Website Monetization Ideas: In the beginning, I created websites for a hobby. It helped me relax and unwind (design and creation lowered my stress levels). I didn’t realize at the time that websites could become revenue streams.
Website Monetization Ideas
As I learned more about website monetization, I realized there were multiply revenue sources available to generate income from websites.
Once you realize you can generate income from your websites, website creation takes on a whole new perspective. I love the challenge of creating a great website that is visitor friendly and generates incomes.
There are some revenue sources for generating income from your websites. I want to focus mainly on three of those revenue sources.
1. Google Adsense
Google Adsense is a very simple way to generate income from your website traffic. It is also easy to implement and it can become one of your top revenue sources.
What is Google Adsense? Google (www.google.com) is a Search Engine that allows website owners to advertise on their search results page. These advertisements are called Google Adwords.
When you display these ads on your website, you can earn a share of the revenue generated. In many ways, you are helping Google advertise and they want to reward you for this by paying you a percentage of what they earn.
Where do I start? First, you need to have a website with twenty or so web pages that generates traffic. Second, you need to register with Google Adsense. Please note that registering with Google Adsense is FREE.
Third, place Google Ads on your web pages. It is absolutely essential that you place google ads in strategic positions on your web page. Google Adsense will help you in this process – read the information.
Fourth, don’t click on your own ads. If you do, your account will be closed and you will lose this great revenue source.
Fifth, create a Google Adsense Search Bar. This allows your website visitors to search from your website.
How To Increase Google Adsense Revenue? The formula is reasonably simply: Traffic = Revenue. The more traffic to your website, the more revenue you make from your website. Therefore, you need to create your website for Adsense. That requires you to understand the processes involved in creating websites for Adsense.
Spend some time reading information about Google Adsense. You can start by reading the information that Google supplies when you register with them. I find it most amuzing that most people who register for Google Adsense do not read the information.
By way of note, Google Adsense is NOT a get-rich-quick-scheme. It takes work and time to drive traffic to your website – traffic equals revenue.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Selling a product is another way to generate income from your website traffic. You can sell your own hard goods (storefront), your own digital goods (eg. ebooks, software, manuals, programs, etc. etc) or you can sell products belonging to other people (called affiliate marketing).
What is Affiliate Marketing? Affiliate Marketing involves you selling someone else’s product on your website and you receive a commission for the sale. www.clickbank.com is one place where you can find products to sell. When you sell these products, you can receive up to 75% commission for the sale.
