Another incredibly easy way to get a site up and running quickly is to install a content management system (CMS) like WordPress or Joomla. These are included in most hosting packages and typically install with the press of a couple of buttons. So this can take care of your content (by having your audience post to these blogs you are getting automatic content). But the designs leave a lot to be desired.
I have also been actually “marketing” the site the way you would market anything else — I tell people I meet, friends, family, acquaintances, salespeople, anyone we think would get some value out of the site. While it seems old-fashioned, it has generated some people coming in to take a look. I have made it a signature on all of my e-mail so that when I send e-mail, people can learn about the site. I also submitted the site itself to my web design software which has caused a number of people to come in to look at the site.
But the lesson was well learned. I bit the bullet, picked up the pieces, and behaved as if nothing had happened. I was determined to make full use of what I had purchased. Looking back at the situation, I recalled that taking part in MLM activities was never on my agenda in the first place. Learning how to make websites was.
B. Wants websites that lay outside the standard template forms. In other words, you basically have to stick with the standard template in which you can resize and move around. However, this still is limiting to some but not many.
A good reason to stay on top of your site maintenance is so you can always delete negative content and spam if it happens to appear on your site. This is especially true for the blog owners out there and people with forums. A good site designer is always there to take out the trash so that it doesn’t accumulate.
At this moment, cgi scripts catch my attention. Cgi is short for Common Gateway Interface. They need a bit of tweaking in order to work because they must run on the web server on the host. Recently i had the chance to install a cgi script on a server. It took me a few days of tweaking and communication before it worked, as it should. They are not for the faint-hearted beginner. But once the beginner has acquired the necessary knowledge, these scripts shouldn’t be a problem to install. Once they work, you can forget about them, because they will run by themselves, automatically.
I find that some money can be made from this. It depends on how well you design your website and how well you encourage your visitors to click on the banners. Your website has to be carefully designed and the wordings selected to induce people to go to the merchant you represent. Some merchants pay 5%, some 10%, and some more. By carefully choosing the merchant to match the contents of your website you will get more click-throughs. More click-throughs means more sales. It’s a numbers game.
