Is Google Adsense a worthy enough option to make some money from ads?

I never felt so!!

I was fascinated with the mini-site revolution and got into the internet marketing arena when I read a book on making money from advertisements – Google and Yahoo, being the two major networks.

Most of you might have started your internet journey this same way.

Let me ask you a few questions?

How did your journey on the internet go after you started? How much money did you earn from Google or, Yahoo ads? How many money making websites do you have as on date?

If answering these questions took more than 3 minutes of your time, then let me tell you that you are not making any money from your website. This is because if you were making any money, you would know the number of websites that you have and you will for sure have a dollar value to quote as you earning.

I too, did not earn a single penny for the first few months. But I was fairly good at HTML and knew how to build sites. I also was lucky enough to invest in a niche finder software called as Micro Niche Finder, which dug out a couple of niche markets for me. So I finally built about 15 odd websites and slapped a few advertisement codes on them and also linked them to a few affiliate product websites and in about 17 days I saw my first few dollars. Since that day I have 37 websites on the internet in addition to other affiliate marketing websites and blogs. These 37 websites generate close to $7,000 in advertisement income every month. This means each of these websites generate about $189.00 per month. (Not bad for me because since the day I have put these websites on the internet, I have not looked at them).

But creating these websites, sure took me about 3-4 days. It was boring, tiring, frustrating and lot of other ….ings. -:)

The last month I came across this script that was referred to me by my friend James. He said that this script generates instant video websites that are dynamic in nature and that I will not have to spend more than 10-15 minutes. I was excited. I straight away downloaded the script and read through the read me file.

The next 15 minutes saw me launch my first video website. You can check it out at http://www.anti-aging-secrets-videos.info.

It is precisely 36 days that I have launched the website and my income from this website for the month comes to about $211.83. Isn’t that better than the websites that I had created?

Such is the power of videos and the instant videos script.

You can check out and download the script here. The script costs only $20.00.

Do let me know your feedback about the script. Yo ucan contact me in case you face any problems.

Site Sell, Site Build It, Design your website, build a website

The success of any internet based business lies in the front-end website. Websites selling products call it the sales page and people running an online store call it the store-front and yet others simply call it a website.

Are you wondering how to build your website like a professional?

If you are new to the internet and is currently in the preparations to launch your internet marketing business, you would surely be scratching your head out of the confusion of getting your website designed. Exhorbitant website designer quotations and difficult to understand HTML codes – your internet marketing business just looks like dying even before it has started.

You are not the only one faced with situation. Every newbie internet marketer, fascinated with the rags-to-riches stories of other successful internet marketers and bloggers set out on a plan to make money and stumble upon the same situation that you are in. Though I never had to face this situation, because I knew a fair bit of HTML to design my website, I sometimes still feel the need to get off with this website designing activity and concentrate on my business.

Web designing options:-

This situation could be a tricky one and you might need to properly and accurately assess your need well, before deciding on what kind of a website or, a website design you should go for.

Some easily available options are as follows:

CMS Platforms – There are a lot of Content Management Solutions available these days and these are pretty easy to install and use. WordPress is one such publishing platform and the easiest of all. You need not know any HTML code if you plan to install WordPress. WordPress installations can be used for blogs as well as static websites. You have the option of setting these preferences in the administration panel of WordPress.

There are other such solutions like Jhoomla, Drupal and such other but these require some knowledge about HTML or, else you could find yourself browsing through websites and search engines to find solutions to problems that you face while installations.

WYSIWSG Site building options – These options are mostly offered by hosting companies. One such easiest site builder is called as Website Builder and is normally offered by Godaddy and their resellers. WYSIWYG means “What You See Is What You Get”. It is a simple click and drag way of building a site.

The drawback about these sites is the fact that there are type-casted. There are a specific number of designs that are available and you choose one of them. So you loose your uniqueness and identity to many other such similar websites.

Site Build It – This is one the best and most recommended options. People who are absolute newbies can also build professional looking and elegant websites with ‘Site Build It’.

Site Build It‘ is not a website designing service, instead it is a complete internet business package. You will not have to run after hosting companies to find the best host for you, nor will you have to run after designers to build a site for you within your budget and timeline. ‘Site Build It‘ is a package that offers you all of this and in addition to this, also ensures that you have a website that works.

I have helped a lot of my friends start their first internet marketing business with the help of ‘Site Build It‘. Hence I know this is a package that not only promises results but also delivers.

Custom designs at Chromaa Solutions – Chromaa Solutions is a company that I am a partner of and we are into website designing, logo designing, Search Engine Optimization etc.

In case you wish to get a custom design done for your website, I can offer you a custom designed 5 pager static website for only $199.00.

Whatever the option that you choose, you should align it with your goals. If your decision is to start a blog and you are lost in the world of Drupal or, Jhoomla (assuming that you have little or, no knowledge about HTML), then your start-up is going to be an absolute failure. So your decision should be based on factors like your budget, the website’s objective, you preferances in designs etc.

In case you need any assistance in deciding what is the best option for you, you can contact me and I can help you make a decision. Just use the ‘contact us’ form on the top. (This is a free of cost assistance that I am providing)

badass-wp-logoHave you upgraded your blog to WordPress 2.8?

If not, then it is time that you do so. If you are still wondering as to why should you upgrade then read through a few of the features in the latest version of the world’s favorite blogging platform and you will be convinced.

You can find much more information about the Version 2.8 at the official page at WordPress.

A few of the highlights of the latest version is as follows:

  1. WordPress 2.8 sports a new drag-and-drop widgets option in your admin interface. All you now need to do is just drag the widgets that you want to display in your sidebar and drop it. No need to even save it after dropping the widget.
  2. The theme editors and plugin editors have a new feature. It now highlights syntax for editing and also has a built-in function lookup option.
  3. In all the earlier versions, installing the theme meant that you have to have an FTP application installed. In WordPress version 2.8, all you need to do is just browse the theme directory and install themes directly from the admin.
  4. Now the dashboard widgets can be arranged in upto four columns thus making it easy to navigate and use your dashboard.
  5. WordPress 2.8 now supports timezones and even automatic daylight savings time adjustmentdirectly from your admin panel.
  6. You can also configure the number of items to show on the management pages with an option in the Screen Options.
  7. The best part of the latest version is that it supports IIS 7.0 URL Rewrite Module, which has known to create problems in the earlier versions.

There were multiple reasons why I was eagerly awaiting the release of WordPress version 2.8. But the most impressive of these is the fact that

- You can now easily install themes from your admin panel directly. This was always a challenge for me and I has always wanted WordPress to implement this feature in one of their releases.

- Widgets on you sidebars was another aspect that seemed interesting to me. In all the earlier versions, you had to first select a sidebar from the drop-down menu (this is, if you had multiple sidebars in your theme), then click a widget to select it for your sidebar. After all this if you forget to save the changes, all your changes were gone. In the latest version, all this is got rid off. All that you need to do is drag and drop your favorite widgets onto the sidebar of your choice.

Go ahead and upgrade your database, if you haven’t already.

Niche BloggingHow difficult is it to survive in a niche like that of “Make money blogging”?

Whenever a newbie internet marketer comes across a very successful blogger like Yaro Starak, Darren Rowse or, Carl Ocab and read their success stories, the primary instinct is to start a blog immediately on the same line as these successful bloggers. They buy a domain, get a hosting and install wordpress on it. Then they launch a blog on “Making money online blogging”.

Are you one such internet marketer, who started a blog on “making money online blogging”?

Are you frustrated at the poor results that your blog is showing and are not able to make a single cent out of your blog?

You are not on the wrong side of the road. There are millions other like you. In fact I too was like you. About 3 years back, I started a blog on “making money online blogging” and after 4 months discarded the entire blog because I was frustrated to the core as I was unable to match the competition of the more successful bloggers and I had zero visitors to my blog.

By this, I do not intend to say that you too should delete your blog, just because you are not getting enough visitors or, you are unable to match the competition. Rather what I wanted to say is that it is time that you started thinking and working differently, if you wish to succeed.

My blog here at DKSpeaks, is a “make money online” blog. But I knew that I will never be able to rank well for the term “make money blogging” or, “make money online blogging”. I knew I had to get into some kind of a niche in this market, if I am to rank in Google and get a bit of traffic. So I researched into this market with the help of my favorite niche keyword research tool – Micro Niche Finder, and I stumbled upon a very unique niche. It had a decent count of searches and there were very few results. I knew that this is my market. Today I rank the 5th for this niche on Google. (It is a business secret and hence I am not disclosing the details here. -:)

So what is it that takes to succeed in “make money online blogging” today? It is “Niche blogging”.

What is niche blogging?

Every market has a micro market in it. Let us consider the example of “Ringtones”. This is a market that Jeremy Schoemaker used to start off with his internet marketing business and is very competitive. When you research into this market you will come across other micro markets like – Cingular Ringtone, Sprint Rintones. Further you can find Cingular polyphonic rintones, Cingular trutones, Cingular MP3 ringtones. A bit more of research could lead you to markets like Cingular MP3 movie songs ringtones, Cingular MP3 Christmas songs rintones etc.

So this is what a niche is all about. When you start your blog, you will have to research enough to find a niche for yourself so that you have less competition and yet make a living out of the market.

How to succeed in Niche Blogging?

My friend Codrut Turcanu from Lazyblogging has an excellent resource to help you succeed in Niche Blogging. If you are determined to make money online blogging, then you should read his book on niche blogging – “Niche Blogging Profits”.

In this book he speaks about 7 secrets that he used to generate more than $35,000 from niche blogging. I got a chance to read his book and I decided that I would implement his techniques to one of my niche blogs in te career couselling and career development niche at BPODiary. In just one month, I was surprised to see that my visitor count increased by almost 215% and the revenue that I made from the blog was about $4,700 in comparison to a revenue of less than a $1,000 that I was making earlier.

Niche blogging is sure to help you succeed in making money online blogging. Check it out here.

P.S:- Get the book at a special discount if you order it today.

Don’t forget to post your comments on the ebook and the post.
