Various ways to monetise your traffic

Posted on Tuesday, April 1st 2008 3:28 pm by menj in Blogging, PPC

It is common knowledge that without traffic to our websites, we have no business. Like any business, without any customers you do not get sales. Traffic represents all the people that gets a chance to see what you have to offer, such as a website about rhinoplasty Beverly Hills, CA, for example. The more people who see your products the more people there would be to buy them. Nobody puts up an e-commerce site that does not earn any profit. We have a startup capital that needs to be regained. With a consistent traffic, we at least have a fighting chance to achieve that probability. Monetizing your traffic would optimize your chances of making the best out of it.

The best and most proven method of making a profit out of your traffic is using advertising. The internet generates hundreds of thousands upon hundred of thousands of traffic everyday. Most of them are searching for something. While some are just looking for information there is also a good percentage that is looking for something that they need. The internet has proven to be a very reliable source in finding what was deemed to be a very unsearchable product. The internet has made the world a smaller place; you can advertise a product from the depths of Istanbul and still find a buyer from the center of Philadelphia.

Generating traffic is not an easy task. You have to contend with a great number of sites to generate a good number of traffic flow. But if done successfully this could open up a Pandora’s Box of possibilities. One of the benefits is monetizing your traffic flow. So, to get to the core of it the more traffic you generate the more likely you are considered as a desirable, desirable, in a sense that a good traffic flowing site is easily convertible to profit. Basically traffic equals profit. Advertising is the name of the game; with the good advertising scheme you can use your traffic flow to your advantage. When you have good traffic you have a good number of potential customers, customers that are willing to pour money into your coffers. Other than that these are also traffic that can be redirected to sponsored links that are willing to pay you for a sizeable portion of the traffic that you have generated.

This scheme is called “pay-per-click”. With every click a visitor of your site makes on an advertised link you will be paid. The more traffic you generate and the more clicks that happens would spell to more profits. This is just one method of earning from your traffic.

      I can! You should see the moves on the road down here. 90 year olds barely looking over the steering wheel, people pulling out in front of you everywhere, people going all different speeds with no consistent traffic flow, tourists that have no clue where they are going, etc. Crazy. Every day. Here’s one positive- within five years it turned me into one awesome defensive driver!
      My source is the St. Petersburg Times. Was in Monday’s paper i believe. Maybe you can find it on the internet. I wish I had the paper with me so I could give you the exact date this study was published. Sorry.

      I really can’t understand why they should be consistent year after year?

      Any insights, and how can we reduce them, year after year?

      How do you fill out a traffic accident report if it was a hit and run accident. I could not identified the driver but got his license plate.I have a police report were it gives me the owners name, address, phone number, and license number. The owner of the vehicle is denying involvement in the accident. But my police report shows his truck damages are consistent with mine

      This is a business that is in a well populated middle and upper class area on a road that has consistent traffic. Not congested…just steady.

      If yes…. what do you think it takes?
      I know that the location helps, and the product helps, but some folks in marketing, seem to think that with proper motivation, any business can be successfuly. Jay Conrad Levinson is a prime example.

      I was pulled over today for the FIRST time for failing to make a complete stop at a stop sign. How much will it cost for the ticket in the Los Angeles county area (specifically, I’m in the city of Rosemead in the San Gabriel Valley). The officer didn’t know and since I have never been pulled over before, I don’t have a clue either. I can’t seem to find a consistent answer online. I need to know from someone who’s actually received one!

      Hello all, I am a internet marketer. I am looking for people with problems with their internet marketing life. I ask around my friends and they state Information overload, time management, traffic, conversions. What about yours? Let me know and see what i can do to help? Thanks

      I have a $208 ticket and the violation reads, “speed unsafe for conditions.” The court said my fine is consistent with speeding 20 mph over the limit. I was in a 20mph zone and going about 30 (10 over.) I wasn’t clocked and my speed and the speed limit are not on my ticket. Can I request a lower fine or a dismissal? What are my odds against the officer’s word?

      If people didn’t have to constantly stop at traffic lights, they would keep a more consistent speed, and use less gas overall.

      I’m looking to get started in the affiliate marketing business, but there are so many choices out there. I’m looking to find one that is easy to work with, but yet provides a good compensation agreement. Also, I’m asking this question to avoid the “get rich quick” schemes and scams that are prevalent online. My hope is that this business will provide an extra income as I start out, and eventually build it to replace my current income.

      So I’m trying to make some extra money and start selling products online as an affiliate. I have posted links on some classifieds so far and can’t really get any traffic to the site. What are some of the best places on the net to post my links and get the most traffic? Thnx. Any other tips on affiliate selling are welcome too.

      I’m venturing out on a small business idea online. I would like to give vendors the ability to resell my product or act as a distributor. I don’t know anything about this. How do you go about setting up an affiliate program? Any requirements? Any pros and cons?

      How do I find out which affiliate programs will work in my state?
      I was thinking about starting about a blog, but I found a long list of affiliates that won’t deal with people in my state due to tax laws. Amazon and adsense are on it.

      Where can I find a list of affiliates who will deal With me? All I find by googling are affiliates that won’t.

      Motorcyclists often say the safest place to ride from traffic is ahead of it and away from it.

      To be honest, I’ve rode in Texas long enough to know that having an SUV right beside you who randomly slows down and speeds up with someone on a cell phone driving poses much more of a threat to you than, say, going 10 mph over the speed limit for 2 seconds to pass them (in the lane to the left of them, of course).

      I usually figure…better to do this then get in a situation than one where the other driver can possibly switch into my lane without seeing me than slowing down and often getting trapped in their blind spot (and believe me, I have had SUV riders nudge me off the road-onto the shoulder all while I was honking at them and flashing my headlights).

      However, I wonder what a police would think of the situation. Because, of course, technically it’s illegal to, say, hit 75 for a few seconds on a 65 mph highway to make a clear pass of someone “hovering” around 65 swaying from side-to-side and showing in-consistent acceleration (typical behaviors of cell-phone and/or drunk drivers).

      Or should I just hit the brakes to escape the danger zone (and figure the guy behind me will notice me and slow down)?

      Bottom-line…what’s the difference between speeding and making quick freeway manu-evers to establish a decent space-cushion…am I doing the right thing or…what should I do?

      P.S.- How do dodge someone mimicking your acceleration/de-celeration and trapping you on the side of a freeway was NOT a technique covered in the MSF course I took. 😛

      I want to start to make money online as an affiliate, but have found a lot of software to be expensive, does any one know of free or cheap software I will need on my computer?

      I’m trying to get into writing and posting stories online seems like a great place to start. I’ve heard of figment.com but I don’t know how popular it is. Is there any one writing community site that gets a lot of hits? I mean like thousands, not hundreds. Or if you have any good sites that you personally thought were good, that’s fine too.
