Increasing Profits on Download Pages
When I first started selling online my download pages basically had a link to the download and contact information. It’s what everyone else was doing, so I followed along. After a few years I decided to try and actually make money on my download pages.
At first I put AdSense ads and was getting a lot of clicks. Woohoo! Then I found out that was a violation of the AdSense TOS. Oops! Needless to say, I removed them.
I then started recommending “required” products & services that people will need. When possible I used an affiliate link or recommended something I was selling. This worked well but I wasn’t satisfied so I started advertising a product that was related to what they where downloading. This made a lot more money than the “required” recommendations.
The last thing I tried was an on-exit ad related to the download. This one doesn’t make a lot but is worth it.
That about covers it.
