Establishing your own E-commerce site just ain't like what it used to be. The competition is little short of ridiculous, everyone competing for a bigger share of the same pie. The good news is it is a very big pie. In this environment every scheme and method you can find to augment your sales traffic should be found.

Without traffic we have no business. Like any business, without any customers you don't get sales. Traffic represents all the people that have a chance to see what you have to offer. The more people who see your products the bigger chance there is of someone actually buying something.

Nobody puts up an E-commerce site without the expectation that it will make a profit. If we have content that is of intrest to our target audience, and we have driven traffic to our site through advertising and other means. So far we have only spent, money and effeort in order to build our page or site. In order to recoupe our losses and hopefully make a profit we need to monetizing our traffic.


Making Money out of your Traffic

The best and most proven method of making a profit out of your traffic is advertising. Other businesses which sell goods and services which compliment your own can be displayed on your site

Many are just looking for information and this is what you shoud provide. If people are looking for information within your market, they need to be coming to you for that information. A good percentage of these people are looking for information in order to make a purchase. If you are their source for this information and are offering the right product at the right price you will have gone a long way towards getting their business.

The internet has proven itself an invaluable resource for finding previously rare or hard to find items. The internet has made the world a smaller place - you can advertise a product from the depths of Istanbul and still find a buyer in Philadelphia. In a virtual sense that person can walk right into your storefront. What we are asking ourselves as web-developers is what will make traffic do this and then what will make traffic into customers or sales.

Generating traffic is not an easy task. You have to compete with every site in your market in order to generate good traffic flow. But if done successfully it will open up flood of possibilities. In order to benefit from increased traffic it is now necessary to monetize your traffic flow.

A good traffic flow can easily be converted into profits - basically traffic equals profit. Advertising is the name of the game; with a good advertising scheme you can use your traffic flow to your advantage.


Adverts you place on your site pay you for every click or every sale they produce. The more traffic your site has the more money you will make from this source. This is in addition to your core business.

Affiliate Programs

Another method of monetizing your traffic are affiliate programs. You can link up with other tried and tested sites and online companies and monetize your traffic by having a percentage of sales generated by traffic coming from your site.

The basic idea is, traffic generated from your site will go to another site that can offer a product that you do not carry. Affiliate sites give you a tracking code or affiliate ID. This allows them to keep track and make records of transactions made through your sites traffic.

Some affiliate programs make a one time payment for sales or sometimes merely for leads(people who leave their details but do not buy right away); others have a tier system where customers that originate through your site recruit others who join the program and you get a percentage fom all of this traffic too. This is residual income and you should always value residual income. Residual income is income that keeps on coming long after the oriinal action that generated in the first place has ceased.

There are affilaite programs that put a cookie on your site, you have to make sure the appropriate cookie is allowed by your computer. Most affiliates will guide you through this process. The cookie stays on your machine, sometimes for years and then if a customer who originally visited the affiliate site, through your link, goes back, and makes a purchase at any time during the life of that cookie, the affiliate will know and credit you for the sale, you will get the commission.

This is an excellent deal. After all, ask yourself, how often you went online, loooking for something and bought the first one you found. Not very often, am I right? When purchases are made by customers that were sent by your site to their site you get a percentage of that sale.Affiliate programs give you the benefit of monetizing your traffic without the actual need of carrying or promoting a certain product.

There are so many ways and methods to monetize your traffic. You will see any of them advertized on this site around the content. o click o some of my ads and you will be able to find out what you need to know. All it takes is a bit of hard work and the desire to successfully launch a profit-earning site. The internet is a veritable goldmine of information, many tips and guides are offered ine a varietyt of formats. I hope this will help you to monetize your traffic and make your site a good profit earner.
