I’m getting a little anxious–there is a lot to being a website publisher and only 24 hours to a day.  I go to bed thinking about the site, and wake up thinking about the site – it’s eerily becoming a compulsion.  Since the layoff, I initially thought that I could work a few different avenues to generate multiple streams of income.  I became a member of – a free lance site which puts those with jobs offers together with those skilled to do the jobs.  I have not had a chance to focus on that site due to the time it is taking to get the website up and running.  Below is a not at all comprehensive list of “to do’s” for the niche website:

Website design and layout

           Designing how you want the site to look
            Selecting WordPress Theme
            Learning Code to manage site layout
            Selecting plugins to customize site
            Going back to drawing board when plugging don’t work as anticipated
            Maintenance and updates

 Application for Affiliate Acceptance (to obtain ads to list on site)

      Comprehension of T&C of each company acceptance.
      Searching appropriate product links
       Loading appropriate product links to webpage
      Watching for rebates, coupons and posting them to webpage as appropriate
      Watching for expired ads
      Working with Commission Junction, Google Adsense and Affiliates, Amazon Associates, 

 Marketing – JustHost my host server provided a few coupons for advertising my site.  Using

      Google Adwords – method of getting your website ad to show up on a Google search
      Facebook Ads –   method of advertising website on FB (you know those pesky ads that show up on the right side of your FB       
                       Home Page…yea that)
       Getting “channels” right so each ad can be tracked as far as effectivity

 Acronyms – need I say a whole new language?  Here are just a few:

      PPC – price per click (measurement of someone actually clicking on an ad)
      PPM – price per impression (measurement of the ad showing up on someone’s browser
      Bounce rates -not an acronym, just an interesting concept (measure of how long a viewer stays on a page)

 Education on all four of the above—innumerable amounts of free information and webcasts to make yourself a successful publisher.

Love to hear from someone who has gone thru self-education.  So I’ve got to get back to it, right now. 🙂

  1. Yep me t’inks so Kendra :-). Thanks for letting me know there is a live body out there. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I’m learning that the best sites are ones which are referral or reference so you load the info once, and it’s pretty much self-maintaining.

  3. I’ve recently started a blog, the information you provide on this site has helped me tremendously. Thank you for all of your time & work.
