Which has better ROI – to produce content to your blogs or to revenue sharing sites?

When you are starting and don’t know what to do to make your money, you’ll listen many things and “tips”. One of them is about writing content to revenue sharing sites. One revenue sharing site is a website where you can publish your own content and make some money according to revenue that website gets. So if you write 100 texts for one website and they earn $1000 from advertising, affiliate programs etc. so you will receive part of that money.



It sounds good, because those websites get more visitors monthly, but in practice, it doesn’t mean your content will get more visitors automatically – in other words, you’ll need work to get traffic, in the end.



Two old and popular revenue sharing websites are HubPages and Squidoo. Some years ago, Squidoo started to have some difficulties to control content quality and, later, was sold to HubPages. HubPages has a stronger quality control process and I guess it helped them to keep in the business. But it means it’s more difficult to get your articles published (and they work with English content only), so in the end, I prefer to publish my articles in my own websites. It has returned me a better ROI, at least until now.



But, if you don’t want to spend money with domain registration and hosting, you can create some web 2.0 properties (like blogger.com) and make money from there. It will may have less traffic and consequently to get less money, but you’ll avoid expenses in your first affiliate/blogger steps.

How to get more sales in a blog?


It’s same story: you create a first (or new) blog, write passionately about your hobbies, jobs, knowledge etc. and, in end of month, you earn… $0.00 from sales. Well, I know how you feel, my friend, but don’t cry. Maybe, there is something you don’t know – and it’s what is causing your pain (and money lack).

But, what is missing? You selected a good (and well paid) niche, you like that niche (and can write impressively) but… you aren’t getting money! That’s simple: you are teaching, but not selling.

Let me explain: If you want to make money from blog, you need write good texts for teach and sell. It means your visitors should learn about that subject and identify good books, tools or softwares to learn more and get more done. If you teach them, but don’t awaken in them an interest in buying certain goods or services, so you won’t get your commission.

I know, you are sad now, because you thought you could make money without selling anything, but it doesn’t mean you should sell anything – you can (and must) select really good products and services to “advertise” in your blog.

Now, if you understood what you need do, I suggest you search copywriting tips to help you to write or edit your texts to get more conversion rates. Good luck!

How to become blogging in a passive income again?

Oh man, this is one million dollar question! Who didn’t dream to create a blog, write few blogposts and “make money while sleeping”? Actually, it isn’t wrong to say you will make money while sleep, but it will require more work (while awake) than you expected.

So, if you wish to have a passive income from blogs, you need understand some things:

a) There isn’t profit without traffic – if you want your blog makes money, so you need get visitor traffic. It’s one of difficult tasks.

b) Good conversions come from good (and planned) content – that’s your other challenge.

So you need a strategy to produce good content and bring good traffic. If you get to do it every day, you’ll have a gold mine in your hands!

Some guys try to implement autoblogs – blogs updated with fresh content automatically – in order to get money from Amazon products or Chitika advertising. Usually, they don’t use Adsense program there because they know they can be banned if their content doesn’t have quality. BUT, autoblogging doesn’t mean to produce trash content! If you are smart, you can develop a good strategy to use autoblogs with high quality content and it won’t require so much from your time.

How to do it? Well, it’s another “one million dollar question”, but briefly, you need think about tools to help you to write not to content from steal someone else. And if you get to produce and schedule enough content, you’ll can write texts for two monthes in only one morning or afternoon!

Blogging As Linkbuilding

If you are following our blog for some time, you know we recommend blogging as a marketing tactic. But blogs are used only for direct communication purposes? No, they aren’t.

Another common use of blogs is linkbuilding. Firstly, you need understand search engines don’t recommend it. Blogs should be used only for informative and communicative goals. But your competitors can be using blogging as linkbuilding, so my opinion is: know how to use it wisely and you’ll can face your competition without taking big risks.

How started blogs for backlinks?

Google Search, Bing and all main search engines consider links to your website (backlinks) as positive votes, recommendations. So, when someone realized creating links to his/her website from other places could rank up, blogs were one way.

Getting backlinks for websites or blogs

One simple way to get backlinks is writing and publishing articles in article directories – and it’s called Article Marketing – with backlinks pointing at money sites or blogs. So, you’ll get backlink from those article directories and other webmasters republishing that your content.

But, you can also publish some info in your blog, letting content republishing with a backlink creditting your authorship. This way, if someone wants to publish your content, he/she can, since one backlink be created.

To provide a RSS feed is another way to get your articles crawled and republished in blog networks or RSS feed directories. They can be one way to get some automated backlinks – less work, more results.

Well, it isn’t easy to get good backlinks for money sites and blogs, because many automated ways are spammy and can harm your business. So do it slowly and properly, and you’ll have a solid and profitable business.
