By Ivy Liu
Are you trying to make money online? Thinking about making your own website or getting a free website?
Whether you are just starting out with a new business, or you already have an offline business
to promote -- there are many reasons you really should make your own website. Here are the top 5:
1) Make money online with credibility and control
If you are starting a new online business or new website, you must make your own website for brand credibility and
control. Spend your time to advertise YOUR business name instead ofadvertising another website's name.
For example, you'll do better with a website like www.mybusinessname.com instead
ofwww.freeuglysite.com/members/mybusinessname which will impose restrictions and can be shut down any time.
2) Maximize your online affiliate income

affiliate website page to promote. However, you'll find that many websites will not let you to advertise an
Also, you are stuck with whatever "free" website page you are given...so you cannot customize or improve the
website to differentiate your business and close the sale. Without your own website, you lose control over the
process, your business, and your online income.
3) Provide value and information to customers
If you make your own website, you can provide more VALUE to your customers instead of a lot of ugly ads and
limitations that the free sites impose. You'll be judged by visitors based on how valuable your website information
is to them. You'll have to make your own website for full control over your content and business.
4) Improve advertising cost and effectiveness with your website
When you do advertise in other places like newspapers, you can write less and pay much less. Given that papers
charge by the line, you'll save a lot of money (and be more effective) by including your short website address in
the ad instead of using a long and unattractive free domain name.
5) Generate online business leads and/or sales effectively
Your website works ALL THE TIME to help you make money online by getting you more online business leads and sales.
Knocking door to door is not practical, effective, or safe -- so why not make your own website and give your
customers another way to reach you or buy from you -- online and any time?
