When you want to make money by promoting an affiliate program through your articles, you’re going too need one thing – a user friendly, attractive website to place them on. You can do this in one of two ways – you can build your own site or you can hire someone to do it for you.

Unless you already know a lot about web design, it can be hard to get started building your own site. You’ll have to educate yourself on the fundamentals, which can take a while. You could just throw together a site right away, but this will likely result in a poorly designed website which looks thrown together. For both visitors and search engines, your site needs to be easy to navigate; which can be difficult if you are a beginner in web design.

Start Slow and Make Big Money With Articles

It can be easy to make money with articles. If you’re a quick study, you can learn everything you need to know in short order without needing professional instruction. This something that everyone looking into getting into niche website internet marketing needs to know.

If you’re new to this, then you should ease into things; by plunging in before you really know what you’re doing, then you can easily lose money and have nothing to show for your work. Before you even get started building your site, here are some things you should know how to do.

Write your own compelling articles or hire someone to write them for you

Optimize your website for search engines

Find a reliable web hosting company

Pick a catchy URL

Create a small site which is easy to navigate, have one created for you, or pay to use a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) website builder.

It can be tough to make a Do-It-Yourself website, but if you manage to do it, you may learn enough to write some good articles about it and start your own new DIY niche site.

Instead of building this site myself I hired Ben Cope and it was painless and simple to have him install WordPress, create the graphics and make this site look very good and it was very affordable.
