Product Reviews – Do People Read Them? Does it Matter?

Product Reviews Have Many Benefits

product reviewsI write a lot of product reviews here on my site.  It’s not all I do, but there are tens of thousands of products in the make money online niche and people are interested in knowing if they’re any good before they spend their money on them.  I don’t blame them; most of the products in this niche are scams of some sort, or they’re selling rehashed information that might have worked ten years ago but won’t help you make money now.

I go to a lot of trouble to make sure that my product reviews are accurate, and I rarely review a product for which I don’t have access to it.  I want to see what it’s about before I tell my readers what they might be getting into.  My traffic stats show that it’s the reviews that bring most of the visitors to my site.  Funny thing though – my email suggests that a lot of these people aren’t reading the reviews at all.

Making Money – Start Here

Making Money – Where to Start

making money onlineI get a lot of questions about making money online.  Often, people will ask me about specific products.  “Will this product allow me to make money?”  I say no.  “How about this one?”  I say, “I reviewed that, and it’s not a good product.”  “Is this one any better?  I need to make money!”

Questions like these are common, but they’re also the wrong questions.  A lot of people see ads for products in the make money niche that claim they’ll make it easy for you to earn $100, $500 or even $1000 per day.  Often they’re sold with claims of “push-button ease,” “autopilot profits,” or “make money while you sleep.”  Some of these products are actually capable of helping you make money, but if you’re new, you’re destined to fail, even with the good ones.  Why?

Make Money Online – Why Systems Fail

Make Money Online – The Constantly Changing Game

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

make money online in 2016I’ve been working in the make money online niche for more than ten years now, and in that time, I have built more than two thousand Websites.  I’ve written ebooks.  I’ve sold training programs.  I’ve worked as an affiliate marketer for dozens of companies.  I’ve sold products via direct retail (and still do.)  There have been times when I was very successful, times when I wasn’t, and times when things were steady, but unspectacular.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my decade as an Internet marketer, it’s that change is a constant companion.  Something will work really well one day, bring in lots of cash, and then…nothing.  Sometimes, it’s worse than nothing, when you suddenly find yourself losing money doing something that was profitable just a short time ago.  Why does this happen?   Why do plans to make money online work one day and not the next?

How to Make Money Online – A Few Ideas That Work

How to Make Money Online

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

how to make money onlineA lot of people want to know how to make money online, and people search for that particular phrase more than one hundred thousand times every month. That’s not surprising, really, as a lot of people have jobs that they don’t really like very much. With the Internet, there are a lot of opportunities for people who want to learn how to make money online.

Plus, working from home is fun. You work at your own pace, and ideally, you work doing something you enjoy. It can be a much less stressful way of earning a living than grinding it out at a job you hate.

The problem for many people is that when they search for how to make money online, they can’t tell the difference between the genuine opportunities and the work from home scams. There are plenty of both, but if you’re a newbie or just getting started, it can be difficult to tell the difference between what works and what is simply going to take advantage of you.

7 Tips to Increase Affiliate Marketing Sales

Affiliate Marketing Triggers

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

People like to buy things, but they’re often looking for reasons not to buy.  That may seem odd, but in the affiliate marketing business, buyers are fickle and competition is fierce.  If people aren’t buying from you or through you, they’ll likely buy from someone else.  That’s why you absolutely have to present whatever it is you’re selling in the best possible light.

affiliate marketing in 2016Over time, it has become apparent that there are a certain number of “triggers” that can inspire people to make the decision to purchase.  While not all of these can necessarily be incorporated into the sales page for one product, most of the time, you’ll see several of them at once on the sales page for any product being sold online.  There’s a reason for that – these things work.  In this blog post, I’ll cover a list of the 7 things that marketers use most often in order to persuade people to buy.  These tips work for both affiliate marketing and for direct sales.  In the end, it’s simply about persuading people to buy, rather than giving them a reason to go buy from one of your competitors.

If there’s one thing I see a lot in the course if this business, it’s desperation.  I see it on marketing forums and I see it in the email messages I receive from this site.  “I really need money.  Please help.”  “What can I do to make money today?”  Desperation comes in varying degrees, of course; some people are literally starving while others are simply out of work and have no income.  They’ve heard that there are ways of making money online, and they are hoping that someone, somewhere, will tell them “the secret” so that they can start earning piles of cash.
