The Secrets of How to Make Money with Your Website

The Secrets of How to Make Money with Your Website

by: Shawn Ventura

SHAWN VENTURA FORMERLY OF TECHPIZZA.COM - NOW CREATOR OF FINALCUTPROSTUDIOBLOG.

If you have a website that sells products or services, good luck. That is very difficult. It works better to have a website that’s helps promote and existing business that sells products or services. This article is about an Internet business that makes its money through traffic and advertising.

Secret #1. You don't have to buy anything. You don't have to pay someone to design and build your website, you can do it yourself. The trend now is for real and honest websites, not flashy expensive ones. Blogs are incredibly popular. You'd be better off righting a daily blog about your business or idea than paying $10,000.00 to have someone make it. Most web hosting services have free website building tools. Yahoo has a really good one.

Secret #2 You don't have to pay anyone to get traffic to your site. You don't have to pay for advertising, search engine optimization, or search engine submission. You do have to create as many link exchanges as you can, send out press releases, and promote your site in any way you can.

SECRET #3 Your website can't be your only job. Do not quit your job to create a web-based business. A website business is much cheaper and less risky than opening a restaurant or a real estate agency. It costs a few hundred dollars a year to run if you do all the work yourself.

SECRET #4 You have to have patience. You will not make money overnight. You need to have a website on a general subject. "Entertainment" or "Jobs" are great subjects. The parasites of mealworms are not. Some search engines take a year or more to get into the top search pages.

SECRET #5 Google is the best. Yahoo, Ebay and Amazon all have great affiliate programs, but no one compares to Google. Google's software, payout and reach are second to none. If a program seems rinky-dink it is.

SECRET #6 You have to love what you do. It's been two years in the making, hundreds of hours of research, and hundreds of hours of creating web pages and promotion. I'm making money, but my hourly wage right now is probably about $1 per hour. And it's worth every penny.

RUDY GUILIANI FOR PRESIDENT


ON 9/11 I WAS IN NEW YORK. WHEN OUR PRESIDENT WAS IN A BUNKER AND THE ENTIRE CITY, COUNTRY AND WORLD LOOKED TO A LEADER GIULIANI WAS THERE. HE WALKED TOWARDS THE TOWERS AND TOLD EVERYONE THAT WE WOULD "GET THROUGH THIS." A VERY IMPORTANT MOMENT IN OUR HISTORY. HE IS BRAVE, SMART, AN A TRULY AMAZING PERSON.
HE'S GOT MY VOTE.

I KNOW THIS ISNT FINAL CUT RELATED. MLB STEROIDS.


YOU WANT HE HOME RUNS. YOU WANT THE IMPOSSIBLE. THREE DAYS STRAIGHT PITCHING. EVERYONE KNOW THAT PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES TAKE LEGAL AND ILLEGAL DRUGS TO WIN. GET RID OF IT ALL TOGETHER OR STOP TALIKNG ABOUT IT. I JUST WORRY ABOUT THE KIDS WHO ARE DOING THIS IN 10TH GRADE. THAT'S SICK.
I STILL THINK ROGER CLEMENS IS GREAT.

FOR ABOUT $1300 BUCKS FINAL CUT STUDIO IS ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED TO MAKE A FEATURE FILM, WEBSITE, TV SHOW OR HOME MOVIE.

FINAL CUT- VIDEO EDITING SOFTWARE, MOTION-EFFECT AND COMPOSITING SOFTWARE, COLOR- COLOR CORRECTION SOFTWARE, COMPRESSOR-VIDEO COMPRESSION SOFTWARE, SOUNDTRACK PRO- SOUND EDITING SOFTWARE AND DVD STUDIO PRO-DVD AUTHORING SOFTWARE. WOW. THAT'S ALOT FOR THE PRICE. IT ALL WORKS WELL.
AN HONORABLE MENTION TO GARAGEBAND OF THE ILIFE FREE SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH EVERY MAC. AMAZING LITTLE PACKAGE THAT ENABLES THE NOVICE TO MAKE "RIGHTS FREE" MUSIC FOR THEIR EDITS.TO BE CONTINUED...

WATCH TV ONLINE FOR FREE "THE OFFICE"

WATCH "THE BBC OFFICE" ONLINE. IN MY OPINION MUCH FUNNIER THAN THE U.S. VERSION. ITS AMAZING YOU CAN WATCH HEROES, MY NAME IS EARL, SPORTS, ALL ONLINE NOW. SOME ARE EVEN FULL SCREEN. CHECK IT OUT. http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/theoffice/clips/

HDV WHAT'S THE DEAL?


HDV WHAT IS IT? ITS AMAZING. IT'S AN HD FORMAT YOU CAN RECORD TO MINI-DV. THE CAMERAS ARE LESS THAN $1000 DOLLARS NOW. IT'S COMPRESSED BUT EVEN AT SD QUALITY IT LOOKS GREAT UNLESS YOU HAVE A LOT OF MOTION. NOT GOOD FOR SPORTS VIDEOS. IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A HIGH QUALITY SPOT OR MOVIE, ITS THE WAY TO GO.

MORE HERE.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDV

FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS WATCH IT ONLINE

JERMAINE AND BREET HAVE A WACKY SENSE OF HUMOR. A LITTLE RAW AND TOTALLY ORIGINAL. MEL THE DIE HARD FAN IS PRICELESS AND MURRAY THE MANAGER MIGHT BE FUNNIER THAN THEM BOTH. WATCH THE "BOWIE IN SPACE" AND "LEGGY BLONDE " AND YOU'LL BE HOOKED.

DEF LEPPARD SAVED MY LIFE.


It's the tentative title of my new screenplay. Catchy HUh?

Its centers around the one moment in 1983 when I brought a boom box on a bus during a field trip to NYC to see Snoopy the musical. I pressed play and "Unta-Gleiben-Glouten-Globen came on the speakers and all the cool girls came to the back of the bus. I went from geek to one of the cool kids instantly. Later I figured out it was better to hang out with the geeks and freaks rather than the cool kids but that's for the movie. Feathered hair parted in the middle, DEF LEPPARD, AC/DC, MIAMI VICE, MTV AND linen jackets. Its like Waynes World meets Napolean Dynamite.

More later.

30 ROCK IS THE BEST THING SINCE THE BRITISH OFFICE!


I haven't been this excited about a show in year's! Tina Fey is a genius. Alec Baldwin is brilliant.
I watched all 5 epidodes at NBC.com and I watched them again.
Baldwin impersonating Tracy's parents is unforgetable. Go cougars. I'm gay for Jamie!
Ridiculous waffles and the page guy is well you know how I feel. NBC needs to get that stuff on demand. I watched it in between downloading widgeta and making this blog a blidget.

Freaking amazing. CLIPS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

The Castle Shoot


We shot 13 scenes in one day. We shot with two mini dv cameras in 9 hours.
We shot at one location.

It has inspired me to make a feature. We will shoot HDV and have a feature in 6-8 days.

Wish us luck!

Final Cut Pro vs. Avid

I used Avid for 14 years. I hated Final Cut at first, but it's taking over my job. I changed the user settings to match my Avid settings and now I like it. there are things it does better. Trimming,
Logging, some editing functions and definitely some effects. Motion is getting closer to after effects too. It has cameras and lights now. Color is confusing and clunky because its new.
I dig it. I cut a 15 minute short film on my laptop. 6 hrs of footage at DV25. No external drives.
I use after effects, motion, garageband for some music, it was great.

I have a Mac Book with 160 gigs, 1 gig of ram, and INTEL CORE DUO. $1300 REFURBISHED.

PARTY SCENE FROM "THE CASTLE"

video

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

It’s true. Yes, I do work in TV but everywhere you turn there is someone buying a mac and installing Final Cut. The student, neighbor, hobbyist and pro. Some are dabbling in garageband, some iweb, and some even Motion. One thing is absolutely true. Never before has
a software moved so fast. I haven’t used a Mac for four years and just last week I started editing a short film in Final Cut. “The Castle”. A story of two lost brothers who reunite after 20 years when their parents leave them their house which is next to a nuclear power plant and a prison.
