Google Adsense

Google will provide you a code to copy and paste onto your website. You get paid any time someone clicks on your ads and/or makes a purchase.

Text Links

A text link is a highlighted word you can click on in a web article to take you to another web page. There are many companies who are willing to pay for you to link from your website to theirs.

Sponsored Posts

With a sponsored post, a company pays you to talk about their product or service on their website. I recommend only promote companies you believe in and feel good about. Otherwise, you most likely won’t build trust with your readers.

Affiliate Marketing

By adding affiliate links to your website, companies or services will pay you to promote them by using pre-made ads and clickable banners provided by them. You will be paid for each completed transaction originating from your unique link.

Display Ads

With display ads, you actually get paid based on the number of times your ads are viewed. For that reason, these ads will work best for websites with a huge viewership.
