I’ll be honest with you, the first part is very easy, the second part is very difficult. You’ve all seen the ads though. Internet marketers love to tell you how you can earn huge amounts of cash while you sleep. I always thought I would settle to learn how to make money while I was awake. Lets start with “How do I start my own website”?
Its very easy to start your own website. I’m going to be as straightforward and simple as possible. First you need a webhost. There are many to choose from but, not to worry, most of them offer 0% downtime, and pretty much the same services and applications. Its also very inexpensive. You can get a top host for less than $45 a year. That includes your domain name, unlimited space, emails, autoresponder, and many site creation applications.
The first thing you will probably do with your web host is create your domain name. Then you will begin to create your website. Don’t worry, you don’t need to know html to create a successful site. Most hosts will offer at least three programs to create your website. In these types of programs you usually pick a theme and then gradually plug in some content. Don’t feel you have to have the whole site done immediately. Most successful sites start bit by bit, a little at a time.
That’s really all there is to the first part. Get a host, use the host program to create a website. It really is easy. You don’t have to be a tech genius at all. Most people can create a basic website in just over an hour.
Now we come to the hard part. Making millions while you sleep. For this part, I will give you the basic idea. The reason marketers say “while you sleep” is they are referring to how automated internet income can be. Here are a couple of ways to start to make money with your new website.
Most of the ways to make money with a website revolve around one thing. Getting people to do something. People visit your website and click something. It could be a purchase, or it could be as simple as leaving their email address. People usually start with Google Adsense. You put a column of Google ads on your website. Google matches the ads to your content. If someone clicks on a AdSense ad, you get a commission.
Another method is affiliate marketing. You can set yourself up as an affiliate marketer. You put ads or links on your website and if someone clicks and makes a purchase, you get a commission. Two very popular affiliate agencies are Clickbank and Commission Junction. These companies offer thousands of products. If someone clicks your links and buys the product, you make money.
Another good method is called CPA. You are getting paid to get your visitor to complete and action. It could be as simple as getting someone to visit a new website. To investigate this type of marketing further, I suggest you Google “Maxbounty”.
Will you make money while you sleep? Its quite possible. Last week I made over $100. While I took out the trash. In any case even if you don’t make millions you will probably make some money depending on how hard you work at it. There are also many other benefits of having your own website. Why not start right now. Ill bet its one of the best forty dollars you’ve ever spent.
