Should You Offer Revenue Sharing? - Content for Sale
(Page 4 of 4 )
Revenue sharing can be applied to your site in many different ways, so why limit yourself to text content alone? You'll find that revenue sharing can apply to video and picture content as well. It's a basic rule of the Internet: anywhere that traffic goes, advertisers want to be.
This works out well for you if you'd like to take advantage of revenue sharing options. You can always sell your content to advertisers, who will in turn give a cut of those profits to you; it's all part of the business of the Internet. Just be conscious of the fact that you should always have more content than you do ads for that content; there is no need to swamp your visitors with marketing ploys.
You can use these programs to enjoy the profits alone, or share them among content contributors to increase the amount of content on your site. At the heart of it all, keep focusing on what's really important: the content itself. The better your content, the more traffic you will get. Profits will increase accordingly.
Should You Offer Revenue Sharing?
Revenue sharing can benefit your site, but it will change the look of your site as well. Including these programs on your pages means you'll be including a lot of links and ads which you do not place. You have no control over any of these ads; not the look, the words or even the placement itself in some cases. You will give up some of your creative control to enjoy extra profits and perhaps more consistent content and added traffic. Should you offer revenue sharing on your site?
Weigh all the options before you decide, and take the time to look at the different revenue sharing programs which are available to you. If you include revenue sharing on your site, you want to be sure it's a good fit.
