It is possible for you to earn money from your Joomla website. Having set up a website using the Joomla content management system, you can proceed to set up systems that would enable you to earn money from the site. As long as the Joomla website is ‘live’, and as long as it is receiving some traffic (visitors), there is absolutely no reason as to why you can’t monetize it. That way, you would – at the very least – be in a position to earn the money you need to keep the website running. And on top of that, if you are lucky, you can actually get to a level where the Joomla website brings you a real, steady income.
You could actually be in a position to retire and live comfortably off the earnings from your Joomla websites! In other words, the earnings from the Joomla website may be enough to enable you to quit your day job. Like if, for instance, you work for Lowes — meaning that you have to go through the Mylowes login screen to view your paystubs. Then you set up a Joomla website. And the Joomla website attracts huge enough numbers of visitors (traffic). That may subsequently turn out to be a source of an income that is adequate for you to live on: meaning that you’d be in a position to leave the day job.
Some of the specific ways in which you can monetize your Joomla website include:
- By enrolling it for an online advertising program: this would be an arrangement where you are paid every time someone clicks on the ads that are placed on the website. It can be potentially lucrative – especially if your website is one that has many visitors.
- By enrolling it for an affiliate marketing program: here, you’d have links (on your Joomla website) to other websites that are selling various products or services. If anyone clicks on those links, and proceeds to buy the stuff that is sold on those other sites, you’d be paid a commission.
- By selling stuff directly on the website: here, you turn the Joomla website into an e-commerce platform, enabling you to sell stuff (services or products) directly on the site.
