8 Easiest Ways To Earn With Your Blog/Website.
Monetizing your blog or website isn’t easy at all but with these tips, I’m sure you can start earning. It’s all a matter of time because no one gets rich overnight.
1. Pay Per Click Advertising (Google AdSense)
You can use Google AdSense to make money from your blog/website. AdSense allows publishers to get into Google’s vast advertising network so that advertisers can run ads on their websites.
When you sign up for AdSense, Google will embed a code on your site that will show the content of your website and start displaying relevant advertisements.
For example: If your website is all about food, Google AdSense will start showing your visitors ads for healthy food, food for diabetic people, and many more.
Anytime someone clicks on the ad, you earn. You can start earning from $0.50 – $5 per click and if your site has lots of traffic, you can earn $100 -$1,000 every month.
2. Sell Ad Space
Making money from your website isn’t restricted to Google AdSense alone. You can also, sell ad space on your blog or website directly to companies looking for advertising space. (I personally used this technique with the help of the Yaioa Subscription tool and made lots of money).
The Yaioa Subscription tool is a multipurpose tool that will help you achieve more than you ever imagined. It has helped many bloggers and website owners sell ad space easily.
Some of my friends were banned from using Google AdSense and they thought they won’t find any other network where they can earn then I introduced them to the Yaioa Subscription plan. Now they earn recurring revenue from their website.
Selling ad space on your website has never been this easy. The three things you need to do to get started with the Yaioa Subscription tool are:
- Sign up as a vendor
- Create a subscription for your website
1. Sign up as a vendor
To sign up as a vendor visit https://www.yaioa.com/register. It’s very easy and it takes not more than a minute.
2. Create a Subscription for your Website
After signing up as a vendor the next thing to do is to “Add a subscription”. You can easily do this on your Vendor dashboard. Go to your dashboard and click Add subscription.
Fill in all the necessary information needed like the subscription price, subscription description, subscription location, subscription duration, etc. When you’re done click save.
Your subscription will be reviewed and if met all the requirements, it will go live.
After this, advertisers, visitors, or companies that come to the YAIOA site to buy Ad space to advertise their products and services would see your subscription and when they click on it, it will direct them to where they can make payment for your Ad space.
Once they made the payment, you can place the banner on your website and it will start running for the duration it was subscribed for.
The YAIOA platform also helps to market your site to thousands of advertisers and can even do direct pitching which will help you get more clients for your website.
3. Affiliate Marketing
Another way you can make money from your blog/website is by doing affiliate marketing. To begin with Affiliate marketing, the first thing you need to do is to look for products/services that you would like to recommend. Then endorse the product on your website and promote it to your site visitors and email subscribers.
If your visitors like the products or services, they will click on your affiliate link to purchase the product. By clicking on your affiliate link, you get a commission. The commission might be 30% or 70% of the product or service price.
4. Sell Your Own Digital Products
Selling your own digital product (eBook) is a good way to earn from your website. But creating a good product that is well made and polished needs lots of time and resources (like content, design, etc).
Selling your own digital product on your site can at times bring problematic issues like payment gateways, taxes, and others.
You will also need a well-designed, persuasive landing page to ensure your digital product has a strong conversion rate.
If you managed to get a good product and a well-designed landing page then you are good to go.
5. Build an Email List
Your email list comprises your most loyal readers. The aim is to convert strangers who visit your blog for the first time into passionate followers that will be updated with your latest content or work.
This is one of the best long-term strategies that will profitably grow your blog and you’ll make money from it.
Build a strong relationship with your followers by offering great information or helping them for free.
Don’t spam your followers with unsolicited offers, this will sabotage your long-term goals and abuse the reader’s trust.
6. Generate leads for other Companies
Businesses are looking for new leads to know about their products or services. They are always searching for creative ways to find new sources of leads to help them grow.
For instance: Your website teaches about math skills. Your reader’s information such as phone number and email address would be of great value to various online schools that are looking to sell their courses to proactive and eager students.
Basically, you are connecting two parties who can benefit one another. It is like affiliate marketing but it does not matter if your reader ends up buying their product or not. The companies are just looking for an introduction at this point.
You can find such offers at ;
7. Accept Sponsored Posts and Articles
If you have successfully built steady traffic to your site, and have an engaging community then start accepting sponsored posts and articles and monetize your blog.
Most companies look for blogs that will feature their sponsored content. You can as well review products from companies in an advertorial (part content, part advertisement).
For example, if your website is all about Android games for Android phones, the creator of those ads would want you to review and feature their app to your fans.
If you do it right, you can earn well but if done poorly with irrelevant site content, it can gradually destroy all of the reader’s goodwill you have worked so hard to build in the first place.
8. Flip Your Websites
If you have a site with lots of traffic, sold a few products on it, or use it to sell ad space, you can sell it to someone and earn.
I don’t usually suggest to people flip their websites or blogs but it can be very lucrative. For example, if your site is making $400 every month via selling ad space, you might be able to sell the site for $4,000 -$8,000 (that’s about 12 times – 22 times monthly income).
You can also sell ready-made sites. They are much cheaper but you will make some money from them.
You can sell your site at:
Other Ways you can monetize your website include:
1. Start a private forum or coaching class
You may have skills that others can benefit from. Set up a forum or class to help and train people and generate recurring income.
2. Create a membership site
This is also another way you can generate recurring revenue.
3. Offer coupons with your affiliate links
So many people are looking for discounts and promo codes for everything. If you can find a valid one and offer it, you can get a percentage of that revenue too.
4. Add the “hire me” page on your site
If you have a new blog or website, it can be a perfect place to feature your freelancing services. Show samples of previous work this will help increase your chances of getting hired and thus make money.
I’ve shown you how I used “ads for my website to earn money”. With the tips above, I’m certain you can also make money from your website.
