How to monetize your traffic

Any audience can be monetized. Once you have people's eyeballs, you can make money. Most passive income streams fall into the following categories: 

  1. If your niche is something entertainment related, then ads are usually the way to go. For this you need sheer numbers in order to make anything profitable. E.g.Google Adsense.
  2. Affiliate (such as Amazon) - if your audience would be interested in products, then tell them to go buy the products they'd already be interested in and make a small commission. 
  3. If you're doing something compelling that no one else can do, then charge a fee for it. You can handle payment through PayPal or Stripe. If you are offering "secret information" then charge a monthly fee for being a part of your cult.
