Start An Internet Home Business And Earn Extra Income Online

Are you searching for ways to supplement your income? Many are turning to the internet as it is such a convenient platform to use to start an internet business and earn extra income online from home.

Prior to starting your search on the internet for an extra income opportunity or deciding to start an internet home business, it may be a good idea to find out if that is the ideal way for you to earn extra income.

Everybody’s circumstances differ and they have different reasons for needing to earn extra income. So many people today just cannot make it through the month on their salary and therefore they need to be looking long term at finding a way to earn extra income on a regular basis to make ends meet and to have a more comfortable life.

Others may decide that they would rather take an overseas holiday next year instead of a local one or that they would rather pay off their mortgage bond in 10 years as opposed to say 15 or 20 years.

Some may decide they require extra income to pay off their debts and to start building a nest egg for later on in life. Others may need to provide for further education for their children.

Whilst it may be simple to start an internet business and sound ideal to be able to work at home bear in mind that it takes time and effort, patience and determination to earn extra income online. It is not as easy as it sounds and therefore is not suitable for everybody.

Starting an internet business is the easy part and then one is going to go through a huge learning curve to master and implement the internet marketing methods that work. It takes time to build momentum and generate enough targeted traffic to your website to start earning extra income. So starting an internet business is not a quick fix solution for someone in urgent need of money.

The great advantage of starting an internet business is that you can continue building your business forever. As long as you have your own domain name and website you will be in total control of your business and be able to make changes to the site and add to it as you wish. There is no limit to how much you can earn, it is all going to depend on how much quality time you put in on a consistent basis. The sky is the limit and you could easily end up turning your extra online income into a full time income and be able to fire your boss and work at home full time.

If on the other hand you need money urgently by the end of the month starting an internet business is not going to be the answer for you. You will barely have got the business launched yet alone had time to start building momentum and drive targeted traffic to your website. Rather that starting an internet business you would more likely make extra income quicker by partaking in the data entry business and online survey income programs.

It is always advisable to have a second income stream as a job is never guaranteed. There is also the very real and frightening fact about how much money we need if we intend retiring. With the cost of living rising all the time, the average person does not earn enough to be able to save for retirement or for an unexpected big expense.

If you start an internet business working from home in the evenings, before there is a crisis, it will give you time to build a solid base to a good source of extra online income.

What is the Best Day for Email Marketing?

Every internet marketer has either heard about or tried email marketing over their career. Remember years ago when people started buying all these lists of email addresses, and there was even software designed to send, or “blast” these emails to this list in the hopes of getting your message out to your intended audience? Spam was not a problem yet, and the floodgates were open.

These days, the internet marketing world has definitely changed, people hate spam more than ever (me too!), but the fact is that email marketing is still a viable marketing strategy in 2011. What does that mean in layman’s terms? People still are making profit by sending out emails to lists of email addresses.

For those of you who are new to internet marketing, the idea is simple. You obtain a targeted list of people you want to market your product, opportunity, or service to. You then write an attention grabbing subject line, your reader opens the email, reads the body, and then is compelled to take some sort of action based on some directions given in the body, typically using a link to a website.

I could probably write 10 articles all revolving around email marketing, but this one is going to strictly focus on one question – “What is the best day to send email advertisements?”

Some people will say that the best day to send is whatever works best for your schedule. Whatever fits into your Daily Method of Operation. I beg to differ. Studies have been done to show that more people make income, or sales, from emails that are sent out on Fridays. My opinion is that the reason for that is that ‘most’ people are paid on Friday’s, and are in the ‘weekend’ mood and are willing to part with their cash on Fridays more than any other day of the week.

As an internet marketer, your obvious goal is to make sales. Make money. But not everyone involved in email advertising has the goal of making money directly from an email. Their goal with the email is to get someone to a website, getting them into your sales funnel, so that eventually, at the right time, you can make a sale. So the question then becomes “What is the best day to send email advertisements – IF you want to concentrate on Clicks?”

Statistically, Monday and Thursday are the best day for clicks. You get into the office Monday, and your inbox is full of emails sent since Friday and you are fresh and ready to go for your week. You’re mind is concentrated on work, your job or career, and if the headline and message are right, more people will click on the link to your landing page on Mondays.

Regarding Thursdays – my theory here is that lots of people are TOO busy Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday with their job responsibilities to even look at an email from you, and Thursday is when they finally get around to it.

Bottom Line: Send out your emails on Monday’s and Thursdays if you want the best statistical chance for having the link to your landing page clicked in from your email marketing efforts.

 

Cost Per Action Affiliate Marketing Commissions Can Pay You Very Well

One of the best ways to earn affiliate marketing commissions is Cost per action programs, or CPA programs as they are also known. They can pay you very well in various ways.

The most popular form of CPA programs is where you get a lead for an advertiser. This could be something easy like getting a website visitor to provide their zip code or email address.

It could also be more complicated and involve several pages of information from the website visitor for you to earn your commission. Generally the harder the form is the more money you make.

There are CPA programs that pay as much as $500 per lead or more. There are others that will just pay you a few cents to get your visitor to provide basic information.

Today affiliate marketers can promote everything from home business opportunities to Wal-Mart gift cards via CPA programs.

As an affiliate you provide a valuable service to the advertiser. Getting information out to the public is difficult for any business to do.

This is the basics of how affiliate marketing works. With CPA programs you will be promoting offers via websites or landing pages. There is a certain skill to this and that is why there are people earning over seven figures per year once they know to do it correctly.

The most successful affiliate marketers are those who use their own websites to promote a specific offer. You are seeing more affiliate marketers developing a website around one specific product as opposed to a larger portal theme website.

The advantage to this is you can target a specific offer by name or product. You can also help influence your website visitor by pre-selling them before sending them through to the affiliate landing page.

What is the best way to promote CPA offers?

This is not really different than other types of affiliate marketing. Many affiliates will use article marketing and create a resource box that leads back to their own website or CPA landing page.

Some will do various forms of paid advertising. Google Adwords continues to be the most popular ppc search engine to advertise on.

Facebook Ads are quickly becoming a profitable form of Internet marketing. With over 500 million members it has a huge target audience that you want to get your offers in front of.

Obviously the more offers you are promoting the more affiliate marketing commissions it can mean to you. This is why you see so many affiliates today earning six and seven figure incomes.
