The internet has changed how we shop, obtain information, search for a career, and sometimes make money. But everyone is not aware that the net offers a very good chance to leave the humdrum of the workplace and earn a very good living by working exclusively from home. The question is, “How does one make money or more specifically, good money, online?” There are several good answers, but one very good answer is affiliate marketing.
A quick search of the many, many programs for earning money by leveraging the power of your web site’s connectivity to many others (affiliate marketing) will uncover much value, but still leaves one very big question. Which program is the best for me?
The fact is there are many affiliate marketing programs than can make money for you under the right conditions. However, one of the most difficult tasks you will face is choosing the program that really teaches you how to make money. For instance, even the most inexperienced novice sees quickly, upon researching several programs, that SEO and affiliate marketing are the keys to online income success. But most programs ask for the money before you learn how they will share the keys to this success, or guarantee that you make money.
Often, when you find a program, even a program you are very excited about, you pay dearly and then learn that the program’s written guides and tutorials seem to be in a foreign language and lack the personal touch needed to really convey the good information and tactics you must learn. This can be a big detriment toward your financial goals.
One key tactic, then, is finding programs with good online video tutorials. Such tutorials, by teaching you the “ins and outs” of affiliate marketing in multiple dimensions, are virtually secret gold mines. In fact, you may be tempted to share you newfound “gold.” But, be aware that you are just starting on a journey of making money and you don’t wish to give away too much of the gold you worked so hard to find.
Learning to make money online, through the use of the audio/visual medium, is definitely the best way to learn. The written word is only a single dimensional method of communicating. You see words without inflection, tone, volume and emphasis. These words can only convey so much. In fact, a specific word or phrase may have a different meaning to each person who reads it. And, people often misread words based upon their attention level and myriad distractions. These variations in word usage and interpretation can make a big difference in what is absorbed and gained from the lesson.
A video tutorial, however, leaves nothing to the imagination and no loose ends subject to misinterpretation. The speaker, usually visually and audibly animated, uses more than just words. He or she brings a multidimensional learning method that the written word cannot equal. The student hears, sees, and virtually experiences the teacher’s own personal enthusiasm and thus learns more via the multiple channels the speaker’s message uses to enter into the student’s cognitive learning center.
Now, armed with the knowledge that the proper video tutorial can provide, the novice can clearly see how to channel his or her enthusiasm into one or more methodologies, such as these that follow:
1. Becoming an affiliate marketing partner with several online merchants.
2. Promoting your own website’s products and services, using SEO, as well as affiliates.
3. Creating direct relationships with similar websites that don’t compete directly.
4. Selecting “turnkey” packages from major online retailers.
All of these internet marketing opportunities are potential pathways to financial success, but there are distinct differences. Though each is a unique example of how to make money online, the training methodology may be even more important than the program itself. As long as the program selected offers excellent tutorials, preferably video tutorials, the chances of real and quick success are increased. This is a key factor to observe when selecting an affiliate marketing program.
