You Can Make Money Online Without Really Having Your Own Website

You don't really need to run a website to make money on the Internet. Read below for a proven strategy that allows you to make money online without the need to manage a website:


First:
Find An Appropriate Affiliate Product To Promte

Products to promote that make you a decent commission per sale are better. You will probably get the largest commissions on digital products. Digital products are popular as the customer can instantly download their purchase after payment is made, Things like e- books and software etc. are examples of digital products.



As there is no extra expense per unit, shipping and inventory costs for example, the commissions are much higher than that of regular "physical" goods. A common commission level on digital products is around 50%. The ideal place to find these type of products is Clickbank.com


Join Clickbank.com as a reseller (also called an affiliate) search the many products available and select what you find the most appealing. Upon sign up, you will receive a unique affiliate link, this is where you will send potential customers to purchase the product.


Your affiliate link will have a unique code that tells the product owner that it was you who referred the customer. This unique affiliate link code allows your commission payments to be tracked and assigned to you accordingly.



Second:
Create A Domain


Get a domain name (.COM) to redirect to your affiliate link. GoDaddy.com have domain names for less than $10 and they allow you to redirect your domain name to your affiliate link at no extra cost.


When someone types in your domain name in their browser, it will go to your affiliate link. They will see the website with the product you promote, and the commissions will be tracked to you.


The reason you need a domain name is that affiliate links tend to be too long and can also arouse suspicion. For example, most people would be more likely to click on the link greatproduct.com as opposed to greatproduct.com?/reseller=joecitizen


Having a domain name makes your affiliate link look like it's your website. Basically, you will have a product to promote and earn commissions from and a website to send people to - without really having your own website.


Lastly:
Drive Traffic To Your Domain


Obviously, to make sales, you will need to get visitors to your domain name (which redirects them to the website of the product that you resell). You can pay for advertising but it's best to use free methods to generate traffic. Later, you can use a portion of your profits to purchase advertising.


An effective way of getting free targeted visitors to your website is to write and submit articles. Write short articles relating to the product that you promote. At the end of each article, include your domain name link within your author bio.


Submit your articles to appropriate websites and allow them to publish your articles as long as your domain name link remains. Your articles will get published across the Internet, and will be continually advertising your link at zero cost. When people read your articles and like what you have to say, they are being "pre sold" and are ready to click on your domain name link and purchase your product.


As you start getting steady sales from your articles, you then go back to the first step, finding another suitable product to promote using the same strategy. Eventually, you will build up a regular source of online income - all without really having your own website.

DesktopLightning - It's Strengths and Weaknesses

If you've been following what's been going on in the Internet
Marketing scene then I'm sure you've heard about
DesktopLightning by now.

Lots of people are saying really good things about the site,
but are they to be believed?

I decided to write an honest review of this site, covering
what I believe to be its strengths and also its weaknesses, just
to try and clear it up once and for all...

================================================================
DesktopLightning - It's Strengths and Weaknesses
================================================================

Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars (* * * * 1/2)

To Put It In A Nutshell
-----------------------

This catchy new viral marketing tool, capable of broadcasting
messages directly to people's desktops, is easy to use and
caters primarily to people who have something they want to
promote and are looking for a better way to do that.

(Read on for why I can't give it 5 stars)

1. My Initial Impressions
--------------------------

When I was first introduced to DesktopLightning, I wasn't
quite sure exactly what to think about it. Everyone was saying it was
going to be even more powerful than e-mail marketing, this
seemed like too bold of a claim.

I signed up, since I usually give things a chance --
that's how I have found several sites that I do really trust
and rely on.

The signup process took about 60 seconds, as advertised,
their software program downloaded and installed in about
30 seconds. Not a long, tedious install processes here. If you
happen to own downloadable software, take a look at
how quick their install process is.

After installing the software, it ran immediately, and
I was quickly presented with a tool to invite my friends.

Within one-click's access was my Inbox, the tool to send
broadcasts, a statistics page, and my favorite feature, the "Build
Your Network" page.

I'll talk more about why that's my favorite page later.

2. Viral Growth
---------------

This is where the site really shines. The
purpose of a viral marketing site is that you should be able
to invite just a few people, and then watch it start growing further
on its own.

Of course many sites claim to work like this, but few actually do work as
advertised.

I'm not sure if it's because of their unique concept or the
slick implementation, but this site REALLY is viral. Here's
a few of the testimonials they got, I think they sum it up
very well:

"I haven't ever seen a system build a downline so
fast. I joined your program just to try something
new. Four days later I had a downline of 43 people.
This is unbelievable."

~ Harry Joseph

"I invited just a handful of people only a few days
ago and I already have 48 members on 5 levels below
me. I am going to keep promoting this, but I see it
has a life of it's own now. I couldn't stop my
network from expanding if I wanted to!"

~ David Parton

"This website is so viral - I received over 100
sign-ups and my network is already 5 levels deep in
less than 48 hours."

~ Rene Keiser

Although they obviously can't guarantee results for anyone,
the general consesus is that most people who do get those
initial few people in are experiencing results similar to
these.

I give DesktopLightning.com an A+ for spreading like wildfire.

3. Direct-To-Desktop Broadcasts
-------------------------------

So, once you have the people in your network from the direct
invitations and viral growth, it really gets cool.
Now is when you get to broadcast whatever message you like
directly to their desktops.

The days of sending out emails and wondering if
they were received due to spam filters and crowded inboxes are gone.

If you decide to upgrade to their Platinum membership, you can even
get exact statistics on the percentage of your broadcasts that
were opened, but the Platinum membership is not the subject
of this particular review.

Ok, here's how it works -- the DesktopLightning software is
what allows the direct-to-desktop communication to be
received. Everyone in your network will have the
DesktopLightning application installed, just as you do,
this is what allows such smooth and instant communication
to occur.

Within one hour of you sending the message, everyone in your
network who is online will receive notification on their
desktop that they can click to read your message.

Anyone who is not online at the time will receive it when they
next log on.

I'm sure you can see why this type of communication has been
more successful than email, so I won't get into
that too much here. The basic point to realise though is that there's no
way your message can be lost, overlooked, or blocked by any
filters.

If you upgrade to their Platinum service you can do extra things
like embed video and sound right into the broadcast, but
again, I'll save the Platinum service for another review.

4. Building Your Network
-------------------------

Most sites out there nowadays don't really help you build a
network of people below you. They just throw you a URL and
expect you to run with it.

This works for most advanced people, but it's not something
that's very easy for people who are just starting out.

DesktopLightning went really far this time to make sure
that everyone has a way of bringing people into their network,
regardless of skill level.

When you click on "Build Your Network" from within
their application, you'll be presented with a surprising
number of tools to help build your downline.

Everything from banners, to popups, text ads, invitation
tools, to emails to send out, etc.

Then, they continue to offer something which I haven't seen on
any Internet Marketing site yet -- they have a "Starting From
Scratch" section, designed specifically for those people who have
no list and no website with traffic.

If you're in that position, then you'll love this section
since they detail specific strategies you can use to promote
DesktopLightning (or anything else for that matter), even if
you don't have anything to start with.

A very valuable resource.

5. It's Not For Everyone
------------------------

With all that's been said, the only downside to DesktopLightning
is that it's not quite for everyone.

Of course, some might see that as an upside, since it's a more
of a targeted opportunity.

Basically, the bottom line is that DesktopLightning is a
promotional tool. You need to have something you want to
promote or advertise before you can really make use of this
site.

It's all due to the fact that the basic concept is that
you build a viral network of people, and then broadcast
something to it.

But, this "something" can be whatever you want, so you must
already have something you'd want to send to a lot of people.

If you don't have something yet, you could certainly start building your
network first, and then once you've got something to promote
you'll be ready to launch it immediately.

If you do have something to promote, that's when this site
really shines.

6. In Conclusion
----------------

I would recommend this site to anyone who has something to
advertise or promote.

It definitely works, and your downline will grow extremely
fast if you put some energy into first getting it started.

The direct-to-desktop broadcasts are a killer application in today's
online climate, where emails barely get through anymore.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it has
nothing to offer for people who don't have anything to
advertise or promote yet.

If you want to advertise or promote something to a lot of
people in a unique and poweful way, then this site is definitely for
you.

================================================================

At any rate, it's my general opinion that since it's so quick and easy to
set up, and if you have something you want to promote, you
might as well go check it out.

You can always remove the program after you've tried it out if you decide you don't like it.

ListLotto -

If you know how important List Building is for your Business Online and you want a way to help you build your Internet Marketing list with ease, then ListLotto is the ticket...

Lets first look at what ListLotto is:

Its a Downline List Building web site that lets you email the list you build every 5 days.
There are many other sites like this on the market, such as ListDotCom and YourLuckyList and many others.

Each of these sites allow you to build a list, then mail out to that list every few days or so. The incentive is you can grow your list by sharing information about the main site, which in turn attracts new visitors and then means you build a list of your own.

Provided you build the relationship correctly with these people, you can then start to pull them across to your main sites and market to them from there.

In general, these downline list builders will also let you upgrade to a paid membership which gives you more access to mail more people on the site itself.

This is great in the early days of these sites launch as everyone reads the mail from them and you can get a great response.

Where ListLotto has set itself apart from the current trend of list building web sites, is it gives you the potential to email to the entire house list, no matter how big by winning the weekly free draw, hence the name List Lotto!

The cool part is, for every person you refer, you can gain a further entry into the weekly draw, thus making it Viral... Invite more people, the more chances you will have to win the weekly draw.

Now with the appeal this has, it means that thousands of people will be marketing this site with all the great tools included, even Blog Posts :)

The more people promoting, means the BIGGER the list will be on the site... Imagine for one moment the potenial to mail to hundreds, thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of people? Would'nt that be simply AWESOME...

Well now you can...

ListLotto is the ultimate list builder online and its free to get started... You could win the weekly draw and be sending your information to thousands of interested people.. now that sounds like a list I would want to send to..

To your success
