In today’s world, there is no business that can truly compete without a website. So, it goes without saying, if you are thinking of starting your own business, you need a website. In fact, it should be built first. Then, I’m going to show you how to create a business from a website.
How long will this take?
The time span of creating your new business is going to be largely based on how much time you actually have to dedicate to building your business. If you’re working a full time job and have a wife and kids waiting when you get home, you may be able only to steal a little time after they’re all put to bed. That is how I built mine. I had incredible help from Wealthy Affiliate that made it easier than I ever imagined. Of course, then, even with help, it’s going to take quite a bit longer than someone who is retired or works part time or has no job, even. These folks can put way more time into it. The main thing is do not expect to get rich overnight. Forget the “get rich quick” deals you hear about. They’re not real. You need to treat this like the real business that it is and if you’re patient and work hard the rewards can be tremendous. Six figure incomes are possible. But, you get back what you put in.
How can I possibly build a website when I can barely turn the computer on, you ask? That, my friend, is the easy part. These days there are companies that have website templates by the thousands and all you have to do is choose the one you want to use. The company builds them and sets them up and they are “move in ready”! In fact, to get you started, there is a company that will give you two websites for free and you can have it built in about 30 seconds! You’ll definitely want to go here for more information on that.
What Business Should You Build?
There are many ways to make money from your website. This is just a few.
- Affiliate marketing
- Adsense and other ad programs
- Amazon Products
- Relevant Advertisers
- Create your own product
Affiliate marketing is when you send someone to a website and they buy something there, you get paid.
Adsense are Google ads you put on your website sidebar and when they are clicked on you get paid.
Amazon Products can be linked from your website and if the visitor buys anything while on Amazon, you get paid.
Relevant Advertisers would be when you get folks that have something relevant to your website to advertise on your website and you charge them a fee.
Create your own product and sell it on your website.
The business I enjoy and feel has the greatest potential is affiliate marketing. Not only can you have products linked on your website, but, you may also offer memberships to various other websites like web hosting, for instance, that when someone joins, you’ll have a monthly residual income from. Once you have your website established, you can add the other income sources along with the affiliate marketing. Once you’ve set your website up, (go to the link above in “The Website” section to set it up for free in 30 seconds), you’ll be posting blogs about a subject you enjoy and linking companies and products to your blog that visitors to your website can go to and purchase a product. Then, those companies will pay you a commission.
The niche is the area of which you would like to base your website on. It’s always good to choose something you’re familiar with or have a passion for. You don’t want to tire of talking about it. To learn more about this in-depth, go to Choosing a Niche.
The Overall Picture
Once you know what your niche is, it’s time to start building content on your website. You’ll want to add pages introducing yourself and what you have to offer, pages on your product, and start blogging short blogs on different areas of your niche. You’ll want to keep it all relevant to the theme of your website. The more you blog and build content, the more people will visit your website (traffic). The more visits you get, the more Google will take notice and start moving you up in the ranking. Your goal is to get on the first page of a Google search. And this will lead to more traffic, which will start turning into sales and an income for you.
I know it looks overwhelming and you’re thinking there’s no way you could ever figure it all out. Well, it’s not really. Take it one step at a time, at your own pace, never moving to the next step until you fully understand the last step taken and before you know it, you’ll be a pro. But, I have even better news for you. I haven’t brought you here just to leave you hanging. I have THE place for you to go to get started. Right now! This second!
