Today’s Affiliate Silver Bullet launch sets a new benchmark for affiliate marketing resource sites – that is, sites that provide ongoing services to affiliate marketers for a monthly fee.

Until today, the best was ClickBank Pirate – they provide you with a new video squeeze page to promote each month, supply the free report your prospect downloads and deliver the autoresponder series to sell the prospect into the affiliate product you’re promoting. Everything is done for you – all you do is send traffic.

So it’s no wonder that the new benchmark is being established by Cindy & Soren, owners of CB Pirate – they’re the same service providers behind Affiliate Silver Bullet. At first blush, ASB seems to be the same, and in fact DOES provide everything that CB Pirate does. But there is ONE major difference that experienced affiliate marketing pros will notice right off…

With your Affiliate Silver Bullet membership, you can choose each month whether to let them host it for you and run the e-mail series or to download it all and put it online on your own site. This is a huge improvement, as running it on your own site means YOU own the list it generates, people are opting into YOUR autoresponders, and as a result you can follow up with them about other related products down the road.

And THAT, my friend, makes all the difference in the world to anyone trying to establish or grow their own work-at-home affiliate marketing business online – now you’re able to build opt-in lists while building your commissions, giving you potential earnings immediately and much great potential earnings as each month passes…

Get hooked up with Affiliate Silver Bullet today at http://www.affiliate-silver-bullets.com – head over there now and take a look at everything included in your new affiliate marketing package!

And if you’re not already an expert in affiliate marketing making 4-5 figures a month from it, be sure to sign up for our next round of Affiliate Marketing PowerStart coaching classes – enroll now to start the 8-week program on June 3rd!

Starting An Affiliate Marketing Business From Home

©2009 Doug Champigny, Captain-Affiliate.com. All Rights Reserved.

Affiliate marketing is the easiest and fastest way for most people to start making money online. And as more and more people wake up to the new economic reality, a work-at-home (WAH) business is very attractive to supplement their full-time income and build eventually into a true full-time work-from-home business of their own!

No one disputes the benefits of working from home, or that an online business is probably the best choice for most WAH startups – and affiliate marketing is the easiest quickest and often least expensive way to start. But just how do you go about starting an affiliate marketing business from home?

The first step is to be brutally honest with yourself – after all, not everyone is cut out to be self-employed, not matter what type of business startup is involved. Are you always ready to learn? Do you have the discipline to set aside time for your business on a regular schedule and not deviate from it? Can you persevere through the tough times when sales and profits are low or non-existent but you still need to invest more time and money? Can you resist pressure & interruptions from our family & loved ones to stay on track during your online time? Are you the type to focus on your own business while online, not getting sidetracked watching videos or playing online games?

If not, you’re wasting your time reading this or any affiliate marketing, Internet marketing or work-at-home blogs – without the discipline, focus and perseverance your attempts will amount to a very expensive and probably not profitable hobby. Sorry, but I’ve seen it time and time again – new affiliates who don’t take direction, don’t put in the effort then wonder why they’ve never made money online – and I DON’T want YOU to be one of them!

Since you’re still reading, I assume you’ve thought it over and decided to put in the effort and time it takes to succeed with your own work-at-home business, right? Then you’re next decision is whether affiliate marketing is the right choice for you…

If your CV, education and/or interests lean toward a career in writing, you may want to start into niche marketing instead – creating our own e-books on various niche topics and marketing those directly. Similarly, if your full-time job is in computer programming, it may be more logical for you to create and market your own line of software instead. While in either case you’ll probably use affiliate marketing as part of your ongoing income strategies, it wouldn’t be the focus of your new work-at-home business.

But if you’re background is in marketing, or you’re just not that familiar with any of this, then you’re probably best off starting with affiliate marketing to get your online business up and rolling… Product creation, salespage creative and design, payment processor, download delivery – all of the technical process is already in place on the merchants site, leaving the affiliate free to focus strictly on the marketing of the product – the fun side of the biz!

Think about it for a minute – every aspect of earning money online, be it Internet marketing, niche marketing, affiliate marketing, blogging, building AdSense sites, offering services, running membership sites or anything else, requires targeted prospects to succeed. So you can think of affiliate marketing as the training ground for success in any online endeavor you eventually want to focus on in your new work-at-home business.

That’s what makes this your best starting point – the greatly reduced technical knowledge required and the superb training it provides for your future evolution online. If you’re looking to start an online work-at-home business, seriously consider starting with affiliate marketing – and then give it your best shot!

There are a number of ways to make money with affiliate marketing. Some use articles, some do videos or podcasts, blogs are always a great idea, and your opt-in mailing list should always be your biggest source of affiliate marketing commissions.

But just WHAT you’re promoting makes a big difference too – for example, a one-off sale is usually much easier to make than selling someone into a membership, while a membership sale can mean good repeat (residual) commissions. In most cases the higher the price tag the higher the commission payable, but most affiliates find the difficulty goes up in proportion to the item’s price.

Once in a long while though, a different type of affiliate offer surfaces, as evidenced by Russell Brunson’s 12 Month Internet Millionaire 2.0 This is one you want to jump on right now, because the opportunity only lasts ONE WEEK.

From now until November 11, 2009, Russell is sharing his seminar from StomperNet that details how he went from 6-figures a year to 8 figures a year – heady stuff, and definitely a great watch for every Internet and affiliate marketer! And he’s letting you watch the video for free!

More importantly to affiliates, though, is the affiliate offer that goes with it. As soon as you sign up to watch the video you’ll be given an affiliate link of your own, and Russell is paying out $1.00 for each person you refer that watches the free video.

Did you catch that?

The $1 per person is paid to you for those you refer to the free video – not for anyone buying anything! So you’re making money without any sales taking place! Why would he do something like this – pay YOU for sending viewers who may not buy anything?

Next Wednesday, Nov 11th, Russell is launching version 2.0 of Russell Brunson’s 12 Month Internet Millionaire, and he’s counting on converting enough of the free leads to make back his money – and pay our commissions on those sales as well!

So not only do you make money if they eventually buy, but you’re ALSO making money online just by sending people to that free video – a free video that will teach viewers a LOT about how to structure their business to make a lot more money over the next year or two.

And that, fellow affiliates, is the easiest way to make money as an affiliate – by sending people to a free resource that will truly help them. And in this case it’s even easier, since you’re making money just for them watching the video – whether they buy later or not!

But again, this whole Pre-Launch only lasts 7 days, so get your affiliate link NOW and get it out there today! No matter how easy a promotion might be, you’ll never make any money online if you don’t take action! After all, my affiliate link to this promo is throughout this blog post, so I’m just suggesting you do as I do if you want to make more as an affiliate marketer!

Affiliate marketing is the easiest form of online marketing to get started with, has the lowest investment required, and can be applied to almost any niche instantly. Affiliate marketing is also one of the most lucrative ways to make money online – once you know how. And this new set of 12 Affiliate Marketing how-to videos provide a step-by-step tutorial that can get you up to speed fast!

Affiliate Marketing How-To Videos Tutorial

It’s been shown time and again that the fastest way to learn something is by watching how-to videos – and the same goes for affiliate marketing. Why stumble around trying to figure it out when people are already making money with affiliate marketing all over the world?

Far wiser to simply watch these affiliate marketing tutorials and skip the first major chunk of the learning curve! After all, most people could use more money now, right?

It can still take time to get up to speed and start making money online with affiliate marketing, to be sure – but why push that income horizon any further away than it needs to be?

Included with the videos and written transcript, two more affiliate marketing resources are included – Real World Affiliate Profits and Affiliate Compass – Finding Your Way To Online Success. Both of these e-books are designed to help you even more in your affiliate marketing efforts, so in total this package includes the 12 Affiliate Marketing How-To Videos, the Affiliate Profits Blueprint transcript and the two e-books, yet the whole bundle is priced the same as most e-books go for on their own…

Special Time-Limited Bonus – Master Resell Rights!

Best of all, during this initial launch you’ll also receive the Master Resell Rights to the bundle, meaning you can sell this package from your own site and keep 100% of the profits yourself! After the first few weeks this bonus will be removed and become a $20 upsell, so be sure to see if the rights are still listed as a bonus and download your copy before the price increases!

But really, when it comes down to it, it’s the affiliate marketing training that’s the real value here… Think of how much you can learn from 12 videos and 2 e-books – and how much you might be able to make with your own online business once you apply what you learn!

The Captain makes thousands EVERY MONTH with affiliate marketing – shouldn’t YOU be pulling in big affiliate commissions every month too? Get started down that road today – download your video training bundle now!

For people who know that they want their own online business, and a full time career working from the comfort of their own homes, affiliate marketing offers a wonderful solution. Often, people know that they want to be in business for themselves, but they don’t have any ideas for a product or service to offer, and even if they do have an idea, they don’t have the funds or the ability to create the product or service.

To listen to an Audio Version of this affiliate marketing article, click this arrow:

With affiliate marketing, the greatest advantage is that you don’t need your own product or service. You simply promote someone else’s products or services for a commission of the sales. There are generally no start up costs, and no overhead, other than the need for a computer with an Internet connection.

Other costs are minimal, at best, and include the cost of an autoresponder, a domain name, and a website. An affiliate marketing business can literally be started for under $100, if you already have a computer. Starting a full blown internet business, on the other hand, where a product or service must be created, can cost thousands of dollars.

Even after a business is started, the cost of maintaining the business and serving customers can become astronomical! The headaches of running such a business become intense as well.

With affiliate marketing, you can avoid all of that. Delivery of the product or service is someone else’s responsibility. Running the business is someone else’s problem. All of that overhead is someone else’s concern. All you have to do is market the product or service.

You will of course need to keep your own records regarding your income and expenses, but when it’s all said and done, your job is simply to market the product or service, and to let the company handle the rest of the work. You also won’t have to deal with refunds, even though such refunds will affect your affiliate commission.

Another advantage of affiliate marketing is that while it is desirable to have your own domain name and website, it isn’t required. You can market affiliate programs without a website at all, using free blogs, writing articles, publishing your own newsletter, and purchasing ezine ads – all of which will direct potential customers to the affiliate sales page, through your affiliate link.

Why I Love Affiliate Marketing – Part 4
By Jimmy D. Brown of “Affiliatenaire

I’m sure by now you are well aware that there are those who
have reported HUGE amounts of money being made with their
online businesses. What you may not be aware of is the
amount of work involved in generating those “sales” (not
always net profit, mind you … this isn’t “spendable”
income in a lot of cases.)

That brings me to the fourth reason why I love affiliate
marketing…

** You don’t need to manage an entire business **

While it can be quite lucrative, running an entire business
with employees, inventory, partners, vendors, and other
associates can be a time-sucking, frustrating ordeal.

Imagine…

* Processing refunds
* Putting out fires when partners SPAM
* Managing day-to-day operations
* Overseeing projects you’ve outsourced
* Recruting new affiliates
* Training everyone to help you
* Paying taxes
* Taking care of the paper trail
* Doing all of the “stuff” that business owners do.

Didn’t you want to start an internet business to make
more time for important things in life?

Why not make a lot of money WITHOUT making a lot of extra
work for yourself?!

It can be a lot of extra work and stress. BUT, with
affiliate marketing, you don’t need to manage an entire
business! You are simply responsible for promoting your
affiliate link… someone else handles all the rest.

That’s why I love affiliate marketing.

You don’t need to manage an entire business.

…………………….

Jimmy D. Brown is the author of Affiliatenaire, teaching
you how to create big-time affiliate commission checks in
only 1-3 hours each week. Discover how you can get cash in
the bank without a website, experience or even an idea!
