Rebellion in Teenage Girls

Rebellion in girls:

Girls are milder in their form of rebellion. Their greatest worry is physical beauty. Usually, they will dress up and your corrective attempts gets you labeled as outdated! Sometimes you have to fight over the right type of male friends to keep and invite home. A lot of times you fight over your style of doing things, including your method of cooking some types of food!

You can also be really disappointed when your teenager’s rebellion leads to her getting pregnant! Oh boy! Can you beat the hurt a parent can feel. Where did I go wrong? you will ask yourself.

Respect is a key word in dealing with this period of a teenagers life.

It is absolutely difficult for a parent using ‘hindsight’ not to envisage where a particular action may lead. The problem is how do you communicate your fears to your teenager?

If you’re dealing with a rebellious teen, it is possible to demonstrate love, reason and cooperation – and to rebuild mutual trust and respect by ensuring that your communication line is kept open. You must also learn to wait patiently for the consequences of their action. Learn not to interfere. It is also important to pray along with your teenager at this crucial period of their lives! There is a lot to gain and so much more to lose.

Boys derive power from physical attractiveness, too, but also from athletic accomplishment in certain prescribed sports, from owning beautiful cars and from learning to be cool under pressure. Typically, power games are more physical for adolescent males than females. The bullies literally force their will on those who are weaker.

3 Awesome Extreme Sports

When you think of sports what do you think of? Maybe you think of football, soccer, basketball or baseball. Well, in the world of sports there is much more than just the classic sports you always hear about.

I have made a list of 3 extreme sports that will be sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Extreme sports, un-like other sports, are always exciting and are usually somewhat dangerous. The danger is the reason they are so exciting and why they are so extreme.

Let’s take a look at these sports and who knows, maybe you’ll find one your interested in and take on a whole new lifestyle.

1. The first sport on our list is motocross. I am sure you know what this is but incase you don’t, it’s when a lot of people race dirt bikes around a man-made track with jumps, whoops, berms and many more features. This is extremely fast paced and exciting to watch.

What is even more exciting is actually participating in the sport. It is a little expensive to start but it is an investment that keeps on giving. Just be sure that you get the proper protective gear because it is a dangerous sport. If you have a chance be sure to go watch a professional race as the professionals ride faster than you could believe.

2. Now let’s check out freestyle motocross. This is where riding dirt bikes truly gets insane. This is where people will do tricks on their dirt bikes.

Freestyle motocross is probably most known because of the freestyle competitions held at the X-Games every year. Riders will take their bikes off of 70 foot jumps doing backflips, grabs, different body movements and pretty much every trick you can possibly imagine. It truly is spectacular.

Keep in mind that performing tricks on a dirt bike is extremely difficult and you should always try tricks into a foam pit before taking them to the dirt.

3. The last sport on our list is cliff jumping. This is something everyone can do but is still exhilarating and very extreme.

Cliff jumping is where you find a cliff or ledge that towers above a body of water and jump from it into the water. This is something that everyone should try at least once.

If you ask around I am sure someone you know will tell you of a place that you can do this safely.

A few things to keep in mind are to not jump off of anything too tall (15-35 feet is ideal), always check to make sure the water is deep enough so you don’t hit the ground and make sure you jump out far enough to land in the deep water.

Enjoy the Fun of Online Dating by Telling the Truth

The internet has changed the way we go about our day to day tasks. The sheer explosion of online chat channels and the increasing number of social networks is permitting more and more people to opt in for online dating. It is a fact that not all of us have the guts to brazenly walk up to someone from the opposite sex… in the midst of a crowd… and tell them about your feelings. This problem lies not just with females… even males suffer from it. Till the recent explosion of the net these poor folks had no other option but to spend their free time in the company of their friends and fret as they watched them meet & mingle with their friends from the opposite sex.

But the internet has provided people who are too timid and too shy with an option to date online with others who share the same interests like them. If you are new to online dating and would like to learn more about it, it is recommended that you sign up with some social networks. While signing up with such networks, it is suggested that you provide truthful information about yourself. However, you should never reveal your phone number or address. You might as well put up your best photograph on such sites.

A photo speaks lots more than words and there are many instances where a person has found his or her true love just because they took the time to add a good photograph of themselves. You should never provide false information about yourself. You can be rest assured that one day or the other the truth will be revealed and if you have not provided correct information about yourself, you will be sorry later on. There are countless instances of persons who cut down their true ages in the hope that they will find someone who is much younger then them.

Such persons should ask themselves whether they are just interested in online chatting or are actually interested to meet their friends in the future. If they are interested in just online chatting, then they might get away by providing false information. However, if they are interested in meeting the other person, then they should never provide false information. The balloon of false information will burst the day they meet their friend and that will, most probably, be the last time their friend will meet them.

As a male interested in females younger than yourself, you should not forget that there are countless females who are also on the lookout for males who are quite senior in age to them. People often have great expectations from the online chat forums and social network sites. They should try to provide all information about themselves as far as practicable. This will help them to find that special someone they are on the lookout for. You should also mention specifically what you are looking for from the other person and be frank about it. It helps in the long run.

Dog Training – Everything You Need to Know!

Many people believe that dog training is hard. Many also believe that some dogs are simply not trainable. Both of these views are wrong. The truth of the matter is this: all dogs are trainable, and training a dog doesn’t have to be hard work. Indeed, training a dog can be fun. It is of course true that some dog breeds are easier to train than others. What we disagree with, however, is the assertion that there are dogs which can’t be trained – because that is so untrue. What we venture to explore then, are some of the things you need to do, in order to get the training of your dog right.

Parameters for gauging success

You’ll be deemed to have gotten the training of your dog right if you manage to pass on the essential dog skills to your pooch within a reasonable amount of time.

You’ll further be deemed to have gotten the training of your dog right if you manage to the essential dog skills in an enduring way. This is to say, in other words, that you won’t be regarded as having been very successful in training your dog if the pooch forgets the skills taught within a day.

Thus, in a nutshell, the parameters through which success in dog training can be gauged include:

– The duration of time expended in passing on the essential skills to the dog.

– The skills inculcated in the dog.

– How long the skills are retained by the dog.

Of course, if you are taking too long to pass on certain skills to the dog, if you are finding it impossible to inculcate certain skills in the dog, or if the dog keeps on forgetting skills taught to him or her, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you aren’t doing things well. You have to keep it in mind that there are two variables at play here. The first of those is your skill, aptitude and dedication as a dog trainer. And the second of those is your dog’s natural ability – against a background where some dog breeds seem to ‘get’ things faster than others.

Early initiation as a key to success in the training dogs

Simply put, there are some skills that you can only teach to a dog when he or she is young. This means that the commonly held belief that puppies below six months of age shouldn’t be trained is altogether wrong. In fact, there are some skills you’ll find hard to teach to a dog that is older than six months. It is worth noting that unlike us humans, dogs are (in some ways) highly evolved animals – whose life skills learning process starts the moment they are born. That is why a puppy that loses his mother at three months of age may be able to survive in the wild, whereas it would be very hard for a human baby who lost his mother at the same age to survive on his or her own in a similar environment.

Now the best time to start training a dog would be when he or she is learning basic life skills, so that the skills you want to pass on to him or her are also adopted alongside those basic canine life skills. That way, the required behaviors would be part of the dog’s personality. They would be more deeply ingrained in him or her. This is not to say an older dog can’t be trained. It is just that you’d have a harder time (and less fun) training the older pooch.

It later emerges that some of the people who end up getting the impression that their dogs are not trainable tend to be folks who make an attempt at teaching their dogs certain skills too late in the dogs’ lives. When the dogs fail to pick such skills, they are labeled boneheads – whereas it is not really their fault that they are unable to pick the skills, but rather, the trainer’s fault for not having initiated training earlier.

The right use of rewards and corrections as a key to success in training dogs.

When we get to the nitty-gritty of dog training, it emerges that various skills and behaviors can only be transmitted and ingrained in dogs through the right use of rewards and corrections.

The biggest reward you can give to a dog is attention. And conversely, the biggest correction/punishment you can give to a dog is deprivation of attention.

Thus, if you want to get you dog to pick a certain behavior, you need to simulate (or rather illustrate) it to him or her, and then reward him or her (with attention) when he behaves accordingly, whist also punishing him or her (with deprivation of attention) when or she fails to behave accordingly. Just looking at the dog lovingly is a way of ‘rewarding’ him or her with attention. Petting him or her is another form of attention reward. Praising the pooch verbally is yet another way of rewarding him or her with attention. True, the dog may not understand the words, but he or she can sense the emotions behind them. Dog seem to have that ability.

Meanwhile, if your dog was enjoying your attention whilst doing something right and you deprive him or her of that attention the moment he or she starts doing something wrong, he instantly senses the reaction and makes the connection between his misbehavior and the deprivation of attention. He is inclined to correct the behavior, in order to regain your attention. These things work particularly well if the dog you are trying to train is still young.

What you mustn’t do, however, is to hit the dog as a form of punishment/correction: the simple reason being that the dog won’t understand that being hit is a form of ‘punishment.’ Rather, the hit pooch will assume that you are just being violent to him or her. If the dog keeps on doing things like running to the road or messing up neighbors stuff, you’d be better advised to find ways of restraining his movements, rather than hitting him.

Patience as a key to success in the training of dogs

You won’t be successful in dog training unless you are patient. You have to keep it in mind that it takes dogs some time to pick ideas that seem too simple to us as humans. There are people who have this misconception that you can only be successful in dog training if you are ‘tough.’ On the contrary, this is one of those endeavors where kindness and the ‘soft approach’ seem to work better than the tough Spartan approach to training.

Persistence as a key to success in the training of dogs

Closely related to patience (as a key to success in dog training) is persistence. You won’t be successful as a dog trainer if you give up too easily – that is, like where you illustrate a desired behavior to a dog, and then give up if the dog fails to pick it up immediately. The truth of the matter is that you have to illustrate a desire behavior to a dog several times, whilst using the necessary reinforcements, till the dog eventually comes to learn what is expected of him or her.

Consistency as a key to success in the training of dogs

This is a scheme where, for instance, having settled on a particular reinforcement (reward or punishment), you need to apply it consistently, so that the dog under training can understand what it actually means. One of the worst things you can do in the course of training a dog is to send mixed signals, because once a dog gets confused, it becomes very hard to train him or her.

Further keys to successful dog training

On top of these, you may need to undertake further research (online or in the library) before getting started.

And should your DIY efforts at training your dog fail, you should consider enlisting the help of a professional trainer before giving up on the dog altogether.

Top 10 Dating Statistics Everyone Should Know

While I am a firm believer in fate, destiny, and karma, not everybody is willing to trust in “the stars” to determine their future. You may have wondered to yourself, “What is my chance of finding a mate?” Well, there are various statistics to support the answer to that question, and I have listed several of them below. You may be surprised at some of them, especially the number of people that use online dating.

1. 40 million Americans use online dating services. That’s about 40% of the adult American single population. It’s not just a fad anymore, and it just might be your ticket to finding happiness.

2. 44% of the adult American population is single. That’s over 100 million people, so your odds are actually much better than you think.

3. On average, there are 86 single men to every 100 single women in America. So, the odds are slightly in favor of men finding a mate. This ratio is a bit better in the Southwest, and in warmer climates such as Texas, Florida, and California, the ratio in some cities actually favors the women.

4. 50% of New York state adults are unmarried, making it the best state for single people. Washington, D.C. actually boasts a 70% single rate, making it the best area (although not a state) for single people.

The states with the worst ratios are Idaho and Utah, with 40% and 41% single, respectively.

5. 51% percent of single people surveyed say that flattery is the best way to attract someone. According to Are You Normal About Sex, Love, and Relationships? 25% also say to use touching as a way to flirt is very effective, and a surprising 23% say that the best way to let someone know you’re interested in them is the old schoolyard method of passing word through a friend.

6. Profiles with photos get over twice as many responses. According to economists at MIT and University of Chicago, profiles with photos get over twice as many emails as profiles without them. Sounds like a good enough reason to me to go ahead and put that photo out there on your profile.

7. You have 15 minutes to make a first impression – if you’re a woman, that is. If you’re a man, you have a little more cushion. Women usually take about an hour to decide if you’re going to have a second date.

8. #1 relationship argument is over money – according to a poll by the University of Denver. So, don’t feel too bad if you can’t agree about who’s paying for the date. It’s rather common, and not exactly a foretelling of things to come.

9. 48% of breakups in online relationships occur through email. It may seem rude or insensitive, but this is the world we live in, especially in the setting of an online relationship.

10. Only 2% of men find relationships from a barstool. This number only goes up to 9% for women. So, get down off that barstool, and try your luck somewhere else, such as online, or through a network of friends, where 63% of married couples claim to have found their mates, according to the book Sex in America: A Definitive Survey by Robert T. Michael.

Ten Factors That Can Make Your Penis Smaller – Learn How To Prevent It From Happening to You!

There are many factors that can cause a man to have a small penis. Some factors can’t be helped, while some factors can be prevented. Here’s a list of some factors that can decrease penis size:

1) Circumcision – Circumcision is a big cause of a smaller penis. The reason for this is that when the foreskin is removed from the penis, it usually leads to scarring. Skin and penile tissue that has been scarred will be less elastic and will typically “shrink” up (and get smaller) when a scar is formed. Some estimates are that men who are circumcised lose an average of 5% of their penile length. Strangely enough, the companies and industries that profit from circumcision state that there is no scarring nor loss of penis length when a man’s penis is circumcised.

2) Scarring Due to Injury or Burns – Getting your manhood caught in your zipper, excessive masturbation, and other injuries can also make the penis smaller. Because of the sensitive nature of the penile tissues and skin, they can be easily injured. I had a friend who stepped on his dog’s tail in the dead of night. The dog jumped up, clenched down on his penis, and bit into it. After a trip to the hospital (no stitches), and once he healed up, what was the result? His penis was shorter in length and the area that was injured resulted in a scarred depression in this area of his penis.

We mentioned masturbation already, and it’s something to definitely keep in mind. Excessive masturbation, especially when a man is young and masturbating over aggressively, can damage the skin and other penile tissues. If this happens, stop masturbating and let your penis heal 110%. This type of scarring, too, can make your penis smaller.

Burns, as one can imagine, can make your penis smaller, too, and they are more common than most people realize. The most frequent cause is usually from scalding liquid being accidentally poured onto the penis. So, guys, if you like to cook, don’t do it in your boxers.

3) Low Testosterone or Growth Hormone – Low levels of testosterone while the male is still in the fetal stages can result in a smaller penis. In fact, it is one of the causes of micro-penis. When puberty rolls around, the same effect can happen if low-testosterone levels are present.

4) Hormones – Exposure to the wrong hormones can also greatly impact the size of a man’s penis. Such hormones can impede its growth (if the child is exposed) and can also make the penis grow smaller in an adult man, if he is exposed.

5) Smoking – Smoking destroys the fine capillary-bulb networks in your body, especially in your distal extremities and your penis. If you smoke, it’s wise to stop, as it will have an effect on your penis size and your ability to create and maintain an erection.

6) Genetics – Your DNA is the template for the size of your penis. If your genetic code dictates a bit smaller penis, then it’s your genes which may be the culprit.

7) Fetal Exposure to Chemicals – Many pesticides, chemicals, pollutants, and even poor diet can impede proper penis size. Especially if the mother is exposed to such chemicals while she is carrying the male fetus. Infants exposed to certain chemicals can also alter normal penis growth.

8) Radiation Exposure – Some scientists believe that exposure to excessive amounts of radiation, in the penile region of the male child or infant, can hamper penis growth. In the adult male, excessive radiation exposure can make the penis shrink in size and impede its function, too.

9) Penile Trauma – Penis fracturing and penile valve prolapse can be causes of a decrease in penis size and function.

10) The Angry Wife or Girlfriend – Most people have heard the tale of John and Lorena Bobbitt. To provide a short recap, she cut his penis in half with a knife. It was surgically reattached but his penile size was reduced from the trauma.

So, men, take care of your penis to ensure that you don’t lose any “inches.” Of course, also take steps to ensure that no one else does it for you.

Online Affiliated Marketing

Online Affiliate Marketing is a revenue sharing venture between a website owner and an online merchant. The website owner will place advertisements on his websites to either help sell the merchant’s products or to send potential customers to the merchant’s website, all in exchange for a share of the profits.

Affiliate Marketing Program

An affiliate marketing program is sometimes called an affiliate program, but also may be referred to as a pay-for-performance program or an associate program. An affiliate program is a marketing tool for the e-business that operates it, called merchant or advertiser and a source of revenue for the e-business that participates in it, called an affiliate or associate or publisher.

There are three ways to earn money through affiliate marketing:

1) Pay per Click or Cost-per-click affiliate programs: Every time a potential customer leaves the affiliate website by “clicking” on the link leading to the merchant’s website, a certain amount of money is deposited in the affiliate’s account. This amount can be pennies or dollars depending on the product and amount of the commission.

2) Pay per Lead or Cost-per-lead affiliate programs: The merchant pays the affiliate a set fee for each visitor who clicks through and takes and action at the merchant’s site, such as completing an online survey, registering at the site, or opting-in to receive e-mail.

3) Pay per Sale or Cost-per-sale affiliate programs: Every time a sale is made as a result of advertising on the affiliate’s website, a percentage, or commission, is deposited into the affiliate’s account.

The Amazon Story

The world’s biggest bookstore has one of the most successful examples of an affiliate program (called their associate program). Amazon now has well over 1 million affiliates! That is over 1 million websites actively promoting their products every single second of every single day. Amazon generates over 40% of its revenue through its affiliates program. That is over $3 billion in revenue every single year! As another (somewhat humble by comparison) example, Zeald generates over 50% of its revenue using its own unique affiliates program. Admittedly, not quite billions of dollars but that is definitely millions of dollars of revenue every single year.

Thousands of diverse e-businesses operate affiliate programs: E.g. barnes&nobale, dell,1-800-flowers, rackspace managed hosting etc.

Affiliate Programs as a Marketing Tool

The two major Advantages to merchant

1. Tie marketing effort directly to a lead or sales.

2. The merchant pays only for results.

The two major Advantages to affiliate

1. Additional source of revenue for affiliate who also sells products/services

2. Primary source of revenue for affiliate who offers entertainment or information

Two Approaches to Operating a Successful Affiliate Marketing

1. Acquire a huge and affiliate membership. e.g. The Amazon associates programs have over 1 million members as diverse as:

– RVPart – Sells parts for recreational vehicles and motor homes.

– Dilbert – Site for view cartoons, play games, send electronic greeting cards etc

– Books for Managers – Site for business reviews and lists of the currant top-selling business-related books provided by Business week, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and other publications.

– HaperCollins – Its site to promote its authors and their books. However, like many book publishers. HaperCollins sells its books through bookstores and not directly to the public.

2. Acquire a smaller number of highly effective affiliates that have a high volume of website traffic and offer web page content, products and services that are directly related to the merchant’s products and services.

Affiliate Programs as a Revenue Source

Participating in an affiliate program and then getting the most out of your participation involves:

– Selecting the appropriate merchant and affiliate program for your e-business

– Understand the terms of the affiliate agreement

– Add custom links to merchant’s site from affiliate Web pages

– Build traffic at affiliate site to increase click-troughs to merchant site.

Top 10 Tips for Choosing the Affiliate Program That Is Right for You

1. You have to identify a product or service for which there is a need. The product should be such that you would love and enjoy promoting it. You could start by searching for “Affiliate Programs” in the Search Engines.

2. The product or service should be relevant to your website.

3. It is always wise to join an affiliate program that is long standing, safe and secure and has a good reputation in the Internet world. This can be easily verified from the Better Business Bureau or other similar organizations. Visits to Forums and Discussion Groups will also provide you with a lot of useful information.

4. Most affiliate program providers provide a commission of 5% to 50%. The commission you earn for the sale of a product is your main income. So while choosing an affiliate program you should study the commission paid out and decide on a program that pays at least 35% for you to run your business successfully.

5. There should be a proper tracking system in place to record all the clicks and sales made through the text links and banners placed on your website, e-mails and other advertisements.

6. One important factor that is often overlooked is the “hits per sale ratio”. This indicates the number of hits that have to be made to a Text Link or Banner to generate a sale. This will give you an idea as to how much traffic is needed before a sale is made.

7. How often are commissions paid? This is another important matter that should be considered. Most reputed organizations pay their affiliates monthly or when they accumulate a minimum commission of $50 to $ 100 or as indicated by you. You should avoid any program that requires too many sales to reach the minimum amount.

8. Affiliate Programs are generally single tier or two tiers. A single tier program pays you for whatever business you have generated. On the other hand a two tier program pays you for the business you have generated and also a commission for the sales generated by a sub- affiliate, you have sponsored. A two tier program is always advantageous.

9. Long standing reputed organizations provide a whole range of tools and resources such as Banners, Text Links, Brochures, Websites and training for their affiliates. When choosing look out for such organizations because they certainly make life much easier and helps you grow your home based business.

10. Finally, you must read and understand the agreement before you join as an affiliate even if it happens to be the best organization in the world.

Understanding the Affiliate Agreement

The affiliate agreement created by the merchant and agreed by the affiliate, defines all aspects of the affiliate program and typically includes:

– Types of Web sites merchant will accept into the affiliate program

– Types of links allowed and guidelines regarding their use.

– Schedule and payments terms of fees and commissions

– Terms of usage of merchant logo, name and web content

– Technical specification that your web site must meet, if any

– Restrictions on types of content that may appear on affiliate sites

– Requirements for compliance with all government laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations.

Affiliate Tracking Systems

– Allow merchant to control how it credits click-throughs

– Monitor window of time in which affiliate can get credit for a click-through

– Record and store affiliate information

– Provide commission/fee reports

Affiliate management networks

An affiliate management network is a third-party entity that recruits affiliates, manages the registration process, tracks and properly credits all of the fee and commissions and arranges for payment. In return for these services, the affiliate management network collects from the merchant a percentage of each referral transaction’s fee or commission-perhaps as much 30 percent.

Well-established affiliate management networks: Example: Commission Junction, LinkShare [2]

Affiliate tracking technologies

To achieve this we develop a strategic online relationship with advertisers to improve the creation, management, and analysis of online marketing and sales activities. These activities are supported by a scalable and reliable tracking technology. Keeping track of the click-throughs and properly crediting the affiliates is a complex programming task. Companies such as BeFree and ClickTrade sell software that automatically monitors and credits all followed links resulting in a sale. Note that ClickTrade was acquired by Microsoft and is now co-branded as part of Microsoft bCentral.

Some tracking technologies are following:

– Custom links containing affiliate information or affiliate and merchant information

– Tracking cookies

– Third-party tracking software

– Application service provider tracking service

– Sub Domain tracking

– Database record matching.

Affiliate Marketing Risks and Challenges

Affiliate marketing is not without certain risks and challenges primarily form unethical affiliates and the negative perceptions online consumers have about tracking technologies.

Unethical Affiliates

– Cookie stuffing – Multiple cookies placed on visitor’s hard drive during a single visitor affiliate site.

– Spyware – General term used to describe software that has been installed on a personal computer without the owner’s permission, its unknowingly download and install spyware when you download games, screensavers, freeware utilities and so forth.

– Parasiteware – Redirects affiliate links and Replaces content of existing tracking cookies

– Spammers – Merchant is responsible if affiliates use spam to promote sites

– Negative perception of tracking cookies – Many consumers install and use blocking software which includes Block tracking cookies and Delete tracking cookies.

Why Affiliate Marketing Is Profitable for E-Business

If you have been considering an affiliate marketing venture, there are some very good reasons why you should go with this method of generating recurring revenue. Here are some of the ways that affiliate marketing can be a lucrative means of creating income that will be stable and allow you to grow exposure over time.

– One of the first advantages of affiliate marketing for the new entrepreneur is that the startup cost is very low. Most companies that offer affiliate marketing programs do not require any type of monetary investment on the part of the affiliate.

– The second expenses are limited to what you have to pay to connect with the Internet, the software you may need to load on your computer, and a web site where the ads associated with the affiliate marketing program can be placed. With web site hosting such an inexpensive service these days, setting up your own web site for the affiliate ads will be a breeze.

– Another reason that affiliate marketing is such a moneymaker is the fact that there are so many different types of ways to set up the program. You can go with the pay per click option, which works out great when it comes to promoting special offers. Ads that lead to product review sites often are a way to allow product users to go through your portal and leave comments on the items they purchase.

First Thing’s First-Avoid These Silly Affiliate Marketing Mistakes!

While affiliate marketing is a great way to earn a living, the fact is that many people become discouraged and drop out of programs. In many instances, the failure to be successful with affiliate marketing has to do with making a few simple mistakes. Here are some examples of those mistakes and why they should be avoided.

– A low-quality website with no original content and tossing in some affiliate links. While it is certainly true that you need to have a web site up and running in order to participate in an affiliate program, there is also the need to apply some effort to getting the word out about your site. Otherwise, the chances of people visiting your web site and clicking on one of the links are pretty slim.

– Another mistake many affiliate partners make is not choosing products that have some relevance to the content of your web site.

– Keeping your site content and the ads more or less relevant to one another will make it easier to generate revenue, and not fail as an affiliate marketer. Now, this may seem intuitive – but many make this mistake in subtle ways (i.e. they mismatch their customers with products).

– One final mistake that many affiliate marketers make is not sprucing up their web sites from time to time. Keeping the content fresh is one way of building and keeping a loyal reading audience because keeping the same old look and the same old text with nothing new to entice people back is a sure way to limit your chances at being a successful affiliate marketer. The fact is that you do have to proactively promote your site, keep the content fresh, and make sure the ads have some connection to the subject matter of your site.

What You Need Before Getting Started and Affiliated Marketing

While there is not a lot of expense in starting up as an affiliate marketer, there are a few things that you need to do if you really want to make money marketing other people’s products.

Here are some basic tips to help you line up all your things to do before you ever sign up for that first affiliate program.

– One of the basic needs for any successful affiliate program is to have a web site of your own. While it is possible to purchase ad space on sites and to advertise through Google Adwords, this is short term strategy setting up a basic web site that has a particular focus will make all the difference in the world to the success of your program. Keep in mind that your web site does not have to be complicated with a lot of flash media, animation or other fancy bells and whistles.

– In fact, if you plan on focusing your attention on affiliate marketing strategies that target the home consumer, you are better off with a basic site that will load quickly on a dial up connection. After all, dial-up is still extremely popular in a number of locations.

– Online payments are a great way to easily receive your affiliate payments and keep track of your earnings. From this angel, you may want to look into opening an account with one of the more popular online services that send and receive funds. i.g PayPal

– Another important aspect is determining just what your contact information will be, regarding communication with your affiliate program. This would include an email Address and physical mailing address. The email address should be one you have set aside specifically for your marketing business.

How to Pick the Best Product with the Best Payout and Great Demand

– One of the first things to think in terms of when it comes to affiliate marketing is determining where your talents and expertise happen to reside. One of the keys to picking the best products for your particular situation have to do with what you know and how much you know about it. As an example, a person that has worked in telecommunications for a number of years will probably know a great deal about telephony, related services, and technology that are used within that industry.

– Another aspect about setting up with the right products to promote has to do with where you see a niche to fill in. Finding a population or business sector that appears to be largely ignored in the marketing process can provide the inspiration you need to create a successful affiliate marketing program.

Rising to the Super Affiliate Level – What Constitutes a Super Affiliate?

A super affiliate is a marketing affiliate that has created a network that provides a high volume of traffic to affiliate products and a high percentage of completed sales from that traffic. The super affiliate is not one who reaches this level once, or even once in a great while.

– Creativity is an hallmark of a super affiliate. The ability to present the same old information is new ways will keep people interested. Super affiliates know how to look at products from a variety of different angles, determine a series of ways to present the product, and then go out and find an audience to match up with each one of those ways. For the super affiliate, there is always one more way to draw attention to a product, and find a larger audience than ever before.

– Another characteristic of a super affiliate is the desire and ability to master technology. This does not necessarily involve becoming an expert in information technology. But it does involve learning enough about existing technology to make good use of avenues already open on the Internet to promote products.

The Super Affiliate Marketing Tactics Exposed!

So what is it that allows a super affiliate to make hundreds or even thousands of sales when you struggle to make 5 sales of the same product? Why is that super affiliates rake in the cash while you struggle to get by? Think about this carefully: you are both selling the exact same product. The only possible difference is the tactics you use to market it. Below, we have included a couple tactics that we should use to sell more like super affiliates. Try to incorporate them into your strategy.

Tactic #1: Play the Long Game

Whenever some new launch is coming up, they will throw together a promotional website; and try to direct traffic to it using pay per click search engine advertisements or solo ads. But there is a major flaw with this approach: almost without exception, people will purchase a “big launch” product from an Internet marketer they already know this is why you have to play the long game, rather than focusing on each individual launch, prepare an approach that will work consistently for years to make more sales.

Tactic #2: Steal from Super Affiliates Whenever Possible

Many super affiliates are also big name Internet marketers. They have public personas that we can follow quite easily. We can find their user ld’s, blogs, mailing lists and their web site’s. Through this approach we can learn from each of them.

Tactic #3: Ignore Talk; Look for Revealed Preference

Talk is just that: talk. Many Internet marketers will talk about all sorts of different methods you can use to make money. They will tell you to advertise using Google AdWords or to build a list or to create viral reports. While some of this information may be useful and legitimate, we should ignore what they say and watch what they do. This is called “revealed preference.

Tactic #4: Make Friends with the Seller

Believe it or not, the seller wants you to be successful, too. So contact him ahead of time, make friends with him; and see if he has any particular advice for you on selling the product. Keep in mind that he talks to a lot of affiliates on a regular basis (especially around big launches) and has the best understanding of the tactics they actually use.

Become a Supreme Affiliate Marketing: Additional Supreme Affiliate Marketing Tips

If you want to make a six figure income – and possibly a seven figure income – then you have to do something that is truly different than what you are doing now. The big question is “how can I do this”? Here’s following suggestion:

Tip #1: Start Acting Like a Business Owner

If you want to be a successful affiliate product marketer, you have to find people who can augment your weakness (and, trust me, no matter how smart you are, you have plenty of weaknesses). Additionally, affiliate marketers do not work in isolation. Most of them are friends with the marketers they sell products for; and this gives them far more leverage and information than you have access to. So start thinking of yourself as a business owner, rather than a completely self-sufficient Internet marketer.

Tip #2: Concentrate on Regular Sales

Regular sales are easier to quantify and predict; and, for this reason, it is far easier to continually ramp up small, regular sales until you are making hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars each year. So don’t worry if you’re the top affiliate for some major new product launch. Instead, focus on regular sales and regular increases in sales.

Tip #3: Do What They Do – Not What They Say

Observe the channels of marketer through which he promotes his product. Watch carefully to determine what methods he’s using to make sales, so you can replicate his successes, rather than chasing after dreams he’s written about.

Conclusion

We may conclude that choosing an Affiliate Program that is right for you might be time consuming but a worth while process. Going through the above whole process will also be a learning curve for new entrepreneurs who are serious about starting a successful home based business. So there is an opportunity for business students and young entrepreneur to develop a simple website with limited budget that can be arranged easily through their own personal savings. This website can be developed with only $100 to $200 (Approximately). You can increase your business growth through adopting the approach where you can affiliate your business with different websites having relevancy with your business and internet heavy traffic as well.

Finally there’s no single path to affiliate marketing riches – and that’s a good thing. Instead, there are many pathways through which you can make your millions. So scout carefully, look for functional methods you can use, and implement them in your own efforts. You may be surprised with the results. But whatever you do – don’t continue to use strategies that haven’t worked in the past. Always think like super affiliates because they use a range of tactics and adopt different ways in order to consistently outperform other affiliates. But one thing you should always play the long game and build lists, create forums, and secure a captive audience in advance of product releases.

Penis Girth – Do You Have Just Average Penis Girth? See What You Are Missing Out On

Do you want to enjoy a better sex life? If you really want to do so, then perhaps the answer is getting the right penis girth. A recent study performed by “Psychology Today” interviewed nearly 1,500 women and asked them what type of penis they preferred. Interestingly, most women answered that they would rather be with a man who had a thicker penis girth.

The average penis girth for an adult human is 4.9 inches according to surveys conducted by condom companies. Penis girth for many men is far more important than the length of their member for some of the following reasons.

  • A penis with good girth fills the vagina a lot tighter than a thin or normal sized member, causing sex to be much more pleasurable for the man as the vagina firmly squeezes the penis which has greater than average penis girth.
  • A member with good girth also makes sex for the female more pleasurable for the same reason as the walls of her vagina are forced to expand and contract thus giving her more pleasure.
  • When the penis has above average penis girth, it also rubs on the clitoris located just outside the vagina thus causing simultaneous external stimulation. Clitoral stimulation is one of the best ways to make a woman orgasm.
  • The G spot for the woman is much more aroused when the shaft has good girth. The G spot is a spot on the upper side only two inches inside the vagina. Penis length plays no part in stimulating this spot while a thick shaft can constantly rub against it thus causing immense pleasure.

Take the dollar bill test to find out if you have average penis girth.

The US Dollar bill is 6.14 inches in length. Wrap the bill around the center of your shaft when it is fully erect. If it wraps around tightly or does not meet, you must already be experiencing all the benefits of good girth mentioned above. If it is wraps around very easily with a lot of slack, you have a lot of potential to enjoy much more pleasurable sex and also be able to pleasure your lover a lot more.

As an individual ages, the body’s cell start to die and because of this some of our body parts shrink in size. This is true when we age without any training. The penis suffers from the same problem due to the fact that it is unable to replenish the tissue cells at the pace it used to do in younger days. This implies that our penis girth can shrink as much as one inch in size as you grow older. As unfortunate as it may sound, loads of individuals out there are not aware about the natural methods to increase their girth size. As a result, they are unable to satisfy their partner as they grow older. Those who already do not have good girth size suffer the most. Most of us are well aware of the fact that one’s inability to satisfy one’s partner in the bed can affect other aspects of life as well.

Fortunately, there are many ways to increase penis girth without spending hundreds and thousands of dollars. The key over here is to have good knowledge on how to increase one’s penis girth. Specific targeted exercises can bring about accelerated gains in penis girth in addition to gains in length. As a matter of fact, penis girth enhancement exercises are a safe and affordable solution to a larger penis girth. Just imagine the benefits of having both a larger and thicker penis and the wonders it could do for your sex life.
