Tons of people from all over the world are trying to build a website. That’s fine and many can build a site that looks cool and is somewhat interesting. But is this what makes a successful website? It can depending on what you are building that website for. If it’s for your friends and family then I don’t really see why it can’t be considered a success.
But what about those sites that are designed to make money online and are used with affiliate links? That’s a question I get often on my website here. What kind of a website makes money online and how can you make your website a success? Well, it’s one of those things that can be tricky for many in the industry. In fact because it’s such a do it yourself kind of a project, it’s not surprising that so many people get sidetracked and distracted by this that or the other and eventually just quit. And that’s why people aren’t successful when building their sites. They have little to no patience and honestly just want to get paid.
Take it from me, a successful website will take work. And a lot of it. Look at it like you are building a small empire. You build your website from the ground up, keep adding to it and eventually it can and will be a success. But it won’t happen overnight and you need to be in it for the long haul and the right reasons. And no, it’s not all about making bank. It’s about creating something that people will find use in and want to keep reading and coming back.
Your website can be about anything. Pick any niche you want and run with it. If you want to promote skiing products then build a site about that and write content about the sport. If you’re looking to sell hand made oven mitts, then write and promote what you are selling. Get the picture? The only way you will fail is if you throw up your hands and just quit. And I doubt you are a quitter if you have read this far.
Honestly the best route to take is one that is easiest for you. You don’t have to build your website in one day or two or even in the first few months. Look at your website as a long term year to year project. Why is that? Because it’s important to write about things you want to write about and you want to build a blog base so search engines can find you through the keywords and phrases you use. Do this and you will be successful.
Another thing you don’t want to do is buy into all of the hype of programs that promise you a quick way to earn money. Build your website from the ground up. Learn how to blog effectively and learn how to market that blog. You can do all of this step by step if you learn and apply.
Last thing I would like to touch on is I encourage you to keep at your blogging. Don’t think of the doom and gloom of it all and think you won’t be successful. You will if you don’t think about how long it will take to be successful. When you get tired of writing, stop for a while. Just take a break and come back when you feel motivated. Look to this website for some tips on what makes for a successful website. And don’t get so down on yourself if you aren’t making money at first. Keep plugging along, learn all you can and enjoy the ride. It’s supposed to be a fun learning experience so make it one!
