Profiting From Tablet Devices: Part 2


Yesterday, we’ve seen some ways that you can profit from the increasing number of people who are interested in using a tablet as their secondary, or maybe main internet access device. There are a few more ways for entrepreneurs to make money from them. Here are some more ideas that you may want to consider:

 

  • Developing and marketing apps

 

As the amount of tablet users grows, so does the demand for applications that run on the common tablet platforms like iOS and Android. In the last 2 years, the demand for these apps has, in fact, exploded. Businesses are looking for a way to get their brand better known and would love to have an app made for tablets. Software developers are looking to cash in on this new trend by making various kinds of programs that can run on these devices.

 

So if you have some experience developing software, you could make some money either by creating apps that someone else requested, or by coming up with unique ideas for apps and creating your own. One business model that works really well for many tablet apps like games and accounting tools is the “freemium” one. The basic version of the app is free, but in order for the user to unlock more levels, or to get a more powerful version of the app, they would need to pay a small amount. This helps draw users attention to the application and like it, they may want to spend some money in order to upgrade.

 

Furthermore, it is also possible to integrate ads in some types of apps, which means that you can profit either from selling a paid version of the app, or get ad revenue from the free version.

 

  • Selling Tablet Insurance

 

When spending anywhere from $200 to $700 on a tablet, people naturally want to protect their investment. Obviously, there’s a manufacturer’s warranty available, but the problem is that it only covers manufacturing defects for a year or so and nothing more. Mobile devices that people often take with them anywhere they go are naturally prone to some hazards such as accidental damage, loss or theft.

 

There is a small, yet growing market for mobile device insurance, which provides repair or replacement in case someone’s device gets lost, stolen or damaged. While selling insurance can sometimes be a bit complicated as you would have to follow some regulations and obtain the proper permits in many jurisdictions, it can still be quite a profitable venture if you’re willing to try and enter a relatively new industry and act as a true entrepreneur.

 

These were some ways to make money with the rising popularity of tablet PCs. Of course, there are definitely many more that you can find if you make a bit of effort and research some money making opportunities.

Some More Monetization Options For Your Blog

Some More Monetization Options For Your Blog


If you are creating a blog, there are various ways that you can monetize it, which simply means to make money from it. Yesterday, we have seen the two easiest and most common ways of making some profit from your blog, which are inserting pay per click ads on it, as well as putting up a donation button. But there are two other options worth mentioning. While they may be a bit more complex, they are still being used by plenty of bloggers out there and can be extremely profitable.

 

  • Putting up affiliate ads

 

The basic concept behind affiliate marketing is that you get paid a certain commission when someone clicks on an ad on your blog and either buys something, or performs a specific action such as signing up for a website. Unlike pay per click ads, you do not get paid for every click that the ad receives from a visitor.

 

When it comes to affiliate offers, in order to get the most success, you should use offers that are closely related to the theme of your blog. So if your blog talks about cars, for example, you could put ads for car insurance companies, which typically pay you whenever someone requests a quote from the insurance company. You can also participate in the Amazon Affiliate Program. Amazon.com is one of the world’s most popular online retailers and they sell hundreds of thousands of items in different categories. So if your blog talks about photography, you can put up some ads for photo cameras from Amazon. If someone clicks on the ad and makes a purchase, you will receive a commission based on the amount of the total sale. Remember that in order to make the highest amount of money possible, the affiliate offers that you promote on your blog should be related to its content.

 

The more “generic” ads such as the “shoot 3 ducks and get a free iPhone!!” banners are best avoided, since many of your readers have probably already seen them and will simply ignore them. While you can put some affiliate offers that aren’t really related to the niche of your blog, doing so is not recommended since your readers are far less likely to even click on these ads in the first place.

 

  • Selling your own products

 

This can be a good monetization option if you produce your own products, or you simply own an e-commerce site that sells certain items that could be of interest to your readers. For example, if you have a blog about technology and at the same time, you sell video game consoles and computers on eBay, you can put an ad for your eBay page inviting users to visit your online shop. To make it even more attractive for them, you could even offer a special discount code for readers of your blog. This can be a very profitable monetization choice, but of course you would need to be already involved in some form of e-commerce for you to make use of it.

What Offers To Promote With Yahoo Answers


We’ve seen that you can use Yahoo Answers in order to get some free traffic to your website. But some people wonder whether it is the right place for them to get traffic for THEIR site. Let’s take a look at what types of offers or products that you can successfully promote using them.

Affiliate/CPA offers.

This is the main thing that online marketers do to earn money: push some affiliate offers. You can get traffic to your offers by using Yahoo Answers, but you need to do it the right way. First, don’t post affiliate links on Yahoo Answers. Doing so will rapidly get you banned, as remember, it is not a place to advertise, but rather to share useful information. Therefore, you will need to build a landing page and get a domain name for your site. A $0.99 .info domain will do here.

Now, what kind of offers will do well here? While some people have had success with offers that require a credit card or a purchase, I have noticed that offers which simply require the person to sign up for a site or fill out information do better.

For example, if you are targeting the “make money online” niche, you have some options. You could build a simple, one or two page site that gives information on various paid survey opportunities and insert your affiliate links there. When you answer the question, provide some useful information about how online surveys work and how they can make some easy money and then send the reader to your site in order to compare various survey sites. You could also build a landing page for a free biz opp offer and send the reader there. You get $2 – $5 for every person that fills out the form.

There are other niches for you to explore as well. Many people ask questions about how much car insurance costs or how to get a student loan. There are plenty of pay per lead offers which are related to these niches. Just answer the askers question, and then tell them that “you found this site” which lets them compare car insurance quotes or get proposals for student loans, etc. Try out various types of offers and see what converts best.

No matter what you do, do not simply spam your website link all over the place. You should appear as a genuine participant in Yahoo Answers. Ask questions yourself. Answer some questions in other niches without linking to any website.

You could do this in about 1 or 2 hours each day. But if you want to save time, you can always hire a freelancer to answer the questions and participate for you. There are plenty of people who would be willing to do the work for you for a small amount, such as $0.25 per answer they post on the site.

Understanding different types of CPA offers

Understanding different types of CPA offers


If you haven’t joined a CPA network before, you may be wondering what types of offers are available for you to promote. Here is a quick overview of most of the offer types that you will find on networks today:

Email Submits: These offers will give you credit for the user submitting only their email address. Depending on the merchant, the user may or may not have to confirm their email address by opening up a message with a confirmation link in it. However, usually they won’t have to. Most of the email submit offers are for the “free ipod” type sites, which will let the user earn a gift by completing more offers on the merchants site. The reason why merchants can pay to get just an email address is because some of the users who input their email (a tiny minority) will go on to complete some of the offers that the merchant has on their site. They also add the user’s email to their mailing list and will then send him email advertising as well.

PIN Submits/Cell phone offers: Here the user will have to submit their cell phone number, usually to get some mobile content such as free wallpapers, ringtones, a daily horoscope sent by SMS, jokes sent by SMS or applications for cell phones. By doing so, they will subscribe to the merchant’s service which will charge them each time they receive text messages or content from them.

Form Submits: You get credit for the user filling out a form, usually to sign up for a free service, such as a dating site or a social network. The rationale behind these offers for the merchant is that a certain percentage of users will either upgrade their membership to a paid one later or otherwise buy something from them.

Lead offers: Similar to above but longer and more detailed, may involve the user filling out 3 or 4 pages of forms. Often used to get quotes for debt consolidation, mortgage or insurance offers.

Download offers: You get paid when the user downloads a piece of software such as an application, browser extension or toolbar. The merchant pays for each download due to the fact that their software may serve ads to the user or there may be a paid version available which they hope a certain percentage of users will upgrade to.

Credit card submit/trial offers: Here, the user gets a trial of a service, such as an internet fax service, “make money online” membership site, etc. or a product like a weight loss pill, teeth whitening product, vitamin supplement, etc. The user normally gets charged a small fee such as $2 or $3 for the trial. However, when the trial period is over and the user didn’t cancel, the merchant will then bill them the regular price, which can range from $20 to $100 a month. These offers typically pay more than other types, but are harder to promote as the user needs to input payment information.

Advertising Options Overview – Google Adwords

Advertising Options Overview – Google Adwords


Whatever type of online product you are promoting, whether it’s an ebook on Clickbank, or a CPA offer, you would need to get traffic to your offer. We all know that: if you get no traffic, you get no conversions and therefore no revenue. Google Adwords is one of the most popular online advertising tools that is used by internet marketers to get targeted traffic directly to their offers. Here is a quick overview of how it works:

Adwords is a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising service. This means that you will pay for every click that is sent to your website, rather than the amount of times that your ad is displayed, or a flat rate for a certain period of time. The amount that you will pay for each click will depend on various factors. First is the competition for the keywords that you are targeting. Keywords that are quite broad in nature, such as “dog” or “computers” will cost you less, but the traffic will also be of lower quality than if you had used more specific keywords. This is quite simply due to the fact that these people will often not be in buying mode, but rather searching for general information about various products.

Keywords like “dog training guide” or “computer repair service” will yield much better results, but will cost you more for each click. Another factor that influences price is what other people are bidding for that keyword. The more competition for a certain keyword, the higher the average bid price will be. For example, most keywords related to financial products, such as “insurance” or “credit cards” can cost anywhere between $5 to $40 or more for a single click.

In Adwords, you will write a short text ad, composed of a title, 2 short lines of text and a link to your site. The ads themselves mainly appear on Google’s search results when someone searches for a keyword that you have bid on. The position of your ad will mainly depend on how much you bid. If your bid is higher than the other competitors, your ad has a better chance of appearing in the first position, highlighted on top of the search results. Google Adwords also uses the Google content network to distribute ads, however you may turn this option off in your account. This will make your ad appear on sites that have content related to your keywords. For example, if you are selling dog training guides, your ad could appear on a forum that talks about dogs.

Mastering the Google Adwords system will take you some time and practice. Therefore, you should do as much research as possible before launching a campaign on it. Believe me, mistakes on Adwords could be very costly for you. The good news is that many webhosting companies give a free voucher of $50 to $100 that you can use to create your first Adwords campaign, when you sign up for a hosting account with them.
