Building Websites for Money
A College Student's Perspective

Earn income as a college student by building websites for money. College students are already exposed to the hard part of creating a website: researching and writing. Why not make money in college by doing what you do every day?

I've personally tutored 2 students how to build websites for money. Both students had hobbies (baseball card trading and hiking) that made excellent ideas for websites. The students now make a nice part-time income for working about an hour a day.

Everyone knows a lot about something, and if you share it with the rest of the world, you will get paid for it. As college students, we are exposed to constant researching and writing assignments -- this makes it easy to learn about a topic, and write it up in an interesting way.

How Do I Make Money

Once you've created a website (the right way), you will be able to make money through it in a variety of different ways. The most common way of monetizing a website is with Google Adsense, which are image or contextual ads placed within the content of your writings. When these ads are clicked by visitors, the owner of the website gets a certain amount of money (usually $0.05 to $2.00 per click). The more visitors to your website, the more clicks, the more money from Adsense. The sky is the limit...

Other ways to make money through your website include:

  • Affiliate Ads

  • eBooks

  • Membership Fees

  • Finders Fees

  • Donations

  • Drop Shipping e-Goods

  • And Much More

Cheap vs. Quality Site Builders

When I first started out, I thought that I could learn the ropes through time and practice...I quickly found out how complex the world of site building was. I started a Wordpress blogging site, put in about 4 hours a day for a couple months, and saw about 10 visitors total. There are certain things you need to know to generate traffic to your website. Without traffic, no clicks, no money, period.

This site is built with Site Build-It!, site building web-based software. I've learned as much (if not more) information on Site Build-It! than I have in my college major. Everything you need to know about generating traffic, ranking high in the search engines, creating your site look and feel, and much more is included in the SBI package.

Work Involved

Building websites for money is not going to make you rich by this time next year, in a sense. However, working hard, and working the right way will generate $100, $1,000, $10,000, or more a year once your website "snowball" starts rolling.
