Not boasting but just a truth…. I am one of the busiest landing page seller on Fiverr (LOL!)
In last 27 days I’ve sold about 50 landing pages. And as of now, I’ve been getting 2-5 landing page orders daily.
I know… for majority of the newbie sellers, getting started on Fiverr is a pain. Because newbie seller has to compete with other big guys who already had big reputation there. So if you are one among those newbies, this article is for you.
1.Be prepared before listing
I always believe in reinvesting money in business, whether it is online or offline.
Though, I am not making huge money by blogging, I always make sure to reinvest the money to my blog.
So far, I’ve tried different advertising options like AdWords and BuySellAds to promote the services (Blogger to WordPress Migration) I’ve been providing on this blog. Because there is a big learning curve for AdWords, I stopped using it and focused more on banner ad promotion by BuySellAds.
Why BuySellAds not AdWords?
It is true that using AdWords you can buy highly targeted traffic. But here are 2 reasons why I don’t currently use AdWords for promotion.
1. Big learning curve
Unless you try it you could not find it. I’ve done advertisement for about $100 so far on AdWords but drastically fail to bring targeted visitors to my blog. Believe it or not, the learning curve is huge.
Instead BuySellAds is much easier to set up. You can bring highly targeted traffic with no hassle. It all depends on which website or blog you choose to advertise.
2. High cost
For each click on AdWords I’ve paid approximately $0.30 – $1 which is more than what I could afford. Instead for BSA, I gotta pay just about $0.1- $0.2 for a click.
Here are 7 simple steps I used to promote my blog using BuySellAds.
The prices for internet sites tends to be dropping a little bit compared to the previous year.
Also I guess the resourcing of these sites kind of varies a lot, so we see different quality blogs in some of those niches come through which tend to drop the price down was well

A couple of months ago I read an article of Daniel Scocco pointing that currently most of the websites are undervalued. He continued that as of current trends website and blog can be bought for just about 24 times the monthly income. But if you invest on offline business you gotta pay about 60 times the monthly income. So obviously this is the right time for buying a blog.
He then predicted that because online and offline investment has to be balanced, in coming years website selling price will increase.
Right now is especially good time to buy websites because, as you saw from the numbers above, the valuations of online assets are still undervalued when compared to offline ones. This won’t last forever, though.
Over time purchasing and owning a website that makes money will become a lot more common, and by then valuations will start increasing…
…so sooner or later online and offline investments will need to be in balance.

But the current trends shows that things are happening opposite to what Daniel has predicted. Sometimes it may take more times for balancing both the online and offline investments. However, here are some of the interesting facts Andrew revealed at Affiliate Summit West, Las Vegas.

To be honest, I don’t know why people use Aweber.
I think most of the people are blindly following the “Gurus” without analyzing various products available in the market.
