Selling directly to customers is not the only
way to generate revenue online. There
are many ways you can profit from the
traffic to your website. Here are ten
golden tips to generate revenue from the
existing visits to your web site.
Join relevant affiliate programs
Have you ever been on a website and
seen a small add that says ‘Buy this
book on Amazon.com”, there is a good
chance that ad was placed by an Amazon
affiliate. An affiliate is paid a “finders
fee” for customers they send to a website.
You can generate revenue by referring
people to sites with products or services
that interest your website visitors.

Sell Advertising on your site
You can offer advertising space to advertisers
with complimentary products. Charge
them by the click or perhaps strike
a deal where they pay you for every
customer they acquire. If you have lots
of traffic to your site, visit http://www.advertising.com
they will help sell the advertising
and track traffic and clicks.
Create a “For Sale” or “Coming Soon”
If you own domains that don’t yet have
websites designed, you can create a
page to offer the domain name for sale,
or to let customers know it is in development
and “coming soon”. When customers visit
these pages, they can be directed to
links to similar sites. www.moniker.com
offers free parking pages.

someone is leaving your site without
purchasing anything, isn’t it worth
one more chance to catch their attention?
Exit pop-up ads can generate 5-15% of
daily sales for most websites.
Sell sponsored content areas
In many industries, companies would
be willing to provide content (articles,
online tools and functionality) in exchange
for recognition and a link to their
website. For example on MSN, ESPN provides
sports information and MSNBC provides
Sell ‘Opt-in’ traffic in the sales
Many companies will pay for names and
email addresses of people who have opted
to receive information and special offers.
For example, magazine subscription companies
will pay a finders fee for every person
that agrees to receive a free trial
of a publication.
Sell relevant or complimentary products.
If you sell toys, offer to ship the
required batteries with the toy for
a special price. If you sell books,
offer a book mark or book light with
Sell your exit traffic
When a customer clicks on the little
“x” at the top right hand corner of
your site, don’t despair, send her to
a complimentary website. Utilize an
affiliate code or arrange for a CPA
(Cost Per Acquisition) or CPL (Cost
Per Lead) reward for customers that
the destination site is able to convert.
