Making Money with Your Website
This is going to be a very short and sweet building, a social network in which video today, as it's a quick introduction version into our 12 day Christmas present gift to you guys for being such an amazing, amazing audience.
So we're here in our editor for the social network. What we're going to do is we're going to add Google AdSense on our profile pages today. So if we go here to home and we click our user profile data page, so this is our profile page. We're going to add Ads over on the sidebar today. Like you would typically kind of see ads. So to add Google AdSense into our social network, we're going to go over here to add apps, and then we're going to type in here AdSense. And you're going to see Google AdSense by Wix. You're going to click that and then it's going to load up and you're going to click add to site.
Once you've got it, you've got your actual Google AdSense right here. And you can determine what style of ad you have, and I'll show you how to do that right here. So you see this as kind of a, the wider format ad and its the square ad. So if we double click it, it'll pop up our options here and you could choose, you could see what kind of ad you'd like. You could either do a full text ad, an image ad or a text and image ad just like that.
And then you could come in here and choose the layout. So you could choose whether it's that square, whether it's the tall one. So the, the lengthy one like that, or a wide one, which based off of how we're adding here, it's not going to be wide. I'm going to go with square today, guys, for the ad sense.
You can choose your style. So it's font colors, the font itself, the size, the background, color of the ad, all that good stuff can be altered right there.
Now you guys may be asking, you know, why did I decide to show you this video? Well, I've had a couple people reach out and actually ask me how can I make money with a social network? Well, to be completely fair and honest with you, there's a couple of different ways you can do it. You can one either charge people to actually be a part of your social network. Although if you do that, you're going to highly decrease your conversions of people that turn into social network users, unless you have real value behind the reason they're paying.
In our day and age, there's so many different outlets to connect with people that are completely free, that don't charge you for that. So if you just charge for the ability to connect with other people on your platform for no real special niche or no real special value, it's not going to make it. It's just that simple and the truth behind the 2019 landscape of how we're going here and progressing in platforms, websites, and technology.
However, how social media giants like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, how all these different platforms make money. Although there's a myriad of different ways is ads. Ads is the number one way they generate revenue to their business, into their company. Now there's lots of ways you can do this. This is the Google AdSense method that I'm showing you today.
The other method is you could literally build your own in house system to where people will fill out requests to put ads from their business on your site, which is another method you could go with, which I may do like a little mini-series on after we get done with this full series, but for the temporary solution here, and for the way to actually start guaranteeing you start earning money on your social networks, as long as you have traffic that comes to your website is Google ad sense. And that's the most trusted way to add it right now, other than building your own in house system.
So you bring it in here, you double click it. And then what you can do is you press get started and it'll take you to Google itself, and it'll have you pick a Google account that you want your AdSense associated with. So whatever you want and your Google AdSense account, which is where all of your ad management revenue, all that good stuff will be housed, whatever Google account you want that connected to is where you'll choose this. And then you simply choose your account. And it'll walk you through the process of just connecting your Google AdSense account to this particular set of ads on your website. And it's very easy.
Now I did a full video, which I will go ahead and link down below of how to maximize the, make the potential of actually getting approved for your ads. So Google ad sense will not just give ads to any website. You have to be an established website first and foremost, you have to have established premium domain, which means you can't just have a free Wix domain two you gotta have Wix hosting three, you have to have solid content on your website. You have to make sure your website's in line with Google's policies and plans. So you cannot have a whole bunch of stuff that goes against Google's guidelines. You won't get approved for ads.
So ultimately the big thing here is though Google make sure that you're not just a scam website, just trying to get people to click on your ads. So you have to have some real substance behind your website for Google to approve you. And it's that simple. I mean, it really comes down to that. That's the truth behind it. Google just doesn't want a dinky website generating people, our traffic to it, to simply click an ad.
They want a website where people are getting value that are interacting, that are engaging, and there happens to be ads on the site. So if people do click them, that type of thing, Google just wants to make sure you're an established business. And you have true reason to be having ads on your website, not a sole website for the purpose of clicking ads.
That's as simple as it is to add Google AdSense to your social networking in Wix. This was more of a mini video.
