How to Build Your Own Internet Business



Have you ever thought of working at home in a full-time or even part-time position?     Are you tired of the drudgery at work?  Does your boss appreciate you?

Maybe you really do love your job and don’t plan to quit.  Could you use some extra cash to make that vacation dream come true?  Or maybe you just need that extra cash to make ends meet.  So how do I build an online business?  Please read on.

Even if your company is pretty safe from job force reduction, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to pay off those credit card debts?  How about replacing that run-down sofa the kids have battered?  A few extra hundred $$$ a month would be great, wouldn’t it?  Whatever the reason, I think almost all of us could use an extra $$$.

So how do you go about getting that extra cash? A part-time job? That means more hours away from home plus commuting,  even if it is only a few miles.  Sometimes an extra job can be very costly in terms of family relationships plus the expense of commuting, maybe work clothes, and other expenses.

Earn Residual Income at Home


Are you just starting out or have already said goodbye to the “daily 9-5 grind”?  Whichever it is, you need to earn residual income from home during the retirement years.

Now for some of you folks, that is probably the farthest thing from your mind as you complicate careers, where to live, getting established in the community,  planning a family, and a million and one other things.

Retirement time does seem like  “a thing” in the distant future.  The wise couple will soon realize in most cases,  a company may not have a retirement plan (residual income) of any kind.

Your company may have a 401K or something similar that you can invest in because so many straight pension plans have gone by the wayside in these current economic times.  The average person may change jobs several times during their working career. Usually, the 401K stays with the company (your share is yours, of course) so what are you left with?  It is not a happy thought.

What about stocks?  Even true expert investors fall on their faces,  sometimes.  I don’t know about you, I sometimes think the stock market could be about as reliable as going to a casino and giving them your money.

So what is the answer to retirement income that will more likely to be there when you retire?   Read on!

What is a Niche for Affiliate Marketing


The dictionary defines a niche: as “A place or position suitable or appropriate for a person or thing”.   What is a niche for affiliate marketing?  We will discuss this, about niches.

So what is your niche? Do you love golf? How about child care? Maybe music is your great love? Are you fascinated with the financial area?

There are many hundreds if not thousands of niches which are a distinct segment of a market, in other words, an “audience”.

When choosing a niche that fits you, you should be choosing something that is ideally an interest, a passion, or a hobby, but it could be something that you would like to learn about. You don’t need to BE an expert, you can BECOME an expert. though research and study.

Almost anything you can think of is a niche and that is why we are going to get you to choose YOUR niche based on things that you are interested in.

Senior Income Opportunity



Many years ago, my Dad was in a joyful mood.  He was retiring from a small food brokerage firm with a nice pension.  He had worked hard all his life and was now reaping the benefit of those years of labor.  He retired at 65 and lived another 30 years.   He and my mother had a great retirement together (except for her vision problems), but financially they were as secure as anyone could be.

As we look at today’s retirement situation how things have changed.  Over the past 30-35 years, the stability of retirement funds has disappeared.  Sure the 401K has been added, like other “saving or retirement programs”.  But the mainstream “pensions” are drying up like a river bed in the hot Arizona sun.

The promises of many companies cannot be fulfilled because of economic cutbacks.  One day you have a great retirement fund to look forward to and whamo…it’s gone.

There were many retirement stock market programs that some of you took out.  Many again, are gone!  Even with the present economic upswing, many retirement plans no longer exist.

OK,  maybe your plan is intact.   You are maybe one of the fortunate ones with an adequate pension but so many have lost theirs as companies reduce benefits to cut their expenses.

Even with a good retirement plan, are you financially happy?  Can you do the things you wanted to do before you retired?  Since you are reading this article, one has to assume that you could use some senior income opportunities.

What is An Internet Affiliate Marketing Program?


What is an Affiliate Program? An affiliate program is where you promote someone’s product through your own website. Your goal in affiliate programs is to earn commissions for mentioning or recommending services or products on your website.

You must have an established website already. Then you contact the company with the product and apply to be an affiliate with them. Sometimes if your website is new or not ranked very high by Google, they might refuse your website. Normally this happens because of a lack of content. So it pays to build your website with quality content first of all before contacting an affiliate.
