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.
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.
"Enjoy Your Coffee"
Every affiliate marketer is constantly seeking to build an affiliate program that pays so they can make money on the Internet. Ideally you would like a magic quick fix that would generate your affiliate program with no effort, wouldn't all of us! The truth is that there isn't really a miracle answer, but the real answer is not that complicated and is easy to get to know and implement.
In principle it is the appreciation and utilization of excellent marketing practices that have been proven to perform over the years. These are time-tested tactics that work just as well when correctly applied to the online affiliate marketing world of today. You will see claims of 'breakthrough techniques' from time to time, and some of these are genuine. They arise from a coming together of specific marketing conditions and online services; but they do not last as the conditions and services change constantly.
So here are three fundamental marketing tips to help you construct a strong foundation for your online affiliate marketing business that pays.
1. Use separate web pages for each separate product you are promoting.
It is very tempting, especially for newcomers, to want to promote every product via every channel so that you are presenting your visitors with options - but it's a wrong move. It may be tempting to offer choice, but keep to a single track so as to get your visitor to make a simple decision, to buy or not to buy. You will get a better conversion rate this way.
Use the web page's space to give your visitor all the reasons why they should click that 'Buy Now' button. Emphasize the benefits they will receive from their purchase, especially any distinguishing ones. It is the benefits that people buy, not the features.
Include genuine product reviews, buy and try the product yourself, and get real testimonials from end users. Make sure they are genuine and that you can back up the sources if you are challenged.
Finally, make sure your visitors know what to do - make your affiliate link very clear and bright.
2. Offer free reports to your visitors.
It's a fact of marketing that most visitors to your site will not buy first time. They need to trust that you and your recommendations will be right for them than other's will be. So you should be wanting to contact them several times to build the right degree of trust. Hence you need their email address - and to get that you offer something of value; your free report.Once you have that address you can send carefully written emails giving them good reasons for buying, and buying through your link, using an auto-responder system,. Market studies show that many sales are not concluded until the seventh contact, so build a sequence of at least 10 contact messages.
3. Drive targeted buying visitors to your website.
For example, if your website was about a puppy training product then there is no point in you wasting any of your time or money driving someone who is only interested in cats there. This is especially true when you are using a 'paid traffic' method such as Pay Per Click'. Study other ads, try variations - always be seeking to improve your buying and list sign up results
\* Promote products on their own pages or websites
\* Build a list of prospects using a free report and then use it to build trust
\* Work hard to attract the ideal customer
Work smart, repeat a successful campaign with another product, search out the affiliate programs that pay for you so you can be successful at making money on the Internet.
To Your Success!
