    how does affiliate business work for me - tips and tricks
    I have never imaged that affiliate could bring me a lot of money like this. Every week I got about more than 1000$. just wanna share to you guys some tips and tricks

    1. Play around with many merchants and product, don't depend only on clickbank and comission junction . There are a lot of individual affiliate service for each company, like ebay.com or 1and1.com... but be noticed, the more it's famous, the more competive. I recommend you to find unfamous ones to deal with

    2. Don't play with pay per click but if you stil want to try, I recommend adbite, much cheaper than others like adwords but work pretty well.

    3. Prepare your affiliate link:
    + When you have a lot of links, it's not easy for you to managing them, some products are sold faster than others, keep track how your links work. Don't stupidly try to promote products that everyone doesn't buy
    + securing your links, don't let people steal your profit. It's so easy to do that. There are some posts about how to cloaking your links, try to find it yourself. But it's a lil inconvenient for you to do it manually. There are some services, some free ones like tinyurl.com, some ones you have to pay for like linkshield.com or linksnapshot.com... of cources paid ones are much better and they will have you a lot in managing how your links work, which is every important. I tried many of them but I would say that linksnapshot.com is the best with a lot of features and it's also the cheapest services.
    tip: these sevices, they have affiliate programs, you can save a lot of money by first registering for affiliate and then buying your own products.

    4. Many people would ask: so what is your way to promote your products? that is the most important things I want to share, this is the answer: writing blog, writing online articles . But the best way is particiting internet forums. If you want to sell digital products, go to large digital forums. Try to post many useful posts, be famous in these forum. So what? duh, use the signature feature. Put your links in your signature, the more you are famous in the forum, the more people will click in the link in your links. Trust me, it works very well. maybe not fast, but some days, when you wake up, check your commission, you will be very suprising. Another good things is it work for you free, without having pay any things like adwords but give much better results.

    Let's see if I got this right.....

    1.) sell products that people buy
    2.) don't sell products that people don't buy
    3.) starting with your very first post, load your sig with links to
    your sites.
    4.) get famous
    5.) use adware and parasites

    I'm on my way to the first row!!

    Sunday, I have a feeling that you mean well and I'm sure after you've been around here a while you will look back and enjoy your first post. Good luck to you. I can't wait to see what you do with your signature when the time comes.

    I do believe that Sunday has been here before. The story line looks familiar.

    Then again, is Sunday the first or the last day of the week???

    Yeah Scott. Imagine... You could be making money in this industry if you had posted 3,964 times in other forums.

    Someday you'll catch on, US. Until then, keep scraping by like you do... ;p

    You're just slow to the game, I suppose...

    But don't worry, there's still plenty of time to sell yourself out and cash in on your ethics. They might not go for as much now as they did before, but I hear email spamming and phishing schemes can pull in a bit of cash. Maybe we could go in together, and I'll design emails that look like they came from financial institutions.

    On that note, I got a great one the other day from Wachovia Bank. It said there had been a lot of login activity and that I needed to verify my ID. Funny thing is, I don't bank with Wachovia...and especially not at URL://wachovia.somejunkdomain.cc/scam/givemeyourcredentials.htm

    That URL was already dead when I checked. Still, please don't give any live links to scam sites. They don't deserve any SEO.

    So, I'm doing it backwards? I delete spam from my forum two or three times a day, and I then block the users from doing it again.

    Think we've had enough fun with this one, then?

    I'm inclined to agree.
