A domain with your own site allows you the flexibility of adding more affiliate links and of specialising in certain products that might not otherwise be available. So what is your choice.

Before You Start a Business
You will need an autoresponder
One of the most clever tools on the Internet is the autoresponder. That is a must for any marketer. The one I use is AWeber because it is renowned as the best and most reliable on the Internet. Sure, there are probably cheaper programs that promise more nut beware. Many only stay in business a short time and if you have your lists registered with them you risk losing all your contact. It simply is not worth the hassle.
Get with the best from the word go and you will not regret it. I have been with a few and for the ease of operation, reliability and performance this is the one that I recommend, along with most affiliate marketers that I know.

What is a Niche Market?
It is an area where you think you can excel over your competition.
It usually relates to something you are interested in, you use yourself and can give it a great wrap, or you see a need that is not currently being met.
What is a Lens
It is a viewpoint, an opinion or a story about something you want to sell or to pass on some knowledge or ideas. It is anything you want except a blog.
On Squidoo we like to dress lenses up with nice pictures and interesting snippets of information unlike a blog which is a single page of story only. On a blog you add to the bottom and get comment back. Lenses have comment boxes but not in the same way. You can add to lenses by building more of them.

Put Adsense Ads on Site and Make Money - Google pays you for clicks from your site
Many are making good money from Google by advertising these ads. The downside is that people click over from you site to the one they have been induced to click over to. But if you don't mind that then get in on this trend.
Great Alternative to Google Adsense - Forget Adsense
It doesn't matter how careful you are the chances are that you will get banned from Adsense and any ads you have on your site are instantly removed. This has happened to me for no reason, and they will never tell you anyway, and to hundreds of others that I know in forums and elsewhere.
Don't play around with the devil. Try this on on for size and see how it fits.
