How to Monetize My Website to Create Passive Income?
  • Can You help me to monetize my aunt website www.getconsultingbusiness.com?

    My goal is to build a how to site for senior consultants who want to start an online consulting business.

    Can you share your experiences on how to :
    • improve traffic to the site?
    • get qualified leads?
    • apply the affiliate model for monetizing the website?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Best regards,

    Josef


  • Hi Josef,

    My impression is what you're looking to do is take a market that hasn't yet embraced the web as an avenue to grow their consulting business and sell them on doing it. Based on this, it seems to me that your best results would likely come from phone based selling. Here are a couple ideas for you...

    1.) Go to your local library and ask if you can get free access to http://www.referenceusa.com/. From there, you can print out lists of consultants that you can cold call. Once you've validated you can sell them offline, then use the same lessons to convert them online.

    2.) Google Adwords has some age and interest based targeting. You might have luck paying for traffic in your market and driving them to a page that incentivizes them to call you or fill out a form to be called.
