How To Make Money From Your Website:
Okay, with this post maybe I’m skipping the complex stuff like how to pick the right market and get traffic in the first place, but I wanted to show a few different monetization methods that can be used for almost any type of site. It is also important to show the end result of all research and promotion and that there is a way to save time after all as my site says the goal is to create income online both legitimate and passive. So, before I list the different “programs”, I should point out that the amount you can earn will largely depend on the theme of your website and how much traffic you get. Often times, people will understand the concept of the amount of traffic, but forget about the topic completely and wonder why their 1000 visitors are not making any profit. That being said, here they are:
Probably the biggest online advertising platform and the one most people have heard of. Adsense is mostly suited for high traffic sites and also a wide range of topics as it seems to adapt really well to different visitors and content. Essentially, Google is trying to show the most relevant advertisement to that visitor. In theory, then, they’re more likely to click on it if that’s what they’re looking for.
Pros: No problem getting paid (it’s Google after all) and easy setup, it’s just a piece of code. As mentioned, this can be really good for large sites with a lot of different types of content.
Cons: Google takes a pretty big percentage of your revenue cut, around 40%. Prices per click can vary wildly, anywhere between 5p and £ 5 that I have seen, so it can be difficult to judge how much you are going to earn.
Company Affiliate Programs
These are basically just affiliate programs set up by online retailers and businesses to offer you a commission on the sales you generate. For example, if you have a weightlifting site, you can sign up for a fitness stores affiliate program and embed their banners and links on your site. Almost all of them will be paid per sale i.e. you won’t get paid per click, but it will still be free to sign up and try them out. You can find them in a network link commission junction, trade dubber or just go to their site and see if they have a schedule.
Pros: The commissions can be quite high depending on the store and if you generate good sales, they will likely give you an increase in your commission. If you can find a business that provides exactly the product / service that your visitors are looking for, the conversion rates and sales can be very high.
Cons: Payments can sometimes be a problem as you may be dealing with a small business. The most important thing is to build a relationship with them over time so that you know what to expect from them and vice versa. Also, finding the perfect company to work with can be time consuming, a lot depends on its site and how it converts customers into sales, if there is a flaw here no matter how much traffic you get to them. send.
Sell advertising on your site
This method of making money from your blog can take many forms, but it’s mostly about advertisers coming to you because you have a popular site and they know you have traffic, I don’t. never seen it work when you go looking for advertisers. This can range from selling banners on your site to regular links, but the main principle is that they pay for the ad on a fixed cost basis i.e. you don’t earn less or more money based on the volume of business you provide them.
Pros: You don’t have to deliver a certain number of clicks or sales to advertisers, so it’s worry-free. Also, as mentioned in most cases, advertisers will come to you (if you have a large site) so there isn’t a lot of work involved in that either, it’s that close to the money too. easy than with internet marketing.
Cons: Who wants to wait for people to bid on your site? I prefer to do my own business Listing prices vary widely and you will need to negotiate the best deal. Also, keep in mind that Google has a policy against selling links for SEO purposes on your site, so you should take this into account.
Sell your site
It is the only one that I did not do as I have to admit because I see it as a trap 22. For example, if a site is making money every month, why would you want to sell it? Likewise, if your site isn’t making any money, why would anyone want to buy it? However, I know people who have sold their sites for a good price, and this is often to a company that can monetize the traffic much better i.e. they can now sell their products directly on the site. instead of just banners / links. You will need to use some sort of broker to negotiate the transfer of the money and the domain name and they will take a discount. Sites like Flippa will allow you to put your site up for sale and they will also help you negotiate transfer (I think)
Pros: It can be a lot of money if you have the right business that really wants the site. Leaves you free to work on new sites after the sale.
Cons: Pricing can be difficult, some people use 15-18 months of income as a final value marker, but there is no hard and fast rule. You lose your monthly paycheck. The broker is going to take a cut. Also, by listing your site on sites like Flippa or eBay, you will get a lot of fake bidders, much easier if the seller comes to you first and you work from there.
So these are the main ways to make money with your site that I know of. Again, like I said at the start, it all depends on what site you have and what market you are in. However, I have to say that if you have a site that ranks and gets targeted traffic, you are going to make money with it one way or another, that is, even if you don’t. do nothing, people will email you with offers. Guess that’s why I spend most of my time building my sites and worrying about the financial side later on.
