Making Money with Google AdWords- Step by Step Guide
How would you make money with Google adwords, knowing that Adwords is one of the biggest online advertising programs?… First you need to know how ad words works. Google adwords is a pay per click kind of advertising program. Pay per click works in a simple straight forward way. Google displays your ad across different websites and networks. Every time someone clicks on any of your ads, you will have to pay Google for that click. The amount you pay for each click is based on your bid that you have placed prior to having your ad displayed by Google. I know it sounds more like spending money, not earning. Hang on, there is a catch!
For making money on the internet with Google adwords, you will need to combine it with affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing basically is a form of marketing where in order to make more sales and money, a product owner offers a commission to others who will help to sale his or her product. As an affiliate marketer you get a commission every time someone who you direct to the merchants site, buys a product or pays for a service.
Basically you will need to find an affiliate program and use Google adwords to send potential buyers to them. This method costs you money. But, if you get it right, you can make a lot of money with it.
Pick an affiliate product
First, you need to find and register with an affiliate program, if you already aren’t registered with any. Find a product you are interested in promoting it. You will be given a unique link, which will be your affiliate link for promoting that product. This links is what will make you money. In order for you to get your commission, people have to be directed to the merchants websites through this link.
Get an account with adwords
If you don’t have an account with adwords, then obviously the next step is to sign up with Google adwords. After registering, you will need to put some money into your account. I wouldn’t start with more than $100 or so.
Create a blog
This is a crucial step in your journey to make money with Google adwords. If you don’t want to spend money buying a domain name and paying for hosting package, you can simply use free blogging platforms like blogger to create a simple blog, which will act as your landing page. This blog will serve as a place where you can place your affiliate links to get other people to click on it and hopefully buy the product. Of course, you cant just place one link in your blog and expect people to visit your blog and click on the link. To attract potential buyers, you will need to create useful content. Usually review style contents works best when it comes to promoting affiliate products.
Simply start reviewing the affiliate product you have chosen to promote. Write posts about this product in a review style. You can either use this blog to review as many affiliate products you like, or you can just dedicated to one product and have different information about it as posts on different pages of your blog.
Create your ad
Go back to your Google adwords account and create an ad using keywords related to the product you are promoting. When you place bids for your ads, don’t set it to high. Specially if you are new to this. Take it slowly until you know what you are doing. Link this ad to your blog which you have just created, and watch your affiliate earnings grow.
Although there are many free ways to make money online promoting affiliate products, using Google adwords is a much faster way to get results. Of course, it can be costly if you are not careful. Be sure to do some research and learn as much as you can, before you start implementing this method to make money with Google adwords.
