Step #8 Start an Internet Business w/etc. LET’S JUST DO IT!

   Okay, talking time is over. If you’re still with me, then you’re serious about starting an internet business.


   Because it’s time to start making money. To keep you from getting a bad case of paralysis by analysis I’ve used the KISS method (Keep It Simple Stupid) throughout these lessons so that when you do choose your niche and select your product, we’ll start slow until you get the hang of it and start making some money.

   Although there are a number of sites where you can chose a product to promote, the best to start out with is Warrior forum. It cost ten bucks for a lifetime membership and for the education you can get there, it’s the best ten bucks you’ll ever spend.

   So if you haven’t joined yet here’s the LINK:

   Then go to the top right of the page and click on register. Then look over terms of service, agree to it & create a user name. Pick something associated with your niche. 
   Since I’m a writer I would go with something like Bookguy or novelman. Fill out the rest of the info and wait for the confirmation email.

   Once your user name is established you can use it to become an affiliate marketer at

   Once there, sign in and click on Affiliates on the upper tool bar. You’ll see a screen that looks like this:

Then click on View Available offers and a screen like this one will appear.

 Here’s is probably where you should take notes. Just under the words WSO Affiliate offers is a red toolbar with the words:

WSO Date   Sales  Visitor  Conv. Visitor Value    Average Price  Bumps   Comm Rate and Refund rate. request

   Here’s what those words stand for: WSO Date=the date the product went on sale. Sale=the number sold so far. +100 means over 100 could be 102 or 2million. Visitor Conversion=the percentage of people who clicked on the product and bought it. Average Price=what the product is selling for.  Bumps=the people who after a quick look left. Commission Rate=the percentage of the price of the product you will receive as its seller (i.e. if it sells for $10 dollars at a 50% rate you would get $5 dollars) Refund rate= the percent of purchasers who didn’t like the product and asked for a refund.

   And finally ‘request’. Remember these products are these people’s livelihood so they don’t want troublemakers or spammers representing them. If you decide you like a product enough to become an affiliate then after you click ‘request’and the box appears, convince them that you believe in the product and want to sell it.

   Keep in mind you may get a few refusals at first. It’s not personal. Once you start making sales the refusals will drop.

   So lets say you picked a product in your niche, perhaps even bought it and liked it and the seller gave you the go ahead. What you will receive is an affiliate link that you put on your sales ad or article. Now, how do you go about selling it?

   Our first stop is  Here is the link with instructions on how to use it.

   Today I decided to become an affiliate for a product called The Kindle Bestseller Roadmap. I bought the product myself and liked it enough to promote it. So the first thing I did was write an ad on Here’s the LINK: 

   So go look around, get a feel of the place and make sure that if you like a product scroll down and read the reviews. Sometime you can find something others are missing and make a killing (remember the grill man)

See you tomorrow
