How To Earn Money With A Website
Are you passionate about a subject or love a hobby? Would you spend money on buying anthing for your interest or passion?
If so your passion or interest could start making you money. How cool is that!
In this post I will discuss how to earn money with a website, that is by creating a niche website.
A niche website is targeted at a “small” group of people who all have the same interest. This site could be anything from specific types of dog bowl for your dog or to a specific bait used for fishing a particular fish.
This can be a lucrative online business, especially if you use an affiliate marketing model (create link to explanation in other post)
Where do You begin with your niche site
Your first step towards creating a niche site will be to create a name for your website (domain name), as a rule this name should have connections with your interest or passion.
The technique most people use is to base their name on a word or phrase involved with their subject. If it is keyword/keyphrase (a word/phrase which people type into a search engine when they are looking for a review, a product or some other information) all the better.
Once you have a name to hand you will need to approach a company where you can buy your name (domain name) and build your website on their server (hosting). Websites can easily be setup these days, look at the ads on tv showing how simple this is to achieve. . .
Create content for your niche site
Once you have created your domain name and website the next step is to create content for your site. This means that the the interested party will; having searched google with their keyword or keyphrase want to read your reviews and recommendations on your chosen niche.
But don’t forget to keep up your content and add new articles, on a regular basis. Once your site is running you will then need to make sure your search engine optimisation is up to date.
Start marketing yourself with all the social media and then once the people (traffic) arrive at your website you could then consider how to monetize the site.
To surmise These are the main points
- Create a name for your website (with a keyword research tool)
- Find a host for your website (also register name)
- Buy this name (if it is available)
- Setup your site (preferably with WordPress)
- Write content
- Find Affiliates
- Wait for Traffic
