Creating A Profitable Website
Creating A Profitable Website
So you want your very own money making website ... First things first, what are you going to sell?
matter what anyone tells you, the first step you need to take if you
want to set up your business’s website is to first determine the goal
for what you want to use your website for.
If you already have a
brick and mortar business and you are planning on expanding its reach to
the internet, then you are off to a good start. On the other hand, if
you are starting from scratch, and a business website is going to be
your sole moneymaker, then you have a lot of work ahead of you.
there are more steps involved for those who are looking to make an
online business from scratch, we will start at the beginning. Your first
step when creating a business website is to brainstorm what it is
exactly that you want your business to provide.
A sales or retail
website will look different than a marketing website which will look
different than an informational website, and they will all look
different than a web application. Your primary concern should be to
first determine a genre for your business’s website. Everything else
will fall into place once you have the basic ideas laid out for your
Each type of business site has its own pros and cons. For
example, a sales or retail website will have a lot of pictures, sporadic
text that is mostly used to describe each product you are selling in a
sentence or two, and a shopping cart.
These sites feature easy
navigation and are very user friendly, but they are more difficult to
get recognized by search engines and normally do not take advantage of
advertising. Affiliate programs can be used, however, for extra traffic.
the other hand, a marketing website is designed to sell one product and
one product only. You’ve probably seen a number of marketing websites
attempting to sell you get rich quick schemes, web content, and handy
Photoshop plug-ins to make web design easier.
These sites are the
easiest to design and build, feature mostly text with a few images
interspersed, and contain a simple “Buy Now” button. They are designed
around one product and one product only, making them optimized for
search engines and perfectly positioned to make money through
advertising and affiliate programs.
The informational business
website is next. These are sites designed to inform about a business,
but not necessarily sell anything directly. Think of some of the biggest
companies in the world: Sony, Motorola, Canon, Toyota, Chevrolet, etc.
While you can buy items on some of their corporate websites, they are
primarily designed to inform the consumer.
By informing the
consumer about your brand or store, you can help get the word out about
your products and increase your sales dramatically. These websites,
while they can work for anyone who has a well-defined product to sell,
are better for companies and small businesses that have a nationwide
In other words, it is not a good idea to make an
informational website for your local business when you will only get a
few site visitors a month - if that. Do not confuse these informational
websites with Adsense Sites. The two are distinct.
you really want to make a name for yourself on the Internet, you can
consider taking a route that few dare to tread. You could create a
web-based application that functions like a traditional program, but is
located on the internet. These programs can often give you a channel to
make a significant amount of money, provided that people find the
applications you create useful.
However, they do require a lot of
perseverance, a very original idea, and a good team of programmers who
want the product to succeed. While a web application based business is a
fantastic way to make a lot of money, it is not recommended for those
who are new to the business arena.
Now that you know the four
basic types of business websites, it is up to you to choose the one that
will most work for your goals. You do not, and should not, decide right
now which type of site is the best for you.
Take your time, do
some research, and make sure that you talk everything through with your
business partners and/or your immediate family members who may be
counting on you to make the right decision. When you have a general idea
of which type of business website you want to construct, and what
product(s) you want to sell, you can move on to step two.
Do You Really Need Your Own Business Website?
you want to sell items using the internet, you may not even need your
own business website. There are a number of places where you can go if
you want your products to reach the masses - but you do not want to deal
with the time and money expenditures that building a business website
These different options could save you ample time in
getting your business up and running quickly. Then, if you decide that
your business has become profitable enough, you can take your sales to
your own website and retain all of the profits.
The most common
third party company to use when peddling your wares is eBay. By using
the online auction powerhouse, many people have found it fantastically
easy to make quite a bit of money. However, selling items on eBay does
not come cheap, as the company does charge quite a bit of money for each
completed transaction. Do not despair, as you can still find it
incredibly easy to set up your business and sell your products using an
Setting up your eBay storefront is no more difficult
than simply creating an account with the online marketplace. Although it
is not good practice, you will have to also give some financial
information to eBay when you sign up, so it is a good idea to dedicate a
bank account, a credit card, or a Paypal account to eBay. Treat your
eBay store like a business and it will be easier to keep track of all of
You can start selling immediately with eBay.
Just choose an item you want to list and place it on eBay. Aside from
the tools that eBay gives you just for being a member, there are a
number of fancy listing tools available for low prices for all operating
systems. Some of them are even free. No matter the cost, if you want
your eBay store to look professional, you will want to invest in one of
these third party selling tools.
While eBay is easy to use and a
very effective way of getting your products to a marketplace of millions
from around the world, there are a few drawbacks. eBay takes its cut on
every sale you make. You will have to pay listing fees and selling fees
as well as Paypal fees on purchases people make through the financial
service. This can add up over time, so while eBay is a great place to
get your business started, it is not recommended that you stick with
eBay as your sole source of income for longer than a year or two.
eBay does not sound like it would be the proper marketplace for your
products, you may want to consider teaming up with retail giant
Amazon.com. There are two ways to use Amazon to your advantage - selling
your used items in an eBay style manner or creating your own WebStore
on Amazon. You should decide which method to use based on your predicted
sales volume as well as how much of a reputation you want to establish
Selling one product at a time on Amazon can make
you some money, but it is not exactly an online business website. If you
want to go full bore and make as much profit as you can, then the
Amazon WebStore is what you should focus your attention towards. The
Amazon WebStore affiliation will allow you to sell your products right
alongside of Amazon’s products, allowing you to sell your goods to over
sixty million potential customers.
Just like setting up a store
with eBay, an Amazon WebStore is a cakewalk compared to designing your
own business website. But there are monetary drawbacks involved as
well--drawbacks that may deter you from engaging in a financial
partnership with the retail giant.
While you can build your own
Amazon WebStore using Amazon’s easy to use storefront designer, it will
cost you sixty dollars per month in hosting fees plus seven percent of
each sale goes into Amazon’s pocket.
All in all, if you think you
can move enough merchandise on Amazon’s site, this is really the
business alternative that you should consider. It offers roughly the
same exposure as eBay and slaps you with far less fees so that you can
make more profit.
Finally, if you are considering marketing or
publishing as an online business, you may want to take a look at what
Lulu.com has to offer. As the leader in online self publishing and all
things print, Lulu is the place to go if you are attempting to make your
fortune with art or the written word.
From calendars to books to
music, if it is artsy, it’s on Lulu. All you have to do is come up with
a creative idea, get Lulu to produce it, and then you get some profits
based on what sells on their site. You can even take your published
works to an Amazon or eBay store for even more exposure.
the market at Lulu is limited, it is the best place to get discovered if
you are willing to put in the time and effort to write a book, create
some art, or even record a song. Even if you are not into making one of
these activities into a full on business, Lulu provides you with a great
way to make some money on your hobbies.
Like photography? Make a
calendar. Have an opinion on the presidential candidates? Write a short
book and have Lulu publish it. Play in a garage band? Record your songs
and Lulu will sell your CD for you.
Although there are plenty of
other programs that you can enroll in if you are looking to establish
an online business without making your website right away, the above
listed companies offer three of the largest resources for you to start
selling right away. Their fees are affordable, their web traffic is
They can offer you everything you want about an online
store except for your own domain name and full control over your
profits. If you want to be completely in charge of your business, you
need to create your own business website.
Designing Your Business Website
this point, you should have an idea of what you want your website to be
and what you will be selling on your website. Most of you will have
chosen to make a sales, retail, or marketing website, so the rest of
this article will be dedicated to those who decided to go in that
The rest of you, consider investing in a high quality
web designer and an even higher quality web developer - you will need
all of the help you can get in making your own web application or
informational business website.
Designing a website is actually a
very simple process, even if you have never done such a project in the
past. You really have two choices at this point, as far as the website
design is concerned. Build the site yourself or hire someone else to do
the heavy lifting for you.
Obviously, building the site from
scratch by yourself is going to be the more cost effective solution, but
if you have no prior experience or you need your website up as soon as
possible, hiring a professional may be your better option. No matter
which route you take, there are a few tips that you need to consider if
you want to make sure that your website looks exactly as you want it to.
you are building your business website yourself or if you have hired
someone to do it, you need to make a rough template for how you want
your site to look. If design is not your thing, there are plenty of
resources out there that can help you get started. Take a look at
websites like CSS Beauty, Design Snack, and Smashing Magazine for all of
the inspiration that you could ever possibly need. These sites
highlight some of the best in web design and are perfect for anyone who
is having a difficult time coming up with some ideas.
have settled on a basic web design for your business website, you need
to come up with a color scheme that would work well with what you’re
trying to accomplish. A sales website, for example, will make use of a
lot of whitespace and only a basic palette of three or four colors so as
not to be too hard on the viewer’s eyes.
On the other hand, a
marketing website will use big blocks of text with highlighted words
here and there, often making use of brilliant colors like reds, blues,
and yellows to attract the reader’s eye to important points. If you are
having trouble coming up with colors, check out sites like ColorBlender
and colordb to help you choose the perfect palette for your site.
the basic template and the color scheme have been decided on, you need
to make the decision to build your site yourself or hire someone else to
do it. If you hire someone, all you have to do is pay them the
appropriate amount and submit your early designs and color choices.
web designers will do the rest and you’ll pay them the full amount on
completion of the project. Go ahead and skip to Step Three if you are
planning to take the web designer route. Those of you, who want to go it
alone, keep reading.
Designing Your Own Website
designing your own website is not the most difficult thing you will ever
do, it is fairly time consuming. However, when you have finished with
the design, you will have a great feeling about yourself - that you
actually created something yourself, something that you can be proud of,
something that will hopefully make you a lot of money in the long term.
you already have your template sketched out and your color palette
chosen, the only prep work that you need before you get started on your
site’s design is to download the necessary tools that will help you
along the way.
You will need an image editor for creating the
pictures for the site, a “What You See Is What You Get” site editor to
design the website, and a text editor to modify the code as you see fit.
If you’ve got the money, purchase a copy of the Adobe CS3 Web Design
package which contains Photoshop, Dreamweaver and a bunch of other
Otherwise, for image editing, consider using the
GIMP or Paint.NET on Linux or Windows, respectively, or Pixelmator on
Mac OS X. Use KompoZer as a free WYSIWYG editor on Linux or Windows.
Finally, consider using a text editor like Notepad ++ for Windows or
TextMate for Mac OS X. Also, download an FTP client like FileZilla so
that you can easily upload your site to a server when everything is
Even though the tools will help you quite a bit on
your quest to code your own business website, they will not be able to
do all of the work for you. You still have to put in quite a bit of
input, and it helps if you have some kind of reference material to guide
So, your best bet is to look up as much information online
as you possibly can. Read tutorials and guides that can help you learn
XHTML for coding the site’s framework, CSS for giving the site some
site’s inner workings and other various functions.
It may take a
week, it may take a month, but when your website is finally finished,
you should use your FTP client to upload it to a server and make sure
that it works perfectly well.
Also, at this time, it is of the
utmost importance that you check your website in a variety of web
browsers, including Firefox, Internet Explorer (6 and 7), and Safari.
All web browsers display pages differently, so you want to be sure that
your site looks just as good in IE as it does in Firefox and Safari.
How to Take Advantage of Advertising to Find Traffic and Make Extra Money
is a great way to make money online. It does have its drawbacks,
however. The main problem with advertising, especially if your internet
business is merchandise related, is that you end up cheapening your
store, making it look untrustworthy and making you look as though you
are more interested in making money than selling high quality goods that
your customers would want to purchase.
For this reason and this
reason alone, it is a good idea to not use ads on retail, sales, or
marketing website where you are trying to gain a potential customer’s
trust so that they will stay with you long enough to make a purchase.
After all, if you have a successful store, you will be able to make more
than enough money and advertisements on your site will not be of any
real value to you.
However, there is one way that you can take
advantage of advertising and turn advertisements to your advantage.
Instead of placing ads on your site, you should instead contact
advertising sites, blogs, and other informational websites in your
By contacting advertising sites like Google
Adwords, for example, you can arrange to have your advertisements
displayed on websites around the globe. It can add up to be costly, but
it is a very effective way of getting your name out. And any one click
could be a sale.
Alternatively, if you contact blogs or other
informational websites, you can see if they offer advertising space.
Buying advertising space on a site in your chosen niche can bring in a
lot of traffic, but it can also be costly depending on who you do
business with. For example, an ad on a big name blog may cost thousands
of dollars a month while an ad on a smaller, less developed site may
only be a few dollars a week.
The best way to take advantage of
advertising on other sites to increase your traffic is to set aside a
particular budget each month for how much you want to spend for
advertising. Keep this budget at a set amount for several months and see
how far you can make your money go. If you are not seeing any results
with your advertisements, then move on to another advertiser or up the
amount you are spending.
The important things to look for are
high click through and conversion rates. Are people clicking on your
ads? Are those ads converting to sales? Just because thousands of people
see your ads does not mean that you are making any money. Find your
weakest advertisers and move on to something that will give you more
bang for your buck.
If you find that you are uncomfortable in
dealing with blog and website owners, you should consider finding
advertising space with the big corporations. Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and a
variety of other big name companies all offer advertising in some way or
another. You pay their fees in either a pay per click or a pay per
impression manner and your ads are hosted on websites across the globe.
Advertising with one of these big companies is sure to net you a good
amount of traffic, but the conversion rate may be somewhat low at first.
Try upping your budget if you’re not noticing any big sales from
AdWords, et al, visitors and try as hard as you can to get the best
keywords for your niche. Don’t cheap out and you won’t lose out on
But what if you want to design a business website
without actually selling anything? There are millions of people doing
just that: selling advertising space instead of any real product. Just
look at sites like LifeHacker, TechCrunch, and ICanHasCheezburger. These
are sites that are making a fortune on advertising revenue alone.
They’re not selling any products, just web space that is viewed by
thousands of people every day.
All it takes is a great idea, the
desire to work hard to build your advertising site from scratch, and
quite a bit of persistence. This is not an overnight type of deal, you
really have to work to make a lot of money through advertising, so be
sure that you know exactly what you are getting into before you begin
the process of making your own ad funded website.
When you are
sure that this is the direction that you want your business to go, you
need to decide what kind of ad based website you want to make. Blogs,
while the most popular, are not the only way to make money through
advertising. You could run a news website or some kind of site that
provides a service to your users. Those are just two of the hundreds of
different options available for someone who is looking to make it rich
Making it big through advertisements is not
based on just a good idea, though; you have to execute it properly as
well. You need a good, easy to read web design. You need to make sure
that your ads blend seamlessly with the overall design of your website.
need to have good server space that will not go down on you during even
the slightest load. You need to be dedicated to your project. Eat while
working on it, drink while working on it, and dream about it when you
sleep. Only then can you hope to play with the big boys and really get
your name out there in the advertising world.
To make your site
profitable, you will have to bring in tens of thousands of people each
day. A daunting task, but if you dedicate yourself to your goal and you
work towards it every day, it will eventually happen for you.
How to Optimize Your Site for Search Engine Traffic
engine optimization is a booming field, and it is easy to see why. As
an online business, the bulk of your customers will come from search
engines. Therefore, you want your business website to be optimized for
search engine traffic.
While most people would suggest that you
hire a professional for a task that seems to be rather difficult at
first glance, in actuality there is nothing to search engine
optimization, or SEO, that you cannot do yourself. It is much easier
than designing your own website.
Far easier than finding
resources to send traffic your way. And certainly easier than getting
each and every person who visits your site to buy one of your products.
easiest way to achieve search engine optimization is to make sure that
you have some kind of informational keywords on every page of your site.
From your home page to a product buried deep within your site that very
few people outside of search engine spiders will ever view - everything
needs to advertise your site to search engines. Sounds like a daunting
task? Well, it is time consuming, but with a little practice, you will
be well on your way to achieving a search engine optimized site.
except for the original designers, really knows how each and every
search engine works, so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. There are a
few key aspects of search engine optimization, however, those are well
documented and can help you get a higher rank in each and every search
provider, from Google to Ask to Yahoo! The first step you need to take
is to eliminate any duplicate content that you may have on your website.
means that if you have two products that are exactly the same but
differs in color or some other minute characteristic, and then put them
on the same page. If you want a search engine optimized site, make sure
that there is no duplicate content out there on your site. Having such
content appear multiple times on a search engine is a great way to get
your page rank lowered and lose quite a bit of natural search engine
The other search engine optimization technique that will
yield you a much higher page rank is to make sure that everything on
your site is maximized for your keyword selection. You should take full
advantage of using Meta tags in your HTML such as the keyword tag and
the description tag on every one of your pages. You can add in a huge
amount of keywords, so make sure that you get every last one that
corresponds to your business website.
Also, take advantage of the
description and other tags associated with the images on your website;
they are valuable places to introduce your keywords. And simply because
you are focusing on the underlying aspects of your website that are only
seen by search engines, don’t forget to place keywords inside of as
much viewable text as you can. Doing so will really boost your search
Finally, to rank higher in search engines, you
need a variety of backlinks to your website. These are other sites that
are linking to your website. Google and other search engines use this
information to help determine the significance of a particular website,
so go out there and see if you can entice some people to add a link to
your site somewhere on their own. Keeping with this suggestion for
search engine optimization, keep reading onto step five.
Finding Traffic in Unlikely Places
you’ve now learned how to dig up traffic by advertising and through
search engine optimization - but there are still two other ways which
you can use to bring more people to your website. While they are a bit
more unorthodox, they do work and can help you gain popularity in your
No matter what product you are selling, what
program you are marketing, or how you are planning on making your money
in the long term, these two methods can easily be used to drum up the
traffic and the conversion rates that your website needs to survive.
first way to find traffic in unlikely places is to contact webmasters
of other sites and see if they are interested in sharing links with you.
This will help you gain credibility with the search engines and acts as
a “free” advertisement. Now, before you go off and ask really well
known websites if they will trade links with you, you need to learn a
few rules which are mostly common courtesy.
Firstly, do not even
bother asking a site that is far more popular than yours to trade links
with you. They won’t do it, so don’t even ask. If you are unsure of
whether or not a site is more popular than yours, simply check the Alexa
data for all websites or the Technorati data if you are exchanging
links with a blog.
Secondly, mind your manners when you are
asking to trade links with another webmaster. Think of this as a
business deal and act accordingly. Do not use slang in your email to him
or her, and use proper etiquette.
Also, explain what you are
selling, why you want to exchange links with the webmaster you are
corresponding with, and how you think it could benefit both of your
sites. A clear and concise letter is often what can help seal the deal
in a partnership such as this.
Another great, and mostly unused,
way to drive traffic to your site is to offer an affiliate program.
Affiliate programs are perfect for those of you with sales, retail, or
marketing websites. You should fully take advantage of creating an
affiliate program if your business website warrants it.
of you who are unaware, an affiliate program is simply a program that
you run as a webmaster which allows other websites to link back to
products on your website. If a person purchases a product from your
website by using an affiliate’s link, the affiliate gets a small
percentage of the purchase.
This type of program makes you happy
because you got the money from the sale. It makes your affiliate happy
because he or she got money for doing practically nothing aside from
placing a link on his site. And it makes the customers happy because
they ended up with the item they wanted.
While these are just two
different ways to drive traffic to your business website, there are
many more techniques which you should consider using. A quick search on
your favorite search engine can turn up countless resources for
information for those of you looking to establish your own online
Furthermore, it may be in your interest to check out
some books relating to online businesses, search engine optimization,
and some of the other topics discussed in this article. Good luck with
your business! :)
