Strategic Planning for Website Promotion and Internet Marketing

By Jessy Rider
Search Engine Optimization is the need for every website or online business. To increase number of visitors or to multiply revenue earnings, people need to promote their website. Website promotion doesn’t mean spending lot of money on buying links or banner space on other websites. You need to develop a strategic website optimization and promotion plan to get maximum benefits. The best thing is that, it will not cost you a fortune.

A perfect website promotion campaign works on four basic levels:

Internal Optimization of Website

For instant boost in search engine rankings of website, it has to be well optimized on structural level. If a website is not designed and developed in search engine friendly manner, it will not get indexed by search engines easily. There are several constraints from Search Engine Optimization point of view which should be taken care at the time of designing and development of website. Some don’ts for Search Engines Friendly websites are as follows:

1. Heavy web pages with graphics and videos (it takes time in loading)

2. Use of Frames (Search Engine Spiders cannot crawl through Frame pages)

3. Images without ALT tag (it reduces the chance of getting indexed for required keywords)

4. Flash Content (Flash is unreadable for Search Engine Crawlers, so contents inside a flash movie will not be readable by search Engine)

5. Pages without META Tags (Meta Tags are essential for Search Engine spiders)

Creation of Relevant Keyword Rich Contents for Website

Content based indexing is an essential phenomenon of every search engines. Keyword rich contents on website always help in easy and regular indexing of web pages. Therefore, in order to get listed on top ranks in major search engines a website need relevant keyword rich content.

Contents with perfect saturation of keywords can drastically push up your ranking in all major search engines. However, in order to sustain in top ranking of search engine a website need to update its contents regularly.

Website’s Placement in Search Engines

Once a search engine friendly website equipped with keyword rich contents is ready, we can start its promotion. Initial promotion includes submission of website to all popular search engines and web directories.

Usually all search engine maintains a directory of website in specific niche, they crawl through all the web directories for this task. So, if your website is listed in prestigious high PR web directories like DMOZ, your chances of getting indexed are more.

Creating Awareness about Website’s Existence

The perfect way to create awareness about your newly launched website or recently introduced products is blogging and participating in forums. Yes, it really helps.

How Do I Find The Perfect Niche?


Patricia Rinker

Well first of all we don\'t live in a 'perfect' world so there are no 'perfect' niches, but there are many ways to find really good niches. Once you realize that most of your success starts with researching a niche you will quickly understand how easy this make money online thing works. There are many ways to find great niches to build your website around.

Finding a niche is a process. Choosing a profitable niche is the first step in creating a profitable income online. There are many steps you can take to help you find the right niche. Here are a few:

1. Start with something you are familiar with and do your research. When you choose a niche which is familiar to you it makes working on it easier because you are equipped with the knowledge therefore, you will not have to spend as much time exploring it. Of course if you choose a niche you are unfamiliar with you will need to spend more time researching and gathering information.

2. Do the necessary research to see if there is a market for your niche. To have a profitable business for your niche, ask yourself the  following questions

-         Is there enough demand for it?

3. Identify a common problem or question for your niche. If you have done your keyword research well, you should be able to single out one. You can confirm this by visiting forums. I encourage you to follow this procedure because you could be able to recognize more opportunities you can explore in your niche.

Some other good ways to find your perfect niche are to look at magazine or newspaper headlines or ads. You can even get your niche idea from watching the news. Niche ideas are everywhere you just have to pay attention for them. The internet and radio are also good ways to find niches. The thing to remember is you are looking for a product or service to help a hungry audience that is waiting to purchase.

You might also want to think about marketing sectors that always have products; these are huge niches with many sub-niches; for example one such niche is the pet niche. There are so many guides on dog training – it\'s crazy. Health & Fitness is another great niche with thousands of sub-niches. Growing Organic Food would be a great niche idea.

I hope I have provided you with some useful information on finding your perfect niche. There are tons of niches out there just waiting for you to reap in the profits. Go out there and find your niche and make some money. Happy niche hunting!

There Are 4 Main Methods Of Increasing Your Adsense Revenue


Artavius Hill

Nothing is as frustrating as watching your Google AdSense revenue trickling in cents; $.10 here $.30 cents there and $.0 cents over there. So much for all the hype about guys making thousands a month with AdSense. Me thinks, thiz Adzenz thing be weird!!

Read this article, Try the 4 facts, and up the wall you will drive AdSense!

Lets face it, if my website traffic is anywhere in the hundreds a day, there is no way under these blue skies I\'m gonna make myself enough money over the internet. I read a review of some website with mammoth traffic and they make over $15,000 a month. Heck, Digital Point makes anywhere around $10,000 a month on a 50revenue share with their contributor members. That is $10,000 being 50of what is left after forum members have been paid off. 'Google pays Digital Point about $10,000 a month, depending on how many people view or click on those ads', said Shawn D. Hogan, the owner and chief technology officer of Digital Point.

Here is the kicker. I don\'t in my wildest dreams think I\'ll ever have a website the size of digital point, ever! But I can make 100 small ones. See, I\'m just an average Joe trying to make head, tail, or both, whichever comes first; of this internet money thingii. And right now I\'m not sure I\'m holding onto the tail or neck.

I have been doing some research on Google AdSense and I want to share with you some interesting things. Things that I didn\'t know about and things I believe if I had known earlier, I would still be having some hair left on my head. (Pulled much of it off trying to double my AdSense to $ 0.40 a day). Anyway, I have concentrated my research on how to optimize my AdSense revenue even before I work on increasing traffic to my 2 blogs.

In my quest, I have learned that the secret to increasing your AdSense revenue lies in mastering four main factors namely:

Creating Relevant Ads

From my Google AdSense account reports, I have noticed I earn much more from AdSense for content ad groups as opposed to the AdSense referral ads and AdSense for search bar. If you have an AdSense account, you know that there are three types of AdSense ads that you can choose to be served by Google on your site. These are AdSense for content ads that are related to your website\'s general content. The content based ads are the best performers in generating you AdSense revenue and they are definitely your best bet. Make sure to concentrate your efforts to having as many relevant content ads as possible if you want to make the money.

Then there are AdSense referral ads that you can choose for your website. These ads are not related to your website content and will advertise anything from bio fuels to air tickets. These Google ads do not do as well as the content based ads. The main reason being that visitors to your site are more interested in relevant content to what they were looking for in the first place. AdSense referral ads are however second to the content based ads in generating revenue. And that\'s a distant second from content ads.

The last type of ads that Google offers you for your website is the Google search bar. The search bar ad group is such that a visitor to your website can type the name of what they are looking for in the bar. The bar connects directly to Google search and will bring the visitor to a Google page with several ads related to what they searched for. I have really not experimented on the effectiveness of this ad groups from Google and would not therefore conclusively say they work or don\'t. It\'s however worth putting up a search bar at a corner of your page or at the bottom.

From the above three discussed Google adgroups, you will notice that content based ads perform better than the other two. Its not rocket science to figure out why. The main reason however is that people searching the web are looking for particular information of their interest. They are therefore more likely to click on ads that seem relevant to their search. AdSense adcopies are written such that they offer answers to very specific needs and a visitor will most likely click on an ad that seems to answer their quest. And that\'s all you need them to do to earn your money. Click.

For example, people looking for Movie Downloads will be confronted with ads that offer them all sorts of diverse benefits and types of downloading movies online. Likewise, People looking for Water-for- gas cost saver kits and manuals on their cars will be bombarded with ads that offer increasing mileage per gallon of gas etc. Once again, concentrate on requesting from Google only those ads relevant to your website\'s content.

Serving Only High Paying Ads

In the real sense, choosing high paying ads from Google AdSense will in effect determine the content you put on your website. In other words, if you want to concentrate on high paying ads, and considering that you need relevant content to earn good AdSense income, then by default you will have to make a website or blog on topics that pay prime dollar for clicks on them. In a nutshell, not all ads pay the same with Google. Since competition for some products is excruciatingly high, the advertisers are willing to pay top dollar for their ads to appear first on Google content based advertising network.

Google adwords (this is where advertisers bid and create their ads on Google) offer the advertisers an option to allow Google to distribute their ads to other websites within their network besides Google that have relevant content to the ads. This is how you end up with AdSense being served by Google on your website in the first place. Now here is the spoiler, not all ads that you choose will pay as high. Ads for new technology, gadgets and gizmos pay much more higher since the manufacturers are willing to pay as much to enter the market and make their product known. Google ads for such products pay you equally higher dollars per click as opposed to ads for say nail vanish.

I have seen some adwords bids that start from $5 per click. Other companies and individuals bid as high as $50 per click to maintain the pole position in Google results pages. The revenue principle applying to AdSense when Google serves the ads onto your website is practically the same. On the converse, the highest bid by advertisers is a paltry $0.05 for some products. Which ads would you rather get served with by Google?-go figure.

For you to be able to run high paying AdSense ads, you will need to make a thorough research on minimum bids made by advertisers in adwords. This is not rocket science really. One way of telling a certain area has higher bids is to Google a product you suspect might have high competition among advertisers. Just counting the number of adwords ads appearing for that particular keyword will tell you much.

A Google SERP (Search Engine Results Page) with a lot of ads appearing on it might indicate that the advertisers on that keyword are bidding serious figures per click on their website.

The higher a particular ad appears on a highly competitive keyword usually indicates higher bids and you may want to consider creating websites in such an area and get it served with AdSense. But also bear in mind that high ad counts also means that it\'s a highly competitive field and getting traffic for your website might be like pulling teeth...and with a pair of tweezers that is.

It pays to do an intensive research into areas to create websites for AdSense revenue. Since AdSense is served automatically by Google to your website, your only maneuver is to look for very specialized, less competitive, high paying niche areas and keywords to create your website content on. As a rule of thumb, new products are naturally good niche areas to start with; assuming that you catch on the fad soon enough before every man and his dog start selling the same product. Please note that we are placing emphasis on guys that want to use AdSense as their main source of online revenue here.

In most cases and usually why we (me included) make measly AdSense income is that, we create websites in areas of our own interest and then serve AdSense ads to them. Problem is, our preferred areas of interest are not necessarily areas that can make us worthwhile money with AdSense. Research an AdSense area that pays, then create unique content on that, serve the ads and laugh all the way to the bank. Kind of doing things in reverse... banana eating monkey sort of thing.

Positioning And Designing Your Ads

This is an area that I want to approach with a lot of caution. One thing is painfully true, and that is your AdSense ads are not worth the space if they are not optimally designed and positioned. One of the biggest advantages with serving AdSense ads is that Google lets you design and position your ads on your own website. But, which design and positions work best? Just like the offline world, positioning an outdoor advertisement makes all the difference between the ad being seen and it passing as a waste of resources.

Why does placing a TV ad at prime time, for example, cost more than double that of placing it dead in the night or early in the morning? Better still a billboard on an unused highway will not receive as much audience as one in a freeway that has huge amounts of vehicular traffic.

The same principle works with serving ads from Google AdSense. Placement of your ads is everything in getting noticed by visitors to your website and eventually getting them clicked on. Some areas of your website are actually prime real (or is that virtual) estate while others are... well, badlands, abandoned dumb and quarry sites.

Positioning Your AdSense Ads

As mentioned above, you need to know which areas of your website or blog work for AdSense. Research (and don\'t ask me by who) has shown that an online browser\'s eye is trained more emphatically on certain areas of a webpage while other areas receive just a gloss-over glance. It is also true that a webpage visitor\'s eye lands automatically and for the first instance on a particular area of a page and then follows a certain trail of vision on that webpage. Disconcerting, is it?...No, it\'s actually a nightmare for an advertiser if you don\'t have those facts.

You might have noticed that, in a Google SERP (i.e. the results page you get when you search a word in Google) ads always appear on the mid top and right side of the page. Fact is that, advertisers on these two areas pay completely different rates. The ads on the top of the page are called sponsored ads, while those on the right edge of the page are called adwords.

The middle top area (sponsored ads) is also much more expensive to advertise on while the right-top side ads (1st to 5th positions) are priced higher than the mid-right and bottom right adwords areas. Although, this is done through a bidding process, the idea is clear that, if your ad is the first on the top right side of the page, you get hit more than those below you. This is not only exclusive to Google but to most if not all search engines online that run ads on their SERPs.

Ok, let\'s bring it home. Considering your webpage will be providing other relevant and mainframe content in the middle of the page, you will need to follow Google ad positioning example. For starters, you can try to place AdSense ads at the mid-top of the webpage. The best ad design that works for the top page section is the leaderboard format which stretches the ads across from left to right of the page. Usually about three to four AdSense ads will be served with the leader board format.

The leaderboard ads are available in the ads set up button within the horizontal ads drop down. All this is possible once you get Google to approve your account, you will be able to create your ads there and get a HTML code provided for you to paste to your webpage. Google promotes family friendly websites and blogs and will need to review your website before approval. They discourage websites with adult content; your website should also have well arranged and meaningful content.

Your next prime real estate on the webpage is the far right hand side. This is a crucial area and you might want to place the ads right from the top running downwards as a column. Again, I have experimented on this area with the broad banner ads from AdSense and they fit in like a glove hence bracketing the main middle text. The broad banner format is available from your Google ad set up button in your account under the vertical ads section.

Personally, I select the text-only ads from the create-new-ad button. You have a choice of ad types including texts and images, text only and images only formats. I prefer the text only since it\'s now accepted that text ads attract more interest than banner and image ads. I think it\'s something to do with an ad getting to the point as fast and as effectively as possible.

Now, the other available position has been subject to a lot of debate; but there are still some marketers who swear by it. This is the mid-text AdSense ads. These are ads that are placed in between your main text and separated into two, three or four parts depending on the size of the main text. Basically it interrupts the flow of the text after some delivery of information. By text I mean your main page content located at the middle of the page. I cannot deny that locating the ads mid-text really gets them seen by people interested in reading your full content. But there are also visitors that might consider it an interruption to their reading and just pass along. I think this position\'s effectiveness surely depends on an individual reader and I might want to leave the choice up to you here.

The last AdSense positioning real estate is the end-text position. This is placed at the very bottom of your webpage text. This position is equally important for webpage visitors that have read your content and might see something that catches their eye at the end. It is proven that a visitor prefers a sense of continuity while doing their web searches as opposed to opening one page, closing it and opening another altogether. If your end-text AdSense ads are relevant enough to the content on display, the visitor will most likely sign off from your page by clicking on that last ad. Which I believe is good enough for that AdSense revenue click.

As I end the positioning AdSense discussion here, I might want to mention that caution is necessary to avoid overdoing it by serving too many ads. Your webpage should have just enough AdSense ads to create a wrap around effect to your main text. The webpage should avoid looking like an overcrowded flea market. Usually Google allows you to serve about 15 ads per page but you need not go the whole nine yards with it. Place just enough on each page to make it optimized for AdSense revenue.

Designing your AdSense ads

You will also be able to design the format of your ads within your AdSense account. Google allows you to play around the text of the ads within certain parameters like size, type, nature, text color, borders color, background colors, url color and the shape of their edges. Google also lets you choose how you want your AdSense ads to contrast against your main text by being able to choose the templates among them blend, mother earth etc. Personally I have found blending my ads to the text works where I don\'t want them to conspicuously stand out.

While designing your ads for primarily the purposes of AdSense income, you may want to consider making them stand out. Take care however not to overdo the colors, otherwise your site will look like its reading the riots act to visitors to click on them or else... The idea here is to softly make the ads stand out but not so much as to distract the reader of the main text. This means you will be doing a balancing act with the AdSense font color, the background and the general shape around the edges of the ad boxes.

My research has shown that choosing a soft AdSense ad background like light grey combined with emphasized text color on that ad\'s background has a good effect on the click through rates. But grey if your own site\'s background is white. Grey works best with websites with a white background. Other lighter colors work best with different backgrounds on websites. I guess I\'m trying to say that your AdSense background color should just be enough to provide a slight shade to differentiate it from your original website\'s background. Don\'t make it scream here.

This might hold true when you visit other websites like which shares its AdSense revenues with article contributors. What they do here is that they serve AdSense ads around your article and if it\'s a nice piece, you will get decent clicks if not an outright click-riot. I observed that, since their website background is white, they serve their AdSense ads with an ad-background of light grey while blending the top-text ad\'s background white. Your best bet here is not to take my word for it but to keep on tweaking, testing and turning the ads until you see what works for your website.

High Traffic Levels

This is the devil in AdSense income. The above three aspects of increasing your AdSense income will only work to a certain extent and as far as your traffic goes. As I said this is where AdSense becomes everybody\'s biggest headache. However if we are to look at this critically, there are a hundred ways to drive traffic to the websites.

Let\'s assume we have already worked on the other three areas to our satisfactions. We are now more than sure that for whatever traffic we bring to our websites, we will be able to milk the most revenue out of them. I think that is important. No one wants visitors to be making a pass by their website without ever contributing a cent to their revenues online. So optimized they are and out you go for traffic.

I don\'t want to go deep into this area of bringing traffic to your website but let\'s just say the methods are many besides writing unique content, writing articles with links to your websites, adwords, contributing in forums among many others. The most important and that which will save you a lot of agony and time is to choose a niche area that has comparatively less competition. Since we started off making websites for AdSense, we might as well ensure that we make websites with content that attracts the search engines, hence traffic.

Choose your niche area well and the search engines will pick you out. Visitors will be on your website like ants to a Popsicle- with the right content. To help you with selecting a niche area, you can use the Google trends keyword tool to measure the competition of a particular keyword. As a rule of thumb, avoid keywords that are crowded. The competition won\'t do you any good.

There are people out there who have mastered the art of making multiple websites for AdSense revenue. Most of them use the automated softwares that help them develop unique websites in certain niches. An example of good AdSense automated website developer software that is popular in the market is the HYPERVRE []. (see below)This software is designed to prompt you generate the most unique sets of keywords and go on to develop unique content. As mentioned earlier, making websites in unique niche areas is the key to getting massive traffic sent your way by the search engines. Well designed and unique website content also saves you the agony of leveraging your website traffic by writing articles, buying advertising space, email lists and all other related headaches to generating traffic.

Concentrate on making websites that attract traffic by themselves, then keep on churning out as many websites as you can using the automated softwares. Within 2 months you will notice your AdSense revenue expanding to unimagined levels. So much for your earlier belief that-nobody can earn more than adcents monthly.

How To Improve Alexa Ranking Quickly


Fernando Hal Huang

Alexa Ranking is a site ranking assigned by Alexa Internet to measure websites\' popularity. It claims to use a number of factors in deciding the site popularity, but really it depends mainly on usage data collected by the Alexa toolbar.

The higher the ranking is, the smaller number is the rank given. Based on Alexa, Google (Alexa Ranking 1) is the most popular website in the Internet, followed by Yahoo(2), Facebook(3), and Youtube(4).

You can see website ranking in your browser after installing the toolbar or just check it at Alexa website.

How accurate is Alexa Ranking?

In a perfect world, Alexa user base would be a fair statistical sample of the Internet user population, and thus the ranking should be quite accurate in comparing popularity of one site to another.

However, in reality Alexa Ranking is hardly reliable. Alexa ranks sites based on tracking information of users of its Alexa Toolbar for Internet Explorer and from plugins in Firefox. Thus it is greatly dependent on the number of Alexa toolbar installed among the site visitors.

Websites targeted to webmasters and web designers generally do better in Alexa Ranking compared to websites in other niche, e.g. food or pregnancy. That is largely because webmasters are more willing to install the Alexa toolbar to check on the competitors\' Alexa ranking as well as to push up their own website ranking.

Internet users in some countries are also more willing to install the Alexa Toolbar compared to others. I have seen a Singapore website with 10k visitors a day ranked 60k in Alexa, while an Indonesian site with just 1k visitor a day ranked 30k in Alexa.

How To Get Higher Alexa Ranking Easily

Less than a week ago, the 7 day average of Ranking was 165,534. Today when I checked again, the 7 day average has advanced to 93,963, with yesterday ranking was an even better 67,568.

At 67,568 it means that Cheatad ranks even better than my other website which has 40 times more visitors and 120 times more pageviews. That is absolutely amazing, or ridiculous, depending how you see it.

On the other hand, while that is a bit unexpected, there is really not much surprise here. Alexa Ranking is known to be unreliable, and skewed specially to websites with webmasters visitors.

The main factor of Alexa Ranking calculation is the number of visits by the Alexa toolbar users. Knowing that, it is quite easy to improve Alexa ranking for your website. As long as more of your visitors have Alexa toolbar, your Alexa ranking will shoot up.

Here is the five easy and simple ways to rank higher in Alexa:

1. Install Alexa Toolbar

Download and install Alexa Toolbar. If your browser is Firefox, you can either use the Sparky plugin (official Alexa toolbar for Firefox) or SearchStatus plugin. I personally use Search Status for the other nice functions like ability to highlight nofollow link, calculate keyword density, etc.

2. Encourage Others To Install Alexa Toolbar

This includes your blog readers as well as friends. The point is, it should be easier convert your current regular visitors to use the toolbar rather than getting new visitors that happen to have Alexa toolbar installed.

3. Write About Alexa Ranking

Posting an article about Alexa Ranking is a good way to attract more webmasters to your blog, most of whom have the toolbar installed.

4. Participate In Webmaster Forums

Again, most webmasters have Alexa toolbar installed. When allowed, make sure to include your blog URL in the forum Signature. Some interested webmasters might just click to visit your blog.

5. Reload Your Pages Incessantly

With your Alexa toolbar installed, read back all articles you have written, try different searches, and refresh pages over and over, to increase the pageview count. Even better, set your webpage to auto refresh every 15 seconds.

Well, try them and you will notice your Alexa Ranking shooting up. Of course, you need to make sure you actually have got good contents and good number of visitors too. Otherwise the Alexa rank that you have gained will be short-lived.

Getting Started With Adsense


Google Adsense Knowledge

A very important element in the rapid adoption of AdSense is that it has been very easy for publishers to get the ads on their site as quickly as possible.

Integrating AdSense in your website takes only a few minutes, and you can be on your way with one or more nicely integrated AdSense ads.

The first thing you need to do is navigate to and either apply or log in with your existing account and password. What follows is a page presenting the Google AdSense Terms and Conditions which you must agree to in order to proceed.

You are presented with a report page which you can use to get a detailed status on how your AdSense advertising is doing. This allows you to improve your site\'s contents and layout to maximize your AdSense earnings.

On the top of your page you also have link to the setup section where you can generate the code that will need to be pasted on your website in order to have AdSense banners on your page.

You can use AdSense for text (the said ads), using a search box or with referrals. Your choice among these options depends on how users will navigate your site.

Finally, there is a 'My Account' tab which allows you to set up details concerning your account, payment and tax information.

To add a text ad on your site, go back to the 'AdSense Setup' tab and click the 'AdSense for content' link. Make sure you have cookies enabled in your browser.

You can make a choice between ad units and link units. The former contain text and or images concerning a certain site for each unit, most with a detailed description, the latter only contain links to certain types.

Of course, it\'s a bit hard to know which type you should use so you should probably experiment with both for a while before you decide.

You can also view an example of how the unit will look to the right of your page. However, you may only use three ad units and one link unit on any given page. This is believed to be a step which Google takes for quality control.

The next step is to choose your add format and colors. You can basically select any color palette you choose with Google offering some of its own if you don\'t have the time or skill to create one. You can constantly view how the palette will look through the aid of an example. The one that works best in terms of appearance and revenues will vary with the look, feel and content of a website.

However, your ad formats are limited to a choice of eleven formats. There\'s an 'Ad Formats' link which takes you to a page that lets you see all even of these in action so you can decide best which one suits your site. Sometimes the most intrusive, doesn’t work best however again, this can vary from website to website.

After you finish with customization, you can click 'Continue' from the bottom of the page.

You are now presented with a section entitled 'AdSense for Content'. You can click anywhere in the text and that shows the JavaScript required to get AdSense running. This will automatically select the text in the box.

You can then copy it and paste it into your pages directly. If you use dynamic pages, you should paste this code within your template so as to ensure that it gets displayed on any page of your website. Some advertisers choose not to display Adsense on every page, and this is understandable. An example of this is a company that has adsense, may also have terms and condition which would inevitably provide legal resources which would probably be deemed inappropriate.

What is then left for you to do is get content on your page (provided you didn\'t have any already). Google AdSense crawlers will soon visit your site, making sure that the ads displayed are relevant to your site\'s content.

And you\'re all done. For a simple page this should indeed be a matter of a few minutes, which is precisely what makes AdSense the choice for so many. Although it is quick, its mass appeal also makes it the best. Through being the most popular, advertisers and publishers alike see Adsense and Adwords as their natural first choice.

Internet Marketing Do's and Don'ts

So lets talk Internet Marketing, you have an affiliate program, product or service to promote and earning money online is the goal.

Number one do is BRANDING

Brand yourself, get your picture and name on everything you promote, don't just peddle the stock standard affiliate pages like everyone else out there. Be unique, the more that people see your face, the more they will become interested in what your doing and if your lucky start to trust you.

Create your own individual splash pages to promote, programs like Adkreator make it dead easy to create stunning splash pages by taking all the HTML out of the design stage. There is also lots of free splash page designers available, here is one at Click Voyager for your perusal.

Stick with it

Once you find the product or program that you wish to promote, stick with it. Don't give up too easy and fall into the trap of switching from program to program hoping that you will come across the easy winner. This is a sure way to fail and bring much disappointment in the long run. Whatever you start with will take lots of hard work and dedication to get it off the ground and bring in the rewards.

Don't do the hard sell

I have been in many a Traffic Exchange Chat room when someone comes in and tries to sell the program they are trying to promote. All this achieves is the alienation of people in the room. A much better approach is to get to know the people in the room, if you see someone ask a question and you know the answer, help them out, build relationships and trust.

It is the same process that has helped us to do well as an affiliate marketer over the last eight years. The good news is that it is a simple three step process. It has worked for us, and if you follow it to a tee, it will work for you.

Step 1: Write about a topic you like or are knowledgeable about: If you like a topic you are more likely to want to write about it. If you are very knowledgeable about it then you will have a lot of good things to say to your audience. The good news is, you can also undertake a lot of research on line, so you don\'t need to know everything straight away.

Step 2: Find out how much competition you have: The best way to start with this is to consider a general topic. Let\'s say it is Dogs, from there you can look at what niches exist for dogs. Examples could be dog training, dog grooming or diet\'s for dogs. Dog training, may be something that you know a lot about or are interested in. More specifically, you could find a micro niche on how to train specific types of dogs, or how to train dogs for specific actions or tricks etc.

Once you have found the niche or micro niche do a quick Google search to see how much is written on the topic. If they are only a few pages of good information then you may be onto a winner. Next check out forums (eg. pet forums) to see what questions people are asking. If they are a few questions relating to your particular niche even better. Also check out how many Google Ads there are. More than two and less than nine is a good range. It means there is some competition but not to much.

Step 3: Check out how many potential customers there are: You now need to see how many potential customers there are. Use the Google Keyword Tool to see how many searches there are on the topic. We recommend under 20,000. Simply type in your niche or micro niche keywords and see what comes up. You can then build your site based on these key words. Once you have done the above, see if there is a relevant product. Start in ClickBank as they are one of the biggest resources on the web. Once you find one start your site. The product is the last step. You have to find a niche that works first!

Yes... the above process does involve a fair bit of work, but it is definitely worth it and you will reap the rewards for the hard work you have put in. All in all it will help you find a niche that is profitable.

Anyone want to earn some extra cash online? Pay off your mortgage, buy a new car, pay those never-ending bills, go on a holiday, put your kids through good schools and universities? Of course you do! But if you\'re not prepared to shop around and have a good look at what\'s out there, or you\'re not prepared to WORK HARD, then move on - BECAUSE THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. Let the weak look after their own!

I read about this guy who has become an internet millionaire while holding down a full-time job. He was so determined to get ahead and earn money that he worked online marketing from 11pm to 3am - on TOP of his regular job - EVERY day for 5 years to realize his dream. Sheer guts and determination got him to where he is today!

My advice to anyone that is looking to do something extra - CONGRATULATIONS! I started with a few dollars behind me - not much - but plenty of inspiration. I would do online surveys, apply for free e-books (as I didn\'t have the cash to buy into every offer) and I would earn a few measly bucks from marketing surveys- much to the mirth of my wife and kids! I devoured all information - starting at 4am most mornings and then working from 7am to 5pm. Then into the night, looking for that magic easy way to earn money!


In all seriousness though, consider the following. This is 100true as I found out the hard way:

Don\'t believe ONE WORD of these get rich quick schemes. These guys are smart and take your cash, deliver some crap that you could have gotten for free anyway and then never respond to your plaintive emails begging for help.

  • If earning money online was as easy as turning over in bed, why do we all have to go to work every day?
  • I have found that guys who are honest; don\'t promise the world and have the guts to tell you that niche marketing, affiliate marketing and promotion of your skills is hard work. It is VERY REWARDING, but also takes TIME to build the money up. Be patient my friend!
  • Like any business, it will gain it\'s own momentum and it becomes easier to make it work for you. You will soon tell the fakes from the serious marketing guys.
  • There are three things: STUDY, LISTEN and WORK! Peace and prosperity can be yours. Good luck and DON\'T GIVE UP!
