Let’s face it: technology, especially the internet, can be pretty daunting to try to grasp, and with terms like malware, cursor and spam, it also seems pretty dangerous. So kudos to the guys who decided e-commerce and affiliate marketing should rely on an innocuous technology called a “cookie.”
As a growing business, you may also be looking for a CRM solution, and you’ll find that the more advanced email marketing services have begun to crossover into CRM.

I’d browse some free ‘themes’ (pre-designed ‘looks’ for websites) if I was tight on cash, or I might buy a high-quality one if I had the money.

Once your video is ready to upload, YouTube allows you to select the video thumbnail that will appear on your channel, in search results, and on the right-hand column. We recommend uploading your own custom thumbnail.
Thank you for this very informative and easy to understand information. I’m wondering if the same information applies to blogs as well as an e-commerce website?

Advances in smartphone cameras have made it possible to film great content with just a phone. If you are filming your video with a phone, be sure to turn it sideways and film in landscape mode. This will prevent awkward cropping or framing when you upload the video to YouTube, which natively supports the landscape format. No matter what you’re filming with, these tips can help your video to look professional and stay engaging for your viewers.

Many say that link building should be avoided altogether, especially after the Penguin update that demolished millions of websites last year. But links are arguably the most important ranking factor. As long as links are used by search engines for ranking web pages, they will remain effective.
Tell them what’s in it for them – Immediately after your brief intro, you need to explain 2 things: WHY they should watch AND how long the video is going to run (most people don’t like open-ended commitments).
Next up is building an email newsletter. The best services offer several ways to do this; you can import your own HTML, start from scratch, or use a pre-designed template. Most of these services have drag-and-drop UIs that let you choose exactly the elements you want to include, as well as image libraries in which you can store assets such as your logo or company photos. Tools that let you test your emails for spam are also essential since there are some seemingly innocuous terms that may send up red flags and drop all of your hard work into your subscribers’ junk folders or, worse, get your emails banned before they ever reach their recipients.
Also, don’t forget to include a link to your desired call to action as high up in the description. If you want people to share the video, use a service called ClicktoTweet.com. If you want people to opt into a mailing list, insert a link to the landing page you want them to go to. It’s as simple as that.

For many businesses, generating only a handful of additional serious prospects can make a substantial difference in revenue. Knowing how to use search engine marketing effectively may efficiently produce these additional prospects.
In-stream ads refer to ads that play within a YouTube video itself. TrueView in-stream ads play before a viewer watches the video they’ve selected on YouTube. These ads can be customized with different overlay text and CTAs and viewers usually have the option to skip the ad after watching the first five seconds. In addition to the pre-roll in-stream ads that play before the video, there are also mid-roll video ads that appear midway through YouTube videos that are 10 minutes or longer.

There are several profitable niches that are also very popular among affiliate markets (e.g., weight loss). Before jumping on board with a hugely popular niche, make sure there’s enough room for you. That is — will you be able to make money and compete with already established marketers? If not, keep looking.
Negative matches are matching types that prevent ads from being triggered by a certain search term (word or phrase). When a keyword is selected as negative, AMS will not show the ad to shoppers searching for that phrase.
Good overview of platforms but I’m sick of these reviews that simply praise each platform, don’t rate them, don’t say what they are lacking or how they compare. Obviously it’s not to critique the platforms as they provide you with affiliate income, but sometimes I think you would do better with a more critical approach. Anyhow, my thoughts.
“I just want to take a moment and speak to the value of this group. I’m not paid by Jim Cockrum to say this. I have just purchased the PAC although I have been a member of this group for about a year now (although I’m just now really engaging in the group and paying attention). The help and attitude of care and service in THIS group is HANDS DOWN BY FAR the best group (of any kind- not just Facebook) that I have ever been a part of. I have been watching some of the CES videos included with the PAC and just the character of leadership and integrity among the staff and community make me feel like I’m in a mastermind group worth thousands of dollars. My blessings and hats off to Jim for being a great example of a God loving man of character and a heart of service!”
