Make $500/month with Photoshop Tutorial Sites

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by Chopster, Aug 7, 2008.

    This is one of the first successful methods that I personally used to make $10 to $20/day with Adsense.

    Method Overview:
    1. Buy a domain and hosting.
    2. Create website or blog to showcase tutorials.
    3. Create a Photoshop tutorial.
    4. Add Adsense to the tutorial page.
    5. Submit to major Photoshop tutorial websites. 6. Immediately get up to 300 hits/day from the traffic.
    7. Repeat Steps 3 thru 6 over and over again.
    8. Make lots of money!

    If you like Photoshop, then it is a great method. I usually get 1 tutorial done every 30 minutes and the tutorials receive traffic for years later. On average, over a 1 year period, I have make $.20 cents/day for each tutorial.

    Long term income:
    20 cents x 365 or 1 year = $73 bucks per tutorial.
    20 cents x 2 years = $146 bucks per tutorial.
    ...and so on.

    If you aren't a Photoshop expert, you can also consider outsourcing the tutorials from the Buy/Sell/Trade forum on DP.

    Remember that you can hire someone in the BST forum on DP to make them.
    Or you could use getafreelancer.com or scriptlance.com to make them for $10/each.

    It's quite hard to get some tutorial experts to write for you at cheap rates. If they are experts, they would rather write and earn money from their own blog/site.

    This idea actually works if the writer has passion in photoshop.

    I once wrote a Maya tutorial and gets about 244 hits per month. I have never submitted the link to any websites.

    My second Maya tutorial got 1000 hits per month. But it's seasonal because it was a tutorial tied to a promotional event that will fade with time.

    After submitting to websites, I have no doubt the thread starter's numbers are real.

    That's a lot of money to pay for a tutorial.
    I have outsourced them before through scriptlance.com for as cheap as $10.
    I know that you could probably find some members here on DP to do it also for this price.

    This has less to do about photoshop making you money with adsense than it does lots of easy traffic. Sounds like you found an easy way to get traffic. Good work sir. Hope you keep increasing those numbers.

    Good Information.

    Photoshop is becoming essential these days for Internet marketing.

    Photoshop and related tutorials can be explored to drive traffic to the site and earn money.

    I also made some good money simply by writing the e-book regarding photoshop tricks . It was really cool.


    Regards

    Chopster, can you add adsense between in wordpress post.

    I have a photoshop tutorial site here. Example of post, for the question below.
    http://tutorialdirectory.net/2008/07/setting-a-book-on-fire-tutorial-in-photoshop/

    I want sure if I can add adsense in the actual posts. At the end or in the beginning.

    I got about three more tutorials I need to write. But I was searching, the DP forums to see if what I want to do is allowed first of all.

    For photoshop tutorials, web tutorials are nice, but really awesome effects gets you good visitors.
