3 Online Money Making Strategies

by Andrew Witherspoon
Give Your Site A Better Than Fighting Chance

Are you trying to make money using the internet and don't know exactly what to do to make that elusive cash? Well, maybe I can help. I know personally of three proven techniques (that worked for me) that can help you to boost you income with a blog or website. Two of these methods you don't even need a web presence, just access to the net, email, forums, chat rooms will do just fine. Below is my top picks in the internet monetizing strategies I use, which are affiliate programs, online content, and rss feeds. I hope this article is helpful, send me an email to let me know how it turned out.

AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

This is a method of promoting web businesses in which an affiliate is rewarded for every visitor, subscriber, customer, and/or sale provided through his/her efforts. Compensation or commission may be made based on a certain value for each exposure (CPM), visit (Pay per click), registrant or new customer (Pay per lead), sale (usually a percentage, Pay per sale or revenue share), or any combination of them.

Merchants like affiliate marketing because it is a "pay for performance model", meaning the merchant does not incur a marketing expense unless results are realized. Classic affiliate marketing is based on relationship between advertiser and affiliate and it's maintenance is resource intensive because of that.

Unlike display advertising affiliate marketing is not easy scalable, which is one of it's weaknesses. The borders between affiliate marketing and other advertising and marketing methods, like display advertising and pay per click, became more and more blurry over the years, which can make it difficult to distinguish between an Ad publisher and an affiliate working on a performance basis.

Some e-commerce sites run their own affiliate programs while other e-commerce vendors use third party services provided by intermediaries to track traffic or sales that are referred from affiliates. Some businesses owe much of their growth and success to this marketing technique, especially small and mid size businesses.

Merchants who are considering adding an affiliate strategy to their online sales channel have different technological solutions available to them. Some types of affiliate management solutions include: standalone software, hosted services, shopping carts with affiliate features, and third party affiliate networks.

Revenue generated online grew quickly. The e-commerce website, viewed as a marketing toy in the early days of the web, became an integrated part of the overall business plan and in some cases grew to a bigger business than the existing offline business. Many companies hired outside affiliate management companies to manage the affiliate program (see outsourced program management.)

According to one report, total sales generated through affiliate networks in 2006 was £2.16 billion in the UK alone. The estimates were £1.35 billion in sales in 2005. MarketingSherpa's research team roughly estimates affiliates worldwide will earn $6.5 billion in bounty and commissions in 2006. This includes retail, personal finance, gaming and gambling, travel, telecom, 'Net marketing' education offers, subscription sites, and other lead generation, but it does not include contextual ad networks such as Google AdSense.

Currently the most active sectors for affiliate marketing are the adult, gambling and retail sectors. The three sectors expected to experience the greatest growth in affiliate marketing are the mobile phone, finance and travel sectors. A lot of different offers from various Advertisers are available to pick from. Hot on the heels of these are the entertainment (particularly gaming) and internet-related services (particularly broadband) sectors. Also several of the affiliate solution providers expect to see increased interest from B2B marketers and advertisers in using affiliate marketing as part of their mix. Of course, this is constantly subject to change. Contents

ONLINE CONTENT

Writing online content is a way for you to get tremendous traffic to you site and also interest readers in the article topic as well as possibly getting interested in the links (viral articles) you have embedded in the article. My suggestion for writing basic content articles is this:

In the intro: Tell them what you are going to tell them in the article.

In the body: Tell them!

In the summary: Tell them what you told them!

BIO Box: Very Important...give them a sentence of two about you...and then lead into your promotion...this is most commonly done like this:

"Did you find those tips on XXXX useful? You can learn a lot more about how XXXX can help you XXXX here."

Also if the site you are promoting is giving away a free course...or free tour...make sure you mention that in your BIO.

Here are my two top online content programs and the features they have.

RSS FEEDS

Rss Feeds are another way to make money. RSS is a family of XML file formats for web syndication used by news websites and weblogs. They are used to provide items containing short descriptions of web content together with a link to the full version of the content. This information is delivered as an XML file called RSS feed, webfeed, RSS stream, or RSS channel. Rss feeds can bring you money in two ways. One by bringing you traffic from your own site feed and two, by hosting feeds on your site (sort of like a refferral or affiliate program), that pay you.

Here are my two top rss feed programs and the features they have.

RSS Content Builder

If you are going to be doing a lot of work on the internet you are probably going to need a way to easily handle all the different types of payments you will receive. My favorite solution to this minor dilemma is to use a third party vendor such as paypal. What!, you don't have a paypal account? I recommend that you get one right away, it will make doing business a whole lot easier. Get PayPal Now!!
