How Can I Monetize My Website ? #top10ways

1. Banner Ads: Banner ads are the rectangular or square ads you see displayed on almost every website you have ever visited. They normally entail adding embedded coding to your website for the ad to display properly. The great thing about banner ads is that they don’t interrupt the content on your page. They are off to the side and normally conform with the content on your page. There’s nothing like having a website on fashion and beauty and having matching banner ads displaying promotions for Mac, Ulta or Sephora.

2. Text Ads: A text ad is contextual advertising. A specific keyword or keywords are matched with an ad relating to that keyword. Text ads are a great way to introduce products to readers. One thing to take note on about text ads is that many times an ad will appear in the middle of a sentence, which can defer some people from finishing the article and clicking on the ad. So be sure your content is worth staying on the page for and the ad is worth returning to to click

3. Affiliate Programs: Join an Affiliate Program. Working as an affiliate for a company allows you to make a commission on sales your generate from your website. You can join affiliate networks, that serve as a central hub for many companies looking to pay individual commissions for sale made on their site or you can join a specific affiliate program, that pays your a certain amount of commissions based upon the products you sale.

4. Sponsorship: Most sponsorships go to the website with the highest traffic. If your a small website start off with local sponsors asking them to donate what they can to your site. Think of creative ways to promote your sponsor. Product review, blog post promotion or maybe a free give away.

5. Sell Ad Space: Its your website ! Monetize it by selling the free space you have available on your site. What is your space worth to you ?How Can I monetize my webiste ?

Have individuals pay for a subscription to your exclusive email newsletter that offers different promotional coupons for your site only. Or maybe you have your own personal webinars where you teach individuals to do certain things. You decided.

7. News Letter Marketing: Market to your currently followers. They are following you because they love your content or they find it useful. Include links to products they may also like in your emails. Another term for news letter marketing is Solo Ad marketing.

8. Featured Guest Posts: Do you have people emailing you in regards to guest posting ? Let them know your price. You can charge for links,  posts in general, whether or not its a featured post and more. This is your website so determine what you find valuable enough.

9. Write an eBook: Make an eBook of the content you have available going into further detail. With the new wave of eBooks now being popular and easy to carry around, go ahead and make yourself one.

10. CPM: Cost per Mile. There are some ad networks that pay you for cost per impression. So if you are a high traffic blog try applying for an ad network that pays you on the amount of impressions a certain ad may get.

Content Creation For Your Website

keep-calm-and-create-content

keep-calm-and-create-contentContent creation is one of the hardest things to do for your website/blog. How do you create valuable content that people want to read ? What type of content are you suppose to create ? Who is your audience ?

I hope to tackle a few of your concerns and give you a fresh perspective, and maybe even a little inspiration on what to write about next.

The Concept of Creating Valuable Content that people want to read:

Define your Niche

What type of content do you have to offer? Who would be interested in this content that you are offering? Answering these questions clearly will help you define your niche. It is important to know who you’re speaking to. Understand the language of that niche.

For example, if I create a hip-hop site I’m going to want to be aware of hip slang and vocabulary. On a hip hop site I may be able to get away with using slang terms, where as on a business website I may not. It is important to understand the language of your niche so that you are able to communicate in the most effective way possible. Develop a language your readers can relate to and understand. No use for big fancy words or injecting slang terms throughout your blog post or website if that is not how you would speak normally.  Keep it natural, but still understand your niches language and what exactly your niche is.

Follow your Niche

Keep up with what is going on in your niche. This will help with the type of content you should be providing. To piggyback off the hip hop example, keep up with the latest music out. In the music industry there is always new music being released. Write reviews, post CD release dates, and keep your audience aware of new up and coming artist for example.

Knowing what’s going on in your niche is a great way to inspire content creation for your site. If you learn something new from following your niche, blog about it and tell others, be the go to person for information. If you are the first to tell them, now you are the authority figure for that subject matter. Keep your content fresh and do not duplicate.

Be Active in Your Niche

It is important to be active in your niche. Engage in conversation on your social networking site. Respond to comments made on posts on your blog or website, and on your Facebook page if this is applicable. Being active in your niche makes you personable. Some people know that when they come to your site if they have a question you will respond. If you don’t know the answer No worries, let them know you currently do not have the answer to their question and you will find out the appropriate response as soon as possible. You work for them, not them for you!

WORD Play

Content Creation & Word Play

Is it worth publishing? How is your content different from others? Does your content stand out or is it different from others?

These are question you want to ask yourself when creating content for you niche. There are many ways to deliver content on the web. How do you want your readers to receive it? Video, Audio, or Text, a combination of all three is always great. This gives your followers options.

Once you have decided how you want to deliver the content make it engaging! Dry articles are always hard to read for most people. Try including words that evoke excitement, emotions, tell stories throughout the blog post or website, include pictures, maybe a funny meme.

Types of Content

  • Content that reveals secrets
  • Content that encourages and uplifts you
  • Content that teaches you How To
  • Content that reveals a Personal experience
  • Content that explains products
  • Content that gives a review
  • Content that is a True Story

These are just a few types of content you can create or draw motivation from. Pick the nature of your website/blog post and then free write. When you are done free writing edit and publish !

How To Twitter: Building the perfect Tweet

  • Hashtag Keyword
  • @YourName
  • Link To Page
  • Eye Catching Text

When it comes to twitter having the most interesting tweet is going to get you the click to your link.

For Example: If you notice there are a lot of celebrity accounts whose tweets will read ” I just lost 20lbs bitly.com ” or “He said Yes bitly.com “.

“He Said Yes” was tweeted by a fake Kim Kardashian account, but as you can imagine, with the pregnancy between her and Kanye West stirring in the media tons of fans where interested to see if “he said yes” to a wedding. Out of pure curiosity I clicked the link and of course it took me to a website that had tons of good information but not what I was looking for. The site that it took me to was the top 10 celebrity weddings, which is similar to the information given in the tweet, but not what I “assumed” it would be.

The Importance of Lead Capture

From browsing around on sites and clicking links, I have noticed there is a divide between the new Online marketer and the “experienced” online marketer.

Some like to argue that it is best to send your traffic straight to the offer. While others say you should capture their email.

To see which actually works best I conducted a split test where I sent half of my traffic straight to the offer and the other half to a lead capture page.

Can you guess the results ?

I’ll let you think……

With the split test, I made 0% sales sending them straight to the offer and made sales on 30% of the traffic I sent to the landing page. Why ? I think most people are use to having to put their email in before being shown an offer. Maybe because they know later if they decide they would like to purchase the offer they can return back to the email that is sent once you enter your email address to view the page. Could it possibly be a sense of comfort or exclusivity ?

The Importance of a Lead Capture Page

  1. Collect Emails & Build a List
  2. Market to Emails on the Back End

Collect Emails & Build A List

The importance of list building will be drilled into your head when it comes to marketing on line. The name of the game is traffic and building a list.

List building is important because the list built is your niche marketing. Individuals looking for the content you are providing.

Marketing On the Back End

lead capture, landing page

So they didn’t buy the offer the first time around. No worries.

Now that you have collect their email you are able to send them email messages about the product the initially inquired upon. They may not buy it the first two emails sent but maybe the third one they will take to the product being offered.

Why Do I need a Lead Capture Page ?

Lead Capture Pages or Landing Pages are good for capturing information( namely emails) before an offer is shown.

The page preps the individual for what they are about to be shown.

How Can This Help Me in My Business ?

Lead Capture Pages can help you grow your email list serves and build relationships with individuals through email updates.

Building a relationship with individuals can help you increase sales number and build a healthy trusting relationship between you and the individual.

How Do I get one ?

You can create your own Lead Capture Page through services like Wix or you can pay someone to make one for you.

Where Do the Emails Go ?

The emails are sent to an email capturing service, auto responder, such as GetResponse or Aweber. Once captured you can have preset emails ready to be sent on certain days or you can send them organically when you please. Follow the image to set up your Auto-responder for only $1. Your Welcome !

What Do I Send Them ?

The information you chose to send is going to be dependent upon the information you originally provided them. If the capture page states they are going to receive the latest information on yellow snow bunnies, then you shall provide them with information on that subject matter and nothing else.

Lead Capture pages are one of the most important aspects of list building and building your business online. It is at your discretion to use one, or not. The choice is yours !

Network Marketer Guidelines

So you want to be a Network Marketer . Great !

Welcome to the world !

In the beginning you will be “gung ho” about showing your offer to everyone ! While the excitement is great and should be used to fuel your business, be ready to control it !

The goal of Network Marketing is to build quality ethical long lasting relationships with others. Keep this rule in mind throughout your Network Marketing career and you will do just fine.

Here are a set of Guidelines ALL Network Marketers should follow. It will save you time and keep you from looking like the pushy sales guy or woman !

You Are What You Attract

Questions to ask yourself :

  • What are you attracting ?
  • What type of person are you ?
  • Is the image your giving off the guru of all network marketing experience ?
  • Do you appear to be un-knowledgeable in your offer ?
  • Are you praising someone else expertise ?
  • Are you selling people a dream ?

1. Be conscious of the image you give off to people. People remember first impressions and last impressions. How do you want to be remembered ?

2. Be genuine and honest when it comes to presenting yourself to others. Most will start with the fake it til to make approach (this is the old style of network marketing). I would not advise this approach, but people will do what they wish. If you flaunt like you’ve got it be ready to back it up when the time comes. People like to connect and talk with other people. The more relatable you are to an individual the more likely they will be willing to follow your advice and join your team.

“Do unto others as you wish to be done to you “

Be Ethical !Network Marketer

In network marketing there are a number of opportunities available for anyone to join. The thing about network marketing… it works ! If it didn’t people would’nt be doing it.

1. It behooves you not to talk down on someone else, their product, marketing techniques or tools. That is unprofessional and a serious character flaw. A good leader will uplift, lead by example and support others in their field. Not chastise what it is they are doing. Stay away from leaders who continually talk down to or about others. What they’re saying about others, they’re probably saying about you.

Network marketing is forever changing and it is unfair to say one approach is better than the other. Everyone is different. If you don’t agree with someones approach that is perfectly fine. I am sure there are times when you run into people and you just can’t figure out what it is about them that “erks” you. In that same situation be kind and offer positive words not attacking their approach and just move on. The same thing goes with regard to their products. Don’t say your product is outright better than theirs, this just puts someone in a defensive mindset. If you wish to expose them to your product, lead with personal value, NOT the company or the product. Like I mentioned early People connect with People.

2. Do not Cross Recruit. Many times in Network Marketing you will run into people in the same MLM as you . This is great ! If they ask you for advice tell them to speak with their sponsor, do not try to recruit them into your team. If their is sponsor is unavailable then share FREE networking strategies with them. So many times I run into network marketers who are in the same MLM as I am and then try to sell me their consultation services or discuss how they can benefit me. We are in the same MLM . I am receiving the same information you are receiving from our opportunity. If you would like to mastermind and build a FREE partnership this is perfectly fine, but do not sell me a dream I am already dreaming.

3. Do not Spam ! Spamming is sending your offer to any and everyone you meet “unwantingly ” . If the person does not ask what you are affiliated with do not offer. It is ok to introduce yourself and explain to them what it is you do , but do not immediately send them your links to your offer when marketing online. Find out how your offer can benefit them, lead with personal value and then present the offer. Let them get to know you first as a person and then if this is someone you would like to work with slowly introduce them to your product AFTER you have learned their why and how your product can benefit them. If this is someone you do not think you would like working with move on to the next person. But PLEASE do not send people a link to your offer in your introduction.

Stick With it Til the EndNetwork Marketer

When you first join there are going to be people who tell you to buy this and join that and download this and then talk to this person.

Avoid this !

Unless the product they are offer is only going to help you in your Network Marketing endeavors do not fall for the bait.

Many people get caught up in joining multiple offers and buy products that they do not need. You will loose time and money doing this.

All multi-level-marketing opportunities work ! If they didn’t people would not be promoting .

The grass is greener on the other side ?

NO ! The grass is greener where you water it !

Stick with your opportunity til the end and see it through . Do not give up. All Network Marketing opportunities take time. Remember you are building quality long lasting relationships.

Invest in your opportunity !Network Marketer

If your opportunity cost $25 to join and you want to make $1000 a week , this means you need to be recruiting 40 people a week.

On that same note if you are wanting to make 50k a month on a $25 product good luck ! This means you need to be recruiting 2,000 people a month, or 67 people a day! Unless you are doing paid advertising , this is the only way I see this happening.

Make sure the amount of money you want to make is realistic to the time you have to put forth for your venture and to the product you have to offer !

If your opportunity has a level of products position yourself so you are optimizing your experience and profit.

For Example : If the total cost of the opportunity is $5,000 and you have different levels to buy into do so.

  • Level 1 $25
  • Level 2 $100
  • Level 3 $500
  • Level 4 $1,000
  • Level 5 $3,475

Now lets look at that $1000 a week. If I have purchased only up to Level 4 and you are getting paid on all levels, if I make 1 Level 4 sale a week I have already accomplished my goal.

  • 2 Level 3 sales
  • 10 Level 2 sales
  • 4 Level 1 sales + 4 Level 2 sales + 1 Level 3 Sale
  • 8 Level 1 sales + 3 Level 2 Sales + 1 Level 3 Sale
  • and so on and so forth.

If you have positioned yourself correctly and got all in, dependent on the relationship you have built with your prospects , all you need is one person who is just as smart as you to get all in.

Lets look at the 10K a month , All in. That’s 2,500 a week.

  • 1 All in sale
  • 2 people buying Level 1- Level 4
  • 5 Level 3 sales
  • 8 Level 1 sales + 6 Level 2 + 3 Level 3 sales
  • and so on and so forth

Now of course, most people making the over 10k a month are doing paid advertising, but that’s not to say its not tangible, it will just take time.

The Network Marketer Experience !

The network Marketer Experience is most definitely a fun one. It is a choice and not everyone survives. If you want to be in the top 1-2% making the big bucks online you are going to need to stick with and continually refine your efforts and strategies. Success takes hard work and dedication! If it were easy everyone would be doing it !

If you are new to Network Marketing and looking for an opportunity to open your eyes to the online world I would check this one out !

What is a Ping ?

What is Pinging ?ping

This term is loosely thrown around on the web. As a newbie pinging is a very unfamiliar concept but is one of the most important things you can do for yourself when starting out the web.

Ping : A mechanism blogs use to notify the servers the content on its page has been updated.

How to Ping to Your Benefit

The main purpose of pinging is to let servers know you have written new content and you would like them to spread the knowledge.

This helps search engines find your content. Having multiple servers aware of your new article makes its easier for search engines to find and rank on pages relevant to your post.

There is no real need to go into notification over load and submit your site on multiple websites that offer the service. The top sites that offer this service do this for you. Notification overload, as in submitting your new content on multiple ping sites in a short period of time, can be deemed spamming or “spinging” . Spinging also occurs from spam blogs submitting their “blog post” on ping sites.

Two Great Ping Sites:

Ping, PingomaticPing – O -Matic is a very simple copy, paste, click site.

  1. Enter your Blog Name
  2. Enter your Blog URL
  3. Check the servers you wish to be notified on
  4. Click Ping

Very simple system . No head ache or copy pasting all the time on your end.

Pingler is also very simple however you have to enter a captcha code in order to use there service. They offer more server options and will even email you once all your pings are completed. Takes about 2 minutes max to complete your submission (if that !).

  1. Enter Blog Name
  2. Paste Blog URL
  3. Check the categories related to your blog
  4. Enter Captcha
  5. Click Ping

Once the site has notified all of its serves you can enter your email and they will send you a report.

Another benefit of Pingler is that you can automate your pings if you like for a fee. Takes the worry off your hands of having to physically go to the website to submit your site. You can automate your submissions with them !

When to Ping Your Site

The time it is necessary to notify the servers about your site is when new content is written on your blog. Most blog platforms do this for you automatically but it does not hurt to spread your content on your own to different servers.

Be sure the content you are providing is good high quality content. With the traffic you can receive from notifying servers it is pertinent that you provide your audience with good content. The lack of good informative content will cause your audience to leave or deem you as the boy who cried wolf. Your always pinging but the content either remains the same or is of low quality. So don’t abuse the ping service.

Index Site : The Benefits of Indexing your Site

Index

“Something that serves to guide, point out, or otherwise facilitate reference”

continue reading …

Just like books are stored/registered in libraries, webpages and blogs are stored/registered in virtual libraries. The term use for the registering of a webpage or blog is indexing.index site

Indexing your site is important for webpages and blogs because it allows your webpage/blog to be found more easily.

Imagine writing a book, publishing it and only keeping it in your house. How many people do you think will find out about your published book if it is not “indexed” anywhere, or sold anywhere ?

I have gathered a list of websites that I deemed to be good index sites for your website or blog.

My Index Site Directory :

I have provided you with paid and free indexing sites. Use your judgement when it comes to the proper index site for you. Paid index sites ensure that your website will be indexed properly and some help out with off page seo factors, creating backlink pages for your website for you and spinning your content and keywords you provide for them. Free index sites allow you to do this manually.

Index Site: The Importance of Indexing

Indexing your site on various directories allows search engine spiders to find your site more easily.

Just as in a library the librarian knows her library well. The standard library is split up into main categories , sub-categories and then alphabetized by authors.

This is the same for directories, main categories , sub-categories and then relevancy.
When indexing your site relevancy of your site is what is going to be key. How relevant is the content you are providing to the category you are listed under ? How relevant is your content to the key words you have chosen to use for your site ? Are you providing good content ?
index site
Benefits of relevancy:

  • users frequent your site more often
  • high search engine rank
  • branding

Indexing will help with your SEO ranking. Now that spiders can more easily locate your site you can see your site ranking higher in search engines, given that you have followed proper on page seo factors.

With your website/blog ranking in search engines you can look for increased traffic. It is pertinent that with this increased traffic you are providing good content. Search engines keep track of how long a user is on your site, links they clicked on and how fast they leave. The better the content the longer a user will stay on your site and click around.

Indexing your site is one the most important things you can do for your website/blog. Make sure to index your site on sites relevant to the content you provide and continue to provide your audience with good content.
