntsbarsh/stat-data/SPSSSAS.htm). It is very user friendly and it is made more easier if you already have a background in Statistics.

      There is certainly a lot of opportunities in the market research industry. In the US, according to the Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics there were 22,000 jobs for the said industry. By 2014, it is expected that the employment of market and survey researchers would grow faster than average for all occupations.

      All in all, I think it is not only the preparation of the knowledge and the skills that would fit you in market research. Because with your having a Master s Degree as well as the skills you acquired through the years would really prove invaluable. But it is your commitment and passion for research that would really drive you to succeed in this industry. ***

  50. QUESTION:
    Has anyone received an online degree from an accredited university i.e. a state university?
    I'm looking for advice on obtaining an online marketing degree from a state school. Due to working full time and being relatively far from the nearest university I am considering finishing my degree through Oregon State's online courses. It's a fully accredited school recognised by the CHEA and the U.S Department of Education. Will it show in my records that this degree was obtained online? Will this influence potential employers view of my degree?

    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      With the increase of online learners these days, employers have come around to considering online degrees on the same footing as traditional campus based degrees so you need not worry about your degrees acceptance as long as it is from a reputable and accredited elearning institution. You can read more about this issue at http://www.onlineedublog.com/why-employer%E2%80%99s-have-started-liking-online-education/

      Oregon State University is a highly accredited institution, so I'd say you go for it :)

Website Traffic Hits

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How can I find industrial averages for website traffic volume? ?
    For instance, I'd like to compare a client's website traffic (hits per day) with other comparable sites. (The client is a group of doctors).

    • ANSWER:
      Hope one of these can help you.

  2. QUESTION:
    Is there a site that I can use to check unique site visitors?
    I'm looking to get FREE stats on websites - traffic, unique hits, etc. I've heard of Alexa, but is there anything else?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are going to check stats on YOUR own website, then there are:

      Google Analytics (by far the best) http://www.google.com/analytics
      Statcounter (very limited info) http://www.statcounter.com

      But if you are looking for stats of OTHER websites that you do not own or control, then Alexa is definitely one of the best free source out there. Note though that Alexa's ranking is merely an estimation and not an accurate representation of a site's ranking as it just records those who have downloaded the toolbar.

      Another resource is ranking.com http://www.ranking.com

      If you want to use a more authoritative source, then use Nielsen/Netmedia rankings -- though this is not free and far too expensive

  5. QUESTION:
    How do you automate your website traffic?
    I'm fairly new online and I'm trying to make some money, not much just some extra on the side. I don't want to devote all my spare time to driving traffic to my website, can anyone share how you automate your website traffic?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a ton a ways to automate your website traffic but most take some investment to keep it going and to ensure that it's targeted traffic. Buying hits for instance, just won't convert very well so you're throwing cash out the window, you definately need targeted traffic to ensure what ever effort or money you put in, makes you something back.

      Google Adwords can drive targeted traffic but you better have a serious bankroll to hone your skills with this.

      I hear you about not wanting to spend much time on driving website traffic,especially if you're not in it as a full time income.

      You should take a look at this site, http://viraltraffictsunami.com it is free to join and gives you 10,000 ad credits right away so you can start posting ads ASAP. The beauty of this site is if you get others in, you get credits for their work and so on. You can also mail your downline and it's very easy to use.

      If you don't want to refer people you can pay a small fee to keep your account full of credits so your ads keep showing. They also have a one time fee, you pay and it keeps filling your account with credits every month and you never pay again.

      I used this when I started my list and it really works well, especially if you're giving away a free gift to grow your list, and it has categories so it works for any product, it's pretty cool. This is as close as it get to free targeted traffic that works while you play..

      Once I upgraded, I got a bunch of extra features and my credits just exploded and I still add more ads everyday and get more exposure without any ongoing cost.

      One other thing I liked about this and I'm not sure if it's still available, if you join for free, then send an email to: info @ viraltraffictsunami.com and put "20KFREE" in the subject and add your name and membership ID in the text, they'll add an extra 20,000 ad credits for free for a total of 30,000.

      Now, to me that was a great start and I've been a member since. Check it out, it might just be what you're looking for and it certainly won't take up too much time at all.

      I hope this helps!

  6. QUESTION:
    Can website traffic generating companies help restaurants get website traffic?
    Does buying website traffic prove beneficial for restaurant websites? Can you name a few companies that provide website traffic for restaurants (Chicago area)? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      I myself am leery of traffic generating websites. It is true that your website will receive hits, but much of the traffic sent is computer generated, and therefore very non-beneficial, as well as, a waste of money in most cases.

      I feel it is much better to optimize your website and receive real visitors that could be beneficial to your growth. I know of a very reasonable SEO firm that could possibly help. You can email me if interested in going that route.

      Either way I wish you luck.

  9. QUESTION:
    How to get hits for my website?
    I wrote a story a while ago, and I made a website for it (http://mi7books.co.cc). The problem is, I don't know how to get any hits for the site. I signed up for Google Analytics recently an I found out that on a good day, I can only get 5 hits, with about an 80% bounce rate. How do I actually get website traffic?

    • ANSWER:
      Ok, lets address one point at a time.

      First of all I'd like to mention that the first impression is quite good.

      Then I noticed it wasn't that obvious to find the book's content, which could have exasperated quite a few visitors. I don't see why someone would get a ultra big image of the cover when clicking on it instead of the contents.

      For the bounce rate, this is basically because people aren't interested enough in your home page. You could be (and seem to be) a very talented writer, but marketing skills are needed to grasp people's attention when they get to your site. Intrigue them!

      As for the SEO (search engine optimization):
      - You don't have meta keywords and content which are used by most search engines.
      - All your pages have the same title. This is bad for many reasons. Always try to at least put a couple of relevant words in there.
      - You have very few good incoming links.
      - I'm not sure what kind of arrangement you have for hosting but all your internal links point towards sites.google.com which means you get no credibility for them. If Google's hosting doesn't allow you to do it properly, you should get a new web host. There are tons of them and your site could be placed on free ones.

  10. QUESTION:
    What's the best to promote a new website that's inexpensive?
    How would you promote a new website that's inexpensive and gurateed to give your website traffic, orders, hits and business? Who is the best service online for this kind of stuff? How soon do you get results from them? How much money do you make in your first month with them? is there such a service online? if so who are they?what's their prices like? Do they do it for a year or longer?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want the whole thing -- traffic, orders and business -- then you need to think of two things:

      (a) Getting TARGETED traffic to your site (no "100,000 hits for .99 trafficswarm methods") and

      (b) Improving your site to CONVERT these visitors to buyers.

      Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it's easier said than done.

      You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

      Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

      1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

      2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more - that's additional traffic that you get for FREE!

      Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
      CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

      3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

      If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

      4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as 0 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

      http://www.free-press-release.com/

      5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

      Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

      6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article " How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site " http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

      7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

      Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
      Google Base http://base.google.com
      Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/...
      Text Link Exchange http://www.txtswap.com/
      Recycler.com http://www.recycler.com/
      Yahoo Classifieds http://classifieds.yahoo.com/
      US Free Ads http://www.usfreeads.com/

  11. QUESTION:
    How do website hits equate to advertising revenue?
    For example if I have a website that gets 1000 hits per day how much does that equate to in advertising revenue? I understand there is pay per click and pay per view, i am just after an idea of what is possible. Also could i sell the space myself?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      This is just an EXTREME guess.

      But a good "click-through" rate is between 1-3% of your traffic.

      So let's say you have 1000 good visits a day.

      2% click on your ads. (20 people)

      Each ad is worth $.50. You make .

      So realistically, depending on your click-through rate and cost per click, you could potentially make anywhere from -25 bucks a day.

      Good luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    How can I find out the amount of traffic that a website gets?
    Is there a way to find out how much traffic (or hits) that any site gets?

    • ANSWER:
      NO, unless you have access to the site's web analytics software.

      Or the site has signed up to open source Quantcast.com http://www.quantcast.com -- those that says the site is "Quantified Publisher) which means that the site actually put the tracking code of Quantcast on their pages

      Or the site has a media kit online and they state in their media kit how much traffic their site gets

      Software such as Alexa.com or Ranking.com and others are only estimates -- often so wrong -- because they are based only on the people who have downloaded their toolbar. So if only 10% of your audience have downloaded the Alexa toolbar, you can't expect Alexa to actually reflect your real traffic

  14. QUESTION:
    How do you check website traffic of companies sites?
    I dont understand alexa.com is there another site like alexa.com that shows you the traffic counts, like 1000 hits a day, or 206K hits on that day, just plain dummy language?

    • ANSWER:
      As per my analysis, After Alexa Compete Web Site Traffic Tool are better to see traffic of any website.

  15. QUESTION:
    How to increase my website traffic without the long waiting list?
    I created a website that has up to 250 hits but the only problem I have is the low traffic. My site contain a homework helper and a link to ACT and SAT college test also to help find scholarships. How do I create traffic on a broader scale without being on the google, yahoo and MSN waiting list to be part of there search engine?

    • ANSWER:
      Keep it simple to start:
      first, add Google Analytics to your site so you can see what is going on....
      second, add a site map which the search engines will pick up then adjust.

      and another

      http://sitemaps.org/protocol.php

  16. QUESTION:
    How important is site traffic to page rank?
    Do the search algorithms take into account the amount of traffic (visits or hits) to a website?

    How heavily is this weighted?
    Hmmm...

    I have one NO and one YES?

    • ANSWER:
      Site traffic is irrelevant to PageRank. PageRank is a mathematical formula only. You can read about it on Wikipedia.

      About the statistic you are asking for, search engines measure traffic by something called CTR (click-through rate). How is it weighed, however, is impossible to know, as any search engine company ever reveals that secret.

      Anyone who states opposite, lies.

      Hope this helps.

  17. QUESTION:
    What are the most important traffic statistics of a website?
    In looking at my report of my website's traffic, I wonder what is most important and telling? The report includes Traffic stats such as sessions, pageviews, hits, then details on Visitors such as by day, unique, loyalty. And there is also reports on pages & files, navigation, referrals, etc. What should I focus on in this lengthy summary report?

    • ANSWER:
      All metrics are important -- what matters is what you do with those metrics.

      Take for example pageviews: this is a crucial metrics especially if you are selling advertising space on your site. The more pageviews you get, the higher the chances of earning more from advertising. The question now is: how do you increase pageviews per visit?

      As to the pages viewed by the users. If you have an information site, then this metric could tell you that this is the topic that interests your users. If you have an ecommerce site, your next question is: how are the top pages converting and turning to sales?

      It's not just a matter of looking at a single metric. It is looking at the combination of metrics, even all the ratios -- and then trying to understand the behavior of your users in order to improve your site performance

  18. QUESTION:
    Is there a way to get website stats for other websites?
    Is there a way to find out details re. traffic, hits, page views, etc. for a website that is not your own website? Ideally a free site that gives some basic info as trying to get some comparisons for a specific site against others selling similar products.

    Thanks!

  19. QUESTION:
    How do you promote your website for free?
    Have nanny service and want to promote website to get hits. Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      You want quality hits. I'm assuming that your business is within a certain locale, which means that getting placed in a broad category such as "nanny service" on Google or Yahoo's search engine is going to yield a lot of garbage traffic. You may want to focus on regional search engine ranking terms like "your city nanny service" (with your city being where you are located). I won't go into how to get listed and ranked in search engines here because it's beyond the scope of the this forum. If you want to get ranked in the search engines, I suggest you do some homework or hire someone. Also get listed on dmoz.org. A lot of people pull their directory content from dmoz--including Google. This means you'll get listed on a lot of web sites just by being in dmoz. Also look for web sites that make a natural fit for your service locally, and ask to do a link exchange. This helps in two ways. First you are listed on a targeted web site where you will get direct traffic, and secondly it helps your overall search ranking to have more sites linked to your site. In addition, look for free listing sites to post a listing--like as someone else mentioned craigslist.org--there are more of these types of sites out there. Also, this sounds obvious, but make sure your url is on every piece of business collateral and advertising you put out there. Another thing you should do is use the power of word of mouth. Tell everyone you meet and talk to locally about the web site (this is where an easy to remember url comes in handy), as well as every business conversation you have you should mention your web site. You never know who will tell whom about your site. And finally, talk to the business editor of your local paper(s) and/or business magazine and try and get a story written on your web site and/or business. If your town is small enough you can also talk to your local TV stations into doing a story on you. Most small market stations have small business spotlight segments. This all comes from years of experience in working with small business clients. My additional advice would be that you spend a little money and join your local chamber of commerce. They often provide free member listings on their web site as well as providing network to help market your business amongst other business people.

  23. QUESTION:
    Is there a chart that tells how much website traffic hits equals how much advertising revenue?
    If not, where can I find this info? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      NO - there's no such thing. While traffic is one of the factors that can help a website earn from advertising, it is NOT the only factor. In some cases, traffic is not even the most important determinant of advertising income

      Take for example the contextual advertising program Google Adsense. One website with 10,000 visitors a day can earn a month while another with the same level of traffic may earn ,000. There is no way to predict how much a site can earn from advertising

      Here are the factors determining income from advertising:

      - Type of advertising program -- Banner ads earning via cost per impression will definitely benefit from huge traffic, while contextual advertising depends on factors other than traffic

      - Type of visitors the site attracts -- a site that attracts venture capitalists and CEOs can charge more for advertising than a site on online games that gets 1000x more traffic. Even with a much smaller audience, the first site can earn more from advertising than the second site that gets more traffic

      - Responsiveness of users to ads -- Advertisers want ROI, and they will advertise again and again to sites that give them the best return on their investment. And that means spending money where they get the best returns, typically where the audience is more responsive to ads.

      - Implementation of the ads -- sites running cost per click (CPC) and cost per action (CPA) ads will earn more if they optimize their website much better and if they know how to place the ads in such a way to get the best response from visitors

      - Branding of the site -- a site with smaller traffic but gets frequent media mentions and enjoys a stronger brand can charge more for their advertising than a site that gets better traffic numbers.

      Traffic is a factor in how much you earn from advertising -- but it is not the only factor for determining how much you will earn. Of course, with more traffic, you stand a better chance of earning more revenues especially if you have the other factors working for you as well

  24. QUESTION:
    What should I do once my website gets to many hits?
    Which is the safest route to take once my website gets to much traffic. What service should I feel most comfortable with for a reasonable price? Will I need to purchase a personal server?

    • ANSWER:
      There's never such a thing as too many hits. The more, the better. It means your site is being seen by more and more people and moving up in the ranks.

      If you are still using a free hosting website, you might consider one that you pay for. I use Surpass hosting and it's a month with lots of space, emails, etc. You don't want to purchase a personal server as they are very expensive and will probably be a long way off. When you're getting as big as Amazon.com, then you'll need a personal server.

  25. QUESTION:
    What should I do to generate more website hits?
    I have a political blog that I want to generate more hits. What listings or rings should I join? I don't mind linking back to some respected things like that, but I don't want to clog my website with annoying advertisements.

    • ANSWER:
      First, instead of thinking about hits, you want to concentrate on targeted traffic. This is traffic that's looking for you.

      Submit to the RSS and blog directories. (See below).

      Tag your posts and submit to Technorati. (Make sure you claim your blog).

      Make it easy for your visitors to subscribe to your site using your RSS feed, as well as a subscription box on your site.

      Also, allow your visitors to bookmark your site.

      If you do these things in the order I listed them, you'll get plenty of traffic.

      Also, ping your blog using a ping service. This lets the blog directories know you've updated your blog and your blog will go to the top for awhile.

      Finally, don't forget to submit to the top three search engines. Most forget to do that, and if you wait until they find you, it could be months before your site gets spidered.

  26. QUESTION:
    How many ways can money be made through online traffic or hits?
    I've heard of the youtube partner program and I've heard of potential ways to make money from AdSense, but what other websites or techniques are there?

    • ANSWER:
      There are lots of ways to make money online. A lot of it depends on how creative you are.
      Some examples include:
      Affiliate marketing: advertising/selling others goods and services
      Advertising: Putting ads on your site (such as adsense ads, banner ads, etc)
      You can get paid for blogging about certain companies
      You can sell products, or services (directly, drop ship, etc) Some people sell information products
      You create a membership site people subscribe to
      You can get people to submit their email addresses and put out a newsletter and charge for advertising

      These are just some ideas

  28. QUESTION:
    How do I remove a dead link to my website from the yahoo search engine?
    I just started a website, and recently updated it right after it got listed. Now one of the pages I just took off is still showing up in search results, leading to a dead link. I want to make sure people don't go to that link, so how should I take it off?

    • ANSWER:
      Rather than taking it off, add a 301 permanent redirect (in your hosting cpanel) so that whenever anyone hits the now dead page it will automatically forward to the right page (or homepage if you don't have that content anymore).

      If you have a ranked URL it makes more sense to leave it and forward the traffic than try to get it out of the search engines.

      http://www.webconfs.com/how-to-redirect-a-webpage.php will show you how to add a 301 redirect depending on how your site is currently set up, hosting etc.

      Good luck!

  29. QUESTION:
    How to advertise your online store, to gain more traffic and sells?
    Hello, the website is: http://dtesolar.ca
    and the online store is: http://dtesolar.ca/store

    The business is about solar power, solar energy, rooftop installations and selling some LED light bulbs.

    Can anyone give me some suggestions for promote the online store?

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Don't fall for the guys claiming 1000's of hits/day or the one that claims theirs is "the best". I did it myself, now I have a firm I pay to do it. You need sales, not traffic. Anyone can get you traffic, but you can't take that to the store and buy groceries.

      Go to Google, Yahoo and Bing and look at PPC campaigns and key word use.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is a great and legal way to advertise my website link?
    I have a website or beauty products and need to build up my customers. Does anyone have any idea?

    • ANSWER:
      You need to focus on two important things:

      - get TARGETED traffic to your site - not just any visitors, but visitors who are likely to be interested in your products (so avoid those 100,000-hits-for-.99 types of schemes)
      - CONVERT those visitors into buyers - given that you worked so hard to get those visitors, make sure that they buy

      You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

      Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

      1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

      2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more - that's additional traffic that you get for FREE!

      Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
      CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

      3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

      If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

      4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as 0 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

      5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

      Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

      6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article " How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site " http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

      7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

      Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
      Google Base http://base.google.com
      Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/...

  31. QUESTION:
    What are the best ways to get a website to appear on the first page of a search?
    Does anyone have any good ideas as to how we can maximise the potential of our website? Is it based on how many visitors go to the site, or how we set up the website, or what? Is it to do with key words, and if so, how do we put those keywords into the system? Confused!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hope this helps you:

      Google does not accept payment for inclusion in their main index so anyone that s at the top is there through hard work and perseverance, or through paying a company such as [my company name removed so I don't flout advertising guidelines!] to do the hard work for you.

      Below I show you 7 great ways to increase your chances of a Google ranking.

      The Basics
      Ensure that your website has a clear navigation system and by that I mean that the reader of your website can get to every main page of your website, from every other page. There s nothing more annoying as a user of a website than finding yourself lost in the middle of a site with no way to find other information other than using the back button. A search engine spider (the program that the search engine uses to index your site) doesn t have a back button so will just give up.

      Check the links in your site broken links will also stop a spider in its tracks.

      Try not to use text contained in graphics or images spiders can t read these either.

      Don t use the front page of your website to automatically redirect the viewer to another page. The spider sees this as spam, and in Google this can get your site banned!

      Content Is King
      It s said all the time, but it s true. Think of the phrases you would like people to type into the search engines to find your site and include them in the copy of the site. At heart, a search engine is just a database and works quite logically make it easy for the spider to know what your site is about. (However, beware of repeating phrases too often on your page this is seen as spam and will be detrimental to your listing. Aim for no more than 3 times on a 100 word page)

      Headlines
      Once you have a list of phrases you would like to use to promote your site, use them as titles on each page of your site. Inside Business Northampton might have pages titled in ways such as Business Promotion Northampton Inside Business and Advertising Northants Inside Business .

      Choose two or more word phrases to increase your chances of good listings the less people you re competing against, the more chance you have in a short amount of time.

      The Links Effect
      Google is quite unique in that it sees sites with lots of links back to them as quite important. The more links you have from well-trafficked sites, the higher PR level it gives you. Although this isn t the be all and end all of getting high listings, it is helpful.

      If you re a printing company, approach other related businesses (such as companies offering corporate gifts) with websites and ask them to link to you, making the text for your link one of your key phrases (e.g. printers in Northampton)

      If you can get links to your site from sites that are already in Google listings, then you have more chance of being indexed quickly.

      Directories
      Submit your website to the Yahoo Directory and the Open Directory Project both of these sites directly filter their results into Google and increase your chances of getting into Google listings. For an article on submitting to the Open Directory Project, please click here.

      Submission
      Don t forget to submit your site to Google directly! It s amazing how many people forget this simple thing.

      It s true that Google is great at picking up sites without them being submitted, by following links from other sites, trawling the web, etc, but the sure fire way of making sure that they know about your site is by visiting the Add URL page on Google Itself.

      Patience is a Virtue
      Results don t happen overnight. Google can take between 6 and 18 weeks to even LIST your site, and then longer to move it up the listings for the phrases you want.

      It s time consuming and can be hit and miss when you re learning but ANYONE can learn to get a site to the top of Google don t listen to those that tell you it s impossible.

  32. QUESTION:
    Is 150 unique web site hits a day worth anything to advertisers?
    I have a web site that has been averaging about 150 unique hits a day. During one week it even had 100,000 hits in one week but am now getting a solid 150 unique hits, 200 page loads per day. Is that worth anything to advertisers because it certainly isn't worth crap with Google AdSense.

    • ANSWER:
      Dear You,

      Let me help you value your website traffic from an AdSense perspective.

      Given an average revenue from AdSense estimated at - per 1,000 page impressions, your traffic is worth between and .5 per month.

      Explanation:

      150 page impressions/day = 4,500/month (150 * 30)

      * (4,500/1,000) =
      * (4,500/1,000) = .5

      The preceding notwithstanding, you may want to increase your website traffic though. Here are some ways to build long-lasting traffic:

      1. Implement search engine optimization (SEO) best practices to meet demand (visitors' searches) with an offer (unique content) [see the source section below for the link to the self-explanatory "Google's SEO Starter Guide"].

      2. Make sure search engines are fully aware of your site and pages by managing proactively the relationship with them (see my answer to "How to add your webpage to search engine?" in the source section below).

      3. Create a profile for your business in search engines' local business directories (this one is also part of the "How to add your webpage to search engine?"). You should provide info for ALL the fields to have your profile flagged as complete, and most importantly a link to your website.

      4. Leverage social media. Create an account in platforms like Facebook and Twitter, start a blog, and keep up the good work by making all of them grow. Search forums the most overlooked social place for post related to your business. Bookmark your site for specific topics/tags in sharing platforms like Digg and Delicious. You can also add the ShareThis widget to your site as a wrap of all the social features enumerated above.

      5. (This may not be an option for you because you may incur more expenses than budget invested) Start a Pay-per-Click (PPC) campaign like Google AdWords or Yahoo Paid Search. It's really affordable for local businesses. Indeed, it may cost you a strong suggestion from my own experience a max daily budget of to generate 5-10 clicks a day, which coupled with a coupon-based ad campaign e.g., 15% off your next purchase of equipment would allow you to measure accurately your campaign ROI. And furthermore, you'll have fun.

  33. QUESTION:
    How often should I submit my website to search engines?
    So that it is effective and I am getting a good amount of traffic?

    How many different search engines should I be submitting to?

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest looking at and submitting to around 200 or so search engines if you are doing it on your own. You can check out any search engines ranking based on usage (traffic/hits/Etc) at alexa.com to help you decide the best search engines to submit to. Note: Interesting that Yahoo has the most hits of any search engines, not Google. After doing your homework and deciding who to submit to, you may want to also look at "pay per click" advertising. The first place to go is Overture.com to look at what key wordsa are being searched. Ovwerture will also allow you to view the current bids for the key words that make the best choice for your website content. I believe Yahoo is offering of free clicks just to get you to use the product and see your return on your investment with them. Another place to look at would be trafficleader.com. This company is on the board of directors for Yahoo and they actually write the "secret Codes" (algorythmns) that positions you in the natural results.

      Linking to other websites is definitley a plus to drive more traffic to you. Look for other business partners that serve your prospects. For example, if you sold windshield wipers, you could partner with aomeone that sold other auto parts or even similar industries like a car club. Use that same networking from the real world into the virtual world. If you would like to find some strong networking groups locally check out www.bni.com - If you only have time to network with one group, go here first and then your chambers second.

      I would also tell you to get some advertising on yellowpages.com. This is an online yellowpages and they are getting over one billion hits per year. They have partnered with AOL, Yahoo, anywho, switchboard.com and many other sites that your advertising bleeds over into. They also have a link next to your name that will link the consumer directly to your website. Remember these people have already made a decission to BUY and are looking for someone to SELL it to them, unlike a search engine that is usually used for people that MAY BUY.

      Here is another site I would suggest to you that may help- www.gosmallbiz.com. This site has experts in the fields of marketing, online marketing, Human Resorces, insurance or anything that a small business would have questions about.

      One last gold nugget- make sure your website was NOT designed in "frames"...Its hard to the search engine spiders to index.

      I hope this helps! Best wishes!

  35. QUESTION:
    How do i get investors to want to advertise on my website?
    Lets say i have a website, and i want other businesses to advertise on my website. How do i go about doing that?

    • ANSWER:
      You need to be able to show traffic and demographics.

      People who advertise want to know who they're advertising to, that is demographics. A Hip Hop music label will not advertise on the AARP website. That is not who they sell to.

      Traffic will tell them what your website is worth in terms of advertising dollars. How many hits per day, how many unique hits from people who have never been there before.

      If you have a website you need to show them the site, how its marketed, the links to the site, how you keep the content fresh so that people will return.

      How is the model formulated. Will you have flat fees for banner ads or be paid on a click thru method.

      All these things you'll need to know before selling space on your site. You need to know how much space you have to sell and at what price in order for you to break even. You'll have to do a cost analysis for that.

  36. QUESTION:
    How many hits does an average site get per month?
    I have 18 sites that I haven't been released to the search engines yet, but together they're up over 100,000 hits this month / maybe about 6000 visits. Is this low medium or high? And I know I'm not being too informative but I'm just asking in relatively general terms. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      6,000 visits divided by 18 is 333 roughly, for each one, per month.
      It's not great. But then I haven't seen your websites. If you have made no traffic increasing efforts then that is quite good. It really depends on the amount of efforts you have presently put in and how good your sites are.
      And of course, how long the sites have been up is relevant here. Are we talking months or years?
      My site http://www.website-copy-writer.com has been up for about two months. I am making efforts to increase my traffic and I put a lot of effort into my content, i.e. I aim to really put valuable content on the site. I currently get 336 visitors a month. Which isn't great but I am increasing it bit by bit.

  37. QUESTION:
    Can I advertise my absensed based website on classified websites? Like Monster or craigslist?
    I just finished building my absensed website and I know Google is against certain types of advertising like spam emails,clicking on your own ads and trying to courage or deceive people to click on their ads. My main promotions is classifieds.I see other absense advertisements on some classified sites but I want to make sure.Do anyone know if this is okay and other ways to promote google absense besides google adwords.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, it is Adsense, not absense :o )

      Classified ads are ok with Google as a means of getting traffic to your site. What Google does not like are sources that bring in "low quality traffic" -- and that includes those "100,000 hits for .99", trafficswarm and similar types.

      But of course it really depends on how the ad network defines "low quality traffic". Yahoo Publisher Network http://publisher.yahoo.com which is the equivalent of Adsense, in fact considers traffic from MySpace to be low quality and some publishers complain they've been terminated from YPN because their sites get a lot of traffic from MySpace.

      Just read their Program Policies of Adsense carefully to make sure you stay within the guidelines

  38. QUESTION:
    How much money can a website make according to traffic?
    So, if (I know this isn't accurate, just an example) a website gets 2000 hits a month, how much money would it generate in advertising revenue? If the traffic doubles, will the money double as well? I have an idea for a website, its different, but as a startup, I want to make pro forma financial statements, and I need an estimate of revenue. I'll estimate traffic myself, but I need a traffic-to-revenue ratio.

    Any other advice would be helpful, thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      A site earning ad revenue may earn roughly 2 pennies per unique visitor. You case may be unpredictable.

      It sounds like you are offering a service so it's really more a matter of what percentage of visitors convert to buying customers. The quality of traffic is an enormous factor, some paid traffic service might send you robots or people who don't speak you language who at any rate are not interested in your service. Carefully targeted ads or ideally matching search keyword searches bring you much higher quality prospects, a regular sales site typically gets one sale for every 25 to 100 QUALIFIED visitors.

  39. QUESTION:
    How much does a website getting 150,000 hits/month make in revenue?
    I was wondering how much a website getting about 150k in traffic each month make in advertising revenue, etc.? It would be about 1.8 hits a year.

    • ANSWER:
      It depends how much the companies being advertised were paying. For the argument's sake, let's say in total for each view you were getting payed 1 cent. That's 0.01 x 1,800,000 = 000 annually. Minus your tax would be your answer. For example, if you were paying 30 cents tax, it would be 0.70 x 18000 = 600 annually.
      This is probably no where near accurate, but this is the maths you use to find out. Hope this helps. :)

  40. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to get traffic to your website?
    I have a fast pay click website but no the problem is getting people to view it. What is the best way to get views to my site?

    • ANSWER:
      I've found that there is no one "best" way to get people to view your website but there are certain strategies you MUST employ and a variety you can delve into to promote your site on the web.

      First off you should try and use some free ways of accumulating traffic. The most fundamental one initially is search engine optimization (SEO). Essentially this means editing the layout and content of your site to be noticed more by the search engines. It is important to do this before submitting your sites to the search engines and directories.

      Find a book about it here http://seobook.com
      Find a free course about it here http://addtrafficnow.com/course.html

      This means that the domain must be yours totally and can be manipulated by you to fix certain parts of your html code (I advise you to do this yourself) or you can hire someone to do it for you. Just type in "seo consultant" or "seo firm" in Google.

      The parts of the html code you need to edit are the portions known as the head of the document. Here you need to place some targeted keywords and phrases as well as a well targeted title and description for your site so the search engines can crawl your site more effectively. This is just the tip of the iceberg on seo.......but refer to the sources for other details.

      Other free ways to get traffic include:

      1. Ensuring the site has good content that is updated regularly. That's the only way that visitors will remain on the site and also return for updated parts of it.

      2. You must build links from other similar websites especially those which are already considered authorities in your field by Google. It is your link popularity which will help to determine how well you rank in the various search engines.
      Try the link exchange group Link Metro http://www.linkmetro.com

      3. Participate in forums and discussion boards. However don't just choose any group, ensure it is used by people who would be interested in your website's product or sevice. Also in your signature for the groups place a resource box with a link to your site.

      4. Write articles based off whatever content your site is related to and submit them to article directories.
      eg. http://articlesbase.com
      http://articlecity.com
      http://goarticles.com
      http://amazines.com
      The key here is that at the end of your article you'll have an about the author box with a link to your site there.

      5. Joining safelists and sending mass messages to people who might be in your target market telling them about your website, product or service. The key here is to join many not just one. Be careful to use a "junker" email address for your list email if you won't be interested in other people's offers because you'll be receiving a lot of additional mail
      Some good ones to start you off are:
      The Mad Vlad http://www.themadvlad.com
      Ad Solution Line http://www.adsolutionline.com
      Ad Tactics http://www.adtactics.com
      Safelister http://www.safelister.com
      Business World List http://www.businessworldlist.com

      6. Sending announcements on free for all (FFA) sites and classifieds ad sites.

      7. Use traffic exchanges which ask you to browse through other websites in their network and depending on how often you surf you receive back visitors to you own site
      Examples of some exchanges are:
      TrafficSwarm http://www.trafficswarm.com
      Traffic G http://www.trafficg.com
      I Love Hits http://www.ilovehits.com
      Hit safari http://www.hitsafari.com
      Advertising Know How http://www.advertisingknowhow.com

      8. An innovative way to grab some more visitor's attention is to make a video about something related to your website an
      upload it to video sharing networks. eg Youtube http://www.youtube.com. Even if you just place it on your own website it will be an eye-catching way of keeping visitors glued to your site

      Other ways to advertise and promote your site where you may have to pay some money:

      1. Advertising in ezines (there are some free ezines but unless you advertise in a bunch of them per week you won't get much increase in visitors) which have a target audience similar to who would visit your website. Use google to search for some good ones.

      2. Paying search engines eg. Google and Yahoo! Search Marketing for links you place on their sites based off whatever keywords/phrases are related to your site. These Pay-Per-Clicks (PPCs) will provide you with targeted audience because people only click on your site because they're interested in whatever product/service you offer.

      3. Most of the free offers mentioned before usually have a paid component to them to increase usage of the system. If you're going to pay for any, try the safelists first especially if your site has something to do with computers and internet marketing.

      4. Most of the free offers also have some software or company that will be able to blast more ads to more than one network at a time. Some I've found useful are
      Ezine Blasters
      Safelist Blasters
      FFA Blasters
      Search engine Blasters

      5. You can create banners for you business/ website and pay to place them on other websites (There are some free banner exchange programmes also)

  41. QUESTION:
    What is the difference between website hits and website visits?
    I found it on web statistics are they same or different if different what is it.

    • ANSWER:
      HIT: This is a (poor) method of measuring Website traffic. A hit is registered each time a browser request is made from a web server. If you have a web page containing four graphics, each page display will count as five hits.

      VISITs: This is the number of individuals who visit your site in a defined time. If 100 people visit your site today, that is 100 unique visitors. If one person visits your site 100 times, that is one unique visitor.

  42. QUESTION:
    How to build a database driven website with user login and sales tracker.?
    I have minimal knowledge on database building. The website I am creating will require a database to store customer usernames and passwords, to include previous purchase history with my website. If anyone knows a good tutorial of where I can find the information needed, I would greatly appreciate the enlightenment.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey John,

      I'll admit, I don't know alot about database building, but...

      I use SBI (Site Build It!) and my website is extremely successful for it's first year.

      I'm assuming you know "techie language", and a site-builder seems like a tool for newbies. You can definitely upload your own HTML and it comes with really powerful tools that most web designers don't even have access to.

      So basically, you may have to upload a third party subdomain to accomplish the database part (they highly recommend this one service that works together great with SBI! that can handle what your looking for, but I can't remember what it's called.)

      And they really teach you how to rank super high in the search engines (they have a countless number of customers that hit the top 1 percentile of internet traffic)

      I did an un-biased review on my website about SBI and I think it's worth checking out..(watch the 2 1/2 minute video)

      If it's not for you, I wish you the best of luck. Web design can be pretty complicated doing it the old fashioned way.

  43. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to get affordable, targeted web traffic?
    I have a web site for my local transporation service that get's about 800 hits per month and generates many new customers. I'm trying to do the same thing with a site in the vitamin industry. Key words are much more competative and expensive. Any sugesstions?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      Yes 800 hits a day is a good one, but you did not specify whether you are getting them via PPC or organic search engines. Now I am assuming they came via SEO - then what you need to do for the vitamin website is to replicate the success of the first site for the vitamin site.

      It is true that the vitamin industry is highly competitive but best thing is for you to locate tight NICHE in the industry. How do you achieve this?

      For both PPC and organic search engine marketing, simply enter a broad keyword e.g. VITAMIN into a good keyword tool and search for major keywords of your choice and further dig down until you find low competition, high volume keywords.

      And there 1,000s of such keywords in every industry that people don't know about. The SEO remain the most affordable (FREE) way to get high quality traffic to your site. Read more ideas below:

  44. QUESTION:
    Who exactly pays me when my website has huge traffic? How do I win money from the traffic?
    I launch a site, i get 10,000 visits per day, who pays me? How do I earn money from the traffic I have? Where the money come from?
    THank you a lot!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Nobody's going to PAY you; you might get a little money from advertisers if they think you site gets lots of hits, but it's a chicken-and-egg situation, where you have to get lots of visitors before you can earn money from advertisers but you need money to make your site attractive enough to get the visitors. In fact, if you get lots of hits, your web hosting site might charge you more.

  45. QUESTION:
    Which is the best website for ranking the strength of Perfumes & Deodorants available on sale?
    Am into the habit of buying and using very strong perfumes that silently make heads turn towards you. However i don't know which website is best for ranking their strength or smell. Or which site has the best prices comparisons for the various perfumes being made and sold.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have a website, and you have a great product to sell, your main concern is to get your website to the point where you make money from it. How can you make money if your site is not getting any traffic?

      It used to be hard to get traffic to your site. You had to spend a ton of money to get your website set up to take the orders, and then another bunch of money to get traffic to your website. You don't have to do that anymore. Why not? I have a powerful, effective technique that if followed will guarantee your hit counter will exploded, and just in 15 minutes.

      I created a 15 minute five-step process that will catapult your hit counter. It will be like looking at your electric meter when you run the air conditioner. The only difference, the counter that is turning is your hit counter. And this means a heavy amount of traffic to your site. And do you know what happens when you get a heavy amount of traffic to your site? If your sales copy is written properly, you will gain a ton of sales. Isn't that what you want? Isn't that why you built your website for to begin with?

      Why have a non-productive website when it can be making untold amount of money for you. All you need to start it is by getting traffic to your site. And I solved that problem for you as well. Take a look at my super powerful program and you will find your hits skyrocket to the roof, even within 15 minutes.

      I know it works because I have a friend who owns three websites. He wasn't't seeing much traffic to any of them. As such, he wasn't't making any money. When he tried my super powerful program, not only did his traffic increase to all his websites, but he also started making tons of money. If he can do it so can you.

      Don't waste another day watching your hit counter slowly increase when you can watch your hit counter turn at the speed of light.

  46. QUESTION:
    What metrics are available to estimate the value of monetizing eyeballs on a website?
    I'm working on a business plan for a website with 170,000 unique users per month (355,000 sessions) with an average session length of 9 minutes. The site is in the healthcare field. I'd like to estimate potential revenue from advertising sales either directly or via AdSense.

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, that's a fantastic opportunity!!!

      I've looked around extensivly for some of my own sites that only draws a fraction of traffic you will be getting hit with.
      The only public metrics I've seen have been from Search Engine results that show % visibility via eyeball tracking: http://www.enquiro.com/eye-tracking-pr.asp

      What you're specifically looking for isn't publiclly available. Even if something similar was available, every website is unique. You may need to contact the advertising publisher directly to see if they can give you any specifics.

  47. QUESTION:
    How can I optimize my website to download faster?
    I am designing a website and some pages take way too long to load. Especially since I am expecting high traffic rates and I know that my website would slow to a crawl if it was getting a couple hundred hits a day.

    I know about using CSS instead of HTML to load images, and I know about making CSS files as small as possible, but that hardly makes it faster.

    Also, which is the fastest way to display identical content on several pages? IFRAME, or PHP Include statement?

    • ANSWER:
      Exactly how to optimize your website depends largely on what it's doing, though there are some generally accepted guidelines. If you expect that only a few hundred hits a day will bring your site to its knees, you've got some work ahead of you.

      Keep in mind that a website that contains dynamic content will always be slower than static HTML content. The difference is pretty trivial these days, though for a large, resource intensive application, it can become quickly noticeable.

      That said, unless you're working with obscenely massive CSS files, you won't realize much difference by reducing their size. Also keep in mind that the main benefit to server-side-includes (PHP or otherwise) is reusability, not performance. I typically avoid the IFRAME construct, unless there is a highly compelling reason to use it (displaying external content that is unavailable via any other transport, for example).

      So, what are your options? There are a few:

      1. Choose your hosting provider wisely. This may seem like a no-brainer, but may people skimp here, which can only hurt you. That doesn't mean that you have to pay an arm and a leg for a shared hosting account, but the old adage of "you get what you pay for" still applies. A well designed, reliable hosting infrastructure can make all the difference in the world.

      2. As previously mentioned, optimize images used on the site. Images used on a website should be 72dpi, and -- in most circumstances -- don't need to be maximum quality.

      3. Limit the number of other large, binary resources displayed on each page. If you're loading several large images, Flash movies, etc,. it's going to have a negative impact for users on all but the fastest connections.

      4. Implement caching for infrequently changing dynamic content and/or expensive resources. Say, for example, you have a web page that accesses a web service to display stock information to the user. Accessing an external web service is typically an "expensive" operation in terms of performance. And since most financial feeds are delayed by 15 minutes anyways, it doesn't make sense to query the service every time a user hits the page. Depending on your specific application, you may or may not be able to cache your data, but I have built applications that keep information cached in memory for a month or more.

      5. Limit round trips to the database. Database access (and especially transactional writes) are one of the most expensive operations you can perform. Access your database only when absolutely necessary (see #4 above), Don't reload rows from the database on postback unless they've changed. When possible, spawn a separate worker thread or use AJAX to interact with the database so that the user is less aware of the latency.

      6. Avoid direct file system access in your scripts. File system access is notoriously slow. Avoid interacting with the web server file system whenever you can, and when you can't, use worker threads, message queuing, AJAX, or other tricks to make such operations (appear) as asynchronous as possible.

      Hope this helps, and good luck with your website!

  48. QUESTION:
    How do you get your website to appear at the top of the list of Google searches?
    How do you promote your website so that it appears in the first page of entries when you perform a search on Google or similar search engine?

    Thanks for your help!!!

    • ANSWER:
      You may want to consider some simple algorithms which, when observed and committed in designing of a website with placement of various critical metatags that can surely achieve a high search engine presence and increase Internet traffic to your website. These metatag strategies work well with published webpages at Google and Yahoo.

      Design: Should you create an extensive Flash-based website, make sure to fill-in the property entries such as the Title, Description and Keywords. Failing to do so, leaves no hard HTML or ALT resource that can be readily indexed by search robots.

      A non-Flash-based website which relies on hard text, is far easier to be indexed by search robots. Limit the use of stylized text saved as .gifs since as a graphic, they are not indexable by search robots.

      Avoid use of frames since any number of search robots are unable to properly classify textual material.

      Placement of Metatags:

      A ranking or search order does take place with Google and Yahoo and it begins with the "Title" metag which should consist of no more than 65 characters separated by commas. The "Title" should describe in generic terms, the goods and services, followed by a location from which the resource is located, i.e., city, state. The placement of a domain name which is not generic within the "Title" is not appropriate, unless your domain name is a major recognizable brand name.

      The second metatag is the "Description" which is usually 25-30 words to form a complete sentence which best describes one's goods and services.

      And the very last category - "Keywords" are also somewhat limited to 15-16 words which can be plural and compound in nature.

      Here's a demonstration of an actual FIRST PAGE placement on Google's search engine with the submission of very "generic" set of key word queries:
      1. Go to Google's search engine.
      2. At the search entry, type in the words "ecommerce tutorials seo" [and of course, leave out the quotes ["]
      3. Hit "Enter."
      4. There will appear some 1.67 MILLION search results.
      5. Check out the No. 2 search entry "Welcome to Downtown L.A." which currently uses the above-referenced algorithms to achieve their FIRST PAGE position.

      Good luck!

  2. QUESTION:
    How is affiliate marketing? Is it another smoke screen to sell useless guides to desperate people?
    I am desperate to find a way to start my own home based business, and affiliate marketing seems good because there is virtually no startup cost (I'm broke). Is this something likely to bring in a real income?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know anyone who is affiliated in affiliated marketing. So I can't really answer that. but I do know, that you wouldn't be owning your own business unless you invest money into it. By means of a start up cost, or buying products yourself and re selling them, advertisement or something along those lines. Owning a business is not free. I wrote some things down that might help you to see for yourself if this is a good business to get involved in, using my business as an example. If on the list it checks out (you may have to do some research) but if it all checks out, then you can chose to do it. IF it's a business, don't just try it. You need to devote time and effort into it and build it. If your going to just try a business, you will most likely fail! So here's a few things that you should take a look at before getting involved in any company.
      1. How long have they been in business? We checked to see how long our company was around, at the time it was nine years old and now it's 15. Do you know when they started? If it's under 5 years, then their is a risk factor
      2. Are they registered with the BBB. Ours is registered. I think this is important one.
      3. Who's involved with the company? Like in ours Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki has endorsed our company. Many actors and actresses, business owners, government officials etc use our products. Check to see if anyone has endorsed this company. Also, meet with the co-founders. We've personally met our co-founders and found from our first meeting that they were incredible people with incredible visions. See if their's a time where you can meet them. If your going to be doing business, there should be a time where you should have the chance to meet with them.
      4. What is the compensation plan now, and what was it like before.
      See the history of the comp plan and see if increases and never decreases in it's history. We checked with the records in our business and found that in over the years, the compensation plan had only gotten better each year. As long as we've been involved, we've now witnessed the compensation plan always increasing. Check the history on yours.
      5.Have they been featured in magazine's? For instance our company has been featured in several magazines Like Success, Fortune, USA Today etc. Check to see if they have. You can get a lot of information on the company by reading about them.
      6. Has Inc 500 rated them? This magazine or slit rated our company the 22nd fastest growing company in revenue in it's first 5 years. Inc 500 shows the top 500 businesses in revenue growth. Check to see what Inc 500 rated the company your looking at.
      7. Do they have a physical address that you can go to? Check for an address not just a P.O. Box
      8. Where are their headquarters? Our world headquarters is in Farmington Hills Michigan, Personally been there, (If your here in the states) Other headquarters in different countries. and US headquarters in Charlotte.
      9. What does the start up cost take care of? If there is no start up cost, what will you have to be dishing out and for what? In my business headquarters takes care of all the billing for my customers, Inventory, Customer services, Order Entry, Employees, workman's comp, Cross referencing, Licensing, Insurance, paperwork, accounts payables, accounts receivables etc.
      10. What is the product and service you would be selling.
      Is the product and service in high demand? For instance we offer services that people are already using every day and paying for anyway, but at a lower cost. Things like Local and Long distance telephone services, Internet, video phones, digital phones, cellular phones through all the major cellular providers. We make a percentage every single month they pay their bills. Everyone uses them and everyone pays for them. When money gets tight, would they keep your service or be able to run to the store and be able to purchase them on sale? Leaving you to have to wait until they run out of what they just purchased, or wait until their finances get settled? This is what I mean by high demand.
      So many different things to check out in making sure a business is a good one to get involved in. If the business feels right to you, and all questions are answered and you feel good about it, then I'd say jump in. Running a business is different then a job though. You have to treat it like it's your child and not just something your going to "try" you have to believe in the product and service and go at it full force. This is your future your talking about, no one else's.
      I hope my examples of what we looking into with our business helps you be able to find the same answers in the business your looking into. Forget about asking the common question and asking someone how much they make in their business to determine if you'd get involved in this or not. In a business, it doesn't matter what one business is making over another. It only matters what you do in "YOUR" business. I hate it when people ask me how much I make. Because they're not going to walk into and start up their business making what I make. I've been involved with my business for over six years. So yeah, I will make more. If you tell someone how much you make, then it's a psychological thing that they expect to make that amount in a week, and that is just not going to happen. Six years of building a business verses 1 day. So don't even ask. Look at the possibilities for YOURSELF.

  5. QUESTION:
    Which tools can I use to promote my affiliate marketing programs?
    I have have noted that earning income using affiliate marketing programs takes time as it is not easy to rank high quickly on search engines. The fast methods seem to be expensive.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi There
      I have been involved in the internet affiliate marketing business for several years now. Please believe me when I say there are no quick ways to build lists or attract new affiliates. It takes time and perseverance. It can be very frustrating at times. I have spent hours and hours trying to promote different affiliate programs and attract new affiliates. The biggest disappointments are after working hard to attract new affiliates is to find that only about 5% of them are willing to work at the particular program. The other 95% just sit back and wait for you to do the work for them. If the particular program requires that they have to pay a fee then your recruiting efforts are mostly for naught.
      The people that make big bucks in the affiliate marketing business are those that invest large amounts of money in advertising and pay per click marketing. All these hypes that we see everyday about joining super list building programs, video courses, fantastic affiliate programs and all the other tremendous offers is just to get our money. They expect people like us to invest in these programs and fail. After failing most of us move onto another program that looks unbelievable and fail again. That s how THEY make their big bucks.
      I am not saying that you cannot make money with affiliate marketing. There are some good programs out there that will work for the right people with the right skills and who are willing to invest the time and money. I will keep trying though. Recently I have gotten interested in the social networking aspect of the internet marketing. Namely Twitter. Twitter is quick, easy and fun place to meet and exchange information and ideas and you can actually make a few bucks.
      I have searched out some great tools and Ebooks that can help attract interested followers! Most of them are free.
      For example Social Oomph, http://www.socialoomphblog.com/ ,Tweet Spinner https://tweetspinner.com , Twitter Karma, http://dossy.org/twitter/karma/ , Hoot Suite http://hootsuite.com/ just mention a few, are all great programs for attracting followers who are interested in your particular niche.
      There are also some great eBooks available to help you, such as My Twitter Tool Box with 350 twitter tools (most of them free)at http://mytwittertoolbox.tk/ or Twitter for Internet Marketers at http://twitterforinternetmarketers.tk plus much more at http://moretwitterinfo.tk/

      I wish you great success in whatever your endeavors might be.

    How to earn affiliate money with Yahoo?
    Hi, using Google for affiliate marketing is so hard and expensive now! Does anyone know how to use Yahoo for affiliate campaign?

      Google's affiliate program is the Performics Affiliate Network http://adwords.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=97264 - are you saying you are a member of Performics? Yahoo's affiliate program is managed by Commission Junction http://www.cj.com so you need to apply to CJ first

    I really appriciate every help you can give me.

    • ANSWER:
      Independent from server and domain name, you can create a set of basic html files with a JavaScript refresh tag to the affiliate links. This way you can set a timing of 1 second and even add your own analytics code to the pages...

      Your redirects will work, when visitors mouse over your links they will see a page within your own website and best of all you can see through Google analytics the traffic each redirect page gets... Depending on your structure you can create 1 redirect per link/or product and track them individually :-) No need to buy new domain and worry with advanced programing! Good luck

      Below code example (for my privacy I replaced my Google ids for XXXX) I also have a conversion code:

      **************************************************************

      var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");

  12. QUESTION:
    What is the easiest way to drive targeted free traffic to my website?
    My wesite is an affiliate marketing website.

    • ANSWER:
      Getting traffic is a combination of a lot of things. The key to success is to create great content that visitors want to use, search engines will love and other websites will naturally link to. Of course, it's easier said than done.

      You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords

      Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

      1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement - if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

      2. Use social media. Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon, LinkedIn, Reddit, Digg and others can be a big source of traffic for your business. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important -- and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools.

      AddThis http://www.addthis.com

      3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

      Google's Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide (PDF format) http://static.googleusercontent.com/external_content/untrusted_dlcp/www.google.com/en/us/webmasters/docs/search-engine-optimization-starter-guide.pdf
      Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com's "Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day." http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

      4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as 0 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

      http://www.przoom.com/
      http://www.prweb.com

      5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

      Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=1006022407481

      6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article " How To Sell More on the Web: 30 Tips To Increase Conversion Rates For An Ecommerce Site " http://www.powerhomebiz.com/092006/ecommerce.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

      7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

      Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
      Google Base http://base.google.com

  13. QUESTION:
    Can I really earn money through affiliate marketing?
    There are many people on the Net who are dying to help us with earning huge cash doing affiliate marketing - all of them of course charge for their service. But I wonder if I can do it without resorting to them. Something like building up a WP site of my own, setting up one or more affiliate products, and then promoting them.

    Question is - will the venture be worth the efforts (seems it'll take lots of efforts)?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not sure what type of affiliate field you're leaning towards, but i'm actually in the poker and sports betting affiliate market. http://bestbonuspokersites.com

      If this is what you are looking for, my advice to you is to study various aspects of computer science like programming languages, web design, and search engine optimization. If you can build and market your own site to the point you reach first page ranking for the majority of keyword searches, it will boost your traffic which means more conversions and more income for yourself. If you are not interested in building your own site, you can find a web developer or designer to build one for you for roughly around 0. Once you have a website designed, you'll likely be eligible for an amazon.com affiliate account to which you can use to add a store to your site like the one you see at http://bestbonuspokersites.com Then once, built you can either go the expensive route of paying for links and marketing or try to market your website yourself using Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

      Few free marketing suggestions

      search for free classifieds online to post your products in
      post in article databases with intext html links back to your website
      post your site on various social networking sites like facebook and twitter
      tell all your friends and family and ask them to spread the news.

      This is all stuff that you can do for free, free domain name, hosting, building if you learn webdesign, and marketing so anything you do make will be pure profit. Be careful when people approach you with offers because it could be a possible scam. Always do your homework and check everything yourself for credibility.

  18. QUESTION:
    Can I really make money using an affiliate program or CPA marketing?
    I have recently heard about affiliate programs and CPA marketing. I don't have a website nor I have spent much time researching ways to make money online but I am intrigued by this CPA thing. Can anyone tell me step-by-step how to get started with this and what is the actual money making potential in this. Does anyone know any real success stories and what did it take for that person to succeed?

    • ANSWER:
      CPA is certainly a viable way to make money online. However, affiliate marketing is much more doable for most of us.

      When you become an affiliate for a company (i.e. Amazon, Wal-Mart, etc.), you get paid when someone clicks from your website to the company's website and actually purchases something.

      Successful affiliates create valuable content that actually answers the question(s) people are asking about a certain product or service. For example, if you search Google for "buy shoes online", you'll find 10,900,000 pages that offer info. If you click on one of the sites offering Zappos shoes, then actually purchase a pair of Zappos, the Zappos affiliate that owns the site you clicked on will earn a small commission from Zappos. This action does not increase the price of your shoes.

      There are many honest marketers earning money online every day. You can learn from some of the best by checking out the free resources below.

      I wish you well.

    • ANSWER:
      Wait... "the Net and Network Marketing"?? Catch-22??

      Those two should go together, hand-in-glove. And yet, Network Marketers have struggled to realize the near-infinite networking, lead-generating potential of the Web.

      How can that be?

      Network Marketing (sometimes called "Multi-Level Marketing" or "MLM" or Two Level Affiliate ) is all about...

      * recruiting/lead generation/relationship-building
      * sales conversion
      * ongoing consumption
      * replicating yourself through downline motivation and training.

      How in the world could the Internet not be the best thing since sliced bread for Network Marketers? Because it's being done, all wrong, by all the wrong people.

      There's no need to push (i.e., chase cold calls/prospects) when you can motivate potential customers and business-builders to pull (i.e., they want to call you to learn more).

  20. QUESTION:
    Can someone recommend me real online jobs. By online jobs, I mean actual jobs that I can do at home.?
    Please don't recommend any online business that has to do with affiliate marketing, google adsense, ebay, surveys and the like. I want an actual job that I can do at home. Its like I am employed but I do the work at home. Is there such? If anyone can recommend something I would greatly appreciate.

    • ANSWER:
      I tried over 18 home businesses in the course of 3 years so please forgive the length of this post but you will find it very informative. Learn from my mistakes! Also make sure to read all the way to the bottom because I have included a list of the top 10 work at home scams. I am a mother of two little girls who are actually tugging on my arm as I write this so I will try to be brief. Many people are looking for work from home companies. All the scams definitely create a big problem but also, there is a problem of people misunderstanding the difference between work from home "jobs" and work from home opportunities. There really are not work from home jobs . To get that you have to start working for a company in their offices first, then they MAY allow you to take the job home.

      Most of the work from home opportunities that are legitimate offers are not an hourly pay type job. They are business opportunities that help you in starting your own business from your home. What you should do first is to decide if you are simply looking for an hourly rate type job or if you are looking for more of an opportunity for additional income such as what you would make in your own business being your own boss from home. Small home businesses have some small costs involved, less than 0 to start is reasonable and I would stay away from those wanting 00-00. It doesn t cost that much to start and run a home business so you shouldn t pay it.

      If you are coming across places that say free then I would RUN don t walk the other way! They never are. I tried them many a times and 3 weeks later I had to buy this and 6 weeks later that. After 6 months these free businesses had cost me over 0 on average.

      After trying 18 things I work about 18-25 hours per week for a National Medical Benefits Company. This is a nationally known and reputable home business which is what you need to make sure you are looking for. I have been with the company almost a year and a half now and I make over 00 a month! In your first month, depending on how many hours you can work, I have seen people make anywhere from 0 to over 00. And your income will increase each month because you get paid residual income as well.

      The best part is they have 401(k), direct deposit, life insurance and a benefits package most of which you get from day one. In addition, there are no products, no hard selling or pushing, no cold calling, no home parties and no telemarketing! That was VERY important to me. I absolutely love working with them and I can't believe I am making what I am making and in so few hours per week. The neat thing is there are other people on your team that you work with so you are never alone. You have great team support and you get to know the other people on your team pretty well.

      I was a bit apprehensive at first because I know a lot of companies are not legit but this company is the number one National Medical Benefits Company in the US. They are a member of the US Chamber of Commerce, and the National Association of Dental Plans and the owner of the company actually sits on the board of The Consumer Health Alliance to which we are also members. Also they were featured in The New York Times , Wall Street Journal Time Magazine American Medical Review and even in the May 2008 issue of Parents Magazine . Even 60 Minutes did a big special on this home based business.

      Even more then all this is they are accepted at over 100,000 retailers nationwide. These are fortune 500 companies like Sears, Target, K-mart, Rite Aid, CVS, Wal-mart, Publix and more. These companies would never work with a company that was anything less than reputable.

      www.workathomeplus.net

      TOP 10 WORK AT HOME SCAMS:

      10. Craft Assembly

      This scam encourages you to assemble toys, dolls, or other craft projects at home with the promise of high per-piece rates. All you have to do is pay a fee up-front for the starter kit... which includes instructions and parts. Sounds good? Well, once you finish assembling your first batch of crafts, you'll be told by the company that they "don't meet our specifications." No matter what you won t get paid.

      9. Medical Billing

      In this scam, you pay 0-0 for everything (supposedly) you need to start your own medical billing service at home. You're promised state-of-the-art medical billing software, as well as a list of potential clients in your area.

      What you're not told is that most medical clinics process their own bills, or outsource the processing to firms, not individuals. Your software may not meet their specifications, and often the lists of "potential clients" are outdated or just plain wrong.

      8. Email/Rebate Processing

      This is a twist on the classic "envelope stuffing scam" (see #1 below). For a low price (?) you can become a "highly-paid" email processor working "from the comfort of your own home."

      Now... what do you suppose an email processor does? If you have visions of forwarding or editing emails, forget it. What you get for your money are instructions on spamming the same ad you responded to in newsgroups and Web forums!

      7. "A List of Companies Looking for Home workers!"

      In this one, you pay a small fee for a list of companies looking for home workers just like you. The only problem is that the list is usually a generic list of companies, companies that don't take home workers, or companies that may have accepted home workers long, long ago.

      6. "Just Call This 1-900 Number For More Information..."

      Not much to say here. Don t Call!

      5. Typing At Home / Data Entry

      Here's how it works: After sending the fee to the scammer for "more information," you receive a disk and printed information that tells you to place home typist ads and sell copies of the disk to the suckers who reply to you. Like #8, this scam tries to turn you into a scammer!

      4. "Turn Your Computer Into a Money-Making Machine!"

      Well, this one's at least half-true. To be completely true, it should read: "Turn your computer into a money-making machine... for scammers!"

      This is much the same scam as #5, above. Once you pay your money, you'll be sent instructions on how to place ads and pull in suckers to "turn their computers into money-making machines."

      3. Pyramid Schemes (this is NOT the same as Multi-Level Marketing MLM)

      If you've heard of network marketing (like Amway, Mary Kay or Pampered Chef), then you know that there are legitimate MLM businesses based on agents selling products or services.

      The problem arises when there is no legitimate product or service at all and it is all about finding new recruits and not only can you lose all your money, but you can be charged with fraud, too!

      2. Chain Letters/Emails ("Make Money Fast")

      They promise that all you have to do is send the email along plus some money by mail to the top names on the list, then add your name to the bottom... and one day you'll be a millionaire.

      Actually, the only thing you might be one day is prosecuted for fraud. This is a classic pyramid scheme.

      1. Envelope Stuffing

      This is THE classic work-at-home scam. It's been around since the U.S. Depression of the 1920s and 1930s, and it's moved onto the Internet like a cockroach you just can't eliminate.

      There are several variations, but here's a sample: Much like #5 and #4 above, you are promised to be paid -2 for every envelope you stuff. All you have to do is send money and you're guaranteed "up to 1,000 envelopes a week that you can stuff... with postage and address already affixed!"

      When you send your money, you get a short manual with flyer templates you're supposed to put up around town, advertising yet another harebrained work-from-home scheme.

      SO that s the top 10.

      Please beware of these scams. There are some legit home businesses out there so be careful. Look for companies in business over 10 years. Look for companies with a needed product or service, something you would be proud to represent. Look for companies that have a national reputation and are members of the US Chamber of Commerce.

      Also, don't be hung up on the BBB either. Did you know, common misconception here, that the BBB is NOT a government regulated agency? That in fact, they are local independently owned franchises where anyone, who pays the right price, can be a member in good standing . This is true!

      As for those of you who say .. I want to work from home but I don t want to have to pay for anything . Well, that s great! But it will never happen. Let s be honest, there is no such thing as a free lunch. As we talked about above there is a difference between a job and a business. You should NEVER have to pay for a job .but again chances of finding a home job are about 3%. At any rate, if it is a true honest home business you need to expect to pay .Mr. Walt Disney didn t start the Disney empire without paying for anything . Neither did Mr. Sam Walton, owner of Wal-Mart.

  22. QUESTION:
    What percentage of the project value should I offer to the marketing company I am setting up a tie up with?
    I have a small startup which is doing decently well. We have been in business since one year now, and I can say that, for starters we have done good.
    We have designed a new project which we believe can take us to the next step. However for this project we need people with strong influence in the beaurocracy. For this reason we are setting up a tie-up with this company which has a very strong influence in the beaurocracy and will provide my company with a definitive platform where I can launch our project.
    However, what I want to know is what kind of conditions should I present in the MoU. I m esp.concerned with the revenue sharing part. Obviously we are going to give them a percentage of the gross amount. The gross will change with the size of any particular client that we get. So shud the % be dependent on the total invoice value. I mean more % for them for gross of 1000000 & less% for 200000.
    How do I decide these values???

    • ANSWER:

      35 yrs exp in adv.

      Having seen many affiliate programs and joint merged ventures, there are many variables to consider.
      Without any specifics that your are obviously withholding, your company might consider using a net revenue platform instead.
      Depending on the overhead involved on your end, and assuming that total invoices are still subject to other external factors that will further reduce the bottom line, it would make sense to offer a smaller percentage of a net result.
      Consider that option.

  23. QUESTION:
    I have entrusted to take a class on general marketing, What are the techniques of general marketing?
    I wish to know about the tricks, techniques, ideas and methods to promot the small scale products in to market?

    • ANSWER:
      For a marketing plan to be successful, the mix of Product, Price, Promotion, and Placement must reflect the wants and desires of the consumers in the target market. Trying to convince a market segment to buy something they don't want is extremely expensive and seldom successful. Marketers depend on marketing research, both formal and informal, to determine what consumers want and what they are willing to pay for. Marketers hope that this process will give them a sustainable competitive advantage. Marketing management is the practical application of this process.

      Most companies today have a customer orientation (also called customer focus). This implies that the company focuses its activities and products on customer needs. Generally there are two ways of doing this: the customer-driven approach and the product innovation approach.

      In the consumer-driven approach, consumer wants are the drivers of all strategic marketing decisions. No strategy is pursued until it passes the test of consumer research. Every aspect of a market offering, including the nature of the product itself, is driven by the needs of potential consumers. The starting point is always the consumer. The rationale for this approach is that there is no point spending R&D funds developing products that people will not buy. History attests to many products that were commercial failures in spite of being technological breakthroughs.

      The next big thing is a concept in marketing that refers to a product or idea that will allow for a high amount of sales for that product and related products. Marketers believe that by finding or creating the next big thing they will spark a cultural revolution that results in this sales increase.

      In a product innovation approach, the company pursues product innovation, then tries to develop a market for the product. Product innovation drives the process and marketing research is conducted primarily to ensure that a profitable market segment(s) exists for the innovation. The rationale is that customers may not know what options will be available to them in the future so we should not expect them to tell us what they will buy in the future. It is claimed that if Thomas Edison depended on marketing research he would have produced larger candles rather than inventing light bulbs. Many firms, such as research and development focused companies, successfully focus on product innovation. Many purists doubt whether this is really a form of marketing orientation at all, because of the ex post status of consumer research. Some even question whether it is marketing.

      Diffusion of innovations research explores how and why people adopt new products, services and ideas.

      A relatively new form of marketing uses the Internet and is called internet marketing or more generally e-marketing, affiliate marketing or online marketing. It typically tries to perfect the segmentation strategy used in traditional marketing. It targets its audience more precisely, and is sometimes called personalized marketing or one-to-one marketing.

      Marketing is an ongoing process of planning and executing of the marketing mix (Product, Price, Place, Promotion) of products, services or ideas to create exchange between individuals and organizations.

      Marketing tends to be seen as a creative industry, which includes advertising, distribution and selling. It is also concerned with anticipating the customers' future needs and wants, which are often discovered through market research.

      Essentially, marketing is the process of creating or directing an organization to be successful in selling a product or service that people not only desire, but are willing to buy.

      Therefore good marketing must be able to create a "proposition" or set of benefits for the end customer that delivers value through products or services.

      Its specialist areas include:

      advertising and branding
      communications
      database marketing
      direct marketing
      event organization
      global marketing
      international marketing

  25. QUESTION:
    How do I find out if a website has an affiliate program?
    Where on a company's website will it say if they use affiliates and have an affiliate program I can use?

    • ANSWER:
      It does vary but usually on the footer of the page there is a link if they use affiliates. If you come across a website with a product or service that you feel or know you can promote it in order to provide leads, then make contact with the owner - there is usually a "contact us" method defined - put forward your proposal and see if they will negotiate a commission for each lead or sale.

      Not many companies would not allow you to promote them. Follow your interests as you will drop an affiliate program you are not interested in.

  26. QUESTION:
    Should I Be Paying Commision on Failed Affiliate Payments?
    I work in e-commerce and we have recently discovered that our affiliates are automatically getting paid, even if the payment for the product failed.

    Our website hosters who deal with our affiliate marketing are now claiming that we have to manually cancel any commissions on payments that fail (we have never been told this!), but seeing as we never received payment in the first place, surely this isn't right?

    We are now over 10.000 down for sales that never completed and were probably fraudulent! Has anyone had any experience with this as an affiliate merchant? Is there any legal leg for us to stand on as neither our hosters/marketers, nor affiliate company are taking responsibility. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      That sort of fraud is supposed to be handled by your affiliate management service, someone is dropping the call, typically there is a one month delay in paying the affiliates, if a sale is nullified in that time the commission is removed from the affiliate's account, hopefully you are a valuable enough customer for the management service to repay you, some threat of publicizing your experience could make a difference, there are a number of scam, ripoff reporting sites (usually for consumers) you could name.

      I don't have a clear picture of what your "hosters/marketers" is, perhaps they are simply not a legitimate business. I can't guess what legal options you really have, I suspect it may entirely depend on the contract you have with the service.

  30. QUESTION:
    What did Bush have to do with the housing market or the trade of oil?
    What policy{s} put us in this mess?And when did it all start?

    • ANSWER:
      Bush had nothing to do with either. Obama's mother was an affiliate of the Bilderberg Group and her part with them was with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. There was so much excess money there and almost untraceable until you start searching for that money. Think of how many older people paid off their mortgages and were supposed to get a refund back after their loans were satisfied, but so very many did not get their refund because they never inquired about it or they died; thus leaving billions or trillions of dollars in these funds of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Guess where it went? Who's pockets did it go into? Leaves big questions in ones mind does it not?

      What Senator voted for banks to loan money to unqualified buyers because it's not fair for the unqualified buyer to settle for what they can afford..and for minorities. I was researching who is the minority now, it is the middle class white male, so why didn't the middle white class male get a home loan of 0,000.? Something fishy here.

      Bush tried to put a freeze on the price of gas, but his democrat house said no. Do you know why? Because the democrats own the majority of the oil companies and they want to squeeze every penny out of the real American People. Who owns Shell Oil Company? The Democrat Rockefeller's. Who owns Exxon Mobil Oil Company? The top three holders of the stock (Barclays, State Street, and Vanguard) are titanic mutual fund and index fund providers) are all corporations and are a part of the Bilderberg Group the majority being Democrats.

  32. QUESTION:
    Where is the best place to shop for groceries and why?
    There are many options for us to buy groceries out there, from big supermarket chains to small Mom & Pop stores. What's your personal preference and why? Do you like the prices? The service? The unique items to the store? The atmosphere? Tell me what you think.
    Great answers so far. Keep 'em coming! (It's gonna be hard to pick a best!)

    • ANSWER:
      My current choices include Wal-mart, a small chain (backed by Affiliated), a small family-owned grocery store and a "Mom & Pop"-type market.

      Wal-mart is crowded, expensive and it's difficult to find anything. I never shop there.

      Prices are better at the small chain and I can request items be ordered. The service is wonderful. They take my groceries out to my car, help me find things, order things for me...I like exotics, so the small chain is better.

      The family grocery is less expensive but they have a smaller selection.

      The "Mom & Pop" store is more expensive than a convenience store. They rarely carry fresh veggies and one has to wait to order meat.

  34. QUESTION:
    How do I use a foreign stock market like the one in HongKong?
    Instead of going through a US or UK broker?

    • ANSWER:
      There are a few ways to invest in foreign markets. The direct approach is to buy stocks in those countries. However, buying shares that trade on exchanges outside of your home country or that of your broker can be harder than trading domestic shares. If you are looking to invest in a foreign company listed on a foreign exchange, the first thing to do is to contact your brokerage firm and see whether it provides such a service. If it does, the firm will need to contact a market maker or an affiliate firm located in the country in which you want to buy the shares. However, even if the firm provides this service, it may not be able to gain access to the specific shares you want. In that case, the alternative would be to try to set up a brokerage account with a firm in that foreign country.

      If you find a way to invest in other countries, you must also understand the risks associated with foreign investment. First of all, timely and accurate information about foreign companies is not available to the same degree as it is in the U.S. Another concern is that the regulations in foreign countries can affect both your investments and any accounts set up in that country. For example, there may be restrictions on your ability to transfer funds from your foreign account to one in your home country, or your funds may be taxed whenever you try to take them home. Being informed allows you to carefully weigh the risks and benefits of investing in a particular foreign market.

  35. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to make money online?
    what are some websites that i can go to that actually pays cash, it has to be worldwide because i am outside US and Canada. Are there any websites that will help me earn some cash.

    • ANSWER:
      There are definitely a lot of scams out there.

      How much time are you looking to put into it? Are you looking to get paid by the hour, or are you willing to develop something over time that doesn't pay upfront but has a larger potential at the end? Do you have any useful skills? Are you a good writer? Do you have an eye for design?

      If you need "hourly" dollars, I'd recommend looking into some of the postings on sites like elance.com and guru.com. You can bid on jobs that are posted by others. Develop a reputation for quality work and you can virtually guarantee some consistent income. You'll be trading time for money indefinitely, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

      On the other hand, if you're willing to invest some time up front with the potential for a bigger payday, you could look into a program designed to build an internet business. You could create a blog and put adsense ads on it, you could write and sell ebooks about a skill that you know well, you could try buying and selling on ebay, or you could get into affiliate marketing.

      Just make sure you check out anything you're considering doing before you start.

  36. QUESTION:
    What are the best places to advertise a home based business?
    I am looking to promote a wonderful work from home opportunity. Trying to reach anyone who would like to earn extra income from home. Target market is anyone who does their laundry, washes their hair, brushes their teeth and would see the benefit of using safer products in their home.
    Bear, was really looking for info on how to advertise. If you would like more info on the business send me an email at momsfreetime01@yahoo.com

    • ANSWER:
      There are plenty of PPC (pay per click) programs. The 2 biggest, I think, are Google & Yahoo!.

      A couple free resources check out the sources box for links:

      1) Create a blog pertaining to your field

      2) Use Yahoo! 360, Yahoo! Local & Yahoo! Groups

      Also, consider signing up for an affiliate program. These programs enable you to advertise on other's sites (your affiliates) and once a sale is made to you, your affiliates & the program are paid a commission. We use ShareASale & pay out to our affiliates once a sale is made & ShareASale takes another . a sale is a pretty small price to pay for us. And I'm sure most programs like that allow you to set the commission rate (no point in your commission being half the price of a sale for you!)

      I listed a couple of handy sites relating to marketing, promotion & advertising. I hope they re helpful for you.

      Hope that helps! I wish you much success & happiness in all your ventures!

  37. QUESTION:
    Are there companies that charge their marketing by receiving a sales commission ?
    How can I market my new product by paying per each product sold ?
    For example , if we sell our product for , we would pay a commission for each sale they generated for us .

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, this is called "affiliate marketing." Tens of thousands of companies offer "affiliate programs" or "associate programs."

      The most widely-recognized merchant affiliate program is Amazon.com, which pays commissions of 4% to 7% (on most products) to many thousands of individuals. Commission rates can vary considerably, from 1% on some low-margin electronic products to 40% or 50% for some higher-margin items.

      Some merchants actually boast of commissions that exceed 100% (this is common in web-hosting sales, where the commission is based on a single month's hosting fees, but a merchant may promise a 300% commission because that means sharing 3 months' hosting fees with the affiliate -- and most such merchants require customers to pre-pay for 6 or 12 months.

      The majority of programs use trusted third-party affiliate networks, such as ShareASale, AvantLink, or others, to track and report transactions, and to manage consolidated payments.

      Some companies rush into an affiliate program, and the consequences can be very expensive. I've posted a series of (free) articles for merchants about affiliate marketing at http://www.MarkWelch.com/web-marketing-advice/affiliate-index.php

      Added: For some reason (probably because of link spam), Yahoo Answers seems to have disabled hyperlinking, so I can't post a working link to my articles about affiliate marketing. Sorry!

  38. QUESTION:
    How to use affiliate programs?
    What is the best affiliate program and how to intergrate into my website.

    • ANSWER:
      if you want to earn money through an affiliate program then you can consider one opportunity "myvideotalk.com"....it is not some household consumer product based affiliate marketing nor some medicine based mlm....more precisely it is a technology based affiliate business.....it is based on latest and future internet based communication technologies...like video mails(future technology to current e mails),video conferencing and web casting ...
      it was accidentaly that i got into this wonderful business,actually we were looking for some strong advertisement media to promote one of my friends 'music band' and a 'tattoo studio' of his elder brother in jaipur,india..one of our friends suggested about using videomails marketing techniques and one day after using these,response was awesome and the next day one other friend asked for how to get this service for his real estate business we then contact the person who sold us these services and in return he informed that there is an affiliate program with this company and you can use your id as a sponsor id for selling these services to someone ...and hence we found ourselves in this wonderful business....and the reason that we are earning through this is its market potential.....video mails are having many diverse applications ranging from personal to professional levels ...one can easily create a potential market for any business using these video mails...you can integrate the html code of this video mails to integrate it into your own site and can use this service itself for its marketing...isn't this great??
      so according to me you should join a network marketing or affiliate program by looking at its market potential and since 'myvideotalk' has monopoly over video email market i.e a future communication technology which is sure to replace e-mails in very coming years and also these are available through only this affiliate program under myvideotalk.com...and hence the early movers will be those benifitted the most...consider this development chain in communication methods...
      letters>fax>pagers>emails and sms facility>????.....what next??
      answer is VIDEO MAILS...also the compensation plan offered by myvideotalk is one of the best plans offered by any company in the world at present and this is a global business...visit myvideotalk.com for more info and if truly interested you can use my id as your sponsor id-154425

    How would you like to see advertising interact with you in the future? Your thoughts...?
    There are wikis, blog, mobile platforms, and web property all trying to reach us with advertising. There is so much advertising out there that is not directly related to our interests. We already know what we want to see because we already know what we want to purchase. Or do we?

    Research shows that advertising works to reposition our interests and influence our purchase decisions. It's probably here forever in some format. How would you like to see advertising interact with you? Will it ever be considered as unhealthy and be banned as cigarettes are in some areas? If advertising were made free would it go away?
    www.razorwest.com

    • ANSWER:
      People want to see advertising that is entertaining or informative, and they want it to be something they are interested in. The internet will make this more and more possible, especially web 2.0 sites that gather limited user interest information and can deliver targeted ads. Affiliate marketing also makes this possible.

You can find something that invests in stocks, has a low expense ratio (a ratio of how much the Fund Company charges for "administration fees" behind the scenes), and is in any sector/interest/index that you can imagine. An S&P Index fund is a good start; the Vanguard 500 Index Fund is a good one, just like investing in 500 of the largest US companies in one fell swoop. The performance of the fund exactly follows the S&P. Their ticker is VFINX. And no, I am not affiliated to the company but I do have some shares in the fund.

      Good Luck!

  45. QUESTION:
    Can a person put an advertisement for a company on Y360 page and get paid when someone clicks on it?
    Can you advise me if I can put a banner ad or other advertisement on my Yahoo 360 page and get paid when someone clicks on it?
    I have heard that this is possible. I think it is called affiliate
    advertising. I hear some make really good money doing this. I don't know if it is true.. Is it?

    • ANSWER:
      Affiliate marketing. You don't necessarily get paid per click, because what company is going to pay for clicks? The company/companies behind the product(s) or service(s) being marketed/advertised will pay you per SALE. But you might want to think about making money reliably, long-term, based on REPEAT internet sales. This is the direction the USA is going, anyway, isn't it? With automobiles, the wealthy were the first to have them, and then the working class followed. It's no different today! The wealthy are already ordering their stuff online and having a truck come to the house. The rest of us, we still stand in the long lines at the Wal-Marts and K-Marts and go out and haul it home ourselves, if we can manage to even find our vehicle where we left it, in the hot sun and the traffic. But if such a convenience service were available and affordable to YOU, would YOU use this service? More importantly, if you had access to a half a million products via YOUR web page (although it's not Yahoo 360), that were priced competitively, would you get excited about driving repeat traffic to it, and getting paid per sale?

      Would you get excited about someone who "knows the ropes" of such a business, who is already earning $ 4,000.00-PLUS, per month in it, who would have a vested financial interest in getting YOU started making money by next month, and every month after that, driving traffic to your site?

      Do you have courage enough to make one phone call and find out further how-to?

      And YES, there is good money being made doing this. I meet with about 90 people who like myself are doing exactly this, every Monday evening. My name is Jack Nelson. For further info, give me a call: (717) 801-5535.

  47. QUESTION:
    How much to charge for Banners and Links on my site?
    I have a GREAT Domain Name and I want to Build A BUSINESS Site with Advertisers in the Field..How do I get started marketing it and get paid? I'm a hairstylist, and I need to solicit and promote my domain in this field....HOW do I Set-Up and determine an AMOUNT to Charge? ? ?

    • ANSWER:
      A great domain name is just that -- a great domain name. It will not lure visitors to the site in by itself. What the site needs is GREAT CONTENT -- content that is unique, compelling, and something people would want to visit again and again.

      I suggest you start by thinking of what the site will be all about, what its focus will be and what will it contain. Make a plan and think of:

      - what are its contents
      - how often content will be updated
      - who will write the content
      - if you will buy the content, where will you buy it
      - can you afford to buy content

      Once you've figured out the content and started creating the content, think of how you will create the website. Will a blog format work for you, blogs being easy to create and maintain but too simplistic for a fully functional advertising supported site? Or will you use a program such as Yahoo's Sitebuilder to make the site creation process easier? Or will you outsource the creation of the site which of course begs the question of whether you can afford it.

      If you are thinking of earning through advertising, note that there are several ways you can earn money from advertising:

      1. Join an advertising network. Advertising networks are organizations that aggregate Web sites that offer advertising space, and sell banner ads (and other advertising options) across them. Traffic requirement is often a minimum of 5,000 monthly impressions, although many do not accept sites hosted by free page services.

      Burst Media http://www.burstmedia.com
      Fastclick (ValueClick). http://www.fastclick.com
      Advertising.com. http://www.advertising.com
      Tribal Fusion http://www.tribalfusion.com

      2. Participate in contextual advertising networks. Contextual advertising are text ads delivered based on the content of the web page using an automated system.

      Google Adsense https://www.google.com/adsense/
      Yahoo! Publishing Network (currently in beta and available to US publishers only) http://publisher.yahoo.com/
      Intellixt http://vibrantmedia.com/site/web_01a5.htm
      Quigo Adsonar http://www.quigo.com/adsonarexchange.htm
      IndustryBrains http://www.industrybrains.com
      Commission Junction Evolution http://www.cj.com
      Kanoodle Brightads http://www.kanoodle.com/about/brightads.html
      Clicksor http://www.clicksor.com/affiliate_programs.php
      Contextweb http://www.contextweb.com/
      Bidclix http://www.bidclix.com/
      Bidvertiser http://www.bidvertiser.com/

      3. Sell advertising for your site directly. This is admittedly a more difficult route for a small business site wanting to earn advertising revenues. But hey, as they say: "no pain, no gain!" The main question you will ask is "How much should I charge?"

      Your advertising rate will depend on several factors:

      - Who is your audience and how desirable is your audience to the advertisers? If your audience are techies or those who have the propensity to purchase higher-ticket items, then you can charge a higher price as compared to an audience of bird lovers.

      - What is the rate of comparative websites in your niche? You don't want to overprice yourself out of the market yet you don't want to undercharge as well.

      - What is the rate advertisers are willing to pay in your site? You may charge per CPM but if nobody's taking you up on the rate even though you may get inquiries, then it could imply that advertisers may consider your rate too expensive. But if you charge [FAQ-ANSWER].50 per CPM and advertisers are flooding in, then you may be too cheap and can afford to increase your rate.

      - What is the CPM you get from other advertising vehicles? Do you run Google Adsense, and if so, what is your effective CPM rate with them? Or if you run banner ads through ad networks like Burst Media, Valueclick or Tribal Fusion, what is the CPM you're getting? You can use those values to help you gauge your rate. It may not always work (e.g. if we use the CPM we get from Adsense, nobody's ever going to advertise on our site because our Adsense CPM is too high) but it can give you an idea of what rate to use.

      - What is the level of exposure the advertiser wants? You can lower your rate for an advertiser willing to sign a longer term contract, say for one year vis-a-vis an advertiser that signs up for only a month. You can also arrange for special rates if the advertiser is purchasing several advertising products from your site (e.g. advertiser wants to buy banner ads, text ads and newsletter sponsorship).

      If you're just starting in the game, experiment and see what rate the market will bite. You can start at per CPM ( for every 1,000 times the ad is viewed) and see how it goes. I charge for CPM for banner ads on my site and we get a lot of advertisers for our niche.

      There is so much to learn when you are starting in this game. I suggest you read more about the topic, visit internet marketing sites and check out forums such as WebmasterWorld.com http://www.webmasterworld.com

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think so. Many affiliate programs do ask if you are a llc or not, but that's just for tax purposes. It totally depends on you and your friend.

  5. QUESTION:
    How do you start an affiliate program for your online business?
    I'm venturing out on a small business idea online. I would like to give vendors the ability to resell my product or act as a distributor. I don't know anything about this. How do you go about setting up an affiliate program? Any requirements? Any pros and cons?

    • ANSWER:
      The pros are that you will have others helping you sell your products and then you normally only pay them once they have sold the item so you can't really loose out on that part of it.

      The cons are that there is quite alot of work involved and you have to advertising your affiliate program just like a site to get affiliates interested in signing up. It's not an easy task running an affiliate program, but you can let 3rd party networks take most of your workload of you by paying them a little extra so that they can practically run it and help get affiliates for you.

      Just in case you are wondering where to get software then there is some of the best affiliate tracking software listed at: http://www.affiliateseeking.com/affiliate-software/1.html

      The ShareASale listing in that link that I have just given you is a very good network that will help you get affiliates and will manage most of the affiliate program for you. You are also able to set up datafeeds, allow lifetime commissions, pay per sale, click, lead, etc.

      That is a very good and reputable network. I'm an affiliate over there, but there has also been a lot of good stuff that their merchants have said to.

      Hope this helped you out a little further in your decision on what to do.

      Good luck anyway.

  7. QUESTION:
    Has anyone actually had revenue from being an affiliate with websites that give you commission?
    I am planning on having a personal website and linking many businesses and services through their affiliate programs. Has anyone ever tried this? I only expect to make a very small amount of money, but I am curious.

    • ANSWER:
      I made some cash from my Amazon affiliate program. Limit your affiliates and concentrate on getting good affiliates that coincide with your web site. For example, make believe your site is going to be about crocheting. Maybe an affiliate to Amazon where you highlight different books about crocheting and an affiliate program with a store that sells crocheting stuff.

      Target your audience and try to keep your front page as clean as possible by limiting the banner ads. Putting a whole bunch of affiliate links on a secondary page will probably be useless as folks won't surf to a page of links just to go somewhere to buy something random.

  8. QUESTION:
    What is a tax ID for affiliate programs?
    I manage a website and trying to submit for several affiliate programs; but it asked me for our tax id? Do I need to register my car forum site as a business?

    What's the best way to become successful at any type of affiliate program?
    I read that 99% of the people who get involved in affiliate programs hardly make any money. Only the top 1% affiliate marketers earn a high income. What's the difference(s) that separates the winners from the losers?

    • ANSWER:
      I make money online through affiliate programs. They can be very lucrative, but you really need to be careful when signing up with a company. There are a lot of scams. Look for a company with little or no start up fee. You also want a company that offers excellent training. Check out the products or services that the company offers to see if you find them reliable. Establish a start up budget, and schedule some time to work on your business. The failure rate in this business is high because most people don t invest the time and energy needed to succeed. You have to believe in your ability to succeed 100%!

    How do I market my affiliate program?
    I have no knowledge of how to effectively market my affiliate program and website. I have little money but would like advice from the pros on how to proceed and use my profits to build my business.

    • ANSWER:
      Are you running a business running an affiliate program or someone working as an affiliate (or affiliate marketer)? Those are two very different things and take two different approaches.

      If you are an affiliate, then go out and become active in social networks, forums and other blogs in your niche. Post and become active. Those are some of the best ways to drive traffic to your website. Also, if you're running a blog style website, post like crazy -- at least 5 times a week, and I've found that longer posts do a lot better in search engine results.

    I want to start a online small business and I recently read that now creating wapsite is the new way for make money. Does anybody know how to earn money from wapsites? Please suggest me some wap affiliate programs to make money by creating mobile sites.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jai,

      I wouldn't say that these programs were all that new. They have just recently become more popular because of internet marketors selling the "idea". Usually for a small fortune.

      www.Milnicmedia.com is the best place to go if you wish to promote products like these. They have PPA (pay per action) as well as your usual commission based products. PPA are generaly products that require people to enter information such as their email address or post code. These are my personal favourite because people don't have to buy anything for you to get paid.

      Commissions are paid when people download a product, such as a ring tone. Again these are great because people don't need a credit card to buy them.

      Good luck!

  16. QUESTION:
    Is joining a affiliate program a bad idea?
    I am trying to find a way to make money at home so I can quite my dead end job. I am just wondering if affiliate programs work and how long does it take to build an income with this? How do I find companies that hire affiliates?

    • ANSWER:
      I have to agree with another poster and gave them a thumbs up. They are correct about affiliates being home based business owners. Your not hired your build a business through collaborations within a company. A business within a business. Kind of like if you were to open up a McDonald's, you'd own that particular business, but you wouldn't own the entire chain or McDonald's. Just that one restaurant.
      Affiliate business owners have the same income opportunities as a traditional owner, they just do it the smarter way and have less over head. Most of the overhead expenses are things they have to pay for each month anyway, like house payments, Internet and telephone services, electricity, car expenses etc etc. Only they were going to use these things regardless if they went into business or not. Also the fact that everything like that becomes a tax write off. With that, yes joining an affiliate program is not a bad idea, it can be an actually good idea.
      I'm a mom and understand you needing to find a way to make money at home. A lot of people are going into business for themselves and running them out of their homes. The way the economy is giong, gas price inflation, it's pretty much forcing people to have to find alternative ways to make their income. Home based businesses (affiliate programs) are an excellent way to do this. Like I said, you have the same income opportunity as a traditional business.
      How long does it take to build an income with this line of work? That all depends on you. It's your business, not a job you are not hired, so you have to build the business from the ground up. How long it takes you really depends on you and no one else.
      Here's an article I suggest you read on this topic. It will give you a lot of information on this as well as quite a few industries to look into if affiliate programs are the way you want to go.

    How hard is it to join an affiliate program?
    I want to make a website and I have a few good ideas. I was just wandering how hard it is to join an affiliate program. Would I make any money if so how much. And does there have to be a certaiin number of visits to your site? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Okay first let me tell you it is easy to join an affiliate program unless you are talking

      about cpa. It costs nothing to join and you can find almost anything you can think of.

      The money you would make depends on the products you choose to promote. For

      example if you go to clickbank you can find a product or service that charges .

      Clickbank usually gives 50% to 75% commission which is excellent. They give out

      that much because they are digital products. For physical products you would get

      paid less for example, amazon or commission junction would pay from 5% to 7%.

      You would have to drive a lot of traffic if you want to make a descent amount of

      money with physical products. The only place were you need to prove that you have

      a good website and have good traffic to join are cpa (cost per click) affiliate programs.

  21. QUESTION:
    Why do people overlook the simple online business opportunities?
    I often find people asking about employment, local business opportunities etc. Today, the earning opportunity scenario has radically changed. With more and more people going in for internet connections, the earning opportunities are in your hand. Think of taking online surveys, going in for affiliate programs ,selling magazines and what not, all these are good money making opportunities.
    You stand to get a reasonable amount of money every month. And with labour the booty will only increase.
    Still why people don't think of doing online business which may not require even a dime to spend at times ?

    • ANSWER:
      You can make money online, but not as a job and you're not going to become rich from it unless you are a company setting up your own website to sell a product/service (although even then you probably won't become rich and it certainly won't happen overnight).

      All online jobs are a scam and any sites asking you to pay to join to make money are scams, plus there are many others that are also scams (mostly ones telling you you can make a lot of money from doing nothing, or near enough nothing). Generally the more you do online and the more time you spend online the more you can make, but only as extra cash. The Internet is a way of getting some extra money and there are some good opportunities for businesses, but most people can't give up their jobs and start making enough money online to live off.

  22. QUESTION:
    Can I really make money online? Do affiliate programs work?
    I need to supplement my income with a business I can work from home. I've heard that you can make alot of money in affiliate programs. Is this true?

    • ANSWER:
      yes it is true, however if you don't know the industry that your getting involved in, then you will need some help and training.
      There are a lot of different home based business opportunities out there to get involved in. All with great income potential. I know quite a few people who have their own home based business that make an incredible amount of income running a simple business from home. Home based businesses do not cost a whole lot of money to get started either. They don't have the over head that traditional business have either. Almost everything in your home becomes a tax write off. Things you use every day.
      I think the best one is in the telecommuniations industry with the largest direct selling Telecommunication service provider in the world. They are 15 years old with head quarters in Farmington Hills Michigan, Charlotte North Carolina, Amsterdam, Sydney and Montreal. They have been featured in several magazines like USA Today, Success, Fortune etc. Inc 500 rated them the 22nd fastest growing company in revenue in it's first five years. They are registered with the BBB and FDSA as well.
      They market in services people use every day and pay for anyway. Services like Local and Long Distance telephones, Internet, Digital, video phones, Satellite TV, and all the major cellular phone companies like T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Nextell, Altell etc as well. We save people money and make money at the same time. Every single month these people pay their bills, we make a percentage over and over again each month. Donald Trump has endorsed our company and uses the services as well.
      How many people do you know, or know of around the world that uses one or more of these services or products? . A lot of people right? You can save them money and make money.
      If this is an industry that you would like to learn more about, you should contact Tiffany at kaiden4@aol.com and she can answer any questions and go over everything with you.

    • ANSWER:
      On-line, you can be ANYONE and ANYWHERE you like .. your web 'presence' can be totally fake - indeed, you can have as many 'identities' on the web as you like ....

      This makes it the IDEAL medium for con-merchants, scam artists and criminals of all sorts .. those that operate outside the jurisdiction of the national Police Force are effectively untouchable ... so from the criminals point of view, it's totally risk free ...

      Thus, I would suggest, it's about 1,000 times MORE LIKELY that any 'making money on-line' offer is a total SCAM than areal opportunity ...

      MOST web users are starting to learn that the MORE they 'give away' on the web, the MORE likley they are to be the target of ID thieves and scam artists ... anyone who has 'published' their true email address and is now receiving thousands of spam emails every day is well aware of this

      So most web users have learned to actively AVOID any 'special offer' scam or 'money making' pyramid scheme scams that they might stumble across whilst surfing ..

  30. QUESTION:
    How to use affiliate programs?
    What is the best affiliate program and how to intergrate into my website.

    • ANSWER:
      if you want to earn money through an affiliate program then you can consider one opportunity "myvideotalk.com"....it is not some household consumer product based affiliate marketing nor some medicine based mlm....more precisely it is a technology based affiliate business.....it is based on latest and future internet based communication technologies...like video mails(future technology to current e mails),video conferencing and web casting ...
      it was accidentaly that i got into this wonderful business,actually we were looking for some strong advertisement media to promote one of my friends 'music band' and a 'tattoo studio' of his elder brother in jaipur,india..one of our friends suggested about using videomails marketing techniques and one day after using these,response was awesome and the next day one other friend asked for how to get this service for his real estate business we then contact the person who sold us these services and in return he informed that there is an affiliate program with this company and you can use your id as a sponsor id for selling these services to someone ...and hence we found ourselves in this wonderful business....and the reason that we are earning through this is its market potential.....video mails are having many diverse applications ranging from personal to professional levels ...one can easily create a potential market for any business using these video mails...you can integrate the html code of this video mails to integrate it into your own site and can use this service itself for its marketing...isn't this great??
      so according to me you should join a network marketing or affiliate program by looking at its market potential and since 'myvideotalk' has monopoly over video email market i.e a future communication technology which is sure to replace e-mails in very coming years and also these are available through only this affiliate program under myvideotalk.com...and hence the early movers will be those benifitted the most...consider this development chain in communication methods...
      letters>fax>pagers>emails and sms facility>????.....what next??
      answer is VIDEO MAILS...also the compensation plan offered by myvideotalk is one of the best plans offered by any company in the world at present and this is a global business...visit myvideotalk.com for more info and if truly interested you can use my id as your sponsor id-154425

    How do affilliate programs work where phone calls are involved?
    I'm interested in the following affiliate program:

    https://users.buy.at/affsignup.php?PROGID=Njc1

    It says that for every appointment booked you get 20, however if you go through to the company's web site there are big calls to action to call a number.

    How would these appointments be tracked?

    • ANSWER:
      Generally they are tracked through the referral code, at least a number of programs stateside (USA) work that way so I assume it's the same on the other side of the ocean.

      I've known situations where affiliates are given a "promo" code (which is either their affiliate id alone or their affiliate id coupled with some other code) where the affiliates pass this along to their referrals to enter into an online forum or to give to a telephone operator...

      However, if you have no such code & you cannot see a code that the customer passes along to the telephone operator when you refer them, it could be that the company is using you to build their business but not giving you a fair share.

      You should contact the company directly because that sounds fishy.

  40. QUESTION:
    Why has America limited the entrepreneurial spirit to those 18 and over?
    I think people under the age of 18 are capable enough to start their own business, and the idea should be welcomed more than anything. People between the ages of 15-18 know better what kids want, and they could create more successful businesses. If I wanted to create my own website and make money through affiliates and pay per click ads, I cannot successfully do this, because for most things you have to be 18 to participate. You have to be 18 to use most affiliate programs, Google AdSense, and to set up an account with a service like paypal or neteller to transfer money online. Does anyone know of any services that do not require an age limit of 18?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't take anything out on America until you know the facts. I'm a small business consultant, and I assist all ages in learning how to start their own business. click ads, affiliates, surveys and such are "jobs" and you'd not be owning your own company, not owning your own business. I've known of people starting at age 13 who start their own businesses, it's put into their parents' name until they reach 18, but that doesn't stop the young person from providing ideas and working behind the scenes on their own business.

    Is there any serious business hiring people online to work online?
    I am looking for a online job to work from home,I am not interested in links to affiliate programs or click sense I want to make real dollars to pay bills not cents to buy candy! PLease if you know of anything let me know.Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      In answer to your question, NO there are NO serious and legitimate online businesses.

      If you want to sell things, you can try Usborne books, Avon cosmetics or vaccum cleaners, but you still have to be out of the house selling.

      Basically, unless you are self employed, you simply cannot make money from online without investing something first.

      And most of the "online jobs" out there are scams.

      Those people who DO work from home, have usually worked at the office for a number of years and have EARNED the right to work from home.

I have my own credit repair company and was wanting to know how to have it where my clients can link to a credit agency and pull their credit reports. I know that there is an affiliate program but I keep getting conflicting info on how they work. When I call the agencies to make sure that this is possible I do not get a call back. But I see other credit repair agencies use this same method on their sites and one of them even told me that they get paid for every person they refer. I just want my business to work and so far it's doing good. I have a few clients that are happy, but I want to improve the service of my website. By the way before you judge me or my company, get to know us. We are not out here taking anyone's money.

    I have several articles and I am planning to sell them at per 50 articles. Is there any online affiliate program where I can find any broker who will sell them for me? I have no paypal available in my country.

    • ANSWER:
      The idea of paying someone for sending you business has been around for a long time. Affiliate marketing is just a new, Internet-based, take on it. An affiliate sends traffic to your website and is paid a commission on each sale. For software this commission will typically be in the range 20-50% of the sale price (although commissions of 75% or more aren t unheard of). Commission is usually calculated by using cookies to track the number of successful sales ( conversions ) due to each affiliate.

There are also many features on this web site, such as contests and special surveys, from which you can redeem extra prizes that would be sent to you with your monthly cheque, such as iPods, Xbox 360s, gift certificates, and much more.

      Cheques are sent monthly, and usually arrive about a week or a week and a half into the next month. No payment from you is ever required, not to sign up, not EVER. Unlike other sites that try to scam people out of their money, this site never requires you to pay them.

      "If the site doesn't get paid from me, then why would they have this service going?" - The site doesn't get paid directly from you, but when you complete an offer or survey, they also get paid a small portion of what you earned yourself. For example, if you complete a survey about computers let's say, you would earn maybe and the web site itself would recieve [FAQ-ANSWER].50 from the company also for getting you to complete the survey. These surveys take little time at all, most taking up less than even 2 or 3 minutes of your time.

      Fraud is also a big deal on the Internet these days, and this site recognizes that. That is why they ask for ONLY three bits of information: Your name, email address and your home address. Yup, that is all. No credit card information, no banking information, nothing like that. All they require is your name and address so that your cheque can be sent to your home every month. Your email address is only required to confirm that you have done the offers and surveys. Fortunately, no spam mail or junk mail is ever sent out by this site and your information is never shared with any other company.

      Personally I have been a member of this website, along with thousands of others, for approximately 1 year now and have earned well over 00 by working in my spare time. This web site has been great to me, also the members and administrator are very friendly, and are always there to help you with a question or problem you may be having. So far, I've listed only positives about this site, because I can't think of a single negative thing about it. Earn money in your spare time, at no cost to you...Simple!

  49. QUESTION:
    Which tools can I use to promote my affiliate marketing programs?
    I have have noted that earning income using affiliate marketing programs takes time as it is not easy to rank high quickly on search engines. The fast methods seem to be expensive.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi There
      I have been involved in the internet affiliate marketing business for several years now. Please believe me when I say there are no quick ways to build lists or attract new affiliates. It takes time and perseverance. It can be very frustrating at times. I have spent hours and hours trying to promote different affiliate programs and attract new affiliates. The biggest disappointments are after working hard to attract new affiliates is to find that only about 5% of them are willing to work at the particular program. The other 95% just sit back and wait for you to do the work for them. If the particular program requires that they have to pay a fee then your recruiting efforts are mostly for naught.
      The people that make big bucks in the affiliate marketing business are those that invest large amounts of money in advertising and pay per click marketing. All these hypes that we see everyday about joining super list building programs, video courses, fantastic affiliate programs and all the other tremendous offers is just to get our money. They expect people like us to invest in these programs and fail. After failing most of us move onto another program that looks unbelievable and fail again. That s how THEY make their big bucks.
      I am not saying that you cannot make money with affiliate marketing. There are some good programs out there that will work for the right people with the right skills and who are willing to invest the time and money. I will keep trying though. Recently I have gotten interested in the social networking aspect of the internet marketing. Namely Twitter. Twitter is quick, easy and fun place to meet and exchange information and ideas and you can actually make a few bucks.
      I have searched out some great tools and Ebooks that can help attract interested followers! Most of them are free.
      For example Social Oomph, http://www.socialoomphblog.com/ ,Tweet Spinner https://tweetspinner.com , Twitter Karma, http://dossy.org/twitter/karma/ , Hoot Suite http://hootsuite.com/ just mention a few, are all great programs for attracting followers who are interested in your particular niche.
      There are also some great eBooks available to help you, such as My Twitter Tool Box with 350 twitter tools (most of them free)at http://mytwittertoolbox.tk/ or Twitter for Internet Marketers at http://twitterforinternetmarketers.tk plus much more at http://moretwitterinfo.tk/

      I wish you great success in whatever your endeavors might be.

  50. QUESTION:
    How can I offer gift cards for major brands on my website?
    When you go to Walgreens etc, there are a variety of gift cards available to applebees, the gap, etc. I've looked at a lot of pre-paid visa affiliate programs, but I would like to find an affiliate program that offers other gift cards, that I can offer to my customers. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      I have a lot of experience marketing small companies online (I have 3 companies). One of the best ways is to sign up at business directories and protals. These are basically listings of businesses (simliar to the phone book). The advantage is that these portals usually get a lot of traffic and they're ranked high on Google because of all the quality links they contain.

      My favorite portal is called Directory Exclusive. I signed up a few weeks ago because they're giving a away a free business card holder when a person enter's their company info. I received it in the mail 3 days ago =)

      I don't know if they still have that promotion, but you can try to get the free card holder here:

  4. QUESTION:
    Which Affiliate Program Should I Get?
    I like to get involved with affiliate marketing and have found two programs that are both promising. The first affiliate program is Site Build It!, they are accredited by The University of Arizona, Penn State, The Citadel and other colleges. On the other hand the other affiliate program is Wealthy Affiliate University, an online university that offers a 10 day free trial. Which shall I choose?

    • ANSWER:
      Both are good programs, but I would go with that 10 day free trial to see if this is the program for you. You would have an opportunity to check out all of the material present in the program.

  5. QUESTION:

    I am very interested in starting an online business. It's time I made some money, and I am quite dedicated in what I start doing. I am a college student right now, and I want to figure out a good way to start my income. Please share any ideas you have. I don't have much money to start with so any ideas that would take this into consideration would be great!

    • ANSWER:
      One of the easiest ways to make money online is affiliate marketing selling other peoples products...The Wealthy Affiliate University teaches and provides you with everything you will ever need to affiliate market. http://tinyurl.com/cuw9an

      Surveys are also a good place to start. I joined this company as it offers both online and local offline surveys targeted to your area http://tinyurl.com/bhts8l

      One of this weeks greatest finds for me this week is a new community that offers free websites and free hosting with a platform that so easy to use that you don't even need any web design skills to have a site up in minutes. http://tinyurl.com/c5z96w They are also monetized so you can start earning money online immediately.

      There are so many affiliate programs and so much information available on the internet that affiliate marketing can be overwhelming initially. This is one of the reasons The Wealthy Affiliate University is so great..they give you an 8 week action plan to follow and a forum that will answer just about any question you could ever have..

  6. QUESTION:
    How can I start a small internet advertising/marketing company? anyone with experience?
    please advise me on how i can go by it, and any tips about improving it.

    • ANSWER:
      The great thing about starting an internet marketing company is the low start up cost. I can't think of any other business where the start up costs are so minimal.

      The best way to start is by becoming an affiliate marketer. You can set up a free account with clickbank.com. There you can market hundreds of products (down loadable). Clickbank is the place to start because they except everyone and you don't need a web site.

      There is a lot to know about internet marketing, the learning curve can be very large because of all the bogus information you'll come across online.

      However, there is a place called Wealthy Affiliate University where you'll shorten the learning curve by getting help from successful marketers who are willing to help others succeed. It's a membership site that costs less than a day!

      They started me out on an 8 week action plan. Each week I learned more about the business and then would take action and implement the things I learned.

      Article marketing or blogging is the most cost effective way to start, but first you must learn about keyword research, SEO (search engine optimization and relevance). Knowing this stuff will help your articles rank with the search engines, thus giving you much traffic.

      Your articles need to be targeted and relevant to the product you're recomending. Notice that I said recomending instead of selling.

      You'll have more success if you recomend products that will help or fulfill a need for someone, just as I'm doing here.

      You see, the job of an affiliate marketer is to connect people with what they're looking for. It's not the idea of trying to sell something to someone. You are providing a service by helping people find what they're looking for.

      I could go on and on but you'll get a more comprehensive understanding of what I'm talking about at WA (Wealthy Affiliate). I've provided a link for you below in the source area.

      If you do decide to join Wealthy Affiliate University, look me up in the forum (carpenter).

      One action is more valuable than a thousand good intensions.

      To Your Success!

  8. QUESTION:
    What type of job can I get with a bachelor's in business management degree?
    I really don't want to be a supervisor though and I don't have enough funds to open my own business. Any advice is welcomed.

    • ANSWER:
      Probably entry level sales...

      If you are interested in opening your own business why not
      consider an Internet business. Almost no entry cost, high
      reward potential if done right and wisely.

      Take a look at the Wealthy Affiliate program. Very low cost -
      a month - and so much return on your money. I usually
      don't call buying something an investment, but this program
      truly is.. an investment in your on-line business education.
      They call it the Wealthy Affiliate University and it is, pretty
      much.

      They have an eight week course to get you familiar with many
      different kinds of on-line marketing activities - included, a
      great webpage writing program - included, three websites -
      included, - a personal blog - included, and much more.

      I think the best part is the Forum... I doubted it before I joined
      but now I whole heartedly agree. It is very, very active... many,
      many posts each day! from both newbies and experienced
      Internet marketers that seem dedicated to help the newbies
      get started and get to be successful.

      They say that the best job in the world is to work for yourself...
      well, the Wealthy Affiliate program is the best training and
      motivation site for learning to do that as I have come across,
      and I have been looking at programs for years.

      With a Bus. Mgmt. degree running an online business should be right up your alley. And the Wealthy Affiliate program is
      the best place to put your education into action that I can
      think of.

      Take a look at it using the link below, in the Source's box. I
      am sure you will be glad you did. The possibilities of an
      On-Line business are truly endless.

    What should i change in my blog to increase earnings?
    I just start with blog and I'm not good to build the design and i want to earn some money from google ads to pay my university. What should i do to get earnings?
    jessiblog.net

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Jessi,

      It really depends how much money you plan on making? I mean if its just a few hundred dollars a month that you are after, then that will be pretty simple, but if you want to pay for your whole college education, then you'll actually need to spend a little money first off in order to begin generating a good income through your blog. There are a lot of programs out there, ranging in price, that do help you to monetize your website/blog. I have used a few of them in the past, including the Wealthy Affiliate, which is WAY TOO expensive at 0 a month or something like that. One program I did use and actually found really helpful is "Blogging to the Bank". I didnt get rich using their system, but I did manage to generate an income for my blog, between 0-00 per month which I was happy with. Anyway, here's there link

      1) Niche selection/ Keyword research / Domain purchase/ Webhosting set up

  12. QUESTION:
    What is your overall opinion of Vanderbilt University?
    Is it a good school? Internationally recognized? Worth the money? Generally speaking will going to Vandy benefit me in any direction I choose to go in the future?
    How does this university compare with other top southern schools like Rice, Duke and Emory?

    • ANSWER:
      From Wikipedia:

      Vanderbilt University is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational research university in Nashville, Tennessee.

      Vanderbilt was founded in 1873 with a gift of million from shipping and rail magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt who, despite having never been to the South, hoped his gift and the greater work of the university would help to heal the sectional wounds inflicted by the Civil War.

      Today, Vanderbilt enrolls around 11,000 students in ten schools four undergraduate and six graduate and professional. Also affiliated with the university are several research facilities and a world-renowned medical center, the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), which is the only Level I Trauma Center in Middle Tennessee.

      Vanderbilt is a member of the Association of American Universities, to whose membership it was elected in 1950.

      History

      The following year, on a medical trip to New York, McTyeire stayed at the residence of "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt, whose second wife was the cousin of McTyeire's wife. Vanderbilt, the wealthiest man in America at the time, had been considering philanthropic causes as he was at an advanced age. His original plan was to establish a university on Staten Island, New York in honor of his mother. McTyeire, however, successfully convinced him to donate 0,000 to endow Central University.

      The endowment (later increased to million) would be Vanderbilt's only philanthropy. Though the Commodore never expressed any desire to have the university named after himself, McTyeire and his fellow trustees soon rechristened the school as "the Vanderbilt University." Vanderbilt died in 1877 having never even visited the school named after him.

      Old Main (1875), photographed before it burned in 1905
      After the fire, Old Main was rebuilt with one tower and renamed Kirkland Hall. It is currently home of Vanderbilt's administration.In the fall of 1875, about 200 students enrolled at Vanderbilt; the university was dedicated in October of that year. Bishop McTyeire, who had been named chairman of the Board of Trust for life by Vanderbilt as a stipulation of his endowment, named Landon Garland, his mentor from Randolph-Macon College in Virginia and then-Chancellor of the University of Mississippi, as chancellor. Garland shaped the school's structure and hired the school's faculty, many of whom were renowned scholars in their respective fields. However, most of this crop of star faculty left after disputes with Bishop McTyeire.

      Old Science Hall (recently renamed Benson Science Hall), one of the original buildings, has not been used for science classes in many years.For the first 40 years, the Board of Trust (and therefore the university itself) was under the control of the general conference (the governing body) of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. However, tensions began rising between the university administration and the Conference over the future of the school, particularly over the methods by which members of the Vanderbilt Board of Trust would be chosen.

      Conflicts escalated with the appointment of James Kirkland as chancellor in 1893. The final straw, at least in the mind of Kirkland, was a failed campaign to raise 0,000 from Southern Methodist congregations (only ,000 was raised). Further disputes between the bishops and Kirkland, which erupted into litigation in 1912, led the Methodist conference to sever all ties with Vanderbilt University in June 1914.

      Vanderbilt enjoyed early intellectual influence during the 1920s and 1930s when it hosted two partly overlapping groups of scholars who had a large impact on American thought and letters: the Fugitives and the Agrarians. During the same period, Ernest William Goodpasture and his colleagues in the Medical School invented methods for cultivating viruses and rickettsiae in fertilized chicken eggs. This work made possible the production of vaccines against chicken pox, smallpox, yellow fever, typhus, Rocky mountain spotted fever and other diseases caused by agents that only propagate in living cells.

  13. QUESTION:
    More money from advertising with lots of mini sites or one big site with lots of pages?
    Hi everyone :)

    The headline sums it up really.

    I have created a few pages and could publish them as idividual one-page sites and link them or I could create one large site with 6 pages. In terms of advertising revenue: what's better?

    • ANSWER:
      I think the answer depends on your niche. What I would do is design multiple small sites with valuable content, all based on log tailed keywords for those sites.

      This will allow these sites to get found easily by search engines and indexed. Try and find keywords with less then 5,000 to 10,000 competing pages.

      Then design one large site, based on broad keywords the entire niche. Say Internet Marketing. Then link all the sites together under one domain. I have done this before and it works. most of traffic will be to the small sites, since your broad based site will have a lot competition.

      The more competition for the keyword the harder it will be to get indexed. try linking them using keyword terms. eventually your larger site will get indexed.

  15. QUESTION:
    what do you actually sell with wealthy affiliates?
    i heard about this site but have no idea what it's about can anyone explain it to me in layman's terms' thanks a lot

    • ANSWER:
      Do you mean Wealthy Affiliate University? It appears to be one of the 100s of courses and membership sites that teach Affiliate Internet Marketing. They may select certain products as teaching case studies, but you are are left to pick from virtually any product or service you can think of that's being sold somewhere on the internet.

      There are numerous affiliate marketing 'network' companies like clickbank, commission junction, clickbooth, many larger online businesses directly manage their own affiliate program.

      Affiliates my earn 5% to 25% marketing hard goods and 30% to 75% for digital products that are downloaded at no real expense to the producer.

      To successfully market a product one typically will have a web site dedicated to that field, the bring in visitors through search engines, with articles or reviews that pre-warm the visitor before you send them on to the store.

  16. QUESTION:
    Do public and private school students have a different attitude?
    Do public school kids have a different attitude then private school kids? Because i've been to public school and private (catholic) and i have to say, i had more fun at public and enjoyed it more. The kids seem more open-minded and not boring. I live in philly btw.

    • ANSWER:
      Kind of, but not really. An arrogant, closed minded bully is an arrogant, closed minded bully at both. types. agree with you. I've learned a lot more about real life from attending public universities ("....95% {to 98%} of everything around here is POLITICS...", University of Oklahoma staff member) than I ever learned while attending Tulane (Newcomb College, two times, BEFORE the faculties of Newcomb and Arts & Sciences voted to merge in summer, 1989. I wonder if the law suit has been settled). New Orleans has had a unique educational system for more than a one hundred years. The ONLY reason that you enrolled your child (before Katrina, with the one exception of Ben Franklin public schools) in public school was that you could not afford parochial (Catholic) or private school tuition. Private schools did have the equivalent of scholarships even when I was enrolled in the 1960s, but the people who had the scholarships were pretty quiet (usually, but not always). Kids of wealthy parents tend to be awful snobs, and some times they become bullies, and they never stop being arrogant bullies until some one knocks them off of their high horse of arrogance. Some never STOP being bullies, and their minds become closed at a VERY YOUNG AGE, less than 10 years old. Watch the action in the sand box where pre-K to sixth or fifth graders can "hang out" during recess. The sand-box bullies grow up to become adult bullies who never reach the emotional maturity to climb out of the sand-box. Bullies bully either because they are bullied by other family members, or they are afraid or jealous of the people they bully. When they get online and can hide behind SUPPOSEDLY anonymous user names, they can become VICIOUS full-time, obsessed online cyber-bullies who insult, demean, slander, defame, and violate the copyright of the people who stand up to them. Those people eventually realize that the cyber-bully is trying to psychologically manipulating them online to get personal attention. A bully being ignored by the person they THINK they are bullying can't stand to be ignored, OR can't stand when the bullied person exposes them online to the rest of the online community that they have been exploiting FOR YEARS.

      Sorry, I went into rant mode, but I'm not going to delete it. I attended THREE private schools, (two of them affiliated with the Episcopalian church) and I had a college degree from Tulane before I went to the University of Arizona for a year as an astronomy major. I USUALLY leave that year at UA off of the education background part of my resume, BUT I learned a great deal that year, and my mind continued opening up, particularly when I decided I HAD to change my mental attitude about math, which I used to despise. Now I think mathematics is fascinating.Just don't make me take a TIMED math test over new material. (The SAT/GRE math tests don't psych me out any more) . I've had math testing anxiety since the first grade in 1958/1959.

    How long do you have to train to be a teacher and how much do you get paid when you first start??
    I think when i want to be older I want to be a teacher but I'm not sure. Tried researching it but not much help really. i want to know how much you get paid and how much you can work your way up to and how long. What subjects would you recomend taking and did teachingturn out to be everything you wanted it to be, if not what would you change??
    i am in he uk so if anyone could explain the uk education system it would be a lot of help but thanks to everyone who has helped so fair on letting me have an understanding of the job.

    • ANSWER:
      This is going to be a long response, so I apologize, but I think you will find out a lot of what you want to know if you read all the way to the bottom.

      I wanted to be a teacher since I was 6. But, I went to college and thought that I would work in Computer Information Systems because that's where the big money was, and I was miserable! I changed my major to elementary education and I have no regrets.

      In Indiana, the requirement is that you have a bachelor's degree from an accredited university (most with education programs are accredited). You must pass the Praxis exam and serve a two year internship - you are a full fledged teacher in this internship, but you have a mentor to help you through. At the end of your two year internship, you must submit a professional portfolio to the state licensing board. Then, they decide if you need more mentoring, if you just don't cut it, or if you get your proficient practitioner's license. After that, you must take 6 credit hours (usually 2 college courses) of continuing education every 5 years to renew your license. At this time, a master's degree is optional, but most opt to get it within the first 5-10 years of teaching because your pay increases (keep in mind though, that you have to pay for the credit hours and/or your master's degree, there is no employer reimbursement for this). Starting salary in Indiana is anywhere from ,000 - ,000 depending on the district, with private and religious-affiliated schools paying less than public schools. Public school pay varies based on the affluence of the district, although there are some wealthier districts that pay less than the more urban districts. Most teachers in Indiana top out about ,000. The 0,000 teachers are found in places where the cost of living is much higher (think New York and other east coast areas) or in colleges. I plan on working as a teacher for at least the next 30 years (I'm in my thirties now), or possibly longer if my mind and body hold up.

      As far as what courses you should take, consider the subject you are interested in teaching. If you are going to be an elementary teacher where you teach all subjects, take as well rounded a course selection as possible. If you are going to be a science teacher, go heavy on the science courses.

      Teaching has been a series of challenges for me, but I wouldn't trade them for the world. As a result I have become a better teacher and a better human being.

      The only thing I would change about teaching is the level of professional respect and pay that teacher's receive. I spend so much of my own money attending professional development workshops, buying professional reading materials, and dressing like a professional, yet I don't receive the respect that a doctor or lawyer might. A lot of people assume that I'm not smart enough to do a more professionally recognized job, yet without teachers, no professional could learn to be that professional. There is an email that circulates quite often through the "teacher circle" and I thought I would share it with you...many times the names and circumstances are changed, but the thought is always the same.

      The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?" He reminded the other dinner guests what they say about teachers: "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach." To stress his point he said to another guest; "You're a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?"

      Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, then began...) "Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

      I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor.
      I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental... You want to know what I make?" (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table.)

      I make kids wonder.
      I make them question.
      I make them criticize.
      I make them apologize and mean it.
      I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.
      I teach them to write and then I make them write.
      I make them read, read, read.
      I make them show all their work in math.
      I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know in English while preserving their unique cultural identity.
      I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

      Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.

      (Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.) "Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant... You want to know what I make?

      I MAKE A DIFFERENCE. What do you make?"

      "Teachers make every other profession."

      If you truly want to be a teacher, go for it! It's the best decision I have ever made.

  18. QUESTION:
    how did the modern hospital system come to be?
    Explain how the modern hospital system came to be, and the role played by the physicians in its creation

    • ANSWER:
      In Europe the medieval concept of Christian care evolved during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries into a secular one, but it was in the eighteenth century that the modern hospital began to appear, serving only medical needs and staffed with physicians and surgeons. The Charit (founded in Berlin in 1710) is an early example.
      Guy's Hospital was founded in London in 1724 from a bequest by the wealthy merchant, Thomas Guy. Other hospitals sprang up in London and other British cities over the century, many paid for by private subscriptions. In the British American colonies the Pennsylvania General Hospital was chartered in Philadelphia in 1751, after 2,000 from private subscription was matched by funds from the Assembly.[36]
      When the Vienna General Hospital opened in 1784 (instantly becoming the world's largest hospital), physicians acquired a new facility that gradually developed into the most important research center. During the nineteenth century, the Second Viennese Medical School emerged with the contributions of physicians such as Carl Freiherr von Rokitansky, Josef koda, Ferdinand Ritter von Hebra, and Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis. Basic medical science expanded and specialization advanced. Furthermore, the first dermatology, eye, as well as ear, nose, and throat clinics in the world were founded in Vienna, being considered as the birth of specialized medicine.[citation needed]
      By the mid-nineteenth century most of Europe and the United States had established a variety of public and private hospital systems. In continental Europe the new hospitals generally were built and run from public funds. The National Health Service, the principle provider of health care in the United Kingdom, was founded in 1948.
      In the United States the traditional hospital is a non-profit hospital, usually sponsored by a religious denomination. One of the earliest of these "almshouses" in what would become the United States was started by William Penn in Philadelphia in 1713. These hospitals are tax-exempt due to their charitable purpose, but provide only a minimum of charitable medical care. They are supplemented by large public hospitals in major cities and research hospitals often affiliated with a medical school. The largest public hospital system in America is the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, which includes Bellevue Hospital, the oldest U.S. hospital, affiliated with New York University Medical School. In the late twentieth century, chains of for-profit hospitals arose in the United States. The decline in the membership of religious orders has changed the status of Catholic hospitals.[37]
      In the 2000s, modern private hospitals began to appear in developing countries such as India.

  19. QUESTION:
    How do I become a US Senator?
    Upon entering college, what steps must one take to become a US Senator?

    • ANSWER:
      You'll need to make good contacts; people who in the future you think will likely be in some sort of powerful position (or will be wealthy and can finance your campaign). To get a taste of leadership and campaigning (it's MUCH more difficult than it seems, especially at big universities) try entering your student government. Run to be a student senator and see how much effort goes into that. Then multiply that by a few million and you've got the effort it'll take to become elected. A few things to keep in mind are 1) more senators were lawyers than any other pre-congressional profession; 2) senate campaigns, particularly open ones, can cost millions of dollars so make sure you have the cash/supporters before running, 3) you can't be a senator until you're at least 30 and must have resided in the US for at least the 9 previous years before you run (and of course be a citizen), 4) during your summers, try to land internships with Senators, Congressmen or some sort of congressionally-affiliated entity (lobbyists, think tanks, etc...) to get a real taste for it, build an impressive resume, and hopefully even get offered a job (it happens more than you'd think) 5) don't aim to be a senator. Most who do it didn't start thinking about it that early on. They become successful lawyers/doctors/businessmen and then are pushed into running by their friends and even local parties. A lot start off small, and enter local politics, moving up to state legislatures, the US congress, and finally governorships or the senate. It's very difficult, but if you set your mind to it, anything's possible.

      I wish you the best of luck, both in college and (hopefully) in the Senate.

    I am using http://www.mygirlfund.com/Chris_Rocks , but I'd love to make more! :) So far only 1 grand... but I've heard of people making like 200 a day, where is that?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi

      There are endless ways to make money online.
      Anyhow, one of the most popular ways to make money online is as an Internet marketer.
      Making money online as an Internet marketer is broken down into three simple steps that anyone can implement.
      Here are the first steps that you need to learn:

      1.As an affiliate it is your job to send people to company websites using specific techniques and strategies.

      2.When these specific people buy something you are paid from the company who owns the product. There are literally 100,000's of companies online who are willing to pay you up to 90% of the entire product sale price just for sending people to their site.

      3.Each pay period you will receive a check in your mail that you take to your bank and deposit (or cash). Some companies will pay you directly to your Paypal account, or even directly to your bank account via wire transfer.

      These are the three high level steps of how Internet marketing works, but there are many aspects of Internet marketing that you need to learn if you plan to make money online, and if you want to make decent income from it.

      There are many websites and programs online that claim they will teach you how to make 00's a day, but almost all of them are big scams.

  25. QUESTION:
    Getting A Wealthy Affiliate ? Should I Join this Membership, claimed to be #1 Online ?
    Hey to all

    Maybe difficult to answer if you are NOT a Member there, but I have seen this website

    http://www.how2resolve.com/insidewa.htm
    and the Wealthy Affiliate University seams to be a great place.
    (By the way, this guy gives a huge amount of eBooks for Free, more then usual.)

    The downside: you have the 30.- Fee per month, but looks like they give a lot of stuff for Free like Hosting, Websites and so on - that can compensate the monthly fee I guess.

    Question:
    should I take the "learning" approach and join Wealthy Affiliate to learn how to market ?
    Or is it better to buy some of the latest released eBooks who show me a easy way to make money Online ?

    P.S. Fact is that I already tryed some eBooks, but they didn't made me any money at all. In fact I lost some with Google Adwords. That was very frustrating as I hate to loose money.

    Thank you for any advice, I really am interested in Internet Marketing but need some direction.

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      I've been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for about 5 months now and it was the best decision I made.

      Like you I was a bit worried about the a month fee's but very soon after a I joined I was earning enough money to cover that, and now after five months I have learnt so much and I am earning more and more each day.

      While I'm still not making that ,000's per day that some members are making, I probably average around 0 per day but it's growing all the time and I think that's pretty good for a newbie.

      I've also made a 10 page report that you can have for free that has screenshots of some of the things that you get inside Wealthy Affiliate as a member if you think it would help you make a decision.

  26. QUESTION:
    What is a preparatory school? And what are the well-known preparatory schools?

    • ANSWER:
      Preparatory schools usually cater to those students in their high school years. They are affiliated with specific colleges and "feed" students to that school, often because students who attend the prep school are rewarded with college credit when accepted at the affiliated university. As such, prep schools often have high tuitions. They are often thought to be reserved for the upper-class and wealthy. Some of the well-known ones that come to my mind are Scranton Prep, St. Joseph's Prep, Xavier Prep, etc, but that's only because I live in the northeast where they seem to be prevalent.

  27. QUESTION:
    Any Member of wealthy affiliate university? here?
    ,After How long will you Start earning, After joining the affiliate university course?

    A'm almost joining, but want to be clear about their claims..

    • ANSWER:
      Some members earn within their first two weeks, whilst others don't earn a dime.

      Main reason? Because they don't take action.

      One has to be certain about one thing with Wealthy Affiliate, yes it is a great resource (probably the best) but if action isn't taking on what you learn with them then obviously you won't earn anything.

      Members that do take action can expect to be rewarded handsomely especially in markets like jewellery that pay handsomely.

      It is advisable to test Wealthy Affiliate's strategies before joining however (which are provided for free at the below site)

I just don't know ..any Affiliate marketers out there that can tell me where to start ? i know in businesss you do have to spend money to make money but I am not interested in a scam, obviously ..So, if you were me what would you do ?

    • ANSWER:
      You have tons of niches? What exactly do you mean?

      One poster asked what writing has to do with affiliate marketing. Really? If you can't write articles, and write site content, you are going to have to rely on strangers to write your content and the articles necessary to promote your site. What about posting on forums and blogs to promote your site? If you can't write that won't work either.

      WAU? there is a monthly charge? RUN!!!!

      Be very careful where you spend your money.

  33. QUESTION:
    What does it take to get into Harvard Medical School?

    • ANSWER:
      The admission requirements are no more onerous than any other school. But since it enjoys the reputation and has so many applicants, it screens applications differently. It may be a normal assumption that this means the highest GPA and scores, but that isn't necessarily true. In fact, the most recent survey revealed that the University of Washington had higher standards than Harvard. And there is less than a percentage point difference in the top 25 schools. So, there isn't an objective source of information to answer your question.

      The subjective criteria probably isn't known to the Harvard admission committee, either. Certainly, they screen applications by the objective criteria, as do all schools, but how they rate an applicant probably fluctuates with each candidate. There is a presumtion that Harvard is purely "Ivy League", snobbish and elitist. Not true at all. I have worked with physicians who went to Harvard med and none of them were from wealthy families, had lived in the New England area or had any legacy to the school. But none of them were slouches, either. At best, I think the only thing that can be said with any certainty is that Harvard's admission committee selects matriculants that they think will reflect well on the school. For the most part, I think they do that job well.

      But the question remains of why would you want to attend Harvard's medical school? The education you would receive at Harvard is no better than the education you would receive at the University of Indiana. All US medical schools are accredited by the same authority and all US medical students have to take the same series of exams. There is no significant difference in these test results, which is how the quality of education is measured. If there was, the low end school would risk its accreditation and no medical school has been in that position.

      Now, if you're the type who just has to have a designer label, then I can see wanting to go to a well known name. But I think you need to understand how reputations are earned. The Harvards, Yales and Johns Hopkins of the world didn't earn their reputation from their medical schools. Again, if they were superior, every medical school would adapt to that program. The reputations are earned from the residency programs, the research programs and the medical centers affiliated with the programs. The reputation of the "Name" is enjoyed by the medical school but has nothing to do with the medical school.

      My best advice is to attend your own state's university medical school. There are two reasons for this: primarily, it is your best chance at being accepted into a medical school for the simple reason that each state is required to give preference to its own state residents. Secondly, it will be the lowest tuition cost for you. If you went to another state's university medical school, you'd have to pay the non-resident tuition, which is usually close to double that of the state resident tuition. And the private medical schools have a flat tuition regardless of whether you are a resident or not, and these tuitions are usually twice that of your own state's medical school(s).

      Best of luck for whatever course you decide to pursue.

    can I earn money sitting at home without investing a single pie, Or how to earn money at home, (data entry, et?
    data entry, typing jobs, paper work etc., i want more details on this type of jobs (this Qn for only Bangalore people)

    • ANSWER:
      Please be careful of the scams is all I say. I was unemployed and spent 3 months filling in surveys, typing at home and mystery shopping. I was running here there and everywhere. At the end of this time, I had earned ... .345! Yes, a dollar and a bit! So, I kept searching and came across an article written by a guy about affiliate marketing. It made sense to me, so I joined a program and here I am, living my dream. I have my business, I am earning and covering the mortgage so of course I am going to shout about it. But be careful, everyone is after your money! Don t pay to find out about opportunities. This affiliate program is international all you need is a laptop!
      Affiliate marketing is online marketing whereby the affiliate drives traffic to a sellers site by placing a link that the customer clicks on then is directed to the required product. The customer is already looking for that product, the affiliate uses marketing techniques such as research to find the customer and the product and bring them together. It requires training if you are unfamiliar with the concept, there are many training programs out there, most of which are scams, but some are extremely good, and you can earn from day one with a few. One of these is Wealthy Affiliate University. They provide the training, research, tools, resources and personal support to drive your success. They are second to none and ranked on page one of Google. The best affiliates and top paid marketers are members. You can join the program, train, and earn at the same time. Not many opportunities boast that. And you only need a computer, and access to the internet to get going! Can I just say, don t ever part with money to find out about a job or opportunity. It is perfectly acceptable to pay a membership fee to join an affiliate program but this is minimal.

  38. QUESTION:
    How to convince dad that my joining Wealthy Affiliates University is the best decision of my life?
    Well, like many he still believes the conventional form of jobs. Normal and professional jobs are my parents idea of an ideal job. In school I, and they too, decided that I'd be in Advertisement Agency as copywriter, Amimation designer, or something.
    But now I'm in collage and I find that online Net jobs, specially affiliate jobs give more value for time and money. Maybe tis not easy as an affiliate...but tis mucho better that slaving my life on a 9to5 job, and then grow old! :)
    For months I've been researching on Wealthy affiliates, and they have not a single fault (well the least amount of faults and risks, to tell the truth). But now....how do I convince them....and make them see that joining it it worthy?....
    because the initial money of 1500 INR is something that only they can give. And if I have to gather the money myself it'll take months and I'd like to get into WA fast!!!!!!!
    So..........how do I do it people?
    Thanks beforehand for your suggestions

    • ANSWER:
      Don't count on it being the best decision of your life. You're in advertising, so by now should understand the power and effect of a good ad.

  40. QUESTION:
    What business can you recommend me?
    Right now my husband & i am employed, he even has sidelines computer repairs but it's still not enough for our expenses & future plans... we dont have capital yet but we can work on it depending on what do you think i could also have as business....

    • ANSWER:
      If Affiliate Marketing interests you and your husband, then I highly recommend you checkout "The Wealthy Affiliate University".

      I've been messing around trying to make money online for probably 5 years (on and off part time), I'll never join any kind of mlm type business again, I could always bring people into the business but couldn't get them to duplicate the process, and that's normally how you make money.

      I didn't like trying to sell something to someone they never really wanted in the first place.

      In 2007 I decided that affiliate marketing was more interesting to me.
      I can make money giving people what they want, I sell all kinds of products/services and make a % of the sale, some of the products I own so I make 100% of the sale.

      In April 2007 I joined "The Wealthy Affiliate University" to learn the strategies and techniques of affiliate marketing, they also have all the tools and resources you need to become successful at affiliate marketing.
      http://TheWiseAffiliate.com/features.php

      I'm still only doing this part time but I make on average 00 every month.
      No matter what niche your interested in you can make money from it with affiliate marketing.

  42. QUESTION:
    Is it worth it to go to an expensive college if....?
    okay to start off, my family is not like wealthy, my dad is an engineer but still..and anyways

    is it worth it to go to a college that costs around 45k per year IF i plan on becoming an engineering major (starting salary would be ~55k)
    and this college offers co-op programs that can pay around 15$/hr 40 hours a week for up to 18 months

    • ANSWER:
      I guess it depends on the quality of the co-op program. If you are talking about a really well known and respected co-op program (like Northeastern University), then I would say yes, it is absolutely worth it. I went to Northeastern, the co-op program really makes up for the extra cost. At Northeastern, almost everyone gets a co-op and most of those people get jobs offers from the places they worked at as a co-op. So you are trading off the extra cost for an increased chance of getting a job right out of college. If the co-op program isn't well known and isn't affiliated with very many workplaces, then I would be a bit more hesitant.

      And also, it is unlikely that you would have to cover the entire cost of the tuition. This may only be the case if your parents are rich and you're a terrible student (in which case your probably wouldn't get into the college).

  43. QUESTION:
    I feel so worthless all the time-advice?
    I'm in a graduate program and I called my dad this past weekend. He knows how hard the program is and how I've struggled in wondering if it's the right thing for me or not. My dad said to me I'm surprised you made it this far. The thing is he abused me when I was younger and I've been in and out of therapy for it but comments like that just hurt. I feel like I'm unable to make it through the rest of this program when people tell me all the time that I'm able to. I think I'm just depressed or something?

    • ANSWER:
      I myself am a medical student at UBC, Vancouver Canada. And I understand your feeling that sometimes our courseload maybe overwhelming to the point that we just want to give up.

      In times like this, I often like to watch motivational video such as "the secret" or visualize myself being in a positive environment that I enjoy. It helps alot! I am not sure if your dad has pressured you into entering this program even though you dont' want to get into it myself.

      But I can offer you a personal advice that I think will benefit you. Don't forget your potential and years of education into waste. Put those years of education into good use. The fact that you can use the internet and participate in yahoo answer means you have the potential to start an online business and build something that you actually like with your sparetime and earn a bit of money on the side.

      This is what I did during the 1st three year at UBC during my sparetime, I know that our education will only end up giving us a job in the end which you will soon realize is not what most people want to do for the rest of your life. What most people want in life is freedom both in time and money. The internet is the answer right in front of your eyes on how you can achieve that. It is the biggest leverage we have that will offer us true freedom.

      The best legitimate method to make money online is to start by promoting other people s product online through clickbank or amazon. There are literally thousands of products to choose from.

      Here s the overall guide on how to make money online using affiliate marketing.

      The general picture is:

      1) Niche selection/ Keyword research / Domain purchase/ Webhosting set up
      2)Website content building / landing page optimization/ Affiliate product selection
      3) Article marketing: free method to drive traffic
      4) SEO and backlinking technique

    Help with publishing a website?
    I have a website and am not sure how to make it to where someone can search and find it. I have some page preferences set in the yahoo small business website maker but I'm not sure if anyone is finding my website. Can anyone help?

    • ANSWER:
      You can either do what they call PPC marketing or article marketing.

      PPC- pay per click: you advertise using money and every time someone clicks on your advertisement you pay for it.

      Article marketing: the free method or bum method. this works by making back-links to your website and creating articles related to your website that have been search engine optimized (SEO).

      now don't stress out if you don't know what half this means i have a squidoo lens that goes over the art of article marketing. However as you learn more about article marketing and ppc i would suggest you join up with a group called Wealthy Affiliate University, they have a vast amount of resources that will be able to help you to advertise your website.

    Like Clinton was a puppet of the Rhodes Scholar One World Government Puppet Master

    And Bush is a 4th generation member of the Skull&Bones.

    So assuming someone is pulling O'Bama's strings ... who is it

    • ANSWER:
      On the day after the Potomac primaries, BusinessWeek ran a special report entitled, Is Obama Good for Business? While the piece provided no direct answer to this question, the attitude taken by the business magazine appeared to be a qualified yes, based in large part on the private discussions that the Illinois senator is holding with top Wall Street and corporate insiders even as he is delivering his public appeals for change.

      Thus, BusinessWeek noted, last Sunday, after learning of his victory in the Maine Democratic caucuses, Obama sat down at his computer to exchange emails with Robert Wolf, CEO of UBS America, one of his major Wall Street bundlers, responsible for bringing in millions in donations from fellow multi-millionaires to finance what Obama refers to as his movement. According to estimates made by the Center for Responsive Politics, 80 percent of the money raised by the Obama campaign last year came from donors affiliated with business, with Wall Street leading the pack. More than half of the money came in the form of donations totaling ,300 or more.

      In addition to Wolf, Obama stays in regular touch with Warren Buffett, the second-wealthiest individual in America, with a net worth of some billion. Among his leading economic advisors is Austan Goolsbee, a University of Chicago professor and prominent advocate of free market policies.

      The Volcker endorsement

      Perhaps most significant was last month s little reported endorsement of Obama by Paul Volcker, who was appointed Federal Reserve Board chairman by Democratic President Jimmy Carter in 1979 and remained in charge of the US central bank for nearly seven years under the right-wing Republican administration of Ronald Reagan.

      Volcker was responsible for inaugurating a high-interest-rate regime demanded by the dominant sections of finance capital in the name of the battle against inflation. His monetary policy was inextricably linked to the offensive against the working class begun with the firing of the air traffic controllers and the breaking of the PATCO strike and continued with the shutdown of large sections of basic industry and the unleashing of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The ultimate effect of these policies was a vast transfer of wealth from the mass of working people to a narrow financial elite, a process that has continued to this day.

      In a statement announcing his backing for Obama, Volcker noted that he had previously avoided involvement in partisan politics. He said that he was moved to intervene now not by the current turmoil in markets, but because of the breadth and depth of challenges that face our nation at home and abroad. He added, Those challenges demand a new leadership and a fresh approach. Obama s leadership, he concluded, would be able to restore needed confidence in our vision, our strength and our purposes right around the world.

      Larry Kudlow, the right-wing pundit and former Reagan administration economic advisor, commented on the endorsement earlier this month, noting that he had once worked as a speechwriter for Volcker and describing him as a great American... a classic conservative... a man of fiscal and monetary rectitude.

      Volcker, Kudlow wrote, would not have made this endorsement on a whim. Believe me. He never gets involved in these kinds of political decisions. He concluded by asking: Is Volcker the new Robert Rubin [the Wall Street insider who directed the Clinton administration s economic policy]? Is it possible that Mr. Volcker is somehow tutoring Obama? Is it possible that Obama is more financially conservative than originally believed?

      These are the real relations that are being forged behind the scenes as Obama delivers left phrases from the podium. Those like Volcker see the Illinois senator as a useful vehicle for effecting major changes aimed not at ameliorating the conditions of life for masses of working people, but rather at securing the global interests of American finance capital.

      No doubt, they believe Obama, who would be America s first African-American president, is best suited to confront the dangers posed by continuing economic crisis and rising social tensions. Who better to demand even greater sacrifices from the working class, all in the name of national unity and change? At the same time, he would present a fresh face to the world, which they hope would help extricate US imperialism from the foreign policy debacles and growing global isolation that are the legacy of the Bush administration.

      Given these big business ties, Obama s campaign rhetoric about confronting poverty and social inequality involve a level of cynicism and demagogy that is truly staggering. His incessant promises of change are not tied to any radical economic program that fundamentally challenges the profit interests of the giant corporations and Wall Street.

      On the contrary, Obama has advanced a conservative fiscal policy, pledging himself to a pay as you go approach and stressing the need to reduce debt and deficits. Given that he would take office with a near-record 0 billion deficit inherited from the Bush administration, this already determines an agenda of austerity measures.

      Clearly, the likes of Wolf, Buffett and Volcker are backing Obama because they know that he has no intention of going anywhere near such a policy.

      As for the question of war, those looking to the Obama campaign as a means of ending American militarism will be sorely disappointed. The Illinois Senator has vowed not to reduce the ballooning US military budget which consumes an estimated 0 billion annually but rather to increase it. He has called for the recruitment of another 65,000 soldiers for the Army as well as 27,000 more Marines. He has vowed to put more boots on the ground in the war on terror, the pretext invented by the Bush administration to justify preemptive war, i.e., military aggression aimed at asserting US hegemony over the oil-rich regions of the Middle East and Central Asia.

      As for Iraq itself, his promises to end the war are belied by his pledge to keep American forces in Iraq to defend US interests and conduct counterterrorism operations, a formula that would see tens of thousands of US soldiers and Marines continuing to occupy Iraq and repress its population for many years to come.

      To the extent that Obama s rhetoric arouses popular expectations and there are indications that it does these will inevitably be dashed. In all probability, this will happen once the primary season is over and Obama is confronted by the Republican right as well as elements within the Democratic Party itself with the demand that he clarify his program. Should he capture the White House in November, he will head an administration committed to defending the interests of the American oligarchy both at home and abroad.

      Those turning towards the Obama campaign as a means of effecting progressive social change in the US and bringing an end to US militarism abroad will find that the Democratic Party and the corporate and financial interests it represents will allow neither.

      These necessary goals can be achieved only through a decisive break with the Democrats and the entire two-party system and the independent mobilization of the working class through the building of a mass socialist movement.

  50. QUESTION:
    Are there any members of the Wealthy Affiliate University in India?
    Hi,
    If you are a WA members in India, and preferably in Kolkata city, can I please have your email address so that I can contact you?
    The reason is that I want to join the WA. But before that my parents want to have verified,and for a very good reason, that WA is an authentic, no-scam business and if it members really benefit from the program.
    We all know how much scam and illegal stuff there is in the Web. So doing business in the Web is ever risky. That's why I want to get it verified from WA members themselves. So if you are a member in Kolkata, or in India at the very least, can I please contact you? It's rather urgent because without verifying I can't join up for something over the Web.
    Thanks! :)

  3. QUESTION:
    Where are the best places to look for online affiliate marketers?
    Currently working for a company in Birmingham developing their sales strategy.
    I'm considering routes to market for a fantastic software product that's got some great clients already, but needs to find a larger-scale way of finding new customers.

    It's a software-as-a-service product which I think could work well for affiliate online marketing. But I've never used this approach myself before, does anyone have any tips for appointing affiliate marketers, any directories they can recommend, people they've used successfully before etc.?

    • ANSWER:
      As an affiliate manager I can tell you that there are many ways to find affiliates.

      First of all you must target your research to affiliates that deal with the products you are trying to promote.

      Once you have targeted your niche you can do:

      1. Web intelligence: You can use several tools as whois.com or aboutus.com to find the owner of the affiliate site

      2. Massive Recruitment: You can go to different forums and promote your affiliate program. (READ the rules of each forums they might ban you if you don't follow them)

      To recruit affiliates you need to have an organized system that will track, aid's, orders, click's and all the stats that you will need to clarify the affiliates status.

      If your company has an online store they surely have a tracking system, you should ask.

      Good Luck

  4. QUESTION:
    How can i use of online marketing techniques to offline marketing ?
    i want to use online marketing techniques to offline marketing and what should the benefit i get from this by doing this?

    • ANSWER:
      Use both. You must already be doing online marketing of your business. Here are some good examples of what you can do offline:

      1. Print out business cards and when you go someplace, ask if you can leave your business card.

      2 Print out flyer's and and hand them out to people leaving not entering
      the premises of a flea market and/or stick some flyer's under the windshield wipers.

      3. The economy is on your side, and so when you are in a group bring up the high price of something and get people to talk about what they are doing to survive and then hand out a flyer or business card or both.

      4. Go where people congregate and pick up on the conversations and join in, with the purpose of helping someone earn money to pay their bills.

      5. Print out small colorful flyer's that has about 10 tags hanging down with your website on -They will tear off one if they are interested-leaving 9 more. Post these on any bulletin in any supermarket and go back and check to see how many website tags are left-and replace.

      6. If you are promoting an affiliate program make sure you purchase a Domain name - $.99 - 1.99 at Go Daddy and then redirect it to your affiliate site.

      7. Go to the mall and purchase a Colorful t-shirt with your Domain name printed on the back. Wear this t-shirt when you are in the mall.
      Have printed something like this, "Earn Big Money Daily-Get Paid Daily.
      and then your domain name underneath. People will approach you, then hand them a business card.

  7. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had any real luck with online marketing and with what products?
    I know that online marketing can be tough, but has anyone had any real luck and with what products? I don't believe these products are so much scams as people get hooked with poor mentors.

    • ANSWER:
      Marketing training products, rather than affiliate products to sell?

      The tutorials by Chad H. are more candid and BS free than most courses, his latest Traffic Black Book 2 on Udemy.com touches on optimizing campaigns and making them profitable, has guest instructors like the maker of an advertising spy service, showing various market research tools.

  8. QUESTION:
    How does CPA (cost per acquisition), affiliate marketing, etc., work? Any success, experience, ideas?
    I have heard that things such as CPA marketing, email list marketing, affiliate, etc., are all ways some people have become millionaires at doing online.

    My questions and concerns are simple, and any of the following are opt-outs for me:

    1.Is CPA investment-free(i.e., do I need to invest money to have the possibility to make it)?

    2.Is the time put in equivalent to the money put out(i.e., I won't work 8 hours a day for 5 days a week to earn .00 only).

    3.Is money earned directly accessible, deposited, or in any way reachable to me(i.e., is the money made able to be withdrawn, is there minimum required limits to withdraw, etc.)?

    Also, does anyone here have experience with affiliate marketing, CPA marketing, and the like?

    I'd like some pointers here. I don't expect to be a millionaire overnight (though who wouldn't wish for that), but I don't want time, money, and efforts going to waste for little or no return. Thanks.

    PS: I have very, VERY little income as of now, and barely getting anywhere off my businesses/self-employment. I can't work most "real" hourly jobs like most people do for reasons I won't give here, and problems preventing me from doing so(none illegal/criminal related).

    • ANSWER:
      Answers to your questions:

      1. Is CPA investment-free?

      - It is free to join CPA Networks (or should be free otherwise AVOID) but as a beginner I would start off with affiliate marketing as CPA marketing is a lot more complex. Most of the top CPA networks will only accept already successful affiliates anyway.

      2. Is the time put in equivalent to the money put out?

      - That depends on the quality of the work that you put in. For example, writing a quick product review, and highlighting just the good features, will be time wasted. But writing a comprehensive and honest product review, including all the pros AND cons, will be time well spent. People search for product reviews to find real info because they can find the 'features' and 'best bits' on the product sales page.

      3. Is money earned directly accessible, deposited, or in any way reachable to me?

      - There are many affiliate networks that offer instant commissions. Some of the best ones to consider are:

      http://www.jvzoo.com
      http://rapbank.com
      https://www.digiresults.com
      http://paydotcom.com

      Also, there are many free affiliate marketing courses online for beginners. Here are a couple of highly recommended ones to get you started:

  9. QUESTION:
    As an online merchant looking to use affiliate marketing networks, do you get to choose your channel?
    I am researching online affiliate marketing. Say I am looking to sell something online. Let's also say I want to leverage affiliate marketing networks to advertise my product. As the merchant, is it common to have the ability to choose which type of advertising channel you are marketed to or is it more like a shotgun blast across the internet?

    Or is it the other way around... do the affiliates choose what is eventually advertised by their site?

      In http://www.FlexOffeers.com, as a merchant yes you can determine who joins your program and ultimately represents you online and what type of advertising will be allowed.

  10. QUESTION:
    I want to know how can I start market Affiliating? and which website I can rely on?
    I want to be a market affiliate but more or less clueless about it. Moreover, the different sites are just bragging about themselves and less about the real process. So can anyone point me to some good resources related to this topic? also which market affiliate site is genuine , please let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      ClickBank can be a profitable way to become an affiliate, but most users never get anywhere with it (or other online success) because they:
      * Give up too soon
      * Think it will be easy ("get rich quick online myths"). It actually takes time and lots of hard work.
      * Don't understand online marketing
      * Don't really, really know what is going on inside the minds of their prospects.
      * Sell instead of informing - nobody likes to be "sold at". Today s prospects are no fools. Use no hype, no marketeze, no unsubstantiated claims - don't "shout" and don't "expect to get married on the first date", so to speak.

      First, do you want to be a publisher/vendor or an affiliate (selling vendor's goods for them)?
      The big money is in being a vendor - if you can attract the best affiliates.

      Yes, you must have a web site or blog. Do a Yahoo or Google search on "blog marketing" to find out how to get blog visitors (no quotes) - it's much too big a subject for here.

      ClickBank tips - from the point-of-view of a vendor (reverse them if you're an affiliate):
      * Top affiliates (you don't want any other kind) will not promote your site/product if you can't prove that it has a decent SCR (Sales Conversion Rate = percent of visitors who buy). They will NEVER fix your site for you nor make your new site start selling for you. You yourself must make your site fairly successful before anyone will be interested.

      * Don't be stingy with your affiliate commission. Give them at least 50%. Many give 70% or even the top ClickBank allows - 75% to their affiliates. Remember that these are sales that would never exist without those affiliates, so the small percent you get is pure cream.

      * Provide pages with affiliate tools on your site or blog. Like banner images, best key words, etc.

      * Do a search on "ClickBank" and "affiliate marketing" (no quotes) to find forums that will tell you much more and fill in the details.

      * There are good ebooks on affiliate marketing to be bought on these forums - but don't go for any that claim quick riches or you don't need to do anything or know anything - those are just scams.

      * See the links below for marketing resources.

  11. QUESTION:
    What is wealth creation? How can I make money online without having internet expearience? ?
    Hi
    I want to know how I can make around 5,000 per month online. I want to get the rata race. I have seen many things about online marketing, especially ebooks! and affiliate marketing, can someone help me out :-)

    • ANSWER:
      To be honest most programs are just hype. To really make it takes time. Dont believe the hype of making twenty grand a month because they will get your hopes high to just leave you high and dry. I know this is not what you want to hear but its true. To get out of the rat race you need passive income to surpass your current expenses.

      That means money coming in whether you work or not. There a couple ways to do this to get there fast. Like create websites that offer real products like dvds, tvs, and ipods. . .etc.

      You can refer people to membership sites and get a commission in exchange. So if you can get people to sign up for a membership site at dollars a month you just need three people to sign up make close to 0 a month. And just keep growing from there.

      Or get a reseller hosting account for account and sell hosting for a site. You can make 0 a month from here and grow from there. Don't believe all the answers about making 00 a day its all garbage.

      To get out of the rat race it takes work and dilligence but it can be done!

      You can also flip sites for quick cash and invest into bigger projects from there

I've built a very good business from home that I make a residual income. I now have the time for my family and to be able to do the things that I want to do.

    How to start an online dating site, or a profitable online business and be successful?
    I'm interested in starting an online business that works. I would consider a dating site, casino site, or other websites that work. I would like to know how I can get stated. I have lots of online experiance. I have looked at many different companies that provide online dating, and casino sites built and read to run. How legit are they, and are their claims for success accurate? They average in price from 9-,000. I don't have a lot of money especially to throw away in a scam. What are my best options. I've done ebay, and a few of the online marketing scams that don't work. I'm billingual, English and Spanish, have a two year general degree working on my B.a in business management. I'm receptive to working with other people on a new idea that we can market online, have a few ideas myself just don't know how to get started, can someone lead me in the right direction?

    • ANSWER:
      Starting an online business is not at all a great deal!!! However making it profitable is the real challenge for any online marketer.If you want to make money online, that's great, but you need a system. You need to follow the strategies which are aleready tried n tested & are used by the champions who could make their fortune on the internet. Don't re-invent the wheel - don't make the mistake of wasting time and money in developing a product.Because you know nothing (I believe so) at the moment about internet marketing. So you must work with someone who can prove their system - be cautious and careful. You need to crawl first before you can walk or run - the best way to learn is to become an Affiliate Marketer. The main advantage with affiliate marketing is that -suppose the product you are promoting is not selling well due to some reason, you can drop that product & chose something else to sell.In short as an affiliate you are essentially a free-lance marketer - not bound by long-term contracts having a freedom to review / revise / remould your plans as per the demand in the market . (To see the changing demand in the market have a look at these http://buzzyahoo.notlong.com &

      There are lots of people out there there -- people just like you -- who are enjoying the financial freedom that comes with successful affiliate marketing.

    • ANSWER:
      Affiliate programs uses a simple concept for you to create an income online: Earn commissions when you make a sale. You don't need to worry about the costs for setting up the business nor advertising. It costs zero! When we think of successful online businesses, websites such as: Amazon.com (biggest online bookstore), eBay.com (largest auction website), Yahoo.com (most well-known search engine) usually spring into mind. On the contrary, you probably have heard of dot-com companies turned dot-bombs. So you think, How do I make money on the internet when I don t have money to advertise like those big guys such as Amazon.com or Yahoo.com?

      Well, you don t need money to make money! There are several ways to make money through the internet, and one of them is through affiliate programs. Best of all, it costs nothing to sign up!

      What are affiliate programs? Isn t it just another get-rich quick plot or some hocus-pocus that s all a scam?

      Affiliate programs (also known as referral/associate programs) are legitimate and not get-rich-quick scams. It s a simple concept: Earn commission for each sale you make. As a matter of fact, even big guys like Amazon.com launched affiliate programs to fuel their sales and to increase their brand, hence that further proves my point that affiliate programs aren t scams.

      How Affiliate Programs Work

      Using Amazon.com as an example, here s an illustration on how affiliate programs work

      An affiliate (let s call her Lily ) owns a website about movie-making, so she chose a few books related to her website including the best-seller How to Write a Hollywood Movie Script in 5 minutes!

      Lily then puts unique links to each of these books on her website that enables Amazon to identify the visitor she sends. One of Lily s visitors was so impressed by Lily s review on the book How to Write a Hollywood Movie Script in 5 minutes! that she wanted to buy it immediately, the visitor then saw Buy it now on Amazon.com! . CLICK!

      The visitor enters the Amazon site, Amazon identifies this visitor is from Lily. The visitor then checks out with the book and pays using credit card. Lily is paid a commission on that sale!

      Affiliate Programs vs. Selling Your Own Products on the Web

      Sure enough as a web merchant, you get 100% of the profits made. But you will have to fuss with start-up costs, advertising, marketing, shipping, credit-card processing, products/ services to maintain, customer services, customer complaints, web hosting, accounting, staff training

      Phew! That s a lot work! But

      As an affiliate, you don t need your own products to sell; you don t need to incur the costs: Your start-up cost is zero; and you don t have to deal with the customers orders or accounting or all the above because the merchant will handle all these for you. In some affiliate programs, you can also recruit and train sub-affiliates under you. Your training pays off when your sub-affiliate gets a sale, because you earn training commission too. I ll get more in-depth about this later in the article.

      But I m not a computer or internet-savvy person! I don t have a website too!

      Don t worry! An effective affiliate finds thousands of ideas to sell online, or offline! You can advertise locally in newspapers, in articles you write, recommend it to friends, notice boards, etc There are no limits.

      Great! How do I start?

      As easy as it sounds, I m sad to say that it s not a piece of cake if you plan to sit there and wait for the cash to come to you. In the affiliate business, it follows the 80-20 rule 80% of the benefit is only achieved by 20% of the affiliates. So if you want to get rich quick, affiliate program isn t for you but if you want to be one of the 20% affiliates who get 80% of the benefit read on.

      First of all, ask yourself why you want to start an affiliate business on the internet

      Um to earn some cash and buy things I want

      No, I want you to be as specific as possible

      For example, I want to increase my income so that I can afford a sports car and have the ultimate sense of pride when I drive into the yard of my friends who said that I will never succeed in making money on the internet! I want my friends to be envious; I want to prove them wrong!

      When you know what you want and the more specific you get, the stronger your commitment, determination and persistence to succeed will be.

      I know it sounds really corny, but it is a simple rule that the 80% affiliates don t follow!

      Secondly, you must

      Choose a Good Affiliate Program

      There are many affiliate programs out there but you need to focus on the ones that work for you. I suggest a few good criteria to look for in affiliate programs:

      1) High-value products/services

      When I said value , I don t mean the price tag. Let s say, you are an affiliate for 2 companies which are in similar industries, both offering 30% commission. One sells its product for and the other for

    • ANSWER:
      First I recommend you get some good hosting, I recommend http://www.hostmonsterplus.com .
      Then build a site with all the information about your products.
      After your site is complete start using the free Google credits that came with http://www.hostmonsterplus.com to start some advertising.
      After you start to make some money, prepare an affiliate program so you pay maybe $x per sale or % or $x sale to the person who finds you the sale. Then you have your own sales team in essence, but only pay them when you make money.

      I'd start focusing on some ideas like these.

      The reasons why I use http://www.hostmonsterplus.com as my host?

      http://www.hostmonsterplus.com is best for both price and quality.
      These are just some of my reasons:
      It comes with built in Site builders and a range of CMS's.
      It supports PHP, MySQL, and almost anything you'll need.
      It comes with a free domain name... ex: whateveryouwant.com
      It has unlimited storage and bandwidth.
      You can also add an unlimited amount of domain names.
      So with one account you can have many different .com websites. I have about 14 right now all on one account.
      Only .95 per month. ( 29 Per Year)
      They also give you free Google Credits for advertising your site.

      I've been using them for 4 years and I'll give them my thumbs up.

      Best of luck whatever decision you make.

    How can you tell if an online marketing opportunity is for real?
    I have seen many affiliate marketing opportunities one i'm particularly interested in but I don't know how to tell if it is genuine or if it is just a huge waste of time and money? What guidelines should I use to measure each opportunity by?

    • ANSWER:
      Making money online can be tricky. Especially for someone that's completely new to the idea. The best part about affiliate marketing is that it should never cost you money to be an affiliate, you can promote as many products at the same time as you like, you don't need to stock any products, and you don't need to worry about customer service. As far as knowing where to start. I started with a free video course I found. It answered a lot of questions for me and helped me get going in the right direction making money on the internet as a marketer. The site is called www.cashdailyvip.com and like I said the video training is completely free.

      I just have to recommend one thing. Stay away from the idea of blasting you products on social sites. You could get kicked off for spamming.

  34. QUESTION:
    What are the most searched key words/sentences on the internet?
    It has to be about business and online marketing... I need it to attract leads to my blog.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not going to hazard a guess if that's all you need it for, it's an over simplistic approach to target the highest volume searches, best paying Adsense keywords or highest paying affiliate program. In paid advertising the 'hot' marketing keyword click cost is driven way up by bidding, in organic search, that most searched term is going to be targeted by many more highly respected sites, if you do get search ranking for it you will probably be on one of the back pages where almost no one goes.
      Small timers sometimes have to go for the crumbs on the side of the cake that don't have thousands of other, superior sites trying to rank for.
      More and more as quality filtering becomes more of a factor, it's getting more effective to just write good articles on a subject, your bound to get some long-tail keyword matches and the search engines may figure out your topic and show you searches you don't literally match.

      Interesting the most profitable direct typed keywords that get traffic without search engines, may be Insure and Sex, who's domain names sold for Million and Million.

  35. QUESTION:
    Is there a definitive guide to online marketing?
    I am looking for something which gives excellent insight into affiliate marketing, online advertsing networks, PPC, SEO, CPC, CPM, CPA, blogs, forums and marketing on social networks, Web 2.0 etc. Also has to be current content - not something written in 2002 or something - less than a year or 2 old

    • ANSWER:
      There is no definitive guide as such, but there are some great resources out there to help. There's a site called utalkmarketing.com which has a digital section- http://www.utalkmarketing.com/Speciality.aspx?nav=speciality_digital
      It has a best practice section with case studies and also a basic info section if you are starting from scratch. The great thing is, they are all written within the last 6 months or so. Another way in is to look at some books although a lot of these are too old as online marketing is constantly changing. There's one i use called 'Marketing Through Search Optimization: How to Be Found on the Web' which is a good jumping off point and was written in the last 2 years. I hope this helps.

  36. QUESTION:
    Of all the 700,000,000 ways to make money online, which one actually works?
    I would like to know which online program / affiliate program that would enable me to make a decent living. Maybe start an online store of my own? I would need to make about ,000 net a month to cover current financial needs. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Bgood is offering you a scam of the first class as a reward for your doubts. Her story is actually not hers, it travels around the world for a decade now.

      Now to your question: The only online programs that really work are those you control with your own website (not company replicated), with products and services you believe in and that are in demand by the majority of population, which in turn you can market worldwide with the use of Internet.

      Product and service must have a repeat customers so you do not have to constantly look for a new buyers. I am forwarding you a link with a lot of detailed information on how it actually works, including real case studies and real contacts to people who had actually done it.

      ,000.00 a month net is very realistic to achieve in very short period of time with much higher growth potential. Just take your time and read it all.

      P.S.
      GDI for example was offered to me by many people during the last 7 years but I still have to find one person who is making at least ,000.00 a month net consistently for at least one year.

  37. QUESTION:
    A job that does nothing so I can focus on my internet business at work?
    I work at an Online Marketing agency, in the UK. I like it, but I hate having to work for some else. Plus everyone chats a lot at work when I really need to concentrate to get the job done.

    I have been trying to make my fortune online for a while. Tried selling things on eBay, affiliate marketing through Google AdWords, selling information products on ebay, and finally, creating an information website. I have much hope for my latest venture.

    I often work 1-2 hours on my side projects during week days before or after work. I am dedicated, and I believe it will eventually bring me and my family a lot of freedom.

    Currently, I am thinking of quitting my job. It is causing me a lot of stress due to the fact I am asked to do a lot of work, while the working environment is totally disruptive with everyone constantly talking.

    So, coming to my question, what job can I do that requires very little work? so I can bring in my laptop and concentrate on making my money online.
    Thank you for everyone that's answered!

    To clarify, the reason I want to do this is to pay the rent and bills while developing my online business.

    I am not looking to NOT do my work at a job. I am simply looking for a job that requires little work.

    What do you think abourt wholesale dropshipping?
    I am going to open an online business utilizing affiliate marketing. I want people's opinions about wholesale dropshipping. Is it profitable? Do you really need to pay a monthly fee? How do you really make money if you have to pay fees? Is it worth it?

    • ANSWER:
      Mate you haven't done enough research into this obviously, as you are asking questions which show that. I have been in the industry before and can tell you're not ready to begin.

      1) Yes it's profitable if done right, but no one is going to teach you that on Yahoo Answers, you need to go research. Be prepared to lose money and make mistakes at the start.
      2) No you dont need to pay a monthly fee. Go research. There are many places which will charge, and many free. Go straight to manufacturers or wholesalers if you must.
      3) You make money by pricing your products right. Target specific niches if you can. Drive traffic to the sites. And convert! Thats the formula.
      4) Not worth it unless you have a passion and really want to do it. Otherwise you'd be like the 98% of other people who get on, fail, and quit, and make it profitable for people like me who get in and dont stop til I succeed.

  12. QUESTION:
    Do you or have you made any money online besides doing Get Paid To offers?
    I am trying to find a way to make money online. I would like some ideas on what to do. I do make a little from doing offers and such but besides that.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, I have some buddies that buy stuff from craigslist or ebay and then turn around and sell it for more money. Just make sure you are getting solid deals on stuff. For instance if it is spring and you come across hunting stuff or fishing stuff, buy it cheap when nobody is looking for it, then sell it come fall when everyone is looking for the stuff.

      Also here is a great site my wife and I use for making money online. It's called swagbucks. Here is the link.

  13. QUESTION:
    Are there any legit ways to make money online?
    Are there any legit ways to make money online? Other than selling stuff on ebay and craigslist. I'm looking for more of a stay-at-home job.

    • ANSWER:
      There are 1000 scams for every legit opportunity, and the "legit" ones pay just a few dollars a month. You will find nothing that produces a real income.

      Expect many spam/scam replies.

      Ignore any answer that includes a referral link - virtually a guarantee of a scam.

      Anything that requires an upfront payment is 100% certain a scam.

      EDIT: One last warning specific to Yahoo Answers. You can mouse over any user icon to see when the account was created. You can right-click on an icon to see a user profile. Older accounts tend to be reliable contributors. Very recent accounts should be viewed with some skepticism.

      If an account only answers "make money online" type questions, be very wary.

    What are some ligt way to make fast money online?
    Im trying to find a way to make extra money online btu I cant seem to find a liget place. Can some one help me find one please.

    • ANSWER:
      There are NO means to make quick money on-line [full stop].
      Or you sell a product,
      Or your site has one million visitors a month,
      Or you make your own scam and rob gullible people.
      ALL other means will pay you 1 or 2$ a month, if you are lucky.
      (If you are a pretty girl or a handsome man, don't mind adult sites, be a model on WebCams. That pays a bit...)

    • ANSWER:
      I know that Youtubers get paid to make videos. If you do a good job and get a lot of views, Youtube will pay you just filming yourself. How cool is that? It just takes creativity and knowing how to advertise well. Also, it takes time but it'll be worth it in the end. The money and the experience :) Just an idea for fun! Good luck! This goes the same for making your own website. But you have to know again how to advertise and know who your target group is.

  18. QUESTION:
    What websites are available for making money online for teenagers?
    Im 16 and i need money!! ok so if there are anyy good websites i can use to make money online it will be great! thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Triond:
      http://www.triond.com/rw/364208

      You get paid by #views. It is not too much of earnings unless you write lots of articles and gain constant viewers (i.e. having your articles on top of google or yahoo search). Triond is also associated with Google Adsense, which is a good source of income.

      It should be noted that many people try this field, then leave because they don't see good income. Few succeed because of their hard work and creativity to attract viewers. It all depends on the person and what he/she really wants.

      Another good method, which comes by experience, is blogging. This is by far the best method to make money online. But it requires lots of work and dedication.

  19. QUESTION:
    Are there any ways to make money online that actually work?
    I have done quite a bit of searching and I have run into a lot of sites that say they can make me a lot of money. They all seem like scams though. Is there any site that will actually make me money online?

    • ANSWER:
      I make a living online, last month I made a little better than k. I rarely work more than four hours in a day, my average is probably closer to two.

      That all said, I am the exception. Most people do not make a very good living working from home.

      When I got started, I was using http://www.eIance.com to find projects that I could do for pay. More recently I found that http://www.scriptIance.com is a very good place to find work without the higher fees that elance has.

      Nowadays, I am past looking for work as I have been doing this long enough that work just comes to me. But before you make a name for yourself, you need to use a site like one of the above to get going.

      There are of course other ways to make money online, like affiliate marketing. Marketing is fantastic, but you need to either be very lucky, or really know what you are doing.

  20. QUESTION:
    What can I do to make money online without spending money?
    I want to make some money online, a job, work. But without spending money. What can I do?

    • ANSWER:
      1. Join Clickbank
      2. Find a product or products to sell (niches to avoid are weight loss and internet marketing)
      3. Do keyword research to find low competition, high buyer traffic keywords.
      4. Create a free blog on blogger or wordpress
      5. Write about 5 to 7 blog entries using keywords
      6. Write a ton of articles about your niche using researched keywords
      7. Submit the articles to various directories (Ezinearticles, Articlebase, Hubpages etc...)
      8. Social Bookmark your articles (stumbledupon, reddit, fark, mister wong, etc)
      9. Submit your RSS blog feed to RSS directories
      10. Rinse and repeat!

      This works, but only if you work it. You have to write at least 1 to 2 blog entries per week and 3 to 5 articles per day. You do that and you should start making money.

  21. QUESTION:
    Where can I find Ebooks that tell me how to ACTUALLY make money online?
    I know there are ways to actually make money online but I really have no clue where to start. For this reason I thought it would be a good idea to get a few Ebooks on different topics and see what I want to do first.
    Does anyone know where I can get good Ebooks about this for a reasonable price?

    • ANSWER:
      Brett McFall's book called 'How to Make Money While You Sleep' is very good. He got me started making money online. You can get a sample free chapter here http://www.brettmcfall.com/chapter.html

      All the best, Mark

    I'm looking for ways to make money online without spending any money therefore I do not have any money to spend.So if you have any good ideas feel free to give me your answers. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      http://goodsurveysites.com Its what I do and it's worked out pretty well. What you have to do is complete surveys and offers for companies that want the public's opinion. No payment from you is ever required, not to sign up, not EVER.

      The sites don't get paid directly from you, but when you complete an offer or survey, they also get paid a small portion of what you earned yourself. For example, if you complete a survey about computers let's say, you would earn maybe and the web site itself would recieve [FAQ-ANSWER].50 from the company also for getting you to complete the survey. These surveys take little time at all, most taking up less than even 1 or 2 minutes of your time.

      They don t need any information other than your name, email address and your home address. Yup, that is all. No credit card information, no banking information, nothing like that. All they require is your name and address so that your cheque can be sent to your home every month.

      Personally I have been a member of these websites, along with thousands of other satisfied users, for approximately 1.5 years now and have earned well over 00 by working in my spare time. This web site has been great to me, also the members and administrator are very friendly, and are always there to help you with a question or problem you may be having. I give you my word that they pay.

    How do I make money online from my home?
    Does anyone know any ways of making money online from home? No scams please, im tired of them already. I would appreciate any ideas, thank you

    • ANSWER:
      There are many different ways that are not scams, most however will require you to do a lot of work and learn, there is no such thing as a quick few grand, all those are scams.

      - you can start a blog and gain a readership, then monetize it with ads
      - you can try affiliate marketing
      - you may offer a consulting service online if you have a skill (e.g. graphic design)
      - you can become a freelance writer, lots of work for those around
      - you may become a freelance programmer

      It all depends on your skills and how hard you're willing to work.

  26. QUESTION:
    Is there a legitimate way to make money online?
    I need some extra cash. Is there a legitimate way to make some money online?

    • ANSWER:
      I've been making money online for years. I don't know of anything that will make rich or is overly quick, but it can bring in several hundred to several thousand dollars each year. There are a few ground rules--never pay anyone anything to make money. Something real isn't go to ask you for cash. That's the biggest hint it is a scam (and there are more scams than legitimate ways to make money).

      Writing is a big way (I even write for Yahoo) To learn about writing see http://webupon.com/money-making/how-to-make-money-writing-2/. If you go that route, I'd also check out http://writinghood.com/writing/building-your-brand-to-make-money-online/

      Surveys, which are tedious and not overly reliable are another way. http://webupon.com/money-making/how-to-get-paid-to-take-surveys/ tells you about how all that works.

      Small ways to make a few extra hundred exists in get paid to sites. http://bizcovering.com/marketing-and-advertising/five-legitimate-ways-to-make-money-online/ has a list/plan of a way to do that. This plan only takes a few minutes per day. Along the same lines of information you can check out http://webupon.com/money-making/how-to-earn-extra-cash-with-paid-to-click-websites/ or http://bizcovering.com/marketing-and-advertising/how-to-make-money-online-doing-tasks-for-cash/ or http://bizcovering.com/business/how-to-earn-money-reading-email/

    What are some good ways to make money online without spending money?
    No scammers or spammers please. I'm looking for legit ways to make money online. If you have any ideas, please feel free to share. Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      I just answered a similar question so I'll copy and paste my answer for you:

      *Important* There aren't many safe ways of making money online, most are scams (remember if you have to "invest" or pay money first to join a money making programme then theres a 99% chance that its a scam, never give out your credit card details online, and always do your research first!)

      1) Google Adsense
      This is a good option if you have your own website that gets 1000+ hits a day. You can place ads from google on your website and earn money each time a visitor clicks on them (usually about 1 -5 cents a click). I only recommend this if you're site is popular. Creating a site just for google adsense isn't a good idea because you're not going to make much money with spam websites anyway .

      2) A much better way to make money online: Have you heard of iHerb.com? They are a reputable online store for good quality vitamins & supplements. iHerb is rated the #1 online store for vitamins by consumerlab.com. iHerb offers a referral programme and pays you for word of mouth advertising.. If you refer customers you can earn a percentage of their purchase (sort of like commission). It won't make you rich but you can expect to earn about a month without spending any of your own money. Please note you need to have your own customer account to do this so if you have shopped at iherb previously you can check out the referral programme (or even if you haven't shopped with them just buy something for or so to get started):

      1. If you don't have an iherb account just buy something for less than and remember to use the coupon code NIV621 to get off. so its bascially free.
      2. Then log in to your account and activate your referral code. Your referral code is a coupon code (like mine above lol ) which you can give out to potential customers.
      3. Post your coupon code on websites like retailmenot.com, myretailcodes.com or fatwallet.com
      4. When soemeone enters your coupon code you can earn up to 10% comission from their purchase. how cool is that?
      5. When you have over 0 iherb will send you a cheque or you can use the money to buy products from their website.

      Good luck and if you found this helpful please use my coupon code =)

    • ANSWER:
      The only way I know of to earn money online without spending money in the first place is survey sites. I'm 16 and don't have a credit so I had to obviously look for ways to earn without purchasing any videos, books, or any of that stuff advertised claiming to earn you money. Survey sites do work and aren't scams but the only bad thing about them is that they pay very little. You can probably only earn a month in spare time and that's pretty much it.

  40. QUESTION:
    what is your most frustrating thing about making money online?
    What really frustrates you about learning or, finding out how to make money online or, pursue a career online?

    • ANSWER:
      The main frustrations I have about making money online are:

      1 - That people do not believe that it can be done. These are folks who simply do not know how or those who thinks that being an employee is the only thing to make a living

      2 - Many want the to get rich quick, and ends up failing and/or getting scammed

      3 - Many do not read the fine print, especially the business opportunities and they end up getting scammed

      4 - Folks hear of success stories (e.g. those earning through Google Adsense program), then try to do it and earn from Adsense only to find that there is more to it than slapping the Adsense code on their website

      Ignore people who doesn't believe it can be done. Go to solid forums such as WebmasterWorld.com where you can find website owners earning from advertising programs, and talking about ways to monetize their websites (though you won't find them talking about bizopps).

    • ANSWER:
      Learn how to run an affiliate program, if you have enough time to research it then that may work, people have become very successful doing affiliate programs, but it takes a lot of time to learn how to do it right and make money from it and its free to try!

      If you want to build websites, make your own website advertising website builds. make sure you can produce good quality work and you may get a couple of customers that will pay you at least 10 an hour.

      One other way if you have pay pal, is maybe start eBay trading, I know you are too young to sign up, but if you get a relative to do it and find a good product that is currently in high demand that you can easily and/or cheaply get hold of, give it a go.

      Just be careful, you can loose money on the internet easier than making it. Do A LOT of research before you get into anything.

      Good Luck!

  42. QUESTION:
    How to make money online and be successful?
    Want a way to make money online, perhaps start a website providing goods, or something, anything like that. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated : ) Please no stupid adsense, and get rich quick schemes, I have tried these all and they are just pyramid schemes which you can get nowhere with.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay John,

      No MLM. No get rich quick schemes.

      Adsense can make you serious money but we'll stay away for now.

      It's sounds like you're just starting out and are getting tired of all the empty promises or programs not performing like they say. The most important thing I want to say is don't get discouraged. This really can change your life if you can wade through all the B.S. to find some truth...it exists.

      If you don't understand the difference between a system and a course that involves core training you will be spinning you wheels and wasting money for a long while.

      The best advice I can give to newbie internet marketers that truly want to create the lifestyle of their choice, whatever it may be, is to stay away from "systems" in the beginning.

      You'll have plenty of time to use and/or promote these systems but at the beginning stick to courses that offer core training and live phone support. They are few and far between but they do exist.

      You're more than welcome to send me an email through yahoo. Just click my name next to this answer and get my email address. If you want I'll even give you my phone number so you can ask me anything you need to.

      I've been where you are, and I can tell by what you said in your description that you need some honest help. I'm here to tell you, if you don't get it soon, it's highly likely you'll write all this internet marketing stuff off as hype and scams.

      That would truly suck.

  47. QUESTION:
    What is the easiest way to make money online without getting scammed?
    I am looking for ways to make money online without the hassle, and the possiblity of being scammed. I heard and saw bogus websites, those that ask for your credit card number and I'm not into all that. So, does anyone know of good legit ways to make money online pretty fast?

    • ANSWER:
      http://goodsurveysites.com Its what I do and it's worked out pretty well. What you have to do is complete surveys and offers for companies that want the public's opinion. No payment from you is ever required, not to sign up, not EVER.

      The sites don't get paid directly from you, but when you complete an offer or survey, they also get paid a small portion of what you earned yourself. For example, if you complete a survey about computers let's say, you would earn maybe and the web site itself would recieve [FAQ-ANSWER].50 from the company also for getting you to complete the survey. These surveys take little time at all, most taking up less than even 1 or 2 minutes of your time.

      They don t need any information other than your name, email address and your home address. Yup, that is all. No credit card information, no banking information, nothing like that. All they require is your name and address so that your cheque can be sent to your home every month.

      Personally I have been a member of these websites, along with thousands of other satisfied users, for approximately 1.5 years now and have earned well over 00 by working in my spare time. This web site has been great to me, also the members and administrator are very friendly, and are always there to help you with a question or problem you may be having. I give you my word that they pay.

    How can i make money online without spending money anyone have any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      You could do affiliate work or write an ebook about something you know then sell it.
      There's some people who make you a professional page for it for just but I don't DARE posting a link to them as some so called Top Contributors are deleting anything with links (and not!), so I suggest you get off the site and use google.
      when you get going you can write more ebooks and keep on selling them, it's a good
      method and eventually you will have a portfolio of ebooks.
      Make sure there are links in them with a linkback to your selling page so people might buy more.
      Never overprice them, a couple of $ is a good price to get started..

Is there any good free newsletter email list service out there that I can use? I have tried Yahoo groups and it is not what I am looking for. Thanks!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hmm. Don't know if you'll find one completely free..other than your basic email hosts and sending it manually! But....I use Campaign Monitor. (www.campaignmonitor.com) It's only to set up a mass email campaign, then one cent per address.

      So you can send up to 500 for less than 10 bucks. Not quite free...but pretty darn good! They have templates you can use or you can load your own, and they will also manage your list(s) for you - removing people that unsubscribe or mark your email as "spam", which is nice.

  5. QUESTION:
    How can i get a mailing list for citizens of the usa?
    How can i get a Email list of citizens liveing in the usa? I have a VERY VERY important mesage that needs to be told.

    • ANSWER:
      I will try to give you some helpful info, I hope:

      You need a leads database.

      A Lead List is simply a database list of compiled information. The actual info each list may provide vary widely, but may contain info such as name, address, city, county, state, area code, phone number, zip, email address, etc. (So, it is a very good idea to look closely at exactly what info is being provided before making any purchases).

      Now the bad news...or maybe it's not so bad.

      A good list cost something, They aren't free. However, you might be surprised at just how cheap they are now-a-days. The prices have really come down to quite reasonable, as compared to the days when only the big corporations could afford them.

      For the USA I'm not sure of cost, but I will add 2 links in the 'Source's' below, for you to check out. The links can answer your question much more in detail.

      1. Is a link to a recent article I wrote on this subject. The link should take you directly to the correct page of the article.

      2. Is a link to a company on the net which I recommend, named: www.DBShack.com - I mention them in the article, and for sure they would have what you are looking for, and I bet your surprised just how cheap it will be.

      Good Luck to You

  7. QUESTION:
    Marketing Experts: How do You Convert Your Direct Mail Recipients to Email?
    I run a nonprofit and our main marketing asset is a direct mail list of 50,000 names - but all physical addresses. Our email list pales by comparison - and in fact pales in comparison to most of our competitors. We would LOVE to convert our snailmail list to email, but it's a challenge. Are there best practices for getting your list off of the very expensive and time consuming direct mailings and onto email? Thanks for any suggestions.

    • ANSWER:
      I suspect you would want to mail out an invitation to a sign up at a web site. Email is somewhat more tightly regulated than postal mail, some measures are required to remain legal and to not get blacklisted by email postmasters.

      To conform to the U.S. can-spam regulations you generally have to ask people to opt-in to your mailing list, for best deliverability rates and for help conforming to regulations one can employ an email list management services like Aweber.com, they actually prefer a "double op-in" in which users first sign up on a web site then verify their registration in an email reply. Aweber provides the email submission form that you install on your site that communicates directly with their site.

      Marketers who live off email lists will often setup opt-in capture pages offering some sort of incentive like a small free ebook to get them to sign up.

      You could throw in an opt-in form in the easy to type-in home page address of your existing site (rather in some lengthy inner page address they would have to transcribe off a postcard), or for better conversion from a mailed out invitation by having a short easy to type in domain name for a page optimized for maximum conversion.

      Aweber is the biggest of the 'autoresponder' mail services designed to mail out a pre-programmed email message sequence starting day one as each user opts in, there are others like ConstantContact geared more for email blasts to the entire list at once.

      Here's a comparison of some popular email services:

    What is the easiest way to create my own video blog?
    Hello!

    I would like to start a video blog, but I don't know much about it. I would like to be able to create short videos and use some kind of service that sends an email to my mailing list telling recipients that a new video has been posted on my blog. Can someone tell me the easiest way to get started... and the easiest service(s) and editing software to use to achieve this goal? Recommendations on camera and microphone would be helpful. Also, if you know how to apply a white background to block out the original background, I would appreciate this info as well.

    I just started doing internet marketing which means I dont have the money to pay for leads yet,so I need to know are there any free email list/directory web sites out there?

    • ANSWER:
      Personally I wouldn't recommend you buy a mailing list primarily because the quality of the lists tends to be poor.

      Good mailing lists services tend to sell on a per contact basis, something like 30 cents per contact. You can only use the mail list once, so you have to create some way of getting the contact to join your own personal list.

      I recommend you build your own list using PPC & email marketing software.

  15. QUESTION:
    How do I disassociate a free personal email account from a small business email account?
    My wife has a small business email account from her company that was associated with her free personal email account. So both accounts share the same password. She wants to disassociate them so each could have its own password. How could this be done? I look around on the email options and could not find a place that shows the other account. However, at the top of the email front page, she could see both accounts and could switch over back and force.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      You should NEVER use the same password for more than one account - ever. If the accounts are associated, then the only way to separate them, is to open a new account with no mention of the other account at all. Then, you can delete the old one, or just ignore it and allow Yahoo to close it due to inactivity. Unless, of course the company opened these accounts that way, then you should not touch them at all. If that is the case, you can still open your very own personal Yahoo account totally separate from the business accounts.
      Or, leave it as it is, and CHANGE the password.
      To change your Yahoo password:
      In upper right corner of screen, look for, then click on "Options:"
      Options / mail options
      Click on 'account information' in the list left of screen
      Enter your password
      Click on 'Change your password,' under Sign-in and security
      type your old password, then your new password
      type in your new password again to confirm, then click on 'Save'

  16. QUESTION:
    How do I divide my emails into catagories like family, glutenfree?
    I would like to divide the family contacts into one group so I can email all @ once or business all @ once. Also in the email listing I would like all the Gluten Free emails all in one group so I can read & delete what I want.

    • ANSWER:
      For the first question, Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo Mail and most other email clients you can create a list of email addreses. Then just add that list to the BCC: (Blind carbon copy) header when preparing the email if you do not want each recipient to see who else was sent the email. Using CC: (carbon copy) is fine for a short list of email addresses or when everyone on the list knows everyone else but is bad form for a list of business contacts. As for the second question, I think you are talking about incoming emails. Check if your email client has filters or labels so that you can automatically group or label incoming email based on the sender or the phrase "Gluten Free" in the body of the email.

  17. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to send an email to more than 100 addresses at one time?

      My friend had this same problem and I was receiving those Canadian Pharmacy emails from her.
      1-Run your anti-virus program if you have one. If you do not have one you can download Microsoft Security Essentials for free.
      2-Change your Yahoo password in case someone figured it out and gained access to your Yahoo account.
      3-If you have sent forwards to your contact list in the past someone may of got it. Then they will forge your email address and mail it to everyone on the list and it looks like it came from you. This happens a lot. Finally they get tired of playing and move on to someone else's emails and bug them for a while.
      Anyhow, I received these emails for a few weeks and then they stopped. That was 6 months ago.
      I wish you luck in solving this situation.

  20. QUESTION:
    How do I respectfully get peoples emails for a newsletter?
    Well my company sells sports jerseys and at good prices btw.
    http://www.iwantajersey.com

    So we would like to get customers to sign up for our mailing list, or newsletter. But first off. I got some viewers on the website about 40 a day. How do I respectfully receive email addresses so I can send them out.

    • ANSWER:
      The U.S. Can-Spam act forbids sending emails to people you have no relationship, an on site newsletter opt-in form is an example of a proper say to add someone to an email list (establishing a business relationship).

      It's possible to find people with established email lists who will send out messages on your behalf.

      Many marketers use mail services that manage your opt-in list a way that maintains a good relationship with ISP postmasters, providing higher deliver-ability rates than your sending mail from your standard mail account. These services typically starting at /mo have other functions like autoresponder mail message sequences. Aweber is the best know service. There are a couple of free services that allow respected products to be marketed, mailChimp is one example you could use.

Do you know a solution for this problem? It really bugs me. I will appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you can, just add yourself and you won't get spam from yourself... you can still send emails... Of course, they are spoofing your address so everyone with email filtering (All the free services) now have you blocked for the spoofers "Spam"

  26. QUESTION:
    How do I filter out spam in my email?
    I get tons of spam in my email every day. I need a software to automatically connect to the POP3 server and delete the spam. Please recommend something that you have tried and know it works. And by the way I don't use Yahoo Mail or any free email, it is a paid email service that I can use with Outlook.

    • ANSWER:
      I use a frontend program called MAILWASHER (www.mailwasher.com)

      With this utility, you can see the mail that is coming to you and not only filter out the SPAM, but BOUNCE a message back to the original sender, telling them that your email address is bogus. SPAMMERS don't want to pay big broadband fees for addresses they consider not real. So they usually remove your address from their distribution lists.

      I THINK there is a free version online. If so, try it. You'll be surprised how much SPAM this thing cuts down after a few weeks.

      Your only other option is to just open a new email address and close your old one, notifying ONLY those you want to have the new address what it is. I've done that before also (and it definitely works).

      Good luck.

  30. QUESTION:
    My computer has collected something which is randomly sending mail out in my name.?
    My virus checker has not found or deleted this rogue piece of software. It usually invites recipients to click on a given web address for wonderful employment opportunities. It selects a few people from my Yahoo Mail list of contacts (2 e-mail addresses). A friend has suggested I contact Yahoo to find out what to do about this. Can anyone help. I am using the basic (free) AVG virus killer.

    • ANSWER:
      This is often caused by a malware infection on your computer. It's a fairly common problem - read Yahoo Help's page
      http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?y=PROD_MSNG&page=content&id=SLN2159&actp=lorax&locale=en_US

      You need to do all of the following and it should stop
      1 - change your email password
      2 - run full scans for both viruses and malware. A virus scan alone is not enough as it won't detect most malware. You also need to run an anti-malware program. If you don't have one, Malwarebytes is good and free to download. Then delete any infected files
      3 - after running the scans, delete your browsing history and cookies and empty your cache
      4 - restart your computer

      This should stop it

  31. QUESTION:
    No contacts in my yahoo address and still spam sent with my email address?
    I emptied my Yahoo email contact list. I changed my Yahoo email password.I scanned my computer for virus and malware: no problems reported. Spam is still being sent with my email address to recent correspondents. What should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      Deleting your account or Contacts List will NOT stop this spam - once the spammers have the address, they will continue to use it for a while. Spam sent to your Contacts will also stop in a while, but it is annoying.

      1. Check that the alternate e-mail address is still yours (Change it first!), and then change both your password AND your secret questions and answers. Make them unique and strong ones! (*** Changing your password also deletes the cookie which apparently inserts that sly trojan address grabber. ***) If you have a Yahoo! account, you can change your password at https://edit.yahoo.com/config/change_pw. If you can no longer access your account, you can get a new password at https://edit.yahoo.com/forgotroot/. If you still can t access your account after going through the Forgot Your Password process, you may contact the Customer Care team for assistance. Click Help, then Customer Care, then Live Chat - it make take a while, but a human answers! You will be asked several questions to verify that you are the owner of the account.
      If you used this password for other accounts, change them too - make every one different. Make the password longer than 8 characters, with mixed symbols.
      Usually, this is all you need to do, although mail will still be sent in the name of the old account for a while.

      2. *** If spam mail was sent to any of your contacts, apologize, and notify all your contacts NOT to open short e-mails, especially those with no subject, and definitely not to click any links. Warn them to scan for malware too, just in case. Set up an alternate 'alias' account to use instead. This allows you to use a different address for sending, but still keep all saved mails and contacts and the first address active too for incoming mail. Your friends can trust this new address. (There is a choice of address in an arrow in the From: box.)
      http://edit.yahoo..com/config/list_alias (alternate address)

      3. To be sure your computer is not infected, run both an anti-virus and spyware/malware scans, updated and separately - even more than one malware scan, or Trend Micro's Housecall for an online a-v scan. (in 'Safe Mode with Networking' is the only truly effective method - click F8 repeatedly when the screen first lights on boot-up, then arrow keys and Enter to navigate.) Re-boot into Safe Mode for each separate scan. These are the best free anti-malware programs.

  32. QUESTION:
    How can a make a mailing list for my newsletter?
    I Would like to make a newsletter for people who contact me through Craigslist.. I have the email addresses. How do I go about Compiling those addresses? Is there a program for this? Can I use outlook? Gmail? or is there a Commercial software that works easy? Maybe with more features that I may be interested in?

    • ANSWER:
      It may not actually be legal to mail to people who once made a advert inquiry, Can-Spam regulations say you can only market to those you have an established relationship with, professional email marketers take that to mean people have to Opt-in (subscribe) to a mailing list. Regular email accounts can get blocked by ISP postmasters when they see hundreds coming from the same source, the pro email marketers use mail management services many who require your subscribers to signup through their provided form so they know you didn't just scrape up the addresses, Aweber is the best known of these services, called Autoresponders because of their ability to automatically send out a scheduled mail sequence. A free one, Mailchimp is particular about what you are allowed to market, but I hear some have been able to upload existing lists to the service.

  33. QUESTION:
    How do you know if an email from Yahoo is legitimate if it contains suspicious content?
    I received an email from the Yahoo mail team that I requested to delete my account. It provides a link to cancel the request. I have NOT made this request. I'm worried that my account has been hacked and will be deleted..... OR that this is a phishing email waiting for me to click on the link so hell may be unleashed onto my computer. I don't know what to do and I can't find a way to contact yahoo directly.

    • ANSWER:
      100% scam.

      That is a scammer trying to hi-jack your email address to spam all your contacts and then use the account to spam hundreds/thousands of others.

      Yahoo and all email companies, all banks and all companies in the entire world will NEVER ask for your password, pin or date of birth. No Exceptions Ever.

      Ignore and delete that email and any others demanding such information.

      If you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of needing your password, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

      Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

      Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money, email address or identity to a scammer.

      If you google "yahoo email phishing scam", "email hijacked viagara porn spammer" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts of victims and near victims of this type of scam.

      In fact, if you check out the section here at Yahoo Answers entitled "Yahoo email, spam and bulk mail" you will find hundreds of questions from victims who have had their email address hi-jacked or spoofed by scammers sending out porn and viagra spam.

  34. QUESTION:
    How do I register my complete dissatisfaction with the new yahoo mail?
    The mail search absolutely stinks. There is no pagination; you cannot get beyond page 1 w/o scrolling. There is not a single feature in the new mail that's better than mail classic but there is a lot that's missing. If the goal is to drive users away from yahoo mail, yahoo managers have succeeded admirably. If the goal is to force us to pay for an upgrade, I'm not sure it will work -- I am now searching for another email server. But I do want to thank yahoo for 15 great years of free email service. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      It is no longer possible to set a fixed number of email messages to display per page, as Yahoo! Mail now allows you to scroll through all messages in a folder with infinite scroll--as you scroll down a folder's message list, more messages in that list load automatically.

      Yahoo is moving everyone using Yahoo Classic to the new Yahoo Mail. Here's an overview of the new Yahoo mail - http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN8821&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1371350861871&locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML

      You can switch back to Yahoo Classic by using this link - http://mrd.mail.yahoo.com/switchclassic You will need to bookmark this link and use it every time you want to use Yahoo Mail Classic.

      It should work until July 9, 2013. At that time you will be required to update from Yahoo Classic to the new Yahoo Mail in order to access your email.

      This link doesn't appear to work for everyone, especially those running Windows XP. Try these basic troubleshoting steps if the link doesn't work - http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en_US&y=PROD_MAIL_ML&page=content&id=SLN3223

      Here's the information on what you're asking about:

      Tips on How to Identify a Scam or Fraud

      If the email, phone call, prize or lottery notification has any of the following elements, we strongly suggest it is probably a fraud and you do not respond to it. Below are some general tips to recognize scams:

      -The name of the company is listed on this website somewhere as a scam.
      -The email matches one of the definitions or formats on this website.
      -The organization has no website and can not be located in Google.
      -The email or requestor asks for bank account information, credit card numbers, driver's license numbers, passport numbers, your mother's maiden name or other personal information.
      -The email or caller advises that you have won a prize - but you did not enter any competition run by the prize promoters.
      -The email claims you won a lottery (we know of NO legal lottery that notifies winners by email)
      -The mail may be personally addressed to you but it has been posted using bulk mail - thousands of others around the world may have received the exact same notification. Especially true if you find an exact or similar email posted on this website.
      -The return address is a yahoo, hotmail, excite.com or other free email accounts. Legitimate companies can afford the roughly 0 per year that it costs to acquire and maintain a domain and related company email account.
      -The literature contains a lot of hype and exaggerations, but few specific details about costs, your obligations, how it works, etc.
      -The prize promoters ask for a fee (for administration, "processing", taxes, etc.) to be paid in advance. A legitimate lottery simply deducts that from the winnings!
      -The scheme offers bait prizes that, if they are real, are often substandard, over-priced, or falsely represented. Or, as part of the prize you can purchase "exclusive items" which may also be over-priced or substandard.
      -To get your prize might require travel overseas at your own cost (and personal risk) to receive it.

      Now that you have the information, spam that "bogus" lottery message straight into oblivion-without delay!!!

    How many contacts can I add to one list? I think there is a limit, isn't it?
    I made a yahoo mail list with some of my contacts in order to send an e-mail at the same time to all that contact I put in the list. But the e-amil couldn't be sent and the message I received was that I had too many contact on that list. So, what is the limit? Thank U in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      I think you can only email 100 people at a time and a 500 limit total per day. Yahoo makes these limitations to try and stop the amount of spam.

      I know that is the limit via SMTP but am not sure how that applies to free Yahoo Mail, or what SMTP is exactly.

    How do i create a windows email account?
    I'm trying to send emails via craigs list but its asking for a windows email account. I dont know what the POP is or the stmp is. Could someone help me create one? I do have a gmail account, could i use that?

    • ANSWER:
      Many web sites use an HTML command called MAILTO:. It is an easy way to handle email since they do not have to design forms and handle the mail themselves. The command transfers to the "default" email program which is normally Outlook Express or Windows Mail on a PC.

      You have 3 options. 1. Set up an email account in Outlook Express, Windows Mail, or another email program. 2. Somehow alter the default to go to Yahoo mail on the web. 3. Just copy the address and create an email manually.

      -----
      SET UP ACCOUNT

      In order to use a separate email program, such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, or Thunderbird, with Yahoo Mail you need POP3. It is also needed when using any program or right clicking on a file to directly send email. It is free in the UK, AU, and NZ but in the US you must pay for Yahoo Mail Plus. It is also required when you try to transfer the mail using smtp or pop3 to another online email. When you do you can set the servers as follows:
      Incoming (pop3)
      US - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com SSL 995
      UK - pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk SSL 995
      AU and NZ - pop.mail.yahoo.com.au SSL 995
      Outgoing (smtp)
      US - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com 465 TLS
      UK - smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk SSL 465 TLS
      AU and NZ - smtp.mail.yahoo.com.au SSL 465 TLS

      NOTE: The same servers are used for ymail and rocketmail. Use the entire email address as the Yahoo ID.

      You can also look at the program Ypops. I have no recommendation for or against.

      -----
      CHANGE DEFAULT

      Web sites use the default email program. That is normally Outlook Express or Windows Mail. You can change it to the Yahoo mail web site.

      For Firefox 3 (There is no option for FF 2.)...

      Go to Yahoo Mail and select "options". Then select "Set Y! Mail as default webmail".
      This will only work for mailto links within Firefox. I know of no way to access it from outside of Firefox.

      It can also be done by going to tools > options > applications. Scroll down to MAILTO and select Yahoo Mail from the dropdown menu.

      For Internet Explorer

      You must first download Yahoo! Toolbar from http://toolbar.yahoo.com and install it. During installation you will be asked if you want to make yahoo mail your default email.

    Can i put yahoo emails on to a memory stick?
    I need to transfer all my email folder to a new account because of constant email junk mail and viruses. To save time and security i want to put all the yahoo emails on to a memory stick.

    • ANSWER:
      Since Yahoo mail is web mail (not stored on your computer), you will need to download it first. You need to choose a mail account that downloads directly to your computer. Since most of these will only download your Inbox, do it first, empty it, and then transfer the folders one by one to the Inbox to download them. Set up folders or labels for them too.

      1. If you sign up for a Yahoo Plus account (~/yr) Yahoo can download and archive all mail on your computer.
      http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/mailplus/pop/
      2. You can also install a free program like YPOPS or FreePOPS to download to another mail service that is downloaded to your computer, such as Gmail, OE, Outlook ...)
      3. You can also set your mail account to a country where POP access is free, such as the UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand or Asia. Go to Options > Account information (left side) > member information > preferred content > edit (a drop-down list appears) general preferences > language/country. Click 'Finished'. This method allows you to keep all the mail sorted in their original folders. NOTE: This procedure was for Yahoo Classic Mail, so some of the procedures may be different in other versions of Mail.

      This site helps find the POP and SMTP settings and ports for a variety of accounts. Otherwise, contact your Internet Provider for the settings.

    • ANSWER:
      As with most things, there are many ways of doing this.

      If your mailing list is going to be small (under 50 people), you could simply Bcc: everyone from your email client such as Thunderbird or Outlook. You can also make "distribution lists" in these programs that do the same thing. The downside of this is that you have to add and remove the addresses manually.

      For larger lists, or more professionalism where the users click links to opt in and get confirmation emails automatically, you need specialist mailing lists.

    I supposedly received an email from Yahoo asking to verify my account. I have had the account for over a year and there should be no reason to verify it. The address came up **YAHOO**. Do they have an email address to send it to so they can check it out if it's not them?

    • ANSWER:
      100% scam.

      That is a scammer trying to hi-jack your email address to spam all your contacts and then use the account to spam hundreds/thousands of others.

      Yahoo and all email companies, all banks and all companies in the entire world will NEVER ask for your password, pin or date of birth. No Exceptions Ever.

      Ignore and delete that email and any others demanding such information.

      If you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of needing your password, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

      Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

      Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money, email address or identity to a scammer.

      If you google "yahoo email phishing scam", "email hijacked viagara porn spammer" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts of victims and near victims of this type of scam.

      In fact, if you check out the section here at Yahoo Answers entitled "Yahoo email, spam and bulk mail" you will find hundreds of questions from victims who have had their email address hi-jacked or spoofed by scammers sending out porn and viagara spam.

  45. QUESTION:
    How to bcc an email to more than 100?
    I have an email list for my restaurant with more than 300 people, and growing daily. I have them split into groups of 100 and have to send separate emails. Is there a way to combine into one email group and avoid the 100 bcc max?

    • ANSWER:
      The free Yahoo mail was not designed for businesses and even putting 100 addresses sometimes causes a problem. You may have to get an address at a paid site that has a high limit.

      There may also be a design limit for the number of addresses. Some companies just use a program that actually sends out individual emails to each person from a central list.

      Another option is to use the list feature of Yahoo contacts. You create a named list with up to 100 addresses and just use the name when sending mail. You can then just send 4 emails with a single group name in each. Note that Yahoo may still have a total daily limit to cut down on spam.

    How do i get free samples from makeup companies?
    I've herd of people receiving free samples but haven't figured out how yet. I go through makeup like socks so i get board with my makeup fast therefore i want some samples.

    • ANSWER:
      if you want free stuff, I really really like http://www.sampleaday.com for it. They sort through and find the legit samples so you don't have to. They are great because they are updated daily and all of their offers are "catch free", that means no long surveys, no pay offers. They also have a e-mailing list where they send you the free samples listed on their site. I use that so I get them in my email which comes daily. It isn't required though to get the freebies. Sometimes their descriptions are pretty funny too! If you are looking for a specific type of free sample, there is a categories list and a search bar right above categories so that you can do searches.

      You can check out their free sample forum too:

  47. QUESTION:
    Can anyone tell me of a free email provider that has a SMTP server?
    Verizon Broadband has informed me that they are doing away with their SMTP service since so many other email providers have it. Yet I'm not even sure I know what I'm looking for here. I want to be able to send and recieve emails thru my Windows Mail (similar to OutLook Express). Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      That's one more thing on my list of "Why I'll never again even try Verizon". I've tried them twice and, for a few reasons each time, canceled on the first day the service was running (okay, crawling one of those two times). My provider provides email service, always has, and always will. (Most cable companies will.)

      Here are 3 free providers (or, according to them, one provider and a couple of also-rans) - http://www.iopus.com/guides/bestpopsmtp.htm

    • ANSWER:
      you can do upto 2000 for free using mailchimp...i'm guessing you could probably set up 5 mailchimp accounts and send 5 times.

  49. QUESTION:
    Why are my saved emails in my folders being deleated? This is irritating as I need those for business?
    I am tired of my saved emails in folders being deleated by yahoo. this is like building up a customer list and then someone stealing it or burning it. Does this happen with all free email accounts, Gmail, Hotmail etc. Do you have to pay for extra storage space? I had a hotmail account and this did not happen. I think I will drop yahoo because of this. very irritating.

    Whats the easiest way to make money online?
    Whats the easiest way to make (not very big but just some money) money online? No complicated things, just easy 5 year old can do it things?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, the only website I know for sure that is legit is SwagBucks. They have many users and you'll never find anyone complaining for any scam. All you need to provide is your e-mail address and like your name. You basically win these "swag bucks" for searching and with those, you can redeem prizes they have there. In that case, you provide the home address to receive it. If you are not comfortable with that, you can buy e-gift cards and no home address is needed. It takes a while to get enough points (otherwise they'd be out of business) but it's not hard and it's just for fun. (for me anyway) Sign up here if you are interested. http://swagbucks.com/?cmd=sb-register&rb...

Include how you have your home office set up and what equipment you already have in order for you to perform your job.

    Almost every internet page contains adverts on the side talking about how easy it is to make money online. I am in need of quick cash, but not too sure if I should believe all the hype. Does anyone have genuine advise for me to follow?

    • ANSWER:
      You have many options, but beware odf all the scamsters out there. Affiliate marketing where you market products on behalf of the owner and they pay you a commission, is worth considering.

      An even better option is to purchase a downloadable product and sell it for 100% profit, and people pay you directly into your Paypal account. This is what I am doing right now, with a very small initial outlay, and yet I am already in profit. I suggest that you seriously consider doing something similar by purchasing a turnkey, handsfree website, already populated with a product, payment processor etc. Just check out this site, which has all the info;

    • ANSWER:
      Mizz,

      You did ask the question that is sure to get a ton of those "try my business answers"...

      The simple truth is this. Making money online isn't all that hard once you know how. Now I know that sounds kind of stupid because once you know how do anything, it's not hard anymore but learning how to do something requires a bit of effort.

      It's the willingness to learn and put in that effort that makes the difference between a little and a lot of money in the online world.

      Is it worth the effort? Well, if you want to earn your income and start working at something that you will never have to retire from... it is...

      I joined a mentor organization and started to learn how the system worked... It made all the difference in the world for me. I did start making money within a week,, or two,, sorry it's been a while back...BUT!!!... don't expect to make 10 grand in your first week... There is a little bit more of a learning curve that that...

      Hope this helps a bit... Feel free to contact me if I can help.

    I am looking for ways to make money online without the hassle, and the possiblity of being scammed. I heard and saw bogus websites, those that ask for your credit card number and I'm not into all that. So, does anyone know of good legit ways to make money online pretty fast?

    • ANSWER:
      http://goodsurveysites.com Its what I do and it's worked out pretty well. What you have to do is complete surveys and offers for companies that want the public's opinion. No payment from you is ever required, not to sign up, not EVER.

      The sites don't get paid directly from you, but when you complete an offer or survey, they also get paid a small portion of what you earned yourself. For example, if you complete a survey about computers let's say, you would earn maybe and the web site itself would recieve [FAQ-ANSWER].50 from the company also for getting you to complete the survey. These surveys take little time at all, most taking up less than even 1 or 2 minutes of your time.

      They don t need any information other than your name, email address and your home address. Yup, that is all. No credit card information, no banking information, nothing like that. All they require is your name and address so that your cheque can be sent to your home every month.

      Personally I have been a member of these websites, along with thousands of other satisfied users, for approximately 1.5 years now and have earned well over 00 by working in my spare time. This web site has been great to me, also the members and administrator are very friendly, and are always there to help you with a question or problem you may be having. I give you my word that they pay.

    • ANSWER:
      Be careful on companies advertising online that they can do this for you. Often times you end up paying a fee, you are given some basic training info then you are off on your own to get your own customers. I would check into a community college, learn a skill like medical billing then market yourself directly to doctors and medical groups. Also, find somebody on line maybe through a forum and ask them how they got started. good luck

    • ANSWER:
      I've visited and participated in various sites where people can make money and was most annoyed by how many of them used "employees" as spam mules. For example, CashCrate.com requires its people to pass out their email addresses like they're candy, and though people might make a couple of dollars here and there for their efforts, no one compensates them for the amount of spam their email (or alternately managed email) address receives.

      If you'd like to read a list of options which includes spam-free sites like eLance, DeviantArt, Zenfolio, eHow, eBay, and so many others, please click on the link below.

    How to make good money online?
    Hello, I need a way to make a decent amount of money online. It has to be easy and not really boring (preferably not doing surveys, unless it pays well). Does anyone know of somewhere that I could maybe get paid to review things like computer software? thankyou soo much!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      There are GPT sites they pay you to write reviews, but they pay very little. I really don't think there are many legit ways to earn "good" money online, only to earn just extra money. Surveys are probably the only way to go.

  38. QUESTION:
    What is the easiest way to make money online?
    So I've been looking for a way to make money online for some time now. Literally searching google for ages. There is just so much stuff on the topic lol. Like are surveys good? Should I try the whole affiliate thing and promote a virtual product? To be honest I just want to find something where I can make decent money pretty fast.. So anyone know of anything like that? haha probably not but worth a shot lol! :P

    • ANSWER:
      You are just asking for spam by posting a question like that.

      Truthfully, there is no easy way to make money. Surveys are a waste of time for what they pay... when they pay.

      Try going to a trade show, or pickup some wholesale items as cheap as possible then sell them on eBay. That is all you can do without starting your own business.

  39. QUESTION:
    How can I make free money online?
    I was recently laid off from my job, and it's nearly impossible to get another job because of my handicap. Is there an easy way to get money online that isn't a scam, and I don't need to pay for?

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      As others here have stated, getting paid for taking surveys online is usually a scam or to put it simple an enormous waste of time. Trust me, I've been down that road. From sites like for example mysurvey.com, other blog sites, cashcrate, swagbucks, winster and a whole load of others I signed up for that I cant even remember. Not saying they're ALL scams, but realistically they were wastes of time to me.

      Here's the best way I have found to earn money online. It s EASY, FREE, LEGIT, & SAFE.

      http://www.hits4pay.com/members/index.cgi?japsin13

      Click on the above url and sign up with hits 4 pay. This is a site where you get paid for reading e-mails. But wait, you're probably thinking what's the catch??? To be completely honest, there is really no catch, except reading and going through several e-mails. HOWEVER, you will never have to subscribe or use your credit card information. Just sign up using your real information and try to refer others to make more money. No spam. No viruses. & You only need to stay on the e-mail page for 60 seconds. You get credited with actual money and not "points" like some other sites. You automatically receive .00 for just signing up... but you can only redeem a paycheck when you reach .00.

      I am a freshman in college and I have personally gone through so many sites that have proven to be scams or just a plain waste of my time. On this site I only spend about 5 minutes a day on reading e-mails and average - month in PAID CHECKS. =)

      This is a reputable site and I actually know many people (including myself) who were paid. No scam & no credit card number/ purchases necessary. Sorry for the long write up but trust me it's worth it. Hope that helps =)

      PS: When other people tell you to visit their blogs, it's not always because they really want to help you. They get more money when more people visit their site. Just a head's up. Be careful because I've been spammed in the past and now I'm steering safe.

  40. QUESTION:
    How do i make money online and quick an Easy?
    Hi, I'm Trying to make money online but don't really no How to I've been on a couple of sites and all were useless and most were American. I Don't want to do surveys so i was Seeing if Anybody Has any ideas or suggestions??
    Thanks x

    • ANSWER:
      Why not start up a website or a blog and place google ad's on it.
      This is the start of joining up with affiliate programs and making money threw blogging.
      As long as you can write well and have the time this could be an option.
      The other way would be to write articles for people and I have even seen people being paid to post comments etc.

    What is the best and easiest way to make money online, that is NOT a scam, I was thinking of Maverick, ideas?
    I wanna make money online I'm looking at Maverick money makers as it looks like a good way to generate income, you only pay 97 dollars? is that true? I'm from Ireland does that matter? What exactly do you do with Maverick? Is it only advice or is it a thing that makes money for you? I have no idea! :S Could I have some ideas please?:D

    • ANSWER:
      ^^ Yeah that. I agree with Brutus.

      They are taking your money and they are taking your information and almost certainly selling it to a third party, hence making even more money off you. (See, for example, cashcrate's TOS where it expressly states that your info goes to a third party...and you're not allowed to know who that is...setting you up for ID theft. I mean your identity could literally be going anywhere.)

      My advise is very dry and boring. Use a skill you already have, or if you don't have one, develop one, and seek freelance projects based on that skill from craigslist.org or elance.com. Work hard. Expect average pay for the work you do, like everyone else gets. That way you won't be disappointed, you may make a little bit of money, and you won't have had your or your identity taken from you.

      Good luck and I hope things get better for you.

    How to get easy money online?
    I'm 14 years old, and live in the UK.

    I am trying to earn money online by clicking adverts or filling out surveys, but most of them don't work or require you to be in the US. Please do not give me ones that require credit card details because I do not have one.

    I need to save up 20 or so to buy my mum an Ipod since she really deserves one, she's been in a lot of stress recently.

    • ANSWER:
      There's one good GPT website I use that also works for the UK. It's called Cashle. They pay you for doing offers and surveys and I find it to be much easier than CashCrate or any other site out there. If you put effort into it, you can get the iPod in about a week or less.

    • ANSWER:
      You can only obtain legitimate work from home positions from brick and mortar companies.

Include how you have your home office set up and what equipment you already have in order for you to perform your job.

    How to earn money online through e books without any first investment?
    Hi. I need to know the various ways through which i can make money online. I wrote some stories and essays as e books. Is there any website to which i can give it and get money credited in my paypal account. Please i don't want any ptc or survey refferal links...

    • ANSWER:
      my favourite affiliate programs are in the online gambling niche. the best thing about this niche is that once you sign someone up, say to a poker site, they will make their initial deposit (you get paid) and when they keep on playing you continue to get a percentage cut- long term passive income for doing absolutely nothing!

      you can get paid up to 0 bucks per signup! and then up to 50% share of the revenue they generate. imagine that- if you only signed up 1 a day you would make over ,000 a month! and that doesnt even include your revenue share.

      why would you bother selling clickbank products which only pay you once? whats worse is you also have to deal with chargebacks- so often your hard work goes to waste because the customer didnt like the product.

      what i love about online gambling is that its such a big industry and its only growing. also, the market is international so you arent restricted to just your home country.

      many sites have stacks of promotions and banners for you to put on your site. this makes jazzing up your blog or website soooo easy. theres no need to do any ad copy writing and there are java script banners to ge the atention of your readers.

      these are my favourite (and most profitable) gambling affiliate programs. all of them are free to signup as a webmaster/affiliate.

      these sites offer you pretty much instantaneous registration so you could be making money in minutes- literally. you just need to get traffic and get people to sign up.

      if you already have a blog then you already have traffic. a free way of getting more traffic is to add links to your blogs on facebook to get more people seeing your ads.

      the top affiliates make over million a year. i am not making that much but you dont need a million a year to be happy ;) at least i don't anyway.

      so here are my top 3, i suggest you signup right now.

      1) sportsbetting, horse racing, poker, casinos and ultimate fighting (great moneymaker!)

      up to 35% revenue commission

      go to:
      http://tinyurl.com/22m6ata and click on the "join now" button in the middle of the screen.

      2) poker

      up to 0 per player and 35% revenue share

      go to:
      http://tinyurl.com/25ztskb and click on the "affiliates" button in the top right

      3) bingo

      per signup, 50% commission- it really surprised me how many people love to play bingo. i thought it was just for old people.

      go to :
      http://tinyurl.com/2cwr79o you can also win an ipad by signing up.

      sorry its such a long answer but i hope this gives you some ideas and helps you make some $$$

  47. QUESTION:
    How can I make money online?
    Hello. I am a 13 year old boy. Currently, I cannot get a job because the required age is 14. I would like to know how I could make some money online. I need an EASY way because I can't waste so much time for it to not work in the end.

    • ANSWER:
      You're only 13. But, you could start LEARNING right now so maybe you'll have an edge over your peers in the future.

      You only being 13 does disqualify you. But it doesn't hurt for you to starting learning.

      Just so you know, 'paid survey' websites are a total waste of time. When they do pay out its hardly anything considering how much time you put into it.

      A lot of people have misconceptions about making money online.

      Its not easy, it is real, there usually aren't 'online jobs' exactly (as in getting hired by a company) but rather - freelancing and other ways of marketing.

      - Don't take my word for it, you'll find out over time. -

      *** Don't pay to sign up for websites which claim you will make money. Those are the scams. ***

      If you're freelancing you need skills with computers or something if you want to keep it all online. Web design would be a good example of this. Freelancer.com is a good site to find companies looking to help with their projects.

      Affiliate Marketing. That is when a company pays you to advertise their product. They pay a commission for each successful sale that you help them make.

    How can i make money online without any strings attached?

    • ANSWER:
      There are no fees or costs to start writing content articles for sites like eHow and Hub Pages.

      You are paid based on the ad revenue generated by your articles.

      I earn over 0 per month from my collection of simple how-to articles on eHow.

      There are no scams and I get nothing for referring you ... best of luck!

  49. QUESTION:
    How can I make money online without wasting a lot of my own money in the process?
    Just like the titles says I want to know how I can make money online without wasting my own in the process. I'm open to any ideas as long as its not shady and completely legal.

    • ANSWER:
      There are a few cardinal rules for looking for ligitimate online jobs:

      1) If they asks for any type of fees, RUN FAR AWAY!
      2) You will most likely not find a plain ol' data entry job.
      3) Work at home jobs are not any easier than regular jobs you do outside the home, anything promising lots of money for doing nothing is a scam or a bad business opportunity.
      4) Do not "process payments" for anyone, you could end up in the big house.
      5) Is the job they are offering going to "change your life", I doubt it. I go to church for that kind of stuff.
      6) Legitimate companies will not advertise for jobs in banners or spam emails.

      As you can probably tell I've seen just about every bad job offering out there and I get really irritated with all the promises and such. And I hate to see good people throw away their money.

      With all that being said, I can tell you that there are legitimate jobs out there. It's just a matter of finding them.

  50. QUESTION:
    What are some easy ways to make money online?
    Ok, so my mom told me i needed to get a job. What are some good ways to sell things online? Like, what can i make at my house then sell online? Or is there any other ways to make money online.

    • ANSWER:
      Most people who work at home and are successful are doing one of two things - getting paid a commission on everyone they

      convince to join the program (also known as MLM or pyramid plans.)..,... OR they have their own business. Your own business

      is something you create yourself, not find on the internet. You create it based on your skills, your passions not on what
