By: Michael Dunlop Topics: Make Money Online
In 2015, making money online has never been easier!
This blog makes money by selling our own online courses, software and other peoples products as an affiliate.
However, there are a lot more than two ways to make money online.
Every site needs to be treated different.
It can take a while to work out how to best make money from a website. If something doesn’t work, try something else. Don’t just give up. The main reason people fail with blogging, isn’t because their idea or website is bad but because they give up too soon.
Here are the 14 ways you can monetize your website:

Ways To Monetize Your Websites
This is one of my favorite things to talk about because it’s just so powerful.
Building an email list can make you a lot of money, help you build a solid brand and of course help readers come back to your site, time after time.
Email marketing can be seen to make you money in a few different ways, such as direct email promotions, to deliver free reports that are monetized and my favorite, to drive traffic back to your site where you make money from other methods.
Gone are the days of finding it hard to get people to subscribe to your website.
A few years ago, we added a lightbox popup to IncomeDiary. Over night, we went from getting 20+ subscribers a day to well over 100.
At the time, most websites hated the idea of using popups because of the negative association people have with them. But these popups are different. Instead of popping up in another browser window, they popup as part of the page you are on. It was a lot less intrusive. Even better, it wasn’t to promote something spammy, but rather something of value to the reader.
After seeing the massive results, we decided to develop our own software so that other website owners can experience the huge gains we have. We called it PopUp Domination.
Even after selling over 30,000 copies, big names in the industry still didn’t want to use it. They thought they knew better. But that’s changed now because they started using it to and saw the results for themselves. Now it’s unlikely to find a monetized website that doesn’t use popups.
Love it or hate it but a big reason for the success of popup opt-ins is down to this site you are on today.
PopUp Domination works on any website. Has over 30 different designs, each with over a dozen color options. We offer a full 60 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee.
The next best thing is a squeeze page, which is a dedicated page to getting a visitor to sign up for your mailing list. You can see an example of a page like this by checking out our squeeze page for our Traffic Domination video! If you want to create amazing high converting squeeze pages (+ a lot more), check out Optimizepress, we wrote an in-depth review on it.
Here is an example of a squeeze page we created with Optimizepress for our photography blog:
In order to start collecting emails, you need to sign up for Aweber which hosts your emails, allows you to send messages to them, create follow up campaigns, split test etc.
Personally I would say you should also pick up PopUp Domination, not because I own it but because it’s the best thing for email marketing. About 85% of my subscribers sign up via it, 10% from my squeeze page and 5% from other optins.
