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.
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.
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.
