You probably figured out by now, create a website is not to hard; but create a visible website (visible by search engines) and market a website successfully is not that simple anymore.

Today you can not advertise the same company’s service with several websites and expect people to show up spend their money on your product or service.

How Can You Make Money On The Internet

Everyone can make money on the Internet, you just need to have a computer and Internet connection. Than you need an idea. If you want to sell things, you can open your on-line store on Amazon.ca or .com in a matter of seconds. The web traffic guarantied, you just need to have  one or more good products.

One of our coworker’s friend makes hand made organic  soap and she  sells it on Amazon. I use her soap too. Her Amazon business took off pretty good and now her daughter helps her too, (she is high school student) because  she can’t keep up making those soaps.  Now she is thinking to hire an other student, in part time  to help her out  in shipping.

You are not into sales business… No problem, whether you’re looking to make some fast cash, or you’re after long-term, more sustainable income-producing results.

There are certainly more than one  way you can make money online today. The truth is that making money online isn’t as difficult as most make it out to seem.

You do not need to invest a penny if you can write. You can become a Freelance Writer.

A growing number of websites and companies will pay well for your key word targeted articles or blog posts. Even websites like About.com will “pay for performance” based on page views for just about anything you want to write about if you have the experience and background to cover your beat.

A lot of companies are looking for part-time bloggers to help them create high-value blog posts for their websites, which creates great opportunities for those with a knack for writing compelling content. Most clients pay per post or on a retainer contract with a set number of posts delivered per month.They give you their keywords and you write the related articles, buy use their keywords.

The best thing about becoming a freelance writer is that you can even start a freelance business on the side while keeping your day job with just a few hours per day. As a starting point, search Google for “freelance writer needed” and Google will bring up hundreds of websites who want to pay for your articles.

We are looking for quality articles for our clients in many difference subject at all  the time.

Start Your Own Blog.

You don’t have to build a custom website, or install complicated blogging software, or even figure out how to set up advertising systems, in order to start a blog today. At Blogger or WordPress, you can set up a blog for free in less than five minutes with very little knowledge. We have template for that, or you can use free templates that comes with WordPress installation package.

Or we have web hosting package with installed and customized blog. You can make money off your blog by displaying ads and getting paid when people click on the ads. To make even more money from it, search Google for affiliate programs, and set up one. You can choose  program for books, music, etc., and insert your affiliate links whenever you refer to those items.

Than you can set up your own YouTube channels. Do you know that Google provides studio? You don’t need to invest money, you invest your time only. I know a person a middle aged man, he makes 5 figure income every month with his  YouTube channel. He is not an engineer, he does not have university or collage degree, he lives in a farm. He never been in any Google studio, but he got an incredible idea, first he made a  blog (actually we did that blog for him for $150) than he opened a YouTube channel and we attached it to his blog. Now thousands of people visits his YouTube channel every day.

A lot of people, young and older and middle aged done it, probably you can do it too. You just need to pick an interesting topic, write well, make videos, tell all your friends, create a blog, publish it on you tube and you’re off to a good start with building a targeted audience.

And my favorite subject is a good money making opportunity, which is photography. We have photography templates too. Virtually less than a few minutes, your photography website  ready to go with the option to make some cash.

I am a hobby photographer and always wanted to be  a professional photographer. Maybe I will be one day, if not this life than in the next one…

You don’t have to be a professional photographer to sell your photos for money. People are constantly in need of  unique stock photography for websites, presentations, brochures and so on, and are willing to pay for the right image.

People generally search for images on stock photography sites by keywords, not by a photographer, so you have the same chance as anyone else of having your image picked. Just be careful that you don’t have images of trademarked brands, copyrighted art or people’s faces that are readily identifiable (unless you have a model release), but just about anything else is fair game, and I promise – you’d be amazed what people need pictures of, so don’t make any assumptions.

If your photo is decent photo, or unic, upload it. Some sites to get you started include ShutterStock, Dreamstime and iStockphoto. The great thing about this is that you upload you photos to your account and and forget it. The webiste does the rest.

This is by no means you are going to make a million dollar next week, or next month, but thosends of people did it. There many new and interesting ways are to make money online without investing any money, without having a product of your own, and without having expert sales and marketing skills.

One more sentence here at the end. The best way to make money to do something that you like to do. That way, it does not feel like you work. It feel like you entertain yourself…

Website Conversion

How do you measure the success of a site? Conversion.

You could have a lot of traffic going to your site, but those visits don’t really matter if you aren’t converting them into customers. The only visitors that matter are those that are adding to your bottom-line. All other traffic is essentially wasted.

Are you finding yourself with a lot of traffic, selling the right products at competitive prices, yet not with many paying customers? Then read on to find out why your site isn’t converting and what you can do about it.
Check Your Current Conversion Rate

First things first, you should know your current conversion rate. Whether you measure your conversions by product purchases, brochure downloads or email newsletter signups: you need to be measuring and tracking those conversions regularly. You can track your conversion rate using Goals in Google Analytics, or through any other analytics platform of your choosing.

So what’s considered a good conversion rate? The ideal rate is between 2 to 3 percent. This rate could be higher or lower based on the value of the conversion (e.g. you’d have more difficulty converting customers if you’re selling products or services worth $10,000+). But if you’re having less than 2 percent conversion and your conversion value isn’t very high, then you might have a problem on your hands.

There can be many reasons why your site may be under performing.

Your Website Providing a Bad Mobile Experience

If your website isn’t mobile-friendly, there is no way it will survive in these times. It isn’t enough for your site to be responsive, it has to be designed specifically for mobile in terms of content and structure. Failure to do so would mean marginalizing a substantial portion of your customer base and in turn decreasing your conversion rate.

But what does designing for mobile entail? Would like to know? Continue Reading…

Search Engine Marketing – SEO – Website Promotion

If you would like to succeed as a Internet business owner you need to advertise and you need to promote your on line business. There are two ways to market a business. On line and offline. In this page I will talk about on line marketing. On line marketing and search engine traffic are closely related. If your marketing campaign is successful, your search engine traffic will increase, or if it fail your search engine traffic will decrease.

A good on-line marketing campaign needs proper planning, an effective strategy and the right tools to target your future customers.

Importance Of Search Engine Friendly Websites

Once a website has been finished and published, to get it listed in the big three search engines database; Google, Bing and Yahoo, should be the highest priorities. You should not publish a website that is unfinished. Notes and images that states, “Full website coming soon” or “Under Construction” are really bed news for your business. It is something like driving a car with out wheels or a steering wheel. It just won’t work.

There is no way to create free search engine traffic to any website, if that website is not finished yet. Also there is impossible to create search engine’s web traffic to a website, if that website is not search engine friendly. Graphic artists and programmers during website developing do not seem to be think with a marketer mind and they don’t see with a search engine marketing specialist eye.

Sometimes the best web developer, who may use the most advanced programming techniques and the most refined graphic designs, seem to forget the importance of keywords and the proper keywords placing. With this small mistake even the most sophisticated website may experience problems at a later time when it fails to appear within the top search engine results.

My point is, before you spend a wheel of fortune to your search engine marketing campaign you should get optimize your web pages to your targeted keywords, otherwise you are just wasting your money.
