Making Money Through Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing has been around for a long time now; you’ll find affiliate marketers using various techniques to boost their sales and make more money, some new and some old. Using affiliate programs on a blog and promoting these products through your posts is an idea that isn’t alien to bloggers. Many online marketers have successfully used affiliate programs on their blogs and have been able to generate good revenue. The primary purpose behind this article is to teach you how to properly implement the very same affiliate marketing strategies into your own blog.

Diversify Your Efforts: It’s easy to stick to just one product when doing affiliate promotions and not go any further than that.

McDonalds, Apple, Nike and You

What does McDonald’s, Apple, and Nike have to do with you and your business?

In 1954, when Ray Kroc drove into the very first McDonalds Restaurant, he saw fast service! Ray took the idea and ran with it. It wasn’t long, and other companies were following Ray’s business model. McDonald’s restaurants served more than 58 million people a day in 2008.

For almost 30 years, Apple has maintained its lead in computer, consumer electronics, and innovative software. In 2008, Fortune Magazine named Apple the most admired company in the United States. Devoted Apple customers boosted sales for 2008 to over 32 billion dollars worldwide.

Business- A “Just Do It” Attitude

Nike’s marketing campaign of “Just Do It” is one of the most successful campaigns on the planet. Nike took their campaign global during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

“Just Do It” works because it shows the drive and dedication of the Olympic athletes to overcome all obstacles.

Are You a Geek?

You are a Geek if you love figuring out all of the technical ends of the Internet, computers and all the latest gadgets. Well, that is certainly not me! Although I most certainly appreciate what they do.

Finding a Computer Geek became a top priority, when my sister, Kathy had run into problems with her webmaster. Now, this couldn’t be your ordinary run-of-the-mill Geek. They had to meet certain criteria: be a WordPress Geek, live in Utah (for hands-on tutorials), willing to clearly answer in a language we could understand, and do the job!
