An online business that works around the promise of Google AdSense can be a smart thing to do. With AdSense, you do not have to sell anything, the percentage of people clicking on your links are reliably good, and all you have to do is drive targeted traffic to your website, and supply your readers with good information.
For some people, this is the ideal business – because you do not have to process any refunds. For some people, this is even better than selling ebooks! But in my opinion, I disagree. I think ebooks are slowly harder to make money from, but the profit margin that you receive is much greater than AdSense clicks.
And when affiliate marketing comes into play, this is also a good contender for an ideal business model. With affiliate marketing, you do not need to create a product, create a sales page, and in some instances … you do not even have to create website. Yes, this is true – but still hard.
Google AdSense is just one of the easiest profit streams that you will find online. But do not let the ease fool you. Even though the AdSense business is easy to get into, it is not necessarily the easiest thing to make money with. After all, you still have to do the regular things to make money from your site.
You have to drive traffic, you have to get repeat visitors to your site, you have to position your ads in the right place, you have to limit the amount of ads on each page, and etc. AdSense is great, but do not think that you will wake up with hundreds of dollars in your account within the next 24 hours. Things just do not work like that.
Instead, focus on generating income one step at a time. The more you focus on building a business from the ground up, the more you will be inclined to have the success that you are looking for. Slowly your email list will grow; slowly your responsibilities will increase; and slowly you will come closer to your dream of total financial independence.
It's not rocket science to make money with Google AdSense … it's just that so many newbies get hooked on the idea that they will make a boatload of cash overnight from AdSense, and then when they're hit with the hard reality that things are harder than what they seem … they give up.
This is the all too often "classic tale" of the newbie online business owner. They try technique after technique with little longevity with the technique, and then reach the decision that the technique simply does not work. I find this to be incredibly wrong.
The marketing techniques that they do implement and try to do DOES indeed work. They are just looking for instant profits. And things do not happen this way online – especially if you have a zero dollar advertising budget.
If you're looking to earn money with Google AdSense, take your time and market your site for an entire year. By the end of the year if your profits does not add up and align with all of the hard work that you've put in, then you should cancel the project, and do something else. Take this advice to heart.
Good luck with earning money from Google AdSense today.
