Save Yourself Hours of Time in One Easy Step

If you have spent any time at all working at marketing on the web, you will have a long list of affiliate programs and membership sites that you have joined. You may also have a long list if websites that you run. Believe me, if you don't yet, you soon will. Other lists that you may have are search engines or article repositories that you work with.

How many times have you had to search through your old emails trying to find your access code for one of those programs or websites? If you are like me, the answer is way too many times!

Well, here is an easy solution. And it is one that probably came with your computer. Remember that free office suite that was advertised on the box? It probably had a spreadsheet as part of it. Now is the time to take it out and do a test drive.

What you want to do is make a separate spreadsheet for each of those categories that I mentioned earlier. Start out by making one for the affiliate programs that you have joined. Label the top left cell 'Affiliate Name'. Now you have a choice. In my spreadsheet program, I can right click on that cell and add a hyperlink. If you can do that, I recommend that you make a hyperlink to the place you can look at your stats. If you can't do that with your program name the next column 'stats'.

Now go over to the next column and label it 'affiliate link'. Finally you will want two more columns labeled 'username' and 'password'. You may not need these with all of your affiliate programs, but it sure is a hassle to need them and not have them.

Now just fill in the rows with the information that you already have. And when you join a new affiliate, be sure to paste the information in your spreadsheet.

This will help you in several ways. First, it is easy to look down the list of affiliates and think of new ways of working on marketing them. Maybe you will want to put two or three of them together and market them all on one page. Then tell your customers that if they join all three you will throw in a fourth package that you have resell rights for.

Second, you can easily either click on a link or cut and paste an address into your web browser to see how you are doing. And you have your username and password right there to cut and paste as well.

Finally, you have an easy way to backup all that information by printing out a copy - and electronic backup.

Now do the same with your other categories of projects. Those membership sites, websites and other information that you need to repeatedly refer to. You will be saving yourself large chunks of time that you could be using to make more money or play with the grandkids.
