Working after retirement

Blogs=Money


Monetizing your website or blog using affiliate links can be very profitable. If you have a targeted site with traffic - it is a great way to send readers to related sites and earn money from it. It is, however tedious to set it up. You have to search for products/services that your viewers would be interested in, then sign up to be an affiliate and insert the code on your website. On a good ...

I talk a lot about monetizing websites with advertising. That's what I "do". In the US, the FTC are considering stronger regulations for online advertising. Some feel ads on websites are intrusive and annoying. Sometimes I think that too, but then I look at my average CTR. (Click Thru Rate). That is how many visitors click on the Google ads I display on my sites. My average is around 10%, but on some sites it ...

Previously I have described different ways to monetize a blog. There are basically two ways (or both):

1. Google's AdSense

2. Affiliate commissions

Which is better? To start, it is much easier to start with AdSense. You just apply, get approved and add some code to your site. To be an affiliate, you need to sign up for several affiliate offers sites and can be a little complex.

Google is now indexing videos in a big way. Using video on websites as a marketing tool is just starting. Especially professional services firms such as lawyers are starting to record short (1-2 min) videos of themselves talking about their services. It works. As with blogs - videos are now quickly indexed by search engines and show up at the top of results listings. This is good news. Because..???

Because it opens up a ...

When you set up a website/blog to sell something, pitch your service or rely in advertising revenues - there's only one thing you need - visitors. Without them you have nothing. However, not all visitors are alike. I know some keyword tricks that can get a steady stream of visitors to a site. But they get there sort of by mistake so the number of visitors being interested enough in the site to take some ...

Why don't most bloggers make money? Because they are bloggers, not internet marketers. Millions of blogs out there, people wanting to share their thoughts and knowledge. Many are in it for the exposure, ego and being recognized. You know by now that one of the emotional needs of people is to be recognized. Blogging gives people the illusion of being recognized. In my research I go though hundreds of blogs a week just to see ...

I am creating a blog for a Realtor who needs traffic to her website. Business is slow, so any lead generation is welcomed. She works in Vancouver, BC so we thought a blog about life in Vancouver would work. In french. That's a niche blog. She will write about Vancouver in general, not just real estate. Which in turn should drive some traffic - and in her blog she's subtly tells people she is a ...

If you can surf the web, do email and write using a word processing program like Word you are almost there. To set up a blog you need to know a few more things, although you can have someone set one up for you (like me) and then there is no need to learn stuff like servers, Wordpress, SEO and so on.

The more I think about the more creating a revenue-producing blog makes sense to me - for some retirees anyway. So I'll write more about this and I am planning a complete guide to creating a money-making blog. Sign up for my newsletter to stay on top of this.

Most retired people know their way around a computer. They do email and surf the web. Many handle their investments and banking on-line and some ...
