Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
In your quest to make cash on the internet, content is king! Content is what brings readers to your site. Content is what keeps them there. Content is what makes them return. Content is what generates money.
In this post for beginners, I’m going to assume that you’ve followed my advice and installed the WordPress software. If not, just adapt it to whatever software you are using. I’m also going to assume that you’ve given the software the “look” that you want by choosing one of the available free templates.
Your first post to your new website should be a welcome post, in which you state the purpose of the site, and tell your readers what kind of material they can expect to find there.
Then, start on your second post. And your third. Write a couple of dozen in your first couple of days. The first few are easy. If you’re truly passionate about your topic, you will find that you have lots to say.
Your goal is to get a decent sized site up quickly. That way, when people find you, they won’t be disappointed by a site with only a couple of pages. I’d suggest that two dozen posts is a good start.
You do not have to write a book on every post. In fact, you shouldn’t. Your model should be USA Today, not the New York Times. Articles should be short and snappy. They should focus on a single, narrow topic. If it’s going to run more than five or six paragraphs, see if it shouldn’t be broken into two topics.
For many posts, you don’t have to write anything at all. Some of the most effective posts are those that offer your readers a link to another site. For example, if your site is about glass mushrooms, you might have a post like this:
Carol Wojeda has a site with several interesting photos of green glass mushrooms. LINK.
There are many examples of this sort of post on this site.
