Why I Chose To Join The Work At Home Industry

There was someone I used to work with who, well aware of their tendency to look at the negative side of things, used to constantly tell themselves to "think more positively".

This was said with such a feeling of desperation that I just knew that not only would they NOT think positively, they would probably go even further into negative thinking. The mere fact that they kept pushing themselves to "think positively" was a sign that this would ultimately be counterproductive.

So many of us have interpreted the desire to be positive thinkers in a very narrow and ultimately ineffective way. The push to be positive often results in ignoring our true feelings. Instead of recognizing that we don't always feel positive and learning how to convert and turn round our feelings, it so often ends up with us denying them altogether.

Te Law of Attraction, as defined by Abraham Hicks states that "you attract to yourself what you give your attention and energy to, whether wanted or unwanted".

One reason why positive thinking doesn't work is that our focus is in the wrong place. So we say "I don't want to be ill" and believe that this thought will prevent us from being ill. So where is our focus? On being ill! Because the Universe doesn't recognize "not" or "don't". How many times have you told yourself NOT to forget something and then what happens? Oops you've forgotten it!

Another reason why positive thinking doesn't work is that we often veil our negative feelings with a positive surface. So we say "I want a loving relationship". Sounds good right? Except that underneath there is the hidden message that having a loving relationship wouldn't even be an issue - unless you'd been in one or a series of not so loving relationships.

So it's the hidden message and negative feeling around it, that is still coming through. Ultimately, you're still pushing against something and it's still counterproductive. You're likely to attract more unloving relationships, even though you THINK you've stated otherwise.

How can you begin to reverse this? Rather than focusing on your thoughts, focus on your feelings about a given situation or what you would like the situation to be. Start to visualise and sense what you truly desire. Focus on ramping up good, positive, energetic feelings about what you desire, rather than the thought.

Practically you can do this by building a "creation box" of pictures, ideas, notes, to stimulate your imagination of how you'd like things to be. Appreciating lifes abundance in what you already have by keeping an appreciation journal, feeling and acting like the prosperous person you actually are and channelling your good feelings into what you desire.

In fact, instead of being a positive thinker, aim to become a positive feeler - it's much more visceral and real. Live your life as though you already have what you desire and you'll make way for it to come to you.

Therefore you will not be invisible and you wont disappear in the crowd.Recreating products and concepts is a vital business skill I would go as far as saying it will keep you ahead of the game. Most big companies hire developers to improve on their products and service. So it is no different for the small business person.

3. A way of developing a niche is to sell to people you are familiar with eg. You could be a ex chef selling Automatic self lighting ovens which cleaned itself every night.

Do you get it, if you are familiar with a certain business you can cater for it like no other company.

Also you can concentrate on a smaller part of the market and become a specialist in that field. Like concentrating on helping diabetic people losing weight, instead of the whole weight loss market.

Just imagine for one moment that you were the only one selling automatic self cleaning cookers to the catering trade. You would corner the that market and make a fortune.

4. The Japanese are great at taking other's ideas and improving on them and they are not doing to bad are they? Great inventors like Henry Ford and Edison have created great inventions and others have taken them to another level.

Easy Ways to Boost Affiliate Income

1) Collect visitor email addresses by providing free reports.

Offer a free report to your visitor. This report should provide helpful and valuable information. This will enable you to collect your visitors email address and follow up with them. Use an autoresponder to automate this work for you.

2) Publish own newsletter

Publishing your own ezine and building up your subscriber base. Most of the successful Marketing Gurus have a large subscriber base. The reason is simple, "The Gold Is In The List".

3) Write own endorsement or review the product you're promoting.

A heartfelt honest testimonial is hands down the best way to get a prospect to buy. Your prospect wants to know how this product has ben helping you. This will help them to make the decision to buy.

4) Use web site 404 (Error) page.

Even though we try to build a perfect web site, sometimes something may be missing without our being aware of it. That's why the software may still have bugs even after being tested a few times. Check with your web hosting company to see if you can customise the error page. In my case, I use my error page to promote some affiliate product's.

5) Fully utilize thank you page.

After the visitor opts in to your mailing list, redirect them to a thank you page where you can recommend your affiliate product.

6) Track your ad and advertising.

You have to track your ad copy and advertising campaigns. This will enable you to know the conversion rate and then your ROI (Return On Investment). Some of the tracking tools you can use are Adminder and Clickalyzer

7) Let your affiliate program presell for you

Some of the affiliate programs have prepared valuable reports, newsletters, or courses to help you to presell.

What you need to do is try to get your visitors to opt in to these mailing lists and let their information do the presell work for you.

8) Give bonuses when someone buys from you

Everyone on the web is selling almost the same products as you. By offering additional bonuses like software, ebooks or information, your prospect may feel that the added value to your product tips the scale in your favor over the same product being offered by the others.

This does make you different from the others and puts you in "A Unique Selling Position".

Money Online Through eBay

There can be many different ways to make money online through eBay. There is the typically thought of method of selling your own things and then there is the option to be an affiliate and to market other people's things in order to earn a commission.

With this way you basically sell other people's items by sending customers to their sales. When your customers buy their products they pay you. Although there are considered to be differences between affiliates and sales people however both of these get the same result and have the same overall goal of selling items.

There is also the option of being an affiliate and helping to send internet buyers and traffic to someone for a service as well as items. Since this has become popular there are a number of online companies that will pay you to send prospective customers for their memberships.

This applies to eBay because if you are sending customers to eBay and they are signing up for the service then you can be compensated. Basically eBay offers anything that you can think of as a product to sell. This can include baby items, toys, clothes, bedding, computer gear, gaming items and gaming gear, computers, televisions and even automobiles to name a few.

Then there are those sellers who are using eBay as a cheap way to set up an online store and have exposure to millions of shoppers without having to advertise. Basically eBay will advertise your goods for a small fee while you will make money from selling your goods.

These people make money by buying and selling items on eBay and making a profit. There is also a fee after selling for the item on top of the listing fee that you have already paid. The listing fee can vary greatly depending on the number of pictures, how you want the text and other information.

By being an eBay affiliate and sending buyers to eBay you can earn about 50-75% of these fees. There are many people who actually do this as a full time income. You too can do this by sending buyers to specific auctions and try to make a purchase. Basically to earn this money you do not have to do anything but advertise. Those who have the best results are those who are able to do things like own their own webpage. Basically your web page would be sharing information about items and sales on eBay.

There are a number of programs and resources available for you to learn how to do these websites. Being able to be an eBay affiliate is one of those things are the simplest things available to all.


Money Is In The List

Most working online would have heard the saying that "the money is in the list". That is absolutely a true fact. If you can build a list of hundreds or even thousands in a short period of time, then you will be able to market different products to that list. In order to build a list you need to have a system that works. That does not mean that you have to spend a lot of money to start that system. Actually, you can build your list with some elbow grease, some time and very little money, if any at all.

The most important thing you must have is a high quality item or important information that you can give away to your subscribers. You may have a report or information that will help others accomplish their goals.

There are many places on the internet that you can obtain free information to give away. If you simply do a Google search for PLR products, you will find a large selection of websites you may go to get quality reports and information. You must then have a capture page set up, with an autoresponder so that people can sign up for your free report or information, and in turn they will be entered into you autoresponder.

There are several autoresponders available on the internet that will allow you to have a 30 day free trial, so that you may try them out for a month to see if they are a good fit for you. I have also found websites that allow you to have a limited number of free autoresponders. Along with the free autoresponders, there are several websites that allow you to generate free capture pages.

Once you have your autoresponder and capture page set up, you are ready to start advertising your page. There are so many ways today to advertise for free on the internet, that it is almost silly to spend money on advertising. Some free advertising methods that I have used are traffic exchanges, credit safelists, listbuilders, and text ad exchanges which allow you to place solo ads, text ads, banner ads, headline ads and login ads, all 100% free.

If you implement these methods, you will build a large list in no times at all. You will build a relationship with the people on your list, and as long as you provide them with helpful information, they will also be happy to look at your offers of affiliate products or information products that you may have for sale.

Passive and Residual Income Explain

Earning recurring residual or passive income is becoming one of the best ways to receive money on a regular basis. It always has been a great way to leverage work hours but even more so now with the financial institutions in such turmoil.

Let us begin by explaining what a passive or residual income is in internet terms.

It is income you work once to get and it keeps coming in on it's own without you having to do anything else.
Of course you have to work to start it, and you have to continue to work to make it grow, but once you get it, it just keeps coming in on its own.

A great example of this is where you have a membership site charging a fee of say $10 per month to access it. If you have say 100 members you will receive $1000 per month from the site. Now you would still get $1000 per month regardless if you worked the following month or not, assuming that 100 members still subscribed that is.

So you can see the power of the residual or passive income, sure you have to set it all up to run but once it is running then it generates revenue for you over and over again.

Who doesn't love that?

So, no matter what you call it... Residual income, passive income, or recurring income, you need to find something that you can use to create it.

It will allow you to make money and still have time to do the things you want to do, instead of the things you have to do!
