Quickly making money with a website is the dream of all new online marketers but can it be done and if so how is it done. This article tells what I did in order to start making money in less than 3 weeks with a brand new website in the competitive insurance industry.
The first step I took was to decide on a particular industry. Unlike many of the experts that advocate selecting a niche in order to exploit it, I choose the subjects for my websites based on the popularity of the subject matter in terms of consumer interest and of course profitability. For this particular website I chose to concentrate on insurance. This subject is very competitive and can be difficult to score well on in the search engines but to be honest that wasn't my goal. Instead for every website I make I focus on having it make between $500 and $1000 within 6 months. The methods I use have made it possible to achieve this standard on 3 previous websites so I felt like I could do the same with insurance.
I want to set the story straight so it is only fair that I disclose the software platform that I use to make my websites. I currently make my websites using Site Build It. The features for this program are to numerous to mention in this article and I don't want to focus on them here. I believe that you can still achieve a profitable website within a short timeframe using other software just not as fast as when using SBI.
As I stated earlier I set my sites on the insurance industry because the keyword bids are fairly high for advertisers of insurance products. You can find this type of information on Overture or if you have a Google Adwords account. Again I won't go into specifics on how to do that research as it has been covered by other webmasters in better detail then I could describe.
I decided to set my website up to include all areas of insurance. With that in mind I created web pages for car insurance, home insurance, life insurance, health insurance and several other insurance categories. After setting up my main categories I concentrated on making web pages that point to the main category. For instance if my main category is car insurance and I have a web page built for it then I would make other pages such as California car insurance which point back to my main page on car insurance.
Here's the tricky part normally I spend around 2 hours a night working on my website. That may sound like a lot of time to some people but I assure you, if you want to succeed you will find the time. Trust me ? I work 13-14 hours a day at my main job, have 2 children under the age of 4 and am finishing up work on my Master's degree. If I can find 2 extra hours a day anybody can. Use the desire to someday be your own boss and have enough money to be comfortable as your motivation to make it happen.
Typically what I do during that two hours includes the following: Make at least 1 or 2 new insurance web pages for my website, write 2 new articles and submit them to other websites that accept articles and try to find 2-3 new link exchange partners. The key piece that has allowed me to quickly make money on my websites in less then 3 weeks involves the articles. Every article I write links back to my website with a link in my signature box. The impact that 20 or more articles linking back to a website become evident when the website starts making money due to the articles.
The best technique I have found to quickly make money online is to use Google Adsense on your web pages. The ads generated by the Google code along with any insurance merchants you affiliate with will be the cornerstone of your money making website. The initial amount of money a website will make may not be much in the first few months but the ability to make money in less then 3 weeks is a fantastic motivator which allows a webmaster to stay focused in order to continue to work on a website until the larger dollar amounts start rolling in. From my experiences this usually starts happening around the 6 month mark.
The above article is rather sketchy on specifics but it truly is the format I follow for all of my websites and I continue to make money very quickly which soon grows to a sizeable amount within 6 months.
