From the beginning…

Well, I should probably start off by being honest.  I am not starting at the beginning…

I have been looking at Internet Marketing for years now and have just decided to get serious and put an end to all the nonsense. To actually build something from the ground up without taking any shortcuts or counting on any “Magic Bullets” (which by the way, don’t exist). Continue reading

Trust Yourself! Be The BOSS!

Trust Yourself Be A BossYay! I’m the BOSS!!!

Want to know what one of the difficult things of being the boss is…

You can’t go ask your boss what to do when you get stuck on something 🙁

Recently, I have bought software to create websites, find free/attribution-free photos for for my blog and lastly, keyword software to find the low cost words to bid on for cheap clicks to my site and offers.

I still have not been able to rig up an authority blog with the theme software I bought – even after watching videos on how to do it for hours-on-end.  Talk about frustrating.  The guy on the video just clicks a few buttons and Whamo!  He gets what he needs.  I click the same buttons, and I get, “This just doesn’t look right”.

And, I’m really good at figuring stuff out, too… Continue reading

Creating Your Own Info Products – The Way To Go

Creating Your Own Info Products – The Way To Go

Your own information products offer you far more than just your own unique streams of income. They bring with them a certain element of prestige. Not to mention long term branding benefits.

If you’re reading this as “just another affiliate marketer” then take note, because there’s no reason why you can’t join the elite group of info product owners who are building their business brand and pocketing a nice wad of cash while they are at it. All with their own unique information product.

You can arguably, create a good income as an affiliate. With a basic blog that pitches other people’s products continually. Thing is, you’re then quickly branded by the very people you’re trying to sell to as a bit of a joke. A part timer. As someone who is nothing but a bit of a salesman. Who hasn’t really got anything new to say – or worthwhile to offer. Continue reading

Building an Email List From Scratch

Building an Email List From Scratch

Whenever a newbie hears someone say, “The money’s in the list,” it feels intimidating and exhilarating all at once. They want so badly to experience the joy of sending out a single email and seeing sales pour in, but they don’t know how to start their list building endeavors.

For most marketers, time slips away and because they kept saying, “Someday I’ll build a list,” someday never comes. That results in a struggle each time they have something to promote or release because they have to find buyers.

When you have an email subscriber list, you have a built in stable of interested customers and prospects – and they can convert for you, promote for you, and give you tips on what needs to be improved. Continue reading

Write Attention-Grabbing Titles

Write Attention-Grabbing Titles

A great email title should jump off the page, grab a hold of your reader’s attention and almost force them into opening the email. A poor title on the other hand will easily be skimmed over and lost.

How do you write a title that grabs attention? Here are a few tips.

Use Action and Power Words

The more vibrant and energized your words, the more people are going to be drawn to them. Continue reading

Ways to Make Money with Affiliate Marketing

Ways to Make Money with Affiliate Marketing

When you first get into affiliate marketing, you’ll encounter a strange kind of alphabet soup with lots of P’s and C’s. These are different methods for making money with affiliate marketing. There are lots of pay structures, but first let’s consider the most basic and most popular.

The basic model of all affiliate marketing is called Cost per Action (CPA). This means that you get paid whenever the site visitor performs a certain action. You could get paid per sale, lead, click, sign-up, download or anything else that they do. The visitor does it, and you get paid. Continue reading

Welcome To The Simple Home Biz!

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Christopher K and I am starting this blog from scratch!  I have found found a very simple to use theme called “skeleton” and it was just what I was looking for: Simple and Clean.  No fuss and easy to set up.  Took about 20 minutes to change a few settings –  and we’re off!!!

My goal here is to log the my adventures (and progress) into Internet Marketing.

I have been looking at marketing for years. And, what I mean by looking at it it, I mean reading eBook after eBook about how to do just about everything under the sun in regard to marketing on the Internet.

Definitely a serious case of Shiny Object Syndrome – just had to have everything that I thought would make money.  Tip after tip, secret after secret, hack after hack.  Looking for whatever would bring push-button riches.  Nothing worked…  At least, not for me.

Seems to me, there are NO shortcuts.  It’s going to take List Building, Product Creation, Email Marketing and Brand Building to get to the level of success I’m looking for.

It all starts at the beginning – this is it!

I’m currently working on putting together my first eBook about starting to build an email list and following up with affiliate marketing offers.  I’m excited about it. I have so many ideas for it, but thanks to the IM Rebels and their Breakthrough Rebel Profits site, I have the focus and the plan to make it all the way through to the end of the project.

I’d like to give the IM Rebels a bit of praise.  By following their guide and doing some honest research, I found that the idea I had stuck in my head for the longest time – my big get-rich-quick idea, just plain would not work.  Bummer… But, at the same time Thank You Very Much for saving me the time, money and heartache!!!

In regard to the current project, there’s a lot of work to be done between now and Launch Day – setting up squeeze pages, autoresponder follow-up messages, researching the info, compiling the book, writing the sales page.

Now, add into the mix – fill in this blog…  Things should get interesting.

OK… Enough for now.  I need to go fill in a bit in each of the other Categories – Thank God for PLR!!!
