Hi, i’d like to weigh in also, since i’ve taken chris’ blogger and marketing courses, i’ve heard him make these points before, but this article really brings it home because of the real life example. it was really hard for me to create my site over a year ago and i’m still working on the messaging, etc., the learning never ends. so i say more power to roman, because his hook, the “first really honest website about itself” is actually pretty novel and refreshing. hey, we need more honesty! there’s a lot of hype on this topic as we know. but if you keep educating your audience like chris said, they eventually will want to see how you progress and get on board when you do succeed. i think any posts you can write about the mechanics of the website also, as chris suggested, especially wordpress, since it appears you are using it, would be great. i would also suggest getting on linkedin and joining some groups. good luck!Of course i did not know all this when i started 3 years ago. i came to the mmo niche golf course green – i had no idea. one evening 3 years ago i was browsing the web and came upon a website (do not remember which one) that gave me the impression that making money with a website is easy. excited, and thinking i found a undiscovered gold mine i started my own website. my lightbulb idea was to make a website about how i make money with my website. brilliant – i would go through the process of building a website, gathering traffic, earning money. i would make money and people would love it.If could offer only one piece of advice for roman: hit the comment circuit for a few months. it’s a great way to find like-minded people who will help you out. the roi isn’t easy to calculate in short term, but from my point of view, the relationships i’ve been building are going the distance. it very difficult to say for sure whether any particular sale is a result of this or that social interaction, but i do wake up and find money in my email, from right out of the blue. feels good.Interesting to see roman’s site being critiqued here chris – i’ve been in touch with him from his early days. one thing i would suggest (and i’ve been telling roman this for years!) is that a lack of content has always been a problem for the site. there’s such a lack on continuity that a community has never really built up around the site. if i’m seeing the dates correctly, there have been 4 posts in the last 200 days. it’s a shame as roman is a terrific writer.
Good stuff (as usual). i just wanted to say that i’m leaning more towards non-adsense type solutions as well as of recently. i’ve found that since both of my adsense accounts were disabled (and my new adsense account has yet to be approved for 2 months and counting), it’s much easier to work with different ad networks. this is because it seems like google has tightened up their restrictions or something as of recently as far as approval is concerned. most ad networks, from what i’ve found, don’t pay nearly as much as adsense. however, i’m currently using infolinks (which is decent) and also chitika (not so good of results thus far). i’d really like to know what other companies have payouts that are reasonable as far as ad networks are concerned. even though i’ve yet to try them, i’ve heard altitude digital partners are pretty good. the same goes for proioxis and contextweb, and lijit to name a few you hopefully haven’t yet. hope this helps everyone a bit. please let us know what kind of experience you may have 🙂.To be honest, i probably missed several other ways that you can monetize your site, but this is a good start! and most certainly there are thousands of other ad networks or affiliate programs out there that you can use. but for the most part all your options for monetization are going to fit in these main categories covered: pay per click networks, cpm ad networks, cpa networks, affiliate networks, direct affiliate programs, selling ad space, creating a product, sell text links, donations, or selling your site.Even if you never monetize your site, you might be able to sell out for a pretty penny! if you build the traffic of your site or otherwise have an audience, there is value there. if the traffic is high enough, you could sell for a lot (think twitter kind of traffic…). and of course, people buy brand new sites all the time that have no traffic or audience based on design and niche (but usually for very cheap).I’m not going to pick a particular monetization strategy until i pick a niche and keyword. right now, i’m thinking that i would like to build an email list and monetize that list with affiliate offers or my own products. however, this is not set in stone, and could change as i pick my niche or as i test different strategies on the same site.
