I don’t know about you but I don’t have a website for the sheer joy of it – I want to make money. The question arises, then: how do we do that?
Well, of course there are our product and service offerings. And there’s the inevitable eBook or the email course or the consulting session. But these are more about doing business and less about getting our websites to generate money for us. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could tap into that coveted passive income and get our websites doing some of the work for us?
Thanks to Patrick O’Keefe and his recently published free eBook Monetizing Online Forums you can get a good jump start on learning how to monetize your site. Don’t let the word “forum” scare you – you can use these same principles on your site or blog.
If you’ve recently read our interview with Patrick then you already have some background on this amazingly inspiring guy and the story behind the book. If not, be sure to check it out!
And thanks to Skimlinks, who collaborated with Patrick to get the book published, you can get a nice overview of the type of monetization that may work best for you – along with the pros and cons – in the visual below.
