Because even for some competitive keywords, you can see domain names with a related keyword has a better chance of having higher search rankings.

Assume that you managed to build a successful website in a year or so. But what you would feel about that now? You have the authority in free WordPress themes keyword but it really limits the potential of your website. You may still add content related to Blogger and Joomla themes. But even if you do so, you know that people who are visiting your website don’t look for other themes rather than free WordPress themes. So what has happened here? You have limited your potential by choosing a domain name that limits the future growth of the website. Also it seriously limits your money making potential from that particular website if that’s what you are looking for.

There are occasions that this keyword rich domain names works. For an example if you target a certain product, then using the main keyword in your domain name is a good idea. But if you are looking to build a website that may expand later, then it is wise to select a domain name that addresses a wider audience. So thinking big is always good, isn’t it?

If you have a good website it is one of the best ways to promote your items. If you already haven’t, you had better to create a blog or website. It is totally free to start a blog at Blogger.com or WordPress.com. Blogger is very easy to use than WordPress.

This is what many people do when they haven’t their own website. Write good articles and submit them to free article directories with a higher traffic and exposure. eZinearticles.com, Goarticles.com, Articlebase.com, etc. are some of the best for this purpose. I hope to give a good list of free article directories soon.

6.3 – Social Networking

Social networking is another great and easy way to promote your affiliate products. But the problem with social traffic is that their conversion rate is very low. In other words people in these networks are rarely buy products from advertisers. Also they rarely click on ads. But if you can manage to get lot of traffic and develop a good relationship with them, then you can increase your affiliate sales. Twitter.com, Facebook.com, Myspace.com, etc. are among the leading social networks on Internet. Also these three websites have the most number of users on internet than any other social networking website. Social networking promotion methods are different from one website to another. Simply what you can do here is to give some useful information related to your products and include links to your products without spamming them. Never overuse promotion and you will be banned from those websites.

6.4 – Video Sharing websites

Video sharing websites like Youtube.com are becoming great resources for those who are looking for quick and easy ways to generate traffic to their websites and affiliate products. Upload great looking videos and include links to your products pages. You can use domain redirections as in the case of affiliate marketing to direct your visitors to affiliate products.

Using forums is also one of the best ways to promote your products and make money in a quick time. When you select forums for promoting affiliate products make sure that they have the following features for a better success.

  • Related to your niche
  • Support signature links (better if they allow affiliate links)
  • Have a higher traffic
  • Reputed among the people (Some forums like Digitalpoint.com are getting bad reviews. You had better not to use such forums)

Write informational posts that attracts the readers of the forum. Include your signature link at the bottom of the post. Write an attractive signature links that attracts clicks. Offering a free product is one successful strategy to get clicks and attract visitors to your site. Send them to an auto responder box and offer the free product once they subscribed to your email list. Later you can send your affiliate product links with useful information for them.

  4. Select best selling products (But there are some points to think too!) – If your product is not selling it is worthless. So check at amazon.com and ebay.com.

2. What is Affiliate Marketing?

First let’s understand what is affiliate marketing? Imagine when you surfing a website (Say this is website A) you see an attractive ad about a mobile phone. Then you click on that ad and then you will be taken to a web site (Say this is website B) that sells the mobile phone. The mobile phone is very interesting so you decide to buy it. Let’s say that you have paid $100 for the mobile phone. Do you think that the ‘website B’ get the whole advantage of this deal. No! If the commission was 25% ‘website B’ earns only $75 for the deal and they will pay $25 to ‘website A’. The reason is the customer was sent to ‘website B’ (seller) by ‘website A’ which is the affiliate marketer. Therefore seller pays a commission to affiliate marketer as an appreciation to sending potential customers to his website. Then affiliate marketer earns commissions by doing almost nothing but sending customers to the seller’s website.

If you are a blogger who is making money with Google Adsense or similar PPC advertising methods, it may need to have several hundred visitors to earn $25 from Adsense. If you are an affiliate marketer you earn $25 from just one successful sale in the above example.

That is why affiliate marketing is excellent to start making big bucks. If you can send 2 such customers a day who buy phones, you will earn easily $1500 in the end of the month.

One of the biggest issues is to select the trusted companies that really worth your time. Make sure to read about each website you are expecting to join by using a search engine. If you are going to Cashcrate.com then search Google for a search term like this.

  1. Cashcrate.com reviews
  2. Is Cahscrate.com is scam
  3. Cashcrate scam

Then you can assure that the website is good enough to join and take some surveys.

Make Money Uploading Files and Videos

This might be something that you are already doing and this is one of the best ways for teens to make money. There are websites that pay you when someone downloads a file uploaded by you. Earning scale is not large. Normally you will earn about $1-10 for each 1000 downloads of your files. But let’s imagine that you do it in mass scale. If you have 1000 files that each are downloaded 100 times a month. Then all your files are downloaded 100,000 in each month and you have the potential of earning $1000 if they pay $10 for each 1000 downloads. If you use forums and/or have a great website related to downloading this will be a better option for you. Here are some of the best websites for this.

Paid to Click Programs

There is another popular type of websites called paid to click or known as Bux sites. Once joined you have to do is click ads daily they give you. For each click you will get paid a very small amount like $0.005 – 0.01. Here the strategy is to get more referrals. Referrals mean those who click under you as you click ads. For each their click, you will get paid. If you want to earn some good amount you need to buy their memberships. It may cost $20-$90 or higher depending on the website.

For an example you can buy a Golden account from Neobux.com for $90 for a period of one year. Neobux is the most trusted and most popular program in this type. Most of these are scam websites. So find Google to make sure they are a good website before joining them. You can refer PTCInvestigations.Blogspot.com before joining such a website. I must say you can’t get rich with these programs. But if you follow a good strategy and buy the membership you can earn a good monthly income with only five minutes of work for each day. For an example you can earn if you buy a Neobux Ultimate membership for $890 and 5000 referrals, you have the potential of earning around $1000 per month.

So this is a good option you may consider. This is one of the best ways for teenagers and kids to make money. Because you don’t need any special skills or knowledge for this.
