If I had a dollar every measure
someone said they wanted to generate a internet site
, but didnt understand
where to start
, I would be well, rich. The problem doesnt seem to be the actual creation of the page
, but more the what should it be about aspect. Please note that, I am not in any way referring to e-commerce sites, corporate sites or any commercial sites, but purely about interest and general sites.
The problem lies in the fact that the essence of site creation has moved radically from where it started as an understanding and entertainment medium, it has changed to almost the opposite and in some cases even to complete rubbish.
So, before you even think of getting your little spot on the web, what should you be sure of, understand
and be aware of. What are the things that will generate my site worthwhile and an asset to the web? What should I create to be able to cash in and earn some revenue for my days and months of hard work? Well, I would like to propose some basic ideas.
Firstly, I firmly believe that any author (internet page
creator) should concentrate on things they know about or at least very familiar with. There would be definately
no point for me to create a page
on nuclear fusion (in fact starting would be a problem). You have to beginning with something that you can inform and/or entertain with, if you want your visitors to return at some stage. Use this wonderful platform to share your views and express yourself to the world. Not many other mediums allow this to such a massive extent. Share yourself!
The next important aspect, if you do want your web page
to really draw some attention on a ongoing basis, would be to ensure that the content on your site is as timeless as possible. I recently helped my mom create a site (http://www.mom2me.com) to host her recipes and it is an excellent example of a site that is timeless. Recipes do not get old. The data
on your web page
, unless you want to constantly update it, should not get old either and a grand idea would be to choose a topic for your web site, where the information never ages. Jokes, photos, dazzling articles etc. are all workable examples of non-ageing content. Blogs are sizeably successful
and quick uploading but still the material needs to be timeless as far as possible.
Try to be original. Easier said than done, I know, but try to not to beginning yet another site featuring the identical
old jokes. Not only will you never be able to ever monetize your web site (earn revenue from it), but it would just be a copy of another persons expression. Something as simple as making a page
on a smaller section of an existing page
could be a great idea. What about a site dedicated to jokes about plumbers (if you really have to do a joke page
). Be original not only in what you create, but what you represent as well.
Start small. I do not want to be the bearer of bad news, but you are not going to initial
a Google in the next year. Try to ensure that whatever you base your web site on, is within your financial ambit and measure
sphere. You do not want to overextend yourself and leave the page
halfway complete, by the time you realize that you have lost interest. It is always easier to add to a completed site and see it grow even bigger. Set realistic goals and try to achieve them within a explicit
period. Planning is critical and if you do it correctly you will never have to have those horrible under construction pages on your web page
Lastly, and most definately
most importantly of all, think about how you are going to attract visitors, hopefully repeatedly, to ensure that you might
earn revenue from your hard work. If you are thinking about building
make use of
of Affiliate Programs or programs like Googles Adsense, always remember that they will require visitors. Visitors in return require a reason to visit in the first place and secondly to come back again and again. The only way you are going to ensure any form of revenue is by creating sure your site is attractive, informative and generally a great place to visit.
In a perfect world, all sites would be as I described above, but sadly that is not the case. The sizeably effective news is that due to the fact that more than 50% of sites are not that grand, you are already halfway there, without even starting. Best of luck and I look forward to visiting your workable page
