How to make money with a website

 Blue Print of a Money making website

Are you tired of trading time for dollars? Spend more time doing what you like to do? If so you’re about to discover how to have your own money making website. Having your own website, over time, could replace your current income and free you from the bondage of working for someone else making them rich.

 You need to consider if you want an html brochure static site or a rich, robust content management site that you can update easily. Let help you narrow this part down.

Html site: An html static site is great if you want to sell digital products of your own creation or resell rights packages. You’ll only need to create 4 or 5 pages and just drive Traffic to the site to get prospects into your money funnel.

CMS: Content management system, is a robust easy to use update and manage system. CSM’s are more well known as word press blog platform. You can use the self hosted WP blog as a static site, membership site where people pay for content or an open blog.
Regardless of the type of site you decide to use the rest of this post will show you how to have a money making website.

Your Resource page
One of the best ways and under used strategy of most make money sites is utilizing the use of a Resource page. A resource page can be used in many ways depending on your USP.
·         An eBay blog may have a resource page of products the site owner owns and sells on eBay..
·         An affiliate site may have a resource page of  different related products or services.
·         A product creator may have a resource page of all of the products they have created.
Regardless of the niche a resource page is used to drive curious prospects to sites that will make them money and increase traffic.

Make your site Viral
If you set things up properly on the front end the best way to get a lot of traffic and sells is to think viral. I never set up a site that in some way doesn’t grow on its own. You shouldn’t either. Creating a viral money making site is relatively easy to do. Here is a few ways to do just that.

·         Give Away a $97.00 product that you created just for the prospect signing up to your list.
·         Write a 5 to 7 page report on your niche topic something that is little known and give it away for free for commenting on one of your blog posts, sign up to your list, or follow you on a facebook.
·         Give away a video or audio that shows your prospect how to do something that makes them money. Of course you want to get the prospect on a list first so you can keep marketing to them. Or have them friend, or follow you on social media in order to increase your social signals.

What makes give away viral? If your product is good the prospect will tell others about your website

How to get traffic to your money site
Traffic is your money sites life’s blood. Without traffic no one will ever know that you are on the web. There are two ways to get traffic to your site. One is paid traffic which is fast normally the same day, the other is free traffic, a little slower but traffic that can’t be turn off.

Paid Traffic
There are many ways on the internet to get targeted traffic to your money site.

·         Textual advertising.
       Pretty much like it sounds, you write a classified type ad that links to your money making website. Using a textual advertiser like .txt180 that sends your text ad to phones.

·         Pay per Click. 
       Pay per click advertising is one of the best ways in my opinion to get targeted traffic. If you have ever used a search engine, the ads on the right side bar and at the top of the page usually the first 3 results are pay per click advertising. These are again classified style ads that you bid on or pay a fix price per click or what is normally called a lead.

·         Newsletter advertising. 
      This is a different type of advertising all together. Generally more targeted than Pay per Click because newsletter are niche specific in nature. Cost vary depending on publication size. The type of ad used in newsletters will depend on the publisher. It may be classified style, banners, text, etc.

·         Website advertising. 

      Generally on websites the advertising is usually a 125X125 banner that sits on the side bar. Depending on the site they could use banners, pop ups, slide in ads, footer ads etc. Generally cost more than PPC, or textual ads because these ads sit on the home page of sites. Basically you are renting the space for your ad and provide the banner or content.

Free Traffic

Paid traffic is great but free traffic is even better. With free traffic you can’t turn it off. It is slower to generate but if you continue to use the tactics provided in this post over time you just may get more traffic from these free sources than from paid traffic.

Article directories. 
The basics are you write articles and upload them to article directories such as Ezine articles. If a publisher reads and likes your article they will generally publish it in their newsletter or ezine. You’ll benefit from their subscribers by having a link at the end of the article to your money site. This increases traffic leads and sales.

Guest blogging. 
Guest blogging is similar to writing articles, except you are writing a blog post for a niche specific blog. The blog owner will give you topics to write about that are related to their niche. You will log into their blog and post the article. Again Traffic to your site will come from an author bio box or signature line at the end of the blog post.

Optimizing your money site for search engine traffic is going to be one of the best use of your time. By using medium keywords in the title, sub headings and once or twice for every 100 words of content your page will be crawled by search spiders and listed in search engines. The more good links you have coming into a page the better and the higher the PR the better you will rank.

Blog commenting. 
One of the easiest ways to get a link back to your money site and extra traffic is to comment on blogs that are similar to your money site. Don’t use cookie cutter comments that has nothing to do with the content. Instead be interactive by reading the post and leave a good comment.

Forum marketing.
Like blog commenting you will leave replies one forum threads and even create a thread of your own. Most forums allow you to create a signature line that appears at the end of each comment or post that you create which has a link back to your money site.

Book marking sucks: get them on your list
One of the best ways to get traffic to your money site is by having a list. You’ll need a service such as Aweber or Constant contact. These programs generally cost a monthly fee. Once you have an autoresponder you can create a newsletter to attract potential subscribers to sign up to your list. You can also have subscribers join your list by asking them to receive updates of new posts if you’re running a money blog site.
Either way the autoresponder service you use will have a form that you can place on your site that potential list members can fill out in order to get on your list.


You’ve just discovered the difference between a static html site and a content management system such as word press that you can use for your money site. You learned the potential of having a resource page that can drive traffic to your affiliate offerings, and product sites that you sell elsewhere such as eBay.
