How do I Make Money With My Website
Published: November 18, 2020
When it comes to owning a website, people often wonder if there are ways to make money with it. Well, making money through a website has never been more possible! Some of the strategies are simple, while others take time. Here are a few ways you can make money with your website:
Sell Products or a Service
This is probably the first thing that came to your mind. If your business involves selling something, from catering or even just merchandise for your company, then you can sell it on your website. In fact, you probably built your website with this idea in mind. If you didn't, ask your web designer or do some research on how to set up a shop on your website.
Sell Ad Space
This is the method you probably came here to learn about. Selling ad space on a website is common practice and is great for many businesses, blogs, and social sites. The most common model is the pay-per-click model, meaning you get paid every time someone clicks an ad. On average, a click is worth about $0.25, so you need to have lots of traffic if you want to be making a good stream of income.
The easiest way to set this up is to use Google AdSense. This allows Google to add advertisements that will be relevant to your customers. Alternatively, you could reach out to companies but this will require a lot more research and extra coding. However, if you're specific about what you want, this might be the way to go. You could even negotiate a higher payment per click!
This means a partnership with an affiliate business where you promote their product. This is generally in the form of a link in a video description or an article. You charge the affiliate per click on the link (like an ad), or you can charge every time someone uses the link you shared to buy something from the affiliate. As you might have guessed, this is a higher payout as you're literally making the affiliate money!
So take some time to figure out what method is best for your website, and good luck!
