Affiliate marketing for your website

Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular (not to mention quickest) ways to make money from your website or blog.

You need to look at websites like Nerdwallet.com and Thisiswhyimbroke.com to see how it works. They managed to earn their income with affiliate marketing.

Start by finding a product you like and would recommend. Then on your website, you endorse the product and promote it to your website visitors and email subscribers. If the product or service resonates with these people, they’ll click on your affiliate linkpurchasing the product (while you get a split of the sale price).

The commission might be anywhere from 30% of the product or service price, up to as high as 70%. For example, if the split is 50% and you promote an e-book that costs $100, you’ll get $50 for simple referring the buyer.

Where can I find products to promote?

  • Commission junction – offers reliable products with on-time payments.
  • ShareASale – mostly clothes, accessories, and other offline goods.
  • Clickbank – high percentage payouts, but there’s a lack of GOOD products to promote.

 

Ad Networks

It needs careful inclusion of keywords into the written text, so Google might determine what ads to serve to your site.

Once you sign up, Google will place a simple code on your website that will identify the content of your site and start displaying relevant advertisements. For example, if your site is about pets (dogs & cats), Google AdSense will start showing your visitors ads for cat food, dog training, and more.

You get paid each time someone clicks on the ad. (Yes, it’s really that easy!)

Your cut might be anywhere from $0.50 to $5 per click. When your site has enough traffic, you can make hundreds (if not thousands of dollars) each month.

How to apply for Google Adsense?

  • Apply for AdSense – Before applying, make sure you keep up with their latest Terms Of Service. Google has very strict rules, so it’s hard to get (and stay) approved.
  • Check this source to see how you can monetize a website with Google AdSense
  • Check this to see how AdSenseflippers became an expert at generating income from AdSense ads

Google AdSense is decent for sites with less than 10k visitors. But once you have 10k sessions, we strongly suggest you look at Ezoic. This ad network can increase ad revenue per 1000 thousands uses 3-4 times as much as AdSense, if you can gather the traffic.

 

Sell Ad Space

You can get paid depending on how many visitors you get. Typically it’s quoted as a dollar amount per one thousand impressions (or CPM). You might see it as $5 CPM. If the website gets 100,000 visits a month, that ad price translates into $500 bucks.
