7 Ways To Make Money With Your Ezine
So, you've started an ezine, put your heart and soul into
your new project ... now what? It won't be long before you
begin asking yourself, "How the heck am I going to make any money with this?".
The fact is, ezines require a great deal of work. Unless
you enjoy *not* being paid for your efforts, you've got to
find some creative ways to generate some cash.
Here are seven proven ways that will help you to cover the
costs of webhosting, e-mail software, and other tools that
you'll need to publish your ezine.
1. Write Articles
You may have heard this a dozen times before, but writing
articles really does work. Visit a few of the top ezine
directories and search for ezines in your target market.
Then, compile your list of "target" ezines and send off a
personal, introduction e-mail offering your article for
more exposure = more subscribers = more sales
Just take a look at this real success story and learn how
you can accumulate a fortune using this single technique:
2. Ezine Ads
Selling ads in your ezine is a great way to generate some
easy cash. In fact, there are many ezine publishers who
make a healthy living by using this exact formula.
Just imagine if you produced a weekly ezine and sold 5 ads
at $40 per ad.
$200 in ad revenue per week x 52 weeks = $10,400 per year
Solo Ad Mailings
As your ezine grows, you'll develop a list of several
thousand opt-in subscribers. This list represents a
goldmine of opportunity.
Why not use your list to promote related products that
your subscribers would find valuable? Solo ads have been
proven to be up to 50 times more effective than multiple
ads contained within an ezine.

3. Sell Affiliate Products
If you're not already promoting various affiliate products
within your ezine, you're seriously missing out!
Join a few programs that make sense. For example, if your
ezine targets health enthusiasts, don't promote unrelated
products (i.e. search engine software).
The best part is, none of your ezine subscribers need to
know that your ezine ads contain your personal affiliate
Promote Affiliate Programs
In addition to promoting affiliate products, why not
promote the affiliate programs themselves? Bear with me
for a second on this ...
Seek out 2-tier affiliate programs. The beauty of 2-tier
is that if you refer other affiliates into the program,
you'll receive a percentage of their sales (tier-2
commissions) without doing a thing!
Include a couple of sentences in your ezine such as ...
"Here's something worth checking out ... I just signed up
as an EzineAnnouncer Affiliate and instantly generated a
few sales. You can sign up yourself by clicking here:

4. Write a Product Review
A great way to generate some revenue is to write a product
review. It's the ultimate "soft sell". At the end of the
review, include a "click here for more information"
hyperlink. Use your affiliate link and you'll generate
some quick sales.
5. Offer a Free Gift For Subscribing
It's always a good idea to lure in new subscribers by
using a desirable free gift as bait.
What should you giveaway?
There are several ebooks on the market (some are free)
that you can "brand" with your own affiliate links. These
could generate sales for you while you sleep!
Or, why not take a bunch of your articles and create your
own ebook? You could include your ezine subscribe links
throughout the ebook to drive new subscribers -- free
advertising for your ezine!

6. Develop An Information Product
An ezine is a great way to get free exposure for your
information product. Plus, if you already have a solid
relationship with your readers, they're more likely to do
business with you.
Many successful Internet marketers (including the author)
started their business by first building a successful
ezine and then launching information products that their
ezine subscribers would find of value.
7. Charge For Your Ezine
Why not charge a monthly or annual fee for your ezine? If
your ezine is extremely valuable and packed full of great
information, chances are people will pay for it.
For starters, you could offer a free *lite* version of
your ezine as a teaser. Then, use this as means to entice
your subscribers to upgrade to the *paid* version.
If you'd like to find out more about how you can generate
some serious cash with your *paid* ezine, learn from a
real pro who's done it:
So there you have it -- seven great ways to make your
ezine more profitable in record time. Give a few of these
techniques a try in the next few months. I'm sure you'll
be pleasantly surprised at just how easy it is to generate
some extra cash with your ezine.
