Making money off of the internet is a growing revenue stream for a growing number of people. Since you are clearly already on the internet, it is worth taking the time to learn about this possible source of income. First, like any business, you will need to invest a little. Do not be put off at this stage. Waiting is only going to delay any earnings you may have made from your investment.
The investment is incredibly small these days. GoDaddy is offering the purchase of domain names at just $1.50 a piece. In addition, monthly hosting fees are only $1 for the entire first year, and only $2.50 per month for as long as you want after that. With such a tiny financial commitment, it is almost impossible to say no to making a site. Now, you need to determine your revenue stream. Some folks like to go the online store route, selling products directly to customers.
This can get tricky however, and you will need to make sure you are certified on a federal, state, and local level. The easiest way to start making money off of the internet is through the equivalent of product placement in visual media. Just like television shows and movies place popular brands in scenes at the (paid) behest of big companies, you can find a way to insert advertisements into your site. If you are good with words, try blog writing. Write about topics you find interesting and find a way to insert links into your posts. Once you have acquired a few clients, you’ll be raking in reams of passive income. Every time someone clicks a link in one of your posts, you’ll be given a percentage of that sale.
Worried that you will not be able to secure clients? Some hosts do this for you. Just sign your site up for advertising and the host will automatically enroll you in a program that plugs in links into your site using keywords already located on your pages. Of course, you will benefit from reading up a little and getting savvy on SEO- Search Engine Optimization- and the use of keywords. In no time, you will be making money off of that $1 a month investment.
