Here's a few examples of what I've thrown together.
I have others, nothing spectacular, but everything I've put online has been pretty simple to put up. There are a ton of different ways to generate income online...you just need to look around for what suits you.
Blogger is very easy to use and I would recommend it to anybody who's never built their own website. It's a good way to become familiar with websites.
Wordpress is a pretty good blog software also. It just takes a little bit of reading and following directions to implement it into your site.
I've used Dreamweaver and NVU to build sites in the past. Both are WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). You're still going to need to use some html here and there. All it takes is to google whatever you're trying to use it for. You shouldn't be scared of it.
I've used GoogleAds in the past, I've never had too much success with it, but I like tinkering with it every once in awhile and will hopefully find a good formula that works for me.
I haven't used any article marketing yet (hate writing), but I will begin to soon.
A good resource for you guys to advertise for free would be Squidoo. You create lenses(1 page article sites) and just talk about whatever it is you're affiliated with. Here are a few lenses that I've made.
If you make a lens, make sure to have at least 3-4 text modules. I read somewhere the other day that it takes 3 or 4 before google will index your lens. I don't know if it's true...I still need to add some on a few of my lenses.
Well, hopefully some of this information may be helpful to some of you. I'm sure a good bit of this has probably been covered before on the forum, but maybe some of the people who are new to the site and affiliate marketing in general might find something that will help them.
I've forgotten to mention that the blog about Thailand is actually just something I started when I first found blogger and only have that site for fun. It's purpose is not to generate income. That being said, there are affiliate links there and I have made a couple of sales. Little things add up.
