A wonderful little book about how to sell product or services online!, October 20, 2007
Jeff Lippincott "www.Jlippin.com" (Princeton, NJ USA) - See all my reviews
A good little book about how to promote YOUR BUSINESS using your Web site, Internet search engines, and other marketing techniques. I'm a SCORE volunteer who counsels small business owners on how to improve their Web presence and make the Internet work for them in bringing in clients. Much of the material covered in this wonderful little book is exactly what I explain to my clients. As a SCORE counselor I discuss market research, competition research, Web site research, keyword research, profit research, how to design a winning Web site, how to build a winning Web site, and how to market the winning Web site. This book covers all of these things. If you are looking for advice on how to do these things, then look no further. You have found it when you get a copy of this book. About three years ago I did a bit of research on affiliate programs on the Net and how to build my own affiliate program and upload it onto the Net. There really wasn't a lot out there to read about the subject at the time. Still isn't. But I was able to figure out back then that affiliate programs were not worth the effort to get involved in or to put together. I learned that if you can do a great job selling through an affiliate program, then you can do just as good selling your own product and make all the profit on the sale instead of a silly commission. This book helps explain how to do a great job selling. So get it for that angle and not the affiliate program angle. I'm giving this book 4 stars because in my opinion the title is a little misleading. I don't know anyone who is or has made a fortune in affiliate programs. But if the title were changed to something like make a fortune selling your own stuff online and the content was reworked a little, then the star rating would go up.
Great book for learning and implementing affiliate marketing, August 20, 2007

I don't know anyone making a fortune with affiliate marketing, but I do believe it is possible, which is why I bought this book. If you are an affiliate marketer, you might find much of this book repetitive. But, if you are not making a fortune and want to, then this book is for you. Most of us know it takes a llloooooonnnnnngggg time to make any money from most affiliate programs, and Gardner doesn't tell you you can get rich overnight. I found her information to be true to what everyone else is saying--build a good website (or websites) with great content, find good paying companies to promote and run your affiliate business like---a business. What a concept! (I find many people throw up a few pages of content and a couple of links and then start waiting for the money. As if. . .) I like this book because there are actual "how-to's" in here--how to set up tracking tools and spreadsheets, how and when to create content, how to promote your business, how to get your website up, when to expand your business, what to do when an affiliate doesn't pay, how to find affiliates, and much more. If you are looking for get rich quick scams, look somewhere else. If you are looking for a guide to having your own successful affiliate business, get this book.
