Making Money Online
Hello I am glad you found your way to this article. You are probably a motivated individual who has wanted to start making money online but you do not know where to actually start. I am going to breakdown the bare essentials of what you need to make money online. Please keep in mind making money online is a skill that must first be learned and then must be implemented. However, once the skills are put to work you can have a “money making site” for years to come. Lets jump right in shall we?
To make money online you will need certain tools just as if you wanted to build a house. The first thing I suggest getting is what is called a domain name or URL. You may be asking yourself well what is a domain name? A domain name is simply something that will be typed in the address bar to access your website. Choosing a domain name is pretty cut and dry but there are a few rules that you should follow.
When Picking A Domain Name
1. Always try to use typical spelling because using spelling like krazy for crazy can be confusing and drive away potential customers for the shear fact they could not find your website.
2. Try to get one with.com as opposed to.net,.org,.gov, and so on.
3. Do not use raw numbers in place of letters such as gr8 for great, the reason for this is because this can also drive away potential viewers of your website for the reasons listed in number one.
4. Keep it as short and concise as you can while still being able to pull people in.
Once you have chosen a domain name now would be a good time to start thinking about what it is you want your website to be about. Maybe you have a product you would like to promote or maybe you would like to promote another company’s or individual’s product and receive what is known as commission from it. Commission is simply the amount of money you will make off of a product other than you own. Commission usually ranges anywhere from 20% to 60%. Unless you’re buying the selling rights to a product which means you can make a full commission from a product that you did not create. Sounds almost too good to be true right? Well the upside is there is plenty of money to be made but the downside is it is costly to start up. My suggestion is to find a product that will give you a commission to get started.
So now you have a domain name and a product… what now? Now you need to find what is known as an HTML Editor. Do not let the name scare you because truth be told this is simply going to be similar to a program on your computer like paint or word that is simply going to allow you to create and edit your webpage! As for creating a webpage there are multiple ways of doing this. Some places offer a “ready to use page” that you can put your name on and it is ready to go online. This is completely up to you and really depends on if you are selling your own product or another person’s product. Keep in mind you can also pay somebody to create your webpage which will cost a little more than creating your own but will pay huge dividends because of the professionalism behind it.
Monetizing Your Website
This is what most people are interested in. How do you make money? Well now that you have a domain name, product, and webpage it’s time to talk about making money from it. I have always preferred marketing monthly billed products because that means I get a check every month. You may choose a one time fee, yet again this is completely up to you because this is your business. I am going to discuss two options of making money because they are the easiest for you and the most commonly used ones today by smaller websites. You can create a PayPal button that is linked to your bank account or you can use ClickBank which incorporates your information into the computer code that will pay you directly once they sign up for your product. Then once you have reached an amount and would like to withdraw they will actually send you check in the mail to you or your bank like a regular employer.
Getting It Online
The final step in getting this up and running for the world to see is by simply downloading a File Transfer Protocol which in laments terms is how to get this webpage from your computer to the web. Once you have that you can upload your webpage to the web and be ready to work on traffic generating techniques (simply driving potential customers to your page).
Making money online is not as easy and 1, 2, 3. You can not simply click a few buttons and be a millionaire. It takes time, patience, and effort in the beginning but after the work is done you can enjoy the benefits. This article is not meant to be followed to create a website but is simply to show that once a few steps can be mastered you can create a website and make money time and time again. I hope you enjoyed this general article on how people make money online.
