I’ve decided there hasn’t been enough talk on WorkBoxers about money making methods because lets face it, we all want to make money. I’m going to briefly talk about a method I used recently to find advertising, link exchanges and to form networking relationships with other webmasters.
As an example, let’s say I have a website which has a huge archive of funny jokes. My main focused keyword is “funny jokes” to which I am already ranked well in Google.
What I can do is grab keywords of similar context, throw them into justmyfitness Google and generate a list of relevant websites. In this example I threw in the keyword “funny videos”. People who are browsing funny videos would also like funny jokes right? Right! The next step is to contact the webmasters of those sites and offer them advertising space on your website!
Now when you are sending out emails, try and make sure the email sounds legit. Otherwise they will see the email and instantly assume its spam (or spam filters may tag it as spam). Try to be casual but also professional in your words, tell them that you think visitors of your site would also be interested in their “funny videos” website.
If they aren’t interested in the advertising part, hint a link exchange instead. In doing so, both sites will benefit.
Using this simple method you can achieve the following;
* Sell advertising space on your website
* Form networking relationships with other webmasters
* Form Link exchanges.
Because the sites we targeted have similar content to our own, Google will gobble up the Link exchange with glee!

Not currently available from the author’s website, but can be found by Googling for a file named ‘eremov24.zip’. This is an email account checker. It can be run from a floppy disk and can check multiple email accounts. Allows you to highlight spam and delete it, and download emails if need be. WARNING: It has a bug. Do not change the order of the emails in the software window before deleting; you’ll end up deleting the wrong ones.
RFTP 32 Version 0.99
Again, not currently available from the author’s website. This is a self-contained FTP client that can be, you guessed it, run from a floppy disk. Search around for a file named ‘rftp.exe’.
If you don’t see a pattern emerging, then let me elucidate: the last three programs can all be run from the same floppy disk. You can leave your laptop at home, and work on your your site from internet cafes.
