Earn Income with a Website: 

1.  Affiliate Marketing

When I first gave my family and friends the address to FrugalMom.net the first question almost everyone asked was, "Do you make money with it?"  My reply was YES!  I then asked them if they knew how, but no one knew how I made money.  The way that I earn money with my website is called Affiliate Marketing.   

My goal in designing my website was simple:  I wanted a site that would do three things:

  • Help moms learn ways to save money,
  • Teach moms ways and ideas to earn money from home, and
  • Earn money for my family.

Affiliate Marketing is a wonderful way to help people by giving them the products they need on your website.  The ways it works is quite simple:  you put up special links on your website from a merchant for a particular product.  Then when a visitor comes to your website and clicks through your link, visits the merchants site and makes a purchase, you earn a commission. What I like best about affiliate marketing is the start up cost is very, very low.

Site Build It

Maybe you'd like to try a website, but you don't know exactly how.  I recommend a great program called Site Build It! 

Site Build It! is focused on building web businesses not just Web sites. SBI! is an all-in-one site building and marketing system with an easy to follow step-by-step guide. Everything you need is included in the program which is great for busy moms! No more trying to cobble things together to make your web site work.

You will learn how to select a profitable niche based on something you know, love and/or are knowledgeable about. You'll also learn how to earn money from your site much like I do with affiliate marketing. Anyone can do it - you don't have to have any special computer experience or html knowledge.

It is highly recommended by Frugal Mom!


Additional Information on Affiliate Marketing:

If you have been searching for a stay at home business, you are aware of the many scams that are out there.  I assure you, affiliate marketing is not one of them.  My FrugalMom.net website is a real life example of how I have made money from home. I never like to tell people how much I make with my websites that I have built, but I will say I have easily replaced my salary as a teacher.   If you like to chat with me about it, please visit our message board; I'd love to help you in any way that I can.

2.  Sell your own Product

Another way that I have found to earn money with a website is to sell a product.  With affiliate marketing you do not have the investment of carrying products in your home.  However, if you are going to buy wholesale and resell to your website visitors, you will need to invest in, and stock products. The benefit to this route is, you make more money per sale. 

I used my membership at Worldwide Brands to find a product that I wanted to sell.  We are homeschoolers so I decided upon homeschool products.  If you are wondering how to find which product to sell, you will need to find a wholesaler.  Then you will next decide if you want to dropship the product, or if you will stock the product in your home.  To find out more about dropshipping and finding legitimate wholesalers, do yourself a favor and visit Worldwide Brands.  They have great tools for helping you get started and they are a legitimate company and the help I have received from them is amazing.
