Do I Make My Money Online
Where Do I Make My Money Online
I am asked all the time: Where do you make your money with internet
marketing? My business is still young and growing but I’ve
discovered several sources of income that work well. Most people
are familiar with Adsense and Chitika eminimalls, and both advertising
services are quite profitable.
My affiliate income is the most profitable part of my business,
and it’s broken into two components: Information products
(eBooks, lessons, Clickbank), and hard good sales. I am an affiliate
for a number of companies including Amazon, Best Buys, Ace Hardware,
and several more.
My volume with the hard goods is considerably higher than with
Clickbank, but since my commission rate is low (3% - 5%) my earning
per sale are low. To be successful I’ve broken each one of
these affiliate program into small product groups, and developed
specialized sites to promote and sell just these groups.
I have one site that sells just DVD’s and CD’s from
Amazon, and another that sells hardware from ACE and so on. I like
this business because it seems more legitimate to me, and I come
from a hard goods background.
Information products such as those offered by Clickbank are not
as easy to sell, but they can be extremely profitable due to the
high commission rates. In many cases I am making a 50% to 75% commission.
A few sales a day can add up to a nice little income stream.
Now take all these income streams and add them together. For me
25 sites making $15 a day adds up to a nice income. But who has
the time to set up so many sites? I know people that have way more
sites than I do and it is possible to create and maintain a number
of sites if you do it properly.
I am using Wordpress Blogs to market many products because they
are easy to set up, and easier to maintain. I just post a new item
everyday at each blog and I use RSS feeds and Technorati tags to
let people know I’m posting new stuff. When someone comes
to the blog from one of these sources I have an opportunity to redirect
them to the main store.
My products are held in this store, so it’s just a matter
to setting up multiple storefronts on one site and directing people
to the appropriate storefront from the blog for more information.
For selling information products I do the same thing, but CBMall
is my storefront. CBMall makes it easy to manage over 10,000 information
Work smart, be diversified and maintain. A little bit every day
from a multitude of sources adds up to a nice little internet business.
