Essential tools to build a great website

One of the things I love to do first thing every morning is to check the Internet, to find out how much money I made over the night. Like a fisherman checking on his trap, I am thrilled to see money accumulating in my account while I sleep. The beauty of earning an income from the Internet is that my websites continue make money for me from all parts of the world, without requiring my presence. I can actually know where the money comes from, and how much, and test the pages to continue improving them. Wouldn't you want that too?

Before you get the wrong idea, let me clear the air about how I make money from the web. HappyJoblessGuy is NOT about earning money from some online pyramid schemes. It is not about Multi-Level Marketing (even though I have no issue about people earning through MLM). It is not about online forex trading. Apparently, many people seem to think that if you want to earn a living online without holding a job, you need to be involved in pyramid schemes, MLM or online forex trading. Well, I am going to show you an honest way of generating income from the web but it's going to involve a degree of hard work from you. For sure, nothing comes easy, and that includes building a machine that makes money online. And I have to say this: many of you will be unsuccessful. Some of you may be unsuccessful many times before you succeed - and if you're one of those who succeed only after many tries, be comforted to know I am one of them too. You need to keep on trying, keep on improving. If you cannot face failure, then the likelihood of a web-generating income is dim. Indeed, to do it well involves a certain level of "smartness". But the fruit of the labour will be more than worth the effort. And - it is entirely possible!

Before you start dreaming up dollar signs before your eyes, let me tell you this: it took me years to learn how to do it properly. And that's after I have learned to build websites. So before we start earning money, we need to start with the fundamentals, which is, the basic requirements for building a website. Today's chapter will sound elementary to those who have built websites. Nevertheless I need to go through it, for the benefit of people who have never built a single website before.

Today you can have your websites built and hosted without ever needing to be hands on. For example, you can sign up an account with PBase, Tripod, Blogger, etc, and within an hour, you have a website of your own. If you intend to earn serious, long-time income, that is not the way to do it. You want something that is 100% your own.

Once you have your own website (not an account with Blogger, PBase, etc.), you will realise the amount of freedom in your hands. It is this freedom which I would wish upon you, and I'd share this knowledge with all who care to listen. As I have mentioned, I am providing you this information for free. Unlike some websites, you do not have to pay money to receive my e-book. You just need to be patient while the chapters are developed.

Essential Tools to build a Great Website

If you were to ask me, what are the tools you need to build a great website, I can count them with the fingers of one hand.

There are five basic elements you need to build not just a website, any website, but a great one. The fact of the matter is, you can hire a web programmer to build a whole website for you, bypassing the need to be acquainted with any tool. But to own a really great website, I would urge you to do it yourself. You can't be the captain of your own ship if you can't tell stern from starboard. Occasionally, you may get a programmer to do things which you aren't familiar with, but the bulk of it should be done by you. The good news is , you don't need to know much about programming; all you need are the five essential tools which I am about to share with you. Learn it, and you've taken five major steps forward towards earning an income without holding a job.

I have received emails from people asking to give them personal coaching. I am sorry, but I do not have time to do that, even if you're willing to pay me money.

I prefer to spend all my time writing and rewriting the pages of this website, until it is perfect. It is very important to me that I get it right. Your very success depends on it, so I want this to be the most useful website you have ever read. Be patient as this website develops. I need time to organise the topics. If you don't understand anything, read and reread the articles until they make sense to you. Through this website, I will be your guiding light, but I will not be spoon feeding you.

In the next five pages of this chapter, I will go through each essential tool one by one. At the end of this chapter I will recap what we have learned. You will realise, if you haven't yet, that earning a living without holding a job requires you to learn skills that you may not have learned before. On the other hand, you may have built many websites, and are wondering what's new that I want to share. Once again, I urge you to be patient as the topics are developed.
