Every day people look at the tremendous growth of the internet and wonder how they can get involved. With over 1.7 billion people worldwide now online, internet marketing is only getting bigger and bigger. If you want to learn how to generate income online with no product, no experience and no investment, you need to take a look at affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing – the marketing of other people’s products online – offers so many advantages.

1. Get into business yourself: There are lots of ways to get into business. But few, if any, offer the chance to do so from the comfort of your own home, on a schedule of your choice, without the need to commute or punch in on a time clock. You can be your own boss and run the show the way you choose.

2. No cost startup: Franchises are expensive to begin. Starting a brick and mortar business, like a gas station or a dry cleaner, requires a significant capital investment. Multi level marketing is inexpensive to get into, but may be uncomfortable for many since it requires selling to family and friends. Beginning a full time online retail or services business has significant up front development costs. Affiliate marketing, however, can be started up with no cost; all you need is an internet connection to get started.

3. Well known companies and brand names: As an affiliate marketer, you do not have to spend time promoting products or services which are not well known. In affiliate marketing it is possible to choose among some of the most successful big name companies and some of the hottest brand names. There’s no need for you to sell an off-brand cosmetics line. Instead you can market what most shoppers are buying.

4. Freedom of choice: Affiliate marketing allows you to choose the products and services you promote, the seasons in which to promote them and the audience you want to reach. You can take advantage of buying trends and shopping seasons, by rolling out special campaigns. There are no limits in affiliate marketing, other than the amount of effort and creativity you want to dedicate to developing your business.

5. Additional stream of income: If you’ve got a job, you can easily use affiliate marketing to generate more income. This is also a perfect opportunity for a stay-at-home parent, especially when you have a working spouse. Or if you are a student, you can be an affiliate marketer and generate funds for tuition when you are not in class. After all, few students these days are without a computer — which is all that is required to own and run an affiliate marketing business. If you are retired, then…what else have you got to do? Why not be a marketing expert working in association with some of the most prominent companies in the world? And if you are unemployed, affiliate marketing can earn you income while you are searching for your next opportunity.

Other perfect candidates for affiliate marketing include people who are injured and can’t perform their regular job; pregnant moms who want to stay home during and after their pregnancies; workers sick of the nine-to-five; and dads who decide they want to be stay at home dads and create wealth from home.

6. Learn to earn: This is not complicated work. Besides, there are many online resources that will take you by the hand and lead you step by step on your journey to becoming a wealthy affiliate marketer. With so much training available, the question is not whether you can learn or apply this information. Rather, the question, “Do you have the work ethic to get the job done?” Think about it: are you willing to use your imagination to create and grow an online affiliate marketing business?

7. The future of advertising: Perhaps the most compelling reason to be an affiliate marketer is the fact that online marketing is the new direction of choice by most businesses. As print media slowly dies and the electronic media becomes even more expensive, advertising on the web increases in viability. Utilizing affiliate marketers on a commission basis eliminates a whole range of salary and benefit expenses for companies. It just makes good business sense. You can be the marketer who brings the buyers to the seller. It is a process that is less costly to the seller and more convenient to the buyer. As the marketer, you provide the service and collect the commission. This the future of marketing, so take a look at this exciting business today!

In times when people are a little worried because of the inundation of CNN (constant negative news) everywhere I thought I would identify a few reasons why being nice can, one person at a time, make the world and economy a better place.

1. You will brighten others day

2. Feel better about yourself

3. Make others feel important

4. Help someone in need

5. You are more likeable

6. Make more friends

7. Become a center of influence

8. You become a more attractive person

9. Attract nicer people

10. Gain respect

11. Become more interestING be being interestED

12. People are nicer to you

13. Others look to help you

14. Get more Business


By taking the initiative to go out of your way to be nice and help others together we will, one person at a time, make the world a much nicer place to live. Just think of the last time someone went out of their way to help you and how it made you feel.

Tomorrow, try and keep your eyes and ears open for someone who you can make a positive impact on their life that you normally wouldn’t think of, even if it is just a compliment.

You look very nice today! You are great at that, can you teach me? I like your shoes!

Whatever you do don’t forget a smile!

Are you willing to changes your actions to get all that you desire?

Obviously if you do what you have always done you will get what you have always gotten so without change you will accomplish no more than you did before.

Anthony Robins has a great method for solving problems, but it is also useful in evaluating the changes you are willing to make in order to get what you want.

1) What is not perfect yet?

2) What could be perfect?

3) What am I willing to do to make things the way I want them?

4) What am I willing to no longer do to make things the way I want them?

5) What can I do to accomplish this and enjoy the process?

These are fantastic questions because if you didn’t notice they are all presupposing perfection, you are anticipating success instead of worrying about failure. I use these questions in pretty much all areas of my life when I have anything that is troubling me. The most difficult part is allowing yourself the time to ask the questions.

Presently I am restarting the process of getting into the best shape physically and mentally I have ever been in. When I made this decision I was truly just sick and tired of being sick and tired! But here is what is different about the idea I had and the idea many people have. I sat down answered these questions, put the schedule down in my calendar for the week, and got to work immediately. When you have an idea or desire do all that you can as soon as you can to begin the creation of that habit. Since it takes 21 days to form the habit why not get started ASAP?

Find others who desire what you desire and team up. I am extremely fortunate to have a motivated workout partner for both business and physical fitness. We set up goals and a plan, and now we have the ability to keep each other accountable.

We all have a vision or passionate desire from time to time that motivates us, but it is like Jim Rohn has stated “The key is doing what needs to be done, after the excited feeling you had when you decided to do it has left you.” Having a burning desire or laser focus is a necessity when it comes to accomplishing something you never have before. Your workout partner, who should be someone will keep you accountable and not accept excuses, is like a back up motivator and can be invaluable to your success.

To Do’s: Determine what you love and must do to accomplish what you desire, get to work, and search for a workout partner along the way. Good Luck and don’t miss part 4 the conclusion!
