Making Money With Your Website
Obviously, if you are a business, you can use your web site to display your products and sell them by mail order. Lots of businesses do - they construct their web pages and sit back and wait for the money to roll in ... and wait ... and wait ... and wait. The usual thing that happens, is no one finds them and they make no sales. They then give up, and from that moment, are convinced that all this talk about the Internet is a load of rubbish! The answer is, that you must publicize your web site. Having publicized it, you must keep doing so. Read the section on publicizing your web site for hints on how to do this.

Even if you are not selling, you can still make money from your web pages. You do this by advertising for other people. Don't get the idea that you will become rich though. Advertisements on the World Wide Web are not well paid, despite the fact that they can more accurately target their audience. For some examples, follow this link. By advertising for others on your site, you can get paid:

  • For every time someone clicks on your link, banner or button
  • For every confirmed sale made as a result of someone following a link from your site
  • For every sale made as a recommendation from your site
  • For sales made from the sites of others who set a link on their pages, as a result of following your link
  • Although they will never grace our site, the X-rated banners pay the highest rates and are thus one of the most popular on the web. NO! we don't have a link for you to follow!
For an example of how you can persuade people to make you money, try looking at this idea. The money tree. If people do click on any of the advertisements they see on this site, then the site owner must be making a fortune! OK - we admit it, the first time we went there, we clicked and clicked and clicked.  :)

There are  big catches however to putting advertisements on your site:

  • Some of the advertisements are down right ugly and will spoil the appearence of your page.
  • Some advertisements are slow to load.
  • Too many advertisements will discourage people from going to your web site in the first place.
  • The majority of free space sites forbid paid advertising - This site - cybercities does, but will, at the moment, allow unpaid advertisements such as the one at the top of this page.
