Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Turning points in time. We can read the historical archives in print and online to see the actual turning points of events in world history and reactions that took place. With that knowledge we learn and sometimes we can even prevent repeating the same mistakes, however some events cannot be prevented and we are destined to be right in the middle of them.

The current economic conditions are not a surprise, I think we are more surprised when we are warned it's coming, but we also know this is a cycle that has happened before and will happen again. It may even be looked at as a necessity, the same type of thing that happens in nature. An old growth forest is prone to fire as it ages and eventually it does burn down, it will re-grow. It is the same for an economy that developed until it too hits maximum growth, falls down, it must and will be rebuilt. As tragic as these may first appear, there are always positives. Everyone is given the ability to start fresh, new thoughts will grow and new ideas blossom. It starts slowly, but the wheels start turning and progress is made.

So here's something to think about; do you let this type of event define you or do you define this type of event? You can make this your own turning point by not waiting for everyone else to react, react now and start the rebuilding process. Create new ads that reflect the times and are economically sensitive, make your presence felt with strategic ad campaigns and strong affiliate marketing links. During times like these  people will follow a leader, they have no idea, nor do they care who is sitting back watching.        

Sincerely, Barry Scott Editor

The REAL SECRET To Consistent Commission Checks

By Jimmy D. Brown
It's important that you understand something about affiliate marketing from the very beginning -

Earning affiliate income isn't easy for the average person.

Let's face it, there are 50 gazillion other people out there doing the exact same thing you are doing - if you could remember what it is that you are doing. :)

So, that's what I want to address. Here's the mindset that I want you to remember: there are only so many customers out there.

And each affiliate in the program is doing basically the same thing to try to reach them.

That's why you are going to be different. Got it?

Before I jump into what I consider to be the "real secret" to earning commissions with affiliate programs, let me share with you a basic concept that is going to be important to what you are going to learn today.

Here is how the average affiliate approaches promoting their affiliate link...

A) Send out a mailing. Purchase ezine ads. Get a few pay-per-click keywords. Post a few links. Make a small profit. Get discouraged. Move on to the next affiliate program.

Or, if they are slightly more aggressive...

B) Send out a mailing. Purchase ezine ads. Get a few pay-per-click keywords. Post a few links. Write a few articles. Create an eBook. Do a joint venture. Swap ads. And they continue promoting that same affiliate program until they (along with a few other aggressive affiliates) have found every potential customer on the face of the earth. Make a decent profit. Where do I go now? Move on to the next affiliate program. While I certainly agree that the "slightly more aggressive" affiliate is on the right trail with their approach, it still leaves a common problem that all affiliates have...

Finding NEW customers.

You make an affiliate sale. Great. You make another one.

Great. You keep working and working and working to make another sale and another sale and another sale. Now, remember, there are a gazillion others out there trying to do the same thing. And, even if all of these other affiliates only make one or two sales each...

..that's a LOT of customers that you WON'T be selling to!

For example: If there are 10,000 affiliates promoting Product A and they all, on average, sell just 2 copies each, that's 20,000 customers that are immediately unavailable for you to sell to.

Doesn't matter how hard you promote and how much you do, you WILL NOT sell them a second copy of something they have already bought. Even if they love it. They won't buy another copy.

So, here's the "real secret." While everyone is promoting the heck out of all of the same programs you are, you need to refine who it is that you are promoting.

***Bottom line: Start FOCUSING on those affiliate programs that offer MONTHLY commissions.

Here's why. Let's say you promote an absolutely awesome product by Mr. Guru that sells for $29.97. And Mr. Guru gives you 50% commission. By the time all of the processing fees are out of the way, you earn about $14.00 for a new customer.

And you're done with that customer -- it's time to move on and find the next guy.

HOWEVER, if you promote an affiliate program that pays MONTHLY, let's say a membership site, then here's what you would find happens...

The membership site is $27.00 PER MONTH. You earn $13.50 per MONTH for every referral you make for as LONG AS THEY REMAIN ACTIVE!

With the $29.97 product, you earn $14.00 for all of your efforts in finding a customer. One time commission. That's it. Time to find another customer. With the MONTHLY service, you earn about the same commission for that same customer. Then, next month you earn that commission over again! Month after that, you're still earning that same commission from that same customer.

For each and every month that the customer continues to use the service you continue to bring in the commission without finding a new customer.

Do you see the potential here?

It makes much more sense to focus on promoting affiliate programs that bill monthly and pay commissions monthly. That way, you continue to earn profits from the... Same customer base!

If I am going to buy ads and purchase pay-per-click keywords and create eBooks and bust my behind to get those customers, I'd sure rather get paid every month (without doing a bit of extra work, mind you!) that to only earn a one-time commission.

----------------Side Bar ------------------- While this isn't as good as MONTHLY income, choosing an affiliate program that offers you LIFETIME customers is the next best thing. For example: With some programs when you recruit a customer , they are yours for life. If they purchase future product releases, then YOU receive the commission as the original referrer. It's a good second option, but it's not as good as getting paid monthly!


So, what should you promote? Your eyes have been opened. You've seen the light. You realize that what you've just read does make sense. And you want to get paid monthly! So, what should you promote? While you definitely need to check things out yourself and make that determination on your own, let me give you a short list of TYPES of offers that you can promote that bill monthly and award monthly commission checks.








The important thing is for you to identify at least one really good affiliate program that offers residual income possibilities for you. Once you find the right program to promote, it's a matter of getting as many different people to click on your link as possible. How would you like to have someone teach you ONE simple way to promote your affiliate links every week? Read on for details...

 Top 10 Tips For Using Classified Advertising to Make Money

By Jinger Jarrett
Classified advertising is one of the easiest ways to make money online. The reason is really simple: it is a form of advertising and communication that even those least savvy to the internet understand.

To get the most from your classified advertising, there are certain things you need to do:

1. Study good ads.

Read newspapers, magazines, online classified advertising sites, and anything else that allows you to study classified ads. This will show you what is working and what is not in advertising.

2. Follow the AIDA Formula for writing your ad.

A - Attention

I - Interest

D - Desire

A - Action

3. Write headlines that get visitors to read your ads.

When writing your ad, the headline will be the first thing people see. Write one that gets attention and makes readers want to read it.

4. Use a call to action.

A call to action is where you tell your readers what to do. This can be just about anything: send for more information, join a list, or visit your site.

5. Format your ad properly.

Every ad site will have specific guidelines on how to create your ad. Make sure you read these guidelines. Then you improve the chances of your ad converting. Also, make sure you use good design techniques.

6. Test and track your ads.

It's a waste of time to write and submit ads if you don't know how they are performing. Use a tracking script or create a way to test your ads to see how they perform.

7. Use strategies that help you get your work done faster.

Some systems will allow you to renew your ads without reposting them. This will save you time because it only takes a few seconds to do it.

8. Syndicate your ads.

When you syndicate your ads, you are allowing your ads to be displayed on multiple sites automatically. You don't have to do anything to make this happen. Besides, who do you think makes more money: someone who syndicates and gets his/her ads in front of more people or someone who doesn't?

9. Advertise both online and offline.

Classified advertising is often cheap and even free. If you're on a tight budget, advertise online until you get income coming in. Then try advertising offline. You'll have a greater chance of reaching everyone in your market.

10. Develop a system for writing and posting your ads.

This includes:

*deciding how many ads you will write each day

*where you will submit your ads

*what tools you will use to post your ads

*ad tracking tools

Classified advertising is still an effective way to make money for your business. Apply these 10 principles to help you get better results.

Common Technical Questions

How come my Traffic Exchange/Impression credits now shows me as having negative credits?

Our system for both the Traffic Exchange and the Impressions (Banner/Text) display will always overrun and produce a negative credit balance. The reason is that when the system is aware that you account is getting low on credits or you are at a level where it will get ready to stop, but it cannot account for the views that are in the queue as traffic to our site fluctuates on a daily basis.

So your Ad/Banner may be set up to run in the next few minutes and because we are dealing with 1000s of displays per hour the database cannot account for the credits that will be displayed in queue and will run regardless of the credit balance. Therefore the TE and Impressions will always run into the negative which works to the member's advantage as the member is not held accountable for overdrawn credits if they do not renew.
