How You Can Make Money from a Content Website
There are essentially five ways that you can make money from your content using the SubHub website publishing solution.
Advertising is the simplest way to generate revenues from content.
You no longer have to sell the advertising space on your site, you can simply sign up to an ad network, integrate the ads into your site and wait for the money to roll in. The most popular ad network is Google Adsense, but there are many more that are growing in popularity.
Alternatively, you can sell your own advertising or site sponsorship so you don’t have to share the revenue with the ad networks.
SubHub’s platform enables easy integration of both ad networks and your own ads.
Affiliate marketing is halfway between advertising and ecommerce.
You place links or ads on your website. If one of your site visitors clicks on the link, goes through to a third party merchant site AND makes a purchase, you get paid a commission on the sale. Commissions vary depending on the value and quantity of products sold.
You can easily imbed affiliate links and ads into SubHub pages.
You can sell physical and digital products from your site.
Most content sites have the potential to make good revenue from selling ebooks, reports, white papers, research, podcasts and other downloadable products. Many also sell physical goods that they either stock and ship themselves, or they just take the orders for a third party merchant to fulfil.
SubHub has ecommerce functionality built into the platform to enable you to sell both digital and physical products.
Charging access to premium content is one of the most profitable ways you can build a sustainable online business.
To create a successful subscription website, you need to be able to separate public and member content, manage member’s personal data and process recurring payments. These capabilities should be fully automated so you don’t spend your life dealing with customer service issues.
SubHub’s platform has been built to handle all aspects of running a subscription website.
Participation relates to the many different events that you can promote through your website.
These include webinars, teleseminars, seminars, conferences, consultancy, etc. It could also include licensing products, franchising your services, or other creative ways of leveraging your audience.
You can schedule events and sell tickets through your SubHub website.
To maximise the money you can make from your content website you should have multiple revenue streams. SubHub makes it easy for you to generate income from advertising, affiliate marketing, ecommerce, subscription and event promotion.
