How To Earn A Living From Your Website Or Blog


If you currently spend time maintaining a website or blog as a hobby, you might be missing out on a number of lucrative money making opportunities. While you might have started your online portal for fun, it seems silly not to try to cash in if you’re getting lots of attention from a well targeted audience. With that in mind, this article today will highlight a number of different ways in which your website can be monetised. You will have already heard of them no doubt, but hopefully this will refresh your memory, and perhaps provide some new information that could make you see how lucrative your site can be.

Don’t get me wrong, this is by no means an extensive list, and there are obviously other ways of going about things, but the techniques and methods I’m about to list are certainly the most popular, so you can bet they’re also the most reliable ones out there. Considering that, take a quick read through all the information below, and hopefully it will encourage you to seize every opportunity and start making money today…

Affiliate Marketing

Earning a living from affiliate marketing may not be as easy as it once was, but thanks to specialised networks, it’s still more than possible. Through the use of performance marketing, retailers and product makers can place ads on your site and will pay money to you for impressions, clicks, and all other kinds of action. Also, you can earn money as commission from sales made through clicks, and although the percentage you receive is generally low, so long as you have enough traffic, you should be able to earn a good wage.


Whether you use advertising services to place banners on your website, or you try to attract advertisers privately, there’s a lot of money to be made through this endeavour. It’s safe to assume that if you have more than one million visitors to your site every couple of weeks, you’ll be making thousands in revenue. Just remember to keep on top of all SEO efforts to ensure you continue to achieve the same level of visits.

Sponsored Posts

Presuming you don’t mind posting other people’s work to your site, there are plenty of marketing companies who’d be happy to pay you for high quality links. While you need to be careful when doing this, it can create a lucrative income stream that you definitely don’t want to overlook. Sometimes arrangements can be made where marketers will agree to post a certain amount of articles for a bulk price, and this is the best way to go.

Sell eBooks

Whatever your website or blog is about, selling relevant eBooks for a small fee could help you to turn your traffic into cold hard cash. You probably want to write them yourself, or ensure they’re not available anywhere else, but you can also sell other people’s work with permission, if you feel your audience would be interested.

After reading through this post, you should now understand about some of the simplest things you can do to start earning money from your website or blog this year. It’s best to do some more research, but if you want my advice? You need to get started ASAP. Opportunities like this might not be around forever.

See you next time!
