Building Your #AffiliateMarketing Assets (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_Affiliate_Marketing
One of the biggest mistakes made by affiliate marketers when they first set up is failing to recognise that they are actually starting a #business. Consequently if you want to be #successful you need to have the right #mindset and #manage your business accordingly, not doing this is the one of the fastest roads to failure. (C) Alexandre Chambon

If you look at it from another #perspective you are establishing a #marketing company and your #websites and affiliate links are your assets which you can build to be as big as you want, you are only limited by your #time and #imagination.
There are a few steps you can take which makes you stand out from the crowd and avoid the stamp of being a “newbie” or unprofessional.

Step 1: Websites and domains

It’s important to have your own domain(s) and website(s) for several reasons. One is that you have complete control over what you choose to #promote, and what #ads and #banners you want to put on your site. You can create an eye-catching #professional #layout or have someone do it for you if that is beyond the scope of your abilities.

Secondly you are able to have your own #personalized email and you appear far more professional when you have your own domain, as opposed to having freebie hosting without a decent or keyword enhanced name. An extra #benefit is that your website and domain are assets that can be sold down the track if you choose and if you have developed them properly. You can buy a domain for around $10 and monthly hosting can start as low as $6.00 per month, so it’s well worth the small #investment.

Step 2: List building

All marketers know you need to get #traffic to your website, to click on your banners and ads to make money, no clicks – no sales. But getting traffic can be #hard work. Even when you get visitors to your site you generally only have one shot at nailing their business. What you need to do is build up a #customer list so you can get repeat visitors. You can do this by creating a signup form on your website for your #newsletter or offering a free downloadable gift or service in return for your visitor subscribing to your list. Once you have established a list you can email your customers with your offers and promotions on an ongoing basis.

Don’t just contact your list when you are selling something, try and share useful #information or advice, try and build trust so your customers will know to value what you are offering them, and buy from you when you do have a promotion. It is generally accepted that your list has a value of $1 per customer, so again another asset to nurture and build.

Step 3: Traffic

The lifeblood of affiliate marketing is traffic, but not everyone can get on the front page of #Google so where else are you going to get traffic? Unless you want to pay for it and that can be very costly.

A few methods you can explore are: writing articles, press releases, posting in forums, commenting or guest posting on #blogs, offline #advertising, and classified ads.

You don’t have to do everything at once, start off with one, master it then move on to another. It’s important to test your results, check to see which #method is most #effective and keep doing that.

Having an affiliate marketing business is all about repeating systems that work, so just make sure you develop a system first, then rinse and repeating the methods that work for you.

Why Travel Makes People #Happy (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_Travel_The_World
Some people love to #travel and others not so much. I love most every aspect of it. I like planning a #trip, deciding on the #route, what I want to #see, where I want to #stay, the #flights, in fact the whole caboodle. Then there’s the actual trip which is exciting and when it is over, travel gives you (usually) wonderful #memories. What is there not to like? (C) Alex Wong

Planning is a great time as you get to choose where you want to go, how you are getting there, all aspects of your trip, including #hotel. Today there are so many ways you can get information about the place you have chosen for your trip. For example, say you want to plan a trip to Costa Rica as your neighbors went there last year and they loved it. Certainly you can pick their brains about their #experiences there.

Then you can do your own #research. Online is a great place to start as you can look at maps, visit #blogs about the place and start planning what you will do when you get there. There are flights to book. Is San Jose the right airport for you or would Liberia be a better choice? Check with different airlines or expedia.com for the best routes and what the #price differences are. Maybe you should do some research into all-inclusive deals or general #vacation deals that include hotel and flights.

If you decide you would rather plan your itinerary yourself, then you can spend more time planning your trip. Costa Rica is well known for its beauty and there is so much to do there. You could go on a trip through a rainforest. Maybe a yoga camp? How about #car rentals? You could then #simply go wherever you want each day and not plan much at all. You could start of in San Jose and spend a night or two there to get to know the city and then hire a car and travel north to Arenal where the rainforests are and the volcano. The area is also a renowned spa town. You can either plan ahead and book hotels or just pick a place to stay when you get there – something that is usually very doable.

You could go further north west until you get to the beautiful #Pacific coast where there are lovely small towns on the coast where you can enjoy water sports, go on a trip to see the whales or the turtles, or simply #relax on one of the #beautiful #beaches.

While #Spanish is the language of the country, it is not difficult to get by with just #English. Travelling by car, you could more or less see the whole country in about two weeks and have a great time. Another plus is that it is near the equator so the weather so the weather is usually beautiful all year round. The people are nice and friendly and the country itself is spectacular and so are the flowers and the birds – they even have monkeys.

After your trip, you can spend your time looking at your #photos and re-living the great time you had there. This is just one of the many reasons that travelling is wonderful.
