  • - Create a website that gets followed

  • One of the best ways to make the most money in digital marketing is through the creation of well-designed website. Make sure that your site is easy to navigate and compels targeted visitors to convert - either to sign up under you as referrals, or to purchase the products you are advertising.

  • - Use the power of free bonus content

  • Useful content is what you can use in making the word free, or added bonus, mean money to you. When you offer free or bonus content, like say, free reports or ebooks, when the right people get hold of this report, it can translate into more referrals or purchases. If done properly, social sharing of your free bonus content can be spread virally, and who doesn't want viral traffic?

  • - Learn how to get targeted traffic to your site

  • You can't benefit from your well-designed website, no matter how good your content and free bonus offers are if you don't have the right visitors. So how do you drive targeted visitors to your site? You can try your hand at Facebook Ads, Google Adsense, visit forums, or you can do off-page search engine optimization, also known as link building. Whether you use blogging, social networking, or word of the mouth just to drive traffic, the important thing is to get the attention of the right people.

    There are different ways on how you can successfully make people go to your site through this means - marketing with articles, or the use of written content and submitting it to directories for publishers to pick it up and drive people to your site, you can set up and maintain social network accounts and let people know about your affiliate sites, or you can tap on your contacts - especially the new media savvy ones like popular bloggers and or community managers to spread the word about your sites.
