How Do You Make Money From a Website?

    What are the various methods to make money using a website (passive or active income)?
    I am not really talking about selling a physical product via the website because that is obvious.

    How much money could a person make for annual income?

    • ads
    • charge for content
    • accept donations (don't know if this works... 20 years ago it didn't)
    • get a billion visitors and wait for an IPO:)
    Ads pay on average 0.50 - 5 USD / 1000 views (+-500%). Depends on what the website is about and how much are your visitor types to the advertiser. These have to be legit views.

    Create a course on something and sell that.. It's still selling.
    Passive income can be achieved, but you have to work your ass off in the beggining and have a really good site idea and execution. Oh.. and marketing and a differentiator.
    If you're good, copycat sites still work and generate income. If the users add the content, or you scrape it, it can be passive, otherwise, you have to pay someone to add new content.

    The question is too general. How much can you make? Anywhere from ZERO to a million or more. Realistically? A few bucks, and you have to work your ass off just for that.

    Write, add content, write, add content...blah blah blah...you have to BUILD an audience to make anything and it's not overnight success. Then, once you have actual visitors, you can monetize your content in many ways, such as affiliate ads, selling stuff, selling the site itself, banners, pops, posts, etc...

    Good luck!

    we use Shopify and selling products to make money, the ROI depends on different niche.
    we use Google and FB gain visitors.

    Affiliate links. You can recommend products while you give advice to your audience - amazon associates is great for this. Once you start getting a lot of traffic you can place adsense ads on your site, or sell ad spots to individuals for monthly income.

    Build your audience through social media by sharing your content. Post content often to speed up the process. Try to build a mailing list in the process, so you can reach your audience in multiple ways, and sell to them via email as well. A lot of this can be automated to an extent, but it's still a lot of work and time to get to the point where the site is making you money in your sleep.

    A lot of people are moving away from Facebook ads to help online business and moving to Tik Tok, Why because Facebook is going to allow people to opt-out of advertising soon. At least that is in the rumor mill. So the place people are headed is Tik Tok and this audience is more niche and looking for what they are interested in.

    Create a site that gets traffic for local business and sell the leads to that business. I have a roofing site that gets lots of local traffic and I sell leads to a roofing company, they give me 10% of the sale so I make a couple grand a month.

    There are many ways to earn money via a website, however, that only comes from traffic, lots of it.
