Is It Possible to Publish Your Website for Free?
Are you looking for ways in which to publish a website for free? Yes, it is possible but did you know that you can actually earn money off a free website too? Even though these websites aren’t as professional as having your own hosted domain, you can certainly create a free website, if you’re on a budget, and earn money from it.
Let’s take a look at three simple steps to do this:
Choosing the web platform
You could create a free website on WordPress or Blogger. These services will give your website a blog type look. You could also consider signing up with Hubpages or Squidoo if you want to create a more traditional looking website. Try out all of these services to determine which one you like the best. There’s money to be earned. Create an account with the service you like the best. You obviously aren’t going to make any money if you don’t even have a website.
Publishing the right content
It’s important for you to first publish some interesting information that is going to help your readers identify with your brand and your website. Don’t start publishing content straight away. Also, you should read the terms and conditions of the service you are using regarding published content. Some may not allow you to use affiliate links or general links that lead to inappropriate websites. If you want to avoid being banned, you will need to follow all the terms. Don’t underestimate the importance of affiliate links, though. It’s never a bad time to use affiliate links and promote the products that you love. This is the easiest way to start earning money right away.
Promoting your website
Once your website has been setup, you will need to start promoting it and generating traffic. Some of the easiest ways of promoting your website are with forum signatures, submitting ads to classifieds, guest posts on other websites, commenting on relevant blogs with links to your website, etc. Once you start getting your website out there, you are going to begin generating traffic within a few days. It’s going to take time for this traffic to grow. It is important that you do not get demoralized and keep at it. As long as you can produce valuable, good content regularly on your website, your traffic will continue increasing and your website may start getting promoted through word of mouth as well.
Now that you know how to create a free website, it’s important for you to tweak and test your website and make improvements wherever possible. This may be the graphics or even the location of the affiliate links. You need to settle on a look for your website before you start promoting it. Making changes once you begin generating traffic will only drive potential traffic away. And once you start earning money, don’t be shy to invest some of it in getting your own domain and website. That should be the main goal when running a free website.
