How to Make Money Online From Home: Start Your Own Website

Or websites. Start as many as you’d like. Why?

A website is a business that never closes. 

Your store is open 24/7. How is that possible? The internet is always on.

Your store is always open, and over 3 billion people can shop in it.

Think about that. there are over 7 billion people on the planet, and over 3 billion have internet access.  People use the internet to talk to each other, to learn things, and to buy things.  Your website will help them do all three of these things. Each and every one of these people can go to your site and make you money.

So, while you’re sleeping or lounging or hanging out with your family, or on a hammock in Tahiti, your website is still hard at work for you.

Your website doesn’t need to sleep, it can’t get leaky roofs and it will never have an issue with cockroaches.

Starting your own website is one of the best ways to make money online from home, in my experience.

A website about what?

All these things have vast money-making potential in website form.

What are you into? What is the first thing that comes to mind? That’s where you start. That’s your “niche“.

And the beautiful thing, again: your niche can be anything.

How do you make money with your own website?

  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Selling your own products
  • Drop shipping
  • Selling space to advertisers

This is literally it. This is how people make money online. This is how bloggers and vloggers do it. This is how online retailers do it. This is how newspapers do it.

A website is a business. Think of it like a storefront, but instead of the population of your town, all 3 billion people who use the internet can stop in and take a look.

We’re lucky today, because free, easy template programs like Blogger and WordPress make web design possible.

You can make an incredible website without knowing diddly squat about computer science.

I was a complete beginner. I’d never studied computer science, and certainly never sold advertising space. But, I learned how, I had a lot of great help from other online entrepreneurs, and took the time and put in the hours to build out and grow my online businesses.

If you’re still asking yourself “how can I make money online?”, take it from me and every other successful blogger on the planet: start a website. This business model works.
