I used to think that I wanted to be an entrepreneur, but now I know that the infopreneur path is more my style. An infopreneur does not sell, promote, or solicit anything… and yet they can earn as much money as they desire. It does not cost a lot of money to start this type of income venture, and it does not take years of training or experience. And you can even build your business on a topic that you have true interest and passion for, so you can actually enjoy making money rather than doing something that you hate. An infopreneur is someone who simply provides information, and monetizes it so that it earns money through a number of monetization models. There are many ways to do this, but I have found the most success by hosting my own information rich niche websites, and then monetizing the pages on each site with the Google AdSense program. Anyone can set up a website, place Google ads on it, and earn passive income around the clock.
There are millions of AdSense publishers, but not all of them earn a substantial amount of money. Some people only earn a couple bucks a day, and others do not even earn that much. But that does not mean the potential is not there. Some of us earn great incomes from AdSense, and many earn tens of thousands of dollars per month in passive income with their websites. The key is being able to generate traffic, lots and lots of traffic. The more website traffic you have, the more people will be exposed to your ads, and the more money you will earn. There are many methods of generating traffic, and I recommend using a combination of them to maximize visitors and profits. I primarily use search engine marketing to generate fresh traffic on a daily basis. To do this you will need to learn a little about search engine optimization, and you will need to create your site so that the engines rank it highly.
On top of the search engines, I drive traffic to my sites through a few other methods. Article marketing can be a great way to promote your website to your target audience. Write articles ans submit them to the free article directories. This not only drives extra traffic to your website but also gives your website inbound links, which is one of the biggest factors of search engine optimization. You can also promote your website with social mediums like Twitter and Facebook, and by becoming a valuable member to niche related forums and pointing to your site for more information. Combining these methods lets you drive enough traffic to sustain your infopreneur website and earn you a substantial amount of money. Once your website is generating a substantial amount of traffic, you can further monetize it by promoting various affiliate products and services, selling ad space, and a wide range of additional income streams.
