Let’s say you love to design and upload websites just for the fun of it. But don’t you know that there are ways that you could milk your computer and your websites and earn money for free? Here’s how.

Use Your Website as a Store

E-commerce and the Internet has made it possible to buy and sell items using only your computer, and from the comfort of your home. You don’t need to be as flashy as Amazon or as complicated as eBay. All you need are a few pages that will showcase your products to your website’s visitors.

You would need to connect to the secure transaction portals for the different credit card companies if you plan to offer payment through credit cards. Most people prefer to transact in the Web through PayPal, so you’d also need to open up an account for that too.

Sign up For Affiliate Programs

Another way to earn money from your website is by signing up for affiliate programs. There are virtually thousands of these programs that you could join in. The concept of these programs is to enlist your help as website owner to earn money by allowing you to post links and ads to their sites, and pay you back in return. These payments are in the form of commissions, which you earn by referring visitors of your websites to their store.

These programs are good if the website you are using is centered on a certain niche, and attracts specific customers. When you sign up for these programs, make sure that the program is related to the topic and market which your website is centered on. This makes sure that the visitors who are interested in your website are also interested in the affiliate program’s products, increasing your chances of earning commissions.

Market and Optimize Your Website

You would not be able to see returns if your website does not appear in high ranks among search engine results, whatever the form of money-making you engage in for your website may be. You need to conduct marketing for your website, and optimize it.

Website optimization involves structuring and streamlining your content to reflect keyword and keyword theme density. Keyword density means you have to mention a certain keyword in one page a specific number of times – sometimes it is 2% of the total number of words in the page. The page and the keyword should also correspond to a theme. Marketing, on the other hand, can be done by joining social networking sites and posting relevant content in forums.
