Remember the popular method of getting a passive income by creating a small niche site with a few pages and loads of ads? Well, it’s probably about to change with Google Personalized Search since sites with a high returning frequency will rank better than simple sites used only once or twice.
If you lure your visitors into clicking on ads they will probably never visit you again and lets face the truth, there are only so many people searching for a specific keyword. Some day you will run out of them and by then you will wish you were converting them into regular visitors instead.
The Benefit of Converting Your Visitors
Every person creating content online tries to attract visitors. Unfortunately most of them don’t see the value of converting their first time visitors by using, for an example, a mailing list.
If you receive 1000 visitors on Monday and manages to convert 2% of them you will only need to attract 980 on Tuesday. After only one month you will have about 500 subscribers and therefore only need to attract 500 new visitors every day. What if you continue to attract 1000 new visitors every day then? Well, after 30 days you will have 1600 visitors with no additional work. After one year you will have 8300 visitors every day…
Lesson: Take care of your visitors and begin building your list today!
