Want to make money writing? Last week, we discussed writing for magazines. This coming week, we’ll look at writing and creating FAST websites. These websites can be a wonderful source of passive income for you. If you want to generate some on-going income, creating a 5-minute website is much faster than writing ebooks. (I like to do both.)
In conjunction with our theme, check out the special offering on 5 Minutes To Fast Websites (Cash From Webpages), which gives you the entire process from go to whoa, and much more.
Tip: if you’re not creating websites, you’re leaving money on the table. Once you know how it’s done, you can toss up a quick website whenever you get an idea, or are in the mood.
The basic FAST website-creation process
The basic process couldn’t be simpler.
- Get an idea
Remember that we talked about generating hot-selling article ideas last week? Please revisit that article if coming up with hot ideas is a challenge for you.
When you’re considering ideas however, remember that you’ll be making money from this website. This means that you need to know how you’ll monetize the site from the outset.
(More on that this coming week.)
- Create a website
These days, creating a website’s a no-brainer. You can create a site on wordpress.com (but be careful here, they to be finicky about commercialization.) Alternatively, use a site creation tool like Weebly – I love Weebly… it’s fast, free and great fun to use.
- Monetize the website
What will you sell on your site? You can sell anything you like. Your own products, or you can promote affiliate products to earn commissions. We’ll have more to say about that this coming week, too.
- Promote the website
Your promotional strategies can vary. If you’ve got some time to invest, then do so. For most of my own sites however, I do very little promotion – just some social media promotion, and maybe a press release or two.
Your fast websites are fast to create, so create them. You may get lucky. Your site may earn you $100 a day and more, for months. Several of writing students have had lucky strikes – they created their own little goldmine with a site that took them an hour or two to set up and promote.
Realistically, your little website will provide a much more modest return, maybe just a hundred or two a month. Who cares? Websites are fun to set up and promote, and was we’ve said, they’re FAST to create.
More on fast and easy websites this coming week.
