One Of The Benefits Of Having An Online Site Is That You Can Make Money With It!

Of course one of the main reasons for having an online site is to bring more recognition to your business! The Internet is "open" 24 hours a day and seven days a week - including holidays! That means people will be able to view your site any time of the day or night! That can only be good for your business, your organization or your cause!

But there is another benefit of having an online site and that is that you could be making money onine with your site as well!

One of the ways that you could be doing this is to add advertising to your site - just like the newspapers and magazines do. If you don't want to go out and get the advertising yourself you can take advantage of the sites / programs that will find the advertisers for you. However be warned that you should only use legitimate sites!.

The Google Adsense program is one of the best legitimate sites! You sign up for their free program and if your site is approved then you will be able to add ads to your site. When visitors to your site click on the ads you earn money!

Want to find out more about this program? Then just go to The Adsense Consultant's Blog to find out more about this program.

Fashion Designer - What Do You Need?

I got a comment on my Working From Home Blog from someone who wanted to become a fashion designer.

Even though they are still in school and have yet to start studying fashion design, they really wanted to get started right away.

I had a couple of suggestions for them.

  • start a web presence right away! Start a website or a blog right away - even if it is a free one. The purpose of this is to start a web presence right away! Let people know that you are out there!

  • Do some research online. The Internet is one great, big library and if you do just a little research you will start to find information that can help you get started.

  • If you want to be able to earn money right away then I suggest that you sign up for Google's Adsense program where you earn money online by placing ads on your site. There are also countless other ways that you will be able to make money with your website or blog and I suggest that you see my Working From Home Blog so that you can check out some of the different ways that you can earn money with your website or blog
No matter what kind of career you are planning or want to have, you really should have some sort of web presence and the best way to do that is to have a site of your own!

What Is Search Engine Optimization AND Do You Need It If You Have A Website?

What is search engine optimization and is it something that you should have for your website?

Search engine optimization simply means that when people do a search on the search engines for information that is related to the content on your website - you want your website to show up in their search engine results - and the higher your page appears in the search engine results the better!

To give you a simple explanation, say that you have a website where you sell flowers. So when someone does a websearch for "flowers" then you want your site to show up in their search engine results so hopefully they will click on your link and visit your site (and hopefully buy flowers from your site).

Unfortunately it's a little bit more complicated than that. I'm sure that if you do a search for "flowers" you would get millions of linKs. But even so it is still a great example to show to help illustrate about what it means to be able to get a high search engine ranking.

So if you have a website of your own then optimizing your site for the search engines is very important and will benefit you (and your business) very much!

The La Mott Community Garden Website!

I was asked to help create another website this time for the La Mott Community Garden Group.

The La Mott Community Garden Group has a community garden in the village of LaMott which is located in Cheltenham Township right next to Philadelphia.

The La Mott Community Garden Group consists of residents and other gardeners who have gardening plots on land that is currently owned by Temple University.

Unfortunately it looks as though the garden may be in trouble because since the land is owned by Temple University it is essentially their land. That land and the property that used to be Temple's Tyler School of Art is currently for sale which means that whoever they sell to would then own the land that the community garden is on.

Being a resident of LaMott, I have had a chance to attend the community meetings and at the last meeting in June, the residents were informed that there was currently no buyer for the Temple property so the fate of the garden is really not known at this time.

So if you would like to add your support for this most-worthy group, please be sure to visit their website. I have provided a link to their website below:

Should You Have A Website?

Should you have a website?

If you have a business or work from home then YES you should have a website of some kind!

The most obvious reason why is because when you have a website on the Internet it can be seen 24 hours a day and seven days a week - including holidays as well! That means that you have more potential website visitors because your website presence can be seen at any time. And if you are running a business then the more website visitors that you get the more potential clients and customers that you will get!

Your business can be small (just a one-man operation - meaning just you) or it can be a large corporation. I'm sure that you have seen all of the big businesses that have a web presence. That is because they know why it is so important to have a web presence!

If the thought of having a website intimidates you then it really shouldn't. All you are doing is growing the reach of your business by letting a broader number of people be able to access your website 24 hours a day and 7 days a week - including holidays! Wouldn't it be great for your business if more people knew about it?
