When To Start Using Affiliate Marketing Services

16 Jun

Affiliate Marketing ServicesAffiliate marketing services can speed up your development as an affiliate marketer and make your business profitable far more quickly. When you are starting out in affiliate marketing, it is best to do everything yourself at least once so that you know how it is done, and so that you can give proper detailed instructions to anyone you outsource work to. The key to reinvesting your money successfully is to free up time you were spending on mundane routine tasks, so that you can spend more time on the tasks which will take your business forward.

There is one service which an affiliate marketer needs above all others, as does anyone who wants to create their own products, and that is an autoresponder service which can collect the names and email addresses of prospects and buyers. Research has proven that very few buyers make the buying choice on the first exposure to the offer, and if you send the prospect direct to the vendor you have lost the chance to make any further contact with them. If they join your list, you can not only make further presentations of the same offer, you can promote new offers when they are released.

The building of your list is the most important part of your Internet marketing business, whether you are selling your own products or marketing as an affiliate. This can be extremely difficult to do in the early stages, as you will have no traffic coming to your squeeze pages or content driven web properties. You can buy paid traffic and drive it to these pages, but to make this viable you will need to create your own product to offer to the subscriber once they have signed up. The sales of this product need to be able to cover your advertising expenses.

Affiliate Marketing Tips

One of the other important affiliate marketing services that marketers have a consistent use for is website building. If you go on to the popular Internet marketing forums, you will find many technically capable people offering to build websites for other marketers. Having this work carried out for you obviously involves more expense, but once you are able to afford this you can use the extra time to keep finding new niches and building up your business. The alternative to using a service such as this is to use software to clone your existing sites, but this obviously limits you as to the versatility and differences of these sites.

Finally, you can use outside services to take away one of the most tedious and time consuming tasks of all, which is building back links to the sites which you already have. When you are an affiliate marketer, there is no point in building a site unless you believe that you are going to be able to drive traffic to it. You can obviously buy traffic, and there is no doubt that you should buy traffic if you have your site set up in the right way. You can make more money, though, if you are able to get pages to rank highly in the search engines, and to do that successfully back linking is needed.

Paying for affiliate marketing services at the start of your career is often difficult as there is no income coming in to pay for this. Other than your autoresponder, there is nothing which you actually need to pay for at the start. You can do all of the work manually at the start, and then when you have the income and the knowledge of how everything should be done, you can then outsource the work to other capable people. There are many capable and dedicated providers of important affiliate marketing services.

Stock Market Trading – Quarterly Result Strategy

4 Apr

Stock Market TradingThe outcome of your stock market trading efforts can greatly be enhanced if you can adopt the quarterly result trading strategy. It does not require watching the candle stick or study trend pattern on those tiny and difficult charts otherwise called technical analysis. It’s a simple strategy that works in any market, and it has been proven to work over and over again.

Look out for stocks that are already in their fourth quarter. Look up their first quarter (Q1), 2nd quarter (Q2), and 3rd quarter (Q3) reports. If the Q1, Q2, & Q3 report are impressive, buy. If the Q1, Q2, & Q3 reports are bad, don’t buy. But if Q1 is poor, Q2 & Q3 impressive watch and if possible buy with caution. The reasoning behind this is that, if the Q1, Q2, & Q3 of any firm are impressive, the probability is that the Q4 result will also be impressive. On the other hand, if the Q1, Q2, & Q3 results are poor, the probability of an Impressive Q4 report is very remote.

Based on the above premise, it is advised that investors should enter the market between the last month of the fourth quarter and before the final audited results is released to the public. After buying the stock, wait for when the final audited result is released to the public before you sell to make profit. The implication is this: sentiments always herald the release of any audited result – and more especially if the result is impressive. At such instances, market makers often create a lot of noise prior to their exit of the market. The resultant effect is that such stock price usually experience spike because some investors want to take advantage of possible payout/bonus that usually go along with impressive results. (Demand always outweighs Supply thus forcing the share price to move northward).

All said and done, its advised that investors should learn to exit the market at this point when many are buying the stock – thus obeying the golden rule of stock investment which states: Buy when others are selling, and sell when others are buying. Personally, I make sure that I sell before the date of the closure of books. The profit one can garner from the use of this simple strategy could a times be mind blowing. It’s usually more than what other investors get when the wait for dividend payout/bonus declared. All the same, once you exit the market, the next thing to do is to look out for another stock in the fourth quarter and whose quarterly meets the requirement as enshrined above and then repeat the process again and again.

This simple quarterly report approach to stock market trading is a great technique that can greatly impact on your bottom line if well mastered and practice. Try it and let me know the outcome.
