Building a Website
To make real money online you will first need to build an online presence and create a business, you first need to assemble the components necessary to create a website (or at the very least a ‘squeeze page’).
If you don’t know where to start, there is no need to worry because there are many services providers offering web building services as well as many places where you can get a website built for free.
A quick google search will locate many “free” web building sites such as:
www.wix.com/ www.weebly.com/ www.webs.com/ www.yola.com/ www.moonfruit.com/ www.own-free-website.com/ www.webstarts.com/ www.gybo.com/ www.website.com/ www.ucoz.com/ these are only a sample few.
However even though they say “free” often times there are other costs and you find that it’s not as simple to do as they say.
You really do need to know what you are doing. *(more about getting a truly free website at the bottom of this page)
Great Value, Low-Cost Website
If you don’t want an education on building websites and want a done-for-you low-cost, high-value, cutting-edge, and mobile-responsive squeeze page then Landing Page Monkey is the place where you can quickly and easily create stunning landing pages with just a couple clicks of your mouse and in just five minutes or so you can have a great squeeze page from which to build your mailing list, sell your products and promote your business.
Content and E-Books
Once your know how to create your website you need to provide a reason for people to visit and that is best accomplished with great content. If you don’t know what content to put on the squeeze page (or landing page).
In simple terms, you need a great headline, to capture the readers attention and 3 to five short, snappy bullet points that makes the readers take action (perhaps you could offer a free gift) to encourage them to opt-in.
If you don’t have a free report or ebook to give your visitors I would suggest using a Private Label Right (PLR) product which you can either use ‘as is’ or adapt as your own by personalizing it in any way you want, which might take you about 60 minutes to recreate as your own. Or you can use the information as ‘content‘ for your website.
A great resource where you can take a risk-free trial and get access to one of the largest databases of PLR products for almost every niche you can imagine as well as receive over 40+ PLR ebooks every month is PLR Club.
Domain Name and Hosting
So getting a site built is straightforward but in order to build a website you also need to register a domain name and establish a hosting account which may cost between $10 – $30 pa. Some hosting and Domain companies will offer both, again a Google search will help here;
Top Ten Website Hosting companies: https://www.top10bestwebsitehosting.com/
Top Ten Domain Registration companies: https://www.top10domainregistration.com/
There are lots of options, if you need a recommendation for domain registration & hosting, I like NameCheap.com. Once you have a domain name, hosting account and website builder you are ready to build your website. But having a website online is not that same as having a profitable online business because you now need to interact with your visitors (potential customers) in order to create a commercial relationship and make money.
You will need an auto-responder to automate the process, of customer contact, follow up and product or information delivery, for both the front and back end of your sales funnels. Most people use a 3rd party Auto Responder services like Aweber, MailChimp, Constant Contact, Get Response, iContact, etc.
However, all these require an initial upfront investment ($130 – $600) and then monthly ongoing fees ($27 – $97). My recommendation is IMSC Rapid Mailer because it has a low,one-time only cost with zero monthly fees, it comes with full training and has more flexibility and features than most other 3rd party auto responders and requires lower tech skills.
Basic set up
So putting the basic components together from different sources for a website is not very difficult and once you have your basics setup, your website needs content that provides information that gives your visitors a reason to want to find out more and eventually go on, to purchase products or services from you.
How well you do this determines the success of failure of your online website. Many would be marketers and first-time site builders’ focus too much on building the website and fail to appreciate the importance of the overall strategy, marketing psychology and the creation of sales funnels when attempting to develop an online business. Building your website is really the easy part.
Putting all the parts together to create a fully functioning, revenue generating website and becoming a successful online marketer is not quite so easy.
Not only do you need the right tools but also an education as to the processes and methodologies of website construction, traffic generation, customer engagement and an understanding of front and back end sales funnels.
There then are additional considerations such as indexing the website in Google, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), adding images, keyword selection, adding videos and how and where to get traffic from. Not to mention the installation of online security, spam protection and Google analytic’s and other important plugin technology for the efficient implementation and management of the website and the sales process.
So you could go ahead and gather all the components necessary to build a website (and much of it for free) and attempt to integrate all the parts into a whole, learning by trial and error, and waste precious time as so many marketers do. Or you can get an education while building your online business.
Yet when it comes to getting the education part of becoming a successful online marketer, so many people make this so darn difficult for themselves when it should really be the easiest thing in the world. Instead, they insist upon struggling for the longest time before they either start making a few bucks or give up completely .
Building your very own website is SIMPLE. Building a successful online business is NOT. If you want to cut the learning curve, eliminate the struggle, I recommend wealthy affiliate.
