Increase Blog Conversion RatesLet’s be honest here.  The main reason most people blog is to make money.  Sure it’s fun to create content that’s really helpful to readers.  However our end goal should be to increase Internet income.

Unfortunately it’s easy to forget about the business aspect of blogging.  We all get sidetracked by the day-to-day activities to grow our readership.

That’s why today’s post focuses on how to increase blog conversion rates.

The purpose is to help you implement systems into your routine.  Ultimately this will increase blogging revenue. [click to continue…]

Adobe PDF IconWe all know that offering a free report is a great way to build a list.

{This is especially true if you want to build a profitable, six-figure affiliate marketing business.}

But what some might not consider is the value that’s often provided with these freebies.  Often, a person will give away their best stuff in one of these guides!

So the other day I did some digging.  I decided to search around the blogosphere and link to the best free ebooks; relating to the Internet Lifestyle topic.

Without further ado; here are 61 68 of my personal favorites: [click to continue…]

Video Player ImageIt’s been awhile since I’ve created a video.  So here’s one that’s specifically designed to help increase your affiliate commissions.

An annoying thing about being an affiliate marketer is being forced to send traffic to opt-in page.  In my opinion, this often decreases the money you can make from a product.

Here are a few reasons why:

  1. You’ve worked hard to presell the product not the opt-in page.
  2. You’ve already sent people to the opt-in page
  3. You know the product owner will steal your commissions by promoting other affiliate offers in their follow-up sequence (Yes…some do that!)
  4. You know the opt-in page doesn’t convert.

It really doesn’t matter why you want to avoid an opt-in page.  Sometimes it makes business sense to send prospects directly to the sales page.

The good news is you can easily do this with a free tool I found at the Fast Blog Finder site. [click to continue…]
