How to Make Money from your website
1. Offering Advertisement Spaces
There is a lot of money to be made by offering Advertisement space on your blog, but be careful not to clog up your blog with too much of advertisement because visitors do not like such; it gives a bad user experience.
The idea of offering advertisement spaces is that, you give your blog out freely to advertisers to show your blog users what they offer, at a cost. They sure will pay you for this. But the issue is that, getting advertisers is not easy especially for small and developing blogs. It would have been easy if your blog is super popular.
But luckily, this issue has been dealt with. There are companies that help you search for advertisers and offer them advertising spaces on your blog. One very popular company is Google Adsense. If you have seen advertisements on websites, then it is most likely through Google Adsense.Other companies include Infolinks, Taboola, Revcontent, Mgid, Propeller ads and so on. The goal of this companies is to link advertisers with blogs willing to advertise. Of all, Google Adsense is the most used because it is the most trusted, it pays higher and also, it is owned by Google itself.
2. Affiliate Marketing
marketing is the next popular method of making money through a website. Big websites use this to make money because of user experience.
Affiliate marketing means liaising with a company to market their products, and then receiving a percentage from every sale. That’s how simple the idea it. You simply find products from company and market such products; for every sale, you receive a percentage as an income. It is not as hard as you think it is. If you are a good marketer and can convince people to buy a product from your website, then this is the right deal for you.
There are many companies that offer this opportunity. The most popular is Amazon, the biggest ecommerce website in the world. As a matter of fact, a large percentage of sales and income the company gets is from partnering with affiliates. You too can become an affiliate, not only to bless the pocket of the company, but your pocket.
Other affiliate companies include Jumia, Konga, ShareASale etc.
3. Paid Membership
Not many sites offer this, but yet, the little that offer this with excellence, are making a lot of money. Imagine people could pay before they get a professional service from you.
Paid Membership is a system in which a website limits the number of resources ordinary visitors can access, but provides this service for free to registered members without limits. Most times, the registered members would have paid a sum of money to become bonafide members and get access to such materials.
This kind of thing works well for online tutorials and some other field where resources are only made available to exclusive members at an affordable cost.
Whatever way you want to employ to make money off your site, make sure you offer quality content as Content is King. Nobody will pay for a service that wastes their money.
