Back from Austin

September 25, 2005

We are back from Austin. My family is safe. We were spared from the wrath of Hurrican Rita. You can read more about our experience on my US President blog in this post.

Hope everyone reading this is safe and may you all have a great week.

Hopefully, I will get back on track with my business by the end of this week.

If anyone is looking for me

September 21, 2005

For the next few days I won’t have much access to email. So if you are trying to contact me try reaching me at my yahoo account george manty @ yahoo .com (take out the spaces).

We have to take off to avoid hurricane Rita. We figure even they we are pretty far inland, we don’t need to be dealing with no electricity, etc. with a 5 month old baby and 4 other kids.

Hope to update you soon…

Best Affiliate Programs

September 17, 2005

Those of you out there who are affiliate marketers should really check out the Affiliate Classroom. I plan on signing up for it and checking it out in about 6 weeks when I have some free time. In the meantime, I have signed up for their affiliate program and I am very impressed.

I mentioned in an earlier post that Yanik Silver’s Instant Sales Letters practically sells itself and is a great product for Internet Marketers to sell. Yanik provides great resources for selling his products much like Ken Envoy’s SiteSell does.

Well, the Affiliate Classrom may top both of these other programs as far as what they provide affiliate marketers.

Even if you aren’t interested in promoting the Affiliate Classrom product, I strongly believe you should sign up for their affiliate program, because of the quality information they give you to help promote their product. To sign up, go over to this page, then scroll down to the bottom. Click on the Affiliate Program link and sign up for the Affiliate Classroom Affiliate Program.

It is definitely one of the best affiliate marketing programs I have come across.

They provide you with affiliate links to both their free tutorial opt-in page and their free tour. I like both of these and was introduced to the program through their free tour. In fact, their free tour sold me on trying it out. I just need to wait until I have finished work on my current business “to do” list, so I will have more time to check it out.

Anyway, I highly recommend you go sign up for their affiliate program. When you sign up they give some really good advice on making money from affiliate programs. I am sure they give even more advice in their classroom, which is why I look forward to trying it out. I will let you know what I think of the program in a couple of months or so. If you are looking for more free advice on affiliate marketing, then I suggest reading SiteSell’s affiliate master’s course, and the two articles I posted to my site the other day:

I am sure these resources will prove helpful to any of you planning on making money from affiliate programs.

Make Money Online With Affiliate Programs

September 13, 2005

I worked a little bit last night on updating the shopping cart on my wife’s site so we can get the paypal merchant account working. I should be able to get that done by next week (if I can make the time for it).

Also, I just finished adding two new articles about making money online with affiliate programs to my website promotion book site. You can read the articles here:

http://websitepromotionbook.com/make-money-affiliate-program.html
http://websitepromotionbook.com/affiliate-sales.html

I came across them after finding the Affiliate Classroom tour. Both articles give excellent advice on making money with affiliate programs.

Note about Hurricane Katrina relief shelters

September 11, 2005

My wife Jill Manty created a new blog on blogger.com last night called Alternative Giving.

Living in the Houston area one of the things we discovered is that many of the shelters are not supported by the Red Cross for various reasons including all of the red tape you have to go through to become a certified Red Cross shelter. Most of the people we know here in Houston are spending a lot of their free time helping out at the shelters. The people in this city (and probably the other cities helping out) are experiencing strain of their time and money resources.

So my wife Jill decided there needed to be a way for people outside of Texas to support these shelters that aren’t well-advertised. Jill is posting contact information about these non-Red Cross shelters so people can contact them and help them out. Check out her site at http://alternativegiving.blogspot.com/.

Affiliate Management Program

September 8, 2005

I found this website the other day called The Affiliate Classroom and boy was I impressed!

After viewing the tour I thought to myself, “Man I wish I had came up with this business, what a great idea!” It would have required a lot of start up money and/or business partners, but it is still a great online business idea.

When I have more time I think I will take it for a test run. If you have tried it out, please let me know what you think. It seems like it would be of great use to anyone promoting affiliate programs. I am very interested in finding out how useful it is.

Click here to take the tour and see what I mean…

Later.

Make Money With Google Adwords

September 5, 2005

The other day I talked about how I have made some money with Google Adwords and eBay. I realize that some beginners who are interested in making money online with Google Adwords might need a more in depth instruction manual to get a better understanding of how to do this.

If you are looking for such a manual, then I strongly recommend you go check out a book called Google Cash. Not only does this book give you step by step instructions on how to make money with Google Adwords, but it is also loaded with online videos that teach you how to do this.

I know it’s possible to make good money online doing this (since I have and still do make money using Google Adwords and affiliate programs). That is why I suggest checking out Google Cash. Especially, if you are beginner who is interested in making money with Google Adwords.

Manually upgrading Shopping Cart

September 4, 2005

I have started to manually upgrade the shopping cart (Cart32) for my wife and her friend’s baby website. Today, I printed out all the settings for the current shopping cart. Hopefully, the update will be quick. It’s too bad her web host couldn’t update the shopping cart themselves in a quicker time frame. At least I can create a new cart from scratch using the latest version of the shopping cart. This way my wife’s busines will be able to take credit cards directly from her site using PayPal’s new merchant account system. We expect this to double their sales.

Also, my parents are visiting over the weekend and my Father told me an idea for a business I could create. It sounds like a good idea, but at some point it is going to involve either getting venture capital to fund parts of it, or a partnership with another major company. I am going to investigate it more, because I believe it could be a multi-million dollar business.

That’s pretty much it for now. I have been very busy with other things lately.

I will let you kow how the shopping cart update goes.

Ebay Affiliate Money

September 1, 2005

Someone asked me how I make money from eBay. So I wanted to give you a quick overview.

The main method I have used to make money online from eBay is by running Google Adwords with my affiliate link. After Google changed it’s terms of service so that only one affiliate ad for the same domain could be run per campaign, it became much more difficult to make money from this. I am still running a few campaigns doing this and they do make money. However, when you do this you need to keep in mind the following things:

1. Run your ads for the minimum bid (5 cents)
2. Keep a close eye on the campaign, make sure the EPC (earnings per hundred clicks) is above 5.00, otherwise you will be losing money.
3. Be sure to write good and relevant copy for the campaign.
4. Target focused keywords, rather than general keywords.
5. Use eBay’s flexible destination tool to create a direct link to the products you are running the campaign for.

Currently, the way I make the most money from eBay is through the dinosaur toy store on our dinosuar site. Go check out how we are displaying the ads, using the eBay Editor kit.

That pretty much answers the question,
“How do you make money from eBay as an eBay affiliate?”

Please feel free to send in more questions.
