After unleashing my quickly approving directory list, I concentrated more on directory business. Its good and growing like a fire. Here’s my little guide to get started with these directories.
Directory biz is easy to setup. Little requirement and you biz is on !! you need a good host to setup your directory as directories needs good up-time and bandwidth. choose your Web-host wisely. Directory can be General or niche based. Both type of directories works at best. TLD and subdomain affects at some extent, better have a Top level domain. At last you need a directory script to set your directory. phpld, Esyndicate, phplynx are the great scripts with the paid and free both versions. Installation of these scripts are simpler than any other ever seen. Once installed just have some nice template that suites the directory niche. set the category and mailer of your directories. there are many pre made category dumps out over the web. Use any of them or create your own.
Once you have setted your directory and you are ready to enter the market to promote your directory. Just post a thread at Solicitation and announcement board in Digital point will make your directory running. As many of hungry peoples are waiting in DP to Add there links to the new directories. All you need is just to enter in the list of Directory submitters, they make your traffic graph go higher.
The initial promotion will surely make you grab the attention for advertisers. but the Big money making part in Directory is Featured links. You need to fascinate Directory submitter about your directory. Generally Featured link buyer are not found easily to any new directory. Here you need to work hard. Go out to classified, banner marketing and link ads.
For banner marketing try out Entrecard network, as entrecard works with Blogs you have a chance of good lead and traffic. For Link ads many are out there with little risk factor. I suggest trying Spider market. with the nice mechanism for payment. You can Buy text links. inspite you can also generate a backlinks to increase page rank.
Last way for money making idea is with Google Adsense, with your proper promotion of directory you get good CPM ads over adsense.
Well that’s what all i think ! let me know your views too.
