You will begin to notice the more you search for ways to make money from home a lot of the information repeats itself. There is always one recurring theme. You need to have a website! This wasn't the case years ago but it is now and as the internet evolves and changes we have to adapt as well if we wish to make any kind of profits.
I Don't Know How To Build A Website
This is by far the most common statement I hear when I talk to someone about building a website and for good reason. It used to be so hard! Of course that's the first thing anyone will say! I said it too! But the good thing about the internet evovling is that technology evolves with it. Today now we don't need to know any coding, css, style sheets or any of it. Most of the wealthiest marketers in the world wouldn't have a clue how to start their businesses if it was 1999!
This is the best part! Now we all have a chance at taking a slice of the internet pie! Websites nowadays are fully based around templates and themes. Once you get your $4/month hosting and your $12/year domain name all you need to to is click your mouse a couple times - pick a theme or 'look' for your site and your business has begun! All for under $20! Still not sure? There are even ways you can have a website up in the next hour (after a video tutorial) absolutely free with SiteRubix.
The only thing you need to do next is start filling it out with whatever content you desire. You want to blog about knitting or sewing do it! You like playing guitar and teaching people how to play?

How Can I Make The 'Money'?
Of course! The important stuff! Once you get rolling with your 'business' and you have good quality content (learn more about content at create wealth from home) Search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo etc. are going to rank your pages accordingly.
When people search for their 'keyword' (whatever they type into Google) your blog may show up on the first page of the results. If it does show on the first page Google 'likes' your content because they believe it to have value to it's potential readers.
If somebody chooses to click on your blog to read your content this is known as traffic. The more posts or pages you write on your website the more chance you have of them ranking in Google and the more traffic you can drive to your website. It is this traffic that you can start converting into money. And for every blog or niche website online there are always ways to monetize them or 'make money'.
How To Make Money From Your Home Business
Once your blog is fairly established and you start receiving some traffic there are hundreds of ways you can start including things that can make you profit. You don't need your own product, you don't need certain skillsets, you don't need 'sell' anything if you don't want to. All you need is valuable content that gets you the traffic!
The absolute easiest way to start monetizing your website or blog is with the use of Google Adsense. There is absolutely NO selling involved so your blog can be literally about anything! How it works is once approved, Google will assign you a snippet of code unique to your account details . You don't need to remotely understand what the code means you just need to know where to put it on your site.
Once the code is installed where you want it (Google shows you via video training) you will see an ad block. I am sure you have seen them on probably ever website you've ever been to. Because of the code, the ads that show will automatically be relevant to whatever your page or post is about.
If people decide to click on these ads while visiting your blog Google will pay you a certain percent the profits they make on advertising costs. The margins of payout vary drastically but with enough traffic large paychecks can accumulate very quickly. And we all know a check from Google isn't going to bounce! The best part is there was no selling involved 🙂
That's why your website or 'business' could be about literally anything! It could be about crickets if you wanted. You can't sell crickets online but I guarantee people search information about crickets for their pet lizards or whatever. If they find your blog and click your ads you make money!
This is just one of the most common ways you can monetize your blog to start making money from home but believe me there are plenty others. I have a similar article that delves deeper into how to partner with companies like Amazon and eBay to get paydays from them as well. If your interested read it here how to make money blogging from home.
