This is the time most of the bloggers and web masters will experience good hike in online earnings. I highly recommend to use this chance to enhance your online earnings. Q4 of a year ( Oct, Nov & Dec) is mostly a busy time for online advertisers and companies to spend money on advertisement than previous months. The possible reason for it, to finish off all budgeted money on advertisements.
That’s right. Your earnings will go higher if you are making money mainly by CPC or CPM networks. This is due to high spending by advertisers and business organizations as year end is reaching. Since everyone wants to spend more on their products, the competition will be very high so the CPC and CPM rates will be extremely good for bloggers and webmasters.
Q4 of 2012 was not so great for me, because of reduced traffic. My tech blog’s traffic affected very badly during Q4 of 2012, so I could not utilize to increase the earnings. But Q4 of 2011 was very good for me, and I already started experiencing good Q4 of 2013.
The purpose of this post is to notify you the potentiality of making more money during this time.
How to Make More Money in Q4 of a Year
As I said earlier, CPC and CPM rates will be high during this time. So, by putting little bit more effort on your blog will give some fruitful results in income.
1) Get more traffic
Obviously, this is the first method you should try. Work harder than last 9 months on your blog to get more traffic. Publishing in-depth, well analyzed and long articles to drive more extra traffic.
2) Move your ads above fold
If you are the person hiding ads below the fold on your blog because you do not want to disturb your readers, this is the time to bring them up. Because of higher CPC, moving Google Adsense or other CPM ads above the fold will improve the earnings very well. Give importance to ads during this time, if you like to earn more money.
3) Target High Paying Keywords
If you have never considered this point while writing articles, start considering now!. Writing about (or inserting) high paying keywords will directly impact to get higher CPC.
4) Be active on Social Networking sites
Social media traffic is another great way to increase the earnings. Be active on social media sites to get more traffic.
5) Do not Over do anything
Very important, do not over do any of the above 4 steps. If you do something very quickly in inappropriate way, that will alarm your readers, Google and Adsense. So, better do them in proper way without any notice.
Let me know how Q4 is doing for you.
Good luck guys.
