    In the current state of the economy, finding outside methods to building money can be a priority for you. You may have lost the amount you have been investing, but you know that the market right now is in a prime location for you. It may struggle for a few more months, but some of the most secure stocks are still highly affordable. How can you build up enough income to get back into investing again? Why not consider affiliate marketing?

    Affiliate marketing is not a scam and it most definitely is not a difficult process. You can learn it, especially if you know your way around the S & P 500. The goal of affiliate marketing is to help businesses to sell their products and services by giving them the tool of online advertising. Since the Internet is full of people who want to make a purchase, it is exceptionally important to keep in mind that these are all potential buyers for these companies. Your job is to simply market to them. You get them to come to your website or blog, you encourage them to make a purchase and they head off to the company's website (through your link) to make a purchase. In return, you get a cut of the sale, just like any other commission system works.

    If you are struggling with the current economy and want to get some extra income coming your way, one way to do so is through affiliate marketing. The money you make can help you to reinvest or do whatever you need to do.

    ... and that, my friend, is where the learning curve comes in![​IMG]

    Very well explained, though. I just had to throw that in.[​IMG]

    Yes. I agree.
    Affiliate marketing earn some money for you if you already know how to do the marketing. There are some people who doesn't know anything about marketing. How are the people going to earn money fast? They need to learn.

    Maybe so, but people have lost so, so, much in the stock market recently, not to mention in retirement programs. Just my two cents worth, but I personally will NOT be investing in the stock market for a loooong time.

    I plan to buy a little bullion gold, silver, and some non-perishable food.

    In the current economy, try to focus at least some of your efforts on "needs", rather than "wants". Its not that people aren't buying luxury items or things they "want", but not as many people can afford these kinds of things as before. However, there are certain things that are recession proof, at least to an extent. Someone may be a little hesitant to shell out $500 for a big screen tv that they don't really "need" if they are on a tight budget, but they may be willing to invest in a $40 ebook on how to lose weight or how to get their ex-girlfriend back. Thankfully, the economy is still going and people are buying things they don't "need", but when things get tighter with money, you are likely to do better on products that are "need" based, rather than "want" based.

    Although the price of most things are climbing at an alarming rate and the cost of some things are offensively high, I don't let that deter me in the least when it comes to online marketing.

    Don't be afraid of shadows and ghosts. Folks are spending plenty online and that won't change for a while.

    Tonight we ride!!!

    Thought I would bump this thread as there is good discussion here, and we are coming off of a solid three day rally on the DOW. There is no doubt that people are more conservative with any extra cash that they have, but we are certainly not back to a needs only society. FAR from it. There is still a huge untapped market online, especially if the price is right.
