Making Money On The Internet
There are lots of reasons that people choose the Internet to try and make money. My thinking is that it is the purest, simplest way to communicate with people in the shortest and least expensive way possible. There is no question that direct mail has made Millions of dollars for many, many people. That holds true for the present as well as the past and will also be true in the future. The problem with direct mail ( If there is any) is that it is extremely expensive to initiate. To begin with, if you are not an experienced copywriter, you will have to hire someone to draft a sales letter for you.
Then there is the cost of printing and the cost of mailing. You’ll have to do a test mailing to determine if it will be at all profitable to do a roll out. Now, having said all of that, It brings me to the point of why I am writing this article. The question of, “What if I don’t have a product or service to sell? That is probably one of the most often asked questions by someone trying to break into the field of Direct Marketing.
Most of the so called marketing Gurus will tell you that you need to develop a product or service of your own and then sell it to a niche market such as Fishing, Sewing, Golfing or something of that nature. Anyhow, you get the picture. They all make it sound so simple and easy. But, is it really all that simple? It may be if you are a really talented and innovative person. If not. “Taint That Easy McGee”! I’ve been told that it even took Stephen King six novels before he hit the Home Run and made any money. Not only that. Think about it. While you are spending days, weeks, and months and sometimes even years developing something, you are out of the market place not selling anything. You have then effectively been eliminated from the market. All of the people out there doing the marketing have reduced their competition. Where’s the Money? The money is in the marketing.
So, what do I do now? Quit? “No Way Hosea”! Affiliate! That’s right, become an affiliate marketer. Find someone that wants help in selling his or her products. Rosalind Gardner, who I like to refer as the Queen of Affiliate Marketers, made over $437,000.00 in one year by marketing Information Products. Remember, the money is in the marketing. It’s extremely possible for you to make 40%, 50%, up to 75% or more simply by marketing the Products and services of others that have already done the up front work. There’s a wagon load of things for you to market via the Internet. Stock Trading Opportunities, Credit Repair, Free Government Money, Website Hosting, and Real Estate, You name it and It’s probably available.
Best of all, you’ve got no extra work to do. The websites, in most cases, have already been set up. The sales letters have already been written. You have no products to stock. No employees and no orders to fulfill. You will even find some MLM programs to get into if that happens to be your Cup-O-Tea. I’m not thrilled about them. Myself, I’d much rather find a good 2 Teir or Sub Affiliate Program. You can still have a hundred or even a thousand or more other people making money for you. Similar to MLM, but still different.
You can spend an unlimited amount of time searching the Internet to locate a worthwhile Affiliate Program. Spend days or weeks researching them. I know this for a fact because I’ve done it. You know the old saying, “Been there, Done that!”
Well, fortunately for you, and me. Blind luck led me to a website that has it all. At the risk of sounding like a Carnival Pitch Man, This site is like a Horn-O-Plenty! They’ve got more programs than you can shake a stick at.
There’s even an offer on there from the Rich Jerk. If you haven’t heard of him or read his book, I strongly suggest you do so. You’ll even find a 10,000 Product Catalog listed on that site.
I would venture to say that if you can’t find an Affiliate Program in there that’s to your liking, then in all likelihood, “You Gotta be Dead Fred!” Anyhow, Oh! Please, forgive me, I almost forgot, The site to go to Is: http://www.realprofitplans.com/
