Affiliate Marketing

The amazing opportunities in Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is an excellent opportunity you truly believe in the value of the product you’re selling because many times, you can make money from something you would probably recommend anyway.

“Being an affiliate marketer is very cost-effective. You don’t have to put much money in an affiliate program in order to gain a lot.

“It’s the ultimate win-win situation. All affiliates get something from the arrangement, as does the company running the affiliate program, making it a mutually beneficial relationship.”

“Show the real you in your emails. You can’t control what people think of you—only what they see of you. Write about intimate stories, casual conversation, and flaws.”

“Great emails go unopened, great videos go unwatched, and great articles never get read because their headline sucks.”

“If you think of your target market like a pond of fish and you’re only using one hook, one selling system, and one way of targeting, then you’re only resonating with a small, small part of your market.”

“Landing pages need to look appealing, but most of all they need to convert.”

“In a nutshell: you need a landing page to achieve a particular goal, whether that’s building your brand, growing your email list or making a profit. At its core, it facilitates some type of opt-in process.”

“Once somebody is on your landing page, you want to start a conversation with them.”

“The promises you make in your ad are the ones you keep on your landing page.”

“When people are on your website, they may want to fill out a form, but a lot of people just want to talk to you now. They don’t want to fill out the form and wait.”

“The reason it seems that price is all your customers care about is that you haven’t given them anything else to care about.”

“You can’t just open a website and expect people to flood in. If you really want to succeed you have to create traffic.”

“You can’t wait for customers to come to you. You have to figure out where they are, go there and bring them back to your store.

“The world isn’t going to shower gold coins on you just because you have a good idea. You’re going to have to work like crazy to bring that idea to the attention of people. They’re not going to buy it unless they know about it.”

“If you look like you’re selling, people see it and run the other way. Everything has shifted. The stories that have emotional content are going to make people know, like, and trust you.”

Affiliate marketing has made businesses millions and ordinary people millionaires.

In advertising, not to be different is virtual suicide. The more informative your advertising, the more persuasive it will be. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.

Legends

Legends never say goodbye

Legends are individuals who are extremely famous and have impacted their field of endeavor. Their names never fade away even when they transit from the earth. Manchester City over the years has got some amazing legends. They have made the club so popular since its inception. Colin Bell, Francis Lee, Dennis Tueart, Mike Summerbee, Peter Doherty, Bert Trautmann, Asa Hartford, Uwe Rosler, Shaun Goater, Vincent Kompany, David Silva…The list of Legends goes on and on.

Backtrack to the year 2012. Precisely on the 13th of May, 2012, Manchester City was trailing QPR 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in a must-win game, to secure the EPL title after a 44 years wait. Time was ticking away, and with less than 10 minutes on the clock, the frustration of losing the title to arch-rivals Manchester United was too bitter to swallow.

Fans on the stand were already in agony. Manchester City needed a savior. The resurgence started with an equalizing goal by Edin Dzeko in the 91st minutes. There was palpable tension in the City technical area, as Roberto Mancini was pacing up and down the touchline. There were just 5 minutes left of extra time, and Manchester City needed someone who could do the impossible. Up stepped Nigel De Jong who made a decisive pass from midfield to Mario Balotelli on the edge of the QPR penalty area.

The Italian striker had never made any previous assist in his City career, but on this occasion, as he received the pass, he tried to maneuver his way but stumbled. When it seemed he was almost been dispossessed of the ball, Mario stretched all the muscles on his right leg and made the all-important pass to Kun Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine international skipped past QPR defender Taye Taiwo in the 96th minute and hammered an unstoppable shot into the lower right of goalkeeper Paddy Kenny. Football commentator Martin Tyler captured the moment in one of the most dramatic final games of the English Premier League.

Manchester City are still alive here..Balotelli…Agueroooooooooooo!! I swear you will never see anything like this again. So watch it, drink it in”.

There was a commotion at the Etihad as the ball went in. The sound of euphoric City fans echoed to the stadium of Light where United was waiting for some good news. It was shock and disbelief that was etched on the faces of sir Alex Ferguson and his United players. They had just defeated Sunderland 1-0 and the belief was that Manchester City may slip up at home.

Sergio Aguero became an instant Legend. His name was etched in gold. The young and the old poured into the Etihad pitch at the blast of the final whistle. There were tears everywhere. It was the tears of joy.

Fast forward to 9 years later,  and the much-revered striker who is now 32 and at the end of his current City contract seems to have lost a bit of the spark that saw him emerged as the best striker in the league.

Statistics don’t lie

The City legend has broken some incredible records since his debut against Swansea City on the 15th of July 2011.

** Highest number of hat-tricks in Premier League history (12)

** The Most goals scored in the last decade (174)

** Most goals/assists against other EPL top six sides (54 goals/ 12 assists)

** Winner of the most player of the Month(POTM) Awards (7)

** Highest foreign goal scorer (180)

Over the past few months, however, there has been speculation about his replacement, as Gabriel Jesus who is his striking partner is not seen as a long-term replacement for the City legend. Names like Erling Haaland of Borrusia Dortmund of Germany, Romelu Lukaku of Inter Milan of Italy, and lately Danny Ings of Southampton of England. The obvious target is Erling Haaland, the 1.94m tall Norwegian striker who has set the Bundesliga on fire with goals.

Injuries have hampered Sergio all through his City career, and as he gets older, the injuries have seemingly slowed him down. In the 2019/2020 season, Sergio missed 20 matches, the most he had missed since moving to the blue side of Manchester. His injury woes include Calf, hamstring, knee problem, Thigh problem, groin, and muscular problems.

Unfortunately, Legends don’t say goodbye. City faithful aren’t ready to let go of their Argentine talisman. The fairy tale that started in 2011 seems to be coming gradually grinding to a halt. The possibility of an extension to his current contract is high, but the City hierarchy is planning for the inevitable.

The top priority this coming transfer window will be to get a long-term replacement for a man who has shown his loyalty, love, and respect for Manchester City. In an exclusive interview he had with an Argentine Newspaper four years ago, Sergio poured out his innermost feelings about the club:

I am very happy at City, very happy since the day I came. I knew that the project was good, and in my head, there is nothing else but Manchester City, so how long I’m going to be at City is just never a question”

Our Journey in Life is too short

We are all on a journey on earth. The journey takes us through several phases in life. We fall and rise at each point of our beautiful journey in life. Sometimes we get to meet lovely people who make our transition along the path of life pleasurable.

Several years ago, a beautiful young lady sat on a bus. She was travelling to see her mum in a nearby city. At the next stop, a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.

The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset and asked her why she did not speak up and say something. The young lady responded with a smile: “It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I will be getting off at the next stop”. This response deserves to be written in golden letters: “It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short”

If each one of us realized that our time here on earth is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault-finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short. Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm and forgive such a one, the journey is so short. Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that our journey together is so short. No one knows the duration of this beautiful journey. No one knows when their stop will come. Our journey together is so short.

Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind, and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness. Smile,  laugh, dance, play, relax, joke and stop being serious about everything, let go of anger. Failure to do so only hurts you. The other person is moving on with life while you hold grudges.

In Life, we would always come across the good, bad and ugly. In all we do, let us learn to be kind, because everyone we meet is fighting a hard battle. Some may hide theirs with a smile. Others use beautiful makeups to brighten their inner hurt.

Our heart should always be ready to forgive another, for there dwells the secret of true happiness. Leave a lovely footprint in the sand of time. Become a beautiful memory in the heart of those you come across daily. After all, our journey together is so short!

purpose

Discover your purpose and start living your dream

The purpose is that feeling that you are a part of something bigger than yourself, that you are needed, and that you have something better ahead to work for. The purpose is what creates true happiness. J. K. Rowling got rejected 12 times before she finally wrote and published Harry Potter. Even Beyoncé had to make hundreds of songs to get Halo.

There is a popular saying about purpose: “When the purpose of something is not known, abuse becomes inevitable”. This quote is so true in every area of life. Some do struggle in life, even when they are talented or gifted in several ways.

How do I discover my purpose?

This is often the question of most individuals trying to find meaning out of life. The truth is that there are steps and guidelines to discovering your area of competence. For example, when people keep appreciating how good you are in certain specific areas, it may be a sign.

Most often, we don’t see our gifts or talents. People around us can help us point us in the direction of our purpose in life. In this case, you need to pay attention and never ignore what others are saying about you.

Another amazing way of knowing where your direction in life lies is to check inward. Take out time and do a soul-searching probe of your inner self. Your heart is the best tool to discover your true purpose and passion in life. Ask yourself some salient questions: what do I love doing for hours without getting bored? What gives me the greatest joy in life? What is my greatest passion?

The greatest successes in life usually come from having the freedom to fail. Ideas don’t come out fully formed, they only become clearer as you work on them. You just have to get started. It is never too late to start living your dream life. All it takes is to discover your true self and start working towards achieving that beautiful dream of yours.

service

Service is your secret to financial freedom

Service means you utilize every opportunity to give your talent, gift, and everything you have to the good of others. When you serve, you attract the best things in life. It’s not about money all the time. When you go through the biography of some successful men and women, one thing that stands out is the desire to serve. They didn’t put money at the front burner. When they served faithfully, other benefits began to flow in naturally.

When a business is set up primarily for profit-making, it becomes extremely difficult to achieve success. I love what Richard Branson the CEO of the Virgin Group said: “Never go into business purely to make money. If that’s the motive you’re better off doing nothing”

One of the primary reasons for going into any business is to fill a need. People have needs for different things. Whether its the need for food, the need for clothing or shelter, the need for education, or the need to have a hair cut.

These are specific needs, and they require specific services. If you see a need within your immediate environment that can be filled, all you can do is create a business out of it.

The intention may not necessarily be to make money but to provide value-added service for people. The money will flow in naturally as a product for services rendered. What we must understand about business is that without service, there can be no business. When you can serve people, they would be more than willing to pay you above what you would have charged.

The idea is to avoid greed for making quick money which oftentimes motivates certain individuals into specific businesses. Such businesses don’t last for long, as they soon fade away due to low patronage as a result of poor services been rendered to customers.

You may want to ask why virtually all companies have customer care service? The answer is simple. They value their customers and would be more than willing to satisfy them by providing a platform where they can channel all their complaints. This is a medium through which services can be improved and a relationship can be fostered.

Another vital reason why a business is created is for customers. Without customers, there can be no business. The secret of retaining customers is to provide them with service that would motivate them to keep coming back.

The market is becoming so competitive that businesses are looking for ways to improve their service delivery. Any single lapse by customer service may spell doom for any business that is aiming for the top.

Most businesses succeed via referrals from satisfied customers. The opposite is the case, as an embittered customer can tell a couple of friends about his or her experience in terms of service delivery. Those friends will end up telling their other friends and so the chain reaction continues.

Some amazing benefits of adopting value-added service to clients include: customer retention, increased productivity, increased profitability, and loyalty from customers. It may cost you a little to implement, but the benefits far outweigh the initial cost at the end of the day.
