So, you’re hunting for free money making websites. This article takes a look at the two aspects involved in this search: the free websites and the money making websites. . .and how to combine the two.
There are many options that you can choose from if you are looking for free website platforms. Webs.com, Weebly.com and Wix.com are three of the most popular choices for building your own website step by step. If you are just starting out, these could be good options to learn on with a free account. Obviously the free account will limit the features that are available to you but you can also upgrade at any time. These sites all have tutorials to help you get started if you’re brand new to building websites.
Another option is to create a free blog. Typically, blogs differ from websites because they offer opinions or suggestions and because they are more dynamic. Blogs should be updated frequently and consistently with your articles (posts). A website is more static. The information that you put on the pages of your website will not change too often or too much. Blogger.com, WordPress.com and Thoughts.com are some of the most common.
It really makes no difference whether you choose actual websites or blogs to be your free money making websites. Either way, the money-making aspect to apply will be the same. Here is how to monitize your site.
Regardless of whether or not you have your own product or service to sell, you can make money from your website/blog by adding Google AdSense ads. Most website and blog platforms offer this service automatically so all you have to do is sign up – it’s completely free. Once you’re approved, ads that are relevant to the content of your site will appear and when your visitors click on these ads, you will make money. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
Another way to monitize your site, even if you have nothing of your own to sell, is to offer affiliate products to your visitors. Sign up for an affiliate account with any of the affiliate programs (ClickBank and Commission Junction are the most popular) and choose the products that you want to promote. Obviously, these items need to jive with the theme of your website or blog. Put some information about this product in your website or blog along with your affiliate link and whenever someone ends up buying the product, you get a commission on that sale. Affiliate programs typically offer somewhere between 50 – 75 percent commission so you can do really well with this depending on how much traffic you get to your site and how relevant the products are to your theme.
As you learn more about earning money with blogs and websites, you can also start thinking of developing your own product(s) and service(s) that would serve your audience.
There aren’t too many ways that you can earn money without spending any. . .but free money making websites defy the norm!
