kiwifisher, You asked if there is a need for tutoring on internet marketing? - well for there to be a demand, people have got to understand exactly what it Internet Marketing is.

Sorry to say that a ranking in a Search Engine today means little or nothing. With the changes that have been going on over the last 2 - 3 years, and particularly with the techies at Google not realising that other countries exist beyong LA or NY (a common American trait in many businesses), you can...

I see you are running this off a UK domain so why don't you sign up with some of the travel related affiliates on the likes of Affiliate Windows, Tradedoubler and Buy.at. One point I might mention after looking at your site. If search engine traffic is at all important to you, you want to do somethi...

Completely agree about the range of products but then again I want to be reliably paid if I am responsible for them being sold.

My previous comments about ClickBank, relate mainly to the merchants rather than ClickBank itself. And my comments are only based on my own experiences 1998 - 2001. I find that very few substantial merchants use them. Instead they are often merchants looking for a cheap entry into Affiliate Marketin...

You should be looking to achieve a conversion rate of about 1% - 3000 uniques = 30 sales. If they are running an Affiliate Program that is worth anything, you should also have access to details of those sales transactions - either online or offline. That way you can see both the number of sales that...

Google has been generally getting out of control over the last 2 years. Much too full of themselves and their drive to "improve" has seen the quality of the rankings become very poor. Do a search and see many totally unrelated sites coming up on first page. The market is prime for a new player or fo...

Build a website with lots of valuable content. Give away part of it free. But if your visitors want access to the rest, you simply ask them to register with you. Then you can build your own email database. And it will have value.

That's just one way of doing it. It's all about using your imagination.

Jackie, may I urge some caution on this. In New Zealand things are still quite early days in respect of the Internet. Overseas, particularly in the UK and US, if you do not have specific permission to send somebody an email, you can be reported by the recipient to sites like SpamCop, which can resul...

Nicky, Google prices are going to these levels because this is what merchants and also some PPC specialist affiliates (generally the former) are prepared to bid for these keywords and key phrases. Do not expect them to go back down because more and more people are using Google for PPC based advertis...
