Information Marketing

Information marketing simply involves selling or marketing relevant information to a target audience who NEED this information. This is one of the 3 hot business ideas in 2018 that you should consider.

Note that the information must be on a HOT topic that people really need a solution on.

You must also have a READY and HUNGRY market for it to sell.

There MUST be a NEED for the information for it to sell.

Information marketing is one of the oldest means of making money on demand and if you can master the concept then you are on your way to making money.

All you have to do is as follows:

  1. Find a PROBLEM or NEED that a LOT of people desire a solution for. It’s a game of numbers so you need to have a lot of people who need this SOLUTION

As simple as that, you will make your money. The more people you find who urgently and hungrily NEED a solution to this problem, the better for you.

The question that most people have is finding a PROBLEM that many people have.

This isn’t as difficult as it seems. There are pressing problems everywhere and all you have to do is look and you will find.

Kindly note the keywords in bold – NEED, PROBLEM, SOLUTION, READY, HUNGRY – these are they qualities you look out for when you want to create an information product to market.

In my coming training, I will be showing you how to position yourself as an expert to offer your products to your audience and have them begging to buy from you.

These 3 pillars are evergreen and if you know what you are doing, it will sell.

Topic ideas should include but not limited to the following:

  • Weight loss
  • Irregular menstruation
  • Child Birth
  • Fertility
  • Sexual Health
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Disease prevention
  • Making money
  • Business ideas
  • Dating and Relationship
  • Body building

 

The list goes on and on and on.

It is all about doing you research and picking a topic you can deal with and which has a lot of people who need a solution.

I will be showing you how to find a HUNGRY audience and how to package yourself and your information product to sell to them a premium in one of my trainings this year so stay tuned.

 

The next business idea is what is called AFFILIATE MARKETING.

 

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing remains one of my best business idea models simply because it’s highly automated. It is one of the 3 hot business ideas in 2018 you should look out for.

It is basically a set-and-go system that involves promoting a company’s products to a HIGHLYTARGETED audience and each time there is a sale, you are paid a COMMISSION.

The promoter is called the Affiliate while the establishment offering the program is the Affiliate company

As an affiliate marketer you can earn as high as 100% of the product you sell.

Some affiliate programs offer 75%, others offer 50% and some offer 30%. It is dependent on the affiliate program and the type of product.

The BEST products to promote are ones related to HEALTH and WEALTH.

These categories are EVERGREEN and forever in-demand.

Everyone wants to be in good health and almost everyone wants to make more money hence the high demand.

There are many affiliate marketing companies one can go for to promote their products.

First, you will have to register with them and add your means of receiving your payment.

Next, you will select the type of products you would love to promote.

Then decide on a means of promotion to a TARGETED audience.

You could use PAID ADVERTISING like Facebook Adverts if you have the money or buy emails from AD Vendors who have huge EMAIL LISTS of people who are interested in a particular category of products.

Your TARGET audience is usually the international market which means payments are in USD.

I will be showing you how you can receive your payments as well even from here in Nigeria.

In my coming webinar, I will be showing you how to get all these done smoothly so be on the lookout for my training on it.

Affiliate marketing programs include the following online companies:

…and many others

 

Cryptocurrency Trading

Cryptocurrency trading is one of the 3 hot business ideas in 2018 that a lot of people have poor or little knowledge of but is really one of the simplest businesses to go into.

In layman’s terms, cryptocurrencies are digital currencies. This means they are not physical and are virtual nature.

Cryptocurrencies have features which make them far better than the normal currencies you know. For one, they don’t require the use of banks and account numbers like regular monies.

Anyway, this isn’t a write up on Cryptocurrencies but the fact remains that they are highly valuable and their worth keeps increasing daily.

In fact, a unit of one of the popular Cryptocurrencies, the BITCOIN was once valued at $20, 000 in December 2017.

i.e: 1 Bitcoin = $20, 000

Another Cryptocurrency, the ETHEREUM currently has its single unit equivalent to over $400 USD.

i.e: 1 Ethereum coin = $ 400+

Read More About the Bitcoin Here

Now as far back as 2009, the same 1 unit of Bitcoin was less than 1 USD.

The figure was around 50 cents.

i.e: 1 Bitcoin = 0.50 cents

Imagine you had 5 Bitcoins in your possession from this period today.

That would be 5 X $14, 000 = $70, 000

Basically, this is what Cryptocurrency is about.

You buy when a Cryptocurrency is just introduced into the market at a low price, hold onto it, and sell when the value increases to make your profit.

This is the same principle guiding trading FOREX.

To trade in Cryptocurrencies, you will need to monitor the Coin market for promising cryptocurrencies with stable and sustainable features.

As soon as they introduced into the market in what is known as an INITIAL COIN OFFER or ICO, you buy at that low price and wait for the value to appreciate before selling at a profit.

A new digital currency you bought this week at $1 USD could increase and become the equivalent of $10 USD after a while.

This means that for each $1 USD you spent acquiring that coin, you would have gained $9 USD as an extra on it. The larger the volume you bought, the higher your gain earned.

I will be delivering a webinar sometime in my private Facebook and this will be open only to members.

In conclusion, these 3 Businesses can make you millions in 2018 if you go about it as you should.

There is a proven process, tried and tested to yield results and as promised I will be offering webinars in my private group on these 3 business models for FREE.

What You Need to Know about the Bitcoin

You might have been hearing a lot of buzz about the Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in general. In this article, you will learn some facts you  need to know about the Bitcoin.
The year 2009 marked the beginning of the cryptocurrency revolution as we know it. Takeshi Nakatomo’s Bitcoin was born and the financial world witnessed a wide variety of reactions.
With an initial coin offering of less than 0.5 dollars, many financial experts ridiculed this new digital currency that promised to be the future.
Today, the bitcoin has grown in leaps and bounds in the space of 8 years and is currently at its all time high exchanging at 1 BTC = $11,000.
 
Now imagine you had just 10 Bitcoins from when it was as low as $0.5 for one.
Your guess is as good as mine how much money that will be in this day.
As it stands now, public perception of the Bitcoin has increased leading to a proliferation  of other cryptocurrencies like the Ethereum, Ripple, Altcoins etc.
This increased perception has led to an increased demand for it as more people become more aware of the advantages of cryptocurrencies compared to regular currencies.
Subsequently, an increase in demand has caused a progressive increase in value of the Bitcoin with 2017 being the year recording the most growth.
As at this time last year, the Bitcoin was struggling to maintain the $1000-to-1BTC mark.
Even as at May-June, the exchange rate between these two currencies was still around $1,700 – 1 BTC.

The question that begs an answer is, why this astronomical growth?
 
The answer lies in the advantages the Bitcoin has as a digital currency over traditional currencies.
Its advantages includes the following:
  • it uses a secured network called Blockchain technology that ensures impervious security from hackers, malware or compromise of any sort.
  • it offers peer-to-peer transaction processing without any intrusion from third party transaction processors like banks and other financial institutions
  • there are no spurious and unnecessary charges and fess when transactions are conducted. Transaction fees are extremely low.
  • It offers absence of any central command center as transaction initiation and completion is between two parties – the buyer and the seller. There’s no control in any form from the government or banks.
  • Its Blockchain technology platform offers speedy transaction processing and reconciliation in seconds. Transaction value reflects as soon as they’re carried out using a mobile phone.
  • Offers convenience for users as all transactions can be handled on a mobile phone. There are no brick and mortar offices to visit as everything is online in real time.
  • Bitcoin transactions are immutable and eternal. Cases of a user manipulating a transaction record or receipt is common in normal currency transactions. This isn’t possible when Bitcoin is used for transactions, the Blockchain technology platform maintains all records through a secure encryption process and both parties to a transaction get the same transaction records in real time.
Given these advantages, the Bitcoin has become the benchmark to measure other cryptocurrencies.
Only the Ethereum come close in terms of value and currently goes for $500 for 1 Ethereum coin.
 
Investors who are skeptical about the Bitcoin can go with Ethereum  and others with good potential.
You might want to as how investors or users make their money.
It’s simple.
Bitcoin like any other currency is stored in a secure e-wallet called a Blockchain wallet.
This wallet provides secure encryption for transaction processing and management.
All a user needs to do is to buy the Bitcoin and stock up, then sell when the value appreciates significantly to make your money.
If you had around $30 in a wallet, say since October last year and you left there untouched, the value at this time would be around $450.
That’s an 15 times increment. Now imagine you had 1,000 there.
My forecast however, is that the Bitcoin will continue  to rise in value and will hit as high as $25,000 before mid-2018, if this growth trend is not arrested by any events.
Still thinking of investing in the Bitcoin?
Let’s hear your views about this global digital currency and what it portends for the future in the comments section below.

How You Can Monetize Your Email List

If you are familiar with online business terms, you would have heard the phrase “the money is in the list”. The question however is, what is a list? Once you figure this out, the next thing is to find out how you can monetize your email list.

A list is simply a collection of emails or other contact details of your audience or subscribers.

It is usually targeted.

That is to say, it is usually built from an audience who are interested in your products or services. People whom you send emails and newsletters about what you do are the ones that make up your list.

To manage your email list, you need an email marketing tool like Getresponse, MailChimp or Aweber etc.

Click HERE to read my article on Email marketing platforms you can register on.

Any one of these tools helps you send automated mails to your list as well as manage their contacts effectively in your marketing campaigns.

To monetize your list means to make money from your email list.

You need to sell them your product or service in exchange for monetary payment from time to time if you truly want to monetize your list.

Sounds easy, right?

In a moment

Before you can make money from your list, you must have built a relationship with your list so that they can see you both as an authority in that field and as someone credible.

It’s called building your know, like and trust factor.

To do this, you have to give and add value freely to make them see that you truly care and not just interested in pitching a product idea.

There are certain ways you can give value like the following:

  • You can offer discounts of your product
  • You can offer completely FREE and VALUABLE content in a series of newsletters using your e-mail autoresponder tool like MailChimp or Getresponse
  • You can give away tools and hacks or offer to solve problems faced by your email subscribers via a mail campaign series
  • You can sell advert spaces to your list to promote their products and services
  • You can sell affiliate marketing products to your list if the products relates or caters to what they do

 

Of course, you don’t have to make it seem like your main interest is to sell.

You can only offer a product to them to buy when you have built a relationship with your audience and they have come to see you as a free giver who offers value consistently and selflessly.

This is important.

Warm up your audience first before offering them a product to buy.

The next time you have a paid offer and you push their buttons and market properly

Let’s say you don’t have an e-mail list but you want to build one.

You can get it done by offering a FREE content integrated to a squeeze page whereby your audience has to access the FREE content only if they enter their e-mail contact.

This is the most common way of getting email subscribers to build your list.

The content you are offering has to be VALUABLE to your audience so as to trigger them to enter their e-mail to have access to it.

You can set up your FREE Content or Lead Magnet on your website so that visitors who come across it will opt into your list from there.

Your traffic sources could either be from social media advertising like Facebook or from Search Engines.

As soon as a visitor arrives at your website, their next port of call is your Lead Magnet (FREE and Valuable Gift), they will have to sign in to access it.

Once you have these subscribers, your e-mail marketing tool will come to good use to build a level of trust between you and them when you keep giving them value through quality content.

Content could be in form of newsletters, blog posts and links, free tools, videos etc.

You can pitch a product at them once you first highlight a problem that your offer can solve then pitch your offer to them.

If you have a targeted list of 2,000 subscribers and you pitch your product of say $10 and just 50 people buy this product out of the 2,000.

You would have made $500 in that campaign.

Now imagine the product cost higher than $10 and you have a bigger list plus a more effective sales pitch strategy, you will be making good money on demand.

What do you think?

Does this sound like something you would love to give a shot?

Considering the fact that there are 7 online businesses you can make money from monthly, earning good income online is difficult.

That’s the truth but only if you don’t know what you are doing.

It’s actually very easy to get lost online with the myriad of information floating about.

In this article, I am going to be discussing the 7 online business models that can earn you thousands of dollars in income monthly and consistently.

Some of them can be started without any formal training; you can watch Youtube videos or source for materials on the internet.

Other will require you undergo mentorship or coaching before getting started.

Many Online learning platforms now exist where students can enroll for courses on a wide range of topics.

  • Information Marketing

Information marketing remains an ever viable niche.

People need information to solve different problems.

To make money through information marketing, you have to do just three things.

– find a problem a lot of people have

– create or find a solution to this problem

– offer it to them at a price and earn your money

Now the challenge most people have is finding a problem a number of people have.

This shouldn’t be difficult if you do your research well. It could be weight loss, diabetes, relationship, sex, or even making money.

There are 3 core categories to focus on when you want to create an information product and they are:

Health, Wealth and Heart (relationship)

Under these 3, there are so many different sub-categories where people are hungry to have a solution to.

Do your research, create your information product and sell it to them to make your money.

Of course, it is more detailed than these and in my next post, I will discuss this in greater detail.

 

  • Blogging

Blogging is another evergreen niche to consider if you want to make good money online.

However, the mistake that most people do is to go for a multi-niche blog or a niche with low interest yield.

By low interest yield, I mean the niche doesn’t have a lot of interested people in it.

To make money through blogging, you need to have a good sized audience who will read your content each time you drop a post.

You also need to monetize your blog using affiliate marketing or selling advert spaces to clients.

The more the number of visitors you have on your blog, the more your chances of making money from your blog.

So to make money through your blog, you need the following:

– traffic, lots of targeted traffic.

– products and services to sell on your blog

– advert spaces and banner ads using Company ads, Google adsense, Facebook audience network or affiliate banners

If you have all these in place, the next thing to do is to keep creating quality content to draw your visitors in and engage them accordingly.

You might also need to draw them into your e-mail list by offering giveaways so you can send them posts regularly to increase your traffic.

E-Commerce is another cool way of earning really good income on the internet.

With the advent of Woocommerce and Shopify and others, you can create an online store where you sell good quality products you know your audience will cater to.

You must have a market before you pick a product, this is cardinal rule in marketing.

The kind of product you want to sell will determine the kind of potential customers you will have.

With Shopify and Woocommerce, your online store can be set up and optimized to make sales easily from your website visitors.

Targeting is important when you are doing your marketing too.

Your products can be gotten from giant merchant dealers like Aliexpress, Alibaba and 1688.

These merchants have thousands of products with good quality that you can buy at a give away price and sell for many times the cost price.

Return on investment in E-commerce can be as high as 400-500% or even more.

 

  • Social Media Management

Social media is the new girl in town when it comes to advertising.

What’s more?

It’s cheap when compare to other advertising media but still more effective than them.

Facebook for example, has more than 4 billion users worldwide and this figure isn’t constant.

Companies and brands have realized the fact most of their consumers are on social media and are not putting their faces on social media platforms to increase their reach and engagement.

There is Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as the main three while Snapchat and others are coming quickly behind.

Almost everybody is on social media and it’s influence and reach is unbelievable.

This is where you can come in to make money.

If you can help brands and businesses manage their social media platforms as a social media strategist to increase their reach.

You can offer to engage more potential customers and build more awareness, perception and relationships as the social media advertiser.

Brands are ready to dole out good money for this because it is effective and they know it works.

All you need to do is to present your offer professionally and with good results from a previous performance if you have one.

If you have none, simply enumerate all they stand to gain by going the social media route through you.

From content creation, social media ads, and promotion to building followers and creating a buzz, you are bound to make a killing if they take you on.

You can read more about how you can start a social media agency HERE.

 

A freelancer is one who offers their skills and services in exchange for payment.

Freelancers are not full time employees and usually work on a contract basis.

As a freelancer, you will need to have a specialized skill or service.

It could be web design and development, graphic design, programming, writing, or mobile app development.

As the name implies, you earn income working as an affiliate for a
merchant who pays you commission for each sale you make of his products.

You promote his product and earn commission for each successful sale
completed.

There are so many affiliate firms available and its up to your
discretion in picking one of your choice.

Income is usually in USD which is a plus because the dollar is an international standard currency.

Examples of Affiliate platforms you could look up are JVZoo, Clickbank, Maxbounty etc .Income from this model can be staggering if done well.

2.) Network Marketing

We all know about MLMs aka Multi level marketing. Examples include
Forever Living Products, Helping Hands International and others.

This business relies on the power of your network…it is usually in the form of
a pyramid and each tier feeds the one above it.

It works by referrals and building a chain of interconnected people called your downlines.
Your downlines have their own downlines who have theirs and so it goes.

As long as there are people working below you, you will continues earning income passively.

This is usually after you have built a large network of downlines.

Many of these networking businesses are legitimate and if you are good in convincing people and socializing to build a network, you could try it out as start-up is also minimal.

3.) Information Marketing

I love this one a lot. You provide information on a solution to
people’s problem and you get paid for it.

The information must be valid and effective to start with, if you have a large audience who need this solution, you make a lot of money.

There several problems plaguing man and whoever can provide information that takes care of any of these problems would have made a killing.

Imagine you have a failure-proof solution for getting a scholarship to study in any part of the world and you broadcast this information to the right audience. Will they be ready to pay to have it?

Yes, I know so.

That’s where you make your money.

Capital needed is minimal here too, you only need to have the right tools and do a lot of research on problems you could provide solutions for then find the right audience.

4.) Social Media Marketing

Marketing or advertising done on social media.

Social media has taken over the world of advertising and marketing, in fact, there is no brand that does not have a social media profile now.

It would be a mistake not to have one.

Who isn’t on social media?

Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram receive massive flow of cheap traffic that can be harnessed to positively boost business growth.

With the right knowledge, contacts and exposure, one can can become a
social media marketer for a brand, you will manage their social media
accounts and run promotions and brand awareness is if it were them and you get handsomely paid for it.

Imagine you were the social media marketer for say, Peal Milk…this is just an illustration.

Even if you don’t have the connection for this kind of project, if you project yourself well and learn and master the basics you could sign up on freelancing sites like Fiverr and Upwork to offer services.

Click HERE to get registered on Fiverr and HERE to register on Upwork.

The income is very substantial and start-up capital is also minimal.

Social media marketing provides a huge source of very effective but cheap advertising.

5.) Blogging

When you think blogging, you remember Linda Ikeji.

Blogging pays and it pays very well.

If you have an aptitude for writing well and engagingly, why not substitute your paper with a PC instead and project your thought flow to the world through blogging. Now you are not going to be writing (blogging) on just anything.

You will need to have a focus – also called a niche.

Your blog must be on a particular market…it could be sports,entertainment, gossip, business, weight loss, food or any other niche you can think of.

You will need to be consistent and constantly update your blog as well as provide valuable content for your audience.

Quality and valuable content, good traffic plus engaged audience and money will definitely come.

Paid adverts, Google Adsense and Affiliate marketing banners will monetize your blog.

These businesses work 100% and don’t doubt it.

You only have to follow them right and you will see results. Start-up capital is minimal for each one but the income potential is great.

You will need the right tools – PC, power supply, internet, relevant software, mentoring/training,dedication and a drive to succeed.

Kindly drop a comment if you need more information or have further inquiries, I
will always give you valuable information to help in my own way.

Thank you.

Information Marketing – Learn How You Can Earn Money Selling Information

Information marketing, simply means selling information.

However, this information must be valuable and relevant and must be targeted at those who are hungry for it.

What does this mean? You must market this information to people who have need for it….simple!

Once this is done and your marketing strategy is right…..I see no reason why you won’t make a sale or sales.

It appears quite easy, right?

It actually is though a lot of people make it out to be something complex. The catch here is that whatever information you have decided to market must be something that truly works.

The survival of your information marketing career may depend on your reliability and credibility.

Information marketing is a business model that will remain evergreen forever.

People are in different types and levels of need and pain.

What if you could provide a solution that works to these people that need it. Will they patronize you?

You know the answer to that.

Below are some steps on how you can kick-start your information marketing business.

 

Research, search and research

Yes, research, search and research what is trending currently.

Check social media, join forums and go through the question and answer sections, check online generally on what people are currently interested in.

In my opinion, there are three markets where the hunger for solutions will never end – wealth, health and heart.

I mean ‘make money’, health and fitness, and relationship niches.

These three encompasses the myriad of problems most people are looking for a solution for.

If you can get people in this niche and provide them a solution that really works, you make money.

Valuable information in exchange for cash…..end of discussion.

 

Create a valuable and effective solution

Now you have a target market and you know what they want.

Next is to get a solution you that actually solves this challenge. How do you get a solution?

You research and find it or you buy it then test it out to make sure it really works.

If it’s a product you can’t test for some reason, make sure you check for online reviews from people who have used it before.

The thing is most people are too lazy to search for solutions themselves….

Some of these information can be found online. Google is your friend but procrastination and laziness will not allow a lot of folks help themselves.

Well, it’s to your benefit if you can provide this reliable and effective solution.

Your solution could come in the form of an ebook, video, seminar or any other product.

Market this solution to the right audience

You have a target market who have a challenge, you have a solution for this challenge……now you only have to introduce this solution to your target market and you are good to go.

There are several ways you can do this. You can use the following methods:

  • Post your offer in groups and forums where your target market congregate and hope for the best, this may not be so effective unless you have built some sort of engagement with them previously.
  • Buy a targeted email list and use email marketing to market your offer to them
  • Use targeted FB ad marketing which links to a landing page to gather their emails then presell to them using email marketing before marketing your product.  To make this even more successful, you might add a lure also known as a freebie to attract them to click on your FB Ad and subsequently exchange their email for your free offer.

I personally advocate this last option, you will spend some funds on Facebook Ads but it is bound to pay off more than the other two if done right. You will have their emails and can sell other information materials later on if there is need for it.

 

Basically, this is what information marketing is about and if you follow these steps even as simple as they seem, you would have gotten started.

I hope you find the information I have shared useful, if there are questions or inquiries, don’t fail to reach out to me.

How Social Media Might Determine the Growth of Your Business

Social media has changed the nature of marketing…whether you agree or not.

This is a platform that offers cheap advertising that virally engages prospects in minutes and has a massive reach when compared to traditional advertising methods.

New avenues that didn’t exist previously became available for marketers who have been long suffering the hassle-filled advertising channels in existence.

At the touch of a finger, content can be shared all over the world at the speed of light.

Any business that doesn’t have a social media account is already far behind and likely unaware of all they’re losing.

Almost everybody is on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest etc. Connecting to a lot of people is only a fingertip away and companies who know their onions are already leveraging on this to boost their business in several ways.

There several reasons your business will benefit from social media marketing, check them below:

  • Cheap but effective engagement

For me, this is number one – engagement means being in communication with leads who turn to prospects and finally customers.

When done positively using social media, it leads to improved reputation of your business as it allows the business and is clients to interact freely using social media as a platform.

The social media account becomes a person and represents the business and can respond to enquiries from customers.

For example, if you tweet a complaint or commendation to Peak Milk twitter account, they must respond to your tweet.

This helps in building trust and showing your customers, both potential and existing that your business is in touch with them.

 

  • Traffic

The traffic found on social media is huge resource of potential sales waiting to be converted. Every smart business owner ought to tap into this flow.

It is even better when you have a website where you can drive this traffic to. Your website works hand in hand with your social media accounts.

Your social media creates the awareness and engages them then sends this traffic to your site where your services are checked out.

This is very cheap advertising that is also highly effective; imagine using a tool like a well-targeted Facebook ad campaign to promote your business, the results will be nothing but positive.

 

  • Branding/personality

Social media helps give your business a personality.

I will call this personality your business brand. What comes into people’s minds when they come across your business?

What kind of impression does your business leave on prospects and customers? Friendly, high quality, cheap, exploitative?

Social media can help correct any negative trends or enhance positive trends from engagement with customers.

 

  • Search Engine Optimization

Social media has become more active than ever in promoting SEO for businesses online.

Most of these platforms are being integrated with every coming update of search engines and this makes them work in tandem.

Your site will rank better in SEO if it has social media accounts because this affects the visibility of your business online.

Some of these social media platforms are search engines on their own and can do a significant job of increasing your online presence.

 

  • Coverage/Mobility

A lot of individuals are on mobile devices now, on the go – these people are also on social media.

What is the implication of this?

Your content can reach a large number of people through your social media account 24/7.

Social media gives you the reach, it gives you the coverage, gives you the mobility to engage mobile users who have the most likely chance of coming across your content.

Social media gives your business the necessary awareness.

Most internet activity is done through mobile devices because of the portability and this should be taken into perspective.

 

I hope this information has been useful, kindly leave comments, suggestions or enquiries as the case may be and I will respond to all.

 

 

Why Affiliate Marketing Remains the Easiest Online Business You Can Start

There are a thousand and one online businesses out there but only a handful can be easily set up with little or no prior training.

Affiliate marketing is one of such online businesses that require a small amount of cash investment to start.  It involves promoting a product to a prospective targeted audience and when they make purchase, you earn commissions for each sale completed.

There are several other reasons why you should start affiliate marketing.

Start-up capital is low, you don’t need to create any product, you can do it at your convenience, you can determine how much you are likely to earn by how much effort put in. Now, the next question is how does one get started and what is needed.

Basically, you sign up with an affiliate marketing platform, there are several of them out there like and you can click on anyone of them to get started right away:

Some of them don’t allow registrations from Nigeria like Clickbank while many do. So simply pick one of your choice, register and as an affiliate (a product promoter and seller), you are not creating any product, remember.

Registration is usually free, ensure Nigeria is listed among eligible countries. Use your real details and after signing up go to their payment settings to set up how you will receive your earnings.

You can receive earnings online either through Paypal or a Payoneer card, this is dependent on the affiliate platform chosen.

To get a Paypal account, it has to be registered and verified outside Nigeria because Paypal account registered here have limitations and restrictions.

Click here to open a PayPal account quickly.

You can get someone outside the country to get one registered and verified for you, preferably US or UK.

On the other hand, a Payoneer account and card can be registered and received here in Nigeria.

Click here to open a Payoneer account for receiving payments anywhere in the world.

Simply log on to, www.payoneer.com, register and fill in your details correctly including your home address.

It is advisable to use the closest NIPOST address close to your residence and include your number on this address. When the card gets to NIPOST, they will call you through that number to inform you.

Okay, let’s continue….now, you have registered under an affiliate program of your choice, and probably updated your payment method as well.

Please note that getting your payment method (paypal or payoneer) first before registering is the best way to go about this because after registration you will need to add one to continue.

Now you have an account with an affiliate program and a payment method, next is to pick a niche you will focus on.

A niche is a specific category and in this case, a specific category of products to promote. You could choose money making niche, men’s health niche, weight loss for women niche, sexual health niche, relationship niche.

These niches are evergreen because from now till the end of time, people will always seek for solutions to their problems in this niche. Products here usually sell better than products from other niches.

Pick a niche, check out the available products and pick one or two to promote. You will need the affiliate product link to promote this product by sending them to your targeted audience.

This used to be the way most affiliate marketers promote their affiliate links but it isn’t the most effective.

To get the best out of affiliate marketing, you have to send targeted traffic interested in what you are selling to your affiliate link and hope that they will buy.

But that’s not all, how do you get this targeted traffic.

You need some basic tools like an auto-responder (Getresponse, Aweber) which manages emails and automates the sending process, you will need a landing page builder (for creating landing/optin/squeeze pages for collecting emails e.g Instabuilder, Instapage, Leadpages)

You could get them through joining related groups on Facebook or forums and discussion boards where you can add value through posting useful content and subsequently you can post your squeeze page link to collect emails of those interested in the value you add.

Once you have built a sizable list, you can start employing the power of email marketing by sending them newsletters bearing useful information about a problem your affiliate product can solve.

These mails could bear your affiliate links or you can finally introduce your product in your last mails to them.

This method is the free one but if you are willing to go and grow fast too, you could get a targeted email list and traffic using Solo ads.

Click HERE to register an account on a solo ad network.

Solo ads providers have already grown email lists in your niche and all you need do is contact the seller with your landing page or squeeze page link (a sign up page used for collecting emails) which they will send their traffic to.

Interested persons who sign up on your offer will have their mails received on your auto-responder.

Normally, you are supposed to have messages about this product set up on your auto-responder so that once sign ups come from the solo ads traffic, the auto-responder starts sending scheduled messages to them.

It seems like quite a process but really it isn’t once you understand the system. As long as the solo ads traffic fits your product specification and your email marketing is done right, sales would definitely come….in time.

It’s not really an instant affair but once you master the basics, it will become more of a set up and watch the money come in.

For each sale concluded, you earn a commission and it’s advisable to go for products that pay at least 50% commission and above.

Affiliate marketing done correctly is a sure source of making income without spending much on the project.

You only need the necessary tools and proper guideline to make it work for you.

Quite a number of people have made serious money through affiliate marketing and you can too.

Here’s Why Your Business Will Benefit from Having a Website

The saying ‘the world has become a global village’ is truly cliched now but yet it remains true. With a touch of a button, information can easily be spread to hundreds of thousands of people in a few seconds. The information age is more exciting than ever…what a time to be alive!

Big corporations and businesses have realized the power in leveraging on this information mobility. Traditional marketing methods are being replaced by the advent of social media and content marketing websites – both methods are cheap and even more efficient than traditional marketing methods.

This means that any business that wants exponential growth ought to have a website. Fortunately, getting a website set up for your business doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. All you need to do is to decide on a relevant name for your website (also called a domain name), a hosting account to host the website and a web designer or developer to set up the website.

There are several benefits that comes with having a website for your business, but for the sake of simplicity and brevity, I am going to highlight 5 top reasons why you need to get your business a website.

Below are some reasons why your business needs a website:

 

1.) Brand awareness and exposure

Millions of people are now internet-enabled, thanks to smart phones and
tabs…having a website means you can easily reach across to a percentage
of these people. It gives your business the ability to be accessible from
any part of the world and reduces the limitations of geography and a
physical address. You can get more individuals to get to know your business better this way especially when you employ certain niche targeted techniques. Your business having a website on the internet means you can be contacted from any part of the globe. Your services will be on display right on your site and it does the job of marketing as well. As a matter of fact, a website for a business is like a shop situated on the internet where physical prospects are replaced by online prospects.

2.) Cheap but super-effective advertising

Compared to the cost and efficacy of traditional advertising methods,
owning a website is inexpensive and more effective in advertising. Your
site is permanently on the internet with your goods and services on display in detail for the world to see. There is no need to rely on expensive radio and TV commercials to draw in prospects. Your website can easily leverage on social media and targeted traffic sources which gives your business huge leads with more potentials of conversion. Your prospects can easily contact you at their convenience through your website. All you will need is get a domain name, get web hosting, get targeted traffic sources, display relevant content on the site and drive your traffic through the site and you are good to go.

3.) Saves money, time and always available

Time is money, money is time…I’m sure you have come across that
statement before. Let’s say your business website is up and running, 24/7,
365 days a year…you will not have to waste precious time responding to
queries and phone calls all the time. Why? Because everything they need
know is clearly outlined on your site. You will only have to point them to
check www.blablabla.com for more information and that’s it. Time and effort saved. Remember a website for your business is like an online version of your physical shop or office. The advantage however, is that it is always open and your services can be checked out by prospects at any given time without inconvenience to either party. You save time wasted, you save money on unnecessary adverts. A win -win.

4.) Builds customer loyalty and offers convenience

When your business as a website on the internet, it is like saying, ‘we
are good and very confident in what we do, so here we are showing it to the whole world’. It makes your business have more credibility, this makes potential clients able to trust you more because of the exposure you have given your business. Surely, you won’t be up to something funny and expose your business that way. It gives a personal feel to your business.

It also offers them convenience to be able to access your services at
any given time. Say, during weekends, they won’t have to wait till Monday
morning to visit your office or call your office line. This convenience of
access is really an advantage most businesses fail to realize.

5.) Establishes you as an authority in that field

When your business has a website, it establishes you as authority in
that niche. You are an expert in providing solutions and services to people
who need them. They are more likely to believe you and patronize you when they perceive you to be a professional in that niche. Your website will usually have a lot of detailed information on what it is you do and this
gives you an edge over your competitors who do not have a website.

There are several other reasons your business needs a website to grow
further, however, I believe this 5 are top reasons you should go
for a website.

You will need a web-hosting and a domain name and of course, get a web
designer to make it come alive. There are also several tips you might need
to get it really optimized.

In my next write-ups, I will be discussing how you can get the best website set up for you and how to get online visibility after that.
