Yes, hopefully this article will help you to pick a method to make you rich. You can select any option that’s suits you and subject to website niche.

Let’s read about several ways and guidelines to monetize your website.

  1. Become an Affiliate

Affiliate was the first way that I heard to monetize your website and earn good commission by promoting some products of companies. It don’t need very hard work and investment of time and money, but it needs a strong marketing skills to force visitors to bring money.

Affiliate is most popular way of make money online scheme since 1998, where you can earn by product / Services promotion and referral process. Affiliate Marketing is very simple and transparent way of earning money and provides a model to earn faster than Google Adsense program.

It is quite simple process without investment of money because almost all affiliate marketing programs are free to join. You can join popular affiliate programs like Commission Junction, ClickBank, ShareASale, Amazon, BlueHost. They all have more than million products that you can promote on your blog or website.

Before joining any affiliate programs your blog should be SEO optimized and get ranked to Google, Bing, Yahoo search engines. Affiliate depends on traffic, so you must know how to increase website traffic ?

  1. Join Google Adsense

Adsense is your revenue program, which follows PPC marketing and shows ads on your website according to search and interests. While any visitor clicks on ad, then you get paid for this. It is slow and time consuming process and it needs to invest time and money.

The amount, you earn from Adsense depends on amount of traffic and their interests that you receive to your website. Mostly Google allowed putting max 3 ads on your website or blog, only if It goes through Adsense guidelines.

You are not making good money if your website have low traffic or low paying niche. Adsense is great program form additional income, but it is not stable like Affiliate Marketing or selling your own products.

  1. Work as a Freelancer

If you are a good writer, programmer, web developer and designer, businessman or promoter than you can join Freelancer platforms to earn very good money. Many of people are making thousand dollars monthly by selling services to companies, organizations or to individuals.

Personally I’ll suggest Elance, which is the best and wisest platform for remote work. There are more popular platforms oDesk, Freelancer, Fiverr and PeoplePerHour. You can pick any of them to sell your services online wither onsite or remotely.

  1. Sell your own products

It is most adaptive method to make money and long term income. If you are a blogger than you can write eBooks and sell online or also can attach it to newsletter box. Most of developers think it is best way to earn money, they build website or software and sell them on reliable cost.

It allows you to control earning, profit and selling activities. But It is too hard for an individual because he can’t maintain development, customers, marketing, selling activities and payments. Selling your own products has a lot of work but it gives you flexibility for income and you can make long term income.

  1. Ask for donation

It is very uncommon way to get some money from visitors either you are asking for a help campaign or to fill own pocket. Less than 3% bloggers ask to visitors to donate some money that enable to readers to send little amount to blogger to encourage him to keep blogging.

Asking for donation is very simple model of earning where readers can gift little money to blogger. Few bloggers had done this before, while some of them was running a social campaign or some for self.

Donation will only work when you have a large number of visitors and loyal readers. You can’t force them to donate or give some money as a gift because you provide some useful stuff at a single place.

If you have ever asked or receive donation, kindly write here your story in comments below. I would love to hear from you.
