Generate Revenue

These days there are many entrepreneurs who want to make money online, they often spend a lot on website development, do some promotion, and then can’t figure out why millions aren't pouring in the door. Any developer can build a good site over a weekend, that’s the easy part. It’s getting people to visit your site and keep coming back is the hard part.

In addition to direct sales there are many different formats to generate revenue for your online business. This consists of private advertising, pay per click and affiliate programs. If approached properly, vast success can be achieved from these formats.

Private Advertising is advertising such as banners on web pages. This is usually only profitable when large traffic is present. Electric Media is an advertising sales representation company which exclusively represents several of Ireland's best known and successful Irish websites. These include Entertainment.ie, Donedeal.ie and Myhome.ie.

Pay Per Click (PPC) are the adverts that are visible on a website usually located in between content. The market leaders for this type of advertising are Google Adsense and Yahoos Publisher Network. Adsense automatically crawls the content of your pages and delivers ads (you can choose both text or image ads) that are relevant to your audience and your site content, ads so well matched, in fact, that your readers will actually find them useful. When they’re clicked a small amount is paid into your account. If the given adverts pop up as your competitors then you can edit your Adsense account to block these websites.
