It's a simple and straight forward question - and one that is asked often: how to make money from a blog?
In today's post, I give my usual style of unconventional and strategic answer to this question.
By the end of it, you may not be swimming in passive income, but you'll have a perspective that allows you to see through a lot of marketing talk around the topics of blogging and passive income.Continue reading
How long have you been in the Internet marketing game? Can you remember what it was like when you first started out? For me, it wasn’t too long ago that I was completely oblivious to this whole “make money online” world. I already had experience with offline businesses and I even had two ecommerce/online shop sites, but I was totally clueless about everything that relates to Internet marketing as we know it. I didn’t know the first thing about search engines, I didn’t know about blogging or WordPress, I didn’t know how to create a website or even a simple web-page, I didn’t know about hosting and domains and affiliate programs or anything like that.
As I was thinking abou this, I decided to make a video containing as much useful and essential information about making money online as possible, aimed at a complete beginner (basically me, a year ago). I wanted to keep it short and to the point (attention spans are short, these days), so there could only be a very limited amount of information in the video. I had to cut it down to what I believe are the most important things a newbie needs to hear.
Here’s the result and I’d love to know what you think about it:
Another “big launch” is upon us and so it’s time for another installment of Guru Popcorn! This time around, Mike Filsaime and Chris Farrell are going to woo us with four videos and then ask for $2.000 (probably). What’s the product? AffiliateDotCom is apparently what they’re going to name it. Which is weird. Since Filsaime is the self-proclaimed “software-as-a-service” guy, I’m actually wondering whether this really is going to be a $2.000 info product or whether it’s going to be some type of membership or service. Would be a nice change for sure.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch the first AffiliateDotCom video here and then watch my (brilliant) analysis of it below.

Just a quick post: I was over at the Traffic Café and saw something I just had to re-blog, because I like it so much. By the way, if you haven’t already, go over to the Traffic Café and subscribe to that blog. It’s one of the gems out there, run by Jonathan Gunson, who gave this awesome interview here on RQR, not too long ago.
Anyway, on to the actual topic. About once a month, something or other happens, that gets a lot of people all worried about the “end of online marketing”! Be it a new feature Google introduces (personalized search, anybody?), some rules changing (e.g. new Facebook advertisement rules), marketer’s accounts getting banned (AdWords, Blogger,…) or anything else along those lines. Whenever something like that happens, you can count on a lot of wailing about how the days of making easy money online are finally counted etc. etc.
Well, here’s an interesting counter-argument:
Today’s post is a very special one, because it is the first in a series of interviews with Internet marketing experts from many different fields of expertise like SEO, PPC, social media etc.
My first guest is Gary Gregory from Google Sniper Keywords. He is probably the most experienced Google Sniper out there, with over 100 sniper sites under his belt. In the interview, we talk about some of the most common difficulties people have when they start out with online marketing, find out what Gary’s manual and training is all about and learn why it pays off to be stubborn, in this business.
Below, you can find the download link as well as the straming player for listening to the interview. Enjoy![audio:http://activegrowth.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/GaryFinal.mp3|titles=Gary Gregory Interview]

Affiliate marketing is probably the number one thing that most internet marketers do to make money. As you might have already read in the RQR Glossary, affiliate marketing comes down to promoting and selling someone else’s products in exchange for commissions for every sale made. In this RQR Basics article, you’ll find a more in-depth explanation of what affiliate marketing is and how to get into it.
