Before you even think of taking your little spot on the web, what should you be sure of, understand
and be aware of. What are the things that will make my site worthwhile and an asset to the web? What should I create to be able to cash in and earn some revenue for my days and many years of hard work? Well, I would like to propose some basic ideas.
If I had a dollar every instant someone said they wanted to build a web page
, but didnt know where to begin, I would be well, rich. The problem doesnt seem to be the actual creation of the site, but more the what should it be about aspect. Please note that, I am not in any way referring to e-commerce sites, corporate sites or any commercial sites, but purely about interest and general sites.
The problem lies in the fact that the essence of page
creation has moved radically from where it started as an information and entertainment medium, it has changed to almost the opposite and in some cases even to complete rubbish.
So, before you even think of acquiring your little spot on the web, what should you be sure of, know and be aware of. What are the things that will make my page
worthwhile and an asset to the web? What should I create to be able to cash in and earn some revenue for my days and months of hard work? Well, I would like to propose some basic ideas.
Firstly, I firmly believe that any author (web site creator) should concentrate on things they understand
about or at least very familiar with. There would be absolutely no point for me to create a site on nuclear fusion (in fact starting would be a problem). You have to beginning with something that you can inform and/or entertain with, if you want your visitors to return at some stage. Use this wonderful platform to share your views and express yourself to the world. Not many other mediums allow this to such a massive extent. Share yourself!
The next important aspect, if you do want your web site to really draw some attention on a ongoing basis, would be to ensure that the content on your page
is as timeless as possible. I recently helped my mom create a page
(http://www.mom2me.com) to host her recipes and it is an excellent example of a site that is timeless. Recipes do not get old. The experience on your website
, unless you want to constantly update it, should not get old either and a sizeably efficient idea would be to choose a topic for your website
, where the experience never ages. Jokes, photos, great articles etc. are all grand examples of non-ageing content. Blogs are successful
and quick uploading but still the material needs to be timeless as far as possible.
Try to be original. Easier said than done, I know, but try to not to initial
yet another site featuring the identical
old jokes. Not only will you never be able to ever monetize your website
(earn revenue from it), but it would just be a copy of another persons expression. Something as simple as generating a page
on a smaller section of an existing page
could be a nice
idea. What about a site dedicated to jokes about plumbers (if you really have to do a joke page
). Be original not only in what you create, but what you represent as well.
Start small. I do not want to be the bearer of bad news, but you are not going to initial
a Google in the next year. Try to ensure that whatever you base your website
on, is within your financial ambit and instant sphere. You do not want to overextend yourself and leave the page
halfway complete, by the measure
you realize that you have lost interest. It is always easier to add to a completed site and see it grow even bigger. Set realistic goals and try to achieve them within a specific period. Planning is critical and if you do it correctly you will never have to have those horrible under construction pages on your website
Lastly, and most likely most importantly of all, consider how you are going to attract visitors, hopefully repeatedly, to ensure that you may earn revenue from your hard work. If you are thinking about building
use of Affiliate Programs or programs like Googles Adsense, always remember that they will require visitors. Visitors in return require a reason to visit in the first place and secondly to come back again and again. The only way you are going to ensure any form of revenue is by making sure your page
is attractive, informative and commonly a good place to visit.
In a perfect world, all sites would be as I described above, but sadly that is not the case. The workable news is that due to the fact that more than 50% of sites are not that sizeably efficient, you are already halfway there, without even starting. Best of luck and I look forward to visiting your nice
