If you're interested in knowing how to generate an online income or make money with a website or blog, you're not alone. Like you, many people are looking at online options to earn extra money, passive income, active income, additional income, or part-time income.
Keeping with the subject, it is a great effort if you already have a website with a sizable following or volume of traffic.
Just a quick reminder that SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is one such marketing channel that helps in constantly bringing free or natural or organic traffic to a website or blog and SEO should never be ignored if you are really serious to earn income from your blog or website.
[Income from Blogging] - 44 Ways to Make Money:
If you already have huge traffic or audience base or planning to grow your blog or website, then below are the 44 different ways that you might explore to earn online income (making money) from your Website or Blog:
PAY-PER-CLICK (PPC) AD NETWORKS:
Pay Per Click (PPC) ad networks will pay you when someone visits your website and clicks on an ad, regardless of whether or not they make any purchase. This is an excellent approach to begin earning money from your website online.
You need to simply sign up and wait to be accepted or for ad network approval for your website or blog, after which you need to copy and paste a small piece of software code onto your website to make it work.
These are advertising networks, such as Google Adsense you might have heard many times in the past, that will display ads based on the content of your website/blog. These forms of networks will typically pay you per click basis.
There are probably many more than those listed here, and I recommend that you conduct your own research while using these sites based on your website or blog niche:
1. GOOGLE ADSENSE
2. MEDIA. NET
4. VIBRANT MEDIA
CPM ADVERTISING NETWORKS:
In this case, these ad networks rather than paying on a per-click basis, they will pay on a per-view basis (usually a certain amount based on 1000 pageviews).
Most of these ad networks require that your website or blog should have a large number of visitors or traffic or audience base to be approved in their network as part of their scrutiny of the application.
So, suppose you have a website or a blog that is already generating a huge volume of traffic or audiences or visitors. In that case, you might explore monetizing such traffic base through some of the below CPM networks which are generally recommended by many pro-marketers and bloggers:
7. EZOIC ADS
9. CONVERSANT MEDIA
11. ADTHRIVE MEDIA
16. DIGITAL REMEDY
17. TRIBAL FUSION
CPA (COST PER ACQUISITION) NETWORKS:
In this case, the CPA networks will pay a fixed amount based on an action taken by the visitors or audiences after visiting the advertiser's site (for example an email/contact number submission through forms or any other desired information).
Many of the below affiliate marketing networks listed offer both affiliate commissions (certain fixed percentage commissions per sale) and CPA opportunities (fixed percentage commissions per action or lead details submission).
In reality, these are just a few that pro-marketers/bloggers who have already pioneered the use of such platforms have advocated/recommend to explore:
24. ADSCEND MEDIA
25. GLOBALWIDE MEDIA
In this case, an affiliate network pays out a fixed amount or a fixed percentage of commissions per every sale that occurred by an affiliate link or referral link on the total sale amount.
When someone clicks on your affiliate link and buys something after they follow for a certain period (cookie period) or maybe at the instant time, you earn commissions as an affiliate marketer on each sale.
Here are some of the trending affiliate networks which are generally recommended or suggested by pro-affiliate marketers or bloggers:
26. AMAZON ASSOCIATES - user and beginner-friendly
27. COMMISSION JUNCTION
28. CLICKBANK - user and beginner-friendly
29. DIGISTORE24 - user and beginner-friendly
32. WARRIOR PLUS
35. EBAY PARTNER NETWORK
CREATE YOUR OWN PRODUCTS:
Your own products will usually be the most successful strategy to monetize your site or blog. Here are the common options which you can explore:
38. Create E-Video Course or E-Course and sell
39. Create E-Book and sell
40. Create Paid Community/Forum/Membership or sell templates
41. Create Software and sell
42. SPONSORED POSTS:
This is a common way for bloggers to earn some money based on mutual terms.
To simplify to understand, the business brands will request or approach bloggers to publish content that either reviews or advertises their product in some way and they will pay some amount for each post based on the traffic or audience or visitors to the site or blog. This may vary from business to business.
43. SELL YOUR SKILLS:
In this instance, whether as a consultant, freelancer, or professional, you might look into selling your unique skills to the visitors of your website. Become an expert by serving their requirements.
44. SELL YOUR SITE:
In this case, even if you never monetize your site, you might sell it for a profit! There is value in increasing your website's traffic or having a larger audience base. You might sell for a lot if the traffic is strong enough to your website or blog.
For example, MOTION INVEST is one platform that provides an opportunity to buy and sell such websites. [Here is an 11 factors checklist for purchasing a niche website]
To conclude and overall, there are definitely a lot more ways or methods to earn online income or make money online with a website or blog, but above are the ways or methods one can think of for a better start!
You can also explore other ad networks or affiliate programs if you wish so and grabbing such opportunities from time to time is always a welcome move provided due diligence is undertaken.
I hope you've found this blog post useful and the amount of earnings you may generate from your blog posts or website in general, is mostly determined by your own marketing efforts from time to time.
