Going it alone: Adsense vs HP Ad program.

    I've started to look into my own site, but first of all I just wanted to clear something up.

    If you go it alone how exactly is revenue generated? At the moment all of my revenue is coming from the HP Adprogram (with a tiny bit from google Adsense).  I take it the Adprogram is just an HP thing? and if you go it alone all you are left with is the adsense option?

    What are the other revenue options away from HP?

    What's invovlved and how easy is it to setup?

    When you're running your own site, the options are as limited as your imagination. Some of the various ways you can make money include:

    -PPC/PPV/CPM adverts.
    -Affiliate networks (such as Amazon or eBay).
    -Niche affiliates.
    -eBooks.
    -Printables.
    -Email subscriber lists.
    -Selling real or virtual products.
    -Selling services.
    -Brokering offers for your audience.
    -Sponsored posts.
    -Social Media sponsored posts.
    -Reviews.

      This is the question I have always wanted to ask and did not.  Wish you would write a hub about how to put some of these things into place WryLilt.

      Hmmm. I'll think I'll stick with HP as there isn't anything on that list that can guarantee income in the way that AdProgram does.

        What do you mean by guarantee? There is much more of a guarantee with multiple income streams than with one.

          I agree and if it were not for Amazon ads my income here would be far less, even with dwindling ads.  I wish they would just leave them alone and let us earn.

          Yeah but the adprogram is the only one that's earning for me.  Its what they earn that matters to me, not how many streams I have.

          Absolutely it's basic probability, when it comes to online income you want a basket of remotes than one.
