Making Money Online With The Rich Jerk ?

Obviously, there are many ways to make money online.

There is Adsense, AdWords and many other best ways to make money, but this took the cake.

You must have gone through books and writings of Alex Mandossian, Dan Kennedy, Harvey Segal, Jason Potash Jay Abraham, Jeff Mulligan, Perry Marshall, Ralph Wilson, Robert Allen,, Willie Crawford, Jim Edwards, Joe Vitale, Ken Evoy, Lynn Terry, Mark Hendricks, Markus Allen, Marlon Sanders, Rosalind Gardner, Shelley Lowery, Stone Evans, Terry Dean, Vincent James, Willie Crawford and so and so forth but The Rich Jerk ?

I had been writing about just about anybody... but it was time I thought I gave this guy a shot

No, this guy is definitely not from the usual league, yet he promises that Internet treasure chest

Now what are these so-called easy ways to make money and fastest way to make money, that you don't know of?

It becomes even more irritating by the number of posts displayed at webmasterworld, warriorforum, digiforum or whatever forum

The Rich Jerk claims and in most cases he is right to show how to find fastest ways to make money.

In fact you are contemplating alternate business opportunities where that can you make money. And you are even thinking of dabbling to make money in real estate or make money in stocks and Forex. Anything seemed to be better than make money online from home

Now we know that affiliate marketing is a safe and time-tested strategy for making money online. But this book, took the cake, the name and the razzmatazz

Besides, this was the book that initiated many a person into this make easy money mess…..

I had to get it whatever the cause.

Now what are these new PPC strategies, ClickBank strategies or Adsense strategies strategies to everyday wealth, that we don't know of already?

Besides, I was recently reviewing some profiles of some friends involved into affiliate marketing and noted that most of them face difficulties to make extra money, despite generating the usual amount of cash from their site. (I am not excluding myself from this privileged list)

One of the reasons is that we expect to make money fast. The other reason could be the strategies applied.

Now, characters such as The Rich Jerk who come out with such publications can only make, my make money from home, matters worse.

Mainly because, to the successful affiliate, it is always how much money can you make, and to the struggling affiliate it is always how do I make money online. That equation will not change

Imagine trying to get rich quick and how to make big money in a month.

Nonetheless, I was still curious.

You dabble in his newfound strategies and seemingly they work. All of a sudden you become more curious because your how to make extra money file is beginning to receive input

This book has got much attention recently, mainly because of the number of sales it has generated in such a short time.

Throughout he is absolutely arrogant, but then who cares. His methods are popular, they seemingly work and he has a huge fan following

His ideas work, mainly because his methods are easy and practical

Yes, the strategies highlight in the book, do generate quick cash, albeit short term.

Its becoming obvious that people have bought this course not because of any secret marketing systems, but because of the basic common sense strategies that has made him The Rich Jerk

The book is especially useful for newbies and once again, I highlight the fact, that it does show how to make easy money with an affiliate program.

Additionally, some of the methods are interesting to the seasoned affiliate as well.

Mentioned below is a link should you wish to obtain more information.

Hope you Make Money Online With The Rich Jerk

Website Marketing - Learning to market your site online

Website Marketing - Would you send an enormous amount of letters costing tens of thousands to print and mail, in a direct marketing campaign, without testing their content first?

It's what many website owners do when they don't test their own website copy and content then spend thousands on web marketing campaigns to drive traffic to their websites.

What are the main reasons people don't buy online? They don't believe you.

Whatever may be the reason, it doesn't matter. You must build credibility for yourself, in your business. The sad truth is that building authority and credibility for your business is now harder than ever, especially online. And it has never been more essential.

Take a second look at your home page. It has your company name. It explains what you do. But does it explain why you can offer your extraordinary products at such an awesome price ?

Does it establish your credibility as a real business that will honor its agreements and send a quality product on time ?

Unfortunately, for 99% of the websites out there, the answer is no.

There is no attempt anywhere to address these issues. Not in advertising. Not on the home page, and not even in the information about each product.

The only place you can find a good example is in expert copywriters' work. By defining your website objective, experimenting with copy, content, persuasion, design, colour and architecture it is possible to predict what the response of your website will be.

In other words you can confidently predict how many people will do, what you want them to do Month after month. Easy? No, it takes a lot of work but it is possible.

Try few examples that should make your page into a super seller.

Keep It Simple
Focus on one product or service at a time. Don't confuse your prospect. Be super clear on your key benefit right up front, and then follow with additional benefits. Words sell better than pictures in most cases. Always be more direct, to the point

Write A Killer Headline
It's the single most important part of your sales letter. If you have not spent double the time on your headline than on the rest of the letter combined, then its high time you revised your strategy !

Sell with Sub-headings
Have at least One Sub-Headline per viewable page. Web readers scan - 90% of your visitors will not read through your copy, but will scan your headline. Your sub-heads should tell your story and intrigue your reader to read.

Trigger Key Emotions
Reinforce Emotions Your Customer is Already Feeling. You will never have truly killer copy until you understand your customers emotions about your subject area better than they themselves know. Once you have identified a few of their emotional buy triggers, then come right out and expose that emotion - build on it.

Have an Irresistible Offer
Once again, live in your customer's shoes. You can even triple your sales by tweaking your offer to include more perceived value. Throwing tons of freebies at your customer is NOT perceived value. Including something unique, something personalized, that will increase the perceived value of your product.

Review your website today and add any information you can think of to establish your business' credibility. Your accountant will thank you.

Definitely, there is more to writing great copy in website marketing tags:

Getting Out and Staying Out of Credit Card Debt

Credit card debt is a major cause of over one million bankruptcies each year. The reason is that many people get a credit card without researching and reading the fine print. By the time annual fees are added on, along with spending indiscriminately, payments are missed, which causes their balance to skyrocket.

Although we all like to place the blame on the credit cards and the credit card companies, you need to keep in mind that the real cause of your financial mess is you.

One shopping spree does not usually cause high debt. It is usually a pattern that consists of gradually increasing purchases that add up to a large debt. The great thing is that it can be very easy to get out of debt. The key is to start spending less than you make. This is a long-term solution that can help you to whittle your debt down.

Although it may sound simple, it can be very difficult if you have a problem with willpower. It is important to stick with spending less than you make or you will find yourself in exactly the same place as you were before. Overcoming your debt will take willpower and a great deal of time.

It may be difficult to stick with your debt repayment program, but keep yourself strong and you will find yourself out of debt before you know it.

It is important to learn how to get out of debt and then stay out of debt. If you can summon enough willpower and strength towards your finances and spending, then you will find yourself the winner in the game of debt. It may be easy to get into debt, but getting out of debt is much more difficult, but worth it.

One simple phrase can sum up the solution to your financial problems. If you don’t have the money to spend, then don’t spend it!

James Martells Affiliate Marketers BootCamp

Received this a few days back.... a must for all aspiring affiliate marketers..

James Martell Kicks Off First Ever Online “BootCamp” Training Via The Internet

Students Build Sites from Comfort of Their Own Home in Engaging, One Evening Per Week Sessions, For Eight Weeks

The 8-week curriculum will be delivered one evening per week for eight weeks, with each "night-school" style class dedicated to one of the eight steps outlined in Martell’s top-selling downloadable Affiliate Marketer’s Handbook

More and more families are struggling with debt – be it escalating mortgages, credit card debt, or trying to save for a child’s education or retirement. The truth is that day-to-day living has become more expensive and keeping up is a battle, and most people have all but given up their dreams of finally getting ahead.

But this just doesn’t have to be the case.

In fact, there is a legitimate, proven way to make money – whether to simply supplement your current income or to provide a full-time income for you and your family, and it’s called affiliate marketing.

And perhaps one of the Net's longest running affiliate marketers, James Martell, who has been teaching his tried-and-true moneymaking techniques to people just like you for well over seven years, is now making his infamous live BootCamp training available via the Internet.

This means anyone can take advantage of this eight-week course to ensure they achieve financial freedom once and for all.

The first-ever Affiliate Marketers BootCamp - Online "Night School" Edition will begin Thursday, September 7th, with Martell coming into your home “live” through an engaging, real-time online conference room. The 8-week curriculum will be delivered every Thursday evening for eight weeks, with each night-school style course dedicated to one of the eight steps outlined in Martell’s top-selling downloadable Affiliate Marketer’s Handbook.

Normally delivered in three consecutive days in Martell’s hometown of Surrey, BC (Canada), the BootCamp materials and live instruction have been further broken down to ensure online BootCamp attendees fully grasp each of the eight steps, and can have the time to apply these and ask Martell questions in the live question and answer sessions held at the conclusion of each evening course.

When asked about her experience at Martell’s most recent BootCamp, attendee Julia Mahler said this: “The past 3 days were truly amazing. I learned SO much, became re-motivated and re-inspired to continue my publishing business, I've lost sight of my dreams over the last couple of years - I can see them again now. Thank you!”

Martell, who, until recently, was not convinced that online classroom technology would allow him to effectively and efficiently deliver his instruction via the Internet, has earned quite a reputation as a teacher. His students fly from across the world to attend his three-day BootCamps and regularly report significant increases in their sales (and their paychecks) after jump-starting their online efforts with Martell’s eight-step methodology.

For Martell student Roman Gill, a true paid search expert, the difference can be seen in the development of his websites. “I received significant value in walking through your methodology to develop quality websites that rank high in the search engines naturally. Many things to absorb and try to implement our web strategy,” said Gill.

Martell student Laurie Watkins found Martell’s information top-shelf and his delivery to be exactly what she needed to get her online business on track and keep it there. “First class! Great presentation, excellent stage presence, (and) good use of time. Well done! Keep up the good work,” Watkins said!

And online BootCamp attendees are sure to concur, for Martell’s new online conference room will showcase Martell as he walks through the same videos he uses in the off-line BootCamp, with real-time audio and more.

Much like the original BootCamp, which started in Oct. 2005, the online BootCamp is targeted to new and experienced affiliate marketers alike, to those who already have Martell’s newly released Affiliate Marketing Handbook - "2006" (THIRD EDITION), and are looking for the extra push they need to get up and running, and to “newbies” looking to break-into this exciting and profitable career

In fact, these are the very reasons the original BootCamp was started and why it continues to boast sell out crowds.

It all began when Martell’s students asked for something more. They wanted to spend time one-on-one with the successful affiliate marketer. But the demand far exceeded anything one person could handle and so Martell set out to teach to his infamous eight-step approach to a number of people at once, all the while maintaining the personal, one-on-one experience his loyal students requested.

And the BootCamp events were a hit from the get-go.

But Martell continued to hear from students who were unable to travel the distance to his hometown or unable to take time away from family and other obligations, or who simply could not afford the trip and accommodations and therefore could not take advantage of the very offer they asked for.

So, back to the drawing board he went. And, once introduced to an online conference room that could be used to deliver his training in the same one-on-one atmosphere, while allowing people to attend from their homes (foregoing travel and expenses), he knew he had another BootCamp winner.

And, as expected, the response from students has been overwhelmingly positive, not only because of the convenience and affordable costs it allows, but because Martell’s online BootCamp packs years of his personal research, development, and experiences into eight evening sessions, making it a truly invaluable investment.

Attendees can expect Martell, who has tapped into more than 60 different industries and boats nearly 100 specialty shopping sites via the Web, to use his robust online conference room to show exactly how to:

Get And Stay On Track
Research Topics
Work with Web Publishing Software
Choose Templates
Plan Site Maps
Develop Keyword Lists
Use His Keyword Density Formula
Choose Merchants
Arrange Hosting
Submit to Search Engines
Work with Authors on Elance
Arrange Quality Inbound Links
Monitor Traffic
Manage Site(s)
Adjust to Online Change
And much more...

“Martell’s BootCamps are excellent, in depth and informative", explains BootCamp attendee Howard Hood. “Martell clarifies content in the manual and proves we all have the knowledge and abilities to succeed in affiliate marketing.”

Affiliate Networks

Affiliate Networks are the most commonly used form for promoting others affiliate programs.

Now, this is a common question I have noticed in many forums regarding which network to join and which network, pays the best or which has the best service.

Basically these questions arise only if you are the merchant and not an affiliate or publisher as they like to call it

Most affiliate networks are generally free to join. You can easily make money online by signing up for pay per lead (PPL), pay per sale (PPS), pay per action (PPA) and pay per click (PPC) network affiliate programs for marketing on your website. Sometimes affiliate marketing networks call themselves as marketing solutions provider or pay for performance network or a performance based online marketing network services company.

Affiliate marketing market in the UK according to leading affiliate solution providers (another name for an affiliate network) for 2004 was around £400-£500 million in terms of total sales. generated through the affiliate networks, excluding white label and self-administered schemes.

This represents at least double the affiliate turnover compared with 2003 and the affiliate solution providers confidently expect their own revenues to grow between 40%-75% in 2004. TradeDoubler's monthly Tracker report, which details online sales volumes and trends across Europe based on TradeDoubler's monitoring of sales made through its European network, confirms these projections of strong growth with sales volumes increased by 23% and sales values risen by 54% from February to March 2004. Compared with the same period last year sales volumes have grown by 259% and sales values are up by 328%.

Most affiliate merchants today make use of affiliate network services. If you don't have a specific online service, or product in mind then there are tons of affiliate programs you can find online in affiliate networks. Some will undoubtedly relate to your special interest.

A large network offering hundreds of programs with nearly a thousand merchants – Includes pay-per-sale, pay-per-lead, and pay-per-click programs. It has a strong pro-affiliate attitude and lots of data feeds. Highly recommended. .

Professional, UK-based affiliate network. Provides more than 200 merchants to choose from, including well known brands. was a slow starter in the industry. In the early years they were perceived as the poor relation. However, by releasing themselves from the shackles of a third party tracking software company, they have developed their own in-house tracking and have gone on to become one of the industry leaders in affiliate solution providers. have become innovators rather than followers which can be attributed to their team of specialists in software development and affiliate marketing practices. also offers affiliate programs for web sites running in UK pounds, US dollars and Euros, and has fast affiliate payment.

All said and done, before examining each network, check whether they insist on an 'exclusivity agreement', whereby if you use their services you cannot use one of their competitors {[only for merchants and not for affiliates] Although this a little distasteful, what if a merchant is happy to pay an access fee for both or all affiliate networks to access each group of affiliates as a paying customer ?

Affiliate network services are also the safest when it comes to making payments on time, conflict resolution and accurate tracking. Affiliate Networks are also great sources to find good affiliate programs thereby promoting your affiliate links to search engines and getting started as an affiliate marketer Then you can just sit back and wait for the commission checks to start rolling in.

As a closing line, examine each network, see what fits your needs and draw your own conclusions These networks give a diversification not only to affiliate marketing as such, but also allows you to access many merchant's marketing affiliate programs through their affiliate networks.

Text Link Ads

Text Link Ads Inc, is an online marketing firm based at Cincinnati, Ohio.

Text Link Ads buys and sells online advertisements that are designed to drive targeted traffic and raise link popularity. They service a wide range of clients from Fortune 500 businesses to individual website owners.

Patrick Gavin, the current President of Text Link Ads, founded Text Link Ads in 2003. He previously did pay per click management and SEO for clients of his business

Text Link Ads are unique because they are simple, direct, HTML links.

You can make money by selling Ad Space for Text Link Ads, by setting up a banner or text link on your website. You receive 50% of the sale price for each text link ad sold off your website through their system and any referred traffic that results in a new paid client or new publisher will earn you $25.00.

Alternately, you can use Text Link Ads as static links that can help your natural (organic) search engine rankings, as Text Link Ads have an exhaustive inventory of quality niches that can send targeted traffic to your website. This allows them to provide an outstanding approach to advertising because it affordably allows you to tap into the flow of traffic from large sites drawing your target audience.

Text Link Ads are priced at a flat rate per month per link. You prepay for a 30 day run of your ad. Your ad will never be turned off if it gets too many impressions or clicks. Their pricing algorithm is based on a website’s: traffic, theme, ad position, and link popularity when setting the flat ad rate per month. Hence, you don't have to ever worry about cost per click or CPM rates.

You can also control the links that will appear on your site, because Text Link Ads can be run along any ad system as it is not a contextually served product.

Unfortunately, you must have a dedicated hosting account to publish your Blogger blog, as their script will not work.

If you are considering a text link campaign targeted at increasing backlinks rather than just click-throughs, you may be wise to choose Text Link Ads.

If you already use them, you know this by now. If not, you're missing out on something easy. Give them a try !

Affiliate Scrawl - Last Month

The latest Affiliate Scrawl on happenings in the affiliate marketing scene over the last month..

Do you have to have a different Web site for each affiliate relationship?
[Shawn Collins]

There was a time in the early days of affiliate marketing when some affiliate programs demanded exclusivity if you wanted to be in their affiliate program.

You had to exclude all other competing companies in their category if you wanted to run their banners. Over times, the affiliates realized the real estate on their site was a bargaining chip and they rejected the calls for exclusivity. In some cases, affiliates would accept the requirement on the condition that they were paid some extra points for the right to be exclusive.

    Ad tracking services are used to track the progress of an advertising campaign.

    It is one of the most powerful tools to keep track of the progress of your ad campaigns. The service tracks an ad during the entire duration of the campaign process. Continuing an ad campaign without knowing the response it generates would be a futile exercise.

    This service tracks your entire campaign in a systematic way. It keeps a track of the number of emails opened and links clicked on by the audience. Measuring the success rate of your email campaign tells the amount of mails being read. This gives you an indication whether your email campaign is a success or a failure.

    The service also keeps track of the number of person who responded to your ad. This will give you the figure of the number of people who read and respond to your ad. You can then measure the success rate of your campaign and see if it is viable to your business or not.

    The software tracks and tells you which text attracted the maximum number of responses. You can then design your next campaign taking this factor into consideration. Next time you will know what type of ad generates responses and then you can work accordingly.

    AdtrackzAnalyzer can Track, Edit and Manage hundreds of your promotional campaigns with ease! It tells you how many people come to your website from each traffic source so you can know which ad campaigns actually work. In addition, it also tracks sales, subscriptions, downloads, etc. from each of your traffic sources and tracks sales and actions on remote, affiliate websites. It can calculate cost per click, cost per sale, and cost per action for each one of your traffic sources so you can see if the return on your investment is worth it. In short, it tracks which keyword generates the sale in google adwords, overture, or any major ppc engine and analyzes and logs your click to sale and click to action conversion ratios! Basically, AdtrackzAnalyzer offers user-friendly website split-testing, URL shortening, affiliate link cloaking and a handy URL rotator makes this program stand in a league of its own among professional solutions for ad tracking.

    Ad trackers can immensely benefit your business. If you find that a particular ad is not working out as desired, you can always withdraw it. You can see what changes need to be made. In your fresh campaign if you incorporate these changes then you will definitely gain the desired results.

    Another one of the better ones is Adminder. It reveals on a step-by-step basis, strategies on how to double your business and profits each month. Basically, it gives you a detailed version on your site visitors and where they come from so that you can make a better analysis. It costs, if I remember well about $49.

    Internet Home Business And EQ Competency

    Internet Home Business is not something new nowadays.. most work-at-home moms practise it, students in college utilise it for extra income, it keeps retirees busy and some working people use it as a part-time income source.

    Few people have also made it a full time occupation and, have succeeded as well..

    I am also in this jig, and reckon one of the things you ought to know before starting a home business is how to avoid the setbacks

    One of the important things after you have identified your home based Internet business, is that you have to sit down and analyze certain factors, i.e., your skills, the areas you are good at etc.,

    Few of the important factors required prior to starting on a home-based business venture are mentioned below.

    This is something most of us overlook - I used to, and still am a mess when it comes to organising and time management. This is mainly because of the lack of discipline that slowly filters into home businesses. No wonder they call it working in your pajamas !

    So it would help if you initially do a bit of time management and eliminate some of the things that aren't important to you. In short, readjust your priorities. What's eating up your time that you could eliminate or if possible, delegate to someone else?

    Work on your resilience, an important factor.. which is widely recognised as EQ or Emotional Quotient competency. This pertains to being able to bounce back from failures, loss, rejections and adversity. It will keep you from slowing down and wasting precious energy when you hit an obstacle or challenge.

    The EQ competency will help you maintain a sense of balance. Try not to be a perfectionist; as if you constantly dwell on the things that don't go exactly as planned, you'll get into a negative mindset. Working to stay positive and congratulating yourself occasionally is extremely necessary.

    Focus on what goes right and not what goes wrong -We normally overlook the many things that went well during a given day, and give importance to that one thing that went wrong. So just switch this around and pass it on and you will feel more relaxed.

    Every time somebody tells you something that didn't go well, counter with something that went well. This will help you build your self-esteem and resilience, and will positively affect those around you.

    Find a way to combine self-nurturing and support with a great home business that would enable you to achieve that financial flexibility.

    Surround yourself with as many positive situations as you can. If someone's really negative, that it's best to stay away from him or her.

    Even while shopping, try finding a store where the clerks are smiling and helpful. There are many. Find the office supply store where they're really glad to have your business, and pay attention to you when you're shopping.

    Most of the successful Internet businesses ventures have faced tremendous setbacks
    and they have comeback only stronger. So don't give up... the initial stages are a bit hard.. Wishing you the best in your home business.

    Internet Home Businesses

    Internet Home Business needs commitment.

    Home business might seems easy, but actually starting a business from your home takes courage, determination and persistence

    But first ... the most important factor in starting a home business is YOU! In order to be successful, your home business has to fit your talents and interests. The second important thing is that starting a home business takes time, an investment of money, and lots of online aaffiliate marketing to get it going.

    Besides, if you want to succeed as an Internet affiliate marketer, you will have to distinguish yourself from the competition You should know your target audience and know your competition even better.

    But do not let self-doubt stop you from accomplishing your goals. Every successful Internet aaffiliate marketer gives his or her business the very best effort possible. Hard work and determination will make your home-based business a success and provide you with a steady stream of income.

    Moreover do not treat it as a part-time business

    Here are some questions to consider when you are starting a home business.

      • Is Starting a Home Business for You ?
      • Do you have the discipline to work your business every day ?
      • Are you able to motivate yourself and work without supervision ?
      • Can you handle not having a predictable, regular income ?
      • Are you able to learn new things to grow with your home business ?
      • Are you willing to market your work from home business ?
      • Read some high quality marketing books to get an idea of what is involved.
      • Are you optimistic and willing to take risks ?
      • Do you have time and money to invest to get your home business going ?
      • Is there a place in your home that can be an uninterrupted work space ?

      At the beginning, Internet home business can seem really overwhelming. It offers you unlimited income potential and the opportunity to be your own boss. You invest, take the risks and work hard to built it into a profitable and thriving enterprise.

      But here are some points to consider once you have decided to take the plunge.

      • Start-up Costs;
      • To check and identify whether there is a market for your products or services?
      • Time factor - how much preparation would be required to get the home business up and running and how much time can YOU devote to your business?
      • The Income factor and The time it would take to breakeven.
      • Whether you have the needed skills.
      • Legal side - whether the business opportunity you have identified is legitimate?

      Now get the below points sorted prior to starting a home business..

      Get a working environment that you can call your own, free from distractions for your scheduled time. Get a comfortable chair and a well-organized desk. Try and obtain a broadband connection. Your time is valuable and a broadband connection can speed up things.

      Develop a schedule that works both for you and your family and your home business. Do not let it become the center of everything – Allocate time for all your activities and try not to focus or work during these times. As one of the reasons to work from home is to spend more time with your family, don’t become glued to the desk, as it will not make any difference to you working from the office

      Also allocate time for outdoor activities and social visits, friends and to meet people

      Try not to be disturbed by others during the times allocated for the home business. This should be made aware to others at home as well.

      Try selecting a product (i.e., if you plan to sell products online) that you are interested about, rather than try and sell something that circumstances force you to. There has to be some passion, interest or hobby otherwise you tend to become disinterested very fast.

      If you are not aware of a product or home business, try and obtain some good guide or if possible try and download any free resource on that subject.

      Remember a work at home job is distinct from a home business. A work at home job offers you the opportunity to receive a regular salary and to do one specific task, and an employer pays you. Also note that a work at home job also offers more security and less risk than a home business.

      So it is important that you assess your expected monthly income and convert your time into blocks of pay-per-hour situations. You would then get a correct idea of time wasted as well as an idea on the capital required vis-a- vis planning or allocating time.

      Also try and maintain the same administrative policies, as you would do in a regular office, be it accounting, keeping books or even filing of tax claims. It would also help if you have a separate bank account.

      Try and register with an online payment company that would suit your needs. Also check whether they would have any problems regarding transfer of payments to your country (if you are based abroad)

      Lastly, always have a backup of your activities and ensure that your computer is protected at all times. Have an UPS as well as other data protectors and virus cleaners

      Try not to use free e-mail accounts. Use them only as a backup source. Once you get your own domain you can have an associated email account. This would assist in the promotion of your work from home internet business

      More info is available at the below links as well.. give them a check, something might interest you..

      It's worth a check.. for those seeking part time work ..

      Coming back to home business.. Basically try and derive satisfaction out of it. If you are doing just because others are doing it, then treat it is better to treat it as a part-time business.

      Only if you enjoy it you can make it a sustainable long-term Internet home business.

      Getting a Good Mortgage Lead on the Internet

      Sometimes, mortgage brokers often fall into prey on mortgage leads that could only waste their time, effort and money in trying to work it out. Some mortgage leads could be filled with data that is inaccurate, incomplete and not completely true. Some leads could not also be new or fresh and could have been handed out already to other mortgage brokers.

      So, how do you figure out when to take a bite on an internet mortgage lead without any fear that you are wasting your time and effort working on it? Here are some guidelines to lessen your chances on not falling into any difficult or worthless mortgage lead:

      The initial step is to check if the mortgage lead is fresh. When you say "fresh", the mortgage lead is supposed to be with you in real time, meaning instantly or within 48 hours from user request. Within the time, you receive it, is also best to act upon it while the user is interested. Oftentimes, clients become disinterested when the difference from the time they gave their interest and the time you respond increases.

      Second is to check if the mortgage lead is accurate. A mortgage lead should contain all of the information below:

      - the name of the applicant
      - the co-applicant's name
      - street address
      - city
      - state
      - Zip code
      - E-mail address
      - Work phone
      - Home phone
      - Type of house
      - Current value
      - Purchase price
      - Year purchased
      - First mortgage balance
      - Interest rate
      - Type of Loan: Fixed or Adjustable
      - Second Mortgage Balance
      - Second Interest Rate
      - Type of Second Loan: Fixed or Adjustable
      - Monthly Payment on Second Mortgage
      - Behind on Payments
      - Number of Late Payments
      - Credit Rating
      - Employer
      - Years There
      - Income
      - Monthly Debt
      - Loan Type
      - Ln Amount/Cashout Desired
      - Call time
      - Comments and Questions

      Users sometimes send in inaccurate information about themselves. Some software are incorporated by mortgage lead generating companies to reduce erroneous data such as those which check area codes of the telephone numbers supplied by clients against the state they are calling from or those that check their employment companies from the data they enter. Although this software may exist, inaccuracy still poses some problems.

      An indirect solution to this is to check on the mortgage lead generation companies and evaluate among them who has employed some guidelines in order to address inaccuracy. There are some pages in the Internet dedicated to this undertaking. Check out various mortgage lead websites and the reviews made about them. MortgageLeadGuide.Com offers a comparison and review of various Internet mortgage lead generation companies.

      In their review, they've listed the various mortgage lead companies such as LeadBull.Com, Eleadz.Com, mLeads.Com, and others. Next to each company name are their leading prices for exclusive leads, non exclusive leads and custom filters. The table also contains brief information about the companies and how they work. And, links to user reviews on the different mortgage lead generating companies are also provided.

      The third and final step is to check if the mortgage lead is true. The best way to avoid bogus mortgage leads is to stay away from those that come from websites that offer incentives to clients. This incentives come in the form of points for discounts on purchases or are even given in the form of money for clients who fill out forms for a mortgage. You have to keep in mind that clients who really want a mortgage would not fall into this but rather seek out the company who could do the real work for them.

      Following these steps can assure you that you will not fall into following worthless leads. But, you should also take note what other experienced brokers who have worked with internet mortgage lead generating companies recommend that expectations should not be high in closing a mortgage lead from the Internet. Their statistics for closing such deals is 8 to 14%. Also expect accuracy of data to always fall to 80%. And, if you are able to close 8% of these Internet mortgage leads, then you can consider yourself to be doing very well.

      The Affiliate Classroom
      - Anik Singal has developed his own aaffiliate system that helped him earn well over $10,000 in just 60 days.

      This guy talks smooth... and he claims to have hit big in the affiliate scene. You don't need to get carried away by his talk or articles, but there is logic in his gab.

      Now this guy happens to be an Asian. So I thought like the typical asian mentality that I might be able to identify with him.

      On second thoughts, I decided to market his project. You know why...the guy is just in his bare twenties and he is swinging! Not only that, he has a medical degree behind him. Walking on Ken Evoy footsteps ???

      With due respect, I brought up the Asian mentality, mainly to highlight a single fact.

      I was trying to get some reciprocal linking to my site with very little success. It was then I ran accross Mr. Singhal's article....."One of the other uncommon methods to get linking from high ranked sites is to bribe the sites' webmasters"... Although I laughed it off at the moment, I tried aplying his theory with a few webmasters. Believe me, the feedback your receive is incredible. As the old adage goes.. Money talks..

      It was then I realised, only an Asian could have thought about it. Only an Asian could have known the theory - without grease, the wheels won't churn !!

      You can get a FREE COPY of Affiliate Classroom Magazine by clicking here.

      This magazine is not the usual scrawl, but is packed with useful articles about online aaffiliate marketing. It is aimed at the beginner and intermediate level affiliate, although there is still plenty of info for the seasoned affiliate.

      There are more such articles written by him. Not surprising, he also has an interesting Newsletter.

      Affiliate Classroom also has a great 2 tier residual affiliate program that you can join. Anik is now looking for a few students to train one step at a time for just $1. For more information on it, click here

      As they say, if your mind is empty, it is ready for anything and it is open to everything. Likewise, in the beginner's mind there are many possibilities but in the expert's mind there are few.

      So don't be afraid to try out anything - Do yourself a favor and drop by Affiliate Classroom
