How To Make Money With Semalt SEO
Today we are going to talk about how you can have income with SEO. Different ways to turn search engine optimization into hard cash. Are you interested?
Well, that's right, SEO can be converted into Euros, dollars or whatever currency you use. There are different ways and jobs for SEO to translate into revenue, and today I'm going to go over the main ones.
Each of these opportunities requires a different SEO style, with different processes and techniques that will be tailored to each case.
Likewise, the amount of time we'll need in some and other forms of business to reach our earnings goal also changes.
In addition to all this, I will share with you the best SEO tool that will definitely make your life easier: the SEO Personal Dashboard, an all-in-one SEO tool.
Let's start with this series of jobs that will help you earn income from SEO:
1. Provide SEO services as a freelancer
Obviously, serving other companies is a good way to make a living from SEO.
Many businesses on the Internet don't work because of a poor SEO strategy or directly because of non-existent work on website or content optimization.
The market is huge and the opportunities are numerous. The difficult thing is to find a company willing to invest in SEO and convince them that you are the right person to do the job.
In this case, we suggest you make SEO your main source of income. In fact, you can provide services to other companies, helping them with their SEO planning and optimization. To make sure you succeed in your mission every time, get the DSD tool, a better SEO tool.
How much does professional SEO cost?
This is a good question and the truth is that it can't be determined or quantified exactly.
It will depend a lot on the services you are hired for, the level of involvement you bring to the company as a professional, the amount of work you will be subjected to and most importantly, it will depend on the quality of your services and the value of SEO to that company.
Why is it difficult to be a freelance SEO?
Working with this profile is complicated and it will require all your patience, knowledge and commitment.
There are different situations that get complicated when you work in SEO:
- It is difficult to explain to a client that the results of their investment are not dated on the calendar. Therefore, you can set logical deadlines, but it is very difficult to determine a date when your work will start to deliver the results the company expects.
- Customers come and go. Businesses tend to think of SEO as something that needs no maintenance, something you invest in and once it pays off, you don't have to touch it. It's something that you have to be able to explain well. It means that there are times with high work saturation and times when the load is very low. You have to learn to manage it.
- Your work and your client's investment depends on an algorithm. It's so hard.
2. Position your business with SEO
What if you take the plunge and turn your 1.0 business into a 2.0? Another very valid option. Many companies do not have an online presence: in terms of marketing their products or services, not even an informative presence.
This is an opportunity to be seized. If you have a business or know someone who does and you're not on the Internet, you need to try it.
Create a small store if you sell any type of product, or an information page if you provide a service. Then position it with SEO and you will open up new revenue streams.
The advantage of SEO and online marketing is that anyone can do it and with moderate investments, you can be present on the network, attracting customers, subscribers or simply contacts. The ideal tool to help you both attract customers and retain them is the SEO Personal Dashboard.
How to apply SEO to an existing business?
This is obviously a topic we can't cover in one podcast, but as I always tell you, plan your strategy well, identify your ideal consumer, work on the keywords that affect your industry, and start optimizing.

3. Positioning of niche pages
A classic in the world of online entrepreneurship. The first thing, what is a niche page? Well, a niche page is a page that deals with a very specific topic and provides all the necessary information about it.
An example of a niche would be a pitbull puppy page for example. As you can see, this is a very specific topic and one that can be delved into by creating information and content that is of interest to a certain group of people, a micro-niche when it is very small and concise or a niche when it is a larger issue or topic.
How to make money with a niche or micro-niche?
Here you have different options. First of all, you need to do the work of creating this website with a specific theme. Let's take the case of pitbull puppies for example. You will do a KW search and optimize your site and content geared towards ranking for the words you want.
Once your SEO work yields results, you can get revenue in 2 ways:
- Via Adsense or Google advertising: you already know that we can include ads from the AdSense platform, which is Google's advertising network. The amount of income will depend on the theme that your niche offers and the amount of traffic you get. You already know that there are topics that are more profitable than others, such as insurance, investments, higher education... but they also take a harder time positioning them because there is a lot of competition.
- Through sponsors: let's say we've reached the top for the keyword "pitbull puppy food". Surely if there is a company that markets a meal of this type, they will be interested in making a deal with us so we can give them a place on our website. Something beneficial for both.
4. Creating a site to sell as an affiliate
One of the options that are also very successful is to sell products as an affiliate.
In concept, this is also similar to creating a niche website, but the way you generate income changes completely. Let's say my pitbull puppy blog continues to go from strength to strength and I'm getting more and more traffic. I'm getting about 250-300 visits daily and I'm considering setting up small e-commerce, a small store with products related to puppy care, pets, dogs, toys... anything that can be put into it.
It's a good idea to generate the income you're looking for, but of course, setting up an e-commerce is something very complex and requires hours of work beforehand: economic investment, search for suppliers, stock management...
However, you can save yourself all these tasks. For example, you can find an online pet store that allows you to sell as an affiliate and receive a commission for each sale. This is a very common way to offer products and have a source of income without getting too messy.
However, if you are a freelancer, SEO agency, or just an individual, you can participate in the Semalt Partner Program.
Obviously, the benefits won't be as high as if we were the original seller, but in these cases, it can be enough. Indeed, you can find commissions of all kinds, from 1% to 70%, depending on the products and the company that lends them.
Aliexpress, Amazon, eBay... You have hundreds of companies that offer this option of selling as an affiliate.
5. Creating SEO training content
Finally, which is not to say that there are no more methods to generate income through SEO, we are going to talk about how to make money through teaching courses and tutorials on this topic.
First of all, you obviously need to be a person who knows the subject, in this case, SEO. You need to be able to express yourself correctly, knowing how to explain is more complicated than it seems but not only that. You also have to know how to use practical cases, to rely on experiences, and to tell success and failure stories, helping others to perhaps set up a profitable business.
Just for today, I hope you find what I've said interesting and decide to take the plunge and create some of these revenue-generating initiatives.
There is no doubt that SEO is the key to your success on the internet. To this end, to enable you to make money with SEO, we have just shared with you 5 practical ideas that will definitely help you.
