Making Your Extra Money Online

Aug 17, 2007
There are some really great ways to make some good money online and it isn't just a dream. You will have to design a web page that will draw a steady and growing stream of highly targeted traffic.

Once you have accomplished this goal it is now time to offer products and/or services to your avid consumers. They are paying close attention to your site and now they want more.

The first challenge you will face will be converting your visitors into buyers. This is the focus no matter if they are buying a product directly from you or an affiliate product.

People always visit sites and are looking for something free. To help persuade your visitors to consider buying anything you will have to make advertising like the content that attracted them to the site in the first place.

Two of the best ways to turn your traffic to cash with out having to develop or promote a product of your own are attracting paid advertising and affiliate products.

Attracting paid advertising can be done with great success when your site is getting a lot of visitors interested in a specific topic. You will be able to sell ad space to businesses that have related products. The business will pay you a specified amount to be linked on your site.

To make any real good money you have to have many advertisers and many web pages. Many of the old advertising schemes don't generate the high business they used to and so the fee is much smaller now than it was in the past. If you are not interested in having to search out advertisers that would possibly be interested in your market. Then go Google.

Google's AdSense program is a great market place. It evaluates the content on your site and serves ads it thinks will be of interest to your readers. When someone clicks on the ad Google gets a fee from the company and then pays you a portion of it. This is an easy hands free moneymaker. This will definitely give you some cash from your site traffic.

Ad brokering companies offer similar services. Companies like Real Media and Burst Media are popular companies who offer these services. Make sure to look at the terms and conditions of any company because they all are different.

Promoting affiliate products is a fabulous way to make good money on line and very easy to set up. This is basically a no-risk partnership between you and the product producer. You will want to find a product that is related to what your site content is about. You will promote this product on your site and every time one of your visitors buys the product you will get a percentage of the sale.

When you sign up for the affiliate program you are issued a special affiliate URL that tracks the visitors you send to the company's web page. If sales are generated from the people sent on your URL code then you get paid.
