Should I sell my own products or just become an affiliate?
One of the best ways to monetize traffic of a website is to sell products. It gives a higher amount of revenue as compared to merely having adsense ads slapped in.
There are two ways to approach settling products in a website - you either sell your own products or become an affiliate and sell the products of others. If you become an affiliate, you don't have to worry about product creation, delivery and such. Your only concern would be to promote the product itself. It is easier than creating your own product but it also generates a lower amount of income because you just receive a certain percentage from the sale as a commission.
Selling your own products in your website is a bit harder. You'll have to create the product yourself be in charge of the distribution and delivery of the product, and collection of fees from the customer. The advantage is that you'll be getting a higher amount of revenue because you're no longer merely earning commissions.
