How to Get a Web Presence

Updated on March 3, 2015

Sell Stuff Online

In today's economy it is not surprising that ever more people are wanting to start an online business. This is not a new trend as many have sold products this way for almost 2 decades with great success. Some claim to have become millionaires at it, and that's no exaggeration. There are various things to be sold, such as your own products or those of others through affiliate sites. Whatever your fancy there is some help here.

This lens covers different ways you can achieve this goal with easy, simple and straight forward advice. There are also videos and more detailed explanations if required. So get cracking and build your first ever site.

Do You Think Building Your Own Site(s) is a Good Idea? - Or would you prefer to use affiliate links only

A domain with your own site allows you the flexibility of adding more affiliate links and of specialising in certain products that might not otherwise be available. So what is your choice.

I prefer to build my own and have my own domain

Before You Start a Business

You will need an autoresponder

One of the most clever tools on the Internet is the autoresponder. That is a must for any marketer. The one I use is AWeber because it is renowned as the best and most reliable on the Internet. Sure, there are probably cheaper programs that promise more nut beware. Many only stay in business a short time and if you have your lists registered with them you risk losing all your contact. It simply is not worth the hassle.

Get with the best from the word go and you will not regret it. I have been with a few and for the ease of operation, reliability and performance this is the one that I recommend, along with most affiliate marketers that I know. Check it out here It is wise to get this set up and familiarise yourself with it before you engage sa selling web site. Your web form needs to go on your site so all visitors can sign up. That way you will be creating your list of customers to market to.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

DoYou Buy Things On The Internet? - Do you think you can sell things on the ineternet

From all the products one could sell for yourself or others, have you thought about what your niche product(s) might be

Do you think having a niche product is important?

What is a Niche Market?

It is an area where you think you can excel over your competition.

It usually relates to something you are interested in, you use yourself and can give it a great wrap, or you see a need that is not currently being met.

What is a Lens

It is a viewpoint, an opinion or a story about something you want to sell or to pass on some knowledge or ideas. It is anything you want except a blog.

On Squidoo we like to dress lenses up with nice pictures and interesting snippets of information unlike a blog which is a single page of story only. On a blog you add to the bottom and get comment back. Lenses have comment boxes but not in the same way. You can add to lenses by building more of them.

Do You Like Building Lenses? - Is it addictive for you?

Do you think lenses teach you about having a web presence

Put Adsense Ads on Site and Make Money - Google pays you for clicks from your site

Many are making good money from Google by advertising these ads. The downside is that people click over from you site to the one they have been induced to click over to. But if you don't mind that then get in on this trend.

Great Alternative to Google Adsense - Forget Adsense

It doesn't matter how careful you are the chances are that you will get banned from Adsense and any ads you have on your site are instantly removed. This has happened to me for no reason, and they will never tell you anyway, and to hundreds of others that I know in forums and elsewhere.

Don't play around with the devil. Try this on on for size and see how it fits.
