Q: How do I make money from my site?

One option is to use an ad service or affiliate service:

You can also add a shopping cart to your site:

Another way to make money is to use the member subscription module:

Spruz offers a very useful add-on called the member subscription module.  This allows you to charge a fee/subscription to use your site or a certain area of your site.  To learn more about the member subscription module read "What is the member subscription module?"
