Conventionally, ways to make money on the Internet can be divided into two groups: earn using your own website or without it. We will break this article into two parts for convenience too. In this article we will talk about the first option: how to make money if you have a website.

Our web studio will gladly help in creating your site.
The cost of services for creating site you can see on the page Services.
1. Create own blog.
Some people start blogging without initially setting a goal like earning. A blogger can share his culinary recipes, news in various fields, facial care secrets and much more.
When the number of blog visitors is already impressive, you can begin to think about monetizing the blog. Earnings can be obtained from:
- Advertising sales;
- Writing articles to order and posting on your blog;
- Selling your own lessons or products (e.g. books);
- Sale of products/services of partners.
In order for your blog to become popular, it can share some secrets:
- Post truly original and interesting content on your blog.
- Write your articles yourself, then they will be unique, and then Google will appreciate it.
- Learn the basics of SEO (there is a lot of information on the Internet), and promote your blog in search engines. Also, you can always order SEO from specialists.
Sometimes the secret of a successful blog is very simple – a person shares what is really interesting and important for him, and this, believe me, is passed on to website visitors 😉
2. Implement affiliate website
You can create a website for advertising or direct sales of products or services of a partner. On this site you can write reviews for a particular product, giving a link to the partner’s site.
For example, you can create a website where you will write reviews on various cosmetics that you will “try” on yourself. And in the article you can leave a link to your partner’s site or directly to this product, where it can be purchased directly.
3. Create online store
Creating our own online store is considered one of the most reliable ways to make money on the Internet. Moreover, sales can be started immediately the day after creation of online store.
Steps to create a successful online store:
- Choose a niche: determine the groups of products with which you would like to work. We advise you to choose the group of products that is close to you, in which case it will be interesting for you to deal with your store, and there is more chance of making it successful. For example, if you like fishing, you can make an online store selling fishing tackle, spinning rods and fishing rods.
- Define your target audience. Someone forgets about this important point, and in vain. Indeed, the design, marketing, selection of products and much more depends on what target audience your store is designed for. For example, if you want to sell women’s clothing to girls aged 18-25, they don’t like site in strict colors.
- Find suppliers of niche products. Today, there are a large number of suppliers of certain products, many of which work in dropshipping, which is very convenient: you do not need to purchase products in advance and have a warehouse. Also quite popular is the way to buy certain products on a trading platform such as AliExpress, where you can buy products cheaper, and then sell more expensive.
- Create a quality online store. We advise you to entrust the creation of an online store to specialists, because in this case, you can be sure that you will have a really high-quality developed online store with a modern design and rich functionality.
The cost of creating an online store in our web studio: from 20,000 UAH “turnkey”. This price already includes responsive design and a site control panel. You can find out more on the service page Online Shop.
4. Design a site with paid access
If you own any valuable information or your blog has already gained such popularity that people are willing to pay for new articles, you can safely try to make some sections of the site paid. Or it may be paid to download some book or course.
5. Sell your services on the site
If your services are no longer sold offline or you want to attract more customers, feel free to create a website to sell services. For example, are you a copywriter or photographer, but there are very few orders? This may serve as an occasion to create a small business card website where you tell about yourself, give examples of your work (portfolio), customer reviews, indicate the price of your services and contacts. Having your own website, you instantly increase your rating in the eyes of a potential client: you do your business seriously, there is a portfolio that you can conveniently familiarize yourself with on the site, here are the reviews of your customers, and the picture of you, as a professional in your field, is already taking shape. Thus, you can receive more calls.

Or consider another situation. Are you a real estate agency, a beauty salon or a cleaning company, but recently there have been fewer calls and visits to your office and, accordingly, orders? And how can potential customers know about you when you do not have own website? The only solution is to create it.

6. Organize a bulletin board
Over time, a bulletin board can be a pretty lucrative way to make money on the Internet.
You can create your own bulletin board on any subject or several at once. For example, it can be a bulletin board about job search, about selling clothes, about selling real estate, etc.
Of course, in order to start making money on the bulletin board you need to make a lot of effort to promote it, so that it becomes popular, and only then you can add tariff plans, for example, to display ads in the TOP, highlighting an ad, etc. The bulletin board is a long way, but it can be very profitable in the long run.
7. Create an online catalog
A very interesting way to make money on the Internet is to create your own online catalog with a description, ratings, rating of companies in a particular field, or several at once. It will be possible to earn later for a list of these companies in your catalog (customer base). You can also offer the service of raising the company in the TOP in the list.
8. Sell ad space on the site
If your site receives a large amount of traffic, it is popular, and the number of visitors is growing every day, you can sell an ad space on your site. With proper placement of advertising, it does not look intrusive, and really works, especially if the advertising is thematic with the article itself. And the teapot, for example, that you watched in the online store, does not chase you around, even when you are now reading about the benefits of cabbage :).
There are many different advertising platforms. The most popular of these is Google Adsense. Payouts, however, with such ads are small, but stable and grow as your site grows in popularity.
You can also sell an ad space for a banner directly to the company that wants to add it to your site.
9. Create online courses
Today it has become very popular to share your unique experience/skills with others. If you have any knowledge that other people ready to pay for, you can safely create your own course program or conduct online courses. For example, if you are an accountant, this can be an online accounting course for FOPs of the 1st and 2nd groups independently without an accountant – it will be very useful for small entrepreneurs. Courses can be conducted online, they can be sold separately in PDF format or recorded video lessons. And you can post information about your courses on your website, in social networks, on YouTube, etc. This method can bring huge profits if the knowledge that you transmit is really valuable, or you have a large audience.
10. Sell your site
One of the most seemingly simple ways to make money on a site is to sell it. But this, of course, is not entirely true. If the site is successful (a large number of sales, visitors, etc.), then the cost of such a site can be very high, and perhaps you can earn on it much more in the future than just sell it right away. But there are situations when for some reason you don’t plan to deal with the site anymore and then you sell it.
The website’s price is affected by several indicators: its traffic, age, how much profit it brings, income stability, etc.
So, we examined 10 ways to make money on the Internet during a crisis and not only if you have a website. In the next part of the article, you will learn how to make money on the Internet if you do not have a website. Wait for the next article, it will be interesting 😉
