Top 4 Ways to Make Money with Your Website
We all know how important it is to get web traffic for your website or blog and the fact that it will help your site rank well on Google Search Pages. But, why not monetize your site with the intention to make money out of your website traffic.
If your answer is yes, then below are my top 3 recommendations to make money with your Website Traffic –
The Google AdSense Formula
This is just my personal intake, if you have a nice content rich and attractive website luring steady visitors on a daily basis, then you should seriously consider running Google AdSense ads in your website or blog. Creating a website is easy and you can start off free using the WordPress platform which offers free website building.
To let you know a bit about Google AdSense, it is a program run by Google that allows publishers in Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to your site content and target audience.
The Google AdSense process works something like this, each time a visitor clicks on a banner advertisement displayed on your site, you will receive a fraction of the commission per visitor click.
The sky is the limit and you could be making a steady source of income with just Google AdSense only.
The Good Old Affiliate Marketing Formula
Affiliate marketing is nothing but a cooperative effort between a merchant and it’s affiliate. Affiliate marketing has proved to be cost-efficient, measurable method of delivering long-term results. Affiliate marketing is truly the way forward when it comes to making money online on your site with good steady traffic and research points to this method of marketing will be the next industry trend.
For an Affiliate Marketer like me, it’s very crucial for me to create a Buyer Persona. Buyer Persona is a semi-finished representation of your ideal customer based on market research and providing real data about your existing customer. Buyer Persona helps you to humanize your marketing and minimize your advertisement cost.
Two most impt elements to take into account are –
- Who your customer is?
- What problems are you solving?
Below are a few top affiliate networks, namely –
- Commission Junction
- Market Health
These are a few that I have used myself and they work great!
Building a List
Another great way to make money with website traffic is to build a list, by capturing your visitors email addresses. By doing this it allows you to keep in contact with your visitors. By giving them value and solutions to their problems you become the person to go to in this field.
The easiest way to capture an email from a visitor is by giving them something in return for their email address. In this case I put together a small e-book about colic and different ways to ease colic. They got the e-book for free by leaving their email address. This way I could continue staying in contact with the visitor.
Personally, I like to use MailChimp for collecting all my leads and it’s FREE to use. MailChimp allows you to store in 2000 leads for FREE in its mailing list and it is easy to use and keeps track of all your emails, follow up emails and automated email legacy follow up series.
Be Your Own Product Creator
If you are a newbie in the field of Internet Marketing, I would suggest you to start off with Affiliate Marketing. It’s by far the simplest and effortless way of making money off the web. Please don’t get me wrong but creating your own product is a great way to make money and it should be a long term goal but getting some experience first will help and benefit you.
