If your Adsense account is banned, what would you do? It is not uncommon for Google to ban user’s accounts such as Adwords, YouTube, Adsense, etc… when your accounts are “deemed to violate their terms and conditions”. You are free to submit a reconsideration, but usually you will hear nothing from them. If you asked specifically what went wrong and hope you can rectify them before you submit for a reconsideration, all their support helpdesk will do is to direct you to their terms and conditions and let you figure out yourself (I’m thinking if they are using autoresponder or real person for the helpdesk, lol). Does this sound familiar?
It is the actually fifth time that I was told that the Google Adsense Accounts of my friends / readers got banned in this year. I also noticed the buzz on some forums and a couple of bloggers like Zac Johnson, Ghauer Chaudhry and Spencer went through this horrible nightmare.
I am not writing this post to complain about Google. They have absolutely any right to do anything about their web properties, including accounts such as AdWords, Adsense, YouTube, Gmail, G+, etc…We can’t say much about it. It is their business ultimately and they do not have any obligation to serve us in the way we like.
Focus On Long Term Business Model
Adsense was one of my targeted stream of income a year ago and I was thinking to actually expand this income stream by doing some heavy outsourcing work. Despite the constant changing Google ranking algorithm, the hardest part is actually to keep your account intact and safe. Thought I am still having my Adsense Account and a few niche sites that generated a couple hundred dollars each month, I seriously give up my original intent to expand this income stream. In fact, I will shift my main focus on list building. Ultimately, your list is the most powerful asset you have in my honest opinion.
Also, list building is the best way for long term profitable affiliate marketing. You can build many sniper sites and micro niche sites and harness the organic traffic to your sites. Based on the extent of your preselling skill, you might get 1-5% of the conversion. What about the 95% of your traffic? If you didn’t collect the leads, it is simply a waste of the traffic you get. Though you will not capture the 95% of the traffic, even if you can capture just 10% of them, that’s extra money for you because now you can market the same affiliate products from your email follow up message. All it takes is to simply add an opt in box on your blog (i.e. side bar) or put a exit redirect to a squeeze page.
It does not take long to add an opt in box (you can use this list building plugin to speed the process) and a squeeze page. Also, once you setup your follow up messages and squeeze page, it is pretty much an automated system. You just take some time (maybe once or twice per week) to broadcast any email you would like your visitors to read, take action, etc…Having a list on hand is your leverage and definitely great for long term business model.
List Building Model
List building, marketing funnel and email marketing are the topics that should go together because they are pretty much related to each other. If you know what you are doing, you can really generate a killing income with just s single page squeeze page and a thank you page. The concept is very simple. You find a great converting offer and you create a squeeze page to match with the offer. Subsequently, you focus all your effort in driving traffic to your only opt in page. If your prospects are interested to get your freebie on your squeeze page, they will leave their email in exchange of the gift you prepared for them.
Once they are in your list, you can tap on the opportunity to build relationship with them and schedule affiliate promotion in your email. This is truly the push button profit referred by some marketers. When they push the send button to blast out an email to their list, they can generate from hundreds to a few thousands dollars, depending on their list size and the responsiveness of their list.
