Making Money from a Website 

Ways to monetize your website:

As an affiliate, you promote services and products on your website for a fee.

Enrol in Awin’s affiliate network to access big companies like TripAdvisor, Etsy, and Nike.

Skimlinks, on the other hand, maybe implemented on your website to automatically monetize your content.

Skimlinks will automatically transform every link to a retailer in your article into an affiliate link!

You’ll get compensated if a customer purchases via your link.

Commissions range from 2% to 10%.

Add banners 

Embed Google AdSense or Media.net code on your site to generate network advertising.

Add banners imageTaboola is another popular way for bloggers to monetize their material.

It operates by presenting content from its network rather than banners.

These networks pay you per click (CPC) or per 1,000 impressions (CPM) (cost per impression, or CPM).

You may also sell banner advertisements directly to businesses.

Since you choose the pricing, the advertiser knows (hopefully) who your target audience is!

Copy and paste code from Google AdSense or Media.net onto your site to produce network advertising.

You may charge a monthly fee for simple text links to an advertiser’s website (in-content advertising).

You might also trust each click.

You may post your offer on marketplaces like Backlinks and Links Panel.

Sell to the email list

Bloggers lament not launching an email list sooner. 

email list

Create an AWeber account to capture and retain visitors after they leave your site.

Your product suggestions will earn you rewards if they join or buy.

Sponsored posts 

Sponsored posts, often known as advertorials, are articles that incorporate an advertiser’s website link.

If you write an article for advertising, you may charge for your time.

Sponsored posts might pay $35 to $200+ depending on your website’s popularity.

Join Facebook blogger groups and post your website to attract sponsors.

Note: An article published on your site must always be marked “Sponsored Post” somewhere on the page.

Sell digital items 

These digital products might help you earn passive income from your website.

Sell digital items

Charge $2.99 for 5,000 words – not much, but 20 monthly purchases add up.

See the Envato Marketplace for ideas.

Sell tangibles 

Use your website to offer tangible things as well.

You may create t-shirts or mugs with your site’s logo on Zazzle.

You may also sell handcrafted items on eBay or Etsy.

Connecting your website to the marketplace gives you an advantage over other retailers on the network.

Include a directory 

Create a business directory page where businesses pay a predetermined cost to be listed.

You might charge a monthly or yearly listing fee ranging from $20 to $500 (and above).

Assume you owned a website evaluating audio systems.

For high-end speaker vendors, you may charge independent businesses (both offline and online).

Publish premium content on a laptop in bed 

You may make money by creating really beneficial material.

Assume you own a gaming website and can write an essay on some obscure tactics.

You may attract the visitor with ideas and a password-protected website (a WordPress feature).

After paying through PayPal, the reader receives the password to access the premium material.

Prices range from $2-$10 for a quality piece.

Major media sites including The Telegraph and The Times have employed this strategy recently.

Membership forum 

With free WordPress plugins like bbPress, you may create a “members only” forum.

Membership forum

You may then charge a monthly membership or a one-time access price.

Creating value for forum users determines how much you may earn.

You’ve won when your forum users become a true community that networks and shares information.

Set up a web course 

Create an online course as a website add-on.

In this case, visitors pay to have access to more information.

You may upload the course to Udemy or AWeber to reach a larger audience.

If your website is about crafts, you might educate people on how to crochet.

Create an affiliate programme 

Set up your own affiliate network and hire other affiliates to help you promote.

This might increase sales and visitors to your website.

Getting started is easy with free WordPress plugins.

While some of our clients use affiliate networks like Awin, others (like Amazon) do it alone.

This means any technique can work.

A Hire Me page 

Make a personal website 

personal websiteBuilding a website teaches you new skills that may help you make money on the side.

Begin by offering freelance blogging and writing skills via a ‘Hire Me’ page.

Instead of promoting your website, why not advertise yourself as a developer?

You may also provide these services through Upwork.

A freelance writer may earn between $20 and $50 per hour.

And Upwork isn’t the only option.

Donate 

Request two pounds (a coffee) through PayPal from website visitors who like your work.

You may link to a Buy Me A Coffee page if you have a Buy Me A Coffee page.

Some of the most popular websites rely on contributions, including yours and mine, Wikipedia.

No one gets anything without asking.

Set up an Amazon shop 

Amazon is great since it sells practically everything.

That means Amazon presumably has something linked to your website.

If a reader clicks on your link and buys anything, you get a 1% – 10% commission.

Make YouTube videos 

Making videos for your website may keep people engaged and make you money. 

YouTube videos

A YouTube video with Google AdSense (Google has a handy guide on doing that here).

Also, read our guide on getting money through YouTube.

After creating your video material, you may embed it on your blog.

A viral video may make you hundreds in ad income.

Be a consultant 

Why not contribute your expertise for an hourly fee? 

Promote your services through paid seminars, podcasts, or even Skype sessions.

Regardless of the medium, you should charge for professional assistance on your website.

Buy a website 

A monetized and well-trafficked website is an asset.

Your website, like any other asset, may be sold through sites like Flippa and BusinessesForSale.com.

You might expect two to three times your yearly profit if you sell.

This is just a tiny sample.

Its goal is to motivate you to start your website, understanding that there’s massive profit potential.

If you have not set up your website yet, do so immediately.

You can do that with a Free Domain Name and hosting with Wealthy Affiliate.

Anyone can build a website — even my own grandmother!

All the Best

Good Bye

  1. Nice of you to give tips on how to make money with your site. You don’t just have to have a website, you have to work on it regularly to have a regular income. For me, the best option is to put partnerships in your texts that will help you make some money.

      Yes, partnerships will help you build your business. Also, we have to remember to put customers first and the money will come later. It also helps to establish a brand so customers get to know us and buy from us.

  2. Wow amazing and insightful. I am definitely going to bookmark this page. I am a 4-month-old member of wealthy affiliate, but I have not come across some of these easy ways to monetize my site.

    I tried google Adsense but my application was rejected. I also applied to Skimlinks same thing. I think it is because my site is new or has no steady traffic. I am hoping to try again in near future. 

    This is quite an informative article. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I am also in the affiliate marketing field. I started my journey 5 years back and today I am the owner of 4 successful websites. Along with all this, I am also a member of the WA community. These helped me a lot to learn the ins and outs of this field with the help of video tutorials and articles, moreover, these people were always there to help me whenever I was facing any issues with my website, ranking, etc. I think this is a great emerging field, although it requires a lot of hard work and patience, but once you gain the trust of your readers then there is no looking back.

    • Thank you, Hari, for your comment,

      Yes, WA is great and I also learned a lot from them. I only joined on 21 September 2021 and I am still working hard to generate an income. I know that you have to earn the trust of your customers and then the money will come. I do have 3 websites so I am always busy publishing articles. 

      I wish you all the best

      Elke
