Just pick your products and niches wisely so you can benefit from your efforts.


#2. Add Google AdSense

This is another simple way to monetize your website without having to do a lot of work. When you sign up and allow Google to place an HTML code or codes on your website, you can get paid simply because people click on the ads that appear in that space.

While Google is the largest advertiser network in the world, the percentage you make may not be that high. You have to make sure you know how much you are being paid for every click your website visitors do.

Normally, this is called Pay Per Click Advertising and Google is not the only company that does this. You may want to research this to maximize your website’s money potential. The alternatives may be easier to join than Google’s AdSense, plus you have a variety of ways to display those ads.


#3. Sell Ad Space

You do not have to do business with Google or other pay per click advertisers. You can use your website to make money by selling ad space to people who need better exposure for their products.

Plus, you have a variety of methods you can do as long as your pricing is fair and honest. You can say that a sidebar add is $10 per month of a column inch of ad space. Or you may charge by the amount of impressions the ad gets.

The latter format is called CPM and you can charge $5 per thousand CPMs. How you sell your ad space is up to you but the key is you have to have the traffic to make it worth the advertiser’s time and expense. Having 30 visitors per month may not do the trick.


#4. Develop And Sell Your Own Online Courses

The trick here is that you do not need a lot of degrees behind your name to do this. You can develop your own courses then sell them to people who know less about the topic than you do.

online education

Of course, the key to doing this is to make sure you can answer your student’s questions, and help them solve their problems. Then you need to present this material in a way that is beneficial, not insulting to their intelligence and the students gets value from it.

After you develop those online courses, you can use your website to market them and have a web page outlining the costs involved, the objectives, how to pay for the courses and so on.

Also, you can market your online courses through social media outlets to help build your audience.


#5. Sell Your Own Products

This will eventually turn into a good money maker because you do not have middlemen or vendors taking a large cut of the cost action.

You would be your own vendor and salesman which translates into you keeping all the revenues except for any expensese that need to be paid.

If you are good at creating unique crafts, that is something you can market. Just keep the price reasonable so people will be attracted to both the craft and the price. Yet, that is not all there is to this.

Your landing page on your website needs to be top notch and very convincig. Plus, you have to set aside money for taxes and other hidden costs that crop up from time to time. You need to work on all the details before you get started.


#6. Accept Sponsored Content

Sometimes this type of content is called native advertising and it works for you. The companies pay you to post their sponsored content and that content is relevant to your website content.

Then you can add reviews of the company’s products to help further sales. The key here is to make sure you do this right. If you don’t the irrelevant and poor content may turn your readership off.

You always have to work at keeping the value, the credibility and the honesty of your content at the highest levels to maintain readership and revenue.


#7. You Can Sell Your Website

While this may be a one time way to monetize your website, you are still making some money off of it and taking the right steeps to reach your financial goal. You may be making some money off your website yet it is worth considering selling it.

affiliate marketing revenue

For example, if you are making roughly $500 a month through your website, you can sell it for 10 times or more than that monthly revenue. In other words, you can get between $5,000 and $10,000 quickly.

Believe it or not, there are at least 3 websites where you can market your website and get a fair price for it. You may enjoy the monthly income your website is generating, but a quick sell nets you a nice chunk of change while relieving you of all the hard work you have to do.


#8. Become A Consultant

This is another good way to monetize your website. Using it to help others is a great way to earn extra cash and make a positive contribution to society at the same time. You can call yourself a consultant or coach, either way, you have what others need.

Again, you do not have to have a lot of degrees after your name to do this type of work. You just need to have a lot of knowledge on different aspects of life that is valuable and worthwhile.

There are a lot of people desparately trying to lose weight. You can turn that need into a consulting business helping those people get the support and help they need to reach their weight goals.

In this business you have a myriad of opportunities to explore to help monetize your website.


#9. Create A Paid Membership Plan

You do not have to have a large supply of top movies or television shows to do this. But it is a great way to monetize your website and making it income producing. Paid memberships do not have to be made of high fees.


You should make sure that the information your members get is top quality and something they may not get anywhere else for free. One option is where you can offer top gardening tips on hard to grow plants.

Your members get access to exclusive information while having a platform to talk with others in the plan. Just make sure the pricing is fair and honest and that your members are getting something for the money they are paying you.

Sports is a good way to help people improve by giving them top rated tips and hints. The sky is the limit on what you can discuss here.


#10. Provide A Service

#11. Accept Donations

You may not like the idea of being given free money for performing no work, but adding a donation button to your webpage will monetize your web site and help you earn extra money.

    Hi Strahinj,

    To be honest, I personally prefer to be an affiliate marketer, because you do the hard work once, and your site will continue to earn you income passively.

    Creating courses is not exactly my thing, I’m also what you would call a one-trick pony!

    I only know software development, which goes hand-in-hand with web development so you can see why it is such a natural fit for me(affiliate marketing that is)…

    I’ve been meaning to go into podcasting, I hear it’s a great way to generate quality backlinks to your site.

    Anyways, the short answer to your question is that I will be implementing affiliate marketing and podcasting…

    What is your favorite way of generating income online?

    • Strahinja says:

      You said it right Kay.

      The hard work here pays off. That is a great thing about affiliate marketing.

      I have most success with making targeted posts. Targeting a specific product and keyword.

      Thank you for reading.
