In our first part of this topic, we have learned about Affiliate Marketing, Google AdSense, Sell Advertising Space, Sell Your Own Digital Product, and about Sell Sponsored Posts. These options can make money from a website. In this blog, we can learn more ways to earn more money from a website.
Selling your products and services:
You will be surprised to know that you can earn money by selling your products and services. You can sell from a pin to a real estate from your website. You can also offer services from window cleaning to professional consultancy. For providing your services or product, you do not need an e-commerce website. It is my personal experience that nowadays people are coming to me for consultation. They ask me for help with social media, online marketing, and writing. You do not need to go anywhere.

Accepting donations can be a more effective way of making money if you have a strong engaged community. Although it is not a fast way to earn money but it can help you cover expenses initially and you might want to be spending this donation on a good web hosting, new product creation, research, and all of the other costs to maintain a healthy, active blog. If your visitors buy into your content, it makes sense that some will be willing to show their appreciation for your work via a donation.
Wikipedia is the biggest example. It is a non-profit site that accepts donations. Internet Archive (web.archive.org) also makes a lot of money from donations.
Lead Collection and Generation:
Another way to make money from a website is by collecting leads and generating leads. If you have traffic on your website, make sure you’re collecting leads that someone will actually pay for. On the other side, lead generation is the process of putting potential customers in touch with companies who may be of benefit to them. It’s different from affiliate marketing, in that you’re not trying to get people to buy a specific product.
For example, if you have a teaching website, your reader’s information (name, email address or phone number) would be of great value to different online schools who’re looking to sell their courses to eager, proactive students.
Build a List of Email:
From the beginning of your website, make a habit to build a list of emails of your valued readers. It is a long term strategy which builds a long term relation with your readers. With these relations, you will be benefited directly or indirectly in a longer run. Offering great information or free help could an option.
Review Products as an Affiliate:
Your review on anything from software, to mobile, bikes, cars, hotels, places, food, can be a source of income. Your reader and your followers consider your reviews. It also makes many people to understand about that product.
Set up an e-commerce site:
You can make a corner of your e-commerce site on your website. It is very easy to demonstrate and show your products to your online community. You could even build up a social media group (Facebook group, WhatsApp group, Twitter, etc.) and use your influence there to sell and promote products.
These are the options available to anyone to earn money from a website but you need to work hard from the beginning because it is not a day or a week or a month practice. As early as you start your working, you will get better results as the internet continues to grow. Make sure you grow your website’s popularity also and maintain the quality as well.
