My Affiliate Power Site - A new and exciting program

I'm very excited to announce a brand new program - My Affiliate Power Site. This is a program that I've been working very hard on with Ken Troyer over the last 6 months.

Over the past few years, I have been lucky enough to be able to make a full time income online.

The main reason for this is that I have my own website and list.

If there was one thing that I could recommend to any new person starting out it would be to get your own website so you can focus on building traffic to your site and signups to your list.

Unfortunately, setting up a website can be challenging or very expensive (or both) and if you are new and don't have many technical skills it can be easy to give up due to sheer frustration or lack of money.

Even if you do get your own website, it can often be even more difficult to make changes to it - you need to either be an expert in HTML or understand how to use a special website editor and upload files to your website.

That's why we decided to come up with a website that was both easy and affordable to setup AND could easily be modified and maintained by the owner, without the need for any fancy techie knowledge!

I'm pleased to say that after many months or research and hard work we have come up with the perfect solution:



My Affiliate Power Site - an affiliate website that is very affordable and EASY as pie to make changes to.


This website is so user friendly, it allows you to change the colors, the text, the width, the font and add pages and menu items with out knowing a single bit of HTML.

As long as you understand how to use the internet and send an email to someone you will be able to make this website your own.

You can get started with our system for free by visiting the link below:


If you already have your own website you can also join your system and promote 6 streams of income from a single affiliate link:


Get started now and you could have your own website up and running within the next 48 hours.

Top Business Ideas for 2010


If you are reading this post I'd like to wish you a Happy New Year and I hope you have a very prosperous, healthy and happy 2010!

It is very common in the new year for people to start something new and of course that includes new online businesses! January is one of the busiest and most popular months for starting a business online.

If you are thinking of starting a new business yourself, be sure to do some research first and ensure that you set yourself a monthy budget that you can afford and some goals for what you want to achieve in your new business.

Remember that like all businesses, an online business takes some time and effort before it becomes profitable. Make sure that you have realistic expectations e.g to build an income gradually over many months and years, not days and weeks. Also be sure to be consistent and spend time on your business on a regular basis. You will have a lot to learn so remember that it is normal to feel slightly overwhelmed at first. Just take your time and pace yourself.

Like many people you may be stuck for a business idea. For this reason I am going to reveal my TOP EARNERS of 2009! Below I have listed the 3 business ideas that made me the most money in 2009.

My TOP 3 Earners of 2009:

1) Affiliate Products - In 2009 I made the majority of my income from affiliate marketing. Affiliate products are free to promote and often pay 50% commission or higher per sale. You can join Clickbank for free and start promoting products straight away. If you want to earn big money from affiliate programs you must have your own website. Choose products that you trust and have preferably used yourself. For maximum income find products that pay a recurring commission (e.g. membership sites, hosting) and/or pay a high commission (e.g. 50%). If you are not sure where to start why not pick a ready made Clickbank website or signup for a $1 10 day trial with the Affiliate Power Group and let us help you build a site.

Cost - The cost of running a website is around $10 a year for the domain name and around $10 per month for hosting + some initial investment for setting up your site if you don't want to do it yourself.


2) Multi Level Marketing - MLM came a close second for me in 2009. Many people are put off MLM because they immediately think "pyramid". But MLM just means that you are paid on multiple levels. This means that you earn a percentage of your commissions from other peoples' efforts rather than just your own. As long as you sign up for a company who is reputable and has a solid product you don't have anything to worry about. My #1 MLM opportunity is My World Plus. As a member you will receive an excellent discount card + the opportunity to promote a product that pays very generous commissions and converts like nothing I have seen before. I earned over $6000 from MyWorldPlus over the last 4 months.

Cost - This depends on which program you join. My World Plus is $20 per month, but it is free to take a tour. My other recommendations are Empowerism and GDI.


3) My Own Products - selling your own information products can be a huge money maker. For me this took a bit of a backseat in 2009 as I was focusing on my own Affiliate Marketing websites and coaching over at the Affiliate Power Group. However my various products on Clickbank including 3 Steps to Search Engine Success continued to sell and provide me with a steady income. If you have a strong interest or a skill in a certain area you may want to consider creating your own information product. It is not as hard as it sounds and you can easily outsource some of the work that you don't want to do yourself (e.g. graphics, sales copy, or even writing). I created my first information product (a travel EBook) back in 2005 with the help of the Internet Marketing Center.

Cost - You have your website costs of $10 for a domain name and around $10 a month for hosting plus the costs of developing the product and your website which can vary depending on how much you do yourself.

I hope this gives you a few ideas for your business in 2010. I would like to wish you all the best and please feel free to leave a comment or contact me if you have any questions!

3 Of The Most Popular Legitimate Internet Businesses

In this post we are going to look at three of the most common legitimate internet businesses people are starting and running from the comfort of their own home.

1. Provide a service.

Other Internet business owners will pay you to do things for them. Often they do not have the time to do it themselves. In some instances they do not have the knowledge or the skill level to do it as well.

A perfect example of this is writing blog articles. There are people making great part-time money writing blog articles from home.

There are other Internet marketers who are earning a full time living writing articles on various categories. Besides the money you you make you are never bored as a blog writer. And you are providing a valuable service because there are millions of blogs that need content added to them right now.

2. Sell information products.

You can develop your own information products or sell affiliate products by joining their programs. Information that answers questions and solve people's products sell like hotcakes on the Internet today. ClickBank is an example of a digital information affiliate program you can join for free.

If you would like to create a product of your own you can develop information and sell it in numerous ways including audio and video, ebooks, reports, CDs, and so on.

Whether you create products, or sell other people's products, you can make a lot of money selling information with this legitimate Internet business.

3. Affiliate marketing.

Getting paid to sell other people's products is a fantastic Internet business to be in. There are literally millions of affiliate programs you can join.

This business model has been helping people earn money online for over 15 years. It is one of the most legitimate forms of Internet marketing that the average person can get involved and literally be making money from day one.

Multiple Streams of Residual Income - 4 Ways to do it

Creating Multiple Streams of Residual Income is one of the best ways to protect yourself against failure when making money online. You can take comfort in the fact that you are not relying on one business or one website as your total source of income.

Here are a few ideas for creating multiple streams of residual income.

1. Two-Tier Affiliate Programs: With these types of programs as well as earning a commission for selling a product you will also earn a proportion of the commissions of the sales made by affiliates that you recruit.

If you enjoy networking with people two-tier affiliate marketing is a great way to create a residual income. You get paid to teach people what you are already doing successfully. You can then earn a recurring income whenever one of your affiliate marketers makes a sale.

To focus on residual income, look at affiliate programs that pay every month for just one sale. Examples of these are membership sites and web hosting.

2. Network Marketing: Join a network marketing company and get paid on the efforts of others. Creating multiple streams of residual income is a lot simpler to do in MLM than it has ever been in the past.

It is possible for you to build a multi level marketing (MLM) business without ever leaving the house. Creating a residual income in network marketing happens when you use the power of duplication and build a large network of distributors buying and selling products underneath you.

Again, if you focus on monthly subscription based products and services this will help to increase the residual part of your income.

3. Niche Affiliate Marketing: This is an excellent way to develop a residual income. You do this by creating multiple websites or blogs in different targeted niches.

You then monetize these sites with products that you earn commissions selling. A simple way of doing this is to join affiliate programs and get paid for selling other peoples' products without having to worry about inventory or payment processing.

Creating a residual income stream happens when you start to make money from your websites even when you are not actually actively marketing them.

4. Create your own Products: An example of this is writing EBooks (or getting them ghostwritten) and selling them on Clickbank.com. This is a very good way to continue to make money over and over for doing your work one time.

It is very easy to set up an affiliate program on Clickbank and they handle all the administration such as payment processing and paying affiliates. And they offer you thousands of affiliates to promote your products for you.

If you are just getting started online don't try to do everything at once. Setting up multiple streams of residual income is a good plan, but start with one stream at a time, make it work and then go on to develop another stream.

10 Part Time Internet Business Ideas

Starting a part time internet business from home is one way to to help you earn more money in the current economic climate.

If you already have a job or stay at home to look after your children you probably want to do this on a part time basis. In this article we will give an overview of 10 different part time internet business ideas!

1. Provide a service online for something you have a talent for. Web design is always needed. So is installing a blog, graphic design and search engine optimization.

There are many internet marketers who do not have time to do everything for themselves so they are keen to oursource things. It is possible to make a good income by providing these sorts of services on a part time basis.

2. Sell things on eBay. EBay is still very popular and is an excellent way of making some additional cash in your spare time. Virtually anything can be bought and sold on eBay which makes it possible for you to develop a home business of your own.

3. Start a drop in day care center. Drop-in daycare is interesting in that people do not always know in advance when they might want to do something without their kids. Making yourself available when parents need you most is a great way to make money part time from the comfort of your own home.

4. You could offer tutoring for children who need some extra help wiht their school work. You could specialize in an area that you are talented in such as English or History.

5. Create portraits for families. If you have a talent for painting there is a never ending supply of potential customers for your talents.

6. Set up a scrap booking business. Most people have pictures piled in boxes that need to be neatly organized and you can get paid doing it for them.

7. Do you like pets? Offer to walk, groom, feed, and provide companionship or other things an owner needs help with.

8. Start a resume service. There are more people job hunting at the moment than there has been for a long time and a lot of them do not know how to write a resume.

9. Become a blog writer. There are thousands of blogs online that need someone to help add content to them.

10. Start your own website in a niche that you are interested in or passionate about. Getting paid to sell other people's products in a niche you have an interest in is a great way to make extra money.

As you can see you're only limited in the types of part time internet business ideas you can come up with. If you can solve people problems by filling a need you can get paid to do it.

Free Internet Business Ideas

The failure rate for internet businesses is very high - some say above 95%. However, often the reason for failure is not with the business opportunity, but with the person. It takes a lot of dedication and hard work to start a successful internet business and not many people have the skills or the patience to do this.

This leads to a question of how important is the Internet based business that you join to your success? I would say that it is not as important to your success as you might think. Therefore why not start a free Internet business as opposed to shelling out money to get started?

Examples of free internet business ideas include:

  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Free Paid Surveys
  • Blogging
  • Free "Get Paid To" programs
  • Ebay

We all have distractions in our life and a lot of the time, working on an Internet business takes a lower priority than anything else.

If you're the type of person who is constantly starting things and never finishing them, this is another reason to try and find some free internet business ideas rather than investing a lot of money to get started.

You can find a list of my recommended Free Home Business Ideas here.

There are lots of different way to earn money on the internet, it is just a matter of choosing the method that suits you best. Using the Internet to start an online business of your own makes things far easier than starting from scratch in the offline world.

Here are 5 online business ideas for 2009:

1. Start your own affiliate marketing business. Affiliate Marketing allows you to receive a commission every time you sell someone elses product. Often you can receive commissions as large as 50% and it is easy to get started. You can find a product to sell in virtually any market today as there are literally millions of affiliate programs around the world.

2. Join a network marketing company and work at building a residual income. This has matured into a profitable business model and is a great way to make money online if you enjoy working with people. Building a downline distributorship is one way to create a residual income for a lifetime.

3. Niche marketing is a term that has really taken on a life of its own in the past year and will be an extremely good online business idea in 2009.

Narrowing down a broad theme into a smaller niche is a great way to make money and have fun too. This is especially true if you can find something to sell in an area that you have an interest in or a passion for.

4. Blogging is a good choice if you are good at or enjoying writing. You can also monetize your blog and make money selling advertising on it as your traffic increases.

One easy way to get started with blogging is to create your blog using Blogger.com.com for free. Blogger is a free blogging platform owned by Google and it is very easy to monetize your blog with Google Adsense and get paid every time someone clicks on an ad.

5. Selling private label rights products is a fast way to jumpstart an Internet business. One of the main benefits is that the product idea has already been thought through and created for you.

As a matter of fact most of the product is created and requires just a little bit of modification on your part to have products ready to sell. Another great thing about selling PLR products is that all the profits are yours to keep.

Profitable Home Business Ideas

There are many ways to start a home based business today and the internet has made it easier, cheaper and more achievable. However, like any business, you need to make sure your business ideas are profitable before you start spending lots of time or money on them.

You should start collecting information on the markets you are interested in serving before you get started. It is easy to collect information from online forums to help you. Once you have collected some research data you can then determine whether or not your ideas are profitable.

It makes sense to collect data about your potential customers as part of your research. One way to do this is by offering something for free in return. You can later use this data to advertise to the customers.

If you already have a good profitable business idea you may be able to get funding from investors or the bank to help you. You can apply online for these investors but you should have a good business plan in place. You should ensure that you do a much market research as possible and create some sort of business plan. If you need funding for your business, then doing this work up front will give you a much better chance in receiving funding from potential investors or banks.

Alternatively, how about starting an online business? most online businesses don't need much in the way of capital to get started.

If you don't have any profitable home business ideas yet visit my legitimate home business opportunities page to find some ideas that are suitable for your interests, experience and budget

It is possible to get started online with just a small amount of money to put towards the creation and hosting of your website. You will need to work very hard to have a profitable online business, but the cost of failure is much smaller than it is in the offline world.

Stay at Home Moms Business Opportunity

There is no more noble profession than being a mom. Unfortunately in today's economy having more than one income is necessary. For this reason more mothers are looking for a stay at home business opportunity that allows them to manage their time and also make money.

Here is a possible opportunity that would allow you to work part-time at home as a mom and continue to be a full-time success in that fantastic career.

You should consider starting an Internet business of your own. The great thing about the Internet is it allows you to control your schedule so you can be there for your kids when you need to be.

There are many different ways to make money on the Internet. One of the most common ways that mothers are making money on the Internet today is to start their own affiliate marketing business.

As an affiliate marketer you get paid to sell other people's products, therefore you have a broad range of possible products to choose from.

Depending on the age of your kid, you might want to start an affiliate marketing business around the theme of babies, toddlers, kids, teenagers, or even college kids. You will be able to find products to sell and every one of these niches.

One thing that is beneficial about being an affiliate marketer is you never have to handle the product that you actually sell. You don't even have to collect the money. All of this is done for you by the affiliate merchant.

Your job is to market the affiliate product and sell it. This creates an excellent opportunity for moms to start their own home businesses because they can focus on being Internet marketers and not many of the other things that go with being a business owner in many instances.

When you have an Internet business it is working 24 hours a day even though you are not. It's more than possible to create a full-time income working part-time hours online.

You may find that you work best in the morning while before your kids get up. Some moms get more work done when the kids are off to school. And yet others are night owls and work best after everyone has gone to bed.

It really doesn't matter because as we say the Internet is open 24 hours a day and you are able to control your own schedule, when you have your own home business. The key is that on a part-time business finding the right stay at home moms business opportunity can equal full-time success for you.
