Furthermore, the quality of clicks is affected by who see your ads. People who spend a lot of time every day on Facebook generate a lot of impressions to Facebook, and consequently these users are less receptive to your ads since they see a lot of ads all the time.
Not to mention, they take a lot more work and I’m called the “lazy deadbeat” for a reason. The reason is I’m lazy, but don’t confuse that with average work…because as you can see I created an amazing money circle!
Link to your landing page directly. Capture user’s email address, and start building relationship with them. Then, recommend your offer, and when a sale is made, you earn about $26.14 or more depending on the product cost.
Hey Amy–great informative post, here. I am going to look into a few of these and choose wisely. I want to make sure I am building a really solid readership first before bombarding people with ads, but I think your explanation was SPOT ON. Thanks for that. And much agreed on the comment above–there are some sites I don’t even BOTHER with b/c I just feel like all they do is post various links so they make a profit. Some to the point where I’m like, “wheres the CONTENT????” Even pioneer woman didn’t get to where she is if the content wasn’t there. People aren’t dumb–they can smell a scam a mile away.
This way you’ll give Facebook time to learn the types of people who are converting into customers on your site even when they come from other marketing channels. If Facebook hasn’t tracked any conversion on your site yet, they’re going to have trouble optimizing your campaign for conversions.
On the other hand, they may need longer to think about it. Perhaps they’re waiting for payday, or they’re not quite sure yet whether they prefer the blue one that they also spotted while browsing around the advertiser’s site. They may go away and come back in a couple of weeks’ time, no longer able to resist the urge to blow their wages on a better board.
For example, the content on Super Weddings is useful whether you’re organizing a wedding today or next year. All the content on the site is created accordingly. To make things easier for the audience, it is separated into categories to make it very convenient for the reader to find what they’re looking for. This, of course, is also very good for SEO.
Of course, there’s a higher price per product and your margins are lower, but you’re able to start your online store with little more than a Shopify theme and some hosted images of your products. When a customer makes a purchase, you in turn buy the product from your supplier who then ships it directly to your customer.
Is your closet bursting with clothes you’re simply not wearing anymore? Rather than take them to a local thrift or consignment store, you can make money online by renting to selling your clothes. Check out sites like Tradesy, SnapGoods.com, Loanables.com, and RentNotBuy.com.
The ad above uses a testimonial to sell the product. If you’re trying to get leads, use phrases like “join 100,000 people who’ve already said yes.” This shows people new to your brand that other people are using it and enjoying it. As a result, potential customers are more likely to want to try your product.
As an example, if you are a writer, at an average rate of $20/500 words, it will take you just 2,500 words, or 5 blog posts to hit the $100 mark. A skilled writer can easily write at least 500 words/hour. This means you can reach your target figure within 5 hours of work every day.
Look for new products that you think you can market online. Browse through various affiliate sites. Look for new businesses that have recently welcomed affiliates and, if they’re offering something you think you can market well, partner up with them.
Directors for TV and film are always on the hunt for houses to film in. For instance, a scene for Coronation Street was recently filmed in the student house one of the Save the Student editors used to live in!
Great design should amplify, not distract. A strong design does not have to be large. It can be subtle and deliver a message much more efficiently. In the era of simplicity, this is very often the case.
You know your audience best so experiment with different features until you find the combination that leads to the most conversions, click-throughs, or sign-ups. Keep in mind that your audience will likely watch your video without sound so make sure that the images and video you use are easy to understand. For example, use the Legend app to add a little text to further clarify your message.
Thanks, Anna! That’s another great tip! I have several friends who’ve started their own small photography businesses and make some nice cash on the side of their jobs that way. I’ll have to write about photography as a side hustle soon!
Automate what you can. There are plenty of digital marketing tools available. Again, some of them will require you to make an investment, but if it gives you more free time to build your business, then the return on investment should be positive.
This technique works both ways. You can either target niche interests and common behaviors, or target users who share broad interests and exhibit highly specific behaviors. For example, you could create a target audience of users who own small businesses – a very broad audience – but who are also interested in digital marketing conferences, have expressed an interest in free software trials, or have downloaded certain types of content.
iStockPhoto – Royalty free stock photos, vector art illustrations, stock footage and audio for print and use on websites and presentations. You get 20% of the total price for images between $1 to $20, and 40% if you sell your images only on their site.
Mastering your Facebook targeting strategy gets you in front of very specific and often motivated segments of your audience, on the network where Americans religiously spend an average of 40 minutes of their day. Here are a few ridiculously powerful Facebook ad targeting strategies you probably haven’t heard of.
For example: when I recently released my 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Workbook I also give people an opportunity to promote the workbook with an affiliate program whereby they could earn a 40% commission for each sale. When you sign up to become an affiliate you are given a special code unique to you that enables you to promote the workbook and make $7.98 per sale. The top affiliates earned over $2000 in the first few weeks after launch through these commissions.
Good people cost good money, period. If you hire people on the cheap they will almost always lack of experience or judgement to make a great ebook. So the 2 solutions are 1- pay good money for your writers, 2- accept that you need to heavily edit what you receive and that it will take a bunch of work anyway.
