Five Ways to Monetize Your Website - Direct Sales
(Page 3 of 4 )
Obviously everyone who has a website or blog isn't selling a good or service, but there are many who are considering it, and thankfully for them, it's the single easiest way to monetize a website or blog. If you blog about baking, you can monetize your website by selling your baked goods or a book of your recipes. If you are a musician with a website about music, you can sell your album online; it's that simple. There are a number of different online services you can utilize in order to ensure that your customers get the best service that not only protects their financial information, but gets your products to them securely and in a timely manner.
If you're interested in becoming a merchant, you may want to look into using PayPal , the single most trusted online payment service that will enable you to safely receive the debit/credit card information of your customers. PayPal offers a free set up, no monthly charges and allows buyers to enter their personal information on secure PayPal pages that immediately revert them back to your website or blog.
The PayPal logo will surely put customers at ease in terms of ordering from a small website because of the fact that PayPal is so widely used and recognized as a premier service. PayPal also offers a shopping cart option to interested merchants looking to make the switch from blog or website to a direct sales site that much easier. Other sites, such as KickStartCart , also offer all of the necessary tools that online merchants will need in order to monetize their site, such as a shopping cart, merchant account and marketing tools.
Utilizing websites such as Voxant News Room will prove to be ideal for those who are looking to monetize their personal blog or blog devoted to discussing current or world events.
The News Room has an impressive group of affiliates, including the Associated Press, MTV News, CBS News and the BBC, among others. This is how it works: you sign up at the News Room's website and it permits you access to a countless number of fully-licensed news feeds in the form of videos, text and photographs. Getting paid is as simple as embedding the content on to your website or blog and in turn, you automatically share in the advertising revenue every time an embedded story is viewed on your site.
Does it sound too good to be true? It isn't; you only have to join to participate. This is the perfect option for webmasters interested in generating revenue while still being able to blog about current or world events that they are interested in and passionate about.
