I Hate CLICKBANK... I Just Don't Get It!!!

Written By Lonnie Niver

One of the highest paying affiliate programs on the internet is Clickbank. The people struggling with ClickBack hate the program because they don't understand how the program works. There is a way to choose the right vendor that will make them the most commission. We need to give them guidance and training that will help them start making money.

Now I want to set this straight right now before I go on with this article...


Listen to me, it took me almost 2 years to learn how ClickBank works before I saw any money and I had no training and no one to walk me down the right path. Consider yourself lucky for finding this article because I am going to take
you hand and show you how to choose the right vendor to cash in on. I already started making a list for you on my site at LonnieNiver.com to help you get started.

Here is the fun stuff...

NOT REALLY, But it will be once you know how it works.

I am going to show you what I look for when searching for a vendor to cash in on. All you will have to do is follow my lead and you will make money. Will you make money tomorrow? Probably not but you will have the tools to choose the right vendors for your niche market.

Let's get started!


The first thing I do is look at the gravity of the vendor. The gravity tells me how many other affiliate marketers are making money with that particular vendor. The higher the number the more popular the vendor. Most affiliate marketers, especially newbies, will use a vendor with a high gravity. I don't because I feel the market is saturated and will be really hard to make any money. I will look for vendors with a gravity between 100 and 50 because the market has yet to been saturated. By choosing a vendor within this gravity range will give me an upper hand over other affiliate marketers.


After I have found the vendor within my gravity range I will check the commission rate. I want to make money, right? I will look at the Avg %/Sale for my commission rate. The rate I am looking for is somewhere between $49 and $29. I want to make sure I make enough commission for my efforts. I could choose a smaller commission but I would have to work harder to sale a lot of product. Time is an essence so, I don't
have time to mess with the smaller commissions and I really don't want to work any harder than I have too.

Referral Sales

The next factor in my decision making for a vendor is the Referral Sales or %refd. This tells me the percentage of sales that other affiliate marketers are referring. I select vendors that have a range between 50% to 100% because I want to make sure I am going to make a sale. I could choose a lower percentage rate but the chances of me making money are very slim.

The 3 factors above are how I determine a vendor and so far it has worked for me. Other affiliate marketers have their own way of choosing a vendor but this technique has worked for me so I am not ready to get rid of something that isn't broken. Remember, even though I say this works for me it may not work for you but it doesn't hurt to try when it's free, right. I wish you all great success!

Why Can't I Get My Landing Page To Rank At The Top?

Affiliate home based business for moms

Written By Lonnie Niver

Landing Pages
or also know as a squeeze page. They are the marketing pipeline where traffic is sent to. Today, Landing pages are a crucial tool used to building any internet business no matter what the product or services are. But, there is a right and a wrong way to using them and if not used correctly they could hurt the business.

The purpose for using landing pages is to convert visitors into buyers. They provide
valuable information about the product/services and how much money a potential visitor may make. If a visitor can not be converted from the landing page then nothing else will even matter. Meaning that the visitor didn't find what they were looking for.

Most people will use a landing page as a web page. Unless you have created your own landing page this would be considered the wrong way of using a landing page. The problem is that if a online business creates a landing page for their affiliate program, how many landing pages would you say is on the internet. For one online business there could be thousands of the same landing page on the internet. Search Engines don't like duplication so, they won't bother crawling the site to give it ranking. Search Engines like fresh content to offer the surfers.

I use a landing page as an informational page that is linked from my blog or article. I created a blog that I update just about everyday. I keep fresh new content on the blog so the search engines will crawl my site in hopes to rank my blog at the top. Same thing with articles, as I write an article I place a link to the landing page at the
bottom of the article. When someone reads my article the link is offered.

The next time you are using a landing page type in keywords for the landing page on a search engine and see how many other people are using the same landing page. If they are on top they won't stay there long. You can and will get better results if you take the time to create a blog and/or article with a landing page link. You can even make the have similar information as the landing page and add the link as an opportunity for more information.

Are Your Twitter Posts Getting Read?

Affiliate marketing business moms

Written by Lonnie Niver

Do you ever get the feeling that posting to Twitter is a waist of time because your post
disappears just as fast as it was posted? I know exactly how you feel! I have felt the
same feeling until I fell upon a secret that probably most Twitter members don't know
about. This is not really a secret, it's just not something people come a cross when they first start posting.

What is this secret?

It is called using keywords! WHAT?

I know it sounds crazy but here me out for a second while I explain.

One day I was doing some research on Twitter. Some of things I found I all ready
knew about except for the one thing that mattered, using "KEYWORDS".

You have probably noticed a search box on the right side under all your followers
thumbnails. Well, it isn't there to look pretty! It's there for you to use as a tool to
find your targeted market using keywords. That's right I said targeted market!

I know targeted market is a stuck in the mud because people want to know how to determine their targeted market but just don't seem to get it so, they throw it to the side and forget about it. But if you take time and do a search you will find people who are talking about your particular keyword for your targeted audience. When you add these keywords into your post it will appear under that search. Plus, you can save your keywords to keep track of what's working for your market.

When you think your posts are not being viewed you are probably right if you're not using keywords. But if you take the time and research the keywords for your targeted market you will get tons of traffic to your site.

The Science Of Automated Article & Blog Traffic!

Written By Lonnie Niver

A few weeks ago I wrote and article called "How To Funnel Prospects To Your Business!" and it didn't get as much attention as I hoped so, I decided to do some research. What I learned was that there were already a lot of people using Twitter-feed on twitter to funnel traffic to their business. As I was digging an online friend of mine introduced me to another website. This other site allowed me to connect 4 sites so when I write an article it is automated to my blog and then notifies friends and family of my article. This site is called blogomator.com and it is free!

What I have done is created a video that will walk you through the process of building
your traffic funnel for your articles. Click on this link to watch the video! Now, this video
only shows the setup for ezinearticles.com on blogomator.com. Blogomator has said they are
in the process of setting up blogs for blogger s.com and then we will be able to update information on
blogger sites.

There is no sound other than music. I had to add annotations to the video because my audio
wasn't matching up. I believe that the annotations will work better because you can pause the
video if you need to read how to do something.

There are 6 sites you'll want to subscribe to complete this process. The sites are as follows:


Once you finish setting up each account you can start using the video to create your funnel.
I hope you enjoy the video and learn a lot from it. If you would please leave a comment.

I forgot to mention that each site above is free to join, for those of you who are not sure.

Is Anyone Listening To a word you are saying!

Have you every felt like you are not being heard on social networks?

You keep adding information and adding information and it feels like you're
wasting time because nobody is listening. Then you start second guessing
yourself on if the content you're sharing has any value to it.

Unless your content is written in 1st grade language I am sure it is fine because
I have felt that way many many times. Then I came a cross an article that
explains why it is so hard to get others to listen.

It's not your content, It's you!

No, it's not because you don't know what you're talking about it's because you're
not seen as someone with enough knowledge to help anyone else. In order to get peoples
attention you have to be consistent in your information. Keep your information up to date
and fresh.

Some people don't like to place their picture on the web but pictures allow others to get to know you
on a personal level. Add a picture to your social profile so people can see who they are talking about.
Also, keep the same photo for all sites will help people know who you are no matter where you go.

I see so many people on the internet that when I see their photo I have a since of who they are and will
invite them to be friends.

Stress Free Solutions to Writers Block!

Do you have trouble finding content to write for you blog?


Does writers block haunt you when you need to write fresh content for your blog?

There are a few solutions to keeping fresh new content on your blog while you are searching for content to write.

The first solution has a cost to it but takes all the stress and frustration out of writing called "ghost writing". Some people
are afraid to use ghost writers to write content and don't need to be. Ghost writers are freelance writers who are paid to
write content. When you purchase the text you become the owner and can post the content anywhere and add your name to it.

Now if your looking for freelance writers you can find them at: www.guru.com, www.getafreelancer.com or www.elance.com. You
would offer writing projects and the freelance writers bids on the job.

Paying for a ghost writer will save you a lot of time and headaches trying to keep fresh new content added to your sites. But if you
don't have the budget you can borrow content that is related to your content. There are article submission sites that will allow
people to borrow someone else's content. One site that I use is called www.ezinearticles.com. The authors of the content on Ezine articles
understand their content may be published by other people. The cons of using Ezine Articles you must keep the content and links of the articles.
Meaning you can not alter the information because it is not yours. The pros is that you can keep fresh new content on your blog when you have
writers block or even when you are sleeping.

Although using articles from ezine articles helps provide fresh new content I wouldn't use it all the time. Try adding your own articles to your blog
and use ezine articles only when you are experience a writers block.

Now the solutions I have mentioned have to be added to your blog manually, right? No!

You can have a freelancer or the ezine articles posted to your blog automatically. How, by posting them to Blogomator. At www.Blogomator.com the content can be uploaded to your blog and you won't have to worry about your blog for a while.

Don't let writers block stop you from making money online with affiliate programs. Take the stress out of writing!

Are you Ready To Go Fishing?

Written By Lonnie Niver

I love to fish, especially for steel heads off the Great Lakes. I would like to take you on a fishing adventure. The type of fish we are fish for are very sophisticated and it requires a specific type of bait that grabs their attention and causes them to go into a feeding frenzy. The type of fish we are going to catch are called prospects.


...Are you ready to go fishing?

Prospecting is much like fishing, you have to know your fish before you can catch them. First, find a pond where the fish are feeding. Then find the right type of bait that will cause them take the bait. I am taking with me a few special lures and My fishing rod. A heavy duty rod with a open face reel to catch the big fish. I like to go prepared for the big fish because they are the ones that put up a good fight.

Alright, time to go fishing!

What pond are we going to go fishing in first?

Let's start in my pond first and work our way up to the bigger ponds. I have a small pond the prospects in my pond are hungry to make money but are short on income. If the price is right they are eager to open their wallets. These prospects are either looking for extra income or they were laid off their job and have nothing better to do but to learn how to make money. They are also very sensitive when you ask them for money so the bait we will use is educational marketing. Instead of asking them to buy we are going to teach them how to make money to gain our trust and buy from us.

The first thing I will do is get out my heavy duty fishing rod I call Blogging. Blogging is a great way to start finding fish without the cost and you can add affiliate programs. While you're fishing you may get little nibbles here and there with the affiliate programs

Now I am going to add the bait which is educational marketing. Just like fishing there are many different baits to use so, we have to find a bait our prospects are feeding on. In mine pond I teach my prospects how to make money with affiliate programs for free. The information I offer has to be unique and have value or my prospects will swim away. To create a feeding frenzy I have to find something my prospects are willing to bite on.

I can start by offering free gifts for visiting my blog. I offer free places to find good money making affiliate programs. I also share how they can get traffic to their affiliate programs.

Now, what do we do if we get a big fish? We are going to need a net.
Net can get a little pricey called email marketing like Aweber. There is a cost but Aweber catches your prospects email addresses when you offer free information. I am sure you have seen this around if you've been trying to find an opportunity online. It is a very popular tool to use. Some will offer trial like Aweber who offers a 30 day trial for $1.

Now if your pond drys up then what?

Go find someone else's pond to fish in. One way is though the use of joint venturing! Joint venture (according to Wikipedia) is an entity formed between two or more parties to undertake economic activity together. What?

It simple means to go ask another business owner, preferably one that is not competing with your business, if they would be interested in doing a joint venture. This creates a win, win situation for both parties to share revenues and expenses.

There are three things you need before you go fishing for prospects, a pond filled with hungry prospects, the tools used to catch your prospects and the bait to reel them in. Once you have created a relationship with your prospects you can introduce you products, services or compensation to them.

To get in a joint venture with me send me a link to your website and opportunity and what you can offer my prospects and I will send you the offer I can send to yours. My email address is mrdeen51@gmail.com

How Can I Promote My Business On-line Without Spamming?

Written By Lonnie Niver

Spamming emails, forums and social networks has become an internet phenomenon. The more people who join online businesses the worse spamming is becoming.

Why is this happening?

NEW online business owners don't know how to market. They think that sending out unwanted emails or repeated postings will get results. But that is far from the truth! Spamming will cause negative responses and could tarnish a persons reputation. Others will come to know them as spammers and avoid them as much as possible.

What is considered spamming?

According to Wikipedia, spamming "is the abuse of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media:"...MORE

The best way to avoid spamming is to either ask someone to subscribe to an e-letter or newsletter that offers valuable information or to offer a solution to peoples problems. This way people will be expecting information.

I was looking over some blogs and noticed a few people where advertising their business in blogs that were short and sweet but offer nothing more than advertising or trying to get someone to join their Business Opportunity. This is a type of unwanted spam because it doesn't offer anything to readers.

While I was mentoring someone, I was trying to think of a way that best explains how people should promote their business and/or product. My example may not be the greatest but think of a commercial on Television:

Commercials don't shout out "buy me now", commercials are a form of marketing. They offer a solution to peoples problems some even use it to promote a new product explaining why it is a good change. This is how new business owners should think when promoting their product.

Find a problem that a product or service will solve and tell others why they need the product or service. But before this can happen they must find there Targeted Market because not everyone wants what we offer. For example: I am a male, right: so, why would any tampon company want to sell me tampons? Sorry, but I felt this was a good example of bad targeted marketing. Can't sell tampons to a male!

The point I am trying to make is that offering valuable information is crucial to building a business not spamming. If you spam you are going to tarnish your reputation and people are not going to do business with you. Information is what people want, to solve their problems. So, the next time you promote your product, service or business opportunity don't spam them, tell them how you can help them solve their problems and you will build a relationship that will give you life long customers that keep coming back for more.

I Am Camera Shy! Is Video Marketing For Everyone?

Written by Lylette Primell

Do you use surf exchanges or safe lists?

Have you ever clicked on a link only to feel totally aggravated by the video that pops up. In many cases an animated face and voice with uncoordinated hand gesticulations screaming at you.

Telling you that you need this or that product immediately to be on your way to your first million, best body weight, skin tone or whatever!

By the same token! Have you ever clicked on one of these links and there pops up a face and voice that is so engaging that it seems to be talking to you and you alone.

You give your entire attention over to it, your hand paused, your mouse forgotten. You listen in total silence to the entire video and at the end your feel like you have gained something valuable.

Now the question: Do you think that Video Marketing is for everyone?

I have pondered this for a while now especially with all the modern internet marketing gurus telling us that the next frontier in online marketing is Video Marketing?

What do you do then if you are one of those people who fall apart in front of a camera, you end up looking like crap, you suffer from instant vocal paralysis and you come off as appealing as a porcupine?

With that said! Does it mean that those of us who cannot for whatever reason master video marketing have to give up the idea of marketing online? I don't think so.

Here I think that I'll have to argue that the way to approach internet marketing with any hope of success is to figure out or know what your strengths are and use those to their maximum potential.

To my mind there is no point making videos that no one will pay attention to if you can write great content that someone is more likely to read.

So if you think that video marketing is not for you or that you are not yet ready to take on the camera. All you have to do is use other means of reaching your target audience.

Some of these could include blogging, article marketing, news letters, email marketing, social networking, bookmarking, search engine optimization just to give a quick list.

Most of all recognize what you are most adept at and put most if not all of your energy into that area.

I think it would be wise to leave video marketing for those who are good at it.

In the meantime as you learn, grow and develop your skills as an internet marketer you too may come to a place where you will one day master video marketing.

Do You Know How To Prospect?

Written By Lonnie Niver

as a privilege that must be earned before a product or an opportunity can be presented. To earn the right to prospect people you must first gain their trust. By gaining their trust you eliminate that fear factor in doing business with you.

In today's network marketing, failure starts the minute you regurgitate a sells pitch. YUK! I know, but it's a fact that as soon as a referral joins an opportunity the first thing they want to do is tell the world. They put a names list together and start calling everyone they know. Before you know it they drop out and start bad mouthing the company. Maybe 60 years ago this kind of network marketing business model would have worked.

But not today!

There are too many scams on the internet and everyone is looking for the get rich quick business.

Sad to say there's not one!

We can earn the right to prospect by using Attraction Marketing. Attraction marketing is nothing more than teaching others or providing a solution to someones problem rather than selling a pitch.

But how...

A commercial you see on T.V. is probably one of the best examples of providing a solution to a problem with out using a sales pitch. When a commercial pops up does it say buy my product or join my business?

NO! They offer solutions to someones problem for example: A deodorant commercial doesn't tell you to go buy their product. Instead it tells a story of how to solve the problem of body odor.

You're product provides a solution so, you have to find out what your prospects problems are (Target Market) and teach them how your product will solve their problems. If you start with a sales pitch they will shut you off and then you lose. Start by using free tools such as blogging, writing articles, joining social networks and try out video marketing to tell people about your solution.

Have you heard the phrase "teaching sells"? Well it does and it can bring great wealth if used correctly.

Doesn't mean we can't promote a product or opportunity. You just have to earn the right to present it. I tell my boys that driving a car is a privilege and must be earned. If the laws of the road aren't followed the privilege can be taken away. Same principle applies to prospecting! If you use the sales pitch approach you loose the privilege to prospect. But by building a relationship and trust with a prospect through teaching you then earned the right to prospect because you have sold yourself.

Blogging For Profits!

Written By Lonnie Niver

There are a lot of bloggers missing out on potential income from blogging. Bloggers are either not educated or think it's too much work to get started. But there is one program that is easy to set up and will provide an income for life while blogging, it's called "Clickbank". Clickbank can be added to a blog as simple 1, 2, 3. Just simply coping and pasting a code and BAM the code appears and nothing else needs to be done. Within minutes you can have your Clickbank ads up and running and making money in no time.

This article is for bloggers who are using blogspot.com to blog. If you're using a different type of blog system check your back office to see if they allow clickbank ads to be added to your blog.

I am going to show you how easy it is to add Clickbank codes to your blog. Then when you are complete all you have to do is continue to do what your doing, "blogging".

Let's get started:

Step 1: Go to your Clickblank account and login.
Step 2: Under Account settings select Hop Ad Builder. The Hop Ad Builder creates a list of ads that are related to your blog instead of you having to add ads manual. If you know how Google Adsense work then this is the same concept.
Step 3: In the left box called Text Ad Builder click on Get Started
Step 4: Add Keywords that are related to your blog then click next.
Step 5: You want to select Wide_Skyscraper-200x600, 5 rows, 1 col under Popular Ad Layout everything else should stay the same unless you know how to make the changes. Click Next
Step 6: Under Your Ad Code Copy the entire code you see in the box. Now it is time to go to your blog!
Step 7: Click on Layout and then Add A Gaget
Step 8: Select HTML/Java Script and paste the clickbank code into the box and then click save.

Clickbank is a great source of making a profit online while you blog but if you don't have a good flow of traffic to your blog then the click bank is going to be useless. Some of the key things to help you be successful and generate more traffic with your blog and Clickbank ads are using good quality keywords so, make sure you add keywords that are related to your blog. This will help the appropriate Clickbank ad to show on your blog. If you are having trouble finding keywords you can always use the Google Keyword Tool to find keywords for your blog.

Go to https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal and select Website content and then add your blogs url in the box. Next, select Get Keyword Ideas and wait a few minutes. You should see a list of keywords related to your blog and all you have to do is add a few of those words in step 4 above.

When you are done setting up your blog submit your blog to blog directories to help generate more traffic. The directories are filled with other bloggers that may have the same interest as you do.

Now, you don't want to have to manually notify every blog directory that you just joined about a new post so, use an automated system called Ping my blog. Pingmyblog.com is just a simple automated system to let every blog directory you are a member of that you just completed a new blog.

Another thing you can do to get more traffic is to bold your keywords. Don't go bold happy just bold a few keywords at the beginning and a few at the center and end of the blog. If you bold too many your blog could get banned form search engines. Bolding keywords can help the search engine robots crawl your site to find keywords related to a search.

Blogging has become a huge profit generating tools on the internet so, you can either blog just for fun and earn nothing or you can have more fun and earn profits while you blog. Either way, just have fun blogging.
