3 Keys That Will Unlock Your Success In 2004!
1) Analyze all your promotional efforts. Concentrate on the ones that work and drop the ones that don't. Don't waste your valuable time. For example, if you have an affiliate program that hasn't made a sale for two months, drop it or test a different ad.

Will American Businesses Ever Recover?
The economy is a crazy thing. The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 are some of data used to determine America's economic health. The values of those constituent stocks are based upon prices people are willing to pay for them. The stock price is determined by the shareholders as a prediction, or guess, in many cases, of either earnings or growth. Companies are only likely to increase their earnings or value in a "good market." But the very nature of a "good market" is determined, in part, by the *perception* of the people who value those stocks.

Network Marketing is a Relationship Business
Heavily branded websites like amazon.com are household names and carry an implied trust with visitors.

The Torn Manager
Managers often find themselves playing the role of middle-man because that is what they are… in the middle. The go-between for higher management and the workers. You can see how this can present a conflict of interests. How do you represent the views of the upper echelon and protect the interests of those who work under you at the same time? It can be done, of course, and is done every day. It's part and parcel of being a manager and goes with the territory along with a large dose of stress.

Get Information First Before Sending Them to the Affiliate
Honestly, I'm not a big affiliate fan because in the past I haven't gotten 90% of the money promised either because they disappear before they pay out or they have so many exceptions -- paying out once a quarter, has to be over X dollars first, etc. Another negative side is that some of them think that 10% commission or some low amount is worth the 20 hours it takes for us to sell it. Usually the 10% equal $10 and $10 isn't worth my reputation even $1000 actually.

It also opens the doors wide for civil litigation against a spammer, and gross amounts of cash recovery for "damages" done to the recipient.

Banner Exchanges - Are They Useful?
For those who don't know, a banner exchange is a service that offers to show your banner ad on other sites if you show their ads on your's. They often have thousands of sites in their networks so you can get your banner shown in a lot of places. They will offer an "exchange" rate - the most common is probably 2:1. This means that for every two banners you show on your site, they will show one of your's on other peoples. You can get better exchange rates such as 4:3 or 5:4.

Cracking Google's New Algorithm
Google recently made far-reaching changes to the way it ranks search results, and the search marketing community has been abuzz with tales of woe ever since. Some have speculated that the key to understanding Google's latest is that they've applied some sort of test of "commerciality" to certain phrases, roiling the waters for sites ranked well on those phrases, and leaving non-commercial phrases more or less alone. The idea is that this would cause a stampede of site owners over to the paid AdWords program, or at least making the point that Google isn't up for providing a free lunch to clever "SEO-ized" sites indefinitely.

Affiliates, Choose Your Adwords
I'll have to admit that I didn't believe all the hype about Google Adwords for the longest time. Then I caught myself clicking on some of the Adwords ads instead of the search results. That made me think. Five bucks. What's five bucks? Lunch at McDonalds. I could skip that for a day. So I surfed Clickbank for a while, found something new and really targeted, popped a few keywords in and wrote the ad. Basically, I used the sledgehammer method of marketing. Fifteen minutes later, I was getting clicks. Then I went to bed, of course. A few things I have learned. If I'm on the computer at one in the morning, I must hide my creidt card from myself. Or maybe I was wrong?
