Keep in mind that the strategies listed below range from easy and passive, to ones that require a TON of on-going work (so make sure you pick something that suits your site and lifestyle preferences).
It has to come from your truth, which should be easy… there is nothing easier than being me. It is freakin hard to be like someone else. Trust, growing up abused and neglected, you ALWAYS want to be someone else. LOL
My two favourites are SEO & Adwords, but as you might know – they’re not cheap. I’m actually in a middle of writing a new article on ways to generate more free traffic to your website, but in the meantime you could try “Media Buys”. Just google it – it’s basically buying banner space from other relevant sites.
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, your site is about pets (dogs & cats), Google AdSense will start showing your visitors ads for cat food, dog training and more.
Three years later and this is still popping up. Great ideas for those who are having a bit of a block as a website creator trying to go the monetizing route. I’ve always used Google Adsense and have been toying with the idea of doing affiliate marketing. I’ve signed up for click bank and shareasale for almost two years now but never utilize it. I guess I can try it out and see where that goes.
Revenue sharing sites pay contributors a portion of revenue the site generate. Usually, this is from ad earnings but some sites offer the opportunity to make affiliate sales. The revenue you’ll earn likely depends on how many page views your content receives. It’s a good idea to promote your content on social media to get as many visitors as you can.
Don’t forget about the possibility of affiliate sales on YouTube. Channels that focus on product reviews are perfect platforms for affiliate marketing. In fact, some people make all of their online income through affiliate sales.
For me, affiliate marketing is one of the ways to make money online without a website. However If you want to be an affiliate marketer you should be knowledgeable in building your own website to make the most of being affiliate marketer.
When it comes to selling on Etsy, there’s no hard and fast rule as to what you can make and sell. This means that you can let your creative juices flow and make money from doing what you love, while spreading that joy to others too.
Absolutely spot on and totally agree.. While I am doing what I love and am good at AND lucky enough to be making very good money too AND have outsourced my stress successfully.. what I REEEEEALLLY needed to hear was it’s okay to do ONE thing really well.. Like you, I have a ton of ideas and projects in the pipeline and getting them all done and out would mean sacrificing time with my family and self-care.. The two reasons I started working for myself in the first place.. Thank YOU for the reminder AND by the way, I totally hope you do launch The Lucky Bitch MBA at some point in time.. Would love to be a part of it:)
It really made me think – the way online marketing and making money online moves so fast, are you one of those people goofing around with those non-proven ways or are you actually moving towards a goal, adding real value and offering your expertise online?

Great advice! I was laid off a couple years ago and searched for ways to make some extra cash. One of the ways I tried was online surveys, I have tried a lot of companies and have several gift cards that I earned and will probably never use. I found one that pays by check or Paypal twice a month. The name of the company is Vindale.
You can always offer different services on your site. I can’t guarantee they’ll be converting well into clients, but it’s a one way to do it. Just add a “services” or “hire me” link at the top of your menu.
I am absolutely thrilled that I found you today! I am a 50 something female that didn’t inherit the techy gene. What I have read so far today makes sense where as many of the others haven’t or they want you to pay for their service. I don’t have a problem with doing that, however the level I am at and circumstances I am not able to do that and have been trying to figure it out on my own without much success. Looking forward to getting to know you!
Fiverr.com poses an awesome, straightforward question: what would you do for $5? Apparently, all sorts of things. The site is insanely popular, and you can find people offering just about anything, including things you didn’t even know you wanted.
I run a website that concerns itself with aircraft maintenance, and do “How to” videos geared toward what aircraft owners/pilots can do to their aircraft. How would you recommend I get several large parts suppliers to pay commissions on their parts sold on my site?
Follow George’s complete guide to trading on eToro to learn more. I think $200 is a good amount to get the most out of the learning curve by trying out a few different markets. If nothing else you’ll learn a great deal about various investments and industries.
Hi Robert, your article is just spot on! Can’t think of any other ways of monetization (unless spamming can be included, lol). I think for a start before building your own website, one should already have a goal in mind of the general purpose of the site. For an instance, our website is made to promote our web design company; but in exchange, we should also offer valuable content to our audience not only pressuring them to acquire our services or click on profitable ads. Client service before anything else 🙂
