However, the free service of Jimdo doesn’t provide you a professional platform to create a website because the domain that you can get as a free members of Jimdo will be under the subdomain of “jimdo.com”. If you want to have your own private domain, you should go for Jimdo pro subscription which will cost $90 per year.
Jimdo free service is also not good for getting good traffic because its SEO plugins will be only activated for the landing page of your website and you won’t get any search engine rankings for rest of your page. Where as Jimdo Pro provided a very good platform in a cheapest cost. You will get your own private domain, free custom emails on your domain name, full SEO plugins to optimize your each page for search engine rankings and definitely a very easy platform to create a website with all necessary plugins that you generally need to create a professional money making website.

Jimdo Business plan is only necessary for those who are getting lots of traffic, means already making too much money from their website. Otherwise Jimdo Pro subscription already enough to create a professional website.
The most needed feature of Jimdo business can be the URL redirect from the deleted or 404 error pages to the active pages, for making some pages nofollow and so on. Now it may sounds too much technical for you. Well, that’s why we said you need Jimdo Business only when you become too much professional, means by the time when you are already making good amount of income from your website.

At last – How to make money from a website?
Sorry for making this post too long before coming into the main topic of this post. But, we feel we need to explain about some good platforms to create a website first of all before we explain the ways of making money with a website.
Now here is the process and ways of making money with a website:-
Process to create a money making website:-
Choose a niche:-
Before you decide to make a website, first of all, you need to choose a niche. Niche means your own subject of interest in which you have some knowledge and ideas, so choose the topic in which you have some ideas to write some contents.
Many people misunderstand the concept of choosing the niche. Instead of going to their own subject of interest, they start to search what topic other successful blogger have chosen and try to copy that thinking they can also make their website same popular and make same money like those top blogger are making.
However, in this business, copying other concept is worthless. If you choose some topic thinking that will have many visitors and lots of money for you, you will end up giving up this business. Because, if you choose the niche in which you don’t have idea, just because other are making money from that niche, then definitely you are not going to make any good progress because you will not have enough idea what kind of content/article you should write regarding that topic and without adding content day by day, you can’t succeed in this process. So, don’t go after choosing popular niche.
Instead choose the real niche, we said real niche because niche is the subject of your own interest, so real niche means your real subject of interest in which you have some knowledge and ideas to write some contents/articles on your own.
Don’t worry, every niche is profitable. Well, we will tell you how later in this post.
The keyword research is the process of finding out what people are searching on the search pages like Google, Yahoo, Bing and so on and how many people are searching that keyword term and how many competition already have for that keyword. Competition means the amount of content/article that already there written by other websites in same topic. If you find out there are lots of competition, you should choose other keyword to target in your content, not the one with high competition. Because to make your content/article rank in first page in search pages, you should choose the keyword which have less competition.
Well now it sounds difficult for you? Thinking how to do keyword research? Well, don’t worry on that part because you can find in detail how to do the keywords reserach by clicking the following links:-
What is Keyword Research? How to do Keyword Research?
Which one is the best Keyword Research Tool and how to do the Keyword Reserach using that tool.
However, above two links are only if you want to do it on your own. But if you want to follow the step by step training to learn about keyword research, then once again it’s better you join Wealthy Affiliate.
Actually this process you need to implement side by side with all the process. First of all you need to install SEO plugins while setting up your website first time. After that you need to put the meta head tag and meta description whenever you write each content. However, meta description is not so much important these days. But, meta heading must be put in the area provided by SEO plugins.
The meta heading will be the topic of your each content. So you need to copy-paste your content heading to meta head tag. And your topic also need to have the keywords that you have find out doing the Keyword Research.
According to the different platforms, you will find the SEO meta head and meta description settings. Each website building platform will clearly provide you the direction to find out the SEO settings. However, it is more easy if you join Wealthy Affiliate because Wealthy Affiliate provides the step by step training to do the SEO settings in a very professional and easy matter.
Content is a key to drive a traffic to your website. Without a quality content, don’t expect any good results. When we say quality content, many people confuse about writing contents in artistic way. Well, we are not saying that. You no need to writer to write a content. You can write the content about the topic in which you have good knowledge so that you can easily write what you know about that thing. It’s like sharing your ideas, your views regarding something with your friends through your social media accounts. You only need to write little long. That’s all. So, don’t confuse to be a writer. You no need to be a writer.
Warning! While writing the content, never ever copy any contents from any website. Yes, you can read the content in other websites and take ideas but only ideas, then write the contents on your website on your own. You will not get any good ranking in search pages by writing a duplicate content. That’s why you should choose a niche in which you have good knowledge. So, make the website only in that subject in which you have some knowledge and ideas.
Don’t think which niche is profitable, think in which niche you have good enough knowledge to write some contents on your own. Later on when you out of ideas, then you can read the contents from other websites to take ideas but once again you need to write on your own.
Yes, more contents you write by targeting more new keywords, you can grab more traffic from search pages. So, never stop your content writing process. Day by day keep on building new contents by targeting new keywords relevant to your niche.
Ways of Making Money With a Website
Once you get the good number of traffic to your website, you can start to make money from your website which you can do in following ways:-
Searching Affiliate products related to your website content and selling that by providing the affiliate link of those products through your content. When people click such affiliate link and purchase something, you will earn the commission which will be provided from the affiliate programs. Lots of companies have affiliate program. So, there is high possibility to find out the affiliate products which is relevant to your content.
The top companies providing affiliate programs are Amazon.com, JVZoo, ClickBank, Booking.com, eBay Partner Network, Shareasale, GiddyUp, and so on. You can apply for free with lots of these kinds of affiliate programs and promote their products by providing the affiliate link given by those companies through your website content. When some people click that affiliate link and purchase something, you will make some commission of that product value. The commission value will be different according to the different companies.
Now maybe you are thinking why people will purchase through your affiliate link instead of directly purchasing from those companies. Well, it’s because first of all people will search in search pages like Google about the reviews of the products before they purchase and when they find out your review on the first page they will click that and read the content of your website. If they believe what you have written about those products, lots of them will definitely purchase the products from your recommendation. It happens because only those people landed in your website content who are searching for the product which you are promoting. So, those people already already interested on that product and trying to find out either they should purchase that product or not. So, your positive review on that product will easily convince them to purchase the product through your affiliate link.
However, never ever do any false review. If you think some products are too much bad, better not promote them. If you think some products have both pros and cons, it’s better you mention that clearly so that it will be more easy for your website visitors to decide themselves.
Remember, honesty wins the race here. If you sell bad products saying that is good, you may be succeed to sell one time but next time those people will not purchase anything from your recommendation. However, if you provide honest review, you will start to gain the trust of people and they will again come directly to your website as well as they will recommend your website to your friends and families which will results increase in your social traffic as well as your search engine traffic. So, always provide honest review about the products that you want to sell.
Creating your own digital products:-
Well, it is not difficult to create your own digital product and sell them online. Even you can just make the training in a pdf format by writing in text format in Microsoft Word document and saving that to the pdf format. That training material can be of anything, like about cooking something, or ways of cleaning, or tips to lose weight or tips for diet plan and so on. You can make such document on anything in which you have idea. It’s better you make such training material or any such kind of pdf document in a text format with pictures and then upload those to sell in the sites like ClickBank, JVZoo and so on and set up the price to download your material and also provide the description what your material offers. After that you can grab the link of your upload file and paste the in your relevant website content. When people click that link and purchase your digital product, you will earn money which you can cash-out from the respective companies like ClickBank, JVZoo and so one wherever you upload your content.
Actually, there are multiple ways to create a digital products, not only training materials such as you can create a video of showing some ideas or tricks, you can provide tips to make money which you have learned, you can provide the better ways to be successful in career and so on. Even you can write eBook, something interesting and sell that if you are a good writer. So, you can make any kind of digital products and sell that easily from your own website.
Selling your own products if you have any:-
If you are a shop owner or if you produce some handicraft products or you are good at making some products, you can easily sell that through your website. You just need to write the content relevant to your products and make people aware of your product. Then you can recommend people to purchase those product from your content.
You can sell your own products directly by providing the link from your content website to your product based website. If you don’t have your own e-commerce website for your products, then you can list your products in third parties website like Amazon.com and grab the link of those product’s page and paste it to your website content from where people will click the link and purchase your products from the website like Amazon.com and you will earn the money equivalent to your product value. However, the website like Amazon.com will cut little fees for doing that, but it’s very easy and safe way to sell your products.
Selling the services or trainings:-
If you provide some services or trainings, you can also mention about that by creating relevant content within your website. When the content is relevant to your training or services, people who landed to that content will be those who are searching about such services and training within search pages like Google, Bing, Yahoo and so on. So, those people are your potential customer. If you provide your contact details to get your service or training, some of those people who have landed in your website content will contact you as per your guidance to get training from you or to get any kind of services from you.
However, you better target specific place around you for selling such training or services which you can do by targeting your website visitors only to certain place. There is a setting in Google Search Console about that. If you want to learn about these settings, it’s once again better to join Wealthy Affiliate as you can learn about these stuff very easily from there.
What if your content is not suitable to sell anything or if you simply don’t want to sell anything. In that case, can you still make money from your website?
Placing advertisements within your website:-
If you don’t want to sell anything or promote anything from your website, or if your website niche is not suitable to promote or sell anything, then also there is a very good and easy way of making money with your website and that is advertisements.
Now maybe you are thinking where and how you can find the advertisements to place in your website. Well, it is very easy and you no need to do anything for it. There are the big companies like Google AdSense, Media.net and so on where you can apply to place the advertisement to your website. You sign up and apply to those services for free of cost. However, you must be getting traffic to your website before you apply to these services. If your website is not getting any traffic, they will not approve your website to place the advertisements. So, first of all, drive traffic to your website and once you start to get traffic, then only apply with these services.
However, if your website niche contains the probihited contents, you may not get approval from big advertisement networks like Google AdSense, Ezoic, Monumetric, etc., but in this case, you can apply with other advertisement networks. If you search in Google, you can find the advertisement networks for any kind of contents providing by various companies. You can apply free of cost in most of them.
When people land in your website, read your content, you will earn some small money on per view basis given by these advertisement networks for displaying their ads on your website. If some visitors click those ads, then you will make more money because you can earn good income on per click basis. Since these companies provided relevant ads, there is maximum chance to get clicks from your visitors.
Don’t worry about setting up those ads in your website. That is very easy which you can do in few minutes. Once you apply with those companies, they will provide you the detailed tutorial to place the advertisements on your website. So, you don’t have to be worried on that part.
Offering guest post/content:-
You can also offer a guest post and get paid for it. But remember, this can create issues of duplicate content. So, we don’t recommend it if SEO is the main source of your traffic.
