Can I Make Money With Weebly

by 36 comments
I basically have no money to invest so I thought I might set up a free Weebly site about a subject I'm very passionate about.

What's the best way to monetize a Weebly site?

I already have some affiliate products related to my subject but are there other good ways to make more money? I've heard of AdSense but never tried it.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Any particular reason why you have decided on Weebly?

    Squidoo/Hubpages/Blogger are easier to start with in my opinion. For Hubpages and Blogger you will need your own Adsense account but with Squidoo you can get started without any accounts of your own at all (except PayPal).

    I have never made or opened an account with Weebly but I have made money with Blogger, which is also owned by Google.

    Yes - you can.

    You can earn via affiliate commissions.

    the most important factor is traffic. you need to generate traffic to your url to make money.

    good luck!

    I have had accounts with both Squidoo and Hubpages for 5 years and make good money from both every month. Of course the way to go in the long run is to own your own sites and I do that as well but the OP said he needs to start for free. I got a ton of first page rankings with Hubpages and Squidoo without any link building whatsoever which hasn't been the case with my own sites.

    Can't really comment on Weebly as I have never really used it.

    i don't know much about weebly, if i needed a free site to text a market.
    i do use blogger.com or Squidoo. i'm familiar with these two. and they are working for me.

    Making money? you can add your adsense or affiliate products on blogger. while amazon products on Squidoo.

    Weebly is very good to build sales pages with! I have used Weebly for this over one year now. It's easy and fast, but I'm not using Weebly as an host or FTP. I use to download the files and upload them to HostGator. Do you have an Pro account? I will recomend you to purchase the Pro package because you will get much value for it!

    I have read the posts and want to thank you for the question and all the Warriors for their input. From experience, I would be sure the site I chose was ownable. You will have to invest in your Business. There are no Free rides here worth taking.

    Spend some time here with the Warriors. They have great wisdom, have had experiences they will share so we may not make the same mistakes, and it is a good forum to bounce your questions and thoughts off of.

    Wish you the Best.

    Hey "Rob-T":

    Can you make money with weebly? Yes, b/c I have done it promoting an affiliate product. Did it happen overnight? Not for me. My guess, it took about 2 months to get my first sale.

    Writing something you are passionate about is an EXCELLENT way to start, or even do forever. (That weebly site I talked about above was not something I was passionate about so my landing page was probably poor). It is MUCH easier b/c it comes from the heart and experience. You know the terminology used. You know what turns your niche on AND OFF. All are important to connect with your audience.

    I don't know your niche but basically talk about the problem that made you buy your product. And how your product solved that problem.

    That is a GREAT landing page.

    If you're going to use Weebly, here are some simple SEO tips that should help with your rankings. How high? It depends on your competition and how much work you put into it. But, for starters, here's what you can do:

    *When you create your sites URL, you will have to choose a subdomain name. Choose YourKeyword.weebly.com For example, I just put up a test site targeting taylor made burner 2.0 and here is the Weebly URL I chose:
    TaylorMadeBurner2.0.weebly.com

    Taylor Made Burner 2.0 - Home

    *Bold, underline and italicize your keyword about 1 - 2 times throughout the article.

    *Use your keyword about 2-5 times for every 100 words (keyword density)

    *For each page, link to another page on your site with your keyword in the anchor text.

    *Go to the "Settings" Tab and under "General Settings", put your keyword in the Site Title field. Go to the ".....SEO" section and use your keyword about 1-2 times.

    Write about 5- 10 keyword optimized articles and put them on your weebly site. Social bookmark and Pingler.com each page when completed. This is for some back links but more so that they get indexed in Google.

    When they are all indexed, submit the same articles to ezinearticles, goarticles, articlesbase, and a couple others of your choice for more backlinks (and a little traffic if you're lucky). Do some blog commenting, relevant forum posting, guest blogging, and whatever backlinking strategy you want to do. The more diverse, the better.

    If you are new this may sound like a lot and totally foreign. But, there is the learning curve, like anything else, if you want to learn how to rank a site.

    I mentioned this before but I'll say it again and hope you and others will find it helpful. The best would be to find someone who has a large following of your target audience, i.e. a site getting lots of traffic or a list owner, and offer to write for them in exchange for a link back to your site. The hardest part is having them to work with you.

    Either way, both approaches require work since you don't have money to pay someone to do it all for you, or better yet, find a site that's already making money and negotiate a "good" deal. But, that's another topic.

    Hope you got something out of this. Good luck and remember, you can NEVER FAIL if you don't quit!







    Wait until they get indexed. with your keyword as the anchor text in the article (in the resource box). Submit them

    If you have no money to start try free blogs like Wordpress or Blogger. Change the theme to maximize adsense earnings and add amazon products. Then you can purchase some cheap Backlinks as you get some cash. That is the best way that I have found to earn money with free blogs.

    I would suggest getting your own host and domain.

    I wish I had bit the bullet before and actually did this and then you KNOW that you own all of your content and although slightly harder to get to grips with you can always start with Wordpress until you know the ropes.

    The last time I fiddled with it, the user friendliness of Weebly seem to made me believe it missed this feature. Thanks for pointing this one!

    hi,

    Why don't you try out with ehow or other sites like whatwherenhow . There you can write and earn more.

    It is best you borrow some money off someone go with out food for a week. Get your own domain name (not much) and a bit of hosting. If you gonna make the effort it is best to have your own.
    If you can do some graphics maybe you can do some gigs for money in fiverr - google it for more info.
    Cheers Bruce.

    Whatever type of blog or free site you use, it would be pretty much the same as the others -

    affiliate marketing, advertisements of services you offer, etc.

    Some networks like Hub Pages have stricter rules about affiliate links (they make you split adsense and amazon earnings with them, about 50/50. sounds a little harsh but its their site).
