We recently discussed the hectic, often dangerous pace of Black Friday shopping. If you avoided the crowds after Thanksgiving, you’re right on time for Cyber Monday. Many people now find the convenience of shopping online beats dealing with crowds at the stores.
When you shop online, the gift is immediately available and delivered to your destination of choice. You know exactly what you’re getting and merely have to surf the Internet to find it. This year, why not celebrate Cyber Monday by giving the gift of web hosting or a domain name?
Cyber Monday proves online businesses are a growing industry. With ecommerce at at an all-time high, more merchants are offering specials to lure the lucrative online shopping community. From teens at college to busy executives to homebound seniors, people are shopping online for everything they need.
Starting your own merchant website is a great way to get in on the cyber shopping boom. You can create your own online store, choose a catchy domain name and get web hosting for a simple website to promote your wares. Affiliate marketing is a popular way to offer goods or services without actually stocking any inventory. When you are an affiliate, you sell for another company and earn a commission when orders are placed through your website.
Consider how simple it is to get a website going to earn a side income or as a full-time career. These are the simple basics to get started:
choose a target market you want to sell goods or services to;
select products or services that appeal to your target market by searching and finding out about literally thousands of different affiliate opportunities;
pick and purchase a memorable domain name related to your target market or products so people remember your business;
get reliable web hosting and a simple design-it-yourself website template; and
market your new website to realize profits!
You can also treat the experienced webmasters you know to a year of green web hosting. Give a gift that contributes to a better environment and keeps on giving all year long.
When you give the gift of web hosting and domain registration to friends, family and co-workers (or yourself), think of all the possibilities you’re offering. From posting personal anecdotes to starting a lucrative online business, everyone will thank you long after the holidays when you give web hosting and domain names as gifts.
