if i have no technical skills, can i still be a website owner?

i am planning to buy a website that claims that is already making $50 per month (passive income) so just wondering if i can sustain it or exceed its earning potential.

let us say that the seller is legit and the site is making that much as it claims, what is the possibility of that site's earning to fall or worst to not earn anymore?

i have no technical skills so what are my options for it to earn at least $50/mo forever (if possible)?

i am also willing to learn but what should i learn at least?

cheers!

      You can own a website without being a webmaster or web developer. Now, the site brings $50 a month, it could grow or fall. What if the owner is spending $45 a month for traffic and is not telling you?... If he is not spending anything the site gets traffic from search engines.... you will need to know how to maintain your ranking (SEO).

      My advice is to get yourself a blog and learn.

        You don't necessarily have to have technical skills. But you have to have marketing skills. That's a must.

        You can get free advice, or even find or hire someone with technical skills. But most of the marketing will fall on you. Learn and keep improving your marketing skills as though your business and financial life depended on it ... because it will.

        So you want to make money without skills, without learning the basic... and i guest you want to make quick cash as well .

        OKAY
        This is a real business. And you must build a serious plan and above all, take action.
        You don't need any skill to run a word press bog for example. Look, all the questions you're asking here. I think it's time to stop asking question and start implementing.

        Now, let me warm you; if you're not able to learn how to run a word press blog or any basic skill essential , so you're not ready to take action, so you're not ready to make good money online.

        Summary: the advices given above are usefull, so stop giving excuse and start implementing what you're learning.

        Good luck.

            But at no point in the entire thread have you offered any information about what kind of established website it is, how it's monetized, where its traffic comes from, where its alleged income comes from, or any other information from which anyone here can possibly offer any informed opinion on what kind of skills might be required to maintain/increase its income, let alone on how easily outsourceable/acquirable those skills might be for you (even if we did know the first thing about you, which we don't).

            And that's why - in spite of several people trying to help you - nobody here can possibly even begin to answer the substantive question you're actually asking.

            We don't know, and can't guess, because you haven't given us any relevant information at all from which we might offer anything even approaching a sensible guess.

            Surely you can see this?

              There's the point. To be honest, I would strongly advise you against buying that website altogether. You seem to lack everything at this point that would be necessary to make it a successful story, but most of all basic understarding of business.

              There''s no such thing as $50/mo forever, at least not in the online business. Put money in the bank, that may be able to that (if the banking ystem does not crash. $50/mo is like nothing. You can't do any outsourcing with that amount, you lack any necessary skills and knowledge, it seems that you don't really want to learn it, and honestly even your attitude is bad.

              Even at this small scale this can only work if you think of it as a business investment with a plan and not as a no-effort ticket to forever income...

    You will need to learn how to add fresh content to the site to attract visitors. That means you or a writer will be writing articles related to the site's topic and posting them on the site. You'll need to learn how to use keywords effectively - blending them into the content naturally without keyword stuffing.

    Discovering ways to bring traffic to your site should be your main mission. Use the search function on this forum to find tips about getting traffic.

    If you think you'll be able to buy this website and not do anything to keep it earning, you are mistaken. Getting a website to the point where it makes a passive income of $50 or more may take months, depending on your niche. Perhaps you should ask the site's seller what is being done now to bring traffic to the site. If the seller is being truthful, you'll have an idea of what you need to do to keep the site profitable.

    If it's a Wordpress site, there are online tutorials. Ask the seller for help in uploading the site to a new host. Or, go to fiverr for help. Most sites can be updated by accessing the administration panel. These are all things you need to research BEFORE buying a site.

      so do i have to learn all of these?
      There's your problem. Look at the number of question marks in your posts in this thread. You are looking ONLY for answers. You don't have to be a techie to learn the basic of site building/site development/site management - but you have to be willing to put some time/effort in.

      Thing is - no sense in buying any website if you don't know what to do with it once you have it. A site earning $50 (or $500 or $5000) a month will begin to decline if not maintained and updated and promoted.

      is this just a generic reply?

      because you dont even answer what this thread is all about
      That's a bad attitude. You don't get to control what people say and he made a very good point

      if you're not able to learn how to run a word press blog or any basic skill essential , so you're not ready to take action, so you're not ready to make good money online.
      If you buy a site or build a site you need to learn how to work with that site - how to add content - how to promote it, etc. It's not difficult to learn but YOU have to put in that time and effort.

      As far as not having technical skills, it all depends on the type of website as to what you can get away with. If you're buying a custom-coded site or even a heavily-customized site, I'd stay away. You don't know if there are bugs or deliberate backdoors in the site's code and with any software -- from that game on your phone to the programs directing the Mars rover -- requires updates from time to time as security holes are found. At $50/month, you don't have the budget to pay for anyone to fix these for you.

      If, on the other hand, the site is running on a common platform like Wordpress, it could work. But you had better learn to use (not necessarily code) Wordpress (or whatever other platform it's running on). Again, $50/month isn't enough of a margin to hire out the help you might need.

      I'd also suggest that forever will likely turn out to be a lot shorter than you think it is if you don't put any work into your site. Even if you do work at your site, there's a strong chance that your cash flow will dry up. New competition is always emerging, Google changes its algorithms, and potential customers generally stop trusting a site when it looks like it was designed a long time ago and hasn't been updated in a while. Ever hear of MySpace? GeoCities? Excite? Pets.com? And anyway, any business owning is a business worth growing. If you want guaranteed, passive income open up a bank account.

      Anything can be outsourced. You could even hire a world-famous CEO to run the whole show for you while you sit at the beach all days drinking margaritas waiting for your... ummm... $50/month to roll in. I'm not sure how you're going to make payroll though...

      The fact is, at $50/month you basically have no wiggle room whatsoever. Quality talent -- no matter if it's technical, marketing or anything else -- is not cheap. And I have never heard of anyone who's started a successful business without any knowledge of the industry and without any desire to work on it. You might be able to get away with that if you buy an established business -- and let your already assembled crack team make all the decisions for you -- but you'll never start a business that way. And don't fool yourself: a business making $50/month is nowhere near an established business. That's a rounding error.

    For a newbie - I think WordPress is a great platform to learn and use.

    If the site uses another platform - then you might have a hard time running the site.

    Wordpress is just very simple to use and work with!

    To answer your questions ...

    what is the possibility of that site's earning to fall or worst to not earn anymore?
    - That will depend on HOW the site is earning money online. It will also depend on what type of daily/weekly maintenance the site owner has been doing.

    i have no technical skills so what are my options for it to earn at least $50/mo forever (if possible)?
    - Your options are to build up the daily traffic flow to the site. Since the site is already built and ready to go - then you do not need to work on it too much. Just learn how to publish content and you are good to go!

    i am also willing to learn but what should i learn at least?
    - You should learn internet marketing strategies to start driving more targeted traffic to the site.

    The key to making money from a site is in the targeted traffic you drive to it. You need a massive amount of TARGETED Traffic on a daily basis, if you want the site to make you money on the long run.

    Before you buy a website - you need to ask the right questions!

    I suggest you to come up with all of the questions you have about the site and ask them to the vendor.

    You can ask things like .... what is the daily/weekly maintenance for the site to keep generating that income every month?

    You want to make sure you know EVERYTHING before you make the investment!

    I hope this helps!

    I wish you the best of the best!

    Cheers!

    $50 per month income for how much? I am asking here how much you can invest on your own blog and not to buy that site. Don't fall on just buying but teach yourself on how to generate ideas on how to multiple your source of income.

    Plan ahead.

    For sure there's need some effort to maintain the site that you're planning to buy. Why they are selling it? How much is their maintenance to run that site that earn only $50 per month?

    I'll show an example of a good way to monetize a blog. It would cost you something at first but on the next few months, I can say you can earn. You'll just have to research, plan, outsource and act fast.

    Look at these steps as an example:

    1. Buy a domain (usually less than $3 when you have a coupon to use.
    2. Get a hosting which usually can get $1 on the first month at hostgator.
    3. Put up your blog using profitable niches. Let say for example "MMO". Many said to stay away from it but I don't.
    4. Create a review site.
    5. Review upcoming products on JVzoo and WarriorPlus. Of course you'll need to buy it or ask the product creator if he can give you a review copy.
    6. Build a list. Get autoresponder which usually you can get for free on the first month or if your list is less than 500.
    7. Let someone create articles for you using iwriter or fiverr so you can use it to guest post to high traffic sites. On your signature, put a link to your review site.
    8. On creating a review, focus on all the benefits for potential customers. Make an honest review so that the product creator will update his product for the better.
    9. Check the reviews from other buyers because you might miss something very important to put on your review.
    10. Create an optin form to let the visitors subscribe on your honest reviews.
    11. Send them every review, either the product is good or bad. Make a rating of each review.
    12. Order quality backlinks at fiverr for $5 twice a month.

    Most products out there are giving out 50 to 100% commission.

    Scenario 1: When the potential buyers find your review so honest, they might buy from other products that you've reviewed. They might also subscribe to your list so you can send them reviews regularly.

    Scenario 2: When you have so many good guest posts to high traffic sites, you can get visitors to potentially buy from your affiliate links. This would also make your site pagerank higher because you can get baclinks from authority sites.

    Scenario 3: When you have backlinks from authority sites that you get from your order at fiverr and your regular blog guest postings, you can get regular traffic too.

    Scenario 4: When you have a good quality review sites, more product owners would want you to review their products for free.

    Scenario 5: You can earn more when you have high ranking review site or blog if you review some products or services at reviewme.com or any other similar sites. Some people are even paying $100 and up when a high page rank website owner review their product which means you can earn $100 or more per review in the future.

    let us say that the seller is legit and the site is making that much as it claims, what is the possibility of that site's earning to fall or worst to not earn anymore?

    i have no technical skills so what are my options for it to earn at least $50/mo forever (if possible)?

    i am also willing to learn but what should i learn at least?

    cheers!
    Absolutely, positively without a shadow of a doubt you do not need technical skills right off the bat.

    Good gosh many of the members here became Website Owners and Blog Owners without even knowing how to barely Copy and Past ( I did 6.5 years ago and at that point I could not even tell you how to save a file )

    You will learn as you go.

    Do not sweat the small stuff

    So you pretend to make money without any skill whatsoever?

    This is what is going to happen: you will buy something (a site, a WSO, whatever) -> you will have no idea what to do with it -> you will lose your shirt -> you will cry that everything is a scam -> you will conduct no self criticism on your own lack of common sense.

    That depends on the website itself and your long term outlook.

    If you can find a site for sale with a CMS backend that is simple data entry and pushing buttons, sure, you can make that work. How long that works out depends on industry trends. You're pretty much at the mercy of whatever it is that you originally bought, unable to change it.

    Why would you want to invest in a website knowing that you dont know how to promote it (or promote anything for that matter)? Technical skills are 2% of 98% required for internet marketing success. Learn how to start a site by yourself and make it profitable, then go and purchase other websites if you see potential in them. Right now your entire *perceived* notion of how to make money with this site when it's only pulling in $50 a month.

      Tech skills probably are only 2% if all you do is sigwhore a forum.

    One of the main reasons why people buy established websites is that they have no technical skills, so you don't need to worry about this.

    Yes. Yes you can. All you have to do is continue what the ex-owner of the website was doing, if he will agree to give you this information of course. If not, then you can still do it through reverse-engineering.

    When buying a website, make sure you check that the traffic is real. This can be easily checked with google analytics, statcounter user account, and so on. Having genuine website traffic (preferable organic) for a few months, is usually an indicator that the website has value. Try to rely on facts rather than just "assuming".

    Start with learning the basics. Learn how FTP and Hosting a website works, how to update it, and how to get links to it. If you can afford a VA, you can outsource the process, but you will need more than a $50/month website for this.



    Hope this helps..
    Cheers!

    Okay, let's say you buy a website. Do you at least know how to insert your own ads and affiliate links?

    thanks for all the reply

    to all who say that i am arrogant, i assure you that i am not. you may have just misunderstood my reply

    one reason why i want to buy an established website is because if the ex-owner is willing to let me know how he got traffic to that site then it will be easier for me (i think) to learn than just by learning everything on my own. i will just duplicate whatever he did thru personal effort and outsourcing then hopefully i can make more sites that can earn $50/month and of course learn more on the process.

    do you think this approach is better compared to starting from scratch

    i appreciate all the help.

      Neither approach is better than the other. There is a clear trade-off either way. You just need to decide which one fits best with your personal outlook.

      You will have better access to potential short term profits by acquiring an established site. But the longer ahead you look and the higher the upside that you desire, the more likely it is that you should learn how to do it yourself.

      The downside for newbies learning to DIY is there won't be any short term profits. It will take you 6 to 12 months or more to learn how to build something half way respectable from scratch, and that's if you are technically inclined and willing to spend at least a few hours a day on it. Then there's going to be a period of trial and error projects trying to make something stick. To be perfectly realistic, it will probably be 3-5 years before you've got a chance to really profit nicely on something. On the bright side, once you have a good handle on things you'll know that you can implement any idea you could ever dream up.

      Most people can't handle that kind of time commitment though. That's why the internet's big success stories are pretty much all people who thought of things as a hobby in the early stages. It's easier to not make money when you're just having fun.
