My website is a lifestyle blog/podcast for women. I cover topics that are relevant to their day to day lives - single or married. My site has been up since 2009.
Here are a few ideas for monetizing your traffic:
- Offer a premium subscription to your site & added benefits for those folks who pay a small monthly fee.
- Recommend to your audience relevant products and books using an Amazon affiliate link.
- Consider charging a small fee for some of your podcast sessions, or host separate webinars or workshops that you charge for.
- Reach out to other sites that are trying to get in front of a similar audience as yours, and offer to link to their site or recommend their content/product/service to your audience for a fee.
Happy to hop on a call if you'd like to discuss other ideas. Best of luck!
