How To Create Your First Website To Make Free Money

I recommend that people use free techniques if you are just starting an online business. Too many people spend their bottom dollar buying a domain, setting up a paid auto responder, and organizing paid web hosting only to find that an online business is not for them. A better solution is to start using free tools and switch to paid services once you start to see some success.
The first thing to organize is a place to host your site. I’ve found that most beginners should use a free blog to get started. When using a blog, you don’t need to know any specialized computer language like html. Entering content on a blog is as easy as using a word processor.

  1. Get started by registering for a blog at WordPress dot com. It is free and very easy to do. You also get a ton of features – they offer dozens of attractive templates and allow you to provide information, articles, photos, and videos on home business ideas your site. It is an all-in-one solution that is absolutely free.
  2. When you first enter the WordPress site, click login. Then create a username. This will become part of your blog’s name, so give it some thought. Make sure it is relevant to the topic of your blog. Then fill in the information they ask for, your email address and accept the legal issues.
  3. Click Gimme A Blog! WordPress will do all the work to create your blog. You can then go to the next page.
  4. On the next page you will see your domain name. It will consist of yourblogname dot WordPress dot com. If this is your first site, copy the URL into notepad and save it to a file on your computer so you don’t forget it. This domain name is how you, search engines, and your visitors will access your blog.
  5. Consider a related title for your blog. This title will appear at the top of every page, so choose it carefully.
  6. Kick back and pat yourself on the back, you’ve just completed setting up your first money-making website.
  7. Once you’ve filled out the details in your WordPress activation email, you can start blogging (and earn some money). And the best part: it didn’t cost you a penny!
