I have a website and an adsense account. Do I, or should I stick to promoting products that pertain to the theme of the website? For instance, if my website theme is cars, would it be wise to promote say solar power?
Reply
HisbelA Premium
You would need to ask yourself what is the chance that someone looking for your subject would be interested in solar power? Of course, it would be different if your topic was solar powered cars. Do they exist? I do not know, but it would be cool and much better for our pockets and the planet.
Reply
That's what I thought. My website is on hypnotism and I was toying with promoting non related products but I had a feeling that it would probably not be a good idea because it might turn people off.

I think that solar power cars do exist but only experimental right now, I have been living off grid for 4 years and I could never go back to paying all those bills. When I say off grid, I mean no power, gas or water hooked to this house. Might be a good niche for me, finding a niche is going to be the hardest part of this adventure. I could write a mile long list of things I'm interested in and have tried and I find more all the time.
Reply
HisbelA Premium
Wow, livng completely off grid must be an amazing experience. I am sure that there would be lits of people that would like to read about your experiences, and, although most of us would not be as brave as to go for a full disconection, most people would be more than happy to implement some solutions to at least lower down their grid consumption. Specially with the prices these days!
Reply
I don't know if I would describe it as bravery so much as anger. LOL! I live in a place where the power can go off at least once every year sometimes for days in the dead of winter and at minus fourty celcius your house can freeze pretty fast.

One winter the power went out for about twelve hours and when I found myself sitting in my vehicle wasting gasoline to keep warm I decided enough was enough so I got some panels and everything else I needed and went for it. Since I wasn't going to be able to run my power guzzling furnace I shut the gas off. I then realized that the pipes would freeze and burst since they were under the house with the furnace so I shut off the water.

People laugh at me behind my back but when the lights go out in the freezing winter, I'm the one laughing.:)

It does have it's drawbacks though, in winter I really can't leave for more than a day at a time so going on an overnight trip would be difficult because the fire in the wood stove would go out and the house gets really cold. When it snows, the solar panels get covered in snow and they don't produce power so they have to be cleaned off.

But on the positive note, splitting wood keeps me in good shape and it's strangely satisfying. It also forces me to think ahead and plan. Keeps the brain in shape, also very important especially as I get older..

Hi Vern
From what I have been following in this conversation, it seems as though teaching people about living off the grid would be an excellent niche. You share tips, offer advice, review your favorite products you use to make your off the grid life successful, etc. From what I have read so far, it sounds like you are getting to be quite the expert on the topic.
All the best to you as you move forward.

It sounds like a right nightmare to start with, but you have been able to raise from it and create a positive life out of a negative experience, that is commendable. I do really believe that you will be able to give advice to people in lots of DIY things related to energy and off grid solutions. There are millions of people that need to leave out of one grid or another for different reasons, and lots of non for profit organisations looking for solutions to help communities in poor countries too.

Thanks. I was thinking the same thing while writing about it. I could even go a lot further than that. I have always wanted to make my house zero output meaning that everything gets reused and I'm close.

I'm the only one here but I only take one bag of garbage to the dump per month. I use anything that will burn for heat, except plastics, tin cans go to the metal recycler, cat food cans are usually made out of aluminum, organic material gets turned into compost and used in the garden, which I pretty much feed my self on for the entire year, and I even teardown scrap electronics, seperate the metals and make money taking that to the scrap yard.

When I go to the garbage dump I usually come home with more than I brought. I have made a few thousand dollars selling on Ebay what most people consider to be trash. I have found antiques in the trash. Once I went there and found $110 worth of pop cans all in bags as if they were going to take them to the recycler and decided to just throw them away instead.

There are people on Youtube melting down scrap plastics and making things out of it.

One winter when I had nothing to do, which is usually the case around here in the winter, I borrowed a college chemistry text, read it cover to cover and answered all the questions. I even graded myself. Then I went to the garbage dump, found some old car batteries, drained the acid out of them and used the acid to electro purify copper. Of course the empty batteries went to the battery dealer who pays me for them.

The reason I did that is because I want to recycle scrap electronics. I will strip the circuit boards, incinerate them and melt down the remaining metals, cast them into bars and electro refine the copper. The copper will collect on the cathode or negative and the other metals will fall to the bottom of the tank under the anode or positive(it's called anode slime or anode sludge). This anode slime will contain all of the remaining metals like lead, tin, gold, silver, etc. which can also be refined and seperated.

I built a smelter out of an old barrel and was able to melt down aluminum. I am trying to perfect the art of making molds out of sand for casting metals and I'm going to redesign the smelter to fire it with propane. I should be able to melt down iron with it.

I was thinking about making a website dedicated completely to recycling and reusing everything including the kitchen sink. I have always been totally disgusted at the amount of perfectly good stuff we throw away and things we throw away that just shouldn't be in the landfills. We literally throw our money in the garbage. Such a shame we work so hard for it. I could go on forever. I guess I just wrote some of the content for my new website:)

Don't tell anyone but I would like to put the utility companies out of business. LOL!

When I first bought this place, it was in the fall and it wasn't really that cold out but the utility bills were crazy. Then it got really cold and this place was so innefficient that the furnace couldn't get the house warmer than 18 celcius.

A typical gas furnace will run the fan for a short time after the burner goes out to cool it down and put any residual heat into the living space. I would listen to the furnace and I could hear the burner go out but the fan wasn't able to finish cooling the furnace down before the burner started back up. So the furnace never shut down and I had to wear my coat and hat in the house to stay warm. I couldn't even take a shower because it was too cold. Lucky I live alone.

I started to investigate and found no vapor barrier or insulation in the attic or the wall between the garage and house. There were places where frost would collect on the bottoms of the inside walls indicating that cold outside air was leaking into the house under the outside walls. there were even holes from old plumbing under the kitchen cabinets that were left and were leaking cold air into the house. Walking on the kitchen floor was like curling in bare feet. I had to wear my shoes all of the time.

I still have lots of work to do around here because I can lay on the floor in the living room and feel a cold wind comming from somewhere. It is amazing how much heat can be lost through a tiny little crack somewhere and how filling that hole can make a house so much more comfortable. I've learned a lot from this place.

You definitely have lots of very useful information to talk about! I tryied to insulate one of my outside walls that I knew was loosing heat but the company doing it told me that there was no cavity wall because is an old brick support wall. So any ideas in how to insulate it would be great, my gas bill runs up like mad in the winter.
Reply
I would consider two things: If you are thinking about renovating the outside of the house by replacing siding you could use styrofoam on the outside of the house and wrap Tyvek house wrap around the entire outside of the house. If you do that you might want to consider wraping the entire house with styrofoam and Tyvek and then you can side over it. That will add an extra R factor to the entire house. More is better when it comes to insulation.

Another option you could could consider is framing the inside wall over the brick and insulating the cavity. It will be a lot less expensive and you can use 2x4 and insulate with R12 or 2x6 and use R20.

If you frame the inside of the wall you want to make sure that air can pass between the brick and the framing to take away any moisture that might be there. If insulation can't "breath" inside the wall moisture will accumulate and wet down the insulation. Wet insulation won't work because the water will conduct the cold.and rot the insulation. Water also has a funny way of finding it's way inside to the drywall, wall board and flooring and ruining it.

Use a very heavy vapor barrier(6 mil), it is a little expensive but it will pay for itself in the long run. There are also special formed vapor barriers for electrical outlets and switch boxes. I can't remember what they are called off hand but they are fairly inexpensive, about 50 cents each, and you can get them at Home Depot. Well worth the money and the little extra time to install but you will have to move the outlet and switch boxes anyway.

The trick with vapor barrier is to seal it completely using Tyvek tape or whatever the code of your town or city requires so that no air can get through to the inside of the house.

Saying that, If a house is sealed up completely, you will want to make sure that there is somewhere that some fresh air can get into the house. I know it sounds counter productive but having absolutely no air transfer at all into the house from outside can cause humidity build up inside the house.

Too much humidity can make the house very uncomfortable, peal the paint off the inside walls and rot the drywall, wallboard and flooring and even the furniture creating more problems. Excess moisture inside the house can make wood cabinets swell so that you can't get the drawers open, especially particle board, which most cabinets and furniture is made from these days.

Most important of all, in my opinion, is to find a contractor you can trust to do the job properly and not try to cut corners leaving you with a job that has to be reworked or torn out and completely redone. As well he or she will know what is required by city code.

If you feel confident enough, my dad used to always say that if you want a job done properly do it yourself. Always check city and state codes to find out what is required especially if you are going to need to have the inspectors come in and approve it. There's nothing more frustrating than having to redo something because it wouldn't pass inspection.

Be nice to the inspector as well they have to be very well versed as far as building codes go and they can give you pointers that can save you time and money as well as make it easier to get the project to pass inspection. You don't want an angry inspector.

A properly insulated house will not only keep you warmer in the winter but will keep the house much cooler in the summer saving energy on air conditioning and giving you a refuge from the heat.

I hope this gives you somewhere to start.

Wow, thank you so much! It is a wonderful advice. I think I will go with the inside one because restrictions on how the outside needs to look for city regulations and costing. Definitely that is one for a proper contractor, specially having to move electric outlets. Thank you again for your advice, I do really appreciate it.
Best wishes, Hisbel

You're welcome, anytime.

I thought that you might go with the inside one as well because brick on an outside wall makes for a nicer look from the street and it would be a shame to cover it up. Besides, the object is to save money. LOL!

Hi Cameron,

Most if not all Affiliate Programs are free to join. Aweber affiliate program is free to join. https://www.aweber.com/affiliates.htm She mentions one called Shareasale; this is also free to join. You would need to do a Google search to find the program you are looking for. And if you want to promote a certain company, you can search that company to find out if they offer an Affiliate Program. For example, let's say my niche was men's workboots. I would Google men's work boots + Affiliate Program and see what I found.
I hope this makes sense.

A review site is a site where you write articles reviewing various products and services. For example, her website was focused on colic remedies, so she might write a review on a particular product she tried and explain how the price was really good, but the product didn't seem to help much at all. And then she would write about another product she tried and explain how it helped almost immediately, but costed a bit more. Perhaps she also tried a natural remedy like diluted ginger essential oil, or maybe even an infant massage and wrote articles about those.

No.3 Building a list ?
What does that mean? email lists?
Reply
RoopeshG Premium
Yes. Once your website starts getting some traffic, you can start putting an opt in form. This allows visitors to give you their e-mail address.

Once you have your e-mail list, you can send them info on your latest blog, special offers, e-books etc and in the future they can become future prospects for whatever it is that you are offering.

Hope this helps

Actually, building a contact list is one of the most powerful ways to monetize your website. You can market to the same group of people over and over again, different products and programs you're offering. It's a good way to maximize results from people who have already been on your website, instead of relying solely on new traffic.

They don't even have to come back to your website, but you can stay in touch and sell more products to them. It follows the premise that it's easier to sell to a warm prospect rather than a cold suspect, because they already know who you are and what you do. After all, they signed up to join your list!

However, as with any other marketing method, you want to offer value the majority of the time rather than just selling. You can send information about helpful new articles you post on your website along with the link, which will keep them in the loop and draw them back to your site.

I'm new to this program, but I'm sure someone will be available to help you. It looks like they've got an excellent support system here.

Basically a word press blog is a template with a place for everything and it tells you what to put where. For example there's a place for a picture, put a picture there. There's a place to write an article, put your words in there. Select a plug-in from a list and it automatically put it onto your site. You will discover there are many plug-ins that allow you to do lots of cool things.

It's really pretty simple. You don't have to learn how to write code or anything like that. As you learn, you may want to get into certain advanced features, but it's not necessary.

As with most new endeavors, it's best to take it just one step at a time. Every little accomplishment gets you that much further and feels good. If you try to look at it as just one big project, it can be overwhelming. But just do one thing at a time, and you'll be fine.

Reply
4uburn4me Premium
You can look at programs like Clickbank and see different products to promote and what they pay. I have 2 products I promote from Clickbank. One of them is great at getting people to click on it but has not made any conversions yet.

Amazon Affiliate is always a good ad to have because the majority of people trust Amazon over a random add.
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
Brittany,

It's not about who pays you the most. That is going to vary depending on which affiliate program you join. It's about picking the best affiliate products that help your audience and obviously pay you well. There are a lot of crappy products out there that pay you a lot. But then you end up promoting things that hurt your audience. In turn they won't trust you and made a quick buck instead of long term money by building trust with your audience. So don't just view it in the standpoint of making the most money. That will happen naturally if you're following the training and helping the people that visit your audience.
Reply
RWaters Premium
I agree with Eddy. His comments are spot on. Look for products that convert easily more than what they pay. It is better to have a lot of easily conversions than high paying conversions. If you find an avenue that is both high converting and high paying that would be great, but high conversion trumps high paying in my opinion.

Good question. According to the Amazon terms that will not matter. There are two things that will bump a person out of using a referral link. After a 24-hour period, if they log back into Amazon to order instead of using your refferal link, you will not get further commissions. Furthermore, if they bought something from a different referral link 2 hours previously, and then they click n your refferal link to make a purchase, your refferal link will then take over for 24 hours (unless they click yet another persons link). Hope that cleared it up a bit

#4 Eventually create my own product (possible as lead magnet)

Any thoughts?

These all look like great objectives. I have thought a lot about #4. I think that would be a very important thing to do, but its difficult to create a really quality lead product.

Hey. I just wanna clarify something. I am in the middle of starting a blog through square space it's a relationship and fashion blog for curvy woman (kurves and kisses) could I not just use this. Or is there something more specific about the type of websites where going to be using?

Good question. I'm not sure about Square Space, I think they are their own website building platform.

We use WordPress for a number of reasons and all the training is geared towards using WP.

If you own the domain, and go forward here with all the training, the WA premium membership allows you to host up to 25 sites here. So the cost is very low here compared to most places.

I'd point your domain name from you hosting platform to WA to use the free cloud hosting here.

Then just learn WP. There's a reason WP is the number one website building platform in the world.

But I'm sure you can do the training here without switching over too.

That's my 2 cents.

Todd makes some very strong and valid points here.

The real issue you may have, though of course, this would depend entirely on your skill level and knowledge of the platforms, is that (As Todd mentioned) the platform in use for training and hosting at WA is WordPress.

Now if you are able to translate what you learn in the training. back to your Square Space website then you will be just fine because apart from the actual WordPress design stuff, the rest of it is effectively platform independent, aka, you can use it anywhere, so Google won't care if your site is powered by WP, SSpace, Joomla, straight HTML5/CSS or whether it is hosted here at WA, SSpace, GoDaddy etc...

If you are considering moving out of SSpace then take a look here for a little rundown http://www.websitebuilderexpert.com/squarespace-vs-wordpress/ it may just help you decide which way to go.

If you want to move your domain name, you can move it to any registrar, including WA/SiteDomains, GoDaddy, etc, it matters not, for the purposes of operational status at least, where it resides.

The hosting, again you can use any host, whether it be SSpace, your domain name registrar, or you point the domain to a hosting package elsewhere, such as here at SiteHosting. There are a number of options open to you, depending on your plan and how long you plan to stay at WA.

I myself do not use WA/SiteHosting/SiteDomains as I already have premium grade cloud/hybrid hosting for a number of other projects, and my domain names are registered in various other places already, so I saw no reason to move or point them here.

Best wishes

Neil

Thank you for taking the time to invest in my training. Understanding this is half the battle. I was curious about the e-book you wrote. I know that content is extremely important part of the success in page ranking and it being a valuable informational site. I am terrified of my writing, not because I don't have valuable knowledge or thoughts but I struggle with grammatical issues and spelling. Any suggestions or advise on the process of doing a e-book. Does it have to be extremely long?
Reply

An ebook doesn't have to be long. I made one from a post I wrote and then paid an editor to create the book, etc.

Don't worry about your grammar, that can be learned and improved upon.

I was so slow about writing when I first started and had a hard time organizing my thoughts. As I practiced with each post and got feedback, I became better.

I'm not the best, but pretty good and it just takes time to build your skill set in whatever you do.

Thank you for your thought out feed back! It does help. I wrote and self published a book on amazon. Every time I read it I find more errors and just hang my head.

I did pay attention in school. I promise!

do I need a local license to work online? I don't like the idea of the government coming after me! what kind of taxes do I have to pay at the end of the year?

Hi,

Taxes, like any other business, are dependent upon the amount of product you sell. If you sell enough to make a decent living, then yes, you will have to pay taxes at the end of the year. Don't forget though, because it is your own business, you will also have other things you can write off.
