How I’m Doing Affiliate Marketing

I Purchased An Affiliate Marketing Kit Thingy

So, I purchased an Affiliate Marketing Kit. This kit is called 1 2 3 One Hour Affiliate.  Anyway, it is pretty interesting. The instructions state to create a blogger site that you connect to Amazon using your Amazon affiliate account and create a targeted gift site that targets a specific group such as teens, or knitters or hunters.  I’m giving it a try and so far I have created a blogger site called GiftStoreForTeens.blogspot.com. I’m hoping it will get some traffic and I will have it built up by the time people start shopping this year.  I’ll be sharing the results of this experiment. I really want to find out if it works and if it does then I’ll report it here. I don’t have much to say so keep an eye on this space if you want to know… Read More

How can I help you?

Since day one that I started Work at Home Boomer, my challenge has been trying to figure out how to help you. Today, right now, the writing of this post I actually don’t know if I have any readers. I could look at the google webmaster reports and see if I have any unique visitors but there is a part of me that I think I would just be discouraged.  So I have decided to just keep writing and building and coming up with more content and trying to offer value to anyone that comes across this blog. If they like it I have to trust that they well return.  I am determined to figure this out and I don’t have a lot of money to pay for many of the affiliate marketing coarse that I see offered online. Some… Read More

Try Try Try Try Try Again!

Work at Home Boomer has languished as I have tried to find myself again. I am a woman with a background in technology. I can walk circles around most people when it comes to computers. I have a background as a Programmer Analyst, System Administrator, Program designer, Technical support engineer, Operations engineer, network engineer. Basically, I have done about anything you can do in computers. Which sounds great but, and here is the but, I can’t know every computer language out there. So even though I can program, the language that I know doesn’t apply to many of todays computer needs. Yes, I can administer computers and I know networking but at this time in my life I am over 50 and in the corporate world I tend to be treated like the older lady that doesn’t know anything. Many… Read More

Online Again

Many many months have gone by without any posts to this website. At one time I found that the website had become so slow and unusable that I couldn’t even post because of my neglect. I finally have gotten around to posting once again but in order to do so I had to completely rebuild the site and start again from scratch. I copied every post and page I had created to make a kind of backup and then I just deleted the whole thing. Anyway, after much work and time I again have a site that I can post to again. I just want to bring you up to speed on what has happened over the past year. About March 2014 my daughter got laid off from her job. At one time we had imagined what it would be… Read More

Content is King

We have all heard the saying, “content is king” but has anyone ever really taken a good hard look at the content on the internet? In this article I decided to do my own study of internet content. My hope if to provide you with my findings. In my personal experience when I want to learn something fast I usually go looking for video content. When I want to learn something leisurely I look for audio content that I can listen to in my car while driving about in daily activities. When I am looking for step by step or troubleshooting a problem I look for written content. Since Pinterest has become a big player on the internet we now have infographics which also provide information content and not just a bunch of pretty pictures. So when it comes to… Read More

First Things First, what is WordPress and do I want to use it.txt

When I first started entertaining the idea of starting a website/blog about building an online business. There were areas in my knowledge that were gray. My expertise is in computers but not in the world-wide web systems. Whether you are computer literate or not, you don’t know what you don’t know. Are you willing and able to learn? So as I learn you can learn also and we can make this work together. In the past I had heard a lot about WordPress. I knew WordPress was a blog site where you can create a blog for free. What I did not know, was that WordPress is a complete CMS (Content Management System). Wikipedia defines CMS as the following: A content management system (CMS) is a computer program that allows publishing, editing and modifying content as well as maintenance from a central interface.… Read More

How I Decided What My Niche was going to be

The very first decision any affiliate marketing business owner must do is, decide on a niche.  Choosing a niche, can be a challenge but there are some simple rules and techniques that can help with making a final decision.

Do you truly enjoy the topic?   Second, is to consider if the niche may become obsolete over time or do you want to find a niche that is timeless. An example of a niche that could… Read More

  Today, I am now working to tackle SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Wikipedia defines SEO as, Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a serch engines’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic”) search results.
