“Use Social Networking Sites for Your Promotions”

Here's something that you absolutely need to know about affiliate marketing: You have to promote yourself, your website and your products in every way possible. twitter-waves2

Here's something else you need to know: You can do a lot of this for absolutely nothing. Simply harness the power of social networking and you'll find that in this case, it's the free stuff that’s the best stuff.

Social networking is connecting with other people all over the world who share some common interests and goals. Websites such as Twitter, Hub Pages, LinkedIn, Google Knol, Facebook, and Squidoo make this possible.

The reason that social networking works so well when it comes to affiliate marketing is that it's free, but it’s also because people flock to it. People love to meet new people, learn new things, try new things and have new opportunities. Social networking can bring people from all walks of life and from all corners of the earth together.

When you participate in social networking as an entrepreneur, you’re able to both seek out and attract people to you who are interested in what you're doing and in your product and opportunities. You don't have to force anything. You don't have to chase anyone around - because social networks are full of people who are looking for someone like you.

All you have to do is position yourself properly, do some work, and create your own reputation as a trusted and knowledgeable expert and you'll find that the social networks do the rest of the work for you.

My suggestion to you regarding social networking is that you give a fair amount of your time and energy to this activity because it has the potential for bringing in real profits for your efforts.

On each of the social networks that I’ve listed above, you’re allowed to promote your business freely, and although you would never want your social networking to be only about your business, people welcome entrepreneurs with open arms on social networks.

What seems to work very well for marketers is to join several social networking sites, promote their own business, but also be friendly, helpful and encouraging to others in their endeavors.

This gives you a reputation for being one of the “good guys,” and people like that. They like to deal with people who are interested in them and interested in building good relationships, not only in making a fast buck.

Learn about social networking. Learn to take advantage of all social networking can offer to you as a way to develop your own brand and move your business forward by leaps and bounds. You won't regret one moment of the time or energy it takes, and you'll be thrilled that it's completely free!

“Google Adsense for Domains”

If you’re a true online entrepreneur you probably have a few domains that you’ve purchased with the thought of developing a website, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Like a kid in a candy store it’s easy to get a “lightbulb moment” for a new site, buy a domain, and then run out of time when it comes to putting it all together and up and running.

Well, Google wants to help with all that unused real estate. If you participate in their Adsense program where you run related ads on your website they also have “Adsense for Domains”. Now that this is a new program, it’s been around for awhile but now Google has made it easier to use. It allows you to run Google ads on those domains, and possibly make some money while their sitting collecting dust. google-512

All you need to do is change your domain’s nameserver to the following

As soon as the records validate, usually within 24 hours, they'll start serving ads to traffic that comes to your site.

If you need a great web host with affordable rates and tremendous customer service I highly recommend Host Gator.
