While it’s important not to spread oneself thin and try to work on too many projects at once, it’s also important to develop multiple streams of income. One has to find a proper balance between the two. Generating multiple streams of income is not just a wealth-generation strategy, it is also a matter of increased financial security.
If you sell products through your blog or website, whether as an affiliate or whether these are your own products, it’s important that you understand the FTC’s new rules so that you can be in compliance with them – or as much in compliance as is humanly possible.
Chitika is a great way to add monetization to an existing blog, even if it is already monetized with another program. You can add Chitika ads to your site without worrying crowding too many adds around your content (keep reading to see why I say this).
We have all had something to say at one time or another about online scams; people who make money by selling things to others which they don’t need, which don’t do what they are said to do, and which can even waste people’s time or distract them from what they should be focused on – besides being a waste of money in the long run. And the fact is, that is far from the worst of it. Do you want to earn money by promoting unethical products? Probably not. But are you always fully aware of what you are promoting?
Even if you’re not able to survey every one of your website visitors to ask them what they think of your site and how they reacted to the different pages, there is still a substantial amount of feedback you can obtain indirectly, through Google Analytics.
If you haven’t started using Google Analytics on your website(s) or blogs, I highly highly recommend it. If you’ve set up an account but rarely look at it – I recommend you start looking.

StomperNet teaches SEO, (Search Engine Optimization), eCommerce, and a lot more on the subject of Internet Marketing, but I have primarily learned SEO (Search Engine Optimization) from them. They offer a lot of free information and guidance, as well as a monthly newsletter subscription, and, for those who are up to it, there is a very expensive membership. But the subject of this blog post is the information they offer for free and at low cost – I am not an “expensive-membership person” myself.
