How Domainers and Bloggers could Collaborate – Fresh Content for Domainers, Earn Money for bloggers
Domainers and Bloggers donâ€™t seem to have a common ground where they could collaborate on, bloggers look at domainers as cyber squatters while domainers complain the fact that people look at them that way. But thereâ€™s a common thing that links both together, Domainers need contents and bloggers produce contents…
… As a domainer, the most common problem that we have is how do we update the contents of our website / minisite? While (some) bloggers are thinking, how can I make more money that what Iâ€™m making from my blog? So I think this is the best meeting point for both sides.
– WordPress is our common ground as well –
As minisites are fast becoming a trend for domainers and wordpress as a tool for this, why not expand this further and collaborate with bloggers for contents. If youâ€™re familiar with wordpress, you can actually add other users in with limited access, these are the contributors. Contributors can then add contents on your behalf and you could approve it as you wish. Now of course, contributors arenâ€™t going to do it for nothing, they have to be compensated. Hereâ€™s where a plugin called Author Advertising comes in.
Author Advertising allows you to setup shares with different Authors on Google Adsense (or other ad products) based on how much percentage youâ€™d like to share with them. Setting up seems quite complicated at first but it does become more simple as you read their instruction manual.
Whatâ€™s great about this concept is that it is a win-win situation for both sides, domainer‘s domain increases in value as time goes by while bloggers make money and benefit from a great domain and SEO. The only downside is that you definitely need to tie down your domain to this concept for at least a year for the bloggers to get back what theyâ€™ve put into the contents.
