To Start Your Own Website
I'm one of
those people that always wanted a website, but had no clue as to using
the internet. I could check my email and that was
about it. I never heard of ISP, FTP or all those
I discovered that I had the website making program Microsoft FrontPages
I was determined to learn something about html. Then
when I discovered I could earn some money by having a website I wanted
to start yesterday! And here I am, still don't know
hardly anything, but I'm running a website! So
believe me when I say, 'if I can, you can!'
are some basics to get you going:
topic. Decide what you want your site to be about.
Be sure to choose something that is very interesting to you so
that you keep your site new and exciting and your visitors returning.
Research, research, research! Get a lot of
information for your visitors to read. Add a lot of
content to your site, not just link exchanges. Search
engines (like yahoo and google) love content.
2.) Get web hosting and a domain name. The host is who holds your site on the internet and your domain name is www. What you want it to say .com. You can get free hosting, but these usually are not good for making money because the hosting company typically posts their own ads on your site and will not let you post any. Besides, who would take your site serious if you're not even serious enough to spend $7 a month on your own business.
your site. This is the fun stuff (if you're the
creative type). You may either do it yourself or you
could pay a professional to do it. If you don't
know any html then you can purchase a program like Microsoft FrontPages
or Dreamweaver and do it yourself. These programs
make designing a website a snap! You can also find
free web templates out there which have the basic design, you just have
to add the words.
Also many web hosting companies will offer website builders with
the purchase of a hosting package.

affiliates for your site. Now this is where the
'make money' part comes in. Being an affiliate
means that you are helping companies to sell their products.
Typically they will either pay you a commission on a sale of
their product or by a click on their link. Be sure to
choose affiliates that coincide with your topic. Some
great places to go for affiliates are Google
AdSense and Commission Junction.
Advertising. Add your sites url (the link to your
site) to all of your signatures. Tell everyone you
can about your new site; family, friends, coworkers-everyone!
Add a link to your site in all of your emails. A
good site to check out is www.MomPack.com
You can find many other moms on there looking to help you
great activities for the whole family
