You want to build a business that you can call your own, but you can’t imagine abandoning the security of your day job. You are confident that you can find a few hours a week to pursue your dreams of creating a business on the internet, but you don’t know where to start. You’re looking for a plan.

In this episode, episode 3 of the Mason World Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast, we’re going to be talking about our next way to make money online. You’ll recall that we’ve been using two reference resources. We’ve got the Yanik Silver book, which you can find at MasonWorld.com/silver.
We’ve got the Jimmy Brown report on 10 Ways to Make 10,000 Dollars a Month Online, and that’s at MasonWorld.com/10ways. Both of those are information products. What’s interesting about information products is that’s the method for making money online that we’ll be discussing here in episode 3.
Now, this method of selling information products online, interestingly, goes hand in hand with the method that we talked about last week, which was affiliate marketing. You’ll recall last week we talked about affiliate marketing as a way that you take internet traffic, however you can get it, either through organic search or pay per click, or from your website, or wherever, and you drive it to a product.
The clicks that come from your website are tracked in such a way that if someone you send to a product buys that product, you get a commission. It’s basically commission sales. One of the best things to do affiliate marketing with and to get commissions on the internet are information products. They’re really fantastic.
They satisfy the need that people have for instant gratification. Usually that works in the following way. Someone needs information about a topic, so they go to Google, they search for information on that topic, and they hit a sales page for information product.
