Getting traffic to your sites

If you have decided to create some websites and make some money out of it, then you should make sure that you’ll be spending at least 5 hours daily for your sites. These things can’t be done by spending an hour or two a week in an internet cafe. It would be great, if you are with a laptop and a dedicated internet connection.

After you create websites, you should be pouring in traffic to those sites. Simply spamming here and there wont do any good. For that, you should go on with things the natural way. Yup, I mean it. You should be creating an identity for yourself online. You should make others contact you for help or for any other kinda stuffs. What I wanted to say is that – you should be active in online communities.

Being active in online communities means to respond to discussions that are discussed over those places. It’ll benefit you in many ways. This way, you’ll be better known by others – not just that, your skills will also be known by others. This way, you can get some potential clients if you are good at doing some kind of services online – like article writing, logo designing, programming etc. But, our primary aim should be to drive traffic to our sites.

Almost all online communities allow to put a link to our websites in our profile page which we’ll be getting after registering an account there. And some sites will even allow you to start blogs there. And being an active member out there, your blog will be visited by many. Take this as an opportunity to drive traffic to your sites. I hope you guys will be knowing how to deal with things from then on. If you are able to follow things till this stage, then the next stage is something that you’ll be able to do pretty easily without anyone’s help. So go for it – you’ll surely be succeeding if you have followed what we have explained here.



Getting backlinks the easy way

One of the easiest and most natural way to get backlinks is by article marketing. It includes submitting articles in article directories, and also writing and publishing content on different blogs. One of the best article directory at the moment is – you can submit articles there and also get a backlink from the site to yours. It is a high authority site, and so, even an inner page will be of great value when it comes to deciding the quality of a backlink.

The advantage of submitting articles to ezinearticles is that you’ll be getting traffic, and also quality backlinks. Yup, you heard it right. The articles in ezinearticles are published in a lot of sites. When people publish these articles in their site, they’ll be including the link that is at the bottom of the article as well. And this link would be to your site if the article that they are publishing in their site is something you have already published in ezine. The number of people who copy your article may vary depending on the quality of the article. So, if you want a lot of people to copy your article, then you should be publishing quality articles. This way, you are getting more than one backlink. In your article at ezinearticles you’ll be able to put a maximum of 2-3 links at the end of the article. And when these are copied by others, then the number of backlinks will multiply to a big number!

This way, you are getting not only backlinks, but also traffic to your sites. The number of backlinks that you’ll be getting will depend on the quality of articles that you are publishing in the article directory. If you just don’t care about the quality of the article, then you can use some article re-writing software and then rewrite an article to many and then post to many article directories. This way, the number of backlinks can be increased pretty easily. But the quality of a software re-written article won’t be that good as a manually written unique article. So, think what’s better for you, and go for it.



Flipping websites

Flipping websites is something any noob can do. But before you start you should be taking a pledge that – you’ll be selling your site – if you are getting profit. That should be the only aim of yours from now on – if you are thinking of flipping websites. From now on, don’t create sites for keeping it with you – you should create sites planning to sell them for the best price. The better the site and the domain name, the better will be the profit that you’ll be seeing from them. There is no need of keeping sites for long. But it will have advantage when selling – if the site is with traffic. But there is no use of getting traffic and all, if your aim is to flip sites.

I’m not completely against – getting traffic to sites before flipping it. But you should do these things on a rapid manner. Your aim should be to create more and more sites. This way, you’ll see money coming in your pockets pretty fast. And using this money, you can make these things done by others. Yes, you can hire professionals who are experienced in making sites. You can hire separate professionals for writing content, designing the pages, driving traffic etc. And when you do things this way, you’ll be able to create more sites per month or even per week.

Again, as a website flipper, never create sites to keep it with you. Create sites to sell off for profits. If you register good domain names, then the profit that you’ll be making after selling the sites would be much higher. Some buyers give more preference over the domain name rather than the content or design of the site. So, keep these things in mind. If you start flipping sites, you’ll surely be making some easy money online. And one more thing, don’t start hiring workers now, do that only after you make some money by flipping your first 10-20 sites. By then you’ll be having money to hire them and pay what they ask. Don’t hire cheap workers – hire those that are qualified to do those works. Again, don’t spend any money out of your pockets. First of all, earn some money by working on your own. Then using the profit that you got, hire workers and earn more.



Do you want to be an Internet Marketer?

An Internet Marketer is one who creates websites and sells products online. For that, it is not necessary to create our own products. We can sell products that are made by others as well. But what’s in it for them? Actually we’ll be just driving sales to the sales page of the product – and if anyone orders the product from there, we’ll be getting commission that would have already been mentioned in the merchants website.

So, what we’ll be doing is that – we’ll be finding quality products that would be easy to sell without much efforts. There are millions of products our there. From those products, select the ones which you think – would be worth the time and efforts that we’ll be putting on it. Before you plan to promote a product, make sure you’ll be getting good commissions after the sales. Also, make sure that the payment will be guaranteed or not. There are a lot of affiliate sites – like CJ, clickbank etc-these are sites, where you will find some great products to promote in your sites.

The benefit of promoting products found in sites like CJ and others is that – we’ll be surely getting paid if we make a sale. That’s because we are not dealing directly with clients. We are dealing with these big companies and hence we can be assured that we’ll be getting payment at the end of the month.

But the main thing is to drive sales. And for that you should be having some kind of platform. Creating a website is the best option in front of you. It won’t take much time – you can even create a WP blog and then start promoting the products. After the site is ready, you should select products to promote in the sites. Create a lot of sites and each should be for promoting a different kind of product. In the site, you should be reviewing it as if you have already bought the product and satisfied with it. At the end of the review you can put a link which will be allowing others to go and buy the product from the authors site.


Common Affiliate Marketing Mistakes

Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest and common ways to make money online. Affiliate marketing allows everyone to make some money online whether you are the marketer or the product owner. There are thousands of affiliate marketing programs and they are all super easy to join.

Like all businesses, there are several downsides in the affiliate marketing business. If you are going to make a profit it has to be done right. Committing the most common mistakes can mean a huge portion took from you that could have been on your next paycheck. That is why you must avoid them.

The first mistake hundreds of people make is choosing the wrong affiliate marketing program. In a hurry to make cash people choose affiliate marketing programs who products may not interest a lot of people. Some choose a program that offers products that they think is “hot”. Neither are good moves. Choosing programs that offers products that might not interest people means no commission or money for you. If you join a program that offers products that are “hot” you will be competing with thousands of others who are promoting the same product.

You have to chose a program that offers products you are interested in. Do research on it and see if this product is in demand. If the product is in demand that will mean more commission for you.

A lot of people make the mistake of joining multiple affiliate programs, in an effort to make more money. There is nothing wrong with having different sources of income. If you join too many affiliate marketing programs you won’t be able to concentrate and promote them all well. You can end up making little or no money at all.

When choosing an affiliate program you have to make sure it’s something you are interested in. Things you have a passion for you will promote it well. As we talked about before many people tend to join programs that offer products that are considered “hot”. If you don’t promote it well you won’t make any money. So any affiliate program is a money maker. It’s all in the way you endorse your product.


Can You Make Money With Adsense

One special thing about ad sense is that anyone and everyone can earn money off of Adsense. Here are some facts that I found:

Writing unique articles quality articles for Adsense websites and placing Google ads on your websites are the two main ways in making money through websites. The good thing about both ways is that you don’t have to have an college education or any experience.

You can write articles for webmaster who own Adsense sites. These webmasters are always looking for quality and keyword rich content to put on their websites. Content is king.

Blog Commenting

Have you seen the comments section in blogs? Okay, did you ever posted a comment using those forms? If not just try to do it once. You’ll then understand what we are going to tell you here.

Most of the blogs that you’ll find online would be allowing you to give a link to your website as well. This is a good way of getting an easy backlink to your site. Blog commenting is something even experienced webmasters still use. If you haven’t tried it till now, then it’s just your ignorance about things that you can do to increase the number of backlinks to your site.

Some blogs will be moderating comments and hence you won’t see your comments in those sites if you post irrelevant comments. So, before you post a comment, make sure you read the post from top to bottom. Doing so, you would be surely learning something new. And this will help you to write fresh content in your sites as well. But don’t go for copy pasting – write on your own.

Posting a relevant comment has some other benefits as well. When you post an informative comment, people will be getting a better impression about you. And this will prompt them to visit your website in return.

So, what do you think now? Will you be posting irrelevant or relevant comments? When you do things the right way, there will be always some other benefits that you’ll be getting indirectly about which you might have never been thought of.

Blog commenting can bring in a lot of one way, quality backlinks if you post comments in relevant blogs that matches the niche that you are targeting. For example, if your site is related with football, then comment in blogs related to sports and not on business blogs. And ya, don’t forget to include your website url in the space provided to do the same – I know you won’t forget that 🙂



Benefits of hiring a designer

Are you bored using those free themes for your wordpress blogs? If so, its time for your to hire a WP designer who would be designing a unique WP theme based on your requirements. This will make your blog stand out from the crowd. Not just that, it’ll even increase the number of visitors to your site.

Getting a brand new theme for your blog can do a lot to your online business. This may even make others contact you for getting more information regarding the theme. If you are planning to give them your unique theme, then you may ask them a fee for the same. This way, by hiring a good designer you won’t be at lose.

But before you hire a designer you should be discussing certain things with him. You should be asking him to show demos of the themes that he have created in the past. This will make you know more about the skills of that particular designer. You should also ask, the time frame for getting the whole theme designed for you. Then you can start telling more about your project like what all features you would be needing etc. You can even ask his own views on the same. Sometimes, he would be having some better ideas for testing in your blog. Since, they would have designed themes for many, they’ll having an edge over us. So, it’s always a good idea to ask their views regarding the theme that has to be designed.

Depending on the niche of your blog, a good designer may come up with some cool designs for you to choose from. And if you don’t like the samples that he have designed, you may ask him to come up with a new one. There is nothing wrong in that. It’s your right to ask for it – there is no use to pay for something that you don’t like. A good designer will be patient and will be cooperative. So, these are some of the things that you should be keeping in your mind, if you are planning to hire someone to design your favorite blog.
