    Does anybody have experience promoting a hosting aff program such as hostg@tor to work from home traffic?

    For example promoting a free course that teaches how to create your own website, promote it and get it ranked in G00gle. Then in the course you promote the hosting aff program as your main revenue generator.

    If anybody knows of a PLR product that does the above, please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Can't say I've seen any PLR products but for something so specific I think you would do better creating your own product, you would have total control then and at least you know your visitors will be gaining from the information which will give them more belief that they can make money from it and will probably result in more sign ups.

    It's a good idea, but tough search competition in the "work from home" niche.

    That's not to say you couldn't make money from it.

    Personally, I would offer the visitors an e-course. that way you can keep their e-mails for up-sells later on.

    There was a guy that build a forum where you have to pay to register, was only 7 dollars, but inside there are many tutorials, actualy very very good tutorials too on how to set up wordpess blog and then resell, was few years ago and the main place to where sell this blog was ebay at that time, anyway in this way you get the super nobs, just beginning and most they dont have a proper hosting account.

    I am sure this guy made and his making a lot of money, plus automatically u build a list and I still get emails from him, selling affiliate stuff, or promoting sites that he flos on flippa.

    This is a really good idea. I would personally suggest charging at least a small fee for the course, because I find people looking for free stuff rarely want to spend the extra dollar on anything. Or at least that was my experience trying the Free website hostgator method. I had 0 conversions when I tried giving it away free haha.

    This would definitely work offline though, my buddy does a similar course an hour or two a week and makes about an extra 1000 - 1400 a month.

    Anything that is...
    • Relevant
    • Targeted (part of relevance)
    • Genuinely useful
    • and High-quality (HG is pretty good in my opinion)...

    ...will make you money on the back-end. If people perceive you as giving them value, they'll pay you. If you actually deliver value, you turn them into a lifelong customer and "friend" to some extent. The money is in the relationship and in the value you provide to the other person.

    You can use free coupon codes and tell them about the AdWords voucher. I've done some stuff with that and it worked out pretty well.
