5 Fantastically Easy Steps To Quickly Create Your Own Money Making Website

In a nutshell there are five easy steps to creating your own money-making website.

1. Domain Name – what do you want to call your website?

The name of your website can reflect the type of product you are advertising with links in the words or it can be your own name.

There are several companies offering names for sale, priced from a few to thousands of dollars. The fees for your website are often paid annually and can be paid in advance.

Most sites offering domain names provide a system to offer alternative names if the one you choose is already taken.

Once selected and you are happy with your domain name, you buy this from the company and they provide you with details for your name registration. I use Godaddy. Others include 1and1, PayPal, 123-reg among others.

2. Web Hosting Company – who will host your website?

The web host is the company which gives you the internet space to display your website. This may be the same company which provides the domain name or a separate company.

There are many hosting companies to choose from but so ensure you select a reputable one such as HostGator, 123-reg, GoDaddy, 1and1.

Once you have selected the one you want to use, you then register or sign up for an account.

Next step is to register your domain name with the hosting company in order to build and “display” your site on the internet.

The hosting is normally billed monthly by the company.

3. Creating Your Website – what will it look like?

The most popular and FREE website builder to use is WordPress.

WordPress have free tutorials and help pages to support website owners in choosing the themes, colours, images, buttons, how to add shopping carts, etc.

Frequent questions and answers pages are always available if you struggle with anything.

The main features of your site are the “Home” page, “About” page, “Contact” page and often a “Disclaimer” page.

4. Quality Content – what will your website be used for?

Once you have created your website it is time to add products for advertising or content to raise the profile of your page and drive traffic to it.

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is used by most sites to ensure that anyone using search terms through Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc., get directed to your website when inserting words or keywords into the search engine to get information.

5. Fully Operational – does it work properly?

When your site has the content, pages and correct information, it is important to test all of the links, pages, details, spelling, grammar and images to ensure everything loads properly and is factually correct.

Ask someone you know to visit it and test each part, reporting back to you any issues or mistakes in order that these can be corrected immediately.
