Residual Makes a Huge Difference

Yesterday we were talking about why you must choose the
RIGHT affiliate programs and how choosing the wrong
program(s) to promote can literally spell out the difference
between success and failure. In fact, many people who would
have succeeded in affiliate marketing did not succeed simply
because they chose the wrong programs to promote.

Let's get into this idea a little further today.

One of the reasons we determined that give a good
program to promote is that they pay out a lion's share of
the commissions to affiliates. $20.00 out of a $24.95 sale
getting paid to the affiliate is pretty good terms, right?

As an affiliate, you need to work with companies that put
YOU first. After all, you're the one driving the traffic to
their site and they don't have a lot of risk since they only
pay you when you generate a sale. But a lot of affiliate
programs don't understand that. In fact, many programs out
there are paying 5-15% commission on products they should be
paying you a lot more for.

But there is another extremely important factor that
determines success or failure as an affiliate marketer. That
is whether or not the company pays you one time or pays you
residual income for a single sale. This is a big factor you
need to consider before you join any affiliate program.

If someone was promoting products from affiliate programs that
only paid him one time for a sale, he'd still need a job
somewhere else to cover my basic living expenses. But we
realized from day one that we needed to work exclusively
with programs that paid residual income.

On the Internet, residual income is basically selling a
"subscription service" so that when someone buys the product
you get paid up-front one time and then each month when that
person's subscription renews with the company, you get paid
every month for as long as that person continues using the service.

To My Loving Wife

I met an old friend recently. While enjoy our coffee, he tell me a story; there's one man who have just checked-in into a hotel room at Kuala Lumpur. Since there's a PC, he immediately make use of it to send an e-mail to his wife back home in Penang. However, he wrongly wrote the e-mail address.

Somewhere in Texas, a woman just reached home after a husband funeral. She on the PC and was surprised to find out there's an e-mail from her husband. After reading it, she fainted.

Subject: I've reached.

Date: 10th March 2009

Become a Leader

There are hundreds of mails came in to my box everyday. Until I just can't open up eyes to read all those mails. Of course there are some important mails, but the rest are from the IM around the globe in trying to convince me by either buy their products or join-in their programs. And I'm sure you guys face the problems like me.

However, there's one mail that caught my eyes. It says stop promoting your business or program directly! Ahhhaa...this is not only something different but it's real different from the rest.

There goes the truth is, nobody cares about joining any programs or business because everybody is already promoting their own. Instead it is advise to help others build their program or opportunity.

The facts that 97% of home business fail and only 3% succeed. So, if you want to get the result that almost no one else gets, it's says you must do what almost no one else does. Do the opposite way!

The 97% are failing because they are all trying to convince others to join their business, then you need you need to do the opposite of almost everyone else; i.e. to help others to build their business.

For the moment, forget about yourself and forget about your business. Just focus on helping the same people who are trying to 'sell' you.

Train them to build their business, and once you help them, the money will come back to you on the backend. So become one of the the Top 3% and be a leader.

Clickbank Hit By Tsunami

When Gobala Khrisnan and Zamri Nanyan launch the rahsia.clickbank last week, the Malaysian IM was not only hit by storm but they are all drifted by the tsunami to the Clickbank.

My mail box keep in pouring with mails from all the IM offering the special additional bonus for me to buy the e-book through them. Anyway, I should say thank you to all of them with their effort of getting the buyer.

I very happy for them especially for those who claimed to have earn 4-figure and 5-figure income. Even though I'm 0-figure income in this clickbank, I'm still happy as I still have my 10 figures and still be able to punch the PC motherboard day and night.

At the moment I'm in no rush to promote any affiliate products. If you can see my blogs are all empty without any affiliation. But in a matter of time, I'll be earning that sort of income.

How? Just keep following my posting.....

Hello blogger

Hello blogger all round the world. I'm here to start blogging on what is the actual Trail Blogging. First of all I'll follow all my friends blog and start putting up my comment what is good and what is not. I don't mean to offend anybody but I'm putting it right so that blogger don't just blogging as what they like.

As for the Internet Marketed, I would wise if you all could be very honest in your business transactions. You don't just like to offer anybody in the 'net with something hidden behind your sleeve.

I really doesn't like when you offer something like the word f.ree. If you want to give it free...just give it FREE. It's not f.ree or or anything that's not relevant at all.

Please be honest and direct to the point in what you offer. For one thing for sure that we are not stupid as what you might think.

Okay! I hope you get the clear message.
