Affiliate marketing has been in the Internet industry for quite sometime now and it is among the most popular tools used by many online entrepreneurs today. It is a great option for those who want to put up an online business quickly and cheaply. However, there is still a large number of the population who knows a little or even nothing about it. And most of the people who have just discovered this business usually assume that they can easily make big bucks out of it. Well, they’re definitely wrong.

To be successful in affiliate marketing business is not an easy task and it will never happen overnight. It’s just like an ongoing assignment where you need to find out and try various advertising strategies and tactics. This may even require you to sign-up with numerous affiliate programs just to determine which merchants performs well.

Another misconception that affiliates have ‘bout this kind of business is that they expect to gain more if they place about 20 affiliated banners on just one niche. Well it will not really work the way you think it would because once your site is flooded with too many banners, it will look like a link farm and visitors won’t be interested and won’t even bother clicking on any of those banners. So if you really want to promote several affiliate programs in your website, make sure that they jive with the theme and topic of the rest of the content on your niche. Bear in mind that three or four affiliated links in your site are enough, depending on the size of the web page.

There are also some who think that if they add affiliate materials to their site, they can receive sales right away. Maybe they just don’t know that affiliate marketing is all about advertising. If there’s no traffic coming to your site, how can you expect to get any sales? Remember that the more you advertise your affiliate link or the site where the affiliate links are placed, the more clickthru’s these links are likely to receive.

If you want to be involved or you’ve already joined an affiliate program, but you have the above misconceptions regarding affiliate marketing, then, you might need a mentor to help you figure out where to start and what to do in order to succeed.

In the dictionary, the word mentor is defined as a wise and trusted teacher or counselor. Usually, these persons are experts in the field they are into. They can give expert advice and guidance as well as supervision to another person. So when we say affiliate marketing mentors, they are experienced counselors that have made affiliate marketing their specialty. Affiliate marketing mentors can be those persons that have already been successful in affiliate marketing and are always willing to share their experienced-based knowledge from the viewpoint of both the affiliates and the web merchants. And that’s the reason why we come up with this page. It is aimed to give you the stuffs that affiliate mentors should possess and follow and why do they need these things.

Of course, it is good for an affiliate marketing mentor to know and apply some theories and generalities regarding your business but there’s nothing more helpful and effective than telling the client what works today and what are the things that could probably work in the future and if the trend changes. As a mentor, you should be one of the sources of knowledge for your client and the first one to teach them on how to generate more affiliate income. You too, need to be knowledgeable and equipped with the keys to success for affiliate marketers as well as for merchants. And you should guide your clients as they try to do the things that can help boost their profit because once they do well in that business, it can be counted as one of your great achievements. This also makes you a successful mentor.

There are some articles on affiliate marketing that says, in order to be triumphant in affiliate marketing business, you need to encompass and develop these traits: persistence, patience and thirst for knowledge. And as a mentor, it is your job to help your clients take in these traits within themselves. Once they’ve already developed the abovementioned character, it’ll be very easy for you to explain to them that attaining success in affiliate marketing requires sweat, blood and of course, hefty time commitment. These traits will also teach them not to give up.

Moreover, before you train your client to be proficient in search engine optimization, link exchanges, email marketing, newsletter marketing, reciprocal exchanges and advertising in forums, you should first become expert on these fields. They will surely find it hard to learn these things alone and without supervision from the one who knows best. So make sure that you are knowledgeable on these things before you accept any invitation to be a mentor. Yes, being a mentor is way harder than succeeding in affiliate marketing but this task is very rewarding especially if your client become victorious. The failure of your client is your failure too so you must do your very best to be able to bring your client on the road to success. Again, it is never an easy task and there’s nothing you can do about it. After all, that’s what affiliate marketing mentors are for.

Most web hosting companies will provide customers with web hosting plans that include many services. Some of the services that will be offered at the beginning will be totally separate from those included in the plans these companies previously presented because the small business owner might need fewer services than an established retailer will. The web hosting services selected from the first day will typically change over the years as the new business owner develops a larger client base.

The cost for establishing web hosting services will be low at first because the business owner will only be concerned with establishing an online existence. The business presence that is established through these types of services will be minimal at best because the business owner will be more concerned on the use of business monies to creating a business inventory and obtaining an online web address. The online address can be used to market the site to search engines throughout the internet.

Customers will find the business website through other web hosting services that are chosen and some business owners prefer to use their own creative methods to market the new company to the public. A small business owner might take advantages of these services that provide marketing campaigns once or twice a month, or more if the small business owner can afford additional charges. The small business owner should consider every web hosting service that is available to site owners free of charge every time they employ self-marketing methods.

Creating an attractive and impressive online presence is possible with the web hosting services that are offered free of charge. Many companies will offer site builder programs that customers can use to personalize the website and give them the opportunity to build the business structure from scratch. The web hosting site builder programs will allow business owners to select colors and the type of template to use to provide a structured appearance that is also professional.

A small business owner will gain great business experience by building a website from scratch. Some of the web hosting services that are free will make business owners think of services that were never considered before. The little touches that are added to the home page will make the business seem like it is a well establish business organization. Customers can view counters and sign guest books to give an opinion on how the business website looks and what changes the customer would like to see in the very near future.

Some of the web hosting services will help small business owners organize the contents of the website. The database storage services will allow the business owner to create a customer database that will eventually provide him with an effective information that can be included in an email marketing program. These little services might cost a bit more per month but considering the cost of mailing postcards to everyone in the database, the email marketing charges will seem very reasonable to business owners that are just getting started.

You look at your watch, realizing that you are almost late for work. Without meaning to, you drive through a red stoplight. A quick gasp, turning your head left and right, you check to see if anyone noticed.

Just as suddenly, the red and blue flashing lights are reflected in your rear-view mirror. “Oh no”, you sigh; as you realize the policeman that is pulling you over was an observer to what you had just done. You hope that he lefts you off with a warning so that you can still make it to work on time.

What you don’t realize is that you have been a victim of criminal identity theft and someone has stolen your identity. Slowly, the officer approaches the window of your vehicle. He politely asks for your driver’s license, inquires as to whether you know what he stopped you and then returns to his own vehicle.

All the while you silently pray for a traffic warning rather than a violation. As he runs your driver’s license through his dispatch support, a warrant for a crime that you know nothing about comes up. As you wait, you realize another police car has pulled up behind the original officer.

Together they approach your car. The original officer asks you to please vacate the vehicle and to place your hands on the hood of the vehicle. Once you have done so, he takes your hands, puts them behind your back and handcuffs you. All the while, the second officer reading you your rights and explaining that your vehicle will need to be picked up or the local towing company will tow it. You have no idea what is going on, when you try to explain, the officer dismisses your argument and takes you to his vehicle and off to jail.

How Can Criminal Identity Theft Affect You

This scenario while seemingly unreal is in fact a daily occurrence in many cities across America. Today, more than any other time in history, criminals are providing detailed personal history that is not their own in order to escape justice.

In some cases, the imposter will be arrested and booked under the false name without the true person ever knowing that anything had been done in their name. For the criminal identity theft victim, this can lead to denied employment and credit due to a criminal history.

In addition, if the imposter chooses not to attend the required legal court appearances, after having signed the original criminal or traffic ticket, the judge can enter a bench warrant for the suspect. The criminal identity theft victim, rather than the imposter, is then entered into a warrant system and is soon sought after by the local and state police.

As A Criminal Identity Theft Victim, It Is Up To You To Clean Up The Mess

Unfortunately for the criminal identity theft victim, the responsibility of clearing one’s name is the responsibility of the victim. The criminal identity theft victim must work promptly to clear their name, to prevent further problems in the future. This is not always an easy task but it is an immediate need if you want to preserve your personal history and integrity. If you have been a victim of criminal identity theft, There are many agencies online and in the telephone directly that can assist you with resolving this matter.

Designing a web site can be pretty easy with the many free web designing templates that are easily available over the internet. However you should remember that a web design template should only be used as a foundation around which you should custom-design your web site to suit your special requirements.

Just getting a web site up and running is only half the battle. Your web site should be designed taking certain factors into consideration. A bad web design choice can potentially cripple your website. So take a look at a few important factors to keep in mind when designing our web site.

Right on top of your list is your target audience. Every website has a different target audience and should be designed accordingly. Content is as crucial as color, graphics, typography and layout of the web site.

Clear communication is a must when designing a web site. After all the purpose of the web page is to deliver a precise message to the audience so communication is key. Think of the long-term implications of your web design. A web page filled with flashy animations might attract a few browsers in the beginning, but could soon fizzle out as clients face problems with poor site usability, reduced speed of loading pages and lack of content.

Your web site should be interesting and fact filled, easy to navigate and good enough to come back to again and again. Make your web site users feel invited and comfortable when navigating your site and don’t ever compromise usability for design. A web site with dazzling designs but poor navigation is sure to irk your audience and leave them frustrated.

Meticulous attention to detail reflects your professionalism. Don’t clutter your web page with all sorts of stuff but maintain a harmonious balance of content, graphics, typography, colors and content labeling. Good typography and a right combination of colors unobtrusively enhances your website with high caliber craftsmanship.

What’s The Point In A Good Domain Name? http://cloopimart.com/whats-the-point-in-a-good-domain-name/ Thu, 23 Nov 2017 15:11:00 +0000 http://cloopimart.com/?p=217 So what is a domain name?

So what is a domain name?

Well it is your unique internet identity and choosing the right one is as important as the content of your website. If you have a business online then your domain name is your own brand. There can never be two companies with the same domain name which makes this unique. A domain name is the unique address used to identify your site. Computers use IP (internet protocol) addresses which are a series of numbers used to identify each other. Domain names were developed so that easily remembered names could be used to identify the page instead of the number. If you put a correct IP number into a browser it would bring up the site as would putting the domain name in.

What is the best domain name?

Well the best domain name is one that is easy to remember and stands out. You want your domain name to stand out from the crowd and give you a decisive edge over your competitors. If your business is selling china flowers then chinaflowers.com or co.uk would be ideal, it describes the site well and people know they have come to the right site. Also using the companies’ name as your domain name is great if you can get it. Using unique text that describes your website is a good idea. Using branding and keywords in the domain name can be tricky to accomplish but if you could use the words it would give you a head start. Most people believe .com names are the best but other people believe that it your site ends in .com then it’s an American site. If your site ends in co.uk people believe that the site comes from the UK. Neither of these statements is true as anyone can register either a .com or .net domain from anywhere in the world. Because most domain names are snapped up quick then trying to get a domain name which is the name of your business is the best way to go even if you cannot get a .com domain.

Why should you re-register?

Well if you don’t remember to re-register your domain, someone else could come along and register it themselves. Few people realize the importance of having their domain name and keeping it. So many people have a domain name and then forget to re-register or don’t like the cost of re-registering so loose it. Or often people believe it they don’t bother to re-register and wait a few weeks they can then register it again using a domain registration company where the prices in very little in comparison to re-registering the site before the domain expired. The trouble with doing that is that the domain could be snapped up by somebody else and you will have lost your unique online identity. So that is the chance you take. If you have a good online business and your website is generating a lot of new business and customers then it would be really stupid to let your domain go on the hope that you could save some money and register it again in a few weeks. The amount of money and business you could have lost in taking that chance would be better spent on re-registering the site in the first place.

An extranet is an extension of your company’s internal network that allows outside users to provide and access information in a secure environment.

Like an intranet, it is web browser based, making information available on any computer without any special equipment. However, an extranet does require extensive security and may need special software to provide user authentication and to encrypt data.

Extranets are used to extend your business applications to
suppliers, clients, vendors, customers or other businesses. They make sharing data simpler and more cost effective. Extranets have even allowed companies to save money from an unexpected source — allowing employees to telecommute. As a result, a company can save on the cost of maintaining on-premises offices and equipment for these employees.

Some uses of extranets include:

Supporting day-to-day collaboration by service companies who need to share and organize documents with their clients

– Exchanging billing invoices and payments through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
– Sharing online catalogs with suppliers,
vendors and customers to eliminate printing costs
– Entering into joint ventures with other businesses
– Collaborating with other companies to develop training materials
– Providing online services to customers

One of the best known extranets in the word is the UPS package tracking system. Most people don’t realize that they are using an extranet to track their packages, but they are. The customer, whether business or individual, logs in to the UPS network over
the internet to see where their package is and when it will be delivered.

Like intranets, large companies have been using extranets for years. The need for special software, firewalls, and trained personnel put them beyond the means of smaller businesses. However, like intranets, extranets can be purchased from application service providers who will host and maintain the extranet software and “rent” access at a cost substantially lower than implementing and maintaining an internal system.

To understand expired domains, and their significance, an understanding of the difference between a domain and a website is required.

A good analogy is to liken a domain to a company telephone number, and a website to a company office. People can use a telephone to enter a company telephone number to call up the company and place orders, in the same way that they can use an internet browser to enter a domain to look at the company website and place orders.

With the telephone, the company pays the telephone company. If they don’t pay then their telephone gets cut off, and after a while their phone number gets reassigned.

This is similar to domain names. A company will pay to register a domain for a specific period of time – normally 1 or 2 years. The company can then pay again to renew the registration for another set period. If the company stops paying, then the domain expires and becomes available to be registered by anyone else.

Imagine you owned a company where telephone orders were an important part of your business. Now imagine one of your local competition goes out of business – your orders would jump if you could divert the telephone callers from the competitors telephone number to your own number.

This is the same with domains – if a domain expires it can be re-registered and set up so that anybody that enters the expired domain into their internet browser would automatically get re-directed to your website. The increase in visitor numbers for such a simple procedure can make researching expired domains very worthwhile, and quite possibly very lucrative.

So you can see that some expired domains can become very valuable for the relevant companies. Those domains that have a high number of visitors, and matching products, can become very sought after.

A whole new market has opened up dealing in domains. The better known part of the domain market doesn’t deal so much with expired domains, but high value domains in their own right, such as business.com, or sex.com. These domains rarely become available, and when they do the prices make them out of reach for most people.

A lesser known part of the domain market deals in expired domains. If you can find a domain that’s about to expire, and the domain receives lots of visitors, then you can try to re-register it. Once you have successfully registered the expired domain you will have several options – you could place adverts on that domain, or you could build a new website on that domain, or you could offer it for sale. As mentioned above, some companies may be willing to pay a lot of money for a matching domain that will complement their website.

I hope this article has helped explain the significance of expired names. If you are interested in finding out more, there are several sources of information on expiring domains on the internet. After all, the internet is based on domains. You should take some time to look and see what’s on offer – expired domains could prove to be very lucrative for you.

entrepreneur, business, marketing

‘One who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise’

Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary

Ho Humm… does that do it for you?

Why? …

Because you are probably one of them, an Entrepreneur.

Think back when you began entrepreneurial endeavors.

Now think of Lewis and Clarke, Magellan, Columbus, or the Wright brothers. Explorers…entrepreneurs, I see very little difference.

We are in it for the game, for the recognition, financial rewards
and possibly the adventure.

As “Amelia Earhart, Christopher Columbus, Leonardo da Vinci, and You”… WE CONTROL OUR DESTINY; call the shots, for better or
worse, and Take Charge.

An Entrepreneurs Story

Imagine yourself, going to say goodbye to you boss, or your largest competitor.

‘Hi Jack, I just dropped in to say goodbye… I’m throwing in the towel, closing up shop. It’s just too difficult doing business.’

When you see the subtle glimmer in his eye, trying so hard
to convey sympathy, and you know, he is thinking about throwing a party…Yes sir, it is just too difficult running this operation any longer from this environment. I have gone global, working out of my new home here in any town, using my laptop and my cell phone while I travel.

Have you heard that I am
teaching others to do what we do, and that I have fewer than four employees, that’s including my fifteen-year-old son?

How did my business grow so quickly? I
hired an expert marketing consultant that charges $100,000 for one consulting session. – You will still get to see me occasionally in the success journals, or as a speaker at our national convention.

‘Have to go now Jack, hope to see you soon”!

Walking away now, a grin of satisfaction emerges from within, while
thinking to your’s-self… “I forgot to mention that I didn’t pay $100,000, and that I merely subscribed to a Marketing Newsletter, and some information
reports.
A Marketing Master in a mall.

Entrepreneurs… ‘Be All You Can Be’

Have you heard it knocking?

Someone once said that opportunity knocks.

Oh no not a physical knock but in the form of a thought, an idea, a whisper of a recollection…

Sometimes I believe opportunity literally SCREAMS to Do IT Now!

As that idea, thought, or opportunity fades away, becoming dim and distant, the ghost of opportunity past creeps in… Hindsight.

Do it Now… You will be glad you did.

Although CSS was first introduced in the mid 1990s, it did not become a mainstream tool among web designers and masters until more recent years. This is unfortunate, because there are millions of poorly designed web sites cluttering the internet that could be easily improved with the help of CSS.

So what exactly is CSS? CSS is an acronym that stands for Cascading Style Sheets. The term Cascading Style Sheets implies two things. First off, the style sheets are cascading. This means that multiple style sheets can be used for a single web page. Additionally, the term “cascading” also refers to the way a style is determined in the event that more than one rule matches a single element. The second thing that is implied by the name Cascading Style Sheets is that the purpose of CSS is to style web pages. Whereas the purpose of HTML (or XHTML) is to define the structure of a web page, the purpose of CSS is to define the presentation.

The reason that so many web pages have broken layouts in different browsers is because they try to use HTML to control the structure and presentation of the page. The most common abuse of HTML is attempting to use tables as a presentation method. Although you may be able to achieve the look you want in a single browser, your web page will look broken and distorted in many other browsers. The only time that tables should be used is to hold a set of data (such as the results from a scientific experiment). If you do have a legitimate use for tables on your web page, you can even use CSS to style your table and make it more attractive.

By taking the time to learn CSS, you will be able to create a web page that looks much more consistent across a variety of browsers.

Do you want to make money through the Internet but you don’t have enough experience or capital to start your own online business? You don’t have to worry, for a lot of online marketing options exist for you to start with. One of these options, and shall I say the best, is affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing provides first time online marketers like you the chance to market something online even without having your own product to sell. All you have to do is to sign up with an affiliate marketing program, which is usually owned by an online merchant or retailer, and start picking the products you want to promote. As an affiliate, you are paid by the merchant for your services on a commission basis, that is whenever you have directed a visitor to the merchant’s site and the visitor actually buys something.

Becoming an affiliate in an affiliate marketing program is often quick and easy, and for most affiliate programs, signing up is also free. But despite these and all the benefits being promised by affiliate programs, many people are still hesitant to get into affiliate marketing. One of the reasons why a lot of people remain hesitant is the lack of a website to start marketing his affiliate products with. This now leads us to the question of whether a website is required or necessary in affiliate marketing or not.

Many people say that one can do affiliate marketing even without a website to start with. Actually, one can really start promoting and marketing his affiliate products even without a website; and there exist a lot of ways on how this can be done. In fact, many affiliate marketing strategies that leads to success can exist without actually needing a website. Among these strategies are email marketing, offline promotions, writing e-books, writing ezines and engaging in online discussions like forums, chats, message boards and others.

*Email Marketing

Email marketing, or maintaining email lists, is actually the most popular affiliate marketing strategy that doesn’t require the affiliate to maintain a website. In this affiliate marketing strategy, what you basically do is maintain a list of the email ads of your prospective customers and provide them with articles that are relevant with the affiliate products and programs you are promoting. Articles that you provide your contacts with need not always be promotional, for many individuals find such types of email annoying. Rather, it would be better if you provide them with something informative and just add small text ads that link to your merchant’s site.

*Offline Promotion

There are many ways on how you can promote your affiliate products offline. Among the common medium used for such promotions are classified ads, brochures and flyers. Classified ads would generally work better compared to the other two because classified ads in periodicals often get a wider audience.

*Writing Free e-books

If you have a knack in writing, writing an e-book can be the best way for you to promote your affiliate products in the absence of an actual website. Just like in emails and newsletters, your readers would better appreciate your e-book if it is not too promotional but rather informative. Be sure, however, to make the contents of your e-books relative to the actual affiliate products you are promoting. And just like in email marketing, you can just place text ads or banners somewhere near the end of your e-book that links to the merchant’s site.

*Writing Free Ezines

Ezines are publications or articles that aim to inform individuals about a particular topic. If you don’t have a website and yet want to be an affiliate, you can well use ezines to promote your affiliate products or to insert links to your merchant’s site. If you have a website, your ezine article may actually work well as content for your site. But since you have no website, you can just submit your free ezine articles to various websites that hosts ezines, like goarticles.com, ezinearticles.com and others.

*Online discussions (Forums, Chats, Message Boards, etc.)

With or without a website, you just can’t ignore online discussions because they are great venues for marketing your affiliate products. In chats, forums, message boards and discussion boards with topics related to your products, you can easily find people who may be interested with the products you are promoting.

With all these strategies, it may appear that one really doesn’t need to have a website to start marketing his affiliate products and promoting his affiliate programs. Well, starting in an affiliate program without a website may be easy, but getting successful in affiliate marketing without a website is another thing. While one can actually gain enormous success in affiliate marketing even without a website, it is a rare instance that “newbies” like you can reach the same levels of success.

Having a website is not really a pre-requisite in entering into an affiliate program, unless otherwise the program owner would require you to have one. But while this is so, I would still recommend that you have for yourself a website, if not now, then maybe at a later time. Having a website creates a lot of advantages in affiliate marketing. For one, it provides you a place where you can creatively promote not only one of your affiliate products but all of your affiliate products. With a website, you can also advertise your affiliate products to a wider market.

Again, having a website is not a requirement in affiliate marketing. But with the advantages that a website can provide, I’d rather have one for myself and make affiliate marketing a lot easier for me.
