Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Would someone care to explain exactly what a White Label program is, how it works and how you would go about jumping on this particular bandwagon.
Things are ticking along nicely at the moment but I need to do something different, learn something new, but don't really have any idea where to start.
Some of them will have dynamically updating datafeeds, some are static sites. One good program I can recommend who'll set you up with a white label site is eVitamins. Also many ringtone programs offer white label sites.
I'm in the travelbusiness and using an affiliate booking-engine which is completely modified into my own style.
I'm able to say "ABCDE (my site)has cheap fares available now!"
Customer is thinking that he/she is buying from my company, but it isn't.
In my opinion a great way of doing business with minimised risks.
Can anyone sticky me with any merchants that provide this service without having to have proof of existing traffic. I would prefer to find a good market and then go for the domain and hosting.
It doesn't matter what the market is. I have looked about but I can only find travel and ringtone type merchants.
Are there others.
Iam sure there are a lot of better white labels out there. I too am tired of developing from scratch everytime I want to work on a new project. But if you are very meticulous on how you want your site to run, I guess it will be hard to find just the right white label to spend your marketing effort on.
I won't mention the widget that I'm punting or its accessories ;oP
The Story So Far.
Bought the site and domain name.
Fiddled with the images and layout to give it a bit of appeal.
Changed the <title><keywords><description> tags to avoid getting busted on dupe content on the code.
Uploaded the site on 23/10/05.
Submitted to about 50 directories.(I'm not scared of the sandbox ;oP besides, i think i shall be relying on traffic from links rather than SE's for the time being.)
29/10/05 Homepage is listed in all major SE's and scored 2 direct hits each from G, Y and MSN searches. The search terms were broad-ish but hey the homepage ranks in the top 10 for those 3 word terms.
So far the site has been live for 7 days and has had 36 unique visitors, 6 from se's and the rest from the directory submissions.
Earnings to date: £1.54
I'll keep you posted
Google is now listing over 100 pages following the recent/continuing update. The site still has pr0 (I missed the update by a few days). I am getting 10-15 visitors per day from google and making an average of 3 sales every 2 days. OK it's nothing special at the moment but the site has paid for itself and is now in profit. MSN currently lists 45 pages and sends me 3-6 visitors per day. Yahoo lists the homepage only and sends no more than 3 per week. I have done nothing to the site since I uploaded it. It has now been submitted to about 50 directories and the backlinks now show up in the SE's.
Earnings to date £84.82
I will leave the site well alone for a couple of months as I don't want to work on it and then find it bombs for dupe content or something.
I will post again when something significant happens.
