Affiliate internet marketing on the web is the best job in town says Peter Hanley in this quick review on making money the right way with affiliate marketing

Affiliate internet marketing web

What the heck is affiliate marketing anyway?

From the urban dictionary

A marketing practice based on the internet in which affiliates are rewarded for marketing on the behalf of other companies, bringing customers/visitors to the business’s site.

One version

So you need no stock, no shop, no billing nothing except a marketing machine.

What sort of products can affiliates sell?

The list here is pretty endless and It all depends on you. What sort of thing are you interested in.
You can sell insurance, health products, Animal things, building bits, Jewelery, watches, clothing, shoes, sporting equipment, computers, phones and on and on.

You can sell virtual products like training programs, e.books, games anything you can download could be available for you to make money on.

Log into Amazon the biggest affiliate marketer in this world and see the list of products. These are all available to you to sell.

  • Low value and volume products
  • High value targeting products
  • Recurring billing products
  • Repeat business customers

Each of these has a specific market and it is just how you target the market that makes the difference.

Where do you start with Affiliate marketing?

Like any business or activity you need to gather the basics before you start. To not do this will lead to frustration and failure.
Furthermore if you have no idea or plan you will not get accepted as an affiliate , or worse accepted and cancelled for not performing.

Amazon is the easiest to get into but also the easiest to get out of as they cancel for non performance.

You wake up one morning and decide that running a marathon is your thing. Now you have your product what comes next?
The Boston Marathon is eight months away so that could be a great goal.
Your problem is then a mile/kilometre is a long way so you need to work up to it.
You now plan a training program based around an end result.
Doing a half marathon first is a good start but what of equipment?
Don’t ever do long distance running without a very good pair of shoes or injuries will happen.

Then you will need a nice pair of loose fitting shorts, same with a T.Shirt and if a girl some support for the bouncers.
Running distances is hot and hard so have some vaseline handy for the parts that rub together.
Trust me I have done this.

Then starts the challengers, good days, bad days, cold days, hot days, minor injuries and the list goes on.

Affiliate marketing is like a marathon.

  • You need a product
  • A plan keeps you on track
  • You start a training program
  • Then some easy steps
  • Have the correct tools
  • Plan for an emotional ride
  • Achieve your goal.

Now products are everywhere and all you need to do is decide what sort of products suit you.
Type into Google a product then the word affiliate and see the list.

Places like JZ Zoo, Commission Junction, CJ affiliates, shop .com, Share a sale, Clickbank all have lots of affiliates offers but most are not that good. I would say about 10% will make you money the rest will take your money.

Do you have to pay to be an Affiliate?

This is a yes and no answer. Some products require you to pay and some to join. Others will insist you use their product while buying advertising is not out of the question.

At the start keep your money in your pocket.

The internet is full of scammers and they are often the better adverts. Promises of riches beyond belief working but a few hours a week from the couch while watching TV. Furthermore, your Ferrari is being washed by the home help as you plan an extended offshore cruise.

To this day people still get sucked in big time so don’t let it be you. You are warned that affiliate internet marketing web sites are ready to take your money.

How do you learn Affiliate marketing web pages

First of all, you need to learn a few skills along the way.

Then you will need to know about marketing and web pages, SEO and links and Funnels and Blogs and all things Internet.

Finally you will need an understanding of attracting people to your affiliate site so that you pass them through.

The best place to start is at The Wealthy Affiliate.
Now, this is a program that takes you from step one to step money in easy lessons.

The important thing here is that none of your money changes hands until you are trained and ready to launch a great Internet career.

This will be at a time when you have an understanding of just what you want and how you are going to go about it.

It will be like the Boston Marathon because you have taken all the steps to get there and be confident of success because you are ready.

You will be so ready to take the challenge because you have allready started to rack up minor victories. Symbolically the 12 k run done, the half Marathon done and a three hour prep finished. You are so ready you can not fail.

The prize of success is yours for the taking.

Don’t just take my word as gospel

When you log into Wealthy affiliate you will see the Blog forum with members comments, read them and learn from them because they are users just like you and me.
Folks from all over the world, every nationality and age included in a family atmosphere. There are no prejudices here, everyone is equal and the only leveller is your very own personal work ethic.
It is not an overnight success. Nothing comes that easy but it can be an overriding success.
See comments like got my first sale today too one saying I made $40,000 this month. This from genuine members with nothing to gain but sharing their enthusiasm.

Age is just a number

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Age is just a number that changes every year but do you? here Peter Hanley looks at how age becomes equal when hiding on the internet.

Too young or too old

Are you too young or too old?

I remember in my younger days going for a job and you were always too old or too young for the position.
It was often just an excuse but it was and probably still is used as a factor not to employ you.

Have you experienced something akin to this?

Jobs for young and not so many jobs for old

The world changes in its attitude to age. My first example is a very recent one that happened to a family member.

When coffee became a mainstream product shop sought out well seasoned Barista.
You needed experience and age to understand the intricacies in smelling and dishing out the aroma.

Older guys with curling moustaches, tattoos and bad attitudes pumping out endless arrays of coffee choices.
My friend an older female won Barista of the year and best visuals on a cappuccino.

Have a look around now and the baristas will be trendy young, 20 something, females doing the same job for half the pay.

She is now to old for the job at 40+. WHY?

Young barista

In this case, the advance in technology has made it easier to make a bad cup of coffee. The machines are all press here for this coffee etc taking much of the skill away from the coffee maker.

When Andria related this to me I thought it was the old excuse syndrome. I then looked at a dozen local coffee shops and noticed the change. Backpackers, students, and part-time workers all young and hogging the front line.

Sometimes you are too young for a job

I give you example number two. When young is not good.
The medical proffession is like this. We don’t want to go to a young Doctor. Sraight out of school with no real experience we much preffer the older more wisely person.

It recently happened to me. I pulled a muscle in my shoulder and needed to go to a local Physio.
It is not common occurence so I rang and made a booking for someone available for advise.

I got there and out walked a 20 something, attractive female. Now I, like most males, don’t mind a young female but I was taken aback. I wanted someone with some time behind them and not a girl on work experience.

OK, I was wrong but I am an old bloke and didn’t know better.
Jen my new fav person did a great job and I would recommend her to anyone. It was my initial reaction that I am writing about.

Age, retirement and occupation.

The age of retirement in many countries has changed. The original age of 65 has gone out by a year every two years as they head towards retirement at70.

I understand that 70 is the new 60 and we are all considered much younger than our parents.

What this does not take into consideration is manual labour. Those involved in heavy manual labour are worn out by 60. Backs and knees no longer take the strain. yes, you can get smarter but you need to change before it is too late.

Internet, the age equaliser

I started writing this because a friend at our internet group turned 80 recently and is still an active contributor.

She is not the only one though as there are many over 65 that are succeding in Internet marketing

On the the internet you are not an age you are all equal to your contribution. In fact us older generation use it as a badge the same as the Young.
The 20 year old says I am only 20 and doing this and the 80 year old states I am 80 and still going.
In between it matters not.

You can be completely invisible on the net. I use a picture of myself so you can see I am not a young punk but I could be 60 or 75.
In fact, many use a much younger picture of themselves to hide there age I use it as a tool.
My years of business experience and development into the internet helps me in many ways.

What does the internet provide for the older group?

The answer is anything and everything. There are no age barriers for those that want to learn and adapt.

As an affiliate marketer no one knows your age, no one sees the wrinkles or the arthritis creeping into the hands.

If you want to learn you can. Many won’t of course, some are old before their time, not willing to go with technology. Can’t use a mobile phone properly, program the Sat Nav need the kids to look up facebook I see them all the time.

I also see those that want to stay young learn and adapt to the constant change that the Internet throws at us.

Learning all things Internet is easy

At Wealthy affiliate they have a free course on making money and being successful on the net.

Training is written and video and self-paced so anyone can follow along. You learn the basics before branching out into an interest that suits your needs and abilities.

I quote from a bit of Fran’s writing just today, She is 80 years old

Yes, it is true that I am not physically as active. However, I am fortunate that my life has been very stimulating and, yes, very active. I have viewed all the stages of my life with great interest. “Now” feels no different.
Now, again, I am involved in something new. I view with awe and astonishment the world I’ve entered with WA. I find that I am not too old to keep learning.
It is very rewarding to me to realize, first-hand, that life is a continuum and that age is relative. It is only one standard of measurement. Quality of life depends on many other factors as well.
The ability to learn more, to grow and commune with like-minded souls, and to move onward and upward, regardless of our age, is a most provident opportunity.
Thank you, WA, for entering my life and teaching me that, if I am young in mind, I have found my own fountain of youth.

Fran K Wealthy affiliate member

I could not have said it better. What ever your age start your learning now.

In conclusion I close by saying that learning keeps your mind young and your will to live a better life
more enhanced than those that give in to age.
Age is a number

How to Affiliate marketing

Reading Time: 5 minutes

If you search How to Affiliate marketing you join a whole group wanting to make money on the internet. Here Peter Hanley starts your new career.

What exactly is affiliate marketing and are there different types?

Lets look at the Urban dictionary

A marketing practice based on the internet in which affiliates are rewarded for marketing on behalf of other companies, bringing customers or visitors to the business’s site.

Urban dictionary

My warning to you, don’t attempt anything until you read all the following

The best job in town

If you get this correct it is far and away the best job in town.

  • It can be done from anywhere at any time
  • You have no rent to pay or shop front
  • There is no stock to carry
  • No debtors or creditors or bad debts
  • Very little capital is reuired
  • Sell big ticket items
  • Fast mnoving items
  • Recurring billing income

What things can an affiliate sell?

Just about anything you can think off can be sold by affiliates. It is a fast growing area of sales across the world becuase it moves product.
It could be:

A virtual product like software, online training, E.Book, games, insurance, health care, videos

Hardgoods of all kinds, Plains trains to toy cars.
Health products, clothes, shoes and more

Recurring billing services, web hosting, backup, Video storage etc

First things first for affiliates

You must have a basic idea of what you want to do before you enter this market. I can show you a million affiliate offers but you won’t get accepted or be successful unless you understand the basics

Affiliate Marketing training to prepare yourself for success.

It is going to take a bit of your time but none of your money.
Consider this. You contact a company and they say great, how are you going to market my xyz shoes. You reply dunno what do you suggest? They say how many contacts on your list or your webpage.
Your answer is, not many really so the interview is not going well. You then get an email saying thanks but no thanks, it hurts, you feel jilted upset and probably want to give up all because you were unprepaired.

Beware the affiliate scammers

Because this is such a massive market the sharks do circle the unready.
Do not pay money to learn how to be scammed.
Reliable institutions like Amazon University and Wealthy Affiliate are ok but many or I might even say most are not.

Amazon University focuses on their products and how to sell them. This is great starter territory but a quick search will show all the paid ads in this category. This is a fair indication of the paying traffic. ( If you don’t know what a paid ad is go straight to the training below you really need help)

How to find Affiliate products to sell

This is the easiet part of this whole post but first of all you need to detirmine what you want to sell.

It is no good considering selling anything out of your comfort zone because it will make life so hard at the start.
Yes, a good marketer can sell anything to anyone but you are not there yet.

In addition to this, and I will tell you how to get products we will look at The stores first

Affiliate Marketing stores

First of all, we have people like JV Zoo and commission junction where it is really easy to start.
I am lukewarm on them as a majority of products are not all that good yet I do have a couple I really like. Furthermore, it gives you a good idea of what virtual products are out there. Remember however most are pretty basic with low commissions and high return rates.

Then you have people like Share-a -sale, Clickbank, CJ affiliiates, Shopify and many others that act as a conduit for a lot of products.

The reason for this is that it takes special software to properly manage the sales process so many companies outsource the problem.

So you want the affiliate answer?

By now you have an idea of what you want to sell.
It may be anything. Now to go to your search engine like google, type in waat you want to sell , for example say Shoes then space then affiliates.
You now have about 230 million searches to choose from.

Not bad hey?

But wait! will you be accepted? With Google for example you get in easy but if no sales are made in three months it is goodbye baby.

Other sites are more selective and want details on how you are going to get sales, some demand you have the product , a website, blog or funnel. A source of leads etc.

Here is the free training I promised you.

Yes it is also an affiliate site, a webhosting site and quite a few other disiplnes as well.
You can become an affiliate on day one and walk down your street telling friends about it and earn money. You must however do a lot more than that.

It is not an overnight occupation. It will take some time and personall effort however it will repay you many times over.
At Wealthy affiliate there are hundreds making a living from the training they have received. In some cases a six figure living in all sorts of products.

You won’t, of course, take my word for it, and neither you should because I am trying to lead you into a product although my intentions are honourable.

What I want from you is enter the Wealthy affiliate portal and have a look around. No Credit card cash or your second child.
Have a look at the training and the members portal and even follow a couple of members to see what they say.

My dare is for you to find a bad comment.

What you can not do is promote your products or try and sell anything on this site. The site is very strict in some way so you are not inundated with crappy products to buy.

You can get a free website and learn how to set it up, learn about Keywords and use the included tool and start some affiliate activity. By this time you have not paid out a single dime. No nothing.

You have the best training on the net, a free website, bundles of 24-7 support and the ability to hit it big.

My dare is for you to find a bad comment.

When you upgrade as a full Affiliate at a small monthly cost You have a 50 website package and the ability to really stretch your wings

You are a click away from the start of a journey. A click away from a life-changing experience that will captivate you and have you wanting more.

As a result there is always more as you gain the knowledge to grow your boundaries far past anything you could ever imagine.

Picture this, You are earning about $5000 us a month and they want to fly you to Las Vegas America, all expenses paid and wine and dine you like a King or Queen.
Furthermore you will mix with other achievers and learn how they make more than you to get you excited for the next leg of the journey.

The only thing stopping you is You.

Finally, it is all there for you, just take the first step and thank me later.

How to Affiliate marketing by Peter Hanley

Wealthy affiliate legit?

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Is Wealthy affiliate legit? A lot has been written about this but listen to the users and not the Knockers to get a true perspective.

wealthy affiliate legit

What does Legit stand for with regard to Wealthy Affiliate

Let’s look at the urban dictionary for a definition before we start this journey.

a shortened form of the word “legitimate“. however, this term is nowhere near the real meaning of “legitimate”, since it is commonly used to describe things as cool or extremely awesome.

I just love the Cool or extremely awesome description because it describes my journey with Wealthy Affiliate.

Yes, it is a legitimate company and has over a million really satisfied users that shout its credentials every opportunity they get.

First of all, I have always wanted them to change the name because it does not do justice to their business.
Affiliate marketing is only a part of what they do.

Probably something like “Webhosting, training and page building with an opportunity to make money in many ways” was more appropriate but they thought it a bit long.

I also considered starting a business with no money but this was shelved as well.

Using WordPress as a page builder

Wealthy Affiliate legit
Used by world leading companies

When you start building webpages, as I did. WordPress provides a great opportunity for accelerated learning.
It’s not like the old days of code writing it is now all about block building and creating great graphics.

Things called Plugins support your activities and guide you on the correct path. Most are free but the more advanced ones may cost a few bucks.

Hey at 75 years old If I can do it so can you.
As an example;
While writing this post I am guided on my writing skills and importantly SEO, or getting your page seen on the Google search.
For a result, I use a plugin called Yoast SEO, which is free, and guides you right through the process and marks your writing skills, offering suggestions to change.

Keywords are the starting point of all internet activity

It is true that Keywords are your search term and Wealthy Affiliate even supply a Keyword Tool that tells you what is good and bad. They are there, free and every contribution to the net starts right here.
In addition, they provide a Pro version but learn on trainer wheels before paying out money.

Have a basic understanding of the internet before you go anywhere. Training is the key.

Do you know where the best, free and full training module on the Net resides?
Yep. you got it in one.
There is no doubt this training is second to none and comes at a price anyone can afford.
In fact, log in here to have a quick look at the first lesson, plus more if you want, it’s all free.

How about a free website to get creative with

Where do you get this? Yep right again at Wealthy Affiliate. In fact you can have a couple of sites and they are yours forever. When you want to pay for the full package it will be there for you. By a full package, I mean the 50 website package.

SEO is on the table

wealthy affiliate legit

Without some help with SEO, you will be forever lost in the wilderness. It really matters and you will discover the basic rules you must follow to achieve a first-page ranking on Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Or, you can pay for traffic

What? Spend money? Yes but spend it wisely to generate a return that is greater than your spend
so you can rinse and repeat.
The problem is that if you do it wrong you are really just wasting money. AT WA they cover this in the training so you have a chance of success.

Can you use WA for any business or just for Affiliate marketing

The answer is any business you want. My journey started in learning basics to better manage my daily business. Furthermore, I wanted to know what went into a website and what it could achieve.
In addition, I was paying good money for someone else to do it and I wanted to keep track of them. Finally, I had them change to my learnings for a better experience and to get a product that achieved all the rules and made page number One

What about Affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is getting paid for recommending a sale of someone else’s product.
Amazon is a great example of this and just about any product you can think off can be searched on the net.

Wealthy Affiliate is no different in that they pay you for every successful recommendation. What’s more, you get paid every month for the life of the client thus allowing you to build a business around this product.
Furthermore, you can even do this as a free member. Perhaps you don’t earn as much but it is still a great deal. get a couple of deals on board and upgrade for virtually free.

Support is a must have

Furthermore, when things go wrong you need someone to talk to. With Wealthy Affiliate, there are several ways to do this.
You have a 24-hour support line for all things technical. Having used this I find you usually get an answer within the hour.

Chat line. For simpler things, there is a chat line to overcome drafting or similar situations. I have spent hours trying to work out a problem when a 2 min chat would have helped.

Ask the forum. This is something special where the question is out of the square but you need an answer.
One I liked recently was “is Yoast SEO or All in One SEO Best for my site”
The debate got going and a consensus was taken with a clear winner.

Sometimes one of the owners will chip in for their say and help guide you forward. Plus they are always available for contact if things go wrong

What about a forum to share ideas.

Our people share wins and losses, personal issues and current topics. It is like Facebook for Affiliates and a very family environment.
In nearly all cases they are raving fans. They frown on spammers and no pushing products are allowed at any time. While this upsets a few it is very necessary for the majority.

Senior members and ambassadores

Everyone gets a rating from 1 to about 300,000. You then grow by participating within WA where a common goal is the top 200. The top 20 are the ambassadors. Many of these members post regular training and ideas that you can follow and learn from.

Another way of learning is to follow my daily blogs at New Business online where I share ideas in starting and growing a business to profit

Other income from Wealthy affiliate

Affiliate income is not the only source of earnings. In addition, they have an advanced Keyword tool called Jaaxy that you can promote and earn a recurring income from. You can get paid for building training programmes and commenting on another website.
Beginners to experienced all get the same opportunities.
Using Tools like Videos to help grow your following and create extra income. I use Noble Samurai and here I Discuss using it with a free Video maker.

No program without a competition is any good

This is an interesting one because your competition is only you. Should you achieve a certain level of new connections over the year you get an all expenses paid vacation to Las Vegas plus share in a bonding and learning session with other winners.

If you think this is an average achievement read what the winners say. We had to hose them down this year they were so excited. Ordinary people like you and me that have followed the training to the end.
At 300 sales you have already achieved a living wage so this is really the icing on the cake.
No, I was not there but I shall give it a shake this year. I can see it.

Finally the Webhosting details

  • Everything is included.
    Free security to SSL
    Enhanced page speed
    Domain purchase
    Spam Blocker
    Your Site Health
    Plus Site Comments
    Then site feedback and
    Email Accounts

In conclusion, should you want anything else, I have probably missed it.
Try it now to start your future today.

What business for me?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

What business for me? A very common question as we seek to build our own future in doing what we love and earning what we want.

Pick something you love and never work another day.

The actual quote is attributed to Confucius when he said

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
— Confucius

There is quite some conjecture about the origin of the saying and perhaps it was not he who said it but it still remains true to this day.
So lets go for one more while we are at it.

You Are Never Too Old To Set Another Goal or To Dream a New Dream

CJ Lewis

At my humble age of 74 I am still learning and planning. I dream of new adventures and write a Blog every couple of days in my interest group.

So whether you are 17 or 70 this applies to you.

What business are you in?

The simple answer may be that you are a Bricklayer or carpenter but the answer is wrong.

I had to face this reality recently after reading a book by Michael C Gerber called the E.myth revisited. Because I run a Message service for small business and when asked what I do I answer as such.
I run a message service for business.

First of all that is a product of my business among many similar products. So I went searching for an answer to my business description.

Bare with me here because this will relate to you and your business and how you will describe what you are looking for.
My first attempt was sales and support products for small business, Not bad I thought I can live with that but it still does not convey a feeling.
To cut it short I sell “peace of mind” we look after a side of the business you can’t control

Makes me feel good and my clients understand what they will receive.

How does the e.myth relate to you?

First of all the E.myth is the entrepreneurial myth
and all about succeding in business It is about being in the 80% and not the 20%

So what drives you? Perhaps you want to care for animals, the environment, design snazzy cloths, be a better landscaper or work on the internet.

But bring it down to bite sized ideas.

For example the internet is a massive depository of ideas and opportunities .

  • You can build and repair computers
  • Maybe you can write software
  • Specialise in Website building
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Social media
  • Blogging

Each of these is really different and require very opposed skillsets. I have no idea of building computers or writing software but love doing websites and blogging. even Social media leaves me although I have become an active participant.
In saying that I confess to going on a journey with Social Media.

To learn about building and building a Social profile I looked for an interest that I had and could share with others.
having recently adopted a rescue cat I chose that as my subject. Then I chose a personality for my cat and a plan for posting. The idea was to get to 2000 followers.

Now with over 5000 followers, it takes me all of 30 minutes a week to keep the site current and interesting.
I do it for the return I get from the followers and as an exercise that I can share with others

So more on you and less on me

What do you like, what are your interests and then develop from there?
When you discover your interest then brake it down even further.
So you love animals, don’t we all but are the best one’s Horses or dogs, wild animals or snakes.

Horses have specialist in riding, training, buckjumping, gymkana , shoeing etc.

Then there are Racehorses, draft horses miny shetlands so even further down to a desire.

Specialising is the starting game . Unfortunately you must also have an understanding of the whole horse before you specialise in Hoofs.

To understand the Internet you need some training
on all the basics. No matter what business you chose the internet will drive it.
All marketing is now internet based, all internet skills can be learned on line.

One great place to start and finish is the training at Wealthy Affiliate. first of all, it is free to start and comes with a free webpage also has advanced training and the ability to make money well.

In conclusion,

find your niche
narrow it down
do a bit of learning
start the money making journe

what business for me

Home business reviews

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Home business reviews have a look at the good and the bad of the internet and trying to make money online in a day on the internet.
Plus my unique 13 rules to guide you to success.

Try out all the crappy internet methods so you understand good from bad

We all make a start where we don’t require any skills, just a bit of time and inflows a truck load of money. NOT

This includes all the sucker bait like surveys and emailing and then all the paid ads at the top of the Google search.

Rule number 1.
Don’t give then any money.

When starting your journey you are at your most vulnerable to the dreams of instant wealth and living the lifestyle of the rich and famous.

Rule number 2.

The people writing lifestyle advertising are experts at it. They format the writing like the proverbial spider drawing you into the net.
Just pay a little now and you are off to instant fame and fortune joining a real exclusive club.

Rule number 3

You will see ads with promises that you need no money, no experience and just an hour a day to start generating like the pros. It is not possible.

Rule number 4

Be realistic in your consideration on any promotion. If it seems to good to be true it will be.
Dig in and see how they promote and promise using glowing testimonials from unknown people.
Link to a Facebook page and see real comments.

Rule number 5

You can work for people like Fivver and make a small amount of money or you can do it for yourself and make more money. If you have a particular skill and want to gain a following this could be a reasonable choice. However, use it to build your customer base of value paying clients

Create your opportunities

Rule number 6

Try and narrow down your attention to a specific role or opportunity. Maybe you are good at creating Visuals, using FaceBook, providing SEO, WordPress guru or what ever really excites you and become the local expert. More at home business ideas

Rule Number 7

Start local aim national. It is far easier to market face to face than it is being noticed on the world wide web. Hone your skills in your own paddock where you can better monitor and manage.
Online business opportunities are everywhere.

Rule number 8

Become a teacher, train others in your new found skill set, mentor, advise, consult.
Each and every element that you are learning has many levels of learning as you dig deeper into a subject. Let’s have a look at one example. In this particular case I use Facebook

  • Why use Facebook? The Pluses.
  • Can a business do without Facebook?
  • Difference between personal and business.
  • How to set up a page.
  • What to post on a site.
  • Graphics
  • Building a following
  • Automated posting
  • Association with a webpage
  • Linking with other media
  • Advertising
  • Retargeting or remarketing
  • Building an income
  • Setting up groups

Plus a lot more I have forgotten. One simple subject provides a long term disiplin

This is information you must lock in

Rule number 9

Consistently upskill yourself by taking new training modules and adapting the principals learned.
The internet is ever changing so you should be as well. Opportunities come and go and stay with the former

Rule number 10

Have a backup skill in an associated environment.
Facebook is still very active but there has been a movement to Instagram so you need an understanding of the impact on your marketing.

You also need to associate Facebook to web pages and what you are trying to achieve and how to do it.
Remember Facebook is to entertain and deliver customers to a web site. A website is to sell the product and not lose the attention span to be lost in trolling facebook.

Where is the best place to learn Internet?

For a start to finish free course there is no place better than Wealthy Affiliate.
You can pick a subject, ask questions, seek special training use support as you build your knowledge.

There are no tricks, read the comments, reviews and make your own mind up. Then pick a training module that interests you.
My suggestion is to start at the start unless you have a basic working knowledge of all things Internet. I wrote a review on Wealthy affiliate that might be of interest.

Video, the new kid taking over

Video is growing so fast it must be rule

Rule number 11

Affiliate marketing

This is the big end all of the internet ideas and a market so big that it now dominates sales across the world.

You will know Amazon but they are just one in a market that will sell any product, anywhere and as a result worth investigating,
To prove my statement think of a product, any product and type it into google followed with the word affiliate. You will see hundreds of searches that offer an opportunity for just about anyone to participate. OK time for a new rule.

Rule number 12

If you don’t know what you are doing you won’t get accepted. No, they will send you away disgruntled and furthermore you probably giving up.

So first of all start a business plan.

Have an idea of what you want out of this and then set up your roadmap to have any chance of success

I wrote more on this recently that may help your new career path

In conclusion
Rule number 13

Understand Keywords. If you miss this you will be whisteling Dixie as they say.

When you get hit with a problem you can’t resolve maybe Peter Hanley has the solution and how Anti malware free saved the day.

Anti malware free
When it happens you will need this advise

What is Malware and why do you need it?

Malware is any software intentionally designed to cause damage to a computer, server, client, or computer network. Malware does the damage after it is implanted or introduced in some way into a target’s computer and can take the form of executable code, scripts, active content, and other software. Wikipedia

How I got hit with Malware

At some stage in life this will happen to you.
I went to a local Government site seeking out details on a Seniors Card.
The first to pop up said seniors card so in my hurry I clicked. My mind was not as quick as my finger as I noticed it was a paid advertisement.
Too late but not to worry bail from that and go to the correct page.

That done I returned to my Home page only to find now that it was competely different. It had been taken over by a new search engin. Not a bad site but one I did not want.
They are very clever at this and target sights that have a vulnerable user profile

Search for a solution on Malware

Using my beaut new page I searched how to get rid of the problem. They did not want to tell me and led me down more rabbit holes that explained nothing.

I Cut across to my Firefox brouser and Googled a fix.
The usuall one go into Setting, choose programs and Delete the errant one.

But no, it is not there.

Enter Malware Bytes

Enter Malwarebytes

Anto Malware Free
My savior and recommendation

This is a program you can download and use it as a free service. They will hound you into going pro to have real time protection but being the cheapskate I am I had the free version.

It worked in 5 minutes

I loaded the software and set it scanning my entire computer, Took about 5 minutes and then I closed down the computer and restarted as instructed.
Malwarebytes had selected all the dirty bits and I just had to press delete.


There are many Malware programes

I looked at Spybot, Norton, IObits and Kaspersky but did not try them.

I run a current paid version of Norton Anti Virus but MalWare skips around it.

Why is anti malware free important to you?

It will happen to you one day when you least expect it. Just tuck this in the memory file and drag it out when you need it. Better still download the free version and have it resident on your computer like an insurance policy.

How do you know when you are infected

From Malwarebytes website

Does your web browser freeze or become unresponsive?
Do you get redirected to web pages other than the ones you are trying to visit?
Are you bombarded with pop-up messages?
Does your computer run slower than usual?
Do you see new icons on your desktop that you don’t recognize?

These are all classic signs of being infected.

What to do also taken from their website

Okay, I’m infected. What do I do now?
  • Remove CDs and DVDs and unplug drives from your computer. Restart in Safe Mode.
  • Download a proven malware scanner such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
  • Disconnect from the internet. Then run a scan.
  • Follow Malwarebytes Premium’s instructions to remove any malware.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Update your operating system, browser, and applications if not current.
  • Reset all of your passwords.

Probably a bit of overkill but they do this as a business so we can only believe them.

Affiliate marketing Australia

Reading Time: 5 minutes

What is Affiliate marketing Australia and how can it make you an online business empire. Here Peter Hanley takes you down a Path to success.

First of all lets explain Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing Australia
Is Amazon the only answer

Affiliate marketing is probably the best form of easy money because you have little or no outlay.
Basically you market someone elses product and get paid a part of the profit.

In the olden days it was called commission selling but now comes with a more Internet name.

  • You have no physical products
  • There is no packing and sending
  • Customer service is done by others
  • Commissions may be one time or recurring
  • Products can be physical or virtual
  • They can include services

What affiliate opportunities in Australia

Start counting now and when you finish reading you will be part way there.

First of all world programmes and Australian programs are available to you. There is little transparency in many of them and they are sometimes more to your market.

I live in Perth Western Australia so I write about local and overseas products.

Amazon Affiliate program

This is arguably the most famous and widly recognised affiliate program available to the masses.

Your marketing and advertising links to an Amazon site and if people buy you get paid. Infact you can also get paid when they buy other products after entering through your portal.

If someone looked to buy a $10 book ( 10% commision to you) and kept trolling to end up buying a home Gym at $10,000 your commission is looking good.

All that seems pretty exciting but where do you start and what are the downsides.
The best way is to get some basic training.
Amazon has a university-based around how to market their products. It is quite inclusive and will get you up and going. I use Wealthy Affiliate as my go to training on all things Affiliate. It is free to join and teaches everything from start to money.

The downsides of Amazon affiliate

First of all the commissions are on the low end of the scale. You can not achieve any degree of return selling low-value products.
Furthermore, if you don’t continue to obtain sales you get dropped as an Affiliate.
The rules are very strict and easy to break with consequences that are deadly.

What other affiliate programes are available

I will show you how to find any number of programes shortly but let’s look at some local examples on a big scale.

I am sure you have been approached with a Health fund upgrade to a better deal. There are companies that specialise in this.

Affiliate marketing Australia
Deal for them

What happens is they become an affiliate for all providers. If they find a better deal they switch you and they get paid. Huge business and slick performers.

Insurance is another big one as they play one against the other.
Most noteworthy is that there is nothing wrong with this as they do provide a service and often give good advice and save you money.

First of all you need to learn the basics

The Wealthy Affiliate is a service based on training and website hosting. You will need a website for anything you do plus an understanding of Keywords SEO and page building.
Although based in Canada it has a worldwide reputation and we have many users here Down Under.

Furthermore, you can recommend their product and get paid which is a further bonus. I have been involved for about 5 years and host about a dozen different sites

Recurring billing products are the big winner

When you sell a subscription service that is billed every month and you enjoy a share of the billing you have a long time income.
You can also build a base of customers all getting billed every month and thus build a regular monthly income. Incomes in the tens of thousands a month are possible.
What’s more you can automate a lot of what you do so you don’t need to be permanently attached to a screen.

Wealthy Affiliate is such a product and you can read countless genuine reviews about successful affiliates earning the big bucks.

OK, my promise delivered

So you want to find a bundle of Affiliate programmes.
Go to google, pick a subject, let’s say shoes as an example , type in Shoes Affiliate and up will pop all sorts of opportunities. More than you could ever imagine.
The market is huge, the opportunities endless and they are waiting for you.

However do nothing until you have some basics.
Companies want affiliates that show promise and have a way to market their program. Most often a Website and knowledge of marketing.

You join for free, get a website for free, endless hours of training and a web forum .

Not to mention online support, and backup at any time. well worth a look

Do you really need a website to be an affiliate

The answer is no depending on what you want to do. Therefore you seek opportunities locally.
I also work in the telecommunications space and recommend an On hold message service, Live Answering Service, NBN service and phone system for which I receive a commission.

You can find these opportunities in your area of expertise by asking around or message me and I will give you some tips and advise.

Finally we come back to encouraging you to have the basics before we start the journey.

If you fail as an affiliate what then?

If you have the basics failing is not an option. You will get your contract cancelled if you fail to sell, cross the honesty boundries, contravene the terms and conditions or generally mess up.

Likewise, you won’t be accepted unless you show promise and the ability to market their product in a manner suitable to the supplier.

You can sell Shoes, clothing, sporting gear, machinery just about anything that floats your boat.
It is all there for the asking.

Can you make a business out of affiliate marketing

There are many people doing this for a full time living and earning in the 6 figure incomes even over the million dollars a year but it takes work.

At Wealthy Affiliate, there are many hundreds of high-income earners as there are in a lot of programs. Personally, I think Amazon is a bit hard
to make a lot of money but it is a good training ground.

You can also set up an online shop and not store a single item with every order going straight to the manufacturer.
You can buy from Alibaba the great Chinese supplier of products also delivered direct or drop ship them to say Amazon to house and market them for you.

Beware the scams in Affiliate marketing

Are there shonks in this business.
Let me warn you they are everywhere wanting to take your money.
People just like you get financially hurt with great promises of instant wealth every day.
The internet is loaded with really great marketing of products aimed to make the promoters rich.
Having some basic training may save you a later headache and financial loss.

How much work do you have to put into Affiliate marketing

The answer is as much as you want but remember effort creates rewards. You can spend an hour a day or run 12 hour days the only difference is in results.

To start go slowly and learn the basics and then grow your effort with your results.

It is however the best game in town so get moving now and reap the rewards soon.

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Business trust is the third element in the Know, like and trust of marketing and arguably the most telling of all your marketing efforts. We explain why.

If you lose their trust you lose their business.

Business trust
The Airplane in dispute

Today’s great example is Boing 737- max that has had two tragic crashes in the past months. The planes costing over $100 million each they are the premium end to the market.
China has grounded at least 100 of them sending shock waves through the market. Shares at the time of writing had dropped 10% a massive hit to the market.

Many are saying there is no problem and America airlines continue to fly them probably because there is no alternative.

Travellers are jumping off any Boing flights and panic is everywhere.

The order book of Boeing must have taken a huge hit in a Billion dollar industry.

What has Boeing got to do with your business

We want to show you how important the three pillars of know, like and trust are to your business.
Know and like are customer pullers whilst Trust adds the keeper title.


If Boeing was an unknown backyard builder, selling planes would be a great effort.
However, they have spent many years building a reliable brand and one of the best-known Aircraft companies in the world. Every one knows Boeing
We have all flown Boeing because we have come to know them as a reliable brand.


We loved the old 707 planes and the modern stories of non-stop 23 hour flights. We member when two story Boings arrived it was like another world .


Gee, it went quickly and with immediate effect. The final result will be played out over many months and our interest will be on how well Boeing respond to this.

In writing this I don’t wish disrespect in any way to the 600 odd victims of two horrendous air crashes.

Now your business and trust

It is important that you manage your Brand as tightly as you can because small problems can become huge issues.

I will give you one more example.

A popular restaurant has a bad night and receives scathing reviews on the web pages. Anyone searching for a booking will move on because of the social impact of bad press, We are all guilty of bad press effect.
Each and every complaint, valid or real should immediately be fixed. even at a cost to you. Handle the trolls with kid gloves because they have an impact. One bad review may cost you 10 or more new customers.

What can you do to maintain trust?

I watch with interest Boeing and many airlines going into denial.
Nothing to see here, move on attitude that will further hurt there cause.

From a press report today where China Airlines has suspended all flights with the Boeing 737-max8 they say that.

In its own estimates Boeing says China will need 7690 commercial jets to meet its travel demands by 2037.

That’s a whole heap of money

China’s Civil Aviation Administration said it ordered airlines to ground all 737 MAX 8 aircraft as of 6pm (local time) on Monday, in line with the principle of “zero tolerance for security risks”.
Business trust

China airlines are going all out to protect their brand while Boing continues to remain silent on any action.
This is hurting China travel and costing the economy a heap of money, furthermore, and importantly China has not had an Air Accident with this plane.

When this happens to you, however small the issue take charge and take action, You will be respected in the long run.

I am using this case as a classic situation that will unfold over time.
Boing is the leading supplier of Aircraft in the world and is now expected to lose its market dominance .

Is something wrong with the 737

“If there is a suspicion … that there’s not only something inherently wrong with 737 MAX 8 aircraft, but there are no procedures in place to cure the problem then, yes, they should either ground the plane, or there are several levels of things they could do,” the spokesperson s told AP.

Boeing said in a statement it was “deeply saddened” by the crash on Sunday, but it had no reason to pull its popular aircraft from the skies.

How is that for arrogence in the face of Disaster, they should at least shoulder a degree of concern.

Trust is the empowering factor that glues your customers to your product. When there is none or little trust in you people will march out the door.

It may be one customer or a 7 Trillion dollars worth of orders the actions are the same.

Take ownership and Take action

Another classic example of Trust

None better than my favourite Brand Nike.
Recently a Basketballer lost the sole from his boot while playing a Pro Basketball game in the US. It was widly reported in the press with pictures of a distressed player on the ground and the sloe of his Shoe rolled back.

Pass one week and I just tried to find it on Google search without instant results. It might be there but the best I got was Nike warranty to replace any faulty shoes.
Nike admitted a fault attended the problem and it passed quickly.

In conclusion treat trust with respect and act quickly regardless of your liability.

Finally you can learn a lot more about know, Like and trust with the Free training at Wealthy Affiliate. A complete Internet training package.
