5 TRUTHS ABOUT MAKING MONEY ONLINE

5 TRUTHS ABOUT MAKING MONEY ONLINE


Part One
As a webmaster and a programmer, I often meet many people ask me “How a website does makes money for the owner”. I often, first, laugh then easily tell them making money online is not as they think that once a website is live it will start making money. The owner must plan how he intends to make money from the website if he really wants to make money from the site.
The following points help:

Truth #1
1      YOU DON’T MAKE MONEY BY JUST HAVING A WEBSITE ALONE
One sure thing is that you always pay either per month or per annum for hosting your website. So you see the sure the is, as long as your website is live, you spend whether you plan or not. However, to make money from it you must plan on how to make money from it. You must offer service on your website worth paying for and you get users pay for the service. There are many ways to make money online, whether through a website you own or not. Follow my subsequent post as I will be gathering my years of experience in this internet world and share with you the useful things you need to make money online.

Truth #2
2.      YOU DON’T GENERATE MONEY FOR THE SITE OWNER BY JUST VIEWING THE SITE ALONE
Now here is another misconception some people have about using a website. I have overheard people say, “Hey, I won’t spend my time browsing, viewing the photos on Facebook just to generate money for [FACEBOOK OWNER -
Mark Zuckerberg]”. No site owner gets a dime for visitors browsing their site alone. Site owners may get money when you click on an affiliate link on their website or when you click on ad etc. Yes the more users a website get online per-time, called traffic, the more it attracts companies interest to advertise with it.

Truth #3
3.      YOUR PRODUCT OR SERVICE MUST BE NEEDED
Don’t think that the moment you just post your product or services online you will have customers who are interested in buying what you have. Yes, your viewers might love what services you render on your website but what will make the user pay for any of the services is if he or she really needs that particular service you are offering him or her. No one pays for something he does not really have need for except he is not sure of what he needs. So, you really want to make money online try to offer quality products or services that meet the needs of those that visit your website per time.



Truth #4
4.      BE READY TO PAY FOR SALES YOU MAKE
While most internet users who sell online will tell you that you don’t have to pay to sell online, that is not true. Whether you are selling on a commercial e-commerce website or on your personal e-commerce website or even any website, the website often need to have payment gateways integrated into it for payment via cards or online transfer to be possible. Most (In fact all) payment gateways are not free, you pay for some services in some ways. As I have seen, all payment gate ways charge for their total services they render you to help get payment transactions done. Some are high while some are low charges. However, one sure thing is that you must pay for the services provided to you for payment capability by the payment gateway service providers. If you are a seller on an e-commerce website like Konga, Aliexpress, Jumia etc. then you also pay for these services to the owner of the e-commerce website who in turns pay the payment gateway service providers
To be continued…

How Traffic Brings Money:
This is how it works, when other new – unpopular website are launched, especially those that are into real business and want their business to get expanded, they will want to advertise their website so that their target market scattered over the internet can get to know their site and do business with them. But such companies will have to look for a site that has very high traffic – and more helpful – sites that do have traffic involving users who are interested in their kind of business. If they find any, they pay a negotiated fee with the website owner and they place their advert on the fly which will be visible to other users as soon as the visit they visit the site.
This is not the same with ads which has different types such as Pay per Click (PPC) etc. Pay per Click is not negotiable as the pay per click is a pre-fixed amount determined by the owner of the ad appearing on your website. You can go online to know which ad program is more rewarding in the world wide internet. Need mention of affiliate marketing.
