5 Ways to Make Money with Your Blog or Website

how to make money with your blog

Here are a few ways for you to make a little pocket change from content on your website.

In the beginning if you have low traffic to your site you will not make a ton of money, however as traffic to your site grows – – so the potential to make more money.

Amazon Affiliate Program

Amazon affiliates have the potential to earn up to 15% in referrals by advertising Amazon products. Products can be advertised by various widgets and stores that Amazon offers or by linking items in your site back to the Amazon site. For example you can hyperlink the name of a song, movie or even a video game to Amazon. If someone purchases the item, you make a profit. The more referrals that are into sales, the greater the potential to earn a bigger percentage.

Commission Junction

Get paid for placing ads from Commission Junction advertisers (e.g., QVC, Groupn, Fandango, Priceline and more) on your website. Each advertiser pays different percentages. Ads come in a variety of sizes as well as text links.

Google AdSense

Allows you to place banner and text ads on your site. The ads change with the content on your page as well as the location of the reader. This works well because you just set and forget about the ads, because they are always changing.
