Online Advertising Strategies That Can Create Revenue

by Hilal Abdelwali

Everyone wants to know how to make money online, and yet few people really take the time to research the topic. While many of the following options can make you money, you have to be serious about getting involved and learning everything you can to be a successful online marketer. However, the beauty of doing this is that it can create residual income that pays off year after year, not just in knowledge but in income too.

The List Of Online Advertising Possibilities

Affiliate Advertising - Everyone knows about Google's Adwords or pay-per-click mechanisms to make money through online affiliate advertising. However, there are so many different companies out there that offer affiliate advertising, with different options like cost-per-action (CPA) that you got to investigate all your options before you decide it's not for you.

Sponsored Advertising - This can be harder to get as you have to have someone interested in advertising on your blog, your website, or elsewhere and they sponsor an ad to be placed somewhere. The fees depend on how much traffic you have coming to your sites.

In-Text Advertising - There are numerous companies that sell inline text links that you can add to your websites. It may be a little distracting for your readers, but it is a good way to generate some additional income.

Pay-Per-Lead Advertising - If you join a CPA network, you can actually make money from getting people to fill out a form, a survey, or adding themselves to an advertiser's email list. In a recession, this can be easier to do than trying to get someone to buy a product or click and ad when they have no money to spend anyways.

Social Networking Ads - Why not try creating a campaign that uses the ads sold on a site like Facebook? They use Social Ads that can be combined with your own affiliate offers to help you generate interest without having your own website.

Advertise Your Own Products - If you have the time and the creativity, why not create a few infoproducts and try to market them online through third party vendors? Pay them a small commission and you can even set up instant delivery over the Internet, pocketing the extra income.

Buy A Print Ad - You can still try advertising your affiliate or your own products using print ads in specialty magazines, a church's newsletter, or even a national magazine. Just be sure you don't commit to a budget that is going to wipe out any profits you get from sales. Also, if you do it with affiliate offers you are going to have to be sure it doesn't conflict with your terms of service before you try to create a campaign this way.

Advertise For Free Too - Since this is the Internet, there's plenty of places you can advertise for free too. You can advertise on Craigslist or other free meeting areas, as long as it doesn't violate the terms of service.
