A lot of internet entrepreneurs who toe this line of making money online have been able to tide over their financial challenges with ease and quickly too.
For instance, if you know how to create a niche website or blog, you can build 4 to 5 web sites with the aim of making $200 a month from each of these small virtual real estate businesses. After three months of consistently making passive income online from a website, flip it and build another one in its place.
There are basic steps you have to follow to start creating niche websites profitably and I will briefly explain each of them below.
Step 1: Market and Keyword Research
The first step to build a niche website is for you to conduct market and keyword research. Selecting a niche market will mainly depend on your personal preference. One, you can choose a market based on your passion or knowledge. Two, you can select a niche market by “following the money” i.e. building a website based on the fact that you know other internet entrepreneurs are already making money from these areas of business.
After picking a market to create a niche website, your next task is to conduct keyword research. The essence of keyword research is to find profitable keyword phrases to target. You want to find long tail keyword phrases which you can target and easily rank for on the SERP (search engine result pages) after analyzing market competitiveness for each of the long tail keyword phrases.
Step 2: Market Analysis and Evaluation for Target Keywords
Remember that the idea is for you to know how to make $1000 a month from home creating niche websites. And you need free targeted traffic from search engines consistently to hit this mark especially if you are working on a shoestring budget. To do this effectively, simply analyze the top 10 Google results to know the level of market competition for each of the long tail keyword phrases.
Try as much as possible to avoid keywords that are overly competitive and dominated by authority websites. However, you must target “buying keywords” if you are monetizing your niche website with affiliate products but target “information-finding keywords” if you are building Google AdSense websites.
In order to analyze and evaluate keywords effectively and as quickly as possible, you may have to buy good keyword research tool for this purpose. But if you don’t have the budget for paid keyword tool, you can use free Firefox browser in conjunction with the free SEOQuake plug-in to achieve the same result manually.
Step 3: Buy a Domain Name and Web Hosting
Buying or registering a domain name and purchasing reliable web hosting are the easiest of the steps of creating a niche website. From your keyword research, select an exact match domain (EMD) and add a descriptive word or suffix to it to register a domain name. You can also buy expired domain name with backlinks and age to make it easy for your website to get indexed and ranking for low competition search terms.
You have to buy web hosting from a reliable web host so that you don’t start hopping from one web hosting company to another because of poor hosting services and constant downtime.
Step 4: Set Up Your Niche Website Blog
The fastest way now to build a niche website is to install WordPress blog on your domain. But you have to learn how to optimize your WordPress blog for on-page factors. You need a good WordPress theme and essential WordPress plug-ins to fully optimize your website. You can take advantage of free video tutorials on the internet on how to install WordPress blog on a domain name.
After installing and optimizing your blog, you can start writing SEO articles and publishing them on your blog. But you have to target only profitable long tail keyword phrases which you selected in Step 2 above. Thereafter, monetize your content with Google AdSense and/or affiliate products. Personally, I prefer affiliate products monetization method to Google AdSense because I want to build fewer web sites.
Step 5: Promote Your Niche Website and Build Backlinks to It
After you have published quality articles on your blog, it is about time you start promoting your niche website and building backlinks to it. You can do this in a number of ways including video marketing, content or article marketing, guest blogging, forum marketing, and so on.
At first glance, the above steps and tasks may seem daunting but constant practice will make it a cinch. This is how to make $1000 a month from home with ease and without getting your fingers burnt from get rich quick schemes that will hardly make you money. If you create a niche website, monetize it with affiliate products that pay $20 and above affiliate commissions and promote the blog consistently, you can make $100 a month from home from one website conservatively speaking.
You can then create 10 niche websites and make $1000 a month from home without breaking the bank. Go ahead to flip each of the niche websites at websites for sale marketplaces to earn lump sum profits. After all, you now have the knack to create a niche website that you can make money online from by simply repeating the above steps.
