If you are just getting started online you will have to be very careful in anything that you would like to do online in order to make money online. With this being the issue because many have been scammed the have decide to look for best online business models that will really give them money and they will have development as far as online business is concerned. If you are among this group of those that are looking for the right business models then you are finally at the right place as I will be sharing the best business models that have worked for me.
You might have head of many business models on online mean that you can use to make money and some of you have joined these but you have not received what you had been promised on these sites. These have been an ongoing trend for you that you are being ripped of all your hard earned cash what making any progress. There are many reasons that have made many people fall for these scams but the major ones being our desire to make quick money online. This is has been issued by all that are selling these scams online because they know there are many out there that are looking for way to make quick money online. There will also never be an end to scams that are there online unless we change our mind set.
After explaining this let me now introduce to you the best business models that we have online today and that I have texted and have worked for me.
Affiliate marketing: this is the major business model that you will encounter when it comes to online money making. You might be asking that what this is. This is where by you will be standing in as a middle man on many products. Since there are many sites that are selling different products online, sites like amazon.com, ebay.com, Walmart.com etc. On these sites you will have to join their affiliate programs after which you will be given the affiliate link that you will place on the site. After which all those that will be taken to these sites via your affiliate links you will be entitled to the commission on all these sales. With this you will be able to make commission on all products that you are affiliated with and are promoting on your blog.
Making and selling your own products: you will now have the opportunity to make your own product that you will be selling online. There are many formats of products that you can sell online and the major ones are Videos, EBooks and Audio files. You will have these on your site and they will download these after payment has been done. Using this you will be keeping the all amount after you have sold all these products. The difference being that you with affiliate marketing you are making a commission.
Apart from us using any money making means you will also have to get traffic to these traffic online then will you have buyers or action takers on your site. A site without traffic is like a shop without customers. For ways on which you can bring more traffic to your blog you will have to read the traffic generation article that I have shared with you.
Tracking your conversion if you are using the paid traffic method is really necessary. This does not mean that you cannot follow up on the free traffic method but you will definitely have to follow up on the free methods also so that you can know where the traffic is coming from. It has most of the times been emphasized on the paid traffic method because there is a cost attached to this traffic medium. If you are tracking you will have the best details that will help you to tell if that traffic method is really paying or are you getting any return with that traffic method.
After understanding all this you will now be looking for the tracking tools that will be able to do this work for you. As always being the case there are many tools that you will hear and have heard about with regard to tracking traffic conversions. However before you start using any of these tool you will have to look at these traffic methods in details and see if they have all the features that you are looking for and are suitable for what you want to track. While making this great decision there are some issues that you will have to take into consideration that will help you with getting the perfect tool as per your requirement.
Should be online tool that you just have to login and set up everything that is it. This will save you time but not having to worry if the tool is working or it is not working and managing all the maintenance of the tool. It will also help for all those that are not good at programming but have a little knowledge when it comes to doing that. Also all tools that are of this type are all being managed and maintained by experts that are good at that which mean you will not have any problem that theirs site is not working for a month.
Easy to use interface will make it very easy also for all those that are just starting at using these tools. If you are looking at something that has a very complicated interface this will take much of your time instead it will be better that you looking for something that will offer something easy for you.
Has been there for long period of time as conversion tracking tool. There are some tools that are just up today and tomorrow they are not there and without any notice to all those that were using those tools these are not the right tools to use. If you are among those that were using this you will not even get the data that you had on this site. This will be a great loss as you will not have ant past details that you can refer to. So picking the tools that have been in business for a long time will really avoid all this for you and ensure a smooth ride.
After getting all these in in order I will recommend some of the tools are having these features that you can use for your conversion tracking. Some are paid tools while some are free tools but still do the work. Depending on your budget you will have to see which will do, paid tools have more features compared to the free ones. The top tools that are used for this are prosper 202.

Branding is something that is really important in any business that you will find yourself doing. That has been there for a long period of time and a means of marketing. For you to be able to stand out you will have to do some branding for all your business so that many can differentiate from others. We have seen this with many big companies in different fields like Television, Construction, Hotel, transportation. All these have branded themselves in one way or another.
This can be in many ways that you will be branding yourselves but this will all depend on the colors that you will pick for the company that you are running. Apart from the colors there also has to be the design that will go with these colors. After you have arranged all these in order you will then have to get them printed on displayed on all many different media and material platforms like Banners and billboards.
Now that you will be displaying this on all these different mediums I will be sharing with you on how you can display this on the email. It will have to be on all email that you will be sending out as a signature at the bottom so that all those that are reading the email can also get the information with regard to your company. There more email that will be going out will also allow more distribution of your company brand and awareness to all that will be reading the emails. For all this to happen, you will have to get some of the tools that will basically come up with the best tools so that you can make the email signature that will pop out to all that you will be reading these emails that you send out.
You might have come across many tools that you can use to make an email signature that are available online. Apart from these tools you are also able to design this email signature using the email software that you are using that is both hosted and free one. Free email tools that you can use are tools like Hotmail, Gmail, Rediffmail, Aol, etc and the major one the we use the for the hosted email address are Microsoft Outlook Express.
Finally coming to the end of this without taking a lot of your time allows me to introduce to you a tool that you will use for making a perfect and active email signature. Why I am saying this perfect it all because of the features that this online tool has that you will not get anywhere else that easily. The tools is called twisted.com with this tool you will make a perfect email signature that will allow you to put all the links directing the traffic to your social profiles like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. All these links are clickable links that will direct all those that click to respective social profiles.
Thank you so much for taking to your time to get more information about branding.
When I was just starting in internet marketing I stared with one blog. That blog had enough content to make anyone that came to that blog stay there for a long time. It is not that there was a lot of content only but the content was also very engaging to the extent that those that visited for the very first time had to keep on coming back as many times as they possibly could do so. Now apart from this site having all these better features there was something that was really missing that needed to be done? It was problem that had started to affect the traffic that was coming to this blog. The major problem here was what I want us to look at in this article and that is blog or website speed. It is something that we most of the times overlook and never care about apart from the content to the site that we will have to add. Due to our never knowing most of us have fallen victims to this when you look at our sites and blog have problem like:
1. They are very slow when opening. When you type the url in any browser instead of opening fast like the other site do they take a lot of time. Which mean you will have to wait for the site to open so that you can get the information for anything that you were looking for. This is also the same even if you search for that site in any search engine and you click on the link it will take a long time to open.
2. Apart from just opening after the site is open it will also take a long time to upload all the content that come with that site. The major issue has been on images and videos that are listed on that site. Your waiting time will be very long if you want to see these images. Most of the times for text it has been really easy as that is not too heavy to upload so you will see the text faster than you can see the images and videos even though they are hosted on the same site. Till here most of you will agree with me when it comes to videos and pictures that you watch online from different blogs and sites.
3. Another issue that you will face will be with some links on the site that are not working. When you click on those links you will never be taken anywhere they are basically dead. And because we are here looking for information we will not have any time to contact the owner like we do in shop if the owner is not there we will definitely call the number that is displayed on the shop and this is for loyal customers only. Now that there is now where to go all we will do is look for another site that will offer what we are looking for. Meaning this will be a great loss to the site owner if he was selling anything
I have decided to share this not because I am not the only one that is facing this but because there are many out there also facing this. Some you started very well with your sites having a lot of traffic but as time went by you keep on losing traffic to your blogs or sites day by day. No matter how much content you have added you are still losing traffic. I can assure you it is all because you did not get some time to check the speed of your site despite adding a lot of good content. It might be because you are not a tech guy and you have not found someone to do this for you.
Understanding that you not a tech guy and being on a budget I will recommend a tool that will check all this for you for free and that is GTmetrix.com. This will measure the upload speed of you site and if there anything wrong they will also offer recommendations. I am not saying that is the only tool but this is the one that I have been using for long time and I have found it to be too reliable.
Get started today and test the speed of you blog or website at www.gtmetrix.com.
Any business that you will be doing being online or offline you will have to spread the news about it in any way or another. On most of the offline business we have managed to have this done by speaking to all those that are close to us or in short those that we socialize with. By socializing with others about our business this has really proved to be very effective. Through doing this we have managed to get many people to our business and has resulted into cheap publicity. Since you are looking at a profit in any business that you start this has really proved too successful by saving us a lot on the advertising cost. Due to this great successful and introduction of technology socializing has extended to online mediums where we also get to social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. You can also use these networks to socialize online like we do on the offline.

Should have a better look on your site not something that will be like adding more text or graphical hence making you site look dirty. This might make some not to go on with your site details.

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to have a look at this article. When I started affiliate marketing after setting up the site one thing that was remaining that had to give me head ache was how I will get traffic to this site? After looking online for the methods that will be able to bring more traffic to my site I ended up on many paid methods. But as you know I was just starting and on shoestring budget so wanted something that will be for free but still works. With the burning desire and passion to see this coming to pass I kept on looking for something free traffic method.
After looking all that long I finally managed to get to some of the free methods that really did the work. It might a long time since got started in using these methods are some I am not using them today but I will be sharing with you only those that are still working even today.
Forum marketing – On this method you will have to joining forums that are of your niche. For example if your niche is “Cars” you will have to look for all forums that are about cars. After getting these forums and before you even join you will look at those forums and check to make sure that they are active forums. If they are active this will also give you guarantee that you will have traffic coming to your site from these forums. You will get the forums from online by searching search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. The search terms that you will have to use to get these results will be like “keyword” or Key phrase”+ Forums. Also you can get to site that are forums directories meaning sites that list all online forums that are active online in many different niches. On these sites you can search for the forums that are in your niche on interest. After joining all these forums you will have to become an active contributor on all these forums by answering questions that will be posted by others and you have answers for them. Now that you already have you signature which is a link to your blog people click on that link after reading your replies so that they can get to know more about you.
Article marketing – being there for a very long time and used by many it has been one of the most effective because it always adds content online. With this method you will have to write articles that are related to your niche like “Cars” and posting them on many article directories. When posting you will also be adding a link to your site, hence giving your site an extra link and more traffic from those that will read this article and click on that link.
Blog Comment –if you have a blog you will also be looking at some people that have blogs in the same niche like yours. There are many reasons why you will be looking for all these blogs one of the major ones being to have a look at what they are doing. When you get a feel of someone these blogs that are in your niche it will give you the courage to do something to your blog so that It can be better. In the cause of doing this will have to comment on these blogs with regard to the article that are there. When so doing you will also are adding a link to your blog on all these comments. This will result into all those that read you comment and would like to know you they will click on the link to your blog hence giving you more traffic.
Keywords that will always do very well online are these that are have the best search volume meaning High search volume but also low competition when we look at them on the search engine. They are profitable and are like gold those that get these keywords are able to make a lot of money. They are the keywords that are not easily shared like gold is not easily shared. They are guarded like the way Coca-Cola guards that formula for Coca-Cola.
Because of the value of these keywords many are looking for them as they are also looking for the way to get money. The question will be “what are the features of these keywords?” and “How can I get these keywords?”. I will share all these details for these entire two questions that I believe will be of great help to you.
What are the features for the best keywords? There are many things that will be said but the features for the best keywords are :
They will have to be long tail keywords: that is keywords that have many words in them. These will be very easy to rank and they are all targeted all those that are searching for keyword of this nature are really ready to buy.
High search volume: apart from them being long tail they should also have a high search volume of people that are searching for that keyword online. This will guarantee that we will have more traffic after building a site or blog on this keyword.
Low number of competing sites: if you search for this keyword on any search engine it should have a low number of sites that will be coming up offering in formation with regard to the keyword.
High cost per click value: this will be very helpful for those that will be building an AdSense site in relation to the keyword that we will get. By so doing will have a lot of revenue generated for the entire click that we are getting to the site.
The second question being, how can I get these keywords? I will share with you the two tools that I have used to mine these keywords. That is the keyword snatcher and google keyword planner tool. You might have heard about some other tools but I will be sharing what I am using and I am good at. First step will be to open that keyword snatcher tool and enter ant root keyword like “cure for “. After entering this term on the keyword tool we will select all the search engine that it will scrap the keyword from and select the more than three keyword. It will run and give us all keyword as per settings that we have selected. The list will be very long as it will be taking all keywords from all selected search engines. We will then plug all the keyword into the google keyword planner so that we can filter out all the keywords that do not have the features as explained above.
Thank you so much for your time hope you have learned something from here should you have any questions please feel free to use the comment section below.
After having a blog of your own you will also be looking at ways that you will be able to monetize the traffic that you generate from that blog. There are many ways that you can monetize the traffic that you get to your blog all depends on what will really suit you. It is also better that you start monetizing your blog after getting traffic that is some days from that day that you started the blog not from the very first day as that will really effect the progress of your blog as many will think you are just there for money and not to offer information.
That being said there are many way through which you can monetize your blog. But I will show three major ways of blog monetization.
Adsense: here you will be monetizing your blog by offering advertising space to google so that they can display their ads on your blog. This will be managed via the google advertising platform that you apply for called the Google AdSense network. After your application has been approved Google will show adverts on you sites that are relevant to the content of your site. All these adverts are coming from google clients that are advertising using their Google AdWords network. You will get commission for all clicks to these adverts that are through your site. The program has been there long and they are very good at monitoring this to avoid any click frauds.
Affiliete program : with this type of monetization you will basically get a commission for all the products that you will sale. This will be by you adding affiliate link on your blog that will link to these products that people will be interested in. The same will also apply if any one comes to your site and clicks on the link that will lead them to merchant site and they end up buying something there, you will be entitle to commission. The commissions vary from site to site. You will get this affiliate from all major e commerce sites online like Amazon, Ebay, Bestbuy etc. You also have to apply for affiliation on these sites so that you can get these links that you will then add to your site.
CPA : which stands for cost per action meaning you will be paid for the action any client will do as per the respective link that you are promoting. There are almost the same like the AdSense affiliate but the only difference AdSense you are paid when people just click on the link but with CPA they will have to take action as instructed on the site. Most of these offers are into collecting email addresses and getting client details. They do this by offering an incentive that after you take a specified action. If you are looking for these offers to promote you can get them from many affiliate networks line Neverblue, MaxBounty, Peerfly etc these are just a few but there are many more and we keep on getting new networks as days go by.
If you where here looking for the way you can monetize your blog I hope and believe what I have shared here will be able to help. Check me out for some new monetization methods that will be coming I will keep on sharing all these monetization methods.
If you already have a blog or site I would like to say congratulation to you. However, after having this nicely done you will be asking yourself “what next is to follow on getting traffic to these sites or blog?” and it has remained an answered as you did not have any answer. Understanding that is the main question when it comes to blogging and affiliate marketing I will be sharing with you some of fastest ways to get traffic to your site. Among these there will be some that are for free while others you will have to pay. The difference that is there for these traffic ways that is the paid and free ones is that for the free ones you will spend more time while for the paid ones you will spend less time setting up.
These will bring traffic very fast to your blog, because they always have people that are looking for solutions or talking about something while here.
Forum Traffic: will involve you interaction on forums that are active and are offering same information like what you have on your blog. You will here like a contributor answering the questions to all those that are asking many questions. In so doing you will have many people coming to your blog you post signature that will be on this blog to get more information as per the contributions that you have offered. The effectiveness of this method is in you joining all the major forums in that niche and that are really active meaning having current posts.
Yahoo answers traffic: this hosted and managed by yahoo search engine. It is where many people come when they want to ask any question regarding anything. On this site you can also do the same by answering only the questions that are related to your niche. There more the questions your answer the more the possibility of having more traffic to your blog. This will come from all those that will be happy with your answer. We will also have to abide by all posting guidelines so that our account is not put in danger.
Blog commenting: here we will be following all the blogs that are offering the same information like what we have on our blog. We will be adding more information to the post that they have on their blog and we feel that there is something missing. Apart from this we will also answer any questions that we will see unanswered from the contributors on their blog. There will be a link back to our blog on all comments that we have posted here.
Social media commenting: on this method we will make use of all the major social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
