Mainstream Revenue Generation
Given the continuing explosion of mainstream ad revenue and affiliate pay per sale opportunities, there’s many ways to capitalize on these opportunities. Here’s a quick review of the differing mainstream models:
Good news: Gets the attention of the particular community that is interested in a particular category of content/interest. The users and their opinions/contributions are themselves the content. Runs itself once it reaches a critical mass. PPC can be triggered using particular threads.
Bad news: No ready made forum script that is PPC-centric. Most are banner-centric (ie., phpadsnew), if that. Getting a critical mass means a large repository of existing posts by post seeders and must be on-topic, entertaining or informative enough for people to find your forum compelling. Initial traffic is nonexistent so you have to find roughly similar traffic/interest pools.
Solution: Webmasterlabor.com provides paid posters that are trained to focus on your topics and simulate real online discussions that add value to your content offerings. We also provide mini-articles that can be launching areas for promotions. Finally, we also provide mainstream traffic that can be filtered by your forum to a % that would bookmark (once there’s enough topics and posts/replies)
Good news: There’s a lot of interest in this form of web communication recently although its been around awhile and has evolved quite a bit. Many search engines find it easy to crawl and give it some priority (although the latter can be overly exaggerated and overly relied upon). It’s greatest asset though is RSS and it’s update-friendly/episodic nature. It also has tools for quick syndication, community building.
Bad news: Who’s got time for entries and comments? Blog traffic depends on your keywords and who links to you or syndicates you. Adding relevant links and not just garbage link exchanges take time.
Solution: Webmasterlabor.com provides custom research and writing services for blog entries at very affordable prices. We also provide trained and experienced writers on a recurring basis that focus specifically on your topics and sub-topics. Moreover, we take care of your pings, blog submissions, linkbacks, comments, and we also provide pre-filtered pre-bookmarked mainstream traffic.
Good news: These sites focus on a limited range of topics but provide deep information. These ARE the types of pages that surfers are looking for since most are looking for information BEFORE they buy. These are great for “prepping” the consumer for the buy opportunity. Moreover, if structured correctly these pages can be bookmarked resources that interested consumers can keep for themselves or share with fellow interested consumers. The focus of article sites is to provide timely information in a non-intimidating way.
Bad news: Generating original content usually costs a lot. Research can be problematic. Cross-referencing and verifying information can be a headache. Moreover, you have to get your material edited.
Solution: Webmasterlabor.com provides content research and writing services at affordable prices. We also provide BULK packages and monthly recurring text content services. Edits are provided as a FREE supplemental service.
Good news: Some search engines and many consumers favor websites that provide a ready pool of assembled links that focus on certain topics. Usually these are arranged in terms of interests and categories. These sites provide a centralized location for consumers and researchers looking for helpful information on the Internet unencumbered by off topic results or spam pages.
Bad news: Researching relevant and actually helpful sites take time. Also, plain links with no descriptions are less helpful than more thoroughly researched and described links. Categorization may prove labor intensive, too.
Solution: Webmasterlabor.Com provides the trained staff to search for and study relevant online resources. We can also provide mini-commentaries or full articles based on these resources. We then input or pass these links and descriptions/ratings/articles on to you for input.
The Internet is filled with opportunities–Behind every communication forum is a revenue opportunity.
