So you have your website and your e-book and are marketing it very well. Is that all? No! There are many other ways to make money with your website that have nothing to do with your e-book. As long as you are marketing your website and trying to draw as much traffic as possible to your site, you might as well kill as many birds with this stone as possible.

There are two easy ways that you can use to make money just by having a website alone. They involve procuring advertisements on your site. You can use pay per click ads or affiliate links and get money each time someone buys a product or clicks on an ad. This can really add up for you and bring in hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars a month.

Pay per click ads

Once you have established your website, go to AdSense or GoogleAds and sign up for this service. This is free. You will open an account and they will take a look at your site. They will then post pay per click ads on your site. Each time someone visits your site and clicks on an ad, you will get paid money.

Pay per click ad revenue can really ad up. The ads will have to be relevant to your website, but Google normally puts several different pay per click ads on one site. You will want many ads, but not so many that it takes up your entire site.

By having a website, you have the freedom of being able to attract advertisement that pays you, instead of the sponsoring site. And because you can have many different pages on your website, you can make the most of the ads.

Pay per click ads can range from banner ads to links. You do not have to rely on one site to provide the ads, either. Check out other advertising revenue all over the internet.

Make sure that you do not litter your site with too many ads. You will still want your site to be relevant and informational. If you have too many ads, people will pass your site over thinking it is just a site for ads. Remember that the content that you display on your site will dictate the type of ads that you will receive on your website.

Affiliate Links

Affiliate links are a little different than pay per click ads and generate more revenue. An affiliate link is used to get business to a site and can be placed anywhere in your website, even in your text. You are trying to get someone to buy a certain product or subscribe to a certain site.

When I had my website selling my cheap recipes book, I also became an affiliate for a few websites that sold cooking products. Every time someone from my site clicked on the link and purchased something from their site, I got a percentage of the profit. It was a win-win situation for me as it cost me nothing and I could only earn money.

In order to make my affiliate links look more like information and less like advertising, I wrote articles that pertained to the affiliate links and put them on my website. These were informational articles that were helpful to a reader but also gave a link to the affiliate site which was selling whatever I was touting in my article.

This ended up getting me more revenue on my site. The articles were not difficult for me to write, only took a few minutes of my time, and ended up bringing me several hundred dollars a week in ad revenue.

Becoming an affiliate for any website is simple. You need to only sign up. Make sure that the site has some sort of connection to your website and product in some way so that your articles don't seem out of place.

Also make sure that the article is totally informational and does not seem like a sales pitch. People are often turned off by blatant attempts to seduce them into buying something. You are better off to give information, a link, and allow the buyer to make up his or her own mind.

You can have as many affiliates as you want on your website. Just be sure to tie them in to your website and general topic or else they will not only seem out of place, but the articles will most likely be ineffective as they will not be aimed at the correct target market.

Using affiliate links and pay per click ads can add much revenue to your website. You can get paid right through your Paypal account. It is well worth the effort to become an affiliate for a few websites as it has the potential of bringing in a lot of money.

There are some people who just have websites solely for the purpose of having ad and affiliate revenue. If you have a website, you can usually add several pages to your site and can feature many different products of which you are affiliated. Again, the trick to affiliates is to make it look as if you are not selling anything but offering free information.

The more information that you provide on your website, the more potential you will have for making money on your website and allowing your website to work for you.
