I have been doing a research for a niche blogging topic for my million dollar blog project and have spent hours doing so. There’s lot going on in MDBP community. Many bloggers are fully ready and equipped with their blog topic for the niche markets. To be honest I feel like I am falling little behind. I have registered but haven’t announced my niche blogging topic. I feel things needs to be done in orderly manner and deciding on the blogging topic is the curtail part as it plays key role in the entire string of my million dollar blog project.
As I have already said in previous post that I am not much worried about making $1,000,000 collectively, what is worrying me more is to make that sum independently by one blog. I am sure many committed $1MBP bloggers feeling the same pressure, if not it is going to be a Million Dollar Blog Failure.
Without a doubt the topic for the niche market I want to blog about is the key to success or failure. Firstly the niche blogging topic has to interest me to keep going for longer period; secondly there should be the niche market that is worth more than million dollars. Having said this, I’ve to think will all the niche markets that I have passion, love or interest has the potential of making million dollars? There I doubt. (more…)
I have recently agreed myself and other bloggers to collaborate with ThinkTraffic to create a $1,000,000 blog. I am passionately following the project and willing to give up my best to perform myself while creating unique master piece that anyone can benefit out of it in future dates. I’ve been reading many successful blogger’s story so far and determined to create my own legacy.
It might sound bit crazy but I am confident that it is possible to build. If you have been following $1MBP, there are two goals to be reached.
- Creating Million Dollar collectively in 2 years,
- Creating my own Million Dollar Blog over its life time.
The first goal should be relatively easy to hit the target compare to the second one, as there will be many bloggers working that way. But I am committed and willing to give my best effort to contribute to the revenue figure for this project. I believe this will be the path to create my own million dollar blog over its life time.
“If I cannot do it, I cannot do it” I cannot just stare at blogs thinking I might’ve or haven’t succeeded this million dollar blog game before even actually trying it. Putting full efforts to make it happen is far too away. Here I mean it and really mean it for you. If you haven’t started yet blogging, you should start today, just think about it. Like I have made my decision and went open about it.
If you have already started a blog you might find this $1MBP series very handy for references. One of the reasons behind this million dollar blog project is to record the important stages, keeping in mind of people who will be in a position, where I am today. I aim to publish all these important steps and stages to catch up where I am today. You could always get updates as I progress.
Where am I today?
Today is September 14 2011 and I am at my home. Not Kidding.:) (more…)
Think Traffic team announced The Million Dollar Blog Project that is going to promisingly make the million dollar blogs collectively.We have seen successful Million Dollar Experiment which was manifested by Steve Pavlina’s effort back in days; recently we all have seen the success of Niche Site duel by Pat and Tyrone. Now the trends are towards The Million Dollar Blog Project.
Corbett Barr and his team are the real people behind the Million Dollar Blog Project. I bet Corbett is feeling the heat with his analytic reports, which has already generated 364 comments on this million dollar blog project announced post. I can see lots of bloggers using twitter to show their interest and are joining the Project to create a million dollar blog collectively.
Tips for a Successful Adsense Site
Everyone knows what Coca-Cola is and what Google is. I do not like hot Cola as much as I dislike scattered Google Adsense which is like a dump of trash. However it doesn’t have to be that way to make most out of each. I would rather drink warm water and use other monetization methods. But the problem is either bloggers do not care or do not know the importance of design aspect of monetization.
Adsense is not the only monetization techniques for blogs, but definitely it is one of the most trusted and respected one. Here are important tips to run a successful Adsense monetized site which every bloggers should consider.
You need to understand at least why and how your visitors come to your site. Regardless if your site is a niche blog, static website or forums, there is a reason why people visit your site.
It is very essential to know that people do not come for the advertisement to your site. Which means people are looking for specific, good, unique content? If you have great unique content across your niche, that simply could be the reason why your visitors visit you again and again. Now Traffic means money remember!!
Secondly understanding how you are getting visitors is important too. You can get traffic from various sources. One of the main sources of traffic for your blog should be from Search Engines. This is why you see many bloggers talks and works on Search Engine Optimization. Traffic means money remember!!
Now you have unique contents in your site and are getting many searches engines results. Now optimizing your Adsense units is something tricky to get most out of it.
Blog Theming and Location for Adsense: -
Location for Adsense unit is very important if you are willing to monetize your site with Google Adsense. Make sure you locate these units in prominent location. It is always good to use professional looking theme which looks clean and Adsense is blended. Certain ads locations tend to be more successful than others. However the best location always varies depending blogs, you can always check the heat map to generate in-depth information about your pages. (more…)
Affiliate Payment Structures
I have already discussed what affiliate marketing is, here in this post I will looking into the payment structure of Affiliate Marketing on publishers/bloggers point of view. There are many different Affiliate networks and other independent affiliate advertisers who advertised their product to get more traffic or sales.
Advertisers and Businesses marketing to get the final sale are very common and very obvious. This type of affiliate promotions is called Pay Per Sale. One of the best examples for Pay per Sale programs is Amazon.com’s affiliate (associate) program.
As you know it is one of the most popular affiliate programs but Pay per sale is not only structure for affiliate payment. There are mainly three affiliate payment methods, those are broken down below. They are Pay Per Lead, Pay Per Sale, and Pay per Click.
Pay Per Lead: Pay per Lead is a type of affiliate marketing payment structure where affiliates gets paid by advertisers based on set targeted action. Pay Per Lead affiliate target could be anything from sign up for newsletter or trial offer sign-ups to software download. Pay per lead do not have any set rules of standard, however for much clearer vision, Lead is just like an action that is expected to be carried out where payment is based only on qualifying leads.
Pay Per Sale: Pay Per Sale is very much similar to Pay Per Lead. It is more inclined to closing the Affiliate transaction to final Sales of the product or service. Commission payment could however vary either on percentage basis or a set price.
Pay Per Click: Pay per click is different to Pay per sale and Pay per lead model because advertisers pay the publishers when the advertisement is clicked. Pay per click is highly popular with Search Engines. The rate for PPC usually depends on Cost Per Click that is set by these search engine network operators which itself operates on bidding model and varies according to the competition of the keyword phrase.
Executing and optimizing all three methods on blog is highly profitable and many bloggers are being able to successfully implement it side by side.
