Wish You Could Live the Laptop Lifestyle?

No matter what people tell you, there are only two ways to make money online.

1.  Sell something

AND

2.  Find others to join your team in selling something

You can do #1 without #2, but, in order for an opportunity to be legal, you can not do #2 without #1.

When you sell something, you earn commission.  Some companies will pay you 5%, some will pay 30%.  Some even pay as high as 40%.  How is that possible?  Well…generally, the product goes from the manufacturer through a bunch of middle men (who mark up the price at each step), and eventually is sold to the end consumer.

Generally, when you buy into a home based business, the product goes from the manufacturer through the company to the end consumer.  This way, the end price can be marked up, but there is no mark up from the middle men, so the company can pay you a commission for bringing them the end consumer.

I’m sure you’ve heard that some colleges are offering online education.  Convenience learning is a huge market in this day and age.  People love the idea of learning from the comfort of their home.

The products that I sell are online education for people who want to market their businesses on the internet.  Because they are made and delivered electronically, the manufacturing and delivery costs are very low.  The company, charges an affiliate fee of $20/mo., which covers these costs.  The commission that I make is 100% on what I sell.

100% is unheard of in the affiliate marketing arena.

Tomorrow, I will tell you a little about the team of wonderful people that I work with to build my business.  We are called the eBananas.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please let me know.

Is Social Spark a Scam?

I haven’t completely figured that out yet, but I’m working on it for you.  SocialSpark is a company that matches bloggers with advertisers.  Advertisers have products or services that they want to get the word out about.  They go to Social Spark to find bloggers who will review their products and/or services and get matched up. The blogger writes a review, gives SocialSpark permission to post it to their blog and they review it and post it.  The blogger gets paid a pre-determined amount for the post.

One HUGE problem that I see is they use Google Analytics to make the determination of which and how many offers the blogger gets.  As you may know, I do NOT like Google Analytics.  My visitor rankings are way higher than GA puts them at.  At the time of writing this post, my PR is 2.  It’s not easy to get to a PR2.  I write a post and within minutes it is indexed in the search engines.

I’ve been signed up for SocialSpark for over a week or so and have referred two bloggers to them but have received NO offers.  Supposedly offers come in on a daily basis.  But…the advertiser does not choose the blogger, Social Spark does.  And they do not take the entire picture into consideration when making you offers.  I’d hold off on this one for a bit.  It can be frustrating if you are counting on getting paid in the near future for writing blog posts.

There are many other ways to make money with your blog.  Don’t do this one unless you are an established blogger and just want to try something different like I’m doing.

UPDATE – Unless you are the type of person who likes to sit around, do nothing and NOT make money, do not get involved with SocialSpark. They have visited my blog via numerous google searches and KNOW that I can write a post and have it indexed ON PAGE ONE in google search results in a matter of minutes and STILL will not give me offers because they are too dependent on something that does not work properly (Google Analytics).

 

UPDATE 2 – It’s been a little over a month since I joined Social Spark and they are STILL not giving me offers.  Why?  Because they are depending on Google Analytics to tell them how good my blog is.  LOL…that’s a JOKE.  You most likely found this post because you did a search for information about Social Spark.  It’s on page ONE of the search results in google and has been since about 12 minutes after I wrote the post.  BUT…I still get no offers.  I don’t think they are a scam per se, but they are not a good company to try to make money with.  That’s MY opinion. 

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What will you do with it?
