Are you making money hand over fist with your website? If you are then you don’t need to bother reading this article because it is not for you. If you are like most of us your website sales are slow and unpredictable and you need to think of new ways to make money online without taking more time and effort. All of your time should be dedicated to producing your product, right? Well, here are just a few ways to make a little bit or a lot of money online without any effort.
Sign up to become an affiliate for other businesses that are on the net. I only sign up with the companies that I honestly would recommend to anyone. All that you have to do is refer your customers to these sites. Once one of my referrals makes a purchase, I receive a small payment. With some of the affiliate programs, the fee is quite large.
2. Google Ads
I was not too sure about this one but I signed up and I am now convinced. The first week that I had Google ads on my website I made $.18 and the next week I made $6.45! Wow! Big boost. If I keep this up, I just may be able to pay for my web host by the end of the month!
3. Google Search
Works close to the same way as the ads. People use your search tool, make a purchase, and then you are compensated.
Another great tool that will trickle in a few dollars here and there, all for 10 minutes of your time putting a little code into your website and Amazon does the rest.
5. Selling Ad Space
You could sell ad space if you have a site that has high traffic.
6. Selling Subscriptions to Your Newsletter
If you have a newsletter that has high-demand information, you could charge for your newsletter.
7. Selling Ad Space in Your Newsletter
Sell ad space in your newsletter. Same drill as with ad space on your website. Just put a box on your newsletter with a note inside it that says “Your Banner Could Go Here” Then have a page that tells how many subscribers you have, how often your newsletter goes out, and what type of content it usually contains plus the price per ad.
8. Selling E-Books
Do you know something about your craft or hobby that you know people would pay to learn as well? Then sell it in an e-book. What a great way to make a little extra money. You take the time to write a good quality e-book then just fill the orders. You could even set it up so that once the e-book order has been processed and paid for, it goes out automatically using an auto responder without you even having to lift a finger, except to go to the bank to collect your money.
9. Consulting – Offer your services
Do you sell wedding supplies and know all of the best suppliers around? Do a little research and offer your services as a wedding coordinator. Offer your assistance to the people that want to plan their own wedding, but need a little bit of help.
Remember, you won’t get rich with just one of these programs, but you just may make a tidy little sum every month with a combination of all of them.
