Making Money Online

How to make sustainable money online

This series of writings are going to be about my attempts to make money online, what I have tried and what ideas I still have. Lets start off by saying that there seems not to be an easy way to start making hundreds of Rands straight away, it takes time to build an income from the web but at the same time its not impossible.

Here are two ways that I have successfully made a few bucks so far.

Blogging and Websites with Google Adsense

I am sure you have visited many websites that display adverts on their pages. Most people find this annoying and load add blockers to avoid seeing the ads. All my websites have adverts, not to annoy the readers but simply to try and make some money to fund my website building hobby. All my domains (Websites) cost me quite a few Rands every month for hosting and yearly renewals.

Signing up with Googles Adsense program allows you to add adverts on your site. When visitors click on these adverts the owners of the accounts make some money. I have been using Adsense on all my sites over the last few years and to date have earned a total of R15,716.00.

Unfortunately this hasn’t made me rich yet and I cant give up my regular job yet but plans are being made to increase my earnings with the Adsense program.

The big secret to making money with Googles Adsense is actually quite simple. In order to have visitors on your site clicking on the adverts you need traffic ie. plenty of visitors. Getting traffic to your site takes some time and various methods can be used but I will explain this in another post soon.

So next time you visit a site and see the adverts on the pages just understand that its someone just trying to make some extra money and not out to annoy you at all.

Online Shop for selling your products

The second method I use to make some money is by having a website selling various Data Collection devices and printers. This way of making money is my primary source of income.

The website sells and gives information on Barcode Scanners, Barcode Printers and Portable Data Terminals.

If you have a product or service to sell or promote, websites are the ideal way of advertising to the world and doesn’t need to cost you a fortune. All you need is a registered domain name which is the name of your website and obviously a website to display on the domain. Sounds difficult? not at all! If you need a website, simply contact me and together we can set you up at reasonable rates.

That in a nutshell is the two methods I use to make money on the web to date. The Adsense method to make an extra buck or two and the website selling products which contributes to my main source of income. Hope you find this information useful!
I will give more info on my new online ventures soon and explain the methods to drive traffic to your site
