Website publishing is a fun way to make a living. In this article, you'll learn the tools you'll need to build a web site and publish your content in a way that earns you money. This is a great way to supplement an income or work toward your goal of quitting your J-O-B.
Let's start with a definition. Website publishing requires building a site, then posting content to it. Your content can be monetized in various ways. You can sell your own digital products (which you'll learn how to do on this site), become an affiliate of other people's products and earn commissions from your recommendations or post ads (like Google Adsense or banner ads) on your site. Best of all, once you've published an article on your web site, it will continue to earn you money forever, or for as long as you keep your site up.
You do not have to be a technical guru to make money writing content and publishing a website on the internet. In fact, if you can type text into boxes, you can build a nice looking site. Remember, while a beautifully designed site may be visually appealing, it doesn't necessarily get the targeted traffic that is necessary to make a living.
In fact, my web site, the one you're reading this article on was built by typing text into boxes in my browser. Although it may not be gorgeous, it is functional and most important, it gets traffic—traffic that is targeted to my particular niche. When your site attracts visitors that are looking for what you have to offer, you'll make money through advertising and affiliate links.
The website publishing software I use is not just a site hosting package. It is a suite of online tools that gives you an education in building a niche-related site and teaches you how to get traffic from the search engines. What does this mean? It means you won't have to spend money advertising your site.
I have used this system for eight years and recommend it to you with confidence. In fact, I stake my reputation on it. Due to the education that comes with the purchase of these tools, three of my sites now place in the top 1 percent of all sites on the web. A pretty good accomplishment for someone who is not a tech-head.
What does this mean? It means my web sites get a lot of traffic. Targeted traffic equals money. It's a simple equation that most web designers do not understand which is why there are a lot of beautiful sites out there that are nothing more than eye candy because they don't get any traffic.
So if you want to learn to build a site that will be an income-earning business, you need to learn these tools. If I can do it, so can you. Learn more about getting started on your website publishing venture.
