If you have been involved in online promotion or marketing for any length of time, then I am sure you have seen one of those countless ads or emails that boast how they just made thousands of dollars without using Google, or by working from home in their spare time, or by the selling of something; and because they are making so much money they want to sell this “fool proof” marketing plan to you.
In case you were unaware, these so called fool proof, bullet proof, and instant money makers as the scammer behind them want to believe are nothing more than grass roots pons schemes aimed at taking your money and giving you nothing in return but some ideas, methods or marketing plans wrapped around their so called million dollar program. The real end result is their programs and plans only work as long as people continue to throw their money away on them!
Ok so now the question is how do you make money with online marketing. Well the answer to that question depends on what type of marketing you are currently involved in or want to make money with.
Generally there are two types of marketing:
- Marketing promotion to sell products or services
- Money marketing using AdSense, or affiliate programs
If you are currently engaged in the promotion of goods or services from your website or blog, then you are looking for targeted potential customer who need your goods or services. Your focus should be in presenting your offerings with useful keyword and action rich content pages that offer helpful information and resources to your potential customers rather than content that is all about “buy now” or aimed at just making sales.
Online users have so many options when it comes to making purchases via the internet that in order to be both successful and profitable your site needs to stand out and above your competitors, and one of the easiest ways to do that is by giving your customers what they want with detailed and useful content that reinforces benefit.
Money blogging is by far on of the most profitable ways to make money online than probably any other online business because you are not really selling any product or service, but merely posting large quantities of keyword rich relevant and useful content that has either affiliate links, AdSense or other PPC ads that users will click to get more information or details on a subject that catches their eye or interests them.
The start up costs of money blogging is relatively low and typically for under $100 you can have a site up and running and making a steady flow of cash.
Each of the aforementioned marketing models require different approaches in promotion, but the core of both evolve around sound SEO elements, quality content and diligent attention to daily and long term promotion. A new or start up site generally takes more time to realizing profit, but once your marketing plan is in action your focus can then be aimed at maintaining your marketing position within the SERPs and your other promotion venues.
