Super Affiliate Handbook

What you need to figure out is whether there is a market for your product. And where markets are concerned, there is no place like the Internet.

Take a look at some of the results from a research report by eTForecasts:

• The number of Internet users surpassed 530 million in 2001 and will continue to grow strongly in the next five years.

• By the end of 2005 the number of worldwide Internet users will double to 1.12 BILLION people. That is one HUGE marketplace and it's getting bigger every day!

• Online sales amounted to twenty billion dollars in each of the first two quarters of 2002.

• In 2002, online sales grew 52% over 2001 to $78 billion.

• The Online Publishers Associate reported consumer spending on online content in the US totaled USD1.3 billion in 2002, marking an increase of 95 percent compared with 2001. The Personals/Dating category surpassed both Business/Investments and Entertainment/Lifestyles to become the largest paid content category in 2002 with USD302 million in revenues, up from USD72 million in 2001.

• eCommerce sales in Q1 2003 reached $24 billion, a 20% jump over Q1 2002 sales of $20 billion - despite the shaky retail climate.

• Forrester research predicts 2003 sales to grow by at least 25% over 2002.

Although 'most' people are still hesitant to give their credit card numbers online, as Internet shopping becomes commonplace, more and more people will be clicking 'Buy it Now!' buttons.

Forrester research predicts online sales to stay strong in 2003 because 6.8 million US households will shop online for the first time this year and free shipping offers percentage-off deals will keep motivating consumers to buy from online merchants.

The reality is that anyone with a product that is marketable online should start an Internet business...today!

Myth #6: The BIG Money Talk is JUST HYPE Hype? Sure, there's plenty of hype out there!

I look at it this way, though. Wherever there's hype, there's an element of truth. You just need to uncover the truth behind the incredible claims, and get to work digging it up.

'Big money' is entirely possible. These are a few of my deposit amounts to just ONE of my US dollar business accounts.

2001 - December

2002 - January 2002 - February 2002 - March 2002 - April

$34,414.79 $56,719.56 $35,045.09 $34,924.18 $29,527.96

If you are willing to take the necessary action to make 'big money' happen for you - it will. Or you can criticize and be skeptical and sure that 'big money' can't happen for you - and it won't.

To summarize, while the 'Net is rife with many mythical tales of fame and fortune, the truth of the matter is that the stories aren't that far-fetched. Inject just a little common sense into the equation and you might see an opportunity to find your pot of gold.
