    I have had a few interesting things happen to me when it comes to these MNS I bought from Sterday on here. Was wondering if I could ask some of the members here that have MNS if they have had the same thing happen to them and if there is any way I could monetize what happened to me lol. As most of us know these are brand name domain names.

    On one case, I had a customer, a true and real customer ask me if I had parts for their dryer lol. It wasn't spam. It was a real person looking for help. I turned them away because I was not really sure what in the hell to say to them.

    Today I received an email from a company that sells appliances and also repairs them. I received an email from their billing department asking me for a price list. Obviously I do not have one since all these are is.. well, blogs. Well, MNS to be exact.

    One of the things I wanted to do was join a site like CJ or the like and join networks like Home Depot and a few others and advertise their affiliate stuff on my website - which would probably make me a little bit of money. But, do you think I could make money with this another way?

    Wow, that's unexpected but not unwelcome I guess? Not experienced that yet as I don't tend to deal with physical products but I'd probably be unsure how to react to those queries either. What style is your MNS? Is it promoting amazon products? Without knowing what set-up you have on your site it's not easy to provide detailed advice but you could explore expanding in to an ecommerce store or setting up a drop-shipping service for dryers and similar electrical goods in your niche?

    I did Adsense on it. But, of course got banned. So I have adbrite up there now. I was thinking maybe I could combine another idea on here - selling ad space on the site. Actually that is what I pitched to the second person - the company.

    I have had success with this method on other sites, but they were blogs and or business websites I have - which made them a little more professional as far as design went.

    Here are 4 appliance parts affiliate programs. Here is an option:

    open a paypal account and get the debit card. ( or a prepaid card and attach the online bank account to paypal) when someone requests a specific part, find it, then send a message telling them what you will charge for it. If they buy, send them an invoice through paypal, and the money will go straight into your paypal account. As soon as it clears, you buy the part with the debit card keeping the profit, and have it sent to your customer. This is easily outsourced. You supplier may agree to blank out the sender and send you an electronic invoice so your customer will not know where it came from. I wouldn't make this a deal breaker though.

    Try for a 25 % to 30% profit, and if they squawk, tell them that you understand that your pricing may not be suitable for them, and if they were looking for a discount distributor, you are happy to recommend your affiliate vendors.

    They may choose to buy or use your distributor.

    Or you can automatically refer them to your vendors with an autoresponder after an email submit (remember that sinnce you do not stock that particular part, these are your "recommended distributors" for their area based on their IP address), and have a disclaimer in the footer of the page disclosing the affiliate relationship. If you want to increase sales, send the link to the actual part page instead of a general link.

    Searching for "appliance parts affiliate program" in Google I found these:

    These are not my affiliate links, just Google results.

    So, are you saying to buy X parts from these 4 affiliate sites you listed )or whatever other ones I find), or are you saying to JUST use affiliate sites as a way to "give away" my so-called "distributors". Just want to make sure I understand what you are saying.

    I wonder if I could also do some sort of an Amazon storefront type of deal for JUST appliance parts. I did this once on a cooking site of mine for cookbooks. I don't know if Amazon has a storefront for appliances.

    Do you not understand that those links are appliance parts affiliate programs like you are asking for, they are just not amazon and CJ?

    I also do not understand what you mean by:

    are you saying to JUST use affiliate sites as a way to "give away" my so-called "distributors".

    If you sign up with one of the parts suppliers, you will become one of their distributors, just like if you sign up with amazon and become their affiliate.

    You will be passing a link to your customer that will give you commissions on what they buy. Just like if you gave them a link to Amazon.

    I do not understand the "give away" or "so-called" reference. Please restate that question, I am sorry I do not know what you are asking.
