You should know how to build a website if you own domain names. Parking domains can be profitable but you’ll need a whole boatload to pay the bills and it can take some time to build traffic. Getting high rankings in the search engines can be difficult because of generic ‘parked’ content and you’re forced to ‘share’ your advertising revenue with the parking company. On the other hand, if you build a website you have control over the custom content and the revenue stream. It’s easy to build a website even if you have no programming experience and you can be up and running in a few hours with a little work.
There are 3 basic choices when developing a website for profit. You can build a website for AdSense and share click-through revenue with Google or a similar advertising broker. You can build a website as an affiliate site. With this type of website you will promote another 3d party website and encourage your visitors to buy from that site. You’ll usually get paid a set commission for every sale or referral. Lastly, you can build a website to sell your own service or product. This type of website is more of a business and requires more time. On the other hand you get to keep all the profit yourself!
The choice to build a website and what type of website to build depends largely on your expertise in the subject matter. If you have a domain name ‘rocketscience.com’ you’ll probably want to sell AdSense or possibly an affiliate program if you can write on the subject. Of course, if you really are a rocket scientist you may want to open a consulting business or sell some cool technology you’ve invented. The more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it! No matter what choice you make, the most expensive choice is to not build a website at all. Parking profits are easy… but websites are where the money is.
