Since the first time I decided to participate in the crowded niche there is one thing I concern about “how do I make money online?”
First time I think of it, I just asking myself … “as consumers, why I am willing to spend money buying online stuff from others using paypal … “.
Several reasons that came up in my mind was the offers should meet what I want, the payment process is easy to follow, the product is popular among users, there is proof about the result, and I trust the product or the creator.
In a case of make money from blog, particularly when blogger use pay per click platform as one of the ways to make money online, those reasons could be taken into account. Pay per click platform is known as the easiest way to make money online because there is less efforts to do with big chances to earn money. To gain the maximum result from pay per click platform at least your content should meet readers needs, the blog navigation is easy to use, and the ads offers are relevant so you can earn more from every traffic you have.
But, the fact shows that make money online, include pay per click platform, is not as easy as it says particularly to get as much money as you can. In this situation, build trust to your costumers could give significant benefits for the long term business.
Long term benefits is important in make money online campaign, isn’t it?
When people trust you, you have more space to develop your online business. You can drive costumer attention on your online campaign and support your regular online income. Everything should be easier when you gain their trust.
I have applied adfly in this blog as one of a ways to make money online. My first theory is that “visitor trust can affect earning from make money online with text link advertisement platform”. If visitors trust us as blog owner, they won’t bother our using adfly platform while establishing your profesionalism as blogger.
Here is the first month of adfly clicks in May 2012 :
And here is adfly clicks in June and July 2012 :
As you see on pictures above, the clicks grow from 24 clicks in a month (May reports) to 117 clicks in a month (July reports)
If you run text-link-advertisement platform, and the earning stats grows very well (visitors made click to the link ads) and earn you some cash, that’s a good sign. If it’s not, then may be the program is not for your visitors or they don’t like it.
Higher stats on your link ads earning shows higher trust of your visitors. Link ads is not a new thing for online people, so if they click on the ads through your recommendation (blogs, facebook, twitter, etc) that’s could mean they trust you.
The logical things to overcome the risk on “the world of anonymity” is by strong evidence and disclose profile. So, if you want to be success online then try your best to be popular (well-known) is the best option to achieve. The more people know you the better your chance to get their trust.
