As in the case of some top affiliate marketers this extra income might even transform into thousands of dollars. Affiliate program is one of the most effective methods of producing sales second only to direct mail. According to Forrester Research, a marketing research company, in this year 21% of all online sales will be generated from affiliate sites promoting affiliate products. If you do your homework right, you too can earn handsomely from the correct use of affiliate programs. What is an affiliate program? The concept of affiliate program is based on the age old business practice of referral service. This is quite common in many industries. An attorney, for example, gets a certain percent of commission if he refers a client to another lawyer. The Amazon Affiliate Program became so successful that it prompted others to follow the suit. Today, affiliate programs became ubiquitous on the Internet making them one of the primary methods of online marketing of products and services. Affiliate Program can be defined as Internet marketing system where a company allows and helps third party websites, called affiliates to post link and refer clients in return for a predetermined flat fee or percentage based commission. Benefits of affiliate programs Affiliate Programs became so popular because as a partnership it TMs a win win situation for both the program owner and the affiliates. Benefits for program owners include:The primary reason for most of the companies to adopt an affiliate program is the possibility of boosting sales. Many websites receive major portion of their visitors from their affiliate links. To find suitable websites with required content in order to run a banner or link campaign is time consuming and require large resources; affiliate programs in comparison can resolve this issue often with a far smaller investment Increase search engine ranking Search engines, Google in particular, calculate link popularity as one of the main factors in their ranking algorithm. No doubt, omnipresent visibility of their logo on the affiliate sites definitely had a huge impact on the brand recognition of the Amazon. Offline companies had to spend billions of dollars of advertisement money to get similar results! How about the affiliates? What are the benefits they get from an affiliate relationship? No product or service to carry Online business with your own product or service might be rewarding, but it requires substantial investment from your part. With carefully chosen affiliate programs you can have your online business without the requirement of having your own products. The investment is low as all you need is a website. No need to have a merchant account Since you don TMt carry your own products or services you do not have to go through the hassle of having a merchant account to cater your clients. Your affiliate program owner will do everything. All you have to do is supply clients through your designated link. Possibility of residual income Many programs pay you a commission from the sales made to the customers generated from affiliates, who have signed up as an affiliate following your link. This kind of affiliate system is called 2 tier system. Visitor tracking system allows affiliate programs to pay you a commission when same visitor from your website makes repeat purchase.

Money can be made betting with or against the crowd, so measuring the mood of the masses online can be just as valuable as tracking price to earnings ratios, corporate profits and interest rates. The new trend on Wall Street for deciphering if the populace and investing public is in a positive or negative state of mind is computer driven text analysis of the millions of real time tweets and posts that flood social networking sites.Online surveillance of social networking sites is emerging as a must have tool for hedge funds, big banks, high frequency traders and black box investment firms that run money via computer programs. The goal: to gather market intelligence from previously untapped sources.This emerging tool works something like this: Are you feeling glum, fearful or anxious today? Or are you in a calm, happy, optimistic mood? If you share your state of mind with the digital world via a tweet on Twitter or a soul baring post on Facebook, Wall Street probably knows how you and millions of other people are feeling, too, thanks to its growing use of linguistic analysis of online posts. This incoming psychological snapshot of the Twitterati, digerati and average Joe could prompt a computer program interpreting the data at a hedge fund to place a trade without human intervention in an attempt to profit from the information.The conversation tying tweets and social media and stocks together has gotten louder ever since last fall, when an academic study at Indiana University in Bloomington found a correlation between the collective mood of millions of people identified by tweets and the direction of the Dow Jones industrial average. "If you would have told anyone 10 years ago that this data would be available, they would have called it science fiction. We know that emotions play a significant role in markets," he says. Analyzing millions of tweets is akin to a "large scale emotional thermometer for society as a whole."Derwent Capital Markets, a London based hedge fund, was so taken with Bollen's findings that it will soon launch a fund based on the methodology in his paper.Interest in the marriage of social media and finance remains high. candidate at Pace University showed a positive correlation between stock price performance and the social media "popularity" of well known brands Starbucks, Coca Cola and Nike.A lot of noisePopular Mechanics cites this type of digital surveillance, which it dubs complex event processing, as one of the "10 Tech Concepts You Need to Know for 2011." The magazine notes that there is a lot of noise in the data rich digital world, which makes it harder to unearth relevant information. But it stresses that "a new generation of software" is shifting the focus from "data," or a record of what's happened, to "events," or "what's happening right now."Measuring investor sentiment has long been used by financiers as a tool to divine the future direction of stocks. But traditional tools are decidedly low tech and less timely, such as the weekly polling of individual investors and financial newsletter editors to see how many are bullish and how many are bearish.The skyrocketing use of chatty and highly trafficked sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube has created a fresh, massive and useful warehouse of new data. Sophisticated investors view the mining of digital chatter via machines as a way to gain an edge.Information gleaned from social networking sites is dubbed unstructured data,or more qualitative stuff not generally interpreted by computers for the purpose of making decisions, such as buy and sell orders, explains Adam Honore, research director for Aite Group's capital markets group. Other types of unstructured data include traditional news, Internet content and regulatory filings. These data are often less scrutinized by Wall Street and, thus, more valuable to traders who do analyze it. Quantitative market data, such as prices of trades executed at exchanges or the first quarter GDP number, are considered structured data.In recent years the percentage of market participants incorporating unstructured data into their trading models has jumped to 35% from 2% in late 2008, Aite Group data show. It's all part of the technological arms race underway in global markets."We're talking about competitive advantage," says Honore. "It's all about the machine. The smallest advantage can mean substantial returns on investment."Still, Honore says sentiment information extracted from social media sites is more useful as a complementary data point rather than the basis of an entire investment strategy. "You can use it for some trading decision support," he says. "But would I run a whole strategy off of it? No.""This is just the tip of the iceberg," says Eric Davidson, vice president at Titan Trading Analytics, a behavioral finance research firm that recently incorporated social media data into its trading strategies. "But it's too early to build strategies solely off of social media. I don't think anyone has nailed this concept yet."Analyzing text in search of sentiment clues is not new on Wall Street. In recent years, traders have been using computer algorithms to speed read news. There are a handful of machine readable news services that use computers to analyze news content. The services parse the meaning of language and convert sentiment readings about individual companies or the broad market into numeric data that computers can crunch and base investment decisions on.A real time news analytics service offered by Thomson Reuters "measures how positive, neutral or negative a news article is with respect to given companies," says Rich Brown, global business manager for machine readable news at Thomson Reuters.When it comes to getting clear trading signals, however, Brown believes acquiring accurate sentiment readings is easier using traditional news gathered and disseminated in complete sentences by professional journalists than it is from the quirky, abbreviated language used in the "noisy" world of social media.But the noisy part of the tweet world can be a plus, says Paul Tetlock, a finance professor at Columbia University whose research has been incorporated into text algorithms used by machine readable news services."It cuts both ways," says Tetlock. "On the one hand, the person writing a tweet may not be thinking very carefully. So the information from the tweet might be noisy. But, on the other hand, social media doesn't filter out rumor and other speculation that might be informative to investors."An 87% accuracy rateBollen's paper disputes the notion that measuring millions of 140 characters or less tweets cannot generate winning stock trades. In the paper titled "Twitter mood predicts the stock market," Bollen asked: Can societies experience mood states that affect their collective decision making? If so, can the public mood predict stock prices?To answer those questions, Bollen analyzed the text of daily Twitter feeds (9.6 million in total) over a nine month period in 2008 with two mood tracking tools. One simply measures whether the daily tweets were positive or negative. The other tool sought to measure human mood states by categorizing tweets under six terms equated with different mood types: calm, alert, sure, vital, kind and happy.The paper claims an 87% accuracy rate in using Twitter mood measurements to predict Dow stock prices three to four days later.What makes the findings powerful to investors is Twitter's predictive ability. Twitter's real time stream of data alerts traders to mood swings before others might notice it."If 100 million people are getting nervous, it could affect the market" and trigger, say, a sell trade to profit from the information, says Bollen.Adds Jeff Catlin, CEO of Lexalytics, a text analysis firm that also monitors social media, "Because Twitter tweets are such an early stream of information, if you can measure it well, then you have an earlier signal. You can make an investment decision . before it is even published in the mainstream media." Air Jordan 11 Low IE White Metallic Silver Black,Want to skateboard? Choose Nike SB! That is cool. Skateboard game in TV show is my favorite. For they seem to be very cool, dangerous and difficult. Playing skateboard with Nike SB shoes on my feet is my dream. Then I got a skateboard and a pair of Nike SB shoes which are the most popular ones for the time being. According to the ads, the Nike SB shoes should be rather comfortable, but when I wear my Nike SB shoes, I don't have the same feeling. This makes me very annoyed. By my friend's words, I bought a pair of counterfeits. How terrible it is! I paid 1oo dollars for them. That money could have bought a pair of genuine Nike SB Dunks. In order to make judge the genuineness of them, I get some information on internet. The first thing is to examine the box of the Nike SB Dunks. As to the first and second series of Nike SB Dunks; they are endowed with an orange box. Shoes of the third series are equipped with a silver box together with a green label. Except the above situation, the boxes can also have the following matches, say, if the box comes in sliver, then the label should be in orange, if the box is in pink, then the label, orange or black, and if the box is in black or purple, then the label is required to be in black. If the boxes of the Nike SB Dunks don't come in the above situations, then these shoes may be counterfeits. Then you can remove the shoes from the box. Normally, there should be a clear plastic bag in which the shoes are put in. The bag is resalable, and in it, you can find spare laces for the Nike SB Dunks. The bag for the genuine Nike SB Dunks should be 7.5 cm wide and 13.5 cm high. Then examine the spare laces inside the bag. These authentic spare laces should come in different colors from those on the Nike SB Dunks. After checking the laces, you are required to examine and feel the tongue of Nike SB Dunks. If the Nike SB Dunks are authentic, then their tongues should be thick, and they should come in curved "V" or "U" shape. But as to the counterfeits, their tongues are flat as well as square. The fifth step is to check the "NIKE" inlaid in the back of the shoes. If the shoes are authentic, these letters are required to be thick instead of thin. Last, turn the shoes over, and check the soles. If the shoes are authentic, there should be "NIKE" and the trademark "swoosh" on their soles. As to Nike SB Dunks, they are not exactly the same with Nike Dunks. You should bear this in mind. Don't believe the seller who tells you that general Nike Dunks are also Nike SB Dunks. Their only purpose is to make money.
