Many people who purchase turnkey websites online believe that all they need to do is buy the website, insert their affiliate links, sit back and start raking in the money. However, this is simply not true. Building a business and an income online works just the same way as it would in the offline world. You need to dedicate some of your time and energy into getting it off the ground. Here are 5 things you should do after every website purchase to help you get started in the right direction:
1. Check Your Affiliate ID’s.
The very first thing you should do after you have purchased your website and it is live, is to submit your affiliate ID’s to us. You will need to sign up to each of the income producing programs that are included on the website and submit your ID’s or codes to us on the form provided. When you have received confirmation from us that your affiliate ID’s have been inserted onto the website you should log in and double check that each of them are correct. You can do this by logging into your website’s dashboard with the details provided, and click on “SG1 Options” underneath “Appearance” on the left hand side. This is where all of your affiliate ID’s are stored. This step is important, because if they are incorrect you won’t get paid from the affiliate programs.
2. Rewrite Content and Add Your Own.
The next step you should take is to make your website unique and put your own stamp onto it. You can do this by rewriting the articles that are on the website, and also adding your own unique content. Not only will this make you stand out from the crowd to your website readers, but the search engines will notice you more too. You can rewrite your existing articles easily by using the WordFlood rewriting software that is included in your list of bonuses. When you have re-written the existing content you can then begin writing your own articles for the website and post them once or twice a week. If writing doesn’t appeal to you then you can hire someone to write your articles for you for a small cost from places like Iwriter.com.
3. Install Google Analytics.
The third step you should take is to install Google Analytics onto your website. Google Analytics is a free service provided by Google that lets you track your website visitors by placing a script on your website. This step is important because if you want your website to be successful you will need to learn about your website visitors. Analytics will show you which links they clicked on to get to your website, what search terms they typed into the search engines, how long they stay on your website and a whole lot more.
4. Drive Traffic to Your Website
Driving traffic to your website will be the most important step you need to take. Without website traffic no one will be reading your articles and clicking on your affiliate links, and most importantly you will not be making any money. Driving targeted traffic to your website can be time consuming and will perhaps be the most difficult step you need to take. However, if done right you will reap the rewards in the long run. There are many ways you can get drive traffic to your website including article marketing, SEO, and social media marketing. Here are a few links back to some older blog posts that go into these marketing techniques in more details:
5. Keep Going – Be Persistent!
Lastly you should keep going and be persistent. You should understand that making money online and running a successful website takes time and perseverance. You won’t make your fortune overnight – it will happen gradually. Keep writing new articles and updating your website. Keep driving traffic to it using the methods mentioned in step four, and over time the traffic to your website and your earnings will creep up gradually. Always remember slow and steady wins the race.
