When you're trying to make money on the internet, especially from flipping sites or selling virtual real estate, a domain name on its own is not worth very much. And even if your domain name is worth something, it's worth a lot more if it contains content. Because think about it, if you own a very high demand domain name such as a.com name with one or two English words that's very short and has a high search volume, people would want to buy that domain name because it will get them lots of traffic. But that'll be worth even more if you did something with the traffic before they even had access to it.
For example, what if you took that high value domain name and wrote and developed lots of content on a site to get lots of traffic, to get lots of high page rank, SEO ranking, to get lots of pages listed in Google which now people can use to link somewhere else? What if you set up an opt-in form on that web page and built up several hundred subscribers per day? And now when it comes time to sell that domain name, you're selling not just the domain name, but a domain name, an already developed website, lots of high page rank, lots of organic SEO results and a large number of subscribers. Now that domain name can sell for many multiples of what you would have sold before.
In that line of thinking, a domain name on its own is almost worthless. Whether using it on your own or selling it to someone else, it's worth a lot more if you build it up. And the best way to build it up is using a platform called WordPress. WordPress powers all kinds of popular sites including CNN, Tech Crunch and more. And you can make it look any way you want. Sites entirely made of video are hosted on WordPress. Magazine sites, multi-author sites or just simple blog journals are all run on WordPress.
Get your content set up. All the categories, pages, videos, and fill it up and start measuring what kind of daily traffic do you get. If you have ads, what kind of daily profits, income, do you get from that site? And now when you list this on Flipper or Site Point, you're not listing just the domain name, you're listing a business in a box. You're listing a site that has traffic, that has search engine rankings, that has consistent income which is much more valuable than a simple.com name. That's all for now,

So how many times have you seen someone offer you a
free trial of something or other, but to get started
you need to provide a credit card number, or use your
PayPal account to sign up.
A lot of services or products even ask that you pay
ONLY $1 to start any sort of trial and act as if you
are getting an incredible value.
But what they are really doing is getting your credit
card number or PayPal account locked into their auto
re-billing feature and hiding behind their real motive
simply by telling you that it is for your convenience.
It is a well known fact that many people who offer
products or services are making more money due simply
to people forgetting to cancel these auto re-bills.
Now I'm not in any way speaking for all marketers.
Many do in fact provide great value and are trying to
make things easier, but it is also an overly abused
marketing tactic to make the product or service owner
a lot of extra recurring income.
You see a lot of unethical marketers know that most
of the time you will forget about the trial and a few
months later you will finally notice that you have been
charged XX dollars every month. Guess who makes a pile
of money that way. That's not cool man.
So it is something to watch out for when signing up
to any free trials of anything.
On a total flip side, here's an example of a guy who
has an insanely good free trial offer, but you don't
have to give your credit card or PayPal account up
front. It's just a free trial, because he believe it
works and is not hiding behind anything!
Go Here For Your Trial
It's a no obligations 90 Day Free Trial of what's
called the Smart Subscriber marketing system. His name
is Ian and he's been an online marketer for over a
decade and claims he will make you money through
affiliate commissions just to prove his service is
worth paying for!
With no credit cards or PayPal account stuff upfront,
I'd say that's a pretty rock solid and safe free trial.

If you have ever wondered how you can make a full time income from affiliate marketing and even make a good income to boot, listen up: you need training. Not just any training, but the right training.
You can't just promote your affiliate links, you need your own website or newsletter. Preferably both. And you need to have your own newsletter and build your own list. In short, you need to treat it as a business, because that is what it is.
The hardest part of being an affiliate and owning your own website is getting traffic to it. If you don't have traffic to your website you may as well give up now, before you have even started. Right up there with the best traffic generation methods is search engine optimisation. This is why having your own website is important. The company you sell for has affiliates as part of their marketing plan. What is your marketing plan?
So you need to learn how to work WordPress, about search engine optimisation, other traffic generation methods, email marketing, article writing and other aspects of internet marketing. You need to learn about testing your marketing to see if it converts, and you need to learn about split testing.
And if you're asking if it is really necessary to learn all this, the answer is a resounding "YES!" Not only will it help you make sales, but it will determine the quality of your sales success. It will give you valuable skills, and it will grow your online paycheque.
Where are you going to learn all this? There are many online courses that cost from a one off $27 payment to a monthly fee of $67. Which one to get would be the problem.
When you look for an affiliate course, you should look for a course that gives you a system. Systems are excellent, because once you learn it, you can't go wrong, and you can apply it to almost everything.
Here is the checklist of what you need:
Blogging has increased rapidly over the past few years. Everyone seems to have a blog these days. Blogging was actually meant for online journaling. But these days, blogs are used for making money too. You can very easily find a blog about almost everything.
An important aspect of blogs is commenting. You can comment on other peoples' blogs. The blog owner can also turn off the comments. But mostly, the blog owners don't turn them off. Comments are a great source of content for them.
You can use the commenting feature of blogs for the promotion of your own website. You can very easily get the back links by commenting on other blogs. These back links will help in two ways. Firstly other people visiting that blog will find your link and most probably visit your blog. Secondly, the back links will help you get a more prominent position in the search engines' result pages.
But you should keep some things in mind, while commenting on other blogs. This will make your commenting and promotion efforts more effective.
1. First of all, you should find the blogs relevant to your own blog. Those blogs should also be talking about, what you are talking about on your blog. For example, if your blog is about "making money online", you should try to find some blogs, which are also about online money making. One reason for finding relevant blogs is that the readers of that blog will already be interested in what you have written in your comment. The chances of them visiting your website will thus be increased.
Another reason for finding the relevant blogs and commenting on them is that it will increase your knowledge in that particular domain. And you will be considered an expert in that domain. With more credibility, the chances of more people coming to your website will increase.
2. You should try to add some value to the original content, while commenting on it. You should never write something like "Nice article. Visit my website". This will back fire on you.
Instead, you should try to find out something that is missing from the original article. Once you find such a thing, you should write about that in the comments. This will make you more credible in front of the readers, and they will naturally be interested in visiting your website.
3. Don't keep looking for only the do-follow blogs. You should instead try to find the blogs which have high authority and reputation. The blogs with more readers will be more helpful to you. You should try to find experts in your niche.
4. Another thing you should try to do while posting comments on other blogs is to reply to other comments. And whenever someone replies on your comments, you should try to start a conversation with them. The idea is to be more social on the popular relevant blogs.
We are sure you will love these tips. You should apply these while promoting your website through comments. These will really help your blog a lot. "Enjoy Your Coffee"
Good Morning All,
Jesus made it abundantly clear that you and I are to think globally:
"Go and make disciples of all nations… You shall be My witnesses… to the ends of the earth."(Matthew 28:19a; Acts 1:8b)
As a business or professional person, you are uniquely positioned to help fulfill The Great Commission in three ways:
It takes money to get the message of the Cross to the ends of the earth. If God has given you the gift of making money (Romans 12:8), then you have a unique opportunity and responsibility to distribute resources toward His causes.
The late Dr. Richard C. Halverson wrote:
"There is a greater problem than need — Greed! — Commendable as it may be, compassion for the hungry and starving is not the best we can do — as long as we give simply out of our abundance, and allow such giving to justify continuing acquisition beyond our needs… "
It has been estimated that by the year 2000, 85% of the world's lost lived in countries closed to traditional missionary entry. The only other means of personal "access" is through the business and professional person.
Today, most developing countries are crying out for the kind of expertise you possess. But this is big league stuff, so only those possessed of courage, vision, know how, and determination need apply.
Because the majority of the developing countries still recognize the West for its advanced expertise, you as a business or professional person have leverage to influence.
SO HERE IS THE QUESTION: ARE YOU A PAROCHIAL OR WORLD CHRISTIAN?"
One acid test in answering that question is to take a hard look at the ledger in your checkbook. Does the pattern of your check-writing over the past several months reflect a person possessed with a PAROCHIAL OR WORLD PERSPECTIVE?
"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:21)
