Conclusions and final advice
Before continuing, remember that the monetization formulas on the Internet are far from exhausting in these 10 that I present here; there are many more. From this post, you will have a very complete first view of the topic of monetization of web pages, but I also encourage you to continue investigating.
Remember also that this is a highly creative topic, there is always room for new ideas that can be an excellent alternative to generate income for your particular case. Having said that, let’s do it 🙂
How much money can you earn with a website?
As you can imagine, the potential income bracket with a website is huge. Start from scratch if you do things wrong and go as far as the cases of “solopreneurs” (solo entrepreneurs) turned into millionaires.
Cases of millionaire solopreneurs in the US such as Tim Ferris, John Lee Dumas, or Lewis Howes and similar examples in Spain such as Euge Oller or Isasaweis are not the result of chance. They prove that the Internet has the potential to create extremely profitable businesses, even on an individual level.
Now, few people will get as far as the protagonists of these examples, we also have to keep a realistic perspective, of course.
What then would be a realistic middle ground?
A very good reference to see it is the “Bloggerview” interviews of “normal” websites that we have done here at Citizen 2.0, people like you and me who are subscribers to our blog (members of the “VIP Zone”).
The cases you can find here range from small “side projects” (small part-time projects) that generate a few hundred euros a month to projects turned into professions like Revolutionary Fitness by Marcos Vázquez, with six-digit income a year.

What type of website is the best to generate income?
If you are creating your project with the goal in mind that it is an online business, the obvious question is what type of website is the best for generating income.
It is a very complicated question … I would even say that it has no answer, and that is that there are many more weight factors involved than the web itself.
Let’s see some example:
First of all, much more than the type of website, what really matters is the topic (the niche) you choose. There are activities that, a priori, are more “monetizable” and others that are less. Then, a little further down, we delve further into the topic “chosen niche”.

Another aspect, decisive for many people, is the technical difficulty of creating the web and marketing it. For some people, the excessive technical difficulty becomes an impassable barrier that kills the project before it is born.
There are many more aspects, but I think you are seeing why I say that it is a very relative and complicated question to argue objectively. However, I am going to dare with a classification (of course, totally subjective ) of “easier to more difficult” of the four main options:
1. Make money with YouTube
YouTube is a brilliant option to start online work. Also, it seems to be the most affordable option because it is quite easy and fast to create a channel and start Also, it seems to be the most affordable option because it is quite easy and fast to create a channel and start making videos.
Here you can see how you can create an attractive channel from scratch and how to make money with it:

How to create an attractive YouTube channel in 5 simple steps
Creating a YouTube channel is very easy nowadays. ✅Even making it “pretty” is easier than you think. Here I show you everything starting from scratch.

Many associates making money on YouTube with ads. But that is only one of the formulas, and one of the worst. Learn about better alternatives here.
Furthermore, YouTube has a huge audience potential. You can easily see it in the consolidated YouTubers: even in Spanish, there are already many with more than 100,000 subscribers and hundreds of millions of reproductions of their videos.
We are talking about channels that get millions of views of their videos every month. As you can imagine, with these numbers, the economic figures they manage are also important. The biggest drawback I see is being on one platform of another (Google in this case). One of the most important consequences of this is that Google has control over your subscribers, not you.
This, on the one hand, limits you in marketing actions (you do not have their email to contact them, for example) but it also represents a strategic risk for your business. Closure of your account, for example, would mean losing all your subscribers with one stroke, you literally would have “disappeared” from the Internet overnight. Without reaching these extremes, platforms are changing their conditions for creators, these changes will not always be favorable to your interests (reduction of the organic scope, for example).
2. Generate income with a blog
A blog is another excellent option for creating an income-generating website.
Here you can also be within a platform ( Blogger, WordPress.com, Squarespace, etc.) or have your own platform, for which you need hosting and WordPress.
If you need hosting for your website or your blog, take action!

You can imagine that for a business I recommend, as a general rule, the second option.
In this case, it is, above all, a question of marketing potential, that is, the maximum potential in flexibility; tools you can use to do marketing, etc. You will have them on a blog with WordPress and hosting.

The disjunctive blog versus YouTube channel is very frequent. So I want to mention, at least, these essential aspects to keep in mind, along with my advice on what to do:
Video vs. text:
there are people who are better at writing than making videos and vice versa. Overcome everyone’s initial embarrassment with the video and try both to find out which medium works best for you.
A blog has less traffic potential… : This is also a very generic statement, but the numbers of tens of millions of reproduction that many YouTube channels have achieved in a few years, normally, it is almost impossible to get them with a blog.
But it is easier to convert: however, in the video medium, you have it much more difficult to get clicks (which is the mainstay of income in almost all formulas). In the written text the click is much more natural because the link is right there, in the video you have to ask the user to perform the action. This requires you to motivate him much more to do it and so that he doesn’t forget at the end of it at the end of the video.
If you go on YouTube, create a blog too: if you decide on fantastic YouTube, but yes or yes also create a blog in which you also publish your videos and where you get subscribers in email. So you become independent from YouTube, your subscribers will be yours. You can even consider hiring the transcription of your videos to blog posts and capture traffic from that side as well.
It is also important to emphasize that a blog and a YouTube channel complement each other perfectly.
