The ten step roadmap to making money online

May 11th, 2008 by admin

If you think these are ten quick steps/a couple of clicks that will help earn money, you are not reading the right article. This article is meant to be a a roadmap, to show beginners in particular, how to build their own website and make money online.
Some of the steps are covered in more details in related articles at
http://www.mindrivet.com/category/make-money-online/


Step 1. Install Apache, php and Mysql and configure them.
Build your own website and then monetize it. The first step towards building your website is to go hands on, on your home PC. You may directly start working on a website on a hosting account with the web host you register with (this will be covered in details in the next steps).But I would suggest you first get a feel of it on your personal computer.

Step 2. Download and install wordpress.
Step 2 towards building your website is to start using wordpress. It is extremely easy to build a website using wordpress - you need no knowledge of html or scripting. Wordpress requires php and mysql and hence the need for step 1.
Why wordpress as a content manager for you?
Not only is it a powerful and robust content management system but it goes way beyond that. It has numerous plugins to enhance your marketing and readership. And with also these plugins available, using wordpress is no rocket science. It is very easy to use - you need no software background to use it. Follow the instructions for setting up wordpress. Wordpress uses php and mysql which should already have been set up on your webserver (Step1 above).

Step 3. Register domain name.
Step3 towards hosting your website is to choose and register a domain name.
Tips for choosing a domain name:
Choose a short meaningful name with no numbers and special characters.
The name could be a phrase of two/three short words with easy to remember spellings. You do not want your visitors to find it difficult to remember or type domain names.
Choose a name that emphasizes or underlines the content that you are going to put up in your website.

Step 4. Set up a hosting account.
A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to provide their own website accessible via the World Wide Web.

Before you set up your hosting account, make sure that you have purchased a domain. (Step 3 is a pre-requisite) To decide upon a web hosting plan you need to determine your needs first and decide exactly what you are going to need now as well as for future developments for your Website.
You would need to consider
Space – How much space are you going to need depends on the size of your site.
Type of server – Most web hosting companies offer you two options: Linux or Windows web hosting. Linux could be faster but if you are planning on using .ASP or .Net environments, it is better that you use Windows web hosting.
Features – What kind of features should the host support that you will need to use or run to operate your Website efficiently, ex php, java, perl etc?
Cost – Cost is one of the main consideration factors for deciding upon a web hosting plan. The idea is to use a cheap web hosting plan but not at the cost of reliability (server uptime for instance) or poor support services.
My web hosting account preferences -
I go in for a linux account.
I ensure that my hosting account supports wordpress php, mysql.

Step 5. Choose a niche (topic) for you website, preferably something you are knowledgeable about or passionate to build knowledge about. When you build your pages they should be built around keywords relevant to the niche.

Step 6. Choose a wordpress theme. A wordpress theme determines the display or presentation of your website. The layout and presentation of your site is important - it should be neat and uncluttered.

Step 7. To start with - Add Home, About, Privacy Policy pages to your website so that your website looks authentic and professional. This builds trust amongst your visitors. Start adding your content - it is as easy as typing in text when you use wordpress.

Step 8. Do search engine optimization for your site to increase the volume of traffic to your website. Unless search engines (google,yahoo, others) lead visitors to your website (which is as good as your online shop), there would not be any earning.

Step 9. Signup for google adsense. It is free and easy to start with for making money online.

Step 10. Affiliate marketing. Join an affiliate program - as an affiliate you get a commission by selling other people’s products. Place links on your website to promote products. Your visitors click a link and buy a product or say fill a form. You earn a commission for sales or leads generated from your links.
Affiliate marketing is a quick way of making money online. Compared to any offline business, the risks are low (you can always have your full time job and spend some time working as an affiliate). All you need to do is work hard and you are your own boss.
