Content sites are springing up left and right. People want to share their expertise and the information they find. However, many Internet Marketers overlook Content Sites as an opportunity to partner with another online businessperson, although it can actually be quite a good fit.
How would this be a mutually beneficial project? Here are some scenarios:
If you’re not technical and don’t know how to build a website, but you enjoy writing, share the work.
If you aren’t a writer, but enjoy making websites… find a writer and you’ll have a perfect partnership.
Working with another person has many benefits. You’ll come up with ideas and topics that neither one of you may have thought of on your own. And just having someone else working on the site with you will keep you on your toes and motivated. It’s just like having a gym buddy. You work on the site because there’s someone out there that relies on you.
How do you both benefit financially?
Adsense Income – Set up an adsense channel to track the income from your website. That way, you’ll be able to see how effective your ad placements are – and easily split the profits at the end of the month.
Affiliate Income – This one gets a little trickier. If you’re promoting a clickbank product, you can set up a new account name to use. No problem. However, if you have many other affiliate programs on your website, you can split the profits in any number of ways. One thing I do on one of my shared sites is we each use our own affiliate links on the pages that we create.
Incoming Links to your other sites – Feel free to link from your shared content site to some of your other related sites. You’ll get free advertising and free incoming links, which the search engines love.
Newsletter – You can also built a newsletter list together that can drive traffic to your other sites, and sell affiliate products. By sharing the responsibility of coming up with new newsletter topics and articles, you benefit from the list with half the work.
Now, if you’ve read any of my other articles about this topic, you’ll see a common theme. Don’t sweat the small stuff in a partnership. It’s just not worth it. Nobody wants to partner with a Nitpicky Nancy. Get a reputation for being fun to worth with and a hard worker and you’ll have people knocking down your door to partner with you.
