Affiliate Marketing 2009 – Starting an Affiliate Marketing Business Online

Affiliate marketing is the best way for most people to start making money online. It’s that simple. Affiliate marketing takes less upfront investment, requires the least technical knowledge and often provides the quickest income stream for most people looking to start a business online and become a part of the work-at-home crowd.

Affiliate marketing is the process of selling other people’s products online – or more accurately, driving potential customers to offers presented by the affiliate programs’ owners. You don’t need to sell the product – you leave that to the professionally designed salespages already online – your job is just to get targeted people to that page.

Like any business startup, affiliate marketing success requires the investment of time and money – the more you invest of one, the less you need of the other. While affiliate marketing is one of the few businesses you can start with no money to invest, it will take more effort to get it rolling, and longer til you see a profit from it. But you can start of that way if necessary, and use some of your profits to invest down the road, making it a self-funding business opportunity.

For the best, and usually quickest results, start by setting up a blog and an autoresponder account. For best results, these should be on your own web site, using a domain name appropriate to the niche you intend to market to. Deciding on a niche can be as easy as taking any area you’re interested in, going to a major search engine and typing in the topic followed by Affiliate Program – so if you’re interested in golf, type in Golf Affiliate Program.

If you see a lot of affiliate programs in that niche, you know it’s a viable area for affiliate marketers. You’ll find that physical goods, say golf clubs or golf shoes, have a higher sales price but pay a low commission, whereas digital products like golf videos or instructional e-books pay a much higher commission rate, but have lower prices per sale.

For people just beginning their affiliate marketing business, I recommend doing 2/3 of your affiliate promotions for digital products and 1/3 for physical goods. Lower outlays for digital products usually make the sale easier to refer, but you don’t want to miss out on those occasional big-ticket sales either. Also, to stick with the golf niche, golfers buy only one set of clubs every so often, but might buy 4 or 5 different books on golfing, instructional videos, etc, every year.

Once you’ve decided on a niche to start in, booked your domain name, set up your blog & autoresponder account, and joined 3 or 4 related affiliate programs, it’s time to start adding some niche-specific content. All of that startup can be done in a few hours one afternoon, but how you’ll get your content depends on your writing ability and the ratio of time and money you have available.

If you’re an OK writer or better, consider writing your own material. Remember, the average education level online is Grade 10, so you don’t need to be a Lit major, just capable of successfully communicating via the written word. Since you picked a niche you personally were interested in, you probably already have enough knowledge to start writing your material.

If not, or if you simply don’t have the time, next best to writing them yourself is using a ghostwriter. A ghostwriter is a professional writer who can research and write articles for you on any subject for a fee. Far from expensive, such services usually go for twenty dollars an article or less, depending on the number of articles you order and what deals you can work out with them. The advantage to ghostwritten articles is that you have complete ownership of them – you put your name on as author, can claim copyright to them and have articles not available anywhere else. Even in the offline world, a surprising number of books are written by ghostwriters!

The first 7 – 10 articles should go into your autoresponder as an e-course, set to go out at a rate of two articles a week. Read each article and decide which affiliate program offers items most closely related to the content, and either put your affiliate link directly in the article, if appropriate, or as part of a PS you add at the bottom of it. As you get more proficient at this, you can also use an ad at the top of the e-mail, etc. Once the 10 are in the autoresponder series, use the form your autoresponder generates to add a signup form to your blog. Again, this is usually just cut and paste.

The rest of your content can now be used for blog posts. For best results, post at least one article daily or every two days. After each posting notify the various blog directories about your post, and use a free plug-in to notify the main search engines about the new post each time. For plug-ins visit the WordPress site or do a search for them, and check for blog pinging services at the same time. (Pinging is the term for notifying directories about your new blog post.) Be sure to include the major services like Technorati, MyBlogLog, StumbleUpon and Twitter in your promotional efforts as well.

Once you have your blog up and rolling, go back to the engines and search for discussion forums in your niche, such as Golf Forums. Visit a few of them to see which have the most active member base, then start helping out by answering questions people post there. DON’T advertise in your posts – that will get you banned. Most allow you to put a link in your ‘signature’, which gets added to the bottom of each post you make there. Watch to see how the most active people on the forum are formatting their signatures, and use a similar format. Link to your blog, not to specific affiliate offers.

Next, do a search for other blogs in your niche and visit those on the first few pages of results. Read their posts to get a feel for what’s working in your niche, and leave valuable, relevant comments. This helps to get your name out there in your niche, helps to establish your reputation as knowledgeable in the field, and in most cases gives a link people can follow back to your blog. It can even help your blog’s positioning in the search engines, since some enlightened bloggers use the do-follow & CommentLuv plugins, which means the link to commenter’s sites is indexable by the search engines.

Also, if time permits, submit some original articles to the various article directories. Again, there’s a link in your signature (called the Author’s Resource Box on many article sites) that people can use to find your blog, and you’re getting more 1-way links back to your site for the search engines to follow. Articles you write yourself or have had ghostwritten can usually be submitted as is, since they’re unique articles you hold the copyright to.

These are the basic steps to an affiliate marketing business online; you’ll repeat these same steps over and over as your business grows. As time progresses you’ll want to add in more advanced steps, like direct solo ads to your lists, adding podcasts (audio recordings) and videos to your blog and your promotional efforts, etc. But before you jump into those, be sure you’ve got the basics down pat and have your blog well established, both in terms of content and links to it from every related source you can think of. And never pass up a chance to get more targeted people on your e-zine list – that list is where the bulk of your affiliate marketing income will come from in the long run!

Building Your Own Computer – Save And Be Happy

Building your own computer can be fun but before you do begin, the one question you must answer is what is the machine going to be used for? You will need to buy the parts selected on that need, the size of the motherboard, the CPU requirements, power supply, hard drive capacity and so on.

Anything that is a memory hog such as graphics, movies,will need more expensive cards and chip sets. If on the other hand your computer will be for more basic tasks such as word processing your computer design will require much less powerful chip sets.

Design work, animation graphics and sound file manipulation with MIDI controllers are advanced applications that would be more for the very experienced computer user who is familiar with the technical savvy to put it all together.

Basic parts mean less money and you can build a really good computer for much less than you would pay for a commercial version.

Should You Use Salvaged Parts?

Should I use the motherboard from my old computer? In a word no. Computer technology is advancing so fast you want to install the latest upgrades that are part of your initial design including The CPU, memory chips and power supplies. Your old computer could find a new home in schools which will take them or some charities will accept them.

Another reason is that parts from your old computer are not usually a good idea to consider due to the simple fact they are old. With lots of use these parts become weak with a much shorter service life and may not be compatible with your new computer design. Computers aren’t known to have a long service life so just avoid a problem in the first place.

If your computer is less than say 2 years old you could salvage the hard drive and place it as a backup or secondary drive to your C drive. If the CD drive and your DVD players are still good and will meet future needs you can save a little money and install in your new machine.

Getting The Parts You Need

Your parts list will be determined by the design you decided on in step one. This where you select the type of motherboard, CPU, sound cards, graphics, DVD players or CD players that you want. The first two items mentioned will be the primary decision for power and memory all the rest are add on to the basic design which make up the total. If your old CD and DVD players are compatible this is where you add them to your list.

Which particular brand of CPU you use such as an Intel or an AMD unit is one of personal choice either one has no advantage over the other.

There you have the basics to build your computer the next step is to install and hook everything up and with a little luck it should all come together.

Shedding New Light On Saturn’s Strange Spin

Determining the rotation rate of Earth’s three rocky terrestrial planet sisters — Mercury, Venus, and Mars — is a relatively easy task for planetary scientists to undertake. However, gas-giant planets, such as Jupiter and Saturn, are much more problematic because they both lack measurable solid surfaces, and are also heavily shrouded by thick, obscuring cloud-layers that hinder direct visual measurements by space probes. In contrast, the solid, inner terrestrial planets only require the measurement of the time it takes for a surface feature to rotate back into view again. The enormous, beautiful, ringed gas-giant, Saturn — the second largest planet in our Solar System after the behemoth, Jupiter — presents a monumental challenge to planetary scientists because different parts of this lovely sphere of hydrogen and helium rotate at different speeds, whereas its rotation axis and magnetic pole are aligned. However, in March 2015, a team of planetary scientists in Israel announced that they have devised a new method that promises to determine Saturn’s rotation period, and also offers insight into the mysterious internal structure of this giant planet, the myriad secrets of its formation, and its strange weather patterns.

The new method was worked out by Dr. Ravit Helled of the Department of Geosciences at the University of Tel Aviv’s Raymond and Beverly Sackler Faculty of Exact Science and Dr. Eli Galanti and Dr. Yohai Kaspi of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science. The new method is based on Saturn’s measured gravitational field and the very unusual fact that its east-west axis is shorter than its north-south axis. The research was published in the March 25, 2015 issue of the journal Nature.

The Saturn System

The giant planet Saturn is circled by a host of bewitching moonlets of sparkling ice, as well as 62 known moons. However, Saturn is most famous for its remarkable system of beautiful and magnificent rings, which are actually collections of a multitude of icy bits, fragments, and chunks, that range in size from smoke-size frozen particles to boulders as large as a hotel. These orbiting, twirling, frozen objects gravitationally interact with one another, and bounce around together to create a mesmerizing dance around their planet. The frigid chunks of ring-material are also influenced by Saturn’s magnetosphere — which is defined as the region of a planet’s magnetic influence. The icy bits of ring-material are also influenced by Saturn’s larger moons.

Saturn’s rings are divided into 5 main components: the G, F, A, B, and C rings, that are listed from the outermost to the innermost. However, it is somewhat more complicated than this because the primary divisions must be further subdivided into thousands of separate ringlets. The A, B, and C rings can be easily observed because they are very wide. However, the F and G rings are slender, thin, and ethereal — which makes them very difficult to observe. There is also a sizeable gap between the A ring and the B ring, which is called the Cassini Division.

The many moons of Saturn are fascinating small worlds. Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, is the second largest moon in our entire Solar System — after Ganymede of Jupiter. Veiled in a dense and obscuring blanket of orange fog, Titan is known for its bizarre clouds of methane, and its hydrocarbon seas and lakes. Titan’s thick, strange rust-colored atmosphere is composed of a remarkable icy concoction of compounds that are thought to be similar to those that were present in Earth’s primordial atmosphere. Although Titan’s atmosphere is much thicker than that of our own planet, it is composed primarily of nitrogen — just like Earth’s. However, Titan’s atmosphere also contains greater amounts of “smoggy” chemicals such as methane and ethane — and the smog on Titan is so dense that it actually rains “gasoline” down on to the surface of this weird and tormented moon-world. Some of the chemicals present in Titan’s atmosphere might nurture primitive, simple tidbits of methane-based life. Life as we do not know it may inhabit this strange and alien distant moon. However, there is currently no evidence for this — Earth is the only planet that we know of that hosts life.

In addition, there are other icy, mid-sized moons that circle around this enormous ringed gas giant planet. Rhea is Saturn’s largest icy moon — the second-largest moon inhabiting the Saturn system, after Titan. Iapetus, the third largest of Saturn’s moons, is known for being two-faced — one side of Iapetus is composed of sparkling, gleaming, very bright and highly reflective ice, while the other side is dark and non-reflective — a black region that contrasts markedly with the glistening, pristine white ice on the other side of the moon. Iapetus is larger than Mimas and Enceladus, which are two other mid-sized moons of Saturn. There is a huge impact crater on Mimas, and it is certainly the most prominent feature on what is apparently a mercilessly pelted and heavily cratered little moon-world. The gigantic impact crater dubbed Herschel on this 400-kilometer moon was blasted out by a crashing object from space composed of rock, ice, or both, that almost powdered it. Enceladus also is an intriguing little moon-world, 500-kilometers in diameter, that likely contains a global subsurface ocean of water beneath its frozen, frigid crust of ice. Where there is liquid water, there is the possibility — though by no means the promise — of life as we do know it to exist. Enceladus also shows the highest albedo of any other moon in our entire Solar System — meaning that it has the brightest and most highly reflective surface. It also has a very active geology, which has caused it to be almost entirely free of craters. This is because it is being constantly resurfaced by the material that erupts from its gushing icy geysers that are responsible for a fresh snow that keeps the surface of the little moon smooth and bright!

Some theories propose that the Saturn system started out with several large moons that were similar to the four large Galilean moons of Jupiter — Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. Alas, some highly destructive and weird occurrences disrupted the Saturn system that shot its large moons onto a collision course, whereby they blasted into one another, wreaking havoc. According to this scenario, there were a few dramatic mergers between moons, forming the large, tortured moon Titan — however, there was also a large amount of moon-material left over from the collisions to form the icy mid-sized satellites of Saturn — Rhea, Dione, Tethys, Enceladus, Iapetus, and Mimas.

Until 2004, no spacecraft had paid a visit to the gigantic ringed-planet for more than twenty years. Pioneer II had obtained the very first up-close and personal images of Saturn when it zipped past it back in 1979. Voyager 1 had its own close encounter about a year later, and in August 1981 Voyager 2 had its fleeting — but successful — meet-up with Saturn.

At last, on July 1, 2004, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft entered Saturn-orbit, and started collecting some truly breathtaking and revealing images of that planet and its many mysterious and bewitching moons. Although Saturn superficially seems to be a calm planet, Cassini revealed that looks can be deceiving. In fact, Cassini managed to successfully image the “Great Springtime Storm” that raged through Saturn in early 2011. NASA announced the discovery of this huge, whirling tempest on October 25, 2012. The ferocious vortex showed an enormous cloud cover as large as our entire planet.

Shedding New Light On Saturn’s Strange Spin

According to the new method devised by the Israeli scientists, Saturn’s day is precisely 10 hours, 32 minutes and 44 seconds long. When the astronomers applied their new method to Jupiter, whose rotation period is already well-known, their results proved to be identical to the conventional measurement — thereby showing that their new method is both consistent and accurate.

“In the last two decades, the standard rotation period of Saturn was accepted as that measured by Voyager 2 in the 1980s: 10 hours, 39 minutes, and 22 seconds. But when the Cassini spacecraft arrived at Saturn 30 years later, the rotation period was measured as eight minutes longer. It was then understood that Saturn’s rotation period could not be inferred from the fluctuations in radio radiation measurements linked to Saturn’s magnetic field, and was in fact still unknown,” explained Dr. Helled in a March 25, 2015 Tel Aviv University Press Release. The Cassini spacecraft had measured a signal linked to Saturn’s magnetic field with a periodicity of 10 hours, 47 minutes, and 6 seconds long. This proved to be slower than earlier recordings.

“Since then, there has been this big open question concerning Saturn’s rotation period. In the last few years, there have been different theoretical attempts to pin down an answer. We came up with an answer based on the shape and gravitational field of the planet. We were able to look at the big picture, and harness the physical properties of the planet to determine its rotational period,” Dr. Helled continued to explain to the press.

Dr. Helled’s new method depends on a statistical optimization method that involves several solutions. First, the solutions needed to reproduce the ringed-planet’s properties (within their uncertainties): its gravitational field and mass. Then the planetary scientists studied this new information in order to determine the rotation period on which most of the collected solutions converged.

The mass of Saturn’s core and the mass of the heavy elements that make up its composition, such as water and rocks, are influenced by the rotation period of the planet.

“We cannot fully understand Saturn’s internal structure without an accurate determination of its rotation period,” Dr. Helled noted in the March 25, 2015 Tel Aviv University Press Release. This is because an understanding of Saturn’s composition provides important information concerning the ringed-planet’s birth and evolution in general, as well as on the physical and chemical properties of the solar nebula from which our entire Solar System emerged about 4.56 billion years ago. This swirling disk of gas and dust surrounded our Sun in its infancy, and from it all of the planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and assorted smaller bodies that compose our Sun’s familiar family were ultimately born.

“The rotation period of a giant planet is a fundamental physical property, and its value affects many aspects of the physics of these planets, including their interior structure and atmospheric dynamics. We were determined to make as few assumptions as possible to get the rotational period. If you improve your measurement of Saturn’s gravitational field, you narrow the error margin,” Dr. Helled added.

The planetary scientists want to apply their newly devised technique to other gaseous planets in the Solar System, such as Uranus and Neptune. Their new method could also be used in the future to study faraway gaseous alien worlds in orbit around distant stars beyond our Sun.
