Performance Marketing With 2-Tier Affiliate Programs



Performance marketing with 2-tier affiliate programs means that you sign up for a certain program to promote then you get someone else to do the same. Thus, you become an affiliate marketer. You are promoting someone else’s program or product or service. The person you get to sign up under you is the second tier.

Part 1 is a Quick Start Guide to Lead Generation
The book explores Landing Tabs, Facebook Ads and Promoted Posts. Lead generation is  a mix of driving completely new cold traffic to our content, products or services and also, getting in front of warm traffic, which are people who have already expressed an interest, but perhaps haven’t taken any significant action yet.


This means we’ll be advertising to those who have never heard of us and to current fans that are not yet paying customers.


Landing Tabs

Landing Tabs are actually more important now on Facebook than ever before.


A Landing Tab is commonly known as a Squeeze Page in the online marketing world.


So, the flow of a Landing tab is to utilize the power of Facebook to generate the targeted leads. It should attract the prospective customers to your page and your tab and then, encourage them to leave you their name and email address so that you can market to them via email.


In order to get more customers for our business, we need to generate leads. We need to have a steady stream of people interested in our products and services that we can connect with, engage with and sell to! Learn how to use Landing Tabs and Facebook business pages.

Part 2 is about what happens after you’ve generated all your fantastic new leads. It’s all about communication, engagement, leading warm prospects to take more action with you and building your reputation, your profile and your community on Facebook by using pages, groups and your profile. All of these are explained in detail in this ebook.

Blogging For Your Home Business

Copyright © Rahimah Sultan


Set a Routine


Set a schedule and stick to it. Decide what days you’re going to publish articles for your home business and get them out on those days. If you’re new to blogging and unable to write articles daily, then do it two or three times a week. Regular posting can enable you to move up in search engine ranking, and it keeps you in front of your audience.


If blogging is only one aspect of your home business, and you’re not in a position to outsource work, you may not have the time to post articles several times a week. In that case, there are many sources for published articles that allow you to republish, as long as you keep the article intact and the author’s resource box.

Blogging Tips

by Rahimah Sultan

Are you having trouble with blogging? Are you at a loss for article subjects?

Here are a few blogging tips.

There are subjects all around you. Just be aware of your surroundings.

You can use newspaper headlines, people watching (what you’ve observed someone doing or making, etc.) or what someone did at the grocery or department store.

You can also research information online. It’s your blog.

You can talk about whatever you wish. If you have a niche-specific blog you probably want to make the article relative to that niche.

While making the article relative to your niche you can use analogies.

For example, you observed someone buying flowers. You can tell a story about the type and color, how carefully they were handled and discuss the customer service.

Then if your niche is internet marketing, you can relate this to products for your customers and your follow up customer service.

Once you think of a topic make an outline just like you did for school papers.

The outline should include:

A Title
An Introduction
Some Key Points
A Conclusion
A Resource box

Here is a very basic outline.


The title should be in bold type and it should be engaging. It should set the tone for the entire article.


An introduction is self explanatory. In this article, all of the above is the introduction beginning with the question “Are you having trouble with blogging?”


Your key points become your headings. I suggest an absolute minimum of three key points. They should also be in bold type.


Your conclusion is a summary of your article and anything else you wish to state that is directly related to your topic.

Resource Box

You can also include a resource box with your picture, a bit of information about yourself, and a link to your site or products.

In summary, you now have a template that you can use for every blog post. You can save it in outline form and use it over and over.

It contains a title, introduction, several key points related to your subject, and a conclusion.

Now you can get busy using this template of blogging tips to make your writing easier.
