How I cured my 15 year old acne?

The Best products for acne that actually work! Also, they helped me cure my 15 year old acne

I suffered from acne ever since I was a teenager. It wasn’t too bad at the beginning but with time it just got worse and worse. The more I hated it the more I had spots on my face. But then I stopped hating it but the spots still didn’t clear up!

During my college and university period, I had several massive acne breakouts on my face which effected my self-esteem and confidence.

I didn’t feel comfortable around people or wanted to meet new people as most of them wanted to know “how come you got spots on your face?”. I have fair skin, so big red and white spots looked even more visible.

I didn’t want to go shopping with my mum because I knew we’d meet familiar faces outside and they’ll all ask me the “spots question” which I always hated to answer.

I didn’t use the foundation as much I am aware through personal experiences that the more I covered the spots with make-up the more I’ll have blocked pores, which will result in more break-outs. However, so far nothing helped. I tried many internal and external medicine.

I spent thousands of pounds not only on over the counter/online medicines, but alternative herbal medicine to home remedies. I even had microdermabrasion a couple of blocks of sessions too! Whoever suggested something I was in the shops/places the very next day to try it out.

So you can see how desperate I was to get rid of my acne. I’ve always been health conscious and therefore ate healthy most of the times but nothing made any noticeable difference.

I tried many home remedies including the gram flour and lemon mask. This mask has always been my go to remedy as it gives me not only the temporary relief from acne, as well as gets rid of the aftermaths of the spots, the marks! I’ve used this for quite a few years now.

I feel this is one the reasons I don’t have any obvious marks or scars on my skin. I have a fairly clear skin despite that many years of troubled skin!

Over the years I have managed to control my acne with various herbal medication such as the Evening Primrose Oil, Manuka Honey, Multibionta, green tea, Nettle Tea, fresh ginger etc. I even tried the Clinique clear skin range but that didn’t clear my skin completely.

I was just beginning to cover my acne with the foundation. The best foundation I came across was the Estee Lauder double wear. This foundation did not make my skin look clogged or cakey but gave me a natural looking smooth finish.

However, I could still see bumps under my beautiful foundation which was annoying every time I looked myself in the mirror.

My search for the clear up acne continued. Until I came across the Neutrogena Visible clear range. The range contained of purifying toner, daily scrub, daily mosturiser, wash mask and daily wash

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Purifying Toner

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Daily Scrub

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Daily Moisturiser

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing 2-in-1 Wash Mask

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Daily Wash

I was amazed by these products even after using for only 3 days! I used them twice a day, in the morning and evening. Spots reduced in size and some of them were gone completely! The redness and scarring reduced. My skin looks even and glowing.

My face is so clear and oil free even on the T-Zone. My skin looks brighter and softer. I was a bit sceptical initially as I have a combination skin which is sensitive to breakouts. I use these products daily and I can confidently say that they have changed my skin for the better. Unlike, other treatments I’ve tried in the past, which resulted in dry flaky skin.

This range, if not completely but has significantly reduced the spots on my face as well as moisturize my skin at the same time. This is the most effective treatment I have ever tried and I can’t recommend it enough to people who have had similar issues as myself. Seriously this stuff works!

I now show off my skin with confidence.

All the best to you for your acne free future.

Quick and easy gluten free meals with Buckwheat

Are you suffering from gluten intolerance? Are you allergic to gluten? Or have you become gluten free because of the awesome health reasons, but struggling with the meal ideas? If YES, then please continue reading for a quick and easy gluten free meal ideas using the buckwheat.

Now the question is, what is buckwheat?

A lot of people think buckwheat is a grain. This is a very common mistake as it is not, because it is actually a Super-Seed and comes from the family of rhubarb and sorrel. Buckwheat is an excellent alternative to foods such as rice and wheat flour as well as oats.

Before I share my personal verdict with you 🙂 I would like to make a disclaimer that these meal ideas and recipes below are my own creation and I have tried and tested them for months and they have changed my life for the better.

Gluten-free and myself

I prefer being gluten free and I feel it suits my stomach better than the wheat. It instantly gives me energy and makes me feel lighter, unlike the wheat products, where I used to feel heavy and sleepy. So, I did some research for alternative options and came across this brilliant super-seed.

Being a research freak as usual 😉 I started searching for its benefits and came across many of them, but personally I’ve benefited the following:

  • Research claims that it improves heart health by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure levels BUT PERSONALLY I feel relaxed and focused as it also contains high level of magnesium.

 

  • Research claims that it contains disease fighting antioxidants BUT PERSONALLY it helped clear my skin tremendously and gave me a glow on my face.

 

  • Research claims that it helps you lose weight BUT PERSONALLY I feel I have lost weight especially around my stomach area, as buckwheat is an easy to digest seed, with its higher fiber content, which helps improve digestion.

 

  • Research claims that it helps prevent diabetes BUT PERSONALLY buckwheat helped me overcome my sugar level fluctuation, which used to result in extremely bad headaches, vomiting and dizziness especially if I was for even 5 minutes away from my meal.

 

  • Research claims that buckwheat has so much more vitamins and minerals than the wheat BUT PERSONALLY since I have been having buckwheat in my diet I feel more upbeat and don’t get tired. A very obvious example is that before buckwheat I used to get so tired and despite being active I could not walk up the stairs even up to 2 floors. But now I can walk up to 6 floors without stopping at every few steps and catching my breath!

How I enjoy buckwheat?

I tend to have buckwheat for my breakfast and my main meal. Below I have given you a simple and quick guide of what they are and how to make it.

Buckwheat Breakfast

I have buckwheat flakes for my breakfast. I simply add couple of handful of buckwheat flakes in a cereal bowl, add hot water and leave it for 10 minutes, then add a flavored yogurt, raisins, almonds, and a couple of chopped dates.

Buckwheat Meal

I make buckwheat chapattis using Buckwheat flour. In a bowl of buckwheat flour I gradually add cold water as I mix it with

a spoon (mixing with hands can be very messy!) I make sure the dough is hard otherwise its tricky to roll out, despite dusting with the dry flour it still sticks on the work top. I just make it as a normal chapatti. I tend to use some Khanum Ghee to make it extra tasty!

I enjoy the chapatis with various curries, including meat, chicken, lentils and vegetables. You can have them with whatever you fancy.

All the best to you for your gluten free future.

Is Affilorama a Scam or What? – Our personal experience

Affilorama Review – Let’s Dive into It!

There are many affiliate programs online that claim to make you “BIG BUCKS”, Affilorama is one of them!

We are a member of Affilorama and therefore we are in a position to give you an impartial review to help you make an informed decision, (don’t you think? :-))

Are you thinking of joining Affilorama, but not quite sure then keep reading as you may have all your questions answered.

Is Affilorama a Scam or what?

Before we continue, we would like to give you the good news that the Affilorama is not a scam! So relax and keep going.

What is Affilorama?

As you probably already know, Affilorama is an online educational marketing program, which gives you a lot of training and lessons in the form of videos and written text. It has hundreds of hours of video lessons to teach you all about affiliate marketing.

Founder of Affilorama

Affilorama was founded by a very successful affiliate marketer called Mark Ling in 2005. He is the owner of “Jamorama” and “Rocket Piano” too.

The-Affilorama-Review-who-is-Mark-Ling-

More about Affilorama

The main focus of this program is to give you a step-by-step guide to learn and build an online affiliate marketing business successfully. It is targeted to complete beginners to all the way to advanced affiliate marketers, so it is an all in one package.

Let’s discuss the pros and cons

Pros:

  • You can join for free and get access to the basic material
  • you will be taught all you need to know about affiliate marketing and then convert the learning into making big dollars
  • You will have access to an enthusiastic community where you can get a lot of help and support to drive your success forward

Cons

  • Various memberships available and each one has an upsell
  • The Founder Mark Ling will not be answering all your questions by himself but rather other members within the team
  • response to your question/queries does tend to take time
  • some contents within their training lessons are outdated which is frustrating. For example backlinks and private label rights, which can be implemented on your website. Let’s discuss these below:

Backlinks – This is no longer valid when Google Panda and Penguin was launched and consequently will have a negative impact with Google rankings. Since Google is the biggest search engine and you will be relying on them to drive traffic to your website. Affilorama teaches a lot about backlinking, approximately 25% out of the learning material. THIS IS A BIG WASTE OF YOUR TIME!

Private Label Rights (PLR) – This is to do with the duplicate contents. Google used to allow PLR contents strategy. However, when Google Panda was introduced, all duplicate contents are seen as poor quality and as a result your rankings will drop drastically. SO AGAIN, this is big waste of your time!

Membership Types = free membership and premium membership

These are the differences in price and what you will get:

Free membership

We must say you will get quite a lot of learning from Affilorama, ALL FOR FREE. They give you around 20 hours of video tutorials and other forms of education. So we are quite impressed by this as it’s not going to cost you anything!

Don’t think because it’s free it’s not going to be quality learning as the free material is valuable enough to help you set the foundation for your business. You will learn the basics of affiliate marketing, for example, how to build your website, create contents for Pay Per Click (PPC), and also Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

See the source image

Premium Membership

If you are serious about your business and want to take it to the next level, then we recommend going premium as its See the source imagecontents are good enough for the money. With $67 dollars per month, you will be learning far and beyond skills and tactics to earn more than a good living. But again, it all depends on how much effort you put in the learning and apply effectively to your business.

We have good news for you – you can trial their premium membership for the first month FOR ONLY $1. After that it will resume to their normal monthly fee of $67 per month. However, you can also cancel you premium membership anytime you want.

What’s included in the premium membership?

You get to scratch the surface with the free membership in comparison to the premium membership. Here, you will get hundreds of hours of complete in-depth training of all aspects of affiliate marketing. You will learn about product creation, affiliate blogging and so much more. You will also get a free hosting for 15 domains. So we think you will agree with us that it’s a pretty good deal.

Be warned, that Affilorama will be convincing you to join their premium membership during the period of your free membership. It is a business at the end of the day so you should expect this. The only question you should ask yourself, “is it worth it, me going premium?” We think it is – however, there is a better program and for cheaper. Click here to read our review.

Upsells to AffiloTheme, Affiloblueprint, AffiloJetpack

Affilorama membership Products

AffiloTheme

AffiloTheme allows you to build your website with extra features within WordPress such as Affiliate Link Cloaking, squeeze page, header creator, pop over generator and opt-in form templates. This will cost you $97.

Is it worth it? Is it required? Short answer is NO! It’s definitely not worth it and all this can be learnt from our NUMBER ONE recommended program.

AffiloBlueprint

This is where you will get Mark Ling’s very own methods and step-by-step blueprint of creating a website, contents and See the source imagegetting them to get ranked. The difference between this and the premium membership is the involvement of Mark Ling (the owner of Affilorama), and how he started his business from scratch and made it a great success.

There are hundreds of videos to cover from building your website to contents creations to get ranked on Google, Yahoo and Bing. You will also have home-work to complete at the end of each video lesson. The videos are great and can be understood and followed by someone new to the online business world.

Do you know how much this is going to cost you? It’s a big $197 payment as a one-off.

Is it worth it? Is it required? We don’t think so! Here is an alternative program where the owner shows and teaches exactly how he made millions, which is part of their premium membership, and without any additional costs or upsells.

AffiloJetpack

This product is for you if you don’t have enough time to invest in your business. It will do around 80% of your business work for you, but the other 20% will have to come from you. But we must say and advice against AffiloJetpack because you won’t be learning much to understand your business, creating your website and placing contents yourself and getting them ranked. REMEMBER KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

Guess how much this product is going to cost you? $497, yes you read it correctly, a whopping $497 plus you have to buy your own domain costing around $10 per year. You will also need to spend a further $20 per month to sign up for an auto-responder service.

Is it worth it? Is it required? Most definitely NOT! Our humble advice is for you to learn as much as you can right from the beginning. This way you will have knowledge and control over your business.

How much help will you really get from Mark Ling?

Being an owner of a very big business, the answer is pretty obvious. He does and will help you but not to the level you would need and want, as he is managing many projects. So the reality is, you will get very little communication from him. But the good news is Affilorama has an amazing community to look after you.

Is Affilorama a good learning platform for you?

If you have got a lot of money put aside then it is for you as the program is going to cost you quite a bit. We think it’s value for money, but there are better programs for a lot less membership fees and you will also get better learning.

The downside with Affilorama is that it takes a long while to set up your website and get the rankings as the learning tutorials they have in place takes a lot of time and effort to go through them. To make any money, you will probably be looking at a quite a few months.

If you can’t afford the premium membership then you have access to their free membership to learn the basics at least. Or you can join another program as a starter member which includes two free websites including hosting, ALL FOR FREE for life!

How much will Affilorama cost you?

  • Free membership – $0 per month (join here)
  • Premium membership – $67 per month (we recommend another platform)
  • AffiloTheme – $97 one-off (we don’t recommend this)
  • AffiloBlueprint – $197 one-off (we don’t recommend this)
  • AffiloJetpack – $497 one-off (we don’t recommend this)

Our final word to you

If you have some capital and you are looking into starting an online business, then Affilorama is a good place to start. But just keep an eye on your finances and be cautious about their upsells. You will learn some valuable information about affiliate marketing to make your business a success. So we do recommend it but at the same time we recommend a better program that will cost you peanuts! So go and check it out.

All the best to you for your bright and successful future.

Is The Six Figure Mentors (SFM) a Scam or What? – Our personal experience

Six Figure Mentors (SFM) Review – Lets Dive Into it!

There are many affiliate marketing programs online that claim to make you “BIG BUCKS!” Six Figure Mentors (SFM) is one of them!

We have been a member of SFM therefore, we can give a review that is honest and impartial that we (myself and my wife) experienced. If you are thinking of joining SFM but not quite sure then keep reading as you might come to a shocking discovery!

Is SFM a scam?

Before we say anything, we would like to make it clear that SFM is not a scam so relax…but the real questions are:

  1. How much cash have you got to spare?
  2. How patient are you?
  3. How many up sells can you handle?

You will need to put aside $2,500 to $20,000 to learn any concrete knowledge of internet marketing.

You will have to be extremely patient as you will face many barriers frequently which we will tell you from our experience and break it down for you.

Break Down of Costs

  1. Joining fee – will cost you $29.95 and you will have to complete an application
  2. SFM Essential membership – will cost you $297 upfront, plus $97 a month
  3. Elite Membership – will cost you $2,500 per year
  4. Silver (Digital Experts Academy – DEA) – will cost you $2,500 (plus Elite Membership Fee $2,500 per year)
  5. Gold (Digital Experts Academy – DEA) – will cost you $8,000 (plus Elite Membership Fee $2,500 per year)
  6. Platinum (Digital Experts Academy – DEA) – will cost you $11,000 (plus Elite Membership Fee $2,500 per year)
  7. Black (Digital Experts Academy – DEA) – will cost you $20,000 (plus Elite Membership Fee $2,500 per year)

Trial Membership – $29.95

In order for you to be accepted as a member, you have to provide a lot of personal details such as your monthly income, your savings, your personal goals etc. However this is refundable within 30 days.

The 30-day trial will not give you anything that you cannot find and learn for free online. So the trial is nothing special. It simply gives you access to SFM’s introductory course that involves all around what you will be doing using their different programs and how you can be successful online, but doesn’t really teach you or show you how.

If you want to be taught actual affiliate marketing and get 2 free websites all for free, then join our number one recommended program.

The application fee of $29.95, will give you access to SFM’s module 1 – introduction course, where you will be introduced to the process of money making, why it’s important to have a website, the different forms of advertisement, list building requirements and giving value to your visitors/customers.

SFM will explain to you all the different systems they have and how much commission you could make by promoting them. In essence, they would love you to promote their products more than anything and that is what we experienced as a member.

SFM Essential membership – $297 upfront, plus $97 a month

For this significant amount of fee, you will get access to 5 modules. Module 1 is the introduction which we have already discussed above. Module 2 is about your blueprint. This is where they tell you the importance of having a blueprint and how similar it is to constructing a brick and mortar building.

As we said earlier you will need a lot of patience because when we were working through the modules we kept coming across many barriers that stopped us progressing further and learning at our own pace and time.

For example at the end of part 1 of module 2 we had to book for a live orientation workshop webinar where new members get together and share their reasons of joining SFM etc. We had to wait for our system consultant to book us in and email a link to us which took about a week. We had no choice but to wait and were not allowed to move forward without attending this orientation workshop. This was very frustrating for us and we felt like we wasted a whole week.

So far nothing was learnt and we found the orientation workshop a complete waste of time, which was 4 hours long (non-stop) by the way. It was just 2 SFM trainers whom had picked 2 new members and all they did is asked them why they joined, what they want to get out of SFM and nobody else was really included or communicated with.

We just sat there till 12am (BST time) and were waiting in anticipation when are they going to teach us something of true value. But guess what, we got no value. So we continued till the very end, for the sake of getting a code which will allow us to unlock the next module (talk about barriers!)

As part of module 2, you also have to complete trajectory worksheets where you have to show them your past 10 years of income, assets and any debt you may have. My life worksheets, my bucket list, productivity planner etc. This was not optional and if you are like us, we just wanted to get on with learning the business side of affiliate marketing and get our website up and running.

BUT IT NEVER HAPPENED WITH SFM! However, it did happen with this program right from day 1 of joining it.

Module 3 – system setup

Another application needs filling in because we had to tell SFM how do we plan to promote their products, how much can we afford to pay for their products, and what is our monthly budget for promoting their products. We started feeling trapped and it seemed all about SFM and less of actually learning and promoting products of our choice such as Amazon, eBay etc.

We started losing patience and felt a lot of frustration because it was just video after video of Sturat Ross (co-founder of SFM) going on and on about his stories, his struggles, his personal life, but NEVER taught us anything about real business, the REAL reason we signed up for. We wanted to somehow squeeze some lessons on affiliate marketing out of Stuart’s videos (but it wasn’t possible LOL). The guy can talk for the world but personally we didn’t learn anything new.

Elite membership – $2,500 per year, plus $97 a month

To move onto module 4, can you guess what we needed? we think you’ve guessed it, and yes we had to overcome another barrier! This time we were told to schedule a Skype call with a SFM business strategist. This person will interview us and then decide if we are credential candidates for an upgrade to their elite membership.

To overcome this barrier we were going to get the code after the Skype call, so we could move onto module 4.

With a great deal of frustration, we went ahead and booked this Skype call with a lot of hope. But the earliest date we were able to book was 10 days away. There was nothing we could do to bring this forward, so sat tight and waited for the day to come.

During this waiting period, we had a lot of time to think and reflect on why we joined SFM. All the reasons we joined for, never got fulfilled. This is where we started to lose hope and realized we won’t be getting anywhere with SFM and instead forking out thousands of dollars.

We started doing more research on SFM to know what others thought and we came across many shockingly negative reviews, and most were complaints of the hefty fees, constant barriers during the training and the so many up sells they have, up to an upgrade costing you $20,000 for SFMs DEA Black Membership.

There was one particular review where one person mortgaged their house to pay $20,000 to SFM for their Black Digital Expert Academy (DEA) Membership. This person was not successful and they did not make any money and ended up going into further debts. They wanted to get a refund, but was denied as per the T&Cs;!

This is where we made our “U” turn and ran a mile away from SFM before anything crazy like this happened to us! We continued our search for a making money online program, and FINALLY we came across this BRILLIANT platform. Its cost was a tiny fraction compared to SFM with ALL the education and support needed to start and run a successful online business, without any barriers or blockages!

You go through the lessons at your own pace. Most importantly, they had a free starter membership (YES, ZERO cost), where you will be learning EVERYTHING to run a successful business. If you wanted to take your business to the highest point, then there is ONLY ONE optional up sell to their premium membership, which costs $49 per month or an annual cost of $359. Now compare that with $20,000 (Crazyyyy!)

Why SFM was not suitable for us?

Three main reasons:

  1. Shockingly expensive without the value for money
  2. Too many barriers – we could not at our own pace and felt very controlled by SFM
  3. Too many up sells costing an arm and leg, without a guarantee of earning any of it back

Is SFM for you?

YES, if you have tens of thousands of dollars, a lot of patience, love up sells and you intend to promote SFM products only, then go ahead and join SFM. Otherwise, stay clear of them and try this practical program which will enable to actually succeed in the online world.

Join here and we will see you on the other side where there is a wealth of knowledge, information and instant support from the like-minded community members, who will support you every step of the way to make your dreams come true.

We sincerely wish you all the best for future success.

Please feel free to write a comment, query or question you may have (that we didn’t cover) in the comments box below, and we’ll get back to you. Have a pleasant day 🙂

What are Affiliate Programs – a guide for Affiliate Marketers

Affiliate Marketing

Are you looking into making money online? Have you had so many ideas but just not getting anywhere. Well, today we are going to show you a few ways of understanding and making BIG BUCKS online. Assuming you already have a website in place, if you haven’t then that’s the first thing you will need.

CLICK HERE TO READ OUR POST ON “how we created our website in 30 seconds.”

Affiliate marketing is the most popular and successful “MONEY MAKING” technique, and we will explain this to you because you must familiarize yourself with this technique. It is the most common method used online to make money by ordinary people like ourselves and yourself. We call ourselves ‘Affiliate Marketers’.

Do you want to be a successful and productive affiliate marketer online? If so, it is vital that you firstly understand what your role is. You will need to understand the entire process, all the way to you making BIG MONEY.

Understanding how Affiliate Marketing Works

The process of affiliate marketing is not complicated. It’s a nice & clean process that anyone can understand very quickly as the model is very simple. You as an AFFILIATE, promote products and services on your website for companies, which we call MERCHANTS.

Affiliate Marketing is done through affiliate programs. The amazing thing is there are tens of thousands of these programs out there that you can use for FREE to make a good/decent revenue. You might be thinking “I may not be able to do this”, but the truth is if you can buy something online then you can definitely promote a product or service as an affiliate marketer through many of these affiliate marketing programs. An example is the Amazon Affiliate Marketing Program.

When you sign up for an affiliate program, you are provided with an unique link which you will use on your website contents to promote the goods/services.

The Importance of Your Website

Your website is the core of your affiliate marketing and this is where all promotions begin and end. When you have Amazon products advertised on your website and your visitors come and click on your link, you will be rewarded for this sale in the form of a commission that could be anything up to 80% of the value of the product or service.

Amazon tends to have a starter commission of 6% and this does increase depending on the product or service. For example, you have a smart OLED TV advertised on your website costing $3,000 (yes you can be an affiliate for TVs or anything else you want to promote!) If we took this sale as Amazon’s base commission of 6%, then how much do you think you will make? Well, let us tell you, 6% of $3,000 is $180, and imagine if you had made just ONE sale per day! This is common practice amongst affiliate marketers online, and you could be one of them!

All you have to do is have a website in place with all the relevant product promotions with your affiliate links, then simply refer your visitors to the Amazon site where they make the purchase and Amazon will take care of the rest. Your job is to just refer, nothing else and in return you earn some serious MONEY.

You can apply this affiliate marketing to ANY niche you desire and there are many affiliate programs you can choose from. Are you seeing your potential here as an affiliate marketer?

How Much Can You Earn as an Affiliate?

The sky is the limit really! It all depends on you. You can earn as much as you want, and that’s NO exaggeration!

How much you earn depends on how much traffic or visitors you can get on your website. The contents and reviews you create for the products you are promoting needs to be good quality and honest reviews. Your first intention should always be is to help the visitors on your website. If you can genuinely help them then they will naturally click on your affiliate link and go buy the product you recommended. So, in reality earning the money is the easy part.

Also, the contents that you create must be very relevant to your niche and most importantly you must be targeting specific “low competition” keywords for every single review or post you write. We cannot stress how important this is for you get visitors to you website. You can learn all this (as we did) via an affiliate educational program, which we have recommended further down this post.

We will explain this further for your understanding and give you some examples to break it down for you.

The Example

For example if you got 2,000 clicks and visitors in a month on your website. This will mean in a day you are getting 66 clicks. By the way, these are realistic numbers once your website is established and you got good quality contents.

So, from the 2,000 clicks lets assume 10% of the visitors actually click on your affiliate links and buy the products. That would mean 200 possible purchases in a month.

Let’s say you were promoting a product and the commission for each referral is $20 (that’s a typical amount). How much do you think you will earn in a month? Well, it’s 200 (possible purchases) multiplied by $20 will give you a fantastic monthly income of $4,000.

These figures are very common and all in one month of income from your affiliate marketing website. Once everything is established, your website will be making you a passive income month in month out, all year round, 24 hours a day (even while you are sleeping!)

You may have heard stories about people earning a $1,000 a day, and this is actually a reality and very possible. We haven’t personally gone to that level yet but we are getting there, however we know many affiliates have achieved this and are achieving this on a daily basis.

Quick Guide to Online Success – the four processes

Steps to Successful Online Business

We all want to be successful with our online business whether it’s a website, selling products, services, or as an affiliate marketer. But do you know what makes a business successful or what steps to take to see success. Most likely not, that’s the reason you’ve found this post.

In this short but straight to the point guide, we will show you how online success can be earned very quickly ONLY if you have these 4 processes in place.

 

Process number 1 – choose your niche or interest

This is where you are going to decide what you want your website to be about and what audience you are targeting to serve them by helping with whatever solution they are looking for their problem. We recommend you choose a topic of your own personal interest. Choosing something of interest or a hobby of yours will help you drive forward passionately and earn revenue while you fulfill your passion. Don’t forget your passion and interest will equate to you making money successfully.

Process number 2 – building your website

You will need a website and this will serve as the foundation of your business. You will need to think of a relevant domain name for your website (domain means your website address) based on your niche. For example our niche is to help people get richer and healthier, and therefore our domain is lifestyletipsandhacks.com.

Your website is going to represent you and everything within your site so you must remember to make every single content of good quality. This will get you good rankings from Google, Bing and Yahoo, whom are the 3 biggest search engines. They will give you authority and put your site forward when a user is searching for a relevant term and the search engines think the contact of your website will be a solution.

Good quality posts and pages on your website will attract more visitors. This means the more visitors you get the more money you will be making.

Towards the end, we will recommend an educational platform where you can sign up to create your website for free. So keep reading….

Process number 3 – attracting your visitors

It is important to get traffic and visitors to your website as this will convert into revenue for you. The good news is there is FREE traffic available out there and there is a lot of it, it’s just knowing how to get it. We will recommend and tell you where you can learn all about this FREE traffic towards the end of this post.

Also remember to write frequently and good quality posts which are rich in keywords and publish them on your website. The keywords will enable you to get your website and blog/posts indexed in Google, Bing and Yahoo. Make your contents attractive by adding images and videos.

Process number 4 – earning your revenue

Once you have successfully managed to get traffic and visitors on your website, it’s all good news from there onward because it means you will start to earn money. The MORE visitors the MORE money!

It is not going to be easy to get to this point. There will be a lot of hard work, commitment and time required from yourself if you are serious about making your online business a success. There are many ways you can monetize your website and earn a revenue from the huge amount of traffic or visitors you will get to your site. We will recommend where you can learn this further below.

What is The Meaning of a Niche? – Get your answer here

What is a Niche?

Gosh! This is where a lot of people stuck when they start off creating their website and online business, so please don’t worry you’re not ALONE. Keep reading because today we are going to help you out to fully to understand the meaning of “what is a Niche?”

Firstly, don’t be afraid of the word “Niche” because it is going to be your strength and the core of your business.

A NICHE IS AN UNIQUE SEGMENT OF A MARKET THAT YOU ARE GOING TO TARGET WITH YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS. In easier terms it is the audience or group of people that you intend to help out by giving value through your website and in return you will be rewarded with commissions through your recommended affiliate links.

How To Choose a Niche Easily?

It is very important that when you choose your niche it must be in an area that you have interest and passion for, otherwise you won’t get very far because the driving factor will fade out easily especially at the beginning of your journey.

However, you can also choose a niche for which you want to learn and develop through research because you don’t have to be an expert as you will BECOME an expert through research and learning.

We personally are passionate about many things. One particular area is “how to get richer and healthier”. This is what our website is all about. So our niche would be anyone looking for ways to get richer and healthier. It is a broad topic and therefore means our niche or targeted audience would be a very large one. However, you could narrow this down and select a smaller niche targeting a smaller audience.

We had the passion but didn’t have a lot of knowledge about getting richer online. But we became very successful in this area because we had the pleasure of educating ourselves through research by exploring the internet. One of the best research tools we came across was a digital company called Wealthy Affiliate.

Click here to Read our Full Review of Wealthy Affiliate

Through Wealthy Affiliate we learnt everything to do with the online business world. Such as:

  • understanding what a niche is
  • how to choose a niche
  • why choosing a niche is so important

Then went ahead and Wealthy Affiliate taught us how to create our website for free (this website you’re currently on!). We can go on and tell you so much more but we’re going to stop as you are here to understand what a niche is.

The good news is almost anything can be a niche. The only thing you have to do is think of it. Whatever pops in your head is basically your niche to put it simply. You should choose YOUR niche based on things you are passionate about to begin with. Once you are established you can choose any other niche and learn and educate yourself about it.

The beauty of the online world is you have a market of 3.75 billion people waiting for your help and you can easily earn more than a full time income by helping a tiny fraction of the 3.75 billion people. On a daily basis people are looking and searching for solutions to their problems, information on how to do things, and these people (3.75 billion) collectively are spending billions of dollars for products, services, information, tutorials etc. This is where you would come in and help them and earn a slice of the pie.

These are the people that are going to be YOUR niche audience (your customers)

How easy it is to choose your niche!

We just want to remind you that choosing a niche can be a little overwhelming and frustrating at first as you may have many ideas in your head that is your hobby or you are passionate about. Be clever and list them all down and then select one that comes on top of your list. Then go ahead and make a start (starting is always the hardest). Later on you can always include and start thinking about your other niches once you are established.

Online Business verses Traditional business

Once you are up and running, your online business shouldn’t give you the same feeling as your normal day job. We can definitely say earning money from your online business is very fun and exciting on a daily basis (unlike the traditional day job). This is because you will choose a niche that you will enjoy working with and is a passion of yours.

We don’t need to tell you this but it is a fact that the MORE you enjoy doing something the LESS it feels like a job. Consequently, you will be productive and successful and earn a lot of money while having fun.

We, myself and my wife are very passionate about helping people get richer and healthier as we believe these are the two main cores that goes hand in hand to get true happiness. That is the reason we chose lifestyle tips and hacks to help people like yourself to understand how to get richer and healthier.

Your Niche Can Be Anything

Remember your niche can be anything but we advise you to choose something that you are passionate about and have some knowledge of because you are the one that will be creating posts and pages in relation to this on your website. It must be something that you can talk about to others, just like you would do with your family and friends. So go ahead and choose a niche that excites you the most. Here is a few pointers to help you before you select your niche:

  • YOU will be writing content as posts and pages of your chosen niche – can you do that?
  • YOU will be communicating within your chosen niche – can you do that?
  • YOU will be selecting products to promote and help your chosen niche – can you do that?

If you answered YES to the above three questions, then you are ready to make a start on your online business and start serving your niche. So go ahead – and GOOD LUCK 🙂

Also remember, the niche that you choose initially will most definitely won’t be your last, so don’t worry about choosing a perfect niche – THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PERFECT NICHE! (there are only niches). So don’t waste time about getting it perfect as it will only lead to frustration. Any niche you choose for your business can and will become a full time income and more. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CHOOSING A WRONG NICHE.

Further support is available – you’re not alone

Choose Your Niche

The first block of your own personal SKYSCRAPER is to before you earn money, you need to think about your niche (audience) website. Once you have a website, you will be offering value to your chosen audience through your contents, which will enable you to drive traffic to your website.
