  1. 1. Affiliate marketing accounting software In this file, you can ref free useful materials about affiliate marketing accounting software and other materials for affiliate marketing accounting software such as affiliate programs, affiliate tips… If you need free ebook:  Top 21 affiliate marketing programs  Top 12 secrets to be successful in affiliate marketing  Top 8 free affiliate marketing ebooks for beginners pls visit: affiliatemarketingaz.com I. Affiliate marketing guides First of all, let me get something out of my system: I HATE quickbooks. The only good thing about Quickbooks is that Intuit offers a 30(?) day money back guarantee. No questions asked. And I’ve taken them up on that several times. I’m pretty sure that I have downloaded Quickbooks for Windows at least three different times, and one time on my Mac. Each and every time I am completely overwhelmed, lost, and frustrated because it is obvious that whoever designed quickbooks did so WITHOUT affiliate marketers in mind. And each time I requested, and was granted a refund. I don’t have “vendors” or “customers” or everything else like that that is standard to most other businesses. I understand that, as such, I’m probably going to be comparing apples to oranges here in several ways, but Quickbooks just sucks. Design sucks, usability sucks, and the fact that they try to upsell you around every single corner sucks! Not to mention, I suck at accounting, numbers, and anything that involves taxes. And I don’t have much desire to get better at it. Just give me an f*#ing solution that works and that someone as nubish as me can figure out. I have been looking for an accounting solution for my small business for probably the last 2-3 years. I finally found one. And it’s free as long as you don’t go over a certain amount of transactions per month. But it’s easily a service that I am willing to pay for as soon as I reach the transaction limit. Thank goodness that I don’t do many transactions though. Now that you’re dying of suspense, I’ll let the cat out of the bag . . . The service is called Indinero! If you already know about it, then why the hell didn’t you tell me about it a long time ago? If you’re familiar at all with Mint, the online personal finance software, you can think of Indinero as the small business accounting version of Mint. I have a prediction that eventually Indinero will be acquired by Mint, but that’s neither here nor there. The setup is lightening fast, and once you sign up, you simply connect your business bank/checking account and it automatically imports the last three months of transactions. There Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 1
  2. 2. is also a manual import that allows you to import further back than three months. So, say you wanted to throw all of your accounting history into Indinero from all of 2010, all you’d have to do is export from Jan 1, 2010 to Dec 31, 2010 into a CSV from your bank, if they offer it, which they should, and then format the data into whatever format Indinero wants it in, which is easy, then import it and you’re good to go. I was completely lost with my 2010 taxes at the beginning of this year when I was trying to figure all of this accounting crap out. I hate doing taxes by the way. Not that I hate paying them, I just hate that it’s so damned hard to figure out. Anyway, Indinero helped a lot with this. I imported all of 2010′s data from my bank like I mentioned above, then using Indinero, I categorized all of the transactions (which sucked because it took forever), then I ran a P&L report on Indinero for 2010, printed it out, then took that shit to my accountant. He’s filling out the mountains of paper work required for my simple s-corp as we speak. Damnit, I was supposed to call him today. . . It’s 1:52 AM right now. fml. Moral of the story: Thanks to Indinero, I was able to get my taxes done and the accounting future for my small business looks a lot brighter. I just need to keep up on categorizing my transactions. That’s really the hardest part . . . and it’s not hard. Just makes you think, which is never a good thing. Indinero kicks ass. Not to mention, one night when I was bored/happy with their service, I sent them an email that simply said “You Guys Kick Ass.” They replied nearly instantly asking me for my mailing address. They sent me some free stickers and a free shirt. II. Affiliate marketingstrategies Affiliate marketing is a low-cost way for merchants to build awareness and showcase their products and services. The model is simple; it works as a commission-based referral system. A partner or affiliate markets a merchant's products for a "piece of the pie." Affiliate marketing experts often make an income that can tally over five figures per month, however only 1 to 5% of thousands of marketers achieve this level. When an affiliate reaches this elite level they are often referred to as a "super" affiliate. Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 2
  3. 3. How does one become a super affiliate? Can anyone do it? Super affiliates have common tactics that they embrace and put into place. Anyone can become a super affiliate, but it will not come without blood, sweat, and a hefty time commitment. The typical super affiliate possesses the following traits:  Persistence  Patience  Thirst for Knowledge These three traits combined with the following strategy gives you the formula for the makings of a "super" affiliate. 1. Find a Unique Niche The mistake that many affiliate marketing hopefuls have in common is that they try to offer everything under the sun rather than focusing on a specific niche market. Do not scatter your efforts, focus on your niche, promote it, and sell it well. 2. Search Engine Marketing Once you've built your affiliate storehouse you will need to promote it. Many affiliates use pay-per-click engines. I suggest that you learn how to achieve organic search results or hire a search engine marketing company. This will save you from spending all your profits on pay-per-click engines. Only use pay-per-click engines if you know what you are doing, otherwise all your profits may end in the hands of Google Adwords or Overture. 3. Know Your Product, Know Your Audience Create a resource. By taking the time to learn about the products and/or services that you are offering you can create information that builds your credibility. That credibility builds trust. If your viewers do not have trust in you more than likely they will not purchase from your storehouse. If you want more information on the psychological process that an online buyer goes through I suggest that you read my article on the Five Levels of Internet Marketing and the Sales Process. This will Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 3
  4. 4. help you in creating a web site that converts well, which in return will increase your cash flow. 4. Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basket Promote products from different merchants. This way if you have a problem with receiving payment from a merchant, or their products do not convert well the effects on your business will be minimal. Watch out for exclusivity agreements; remember this is your business. Protect yourself and diversify so that you do not feel the famine effect if something goes wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with promoting niche products from different merchants. 5. Seek Knowledge and Embrace Change If you are familiar with Internet marketing at all you know that what worked three months ago may not work today. Stay on top of the trends. Seek knowledge, start by learning something new about affiliate marketing daily. For example remember those marketing tools called "banner" that use to drive sales at an astronomical rate a few years ago? Well those banners developed a term called "banner blindness." That means most online viewers will not click on banners even if they do pertain to what they are looking for. To be a "super" affiliate you must always spend time reading, learning, and embracing the changes in Internet marketing. 6. Don't Give Up It's hard to do, and most of the time those dabbling in affiliate marketing give up way too soon. Monitor your statistics, watch to see what is working and what is not. Make changes when necessary. Do one thing daily to promote your storehouse and be patient. Before you know it you will start getting payments. Remember that it will not happen overnight. Encompass and develop the persistence, patience, and knowledge. Then follow the tactics I've mentioned above and you are on your way to becoming a "super" affiliate.
