Making Your PPC’s Ring True

The reason why you should incorporate PPC into your affiliate marketing program is that earnings are easier to make than in any other kind of affiliate program not using PPC. This way, you will be making profit based from the clickthroughs that your visitor will make on the advertiser’s site. Unlike some programs, you are not paid per sale or action.

PPC can be very resourceful of your website. With PPC Search Engines incorporated into your affiliate program, you will be able to profit from the visitor’s who are not interested in your products or services. The same ones who leave your site and never comes back.

You will not only get commissions not only from those who are just searching the web and finding the products and services that they wanted but you will be able to build your site’s recognition as a valuable resource. The visitors who have found what they needed from you site are likely to come back and review what you are offering more closely. Then they will eventually come back to search the web for other products.

This kind of affiliate program is also an easy way for you to generate some more additional revenues. For example, when a visitor on your site does a search in the PPC Search Engine and clicks on the advertiser bided listings, the advertisers’ account will then be deducted because of that click. With this, you will be compensated 30% to 80% of the advertisers’ bid amount.

Successful Affiliate Tenets

Every affiliate marketer is always looking for the successful market that gives the biggest paycheck. Sometimes they think it is a magic formula that is readily available for them. Actually, it is more complicated than that. It is just good marketing practices that have been proven over years of hard work and dedication.
There are tactics that have worked before with online marketing and is continuing to work in the online affiliate marketing world of today. With these top three marketing tips, you will be able to able to increase your sales and survive in the affiliate marketing online.

What are these three tactics?

1. Using unique web pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save some money on web hosting. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every product and nothing more.

Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do to those who buys them. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product. Be sure that these customers are more than willing to allow you to use their names and photos on the site of the specific product you are marketing.

You can also write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.

2. Offer free reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so it they simply cannot be missed. Try to create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect.

Only two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: closed sale or the prospect leaving the page and never return again. By placing useful information into their inboxes at certain specified period, you will remind them of the product they thought they want later and will find out that the sale is closed. Be sure that the content is directed toward specific reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound like a sales pitch.

Focus on important points like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include compelling subject lines in the email. As much as possible, avoid using the word “free” because there are still older spam filters that dumps those kind of contents into the junk before even anyone reading them first. Convince those who signed up for your free reports that they will be missing something big if they do not avail of your products and services.

3. Get the kind of traffic that is targeted to your product. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will be among those who move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that is focusing on your target customers and what you have put up might just grab their interest.

Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 300-600 words in length. By continuously writing and maintaining these articles you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers to your site in a day.
Always remember that only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. If you can generate as much as 1,000 targeted hits for your website in a day, that means you can made 10 sales based on the average statistic.

The tactics given above does not really sound very difficult to do, if you think about it. It just requires a little time and an action plan on your part.

Try to use these tips for several affiliate marketing programs. You can end maintaining a good source of income and surviving in this business that not all marketers can do.
Besides, think of the huge paychecks you will be receiving…

Have Banners Bit The Dust

Yes I Said It

Yes I Said It

Here is a quick list of some things you can include in your plan that are not banners.

* Text links. OK, these are oldies but goodies. Text links are most often 65 or more characters of text sometimes accompanied by a logo or button that are often fixed placements. They are typically at the bottom of a page but sometimes can creep their way up above the fold in the side of a page. In my experience, the vast quantity of these you get — because they are often fixed placements on every page of a site or site section — makes them the darling of a campaign. The key is to squeeze something compelling into the limited amount of text you typically get.

* In-text ads. These are very subtle but in our experience effective. Sponsor certain keywords in networks like Vibrant or Kontera and then those words — when published on participating sites — show up in the copy with two green underlines (as is the case with Vibrant.) When a user rolls her mouse over the underlined word, a window pops with either a static text ad, rich media flash ad, or even a video ad. The cool part is that this part (the voluntary impressions) cost you nothing. In-text is like paid search so you only pay for the click — typically $2 to $4.

* Google content ads with site targeting. So here you might say, huh? Google comes out of the search budget. Well have a look at Google’s site network and see if any of the sites in the network overlap with your plan. This a great back door into those sites where you can actually get some cost-per-click placements. How much? That depends on the bidding, but you still may find that even if they are a couple bucks they come out to be cheaper than the ones you are getting from banners.

* Sponsored search. OK, again people say that should be part of our search budget. That’s true, but present the results integrated with your online media if you can. Reality is, paid search and everything we do comes under the umbrella of “online media.” Breaking search out separately doesn’t allow you to really get a touchline handle on your online channel. Sponsored search is part of online media and at a very high level should be viewed as an integral part of a company’s online presence.

Is Your Blog Aging Like a Fine Zinfandel

process of aging starts immediately after the grapes are picked,
crushed and pressed. The grapes are then put into an oak barrel or
steel vat, with some winemakers preferring to add oak chips to the
vat. During the aging process acids, sugar and tannin interact. By
having more tannin present the winemaker is able to age the wine for
a longer period without fear of oxidation. This along with
temperature, light conditions, and alcohol complete the aging
process. Wines age faster with a warmer temperature. So the
winemaker tries to maintain a cool

55-65 degree temperature in a dark area as the ideal aging
atmosphere. A big fluctuation in temperature or light conditions on a
daily or weekly basis is detrimental to a good wine.

why are red wines aged more than white wines? A simple explanation is
that all grapes are white inside, which means that red wine needs to
allow the exterior skin to mix with the interior when being crushed
to give it the red color. This mixture contains tannin, which also
aids the aging process significantly. You also get tannin from the
oak sides of the barrel. Compounds within these, known as phenolics,
allow the wine to age longer while keeping the wine from oxidizing.
So the red wine is able to age longer and develop a more full
flavored bold taste.

wines have these same compounds but at much lower levels. This is
because the inside of the grape is what wine manufacturers mostly use
and by not using as much of the exterior skin less tannin is present.
This results in a considerable shorter aging process than a vat with
a large amount of tannin present. Attempting to age most white wines
over an extended period causes it to flatten and lose some of its
aromatic freshness.

go ahead and save that special red wine for your Grandchild’s
marriage, but be sure to serve the white wine within two or three

go through the above process to be ready for consumption. Next the
wine is bottled and stored in wine cellars to finish the aging
process. Most wines are consumable when the purchased. The main
reason is because no one expects to plan the dinner menu for that
special party two or three years in advance in order to age the
correct wine for the occasion. And how many people have a wine cellar
to complete the aging process of their favorite wine?

is also used in religious ceremonies in many cultures. The Bible
mentions wine no less than 191 times. The references in both
testaments often admonish the reader to use wine, but to use it
properly and not to misuse it.

not an old friend, for the new is not comparable to him. A new friend
is as new wine: when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure.”


was created from the beginning to make men joyful, and not to make
men drunk. Wine used with moderation is the joy of the soul and the
heart.” Ecclesiastes 31:35-36.

no longer water but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake.”

Timothy 5:23..

health effects of wine are also the subject of considerable ongoing
debate and study. In the USA, a boom in red wine consumption was
touched off in the 1990s by ’60 Minutes’, and other news reports on
the French paradox. But now research indicates that moderate red
wine consumption may help protect against certain cancers and heart
disease, and can have a positive effect on cholesterol levels and
blood pressure. It now seems clear that regular consumption of up to
1-2 drinks a day does reduce mortality, due to 10%–40% lower risk
of coronary heart disease, for those over the age of 35. This is
because of the presence of antioxidants in the wine as well as
significant amounts of resveratrol, which is naturally present in the
grape’s skin. The original studies showed this more in red wines
due to the higher concentrations of resveratrol.

has been shown previously to have a number of potentially beneficial

including antioxidant, anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory and
anti-cancer effects.

are a few common and uncommon global varieties of wine.

king of white wines is Chardonnay. It has a vanilla or smoky type
aroma and flavor and goes especially well with fish and white meat.

Blanc is another popular white wine which gives off herbal or
vegetatal and an ocassional peppery aromas. It has a higher acidity
level than the Chardonnay and seafood is a good match for this wine.

is often blended with Sauvignon Blanc to fill out this more acidic
variety of white wines. Semillon alone has more subtle aromas and has
a relatively low acidity. Its golden color along with the scent of
figs and lemons adds to its attractiveness and it goes well with
cheese. This is one of the few white wines that age very well.

is a excellent wine to have with food, because of its balance of
sugar and acid and its relatively low acidity. It can pair with white
fish just like a dry wine, or with pork, and it can also stand up to
Thai and Chinese cuisine. Riesling’s typical aromas are of flowers,
tropical fruits, and mineral stone. This wine is almost never oaked,
which then leads itself to suitability with most foods.

But, how do you get traffic, traffic large enough that could make a small percentage of eventual buyers enough to make a good profit. Many big companies generate traffic of tens of thousands a day and a measly ten to fifteen percent actually buys, but that small percentage is enough to provide them with good business.

Many of these success stories get their traffic from paying others. Yes that’s right; you have to spend money to make money. Advertising is the key. The more people that knows that your site exists; the more people would of course go to your site, that’s common sense.

They are free and easy to use. With this popularity, they get many visitors and clicks that they are the most common sites that people go to. It is easy to understand why so many companies would pay to advertise with these search engines.

Search engines provide information to the millions of users that they have each day. They provide links to many sites that a user may be looking for. If your sites link pop up in the high ranks of the search results page, you get a great chance that they will go to your site. While search engine optimization is a cheaper and low cost way to get your site a high rank, paying for advertisements will ensure that you will be on the top ranks.

When you pay for your advertisements, it is like paying for your traffic. This may sound like not such a good idea, but the payoffs would tell a different story. When you pay for your traffic, you are guaranteed of a consistent traffic flow to your site. You will never go with an empty sales day.

Paying for your Traffic

Usually, you will be charged with the number of hits a link gets when your ads is clicked, this is called pay per click. For some search engines, you will be charged with the number of times your ad shows up when a certain keyword or keyword phrase is searched. It is imperative that you have good keyword content in your ad. There are many tools that aid you in using the right keyword for the right moment.

All the money you spend in paying for your traffic will not be for naught. You will get an impressive boost in traffic which will also result to a great boost in your sales figures. Paying for your traffic would be a really good idea and you will get all the benefits it has to offer.
