Your focus in making your submission should be to tell your success story and inspire other webmasters to succeed. You can share as much or as little detail as you’d like, but remember as we judge the submissions at the end of the month we will be looking for the most inspiring and the best details. You can make multiple submissions if you want to share multiple success stories, or you may experience success in several of the categories. This contest is not just for those who have made millions, we want to hear from you all. If you started out with nothing and are now profiting $20 a day, then share that success story with us!
I have entered my story and would appreciate your Backs/Votes. My post can be found under I Quit MY Day Job in 2006! And of course feel free to make your entry as there are some great prizes who can’t use some free Text Links, T shirts or most importantly $250 in Cash!
Right now is an awesome time to be a merchant, if you have a great product. Just think of it this way. Say you are a merchant and you have a good item. Let’s call this item billybobs. So you have a website where you sell billybobs and you are doing well selling them but want to sell more as you have a great profit margin. So you hear about affiliate marketing where you can have people promote your billybobs and give them a percentage for each sale or pay them per lead etc.. Since you are selling a product you would either go with flat rate or a percentage. For this instance lets say the Billybob’s sell for 30.00 and you have a great margin of 20.00. So it would be worth it to you to pay an affiliate 10.00 of that margin to make the sale. So you join CJ or push your offer thru various Affiliate networks.
Here is the best part for merchants, you get free branding and promotion. Because you only pay out when you make a sale. Trust me there are many affiliates that will promote your product spend anywhere from 10 to a few hundred and maybe not even make a sale but got more of the word out on your billybobs. Plus you increase your sales from those affiliates that promote your product to areas and people you would have never thought to reach. The only downside is you need to clarify if there is any areas you don’t want your product promoted. Other than that have fun enjoying the rewards of being a Merchant on the internet.
