This is post #3 in the "How To Make Money Series".
I've referenced Weebly before in the two previous posts in this series as a resource for getting up a website. Weebly is just one of many free website builders that you can use to design a website especially if you have little web design skills.
In this post, I'm going to show you some ways in which you can use Weebly to make money.
You will need:
- A Weebly Pro Account
- Affiliate Marketing Training
- Multiple email accounts
- Domain names
- Web Hosting
>> Create Affiliate Websites
Weebly is great for creating affiliate websites. They're very easy to set up using the drag and drop features and come with plenty of templates to choose from.
Weebly allows you to create great looking landing pages in little time while you concentrate on doing the things you're good at like writing content, link building and getting traffic. No laboring over graphics software and dealing with complicated code.
Weebly also seems to rank well in the Google so getting free organic traffic is an added benefit of using this website builder for affiliate marketing.

Once you've played around with Weebly a little, you'll feel as if you can do anything with it. Why not put your new found web design skills to work by designing sites for other people?
Don't be shy at doing this at all. There are still many small business owners who don't have or realize the benefits of having a web presence. What's worst is if you explained the benefits to them, they won't know where to start or how to build a website. You can use your knowledge and your easy to use web design resource to help them, all while getting paid.
So where do you start? Local businesses, like the ones in your community need this service if they don't already have it. Even some businesses have terrible looking and terribly optimized service. Use Weebly to make money by helping local businesses and individuals who want to have their own web presence.
- Tip: Set up your own web design portfolio site where you can showcase your work and have others contact you.
You don't have to wait for someone to contact you in order to make money designing sites with Weebly.
You can design your own niche websites and set them up yourself. You might need a Weebly pro Account for this as the basic account only lets you design up to two websites. Your other option is to sign up for multiple accounts using different email addresses that you own.
Make sure to monetize your websites before you list them and quite possibly get them earning money before you sell them off.
Here's a simple process to building and selling your Weebly sites for a profit.
- Find a niche - make sure to do niche research, keyword research and research your competition (just like if you were doing it for yourself.) This will set you up to get as much profit which will have a good effect on your asking price.
- Create your Weebly site complete with all the pages, relevant content and monetization then hit publish. Be sure to optimize your site for its keywords.
- Register a domain - make sure that the domain is descriptive of the topic you chose and if possible get the main keyword in there. Dot coms are always best.
- Host your domain - The good thing about Weebly is that you don't need to purchase a hosting plan. You can host your site right on Weebly so that's a plus right there.
- List your website in a marketplace - There are sites online where people go to buy and sell websites. You will need to list yours with a site like Flippa.com. Most webmaster forums also have a place for buying and selling websites.
- Tip: Learn more about the process of website flipping if you want to use this method to make money with your Weebly sites.
Another great way to make money with Weebly is to tell about this great service. You can make money this way by signing up for the Weebly Affiliate program.
Weebly will give you 25% of any sales you refer. Even though its a free service, there are limitations and people will upgrade their account. This is great because you're referring people to a quality service and if they upgrade, this shows that they're happy with what they're getting.
The Weebly affiliate program will pay you via the Shareasale network at the end of each month.
