So you have a great service or product based online business and sales are going great, however, you would love to find a way to further increase your income. Providing advertising on your website is an excellent way to add additional streams of income to your online business. This can be accomplished in several different ways.
Providing advertising opportunities to other business owners is a great way to add to your income as well as helping to support other in-home business. You can offer banner or button ads for monthly or yearly prices. You could also set up a newsletter that could be viewed on your website and sell ad space in it. Another option would be to set up a page for classified text ads and charge weekly, monthly, or yearly rates.
Affiliate programs are another route to go to gain income from advertising on your website. Most often how an affiliate program works is you put a banner up on your site and you keep a portion of the profits of whatever sales were made through your link. In addition to retaining a portion of sales through your affiliate, there are a few other ways to earn money through affiliate programs.
The affiliate program you sign up for may have you earning money by the amount of time the advertisers banner is displayed on your site, how many times the banner on your site is clicked, or by how many leads are gained through your affiliate link. Keep in mind you will want to site up for affiliate programs that are relevant to the content on your website.
Pop up ads and pop-under ads are also ways to make money with advertising on your website. Both options of advertising pay a lot more then banner ads do. The possible downside to having pop-up ads on your website is that many internet surfers dislike them and close them before they are done loading so you will not get paid. Pop-under ads however load in the background of the screen creating much less interference on the potential customer’s screen. If you choose to take this route in advertising carefully read the fine print so you know exactly how the advertiser will be paying you.
Some search engines offer programs for business owners to earn income by displaying their ads on their website. The business owner would receive a set amount of money each time the ads on their site were clicked on. The ads the search engine would be displayed would be relevant to whatever content was displayed on the website.
By adding a blog to your website you can provide advertising for yourself. By giving reviews for your products and giving your customers and potential customers a sneak peak into your new product offerings you can increase interest in the items or services you offer thus increasing your sales.
How ever you choose to make money with advertising on your website make sure to do thorough research so that you select the options that will work best for your site.
