Using SEO to make money from your couch

Learn about SEO and use the knowledge for making money online

SEO, short for Search Engine Optimisation, has been effectively utilised as a tool of digital marketing for years now. There are quite a few SEO companies out there, but you have to look and test carefully before you make your choice and sign up for their services in the long run.

Quite a few people these days head to Google and look for ways to learn and harness SEO for a variety of purposes. Home based businesses set up their company website to sell their products and services to a locally targetted clientelle, or internationally. Or, your home business idea might be to set up a website and start marketing affiliate products. Either way, with the right approach, money can be made online.

Today, we’re here to tell you how you can utilise SEO to earn money while you’re sitting at home (preferably a couch, because it’s comfortable and this is going to take some time to become good at). So, hop in.

Learn about SEO

It’s important that you first learn what Search Engine Optimisation is, how it works, and how you can tap into its immense potential. We recommend taking one of the many Udemy courses that cost nothing. Take this one, for example. It’s a great course to get to know the very basics of SEO.

Remember that this step is mandatory for you to first get some basics (if you don’t have them already) so that you know the stuff you’re planning to monetize hereon. More importantly, learn how Google Keyword Planner is used to get a hang of which keywords top the charts. These will be utilised by you in SEO.

When you need help with implementing Search Engine Optimisation and to grow your website's traffic, go to successful SEO service providers such as seoanalytics.pro. It takes time to learn about SEO, so it's good in the meantime to rely on those who know what they're doing.

Use SEO knowledge to make money

Now, using your newfound knowledge it's time to try and make money. Remember, the more precisely targetted your marketing and products are, the better chance that you will succeed in generating sales. Here are some of the ways to make money online:

Affiliate websites

You can team up with websites (and people behind them) as affiliates, to build traffic from pages with good page authority ranking and which are leveraging greatly used keywords. This traffic can be redirected to the site of an affiliate or partner of yours, which is planning to go with this scheme. For a beginner, it's best to work with the well established affiliate networks that provide support and have a variety of affiliate products and merchants on offer.

Marketing campaigns for partners

You can run campaigns for partners, so as to drive traffic to their site and/or promote a product/service that they are selling. It’s a bit different from the previous one because here there’s an option to not redirect to someone else’s website unless it’s to initiate a sale or a call-to-action at their end. This could be a form of a joint venture, where one partner has products or services on offer, while the other brings in the traffic.

Lead generation or Data collection

This is one of the activities that most people (general masses) dislike, as they have to giveaway their information, which is collected by you and then sold to people who are looking for such databases/lists of contacts. It’s lucrative as a passive source, since you can simply keep collecting information, and sell it in a go every once in a few months when you’ve generated ample of data. It's best though to work with a certain targetted market and reputable companies, to avoid becoming yet another junk email "marketer".

Selling yourself

Well, there’s one thing in selling someone else’s brand, and it’s entirely different when you are promoting yourself, or your brand and its products or services. Create a website, such as a Word Press site, get the basic plugins and you start blogging about your products and services. Using the right keywords, you can attract qualified traffic and work on converting it into online sales. Promote yourself and your WP site via LinkedIn, FB, Twitter and other social networks. These are great for selling yourself. If you create, for example, a tutorial on “How to use SEO to make money”, which you can promote via your blog and social profiles.

With that, we wind up on our directives for how you can turn the SEO based magic to your advantage, and make money out of it. Most of these techniques do take time and patience, so we recommend that you read the material we’ve quoted, and gain better knowledge before jumping in.

Remember: All good things take time. All the best!
