Companies will pay you fix price per week or per month just to advertise their product on your website. You get a constant flow income if you can find enough advertisers for your website. This method is a reliable trick to make money in blog and websites.
Pay Per Click
This is one of the most popular monetization strategies in websites. Google Adsense, Chitika, Yahoo Publisher and BidVertiser are some companies that provide the Pay Per Click facilities. The ads are easy to integrate on your website. You just have to insert the code block to show where the ads will appear. Once the code is implanted service automatically inserts the relevant ads according to your content. However you can also determine the type of ads that appear on your site and have full control over it. Ads comes in various forms like banners, sidebar text, links, in-text lines, full page ad, pop-up and pops under. They can be placed by plugin, hand-coding, shortcodes and more.
Sponsored Posts and product reviews:
There are number of companies and online services that will pay you for writing sponsored posts and reviews about their product. This works even better if your website is well established. You can directly get in touch with the advertisers or publish a notice informing that you are willing to accept sponsored posts. You usually write sponsored posts yourself or publish a pre-written review provided by product owners.
If your website is really famous you can charge some fee with the website owner for keeping an outgoing link to their site from your website. A link from a famous website can boost Search engine ranking as well as increase traffic in many start up websites. Many website owners will be ready to pay you just to keep their links in your website. But there is a serious drawback of this whole process. Selling links is illegal according to Google. So you cannot advertise about this service. You cannot openly use this method because if words reached to the Google about this business your website can be penalized. So charge money for outgoing links at your own risk.
Creating and sell products
If your website or blogs gets a great number of viewers regularly then it would be a great idea to create products and sell them. You can start an online store or eCommerce in your website. You can sell digital products like eBook, music, film, graphics, web templates, plugin, software and so on. Physical products with delivery system can also be used for sell.
