Short Links: The Basics

Short links are fantastic because they take long URL’s and … well … shorten them. Today we take them for granted. There were services like TinyURL years ago (that’s still going) but it was Twitter that really made them explode on the scene. It was also just one of those times when people were fed up trying to type out an obscenely long URL or pasting it in their emails which always look junky. Once short links became a thing there has been some “dark” times with them because people were quick to exploit them (some still do) but out … Continue reading

How To Choose Your Website Site Topic [Part 2]

Sometime way back in 2013 I wrote a post that gave five different ways to find niche topics for building affiliate websites. The main methods were: Using a hobby Focusing on popular products Picking a passionate topic Going off with a book Tapping into the community These are all great methods that hold up to this day but there were many others I had in mind when writing the post so I figured it would be a good time to divulge a few of those ideas. I’m not going to list out niche site ideas (in no particular order or … Continue reading

Productive Activities (for when you’re not doing Affiliate Marketing)

How-To Get Past Spam Filters In Your Email Marketing

There’s nothing worse than loading up an email, sending it out, and it hitting the spam folder of your recipients. Spam folders instantly put a block to your email marketing efforts which is often the bread and butter when it comes to earning affiliate commissions. Doubly worse is when you’ve created an email course but your audience only receives a portion of it. Suddenly the emails are out of order and you start losing interest in the subscribers. The reason for your emails landing in spam can come from many different situations. If you don’t want them being there then … Continue reading

Worthwhile Strategies to Build Better Business Connections during Conferences

Although we have all this amazing technology to conduct online presentations, meetings, and webinars there is much to be desired. The online options give us a lot of flexibility. We aren’t wasting our time and money to go out to hold these discussions. What it does lack is a certain feeling of personality. When we are sitting behind the screens we can’t connect as we would being face-to-face, shaking hands, and being in good company. The physical interaction is just as important as mental stimulation when building relationships. How does one go about building better relationships? The best way to … Continue reading

How to Keep Track of Viral Internet Trends

One day it’s there and the next day it’s gone. Trends, on the Web, can happen in a day and fizzle by the end of the night. Memes rise and fall before they’re even noticed. It’s one big flash in the pan. Sometimes things stick around but generally only for a few weeks (or a month/two at tops) because Web users feed on new content and trends. They are always digging around for something new, exciting, nostalgic, controversial, or simply something they can get behind. Let’s face it Unless you’re some dedicated social user for a site that tracks Web … Continue reading
