Above are just a few examples of the many profitable websites out there. Make no mistake, although making a few thousand dollar monthly is not really that hard, there are many who are not successful and did not make any money from their website. However, making money through your own website will take skill, knowledge, discipline and patience.

 

But what about the technicalities of designing and developing a website?traffic money

There are plenty of information in the internet on website design and development. You can either pay to learn or even get free tutorials in youtube. You will need some time to learn, research, trial and error but creating a website is not the tedious and hardest part. The hardest part of building a profitable website is to gain traffic. Gaining traffic means to have sufficient number of visitors to your website to start making money.

 

Secrets of a successful website

A lot of people thought building a successful website means :

          Find a product ⇒ Create a website ⇒ Start making money

That is so so wrong. Nobody will make a purchase if they do not trust in you or your website. Let me reverse engineer the process of building a profitable website :

          Before making money, you have to gain traffic.

          Before gaining traffic, you have to gain trust.

          Before gaining trust, you have to help people.

          Before helping people, you have to promote your website.

          Before promoting your website, you need to create a website.

You got the idea now? This is exactly what I am doing right now. I created a website; promoted it and that’s why you are reading this; trying to help you achieve your goals; gaining your trust by providing important, correct and reliable information; gaining traffic by having enough visitors like you; and finally start making money.

I will be covering each and every step listed above.

 

Reliable resources

The internet is full of scams, there are plenty of services offering to help you at a “discounted” price. They will claim that they can improve your Google search ranking, they can increase your traffic by certain percentage, they will promote your website to their 10 million social media fans, etc. You have to do your research before engaging to any paid services.

Wealthy Affiliate is one website you should visit. Their objectives are to offer courses, online seminars, discussions, online workshop, etc. A very reliable and can be very helpful especially or those who do not have knowledge in building a website. The only problem with this website is that the numbers of their reading material can be over-whelming for some.

But the most precious thing about Wealthy Affiliate is their members. They have successfully build up a community that is amazingly helpful and supportive, everybody is ready to help everybody in any problems relating to building a successful website. I myself cannot believe the support I got in-terms of technical advise and moral support. By the way, Wealthy Affiliate is where I got the knowledge and the courage to pursue my online business.

Go visit their website wealthyaffiliate.com, first subscribe to their free membership. You will have full access for seven days. So within these seven days, I want you to study what they can offer, read their online courses as much as possible, participate in the discussion rooms, ask any questions you have in mind – you will be surprised that answers actually come back almost instantly, just go around all the sections, trust me it is worth your time. Only if you feel that they can actually help you further, then only you pay to be a premium member.

 

I hope you have a better idea of what it takes to build a successful, profitable website. Keep track on our new posts as I will be covering each and every step of building a successful website.

    Great website! And the one thing I find hard is being patient. I know I need to do the….wait for it…..wait for it……wait for it….. but it’s so hard and easy to get anxious and discouraged. Your posts help me look at it with a different light.

    First of all Axton, I have to say well done on building a website so graphically complete, and on possibly the wackiest idea ever: people’s dreams. I bet when you first started talking about it, you must have raised some eye brows, but in fact I think you have succeeded in full. I must admit, initially I could not see where the concept of gathering ranks of volunteers was taking you in terms of business plan, but then I landed this website building page and I understand your approach. I’m just wondering how long since you have launched this project, and how successful it has been so far. Have you had many subscriptions, are people really prepared to volunteer their skills and expertise for nothing in return? Sorry, I don’t mean to sound sceptical, I am just wondering.

    Very cool post. I really enjoyed your step by step progression of the secrets of creating a successful website, making a website that people actually want to read can be difficult but can really pay off in the end! I think most readers know when a blogger is really trying to help other people or just trying to get their money, passion is key when it comes to pulling in traffic.

      I agree with you all the way Maggie. Making a website that people want to read is difficult, getting people to actually read it is even more difficult. And yes, writing with passion will definitely pull those two nearer together.

    Wow! Those websites are earning a lot of money! Some don’t even look that fancy but I guess it all depends on content and what they provide to their users rather than just looking cool.
    I’m a current member of Wealthy Affiliate and I’ve on been with them for a month and a half. I have learned so much and the online courses are so easy to follow that I already completed the Certification Course and have my site fully functional already. I even started making some money! I agree that the people are one of the best benefits of Wealthy Affiliate because they all come from different background and have different expertise so if you have any question there’s bound to be someone who knows the answer and who would be happy to provide you with it and help you out. I’m really loving the community and I highly suggest anyone to check it out. There is a free 7 day full member access where you can check out all the resources for free so you can try it out and see how you like it. It was an easy decision for me to go premium and I’m so happy I did. Now I can blaze through all the material and learn faster!
