Making Money Without Traffic?

Through the ages men always looked for ways to make more money. Usually this entailed working very hard, or doing a lot of illegal things. The internet truly changed the face of money making opportunities forever. For probably the first time in the history of the world you are able to make money sitting at home the whole day. The Internet opened up brand new ways of increasing your own personal wealth.

Affiliate marketing is probably one of the easiest ways to increase your monthly income, as I am currently doing, and it is open for anybody with a computer and an internet connection. Even people without their own website are able to make extra money being an affiliate. In short affiliate marketing means that you advertise someone else's product and introduce new buyers to their products. For your trouble you are usually paid a percentage of the sale, sometimes up to 75 commission of a $40 sale means you pocket $20 for very little trouble on your side. The wonderful thing about affiliate marketing is that you can make money literally even while you are sleeping. But, there always is a but somewhere, what you seldom hear is that you only make money if you are able to get sellers to the product. In other words, without targeted traffic your changes of making money are extremely slim.

One of your primary concerns is getting good traffic to your site, either by making use of Pay Per Click Advertising like Google Adwords or building your own site and optimizing it for Search Engines. Just a word of warning: Google Adwords can be very expensive if you do not know what you are doing, but it is definitely the fastest way to get traffic. Take a look at my site for some resources available to help you with Google Adwords. On the other hand, building and optimizing your own website can be very cheap, but getting traffic can take some time.

If you want to be successful in affiliate marketing, and thousands already are, you must learn to use the tools available. Do a search on some search engine for Adwords, Affiliate marketing and SEO (or search engine Optimization) and learn a bit about this highly competitive, but extremely lucrative and interesting opportunity. You can also visit my site and learn more about some very good opportunities. Just always remember that in this game numbers make the difference between success and failure. Without large numbers of targeted traffic you will find it difficult to make real money. It will pay you to invest some time in learning about getting targeted traffic first.

You Want To Make Real Money, Please Come

Hi my name is Alvin, three year ago before starting my Internet business, I worked in a travel agency as a Operations & Sales Manager. I was probably in a situation similar to yours, for a start I was sick to death of my job... waking up at 6.30am every morning, rushing out to work, facing bad tempered customers, low wages, rainy days, sunny days, long hours and most of all peak hour traffic jams.

The company eventually ran into financial trouble and was forced to lay off over 50% of it's staff. Well, unfortunately for me, I was included. So there I was, bills to pay, a family to support and unemployed. Where I lived, such jobs weren't easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family.

I turned my attention to the Internet and like to be the same as most of the American, I also wanted to work from the comfort of my own home, working when I wanted to, not when somebody else's rules and regulations demanded.

Actually when I started, I barely knew how to surf the 'net! All I had was the desire to become my own boss, and HUGE motivation to make some good money working from the comfort of my own home.

Continue to read will find how useful the information I provided in this website and start earning steady monthly income by just using your home computer. Whatever reason you have for reading this, maybe your situation is a carbon copy of mine, or yours may involve a difficult boss who's sole purpose in life would seem to be making you're a misery. Perhaps your business has become a profit drain, losing money month after month. Or maybe you give your job your all, only to be paid a pittance for all your blood, sweat and tears. Well, you have landed the right place. After a few hundred hours, a lot of frustration and $3,700 plus some change (excluding about $2,800 expenses which cost me to fly to Australia to learn some important internet promoting techniques and strategies from a computer science degree friend), I am now making a steady income working at the comfort of my own home with my computer with Internet access.

At the start, I have paid to signup, joined and invested in most of the so called "work at home" money making opportunities, but a lot disappointed me. When you searched around on the Internet you will found a lot was junk and scam (but there were good ones too). My research was long and expensive and I made many costly mistakes which I don't want to share with you. If you ask me it's possible for someone with no special skills to make few thousands dollar within a month just working at home with a home computer?

My answer is: Absolutely YES. Because I have been receiving US Dollar check (see proof) post from USA for the part two years which make me a very steady 4 figures monthly income (some months 5 figures).

You too can sit back and enjoy much more free time working from home.

However, to get seriously involved and make money, these programs may be an investment or fee required. But most of the programs offer a 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.

12 Things You Really Should Know About SEO

From the very beginning of the Internet, the number one challenge which all of us have faced is how to attract qualified visitors to our websites. Throughout the boom years, one of the most popular solutions was to get massive funding, relatively easy to get in those days, and "buy" traffic, by various means.

As an iconoclastic younger developer, with ambitions of beating the "big boys" at their own game, more time than money or the connections to get it, I sought a less capital intensive methodology to achieve the same results. Years of study and rapt attention to the pertinent forums, trying everything that even seemed to make sense (making many mistakes along the way, and learning much from each one), then carefully monitoring the results, has lead to many highly workable tools in our SEO bag of tricks. The outcome of these trial and error methods, (lots of both) lays the foundation of our SEO services and the basis for the ongoing growth of traffic to your website and ours.

The simple fact of the matter is this: Expertise in any other form of writing in no way qualifies one for the type of writing required to optimize a website for the Internet. There are many sites which have less than correct punctuation, grammar, and even spelling which rank #1 in their optimized search phrases. This is not to say that I don't think these things are important, only that to be found in the search engines, they are not the most important consideration.

The flip side of this argument is equally true. Just because someone knows all the ins and outs of all of the search engines, can write algorithms in their sleep, has lunches with Dr. Eric Schmidt and is on a first name basis with Larry Page and Sergey Brin, does not, in any way, make them a writer. All of the writing on this site was done as a collaborative venture between Susan K. Thompson, a professional writer with strong academic credentials and real world experience, in both business and marketing, and myself. Was there a lot of editing and re-write? Yes. Were there disagreements? You bet! Was it worth it? Look at the record.

Emerald Coast Entrepreneur was launched on May 1, 2005 with most site optimization in place and submission to the directories just beginning. With a total monetary investment of less than $100.00, and a time investment, I'd rather not think about, but which approached 300 hours, the site was given a PR5 ranking by Google on it's first update, less than 2 months after launch.

Studies show that over 90% of all online users use search engines to find what they are looking for, whether products/services, or just plain old information.

The following twelve points will, I hope, summarize a philosophy, approach and methodology to the SEO question which is both sound and effective, along with giving some helpful insight into the industry itself.

1. Content. Content. Content. Effective, professional, optimized Copywriting is the single, most important factor in any SEO campaign. Search engines index websites based on the content found on each page of the site. With a thorough understanding of the language and grammatical conventions combined with intensive research, to find and exploit the market focus, one can move a website to the upper echelon of the "SERP's" (Search Engine Results Page) in a methodical as well as ethical manner.

2. Analyze Web Logs. Measure everything, at least twice, and then check again. While I would be the first to say that many of the procedures that make up website optimization are more art than science, one needs to take a very scientific approach to the results of the effort. This is done by methodically keeping a record of, and making an analysis of the sites web logs. There are a number of specialized software which make the job easier but at the bare minimum, one needs to keep a close eye on the site visitors and their activity while on the site. No matter how well planned the strategy, it is largely theoretical until proven by the results, which can only be measured by the logs, and a thorough analysis of their content.

3. No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google, or any other search engine. Those who promise such feats will either optimize for such vague search term phrases as, ("green stunted widgets with purple Polka-dots and icing") that no one will ever likely look for, or they are making a false claim, which they have no intention of keeping, or they have an inside edge at Google, something which they will loose, quickly, when the honest folks at Google find out about it. The other option, that they will take the money and run, is worth mentioning here but I'll be polite.

4. Some things are just plain silly. You don't need to submit your site to 50,000 search engines. Businesses which offer this service are suspect, at best. 85% of the search results on the Internet come from one search engine, which, if you have one link from an established website, or better yet, a directory, will find your site just fine, on it's own. Four (4) search engines account for over 90% of the traffic on the web. As for any supposed benefit which may accrue from being listed in an obscure search engine in Botswana which specializes in safaris to the Kalahari Desert and receives 7 hits per day; well, you figure it out.

5. SEO is not Pay-per-Click. While no one would argue the effectiveness of getting increased traffic and sales, through a well planned, pay-per-click campaign, the fact remains that the conversion rates are generally low and they cease the moment the "pay" stops. With a well planned and executed SEO campaign, while results may take a bit longer, they continue to produce, and in fact grow, long after the work is done and paid for. Quite often we have found that after a thorough optimization of a site, only minor adjustments are needed on an ongoing basis, primarily related to new content and/or new items of sale or service.

6. SEO is not witchcraft, Druidism, shamanism. Neither does it require any special chants, ceremonial fires, or vestments, though some of us do like to howl at the full moon, on occasion. There are no "Top Secret" practices which a reputable SEO can not tell a client, a judge, or his mother, for that matter. The very nature of the Internet has always been cooperative and there is nothing about SEO that can't be learned, with a heavy dose of time and money. A reputable SEO firm will give you an item per item breakdown of just where the money goes. Be wary if you sense a secretive atmosphere or any unwillingness to answer questions. While there are technical points which might take some background to fully understand, if one has a solid overview of the entire situation, a simple explanation should be easy enough to come up with.

7. Do-it-yourself SEO. Yes, you can execute your own SEO campaign and find a reputable SEO firm to help plan and organize it for you. About one half of my own clientele do some part of the actual work themselves, or have their in-house dedicated personnel do it, after discussion of the goals and aims of the business/website, a thorough website analysis, comprehensive search phrase research, and focused instruction on the ways and means of achieving high SERPs. These preliminaries are followed up with a detailed program of suggestions and methods which the client can then implement themselves or hire others to perform. Average savings; 30-40%.

8. Phased Implementation. While many companies spend thousands of dollars per month on Search Engine Optimization, an alternative is available which will pay dividends to you in increased sales and leads without the high initial investment. The most important consideration is to have a reputable firm handle the initial evaluation and suggested optimization planning first. The trial and error method will cost much more, in the long run, with or without the desired result. After studying the plan and establishing a workable budget you may implement the plan as finances allow.

9. Remember the old saying, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." Never was this more true than in the realm of SEO. While concrete and measurable gains will always come from a well thought out and executed optimization strategy, the Internet is a competitive media and we all want to be number one. Accept that a steady upward movement, over time, will place you worlds ahead of a flash followed by a crash.

10. A thought to ponder. At stake, in the race for the top, is the very existence of your website, your business, and quite possibly your reputation. Beware of any "shortcuts" or less than ethical schemes that anyone might suggest to further your business goals. When it's all said and done it is you, the business owner, who bears the responsibility for any company or individual you hire. Insist on knowing exactly what the strategy is and what steps are being performed to implement it. If it seems, in the least, suspicious, ask for and get an explanation. In this case, not only is Ignorance not bliss, it could very well be the beginning of the end for your business.

11. All incoming links are not created equal. Both the relevance to your line of business and website subject matter and the PR value of the incoming link determine how valuable they are to your own PR ranking. With Google starting the trend, nothing new there, and most of the others following close behind, the days of grabbing all the inbound links, in any way possible, are gone. Not only will low ranked and/or irrelevant inbound links not help, they will, in fact, cause a penalty. Link farms, free-for-all link schemes, automated link accumulation software, or any other fad that doesn't carefully screen the links and websites they are coming from will, in the long run, do more harm than good.

12. It's more than just facts and figures. The relationship between an online business and SEO is, perhaps, one of the closest of business relationships. In order to be effective, a SEO must know not only the facts and figures pertaining to the endeavor, but s/he must know something of the dreams and aspirations of the business principals. Things which don't normally come out in a prospectus are often invaluable information when searching for the "right fit" into the complex world of the Internet. My own clients sometimes ask, due to the frequency of my calls and email in the early phases, "Am I your only client?" I usually laugh and say something to the effect that until I know your business almost as well as you do, yes, you are the only one that counts.

He was introduced by a friend, at the University of California at Berkeley, to Usenet some time in 1982, where the idea of a world wide network was just starting to make a buz. The rest, as he says, is history. "I haven't been without a computer, and usually a way to get connected, ever since." Doc was on the design team of the graphical user interface (GUI) for "Veronica", the second database of web documents, and forerunner of our modern search engines, a topic to which he gives constant study and receives numerous requests for consultation from around the world.

How to Make Money Online For Beginners

Making money online these days isn't has hard as it used to be. You don't have to pay a large web developing firm to create a site for you, and you don't have to spend a lot of money marketing either. What you do need though is a plan and a desire to carry it out. Here are the bare boned steps to making money online with your own website.

Decide what your sit is going to be about. Are you going to sell a product or service. Do you already have a brick and mortar business that you would like to expand online? Do you have a passion, a hobby, or skill that you wan to bring to the online world? When you've focused on what your website is going to be about, then your first step is complete.

Create a website. There are plenty of free website plat forms for you to start with. You can go to Google sites, Weebly, Blogger or WordPress. With any one of these sites you can get a free website or blog that has all of the benefits of a full service web host.

Create content. Start writing pages about your business, product, hobby, or whatever your focus happens be. If you want to sell widgets on line, write articles and add pictures of big widgets, small widgets, and what makes your widgets better than the rest. Write interesting and informative articles about widget with equally interesting pictures of widgets. Write about the fact that widgets can be great for use with kids, dogs, and kittens. Become a widget master. Once you have informed your audience about widgets, they will be more apt to buy from you.

Be an affiliate. If you don't have room to store your products, or you don't really have a service to provide, try affiliate marketing. When you sell other peoples products, they will give you a commission on each sale. If your site is a pet site for instance, write articles on your website about different types of dogs that are appropriate for different types of owners. Within the article you can insert text links that sell things like dog treats, dog collars, and dog accessories. When people click on the links and buy the products, you get a commission on each sale.

Market your site. Get your site out there for people to see. Post on forums, use social book marking sites, and paid advertising to reach your audience.

Making money online is not hard, you just have to make up your mind to do it. It doesn't take a huge monetary investment, but it does take time and dedication. Once you've mastered the basics, you can use more advanced skills to increase your earning potential.

How to Make Money With Twitter

If you have been following the news, then you have definitely heard about Twitter. It is a social networking web site, where people can connect, network and chat, all in 140 characters of less.

As a business owner, you are probably asking yourself - can you make money with Twitter? In this article I will show you how you, a business owner, can make money on Twitter.

I have created a 3-step plan to help you make money with Twitter. Here it is:

1. Create An Effective Twitter Profile

A Twitter profile with just a name and nothing else will not help you get results on Twitter. Make sure to add an effective bio to your profile. That way your potential clients will read about you and learn about you as they connect with you.

Don't forget to add your web site link to your profile as well. When you have a link to your web site, your potential clients can visit your web site, learn about you and purchase from you. Sharing your web site also helps you establish yourself further on Twitter.

2. Connect With Your Potential Clients

If you want to make money on Twitter, it is extremely important who you connect there with. If you are connecting with people randomly, then you are not going to get the results you are looking for.

Make sure to connect with people in your target market, who are interested in your products and services. The more people in your target market know you, the easier it will be for you to sell more of your products and services.

3. Share With People In Your Target Market

Your potential clients will not be able to buy from you unless they know what you are selling. Make sure to share with people on Twitter about your products and services.

But don't just share about them. Make sure to also share tips, ideas and information that your target market is interested in. That way your target market will learn from you and will become interested in your products and services.

Making Money of Your Website by Selling Banner Advertising

There are many ways for webmasters to make money of their websites, but the most profitable of all is selling banner spots, many websites are using this method as their main income source generating thousands of dollars every month. By placing banner ads at prominent positions on your site you can earn big money without the need of middle-man companies like AdSense, AdBrite and others.

How does it Work?

To be able to sell banner advertising spots your site needs to have a history of traffic and maintain a certain amount of daily visitors. For new websites this might not be a good monetization option. Once you decide to start, the first thing you have to do is to promote your advertising packages, the best places to do this are webmaster forums such as DigitalPoint and SitePoint. After an advertiser buys banner space you just need to place the banner on your website and charge per week or month for that spot.

How to determine the prices?

There are a number of different options. The first method is to charge a flat rate, for example you can charge $50 a month for each spot.

The second method is CPM (Cost per 1,000 impressions), which is determined by the number of times the banner is showed on your website. This option should only be used by sites getting hundreds of thousands of visitors monthly.

Another method is CPC (Cost per click); in this case the advertiser pays for the number of visitors that click the ad. For example you can charge $0.25 a click.

Managing your advertising campaigns

If you decide to sell advertising at a flat rate you only need a PayPal account, each time an advertiser decides to purchase a spot he is directed to the online payment form. In the case you prefer the CPC or CPM methods you will need special software to manage impressions and clicks, one of the best free options is OpenX.

That's pretty much all you need to know before starting.
