Ended up going to the A4D meet up in San Diego, CA and it was a success! Met up with a lot of good friends and made a ton of new ones. Definitely was great spending some time relaxing and enjoying the weather on the balcony of the Hard Rock Hotel.
Freelance writing has two forms, print (magazines and newspapers) and web content (web based). There are a number of ways through which a freelance writer can earn a steady source of income. You can work as research writers, essay writers, story and drama writers, copy writers, bloggers, eBook writers, magazine writers, catalogue material writers, content writers, advertising copy writers, corporate copy writers, grant writing (for nonprofit organizations), essay writers, resume writers are just to name a few. However, all these above listed freelance writing jobs may fit in one way or another under any of the below mentioned broad categories.
Of course, you will also have to set up a Google AdWords account, where you can set your daily budget as well as the maximum CPC you are willing to pay for each keyword. Once your daily budget has been met, Google will simply stop showing your ad for the remainder of the day.
This is why there are many who advocate that it is better to set a lower CPC rather than lowering your budget because it’s better to be shown on the eighth position of the list for the whole day rather than the second position for part of the day. There are also some statistics that show ads in lower positions tend to generate more sales and convert better.
Traffic exchanges are one of the most misunderstood traffic sources out there. A lot of people will tell you that they don’t work and that they provide worthless untargeted traffic. Nothing could be further from the truth, but as with other methods you have to make them work for you, by using them the right way. First off all we know exactly why people are using traffic exchanges.
They want to make money online, they want free traffic, and they are likely using that traffic to promote a “make money program” of some sort. As you can see the traffic is very targeted if we provide what people want e.g. “how to make money online”, “how to get tons of free traffic”, “how to recruit more people to their biz opp” or any combination of these 3.
Contrary to what many people think, building any site on what you like and your interests is not a very good idea. It’s not going to be very profitable. I still can’t figure out why people want to build niche sites based on personal interests. I guess it could get me started with learning Internet basics, but it wasn’t going to build a cash flow. I found out very quickly that there were more profitable markets to build my sites around. Make sure you provide the niche that people want.
Don’t create a product then find the niche, you need to do the opposite, find the niche then supply the product. You need to remember that just because a certain phrase pays well, doesn’t mean you will get a good search engine ranking for it, or that people will be attracted to your page. Should you go after high paying phrases regardless of topic? Just remember not to jump on the phrase bandwagon unless it’s related to your website. Also, make sure it’s something you have a passion for.
Email has taken the world over. Individuals and people are utilizing email on a daily basis and most prefer it over postal mail. This is for a few obvious reasons such as it’s free and you don’t have to pay postage, it’s much more reliable than the post office and there are several services that allow you to send even the largest files much more quickly. Most servers are able to send emails in less than 5 seconds. Because of the flexibility of email, you can see why people are using it on a daily basis whether it is their personal email or work email.
Marketing promotions are utilizing email as well. You can send newsletters, promotions and a variety of other informational products. So, you may be wondering, how exactly you come up with all these names and email addresses. That’s where the opt-in list comes in.
An opt-in list is essentially a list of emails that you can send your marketing materials to. Now, getting a whole bunch of emails is easy, but you also want to be able to target your marketing to the right group. You wouldn’t want to send cosmetic coupons to a bunch of men and you wouldn’t want to send tool coupons to a bunch of women. A good list will also provide you with a profile of the email address owner so that you can easily target your promotions to your target audience.
This is number one for a good reason. It is the easiest, and cheapest way to earn money. However, you will have a considerable wait time before you see your profits in earnest. Meaning, when you use this money making idea, as an affiliate, you will have to wait anywhere from 7 to 60 days before receiving your commissions. What is involved here is to become an affiliate, or promoter, of an already existing product(s) and earn commissions from your work as the affiliate/promoter. The simplest way to do this is to write up a product review about a particular item, include a link, this would be your specific affiliate link, forwarding your potential customers to purchase this product, and earn your commission payments.
Last month I was busy working on a huge new site along with a forum to go along with it. It’s called WhiteHatUniversity.com and will teach people and marketers the benefits of using whitehat tactics and actually some proper SEO for their business. I know all the hype is for blackhat tactics since they are much faster and you can see a bigger result a bit quicker, but we cannot forget the basics and that is what the aim of the site is to teach. Most marketers don’t know a thing about proper SEO basics and how to properly whitehat promote a site to the top. Also remember that once you get a site to the top using whitehat methods, it says up there and doesn’t budge unlike the blackhat methods that are taught now a days to noobs!
Once your money magnet is up and running, the cash will start to flow regularly with new prospects generating new sales. This then allows you to generate new money magnets. When done right, theresults are practically endless with your chances to make a massive chunk of profit growing after every new site. As you’ll see from my gloriously crafted flow chart above, this isn’t a dead-end process.
You don’t contact a buyer, make a sale and then be done with it. Once you get someone in your sales funnel, they become more valuable than any one sale…
In my experience, many affiliates take an extremely narrow view of their business, and focus all their efforts on selling a very limited number of products into an equally limited number of markets. For example, the vast majority of people who decide to sell digital products as affiliates will only utilize the services of sites like Clickbank and PayDotCom, without looking any further for other opportunities. This is not only narrow-minded, but it also inevitably limits the earning power of such affiliates, whilst ensuring that they are always working at 110% of capacity…
Making money online has been harder and harder. If you happen to me one of the thousands of people that search for the term “make money online” than you probably have clicked on Carl Ocab’s blog since he is famous for ranking very high for this famous term.
Many people wonder if his story is true, since he happened to get really high search rankings almost over night, and no one really knows the truth of how he did this. Now he had some interviews with a few popular bloggers, and what he said was the secret ingredient of ranking this high, is modifying his header and posts…
