Copyright © Monique Hawkins


Everyone wants to earn a residual income with their home-based business. What is a residual income? In a nutshell, it is being paid many times over for something that is done right one time. It is being able to let a business run on auto-pilot and still receive income without you having to be present.This income is possible through affiliate programs, but the key is understanding how to market them effectively. Anyone can learn the secret to a residual income through marketing an affiliate home-based business program.

Marketing is getting an idea out to others, getting them interested in itand selling it to them. It is being able to have your business stand out from the crown.Marketing is the foundation for any good business. It is more than placing ads or pitching ideas. Good marketing is provoking. It catches the eye and makes a person want to know more. It makes them interested so they seek out information and are willing to look for it.

Affiliate programs usually are centered around a website. The idea is that
the website serves as the information base for the program. People come to
the website and learn about the products and program. If they are
interested they buy or sign up. That is what is so hard. Most of the time
people will scan an ad and see a hundred others just like it, so they ignore
it and move on. They need something to catch their eye. They want it to be
different. Once they get to the website the information better be clear and
explain it all or else they will simply walk away. Good marketing will not
only lead them to the website, but peak their interest enough that they
willingly read through the website and learn more on their own. This is
what residual income is all about.

A good marketing campaign starts with well written ads. The ads should make
a erson want more information. They should compel a person to spend time
learning about the program or products. A good ad will not explain, but
leave things open-ended. It should give enough information to make a person
curious, but still make them have to visit the website to learn more. Once
they get to the website it should have everything there they need to know.
It should also make them want either to sign up as an affiliate or to buy
the products. Their next step should be to buy or sign up. That leaves
very little left to do and makes it the ultimate residual income

A person who can market successfully will only have to place ads. Then the
rest is handled by their website. If they can make people want to learn
more then their job is done. It really can be that simple. That is the
ultimate in residual income. A little work developing advertising and then
ongoing income. If marketed successfully an affiliate program can help a
person build a stable and solid residual income.
