Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
CNN has an article on how boggers are now on the cusp of making big bucks for their efforts. For example, Michael Arrington of Techcrunch pulls in $60,000 in advertising revenues each MONTH!
Get to work folks. We all can get in on this one.
the Ontok Highlighter only highlights words in your page that are either product-related or topically related to the page being highlighted. This results in ads so well-matched that your visitors will actually find them useful.
There’s a real Catch-22 involved in starting up an internet forum: people won’t participate unless there are people participating.
So how do you get started? One way is to create a few dummy accounts, then log on and write a bunch of posts under different names.
Another suggestion is to lean on your friends and family to help you get started.
You also can offer prizes—offer one for the best post of the month; for the post that creates the most replies; or for a random post.
As a last ditch effort, you could use a service like Forumshock For what seems to me to be a very reasonable price, Forumshock promises that quality posts will be made to your forum.
They seem like such little things, but fonts may have a big impact on your earnings. The right font can convey messages to your readers that can’t be conveyed with mere words or pictures.
But which one to use.
Fortunately, a study has been conducted on the usability of various fonts. The psychology department at Wichita State has determined that the most preferred fonts were Courier, Comic, Verdana, Georgia, and Times.
If you don’t already have business cards for your site, you should get some immediately.
I use my business cards to promote the site in a variety of ways.
The first is the most obvious: I hand them out to friends, business associates, and people that I meet. Sometimes I hand over a couple and ask them to pass one on.
I also will take them with me in my wallet and stick them on any community bulletin boards that I come across. Quite often grocery stores, banks, libraries and other high traffic areas have bulletin boards for people to post notices on.
Since my principal site is about a hobby, I take a bunch with me when I go to a hobby show. I leave them lying on counters, tables, bathroom sinks, and anywhere else where a hobbyist is likely to be.
If you know the show’s organizers, ask if you can put your cards on the registration desk for people to pick up when they get all the rest of their convention goodies.
The best thing is that you can get started by getting business cars for free. A company called VistaPrint offers 250 free full color cards for you to get started. They’re great.
