Earning money by running a website can be an exciting experience. However, monetising a website requires time, dedication and most importantly: traffic. Then… What requirements do I need to start making money with my website?
Entrepreneurship is like riding a bike. You can spend your life riding around, but the fun of riding a bike is the wind in your face. To achieve the moments of inertia, where we enjoy the journey, we must first pedal at full speed. Building a great small business website is the same.
In order not to spend your life walking around without taking your feet off the pedal you have to work hard and steadily for several months until you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Moments of inertia are necessary to project and plan the growth of your internet site.
The Brand: The soul of the project
An overwhelming percentage of ventures fail in the first year of life. And although the reasons are diverse and vary according to the country concerned, today I want to focus on one of the main ones that knows no borders.
What gives a project a solid base on which to build a business plan, corporate identity, team, website, etc.? The brand.
If your venture does not make people fall in love with you, you are in trouble. If your project does not have a message to transmit, it has an expiry date.
What crosses borders is the message: Think different, Impossible is nothing, Just do it.
If it doesn’t generate controversy, if nothing happens, then it lacks soul.
Analysis and research
In order to make money with a task it is essential to study the field. To know how web pages work, you not only have to visit lots and lots of them, but you have to make a selection of the best ones and analyse how they work. That way you will be able to understand what the business is about and learn from the market. It is also important to research who your competition might be and analyse them.
Organic learning hours
Organic learning is the one that happens naturally, without pressure, without guidelines. It is the one we seek out of curiosity, for pleasure. Organic learning is that which flows, which you access out of necessity, in the moment and which you apply immediately.
It is very important in the diet of any entrepeneur to have hours of organic learning on a weekly basis. The Internet moves very fast and if you are not constantly learning, your business is in serious danger of becoming obsolete.
Structural learning hours
Like any new world, you have to see what it is all about. As soon as you try to start making a living from a website, words like plugins, ratings, SEO, advertising stats, email marketing, etc. will appear. And if you are not willing to deal with all that alone. If you don’t want to waste a lot of time and money in the process, then I recommend you take a look at Mediafem.
