So you wonder how to create a website for free and make money from it? You have come to the right place. In this step-by-step tutorial I will show you how to build your website for free.

How To Create A Website For Free And Make Money

Many people get scared when they hear the words ”building a website”. They think that you need to know how to code and have special technical skills. This is far away from the truth.

You don’t need to be technical or hire a web designer. ANYONE can build a website. It’s easier than you can imagine and in this post I will show you exactly how.

Most free websites are too slow and struggle to get any traffic. The method that I am about to show you is different. After following the steps in this article, you will have a high-quality and high-speed website that attracts massive traffic and turns it into revenue. Your website will be up and running within minutes (even if you are a complete beginner).

Creating your own website for free has never been easier and this guide shows you the exact steps. Let’s begin!

How To Create A Website For Free And Make Money In 4 Easy Steps

So many people dread to take the first step because they think that creating a website is something super complicated. That was true back in the days, but today thanks to website builders like SiteRubix, it’s super-easy.

With the 4 step method that I am about to show you, you will have your own WordPress website in just a few clicks. Your website will be up and running, ready for people to visit and earn revenue.

You are going to build your website using a site builder called SiteRubix. Click here and check for domain availability or use the search bar below. Once you have found a domain name, click on ”Build My Free Website”. It will ask you to create an account. Don’t worry, it is completely free and they will even provide you with training.

Do that now and when you are done, come back and continue following the steps below.

Step 1

Once you have chosen your domain and created your free account, you will be taken to a page that looks like this. The only difference for you is that only the free domain option will be available. This is because you are using a starter account.

Step 2

Simply click on ”Free Domain” and follow the instructions. It will ask you to enter your desired domain name. Here is an example:

Step 3

Once you are done with that, the next step is to choose a theme for your website. As a starter member, you are most likely to have only one theme available (GeneratePress, which is the one that I use), but don’t worry because you can always change it later.

Remember that the design of your site is not the most important thing. What matters the most is the content you put on that website, so don’t worry too much in the beginning what your website looks like. Focus on content creation.

Step 4

Click on the theme you want and then click on the “Build my website” button that appears.

And that’s it. Congratulations! You have just created your own website!

How To Customize Your Website

The good news is that the website you just created is a WordPress website, which is highly customisable. You can design it and make it look just the way you want to.

What’s even better is that there are tons of free training online to help you to get your website looking exactly how you want it. Below is a list of free training about the most essential things you need to do when you first create your website.

  1. Setting Up Your Website
  2. Creating Content on Your Website
  3. Adding Custom Menus To Your Website
  4. Changing Themes (optional)

Again, I want to emphasize that it is not of biggest importance what your website looks like. Don’t try to make it perfect. The design of your website won’t make you money. Keep it simple and easy to use.

Now let’s discuss the part that you have probably most been waiting for, which is making money.

How To Earn Money From Your Website

There are many ways to monetize a website, but the two primary ones are Display Advertising and Affiliate Marketing. You can use both, but more than 80% of your income will come from affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is an amazing monetization method that has the potential to earn a full-time income.

You can also sell your own product if you have one, but this will be more complicated since it requires integrating payment processing & order handling, etc.

Don’t try to make things hard for you. Many people think that making money online is a complicated process when it reality it is very simple if you follow the right training.

In my experience, affiliate marketing is so far the best way to make money from your website.

But before you can start making money you need visitors. Without people coming to your website, no matter how great content is, you will have a hard time making money.


How Do You Get Visitors?

Again, there are a lot of ways to drive traffic (visitors) to your website, but the easiest and most sustainable one is through organic search. This is the so called SEO or Search Engine Optimization. It allows you to leverage search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo to get unlimited visitors to your website for FREE.

Let me explain how it works.

When you create content, Google will discover it and list it in the search results as an option for people to click on when they search for something related to it.

Let’s take ”gardening” as an example. You search in Google for ”essential gardening tools” and this is what comes up:

When people search for that term and click on the article, they will land on someone’s website. This is the way you get traffic from Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Someone searches for something on Google and lands on your website if it is relevant to the search term.

Now when you have that traffic (visitors) coming to your website, you can start making money. The best way to do that is through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is basically the process of promoting someone else’s product and earning commissions each time someone buys.

How can you incorporate affiliate marketing to your website?

First you need to sign up for an affiliate program. Companies, such as Amazon, have affiliate programs that you can join for free. Amazon’s affiliate program is called Amazon Associates and it allows you to promote every product that is available on Amazon.

You will get links that are connected to your account and every time someone purchases the product thorough your link, you will earn a commission.

That is exactly the way the owner of the gardening website, from the example above, makes money. Take a look:

Each of those links lead to Amazon and every time someone purchases the product through those links, the owner of the website earns a commission.

This is passive income. It probably took the owner a couple of hours to write that post and it continues to make money for years to come.

Display advertising works in a similar way as affiliate marketing. Google will place ads on your website and each time someone click on those ads, you will make money. It is important to mention that you won’t make a lot of money from ads.

If you decide to monetize your website with both affiliate marketing and ads, keep in mind that more than 90% of your income will come from affiliate marketing. So that’s what you need to focus on. Nothing is stopping you from using both, but just keep in mind that affiliate marketing has MUCH greater potential to earn you a full-time income.

Only the sky is the limit of how much you can earn with affiliate marketing. However, it won’t come easy and it will certainly not happen overnight. Affiliate marketing requires dedication, time, energy and hard work.

Now that I have clarified that, you are probably wondering ”How can I get started with affiliate marketing?”
