If you are new to the business and stumbled here after watching the nth video from some money-making guru who wanted to make you a millionaire overnight for $49.99, your search for answers is over. Here you will learn the truth about how websites make money for real, and how to monetize your sites with your sweat and hard work. That is right; I said ‘work’ because the first thing you have to learn is that easy Internet money is just a myth. It does not exist. It is possible to generate cash online through blogs, and create Internet-money-earning Web sites, but it is far from being something easy that ‘anyone can do’. It takes time, patience and creativity. Let me first clear up that this is a business for-profit site. I do sell stuff and run Google AdSense here, but you can access hundred percent of the information for free. I will explain to you in detail how I will be making this site profitable in a short while.
You may or may not know that a money-earning Web site is. Of course, it is a Web site that makes money for its owner. The term is used in Internet marketing to refer to a niche Web site, which means a site that covers some particular topic or focuses around a unique product, for example ‘dog training’. Sites like ‘dog training’ that deal with very specific, non mainstream, topics are called micro niche sites. A macro niche site is an on-line-money-making site that deals with a broader range of topics like health, wealth, self-development or sex. This Web site’s main topic are Internet-money-earning Web sites, but is in itself a money-earning site in the overcrowded niche of wealth. There is some confusion between Internet marketers themselves regarding the distinction between micro and macro niches. If you are interested in my own take on the subject, please check out this article.
So how do websites make money? There are many ways to put some dollars, euros, or whatever other currency you prefer in the pocket. ‘Direct sales’ refers to goods which are sold directly to a customer. These can be physical goods or electronic goods. For example, a Web site named ‘Big Bad Toy Store’ sells vintage toys to collectors, and is therefore an example of this type of money-earning Web site. Affiliate marketing is when one sells goods on one’s site on behalf of a third party, and gets paid a commission for every sale made. For example, one can sell Amazon products on one’s own site, in which case, one is acting as an affiliate to Amazon, and they will pay a commission on successful sales. Running advertisements such as Google AdSense is another way to monetize a site and get paid every time someone clicks on the advertisements. Other sites offer a service to their users, typically by connecting them with each other. Examples of this form of monetization are eBay that connects buyers with sellers, or dating sites. Creating on line sites that can make money is a very complicated and frustrating process. It can take several months to start seeing any profits coming in. Setting up the Web site itself is
extremely relatively easy. The difficult bits are the part that comes before the actual creation of the site, i.e. finding good keywords, and what follows afterwards, i.e. marketing and search engine optimization. Of course, if you happen to make it, the prize will be your financial freedom which is well worth the trouble.

This Web site’s business model is based on two forms of marketing, which I firmly consider to be the future of any on-line venture: inbound marketing and attention getting marketing. Whether you are an ‘intermediate’ marketer, who has just started out his adventure in the exciting world of on-line-money-making sites, or are already making a living and a name in the field finding keywords that have made you rich, thank you so much for stopping by! In a few words, this is what this Web site is all about: I have never built a money-earning Web site in my life, or generated cash through Web sites in any way. I will be creating at least seven money earning sites, the first of which is this one you are seeing now: a site about money-earning sites, which is itself an on-line site, which aims to make money. I am documenting all my strategies, earnings, loses, and techniques on this blog as well as my YouTube channel for each of the sites that I build including this one. The fact that so far I haven’t made any money and I am plainly admitting it is not the only novelty that comes with this experiment. Besides being 100% honest and truthful about all my selling strategies, I am also going to open you the door on my life and share with you many of my most intimate secrets. Many entrepreneurs, who try these sort of experiments talk business all the time and do so from the point of view of someone who has already been successful in making a living on line. When they refer to the obstacles that they had to overcome to find the right keyword that took them to success, they do so in the past tense. Here I am documenting my progress almost in real time, and giving you full access to my personal life, my family, my friends and my lifestyle. Both those of you who want to follow my footsteps and those who, having already made it to the other side, are coaching beginners can get a better grasp of topics such as:
- Motivation: How important it is in order to start a project like this. How to determine if a newcomer to Internet marketing has the drive that is required to actually succeed.
- Realistic Expectations of a Beginner: Do I truly know how Web sites make money? Am I doing keyword research in the right way and employing the correct SEO techniques?
- Stress Management: How to deal effectively with the stress that inevitably accompanies those first months of hard work where no cash flows in, and the frustration that sets in as a result of this.
- Time Management: Much hard work is needed to create a money-earning Web site. Time becomes a major issue especially to those (like me) who have no funds to outsource.
- Common Mistakes: Those mistakes that beginners inevitably make experimenting with various techniques to monetize a blog..
Keep in mind that I myself don’t know if I have enough motivation, if I am able to deal with the stress, manage my time effectively and avoid those mistakes that may lead me and my sites into becoming frozen food for pandas! This is the beauty of my little experiment; we shall see what happens together. What I can say, now, is that I have a lot of motivation, I am a fairly intelligent person and I love this business. Normally I do not endure stress too well, tough. [Note added on 28th November 2013: This has caused me to want to throw in the towel a few times. Just check out my rants in a few of my ‘Saturday updates’, as well as on the Warrior Forum. I am still here, though…]

Welcome to my Web site, everyone! This resource is temporarily unavailable!
WARNING: This post contains greedy affiliate links! ‘Affiliate’ refers to promoting services on behalf of a third party. This is one way in which a Web site can generate cash online. For example, I am an affiliate for Site5. When a user clicks on my affiliate link and purchases a hosting package, the company pays me a referral fee. In other words, if you purchase any items through my links, I get a commission at no extra cost to you. In some cases you will pay less than you would through a non-affiliate link. If you do not want me to get paid for my work in delivering this awesome free content to you, just take note of the product’s name and do a google search in a separate window without clicking on my links first. If you do that, I am perfectly OK with it and I shall still love you… :/ …what the heck, no I am not…if you do that, curse you!!! 🙁 I am kidding, of course. Also take note that this article gets regularly updated with new, useful tips and information, as I become more and more proficient in monetizing Web sites. Unlike the updates made to other articles, anyones I make to this one will not be stated as such. The reason for this is to avoid making this resource unreadable Another thing to remember is that there are links to almost every single article I wrote here, but you don’t need to read everything to start building your own money-earning site.
