I’ve listed a resource for you to learn about affiliate marketing and it’s one of the best on the internet.

Remember, when you become an affiliate you are actually a commissioned sales person, so you earn more when the people you refer to the merchant sells more. You do not sell the product or service – you find people interested in them and refer them to the merchant. The merchant’s job is to sell their own product or service.

Question by Eric: What kind of permission do I need to make a sports website for professional teams?
A friend and I want to make a blog-type website about professional and college level sports in our area. Would we be able to use logos? Or pictures of players?

Thanks so much!

Answer by BORN2B1
you and your friend would have to contact the team your doing it about and talk with them because you dont wanna get sued over something silly. Most sports teams have their names and logos copyrighted and will sue you. It also depends if you are gonna be making money off of this website or not because then you’re talking royalties and that can get expensive. So i reccomend not doing until you find out more about it not worth getting sued over!

Question by BarbieDoll: How much money do I need to get into Forex Currency Trading?
How much money do I need to get into Forex Currency Trading??? Like whats the minimum and how much money could expect to make if I do well?

Best answer:

Answer by Alexander Collins

My recommendation is to start at least from 100-200$ . Ff you will have less money on your account you need to wait a year to double it.
Your income can depend from your style of trading.
If you will trade manually you can make 100 pips a month. But, for example, if you will use at least semi-automated Forex system that will trade instead of you and can make up to 800 pips it’s completely another situation. When I was started Forex I made the right choice and start automated trading with Forexeasystems.

Hope, you will succeed on Forex.
Best wishes!

How to make money from your blog: 5 tips

By Jeff Wuorio
Many of the people who write blogs today simply want to share their opinion on something. But then there are the business-minded folks, who have found a way to use blogs, or Web logs, to bring in a little extra cash too.

I recently wrote a column detailing how to get a blog up and running to boost your small business.

If you’re interested in taking it further — blogging for bucks, if you will — here are five strategies that could turn your blog into a moneymaker.

1. Sell advertising. This is likely the most common means of leveraging a blog to generate income. If yours happens to become a well-known blog, or one that is well-received in a particular niche, it’s always possible to sell ad space on your own. For lesser-known blogs, services such as Google’s AdSense or BlogAds enable bloggers to establish ad programs.AdSense’s — which lets you select several ads that are consistent with the content of your blog — pays you based on how many readers click on the ads for further information. Even better, it’s free. BlogAds, on the other hand, hooks bloggers up with would-be advertisers and levies a commission in return for any ad placements that result. “The nice thing, too, is that the ads are relatively unobtrusive,” says Scott Allen, co-author of “The Virtual Handshake: Opening Doors and Closing Deals Online.”

2. Help sell others’ products. Here is another click-through opportunity. Affiliate programs enable your blog to serve as a conduit between readers and online sites offering various goods and services. One popular choice is If, for instance, you offer book reviews or even just mention a book in passing in your blog, an affiliate program provides a means for your readers to click directly from your blog to Amazon to obtain further information about the book. If they break out the checkbook or charge card, you get paid as well.

3. Solicit contributions. Not every blog-related income opportunity involves hawking goods or services. As Blanche DuBois did in “A Streetcar Named Desire,” consider relying on the kindness of strangers. Ask for contributions. If, for instance, your small-business blog supports a cause or issue in some fashion — say you repeatedly mention tax reform, health care or some other topic — you can always ask for reader support.Even if you’ve attracted a group of regular followers who simply enjoy reading what you have to say, they may be willing to underwrite their loyalty with a little financial help.

Programs such as PayPal make it easy to establish a simple on-site contribution collection button. “There are lots of worthy ’cause’ blogs that would qualify for donations from grateful members of the blog community,” says Las Vegas communications consultant Ned Barnett.

4. Market your services in your blog. Many people associate blogs exclusively with a cyberspace-based soapbox — a place to shout your opinions and little more than that. Granted, blogs are an ideal venue to share your thoughts with others, but don’t overlook their capacity to generate new business as well. When appropriate, work in references to what you do and, in turn, what you may be able to offer any would-be client or customer who may be reading your blog. That can spread your opinion and your business moxie at the same time.”Instead of short commentaries that begin a dialogue with readers, as many blogs do, I write the equivalent of journal articles that demonstrate my abilities, strategies and perspectives on specific issues,” Barnett says. “When it resonates, it means money. Since starting this approach, I have generated three new paying clients and brought in about $ 10,000 on revenue — directly attributable to specific blogs.”

5. Use a blog to deepen your existing customer relations . Nor does any marketing material inserted in blog content have to be limited to bringing in completely new business. By using a blog to regularly communicate with existing clients as well as other readers, you can take advantage of the opportunity to fully inform them about everything your business does. That may expand your readers’ understanding of the full scope of your products or services.”My blog has helped existing clients determine the range of my skills and services,” says Ted Demopoulos of Demopoulos Associates, a Durham, N.H. consulting and training concern. “One client who had only used me for training in the past was surprised at my range of expertise and is now using me for a consulting project. Another who only used me on technical projects is now considering me for a more business-oriented project.”

Good Luck:-)

Question by : I’am a senior on a fixed income I need to find some information to fix the thermostat on my pellet stove mysel?
my automatic thermostat on my pellet stove won’t turn off when it reaches a certain temperature it just keeps running.

Best answer:

Answer by generalw13
You’ll either need to have a little bit of knowledge of electricity and some test equipment or get a hold of a schematic.
Depending upon the size and model, the thermostat may directly control the unit’s operation or it may be linked to a control board with several relays or contactors. I’ve heard about many circuit board failures on pellet stoves. It’s possible that many of them are attributable to burned contacts on relays sticking.
We may be of a little more help if you can post the brand and model.

With a reported 17,000 patents expected to be at Google’s disposal when it completes its $ 12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility, the search giant may only need to utilise a group of 18 specific patents to help protect its Android ecosystem in the face of increased legal action in the smartphone and tablet industry.

Bloomberg reports that Motorola’s intellectual property dates back to 1994, including technological innovations covering location services, antenna designs, e-mail transmission, touch-screen motions, software-application manages and 3G protocols. These patents are said to be behind Motorola’s lawsuits against Apple and are the strongest patents available to the company, says David Mixon, a patent lawyer at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings in Huntsville, Alabama.

Google, which owns around 1,000 patents of its own, will add Motorola’s 17,000 awarded patents to its portfolio, with a further 7,500 Motorola patents waiting to be validated. The search giant has been involved in two lawsuits surrounding its Android operating system but has remained largely untouched in recent legal fights between Apple and makers of Android smartphones and tablets, particularly Samsung and HTC.

The new patents will arm Google against its rivals, positioning the company so it may be able to fend of potential litigation because of its broad patent portfolio, which could in-turn be used against a company accusing it of infringing its intellectual property.

Motorola has already asserted its patents against Apple, targeting the iPhone 4, iPad, AppleTV and MacBook Air, utilising four of the 18 “strong” patents against RIM to secure a cross-licensing deal last year.
