While we all dream of striking it rich from the web, the reality is that there are no ‘magic bullets’ to online success. Luckily there are a few proven ways to make money from your website.
If you sell physical goods or downloadable ( digital ) products then you can make money from your site by setting up an ecommerce shopping cart or online orderihng form. By connecting your cart or form to a payment gateway such as PayPal or Stripe you can take payments quickly and easily and stay open 24 hours a day for new business.
If you currently provide professional services that don’t require being in the same room you can broaden your potential market by providing consultations online. Using services such as Skype or Zoom allows you to widen the geographic area of your potential clientele without reducing the value of your service offering.
Sell Yourself Even Better
Even if you provide ‘in person’ services your website can help make you more money by providing the following benefits:
Shorter sales process by informing clients that are researching online
More Enquiries through online marketing
Improve conversion by making a great first impression by having a great looking and functional site
Look bigger than you are to help gain trust
Get found by new markets that you may not have considered with advanced SEO
