        1. Welcome and Update from Elena
        ============================================================

        Hello again, and a warm welcome to all the new subscribers
        who have joined us since the last issue!

        Keeping it short and sweet this week folks.  AHBBO is a
        day late this week as I'm moving overseas at the end of this
        week and time's running away from me at a gallop.  For the
        same reason AHBBO will not be published next week (July 3).
        It will be back July 10.

        Thanks to all of you who submitted your sites for the
        Web Site Pick segment over the past week.  Keep 'em
        coming!  Segment 9 for details.

        There is no Web Watch segment this week.  Instead, I'm
        running a press release that I think will be of interest to
        many work at home parents.  It's at segment 4.  Web Watch
        will return in two weeks time.

        Apologies to those participating in the AHBBO "Build Your
        Own Website Tutorial" but, because of my impending move,
        I have not had time to prepare the next instalment for this
        week's issue so it, too, will return in two weeks time.  I'm
        sure you all have more than enough to do though following
        the last two instalments!

        As always, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy this
        week's issue.

        Remember, this ezine is for YOU! If you have comments
        or suggestions for topics you would like to see addressed,
        or would just like to share your experiences with other
        subscribers, I want to hear from you! Please send comments,
        questions and stories to Contact By Email .
         

        ============================================================
        2. Home-Based Business Idea of the Week - Garage Sales
        ============================================================

        Pick almost any city or town in the country, drive through any
        middle class neighborhood or residential area on the weekend,
        and you're sure to spot at least a half dozen garage sales.

        What's being sold at these garage sales? The accumulated
        "junk" people no longer use or want taking up space in or
        around their homes. Are they making any money with these
        garage sales? You'd better believe it.  It's not at all
        uncommon to make $600 with a weekend garage sale.

        Now, what of all those people who haven't the time to gather up
        all the items "just taking up space" in and around their homes
        and staging a garage sale to get rid of them?  This is where
        you enter the picture. Your enterprise will be an ongoing garage
        sale of items donated and collected from these people who lack
        the inclination to put on garage sales of their own.

        Step one is education: Spend a few weeks visiting all the
        garage sales, swap meets and flea markets in your area.
        Find out what's being offered for sale, what people are buying,
        and how the merchandise is being sold. Generally, an item
        is tagged with a price, but the seller is open to almost any
        reasonable offer from the customer.   Another thing you want to
        make a mental note of is the way the merchandise is displayed,
        and how the customers are allowed to browse.

        You start your own garage sale business by cleaning out your
        own basement, attic, closets and garage. Talk to your relatives
        and friends; tell them what you're going to do and ask them for
        donations of no-longer used or unwanted items. It's here that
        you'll get your first experience in negotiating, and finally, an
        agreement for you to display and sell other people's
        merchandise for a percentage of the sales price.

        Once you've had a little experience with this, you'll be able to
        advertise in the newspaper that you buy garage sale items,
        or take them on consignment for a percentage of the final
        sale price.

        As for the garage sales themselves, run an ad in your area
        shopper's newspaper for about three days in advance of, and
        up through the day of your sale. Once you're operating on a
        regular schedule, you'll want to change your ad schedule and
        the style of your advertising. But to get started, go with small
        classified ads simply announcing your garage sale,
        emphasizing that you've got something of interest for everyone.
        The secret to outstanding garage sale profits is in having the
        widest or largest selection of merchandise.

        You should make an old-fashioned "sandwich board" sign
        to display in front of your house when your garage sale is
        open for business. This will pull in your neighbors, if you
        haven't already informed them, and attract the people driving
        by. Sandwich boards are sometimes set out at key traffic
        intersections not far from the site of the garage sale, to attract
        attention and point the way. (Check local ordinances to see
        if this is permitted in your area.)  Also, search out and use all
        the free bulletin boards in your area.

        You have to give your sale some flair. The people doing the
        most business are the ones with interesting displays, action
        and color.

        Try to have as wide a selection of colors as possible in your
        clothing racks, and mix them for a rainbow effect. Make sure
        that your jewelry items shine and sparkle. Arrange them in
        and with jewelry boxes, jewelry ladders and other items sold
        for the purpose of showing off jewelry while keeping it neatly
        organized.

        It's almost a compulsion of many people to go shopping, to
        search for interesting and sometimes rare and valuable items.
        This fact alone will keep you as busy as you'll ever want to
        be staging and holding garage sales. The market is so vast,
        and the appetite so varied, that anything from a brass
        bedstead to a used diary of somebody's long-forgotten
        grandmother will sell, and sell fast at garage sales.

         Start To Your Own Online Business
        ============================================================

        Copyright © 2017 by Elena Fawkner

        "Where is all the help I'm supposed to get.  I have been buying
        ezine and classified ad builders and signing up for Echecks and
        Virtual credit cards.  In the meantime I have no business and no
        ads set up.  When does all this happen?  Let's go here.  I spent
        all day on this.  I'm running out of time."

        I kid you not, this is the sum total of an actual email that hit
        my inbox this week.  Not only did I not know this person from
        Adam, this was the first and only email I had ever received from
        her and to this day, I have no idea what she's talking about.
        Presumably, she signed up for one of the affiliate programs I
        promote from my site and was asking, in her own inimitable
        style, for my help.  Although I am always ready and willing to
        help anyone I can, this is most definitely NOT the way to go
        about asking for it.  Needless to say, I let her know what I
        thought of her approach in NO uncertain terms.

        The attitude displayed in this person's email to me (and she is
        by no means an isolated example) exemplifies why so many
        people fail to make a success of their online businesses.
        Leaving aside the utter rudeness of the approach, notice the
        impatience, the expectation to be up and running in a day, the
        HURRY, the apparent belief that real world principles such as
        courtesy and good manners don't apply online (they do).  Think
        this person is going to last the distance?  What kinds of
        tactics do you think she is capable of resorting to in pursuit
        of the almighty dollar?

        So, let's take a realistic look at affiliate programs, what they
        can and can't do for your business and how to maximize your
        chances of creating a successful, long-term business with
        them.
         

        WHAT IS AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM?

        An affiliate program (also known as a reseller, associate,
        referral or partnership program) is essentially a revenue-sharing
        arrangement whereby you, the affiliate, receive payment from
        the owner of a product or service that you promote on their
        behalf.

        Affiliate programs are an excellent way for the new internet
        entrepreneur to start an online business.
         

        TYPES OF AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

        There are various types of affiliate programs.

        The most simple involves you, the affiliate, placing a banner ad,
        graphic or text link at your site which is linked to the site of
        the business you are promoting.  This link is coded with your
        unique affiliate ID so that the site visitor is recorded at the
        target site as having originated from your site, thereby allowing
        you to be credited with the sale.

        Payment is generally a fixed percentage of the sale value
        (commission) or "pay per click", where the affiliate is paid a
        certain amount for every time a site visitor clicks on the link
        at the affiliate's site, whether or not a sale is made.

        The more sophisticated affiliate programs are multi-tier and
        allow the affiliate to earn commissions not only on the
        traffic they directly refer to the target site but also a
        proportion of sales generated by their sub-affiliates.
         

        BENEFITS OF AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

        The greatest benefit of affiliate programs is that when you are
        just starting out in your own online business you don't have
        to worry about creating your own product or service.  You just
        promote someone else's and get a share of the revenue pie
        for your efforts.

        You also don't have to concern yourself with warehousing,
        transport or logistics headaches.  All of this is handled by
        the business whose products/services you are promoting.
        All you need concentrate on is driving traffic to that
        business's website.  This means that a high proportion of
        your revenue is profit.

        The owner of the product/service is also responsible for
        collecting payment, customer service and the myriad other
        details that come up on a day to day basis in running the
        business.
         

        DISADVANTAGES OF AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

        The main and obvious disadvantage of affiliate programs
        is that it is the owner of the product/service who earns the
        lion's share of the profit on the sale.

        You're working on commission.  You will NEVER earn by
        way of affiliate program commissions as much as you can
        earn by way of profits from producing and selling your own
        product/service.

        As a result, affiliate programs represent a high
        opportunity cost when you consider what you could
        earn if you instead channeled the time and energy you
        spend on promoting affiliate programs into creating and
        promoting your own product/service.

        For this reason, it does not make sound business sense to
        rely solely on affiliate program income for the longer term
        growth of your business.

        Instead, think of them as a way of dipping your toe in the
        water when you're first getting started, and a nice little
        sideline once you've created your own product/service.  Do
        NOT build your business around affiliate programs with the
        intention this will always be the backbone of your business.
        You'll be stunting your own growth if you do.
         

        CHOOSING THE RIGHT AFFILIATE PROGRAMS FOR YOUR
        BUSINESS

        So, keeping in mind what affiliate programs can and can't
        do for your business, let's turn to what you should look for
        when choosing an affiliate program or programs to promote
        in your business.

        => Synergistic Products/Services

        First off, and this is a cardinal rule, only promote those
        programs which will allow you to create synergies with your
        site.  This means selecting programs that naturally
        complement the subject matter of your site and that will
        therefore be of interest and relevance to your site visitors.
        This will ensure your prospects (ie your site visitors) are
        pre-qualified which will result in a relatively higher conversion
        ratio (the ratio of visitors to purchases) than would be the
        case if your traffic is untargeted (which will be the case if
        you promote unrelated products and services from your site.)

        => Quality In All Things

        Keeping the need for synergy uppermost in mind, look
        for quality programs first and foremost.  The last thing you
        want to waste your time, money and reputation on is
        a shoddy product or service.  There are just too many
        quality programs out there to settle for anything less.

        => Stability of Company

        Look for a company that's been around for a while and that's
        reputable and stable (both financially and in its management).
        Any reputable company will have full contact details readily
        available so do your research.

        => References

        Look for testimonials and references from other affiliates.
        If the company you're interested is not forthcoming when
        it comes to putting you in touch with other affiliates, move
        on.

        => Affiliate Agreement

        Look for a professional, considered and detailed affiliate
        agreement (contract).  This shows that the company is
        serious about its business.

        Watch out for exclusivity clauses and other restraints.
        Some affiliate agreements will require that you not promote
        competing businesses' products and services.  This is not
        to say you should avoid such agreements.  As a general
        rule, it is your interests not to promote competing programs
        anyway.  Just be aware of what the agreement says on the
        subject to avoid getting yourself into hot water.

        Look also for an agreement that treats spammers harshly.
        This protects not only the company but other affiliates as
        well.  The last thing you or any other reputable affiliate
        needs is to have your reputation and the reputation of the
        product/service you are promoting besmirched by these
        sorts of tactics.

        => High Commissions

        Promoting someone else's affiliate program necessarily
        requires that you divert traffic away from your site and
        towards someone else's.  Make sure you're properly
        compensated with a high commission structure.  And be
        sure to set up your link so that when the visitor clicks
        on it, a new browser window is opened for the target site.
        This at least keeps your site in front of the visitor so they
        can go back to your site once they've finished at the site
        your link has taken them to.

        => Lifetime Commissions

        Look for affiliate programs that will credit you with not
        only THIS sale but all other sales the customer may make
        in the future.  Many programs are set up so that the customer
        is identified as "yours" so that when the customer returns
        to the target site in three months time, the sale is recorded
        as having been generated by you.

        => Residual Commissions

        Include programs that offer residual commissions in your
        portfolio.  Good examples are webhosting services,
        autoresponder services and the like where customers sign up
        for a continuous service that requires periodic, regular
        payments.  You receive periodic, regular commissions as a
        result.

        => Tracking of Commissions

        Look for programs that allow you real-time access to your
        stats so you can keep easy track of your commissions.

        => Reliability of Payment

        When checking with affiliate references, find out what the
        business's record is on paying out commissions.  If they're
        slow or there appears to be a pattern of problems, keep
        looking.

        => Frequency of Payment

        Make a note of payment schedules too.  Some programs pay
        weekly, some monthly, some quarterly.  Some only pay once
        you accumulate commissions of a certain amount.  None of
        these arrangements are necessarily good or bad in and of
        themselves.  Just be sure you know what to expect.

        => Programs that Require Payment Up Front

        Two words:  MOVE ON!

        => Affiliate Support

        Finally, take a look at what support the business offers its
        affiliates to make sales.  Do they provide resources such as
        sample ads, banners, logos and the like?  Do they provide
        useful advice about maximizing your sales?  A good affiliate
        program provides affiliates with a LOT of support in these
        areas.
         

        MAKING MONEY FROM AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

        OK, now you know what to look for in an affiliate program.
        Here's how to maximize your sales of those products and
        services and, therefore, your commissions:

        =>  Get Your Own Website

        No ifs, no buts.  DON'T rely on the you-beaut self-replicated
        job the company provides all its affiliates.  Link to that site
        from your main site.

        => Get Your Own Domain Name

        This presents a much more professional image.  Many people
        won't give the time of day to a business that thinks so little of
        its prospects that the owner won't shell out 70 bucks for a
        domain name.  So mean business and look like it.

        => Get Traffic To Your Site (Duh!)

        As a rough guide, you will need at least 500 targeted
        unique visitors a day to your site to make reasonable money
        from affiliate programs.

        => You Must Have A Site That Will Attract Repeat Visitors

        If your website is nothing more than a splash page consisting
        of little else other than banners for umpteen different affiliate
        programs, forget it.  Your site must be worthy of your visitor's
        time and interest before you can even begin to think about
        converting that visitor into a paying customer.  So create a real
        site with real content that will keep them coming back for more.

        => Personal Testimonials

        A personal testimonial will result in more sales than a mere
        link or advertisement.  So take the time and trouble to write
        a personal endorsement of the product or service you are
        promoting.  And, of course, it goes without saying that in order
        to write a personal endorsement, you must know that of which
        you speak.  NEVER promote a program you haven't first
        purchased yourself.  If you don't think enough of your program
        to invest in it, how do you expect to persuade others to?

        => Promote With Your Sig File

        Include a link to your site in the signature of every email you
        send.

        => Promote In Your Own Ezine

        Finally, if you're not already publishing your own ezine or
        newsletter to stay in touch with your site visitors, start.  It's
        a great way to promote not only your site but also the affiliate
        programs you promote from your site.
         

        MAKING SERIOUS MONEY FROM AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

        The only way of making SERIOUS money from affiliate programs
        is by creating your own product or service and recruiting affiliates
        to sell for YOU.
         

        The affiliate program phenomenon is one of the Internet's true
        success stories.  It provides a toe-hold for the would-be internet
        entrepreneur to begin a real, live business of his or her very own.
        But the real beauty of affiliate programs lies not in what they can
        do for you, as an affiliate, but what they can do for you, as a
        recruiter of affiliates for your own program.  By all means jump
        on the bandwagon and start promoting other people's products to
        get your start.  But don't wait too long to start developing your
        own product line.  There is a ready-made salesforce numbering
        in the millions ready and waiting to sell it for you.

        4.  Special Announcement - WAHMfest Northern California
        ============================================================

        WAHMFEST Northern California 2017 SPOTLIGHTS
        WORK-AT-HOME MOMS (AND DADS)
        SACRAMENTO, CA- June 16 - WAHMfest, a unique
        Work-At-Home-Moms-Expo, is coming to Sacramento, CA,
        on October 7th.

        The Event will be held at Arden Fair Mall, from 10am-9pm.
        Parents who have chosen to interrupt their careers to care
        for their children, as well as those wanting to learn more
        about home-based employment or volunteer opportunities,
        are invited to attend the event.

        Many parents are meeting the challenges of career and
        family by finding creative ways to combine the two, according
        to Heike Boehnke-Sharp, Director of the Northern California
        WAHMfest , and owner of a Home-Based Business.

        While some opt for long-established home-based opportunities
        such as AVON, Mary Kay or Pampered Chef, others have
        launched their own consulting or free-lance businesses in
        areas like marketing support, public relations, graphic design,
        and website development, all of which can be accomplished in
        a home office with a computer and modem. Others are
        seeking telecommuting arrangements.

        "The term "stay-at-home-mom" is being redefined"' says
        Marybeth Henry, Executive Director of WAHMfest. "More and
        more mothers AND fathers are trading in their careers to work
        from home, or are looking to do so. WAHMfest is an enormous
        resource for information, and for companies that want to hire
        highly motivated, professional workers, but don't necessarily
        need a 9-to-5 presence at the office".

        Forty plus exhibitors will participate in WAHMfest with
        information, business opportunities and advice from those who
        have "been there," according to Sharp. You will find well-known,
        established businesses, as well as many new businesses that
        have launched in the last several years and will soon be a
        household name. Door prizes, speakers, and a few surprises
        will make this day both informative and fun for the entire family.

        If you are interested in participating, booth spaces,
        sponsorship and advertising are still available for the program and
        year-round, web-based directory. Attendance is free.

        WAHMfest will be held at Arden Fair Mall, 1689 Arden Way,
        Sacramento, CA.. Take the Arden Way East exit from I-80. For
        directions see http://www.ardenfair.com.  Additional information
        on the event available at , by
        calling 916-924-1806, or by e-mailing Sharp at

        5.  Pro-Motion Column - Answers for the "Pro in Motion"
        ============================================================

        by jl scott, ph.d., Director, IAPO

        Q. I have a question regarding your answer about sending out
        articles not being seen as "spam." In your opinion is it "spam"
        to contact publishers one time to ask them to join, for example,
        an affiliate program?

        I don't mean just send thousands of emails a day to any
        publisher I encounter. Is finding suitable publishers and
        personally asking them to join, considered "spam?" I mean a
        one-time email to the publisher whom I see as suitable.

        As you wrote last week contact must be made somewhere, right?
        Well this is contact, don't you think? (Max)

        A. Yes - this is contact. This is also a tricky question to
        answer.

        So-called "spam" is technically Unsolicited Commercial Email.
        "Commercial" indicating that you are trying to sell something.
        Are you asking these publishers to buy a product or service in
        order to join the affiliate program? If so - you could
        definitely be nailed for "spam."

        If the program requires a purchase in order to join, you would
        probably be safe if you offered the product/service to the
        publisher for free in exchange for their recommendation in their
        publication. This, of course, is a common practice and I don't
        believe that most publishers mind this type of email.

        Be sure that your message is a well-written business letter.
        Don't allow it to look like an ad. Give full details and be
        very explicit about the terms of the offer. Basically, you are
        trying to set up a contract. You would also need to give the
        publisher the opportunity to try the product/service to be sure
        it is something (s)he would wish to promote - before a final
        commitment is made.

        If your contact with the publishers is to convince them to buy
        what you are selling in order to join the affiliate program, you
        could be walking on thin ice. Some won't mind - some will. Why
        take the chance?

        8.  Letters to the Editor
        ============================================================

        I received a lot of feedback from last week's article on MLM ...
        a controversial subject indeed.   I wrote last week's article in
        an attempt to demystify MLM because I think it gets an unfair
        rap, especially online.  And no, for those of you who asked or
        who are wondering, I am NOT involved in the industry.  I'd be
        awful at it.  I wrote the article from a purely objective point of
        view.  I welcome your contribution to the debate.  Have you
        had any experiences with MLM, good or bad?  Let's hear them.
        To kick us off, here's a letter I received this week from Dave
        Colliver.
         

            ~*~*~*~*~*~*~

        Elena,

        Regarding your article "Not MLM!" - I do tend to agree that, yes,
        it is a legitimate and very sensible business model in many
        respects.  However, as a bricks and mortar marketer and now
        cyber marketer I can add to the debate with one fundamental
        difference between MLMs and Affiliate programs.

        It's about control and ethics.

        I have explored several MLMs and while my investigations are
        certainly not exhaustive I have found one common trend. It
        stems from two points that you made in your article.

        1. No previous experience / knowledge required.
        2. Dependant on your own persuasive selling skills.

        Several MLMs I have researched quite thoroughly use the power
        of personal endorsement from your recruiter which in turn is
        encouraged of you "by following the simple steps outlined in the
        information pack".

        The simple steps include your editorial containing information
        about your success and "actual figures" of your previous
        earnings and that of your upline. You are meant to send this
        out to your prospective downline - but as a newly recruited
        member you have no previous success or actual figures and
        with not too much research you find your upline is in the
        same position.

        Quite bluntly this is False Advertising and in Australia at least
        a breach of Section 52 & 53 of the Trade Practices Act. [These
        sections deal with deceptive and misleading conduct and false
        representations, respectively: Ed.]

        Without prior experience, members may well not know this and
        the misinformation is perpetuated until as has happened the
        industry generates its own bad reputation.

        Now I know that not all MLMs subscribe to this practice but
        without the control of your downline there is nothing to prevent
        the odd member from adopting this approach - especially as
        it is dependant on "your own persuasive selling skills".

        With a well constructed affiliate program, however, the merchant
        simply allows the "downline" or "sales representatives" to direct
        potential customers to controlled (and legally accurate) editorial
        and sales information.

        While control is not total, it is certainly better.

        [No, the control is certainly not total.  For example, in the past
        week I have seen two identical ads for a certain *affiliate*
        program (not MLM), each of which proclaimed their respective
        advertiser had lost 56 pounds in weight and 4 inches from around
        the waist by following the weight loss program being advertised:
        Ed.]

        In the bricks and mortar world this is simply packaging and is
        why Coca Cola provide display fridges free of charge and other
        manufacturers supply ready written advertising, brochures and
        contracts. In the extreme it leads to franchise agreements which
        are constantly monitored.

        I almost hate to add the suggestion but when the unregulated
        behaviour mentioned above is added to an e-mail campaign you
        get the reasons why SPAM and hatred thereof occurs - restricting
        the efforts of legitimate e-mail marketers.

        I am not one of the many vigilantes (whose reactions are often
        less legal or ethical than the alleged offenders) and do welcome
        open debate on all of these issues. I hope my own opinions are
        of some value to you.

        P.S. I have constructed a web site for a successful MLM member,
        who has an extensive downline, providing information with affiliate
        levels of control while assisting the downline to grow through the
        use of the proven (ethical) formula.

        Keep up the good work.

         Paris Mannion's BuildFountains.com
        ============================================================

        BuildFountains.com is the website of AHBBO subscriber,
        Paris Mannion:

        "BuildFountains.com grew out of an interest in helping spread
        "fountain awareness", a new hobby for many crafters and home
        decorators. Meditators and harried office workers quickly
        recognized fountains' beneficial health effects. All enjoy
        connecting to nature and creative self-expression.

        "For almost 2 years I've worked on this material to showcase
        others' homemade fountains, provide Top Ten Tips on fountain
        building, and produce a monthly indoor fountain ezine with
        illustrated fountain projects. Visitors will find a complete table
        top fountain supply store plus my book Create Your Indoor
        Fountain, an easy to follow guide with 11 projects."

        Paris launched BuildFountains in November, as a
        refinement of her old fountain site SpringCoach.com/fount. Her
        goal is help fountain builders discover the creativity within
        themselves. As Paris says: "While mounding rocks or shells
        around a small submersible water pump in a container of their
        choice, people are thrillled to discover the varied ways to
        personalize their fountain."
