Can I Be profitable

by 4 comments

So about a month ago i started a social network with the free networking website ning.

If any of you are familiar with they allow you to make a social networking site using there software.

Anyway i started the site and i am doing pretty well. The site has been up for 28 days and already has 350+ members but im not going to lie ive put in a good hour every day getting these members to my site.

Any way they allow you to put google adsense ads on your social network but it cost 20 dollars a month so i was thinking about putting a couple of the google adsense videos on my site because i think that would attract the most people to click them.

But im wondering with the amount of traffic im getting which is in the picture below around 200 unique visitors a day can i actually make back the 20 dollars i have to pay to put the ads up and make profit.

If you guys have any suggestions to how i can be profitable i would really appreciate it.

      I've been studying ning for awhile. I like it but haven't figured it out yet...

      If you've got 350 'active users' that come back again and again, for god's sake spend the $20 for at least three months and see if it pays for itself. If you can't afford to go $60 out of pocket to test that you're not ready yet.

      Sell some ad blocks down that right hand side and then ditch their ads and do your own. And while you're at it pay the extra and get your own domain name put on it. Just be sure to tell your group.

      You can always sell add space on widgets in the left sidebar, or even under their adds on the right sidebar.

    there has to be a way to draw those people into buying something. I would do it in a very soft sale consultative type of way.

    That is pretty fast growth for a ning site from what I have seen in joining a few social marketing type of ning sites.

    I would jump on the 20 bux deal. You have more control of other aspects of how the site operates too, if I remember correctly.

    I believe you can email all the members too, but I think you would want to have them opt in to some sort of niche related news letter.

    Like I said there must something those people would love to buy from you. You have an almost captive audience. As long as you provide value and are not too pushy you should become a total mega marketer in time.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Haven't Posted in a long while, been off of the scene on IM even longer. Can anyone offer some advice as to where to get restarted? I've made some income from Fiverr in the past by writing review articles, not sure if Fiverr is still a good platform though. Any help would be greatly appreciate also more than willing to become an apprentice and work for the knowledge, not the money.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    The only way to handle having many massive daily goals is by doing them one moment at a time. Don't listen to the narrow-minded people who say that you have to focus on 1 thing and do it will at the expense of everything else. If you want everything, if you want to be financially successful, and healthy, and have great relationships, and be happy, and learn every day, and have family time and more, you're in luck, because you can have it all!
