New six to seven-figure opportunity: yet another Internet Hype?

Introduction

If you are anything like me, the words "make money from home", "home based business", and "internet business" cause immediate scepticism and eye rolls. We are always being bombarded by businesses, systems, techniques and all forms of propaganda about making money on-line. We hear far more often of the systems that fail than the one that succeed.

We are financially and mentally hurt by the ones that do NOT work. Now, do we know of any business that succeeds on-line at all? I was not sure. So I started to investigate some offers on the internet.

Opportunities

The amount of offered opportunities is tremendous, as I soon found out. I immediately was thinking: "OMG, this will take the average opportunity seeker for ages, to go through these amounts of information". I mean, if you consider to start an on-line business, than you at least need to inform yourself about what it is and what it can mean for you. And you need to compare it to other offers, is it not? The first one you consider is not necessarily the best one (for you). Seeing how many offers there are (just google the words "home based business"and you see what I mean: around 500 MILLION PAGES are reported to cover that subject). I would say basically it is undo able to really investigate offers, since it will take a life time to only try to find the right one this way.

Back to the Basics

And I apologize because this is what I should have done in the first place. I said to myself: "IF I want an on-line business, WHAT KIND of business should it be? Aha, better start, I think. So now I am on the path to find out what kind of on-line businesses would be available and interesting for me. Googling On-line Business Opportunities does not help much (more than 1 BILLION pages). Now what? Give up? Nope, I really want to become independent, work from home and don't have a boss. Motivation. Start to think for yourself and make a list of possibilities:

1. Selling my own products
2. Selling someone else's products
3. Offering services
4. Don't know yet but probably a lot more

Oke, now I focus on these first three first. I don't have my own product, so no that skips. Number 2 maybe? Well, perhaps, worth looking into, at least. And finally, Offering Services. This is also a maybe for me. I know now how difficult it is to find good on-line business opportunities, but I am learning and why not help people in a later stage with my knowledge (for a price, of course)?

Opportunities (next stage)

Right, I decide to go first for number 2. I am not a salesmen, as a matter of fact I hate the idea to have to phone someone I don't know trying to sell something. So I have my doubts but yet again, at least it is worth exploring. And exploring I did. Jeez, it takes enormous amounts of time to do this. After a month's work in my spare time, I finally had the basics discovered to decide IF: a. there is something interesting for me at all in on-line business and b. what path should I follow? To make it short, and this in no way is meant to discourage you, just to get you SCEPTICAL: the first thing I found out that 95% of the on-line opportunity seekers DON'T succeed. Actually they only lose money, after signing up for whatever possibility. That is to say at least not very encouraging. But I am an optimist, so I said to myself: what the heck, this also means that 5% DO succeed! Compare it to the famous story: Is the glass half empty (pessimist), or is it half full (optimist). OK, Now what? Well, as I discovered, it can be certainly worthwhile selling other peoples products, by promoting their products and earning a commission. They call it Affiliate Marketing (google it: 57 MILLION pages). Yes, I decide to explore that further (57 million is much less than 1 billion :-)).

Affiliate Marketing (or: Selling someone else's products)

"As I discovered the secrets shared, and learned how the business works, I was stunned. It made sense. It was true. It worked, and will work.". That is what I dreamt about night after night after night. That is what I was thinking about day after day after day. Yet again I faced an unbelievable amount of information, opportunities and opinions to investigate. But it turned out finally, after spending 18 months of research, that Niche Affiliate Marketing ((Niche means: focussing on a smaller part of the general market, for instance: General is: Golf (google: 500 million + pages), Niche could be: Golf Balls (google: almost 15 million pages, but a better Niche would be: Personalized Golf Balls (500.000 pages)) is probably the best business to get into as an on-line entrepreneur. You can promote products (and when there is a sale: get a commission) from almost every on-line company in the world, this includes giants like Amazon and many others. I thought: if these companies offer to join their "affiliate marketing" program, then it had to be worthwhile, would it not? Yes, MAYBE, but how to do it so, that I actually earn money. And after that we need to: How to stay alive without a normal job. And then the next and final step: Earn enough money to become FINANCIALLY INDEPENDANT (the ultimate goal, don't you agree?). I am facing now yet another learning curve, since offers to promote from others (affiliate marketing) google 58 million results. Now one thing I have learned being an off-line entrepreneur for almost 25 years is that I DON'T want to reinvent the wheel, I rather choose to learn from those who already have proven success, and want to teach us starters how they did it. (On-line they are generally called: GURU'S :-).

Guru's

Wikipedia on Guru (just kidding, this is my own definition): "The people who are (or feel they should be) considered as real and proven successful experts in the field of knowledge they want to teach to others." OK, finding a Guru is the way to find someone who can teach me to become really successful in my on-line business. I felt more and more to choose Niche Affiliate Marketing as my future on-line business, so I started to search for "Guru's" in this field of expertise.

Disappointment to say the least. This is my personal opinion, guys, so don't hang me if you disagree, but fact is: I found that the 'gurus' were selling re-hashed ideas that never gave me enough information to start making real money. At least, yet again, 95% of them :-). There are some really good, impressive, outstanding coaches (Guru's) that can teach you all there is to know about Niche Affiliate Marketing. And yes, I found some, and yes, I am starting to get successful in Niche Affiliate Marketing. So I know now:

Niche Affiliate Marketing

WORKS. BUT....... There are many things to learn (the best is to find a good coaching program, IMO), this is certainly NOT a Get-Rich-Quick-Scheme, like any off-line business you need to learn and work hard to earn.

Conclusion

So to recap my initial question: Do any on-line businesses succeed at all? Definitely: YES, ....... BUT........ I think if YOU want to succeed on the internet, you should choose to do so in Niche Affiliate Marketing. That is my honest opinion. But it finally is your choice of course. Be always very sceptic on all offers you want to look at, and do that BEFORE you pay, even if there is a money back guarantee (much income is earned from people who sign up for something, don't do anything with it and forgot about the possible reimbursement). Be aware of the fact, even if you are already an expert in your field, there is lots of things you need to learn to become successful on-line. Even IF you use a Guru. And I certainly recommend a Guru, but yet again, there are only a few people who are really successful on-line and even much and much less really good Guru's who can teach you to become successful. So beware who you choose as your mentor! Stay always SCEPTICAL!

Making money from Sports Betting Affiliate Programs

There is a new and explosive trend in the world of gambling and sports betting—Internet sports betting. People are finding out in droves through Internet searches and word of mouth how simple it is to bet on sports on the World Wide Web. The Internet is saturated with new ideas and schemes to ‘get rich quick’—but few are successful, except if you are dealing in sports betting. The introduction of the Internet has especially opened the floodgates for the sports betting industry. The Internet finally allowed websites and their owners to tap into an audience and membership worldwide instead of only a local audience. The diversity of members has increased the feasibility of the sports betting industry online and has created one of the chief and most commanding online sectors. These sports betting websites turn over billions of dollars every year and are growing more and more every day.

What if I told you that you could make money as a sports betting affiliate without ever risking even a penny of your own money? It’s true. There are literally thousands of sports betting websites all vying for a piece of the pie. The big money is not only being made by the facilitators of the sports betting websites, but rather by an affiliate system. The sports betting affiliate program is evident on most of the sports betting and gambling websites. They offer a bounty and/or revenue sharing program to help advertise their particular sports betting website, hopefully above the others.

Bounty sharing, in terms of sports betting affiliate systems, offers you a reward for attracting a new, paying customer. You, as an affiliate, can do this by word of mouth, directing traffic on your website to a particular sports betting website and advertising. This is a ‘take the money and run’ effort—a one time payment for your efforts of drawing in new, paying customers.

However, bounty sharing may not be the most profitable venture in the long run. Many sports betting websites offer a revenue sharing affiliate program. The programs offered vary slightly from company to company, however the generalized idea is that you earn a percentage of the money spent by a player, which usually runs between 20 and 35 percent and in some cases, you can also earn money on player deposits. 20 percent may not seem like very much money, but it can indeed add up to a large amount of cash—your cash—as you build your referral base of paying sports betters. As they say, “the bookie never loses”—you are placing your bets on the right side of the coin by joining as an affiliate.

Let’s face it—advertising is expensive and getting yourself to the top of the ‘Google scale’ is nearly impossible without investing thousands and thousands of dollars and then the websites have to worry about getting people to click specifically on their website. There is a better way for them to market their sports betting website. A way to stretch their dollar further and work that much harder for them—by paying you to advertise for them. Nothing travels faster than word of mouth advertising—by placing a banner on your website, which already generates traffic, they only pay you for the paying customers that your website or link generates for their sports betting site.

Do not confuse this for a ‘click-through’ program—it’s not. This type of sports betting affiliate program requires the customer that clicks through your banner/website/link to actually sign up to the sports betting website, deposit money and gamble it. What do they have to lose? Twenty percent of how much ever much money your clientele spends. That leaves the sports betting website 80 percent of the pie, which in turn equals cheap advertising and marketing for them, and possibly mega bucks for you.

As your paying referred clientele list grows with the sports betting affiliate program, so will your earnings. Think about it—if you have 10 people who spend $100 dollars a month at the sports betting website, you have earned yourself $200 with very little work. If you have 50 paying referrals who each spend $250 a month—at 20 percent you have just earned yourself $2,500 for simply directing traffic from your website to sign up on a sports betting site.

What’s more, you have nothing to lose and money to gain. Even if your referred clients win big throughout the month, most sports betting affiliate programs do not carry over a negative balance. The more of your own advertising you do for the company, the sweeter your own rewards will be. What are you waiting for? The time to act is now—it is never too late to get a piece of this fast-growing evolution in gambling.
