How I built a Site In Just 8 Hours That Makes Between $100 to $150 a Week - Articles Surfing

Actually, for a while this site was making more then $350 a week. On top of the 8 hours it took me to set up, I only spend about 10 or so minutes a week on maintenance. *

Ok, so here's what I did: firstly, I found a great affiliate program that I wanted to promote. In this case it was the satellite TV affiliate program that I mention on my page: http://www.profitpuppy.com/top-affiliates.htm. This program pays $50 per sale which is reasonably attractive...

After joining the program; I hired a university student from a local university to design the website for me. I simply put an ad in the local university job search, and got about 15 responses from students who know how to design websites. I got them to email me an example of a website that they had designed, and then I got them to start designing the satellite TV website for free (as a test to see if they had good website design skills, because I certainly don't!)

I picked the guy who designed the best test site and hired him for four hours at a cost of $40 US to design the site. He designed this site for me: http://www.dishnetwork-free.com.

It's not particularly fancy but does the job. Note: although there is nothing special about this site copying it isn*t a good idea. This site, like most others, is subject to copyright. You are welcome to design a similar site, just don*t copy any of the wording or layout - you can probably do something much better anyway!

I then registered the domain name (I often use http://www.mydomainfriend.com to search for good domain names) and put the site up with my web host. You can see a list of good hosts at: http://www.profitpuppy.com/hosting.htm.

The last (and most important step) involved making a list of keywords that people might search for when looking to buy a satellite TV system. To make this list I used Wordtracker - you can find out more about this at:


Then I logged onto my Google Adwords account and put in a bid for these keywords at 5 cents each. Google Adwords is a pay per click search advertising service. If you do not understand how pay per click advertising works, then have a look at this page: http://www.profitpuppy.com/pay-per-click.htm

In this instance, I was generating about 800 clicks each week from the Adwords at a total cost of $40 resulting in at least 8 sales each week of satellite TV systems. This site is now generating less traffic and lower revenues (probably because I have told so many people how to do it!), however, the sales are still ticking over.

This strategy is probably the quickest and easiest way to make money on the web.

You simply sign up for a good affiliate program and promote it using Google Adwords. In this case I actually built a one page site - the main reason was that you can*t advertise on Google if the site you are promoting uses pop-ups. Because the site I was advertising did have a pop-up, I had to build my own onepage site which would then in turn advertise the other site.

It is a very quick and easy way to make money on Google, and it is a great way to get started because you can get it going quite quickly. However, you have to remember that it is becoming very difficult to find cheap clicks on Google Adwords.

To advertise a satellite TV related offer you would now be looking at paying $1a click to promote the offer. However, it is still possible to find some clicksat only 5 cents if you look hard enough.

This is a great way to make money on the net with little effort. I would recommend that you start out using this method, but don*t rely only on this method. You need to start looking at other techniques as well such as getting your own product or getting free listings with search engines.
