Hotels, Flights, Cruise Vacations and other online travel booking items have always been popular internet searches, either for personal or business purposes. I re-designed a website I originally built over 10 years ago to sell travel services through my affiliate relationships with Travelocity, Hotels.com, Trivago, Priceline, and other vendors.
My new website is mobile-responsive and a great example of how anyone can monetize a personal blog or website, or add an income stream to an existing commercial site by placing text ads or banner ads to items that are related to the main theme of your site. Visit www.TravelUSAandWorld.com/ to see how I optimized it with my own keywords so that I had a chance of ranking in Google search results. Make hotel or flight reservations while you’re there, and you’ll be helping to support several gratis websites I’ve built for local Wilmington, Delaware area non-profits!
Contact me anytime if you’d like to brainstorm how to incorporate affiliate advertising or other income streams into your own business model. Of course, it’s more appropriate to add these types of links to personal sites, hobby sites, or home business sites where you’re not as concerned with distracting your visitors from the main goal of buying your products or services. For example, the first website I ever built was my www.WorldofBeerBottles.com. That’s where I first gained experience with adding affiliate advertising banners for beer posters, “Beer of the Month Clubs” and beer themed books & posters. Pitching related products or services is a benefit to your visitors and could even motivate them to buy from you if the see that you’re affiliated with a well-known brand!
