If you’re looking to generate some extra income ($500 to $2500 a month) using the Internet, it isn’t hard if you know what to do. I make a living on the Internet, so I’m going to share with you some easy tips and tactics on how to build a website and make money off it. (Yes, you do need a website. And yes, it’s easy as pie to set one up!). So let’s dig right into it…
1. Picking a web host to setup your website
The first thing you need is a web host, which typically range from $5 to $10 a month. Pick one that is reliable, has customer support and word press ready to go. I don’t recommend using a free web host because it’s usually limited and there are ads everywhere. Next thing you want to do is pick your domain name, I usually just use your first and last name for the domain name (i.e., kennobo.com) and I’m good to go.
Definition: a web host is a computer that hosts your website. A URL or domain name is the unique address people enter to visit your website.
2. Ways to make passive income off your website
You can either make money by putting ads up your website or sell something. I have used Google AdSense on my website but it doesn’t make much, anywhere from $50 to $100 a month in passive income. Some people make much more, but you need a lot of visitors and people clicking your ads to make a good amount of money through ads. That’s why I rather sell something.
What I like to do is write a review page, recommending a product. I wrote a recommendation page on a poker website, where each time someone signs up I get $75 in commission from the poker website. I did the work 6 months ago and so far the site made me $2700 in passive income. Not bad for a $10 investment on a web host, right?
