A Wasted Money Making Opportunity

Few hours ago I met a nice guy who owns a great Blog with ~55,000 unique users per month and ~$70 income from Google AdSense.
The traffic to his Blog is purely organic while 70% of it is from Google search results.

Would you believe it?

This guy seems to know a lot about SEO but when it comes to internet marketing he has a lot to catch up.

At the bottom line I offered him my help. I will help him to make more money with his Blog.
A discloser: I am note doing it for free. We agreed to share the profits. A win win situation.

The first thing that I’ve offered him is to drop Google AdSense completely.
Why? Because of many reasons:

He owns a niche Blog. The traffic that he gets comes from variety of keywords. Some of the keywords describe different problems that the visitor seeks for it a solution.
In some of the cases the visitor gets what he looked for free of charge. The answer is within the post, which is great. Even so, still there is a place to offer products related to the visitor search term.

By taking a brief look on his Analytics report I could see the financial potential of his Blog. He did a good job with the content but now its time to convert it to money.

I don’t reveal his name or his Blog URL because he asked me not to do so.
In the following days I will do a deep research on his analytics report in order to find the most suitable products for his Blog.

I offered him to use WordPress Affiliate Elite. He has lots of posts that he published on his Blog during the years. He agreed to try it knowing that with WordPress Affiliate Elite it will be easy to embed the affiliate links among the huge amount of his posts.

We will try different products until we will find the products that convert the best.
I am sure that within few weeks he will make much more than $70 a month.

I have a feeling that he is not the only one with this situation – having a Blog with a nice amount of traffic but with very low income. Google AdSense is a great way to earn money with Blogs, but if you own a niche Blog, more likely that with the right products you can earn much better.

I will keep you update with my progress with this guy Blog.
I am sure that the results will not be late to come.
