Internet has grown to a level where impossible things are becoming possible.
For example: 20 years back, who would believe that in the future we will be able to book our airline tickets to some country via just few clicks of a mouse?
What about video Chat?
What about Google Earth?
Just like that: the internet has made it possible for us to earn money online via building informative websites/blogs.
Step One: Choosing The Niche/Topic For Your Website/Blog
What kind of website should you build?
Everyone has some hobby/hobbies: in most cases, these simple hobbies lead us to gain experience in certain fields. They help us to gain knowledge about certain things.
For example: I have few friends who love cars. They talk about different cars all the time. If a car is coming towards us
my friends will tell us which car it is and they even tell us the model of the car.
Now: if I ask my friends to write some informative content about different cars, then it will be easy work for them right?
Also, the content that they will write will be useful and informative as they know lot of stuff about different cars. Like: advantages and disadvantages of buying a ABC car.
I suggest that you do not search for things like: High Paying Keywords or High Paying Niches.
You should make a website on a niche about which you can write lot of useful, fresh, unique, meaningful, helpful, correct and informative content.
I personally have worked at freelance sites for few years and I do know lot of information about these sites. So that is why, I has chosen to build websites/blogs that are related to freelance sites.
I also love to play PC Games, so I do write about them in my blog.
So, if you want to make money online via building websites/blogs, then the first step is to choose the Niche/Topic of your website.
And like I said, the Niche needs to be the one about which you can write good content.
Never choose a niche about which you have no knowledge.
One way of choosing a Niche about which you have no knowledge: is to first learn everything about that niche yourself. Do all the research and learn everything about the niche. This may take days/weeks or even months.
Choosing the correct niche is the most important step in building a website.
Step Two: Free Or Paid Site?
Usually I tell people to not invest any money from their pocket for any online money making opportunity. This is to make sure that no one gets scammed.
But there are few opportunities where it is perfectly fine to invest your money.
If you want to start stock market trading business, then you will need to deposit some money in some well established Company/Bank. Such investment is scam free.
Just like that, you can invest some money to get your own site and your own domain.
You will have to decide if you want to go with a free website or you want your own domain which off course will cost
