I want to find out ways to make money off of your own website?

I want to create my own website within the next month or so. I plan to put up blogs and items me and my husband will have for sale. Do anybody know any other ways to make money off of your own website? How much money would I have to pay to make money off my website? I know you have to pay to get a website but are there any other fees I dont know about? I am open for any advice.....

  • I do affiliate memberships and earn through placing the ads on the site/blog. But, your big obstacle is going to be getting people to visit the site! To make any amount of money from affiliates or anything else you need to have a LOT of traffic that's actually looking through things, that's not as easy as it sounds.

  • Google AdWords and AdSense, but they don't draw us too much business or money. We get hits to our site simply from good keywords and being listed on the directories and marketing and advertising I do locally.

  • Google AdSense, selling ad space. For businesses that are starting out, the best bet is search engine optimization and advertising targeted to your key demographic.
