How To Make Your Blog Pay Your Bills


34SP.com is proud to present this great piece on how to make money from your blog. It was written for us by Ms. Kitty Lusby who we met recently at WordCamp Las Vegas. Kitty is an accomplished writer and blogger and shares her expertise frequently online. We hope that it gives you a few new ideas on how to drive additional traffic to your website and how to then earn money from those visitors.

 

My Story

When I decided to become a professional blogger, people thought I was crazy.

It’s not even a real career, they’d say.

Or, sometimes:

You can’t make money from a blog. I’m sure there are some REAL jobs out there that will pay you to write.

Nobody believed I knew how to make money online…

But here’s what happened:

Six months later, I was making enough money as a pro blogger to support myself. Blogging is now my full time career, and I’ve never looked back.

The truth is, when I started out, I had no idea how to make money as a blogger.

I wanted to take control of my income, since working “real” jobs in the mortgage industry meant that my paycheck, and therefore my livelihood, was subject to the whims of industry regulations, economic swings, and corporate politics.

That wasn’t my idea of a great lifestyle.

Writing had always been my personal escape – why couldn’t it be my career? Unfortunately for me, I didn’t know a single trick for monetizing a blog, and I was clueless about how to build blog traffic. All I knew was that some people were doing this full time and making money, and if those people could do it, then there was no reason I couldn’t do it to.

It’s been a long road, but I’ve learned a lot since those early days, and I continue to learn today. While I can’t exactly teach you everything I know in this one post, I can help you get a solid start towards blogging as a career.

You can start making money today.

This information isn’t just for new bloggers, either:

Whether you’re an experienced writer who wants to know how to start making money from your craft, you’re already making money and want to maximize that income, or you’re an entrepreneur who needs to know how to use a blog as a business tool, you’ll find something of value here.

 

How To Use This Guide

Successful bloggers diversify their income, meaning they make money from a variety of different sources.

Your blog will bring in multiple income streams if you’re willing to put forth the effort to build it, and as you grow your audience and hone your skills, you’ll make more money. To give a sense of that progression, the various blog income sources listed here are grouped like this:

Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced

Don’t let the labels fool you, though. Even the beginner methods can bring a serious income if you get good at them. Just because something is more difficult doesn’t necessarily mean it pays better.

This guide is meant to help you get started towards making money on the internet through blogging, so we’re not going into too much detail. Use this post to help you determine the methods you’ll use to start making money immediately, and identify anything you’d like to start working towards. Each item discussed will go over the pros and cons of the individual method, as well as give you some blogging tips that will help you on your way.

 

How To Make Money Blogging – Before You Begin

-If you’re looking for information on how to start a blog for profit, either as a career path or just as a supplement to your primary income, you need traffic to see results. Posting on a schedule, reading and commenting on other people’s blogs, and writing great content are Blogging 101: the first steps towards building a following. Even after your blog has millions of readers, those three things will remain key to your blogging success.

-Many people use blogs as sort of a virtual journal, writing about whatever they’re thinking and feeling on a given day. While that’s a great use of the medium, and you’ll hone your writing skills and make new friends, it’s not a good model if you want to blog for a living. Focus your content on a specific subject, brand, or idea, then stick to it.

-There is no such thing as a blog “for everybody.” Know what kind of audience you’re writing for. The more specific you can be when focusing on an audience, the bigger your audience will grow, because you’re speaking their language and giving them something they want to read.

With those three things in mind, you’re ready to start making money, and you can see that profit today.

Beginner

 

Affiliate Marketing

As soon as you start your blog, you can begin using affiliate marketing to make money. Affiliate marketing means including links to products and services that other people sell, and every time one of your readers clicks through that link and purchases something from that third party, you’re paid a commission.

For example, if you click this link and buy a boat, I’ll make a commission. That link is meant to just be an example, but if you DO buy the boat, it would make my day.

At the very least, you should sign up for the Amazon affiliate marketing program (click here to go to their site) since they have such a wide variety of products you could potentially market. There are a lot of affiliate programs out there, and you can use more than one. Just make sure that you’re marketing products your readers would appreciate and actually want to buy.

Pros:

  • Low cost, high profit: It’s free to get started as an affiliate marketer, and if you’re good at it, you can make a lot of money.
  • You’re not responsible for product or inventory management. All you have to do is provide a link and get people to click on it.
  • It’s super easy to start up as an affiliate marketer, and you can make money within a few hours of deciding to get started.
  • You don’t need any experience or references to get started. You can begin the same day you set up your blog.
  • Your communication and marketing skills are going to get much better as you try new things and learn.

 

Cons:

  • There are a few scammers out there, but if you only deal with reputable companies and you’re smart about it, you should be fine.
  • The income you’ll make starting out will probably be minimal until you build your skills and your following.
  • Unless you’re already a marketing genius, you’ll need to put forth a lot of time and effort learning to be effective in order to make a large income.

 

Tips:

  • If you need to buy something, buy it through your affiliate links. Think of it as shopping in a store you own and getting the wholesale discount.
  • Instead of focusing on sales techniques, focus on building great relationships with your readers so that they’ll trust you and be more likely to click on your links.
  • Choose appropriate products for your readership. Don’t try to market adult diapers if your audience is young men who are into skate culture.
  • If you’ve been blogging for a while and you decide to start affiliate marketing, go through your old posts and add affiliate links to those, too.
  • Let your readers know that you make money when they buy products through the links in your posts. If you’ve built a relationship with them, they’ll be more likely to buy…and if you don’t tell them, they’ll still assume you’re making a profit on those products and they’ll feel like you’ve lied to them or tried to trick them.
  • Not every post can be a sales post. Try to keep affiliate marketing posts to a minimum – less than 1 out of every 3 posts should be marketing, and even that’s a lot. For a business, your blog should have no more than 1 marketing post for every 7 that you release. Most of your content should be interesting or valuable without asking anyone to do or buy anything.

Display Ads

These are the banner ads you see in the side margins or at the top and bottom of posts on most widely followed blogs.

Basically, display ads fall into two categories:

Ad networks like the ever-popular Google Adsense are a low-maintenance solution where an agency acts as an intermediary between your website and advertisers to help you sell the space on your website.

Private ads are the same thing, except there’s no middle man – you connect directly with potential advertisers yourself.

Most people, beginners especially, use agencies because it’s easier, even though your profit will be slightly less than if you worked directly with advertisers.

You can monetize your blog without ads if you prefer. Some bloggers refuse to use advertising widgets at all, and that’s fine. In the world of blogging, everything is optional.

Pros:

  • It’s an easy, low maintenance way to make money, and you don’t have to do much to maintain it.
  • Signing up with an agency is simple enough that a complete novice can do it.
  • Experimenting to get better results is easy, and you won’t wreck your content by changing ad placement or the type of ads that run.
  • You can start small and build to huge incomes as your blog grows.

 

Cons:

  • If you expect a big income, you need to have big traffic numbers.
  • Too many ads makes your site feel spammy and can turn off your readership.
  • You don’t have control over the external links. If an ad links to a malicious site, it affects your credibility, though this is uncommon.
  • If you’re using an agency, you have little control over what your site promotes. If you have strong moral opinions, this could be a problem.
  • The more ads are on a site, the less effective each one is. You’ll need to find a balance that works for you.

 

Tips:

  • If you’re going to sell ads, especially if you’re selling directly to advertisers without an agency, never leave adspace blank with an “advertise here” message. It makes it look like your site isn’t worth advertising on. Instead, fill the space with an ad for your own products, an affiliate link, or with other advertiser’s banners.
  • If you want to use an agency, here are a list of companies you might try: Google Adsense; Blogads; BlogHer; Beacon Ads; Federated Media; Sovrn; Media.net; Rivit.

Intermediate

 

Product and Service Sales

As obvious as it seems, you can make money by selling things.

For those with a traditional business background, or for businesses who are using blogging as part of their outreach program, selling your products and services might be your primary income stream for your blog. In fact, a lot of people start blogs specifically to sell their products. It’s a fantastic business model.

Don’t limit yourself to physical goods, either: one of the great things about the marketplace today is the availability and popularity of purely digital products, like ebooks, online courses, and premium entertainment content. This is an opportunity to be really creative!

Pros:

  • There’s no limit to profit potential, especially with digital products that have very little associated cost.
  • If you’re crafty, this can be a good way to market your handmade goods.
  • You get all the benefits of a traditional store, but you’re working out of your own home.
  • The blog enables you to reach a larger audience than a traditional store would.

 

Cons:

  • Success in sales is a full-time (and then some) job.
  • If your focus is blogging, not sales, then selling products on your blog can detract from that. Your blog might become an online store.
  • The skills required to succeed in online selling are different than the skills you develop as a blogger. It’s a new business to learn.
  • Sales of physical products require inventory management and shipping, and there are costs involved.

 

Tips:

  • If you know you want to sell products on your blog, start with affiliate marketing first and build your skills. Later, you can use affiliate links AND sell your own inventory for best results.
  • Make sure that your blog and your products are both directed at the same audience. For example, if you know that in 1 year you’re going to write a weight loss book and sell it online, tailor your blog to attract people who buy weight loss books.
  • Selling access to premium content, or selling subscriptions to certain content or digital products, creates an ongoing income that doesn’t require much maintenance.
  • It’s not quite the same as selling to your audience, but you might also consider selling some of your photography as stock. You can learn more about selling stock photography at iStockPhoto.

Freelancing

Instead of working for an employer at an hourly rate, freelancers complete specific jobs for a portfolio of clients and are paid for completing that job.

Sometimes you’ll pick up a one-time assignment for a company, but more often, freelancers form relationships with a core group of businesses that regularly enlist their services. If you’re diligent, you can find a variety of freelance jobs in blogging, social media marketing, and other types of writing and digital services.

Freelancing can be an income in itself. It depends on what you’re trying to accomplish.

Pros:

  • Legitimate freelance jobs pay more than the same job at an hourly rate. If you select your clients carefully and work full time at it, you can earn a significant income.
  • Researching and writing about a variety of topics is fun and interesting.
  • Many paid blogging opportunities allow you to byline, including your name, a brief description, and a link to your website with the article. This can be used to expand your personal brand.
  • Because you’re getting honest feedback from other people, your writing skills will get better much faster than if you only worked alone.
  • You’re building a reputation as a blogger and a professional.

 

Cons:

  • Successful freelancing requires some business savvy to accomplish.
  • It’s time consuming. When you’re new, you’ll do a lot of work for little pay.
  • Working with clients can be challenging. Some of them are better than others.
  • There are a lot of low-paying jobs out there, and if you take them, you’re essentially wasting your time.
  • You need to be a proficient blogger with a portfolio of good content before you start looking for clients.

 

Tips:

  • If you decide to start freelancing, go through your blog and improve your old posts. Clients will be looking through your content to see if you’re consistently good.
  • Read a lot of really good blogs to get a feel for the style of writing that works best for you and your clients. You’ll need to be more flexible as a freelancer.
  • Once you build your skill and you know you’re good, know what you’re worth. Don’t take clients that pay $10 per post, and don’t be afraid to ask for more. Bonus tip: If you’re asking for higher pay than what’s listed, offer to complete an assignment for them and let them see it before they decide whether or not they want to publish it at the rate you requested. If you’re as good as you think you are, you’ll get paid for your work.
  • It’s okay to do a little bit of guest blogging (writing bylined posts on other blogs without being paid) to build your portfolio, but don’t waste too much time doing work that doesn’t pay.
  • If a client asks you to ghostwrite a post (you write it but somebody else’s name is on it) the industry standard is that they should pay extra.

Paid Promotions – Sponsored and Underwritten Content

This is a little more advanced than the other topics in this category, but you can get started when you’re fairly new.

There are a variety of ways that you might get paid for writing specific content on your blog, but mostly you can divide it into two groups:

Sponsored posts are posts on your blog that you write in conjunction with a business who is paying you to write it. Sometimes, they’ll give you a specific topic, and sometimes they’ll give you the actual completed content.

Underwritten posts are your content, whatever you would normally write, and a company pays to include a note like “This post is brought to you by 34SP.com!”

Pros:

  • If you’ve built a big following, these types of posts can pay a lot.
  • They don’t require that much extra work. You’re already putting content on your blog, and now someone is paying you for it.
  • It’s a natural cure for writer’s block. Someone else’s ideas are ending up on your blog.
  • If the company is smart, they’ll heavily promote the post, so you’ll see a spike in traffic.

 

Cons:

  • Too many sponsored and underwritten posts will turn your readers off fast. Use sparingly.
  • You’ll probably need to learn how to give a sales pitch in order to land a deal with a company who will pay you to post.
  • This works best for established bloggers, though you can find some smaller businesses who will sponsor content when your blog is just beginning to grow.

 

Tips:

  • You MUST tell your readers that a post is sponsored or underwritten. First of all, the company is paying you to do that, and second of all, your readers trust you and they’ll want to know if you were paid to recommend something. Preserve their trust by being transparent.
  • Limit your use of this posting style to keep your readership. If your blog becomes the equivalent of your readers’ junk mail folders, they won’t read it.
  • Only promote businesses and products that have some kind of value for your audience, and that already market to the same demographic. If you do this right, your subscriber list will actually grow.

Building Your Brand

For most ambitious businesses, this is usually the big goal:

When you’ve built your brand to the point where it has intrinsic value, people will pay you just to use your name. At this point, you’re no longer selling products or services, even if you have a webstore; you’re selling YOU and your image.

As a beginner, it might be difficult to grasp this concept, and this doesn’t have to be your goal. You can make a significant income from the other methods listed in this piece without ever executing a complicated business plan to turn your blog into a marketable brand.

At this level, the money comes from things like product endorsements, speaking engagements and appearances, and collaborations with other successful businesses.

For example:

The blogger Bakerella, who started the cake pops craze, has built value in her own brand. She has branded toys and books, and works with major companies that want to use the Bakerella name in their own marketing.

Since I’ve mentioned disclosing your business relationships so many times, I should tell you that I have no affiliation with Bakerella. She doesn’t even know I exist. I just like cake pops.

Pros:

  • There’s a very high income potential.
  • You’ll find a degree of fame at this point, even if it’s just in your specific niche.
  • An array of creative and fun opportunities will find you.
  • As your brand grows, you’ll get invited to do cool things like attend movie premiers or go to gala events.
  • The intrinsic value of your brand will result in passive, or residual, income. You’ll get paid just for being you.
  • You’ll be offered more speaking engagements than you can handle.

 

Cons:

  • This is probably the most difficult way to make money with a blog.
  • It takes years to achieve this level of success, and your skills will have to be quite advanced.
  • Only disciplined, determined people make it this far. Most people give up.
  • At this point, your blog is a business. You have a little less creative control because you have to focus on the brand.

 

Tips:

  • If your goal is to build a brand, you should read books like What Great Brands Do by Denise Lee Yohn. And, yes, that is an affiliate link.
  • Start with a long-term vision, then set short-term goals that will help get you there. Every action you take should bring you closer to the end goal.
  • Don’t neglect other streams of income, but work them into your long-term plan.
  • Blog flipping, also called domain flipping, operates on a similar principal. Some entrepreneurs will start a blog and build a following, creating some value for the brand, and then sell that blog to eager buyers for a potentially large sum of money. It’s the same thing as house flipping or selling off successful startup businesses, but in the virtual world.

How To Supercharge Your Website Traffic – It’s Not Just SEO


SEO is awesome.

If you want to increase website traffic, you should probably learn how to do it.

That being said, optimizing your site for a search engine is not the only way to get new viewers on your webpages. In fact, it might not even be the best way to get your website exposed to a wider audience.

With all the resources available to teach you about good SEO habits, we thought it would be helpful to take a look at all the ways you can boost your blog traffic and increase your web presence without relying too heavily on search engines. Use this guide to generate more traffic on your website with a well-rounded, intelligent marketing strategy.

 

Good Habits Pay Off

If blogging is part of your marketing strategy, or if you consider yourself a serious blogger, building these few basic habits is non-negotiable. No matter what else you do, neglecting any of these foundational points will seriously hurt your traffic.

Consistency is everything.

Post often, but more importantly, post regularly and on a consistent basis. There is no magic number of blog posts per week that works for everyone, but as a general rule, more is better. If you have the time and the discipline to release new content daily, by all means, do that! But if you know you can only create one high quality article each week, just do one per week.

There will be days when you have extra time or an abundance of inspiration, and you’ll go on a writing spree. Don’t waste that! Instead of posting everything as soon as you’ve written it, use the scheduling tool to plan ahead. It will save you from scrambling at the last minute to come up with something on your regular posting days. If you do ever find yourself stumped at the last minute, don’t panic. It’s better to post a day late than it is to post subpar content. And, when in doubt, do a listicle.* They’re quick to write and connect well with readers.

*A listicle is an article in list format, like “10 Reasons I Love WordPress.”

You have analytics for a reason.

Keep track of where you’re getting the most traffic and interaction from your readers, and figure out why. Do longer posts get more views? Are your most popular pieces the ones with lots of pictures, or the ones with certain types of content? What kinds of posts does your audience share most frequently? You don’t need to spend hours studying your statistics, but check regularly to see what’s working, and then do more of that.

Once you know what’s working, 80% of your content should look like that. The other 20% will be a mix of experimental posts to see if you can find something to work better, and formats that aren’t quite as effective but still see some results. Basically, the majority of your time should be devoted to doing what you already know works for you, and that’s going to look different for each individual business or website.

You get comments. You should answer them.

Most bloggers never get comments on their posts at all, so if you do have an audience of people who interact with you, don’t waste that! Having discussion on your blog post encourages people to read what you’ve written, and it gives new visitors the impression that they’ve stumbled into a thriving community instead of just another website. Respond to every (real) comment you get, and make sure that you’re contributing something to the conversation. Ask questions, encourage participation, and make it very clear that you appreciate that very small percentage of readers who add to the discussion.

Fast sites keep more readers

If your webpage takes too long to load, you’re losing valuable traffic and pageviews. This is the age of high speed internet and instant gratification. Pay attention to the user experience, and you will be rewarded.

Use your email list

If you don’t already have an email newsletter, you need to start one immediately. Email marketing is still one of the most effective avenues for driving traffic, sales, and participation among your audience. Your email list is a paying asset, so don’t neglect it.

Remind your followers why they started following you in the first place by keeping up stellar writing habits in your emails, and absolutely give your mailing list exclusive content, but don’t forget that all roads should lead back to your website. Whether you offer a preview of your most popular blog content, a coupon code for your online store, or a teaser for a new interactive feature you’re offering, there should be at least one call to action that brings users out of their email and into your online territory.

Whether you’re a new blogger, a hobbyist planning to transition into professional blogging, or you’re a seasoned pro, the tips shared above should be the foundation for your traffic building strategy. Even as your following grows and you expand into other areas, maintain your good habits. They’ll take you far.

 

How To Generate Website Traffic For Free

Before we discuss paid traffic sources, let’s discuss how you can boost your website traffic for free.

Free website traffic is essentially a side effect of great content and a little bit of networking knowhow. The best way to attract readers is by writing what they want to read – and structuring it in such a way that it’s attractive, concise, and shareable. That formula is going to be a little bit different for every audience, but the basics will stay the same.

Also keep in mind that your strategy should vary depending on your readership and niche. Some of these ideas may not apply to you, and that’s okay. Draw inspiration where you can, and ignore the rest for now.

Rule number 1: don’t ever post substandard content

Just as we mentioned earlier, it’s better to post late than to post something that’s difficult to read or poorly written. As your skills improve, it’s wise to revisit and update old posts. Remember that your blog is the place where potential clients and customers meet your brand, and they’re going to form an opinion of you and your business based on what they see there. Everything you put on the internet should be a stellar representation of who you are and what your brand stands for.

A byline is a wonderful thing. By guest blogging (writing posts for other people’s websites) and selling your freelance work, you have an opportunity to put your name in front of more people and lure them back to your own page. Having content published in multiple places around the web also sets you up as an industry expert, which increases the value of your brand. Remember to ask ahead of time if it’s acceptable to include a link back to your own blog in your byline to avoid confusion or conflict later.

Get out there and be a human

The internet and the real world are not separate and individual places. Behind every blog post and website, there is a real human being, and it’s real human beings that go to those pages and read them. Don’t be afraid to tell people about your website, and carry business cards with you that have your web address on them in case they ask for the URL. Even simply carrying a small pad of paper and a pen so that you can write down your web address can be effective, and while most people probably won’t visit your site even with the business card in hand, it’s nearly guaranteed that nobody will remember you or your blog if you don’t give them something in writing.

Share your expertise

While you’re being a human, consider speaking at seminars, hosting classes, or even providing a free webinar or podcast to share your knowledge with others. You’ll notice a gigantic spike in traffic for a couple of weeks every time you make a live presentation to an audience of at least 100 people, and you’re likely to make connections that will lead to exciting opportunities in the future. Encourage your listeners to live tweet during classes and presentations, and you might even offer prizes or exclusive content to participants who post about their experience on social media. And on that note…

Bribery works.

Offer your readers access to exclusive content or downloads, or a chance to win a prize if they share your content or sign up for your newsletter. Giveaways often operate under this principle, entering readers for a chance to win some kind of prize in exchange for comments, Facebook shares, Tweets, or some other desired action. You don’t have to offer a product as a prize, though. Sometimes, a short .PDF guide or a special members-only area on the website is enough to entice readers to participate, and to attract new users.

Other bloggers are your friends

If you’re considering using giveaways as a method for growing traffic (they do work, by the way) you can amplify the effect by working with other bloggers or businesses that have an existing audience similar to the type of people you want to attract. Many businesses will donate their own products, gift cards, or other free stuff specifically for you to give it away, and then they will promote your page to their own readers. The same concept applies for product reviews, interviews, and other promotional posts. Any time you write something that makes another blogger or business look good, they’re likely to share that post with their own readers, which sends those readers to your website. It’s a beautiful relationship, and you should absolutely try it.

Embrace group projects

Working with other bloggers is a brilliant way to share traffic, as long as you both benefit and your audiences are the same types of people. Essentially, you’re going to both post on your own websites about some topic – for example, a discussion of a business book – and then you’ll each link to the other bloggers who are participating. Get creative with this concept and you’ll have lots of fun while your website’s traffic grows. Perhaps you’d like to have a virtual book club, or an online birthday party where each blogger contributes a fun story about the birthday boy or girl. The only limit is your own imagination, and your ability to work with other people.

Join the discussion.

If it’s appropriate for your audience and your brand, weigh in on current events and breaking news in your industry. Keep track of trends and participate. An extra benefit to this is that you won’t run out of ideas if you regularly join in the global conversation. Offer a new perspective, or even just host an opinion poll, which brings us to the next idea:

Add a forum or discussion board on your website.

Give your loyal visitors a place where they can communicate amongst themselves. Not only will you see more traffic as people come to your website to be a part of the active community there, but you’ll have a direct connection with your readers. They’ll tell you what they want to know, and you can see their reactions to the world in real time. The more powerful you can make your community, the better results you’ll see from all of your marketing campaigns.

Invite commentary.

Comments are a wonderful thing – we’ve already mentioned that you should be responding to every comment you get, but you’ll get far more interaction if you just ask for it. Something as simple as ending a post with a question and/or encouraging readers to share their own opinions and experiences will make a huge difference in how people respond.

Branch out

You can have a web presence outside of your own website. Start a YouTube channel, participate in social media trends on Snapchat and Instagram, post additional content on LinkedIn, release podcasts…just make sure that your extracurriculars are appropriate for your message. Pay attention to where your audience spends time and invest some effort there. Make sure that your brand is consistent and your additional content always steers back to your website, and keep track of your analytics. If you’re not getting results, don’t waste time trying to force it. Focus your effort where you’re getting the best return.

Clickbait is annoying, but it works.

Some brands are committed to staying away from clickbait titles (Banks Hate Him – Here’s Why) but even though readers recognize instantly that “10 Weird Ways To Boost Your Search Engine Standing – Number 10 is NUTS!” is basically a gimmick, statistics prove that the format still works. Structure your titles in such a way that they spark curiosity and encourage clickthroughs, and you’ll see more visitors from social media. These probably won’t be readers that are going to subscribe to your blog and become committed fans, but if you need a serious numbers boost in a short amount of time, clickbait might be perfect for you.

Leverage social impact

Build your social media following on sites like Facebook and Twitter, and then write content specifically designed to encourage sharing. The secret here is emotional impact. Readers are more likely to share your posts – even advertisements – if those posts touch on some deeply felt emotion. If you’re doing a good job of building an audience of the right people, this will come easy. Take a look at the types of things they’re already sharing and use it for inspiration.

Every business is unique, and every audience has a distinct an individual culture. When it comes to driving traffic to your website, your imagination is the limit. Savvy businesspeople and sharp bloggers come up with new ways to connect every day, and you can do that, too.

 

Paid Traffic Sources

If it’s within your budget and makes sense for your business model, you might consider paying for traffic to your site.

Even if you’re buying clicks, though, it’s important to keep up those good habits we talked about earlier in this post. To get more traffic on your website, you still need to have content that people want to read. Don’t neglect all those free sources of internet traffic just because you’ve decided to buy some of your views.

Most blogs that use paid advertising use multiple sources to accomplish their traffic goals. Here are a few places you might consider when you’re thinking of buying website traffic:

Social media ads

Facebook ads are by far the most popular because of the smart targeting system, but you can also promote content on sites like Twitter, Google Plus, and Pinterest. How do you decide? Advertise where your audience spends the most time.

StumbleUpon

We’ve mentioned StumbleUpon separately from other social media, even though it’s similar to Pinterest, because the format is so drastically different from anything in the same category. StumbleUpon works by giving users the chance to quickly browse through certain types of content – it’s known for driving big numbers to blogs that advertise there, but the bounce rate is ridiculously high for most of those views. Your strategy with sites like StumbleUpon will differ greatly from your other social media plans.

Traditional advertising

It’s not used as frequently as other paid advertising methods, but you can purchase airtime on radio, television, and other traditional sources. This route can be very expensive, and it tends to be difficult to measure direct results, so it’s recommended that you work with a professional and carefully consider whether it’s appropriate for your business.

Banner ads

Odds are, you’ve seen a banner ad at some point today already. Whether you use a service to place your ads on other sites or you work directly with web admins to negotiate your ad placement, a well designed banner can drive major numbers to your site.

Pay per click

Search engines like Google often offer PPC advertising, in which you agree to pay a specific amount of money each time someone clicks through a link and comes to your website. Cost varies greatly depending on how specifically you target your audience, and you can easily set a budget. After enough people have clicked that your maximum budgeted amount has been reached, your ad stops displaying until you’re ready to buy more clicks.

Sponsored and underwritten posts

Some bloggers will allow you to sponsor posts – this means that they write a post (or use something you’ve written) on their own website that promotes your brand in exchange for payment. Generally, if the blogger has a significant audience, you can expect to pay them anywhere from $100+ for this service, with higher prices for popular writers that are good at marketing. You can also pay to underwrite a post – the blogger will write their usual content, and include a notation saying something like “this post was brought to you by 34SP.com Hosting Services” where their readers will see it. Underwritten posts are generally in the $50-$100 range, but can vary tremendously depending on the blogger.

Get your products reviewed

Blogging has become an integral part of most major businesses’ marketing strategies because it’s so effective, and you can take advantage of that trend by offering free product in exchange for blogger reviews. Most bloggers will post reviews in exchange for free product, but some might request payment as well. It’s perfectly reasonable to ask about the blog’s traffic numbers, and how often readers generally click through to external links before you decide to give away free product or pay for a review.

Keep track of your return on investment, try a few different methods, and give them enough time to work before you make up your mind. Only you know what’s reasonable for your budget and traffic goals.

 

Make It Work

This post is meant to be a starting point, a resource to give your creative juices a boost.

To see success with any one of these tips for generating more website traffic, focus on only a few things at a time. There’s a tonne of information here, and it’s tempting to dive in and try to do everything at once.

DON’T DO THAT.

Choose your top 3, the ideas that you think will be most effective for your website, and apply yourself for at least 30 days before you make a decision. After a month, take a look at your statistics and decide whether you’re going to keep doing the same things, or if you should stop and try something new.

Growing website traffic is a slow process, and it takes steady effort to see success. Keep at it, and by this time next year, you’ll see explosive results

Mientras destacando que los resultados no son un catálogo completo, pero algo más de una investigación, Schneier y su equipo realizaron una encuesta a nivel mundial de productos de encriptación y 865 dispositivos encontrados o programas incorporando encriptación de 56 países, con un tercio de los productos procedentes de los Estados Unidos.
