Make $50 per Click?
It used to be (way back in the day) that you could toss up any old website with junk content, slap on some Google Ads and make money.
People were putting up hundreds of these websites and making bank, until one day, without warning, Google slapped all of these folks back into the stone age.
It seems Google didn’t like the junk content on the sites, and frankly, Google had a good point.
After that, it was a lot harder to make money with Google ads on your site, even with good content. Usually this was because the amount you got paid per ad was just too little to make it worthwhile.
But there are still folks making serious money with this exact model.
And it’s not rocket science, either.
Go to Google ads keyword planner, and find the most expensive words like online colleges, insurance, loans, mortgages and attorneys.
Choose a topic based on how much money you can earn per click. Yes, it probably won’t be a topic you’re excited about, so just get excited about the income.
Now build a website, create content and drive traffic.
Stop rolling your eyes. Yes, there’s work to be done. Building the site? That’s pretty easy. Just hire someone if you need to. Create content? Outsource it if you don’t want to.
Traffic? Okay, that one’s a little trickier. Either get good at SEO, or get good at spending $1 on advertising to make $2 in clicks. There are courses, and right now you’re probably stuck at home anyway. So go learn.
Or if you’re into social media, then go that route.
One more thing – you need to get approved by Google to run their ads, called AdSense. This used to be super easy, but now they’re kinda picky. Don’t apply until you find out the best way. Do your research. It’s not rocket science – you’ve just got to get it right, that’s all.
Having trouble getting Google to say yes? Approach them again after your site has a little history. In the mean time, use one of these to monetize your site:
- Amazon Native Shopping Ads
- MadAds Media
- OIO Publisher
- SHE Media
- Sovrn/Commerce (formerly VigLink)
I probably missed some, but you get the idea.
Recap: Pick a HIGH paying keyword, build a site around that keyword, monetize it with advertising (or affiliate products, if appropriate) and send traffic.
Yes, I know many of you have seen this model before, but are you doing it?
And for those of you who are just getting started with online marketing – you’ve got your plan, now get busy.
Profits? I’m guessing if you don’t dawdle, you can be making money in about 2 weeks or so.
Goal? $100 a day starting in 30 days is a good goal to begin with. Next goal? See if you can ramp it up to $1,000 a day.
You’ll make some mistakes along the way and you might even get frustrated with the whole thing at times. But if you keep going, you’ll get to the day when one click earns you dinner for two, and you’re getting more than just a few clicks every single day.
The key is in picking a HIGH paying keyword.
Need Fast Cash? Do This:
Sell stuff on eBay, Etsy and any other marketplace that works for you.
What can you sell? Anything you can make or get your hands on. You might have some things in storage right now that you can sell. Maybe you order things to sell, or talk to your friends and neighbors, or…
Just put on your thinking cap and don’t forget to use your imagination, because there are literally millions of things you can sell in these marketplaces.
Here’s the key to doing this long term: Create a list of all of your buyers. Bribe them to get on your email list, and then when you have new stuff to sell, you tell them first.
I’ve seen sellers sell out of their items as fast as they list them by building and staying in touch with their list.
Your Enemy’s Enemy is Your Customer
I’m on Vanity Fair’s email list. They send out updates with all their latest posts on politics and the world in general.
Today as I was scrolling through the email, I noticed something interesting at the bottom.

This is brilliant.
As you may have observed, Donald Trump is a polarizing person. He has people who love him no matter what he says or does. And then there’s the rest of the world.
They are using Trump’s own words (presumably from a tweet or two) to clearly show which side of the line they stand on.
I’ll bet this is working like gangbusters.
What is polarizing about your niche? If it’s not a famous figure, perhaps it’s a certain philosophy or method. Look for issues where people have strong opinions and find a way to use the opposite side to your own benefit.
