Earning Extra Income Through Advertisement

There are many ways to make money on your website, and advertising is one effective way to generate lucrative funds. If you have a website, then you should probably take advantage of it by placing advertisement, as long as the advetisement does not interfere with the browsing of the visitors to your website.

There are three main types of advertisements which you can feature on your website to generate additional income:

  1. Pay per impression ads - each time an ad is shown on one of your web pages, you get paid. With this type of ads, you are looking at $0.02-$0.05 per ad.
  2. Pay per click ads - you get paid each time a visitor to your website clicks on one of those ads. These ads generate $0.10 - $0.25 per click.
  3. Affiliate programs ads - those are ads that appear on your website for which you get paid a commission if a user buys something as a result of clicking on the ad on your web page. The commissions could range from a few cents to hunderds of dollars, depending on what you are advertising. If you select your affiliate programs carefully and promote them well, you can make generous commissions from them.

If you plan to use ads on your website, here are a few tips to help you out:

  • To generate revenue through ads, you need to attract traffic to your website. The more people come to your website, the more ads will be displayed, and the more money you will make.
  • Publish a free newsletter that contains information interesting to your website visitors. A newsletter will keep you in touch with your visitors and will give you an extra medium to publish the advertisement.
  • Don't be greedy. Too many ads on a page is a turn-off for your visitors. Stick to one or two ads per page.
  • Select your advertisement companies well. Go with reputable firms only. Many people have spend a lot of effort promoting ads and ended up not being paid because they went with unknown companies that refused to pay them. Commission Junction is a website where you can signup for various affiliate programs and get paid for all under one check.
  • Use targetted advertisements. Advertise only those products and services that visitors to your website would be interested in. It doesn't make sense to advertise camping equipment on a stock trading website.
