Making Money From Your Traffic

In this article we’re going to look at a few ways that you can use your traffic to make some money online. It is important to maximize the money you make from your traffic or else it is really just a waste of time.

Finding The Best Option For You

A lot of people spend all of their time getting traffic to their web site. Well, that’s a great thing if you have your web site set up right, if not, it can be a disaster. Many people set up a website and put Google Adsense on it. Then they just drive traffic to it, they don’t make enough money and before they know it, they are back to their day job.

Their problem might not be that they didn’t get enough traffic. You must use your traffic to make money properly. You need to do more than just rely on Adsense. You need to experiment with both Adsense and affiliate links and find out what works better and use that or if it works best to do both, then do it.

Create Your Own Products to Sell

Go ahead and create your own information products to sell. You will always make more money from selling a product that from the few clicks you will get on Adsense links. Different things work for different people and you need to find out what is most profitable for you. Sometimes when using Adsense on your site something as simple as changing the placement of the ads can increase your click through exponentially.

Build A Mailing List

One thing that you absolutely have to do is start building your mailing list. You’ve probably heard the money is in the list so many times – most people have, but that doesn’t mean that they do it. People say it, because it works. The money really is in the list (and of course in the relationship you have with your subscribers) and if you don’t set up a place on your web site for people to sign up for your list, you’re letting a lot of people leave without getting anything out of them. They may not click on your ads or buy your product, but they might sign up for your list.

Why would they sign up? You need to give them an incentive to sign up. Write an information product and give it to them for free, if they sign up. Run a newsletter where you send them a free issue each month. If you don’t want to do that, then find a product that you can acquire and give away for free.

Another thing to keep in mind, and another reason selling your own product is so great is that you can have people sign up for your mailing list before they download. You can give them an option where they don’t have to sign up to get your product, but you will get a lot of people who will.

These are the best ways to use your traffic to make money, the right way. Go to www.aweber.com, up for an account and start building your list! You can get a $1 trial of Aweber for a limited time which is a great opportunity to try it out.
