Amazon Affiliate Commissions

Many people try to make money with Amazon affiliates but few make any money trying it. The reason is most people won’t buy an item that’s only placed in a Amazon affiliate box. I learned this the hard way as most internet wannabes do by trial an error.

As in most selling online you need to write a post or provide detailed information on your experiences using the products and the benefits that the product gives a potential customer. The most important part of making a sale on Amazon is to sell a product that meets a need to a reader.

Would you be more inclined to buy this product using a Amazon Box like this:

or would you buy a product that was thoroughly written about with a link at the bottom of the article like this:

The movie the “Social Network” is the true life story of how the founder of Facebook started the company. It features actors Jesse Eisenburg as Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook Founder) and Justin Timberland as Shawn Parker (Napster Founder).

This movie was amazing and showed how ultra smart Zuckerberg whom was virtually friendless started the largest social network. It shows just how much of a genuis and smart-ass he was to the students and administration of Harvard.

The movie then became extremely amusing when Napster founder Parker entered the picture with his keen sense of business savvy and wit. The shots of the lively business being formed with computer dorks mixing with Facebook “hottie” groupies was funny.

The ending was superb and the acting was amazingly good with Jesse Eisenburg nailing the part of Mark Zuckerberg. If your looking for an entertaining and brilliantly acted story line see this movie: The Social Network (Two-Disc Collector’s Edition)

Ok, I will admit I went a little over the edge with the movie review but you get the point. You need to build up the benefits of the product to get the sales.

Winning In The Cash Flow Business

I know not everyone wants the headaches involved with owning investment real estate so I ordered and read the late night infomercial books “Winning In The Cash Flow Business”.

In comes in three manuals:

1. Find Em – This book tells you how to find real estate notes to sell using various techniques. It also has lots of real estate terms and definitions which I believe are filler.
2. List Em – This book shows you where to sell the real estate notes you have found and how to profit from them.
3. Make Money – This book is filled with legal forms you will need to give buyers and sellers of the real estate notes. Also shows the various techniques to make money on owner financed notes.

After reading this program I believe in theory it can work but due to all of the time required to understand the process, legal forms,and matching buyers and sellers it’s not a realistic formula for the average person.

I consider myself more knowledgeable than the average person due to my many years as a real estate investor and I found the system relatively complicated although it could work.

I wouldn’t waste your money on this program but if you do decide to give it a try buy it used through Amazon for a few dollars.

Print Book Available In Amazon

After a relatively long process of converting my “How To Retire Before 40” ebook into a print version it’s finally listed and for sale on Amazon. You can see the book here.

It’s really nice to see all the hard work finally come to completion. I already have a few new ideas on creating some new print version books. Since my experience and knowledge is mainly on finance, business, and investing, the ideas would fall into those categories.

I also am considering making an audio book version like I did with my “How To Start A Candy Machine Business”. You can listen to a preview of that book on the sales page here. In any case I am focusing my efforts on some new passive income streams that I will update you on shortly.

If you have ever wanted to write a book I highly recommend doing it. It something I doubt you will regret doing and it could make you some nice passive income as a bonus. Who knows maybe you could even make a full time living as a writer.
