For those trying to figure out what separates an affiliate who generates $50,000/month in revenues and one who only generates $50/month in revenues, here check it out. Good thoughts and information on how effective a mind set is when it comes to hitting whatever goal you want to achieve.
After reading that post I decided to reset my thermostat. That means, no blog posting for the whole month (February 2009) as I'm going to focus all my energy and strength to IM.
I'l be back on March 2009..
A few days back, I come across this premium wordpress plugin that will help the publisher to automate private ad selling. The cool tool that I'm talking about here is the OIO Publisher. Its very easy to setup and the interface is simple.
I'm using OIO Publisher to easily manage buying and selling of all my blogs' private ads (banner, text link, blog post, downloads). Its automated from A-Z - from payment to ad placement to follow up emails.
After reading good affiliate marketing experience and success stories using the social network ad medium, I decided to take a plunge and choose Facebook Ads platform as my starting point.
The first thing I did before I setup my affiliate campaign in FB is to search the net for free facebook coupon codes. After 30 minutes, I have found $250.00 worth of fund that I can use to promote my affiliate link in Facebook free. (I compiled the facebook ad voucher here)
Let me just share you how this blog improve since the last time we reviewed its' traffic stats.
|Nov 5 - Dec 5||Dec 5 - Jan 5||Change|
|Average Pageviews||2.87||2.54||- 11.49%|
|Absolute Unique Visitors||236||306||+ 29.66%|
|RSS Subscribers||no data||12||n/a|
Although improvements are evident in most of the aspects that we are monitoring, still the monthly visits and pageviews is not high. There is also a notable decrease in average pageview which I suspect is because of not posting new content. Maybe they check the site, when there is no new content they leave. I'm thinking of installing a random post the the homepage to improve the pageview.
There are million ways to earn money online and google adsense is just one of them. Let me share you my earning recap for being a google publisher since the first day I use adsense.
January - December 2007 Adsense Recap:
January 2007 is when I successfully setup my first blog using the free blog hosting (www.blogger.com). Here are the unforgettable dates and numbers on my first year of being an adsense publisher:
- February 12, 2007 - my blog received its very first adsense page impression.
- March 2, 2007 - somebody clicked my adsense ads making it my official first adsense earning equivalent to $0.11
- $3.22 - highest adsense earning per day on that year.
- Total page impression for 2007 is 93,534 and my total earning for the whole 2007 is a whoooping $70.05!... that is an average of $0.24 per day, very very impressive eh?
Since I started playing around with affiliate marketing I already learned many things. One of these is how to redirect visitor to specific link according to which country they originated.
I have this blog that have a good amount of traffic. If I want to implement a CPA offer in that blog, I need to find way to segregate my organic visitors automatically. The idea is this - drive US visitor to CPA offer accepting US traffic, or if the visitor is from Australia, send him/her to similar CPA affiliate link accepting Australia traffic.
