BANNERS + POPUPS + LINKS
The business pages are born out of the need to serve your websites. Nevertheless, with the sites like mine they never have high priority. Here is what I had lean and you need to learn. And the links I want to make work.
Web, Internet and simply Business.
You made your webpage and soon you are about to discover that you're in BUSINESS. Especially, if you get good traffic. 100 or so hits/day. You might completely ignore the money game, or you can play it....
Do you see the banners? They came with the free webspace (that's how Tripod makes money). I and you had to tolerate it. Now, if the site has at least 100 daily impressions, Tripod pays you (50 cents for 1000). You have 1000/day -- a dollar. Interesting.
Of course, it's not "real" money (you understand what would it take for me to have 10.000/day!), but the goal I set -- make the webpages pay for themselves! not even for my time, simply for all those little things I have to buy for computing and webbing. But what if I want to be paid?
Oh, this is another story, my friend! And I mean it.
Do you really want to make it a BUSINESS?
So, what is your product?
Do you understand it?
Year or so ago, I began to place the affiliate (paid) links on my pages; mostly the companies I myself wouldn't mind to check out and buy from. Amazon, for example (see Books directories and pages). Well, once in a while you can make a few bucks. Don't hold your breath. You still selling somebody's products. You PRODUCE "leads" for them, that's all. But how did you get them?
Because of your subject/expertise -- people come to your pages for content (even when it is in form of service). The industry calls them "end-product users"... How do you use them, your users?
Wait a minute! I said to myself. I learned HTML to do the webmaster's jobs, now what -- do I have to learn marketing? Promotion? Write my business plan?
All right, since Tripod gave me 50MG of free space (a jump from original 10MG), I can make a few pages about Losers in cyber-business (like me) -- you can read about the winners in popular press. Do you see right-hand table of contents? Go there!
Each new stage in web development asks for more pages. I make this page to remember all the affiliate programs I have on my sites.
[ I do not add any "business" links now, because too many went out of busness, leaving my pages with the dead links. ]
