7 Ways to Make Money With Your Website – Starting With Ad Dollars
Reading along, you will learn six methods on how to find targeted advertisers and affiliate partners that you can work with.
1. Become an Amazon affiliate
Amazon has the best and most popular affiliate program. The reason it’s so popular is its ease of use, where you can sign up and start adding widgets to your site. This means that you can start earning in no time. Another great thing about Amazon is also that they will also pay you even if the person buys something else on the website. However, the commissions are considered quite low as compared with the other affiliate programs.
2. Sign up with Google AdSense
Google AdSense is so simple to sign up and start making money. You can immediately begin to promoting Google Ads on your site with no trouble at all. If you don’t like doing the groundwork looking for networks or potential advertisers, then this is for you.
Adsense is the simplest way to begin advertising: display text or image ads in any shape, color, or size that you want. However, smaller niches might not get as much traffic as compared to sites like Amazon.
3. Join an Affiliate Program
Joining an affiliate program is the most profitable method. Essentially, you’re promoting other people’s products, and you receive a commission from each time someone purchases the item you’re promoting with your affiliate link.
You can scout the market for programs that payout well, which is between 20% to 30% commissions. Otherwise, you might take a while to see some income.
You can do your research on specific products that are hot-selling on the market at the time and sell them. Type it into Google, for example: “Item name + Affiliate program.”
4. Approach Advertisers directly
It could be challenging to find advertisers to work with. If your blog is gaining the right amount of traffic, you usually won’t face many problems.
You can then advertise these ads on your homepage, a pop-up, or anywhere you see fit.
5. Join an Ad network
It can be frustrating chasing after advertisers who keep rejecting you. This is why you should join an ad network that will connect advertisers with bloggers.
Once you don’t have to worry about this aspect, you can focus on curating great content as your readers deserve.
Networks such as BlogDash, ProperllorAds and PopAds are great.
6. Join an Affiliate network
If you’re looking for variety in affiliate programs then an affiliate network will open up many doors for you. Instead of signup for them one by one, an affiliate network will give you access to many of them at once. You might still need to get approval for some specific programs but its usually no hassle.
You can check out Savage Affiliates, MaxBounty, and ClickBank as they are some of the bigger networks in the market.
