Good Morning Everyone. There are some things that are on my mind I'd like to share with you. So this morning I encourage everyone to just relax and allow the Ministry of The Holy Spirit to instruct you in the ways of God. Why is it that we, as Believers don't or won't follow the instructions that are provided for us?
I often times ask myself "Why didn't you just follow the instructions on the package"? Or "Why didn't you just go straight home like you were told"? By then it's usually too late to do anything about it. Can you identify with that? You see, (I'll use myself as an example), In my mind there are the things of God. Then there are the things of this world. And I must admit sometimes it gets a little confusing when I try and strike a balance between the two. That's why I'm so glad that God sent us the Holy Spirit. Outside of the Spirit, we cannot comprehend much less discern the things of God. Let talk this morning about the Fruit of the Spirit for just a moment.
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
It goes on to say also that those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh. And if we live in the Spirit, the we should also walk in the Spirit. God's grace abounds to all men. So it's yours. you need only receive it.
I think what God is trying to communicate to us is that the development of the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives is absolutely essential in manifesting Jesus and receiving our inheritance. You did know you have an inheritance didn't you?
Far too many of us in the Body of Christ are focused on our own spiritual Gift's and our own individual calling, as well as experiencing God's power for ourselves. Well the truth of the whole matter is that the only way you can truly achieve the maximum manifestation of Spiritual power is when you combine the Fruit and the Gift's of the Spirit together.
The Fruit of the Spirit is about being like Jesus in every way you can. In Romans 8:28-29
28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
You see here where God's highest purpose for us as Believers is to make us like Jesus. Nothing will draw Believers as well as unbelievers to God as much as seeing the life of Christ being lived out in love, joy, peace etc. There is always something amazing about a Believer when looked upon through the eyes of Jesus.
So take hold of your salvation, and let the love of God flow through you to others. Great is the reward for those that Love the Lord.
If you have been involved in the affiliate marketing business for some time, you should be aware of the importance of having your own list of subscribers. Having your own list of subscribers will enable you to do the following things:
Building good relationship with your customers
Recommending good products or resources to them
Providing them with good content and information
To start growing your own list of subscribers, you will want to make use of the squeeze page. The squeeze page can be defined as a simple one page website which only focus on collecting the visitors details like first name and email address.
The squeeze page should have attention grabbing headline and it should list down the benefits that your visitors will get if they give you their details to join your list. If you are driving targeted traffic to your squeeze page and you are providing relevant content, some visitors will join your list to get more information from you.
Once your list starts to grow bigger and you are constantly communicating with your subscribers, you will be able to get more response from your list whenever you send an email to them. This will enable you to make money on demand. Having your own responsive list ensures that you will be able to make consistent income from your affiliate marketing business.
You will want to start focusing on giving consistent values to your subscribers so that they will trust you and they will be more responsive to your email and offer. When you are just starting out, you might not be getting the results as fast as you wanted as it takes time to build relationship with your list. Focus on giving values and your subscribers will soon purchase the products that you are recommending.
Having your own squeeze page will enable you to get your whole business progressing in the right direction. You can get your whole business started with less than US$50. The cost are below:
- Domain name which will cost US$10 yearly
- Professional Hosting account which will cost US$10 monthly
- Professional autoresponder account which will cost US$20 monthly
Thus, you should be aware that the monthly maintenance of this business is only US$30 monthly when you are just starting your business. As your list gets bigger, the cost for your autoresponder account will become more expensive. But this should not be any problem if you are providing consistent values to your subscribers as they will purchase the products that you recommend which will cover the cost.
If you did not have a squeeze page, please start to create your own squeeze page as soon as possible so that you will be able to start building your own list of subscribers which provides you with long term consistent income. I encourage you to stay a while, check out the programs and opportunities. For more information and similar subjects click on my name.

Here is the first of many residual income affiliate program articles.
In this article you will learn...
1. What affiliate marketing actually is.
2. Where to go to find products to promote.
3. What to do when you find that affiliate market opportunity.
4. How to start affiliate marketing without websites.
5. How to avoid affiliate marketing frauds.
So let's find out what defines affiliate marketing.
According to Wikipedia: Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate's own marketing efforts. Basically this means that you get a pre-determined amount of money for selling other peoples products. This is general a percentage E.g 75%, but in other cases this is an already established figure. E.g you will get $1 for every click you send the business owner, via CPV (cost per view) or CPA (cost per action) we will get back to these later.
Where do you go to find products to promote?
The three main places are Market-to-go (MG), Click Bank (CB) and Pay Dot (PD), they are the best free affiliate programs, the reason these three are great to start with is that you don't need any previous experience to sign up with them. Other places such as "Yeah CPA" and "Wolf storm media" require you to have an established list, website and track record. They won't just let you join either, they will check you out, search you, look at your site, ask for proof in some cases and with "Yeah CPA" you have to submit a letter of at least 300 words to one of their managers (daunting yes but I had to do it, and totally worth it if you do CPA).
What to do when you find that affiliate market opportunity
With (MG) all you have to do is go to the website. There you will find twenty or more proven opportunities that you can opt in, and start promoting right away. You now need to choose a product to promote. This is made easy on (MG) and (CB) as they have a search box and very good advanced search features. Make sure you choose a product that you are passionate about, E.g if you liked dogs you wouldn't want to promote cats. When you find your product you need to make sure it sells by doing a quick search on it or looking at how the product is doing via the gravity (on CB). We will teach this in in more detail in another lesson.
How to start marketing without websites
Ok you have a product but you don't have a website or even know how to make a website, you are screwed right? Wrong there are a few ways you can promote for free without a website.
1. YouTube, make a video promoting your product and have a link to your product in your video, lots of people do this now days, but that isn't a bad thing, it's a good thing. If it didn't work no one would do it.
2. Promote it on your Facebook page, make an event with your product on it and make it seem like the only way to get it is through you for a limited time. Or make and actual page for your product and people can like it and buy it from your link.
3. Twitter, make a twitter page and talk about your product on there with a link to the product or Facebook page.
How to avoid frauds
1. Stay away from affiliate programs that have a bad track record, don't sign up to an affiliate program if it costs to join ever, and there are plenty of free ones out there anyway. In fact just stick to Market-to-go (MG) when you start this will save you time and money and you won't be a victim of affiliate marketing frauds.
