Affiliate Marketing You Need to Know

Seven Things about Affiliate Marketing You Need to Know

OK, so you’ve started your own blog, or set up an account someplace, and now you’re thinking how to make some money off of it? There are two ways people can earn money online – A) sell your own stuff or B) sell other people’s stuff and get paid for it.

Affiliate marketing belongs to the second type, obviously, as you may have concluded if for nothing else, then because of the “affiliate” part. Basically, this type of marketing implies three things – recommending a product or service to your audience, getting them to purchase said product or service, and getting paid commission for each successful purchase. Nothing to it, right? Wrong!

Yes, the principle behind affiliate marketing is sound and straightforward, but there are certain tips and tricks that we discussed at length with our friends at Spend Rush, which we think might help you turn a profit.

1. Don’t Make Half-arsed Attempts
Roughly speaking, there are three basic types of affiliate marketing – the Pay-per-click (PPC), something we’ll call Associated Affiliate Marketing and another thing we’ll call Engaged Affiliate Marketing. Out of the three, PPC is the simplest form, and it also brings in the least bread. In a nutshell, this is the equivalent of slapping a link somewhere, and saying “Buy this because I have to sell it”.

The second implies advertising products you haven’t used or reviewed yourself, but you still trust. It’s the equivalent of saying “I haven’t seen this movie, but a good friend of mine has, and he says it’s great!” The third type is the one that requires the most effort, but on the flipside, it will account for more than 90% of your revenue as an affiliate.

The thing with the last type of affiliate marketing is that it requires content, it requires effort on your part, and constructing the content around the products that you try to sell. If it’s a book, write a review; if it’s a game, make a Let’s-play; if it’s a printer, make sure you convince your readers you use it (or used to use it).

2. Choose Your Niche Wisely
One of the most common mistakes beginners in affiliate marketing do is bite more than they can chew. They spread too thin, over too many markets and products, ending overwhelmed, frustrated, and without revenue.
What you want to do is concentrate, at least in the beginning, on a single niche market. There are about four most profitable niches that will hardly go out of style – Romance, Health & Fitness, Wealth & Money and Hobbies. All of these are pretty much self-explanatory, so let’s just go through some of the sub-sections here.
The Romance niche encompasses dating, of course, as well as how to attract members of the opposite sex, finding a spouse, pick up, getting back with your ex, and whatever else you can think of.

The Health & Fitness market could deal with niches such as gaining/losing weight, exercising, indoor equipment for staying fit, diets, medical issues, you name it.

As far as Money & Wealth market goes, it may include thins such as gambling, business opportunities, making money online, and, yes, affiliate marketing.

Even though many of these markets have near unlimited numbers of niches, it’s the Hobbies market that’s the most comprehensive. Some of the more trending pastimes people seem to always enjoy are sports, gardening, fishing and hunting, camping… fill in the rest. This has absurdly high payoff, particularly if you target people who have more money than they can spend. The only thing you have to do is convince them to part with their money.

3. Know Thine Crowd
Now, presuming you’re actually creating content and connecting the links into it as organically as possible, there are some guidelines you need to follow to make it as profitable and fair as possible. Rule number one is – know your audience. If you’re creating content for gamers, don’t offer them window panes out of the blue.
Create a rapport with them, build an authority, a sense of confidence. The biggest percentage of your earnings will be you’re your regulars. Secondly, be helpful. It’s your audience, you should know what they need and what they want. Play into that, and offer them relevant products.

4. Be Honest
As noted earlier, you need to build a rapport with your audience. Have original, engaging content, and build a relationship with them where they trust you. Once you know they actually recommended you and your content by word of mouth, that’s when you know you’re in. More importantly, to keep this feeling of trust, make sure you’re being transparent. Always make full disclosure of your affiliate role, and it will pay off big time in more trust and support on the side of your audience.

5. Be Careful
Probably one of the most important facets of affiliate marketing is abiding by the law of the land. In the States, this means abiding by the FTC regulations, which protect both the consumer and you as the… purveyor of links. Also, don’t limit yourself to a single affiliate program. Some have a lifetime payout, while others are limited to 30-90 days. Additionally, don’t limit yourself to large and well-established affiliate networks, but go straight to the source and connect with your favorite sellers.

6. Stay Fresh, Stay Relevant
This is the thing that will not only keep your old readers/visitors coming back but also reel in some new ones. Let’s say someone finds an outdated content of yours, and can’t relate. They won’t listen to you. But, by trying to create timeless content, or constantly updating your old stuff with links to updates, you’ll stay fresh, and thereby relevant.

7. Be patient

As noted a point earlier, it’s important to stay relevant, so as to keep your audience growing. However, you will neither build up a core audience in a night nor will you see a definitive yield overnight. You have to be patient and keep working. The money will trickle, at first, but eventually, you’ll see the snowball effect taking momentum, and your credit rating grow.

The Master Key System - Law of attraction

The Master Key System - Part 8


To read this lesson online instead, go here:


In this Part you will find that you may freely choose what you think but the result of your thought is governed by an immutable law! Is not this a wonderful thought? Is it not wonderful to know that our lives are not subject to caprice or variability of any kind? That they are governed by law. This stability is our opportunity, because by complying with the law we can secure the desired effect with invariable precision. 

It is the Law which makes the Universe one grand paean of Harmony. If it were not for law, the Universe would be a Chaos instead of a Cosmos. 

Here, then, is the secret of the origin of both good and evil, this is all the good and evil there ever was or ever will be. 

Let me illustrate. Thought results in action, if your thought is constructive and harmonious, the result will be good; if your thought is destructive or inharmonious, the result will be evil. 

There is therefore but one law, one principle, one cause, one Source of Power, and good and evil are simply words which have been coined to indicate the result of our action, or our compliance or non-compliance with this law. 

The importance of this is well illustrated in the lives of Emerson and Carlyle. Emerson loved the good and his life was a symphony of peace and harmony, Carlyle hated the bad, and his life was a record of perpetual discord and inharmony. 

Here we have two grand men, each intent upon achieving the same ideal, but one makes use of constructive thought and is therefore in harmony with Natural Law, the other makes use of destructive thought and therefore brings upon himself discord of every kind and character. 

It is evident therefore that we are to hate nothing, not even the "bad," because hatred is destructive, and we shall soon find that by entertaining destructive thought we are sowing the "wind" and in turn shall reap the "whirlwind." 

PART EIGHT 

1. Thought contains a vital principle, because it is the creative principle of the Universe and by its nature will combine with other similar thoughts. 

2. As the one purpose of life is growth, all principles underlying existence must contribute to give it effect. Thought, therefore, takes form and the law of growth eventually brings it into manifestation. 

3. You may freely choose what you think, but the result of your thought is governed by an immutable law. Any line of thought persisted in cannot fail to produce its result in the character, health and circumstances of the individual. Methods whereby we can substitute habits of constructive thinking for those which we have found produce only undesirable effects are therefore of primary importance. 

4. We all know that this is by no means easy. Mental habits are difficult to control, but it can be done and the way to do it is to begin at once to substitute constructive thought for destructive thought. Form the habit of analyzing every thought. If it is necessary, if its manifestation in the objective will be a benefit, not only to yourself, but to all whom it may affect in any way, keep it; treasure it; it is of value; it is in tune with the Infinite; it will grow and develop and produce fruit an hundred fold. On the other hand, it will be well for you to keep this quotation from George Matthews Adams, in mind, "Learn to keep the door shut, keep out of your mind, out of your office, and out of your world, every element that seeks admittance with no definite helpful end in view." 

5. If your thought has been critical or destructive, and has resulted in any condition of discord or inharmony in your environment, it may be necessary for you to cultivate a mental attitude which will be conducive to constructive thought. 

6. The imagination will be found to be a great assistance in this direction; the cultivation of the imagination leads to the development of the ideal out of which your future will emerge. 

7. The imagination gathers up the material by which the Mind weaves the fabric in which your future is to be clothed. 

8. Imagination is the light by which we can penetrate new worlds of thought and experience. 

9. Imagination is the mighty instrument by which every discoverer, every inventor, opened the way from precedent to experience. Precedent said, "It cannot be done;" experience said, "It is done." 

10. Imagination is a plastic power, molding the things of sense into new forms and ideals. 

11. Imagination is the constructive form of thought which must precede every constructive form of action. 

12. A builder cannot build a structure of any kind until he has first received the plans from the architect, and the architect must get them from his imagination. 

13. The Captain of Industry cannot build a giant corporation which may coordinate hundreds of smaller corporations and thousands of employees, and utilize millions of dollars of capital until he has first created the entire work in his imagination. Objects in the material world are as clay in the potter's hand; it is in the Master Mind that the real things are created, and it is by the use of the imagination that the work is done. In order to cultivate the imagination it must be exercised. Exercise is necessary to cultivate mental muscle as well as physical muscle. It must be supplied with nourishment or it cannot grow. 

14. Do not confuse Imagination with Fancy, or that form of daydreaming in which some people like to indulge. Daydreaming is a form of mental dissipation which may lead to mental disaster. 

15. Constructive imagination means mental labor, by some considered to be the hardest kind of labor, but, if so, it yields the greatest returns, for all the great things in life have come to men and women who had the capacity to think, to imagine, and to make their dreams come true. 

16. When you have become thoroughly conscious of the fact that Mind is the only creative principle, that it is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, and that you can consciously come into harmony with this Omnipotence through your power of thought, you will have taken a long step in the right direction.


17. The next step is to place yourself in position to receive this power. As it is Omnipresent, it must be within you. We know that this is so because we know that all power is from within, but it must be developed, unfolded, cultivated; in order to do this we must be receptive, and this receptivity is acquired just as physical strength is gained, by exercise. 

18. The law of attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions, environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual, characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think once in a while when you are in church, or have just read a good book, BUT your predominant mental attitude is what counts. 

19. You cannot entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by ten minutes of strong, positive, creative thought. 

20. Real power comes from within. All power that anybody can possibly use is within man, only waiting to be brought into visibility by his first recognizing it, and then affirming it as his, working it into his consciousness until he becomes one with it. 

21. People say that they desire abundant life, and so they do, but so many interpret this to mean that if they will exercise their muscles or breathe scientifically, eat certain foods in certain ways, drink so many glasses of water every day of just a certain temperature, keep out of drafts, they will attain the abundant life they seek. The result of such methods is but indifferent. However, when man awakens to the truth, and affirms his oneness with all Life, he finds that he takes on the clear eye, the elastic step, the vigor of youth; he finds that he has discovered the source of all power. 

22. All mistakes are but the mistakes of ignorance. Knowledge-gaining and consequent power is what determines growth and evolution. The recognition and demonstration of knowledge is what constitutes power, and this power is spiritual power, and this spiritual power is the power which lies at the heart of all things; it is the soul of the universe. 

23. This knowledge is the result of man's ability to think; thought is therefore the germ of man's conscious evolution. When man ceases to advance in his thoughts and ideals, his forces immediately begin to disintegrate and his countenance gradually registers these changing conditions. 

24. Successful men make it their business to hold ideals of the conditions which they wish to realize. They constantly hold in mind the next step necessary to the ideal for which they are striving. Thoughts are the materials with which they build, and the imagination is their mental workshop. Mind is the ever-moving force with which they secure the persons and circumstance necessary to build their success structure, and imagination is the matrix in which all great things are fashioned. 

25. If you have been faithful to your ideal, you will hear the call when circumstances are ready to materialize your plans and results will correspond in the exact ratio of your fidelity to your ideal. The ideal steadily held is what pre-determines and attracts the necessary conditions for its fulfillment. 

26. It is thus that you may weave a garment of spirit and power into the web of your entire existence; it is thus that you may lead a charmed life and be forever protected from all harm; it is thus that you may become a positive force whereby conditions of opulence and harmony may be attracted to you. 

27. This is the leaven which is gradually permeating the general consciousness and is largely responsible for the conditions of unrest which are everywhere evident. 

28. In the last Part you created a mental image, you brought it from the invisible into the visible; this week I want you to take an object and follow it back to its origination, see of what it really consists. If you do this you will develop imagination, insight, perception, and sagacity. These come not by the superficial observation of the multitude, but by a keen analytical observation which sees below the surface. 

29. It is the few who know that the things which they see are only effects, and understand the causes by which these effects were brought into existence. 

30. Take the same position as heretofore and visualize a Battleship; see the grim monster floating on the surface of the water; there appears to be no life anywhere about; all is silence; you know that by far the largest part of the vessel is under water; out of sight; you know that the ship is as large and as heavy as a twenty-story skyscraper; you know that there are hundreds of men ready to spring to their appointed task instantly; you know that every department is in charge of able, trained, skilled officials who have proven themselves competent to take charge of this marvelous piece of mechanism; you know that although it lies apparently oblivious to everything else, it has eyes which see everything for miles around, and nothing is permitted to escape its watchful vision; you know that while it appears quiet, submissive and innocent, it is prepared to hurl a steel projectile weighing thousands of pounds at an enemy many miles away; this and much more you can bring to mind with comparatively no effort whatever. But how did the battleship come to be where it is; how did it come into existence in the first place? All of this you want to know if you are a careful observer. 

31. Follow the great steel plates through the foundries, see the thousands of men employed in their production; go still further back, and see the ore as it comes from the mine, see it loaded on barges or cars, see it melted and properly treated; go back still further and see the architect and engineers who planned the vessel; let the thought carry you back still further in order to determine why they planned the vessel; you will see that you are now so far back that the vessel is something intangible, it no longer exists, it is now only a thought existing in the brain of the architect; but from where did the order come to plan the vessel? Probably from the Secretary of Defense; but probably this vessel was planned long before the war was thought of, and that Congress had to pass a bill appropriating the money; possibly there was opposition, and speeches for or against the bill. Whom do these Congressmen represent? They represent you and me, so that our line of thought begins with the Battleship and ends with ourselves, and we find in the last analysis that our own thought is responsible for this and many other things, of which we seldom think, and a little further reflection will develop the most important fact of all and that is, if someone had not discovered the law by which this tremendous mass of steel and iron could be made to float upon the water, instead of immediately going to the bottom, the battleship could not have come into existence at all. 

32. This law is that, "the specific gravity of any substance is the weight of any volume of it, compared with an equal volume of water." The discovery of this law revolutionized every kind of ocean travel, commerce and warfare, and made the existence of the battleship, aircraft carriers, and cruise ships possible. 

33. You will find exercises of this kind invaluable. When the thought has been trained to look below the surface everything takes on a different appearance, the insignificant becomes significant, the uninteresting interesting; the things which we supposed to be of no importance are seen to be the only really vital things in existence. 


"Look To This Day For it is Life, the very Life of Life. In Its brief course lie all the Verities and Realities of your existence; The Bliss of Growth; The Glory of Action; The Splendor of Beauty; For Yesterday is but a Dream, And tomorrow is only a Vision: But Today well lived makes every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness, and Every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope. Look well, therefore, to This Day!"

5 Invaluable Sales Tips From a Former Door-to-Door Salesman

 Invaluable Sales Tips From a Former Door-to-Door Salesman

5 Invaluable Sales Tips From a Former Door-to-Door Salesman

When I tell people that I was a door-to-door salesman -- yes, in this century -- some are shocked. They didn’t even know that kind of work still exists.
Granted, it’s rare. But it’s the best sales education I could have received. Knocking on doors to sell books taught me invaluable lessons that apply to every form of sales. There’s no question these lessons helped me co-found a successful tech startup, Pipedrive. 
Here are five tips I learned the hard way.

1. Get to “no” faster.

You will be rejected. Often. There’s no way around that. No one has a 100% close ratio. When I was knocking on doors, one person called the police on me. Others told me to “get the [expletive] out.” A colleague once had a guy come to the door with a gun. 
But most people are too polite. They let you make your pitch even if they have no interest in buying. And that’s a problem of its own. Time is your most important resource. But at first, you tend to waste it by staying too long with people who aren’t going to buy. I made this mistake.
Then I learned to set a rule for myself: No more than 20 minutes at any house. 
A crucial way to make this happen is to help people feel comfortable saying no. I’d chat with the prospect first. Then, before offering a demonstration of the books I was selling, I’d say, “I think I understand what your problems are, and how this can help. I’ll show you what I have here, and you just let me know whether it’s something that might help you, or something that doesn’t.”
That way, customers are less likely to hold off on saying “no” out of politeness. But there’s also another benefit: They’re more willing to take a serious look at the product once you’ve made them feel comfortable saying no.

2. Get out of your head so you can read the signs.

To get a sense of whether someone is a serious prospective buyer, you need to learn the subtle cues they’re giving you. To do that, you have to first get out of your head. I couldn’t read the signs when I was anxious. At first, I was so focused on what to say next that I missed what was right in front of me. When I let go of that anxiety, everything changed.
The key is to know your craft and your pitch so well that you don’t have to think about it. It’s almost like pressing “play” on a tape player in your mind. While offering your spiel, you’re studying the prospect. You see their facial expressions. Are they looking at you? Do they seem comfortable? You read their body language. Are they looking for a chance to close the door politely? Are they nodding along to what you’re saying but not really focused on it?
All of this applies just as much to detecting people’s vocal nuances over the phone. After a while, you learn to hear the truth in people’s voices just as you can learn to see it in their eyes.

3. Don’t try to convince.

This seems counterintuitive, but it’s essential. If you go into sales thinking that you need to “make” people buy, you’ll fail. Unless you’re a cute little kid selling cookies in the street for a dollar, pressure isn’t going to work. People see what you’re doing, they don’t trust you, and they don’t believe what you’re telling them.
Instead, get to know people. Your mission is to understand them. What are they going through? What are their ambitions and needs? Focus on them, first and foremost. The product comes second.
Once you understand their story, you can connect the dots for them. You can show them how what you’re selling can genuinely help solve their challenges and make their lives easier.
Also, the more you get to know individual prospects, the clearer sense you’ll get of the types of customer who are more likely to buy your product – and the kind of pitch they each need. 
The books I was selling were for parents to help children with subjects in school. I learned to gauge an entire street in advance to get a sense of how many families with kids likely lived there. And I learned to tell from the height of a basketball hoop what age the children likely were, so I could tailor my pitch for parents of elementary school kids, middle schoolers or high schoolers.

4. Be gracefully direct about next steps.

If someone is seriously considering a buy, you need to get structured about making it happen. This requires finesse. A prospect might need to bring the offer to others at his or her organization, or discuss it with the CEO. So they might say, “Let us think about it internally and then get back to you.”
Don’t leave it there. Selling door-to-door, I learned that they key is to ask new questions out of sincere interest -- not out of pushiness. I might say, “Sure, absolutely. If you don’t mind me asking: What is it that you want to think about most?” Potential buyers respond well to curious people.
I also asked early in the conversation whether the person I was speaking with would generally make this kind of purchase decision alone or with a spouse. If it were the latter, I’d save time and come back later to demonstrate the product.
This same idea applies to phone calls. Feel free to ask a prospect early on who else may need to weigh in. At the end of a call, ask: “When do you see yourself talking about it internally and when could we connect again?” Be as specific as possible about the agreed next step.

5. Don’t string yourself along.

Sometimes, prospects are only claiming they need to think about it or discuss it with other people. They’ve already decided not to buy, and just don’t want to break your spirit -- at least not to your face.
So how do you stop the cycle of endless calls to see whether they’ve decided?
Change the question. Don’t ask people simply whether they have a decision. Instead, ask: “Can you see yourself making this purchase within the next month?”
A colleague of mine in door-to-door sales finally made this change, and the vast majority of those he called finally said “no.” It was a painful realization for him, but a crucial lesson. His time was better spent back out on the streets, knocking on new doors.
All of these tips will be easier to pull off as you build your confidence. Ultimately, confidence will be your strongest asset. One of the best examples I’ve seen was how my colleague met his wife. When he asked her on a date, he said, “I’d really like to go out with you. A couple of friends and I are going to have a party on Friday, I’d love for you to come, but I also understand if you can’t make it -- that’s fine too.” He created a comfortable environment for her to accept or decline.
Later on, she said that confidence made him stand out. It even made him a bit mysterious. She felt a pull to go see who he was. He was direct, honest, interested in her, and graceful. Never pushy. And ultimately, he “sold” himself to her.
So take these lessons to heart to use in your career. And don’t be surprised if they also pay off in the rest of your life.

Tips on Leadership Training

Simple Tips To Help You Understand Leadership


Unfortunately not everyone has what it takes to be an effective leader of people, but that is only because they haven't been educated on the correct way to lead. To help get you started your journey down the path to effective leadership, the article below has many great tips. Continue on and learn those valuable leadership lessons.

Be confident in a decision before you share it with others. If you look indecisive, that will cause those beneath you to be indecisive as well. Not only that, but indecision causes others to be able to try to take your position. Instead, deliberate in private before you make any announcements.

Video on Leadership Training


Watch out for project creep. This can happen when your project's scope isn't clearly defined. If you have control over the project, resist the temptation to add more project objectives as time goes on. If you are receiving external pressure to expand your project, resist it with all your might. Your subordinates will thank you.

If you make a mistake, admit it. Nothing will kill the confidence workers have for you faster than insistence that you're right when you are clearly not. However, if you can admit that you are wrong, you will gain the respect of your underlings. The respect of those around you is imperative.

Leadership Training

Besides recognizing your employees talents, you must also know your own strengths and weaknesses. Evaluate your own abilities often and work to improve on those areas that are weaker. Become a better manager by attending leadership training courses, continuing your formal education and adopting a mentor who is a successful business leader.

Now that you have read the above article, there is no stopping your pursuit of becoming a leader. The tips you learned about here should give you a nice starting point that you can build on as your leadership skills begin to grow. Keep developing your skills and refer back to this article if you feel you aren't progressing fast enough.

How to become a better leader?

Simple Steps To Help You Better Understand Leadership


Do you know what it takes to be a leader? There are many qualities that make up a leader as well as the individual qualities of each person. So you would like some more information on how to promote better leadership skills. Consider the following helpful advice for learning how to become a better leader.

Video on how to Become A better Leader


Allow ample opportunity for your employees to offer feedback and new ideas. Although group meetings are the ideal setting for exchange of information, some employees may not feel confident offering opinions in such a public forum. Work with employees individually as well. This will help you gain trust and get some honest feedback.

On most days, be the first in the office and the last out. This is not just about working the most hours. It's about giving your employees the perception of work ethic. If they see you working hard, they'll believe in you as a leader more. And with that comes real trust and a bump in productivity.

As a leader, you must not play favourites. Playing favourites will get you into trouble. Those who you do not favour will be none too pleased and not respect you. They may even report your favouritism. If you have a good friend on your team, you may want to think about transferring to another department to avoid the conflict of interest.


Become A better Leader

Once you become a leader, do not make the mistake of believing your job is done. While you may have won the first part of the battle, there is a lot more to come. You have to work hard every day to show people that you deserve to be where you are.

Now that you've read this article, you probably feel much more confident in your leadership abilities. At least, it's time to implement the tips presented in order to work hard at being the leader that you want to be. Leaders are who push for new innovations and new horizons, and you want to be in this group.

You have got to be positive about your product or service, positive about your ability to run your business, and positive that the sales will come. If you are, success is yours.

As long as you have the idea, you're about halfway there. Now all you need is to use the information you've learned up top and put it to practice with a solid work ethic and a never-say-die attitude.

If you can do those things and really stick with them, you can succeed at anything.

20 Business Ideas for Stay-at-Home Parents

Business Ideas for Stay-at-Home Parents

I found this great article enjoy : )


Looking for a new way to make money? Here are 20 businesses that you can start with very little money. You need motivation, a willingness to work hard and a desire to be financially successful.
1. College Application/Financial Aid Planning Consulting Business
A financial aid planner helps parents get the lowest possible price for their child's college education, thus saving them money. Tapping into financial aid resources is not just about being smart. It is about being aware of the resources that are available. This business involves advising parents and high school students on selecting a college, filling out the application and financial aid forms, providing tips for writing the college essay, advising parents about tax implications on college savings plans, and negotiating the best possible financial aid package when a college offer is received. A sound knowledge about higher education institutions and a thorough understanding of financial aid options are important. Market your services in high schools, libraries, private tutorial centers and universities.
Tip: Have a good understanding of different financial programs like Byrd Scholarships, Stafford Loans, private and federal grants, and PLUS Loans. Also be current with college savings plans including 529 plans, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts, the Uniform Gift to Minors Act, and Charitable Remainder Unitrusts.
2. Consignment Shop
Talking about wearing "pre-owned" clothing has never been a popular coffee table discussion. Times may be changing, though. Recycled clothes are back. The recession has led consumers to save their bucks by buying "gently used" items.
As a consignment shop owner, you don't pay anything for your inventory until it is sold, which makes this business ideal for the startup entrepreneur. Take clean, well-cared-for items and display and merchandise them for the owners, splitting the profits when you make a sale. Many times, the profit split is either 50/50 or 60/40, with the higher percentage going to the consignment shops.
Tip: The key to a successful consignment shop is a pleasant atmosphere. Make it clean, fresh and fashionable.
3. Freelance Writing
Freelance writers can write articles on any topic, from horse training to buying an RV. A good way to start is by writing about subjects in which you are already an expert. The Writer's Market lists guidelines for thousands of publications.
Ghost writing is a good pursuit for freelancers looking for money and willing to forgo a byline. Websites are always on the lookout for quality freelancers, too. Create a website to promote your freelance writing business.
Tip: Your initial queries are likely to get rejected many times. Cultivate a stoic resilience to rejection.
4. Gardening Business
Herb farms are one of the fastest-growing industries. Medicinal herbs, herbal teas, culinary herbs, and herbs for candles and aromatherapy are just the tip of the iceberg. A solid working knowledge of growing herbs is essential.
Flowers used to scent potpourri, soap, candles and fragrant concoctions require just a few square feet of growing space. Most of your product preparation can easily take place in an average-size kitchen equipped with no more than a shelf, stove and counter work space.
Becoming a gardening teacher is a creative way to make money from your green thumb. Offer gardening seminars in your backyard, community colleges, recreation centers and local nurseries. Offer a class each month on a different aspect of gardening, including planning flower beds, learning about perennials, preparing the soil, creating an English garden, bulb planting, and the like.
Growing orchids can be a lucrative business if you are willing to spend time and considerable effort. Although they are typically grown in tropical areas, orchids can also be grown as houseplants or in greenhouses.
Tip: Through gardening, you can branch off to floral arrangements and market your products to local inns, hotels, wedding planners, churches, roadside flower sales and florists.
5. Gift Basket-Making Business
From corporate parties to baby showers, holidays and birthdays, gift baskets can be tailored to suit the taste of anyone. Gift basket entrepreneurs need a flair for the creative and the design ability to buy gifts and tuck them into baskets, decorative tins, boxes or bags. Attractive packaging is an important part of the gift basket business. You can't just throw some objects together and stick on a bow.
Market your gift baskets by taking photos of them. Prepare a brochure listing the contents of each basket and its price. You can sell your baskets online, to corporate offices, through mail order and in local shops.
Tip: There is a large, untapped market for merchandise with university and sports team logos on them. You will first need to get approval from the university's licensing department to make gift baskets that have merchandise with their logo.

Ways to Build a Brand Rather than an Income and You’ll End up with Both!

Build a Brand Rather than an Income 


I found this great article enjoy : )




Imagine having a dream that one day you would be famous. Your goal is to be famous, so that is what you focus on. You brainstorm ideas on how to be famous. You buy books that provide ideas on how to become famous. 
You try everything you can think of that might make you famous, hoping that you’ll eventually come across the golden idea that will launch you into stardom! Then one day, after so many years and so much time and money spent trying to be famous, something happens that puts you in the headlines! You are seen by millions. People are talking about you. You are famous! You’d done it!!
That is, until the next day when the next big headline has come and you are forgotten about.
Now, let’s consider some of the most famous people of all time. How did they get their fame? Was their goal to be famous? Is that how they became famous? No, of course not (at least not in most cases). 
Thomas Edison was a passionate inventor. Though he was also a businessman, his focus was not on making money, it was on invention! in the process, he became very rich (and famous). Michael Jordan’s primary passion was for the game of basketball. In the process he became a Billionaire. Michael Jackson’s passion was for music. The list goes on and on.
My passion lies in software development and helping others succeed. I love coding and I love helping others succeed. Both of those things truly satisfy me. As a result, I’ve made millions of dollars. Though it is true there are some exceptions, most people who are successful, get there with one or two specific passions that they focus their time and money on.
Today I want to ask you a question. What is your focus? Is it just on making money? If so, you may be building a house of cards as they say. You may be just like the proverbial fame seeker I mentioned above who finally got what he wanted, only to see it vanish the next day.
If you do not feel like you’re going in the right direction with your online business, do this: Forget about making money and resolve today that you will focus on building a brand!
What are you passionate about? What really motivates you? What can you really provide value in? Go with that and work to build yourself up in that niche, whether you make money or not. Do this and you’ll be building your business on solid ground. That money may not come quickly, but it will come!
