In this ever-changing world, no one mode of income is permanent. Especially after COIVD-19, one can never keep all their eggs in one or even two baskets, and the best thing about websites is that they keep working for you. Today, you can have a website for literally anything. I know a friend who joined the Amazon affiliate programme, made a new website, and posted all the hot-selling products on it. Now he makes money not only on each sale but also through the ads that are displayed on it. Your income can go up to about $3000 per month, whereas an average profitable website can earn about $1000 in a few months.
There are plenty of methods you can choose from to monetise your website.
These are all opportunities for you to earn money and either make a living or get an additional income from your website. Keep reading to see how you can effectively do this.
Before you start, remember that you don’t need to be good at something to start a website; there is a website for everything, so just choose what you like to talk about or join any affiliate programme and post your products there because the method works best when you have good quality content. With careful inclusion of SEO keywords written into the text of your website, it makes it easy for Google to determine what ads to serve to your site.
It is imperative that you match the topic of your articles or content with the displayed ads because the ads should address to those who are interested in viewing your site, otherwise they won’t click on the ads, and no profit will follow.
Important: Google AdSense is decent for sites with fewer than 10,000 visitors. But once you have outgrown this number, you can also look at EZOIC. This ad network can increase your ad revenue per thousand users, and you can make 3–4 times as much as AdSense, but only if you can gather the traffic, which is why it is best to start with Google AdSense.
People who visit your website come to find your content, not to see ads or get prompted with a million different offers.
If you want more control over your ads, you can try Repixel, which pays you for every visitor.
Repixeling is a form of online advertising where non-competitive companies or brands from the same industry target visitors of each other’s websites. For example, if you run an eating blog, an online store that sells food times, or a food app looking to acquire downloads, they would likely be very interested in tagging your visitors so that they can serve Facebook or Instagram Ads to them later. The best thing is that you can approve or deny any advertiser that you don’t want to work with, and you can also set your own price in the form of a CPM (cost per thousand page views). Once the connection between blogger and advertiser is formed, the blogger gets paid for every 1000 page views.
My personal favourite feature is — Repixel is completely invisible to the user so it doesn’t take away from the user experience.
