PayDotCom - Affiliate Marketing

PayDotCom hails itself as a ClickBank alternative. You can promote anything you find in the PayDotCom marketplace, which is separated into categories. Each individual category also ranks the items, so you know which ones are more popular.

Once you choose something to promote, you get a page where you can get your promotional links and any promotional tools provided by the vendor. These might include email ads and classified ads for instance.

When you get a sale, you'll be notified by email if you choose that option. You'll usually get paid for all sales (check, Paypal, Stormpay) in a month by the 15th of the next month. The actual date of payment depends on the vendor because they have to mass pay.

So far, I've made a small amount in commissions from a few sales here and there through Adwords.

How To Build Wealth And How To Reach Your Financial Freedom

To build wealth, you have to think like a rich person as Yahel states. Do you think rich people think like poor people? And poor people think like rich people? Nope - rich people think like rich people. They have the right mindset and they know where they are headed and how to get there. Secondly, you have to gain some money knowledge. Learn how to build your wealth with the money flow you have. Learn about investments, stocks, bonds, leveraging your money, etc. Read some books and articles and get educated. It never hurts to invest in yourself. Thirdly, you have to implement the strategies above. Information is useless, unless you take action with that information. Go out there and reach your financial goals! Make some money and start building wealth.

How To Build Wealth And How To Reach Your Financial Freedom

By Yahel Hikri

For a long time I have been thinking to my self, how can I build my wealth?

In this article I will present my answer to this question. If you have a steady job (maybe even two), with long working hours each week, this article is for you. You will learn the steps you need to take in order to build your income and control your financial world.

It had all begun, when I realized that I should do something more, to generate extra income, but what? I also realized, that there aren’t enough hours in the day to take up extra work in another job and even then, how much more can I earn? Out of multiple jobs or from working over time, I will not triple my income or make enough money to start building my wealth.

So what should you do? How do you actually become rich? Does it happen only by getting an inheritance, or by passive income generating from many assets? All these are great, but I don’t have them - yet.
Then, I discovered that I should start thinking differently and start doing things in a different way than the way I did things until now.

The answer to “how to become rich” begins with this basic equation – the total of all earnings should be grater then the total of all expenses (you must know that equation). Although it is a simple one, the human nature does not enable its existence in a proper way. If it is on account of habitual expanses or the aspiration to modernize the living standard and its quality, if for ourselves or in order to provide the competitive-social urge.

In order to become rich, a number of conditions should be met:

1. You need to start thinking like a rich man, i.e. to know at any given moment how much money do you have and how these funds are distributed – Is it allotted to luxury, to expenses of sustenance, or on investments, etc.? (you can do it by reading Kiyosaki’s book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad")

2. It is up to you, to acquire a suitable education in the field of money management in the most basic level, such as, How to leverage your extra money (there is always extra, "luxury" money, it all comes down to the question of preferences)? You need to learn how to manage risks in online and offline investments, the stock exchange or even at your own bank.
Then, with that "luxury" money and with the proper leveraging, you will be able to invest in opportunities that will yield a passive income on a monthly basis for a meaningful yearly extra income.

3. Last but certainly not least, you must take the first step ahead and decide to implement sections 1 and 2. You must understand, those two simple (but hard to do) sections, are the only thing that separates you from having financial freedom.

No, it is not easy and also requires great courage, therefore, 95% of the population remains only with the desire to be rich. If you didn't inherit large amounts of money or assets, you need to know that to become rich or a millionaire, does not happen over night. This is a process you should endeavor for and build gradually by thinking and planning for the long run in order to succeed; But it is definitely possible.

If you will not make any changes in your present carrying on, in another five or ten years from now, there will be no drastic change in your financial status. The good news is, that you can implement the steps described above, change your expanse habits and your financial decisions and make the dream to become rich come true.

Who are those rich, millionaire people? They are people like you that have the courage to think and do things differently, they don’t necessarily have high education or have received a big inheritance. They simply dared to think on a major scale and took the risk, which lies within the change itself. I have realized that not everyone wants to be rich and not everyone should be rich, but if you imagine yourself with financial freedom and dare to dream, you should know, it is within your possibility to arrive there.

How to Get Ideas For Your Own Products

A good way to make money online is to sell your own
product. That way, you can recruit others to help
you sell your product through your own affiliate

You have to have an idea for a product first though.
Getting ideas for your own products is not that hard.
Do you know people who have problems? (who doesn't?).
People want their problems solved and they're willing
to pay for it.

How to Get Ideas For Your Own Products

By Marlon Sanders


This weekend I dropped by Circuit City to
buy a couple electronic gizmos.

While there, I noticed they had these totally
smoking hot new DVD RECORDERS.

You heard right. These puppies are not just

They record!

I felt this big rush of excitement as I thought,
"Wow, this makes it brain dead simple to transfer
some of my old VHS speeches to DVD. Not to
mention the ability to record TV programs straight
to DVD.

"What's more, I can plug my video camera right
into the front of it using the i-link (firewire)
thingy and record video straight to DVD.

How handy.

So I whipped out my debit card and snagged myself
one of 'em.

....When I got home, the fun began.

I hooked it up. Pushed record and...


All I got was an error message saying I had to take
the DVD through set up.

I tried and tried. Couldn't do it. To say it
wasn't "intuitive" would be an understatement.

I took a break. Got frustrated. Decided to read
the stupid manual.

Of course, I have a cable box. And NONE of the
hook up instructions covered how to hook it up
if you had cable.


So I go back to the store I bought it from and asked
for instructions. I bought a bunch more cords and
stuff. Hooked it up like the guy at the store said.


So I actually went to a DIFFERENT store and bought
another one, planning on returning the first one.
The second one had the same exact idiot set up
screen and manual as the first one.

Different product. Same manual!

Geez Louise.

Now, I'm already missin' more hair in the middle
of my head than I'd quite honestly prefer. But
I'm pretty sure now I'm missing even more.

'Cause I started pulling it out!

Well, it still doesn't work.

Why am I telling you this story? Because I went
to the bookstore and bought a book about hooking
up this kind of stuff. Didn't solve my problem.

But what it shows is that when people have a
problem causing them aggravation, they'll pay
to fix it. And every aggravation you have is
an opportunity to make money by selling something
that fixes the aggravation.

The other thing I can tell you is that there are
only three basic things we sell: Time, money and

Whatever you sell either saves people time, money
or energy (for example, eliminating frustration).
Or it helps the person have more of thoses things
in some way or the other.

The next time you are about to pull your hair
out, here's what I want you to think, "Someone
is going to make a fortune by solving this

And sooner or later maybe a problem will come
along where YOU decide to be the one who
solves it and makes a fortune doing so.

THAT is how you get great ideas for your
own products.

Best wishes,

Marlon Sanders

Infinite Web Traffic - Free eBook

Making money with by promoting one affiliate program at a time may be fine and dandy for you. Sometimes it's just easier to promote just one. With multiple affiliate programs, it may be harder to promote them all but you'll effectively diversify your income stream. It may be more work to handle unless you combine the promotion of several affiliate programs. Now how can you do this? Well, eBooks are a great example.

For example, take a look at the free eBook Infinite Web Traffic if you're interested in getting endless Internet traffic. You'll notice that it promotes multiple traffic generation companies. And each company has its own affiliate program, so not only can you generate traffic, you can get paid from these companies!

The eBook is free so it also has a viral component to it. That it, people you give the eBook to may pass it along to others, who may pass it along to others, and so on. If you get it out there to enough people using the recommended traffic generation methods, it could keep spreading and spreading. But this depends on factors such as market saturation and the probability that someone will pass that Infinite Web Traffic eBook along.

Autosurfs Hit Hard

Well, it's obvious that autosurfs were hit hard with the whole StormPay saga. Some autosurfs had to close down. They couldn't possibly recoup the funds that were stolen by StormPay, who decided to freeze autosurf accounts with their spontaneous assumption that they are ponzi schemes. Actually, I believe they had a predetermined plan scheming out how they could find a way to "improve" their funds. Like using a "third"-party verification system to extract fees from members now in exchange for reduced fees.

Payment processors can be unpredictable or inadequate in certain areas. Of course, it's impossible to meet everyone's expectations and companies like to protect their bottom line.

What can we learn from this? When money is involved, things can get hairy.

Don't put all your cards in one deck (or eggs in one basket). Make sure you're not dependent on one single source, unless that source is really dependable. Maybe if you control of that source you could put all your cards into it. Sometimes there are also issues with diversifying too much. For example, it gets much harder to manage everything, and with the case of payment processors, it becomes easier to commit fradulent transactions.

It's good to see that there are autosurfs standing tall in the face of adversity. These autosurfs could have simply folded up and said "no refunds", but they did not.

An excellent autosurf to check out is eProfitSurf, which combined with its former sister site, Merging all of those accounts must have been monstrous!
