Are you getting a lot of organic traffic to your website? Do you have an idea for a product or service to sell? Do you have the right price point for your product or service? These are all important considerations as you move towards a profitable website.
2022 might be the year to start monetizing your website by implementing some strategies to help advance your business.
Try Affiliate Marketing
Depending on your audience and website traffic, this may be a great way to earn some money. If you write content that follows SEO best practices and ranks well, you may gain quite a bit of organic traffic. Once you have a certain number of monthly visitors, making some product recommendations and linking out directly from your site will enable you to collect a small percentage of each sale. When this happens at scale, it could lead to significant amounts of revenue for your website. If you don’t yet have a website of your own, you can also start by finding a job in affiliate marketing.
Sell a Product or Service (digital or physical)
Sell ebooks, courses, or productized services. This will require you to use your skills in eCommerce and SEO to show up on rankings and get some credibility.
Having decent traffic or subscribers on an email list will help as well. A good way to get started is to offer consultations at first. This way after your initial consultation, you can point your interested leads towards one of your products.
Developing relationships and standing behind the quality of your products will help to create a self-reinforcing ecosystem of information, which leads to income for your site.
Create a Paid Membership To Access Your Content
If you can consistently research and produce valuable information on a given specialty, or consistently produce content and materials monthly, you can create a subscription service.
Netflix and streaming services really paved the way with this model, but it has consistent and tangible benefits for all kinds of products. Patreon is a great example, where podcast hosts can offer subscription tiers to their fans for episodes of their show, or merchandise. A podcast is a pretty cost effective way to release some content on your site and interact with potential clients.
Allow for Display Ads to Show On Your Site
Advertising is a huge opportunity for consistent income on your website, even if only as a temporary option. Allowing banner ads on your site is a way to consistently create revenue, and gauge traffic. There are free plugins you can use to measure how ads are performing and to determine the best ad placement on your site.
No matter what strategy you decide to use, there is money to be made. However none of these strategies will work to monetize your site in 2022, if you do not have a consistent and reliable website hosting service. Your website is the backbone of your business, brand, and online presence. Take comfort in knowing that it is monitored and protected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with CanSpace Solutions.
