How to Monetize or profit from a website

by Chidi

I just want to talk about the numerous ways to profit from a website. Most newbie are still baffled by the ideas of generating a real income from an online business.


When you tell them the benefits of creating a source of passive income on the internet the first question they always ask is 'so how do you get the money?' People do not yet trust the idea of online transaction they go with the slogan "seeing is believing" especially in Africa Where I come from.

So before you convince them to create their own Online Business you will need to show them the physical cash you have been able to make or at least take them through the entire process of generating money from the internet.

I started this thread by talking about online businesses, the good, the bad and how almost anybody can create real money making online business even without prior knowledge of HTML or all the website terminologies. If you want to learn more about creating a website you are free to download our Free Online Business Ebook provided you will not violate the rights.

I want to major specifically on how to profit from a website, the numerous ways you can make money from a website. Are you thinking of owning a website and wondering about the best way to create an income generating website, are you tired of all 'dem get rich quick schemes?
Learn more here about the The Good and Bad Online Businesses and how not to fall a victim to the many internet scams.

How To monetize A Website


Have you created a gigantic website that gets thousands of visitors in a day? It is advisable to only think about monetizing a website when you start getting at least a hundred visitors a day.

The first and most popular way to profit from a website is to put up google adsense. You would find google adsense on most websites. To enable adsense on your website you need to sign up with gmail and then go from there.

After signing up and being accepted, google start placing related ads on your website and you get paid for that, for more details sign up with google adsense.

Create Your Own Product


I created my first eBook for my other site in August 2011; the eBook is sold for $27.5 and converts really well. Creating your own product is one of the numerous ways to

monetize a website. The process of creating an eBook is very simple, almost anybody can do it.
You can also create an illustrative or informative video and sell it on your site, the
idea is that you can sell anything you think would appeal to your visitors.

Once you start getting lots of visitors in a day, some of them will turn out as really loyal
customers that would buy any product you put for sell. That is one of the benefits of creating a niche focused website, you can sell virtually anything that you think would appeal to your numerous visitors and they would buy them.

The last way to monetize your website is to sell it. For me I wouldn't ever likely sell any of my sites, they have the potential to make more than any amount I could consider selling them.

Sell Your Site


Yes, sell your site. An option I wouldn't likely consider but a sure way to generate quick cash. Selling your website is one of the numerous ways to profit from a website. I know a friend that sold a site for about sixty five thousand dollars after several years of real work.

There are many ways to sell a site, if you build your site with 'Site Build It' you can sell your site in the forum but I wouldn't advise you to ever sell a good site except you really needed to sell it
