IS YOUR JOB LITERALLY KILLING YOU?

Is your work killing you
Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Is your work killing youAre you working for the weekend instead of thriving in your current job? If you don’t wake up every morning excited about life and what it has to offer, then it might be time for a change.

 

Signs That It Might Be Time For A Change

  1. If you complain about your work constantly and find it hard to hang out with friends or family without becoming emotional about your situation – it might be time for a change.

  2. If your personal and/or social life isn’t what it used to be. If you can’t find the time to hang out with friends or simply feel too emotionally drained to be around others – it might be time for a change.

  3. If you wake up every morning dreading your day – it might be time for a change.

  4. If you go to bed dreading the next morning – it might be time for a change.

  5. If you find yourself becoming short tempered with a spouse or your kids because you’re so stressed out all the time – it might be time for a change.

  6. Stressing about work outside of work! If you can’t leave your baggage behind – it might be time for a change

 

How the Workplace is Actually Killing You?

STRESS.

According to an article in the Huffing Post, 80% of people stress about their job! And those 80% are at an increased risk for many life-altering factors – including death!

Effects of Stress

 
10 Life Altering Effects of Stress on the Body

  1. Increased Risk for Heart Attack

  2. Increased Risk of Diabetes

  3. Decreased Emotional Well-Being

  4. Strained Relationships

  5. Depression

  6. Accelerated Aging

  7. Burn-out

  8. Obesity

  9. Constant Anger or Resentment

  10. Higher Risk of Death!!!

 

What Can You Do About it?

If your overall quality of life is lacking that certain ‘something’ here are some questions you might want to ask yourself.

  • What is it that you love?

  • What is it that makes you want to get out of bed in the morning?

  • What is it that drives you?

  • What is your dream?

Sit down and really think about those questions for a minute. Think back to a time where you were happy – truly happy. Not just financially stable, but emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually content with your quality of life.

Maybe it takes you back to a dream you had when you were a kid. What happened along the way?

Once you find your passion – conquer it! Go out and do THAT. THAT should be your mission in life.

I literally stay awake at night thinking of what I can say next, thinking about my next post. I keep wondering whose life I can impact tomorrow. If you don’t feel that same excitement – maybe it’s time for your change.

 

 

Turn Your Passion Into YOUR BUSINESS

One of the great things about today’s technology is the internet. You can literally turn any passion into your very own online business! And guess what?!?! They’re ALWAYS hiring!

Okay, not in the sense that you will find a regular 9-5 (although they’re out there), but do you really want to continue to work for someone else?

Creating your own online business is easier than people think. You just need to have the right tools and someone to guide you along the way.

 

Who is the Online Market Business For?

Absolutely anyone and everyone who has a passion and a desire for change.

  • If you have a criminal history and find it hard to get hired – this is the perfect business for you. If you have the time and patience to dedicate yourself through the startup phase – then you will find success in spite of everyone’s doubts

  • The single parent. If you find it hard to work your job AND spend quality time with your kids – you can dedicate a couple hours a day into a new business until it gets off the ground. Before you know it – you could be leaving your 9-5.

  • College Students! Of course, if you’re young and have little commitments, then you can start your life off right by finding something you love – and doing it NOW. No more waiting until your mid-life crisis to realize you need a change.

  • ANYONE WHO WANTS TO FOLLOW THEIR PASSIONS!

But, I’m not saying the online world is for everyone. Maybe your dream is to run you own coffee shop or work constructing houses for people in Malaysia! Whatever IT is, find IT, and do IT.

A YEAR FROM TODAY…

Road with Start
Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Road with StartIT’S THE BEGINNING…

It’s scary when you first venture into a new territory, a new opportunity – a new way of life. It starts with an idea. An idea becomes a plan. A plan turns into actions – and before you know it, you find yourself WAY in over your head.

The excitement wears off and reality sets in. The reality that you’ve been here before. The reality that you’ve failed here before. Not ‘here’ in the sense that you’re doing the same thing. ‘Here’ in the sense that you’ve tried other ways – other means of success, but have found yourself back at square one. Now, you’re hoping to find that perfect fit – just this once.

But hope can easily fade. It’s unknown. It’s scary – and the fear of failing, yet again, is knocking on your heart’s door waiting for the chance to pounce and crush any dreams and thoughts that you could actually succeed.

But it’s JUST the beginning.

And so, after you release yourself from the fetal position for the fifth time today, wipe your tears, and pick yourself up from the bathroom floor, you know NOW’s the time.

Now’s the time to start taking names and kicking ass. And in a year from now, you’ll be all out of names.

I’m writing this mostly because I want to remember what it felt like exactly one year from today. 3 weeks ago I stumbled onto Wealthy Affiliate. I took all the free training I could – I soaked up the information like a sponge.

Then, I upgraded to Premium. Two weeks later (today) I decided to make the leap and dedicate a whole year to this opportunity.

A YEAR’S JOURNEY…

Is it scary? Yep! Is it unknown? Yep! But I want the “me” a year from now to be able to look back and remember what it is I’m risking. I want the “me” a year from now to be able to say, “It was worth it!” I want the “me” a year from now to be someone who seizes even more opportunities, who lives life a little fuller, and who loves “me” a little deeper.

Today

Today, I feel like an underdog. Today, I feel as if there’s so much to learn and I’m already so far behind. Today, is a mixture of fear and excitement.

But…

But a year from now, I will be confident in my abilities. A year from now, I will witness first hand the payoff of the initial sacrifices. A year from now, I will have made a difference.

A year from now, I will be looking forward to another year!

WAHM OPPORTUNITY – KISSES AND WISHES

Kodi with Lip Sense
Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Alright ladies, who doesn’t love long lasting makeup? The problem – most makeup wears off within a couple hours. You leave the house twinning with Angelina Jolie – and by the end of the day you look more like Jabba the Hut!

Okay, so maybe it’s not THAT bad, but it is annoying  when you take the time to doll yourself up only to have about half the amount of lipstick left by the end of the night.

So what if you could wear long lasting makeup AND make money selling it at the SAME time? No sales experience, NO PROBLEM!

MEET KODI

Kodi rocks life wearing many different hats. She is a full time mom of many – biological, adoptive, and foster children fill her home. She is a full time wife and a full time bank manager. So why is featured on our WAHM page?

Let’s look at THE SIDE HUSTLE.

WHAT IS AN INDEPENDENT SALES DISTRIBUTOR?

When someone signs up to be an independent sales distributor, it simply means that a ‘parent’ company enters into an agreement to allow an individual to purchase their products at a discounted rate and sale them for a profit or commission.

Most independent agents are allowed to sell a company’s products via their own business strategy. You can create a company and sell the products without having the same name as the parent company, and you have the freedom to do it all on your own time in your own way.

KISSES AND WISHES

Kodi owns her own home based business called KISSES AND WISHES. She is an independent distributor with a company called Senegence. What is their best selling product? – LipSense.

LIPSENSE

While Senegence offers many different beauty products, they are most well known for the their product called LipSense. What’s LipSense? It’s an all day, long-lasting lip color that truly doesn’t budge!

GETTING STARTED

Kodi started as a proud customer of LipSense and when she began wearing it to work and around town, she noticed everyone was always asking her about her lipstick. She had previously been asked to become a sales distributor but turned it down because the thought of adding another thing into her already crazy life seemed impossible.

But once she noticed she was sending customers to someone else, she quickly changed her mind and signed on to be a sales distributor. She found wearing the product was the best way to promote and sell it!

With Senegence, the commission rate can be as high as 50%, so this is a business opportunity that will make you good money AND is fun at the same time. Who doesn’t love lipstick, right?

WHAT’S THE COST

The start up cost for this company is very low, only $55! You could be spending hundreds more for access to other company’s products. Listen to Kodi’s words of wisdom:

How many success stories do you have to read before you write your own? I’ve bought a lot of things for $55 but only one of them has ever given my a paycheck! I’d love for you to join my team.

 

And you can be part of Kodi’s team TODAY and start your very own business on YOUR terms.

Or, if you just love the product, contact Kodi and get your LipSense TODAY!

Head over to Facebook and Check out Kodi’s Kisses and Wishes page.

VERDICT?

This is legit company and a fantastic way to earn some extra cash on the side!

HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH A BLOG

Money in Hand
Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Money in HandHAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO MAKE MONEY BLOGGING?

 

FIRST THINGS, FIRST – CREATION, PUBLICATION, PROMOTION:


 

  1. Start a Blog. This seems obvious – you can’t make money blogging unless you start. You can’t sit around waiting for the perfect idea or do enough research to become an expert. It’s a learning process that takes time if you want to make money doing it. So simply – START. (Learn how to create your own website HERE)
  2. Create Content. Content is simply everything you put on your Blog – anything your write, pictures you post, music you add, etc… The more content you have, the more traffic you will create.
  3. Establish a Platform. This simply means to centralize the content of your blog and relate it to one or a couple different topics. To build a reputable audience you want to gain their trust and show them why YOU are the expert and why they should read YOUR content.
  4. Update regularly. Yes, it’s hard starting, especially when you won’t see profits right away – it might make you want to quit. DON’T. It might take a few months to begin making money, but the more you post, the more profitable you will become.
  5. Market, Market, Market. Maximize with Social Media. Your blog probably won’t generate much traffic at first, so it’s important to tell everyone you know about it. Market it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – and tell others to pass on the word! (See How to Market Your Business)

 

WHAT IS BLOGGING?


Blogging has become an internet phenomenon since the early 2000s when some of the major blogsite hosts first launched. At first, they were primarily used for political purposes. But now, the sensation has grown and you can find blogs dedicated to just about any subject imaginable.

Blogging can be a tool for businesses to create and promote products, provide reviews, or simply for personal pleasure -creative outlets, rants, etc… But how do you make money with a bog?

Let’s talk about CONTENT MARKETING.

 

WHAT IS CONTENT MARKETING?


Content marketing is simply creating content on your already established Blog that drives people to your website via a search engine. By using certain Keywords related to your topic, internet users will be directed to your site. The more content and keywords you have on your site, the more traffic you will generate. (CLICK HERE for more information on keywords)

 

Reviews.

 

Reviews are one example of content marketing. When people want to know if a particular product is worth their time/money they usually search the internet for reviews before buying. If you can provide them with quality reviews of products/services related to your topic or ‘niche,’ then you can build your reputation as an expert in your field.

 

CONTENT MARKETING STRATEGIES


  1. TONE.  Is your blog primarily academic or more topical? Speaking to your targeted audience in a way they can relate to will build trust and increases their probability of revisiting your site.
  2. KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE. Know your audience and who you want to drive to your blog. By setting the tone of each article, you can communicate clearly and effectively.
  3. PURPOSE. Each article you write should serve a purpose. It should help the reader solve a problem or increase their quality of life in some way.
  4. TIME. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Be upfront and straight forward. Show your client how you are going to solve their problems right way – people don’t go to Blogs to read hours of information.

 

AFFILIATE MARKETING


Once you have established your content and you’re driving people to your site, you can apply to be an ‘affiliate marketer.’ This simply means asking permission to use a company’s banner on your webpage via a special link they provide.

 

 

 

Almost every product you review or promote will have an affiliate link associated with it – companies want to drive people to their websites, so they’re willing to pay a small commission fee to you for advertising their products.

In order to get the most out of your affiliate links, try to keep them within the theme of your website. If you’re blogging about Softball Pitching Techniques, then find affiliates associated with Softball or sports.

It’s easy to find a company’s affiliate application. Simply Google ‘company name + affiliate.’ Once you’ve located the webpage, just fill out the application. Sometimes you have to wait for approval and other times you’re approved right away.

A good way to utilize your affiliate marketing is to notify your readers when a particular product or service goes on sale!

 

GOOGLE ADSENSE


Applying for Google AdSense is similar to affiliate marketing. Except you allow Google to post the ads – you don’t have control over what they are.

 

OTHER SOURCES OF INCOME


If you have created your own product or you have your own service to offer – for example, a cleaning business – then you can create a website/blog to promote yourself! You can sell things via your blog or website – handcrafts, gourmet goods, eBooks.

You can also offer your services as a guest speaker or personal coach!

There are many facets and strategies to learn when trying to make money with a blog. People dedicate their whole careers to researching the world of internet marketing. But this is the basics and is enough to get you started! Like I said, the most important thing is to START.

I hope you found this article helpful. If you have any comments or questions please drop them in the comments section below!

Go be awesome today!

THE SWAGBUCKS REVIEW

Swagbucks
Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Swagbucks

Swagbucks has become an international phenomenon. Since it’s birth in 2008, Swagbucks is still one of the most visited websites on the internet. But why? What’s it all about? You can get the inside scoop here with THE SWAGBUCKS REVIEW.

Join Swagbucks!

HOW DOES SWAGBUCKS WORK?


 

Overview

Swagbucks is an website that offers it’s users different ways of earning ‘swagbucks’ that can be traded in for various gift cards. There are a few different ways of earning swagbucks, or “SB” for short.

 

  1. SEARCHING THE WEB. If you’re going to be surfing the web, you might as well earn a little $ while doing so, right? After creating your account, just set Swagbucks to your default search engine.

  2. WATCH ADS AND COMMERCIALS. If you like watching commercials and can sit through their 30 minute videos, you can earn 5 SB for simply sitting on your butt!

  3. SHOP. Who doesn’t like to shop? Want to earn money doing it? If you shop through their ‘parent’ stores on their website, you can earn SB.

  4. SURVEYS.

  5. PLAYING GAMES.

Once you earn so many SB, then those can be redeemed for gift cards to stores such as Amazon or Wal-Mart. For example: 300 SB = $3 Amazon Gift Card.

 

GETTING STARTED


It’s really easy to get started at Swagbucks. All you need to do is create your FREE account and you start earning right away. Click HERE to create your account today!

In order to take full advantage of the earnings, you should set your default search engine to Swagbucks. I mean, you’re on Google everyday right? Why not earn a little just for surfing the web!

Before running out to the store, see if you can make your purchase through Swagbucks. By shopping online through their site at various stores such as Wal-Mart, Amazon, Home Depot, Groupon, (and SO many others) you can earn SB for buying things you were already going to purchase anyway!

And, if you use the site-to-store or online pick up option, you can place your order and then head to the store. It will be waiting for you when you arrive! Forget about browsing the shelves or fighting the crowd! This can save time and earn you money!

 

PROS


  • Easy to use and Easy to earn SB

  • You actually earn SB by doing things you would normally do in your everyday life

  • Refer a friend program. You earn $5 for each person you refer to their website who creates an account.

 

CONS


  • Swagbucks can be very addicting and take up ALOT of your time.

  • In order to earn Swagbucks by ‘playing games’ you have to buy something through their ‘in-app’ purchase options. Usually it’s $1 for 18 SB.

  • The Surveys are long, tedious, and sometimes you make it to the end before realizing that you DON’T qualify – a huge time waster!

  • 5 SB for sitting through a 30 min. video isn’t worth my time.

  • It can take a long time before you can actually redeem your points.

  • Swagbucks is constantly updating it’s website and there have been other complaints of individuals not receiving their full points or payouts.

 

PERSONAL OPINION


Is Swagbucks Legit? Yeah, but…

It’s not what I would consider a long term solution or a great way to earn money online. It can be fun for a while and if you’re looking for a few extra bucks here and there go for it!

If you commit to doing something on there everyday, you could potentially earn $1000+ a year. But that’s not really worth my time and effort to make a true attempt. But for now, I’ll use it as my search engine and maybe earn enough to buy a gift card by Christmas.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY BY WRITING ONLINE

Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Lady writing on Laptop

Do you love to write? Do you want to get paid to write?

 

You don’t have to be a published author or have an English degree to learn how to make money by writing online. There are many websites that will allow you to write and publish content on their site – or sell your content to a client.

 

WEBSITES THAT WILL PAY YOU FOR YOUR WORK


1. Listverse

Are you good at making lists? Not just grocery lists, but lists of interesting facts. This website will pay you to come up with an interesting article of the TOP 10 (you fill in the blank) For example: Top 10 Women Serial Killers, etc…

 

GETTING STARTED

You will need your Top 10 list to get started. Then, just head to their SUBMISSIONS page, fill in the information and wait for a response. It’s really easy to submit you work.

A few tips: you should have at least 1-2 paragraphs for each item on your Top 10 list and cite reputable sources.

You HAVE to have a PayPal Account. They will NOT consider your work without one. (But creating one is free and easy.)

If you get accepted, they pay $100/article. It’s one of the highest payouts you can receive for little work. Don’t get me wrong, you have to put effort into your research, but if you can submit 4-5 articles a month, that’s some great pocket change!

 

2. COLLEGE HUMOR

College Humor is always looking for articles, and as the title suggests, they should to be funny. This can range from satire, political memes, to simply sarcastic tones. Its goal is to deliver the truth with a little humor.

 

Getting Stated

To get started, you will need to email them your ‘pitch’ for an idea. Once approved, they will ask you to go ahead and write your article. Once accepted, they will pay you $35 for a single article, or $50 for a multi-page article.

 

3. HUBPAGES

Hubpages is similar to a hosting site. It’s not the same as having your own Blog, but more of a writer’s portfolio within their context. They will allow you to write about almost anything! You can really get creative here. (But you still have to get it approved.)

The catch – you will need Google AdSense and you get paid primarily through promoting the work yourself.

 

Getting Started

It’s really easy to sign up and create an account with Hubpages. Once you have your ‘writer’s space’ you submit your articles. Each article should be 700+ words in length and then you just sit back and wait for approval.

 

4. WORKONLINEBLOG

This is a very competitive writing site, but if you can create a good review you can be paid $50/article. They are looking for advice on your personal experience as a contractor or business owner.

 

Getting Started

It’s easy to submit an article for review, but they want each submission to be 1500-3000 words in length. Also, they only have room for 1 guest article every 2 months, so your competition is fierce! But, if you can write about advice and tips on business related ideas, you have a good shot!

 

5. CONTENA

Contena is also a very competitive writing market. They are not always hiring writers, but if you fill out your information, they will text you once a job opens up. It’s a great company with good reviews. It’s hard to get in, but once you’re in it can be a great opportunity.

Contena does have a membership fee to be able to join and access their jobs.

 

6. BLOGMUTT

Blogmutt is a company that other websites use to build content on their websites. Companies hire Blogmutt – Blogmutt hires writers. See my FULL REVIEW HERE.

 

Getting Started

It’s fairly easy to get started with Blogmutt. You fill out your submission form and then submit a sentence based on their qualifications related to a grammatical rule. Once you are approved, you can start writing for specific companies per their requirements.

If your article is approved, they pay you $8. The articles are generally around 250 words, so they payout isn’t bad for the length of each article.

 

7. IWRITER

Iwriter is very similar to Blogmutt, but their payout is dependent on their client’s needs and your experience with the site. You get paid anywhere from $1 – $50 per article.

Starting out, you can only accept jobs on the lower payout scale, but as you build your reputation you can make decent money if you can produce high quality articles for top paying clients.

 

8. PUBLISH AN EBOOK ON AMAZON.

HOW TO MARKET YOUR BUSINESS

Seo Marketing
Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Marketing is such a broad term. And how you go about it all depends on what audience you’re targeting.

 

WHAT IS MARKETING?


If your new to the business industry and you’re just starting out, the term ‘marketing’ can get a little confusing. It can mean anything from promoting a product and selling it to research and advertising.

 

In short, Marketing is:

  1. Telling People about your business! It’s the strategies and actions you take to let people know you are there.

  2. Marketing is what drives people to your business or website.

  3. Marketing leads to traffic – this could be virtual (online) or just getting someone to the source of where you sell your product.

  4. Marketing leads to traffic – and traffic leads to customers!

TYPES OF MARKETING


If you’re looking for an article on ‘what is marketing’ then you’ll most likely find anything ranging from complicated reviews with a bunch of business terms to the good ol’ fashioned word of mouth.

 

Marketing can be done in many different ways:

  1. Word of Mouth – simply tell people about your business – and not just your friends, everyone you meet

  2. Business Cards – even better, hand out business cards with your website or physical store address

  3. Flyers – Hang up flyers at local businesses: Most ‘mom and pop’ stores have a community bulletin board that allow businesses to advertise in their store.

  4. Craigslist – you can advertise for free in their “Community” section

  5. Social Media Sites – If you have something to sell, tell the world via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – any and all platforms. If you want to reach the most people, your business should have multiple social media accounts linked to it.

  6. Business Website – having a website dedicated to discussing what your business has to offer. Don’t just sell your product – tell people how your product can benefit them in some way.

 

KEY FACTORS IN MARKETING YOUR BUSINESS


When you have a product to sell, the first thing to know is WHO you are targeting. What is your target audience and how to do they receive most of their information? For instance, younger audiences tend toward social media.

 

Don’t just sell your product! Nobody likes a pushy salesman. Instead, focus on selling the solution to their problem. Explain to them how your product or service will benefit them.

 

Customer Service! Don’t take for granted the digital age of every transaction being done via the internet. Even if you’re selling a product to someone across the ocean, be sure you are connecting with them in some way. This could be a simple Thank You email or reaching out to them after a purchase to get their feedback.

 

Even if a person isn’t a customer, show them you care about helping them. If you can sell yourself or your business, then they will venture back to you.

 

You don’t need a business marketing background in order to be successful at promoting a product or service – all you need is passion, consistency, and right tools.

But what is online marketing?

 

ONLINE MARKETING


In my last article I listed different strategies to ‘tell’ people about your website. But how do you reach people across the world – what drives them to your website?

When you put content on your website – meaning anything you write, sell, or promote, you are creating a list of keywords. That means, if someone searches for a particular phrase in a search engine that reflects the words/phrases on your website, your page will be listed as a match to their search.

 

Sounds Good, Right? But there’s a catch…

There are literally billons of websites – even websites that haven’t been updated in years across the internet.

For example: if I Google Search ‘tents’ I come up with over 104,000,000 webpages that fit my search criteria.

But what if I Google Search ‘camping tents?’ Now I come up with 70,500,000 results. That’s better, but still an enormous amount of competition that I am competing against.

 

THE QUESTION?


How do I write Content to rank (or move up) higher for search engines?

 

KEYWORD RESEARCH

You should know which audience you are targeting. Once you know your target audience, there are tools that can help you narrow down exactly what people are searching for?

Have you ever noticed that when you type something into Google it will give you some suggestions? That’s because Google is remembering a keyword or keyword phrase that someone else has typed. The more someone types in a particular keyword or phrase, the higher it is on the suggestion list.

Back to our tent example. If I type in ‘camping tents’ into Google, I immediately get suggestions for ‘large camping tents,’ ‘camping tents Walmart,’ and ‘family camping tents.’

Now my search is becoming more narrow and the options for pages that relate to my topic are becoming less and less.

 

THE ANSWER


If you can use keywords or key phrases on your website on a regular basis, your website will become more noticeable and move up the rank in a search engine.

There are many keyword tools on the internet you can use for your research.

Here is my #1 recommendation for Keyword Research! Jaaxy.

 

SEO – Search Engine Optimization (THE BASICS)


Now let’s talk about Search Engine Optimization. Keywords are just one part for getting your website ranked higher on Google (or any other search engine). Other tips include linking your pages on your website.

This means if you mention a particular subject that you’ve already discussed, link your page back to itself! Google really likes this.

Google also likes when you post new content. Keeping your website up to date will tell Google you are still providing information on your website relevant to users. (Remember, Google is a business too and they want to provide the best possible service also!)

 

ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR MARKETING YOUR WEBSITE ONLINE


Once you’ve done your keyword research for your targeted audience, and you’ve told absolutely everyone you meet about your site, AND you’re keeping your website updated regularly – you should be generating some traffic.

MARKETING = TRAFFIC = CUSTOMERS = MONEY

  1. Know everything on your webpage! Whether you keep up with a daily or weekly blog, or you outsource the writing, YOU are responsible for everything – every word, every promotion, every AD. If it’s not relevant to what you’re selling, you will lose trust with a potential customer base.

  2. Offer Free Trials, Discounts, or Promotions

  3. Create an email list of everyone who visits your website – then, when you have discounts or promotions to offer, email them to your visitor list!

  4. Offer a Money Back Guarantee – this will not only ease a customer’s mind about your product, but it also lets them know that you have a sense of confidence and pride in what you have to offer!

NOT SELLING ANYTHING? NO PROBLEM!

You don’t always have to sell a product in order to make money with a website.

Spread the Love. Share and Enjoy!

Websites can be as complex or as simple as you want them to be. You can learn how to create a website for free and as your business progresses you can update your website hosting service to unlock some of the more complicated features.

 

IT’S AS EASY AS 1-2-3 (and 4)!

  1. Choose a hosting site

  2. Create an Account

  3. Pick a Theme

  4. Choose your domain name

Now all you need to do is start editing your content! You can build a website for free right now AND you can do it in under 30 seconds! See the video for details!

This video demonstrates how to set up an account for WordPress – which is one of the most popular website building platforms on the market. But if it’s not for you, here is a list of some other popular website building platforms:

  1. WIX

  2. WEEBLY

  3. eHost.com

  4. Blue Host – which has become VERY popular lately.

 


Bluehost.com Web Hosting $3.95

 

Each hosting platform has its own pros and cons. Most offer a free webpage with limited space. The free versions will always come with less ‘bells and whistles,’ but it’s a good place to start – especially for a beginner. You can always upgrade later on down the road.

 

Website hosting pages can be difficult to navigate if you are true beginner. Terms like ‘coding,’ ‘CSS,’ ‘html,’ and others don’t occur in most people’s everyday vocabulary. I would suggest finding a training program if you’re serious about making money with your website.

 

Wealthy Affiliate offers one of the best training programs for navigating a WordPress website. You get 10 FREE lessons – which can jump start your knowledge of how to build a better business website.

No credit cards or payment needed. You get access to the lessons as soon as you create an account with your email.
