As Web site owners, we all want to increase our income. The following seven methods can boost your income.
Join Affiliate Network
It is time-consuming for you to search for affiliate programs. Then, you can consider signing up as an affiliate of an affiliate network. They already have hundreds of products and services for you to pick from. In addition, it will pay you monthly. e.g. Commission junction is one of them. Commission junction can also pay you in one of 30 currency types, including US$, sterling, HK$, Thai Batt, etc. For details, check it out at [http://www.addto.com/track/cj/]
Set up Your Own Affiliate Program
Setting up your own affiliate/associate program means you can recruit large numbers of salespeople at a very low cost. These salespeople get paid only when they make sales/send visitors to your site. As a consequence, your products have a distribution channel, thus, increasing your revenue. You can set up your own affiliate program by installing affiliate tracking software like:

protrack --> http://www.addto.com/track/protrack/ [http://www.addto.com/track/protrack/]
or employing an affiliate network like commission junction ---> [http://www.addto.com/track/cj/]

Write and Distribute a Press Release
A well-written press release lets you get multiple exposures in off-line magazines. It inevitably builds credibility to your site. As more people know your site, you can expect that you will have more visitors. As a result, you get more sales.

Sell Ad Banner Space with the Help of an Advertising Network
If you have a considerable amount of traffic but not enough ad sales by yourself, e.g. 6,000-8,000 pageviews per month. You can consider joining an advertising network. It will find the right advertisers for you. Of course, the income is not very lucrative. However, it may well cover your Web hosting fee or even more. One of the advertising networks I know of is Burst Media, located at http://www.burstmedia.com
Improve Search Engine Position
If your site can get a top 10 search engine placement, you can expect a big jump in visitor numbers. However, I recommend that visitor numbers is not everything. You must get QUALITY visitors. Hence, you should focus on related and specific keywords, e.g. If you are selling cheese, you must consider a top 10 position when someone types "cheese" and not "food". A software called Webposition Gold can help you in improving your search engine position. Download the trail copy at: [http://www.addto.com/track/webpositiongold/]
