Greetings fellow Cave Dwellers,
I thought I would talk today about something near and dear to my heart.
Working from home.
For many of us working outside the home is not an option. We need flexible hours and a job we can relate to or we won't stick with it.
One option is affiliate marketing. For those who have no idea what I am talking about, affiliate marketing is where you sell a product for someone else and get a percentage. Kind of like commission selling.
There are a lot of places on the net where you can become an affiliate at no cost. All you need to do is advertise the product or service and when a sale is made you get paid.
In a later post I will go in depth about some programs I use. There is a lot out there, so you can find something you can get behind.
For those who want something now here is the link to clickbank. This company has thousands of products you can sort through and just sell those you are interested in.
Now an excellent way to get people to go to your links is to talk about the products. Preferably you have bought it yourself, if not at least find out as much about it as you can and write a review with a link either in the text or in the resource box at the bottom if you are posting your review in an article directory (more on those later).
A good place to post is on a blog. This one is good. I also have a blog at Search Big Daddy. SBD is a great resource for anyone with a home business. You get a personal search portal and $50 in free advertising along with a top keyword position to advertise your products. There is also a blog there, mine is at http://bloglanding.com/kdries. For EVERY WORD you blog you get Advantage Points. These are used like money to pay for your ppc advertising. They can also be used to purchase banner ads, discount coupons for Restaurants and the like, with more to come. They have even made it easy to earn AP's by creating a downloadable search bar so it is right there in your browser when you need it. And you should make a point to search every day because searching also gives you AP's.
So to recap..Affiliate programs allow you to sell products at home for a commission, and a great way to advertise them at no cost is through blogging, preferably at Search Big Daddy because it Pays you to post and search there. :-))
Till next time, this is Cave Woman signing off. Got to go search at SBD.
