Its been long since I last updated this blog. But, hey, a lot has been happening! In fact, its been a manic time.
The last time I blogged, I was talking about investing in a product review blog that earned off affiliate marketing as an alternative way of earning from my blogging skills. It was an idea that I had seen work -according to the blogs I read. However, as I came to realize, it is not easy as it seems. There is quite a lot to be done, especially when it comes to SEO. I had to reconsider my strategy. Okay….don’t hang me for leaving it too early. The truth is, I didn’t.
Although, I stopped using the domain I had bought, I got another and tried monetizing it in several ways. As you may guess, affiliate marketing is one of them. The others are advertising and guest posts. In this post, I will share with you the sites, but not in detail due to time constraints.
The first blog is a tech website that I run with a friend. It focuses on reviewing both hardware and software products in the tech world. Its success led me to experiment with another niche. And that’s fashion.
So the second blog, is pretty new and focuses on fashion tips, specifically on dresses for women. I also hope it will pick up fast.
I will return with more bog posts about the progress of these sites. Its hectic here though! Anyway I will keep you updated.
And, if you want to know more about the progress or any other thing, don’t forget to leave your comments below.
I have been away for awhile, struggling to build my reputation on iwriter -a feat that I can easily say that I have achieved. Earning more than $1000 while working online is not easy especially if you have only been working for a few months but iwriter gave me an opportunity to get that amount (the biggest I had ever earned online).
As it is with most people, earning is one thing but spending is another. The latter is even more difficult. I could not just ponder around wasting my hard-earned cash, so I needed to invest it somewhere. I understand that it is not a big amount but hey, it is worth an investment. I went through multiple sites trying to get one that would give me a viable investment option albeit on a small budget.
The answers were plenty.
From a lending site to forex trading, it seemed like i was spoilt for choice. However, after a little more research, I found out that most of these sites will only leave you with losses and they are not perfect for a guy with only a small amount of money to invest.
I then stumbled upon an idea of a product review website. I knew it was not the easiest thing in the world but i decided to give it a try. I consulted the internet and the advice given seemed to be telling me ‘boy, the niche is good, but earning from it ain’t easy’.
My innovative and hardworking mind can not just give up on this.
I went ahead and bought web hosting from a good hosting online with fair prices and set up a product review site. I am also a web designer, with a new company running on the sideways (i’ll come to that later), so it was not that difficult to come up with a website.
It has only been a few days since the website went live and so far i’m getting around 4-6 new visitors per day with returning visitors being on a maximum of 2 per day. I can only attribute this to my ever growing knowledge in SEO.
I have to concentrate on getting traffic first but I also have to earn money at some point or later. With all these in mind, I have signed for an affiliate program but it is yet to be included in the website. I am thinking of writing the content in a better way first of all, add more content and then provide affiliate links. I know it is not easy, but I’m confident i will make it.
If you have any idea on how such a site can be made even more profitable feel free to share. Anyway, I will be keeping you posted on the same, so keep on checking.
Its a wrap for now.
If you can write well, then there is nothing that can prevent you from earning. Below are a couple of sites that will help you jumpstart your writing career while earning in the process.
As soon as you sign up to iWriter, you can start writing immediately. This means that, potentially, you could start earning some money for your writing today. It is probably the least painful way to start earning money online quickly, that is, if you can produce articles that the requesters are happy with.
