Work at home on
the Internet: internet marketing and affiliate program help.
| Nov 10th 2003
before I say anything else, I want to let you
know that I'm making a few changes around here.
There's going to be less product talk and more
help and advice.
As you know, I haven't sent out an ezine for
a while (explanation below), and I did quite a bit
of thinking during my enforced layoff.
I figured that since I make so much from my mini
sites I don't really need the affiliate commissions
I make from "recommending" products to you, so I'm
going to cut down on the number I tell you about.
There'll still be some of course, and there are
a couple below :)
But from the next letter there's going to be
more tips and solid stuff-you-can-use advice.
Having said that, here's an afterthought:
I only ever let you know about software, sites,
and ebooks that I really think will benefit you.
And I know you like to hear my thoughts about them.
So what I might do is just put short reviews
up on a web site and point you towards them.
"I've looked at some new software
Take a look here to read what my feelings on it"
That kind of thing. Sound ok?
Actually most of my income comes from sites that
have nothing at all to do with this tiny internet
marketing/business/affiliate program niche.
So unlike most marketers I don't need to try
and sell you something.
I've got sites covering a squillian niches. If
you're looking for ideas of areas to venture into Michael
Holland's Strike it Niche is a good place to begin.
He's done a great research job, and reading this
ebook should leave you dancing with enthusiasm.
Well it's over 3 weeks since I last wrote this "ezine"
... if that's what you want to call it. These days I
just think of it as a letter from me to you.
Well it's too long to explain here, so I've stuck
it up on another page here (will open in new window)
but if you want to skip it, here's the short version.
My satellite connection failed and left me internetless.
You might think that's a good time for writing,
or catching up on other work. But I found it doesn't
quite work out that way.
When you're running a web business it's very
hard to do ANYTHING without being online. And anyway,
I spent most of my time trying to get things fixed,
reinstalling Windows and other software more times
than I care to remember.
Well, now I'm back online (fingers crossed) however
I'm not expecting full stability until Tuesday when
my satellite disappears for ever and I get Wireless
Anyhow, since I got back on yesterday I've been
busy collecting my thousands of emails and sorting
spam from the good stuff, plus finishing off the
report about Traffic Equalizer I was working on
when my connection went down.
If you're waiting for it, I'll send you the link tomorrow.
And if you sent me an urgent email please resend.
I've lost a lot of mail over the past few weeks.
Here's something I've got to tell you about quick
Marlon Sanders launched an excellent new product
a few days ago. At least I think it was only a few
days ago, and when I checked my mail a few minutes
ago I saw that he's putting the price up by $10 TODAY.
How do I know it's an excellent product. Because
as soon as I saw he'd brought something new out
I jumped straight in and bought it.
It's low cost and useful, and it's not an ebook
or a program - it's a "Marketing Dashboard". The concept
is you point, click and follow the steps. So it's literally"point and click marketing".
It's very simple to use. It's divided into 6
steps, with 6 steps each, which makes it a 6 week program with
actions you take - 6 days per week. The best thing
to do is go and take a look at a screen capture of
it, so that you can instantly understand how it will

Update on my recent contest winner Isobel Philllips.
(Note: I've removed the site name and keywords
from Isobel's letter to keep her site secret to stop it being
"And now... an update on the mini
site you built me.
Well, put " - - " (no quotes) into Google and take a
I made no changes to the site at all. I linked
to it from a page with a PR of 4 last week ... and in 4 days we've
made 5 sales from 152 unique clicks to "- - - - s" and
earned $42! I'm delighted - thank you so much! Feel
free to quote those figures in your newsletter if you'd
Just goes to show that mini sites work, doesn't
it. Back in March, in issue 270, I wrote about how if you
put in a lot of hard work and build 2 new mini sites a
week you can end up with an income of 5000 a week.
I'm on track. Are you?
My main marketing site at ozemedia.com is about
2,200th most popular site on the net (out of millions).
And it's been that way quite a while.
How do I know this?
I use the Alexa Toolbar which you can download
for free. Alexa is an Amazon company.
This toolbar is a VERY useful tool for we internet
marketers because it's loaded with useful info about
every site you visit - things like where it ranks,
customer reviews, contact info, and it even shows
how many links the site has.
This is extremely handy if you're looking for
sites to exchange links with, which is necessary for ranking
well in Google.
But one more thing. You can GIVE it away to your
web site visitors and make money from it because
when people download it via your link YOUR Amazon
affiliate ID is embedded into the toolbar.

Because of my problems here's a re-run of the
EQ offer from my last letter. I'm not going to promote
this program too heavily because it works too well
and I don't want the competition.
If you decide to get involved with this, send
me your clickbank receipt for the bonuses. If I've
already emailed you about this offer (weeks ago now)
please don't resend - you're in my database, and I'm
clogged up with email.
Right, that's enough for today.
Look out for the next rip-roaring letter coming
to your mail box real soon.
