First of all, let me tell you that I will not tell you about what is an affiliate for a long time. There are hundreds of sites that describe them. They all have their links and it’s not a bad thing either. An affiliate link can simply be a piece of code or a link given to you by a product or site. It can be pictorial or in the form of a straight link. You add that link to your site, and if a visitor to the shopping site purchases something from that site, you will receive a commission. A cookie copied to the visitor’s computer determines that that person is a customer connected to you, and its lifetime can vary between 1 month and 6 months. If you shop within this period, you will get a commission. If you buy it from another computer, another browser, or device, you cannot get a commission. The owner of this link is also an affiliate (called a branch office). Affiliates cannot issue invoices, these transactions are made by the main vendor.

The links I will give in the article are not top-secret links. I am not trying to introduce a system here. I am criticizing these types of monetization sites in general and will only share sites that work sporadically among them. I added the ones I found successful in my own way. Naturally, links have my affiliate number. After you become a member, you will receive such a number. Not all of these will suit everyone. So make your own account. These are not investment advice. Let me tell you frankly, I am not an expert or anything.

These links were previously open on my sites. I was getting a commission when they bought products by sending visitors to these places. But when I wanted to receive paid advertising, all services stopped my ads. Fortunately, I think it’s because I have a considerable payment history, they haven’t closed the account completely. I ran into someone whose account was closed. The (expert) guy who sold him his system is silent. Based on this, my first clue comes.

Tip 1: Here’s an invaluable first tip. Many people who do not know this thing that paid advertising with affiliate links will not work because of their experiences similar to the one I explained above. (PPA) When bots of sites such as Google Ads, Yandex Direct see affiliate links on the page, they immediately block the site. Even the search engine bot (crawler) pasts the penalty so that your site does not appear for at least 6 months. Even if you wake up and open a new site, these bots are smart enough to solve this in a short time and ban it as well.

Tip 2: (Secret of the masters) The thing to do is to create a list. Mailing list. I do this too. This is a secret little secret of successful side branches and you won’t find it easily for free. While there are several methods you can use to create lists, they are generally the same. Giving people something free and valuable on a page. The e-book is like a free utility. So you can persuade them to join your mailing list. There are systems such as response-0-matic, Aweber as a system. Using them, you can easily handle many jobs. If you understand a little, you can use it if your hosting provider also offers a mailing list service. But be careful about privacy, which is very important nowadays.

There is much more to write to understand the importance of the mailing list. My job is to provide you with this spark, you can continue to research it.

Tip 3: Bridge site and ads. This is a point where many people are wrong. If the main purpose of your page is to bring the prospective customer directly to the product’s site, this is defined as a bridge page and is in a category that search engines do not like. It should be avoided. There should be something on the page that provides additional added value, such as a review, criticism. Ask yourself this question. Why should the visitor come to my site when they can go to the real product site. If you don’t have the answer to that, then you have a hyperlink site.

As the number of advertisements, put a maximum of 2 ads on the page and they should not be positioned in a way that makes the main article difficult to read. If you are buying paid advertising, you know that every page is controlled both visually and algorithmically by working people. The main idea is that the page is useful. Think of yourself as the person who came to that page. If there is something to annoy you, such as pop-up windows popping up from right to left every 2 seconds, a full-page signup form that pops up on the screen when you move the mouse, ads popping up right under the mouse, forcing the ad blocker to close, you are on the wrong track. Search engine companies also see what you see, and they don’t want to send visitors there.

So how can an affiliate link be used with paid advertising? If you already have a site with a lot of visitors, you can add all kinds of ads and links there and you can earn money. If you have insufficient traffic or want extra income. You can turn to PPA ads. When you get it right, it’s really profitable. Depending on the location, you can spend 1 unit and earn 5 units. Those who do not want to spend money can increase their visitors with topics such as SEO and adding content. Although this is another matter, let me say this much. SEO without spending is a truly specialized subject and it is constantly changing. There is also an article about it.

Returning to the main question, an affiliate link can be used in paid advertising as follows. Although I think it is a little dangerous, it can work. If your link goes directly to the real site, you can insert it in the ad. Adding your affiliate code as a tracking link is also a recommended method. You are not adding a page in between. You are not redirecting to your site. The problem here is that if the content of the target site changes, you are not in control. It may sell illegal things, and your advertising account will be closed. Or he can remove the product you are selling and put something else on the page. In this case, your link will not be able to write to work and you will spend money in vain. Also, although a link such as https://sellersite.xxx/?aff=1234 does not cause any harm, you will advertise the seller without recognizing your user. 

Note: Sellers do not want your ad to appear on searches made with their names. They are also right in this because they must have taken a lot of trouble and expense to promote their brand. They will not want you to easily get a share of it either. You can avoid these problems by adding the name of the seller brand, the domain name as a broad-matched negative word to your ads so they don’t close your account.

Tip 4: The so-super affiliates called retain user control. In other words, these people must first become members of their system. Thus, in case of a dispute with the seller site, someone else can recommend the site to these members.

Tip 5: Traffic does not mean sales. The paid ones are also dry noise. Even if a lot of visitors come to your site, they will exit after 1 minute. These are people who click on your link for money and do not even look at the page. Many are even automatic bots. Don’t spend money on these. Don’t believe their garish advertisements either. Older systems such as traffic exchange and ad exchange may work, but try to free them before spending money. Read their comments.

How can you make money as an affiliate? I must say that this is not easy, although there are many ways. You can find many sites on monetization. Americans (US) seem to be the master of this business. With the advantage of their mother tongue, they sometimes play word games as if there is a secret formula and only they know it. I used to think they were millionaires, all happy. There are sites of such preciousness everywhere.

I wasted a lot of time and money trying to figure out what they were trying to do. I have tried many different methods. I bought packages. I couldn’t even get what I spent, let alone earning money. There were times when I thought there was a problem with me. Sometimes I have come across others who have the same problems. Now I’m sure the problem isn’t with me, it’s with these guys. They always turn the same word and try to sell you something. In fact, they don’t share some secrets that will really make money. Of course, it is possible to browse many sites, hang out on forums, catch some tips and make a system out of them, and understand the market. But how do we find useful ones among so much false and incomplete information and noise? 

There is a vicious circle of monetization sites. I know because I have visited such sites a lot, and I searched for the right system. The story always proceeds approximately like this. Usually, there are multicolored text, money, and wealth-themed pictures at the top of the page.

Increasingly low promises tell you how easy it is to earn money, Ferrari and all, but first, you need to buy their own products for only $ 19.99 (actually $ 149.99 but on sale for a short time). It is not a huge amount of money, but seeing this will be a little disappointing. You’ll still read on. They share their own checks, how they failed before, they don’t want you to experience the same failures, etc… In fact, they claim that they give some very valuable reports for free with the package. At the bottom, of course, there will be testimonials. “Ah … I wish I had found such a perfect system sooner. Thanks to you endless. blah blah … “If you are finally convinced and you get the package, you’ll get a ton of pdfs in your mailbox. When you open the word “start here” and read it, you see that it asks you to become a member of many more places. These places are the places that make money for that person. But not to you. Things get forked as you continue to read. It turns into a cycle with an indefinite beginning. You will be left in confusion. My advice is to go from free sources whenever possible. It may be that you have to spend money, but understand what you are getting. Example: One hosting service, one domain. These are tangible things. But do not buy the unclear pdf file just because they praise it so much on their site. In fact, run away from there. Probably their intentions are not good.

You cannot immediately earn money by signing up for a system and purchasing a package. But those who sell that system to you win. They also ask you to sell so that each member you bring will earn them money over and over again. I compare systems like this to a Ponzi scheme. It is earned as long as someone becomes a member of the system. When recruiting stops, the system crashes. Because there is nothing that really adds value, that is, that can be sold.

Of course, you can sell something. But don’t sell anything you don’t believe works without using it yourself. I used everything I personally advertised myself. I do not add the ones I do not like to my links. It is not honest to do this, even if it will make money. Of course, there may not be a chance to try everything. Can’t a person without a dog sell dog food online? Of course, it sells, but how reliable would it be. (Like Dropshipping)

There is another chatter going on on monetization sites. Blog. Find your niche. Place your links in it, let the money come … blah blah blah. Their examples are always similar to each other. They say about dogs, let it be an area of ​​interest in the kitchen, such as cooking or cutting trees. For some reason, they cannot go beyond the topic of making money themselves. Because in reality, they don’t provide anything, they just sell dreams. I mean the dream of getting rich. My area of ​​interest is hosting, software, and video games. Making money is not the main concern. I am interested in making money using them. Apart from that, I am also interested in issues related to my profession, but I do not write about them.

If you are interested in making money with hosting and some internet services, you can subscribe to my mailing list. In the middle and at the bottom of this page, I have added forms to my e-mail list that you can subscribe to. This membership is free. It contains links and tips for the use of sites that I use myself and that I can really earn or think are useful. You may ask why I haven’t explicitly put them here. One of the reasons is that such links are not liked by search bots and may result in a ban on the site. I explained other reasons in the document you will receive after membership. Membership is free and you can leave later if you want.

Your first decision will have to be whether you need a paid or a free web host. With the price of plans offered by quality hosts falling down to very affordable levels, only the simplest and less popular sites should consider being hosted by Geocities, Tripod, or other free hosts. Some major differences are the number of features offered by paid hosts (like more disk space, access to multiple programming languages, databases, SSL servers, anon FTP, regular backup, guaranteed uptime, access to server configuration files like .htaccess and to raw logs and statistics), the forced ads and pop-ups required by free web space providers, better financial stability of paid companies, and the availability of technical support. In short, if you expect to spend more than couple hours making your web site, go with a paid service.

Your next big decision should be whether to choose an NT or Unix-based host. Which operating system you decide to use should depend on what features you need. For example, if you are already using IIS, ASP, VBScript, Microsoft SQL Server, or Visual InterDev, and you don’t have the time to learn Unix-based solutions, you should choose a Windows NT or Windows 2000-based host. Linux- and FreeBSD-based operating systems and Apache Web servers are most common among web hosting companies because of their good track record of stability and performance and because they are free.

There is usually no need for the operating system of your computer to match that of your web host. If you use Windows XP on your home computer, there is no reason you can’t use a host that runs its servers on Linux.

Next, you should calculate how much disk space your site will need. A vast majority of sites that don’t have tons of graphics, sound and video clips or downloadable files easily fit in 50 MB of disk space. You should always leave yourself some room for growth or check if the host has a bigger plan in case you need to upgrade.

Your next calculation should be how much data transfer you will need. You can estimate your needs by looking at your average page size (including graphics!) and multiplying it by the number of page views you expect to have in a month. For example with an average page size of 50 KB, and around 2000 page views per day, you will transfer an average of 3 GB per month. You should get a plan with 4 to 5 GB of data transfer limit per month, so you don’t have to worry about overstepping your account’s limit, which may cause extra per GB transfer charges. If your calculations or your previous experience show that you can expect over 50 GB in transfer per month, you should look into getting a dedicated server.

The more I use WordPress, the more I love it. It has 2 very important features that Blogger doesn’t yet support.

Number 1, you can set up WordPress to automatically ping all the RSS and blog feed directories every time you make a post. This is a very powerful feature if you want your blog to get a lot of traffic right away. On top of that, you’ll be quickly developing backlinks to your blog almost automatically.

Think about how long it can take you to build a regular site, get the search engines to index it, get backlinks to improve your listings, and then start getting traffic. A blog like WordPress can do all that “grunge” work for you automatically.

We often get asked by affiliates about how to successfully deal with affiliate programs. There are many ways – and different Internet “gurus” will give you different answers.
Here are the top seven tips that our top consulting editors normally give:
1. Make no mistake about it – merchants and Internet marketers are in business to make money for themselves. They are not interested in helping you to take cash away from them. Their mission is to make as much money as they can – and to give away the minimum they have to. Many merchants and marketers use “tricks” and “tactics” to ensure that they always get the best out of the deal.

Announcements like this appear in newspapers, flyers stuck onto utility poles, and even shul parsha sheets. They seek to be offering intriguing business propositions that could provide either the answer to all your problems or a healthy supplementary income. You may hear of them via e-mail, a friend or relative, or an old-fashioned letter in your mailbox. For many frum people, pressed for time, money, and school bills, they appear attractive. But what do they really offer?

Most such schemes are by definition frauds (both in the legal and halachic sense), and the only way of profiting by them is by others losing. Those that are not clear frauds are suspect in some other way, and should be avoided by a ba’al nefesh.

The schemes fall into three categories: Ponzi Schemes, Pyramid selling, and Multi-Level Marketing (MLM). Lets look at each of them in turn.

Affiliate and other cooperative programs are announced almost
daily. Website owners are flocking to these programs. Enthusiasm
is high. But………why not compare and evaluate first?

The following checklist was prepared from the point of view of one
seeking a program to affiliate with. But it can also help a program
initiator compare current programs in order to make his better.

A. Does the Program Offer a Strategic Fit to Your Business?

1. PROGRAM PURPOSE – Define in broad terms
2. COMPLEMENTS YOUR PURPOSE – Does it help you better
realize your website long-range goals?
3. VISITOR LEARNING – Are your visitors interested and will
the
program help them learn?

B. Do You Trust the Business Initiating the Program?

4. SUCCESS – Does the business have a history of successes?
5. BELIEVABLE ADVERTISING – Does it promise impossible
rewards: get-rich-quick and MLM schemes? Or is it honest and
realistic?
6. REPUTATION – What does the business literature tell you about
their past operations?
7. WHAT CLIENTS SAY – Contact current clients and ask for
their opinions. Would they recommend this business
organization? Are they benefiting from it?

C. Is the Program Well Designed?

8. AFFILIATE QUALIFICATIONS – Are they signing up
everyone? Or are they being picky? Picky is better.
9. AFFILIATE RESPONSIBILITIES – Better, too, if there are
specific responsibilities. Are affiliates asked to do
promotion, communication with customers, sales?
10. INITIATOR RESPONSIBILITIES – Does the outfit offer help
in promotion, sales and after-sales support?
11. PAYMENT & TERMS – Is there a fee or commission
structure? How frequently are payments made? Does affiliate
get credit for future sales?
12. TRANSACTION TRANSPARENCY – How frequently are
transaction reports made? Are transactions independently
checkable by the affiliate? Is there a third-party audit?
13. CONFLICT RESOLUTION – Is there a SIMPLE method for
resolving conflicts?
14. RETURN TO SITE – Is there a simple way for a website
visitor to return to the site of the affiliate after a
transaction is executed?

D. Will You be Part of a Community?

15. COMMUNICATION MEDIUM – Does the program have a
newsletter, a mailing list, a forum, or some other means of
communicating among all affiliates?
16. AFFILIATE DECISION-MAKING – Does each affiliate have
a voice in making decisions that affect all affiliates?
17. MUTUAL PROBLEM SOLVING – Is there a method whereby
affiliates can pose problems and have them solved by the
affiliate community?- – – – – – – – – – – –

Be extremely careful when evaluating an affiliate program. Most
people dwell on the financial arrangements. These are important, of
course. But more important, I believe, are efforts made to achieve
community. These efforts may bolster your ability to achieve
greater financial goals.

Spend time in evaluation. It will pay off in the long run.

Affiliate Program is a ground floor opportunity. All you have to do is send visitors to your affiliate web site by placing a textlink or banner on your website and receive a commission on each sale, without the complication and expense of selling anything yourself.

Instead, you earn a commission for producing a ransaction. Affiliate programs, also known as Referral Programs, Associate Programs, Profit Sharing Programs or Reseller programs, give affiliates the ability to create an online business selling thousands products and services.

One of the first affiliate programs was run by the mega- bookstore , Amazon.com. They still have the largest base of affiliates on the net although they may not be the best affiliate program for many! with over 600,000 web sites being affiliated.

Affiliate programs are generally offered by sites selling goods or services, although some affiliate programs reward other types of transaction such as getting a visitor to sign up for a free newsletter, or a download.

Some affiliate programs pay per lead rather than per sale, in other words, you bring them a prospective customer and they pay a fixed “finder’s fee” for the chance to market to that customer.

This is a typical arrangement for affiliate programs in the insurance, real estate and credit card industries, for example:

Types of Affiliate Programs

Pay per sale: If you refer a visitor to the online merchant’s site and if visitor makes a purchase you get a percentage of the sale as commission.

Pay per lead: You get paid a one-time fee for generating a lead for the merchant. Usually you get paid $2-$5 if the visitor you referred fills out an application.

Pay per click: You get paid for every visitor you send to the online merchant regardless of any sale or purchase. Usually companies pay $0.05 – $0.15 per click.

Two-Tier: You get commission on direct sales you generate and also you get commission on sales generated by affiliates you recruited. Usually companies pay 25% commission for direct sales and 5% for sales generated by your affiliates.

Bounty: You get a one-time finder’s fee payment for the visitor you referred. You will not get commission on any future purchases that customer makes.

When you join an affiliate program, you will be given a specially formatted URL (Links) that you should use to link to the affiliate provider’s site.

This will enable the affiliate provider to monitor traffic to your site and pay according to the type of affiliate program.

The Benefit of an Affiliate Program

Is that you just need to drive traffic to your affiliate site. Write a few articles and provide a few links.

You don’t need to find or deal with brokers, wholesalers, inventory, process orders, shipping & handling, customer service, tech support, handle returns, warranties, employees, etc-

An affiliate doesn’t even have to be present, your site will keep earning money while you’re sick, on vacation, or just doing something else.

Another advantage of being an affiliate, is that you do it from almost anywhere in the world..

How The System Works?

Many affiliate programs pay a commission based on a percentage of the revenue generated by purchases made by visitors coming from your website.

For example; if you’re participating in an affiliate program that offers a 25% commission and you

send a visitor who purchases US$100 worth of products, you’ve just earned US$25 in commissions.

The commission rate itself can vary from 20% up- to 50%+ in the case of intangible products such as eBooks or website subscriptions.

Affiliate programs vary widely in terms of overall quality, reliability, commission , statistics, the amount of help that the merchant site offers in marketing the products or services it sells, and so on.

By thoroughly understanding an affiliate program, you’ll minimize the risk of not getting paid – and maximize your potential earnings.

Hosting affiliate is the most profitable type of affiliate on the internet. Because every site has a hosting service, what it needs. Here is the our updated Hosting Affiliate list.

When people decide to join an affiliate program to make extra money, or to have a full time job, they often do so with illusions and no idea of how the affiliate program actually works. Read the following top 5 mistakes people make when it comes to choosing an affiliate program and avoid these mistakes at all costs. Then, you will be able to be more effective and make more money for your time, so it is definitely worthwhile to read these warnings and avoid them.

#1 Don’t Compete, Support
Too many affiliate programs compete against their competitors which wastes money and puts affiliates out of business. However, if you are part of an affiliate program the more affiliates the better for getting more information and more money. One of the worst things to do is choose an affiliate program that believes in competing against other affiliates. Instead, choose an affiliate program that agrees with supporting and growing other affiliates to have a larger network and access to more affiliates.

#2 Little Reward
Another mistake people frequently make when choosing affiliate programs is choosing a program that offers little reward for the individual’s hard work. Too many affiliate programs pay too little and as a result affiliates find it difficult to make the money they should be making. Look for an affiliate program that has a good pay rate for your work.

#3 Old Statistics, if Any
You want an affiliate program that offers good, solid, real time statistics, not old statistics or ones that are no longer valid. There are not many affiliate programs out there that provide the kind of statistics an affiliate manager needs, but do your best to find an affiliate program that offers the most.

#4 No Support
Too often affiliates find themselves waiting days for an answer to an e-mail and an important question for their business. You want an affiliate program that guarantees you support round the clock if possible or at least within 24 hours. If not, keep looking for an affiliate program that wants to help you help yourself.

#5 Fresh Ideas, Creatives
Many affiliate programs provide few ideas or creatives to their affiliates and so thousands of web pages end up with the same advertising. However, affiliate programs would have a better success rate if many different ads were made available so affiliates could alternate ads and place different ads on different sites, depending on the products sold.

Commit these five mistakes to memory so you know exactly what you are looking for in an affiliate program, as well as what to avoid. You will be much more successful and happier as well if you do not get caught in these traps!
