OK, so you are tired of your 9 to 5 job and are looking to make money from your computer. You are among millions of people who are looking to do the same thing, just as I am.
We all know that the majority of people who are making a steady income from the internet have a website, but what exactly is a website?
A website is a collection of web pages and video, or image content, that are typically identified with a domain name.
The website is published on a web server. The domain name is the name you want to call your website.
Usually you can buy a domain name for your website for around $15 per year. The good thing about purchasing a domain for your website is that nobody else can use that name, it belongs to you just as real estate you purchase belongs to you.
How Do I Create My Own Website?
The Steps For Creating A Website are as easy or as hard as you want it to be.
What do you mean?
What I am saying is that you can purchase an already working website that is already making money for usually thousands of dollars, or you can learn how to make your own website and market it.
The easy way is to just buy a site that is already making money, but most people want a website because they don’t have enough money in the first place!
So forget about buying a website for us poor folks! We are going to have to learn how to make our own website.
How Much Will It Cost To Create My Website?
That is an excellent question. I remember about twenty years ago I attended an internet marketing promotion that was held at a restaurant.
They invited you to come and have dinner “on us”, and we will show you how to make money online with your very own website store!
I still remember the name of the company, it was called Stores Online, and they had a group of very good salesman that went all over the place usually in restaurants.
They would rent a space at the restaurant and invite as many people as they could for a free dinner. Hey, a free dinner? Who does not like that? But, with a catch.
So the presenter explained how that people are buying more and more from websites than actual physical stores. They showed us all the graphs and charts that showed online purchasing skyrocketing.
Then after dinner they went in for the kill!
They began showing us how much money it would cost us to actually start a brick and mortar store, and how many products we would have to purchase.
They threw big numbers at us, like it costs a million dollars to start a McDonalds, for instance.
Then they showed us how much it costs for their website store and then, being the good salesmen they were, showed us a Special price deal for only that night, which was half as much as the first number they gave us.
Silly me went ahead and purchased one of their online stores, and never made a dime with it. It was about one thousand dollars, I lost every penny of that investment!
Can I Get A Free Website, Is There Such A Thing?
Fast forward twenty years and yes, now anyone can get a free website from a number of different sites. The only problem now is how do I use the tools that are within this website to make it look fancy and attractive?
I also need a training program that will explain to me in detail how I can sell products on my website.
The other problem is that it is no use to have your own website if nobody knows about it! I need to learn how to get people to actually see my website. That is called traffic. I need traffic to come to my website, but how do I do that?
