However, as most internet marketers would tell you, this is not true as making money online is a serious business and hard work has to go into it.

This article aims to help anyone trying to make money online with a website by suggesting ways to increase your online money making profits today.

1. Increase your website traffic

Increasing your website traffic today can and will increase your online profits because the more people that you get to visit your website, the more chances of a sale being made. The more qualified the website traffic the better meaning that it would be best for someone to get “Biscuits" if they were searching for it online. Some ways to increase your website traffic are found below.

Firstly, traffic exchanges today are used by many people to increase website traffic to their websites. While this is not wrong, you must know the type of website traffic you are getting and how to use it. The website traffic that you are getting from such programs are website owners and if you promote a tool that they can use to increase their own website traffic or promote a website traffic generation newsletter to them, you can increase your own website traffic substantially when you send a newsletter telling them about the latest traffic generation tool you got. Therefore to make money from traffic exchanges you need to use it with a landing page leading to a newsletter signup otherwise you are wasting your surfing time.

On the other hand, most people who use such exchanges remark that a plain signup page for a business opportunity does not really work. A better idea some have argued is to promote a newsletter signup page which will then send automated emails to the signup via an autorespondor. Internet marketing studies have shown that it takes 7 views of an offer online before anyone would consider making a purchase thus validating this strategy.

Secondly, search engine optimisation (SEO) is the key term that most people online seem to be fascinated about when trying to make money online. The reason for this is simple. Most people today go to search engines to find out about anything online. If you can get more high search rankings for your own website, this can translate into more qualified visitors to your website from the search engines and greater sales and you can then make more money with anything that you are promoting. Casting aside the more technical programming jargon, the twin most important things to making money online in terms of SEO is inbound links and good content on your website. There are several ways to get good inbound links. You can buy them online, or you can do reciprocal linking or you can write articles and publish them. In all these ways, you can increase the number of inbound links to your website and increase its website traffic as well both from the website that you link is on but from the search engines eventually.

2. Start a Newsletter

This is a quick tip that even the smallest website owner can adopt. If you are new to starting a newsletter, why not just go to Yahoogroups.com and create a Yahoogroup for your newsletter and post the code onto your website so that people can subscribe for your Newsletter. Most people with websites selling things have discounts from time to time or have new products. You can make more money from your existing customers that like your products by telling them about your latest promotion or latest new food item.

3. Make money from your website using Google Adsense

Once you gain website traffic to your website, you could always signup as a publisher with Google and make money from people that land at your website. Even if the person does not want to purchase anything from your website, they might click on the Ad by Google and you make money from that visitor. A quick tip that has proven very useful is that you should always match your Google Adsense settings to the colour of your website page as far as possible so that the visitor to your website thinks its part of the website. This would result in higher clickthrough ratios and allow you to make more money from Adsense.

Finally, one would have to spend time writing out a plan of action before any of the ideas mentioned above can help you make more money with your website. The golfing adage paralysis by analysis still rings through in this situation. Many people get so fascinated with the various internet marketing strategies available online that they forget to actually sit down and carry it out. Write a plan of action, including timelines and amount of money and time you are willing to spend and show it to your friends and then get down to doing it. Making money online, coupled with great determination can yield you massive profits. Here’s wishing you all the best in your quest for online profits.
