Using SEO to make money from your couch
Learn about SEO and use the knowledge
for making money online
SEO, short for Search Engine Optimisation, has been effectively utilised as a tool of digital marketing for
years now. There are quite a few SEO companies out there, but you have to look and test carefully before you make
your choice and sign up for their services in the long run.
Quite a few people these days head to Google and look for ways to learn and harness SEO for a variety of
purposes. Home based businesses set up their company website
to sell their products and services to a locally targetted clientelle, or internationally. Or, your home business
idea might be to set up a website and start marketing affiliate products. Either way, with the right approach,
money can be made online.

Today, we’re here to tell you how you can utilise SEO to earn money while you’re sitting at home (preferably a
couch, because it’s comfortable and this is going to take some time to become good at). So, hop in.
Learn about SEO
It’s important that you first learn what Search Engine Optimisation is, how it works, and how you can tap into
its immense potential. We recommend taking one of the many Udemy courses that cost nothing. Take this one, for example. It’s a great course to get to
know the very basics of SEO.
Remember that this step is mandatory for you to first get some basics (if you don’t have them already) so that
you know the stuff you’re planning to monetize hereon. More importantly, learn how Google Keyword Planner is used to get a hang of which keywords top the charts. These will
be utilised by you in SEO.
When you need help with implementing Search Engine Optimisation and to grow your website's traffic, go to
successful SEO service providers such as seoanalytics.pro. It takes time to learn about SEO, so it's good in the meantime to rely on
those who know what they're doing.
Use SEO knowledge to make money
Now, using your newfound knowledge it's time to try and make money. Remember, the more precisely targetted your
marketing and products are, the better chance that you will succeed in generating sales. Here are some of the ways
to make money online:
You can team up with websites (and people behind them) as affiliates, to build traffic from pages with good page authority ranking and which are
leveraging greatly used keywords. This traffic can be redirected to the site of an affiliate or partner of
yours, which is planning to go with this scheme. For a beginner, it's best to work with the well established
affiliate networks that provide support and have a variety of affiliate products and merchants on offer.
Marketing campaigns for partners
You can run campaigns for partners, so as to drive traffic to their site and/or promote a product/service that
they are selling. It’s a bit different from the previous one because here there’s an option to not redirect to
someone else’s website unless it’s to initiate a sale or a call-to-action at their end. This could be a form of a
joint venture, where one partner has products or services on offer, while the other brings in the traffic.
Lead generation or Data
This is one of the activities that most people (general masses) dislike, as they have to giveaway their
information, which is collected by you and then sold to people who are looking for such databases/lists of contacts. It’s lucrative as a passive source, since you can simply keep
collecting information, and sell it in a go every once in a few months when you’ve generated ample of data. It's
best though to work with a certain targetted market and reputable companies, to avoid becoming yet another junk
Well, there’s one thing in selling someone else’s brand, and it’s entirely different when you are promoting
yourself, or your brand and its products or services. Create a website, such as a Word Press site, get the basic plugins and you start blogging about your products and
services. Using the right keywords, you can attract qualified traffic and work on converting it into online
sales. Promote yourself and your WP site via LinkedIn, FB, Twitter and other social networks. These are great
for selling yourself. If you create, for example, a tutorial on “How to use SEO to make money”, which you can
promote via your blog and social profiles.
With that, we wind up on our directives for how you can turn the SEO based magic to your advantage, and make
money out of it. Most of these techniques do take time and patience, so we recommend that you read the material
we’ve quoted, and gain better knowledge before jumping in.
Remember: All good things take time. All the best!
