Here is a simple and obvious statement. To achieve success in the Internet Marketing game, you must get Website Traffic.
OK, this is not a revelation and I don’t proclaim to be the first person to say this. However, It is a simple fact that making money from websites is a numbers game – and that number is website traffic in the form of visitors.
So success is simple. All you have to do is get as many visitors as possible. How? I’ll be covering various methods in my Website Traffic Building Category as my blog progresses. So make sure you keep coming back. Or even better Subscribe Here to be kept up to date.
Here is a really simple example of how it works.
I have a really super niche website that gets about 30 visitors a day coming almost exlusively from the search engines. This website took about 4 hours to set up. I do no work on this website anymore, it just sits there and makes me some money each month all by itself.
It makes money in two ways:
- Google Adsense
I know that as long as I get visitors it will make money. I know this because of my website statistics, Adsense statistics, and Amazon Affiliate statistics.
I know that for a certain amount of visitors that come to my website, I will make more than $20 from Adsense.
I also know that for every 100 visitors that click through to the Amazon.com products that I am promoting, 4 will buy at least one product and I will make between $10 and $20 per sale.
If you do your sums, you will see that I will never get rich from this website alone. I know that.
But what would happen if I created 100 of these websites for different niches, or I increased the traffic???
You see, it all depends on numbers. If you have a website that is monetized and you get visitors, then you will make money.
