Thanks to the advances of computers and computer software, creating your very own website has never before been easier. If you do not know how to begin building a website then you can check out the review of my recommended online school for budding E-ntrepreneurs and web designers, Wealthy Affiliate.
This small blog post will be about the different ways that you can generate income online with your website and how you can go about enacting those methods. Keep in mind that there are many different ways to make money online and many more new ways being discovered just about everyday, this article will just be some of my suggested methods.
Create A Blog And Sell Your Services
One great way to make some extra scratch(money) online is to create a blog on your site dedicated to your niche, and offer some form of service to your readers. As an example, you could create a website talking about SEO and internet marketing like myself, start a blog offering insightful information to your readers and start offering SEO evaluations of their website and content for money, if you feel confident that is.
Or maybe you are an artist, you could start a blog about 3D art and painting or sketching, then give your contact info within your content to offer to do commissions for your readers! If you were dedicated enough, you could create an authoritative enough website to receive multiple requests for your services a day, whatever your niche/services are.
I know of many niche artists who make a living just selling commissioned artwork online to patrons, so trust me when I say there is potential here in this method, as long as you have something worthwhile to offer and a way to extend it to enough people online in a professional way, you will make money.
Email marketing is considered another power method when talking about how to make money off of a website, certainly one that should not be overlooked.
What you do is set up a button on the front page of your website or wherever, offering the chance to sign up for your email list, and when you get their email, you can send them all sorts of monetized emails, offers and promotions that can make you money.
One good method of getting those who visit your site to sign up for your list is to download a popup plugin to your website so you can add a creative, non intrusive popup to your pages that will engage your readers with a call to action to sign up for your email list. These in-page popups are a great way to make a call to action for your visitors to sign up and I would highly suggest considering it if you decide to start your own mailing list.
If you want to get your visitors emails then most will need more than just a call to action by you to sign up, you have to offer them something worthwhile for them.
You can offer all sorts of things really, it doesn’t have to be all that special or expensive or time consuming on your part, it could be something rather simple but still useful or enjoyable. You could offer a free simple commission for anyone who signs up if you have an art blog, maybe offer a small list of keywords that have low competition and update it every once in awhile.
It’s a job all in itself getting people to sign up for your email list, but if you can do it, you will have access to thousands of potential buyers for whatever products or services you send their way, just as long as whatever you send is legit.
Review & Promote Products
Another big way to make money online with your website is to create content reviewing and promoting various services and products online!
Many different online services and products offer their own affiliate program, each varying in payment, but I can tell you that there truly is a lot of money to be made in this type of content if you pull it off right. As an example, my website offers some reviews of tools & education programs aimed at those trying to make money online, much like you!
I will go over all the major offerings of one product or service and always make sure to link to said product or service, but what a lot of people don’t know or think about is normally that link is an affiliate link that tells the company that offers the product/service that I sent you to them, and I get a nice commission if you or anyone else decides to buy anything, simple right? Well it’s not just simple, it’s the beginning of a true lifestyle if that makes sense.
Your reviews don’t have to be long or overly drawn out, just go over the facts that you know of the product in question, and make sure to take the time to read through others reviews to get an idea of the general reception of the product or service, and make sure to mention how people who have paid for the product or service feel about it in highsight.
Keep in mind your reviews don’t necessarily have to be positive or negative either, just focus on trying to get your affiliate links hooked up with your reviews so no matter what you say about the product whether it’s positive or negative, you will still make money if they buy it.
Look I said it once and I am going to tell you it again, there are many, many, many different ways to make money online, a lot positive and obviously a lot not positive, but it all exists.
These 3 examples I used are just three that I feel are big, profitable methods to make money, the real extent of how you make your living online is limited by your imagination, and that’s the most important thing to keep in mind out of everything I have said here.
