The Truth About Making Money With A Website
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

What's the truth about making money with a website? Truth is, making money with a website is a great way t make a little cash or even making a fantastic living. Think of it for a minute, a website is set up to promote something, it could be just for information, a large company trying to get the word out about their company or an individual selling a product. That website is available 24 hours a day seven days a week. If you have a product that people want, you can sell it on a website around the clock with no overhead, no employees.

So if I have a website, how do I go about making money with a website? That would depend on if you have your own product or idea. If you have your own product, you will promote that by placing ads on a search engine. Placing ads on search engines can be done a couple of ways. The first one is called pay-per-click. With this one you design an ad and place it with a search engine like google, they will run your ad and every time your ad get s clicked on you pay for it. The other way is to write articles much like this one and publish it with an article directory, when the search engines search the internet for information like that in your article, it will place an ad for you at no cost.

Article writing is a slower way to get started in making money with a website, but it is a very effective way to market your site. It is also very cost-effective. No money involved to write and publish ads, just your imagination and time (and maybe spell check. lol). Writing articles is a great way to advertise because you can explain a little about your website before anyone actually goes there. A pay-per-click ad will take a visitor directly to your website but you will have to pay for that privilege.

If you don't have your own product, is making money with a website still possible? absolutely! Affiliate marketing is a way to do it. An affiliate marketer can promote products created by others that want help selling them. When you sell one of these products you get paid a commission. This can be done the same way as promoting your own product, by placing ads and driving people to your website where you can then direct them to the merchant site.

Allowing a search engine to place ads on your website is another way of making money with a website. Once you set up your website, even if you don't plan on selling anything on it, you can sign up with a search engine to place ads on your sites. Many corporations are looking for places to place their ads. When visitors come to your website and click on one of those ads you get a percentage of that ad. You do nothing but maintain the site.

So the truth about making money with a website is that there are several ways to do it. Creating a site that you can promote your own product or that of someone else. You can place ads for companies or allow a search engine to pace them. Of course there are several other ways to make money with a website, these are just a few I wanted to share.
