Profit From What You Know
1. Build your business around something you are passionate about or know well and has a lot of profit potential. This way you can enjoy your work. If you find a product you want to promote, but do not know a lot about the subject, go to Amazon or Clickbank and purchase a book. Read about it so you have a basic knowledge about the subject. You will also have better success when promoting a digital product or ebook if you are familiar with the product you are promoting. It will be much easier to do a review on a product you are familiar with.
