Epacket Shipping – The Best Option for Ecommerce Dropshipping 3

The chances are that you’re reading this because you run – or intend to run – a dropshipping e-commerce business. But you have the perennial problem that dogs the start-up or small business and that is effective shipping to your customers. After all, you aren’t Jeff Bezos with an Amazon-level of infrastructure and their famous unlimited two-day delivery service. As a dropshipper you are relying on your products being dispatched from – say China – to your customers here in the States. Okay, so shipping times are going to be an issue but don’t forget the shipping costs either. Against Amazon Prime’s free delivery for any item your rates with AliExpress, FedEx and DHL are going to make your eyes water. Your usual option of offering free shipping is to either absorb the cost yourself or to add the cost on to the price of your goods. This has downsides of course – absorbing the cost hurts your profit margins, and adding the cost to your product makes you look uncompetitive.

Guide to Content Automation

image001

Put simply, content automation is a method of generating great copy for your webpage based not on the work of a writer but that of a machine. When machines take jobs from humans it can be depressing; the end of an era, the loss of a livelihood and the termination of a career path many decades old. Whether it’s Otto’s self driving lorries that signal the death knell of the trucker or Blackstone Discovery’s analytical software that sifts through thousands of legal documents far quicker than any lawyer, we all fear for our jobs. Even the humble content writer composing an article like this is not immune.

The Affiliates Guide To Cookies

A guide to understanding affiliate cookies, how they work and how you can make money from using them. Note: Affilite cookie stuffing is illegal and WILL get you arrested.

The Affiliates Guide To Cookies 24Whether you are an affiliate or an affiliate hopeful, you’ve most likely heard about cookies. After visiting a website, a cookie is sometimes stored on a visitor’s computer to track information about the visitor. In affiliate marketing, this is how affiliate programs track visitors who click on affiliate links. The success of clicks on these links depends upon ad copy, image placement, and also cookie length. Some people, however, have learned to abuse cookies with cookie stuffing, like with the case of Shawn Hogan who used this blackhat method to make over a million dollars a month.

Let’s break down the basics of cookies and how they apply to you as affiliate marketers.

What’s Stored in Cookies?

A multitude of information can be stored in a visitor’s cookies such as his or her IP address, visit duration, date and time of visit, your affiliate ID, and even your website name. This is the information that affiliate programs use in their analytics to help you and their companies track clicks, conversions, and calculate overall return on investment (ROI) of your affiliate marketing campaigns.

How Do These Cookies Work?

Let’s say you have a review site for the Amazon Associates program, and someone visits your site and clicks an affiliate link. A cookie will be dropped on their computer to keep track of whether they make a purchase or not through your affiliate link. If a sale is made through this link of yours, then Amazon will award you with a commission.
