Affiliate Marketing - This is typically the best place to start when generating money from your website. Affiliate marketing is quick and easy. All you have to do is find products that you love that are relevant to your content and recommend them to your subscribers.
If your audiences resonate with the product, you can earn between 20-70% commission on each product sold using your unique affiliate link. For example, if the deal is 40% and you promote an e-book that costs $100, you’ll get $40 for referring the buyer and helping to sell a copy.
Best Reviews is a great example of using affiliate marketing through their website. It essentially captures realistic reviews and provides product recommendations using affiliate links.
You can visit websites like ShareASale or Commission Junction to find products to promote on your site. Remember, the products you choose should be relevant to your audience and something you would likely use yourself.
Google Ad words - This is a way for you to let other businesses run ads on your own website. Once you are approved for Google Adsense, you will have code embedded on your website that populated advertisements relevant to your content. You will get paid every single time someone clicks an ad on your site! How much you make per click can go up to about $5!

Selling digital products - You can maximize how much you earn per sell by owning your products directly. An e-book is a great example of a product you can sell on your website. The most important thing is to ensure that the products are of quality, designed effectively, and your site has the capacity to handle online payments. This is where having a persuasive landing page comes in handy. Effective copy will help you gain a strong conversion rate.
