Niche Marketing on Crack by Andrew Hansen

I really like Niche Marketing on Crack by Andrew Hansen. It teaches a simple technique for targeting keywords and products with your affiliate sites. These sites are fast to set up, and you can start making money with very little traffic because the technique involves doing some very tricky but smart things.

I've posted information about how I create Niche Marketing on Crack sites and describe how these techniques work at my Badger Blog today:

Niche Marketing on Crack is Da Bomb

If you've been intimidated by the world of affiliate marketing, you'll probably enjoy his ebook because it teaches user-friendly techniques that will allow you to get started making money quickly.

Feedify Your Site Launches

I'm so jazzed, I've just launched a new site to publish my Feedify Your Site report and share it with the world.

The new site is:

It's devoted to empowering website owners with all sorts of cool information about feeds - ranging from how to create a simple, non-techie, feed if you have a regular html website - to learning how to "pimp" or exploit an existing feed for maximum profit and big bucks. If you already have a feed for your blog or site, or if you've been operating a small html site and wondering if a feed would be useful, you need to get this report!

You can read more about this new report at my other blog:

Internet Marketing - Why is it Such a Boy's Club?

There's way more men in the world of Internet marketing than women, and I think this is a shame because women are so well suited to this industry. We're born communicators (a polite way of saying that we won't shut up!) so we can easily turn our writing and interpersonal skills into building fabulous blogs and entertaining websites.

But most women I know are clueless about the earnings potential with websites and with Internet marketing in general.

Read more of my thoughts on how the world of Internet marketing is still a boy's club here:

Pinging a Regular Html Website

When it comes to "pinging," many people get confused about whether they can ping a site like Pingomatic or Pingoat if they have a regular html (non blog) website.

With WordPress blogs and Blogger blogs - which come with a built in feed - it's easy to ping these sites. Pingomatic and Pingoat notify a variety of blogging services that you've made an update to your site. Each time you ping, the search engine spiders come zipping around to index any updates you've made.

Pinging is a great way to get your blog noticed by the search engines and bring in traffic, fast.

But if you have a regular html website without a blog, did you know that you can add a simple one page feed in just a few minutes and harness all the amazing benefits of blog and ping?

I teach you how in a special new package I've created called:

Feedify Your Site: How to Create a Simple, Homemade Feed for Your Static Html Website and Get Fast Indexing and Pinging Power.

Check it out at my site:

Easy Ways to Recession Proof Your Online Business

It's not hard to shift gears with your business so you can build profits during a recession. It just requires thinking about your business in a bit of a new way.

For instance, this is a great time to move into what I call "evergreen markets." These are those broad niches like weight loss, dating, trading, and so forth - niches that never go out of style. They will all continue to perform well, recession or no recession.

You need to be in some of these broad niches, I feel, in order to continue to have great profits from your online businesses.

I've outlined some simple steps you can take to recesssion proof your online business here:

Don't Run Your Affiliate Program Like This

Sometimes smaller companies don't understand how to run a private affiliate program. They can drop the ball by not responding to emails, making it difficult for affiliates to be paid, or acting like their affiliates are competition instead of supporters of their business.

I dealt with one nightmare vendor recently and you won't believe the things that this company did. I was a huge supporter and fan of their products and had written wonderful reviews about them and even devoted a whole site to reviews for their product.

Learn my sad story in this entry about how not to run an affiliate program:
