Slash My Search

Ran into this a few days ago....

Well...the advert goes like this.... "You can earn money by setting this.. as your homepage. You can earn even more money by using as your primary search engine.. Obviously, if you search more, the more you tend to make.....simple"

Did not want to change the advert... it more or less explains the subject..

Basically, you can either use it as your affiliate link for referring others, or as your homepage… For referring, you get paid for three levels, meaning you get extra money from everyone you refer, and another amount for each referral those people get... Offcourse, you can also earn money by using as your primary search engine, the more you search the more you make, that's about it.

So far so good….. Although it is too early to say whether it is a money spinner….. these few days have been good…..

No harm in trying it out..

Criticism and product marketing

If you're marketing a product and someone complains that the product is terrible and that he or she is not buying it.. does not refer that they hate you.

It is just that they just don't like your product.

All you got to do is to change your marketing style, or the way you market your product.. and perhaps throw in some incentives and jazz up the whole thing.. Then, try and get some fair reviews from friends, and if possible, from some members of any affiliate marketing or network marketing forums... They might be critical at first, but they could give you a better insight into the whole thing.. and the whole exercise would make a lot of difference..

Lastly, never ever take any criticism personally..

Let's put it this way, you have to take a lot of shit, although, a lot less than a car or a door to door salesman would need to.. However, a lot of people take it personally, and that's one of the biggest mistakes they could make.. they either wind up, or lose their entire momentum ...

Basically, bullshit is supposed to sell and not to be received for a marketer !

Startups and opportunity

While starting a home business or in affiliate marketing, there are times you come to the crossroads. The most important factor is not to cave in... Yes, it is tough, but most of the successful affiliate marketers of today, are those who stuck by and those who didn't give up, but who learned from their mistakes.

Now the common factor was that they were not willing to call it quits whenever they faced a stumbling block. Basically, without the strength to endure a crisis, one will not see the opportunity within. It is within the process of endurance that opportunity reveals itself.

Having strong beliefs and being able to stick with them through popular and unpopular times, is the most important characteristic while starting a home business.

Likewise, the two worst strategic mistakes any newbie can make is acting prematurely and letting an opportunity slip. You should try and evaluate each situation independently as it were unique, rather than applying formulae, theories and most of all other people's opinions...

Scoopt Words

Recently, I signed up with another one of those new ways of making money from blogs.. that they call Scoopt Words. It is good for those who are busy and never realise that their posts have value, let alone focus on marketing their content.. ScooptWords basically, is a payment facility for bloggers who want to sell content and editors who want to buy it. Scoopt Words acts as a go between bloggers and editors of publications, and will negotiate the sale of your blogging content for you. The concept is pretty simple really, ie., you blog and they sell

You add a ScooptWords button to your blog, ie., first you sign up with them. Once when you have confirmed your membership, login to the member's area and copy the HTML code for a ScooptWords button and paste it into the sidebar of your blog. The Editors, who are interested in your content, click on the ScooptWords button on your blog to buy content.

As soon as an editor has confirmed payment, they can copy, paste and print your words – and of course, pay for them. They negotiate the price on your behalf. The more visible your ScooptWords button, the better your chance of making sales. They bill the publication no sooner a sale is agreed. You get paid via PayPal once when they get paid, usually within 30 days of purchase. Bloggers receive 75% of all sales revenue. At present ScooptWords only make payment to bloggers through PayPal and in three currencies: Pounds Sterling (£), US Dollars ($) and Euros (€).

When you join ScooptWords and list a blog, you appoint them as a commercial agent for your blog until such time as you delist that blog and remove the ScooptWords button from the blog .. For more info.. Click Here.

The Truth In Ad Sales

A mimic of the original, but nonetheless funny.

Excellently made though a bit boring at times... but the characters make up for it.

A must watch for anyone in advertising, aspiring admen and marketers.
