    Build your own web site, it is easy

    Doing online marketing without your own web site is a waste of time. If you do it without your own web site you are just building somebody else's brand for him.

    Building your own web site is not as difficult as you think

    I created a step by step video tutorial which show you exactly how to do this.

    I take you from where you register your own domain to the point where you can receive payments, add a newsletter and be able to place banner ads on your web site.

    It is so easy even a 50 year old can do it.

    Question Hi there Piet

    So you did your website by yourself? Who does the hosting and how much monthly? All the tweaking and other garble? who does that?

    Web site

    The hosting is done by gridhost, they charge R8.95 per month for hosting and R100 per year for domain registration and renewal. They then give you 50mb of space which is enough for entry level web site and 10 mail boxes.

    The setup and tweaking are all done by yourself. The video shows exactly how to set it up, how to add plugins for good SEO, etc.

    The best options you have in my opinion is to use CMS like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal with mod rewrite switched on together with hosting on a Linux box off course. I also recommend that you join Rand Fishkin's SEOMoz and perhaps even purchase SEOBook by Aaron Wall to get your SEO up to scratch. Just being search friendly is pointless if you do not apply SEO techniques as the author are in control of most of the on-page SEO as well as the Off-page factors.

    Just as a side note, building a website will not even remotely make you money online, nor would ranking well. You need to know how to squeeze and convert to make money online. Getting traffic is simply a start of any internet business.

    The same as New Years resolutions. Nothing, unless you really put some effort into it.

    web site

    As Tony said, once the site is finished the hard work start. Not only do you have to promote it but you also have to get quality content on your site.
    Content do not always have to be business orientated, it is better to write about a topic you have a passion for. Look at Butch's site http://www.storiesandissues.co.za/ . His making his money from writing short stories and poems. He is retired and this is what he love doing.

    @Tony - Those google link units which you have on your site nether work for me. Their conversion rate is very poor. In the body of the site I suggest you rather use a normal ad unit and them link units is good to put at the end of a page so that it looks like more links on your site.
