HOW TO START AN ONLINE STORE

start-your-own-online-store-on-wood

Starting an online store has advantages over having a physical storefront: there’s no rent to pay, and you can reach millions of customers from the comfort of your own home. To have a shot at success, however, it’s a good idea to put as much thought into starting an online store as you would for any other business. You’ll need a great product, a user-friendly website, and a solid marketing plan. Read on to learn how to get started.

 

STEP ONE – DEVELOPING YOUR PRODUCT AND BUSINESS PLAN

 

  1. Decide what you want to sell

If you want to start an online store, you probably already have an idea for a great product to sell. Keep in mind that certain things are conducive to selling well online, while other items may be more difficult to sell when they can’t be viewed in person. In any case, you should believe passionately in the value of your product – otherwise, it will be hard to connect with customers. Here are some questions to consider:

  • Is it a physical product that needs to be shipped, or is it a digital product that can be sent through the Internet?
  • Are you going to have an inventory (more than one) of each product, or will they be one-of-a-kind (e.g. artwork, vintage items)?
  • Are you going to want to sell a wide variety of products, or do you plan to specialize, like selling just t-shirts or books?
  • Are you creating the product yourself? If so, make sure you’ll be able to keep up with demand. Form a relationship with a reliable supplier.
  • If you don’t plan to make the product yourself, you’ll need a good manufacturer. Research different companies to find the one that works for your business idea.
  • Decide how your product will be shipped. Create a plan to ship the product from your home efficiently, or work out a storage and shipping plan with a warehouse. You could also look into drop-shipping if the product is being manufactured by a third party.
  • You are going to be intimately involved with your product or service. In order to effectively spread the word and market your store, you are going to need to socialize with people from this industry. Make sure the product is something you can get behind for the long haul.

 

  1. Find a niche

Knowing what product you want to sell is only part of creating a successful online store. You’ll need to figure out what differentiates your services from all the other similar services people can choose, both in person or online. Why should a customer buy your hand-knit sweaters when they have 100 other online shops to choose from?

  • Size up the competition. Don’t just jump into selling a certain product line until you’ve looked at the websites you’ll be competing with. Consider the main online marketplaces you plan to advertise your products; and check out the competition within those portals.
  • Offer something truly original. If you’re selling handmade crafts or works of art, the originality of your work may itself be the draw that sets your product apart. Try to strike a balance between something that is highly original and also has general appeal.
  • Offer expertise. Perhaps the quality that sets your company apart from the rest will be your expertise on the type of product you are selling. Maybe you’re a former baseball pro selling a line of baseball gloves, for example. Make your passion and expert knowledge part of the package.
  • Offer a user-friendly purchasing process. Even if your product is very similar to other things for sale online, you can set your store apart by making the shopping experience fun and easy. Make sure your website is easy to navigate and fun to share. Be responsive and provide great customer service where others don’t.

 

  1. Test the waters by selling your items on a small scale

In the real world, it’d be wise to try selling your products through other, low-commitment avenues (consignment, flea markets, craft shows, etc.) before taking the plunge and starting an entire store. The same is true for selling online. Try selling your items individually on eBay, Craigslist, Half.com and the like. Here’s what you’ll want to look for:

  • Who is buying your product? Offer a discount coupon or free gift if they answer a brief survey. Find out where else they shop online.
  • How much are they willing to pay? Experiment with different prices.
  • How is customer satisfaction? This is a good time to test how well you can get your product to the customer. Are you using good packaging? Is the shipping method reliable? Are they happy with their product? Did you describe it well?

 

  1. Make a business plan

Before you start the process of opening your online store, take the time to draw up a detailed business plan, whether or not you’re planning on getting outside funding from investors. It will help you plan the steps you’ll need to take to make your business successful. Figure out your cost of operation and map out a marketing strategy. You’ll want to take these factors into account:

  • Production costs, whether you’re creating your product yourself or contracting with a manufacturer.
  • Shipping costs.
  • Taxes.
  • Employee wages, if applicable.
  • Fees for reserving your domain name and web hosting service.

 

  1. Register your business according to your state’s laws

When you’re ready to make things official, you’ll need to come up with a business name and fill out the necessary legal and tax paperwork to register your business.

 

STEP TWO – BUILDING YOUR OWN ONLINE STORE

 

  1. Register a domain name

Choose a name that’s short, catchy, and easy to remember. It should also be unique, since the most obvious names are already taken. Look up a domain registration company and try different names until you find one that satisfies you and isn’t already in use.

  • If the name your heart is set on is already taken, get creative. Spell numbers out, add a small extra word or try hyphenation.
  • The domain registration service will provide suggestions for close alternatives if the name you want is taken.

 

 

  1. Choose a web hosting service

It’s worth finding a good service for your website, since the site is the backbone of your online store. If it’s finicky, sales will certainly suffer. Free web hosting services are available, but since you’re selling products online, you’ll need to pay for a service that offers the options you need.

  • You’ll need enough space for growth if your business does well.
  • Choose a hosting service that allows for customization if you’re planning on doing your own programming.

 

  1. Design your websit

Either design the website on your own or hire a web designer to create it for you. The emphasis should be on showcasing your product and making it as easy as possible for customers to make a purchase. Don’t fall into the trap of making the website too flashy – the more straightforward, the better when it comes to online shopping.

  • Include a way to gather email addresses, so you can send advertisements and special offers.
  • The customer should have to make no more than two clicks to check out with a product.
  • Choose just a few colors and fonts to use.

 

  1. Choose e-commerce software

This allows customers to view products and make a secure purchase. The software stores customer information and financial information. In some cases, e-commerce software factors into marketing, since it can be used to send emails to customers. Take a lot of time to research companies before making a choice, since the one you choose will play a huge role in your customers’ experience and your company’s success.

 

  1. Set up a merchant account

You’ll need to set up an account with a bank financial institution so that your customers can pay with credit cards. Going with a bank can be pricey, so many small online store owners go with PayPal as a less expensive option.

 

STEP THREE – USING AN ALL INCLUSIVE E-COMMERCE SERVICE

 

  1. Research all-inclusive e-commerce services

If you don’t have the inclination to set up your own website from scratch, there are plenty of services that offer a platform for an online store you can set up in just a few hours, for a very low cost. This way you will not have to learn how to code or hire a web designer, and you’ll have all the tools you need to start selling your product right away.

  • All-inclusive services usually take a small cut from each sale you make.
  • The services have benefits, but there are also limitations, since you have to operate within their systems. Get familiar with the different services before choosing one. If you don’t find one that suits the business model you have in mind, reconsider starting a new online store on your own.

 

  1. Consider general e-commerce services

Companies like Shopify and Yahoo! Stores will allow you to set up professional-looking online storefronts when you ship your own inventory. Hosted e-commerce solutions go further to provide storefront design, secure payment, hosting, mailing lists, selling statistics, customers support. This is attractive for those who don’t want to do their own programming.

 

  1. Look into reselling products for a profit

Affiliate store services such as Amazon eStores LLC allow you to resell products carried by Buy.com and other merchants by writing reviews of products and focusing on a theme that makes consumers’ lives easier. Amazon eStores stores allow you to get running quickly, but don’t allow you to carry your own physical inventory.

 

  1. Take eBay to the next level

If you’ve already sold some stuff on eBay, and you’re confident that most of your customer base will find you there, then you can “graduate” to an eBay store to save money on listing fees.

  • If you haven’t used eBay before, this approach may not be for you, since it’s best to start with an existing customer base. Your customers will need to be web-savvy enough to feel comfortable using eBay.
  • Note that eBay tends to attract people searching for bargains and one-of-a-kind items.

 

  1. Consider Tips for general sales

Tips is an online marketplace where you can post one item or create an entire catalog for free. You upload some photos, describe the items and price them to sell. It’s free to post goods for months without having to update the listing. When the item sells and is $35 or less, it’s a 5% fee. If the item is $35 or more, the fee is 3%. On top of putting goods up for sale you can embed videos, blog about your products and services and connect to your twitter account directly from the site for free.

 

  1. Try Cafepress if you’re selling customized items

Cafepress is a service worth considering if you’re selling mostly t-shirts, and other stuff you can “stamp” with your unique designs, such as mugs, stickers, and buttons. Customers browse your store, order their stuff, and Cafepress processes the order and the items for you. You can start a basic shop for free, and pay a monthly subscription for more features.

 

  1. Sell crafts on Etsy

Etsy is a popular choice for people who make what they sell. There’s a 20 cent charge for every item listed, and Etsy keeps 3.5% of your sale price if the item is sold. You get paid directly and are responsible for shipping the item. You’re charged fees (depending on what sold) on a monthly basis.

 

  1. Try selling on Instagram

Instagram is world’s most rapidly growing social network with highly engaged audience that is great for selling fashion items, handmade goods and products for home. Upload pictures of your items for sale to Instagram and then sync your account with inSelly.com to create personal online shop from Instagram pictures. Payments will be powered by PayPal, service doesn’t take membership fees or sales commissions.

 

STEP FOUR – ATTRACTING AND RETAINING CUSTOMERS

  1.    Promote your store on Facebook and Twitter

Social media platforms are an important way for businesses, especially online businesses, to market themselves. Start an account and encourage people to “like” and “share” your store’s page to spread the word.

  • Offer incentives for customers to promote your store. You could offer a discount or a free giveaway for those who participate.
  • Be sure to keep the accounts up to date with information on new products and deals.

 

  1. Start a blog

Pairing your products with expert knowledge is a great way to attract more people to your site. If your product is fashion-related, start a style blog that features some of your products from time to time. Find a way to participate in online conversations related to the product you are selling.

  • Some all-inclusive services offer a blog feature as part of your “storefront.”
  • Feature other companies’ products on your blog, and ask them to feature yours in return. This is a common practice among small online vendors.
  • Send samples of your product to prominent bloggers or websites that do product reviews.
  • Do guest posts on other people’s blogs. For example, if you’re selling homemade cookie mix, debut your product on a prominent baking blog.

 

  1. Email customers about promotions

Use an email program like MailChimp to organize customer email addresses and send well-formatted email blasts informing customers about special deals. Don’t abuse this method of getting in touch with customers, though – they may end up unsubscribing if you send emails too often.

 

HOW TO START A DROP SHIPPING BUSINESS ON eBAY

Before I start, let me first tell you what drop shipping means. This is the question most persons will like to ask “What is drop shipping?”

So simple: Drop shipping is a business model that allows you to buy products individually from a wholesaler and ship them directly to your customers.

It’s very possible for you to start your drop shipping business with no money, no inventory, and no prior experience!

With a drop ship business, your success depends on selling products which are then shipped directly from a manufacturer or wholesaler to your customer. Your profit depends on the difference between the wholesale price and the retail price (what you sell it for). You can run your business in a variety of ways (physical store, catalog, website) but this article will focus on doing it through eBay.

STEPS

  1. Create a seller account on eBay. Part of your investment in this business will be in listing fees on eBay.
  • If you’re not familiar with eBay, read How to Sell on eBay
  1. Research drop ship companies, also known as suppliers. Choosing suppliers that are in the same country as your intended customers will likely make shipping easier. Use a directory or other drop ship source such as Worldwide Brands, Doba or SimpleSource – they do the work of finding legitimate suppliers for you.
  • Watch out for scammers who pose as suppliers but are really just middlemen themselves. They’ll take their own cut of the profits, thus reducing yours. If they require a regular fee for using their service, consider that a very bright red flag!
  1. Decide what you want to sell. It’s important to check whether there’s enough demand (and not too much supply) for the products you want to sell. Here’s one way to find out:
  • Go to eBay
  • Click “Advanced Search”
  • Enter product (e.g. Art decorating lamps)
  • Sort by “Price Highest First”
  • Select “Completed listings only”
  • Click “Search”
  • Make note of the best selling products
  1. Establish an account as a retailer with the supplier. E-mail, call, or send a letter asking how to become a retailer of their products and ask if they will drop ship to your customers. You’ll also want to find out if they’ll put a custom return label (with your store name and address) on the shipments, so that the customers assume you sent it.
  • Don’t be surprised if the supplier you contact for a retail account requests a tax ID. In order to purchase products at a wholesale cost, many will require this information.
  1. List the items on eBay. Upload images and descriptions from the suppliers’ websites. Make a detailed, professional looking listing. For better results, provide your own descriptions and pictures of the product you’re selling (if you have samples). The price should be low enough to compete against similar items, but high enough to give you a good profit, once you account for listing fees.
  • Read How to Advertise Effectively on eBay and How to List Items on eBay for tips.
  1. Contact the distributor when your items sell. Give them your customer’s shipping address. They will send the product directly to your customer. Follow up to make sure the shipment came on time, and as described.

HOW TO ESTABLISH AN ONLINE SHOP THROUGH INSTAGRAM

0050283

Instagram is a wonderful app for sharing your personal moments, but you can also use it as a tool for selling items. If you are hoping to reach the millions of potential customers on Instagram, this article will get you started on what can prove to be both an interesting and profitable venture.

 

STEP ONE GETING YOUR ONLINE SHOP STARTED

 

  1. Connecting your Instagram to inSelly

Decide what you want to sell. Think about items that will attract Instagram users, and research what’s already out there – remember that you’ll want your items to stand out as something fresh or different.

Most of the items being sold on Instagram fall into the Beauty and Fashion categories. These kinds of items are likely to be most successful, as long as you are offering something unique.

 

  1. Look for inspiration. Find a successful online store on Instagram, and note how it runs and what makes it work so well. Don’t copy its style or use its exact ideas, but let it serve as your inspirational example.

 

  1. Sign your shop up on Instagram. Choose a username that’s unique and memorable, but nothing too long or difficult to understand. Make it easy to spell, and avoid using too many numbers. You want your potential customers to find you easily.

 

  1. Use your shop’s logo as your profile picture. Add your store’s logo to your new Instagram account, and then set it as your profile picture.

If you don’t have a logo and can’t make your own, contact a graphic artist. You want someone knowledgeable and creative enough to make you a memorable and professional-looking logo.

 

  1. Edit your profile. Write a brief, polished, professional-looking description of your shop, with information about the items or services you are offering, and post it to your profile. And be sure to include your contact information! Instagram does not provide direct messaging, so you’ll need to make your phone number or email address available.
  • You can also download a messaging application, which will allow you to send and receive messages associated with your Instagram account. This might help, but you should still have alternative contact information available.

 

  1. Upload items and relevant information. Upload high-quality pictures of your items one at a time (not as a set), so potential buyers can comment on the photo of a particular product. In addition, upload important information like your payment methods and shipping partners. Your online Instagram shop is now open and running!

CONNECTING YOUR INSTAGRAM TO INSELLY

You can connect your Instagram to a site called inSelly.

  1. Sign in with your Instagram login and password.
  2. Add one additional tag to your Instagram pictures with items for sale. The hashtag is #inselly. All those pictures will automatically appear in your inSelly account, thus creating your own personal online shop.
  3. Fill in the “Personal Information” form. Add PayPal email to receive direct payments from buyers.
  4. Add the price and shipping cost to each of your item for sale.
  5. Put a link to your inSelly shop as a website in your Instagram account. When posting new sales offers comment “To buy click the link in bio” to allow your Instagram followers to buy items in just one click.
  6. Share the link to your inSelly shop with your friends and followers in all other social networks. This will allow them to buy your items.

 

STEP TWO – INCREASING YOUR BUSINESS

 

 

  1. Gain followers

Every follower is a potential customer. Do some research online to figure out how to get as many followers as possible. For starters, try:

  • Connecting your Instagram to your Facebook, Twitter, and/or Tumblr accounts. Use all of your available social media accounts to promote your shop.
  • Following random people, especially those you think may be potential buyers.
  • Being friendly and acknowledging all inquiries.
  1. Maintain an attractive photo gallery. Make sure your pictures are of the highest quality possible.
  2. Add hashtags. Online sellers often use hashtags like #forsale or #sale. In addition, you can use hashtags that describe the categories of your items. For example, if you are selling lipstick, you can use #beauty, #makeup, and/or #lipstick. Adding hashtags will earn your pictures more “likes.”
  3. Stay active. Do not neglect your shop. Update photos every day, and don’t hesitate to re-upload items.
  4. Convince others to promote your products. You can send an item to local celebrities or bloggers in exchange for these people posting and promoting your products on their feeds. You may reach many new buyers this way.
  • The best way to approach this is to leave a comment with your contact details on someone’s Instagram photo. Ask if you can send them an item.
  • You are most likely to be successful at this technique if you look for celebrities and other people who typically post gifts from Instagram Shops.
  1. Solicit customer feedback. Ask politely for photo feedback when your buyers receive their items. Upload any feedback, cultivating positive impressions about your business.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE WITH AFFILIATE

FIfi

Using affiliate programs to make money can seem like a dream come true. You are promised a lot of money for helping sell products from the comfort of your own home. This may seem like a get-rich-quick scheme, but nothing comes easy. With hard work and dedication, however, you can build a solid source of side (or even main) income.

 

STEP ONE – FINDING AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

 

  1. Understand affiliate marketing

Companies create affiliate programs to help push their products. When you become an affiliate program member—which is usually free—you will be given an affiliate link, you need to promote this link on your website or another site. When people buy the products through your links, you will get a commision. As a member of an affiliate network, you can choose to promote any of several thousand products. It is possible to make up to 50–75% of the profit on each sale that results from your promotion.

 

  1. Know what sets each program apart.

Affiliate programs are everywhere online, and it can be hard to tell them apart. Each program distinguishes itself by the products it sells. Some affiliate programs only require you to post links; others will ask you to pay money to learn about how to sell the product you are selling. As the latter type of affiliate, you can make commissions by getting others to pay—by bringing other marketers into the fold.                Beware of any program that asks you to pay money before becoming their affiliate member.

 

  1. Understand the usual pay models

There are a few ways that you can make money from online affiliate marketing:

  • Cost-per-click: you get paid a very low amount every time someone clicks from your content onto the advertiser’s site. This is good for high-traffic content.
  • Cost-per-lead: you get paid a low amount (but slightly more than cost-per-click) every time someone signs up or fills a form with the advertiser using a link from your content.
  • Cost-per-acquisition: you get paid a fixed or percentage-based commission every time someone buys from the advertiser using a link from your content. Cost-per-acquisition marketing is good for focused, high-quality content.

 

  1. Choose an affiliate program

First, you must decide which affiliate program to join. Affiliate programs often have a theme, such as gardening or weight loss, and you should find a theme that interests you. Look for a network with a lot of product codes that are relevant to your topic. Consider networks like Commission Junction, LinkShare, ShareaSale, Jumia, Clickbank, and Amazon. Remember, it isn’t really about the network – it’s about whether the network is relevant to the content of your website.

 

STEP TWO- AFFILIATE MARKETING ON YOUR BLOG OR WEBSITE

 

  1. Research a topic or niche

Choose a popular trend or market – something that a lot of people are searching for, and something that a lot of online readers will find interesting (See Google Trends).

 

  1. Use the Google Keyword Research Tool to break down your chosen niche into more specific niches

Weight loss is a popular topic, but it is too broad. People want to lose weight for many reasons: vacations, weddings, summer, the new year, birthdays, and other special events. Choose a specific niche, such as “weight loss for summer” or “weight loss for weddings.”

 

  1. Consider the search volume for your chosen topic

Find out how many people are searching for that topic by running a web search for, say, “quick weight loss.” The quotes will make your search specific, so that the only results will be sites that mention the exact phrase “quick weight loss.” Your search engine should list the number of search results that turn up for your query. Try to find a topic that turns up fewer than 5,000 results.

 

  1. Create a website about the topic that you have chosen

The key to succeeding with affiliate programs is to build a content-rich website with useful information built around a specific theme. Don’t just lazily throw up a quick site or blog and string a bunch of affiliate links all over your pages. You have to start by building credibility, and the best way to do that is to write about something you know a lot about.

  • If you know a lot about the newest smartphones and tech products, try setting up a site that reviews and catalogs new products.
  • It’s also a good idea to own the products you promote so that you can appear more credible to your audience.

 

  1. Find affiliate codes and paste them into your site

Once your site is well-established and respected for its content, you can begin to link out to affiliate programs. Search the various affiliate networks and look for products that relate to the theme of your website. Grab the affiliate code from your account and paste it into your site. As people visit your site and click these links, you can begin earning money from the referrals in your articles.

  • Mention products in your articles or blog posts, and use the affiliate code to link out to each product. Use your articles to subtly convince readers that these products or services are worthwhile. Do not sell too hard.
  • Send out an email newsletter with product links. You can set up a pop-up that prompts visitors to your website to sign up for your newsletter.
  • Avoid sending out spam. If you send out daily newsletters or aggressive messages, your emails may be flagged by spam filters, and your visitors may even unsubscribe.

 

 

 

  1. Avoid hard-selling

The key is to subtly recommend products and services that fit in with what you are writing about in your content. If you try to market your affiliate products too aggressively, you may mar the credibility of your site.

  • Try not to come off as a salesperson. Present yourself as a knowledgeable, trustworthy third-party reviewer. Readers can be wary of online marketing tactics, and they may be more likely to click links if they don’t think you’re trying to sell them anything. Let the interested folks click, and don’t force anyone to click on the ad.

STEP THREE AFFILIATE MARKETING WITHOUT A WEBSITE

 

  1. Promote affiliate programs through article marketing

Write articles on a given product and find free places online to post them, such as review sites and article directories. Be sure to check if you are allowed to include an affiliate code link to the product you’re promoting. Some sites only allow you to link out to a non-commercial website.

  • Use strategic keywords in your articles. Place links in the headline, the first few sentences, and throughout the body of the article to attract the search engines.
  • Research long-tail keywords to target. If you are selling a weight-loss product, the phrase “weight loss” will pair you with tons of competition. Instead, break your topic down into more specific phrases like “lose weight in two weeks” or “lose weight for wedding.”

 

  1. Locate online communities relevant to the affiliate you are promoting

This might include forums, discussion boards, chat rooms, and blogs. Post often on the forum, and build a good reputation among the community members. Once people trust your judgment, you can start to include affiliate links in your posts. Do not simply spam the forums with product codes. You should sprinkle the affiliate links within genuinely useful content.

  • Review member policies on every community website. Verify whether you are allowed to post affiliate links to a site. Some online communities may prohibit affiliate links and consider the links advertising spam.
  • Review your account settings on every website. If you belong to a forum or discussion group that requires you to register for an account, you may be able to take advantage of a signature box in which you can post affiliate links. You can choose to display the signature box each time you reply to or write a post on the website.

 

3.Write an e-book on a topic that is related to your affiliates

For example, if you team up with an affiliate that sells fitness equipment, you may want to write an e-book about different workout techniques that involve the fitness equipment. Embed affiliate links into sections of your e-book. For example, if your e-book is about fitness, you can write about the importance of wearing appropriate running shoes during your workout, then embed affiliate links for a specific brand of running shoes that you recommend to your readers.

  • Choose a topic you are knowledgeable about. You may earn more from your affiliates if readers gain value from the information you are providing.
  • Include affiliate banners and pictures within your e-book. Banners and pictures that contain affiliate links may catch the eye and draw clicks.

Building a website and attracting traffic to earn advertising revenue is a proven way to earn money online. However, for those who do not want the trouble of creating or maintaining a website, there are ways to make significant amounts of money online without one.This article covers a few of the more common ways of doing this.

STEP ONE – SELLING WHAT YOU KNOW OR CREAT

 

  1. Teach online classes

Certain websites allow skilled or knowledgeable people to record lessons that others can pay to view. The teachers then can participate in forums to help their students through difficult parts of their content. Doing this not only allows you to share your skills with other people, but also earns a steady stream of income if many people participate in your class.

 

  1. Sell your hand-made goods online

People love buying interesting crafts and hand-made objects. Online stores like Etsy allow creative and crafty people to make money by selling their products. Be sure to enter the market place with something that differentiates your product from other offerings already available on the site.

 

  1. Sell your skills

There are a number of sites that connect skilled individuals with people in need of those skills. Whether you are a graphic designer, lawyer, or translator, you can find someone willing to pay you a reasonable amount for your work. Try searching for “freelance work online” and check out the first few results.

 

  1. Write an eBook

While it may seem like a daunting task to write an entire book, Ebooks do not need to be long to be informative and valuable. You just have to figure out what you know how to do that others would want to know and organize your information in book format. Of course the actual writing process will take time, but with online publishing services, publishing and selling your eBook will be a breeze.

  • Your eBook can be easily published using a variety of online publishing services, such as those hosted by Google, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. At each site you can submit your book and, once it is approved, will be listed for sale. Because your book is digital, the copies cost you nothing to sell.
  • Excluding time to write and convert to eBook format, you may earn a profit. However, average revenues from an ebook are less than $300. There are lots of competitors, many of whom spend hours promoting their books. So you may earn money from this venture, but don’t expect to bring in a huge profit.

If you find it difficult to write an eBook, then you can hire a writer to do the write up for you. You can go to fiverr.com and freelance to hire a writer with just a little money.

 

  1. Create YouTube Videos

YouTube allows content creators to earn money from advertising based on how many views they receive. The payout isn’t much, about $1–$3 per 1000 views, but that can add up quickly with as you post more videos and gain more viewers. An added benefit here is that you can create videos about whatever you want, as long as you think others will want to watch it.

  • Be aware that videos, like eBooks, are unlikely to bring in much money. You face an enormous amount of competition, and it’s pretty unlikely your videos will be viewed by anyone other than family and friends.

STEP TWO – SELLING YOUR TIME

 

  1. Complete online surveys

There is a market for people willing to take various types of surveys provided by organizations and corporations. The pay is relatively low per survey, but doing a lot of them will get you a reasonable payout. Be advised that some of these survey sites pay in gift certificates or other non-cash forms of payment.

 

  1. Become a virtual assistant

Another option is to become an online assistant for someone who lacks the time to complete simple tasks. These tasks could include writing emails, purchasing gifts, or making dinner reservations. This certainly could be among the most interesting ways to make money online. However, many of these assistants work full-time and this would require you to constantly be available for your employer during the day.

 

  1. Work for Amazon’s Mechanical Turk

This program allows you to quickly complete small tasks that Amazon’s automated computers are unable to do, such as describing the color of a shirt. Each task only takes a few seconds, but also only earns a few cents for the worker. With practice and focus though, some workers are able to make up to minimum wage.

STEP THREE – SELLING PRODUCTS FOR OTHERS

 

  1. Sell products on eBay on consignment

Selling on eBay doesn’t always mean selling your own stuff or even buying the products at all. Many sellers make a business of selling on consignment and keeping a portion of the sale price. This can be done from home or with a brick and mortar store. Another option is to become an eBay trading assistant and do consignments work directly for eBay. See How to Make Money on eBay Selling Consignment for Others.

 

  1. Become a wholesaler

A wholesaler buys products in bulk at a low rate and earns money by reselling that product to buyers at a higher rate. While many wholesalers have their own website, others run businesses directly through Amazon or other online retailers. Consider the market for your product, potential earnings, and inventory storage before deciding to become a wholesaler. See How to Buy Wholesale for more information on how to get started.

  • Sell products through drop shipping. This process is essentially a simplified version of wholesaling, but instead of taking control of the inventory yourself, you simply sell the products and allow a third party to fulfill your order for you. That is, when your item is purchased from the online retailer where you’ve registered it (eBay, Amazon, etc.), the manufacturer takes care of shipping your product to the buyer. This reduces the risks of leftover inventory and complicated logistics that are common in wholesaling.

STEP FOUR – PROMOTING AFFILIATE PRODUCTS

  1. Find an affiliate product to promote

You will act as a middleman between the producer of the product and the consumer without ever touching the product. Be sure to choose a product that you believe is in demand and underrepresented by current advertising.

  • Generally, you will get the biggest commissions on digital products. Digital products are defined as something that is downloaded directly to a customer’s computer after purchasing, like electronic books or software. Since there is no extra cost per unit, no inventory and no shipping, the commissions are much greater than on regular “physical” goods. The most common commission on digital products is 50%.
  • Sign up for an affiliate membership site as a reseller. This will allow you to build a residual income and the retention rate is much higher than just selling a product once and getting paid. After you sign up, you will get a unique affiliate link where you need to send people to purchase the product. Your affiliate link will have a special code that will tell the product owner that it’s you who referred the customer. The affiliate link code will allow your commissions to be tracked correctly and assigned to you.

 

  1. Get a domain name to redirect to your affiliate link

These can be purchased cheaply from a hosting website. It’s important to note that unlike having your own website you don’t have to pay for hosting which is usually more expensive than buying and registering a domain name. You can get a cheap domain name at Hostinger

  • When someone types in your domain in their browser, it will go to your affiliate link. The visitor will see the website with the product you promote, and the commissions will be tracked correctly.
  • The reason why you need a domain name is that it’s memorable and it makes you look more trustworthy. Affiliate links tend to be too long and arouse suspicion. For example, most people would rather click on the link bestwidgets.com as opposed to bestwidgets.com?reseller=john.

 

  1. Increase traffic going through your domain

In order to make sales, you need to get visitors to your domain name (which will forward them to the website of the product that you resell). You can pay for advertising and hope that your profit will be greater than advertising cost, or you can use free ways to generate traffic.

The most effective way to get free targeted visitors to your domain name is by writing and submitting articles. You can write short articles on the topic related to the product that you promote and include your domain name at the end. You will then submit your articles to various websites, and allow them to publish your articles as long as your link is included. Your articles may be published in many places on the Internet (depending upon quality and relevance of the article to the website owner), and will be advertising your affiliate link at no cost to you whatsoever. People will read your articles, like what you have to say and click on your domain name link ready to buy.

Questions most persons will like to  ask:

How do I receive the money I make online?

ANSWER

Some companies will send you a check, some use direct deposit, and others use PayPal. Some put funds you earn into an “eWallet” in your portal; then, when your balance reaches a certain amount, you may move the funds from your eWallet either onto a debit card or directly into your checking account.

Are there legitimate sign-up sites to get started in this?

ANSWER

There’s a site called OneMRKT that allows you to buy a really wide range of products (make-up, food items, bath products, etc) at wholesale prices, and then you can resell them at retail price. If you want to sell them in person you can, or OneMRKT also provides you with your own store on your website and automatically tracks your “inventory” so you can also sell online without having to make your own site or pay sign up/membership fees.

 

Warning

  • Keep in mind that in order to earn money on something like an eBook or YouTube videos, you’re going to have to invest a lot of time, and you may not make much money at all, even if you put in a ton of effort.
  • Be aware of scams on the internet. There are many people out there who will promise you easy money and then happily take yours. Look out for pyramid schemes or people/websites that ask for a registration fee and promise you hundreds of dollars for easy tasks like data entry. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH YOUTUBE

www.Gwealthmoney.com

You’ve probably heard stories about regular people earning money on YouTube and thought, “Hey, I can do this too!”. While earning thousands of dollars probably isn’t realistic, you can start earning money quickly, especially if you have a strong subscriber base. Follow this guide to get your videos monetized and start earning revenue off of those YouTube ads.

STEPS

  1. Set up and build your YouTube channel

Your channel is your personal presence on YouTube. Each YouTube account has one channel attached to it. A YouTube account is the same as a Google account, and creating a YouTube account will grant you access to other Google products, such as Gmail and Drive.

Create your account or use your existing one. Add keywords to help people find your channel. You can add keywords by navigating to the Advanced section of your Channel Settings. Make sure that your keywords are relevant to your content.

Your user name can also work for or against you. If it’s short, easy to remember, and original, people will be more apt to remember you. However if you are using an existing account, you can always change your username by editing it on your Google+ account.

 

2 .Add content

Try to upload content that is high quality, and isn’t super long. (This option can vary depending on what type of content you decide to upload) Also try to upload regularly and stay consistent with your uploads.

  • Even if your content isn’t great at first, keep at it. Practice makes perfect. Try to make each video better than the last. You will often learn as you go.
  • Improve your content by either using a better camera or trying better editing software or techniques. Also try to improve the way things are filmed. Use a tripod, have a friend help you or light your scenes better. It all helps for a better end product which in turn helps you get a better audience.
  • By uploading regularly you can help hold an audience. People are more likely to subscribe if you add content on regular schedule, and maintain that schedule as much as possible.
  • Make sure to tag your videos with key words that describe the content, as well as an eye-catching description. These will help drive people to your video from YouTube searches.
  1. Gain an audience

Building an audience is key to increasing your monetization. You need people to watch your ads in order to make any money off of them. There is no one secret to getting more subscribers, just make the best content that you can and they will come to you.

  • Keep uploading content and try to get people hooked. Send your video out on Twitter and Facebook. Share it with people. Distribute it elsewhere on the internet. Subscribers are essential to becoming a partner.
  • Interact with your viewers by responding to comments and making occasional videos directly related to viewer comments and questions. Connecting with your community will bring more members into that community.

 

  1. Monetize your videos

In order to start earning money on your videos, you’ll need to enable monetization. This means you are allowing YouTube to place ads in your video. This also means that you acknowledge that there is no copyrighted material in your video.

  • Go to http://www.youtube.com and click “My Channel” on the webpage.
  • Click the link called “Video Manager” on the top bar.
  • Click channel and Enable on monetization.

 

  1. Get at least ten thousand total views to start earning money.
  • You can monetize a video as it uploads by clicking the Monetization tab and checking the “Monetize with Ads” box.
  • To monetize a video after it has been uploaded, open your Video Manager and click the “$” sign next to the video that you want to monetize. Check the “Monetize with Ads” box.

 

  1. Set up Google AdSense

You can set up Google AdSense for free at the AdSense website. Click the Sign Up Now button to begin creating your account. You must be 18 years or older to create your own account. If you are younger than that, you will need an adult to help you.

  • You need either PayPal or a bank account and a valid mailing address as well as other information so AdSense can verify who you are and who to send the money to. You only gain money per ad click and a smaller amount per view but it adds up over time. This is why having an audience is key.

 

  1. Check your analytics

Once you have some videos online, monetized, and being viewed, you can check out the analytics on them to see how they are performing. Click the Analytics option in your Channel menu. Here you can view estimated earnings, ad performance, video views, demographics and more.

  • Use these tools to see how your content is resonating with your audience. You can change your content or your marketing if you’re finding that you aren’t attracting the users that you want to.

 

  1. Market your videos elsewhere

Don’t put your videos just on YouTube! Start a blog, make a website or post them on other video or social media sites. The more views it gets, the better. By sharing the link or embedding the video on the internet, you are increasing the chance of it getting noticed.

 

  1. Become a YouTube partner

YouTube Partners are YouTube members who have monetized videos with a large number of viewers. Partners gain access to more content creation tools, and can win prizes for the number of viewers they have. Partners also get access to much more community support and tips.

  • You can apply for YouTube partnership at any time through the YouTube Partner page. In order to gain access to the most powerful Partner programs, you need to have 15,000 cumulative watch hours for your channel over the last 90 days.

 

  1. Increase your YouTube revenue with Supp.me service

Supp.me allows to easily create polls & quizzes for free. Just create a question for your subscribers and invite them to answer it. The more people visit pages you created on Supp.me, the more you earn. This is a great way of getting feedback from your audience (you can ask for ideas for new videos and so on) and increase your earnings at the same time.

 

HOW TO MAKE MONEY USING WHATSAPP

images (59)

WhatsApp is quickly catching on as a versatile platform that can give industrious users a chance to pad their income. While the app itself doesn’t allow ads or commercial transactions, there are still plenty of ways to take advantage of its unique format and earn small sums of money here and there. Once you’ve got an account set up, you can promote your own small business, perform referral marketing for more established companies or handle other aspects of your professional life all from one convenient hub.

 

STEP ONE- MARKETING YOURSEL OR YOUR BUSINESS

1.Offer your services directly

Use WhatsApp to tell the world about a special product, skill or opportunity that you think would benefit others. Simply address the needs of your various contacts individually or send out a broadcast message to reach them all at once.

  • Use the app’s file sharing features to send out promotional graphics, videos and other assorted media.
  • Start a mailing list that’s only available to a specific set of your WhatsApp contacts.

2.Link to your website

Rather than simply mentioning that you run a lawn care business or offer personal training, let your contacts see what you have to offer for themselves. Displaying a simple link can help you get the word out about your professional enterprises, helping you generate attention and interest.

  • Create a custom signature for your messages that includes a link to your website or social media profiles.

3.Host an E-conference or seminar

Express your ideas on a larger stage using WhatsApp’s group video call feature. When users tune in, they’ll be able to see and hear you in real time. You can use PayPal to charge a small admission fee for viewing privileges, or only make the broadcast accessible to those who have paid dues to join a specific group.

  • Ideally, you should be able to present some kind of specialized knowledge or information.
  • Conducting seminars in multiple installments can increase the amount of profit you stand to make and give a wider audience a chance to join in.

4.Provide live customer support

WhatsApp person-to-person format makes it well-suited for handling questions and concerns discreetly. Customers can text, send images of faulty products or even video chat with a live representative to come up with solutions.

  • Respond to questions yourself or have a colleague or employee manage your business’s support correspondence duties.
  • Communication through WhatsApp is more fluid than programs like Facebook and Twitter, where comments might only be addressed a couple times a day.

 

STEP TWO – WORKING WITH OTHER COMPANIES

1.Advertise on behalf of a larger company

Some companies make it a policy to give out modest cash rewards to individuals who refer new customers. On the internet, this type of word-of-mouth marketing involves providing testimonials through direct messaging, getting users to click sponsored ads and sending links to special offers and events.

You may be able to find opportunities to collaborate with prominent companies like restaurants, retail superstores and hotel chains by messaging them and offering to share sponsored promotional content in posts on WhatsApp.

Try not to be pushy. Forceful advertising efforts won’t be met with appreciation, and may even get you reported.

2.Generate ad revenue

Though the app itself doesn’t allow ads, there’s nothing stopping you from sharing links via direct messaging. If your website or another that you’re in partnership with is supported by paid advertisements, drop a URL and encourage your contacts to check it out. Every time that someone opens the page, you’ll earn a small amount of money.

  • Keep link-spamming to a minimum. If all you ever do is send out URLs with no description or introduction, there’s a chance you may be mistaken for a spambot.

3.Contribute to local news stories

Pay attention to open calls from news networks and other publications for unique multimedia content to go on their WhatsApp feed. More often than not, these outlets will be willing to pay for high quality photos, sound bites and video footage of important breaking news stories. When you have something good, you can send it to the appropriate channels directly through the app.

  • Be ready to capture exciting and unusual occurrences that you think might be newsworthy.
  • Not all news outlets pay for outsider contributions. You may have to do a little research to learn which ones can net you a profit.

 

STEP THREE – EXTENDING YOUR REACH

1.Add as many contacts as you can

A good place to start is by importing all the personal contacts from your phone. After that, you can start expanding your search to include business connections, friends of friends and casual acquaintances.

  • In order to multiply your money-making opportunities, you’ll want to make sure that you’re able to hook as many eyes and ears as possible.
  • Encourage your close friends and associates to begin using the app so that you can expand your professional network.

2.Target interested parties specifically

With your audience now in place, you can begin zeroing in on who has the most to gain from your services. Tailor the content of your story feed to captivate the attention of these people, or communicate with them personally to really wow them.

  • Athletes, for example, will be more likely to want nutritional supplements, while new mothers may be interested in a seminar on how to manage time more effectively.
  • Analyze prospective customers based on the activities and interests listed on their social media profiles.

3.Build private groups

One of the most useful features of WhatsApp is the ability to create closed groups of users based on some common interest or classification. A well-structured group can serve as a pool of contacts who you can guarantee will be responsive to your branding and promotions.

  • Your groups should have a definite purpose—for instance, they might give customers a place to offer suggestions about things they’d like to see in the future or provide feedback about a new product line.
  • Become a part of as many different groups at one time as you want. This will give you the freedom to fine-tune your marketing strategies even further.

4.Cross-promote on other social media platforms

WhatsApp still doesn’t have the visibility of apps like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Fortunately, clever users can work through these other programs to build a bigger following. Make regular posts to keep your contacts updated, then guide them toward your WhatsApp profile for more information.

  • Let your friends on social media know about exclusive offers and other content that they’ll only be able to get by connecting with you on WhatsApp.
  • Use WhatsApp as an alternative to other person-to-person chat options like: Facebook Messenger or Snapchat.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY USING FACEBOOK

make money with facebook pix

Most people use Facebook to share photos and stay in touch with friends, but did you know that you can use it to earn money as well? There are lots of ways to earn money on Facebook, from using link-type advertising programs to creating a fanpage and then selling the posts. You can even use Facebook to advertise and sell your products. If you are interested in making money using Facebook, then check out this article!

STEP ONE – THE BASICS

  1. Make great posts

The foundation of any successful plan to make money with social media is good content, and lots of it. On Facebook, that means a stream of interesting links, images, and updates every day.

Search for a niche and fill it with quality content. It doesn’t have to be a niche nobody else is filling, but it should be specific enough that it’s clear to the casual observer. For example, maybe you’ll post content for cat lovers, mothers, or people with a certain political affiliation. If you plan to market a product with your account, be sure to link the product to your posts in some way.

Consider opening up another Facebook account and keeping it separate from your personal account. Use this account for your posts, and link them on your personal Facebook account to let people know about them. Depending on the approaches you use, you might even consider using multiple extra accounts. NOTE: Facebook will not allow multiple accounts using the same email and/or phone number. You may even get a request to verify a new Facebook account through a code texted to your phone.

Give it time. Let your account build up interest over time by continuing to provide fresh and relevant content every day.

  1. Make a commitment to earn

The only way to reliably make money using Facebook is through persistent work. Like any job, setting a schedule and sticking to it is the key.

  • Organize. Whatever strategy you plan to pursue, you’ll probably have to take care of several things every day to make it work for you. Plan out the order and times you’ll do them in advance.
  • Saturate your market. Making money with Facebook is more of a numbers game than anything else. Since marketing on Facebook costs nothing except time, you can market as much as you want – even to a point that would be prohibitively expensive any other way – and let the percentages and statistics work their magic one penny at a time.
  • Add aggressively. One of the best ways to increase the number of people looking at your page is to simply add people as friends as often as you can. Most won’t accept, but some will.

STEP TWO – MAKE MONEY THROUGH AFFILATE ADVERTISING AND OTHER LINK-TYPE ADVERTISING

  1. Find an affiliate program or other link-type advertising program

Affiliate programs provide you with a unique ID and marketing materials, and then pays you a commission based on how much business you generate. So try to find a Good Affiliate marketing website and start earning.

Most websites you’ve heard of offer such a program. Since there’s no cost to the site for letting you do this, practically anybody can become an affiliate for as many sites as they want.

Start with well-known brands. Amazon offers a competitive affiliate program that pays a percentage of any purchase a person makes after clicking through from your post, even if it’s not anything you advertised. Apple’s iTunes program has an affiliate program as well.

Add in smaller programs. Though less likely to generate money on a given day, you can diversify and gradually increase your affiliate revenue by offering a wide range of advertising services to many different businesses. You can also try Jumia if you are in Africa.

  1. Sign up

Once you’ve decided to market a company as an affiliate, search the company’s site and fill out the required forms. This should always be free, and usually only takes a few minutes.

Don’t ever pay to become an affiliate.

  1. Add accounts

Make a Facebook account for each affiliate program or group of programs you sign up for. This allows people to follow your pages based on the things they’re interested in, rather than having to sign up for one page full of all different kinds of ads.

As mentioned previously, you can use your primary account to repost things from the other accounts periodically, exposing those pages to the audience you’ve built.

  1. Promote your programs

Make posts for each of them daily, and maintain your accounts fastidiously. With luck, and a good central account with a lot of followers, your affiliate accounts will begin to get followers as well. Whenever anyone clicks your posts and buys something from one of your affiliates, you earn money.

STEP THREE – MAKE MONEY WITH AN E-BOOK

1.Write an e-book

E-books are just book-format publications that are distributed electronically, rather than printed on paper. Because there’s basically no cost to publish an e-book, pretty much anybody with an idea can do it.

  • Take it easy on yourself. Unlike a paper-and-ink book, your e-book doesn’t have to be any particular number of pages. In fact, most e-books that are written to generate income are more like e-pamphlets than whole books.
  • Choose a subject that will generate interest. Nonfiction is almost always a better choice than fiction. Oddly enough, e-books that tell people how to make money selling e-books are a popular option, and they apparently sell enough to at least offset the trouble of writing them.
  • Write in an area where you can claim some kind of authority. It’ll add cachet to your book. You don’t need to show credentials, but you should write about something you’re better at than the average Joe.
  1. Pick a publishing option

There are a few free ways to get your e-book published.

  • The most basic option is to save the book as a PDF file, and lock it with a password that you send to people who buy your book. Once the password is out there, anyone with the password can open the book.
  • Createspace is an Amazon.com service that allows you to publish e-books for free on the Amazon website. It offers better usage protection than the PDF method, but can’t be directly distributed from anywhere other than Amazon’s website. Createspace also has a number of paid services and options available. To maximize your Facebook profit, avoid using them.
  • ReaderWorks is a program that easily formats and published e-books in Microsoft Reader format, one of the most common e-book formats on the web. The Basic version of the program doesn’t offer any security, but it’s free and easy to learn. There’s a paid version of ReaderWorks that adds digital rights management (DRM) protection. Only opt in for the paid version if you’re going to be making a lot of books with it.
  1. Get your e-book online

Createspace will post your book automatically. If you published it on your own computer, you can sell it a few different ways:

  • Amazon will let you upload and sell your e-book as a Kindle book for free. (Kindle is the brand name of Amazon’s popular e-reader product line.) This option is calledKindle Direct Publishing, or KDP.
  • On the plus side, KDP is fast and very flexible. You can publish your book in about 5 minutes, and set sale royalties for yourself as high as 70% (with Amazon taking the other 30%).
  • On the other hand, KDP does not publish your book for download outside of the Kindle marketplace. Readers who don’t use Kindle won’t be able to browse and purchase your book.
  • eBay will let you list items for sale at a set price. By offering a stock of “copies” of your e-book available for purchase on eBay, you can turn the venerable auction site into a de facto bookselling hub.
  • The advantage of eBay is its simplicity. Anyone with access to the site can potentially purchase a copy of your book – no special gadgets or software required.
  • The downside is the cost. eBay sets fees for just about everything; they only get worse when you set a fixed price point for purchases. Some of the fees are percentages, but others are flat, which can really bite into your profit margin if you’re not careful.
  1. Sell your e-book on Facebook

If you were wise and wrote a book that caters to the audience you’ve been building up with your primary account, you’ve got a receptive, ready-made audience for your sales pitch.

  • Advertise it several times a day, both blatantly and at the end of other posts. Be creative and try to engage your readers. Get them excited about reading your book.
  • If you have other accounts (such as affiliate accounts), advertise your book there, too.
  • Always provide a link for reader to click to visit the page where they can purchase your book.

STEP FOUR – MAKE MONEY USING FACEBOOK PAGE

1.Create a Fan page if you don’t already have it

So you don’t have a fan page yet? well you will need to create one now because we’re talking about making money from Facebook fan page here. Create a fanpage about whatever you’re interested in, like fishing, funny page, traveling, etc.

2.Write good content

Write good content on your fan page and engage as many as users possible. Once your page starts getting good response and good amount of likes, you can move to next step

3.Create a Website Related to your Fanpage

Now create a website related to your fanpage topic if you can afford everything.

  • You can create free websites as well.
  • Add contents to website and post on your Facebook page to get visitors to your site.
  • Add ads to make money and make sure your website looks decent and not copied.
  • You should also add valuable content to your website on the regular basis to get more and more visitors.

4.Sell Fanpage posts

So you have a big Facebook fan page but still not sure how to make money from it. Selling posts on your fan page is the easiest way to make money apparently.

  • Sign up with Shopsomething.com and make sure you have minimum 1000 likes on your fan page.
  • Add your fan page to ShopSomething and confirm you’re the owner of the page.
  • Set a price per post for your page. Now this is important, make sure you set the price correctly because No one would buy posts on your page if the price is too high.

STEP FIVE – MAKING MONEY USING FACEBOOK MARKET OF POSTS OR FANPAGES

1.Become an author of Facebook Posts Market or Facebook Fanpages

Market and earns on Selling Posts or Fanpages

Installation guide is included in both scripts (step by step). If you don’t know PHP / HTML, is possible to install it for you. Administration doesn’t required coding skills so everybody can manage and provide powerful Facebook Markets.

HOW TO CREATE A WEBSITE AND EARN MONEY

images (58)

Creating a website can be lots of fun. If you do it properly, you can even use it to earn money. This article will teach you not only how to create a website, but also how to earn money off of it.

In a Hurry?

The best way to earn money from a website is to find a niche target market like best tattoo designs, final exam study guides, or movie trailer critiques. Sign up for Google AdSense in order to receive money from ads on your page. Always make sure to update your website regularly with new content to keep your audience engaged. For suggestions on how to create a domain name and maximize your revenue, scroll down!

STEP ONE – CREATE A WEBSITE

  1. Define your goal

In order to attract any investors (in the form of advertisers) you must have a place for them to sell their wares. Attracting advertisers must be your primary goal, as that is what will make your financial aspirations a success.

Know what advertisers or ad placement algorithms are looking for in an advertising venue (i.e., your website): generally, it’s potential buyers with disposable income who visit your site in significant numbers, and would be interested in products that are closely related to the content on your site.

What you want in a site, then, is to attract—and keep—a lot of visitors. The longer they stay, the more likely it is that they will eventually leave your site by clicking not on the back button, but on your advertiser’s links.

  1. Find a market

To generate the most traffic, and thus the most revenue, be selective in your target market. While every demographic has its strong points and weak points, studies have shown that younger people are generally more optimistic and more adventurous—and thus likely to click on an advertisement more readily.

Keep in mind that the goal is clicks, not sales: that’s what generates your revenue. Once the visitor has clicked out of your site, it’s up to the merchant to make the sale. You get paid, regardless of the outcome.

Search the web for trends and ideas for websites, and include the year in your search so that you avoid wasting search results on what was hot in 2006. For example, searching Google for “website ideas 2012” returned nearly a billion results. From there, it’s just a matter of combing through to find ideas that pique your interest.

  1. Secure a domain

One good way to proceed is to secure a “.com” domain, find a host (many domain registrars will also host sites), and build your own site. This has the advantage of being the most flexible in terms of design and installation of custom code.

Alternately, you can sign up with a service such as Blogger, from Google, or WordPress—both of which will not only let you put your site name in front of their service name (e.g., gwealthmoney.wordpress.com), they will give you that and a website for free. The advantage, aside from that, is that Blogger and WordPress give you a great number of really well-designed templates to make your site look visually awesome. The downside is that generally takes having a “pro” version (i.e. paid for) before you can do any serious customizing.

  1. Build your site

Using the templates provided, or a site of your own design (or from a designer), put together your website. What you do will be based almost entirely on the market you are attempting to reach. Again, though, whether you are ultimately offering a personal service, like “Cleavon’s Auto Repair Site,” or a total web-centric site like “Sara’s Mouth-Watering Recipes,” the goal is to keep people on your site. That means content is king—same as it ever was.

If you’re offering a service, your site could have content specific to your specialty. Cleavon, for example, might have some basic articles on changing oil, fixing a flat, or a FAQ about all those little sounds a car might make. Sarah could feature, along with recipes, information such as weight and measure conversion, the differences between types of flours, and anecdotal tales of kitchen disasters and successes. In both cases, going beyond the basic service provided gives visitors a reason to stick around—and click on ads!

  1. Keep it fresh

Don’t post one or two articles and call it a day. Remember that this is your income stream we’re talking about developing, so think of it as your job—part time or full time, you have to devote some time to it every day if you want to see the paychecks come rolling in.

The more you write, the more interest your site will hold. The more interest your site holds, the more people will follow it. and more importantly, the more relevant your site will appear to the ad placement algorithms. More ads = more clicks = more money. Never lose sight of that goal.

 

STEP TWO – START ADVERTISING AND PROMOTION

  1. Sign up for Google AdSense

AdSense will place ads for goods and services that are relevant to your site’s visitors, based on the content of your site. You get paid every time an ad appears on your site, or an ad is clicked on. You get paid a very small amount for each impression (view) or click. Therefore, the more traffic you generate, the more clicks and impressions you will have, and the more money you will receive.

  1. Promote your site

Every time you post, every time you make a change, every time you change a period to an exclamation mark or correct “teh” to “the,” let the world know via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and all the rest of the social media world. The key is to spread the word.

  • Have accounts on all of the above, and make sure you have prominent links to your website on all of them.
  • Start an email campaign as well. Once a week, publish a “best of my site” HTML email—frequent enough that people enjoy the content, but not so much that it becomes spammy.
  1. Pay attention to your metrics

Find which ads work best, and do more ads and pages like those. By continually refining your process, each visit will be a higher value for revenue generation. Always remember: the longer they stay, the bigger your paycheck will be. Good luck!

  1. Sign up as an affiliate

Companies use affiliate programs to boost their online sales, and most of these affiliate programs are free to join. Every time a visitor buys an item through the affiliate link on your website, you earn affiliate commission
