Cashcrate Review

I just joined a program called CashCrate a couple of weeks ago and I am pretty excited by both the fact that I have (a) already earned money from this, with very little effort and (b) the potential for earning money from this is HUGE. The fact that this is completely FREE to join and doesn't even have an option for paying any kind of membership fee or upgrade makes it all the more exciting.

Here is a review of the CashCrate Program, which you can join now for free and make a good $20 or $30 in the next hour while sitting on your bum in front of your computer (watching the TVat the same time if you like :-)

What is CashCrate?
CashCrate is a free to join "Paid To" program that will pay you money (in US $$) for completing various offers in the form of short surveys, competitions, forms, trail offers etc. As soon as you sign up you will be presented with a selection of offers along with a link to the offer and a payment. Payment can be as little as 0.40, as much as $35. Typically a payment is around 50-70cents and will usually take you a few minutes to complete.

Who can Join?
CashCrate is open to everyone over the age of 13 years old. Despite the fact that the payment is in US $, you do not have to be a US resident. I am based in the UK and found that there were plenty of offers.

Why do CashCrate pay people to Complete Offers?
Companies need to advertise and/or get people's opinions on new products and services. They often do this using short surveys, prize draws, opinion polls, competitions, trial offers and so on. Cash Crate are paid by these advertisers and will pass on the majority of their earnings to you.

Is there a charge for membership to CashCrate?
No, absolutely not. CashCrate is 100% free and there is no charge for joining.

Do I get rewarded for referring others?
Yes, referring others can make you a lot of money. You will earn up to 30% of the earnings of all the earnings of people whom you refer. Note that this does not impact their earnings - they will still earn the same amount as you would for completing the same offer. Since CashCrate is free, it is much easier to refer others to than a paid program would be.

Do I need a credit card?
No. A few of the offers involve signing up for a trial of something using a credit card, but most of the offers are completely free and you will never be asked for credit card details.

How do I get Paid?
You will get paid by check once your earnings have reached a minimum of $10. $10 is pretty easy to achieve and shouldn't take you long. You can increase the minimum payment if you prefer. I set the minumum to $50 for myself since I am in the UK and we get charged for paying in US$ checks. Payments are processed on the 20th of the month, so all of your July earnings would be sent to you by August 20th.

Do I need to refer people to earn money?
No, not at all. You can earn money by completing offers yourself. Referring people gives you the potential to earn even more.

How do I Join?
Just click here to join CashCrate and fill in the signup form. Within a few minutes you can be earning money.

James Martell's Online Affiliate Bootcamp

Online BootCamp Gets Affiliate Marketers Making Money Quickly By Reducing Learning Curve And Providing Answers

By Kellie Fowler

If you’re struggling to keep up with busy schedules, growing time constraints, escalating financial issues, and a family that you yearn to spend more time with, you’re not alone.

Like you, more and more people are fed up with the 9-5 grind and with putting in overtime hours and efforts that go above and beyond only to receive disappointing paychecks.

Understandably, they feel they are missing out on life and looking for legitimate ways to generate additional revenue without resorting to just another low-paying part-time job.

And, as many of these people have found, the answer they are looking for can be found in affiliate marketing.

With little start-up costs and the only resources needed including just a computer and Internet access, this online publishing business is freeing people up to live their lives to the fullest, all
the while finally achieving financial freedom, while simultaneously spending more quality time with family and friends.

It may sound too good to be true, but it’s not.

Better yet, you can learn the techniques and strategies used every day by James Martell, a successful affiliate marketer, in his online course, to be conducted one evening per week for eight weeks.

It’s called the Affiliate Marketers BootCamp - Online "Night School" Edition and “seats” do fill up fast!

Why? Because Martell has been successfully teaching students how to create profitable affiliate marketing businesses for years.

See for yourself what one Martell student says about the BootCamp training:

“In the past, I've attended several seminars with multiple speakers. None came close to James' powerful, articulate, hands-on, gritty presentation. He's by far the best Instructor I've been privy to hearing... and grasping.”

Martell BootCamp student Darryl Ruff agrees:

“I’m a slow learner, but James makes things simple to understand. Would I attend another BootCamp as a refresher? In a heartbeat!”

Martell’s BootCamp students consistently give the training an enthusiastic thumbs-up, with BootCamp student Sheldon Smollan calling the BootCamp “a genesis opportunity.”

But never before has this “opportunity” been offered online, allowing Martell’s students to save time, money and the associated travel, which means everyone now has the chance to achieve true online success – and from the comfort of their own homes, with Martell looking over their shoulder every step of the way and available to answer questions, address concerns, and more.

So, even if you already have Martell’s top-selling Affiliate Marketer’s Handbook, or listen to his engaging weekly audio newsletter, the Affiliate Buzz, this online course curriculum may be just what you need to propel your online efforts to sure-fire success.

And if you are not familiar with “Martell’s book, buzz and bootcamp” (as they are referred to throughout the industry), you can get everything you need now in this exciting and informative first ever online BootCamp course.

“I believe my experience at (Martell’s off-line) BootCamp was the best investment I've ever made in myself, in my family, and in our dreams, explains BootCamp attendee Denis Vaillancourt. This opportunity has energized and motivated me to get to the next level of my affiliate marketing career. I'm confident in my future success now because of me BootCamp experience.”

Understanding from students like Vaillancourt the overwhelmingly positive impact the BootCamp has made on their personal, professional, and financial lives, Martell has searched for some time for a way to personally deliver his training “live” to his worldwide audience, but it wasn’t until recently that he found the robust technology he felt truly mirrored the personal training he painstakingly delivers through his off-line BootCamps.

So, just a few weeks back when Martell was exposed to an online conference room that would allow him to present the entire BootCamp using his PowerPoint presentation, live videos and live audio feeds, he knew he found the answer - and the first ever online affiliate marketer’s course curriculum was born.

Structured much like a night-school course, the curriculum will be delivered by Martell “live” in eight classes.

Martell will dedicate each class to covering one of the eight steps outlined in his recently refreshed Affiliate Marketer’s Handbook - "2006" (THIRD EDITION).

Students can watch via the Internet as Martell personally delivers the powerful tutorials that allow students to watch him as goes step-by-step through all the stages of building a website, finding products to promote, determining which companies to partner with as affiliates, adding keyword-rich content to his site and submitting his site to the search engines.

What’s more, Martell’s online students will participate in live, interactive question and answer sessions, and be on track to complete weekly assignments all of which, when added together, make the online BootCamp experience as effective as the off-line BootCamp experience.

And because you’re learning from someone who uses these same eight steps day-in and day-out to maintain his own enviable success, you bypass the steep learning curve associated with affiliate marketing and can be up and running and making money in a matter of weeks, after implementing Martell’s proven eight steps - which have more than withstood the test of time,
much like Martell himself.

What this means for you is that you can get your online business up and running faster and you can be assured that, once you implement the eight steps just as Martell details them, you’ll be on your way to making money – be it part-time or full-time – from the comfort of your own

Now, you really can take control of your future and your family’s future and steer it in the direction of financial freedom, allowing you to determine how much you work and even how much you make.

So, the big question is: What’s stopping you?

You and your family are worth it and this online training is, as Martell’s students have pointed out, the chance of a lifetime.

All you have to do is grab it.

Do you Suffer from Information Overload?

Do you ever suffer from information overload? Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed at that overstuffed inbox, or feel like you will never know enough to succeed in your internet marketing or home business? Every day you are bombarded with new pieces of information, emails to read and answer, new reports and e-books to download, courses to purchase, training to go through, communication for affiliate programs you have joined, forum posts to read or the next “guru” telling you that you have to buy their product.

If this is a problem for you, you are not alone! It is very common for people to feel overwhelmed when they try to start their own internet business or get involved in internet marketing to make some extra money online. I felt the same way when I started out over three years ago. The good news is that this feeling will lessen over time. Now and then I still feel that old familiar feeling of information overload sinking in, but it certainly not as severe as it was when I first started out.

Here are some tips to help you get on your way to feeling like a normal person again…

(1) Accept that you will never know everything. You don’t need to know everything about internet marketing and it is unlikely that you ever will. Your knowledge will increase over time naturally, but don’t beat yourself up about your lack of knowledge. Take a deep breath and don’t let yourself feel overwhelmed or in a panic about this.

(2) Keep your Email Organised. This is extremely important. In the information age we are bombarded by emails. Some emails are for information only and others are from people who often expect an immediate reply. The best thing to do here is to create folders in your email program for different types of emails. For example I have folders for receipts, invoices, download links, affiliate program communications, login information etc. When you are reading your email you can file emails into the appropriate folder instead of feeling the need to read them instantly. For example you may have just joined an affiliate program and they are sending you tips by email. You may find this information useful, but you are not ready for all these tips yet. If this is the case just file these emails in a folder and study them at a point in the future when you are ready.

(3) Keep a To-Do list. It is always helpful to put together some sort of plan or “to-do” list. I have a master list with everything that I want to do in the long term and I also have a list of things that I would like to do in the near future e.g. for the next week or fortnight. If I think of something new, which is not urgent I add it to my master list rather than my short term list. This helps to prevent me from becoming distracted and keeps me focused on the things that are immediately important.

(4) Learn to use the Unsubscribe Link. This sounds very obvious, but how many newsletters or ezines are you subscribed to? Are you getting value from them? Do you have the time to read them? If the answer to either of these questions is no, then click on that unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email!

(5) Consider Outsourcing. It’s not possible to be an expert in everything. For example, I am good at building and updating websites, but I am useless at creating graphics and using photo or graphic editing software. Rather than spend hours trying to learn these skills I pay someone to create graphics for my site. You can outsource people to write articles for you, design websites, update your website, write your sales copy and more. Concentrate on the things that you are good at (or that you enjoy and want to be good at) and this will help ease the pain of information overload.

The next time you are feeling overwhelmed, take a deep breath, realise that you are not alone in feeling this and read these 5 tips to help you get back on track.
