Welcome to a New Day

Everyday scores of new people are searching the internet in an attempt to find protection against a changing economy, a way to easy wealth, a home based business or many other financially driven motives. The sole purpose of this site is to provide simple tools and methods to guide them in their sojourn through what can seem like a thick tangled undergrowth of information, most of which is useless, or too difficult for the new internet marketer to understand. One term that will never appear again here in our text is "newbie." I avoid the term as I consider it condescending! You will also never see images of red sportscars, palm trees and yachts in front of big homes on this site! Will you ever have these things? Maybe. if you are willing to work hard, but will you get rich quick? Absolutely not! This is a way to earn extra money, not a way to an easy fortune!
Please note: Any claims made on any product links or ads are solely by the owner or creator of the product or the ad writer.

This is a new dawn for many of you! Welcome to your brand new day!

The Trinity of Internet Selling

There are three basic forms of selling online. Multi-level marketing, e-commerce and affiliate marketing!

Multi-level marketing is where a matrix of members has to be formed beneath you in order to make money! It involves recruiting people and very often requires buying products. Many of these company's make there money of required purchases by the sales force for there own use. Some of them do not even have a tangible product. They sell to Tom who sells to Harry and Joan who sign up Megan, Phyllis, George and Juan and so on. These no product schemes are designed for the creators to make money and for everyone on down the line to fail. Which they almost always do after making enough teaser money to build there downlines to profit the top tier. Unless you are a super seller, and and enjoy constant recruiting, stay away from MLM.

E-commerce is the traditional way of selling a product or many products. It can range from a mega site like Office Depot or Amazon, to auction sales like Ebay or little niche sites that sell specialty products. The competiton is fierce and a fairly large investment of time and money is usually required to start up an e commerce site that will be successful. If you have a strong computer sales background and products to sell and some good working capitol this may be the way for you.

On this site our focus is mainly on affiliate marketing. This is where companies pay you commission for selling their products or getting eyeballs to their ads. This type of selling requires little investment but a lot of marketing education. What you are doing is competing for peoples attention and getting them to buy something. The area in which you are selling is a referred to as a niche market. For example it you have a website that is all about lizards you must assume that your readers are all about lizards, so, this would not be a place to sell cosmetics. However if your site was about skincare, cosmetics might be a good fit. There is a great ebook called Affiliate Blueprint where the basics of this form of selling are clearly defined and easy to learn. You can grab your copy here for about five bucks.

Offer Value! Gain Trust!

You have created a website, a blog, have written articles that point to your site and have joined many forums and groups to get the attention of people with a common interest! Most important of all you have traffic to your site! But the one thing missing is the reason for your being out there! Sales! Why are there no sales? Because your reason for being out there is sales when it should be service! People can sense your purpose! Just like the hardware store in town that continues to thrive even though the Big Orange Box opened up on the highway. Joe remembers the time the owner stayed late to sell him some seed because rain was due the next morning! Susan never forgot the advice she got for preventing those black spots that ruined her tomatoes the year before. The owner always had free coffee for anyone who came in just to chat! He became a valuable member of the community! The internet is no different! It is also a community. People appreciate good advice and an occasional free gift. They are reluctant to just buy something from someone they don't know! You can send out. You need to gain their trust before you try to sell them something!

Please read this book on the value of giving something away. No this book is not free but it is not my book! If it were it would be free! But it is a great value at a few bucks! Please read it! You will be glad you did! It is called Give Away Secrets!
