Making Money on the Web

I have been spending quite a bit of time, looking for ways to make money on the web.  Something where I can just sit at my computer and watch the bank balance go up.

I haven’t found it yet.

I’ve been wondering how many people actually are making money with a solely web-based business.  Does affiliate marketing work?  How about Adsense and other advertising programs? In  this research I found one site particularly helpful. It is SitePoint.com. They have a marketplace section where people can buy and sell established websites.  In doing so, the sellers disclose how much money they are making from the site.

There are lots of sites that are don’t have much content, that are really just trying to get people in to click on the ads. For the  most part, they were not making enough to cover the hosting fees.  The sites that did do well offered real products, or real information.  A site that people would want to go to. 

I have to go work on my content….. 😉

What If…?

What if there were no free templates on the web?
What if sites like WordPress, Joomla, and Blogger didn’t exist?
What if there were no free tutorials, forums, or discussions where you could get your questions answered?
Could you afford to have a website?

I couldn’t.

What if your favorite website was ugly and disorganized?
What if it was full of spelling errors and typos?
What if it was hosted on a server that was slow and buggy?

Would it still be your favorite website?

I don’t think so.

What if you had to pay to watch the news, check your stocks, or get a weather report.
What if you had to go to the library to do research, for school, for work, or for your child’s medical problem?
What if the world didn’t know you existed because there was no MySpace?

Could you get as much done?

I couldn’t.

Please support your favorite websites. I know many people work very hard to provide all the great resources on the web. Most are doing it for free or very little money. So please, buy the product, make a donation, or just click on an ad that interests you.
Just think…
What if there were no GAMES!

7 Things to Know about Money

1. Money is a tool for trade, nothing more, nothing less. Money does not make you more special, or more lovable. Fancy homes and cars, expensive watches and clothing, these do not make people like you more. How much money you have, or appear to have, says nothing about you as a person. I have met both poor people and rich people who were amazing human beings. I have also met both poor and rich people who were jerks. Your money is not your personality.
