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.

Check out this infographic produced by Skimlinks then go download the free eBook if you’re serious about monetizing your website.

Since I’m guessing you’re not Richard Branson (if you are, I’ve got some great ideas that could use funding…) then there’s no reason you couldn’t start monetizing your site right now.

I'm a business owner, content creator, podcaster and marketer. In 1999 I founded Rahvalor Interactive, a web and creative services production studio, with my husband and business partner Ralph. In 2011 we created Web.Search.Social, a consulting and marketing service line for small businesses. We also cohost the Web.Search.Social Podcast where we challenge the status quo of marketing and the Carbon Based Business Units podcast where we talk about the human side of being an entrepreneur. On any given day I wear the hat of project manager, consultant, social media manager and content marketer. My true passion is writing and in my spare time I'm busy planning my early retirement to Barcelona as a famous and wealthy novelist.
