Making money sites vs. selling products, or both?
Last Update: Feb 3, 2018
THIS IS WHAT I DO
Being a web designer and author by profession, I've designed more than a few sites here. I have even moved my web business to WA and have designed 2 sites for clients. I have a few sites that are for selling products and a couple promoting Wealthy Affiliate and Jaaxy, among other affiliates.
PROMOTING WEALTHY AFFILIATE
I have realized that promoting WA and gaining referrals is much more lucrative. By creating a simple page with some content and a "Discover More" link, you can then send your visitors to another page with more content and where they fill out their name and email address in order to receive a "GIVEAWAY." This builds an email list where you can correspond daily with your "clients."
OFFERING AN INCENTIVE IS CRUCIAL
Now this "GIVEAWAY" or "FREE PROMOTIONAL GIFT" can be something that will intrigue your visitors and should relate to what they clicked on your site in the first place for. I am writing an eBook of what they can expect when they click to my next link. It is giving information to them with a summary of the value of Wealthy Affiliate and what to expect when they join. I am only writing about Level 1 -- a brief overview of all it entails, which is what they will receive as a Starter Member. The eBook doesn't have to be long--maybe around 15 or 16 pages or so.
VIDEO MARKETING IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA
In order to gain exposure with your business, you must offer something to keep their interest peaked. I am also creating a video. (Did I say video? Yikes, I've never done one of those before!) This video will be a short but thorough rundown of what WA is all about and it will go next to the email form that they fill out. This will give them more information on what to expect when they click onto the next page, and the odds in them clicking on after watching the video will rise considerably! There will also be a much better chance in them trying a Starter Membership at WA!
So, a quick rundown of pages:
Initial Page with Content, Name & Email page with more Content, Free Giveaway and Video. They click onto the next page and it sends the Giveaway to their email, and they are then on the page to sign up with WA.
RESIDUAL INCOME INTO THE FUTURE
So, that's where I am. I think the greatest thing you could do for yourself would be to create a make money online site promoting Wealthy Affiliate because it will build up referrals who may go on to become Premium members. This will create residual income for years to come! For those who are new, you can review the rundown by clicking the WA Affiliate Program link on the left side.
I would love to hear your thoughts on THIS one!
All the best, friends!
