Question How Does This Business Model Works?

I just found a video about an interesting business model to earn money from home with websites, but i didn't really understand how i can earn money if i don't sell any products or offer any services on my website. There is something about Ads they buy/invest, but i didn't get it.

Has anyone done this before or do u have any experience in this field?

Many thanks in advance,
Jessica

Oh yes, I searched on youtube.com for ďiiabĒ it was the third or fourth result with the blond woman talking. The website was a little bit confusing at iiab.com

Sounds like they're talking about arbitrage.

Basically, you buy Pay Per Click advertising (such as AdWords) for "cheap" keywords to drive traffic to your site. On your site, you've created landing pages that focus on related, but more expensive, keywords. You load those pages with contextual advertising (such as AdSense).

The idea is that when visitors land on these pages, enough of them will click on the (expensive keyword) contextual ads to cover the cost of the (cheap keywords) PPC advertising, plus give you a profit.

If you're very very skilled with it, arbitrage can -- in theory -- work, at least for a time. I know of people who claim they've made money with it. But as PPC keywords keep going up in price, it gets harder and harder to pull off.

And it's risky. If you aren't as good at it as you think you are, or if you just get unlucky, or the market shifts more quickly under you than you anticipate, it can cost you a whole pile of money really, really fast.

Besides the risks, which are great, most of these arbitrage programs are out and out scams.

In my opinion, you should run away from this program as fast as you can.

Caveat emptor!

Thank you Torka and David for the quick answer and explanations. I found a couple of further information about this model and i am a little bit confused now. Some people and blogger wrote, it can be risky other say they were very successful. I'll test the trial on the weekend maybe.

Thanks and greetings,
Jessica

Hello Jessy:
If you will enter in this business model you would be aware of having enough experience with AdWords to promote your own website, you could use some special handbooks for it!
Good Luck

Smile internet in a box-the real deal

Hi Jessy,

iiab has been developed by Geekdom, part of the Photon Group. Now I've thrown my hat in the ring, let me explain that we've been making money using this business model for some time and we created iiab to pass on that knowledge and expertise.
This means anyone who's interested in running a home business can do so with all of our skills built in - we've made it so simple you don't need any previous experience in website creation, marketing or monetisation. All you have to do create a website based on your passion or area of interest and write about it! Give us a call or email if you have any more queries, we'd be happy to help.

We're also running a seven day free trial, so you could give it a go without any commitment or worries.
Hope this helps.

Hi Philip, i hardly suggest you post this as a new thread so others could be able to help you more. I'm sorry I don't have enough insight regarding your question to answer it myself.

And Jessica, scams are proliferate and I hope you choose wisely. I have stumbled upon a forum discussing adsense and adwords maybe researching there would help.
