Almost Everything Will Go Through Your Site

Having a website will help your potential customers discover you online, and allow you to sell and promote anything you will be making money from in the future. Your site does not have to be complicated, but it does have to appear professional in order for people to get a sense of trust, and want to do business with you. Creating a website should not be a barrier to making money online. It can be pretty simple.  Here is a tutorial for how to set up your site quickly and professionally, on your own and for nearly free.

How To Make Money

There are many ways you can make money online. In fact, here is an article with a list of possible revenue models.  The most common ways to make money from your blog or website are with ads, by re-selling affiliate products, or by selling products you create. Let’s examine each.

The simplest way to make money online is with ads. Online, this would be with Google’s AdSense program where you can display Google ads on your site, and get paid when someone clicks them. Here is a video tutorial for how to make money with ads.


The second best way to make money online is to resell products made by other companies. That is called being an affiliate reseller of those companies. The reason this is great is that you get to choose the products that you want to sell, but do not have to manufacture those products or manage inventory. Here is a full tutorial for how you can become an affiliate reseller.


Our third method of making money online is by selling something you make. Some people make things all the time. They knit, they make crafts or other things. If you are not like those people, don’t worry. If you can write or share any knowledge, you can create digital products. Some of the most common digital products are e-books which you can sell from your site. Here is a full tutorial on ways to make money from your blog that explains how to sell products you make on your own.

The Common Online Scams: What Not To Do!

There are some common tricks that you should not fall for. Many people online promise to teach you how to make money online, but do not teach you anything until you pay them. And once you pay them, they tell you that to make money online, you have to sign people up just like they signed you up, and that is how you will make money online from those people. So if someone is unwilling to share what method they will use to make money online, that is a red flag so don’t fall for it. Additionally, there are no easy ways to make money. They all require hard work, lots of effort and time. So if someone promises something that sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
