How Can You Make Money with Google Web Stories

Welcome to my Web Stories Made Easy Quick Start Course! This is the sixth article and we will be diving into they various ways you can make money from Google Web Stories!

Now the million-dollar question, how do I get filthy rich?

Well, it's a little hard to directly monetize Google Web Stories, they are better at...

I said show me the money!

Simmer down there!

As I was saying, it's not easy to directly monetize web stories but there's a few things you can do.

You can always insert ads into the web stories themselves, there's a few different methods from external ads you sell yourself to Google's own network of Ad Platform ads, and even MediaVine soon.

That said, they don't pay very well, especially if they are anything like traditional AMP ads, and even MediaVine says not to get your hopes up.

That's a bummer.

True, but you can also use your web stories to promote products through affiliate links. As long as your story is a good story, Google has said they are fine with it using affiliate links to point to places to buy.

This would also work if you had products or services of your own to sell. Google Web Stories would be a great place to drive awareness of them.
