5 ways that you can actually make money with a website

For a long time now i have been trying many different ways to actually make money with a website. Some have worked for me but many have failed for several different reasons. However if one method fails then instead of just giving up you should keep trying to find which method is best for you. The main problem that many people have when they try to make money online is lack of traffic. To actually make serious money online then traffic is the first step.  Check this out for a guide on increasing your websites traffic.

Premium content

This has become popular with many websites over the past few years and a premium content section is a great way to make money with your website. If you have pay monthly content then you can be earning a regular income. To start a premium content section you need a website which  already has a huge following. If users like what they are seeing then they are going to want more and the premium section is where you can provide this.


Sponsored posts

Sponsored posts and pages on your website or blog can be a another nice way to make money and if you have a successful website then you can charge huge amounts of money for this service. Other online companies and websites will approach you and then all you need to do is write a high quality review adverting their services.

 Job Boards

If you have regular high traffic and your website is in a particular niche Eg graphic design then an online job board can be a great and unusual way to make money online. There will be many users to your niche job board as it is a great way for people of similar interests to be connected with each other. If you are using WordPress then there are many themes and plugins available to help you.


This is proberly the most popular way to make money online however many people give up if Adsense does not work for them. There are many advertising networks available now and you should try as many as you can. Advertising can be a great way to make money online, especially if you have high traffic. However advertising cannot be a source of regular income as you never know when people are going to click on your adverts or you may come across an advertiser.

Sell your website

Selling your website can earn you a huge amount of money all at once. If you fell you do not want your website anymore then instead of taking it offline then sell it instead. If you are planning on selling your website then you must make sure you get in contact with your web host and tell them about the change of details.There are many places that you can sell  your website but the best place is Flippa.
