How To Get Traffic To A Website – And Earn $11,737/Mo Doing It

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

Most sites have little traffic going to their websites, or not as much as they would like. In fact , you need only need as little as 15-40 real visitors a day to earn an internet income of $1,000 per month online. Then just by ramping up the traffic, we can expect to experience a proportional revenue increase.

1. Search Engine Optimisation

If I were to do Search Engine Optimisation, the 1st page would normally be a landing page. The subsequent pages would be either a blog, article pages with the main keywords that I want to target on each specific page. A website with just a few pages can rank very well even if there is not much article content. If the site offers a real service, and good user experience, you can expect Google to have it indexed on the 1st page.

2. Pay Per Click Marketing

This is one of my personal favourites. There are many subjects written on how to go about using Pay Per Click marketing or PPC. PPC includes Adwords, Yahoo Search Marketing, Bidvertiser, Adbrite. Adwords actually has a course for this if you're interested to become an Adwords Qualified Professional. PPC generates both expenses as well as revenue. You will need a good business model before spending money on PPC.

How To Get Traffic To Your Site?

Monday, May 26th, 2008

There are many ways to get traffic to a site. The fastest of which is paid advertising. In my view most beginners don't want (or don't dare) to pay for online traffic. 6 figure earners are willing to pay for traffic because this allows a quick way to test their advertising message, which contributes quickly back to their income.

"You could say the rich get richer and the normal…stay the same…"

Its cost efficient to budget $50 to test an ad copy, then to spend 14 days getting into the indexed pages of Google and Yahoo. And even after your pages get indexed, there will be another long wait as you struggle to get repeat visits and eyeballs to your website.

Copy writing is an interesting skill. Though we can't be 100% sure of one person's reaction to a message or communication, we can with a frightening degree of certainty predict the proportion of folks, that will react to a piece of communication. Say 100 people read your message, 2 persons take action, that's a 2% conversion rate and you can demand similar results everytime 100 "TARGETED" folks read the same information.

Paid advertising can get 100s of targeted people to see your message over a few days. We then set up a "PPC tracking campaign". From there, you can check you sales profits versus cost in just days…

Make Money Blogging – Is that the best way?

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

For most people who are sole owners of their own internet business, blogging is a way to generate an income, where the expense are low, and you only need good writing skills and a free blog from blogger.com. Blogs can be monetised by putting banners and paid advertisements on the top and side.  A blogs purpose allows you to connect with an audience that have immense interest in your thoughts and sharings.

Platforms you can blog with:

Blogger: This is a free service from blogger.com. The layout is very easy to use and you can monetise the blogs with Google's Adsense. Registering for Adsense is as simple as visiting Adsense.com. Copy down your Publisher ID and insert it into your blog. This will allow advertising to appear on your blog based on the content you've written.

WordPress: This is an example of a WordPress blog. WordPress has many plug-ins you can use to enhance your blog. It has also many designs and themes you can choose from. Some themes are pre loaded with money making adsense advertising. WordPress is best used with a domain. Usually when you purchase a domain and webhosting, you'll be able to install wordpress on your website. So say if my website is shermanchoo.com, then I can install the default wordpress blog from my hosting cpanel, and later ftp some new templates to my theme folder. WordPress is a little more advanced then Blogger.
While blogs can make one money, not many will reach a 5 figure income from blogging alone. Blogs should be used as a medium of communication where you can offer tips and advice for customers in your niche. To get repeat visits to your blog, you'll need a mailing list of folks in your niche. By combining a blog with a mailing list, that will greatly enhance your income.
