There are several choices in creating a website to earn money online, you can either choose to design a website from scratch yourself or use a professional ready-made web template to build a website for your online business. Whatever your choice is, there are several things to think about and ask yourself from the start:
1. Do you need a shopping cart or an e-commerce solution on your website?
2. Do you want to reserve some space to display articles?
3. Would you like to make money with advertising programs (such as Google AdSense, Kontera Ad Link and, etc)? If yes, you'll need to plan for on-site advertising space in the website design.
4. Do your website design need to be interactive for site visitors?
5. Are you going to use a content management system (CMS) to run your website?
6. Is there a need to add audio or video player on your website?
