AdsenseMaking Money Online

Google Adsense is one of the easiest and most popular methods of making money online.

It works by adding code to your site.  This code reads your site and determines its content and displays ads according to that content.

When someone clicks on the banner or ad, you get paid.

There are plugins available to make this process easier but they are not absolutely necessary.

Building A List

A great way of making money with your website is to build a list by capturing the email addresses of your visitors.

Nobdy is going to hand over their email address just because you ask for it.  You must offer something in exchange.  This could be a free gift, special offer, money off coupon, free webinar etc

By creating an email list you can keep in contact with your visitors and build a relationship with them leading to trust and confidence in you.

By using an autoresponder, you can send emails to your list at regular intervals offering help, tips, products, resources and even your latest blog posts.

There are many different autoresponders to choose from, free and paid versions.  I use Aweber as it does exactly what I need it to do.  It took some searching and trialling different options but decided Aweber was the one for me.


Other autoresponders could include

Mad Mimi

Mail Chimp

Constant Contact

Campaign Monitor

There are loads of others so if you can’t find what you need from one these above, put in a search in Google and I’m sure you’ll find just the one you need.
