Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Do you ever get confused by Affiliate links and marketing? There are some who get involved but do not understand what they are doing yet actually make some money and of course some don't or never will. Then there are those that do know what they are doing and again some make money and some don't.  

Affiliate marketing is in its simplest form is; you are advertising and promoting someone else's product. In a sense you are a salesman, how good you are is based on how much effort you put into it. If you sign up to be an affiliate you are placing their link on your website, if you place it in a poor spot on your page or in among tens of other links chances are good that it or any others will ever get clicked.

However, if you select Affiliate programs that are beneficial to your site or have a good payout program, finding a spot on your website for each with a small write up or introduction will often increase the click through rate, which in turn increases your traffic credits with the affiliate and with increased traffic there will be an increase sales commissions.

Business Networking to Increase Your Bottom Line

By Nicole J Rivera
Traditional means of marketing are not dead; in fact, they are still very much alive and proving to be effective. Tactics such as face-to-face networking and word-of-mouth is proof of this. When deciding on what business networking methods you will use, it is important to first, understand how networking can work for you. Second, research what groups are right for you. Third, make a goal for what you want to accomplish.   
Business networking in the form of joining and meeting with trade groups, industry associations, chambers of commerce and similar organizations in person can flat out increase your bottom line. By meeting other professionals in person, on common ground and at a place of mutual interest, you will begin to form relationships among your community. Once you start building relationships and regularity among these groups, members will begin to remember you, your abilities and your expertise. The next time a member needs something in your field; they will remember you and therefore will probably reach out to you. In essence, you will form a loyal network of followers who may at some point need your business, refer your business or want to collaborate on a joint goal. Overall, business networking is a great way to reach out to your local community, gain new prospects, learn new methods and in the end increase sales.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to networking and the cost of membership is usually low, but to avoid wasteful spending and time, you must do your research. An easy place to start is to check out your local chamber of commerce. Stop by the city office or attend a meeting to learn a little more about them. By joining the chamber of commerce, you will be able to reach more local businesses and you will have an array of resources available to you. Businesses in the chamber of commerce will vary in industry, sector, demographics and capital, giving you a more versified group to interact with.

Another option is to join an industry related trade group or association. Many trade groups and associations are national, but have local chapters that meet regularly. Trade groups and associations will differ from chambers of commerce in that you will be networking with professionals in your industry, but not necessarily in your sector. The major benefits to becoming a member of a trade group or association is the industry related resources and educational opportunities that will become available to you. Determining what groups, associations, chambers of commerce etc. will require assessing your goals to point you in the right direction.
Defining your goals will help you make the most of your new membership. Is your goal to learn more about the latest industry happenings? Do you want to reach out to your local community? Are you looking to meet other professionals to collaborate with? Whatever your reason to join a group, association, chamber of commerce etc., there should always be a goal involved with it that will directly or indirectly help your business.
Integrating business networking into your marketing initiatives will prove to be a smart decision. You will increase your bottom line by gaining a presence in your community or region, staying educated in industry trends and earning more word-of-mouth recognition among your peers and future consumers.

 Sales in a Recession - Can They Be Increased? 4 Vital Tips!

By H. Matsumoto
So we're in a recession...does that mean your business has to suffer, too?! Absolutely not! There are many things a small business can do to boost their sales to not only survive, but also thrive. If you think having a website and phone book ad are enough, think again! Let's go over just a few VITAL tips on how to increase sales in a recession:

1. Get Creative! Put yourself in your customer's shoes...what would you change about the way you do business from this new perspective? Better customer service? Better deals? More variety? Think outside the box about how to increase sales in a recession in your particular marketplace. Get passionate about your business again and let the creative juices flow!

2. There is Strength in Numbers. In other words...Network, Network, Network! Join networking groups, your local chamber of commerce or even look for a group online. Communities can rebuild faster when working together. Swapping services, referring clients, exchanging ideas on how to increase sales in a recession...all of this can help your business grow, which translates to more sales for you.

3. You Are in Business....So Act Like It! Be prepared to give your quick "elevator" speech about the benefits of your business at all times. Ask for referrals from people that buy, and even those that don't! Just because they don't need your product or service at this time doesn't mean they don't know someone who does! Don't underestimate the power of referrals. This leads us to a big one...

4. Stay front and center! What good is a website if it doesn't have any visitors? And what good are visitors if they aren't being added to your database? And what good is a database if it's not used to position your product or service in front of that client on a regular basis?...you get the picture:) Hint: Want to know how to increase sales in a recession quickly? Repeat sales from current customers!

You really can have a healthy, growing business despite the "gloom and doom" the media feeds us. And believe it or not, it can be done for a lot less money and with a lot less of your time than you think! Using a combination of grassroots marketing and some good online services to help you, you can get back to the passion and creativity your business needs to grow in this economy.

Adlandpro Tips

Some detail into Adlandpro's products and services for the new or experienced user.


Common Technical Questions

I was applying to be an Adlandpro Affiliate why was my Affiliate URL rejected?

1. Submitting a URL which refers to Adlandpro - The purpose of the program is to divert external traffic into Adlandpro.com. If you are submitting a URL which refers to Adlandpro.com then traffic is not coming from outside the site and thus defeats the purpose of the program.
2. Incorrect or Invalid User Linked - Make sure that the code you used refers to YOUR UserID. There is a portion of the code which appears like "?ref=281002" the portion after "ref=" must be your UserID. If not, this must be changed.
3. Submitting a non-English Character Set URL - Because the vast majority of our user sites are in English, affiliate sites must be in English or will not be accepted. We do not have international subsidiaries at this time. If your site was rejected, make sure the character set is not in a different language.
4. Page Not Found - This is pretty self explanatory. The page which you submitted is non-existent and our automated system cannot access it. Make sure the URL you submit is correct.
5. Time Outs - Sometimes servers will be down for whatever reason and we understand that this happens from time to time. When we get this error message on URLs you submit, we try them once more the day after. If it is still down, we suspect a greater issue is responsible and thus remove the submission from the database.
6. Link is Banned - There are a lot of websites out there which use simulated clicks to divert traffic to websites. We watch for these carefully on our Affiliate Links. Make sure you are not using a site which uses pop-under, spiders, robots, or any other auto-surfing technology to create activity on your Affiliate URL.
7. Inappropriate Content - We will not approve any websites which link to, distribute, or is in any way associated with Adult-Related or Pornographic material, pirated software or copyrighted material, Questionable Content, or any subject or theme which may be considered offensive in nature.

If you have any questions regarding email notifications or if we can help in anyway please contact us.
