The Future of Content Monetization and Publishing

The first panel session of the 2012 Affiliate Summit West was the future of content monetization and publishing with Murray Newlands, Ian Fernando, Steve Hall and me. During the session, we answered the following question:

Publishing is going through change but where is it now and what practical ethical steps can publishers take to increase revenue while improving content?

The session targeted intermediate level affiliate publishers trying to monetize their content. We covered a lot of points that would take up thousands of words to blog about. However, I have something better: a video of the entire session! The video is an hour long so grab some popcorn, pull up a chair, and enjoy.

  17. This is indeed a NEEDED video in our industry and I just have to embed this for my readers at MSB. Just the other day I had someone ask how to monetize a blog and I told them to go for building a list instead just as John suggested…but if they were to see this then they would have countless ideas.

    I also liked the analogy of “church and state” used in reference to “advertorials” as this is just part of where the industry is heading.

    Also, I totally agree that some of the best content ideas come from commenters and the various questions ppl ask me. And as long as you deliver the good content then monetization will eventually follow on its own just as it did for these three bloggers 🙂

    John, I just watched the video, very interesting, I’m on your email list.

  20. Thank you for posting this video from ASW! I had already signed up for your email subscription and I am learning a lot about how to create my own simply by getting your updates. Do you find that the initial pop up performs better than the static subscription option on your site?

        @MarketSecretsBlogger Going through another site doesn’t work. The actual YouTube video is marked private, so the general public can’t view it.

  25. YES it can be viewed at the link link given if you just follow the instructs below the vid…I know this because I am the one who have a reserve copy of it 🙂
