One other important consideration is how to monetize our site. While Dino Space hasn't been designed to make a profit, it may be useful to try and recuperate expenses such as hosting fees. Some simple options to get you started:
- Cafepress.com/Spreadshirt—create merchandise with your site's logo on, and earn a percentage from sales. This can be prominently promoted on the site.
- Google Adsense—Advertisement blocks from Google on the site earn money on a per-click basis; alternatively, integrating a Google search feature provides a less obtrusive form of advertising.
- Affiliate Marketing—Become an affiliate of sites such as Amazon, where relevant products can be promoted on the site and a commission earned.
