Introduction to Affiliate Marketing



Many of us looking to begin our own online business have already heard of the term “affiliate marketing”.  It is a great way to build a residual income that keeps generating revenue, even while we are sleeping.  But affiliate marketing can be a bit tricky.  The topic or area of business that we select needs one that holds our attention for the long term if we want to build a highly successful and profitable business.

Because we are going to be spending a great deal of time writing articles and squeeze pages, responding to blog comments from potential customers, and creating engaging posts on several forms of social media,  choosing niches that appeal to our personal interests is critical.  After all, this is a topic in which we are going to be spending a great deal of time in the upcoming months and years.  Don’t let the driving force behind your affiliate choice be based solely on money.  Choose a niche that you can write about for a very long time while remaining interested and focused.

Understanding the Secrets to a Successful Affiliate Marketing



Hello all! Today we are starting to discuss the great secrets to make your living on the Internet.

In the world of online business, you are given numerous options to earn extra income and each of them offers a wide array of incredible ways to get started. Through the advanced use of internet, most business owners take advantage of various opportunities available. Basically, you will encounter the terms “affiliate marketing”, “traffic monetization”, and “email marketing”.
 
What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing has been considered as the fastest and easiest way to stay in the internet business. It means that you are going to affiliate yourself with certain and market their services or products. There is nothing to worry about your service or product development, after-sales service or about credit card clearance, billing or shipping. 

To become a successful affiliate marketer, develope a list of visitors for your website. People accept pieces of advice from somebody they trust. However, their defense is up in terms of advertisers. For this reason, such businesses need affiliate. When you recommend and trust a certain product, it will be easier for that company to obtain higher sales rate. 

The key is to build trust with the average visitors of your site. To do so, you have to post a stimulating and interesting content on the web page. Make sure that you are going to make regular updates of your pages.

Traffic Monetization 

Monetizing can be a tricky thing in the world of internet marketing business. Traffic monetization is comprised of various crucial aspects that give a great impact in the overall performance of the business. There are companies that can help you monetize your business portfolio. Most of them provide the following services:

  • Detailed reporting
  • No set up fees
  • Free hosting
  • Dedicated account managers
  • Competitive revenue share model
  • Statistical analysis for maximum revenue
  • Propriety optimization tools

Solutions 

There are already traffic monetization services developed by several service providers. Many of them have partners that include online properties ranging from content sites, parked domains and search engines. They basically work with the publishers for monetizing their traffic with competitive and relevant performance advertisements. 

Email Marketing 

There were rumors that the use of email is gone. However, it remains a more significant and more effective way of acquiring potential clients compared to social media. Email marketing has been driven by data just like other tools in the arsenal of the B2B Marketer. Such data can ensure that all email campaigns were aligned with interests and points of the customers and prospects. When you spot their concerns, your email will be opened. 

On the other hand, there were personalized emails that are producing transaction rates of 6 times higher than those non-personalized emails. 

Some important things to consider when doing the email marketing: control and message time, behavior of the prospect or the customer, regular updates and more. 

As an internet marketer, flexibility is a very important factor. You have to ensure that you can easily adopt the newest methods and approaches in introducing your products or services to target your customers. In this way, you will obtain a smooth flow of transaction in the business.

How To Mine Bitcoin? - ASIC Block Erupter

Hello all! I'd like to wish you a happy new year. I recently got my USB block erupter, and I'd like to share my experiences about it today.

As you can remember from my post, Cryptocoin Mining, hardware with powerful computing is needed to mine cryptocurrencies with a remarkable profit. I have mentioned ASIC block erupters, which can be connected via USB, and their high hashrate for mining. I made a quick research on eBay for block erupters, and saw that they are very popular. I joined one auction and won my block erupter at a price of 83 $. Yesterday I got it:


The block erupter is very easy to use. It has a nominal hashrate of 330 MH/s, operating at 2.5 W (500 mA) and 50 °C. In order to use it, you have to install the required drivers and use a proper miner. CGMiner and BFGMiner are the best for this purpose, with the latter being easier to use.
  1. Download CGMiner or BFGMiner.

  2. Download and install block erupter COM driver from here.

  3. Plug in the block erupter. Once you have properly installed the driver and your erupters are plugged in, they will appear in "Devices and Printers" on your computer. Make a note of what COM port the device is connected to.

  4. If you will use CGMiner, run cgminer-nongpu.exe instead of cgminer.exe. You can make a shortcut and add the following in the target box of the shortcut, which you can access by right-clicking the shortcut and selecting "Properties":

    cgminer-nogpu.exe -o [pool]:[port] -u [username_worker] -p [password] --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 -S //./COM(X) -S //./COM(Y) -S //./COM(Z) etc.

    Here, COM(X), COM(Y), COM(Z) denotes the COM ports your erupters are using, which you made a note of in the previous step.

  5. Start CGMiner from the shortcut or the command line with the necessary options. You should be seeing the familiar screen of the miner if you make the configurations correctly.

  6. For BFGMiner, it is not required to put the COM ports section of the options in the target box. After creating a shortcut for BFGMiner, just add the following in the target box of the shortcut:

    bfgminer.exe
    -o [pool]:[port] -u [username_worker] -p [password] -G* -S all --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100

    * If not using a graphics card on the same machine

  7. Start BFGMiner from the shortcut or the command line with the necessary options. You should be seeing the familiar screen of the miner if you make the configurations correctly.
That's it. Just start mining your cryptocoins right now with your ASIC block erupter.

You can also join the pool of CEX.IO, which is GHash.IO, by directing your block erupter to their pool. You can get the directions for doing this on the pool's page. Of course, you need to open a free account on CEX.IO first.

It is important to note one last thing about the erupter: Which cryptocurrencies can you mine with it?

The answer is simple: You can only mine coins with SHA-256 algorithm with the erupter. These include Bitcoin, Peercoin, Namecoin and  some others. Unfortunately, you cannot mine coins with Scrypt algorithm with the erupter, so you will not be able to mine Litecoin, Feathercoin and others with Scrypt algorithm. You can get information on which coins have which algorithm and a nice profit calculater on Cryptocoin Mining Information.

Good luck with your mining adventure and see you soon!

How To Mine Bitcoin? - CEX.IO

A very warm hello to everybody. I'd like to wish you a Merry Christmas, and a new year full of happiness and opportunities.

Today I'd like to give information on a very efficient concept for Bitcoin mining. It's called "cloud mining", and it's really a revolutionary way to earn money from Bitcoin mining. As you might remember from my earlier post, Cryptocoin Mining, it is required to have hardware that is capable of powerful computing, like FPGAs and ASICs. These kind of hardware are on the market now, and you can even buy a USB block erupter that runs at 336 MH/s at 80 $ or so.

What CEX.IO offers is that you do not have to buy a hardware directly and you can mine your Bitcoins by buying GH/s, namely the mining hashrate. They have very professional mining equipment already installed. The only thing to do is to buy units (or fractions) of GH/s and start making profit. The registration is completely free and you can register here right now: CEX.IO Registration

After registration, you fund your account by sending Bitcoins or other types of altcoins to the wallet addresses found under the "Balance" tab. The miners not only mine Bitcoins in the process, but also they mine some altcoins like Namecoin, Ixcoin and Devcoin.

After funding your account, you can create a buy order for any amount of GH/s you like. You can even buy a 0.000001 unit of GH/s, which is essentially equivalent to 1kH/s. The greatest advantage of the system is that, you cannot buy a fraction of the actual mining hardware on the market, but you can even buy a modest amount of it with little funding and start mining directly here.

Another advantage is that you can buy and sell GH/s units whenever you want. There is a market of GHS/BTC on the website that runs continuously. You can sell your GH/s units when they are expensive, and if the Bitcoin price has also risen at the time, your earnings will increase a lot.

You can always withdraw your Bitcoins or other altcoins under the "Balance" tab by entering your wallet number after clicking "Withdrawal" button. You can also examine your earnings for Bitcoins and altcoins, deposits and withdrawals on the same page under "Transactions".
And here's a good tip for you: Why not to use the free Bitcoins you earned from the Bitcoin faucets and ad viewing websites that I have mentioned in my earlier posts, How to Earn Bitcoin? - Faucets and How to Earn Bitcoin? - Other Faucets and Ad Viewing, for buying Bitcoin miners on CEX.IO? By this way, you'll make money from free money. Think about it.

I hope I have helped you introducing this efficient method of Bitcoin mining today. See you soon.

Bitcoin Domain Flipping

Hello to everyone. I have explored the Bitcoin frenzy in my latest posts, today I'd like to make a smooth transition to more of Internet marketing and money making methods. Of course, I will continue to write on crypto-currency world, since I think that crypto-currencies will be a regular part of our lives in the future for trading goods like real-life money.

I'd like to talk about domain flipping today. I'll write on this subject more later, because it's a lucrative business like real estate business. Domain flipping is like gold mining. You have to explore what's on the agenda of the Internet today, and make a good estimation for the future. You have to find potential keywords that may become very popular in the future.

What I'd like to come to is, of course domain names related to Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are worth investing today. I have registered some domains related to crypto-currencies recently. I have used my local domain name registrant and GoDaddy. I will later mention other worthwhile registrants later when I explore domain flipping in detail.

After registering domain names, all you have to do is to sell them at a marketplace. I'm now using one of the local marketplace websites, GoDaddy Auctions and Sedo. Sedo is also one of the most established and trusted marketplaces for domain flipping on the Internet.

I have listed my three domains, changecryptocoin.comexchangecryptocoin.com and forexcryptocoin.com on GoDaddy Auctions. You can join the auction even right now on the website with a minimum bid of 50 $. I have also listed another domain I have registered, forumbitco.in, on Sedo. I have not put this domain on auction yet, and I have listed it with a "buy now" option with an exclusive asking price of 299 $ I will later use the auctions on Sedo and give my review on that.

It is also a good idea to park your domains for higher visibility on the Internet. For example, after listing your domain on Sedo, you can park your domain by going to domain management page on your registrant's website, point the nameservers to ns1.sedoparking.com and ns2.sedoparking.com. By this way, you can easily point the visitors to Sedo and make faster trading.

As of now, the auctions for changecryptocoin.comexchangecryptocoin.com and forexcryptocoin.com on GoDaddy Auctions are running. You're welcome to join them if you're interested in with a minimum bidding of 50 $ and if you want to make a fresh start to domain flipping business. Also you can consider buying a domain with high potential like forumbitco.in on Sedo for an exclusive price of 299 $ for a limited time.

Have a nice day!
