Running Your Own Site

One of the best ways to make money on the internet is to run your own website. It could be a blog, an online store or really anything. Any website can make some money, but don't be fooled that it is a quick way to make a lot of money; it is fairly easy to earn a little extra cash, but to make significant money will require quite a lot of time and effort.

Step 1: Domain and Hosting

The first thing you need to do is choose and domain and hosting. We recommend GREENGEEKS, it is the host we use to host this website and we love it! Not only is it cheap (at time of writing they are offering ONE YEARS hosting with a FREE DOMAIN for just $35!), but they are also 'green' - they will plant a tree for each new customer!

Step 2: Site Set up & Design

Another reason GreenGeeks is a good choice is that they use cPanel hosting and many websites (such as Wordpress) can be installed at a single click of a button! If you need help seting up, or designing your website then reach out to us, at Fiverr, where we offer a complete service for website creation and design.

Step 3: Content

Don't advertise your site too soon! Make sure you have a decent amount of high-quality content first. If people visit your half-empty site once, they likely won't return!

Step 4: Advertise!

...and advertise some more! Websites don't work without people visiting them and it is now a big job to get them to your site. Keep reading below to find some great tools and ideas to help you advertise your new site.
