Having a beautiful website with a bunch of original content is super exciting.
But once you’ve been grinding away for a while, you may start feeling the dread of burnout.
The best way to fight that feeling is with some success. Especially financial success, which may afford you the luxury of hiring an assistant or someone to contract out a bit of the workload.
Here are a few ways you can make money from your eco website.
How monetizing your eco-friendly website makes you money
First you have to create the site, then make it something attractive to others, but the last (and definitely not least) step, is all about setting up your blog to make money for you.
There are a few ways you can monetize your eco-friendly website when you’re just getting started:
- Offering a product or service
- Affiliate marketing
- Display ads
Some people start a blog because it’s a great lifestyle business that lets you live and work from anywhere in the world. Some do it for the cash, and can make over $100,000 a year!
Here is the easiest way to monetize your eco-friendly website.
Monetizing a new eco-friendly website
One of the easiest ways to start making money with your blog is to become an affiliate for companies who products and services you already use.
But there are TONSSS of other companies offering similar programs.
Skimlinks is a great site for finding them.
You probably won’t make much money from affiliate marketing at first, but as your readership grows so will the number of purchases made through your links.
It’s tempting to sign up for a bunch of affiliate programs and spam the links all over your site, but all that’ll do is scare people off.
Just find companies that genuinely add value to your readers and the affiliate linking will be natural and beneficial for both parties.

Econus helps eco entrepreneurs build eco-friendly websites, so by linking the GreenGeeks affiliate link, you’ll be automatically linked to the place you need to go to build an eco-friendly website in 10 minutes.
