How to Make Money Online With Ezine Advertising
Advertising in ezines is a great way to get targeted traffic to your website. The first step in learning how to make money online with ezine advertising is to learn how to find ezines that are appropriate for your niche. You can advertise in a bunch of newsletters, but if they are the wrong ones you won’t build a list or make money.
There are 4 specific ways to find ezines to advertise in that are a good fit. It should go without saying that you have already picked your topic or niche and that you have some keywords that you are using. You want to find newsletters that accept advertisements in your niche that have a list.
1. Google Search
The first way to find ezines is to use Google search to find the top ranked websites for your chosen keywords. The top 10-50 sites…more or less, depending on your niche…are probably getting a lot of clicks and therefore a lot of traffic.
Make a list of each of the sites in the top 10-100…depending on your niche and how much time you have for this project.
Hint: don’t forget to look in the lower left corner at the “related searches” and look there. Sometimes that will get you a really great match that you won’t find otherwise.
The disadvantage to this method is the sites may, or may not, have newsletters or be actually building a list.
2. Narrow Your Google Search
In the Google search, instead of just typing in your keyword, add the word ezine or newsletter. Click on those results and see if they are capturing viewer information (do they have an opt-in box) and if they offer a newsletter.
Once you have found through Google a site where they are list building and have a newsletter you want to contact the publisher. For most sites you can do that either by finding a “contact us” button right on the site…usually you will find it at the top or the bottom of the site.
If you don’t find a contact us link, then go to www.BetterWhoIs.com and type in the domain name of the site. That works for most sites. If you don’t have success by either of those methods, then they won’t be a good fit, so take them off your list!
