How to Earn Money From Your Website


Text Advertisements 
Text advertisements are one of the most common ways of making money with a website. Text advertisements are nothing but ‘short text ads’ that get automatically displayed on a page of a website. The distribution of the ad on the website will be based on the context of its content.
 
Video Advertisements 
Video advertisements are improvised versions of text advertisements. You more often than not would have come across them in quite a number of websites. Video advertisements are incorporated into websites in the form of ‘short video ads’. These advertisements come in two options. They either are auto-played or will need to be clicked on to be played.
 
In-Content Advertisements 
Almost every website has content and in-content advertisements are ads that are linked to ‘keywords’ that exist within the content. In-content ads are a great way of increasing traffic to your website.
 
Jobs Board And Paid Reviews 
‘Jobs board’ refers to the act of embedding paid job listings on pages of your website. Paid reviews, on the other hand, refers to the process of a company charging another company or individuals for books, services or products reviewed.
 
Sponsors 
For this, you may need to possess great negotiation skills. The idea of sponsorship can be put together when you charge for the whole or part of the sponsorship of your website. Standard operating procedures dictate that fixed price agreements between sponsors and websites should last for a fixed period of time.  
 
Listing Of Directories 
This one’s pretty simple. You can begin by creating a directory on your website and then go ahead to charge suppliers who are looking to be listed on your site. Alternatively, you can list all of the suppliers and simply charge for an enhanced listing.
 
Subscriptions 
The term subscription is just another name for a ‘great way of making money. If you are not aware of it, it might surprise you to know that a large number of websites make most of their money via subscriptions. People or users of services can be asked to subscribe to podcasts, archive materials, online courses and maybe even key content. To ensure that you do well with the subscriptions, you will have to make it a point to offer niche services as opposed to offering run-of-the-mill services or products.
 
Sales, Sales And More Sales 
With the boom in e-commerce, you can bring in the bucks by making your website a souk of sorts. Think on the lines of global e-business giants and get going. You can sell a host of things with the assistance of your website. From e-books and software to audio and video files, you can sell almost anything. In any case, it’s not what you sell that matters; it’s all about making sure that what you are selling actually does sell. For the success of whatever it is you plan on selling, focus on making the whole process of buying and selling friendly to all parties involved. You might also want to be a little aggressive and innovative with your marketing efforts.
