There are many ways and it is really easy. I´m going to present you some possibilities of earning money online.

How to make money online – The process explained

Now I give you a taste of some ways of many to make money with your website. If you want to dig deeper down in each of these there are many helpful pieces of training within the Wealthy Affiliate community.

Building a list – Email marketing

A great way to make money with a website is to build a list by capturing your visitor’s email addresses. It allows you to keep in contact with your visitors. By giving them value and solutions to their problems you become the person to go to in that special field. The easiest way to capture an email from your visitors is by giving them something in return for their email address. It could be a small e-book for free for example. There are many programs to collect emails that can help you to manage emails, follow up and broadcast them.

Adsense Ads and Other Ad Programs

Adsense Ads are a way to make money online. You sign up an account with Google Adsense and after approval, you can log in. You get an ad code that you add to your own site. Ads will show in you post, page or sidebar. When visitors click on these ads you will get paid for it. The payout depends on competition and demand and it varies highly from $0.1 up to $20 per click. You are allowed to add 3 ad blocks to every page or post and you can customize it so that it blends in with your theme and content.

Amazon products

There is a huge amount of products on The great thing when you add products from is that you get a commission as well from any other products your visitor buys when you send through purchase. Starting out you will get 4% commission but logically the more products you sell the higher commission you will get. The products don´t need to be expensive but if you target more expensive products you can make good money. For example, a $1200 TV will give you a $48 with 4% commission. If your visitors purchase anything at all, not even related to your product you still get paid. 🙂

Creating your own product

    Hi Andrew! Thanks for sharing this information. I’m not too familiar with Google Adsense and need to know more about it. How much does it cost or is it free to the website owner?

    1. Andrew Post author

      Hi Kay! Thanks for your question. You will need to set-up a Google account if you don’t already have one. It is for free. You will also have to give Google Adsense your website URL to do this.
      I hope this helps you. If you have any questions, just feel free to contact me.
      Best wishes
