Making money from your website may seem impossible and extremely complicated. But don’t be fooled, making money from your website could never be easier. Not only can you make money from your website, but we thought of EIGHT ways you can even do so! So please sit down, buckle up, and get ready to learn how to make some extra cash.
Alright now what do I mean by “accessibility to you”. Well I’m not saying to put your phone number out on the internet, but if you make yourself available to your customers then you will have more people reaching out. The more people who are reaching out for your help or services on your business email means more business, therefore making you more money. By putting your business email down for reference on your website, you are allowing people to reach out for you for more help. By providing a direct email to you makes you seem more personable, and they will be more likely to ask for your help. This help can be a service you can then charge them. For instance if you have a website on graphic design, then by having your email accessible on your website will allow potential customers to contact you in a more direct way. This direct communication would make your business seem more personable and therefore people are more likely to go with your business for their needs.
Now if you haven’t read our latest blog on affiliate links then you’re seriously missing out. But in essence, you can make money on your website by providing affiliate links. Our favorite affiliate program is Amazon affiliate links because they give a commission every single time someone is brought to the Amazon website through your link. Don’t believe us? Watch our youtube video “how to make money through amazon affiliate links” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8NaKKmhzG4&t=379s . We also wrote a great blog going over this exact information so you could also check that out. However you can implement affiliate links into your website by placing images on your website with an affiliate link attached so that every time someone clicks on that photo they are brought to the exact product on amazon.
Creating your own product may seem like something that is way beyond your abilities. However, you can achieve this by taking baby steps. Look at the questions people are asking you. Look at where your customers are always struggling. If the majority of your customers are struggling in a similar way, or have the same questions then produce a product that will address those areas. Create an ebook, or lesson plan that can be sold to your customers, and their needs will also be met. The great thing about products is that you make it once, and it makes you money over and over again.
Tip Jar. Buy me a coffee. PayPal button. These are allllllll donation options that you can implement into your website that can make you money. You implement these into your website and your loyal customers can donate money to you. It’s almost like a tip jar at a restaurant. You appreciate the services these people are giving you and you leave a tip. However, you would have no ability to tip these people unless you had availability to the tip jar. So make it available to your users and they might surprise you and leave you a little bonus.
Brand deals are a great, and popular way people are making money from their website. How it works is that a brand reaches out to you wanting to collaborate. Typically they will send you something to review or include into your website or video and in return they will pay you. This is a great way to earn a little cash, and typically you get to keep the item that they send you. So really it’s a win, win.
Monetization is the key word. You can get monetized through your YouTube channel, and you can get monetized through your website. What monetization means is that you have a net income of viewers onto your page that allows you to sign up for advertisements to be shown. You will want there to be a steady stream on viewers on your website before you set the monetization up because advertisers don’t want to put their ad where it won’t be seen. The more people visiting your website and seeing the ads, means more money into your pocket. Remember advertisers won’t pay you unless their ad is actually being seen.
Seems basic right? By building your platform you are emphasizing your credibility. The more credible you seem, the more money you can make from your website. To break it down, by building your platform you are building your reputation. You will be more well known inside your industry, and this means that your business name will start to travel. As more people hear about your business and the services that you provide, the more customers you will have. Therefore making you more money.
Blogs attract people to your website. It’s that simple. the more blogs you write that are informative and pertain to your business the more users visiting your website you will have. These users when visiting your website can earn you money by viewing the ads on your website, by clicking on the affiliate links, and by then purchasing products or services. You need to use blogs like a funnel that draw these users to the rest of your business. Because if someone stumbled upon your blog while looking for business help, and found that you provided services doing just that, then they will be more likely to purchase your services.
